Online vs. In Person Prospecting

QandAsmallI’ve had many people ask me how online marketing differs from in person marketing.  The short answer…

It doesn’t!

Why would I say that?  Just like in person, when you are using social spaces online to prospect (market your business), you are dealing with real people.  Many people mistakenly think that they should conduct themselves differently online than the do offline.  That couldn’t be further from the truth.

Many times in my trainings, I’ve said “If you wouldn’t say or do it offline, don’t say or do it online”.  The next time you feel the need to scream at everyone you know on social spaces about your wonderful business, STOP!!  THINK!!  Ask yourself…would I do or say this in person?

Shouting about your business online is like jumping on a table in the middle of a party and yelling about your business.  However, if you set up your profile properly, you can be the interesting person who everyone wants to ask about their business.  People will come to you and ask you to tell them more if they like what you’ve set up on your profiles.

This is why a clear, concise, “About Me” statement on your cover photo is so important.  It’s also important that you learn how to properly repost photos so you are not sending people to the sites of other reps when you post them.  There are many, many ways you can go about setting up your profile so when you do go out (on social spaces) and socialize, people will come look to find out who you are and what you do.

 

 

Breastfeeding A Four Year Old?

When to stop breastfeeding is a highly personal decision.

I was appalled that Time Magazine decided to feature a mom on the cover who was breastfeeding her son, who appears to be about 4 years old.  Don’t get me wrong…I’m not against the mother breastfeeding this child.  I am against the photo on the cover of the magazine.

The mom supposedly did this to draw attention to something called “attachment parenting”.  Take a look at the cover and tell me if this mother and child appear to be attached in any way OTHER than his mouth on her breast?  To me, the photo does not depict a loving, attached mom.  She (and the child, frankly) appears rather UNattached.

If you want to breastfeed your three, four, five, six, seven year old, that is YOUR business.  But…you do not have to do it in public.  By two or three years old, a child is old enough to understand that they would have to wait a few minutes to get “fed”.   If your child is older than two and you are using this “attachment parenting” excuse to continue breastfeeding, go to a room by yourselves and bond with your child.  Your child is NOT getting “attachment” by having a boob stuck into his or her mouth in public.  That is not a bonding thing.  It should be a private time between mom and child, not a public spectacle.

When you breastfeed a baby, you hold them and nurture them.  You don’t stand them on a chair and stick your boob in their mouth.

 

 

George Zimmerman’s Bloody Head?

The following is MY OPINION.  If you would like to leave an intelligent comment and debate the issue, feel free.  If you can’t be nice in a comment, don’t bother.  😉

 

LOL…I had to laugh when I saw the photo of George Zimmerman’s “bloody head” on the news.  Here…take a look yourself:

Must be none of the people who claim this is consistent with someone “bashing his head into concrete” have EVER had their head bashed into the ground.  And, for the record, YES, I’ve had that happen so I know.

First of all…concrete is FLAT.  The first part of your head that hits the concrete gets it the worst.  That is NOT the top of your head, it’s the BACK of the head.  Feel your head…run your hand along from top to bottom on the back.  Your head is a ROUNDED shape.  As your hand comes down, you will feel that the MIDDLE of the back of your head sticks out farther than the top.   IN MY OPINION, it’s not possible (unless someone is holding you upside down like my brothers used to do to me) for you to hit the TOP of your head first when your head is being “bashed into concrete”.  It is clear from this photo that the blood is dripping DOWN from the top of his head.

Second…head wounds bleed.  They bleed a LOT!!  Even a minor head wound will bleed like crazy.  The blood coming from his head appears (IN MY OPINION) to be from scratches, not wounds from a head bashing.  I’ve seen many head wounds.

Third…I don’t give a rat’s behind if Trayvon Martin WAS bashing George Zimmerman’s head off the concrete (which I do not think happened), any time a grown adult is following a child, it’s not right.  Any time a grown adult attempts to engage a child on a dark, deserted street, you bet your butt that child has every right to bash that person’s head into the ground if said child gets that opportunity.

THE ONLY THING I’M DEBATING HERE IS THE HEAD WOUND.  As evidence comes out, I will post more.

 

What Is It? June 12 2010

Every so often I will be putting up a photo of a small part of a larger item. Take a look at the photo and leave a comment guessing what the item this is a small part of. The items will not be something exotic that no one has ever heard of. They will generally be something that most people will have seen before.

The contest will end when there is a winner. If the contest goes too long with no correct guesses, I’ll give a clue. I will contact the winner and mail out a surprise to you.

Good luck and let the guessing begin!!

UPDATE – We have had a lot of people looking at the picture, but no correct guesses yet.
Here is a clue – Think kitchen.

UPDATE 2We had no correct guesses and pretty much everyone has exhausted all of their guesses. Great job by the way!!! There were some really great guesses in the comments. Since Carmen was the closest, she will get the prize. Carmen, email me your mailing address so I can send out your prize.

OK folks, here it is.

Drumroll…..
