You’re a digital genius and probably don’t even know it! By Doyle Buehler
Where is your digital genius?
Do you know how to unlock it, discover it and uncover it? Have you found it yet?
It could be closer than you think. It’s no longer about your business, by itself, in isolation.
It’s not about being an expert in the digital field either. Nor ‘just’ about the tech. You have better things to worry about, right? Wrong.
The future of your business is counting on you becoming one. Every entrepreneur has the capability to become a digital genius. And, the bottom line is that you need to become one. Why? Those who learn to best understand the environment that they are operating in are the ones most capable of being able to leverage it to their advantage.
What do I mean? A great chef needs to know how to operate within their environment of the kitchen. The greatest chef still needs to know how to cook amazing food. This is your core business.
What if your competitor becomes better skilled at operating in the digital environment than you? Will you survive? Possibly.
If you want to survive the new environment, then it will take some new thinking.
Your ‘why’ is your core business – you are the “Chef”, after all.
And your ‘How’?
What if you could grow and scale your business by simply knowing HOW best to navigate the digital world? This is where you can put all of the pieces together, to master the online space – the environment where you are doing your “cooking”.
So, how are you going to develop your digital genius?

Corporate Social Responsibility Leads Marketing Trends
Most large corporations pay attention to their target audience, so charity marketing growing is no surprise. Millennial values are preventing corporations from putting profits over the welfare of the planet. The old ways of doing things no longer work, so corporate social responsibility leads marketing trends now. Charity marketing is becoming more popular due to way buyers respond to it. People are starting to support good causes and companies that support them more and more.
The internet and social media groups are making a huge difference in the way business is done. Sharing is caring is growth mindset that is making raising money for charity a lot easier. It is also making it easier to let your friends know about companies that are less than ideal. Businesses everywhere are learning every day that it pays to have corporate social responsibility. Companies are starting to pay attention to how they do things due to fear of backlash. One reckless employee on social media can do a ton of damage, so many companies want to do charity marketing for PR reasons.
The SPN project can help you make win-win marketing deals with companies that may want to support your nonprofit.
Social Media Groups Can Help Companies Show CSR
The SPN project and millennials in general share immense buying power. Social media groups like #SPN gain power due to new members, so charity marketing grows in power daily too. People around the globe become more connected everyday. We also become more aware of all that is going on behind the scenes in the business world. The buck stops here on social media and the internet in general. Groups like SPN help regulate the business world while also promoting good causes and nonprofit organizations. This is why Win-Win Marketing & Networking is becoming so popular.
Consumers are getting smarter every day in part due to social media groups and easy access to info. Now-a-days a consumer can learn everything about your business in three clicks of a button, so it pays to help. People are using this information to make buying decisions. Social media groups with thousands of people can get causes out in front of millions of people, so it pays to engage.
Offering great products and prices is no longer enough, because you have to also have corporate social responsibility. Companies have to be careful about their brand more than ever due to social media. This is why so many companies are starting to practice win-win marketing. Making friends with nonprofit leaders helps companies avoid PR nightmares. Companies pay attention to corporate social responsibility (CSR) more than ever now due to the way it affects the bottom line.
Win-Win is a basic concept, so a lot of people are really starting to get it. In this blog, we will cover win-win marketing and win-win networking. This material can change your life, so take it seriously and please feel free to contact us with questions.
The #SPNgroup on LinkedIn is how the Service Professionals Network #SPN project got its start. Mike O’Connor began the #SPN project, so he could help promote good causes and people. That mission is the same today.
The only real rule in the #SPN project is the Golden Rule. The #SPN project has three social media groups that all offer their own advantages. For example, the Google+ community is great due to the #SEO value plus ones from other SPN members gives your website and images.
These groups are full of small to large business owners and entrepreneurs from around the world. Shopping our Amazon links help SPN help others.
Win Win Marketing
A lot of people are starting to see the power of win-win marketing. The power is obvious due to the rapid growth of companies that use win-win marketing. Companies like Motor City Spindle Repair, FYI and charities like the URTFC are growing rapidly through win-win marketing.
There are more companies and charity organizations every day that are using win-win marketing to grow through social media and direct sales. These companies are growing due to their engagement on social media. They work together within their own companies. Their companies also work together to help promote each other through social media. They build tribes of people with common goals. The #SPN project is home to a lot of tribes and a big tribe for all like-minded people.
Motor City Spindle Repair really has it down better than about anyone. Ted Ladzinski has grown his business a lot by getting his team going on social media. Their growth really took off, when they all bought into the Win-Win growth mindset. Everyone in this picture really does have all that experience and they also help their company grow through win-win marketing on social media.
What is Win-Win marketing? How does it work?
Win-Win marketing is not as hard to figure out as it may seem. There is strength in numbers and people can build much large social media audiences by joining social media groups like those in the #SPNproject. Join the Service Professionals Network (#SPN) social media groups on LinkedIn, Facebook and Google+.
Joining the #SPN groups is not enough though. You also have to share content and engage with the content of others. The place where most people fail in social media is the act of reciprocity. It is one thing to share great content, but why should people care?
Sam Hurley with OPTIM-EYEZ is the master of it paying back social media love as you can see through his Twitter feed. The guy didn’t even have a website, but he had a growth mindset, so he became the number one digital marketing expert in the world. Sam was featured in Forbes, Entrepreneur, and Inc. all without even having his own site up. He did this by working hard, providing value and also by playing the win-win game. His growth is built on a foundation of kindness and playing well with others.
Therefore, it should be no surprise that he is a big inspiration behind the term win-win marketing.
Grunt Style does Win-Win marketing
Grunt Style and some of their brand ambassadors like Top Rated MMA use win-win marketing to sell their products and services. They also use win-win marketing to help raise money and awareness for good causes. Take this t-shirt drive to help save Rachael Blaze’s life and raise awareness for breast implant illness for example. (shirt drive is over now)
Thank you for helping Save Racheal Blaze’s Life, Grunt Style!
American consumers see the brands that take care of their veterans and support good causes. The more companies work to exceed expectations the better the world will be. People are tired of helping big companies that don’t give back to the people that buy their products and use their services. It’s not all about the quality t-shirts or even the bacon or beer guarantee. It’s the way that they go to bat for the little guy and drop a rope down to help people rise. That is why the Service Professionals Network is proud to support these companies and social media personalities.
No one should care why you are helping people. The point is that you’re helping people when a lot of companies and people, in general, are looking out for number one only. It is refreshing and endearing to see brands both large and small doing what they can to help people. Paying it forward and manners are making a come back, because of companies that practice win-win marketing.
These brands know it is more about helping people than it is just helping the bottom line.
People want to know the difference between win-win marketing and win-win networking, so here we go. When you are marketing a good cause or a company that is promoting a good cause you’re practicing win-win marketing. There is an immediate mutual benefit between two or more parties in win-win marketing.
With win-win networking, the reward isn’t immediately financial or necessarily relating to business. Win-Win networking happens when two or more parties began a relationship that isn’t based immediately off the bottom line.
When you’re engaging on a social media post that doesn’t directly lead to improving your business, then you’re networking. You are also helping your contact with their marketing. You’re helping them win in a lot of ways. When that person comes back and engages on your social media posts, then they are helping you win.
With Win-Win networking different parties are engaging at the same events or on the same social media posts. That doesn’t mean they share a mutual interest other than helping each other through networking.
So you want to know how to make money kicking ass on social media?
I don’t blame you, because most people use social media in some way, shape or form every day. More and more people are also using social media marketing to make money working from home too.
The idea of making a living by starting a home-based business and working from home is appealing because freedom is an addiction.
People are meant to be free. Making a decent living working from home in your spare time also provides a lot of freedom that most people don’t have.
The great thing about making a living on social media is that there are hundreds of thousands of people doing it successfully that you can use as an example.
Some do it a lot better than I do. I’ll probably also never catch up to some of them, but that’s ok. You don’t have to be an internet Jedi or digital marketing genius to make a living working from home online. 🙂 🙂 🙂 I’m proof. 🙂 🙂 🙂
10 Steps To Making Money Online Through Social Media:
Open Your Mind: Keep an open mind and ask a lot of questions, but take everything with a grain of salt. I question anyone that labels themselves an expert because it tends to mean they’re less eager to learn. Listen to new ideas and compare them to what you know to be true, but don’t take advice as internet law.
Engage: You’ll never kick ass on social media if you can’t get a hang of the social part. One of the best ways to get started in social media is to reach out to influencers that are known for engaging back. Those are the real influencers and they’re also known for being helpful for a reason. If you get the answers you seek, then pay it forward by sharing that information with the next would be an online entrepreneur. Always pay it forward. There is a reason why win-win networking and marketing is becoming so popular.
Apply Consistency: Each social media platform has different influencers that stand out. Few influencers really stand out on multiple platforms, because each platform takes a decent amount of effort to get to that level. I’m known for my LinkedIn, but people like Sam Hurley and John White put me to shame on Twitter. Find two or three social media platforms that you want to focus on, so you can apply the right amount of consistent effort to each one. There are a ton of ways to make money and become an influencer online, but few are easy or will happen overnight. Most people that make money online do so because they do what it takes to make it happen. If you’re working a full day at your day job, then you have to sacrifice a few hours more each day to start building your online revenue. People that don’t make it work on the internet never actually got to work or gave up. Where would you be today, if you began last year and did a little bit every day?
Strength In Numbers: Find networking and industry groups to join and apply the rules above. Participating in groups and adding value to them will help you grow your network and audience quicker than anything. I may admittedly be a little bias, but I suggest joining the Service Professionals Network group on LinkedIn. A good group will have members that support each other and help each other succeed.
Be A Kindness Enthusiast Focusing On Positivity: Follow the golden rule online, because it’s hard to not like someone that treats you with kindness. The internet has a lot of negative people on it, so it’s not terribly hard to stand out by just being kind. There is always a way to make your point or debate while including a little kindness. If you can’t think of something nice, or at least diplomatic to say, then it’s best to keep on scrolling.
Sharing Is Caring: The biggest trick to making money on the internet is getting traffic to your site or links. Having a few good social media buddies also makes a huge difference. Social media shares can drive traffic directly to your site or links, but they also help build up trust factors with Google and other search engines. Sharing content helps the author and also makes them more likely to share your content. Now, don’t get obnoxious and share a ton of crappy content, because that will kill your credibility. Share freely, but make sure it passes the quality test and adds value to your audience. Find different ways to highlight your connections to help them out and build a solid #WinWin relationship. I did this recently using a kick ass and totally FREE digital Marketing tool:
Be Unique By Being Yourself: There are billions of people using the internet, so there is an audience for everyone. Be yourself and follow the rules above and you will build an audience. People follow people that they like and one of the best ways to make friends on the internet is keeping it real. It’s always important to be as authentic as possible, but make sure you avoid doing certain things that destroy brand names daily.
Don’t Miss Good Opportunities To Get An Edge: Change management is perhaps the best skill one could possess if they want to make money working from home. Digital Marketing is a constantly changing industry because new trends and technology are always popping up. It’s important that you take opportunities when they’re available because there is nothing worse, then missing a good opportunity due to fear. A lot of people are already regretting missing the opportunity to claim good usernames on FYI.to. (Here is more info on how to make money using FYI)
Make It As Easy As Possible To Get Paid: You can make money in a variety of different ways through affiliate advertising. Thanks to FYI you don’t even need a website or blog. However, I also strongly suggest getting a WordPress site going, so you can build a long-term business. You can also make money through Google AdSense if you generate enough traffic to your website or blog.
Cut Out The Negative Influences In Your Life And Take Care Of Yourself: Everyone making money online also had to make the decision to ignore the negativity in their way. There are a million excuses you can tell yourself and people will come up with another million reasons why you can’t make money on the internet. [email protected]#$ that…twice. You can do anything you want in this world if you want it bad enough and work. There are a lot of people online that want to see you succeed. I know, because I am one of them.
