In a world where we are constantly trying to catch the attention of viewers and customers, videos are one of the easiest and quickest ways to get people interested in your blog, product or whatever it is you want them to see. I Bet you have always wondered how exactly you can create videos without…
In times past website owners and bloggers have undergone several days of set up and preparation in order to come up with quality videos that add to their page content and present their loyal audience with short videos that talk about all there is to know about their latest post.

Ever wake up one day with a massive backache…
… on that cries out for:
* 7928 canes (7,927 backup ones, see)
* Unreadable gel that feels like warm cozy liquid lava
* 32 cups of coffee with chili peppers
Well if so, being gentle to yourself is a wondrous idea!
And if not…
What about instead….
Pouncing full force on the greatness of business integrations?
What’s business integrations, I hear you ask?
So glad that question has arisen!
has a great article about it, including:
“Integrations connect your software to third-party applications so they can share information with each other. They share data from one system to the next which provides you with more features and options while using your software.”
Lots of nifty examples are provided, but I myself personally love the integrations available at:
These allow you to construct:
IF This Then That (ifttt!)
For example, you could create a recipe that states:
If you update your blog, send that blog over to your tumblr automatically!
If your plant soil is too dry, send you a reminder to water your plants.
You could even create a cool 1 page cheatsheet like so:
Step 1.) Determine where the majority of your content originates (blog posts? FB posts? Linkedin posts? Slack posts?)
Step 2.) Decide where to send that content
Step 3.) Construct the IFTTT or Zap to make it happen!
Resources to assist you include:
You don’t have to do everything by yourself…
Why not take advantage of these free tools already available to help you save time and build profit?
As internet marketers who aim to invite, engage and gather customers, voice messaging is a relevant medium of business communication. In fact, voicemails enhance customer service. So, what if people can leave voicemail messages on your website rather than asking them to fill out long, annoying and discouraging forms for their concerns and queries? What…
Ever wish that along with paling around with a DIY Genie, you could ALSO weave in the gloriousness known as coffee to your readers too… to keep them on your site?
There most definitely IS a tremendous way to do that!
One is slightly difficult (brand yourself with coffee!) but the other one…
Well, the first criteria is you actually DEAL with coffee.
Like places like Blue Bottle!
Jilt did a great thing with that over at:
And they walk you thru everything you imagine possible wrt the customer *experience* of both landing on their site…
.. and then bestowing money upon them for buying at that site!
‘Tis a useful article indeed… I highly recommend you checking it out and then returning here.
Want other ways to caffeinate your audience?
but even if coffee doesn’t quite flap your earlobes, you remove the word Coffee in those posts, substitute in your niche, and yep, the ideas still make sense with thingees like:
* Hone Your eMail List
* Ramp up your Instagram Strategy
* Leverage Interactive content
Heck you could even create a one page cheatsheet about this like so:
Step 1.) Zero in on your product
Step 2.) Branch out one step to see how said branches can funnel people to your product
Step 3.) Turn it on!
There are bunches of ways you can energize your business and you dont even *need* to have coffee it it….
Take advantage of that.
You have lots of views on your YouTube account and lots of comments on your Instagram account right? If this is you, why not turn them into cash? You can change those comments into referrals, traffic leads, direct sales with the push of just a button. There are lots of people commenting on your brand…
Have you tried setting up a new WordPress site? I know what you are thinking cause it is, in fact, the most tedious work to do. It takes so much of your time that you can’t attend to your other tasks anymore. Think about it. You probably have 10-15 sites on hand. Imagine spending an…
It never fails, you know.
You wake up one morning, bound set and determined to create the most glorious of soul-searingly beautiful posts on your blog (or perhaps in your product)…
… fling yourself out of bed, stride confidently to your computer, pull up your New Post blank slate and…..
… and ….
… and (cue the cricket chirps that sound oddly like a bazillion mini-Godzillas who are lacking their daily dietary fill of smooshed cities)…
and, well, your mind suddenly is terrifyingly….
Blanker than blank!
Why, if there was a 4-H competition for the blankest of slates written in the stars of destiny, alas, you would NOT win (stars? I mean really, stars?) BUT…
The fact still remains.
Your mind is blank.
What can you write about?
Oh, sure, you could write about how many suburbs Godzilla should consume to maintain a healthy diet, but chances are, your blog (or product) is NOT about the Care and Feeding of Random Kaiju NOT named Kevin!
Instead, you discover that you are faced with the dreaded (insert ominous music tone here) Writers Block.
Luckily for you, you live in the Age of the Internet, which you can tarzan-swing your way to Google and find goodies like:
This rather interesting post contains gems like:
Do a mind map. Get off the computer and make a visual drawing of your topic’s ideas and how they relate to each other. Soon, you’ll not just have ideas for your current post, but ideas on how that one might lead to related, future posts.
Turn off the Internet. Do you find yourself playing Bejeweled or checking Twitter when it’s writing time? Write on a pad of paper instead, or use programs such as Anti-Social or Freedom to disable social media or Internet access until you’re done writing. (yes yes yes!)
Try a writing prompt. If you can’t get the juices flowing, do a writing exercise — writing prompts are available on sites such as Creative Copy Challenge.
and other ideas as well.
Fact is, writer’s block can hit just about anyone and cause you to run scampering back to hiding under your comforter, hoping that tomorrow would dawn along with 928 fresh exciting ideas.
Fact is part 2 – that never happens, alas. Oh sure the hiding part is very enjoyable (especially if you either a.) can hide with someone or b.) bring your laptop under your comforter except that gets real old real fast.
But I digress.
Make no mistake about it – you CAN break writers block! Heck, you could even create a 1 page cheatsheet about the topic too like so:
Step 1.) Pull yourself away from the computer
Step 2.) Read your fav stories and allow your subconscious mind to work uninterrupted and see what might materialize
Step 3.) Check out other resources for Hulkizing your Writers Block
Resources for the above include:
interestingliterature.com/2017/07/05/the-best-david-gemmell-novels-everyone-should-read/ (And the order is wrong. By FAR the best novel is Legend – The main character – Druss the Legend.
Druss is a living legend – the best Drenai warrior ever, but he is 60 years old. He suffers from a bad knee and a bad shoulder, but he tries to overcome his age to inspire young soldiers facing a terrible enemy.
After that, go straight to Midnight Falcon. And then read everything else in between.
Oh my look at that. I digressed again. Where was I? Ah yes!
Writer’s block happens but it does NOT have to stop you!
Instead, step back, take a breather, watch Godzilla King of the Monsters and realize that Gidorah’s 3rd head is Kevin :
This too, shall pass.
