Grab my free guide: The 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine

“Daily, consistent, focused, faithful expectation raises the miracle power of achieving your dreams.”

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

 

Yesterday we discussed the importance of continually learning.  You need to read and keep yourself informed of happenings and trends in your industry…

But

More Important you must share this information.

That seems easier said versus actually doing.  Here’s why…

YOU’RE BUSY!

There’s nothing wrong with that… you are running a business. Who on earth has the time to write content (or speak or video).

Well, you need to find a way.  Because, that consistent communication is VITAL to the success of your Infinity Marketing  Machine.

Now… Here’s an idea.

Think of your content as programming.

What aspect of your business do you enjoy talking about that you can create a weekly “show” about?  And by show I mean post.

Look at what I do… I celebrate the 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine.  Monday is Subject Matter Expert, Tuesday is Content and Consistency, Wednesday is Midweek Motivation, Thursday is Infinity Customer, Friday is Big Money, Saturday is Try This, and Sunday is the Week in Review.

That’s it.  I know, on each day of the week, my general topic.

That takes a whole bunch of stress out of my content creation.  I look at my blog as programming.

For you… do a week in review, have a customer highlight, and that leaves 5 more.  Just think about what you can discuss on a weekly basis!  This will give your readers an inside connection to who you are and what your business is all about.

It makes you appear organized, knowledgeable, and gives you the expert status you desire!

Today… come up with your content “programming” – you’ll be happy you did!

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 513 – Why Does Reading Builds Your Subject Matter Expert Status?

Grab my free guide: The 5 C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine

“Read more, learn more, invest in yourself.”

Monday: Subject Matter Expert

The first “C” of the Infinity Marketing Machine is designed to build your credibility with your customers.  Our goal is to turn customers into a tribe that knows, likes, and trusts you.

It’s an important “C” that is often overlooked.  But, just like a face to face encounter can leave you a tad uneasy if you sense something is shady about the person you talk to… so too can a visit to your website if the person, business, or product seems shady.

The way to less “shady” yourself is to promote the things that make you reputable!

Often this is honors, awards, education, titles… but sometimes it’s as simple as sharing your knowledge.

Today’s inspiration goes miles for building your Subject Matter Expertise.  You must be willing to invest in yourself… this can be as simple as reading trade magazines.  However, it should not be a chore… if it is a chore, you may possibly be in the wrong industry.

Reading is the first aspect… writing and speaking is the next.  You must share your knowledge.

This can be in the form of your blog posts, posts on Facebook, pages on your website, or even the descriptions of your products and services.

There are many ways your expertise is highlighted.  This is why it’s so important to stay current with the latest trends and information.

So the next time someone remarks on how you’re reading a magazine… just tell them you’re building your subject matter expertise!   It’s true… keep current.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 511 – Water the Fake Plants to Grow Real Cash.

“My fake plants died because I did not pretend to water them.”~ Mitch Hedberg

Friday: Big Money Small Change

Let’s take a look at a post I saw online this past summer.

It’s celebrating National Ice Cream Day and it’s a cookie store.  Does the store sell ice cream?  Nope.

Just in case you don’t think you can make money promoting a “National Day Of…” that does not relate directly to your business… look at this

 

As you get more creative with your post think of this one… I love this company. The gal is an artist with frosting.  Look at how adorable these cookies are!  They taste yummie too.

But they don’t sell ice cream.  However, looking at the photo, you see just how creative they are with their marketing.

Here’s a challenge:

Today is National Indiana day… that should be easy for some of you in Indiana… or that have customers from Indiana.

Today is also National Fast Food — that might be a little more difficult… but imagine if you can see a fast food place out the window from your desk?  It’s OK to wish them a Happy Fast Food Day.  Even exercise facilities have “cheat days”!

I’ve got to tell you, Monday is National Carbonated Beverage with Caffeine Day!  YES… I’ll celebrate that one!  But maybe you have a soda machine you visit… it’s OK to make a silly post to just show you’re human.

What I’m trying to say is don’t let your fake plants die because you haven’t pretend watered them.  Let your tribe celebrate with you!  Sometimes silly works.  (PS:  From the dork files… when I was a kid, my parents went out of town and left me the job of watering the plants, hummm much to my surprise, many were fake!  Still watered them… oops)

So don’t actually water fake plants, but doing small things like showing your “behind the scenes” will pay off via loyalty with your tribe.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode #510 – Your Tribe Is Your Best Sales Team.

“Your client satisfaction is a direct reflection of your client experience.”

Thursday: Infinity Customers

You’ve heard this before, but I’m going to use it as the topic for today.  Collect reviews.

Our marina just “iced over” last Saturday, that means the lake froze.  So it’s kind of a depressing 6 months until the ice melts.  Well… depressing if you hate snow, cold, frozen, everything!  Those that like winter are pretty excited.

They are odd. 🙂

We are often asked, “what do you do at a marina in the winter?” Well… we’re actually really busy.  We are wrapping up the season by making sure that the boats are winterized… but the fun thing is that we are gearing up for summer!

This starts in January (haha) well, it kind of does, the Boat Show is in January and that gets people excited for the upcoming season.  And that’s what we’re doing right now. We’re getting some of our promotional materials ready to go!

Last year we used Shutterfly to make a very nice picture book.  So there’s tip one for today, make a photo book!  It’s a great way to have something for people to flip through at a trade show.

However, last week we had a fun idea.

Let’s see if we can get a Testimonial from someone… anyone.  Today we started reading the words of our customers.

OH MY.  It’s is really fun to read the wonderful things they have said about our staff, services, and facilities.

I’m going to highly recommend this!  This is the first “real” time we’ve ever tried to get testimonials… In addition to words, the customers have submitted photos.  It’s making this book come to life!

Sure, it’s nice to see photos of the boats.  But, when you read the customers stories and see their photos, wow. We are so thankful that they took the time to share these wonderful memories.

So that’s tip two… actively seek the help of your current customers, which should be your tribe, to help you explain the benefit of your offerings.

Be specific.  Know what you are looking for before you ask.

If you are collecting information for a specific product/service, ask the customers with the most first hand knowledge.  Send them an email or pick up the phone and call them. But do not do a generic or blanket request.  You are asking for targeted information and help. Your tribe will help, but be specific and grateful.

You will love the results.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode #508 – Recycle the Sunset… or Is It a Sunrise?

“books always speak of other books, and every story tells a story that has already been told.” Umberto Eco

When you create content, just remember… the sun will rise and the sun will set every day… yet, each day is different.  So while the story can be about the sunrise, there’s always something different to talk about.

While I had the sunrise on my mind… I pulled up the photo for today’s inspiration and noticed that if you type sunrise in the search, then you do another search and type sunset, they exact same photos come up.

So look at the photo… do you think it’s a sunset or sunrise?  I’m guessing your answer probably has some deep seeded psychological “tell” but it proves a point.  You can have the same story from many angles… OR… as you are trying to create valuable content… why not create a “best of” list, guide, or book for your tribe!

I did last night.

This was a fun project that I put together to explain the 5C’s of the Infinity Marketing Machine.  I call it #doinginfinity.  Sign up and I’ll email you a FREE download.

It will give you an idea of how to take different posts and repackage!  AND it will be a great reminder for how to improve your tribe building effort at your business.

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 502 – Achilles Tendons, Corn on the Cob, and Guns and Roses.

“Patience, persistence and perspiration make an unbeatable combination for success.” Napoleon Hill

Tuesday: Content and Consistency

Yesterday I talked about how I hate running… today I’m going to talk about perspiration.  Hummm…. I subliminally must want to work out.  You see, I’ve had a problem with my Achilles tendon for over 18 months.   Here’s the problem, it hurts, I do the exercises, it feels better, then I stop.  Then it hurts, I do the exercises, it feels better, then I stop.  This goes on and on.

The good news is… I’m consistent!

Here’s the scoop  about what my painful Achilles, it should teach us that we need PATIENCE.

My plan for the past 6 weeks has been to do the exercises whether I “think” I need them or not.  I’m not perfect at it… but I’ve been much more consistent.  And being the stubborn person I am, I hate to admit it, the exercises do work.

Whew. I got through that!

How does this relate to content creation and your Infinity Marketing Machine?  You need to be patient, persistent, and put the work in… you might not sweat, but this does take consistent effort.  However, patience is the part we forget to put in the mix.

Patience is needed when you feel like you’re creating a post and you get one “like” OR even zero “likes”.  Patience is needed when you create a magnificent and informative passion page for your website and no one reads it that day.  Patience is needed when you create an email with an “buy now” offer and no one buys anything!  Ugh.

The reason this needs patience is you cannot quit. You can adjust and modify.  But don’t quit.

Remember, one part of content creation and content marketing is your new role as a farmer. You plant your articles and in the future your traffic will grow.  No one would put a seed in the ground and expect an ear of corn at the end of the day.  However, if you plant the seed, by the time August rolls around you’re eating corn on the cob!

Traffic has the same effect.  Create the article and later you’ll receive traffic.

Patience. We all need patience.  I feel a Guns and Roses song approaching.

hahaha

ProfitCenterCoach.com – Episode 500 – Help Someone Find You

“The moon is the first milestone on the road of the stars.” Arthur C Clarke

Saturday: Try This!

Which way are you coming from?

There used to be a time when people would call and ask for directions.  This relied on your staff having to give directions and your customer having to understand the directions.

NOW… “Hey Siri” or a Search gets you where you need to go.  I thought driving was the main source of automated directions, until I saw the new directories at the Mall of America.

Not only do you see where the store is… it has an animated arrow to guide you!

img_5123

It might be impossible to give your customers a guided arrow, however, what can you give them?  Bring someone with you, jump in your car, and film the journey from the main highway to your business.  Get out of the car and film the walk from car, to elevator, to front desk.

Prospective customers will appreciate this!

They are used to Google or Siri… but they can’t be everywhere (yet) – so help your customers find you!  Film the journey.  We did this at the boat yard… super helpful for first time visitors.

Try This!
