How to reach the senior entrepreneur Seniorpreneur 13 9 hoursSteve (2611): @Seniorpreneur Negative, negative ... to succeed you are going to need to make things happen. Instead of looking at roadblocks and thinking I need Government help to do this as I need massive funds ... look for ways you can do things and grow your business organically. Heck set up a gofundme account and see if the seniors themselves will fund your startup ... As to seniors needing to be retrained ... they should be doing things that draw on...

Content marketing works because... Steve 9 5 daysSteve (2611): Why do people come to me? who knows... lol In the above example, I simply mentioned to the prospect that if I was this keen and pushy to get his business and solve his problems... how much more pushy would I be to ensure I followed through and delivered. I then asked for the order and got it. In the Gulf war... when the US when into Iraq and kicked Saddam out ... I actually sold three websites to businesses in Iraq who wanted to sell to the US...
Where 50+ generation reads and writes Belew 5 6 daystienny (469): @Belew @Steve Currently, I am working a temporary job which is far from my house. So I have to wake up early and rushing home late at home. Even I miss interacting with both of you and everyone too. I haven't been that well. Lack of sleep thus increases migraine occurrences. I also feel not fitting in the current job though I like my colleagues.

Helping Senior w/ Personal Transportation Bobbystef65 5 8 daysBobbystef65 (4): It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm also a Seton Hall Alum class of '87. Where have the years gone?? I'm a former NYS Parole officer and that in itself was one hell of a life. I enjoy helping others who truly need the help but even trying to build a somewhat successful business doing that is pretty frustrating. Word of mouth is key. So, I'm here and look forward to hearing from you. Take care in the mean time...

Any opinions on Growth Driven Design(GDD)? lunar_ranger 10 10 daysRev (2422): Sometimes people just look for fancy names for what most of us call "busy work". If we can define it and talk/write about it and keep 10,000 people busy doing it, it must be a career, right?
Alone 9-day Working Retreat Best Practices Belew 5 11 dayslunar_ranger (451): If you had 9 full days when you could do anything you want - think working retreat: [Assumption: NO INTERNET] 1. What would you do? Think, write, read, do a little exercise, explore, make more memories than take pictures. 2. What would you write? I would start writing my thoughts down, instead of structuring them when I have to justify my actions. 3. What would you read? I would read some philosophy and self-help books that have been anchoring...

For bloggers who like writing about software rcayeras 5 13 daysrcayeras (322): I'm sharing ad ad that I saw. I'm not the one looking for the blogger. I sometimes post them when I see something - well, it's not for me, but I bet someone on this forum can do it. These ads are best responded to as soon as possible - they tend to make decisions quickly. My experience with these postings - you're talking to the hiring manager, who could be a Director or higher. As far as how to respond, what information to provide - it's a...
entertainment blogs - are they effective? rcayeras 6 13 daysrcayeras (322): Thanks for the feedback - and for the most part, agreement. If this client is trying to get more traffic to their site that generates revenue - I doubt this will work. These extra stories have no relationship to what they do. I consider my response one of the best/worst examples of these entertaining blogs. I didn't care about the company that posted it or had any inspiration to look into what they do -- instead, I watched more ElectroBoom...

Simple Ways to Get LinkedIn Connections bdaoust 64 1 monthSteve (2611): @dmortaz you need to work out if his LinkedIn connections are your target audience otherwise you'll just annoy them...

Writing a post as suggested is a great idea...

It may be one big topic with many subtopics - it may be a few key topics.. Of course, the challenge is that who you thought was ideal audience may turn out to very different..

Where Accountants Can Get Started Online weaverjs 6 1 monthRev (2422): @weaverjs Bill and Steve know their stuff. You won't be far off the mark if you apply some of their advice. I often speak of what I call the Four-Squared content marketing approach. It marries two four-point concepts, ie: 4x4 or 4². The first is my engineering approach, or IEEE: Inform Educate Entertain Engage and the second is my Four Y's of Success: Quality Frequency Regularity Longevity If you apply IEEE and, in doing so, provide...

There you can connect with individuals who are working in that field, and they'd be the best source of practical advice. A quick glance shows 761 groups for marketing research in LinkedIn.

It doesn't mean you will end up doing that, but it is a good place to start. Whatever you do, if you are going to build something online, you want a solid foundation and you want it as early as possible. - domain name. It is better to choose wrong than not to choose at all. - hosting. You want good hosting that lets YOU build YOUR business YOUR...

What would you like to write a book about? Belew 15 1 monthtienny (469): I realise that I learn easier through doing, people and work experiences than textbook. Normally, I read part of the textbook when needed. Or else I will fall asleep. People tend to think I am an academic person. Actually I learn by doing experiments and repetitive doing.
