Social Selling Requires Social Engagement

 Without Social Engagement You re Just Spamming We all are busy and have only so much time to blog, market and have a life. I get it. I am there too. All too often, however, we just write a blog post and throw it against the proverbial social wall and hope that it sticks. Not a great social media strategy. Social selling doesn t work that way. Why? It is because people do not work that way. Social selling is about building relationships,  that lead to trust, that lead to credibility. After which,  garnering support, leads to sales. So how do we create engagement. Engagement is Much Like You Make Friends In Real Life Remember when you had a life? Seems so far away right now, but I do still remember. Typically, you meet people at a social event, strike up a conversation. You realize you have common ground, exchange contact information and then one invites the other to another social event surrounding the found common ground.  In social media it is similar. You will typically meet on

Are You In A Business? Hard Questions You Need to Ask

Are You in a Business or a Hobby? The first thing in determining whether or not you are in a business is to determine your motivation. Some people, when they start a business do not have a clear motive in mind. Your first motive should be to make money.  If that is not your main motivation, then your motive is wrong. Don t get me wrong, there are a lot of ingredients to a successful business, but your main motivation must be to make money. Otherwise, it is a hobby or a charity. Neither of which is a bad thing. Most people, however, need a money making business to support themselves. Have You Determined Your Commitment Level? To have a successful business means you have to be committed to that business in some form or fashion. The higher your commitment, the more successful you will be. Some people, have no idea what they are getting themselves into, when they open a business. I don t believe in a turn key business. It is a marketing phrase more than a reality. Granted, there are est

Make Money Online For Free, Huh?

There Is No Such Thing As Free First off let s just say that there is no such thing as free.There is a cost to everything. I have read so many articles on the web advocating that you should not have to pay to earn money online. What a crock of poop! They clearly have no business acumen whatsoever. Every business has a cost associated with it. It may be the huge cost of rent, mortgage, payroll or a myriad of other costs that are associated with  running a business. If you are in business for yourself, then you are spending money in one form or another. Internet Marketers, Social Media Marketers and Webmasters are blessed that we are not supporting the same overhead as a brick and mortar business, but we still have costs. Look For Value I am associated with an affiliate program where I pay a monthly fee. I am happy to do it. The reason, I receive value from their service.  It is what the entire American Free Enterprise System is all about. I create a good or service that holds value f

Google Plus Help, How G+ Communities Can Drive Traffic

Google Plus Help, Not Everyone Wants to Look At Pictures People use social media for many different reasons. Google+ being no exception. The one thing, however, that is different about G+ is the ease of finding like minded people to bond with and learn from. G+ has a ton of different communities that you can become involved with. I personally am a member of about 50 different communities. I like to go to the different communities to learn different perspectives on the topics in which I have an interest. Your blog creates content. Content is what a lot of people want in theses different communities. When you share your blog to your social media channels don t forget to share your content directly to your G+ communities. If you post your blog to the G+ general public, it may never be seen by the communities that have a real interest in your content. So first share it to the public and then reshare it to your G+ communities. Google Plus Help, Sharing to G+ Communities Expands Your Reach

Start Successful Blog by Practicing the Three V’s

Want to Start Successful Blog? Sure you do. Everyone wants to be successful in their chosen field but not everyone will. There are lots of things stacked against you. Lack of experience, lack of knowledge, lack of skill. All that will come, however, if you are practicing the three V s. Yeah, it is not rocket science. If you are not doing these three things, however, then you may as well pack it in. You will not be successful. The Number One V Stands for Value Duh? Right! Wrong. People get this wrong more often than not. One of the first things bloggers get wrong when they first start off is to make their blog one big commercial for whatever affiliate program they are hot about. In their excitement to make their first million as a blogger they forget that the internet is driven by content. Telling people why they should join your particular affiliate program over and over again in a thousand different ways does not constitute content or at least not valuable content. Your blog must be
