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.

MySpace Marketing Guide, Episode 02: Branding yourself with a custom URL on MySpace

Are you branded on MySpace yet?

If you’re not quite clear on, “What is a brand?”, or how to brand yourself on MySpace – you’re at the right place! In this Episode, Coach Deb walks Coach Kathleen through the process of branding yourself on MySpace.

Here’s where you’ll get to eavesdrop on a “live” coaching session as we walk her through the process of “branding yourself on MySpace” – and you’ll even see her persevere through challenges that come up.

Creating your custom URL on MySpace is one of the most critical steps to take immediately after you sign up for a new MySpace profile.

WARNING about MySpace:
Once you create your custom URL on MySpace, you can NEVER change it. So you want to think long and hard about what you want Your Brand to be on MySpace, because it will be what people remember you by.

In addition to the specific “how to create a custom URL on MySpace” I also gave her over a dozen coaching tips throughout the two videos on what to do, and what NOT to do when branding yourself on MySpace – and how to get through the challenges that come up.

Enjoy this episode – it’s broken up into a TWO-PARTER!
Here is the first part of this episode (EPI 02 A) hosted by YouTube
8min each
(part 02 B is listed at the top in the podcast player screen)

Here are a few tips Coach Deb shared with her coaching client in this episode:

  • Branding tips – how to think in terms of benefits for your clients
  • Branding tips – how to discover your brand
  • Branding tips – how to incorporate your business tag line into your brand on MySpace
  • MySpace tips – how to get the perfect name for yourself – despite the fact that over 175 million names are already taken!
  • MySpace Tips on how to LOCK in your brand so no one else can pose as YOU
  • MySpace Tips on how to create a URL name
  • You’ll learn why it’s critical to set up your brand and profile on MySpace sooner rather than later

  • MySpace Organizational Tips to save yourself a TON of time in the future as your profile develops
  • NOTE:
    This episode was delivered via LIVE Broadcast via HelloWorld TV – so you’ll see us multi-tasking throughout, sometimes talking to our fans LIVE in the laptop. Just wanted to let ya’ know – we’re NOT crazy – we do NOT just talk to our laptops unless there is actually somebody THERE looking right back at us. Okay?

    Coach Deb
    AKA: The Motivation MD on MySpace

    * NOTE – RE: The Organizational Table referenced in this video — Unless otherwise requested heavily here in the comments section by MySpace fans to upload that tool to this post – the pdf will be uploaded to the Member’s section of The Business Owner’s Coaching Club for VIP coaching clients of RPM Success Group Inc.

    Why Did We Drop AdvancedBusinessBlogging.com?

    OK, from all the feedback we’ve gotten from subscribers and clients — the new site name Tribal Seduction is a hit! And so is the focus on identifying, tracking, gathering, and profiting from Tribes within the New Media Marketplace.

    Yet some people have been asking why we decided to not just take up the same topic over at Advanced Business Blogging. Well, to be perfectly honest, one big reason is that we feel the site has run it’s course.

    The short story is that it just didn’t meet our long term strategy for helping business owners, marketers, and sales professionals like you really master the New Media Marketplace.

    More specifically though, there are MAJOR advancements we wanted to make for you like:

      1. Every week some of the videos, podcasts, and posts here at Tribal Seduction will be part of our next book. We needed a site where members of the TS Tribe could actually be part of the book.

      2. We have a team of weekly guest contributors (all experts in areas of mass persuasion) lined up for Tribal Seduction. Plus regular contributors as well, “knights of the round table” you might say. Advanced Business Blogging was too closely brand associated with Deb and I personally.

      3. Advanced Business Blogging was way too restrictive of a site name. Sure there are many people interested in learning about blogging for business. But our coaching, consulting, and speaking engagements over the last 18-months have all been focused on helping business people develop complete “Mortar and New Media Marketing strategies.”

      The response to that unique blending of persuasion with technology has been very well received. If we’re going to help as many business people as we want, the entire Web experience needed to be upgraded.

      4. We want to expand on the New Media Marketing Matrix we reveal in the popular Pushbutton Persuasion course. That exposition would be ‘lost’ on Advanced Business Blogging.

      5. Our research and work with offline businesses and politicians has shown that there is an unbelievable potential for using New Media channels as a way to capitalize on the Tribal Marketplace. The ability to gather, serve, and seduce Tribes of hungry people is where the true wealth and power is. Tribes, Tribal Seduction, and the role of courtier must be the focus.

      6. A lot of the hype you hear about blogs, podcasts, and social networks really needs to be dragged into the light of reality. Helping business people profitably bask in this light would be hindered by a name like “Advanced Business Blogging.” It would seem hypocritical to expose the facts about blogging dangerous to business people there. Plus, the very people we are helping might likely be turned off by such a site name.

      7. Blogging (by technical terms) for business, no matter how “advanced,” seems like a lot of work to business people. With the release of our New Media Marketing system, BLOG i360, we needed a new platform to show how well it compliments Tribal Seduction strategies. After all — it’s the ONLY Web site that works FOR you!

      Associating BLOG i360 with Advanced Business Blogging would be like trying to associate a Gulfstream 550 with a lawn-mower-engine powered Prius. Both will get you across the country. But the Gulfstream does it in style. And it gets you to your destination in a tiny fraction of the time that the Prius could ever hope to achieve.

    I could go on, but you get the idea. :-D

    Bottom line is this…

    If you are migrating over from Advanced Business Blogging, you’re going to feel right at home. You may feel a little stretched at first with some of the strategies covered here. But you’ll settle in quickly.

    If you’re just being introduced to our team and these powerful strategies, joining the TS Tribe will bring you up to speed real quick!

    In both cases — you are going to be simply blown away by the advantage you gain over your competitors.

    With each new article, podcast, and video you’ll agree that this Web site is one of the most innovative and ground breaking expositions of online influence, persuasion, and seduction of the masses you will ever see!

    From simple, practical, hands-on coaching; to strategic analysis and guidance — it all starts full speed next week! ;-)
