How does your brand affect the success of your online business?
Clearly, it is very helpful to have a defined brand. But, how important is it? For starters, having your brand defined, textually, and with graphics (i.e. logos), helps to give you a starting point to setup your social media profiles and to have a consistent, and, hence, recognizable, presence -- Branding.
What is the secret to getting more Yeses than Nos when making offers?
Understanding the language and the needs of your client (or employer or audience) will go a long way in helping to obtain those "yes" responses.
How did you get started?
We start at various places. Sometimes, we re-start... many times. But, the one thing we have in common, is that we start...
How does social media PR relate to Branding?
We like to think of social media as an online extension of your brand.
Final Thoughts and Action Steps
So, let's look forward and be the best that we can be in 2013, shall we?

What's everyone up to today?
Q1 How does your brand affect the success of your online business?
A to Q#1 Your Brand is Everything. People want to know you at your core and creating a brand changes the game
Often finding your true brand means literally adding your personality to the mix. I have branded the purple haired lady (story)
hey! Thanks! Happy Wednesday!!
I am working with many MLM pros on self branding their personality first then product, company or service secondary
What businesses do all of you have? Would love to learn more.
A1 I think it it is important to define the type of brand. Is it a company, a service, or a person... ?
i am simply a blogger right now. Want to write a book, tho! Working on phoyography, too
Many women simply don't believe their idea is good enough to make money with. Watch Shark Tank. So many powerful ideas.
Blogging is the best way to get ideas out of your head and into the world. The lightbulb moments
What type of book? Novel, How-to, ebook?
So true! RT : Blogging is the best way to get ideas out of your head and into the world.
Thanks so much. I am still pretty new to tweeting and chatting.. :)
Come over to my facebook page and like it, I will send you my first 2 chapters of the Barefoot CEO!
Q2 What is the secret to getting more Yeses than Nos when making offers?
I became a widow at the age of 21 and supressed that story for a long time. When I started writing about it, something clicked.
MT : Come to my FB page and like it, I will send u my first 2 chapters of the Barefoot CEO!
all of the above? Lol. Seriously, children's books, mom devotionals, YA novels, writer's guides.
Great Question! The secret to getting more YESES and less NOs is to Listen to the "CLOSE" most people will reveal
Also come down in your tone to match theirs (Soft, Not so Soft), etc, then switch it when asking for the close.
When you talk about "offers" to you mean, like bids for client projects?
But being able to bring the pain up and heal it, allowed my spirit to be free to write. Keep writing every day.
I found 2 tools helpful. I love Storyist, for keeping organized. And, for ebooks, 's 30 day ebook.
I use ideas from the Law of Attraction to make an assumptive close as well. Lots of little things.
On 's ebook (and I'm not being paid to say this), it gives me assignments each day. I need that kick in the butt!
Hey guys, I'm just starting out exploring the options & possibilities out there. Any tips for success 4 someone in their 20s?
RT : What type of book? Novel, How-to, ebook?
Thank you for the RT for ;)
yes. Need to get ebook. Thanks for other tip.
I love work and love that she is a nature buff like me. Love to get my feet in the dirt
thanks! Trying to fit in btween all responsibilities!
Cool! Carla, from the short time I've known her, is quite the motivator ;) RT : done! Just liked ya!
These tweet chats are great for keeping up with goals to "I Think". Everyone should do this for their business.
RT : I love work and love that she is a nature buff like me. Love to get my feet in the dirt
I know what you mean. I went for a walk in the woods with my notebook making a list of blog topics.
Hey Missy. Oh, to be young like u :) If the sky is the limit, what would you dream to do?
So I work from home and my sons help me. My 15 year old SON does transcription & bakes bread.
I think my biggest challenge is to satisfy my right brain while maintaining left brain structure.
That is cool, Carla. You are training your son is so many useful areas, including business.
nice! The 20 month old isnt going to be much help outside of inspiration. 8year old approves my work (or doesnt)
They are too funny. We go to the store and they are doing the discounts in their heads to see how much they save.
Oooh... I love the analysis of right brain versus left brain. Very fascinating and explains a lot.
RT : 8year old approves my work (or doesnt) <-- luv it!
My right brain wants to get out the paint, while my strong left brain wants to chart out my day. I am hybrid but Right Primary
My goal in life is to live in passion with purpose and to make a difference in the lives of those who need me
So if anyone here reading this needs my help, just ask.
Yes, that structure left brain and logic. My music and writing comes out of that right brain.
Right Brain - ooow Shiny, Left Brain, S H I N Y :)
Q3 How did you get started?
Yes, the sky IS the limit! I dream of writing and publishing my own novels someday. & also find a job tha i enjoy doing everyday
MT : My goal in life is 2 live in passion w/ purpose & make a difference in lives of those who need me
Go ahead and dream. Maybe your "job" can be writing that novel! Have you written any, even drafts?
A3 I think the "how did I get started?" depends on which time. I've worn many hats and feel like they are coming together.
Oh you have proclaimed it now I support you on your vision. Can't wait to see the novel.
That novel could be forever income.. Go For It!
I really just want to be famous and work at home for myself. Writing is my favorite idea. Since Rockstar prob wont happen
It's the beauty of changing your hats that keeps vibrance abound ...
Cool Lydia! Are you a musician as well as writer? (And busy mom!)
YES YES YES Relax into your Power and believe that this is already true! Congrats
Yes I'm have actually written a draft of my first childrens' /pre-teen novel. Just needs editing and a beautiful cover!
Like that! RT : Its the beauty of changing your hats that keeps vibrance abound ...
An idea would be to find an "editing partner." You can read your partner's book and vice versa, for feedback.
I sing. But mostly only at church. I always dreamed of being on SNL, too. But, writing is the realistic dream. :)
ohh you are so encouraging! l'm loving this twitter chat!
I hear ya! I like to "give" with my music (see ) and the writing, etc. pays for it :)
@moppymissy I speak from my experience going from beaten and battered to empowered! I choose empowered..
Yes that sounds like a wonderful idea! Editing partners!
MT : I speak from my experience going from beaten and battered to empowered! I choose empowered..
Hi...sorry I'm a bit late

Hello. It's ok. I am usually the late one :)
I babysit in 15 minutes. My 9 month old granddaughter.
Q4 How does social media PR relate to branding?
Hi Scherrie! No such thing as late :) Welcome :)
I am starting to really become addicted to these chats. Takes me away for awhile.
hugs to him, too. Thanks for joining us and sharing.
Great Question. The #1 mistake made by people is on Facebook where there "works at" doesn't show a fanpage.
Yes. Many times these Twitter Chats have inspired me to write articles (beyond the summary posts).
If you want to attract people to your business opportunity your Social PR must reflect your connection.
RT : I am starting to really become addicted to these chats. Takes me away for awhile.
Good point. Tying those two together is a great idea.
and I believe Social Media is still in infancy, so I coach people on how to Brand themselves first on FB then on their Wordpress
Do you have a link to your coaching program?
Even if you don't have your business finished, having a fanpage that is your name keeps clickers from clicking away.
.co has some program information on there for Visioness, then 1 on 1 is done after initial consult.
I have 4 new YorkiPom/Chihuauha mix puppies ...
RT : Great Question. The #1 mistake made by people is on Facebook where there "works at" doesn't show a fanpage.
