The Power of Visualization Mindset


The Miller Mindset: Episode # 0022

Welcome to “The Miller Mindset” podcast, a weekly podcast where we explore the power of positive thinking and its impact on our lives. Join me, Chris Miller, as we dive into such topics as goal- setting, overcoming obstacles, and developing a growth mindset. If you’re looking to improve your life and reach your full potential, then this podcast is for you. Don’t miss an episode. Be sure to subscribe today!

On last week’s show, I told you that this week I would give you a simple visualization technique that will help you focus your energy and reach your potential. Well, I’m going to one-up myself here, and give you 2, as we exploring the power of visualization and its impact on achieving success in your business, and in your life. These two techniques are powerful in of themselves, but if you decide to combine them together, you can really tap into a powerhouse of drive and determination that can take you far. So let’s get into it.

Watch Episode 22 Now!

Let’s start by defining our topic and what it can do for us in our lives. Visualization is the act of creating a mental image or picture of a desired outcome. It is a powerful tool that can help us achieve our goals by harnessing the power of the mind to guide us in the right direction. Visualization is used by many successful people, including some of the top performers in the business world, athletes, and performers as well. It allows us an opportunity to create a mental representation of our goals and helps us focus our energies and attentions on achieving them. When we take the time to visualize our goals, we are able to glimpse the future that could be before us, and see ourselves succeeding. This helps to build our confidence and motivation, as well as our drive and determination. More importantly however, it keeps us on our path so that we don’t deviate and lose our way.

One of the most effective ways to use visualization is to create a vision board. A vision board is a visual representation of our goals and dreams that we can use as a daily reminder of what we want to achieve. By looking at our goals in front of us every day, we are able to stay focused and motivated, and take the necessary steps to turn our dreams into reality.

Here are some steps to help you create a vision board of your own:

1. Define your goals:

Before you start creating your vision board, it’s important to define your goals. What do you want to achieve in your business or personal life? Be specific and write down your goals in a journal or on a piece of paper.

2. Collect images and words:

Once you have defined your goals, start collecting images and words that represent your goals and dreams. You can find images in magazines, on the internet, or take your own photos. Choose images that inspire and motivate you.

3. Choose a board:

You can create your vision board on a poster board, a cork board, or even a digital board. Choose a board that works best for you As an example I keep my vision board in front of me all day long because I created it as my desktop image on my computer.

4. Arrange your images and words:

Once you have collected your images and words, arrange them on your board in a way that makes sense to you. You can group them by category or arrange them in a way that tells a story.

5. Display your vision board:

Once you have created your vision board, display it in a place where you will see it every day. This can be in your office, bedroom, or any other place where you spend a lot of time, such as I do with my desktop image on my computer.

By following these simple steps, you can create a visual representation of your goals that will help you stay motivated and focused on achieving success in both your business and personal life.

Another way to use visualization is to practice it daily.

Take a few minutes each day to visualize yourself achieving your goals. Imagine yourself succeeding and feeling the emotions that come with it. This will help to create a positive mindset and keep you focused on your goals. To make the most of this technique, here are a few steps to guide an help you get started:

1. Be clear when you think of your goals:

Before you can start visualizing your success, you need to be clear about what you want to achieve. Write down your goals on 3×5 cards as an example, and be as specific as possible.

2. Create a mental picture:

Once you have identified your goals, create a mental picture of yourself achieving them. Imagine what it would look like, how you will feel, and what you will be doing. Your vision board can help with this in a big way if you have created one.

3. Exercise this Visualization as a daily ritual:

Set aside a few minutes each day to practice visualization. Take a good look at your vision board, close your eyes, and visualize yourself achieving your goals in as much detail as possible. Imagine every aspect of your success, from the sights and sounds, and even smells of the flowers in a garden if you have one in your vision. Capture all of the emotions you feel.

4. Use all your senses:

As you visualize, use all your senses to create a vivid mental image. Imagine the sounds, smells, and textures associated with your success. This will help make your visualization more realistic and engaging.

5. Stay positive:

As you visualize, focus on the positive emotions associated with your success. Imagine feeling happy, proud, and fulfilled. This will help you maintain a positive mindset and keep you motivated.

6. Do it for no less than 28 days in a row without fail.

This will help you make a habit to visualize your success every day, even if it’s just for a few minutes.

Looking for a Good Start in Business?

Well, that’s our show for today folks. Always remember, Visualization is a powerful tool that can help you achieve success in your business and life. By creating a mental image of your goals and dreams, you are able to focus your energy and attention on achieving them.

Cyber-Attack Ad
The Importance of Cyber Protection for Your Business

In today’s digital age, businesses are increasingly relying on online platforms to operate and communicate. However, with this increased use of technology comes the risk of cyber attacks and data breaches. It is crucial for companies to invest in cyber protection measures to ensure the safety and security of their sensitive information. One effective solution is to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) and a  Virtual Private Server (VPS) service which offers enhanced security features such as firewall protection, regular software updates, and user-friendly management tools. By using a VPS, businesses can significantly reduce the risk of cyber attacks and protect their data from hackers and malicious actors.

Additionally, VPS services often come with round-the-clock technical support to ensure prompt resolution of any security issues. In today’s era of ever-increasing cyber threats, taking proactive steps to protect your business is essential for maintaining a secure and trustworthy online presence.

If you are thinking your business is too small to worry about a cyber-attack...YOU'RE WRONG.

My Business was Hacked in 2021, and I had to shut down and re-think my cyber security. We had 6 websites which all had to be taken down and re-coded. The process took 3 months. That’s 3 months that our on-line presence was not out there bringing in new business. The cost was huge. I wish I had acted sooner to protect our data, but I really didn’t think we were a large enough target for hackers. Turned out I was wrong.

Don’t make the same mistakes I did. I started learning about cyber-attackers and cyber-security at that point. I found out that having a VPN could have protected my private network and my files, but I also found out that my on-line files were FREE TO FIND by anyone with the knowhow for where to go looking because what I needed was a VPS for my business. My webhost wasn’t protecting me, or informing me. 

I had to wait for the hit before I found out. This all started because my webhost, BlueHost, didn’t secure my data on their networks. They told me they did, but it wasn’t true. The reality was that they were actively selling my data and information over and over and over again. The security sweeps to protect my information that they promised, and that I had been paying for each year turned out to be a lie as well. I found that out when my accounts were hacked. They actually told me this happens and that I could get it taken care of by purchasing another service from one of their partners. So essentially, what they meant by that was…

"HaHa sucker. You believed us and we got you."

Anyhow, that got me looking into another hosting provider, but this time I did my research. What I found out though, SHOCKED ME TO MY FOUNDATION.

As it turns out, most of the big name webhosts that we see and hear about every day do the EXACT SAME THINGS. They steal their client’s information and sell it to anyone who will buy it. Not only that, but they don’t even care who is buying it. Cyber-Criminals don’t have to hack you when they can just buy the key to your house.  So what was I to do?

Well the first thing I did was decide I needed to host my own information myself, and have full control over who can access my data. Secondly, I needed to encrypt, protect, and hide my data and my server from bad actors out there trying to take advantage of me, my business, and my clients. Thirdly, I figured out that I am not alone in this terrible circumstance.

I found the best VPN service available, after exhaustive research. They currently have an great deal going on right now if you want to use them to protect your assets as well. Click here to see their latest offer.

I also decided I needed to offer my new webhosting to other business owners like myself who have been burned as well by the lies of the big hosts.

That’s why I created WebHost Rocket. At Webhost Rocket, we NEVER sell your data. Not to an ad agency. Not to another business. Not to a competitor. Not to a criminal waiting to destroy your business. NEVER. It’s as simple as that. 

Additionally, security, reliability, and speed are our biggest concerns, and in that order. We provide our clients the ability to create and retrienve regular backups on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. We have DDOS protection to protect your system from infiltration, Modification Security features, and more so that you can feel safe knowing your data and customer data is safe.

Our networks employ more than 800 servers housed in facilities right here in the USA, not India or Pakistan. These servers are continuously maintained and upgraded with the highest safeguards and equipment for the best possible performance. We also have redundant systems in place which we can switch a server to so that your site stays on line during times of trouble or maitenance. The bottom line is security and performance for your business.

That’s why I called it Business-Level WebHosting. The best part is, you can get it, along with the added piece of mind that comes from knowing your system and data are adequately protected (for REAL), for the low price of just $10/mo. Now, obviously you won’t get access to everything we can offer for just $10, but our plans start there, and you still get far more protection (even with the base plan) than with the other guys.

Mindset of Abundance: 4 Steps to a Perfect Life


The Miller Mindset: Episode # 0021

Welcome to “The Miller Mindset” podcast, a weekly podcast where we explore the power of positive thinking and its impact on our lives. Join me, Chris Miller, as we dive into such topics as goal- setting, overcoming obstacles, and developing a growth mindset. If you’re looking to improve your life and reach your full potential, then this podcast is for you. Don’t miss an episode. Be sure to subscribe today! On today’s show, we will be discussing how to cultivate a mindset of abundance. So let’s Get Into It!

Here are 5 action steps that can help you keep your head in the Last week, I told you I would give you 3 action steps to make sure you always get what you want, but I’m going to do you 1 better today. I’m going to give you 4. So turn up your volume, and tune in your earns, because here we go.

#1 – Focus on the Positive

It is often said that what you think, you become. This is also true when it comes to abundance. If you believe that you can achieve abundance, you will be more likely to find success in your life. Cultivating a mindset of abundance means shifting your focus from what you lack to what you have. By doing this, you can start to appreciate the abundance that surrounds you and attract more abundance into your life.

To cultivate a mindset of abundance, you should start by focusing on the positive. Instead of dwelling on your shortcomings or what you don’t have, take time each day to reflect on the things that you do have. This could be something as simple as being grateful for your health, your family, or your job. The more you focus on the positive aspects of your life, the more content and satisfied you will feel.

#2 – Set Clear Goals

Another important step in cultivating a mindset of abundance is to set clear goals for yourself. This will help you to stay focused on what you want to achieve. It is important to set goals that are realistic and achievable, but also challenging enough to keep you motivated. For example, if your goal is to start your own business, break it down into smaller achievable steps such as researching the market, developing a business plan, finding funding, and so on. Doing this will help you focus your energies on the task instead of getting overwhelmed by the larger series of tasks that lay before you.

#3 – Take Action

In addition to setting goals, it is also important to take action towards achieving them. This means being proactive and taking steps to make your goals a reality. For example, attending networking events, learning new skills or seeking mentorship to improve your chances of success are great steps toward achieving your goals, but they don’t move the needle. Going out there and offering your product or service to a potential customer does. Get on the phones. Take a trip to a prospect’s office. Introduce yourself to someone and then tell them how your product or service can help them fill a need they have and ask them for the order. These are action items that will move that needle, and you need to do them every day. By taking action, you are not only moving closer to your goals, but you are also building confidence in yourself and your abilities which will lead you to that abundant life.

#4 – Surround Yourself with Positive People.

Finally, it is important to surround yourself with positive people who support and encourage you. Having a strong support system can make all the difference when it comes to achieving your goals. When you surround yourself with people who believe in you and your ability to achieve abundance, you will be more likely to succeed. One of the things I did to accomplish this in my own life was to get setup with a network marketing group that not only meets with one another regularly, but who also shares a lot of the same business tools, experience, and goals. This is especially cool for me because I get to see how each of them experience these similar things in their business from their own completely unique perspective. This helps me as well because I learn from what their thoughts, experiences, and goals are and form ideas and even new product lines every now and then just be listening for common issues they are facing, experiences that they to be sharing, or by the occasional wow moment of insight that comes to me based on a comment that is shared with the group.

Success is No Accident

Whatever you want in life, you can get it with the right mindset, training, and direction.

Well, that’s our show for today folks. Cultivating a mindset of abundance requires staying focused on the positive, setting clear goals, taking action, and surrounding yourself with positive people. By adopting these habits, you can attract more abundance into your life and achieve the success that you desire. Remember, what you think, you become, so believe in yourself and the abundance that you can create in your life.

It also has a lot to do with having the right mindset. Entrepreneurs who cultivate a growth-oriented mindset are more likely to achieve extraordinary results. Having a mindset that:

  • embraces challenges as opportunities
  • views setbacks and failures as learning opportunities

is essential for the successful entrepreneur. If you want to learn more about how mindset plays an integral role in your business and career life, check out our other podcast: “The Miller Mindset” here.

Mindset alone won’t get you to the finish line however. Intentional mechanics are also crucial for business growth. From targeted marketing strategies to streamlined operational processes, these mechanics are like gears that drive growth. To optimize business mechanics, entrepreneurs should identify key performance indicators (KPIs) that align with their growth goals. This ensures that actions are intentional and aligned with the business’s growth trajectory.

The synergy between intentional mindsets and mechanics is undeniable. By fusing a growth-oriented mindset with intentional mechanics, entrepreneurs create a powerful recipe for success. Maintaining this equilibrium enables businesses to innovate effectively, adapt swiftly to market changes, and drive sustainable growth.

The Miller Mindset: Triumph Over Your Limiting Beliefs


The Miller Mindset: Episode # 0020

Welcome to “The Miller Mindset” podcast, a weekly podcast where we explore the power of positive thinking and its impact on our lives. Join me, Chris Miller, as we dive into such topics as goal- setting, overcoming obstacles, and developing a growth mindset. If you’re looking to improve your life and reach your full potential, then this podcast is for you. Don’t miss an episode. Be sure to subscribe today! On today’s show, we will be exploring the topic of limiting beliefs and how they can hold back business growth.

Limiting beliefs are thoughts or attitudes that we hold about ourselves that limit our potential. They can be deeply ingrained and difficult to overcome, but they are not impossible to overcome.

Here are 5 action steps that can help you keep your head in the game and overcome limiting beliefs:

#1 – Identify your limiting beliefs.

One way to start overcoming limiting beliefs is to identify them. Take a moment to reflect on what beliefs you hold about yourself and your business that may be holding you back. Are they based on past experiences or fears? Take another moment to reflect on what beliefs you hold about your business that may be holding the business’ growth back as well. Try to really identify them, and their root cause. Are they based on past experiences or fears?

#2 – Challenge your limiting beliefs.

Once you have identified your limiting beliefs, it’s important to challenge them. Ask yourself if they are really true or if they are just assumptions. For example, if you believe that you’re not good enough to succeed, challenge that belief by looking at your accomplishments and recognizing your strengths. Use the success train model and build on those little successes to strengthen them and help you challenge negative beliefs that are standing in your way.

#3 – Seek support.

Another way to overcome limiting beliefs is to seek support. This can be in the form of a mentor, coach, an supportive community, or even all of the above combined together. Having someone to talk to and bounce ideas off of can help you gain a new perspective and move past your limiting beliefs. This can make all the difference when things have been going in the wrong direction.

#4 – Take action.

it’s important to take action. Overcoming limiting beliefs requires action and a willingness to step outside of your comfort zone. Set goals for yourself and take small steps towards achieving them, as with the success train exercise. Celebrate your successes and learn from your failures. I know what you are thinking though. Taking action is the hard part. It can be scary for some. That’s why we call it a comfort zone after all. . . because we feel safe there. But staying there isn’t keeping you safe. It’s keeping you compliant. Its keeping you shackled. Success doesn’t live in the comfortable places. It lives in the wild. It lives in the freedom of rolling the dice one more time when you are down to your last dollar. Success lives on the edge, and unless you are out there on the edge with it, you won’t get it. Take the action.

#5 – Stay positive.

When all else fails, stay positive. Self-pity is just not an attractive quality after all. Not only that, but when you are down, you are also less productive.

Have you ever found yourself struggling to make a decision, feeling stuck in analysis paralysis? We’ve all been there, but did you know that our mindset is the lens through which we view the world? It shapes our thoughts and beliefs, ultimately influencing the decisions we make in our lives. 

Our minds are almost never completely made up, after all, and through negotiation, a no can easily become a yes. Think about your kid when you take them to a store. How often did they ask for something, and you said no, but then they asked again a couple of more times and you bought it for them? That is negotiation. It is ingrained in the fabric of our being.

Children certainly aren’t going to school, listening to tapes, or reading books like “The Art of The Deal” by Donald Trump. They’re simply born with the understanding that they can win us over, and they often do. Negotiations can be tricky however, but with the right mindset, you can come out on top in your negotiations just as well as you kids do with you. 

First and foremost, it’s important to have an open mindset, ready to listen and to learn from your opponent in the negotiation. This means that you need to believe that you can improve and learn from your opponent’s and your own mistakes and miscalculations along the journey, and make no mistake about it; negotiation is a journey of discovery and action. 

In negotiations, being open to feedback and having a willingness to adapt your strategy as needed makes all the difference. It also means not letting setbacks discourage you, but rather seeing them as the opportunities that they really are. Remember this. . . in negotiations, everything is a learning experience. Everything, and all information exchanged along the way is an opportunity to close.

Alec Baldwin did a fantastic performance in the movie “Glenn Gary, Glenn Ross” back in 1992. I don’t know if you’re familiar with it, but that movie had some terrific performances from Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin, and Al Pacino as well. In the movie, which is also a great book by the way, Baldwin makes a long rant about closing, right after he starts off with “The Good News is You’re Fired. The Bad News is all of you’ve got one week to try and regain your jobs…”. If you haven’t seen the movie, I would encourage you to check it out. 

This moment that Baldwin shares with us is a perfect example of closing. He goes on and on about the ABCs (Always Be Closing) of sales, and I like it because his entire speech is a negotiation and closing tactic. His goal, of course, is to turn things around in that office and get it producing again. His solution, and the purpose of the “sale” he is trying to make with his negotiation is to put fear into their hearts that they will soon be out of work. 

The brilliance of it is in the approach that it is inevitable because it has already happened. It is in the past. So what can they do? 

Along this journey, they oppose and object. Jack Lemmon actually says “The Leads Are Weak.”, to which Baldwin scoffs at him and tells him he is weak. The negotiation goes on, as he dismantles all objections and excuses, putting them firmly in the grips of hopelessness. But then, reluctantly, and certainly seeming to be against his wishes, he gives them a small glimmer of hope. A single chance. A small opportunity for redemption. He closes the deal, and they get it. They buy the whole enchilada that he’s selling. That was an example of a good negotiation.

Another fantastic approach in negotiations is with a win-win mindset. This means looking for ways to create value for both parties involved, rather than just focusing on your own interests. When you approach negotiations in this way, you build trust and rapport with the other party, which can lead to more successful outcomes in the long run. 

Sticking with the movie theme that I apparently have going here, have you ever seen the movie “The Founder” with Michael Keaton? This is another terrific film, and itn it Keaton plays Ray Kroc who essentially stole the McDonalds business right out from under the original owners. How did he do it though? 

He did it through creating a win-win scenario to gain their trust. He told them, let me run the franchises for you, and I’ll devote my own time, and money to putting a McDonalds on every corner. He wins. They win. 

Later on, things changed, but he had established the trust, by that point which allowed him the opportunity to, as they say in baseball, “swing for the fences.”

So, how can you ensure that your negotiation skills beat your opponents’? Here are 2 sure-fire ways to do it. 

Number 1. Do your research.

Be prepared and know as much as you can about the other party’s interests, needs, and priorities. This will give you a better understanding of where they’re coming from and what they’re looking for. Knowledge is power, and if you know what they want, you can find a way to get what you want by helping them achieve it. 

Number 2. Practice active listening. 

This means really paying attention to what the other party is saying, and asking questions to clarify their position. When objections come up, recognize them for what they are, opportunities to close the deal. They are telling you what they need. Listen to them in these moments, and find a way to work with it. By doing this, you can find common ground and come up with solutions that work for both parties.

I’ll give you an example of how I used these 2 principals to close a $12MM deal through the art of a win-win closing scenario several years ago. I was in charge of a sales group for a tax tracking firm, and one of the salespeople on my team had been working with one particular bank for more than 2 years and had never closed the deal. I read about this as I was reading through the logs and I asked her about it. She told me they couldn’t get budget approval through their Board of Directors. OK. That’s understandable. But why are they still talking with her 2 year later? I thought there had to be a reason, but she couldn’t answer that so I said, “Get them on the phone.” 

So we conferenced with the VP and the head of mortgage loans for the Bank and I interrupted the conversation at one point to ask, “Can I just ask, what the heck are we even still talking for?” 

The silence was deafening. But then it ended. The prospect said, “Well I love your product and think it would be perfect for us. I just can’t get the rest of them to see what I see.” 

Boom! There it was; the opening I needed to close this deal. It was right there the whole time. She could have closed it up a year ago if she had kept an open mind and listened for the clues. He told me what he needed. He needed the other Board Members to see the benefit, and she hadn’t built the value to demonstrate $12MM worth of benefit to them. She missed it, and that can happen, but I didn’t miss it. I immediately jumped on that opportunity and I asked him what his largest pain point that our product would address for him would be. He told me and then I asked if we could re-write this deal to just service that one set of problem loans, could he get it done? That would give him the proof he needed to get approval for the whole department win the next budget meeting came up.

He loved the idea, saw it as a win for the bank, and told me he could approve that deal on his own because he had signature authority up to the $1MM we were negotiating for. We closed the deal with a new million dollar contract on the books, and a very happy new client. He closed the deal with security for his bank and less stress on his team, plus, he now had the ammunition he would need to secure budget approval for his department in the next meeting. Win-Win. The following fall, he sent us a signed agreement for the full $12MM, right on schedule, and with a big thank you.

Conclusion

Well, that’s our show for today folks. I hope you enjoyed the show today, and perhaps even got something useful out of it. Remember, negotiations are all about mindset. If you approach them with an open and win-win mindset, and you do your research and you incorporate active listening, you’ll be well on your way to success in your future negotiations.

Using AI and Chat GPT to Grow Home Based Business
Making smart use of Chat GPT to build home-based business

So, you want to make smart use of Chat GPT and other AI tech to build your home-based business and help it grow to staggering heights. Here are some tips to getting it right.

One thing I will tell you is that when it comes to speaking with a computer, you need to be specific. AI is super advanced, and it can draw conclusions based on the information you provide, but you have to provide that information first. If you provide too little information, you’ll get your answers, but they will be more generic. If you provide more detailed information your answers will be more perfected and authentic for your purpose.

Think about it as a conversation, but a transactional one. You give some information, and you get some back. Then you give some more, and you get some more back. The whole thing is a series of progressive prompting of questions and answers until you have your finished product that you were trying to get.

Have a look at the following example of some questions I asked Chat GPT this morning to develop a strategy for my business marketing and authority development. This should help you understand the depth you might want to take with your own inquiry to get the results you are looking for.  

Step 1: – Define Your Goal

  1. I want to (insert achievement or goal here) in the (insert category here) for (insert desired marketspace here). Can you give me a step-by-step guided action plan to achieve this within (insert desired timeframe here)?
  2. I think I want to focus my niche on (insert target niche here). Can you help me study existing influencers currently in this niche to understand their content, engagement strategies, and audience demographics?
  3. I need to think about my content strategy and branding for this endeavor. Can you help me craft a clear and compelling brand message that defines my unique value proposition in this space?
  4. Can you help me write this by giving me a list of questions I can answer for you that will give you the information you need from me to make a compelling brand message that will define my unique value proposition.
  5. OK, thank you. I will now answer all 11 of these questions one at a time. When I have completed my answers, will you be able to write this for me?

ChatGPT Reply

Absolutely, I’ll be here to help you craft your brand message once you’ve answered all the questions. Feel free to provide your answers one at a time, and I’ll assist you in creating a compelling and personalized brand message that captures your unique value proposition. Whenever you’re ready, just let me know!

Step 2: Provide some insight into you

Answer all of the questions. This is done for 2 reasons. First, it gives the program something to work with and develop from based on your personal beliefs and history. Second, it provides the program with valuable insight into the way you think, write, and operate so that it can tailor the writing to sound more like you. I did this one at a time, inputting my answers individually and watching as Chat GPT changed the narrative to include information for each question over time. After all questions are answered, read through the final product and see how it sounds. In my case, something about it was off, so I kept prompting some changes until I got it the way I wanted it. You may choose to just re-write it to make it more your voice, but since the machine was using several writing examples of my tone, thought processes, and mannerisms to use as a guide in the writing style, my voice was pretty much there already.

See the example re-write prompts I used below:  

  1. I think this is a great start but, while reading it, the word confidence seems to show up too often and it doesn’t sound right. Can you reword it a bit to correct that?
  2. This one is better from the repetition standpoint, but now it includes a lot of big words that some people find hard to understand. Ronald Reagan was known as the “Great Communicator” because he asked his speech writers to write every speech in a tone and manner that an 8th grader could understand and relate to it. I like that concept and wonder if you could re-write this again, taking that concept into account? 

Step 3: Find a Plan of Approach

  1. Based on the information I have provided you so far, what would you suggest should be my defined target niche?
  2. Based on the information I have provided you already, and market information about the existing influencers in this niche, what would you suggest should be my content, engagement strategies, audience interests, and audience demographics?
  3. Now, what would you suggest for my content themes, formats (videos, blog posts, infographics), and posting frequency?
  4. Help me select 1-2 social media platforms where my target audience is most active and aligned with these content format preferences.
  5. Should I create a (enter social platform here) group and, if so, what should I call it?
  6. What are the top 10 (enter social platform here) hashtags that would fit my purpose for getting in front of the right prospective members for my group?
  7. What suggestions would you recommend I include to maximize exposure and engagement based on my specific audience niche for this endeavor?

Step 4: EXECUTE

Now you should have a well defined and clear action plan for achieving your marketing goals.

$75,000 FINE – Business Impact of Failure to Comply with Web Accessibility Laws

Web Accessibility refers to the practice of making websites and web applications accessible to users with disabilities. This includes individuals with visual, auditory, physical, and cognitive impairments. In recent years, web accessibility has become increasingly important for businesses to consider. Not only is it the right thing to do, but in the United States, its the law!

A few reasons why web accessibility is helpful.

One of the main reasons why web accessibility is important for businesses is because it allows you to reach a wider audience. By making your website more accessible, you are ensuring that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can access your content and services. This can help to increase your customer base and ultimately lead to greater profits.

Another important reason to consider web accessibility is because it can help to improve your website’s search engine optimization (SEO). Search engines like Google and Bing prioritize websites that are accessible to everyone. By implementing accessibility features, such as alt text for images and captions for videos, you are improving your website’s SEO and making it more likely that potential customers will find your site. Not only that, but certain accessibility programs used by disabled patrons actively filter out non-accessible listings from the search engine results that appear during searches. In other words, your business simply will not show at all to these potential customers, giving your competitors an advantage.

Web Accessibility helps your brand image!

Web accessibility also helps to create a positive brand image for your business. By demonstrating that you are committed to making your website accessible, you are showing that you care about your customers and are willing to go the extra mile to ensure that everyone can access your content and services. This can help to build trust with your customers and improve your reputation in the marketplace.

By contrast, not being web accessible can have a negative impact on a business’s brand image. For example, if a person with a disability is unable to access a website’s content or services, they may view the business as uncaring or insensitive to their needs. This can result in a loss of trust and reputation in the marketplace. Additionally, if determined that your website is not compliant with web accessibility standards, your business may be subject to legal action and fines up to $75,000 for first time offenders, and more than $150,000 for repeat offenders.

In Conclusion

Web accessibility is an essential consideration for any business that wants to succeed in today’s digital landscape. By implementing accessible features on your website, you can reach a wider audience, improve your SEO, and create a positive brand image for your business. So if you haven’t already, now is the time to start thinking about how you can make your website more accessible for everyone.
