Bridging Heart and Marketing 4

My friends, colleagues, coaches, and mentors, Judith Sherven and Jim Sniechowski, are convening amazing learning sessions in the fourth of their Bridging Heart and Marketing events. Two have been live events; this one is the second as a virtual event. (Very cost effective.) Judith and Jim have assembled a roster of great teachers aligned with the heart-based, soft sell marketing tribe that they lead.

Things are changing so fast online that it’s not always easy to keep  up. In particular, conscious business owners and heart-based healers, caregivers, and service providers find that the speed of change in the online world coupled with the frantic urgency of many of the (especially hard-sell) offers just makes them decide to bow out. Ignore it and hope it goes away.

It won’t be going away any time soon. As Judith and Jim point out, the internet has become the new virtual shopping mall… For finding a do-able and high-integrity path through the online marketing jungle, Judith and Jim are guides that I’ve found to be both trustworthy and transparent in sharing their knowledge.

They came to online marketing after many years as therapists.  Their profound knowledge and gifts for healing relationships informs this crucial aspect of online business. After all, what is business but a varied array of relationships?  They came into online marketing only a few years ago — when both were in their 60s. To hear their story alone offers huge lessons and insights you can’t get anywhere else.

I’ve participated in the last two Bridging Heart and Marketing events, connecting with partners, mentors, friends, and thought leaders I wouldn’t  have met any other way.

Bridging Heart and Marketing Number 4 starts tomorrow, so don’t miss it.

Your First Steps into Internet Marketing

As some of you know, I have been re-imagining my business and adding the tools and processes of internet marketing to strengthen my efforts at tribe-building and getting the word out.  Lots of new things are in process in this fledgling Write Synergies world I’m creating, so look for more announcements soon.

One place where I’m developing my expertise — a really a critical piece of the ongoing communication infrastructure — is this thing called internet marketing.  The thing is, there’s lots of hoopla out there, plenty of scams, and also some really good teachers and coaches who make a LOT of assumptions about what you already know.

Many of us who are interested in using these tools don’t even realize what we don’t know, and so jump into those learning situations and find we’re in over our head.  It’s all painted as “so easy.”

Well, it’s not rocket science, but it does take a certain attitude and most certainly it requires a step-by-step approach starting with the VERY basics.  We need guides who acknowledge the true  newbie nature of many of us who want to add internet marketing to our bag of tricks.

I have been in their circle and working with/learning from Judith Sherven and Jim Sniechowski for more than a year.  I am impressed anew every time they do their teaching magic.  For this course, Judith and Jim have teamed up with Tom Justin to create First Step Internet Marketing. It is a true step-by-step learning experience that I refer to often in my own process of business building.

The Best Deal
They have a special that’s wrapping up by the end of the day on Sunday.

Their course is only available through August 9th
at their Stimulus Incentive price of only $147.

That’s right – only $147!

http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/aftrack.asp?afid=961738

That’s 6 step-by-step sessions emailed to you weekly, so you don’t get overwhelmed.  Plus, they have some added and immediately useful bonuses.
(I could go on a rant about bonuses for courses that are overwhelming and unrelated, but I’ll save that to another time.)

So, if you are able to act now, you will get this hands-on course
for only $147 — before they raise it back to
very nearly their pre-Stimulus price in honor of
the growing signs of recovery.

Still a Good Deal
Starting August 10th their special course price
will be $100 more — $247.  (And this too is still a very good value for the detailed step-by-step info you get.)

If you are able to check it out and make a decision before the end of the day on Sunday, you will save $100.

Get their course now by going to

http://www.1shoppingcart.com/app/aftrack.asp?afid=961738

AND there’s no risk to you! Judith, Jim, and Tom
are so certain that you will be totally delighted
with their course that they provide a
60-day satisfaction guarantee!

course right now –

Key Words Help Online Prospects Find You

Key Word Basics

Who are your people?  When you are presenting your services via online marketing, what words might potential customers type into a search engine like Google for the problem you solve, the issue you address, or your book or web site that answers their questions?  Identifying key search terms specifically targeting your niche will help you attract the people who are looking for the answers, solutions, and issues for which your books and resources address the need.

In search engines, key words are the search terms that people type in to find the information they need or the problem them want to solve. If you have a book or other info product, ideally you will have one or more key words related to your book’s subject matter in the title, making the book findable to the people who will be searching online for this information or resource.

For example, Dan Poynter’s Self-Publishing Manual is a book title that is key word and search engine friendly.

What follows is a list of resources that report on how many searches are conducted for various words and phrases in key word searches. Some of these tools break out search counts by search engine.  The most general search terms will have millions of searches.  Ideally you want to focus with specificity within your niche.  There are experts and strategies for sharpening your key word strategy, but these tools will get you started.

Spacky is a free and basic key word search tool. It pulls in data about searches from several different search engines.
http://www.spacky.com/

KWmap is a site where you can see search results visually in a kind of mind-map string of terms that flow from your central (or seed) term.  Then the terms are listed alphabetically. Often by starting with the most general term, you will be able to identify the specific string of key words that most closely match your topic.
http://www.kwmap.com/

At Spyfoo, you can also get a reading on the popularity of search terms by seeing how much it costs to buy them on a pay-per-click basis.
http://www.spyfoo.com

Wordtracker has a free key word search tool, but they also sell by subscription. (Obviously you can more deeply analyze the data using their fee-based version.) WordTracker’s free key word search tool is: http://freekeywords.wordtracker.com/

In addition, Wordtracker offers free how-to articles from experts and info at http://www.wordtracker.com/academy.  They also offer books for sale by some of their expert contributors.

http://www.wordtracker.com/academy/keyword-research   is a round-up of several articles specifically about keyword research.

You’ll also find their free ebook guide to key word research at: http://www.wordtracker.com/academy/keyword-research-guide.

Beginners Mind for Online Marketing

Somewhere along the line, after leaving the
publishing business to create an independent
writing practice, it occurred to me that
I was missing something.  I served clients'
copywriting and communication needs.
But something more was calling--to leverage
my skills and passions, to find a way
to share knowledge and insights with a larger
audience and more effectively.

Perhaps you too have been hearing the
siren call of online "passive revenue?"
Well, it's not always as easy as some of
those online gurus make it out to be.
A lot of those how-tos make a ton of assumptions
about what you know already.
If, like me, you know that there's A LOT you
don't know, then find someone willing to show
you the ropes--and not starting in the middle,
but from the very most basic beginning.

If you are tempted by the possibility of not just
trading your hours for dollars,
(whether it's coaching or consulting or copywriting
or designing or whatever is the gift you offer)
then find some teachers who will show you the very
basics, every step of the way.
You might even start with the First Step--
specifically First Step Internet Marketing.

My friends and mentors, Judith Sherven,
Jim Sniechowski, & Tom Justin, created
First Step Internet Marketing.  It's the ONLY
Internet marketing course out
there for the true beginner!
They are committed to showing you how
simple and basic it is
to get started creating your financial success
online.  They're giving a Fr.ee Teleseminar -
Tuesday April 7 at 6 pm PST/9 pm EST
http://cli.gs/yD80bd

Online sales have continued to grow -- even now.
Curious about how this works?
Even if you can't be on the call, you can
get the recording afterwards--
as long as you get registered in advance.
You'll be sent the audio recording - at no charge. 

It's okay to be a beginner.  It's even good to
approach something
as multi-faceted as internet marketing
with what Zen masters call "Beginner's Mind."

Sign up now to check out the possibilities for yourself.
