Attract and Engage is Better than Chase and Convince

Those are the words of a good friend of mine, personal branding expert Ronald Earl Wilsher. We recently did a Google Hangout and chatted about how to actually attract clients instead of chasing them.  The hangout is below but its an hour long, so I ll feature parts of it across several posts. The main points for today are, be yourself, be found, and be fun. Be yourself By being authentically yourself, you are naturally going to be unique. That is because even if you have a twin, like Ronnie does, no one else is exactly you. When you are uniquely you, your ideal customer will be able to connect with you. Be Found Ronnie said that just as you want to connect with customers, they are out there trying to connect with you. You need to be out there, either networking, creating content, or both so they can find you! Be fun Ronnie only puts one type of person on his mailing list: the person with a sense of humor.  Just like Facebook, people avoid boring.

Facebook Algorithm Demands You Not Be Boring

On yesterday s post, I was asked what I thought about the Facebook Algorithm that keeps fans from seeing your posts so I m going to share with you some ways to make sure your posts are seen.  The Facebook Algorithm, called Edge Rank, was designed to keep people active on Facebook by only displaying things people find interesting.  It is designed to keep boring things off of your news feed.  So in short, if you want your posts to be seen by your Facebook fans, you need to not be boring! Every time you post, you should be encouraging your fans to comment, like, and share.  When they engage with your Facebook business page by commenting, liking or sharing, they are showing that they are interested in your content, and Facebook will continue to show them your stuff. I offer a 7-step formula of types of posts that help you to get that engagement it s part of the Facebook Easy Button, and it s free!

Organizing Your Computer Files

I know lots of people take a new look at things in January and try to get a bit tidier, but to me its kind of a spiritual thing. I really believe that the more tidy my environment, the more money I bring in call it silly if you will but it is always true for me:D In one of the forum s I m in, someone asked how we organize the files on our computer.  I just laughed, because who has time for that, right?  Well wow, I was wrong.  My friend Rob, saw how interested everyone was in actually being able to find their computer files, that he made some over the shoulder videos to show how to clean up and pretty up, like this: Newly Organied! Isn t that great? Best $10 spent for him to show you how to find your stuff fast!
