Last Week on Sidepreneurs – Connect & Ask Questions To Top Entrepreneurs… Sidepreneurs Circle Share

Ok, so this post is LONG and future ones will not be, but in a second, I have a huge question to ask you, but before that, I wanted to let you know why I think you’ll want to be in on this. It will require something of you each week to stay in, but I think you’ll appreciate the value you get back because of it.

So, every day I’m having the privilege of interviewing interesting and successful entrepreneurs through my new podcast, Sidepreneurs.  I am getting a $1,000,000 education by hanging out; asking and listening to these folks answer a simple set of questions…

Now, I’m not one to hold onto things and not share, so, I want to begin introducing you to these amazing people directly through a weekly circle share notification to do two things:

1. Help you make connections with these folks (they are DEFINITELY WORTH CONNECTING WITH) and

2. Give you access to ask these incredible people specific questions to help with your specific needs as Sidepreneurs, Entrepreneurs and small business owners!

Uh, seriously? That’s pretty cool, Shawn… LOL, I know! Crazy!

Ok, so, how do I play? Great question!

So, this is a weekly notification circle for Sidepreneurs, Entrepreneurs and small business owners, for those interested in connecting with these successful and interesting entrepreneurs and as part of this circle you can feel free to ask questions below to people I am going to + mention in just a bit.

Now, you obviously do not want to miss this weekly opportunity, so in order to stay in, play and get the notices all you have to do is two things:

+ 1 this post and…

Share this Sidepreneurs Circle each week.  Yes, that simple…

But, there is a Bonus…

Bonus (optional): You don’t HAVE to do this at ALL, but if you take time to listen in to the podcasts from these entrepreneurs below it will let you know the specific areas they can help you with… I’ve posted links to podcasts they recently were on for Sidepreneurs.

All right, so, by +1ing and publically sharing this circle it lets me know you want to get notices AND you want to connect and ask these successful and interesting entrepreneurs your specific questions!  It’s as simple as that!

Where Can I Ask My Questions?

What another GREAT question… You Really Are On Top Of This…

All you have to do is comment below and be sure to + mention the entrepreneurs you want to ask your question to and then they will get a notice that you are asking them a question. 

Please know these folks are VERY BUSY and while each week I am letting them know about this post… due to their schedule and time, they may not always be able to respond quickly or at all.  BUT, some will and it is worth the opportunity to do so…

In Closing

Wouldn’t it be great to get answers to questions from those who are making an impact each day online?  Does it frustrate you to feel like, “I don’t know the right people!” and so and so is doing so well because they just know people… Well, it’s time to start connecting and start getting the answers you want!

Here is my ASK… It’s huge and simple…

Are You In?If you are already getting this notice, I made some assumptions you are in or at least wanted to be given the chance to say no, but if you aren’t that’s cool, just let me know below…

If you are in and want to stay in, simply + 1 and share this circle publicly when you get this notice.

As up and coming entrepreneurs there are often excuses we make for why we aren’t successful and I want to remove those hurdles you might be thinking are causing you to not be successful… Let me introduce you to some entrepreneurs and please ask them questions!!!

Last Week on Sidepreneurs

So You Want To Start Podcasting: 101 Tips, Ideas and Thoughts About Podcasting

Yeah, podcasting is hot right now... And everybody and their brother's cousin is starting one... So... after 101 episodes of Sidepreneurs, I have a few things to say about podcasting.

Listen here to my 101 tips, ideas and thoughts on podcasting:
http://sidepreneurs.com/podcasts/shawn-manaher-so-you-want-to-start-podcasting/

101 tips too much?  Here are my top 10 tips, ideas and thoughts about podcasting:
1. EVERYTHING will take longer, be harder and won’t matter as much as you think it does at the time.
2. Create templates for everything!
3. Telling stories is often more compelling than sharing straight facts…. If you can tell stories while sharing facts, you will have a show worth listening to.
4. “Top guests” are often more available and willing to give you a chance than you think… Go for the top and you will be surprised.
5. Give yourself a clear idea on what your costs will be BEFORE you launch… Include in those costs, subscriptions, equipment, outsourcing, content, logos, website design, hosting, etc… This can catch you by surprise if you have not considered everything.
6. CREATE SIMPLE OFFERS… Man I wasted a TON of time trying to create complex and overly deep offers!
7. Create videos for every task you want someone else to do.
8. If you concern yourself with stats, only look 1x per day / 1 x per week
9. ASK to be on other shows to get the word out about your show!
10. BATCH EVERY Process! So, batch creating a list of potential guests... Then batch emailing them all... then batch doing the podcasts... then batch doing the edits... Batching wins all the time in my book... And as someone doing a daily podcast, your VERY survival depends on batching!

What about you?  Going to start a podcast this year?  Love to hear what you are going to start!

Twitter Questions... Get Mentioned on Sidepreneurs...

I'm strongly considering getting off the fence and creating a course on Twitter and I wanted to get your help...

AND answer any of these questions and I will be sure to mention your business / website / book on a future episode of Sidepreneurs.... :)

What is your biggest struggle with Twitter?
Do you feel you already know everything about Twitter or is it a mystery?
Do you believe your avatar is hanging out on Twitter?
Do you think Twitter matters to your strategy?
Are you using Twitter Cards? Why or why not or are Twitter Cards "like, huh"?
How much time do you spend daily on Twitter?
Who is the one expert you think of when you think of Twitter?

Thanks!

Sidepreneurs Periscope LIVE Event in 50 Minutes

I'm LIVE streaming my podcast recording today on Periscope at 3:55 pm EST and would love to have you participating in the conversation.  I'll get you involved in the show as much as possible with a new Q&A session for our guest.

Just a couple things to do... download Periscope App on your IOS device, search for Sidepreneurs and follow  to get a notification when the LIVE Stream starts.  I'll start this LIVE stream 5 minutes before the guest gets on so we can get things rocking ahead of time.

We will also host a LIVE chat on Twitter to field questions for our guest found here: http://sidepreneurs.com/live (note a new link will be live at 3:56 EST - I re-purpose the same link each time I do one of these).

Alright, Periscope + Sidepreneurs + Guest * YOU = One AMAZING Podcast!

Periscope for Podcasting

Ok, so I just had a few AHAs about using Periscope for Podcasters and I had to share how individuals might want to use it for their podcast.

I’m on Periscope right now as I type this!

1. Connect with your audience – Talk about a genuine way to make interaction fun and exciting! I JUST met someone that listens to my podcast DAILY!!! Seriously?!? Definitely a great way to connect. I was also able to hang out 15 minutes with a bunch of other cool people I had never met. Awesome!

2. Behind the scenes – Access is such a prized thing these days… And if you let your audience know when you will stream live, you can give them that behind the scenes look they may want.

3. LIVE audience interaction… I know there are fancy applications available for use with podcasting platforms, but now you can LIVE stream your podcast while it is being recorded and where it makes sense… take audience questions. A huge opportunity if it makes sense for your format.

4. Content Development on the fly... As I write this I am able to get instant feedback from the audience about what I am writing. As I asked the audience on periscope just now… what else would you include in this post… Someone quickly had a response.

5. Lead Digits... I haven't used lead digits with my podcast yet for some crazy reason, but it instantly clicked that I could move my viewers easily by having a lead digit setup to quickly share an offer. I think +Landing Pages By LeadPages™ supports that ideas. :)

Alright, so that’s a real quick take on Periscope for Podcasters…
Oh... for those not aware... Periscope: http://venturebeat.com/2015/04/28/more-than-a-million-people-signed-into-periscope-in-first-10-days/

What do you think? How could you use Periscope?

+Shawn Manaher Periscope is great, but how do you handle with the lack of memory?
Content streamed by Periscope is not available after the show: is it?
How can I cope with it?

Execution...

It's what successful entrepreneurs do consistently to create results others only hope for. Hoping will not get you where you want to go, only executing consistently on the things you know bring success. Don't know what will work for your business, product or service? ASK others how they do what they do... You'll be surprised at how open people really are, if you just ask...
