  • Good morning!I am excited to be here with Scott, the team from CCN and most of all you entrepreneurs.As we talk to business owners around the country we know just how tough it is right now. The key to success…don’t participate and focus on the doom and gloom. Focus on how your can build your business and beat your competition. That is what is so terrific about CCN and will be taken to them next level with Scott’s leadership.You are all winners…b/c you are here and not sitting in your offices at home complaining about why things are so bad…you are doing something about it. I love hanging around winner and am delighted to be here with you all. Agenda…overview or changes, specifics of social web, steps you should take right now
  • We know it is tough…the good news, we are in an unprecedented period of opportunity if you understand the new environment and how to win. Bridging new technology with marketing will completely change the business landscape.Now, I know some of you at least think about this subject and feel a little like you are going to the dentist.I understand…I felt that way in the early 1990’s when I was running a large media division for an international media company. Tell the story…Now I am considered an Internet marketing expert and leader having worked for most the the Fortune 500 companies and been CEO of two VC backed cutting edge web 2.0 technology companies.
  • We are going to share information and insights with you today that not many people fully understand.I am going to try and cover lots of ground so buckle in…and you will get a copy of this presentation so don’t worry about taking notes.
  • We are in a “new normal” and the old way of doing business is not going to come back.Same challenge of acquiring and keeping customers but you need to find better, more effective and efficient ways to do it.
  • Many organizations are finding it hard to adapt…and they will get overtaken.
  • It’s about customer relationships and building a platform for marketing or “renting” eyeballs.Huge economic advantages will go to the companies that know how to build the platform.
  • It’s about customer relationships and building a platform for marketing or “renting” eyeballs.Huge economic advantages will go to the companies that know how to build the platform.
  • It all started with search…completely changed the behavior of EVERYONE.It now translated to asking friends on social networks30% of searches are for local businesses…over 2.6 Billion per month. Bigger that Yellow Pages and newspapers as the primary source.Mobile will make this even bigger…27% of mobile searches are local.
  • Need I say more…
  • Video plays a key role in this new marketing paradigm
  • People now share information instantaneously through their social graph.Imaging a homeowner getting a new kitchen or extension and being able to take pictures as it goes up on their cell phone and and post it to Facebook right there…
  • Consumers have control….but so can you!
  • Three key questions to ask yourself. We hope to help you answer these in this presentation.
  • Ever hear of Burrel soap? They were the largest soap company before radio and tv….guess who learned how to use radio and tv for marketing?Same thing happened for small businesses…Dan Kennedy build a great business teaching small businesses how to write copy for direct mail and newspapers.
  • We all know what the elephant in the room is…a continuous pipeline of new leads.
  • You future success will depend on your ability to adapt your marketing strategies to this new environment…if fact, take advantage of this dislocation!!!
  • Relationships will matter in the new normal
  • It’s not just the economy…it’s is a fundamental shift in how people consume media and marketing.
  • The economic implications of this shift for your business in huge.
  • The social web has lot’s of moving parts.
  • I like to call it the “distributed web” because it is about communities large and small
  • This is already a huge audience and growing. Facebook alone is already over 300 million users
  • It’s important to understand that technology is enabling consumer behavior…technology is not driving this. That is why we know it is not a fade but a huge shift.
  • When I was at AOL in the mid 1990’s we already recognized this behavior.
  • With technology today it has evolved into what they call a social graph…people interconnected seeking, searching, sharing information and experiences real time.
  • Blogging is the home base with your site.Social profiles and pages, You Tube videos and other video distribution, niche sites like eHow, article directories, social bookmarking are your distributed messages
  • Your marketing footprint can be HUGE
  • This marketing strategy is very inexpensive to build with cloud computing and web services.
  • You can compete with anyone in your market…regardless of size because it is not about money.
  • How do you compete for attention? Your special knowledge…give it away.
  • An art gallery give away a free digital book with artists collections…one or two are done specially so they can be printed as photos on a home computer for consumers.
  • A contractor getting into home energy auditing and performance contracting does free reports on how to do an energy audit and what are the easy do it your self projects you can do for quick ROI.
  • This real estate agent wanted to be the expert about the community and have a big presence to compete with the bigger agents that outspent her in ads.
  • But Scott beat me up on the way here. He said I want to take care of these people. They are our leaders for CCN. So, for this conference only we will make you a mafia offer.All that, plus we are adding one additional month free access to Total Access (which will launch next Friday) forming a social marketing mastermind group for only CCN Platinum members like you do do once a month calls where we will talk about either technology or case studies, but the focus is on answering your questions. This is well over $1,000 in value..The total cost $199.95 only if you sign up today this weekend. It is live now and you can order online or with one of the CCN people…they will take your name, address and credit card info.
