10 Hot Marketing Tips Straight from Joint Venture Alert Live in Orlando

I just spent the weekend in Orlando and had the most amazing time. I met some fantastic people and was able to pick the brains of so many wonderfully skilled and caring people.

Having the skills without the caring doesn’t matter.  I don’t know about you, but I’d rather have a drunk derelict who would give his life trying to save mine administer CPR than a triple PhD who’s motivations are purely selfish.

Without further ado, here are some quick tips on improving your marketing from some of the top marketing folks around:

Marketing tips summary:

Adam Urbanski – Take a flip cam or small camera to live events, such as a networking event, conference, or training conference for your industry.  Record video segments like the one above and distribute them to convey value to your clients.

Bob Jenkins – Use teleseminars in a way that connects you to your audience and leverage those teleseminars many different ways, such as products, blog posts, articles, and promotional giveaways.

Carrie Wilkerson – Attaining success through M & M’s: Mindset, Mentoring, Masterminding and Massive action.

David Preston – Pull out the yellow pages, find websites without lead capture, and help them install lead generation tools.

Coach Deb – Get more things done in less time by cloning yourself, such as leveraging software which helps you get more done without even being there.

Mark Shilensky – Be authentic with your audience, share from your heart and give them everything you’ve got.

Felicia Slattery – Start speaking to market your business.  Think about the 3 questions you get asked the most and turn it into a presentation.

Willie Crawford – Conduct an exclusive interview of your affiliate partner’s product about the 10-15 benefits of that product.  Transcribe that interview, distribute the PDF far and wide.

Melanie Benson Strick – Make sure you outsource your marketing to those who can do the work better, faster, and cheaper than you.

James Wedmore – Use Video as much as you can, whether you get an inexpensive flip-cam or something more expensive, make video part of your daily routine.

Erica Douglas – Talk to your clients on the phone or in person about their needs and actually listen to their answers.  Follow up with a phone call or a personal letter thanking them for their time.

Which of these tips helped you the most?  How and when will you begin using it?

Hey Daiv, this is a great video that Adam put together. Thanks for sharing it with others, and putting some text snippets together.

And thanks for sharing some meals and great ideastorms throughout the weekend (including some mediocre epandas).

Some thought’s on Marketing and advertising

General Advertising for Contractors: You the Contractor, advertise in a magazine, Newspaper, radio, television, or a billboard, and hope that a Homeowner will see or listen to the ad, need your product, and call you right away.

Directional Advertising for Contractors: The Yellow Pages, Internet ads, Google Adwords, Internet Directories, Blogs, Contractor Referral Services…
Do you think like your prospects? (HOMEOWNERS)
1. Can you name the last full page ad you read anywhere in the last hour, day, week?
2. Can you remember an ad you heard on the Radio in the last hour?
3. Do you remember a Truck Side ad you saw on the way to work today?
4. Can you name a Billboard you saw in the last hour?
5. Can you name one ad right now, from this year’s Super Bowl?
6. One last question: When was the time you sat down and wrote a Glowing Review for a Contractor anywhere on the Internet? (Except for your Company) Homeowners don’t either. The Contractor Referral services will tell you that homeowners are peeing in their pants to write reviews about businesses, no they don’t , go take a look at any of the yellow page directories on the Internet, there are contractors that have been there for years, and they don’t have any reviews unless someone is cussing them out for whatever!

You’re a Business owner: So you’re really paying attention. How many did you get?
Homeowners miss them all: They must not be paying attention!
All your prospects: Tuned out the endless scheming of marketers years ago, just like you and I did. When they do need your services, and they will.
You had better be right in front of them, or you are out of luck!

This is a little off topic but why can’t Twitter figure out how to make money?

1. They could do some real tasty watercolor if you will ads behind the areas where we’re typing our blah, blah, blah, and make money today instead of borrowing another 35 million!
2. They could simply put a business’s Logo over to the right of our Post!
3. They could ask us if we wanted our Logo to the right of our Post! I know I would!
4. They could charge all the addicts like me $5.00 a month! I’d pay it!
5. I could keep going forever so I won’t, I wish they’d let me in the Boardroom for an hour or so!
Just some thought’s, I’d really like to hear someone else’s Idea’s
