Life’s not All about work.

Life’s not All about work.

Being self employed allows me to do many things. Firstly I sacked the Boss many moons ago and there will be no going back there. I am working towards the dreams of my wife and I now, not providing wealth for someone else !

I consider myself blessed because I love all three of my businesses, whereas I know that some people hate the one job they have. I can also decide when I work, to my own timetable and are not dictated to by someone else. And, if I fancy the afternoon off to go down the beach then I do just that, because life’s not all about work.

And some days my daily commute last about 12 seconds. That’s right, the time it takes to travel from the bathroom to the office is 12 seconds – the office of course being on the same floor in our house.

But do you know, I’m nothing special. All I have done is found that I can make money on the internet quite simply. And by showing others how they can make their dreams come true, them my dreams are becoming a reality.

Brand Yourself On-line

Published by:

Hello,

To brand yourself on-line is no different to working offline in any other professions. People will come to you because of what you provide and how you can help them. This is why you need to establish the ‘know, like and trust’ feelings with your customers. There are two ways of doing this on-line: one way is by using video marketing: the other method is by creating a free about me profile. You can find about me by going to http://about.me

This will take you to a page that looks like the image below

Once you are on the page you can then set up your free page which will let you brand yourself in your chosen ‘niche’ profession, interest or marketplace.

So how do you brand yourself on-line using a http://about.me page ?

First of all you need to create an account.  This ideally needs to be in your own name (one of the major must haves, to establish ‘know, like and trust’ on-line is using your own name) and then you follow the steps. Pay particular attention to the biography section as this section is your chance to sell yourself. Remember, this is about how you Brand Yourself On-line.

A good tip for this section is to be to the point, giving the ‘sizzle, not the steak’. Highlight how you have been successful on-line in your niche. The reason for this is that you want to make people come to you as a ‘guru’ in your chosen field. Underneath your bio, you can add all the relevant links, which help to brand yourself on-line.

Here is a link to my about.me page. It will give you some idea of the sort of content to write. Essentially though you need to write as you, letting your enthusiasm come through.

A Blog about Blogging

Published by:

Until recently I never knew how powerful blogging could be. It was just something people did to entertain others who ‘followed’ them, with content of low importance or just noise from people who wanted some attention.

However, now I have been shown how powerful posts can be, especially when integrated into other areas of interest or business, it’s amazing the response a few well chosen words can produce.

As you will see, what I have posted is diverse, touching on my passions and my businesses. And therein lies the power of blogging because you can publish whatever you want onto the internet,  with whatever content you so desire.

From a business point of view, it’s a very powerful tool. You can not only reach existing customers but you can generate interest and potential business from new customers. From the content of your posts you can demonstrate that you know what you are doing and your level of expertise. Followers can get to know you before they ever meet you and can refer you others with the click of a button.

And, there are ways to publish one blog and have it sent to any number of places at the same time, thus reducing the time needed to reach your audience. So if you are reading this on the net, facebook, LinkedIn, about.me, Twitter or any number of other places, I only wrote it once.

So, write with passion and knowledge as there is a whole world full of people who you can reach out to.

Happy Blogging
