Web Entrepreneur Fav #11: Brand it Before You Bring It

sistasense12favs-11

We all know there is nothing new under the sun, but if you want to present a unique spin on things be sure to brand it before your bring it. Think about it, you can throw a rock and hit a fast food burger joint right? But there is only one place that will give you a Big Mac. Each franchise has its own brand specific sandwiches, so when people talk about their product the brand-association is crystal clear.

One of my favorite marketing strategies is creating brand specific products, services and events. From my Power Circle Experts and Clarity Sessions to my weekly Jumpstart Your Business Calls, I want people to people to be able to identify my signature services and easily share them with others. In my opinion this is how you can make word of mouth marketing work best for you and expand your brand in the process.

For example when I created my BBWO list of 50 Fabulous Women Entrepreneurs or started hosting my annual Power Circle Conference I had the Forbes Lists and Essence festivals of the world in mind. At the end of the day you should strive to create the kind of brand that lasts. My tip for you today is to avoid being generic. Try not to use terms ‘they use’ in the hopes of recreating ‘their success’. Start carving out your path by defining your business on your terms. Remember SistaSense told you first, “Brand it before your bring it!”

What’s 12 Days of Favs? It is my spin on the 12 Days of Christmas (smile). For 12 days each December on SistaSense I share some of my favorite web business tools plus marketing and sales tips for online entrepreneurs.

Daily Deal: On the topic of brand marketing, what do you think of SistaSense In Print Magazine. Would you like to create your own branded magazine? Be sure to sign up for my upcoming MasterMind weekend, so I can show you how to brand your business SistaSense Style.

Web Entrepreneur Fav #9: Best Alternative to Saving Files on Your Computer

sistasense12favs-10

Have you ever lost important files unexpectedly? No one ever really anticipates losing their files, but it happens all too often. I have had my share of computers over the years, so I know firsthand how frustrating it can be when your computer dies and all your important files are suddenly gone. As a matter of fact, a few months back I came back from a business trip and saw the “black screen of death” on my favorite laptop. No matter how many times I turned it on, it just kept telling me the hard drive could not be found. Normally this would be one of those moments I would panic and pull out a loc, but I was pretty calm and I’ll tell you why.

About 10 years ago a tech friend of mine told me all about external hard drives and my life changed in a most wonderful way. Since then every two years I purchase a new Western Digital Passport to store all my files and keep backups of previous years past. Back to my story about good ol’ Betsy; fortunately for me I didn’t lose my most important files when my faithful HP took its last breath. I quietly put it aside pending a full tech inspection, plugged the external drive into one of my other computers and went back to work without skipping a beat.

My advice to you is to stop tearing your hair out every time your computer fails you. I can’t tell you how often I get emails from distressed clients hoping I’ve saved content from their old projects because they lost everything to a virus or old computer meltdown. Preventative medicine is truly your best medicine so go get yourself to WD Passports stat; one for new content and another to back up all the old files, photos and memories you’ve stored on your computer over the years. Backups will definitely take a few hours to complete, but they are definitely well worth it. Last thing to note, because I am loyal to the brands that I love I would say Western Digital is the way to go. Their external hard drives have never failed me and I hope they prove to be as resilient for you as well.

Daily Deal: Did I make your day with my tech tip of the day? Let’s talk about all of my favorite tech tools and tips more often. Join my online Power Circle for access to my tutorials, webinars and monthly live calls.

Web Entrepreneur Fav #8: Logitech Headsets Perfect for Daily Business Activities

sistasense12favs-09

Who uses land lines any more? Most of my daily phone conversations actually take place via the Skype app on my iPad, so having a quality headset is vital to my business. For the past 5 years Logitech has been my go to brand for quality headsets that I can use in my daily business activities. Its perfect for voice and video chat. I prerecord trainings, host live conference calls, lead webinars and my famous clarity sessions all with the help of my handy headset. Plus with hands free flexibility, I can type, talk and never skip a beat. The Noise canceling microphone delivers clear communication and you have quick access to in-line volume and microphone mute controls. I personally think they are perfect for entrepreneurs, which is why I’ve included them as an essential tool in my Jumpstart Your Business Starter Kit (jybkits.sistasense.com).

Web Entrepreneur Fav #6: The KeyBoard I Take Everywhere

sistasense12favs-06

I personally prefer pressing actual keys to typing on a tablet screen, so one of the first iPad accessories I purchased was a blue-tooth keyword. It worked great, but it was one extra item to carry around, so I seldom used it. Shortly after that initial purchase I came across the ZAGGfolio Keyboard Case. I instantly fell in love with its sleek design and multipurpose functionality. I thought, “a case and keyboard in one, sweet!” And trust me when I say, it is truly one of the sweetest mobile accessories around. I take this keyboard everywhere. I no longer limit myself to writing short emails or web browsing out of frustration from two finger tablet typing that often times slow and overflowing with typos. Now I can comfortably type any length of content from blog posts and project notes to just about anything I desire. With the ZAGGfolio Keyboard Case my iPad mini experience has officially gone from awesome to amazing. Just as their motto states, Zagg truly does enhance the way we can interact with our gadgets.
