New Media Marketing Case Study: How to Piggy-back On Emotional Anchors to Boost Your Profits

Madison Avenue advertising firms do it. Mainstream marketers do it. Political campaigns do it. They all piggy-back on the emotional anchoring created by famous singers, actors, and sports figures. It’s a marketing strategy with a proven track-record. People bond emotionally with people, with personal brands, and with your Primal Key™.

But what about online you when you’re marketing with New Media? How can you harness the momentum created by emotional anchoring and piggy-back off of words, quotes, images, or sounds that people are already familiar with?

It starts by understanding the simple truth of why emotional anchoring works in marketing. That is…

People buy what they like, and they like what they know

Familiarity breeds comfort. When you’re familiar with something or someone, you know what to expect. That makes things comfortable. More importantly (for marketing and sales purposes) familiarity and it’s offspring comfort both act to turn off the natural defense mechanism (skepticism) we all employ to protect ourselves.

Leveraging emotional anchors works so well in marketing because it accelerates familiarity and comfort. Its’ impact is instant, subconscious, and undeniable when it comes to boosting conversions.

Now, you may not be able to afford to pay Beyonce or Tiger Woods to appear in commercials for you. But you CAN leverage existing visual and auditory anchors, and using New Media Marketing — tie them to you, your product or your service. And you can do it in much easier, and much more cost effective way!

Here’s an example to get those Tribal Seduction mindset wheels spinning in your head.

A few good marketing ideas…

If I say "You can’t handle the truth!"… what movie do you immediatley think of?

"A Few Good Men." Right! It’s one of the most often quoted movie lines.

On the outside chance you haven’t actually seen the movie, you probably know what movie it came from and the context in which it was said. It’s familiar and it’s comfortable because it’s known.

The line was used in the climax of the movie. In what also was the most emotionally charged scene of the movie.

So where does New Media come in on this?And how does this help you with your marketing?

Well, lets take a look at a couple examples of how this famous movie quote was used in online videos. A few notes on what was done right. What could be done better. And what creative ideas you can come up with after looking at this mini-case study.

First the original clip

Let’s put things in context with the actual unedited clip from the movie.

 

OK, pretty powerful scene right? One of the most memorable in recent movie history.

So what can be done with this in New Media?

Follow along with me for a few minutes and find out.

Now, two examples: the good, the bad, and the "could be better"…

First; here’s funny adaptation that you’ll get a kick out of… especially if you’ve ever been attacked for being a good creative marketer. :)

Seduced by Social Media Sites, or In-Love With Your New Media Marketing Hub?

It’s a mistake I see far too many marketers and entrepreneurs making. They are being lured into seductive social media communities, wooed by and caught up in the passion of these interactive environments. They without the right strategy, they invest hours of their time forgetting that the only tangible benefit (their database of friends or followers) is controlled by a 3rd party who can change the rules of the game at any time.

A perfect example is how most users of Twitter have had a rude awakening over the last 48-hours or so. They awoke yesterday to find their “following” and “followers” lists slashed in half… or more! Hundreds and even thousands of contacts gone! POOF!

Twitter’s explanation:

new media marketing channel - twitter

Poor excuse, but who’s to blame?

Twitter’s “spam” excuse is a poor one. I and several other people I know on Twitter personally visit the page of each new Follower as new requests come in. So to see several hundred followers disappear and have Twitter say they “spammers” is clearly BS.

That’s to be expected and nothing to get upset about. It’ a danger you should expect. Twitter can do and say anything they want. And so can any other Social Network. Any of them can change the rules of the game whenever they want. They can arbitrarily put caps on the number of followers or friends you can have. Even delete people from your list at their whim.

See, the problem is not with Twitter, Facebook, or any other “free” Social Networking channel. The blame rests with you if you leave it to these services to have control over your contact list. Harsh, but true.

Some people learn the hard way that Social Networks are merely communication channels, not storage facilities. Let’s help you avoid any hard lessons in the future.

Protecting yourself and safe-guarding your hard work

So how do you protect yourself from the painful loss of contacts and connections you’ve worked hard to gain from Social Networks? It’s simple!

Keep the focus on your New Media Marketing Hub!

Social Networks are ONLY channels to leverage. They are NOT to be trusted with your most valuable asset; your contacts. They are conduits through which you attract and connect — but the core of all your efforts, the home base for all your Tribe – must be your Hub!

Your New Media Marketing Hub is where the ever-upwardly spiraling Tribal Seduction ™ Action Trinity (Attract-Connect-Convert) yields the greatest long-term results.

Your New Media Marketing Hub is the Alpha and the Omega of ALL that you do online. It is what will grow and protect your Tribe, your business, and your bank account. Your Hub is the home where your love, passion and primary attention belongs. Not out on the streets of the Social Networking communities.

What a New Media Marketing Hub IS and IS NOT

Before we take a look at the 5 simple steps to maximizing the profit impact of your New Media Marketing Hub, let’s get clear on what a hub is and is not.

  • A New Media Marketing Hub is NOT a blog.

    A blog helps with two parts of the Tribal Seduction? Action Triad: Attraction and Connection. Conversion cannot be done efficiently on a regular blog.

  • A New Media Marketing Hub is NOT a regular sales site.

    This type of site may be optimized for Conversions, but no matter how well written the copy, no matter how persuasive the videos, no matter how shocking the offer is – it will fail miserably when it comes to the Attraction and Connection of the Action Triad. (And in many cases, this type of site works against you no matter how you send people there, even from your blog.)

  • A New Media Marketing Hub IS a single site that combines Attraction, Connection, and Conversion.

    By having one central destination for your Tribe, the hard pitch can fall away. Instead, with a little bit of careful planning, application of Tribal Seduction principles and an understanding of human nature — you can strategically hide “pathways” to conversion that your Tribe will discover on their own.

These seemingly hidden pathways are a core component of Tribal Seduction mastery. When you leverage your Hub this way, people discover offerings on their own. And when you have automated persuasion triggers that are activated when they arrive on those particular pages – they own the decision. You are only there as the trusted provider, not hard-pushing salesperson.

When it’s done properly, no rapport is broken…
And even if you don’t make a sale, trust is actually increased!

More on this important Tribal Seduction principle in the future. But for now, suffice it to say that if you have people jumping around to different URLs, you will break rapport, lose sales… and most damaging of all – chip away trust!

How to keep a profitable perspective and make your “Hub” work for you

So how do you maximize the profit impact of your New Media Marketing Hub?

I’ve kept it real simple here and broken things down into 5 steps. Some require you to take action, other things happen auto-magically. And I’ve provided some images to help you envision how this would work for you.

Steps 1 and 2

In Step 1 you start at your hub with the creation of content that’s valuable to your Tribe. You choose a media format, post it and you’re off!

In Step 2, like the rays of the sun shining out across the sky; you begin to radiate additional sources of exposure for your new content. Some of these destinations you may have to actually take action yourself. (BLOGi360 members are lucky since most all of Step 2 is automated within the system as soon as they hit the “Save” button.)

New Media Marketing Hub - Step 1 & 2

Step 3

In Step 3 you (or one of your team) must

big brother on your own new media marketing site

Big Brother is good… when YOU are Big Brother on your own site. :)

Ever wonder exactly what visitors do when they land at your site? What they’re looking at and clicking on? How they’re moving around?

Knowing the answers is the only way you can fine tune your site layout, links, sign-up forms… anything that is interactive on your site! It’s the only way to refine your New Media Marketing skills and become a truly effective Tribal Seducer. And that takes a takes a little bit of Big-Brother-like watching.

When you’re marketing with New Media every single visitor counts.

Tracking visitor movement on your site, especially your home and sales pages, is essential for optimizing your profits. It’s true whether you have a regular blog or a BLOG i360 New Media Marketing site.

The Black Triad: Will These New Media Marketing Killers Bring You Down?

Marketplace Molester Alert

The scourge: the Black Triad

The innocent: consumers of all ages
The hero: you
Your role: Tribal Seducer
Your reward: a new, fun and profitable way to win the hearts, minds and pocketbooks of thousands of raving fans


Can’t see the video above? You need to
upgrade to the the lastest version of Adobe Flash It’s free.

As a business owner and marketer, there’s a very good possibility you’ve been wildly mislead, confused and digitally drugged by self-proclaimed marketing gurus who have brainwashed you into thinking that there’s only one way to market successfully.

The truth is; the way of the old internet marketing “ABC” (Always Be Closing) methodology is the path to financial suicide in today’s New Media Marketplace.

Today’s consumer is sick-and-tired of being assaulted by pathetic adolescent marketing that is clearly out for self-pleasure. The New Media marketplace with the power of Social Media has raised people’s expectations for rapport and lowered tolerance for marketplace molestation. (Isn’t that true for you?)

Your calling…

Your goal can no longer be only to “sell.” You must be guided by Profit Trinity™ Attract-Connect-Convert. And if you want to get and keep a Tribe of raving paying fans, they want to know you’re protecting them. That you are taking a stand and actively combating the Black Triad.

There is a new better way to sell today, without “selling.” the New economy and New Media marketplace demand it. Those who get it will reap the rewards no matter what the economy is doing.

This video is your invitation to join in defeating the Black Triad. And it’s your awakening to a new way to win the hearts, minds and pocketbooks of more raving PAYING fans than you can possibly imagine.

Die Black Triad! Die!

Marketplace Molesters, List Pimps, and Conversational Sociopaths… all must die a digital death.

    When you’ve run across any of the Black Triad, how did you feel?

    Will you do your part in ensuring their defeat?

    And equally as important, will you shun the path of the Black Triad, embrace the new way and be guided by the Profit Trinity™?

You can be sure it’ll be the deciding factor between your marketing generating a financial boom or bust. ;-)

Why Seduction Trumps Function (How Twitter is Staying King of the Hill)

Plurk, Jaiku, identi.ca. All New Media marketing channels. Services that are trying to topple the king of the micro-blogging hill — Twitter. But they’re all falling short. And understanding why they’re failing will help you attract, grow and protect your business — no matter whether you’re selling widgets in Peoria or downloads worldwide.

New Media marketing with Twitter

See — it’s not just the Twitter API or its coding that is insulating Twitter.

Nope! Far from it.

And it’s not all the cool apps that have been built around Twitter (like Summize, Twemes, Twhirl, etc.) They help solidify Twitter’s position. But they’re all actually a RESULT of Twitter’s leadership, not the cause of it.

The reason Twitter still stands as the top choice for the #1 choice of micro-blogging for New Media marketing goes much deeper than coding, apps or APIs.

It’s all about seduction…

Three Tribal Seduction™ principles keeping Twitter at #1

Let’s take a look at the real reasons for Twitter’s current ability to fend off all comers, and see how you can apply these lessons in your own business.

1) Fantasy (or “story”)

New Media marketing with the Twitter bird

Twitter, Tweets, the Twitter Fail Whale and the entire cast of cartoon-like characters in Twitterland — they all make using Twitter fun. It’s engaging and entertaining.

It’s a fantasy land where you can make up your own stories.

2) Insider language

If you use Twitter you’ve probably grown accustomed to using terminology like Twemes, TwitCast, TwitAholic, follow, @, DM’s, and more.

It’s an environment we can escape into using a language that “outsiders” just don’t understand. That’s key in Tribal Seduction for the same reason it’s key to the power of cults. It makes members of the Tribe

Freedom OF and Freedom FROM – What Will You Do With Your Freedom?

New Media Marketing - independence day

Freedom. What does it mean to you?

Your answer can mean the difference between success, failure, or the hellish purgatory of mediocrity that lies between.

For me, as I look out at the Hawaiian blue Pacific Ocean, preparing to head down to the beach with Deb and the dogs — answering what freedom is — that’s simple. At least when it comes to the freedom America was founded on.

It means being free OF (excessive gov’t control) as much as it’s freedom FROM (laws and rights afforded by our Constitution.)

It’s the ability to live life, under liberty & for the pursuit of happiness. Something that as an active entrepreneur since age 12, I’m passionate about.

America is the greatest country on earth. Just think about how many souls around the world for the last 232 years have fought, dreamt, prayed, and given up everything to one day have the privilege to enjoy the same basic freedoms afforded to us. Likewise, ponder how many men and women have fought and died to protect our freedom.

Unlimited opportunity…

There is unlimited opportunity here in the U.S., no matter what the mainstream media & political demagogs try to feed us in hypnotic soundbites.

Yes! Unlimited opportunity — as BIG as you can dream.

But therein lies the danger of today. This country is only as great as the dreams of its people — NOT its politicians.

Freedom is YOUR power…

Instead of looking to
