In the Information Age, the more information you can provide to potential customers, the more likely they are to learn from you, and find you to be a credible, reliable source. Credibility is the first step to earning confidence. Customer confidence leads to increased sales. Focus on delivering QUALITY content about your business and your services, and your public perception will increase…as will your sales.
Cisco predicts that 80% of all internet traffic will be video by 2015. If you’re not learning about how to use video to grow your business online, it’s time to get started. Consider video presentations about your business and services. Go for quality and differentiate yourself from your competition early in the game. Video brochures, video newsletters, and regular video communications on your web site will identify your business as progressive and “in touch”. Become friends with your local video production company and get a leg up on your competition.
Facebook will reach 1 Billion members in late 2011 or early 2012. That’s almost one quarter of the world’s population as members on one web site. If you don’t have a Facebook page, now is the time to get one. Social media isn’t just for idle workers. Businesses are using social media to connect to a larger world of customers. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and others are leading the way. But don’t just be a follower. Lead the way by using these great business applications that are take social media one step further: Chatter by SalesForce.com, Jabber… Show and Share…and Quad…all by Cisco. From webcasting, and video sharing to cutting edge business networking applications, our world is going Social. Don’t get left behind. Be an early adapter and get a “leg up” on your competition.
I hope this post finds you doing well! Today I wanted to bring you a short video tutorial on what I am calling, “How to Use Facebook Ads on the Cheap!” Many of you have explored using Facebook ads and to some degree probably have had some great success, but Facebook ads are starting to get just as expensive as PPC on Google if you have a competitive keyword. However, I recently learned a new way to use Facebook ads without breaking the bank. Check out the video to see what I am talking about!

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I mentioned last week that I was going to start a new weekly post that talks about financial intelligence, so this week I have a simple question for you, but before I get to that let me answer a question I received from a reader on financial intelligence. Dave, “Why should I care about financial intelligence? I come in do my job get paid and make a decent living!” Making a great living is great and most of you probably are more interested in reading something else or more interested in seeing what your friends are doing on Facebook. That is fine but I have decided that my intent for this blog going forward is to help people create a life that allows financial freedom. For some of you having a good paying job is all you are gong to what out of life, but for a few of you I know you want to create a life that allows you to live your dreams and have the freedom to do what you want. So, with that being said, if you aspire to have financial freedom then these weekly posts are going to be helpful for you!
Okay, moving on to the topic today, Financial IQ. What is your Financal IQ? Don’t worry I had no idea what mine was until I started reading and studying Robert Kiyosaki. In his books he lays it out in a simple way, so I thought that instead of me trying to explain why don’t I let him explain it to you. Check out this link and read the short post. Once you have done that you will have a better idea of what the heck I am talking about when I say Financial IQ. If you are anything like I was when I first read it I was shocked at what I thought I knew and what I thought were assets.
Let me know what your Financial IQ is by posting your comments.
Until next week,
In health and wealth
