Survey Says…

Two months ago I posted a survey here and asked y’all to complete the survey and earn some free tips.

For those of you who didn’t see it, the survey was about training and how people would like to receive training, and many other questions concerning it. Along with a friend of mine, Renee Scherer of Presentations Plus, I did my first webinar earlier this year, which you see the advertisement for there in the second spot at the top left. We plan on doing more, and each of us has certain talents that we give presentations on, as well as a couple of shared things.

For instance, Renee gives presentations on anything Microsoft Office related. She recently gave one to an organization on Microsoft Office tips, and I’ll be giving one to that same group in either April or May on social media.

My topics are a bit more broad because I’m all over the place, as you know. I’m not going to start spouting them all here again, but if you want to just take a look at my one business website and then my other business website to see some of what I do.

Anyway, something that doesn’t happen all that often when someone does a big survey is that they don’t share any of the results of the survey. Y’all know me; I’m all about sharing, thus Renee and I are sharing the results of the survey with you, which I found very interesting overall. And, if you put your name and email in at the bottom to get on our mailing list, you’ll receive two free little gifts for your trouble. Hey, it’s the holiday season, right? Just so you know, the mailing list will be private and protected, and will only be used whenever we’re doing a webinar or seminar of some type, and then to mention the product created from that process. Otherwise, you’ll never hear from us; that’s my guarantee.

By the way, y’all know how I’m always trying to get more publicity. Well, this time around, I’m in a magazine article, the first one quoted, and I even got my picture in it, though it’s in black and white; hey, you take what you can get. If you’re interested, I turned it into a pdf and you can download it. The story is called Webinar Anyone? Enjoy that as well.

And remember, if your group or organization needs a speaker on any of the topics in the survey, and pays, reach out to me; will speak for pay! 😉

34 Questions

The other day I asked whether we could consider ourselves good marketers if we couldn’t get our friends and family to sign up for our stuff, or to subscribe to our blogs and the like. Tonight, I’m going to be somewhat thankful that most of them don’t subscribe.

Many of us don’t dare take the opportunity to answer questions about ourselves to begin with, let alone in person. Our friend John has been doing a series of questions that he’s been answering on his blog John Dilbeck & Friends over the past few weeks, and I’ve been examining myself along with him.

Tonight, I learned about a blog from Kristi’s Fetching Friday post on her Kikolani blog that had posted 33 Questions that actually turned out to be 34 questions, a blog called Dragosroua. I decided to go ahead and answer these questions based on how I’m feeling at the present moment after a pretty good Friday; honesty is my thing, even as it pertains to myself.

I doubt many folks will want to try this one, but hey, I have no fear:

A Training Survey

I’d like to ask y’all for a favor.

You remember when I talked about the process of doing a webinar, then how I put the completed webinar up for sale, which you can also see there on the left in the second spot.

Well, my friend Renee of Presentations Plus, with whom I did the webinar with, and I want to do more of the same thing. Or live presentations. Or podcasts. That’s kind of the thing. We actually want to know what people like in general terms. We know that if people are long distance and want to participate that if they still wanted to participate in something that a live, in person presentation, wouldn’t work as a choice. That’s not quite what we’re looking for, though.

What we’d like is to know what people think in general when it comes to presentations. So, we’ve put together a survey, which you can access here, that has all sorts of choices on 5 different topics that we’d like to get out to the masses to see what and how people think in general about the types of things we have to offer. I’d love it if you could take the time to answer the survey honestly for us.

And, of course, we understand there should be some kind of benefit to people who do the seminar. So, we’ve included three PDF files that you can download after you do the survey. One is a Word tip, another is an Excel tip, and the third, mainly for people who don’t have websites, but have businesses, is an outline showing both the pros and cons of having a website. They’re free just for doing the survey.

Thanks; and now, back to our previously scheduled program, already in progress.
