Jax Report ava live radio

{JAX REPORT} Episode 1 :: Latest Update & What Inspires You?

Thanks for joining me this morning for the Jax Report where we share a cup of coffee and talk about things like new artists, branding and marketing tips, hot topics from our social media pages, and a little inspiration to start your day.

Tweeted this morning Lily Karlin huffingtonpost :Jennifer Aniston Speaks Out Against Botox, Reveals An Even Larger Cultural Problem.
Jennifer Aniston’s comment on how our society is expected to fight aging to the point of extremes. I agree that we should try to take care in our appearance to look our best but I do think that embracing your most natural look is better for your self confidence. I’ve seen both men and woman put so much stuff in their faces that they look unnatural and masked yet still feel insecure. It’s like a trap and becomes an obsession.

I still love Dr Shino Bay Aguilera’s preventative approach to anti-aging.

5) Today’s question of the day has already been posted on our web site:
Question: In today’s world of hurdles, how do you keep the artist inside alive and inspired? http://avaliveradio.wordpress.com/2014/07/20/artists-corner-in-todays-world-of-hurdles-how-do-you-keep-the-artist-inside-alive-and-inspired/

Inspiration is a fickle mistress. When she’s with you, all is good in the world. But when she disappears it can be frustrating and even scary at times. As a working artist, I have found myself uninspired many times. But when it prevents me from getting important things done, it can be a real issue. Over the years I’ve learned that it’s very important to know myself and discover what motivates me so I can keep my creative juices flowing.

Join in the conversation on .. What inspires you?
I’d love to hear from you.

Let me leave you with some Inspiration of the day from:
Jacqueline Kawarsky facebook “The true definition of a fighter is someone who doesn’t give up when circumstances get tough”.

I totally agree, for those of you who feel that life’s got you beat right now, remember that life lessons are to educate you and hopefully make you a more compassionate human. You only know how strong you are once challenged, so get through it and pay it forward. I promise you that you are only sent what you can handle.

Leave me a question for tomorrow’s show below or tweet me @jacquelineJax #JAXDAILY @AVALIVERADIO

Think about what benefits your Brand
How do we improve passion behind our brand: Avoiding a break in the chain.

The passion of the company founders for their brand is typically transferred to their employees and thus the customer. This energy must be transferred daily through each persons actions and constancy. But with that said, if any person in that company chain isn’t carrying the energy forward, that will cause a break in the chain. I will go through more on this in later discussions, but first here are 3 initial steps to building a stronger brand awareness.

Changing the Game of Music with Preston Sullivan of Royalty Exchange

AVA_Live_radio_Preston_Sullivan_Game_Changer_Royalty_ExchangeListen in Now: www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2014/04/22/changing-the-game-of-music-with-preston-sullivan-from-royalty-exchange

Join host Jacqueline Jax as she talks with VP East Coast Sales Royalty Exchange, Preston Sullivan, about the future of music royalty’s and how he’s changing the game. Royalty Exchange is the world’s first market place for buying and selling royalties on a safe and efficient platform. Many thanks to @Preston Sullivan for coming on our show to talk about the company and the future of new artists royalties. Including the importance of registering your songs correctly to build up your royalty values from air play and sales performance over time.

A serial entrepreneur, Preston Sullivan has amassed over 35 years in the business of music and technology. Since graduating from Vanderbilt University in 1977 (Preston was a member of the 1974 Peach Bowl team), he started and ran successful ventures from LA to Nashville. Though a popular entertainer, singer and sax player on the west coast, Sullivan decided to move back to his beloved city of Nashville from Los Angeles and made the transition from artist to music executive in the years that followed. He built and launched companies such as college rock label Carlyle Records with offices in Nashville and Amsterdam, Preston Sullivan Music, ASCAP and Surespin Songs BMI with current copyrights associated with Universal Music Publishing and Cal IV Music. He was in-house producer and studio manager for Sixteenth Avenue Sound whose world renowned clients recorded over 80 platinum and gold records. In 1997 Sullivan jumped into the technology sector and co-founded the successful dotcom Tappedinto.com later called Streamlogics, a pioneer in webcasting and the streaming video business. Sullivan helped lead the company in global sales that resulted in a profitable sale in 2009 to Thomson Reuters.

Sales-Brochure-FrontNow VP of East Coast Sales with Royalty Exchange: Founded in 2011, Royalty Exchange started after identifying the need for a centralized marketplace where royalty owners could monetize their royalties and investors seeking to purchase alternative assets could invest in them. Our mission is simply to provide a platform where all types of royalty assets, such as music, television and film or patents, intellectual property, and mineral rights, can be bought or sold in an effort to bring value to both the investor and seller.

spring-runway-fashion-2014Learn how to choose a Spring wardrobe that will last more than 1 season.Little black dresses addDiscover the secrets to selecting dresses for your body type.

Highlights: Jax Report Spring Style

DIY FAShion Projects1) Designer DYI: everyone loves a great DO it yourself project however be thoughtful with your project planning but there’s a great DIY like recreating that thousand dollar Pucci bag with some pretty beads and a hot glue gun and there’s walking around with a macaroni mess held together. Y paper clips. Not all DYIs are good. Keep them simple and look at some videos online before deciding on a project that’s for you.

Logo fashion trend spring2) Wearing Logos: if your going to become a walking advertisement for your favorite label, try to keep it to one piece of clothing at a time. There was a time when Jacqueline Kennedy never wore logo tees and thought they were to be saved for youthful rebellious teenagers but if you between the ages of 12-25 a logo tee is certainly appropriate to demonstrate your personal views. But other than for workout wear, still to classic looks that aren’t to wordy. Try to focus on fabric texture, colors and fit instead.

SPring fashion luxury trends3) Focus on Luxury: there are some beautiful pieces this season that you won’t regret spending your luxury dollars on this season. A couple of my favorites are the leather bucket bag, a great pair of suede mules, chunky gold bracelet or necklace.
These styles won’t be trends that pass quickly and they are classic enough to pair them in unlimited ways as you move through seasons. Bag: Mansur Gavriel, $495 each; net-a-porter.

Low_heels spring fashion shoe trends4) Speaking of Shoes: the low heeled pump is back and woman are enjoying this as a work shoe. When it comes to shoes, you can typically be true to yourself and your lifestyle. I personally have never had an issue buying any color, heel shape or style and not been able to make it work down the Lin, however I have a rather large inventory to choose from. So with that being said, if your looking to invest in shoes this season, I like the nude styles, a chunky heel on a colorful or cork shoes is a fun comfortable style, the ankle straps are great and a goddess sandal for the next few months is going to be fun to wear.

Board shorts Spring Fashion Trends5) Board Shorts are those print surf shorts that end at the knee. It looks like a Hawaiian walking short to me. I personally wouldn’t invest in them because the trend is like a beach fad. I think that there’s nothing like all white shorts for the beach and a fresh stripe shirt or halter top in a solid color. You can even get fun with a Hawaiian print but I don’t see the board shorts being a fashion statement past the beach.

Spring tribal Fashion Trends6) Tribal Trend: this trend is a little to heavy for me. The elements can be very over powering for smaller frames and just have so much going on. They can look very costume. Instead try to get your tribal fix with a bag or accessories like earrings or necklace. Even a touch on a tee shirt something that won’t be a huge investment because it’s going to look outdated and silly once it’s over. The farthest I would go in a purchase is perhaps a tunic to wear with jeans for around $100. Tunics can get away with carrying trends further into other seasons because they have a casual wear with jeans feel that doesn’t typically force a statement to far.

spring-2014-picks-17) Piling on Jewels: right now the magazines are pilling on ear cuffs, arm bands, multi layers of bracelets, statement necklaces, statement earrings. Oh my gosh.. Hold on ..this is just a mess. More is not more. I would look and feel ridiculous wearing so much amour. A lady is a lady… Be reasonable and stick to one major statement piece at a time. Two max if they aren’t sitting close to each other and they don’t make you look like a Halloween costume version of yourself. I’m all for stunning jewelry but just don’t try to wear it all at once.

XL_1200x800_08-lgn8) Guilded with rose gold Metallics: metallics can be great for evening but again less is more. Don’t go head to toe metallic. Choose one item. Shoes, a bag, a cuff, or a shirt then mix it with matte fabrics in classic shapes to keep it from being over powering. I like black slacks or jeans, a metallic sheer shirt to lighten up the heaviness and add one bracelet of the color. Then shoes and bag should be neutral matching the black slacks. Your look can be so messy and over done otherwise.

XL_1200x800_09-lgn9) High Shine: high shiny fabrics are flying down the runways with a rain slick look in super bright shades. These trends won’t last long so don’t throw the luxury money at them, instead find pieces under $50 so you won’t kick yourself when your bored. We all like shiny things but clothing that shines wears out is appeal quickly and one the trend is gone people will look at you like your odd walking around in a bright yellow patent leather rain coat unless your a rock star. In which case, rock on you need the attention anyway. It could end up being your trademark.

Hawaiian-GR-Tankdress_look_10) Prints: prints are personal. Some people will be attracted to florals, others to geometrics. Colors are always appealing to the wearer and the viewers because they are so uplifting. But choosing the right sundresses can be tricky. I love fit and flare shapes for all my clients because they hide figure flaws and accent the best parts then work to smooth out the bumps.

Join host Jacqueline Jax as she sits down with WordPress Website Design expert Hector Torres (www.idealocity.com) about the advantages of having a wordpress web site. Topics will also include SEO Tips of the trade for the best results, the most important things to have on your web pages, and how to get more views. If you want or have your own website, product page or blog, you don’t want to miss this show.

best-free-wordpress-themesSome of the topics that will be discussed are:
Why do we recommend using WordPress for a website?
Easy to use for novice users.

What’s the difference between using self hosted wordpress.org and fully hosted wordpress.com? Experiment with wordpress.com with a limited web page that works terrific for bloggers but is limited when trying to sell products or using adwords. For a more advanced web site with additional features defiantly go with a self hosted web building styles: like sample: http://www.idealocity.com/recent-work/

Is WordPress just for blogging or can it be used for selling products and services?  No it can be used by anyone.

What is SEO?
Search Engine Optimization success is all about content. Be sure to keep things fresh and think about key things like tagging, tiles and content.

Tips:
1) Always use an H1 tag heading and subheadings somewhere inside your post to allow the search engines to identify your topics. Make sure to use them in order. (Heading 1, 2, 3..)
2) Use hyperlinks to other pages and posts related to your content. Never use (click here) instead type out the page title so the key words will help you to get better traction.
3) Add images to enhance your SEO listings. Make sure to use the ALT tag to describe your image. Be very descriptive including the key words only. You do not need to include unimportant words in the title like: the, and, with..

What are some important things to place on your pages and posts to improve your content and SEO? It’s important to create content that aligns with your topic. Identify your sub-niche and stick to it. Don’t diversify to much without adding menu or categories items to your web site frame. It’s very important to be organized with your content.

What are the differences between on-page SEO and off-page SEO?

Justin J Grant

Behind The Music with Irish Singer Songwriter Justin J Grant

Behind the music Justin J Grant - Jacqueline JaxJustin J Grant is a singer/multi-instrumentalist from Newry, N.Ireland. He has been performing in public from the age of fifteen, formerly as the front man of a locally acclaimed six piece band and currently as a solo artist playing all over Ireland and the U.K. Justin is a prolific writer and has an extensive Catalogue of wonderful melody driven contemporary songs of which fourteen are presented on his debut album, “  Break The Wing  “

INTERVIEW

JAX: Where were you born and where have you been living for the past 10 years.
JUSTIN: I was born in Newry Co Down N. Ireland,  I got interested in music from an early age.  And then people told me I could sing I just thought I was making a funny noise,  So I ended up playing guitar and singing in bands.  In 2001 I had ideas about songs of my own so I bought a cheap ticket & headed for the bright lights of Belfast City.  And I am very grateful I have had the chance to enlighten a few peoples ear holes along the way with my music.


JAX: Why do you create music and what do you most love about it?
JUSTIN: Well I had nothing else to do,  I started out as a guitar player back then I had to sing well because nobody else wanted to sing my songs, And I had a natural talent for the guitar because my father was a musician he tought me how to play and I really liked the idea about that. My passion for song blossomed on the back of a love for an eclectic range of stars like The Mamas and Papas,  The Beatles, David Bowie, Tim Hardin, Glen Campbell, Hendrix, Cream, And I used to watch people playing on stage and thought wow hey one day that could be me and now it appears to be that way,  Weather people like it or not is neither here nor there.  So I just started writing more songs working with my then producer/ manager Andy Cowan Martin where we shuffled songs about,  From some scratchy beginnings we have ended up with what I think is a really great album of which I am very proud.


JAX: Do you play gigs, tour or primarily share your music online? And are there any challenges to what your doing?
JUSTIN: Last year I played live across Ireland and England and we have picked up radio play in Japan, Nashville, Spain, Holland, UK Ireland and number 10 in the UK Country charts. At the moment I am working on new material writing recording demos that sort of thing,   All I can do is put my music out there and hope people like it,  And if they don’t well I can always do a runner Hee Hee. Well the internet is taking over in a big so I am afraid to say I will have to let peter the carrier pigeon go,…But for the time being if any one wants to get a hold of my music then go to I tunes/ Amazon & just squirt Justin J Grant “Break the Wing”  into the web & I shall pop up.


JAX: Name 3 words that best describe you and tell me why.
JUSTIN: Happy Hoppy Floppy   Well because I am a happy kinda guy,  Hoppy because I cant sit down always on the go go me & floppy because I have long-lasting floppy disk hair.


JAX:  What’s the music scene like where you are? Best places to go to hear music?
JUSTIN: Ireland has always had a great music scene,  My best venues for original music would have to be the Spirit Store in Dundalk, Amplified Bar in Newry & The Black Box Belfast.

JAX: Tell me about your best music moment.
JUSTIN: My best music moment would have to be back in 2008 watching Glen Campbell perform  Wichita Lineman Live at the waterfront hall in Belfast,  tugs at my heart and soul every time.

Hey I have had a few great moments in my life and this is one of them,  Thanks for having me. I am humbled XO

Join host Jacqueline Jax as she gives you the hard truth about branding your name online using adwords, facebook and search engines. with questions answered from our audience.

Q: Benni Chawes – Website: http://www.chawes.net
I just listen to you on youtube “Choosing a Successful Brand Name”. Thanks a lot for sharing your wisdom!!! I’m REALLY in big doubt about my name….!!!
It’s absolutely special ‘Benni Chawes’ but gets misspelled a lot let alone mispronounced.
I’m a danish singer/piano player. I do jazz/soul/pop idiom (www.chawes.net) and have been using that (birth) name for 8+ years now. I think I’m cutting of potential fans – or at least not getting out there as much as I could with that name. And that’s a shame – I LOOOOVE performing and sharing my music with them. When ever I perform world wide in all modesty people really love what I’m doing :-)
I also incorporate my vocal instruments into the show. With my voice I sound like the true guitar, drums, bass, and percussion.
I released an album (late 2006), have toured in 20+ countries, sponsored by prestigious Bang & Olufsen as the first musician ever, won awards and have opened up for Ray Charles. Can you guide me? How do I go about this? Help…!!!!! :-)
Thanks for reading all this ;-)
Bless you. Benni

A: First let me say thank you for tuning in and I’m really glad you asked this question. Our name is something we all agonize over especially when things don’t take off as quickly as anticipated. Here are a few things you should consider moving forward.

1) since this is your birth name no one can ever prevent you from using it even if they trademark it and unusual names can be great for search engine listings. If no one else has a name close to yours, then it should be pretty easy for you to command your spot in the searches and control what information represents you especially if you are able to own your domain, facebook, twitter, linkedin, and other social media versions as well.

2) because your name is unusual, you will have to work on branding it to your audience. By branding I mean saying your name allowed often via interviews, video, podcasts, sound bites, etc. Also use your name in your logo and use it on every photo you release even on Instagram to imprint it further. For instance I always say my complete name in everything that I do and I rarely shorten or abbreviate.. “Jacqueline Jax” so people now call me by my my first and last name and as a result of all this branding over a few years, I am totally commanding my own name in the searches.

3) consider buying common misspelling .coms if you think it’s being done often and redirect those .coms to your web site. Also be sure to get all social media platforms in your name as they come out even if you don’t use them now, it helps to prevent competition before hand or fake profiles from being created. I also love the fact that many social media platforms command high search rankings if you update your page often, so make sure your content is streaming to those places as well.

4) Own it! Take pride in the name you’ve chosen and embrace it. If you appreciate it for the original reasons you selected the name, your customers and followers will also. You just have to find ways to connect the name to your product. You can do that with an image, tag lines, and content. Think about it, who would have thought that Pepsi or Shakira would have been memorable, now everyone knows it and recognizes the name and the product/ persons music.

Q: Is GoogleAdwords the best way to go? Or is there something better? Amy- Ohio
A: It will vary depending upon what type of website you have, what your target market is, and what you’re selling. Some businesses have great success with AdWords. For others, Facebook or Bing have shown better financial results. As with any advertising champagne be prepared because there is always a chance that your Pay Per click campaigns won’t be profitable at all? There are just to many factors that can effect your results so a trial and error period is necessary. When I first started promoting my clothing line on the web, I used Pay-per-click and found that my advertising budget got used up quickly with no sales conversions. Sure I got some traffic but what good do that do if I didn’t see any sales. I think it’s a numbers game, if you have a viral product then perhaps pay-per-click is something that can get you to the masses but new companies and music artists should beware of the cost verses the reward here. It’s a numbers game, if you don’t have lots of dollars to spend, use them on something else that will get the word out and leave an impression. The best advice I can offer, is test it for yourself on facebook before starting a campagne. Create several approaches and place them up during the morning, afternoon and evening with an image and see what sticks. Keep track of the likes, follow through rate and comments to see what works best for your products or service. Then once you have something that tests well, use that add or formula to create more. I’m still a fan of building true relationships over time and the loyalty that comes with caring about the customers you have rather than the anonymous numbers your hoping to attract. In other words, it’s about quality customers rather than quantity.

Q: How can I get the right customers to my website ? Tim – Australia
A: Attracting customers online has a lot to do with search engines. I would suggest creating a list of keywords to aim for. Cut down the # of keywords to target your quest. When you go out and try to rank for to many keywords you get lost. I suggest to start out with 5-7 keywords that you can rank for. To do this you want to use a tool like Google Keyword Planner which is free. Jot down a few of your keywords to see what the search results are. If they are to high (meaning lots of people search for it) then the competition to get to page 1 will take a longer time (and more money) where as something that gets smaller search results (but still brings targeted traffic) can be done sooner for less money. You also need to be aware that things like this are not done overnight. You’ve got to understand who your competitors are and what they are already doing. Once you know what they do to be on page 1 you do the same but better and smarter. Also remember like I said before, even if you bring in the traffic it does not guarantee any sales. Your website now has to reach out to them and make it easy and trustworthy for a new customer to buy. Another reason I like pursuing quality relationships rather than quantity of hit. You may want to show more of who is behind the scenes of your products. Meaning put up some pictures of the actual staff, you creating or how you perfect your craft. Make it easy for customers to see the price savings so they feel your prices are great as well. Since everything has already been done in some way before, you really need to be different and also have a MAJOR social media networker. Be innovative in putting yourself out there. Your website has to speak volumes to the traffic that visits and must convey honesty, trust and that you know your industry. It must look professional and accurately convey your brands message upon first glance with a fast page loading time and clarity. Otherwise they will just go to the big brands who they already trust and those hits won’t convert into sales.

Thanks for tuning in. If you have comments or questions, ask them here and I’ll answer them on the next show. Don’t forget to subscribe and hit the “like” and “share” button if this was helpful.

SHOW NOTES:

Top 5 Ways To Deal with Fear?
1) Find something that your more afraid of and throw your energy there. For instance, compare your current fear to a level of regretting that you never moved forward.

2) Run thru your fear. Focus on what will happen if you move forward? Ask yourself what’s the worst that can happen.

3) Deal with your real limitations. Think about your doubts and question is they are 100% true.

4) Don’t give fear more credit than your other emotions. Fear is an emotion but not the end point of your emotional being. Don’t give fear all your energy.

5) Don’t put pressure on yourself. Realize that your not the first person to have the idea that your stressing over. Relax and take comfort in the fact that your everyone is trying to live their dreams.

PURSUING YOUR DREAM JOB
Question: I recently got my chance to start my dream job and I’m worried about taking that leap. It would mean that I have to let go of what I’m doing now and make less money. How can I stop worrying about the security of what I have now to go for my dreams? Sara- Ohio

GOING AGAINST THE GRAIN
Find out about going against the norm. What’s good for one life isn’t the best for all. Set your own life goals and don’t fear pursuing your passions.
FEAR OF TRUSTING
I was in an abusive relationship recently and now I’m afraid that I won’t see the signs again. How can I learn to trust myself again? Kimberly – Destin, FL

DENIAL
You can’t make someone change their mind so education is key to helping others with denial. Does it seem that everyone and their dog is working against you? Are you just a poor innocent victim in what seems to be one huge conspiracy against you? How does your ego effect your level of denial?

AM I GAY?
Im 20 years old. My worrying all began when my buddy asked if I was gay and I got defensive saying F*** You! Ever since then I have been worried that I have been gay all along and never realized it. I will sit at home and think about how I might be gay. I delve very deep into my reasoning and it causes extreme fear and panic. For instance my biggest reasoning is that I can’t seem to talk to girls. Now before all this worrying I never thought I was gay and just thought I was scared of girls, but now I fear that I can’t talk to girls cause I’ve been gay this whole time. Another thing that happens is if I see a guy now I get a weird feeling in my stomach and that occurs with just a look no matter what they look like and then I start worrying that I got attracted to them. Basically I don’t care if I’m gay or straight I just can’t stand this worrying about GAY.

A.V.A Live Radio: Milan Heger Surviving in the Art Business

Listen in to the show Live at 1pm est today: www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2014/01/10/ava-live-radio-milan-heger-surviving-in-the-art-business

Jax_Favorites_face0Join host Jacqueline Jax as she gets up close and personal with Seattle based architect, furniture designer, and Artist, Milan Heger. Before the 2009 economic recession, Milan Heger was thriving in business and creativity. As the housing market crashed, he found himself among the millions of people waking up at night worried about not only the future of his company but how he was going to provide for his family. In a statement released on September 7,2011 in Entrepreneur Magazine, Milan said, “The biggest pressure is the status of my mortgage and college payments. I felt not like a failure, but like a father who wasn’t doing what he was supposed to do. I’d sit in the car in the driveway and not want to get out. It’s hard and continues to be hard.”

Milan’s experience sheds light on the reality and challenges that every small business owner faces. That reality is that you have to brave great risk to obtain great rewards. Life challenges us at every corner but it’s the people who can pick themselves back up and continue on that defines the winners from the losers. Now were diving into  his story of strength, creativity and determination. And break down the business of Art. From inspiration to creation to marketing, listen to a real conversation on navigating the art world in today’s market place.

Milan Heger : “Discover who you are by discovering who you aren’t.”

His secret to discovering who you are:
1) Find time every day after your normal job to discover and experiment with things you may enjoy or be passionate about.

2) Set aside 1 day a week to pursue your dream or at least contemplate what you would like your life to be like.

3) Pursue what excites you most and find out how to turn it into a career.

Avoiding the Marketing Trap:
1) Don’t get busy and think that you don’t have to market your products.

2) Let the world know about your work using social media pages like twitter,  facebook and linkedin.

3) Arrange gallery showings and art fair exhibits to gain exposure.

4) Find magazines that are specializing in your products and send them a picture for your work with information to their new products department.

Today’s Show Notes:

#1- Research Popular Content From Your Competitors
by Ian clear fromRazor Social: If a type of content is popular with the audience of your competitors and colleagues, it stands to reason that a similar post will be popular with your audience. This isn’t about copying content, it’s about crafting content around a similar topic, but with a different slant.

For example, Jeff Bullas wrote a blog post on 7 Marketing Trends You Shouldn’t Ignore, which was very popular. He used his post as inspiration to write a post titled 7 Social Media Tool Trends You Shouldn’t Ignore … this article was also very popular.

There are a few tools that help with his research:
Social Crawlytics does an analysis of your competitor’s content and shows you how often each post is shared across each of the social networks.

SEMRush shows you what keywords bring your competitor the most traffic so you can target the same keywords in your own content.

My favorite thing to do is drive inspiration from facebook pages and instagram a that I follow and admire. If your a singer, then follow the top 5 in your genre for ideas of how you could better reach your audience with your content. Looks at their photos, statements, tags, links, time of day and how often they post.
This is a great way to get inspired when your feeling thirsty for new content ideas. You’ll get a to Of great ideas. And always follow the best and the ones who apply to what your doing.

#2- Increase Views on YouTube Using These Thumbnail Creation Tips
Gideon Shalwick : It’s no secret that getting more views on YouTube can greatly help grow your business online. But with the vast majority of videos on YouTube getting mediocre results, everyone wants to know how to get more legitimate views! One of the easiest ways to get more views is to create compelling, attention-grabbing thumbnails for your videos.

The Secret to Creating Powerful YouTube Thumbnails is at your finger tips. You need to get three things right for creating powerful YouTube thumbnails.

Check Your Graphics: Start with a good headshot or closeup of your face to create a personal touch with your thumbnail, then add a colorful background—like a starburst—to grab viewers’ attention. Use attention-grabbing backgrounds.

Text: Use compelling text inside your thumbnail design to tell your viewers instantly what your video is about and why they should watch it—maybe use your video title. Make sure your text is easy to read, even at the smallest display size of your thumbnail on YouTube, and that the image is on the left and text is on the right.

X-Factor: Think about how you can inject emotion into your thumbnails. For example, the expression on the face of the person you’re using can be that of shock, amazement, disgust, enjoyment… choose an emotion that will create intrigue and get people to click on the image.
Great tips from Gideon.

#3: Limit Your Social Media Platforms
John Lee Dumas from Entrepreneuronfire.com
His social media marketing tip for businesses today is to find three or four social media platforms where you can build the strongest presence that will be most beneficial for your business. With countless social media platforms available today, it’s impossible to grow a strong presence on every one. Having a mediocre presence on six or seven social media platforms is far inferior to a strong presence on three or four when it comes to your social media marketing goals. Do your research and build a strong presence on three or four platforms. His point is, Why spend time on social media platforms where your audience might be hanging out when you could be spending that time on social media platforms where you know your audience will be hanging out?

To find out if your target audience spends most of their time on one platform over another, join online groups within those platforms that focus on your industry or niche. If you find that the members are really active and engage on the topics you’re focused on in your business, there’s a good chance that a presence on that platform will benefit your business.

I personally like to use different platforms for different things. For instance my wordpress blogs are for my articles and news, then my facebook allows me to build more meaningful relationships with my followers. I use twitter to drive traffic and discover new things. Research information, etc, linkedin for business connections, Instagram @JacquelineJax to share and create images and Pinterest to share products with links for purchasing, everything is cross promoted into each other from time to time and tumblr and twitter gets it all. That’s a quick picture of my social media world for @jacquelinejax and my clothing company @blondibeachwear

A.V.A Live Radio Behind The Music with Artist Helena Micy

Behind The Music Jacqueline Jax Helena MicyListen in: www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2013/12/08/ava-live-radio-behind-the-music-artist-helena-micy

Listen in live as host Jacqueline Jax speaks with UK artist Helena Micy.
Getting up close and personal with UK music artist Helena Micy..
What gets her hot, A leap of faith from Greece to the UK, and What it’s like to be flawed. Listen in now…

Music: Don’t Change, Leave Me Alone, and Listen.

GETTING TO KNOW HELENA MICY
1) What are three things that would surprise us to know about you?
Good question this one!
1) I’ve always been singing in English even when I didn’t speak any since I was born and raised in Greece.
2) I quit my two universities to study music and
3) I left my country after 25 years of living there, to come to the UK and chase my dreams. It’s Never too late and so far it’s going really good! :)
2) Name three words that best describe you and why?
1. Stubborn because I always do what I want without listening to what others advise me to do (it’s not a good thing by the way),
2. Very spontaneous. Most of the times I say and do what I feel which is not a good thing to have again and 3. Passionate! If I do something I really love, I give my heart, soul and life to it without thinking that the outcome might be a negative one.
 As you can see, I’m full of flaws. hehe
3) Who was the single most influential person in your music journey so far?
Cristina Scabbia from Lacuna Coil.

4) Any backstage, pre-show rituals? How do you get “in the zone”?
H: I don’t really have any specific rituals but I’m giving a general pep talk to myself most of the times. Before a show I am always nervous because I want it to be perfect but nothing is perfect in life so I am saying to myself that I did the best I could to be prepared for this moment, that I am here to enjoy the show, give my all on stage and do my best, and most importantly to entertain the crowd in order for everybody to encounter a wonderful experience. :) I guess now that I have my full band, we’ll maybe start doing pre show rituals all together. hehe

5) Have you collaborated with any other artists? Who have been your favorites to work with. OR who is on your wishlist? If you could collaborate with anyone in the industry right now, who would that be and why?
H: I collaborated with many wonderful artists from Greece so far such as Stereo Mike (MTV awarded rapper – producer) , Maxi Nil (VOA) and Johnny Zero (Elysion) but the collaboration with Stereo Mike was a big lesson for me because he has a very good knowledge on how things work in the music business so I learnt a lot from him. Our collaboration is an on going process for 3 years now. He did a feature on my EP 3 years ago, then I recorded vocals for his album, currently he is producing my debut album and recently became the bass player in my newly formed band too which is amazing.
I would love to collaborate with so many artists I respect but if I had to pick one, it would be Lacuna Coil because they are the first who inspired me in order to follow the music path and chase my dreams.
 
6) Indie or mainstream? As in would you like to remain an indie artist or is the goal to eventually break out into the mainstream music biz? why or why not?
H: hmmm this is a really good question but I really don’t know which way I will go in the future. I believe you can have a great career both ways but every situation has its pros and cons. I mean.. I am unsigned and indie for now and it’s great because I have 100% control over my career moves. Everyday I am learning something new about the music business and it’s really helpful for an artist to acquire the business know-how but the bad thing is I do not have the time I need to focus on writing music. On the other hand when you’re signed to a label, you don’t have the absolute freedom to do what you want with your music career but I am not against contracts with labels at all. If a good deal comes my way, I will grab the opportunity for sure. :)
 
7) If  you do have plans to release your music mainstream, why do you think its so hard for indie artists to break into the mainstream market?
H: Even when you’re signed to a label it’s still hard to break into the mainstream market as things are very competitive and you have to have the right team around you as well, plus you need a bit of luck too. As an Indie artist, most probably you do everything yourself or with the help of few people who most of the times will be friends or die hard fans. It’s very hard for an emerging artist to be creative and to have a business mind too and I think this is why most indie artists won’t do a mainstream breakthrough. Let’s face it. Music becomes a business when you do it professionally and with the help of the right businessmen/women around you, you can have great fame.
8) What is the single biggest compliment or piece of advice you have received from a fellow artist?
H: “Always work for the song. Let it take you where it wants to go.” – Stereo Mike on how to compose music.
 
9) If ever you decide to hang up the microphone/instruments what is the single most important thing you want people to remember about your artistry? what legacy do you want to leave?
H: I really want to inspire people with my story actually. I’m from a small town in Greece called Elassona where there was no music school around. English is not my native language, yet I write lyrics and sing in English. Greece doesn’t have an R’N’B/Soul music legacy at all so having said all that I would like to be remembered as an artist who defied all odds and did the best she could to achieve her dreams. I want to inspire people to achieve their dreams because I really believe you can achieve anything, if you believe in your own power and work hard enough.
