Storms come and storms go.

The other night a storm came through, the first real one of the summer. The lightning flashed and the thunder boomed. I shut down all my computers to wait it out. The kids were excited to see nature put on a show.
It reminded me that life happens around me even if I don't do a thing.
The Internet grows every day. How can we make a difference? After all we are just one person. You can make a difference. Studies have shown that normal people have about 500 people in their world. If you are working with the public there could be thousands. Facebook has a measurement called "reach". That how many people do all of you fans have. A fan is someone that likes a page on Facebook.
With Linked in they call it your network. How many people can you touch witha post or comment you make?
The other day I looked on my LinkedIn page and saw that I have under 500 contacts but I have over 2 million in my network. What does that mean?
When I post something to LinkedIn it goes on all of my contacts pages and it would then be possible for all if their contacts to see it. Facebook offers the same thing. But with a possible reach of many more. I am now working with both Facebook and Google directly learning how to get the most from a little. They both make their money from Advertising so they want you to spend big. But you don't have to. You can take you existing budget and move it to on line for just one or two months. See what it does for you. With online you can track it all down to the click. You know how you money is working for you.
One work of warning! Don't spend a dime unless your website is ready to convert the new visitors to clients or Contacts. It is worth a call to me to get more info. Or you can come to our Monday night workshop at Fuel coffee shop in Great Barrington from 5-7 starting next week on June 4th.
Life will past you by. So get up and make a difference in your life and business.
Talk to you soon.
Have a peaceful day.
