Welcome to Day 4 of the #3StepsNoExcuses journey with me, Rob Willmann.
If you're not familiar with this process, be sure to check out Day 1 where I go over the whole process.
Today is day 4 already. Wow! I know I am excited about building momentum with creating content and videos. The video portion is getting a bit better. Yesterday's video took me several takes to get right due to 'false starts'. However I feel like I am getting more in the groove of making these. :)
Here's what you can expect in my daily updates:
- A short list of the three steps,
- My results and thoughts about each step.
- A link to my 3Steps Today email course funnel so I can grow my list. (I am a marketer after all.)
- Current amount of CTP, Hive, PoB, Leo the @threesteps account owns.
Glad you're here! Let's get started.
Your 3 Steps for Day 4 of #3StepsNoExcuses
- Watch ClickTrackProfit's "Instagram" and "Youtube" training videos.
- Check your CTR on List Nerds. Reviewing your mailing history is critical.
- Watch Plus 1 Success "Try Something New" and act on it.
1. Watch ClickTrackProfit's "Instagram" and "Youtube" training videos.
Login to Click Track Profit, and you'll see the "Instagram" and "Youtube" videos near the beginning of the "Click!" section like the screenshot up there.
I find it interesting that Jon likes Gary Vaynerchuk, who really uses Instagram. :P There's over a billion Instagram accounts so it's a huge social media platform that's very visually-oriented around video and photos.
I used Instagram for my dad jokes account, and published a lot of joke memes on Instagram. Definitely easy to use.
Get onboard with it. The recommended content is micro-videos, small bite-size pieces of content.
The Youtube video is very similar. Jon does a good job of explaining the main nav buttons across the top of the Youtube studio section. I used to use Youtube quite a bit, and made over a hundred dad joke videos. However I've switched to using 3Speak for my videos now and it's working out OK. I think I get better engagement here on the blockchain than I do on Youtube.
Regardless, it's worth watching the videos and expanding your knowledge. After completing this step, it's time for List Nerds.
2. Check your CTR on List Nerds. Reviewing your mailing history is critical.
Click through rate is important when it comes to email marketing. It's the number of clicks within your email to the URL that you are promoting in the email.
For example, in the screenshot above, the top email sent on May 5th was sent to 5847 people. 52 of them opened the email. And of those, 19 clicked the link. Therefore it's 19/5847, which equals 0.325%.
The higher the clickthrough the better. Realistically, 19 clicks isn't bad from 52 opens. usually I am even higher, as you can see by the stats.
Each one of those numbers represents real people. We may be talking about stats, but those stats represent real folks. Never forget that.
After reviewing your own CTR on your List Nerd emils, check out Plus 1 Success!
3. Watch Plus 1 Success "Try Something New" and act on it.
Login to Plus 1 Success, and check out Day 4's video. (Note: If you haven't upgraded, you still have access to all of the material from the 30 days in ebook form. :)
In this video, it's all about trying something new and sticking out. Jon's video actually includes the 'vortex of death'. which we will discuss more of in a later post. For now, just remember that in order to get out of a rut or downward cycle, you have to try something new.
This is truly powerful stuff, and I definitely recommend that you get out of your comfort zone, try something new, and stick out. Be top of mind!
Now let's talk about crypto. (This is what makes all the #leo folks happy, lol!)
Current holdings for @threesteps account
|Token Name||Amount Held Yesterday||Amount Held Today||Difference|
Not much this time around. CTP tokens are at the top of the leaderboard with ~ 14 CTP tokens. I expect that these numbers are going to grow, considering it was ~ a week ago when I slowed down on my curation for a couple days in preparation for this challenge.
With that, have a wonderful day. Go start promoting your online business with the new tools you now have in-hand.
That's it! Cya tomorrow. Please reach out to me if you have questions.
P.S. One last item:
I created a 30-day free email course on the # 3StepsNoExcuses journey mentioned above, and I'd really like to hear what you think about the content. You can sign up by clicking this link and then confirming your email address. The course lines up with the daily steps, and I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Also, I've created an account on Hive blockchain called @ ThreeSteps. It's a curation account that upvotes quality content on the blockchain. Mention this account in your post and I'll swing by and take a look. This is a community tool to increase earnings of people who write good content. I will specifically look for and upvote # 3StepsNoExcuses and # 3StepsToday posts first. I upvote quality content, and stake 100% of the Hive, CTP, and #leo this account earns. That way votes from this account increase as fast as possible.
