As you know from my last post, I was an instructor at NAMS (Novice To Advanced Marketing Systems) in Atlanta this past August. It was the fulfillment of a dream and proves you’re never too old. (That’s me in the photo)
I also took away some great marketing tips from the other sessions, including the following:
- keep a journal with your best ideas and give it as a bonus to people who purchase your course
- write down three people who really inspire you and why. We are a mirror of what we appreciate in others
- the solution to Too Busy is to say ‘yes’ to those things you are committed to and are passionate about, ask for help, and don’t say ‘yes’ to everything
- what really works now as far as online marketing is to do product review webinars (and I can help with those – use my contact form and let’s get started)
- before a webinar, give people a 5 minute video or a PDF in return for their email. Then even if they decide against the webinar, you’ve given them something of value and can continue to connect with them
- make a list of all the things you can monetize, such as email or a page on your website, and do one of those tasks each day
- great keywords to use on a sales page include: how to, learn, make, start, remove, stop, get rid of
- check Yahoo Answers or specialty forums to see the kinds of questions your market is asking
- one of the best survey subject lines is “I need your help”
- podcasts allow you to have a conversation with people no matter where they are and can be circulated on iTunes
- Pinterest and Youtube send a lot of traffic to local businesses
- COI stands for cost of inaction – how much money are you losing monthly because of your inaction?
- study what Amazon does for their sales
- old school direct mail is still very important
- be the client you would like to have. For example, if you want clients who value training and are willing to pay for it, be that kind of person yourself.
I had all kinds of other points in my notes, but too many to share here. The best action is to purchase your own copy of all the videos from NAMS. Yes, it’s been held twelve times, and I’ve travelled to Atlanta for all but the first one. That’s how much I value the instructors and the training.
