  • 1. Immensely Social Resources for Writers, Bloggers, Social Media Enthusiasts, and Lovers of Life, Art, & Fun Writer’s Wednesday: 3 Tips For Blog Content Creation Posted on October 30, 2013 0 Hello there Pumpkin Spice! Had to get my “Autumn All Things Pumpkin” reference in Welcome back to Writer’s Wednesday! I’m so glad you’re here! Today’s post comes from a fabulous question I received recently from our Facebook Syndication Group. “How do you go about thinking up interesting things to blog about?” So, my dear friends, I have a few things that I hope will really help get the creative juices flowing… 3 Tips For Blog Content Creation
  • 2. Theme it Out If you do not already have a purpose and theme, that would be my first recommendation. At Immensely Social I write about a variety of topics, but all in line with providing the mindset, inspiration, and resources for online business success. Having specific categories on the blog each week has helped me tremendously, as well. Mindful Monday, Writer’s Wednesday, and Fanship Friday. I may not know the specific topic for that day, but I know the general category I will be posting about to keep regular content on the blog. Record If you make a habit of recording ideas as soon as they come to you, you will begin to notice more and more ideas coming!
  • 3. Be a Sharer I tend to have a good bit of wordage, because I love to write. But, people love pictures and videos too. As long as you give credit where it’s due, you can share other people’s content. This is great for traffic, as well. Example: the post I did on video marketing. I shared 4 videos along with my own tips and advice. I didn’t need to write that much or spend time making the videos myself. I just shared useful content that was already there, that I thought my readers would find helpful. Video Marketing with WordPress Tips & Tricks Keep The End Goal in Mind! What action do you want people to take, what do you want them to learn, etc. If you need help writing content faster, check out this video with Marie Forleo:

Vision Boards: The Why and How To A new week as arrived, whoo hoo! Today, I want to give you a another resource to help you work towards your goals. If you are struggling with focus, inspiration, or just lacking belief in yourself and your abilities, read on… I have learned that visualization is a powerful tool. Used by athletes, celebrities, and entrepreneurs alike, visualization can literally work to reprogram your brain for success. One of the best ways to remind yourself to visualize, be consistent, and make your dreams a reality is to use vision boards.
  • 5. Whatever we plant in our subconscious mind and nourish with repetition and emotion will one day become a reality. Earl Nightingale There is a variety of ways to go about creating vision boards. I’m about to share with you my favorite 3 Ways to Create Vision Boards and I encourage you to share your way in the comments below! Let’s dive into it… Old School You can “Old School It” by using the traditional method of a physical cork-board, poster, piece of cardboard, etc. The benefit of this method is it’s a hands on experience. If you are a kinesthetic learner (like to work with your hands and involve yourself in activities) this is a great method for you. Get out the glue and scissors, find pictures in magazines or on the Internet, and get pasting. Choose pictures that really draw out something in you. Pictures that resonate with you and make you feel like your dreams rock and are completely possible! Here is a video you may find helpful in making a physical board: Pinterest: Online Vision Board The second method I like to use is Pinterest. I don’t know about you, but I adore Pinterest. We are in an age where people love to share pictures and images. If you don’t know what Pinterest is you can check it out here: Pinterest
  • 6. Pinterest is basically an online pin board, multiple pin boards as a matter of fact, where you can pin pictures, recipes, articles, videos, or whatever you like. You can share your boards with others also and look at their pins. Best of all it’s free and easy to get started. Pinterest is fantastic for making a vision board online. With each account, you also have the option of some private boards that no one else can see. This can be great if you want to create an online vision board, but don’t necessarily want to share it with the world. I have a private board called “Thoughts Become Things” where I pin pictures of things I want in my life, whether happy family and friends, specific vacations, or even money abundance. If you want to share your board, let me know. I would love to see the vision you are creating. You can tag me on Pinterest @lorihil Also, check out my public boards, by visiting my Pinterest profile here… Lori Hil@Immensely Social Mind Movies Now last, but likely the most POWERFUL, way to create a vision board is through a program called Mind Movies. Mind Movies is a program that you use on your computer to make moving vision boards. You can add positive affirmations and inspiring music that captures the brain’s attention at a deep level. This makes getting your emotions involved way easier. Involving emotion is an extremely important thing about visualizing. You must involve the emotions and visualize in a way that makes you feel your dreams are already a reality. It may be challenging at first, but with practice, it’s completely doable. It is your feelings that attract the desired result. Moving Vision Boards Mind Movies is super easy to use and once your video is made, it just takes a few minutes each day to watch your very own, personalized movie. For more on Mind Movies click here, put in your email address, and get instant access. Combine all 3 Methods of Vision Boards for the Ultimate Visualization I personally and purposefully use all three methods. I have a physical board hanging in my office. I check out my Pinterest board almost every day and also watch my Mind Movie. It really only takes a few minutes once you get into. When you imagine something, picturing it in your mind with emotion, the brain does not know the difference from your
  • 7. outside world. Over time if you are consistent and persistent, I truly believe your brain can be reprogrammed for success. Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blue print, and begin to build. -Robert Collier If you haven’t already heard John Assarf’s incredible story about vision boards, you can watch it here… May your dreams come true and expand the world!

  • 8. Fanship Friday: Vine- What is and How are Top Brands Using It? Posted on October 25, 2013 1 Fantastic Fanship Friday Peeps! Vine: What’s That All About? So, in case you didn’t notice, I haven’t posted about Vine yet. As much as I love all things social media, I’m not always the first to jump on the bandwagon with new apps and accounts. I suggest new bloggers and online entrepreneurs pick 2-3 accounts that they can learn and master, rather than trying to balance tons of accounts that end up getting neglected. That being said, I do like to give you the option to pick the social media platforms that best suite you and your business. So for thoroughness sake, I have gathered some info for you on this “video thing” called Vine…. In case, like me, you’re wondering what the big deal is and why Vine users are growing by leaps and bounds, check this out:

  • 11. Posted on October 22, 2013 1 Hello You Gorgeous Writer’s You! If you are wondering what happened to last week’s Writer’s Wednesday post, it’s a long story. You didn’t miss it, it wasn’t there, my apologies. I’m making it up to you today with a wonderful Author Spotlight! Along with posts on writing/blogging tips, I want to start sharing authors, their stories, and their books with you, as well. I have a fantastic one for you right out of the gate with… The Dragon King by Vivian Slade Based on a boy named Ethan, whom Vivian met in a hospital burn unit, The Dragon King is a story of adventure and triumph. Charmingly illustrated by the author’s 15-year-old daughter Johanna, The Dragon King transports us to a world of knights and yes, dragons. This is not your average fairy tale, however…. What I adore about The Dragon King is that, though about a prince burdened with too quickly becoming a king, it is a story that both adults and children can relate to. A coming of age story. A story about facing fears and the unknown. For what makes a just and honorable leader? “Faith, courage, and wisdom.” Something instilled in this book, that we have talked about a great deal here on the blog, is visualizing your victory even before it occurs with the faith that it is so! What a Powerful lesson! Overcoming the voices in our heads that tell us we can’t and listening instead to those of mentors that have taught us along the way, the ones who have gone before with wisdom and experience.
  • 12. Like these wise words from the young king’s mother, “Ethan, never forget that courage is not the absence of fear, but doing what you know to be right in spite of it. Face your fear and it will lose its power over you.” The Dragon King, is not just a book, but has accompanying music for extra inspiration and an engaging experience that captivates children’s attention, involving them deeper into the principles the book teaches. The book is also repeated in Spanish at the end, reaching out to a wider audience. In addition, a companion Values Education curriculum, is also available for grades K-6. To learn more about this beautifully influential curriculum, please visit TheDragonKing.com I highly encourage you to head on over to Amazon to learn more about the author, Vivian Slade, and the story of the real “Ethan.” So, I want to leave you with these, soul searching, questions from the book, “How would I behave if I wasn’t afraid?” “What would I attempt to do?” “How bold would I be- how fast, how strong, how clever?” Think on that and remember, “No task lies before you so dreadful that you shall not master it.” For The Dragon King ebook, with the story in both English and Spanish: Click Here~ The Dragon King To enhance this empowering story with some musical engagement: King MP3 Download Catch Vivian and Johanna’s vision… Click Here~ The Dragon

Posted on October 21, 2013
  • 14. 1 “The greatest discovery of any generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.” ~William James Our attitude, mindset, what we focus on makes all the difference in the world! Welcome back to Mindful Monday! Today’s topic is a little technique called: Mind Storming Brian Tracy says that “Success is Predictable.” We have talked before about following a model or “recipe” if you will. Successful people learn from others. Mind Storming is a technique I recently learned from Mr. Tracy. Here’s how it goes… Set aside some time, take a piece of paper and write an open ended question at the top of something you wish to achieve. It’s important to make sure it is “open ended” as you will be tapping into the resources of your subconscious mind to come up with a myriad of answers! Example: “How can I earn $100,000 in the next 12 months?” Then write, at least, 20 answers to that question, all the things that you can think of, all the actions you could take to earn that $100,000 over the next 12 months. That’s it! Simple, 2-step process, question-answers. This, however simple, is powerful because it focuses your mind on all the possibilities. You may just come up with something obvious that you haven’t really thought about, but could make all the difference. Try It! For more details on this technique and other great tips, check out this interview with Brian Tracy and Vic Johnson:
  • 15. As you do this, you are manipulating your brain, so to speak. You are digging into the answers that are there waiting for you to discover. Be the Change you want to see in the world. You can do that, be the change, by getting started towards your goals, working on your mindset, and taking ownership of your own life. Mind Storming, that’s one business secret and for a bonus, in the next video, I talk about another… The Mirror Exercise
  • 16. For the full post and video with Jack, click here: Jack Canfield, Activate The Law of Attraction If you haven’t already, you are going to want to check out Friday’s post on Marketing Innovation. There I talk about another fabulous, brainstorming technique called “Mind Mapping.” It is a bit different from Mind Storming and a fabulous way to get those creative and innovative juices flowing! You can still get your 7 day FREE trial of the iMindMap Software here! Why? Because I love you, of course I hope you will think about implementing at least one of these techniques into your life and business NOW! There is a major life concept that goes like this, If you don’t change something, nothing will change!
  • 17. We have repeatedly heard that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If you want your life to change, you have to go out there and change it! It starts first with your mindset! I love getting your questions here on the blog and in our Facebook syndication group, so keep them coming. Answering your questions, provides deeper clarification for me, so thank you! As always, if you found this post and this site helpful, please “like & share!“ Wishing you a prosperous, successful week of following your dreams!

Top O’ the Mornin’ to Ya! (Watch it, the Irish is coming out!) I Love a Good Dose of Innovation and Creativity! So, I was perusing the internet while listening to an audio this week and came across a picture that caught my eye. It wasn’t a cool filter or creative composition that grabbed my attention, rather a creative business concept! A pink truck to be more specific…
  • 18. The pink is not what struck me either, though some great marketing there as it depicts the business, no it was the idea its self. (The picture and article are via Loren’s World, so definitely check out the link here for more: http://www.lorensworld.com/life-work/fashion-trucks-mobile-boutiques-popping-up-everywhere/) I was intrigued, because I love to see people who take a passion and implement it into business in an innovative and creative way. We have hot dog and ice cream trucks, even dog grooming trucks, so why not a fashion boutique! Le Fashion Truck’s creators, Stacey Steffe and Jeanine Romo, met at an arts and crafts market back in 2009. A friendship was built and passions combined into the pink truck you can now see parked around Los Angeles. Yes, it even has a dressing room! This brought me to a topic that, upon my remembrance, we haven’t discussed thoroughly enough for Fanship Friday. And that’s, Innovation! I remember, back in the day, being in a middle school drama group performing my classic “mime in a box” routine. My
  • 19. director also had this awesome old, hollowed out TV set that we would climb inside and pretend we were on TV or “in the box.” While that was fun and all, “in the box” is the last place I want to be with my business! Get out of the BOX! We have talked about rules and concepts for branding and social media. We have even talked about following a trusted model from someone who is already successful, so you’re not trying to “reinvent the wheel.” I truly believe in the power of having a model, plan, and guidelines to follow. Let’s face it, without proven concepts, it is all just too overwhelming. Here’s the kicker… When you having a proven base to build from, it frees you to open up that box and put your own spin on things. Following a proven model, does not mean you can’t take those skills and apply some innovation and creativity! In fact, I would say it is completely necessary if you want to create a business and life you love! As the Dalai Lama said, “Know the rules well, so you can break them effectively.” So, can we train ourselves to more creative and innovative? Yes, yes we can! Tony Buzan, a leading educational consultant and creator of the “mind mapping” technique, has some fantastic advice for us…
  • 20. Think you’re not creative? Wrong! Everyone is creative! It’s about integration of the left and right brain hemispheres Practice Speed and Fluency Originality, that thinking “outside the box” Flexibility of thought, there is more than one way to get there Imagination and association, creating links between different ideas I enjoy mind mapping and have used the concept for everything from business ideas, like revamping this site, to personal development and what I’m seeking in life. To engage fans in this fast paced, digital age, it’s time to get innovative! So why not give mind mapping a go and watch as the ideas flow freely from that brain of yours like the Niagara Falls If you have enjoyed this post and found it helpful, don’t forget to “like & share!” Go out there and get Innovative! The world needs all that uniqueness only you can bring!

Posted on October 14, 2013
  • 22. 1 Welcome to a New Week My “Personal Development” Gurus! The Master Mind As a new week begins, I want to share with you some inspiration and FREE Resources to get you pumped about about your day, your week, your life! Why? Because, I’m just awesome like that Napoleon Hill, in his landmark bestseller, Think and Grow Rich, had this to say about the “Master Mind”…. The “Master Mind” may be defined as: “coordination of knowledge and effort, in a spirit of harmony, between two or more people, for the attainment of a definite purpose.” Participating in a Master Mind is about gaining energy, power, and inspiration, from the effort of the group! Hill goes so far as to say, GREAT POWER CAN BE ACCUMULATED THROUGH NO OTHER PRINCIPLE! When you work with other “like minded” folks, towards a definite purpose, whether success, wealth, or expansion, you place yourself in an alliance of power and intelligence. Fabulous, Right!!! So, why am I telling you this? I recently started getting back on calls with my “Master Mind” group and I want to share it with you! I’m inviting you to join us on the calls and it is absolutely FREE! It is a fabulous way to start the day with a positive mindset. The calls happen at 8am for me here in South America, but 9am EST. The calls are non-specific to a certain company, allowing all of us to participate. We read and re-read through books together by authors such as Napoleon Hill and Wallace Wattles, then listen is as we all Master Mind together. If time is an issue, put on your speaker and listen as you get ready for the day. You can also catch the replay at anytime before the next recording. I wanted to share this with you, because it is such a fantastic resource to join in with positive people who are
  • 23. excited about their lives and experiencing success! Give it a try, here’s how… Get on the calls and watch your success, confidence, and faith soar! Since it is Monday and you could probably use all the inspiration you can get, I have one more thing I want to share. Well, make that two. Here are short videos that I enjoy watching in the morning when I wake up. They put things in perspective and give me calmness and peace for the day. You can check them out below and if you enjoy them, consider implementing them into your daily routine…
  • 24. Please “like & share” this post, this site, and all the fabulous resources! Wake up and say with me: “I bring a powerful and loving presence to every space I enter today!!!”
  • 25. Rock out this Monday and everyday hereafter! XOXO Hil <3 ~Don’t forget to visit me on social media by clicking those cute little “take out cups” in the sidebar!

Posted on October 11, 2013 1 Welcome back to Fanship Friday, Cha Ching!!! I say “Cha Ching” because what I’m sharing with you today could save you a ton of money and even make you money if you wish! So, are ya ready? (Jeopardy music inserted here…) Ok, ok, so one of my most favorite resources for my online business ever, is Fiverr.com
  • 26. So, Why do I love Fiverr so much and why am I including it in Fanship Friday? First it’s cheap with gigs starting at, you guessed it, $5 Second there is a huge variety of gigs that can help you expand your business and engage fans. You can order videos made to your specifications, have someone share your links over high volume social media sites, or post an affiliate banner for you. People will even sing you a song or hold your sign by a landmark if that’s what suites your fancy. Third, Fiverr just rocks. In the morning, they ask me if I’ve had my coffee. In the evening, it’s all about my dinner. Call me crazy, but I like a website that has concern for my nourishment. Looking for work? You can create your own gigs to share too! I don’t know anywhere else you can get such awesomeness for 5 bucks, do you? From the fun and bizarre, to advertising, writing, and social media, give it a go! With a simple sign up, you’re on your way to hiring some great folks to help you out. Let’s face it, when you are just starting out online or with any type of business, you likely don’t have massive amounts of funding.

  • 28. voice? Here’s the thing… Many of the most successful people, take what they learn from those that have gone before and implement it into their own businesses. Nothing wrong with that!

Welcome Back to Mindful Monday the Life of a New Week! Last week’s “mindful” post was a bit intense. Lots to watch, read, take in, and implement. If you missed it, feel free to check it out here: Jack Canfield- Activate The Law of Attraction This week, I’ll keep it a bit lighter with a reminder to Live, Love, Breathe, and Move! In the words of Kahlil Gibran, Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

I never found a companion that was so companionable as solitude. ~Henry David Thoreau These incredible hats, tell me to add a bit of color and spunk to life! Don’t be afraid to be yourself, be a bit more daring, and well, colorful! If you’re quiet, you’re not living. You’ve got to be noisy and colorful and lively. ~Mel Brooks The mimes? Keep that childlike sense of wonder as you express yourself to the world!

If music be the food of love, play on. ~William Shakespeare Move, Live, Be, and radiate that joy from within. As you are filled, so shall you fill others!
