Book recommendation -Keep It Shut #drivetimechat

Just wanted to share a great read I’m listening to from Audible.  It’s called “Keep It Shut: What to Say, How to Say It, and When to Say Nothing at All” by Karen Ehman.

This book explores how to better control your tongue, knowing what to say and how to say it, and realizing when it is best to say nothing at all.

The book looks into what the Bible says about the many ways we are to use our words and the times when we are to remain silent. Karen addresses using our speech to interact with friends, co-workers, family, and strangers as well as in the many places we use our words in private, in public, online, and in prayer. Even the words we say silently to ourselves.

I found the book refreshing and it provided food for thought and a glimpse into the benefits of prayerful consideration of our words.

Which Social Media Channel is Best For My Business?

Social media has become an important part of marketing. More and more people are turning to social media to find products instead of searching on search en
Click here to read the article.

So my favorites are Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. It’s best if you can have a way to systematize your posts or integrate multiple platforms together.

For example, if you post on Twitter that post is automatically posted to your FB fan page as well.
Regardless of where you are marketing your business, make sure to interact with your audience and engage those who engage with your content.

Also, remember that the more they can get to know you, either through text or the best way is using video (live or recorded). I have to get better about increasing the videos I share.

Share on social media your choice.

Insights from my learning today – Friday before the holiday weekend

So I was looking at reviews of my upline leader Jordan Adler’s book Beach Money and the following are insights and takeaways I got from listening:

Always be building and expanding your network.  Meet new people, get their contact info, and find out what they need or are looking for.

At networking events, get a business card from the people you meet and take a photo with them, then send a picture greeting card to them after the event with a short note and provide solutions to their need or a resource for additional information.  Each business card can be worth a minimum of $50 in future business if you keep the relationship going.

Consistency is key.  Numbers don’t lie.

Attendance at company and industry events build belief and confidence.

Be a connector – connect the people you meet with the right tools, resources, or other people and they’ll thank you and remember you.

It’s not who you know, it’s who knows you. Be authentic, likeable and trustworthy and you’ll attract those who are the right fit for your business.
