#World Cup Saturday, June 20th at Beulahland in Portland, Oregon. Come watch Germany v. Ghana.#GER v. #GHA know you want to! I've waited four years for this- and it has been great so far! I'm at most matches- I'm doing the social media for Beulahland this year, so I get to use my marketing skills and watch some great footie with people from all over the world. Stop by and say hi! I'm tweeting from @beulahlandpdx and would love to hear from you. We open at 8:30 AM for the Argentina v. Iran match. I'll be there at 11:00 for Die Mannschaft v. Ghana along with a lot of fun giveaways. Woo! Julie

Google +1's and Higher Search Rankings: New Study

Here's the thing that many will miss if they don't read +Cyrus Shepard's post carefully. It is not the +1's themselves that are causing the high rankings of posts but the fact that most +1's on a site result in a shared post on Google+, which creates a followed link back to the post. It's instant organic link building.

Cyrus has just brought to Moz what I wrote about in my most-read post ever: http://bit.ly/gplusseohowto Google+ pages, profiles, and communities have PageRank. Thus not only getting lots of +1 shares helps you, but getting some from high-authority Google+ users helps even more. This is why people who have built strategic networks with Google+ influencers have a huge legup in their SEO.

Because people will misread a post like this, you are going to see a whole new wave of people gaming and selling +1's. But they are wasting their time and money. The real takeaway here is to do all the to-do's in Cyrus's post (which I have always told you to do) AND work hard to build a strong network here on Google+. It's that network of people who love your great content and will share it out here that builds the SEO power of your site's posts.

Recommended: If you want to take the real deep dive on this topic, I highly recommend reading the extensive series by +Joshua Berg on Google+ SMO (Social Media Optimization). The link below is to Part 6; scroll down to the bottom and follow the links there to read the other five parts: http://goo.gl/N0xhD

Thanks for all of the ideas- if you sent me an email between July 25th and August 3rd, please send it again. I had a bit of trouble with my email - in other words- I deleted it by accident. Long story!
 
Call for Master Class Presenters.

I work with a professional speaking group here in Portland,  Oregon. We present a series of master classes every year on topics ranging from speaking skills and booking conference keynotes to social media marketing and creating products for sale.

If you have a presentation topic you feel would help high level speakers increase their skills in the areas of speaking, business or marketing, please send me an email and we can go from there.

Please note that this is a local gig for local presenters.

Thank you! Julie

Sitting here with Sherry Joiner, author of Sherry Goes Sane: Living a Life with Schizo-affective Disorder. What a book! We are doing a photo shoot for her new contest that starts next week. Here's an out take photo.  Details of the contest where readers get a chance to win the beautiful painting Sherry is holding are coming soon. Cookie is my mom's dog, so she's not part of the contest. HEHE. :)  Julie

Marcia profoundly improved my writing after just one seminar- and I'm a professional writer! When I have to meet a specific word count for an article, I hear Marcia's editing tips in my head the entire time I'm writing. My main editors rarely need to make changes. Oh. Marcia is good!

What contest can you create to inspire current clients and find new clients? I often do Facebook and Twitter contests where I give away my books. Just make sure you have follow up in place as it can be a lot of work!

International Football

As all of my friends know, I'm a football fanatic. I not only love watching the matches- I'm also very interested in the way football affects the world and how football also affects the lives of so many athletes who often aren't prepared for the spotlight or life without football once their bodies give out.

I believe we can all learn from the incredible skills of professional footballers. Here is a video that shows what I mean!

There are many paths to greatness- from using our intellectual ability to start a business to using our heads to create beauty!
