Alex Hinojosa of EMSI Public Relations gives his rundown on the advantages and disadvantages of the 4 most popular platforms:

1. Facebook: This works best if you’re an individual interacting on a personal level, as opposed to a business. Artists, authors, public speakers and certain other professionals may benefit from having potential customers get to know them on a more personal basis.

2. Twitter: Posts are limited to 140 characters—about the length of a headline—and can include a photo or link to a website. People use it primarily as a source of news, which makes it easy to interact with people you don’t know.

3. LinkedIn: The social network for professionals is a good place to find and meet people within and outside your industry. The background information on your profile page provides great fodder for finding common ground with strangers and building relationships.

4. Google+: The Google search engine favors anything posted on Google+, which is great for SEO. It also combines the best features of Facebook and Twitter, including photo sharing and categorizing content using hashtags (#).

Tips for making webinars work

Posted April 9th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Web Promotion

1. Do not exceed the advertised webinar length. People have schedules and want everything covered in the time you promised.

2. Allow time for Q&A. For a 60-minute webinar, the most popular length, the presentation should be 45 to 50 minutes with a 10 to 15 minute Q&A. If you run out of questions before the allotted time expires, don’t be afraid to finish early. Your audience will not think less of you.

3. Don’t start more than 2 to 3 minutes after the hour. Doing so abuses the time of those who are waiting.

4. Ensure that recordings of the webinar are available within 48 hours of the ‘live’ event. Notify all registrants, not just those who missed the webinar, that the recording is available on demand and include the link.

5. Start promoting the event earlier than a week prior to the date. While two third of registrants will register the week of the webinar, a third will register earlier.

IMSC Rapid Mailer

You’ve probably seen the messages screaming that “e-mail marketing is dead” and it’s simply not true. Not at all.

What is true though, is autoresponder services are getting more picky all the time about the e-mails that you can send to your own list.

If you use a 3rd-party service like Aweber, GetResponse, MailChimp, Constant Contact, iContact, etc, you are putting your biggest online, income generating asset are risk of failure.

Why is that true? Simple.

They can cancel you at anytime they want, for any reason they want, and you have to literally go through the Spanish Inquisition to get your list imported to another service, asking you questions like:

Where did you get your leads?
Do they have time-date-IP Stamps?
What is the exact URL?

Or, they can put you or sub-par server IPs which means you are destined for the spam or promotions tab, so your clicks drop by half.

You need to have full control over your list, and you can do that, get better open rates, more clicks with the exact same list that you have right now, even with zero tech skills.

It’s called IMSC Rapid Mailer.

IMSC Rapid Mailer Features:

* Zero Monthly Fees Saves You a Fortune in Autoresponder Costs
* Unrestrictive Importing and Mailing for Full Control of Your Campaigns
* Create Profitable Paid Mailing Lists Instantly (No one else does this!)
* New Marketing Friendly, Ultra-Simple Setup. Be Up and Running Fast!
* Full E-Mail Statistics & Click Tracking for Ultimate Campaign Tracking
* It works inside WordPress, so installation is point-and-click simple
* You can import your leads without double confirmation. (this means no FBI-style interrogation (what was this lead looking at on Nov 3rd, 2010?)
* Plus, a ton more

It works with “SMTP” services, so you don’t have to worry about the difficulty of setting up your own mail server, and getting it to inbox.

It’s all handled by the SMTP who provide you with quality setups on their side, so you can start inboxing right away, plus, you can send for free or use a paid “pay-per-send” option which for most is actually less expensive than most autoresponder services.

You’ll want to move fast as Sean has this at the lowest price ever for the next few days, so grab it while you can, get your e-mails delivered, and know your list is permanently secured.

How to stand out at networking events

Posted April 7th, 2014 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

If you belong to a group or organization for the networking, consider becoming an officer of the group.

For decades I have advised businesspeople that, if they are going to network in a group or organization, the worst way is to attend as an ordinary member. A much better strategy is to boost your visibility by volunteering to be an officer of the group or head a committee.

Marketing consultant Sandra Lee Schubert agrees. “If you belong to a group or organization, consider joining the leadership team,” she advises. Spearhead a committee, plan an event, donate your products, or volunteer your specialty services and time.

Be of service in the group, even if it means making the coffee or staffing the registration table. But be ready to step into a leadership position.

The more you get involved, the more impact you will make in the lives and business of others. The more you create stronger relationships, the more people get to know you and your business.

“Be the go to person for future business, by being the person your groups can count on. It also looks good on a resume,” Schubert advises.

We all use computers and mobile phones, so we’re all up to speed with technology, aren’t we? Surprisingly, a recent study indicated that most employees make better use of computers, mobiles and notepads when they use them at home for recreational purposes than they do at work. This is most certainly not promising news for the majority of workplaces which are clearly failing to tap into the potential offered by modern IT solutions.

Is your IT department operating efficiently?

Major organisations are in the fortunate position of having teams of experts on hand to deal with hardware and software throughout the company. Large departments tend to have a consistent turnover in staff meaning that new graduates and trainees are usually up to speed with the latest developments in Information Technology.

For SMEs the situation is not usually quite so straightforward. A small computing team does not necessarily possess the most current skillset which is so important in today’s fast-paced world. Technological developments are moving forward all the time and at such a pace that many computing skills are becoming increasingly redundant.

The message is clear: make sure that members of your computing team are constantly receiving training in order to keep their skills current. Outmoded hardware, software and skills will almost certainly hold your business back in the long run. Ask any company director who has experienced a server crash with the resulting loss of business, orders and customer goodwill and ask yourself, “Does my IT department have an emergency plan? Is all of my data backed up? Is my company’s technology working to optimum levels?”

Are you making full use of available technology?

The days of sitting at a desk working at a desktop computer are fading fast. Nowadays the emphasis is on cloud computing, business on the move and e-commerce. Most companies and businesses could benefit from giving their systems a complete overhaul and assessing whether they are really receiving value for money, not to mention economic credibility.

Arranging to have a digital assessment could be your first step towards a sleeker and more efficient future, particularly if your equipment includes outdated machines and clunky software. Nowadays more and more companies are benefiting from the advances in technology offered by mobile devices and cloud computing. Sophisticated options such as Sharepoint offer superb control over many aspects of your company from employee expenses to customer data.

Some companies find the experience of an IT overhaul so liberating that they go on to outsource their entire IT requirement. Not only does this trim the budget, often quite dramatically, but the results usually speak for themselves. It makes great business sense, as all computing functions are handed over to experts in their field who are all up-to-speed with cutting-edge technology and the necessary skills to adapt it to specific requirements.

In a world of instant access, every company needs to offer customers instant and easy access to the products, services and information they require in order to secure sales. A professional website, timely information and well-maintained systems are an absolute necessity for business success in the 21st century.

According to speaker Brian Tracy, the greatest obstacle to success in adult life is the fear of failure. He says, “Taken to its extreme, we become totally pre-occupied with not making a mistake and seeking security above all other considerations.”

He says more than 99% of adults experience fear of failure, and that the antidote to fear is the development of courage, character, and self-esteem. The opposite of fear is actually self-love and self-respect. “Acting with courage in a fearful situation is simply a technique that boosts our regard for ourselves to such a degree that our fears subside and lose their ability to affect our behavior and our decisions,” says Tracy.

AW Auto-MateIf you use Aweber to handle your opt-in list you will be aware that some tasks take longer, or are harder than they should be.

For example, if you want to create a new list based on the settings of an existing list, you have to manually copy the settings over.

Or what if you want to create more than one list at a time? Not possible from within Aweber.

Also, were you aware that if a subscriber clicks the ‘unsubscribe’ link in your e-mail, they remain on your list (and count towards your billable total) until you remove them?

It’s a good idea to remove your unsubs on a regular basis. However the usual way is to go through each list individually and remove them one list at a time. If you have lots of lists, it’s a nightmare!

But not any more.

David Taylor has just released AW Auto-Mate, a new Windows software designed to automate the most boring or time consuming tasks in Aweber. From within the software, you can:

- Backup your lists
- Find and delete unsubs in a fraction of the time it would take to do manually
- Find those who have not opened an e-mail from you from a date of your choosing and create a segment so you can target them with a separate e-mail campaign (requires open tracking to be enabled)
- Duplicate list settings from an existing list into a new one.
- Create up to 5 new lists at a time using the same basic information. This is great if you have multiple lists for a single product launch.
- Preload a follow-up campaign into new lists using the campaign sharing feature of Aweber.

Watch the demo video to get a better idea of what AW Auto-Mate can do.

Subscriber WE asks, “If you were a somewhat green freelancer, how would you approach the client mentality of ‘I can get this for $5 somewhere.’

“Would you try and convince them otherwise or simply look elsewhere? And if you tried to convince them otherwise, what argument would you use?”

This is an easy one.

I told WE that it is pointless to spend time trying to get the $5 client to pay you $500 or even $50 for two reasons.

First, at that price the client can choose from one of a zillion hungry low-level writers clamoring for their crappy assignment. I picture those hack writers as the pile of warm bodies climbing up the wall in the movie World War Z.

Second, negotiating is worthless. Yes, you can haggle and maybe get the $5 client to pay you $6. But no way will they pay $500 or even $50.

By the way, I have the same experience in book publishing. If a publisher offers me a $5,000 advance, my literary agent might be able to get them up to $7,000…but not to $50,000.

The trick to making more money is to avoid cheap, low-paying markets, clients, publishers, editors, and assignments—and to work for high-paying markets, clients, publishers, editors and projects.

To get $1,000 per assignment, target clients that pay $1,000. Do not go after $10 clients and try to convince them to pay more. It won’t work.

What about raising your rates with current clients? When you are at the $500 per project level and up, you can raise your rates if you are in high demand at your current rates.

The best time to raise your rates is when you have much more business at your current rates than you can handle.

For example, if you have more $500 assignments than you can handle, you can start turning away clients that will only pay $100 and experiment with quoting $650 to new leads.

BTW, whenever you raise your rates, charge these rates to all new clients starting with the first assignment.

But when you communicate your new rates to current clients, tell them that the old rates they were paying will be in effect for them for the rest of the year.

That gives them advance notice they appreciate, prepares them for the rate increase, and enhances your relationship because they perceive you are giving them a special deal.

Just this week, GR, the marketing director from a lending bank, called me and asked if I would write 500-word blog posts on mortgages, real estate, and related topics for them.

He told me he found my name on a web site for mortgage marketers in a post listing five top copywriters in the mortgage industry. One was me. The others were biggies.

Then GR dropped the bomb: he wanted to pay five cents a word for the blog articles. For a 500-word article, that’s a staggering $25 per article.

Keep in mind that this is 2014. When I started freelancing in the early 1980s, the going rate for articles was a dollar a word. That’s 20X more than what GR thinks he should pay now.

My first impulse was to tell GR that if he would give me mortgages for investment properties at an interest rate of 0.1%, I would gladly write an article for him for a nickel a word.

Instead I suggested he contact the other copywriters recommended on the mortgage site and then let me know how many jumped at his 5 cents a word offer.

Of course, that was the last I heard from him.

Traffic Jeet

For someone who’s struggling with getting even a 1,000 views on the channel every day, this sounds downright fantastic. Doesn’t it?

Well, this guy has cracked the secret to getting unbelievable number of views on his YouTube channel. Watch him show you the tools he uses to make it happen.

The tool set you’ll see is called Traffic Jeet Suite 2. This is downright the most amazing suite of YouTube marketing apps you will ever see in your life, and that’s no light claim.

Thanks to this tool, you can do laser targeting of high-yield keywords that you can systematically find and dominate. It’s not difficult to master. In fact YOU can do it so easily that you’ll be upset you didn’t discover this earlier.

The Traffic Jeet suite is really effective and this is why the developer of the suite has built some really amazing channels on YouTube. If the proof of the pudding is in the eating, as they say…Then this guy is a glutton!

It is selling hot and with every sale the price of the suite is set to rise. It’s going to be a lot more expensive in a little while.

I suggest you get on the ground floor, and make sure you get the best bargain on it.

Here’s to getting you a Niagara waterfall of unending traffic!

What’s the hottest video trend so far in 2014? FULL SCREEN Video Background landing pages.

Paypal, Wetransfer, and other big companies are framing their sales pages, checkout pages, and SQUEEZE pages with dramatic videos and still images. Why? Because it relaxes the website visitor, or conveys a message, or more importantly puts them in a BUYING mood.

BUT the software to create the effect has been very restrictive “for the rest of us” until now.

Mark Dulisse has packaged up the most visual module of his SalesPress Pro 2 WordPress theme, and has made it ultra-simple to not only create video backgrounds for virtually ANY foreground element, but is throwing in some of the most head-turning, jaw-dropping videos that work with the software right out of the box.

The price? Unbelievable and in fact, there’s a “Developer’s License” option for just a few dollars more that will let you stun (and charge) your clients when you make THEIR business pages look great.

This is an introductory price only, which will be moving up in just hours, be one of the few charter members to grab the most VISUAL WordPress Theme released to date, right here.

When the Winter Olympics were on, my wife watched it devotedly.

But she also did social media and e-mail on her laptop at the same time.

“You’re going to miss the performance,” I said while figure skating was on.

“I can multitask,” she said proudly.

A minute later a skater did a spectacular triple Lutz, but Amy missed it because she was looking at her computer screen and not at the TV screen.

This is yet another demonstration that multitasking is a bad idea and usually doesn’t work.

A few times I wrote something on the PC while simultaneously talking on the phone.

Invariably, my concentration on the phone call waned, and before I knew it, I missed what the person was saying, which was uncomfortable and potentially embarrassing.

People who multitask think they are getting more done, but a growing body of psychology research indicates this is not true.

In particular, a 2001 study conducted by Joshua Rubinstein, Jeffrey Evans, and David Meyer found that multitasking reduces productivity as much as 40%.

The only multitasking that really works is when you do two activities at the same time and both are not demanding—for instance, mowing the lawn while listening to an educational lecture on your iPod.

I don’t actually do that because I do not mow the lawn or own an iPod. But you get the idea.

I know a lot of subscribers will write to tell me that they are successful multitaskers. But unless you have measured your productivity and quality on a task (e.g. writing) with and without multitasking, I would argue that you don’t know whether it serves you well.

As a youngster fresh out of college, I drove from the plant at Westinghouse into Baltimore to take marketing classes at Johns Hopkins.

I multitasked way back then when, in bumper-to-bumper traffic, I foolishly opened my textbook on my lap and read while driving. Result: several narrowly avoided fender benders and minimal retention of read material.

I am much more of a fan of sequential tasking: doing one project, and then when you tire of it, switching to something else.

I saw the rudest form of multitasking recently when I attended a lecture: many people in the audience were pecking away at their smart phone screens as the speaker talked.

This is discourteous as well as disconcerting to the speaker if he sees it. If you don’t want to listen to the lecture, don’t attend. Otherwise, eyes on the stage and phone in your pocket.
