WIMME update – JP’s secret job at WIMME in San Francisco

WIMME conference in San Francisco hosted by Mike Filesaime, Tom Beal, Donna Fox and Paulie Sabol had a very special speaker flown in on Saturday night.

Here are pictures from WIMME (World Internet Marketing Main Event) and if you’d like some video of this secret event, I was able to sneak in a video camera – because I knew both the guys standing guard that evening.

So – with the appropriate bribing – er – I mean begging – via comments on this post – I’ll share some secret, behind the scenes video of the speaker shown below.

Ok – I’ll admit – I actually have a HUGE crush on the guy on the right guarding the man. Shhhhhh!

3 good men

Making sure no libs are in the audience posing a threat.

“Hey! I think that’s Mike Koenigs from Traffic Geyser! How’d he sneak in here?!”

(Long story – but it involved a heated discussion at the Elephant Bar the night before. A worthy debater – and now a great friend.)

Apparently, two shakkas make a “Dubba” (W)

Oooooooh! I got to take a picture with the guy on the right!!! How EXCITING! Boy, Paulie Shore – I mean Paulie Sabol sure knows how to entertain “us girls” at the WIMME conference!

Who IS that masked man?!

Is Donna Fox REALLY giving Da Man her digits?! She ROCKS!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures from this year’s secret speaker at WIMME. Let me know if you’d like me to share some videos from this night – and I’ll risk my life to share them with ya. You’re bound to get a good laugh too – guaranteed or your money back!

Microfinance: How You Can Change the World, One Poor Entrepreneur at a Time

Microfinance, like New Media, puts the power in the hands of the little guy. Rare thinking entrepreneurs like you know what it takes to go at it on your own. You are willing to risk it all and reap the rewards. If you are grateful for what you have, and you’d like to discover how you can quickly and painlessly give a poor person a hand up instead of a hand out — take three-minutes to review this report. You’ll quickly realize how big of a difference you can really make with a very small action.

In India, Vadla Baguma with her buffalo business is one small example of the power of microfinance. To date she has repaid in full all her loans up to $600. With her most recent loan, Baguma decided to diversify beyond their buffalo milk business. She purchased a sewing machine and does mending for hire. With this additional income she is able to send her son to school. He’s the first in their family to do so.



Women stepping up

In the world of microfinance, most loans go to women. Industry averages run at 95% repayment rates with women. The money when repaid cycles back in and is re-loaned to other micro-entrepreneurs. The money supply grows with interest being added to the repayments.

Microfinancing is a way for poor people to get access to the same economic power that creates wealth in every capitalist economy in the world.

The poor of the world seem likes such a big job. We all want to do it, but it’s difficult to get your hands around. With microfinance you — yes you, one single person — CAN make a significant, and direct impact on the lives of dozens and possibly hundreds of people.

You can change a family’s destiny right now

This weekend, September 13-16th, as speakers at the World Internet Marketing Main Event in San Francisco, we’re proud to be part of a special funding drive for Unitus called “Internet Marketers Against Poverty.” And you, as an independent, gifted business person, can help an entrepreneur change her family’s destiny this weekend.

Unitus is one of the world’s leading microfinance accelerators. They won the 2006 Fast Company Social Capitalist Award. Unitus invests in microfinancing organizations in the world’s poorest countries with finances and consulting. They are decreasing poverty by increasing access to finance, and that is where you come in.

With just $5.50 you can help one micro-entrepreneur fuel their dreams to better the lives of their family. And while you can do that anytime, this weekend’s funding drive is rewarding you for taking action now.

Normally I shy away from “rewarding” people for helping others. But this venture is so different, so powerful — because it’s a “hand up” rather than a “hand out” — that Deb and I just had to participate.

We, along with dozens of other marketers and entrepreneurs have donated products that are bundled together as thank you gifts for your taking action during this funding drive.

Depending on your donation, you can get up to $2,200 in high quality products as a reward for taking action. (Note: rules for contributions of products required that these be products that are currently sold, not given away free. So this is a real bonus package.) The goal is to raise $300,000 in four days.

To help micro-entrepreneurs glimpse a shadow of the self-sustaining dream that you and I live as successful business people live, go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now.

When the Wright brothers flew their plane for the first time, it stayed in the air for 20-seconds. It covered 120-ft. At that time we could have said “so what.” But that little flight changed the world. For the first time a human being flew.

Microfinance is the Wright Bothers plane in the fight against poverty. It is covering that 120-ft in the efforts to help poor people. If you could, (and you can,) wouldn’t you be willing to help get it off that ground and help the poor around the world help themselves?

Help us hit the $300,000 goal in added funding this weekend. Go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now and choose your donation level.

You’ll be rewarded not just with the knowledge that you’re given a hand up to entrepreneurs in the world’s poorest countries, and directly impacted the lives of hundreds of people in a tangible, lasting way — you’ll also get the bonus gift packages listed as our thank you gift for helping.

New Media Marketing In Action – Live at TIMME and WIMME

We’ve just arrived to San Francisco where we’ll be speaking about Web 2.0 and New Media Marketing at this year’s *WIMME event with Paulie Sabol, Donna Fox, Mike Filsaime, Stephen Pierce and other leading internet marketing gurus.

Try not to feel sorry for us as we’re busy traveling and “networking” as we speak and promote our book, blog software and business in San Fransisco, California.

Sure, we’ll be mega busy… but if this “Networking” Video gives you any indication how “tough” it is living the ultimate business owner’s lifestyle, how networking for joint venture partners and deals is REALLY done – then you’ll not only NOT feel bad for us… you’ll want to JOIN us this Saturday morning at the Marriott Hotel in San Francisco for the WIMME event!

* WIMME = World Internet Marketing Main Event Formally called TIMME which the above video was from the night after we spoke from the main stage to promote our book, Secrets of Online Persuasion, and Blogi360 – originally called Blog Interactive 360 when the course was first released.

I gotta’ say, ever since that night, Harris Fellman (the funny guy who coined the word “POG” won my lasting friendship with all the laughs he gave me! Plus – he’s a really cool guy with a ton of integrity. And he really knows how to market using Web 2.0 Mafiosa style.

Oh – btw: if anyone’s wondering where I am at this networking soiree, I’m behind the camera – and even though I was primarily drinking iced tea, these guys had me laughing so freaking hard, I couldn’t hold the camera straight. Sorry about that!

But you’ll be able to catch me in the pictures at the end – I’m right in the middle on the last shot.

Note to self – at THIS year’s WIMME event in San Fransisco – give the camera to someone ELSE while shooting video – so people will know who is behind the camera.

Anyhoo – I’m looking forward to getting away, and “networking” at this week’s WIMME in San Francisco. We’ll be speaking Saturday morning (that’s this weekend) – as we’ll be hosting the “New Media Marketing Mimosa Party” soooo – let’s hold the evening partying for SATURDAY Night, so we can celebrate the event’s success and “network” with all of you who are here in San Fransisco with us.

Deal?!

PS: Thanks to the powerful Blogi360 system, I can be in TWO places at one time! Right now, I’m at my booth in San Fransisco, setting things up, meeting a ton of new people, and JP is entertaining a bunch of cool folks at the WIMME event, with his new magic tricks he’s been practicing on me and all our neighbors. (Tribal Seduction at its best!) All the while as we’re busy connecting with our tribe, attracting new tribe members and checking into our hotel, our Blogi360 is busy posting and updating social networking sites FOR me – so I don’t have to!

Ahhhh – Here’s a toast to having the best systems for your business so you can have a life – or make money while Blogi360 does the “grunt work” so I don’t have to! LOL!

    Tribal Seduction Principle #05: Connect to Convert With New Media Marketing Reversals (Pt 2)

    Do you remember hearing in part one of this article why old-school interruption style marketing is dead? It’s true, especially online. We looked at one cause, the "Delusional Coma". Then we showed how you can reverse that common online marketer disease and use it to your advantage with the Tribal Seduction Formula; CHARM™ (Captivate – Hook – Advance – Reinforce – Motivate).

    As you read through part two here, you’ll quickly see how to turn the challenges of marketing and selling online into big advantages for you.

    Let’s get right to the second major cause for the death of interruption style marketing…

    Reversal #2: The waves and the weather

    In the regular off-line world, weather is simply a set of meteorological conditions we experience in any geographic area. The marketplace is no different.

    If you were to assume the conditions of the online marketplace are the same as last year, that would be just as silly as crossing the Rocky Mountains in January without checking the weather forecast. Don’t try this at home kids… either one will lead to injury or death! ;-)

    Today’s online marketplace is a new world thanks to the influence of New Media and Web 2.0. And this is a big problem for many marketers.

    Old school marketers resistant to marketplace changes are like Eskimos building igloos in Hawaii. They can be the best at what they do, but continue to rebuild what won’t work in this new online environment.

    Three years ago a shift in the mainstream marketplace began like tiny waves lapping away at the shoreline. Today, those changes have become a tsunami of change sweeping across the business landscape.

    That tidal wave of transformation is powered not so much by New Media itself. But by the illusion of control that New Media gives to the "man or woman on the street." (Yes, it is an illusion, and we’ll be discussing in detail how you can covertly harness and benefit from this sociological fact as time goes on.)

    online marketing transformed by new media marketing waves

    The reality of the marketplace is this; the "average Joe and Jane" have grabbed their surf boards and are freely riding the waves of the New Media marketplace. They "get it." The ones sitting on the shoreline watching in fear are small business owners, marketers, and sales professionals.

    Some eager marketers do dive in. They doggie-paddle furiously, trying to peddle their wares using New Media channels with old-school marketing tactics. But as they flail about in the fast moving waters, they’re caught up in hidden rip-tides and swept away very quickly. Their videos, posts, podcasts, and entire web presence flounders as the marketplace pummels them like a 40-foot wave on a black-flag beach day.

    There are only so many more days they can crawl back up on the beach of constrained thinking and return to poorly veiled versions of their old tactics. Soon the rising tide consumer control will swamp the beach, and their businesses. Trust me — you DO NOT want to join them.

    So how can you dive in to the New Media marketplace and not get swamped?

    Well, there is the obvious — following along, engaging, and making connections here at Tribal Seduction. :-)

    But the most important action you can do is to grasp this simple Tribal Seduction mindset:

      People buy WHO you are, NOT what you are selling.

    Re-read that and let it sink in for a minute.

    No matter how good you are at what you do in life, it’s not as important as who it is you are.

    once you grasp that mindset, get out into waters of the New Media Marketplace. there are three ways for you to start applying this new mindset to make a heck of lot more money (and make it easier too.)

      1. Find the influence leaders (those who gather Tribes of raving fans in social networks, blogs, podcasts, online video, and even off-line on specialized cable channels. Observe who these people are, what they do, and how their fans respond.
      3. If you’re the sharp marketer I know you are, (and yes I know that you’re a savvy person because you’ve read this far,) then building a true "Web presence", not just a Web site should be tops on your list too.

    "Web site" vs. a "Web Presence"

    A Web site sits there and you work for it. You drive the traffic, the content is only seen by people who come to it, and it is a one-way channel.

    A Web presence on the other hand — it lives and works for you… 24-7-365! Add content to different New Media channels and each channel will work for you, bringing people from targeted Tribe to you. You can use individual channels like blogs, podcasts, online video and social networks combining them on your own with list-building and conversion sites. OR you can use a complete integrated Web presence builder like the BLOG i360 New Media marketing system.

    No matter which route you start with, remember the Tribal Seduction mindset of "WHO is more important than WHAT."

    Don’t worry about finding people succeeding in Tribal Seduction in your niche. It’s actually an advantage to model ideas from outside your niche or industry. Just start out with two or three of the most popular shows, sites, or personas for each channel and follow them regularly.

    When you do this you’ll begin to see the "Who you are, not what you’re selling" principle at work. And as you learn more secret tells of Tribal Seduction, you’ll be able to put it to work for you.

    You can use both the Delusional Coma and the Waves and Weather to your advantage. These two factors are working together, and they’re changing the rules for marketing online.

    No longer can you just be a Marketplace Molester, "info-product" pusher or List Pimp

    It’s true both online and off-line, (unless you want to work 4-times as hard for a fraction of the results.) The big bucks and the big fame are being garnered by those who use the Tribal Seduction Formula of CHARM to continuously move people to higher and higher levels of seduction.

    If it’s not obvious to you yet, it will become crystal clear as we begin to reveal more of the Tribal Seduction mindset needed to win friends and influence people in today’s marketplace.

    As we roll into Tribal Seduction strategies, and various studies or commentaries on online marketing strategies that work with people (instead of using them) — you’ll see how you can win where yesterday’s gurus are faltering.
