Google Plus Marketing: The Pull & Push
There are tons of different strategies that we can go by when it comes to using Google Plus.  But while most of us have different strategies, there is one thing that we can all agree on.  

Marketing and Branding are two different things.

Read the article here:

+martin shervington (also mentioned in the article) has been a key element in helping me understand how branding actually works, and beat it all, +Dustin W. Stout kindly mentioned me last night in his run down of the speech +Jay Baer done at SMMW14 about how people were getting tired of the "look at me" strategy.

Push and Pull Marketing

This article really shows you why you should do each of these things and when the right time is to actually bring these ideas into your strategy here on Google Plus.  

Quote in the article

If you push a string it collapses in the middle, sometimes overlapping itself and basically represents chaos and disorder.  That is what pushing your followers too early can get you with your Google Plus marketing strategy.  Understanding when to push them is the key to being successful.

Happy Easter

I hope you are having a beautiful and blessed Easter Sunday.
Even in quite moments of rest and relaxation, dreaming of the future will influence your direction and results.
So daydream away in that comfy chair. Focus on your dreams and what you want and allow yourself to believe that all is possible :)

This weekend is about transformation and rebirth.
Wishing you the change you wish for yourself.

Yesterday was a blur of busyness and belated celebrations (for my very special son's 18th birthday).
And the weather was very kind to us.
Today is back to focusing and writing and creating.

I hope you are chilling out in the sun and surrendering to the holiday and the chocolate 

Happy Easter everyone!

It's been an interesting and busy day. That's what Thursdays are about I feel. The day when you can see if you are going to make it to the end of the week in the way you had planned!

Me? Almost!! There's a couple of things on that 'To-do' list still undone. Sigh!
How's your Thursday treating you?

E-business trainer and consultancy owner ( ), who loves strategy, social media and internet marketing more than her dog (I really love my dog!!). Madly passionate about YOUR success.
My mission is to help you embrace the digital revolution by making it work for you rather than you be driven by it. I help you embrace a mind-set and strategy for success online. I founded Excellence Addicts ( with my business partner in 2006 as we had a shared vision of empowering people to be free, to live their best lives, authentically and with joy and passion. I folded that company finally in January 2012 ( 2years after his death) and embraced my own vision with Taking Your Business Online ( My chosen box of magic tricks consist of Digital media and internet marketing, my 20+ years IT and Leadership skills, training and teaching, writing,  business strategy, NLP, Time Line Therapy(tm), Hypnosis , coaching and the university of life:) I believe in people. I believe in the magic in people. I believe we all have within us the potential to be and do something live our best life with passion, joy and love, irrespective of the outward appearances and circumstances. My passion is working with the humanness that is within us all. The stuff that stops us in our frailty of human conditioning. To remove the barriers we impose upon ourselves and to reveal the true spirit, the true vulnerability of the individual that ultimately results in personal power and strength - and authenticity in your engagement with the world.. I want to help you embrace life, the very essence of your reality. And to teach you to shape and form it to your dream, your vision, so that you achieve a freedom of being. Of being who you are, standing in your truth, expressing the essence of you as a person so that you attract the people who are perfect to help you fulfil your dream, your mission, your purpose, your leadership. This has never been easier than in the current digital revolution. I work with who you really are to help you shine to the world. Irrespective of where you are in your life, I truly believe you can create and live the life you have longed for...if you want it enough, are willing to make the changes, let go of your story, face the challenges and commit to achieving your dream. Certified International Trainer of NLP, NLP Coaching, Time Line Therapy® Techniques, Hypnosis. E-learning modules and mobile training modules available.
Bragging rights
I'm not very good at this and getting better...I'm persistent. I rarely give up. I ran a half marathon many years ago, and last year after 4 weeks training ran a 10K after 20 yrs of no running. I did a masters because it was faster than a degree (while working full time as an IT consultant and just after my son was born - pure madness). I can learn just about anything, turn it into the language of a 6 year old and teach it. I'm an amazing leader when I allow myself to be. I love technology - something it's taken me a life time of working with it to admit!. I love business, learning, practising and teaching! I'm Mastering Marketing Mastery! I am passionate about passing on what I know and helping others - why else did I learn it? And I'm a people person. I have survived a divorce and then losing everything - my partner died, my company folded, I came back to the UK with a suitcase and lived in 1 room with my laptop for a year (not so long ago). I'm a single parent and proud dog owner. And at last I'm on purpose and love who I am more than any other time in my life.
