Motivation for Success

When we talk about motivation for success it can come from anywhere.  From friends, co-workers, an inspiring article or from your family.

Being an alum of Ferris State University, it was a college when I was there, I follow their feeds when this article sparked this motivation for success blog post.

The article can be found at http://footballmatters.org/ferris-state-qb-jason-vander-laan-has-carved-a-potential-path-to-the-nfl-with-a-little-help-from-his-trendsetting-sisters/

and deals with the Ferris State Quarterback Jason Vander-Laan and his successes.  What struck me that his motivation to success was inspired by his sisters.  According to the Football Matters article Jason states, “All throughout high school, both of my sisters had 4.0 grade-point averages,” Vander Laan said. “So they kind of set the bar incredibly high. I was always trying to do as good as them.”

What also struck me was the article was not about ‘me’.  It was about how his motivation for success came from his family and the hundred other players on the team.  In business and in life we have to carve our own motivation to success.  What does this look like to you?  What are you doing to better yourself and others.  In a recent conversation with a client he talked about how ‘doing the right thing’ treating people with respect’ and trusting in God has made his success.  For him, yes success has its financial rewards but he was most proud on how he treated others and how his motivation for success was about others, not himself.  Side note, I really enjoy and love my customers.

There are options in marketing your business and one is using Facebook Page as your website.  From Facebook, “Facebook can help you reach all the people who matter most to your business.”  Recently DW Video has been ask to set up a couple facebook pages for clients that wanted to use their page as their website.  When using Facebook Page as your website here is what we did and it is really easy.

First get your domain name.  For the Morley Celebration on the Pond we purchased: celebrationonthepond.com and for KJM Productions: kjmproductions.us

Facebook provides a custom web address as well – “When you set up your Page, you can request a web address like “facebook.com/yourgreatcompany,” which makes it easy to find. To maximize the impact, include this address on your business card, website and other marketing materials.”

Morley Celebration on the Pond

Visit http://www.celebrationonthepond.com

In both of these cases we used GoDaddy for obtaining our domain name.  Went into each account and instread of direction the domain name to point to web host.  We created a ‘forward’ to point to the custom URL on facebook.

For example:  celebrationonthepond.com points to https://www.facebook.com/MorleyCelebrationOnThePond and kjmproductions.us points to https://www.facebook.com/kjmproductions.

Now these customers can put their personalized website address on their business card.

Now it is important to work the page. Be authentic, Be responsive, Be consistent, Do what works and based on your budget, Make successful posts into successful promotions.

YouTube Channel for Michigan Businesses

Using a personal YouTube Channel to tell and share your stories of Michigan Businesses, Organizations and Non-Profits.  According to YouTubePlaylists should be an essential part of your channel strategy. Not only do they increase watch-time, they create another asset that will appear in search results and in Suggested Videos. You can create playlists using your own videos, other videos, or a combination of both.”

Telling and sharing your businesses story needs to take a series of videos, utilizing playlists, proper keywords… it takes a plan.  A plan that takes time to produce, embed and track.

Video SEO is work in progress.  There are many factors that go into ranking. Organic SEO  (search engine optimization) is the phrase used to describe processes to obtain a natural placement on organic search engine results pages according to WeboPedia.  Meaning not having to pay for ads on Google, Facebook or YouTube.  Depending on your keyword and the competition for those keywords, the geographic area you are targeting will depend on how long and IF/When your video ranks.

From the Google search our video was on page two within 24 hours.  NOTE: This was from the video section of the search not the main search.  More work needs to be done to move that ranking. Remember in the beginning of this article when I mentioned it was work in process.  Now the work begins.
