Comment Polls vs. Checkbox Polls on Facebook or Twitter - 100

Comment Polls vs. Checkbox Polls on Facebook or Twitter - 100

If you've ever been a part of a Facebook group, you've probably seen someone post a Poll, usually asking questions like...

Who should I host my podcast with? Polls are great if you really are looking for people to vote on the answers, and you want to be able to quickly know the results and find a winner, or a trend, at the end.

Unfortunately, neither Facebook or Twitter consider those check-box marking action as "engagement" - at least not enough to give your post any kind of a boost in the algorithm.

This is so DOPE - Ep #83

The name of my new course is DOPE: Do Once, Publish Everywhere -

So why is it important to publish your content on multiple platforms? The biggest issue facing every digital marketer and content creator today, is getting their message out in front of the biggest possible targeted audience.

So if you don't already have a massive email list, or you're not already a celebrity and don't have a huge following on Instagram, or Facebook, how do you build an audience from scratch?

SocialPosts.txt - Ep #73

It would be such a waste if you’re not keeping an archive of all this barrage of content you’re generating for your audience, fans, followers and customers.

And that’s why, I recommend that you create a text file on your computer - I call it Social

And then, on a daily basis, every time you write any piece of content for any platform, just copy and paste into this file. And I always post the latest content at the top, just so you know.

How to Build an Audience From Scratch - Ep #71

Probably the single biggest burning question today on every single entrepreneur and creator's mind. Building an audience from scratch is one of the hardest things to do, whether you have an existing business that's trying to enter a new market, or you're a brand new entrepreneur who's building a following for the very first time. That's why it is easier to keep creating new products & services for your existing audience, than to keep going into new markets and trying to build an audience from scratch.

When To Say Yes - Ep #62

So say "YES" to more things when you're younger. And if you have a younger one in your life, be sure to make them listen to this episode. And some day, you have go to say "NO" to more things, so that you can excel at the few things that you've already said "YES" to. And if you're not sure what to say yes to, and what to say no to, check out my Royalties-based coaching & mentoring program where I will coach you for free, in exchange for royalties from future sales.

How to Become an Overnight Success - Ep #58

How to Become an Overnight Success - Ep #58

There are literally thousands upon thousands of quotes from accomplished people all over the world, who have talked about how they became an overnight success, and here are a few.

Notice a pattern here?

Yeah. Every "overnight success" story actually took many many years to create :-)

I started selling online in 1997. That's 21 years ago. And I still don't feel like I have arrived.

So don't compare your first step with someone who has already walked a thousand miles and get discouraged.
