This is day two of my latest business marketing plan. The overall goal is to eventually have a number of products that I can market off all my online properties and for live seminars. The initial goal is to find out what the most requested thing I do, based on a variety of options, is what the masses want.
I have to admit that in a way I’m proud of myself. After all, though it’s a lie saying it’s easy doing what I’ve been doing, the one thing it afforded me was marketing to one particular niche… even if the folks in that niche really didn’t want to talk to me.
That’s a bit of honesty I finally had to overcome in order to truly branch out into other things. While it’s true that most of the posts on this blog have been related to leadership over the years, I haven’t really marketed anything but health care and possibly writing in the longest time; certainly not on this blog.
Just to mention this, I’ve created other products in the past. There are a few on the main page of this blog, which you can see a few of over there on the left. A few other things I’ve created include:
Mitchell Employee Evaluation Module – a system that will help you hire the type of person you’re looking for based on real criteria instead of just how educated someone might be
Mitchell Manager Training Program – a 5-part course for training new managers that I created almost 10 years ago
Social Media, SEO & Your Business – a webinar on how to communicate with others on social media and optimizing one’s website for business purposes
I’m not a novice at creating things. I’ll admit that my live presentations have a lot more content and go into a lot more detail. However, since I just discovered Udemy, which allows for longer and more complicated training programs, I’ve been thinking about trying that for a few things.
In any case, I’m trying to branch out instead of being a one-trick pony. This is part of the “life you choose to live” side of life that I’m shooting for. I’m not giving up health care finance, and I’m certainly not giving up on leadership. I’m just branching out more, working on the entrepreneur side of things while trying to increase my sphere of influence; heck, one of these days I’m going to make a top 50 list that’s going to make me rich and famous (a reference to Kermit the Frog’s appeal to Orson Welles in the very first Muppet movie; I had hoped to add that clip here but it doesn’t seem to be on YouTube; oh well…)!
Now, the topics…
Below are 9 categories of things I’m very proficient in; yes, someone can actually be good at more than one thing. Under a couple of them, I’ve broken the category down slightly further than the main category.
The first thing I need is for you to pick one thing; one choice per person. You can leave your request on the blog, or you can send me an email to mitch@imjustsharing.
The second thing I need is for you to pick how you’d like the training delivered to you. One of these I’ve put in there in case local folks participate in amazing numbers; gotta have hope right? Or, if you believe you’d able to pull something together that could get me to come to where you are and get paid for it… even better.
The reward? Other than what I promise will be a top flight lesson, the first idea that has five people select it and the way it’s delivered, I’ll pick 1 person from that group to receive that training for free. If I get 20 people eventually under that same selection, I’ll give away 2 more free trainings.
At some point, if I don’t reach an agreed upon number, I’ll probably take the top 3 and run this again. As I said, I’m putting this out on 4 blogs, and since each blog addresses something different, you might think that picking something on this blog would be a snap… but you just never know… not everything below is something that’s covered on this blog. Who knows, some of you might learn something new about me from the choices below
These are the areas you have to select from (categories are underlined):
Hospital Revenue Cycle
Medical Billing techniques
Understanding Charge Master
Understanding the Revenue Cycle
How to provide good customer service
Training others to be good at customer service
How to motivate yourself
Being A Better Leader
Training Others To Be Leaders
blogging for money
article writing for others
benefits and dangers of social media
social media marketing tips
YouTube & video basics
Now, method of delivery:
1 on 1 training (in person, Skype, Google Hangout, phone)
Remember, only one per person. If you mention more than one, you have to tell me which one is first. You don’t even have to promise me you’ll buy; I just want to know which one you find the most important to you, and how you’d prefer it to be delivered.
I thank everyone in advance for participating and sharing this post, or any other post from this week, or any of my other posts from any of my other blogs regarding this. I really appreciate all your help. And, just so you know, business as usual again come Friday.
