Thanks again for all the comments and concern about the floods in Alberta (article can be seen here with pictures http://blog.smallbusinesscopywriter.com/rekindling-the-kundalini-in-your-business-and-life/ )
The cleanup has begun and an amazing thing is happening here in Calgary – complete strangers are wandering the streets helping homeowners in need strip dow their soaked drywall, and throw out all of their water-logged garbage. Not an easy time watching a lifetime of momentos getting tossed into the garbage – but in a disaster like this people are counting their blessings and realizing things could be much, much worse.
My daughters and I will be helping out this long weekend as well, along with donating more food, clothes and bedding for those in need.
Guess what today is?
The LAST day of school for kids everywhere here.
My daughters are graduating Grade 7 (!!) and an exciting summer is about to begin.
I have been writing articles about marketing, business, and my daughters for 11 years now. Some have been on my newsletter list for that amount of time, others for just a month… but it has been an absolute blast!
At a time like this with summer vacations ahead, NOW is the time to start thinking about a simple strategy for summer cash flow.
For example, you need to think about the stories you are creating and using in your marketing this summer.
LOOK for ways to tie in personal events, local events, or national special occasions into your marketing.
Monday, July 1st is a National Holiday in Canada called Canada Day – but it is ALSO: Freedom from Fear of Speaking Day / International Joke Day / Financial Freedom Day / Build A Scarecrow Day / Children’s Art Day / National Creative Ice Cream Flavor Day
Point being that you don’t have to stick with the standard ideas in your promotions – PICK THE WEIRD ONES!
Those are the ones that stand out amidst all the clutter.
July is a time for family vacations, but it is ALSO:
* National Bikini Month
* National Tennis Month
* National Grilling On the Old BBQ Month
* National Make A Difference to Children Month
* National Wheelchair Beautification Month
* National Recreation and Parks Month
* Family Reunion Month
If you can’t find at least THREE ideas for articles, blog posts, Facebook updates or promotions from all those events – you need to give your head a shake.
Marketing is ALL about looking for the opportunity to share value – to stand out from the clutter – and to have a little bit of fun mixing in stories with marketing.
And NOTHING helps you get more ideas, with more copy and paste ready-done campaigns than the 2013 Cash Flow Calendar.
We are officially half-way through the year and I have a Summer Splash Bubble Blow Out for you.
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Here’s how to make the most money and have the most fun
this summer in your business…
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
1) Create stories you can use in your marketing. Whether its your family fun you experience (getting one of my clients a 19% response rate from a COLD LIST – one who had never heard of him before). Take the summer to practice your story selling techniques, and use stories
intertwined with marketing messages for compelling promotions that improve your cash flow and build your list of prospects and buyers.
My Story Selling course helps you do that, and it USUALLY sells for $97.
I am offering you a way to dramatically improve your marketing results leveraging simple stories you create.
This course walks you through my process of finding stories – leveraging stories – and using stories to help your business.
From there, you can use your cash flow to help others in need (like I am doing with this to help out the flood victims in Alberta here).
2) Use your newfound story selling skills in combination with the 2013 Cash Flow Calendar and become a marketing machine!
You’ll be cranking out blog posts, articles, promotions, sales pages and emails like a seasoned pro.
Any day you need an idea or two for marketing – pull up the calendar, flip to the day or week you need help with and *voila* you have all the ideas you need, along with some pre-written marketing pieces you can use word-for-word.
The 2013 Cash Flow Calendar is sold online for $87 right now (with the odd short-term discount here and there).
Now, COMBINE the Story Selling Course and the 2013 Cash Flow Calendar and you have a wicked good system for growing your business this summer.
What would usually be a slower time of year, instantly becomes a busier and more profitable time of year.
More profits means more fun!
So instead of the $184 investment for the 2 training programs, I am offering a Summer Splash Bubble Blow Out for the 2 of them for just $92…
PLUS, 50% of all proceeds will go to the Red Cross Flood Fund for all those families who lost their homes in the past week here in Alberta.
Again, if you want BOTH the Story Selling Program and the Cash Flow Calendar for $92 – a 50% discount – and a large percentage of proceeds go to the Red Cross to help Flood Victims: the use this link (I will personally send you an email with information and some surprise bonuses too)
Or, if you want just the Story Selling Program at half off for $49, then use this link (…again, I will personally send you an email with information and some surprise bonuses too)
Have some fun this summer, and if you are near Calgary and can help out those in need, please do. This email is one of the ways I am helping and I will update you on what is happening with the cleanup here for families in turmoil.
PS: One other quick, simple, and free request.
As I said earlier, my daughters are finished grade 7 as of today.
They have created a special love of making fun and goofy youtube videos of them being dorks with their friends.
Could you like this video? http://youtu.be/ZJoTe02Nhp0
They don’t know I am doing this but I would like to help them get more likes.
It’s AMAZING what kids can do now with a simple Smart phone and a video app – have a look and please like their video (THEY LOVE SEEING PEOPLE LIKE THEIR VIDS!!!) http://youtu.be/ZJoTe02Nhp0
