Cyber Monday

Happy Friday!!

mastermind-cyber-16What a week it has been!

I hope you had a wonderful thanksgiving.  We did something totally different this year and went out to eat in Chinatown in NYC.  It was great.  No turkey on the table, but lots and lots of wonderful Malaysian food.  Everyone left overstuffed.  AND –>> no dishes!! no cleanup!!  Perhaps a new family tradition.

The weekend was pretty great.  Low tech and fun.

And then came CYBER Monday…. I had a great CYBER offer and then technology failures happened and happened and happened. I crashed one site after another.  Well, not really crashed but totally not functioning properly.  So rebuilding.  In the midst were medical appointments and then a medical challenge with one of my kids — you know, you drop everything.  And you go.  All is well, but it added to the saga of challenges!!  Just as I was getting everything together yesterday — another urgent issue arises!  The DOG has fleas.  What??? Fleas in December?? So again, dropped everything and ran out to bath the dog in the cold…..I hope you are laughing because I had to.

So, now — it is all up and ready.

On a different site but it works.

cyber2016 is the special code to receive a big discount on the Business and Marketing Mastermind.  AND the best part is that it is a discount for the life of the program.  So you receive a discount today and next month….. for huge savings.

The Business and Marketing Mastermind — is AFFORDABLE.  It will provide you with a mastermind group.  The power of mastermind is the wisdom of the collective.  You will find that you get great ideas from other people and they will get great ideas from you.  AND — >> it also has a monthly marketing webinar — some topics are listbuilding (how do you really build an opt-in list).  We will be working.

Mastermind groups also often result in collaborations, joint ventures and networking — although that is not their primary focus, just a great side benefit.

The combination of training and masterminding makes it complete — but of course there is more!!

One of the most important things that you can do as a business leader is to put together your vision and strategy for the upcoming year and future years.  I use one of the most powerful systems for strategic planning that I have seen on the planet.  And as a member, you will have access to this planning system, but it also includes a full year of online monitoring of your plan, as well as monthly success lessons.

There’s more, I think but I will let you check it out for yourself.

Of course, if you have questions — let me know.

If you have any trouble with the website — let me know!!

It is good until the 12th of December at midnight.

A CYBER Monday DECEMBER!

Launching New Mastermind Groups

Masterminding is one of my favorite ways to work with people.  As a group member and as the facilitator.  Amazing things always happen!!  And that makes it fun.

We are just launching new Business and Marketing Mastermind groups.

mastermindSo, what is a mastermind group — well, when you look at definitions, they aren’t exactly what we mean by mastermind groups.  A mastermind group brings together great minds to work together on common goals, brainstorm, share ideas, give feedback, get feedback and focus on growth and success.

In the business and marketing mastermind its a combination of services — masterminding, and training –with monthly webinars, membership area with additional training resources, and options for individual coaching.

And as we rebuild Bizology.Biz — my business development program — members will have full access.  20 lessons filled with hands-on training, workbooks for work on marketing plans and strategies.

The power of masterminding is really the coming together of many great minds.  When you sit (even virtually) with a group of like minded business leaders — it will have a huge impact on you and the work that you are doing ON your business.  Things start happening.  You get energized.  You hear ideas of things that are and aren’t working and you take that information back to your business.  You get opportunities to talk about your challenges, goals and visions with the group.  That in itself is powerful. But as the months go on, you start finding a deeper and deeper connection to your vision and the vision of the others in the group.  You feel excited…and one of the most powerful things is that your commitment to your goals and the work that you are doing GROWS.  That commitment propels you forward.

You find that you are accomplishing more because you have told a group of people you are going to.  The group helps you to stay on track, focused and following through.

To learn the full details be sure to check out all that we’ve included in our Business and Marketing Mastermind.

Online Reviews Must Be Legal

Avoiding Illegal And Unethical Customer Review Methods For Your Small Business.

Just DON’T Do It!

There are many ways to game the online customer review system on your website and review sites. While all these methods are unethical, not all of them are illegal but if discovered they could very well spell doom to your business reputation and success. Here are three methods that you want to avoid using to collect customer reviews:

1. Financial incentives

star1.5 (4)

Many underhanded marketers advice small business owners to use financial incentives to encourage clients to submit positive online reviews for them. These incentives may not involve giving hard cash, but instead involve giving away coupons, gift cards, complementary vouchers, discount offers and so on. While the practice may appear harmless to a business owner, it is actually bribing people to give a favorable opinion about your business which will be used by third parties to make a financial decision in doing business with you.

This has been one of the worst practices in the internet marketing field and has made the Federal Trade Commission crack down heavily on marketers who use false information to promote their business. To stay out of trouble, use your financial incentives for other marketing purposes that will build trust and honesty with your customers and then encourage them to leave online reviews out of their own free will.

2. False personas

a5

Another underhand trick marketers use is to create false online identities to submit reviews. This is a difficult method for authorities to track since different IP addresses are used by each identity to submit the reviews. However in this day and age of technology and so much public interest in exposing unscrupulous businesses, it wouldn’t take long for someone investigating your reviewers to wonder why the IP addresses of the submitters are from India, Philippines and Malaysia yet your client base is in Little Rock, Arkansas!

3. Submitting reviews yourself

This is often a sincere mistake most small business owners make. They get customer reviews in their store on their feedback form, manually submit each of them to a review site profile and think it’s perfectly alright because they are from real customer. Unfortunately it’s not possible to do this with review sites since each of your customers should submit their own review.

star5 (7)

If you have collected reviews on feedback forms, emails, videos and other methods, you can post them on your website but only if you have that express signed permission from your clients to do so. Otherwise you need to point your clients to review sites to submit their own reviews.

You want good reviews for your business — for sure!  But not at the expense of your character and real world reputation!  It is just not worth it.

Learn some great strategies for getting positive reviews:

Lead Automation: Putting A FLOW Together

magneticAre You Using a Lead Automation System??

Every once in a while, I see a product that I decide to promote. I see thousands of products but most are not worth telling you about.

But when I saw this one, I had to have it and then I decided that it was a great fit for small businesses that are doing digital marketing for their business.

This software will give you the ability to create work flows for your leads.  You really need to WATCH the demo video below to get the idea.  It is different from your CRM and not your auto responder.  IT integrates with both of those systems.  You still need them….

What I was impressed with was that it integrates with everything!!

You can create a flow that takes a lead into an email autoresponder, connects with your text messaging software — then pushes a notice to you of action to follow up — then connects them with your webinar– you can tag that they are a lead from… facebook, twitter, linkedin….. and the possibilities are endless.  It organizes you and helps you to keep leads engaged and not falling through the cracks.

I have felt that way for years.  I have a great autoresponder, but there needs to be more.  And that’s where I fall flat.  I fail to keep people engaged.  I have resources I could be using to follow up and a new lead comes in and I jump over to that lead or group of leads and then …..you know what I mean.  It becomes overwhelming.

So take a look at the demo.  If it looks good.  Click on the banner above and pick it up.

If it looks too complicated — CALL ME.  I will be setting mine up and as soon as I do that — then I can help you get set up!!

AND check out the bonus package!  All worth it when you think of the time you will save, the money you will save and the potential income increase because you are not losing people.

Lead automation will change HOW you do business.  Because when you are able to automate important systems like a lead flow — you see your business growing, your time growing and your revenue increasing.
