Database Tip

It's such a pity. I find most all businesses I survey for my speaking engagements don't keep a database. So how can they market? All is not lost I suggest. Their accounting programs have client data. For example in xero you can group your customers (categorise them) and also create smart lists (who bought what, when; last time purchased etc). These can be exported so you can do personalised email merge using MS Office or your email distribution service. You can also keep prospect information from quotes you did.

Communication Tip: Get A Better Response.

Ask straightforward questions that cover one topic at a time. When you ask a two-part question, people tend to either answer the second part only or only the part they were interested in or felt safe with. Ask one question at a time!

How to Make YouTube Useful Inside Your Business

You normally think of YouTube for entertainment, sales, marketing videos. But what about internal use?  YouTube can be remarkably useful for so many areas of a business. Sales, Human Resources, IT, Customer Service, Marketing, Finance.  Videos don’t have to be made public and why not let Google pay for the hosting/bandwidth and simple editing software tools?

Use it for: training; how-to; procedures; software tips; executive messages; demos; role playing; induction? This is just a beginning top of mind list. 
When you upload the videos, the can be set as:

  • Private - only people you designate can view (maximum 50) (logging in by email address)
  • Unlisted. Anyone you give the link to can view.

A primary benefit is the simplicity of uploading videos - via computer or your smartphone.  You can create a company channel or department channels, customising it with your company branding, logos, colours.  Alternatively have one company channel and aategorise yourcontent into playlistsIf you plan on producing more than a few videos or for different departments.

Finally, you can gain insights from the Creator Studio Dashboard. Video views, comments, likes and watch times. To get to it, sign into YouTube, click on your channel icon in the top right and select Creator Studio > Dashboard
