Marketing Tip of the Day: Visualizing Your Dreams For Success and Having Faith In Yourself

success secrets from entrepreneur Jacqueline JaxIn speaking with many successful entrepreneurs concerning how they conquered their greatest challenges and fulfilled their dreams, there is one thing that they all have in common. This common characteristic is more of a personality trait than a skill. It is something that can be learned and can be easy practiced every single day. The one thing that they all have is FAITH.

Faith can be a fairly abstract concept for some people to wrap their heads around because it’s so easily lost. There will be days when you wake up with faith and one thing happens two hours later that derails your faith in yourself sending you spiraling into negativity. It’s a concept that’s fragile because the human mind is powerful and susceptible to outside influences.

But with our powerful minds, we can do great things. I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “What you can visualize, you can materialize”. I can honestly tell you from experience that I been able to achieve amazing things just by visualizing specifically what I want, having faith in myself and holding steadily to the coarse every hour until it’s achieved. This unwavering supply of positive energy powered by my faith is an unstoppable driving force that can take me anywhere I want to go.

You can have this powerful energy behind you as well just be following these tips that I have gathered from the cream of the crop of achievers.

1) Set Your Goals: Decide what it is that you want to accomplish and write down the steps you think it may take to get there.

2) Learn: create a list of things you need to know in order to achieve your goal and start researching those specific ideas by choosing one thing each day or week depending on your deadline.

3) Connect: connect with people who can help you with their experience and or knowledge. Strive to connect with at least one new person every single day who shares in your vision. This may be someone who has a business in alignment with yours who may benefit from you as well if you partner up.

4) People: surround yourself with only positive people. Remove or block any negative energy coming in from the outside while you work to achieve your goal. You can’t allow even one negative person to be in your life who could derail your progress with thoughts like : fear of failure, distraction, contradictions or negative feedback.

5) Positivity: wake up every single day with faith in yourself and remind yourself every single hour that you can do this! Believe that you CAN and WILL learn what you don’t know. Believe that you deserve to be successful. Believe that it’s your time to accomplish this goal. And most of all believe that no matter what obstacles suddenly appear, they are simply a learning experience in your journey to success.

Best wishes to you on your journey, hope you’ll share it with me below.

Marketing Tip of the day: Ideas for Making Your Products and Brand More Memorable

Have you ever wondered why some products go viral and some just don’t get any attention? Here are six ideas discussed in Maria Forlios video interview to help you get the insider information.

Social currency:
Making your customers feel special is so important and can help your brand spread with a viral surge. Companies who know their customers, can easily find ways to make them feel special so they will be more likely to share their experience with their social media friends. If your luck, your brand will get to come along for the ride as your customer brags virally about their experience. Try selecting some clients to receive free goodies, special offers for something they did, etc.

Associate your Products:
By associating your products with something that reminds people of you you can start to associate your products with emotional triggers that will make people think of your product. Ask yourself, what can I link my product to that will remind people to buy me. Great ideas would be to associate a show for a certain day, or perhaps a commonly seems animal with your brand.

Rule of 100 on pricing:
This simple rule helps you benefit from offering discounts. Make a discount special by focusing on what value appears to be a better deal. Example: if you offer 25%off of 100, then by framing the discount as $25 off your $100 purchase may appear like a better deal than just by saying 25%off.

Offer Options:
Introducing a new more expensive option to compare your product to gives the buyer a reference point to appreciate your special deal. This concept is used all the time on the Internet to draw the customer to the item that appears to be the best value in comparison to another similar item.

Identifying Options:
Use messages to market your product in a sharper way. One of the best ways to do that is to identify the key things about your brand and products that make them special, helpful or significant.

Shorten your message for more impact:
Having a short version of a message that makes your idea easier to communicate. Over all you need a to create something that is remarkable, cuts through the clutter and sharpens the message to make an impact.

As you can tell there’s a lot to making an impact with your branding and marketing strategy, so focus strong, keep moving forward and don’t forget to subscribe to us today so you can keep learning from the best advisers in the field. Check out some other articles that may help you.

Marketing Tip of the day: 3 Steps To Building Stronger Brand Awareness

Jacqueline-Jax-ShowDid you join us on facebook.com/AvALiveRadio yet? Maybe it’s time you joined the page so you won’t miss out on our conversation and daily social media marketing inspiration. Our tips keep you from getting lost and give you that daily direction for building a better facebook page that’s rich with content and more responsive readers.  – JAX

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.

1)   Memorability: making a lasting impression is one of the most important things that drives a brand. Presenting memorable moments, presentations, and product. How do we make our brand more memorable to the employees and the people who shop with us.

  1. Framework for a strong foundation: by laying a strong foundation down, a positive brand will be able to radiate outward in the daily activities of the employees as they sell the products.
  2. Material reminders: pieces of media, business cards, letter head, brochures.
  3. Social Events: gatherings of employees, customers and new people to introduce the brand and allow them to share and experience the company’s energy in a social atmosphere.
  4. Brand memorability: is the product memorable? What can you do to make it more memorable? Advertising?

2)   Perceived value: The value that the customer feels they are getting from doing business with your company is very important. If either the seller or the customer feels that the product is not worth the price or it doesn’t offer value for the purchase, your entire brand will be affected.

  1. Make sure that you research your market constantly to align your products with your competitors.
  2. List everything that makes your product unique and different from products or services that are similar

3)   Familiarity: Making your brand a familiar piece of everyone’s every day life, isn’t always possible but it’s important to strive to make your brand important within your own sub niche. Keep these concepts in mind.

  1. The more you are seen by someone, the more familiar you become to them.
  2. People who have never done business with you, will most likely do business with you once they become familiar with your brand.
  3. A recommendation from your client is the best way to get a new customer familiar with your brand products and services.
  4. Advertising is so important to becoming more familiar within your sub niche. Ads on local buses, news, blogs, social media, physical printed reminders are all great ways of reminding people about you and what you do.

Marketing Tip of the day: Framework for Creating a Stronger Internal Business Brand

Jacqueline-Jax-ShowDid you join us on facebook.com/AvALiveRadio yet? Maybe it’s time you joined the page so you won’t miss out on our conversations. Monday through Friday we give you daily social media marketing inspiration. Our tips keep you from getting lost and give you that daily direction for building a better facebook page that’s rich with content and more responsive readers.  – JAX

Marketing Tip of the day: Framework for Creating a Stronger Internal Business Brand

Step 1: DEFINE
Define what makes your organization unique, and what values you represent. Define the target audience for your products or services and gain an understanding of what this audience needs from your organization.

Step 2 : VALUE
Define the value you are delivering to your customers; what business problems do you hope to solve with your product or services? Identify any gaps between what is truly valuable to your customers and how you internally define your brand.

Step 3: TEST THE EXPERIENCE
Expand your focus group to include a range of customers, business partners and other important colleges. How does their experience with your company differ from your brand definition? Or is it consistent?

Step 4: STRATEGY
Most importantly identify gaps between how you define your brand and your business strategy. Is there a close alignment between what you believe your organizations represents and what will ultimately help achieve revenue. Check your quality. If you champion a particular element of your brand but don’t relay that consistently, then you would notice a gap between your brand and busin

Step 5: FRAMEWORK
Developing a simple brand framework will help you clearly articulate what your business strategy is striving to achieve. A creative team can work with the company employees to develop this framework and identify all the opportunities that your brand can be communicated through creative design and application.

Notes: Engaging the brand and relaying the experience: Do the employees relay the company brand to the customer through their actions, performance and daily connections?

Secrets of Success:: Changes To Facebook and Social Media That Will Effect Your Traffic

 

AVA_Facebook_Jacqueline_JaxChanges to facebook that will effect your reach and traffic:

Typically it’s a common practice to post different times per day on facebook so that you can increase the amount of people seeing your postings, but recently I discovered an article that facebook is making changes to the way that a post is being seen. Business pages are going to have to purchase adds in order to be seen by more than 1-6% of their followers in the news feed. Not fair perhaps, however it goes without saying that it is their prerogative to do so. I have always said that it’s best to build up our own mailing list, work directly from your own web site and never rely on only 1 form of social media for traffic. It’s best to remember that you don’t own those social media pages that you signup for and they can change the rules at any time. This article just adds fuel to the fire.  Facebook is making moves and changes in one way to filter to much spam and reposting, but in another to make money. You should be aware of the changes in the game and adjust your strategy accordingly.

A better plan for using Social Media to market your products

Want to hear about a better plan for marketing your goods? Let me walk you through my Sunday morning research as a guide line for a longer lasting marketing strategy. Learn more about the different social media platforms and why they may be a perfect fit for your business marketing plan.

Start with your own web site:

You own your web site and all the content on it so doesn’t it make more sense to focus on improving the content on your own web pages first? Listen to my latest show where I talked with web design specialist and SEO adviser Hector Torres from Idealocity.com about creating better SEO friendly content and how to tag your content so the search engines can recognize it. Listen to the show and read the notes: http://avaliveradio.wordpress.com/2014/04/10/secrets-of-success-advantages-to-a-wordpress-website-seo-tips-getting-views/

Discover which social media platforms are best for your business.

Not all platforms are equal and not all will get your products in front of the right group of people. Some are heavier with female buying traffic, some are just for building better brand awareness and others are great to let people know more about the face behind the brand. It’s best to identify what you want to accomplish and then start using the right social media platform to achieve your goal.

Pinterest:

If you sell fashion or beauty products, Pinterest is terrific to get your message out there because its heavy on female traffic already searching for those things. Very expensive paid advertising is on it’s way and has already been tested but 83 percent of “pinners” are women, compared to 53 percent of Facebook users and 49 percent of Twitter users.  Women are more likely to interact with brands on social media, and they buy more online.  http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/232418

Youtube

is a powerful visual platform that has the potential of reaching a viral amount of new people quickly depending on your message and how interesting your make your video. But it’s no easy task to creating something that will go viral. Instead of focusing on trying to create viral videos, you should dedicate your efforts to catering specifically to your target audience.  http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/230501  For instance, I just started a Home shopping show segment on AVA LIVE RADIO to talk about fashion  and style to my fashion clients on a visual platform that is easily seen. I’m not thinking about how to make the video’s go viral, I’m thinking about providing the best and most fashion informative content I can that will solve style issues. By answering my customers common fashion problems, I have the best chance at not only getting viewed by current clients but appealing to new ones as well. Check out the show if your curious: http://avaliveradio.wordpress.com/category/jax-couture-home-shopping/

Twitter

is an ongoing- in the moment conversation where you can reach out to people and actually get a reply on breaking news or announcements. But you really have to follow the trends and be quick to act on what people are searching for. I found a helpful twitter tips article from Entrepreneur magazine that may help you get in the game . I especially loved what they said about : “Save the sales pitch. Don’t get caught up in using Twitter as a selling tool. Instead, use it to increase customer loyalty and offer valuable information to your followers. Overmarketing will merely leave a sour taste in followers’ mouths, and you may even end up losing them if their feed gets too clogged with too many promotions. Be viewed as a resource, not a door to door .” salesperson. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/230891

Facebook

is great to let customers get to know the people behind the brand. It’s not a place for spamming and just like I said at the beginning of this article, major changes have already been made to how your posts get filtered. So be sure to read the article I linked up and stay subscribed to us here at A.V.A Live Radio to stay up to date.  Basically, as I have researched, you’ll want to portray your business in a friendly, “sociable” manner, as a place where customers are treated well and “everybody knows your name.” Almost any business can benefit from having a Facebook page. But Facebook isn’t about selling.  http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/230020 Great information to keep in mind..

Linkedin

is a business to business connection platform where people are gathering resources and contacts for their businesses. It’s a great place to establish your credibility in your industry among your piers. “When a member publishes a post on LinkedIn, their original content becomes part of their professional profile, is shared with their trusted network and has the ability to reach the largest group of professionals ever assembled.” http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/231626 .. There are some awesome articles about linked in that I have gathered for you at the bottom of the page if your interested.

Instagram

This image dominant platform is fun to use but from a “marketing perspective, the community’s enthusiastic fan base and built-in social aspects make it an ideal place to connect with potential customers and build brand recognition. ” http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/226014
I enjoyed learning about these 3 tips to getting more likes on imgaes:  Keep it cool: Photos dominated by blues and other cool colors tend to garner more likes while photos with warmer oranges and reds do worse.
Master monochrome: The more dominant a single color is on an image, the more likes it could get. Pictures dominated by a single hue receive 40 percent more likes than those that don’t.
With color, less is more: It can be tempting to ratchet up the vibrancy, flooding your image with color to make it stand out. But in today’s overstimulated world, bright and vibrant colors can get lost. The proof is in the data: Curalate says less saturated images receive 18 percent more likes than their mover vibrant counterparts. http://www.entrepreneur.com/article/229901

Start a Mailing List:

Although you may think it’s old hat, a good old mailing list still works miracles at getting your message and offers directly to your customers. Use Mailchimp or an opt in subscription signup on your blog to collect those emails and stay in touch with those who want to hear from you. Keep your content fresh, updated and in motion. Make sure you are always competitive in price and offering incentives for people to visit often, don’t spam your followers but set up a consistent weekly schedule they can count on with fresh daily content on your web pages. If you want to compare the top 3 mailing list providers, I linked an article for you below.

I certainly hope that my research this morning helped you to get up to speed on the social media platforms and how to use them. There are more great articles linked for you below. I really hope you will subscribe to the web site today so you can join me again as I continue to share what I learn with you every Sunday morning and of coarse with my featured interviews during the week right here on AVA LIVE RADIO. – Jacqueline Jax

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?

Monday: Marketing Tip of the day: Get to Know Your Web Stats
Today’s a great day to review your stats. I never go a week without taking a look at how I’m doing. On my blogs, I have daily, monthly, weekly and yearly comparable stats showing me details like overall growth, traffic and what topics people liked the best. I even get to see what countries I’m being seen in. Stats are so important on facebook and your web pages because they help you get to know your readers and give you specific insight into how your doing. If you get good at reading your stats, they can also give you direction into what kinds of topics and media are performing the best. It’s all about what your readers want to see from you and keeping them happy is very important to your growth.

Tuesday: Marketing Tip of the Day: Don’t Procrastinate!!
Procrastinating about your dreams won’t make them go away. Neither will it make them happen. Don’t worry about making wrong decisions. Instead, worry about making no decision at all.

Once a clear decision is made, the universe energies will immediately support your decision and doors will open guiding you with ways to reach your goal.

Thursday: Marketing Tip of the Day: A little love goes a long way
Don’t hide your love away, like the old Beatles song goes. Let ‘em know you care! Make it a priority to make your customers’ day. Learn their names, their kids names, or about their dog. Invest in your relationship. Personalized emails and phone calls to see if they need anything will speak volumes – your clients will feel more like family, and it’ll give them something to talk about! Soon enough, word on the street will be that you’re the only one for them. (Manta.com)

I remember reading an article in the New York Times in 2010 discussing the Internet’s phenomenon and the rise of amateur online bloggers in the media. In fact, Magazines, Designer, PR firms and traditional media are giving noted respect to top bloggers with invites to all the hottest events, free goodies and even hefty paychecks for their undivided attention. Even radio stations had to become Internet savvy with world wide online streams of their programming. And now hear I am, sitting at my desk overlooking the city with a cup of tea sharing my latest research with you in an era of “new media.” The Internet has changed the way we communicate and share information with each other.

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.

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

Marketing Tip of the Day: Internet Radio Tour

Radio tour

Jacqueline_jax_Video_liveI was just speaking with one of our music community members out in Canada and we were planning a strategy to help him break into the U.S Music market using internet radio like A.V.A Live Radio. Although you may not be aware there are thousands of internet radio shows bursting at the seems with online listeners seeking everything from new indie music in specific genres, to how to be a song writer, to becoming a better Mom. The topics are vastly diversified and new content is being created and consumed every hour. Many of the stations/ podcasts have thousands, or even millions of listeners and the content they create stays available online for ever mapping out it’s own piece of internet real estate.

As an artist, you want to take advantage of that open avenue that can deliver your music right into the ears of listeners within your sub-niche. Not only that, but most of the shows have web sites, like we do here at A.V.A Live Radio that will host your photo’s and buy music links for the listeners to easily find you. I talk alot about how to do this, what to look for when selecting stations and how to approach them in the A.V.A Musicians Workbook coming out this fall. Be sure to get on the mailing list so you won’t miss the launch of this amazing workbook that walks you through the step by step daily routines of developing your music career and building a strong, supportive and engaged fan base. Signup now: http://eepurl.com/vKMbX

Who is ready to plan an internet radio tour?
You should only spend time on promotional things once you have the following things in order:
1) Your music is perfect with quality recordings and at least one album released and ready to sell.
2) You have a smashing web site with your own .com for people to visit

3) You have set up at least one social media account in your band name (ie. twitter, facebook, reverbnation)
4) You have a mailing list established with a service like (wordpress or mail chimp) and the signup is front and center on your web site and all social media pages.
5) You have carefully thought out what you would like to say and how you can quickly and easily deliver your message when you are interviewed. This should include who you are as an artists, your latest news, upcoming tour, video or music release and your web site/ social media pages.

I hope I got you thinking more about internet radio and why it is an important avenue for you to consider, cultivate and add to your PR schedule. – Jacqueline Jax (Host of www.AvALiveRadio.com)

Writing Authentic Content for Your Blog, Website and Social Media Pages

Jacqueline Jax branding marketingI have found, the single most important concept to focus on when writing or expressing content for your blog, web site, youtube channel, or social media pages is to be “Authentic”. When you speak about something you feel passionate about, your most authentic voice comes out and that will make your posts far more interesting and effective.

Have you ever noticed that the most interesting articles are those written by people sharing a part of their real lives? You are drawn in from reading about problems people have solved, projects they’ve worked on, challenges they’ve overcome, subjects they’ve researched out of genuine interest, their work, their hobbies, their families, their vacations, their collections…. In fact, this article your reading now is a product of a topic that I have spent countless hours researching.

Here are some interesting things to keep in mind when striving to write authentic content….

1. Speak from the heart: I just love reading content that is written like a story. When a blogger shares from their heart, it’s special and authentic. Even if they aren’t the best writer, I still enjoy experiencing that journey with them through their heart felt stories. When a fashion blogger shares photos and then makes comments under each photo to share a piece of the story, it’s so much more engaging and worth subscribing to.

2. Share a personal experience: Include your personal experience as well as helpful information so readers can savor the journey and get to know you through your content. If you post photo’s be sure to tell the story along with them so the reader can get a better sense of who you are and why that photo is special to you.

3. Comment on a topic your passionate about: Being passionate about a topic is so important. It’s impossible to write without inspiration. Be sure to select your topics with care because if your faking it, people can really tell.

4. Be useful: Be sure to add detailed and in-depth information about your topic that will offer your readers something interesting and useful. Make your article even more resourceful with links to a myriad of obscure yet supportive content on the subject that may be hard to find and be sure to title the blog post with rich and descriptive key words.

5. Use unique images and media: One thing I love is to see original images on a blog. Sometimes it’s difficult if your blogging about an item that you don’t physically own but if you put a little thought into it, I’m sure you can find a way to make the images unique. Use fonts, collage apps, filters or even photoshop to create a signature look that will be just yours.

On my personal internet journey, I have stumbled upon many terrific articles written by passionate people. The articles that I have book marked and left comments on have not only educated me but introduced me to so many interesting people. As a result of reading and commenting on what they have each shared, I have found myself in the middle of a fabulous circle of people who share similar interests and in turn support my projects as well. In some cases, I have traveled and am able to meet up with these new friends. I hope you’ll comment and introduce me to your world as well.

Marketing Tip of The Day: Pick Up Your Marketing Pace

20130529-090458.jpg

marketing-tip-of-the-day-2Have you ever noticed that once Young the Giant picked up the pace of their now popular song, Cough Syrup, their record sales and popularity began to sore?

The same thing can be said for your marketing strategy. This year I have studied and spoken to many online brands in music, beauty and fashion bloggers, youtube channels, web sites, modeling, pretty much every category out there and one thing has rang true.

This has made a consistent difference in everyone’s marketing strategy. So the next time your feeling a little lazy, discouraged, or unmotivated think about this post. I can assure you that people are watching and listening when you post your messages, write your blog, launch a video or share your photos. But in this crazy online world of marketing you can just as easily disappear when you stop the stream.

If your a musician, your probably saying: Sure, but can I sell more than 5 cds per year if I out more time into it? Yes you can. I’ve been working with artists selling thousands of copies online every month. But let me be bold and up front with you. To succeed on the Internet, you must prepare yourself for the long haul and prepare to work hard attracting fans until the buzz hits and you take off. Even once it does, you will still have to be there consistently for your fans if you want to keep their interest and support. Success on the Internet won’t come overnight. You must have a quality web site and quality music to sell with something to say. If you take your work seriously, so will everyone else who follows you. Look at Taylor Swift, she doesn’t miss the meet and greets, she takes pictures with her fans, and she takes time to address them personally. No more excuses, step it up!

Help is on the way!!!!! A daily step by step guide is coming to help you with your daily music branding and marketing plan.

Hot Topic Tuesday: Top 10 Tips For Making a Viral Video

Hot Topic Tuesday How to go viral

Listen in to the radio feed : www.blogtalkradio.com/avaliveradio/2013/05/28/hot-topic-tuesday-top-10-tips-for-making-a-viral-video-1

Join host Jacqueline Jax and George Allen for a Hot Topic Tuesday discussion about what it takes to make a video go viral.. In case you didn’t already realize, viral videos are definitely what you should be shooting for when trying to build your brand and make yourself stand out from the crowd. If your super creative, then shoot for the stars and try to make all your videos go viral but to take some pressure off, let’s start with just one. If you have your own YouTube channel filled with great videos about your brand but your not getting the hits you need I have some fabulous tips to inspire you and get your videos competing against the odds.

1) Funny: funny is the leading trait of a viral video. Where other themes like cute, scary, weird and unusual may do well nothing inspires people to share like laughter. If you can make someone laugh, they can’t resist sharing that chuckle with their friends.

2) Eye Catching: the game is won or lost in the first few seconds so you’ll want to put your best foot forward in the beginning of your video to grab a viewers attention. Make it eye-catching and make sure it’s memorable.

3) Music- what’s a video without music? Even if your creation isn’t a music video, be sure to infuse it with music that supports the action. It sets the tone, supports your content, and keeps your viewer engaged.

4) Stunts: although very dangerous for novices to attempt. Stunts tend to do well. But let’s not get crazy. You don’t have to risk your neck for a stunt to be great. Enlist the professionals and only do what you know. FYI.. I am in no way recommending that you go out there and risk your life. Practice common sense and leave the really dangerous stuff on the green screen.

5) Reaction Videos on the fly: an honest and in the moment reaction makes a great video theme. Keep that camera ready for those opportunities when something is amusing. You may even want to plan a spoof or punk a friend. Just keep it honest and don’t encourage or support violence.

6) Pop Culture: Getting inspired by what’s happening in your own pop culture will always be a smart move especially if your theme has a shelf life. Although some pop culture references disappear quickly, many themes hold buzz for centuries and incorporating them into your video can work in two ways. 1- making your video more relatable to people who embraced that piece of pop culture 2- catching and riding a trend wave A few themes that have never passed and will always have a following are…. Star Wars, Star Track, Superman, Batman, South Park, The Beatles, Elvis, Ghost Buster,

7) Copy-cats: I couldn’t make a top 10 without addressing the copy cat ideas. Parodies, remixes, mash-ups definitely get attention when launched immediately after a viral video has sprung into the top spot. But if your going to do one, make sure you do it quickly. Once a video has achieved viral status, you’ll want to be one of the first to launch while the idea is hot so you don’t get lost in the mix or catch the video on its down cycle.

8) Originality: Most of the best videos that i have seen are born from original ideas. The concepts are simple and fresh being born in that moment the camera hits its subject. Seeing things through the creators eyes is what makes it so real, so incredibly interesting and fascinating to watch.

9) Chemistry: Many times when your watching a video that’s hilarious there’s a comical chemistry between the participants. This chemistry that exists in its natural state makes the video what it is.

10) Lack of Planning: Over planning can kill a video. Any time situations occur and people go back to try to recreate the situation, they take away the most important elements that make a video outstanding. There is no word for it but it’s a combination of my previous points I’m giving you here today. So keep your cameras and your phones on and in that moment, is really where the most viral videos are born.

Marketing Tip of the Day: Dealing With Negative Reviews

Marketing Tip of the day AvA Live RadioReviews are important. We make shopping decisions and measure credibility by feedback that we see online. You cannot please everyone all the time and even the best of the best receive some negative reviews. But did you realize that one negative review on your sales page can damage your brand and stop sales significantly. In this case, silence is your worse enemy. If a customer writes a negative review and there is no response from you, it can be interpreted that you don’t care about your customers satisfaction or concerns. Instead, neutralize a bad online review by contacting the customer privately to work through the issue. Meanwhile, proactively ask happy customers to write positive reviews for you.

Note: If someone has left you negative articles online via web page the best way to counter those reviews is to publish good content on the web to get stronger search results. Search engines will move most recent articles to the front of the searches so by posting newer articles you will move the bad reviews further out of the way.
