New Internet Marketing Training Site

You may or may not know that I stepped away from my generic coaching for about a year. I’ve recently rethought that decision based on feedback from my peeps. Many whom I’ve coached in the past expressed that they would like to be able to coach with me again.

So…I decided to go back to generic coaching!! This is what I’m good at and what I love to do. And, after all, I have always taught people to do what they love and find a way to monetize that.

Over the past couple months, I’ve been setting up a member training site for you! Inside there is lots of great info. Some is free for beginners, some is for paid members only. It’s all generic and can be used by anyone in any company.

Here’s a little about the new site:

Feeling Overwhelmed? New to Internet Marketing?

If you have a business, you’ve probably realized by now that you need to be online. You need to be marketing your business in a space where people go when they are looking for a product or service. Then you must find a way to be seen amongst the growing number of products or services just like yours who are all vying for the same space.

How in the world do you make that happen?

Find out at the new coaching site.

See you on the inside!

Do You Suffer From Business Building ADHD?

adhdI’ve seen this way too many times recently.  Even from “leaders” who have good sized teams.  They are building a business.  They get their team headed in one direction.  Maybe they even start a group for people who want to work with them and go in one particular direction.

BUT THEN…

They get on another training or another call/webinar and the next best idea comes along.  All of a sudden, the people who joined group A are left and group B starts.  The leader abandons what they were doing with group A to start working with group B.

BUT THEN…

They get on another training or another call/webinar and the next best idea comes along.  All of a sudden…

You get the picture.

This is happening all over the place.

People are trying to market their business online, but they don’t focus on one thing first.  They want to do everything.

That’s the problem.  That’s the reason the majority of people online aren’t successful.  They don’t find one thing and stick with it long enough for it to work.  Then, any team they have (if they have one at all) gets confused because they were doing A and all of a sudden, they are doing F.  They’ve gone through B, C, D, E…began working on each of those ideas, then directions got changed.   Their focus went in another direction.

Sure…you may get some customers or team members this way, but chances are you will basically be getting people who end up confused and quitting.

Are you ready to get your business headed in the right direction?  Sign up today for a strategy session and end the ADHD of building your business today.

I look forward to working with you.

Results Based Income

People always tell me I’m a natural at teaching things in plain language that anyone can understand.

When I was going through school, I was one of those kids everyone loves to hate. I never studied a day in my life. I could be in a classroom and not even really pay attention and soak up the information. As a matter of fact, I’ve never written a term paper, very rarely did my homework, and as long as I was physically in the classroom, I passed every test with flying colors. I was on High Honor Roll almost every marking period.

I don’t tell you this to show you that I’m really smart, but to tell you how I learn. I could take what was being taught and basically translate it into language that my friends could understand. Many of them would come to me because they just couldn’t understand things the way they were being taught by the teachers.

When I went out into the work force, I realized this was a bad thing. I would get my work done fast and employers would expect me to do more and more. I quickly noticed that I was doing two or three times the work of other employees for the same pay.

I realized that I wanted to get paid based on my efforts, not based on time I put in at a job. I remembered my science teacher in 7th grade telling me that I was a natural leader and I should be a teacher.

School teachers make the same amount of money whether they are exceptional or barely effective at their job. I knew I needed to find another way of teaching where I could get paid based on my results and not on the time I put in.

Results based income. I like that.

Empower Network’s New Viral Blogging System

Some of my readers have asked me what I think of the new ENv2 Empower Network Viral Blogging System.  I haven’t said much about the new blogging system because, frankly, there are major flaws in my opinion.

First, I will address the flaws.  Here is what I see:

  • System is not set up for the serious blogger
  • Public commenting not allowed on blogs at this time.
    This is a huge part of what makes a blog a blog.  You must be able to interact with your readers.  If you have to make them go elsewhere (facebook, twitter, email, etc…) to comment on what you are writing about, you cut your interaction rate drastically.
  • HTML coding or WYSIWYG editor not allowed. 
    The only formatting allowed is bold, italics, underline and lists.  You are not able to have headings in the posts.  You are not able to add a form to a post.  You are not able to align images (left, centered, right).
  • There is NO “Save Draft” feature and the Empower Network website times out frequently.
    This has caused MANY lost blog posts and LOTS of frustration among EN bloggers.
  • Very limited customization is allowed.
    Only one sidebar banner, header and footer are customizable…or rather…exchangeable.  You can change out these banners with different banners, but are not allowed to add other “widgets” to the sidebar.  I always teach to have your contact info right on the sidebar because many people will not click on a contact page.  That is not allowed.  I also teach to add a tracking code (separate from Google Analytics, which is allowed) to the sidebar of your blog.  The sidebar should appear on every post and page, therefore, that tracking code will track where your visitor comes from, how long they stay on each page, what they click on, where they go, etc…  That is not possible with this blogging system the way it is at this time.  If you are promoting multiple things on your blog, you can’t add multiple banners (images) in the sidebar. This cuts down drastically on your income producing ability.
  • The mobile app only works on Apple devices or the most recent version of Android. 
    Older Android versions are not supported on the app.

These are just the major (BASIC) things that I feel every blogging platform should have or allow.  Until these things are fixed, I can not and WILL NOT promote the Empower Network (EN) Viral Blogging System (ENV2).

Now the good news:

If you are beginning blogging and want a blog that is optimized for the search engines, ENV2 is the way to go.  The blog is there, no bells and whistles, all set up for you.  You can either change out the 3 banners I referenced above (if you are promoting something other than EN) or leave the banners as they are (if you are going to be promoting EN) and begin blogging.

If you are using an iPhone, iPad, other Apple device or the latest version of Android, you can blog right from your phone.  Shoot a video and with one touch you can upload it to your blog.  This EN app truly gives new meaning to the terms “mobile blogging” and “mobile lifestyle”.

If you are wanting to learn internet marketing, the Empower Network Products are the best!  What you will learn (even with just the basic Viral Blogging System bonuses) is outstanding, solid content.

So…bottom line…YES…I am still promoting Empower Network.  Do I think you should join if you are a serious blogger?  YES.  Not for the blogging platform.  I rarely use it myself.  However, you should join for the PRODUCTS.  The information you will get from the products alone is worth ten times what your investment will be.

If you are ready to get going and start making some serious money (either by promoting EN products or your own opportunity), join my Empower team here.  (First see our income disclosure here)
