Planning for 2016 Success Using Your Google Calendar

Hello again –

This is an update on the very successful 2015 version with a few added insights into living a calendar-based life.

  • How to use goal-gating to be more productive in 2016
  • How to use your own Google Calendar to organize all your projects for the year
  • How to dissolve those internal blocks to living a calendar-based life.
  • Learn time management techniques you can put into play right away.


And as an extra bonus –

Here’s a fun interview with two of my favorite people from Australia; Loren Bartley and Fiona Redding where we deep dive into this whole idea of living a calendar-based life. I think you’ll enjoy it when Loren has a great AHA moment. 


2016 Predictions with Phyllis Khare and Andrea Vahl | #blab Audio Version

I went back and checked.


I’ve been offering up predictions for the upcoming year since Dec. 2011. In Internet years that’s 50 years (5 x 10 speed of light – 50) Yes, I was an A+ student, except for Math :-)

Here are my previous predictions, if you want a little trip down memory lane (ELLO anyone?).

2012  2013  2014  2015 and now this one for 2016

Our Predictions for 2016

Andrea Vahl and I sat down for blab, this time around, for our predictions. You can read her post about the blab right here.

We narrowed it down to seven predictions:

#1 Streaming Video Use Will Increase
#2 Facebook Live Will Change the Game
#3 Facebook is Still Where It’s At
#4 Podcasting will Grow
#5 More Companies will Reach Out to Influencers for Marketing
#6 Audiences Get Smaller But Are Engaged
#7 Online Training Isn’t Going Away

Andrea really expanded our discussion on each of these ideas, and I highly recommend you read through her post noted above.

I’d like to dive into this idea: Online Training Isn’t Going Away. 

I’m kinda banking on it.

Andrea and I recently sent out a POLL to everyone on our list and hundreds completed it. And surprise surprise surprise. What the number one way people prefer to get more information about a subject? eBooks. What? Not webinars and blabs and blog posts and podcasts? eBooks. OK. I can do that. One other thing I want to share from that POLL is that people really prefer online training with lifetime access. Well, that’s the reason we designed our Social Media Manager School  the way we did. Lifetime access creates lifetime fans. 

Knowing these two things, and in looking at our predictions, my personal goal for 2016 is to focus on my online training programs. I have so much to share.

Enjoy the audio version of our blab – it’s a little experiment into the podcasting arena. Do you like hearing us discuss these types of topics in audio format? Love to hear your impressions. 

The cool thing about posting a Soundcloud audio, is you can share JUST the audio from within the player above (see that share link?). Or PIN this whole post using the image below. Thanks! See you in 2016!

How to write titles that people will click – 4 of my favorite tools

This morning I watched another fabulous Periscope by my buddy Kim Garst. She is hands-down my favorite person to watch on Periscope (and blab and Facebook and Twitter…..).

And today she was discussing one of my favorite tools for creating titles. Her focus was on creating the best Periscope Title, but the tool she suggested can be used in all sorts of situations where you need to create a title that is attractive to your target audience (blog posts, YouTube titles, eBook titles Facebook posts etc..)

She inspired me to do a scope of my own and show the other tools I use to inspire the creativity in creating titles that will be so attractive to the target audience that they can’t help but click!

Below the Scope are the slides from my recent training session that are linked right to the tool! enjoy!

Follow the Funnel micro-training series


Phyllis Khare Follow the Funnel Model the Process

Seems like I get excited a lot these days. I start my posts off with something like: “I’m so excited about this!” It’s just my nature to be excited, and in this case, I’m excited x5.

Introducing… a series of ONline and OFFline micro-training sessions —


Follow the Funnel –  – Model the Process

I realized awhile ago that THIS is exactly what I do online – I follow someone’s funnel and then model their process. Now I want to share what I’ve learned and teach you how to use these funnels for your (financial) benefit!

ALL of us are in someone’s funnel right now. Think about it:


When you click through to a blog post – you are in someone’s funnel.

When you watch the video – someone’s funnel.

When you give someone your email address for a free thingy – you are obviously now in someone’s funnel.


EVERYTHING you do online – EVEN if it’s passive (“I promise – I didn’t click anything!”) puts you into someone’s funnel.

And before you know it, you are at the shiny gate of their payment gateway.

You are hovering above their click to buy button.

You are deciding if you want the Premium or Platinum version.


Knowingly or unknowingly, YOU have followed a funnel.


Now it’s time to wake up and Model the Process for your OWN benefit.

Hence – my new series of micro-training sessions. I’m so excited! :-)


What are micro-training sessions? Showing you the WHOLE Funnel process (and all their variations) can sometimes be very overwhelming and stressful for the people in my tribe, so let’s start with the individual gears of the funnel and then later on down the road, we can put them all together to make a mighty funnel of marketing awesomeness.


Cool bits about this series:

  • you can take these in person or online
  • each one is hyper-focused on ONE part of a funnel marketing process
  • you get insider knowledge on how savvy marketers are using these funnels without paying their hefty training costs

Is Periscope the right tool for your business?

4 Reasons to Check Out Periscope

It’s been a loooooong time since I was excited about a new social site. In fact, I’ve been getting more and more discouraged and bummed out about a lot of the social platforms and took a looooong vacation to try and find my mojo again. I’m not quite all there, yet, but I think Periscope might help me over the mojo line. Here are 4 reasons why I think Periscope is good for business.


1. It’s the ultimate in social interaction.

If you are unsure what Periscope is – here’s the short intro. It’s a live-streaming app that lives on your phone. You open it up – start a live broadcast and people are notified on Twitter to come and have a chat with you. You talk – people text chat with you. Listeners can “heart” what you’re saying by tapping the screen (each person has a different colored heart) and type a text comment or question that shows up on the screen for you to answer and acknowledge.

Live video + live chat + authentic self = Periscope. Or “scoping” as it’s called. :-)
