You don't need more inspiration

Slow isn’t sexy, but it works

Do you believe there’s a difference between consuming information and learning?  (I’ll tell you what I believe later) I signed up for a webinar the other day at 11:30 am. Within 8 hours I had received *13* emails. 7 of them were countdown reminders that were sent within 30 minutes of each other.   In my head I thought – how useful is this information going to be if they have to beat me over the head to show up? Knowing that most network marketers don’t work the “value first, sale later” theory, this is going to be a huge sales push. I made a decision somewhere around email #8. I never showed up to the webinar. Instead, I poked around on Instagram. As much as I love this guy, I can only take him in small spurts.  (You’ll understand soon) Anyway, he has this 60 Second Club thing happening that …

ORGANIZATIONAL SYSTEMS There’s 5 places and ways that I keep the content I need at my fingertips, each one has it’s own purpose. i) When it comes to something I’ll refer to fairly often (like email templates, design guides, etc) I log it all in Evernote. I don’t need to reference this every …

chatbots for lead generation in home based businesses

Using ChatBots as Sales and Lead generators

First of all, let me tell you that chatbots have claimed my heart. Imagine you start promoting your business on Facebook and you have all these comments and messages coming in.  But you don’t have the time to answer them.  Seems like you need a secretary sitting on Facebook.  Sounds pretty dreamy, right?  That’s kind of what chatbots do, and it can dramatically increase your business. It only makes sense because once you’ve spent your time, energy and money to get those people ONTO your page, you probably want to accomplish something with them.  No one likes to send a message and wait 2, 3, 4 days to hear back, and you probably don’t want to lose those hot leads. I’ll be using chatbots in my own business.  To start out, they’ll help me segment my audience to figure out who I should be selling to, who I should have on …

Website Spring Cleaning Challenge

We cull our closets. We paint the walls. We get rid of the old to make way for the new. But what are you doing for your website? If you’re like most people, probably not much. It’s the set it and forget it mentality. I’m challenging you to spend some time next month to go through the #sitespringcleanchallenge. Here’s the 10 things I do at least once a year. Ideally, you’ll do all 10. If that seems insane, pick 5. 1.  BROKEN LINKS.  You can use something like Broken Link Check to see which links are broken on your site.  Take the time to go through each one.  I’ve found links to products I no longer sell, links to defunct websites, and once a typo in a link I had used in a blog post . 2.  CREATE MORE LINKS.  When people are on your site, you want to bounce them around …

What They Don’t Tell You About Personal Branding

Personal Branding seems to be the new buzz word in internet marketing. With good reason – do it right; do it well and that shit works. So called gurus talk about the reasons it’s so important and how to claim your piece of the promise land. But what about the things they don’t talk about? I have friends that would run screaming if I ever told them they had to put their mug front and center of their business and website.  I’ve watched people get it wrong from day 1.  I work with network marketers who struggle to understand “personal” in the realm of what they’re programmed to do in MLM.  I’ve also seen businesses go soft on their clients because they don’t want to lose the income by telling them to scrap it and start again. You can google how to build a personal brand, but most of what …
