Joint Ventures, PR Beyond the Backyard No Comments

12-Reasons-Report (3)FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAGUNA BEACH, CA, March 13, 2014 /– Client attraction, list building, and joint ventures are high priorities for coaches and consultants around the world who are serious about growing their businesses now.  Figuring out the specific how-to details to create those results fast is a source of serious frustration for many.  That is why Milana Leshinsky and Rich German, co-founders of JV Insider Circle, LLC, have released a revealing new report to bring in the relief, the education, and the support for a limited time only – March 13 – March 28, 2014.

Breaking the JV Code: Top 12 Reasons Joint Venture Partners Will NEVER Promote You! explains the specific, road-tested lessons that coaches, consultants, and experts can apply to unlock this influential strategy to their expert and bottom line advantage, starting now.  Within this ebook, Leshinsky and German define and explain what not to do and the right ways to proceed to initiate and nurture lasting and rewarding strategic partnerships.

“The truth is there are 12 major mistakes new joint venture partners make that lead to potential disappointment or disaster,” Leshinsky explains.  

They are:

1.     Making a pitch without creating a relationship first

2.     Suggesting irrelevant offers that aren’t a good fit

3.     Offering a generic program that fails to solve a specific problem

4.     Failing to put the partner’s needs front and center

5.     Not putting enough juice in the reward package

6.     Failing to establish trust

7.     Forgetting to ask for reciprocation

8.     Winging it instead of being ready with quality communications and support at every turn

9.     Extending confusing offers that fail to inspire action

10.  Talking too much, writing too much, and not getting to the meat of the matter fast

11.  Boring a potential partner with an invitation that is blah-blah-blah and boilerplate instead of compelling, controversial and epic.

12.  Showing up with unprofessional, unremarkable marketing materials that scream “So what?” instead of “Wow.”

Leshinsky and German run million-dollar coaching and information business empires from home offices on the East and West Coast. They credit joint ventures as their leading strategy and are now sharing their best lessons for success with the world.

“Our new ebook elaborates about each of these points so we can guide action takers around the world to earn joint venture success right out of the gate,” Leshinsky explains.  We share what we’ve learned from the trenches as top performing joint venture partners for luminaries including Robert Allen, Loral Langemeier, Bob Proctor, Alex Mandossian, Mary Morrissey, Christian Mickelsen, Lisa Sasevich, Kendall SumerHawk, Callan Rush, and others.

Wealth Through Workshops Founder Callan Rush says this report is eye opening, educational, and empowering.  She says, “We’re constantly reminding our clients to focus on these types of profitable relationships… Breaking the JV Code will empower thousands of business owners around the world, starting right now.”

Media Placement Success Worthy of Global Celebration — 191,000 Placements So Far for Mona Lisa Code

PR Beyond the Backyard No Comments

Today I received an email about media placement success that is so exciting that I just have to share it.  It came from Elizabeth Venturini.  She writes, ” I just received a phone call from PRWEB.  This is the news agency that I used to send out the release about the Mona Lisa Code.  The guy that spoke with me said he was red flagged by his manager that our release generated 191,000 placements!  He said it is trending very high on Yahoo news right now. He said PRWEB has NEVER I repeat NEVER received this many placements on a single release.  The guy asked me, “Tell me again who are you? And what does your husband do?”  He was stunned that we made the number one news agency in Italy.”

Elizabeth learned her media relations lessons well as one of the students enrolled in the group webinar series that is gearing up to start again on October 5.  Before enrolling in this course, Elizabeth didn’t know how to write a press release, write a story pitch, or respond to a reporter query.  She hesitated to invest the $497 to enroll, but she took the plunge to see what she could learn and apply to her benefit.  Now she is very glad that she did because the media placement results around the world have put her husband’s expertise on the map in a big way.

Bottom Line:  Elizabeth jumped in to learn her lessons well, and the media results have been beyond her wildest expectations and those of the top brass at PRWeb.   Today she told me a query she made has resulted in an invitation for her husband Scott Lund to appear on a radio show — — that is ranked the number 4 top radio program in the country, averaging eleven to twelve million listeners daily, and  heard in over 200 plus markets.  Segments of the show are often replayed on fox news; cable’s number one news channel.  The interview is slated for Wed. September 14, 2011.

Below is an example of how she made her approach.  If you want to learn these lessons to your own benefit, enroll in the Broadcast Your Brilliance Webinar Series by 9-23-11.  The course packs a punch for empowering your success in preparing and sharing your story, and the results Elizabeth has shared are powerful proof.

Press Release to Grow Your List? It Can Work, and Here’s How

PR Beyond the Backyard No Comments

In today’s internet age, there is a great deal of buzz about list building. The bigger your list, the greater your wealth. That is why you hear about so many courses to help you learn how to build yours.

Experts say — and I agree — that  you should offer a free gift in exchange for joining your ezine in the first place.  You can write articles for online article directories that invite readers to opt-in to your list.  You can create auto-responders that invite new followers on Twitter to join your list.  You can host teleseminars and webinars that require listeners to opt-in to benefit.  You can stage a contest next time you speak live and collect business cards by permission to enter to win (and join your list.)   You can create networking business cards thatq entice new people you meet to visit your site, enjoy your free gift, and benefit from your ezine.  And, you can joint venture with like-minded partners who have established communities of people who can benefit from your subject matter expertise.  All of these approaches work to grow your list.  All of them are among the strategies I employ.   My list size has doubled since January, so the results are measurable and clear.

However, if you are early on in your business and don’t yet have a big list, it can be slow going to attract joint venture partners. The big players with the big lists are likely going to be reluctant to invite you to play with them because you haven’t yet earned the influence to make an impact that they can feel in their online shopping carts.

So, with all that said, what is a business owner to do when the desire is to attract lots of interest when your own list is still small?

One idea is to issue a press release over a wire service to enjoy widespread distribution of your news. This press release should offer information that is timely, newsworthy, relevant, interesting, and remarkable as opposed to a “buy this service or product now” kind of message. If, for example, your company has something to offer that is timely for the “back to school” theme, tell that story, offer tips and information to inform the reader, and offer a way for the reader to learn even more — by opting into your ezine list to benefit from your free gift that offers a check list of everything you need to be ready for back to school with ease.

And, if you were to create a schedule of compelling news releases — perhaps once a month — to share your unfolding news with the world, readers would have additional reasons to visit your website or blog, opt-in to benefit from your ezine, and get even more familiar with the products and services you offer.   Once people join your list, you can send them a series of auto-responder messages that generously share tips and resources to guide them to enjoy success with your company as a trusted resource.   In short order, many of these new subscribers just might make the wise decision to become your paying clients or customers.

Does it cost a few bucks to send a press release over the wire?  Yes.   But look at it this way.   The lifetime value of one perfect client is more than enough to achieve return on that modest investment.

I have had excellent success inviting media interviews and new ezine opt-ins by sending press releases over the wire.  That is why I can make this recommendation to you with confidence.  This service does a great job for me.  Check it out to share your news, grow your list, and invite more perfect readers to get excited about what you have brewing.

Sharing the Bye-Bye Boring Bio Message with 80,000 People in Japan

PR Beyond the Backyard No Comments

Today a favorable review and useful tips from Bye-Bye Boring Bio debuts to reach English speaking people in Japan.

How did this come about, you may be wondering.  My short explanation is that one good thing often leads to another.

A few weeks ago, Dan Janal — founder of PR Leads — hosted me for a teleseminar during which I shared how to transform boring bios from wallpaper to wow to attract clients now.   About 200 people from all over the USA and beyond tuned in to enjoy the call, including William Reed.  (You can listen in to the interview by visiting this link.)

William Reed is a blogger and newspaper columnist based in Japan who writes for the Daily YOMIURI Newspaper, Japan’s largest English daily paper.  He also writes blog called Entrepreneurs Creative Edge.  You can check out everything William Reed has brewing by visiting his site.  He tells me that combined readership of his  site, blog and the newspaper is about 80,000 people.

William liked the tips and examples I shared during the teleseminar, purchased his own copy of Bye-Bye Boring Bio, and crafted a new bio to serve his interests in attracting clients and more.   The lessons he learned during the process inspired him to write a column about the importance of a good bio.  He also posted a five-star review about Bye-Bye Boring Bio to Amazon.

What is the big lesson here?  One is that you never know how far and wide your message will carry or who will be in the audience when you speak to share your message.  Put your best message forward with every audience you address because influential people are likely listening who have the power to take your message far and beyond.

Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that Bye-Bye Boring Bio would find an audience in Japan.  Today, it has.

Thanks Dan Janal for the opportunity to share my message with your community.

Thanks William Reed for being in the audience to hear the message and for sharing it with so many more people who can benefit.

Can’t wait to see what happens next!

NPR, CNBC, and USA Today – Hurray for Guaranteed Press Releases

Event Promotion, PR Beyond the Backyard 2 Comments

Today is the day that news about the debut of the 2nd  edition of Bye-Bye Boring Bio is traveling far and wide, thanks to a Guaranteed Press Release sent over the wire this morning.   Already the news has showed up on sites for, NPRUSA Today, and beyond.  The phone has been ringing with inquiries, the online shopping cart has been active with orders, and a prestigious business journal has asked to review the product.  It’s all good, and it’s only 10:30 a.m., so the day is young.

Would I love for the Red Sea to part and have thousands of people beat a path to my online shopping cart to buy?  Of course.   But to tell you the truth, that isn’t my expectation.

I issued this press release today because I want to invite new potential clients to sample the content I share, become members of my community, and get to a place of like, trust, and respect so when they are ready for what I offer, I am the first on their consideration list.  Having news about my company show up on the sites for prestigious media outlets gives me bragging rights I didn’t have prior, and that helps differentiate my offerings from those operating in obscurity.

This is a long distance race I am running here.   I don’t expect leaps and bounds progress.   I am paving a path for slow and steady success that is built one deliberate step at a time.

What I know for sure is that the second edition of Bye-Bye Boring Bio is the only guide of its kind that is focused squarely on helping solopreneurs get seen, heard, celebrated and compensated for their expert status.  It will continue to find its audience among the 27 million folks doing business in Free Agent Nation.  Over time, people will come to view me as the expert who serves in this capacity.  Whether folks purchase the Bye-Bye Boring Bio system, enroll in one of my Bye-Bye Boring Bio Action Workshops, engage me to perform their Extreme Bio Makeovers, or invite me to bring my workshops or my keynote presentations to much larger audiences by teleseminar, webinar, or live presentation, I am here to serve.  I’ll continue to do my part to banish boring bios forever so more people can attract more of the right opportunities to make their unique and well compensated contribution to the marketplace.

Now, thanks to my Guaranteed Press Release, a great many more people know that I am here to help.   Rome wasn’t built in a day.  It happened brick by brick.   It’s all good.

If you want to learn more about how to use Guaranteed Press Releases to build the buzz about what you have brewing, be sure to register for tomorrow’s call with Dan Janal at 10 a.m. PST.  I’ll be interviewing Dan Janal about this very program.    Spaces are filling fast, so be sure to claim yours by registering at this link.

By the way, the September 17 Bye-Bye Boring Bio Action Workshop is sold out, and we are accepting registrations for the October 17 and November 12 dates.  If you are ready to transform your boring bio from wallpaper to wow, register today.
