The New Technological Rise Of Podcasts

There are blogs, websites, videos, social media channels, and multiple media outlets for entertainment. One newer social media fad that is up and coming and becoming more popular are podcasts. Podcasts are taking over radio talk hosts, TV shows, talk shows, and other video streaming outlets, and becoming a top entertainment usage.

Podcasts are known as short episodic media files that provide information, or entertainment to the viewers. They are sometimes liaisons for audio, web, and portable media players. Podcasts are becoming more and more popular over the last two years. From 2008 it was at a 9% listening rate, and now in 2016 it has a 21% listening rate. Monthly memberships have now grown up to 75% since 2013, and are up to 57 million viewers annually. Companies are now also beginning to use short podcasts to grab the attention of consumers and it is helping with marketing while keeping costs down.

Viewers get all most any information they want with the podcasts and they can listen whenever and however they want. You can find any podcast for any part of the world online and download them, or stream them. An example is my podcast the Razor Sharp Show… One of Australias Best Podcast… I know I might be a little bias! Podcasting has allowed me to connect with come amazing business greats like Michael E. Gerber author of Beyond The E-Myth

A reason for podcasts being so popular these days is the fact that is is on demand. Consumers can take this on the go and listen whenever they want. You can listen in the car, in the gym, while you are running. These podcasts are about anything and all things. Consumers determine what they want to listen to and how much. They are taking it to them wherever they go, you can see people driving with them, waiting for the bus with them, and just about anything! You can blame podcasts for the reason we all have stopped talking to each other.

Podcasts are quickly turning into the new blogs and faster way to get the news and opinions for the viewers who want it. You get to choose what you listen to and you get to listen to it whenever you want and wherever you want. Blogs are currently declining in popularity and turning into podcasts, due to the flexibility and technological advances that the podcasts are giving to viewers and creators everywhere. We are seeing a new and upcoming way to get entertainment and news!

Why You Should Have Video In Your Marketing Plan To Survive Into 2017

People have always responded best to visual stimulus and now that everyone has a smartphone in their pocket, this aspect of human nature has only become more exacerbated. Whether you are using Insta Stories, FB Live or Snapchat, there is no denying the importance of video in our daily lives.

As a result of this shift in how we consume media, more and more companies are incorporating video based marketing into their advertising campaigns. To some, this idea may seem optional, but for those who are truly in the know, video is now an essential plan of the marketing plan for any company that wishes to survive 2016 and thrive into 2017.

video-01

The exploding amount of video content online makes this reality almost impossible to ignore, even for those who consider themselves staunch believers in traditional forms of advertising. Companies that refuse to embrace this new reality and get with the times are risking getting left behind.

There’s a wide range of benefits that companies enjoy when they begin to use video in their marketing plans. For starters, the utilisation of video in your marketing efforts serves as a major boost to your search engine optimisation. When you add an intriguing or beneficial video to the front page, it is far more likely to end up on the front page of Google’s search results.

And after all, isn’t that what marketing is all about, making sure that your company is placed in front of the widest possible audience? Videos demand more attention from the consumer and since we are currently living in an era where attention spans have never been shorter, including video in your marketing plan has taken on a level of added importance.

Video content is not only more likely to be seen, but it is also more likely to be shared. Video based marketing plans can help every business, from the smallest to the largest, as there is no telling what content will go viral. A business can vault from virtual unknown to the talk of the town in one fell swoop and all it takes is one well-crafted video.

video-02

Did you know that a browser is far more likely to watch a video from start to finish than they are to finish your text-based content? When you have an important message to get across, the modern consumer is far more likely to watch your Insta Stories, FB Live sessions and your Snapchats than they are to read a massive wall of text or open your emails.

Companies that wish to survive into 2017 will either need to get with the times or risk getting left behind. Video content engenders a strong emotional connection, is more likely to be seen and shared and will ensure that your company remains on the cutting edge going forward.

More than the goal, it is the journey that will make you happy

Hi Friends,

I want you to stop what you’re doing and think about a particular goal that you are aiming to reach in your life right now. It could be anything, whether it’s a job promotion, a new car, or maybe a few inches off of your waist. Think about what you will feel when you finally reach that goal? Let me guess, you’ll be happy and ecstatic, right?

Most people are programmed to think that way. We are trained to have specific goals that will make us feel good about ourselves. It’s normal for us to think about the future with the mindset that we will be happy once we get there.

Although there is nothing really wrong with that, the problem lies when we become too focused with our goal that we ignore an integral part of the equation… the journey. Sometimes, we are very much brainwashed with the idea that the goal is the only thing that will make us happy to the extent that we overlook the small successes that we have to go through along the way in order to reach that goal. More than the destination, it is the journey that should make you happy, and that’s what we tend to forget.

We become too focused with our goal that we ignore an integral part of the equation… the journey! Click To Tweet

I am guilty of having this mindset. I always set goals and make game plans towards reaching them, delaying happiness until I succeed. Once I get it, though, I see myself asking for more. So I set a new goal and make new game plans towards reaching them, delaying happiness again until I succeed. The simple desire of attaining happiness becomes a never-ending cycle that goes on and on and on. Then I realized… why do I only focus my happiness on a big goal when there are a lot of things that could make me happy along the way?

Happiness can also come from the little improvements that we do each day. Instead of having just a future goal to inspire us, our day-to-day achievements should drive us in a positive state. The happiest thing about setting a goal is becoming the person you need to be and developing the skills you need to have in order to reach that goal.

The journey is as important as the destination, so make sure that it is also something that you will enjoy. Surround yourself with the right people, take your time, observe and enjoy the changes that takes place, make a conscious effort to enjoy the now. It will make the experience more rewarding and it will make your story more inspiring once you share it with others. After all, what makes a movie great is not the ending credits — it’s the scenes during the whole movie. As Denis Waitley once said, “It is not in the pursuit of happiness that we find fulfillment, it is in the happiness of pursuit.”

I will leave you with that. Happy thinking.

Till next time, #staySharp.

Start With Why?: How Simon Sinek Changed My Life

Hi Friends,

In my first “Who am I Following?” post, I introduced you to Simon Sinek, one of the best TED Talk creators in my opinion. Today, I will tell you a little bit more about this amazing guy so, like me, you too can be inspired and motivated with his ideals and philosophies about leadership and management.

Simon O. Sonek is an English motivational speaker and author of the best-selling books Start With Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone to Take Action (2009) and Leaders Eat Last: Why Some Teams Pull Together and Others Don’t (2014). He popularized the concept of “The Golden Circle” which states that in everything we do, we must first identify “why” we are doing it instead of focusing on the “what” and the “how.” In his famous TED Talk, he mentions that innovative leaders and industry game changers like Apple Inc., Martin Luther King Jr., and the Wright Brothers apply this concept of focusing on why they do the things they do. This inspires more people because they align everything they do in the “why” and people, honestly speaking, support a company or an organization not because of what they do but because of why they do it.

After i read his Start With Why book, I totally understood how the golden circle works in my everyday life. Now, everything that I do, I make sure that it related to my “why” instead of my “what” or “how.” This really changed my life because it’s now easier for me to motivate myself and to live my daily life, as long as I am fully aware as to why I do the things I do.

I strongly advise that you watch his TED Talks at least once a month. You may also visit his website and be inspired everyday, whether it’s for your business, your studies, or your everyday living.

Till next time, #staySharp.

Together Help Who am I Following

March: Who am I following at the moment?

Hello friends,

Last month, I talked about a blog that will be a monthly regular feature for my blog. I introduced you to three amazing people that I think everyone (including you!) must follow online. I am sure many of you have already learned a lot of great things from these people. (If you have no idea what I am talking about, you better go ahead and read my blog about them.)

For this month,

Number One – Dan Norris

dan-norrisDan is crazy!! His passion for entrepreneurship and content marketing is truly remarkable. He loves creating shitloads of content (from books, to blogs, up to videos and snaps!) about everything he loves and he loves sharing it to the world. Dan is currently managing not one, but three companies, all of which are doing great in their fields. Dan is also the author of two Amazon bestseller books about 7 Day Start Up and Content Machine.

I can totally relate with how Dan maximizes his passion in achieving incredible results. What I love about him is that he is not afraid to do the things he wants and he makes money doing it. Heck, he even launched a company and a book about beers. Why? Just because he loves it! And it seems like there is no stopping him from doing anything. In fact, he would love to hear ideas from and help anyone! Go ahead and shoot him a message or join his 7 Day Startup Challenge!

 

Number Two – John Lee Dumas

Johnstreaming_podcast_workshop is a podcast superman! He talks to entrepreneurs EVERY. SINGLE. DAY and features them on his EOFire Podcast which, by the way, is awarded Best of iTunes! He created a 9-step strategy to help people gain entrepreneurial supremacy online and his website has loads of recommended resources for online entrepreneurs.

His dedication to help people in launching their own online businesses is very inspiring. Aside from his bestselling books about online marketing and podcasting, John also hosts a webinar and podcast community and offers (okay… I know I might lose you after this part…) FREE webinar and podcast courses!

 

Number Three – Merry Maker Sisters

Emma-Carla-Papas-The-Merrymaker-Sisters1I hope you are still with me as I am ecstatic to finally feature not one, but two female podcasters! Emma and Carla are real life sisters and health and happiness advocates. These totally energetic girls caught my attention when their podcast smashed download charts. After I checked their website, I understood why these girls are such a big hit. Its all about ENERGY!

Emma and Carla are on a mission to merrymake over the world, and oh boy they are really doing it! It seems that they are born to inspire people to eat healthy and live happy. These girls are taking action in their passion and it is really paying off! I am not a foodie but after following them, I cannot stop myself from either smiling or feeling hungry… or both!

 

Dan, John, Emma and Carla are great examples of how important passion is. It’s not just a hobby or a recreation for them. Passion is their life. They eat, breathe, and live it. And look at who they are now… happy people who are successful in their chosen fields!

My search for the best people to follow online doesn’t stop. Learning different things from different people is truly an exceptional experience and a powerful tool towards success.

MASSIVE ACTION TASK — In the comments below, please share what qualities you are looking for in a person for you to follow them online. Feel free to talk about people you currently follow and why. I will be giving away books to people who comment, so make sure your comments are good.

Till next time #staySharp

I made it! – 30 Day Blog Challenge

Day 30 of 30 Day Blog Challenge – Done!

Hi Friends,

WOW! The end of this Challenge has come, and what a Journey it has been. I answer some questions about the experience, if you did not do the challenge then I hope you join me on some of my upcoming challenges.

Was the challenge what you expected?

No and Yes, I actually thought this challenge would be about writing blogs, so this part was as expected. What I did not expect to learn is how much my blog would evolve of the 30 days to have more features. What I found is this while I was writing different types of blogs I was thinking of new features to add to my blog, like image light boxes, sign up forms and cool plugins like tweet this. The more I blogged and shared the more I learned.

What did you learn from the challenge?

The main thing I learned from this challenge was that you need to plan ahead and be organised. Towards the end I started to be less organised and I ran into writers block and had no idea what to blog about. I also learned that I hate writing. lol I know that sounds strange given that I have a blog but I am not designed to blog daily. Moving forward it will be weekly or even a few times a month, when I have something solid to share. I also learned that I enjoy doing videos and recording more, in fact I even thought about speaking my blogs and have someone transcribe them, but I think video is the future so stand by as I start vlogging! 30 Day Challenge vLog style is coming!

Who would you recommend this challenge to?

I would recommend this to anyone who has just started a blog or someone who has stopped blogging, the 30 day challenge hands down got me off my ass and doing work. One night I was in ben and was like SHIT i forgot to blog. So up I got and got blogging. This challenge is great to get into the habit of not only blogging, but also being at the shops and have a blog idea coz you just saw or heard something random. I use trello to plan my blogs, so when I had these moments I would add it to my ideas list.

What did you struggle the most with? 

The biggest struggle for me was coming up with ideas that I wanted to write about, see I can talk about business and tip for hours, but when it comes to writing about it, different story.

Did you find any part of the challenge easy?

Setting up on wordpress was the easiest part, the rest takes work and commitment. If you really want to make this work for you, you will find a way. It is ok to quit if you find that it is not working, only thing I would suggest is find something that does work. Like maybe guest blogging, video blogging or something simple like a photo a day with a quote.

Did you ever want to quit?

I will be honest, in the last 7 days, maybe 14 times. The last 7 days was by far the hardest, it was the last stretch but was easy to say to myself “well I did most of it, go me!”

Any last tips?

Do this challenge with a group of friends, it is much easier when you are accountable in a group, I guess that is with most things.

Will you do more challenges?

YES! – Head over to my 30 day challenge page to see more and keep up to date.

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Are you a Multipotentialite? Yes, it is a real word, the video explains!

Day 29 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Today I would like to introduce you to a new word, Multipotentialite.

I became rather excited when I watched Emilie Wapnick TED Talk, video is below for your enjoyment. I was excited because for too long I was under the thought that I needed to be one thing when I grew up. Why is that? Why can you not be a farmer and a digital marker?

I often would read that you need to find your one true passion and then do that to be successful, but for me I had passion for more than one thing and the things I was passionate about were not closely connected, and to top that off, they all made me happy!

If you read my CV you would think I had some split personalities going on, Self Employed, Web Designer, LED Lighting, Caravans, Business Owner, GM! Arrr! stop too much!

After watching the TED talk and discovering what a Multipotentialite was I felt at home and relaxed. I knew that there were others in the same boat, I also realised that I am a Multipotentialite, the best things about the talk was when Emilie talks about intersections. My mind blew up and the ideas started to flow. The though of getting multiple passions, finding their intersections and creating a career in that! Truly a Ah ha moment for me.

Enough from me, watch the TEDTalk below!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Here is an idea… Manage your energy, not your time.

Day 27 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

So you work 60-hour weeks, grab something to eat when you can (usually something processed and pre-packaged that you eat while you’re working or driving), rarely exercise, and are sleep deprived and exhausted. Sound bloody familiar? It’s the way of life for many and it’s leaving us distracted, unengaged, and unhealthy. That’s because we are trying to accomplish as much as possible in a certain number of hours.

What if I told you it doesn’t have to be this way? What if I told you that there’s a better way? I’ve found that by managing my energy instead of managing my time, my productivity and my quality of life has improved.

I made life changes that give me more energy, and I’m accomplishing more in less time believe it or not. I also feel better. There are so many things you can do to increase your energy. A big one is to improve your sleep and also start doing meditation.

You also need to know when you operate at your best, if you are a morning person then you need to do the important tasks first and do them in the morning, and if you work better after 9pm then this is when you need to do your important work. Get it?

Next time you need to increase productivity, manage your energy and not your time. Click To Tweet

Most of us are sleep-deprived. There is a lot of information on the internet about how you can improve your sleep. Developing a nighttime routine, cutting alcohol out or back, and turning all electronics off an hour or two before going to bed are a few of the things I learned about that are easy to do. Simply improving your quantity of sleep will increase your energy, allowing you to more fully engage with friends and family and accomplish more in less time. I am not saying you need to sleep more, you just need to sleep better.

Long stretches of work without a break drains your energy as well. Take a break a couple of times a day. Set an alarm on your phone or computer if you have to so you don’t forget. When the alarm goes off, get up from your desk, go for a walk, get a drink of water, go outside if possible get some fresh air. Your head will be clear again and the movement will get your blood moving again, giving you that energy boost. On a plus side the extra exercise a couple of times a day will help you sleep better too!

Managing your energy also benefits your workplace, whether you work for yourself or someone else. Studies show that companies whose employees manage their energy are more productive and have less turnover than other companies. Their employees take fewer sick days and accomplish more through the day.

Taking steps to manage your energy instead of your time benefits you, your friends, your family and your workplace. So next time you need to increase productivity, manage your energy and not your time.

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Have you discovered the power of deep breathing?

Day 26 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Did you know that your brain consumes over 20% of the oxygen that you breath in?

The quality of the oxygen you breath is critical to the health of your blood and your brain function. If you are not getting enough oxygen in your lungs which oxygenates your blood and flows to your brain you will not perform at your best, your thinking will be cloudy and you feel tired.

A great way to get more oxygen into your blood is to exercise so your breathing increases and you take deep breaths which fills more of your lungs with oxygen. It is your lower lungs that has the ability to absorb more oxygen into your blood.

You can also force your lungs to breath in more oxygen. I recall being at a Tony Robbins event where he asked us to breath in, hold it, then he asked us to breath in a bit more and hold it, a bit more and then a bit more. Try it, you can always breath that little more. You doing it? Go on.

Doing this three times a day will energise you to a level that will be surprising! Click To Tweet

Happy deep breathing and a toast to more energy and feeling better!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

Do Rocks first, then pebbles and play with sand LAST.

Day 25 of 30 Day Blog Challenge

Hi Friends,

Do Rocks first, then pebbles and play with sand LAST.

What the hell am I talking about? You need to watch this video and it will all make so so so much sense.

It seems so simple yet hardly anyone is doing it. Doing this alone will make you kick MASSIVE goals.

Moral of the Story? Do the important tasks first and then fill the gaps with less important tasks. I know this sounds so basic but I really think the video gives everyone a powerful visualization of what you are doing if you fill your life with stupid sand tasks.

So before you go anywhere, work out what your BIG rocks are and work towards getting them in your bucket of life!

Till next time, always be sharpening your saw.

30 Day Blog Challenge Network Marketing Together Help Wealth Creation

Business card networking is DEAD, you need to be SOCIAL networking. Are you ready?

Day 22 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hi Friends,

I have some bad news today, the traditional way of networking is DEAD, that is right, you can not longer expect to go to a networking event and hand out business cards or collect them and see your business grow.

We live in a time where everything is high-tech and people are looking for high touch experience when they meet with you. They need to know that you care and you have their interest at heart.

Of late I have started to connect and network using social media and other alternative way.

Here is what I do, when I am at a networking event and people ask me for a business card my response is I don’t have one, let’s connect on linkedin or FB. This enables us to be in contact a lot easier then emails, because let’s face it, email is the new snail mail.

Using SOCIAL media is the new way of networking, over the past 4 weeks I have been revving up my social activity and the amount of like minded and amazing people I have meet via comment chats or direct messages is unreal. The amazing thing is that I can be doing this kind of networking 247, while I am on the train, while I am multitasking and for the hell of it, even in bed in the last hours of hustle.

I 100% still go to networking events as you need to be see to be heard, in fact these days when I go to networking events I try to be more involved with the organization of the event or even be a speaker at the event. If you really want to be noticed then hands down you need to be on the stage, that gives you the best possible chance to meet the most amount of people in the room, with the least amount of effort. Sure that makes Tim Ferriss very happy.

Listen more than you talk, use your ears and mouth ration 2:1 Click To Tweet

My networking tips in somewhat order.

  • Be clear on who you would like to meet and why?
  • Your goal is to have people, Know, Like and Trust you!
  • Be the speaker of the event or host, if that is not possible be the one person in the room that people want to meet.
  • Start conversations by asking simple but open ended questions.
  • Networking is like dating, don’t ask for marriage on the first date.
  • Listen more than you talk, use your ears and mouth ration 2:1
  • IF and only IF you have enjoyed the chat, thank them for their time and ask if they would like to continue the chat after the event.
  • Add on social on the spot! if you have to, get a business card. (Read below what I do when I get a business card)
  • The next day follow your new friend around on social, not stalker style either, DO NOT like old photos that is wired)
  • Then you Jab, Jab, Jab and then Right Hook! (If you don’t know what this is then you need to subscribe to be alerted of my podcast, i’ll be covering that off soon)
  • JV, Partner, Guest Blog, Do lunches and help each other grow & win, win, win!

What I do IF I happen to get a business card

In fact, I often don’t even take the card from them, I simply take a photo. Why? Great Question, not only is it more environmentally friendly, but it enables me to email it to my VA who will try to find the person on social, send friend request and then types all the info right into my iCloud contact so just like BAM the details are in my phone! hey presto! Surly as business owners our time can be used to solve greater problems. right?

Hope you have enjoyed this, please comment below your networking tips, tricks and success.

Coffee Buddy and the 7 day startup challenge by Dan Norris

Day 20 of 30 Day blog challenge.

So after some thinking, a business partner and I have decided to reopen an old idea. 2.5 years ago we had an idea to create an app that helped coffee drinker across Melbourne save money while consuming large amounts of coffee everyday. We went all in and we went too complicated. We spent a crap load of money (10K) to create and Apple and Android version of our app. Why? Who bloody knows. I’ll go into all the detail in a podcast soon.

Quick Lesson learned – If you have an app idea test it via a mobile site first, when it gets traction then build the app.

Now that we are older and maybe wiser we have decided to apply some of the lean startup principles and take part in the 7 day startup challenge by Dan Norris

So if you live in melbourne and want to be part of the first coffee lovers to be a coffee buddy member, head over to the site and enter your email to be notified when we go live! HowItWorks

One Thing Equals EVERYTHING

Day 14 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Hey Friends,

Have you ever noticed that organised people at work tend to be organised in other parts of their life? 

Given that today is the 1st of the 1st I thought it would be fitting to share this principle. One thing = everything.  

This principle basically highlights that the way people do one thing is how they will do everything. 

Let me throw you an example. Someone who is super neat with their car is highly likely to have other parts of their life neat, like their desk at work, their bedroom and even their mind. Everything will be neat. 

With this in mind it also means that we can tell a lot about someone by the way they act or present themselves.  

The biggest example that just gets me so mad is when people say on their resume/CV that they have attention to detail however they have bullet points that don’t even line up. Are you bloody shitting me? I will be honest I rip these CVs up. 

Friends it is important to always act within in your zone of beliefs, don’t say you are something like a tidy person but your car has not been cleaned since 1995, your room is a mess and your to do lists look like a mind map. 

One thing = Everything. - The way people do one thing is how they will do everything. Click To Tweet

I am not saying that you need to judge people too quickly but keep in mind that someone who let’s say can not get their act together when pitching to you, will not have their act together when doing business with you. Simple. Stay away and find someone that aligns with your expectations.

So remember everyone is always watching and one thing equals everything. 

#razorSharp – Always be sharpening the saw.

Hey Friends,

bookLeft1Today I would like to introduce you to Simon Sinek, he truly changed my life! We have not met yet but I follow everything that Simon does online, yes stalker style!

I read his book, “Start With Why” 5 years ago in 2011 and ever since I have defined my WHY and filter everything through it. I really mean everything. This blog and what I will launch in 2016 are all things I wanted to start to align more with my WHY.

While I highly, highly, highly recommend that you read the book, you will also get super inspired by his TED talk below. In fact it will be the best 18 minutes and 4 seconds of your life.

Start to understand that people don't buy what you do... they buy WHY you do it. Thanks @simonsinek Click To Tweet WIN: I will pick someone at random who shares this tweet above to win a copy of “Start With Why” by Simon Sinek book!

After you watch the video and order the book, start to think about what your WHY is and truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it. let me say that again. Truly start to understand that people don’t buy what you do… they buy WHY you do it.

Whatever you do, private or business make sure it aligns with your WHY!

Yearly Challenge – 2016 I go Vegetarian

Hey Friends in 2016 I go Vegetarian!

Day 11 of 30 Day blog challenge.

Every year myself and a few friends do a yearly challenge. In 2016 we have decided to go Vegetarian for the whole year and also 1 month in 2016 be vegan, like most of the challenges they stick, so for me I am planning to be Vegetarian from 2016 and beyond.

The yearly challenge is great for willpower but it is also great for lifestyle and building habit. In 2015 we started to shop local and ditch shopping at the large supermarket chains like Coles and Safeway, this is 100% something that I will continue to do forever. Not only did we support local business we also saved money, who would have thought!

Some of the past yearly challenges have included, no coffee, no fast food, no soft drink and shop local.

So come on and jump on board, have a think about what challenge you need to do and commit for only 1 year, or even just do it for 1 month.

The best feeling is when you get to the end and you know that you can do it, and that you have the willpower to commit. If you can do a simple yearly challenge, then you can do anything.

Looking forward to sharing the journey with you all.

Comment below what challenge you will do in 2016!

Lots of Love

Ray
