Twitter, Tweetlead and building your list.

I love twitter.

Years ago, I started a networking group for women in business. I knew nothing about Social Media but it was suggested to me that I start using twitter. My first experience with twitter was a positive one. Shortly after joining Twitter I ended up filling a room with strangers on the launch of my networking group … people I had met and interacted with on Twitter.

Twitter has come a long way since then and is still going strong…

320 million people use Twitter today.

1.3 billion are registered on Twitter

500 million people visit twiter.com without logging in every month

66 million twiter users in the United States alone

When I started on Twitter, it was great with just engagement and content but imagine now with new tools what it can do.

As we leverage the internet to reach a wider audience and impact more people with our messages, we know the importance of collecting information from our audience so that we can build relationships with these people.

Enter Tweetleads and Twitter cards to help you get your message in front of large groups of targeted audience while also enabling you to collect their email address so you can bring them further value and market to them.
Here’s a brief overview of how Tweetlead works:

  • When you tweet your offer you can get one click signups to your list
  • Instead of the usual 140 characters, your tweet is automatically extended
  • No need for landing pages or forms. Prospects information is auto populated and they are added to your list
  • Integrates with Mailchimp, Get Response, Aweber, Constant Contact, Ontraport and Sendreach
  • Works with all devices
  • Official feature with Twitter Ads

To learn more about Tweetlead and to join and get started on collecting unlimited leads with just one click, check it out here.

To your success and outrageous goals,

5 ways to work your online home business without really working during the holidays

Whether it is the Fourth of July, Christmas holidays, Spring Break or Summer Holidays,  it can be difficult to manage family fun and social activities while still building and keeping revenue flowing in your home business.

… but it isn’t impossible and can be done with just a few tweaks to your current daily activity. It is especially fun and easy to do in an online business. And if your business involves positive change for your clients, the holidays are a perfect time to continue marketing as people are ready for change in the new year and they are searching for you to provide them a solution. There is a huge opportunity to actually increase your business and clientelle during the holidays without losing your mind.

Here are 5 tips you can implement immediately to prepare for the holidays and be able to spend time with your family:

1. Create and schedule your blog posts well in advance. Imagine having 10 ready to go blog posts that get Screen-Shot-2015-12-10-at-4.03.46-PMpublished automatically every day during the holidays. Providing value to your clients and prospects during the holidays while you are sipping eggnog… It’s a win-win. Imagine how amazing and dedicated you appear to your readers. And truth be told, whether they know you are sipping egg nog or not, you are dedicated because you prepared it for them in advance! Most blogging platforms allow you to schedule posts in advance so there is no need to login and publish your drafts AT ALL during the holidays!

2. Have a a lead capture page in place. Whether  you are currently running an online business or not, you should and need to have something in place where you can capture the names and emails of people who are interested in your business. This is a key in automating any type of business. The ability to capture leads and make sales even while you are sleeping or out singing Christmas Carols is absolutely necessary.

Automate it even further by having a preset campaign of emails going to your prospects and you are set. I use MLSP for my capture page and Get Response for my autoresponder. You can also use a variety of different autoresponder services from free ones like Mailchimp to Aweber. . They key is to do this before the holidays so you are set to work without really working.

3. Schedule social media posts. I don’t wait for  upcoming holidays to implement this. I use Hootesuite to schedule posts on all my Social media platforms well in advance. You can manage up to 5 Social Media accounts for free on Hootesuite. I personally prefer to set a certain time aside once or twice a week to schedule posts. Then I return every so often to engage with others and post something relevant .

holiday-pic-e14497813313014. Take pictures! Take advantage of the “social” part of the Holidays and implement it in your marketing. Some refer to this as lifestyle marketing. It does not take any more time to take some quick photos during the holidays of you having fun. These can easily be added or implemented in your marketing during or after the holidays. People love happiness. Post some ‘happy’ pictures during the holidays.

5. Put it all together. To be truly successful during the holidays without losing your mind, you will learn to put all the above steps together. Create your blog posts, schedule them to be published and emailed via your autoresponder. Schedule those blog posts to be posted on all your Social Media platforms as well and make sure all of this content going out has a way of collecting the leads via a Lead capture page so that you can continue to market to them and make sales while you are having fun!

It might sound complicated but it isn’t. Once done, there is very little to do to maintain. The point is leveraging the automation ability of these tools and the fact that the internet never sleeps so that your business isn’t barely surviving during the holidays but thriving.

Keep in mind though that the most important thing is taking time for you and your family. That’s why we do what we do, isn’t it?

To your success,

The Importance of a Sit Spot for Your Wellbeing and Your Business

Ghandi once said, “All  of man’s problems, stem from his inability to sit quietly in a room alone.”

In this fast paced world and this high tech age of convenience and 24, hour “everything”, it is no wonder that we have become stressed, overwhelmed, overly connected to “things” and disconnected from nature.

For this reason, I was more than just intrigued  when a concept or practice was introduced to me called the “Sit Spot”

The Sit Spot is described as an age-old practice of going to one spot in nature on a regular basis over a long period of time and just being still and observing your surroundings

How can the Sit Spot benefit you, your well-being and perhaps even your business?

First, one can’t deny that there is something special about finding a magical personal spot to just be. I often speak about going for walks when you get stuck in life or in your business just to disconnect from everything and be alone with your thoughts and feelings. I often use the walk to visualize, to pray and get some much needed fresh air and exercise. The “sit spot” has its similarities to my walking in nature but I believe it takes it a step further…

It slows things down in a very fast paced world. It allows you to embrace the importance of taking time for onself. It is a major opportunity for personal growth and it let’s nature  just… “happen”.

In our interactive push-botton world, when was the last time you took the time to just “let nature happen”. When was the last time you lived in the present moment and observed what was around you outdoors instead of being in constant action and interaction. It’s amazing and powerful when you just “be”. You will be amazed at what you discover.

So how does this exposure to nature help you in your business and in your life? Exposure to nature helps:

– promote good health
– It is known to reduce stress
– Provides a peaceful calming environment and effect
– Has been connected with higher test scores and graduation rates
– It helps promote creativity
– It increases self confidence

Sit spots, having just been introduced to me are becoming a daily habit. I intend to share my experiences with the “sit spot” practice when I am well into it and I invite you to do the same.

For the next 30 days, take at least a few minutes a day, pick an outdoor spot that you will return to every day and just …stop and be still.

The results can be amazing. I look forward to hearing from you about how it has helped you.

To your success,
