    The NEW Formula For Business Success By Guest Blogger Maria Simone

    Wednesday, May 27th, 2009

    Despite the economy, many people are pursuing their dreams and succeeding by playing with a new set of rules
    on-the-air-and-on-the-web

    In what looks like a scene from an old science fiction movie, many people appear to have stopped dead in their tracks when it comes to moving their business forward, paralyzed by fear and unable to take action. There are still others who have lost jobs in industries undergoing dramatic shifts yet they continue to pursue similar opportunities within the same industries, only to find out repeatedly that those once familiar opportunities just aren’t there anymore.

    Yet on the flip side, there are an equal number of people who appear to be thriving in this new economy, seemingly unaffected by the doom and gloom being reported. Why is this so?

    The rules are changing for entrepreneurs and small business owners and those who are embracing the new models and taking action are thriving. Here are some of the basic strategies:

    • Pursue your passion. It’s not just about making money anymore, it’s about doing something you love. Customers want authenticity and know that you have their best interest at heart at all times. This happens naturally when you’re being true to yourself. Additionally, coming from this place of high service leads to prosperity in business.

    •Build a support team. The “Lone Ranger” syndrome is not sexy anymore and could be a formula for disaster. Learn to ask for and RECEIVE support from those that have taken a similar journey. Allow Mentors to show you the ropes, open doors for you, inspire you and help you be accountable to yourself.

    •Create Multiple Revenue Streams. This is a time to stop trading time for dollars and start packaging your skills and talents to create products and services with varying price points. Maintain your premium price points and begin adding lower price point items or begin bundling services to provide additional value. Even Starbucks recently announced new price points and product combinations yet still maintains a high level of service and brand integrity.

    •Build a subscriber base. People are more likely to buy from those they have an existing relationship with. That’s difficult to do unless you have the opportunity to regularly communicate with a potential customer. It’s important that businesses take the time to collect basic contact information from everyone who crosses their path and use the latest technology tools that allow for regular follow up via phone, email or snail mail.

    •Collaborate with others for promotional purposes. The “dog-eat-dog” model of doing business has fallen by the wayside. Those who are succeeding are creating win-win opportunities for cross promotion and bundling of products and services. It’s crucial that we support each other by formulating ways to build value for our customers, endorse our colleagues, and tap into each other’s markets.

    •Incorporate Web 2.0 and Social Media strategies. If you haven’t tapped into this new paradigm or plan to, you’re absolutely missing the boat.  The power of this medium was evidenced during the last presidential campaign as Obama stunned McCain’s camp with his ability to quickly raise large sums of money, mobilize millions of volunteers and regularly get his message across to the masses. Social Networks such as Facebook and Twitter, in addition to some of the other Social Media tools, have made it virtually effortless to connect to potential customers, employers, as well as movers and shakers in your industry.  Large corporations have even tapped into this resource to track market changes and quickly survey customers so they are constantly staying ahead of the game. The barriers have come down and the playing field is more “even” online so what used to be considered an afterthought should now be at the forefront in any marketing plan.

    •Provide solutions to problems. It’s not just about selling more stuff. It’s important to regularly communicate with your market to truly understand what their immediate needs are and to then craft products and services that are true solutions to those needs. The more in alignment your business is with this philosophy, the more in demand you’ll be.

    •Automate your marketing platforms. There are a variety of methods you can employ to reach your market but whatever methods you employ, you want to systematize and automate your processes to allow you to reach the masses with increased frequency. More often than not, customers respond by making a purchase only after multiple encounters.

    •Celebritize yourself. Become an authority figure, the media “go-to” person and the face of your company. People connect with people, especially those who can quickly establish their credibility. There are a plethora of media opportunities for those who have a story to tell or an expertise to share.

    One of the most important things you can do as an entrepreneur is to give yourself permission to do your dream and realize that success is possible for anyone who allows it. Challenges are usually related to your own limiting beliefs that get in your way. Learn to break free of them by planning to succeed!

    Appear on the Oprah Show.

    Monday, May 25th, 2009

    You hear it all the time: Getting on The Oprah Winfrey Show is just like winning the lottery. And it can be. But as you probably know you have fierce competition-a lot of it. Thousands of others like you want to be on the show just as much as you do. The only thing that stands between you and them is knowledge, skills, and abilities.

    The good news is that some of these things can be taught. The bad news is that others cannot. You need to have expertise, good timing, and a certain set of skills, to even be considered by the Oprah producers.

    Maybe you’ve already tried to contact the Oprah producers and have not received a reply. Maybe you believe you’ve got just the right talent or expertise for Oprah, but you haven’t been able to get the Oprah Show’s attention. Maybe you know you’ve got a story that is so incredible the Oprah producers are sure to call you up in a flashŠbut they haven’t.

    Oprah Winfrey

    Oprah Winfrey

    If you’ve answered ‘yes’ to any of  these questions, I’d like to invite you to explore The Ultimate Guide to Getting Booked on Oprah: Super Training kit from my colleague Susan Harrow, respected media trainer & marketing strategist who is also the author of Sell Yourself Without Selling Your Soul, considered by most to be The Bible of all publicity.

    Harrow, along with her team of experts, the best publicists in the business, show you how to get on America’s #1 talk show.

    Collectively, they have worked with high profile people, best-selling authors, top experts, famous speakers, successful entrepreneurs, well-known non-profits, and people who are doing remarkable things inspiring others and changing the world. The kind of people Oprah’s producers want.

    Harrow’s team has not only gotten guests on The Oprah Winfrey Show, but virtually all the national TV talk shows that matter. Their clients have been on Oprah, Larry King Live, CBS’ 60 Minutes, Good Morning America, The Today Show, Rachael Ray, Donny Deutsch, Montel, Ellen, E! Entertainment Channel, ABC’s 20/20, CBS’ 48 Hours, NBC’s Dateline, MSNBC, CNN, even Bill O’Reilly, and Fox & Friends, and more.

    Harrow’s personal clients paid her thousands of dollars for creating pitches and for extensive media training. Now she has encapsulated all that advice, and their experiences, into a definitive guide – one that’s not available anywhere else, on or off the Internet.

    This is invaluable information if your goal is to be on Oprah. And it’s important to take action right away since many people who make it on to the show have a timely topic that’s current in the news…and you never know when that will happen.

    Foundation offers awards to US and Caribbean students

    Andria Hall

    SCOTCH PLAINS, New Jersey (2009) – US and Caribbean nationals interested in pursuing studies in media, broadcasting or public speaking are being offered scholarship awards in the memory of Christian communications professional and former CNN news anchor, Andria Hall.

    The SpeakEasy M.E.D.I.A. Foundation opened the application process for two grants which will be awarded to a high school student from the United States and another from the Caribbean region where Andria Hall featured at many inspiring tourism and media conferences.

    Each grant will total US $2,000 and will be awarded to individuals pursing media-related studies at the college or university of their choice.

    In addition, each winner will receive a fellowship to attend an upcoming edition of the Caribbean Media Exchange on Sustainable Tourism (CMEx) – which Andria helped to produce – or another media event in the US or Caribbean.

    “We are determined to ensure Andria’s legacy lives on through the lives of our future generation,” said Andria’s husband Clayton Sizemore, president of The SpeakEasy M.E.D.I.A. Foundation. He added it is appropriate to include Caribbean youth for whom Andria had designed mentoring plans even while courageously battling breast cancer.

    Applications for the scholarships and study grants can be sent via email or via post by May 1, 2009.

    “The dedication of Andria’s family to continue her work so soon after her deeply lamented departure is in itself a huge tribute to Andria and what she stood for so devoutly,” said CMEx Director Lelei LeLaulu. “We as a sustainable development organization will never be the same since Andria reminded us, in her ineffably graceful and elegant fashion, that spiritual development and professional excellence had to go hand in hand,” recalled LeLaulu.

    Applicants must either be a graduating high school senior in the US or 5th/6th Form graduating secondary school student in the Caribbean with an overall grade point average of at least 2.5 or C+ average. Participation in extracurricular activities, community work/social service, school, church, volunteer or work experience is required.

    The scholarship criteria and application form can be found at the following links:

    Completed applications can be emailed or mailed to:
