"Stick 'em Up, " Gates To Warren Buffet As He Shares Startup Tips via @HaikuDeck

"Stick 'em Up, " Gates To Warren Buffet As He Shares Startup Tips via @HaikuDeck | baby boomer entrepreneurs | Scoop.it

Buffet's Startup Tips Are so important I created a @HaikuDeck for his tips and for implied startup tips such as:

* Multiple Money - don't depend on one income source.

* Spending - buying things you don't need means selling stuff you do...eventually.

* Savings - Save then spend not the other way around.

* Investment - Never put all eggs in one basket no matter how beautiful the egg.
* Honesty - Honesty and character and lack of it are expensive and amplifed by money so don't expect from "cheap people".

Thought this was a good Scoop to reprise given Buffet's offer to pay $1B for a perfect NCAA Tourney Bracket. Talk about how to get millions in free PR (lol). As if Warren needs "free" anything :). Smart money always makes MORE money.

Simple ways to think about what your business should do when first getting off the ground.  The ideas make sense when you read them out loud, but are often missed.

Angela Heath's insight:

I'd add to this....share with customers what you know about them...without telling them directly -- naturally.  It's important to let your market know you understand and feel their pains.  It's great when you share there pain.

This post explains HOW to add a YouTube button to a website. The reason tis advice is particularly important for #startups is VIDEO is an important marketing medium for any startup. Startups have something NEW and COOL happening frequently.

CAPTURE those moments and put up a YouTube channel. Now here is the tricky part. Don't JUST put up a YouTube channel. If you know #socialmedia you know your content makes the rich. Rich in traffic, SEO and money.

Only way to make sure your content makes YOU money to is:

1. Drive links back from your social properties.

2. Always THINK about what content should go to THEM vs. YOU.

Your content should be more "Tell the story of US". YouTube content should be about how you fit into the tribe of whatever it is you do. If you are a leader be sure to act like one by NOT claiming to be a leader. Best way to BE a leader online is to curate content across proprietary lines.

Startups take note VIDEO is your medium and be sure to play some videos inside your technical stack in addition to having a YouTube channel Remember to make yourself rich not just Google and Facebook.
