The Purpose Driven Marketer

Marketer, do you have a purpose for what you do everyday?

Can you clearly see how each activity you perform dovetails into your over all marketing plan?

If you don’t, then it’s time to get an overview.

When you order your Internet Marketing Bluprint, you get a customized overview of your business. You’ll receive:

  1. A one on one consultation with me called a discovery call. We spend this time finding out how I can best help you.
  2. A master plan of your business goals, and anticipated arrival times for each of them
  3. Detailed instructions on how to get yourself there. This includes flow charts which account for possible outcomes; checklists; project charts and accountability feedback forms (so I can restart you when you get stuck!)

This is not one-on- one mentoring, long term; this is a master plan of where you want your business to go this year, and suggested strategies for getting you there.

Delving into the supernatural

A lot of you spend a lot of your time looking into various self help programs. And ultimately, all of these programs will direct you back to the need for some type of higher power. If you are into Wicca, you may look to nature for your inspiration. If you are a budhist, you may think we are all coming back as another creature some day, and so you may look within and try to muster up the willpower to modify your behaviour.  If you belong to a group that is culturally religious,  you may look to your group for guidance, believing that God views your people as a whole, and not individually. Did I miss a group? Did I misrepresent what you believe? Forgive me if I have overgeneralized any of you with my limited knowledge of various belief systems. Where I actually was going with this was simply a logical point: Why not look to the very one who created

nature

The human will

and every race of people and their various groups

for divine guidance? Sometimes I think that in our systems we create in order to meet the creator, we overlook….the Creator

How to Make Money everyday

A lot of affiliate marketers and other internet marketers are trying to make money, but many of them aren’t making any money…right now.

That is something to think about…so here you are, clicking likes and posting articles, commenting on forums and signing up for new affiliate “opportunities”.  And if I asked you, “What are you doing” like if I visited your house and walked in your room where your computer is, and I said, “Dude…” (or dudette), like, whatcha doing? Can you stop and play a game of tennis” , you’d say, “Naw Dude/dudette/dawg depending on your zipcode and then I’d say “why not?” and you’d brush me off and turn back to your work. If you live in LA I’d say por kay no in my exaggerated Midwest drawl to make you laugh. If that didn’t work, I’d bounce upon and down on the bed or jump up and down on it with both feet, or finally bop a pillow on your head (which is what you need reaaallllly bad right now) until you screamed “LEAVE ME ALONE!!!  I’M WORKING ALREADY!” and then, (while grabbing the door handle for my quick exit) I’d yell back “So what’s it paying”?

Crickets. No not the game (you can’t play a game of cricket/basketball/tennis with your buddies when you’re a slave to the computer.

Internet marketer, are you a slave to your computer? Affiliate marketer, are you a slave to the newest new thing? Yea, I know you made a couple of sales. Once. Or maybe a trickle, last week. But are you earning a living wage? Cuz if you aren’t, it’s time for a plan

“They like me…they like me not”

They like Me! (sigh…they like me not :((

Reader, have you ever gone on your blog to check your notifications for what you thought was a great post, only to find…

“NObody LIKES ME>>>>…….” (sob).

You all know what I’m talking about…that little “like” feature that shows up when someone clicks on like.

It’s so affirming.

It’s so personal (ah, look at the little thumbnails of all my devout readers)

and (here’s the sad part) it so does NOT pay you any money.

Well, at least not immediately…though it can build online credibility (thanks, likers!)

Why then does everyone I talk to  feel like a loser when no one has liked their posts?

I think it’s because, we all like knowing that we are not being ignored in cyber space.

Isn’t it deflating when you post something and wonder who in the world, out their in internet land, got anything out of it…at all?

It makes me think of the saying “If a tree fell in the forest, and no one heard it, did it even make a noise”.

I think it would make more sense to say, “If a tree fell in the forest, yes, it probably made some noise and, yes, some living creature definitely heard it, and probably some humans, too”.

Now, they may not be yelling “timber.”

But it helped the woodsman get some upper arm strength.

It helped someone else get through the forest.

No one may hear your tree fall…today.

But the inspiration  you provide on your post might help someone find their way through the internet marketing forest tomorrow.

Thanks for all of you who like my posts and inspire me through your own.

“I blog, therefore, I am”

thinker-close.jpgReader, is that how you feel? Does the message out there seem to be, “Get a blog, or you are nobody”?

I see the effects of this mind set in a lot of blogs that I read.

Some blogs I see are hastily put up, with a whole bunch of “me, me, me” and accompanying chest thumping.

Other blogs I see are put up by someone who is obviously, shy, poor at writing, and by someone who  really doesn’t want to blog…but thinks they need to in order to be someone.

And I think that is sad, because so many people really could be good at blogging, if they did it for the right reason.

Do you feel like blogs are draining, too invasive, and barely worth the mental toil they take on you?

If you honestly hate blogging, if you think your blog could use improvement, or even if you’ve just begun blogging, then you owe it to yourself to check out my tutorial

“Blogging made better.”

This is not some lame “feel good” ebook, but a really robust guide to making a blog you can feel good about…and be proud of.

The days of boring, anemic blogging are over! Grab it now, while you can.

But does it feel right? | Manipulation in Marketing

hmmmReader, how many times have you looked at some marketing strategy that seemed to be making everyone else rich, but it made you uncomfortable?

Maybe it was the way that their ad had these huge red screaming letters shouting at you, or dollar bills blowing on the screen; and it just seemed… forced; cheesy; shady…

Did it feel right? because if it didn’t, that was your gut telling you, “beware”.

When you search around the net looking for a way to succeed online, you are going to find a bunch of people telling you that they did this, this and this and they were rich.

They are lying. Believe me.
Because, now think about it…if all they had to do was, that that and that, do you really think that they would be selling the “how to” of it for such a low price?

Internet Marketing is a vast field of knowledge and you aren’t going to learn it all overnight.

How to really make money online

Be the life of the party

How to be the life of the party.

Do you struggle with anxiety? Does it always seem like others are looking at you? Or are you just afraid that they may….notice you?

Social anxiety comes in all stages and in many forms from slight paranoia to full blown psychosis. The truth is we have all had moments of severe self doubt, even to a debilitating degree. Nowhere is this more evident than in the arena of public speaking. People were asked in a poll what there biggest fear was. And it wasn’t death…(that was in second place). It was (you guessed it). Public speaking. Seriously. Apparently, there are people who would rather die than speak in public. This tells me two things. Even normal, healthy people can be consumed with debilitating fear when it comes to intense social encounters and secondly, most people do NOT have practice in speaking in public. And I don’t think this just applies to holding a microphone. Because the truth is, while many social people are sort of nervous when speaking in public, they aren’t SO nervous that they would rather die than speak publicly.

I have a compelling theory…could it be that we have a nation of socially awkward technoids who are more comfortable texting than talking? I’m not sure what else could explain the huge numbers of people who would rather die than speak to an audience.

Now, when I was in school, public speaking was mandatory. I mean, you just couldn’t escape elementary school without reading an oral report at least five separate times before middle school. And in Jr. High, everyone took speech class because the other class options were too academic, and speech wasn’t as hard as, say, Civics class, etc. Now, however, it appears that schools do not stress this as much. Society certainly doesn’t. When a significant number of teens report that they are more comfortable texting their friends than sharing actual face time (not Facebook, but face to face time) then we know we have a generation of kids that are going to grow up socially stunted.

I would like to offer some suggestions to overcoming social awkwardness RIGHT NOW.

Pretend you’re a celebrity. Truly. When people are watching you, or at least you are sure they are, bask in it. Smile broadly, flip your hair, snap your finger and extend two thumbs up toward them. Go over the top and buy into the fact that, Babe, you got it going on…you are a celebrity! This one sure tip is a life saver because it doesn’t talk you out of what you are sure of (they are all STARING at me!!) and teaches you how to lean into the lie rather than fight it (yea Babe, it really is true…you just aren’t that important to the masses).

If you are twitching and squirming inside when you go out in public, try dressing…and acting…like a celebrity. And then tell me how it worked for you.

Why it makes sense to sell a product you actually like+

Selling what you love:Reason number one: You are going to be exposed to it every day. If you are shipping out sparkplugs everyday, and you have no interest in them, you’ll get bored. But if you are selling something you make and love, you will enjoy it more.

Reason number two: If you have no passion for your product, you will lose interest in promoting it. Think about it; how are you going to sound jazzed about a product you are promoting if you have no interest in it?

Reason number three: if your product promotion involves writing e-zines, reviews, or posting articles every day, you are going to run out of things to say unless you know about your product and/or research your product. If you aren’t in love with your product or well acquainted with it, you writing juices will run dry. And people will feel it.

It’s not all about the money. And even if it were, you won’t make much if the passion isn’t there.  Before you jump on the “what product will make me the most money”  caravan, find the  best product for you personally.
