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).

What service should you use?
Check out http://webex.com first.
Then maybe gotowebinar or a few others.
For a complete list reply to this article or email me.

Productivity Plan (no frills, no sales, just facts)

13 Sep

Productivity Plan
(no frills, no sales, just facts)

Productivity not activity my friends. A lot of people will focus on action as that seems to be the best. However do you swim?
Ever tread water?
Yeah, exactly you’re going nowhere. And sure you’re keeping afloat- but is that what you wanted out of life? I bet not.

Average is not our intended purpose and I always say can’t isn’t in a man’s vocabulary. So let’s cover some quick steps to increase your productivity.

-Don’t be on auto-pilot.
Have you got your game plan? Are you running through the motions. Don’t. We all have needs and goals and a system at work. Learn yours.
More on this here: http://bit.ly/OiUZdp

-Self development plan.
You have to grow. Period. You don’t, your income doesn’t. Your quality of life doesn’t. Your business, yup it won’t either. Momentum can take you places. No question. However if you don’t grow you will not keep it. Life only works when you work. And your number one goal is to grow yourself. Commit to yourself. When you work on you everything else falls into place.
If you’re winging it chances are at a certain point you will make a bad decision. Skip that. GROW YOU.

-Understand value.
Its not about your perception of value but whether or not you actually add to the market place.
A lot of people think they create value when they do what they like, how they like. I like to write, no question about that- but I want to give back here. So I do my homework. I ask questions. I research. And when a concept comes together that will deliver the value, I write. Value comes in many forms. To make sure you give value- see what people think of what you do, your output and performance.
Taken a step further and its also about what you add to your community. The neighbor who doesn’t care isn’t helping. The one who looks out for you in invaluable. You both gain a friend, an ally and peace of mind.
Get the gist?

-Basic marketing concepts are a must.
I’m still learning these concepts. But without a knowledge of key marketing concepts you will stutter start often.
Know how to reach your target group.
Know your marketing needs and strategies.
Dan Kennedys Ultimate Sales Letter is a good start point.

-Outcome isn’t everything.
Don’t worry about how it ends but how you do. When you focus only on closing you will lose recruits and clients. When all you want is home runs. You will miss a base hit waiting on that perfect pitch. The less I care what happens and more about what I’m doing- the better my results. See the correlation?

-Exercise Daily.
Exercise frees the mind. It clears the intellect to create and comprehend as well. Exercise will also stave off sickness which means you have less down time thus creating more time for business. You can exercise at home.
Get an app, take the stairs, and park further away.
Join a gym.
Any option to increase your physical activity.

-Create a routine.
A simple one you can stick too.
A plan that will increase performance.
This will. Increase value and breed success. And the best part is that it doesn’t have to be a marathon. It doesn’t have to be endurance based either. Its not a marathon. Its a habit. Its a tool. An easy routine will ensure success. It will create value. And when you tell people to do this- they will see that you have. And that means- they can do it too! Being able to reproduce what they see is a fast way to increase results.
Make the routine, stick with it, have integrity.
