Memorial Day is a Day of Remembering

Memorial Day is for remembering those that paid the ultimate sacrifice to keep us free. Today I received several emails wishing me a Happy Memorial Day followed by advertising. How offensive.

I just don’t understand?

I just don’t understand why people don’t put their phone number on their social sites.  We estimate that only 30% of members have their phone numbers on LinkedIn.  I learned long ago that you want your visitors one click from information. Contact information should be easy to find.  Just because it’s social media doesn’t mean the the phone is dead. The phone is still part of the 21st-century. The hierarchy of best selling is 1) face to face, 2) phone, 3&4) email and text. Phone numbers for Google plus members are even less  likely to have their phone number published…  Google plus members don’t know where to place the information.

If you need help simply call me 310-736-5787.  You can also text me.

Never Again!

  So, how much technology are you bringing into your business?
  For years the laugh of my family is that I’m a technologist but refused to learn how to program my tv remotes.
  So, I finally made the decision to learn it. I asked my 22 year old son to show me, and I took notes on google drive documents to end this ongoing frustration. I did what I constantly ask my customer to do, LEARN and stop procrastination. 
  Here are several more technology tips you need to think about.
1) Google Voice- Stop worrying about your voicemail filling up. And, save time each week not deleting voicemails. Go to www.google.com/voice. I have over 600 voicemails on my phone not stressed out and wasting valuable time not deleting voicemails. 
2) Google Drive- Interactive documents sitting on the cloud. The wave of the future. Emailing documents back and forth with customers/prospects is horribly inefficient. You and your customers can be making changes at the same time, seeing changes real time and track them. Log into your google/gmail account. Click on the box with 9 gray buttons at the top right of your screen. Click on the drive icon.
3) Internet Marketing social Media- LinkedIn/google +, etc. For business, these are essentials. Brand yourself. Get found. Online has changed. Web sites were the means for marketing your business, social media has dramatically changed the world of online. 
4) Analytics- Understand your web site or social media analytics. Understand the traffic to your web site. You’ll be surprised how many visitors reach your web site through social media if you’ve set up your social media pages correctly. Do the research. Talk to your domain host for instructions for log on.
5) Keep your customers updated. […]

Your Most Important Goals for 2014!

  Did you include these goals in your 2014 plan?
  35 years of teaching technology, and 20 years running online companies, Edge Up Network can help  you.
  

1) Create Relationships. Meeting people one time is not a relationship.  Have a systematic approach to being in front of propects several times.
2) Social Media- LinkedIn. Learn how to make LinkedIn turn into revenue. The site is exploding. 40 million new members in the last 3-4 months.
4) Other technologies. Group texting. People view text messages within 90 seconds vs email 90 minutes. Video, YouTube is the 2nd most visited site on the internet, over 1 billion visitors per month. YouTube is a search engine. Where does this fit into your plan? Want to learn how to group text?
5) Referral Marketing (networking). Most businesses get most of their new business by referral from clients. Research referral networking groups and commit yourself to networking.
6) Work on you business not in your business. If you are not devoting some time to working on your business, growth will tend stagnate.
7)  Stay Committed. Don’t expect instant results. Building relationships take time.

Planning 2014- 7 Helpful Tips!

  Make 2014 a HUGE success. Technology is changing the way we run our businesses.
  35 years of teaching technology, and 20 years running online companies, Edge Up Network can help         you.
  Start here with 7 important tips:
1) Set goals.  Put them in writing. Know how you get to those goals. Numbers don’t lie. How many introductions do you make to get to a sale?
2) Social Media Technology should play a part in your growth. Social media is both technology and marketing.  The growth of new members on LinkedIn in just the last 6 months is greater than the size of the entire internet when I got involved in the internet 20 years ago. There were only 50 million people on the internet in 1994.
3) Social Media- LinkedIn. Y0u will lose market share to your competition if you don’t migrate to social media. LinkedIn is great for business growth. 90% of the members don’t know how to turn LinkedIn into revenue. This is precisely why Edge Up Network exists today. Our program drives your connections to face to face meetings.
4) Other technologies. Group texting. People view text messages within 90 seconds vs email 90 minutes. Video, YouTube is the 2nd most visited site on the internet, over 1 billion visitors per month. YouTube is a search engine. Where does this fit into your plan? Want to learn how to group text?
5) Building relationships. Most people need building relationships. Sales coaches state that you need to be in front of people 3 to 7 times before you can take them from prospect to relationship to sale. What is your plan? Face to face takes a lot of time. What’s in your plan that’s going […]
