Welcome to Day 7 of the #3StepsNoExcuses journey with me, Rob Willmann.
Today is Day 7 and I am glad you're along-side me on this journey. You may have noticed that I skipped yesterday. I did. No excuses. Moving on.
One of the real perks of doing this 30 day workout is that you have the support of the CTP tribe behind you. The first trip through this for me was stellar simply because it showed how supportive the entire CTP tribe is, and the results of having that support.
This time it's different. The support from the CTP gang is still stellar. The difference is this time I'm going back through the 30 days, and recording videos. It's like when my son and I did dad jokes for days in a row, but a little different. Still "Quite Enjoyable"(tm). It's helping me grow as a marketer and get adjusted to being back in front of the camera.
If you're not familiar with this process, be sure to check out Day 1 where I go over the whole process.
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.
Your 3 Steps for Day 7 of #3StepsNoExcuses
- Watch the CTP Training Video "Like Stuff!"
- Review Your ListNerd's email subjects and constantly test.
- Watch Plus 1 Success video, "Sharing Something Positive". Then go do that.
1. Watch the CTP Training Video "Like Stuff!"
Login to Click Track Profit, and locate the "Click!" section and find the video called "Like Stuff!"
The beloved curation. ClickTrackProfit really does a good job of teaching people how to be good humans, who are treat their fellow marketers with dignity and respect. I love that.
In today's video, Jon O shares Sheila Alezander's list of How to Support A Friend's Small Business For Free. The bulleted list of ways we can support each other is tremendous, and needs to be ingrained in your marketing efforts.
Included are gems such as:
- Share a Post
- Comment a Nice Word
- Comment An Emoji, etc...
It's no cost! Go out of your way to support others.
This was an easy one for me. I own an account that is specifically made for liking and commenting on the posts of others - my @threesteps account.
I love supporting others via online promotion.
It really works, and when listening to Jon on this video, you can hear his passion. This is the heart of what we should do on the blockchain. Help others even if it's just by being encouraging.
Like and comment on other people's stuff.
Time for List Nerds.
2. Review Your ListNerd's email subjects and constantly test.
I enjoy email marketing. At first, I was worried that I was doing it all wrong. (I'm sure I was). But once I started working on my emails, the quality of what I send and the subject lines, the engagement on my mailings went up.
I've been split testing my subjects on ListNerds, and running the same ad twice - once with a personalized subject (using the reader's first name) and another email with the same subject only not personalized.
One glaring change I've made is to use a 'Sign Up!' Button in my emails and on ListNerds instead of a regular text link asking for the click. That was a definite improvement in my overall results. Thanks Blain!
After you've reviewed your subject lines, check out Plus 1 Success!
3. Watch Plus 1 Success video, "Sharing Something Positive". Then go do that.
Login to Plus 1 Success, and check out the video for day 7:
"Sharing Something Positive"
At the get-go on the video, Jon starts out with a big callout: most people don't even watch day 1. Yet here you are on Day 7! Excellent.
I like this one because there's a great screenshot from "The End of Procrastination" that talks about why sharing positive stuff is a great idea.
Note: If you haven't upgraded, you still have access to all of the material from the 30 days in ebook form. :)
Now let's talk about crypto. (Entering #leo mode.)
Current holdings for @threesteps account
|Token Name||Amount Held Yesterday||Amount Held Today||Difference|
Yesterday I put some fiat into the game, and purchased ~ $140 USD in Hive. I staked 1/4 of the Hive and some of the CTP, and then I used the remainder to purchase Hive Index tokens for my #robwillmann account, since that's the account where I keep all my Hive Index. That purchase bumped me up the richlist to 22nd. I have a ways to go if I am going to surpass Blain. :D
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.
^ Click that button to sign up for my free 30-day ecourse "3 Steps Today to Success".
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.
