I believe that LinkedIn is one of the most underutilized networks for growing your business. Through LinkedIn, I have received both clients and referral partners. I want to help you to use the mobile app better and to see why you should be using video in your LinkedIn posts and messages to create relationships more quickly.
During this session we will review the basics of the LinkedIn App and how to navigate around. How to search for people based on job title, location and company. How to send a personalized invitation to connect and why you want take that extra step.
With the recent addition of the ability to upload a video directly into LinkedIn - we will review how to creat a video and upload it. I have recorded an introduction that I am sending to all new connections in a message! This is allowing people to connect more personally and develop relationships more quickly. We will review some best practices for this video and the steps for you to be able to do the same.

I hope you have been seeing my posts about how much I like chatbots for growing a list of subscribers. I feel so strongly that every small business needs to have a chatbot installed on their Facebook page that my next workshop is on Growing Your List with Chatbots. On that blog post link, you can even test out a chatbot message sequence to see how they work.
Here is a video I recorded on some of the List Growth Tools available with ManyChat.
I hope to see you at the Chatbot workshop on Oct 21 - or if you missed it look for the course I will create from the recordings later.
I love helping small businesses with their marketing. I especially love helping people find free ways to marketing (OK the workshop isn't free because the electric company likes for me to pay the bills they send me) but you can use the Free level of ManyChat very well.)
The workshop will start at 9 AM - but come early for registration and networking. Bring your own laptop.
I will provide lunch.
What can ManyChat do?
- Subscribers opt-in to getting messages from you
- Through a commenting on a Facebook Post
- Through clicking on a link
- or event through scanning a Messenger Code with their phone
- You can send them whitepapers, videos, and links to register for your events
- You can just say "Happy Monday"
- You can segment your subscribers so they only get the marketing messages that are relevant to them
The open rates on the messages I am sending is phenomenal and the click through's to get more information is VERY high right now. Think about when you first started getting email marketing messages - you opened WAY more than you probably do now. (You are opening mine still, right?) Be one of the first to adopt this list growing tool - you will stand apart from your competitors.
I hope to see you at this event (or later at the online course).
I have been watching a trend grow and I want you know more about it. Messenging Apps are growing by an astounding trend. And I want you to be an early adopter. I want to help you have a chatbot on your Facebook page as soon as possible. I want you to be able to be able to connect with your next clients. I want you to grow your list. Join me for a full day seminar.
First - read this excerpt from an article about marketing trends.
...mobile messaging represents the greatest adoption among businesses between 2013 and 2017, with a CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) of 20%, ahead of apps (16%), and social media (8%), and that by 2017, mobile messaging will overtake email in popularity as a marketing channel (84% vs 72%) ... (chatbotsmagazine.com)
You know how much I have been (and will continue to be) a proponent of email marketing. These are numbers we can't ignore. Plus you can use ManyChat to grow your email list with many email providers.
Look at graph #5 in this Medium Article. The top 4 messaging apps have more users than the top 4 social networks.
At the end of this seminar, you will have a "Chatbot" set up on your Facebook Page. Your page can send messages directly to your clients. I want you to join me.
Saturday, Oct 21
9AM to 4PM - lunch provided
I was on a webinar recently and a chatbot builder told the audience they charged $3700 to build a simple chatbot for their clients. My chin dropped open. I will be happy to send you an estimate to build yours for that price. However, I think you can do it by simply attending my workshop. I will make sure that you are following the "rules" and best practices.
Best of all my workshop is only $95 and that includes lunch!
Not convinced? Watch my Facebook page for some Facebook Live videos so I can share some more information with you. Attend my Pre-Webinar on Oct. 11 to see Chatbots in action.
Grow your list - Segment that list based on opt-ins/answers - ManyChat can work with other tools you are using - ManyChat doesn't cost anything to start! Get in front of more people. Mobile messaging is dominating and I want you to dominate.
