Are You Publishing or Promoting?

Are you a publisher or a promoter?
I’m shifting to more of a publishing company.
Building a big fanbase and start publishing things more often.

What will I publish?
I need to be reading articles and finding things that are related to the niche that my audience is in.
Then I repurpose that content by sharing what I have learned from it or have begun to implement.
By doing this in a consistent way I will become an authority on that topic in the eyes of I audience.
Which causes them to know like and trust me for their information.
See your potential clients will be most likely to do business and buy from you because they know that you are the one that can solve their problem.
The key is to quit trying to sell your product.
If I send out 30 emails to you a day you would get upset.
But If I post on facebook 30 times a day with valuable content.
That keeps people wanting more.
The way to win in social media is to always be “top of mind.”
That means every time people look at their facebook you are there.
If you are only posting once a day then you are not “top of mind.”
This is how you win in this market!
If you are constantly in the face of your clients over and over again with exactly what they wan’t
It will make the difference from a business that was at first doing $300 dollars a month to $4000 a month.
And would scale and grow rapidly if you do it right.
This is what I’m doing.
Blogging and shooting video daily
Emailing my list
Sending them valuable offers that I know my clients are looking for.
Which generates sales.
Repeat.

15 Tested and Proven Ways to Build Your Subscriber List

15 Tested and Proven Ways to Build Your Subscriber List

A list of engaged subscribers is one of the most effective and reliable marketing resources. A good list so valuable that it can’t be bought. Why? Because when subscribers sign up for your list, they’re signing up to hear from you and your company. Subscribers have to be earned. What are the best ways to build a list? We’ve collected the top 15 to share with you today.

The permission model allows you to fill your audience with people who are genuinely interested in your brand and what you have to say

With information collected during sign-up (or later), you can precisely segment your list and design your email communication to suit your reader’s preferences.

As you attract qualified leads, you’ll be able to guide them through the decision-making process by aligning content to specific buying cycle stages.

Take a look at the 15 tips we’ve collected to help you build your email marketing list:

  1. Offer quality content. Nobody gives up their email address for free. If you want to build a valuable relationship and engage your audience, you need to provide content that is worthwhile and interesting.
  2. Put sign-up forms on every web page. Your sign-up form should be everywhere your potential subscribers are. Make sure it’s visible and easy to fill out.
  3. Use social media to collect email addresses. Integrate your sign-up forms with social media platforms. Driving traffic from multiple sources allows you to build a strong email marketing list much faster.
  4. Design your sign-up form carefully. Ask only for information you plan to use. A good rule of thumb is that less is more — the shorter the sign-up form, the higher the conversion rate.
  5. Show your privacy policy. Inform your readers that you will not share their personal information with third parties. A clear privacy policy helps you build trust and convince visitors that it’s safe to subscribe.
  6. Show samples of your content. Let your subscribers know what they are signing up for. Use your older content samples to “sell” the email sign-up.
  7. Include a call to action. Put a call to action in your submit button, e.g. Sign me up! This makes the sign-up process more engaging and improves the conversion ratio.
  8. Give away freebies. Think of a relevant incentive for your audience (e-book, infographic, whitepaper) and provide it for free.
  9. Ask subscribers to share. Take the time to prepare valuable, shareable content. Remember that putting the social share buttons is not enough; you still need to ask your subscribers to use them.
  10. Build a content distribution strategy. Producing great content is only half the battle. Make sure it’s visible to the right audience. Define who your ideal audience is and find out where they like to congregate online. Then choose communication channels accordingly.
  11. Publish landing pages. Create a squeeze page where visitors can download premium content in exchange for their email address. A dedicated web page helps users focus on the call to action and increases conversions.
  12. Include testimonials on your landing page. Social proof helps build trust toward a brand and its products. Use testimonials from satisfied customers to help visitors make a decision.
  13. Blog regularly. Great content brings more traffic. Develop a realistic content publishing schedule and stick to it.
  14. Guest post on popular blogs. Publishing your content on other blogs is a great way to build relationships with other bloggers in your industry and introduce yourself to new people. Include a backlink to your blog, and your blog’s search rankings will go up.
  15. Collect email addresses at offline events. Be ready to collect email addresses at trade shows and conferences. Ask for business cards or use the Forms on the Go app to instantly add people to your list.

It’s time to get started.

Now you know a handful of great ways to build one of the most effective marketing assets — your email marketing list.  Just go here to get started.

How To Develop Your Musicianship on the Keyboard

How To Develop Your Musicianship on the Keyboard.

One excellent way to create better music is to commit to developing your musicianship.

The piano is one of the best instruments to learn when you are trying to develop musically.

I have been playing the piano for about 30 years. When I first started playing it was just by ear. I would hear one of my favorite gospel r&b or hiphop tunes on the car radio and than I couldn’t wait to get home so that I could turn on my little casio keyboard and try to recreate the song that I had just heard. I could always pick out the melody and copy it because I had a pretty good ear but I could never play the whole song and thats what I really wanted to do. I wanted to play the full song and use the same full chords that they would use on my favorite songs.

One day I discovered something that changed the way I hear and played music forever.  This not only helped me be able to play what I hear others do, it also helped me to create my own music that I had in my head but I didn’t quite know how to get it out. The good news is that with technology it has made it really easy to learn how to play instruments by taking video courses and watching tutorials online. There are tons of free content on youtube and Facebook that can and will help people that want to learn a new method here and there and I definitely encourage you to do a search to check out some of those videos. Here is what I used to go to the next level with my piano playing. Check out what I used below.
