You Can Forget About Selling Books Like 'Mad Men'!

Posted on January 28, 2015 at 10:07am 0 Comments

AMC’s Mad Men is a fascinating look into a NYC advertising firm in the 1960’s.

That dark, brooding, conniving, out-of-control Don Draper

Don Draper and his brood convince clients to spend beaucoup bucks on campaigns to sway (manipulate?) American consumers.

Well, as you know, those heady days are in the rear view mirror …

Traditional, interruption-based marketing is fading

It’s still here of course … radio and television advertising, billboards, telemarketing, direct mail, print advertising, and on and on.

But it’s becoming less and less effective and people are learning how to block it out.

Whatever you're doing, when it comes to authentically reaching people today, inbound…

Will the Creator Show You Secrets? ... What We Can Learn from George Washington Carver

Posted on January 21, 2015 at 6:30am 0 Comments

"Show Me Secrets"

George Washington Carver would begin each day with prayer that God would reveal secrets to him about plants and vegetables. It is reported that once Carver prayed, “Mr. Creator, show me the secrets of your universe.”

Giving himself to the lowly peanut, he identified several hundred elements in its seed and shell.

As he put the elements together again in different forms, he uncovered over 300 uses for the peanut including various kinds of foods, oil, paint, ink, soap, shampoo, facial cream, plastics, and many other products.

The Art of the Possible

What would be revealed to us if we really asked with humility and then followed through with the hard work of learning and discovery? What information do…

Being Cheap is Costing Me!

Last night (before watching Ohio State trump the Oregon Ducks in the national championship!) I was trying to decide if I should subscribe to Lynda.com. The online learning platform is loaded with world-class expert courses on InDesign, as well as many other topics like software, business, personal development, professional development, and much more. 

I've used their 10-day trial before and was very impressed. I've also used excerpts from their courses which they provide on YouTube.

Fresh Consecration (Personal Detox) Precedes Amazing Things in 2015

Posted on January 6, 2015 at 9:30am 0 Comments

I have to remind myself that if I'm going to win, I'm going to win from within. My internal state creates my external state.

I believe there's something I can learn from God's challenge to the Israelites as they were about to enter a whole new level. They were on the edge of entering the promised land ... a territory for them which flowed with milk and honey.

Joshua told the people, "Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do amazing things among you" (Joshua 3 NIV).

As they went to a new level in their personal consecration, they set the table for amazing things to happen beginning the next day.

What can this mean for me practically? Just a few thoughts ...

  1. Detox my thinking. We all know our emotional lives follow…

Brian,

Welcome to the Online Selling and ecommerce Group here at the 48 Days community.  I just looked at your site.  Love the niche and the site.  Both are great examples of the new online selling. It's not a picture and a price.  Instead it's about answering someone's problem, building trust and offering something of so much value that people want to purchase it from you.  Old fashion selling is dead, now it's about helping your customer purchase.  Excited to have you as part of our growing group.

Hi Brian,

Thank you for the friend invite and the great advice on my question in the "Write It Forward" group. 

Have a tremendous day!

Hey, Brian, thanks for posting on 48days.net. 
The forums are specifically a place to ask questions and get advice from folks. I'm assuming your post is looking for guidance somewhere, but since you're not asking for anything and just leaving a link to your website, we consider it spam.
To avoid being deleted in the future, please remember the forums are a place to ask honest questions and get guidance from your peers. If everyone was doing that, the forums would be an awfully boring place, filled with links to member's websites.

I'd love to see a blog post here from you, perhaps expanding on something already on your website.

Thanks,
Justin Lukasavige

Hey Brian,

You are so welcome. Enjoy the site--it's powerful!

As an FYI, one of the most powerful things about 48Days.NET is the many Groups. You can hit the ‘Groups’ tab above and search for anything you are interested in. I happen to lead a couple of groups here for folks interested in writing or speaking. Not sure if you have interest in those areas, but if so, I’d be honored to offer what I can and include you in our discussions. In fact, I'd love to have you jump into the discussion. The more voices, the more we all learn.

Here are the links to these two groups:
* Speak It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Speakers!
* Write It Forward -- REAL Success and Profit for Writers!

Wishing you REAL Success...

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian
