The Power Of Celebrities In Small Business Marketing

If you own and operate a small business, then you are missing the boat unless you are using celebrities in your small business marketing. Some may think this is silly? Some may not be too keen on celebrities.

For the savvy, this little technique is pure gold.

Let me explain this further.

Small Business Marketing and Celebrities:

I’m shocked.

That so many small business owners miss using celebrities in their marketing. No, I’m not talking about paying a boatload of benjamins to hire an A-list actress. Or shelling out bukoo-bucks to get the latest teen heart throb to plug your services.

That’s what big and bloated companies do.

What I’m referring to is cleverly piggybacking off celebrity events to drive your sales.

It’s easy to do.

Take Jimi Hendrix for example:

Did you know he was born in November?

Or that he keeled over in September?

Hmmm… how could you use these two dates to drive your business?

Let’s see…

How about throwing an event that pays tribute to either of these dates? Invite all your current customers. Have them bring a friend. Offer some free food and drinks. Give them a tour of your business. Collect their contact information. And then send an irresistible offer to party guests that have never tried your business.

And presto, you’ve just used Jimi Hendrix to grow your business.

Think that’s too easy?

It is easy.

Nobody said using celebrities had to be hard.

And what’s cool is every month there’s a celebrity opportunity waiting to be used in your dentist marketing. Where can you find these events? How can you use them?

Let’s answer these questions:

1. Celebrity Birthdays.

Every day there are dozens of celebrity birthdays. Do you know who’s born today, or how you can use a celebrity birthday to promote your product or service? You don’t have to say the celebrity endorses you. And do not put words into the celebrity’s mouth. But what’s wrong with throwing a sale all because your favorite celebrity has a birthday?

2. Celebrity Deaths.

Same goes for when a famous person died. Why not commemorate your favorite celebrity by offering a special “one day only” deal on the day they passed away?

3. Celebrity Milestones.

When did a famous movie get launched? When did an album go platinum? When did a famous author complete a book? These are all celebrity milestones you can use in your small business marketing.

Just look for opportunities.

And have fun.

Want to know why this stuff works?

One word:

Attention.

Getting and keeping your prospect’s attention is like trying to capture Tyrannosaurus Rex with a mayonnaise jar. And since people are fascinated with celebrities… this solves the biggest problem you’ll have in your small business marketing… GETTING ATTENTION.

How to Be a Six Figure Earner With Forever Living MLM Business

You may be here because you are looking at joining Forever Living. Or maybe you are here because you already are part of them and you are searching for strategy to build an income with forever home based business. Well, you’re have come to the appropriate page. In other to properly see if forever living is a great mlm company to join, we are going to examine the leadership of the company, the merchandise that they company is marketing and finally the training system which the company integrated for the distributors to reach their goals.

Forever living was started by Rex Maughan in 1974. As the name meant, he was seeking a business idea which will lead to better living and financial freedom. Several years later, this man has grew the company into 9.3 million distributors in over 140 countries world wide. The fact that he started from day 1 and he has the multi-level marketing experience himself is a huge plus. I mean, this company has been around for more than 30 years. We can easily both agree that the leadership of Forever Living is not a problem.

What we have around nowadays are new Multi level marketing companies which were started for just the profitability reasons. I realize we’re in business to make money. When owners without having multi-level marketing experience are confronted with decisions which may favor their distributors or increase their pocket size, most of the time, they’re just centered on their pocket size. That’s why number of these company usually are shut down after a while.

Another crucial aspect of Forever Living you have to consider before you decide to join up with them would be the marketability of their products. Forever Living markets products like Forever Nature’s 18, Aloe Vera Ge, Aloe Berry Nectar, Forever Aloe Bits n’ Peaches, Forever Lite Ultra, Forever Lite Ultra, Forever Lean, Forever Bee Pollen, Forever Aloe2Go, etc. As you probably know already, these are a healthier lifestyle products.

If you’re acquainted with any one of our reviews, you would realize that we aren’t a major fan of MLM companies that market consumable products. We are in a tough economy period. It is very crucial that the products that you market are necessities. Quite simply, if people lose their job, would they still purchase from you? Unfortunately, Forever Living products do not necessarily belong to this “necessity ” category.

How to make money with Forever Living?

To make money with Forever Living business opportunity, there are specific skills that you have to master and be great at. Should you master these skills, you’d probably be at the least a substantial earner in the MLM company.

You have to master the art of marketing. While i say Marketing, We are not referring to marketing Forever Living products. Should you focus your entire energy into selling the Forever living products, you will not make any substantial money inside your MLM business. Your job is not selling. You’re not a sales associate or sales rep. You need to learn to market yourself. Multi level marketing is known as a people’s business.

In other word, you’re the actual product that folks are buying. Your prospect must believe that you are a leader. They have to see you as someone that can lead them to financial freedom land. What all these mean is that you must have value that you are offering. The only technique you could have value to provide anyone is by regularly adding value to yourself. You add value to yourself by reading books, listening to audio tapes, attending seminars. There are many videos on YouTube. Work on yourself.

Another crucial skill that is equally as essential like first one is the ability to generate at least 30 leads per days. As my mentor explained, when you are regularly generating 20 leads each day, you’re a six figure earner. As a MLM professional (Not sales associate), our obligation is to speak to people on the phone and interact with them. That is called prospecting. The greater you are at this, the faster your business will grow.

Generating 30 leads per day has become super easy during this age. You will need a web-based lead generation system. You must leverage the world wide web. You can find billions of people searching the internet everyday looking for what you really are selling,. You are selling a dream. They are your targeted market.

The thing is that we endeavor to build multi billion dollar business with our family and friends. That is simply not feasible. Because they aren’t our targeted market. They love us and we love them. However, that does not always mean that we want or should want them in our business. If you’re lucky, you may sign few people up out of your friends and family. But the reality is usually that the momentum that you receive from that can not last. You should discover ways to constantly generate no less than 30 leads every day on the internet.

How to Survive in an Alternative World at Roughly the 19th Century of Development – Rex Knight Does

Nitro Wild – by David C. Brown. ISBN 978-0-9831907-9-0. Published by the author, 2017. ($12.99 from Barnes & Noble, paperback edition). Reviewer received book from Author as pdf-book.

David Brown has composed an epic alternative fantasy history tale of the 19th Century.

Rex Knight is the protagonist. From Rex’s mysterious transport from Earth through his first few years on Erden, the inhabitants’ name for their planet, he struggles to survive, thrive, and finally succeed in great ways. Most of the story is related from Rex’s viewpoint.

There are other transported races and groupings of people. The Wapiti spoke a lingua franca that was primarily English, German and some of the indigenous peoples’, the Clovis, own language. This could support other transports and some indigenous groups, but there is also an alien, non-human race called the Ichneumons who rule a substantial part of the continent that appear to be much like 19th century North and South America.

The details of the planet, civilizations and governments here are sprinkled sparingly throughout the story’s development. The Ichneumons are vying for control of the world with the mighty Prussian empire. The area that conforms roughly to the Eastern United States is controlled by the Prussian Empire. The remainder is largely controlled by the Ichnemons. These two empires are at constant conflict for control of this continent. Meanwhile, the European and Asian equivalent continents are split between the Prussians and their allies and the Mongol tribes that are constantly restless if not openly attacking on the eastern borders of Prussia.

Historically, the Ichnemons have conquered and obliterated most of the indigenous population. The Wapiti and the Clovis have avoided such a fate by aligning with the Prussians. That and the rugged wilderness terrain of their area made it much more difficult for the Ichneumons’ Emperor, Rakakonda, and his troops. Since most of the contact had been through attempts at conquest and other forms of war, there is no love lost between the groups. The third major power group here is the slave owners who usually held great cotton plantations and maintained them with slave labor.

The Prussians are entering an Abolitionist time and many established institutions are upset, but specifically the slave trade has been discouraged and then outlawed throughout the empire. This creates another group fighting to control its own destiny. These plantation owners want to maintain the status quo for slavery, fearing that they will be bankrupted with any change.

The plots and the intrigues rival any power in 19th century Earth for sure. This all contributes to the complexity and different perspectives of the narrators. It also makes for a very intense and complex plot.

The format is chapters broken into sections where perspective changes between several narrators.

There are too many characters to describe here, but the most prominent are Rex Knight and his partner, Amy Caroom. Amy is wanted, dead or alive, by her own father, Purnell. From this humble beginning, there are characters numerous and varied. Most do not warrant mention as they pass in and out of the narrative, but they come in, are developed enough to be believable and then move on out of the perspective of the particular narrator.

One of the main difficulties is the incorporation of the alien race as main personnel involved in all the war, the political intrigues and even the antipathy between the slave owners and the Prussian Empire that holds sway over their area.

The plot weaves in and out of focus. The characters move on and off stage. The leaders of the groups and such, keep busy with political and actual problems while interacting well making the plot even stronger.

For lovers of alternative reality and historical adaptations of culture, science and creatures would love this book and it is easy to maintain interest. Since this is the first of a series of books from a relatively prolific author as Brown, all can look forward to more coming from this fertile mind.

5 Stars.
