I have been gaining weight. And I know it's my own damn fault.
I mean, really. It's not rocket science. I know I have not been watching what I have been eating and my exercise routine has changed.
While I am working out the same number of days each week, my cardio and strength training sessions are not as frequent, nor as intense, as they were last year at this time.
You see, I have a big problem.
I really hate to sweat.
But, I need to suck it up and just freakin' do it. Because sometimes we must push through something that is uncomfortable to get the results we want.
I know that once I get back into the routine of exercising at a higher intensity and frequency AND watching what I eat, I can get back to where I want to be.
So, it's pretty clear to me there is a direct correlation between this self-inflicted situation and online marketing
We all know that we SHOULD be doing more of it, am I right?
I mean, after all, there are 1.86 BILLION people on Facebook, for cat's sake!! Surely some of your customers are there.
But, perhaps you really don't think they are, or you are not convinced that they are looking for your type of business on Facebook.
Okay, I get it.
Yet there are 286,942,362 Internet users in the United States alone. Now you KNOW many of your customers are out there!
So, much like starting a New Year's resolution to exercise more and eat properly, we might dip our toes into the online marketing world.
For a while.
– We blog a bit on our websites and then we stop.
– We send out an email to our lists once in a while, and then we stop (A-hem! Quit pointing that finger at me!!!)
– We post occasionally on social media and see our post reach decline more and more
Like everything else, success comes from consistency. And it doesn't happen by a dabbling at it occasionally.
Take my 30 Day Facebook Live Challenge for example.
Facebook Live creates an opportunity to develop the know, like and trust relationship with your audience and prospective customers.
I made a commitment on February 13th to go live on Facebook every business day for 30 days and talk about using Facebook Live as a tool for your business.
And I did it. Every damn day, whether I felt like it or not.
And, guess what?
I got results!
My traffic to my website increased 229%. Page views tripled. The bounce rate declined.
My Facebook page engagement increased 176%. The number of Page Likes increased.
And, not only that. I now have a new custom audience based upon people who watched my live streams and I can use that audience for retargeting ads on Facebook.
I was so happy with the results, that I have converted my podcast into a weekly Facebook Live show.
You can catch me on my Facebook page each Thursday at 12 noon Pacific time for “Simple Steps to Online Success”. Like the page here so you can receive notifications when I go Live.
So, perhaps like me you are ready to buckle down and create a system (aka a “sales funnel”) within your business to use online marketing consistently and develop an actual strategy to find, engage and nurture prospective customers.
So, I am opening up some time on my calendar for one-off coaching calls where you can have an objective pair of eyes on your online presence (website and social media), have your current sales funnel(s) analyzed and get some actionable advice and recommendations.
And, the beauty of it is that you are not locked into any long term coaching agreements.

As an additional treat, you'll get to meet my able assistant, Buster the Wonder Cat, who makes an appearance!
So, don't let another month go by without taking some action to get your online marketing strategy delivering results for you.
Each day you delay is another day that you are NOT reaching your ideal audience and getting them into your funnel so you can generate more sales.Each day you delay is another day that you are NOT reaching your ideal audience and NOT generating new customersClick To Tweet
I am looking forward to speaking with you and making your online marketing strategy an PROFITABLE one!
