First Wednesday Weekly Business Update Published - Topic 'Be Consistent'

I'm very much looking forward to sharing this my first Wednesday Weekly Business Update on my YouTube channel. #weeklybusinessupdate

So why am I doing this other than why not?

Well for a multitude of reasons from it being a close online medium to face-to-face communication (my favourite soap box topic) - to reigniting a passion of mine, film which I studied back in University years ago to it was always a part of the marketing mix for all that I do (although the latter is less exciting) - to recently been inspired by my 9 year old son and conversations with him about social media channels and business.

In addition to all of these reasons, I was sharing my vision with one of our most recent members yesterday that I wish to build my personal brand for business beyond my home town, Perth Western Australia - this is for the benefit of the already 100 members of Out of the Box Biz we have. As I have been in business for 8 and a half years and this most recent business is only 2 and a half years old - when I began this business it was off the credibility I provided as I was already known to the local business market. Therefore I wish to grow this business beyond Perth Western Australia therefore why I wish to grow my personal brand beyond this locality also. We are able to provide levels of membership for those outside Perth, Western Australia and if we build 50 members in another capital city we can begin running live events there also.

My son and I were both researching about 'Youtubers' together and I have become fascinated by the following and influence they attract. There is no 'fluke' why many of them have achieved such high numbers of subscribers - we're talking in the millions here - while their content may or may not be of appeal to you personally, I am more interested in the business fundamentals and principles they are following. One of which is to 'Be Consistent'. This is the topic of this my first Weekly Business Update. Please check it out on the video below and I would love to hear your comments or receive your likes or subscriptions.

Have a great day Being Consistent in Business #be consistent

New Retro Microphone

Well it completely is the small things in life that get you excited isn't it?

I feel very blessed to have a partner that seems to understand my joy and elation at having purchased not only an external microphone to record my YouTube channel videos, quirky chats, tips and musings but to be thrilled it has a 'retro' look. Aesthetics are totally everything... anyway, I explain what happened from logical research to the final purchase in the video:

Video although not Face-to-Face Communication is a good medium just the same

I have had the intention to share more video content for the longest time and simply haven't. After spending some quality time with an Out of the Box Thinker from my business, Out of the Box Biz, Linda McMahon (she's an accountability, productivity and systems expert) - I was inspired and motivated to just do it - to take action. As all those that work with me know, particularly my mentoring clients, I LOVE action takers!

So why video content? Well it definitely does not replace face-to-face communication but it does show people in a more comprehensive with more complexities of communication available. What I mean is, you can view body language, vocal tone and inflection and eye contact (as long as they know where to look). Therefore you're able to receive more information than say a text message or email.

Therefore... I am inspired to re-launch/ re-ignite my Youtube Channel... (which I know I have mentioned earlier this week but...) I have decided to commit to a weekly 'Conversation' video; like a weekly Vlog (Video Blog). 

So jump on over and Subscribe to my channel and share your comments and feedback:

Fleur Recommends Highrise CRM

It has been like returning back to an old friend. I have recently returned using Highrise CRM as my own personal overall database.

Why? Because I like to:

1. Keep track of conversations
2. I've used it before many years ago
3. I like the tasks ability and
4. Cases feature
5. Use something that is oh so simple to use

I'm still using Ontraport for my specific marketing CRM and landing page, sequencing and email management however wanted a CRM separate for all my own contacts over the years and suppliers etc that I don't necessarily market too but still use on occasion or communicate with. I'd love to show you social proof and not just my word for it but can't seem to find them on social media. So I guess at present you'll just need to take my word for it...

Anyway, try it out if you're in the market for a CRM - if not then no problemo

My YouTube Channel

Goodness I have neglected my blog - completely unintentional - but good news is, I'm thrilled to confirm I will be working on my personal YouTube Channel as well as channel's for my 2 businesses: Out of the Box Biz and Property with Purpose.

Why? I just love video, always have... I have a great deal of footage that simply has not been shared so I am committing to getting it organised and sharing it to assist those that are interested in following what I share.

Plus an added bonus is Vblogging or Video blogging is the way to go and short videos have been receiving the most engagement and views by a long way compared to other modes or educational/information channels of communication.

Did you know that Youtube is the second most used search engine behind Google? No wonder Google bought it... so love to hear your comments and suggestions of content.
