Are You Running A Business Or Just A ‘Promotion’?

  • cash-chess

I read a sort of sad story the other day… This person in a group posted how they ran their first Facebook Ad… The ad was for a physical product… They got no sales… (I don’t know how long the ad ran, I’m assuming NOT VERY LONG, maybe a day, or a week tops)… Person is crushed… as we ALL would be, right? But then… then… here’s the kicker (sad part)… person says they need to get some cash rolling in… wait for it… SO THAT… they can re-design the packaging, get a cooler looking website, and better branding, etc. […]

    Content Marketing Tips To Attract More Clients

We get a lot of questions about content marketing… How do I write content for my email marketing? What particular thing should be in my content to increase engagement? What kind of content marketing makes money? Is there a difference? Or is all content equal? A lot of gurus out there reach the “just give” approach, and that advice is so generic and wide-sweeping that makes it hard to put into practice. “Just Be Giving” is not exactly an actionable tip to content marketing. What does “just give” look like? The truth is that most gurus give that fluffy advice […]

    All Marketing Is ‘Theory’ Until Tested

Most Sunday afternoons I like to chill out and spend some time reading business books. Gots to keep the wheels a turnin’ and the iron sharpened, right? I almost always walk away with nuggets of wisdom that I immediately implement in my biz. Well a few Sundays ago I was in the middle of my page when it hit me… It was like wisdom from the heavens. I hopped up. Ran to my computer and started whittling away at my keyboard. (Picture rabid squirrel meets acorn after 40 day fast… yeah it was intense) Now before I get into all […]

Why following what the ‘big dogs’ are doing is costing you big time

  • DSC_0333

Every weekend Robin and I go out and have us a little ‘family flyin’ time’… I’m an avid RC airplane and helicopter enthusiast (well, I guess you could say full on fanatic) and we kind of make it a ‘family weekend’ thang. A few weekends ago we were out at the park flying when an incredibly valuable business lesson came out (I’ll dig into that in just a second)… …And it really got us talking about entrepreneurship and online business as a whole. You see almost every single client we work with 1-on-1 has the same issue when we start […]

Here’s a cool story about how Robin and I built a fan page with over 10,000 raving fans in less than 15 days… One evening Robin and I are just chilling out on the couch watching our normal evening of shows and chit-chatting… Usually this chit-chatter leads into something about marketing (we can’t help it, we breathe this stuff)… Either a commercial pops on that is genius or we hear something that strikes a chord and… …BAM! We’re off to the races. Well on this particular evening something stuck out to the both of us, at the very same time. […]

    The ‘Guru’ With An English Lit. Degree

Ever met someone with an English literature degree? If you did it probably wasn’t very memorable 🙂 Or worse… someone with a ‘Medieval English Literature’ degree? Who even knew that was something you went to college for, right? I mean 1000’s of dollars of year in education to major in… …Harry Potter? 🙂 Or become an expert in Beowulf? Funny thing is Robin has 2 cousins both studying abroad and majoring in each of the above. And it got us talking about this in light of the coaching industry. You see the 2 degrees above are really only good for […]
