#315 - How to easily add a chat bot to your WordPress blog?
Let’s talk about adding a chat bot to your WordPress blog site. It’s really quite simple to do and so many worry about the tech. In this episode, I’ll show you how easy it is to add a chat bot to your WordPress blog site. By the way, you can just as easily add it to almost any website that you have header code edit access. What is a chat bot? Before getting into it, let’s make sure we’re talking about the same thing. When I say “chat bot”, I mean a piece of software, or a computer, that can have a conversation with your web site or blog visitor. It’s usually a little hovering icon on the bottom of your site that users can click to interact with. On my blog (this page you’re reading now), it’s a picture of me with my hand pointing to a message to click for help. When you click it, a popup opens with the start of a conversation. You can fully customize the conversation and the user interaction. You can even change the fonts,...

#313 - How to offer special deal on your course using a chat bot?
If you have a course that you are selling online, they say the best way to get sales is to actually talk to people. People will buy a course from someone they know, like and trust… They’ll also buy it if someone they know tells them it’s great. Lastly, if they see lots of strangers say it’s a great course. How to scale your sales? Of course, you can spend thousands in ads to sell your course. What if you don’t have that money (yet)? You can spend all your time talking with people online until someone buys it. What if you don’t have that time? You can hire someone else to do the talking for you and pay them commissions. What if you can’t find that person? Chat bot to the rescue If you can’t spend the money on ads, spend the time talking to everyone or hire the right person to be you, next best thing is a chat bot. The cool thing about a chat bot is that you can tailor it to be close to what you’d say and do. You can even...

I’ve been using this really cool chat bot on my WordPress blog for months now. I actually got it setup first in July 2020 and it’s been working tirelessly getting me subscribers and even made a few sales from it. Pretty cool, right? What if you could do that on your blog or any other web site yourself? What is a chat bot? Let’s first explain what I mean by a chat bot… There are literally hundreds of them out there… But they all pretty much do the same thing, some with more bells and whistles than others. Some also more expensive than others, so kee that in mind when looking. The one I use was a one-time lifetime purchase of $37 (not sure what it is now) In any case, it’s a piece of software that asks your visitors questions and based on their answers has a conversation with them to help them along a path you define.

#307 - Why is no engagement still okay on social media?
I got a message from a new friend the other day and they mentioned that they noticed I wasn’t getting much engagement on my Facebook profile posts. They also said that sharing my videos from my page to my persona profile was an “engagement killer” in Facebook. I checked out their profile and could see they probably knew what they were talking about. Should you care about engagement? Don’t get me know, I appreciate feedback from other marketers but I already knew all that. It’s not like I’ve been online for over 5 years that I haven’t learned about how to get engagement on my personal posts and how Facebook penalizes you for sharing posts from your page. But, given I knew that already, why wasn’t I doing something about it? Why didn’t I care about the engagement enough to do something about it? When can you not care about engagement? That’s the real question, right? When is it okay to not care about engagement? The answer...

You can get that e-book for free at http://onlinesuccess12steps.com/ If you haven’t read that episode, we should make sure we first cover what is success. What is success to you? As we discussed in yesterday’s episode, you should know what success means to you. It means something different for everyone. You might care more about gardening at home or going out for walks every day. Or maybe you want to travel the world, go relax on the beach, go on shipping sprees or hiking the Amazon! No matter what success is for you, only you can decide what it is. What is success for me?

So, you got your Facebook Ad account or Business account disabled! I’ve been running Facebook Ads for over 5 years and was taken off guard when I was no longer able to edit my audiences. See, every day, I post these episodes and add the Facebook video post to the list of videos to my custom audience. But, on Dec 24th, 2020, I got the dreaded message “This a account is prohibited from advertising”! How could they do that to me? At first, I was in shock! I mean, seriously, I’m not doing anything wrong! I’m just adding video viewers to an audience! A few days before, I had tried to boost two on my daily video posts but both got rejected for “MLM”. My videos have absolutely nothing to do with that so I knew it was a false negative, but I didn’t bother asking for a review. Maybe that’s what I did wrong?

#302 - How to use LinkedIn to grow your business?
If there’s one social platform you should be using to grow your business, it’s definitely LinkedIn. You might want to just use it to find a job too. It’s really the most business oriented of the social media platforms right now. Even though it’s becoming more and more used similarly to other platforms, it’s still the best for business growth. Why LinkedIn? When you think of LinkedIn, you’re probably like most of us and just think of a job resume. It really is used by job seekers to find new jobs and recruiters to find new employees. A few years back it was an afterthought but now, many companies and recruiters won’t even consider someone who doesn’t have a LinkedIn profile. Especially in the IT (computer industry) field, which I am part of. What do you need to do? To grow your business with LinkedIn, you’ll need to do the following - Have a great profile - Have lots of connections - Have conversations with your connections -... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at…

Another year is behind us and I took lots of time off between Christmas and New Years. Now I have to catch up. I would just skip a week but that doesn’t feel right to me. What is your daily activity? The first thing you need to ask yourself is what is your daily activity. I mean, what did you not do while you were off? For me, it’s quite a few things but that’s because I choose to do those things. Why not plan ahead? One thing I should have done is plan ahead. Why didn’t I? Mainly because I didn’t even think about it because I actually thought I’d have enough time to do what I normally do. I had planned to work 4 hours a day to keep up but that made me realize that even though it takes me about only 2 hours a day, it’s not contiguous time.

It was a restful week but I can’t help to think about the plans for the New Year! This is short one I will make this post short though because it was a long year.

What did you accomplish in 2020? It was a pretty crazy year for sure, one that we will remember forever. It was also a very sad year for many, some lost loved one to the pandemic and many got very sick. We were very lucky to not have been hit by covid-19 but I know many weren’t lucky.

If there’s one thing that is constant in the course creation world, it’s that we don’t always know what our audience really wants. Sure, we can guess pretty good, especially if our audience is us in the past, but we can’t know because they aren’t really us. This is what an Ask Campaign is al about. The idea is getting to know what your audience really wants to know. Before setting up your Ask Campaign The whole idea is about making sales online with something you created to get people some results. Hopefully by now, you know what your topic is and what the general lessons or modules will be about. You’ve decided on a place to host your master class and the lessons.

Don’t kid yourself, you are good enough! The most important thing you need That takes us to the most important thing you need to host a master class. It’s belief – belief in yourself, in the ability to delivery the class. A master class is just like any other class but with a different name. Why is it a “master” class? I’m not sure what the real reason is, but for me, it’s about it being more important, being first or being more complete that just a regular class. Choosing your topic The next important thing you really need is to choose a topic that others will be willing to pay for. I mean, if you are doing it to generate some income.

Yesterday, I talked about a mastermind that you could turn into a course. I probably should have said a master class because that’s really what it is. Today, we’ll continue on that path. In the end, it’s about putting together something that has value to your audience using a live format first. What is a Master Class? I’m not sure that there’s a single definition for a master class but this is my interpretation of what it is. Personally, I see a master class as something that comes first. It’s the master template or the first version of a class. Typically, it’s a long process and takes several hours – I’d say anything above 12 hours could be considered a master class. What’s difference between mastermind and master class? Again, this is my interpretation, but for me, a mastermind is where multiple participants engage with the other participants to answer questions and give their perspective.

This is exciting – you’re gonna sell a course from a live mastermind? Wow, I love that idea – well, actually, I’m doing that! Let’s see how it’s done. Just like any other course, it need a few basics before you can hope to sell it. Getting started The first thing you’ll need to make sure you are clear on is the topic of the course. That doesn’t mean what the course is about, although that’s important too, but rather what students should expect to get out of it. Some call that “the one thing”.

Me, I’m going to do a 10 week live mastermind to teach this one thing: How to make your first sales with a webinar without stressing out about if you’re doing it right The rule of thumb is that your “one thing” should be a phrase like “How to ____ without ____” How long will your sessions be?

However, we do it all the time in all aspects of our lives. Most us don’t realize we do though. As a kid, you’ll sell your mother on giving you ice cream. As a teenager, you’ll sell yourself to that guy or girl to go to the prom or other dates. As an adult, you’ll sell yourself for the job. What’s the problem with selling if we do it all the time then?

The main 4 are: 1- Videos 2- Images 3- Text 4- Audio There are different variations to all these and we’ll get into some of them later on but there’s lots of other post types you can do too.

#286 - You need to have a tribe before you can make money
On the weekend I had a great call with a new friend I met online. He helps entrepreneurs scale their online business. We had a great talk and one thing that came out of it was that I needed to be more specific with my messages. So, this is me being more specific. Course Income Secrets should be about secrets to generating course income. Today, it’s that you need to have a tribe before you can make money What does having a tribe mean? Maybe you’re wondering what I mean by tribe. I don’t mean becoming a chief in a primitive culture when everyone looks to you for answers. Although, that is partly true. In the online world of social media, that means having fans and followers. But it’s much more than that. Why do you need a tribe? The main reason you’ll need and want a tribe is because it will help you to create your messages. Your tribe is the people who resonate with you and your message. It’s the people who you can help because... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at…

#285 - How to create daily content for your audience everywhere easily?
I was going to quit my daily videos today! I’ve been thinking about doing them just once a week instead. Many have said that a weekly video is good enough and that’s what top leaders do anyway. However, as I was creating my various posts for the coming week I realized that if I created just one video a week, there would be platforms where there would be a void to fill. What do top leaders do? The thing is that leaders might only create a single pillar video once a week, or even once a month, but they are creating content other ways. The other thing, is that, for me at least, I really feel that when you’re trying to grow your audience, you really need to be posting content daily. Does that mean creating an episode every day like I do? Maybe, maybe not, it depends. (don’t you just love that answer lol? yeah, me neither, but it’s true) If you can create content for all platforms n your phone, for example by taking pictures or videos and...

#284 - How much preparation should you do before taking action?
I was talking to a friend about my lack of results on a particular offer I had been working on. She told me that she wasn’t able to understand what my offer was and we started talking about why that was. It got me thinking about quite a few things. Namely how much I prepare before I take action. How much is too much preparing? I know that opinions on this go from one end of the scale to the other. I also think that every perspective on this is just as good as the other, so my opinion is just that, an opinion. However, I do think that almost everyone will agree that it’s possible to prepare indefinitely and never take action because it’s not perfect yet. But, where’s the line? Where is too much preparation? Is it after 20 hours, 50 hours, 200 hours? Or maybe, it’s after 1 month, 12 months or 5 years? One thing is for sure, and that no matter how long you take to prepare, you’ll never be ready to take action. When should you take... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at…

I bet you want results really fast, right? That’s certainly what I wanted to do. When I first started, I told my wife: I’ll be a millionaire in 3 months! Crazy right? Well, why not? Sure, all the leaders told me it could take years but I say enough people getting big results after just few months, so why not me? I was sure I’d defeat the odds. I didn’t become a millionaire Unfortunately, it’s been 5 years in my online journey and I’m not a millionaire yet, who’d of thought eh? But, I am getting closer day by day. I did learn lots and get lots of results I want to help you get in those 3 months instead of it taking you 5 years as well. What I discovered is that there’s a lot to learn and if you don’t go about it in a focused way, you just won’t get any results. How do you get results online?

What are the secrets to figuring out the stories you need for a Perfect Webinar? I’ve been doing webinars for years and I’m still working on it. I certainly understand why Russell Brunson talks about doing the same webinar for over a year before automating it. The reason is simple: it takes so much time to understand everything about doing a perfect webinar. What do I mean by Perfect Webinar? You might be wondering what I mean by Perfect Webinar. I mean, seriously, can a webinar really be perfect? I guess it depends on your definition of perfect. I’ve done about 5 different webinars over the years, none of which were perfect by any means. Some I did 1 or 2 times, others I’ve done a dozen times. Most people that teach how to do webinars will start by telling you that you must do them lots of times before you’ll get results (i.e. sales) So, how does your webinar become a perfect webinar?

How to go live in your Facebook group and why you can’t go live in your own group? When you create groups in Facebook, you’ll definitely want to be able to go live in those groups. Maybe you’ll want the members to go live too. What if you can’t go live? Where is the button to go live? I couldn’t go live in my group It’s really weird, but that button was nowhere to be found. I compared my groups, some that were years old and others a few months. My oldest groups had it along with 16 other options for posting. Another group, not at old had it too, along with 13 other options But the new group didn’t have the “Live Video” button. I had no idea why, do I reported it as a “not working” thing in Facebook.

That doesn’t mean easy, as a mater of fact, it’s definitely not easy but it can be simple! What is Omnipresence anyway? When I say Omnipresence and how you can find the simple steps to become omnipresent, I mean posting every day on all social media platforms. Pretty insane right? Is that really something you need to do today? I think so, yes. Top leaders are omnipresent, they post everywhere, or should I say, their team posts for them everywhere.

In my case, it’s 30 minutes or longer for my daily videos. I mean, seriously, if you look at most platforms, they want more and more video content. What does YouTube want? It’s been a long time that YouTube has been around. They really want you to create longer than 10 minute videos and the longer the videos are, the better your chances are to eventually allow ads in them. Did you know you can have ads who up in your video if they are 8 minutes or more. Of course, there’s the whole partner program and needing 1000 subscribers and 4000 views before you can receive any income from those ads placed by others but knowing there’s a 8 minute minimum helps.

I’ve been building my email list for almost 5 years now. In my first year, I created a list so people could get to know me. That first list gave them a free training I could give them for free from MLSP (My Lead System PRO – check them out at http://mlsp.jeansergegagnon.com) So, they’d get on the list by entering their name and email on page and they’d get the free training as the first email.

One of the things I know I don’t do enough is plan my content ahead of time. Planning your content Even though this is something I don’t do enough of, it is something I’ve done in the past and it’s really helped me. I probably should start doing it more again. Basically, it’s the idea that you have chosen the content you will create in advance. For example, I did 5 episodes on the Perfect Webinar framework. That was an easy one to plan because there were 3 parts (intro, content and close) so I could do each part on each day then I also introduced the thing and showed how I used it.

First, let’s try to define marketing itself. I’m not a total expert, but looking up marketing online, you get a definition like this: Marketing refers to activities a company undertakes to promote the buying or selling of a product or service Investopedia So, that’s a lot of things right? Well, attraction marketing is about those activities that are specifically tailored to attract people to your product or company. More specifically, to get them to know, like and trust the product of company. How should you use attraction marketing?

There are lots of numbers when you look at an election, right? Right now, as I write this, Trump is at 214 and Biden is at 253 wins but the amount of red (Trump) on the map seems to be so much higher. So, that brings up the question of numbers – what numbers are the important ones? Yeah, I know, that’s not a good question since in elections it’s pretty well defined but I guess my point is that depending on how you look at it, you might come to different conclusions than others. Numbers and your success online How about someone who’s not in politics? If you’re building a business online, you have lots of numbers to look at too. Like, me, my numbers are pretty low, on average, but once in a while, you’ll get crazy results. For example, when I look at my YouTube channel, I don’t even get 10 views per video, but one got 20k views and another 2.6k views.

#258 - The 2020 Election, social media and being omnipresent
What does the 2020 Election have to do with social media and being omnipresent? Before I get into that, as of the time of this writing, the standings were like this for Donald Trump at 213 and Joseph Biden at 227. There’s an awful lot of red even though Trump is behind. So, social media and being omnipresent… For one thing, politics is definitely a social media thing. What do politicians know about social media?

Have you been recording videos every day and thinking it would be great to also have a podcast on iTunes? Maybe you thought of starting a new recording just for audio but you just haven’t found the time to do both. You could use a tool to extract the audio and then upload it to a audio hosting platform. What if I told you that you could simply upload the video (or use the already uploaded YouTube link) and that’s it? I’ll show you how to do that in this post (and the video) Start by creating daily videos The first thing you’ll want to do is create daily videos. I’ve been doing daily videos since January 2016. I started by creating quick 5 minute or so lives in Facebook and then would upload them to YouTube and write up a quick blog post for it.

What is the best video outro for branding? If you’re an online marketer and you are using personal branding and attraction marketing, then the best outro would be one that attracts the viewers to you. What do I mean by that? As you know, social media accounts are great, but you’re always at the mercy of the platform. You never know if they’ll shutdown or close your account. This is why leaders recommend you to have a blog and a list. Your hub Your blog is your hub. This is where you control the content and can be sure that you will always own. Even if the hosting company or their servers disappear, you can just host somewhere else as long as you have the content. Same with your list (your email list that is). You build it over time and it’s yours forever. Attracting them to you Obviously, you need to produce content they are interested in, but what if you can’t post it all on the platform?

They say to be omnipresent but how do you do that when you only have a few minutes a day? Is it possible to be omnipresent without spending 8 hours a day creating content?

First though, let’s talk about native content… What is native content? ----------------------- You might be tempted to share you posts across platforms, like your YouTube video link to Facebook or LinkedIn. The certainly works and the platform does show the preview of the video as it should. Problem is that the platforms have algorithms to decide if your post should be shown to others in the feed. Anyone can always go to your profile and find your post, but not many do that, if anyone. In any case, this algorithm has a “if post has...

#253 - What is content syndication and why should you do it?
Have you heard that you need to syndicate your content? Maybe you’ve heard that syndication isn’t the right thing to do with social media posting. It’s even possible that someone told you that if you syndicate your content, you will loose subscribers. I don’t know about those people that told you that, but I’ll tell you that you need to syndicate your content and why in the next few paragraphs. What is syndication? First, let’s make sure you know what syndication is. Maybe you know, maybe you don’t or maybe you’re just not 100% sure. Either way, it’s important I give you my definition. The pure definition is old and has to do with newspapers. Syndication is the process of taking content from others and using it for yourself.

But why use Snapchat? Isn’t Snapchat dead? Everybody has stories now, right? There’s stories on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and now LinkedIn. Why Snapchat? For one, Snapchat was the first platform to create Stories. I guess they were ahead of their time. However, they still have many features that make it the best to use as the story recording platform. Here’s a few reasons why I prefer using Snapchat to record my story: - You can record up to 60 seconds. - You can save your recording without any watermarks (with TikTok, you can record 60 seconds too and save it, but their logo is burned into it) - You can add face lenses to your video and choose from literally thousands (Instagram and Facebook have them too, but I find Snapchat does a better...

Is it better to post Daily or Weekly content? That’s a great question, right? You probably know that I post daily but you might not know that I’ve been posting daily since 2015. I hear leaders say that posting once a week is good enough. Your fans can’t possibly keep up with your daily content. You’ll loose fans if you post daily. Why post daily or weekly? For me, I think it’s about the reason you post. You gotta ask yourself if you are posting to grow your audience or to nurture your audience. I agree that if you have an audience already and you’re not looking to grow it, posting weekly is probably best. However, if you are trying to grow your audience, you’ll want to keep posting daily. Sure, your quality won’t be as good as if you spent the whole week creating it, but let’s be honest… will you really spend more time creating the content if you do it weekly?

One of the things that is really important in today’s online business world is your company name. It used to be that you would just name your company something generic.

What’s the problem with generic names? You can certainly have a generic name as a company name. As a matter of fact, in Canada, you can incorporate a company with just a number and it’s cheaper. The problem though is that you want people to know what your company does when you name it.

#227 - What are best tools to automate social media posts?
I bet you’ve heard how important it is to post regularly, even daily and multiple times a day if you want to build a business online. The truth is that there is so much competition now that if you don’t post regularly, you’ll miss out. Your audience will stop following you because they’ll see someone else post regularly. I don’t know about you, but I don’t have enough time in a day to do it all! So, what’s the solution? Quit? Automation to the rescue If you didn’t know, Facebook, YouTube, Pinterest and Twitter allow you to schedule posts ahead of time. You can create a dozen or hundreds of posts ahead of time and schedule them so they post at the same time every day, or at specific times. This means you can create all your content for the month if you want in one or a few days and then you are done for that time. Pretty cool right? What about LinkedIn? Unfortunately, LinkedIn does not let you schedule posts ahead of... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at https://j…

#226 - How to automate social media posts with Social Jukebox?
One of my favorite automation tools is Social Jukebox at https://socialjukebox.com I love it because it’s truly a set and forget type of tool. I’ve setup posts in there 4 years ago that still give me leads. The other tools I use, like Buffer or OnlyWire need to be “fed” to be useful. Why do I love Social Jukebox so much? The main reason I love it is that whatever you setup today, as long as it’s evergreen content, will be reshared forever. Cool right? So, is it really a good idea though? Well… Automation is about doing the things you normally need to do using tools so you don’t need to do them, right? What does Social Jukebox let you do? With Social Jukebox, you setup a list of posts in a rotating queue. Instead of being a queue of 50 items that would be empty after 50 days if it posted daily, the queue is never empty. Obviously, if you only have 50 items, it might be repetitive, so you’ll need more than that, but you get... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at ht…

#225 - How to automate social media posts with OnlyWire?
Yesterday I talked about automation with Buffer so I thought I’d talk about another tool I use called OnlyWire. The name of the tool comes from the fact it’s meant to share urls.

Start by clicking the New Post button on top right. You will see a popup to enter a new post. You can post it not or schedule it for later. The real power – RSS feeds Even...

#221 - What is process to create a course from a video?
You can create a course lots of different ways. One way is to plan out your course, the modules and the lessons and then record everything, one lesson at a time. I did that a few times. It works great when you have the time for sure and is probably best. Using existing video What if your topic is super easy for you and you already did a video for it? You can also strip out sections in an existing video. There are lots of tools to do this. Camtasia, Windows Movie Player, iMovie, even YouTube lets you do it online. Personally, I use geek stuff, a command line tool called ffmpeg. How do you plan your course? Before even getting to that point though, you still need to plan your course. You’ll need to decide on the following: - Course title - Course summary - Course details or full description - Course cover photo or thumbnail - Course lesson list and titles If you already knew that you were recording the full video to split it up into a...

#219 - How to best use Personal Branding on Social Media?
If there’s one thing you need to know it’s how to use Personal Branding on social media. I know that when I started online almost 5 years ago, I thought personal branding was pretty obvious. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that it’s complicated to understand… It’s just that we get easily caught up in other things. What is Branding? Let’s start by clearly defining what Personal Branding actually is. If you think of a brand, names like Coca Cola, WalMart, Bandaid, Nike or Kleenex come to mind. Most everyone knows exactly what those are, right? If I said Nike, you’d know it’s a sports apparel company and they make shoes and clothing for athletes. Even the Brand names Bandaid or Kleenex are so intertwined in our life, that we use them as object names. We don’t say can I have a “facial tissue”, we say “can I have a Kleenex” no matter what brand the box. Same with Bandaids – it’s synonymous with… I don’t even know... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at…

If you’ve been trying to build a business online for any length of time, you’ve heard this plenty. You’ve heard that you need to build your “know, like & trust” factor. I know I have but how do you build it? Let’s first explain what it is so we’re on the same page. What is the Know, Like & Trust factor? The first thing that comes to mind when I hear that, and maybe for you too, is that I need more people to know, like and trust me. Makes sense, right? The secret is to understand that it’s a sequence of events that occur in a human’s brain. We won’t trust someone we don’t like and we can’t like someone we don’t know. Because of this, you should understand that what you really need to do is get people to know you. Getting people to know you How do you get people to know you? Well, in the “real world”, it’s letting people in so they see you and what you are about. It’s going to events like neighborhood BBQs or... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at…

So you have a video that you showed how to do it all and you want to create a course from it? You could just upload that video to YouTube and give people the link to it.

Deciding on the course structure The first thing you’ll need to do is decide of how many parts you have and split the video up.

If you want to migrate your WordPress site to another WordPress server, it’s a relatively simple process, however there are a few things to keep in mind.

The question that is on everybody’s mind is Where should you be posting content in 2020? It’s a question that needs to be asked all the time because things change all the time!

So, if you build it, unfortunately, they will not come. Building it is not enough. What is the answer then? What did I build? I’ve always known that if you build it they will come was not true. I mean, you’d have to build something truly amazing for them to come just because you built it. I build web sites and I built quite a few over the years. Most recently, because of my online social media journey, I built 3 not counting my two blogs and all my social media accounts.

Maybe you heard about Reels, maybe not, but what is reels you ask? How about using it? Where do you find it? Do you need to download a new app? Finally, why do you even care about Reels? What is Reels? If you haven’t heard, Reels is a new feature integrated into Instagram from Facebook. It allows you to create short videos (15 seconds long) that live in your profile. You can do things like add music and disappearing text to your videos too. The great thing is you don’t need to download any new apps, it’s integrated into Instagram. It’s awfully familiar, isn’t it? Wait a second, I know an app that allows me to do that. That app lets me upload 60 second videos and have disappearing stickers too. If you don’t know, I’m talking about TikTok. The app that Donald Trump has been hinting will be banned in the US. Not sure if that will ever happen but Facebook is certainly going to want to monopolize on that.

Wow, that’s insane right? You want to know how to Grow your Audience by one million, 200 thousand percent increase in a few days? I bet you do.

Is it really important to grow your audience? If that audience doesn’t buy, it’s really not that great, right So, yes, audience is important but only if they take the actions you want, like visit your blog, join your list or buy your courses.

First thing you’ll want to do is make sure your course title is going to attract the right people. What I usually follow for a heading or title in a course (as well as ads and capture pages) is the “how to x without x” formula. For example, if your course is about loosing weight, you might say something like “How to loose 20 lbs in 20 days without worrying about calories” That makes is clear what it’s about and who it’s for.

Have you heard PLR before? It stands for Private Label Rights. It’s a permission or license that a creator can give to their work. Basically, it means that you can take their work (a digital course, a video, a book, an eBook, software, plugins, pdf file, etc…) and sell it or give it to others and keep any profit. What is PLR site? It stands to reason that there would be a site that authors can publish their work and you can copy it for your own use.

You can do that on Click eCourse platform at https://clickecourse.com with deals and coupons. What are deals? I’m not sure about other platforms but on Click eCourse, a deal is a special price that has a start and end date and time. For example, say your course full price is $150, you can setup a deal to run from July 1st to July 15th at $97. That way, the visitors will see the $97 price with the original $150 striked through with the end date/time for the deal, like this: What are coupons? On Click eCourse platform, a coupon is a...

The holy grail of all social media content is that viral post. Speaking of which, I finally got a video to get 35,707 views in less than a week! The great thing about TikTok right now is that the number of creators is still much lower than the consumers of content. This means the platform highly encourages creators and by doing so makes it easier to go viral on the platforms That being said, you still need to understand the basics of how to make that happen. A little background I started my TikTok account in December 2019 after numerous pings by Gary Vee about it. I learned a lot about how to use the platform and decided to do a basic user course. I was so excited when a TikTok influencer, Maayan Gordon, with 1.7 MILLION followers reach out to me and wanted to do the course with me. So, we did it together and we did a webinar to promote it.

#167 - Top 5 tips to Create Viral TikTok videos
If there's one thing everyone wants to know, it's how to create viral content. I'm going to give you the top 5 tips on how to do that on TikTok. These tops 5 tips are very similar to other social media platforms but there is some uniqueness to TikTok. Especially right now since the platform is relatively new. What causes virality on TikTok? The way the TikTok algorithm works (so I've been told) is that your video goes through a series of buckets or layers. The first layer is your followers. A certain percentage of your followers get shown your new video in their "for you" page. Depending on the views and interaction you get from it, your video will move to the next layer. This then shows it to more people and the same thing happens on the next layer. I've heard that there are 4 layers and the top 2 are manually populated, but I can't be sure that's true although it makes sense. TikTok Virality Tip #5 The 5th most important attribute of your...

I've slowed down my growth but at my peak, I grew by over 1200 connections in a single month! First things first - your profile The first thing you need to make sure of is to setup your profile to be an All Star. That's a badge you get when you fill everything out. On top of that, I recommend a few more clarifications. First, make sure to use the same profile picture as you do on other social media platforms Also, use the same cover photo - the format will be different, but the look and feel should be the same Even though LinkedIn will give you the All Star badge for putting any old profile picture, you really want one that people will recognize you and that they will see elsewhere. Same goes for the cover photo. Become a LION! The next important thing,... READ MORE and WATCH VIDEO at htt…

One of the great things about TikTok is it's video editor. You can really do a lot of cool things in the TikTok video editor.

Results from TikTok growth hack test A week ago, I did a TikTok test. I followed a suggestion from Jeff Couret on TikTok He said to post 20 videos in 1 day... with 30 minutes between them, https://www.tiktok.com/@jeansergegagnon/video/6837515391074389254 So, I thought, why not give it a try and see? How I created 20+ videos to post I probably should have taken the time to create some better videos for my audience. Like do tips and record them all separately... put them in drafts and post them at the appointed times. But, being the automation fool I am, I decided to take the episode that I talk about growing your business on TikTok (click to go to blog post) and split it up in 1 minute pieces. As you probably know, TikTok allows you to upload unto 60 second videos. So I took my 34+ minute video and split it into 35 parts (I used ffmpeg with a script and it took 2 minutes - literally) How I posted them I started by posting the first video and...

I've been using it for about 6 months now and I've grown slowly to 764 followers now. I'm certainly not the top influencer on there but I've learned a lot since December 2019. How did I get started on TikTok? I don't know about you, but I've been hearing Gary Vee talk about TikTok for a while. I've also been putting it off and today, I regret that.

I remember wondering what did my mentor mean when they said I needed to build rapport? It's funny because I totally knew how... I just didn't know I did! I was great at it in person, at family or office BBQs or weddings... But, somehow... Online, I forgot how... Seriously though, there is a difference but not as much ad you'd think.

Course Income Secrets - Should You Get A VA?
If you're building a business online, selling courses or growing your audience, you'll have lots to do. When I started online almost 4 years ago, and until a month ago, I did it all myself. I spent hours a week on social media growing and engaging my audience... I spent hours creating content and sharing it... I learned how to create video thumbnails... How to produce quote images... I learned lots and did it all myself. Don't get me wrong, you need to do that so you know the ins and outs of the online marketing world but do you really need to do it forever? So I decided to hire a VA, a Virtual Assistant and it's been awesome. I'm super happy with my decision to do that and I'll explain the process I went through to find a good VA.
