Attracting your true fans

Are you a musician or performance group who desires to gather more raving fans?

Well, keep reading!

Finding the words

We’ll help you find the most unique, high vibrational words (resonating words) that stir you deep inside and draw your most aligned and ideal clients to your business. #StirsTheSoul

But, you probably already know, advertising is more than words…

Crafting your attractive message

Yes, it’s true that most of us are:

  • Getting smarter
  • More tech savvy
  • More inclined to watch than get involved

Thus, with such a limited time to view new material, it’s no wonder that online videos have become all the rage. #ThinkSexy #VideoSells

But, we still crave Connection.

While most of us prefer audio and video to reading (due to short attention spans), sometimes the integral, intangible, ethereal depth within a marketing message is missed.

So, how do we know if someone, some activity, or some place is worth our time?

What if you could sample a bit of an experience before actually having to show up in person? And at a deeper level, what if you could get to know the person behind the activity or place in a meaningful way?

For the small business owners and entrepreneurs:

The multimedia advertising services we provide reach deep to gracefully pull in your dream clients. When your marketing messages and blog articles are tagged appropriately, you’ll be amazed at the increase in your readership, and ultimately your conversion rate.

Speaking of your increased readership and conversion rate, we test to measure the success of the new digital marketing messages (should you choose us to help you with your marketing) as well as the SEO. #AlignedMessagesWork

Example of blog readership growth

For the musicians and performance groups:

The eye-catching videos we create help you quickly reach new audiences to build a stronger and more loyal fan base. When your YouTube videos and Instagram posts are tagged appropriately, you’ll notice a dramatic rise in show attendance at your concert and shows. We’ll use current tracking methods to monitor the results.

Not sure this is for you?

I understand because I can be skeptical too of new things. And I love to research and give things a try before I buy. But sometimes, a leap of faith shows the Universe that we’re open to receive.

I have 30+ years in technology (in multiple roles: analyst, writer, and tester). My degrees are in business administration, visual communication and digital design. Thus, I know how to research, innovate, and test for successful results.

Soul-aligned dream jobs

Soul-alignment work = DREAM JOB

How would YOU love to work at a job that your soul was in alignment with? You’d be passionate about such work, wouldn’t you? Working at a place where you really felt excited and part of the mission? I bet you’d be ready to get up before the alarm rang. I bet you’d wake up and feel like you were playing all day while performing each task.

Now, if that were the scenario, wouldn’t that be your DREAM JOB?

What my dream job looks like

My dream job is to provide social media outreach, SEO, writing, editing, graphics, emcee events, or ANYTHING that helps to EXPAND ALL of the following: holistic health and wellness, acupuncture, chiropractic, expanding consciousness, healing our bodies naturally, hope, faith, nutrition, living foods, meditation & mindfulness, spirituality, daily connection with Omniscience, loving kindness, hypnosis, metaphysics, physics (think Nassim Haramein), and the nature of reality.

So, for starters I am launching my brand on Oct. 7, 2019 at the Women, Wine, and Wellness – Brevard Chapter event at 6:30pm!

Here’s your invite:

https://women-wine-and-wellness-brevard-chapter.square.site/s/shop

Why?

Because my dream is to fully embody and teach personal responsibility in a holistic way for consistently improving the health, vibrancy, and longevity of ALL, as We Are All Connected. This is the legacy I want to live and leave to my children and granddaughters. ❤️🦋🌀

I see everyone with the ability to possess a real passion for life, via integrating holistic health & wellness techniques into each day (in one way or another); I believe everyone can truly LIVE a wholly vibrant life!

I desire to live and work IN joy each day, using my empathic, intuitive, compassionate, positive, loving, caring, genius abilities and REALLY make a difference in people’s lives!

What’s stopping me?

I don’t think any one thing stops me, per se. I think splitting my energy to work a “day job” slows me down, but also, helping my husband market his original music, and playing “that game”, distracts me from my true calling–though my feeling has been that by helping him, building relationships, and being around lots of music (because sound is healing), also helps me to “not take myself sooo seriously” and allows me time to PLAY!

I do my own integral spiritual and physical practices daily by blending qigong, yoga, meditation, push-ups, squats, etc. into a morning routine that supports me mind-body-spirit, and then gives me the juice to align with my soul and Connect with others, on and off my “day job.” (Plus, I finally have a day job that directly supports our U.S. Veterans and when I focus on helping them, and saving the VA money, that brightens and uplifts me too!)

I could improve my sales skills (but only in a heart-based, compassionate way), and perhaps gain some insight into how to stay focused. Yes, I have taken an in-depth Stephen Covey course. So, I know how to fill in the slow time of my day with small actions, the “little rocks” approach to time management–and that’s helped me accomplish all I have thus far!

What I bring to the table:

I use Microsoft Office (which includes, Word, Excel, Visio, and more), various webinar and video conferencing tools like Skype, Zoom, and Google Hangout, and development tools of WordPress, Dreamweaver, Illustrator, Photoshop, HTML, SQL.

Yes, I am a techie. But, as an empath, I am a caring techie! ❤️🦋🌀☯️🙏😉

I also bring 33 years of research and analytical skills to the table, and when I daydream, I end up making little notes like these:

The last note I had leads me to read more about Dr. Aseem’s work: http://doctoraseem.com

For example, Wayne Dyer has passed on, and so has Louise Hay, but there are so many other people like Gregg Braden (Hay House manages Gregg’s customer service), Dr. Joe Dispenza, Dr. Bruce Lipton, Wim Hof, Nassim Haramein, Neale Donald Walsch (I know he has his son helping him with the tech stuff), Markus Rothkranz (does all his own stuff–I think), Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith, Chris Cade, Nathan Crane (does all his own stuff), Hippocrates Health Institute, Patagonia, Whole Foods (and other organic grocers), Gerson Institute, Gaia, Spiritual Cinema Circle, Ecoland organic clothing, Dr. Gabriel Cousens, Tree of Life Center, Barbara Brennan, Donna Eden, Dan McDonald, Byron Katie, Oprah (though she probably uses executive search firms–???), Tim Ferris, East West College of Natural Medicine (and other colleges), Integrative care institutes and practitioners, The Shift Network, Natural Awakenings (and other similar magazines), and much more!

All of these bright shining ones HIRE people and I don’t know what job boards or recruiters they rely upon to find honest and reliable help who actually ALIGN with them and their offerings!

I’ve also reached out to life coaches that coach clients on how to find their dream job. But where do they point them?

Who’s with me???

This site now has 1800 followers (200+ from our wonderful WordPress community! Thank you!!), so it seems the time is right. It’s exciting!!

Reach out to me! Perhaps this is YOUR Jerry Maguire moment too!

Thank you, to 201 WordPress followers!
Total followers—Thank you!!

We Vote with Our Dollars

Vote with Dollars

The older I get the more I see why it matters where we put our money. We vote with our dollars. Each time we spend a dollar on this or that, businesses profit from it. We can make or break a business by our shopping habits.

When we save, the money stays in the bank or under the bed not doing us any good in the moment but down the road (if we’ve stored it somewhere we are being paid interest) then it may grow into a larger sum of money and  be there for us to use at a later time. I’m not sure if it will be worth anymore because inflation seems to bite into whatever interest was made. And if you had it under the bed you’d end up with that same amount of money but it wouldn’t be worth as much as when you stowed it.

So, back to the point.

Vote with your Dollars

Spending money

Why spend money? Spending keeps people working. When you spend, others have the use of your money. And remember you exchanged your time for that money.

There’s a real relationship between time and money.

If you want to keep the economy moving – spend. If you want to slow the economy – don’t spend.

When you buy a car there is a ripple effect. Others benefit from your having bought the car. And the benefits may be direct or indirect. It reminds me of something I heard awhile back. If a butterfly flaps its wings on one side of the world, does it cause a hurricane on the other?

Support small businesses

Considering small businesses. If someone makes a product or provides a service I feel is good, I continue supporting that business. I will also tell others (word of mouth marketing) about the business and what excellent product or service they provided. I may promote the product or service provider on blogs, websites,  Facebook, etc. All of those good and positive words help that business grow. Conversely if I am not pleased with a business I will also talk about it – and like the butterfly flapping its wings on one side of the planet, it could cause a ripple effect, the likes of which, that business cannot imagine.

If that one negative customer influences several others the business will experience a drop in sales. Enough mad customers could bring down the business – maybe bankrupt is too harsh a word. But if you’re a business owner or service provider and you’re not doing so well, you ought to consider how good you are or if you’ve ticked off a few people. That’s why the old adage came to be – “the customer is always right.” Yes, the customer is always right. If you don’t think that’s true and you own a business let me educate you.

Dissatisfaction costs businesses money

You don’t want your customer to leave dissatisfied.

If you hear any hint of dissatisfaction you’d better step up and make it right. I’m sure you don’t want people blogging about your business in a negative way. And if you don’t care – then you’ve really got problems. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Some people are hard to please. But you’re in business and you need to strive to ensure your customers have a high opinion of you. You cannot control what they say about you but you will go a long way towards having them say nice things about you if you show them you care and will go the extra mile to meet or beat their expectations.

Animals are democratic

Have you ever noticed that the animal world votes in a democratic fashion? If a herd of 100 deer need to get to the watering hole, it’s the 51st animal who influences the whole herd to move in the direction of the water at precisely the right time. Check out the red deer study. I’ve noticed that birds of a feather also flock together – it’s not just an old saying. Have you watched a flock flying and notice how many turn, seemingly at the exact same time, then the rest follow suit almost immediately? Flocking together seems to be the birds way of voting and it is instinctual.

People are habitual

People are also instinctual as well as, habitual. Most people stick with others, whether it be friends, jobs, neighborhoods, cities, or such out of habit and comfort. We stick with what and who we know. Keep us happy and we’ll be around for awhile. Tick us off and we probably won’t feel comfortable and eventually we’ll leave. And we will probably tell others (in some cases a lot of others).

Making it work

If you want friends, customers, and good relationships be nice. Go the extra mile. Live up to your word. Meet or beat others expectations of you. Show you care. That’s what makes it all work.

Have a Magical Day

It’s seems like a very little thing. But sometimes it’s the little things that count.

I picked up a new tag line for my email signature space. I thanked the coworker (whom I’d copied it from) and let him know that I had decided to use it as well. Instead of “Regards”, or “Sincerely”, it was, “Create a Pleasant Day.” I used it for both for personal and business emails. Then, after accepting a role at Walt Disney World I changed it to, “Create a Magical Day” which, just played on the “Have a Magical Day” Disney slogan. They use it around the parks and we always ended conference calls with that phrase. I always thought it was lovely.

During a children’s program, that happened to be on TV while I was sitting with my grand baby, I heard the actors say something about magic words. Before that time, I’d just been thinking some random thoughts about how we really do create our days based on what we focus on. As the words “hocus pocus” were spoken I thought, Aha! Hocus pocus rhymes with FOCUS!

I’d been focusing on taking my daughter and grand baby back to the airport – they live in New Hampshire – and I knew I shouldn’t be spending any time thinking about that when I only had a few more hours to play with Jennie. Maybe indeed something magical was hidden in the words hocus pocus – were they guideposts to remind us that what we focus on, we give power to, thus we create?

What we focus on – that’s like something I recall from a lot of self help reading, “what we think about, we bring about” I believe is how it goes. And while studying energy work I’ve learned that where thoughts go, energy flows. It’s what’s behind ALL the intention talk.

So, when I sign off my emails, don’t think that I’m being all Disney, Harry Potter, or whatever. It’s just a way for me to remind myself (and maybe others too) that if we want to have a pleasant day, a day of pleasing and being pleased, a day full of joy or bit of bliss – then take few moments and focus on the positive. Think about what you’d like to happen, what might be nice if it worked out, instead of all the other seemingly endless things to nag or complain about. You know what you’re missing and I know what I’m missing but we don’t need to focus on what’s missing. Focus on what we have. Ah, that’s like living in gratitude, isn’t it?

World knows we all have plenty to be down about but what good does that really do? Thinking more pleasant magical thoughts makes me happier – and when I’m happier I bet there’s at least a few people around me who are happier too.

Why I had quit Facebook

So, the day I originally wrote this, the social networking site, Facebook, went “public.” As in, it offers shares of stock for sale on the stock market.

I was on Facebook for about two years. I thought it was all about reconnecting; sharing tidbits of life, opinions, and photos with old high school friends, college friends, family, and so on.

Little by little, I became addicted to those elementary games and, for a few months, enjoyed playing them.

I had tons of photos on my site.

And then, I posted a lot of opinions – sometimes causing disturbing rebuttals.

Being a computer geek (I met my husband online and I work in IT) I know how to set the privacy controls and all that sort of thing. But, eventually, I got tired of the fad and moved on.

Just like my parents when the old party line telephone was being phased out for a private line in the 1960’s. That’s all Facebook is. It’s a party line telephone!

Do you know why a lot of people moved on from the party line?

Wives were suddenly made aware of their husbands shenanigans. Husbands overheard neighbors talking about how annoying they were, mowing their grass too early on a weekend morning or maybe how loud their truck exhaust was when they drove down the street. Kids picked up the phone only to hear some of the seediest conversations of their lives!

AT&T did great business with the advent of the private line telephone for a reason!

People started realizing they really didn’t want to know what everyone thought of them, or what their spouses were secretly up to.

Anyway, isn’t gossip a sin?

So, I have a sneaking suspicion (and hope) that Facebook will eventually fizzle out the same way those old party line phones did.

It seems bizarre to me that Facebook started out as a private network, mostly for colleges – you had to have a college email account initially to even get started.

Now, you’ll probably think I’m a conspiracy theorist when I say this, but the day the announcement came out about Facebook taking funds from Goldman Sachs (about $450 million), and a private Russian investor (do we yet know who that person is?) that was the final straw for me.

I’m half way through a Masters in Marketing degree so I understand the whole marketing perspective of Facebook – and that they’re only beginning to make money from advertising stuff.

Believe me when that really takes off you’ll already be so addicted you won’t even realize how targeted they’re slick marketing will be.

So, for me when a company gets too much cash inflow I question if there’s something “a bit more than meets the eye” going on.

Who wants the data?

Who wants the photos?

Do they care who I know?

Who’s trying to gain control?

Since I had no way to answer those questions I systematically began deleting all of my posts (and it took awhile since I had to delete each one individually), deleted all of my photo albums, etc. Only when I felt like I had removed EVERYTHING that I wouldn’t want published in a big city newspaper, that’s when I hit the “disable” button.

Admittedly, I’ve been back on, yes you can enable your disabled account again if you choose to, just to view some photos that family or friends refused to email – I know they’re sucked into Facebook, it’s fine, I was there once so I understand, but it’s a pain to disable it – too many questions and crap.

So, I went back on it a couple of times.

If my family and friends want me to see their kids growing up process, they’ll just have to email – or do what I did. Pay to store our digitized photos online.

Everytime I reactivate my account to check photos my family or close friends have posted, I feel wonderful for a few minutes–until I see something that pisses me off. Then I deactivate the account again acknowledging to myself how much I loathe Facebook. UGH!

Bottom line: I think Facebook is a time trap, gut puncher, and time waster for the most part — and I’ve got more important writing to do. 🙂

UPDATE: After the birth of my beautiful granddaughter (and her parents subsequent decision to allow pictures of her to be shared on Facebook), I begrudgingly returned to Facebook. In fact, I even setup an “author page“. Call it hypocrisy if you will, but that’s my story and I’m sticking with it. 😉 I preach a lot about forgiveness, so forgive me – and I’ll forgive Facebook. Just be careful, kind, and considerate out there…
