When I was a kid… I remember getting excited every day for a program on TV. You may (or may not be ) old enough to remember a kids TV show called “Romper Room”. In this show, they taught life lessons and today I want to share how that has affected my ideas around content marketing today.
At the end of the show, the host (Miss Mary, or Nancy, or so on), would pull out her “Magic Mirror” a hand mirror with the mirror removed so you could see her face through the TV camera. She would say… “I can see Cathy and Jesse and Julie and Jimmy and Kelly and Billie and Bobby and Jenny and Mark” and so on. I would watch every day hoping she would say “I see Brian!”

Why is it better to build a pile of needles versus finding a needle in a haystack? Because the needles are what you use to sow (sew) new business. Yet still, people spend way more time trying to find that needle.
Advertising is typically putting your message out to a large audience and hopes it attracts the right customers at the right time. Marketers try the same concept with email lists. They collect names, but are they the right names and emails at the right time?
The difference is a pile of needles is a group of very targeted customers or influencers who help you focus on getting to your goals faster and better.
Busy business people like contractors, don’t have the time to build relationships like full-time salespeople, but through finding and working with influencers, they can amplify their messages if they simply invest time in specific relationships!

Hashtags have different clout and influence on difference social media platforms:Details

Have you noticed that social media is becoming more and more divisive lately? Something as simple and fictional as a mermaid is causing people lose their minds, get in fights, and spew hate, vitriol, and disdain.
I have been trying to be more positive on social media, posting fun stuff, positive quotes, and real life stories of overcoming life’s obstacles. The amount of engagement has been outstanding and encouraging, and people love to share and be engaged and conversational around positive topics.
In this podcast I am going to lay out the Seven Deadly Sins of social media posting, and what I consider to be the antithesis to eachDetails
