Step Six To Proving You Are An Expert -Using The Interview

 

           Use the experience of the interview or speaking event discussed in the last two posts and talk about it. Explain the preparation you did before hand, the details of the interview, what questions were asked that didn’t make it into the final cut.

            You may even realize that some of your answers were not as clear as you like to you can provide more information and details.

           If the interview is posted online anywhere link to it in your blog. You also want to post a comment under the interview thanking the publication for the experience and linking to your blog for more details.

           Previously I have done some interviews with a local newspaper  (Anniston Star) and a national trade publication (Planet Laundry). I have also provided comments for other articles and even did a phone interview for an internet based phone service.

       I have used these in Linkedin and on my websites as well.

Step Five To Proving You Are An Expert- The Interview

Step Five To Proving You Are An Expert- The Interview 

 

            I continue my series about proving you are an expert in your area, industry or profession.

            A great way to get exposure is by doing an interview. Normally people think about an interview as an article for a paper or television. While they are great places and may be available there are also numerous others.

           Does your local High School have a newspaper? Maybe you could offer to be interviewed by one of the students.  Smaller AM radio stations have local interest spots, or weekend programming that they may be looking to fill.

           Something as simple as a local coupon book, these books are widely distributed for free and, like all marketing, need to be seen. A small article in the book may help get the pages opened and offer an idea to the company offering the coupon book an idea they never thought of.

           Open up your thinking of how you can be interviewed whether on a local or national scale.

Facebook And The Post Office

 Facebook And The Post Office
Facebook is a large corporation that runs a worldwide network of the most social, interactive communication method since the letter was first delivered by the postal service.
Think about that for a few minutes. Over 100 years ago a system was developed that would allow anyone from kids to grandparents to write a letter and send it to someone else. All it took was a bit of time, a pen, pencil or crayon, a piece of paper, an envelope and a stamp.

             The letter, with the right address, could be sent anywhere in world, to anyone. The price was small for the ability to send information so far.

              Since that time there have been many changes in communication methods. Many have been one-way such as radio and television; some have been two-way as in the telegraph and telephone.

              Email made a big change that allowed people to transmit information and became the replacement for snail mail. Then came the big step. The ability for anyone to send information to someone specific or a group of people, allow them to read it on their own time and reply or send it to others. All for free.

             So you may wonder how does Facebook make money?

            Many of us have heard terms like Data Mining and never really understood how it relates to making money.

            The picture attached is a prime example. I bought a new grill from Home Depot. It had some damage that I could easily repair (possible better than the original factory design) and they wanted it gone. It was last year’s model and the last one in the store.

 

            I took the grill home and posted a picture on Instagram and Facebook with some details of my new grill and the awesome deal I got.

            After I received a comment on the post I went back into Facebook to take a look and there at the bottom of the page was a link to a Home Depot site where I could buy a Natural Gas Conversion Kit for my brand new grill.

             Now I’m not sure if Facebook actually knows that I have gas at the house but I’m willing to bet there is some correlation between my address, picture post location, the gas company and Facebook.

             At the end of the day Facebook didn’t put the link to Home Depot on the page because they thought it would be a nice thing to do.

              I’m not complaining as I use some of the same info in my own marketing on Facebook it’s just awesome to know that it works so fast and is right there in my face.

            Maybe the post office should offer free shipping and postage and print advertising based on businesses near the address of the person receiving the letter?

              And yes, my Natural Gas Conversion kit has been ordered and is on the way. I also bought a cover while I was there.

Sale Ads Laundry and Dry Cleaners

Sale Ads  Laundry and Dry Cleaners  

 

 

In the Laundromat business, as with any business, you will receive emails, flyers and magazines from suppliers offering sales and other products.

             My business is Self Serve Laundromats and Drop Off, Wash Dry Fold Services. I currently do not offer Dry Cleaning or alterations as my volume was too low.

          One sale flier I received by email made me laugh. If you need a Knit Picker I know where you can get a deal.

Why Did Gmail Go Down And Who Takes Responsibility

Why Did Gmail Go Down And Who Takes Responsibility

I noticed a comment on Gmail that the download was not checked for viruses due the the Gmail virus protection being down

At around 2 p.m. EST, Google’s email service became largely inaccessible, as confirmed by the website Down For Everyone Or Just Me. But you probably already know that if you’ve been checking Twitter.

Update: Users are now reporting that Gmail service at least is back for some, though recurring outages and slowness are also being reported. At this stage it appears that some have service restored while others 

Google calls this a “disruption” in its Gmail service according to the Apps Status Dashboard, and promises “more information shortly.” After approximately 20 minutes the service briefly came back online for most users, but then went down again. After just under an hour, it once again seemed to be restored and stable for users previously complaining about connectivity.

Step Three To Proving You Are An Expert

Step Three To Proving You Are An Expert

   In the third part of this series I talk about another method to build your reputation in a particular field.  Up to this point we have discussed blogging and how it is an important method to record your information. This could be in pictures, video or written word.
       Now that you have some experience and are comfortable, unless of course you have already been doing this and are looking to move forward, you will want to offer to write a guest post for another blogger. Search out someone in your field that has a large following of people and simple ask. Send them a link to you blog so they can see your work and give them an idea of a topic you would like to cover.

      It’s a great way to get exposed to a larger audience of like minded people.
So go and search out some of the people in your field of expertise and ask. It never hurts to ask. If they say no, ask for the reason and it will help you build for a future request.

How To Use Your Empower Network Blog For Any Product

 

           How To Use Your Empower Network Blog For Any Product Or Service.

It’s easy and simple to setup your blog and customize it for you and your Product Or Service.

     Are you trying to market a product or service and sending your potential customers to Joe.Smith.BuyMyProduct.com.

      Is this link providing any information to the consumer or did you hand this out at a party in your livingroom? 

      One of the questions I keep getting is how can I use this for my business. You want to have a place where it’s easy to get information to your current and future customers. Updating a website is a headache and most only get changed a couple of times a year. Facebook is a good tool but they are constantly changing the programming and unless your customers comment, share or like you posts on a constant basis you fall off their wall.

      Using a blog allows you to put you information in one place, share the information on Facebook, Google+, Pinterest and other locations.

       You can also share the link in an email to people on your list.

          It’s easy for anyone to search through your blog by categories you set up or with a search bar.

And if you want to sell products on your blog with links or reviews there are no restrictions.

As you can see in the video I show you how to add blogs so you can use a separate website and blog for any Product or Service.

I am no expert at HTML or Web Developer or any other hide in your mom’s basement programming lauguage. I don’t want to deal with that. I want to be able to shoot a video, upload it, add a link and some comments and send it out.

Provide content for free and people with want to buy from you. Stop trying to sell.

All for $25 a month
