“Today Is Yesterdays Planning or Lack Thereof In Motion”
Some time ago I was having a daily struggle with my life in general. One problem was coming from a decision made years early regarding an investment. This investment was lost. I knew this pass decision meant my monthly income from this investment was now lost as well. There is one thing I dislike the most and that is losing. There are no recalls from a bad decision. So I took full responsibility for the decision and put that behind me. I continued to build other avenues for investments. Through this incident I realized I must take responsibility for every outcome I was hoping for. It was at this point I wrote the following thoughts about this subject.
This loss taught me that my perspective has a profound effect on my daily outcomes. What will this day bring? What will I bring to this day? The grass may have to grow one day more or maybe not? As the before mentioned questions indicate we make choices as to what will be brought to our days activity. We can bring sadness, happiness, energy, understanding, enthusiasm, bitterness, complaining, and positive or negative thoughts. It is up to each individual. It's all about choices. It's about having a mind set. We do not have yesterday because it is now history. Today we can reflect on history to learn from it. We do not have tomorrow because that is the future. Today we can make plans that hopefully will make the future come together better. We DO HAVE TODAY, which in some part, is made up of our history and planning. Today will have its own unquiet challenges and set of circumstances beyond our control. How we handle these circumstances is in part due to our decision making now and before. Today is yesterdays planning or lack thereof in motion. Sometimes the day may start to shape up because of what others may or may not have planned. That’s OK! Life happens. Here we the individual have to empower ourselves to rise above the circumstances. Pledge to yourself to be positive. Be a builder. Build someone else up. Build a positive atmosphere in your circle of influence. Good things will happen and everybody will be happier. Take the following pledge. It will help.
I will empower myself to rise above the circumstances. I pledge to myself to be positive. I’m a builder. I will build someone else up. I will build a positive atmosphere in my circle of influence. My actions will have a profound effect on outcomes. My pledge this DAY, RIGHT NOW is to become a BUILDER. I will enjoy this day.

Subject: What About Other Media Strategies?
Since 2014, people spend more time browsing the Internet on their Smartphone’s than on their desktops. Businesses cannot ignore mobile as a valuable channel to reach their customers anymore.
Marketing teams are focusing on reallocating a bigger budget to mobile. But to be truly effective, mobile marketing requires the involvement of technology, and the cost may outweigh the benefit.
When starting a business, every dollar counts. How much should entrepreneurs actually invest in mobile? When making the decision, here are three options to consider.
1. Don't invest in mobile.
Take this risk at your own peril. Make no mistake - no business ignoring mobile today will still be alive in five years.
Why do I say that? Look at your customers, employees and friends. They all carry at least one mobile product at all times - their Smartphone. If a business ignores mobile today, a competitor will soon enough come up with a mobile offering. Since everyone is on mobile, that competitor will quickly grab market share.
Remember what happened to Kodak, Yahoo and Nokia? They refused to adapt to mobile and the tide quickly turned on them. Denial is someone else’s opportunity. It happens faster than you think.
2. Make a minimal investment in mobile.
What’s the minimal investment you need to make in mobile? The minimal investment you can make in mobile includes three things.
• Make your website responsive, i.e. mobile-friendly. The cost is minimal, but the benefit is significant because Google recently started favoring mobile-friendly websites in its search algorithm. In other words, not having a mobile-friendly website penalizes you on both mobile and desktop.
• Make your emails easy-to-read on mobile. According to Experian, two out of three emails are opened on mobile. Businesses that want customers to read their emails need to optimize them for mobile users.
• Optimize your mobile ads. On mobile, everything is measurable. For example, you are able to know things like, which ad resonates the most with men between the ages of 35 and 44 in New York. That’s pretty valuable if this group represents your target customers, right?
FOR MORE INFO
3. Invest more into mobile by creating an app.
My recommended starter investment is to add an active presence in the top 10 apps.
Nine out of 10 people use Smartphone apps instead of mobile websites so a website has significantly less reach than an app.
But by itself, that information can be misleading.
Many businesses jump to the conclusion that they need to cram their website into an app. This is a mistake. Remember the dot-com era, when companies hurried to build websites that mirrored their paper catalogs.
If you’re old enough, you’ll remember the barebones sitemaps that looked like tables of contents. Clicking links would open static web pages with lengthy product descriptions and no pictures.
Website visitors couldn’t read reviews, or go from one product to another to see what others had purchased or compare prices - let alone buy online. So few of them came back, and it became a self-fulfilling prophecy that websites were new line items on already fat IT budgets.
If companies build apps that look like cluttered websites, they’ll be left wondering: Do the benefits really outweigh the costs?
Having an app strategy works in specific situations, but it’s not for everyone. Consider this: every nine out of 10 minutes people spend on mobile is spent in the top 10 apps. And 50 percent of apps are never downloaded, not even once.
My recommendation is to maintain an active presence in the top 10 apps - social networks, like Face book or LinkedIn, messaging platforms, like WeChat and WhatsApp, and marketplaces like Amazon and Thumbtack.
So when does it make sense to have an app strategy?
An app strategy often requires an app for iPhone, Android, Tablets, Smart Watches, etc. Each platform requires a new product and a new team so it can get complex and expensive fast.
There’s likely a business case for making an app if any of the following is true.
• Your products or services are high touch. This means your customers buy from you often and what they buy requires a lot of support. Customers who use your mobile app are significantly more loyal than those who use a website. Having an app may mean more personalized promotions, increased sales and more.
• Mobile meaningfully enhances your current offering. In the past, people who needed a cab had to spell out the pickup address. At the end of the ride, they paid cash. Today, passengers’ location are seamlessly detected, and their payment information is often stored. It’s as if they no longer pay. This is when apps provide competitive advantages.
• You can offer new offerings that could not exist without mobile. For example, an event management company could let attendees easily communicate in an app during a conference. In that case, a mobile app may mean new revenue streams.
Mobile offers businesses many opportunities to reinvent themselves, but they need to carefully assess the cost versus the benefit.

--Your name -- or – Your first name only. (Probably not a good idea for an initial email) I had an email this week ended with the persons’ first name only. This person can do that because they are somewhat of a celibately. Most of us can’t do that. Another thing about this email that was different was the disclaimer at the bottom, it was longer than the whole rest of the email? What‘s up with that? I suspect legal?
Another favorite of mine to receive is the – Smiley face anyone of them, I like -- ( ;-) – Receiving emails with these symbols are uplifting. [:-) – Most variations on the smiley face made with punctuation marks are fine with me.
Some email platforms will actually insert the real smiley face when you start to type the symbols.

Do you remember this?
The birth of the Internet brought lots of change.
It changed many aspects of our personal lives and
as well as re-shaped the way business is done in
When I zip back in time and reflect on the dawn
of those changes back in early 2000 - 2001 I can
recall what is today some rather humorous
predictions of the time.
It wasn't so funny then, when some self-proclaimed
"experts" predicted the "end of shopping malls
forever". Yep, they were predicting that being
able to shop online would be the death blow to
conventional brick and mortar businesses and
shopping malls would stand empty forever.
Well, we all know it never happened and likely
never will happen. But at the time it was a
frightening thought for many business people.
Sure, the Internet did bring online shopping and
things did change, but your local mall is not
Which brings me to a more recent prediction of a
similar "doomsday" event that was sure to happen.
Not so long ago it was predicted by many that the
"smartphone" would mark the end of email - that
email is a dinosaur and no one will ever use it again.
The fact is, as the Smartphone industry took shape,
just the opposite has transpired.
Can you guess what the number one thing people use
their Smartphone for these days? They use it to
check their email! That's right, second only to
texting, Smartphones highest use is to check email.
Email is alive and well and I'll be showing you
how to use it effectively in your online quest.
Just like you can never replace a good old
fashioned stroll through the mall, you can't
replace the convenience and functional value
of email, both as a user and as a marketer.

WHAT MAKES AFFILIATE MARKETING SO GREAT?
If you’re brand new to making money online, affiliate marketing is a great place to
start for a variety of reasons:
ONE Reason: It’s easy to get started...
As an affiliate, you don’t have to create the products you’re promoting. You just
promote the URL of something that already exists. This is a lot easier than building and selling your own physical or digital product:
• You don’t have to spend time and money on building the product.
• You don’t have to buy an inventory to sell, or store it anywhere.
• You don’t need to figure out how to fill orders.
• You don’t have to handle customer support.
You basically get many of the benefits of having your own product, without having to
set everything up. And the best thing is... you may even end up earning MORE than the
product owner for each sale! Commissions of 70% are quite common... (GO HERE to get started).

What About Other Media Strategies?
Instagram has seen incredible growth since it was acquired by Facebook in 2012 – in fact it’s grown by 400%! And even though, it’s a relatively new form of social media, I barely remember a time when I didn’t have an account.
First, Instagram is easy to use, which is a big plus. Also, it’s not (yet) as ad-driven as Facebook, making it a friendlier option for those who prefer to spend marketing funds elsewhere. Since Instagram is visual, capturing someone’s attention on Instagram is much easier than on Facebook. Plus, the meaty part of this, is that it drives 58 times more engagement per follower than Facebook, and 120 times more than Twitter. That’s significant to anyone who likes numbers!

Creative Instagram Strategies
By its very nature, Instagram leaves lots of room for creativity. But, if you’re planning to use the network as a marketing channel, it’s best to put some strategy in place before leaping into the fray. Beyond the obvious items like having a solid bio with your URL, a great profile photo, and connecting your account to Facebook, I’ve pulled together several ideas worth considering.
1. Choose a theme for your posts – That is, develop a plan for what kinds of things you’ll post. By implementing this type of strategy, you’ll have a more targeted account rather than one that’s all over the place. Stick with your theme, which may be based around your core message, or related to a topic that you’re promoting. It also might have a color. Whatever you choose, let your followers (and potential followers) know right up front what they can expect.
2. Your Instagram Bio – While it’s obvious that you have to have one, it’s a good idea to steer clear of your standard out-of-the-box bio. Choose messaging that sets yourself up as an expert and drives attention to whatever you’re promoting, and that ultimately can help drive traffic back to your site.
3. Your Website - Make sure your site is optimized for mobile browsing since the large majority of Instagram users are on mobile devices. And, your URL should be in your bio, but it should also appear on every post, both as a watermark and either in the description or comments!
4. Simple, Meaningful Images – The average person gets distracted in 8 seconds, so it’s important to grab your audience quickly with clear, meaningful images that don’t require a lot of thought. They should be interesting, inviting, and completely simple. Since most users are mobile, there are some screen limitations, so text-heavy images are not ideal.
5. Posting Frequency – The more you post, the faster you’ll grow. Some of the biggest accounts post 4 to 10 times every day. That may be out of reach for you, but, at minimum aim for once a day.
6. Hashtags - While hashtags are recommended on Twitter, they’re practically a hard requirement of Instagram. And the more the better. 11 hashtags per post seems to be the magic number, although you can have as many as 30! And not all of them have to be included in the photo description, but work well in the comments section too!
7. @Mentions - Tagging another Instagram user who is authentically connected to your post is the perfect way to use this feature. (Simply use @+ their username to tag them in your post.) Don’t use this to tag random people or Instagram will flag and/or deactivate your account, but if the person is truly connected, it’s a great feature!
8. Location Sharing – Just like @mentions, turning on your location is a great way to boost engagement!
9. Great photos! – Having great photos is so integral to Instagram that it’s almost an afterthought to mention. Your own photos may work for some components, but if you’re sticking with a theme, consider using stock images, whether from a paid subscription-based site or royalty-free Creative Commons Zero licensed images – like those from Librestock.com.
10. Customized images – After you’ve found images that work for you, you’ll want to customize them with something to make the image your own. Perhaps a product title, a quote from someone famous, a simple product review, or even a teaser/promo for an announcement. Regardless of how you customize it, be sure to include your logo and/or URL so that, should your image find its way out of Instagram and into the wilds of the Internet, your fans can find you easily.

So ultimately, Instagram is a great place to be for anyone looking to market anything! It’s a spectacular tool for reaching new audiences and new demographics. Plus, there is room for so much creative thinking, that it’s almost certainly worth your while to give Instagram a shot. With a little strategy and some great photos, you’ll see what it can do to boost your marketing efforts.
