I Am an Intern Filling in for the Regular Blogger and I am Determined

To Get to the Bottom of the Question

“What is the most impactful way to market your journey, positivity or negativity?”

Thankfully, I am not alone when it comes to exploring this puzzle. How? Because three other interns like I am are sitting in for the usual writers at various Blog Coalition blogs. These websites are “How to Do Online Marketing,” How to Get New Customers” and even “USA Make a Difference.”

Your Story is Yours

You already have what you need: your story!

Market Your Journey

Your story is a pivotal piece of marketing your journey.  It involves the ever important craft of using your copywriting skills (writing promotional content) on the topic as well.

Some People will be able to Relate to Your Story

Human beings love stories because in part the fact that they can relate another person’s story to their own.

If You are an Author, Leverage it

For you authors out there this process is going to be a lot easier because you are likely already familiar with the classic story structure.

Let Others Know About What Your World Was Like Pre-Problem

One of the first things to do in telling a story is to show the context of desire in your world before bad things happen. This is the establish what life was like before the problem reared its ugly head.

Enter a Bad Thing (Problem)

Then suddenly a bad thing happens to stir up the story and provide challenges. What is the bad thing in your story? It is the major problem of your tale that you came up against and later discovered a solution for as you can hint toward now.

Dig Deeply into What is Frightening and Seemingly Hopeless

We are now to the point of us experiencing the first attempt at a solution, but nothing works. Things just keep getting worse and worse as the very hope for a solution is squashed.

Coming Up with a Solution

But somehow during all this pain we stumble upon a solution that up until this point has been a secret, but with the help of a mentor and lots of hard work, we develop the solution to the problem.

Now Things are Better Than Ever

Now you find the ideal thing needed to make the difference and get on the track to success, making things even better than they were in the beginning because now a solution is known.

What is Unique About Your Experience?

Now of course when you are telling your story you must have some reason for why you are able to come up with a solution. Usually this means that you have unique expertise or experience that allows you to develop a key to escape the pain.

Consider involving a Mentor

Now for those of you who do not have the confidence in your ability or are not really feeling that you are an expert at anything, you can change up your storytelling a bit to give the mentor who appears in your life be the master instead. He or she provides the path for you to travel on.

How to Motivate Your Expert

This can mean quite literally bringing in an expert problem solver interview. The goal of uncovering your personal story is to use it on all your channels, from social media or maybe even offering a product that solves a certain demographic’s problem. Now is the time to get the cooperation of an expert in your industry if you do not consider yourself to be the expert. Often you can connect with this individual via email offering them some free publicity in the form of them being featured in you site or other incentive.

Consider Sharing

If you are developing and plan to sell a learning product, if your designated expert is hesitant at first to participate, you might consider offering that person a percentage of your sales or giving her or him a fee. Also, don’t forget to get this individual to sign a release. This release will describe in detail the arrangement you have with this person..

Your Expert will Appreciate the Publicity

Again, the exciting thing that can appeal to your expert is that in the product or service marketing process, she or he will receive increased visibility. Together you and your expert will help others solve a serious problem..

Put Yourself into the Position

Think about it, if you wanted to hire an expert to help you with a problem, would not you be impressed by the fact this person is seemingly so good at what they do that they were brought in to speak as an expert in an online endeavor?

Did You Learn by Doing?

A great way to learn is to learn by doing. If you are a motivated person this can work for you. Especially if you throw yourself into a position where you must come up with solutions to survive. This is what we have experienced. We knew that unless we came up with a way to support ourselves with our business, we would be without an income to live.

Been There Done That? You have Special Value!

Since you have faced your business and/or artistic problems and solved them, you are now able to help others solve their challenges.

Your Talent and Insights

If you are looking at finding a value proposition if you are an expert, you need not look any further than you own unique take on solving the problem. If you are working with an expert, the same goes for leveraging their talents and insights.

Learning Outcome

Educators talk about a “learning outcome.” This is being clear on both the problem and what the user will learn in terms of them being exposed to your lessons and teaching processes.

How to Make Your Course More Desirable

And in this process do not forget who you are. What you uniquely bring to the table because of your personality and experience is valuable. It becomes the edge that you have on the competition. No one should be able to take the real “you” out of the proposition. Be sure to give into what is unique about you and the solving of this problem. If done authentically it will make your course more desirable if you are putting together a learning product.

Analyze Your Strengths

Ultimately it comes down to figuring out what your strengths are as a solution provider and emphasizing them. Do not underestimate your unique skills and approach. Put your interpretation of the way to solve the problem up front and center. This means that your course will appeal to those who can relate to who you are and your take on things.

Each Creator will Make a Different and Unique Course

It is critical to realize that depending on who the person is and the sum of their experiences, they will make a totally different course on the exact same subject! Again, the neat thing about this is that who you are is going to appeal to some people over others. Your unique perspective will attract those who can relate to that perspective.

Do not Be Intimidated by Other Learning Experiences on the Market

The fact is that there are a lot of people out there who are teaching courses on your topic. Do not be dissuaded because of this. Remember that your unique story and set of experiences put you in the running to attract those like you who can relate to you but do not necessarily have the knowledge that you have (or your expert does) in this area.

Yianni Stamas Briefly Speaks about National Christmas Movie Marathon Day and Related Topics

Why the 23rd of December?

With balloons in hand, each one representing  one of your interests. Today is the day to think about this and how you will draw from your own life to promote yourself and your products and services in the New Year.

Market Your Journey

Our friends at “Market Your Journey .com” have a special interest in what is celebrated on this day (every December 23rd), which is “National Christmas Movie Marathon Day.” It is not that those marketing their journey (as a way to build visibility) want to gorge on Yuletide flicks, it’s that they believe the 23rd of December is an important turning point in one’s journey. This is because it happens approximately a week before arriving at January 1st so it is a way to set a landmark for the year to come. And of course you can still binge on this, National Christmas Movie Marathon, and might even get some ideas for refining your plans for the upcoming year.

Matching Up Your Resolutions

Rather than jump into 2021 as your time to figure out your resolutions for the new year wouldn’t you rather do them now so you have time to sift through them and really fine tune what your strategy is? We too agree with this. I know that for me I have resolutions both in terms of career as well as family and friends. The two are often different but I seek to match them up if possible.

What Does 2021 Hold for You?

One of my resolutions for 2020 was to do more blog guest spots through the Blog Coalition and have been staying true to this mission. And example is the post you are reading right now which is one of several that I have done this year both with my name on them and sometimes not. Do you have a clear picture of what 2021 will have for you? This is a good time to nail it down and start processing it.

The Internet Can Be Your Journal

As we all know, it is easy to forget your resolutions as time progresses which is why you may want to write about it in your diary if you have one. For me, the internet is kind of like my journal where I commit ideas to cyber pages as a way of reminding myself throughout the year of what I am striving to accomplish.

History

When in high school (for the two years I was in high school) I used to joke about starting my own religion and even wrote and staged a magic play about it that integrated tricks with a storyline. Interestingly enough, many of the holidays that we celebrate today were apparently taken from pagan days of worship that were given a makeover to fit in. These holiday celebrations include Halloween, Easter and yes, Christmas. Have you ever thought of starting your own religion? Or do you have new resolutions?

This is What We Really Mean by “Market Your Journey”

All right. Before we start, did you bring your water?

Okay. We see you got your agua.  Good choice. New a few words about what “Market Your Journey” really means. I means taking what you are experiencing and learning into products and services. You know you can do this. There is nothing wrong with making some money and there is a great deal of this kind of stuff that is doing really well. You can do it also. Just take what you know and put it on paper, or on camera, or both, or something else. Whatever the medium is that you select, it’s time now to stop just learning, just diary-ing and so on. You’ve put your time in and now it is your shot at uncovering the treasure trove. We’re not telling you to not divorce your connection to the material world. Do that on Monday, but then on Tuesday cash it in!

Your Journey as a Home Business Achiever

We consider ourselves to be Home Business Achievers as well as consider YOU to be one. That is because you have worked awfully hard and continue to work hard but are not achieving anything that looks like progress to you. Wonder if there was a way to put all this effort into something slightly different that offers you awards that you earn?

Does that sound good? You may be ambivalent about it, but that is okay. We just want to get to know you better and have put together some material we think you owe it to yourself to look over.

If in the end you can find anything you can relate to, then it was worth reading. Plus, the more you know about yourself now, the more you will be open to the chilling truth and want to change without really changing, much regarding who you are versus who you want to be.

Monetize Your Life

You have YOUR world in the palm of YOUR hands!

This blog was created help people “Market their Journey” or another way of putting it per my brother is to “Monetize Your Life.” He actually pointed out to me that in many ways they were one and the same, and I have to agree.

The concept, as we’ve described in past posts is to take everything that happens to you as well as what you make happen, and put it to work for you by figuring out a commercial way to sell it. This is true in many ways of artists. They experience something and then make it into a work of art that is sold.

But the spectrum of the concept can be larger than that. What are the problem you have that consumers do? Monetize your life and make a product that helps. You notice an issue in today’s world that are meaningful to other people. Monetize you life by making a film about it. Or, you don’t have much to say in a blog post. Monetize your life by writing about monetizing your life!

What Do We Mean by “Market your Journey?”

We’ve advanced pretty far in terms of the distance of journeys, but are we any closer to the truth of illusion?!

Marketer Magician Learns from Einstein

We’ve done our best up to this point to through various posts explain what the term “Market Your Journey” means to us. But if Marketer Magician can explain “Imagination,” then we surely can do the same with “Market Your Journey.” Let’s start with the Einstein quote that Marketer Magician used to take a look at the value of imagination:

Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world. – Albert Einstein.

What Can We Latch on to as an Einstein Takeaway?

This excerpt also is of importance to understanding the idea of Market Your Journey. Why? Because you need imagination when looking at how to market YOUR journey. People sometimes think that imaginary worlds are less than truthful than so called “Real Worlds.” Both worlds are linked in one way or another to truth and illusion. And as Marketer Magician likes to discuss, both are “real” in their own way.

What does the have to Do with Being Able to Market Your Journey?

The goal is to know your truth, but for some it isn’t bad living in denial and holding on tight to illusion. A lot of these folks live in Southern California. Hey, who are we to talk, resisting what is “real” has for years been our favorite hobby!
