The Hermit On The Mountain

The Hermit on the Mountain

A hermit lived high on a mountain top above a township, and every day as the people below him scurried around, doing their daily tasks, the old hermit would watch.

He had everything that he needed on his mountain, there was plenty of food and supplies, he had a small vegetable garden near his cabin, and he kept a few animals to supply his needs, near a rock pool filled with water that flowed down from further up the mountain.

His life was quiet and content, after breakfast and his morning chores, he would make his lunch and take it to the rocky outcrop where he could sit and watch the activity in the town below.

The town was a long way down, the people running around performing their daily deeds seemed like ants to him, but even through all the bustle and busyness it seemed so peaceful. It looked to him like a great ballet or dance.

He watched the activities in the town every day, finally he decided that he would go down to the town and experience this beautiful ballet for himself. He took his coat and started down the mountain. As he descended, he started to hear strange noises, the closer he got to the town, the louder they became.

Finally, he reached the foot of the mountain. The noise here was almost deafening, everywhere he turned there were people rushing around doing tasks he couldn’t even begin to understand, as he tried to walk through the streets, he was getting pushed and jostled by the crowds of people.

He could not understand where the peaceful and beautiful ballet had gone.

Unable to take it anymore, the hermit fled from the town, back to the safety of his mountaintop. Arriving home, he went to the outcrop and looked down again upon the town, to his amazement the beauty and silence had returned. He could still see all the ants rushing around below, but there was no noise anymore, all the screaming sounds and mixture of voices were gone, replaced with the serene silence he had always heard before.

He sat down and stared in amazement, asking himself how could such peaceful beauty come from such noisy chaos?

In our lives and businesses, we’ll often feel overwhelmed by what’s going on around us, but is it really the stressful pressure-cooker we believe it to be? When we feel overwhelmed, our natural response if to give up, to break down. But instead whenever you feel those times approaching, try to step outside of your normal behavioural patterns, try to step away from the daily issues and look back at them from afar.

Often, you’ll find that the situation or decision that you have lost control of, that is stressing you out, when you step away from it and see it without all the other clutter, it’s not half as bad as you think, and often when you view it from the outside (looking inwards) you can see the solution clearer than you would when you’re right inside the problem.

Each day, take a moment out, step outside of your business, your problems, find your ‘mountaintop’ and look down on your life from there.

It’s all about your perspective, when the one you have isn’t serving you, simply get up and go to another side of it.

Are You Making This Email Formatting Mistake?

In the “old days” when people were only reading emails on computer screens, we were told to “word-wrap” the email text. This was done in order to keep the lines short and make it easier on the eyes. Easier to read…

However, now days many people read emails on their smart phones. Did you ever see how an email that is word-wrapped for a PC looks on the phone? It looks terrible!

It’s way more than just esthetics – people are less likely to read those emails which in turn will hurt your bottom line.

So what can we do to overcome this problem? Here is what I consider to be the better solution to this problem.

Instead of word-wrapping your text, write it without using line breaks inside paragraphs and place it all inside a <div> with a size limit.

When editing your html email, go to source view and add a DIV directive so it surrounds your text, like this: <div style=”max-width: 400px;”> your email text here</div>.

This will, on the one hand, limit the width of the text to 500 pixels (you can choose any size you like) and allows it to shrink down and auto-warp when viewing it on a smaller screen (such as a smart phone).

6 Ways To Improve Focus When Working From Home

The great thing about online marketing is you can do it from home.

The bad thing about online marketing is…

…you can do it from home.

Which often means endless distractions from the internet, the kids, the pets, the neighbors, the housework and so forth.

Here’s how to improve your focus and get productive, starting today:

  1. Follow your own natural rhythms. Some people are more productive and focused in the morning while others do better in the evening. Figure out which hours work best for you, and then block those hours out. Schedule nothing during that time except for work.
  2. Notify your family, friends and anyone else that you have working hours and don’t want to be distracted.
  3. Have a place to work where you do nothing but work. If your workstation is also your play station, your browse-the-internet station and so forth, it will be too easy to get distracted.
  4. Put on music or tones that help you to focus. You’ll find these on YouTube when you search for focus music.
  5. Set deadlines for everything you do. If you have deadlines to honor, you’re more likely to get the work done.
  6. Plan your breaks. Set a timer for 20 minutes, and when it goes off, get up and walk around or do jumping jacks for a minute. You’ll be re-energized and ready to get back to work with clearer focus than if you just try to power through.

Working from home is fantastic in its flexibility, as long as you manage to focus your time.

How to get 50, even 100x more engagement on your offers

Can you guess what today’s hottest social platform for business and branding is called? Here’s a hint: it’s Instagram.

I know what you’re thinking: “isn’t that just for college kids to post selfies and stuff?” And maybe it used to be. But there’s so much more to Instagram than pretty pictures. Instagram users engage 52 times more than Facebook users, and 127 times – no kidding – more than Twitter users.

Maybe it’s because Instagram’s toolbox provides an ideal way to target your best customers and present your brand, offers, and fun updates to people who are genuinely and already interested in seeing them?

Maybe it’s just that right now, people are fatigued by other platforms. Instagram’s a breath of fresh air to many and, now that it’s got over 400 million active users without too many brands in your face (unlike some others I could name…) it could be exactly what your business needs to explode in 2017 and beyond.

Because engagement equals sales, folks, and building relationships with customers on Instagram is super, super easy once you know what you’re doing.

My good friend and colleague Phil Carrick has just released an over-the-shoulder FREE video training course which, like all his digital marketing training products, walks you through everything you need to know to master Instagram for your business and build a huge, loyal, sales-driving following.

Phil’s going to show you:

  • Exactly what tools to use and when
  • How to create content people love to share
  • Why engagement is so sky-high and how to take advantage of it

The best part is, he supports students personally via his members’ area (you’ll get lifetime unlimited access) where you’ll meet some power-playing online entrepreneurs to learn from and share with.

Actually… maybe the best part is that anyone can do this in just a few minutes a day, even if you have zero tech skills. All you need is a mobile phone and you can start building your Instagram Empire right now, today.

Don’t wait – somewhere, right now, one of your competitors is already on it, making sales like crazy and loving every second.

Take a look – this could be the easiest, most efficient audience-nurturing strategy you’ll ever use.

Phil’s a solid guy. He says (and I agree) this video training course is awesome, and that if you decide differently you’re absolutely guaranteed a friendly, no-strings refund. Nothing to lose, tons to gain… go for it! Start today. It’s FREE!

This is why you NEED to use the Facebook Pixel Today

The other day I asked the gang in my mastermind group if they know what Facebook Pixel is and if they use it. The replies I got caught me by surprise: about 40% did not know what it is and another 50% knew about it but never used it!

I believe it’s high time we shad some light on the Pixel, so… Let’s talk about the Facebook Pixel!

What is the Facebook Pixel?

The Facebook Pixel is a snippet of code you place on your website pages that allows Facebook to collect analytics data about your website visitors.

Why is the Facebook Pixel important for my business?

The basic function of the Pixel is to give you conversion tracking for your website visitors. i.e. you can see what actions your audience is taking.

Since we are using Facebook to do the tracking, it is possible for Facebook to identify the website visitors among its members. With this, Facebook enables you to build something called a Custom Audience, which is a list of Facebook members (who visited your website).

The importance of the Custom Audience is the fact you can use it as a target for advertising campaigns.

I’m sure you have experienced this yourself: you visit a website, searching for something, and then you start seeing ads on Facebook for the product or subject you were looking at. How do they do this? You may have guessed already… with Facebook Pixel!

This marketing technique is called re-targeting or re-marketing and is gaining popularity, as its proven to be highly effective.

PixelWhy do I think it is essential to start using the Facebook Pixel from day one?

You’ve probably been told you need to build a list with every marketing effort you do – and rightly so. A list (or email list) is your best and most basic asset. With a list of your own you have an audience you can turn to at any time and market to.

The biggest problem with building a list is the fact that most people who will visit your pages will only be there once. Even those that will visit more than once will not leave a trace and certainly will not sign-up for your list. This is especially true when you are starting out and people don’t know you or about you.

Using the Facebook Pixel you can recover a big portion of that lost traffic to your pages – in the form of a Custom Audience. Then you can use the custom audience to create very targeted ad campaigns, targeting people who already know you – they have been to your site!

BTW, why is it called a “pixel”?

The basis for the mechanism that allows Facebook to track your website visitors revolves around the communications that goes on between the visitors web browser and Facebook, when the browser is asking Facebook to supply it with an image to display. In order for that image to be as un-intrusive as possible, it is set to be the size of a single pixel – hence the name: “pixel”.

Where do I got from here?
