How NOT To Use Instagram For Ecommerce

Hi everyone,

In this video I take you behind the scenes of one of our recent auctions (Destination Dresden) and discuss how NOT to use Instagram for ecommerce – specifically I discuss a tactical error I frequently see. I also show you a behind the scenes look at how we use Instagram, Pinterest, Youtube, Facebook, and email – to engage lots of people and produce dramatic results.

I think you’ll enjoy this video even if you don’t want to use eBay!

Having any trouble viewing the video? Watch it here.

Ps. I made a booklet out of the transcription for ya … Get it here

Pps. I’d love to answer any questions you have about these topics! Just leave a comment.

Tutorial: Using Instagram and Pinterest Together

Hi everyone,

In this week’s update I do something a bit different and record a screen-capture video showing you how to use all your awesome Instagram photos on Pinterest – in a quick and easy way – to engage with lots of prospects and customers and make more sales.

I’ve also tried my best to create a nice booklet, with pictures, of how to do the step-by-step actions. Download it here if you want to print it out and keep it.

Honored to serve,

Provoking Customer Response

Hi everyone,

This weekend Cinnamon and I were asked to speak at an event in Monterey – so we took the opportunity to also celebrate our 20th Annivesary! So I shot this week’s video on the balcany – and I focused on answering the question,

“do you have a challenge getting people to respond to your marketing messages?”

Watch the video on Youtube at this link: http://youtu.be/d9tsCk-1fOo

Comment Contest: As an example of one response-provoking method – I’m adding a fun comment contest to this post. Simply answer the question,

“I could provoke customers to engage with my products by doing _____________.”

Give me an idea or two, (and if you can’t think of any – that’s okay too – just tell me what you think about this topic). In 3 days, (September 2nd), I’ll pick a winner at random and they’ll receive 3 of my best-selling books…

How To Start Your Freedom Business While Avoiding Assumed Requirements



Screen Shot 2014-09-22 at 3.48.52 PM

Hi everybody,

In this week’s video I explain what “assumed requirements” are – and how to overcome them so you can start your freedom (online) business today!

Plus – I’ve got the full transcript saved as a little PDF booklet file for ya – almost like a little booklet. I hope you enjoy it. But please note – it’s a transcript of the video so it’s not necessarily the smoothest of writing.

Jason

Ps. I’d love to hear your perspective – tell me what you think – are you battling against any assumed requirements that are stopping you from starting or growing your online business?

Pps. I’d be super grateful if you’d pin the booklet or the video to Pinterest! Thanks in advance!

Using Amplifiers To Increase Sales

Hi everyone,

In this week’s episode I discuss “amplifiers” and how to use them to increase your sales.

Tell me what you think about “amplifiers” and let me know what questions you have about how to use them.

Ps. Yes – I happen to be wearing the same shirt on the same day two weeks in a row – I guess I’m going to have Cinnamon start helping me so I don’t keep doing that :)

Adding Rituals To Increase Sales

Hi everyone,

In March of this year we started publishing our weekly newsletter with a commitment to doing it as a trial for 3-months to see how it would go. We are so grateful that many of you have tuned in regularly to learn about sales and marketing.

Today we are announcing a format change. We will continue doing the weekly newsletter but it is going to be morphed into a weekly video! From now on – We’ll be doing a short, practical, educational video each week. I hope you enjoy them. Let me know what you think about this first one – leave a comment below. Do you think adding rituals can help you improve your sales?
