    How To Differentiate Yourself Online With Phil Gerbyshak and Beth Ziesenis

    If you're sitting at the airport and you got cool socks on, people can't help but notice.

Tune in to learn more 🎬 watch the full episode of Stop Doing Nothing —  How To Differentiate Yourself Online With Phil Gerbyshak and Beth Ziesenis.

    ✔️  The start of real conversations is the very beginning of the funnel. What makes the best conversation starters are things that you love to use or wear and show your brand. 
    These have become talking points that establish relationships with people who may need our products or services now or in the future. 
    ✔️   If you're someone selling YOU, be the person they buy at all times. Whether online or offline, you are the billboard of the brand you seek to establish. How do you get comfortable living up to it? 
    ✔️ Author, speaker and self-professed nerd Beth Ziesenis shares the importance of looking at things you like and who you truly are when considering your personal brand elements. Her color and brand name all came accidentally and organically tied up neatly with her tech guru, speaker and trainer professions.
    ✔️ Social Selling Expert Phil Gerbyshak has 20 pairs of different colors of glasses. His successful branding gets people asking: 'What color is Phil going to wear on the next live stream?" Letting people pick his specs when he goes out to speak makes people notice, if not remember, him even more.  _________________________________________________________________

    Content Promotion, Syndication and Distribution

    Content Promotion, Syndication and Distribution

    If you're looking to amp up your omnipresence in the world wide web this new year, it pays to know which tools work, which helps save you a lot of keystrokes and makes repurposing content easier. 
    Tune in to learn more 🎬 watch the full episode of Stop Doing Nothing — Content Promotion, Syndication and Distribution with Phil Gerbyshak. 
    What You Will Discover: 
    ✔️ Do you make your content work hard for you? The open secret of achieving that is content atomization. Leverage your webinars and other long-form content and break them down strategically into smaller ones such as posts, articles, infographics, and podcasts. 
    ✔️ Treat your content like how real-world TV shows work. Think of it this way: you record, and the camera stops. After airing or getting broadcast, nobody will ever see it again if you do nothing. See what shows as Saturday Night Live does. They'll slice it, and they'll dice it, and they'll put it on their Instagram and Facebook accounts and their YouTube channel. They'll probably put it on their NBC website and blog. 
    It would be best to treat your content distribution seriously to get the right people to see and reach out to you. 
    ✔️ Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok, you name it. How do you ensure that your content goes in these and everywhere else? Social Selling Expert Phil Gerbyshak reminds the importance of repurposing, repackaging and reformulating content that fits best on these platforms. 
    ✔️ Create a balance of evergreen content and some that are avocado that means fresh. Consumers prefer reading or consuming stuff that is current but also consider that even old posts will find their way into your audience as long as they stay relevant.
    ✔️ Setting aside some money is becoming a necessity to share content in front of not just eyeballs — but the right eyeballs. 
    Who's your target? Who are the best people who need your products and services? Because frankly, you wouldn't want virality, but real conversations and cash flow. 
    ✔️ We've seen red flags of what happens when social media goes down. While Facebook still has the most users on the internet, getting billions of eyeballs every single day — be reminded that it's always an excellent plan to diversify your ad spend and social sharing. 
     
    ✔️ Fantastic tools for repurposing content. Phil has recommended Agorapulse as his social media management tool for six years. Otter.ai to do transcripts (the transcription engine behind Zoom, as well.) Kapwing video reformatting and editing,  Grammarly online writing assistant and Text Expander to speed up typing.
     Phil Gerbyshak is a speaker, sales expert, corporate sales trainer and small business coach. Phil trains his clients on the power of connection, leveraging the reach of social media, combined with the deeply personal work of nurturing 1:1 relationships, growing profitable long-term clients, transforming businesses and boosting revenue.

    What You Should And Should Not Be Doing In The First 10 Days Of Business

    What You Should And Should Not Be Doing In The First 10 Days Of Business

    I've made horrific mistakes in my first years in business, and they're just as interesting. As I look back, I can't help but ask: how could I have been so stupid? 
    In this episode, I will run through the major things I learned and should have done differently in the first ten days in business. Sales and tech expert Phil Gerbyshak joins me to share the tactical things to work on in addition to marketing strategies.
    🎬 Watch the full episode of Stop Doing Nothing — What You Should And Should Not Be Doing In The First 10 Days Of Business with Phil Gerbyshak.
    What You Will Discover: 
    ✔️ Money matters first. If you haven't quit your job yet, get a credit card. Get as high of a limit as you can, but you must control it and use it solely for your business. The separation of business and personal spending is so crucial. Phil encourages you to do that first and then open a bank account and set up an LLC in your state. In many cases, you can't have a bank account unless you have an LLC. So those are the first two things to prioritize.
    ✔️ Set up a professional-looking invoice. Phil emphasizes that it'll be worth its weight in gold & you'll look way more "referable". Get an invoicing tool that will allow you to take money online, accommodate how people want to pay. This also establishes you being legit biz.
    ✔️ Build up an email list. I cannot emphasize enough how important an email list is. It doesn't matter if someone you know has got a list of 30,000 and you only have one. Just start as your business builds up people interested in what you have to say. When someone gives you their email address, it lets you know they want to be a little closer to you than they are on social media. 
    ✔️ No fancy branding or website. All it takes is one page to convince people whether to buy from you or not. So when you are just starting your business, you don't need to problematize if you don't have a website.
    ✔️ Find those things you're good at in your business and learn to get rid of the other stuff where you aren't. For example, if you get rid of the accounting work, you've got more time to write a blog post, make a video or fly to a meeting. If you can get rid of your social media posting tasks, you've got more time to do prospecting, phone calls or conferences, which are sales-generating things that would boost your business. Leverage your strengths and identify what you can outsource.

Phil trains his clients on the power of connection, leveraging the reach of social media, combined with the deeply personal work of nurturing 1:1 relationships, growing profitable long-term clients, transforming businesses and boosting revenue.

    SDN117: How To Disaster-Proof Your Business With Phil Gerbyshak

    SDN117: How To Disaster-Proof Your Business With Phil Gerbyshak

    ✋🔴 Let me ask you: are you SURE your business can outlast any outage or any kind of disaster?
    If you feel that you are not, allow us to teach you how to handle some of your marketing or your I.T. resources go down and prevent losing what you've built online should the unexpected happen. @philgerbjoins me in this episode as one of the best people to talk about business management and disaster recovery. 
    🎬 Watch the full episode of Stop Doing Nothing — How to Disaster-Proof Your Business with Phil Gerbyshak. It's one you don't want to miss! 
    What You Will Discover: 
    ✔️  The riskiest thing you can do is entrust all your eggs in one social media basket.  It's always good to have multiple social channels with at least three to become "omnipresent".
    ✔️  Get everything in the Cloud. In the olden days (before the Cloud), I remember how tedious it was preparing should disasters strike. As the head of disaster recovery for the big data center of a big black and yellow car rental company, we physically had to back up our mainframe stuff to tapes weekly. We shipped it off to a vault in Texas because we assume Oklahoma City gets hit by a tornado and wipes out the data center. We wouldn't sleep for 24 hours to ensure a full recovery and get the business back up and running. The wealth of experience and learnings is what I now carry over into my businesses. You can never be wrong if you always prepare and have a backup.
    ✔️ Self-professed tech geek and sales expert Phil Gerbyshak shares, "You want to own as much of your content as you can. It's one of the reasons why email marketing is never going to die." 
    ✔️ If your domain, email and website are all at the same company – and when that company is down, you have access to nothing. Avoid these points of failure and use our ideal setup to ensure you would still have access to everything. Ideally, it's best to have your domain someplace separate from where your web host is.

    Highly Productive Habits That Will Make You More Money

    Highly Productive Habits That Will Make You More Money

    Are you tired of being just an observer of life? This video is for you if you want to change and transition your mind and body, live more fully, get in better shape and sustain good habits in the long term. 

    What You Will Discover: 

    ✔️ Why you may be spending time on OPP. You get ten emails upon waking up in the morning, is your reflex to answer and resolve those issues? Then you are living your life based on other people's priorities. It would be best first to do what is essential to you, like meditating, taking your vitamins, stretching, hydrating, and everything else necessary to start your day or the week powerfully. 

    ✔️ As you start building habits, treat yourself like a seven-day machine, not a five-day machine. If you choose to get up early, eat a certain way, or start any new thing to make your life better, do it for the rest of the week. These are lifestyle habits, not something that you're going to do and then take a break.

    ✔️  Don't rest on your purpose. Remember, you are on this planet for bigger things, and so you are going to have to stretch yourself (even on Saturdays and Sundays!) because while everyone else is sleeping, you're going to be awake working on the important stuff.

    ✔️  If your body is not in a peak state — nothing else matters. You can't work on your work, business, or finances if you're chowing down a half-gallon of ice cream every night with sugar dragging down your energy levels. So put your health on top priority.

    Feeling Stuck In Life? Why Every Leader Has Been In Your Shoes

    Feeling Stuck In Life? Why Every Leader Has Been In Your Shoes

    Are you stuck 😔 bored 😑 and have nothing to do? These are some of the worst things in life that can possibly hit you and turn into a perpetual downhill spiral that will suck you up. 

    In this episode, glean ideas and tips to recognize when you're in this situation and how to get out of a rut, master your mind and become the person you want to be.

    What You Will Discover: 

    ✔️ Why boredom can be a result of a lack of purpose or aim in life. Almost often, purpose is not taught in school. This is something you discover on your own as you live a couple of decades on this planet. 

    ✔️  Pick one problem and dedicate your life and your time to solving it. Then, obsess on finding solutions that will make somebody's life better. Doing so will keep you motivated and push you forward to work on a mission bigger than you are.

    ✔️ Get out of your regular environment to spur some creativity. So if every single day you are staying in the same place, decide to go somewhere. You don't need a big budget to fly across the country, but you can drive twenty minutes across your city and find a coffee shop there. Just change your environment up, and your mental environment also changes.

    ✔️ Start planning on your giant, hairy dreams. Life can only progress or regress. A leader with ambitions will never allow life to run on autopilot. So don't sit in the boat of life and let the ocean push you around.

    ✔️ Decide what you want your legacy to look like. Then, think of the years down the line after you die; what do you want people to remember you for? What do you want people to say at the podium when you pass away? Ponder on this, and you will be directed in your every step and action.

    ✔️ Aspire to teach. What we learn and improve upon, we have an obligation to pass that on to future generations. So dig deeper, and you'll realize pretty fast that you have a lot of knowledge in your brain. Teach the younger generation to use your voice for good. 

    ✔️ Better your best. Getting outside of your comfort zone physically, mentally, psychologically, and emotionally pushes you to adapt and get better. You wouldn't have time to be bored and stuck. Instead, aspire for bigger and better things in life.
