  • It takes time and persistence to grow a readers base. You need to answer people question and the rest will fall into place. Remember time is everything so don’t rush it.

  • Excellent! I’ll see you there!

  • PhilMershon

    Good point, Antonio. Its kind of like the power of compounding interest. You don’t see many results in the early years, but if you contribute daily or monthly you will see major results in 5, 10 or 30 years. The same principle is at work in social relationships. Of course, the other key is quality investments, right?!

  • PhilMershon

    See you then!

  • Terry Babij

    Sounds like this will be a Contant Rich Broadcast. I have to be listen in!

  • PhilMershon

    I don’t think you’ll want to miss this, Terry. Thanks!

    Hoping this will be archived.  Have to leave for an hour to get to a meeting during this time but looks to be a great program.  Thanks for providing!

  • Rockstars one and all!  

  • Jessica – It will not.  It is a live event and will not be recorded….  Sorry

    Not recoreded? So very sad for people who have day jobs and are trying to launch a business on the side.
    Would you please reconsider?

  • Looking forward to this! Anything Michael and Mari are in, I’m in!

  • You can work your tush off and do all the right things. However if your business market demographic isn’t the right profile, all you do is talk to an empty room. You just cannot actively engage the older demographic in sufficient quantities to make it worthwhile (anywhere else but linkedin maybe).

  • Ilovenazarene

    I agree with Maxine, I do work a day job and also tying to build a business on the side.  Even if all I get is the recorded message, it will be better than nothing.

  • Raquel

    Hi Michael, this is really great. Albeit on the other side of the Atlantic I do look forward to join !
    Thanks a lot for this.

  • PhilMershon

    It will definitely be worth attending.

  • PhilMershon

    See you there!

  • PhilMershon

    Perhaps someone would be willing to take good notes and write up some of the key takeaways. I know there will be some great sharable content delivered!

  • PhilMershon

    You may be surprised how many “seniors” are online. You just have to find out what they are doing. Someone probably has research on this to share, but I suspect they are on Facebook to follow their grandchildren and to play games (believe it or not). Posting pictures would be big. That said, the point of content and relationship marketing is not to find the right social media tool, but to find the best way to give your fans what they’re looking for. Keep asking questions and you’ll find the right answers.

  • PhilMershon

    We tried to time this so that we could make it possible for people in Asia, Europe and the Americas to participate. Tough to find that exact perfect time slot! Glad you’re willing to stay up for it! Grab some coffee and be ready to ask some questions! 🙂

  • Hi Michael, this is going to be a great interview and looking forward to participate and i wonder if we can get the recorded one of this event ,it will be of more help. Please try to consider my request. 

  • Great ! 

  • Hotshotav

    If they can be recorded and therefore available to folks like us in South Africa, it would be nice. We don’t always have the time to take part in live seminars, because of the time difference. Just a thought. Use it, don’t use it.

  • Amnuai Beckenham

    Hello Phil. Will it be possible to have a download option for this event? I am located in a remote Thai village and quite often our connection speeds make it impossible to watch/participate in a live event.

  • Great, I will participate!

  • looks like this might be worth a look!

  • That’s too bad, it would be around 11:00 AM our time!

  • This sounds like an awesome event, Phil.  I’m looking forward to it.  Thanks for including the calendar links in the post.  It made it painless for me to set up my reminders.

  • PhilMershon

    Unfortunately, this will only be a live event. Sorry.

  • PhilMershon

    Amnuai, I understand your challenge and wish we could help. Unfortunately, there will not be a download option for this particular event. 

  • PhilMershon

    You’re welcome, Brad. I hope you enjoy and find it helpful!

    Hello To all 

    I really appreciate this site and have been following for a little while now

    As a Brand & player conversion marketer for one of the leading online casino brands

    The social media integration is very much on my menu 

    But as we all know face book presence is easy legitimate or not

    but converting players in completely different any ideas?

    regards jack

  • Britusa40

    Just attended your first webinar. Great content and value – exactly what Mike and MariSmith were suggesting we do when promoting our business/brand and they delivered. Practice: listening, empathy, inclusion, creating common interest, acknowledge, engagement, belonging, etc – essentially, think about the components of human relationships when marketing. Thank you. Looking forward to attending the next presentation this afternoon.
