Channeling Hummingbird Vitality for Your Business

Channeling Hummingbird Vitality for Your Business

Channeling Hummingbird Vitality for Your Business I don’t know about you, but watching the attached video of hummingbirds feeding at an artificial nectar station is not only enthralling but makes me wish I could move that fast and accomplish so much in my own business. In fact, the Aztec people revered the hummingbird for their extreme energy, ability to work at such a fast pace, and for their overall vitality. When you think about it, these are also great qualities to have when operating your own business. Every successful entrepreneurial adventure requires a level of vitality and stamina to effectively handle the stresses and requirements inherent with running a business. Phone calls; emails; follow-ups; putting out the occasional fire; keeping up with the finances – you name it, every successful entrepreneur has a lot on their plate.     The hummingbird is actually a voracious bug eater while also maintaining a rapid daily pace. As such, their ability to find and feed on nectar is critical to supplying the energy they need each day. In business, it is easy to get off-track with the non-business functions important to maintaining your own physical energy. Healthy diets, regular exercise, and adequate sleep are all critical to allowing you to build on and maintain an active daily pace. Plus, taking care of yourself physically helps nourish the brain to function at a higher level, enabling you to quickly resolve issues that inevitably pop up, and be more creative in planning strategy. Additionally, while I doubt highly that hummingbirds plan schedules, keep notes, and track performance, their ability to accomplish so much at such a rapid pace serves as an inspiration for what CAN be accomplished if you are well-prepared, have an action plan for each day, and focus your energies on income-producing activities. Each day, and once per week, you must write down the tasks and objectives for that day, and week, and prioritize them not only based on their importance, but also with an eye toward efficiency. For example, a certain task may not have as high of a priority as others, but may be easily accomplished when combined with doing another higher-priority task. Keeping an eye on task-handling efficiency will allow you to accomplish more in a shorter amount of time. Structuring each day with an action plan and schedule that allots a set amount of time for each major...

Create a Facebook Business Page That Crushes Your Competition

How to Get Thousands of Likes to Your Facebook Business Page With over 1 billion users worldwide, generating over 3 billion likes and comments per day, it is impossible to ignore the vast market potential that a Facebook Business Page has for small and large businesses today. If you are looking to start a business, or expand your market reach by tapping into the massive potential your Facebook Business Page can generate, you’ve come to the right source. The techniques and resources presented here can be used to create both a Facebook Fanpage and a Facebook Business Page. The concepts are the same for both, with the only difference being the message and target market. Are You Ready and Excited? Okay, here is the summarized version. Once you have decided on your niche, and create the Facebook Business Page, then: 1)  You create some initial posts and content to create value for the new fans that arrive. 2)  You research and make a list of Facebook Business Pages, Facebook Fanpages and FB Groups that are related to your niche. 3)  You use a new tool (that I will share with you below) to extract the FB ID’s for each user in those groups and fanpages. 4)  You import that new list of user ID’s into the Facebook advertising section called “Custom Audiences”. 5)  Now you can advertise directly to those highly engaged and targeted people, for pennies on the dollar. 6)  You use another tool (that I will share with you below) to automatically created dozens of versions of your Facebook ads, so that you can split test and see which ones convert the best. 7)  Once you find ads that are converting fans at the lowest rates (ideally around $0.01 per new like), then you stop the other ads, and scale up the ones that are working very well. 8)  As new fans come in to your Facebook fanpage, you make sure to post at least once daily, at the right time each day, and share something that has a chance to go viral (which I will share with you below). 9)  Even though you pay for your initial engaged fans, they do the viral marketing for you, and your Facebook Business Page starts to grow like crazy, into the tens of thousands of fans, without having to do any more targeted pay per click campaigns 🙂 There...
