How to Land Advertisers for Your Self Published Magazine

By How to Land Advertisers for Your Self Published Magazine, Magazine Publishing, Magazine Self-Publishing, Magazines, marketing, Self Publishing, Self Publishing a Magazine, Self-Published Magazine

What if you could create low-tech marketing for your business that actually paid for itself or created recurring, passive income?

Selling advertising in your self-published magazine makes this possible.

For example, if you spent $5k to self-publish a digital and print magazine plus build out the subscriber website, social media posts, and all the other bells and whistles, you would only need to sell five full-page ads at $1000 each in order to get the system built!

With only five sales, you would break even, and pocket the remaining advertising revenue as profit every time you publish.

Plus, you’d have a marketing tool that could be used to:

  • build your industry authority
  • generate leads from your website
  • close better deals with prospects
  • sell more to your existing clients
  • stay top of mind with referral partners
  • and more!

But, what would make a business want to advertise in your magazine? What tools do you need in place in order to land sales? Is it possible to land advertisers if your business is brand new?

I answer those questions and more in this week’s video.

How I Use Trello to Gain an Unfair Marketing Advantage

By marketing, Marketing porjects, Project Management, Project management tool, Software, Trello

When I started building my consulting firm and marketing agency team (we work remotely), I knew I needed a tool to help me keep on top of my ever-growing to-do list. It didn’t take long for me to discover Trello.

Trello makes it easy to organize any marketing projects with anyone. Use Trello to visualize and manage your marketing machine and stay on target with due dates and under budget. Create boards for each project you’re working on, then add lists for individual tasks within that project. Now you can organize your marketing tasks just like you organize every other aspect of your life with lists.

Trello is probably one of the best software platforms I ever started using for project management. It’s incredibly user-friendly and flexible, and it syncs across all your devices. I use Trello for all my tasks, personal and professional, at home and in the office.

Trello is a great tool if you want to give your marketing, or any other project for that matter, an advantage. Use it for as many things as you can, integrate it into your marketing program, and stick to the plan. You’ll find it is easy to use and helps you get more done much faster than you could otherwise.

In this week’s video, I pull back the curtain and show you my exact process on Trello including workflows and little hacks I’ve discovered along the way to customize it to fit your needs.

Marketing Tips to Win in a Recession

By avoid marketing mistakes, Content Marketing, Content Marketing Strategy, marketing, Marketing Strategy, marketing success, Marketing tips, Marketing Tips to Win in a Recession, mondern marketing, Win in a Recession

Consumer behavior is at the heart of marketing. When the economy dips, some consumers set strict priorities and reduce spending. But, not all. 

Depending on the day, you will find varying opinions from the talking heads in the media on if a recession is coming. Some say yes, some say no. 

This confusing information can lead some entrepreneurs to go into “wait and see” mode. 

Instead of going full-throttle on their marketing, they’ll throttle back, which is a big mistake.

According to a Harvard Business Review study of How to Market in a Downturn: 

“Companies that put customer needs under the microscope, take a scalpel rather than a cleaver to the marketing budget, and nimbly adjust strategies, tactics, and product offerings in response to shifting demand are more likely than others to flourish both during and after a recession.”

In this video, you will learn some simple, but important concepts to better understand consumer behavior during a downturn (or not).

You will see:

  • Which consumer changes nothing when faced with economic uncertainty and why
  • Which buyer makes decisions based on budget and how to pivot your offering to appeal to them
  • How understanding two simple concepts about recession psychology could save your business

The Mindset You Need for Modern Marketing Success

By marketing, Marketing mindset, Marketing Mistakes, Marketing Strategy, marketing success, mindset, mindset for marketing success, mindset to success, mondern marketing, success mindset

Several years ago, I came home from a busy day at the office of the business I co-owned and collapsed into bed crying in frustration.

As a business owner, I was doing what everyone else in my industry was doing to get clients. 

I was going to networking meetings. I joined the early morning business groups. I was flexible with our prices and packages and responded to Requests for Proposals.

But, I had enough. Selling one-to-one was NOT working for me anymore. I was run ragged and officially D.O.N.E.

That day everything changed for me. I decided in my heart and mind to do the opposite of what my competition was doing.

I now have a business I love, clients that stay, pay, and refer, and I do it all in less time and with more ease and flow.

In this modern marketing world, having the right attitude and mindset towards marketing and selling is key to your success.

It is the number one problem to solve, above and beyond the latest tips and tricks.

How you approach marketing mentally is so important, especially if you want to experience results, freedom finally, and enjoy the process.

In this week’s video, you will see:

  • the common enemy that holds most entrepreneurs back from ever making the significant impact they desire to make
  • how to overcome that common enemy even if you feel unsure
  • the real reason your assistant or social media manager can’t get results
  • the underlying issue that’s resulting in a disconnect between your market and your message

By Clients, Content Marketing, Content Marketing Strategy, marketing, Marketing Strategy, Sales, STOP Chasing Clients

In case you had illusions to the contrary, no one is sitting around hoping and praying that he will receive your sales letter. When it arrives, it is most likely an unwelcome pest. How do you earn your welcome as a guest? By immediately saying something that is recognized by the recipient as important and valuable and beneficial.” ― Dan S. Kennedy

If you’re not attracting your ideal, perfect people it’s probably because your message is coming across as spammy emails, unwanted business cards, or intrusive advertisements. The cure for this common problem is to STOP chasing clients and START being of value.

In this video, you will learn three key marketing strategies to implement that will help you get more business without feeling sales-y.

You’ll understand:

  • the first thing you need to work out before you spend a dime on marketing
  • the reason why the most successful companies dominate their competition (with two real life examples)

  • how luxury brands become irresistible despite being 10x the price and how to apply their secrets
