A Question, Please

I have had a fantastic week. It’s the kind of week where I get a lot of work done and raised even more questions. It seems as though Friday’s are turning into ‘ask my friends’ day. With your permission, I’ll tell you a little of what I am doing, and I would like to ask you a question that you may be able to help with.

I am working on my blog daily. I also just put two gigs on Fiverr and a course on Thinkific. I am also updating my life and motivational coaching skills. Now, my question comes in the form of marketing.

I’m trying to figure out a form of marketing that does not cost an arm and leg. Also, I would like to have marketing that does not cause my friends and acquaintances to turn the corner as soon as they see me, to avoid feeling I am putting the touch on them to purchase something. I know many of my friends and acquaintances would appreciate not having to ignore me.

I know many who read my blog, have blogs and/or businesses of their own. So here’s my question:

What do you find as the most efficient and most economical way of marketing?

I don’t wish to steal any trade secrets or any proprietary information. If you do have a way that works well for you, and you would like to share it, I would be very interested.

Thank you for allowing the question. Thank you in advance for your ideas and comments.

Have a great weekend.

A Question?

Today I would like to ask a question.

I have found that most of my adult life I have been coaching people. In the Air Force, in manufacturing, helping people to find jobs, and even now as I write books and develop courses. I have done this over and over again, although definitely, each situation is different, with its own nuances.

I actually like coaching and helping people. Not for my own enjoyment, instead to help them. The real thrill is when I see the light of understanding click on in their eyes. It is the moment when something they’ve been trying to figure out comes to full knowledge.

I don’t want you to think that knowledge is a one-way street. I learn as much from my students and clients as they learn from me. I believe if I leave the classroom, work, or coaching situation without learning something new, I have really not done my job right. Because whenever two human beings collaborate, both should grow.

My question is a simple one. In the world that has more and more social media and yet less and less person-to-person collaboration, do you think that a service where someone can call up and talk to you for 20 minutes or a half hour and ask a question or two would be a viable service to offer?

This is just a thought, based on observation and viewpoints of what the worldview looks like today. Please send me a comment and let me know your thoughts.

Have a great day, and thanks for reading the blog and commenting on the question.
