Don’t Miss The Blab Boat!
Excuse me but there’s something HUGE happening in social media lately and I worry that we’re missing it. I’m talkipng about blab.im.
Check out this picture and ask yourself, “If I had something like this going for my brand, how could it possibly hurt anything?”
Friends… I’m not bragging because actually this has been a lot of fun. Blab.im, which I’ve been harping about a lot, really is fun and if you haven’t staked out a free account (the only kind they have!) over there you’re crazy.
I bought that domain name, MLMTalkLive.com and I’ve actually got more responses from MLM people in my Twitter account and in my gMail than I can handle (keeping in mind that I’m definately not a Twitter power user). The point is that there is so much FREE POWER in blab.im for making connections with like-minded MLM entrepreneurs that it’s just mind-boggling.
I did my very first blab probably the second day after I learned about Blab. I didn’t need any instructions because it’s that intuitive (although the whole community over there is very helpful and supportive). That’s lucky of course because there aren’t any instructions at this point…but it’s still not a big deal.
Anyway…. we’ve supposedly got something unique here in Market Hive too, don’t we?
So what are YOU doing to promote it?
IMHO, if you think that ‘the tools’ are going to do it all for you, I think that’s a big mistake. It might work in someways but I’ll guarantee you that somebody who uses the same tools but sticks their ‘brand’ onto hot new platforms, like blab, that tons of people are getting interest in….who do you think is going to get ahead faster?
There’s only a slight difference between pitching a new idea and sharing a new idea. Most people are very sensitive about being ‘pitched’ to but they’re much more amenable to being ‘shared’ with. The difference is the fact that in one situation (pitching) you usually don’t know the other person very well. Whereas, with sharing, there’s already a relationship there.
It seems to me that blab is an uber-cool way to build a reputation… a relationship which will facilitate you/me/us sharing MarketHive with the people who need it. And if we don’t find a proactive way to start sharing MarketHive…I personally don’t think the business is going to just miraculously come to us on its own because we’re so ‘innovative’.
Every one of those four interviews (i.e. blabs) that you see listed on that picture, which you’ll also see here
, are interviews and connection and possible future Market Hivers, simply by attending a few blabs and being observant of the data options that the system provides.
Blab is very heavy on using Twitter handles and that person’s bio, on Twitter, also includes what they’re ‘into’. Lots of them are into MLM. Of course there’s other uses for MarketHive but obviously MLMers are the most obvious niche for us right now.
Alll I did to get those interviews is send them a note, via Twitter, saying “Hey, I see you’re in X company. Would you like to do a blab with me to talk about what’s hot over there right now?’
In the case of Elias Callejo, I still have no idea what MLM he’s in although I think he’s a heavy-hitter.
The travel writer lady, Kristy, I just saw ‘travel-writer’ in her Twitter profile as a follower on somebody else’s Twitter profile. I know something about travel-writing myself and I knew that most MLMers have a conscious ‘fear-of-writing’ so I contacted her and said, “Hey, would you be interested in doing a blab with me, for MLMers, about how and why they should learn the basics of writing?’
Her answer was affirmative.
The Plexus lady (a weight loss product)… I’m sure she just wanted some publicity.
The Twitter lady, Madalyn, I met her on a blab she was doing and just texted her and invited her to come on my blab. She couldn’t come on at the normal time I’ve been using, 1000 hrs, but we worked it out to do her on Friday at 1400hrs. It was easy.
And don’t forget that if you host a blab, you receive both the MP4 file, which you can turn into a podcast and you get the full video file. I haven’t learned how to embed the player yet (it seems to be an ‘iframe’ format) but eventually I will. For now, the straight link works fine.
And I’d also like to remind you that the strategy of building a reputation as an expert simply by talking to experts (even if you’re not, is as old as the hills. People tend to judge you by the people they see/hear you associating with.
And that also not to mention the likelihood that some of the people I’m talking to will remember me if I at treat them right. How friggin’ hard is that??
You think they won’t pay attention to me, at some point in the future, when I say something to them about Valentus and/or MarketHive??
You better believe it!
At this point, I really would appreciate some support over there for the blabs I’m doing. And I’ll support you too when you do yours. We’ve got the potential here to literally take that platform over if we really wanted to.
We could do it a lot quicker if we worked together and it’s certainly in our best interest (in addition to being a LOT of fun!). They’re new and unique and so are we. I I think blab.im could be a perfect vehicle for us to match velocity and cruise forward more effortlessly with.
And we could start today on my blab at noon (CST) with Elias. He’s probably a very influential guy and if he saw the uniqueness of MarketHive I think it would certainly help our cause.
It really comes down to what kind of ‘big picture’ we see,
