FIRST: Stop your marketing till you get control of your reputation!

What? A marketing expert telling you to stop? 

That’s because as an Online Reputation Expert, I’ve seen too much money thrown away trying to sell a product or service – when the bad reputation was displayed on the front page of Google for the world to see!

  • Question: would you buy a product or service that had Bad Ratings and Bad Reviews?

  • 70% of consumers trust a business with a minimum of 6-10 reviews
  • Without ten 5 star reviews your business isn’t trusted
  • When they see a bad review, 82% of buyers change their mind and go to the competition even after deciding on who to buy from
  • Are you ready for what WIRED Magazine calls “the New Reputation Economy”?

Once you’re back in control, then and only then take a look at the only 7 ways you can increase the sales of your business.

FACT: Once your reputation is intact, there are only 7 ways you can increase the sales of your business

  •  Use one method… and your results increase
  • Use two… and you get even more sales
  • Use three, four…or even all seven… and you are simply unbeatable and have people virtually begging you to take their money
  • There’s no luck involved just pure human psychology and math

Secret #1: Be strategic: take a careful look at your MARKET, what they WANT and what they SAY

  • The strategist always wins over the tactician
  •  What’s your strategy?
  •  What’s your end game?
  •  Who’s your market and what do MORE they want? Who are you serving? Who’s your ideal customer? Is there more than one? How many are there, what do they say, what do they want?

But how do you know all that?

How do you use the available tools to tell you these answers? So you can know EXACTLY what to sell – who, what, when, where and how to talk about it?

Five of the best ways:

Discover the EXACT keywords your customers are using … know your Customer Segments, how your competitors are being found

You’ll know which words to use: the fears, frustrations, wants and needs.

Secret #2: Get more people to TAKE MORE NOTICE of your marketing, so they READ or WATCH until the END, and are EXCITED about what you sell

  • People run on emotion – so learn how to tap into people’s emotion
  •  We love to be excited about stuff – it helps us to be convinced we’re making the right choice
  • How? Talk in terms of BENEFITS 80% of the time andfeatures no more than 20% – most businesses do the opposite!
  • Put simply, even if your marketing is being noticed – it’s NOT being read
  •  People are distracted so easily and have such short attention span
  •   So if you can’t get them to read your marketing for more than a few seconds, they miss your message and end up judging you on price alone or worse, they just ignore you

Start with the headline – here’s an example of a proven, attention-getting headline:

This headline will work no matter what industry you are in…


If you’re thinking of _______________

then don’t do anything until you read this

Your headline is vital in getting your marketing noticed.

So what else can you do to get your readers’ eyes GLUED to your marketing?

  •  One way is to PAINT A PICTURE of what life will be like for your reader once they own what you sell – called “Future Pacing”
  •  If your product or service improves your customer’s life in some way, then describe how
  • Create a picture in their mind of how they’re going to benefit

Here are 3 phrases to explode the excitement of your marketing:

  • So that you…
  • What that means is…
  •  Which means…

The 7 strategies for your business include:

  •  Mobile and social media marketing, harnessing the $300bn value of Google in a way that’s free and used by less than 1% of businesses
  • Using free images and video
  •  Becoming The Authority in your industry
  •  Using automated responses and software

Use these all together and your business explodes.

Secret #3: Get more people to TRUST and RESPECT your marketing

Trust between businesses and customers is at an all-time low

Maybe even you are distrustful of marketing.

So it’s the business that proves able to DELIVER what isi promised which wins. How?

  • Use our Reputation Marketing process to manage and market your reviews and reputation
  •  Use TESTIMONIALS – if you’re in a confidential industry, use CASE STUDIES instead
  •  Use a great GUARANTEE
  • Give complementary access to a SPECIAL REPORT which helps your customers
  •  Use YouTube and the other video channels
  • Use Google+, Google+ Local and Google Authorship

Don’t you just hate competing on PRICE?

You just need to find your USP – your Unique Selling Proposition: something which you do or offer which no-one else does.

How to find your USP:

“Why should I do business with you over anyone else?”

Review, refine and where necessary recreate your USP so you have a POWERFUL positioning statement. If you need help with this, ask for our Report on Finding Your Unique Identity And Creating Your Unbeatable Positioning Statement.

  • This is great, if you’re ready for them. But if you’re not, then your website could be repelling and evenannoying your potential customers, as they can’t access your site from their mobile devices.
  • Don’t just take my word for it.
Research shows that57% of people do not recommend a business that is not mobile-ready and 40% of people would turn to a competitor’s site that is mobile-ready. Not exactly the response you’re looking for, is it?

Let’s look at bit more at the upsurge of mobile use – and the opportunity that presents for you.

“Mobile marketing is the biggest story of 2013 and throughout the next decade”

What does this mean for you? It’s critical that you make your communications mobile – get a website which can be read on a mobile phone

Why did Google (outgoing) CEO Eric Schmidt, Google’s former CEO, say way back in 2011 to “Put your best people on mobile”?

  •  Because Mobile today is, by a wide margin, the fastest-growing giant industry on the planet.
  • Because all major digital technologies and media are headed to mobile – telecoms, computers, the internet, music, gaming, news, television, advertising, banking
  • This is definitely the “industry of the decade” and we have only begun.

So how big is big? It’s huge. Let’s review the numbers:


So first the biggest number – 5.2. That is in billions with a B.

  • There are 1.2 billion personal computers worldwide including desktops, laptops and tablet PCs like the iPad.
  • There are 1.1 billion landline phones
  • There are 1.0 billion vehicles registered and in use.
  • There are 1.6 billion television sets, 1.7 billion credit card users, 2.0 billion internet users, 2.2 billion people with a banking account, and 3.9 billion radio receivers in use worldwide.

Mobile utterly dwarfs them all – with 5.2 billion currently active. 5.2 billion. yes, 4.5 times more mobile phone subscriptions than personal computers or landline phones. 2.5x more mobile accounts than all internet users. 3 times more mobile subscribers than the total number of television sets. Mobile is huge.

In Australia and the USA the mobile phone penetration rate is 100% per capita. That may seem impressive, it is not. The UK and Europe are at 130%, many leading countries are already past the 150% level and the United Arab Emirates (ie Abu Dhabi, Dubai) became the first country to pass 200% mobile phone subscriber count. And even the poorest regions are rushing in. The continent of Africa has already passed the 50% penetration level in mobile phone subscriptions per capita.

Nokia told us way back in 2010 that the average person on the planet looks at the phone now 150 times per day. That ‘s every six and a half minutes of every hour we are awake! It’s our clock, alarm, calendar and our map.

  •  The activity that gets the most use of the mobile ‘phone’ is voice calls – but that is nowhere near 100% Yes, only 88% of us will originate voice calls.
  • The primary use of a mobile phone for most users is.. SMS text messaging! 82% of all mobile phone users already send SMS text messages.
  • Most users now prefer SMS as the most used function on the phone.

While all mobile phone accounts include free voicemail, the use of voicemail is down to 67%. Mobile phone subscribers are doing what for example the Finnish Prime Minister was saying earlier in the past decade – their voicemail says, don’t leave me voice mail, send me an SMS text message instead.

So the huge number here is SMS. SMS text messaging has more than twice the number of users as all users of the internet. Nearly four times more people send SMS text messages than have a PC of any kind. SMS is 3 times bigger than email.

Do you think Facebook is ‘important’ and ‘popular’ – well, SMS is… seven … yes seven (!) times bigger than Facebook. You like Twitter? SMS is 21 times bigger than Twitter!

  •  SMS is the only technology that reaches the pockets of 61% of the planet. SMS user base is almost four times as big as the total of all personal computers in us.
  • If your website isn’t mobile, soon you won’t be seen.
  • If you’re not using Google+ Local Places for Business, you’re not going to be ranking highly regardless of how good your site.
  • If you’re not getting ready to use SMS marketing, you’re going to be left behind.

Just in case you’re not yet convinced…

  • 70% of all mobile searches are acted upon within an hour, versus 30% of traditional searches
  • There are over 1.2 Billion people accessing the web from their mobiles
  •  1.08 of the world’s 4 billion mobile phones are smartphones
  • Web traffic from smartphones in increasing by 103% per year
  • Consumers in the US spend almost 1 in every 10 ecommerce dollars using a mobile device (Source:Hubspot)
  • 29% of mobile users are open to scanning a mobile tag to get coupon
  •  39% of instances where a consumer walks out of a store without buying were influenced by smartphone
  •   Over 1/3 of Facebook’s users access Facebook Mobile; 50% of Twitter’s users use Twitter Mobile
  •  QR code scans are increasing by 300% per year
  • Google earns $2.5 Billion in mobile ad revenue annually (Source Digital Buzz Blog)

  •  84% of mobile phone users keep their device within 10 feet of them at all times (source Mobile Marketing Review)
  • Mobile phone campaigns typically have response rates of 12-15% (as opposed to direct mail which averages 2 – 3 percent); some companies are seeing response rates as high as 60 percent (source Mobile Marketing Review)
  •   A last-minute campaign I ran with a client saw a 30% response rate – and he’s now converted to mobile (SMS) marketing
  • While 65 percent of email is spam, this is less than 10 percent with SMS.
  •  100m people use their mobile phones to manage their Facebook account.
  • Run an SMS campaign – it costs you NOTHING to receive SMS competition entries for instance – and less than 10 cents per outgoing message – and you catch all the details! Use

Secret #7: get social
