Social Media Marketing

Do you want to increase your brand awareness and attract ideal clients as well as skyrocket website traffic? Yes, we all do!  Have a look at the 7 basic social media marketing process that will help you to grow your business effectively.

Marketing Strategy 2016

Intention

Determine your intention. Your business goals will drive everything you do on the social network. A Clear social media intention allows you to save a ton of time while getting better results. You need to know the results you want.

Niche

Get ultra-clear on your niche or you will be wasting your time on social media. Knowing your specific niche – and then knowing the demographics of the different social media sites – allows you to be working effectively in front of those people whom you want to target.

Show your passion

In order to spread your message make sure your passion comes through in everything you do on social media. You are passionate about what you do. That passion must come through in all your posts and responses if you want to be connecting with people who can’t wait to buy your product and services.

What to post?

You are using social media to attract your loyal consumer, make a loyal and targeted community, increase your expert status and become an authority or subject matter expert (SME). So you want to post accordingly. However – that does not mean you promote yourself, talk about your business, and post about your main area of expertise all day every day. Share and Be Social!

Use this formula for your guideline: 50 percent post of your main area of expertise, 20% posts of supportive areas of your expertise (related topics that support brilliance). 30% posts of character development (let your audience get to know you).

Leverage

If you think you can’t be on all the social media networks because you don’t have much time, you are assuming that it takes twice as long to have a presence on two sites as it does to be on one. It doesn’t. Integrate all of the major social media platforms. Integrate your networks with your blog (see below). Integrate all of that with your company website. Outsource and automate what you can. Spend less time getting more done.

Engagement

Social media marketing is not about posting valuable info and news. Social people will only work and connect with person whom they like, know, and trust – and they get to involve you and your business through conversations, interactions, and meaningful engagement.

Consistency is vital

One of the biggest mistakes that most business owners make when using social media is being inconsistent. You don’t have to spend hours on social media. It is far more effective to spend 15 minutes every day – regularly. Consistently.

30-Day Journey To Personal Development

Successful people understand the value of personal development in their professional lives. They know that no one is really able to get ahead in the game of life if they won’t spend time, money and effort on personal development. Indeed, personal development is an investment that you should prioritize. With this, I am encouraging you to take a 30-day journey toward personal development. You can start from as simple as allotting 30 minutes of your time daily to read insightful books about personal development, business practices, business trends, exercising and any others that you think will impact your life big time! You can then move further to attending seminars, training, going to the gym, enrolling in school or events that will develop your leadership skills and hone your knowledge so you can always perform your best.

Here’s the 30-day growth challenge:

Week 1
Week one is all about developing important habits and establishing things that will serve as the framework for getting the most out of each day over the next month.

Day 1: Leave last month behind (and commit to no expectations).
Day 2: Set goals for the month (or reevaluate them if you already have).
Day 3: Break those down into weekly goals and use a daily or weekly accountability system to track your progress.
Day 4: List important assets you need to accomplish those goals. Chances are, you don’t have everything you need to accomplish your goals. Make a list and figure how you’ll acquire the assets you need to do that (such as skills, new contacts, resources, ect.).
Day 5: Make a vision board. Even try building one on Instagram or Pinterest. I know Guys, I know. – but trust, It Works!
Day 6: Start a journal.
Day 7: Relax and Reflect (Free Day).

Takeaway: Keep a journal and build vision board – thoughts matter.

Week 2
Week two is about the outward. It’s about optimizing your environment to maximize your focus and productivity.

Day 8: Wake up thirty minutes earlier. Even if you don’t do anything with it, rising early makes you feel great and puts you in the right state of mind for the day ahead.
Day 9: Design a morning routine. Take it one step further and design a morning routine that jumpstarts your day.
Day 10: Adopt a nightly ritual. Like the morning routine, but this is all about optimizing your sleep and well-being by placing you in the right physical and mental state of being before retiring for the day.
Day 11: Minimize or get rid of T.V. Try to reduce your T.V. consumption down to just a few hours a week. 2 to 2.5 hours a day would be good.
Day 12: Do a smartphone/app cleaning. Chances are, you have a ton of apps (social media) you really don’t need or which distract you regularly but bring you little value.
Day 13: Cleanse your social media networks/apps. Social is one of the biggest time sinks and a constant source of distractions. Reduce the number of sites you’re on, who you follow, and weed out the bad associations.
Day 14: Relax and Reflect (Free Day).

Takeaway: Let Go and Focus Forward.

Week 3
Week three is about the inner game of optimizing your performance to increase your creativity, performance, focus, and reduce stress.

Day 15: Meditate for five minutes. Preferably, make this a daily habit.
Day 16: Try a brain game. These are great for optimizing your cognitive functions.
Day 17: Adopt a mindfulness practice.
Day 18: Start exercising. It’s important you find a method that works for you so you’ll be excited to exercise and work out.
Day 19: Start using the Pomodoro  method while you work.
Day 20: Create the habit of doing problem tasks first. There needs to be a sense of order and logic to how you work. This is the second step to optimizing that and it influences both your productivity and creativity.
Day 21: Relax and Reflect (Free Day).

Takeaway: Get a good night’s sleep with a pre-bedtime body-scan meditation.

Week 4
Week four is about growing your knowledge, skills, and other assets. Listing important assets you need to acquire to accomplish your goals for the month and year. Think about the kinds of things you need to learn, develop, and want to acquire.

Day 22: Start reading. Depending on your profession or interest, this can be anything that brings you value.
Day 23: Start listening to podcasts or audio books (even videos). Unlike books, which require your undivided attention, podcasts are great because you can take them on the go. Highly recommended!
Day 24: Search for a mastermind or group of like individuals (Online and Offline). If you don’t already have a group of people you communicate with regularly that are in your profession or are at a similar professional level, start searching for a group or community.
Day 25: Do one thing you’re afraid of. The ability to consistently step outside of your comfort zone is a skill that can and should be developed now as it will serve you in everything you do.
Day 27: Reach out to one person that can move your life, over all (Soul, Mind and Body), forward.
Day 28: Perform an act of kindness/ Prepare yourself to give (giveback). Most of us have lost touch with (or never knew) the power of helping others without expecting anything in return. This knowledge, and the understanding that you always have the ability to exercise it, doesn’t just make you happier and more fulfilled, it can serve your life (over all) in a big way. Such acts of kindness are the perfect way to start off a long and beautiful relationships and personal connections.
Day 29: Relax and Reflect (Free Day).

Day 30: Get a Buddy and help build up another and share your experiences.

Get Started With Mobile Search Engine Marketing

Mobile marketing is exploding! Growing by leaps and bounds and companies are looking for new ways to take advantage of this opportunity. Maybe you’ve recently made ​​a mobile website, informed your customers about it. Is that enough? Short answer.. No!

The advent of smart phones has been a positive incentive for Internet and digital marketing (Mobile Marketing).  Internet on smart phones has caused a rapid increase of mobile marketing. When we talk about online marketing, we can not make a single step without being tied to Search Engine Marketing (SEM). Same could be said for mobile search.

Mobile Search 80 Percent

Analytics shows that 78% of mobile searches for local businesses result in a purchase and 79 percent of those convert within an hour; 70 percent of desktop searches take at least a month for a transaction to complete.

Here are the 3 most overall important factors about taking your business mobile:

Traditional site design versus mobile site design.

While it is true that people can access and view your traditional website using their mobile devices, it is also true that users will have an extremely difficult time reading your site’s content, and an even tougher time navigating through your site. (If you want to know what your traditional site looks like on a mobile device, simply zoom out – a lot – on your desktop computer screen. Not pretty, huh?) Whereas traditional site design is aimed at creating a comprehensive and visually pleasing experience for site visitors, mobile site design centers primarily on ease of navigation. Mobile web users don’t like scrolling, typing in text, or waiting for pages to load; therefore, mobile websites keep content and graphics to a minimum, and instead focus on providing exactly what is needed in a way that is super-simple to view and access.

The mobile audience.

Many mobile web users use only their mobile devices to access the Internet, foregoing computer use altogether. That means they expect certain things. They use the web to search for businesses and get quick information, and do very little web browsing “just for the fun of it.” They want quality, not quantity, and they don’t want to have to work to use a website.

Mobile SEO.

SEO is just as important in the mobile web as it is in the traditional web. However, it is also much different. Mobile search engines behave differently, and the unique composition of mobile websites means they must be optimized in ways that are unique to the mobile world. Taking the wrong steps, or skipping certain steps, when using SEO for your mobile website can make it virtually invisible in the mobile web.

As you can see, there are a number of very good reasons to build a mobile website and get started using Mobile Marketing for your business today!

Pro Tip: Writing Compelling Ads for Mobile Paid Search Campaign

Focus on your Product – Mobile search promotion is about selling your product – not your company. Many inexperienced marketers are always making the same mistake by promoting company instead of their product.

Provide important information about your product – Potential customers reading your advertisement, must find out why your product is better than competing product. Do not provide generic descriptions because they will not bring sales.

Compelling Click -to-Call Action Message – People love special offers, and it would be a smart move to include phrases like this: “Call Now and receive 1 additional year warranty”. This is just an example. Every product is unique in its own way.

Keywords Must be Present in the Title – You should not write ad without a specific search keywords. If you are selling “your product” (be specific), then “your product” keyword should present in Ad title and description at least once.

Facebook Marketing and Lead Generation

Facebook Marketing

Facebook (http://facebook.com) is considered to be the most popular and fast growing social media website in the world today. With an overwhelming number (2 billion active users, June 2017) users, Facebook has become the most visited website after Google and has become the social media site for people to share their photos, videos and other content on the internet. This amazing popularity of Facebook has made it one of the most sought after mediums for marketing by many businesses and entrepreneurs. Using the unbelievable reach of Facebook, companies can easily showcase their products and brands for their targeted audience and can create a number of leads for their business. Let’s look at some of the “Best Practices for Facebook Marketing and Lead Generation”.

The following is a list of the best practices that one must try to implement in order for Facebook marketing to be effective:

Building a Facebook Page

The first and most basic step towards Facebook Marketing is to build a page for your business on Facebook. Add information about your business and the products or services that you offer on your page for the people to see.

If you have a physical outlet of your business then adding it to your Facebook page through the Places option is a good way of sharing stuff about your business. These will build a solid foundation for your marketing campaigns in future.

Engaging with the People

The next step after having created a Facebook page is to start engaging with the potential customers of your products. You can do this more effectively by sharing even the smallest details or information about your business on your page.

The more regularly you update your page by sharing content, pictures or even videos, the more people you are going to attract towards your page and your following will began to increase. It is best to be continuously engaging with your fans to make your Facebook marketing campaign a success.

Amplify Your Reach

Once you have a reliable and loyal fan base on your page, your next step should be to start building and amplifying your reach. The most simple way to do this is to keep sharing informational content with your fans and prompt them to share it with their network.

The more times any content on your page is shared or interacted with by your fans, the more times it appears on their news feed and is likely to be seen by other people of his social network. This will create the word of mouth effect and your reach is going to amplify without you having to do anything.

Develop Your Product through Facebook

When you have garnered enough fan following, your next step in Facebook marketing should be to use Facebook as a means to develop and make changes in to it according to the feedback and engagement of your customers. Come up with competitions and events that are targeted towards gaining feedback from the customers about your products or services and gauge what your fans want.

You can make use of the questions and polls options provided by Facebook to get to know what your fans want to see in your products/services offerings. This feedback from your fans/audience can help you in making your product/services more appealing to the customers and will make your Facebook marketing more productive and effective.

Increase Your Sales

The next step in using Facebook to your advantage is to increase your sales by asking the customers to share their experiences about using your product/services. The more the customers share about their buying experiences the more it will serve as a word of mouth and will encourage the other potential customers to buy the product/services.

Facebook marketing can prove to be great for increasing the traffic coming to your website as well. You just have to consistently share informational content about your brand or product/services on your page. Use the concepts of online content marketing along with your online marketing scheme on Facebook to get the desired results more quickly.  You can also use Facebook video marketing (Facebook Live) to boost your incoming traffic to your website as well and increase your sales this way too.

Building Loyalty and Deepening Relationships

Another golden principle of Facebook marketing is to stay connected to your fans and followers. Keep on providing them some or the other incentive so that they remain loyal to your page.

You can do this by offering free stuff as well as discounts and sales on products/services  for the Facebook fans that share your posts or comment on them the most times. Such incentives are sure to deepen the relationship between you and your fans and can help you in reaping the rewards of your Facebook marketing strategy.

Effects of Facebook Marketing on Lead Generation

The generation of leads is a very important aspect of Facebook marketing. You can get a number of leads to your website and your business through marketing your product/services on Facebook. The reason for this is simple, everything you share on your page gets shared gets displayed on your fan’s news feed every time they interact with it in any way and created virality. Facebook marketing can end up providing you more organic leads than you could get by utilizing any other internet marketing technique.

Though Facebook can be one of the most effective wways of marketing, using Facebook marketing as a tool in your overall marketing strategy is not enough. You have to take the right steps and follow some basic guidelines for getting the desired results from your Facebook marketing campaign. It is not wrong to say that Facebook marketing plays a great role in the generation of organic and authentic leads for a business. However, if used correctly, the practices for Facebook marketing can help a business in generating a loyal fan base and in increasing their sales in the process.

Success Through Mentorship

 

The most successful men and women in life have a mentor.  So, “what is a mentor?”, you may wonder or ask. A mentor is an individual who trains, helps and sets examples for others. Your personal mentor may or may not be the mentor of other people. Mentoring refers to the process of helping other people realize their dreams and succeed in life. It gives you an extraordinary opportunity of facilitating the ideal professional growth through the sharing of knowledge that has been learned over the years through formal teaching and/or life experience.

Mentoring will allow you to add more strength to what you have learned through coaching and skills of leadership, through working with those individuals from various and different backgrounds who have different and varying types of personalities. The mentor intuitively knows the process and methods of helping, listening and encouraging through “real world experience”. Oddly enough, mentors come into your life in various sizes and shapes. In most cases, you may not realize that a person is in the process of mentoring you, until you achieve something worthwhile based on a word of advice or caution from
somebody.

At this point you now know what a mentor is, but do you know the impact on your personal life and your business if you have a business mentor? Finding a mentor is indeed one of the untold secrets of business success. If, for example, you want to engage in an entrepreneurial venture, you should select a mentor that has been successful in that area and let them show you how to do it best.

You will achieve success faster and realize all your dreams faster, if you find a great mentor. The mentor will help you overcome challenges and escape those business hurdles that are very common in the everyday life of most entrepreneurs. The mentor will guide you in such a way that you will not make the mistakes or fall into the traps which people face.

If you are doing business over the Internet, most mentors will teach and train you to focus on attraction marketing and building your brand. With a mentor, people will be chasing and following to learn from you, not you chasing other people in order to learn from them; as you will have qualities that are admired and liked by most people.

A mentor is also very important in saving you a lot of money while you are building your business. From the testimonies of most people, you can incur a lot of costs when you are at the early stages of establishing your business. You will incur a lot of these costs because you are the one who needs to figure out how to solve the problems of business and the challenges of the same. You can choose one or several mentors to help drive your business to success and prosperity. You should choose mentors who have a proven track record of accomplishment in business.

In closing, find a mentor that will help you succeed in business and in life. There are various challenges in life and in business and these challenges need the advice and assistance of different mentors to overcome and solve them.  There Is Success Through Mentorship!

Blogging – Main Tools for Attraction Marketing

benefits-of-wordpress-blogging

Four years ago I read an article, “Why Blogging is One of the Main Tools for Attraction Marketing”. It stated [unequivocally] that blogging is one of the major pillars of internet marketing. I can’t argue. Blogging has done wonders for me in terms of branding, business and influence, just to name a few.  And like my mentor, I strongly believe that a blog increases your chances of making money online through attraction marketing.

Once you set up your blog, you will realize that the power and influence of blogging goes beyond content marketing. Here are 7 reasons why you should start blogging:

Blogging Gives You an Audience

As you embark to establish your presence online, you should realize that you need an audience that you will engage and turn into customers. Of course, you want to blog to your audience with a purpose. For this reason, blogging emerges as the easiest way of establishing an audience via attraction marketing.  Blogging is the perfect channel for creating and making your presence known and felt online.

Without a blog, you will find it difficult to reach out to prospects and engage them. If you don’t blog (similar to not having website) no one will know that you even exist. It may also take your prospects a long time to discover you when you don’t have a blog. So, start a blog and you will simplify the process of establishing and engaging with your audience online.

Blogging Connects You with People 

Attraction marketing thrives on the connections that you establish with customers and potential prospects. Unfortunately, many people think that they can connect with prospects without blogging. Let me settle this once and for all. Without a blog, you cannot attract prospects or build a mutually beneficial relationship with them. You need to connect with prospects and educate and in the process, you will turn them into customers.

Also, when you blog regularly, then you stand a better chance of attracting more people to your business. There are hundreds of thousands of people surfing the web looking for leads or useful information and products. All these people need solutions, they need inspiration, and they need to connect with people that will transform their lives.

 website-vs-blog

Blogging Reveals Your Personality

If you read some of my earlier articles on attraction marketing, then you will realize blogging is an integral aspect of online marketing. Blogging brings out your personality, and reveals your true self. This is very critical in attraction marketing as it can make or break your marketing campaign.

The reason is that people connect with people who have an inviting and admirable personality. Your style or writing, your tone, and your voice have the potential to draw people to you or drive them away. When done properly, blogging increases online lead generation and portrays you in good light among your peers, potential audiences and prospects.

Blogging Makes You a Niche Leader

If you don’t blog, you will remain oblivious and even insignificant to the thousands of prospects and customers in your niche market. You can only become a niche leader when you use blogging to build your profile and establish yourself as a respectable figure in your niche.

Once you become a niche leader, you will gain more influence through your words, opinions, and perspective. Customers and B2B marketers will not only admire and love you, but they will yearn to connect with you so that they can benefit from your knowledge and insight.

Blogging Builds Awareness about Your Brand

Blogging is the easiest way of raising awareness about your business or brand. It can increase your reach and draw people outside your network to connect with you and even follow you. Remember, the information that you share through your blog does not only influence readers, but it also helps you promote your business and raise awareness about your brand through attraction marketing.

Through blogging, people will know and understand your brand much better and be more receptive to your marketing and brand messages. Also, they will be eager to introduce others so that they too can experience the power and influence of your brand online. With such benefits, you have no excuse for not embracing attraction marketing via blogging.

Blogging Allows You to Share Your Expertise

One of the key functions of a blog is to share your personal or professional experience or thoughts with your audience. Indeed, your blog acts as a window through which your audiences see your thoughts and perspective on industry-related issues. Most importantly, blogging also serves as a channel through which you can share your expertise with your audience or prospects.

When you blog and share your expertise, you give your audience reason to follow and subscribe to your blog. The good thing about blogging is that it can serve any industry pretty well. It doesn’t matter whether you are in the retail sector, education, personal training, or health and fitness, or finance, blogging bring out the best in you for the benefit of your audience and prospects.

Blogging Gives People Reason to Join Your Social Networks

Finally, blogging draws people to join your social network. Generally, people will not be interested enough to engage with you unless you have some influence online or a likeable personality. It’s your blogging finesse, your mindset, your approach to industry issues, and your professional demeanor that will drive people to engage with you in Twitter or Facebook.

As people notice you online, they will share links to your blog or articles and create buzz about what you do and say. This will elevate your status and the power of your content marketing campaigns. Ultimately, you will find yourself spending much less on online marketing as your networking marketing circle grows to match your influence.

No matter how you want to look at it, I can confidently say it pays off to use blogging as a tool for attraction marketing. Blogging has the potential to endear you to an audience and increase your influence and authority online. It not only reveals your personality, but it also increases awareness about your brand or business.
