by Dr. Jeffrey Lant. Author’s program note. It has just gone 7 a.m. here in Cambridge. It is one of  those precious summer Sundays when the good people, the indispensable  people of the land are engaging in time sanctified slowness… the universal  desire to refresh, renew, recharge, recreation the order of the day, not revolution,  not even here in the citadel of revolution. The day promises to be sultry, kissed by sunshine, so choice that even fervid  movers and shakers, their every move calculated, deliberate, serious sit down  for a moment and allow themselves to be touched by the simple majesty of a pink  hedge rose, enriching every passer-by with the wanton liberality of its insinuating,  insistent, evocative and always joyous scent. But here’s the important thing. Two years ago these flowers were not to be found in my neighborhood park,  the Common.

They are only there now because one person decided to make it  a better and more soothing place by taking roots from another place alive with their  radiance, planting them in dead of night, thereafter giving them the water and  the tending required. A man. His task. His secret… and a happiness that comes  from making the world, even in such a small matter as this, a better place. You may guess who this horticultural benefactor was; I will neither confirm nor  deny. But I tell you this: the good folks of Louisville, Kentucky applaud such initiative  by emulating it… and this is the point of this article. That if there is to be change, you  must designate yourself as the change agent, selecting the work you must do to  change a world in constant need of revitalizing and thoughtful revisions.

That is why for this article, I selected one of the most moving songs about change  ever written, not merely on the need for change, but the need for you to get up and help  make it happen. The song which you can find now in any search engine is “A Change Is  Gonna Come”. It was written and recorded by Sam Cooke in 1964. It has been called  one of the most inspiring anthems of the Civil Rights Movement. And so it is… but we  have need of it now for so many other purposes. What good are anyone’s civil rights  when we as a species are daily assaulting, by means various and pernicious, what  we must have to survive? “Oh, there been times that I thought I couldn’t last for long/  But now I  think I’m able to carry on/ It’s been a long, a long time coming  But I know a change gonna come, oh yes it will.” Thus sayeth the folks of the Louisville Interdenominational Male Chorus, making  a difference, note by melodious note, for over 26 years now. Here is their story…  and it’s well worth the hearing. What must be done to bring about beneficial change.

The world we inhabit today will not be the world we live in tomorrow. It is not just  that the verities we knew so well yesterday are in the process of transformation;  it is the verities of today which will not be the verities of tomorrow, whether we like it  or not. The first task, therefore, of mankind in general and each of us in particular, is to move  with change, keeping in step with the developing evolution of everything, for everything  is evolving, embracing as much as we can with optimism and joy rather than bemoan  and bewail the loss of the “good old days”, the passing hours we lived in just the other  day, precious in our mind’s eye but gone, gone forever, replaced and irrevocably so by  the change that is gonna come, the change that is, after all, nothing more than a bridge  to the change that grows out of the change, great and small, we make today. It is easy in these circumstances to feel insignificant, a person of no consequence,  no meaning, less even than a grain of sand in the midst of infinite time, space, and  eternity. Such a realization can easily lead to dismay, despair, and  demoralization. But this would be wrong… for the stupendous challenge of our life is to craft our  planet and every feature that distinguishes it, the goal perfection, the objective  crucial, the task glorious because it involves us all and calls upon us all to act, for  without the act there cannot be the achievement.

If the goal was not monumental and demanding, we should be cheated. We, all of  us, were created to rise above, then rise above again, our every sinew and muscle  required for the task at hand, a task that calls us from the pedestrian affairs  of daily life to be and act like the children of God that we are and must never forget,  no matter the difficulty of the road we must each trod… for this is the only road worth  traveling. How change comes. On August 29, 1983 a small group of reverend fathers assembled at the First  Congregational Methodist Church, their numbers few, their work necessary,  their steadfast determination notable and essential. They would make music,  holy music, thereby uplifting the people, disseminating the good news… and from  monies raised through their musical and charitable endeavors, they would help  as many meritorious students as possible attend institutions of higher learning,  education necessary if these students were to rise above their circumstances  and, in their turn, assist others not yet as fortunate as they now were. Thus from the First Congregational Church, Greater Salem Baptist Church, Little  Flock Baptist Church, Mount Nebo Baptist Church, and Portland Memorial Baptist  Church The Interdenominational Male Chorus was founded and a new light lit for  the churches, their pastors, their parishioners, the great city of Louisville, and mankind,  for a good idea that makes life better is never merely local and parochial but a good  deed and high example for the world at large which can only advance by such means,  a fact we can never forget. Two revered gentlemen, Brother Harry Brown and Brother Alfonso Vance, were  honored by their honorable colleagues; assigned to protect and foster the happy  idea and take particular responsibility for its success… and so they did. Thus they  acted from the first day as all the truly great people on this Earth have ever done;  they started, one foot after another, minute by minute, one day at a time, so are  the greatest goals achieved. Here was their unbeatable agenda: They committed… for without commitment there can never be greatness. They did more than their share… for change is always carried by the few… for the  good of the many.

They urged the good people of Louisville to join them… for it is the undeniable  fact that those doing good have a responsibility to recruit those who might also  do good… if only they were asked to help. And asked again… and again… for you  cannot achieve maximum results if you ever take no for an answer. They listened to excuses. They didn’t make them. When you work with people  you hear people’s excuses. The excuses which diminish progress, or even stop  it all together: “I can’t…”; “I’m sorry but…”; “I forgot…”, “I’ll be your best worker — next  time” and all the rest. People become leaders because they disdain the making of  excuses as unworthy of them and their important mission. They covered for those who said they would do a certain thing, then failed to do it…  forcing the true believers, the people who nurtured and cared for the idea, to do more…  and to do it with the smile that was often under the circumstances deeply difficult  to summon, but always there notwithstanding, for heart is always part of the kit of  every one who works for change.

For such a one there will always be heart… and  at just the precious moment most necessary. That is what is meant by the old  adage, “God helps those who help themselves”. No one epitomizes this more  that William Buck, fighter, survivor, inspirer, man of the  cloth , my friend. Brief history of a man of courage, tenacity, faith and resolution. Of the many things I could tell you about William Buck, this one reaches the core of  the matter. He woke up this day in pain. He will go about his important business today  in pain. And he will go to bed tonight in pain. Yet this pain will not define this or any other  day; rather his determination to continue to effect the most positive of changes will. He  has pain; pain does not have him.That is the crucial difference and the reason his story  is worth attending to far beyond the confines of Louisville’s Greater Shepherd Church,  (which he founded) and the New Jerusalem Baptist Church, where he acts as Assistant  Pastor, in his “retirement” years. Some of you will have been born with debilitating back problems like Pastor Buck.  Have they defeated… or empowered you? Some of you will have worked the most demanding and laborious jobs, the kind of  job that progressively destroys even the strongest of bodies. Pastor Buck did. Has it  defeated… or empowered you? Some of you will have become so enfeebled and weak that one day you missed  your step and fell helpless to the floor, all alone, no one to call, no means of calling  them… and so spent hour after excruciating hour alone with only your fears and the  name of the Lord to comfort and sustain you.

Did the experience defeat…or  empower you? William Buck was cobbled together with titanium in his back… and  unequalled resolution in his mind. The Lord was his shepherd and he rose to the  task. Pastor William Buck was tested by such experiences… was challenged by such  experiences… was born again because of such experiences… and so because of  such infirmities, their constant pain, and the faith they tested and thereby helped  secure, he moved to God, a grateful child of the Lord, a man who learned to lean  on Jesus where he found everything he needed to rise above, rise above, rise above  and bring the good news to the people, particularly in the songs sung by the Louisville Interdenominational Male Chorus, his special cause, his particular joy. Hallelujah! Envoi. This is more than a story about one particular man in one particular place.

It is instead  a story about the individual commitment, responsibility and constant work that have  built thousands and thousands of worthy organizations across the Great Republic.  Select one of them as your special cause and learn the joy of giving like the good  people of the Louisville Interdenominational Male Chorus, currently in 15 churches,  have done, for they in general and William Buck in particular are worthy models  of what we can do when we put our minds to the task and work together to achieve  it. Dedication.

The author, with great pleasure, dedicates this article to all the people who have  used song as the means to advance the favored young people of Louisville and  especially to Mrs. William Buck, Bulah Mae, and their two children, Lakesha (37) and  Contrallo (32). These are his rod and his staff, nothing likely without them, but with  them the great change that gonna come, that he works for every day of his blessed  life.

How To Make Friends And Influence Customers With Social Media Marketing

Marketing your business through social media is quickly becoming a necessity rather than an option. If you’d like to see how this can positively affect your business, keep reading for great ideas on how you can utilize these online platforms to market and advertise your company, product or business.
Hashtags are a great tool. Use them to promote your conferences, special events, products, and brands. Hashtags not only allow you to market these things, but they will also let you listen to what others are saying about you. This can be a great way to both promote your business and get feedback from your audience.
Be interactive on your Facebook page. If all you ever do is post, post, and post some more, then people will get tired of you quickly. If you ask interesting questions, engage consumers in conversation, and respond to their posts, then your posts will become more appealing every time.
Create a blog for your business with links to your other social media identities. If you have a blog that is continually being updated with new and interesting content, you will attract repeat visitors. Including links to Facebook and Twitter will make it easier for potential customers to follow you, and you will maintain a presence in their computerized world.
Use Facebook to make friends and properly market your company. Make sure you don’t start your page outright as a business ad. People are more likely to be interested in your product or services if you post items and events about your company in a friendly manner that doesn’t make your “friends” feel like you are spamming them. Remember, they may be your future customers, but in the meantime, treat them like friends.
Consider hiring a freelance writer to create interesting content for your tweets, Facebook pages, and blog posts. This will allow you time to focus your energies on growing your business, and it is especially important if writing is not one of your best skills. You should still provide the topics and proofread everything before it is posted.
If you are using Facebook for your marketing needs, make sure you understand the difference between a profile page and a fan page. A profile page is for personal use and fan pages are for companies. If you fail to comply with these rules, you are risking the chance of Facebook shutting down your company’s page.
Fill out as much information as you can about your company on your Facebook page. Don’t make it feel impersonal; put that little extra effort and write a small bio and upload a company logo and pictures from your company that pertain to meetings, parties, promotions etc. Help future customers understand what your company is all about so that it doesn’t seem to be just a logo on the web.
Taking your business to the next level requires a new wave of marketing efforts that you have not previously tried. Social media marketing could very easily be this new wave that you are searching for. If you use the tips and suggestions here, you can find success in your new marketing efforts.

“IN SHORT, THERE’S SIMPLY NOT A MORE CONGENIAL SPOT….” THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF JOHN F. KENNEDY’S INAUGURAL ADDRESS, JANUARY 20, 1961.

Picture

by Dr. Jeffrey Lant

Washington, D.C. loves commemorations, not least because every one who is anyone expects to have one for herself.

Thus, it was inevitable that the 50th anniversary of the inauguration of America’s 35th president should be celebrated with suitable doings and, of course, well honed and well considered words. And so they were.

In the grand rotunda of the Capitol, congressional officials, aides, and Kennedy family members listened in silence to the 14-minute, 1,355 word inaugural address which set the tone for the day and for the just installed administration, Camelot on the Potomac.

One of a handful of justifiably famous and influential presidential speeches.

Like all sentient Americans, I watched the original proceedings closely. I was just about to be 14, but the memories of this event are etched in my mind, whether because I truly recall them… or I have seen the various news clips played over and over again, images which now seem not so much historical, as legendary. Just as the Kennedys, as embodied in the wire-pulling patriarch, Joseph P. Kennedy, who had long schemed for this day, wanted.

The speech itself was a gem… and can and should be read carefully and recited frequently by all people in politics, government, non profit organizations, the military and for all wanting to know the secret to inciting words to move multitudes. Like it or not (and some did not), the world knew it was hearing a brand new voice.

Every word of this inaugural address reads as if it were written to be chiseled in stone, and so they are a few blocks from me where one of the famous lines after another is found in the most durable of stones, so that sun-bathing students and fatigued tourists (and perhaps others) can be well and truly reminded of this day, this man, these remarks… and of what America then was and can never be again.

But we must not assume, even in this most famous of speeches, that the multitudes and their text-messaging descendents remember these lines well and truly… so I shall take it upon myself to remind my fellow citizens of these; they are but a few of all the verbal diamonds revealed that day.

“Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe, in order to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

“If a free society cannot help the many who are poor, it cannot save the few who are rich.”

“So let us begin anew — remembering on both sides that civility is not a sign of weakness, and sincerity is always subject to proof. Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.”

“All this will not be finished in the first 100 days. Nor will it be finished in the first 1,000 days, nor in the life of this administration, nor even perhaps on our lifetime on this planet. But let us begin.”

“And so, my fellow Americans: ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”

The words were few, simple, ample to arrest the attention of the world. It was so very different from the Eisenhower administration and its dowdy, word-challenged leader now departing. That administration, whatever its achievements, suddenly seemed so very dated indeed.

Theodore Sorensen the necessary craftsman, behind the scenes, his ideas and discretion front and center.

Sorensen (deceased 2010) was just the kind of helper every ambitious individual needs, for he was bright, a man who understood just how great speeches and their important messages must be done… and self-effacing to a degree. He was content to be an unsung part of History… and so he loved and served, never revealing the many shattering confidences he knew… and which went to the grave with him.

Thus, Sorensen proved his allegiance to the Kennedys and their images were always more important than mere historical accuracy. His speech was designed to be important, memorable, the stuff of great dreams and greater glories. How pleased Sorensen must have been as he sat and listened, invisible, as his words seized the nation and the world. He was where history was made… for he composed it.

That night another legendary event took place, the new President’s inaugural ball… but the cynosure of every eye was the new, dazzling, alluring 31-year old First Lady, Jacqueline.

She knew a thing or two about style and presentation; so much so that she designed her ball ensemble herself with the help of Bergdorf Goodman’s Ethan Frankau. It was the beginning of the “Jackie Look”…. and it took hold like wild-fire, demanding of women (and their men) glamor, high style, sophistication, everything the Eisenhowers and their worn out officials conspicuously lacked.

And so, as Jack and Jackie made their rounds, ball by ball, as the worst winter in Washington in memory snarled traffic and tempers, the high spirited, triumphant Kennedys came; Camelot on the Potomac was born… and it stuck.

Camelot, of course, was the Broadway musical by Alan Jay Lerner (book and lyrics) and Frederick Loewe (music). It was based on one of the loveliest and most compelling of books, “The Once and Future King” by Theodore H. White, who seemed expressly invented for his role in legend making. In 1960 the much lauded musical hit Broadway; January 20, 1961 it hit the world, as this regal figure set up shop in the White House, with her exquisite taste and frosty hauteur.

Now it was 50 years later. Most of the great figures of this day and age are dead; brother-in-law Sargent Shriver leaving the stage aged 95, January 18, 2011, for perhaps the first time gaining a march on his famous relation.

The rest now look aged, infirm, burdened perhaps by their connection to events now fading and imperfectly remembered which have long held them hostage.

These are the Kennedys and perhaps it is significant that on the date of this 50th anniversary there was, for the first time in over 60 years, no Kennedy in the Congress. Boasts were made about how long that unnatural condition for them and for America would last… but it was harsh reality for now, as the New Frontier recedes and the dynasty shows the ravishments of time, which they once assaulted and shaped.

Social Media: the newest wave of internet marketing genius. If you need a new way to market your business, or perhaps you’ve been hearing a lot about these sites for businesses and you’d like an idea of how to go about it, then this article is for you. It will walk you through ways to use these sites to advertise your business, company or product.
When you set up your Twitter account, use a background that is suitable to your business. This may take a few extra minutes but, it will give your customers a sense of who you are. Remember that it is the attention to detail that sets apart the most successful in life.
When marketing your business on social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook, try to talk like a “person” rather than a “business”. People who use these sites are looking for personal interaction. If you can incorporate some of that into your marketing campaign, you will have an edge. Personal conversation that is humble, collaborative, and two-way in nature works best.
If social media marketing is new to you, here is a tip to help you understand it better. Think of the social media sites as places in which you can create a picture and a voice for your business. Your posts represent the viewpoint of your company. Consider social media as the way to communicate who you are, what your product is and what value your product has for potential customers.
Make it really easy for consumers to subscribe to your blog. Have a “subscribe” button easily located on your page, and make sure it is visible with an easy-to-read font and color. Also mMake the process of subscribing short and simple. If people can handle this task easily, they are more likely to do it. If more individuals subscribe, then business will increase.
Ask people to “LIKE” your Facebook page everywhere. Ask on your Facebook page, on your website, in any advertising, and in your brick and mortar stores. The more individuals “LIKE” your page, the more they will spread information about your brand. This is a great way to increase business as well as your SEO rankings.
Social media marketing is all about building good communication skills. All the social media sites are based on conversations of one form or another. Use these sites to engage potential customers by telling them what you have to offer, making pertinent posts and displaying prominent links to your product pages. Try asking your visitors questions about what they are looking for. You will build relationships by exchanging valuable information and be rewarded by increased sales for your efforts.
Consider opening an account on the growing business oriented site LinkedIn. This site is designed for business professionals to communicate with one another and their customers. It has incredible features that include ways for satisfied customers to recommend you to others, increasing your reputation and credibility. You can also join conversations relevant to your business interests.
There are a ton of different ways you can use these sites to move your company forward. This article has shown you some of the best ways to get yourself set up and start using the features these sites offer, but you will want to keep researching and learning as they change and grow.

Facebook Marketing For Beginners How To Make The Most Of Social Media

Most people in modern Western societies have used Facebook for entertainment, personal or business purposes. It’s hard to argue that Facebook can’t or won’t enhance your business or service. Become acquainted with Facebook marketing and use it to your advantage by reading the tips in this article and creating a page today!
If you are going to post any links on your page, make sure that they have a description accompanying them. You want to engage readers, and this is a good way to do that. This makes it very likely people will leave comments and possibly start a discussion on the information you are posting, which means people will have something new to share with others.
Make your profile page professional. Since you are hoping for people to find you on Facebook, your profile page may be the first impression that people have of your business. By making it professional, viewers will see your company as a professional one. Make sure you use proper grammar and spelling.
Don’t think of Facebook like a newspaper. It’s not about pushing information out to people. It’s about communicating an building strong relationships. If you tend to announce instead of communicate, then you’re in jeopardy of alienating a lot of your potential fans. Talk with them, not at them. That will improve your marketing.
Share other content from other platforms on your Facebook page. Does your business have a website? A blog? A YouTube channel? Any time you upload new content related to your business, make sure it shows up on your Facebook Page as well. People are much more likely to be visiting Facebook the day you upload a new video than they are to be visiting your business’s YouTube channel.
Don’t clutter your Facebook marketing pages with too much bling. Although you want it eye-catching and appealing, you don’t want to overwhelm people with more information than they can process. A simple page that looks clean, colorful and is easy on the eyes will be far more effective than one that screams to the reader.
Create infographics. Infographics are a step up from pictures, and include information and relevant information that can be useful to your target market. When you create an infographic, it is even more likely to be shared by others because the information is valuable. This raises your profile, but it also makes you look like an expert.
Don’t focus on getting the most fans possible. Yes, everyone loves a big number, but if you’ve got 10,000 fans who never respond to you, then what’t the benefit? That’s 10,000 anchors pulling down your potential marketing. Your goal should be as many engaged and communicative fans as possible. Approach your marketing with that in mind.
If you have a Facebook page for your business or service already, you might not be using it in a way that can render the most benefit. Make sure that you are using this amazing marketing tool to the best of your ability. Remember the tips in this article and apply them as soon as you can!

by Dr. Jeffrey Lant.
Author’s program note. It was Lisa Martiniuk, one of the hard-working Senior Monitors who are such an important part of keeping worldprofit.com going strong, who first, and with a dollop of insinuation and pleading in her voice, suggested I write something a little lighter than my recent fare. And so I switched from the killing fields of Asia and Super-Typhoon Haiyan and the continuing self-afflicted wounds of the Right Honorable Barack. I would write, I vowed, about being a (new) senior citizen and I would (unlike my carping colleagues) forego the cheap shots and wide-ranging irritants of every kind; instead to write an article of uplift and bliss about the phase of life where I now find myself and shall remain for the hourly diminishing — and therefore the more precious — balance remaining.
To achieve this (frankly challenging) objective, I shall check the following words and attitudes at the door, along with my new cane. They may otherwise, you see, get in the way of my long-developing story. For whilst I am undoubtedly a new member of the club, I was not born yesterday. Without particularly noticing it, I have been studying senior citizens closely, ever since I had eyes in my head or the wit to discern what I saw…
Now, here are the words and attitudes I shall forego (just for the present, mind)… ornery, stubborn, adamant, pigheaded, mulish, inexorable, not to be put down, inflexible, immutable, peremptory, always right, never wrong… Further, and as a notable mark of my bona fides, I am turning my striking “Don’t Tread on Me” flag to the wall, but only for this single occasion, no precedent conceded or intended, buster. Have you got that?
Music.
For this voyage into the brand new land, I have selected a tune as quirky and idiosyncratic as most everyone is. It’s the score from the 1989 film “Driviing Miss Daisy” starring Morgan Freeman as Hoke Colburn with Jessica Tandy superbly cast as Miss Daisy. Winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture (Tandy the Best Actress), it is a film every senior citizen should be compelled to watch over and over again, especially if we epitomize the words and attributes listed above, as all us old folks do, specializing in the surly, churlish, selfish and (never forget this) the faultlessly clairvoyant and omniscient.
Go now to any search engine and find Hans Zimmer’s theme, deceptively simple and artless. Such songs become, if we let them, our favorite and most evocative songs of all, as this one has surely become for me. When you find yourself whistling, you’ll know it’s captured your heart, too, no matter how irascible you are. Miss Daisy, after all, was supremely irascible, too, until she permitted herself to thaw and (literally) enjoy the ride.
Driving Dr. Lant.
I was never very interested in trucks, tractors, or cars, much less their labyrinthine operating systems, tailor made, so it has always seemed to me, for maximum confusion and epic sessions of punishing frustration. I have a mechanical aptitude at the 5th percentile; translation, I can hardly tie my shoe laces… and whilst this is a perfectly valid and understandable excuse, it is of limited utility in the face of boisterous adolescent masculinity and the screwdrivers they love of every diabolical kind and type. I can feel the unwonted sweat of those trying days still dripping down my baffled face. And that is why I have Ame Joseph as my driver. I invariably call him “Mr. Joseph.” He calls me “Doctor Lant.” We have known each other for many years now, and so these formalities are these days a tradition, not a requirement.
How we met.
I am, like most people, afflicted with some degree of claustrophobia. Quite frankly, I intensely dislike being stuffed into anything, especially the back seats of taxis, which seem tailor made for panic attacks. Getting me into them, though I am the perfectly normal size of 5 foot ten inches and 165 pounds, often commands a shoe horn, with me twisting, squirming, unable to move. This, as you may well imagine, maddens and affronts me. It is, however, a stark reality for urban based folks like me who do not drive and rely on the never-clean-inside-or-out taxis with colorful names like yellow, red and green; the reality gray, mud spattered and grim.
Thus, when fate intervened (it had to be fate not merely random chance) and I found myself getting into a cab at the Sheridan Commander Hotel, a cab that was clean, hardly a speck of terra firma traveling with us, even the windows washed to clarity, I didn’t hesitate. “Give me your card, I shall be calling you again.” And that is how God works in the city….
The narrowing of life, to be fought with rage and determination.
Now… turn up that quirky theme music from the score of “Driving Miss Daisy,” because you see, we are going out you and I… and Mr. Joseph is taking us, for of course you’ll be traveling with me, my way… it goes like this. “Mr. Joseph, are you free in 20 minutes?” And thus begins that most important of travels… the one that whisks you to a new reality, comfortably, efficiently, with just the necessary touch of condescension, for we have earned that, haven’t we, over these many years and the thousand roles we have played from the very moment of conception.
Mr. Joseph calls me when he is 4 minutes away (note that precise number). I always say I am ready to go just then…. but I almost never am. There is just one more phone call to make… one more thing I really must peruse. But at last even I am ready, cap a jaunty angle, silver buttons gleaming on my coat… and the cane left behind, the cane I so recently acquired, have used not at all. Its time will come, even I know that… but not today, not today…. Today we have each other for I have ever been of an affectionate disposition, never hoarding that which exists to be abundantly, even profligately shared in the hope that such excess will be given to me… and I am glad to say it generally is.
As we glide along the highly polished flagstone floor in the lobby, Mr. Joseph glides above, along the newly paved streets, brick sidewalks perfectly tailored, all marks that I live in that boom town of Cambridge, where being the hub of the Internet means citizens like me live better and better for less and less, an astonishing situation in this year of our Lord 2013, and one that makes me light up with smile and song with or without the slightest provocation… as when Mr. Joseph, suitably attired in black, is standing ready at the door of his Lincoln Town Car, prepared to supply supremely expert service.
Thus is one of the great problems of aging, immobility and shrinking vistas, superbly solved. I can go hither and yon, the world still full of adventures large and small, still expanding, not closing in on me, prospects dwindling, the beginning of the beginning of the end. All this, too, has been postponed, perhaps forever and therein lies the greatest bliss of all, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness still my birthright and objective, eminently possible, not just memories of days long gone and bittersweet.
Don’t keep your future waiting…
So, now get in. “The last of life for which the first was made” is waiting for you just around the corner. And despite every pain, each imperfection, whatever you have lost, whatever you fear losing next you are still that charmer of old, an eye full of mischief, capable of astonishing capers…. the most outrageous and notable not even dreamed yet, much less exhausted. You, diminished as you claim to be, are still the radiant being who can, given your ardent permission, awe us all, and most of all awe yourself. Make today the day you do…it’s been far too long since you recognized you are the finest creation of your life… and it’s time the world got the privilege of seeing your masterpiece in every glorious aspect. Right now. Don’t waste another minute… even if you have to use the cane…

It is hard to argue with results, and that is why video marketing has gained such a massive following in recent years. The thing to keep in mind, however, is that without sufficient knowledge of the topic, it can be hard to make it work. Study the advice that follows and make video marketing a part of your strategy today.
Watching successful viral videos is the best way to get an idea of what makes a video popular. Stay up to date with new trends, check social networks and various sites your target audience loves and put together a list of characteristics you recognize in the viral videos you see.
When you are using video marketing it is important to keep your content interesting. If your video is dull then people will probably not watch the entire thing or recommend it to their friends. Make your message clear and engaging to your audience. Imagine you are watching your own video as a consumer.
Use events such as expos and trade shows to interview experts. You can then post the interviews on your site as a resource for your viewers. Ask the types of questions that your audience would ask and try to keep the interview as interesting as you can to hold your viewer’s attention.
Help potential customers find your videos by using strong keywords. If you have a YouTube channel, you should take the time to write descriptions for all your videos and share links to your main site. Choose strong keyword’s potential customers are likely to use when they look up videos on topics related to your products.
Find the right person for the video. Perhaps you are not as comfortable in front of the camera as you need to be. Speak to your employees, or perhaps your friends, to find someone who can be an effective cheerleader for your company. This will enhance the promotion of the product and get more people to view.
Do not neglect the sound of your video. You need to invest in a quality microphone if you want to record yourself. If you want to talk while demonstrating your product outside, get a lapel microphone. Do not hesitate to use some soft music if there are some silences in your video.
Get others involved in your videos. Whether you are giving a nod to a customer or interested site visitor, or doing an interview with within your niche, you can add some flavor to your videos. People like to see variety in marketing, which means you need to utilize multiple tools to build your success.
When writing a description of your video include your web address at the beginning of the description using proper HTML. This will allow viewer to click the link and be immediately directed to your website. You should also include a description using your primary and alternate keywords for better page ranks.
In your video marketing, let the viewer know why it is that you offer the product or service that you do. They can easily see what you offer, but let them know the reason behind it. Open, authentic and candid communication engenders trust, which engages new audience and retains previous buyers.
Videos need to be personal to catch the viewer’s attention. Be fun, friendly, calm and confident and your watchers won’t change the channel, so to speak. The more open and honest you are, the better received you will be. Stick to topics you’re truly passionate about as that will come out in your demeanor.
Video marketing has gained a loyal following, largely due to its potential to create amazing results for those willing to try it. By paying close attention to the types of methods that work and those which are less successful, it is possible to get truly terrific outcomes. Keep this article close at hand as you get the ball rolling.

If you own a business, you must know how important marketing is. If people aren’t aware of your business, you won’t be making any sales. However, if you’d like a leg up on the competition, consider video marketing. Read this article for information on video marketing.
Don’t be scared by video marketing. Creating quality videos is easy as long as you have a camera and a good tripod. You may want to give a demonstration of the way your products are made or simply speak with viewers.
You want to make sure that you put out videos regularly. Once people have seen your video and are familiar with it they will more than likely stop watching it. Posting new material will keep your viewers coming back to see what kinds of new things you are promoting.
Publish videos on a regular basis if you want to hold the interest of your users. If people are interested in you but you have not been showing them anything new, they may become bored with you quickly. While you do not want to overwhelm them with too many videos, you should try making them at least once or twice a month.
Video is a great medium for conveying ideas. This works in business by showing customers what makes your business special. A short video describing your products or highlighting your experience will go a long way to making that sale. Remember to be clear and make any ideas your convey simple to understand so that your video marketing campaign will be a total success.
To add another dimension into your video marketing campaign include your company’s logo. This can easily be accomplished by inserting a clip art image of your company’s logo directly into your video. The most common placement for the image is either at the bottom of the screen or in the upper corner of the video.
Do not neglect the sound of your video. You need to invest in a quality microphone if you want to record yourself. If you want to talk while demonstrating your product outside, get a lapel microphone. Do not hesitate to use some soft music if there are some silences in your video.
A great reason to have costars in your video is that they’ll have a network, too. If you bring on an expert in the field, he’ll let his network know he’s going to be appearing in your video, growing your exposure. They’ll share with their network, if the content is good, and you’ll get many viewers quickly.
Don’t be overly complicated in your videos. If you use a lot of technical terms and industry specific language, you are going to bore your viewers. Make your videos for the layperson. If technical language is required, make a second video to offer a deeper insight into the topic for the more advanced viewer.
Remember that effective videos are a balanced audio and visual experience. Have a good, solid script to use for what is said. However, make sure that you also employ appropriate imagery within the visual frame as well. The two should work together to reach the viewer’s right and left sides of their brain.
Once you get a video or two up, start churning them out. Focus your efforts into a campaign, where each of your individual videos is a smaller part of a larger whole. Create a synergy around your total body of content. If you can get a new viewer with one video to look at more, your chances of a successful call to action rise.
Having read this article, you can now go a head and start to create your own video marketing strategy. You really want to learn as much as you can about video marketing before beginning your own campaign. A successful marketing strategy will translate directly to increased profits.

CONSISTENT PROMOTION is the CRITICAL COMPONENT in making sales!
Platinum VIP Member, Johan Willems reveals his “SECRETS” to building his online business. (THANK YOU JOHAN for sharing your expertise).
Here’s the interview with Johan Willems 
Question:    Johan, how long have you been an online marketer, or working to build your own online business?
Answer: Actually I started when i joined Worldprofit, about 18 months ago. I was just looking for a way to get traffic,
but I got so much more. Before that, I studied the matter very closely. But I was studying the wrong material, all those ‘get rich quick schemes’
that ended up in my spam folder, which was my favorite ‘email literature’ at that time. I had been a Unix System Administrator for quite
some years and thought I knew it all. But the fact was: I knew nothing – especially on the matter of Internet Marketing.
I was still ignorant enough to believe that one website with a couple of clickbank affiliate products would be profitable.
Question: Johan, can you tell us how much time you spend promoting to build your business?
Answer: As much as I possibly can. The first reason for me to get involved with IM is my wife.
She has a disease that can’t be cured. She has her ups and downs, but she’d rather have me taking care of her than some nurse she hardly knows.
So I divide my time between household and taking care of my wife, and I spend the rest of my time at my online business.
I love working at night, without any distractions. And since i live in Europe, it’s the perfect way to adjust myself to the different timezones we’re in.
Question: Johan, what kind of promotion do you do? Free? Paid? Both?
Answer: I do both. I am investing more now in paid traffic, which is not a bad thing at all. After all I’m building my list. But it’s perfectly possible to invest,
making a good profit, and injecting half of what I earn back into my business.
Question: Johan, which Worldprofit services do you find the most useful in building your online business?
Answer: That’s a difficult question, because our Worldprofit backoffice is really stuffed with nothing but good, solid tools. Everything you need is right there:
the bootcamp training sessions, the prebuilt landingpages, cloaking/masking tools, incentives, automation tools.. But what really struck me from the beginning
was that a live person started talking to me when i first entered the Live Business Center. I also have great respect for the Worldprofit support team.
I also learned a lot from the other members, everyone is really being supportive.
Question:  Johan, what advise or suggestions do you have for someone very new to Worldprofit who is eager to build their online business?
Answer: Never give up. It’s like playing chess – thinking 3 steps ahead. You really have to think about your business on a long term basis.
I gave up once, but I came back.. because I realized the following: if you’re not capable of building a successful business with the help and training of Worldprofit,
you’re not going to make it in ANY business!! And of course: follow the bootcamp to the letter, and apply what you have learned.
I want to thank Sandi Hunter, working the accounts department in the background, but always open for questions, her responses always being friendly but straightforward.
You can actually FEEL that she’s supporting us. I’d like to thank George Kosch, for all the tools and training he’s providing us.
He’s a genius, AND one of the few “Guru’s” out there who is not afraid of sharing all his knowledge. And last but not least I want to thank Dr Lant, for being so direct,
honest, always mentoring us Monitors, making us feel more and more self confident. For sticking his neck out when he’s writing another daring article on matters many
authors wouldn’t even dare to touch. I regard him as one of my best friends.
I don’t know what the heck I would be doing online without the help of Worldprofit, but I know one thing for sure: I’m far better of now than I was 18 months ago!
