Merry Christmas 2015 and Lessons Learned…

Hello my friends Merry Christmas from Xochitl, myself and the C.A.L. boys.

 

Christmas2015-C&XRamirez

 

As I look back at this year, I’m most grateful for my Family and Friends that have believed in me, and I in them. It wasn’t the most simplest year for us as my wife Xochitl recently hit us by surprise. She had a ruptured appendix and 4 days into it, we thought it was the stomach flu as the pain wasn’t in her lower right portion of her chest. She spent 1 week in the hospital… It was rough on us as momma has never been sick in 15 years.

We were told by the surgeon that if we would have waited any longer, she may not be here with us today. I do believe God is awesome though. Her faith being as strong as it is in the Lord kept her here. She prayed through the whole process. Her suffering really made me stop and think what is most important in our lives.

Often times through our online businesses, we are so focused on the work that we forget about the time together as a family. That balance is what is key. I’m constantly working on myself for that balance. The only way to find it is by knowing where you were, where you are, and where you want to go. Having a rock solid foundation of goals aligned with morals and faith is what we are all seeking.

As we approach 2016, think about what your goals are and foundation. Seek the importance of your business and life. If we have ever worked together in the past, you’ll know that keeping “Servant Leaders” around you and building those folks up is the key to long term success. Easier said then done for sure. You first have to become a servant leader before you can bring some on bored with you. The only way you become one is to improve the lives of those around you by you becoming grounded in your core foundations. Faith, Family, Friends, and Finances.

Check this out. I recently got back from a men’s retreat and you can align yourself with this core belief if you chose.

You can modify the last statement for whatever your belief in faith is in your life.

“Make a friend, be a friend… lead a friend to Christ.”

I know the world drops off Christ at the end, but without Him, I wouldn’t be here. Priorities first right?

Merry CHRISTmas everyone. We love you guys,

Xochitl, Cesar, and Lil Cesar, Adam and Luke Ramirez.

Tethering WIFI At An Internet Marketing Event

Hello my friend, today I’m going to share with you a little tip on what has helped me brand myself.

You know that tethering word on your smart phone. People talk about it all the time. You can tether your wifi enabled phone to your computer / laptop or even iPad, becoming “kid friendly wifi.” I’ve done it with an Android Phone as well as an iPhone. Well in the last 6 years of heavily marketing myself on the internet, I’ve came up with this simple free solution to be able to brand yourself and even capture leads at an Internet Marketing Event.

I wrote about the topic here on Facebook and it created a buzz 🙂 https://www.facebook.com/cramirez8/posts/10151991431461717?stream_ref=5

TIP FOR MY INTERNET MARKETERS TETHERING PHONE

As of writing this article here’s some tips on setting up your devices:

iPhone 5S (latest update) 7.1:

1) Tap Settings -> General -> About
2) Tap on Name and change it to your domain  or sales funnel (I changed mine to CesarRamirez.com for branding)

Branding Tethering - Create-a-Personal-Wi-Fi-Hotspot-for-Your-iPad-from-Your-iPhone-Step-5

On Android Phones:

1) Slide down your finger from the top to the bottom to pull down Smart Phone options
2) Tap the Settings Icon
3)  Tap More
4) Tap Tethering & Portable Hotspot
5) Tap Configure Wi-Fi- hotspot

Imagine this, you’re on a flight to an event. You just arrived at the airport and are looking to get online instead of using the airports wifi because it costs $10 an hour. You crank open your phone and tether it to your laptop. You realize that others around you are trying to get in but they can’t because you password protected it. Suddently you receive a message from them or an optin because they arrived at your capture page looking to snag your internet. You have just created a HTTP://WWW.ADINFUSION.COM and a perfect marketing system without working too hard. It didn’t cost you anything but doing something you were already going to do instead of branding “Cesar’s iPhone” as my SSID, you’re branding it as your domain name.

Make sure to comment below and let me know your thoughts and feedback.

Always glad to help,

Cesar Ramirez
Stay coachable. Stay humble.

Harnessing Your Internet Marketing Skills: What You Should Know

internet marketing skills

Internet marketing is a necessary strategy one should have in his/her arsenal in order to advance one’s business. Although you might not necessarily need the Internet to sell your products, you still should utilize it to lead potential customers to your website. When they reach your website, you can then market your products and services, which they can check out personally if you have an actual store or shop.

1. Learn About Internet Marketing

If you don’t know much about Internet marketing, you should surf the web and read about how it revolutionized modern advertising and marketing strategies. Get to know how you can utilize banner ads, web pages, online shopping and online marketplaces. Websites such as Craiglist, Amazon and eBay can help you get a better idea of what you should do with your own sites.

If there are websites that can teach you the right Internet marketing strategy, then there are also blog articles and resource pages that can boost what you currently know about marketing your products and services. Read as much as you can about Internet marketing, so that you can get a pretty good idea about what you need to do.

2. Sign Up For Online Marketing Classes

Since you will be too busy with your business to take up a regular marketing class, you can instead take an online class that will teach you the different strategies of Internet marketing. You can learn a lot from free online classes, resources and journals. Take one basic course at a time, so you can really focus on what strategy will work best for your business.

3. Check Out Which Social Media Will Work For Your Business

Whether it’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn or Google Plus, you won’t do wrong with trying to advertise or market your business through social networking sites. You have to pick the right social media for Internet marketing. Yes, there is such a thing as the right social media. You have to harness where to focus your resources exactly. It would be perfect if you can balance the number of people following all your social accounts. However, since that will take a lot of effort and energy, you should put extra attention on the social media where you have a large following.

4. Choose The Best Strategy

Based on what you have read on the Internet and what you read from blog articles, you can produce a strategy that will help your business in attracting customers through Internet marketing. Your products and services must speak for themselves. Look for similarities and differences with your competitors. Know what works for them and what did not, and always learn from the experiences of the other websites.

Before investing all your resources in one particular strategy for Internet marketing, make sure you have all the right material to market your products and resources. Don’t dive into something you are not sure of. Although risks are unavoidable in Internet marketing, you have to take all the possible precautions to protect your investment whether it’s a traditional ira or SEO.

How To Take Advantage of Pinterest in Internet Marketing

pinterest for internet marketing

Pinterest is not like Facebook and Twitter wherein interaction is the name of the game. Pinterest relies heavily on images, videos and descriptions, making it one of the most obvious methods you can market your products and services through the Internet. Established in 2009, Pinterest has over one million visitors daily who pins, re-pins, likes and shares the boards created on the site.

And thanks to iOS and Android applications, it has now become easier for business people to present their products and services in a more interesting way. Truly, Pinterest is now an Internet marketing tool that marketers can utilize in order to make sure their products and services reach the right audience.

1. Create Unique Boards

Don’t just create vague and general boards such as “things I like,” “fashion” or “Pearl Rings.” Create something that will surely be noticed by potential customers. If you are selling dresses, you may term it as “cute and fashionable dresses from the US.” If you are selling iPhone accessories, you should also create a name that pertains to those products.

2. Use High-Quality Images

Potential customers will naturally be more attracted to your boards if you use high-quality images that will show the beauty of your products. You can only imagine how uninteresting images with crappy resolution are. Use images that are 600 to 800 pixels wide and 1000 pixels deep. If the image is too small, your followers may not be able to re-pin it. And if they can find the same image with a better resolution on another website, they might use that image and you will lose traffic on your site.

3. Invite Followers

Doing Internet marketing on Pinterest relies heavily on how many followers you can attract. Since Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are still the most popular social networking sites out there, you must post links there to your Pinterest account. Also, you might be able to attract more customers if you give out prizes for your followers who can get the more likes for a board they re-pinned from your account.

4. Add Detailed Descriptions

It is not only important that you post high-quality images on your Pinterest account. It is also highly vital that you add detailed descriptions on your boards. Describe your products or your services and make sure to word the descriptions in such a way that can attract consumers. Give the details they need and answer questions as they were posted.

5. Link The Boards Back To Your Actual Site

A Pinterest account is not enough to make a successful Internet marketing bid. You have to link the boards to your website wherein they will find more information about your business. Pinterest is one of the top social networking sites that has a high referral rate, so you have to make use of this interesting tidbit.

People pin thousands of boards every day, and they follow people they don’t even know as long as their boards interested them. To have a successful Internet campaign on Pinterest, you have to make sure your boards are interesting enough for potential customers to re-pin them and follow you. Treat your Pinterest account as you would treat your actual business’ website. It is an avenue wherein your business can thrive.

Your partner in success,
