How to Hold A Google + Hangout

How to Hold A Google + Hangout

 This is an amazing article from Social Media Examiner on How to Hold A Google + Hangout that I read the other day and I just had to share it with you all. Google + is the new place to be for many and the Hangout place is where many are doing business, sharing stories and generally having a good time. You can hang out with your buddies or your work mates, family or friends. It’s all there for you. I think it is an amazing resource for people who belong to MLM companies where they can get a group of people together and share the story or share the business opportunity.

This article takes you through every part of setting it up to how to invite it is brilliant and rather than me reinvent the wheel I thought it best that I just share it with you. So you can either click here on the link How to Hold A Google + Hangout or you can read this section below then head on over there later…..


How businesses can use Google+ Hangouts to connect with customers and colleagues, and how to get them to join your video conference.

3 Reasons to Consider a Google Hangout

Your prospects are already here! Video conferencing has been available for a while, but Google+ Hangouts takes it to where people are.

Here are some ways you can use Hangouts:

#1: Part of the sales process: You could invite people who are already in your sales pipeline to hang out. Not to put a high-pressure sales speech on them. Just to further the relationship.

To make it more intriguing for people to join, try naming the Hangout “Overcoming _________,” where the blank is filled in with a key problem you know your prospects tend to have.

#2: Office hours: College professors have standing office hours—times students can be sure to see them at their desk. Why don’t you? You could set up a standing weekly or monthly Hangout as a way to increase customer service or to keep in touch with your staff.

#3: Fireside chats: Everyone seems to want time with the CEO, so why not give it? “Town hall”–style conference calls have been popular in recent years, but they are conducted over the phone. What if you were to set up a standing quarterly time for people to actually hear from your CEO? And more than hear, they’ll be able to see and interact.

Hangouts could be used by colleges to communicate with incoming students, or alumni, or even current students or their parents. Or you could use this as a way for your board and investors to interact with the CEO between meetings. If you have a circle of “investors” and only invite them, they should be the only ones who see the invitation………

How To Create, Edit and Share Video In Minutes

How To Create, Edit and Share Video In Minutes

The reason most people don’t use Video in their marketing is because they don’t know How to Create, Edit and Share Video in Minutes, for some it takes hours. I know some videos I have put together where I am the “Talking Head” as we say, I have done anything up to 50 takes, it is so frustrating, and I am sure many of you will know what I mean. I remember a friend of mine taking “Take after Take” to get something perfect , that is enough to put anyone off doing video, especially if you are going to be the Star Attraction :-)

How ever you having to be the Star Attraction is not always how you need to do a video. There are so many things you can do with video. I have actually written another blog with a list of all the different ways you can use the videos you create so you can go over to that post later and check it out. Screen Capture Software 5 ways to use it.

Show new product
Be a comedian
Be your own singing star

Many of you will know of lots of people out there who got their start to Stardom through putting a video up on Youtube. It is completely amazing. I think of the many 100′s of students I have taught how to:

Build Websites
How to build Fanpages
How to find Keywords
How to transfer domain names
How to make videos
How to use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube
How to use a coffee machine (yes done that as well)

….so many things, all through video.  We just love video.  We need to use it in every part of our promotions… it does not matter if we are promoting ourselves, our brand or product or service we need to be using video. But as said earlier some people don’t want to use it because it is all to hard … but it’s not really hard.

Video is fast becoming the most effective traffic-generation tool online today… And YouTube is the top of the lead-generation sites. Search engines love videos, so it’s often much easier to show up on the first page of search engine results when video is used instead of text. People are 41% more likely to click on a video link in search engine results, than on a text link (like for a blog, article, or website).

 ”You absolutely MUST use video in your online business, or resign yourself to losing ground to online marketers and entrepreneurs who do.” states Mynders Glover, co-founder of “I could go on and on about ways you need to be using video in your online business, if you are serious about building a real business that actually makes you money, but I’m pretty sure you are already convinced that you have to use video, and use it everywhere in your business.”

I will be having Mynders on the webinar this Wednesday and I am so excited about that… here is some information about what we are going to cover and also Just who is Mynders Glover:

On December 14th, Glover will offer a free webinar designed to teach online marketers to create, edit and share their video content in minutes.  Glover will share his secrets to Instant Video Mastery while introducing a program designed to get results without huge investments of time and money.

This free webinar is open to the public.  Pre-registration is required. Details may be found by Clicking here

During the webinar, Glover will address commonly asked questions like these…

* Does my market watch videos online?”
* How does video marketing compare with article marketing for list-building and sales?”
* Can videos be a part of a business-building strategy?”
* Are there ways I should be using video… but I’m not?”
* How can I get great-sounding audio for my videos?”
* What should I do to get my videos to rank well in search engine results?”
* What’s the best software to use to create awesome videos – easily?”


 Mynders Glover has an MBA, and has been an entrepreneur almost since birth. After working at a job only long enough to qualify for his CPA, he went off on his own. He has created successful businesses in real estate and real estate development, nutritional products, seminars and consulting, corporate training, and in direct mail.

 Originally from New Orleans, Mynders has lived in the Durango, CO area since 1999. He earned his undergraduate degree from Virginia’s Washington and Lee University in 1976 and his MBA from the University of Virginia in 1980.

 Between college and graduate school, Mynders worked in the tax and audit practices of one of the world’s largest accounting firms, Peat, Marwick, Mitchell & Co., where he obtained his CPA certificate. He worked for others for only 3 years before going into business for himself. In the years since, Mynders has founded business, management and financial companies, a real estate development company and several Internet sites.

Mynders is the co-founder, with his wife, Deb, of  Business Building Shortcuts, an online business which focuses on matching “Product Creators” with “Affiliates” (product Marketers).



Below is a video that Mynders has done for you to show you how to use Using to Leverage Your Time. It’s a great video actually and you will see in the video just how Mynders is using video to teach you all about

Whats New In Social Media

Whats New In Social Media?

Whats new in Social Media this week. Answer: Lots :-)

The thing with Social Media is that it never stops changing. I guess that is what happens with things social.

Here is Wikipedia’s take on Social Media:

Distinction from industrial media

Businesses may refer to social media as consumer-generated media (CGM). A common thread running through all definitions of social media is a blending of technology and social interaction for the co-creation of value.[citation needed]

So I guess we take from that is if Social Interaction is happening then we are going to be in for an ever changing road ahead.

Here are some things that I have picked up over the week I hope you enjoy the different writers I have for you. Each title gives you a snippet of what the article is about so click on the links to see whole article.

So right below is a Infographic that will show you a step by step just through the How to do affiliate marketing maze. Of course there is more to it, like keywords and SEO so I have some info graphics for those as well. I will put the links below.

I hope this helps you through the Affiliate Maze about and will give you at least 7 step process.

How to do Affiliate Marketing questions answered

Now I know it all looks a bit simplistic but the thing is it is simplistic. You just need to follow steps and then it all comes together.

So in answer to questions above…

  1. where do I start?
  2. how do I find a product?
  3. how do I get paid?
  4. do I have to have my own product?
  5. can I make money with affiliate marketing?
  6. do I need to keep stock? 
  7. do I sell ebooks, software or physical product?

1. Where do you start? Find the niche, found out what you want to build your site around. There is a lot going on in the world today, people want answers to all sorts of things so go find out what people want to know, then provide the answer for them.

2. How do I find a product? In the How to do affiliate marketing infographic above there is a list of places you can go and find a product to promote so go there and see what you can find to sell.

3. How do I get paid? Well each place is a little different, some pay you into your account, some into Paypal and that’s the best way for me, some send a cheque. So read their fine print and find out what they do.

4. Do I have to have my own product? no you don’t just use someone else’s especially when starting out. Then down the track get your own product. Then instead of earning say 50% you earn 100% of the sales price.

5. Can I make money with Affiliate Marketing? Yes you can, you just have to do it right. It is a good idea to follow a system and I teach you a 7 Step System with the IMM Academy.

6. Do I need stock or a warehouse? No you don’t you use other peoples warehouses or you sell down loadable products. You can go and open an account at Clickbank and set yourself up to sell products from there.
