The “Social Gathering Power” of Reunions

TSS ReunionOne of the most fundamental ways to stay united with your colleagues and friends is through the power of Reunions.

Unlike seminars or workshops, Reunion events are not episodic and thus create a greater sense of community and unity among the participants who attend.

If you’ve ever thought of hosting a conference, workshop or seminar, think instead of tapping into the continuity power of what a Reunion can bring to you and your tribe.

Reunions can be held weekly with professional networking groups like what BNI members do throughout the world, or monthly with private mastermind groups.  They can even occur every 60 days such as CEO Space gatherings or annually such as my Teleseminarian Reunion … even every decade like high school reunions.

The time of year or frequency isn’t as important as the gathering power that Reunions create. When I say gathering power, I mean building the sense of belonging or feeling of unity espoused by the members of your community.

And whether those communities are twenty or two-thousand members strong, there are 3 key advantages that Reunions participants have over attending episodic workshops or seminars.  These are the 3 unifying elements that espouse more social gathering power:

  1. Unique language or vocabulary
  2. Unique community or culture
  3. Unique facilitation or leadership

7 Reasons to Repurpose Twitter Articles

twitter, article marketing, social article marketing, jeff herringIf you are into Article Marketing and are not using Twitter to repurpose your articles, you are missing out on a flood of good stuff.

With that notion in mind, here are the Top 7 Reasons to Repurpose Your Articles on Twitter

1. Extends Your Reach – Extending your reach means to get your marketing message and influence in front of as many eyes as possible. When you publicize your articles on Twitter, you are not only reaching those who are following you, you are also reaching everyone that follows each person who follows you – your reach rapidly multiplies.

2. It’s Helpful – When you are having conversations there and you see a question where one of your articles could help, you are being very helpful to someone when you refer them to you article(s). How’s that for upping the “know, like and trust” factor.

3. Ups Your Expert Status – Mentioning your articles and using them to answer questions increases your [Read more…]

Your 4 Sources of Article Traffic

Article Marketing allows you to create 4 different types of traffic when you submit your articles to Article Directories like EzineArticles.

1. Immediate Traffic

Every time you submit a new article to EzineArticles, you get the benefit of immediate traffic. It’s a fresh article and people are jumping all over it.

What you have at your fingertips with putting out an article is a powerful traffic generation tool. That’s where you get your immediate boost, with new articles, especially once you’ve developed a following. If people want to hear more from you, they’re going to be looking for your articles.

2. Regular, consistent traffic

Think of it this way. Each article – even if you’ve got an article that maybe only gets five new viewers per day, and then you stack another article on top of it that gets five new viewers a day, and then another article and then another article and then another article – and let’s say you’ve got 50 of those articles out there getting five new visitors a day.

That’s 250 new visitors a [Read more…]

Do You Make These 3 “Resource Box” Mistakes?

article-writing-pencils.jpgI see many people get into article marketing, write some good articles, and then blow the whole thing in the resource box.

So let’s take a look at three of the deadliest prospect and profit killing mistakes people make, and then what to do instead.

Mistake #1 – Making the Resource Box All About You – This one is really easy to do, especially since the resource box is also called the bio box. Many people tell the reader all about themselves.

I’ve actually seen a resource box that was almost as long as the article, filled with just about every award the author had won going back to grade school.
