Determining A Scam Through Math

I’m often receiving links from someone I know. This time it was to have an opportunity to listen to a webinar that was broadcast earlier in the year if I happened to sign up on a particular website by 11AM the next day. It proposed teaching us how to make 6-figures within 90 days doing online marketing.

My scam meter was up as it usually is, but it was free so I figured what the hey. I might pick up a thing or two that I hadn’t yet tried before, right? So, around 4 minutes before 11 I went to the site, put in my first name and email address (throwaway email address), and waited for the link to the webinar, which came about 5 minutes later.

Buy Me A Coffee/Pizza

Whether you’re a new or regular visitor, unless you’re looking at the mobile speed version of this article or my blog overall, you’ll probably notice the little hovering ball at the bottom right. If you need to see it bigger, check this out:

Buy Me A Coffee/Pizza

This is the main logo for a content subscription site called Buy Me A Coffee. What it allows you to do is put a link you create on their website, then share it in other places. If people like your content and want to show their love financially, all they have to do is click on the logo and get transported to your profile page where they’ll have different dollar amounts they can select from to show their appreciation. Isn’t that cool?

How Far Will You Go To Brand Yourself?

Years ago I went to a presentation which was the beginning of a local interview series with successful entrepreneurs in my area. The first guy on the list is a millionaire many times over, but he’s done it the unconventional way.

branding is important

Me & Art Zimmer

His name is Art Zimmer (I’ve used his picture before lol), and in his lifetime he’s owned maybe 20 or so businesses. At one time he owned 12 at once, then got down to “only” 4 before he decided it was time to retire and enjoy the rest of his life in a bit more luxury.

LinkedIn; Posts Not Articles, Part Two

I’ve done a good bit of experimenting on LinkedIn over the past few years. In 2015 I wrote an article titled Writing Articles That Gain Attention On LinkedIn, after I’d started posting full articles there. Some were brand new; some were edited pieces of older blog posts, mainly from my business blog.

business marketing lol

It started out well, and I thought it was the panacea I was looking for to help me breakthrough the noise, to draw more attention to what I could do for my particular business audience. Then… it wasn’t anymore. I went from thousands of views to ten’s of views, and I decided it was over when the last article I put there got 21 views; I do better than that leaving everything on my blogs.

How Far Are You Willing To Promote Yourself And/Or Your Business?

A friend of mine, who was a relationship coach, once wrote a blog post titled What Kind Of Attention Do You Want. Her basic lament was how anyone could go onto a site such as Facebook, see relatively young girls barely dressed, and wondered if the ladies who put those pictures of themselves on the site really wanted others to think of them in that way. These days the same can be said for Instagram; I’m beyond being shocked after all these years.

There’s been a lot of stories over the course of time where both men and women are losing jobs or opportunities because more companies are hiring someone whose responsibility is to go online and look for information on these applicants. They’re going to social media sites, not liking what they see, and turning down those applicants. Sometimes they tell them what they found, knowing they can’t get into trouble for either not hiring someone or letting them go because the company doesn’t want to be associated with what’s being represented.
