Removing the Mystery of SEO
While the benefits of SEO are obvious, the path to success seems shrouded in mystery – especially if you want to achieve top search results for multiple keywords. The mystery of SEO can be daunting.
We live in a “microwave society” in that we tend to have little patience and want to see immediate results with anything that we do. However, SEO requires long-term goals and does not respond well to a “hurry up” mentality. Trying to achieve results overnight is simply impossible. A shift in mindset is required in order to reap the full benefits of SEO. One must not think of SEO as a daily task to be completed, but a daily habit. Certainly, there are elements that can seem task related, but overall, SEO requires your constant attention and effort to be successful. Continue reading Removing the Mystery of SEO

Many Facets of Viral Marketing

It’s All About Psychology – Building Relationships Pt. IX
Remember: People care about themselves first, then anyone else who seems to care about them too. So when you do things for the people who are giving you their time (reading what you write), they learn to value what you say and do things to benefit you so that you feel like continuing to do things for them. It’s not about you at all. It’s all about psychology.
What usually gets you in trouble is the fact that you’re thinking about yourself and what you’re trying to accomplish. That keeps you from seeing the fact that if you want other people to give you what you want, you have to give them what they want first. And again, I repeat, it’s all about psychology. Continue reading No Denying – It’s All About Psychology

Why It Is Important To Be Yourself … Building Relationships Pt. VII
Gedday, as they say “down under”. I’m winding down to the end of the posts on building relationships for the long term. But I feel I still need to go over a few things before all is said and done. Today I’ll jump right into why it is important to be yourself.
Another important aspect of running your own successful customer relations newsletter is that it requires you to be bold. It requires you to expect and accept the fact that some people are going to flat out reject you. If you can’t deal with rejection it is important that you find a way to cope with it and try not to take it too personally.
Trust is a result of people seeing you as a real person willing to share of yourself and not just an automated, cloned robot pushing out recycled articles and ads just like everyone else seems to do. That’s why it is important to be yourself. Continue reading Why It Is Important To Be Yourself
