Where Should You Focus Your Marketing Efforts Today? Blogging or Video?
It’s been a while since I’ve written as I have opened a new brick and mortar business in Birmingham, AL a few months ago. I joined Solavei Wireless back in September of last year, decided to really go for it, and opened a store for a variety of reasons.
I’ve been working from home for the past few years, and learning how to build a successful business online so going back into “retail” has been an adjustment. You see our store isn’t really like any retail store I’ve ever seen, and I actually knew it wouldn’t be.
I had a vision that we would share the Solavei story with regular, everyday customers about the Solavei vision, and they would “get it”. They would then share it with their friends, and bring people by our store in order to get free cellphone service. I envisioned our neighbors getting mad at us for taking all the parking spaces. I dreamed I would have free rent from our landlord, and free advertising from a few key partners in the community.
You know what? That dream is now a reality. It’s the coolest thing ever to be honest, and we’ve been swamped with business for the last 6 weeks or so that we opened to the public.
I’ve been in the telecom/wireless industry for many years, and when I joined Solavei at their initial launch in the fall, I knew they were going to be big. Really big…and I was right! Solavei has become the fastest growing wireless company in history adding almost 190K subscribers so far in just a few short months. But Solavei is just getting started folks.
You don’t have to believe me, but I’m so excited about what I’ve seen already, and about what is about to come.
With that said, I’ve been focusing on building my Solavei Wireless business with a few walk-ins, that have converted into hundreds of customers already. We’ve been slammed! 🙂
However, I am still selling more and more everyday online even though I haven’t written too many blogs lately. How you ask?
As busy as I am on the phone, building my team, hosting webinars, and running our Solavei headquarters now, I’m not able to focus as much on writing longer blogs. I’ve taken time to make videos when I can, and link them to a capture page, and I’m getting just as good of results in doing so as spending a lot of time writing.
I’ve been preaching “make videos” for a long time, and all the hard work I put in a long time ago making those videos is paying huge dividends today. In fact, I sold three new accounts from leads online just today! That’s pretty exciting!
I’m having a great time doing something I love, my income is increasing daily as I do it, and I’m freeing up my personal time in the process.
So here’s the lesson in today’s blog post, and something I’m going to be teaching extensively here in the future.
If you have a choice to write articles or make videos that explains what you want to say in your post, make a quick video and post it on Youtube AND Your blog! Include your link in the video to your blog or a capture page, write a lonnnng keyword rich description, and take a couple of moments to write a compelling headline that will attract viewers.
Blogging vs Video Marketing
Video Marketing Works, and YOU NEED to place your marketing focus on video…and NOW! Blogging alone just won’t cut it anymore. In regards to blogging vs video marketing today, there is NO comparison as to what gets more results.
As I mentioned, stay tuned for more updates on this subject by subscribing to my site to get my newest training information.
It’s going to be blunt yet powerful information. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a telecom/wireless/technology guy, and marketing training will be my “labor of love” or my mission to help others looking for usable, tangible information that will HELP them!
Folks, I’m tired of the gurus garbage to be honest and I’m going to do my part to put an end to the fleecing of the world for unneccessary, ineffective training. I’ve been passionate about saving people money on telecom expenses for years to the big carriers, and most (not all) of the gurus are taking your money on worthless training programs. It’s disgusting…
I can’t reach everyone, but I can do my absolute best to make a difference in the lives of as many people as I can. I’m really excited about that. Stay tuned and please leave a comment on what you would like to be trained on in particular, or if you agree that the gurus have taken advantage of us long enough! Take care everybody. Have a great week!
