Breaks In Integrity Don’t Matter, Right?

integrity

Small breaks in integrity don’t matter, right? Er, wrong.

Ah integrity..

In my mind, even the word itself sounds good. For me it brings up thoughts of ‘doing the right thing’, which has me nodding my head, thinking how much better everything is when we act that way.

There are various definitions of ‘integrity’ – for me it boils down to treating other people properly. Being considerate to others, allowing them to have their own opinion, to do their own things.

It means talking about them from a position of respect, saying nothing behind someone’s back for example that you wouldn’t say to their face. It means not harming others, or their property, or their rights.

It means working hard at what you do, even when no-one’s watching. If you have an online business, as I do, then someone is ALWAYS watching! And yet so many people act scammy online and have no integrity whatsoever.

I also believe that a key angle when thinking about integrity, is acting with integrity towards ourselves. If we look after our own opinions, our own goals, if we treat ourselves properly, we are acting with integrity.

All sounds great doesn’t it, all well and good! That’s because I think it IS great! When we act with integrity, we not only make the world a better place for ourselves, we make it a better place for others too.

If that’s the case then, why do so many online people act without integrity..?

That’s a good question, and it forms the basis of the point I’m making in this blog post.
We act without integrity when we don’t know any better, when it becomes difficult, when we get lazy and most of all online – when we get greedy..

Sometimes we don’t have the time, or life in general is shoving a load of stress our way. We see ‘overnight success‘ online every day and we feel we should have a piece of that pie too. At those times, thinking with integrity is not quite so easy!

There is no doubt, acting with integrity can be hard! That’s why we slip, that’s why we have those breaks in integrity. The small breaks, they don’t matter though, right?

Er, wrong!

integrity

The small breaks DO matter, for two reasons.

Firstly, it sometimes only needs a small break in integrity to have a big impact, either on ourselves or on others.

The wrong words at the wrong time, the wrong action at the wrong time – the power of these is not to be dismissed. It can take a long time to put right the damage that can be caused by these small breaks.

Online your reputation can be destroyed in minutes if your audience lose trust in you. Trust is a precious commodity and without it you’ll never prosper for long online.

The second reason that the small breaks matter, is that they are the little cracks in the dam. If we get used to the little breaks being acceptable, then the little breaks become the norm, so we can add new little breaks to them.

It doesn’t take too long before the breaks come together, and the whole dam of integrity collapses, and we just do away with the whole idea.

That’s not good, to put it mildly. When we do away with integrity altogether, the world becomes a worse place, a worse place for ourselves, and a worse place for those around us, and it’s fatal for our online ventures!

But I have the solution!

You’ll know by now that I choose to take the positive way of looking at life, so here’s what I think we should do about the small breaks in integrity…

In an ideal world, we shouldn’t have any breaks in integrity at all, but I know that none of us live in cloud cuckoo land, so we have to accept that breaks in integrity could happen.

The first way to deal with it, is to simply accept that fact, that the breaks will happen. The good side of the breaks happening, is that we see them as breaks, because that means that the break in integrity is not the norm, it’s integrity that’s the norm!

Once we accept that, we can then deal with it by getting annoyed with ourselves! I get really annoyed with myself if I think I’ve acted without integrity, either towards myself or others. I can find it quite upsetting.

However, I use that annoyance and frustration with myself to close the break! If we take responsibility for our thoughts and actions, we can decide to not accept the integrity break as the norm, but to decide to do our very best to not let it happen again.

That involves work, because it means we have to analyse what happened, and prepare ourselves to act differently next time. It can be an effort, but of course, to put in that effort is, in itself, to act with integrity!

I find this whole idea a key business and lifestyle issue. It may sound cheesy to talk about acting with integrity. But luckily I’m not alone in thinking like this.

My good friend, coach and mentor Rebecca Bardess has recently launched her Indiepreneur Academy which is founded on the principles of integrity and ethics.

But don’t be fooled in thinking that this way of thinking will mean you lose out in terms of success or money in the bank. Quite the opposite!

No BS Internet Marketing Training- Finally!

At Last! Honest Advice Replaces BS With Integrity And Wisdom.

 

BSThis is a business based blog and obviously I want to help you make more money.

I’m here to help, advise and support you in making the right choices for your home business.
But that’s only a part of it.
I actually care about you.

Wow! There. I said it.

It’s true though. I am a firm believer in the power of ‘attraction marketing‘ and I know from experience that if I treat you well then you’re more likely to stick with me and so we’ll both benefit from the arrangement.

There’s so much BS out there at the moment.

If you follow my advice or read my words then I want to tell you that it’s okay to have honest emotions and yet still be successful.

There is a right way and a wrong way to do business. You’ve all seen the hype-y over-the-top spammy marketing lately across the web. It turns me off. And I know from talking to clients that I’m not alone in feeling like this.

But there is a better way.

You know that I’m a coach. Well I also have a coach. Her name is Rebecca Bardess.

Rebecca Bardess is the real deal and she has been at the top of her game since the 90’s unlike many of the so-called ‘guru’ types who’ve come and gone a hundred times over. Google her name and you’ll see what I mean.

So if you’ve always wanted to get better at online business but have been put off by the BS and hype then her brand new Indiepreneur Academy might be the right fit for you.

Now I appreciate that top-level coaching might not be within your reach right now but that’s what makes this all the more exciting.

Her Home Business Authority Blueprint course is now live for a tiny fraction of her coaching fees. And it’s only a small taste of the no BS training she has got planned for this BRAND NEW venture.

It’s LIVE TODAY so move fast – pop over and pick up some free training at the very least!

You’ll be glad you did.

I hope you found some value in this post. If so please share the love.

Test It! The 15 Things You Must Test Regularly

The whole point of good copywriting is to boost sales.

Even if you write copy with the objective of getting more newsletter sign-ups, the entire point is still to boost sales. But, how do you know if what you’re doing is working? You’re writing, and hiring, and writing some more – but do you even know if all the work you’re doing is paying off?

The best way to know for sure is to test, test and test again. Here’s my (non-exhaustive) list of fifteen things you need to test regularly.

1. Your Headline – How do you know if a particular headline works over another? You conduct what is called a Split Test or an A/B test. Make two slightly different headlines and send each headline to half your list. Which performs better? Click the image below for a great free resource for Headline Winning Formulas.

test headline copywriting

2. Your Offer – If you’re not sure about your offer, try testing more than one offer. Like the A/B testing above, only change something small, and send each to half your list. Or if it’s a sales page, put both up, and see which performs better. (Win With Robin Top Tip – Make sure you document what specific thing you have changed so you don’t lose track!).

3. Your Copy Format – Are you considering where the reader is reading the copy? If your audience is reading on a mobile device, is the copy format effective? How do you know? Test it. Everything you do online must be mobile responsive.

4. Snippets of Your Copy – If you have a long sales page, you can take snippets of the copy and reuse it on social media or other places to see what the response to the words are.

5. New Products – This doesn’t mean you have to create new products, but instead test out new products such as project management systems, social media marketing automation, email marketing programs and more. Stay on the cutting edge by regularly spending a small time testing new products and tools. (Win With Robin Top Tip – This does NOT mean you chase after every bright and shiny object that comes along!).

6. Graphics – Are your graphics the right graphics to use for your particular audience? If you’re not sure, conduct more A/B testing. Change nothing but the graphics and see how it affects conversion rates. Graphics are critically important with any ad online so you must get this right.

7. Functionality – Of course, you should test how your websites function. Does the checkout process run smoothly for your customers? Is something hanging them up along the way to prevent making a purchase? Go ALL the way through your Sales Funnel. If you don’t know what a Sales Funnel is then ask me!

8. Audience Responsiveness – Are you posting your heart out on Facebook but no one is responding, even though people are reading? If you’re not sure why, ask them. Asking questions is a great way to boost engagement.

9. Accuracy – Your copy should be well studied to be accurate and honest. Don’t post false information either on purpose or by accident. Always walk in integrity. Check your sources and check your facts.

10. Complexity – You don’t want things to be too hard for your reader to understand. If you’re using too many big words, change them to small words. Speak directly to your audience, not over them. test

11. What’s in It for Me – Remember the fundamental test for effective copywriting. It doesn’t matter what platform you’re posting the copywriting on; your audience wants to know what’s in it for them. Win With Robin Top Tip – Use the 19 Word Rule

Tell them what you got

Tell them what it will do for them

Tell them what to do next

If your copy doesn’t answer that, start over!

12. Double Entendres – Sometimes double entendres can be funny and that’s great! But sometimes they can be disastrous. Knowing your Target Market helps a lot here. Test the water with something mild before you jump off the deep end. Be very careful with accidentally posting something that really means something else, especially if it’s controversial or dirty.

13. Clarity – One of the most important aspects of copywriting is to ensure that what you are trying to impart to the reader makes sense. You don’t want to accidentally offend someone with your words. Read and re-read, and have others test for clarity.

14. Above the Fold – No matter what medium you’re putting your copy on – whether it’s print, webpages, or social media, the important stuff needs to go at the top, or you need explicit directions to scroll down to read more. More important online than ever before.

15. Originality – Is the copy original? There are a lot of ways to test this out such as with Grammarly or Copyscape. You want your words to feel familiar to the reader, but you don’t want them to be copied. Here are links to two great tools:
Grammarly – http://www.grammarly.com/
Copyscape – http://www.copyscape.com/

In my humble experience ALL the top marketers spend a lot of time thinking about what to test in their businesses. They continually test everything down to the smallest tweak. They wouldn’t do it if it didn’t yield results!

For the very best resource on copywriting check out The Copywriter’s Guild.

test

Remember, if you don’t test a variety of factors you might be wasting valuable time and money on activities that provide no pay-off, or you might stop doing some that are paying off handsomely. Think about that.

PS:So we know that Success is rarely a straight line right? 

But getting your business off the ground in the first place is the greatest challenge…there are so many forces weighing you down and keeping you from gaining upward momentum.
Even when you’re picking up speed and finally have enough lift to start climbing higher, there will be various challenges pulling and pushing you left and right, making it difficult to keep everything balanced and on track.
But…once you’ve reached “cruising altitude,” things get MUCH easier.

Persuasive Sales Copy – Or Not Sucking So Bad

Persuasive Sales Copy

Persuasive Sales Copy

We’ve ALL made mistakes in the early days of our online careers, right?

Before we learnt that selling has absolutely NOTHING to do with overwhelming our prospects ’till they just give in. Yet I see people doing this today!

You know that way when you’re just so darn excited about your ‘opportunity’ that you can’t get past yourself in the process. I get clients all the time who still expect a queue of customers waiting for them the instant they hit the Publish button on their blog.

persuasive sales copy

 

The art of selling is all about understanding what your prospect really wants and then presenting them with the benefits of your solution and how it will impact their life.

 

 

 

It’s all about listening and asking questions… leading people with baby step commitments – to create what we call a “yes momentum”… answer and overcome any areas of concern they might have… and finally close them on the solution.

Without solid understanding of this process, it’s virtually impossible to succeed in sales or ANY business where you’re constantly in a selling situation.

And when you’re selling online, in print, through a video or anytime where you don’t have the prospect in front of you…you don’t have the luxury of asking your prospect a question, getting feedback and adjusting your presentation accordingly.

And that’s why writing Persuasive Sales Copy is so critical.

Your message has to be super crisp… with just the perfect word selection… anticipating the objections that your prospects have… and skillfully leading them with the same “yes momentum” towards the final close… where they BUY or JOIN your business.

This is what Copywriter’s Guild is all about. 

I guarantee mastering the art of the Persuasive Sales Copy will make a tremendous difference in your business AND to your bank account.

Win The War

win the war with gary v

If you are a computer repair salesman, and I tell you to make videos about how to repair computers, you might think of it as losing business. You’re probably thinking: “How does teaching my customers how to solve their problems for free get me more customers?” But the truth is this: you’ll get all the sales in the end. Gary Vaynerchuk

 

I just read this interesting and value-packed blog post by Gary Vaynerchuk, legendary social media leader and founder of Wine Library TV. He explains how he often leaves money on the table in favour of the long game. He knows he will win the war. You can read his post here.

It reminded me of a true story a good friend of mine told me a few years ago.

Let’s call him Jim. Jim had inherited a large timber business from his father after Jim had miraculously saved his father’s life when he pulled him free after he’d become entangled in an industrial band-saw. That was the good news. The bad news was that the business was struggling in a competitive market and he was hampered by out-of-date equipment and a lack of skilled staff.

But Jim was like me and had an entrepreneurial streak a mile wide so he took on an agency role with a Canadian Log Cabin company as he figured it was fairly congruent with having a timber business. He had a show-cabin built on-site and it looked awesome.

Unfortunately, the recession was starting to bite and Jim’s timber yard was miles away from any main population centres. After a few months no-one had bought a cabin.

It certainly didn’t feel like he would win the war at that point.

One day, at around 5 pm when Jim was finishing a gruelling day’s work, he got a call from a guy about fence posts. Now there is a huge demand for these in the countryside, naturally, but lots of competition and low margins so it wasn’t something Jim sold a lot of.

The guy wanted something special. An unusual wood that would stand out against the normal fast-grown soft wood standard products. Jim explained the various features and benefits of pine against larch and the costs of elder or beech.

Despite the time of day, the call lasted almost an hour. Becoming impatient by this time Jim decided to cut to the chase and asked him if he was serious about buying.

The man said,

‘Yes! You’ve convinced me on the larch wood.

I’ll take one thanks…!’

At this, John told me he just wanted to tell the guy exactly where he could stick his fence post. But he bit his tongue and agreed to have the single post ready for collection at 6.30 pm that evening.

He told me he was still fuming when the guy eventually turned up at almost 7 pm.

However, his frustration quickly turned to elation when the guy turned to Jim and casually said,

‘That’s great, Jim.

But can you add one of these wonderful Canadian Cabins onto the invoice too.

The one here in this brochure at $72,000…’

Success breeds success and Jim went on to sell quite a few of the log cabins and he never ever quibbled about giving advice for free, giving the best service he could and always creating raving fans whenever he could. So did Jim win the war. He certainly did! He sold his business a few years later and he now travels the world climbing mountains.

Now this is a perfect example of Attraction Marketing in action and it has become one of the leading methods of doing business online. I base ALL of my marketing on this principle. I started up an online health and fitness business and pumped out award-winning advice and support for an entire year before I tried to sell anyone a single thing. I now have around 10,000 loyal subscribers for that business.

Win The War Free 10 Day Bootcamp

That is why I love working with Elite Marketing Pro. They practically invented #attractionmarketing with Mike Dillard a few years back and they have gone on to sell $30 million of high quality training materials and resources. But every week they still provide top notch advice that works for free.

So come and find out more about Attraction Marketing and how powerful it can be. It won’t cost you a thing. And it might just help you win the war too.

If you found some value and motivation from this please share!

Business Coach? What Type Is Right For You?

What Type Of Business Coach Is Right For YOU?

business coach

It’s THAT Time of Year again, right?

It’s around about now that I get an upsurge in prospective clients, all looking for a business coach to kick-start their business goals and, this New Year, help them finally achieve the levels of success that they have dreamt of.

And I am proof that business coaching works. I have a coach. My coach has a coach too and even the highest earning, most successful people in the world will tell you that coaching works.

But there are many differing styles of business coaching which you should be aware as you search for a business coach.
It helps a lot to have some insight into your own personality to know what types of coaching will help you get to where you want to be.
The wrong type of coaching may actually harm your progress rather than push you forward.

business coach

Innovator

Coaches who are innovators have a system already set up that they want to use.
They are usually experts in helping businesses just like yours move forward.
They already know exactly what you need to do to get where you want to go because they’ve worked with your business type and industry before and they’ve worked out all the kinks.
But they’ll want you to do as you’re told, without much compromise.
There’s nothing wrong with that, as long as you have the right personality to trust your business coach to lead you to the place you want to be.

Trainer

Some coaches are teachers at heart and love to teach you how to run your business efficiently and solve the problems you have identified.
They may want to try different methods throughout the coaching process which gives you a chance to choose your direction more than some of the other coaching methods.
A trainer is going to teach you how to be successful, taking into consideration your own skill level and experience.

Partner

This type of coach sees themselves as a partner in your business and will work alongside you in a consensus-type manner.
You’ll thrash out the various issues you have and if they know their stuff they’ll use the right questions to direct you toward solutions you essentially develop yourself.
They’ll offer a lot of feedback, accountability and encouragement.

Leader

Often a trailblazer on their own, they’ve already done what you want to do and they know exactly how you need to do it to duplicate their success.
They’ll expect you to follow them and do it just the way they did it.
Of course, they’ve already made all the mistakes, so you’ll only do what worked for them, what made them successful. This can be an issue in the world of online business, however, where tactics can become outdated and useless very quickly.
They are going to give high accountability and check in a lot to ensure that you followed through.

Authoritarian

A lot like the leader, but more direct, the authoritarian business coach has their way of doing things and if you don’t do it their way, you’ll be asked to leave. ‘My way, or the Highway…’
They want you to be open minded to their authority over your business choices in terms of the coaching contract.
For instance, they may give you homework to do and if it’s not done at the time of your meeting, your meeting will be cancelled (but not always your bill…).
This works great for business owners who aren’t self-motivated and need that added incentive to get things done.

Motivator

This is often considered the cheerleader of the business coaching profession.
This type of coach can be a good match with someone who is self-motivated and already has a good idea of what they want to do (and even how to do it), but needs someone to push them forward and tell them they can do it, and should do it.

Experimental

Some coaches like to feel out their client, and based on the client’s goals they’ll experiment with different ways to reach the goal based on the personality of the client rather than their own personality.
This can work well for people who are sometimes self-motivated, but other times need someone to be more authoritative once a decision has been made about how something will work.

Emotional

There are coaches who are very good at feeling out your emotional level and working with and using that connection to get you to move through psychological barriers that have stopped you in the past.
They are great at building a relationship with you, and they use that emotional connection so that you won’t want to disappoint them and you’ll do the work that needs to be done to achieve success. Don’t worry; they care about you too – it’s not a game!
It’s just how their mind and personality works.

No one coaching style is right for everyone, and the honest truth is most of the time each business coach demonstrates one or several of these coaching styles, depending on the feedback from the clients.

I will always vary my style of coaching based on what the clients tells me they want and what I feel will benefit them the most.

 

But that’s why it’s extremely important to understand what you need your coach to do for you and what type of coaching you will respond best to. My advice is to use any interviewing or free consultation process to choose the right coach for you.

I still have a few slots available for my 6 week one-to-one coaching sessions and I have massively discounted them for readers of my blog. You can grab your guaranteed results seat HERE.

Beginner? No Problem!

Beginner? Then Traffic Authority WILL Work For You!

So many people, especially when they are a beginner, are put off taking action because they fear that they will fail.

Lack of action is one of the biggest reasons for lack of success.

Be like Cara here who was a beginner yet she grasped onto Traffic Authority, took action by following the simple steps and found success – in her very first week.

I have had clients come to me who had never made a dime online in YEARS of trying!

So, if you REALLY want to have an online business from home then take a look. It works! (I wouldn’t be bothered with it if it didn’t…).

I could share dozens of testimonials from other successful people just like Cara who are making a genuine income from Traffic Authority. So what about YOU?

Are you looking for a way to get IN – or are you looking for a way OUT?

Your choice, my friend…

Staying Power – Have YOU Got It?

Staying Power – And Why It’s So Important For Your Business Success

Staying Power

You’re probably wondering why I’ve uploaded a photo of a couple of old batteries, right?

Well, these little gems were taken out of the back light of my treasured old mountain bike yesterday. The clue here is in the word ‘old’ as I’ve had this bike for a very long time. It’s a Specialized hardtail which was top of the range when I bought it but would be unrecognisable alongside the current crop of mountain bikes.

In fact I bought it in 1993 for an epic 200 mile ride through The Outer Hebrides off the West Coast of Scotland. The bike was one of my first big online purchases and it came pre-fitted with a back light, batteries included.

The cycle ride was a huge success and kick-started my love of cycling. The upshot of that was that I then became a British Cycling Coach (remember all those gold medals…) and the founder of an award-winning health and fitness business. Through that I became an online entrepreneur and coach and this has ultimately led to this very post today.

Fair enough, you’re thinking, but what’s with the batteries?

Here’s the kicker.

I’ve NEVER had to replace these batteries before this weekend! They don’t even make them like this any more. And before you ask, I use all of my bikes A LOT!

That makes them 22 years old! Talk about staying power!

And it got me to thinking about online business success.

Staying power is a quality that very few people possess these days. We all want instant gratification and overnight results. We look enviously at the gooroo marketers who seem to live the rock-star lifestyle and we are quick to give up because we can’t emulate their success.

In my experience in business (I was also originally an accountant) both in the traditional arena and in the health and fitness field, there are very few ‘overnight’ successes.

Most successful business people and athletes I know have worked damn hard for a considerable period of time before anyone had even heard of them.

They were prepared to get up earlier than us, work harder and longer than us and when they got knocked down, they just picked themselves up and kept on slugging.

Most of what you’ve just read will not be new thinking to you, I’ll bet.

But what I want to say today is this –

Staying power is all very good – in fact it is essential – but I also know many online marketers who’ve struggled away for YEARS without any success, until they became my clients of course because my clients ALWAYS get results.

I am a firm believer in not giving up, but this has it’s limits for Pete’s sake!

So staying power won’t get you there on it’s own.

You HAVE to keep looking at what you are doing and be prepared to RECHARGE your batteries when the results are not evident. You know the definition of madness I guess – that of keeping doing the same old thing and expecting different results.

You need to keep FRESH and CHARGED in your life and your business.

If you’ve run out of juice and are just running on empty, going through the motions with your ‘hobby’ business then maybe it’s time to ELECTRIFY your outlook and get some new batteries – by that I mean new ideas, new ways of doing things and be prepared to take a few chances.

I know that ALL OF YOU will be struggling with getting enough people to look at your stuff.

It’s endemic in the industry.

And as more and more people get online it becomes harder to be noticed in an ocean of sameness. So you spend more and more on dodgy solo ads, SEO that doesn’t work any more and all the other outdated methods that just don’t cut it in today’s market.

But there is another way!

Start your own Traffic Business! Solve your traffic problems overnight, yes, I meant to say that, and then offer your solution to the other traffic starved marketers out there!
