Tina Dietz – Marketing For People Who Don’t Like To Market

…But Like The Sound Of Their Voice

dietzDo you love working with your clients but you don’t want to endlessly push and promote people into buying your stuff?

International business expert and bestselling author Tina Dietz MS, NCC is going to join us from her home in Costa Rica to show you how to use your authentic voice (even if you’re an introvert) to effectively get your message out, build your tribe, and bring clients and customers to your door while keeping your sanity.

This is a one hour master class-be prepared to take notes and get ready to get your questions answered!

You’ve got expertise, you’re great at what you do, you love serving your clients, and YOU. DON’T. ENJOY. MARKETING. Maybe you’re uncomfortable with “selling yourself” (which definitely doesn’t sound fun anyway), maybe you’re not sure where to start, or perhaps you’re juggling a gazillion different things and you’re too damn busy.

Tina will show you how all the marketing content you could ever need to effectively get your message out, build your tribe, and bring clients and customers to your door is within you. **and how to get it out of your head where it’s going to do some good, pleaseandthankyou

You’ll learn how to create everything you need without spending tons of time and wracking your brain-social media posts, articles, newsletters, teleclasses, webinars-even information products for additional streams of income.

We’re also going to demystify the world of outsourcing and make it easier for you to take steps so that you don’t have to go it alone or break the bank.

This is NOT about ‘magic bullets’ or ‘formulas’ or ‘secrets.’ This is solid business training that you’re actually going to be able to implement regardless of what industry you’re in.

Oh, and this isn’t about using other people’s content either because nobody is you-er than YOU and that’s a good thing!

This session is especially useful if you’re a solo entrepreneur or partnership and you don’t love marketing and want to grow your business in the most authentic, effective, and fastest way possible.

Tea and chocolate consumption while taking notes during this class is optional, but encouraged.

Susan Gilbert – How to Create a Wikipedia Page

Noteability is the Word of the Day

susan-gilbertWHY WIKIPEDIA? FOR “PAGE ONE” EXPOSURE!

If you want more recognition and influence in today’s online oriented world, a Wikipedia article may be your ticket to greater exposure.

Wikipedia is a culture unto itself with no one management source that oversees what sticks and what gets deleted.  We will cover what some of those pitfalls are; and, why having a Wikipedia page is worth the effort if you have the right qualifications.

[info]Read more about the value of being found on Wikipedia in Susan’s article at Social Buzz Club. Click here.[/info]

Learn the top four reasons for having a Wikipedia Page:

  1. Great exposure. Wikipedia is a high-traffic website and is the first stop for most Internet searchers.
  2. Reputation management. Your Wikipedia article will likely land on “page one” of an Internet search – elevating your reputation to top position in viewers’ eyes.
  3. Increased trust. When your name pops up on Wikipedia, you have gained instant credibility and trust – a third party article about you has merited inclusion on this public information resource.
  4. Fact-based coverage. Wikipedia pages are devoid of opinion or marketing hyperbole and are widely considered to be an “encyclopedia” of factual information. This is good for you – your essential information is not cloaked in propaganda.

And, last but not least, if you are interested in elevating your Klout Score, a Wikipedia page will do that as well.

Media Relations has changed dramatically over the last 5 years, shifting from a small majority of companies having major influence and authority to more of a distributed influencer network of bloggers, corporations, and citizen journalists.

So what channels are working?  How are new media professionals succeeding?

In this presentation, Barbra will lay the framework for how to identify, nourish, and connect with the people and communities that you will need to create highly customized, interconnected webs of earned, and paid, content partners to leverage your content.
