Business tip of the week: Answer Your emails!

27 Jul

Business tip of the week: Answer emails from coworkers employees and prospective customers immediately. 

So folks I had a guy offer me a job and I was actually excited to take it as a side job to build revenue so I could put money into my business as this will be short-term. 

However the terms changed; which happens in business

We can all relate to that

However, when I was trying to get some finalized answers on how we would proceed I had to wait 24 hours for one answer and now it’s been 24 hours without the finalized answer to this first answer. Now if that sounds convoluted it is because it is convoluted. 

There is no reason not to give bad news good news or just any news that relates to a business transaction or business Endeavor as fast as you humanely can. 

Now most of my readers know you need to answer the prospective client ASAP No Doubt -but folks let’s not forget to answer the people we work with, we may work with, we work for, we work alongside, Pick a way you want to say that -but it is a common courtesy to make sure you answer all the emails from a person you get not just the ones you feel comfortable- or between your PS4 games or in those other little distractions you have.

 Good business is consistent communication.

Entrepreneur Freedom Tip: opt out of sales emails

25 Jan

Hey folks, here’s a quick tip:

Opt out of as much junk mail/email marketing as you can.

The average person gets 80 plus emails a day and it’s a sure bet that a lot of that can be skipped over.

So my call to action of the week is for everyone to wake up, read something up lifting, and after that unsubscribe and or opt out of at least. 10 email threads this week.
Toms, zulilly, facebook updates, finishline, eastbay, tmz, or even that quazi-valuable entrepreneur who’s posts are mildly useful.

Bottom line if it does not add tangible value to your. Daily existence and or business – UNSUBSCRIBE!

Free Webinars And Your Business

3 Feb

So I’ve had a few questions on this and figured I’d make a quick blog post about it.
Webinars do you really need them?
Survey says Yes.

Webinars for the uninitiated are basically live or prerecorded broadcasts (though generally speaking and for the purposes of this post live) that aim to teach something, conduct an open forum, recruit people or sell product. Many people love this tool simply because it creates the image of greater value instantaneously.
Now I’m not arguing that they aren’t more valuable, just the opposite. However we must make note of all pertinent factors and qualities. People generally feel more tied into a webinar then a three way call. They also like the live action feel and flow of a live webinar compared to a list of Youtube videos you shoot them in a email. Those work too but it isn’t quite the same.
Every webinar I’ve been on feels different. The ability to ask questions on the spot is one way I’ve always felt more connected to the webinar leader. And hence I was more connected and thus more inclined to buy or join- get the drift?
A good webinar can even be as simple as a slide show with your face in the left hand corner as you teach or “drop science.”. Intelligence can even be perused in a different fashion as the audience can better gauge who you are as a person. This appearance of intimacy that forges bonds is quite bankable. And I don’t mean to sound callous or ambivalent, rather I want people to know how useful this tool is. I’m not attempting to imply a contrived feeling will occur but it is possible.
If I’ve confused you let me say this-
People prefer webinars statistically.
And as times change so must our strategies. 3 way calls work. No question. But in the day and age of the internet it is time we adjust methods and recalculate our approach. Twitter and Facebook and now Pinterest have all show that a new dynamic in marketing and recruiting has taken our planet by storm. Plain old sharing has become a multi-billion dollar business.
Don’t you want a piece of all of that?
If you could easily reach fans, recruits, teammates and so on wouldn’t you want to?
And speaking of teammates isn’t it hard to build and network properly across your city let alone across the globe?
I know I have a hard time with it and I’m sure you do as well. The phone just doesn’t cut all the time and plain old web chat limits your audience to two cameras and who ever can huddle around them.
A great webinar need not belong. In the beginning aim for a 30 minute webinar with a 30 minute Q&A after. Let people speak so it takes the pressure off you and let’s you gauge their response toward you and what you have offered. And don’t forget to invite them to your next webinar and or event (and of curse get names and numbers if you don’t have them- though they have to login for some webinar services so you may be privy to this data already).
