  • True Business Stories Into Profits

    Let me ask you… What’s your story?

    I mean…

    Do you and your business have a story? How did you get to where you are and why did you create the business you have?

    We get so used to all the “guru’s” and others preaching to us that no one cares about you and only is interested in themselves.

    This can be true to a point. We’ll get to buying triggers and selling your benefits like a pro later, but for now…

    Let’s dive into creating your story.

    Here’s something I found interesting and you may too…

    I was looking at Google analytics on one of my websites (basically page views, what people looked at and how long they were on my site).

    It turns out the page that was my story was visited by over 70% of new visitors to my site.

    Guess how many percent of new visitors entered my testimonial page?

    Only A Little Over 50%.

    This means that more people wanted to learn about me versus results I generated for clients. Now results and proof all matter.

    But the point is…

    Your Story Can Be Extremely Powerful.

    If didn’t think your story matters or not sure how to create or express your story, then you’re in luck. Why?

    Because I’m going to give you some quick tips so you can begin creating your story and letting people know about your story.

    But first…

    Want to know something you can add to your emails, sales letters or any other sales message and causes more people to read your message?

    Something that can keep your prospect moving from one sentence to the next-in a smooth interrupted manner.

    What is it?

    Using the same thing we’re talking about. If you haven’t uncovered this or tried using stories for yourself, then you’re in for a treat right now.

    Using a story or stories in your messages can be a great way to draw people into your message. Plus…

    A good story can easily do the selling for you as well.

    There’s also an extremely simple and easy way to increase the chances of someone reading way more of your message and story as well.

    I’ll get to that in a minute, but first let’s talk about why stories are great for selling or talking about your product, service and or business.

    Stories can be used to sell products or even ideas.

    Stories can be used to entertain or even teach.

    Here’s a perfect example of this…

    Guess what the most famous book in the world is?

    The Bible. It’s full of stories.

    Some of the most successful and famous ads of all time involved stories.

    A copywriter by the name of John Caples wrote what most call the “20th century most successful mail order ad”.

    The headline was…

    “They laughed when I sat down at the piano But when I started to play… ”

    There is a part of you that wants to see the underdog win.

    This headline hooks you emotionally.

    You want to know what happens and does he freak out or win over the bullies. Does he actually play good or fall flat on his face?

    In this ad, they could of just talked about music lessons, but the story puts a twist on another music product.

    In other words, you dive into the story which is really the ad. The story does the heavy lifting and selling for you.

    As a matter of fact…

    People always love good stories.

    From the time we were kids, we listened to and enjoyed stories.

    Even as adults, you’re at a family event or party and you’re drawn into a crazy or interesting story.

    Maybe your buddy called you and told you the funniest or most interesting story you’ve heard all day?

    Maybe your husband or wife just told you the “horror story” from work or a crazy incident involving their friend and the latest gossip?

    The point is…

    Stories can not only get people involved in your sales message more, but also…

    Stories do the “heavy lifting” of your sales message or goal like we spoke about.

    Everyone loves a good story and if you can combine your story with some entertainment and value, then you have a winning combination.

    Oh by the way, you probably wanted to know what I mentioned a little while ago-you know when I said there was one easy way to have people read more of your message and or story.

    That one way is through…

    Cliff Hangers or Teasers.

    Like when I said “I’ll get to that in a minute”.

    Cliff Hangers can be powerful in messages.

    Just think about your favorite television show, maybe were really getting into it and then here comes the commercial or the end.

    You can’t stop watching it now, you need to know how it turns out.

    The news is notorious for this. You know the old…

    “There’s something in your house right now that could be harming your family, but first let’s go to Mr. X for the weather” or…

    “We’ll talk about that harmful thing tonight at 10!”

    Why wouldn’t they just tell you now?

    Because they want you to come back or to stay tuned.

    Teasers or cliff hangers can be powerful and explosive when combined with stories and or messages.

    If still not sure if you can come up with your sales message story, then this quick tip below could make your next story so much easier to create and write.

    A while back I heard a drop dead simple formula for coming up with a story.

    Want to hear it?

    O.K. since you said yes.

    In a great book by the name of Pitch Anything… the author talks about this formula and it go’s something like this…

    Put a Man In The Jungle. Have Lions Attack The Man. Does He Survive and If So, How?

    It’s not exactly like that, but that’s it in a nutshell pretty much.

    I know you may be thinking that’s way too simple. But think about any good story or even movie you’ve seen. It all follows the same formula.

    Let me put it another way for you real quick…

    Character is put into an intense situation.

    Some drama or action takes place.

    The character is defeated or most likely-overcomes the experience and you see this all unfold before your eyes.

    That’s it.

    Try using this drop dead simple formula the next time you need to create a story.

    Now liked we spoke about…

    The story you are telling could be about your business. Your product. Your customers experience…

    Or even a story that somehow ties back to your sales offer.

    We talked about stories for selling. What about what we started to speak about in the beginning?

    Creating your business story. One you can use on your site or marketing.

    Let’s first start here…

    How did you get to where you are?

    You obviously didn’t just start your business today. Or even if you did…

    What made you get to the point where you absolutely had to open your doors or set up a business website?

    What ignited your passion and made you start?

    If you really think on this and tie it into why you really created your business and how your passion helps your customers experience better value…

    Then this can be an important part of your business story.

    A quick nugget about “your story” though…

    I’m referring to where on your website you have a bio or my story page or a tab.

    If using a sales page or medium, keep your story short, list why they should listen to you and then…

    Continue how your product or service… Is For Them.

    Speaking of your product or service story…

    Here’s a great profitable story that may be exactly what you need to make sure your next promotion or launch is successful.

    There’s a fantastic story about a direct response copywriter by the name of Claude Hopkins.

    In the 1920’s, he was put in charge of improving the Schlitz Beer advertising campaign.

    They were all the way in fifth place in the beer market at the time.

    After being hired for the job, Hopkins toured the brewery to get to know the product.

    He discovered an elaborate filtration process in which the beer was sterilized and cooled in a special way over frigid pipes – All in a plate glass room in which only filtered air could enter.

    When he asked the person giving him the tour…

    Why they weren’t telling people about this…

    He was told that “every brewery filtered beer this way”.

    What Was Hopkins Response?

    “But others have never told this story.”

    This beer production story injected into the new advertising campaign took Schlitz beer from fifth place in the beer market to being tied for first.

    You See…

    Even though they weren’t original in their process, by them telling the story first, it drew people in and turned them from just another beer to a leader in the industry.

    Another great example…

    Joe Sugarman (great direct response copywriter and marketer) actually built an entire company off of one story ad.

    Have you ever heard of BlueBlockers?

    Yes, those sunglasses.

    He placed his ad in some airline magazines and other sources.

    This ad launched the company and he turned that success into infomercials and massive QVC selling sprees.

    Actually, they sold over 20 million pairs of those puppies.

    This one page ad that started it all not only told a story, it provided education to the consumer and…

    Used his own skepticism of the product to the selling advantage.

    A lot of people will tell you…

    The blockbuster story ad I’m speaking about is one of the most successful direct response story ads ever written.

    I thought that blockbuster ad I’m talking about now is such a great example of a story selling a product, that I included a copy of this ad in this section.

    Before that story example though, what about the customers you’ve dealt with and their experience?

    Do you have any testimonials or feedback that can be turned into a success story?

    Now if you have some generic testimonials or some that are lacking some finesse, then this is where you can inject some drama.

    Always be honest with your marketing, but…

    If your testimonial or customer experience can be spiffed up and everything is legit then why not add some of the drama and excitement needed.

    Let’s say you’re going to put a client success story in your next campaign.

    The problem is…

    The testimonial just says… “You were great. Thanks”.

    (Now I included your own testimonial generation letter with this system, so you’ll be receiving top notch feedback before you know it and never receive something like… “nice work”)

    Now… if you remember that customer told you before they bought your product…

    He or she was online for hours searching for this product…

    Fiends all had it and they have been wanting it for months…

    Searched 5 different stores and finally found it at one store, but way too expensive…

    Then their car broke down on the highway, then finally…

    Found your store and you actually had the best value.

    It was worth all the hassles.

    You can share all this and talk about his adventure and all the drama they experienced.

    You were the hero. This is a quick example.

    But the point is…

    You just took the same old boring testimonial and now transformed it into some drama and excitement.

    Remember, if you’re rewriting a testimonial or ever putting a customer in marketing, always get permission to use their info and or story.

    Always have them sign off on any changes or things you wrote for them as well.

    If it’s honest and they agree, then go for it.

    But again, only if legit.

    Now… What About You?

    What do you do outside or inside of work that people may be interested in?

    Do you have weird hobbies or maybe other things you’re passionate about?

    Travel to interesting places? Have funny pets? An interesting family?

    Do you have a dramatic or exciting experience that brought you to here right now?

    You may think no one cares, but your story can not only make you “more human” than others…

    It also can build a better rapport with your customers.

    You, Me, Our Customers and Everyone Else Is All Entertained and Drawn In By Stories.

  • How To Building Miniature Golf Course

    If you have ever been to a miniature golf course in a tourist area, then you are probably familiar with pirate and dinosaur themes. Big structures help the business to look more appealing from the outside, converting passing traffic into customers. Even up close, the public is quickly bored with a flat series of holes on relatively level ground. Design flourishes can make the whole game more enjoyable.

    Find Your Giant Windmill
    It may seem like a cliché in the industry, but a giant windmill has always been a classic attraction. The blades rotate and momentarily block the path where putters need to aim. The obstacle adds the challenge of timing your stroke, and swinging too soon (or too late) results in laughter and frustration. Of course, your big feature doesn’t need to be a windmill. Think of something large and memorable, preferably with movement or some other unique challenge. This is your opportunity to make an impression on guests.

    Small Bodies of Water
    Some beginners design their courses around routine rectangles of AstroTurf. When players see this simple type of miniature golf course, they think of how they could do better themselves. Water obstacles are one easy way to make the whole setting more impressive. Consider having streams and small waterfalls incorporated into a couple of the holes. Needing to avoid (or jump over) a small stream can make the experience feel more like a day out on the links.

    Ramps and Level Changes
    When descending into a hole on a lower plane, a ball rapidly picks up speed. Slopes add all kinds of fun calculation and challenge to the relatively simple task of lining up a shot. Slopes can take a ball off course or even send it back to the person putting, providing added opportunities for displays of skill and finesse. When designing the layout for a putt-putt golf course, it’s critical to avoid being too simple. Playing at different elevations produces a more layered experience, and players at higher levels can enjoy a better view of lower sections to come.

    Pipes and Transfer Tubes
    There’s no point in pretending that putt-putt is as skilful or complicated a game as actual golf. To help give players a sense of levity, it’s often helpful to include challenges where the ball is funnelled into a chute, exiting closer to the destination. Pipes of PCV can be incorporated during the construction phase, big enough to accommodate balls and straight enough to clean in case of blockage. For even more fun, give the players a choice of their initial openings; they can guess which one will put them in the best position for a final shot.

    When you are designing a miniature golf course, there are clearly a lot of factors to keep in mind. It’s also a great idea to decide on a primary theme or gimmick. Pirate and safari themes are common, but a theme isn’t enough on its own. Remember these tips so that your guests will have a fun time.

  • The Reason Social Media Is Important to Your Small Business

    1: It finds your customers and builds clientele

    Many of us use Social Media on a regular basis. We use it to stay on top of what’s trending, follow our favorite businesses, post our personal beliefs and so much more. I’d like to think of Social Media as the new “office water cooler” — People are out there talking and they are waiting for your business to show up so they can discuss what you have to offer.

    Customers need to trust a business, service or product before purchasing. People tend to trust their friends and loved ones more than anyone else. So, if your customers hear from someone trustworthy, about your product or service, it is reasonable to believe that they are more likely to purchase what you are selling. You could very reasonably market your products and services using, mostly, word of mouth.

    Best way to promote your ideas on Social Media is by having your friends and family help you. They can share your business posts/pictures/videos on their accounts and your business will potentially be in the hands of hundreds of new customers. “Sharing is Caring”, Right?

    2: It gives you an idea of what people are saying about you and your business

    You can keep an eye on what people are saying about you and your business and respond to all posts, good and bad. You can use Google Alerts (www.Google.com/alerts) to see who is talking about you and your brand. On Google Alerts you can create “alerts” with keywords like your name, business name, etc. and when Google finds those in the search engine, they will email you the sites that match those keywords. This is a great way to see what people are saying about you across multiple Social Media Channels.

    3: Allows you to get to know your audience and customers.

    Social Media opens up the line of communication between business owners and millions of potential customers. Wow! Millions of people could possibly become your customers, that kind of marketing would have been hard to do in the offline world. Communication is key, this is how you will get to know who your customers are and why they fit into your target audience.

    You will be able to generate a variety of content to market your products and services. When you are creating great content, your customers will take notice. They will start commenting and reaching out to you. This is your chance to interact with them, have a conversation in real time.

    Your goal with content is to get a response from your customers, so you can build a relationship. You can create content such as polls, surveys, contests, videos, Live Q&A sessions, and so much more!

    4: It’s an easy and natural way to get your name out there! It introduces your brand and builds awareness.

    For the most part Social Media is FREE. What? Free Advertising/Marketing? Yep!! You should be on a variety of Social Channels and create and post engaging content. This will allow your customers to see exactly who you are and what your product / services do for them.

    Your business is more accessible this way, think 24/7! People can find you at all times across Social Media. An accessible business means a more trustworthy business, meaning customers can start to build that relationship with you when they can find you.

    • You can create customer testimonial videos and add them to YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and more.

    • Let people know about new products, giveaways, partnerships, sponsorships, discounts coupons, etc.

    • Brag about yourself! What are some of your business achievements? Your potential customers want to know about them.

    • Create buzz! Get the word out there by creating a recognizable identity for your product, service and brand.

    • You should establish yourself as an expert. Use forums and message boards to answer questions professionally, honestly, and correctly, which will earn you respect as an expert in your field. People will then look to you for answers. You can even use a variety of apps such as Periscope, YouTube Live, Facebook Live, Instagram to run “Live Q&A” sessions.

    5: Go where your customers/clients are! We all use Social Media – we can engage in two-way communication in real time.

    Oh my, how many people are out there using Social Media? A LOT!! I say that Social Media is the new “Google Search”. People are using Facebook, Twitter, Instagram to find and follow local businesses. It’s quicker and easier to engage with a business on Social Media than actually taking more time to do a Google Search and visit your company website.

    So, go where your customers are! Your competition is already using Social Media to market their business, so don’t get left behind. Check out the list below to see how you can get people talking and sharing on Social Media.

    • Share industry news, upcoming events, new hires – what can you share to get people talking?

    • Great way to promote upcoming client events. You can let your customers know who you may be partnering with, spread the word about other local businesses too.

    • Make it easy for potential customers who see your content recognize you as someone who can help them.

    • Share links to interesting articles, websites or videos. Use words that grab the readers and encourage them to click the link.

    • Talk about an event that you attended or are attending. Invite your audiences.

    • Be Helpful: Produce content that presents new knowledge or assists in professional decision making.

    • Be Interesting: Spark conversation around a news event, cover the latest posts from an industry influencer, or create an infographic about your business. Just keep it fun and fresh!

    • Help them help others: We want information that we can share to our network. Sometimes the information that you put out there may not pertain to your actual customers, but they may know someone who may need what you have. Hence, sharing! They share to their friends and family, and your business now has the potential to help even more people, maybe even new customers.

  • Small Business Success Tips

    I like to think of myself as capable of most any task I take on. No doubt you do as well. Given enough time and resources, we can obtain the necessary knowledge and skill to do most anything.

    Which is exactly why we shouldn’t do some things.

    Some time ago I took on the job of remodeling our bathroom. We had purchased an older home and the décor was dated. My wife wanted (among other things) to have the 60’s vanity removed and to install a porcelain pedestal sink.

    Removal was a breeze. Breaking things is in my skill set. Once removed I placed the pedestal sink in place and began the installation process. A few hours and a lot of water later I sat on the floor, surrounded by hoses, gaskets, and various tools. I was dumbfounded as to why I could not successfully install this sink.

    Just then my wife came in and asked, “Is there anything I can get you?”

    “The only thing I need right now is a plumber” was my reply.

    What seemed to be a straight-forward, simple yet not easy task had turned into an epic challenge that I could not solve. And this is often what happens in our work lives as well.

    No one wants to be incompetent. But admitting one’s incompetence is often the first step in moving forward with a project. How much revenue has been sacrificed, how many clients have not been served, how many opportunities have been lost because we feel the need to do a task ourselves rather than delegate it to someone who already possesses skill and knowledge we do not?

    This is most common in small business. To compete we need to be experts in accounts payable, receivable, human resources, payroll, tax compliance and strategy, marketing, advertising, sales, retention, and now social media too. It can overwhelm the most competent person just as I was overwhelmed by the seemingly simple task of installing a sink.

    Each task can be mastered individually. But when it comes to the pace of running a small business, trying to master any one task on the fly is insurmountable. You’re better off admitting you are incompetent and hiring someone who is. That way you can focus on what parts of the business you do well and get better results.

    If you are good at selling but poor at bookkeeping, hire someone to do the bookkeeping and do more selling. You’ll make more money because you’ll be doing what you do well and outsourcing what you don’t do well.

    All the time you spend learning a new task and doing it poorly is lost opportunity time (not to mention poor execution which leads to higher costs as well).

    And here’s the real risk in not taking this approach; eventually you will grow tired of doing the tasks you don’t do well and you’ll start to avoid doing it at all. And when things don’t get done they create bigger problems that must be done. This will undoubtedly call for hiring an expert.

    To be successful in business today you must comply with regulation, compete with the competition, and communicate to your target clients why they should do business with you. Then you must close the sale and do everything necessary to retain the client. No one person can do this well for very long. Soon you’ll have more to do than you personally can.

    If you intend to grow you will be best-served to learn this now: The best business people are very good at one or two things and excellent at delegating or outsourcing the rest.

    1. Develop a great story. This is crucial. If you don’t have anything interesting for the media, why would they care? The key is to identify the story idea, flush out the specifics and give it some personality and flavor to make it appetizing for the media.

    2. Pick the right tools to communicate your story pitch. Everyone needs a news release but many other tools will help sell your story to the media. Think about a video, an infographic, a white paper or some internal research that elevates your pitch and helps you stand out from the crowd. Think visually. Graphics work well with today’s audience.

    3. Spend time researching your targeted media. Analyze your targeted publications or TV stations in advance of your pitch. Determine if they run stories similar to those you are considering for publicity. For example, business stories are difficult to sell to a consumer related publication. Highly scientific articles might work for an industry trade journal but usually won’t fly with a local newspaper. Read and watch and see if you story idea makes sense for the media you are targeting.

    4. Write clearly and to the point. Communicating your pitch in a news release or email takes some practice and finesse. This calls for simple, concise but interesting sentences. Busy journalists don’t have time to read elongated pitches and multi-page releases. Write in a style that sells your story or find someone who can.

    5. Focus on a great email headline. Most communication with the media is done by email, and you need to make your subject line interesting so it stands out from the crowd. Instead of “New business set to open in Osage County” make it “New business will add 50 jobs to Osage County and feature new products and services never before offered in the area. Mayor and local officials excited in anticipation of the opening.”

    6. Give your article “tentacles” to continually build on the story. You can gain additional media coverage from one story by leveraging it for another. When one of our clients was on the NBC Nightly News we contacted the local newspaper and told them about it. They had a local gossip type column and ran a story that our client was on network television. This was a good way to reinforce the story and give the client additional brand recognition in the local market they serve.

    7. Amplify your news on social media. Reach your customers directly and thousands more by sending out your article or TV story on social media. You can link it to your corporate or personal sites. In many cases your followers and friends may like it and re-post it. This way you generate thousands of more views with just a little effort.

  • Skills That Great PR Should Have

    Technical skills are indispensable to the hardware of any job. In a Public Relations firm, soft skills are just as central to PR executives who work in a people-centric environment. The PR industry is founded on the ability to establish trusting relationships with clients and the public. We share three essential skills to navigate work in PR.

    Master Multitasking

    Often swarmed with multiple tasks demanding the same amount of commitment, PR practitioners must possess the vital skill of multi-tasking. Not only that, PR specialists have to attend to journalists, clients, and the media and be ready to circle back to their work with information quickly and effectively. From initiating a new campaign to pitching to the media, PR agencies steadily juggle multiple projects and clients simultaneously. While certain urgent situations arise that warrant immediate attention, follow through your current task and complete it before switching your focus to another task. Such systematic multitasking decreases the tendency to be distracted and boosts concentration and efficiency.

    Manage Your Time

    A typical day at a PR firm starts with a slew of emails, the crafting of press releases and articles and weekly meetings with the team. With the limited amount of time on hand, there has to be an efficient way to prioritise tasks in order to meet deadlines. Making a to-do list organises tasks in an orderly fashion according to their importance or urgency, which saves time in the long run. Just as important is following up with your deadlines to keep a handle of any responsibilities by checking with those who are helping you to accomplish a task. Furthermore, a missed deadline translates into a snowball effect where work piles up and decreases productivity. Time management does wonders to the level of productivity in a PR agency.

    Meticulousness Matters

    Despite having tons of tasks to settle every day, a PR specialist has to be adequately meticulous. Today, digital communication has put brands under the microscope, necessitating conscientious communication to the media and the public due to the sensitivity of public sentiment. After all, building strong relationships starts with quality communication that requires careful planning to bridge information transmission gaps that builds on strong

    These soft skills play a critical role in the work of PR practitioners due to their competitive and fast-paced work environment. Public Relations agencies with practitioners equipped with soft skills are able to deliver returns on clients’ investment.

  • Between PR and the Media

    Public Relations and the media industry share a relationship that is complex and in a way, interdependent.

    PR and the Media

    On the other hand, the media look to PR to receive interesting stories. With the media industry getting bigger and the newspapers and publications becoming thicker, the media relies on the PR industry to fill its pages with exciting news.

    Building Stories

    The basis of building a strong media relationship is research. PR practitioners need to understand the needs of their clients and communicate with the right media who can deliver it successfully.

    The strength of PR lies in finding the most interesting and compelling stories of the company and using effective narrative skills to spread a positive outlook about the company. PR practitioners must be constantly aware of the breaking news and latest topics. They must somehow try to connect the client’s message with the news to turn them into a compelling and engaging story. For example, if the upcoming month is dedicated to cancer awareness, you can let one of the doctors from your hospital participate on a national talk show.

    Once the PR has newsworthy stories, the next step is to contact the relevant broadcasters and journalists.

    Relationship with the Media

    Finding the right person who will be interested in your story is crucial. Else, you’ll be knocking on the wrong person’s door and wasting all your effort and time.

    An effective pitch is the first step of contact with the media. If your pitch is valuable, it can be the start of a strong relationship with the media. So, make sure you contact the correct individual and with the information that they would want to work with.

    Once the initial communication is made, it is important to put in a continuous effort to strengthen the ties with the media.

    PR and the Internet

    In the past few years, PR is constantly aware of the power of the internet. With conversations happening in the social media every second, it is important for the PR industry to monitor what is being said about their clients in the internet sphere.

    The Internet is ruled by bloggers, online broadcasters, relevant sites and influencers. It is crucial for the PR industry to maintain a cordial relationship with these parties. Through the internet medium, PR can spread their message through viral marketing.

    Unlike the traditional media, the Internet is in a way a two-way communication channel. When a PR practitioner uses the internet to dispatch articles and blogs, they must respond quickly to the audience’s feedback, comments and views.

  • Ways To An Ideal Press Release

    There are some people who feel that press releases don’t have as much weight as they had before. While there are some people who misuse them, when written properly, the releases still have a great impact on helping you to generate buzz about your products and brands. To help you out, here are the features that you should ensure that your release has for it to give you the desired results:

    It should be newsworthy

    If you look around you will find plenty of people penning news unworthy releases. For you to be successful, you should ensure that your release has something worth mentioning. This could be abnormal profits, an introduction of a new product or anything else. As rule of thumb, you should never write a release that isn’t adding new information to the people.

    It should be informational

    Originally, people used press releases to popularize their brands. You won’t go anywhere when you do this. The press release that you put down should be informative. If you have introduced a new product, you should tell people more about the product and not about your company. You should talk about the facts and statistics about the product for the journalists to pick it up and publish or distribute it.

    It should be timely

    Your press release won’t have the ideal impact if you release it at the wrong time. Experts recommend that you send the release during the productive hours of the day. This should be before 10:00 am. You should be cautious of the day that you send it out. As rule of thumb, you should send it on Tuesday or Wednesday. Never send it on Monday, Friday or during the weekends as few or no people will read it during this time.

    It should be easy to read

    No one is going to read your press release if it’s written in hard-to-read language. Also, no one is going to read or even share it if it’s not beautifully formatted. Your release should be written in an easy language. It also should be professionally formatted so that people have an easy time navigating through.

    Conclusion

    Press releases are still effective and impactful when you write and distribute them properly. If you don’t have the skills to do it right, you should hire a professional to help you out. The professionals will write the releases for you and even distribute them on your behalf.

  • Common Mistake Undertanding About Entrepreneurship

    Don’t let what others think about entrepreneurs hold you back from greatness,

    Misconception is a thought or opinion that is incorrect based on the faulty thinking or understanding of people. Here, we want to clarify some of the misconceptions in entrepreneurship.

    They work for money

    Entrepreneurship isn’t all about money, it’s about solving problems for people and love what they do. Also, it’s about creating a name for themselves and making a positive impact in the world.

    Money is also a way to do bigger and more exciting deals. The motivation of a new idea, and the risks involved have far more power to motivate the entrepreneurial spirit than money. In entrepreneurship, your business and success become an obsession not the money.

    They lack courage

    I’ve never seen anyone that is as courageous as an entrepreneur.

    It takes courage to forego the predictability of a corporate job, It takes courage to take the risk of failure, It takes courage to make your dreams into reality.

    And it takes courage, lots of it to hand over the reins when your startup grows beyond your ability to manage it.

    That’s why entrepreneurs are rightly the true heroes of our modern world.

    They are professionals

    Most successful entrepreneurs are not highly qualified fellows, but are success driven. Surprisingly, attending an elite university or higher education doesn’t provide a significant advantage in entrepreneurship. What matters is that the entrepreneur gains a degree; the choice of major or college doesn’t play a big role in success. However, the greater the education of the entrepreneur, the lower the rate of business failure and the higher the business’s profits, sales and employment.

    They sometimes have overnight success

    It may seem to you that entrepreneurs made the huge amount of money, but do you know that there is a lot of handwork before he made it.

    Overnight success is possible; entrepreneurs are inspired to start their own business by witnessing successful and established entrepreneurs. They study the success stories, the beginning of those success stories, which often includes massive struggle prior to the breakthroughs. As a matter of Fact, it takes years to become an overnight success in entrepreneurship!

    Many entrepreneurs needlessly worry that they haven’t perfected their ideas. No idea is ever perfect. When you have an idea, go ahead and build a prototype or two, tinker with what works, make refinements as necessary, but by all means get it out there! You can always improve on a good idea. Let the market help you improve.

    You don’t have to be a Harvard graduate to be an entrepreneur, but you do need to understand the characteristics of entrepreneurial. See you at the top!
