Jason T. Wiser21,539*Psychology of Selling and Firewalking* Here is the Mobile Link http://jtw.bz/DaveU2be  Here is the Event page http://jtw.bz/daveHOA  You’re probably asking yourself, what does firewalking and sales have to do with each other? You’re going to have to tune in to find out.  Catch past interviews at http://ontracktips.com But first let’s break this down.  So, you've got your branding, marketing, and lead capture, now comes that final stage, closing the deal.  You've been very strategic up to this point with your digital strategy and you've gotten your potential customers right at the very end of the sales funnel. Now, you just need to give them that last something to get them to commit to your product and convert. How many times have you failed to convert that qualified lead, that person that you were absolutely certain was going to be your next star client, but in that last moment, they backed out. No sale. No deal. Well what happened?  This week I've invited +Dave Moore from the Moore consortium to help us understand what went wrong. Dave has a PhD in Philosophy with a Major in Psychology, he is a Behavioral Psychologist and fire walk trainer, he’s a salesman's salesman and highly coveted key note speaker at sales conventions around the globe.   And this week he is going to help us understand some of the biggest challenges in sales, and how to overcome them without being the annoying door to door salesman, the used car salesman, or the telemarketer. We’re going to dig deep into the Psychology of Sales.  Dave is going to help us understand: ⇒ How to ask the right questions that get your customers to convert ⇒ How to tell your customers what they want to hear in a way that they want to hear it ⇒ How important are Body Language, Tonality, and words when giving that presentation at the closing of a sale. We will be answering your questions on this event, start asking now!  Catch past interviews at http://ontracktips.com Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTube http://bit.ly/u2beWS    Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #OnTrackTips   Visit our Facebook App http://jtw.bz/FBonTrack If you like this series, please Share this with 2 friends #businesstips   #socialmediatips   #socialmediamarketing   #HOA #interview   #business   #psychology   #salestips  Psychology of Selling and Firewalking2013-11-25 19:00:0096  
Jason T. Wiser21,539*How to develop a brand strategy* For mobile Viewers http://jtw.bz/DSu2be  For the event http://jtw.bz/dustnGp  Many small businesses haven't really stopped to consider the distinction between their business strategy and their branding strategy. It’s true these overlap in many ways, but make no mistake, they are two distinctly separate processes. And you need to consider both. So, do you have a clear understanding of what your branding is? Many people hear branding and they think, “Isn't it just your logo, your website, and your product packaging?” The answer’s no. In fact, there’s a whole lot more to it. So much in fact that we’ll be looking at branding strategy in three separate sessions.  1) Creating your Design 2) Finding your Voice 3) Conveying a Consistent Message This week is part one of our Branding series our special guest is +Dustin W. Stout who is one of the most creative and engaging personalities not just here on Google Plus, but all over the web. If you look at his site, http://Dustn.tv you will see a perfect example of “branding Strategy” in action..  This week Dustin will help us understand: ⇒ 5 things you need to consider when you’re designing or re-designing your brand ⇒ How to convey your branded message to a community of new followers and loyalists using Social Media ⇒ Key strategies that he uses to keep his brand fresh, exciting, and keep it from going stale We will be answering your questions on this event, start asking now!  Catch past interviews at http://ontracktips.com Subscribe to "Get on Track, Stay on Track" on YouTubehttp://bit.ly/u2beWS    Join us on Twitter using the hashtag #OnTrackTips   Visit our Facebook App http://jtw.bz/FBonTrack *If you like this series, please Share this with 2 friends* #businesstips   #socialmediatips   #socialmediamarketing   #HOA   #interview   #business  How to Develop a Brand Strategy2013-11-23 19:00:00147

Michael Ehline23,043This is a real treat.  The original +Circle Master treats us all to a dose of fun, and business all wrapped up into one great seminar. +Christine DeGraff  has been a friend of the +Circle of Legal Trust for ages, and now we want to get into why it is so important for lawyers to engage with potential clients, and not just be in a webring of fellow attorneys. Google wants to see engagement, and she is the messenger.

Jason T. Wiser21,539*How do I monetize my social media activity?*  See full notes and podcast here! http://jtw.bz/CDsocial I hear this question every day. "I have a social media following but I'm not really sure how to convert my contacts into clients? What am I doing wrong?" Too often small business owners either get frustrated because everyone tells them they _have to_ be on social media. So they get started, get some followers, and get stuck either *finding potential clients* , stuck *spending too much time* on social media, or stuck trying to *get their connections to convert.* This week I'm talking with one of social media's biggest names +Christine DeGraff  who is literally *everywhere*. She has massive followings, huge communities, and great reach. Christine will share with us: How did she get started? How does she monetize her communities?  Where does she need to improve?

Just when Google+ was about to die (again)... Collections! // From the 5' I looked into this, this is basically an attack on Pinterest and Flipboard :) You can organise your posts into "Collections" and people can follow or unfollow them individually (pretty much like Pinterest and Flipboard). So basically, you can now follow a person's cooking posts but not his science posts, IF he actually takes the time to organise his posting that way. 

Are you going to do it? Have you already done this? Are you ready to move away from Pinterest? ;) And do we have a CollectionCount already +CircleCount? :)

Strava on the "forget you were on a free trial, so that we can charge you" scam(/business model) So after the third time that #Strava offered me a free trial, I tested it out, idiotically giving them my credit card number. After a couple of days of use, I forgot about the whole thing. 28 Days later, without any warning, +Strava charges my credit card. Trying to cancel on the same day proves to be insufficient (for a service not used, you would think you would instantly get your money back, right?). Sending a support ticket also proves to be worthless, since no one responded after two days. The best part is that Premium users are promised priority support with a response in 24 hours...

Edit: They have now (a few hours after this post) responded saying that the charge is reversed. Waiting for the bank to process the refund... I wonder why credit charges are instant but refunds... more »

Lesson of the day: never, ever, sign up for free trial with a credit card. The next time such a thing comes up I will take the time to contact the company and let them know that I wont do the trial because they are asking for a credit card. ___

A new (old) business model for websites: Google Contributor // Ads served via Google's Adsense platform is practically on almost every ad-supported website out there. Sites have for a lot of years tried to create membership programs targeted to their frequent visitors on a "support us financially and you won't get any ads on our pages". These kinds of programs require resources to build and maintain, and the result is often uncertain. Google Contributor brings a solution by allowing users to pay a monthly amount in order to remove ads served by Google in participating sites.

Of course the end result isn't optimal since you end up with empty white spaces (or pictures of kittens- an actual option).

Would you use it?

///

TL;dr Google Contributor (https://www.google.com/contributor/welcome/) is awesome.
If you're using an AdBlocker and don't feel a tiny bit bad about it you can stop reading now.

If you, like me, don't like intrusive ads Google Contributor is amazing. It lets you bit against other advertisers (well, it does it automatically, but that is apparently how it works) and because internet advertising is cheap you don't need to pay a lot of money to see less ads. My monthly budget is $5 but I don't typically actually use all of it. It may be different depending on the sites you chose to visit.

Instead of ads you can chose what to see. Besides providing your own custom ad image URL it supports replacing all banners with cat pictures out of the box (of course). That turned out to be too distracting and so I went back to the default (a light grey thank you message).

Apple Pay protecting our shopping privacy? Sign me up please

>> For 28 of the retailers surveyed by Reuters, lack of access to data about customers and their buying habits is a key reason they don't accept Apple Pay. "One of the biggest concerns is data control," said Mario De Armas, senior director, international payments at the world's largest retailer, Wal-Mart Stores Inc.

When a credit card is swiped through a terminal, the retailer gets the name and card number, which when combined with publicly available demographic data like address, phone and email, helps retail chains send well-targeted promotions to customers. <<

As Facebook is adding official support for GIFs, I just found out that people are finally accepting that most modern GIFs are nothing else than looping videos, and treating them as such. And thus, Imgur has been converting GIFs to MP4 and WebM (and serving these instead) since last October. 

The related announcement: http://imgur.com/blog/2014/10/09/introducing-gifv/

Ironically, I uploaded the MP4 version of one of the "GIF"s of the announcement, and Google+ recreated the most annoying part of GIF's for me: no control over autoplaying/looping :)

From "Do what you love, love what you do: An omnipresent mantra that’s bad for work and workers" on Slate: 

"No one is arguing that enjoyable work should be less so. But emotionally satisfying work is still work, and acknowledging it as such doesn’t undermine it in any way. Refusing to acknowledge it, on the other hand, opens the door to exploitation and harms all workers.

Ironically, DWYL reinforces exploitation even within the so-called lovable professions, where off-the-clock, underpaid, or unpaid labor is the new norm: reporters required to do the work of their laid-off photographers, publicists expected to pin and tweet on weekends, the 46 percent of the workforce expected to check their work email on sick days. Nothing makes exploitation go down easier than convincing workers that they are doing what they love."

Istanbul is for food lovers // After an extensive 5-day research, here's my short list of places to eat in Istanbul. It turns out, I didn't eat that much, I couldn't make it to many items of my list. 
Places with tips and photos are the ones I've visited, others are suggestions from friends that I couldn't make it. The top 3 are highly recommended, must-see, don't-miss-it ones :) 

See the list http://4sq.com/1FHAiEZ

Join me in Spartathlon 2015! // RunWithMe​ is a great site where you can participate in virtual runs (that you actually run IRL) anywhere in the world. We currently need 8 more people to start our Spartathalon race (you can even walk it if you like). 

Participation is so simple. Once you're signed up and the race starts, you'll get a daily email asking if you ran that day. You simply reply with whatever mileage you really ran or walked that day, and the app advances you along the race route and reports your progress relative to the other runners.

Summer reading'15: #BillGates  endorses #XKCD  creator book: What If? // On his own blog, Bill Gates is sharing his book suggestions, and among them is Randall Munroe's "What If?" book, a series of answers to "absurd" (with or without quotes) scientific questions. 

Bill Gates writes: _"The reason Munroe’s approach is a great way to learn about science is that he takes ideas that everybody understands in a general way and then explores what happens when you take those ideas to their limits. For example, we all know pretty much what gravity is. But what if Earth’s gravity were twice as strong as it is?What if it were three times as strong, or a hundred? Looking at the question in that way makes you start to think about gravity a little differently."_

Google releases something incomplete? Unheard of! :) Thank God for +CircleCount ...

Find Google+ Collections on CircleCount
http://www.circlecount.com/collections/

A week after Google+ launched the Collections and after we have tracked a few collections, we are happy to introduce a search for Collection on CircleCount.
Search for any word/keyword/phrase or whatever you want to find the Collections that could be interesting for you.
In the results you will see the owner of the Collection and also the number of followers the Collection has and (most interesting): the cover of the Collection
As you can see in the attached screenshot "food" has been visualized in different ways by +Mike Elgan, +Luria Petrucci, +Jackie M, +Larry Fournillier, +Jaana Nyström, +Janice Mansfield  and many more.

This is not the first time where we are surprised that Google+ isn't offering a search for a new feature, but
We are here to help ;)

So far we have found 39,705 Collections from 15,108 profiles and pages. And we are finding daily new Collections.
What is your favorite Collection?

PEC: From circles to collections // The +Photo Exchange Club  is one of the best series of weekly circles, showcasing some excellent photographers. It was on long "vacation" and just when it was about to be resurrected, Google killed shared circles. So instead it now continues as a collection. As I was writing earlier (http://bit.ly/1QDalex), this is now a curation of content (mainly) instead of people. I kind of like the result. In a single stream I can see the most recent work of all the photographers of the "circle". Looking forward to seeing how this evolves :)

Shared circles murdered, Collections born: Upping the game for G+ curators // Crazy thought: maybe Google didn't like (in the end) the ease of massively sharing hundreds of people's profiles to thousands other people. Maybe that served the purposed of many people being happy to have thousands of followers (and thus be happy to be on Google+). Maybe they found out that it doesn't improve overall post quality in the long run. 

Maybe they realised we should curate content instead of people. And thus, shared circles are killed, and collections are born. 

And now we get to handpick other people's good content, and try to promote a collection of it. And now we're on Level 2 of the Google+ Maze. We'd better get used to it. :)

About 500 clicks later... I have a first #Collection  with a good part of my #photography  posts of the last 3 years. 

#How  to do it? 
1) Create the collection
2) From the top search box: do a search for "photography" 
3) Refine the search to show posts "from you" 
4) Click, click, click to add each post into the collection... 

Seriously +Google+, you guys can do better.

Just when Google+ was about to die (again)... Collections! // From the 5' I looked into this, this is basically an attack on Pinterest and Flipboard :) You can organise your posts into "Collections" and people can follow or unfollow them individually (pretty much like Pinterest and Flipboard). So basically, you can now follow a person's cooking posts but not his science posts, IF he actually takes the time to organise his posting that way. 

Are you going to do it? Have you already done this? Are you ready to move away from Pinterest? ;) And do we have a CollectionCount already +CircleCount? :)

See examples of #collections   here https://plus.google.com/collections/featured
