We’re fairly certain that most people think of blogging as just writing, writing and writing some more. Well think again! There are so many different content formats that can be added to a blog.
Let’s take a look at a few of them…
There are more than one way to use video on a blog, and more than one type or style of video. There is the standard Talking Head variety… just film yourself talking about a subject of choice and post it in your blog. Pretty simple.
Then there’s the next step up… a “YouTube” type of video. One with a little more in it than just you. This may get the visitors to your blog to stay a while longer than they normally would have.
There is also another format that looks like video, really engages your visitor and allows them to abs0rb the information from your post in a user-controlled, searchable presentation.
OK… we’ve talked about video… the “moving pictures”, the presentations that have “action”. But still pictures are also an awesome addition to a blog post. A picture is worth a thousand words, they stay in your readers’ minds longer and have more impact than just words.
There are programs that allow you to record audio and then place it in your blog. This is another good way to get the visitors to your blog to hang out a bit longer. Instead of having to take the time to read text, they can listen to it. Again, involving them in a different way.
So… we’re wondering…
As well… let us know what other types of media you have used, which one is your favorite, and which one you still have challenges with in the comments section below.
Basically, the main point here is this… mix it up! Have fun! Use other formats of information and content delivery in your blog. There’s a great chance your visitors will spend more time there and make return visits more often.
Conversing with People on Twitter Leads to More Online Traffic with Liz Hindley
We were tickled pink to be able to catch Liz Hindley for a COOL interview during the Marketing Funnel Mastery event held in Las Vegas.
In this video Liz shares with us the importance of conversing with people and building relationships on Twitter. It’s not all about promotion. Don’t take our word for it; listen to the interview with Liz!!!
You need to watch the entire video… the peanut gallery pipes up at the end and gives us all a laugh! Something about naked….
If you got any value from this experiences, please comment and share.

Like everyone else, there seems to be no end to the amount of information and knowledge you’ve acquired through interesting articles or blog posts you’ve read, courses or e-courses you’ve taken, and all the other types of information research you’ve done.
You’re absolutely sure you’ve stored all of this somewhere… but where? Can you easily find it when you need it? And… you may be wondering why it really matters if you can find this or not.
Well… just in case you are wondering, here are the top 5 reasons why you really DO need to organize all your information and knowledge:
5) How Do I…?
You’re stuck… and you know you have the answer somewhere in the information you’ve gathered… but where? Make your organizational system searchable so you can find the exact info you need, when you need it.
4) Content Creation
You’ve got blog posts and articles to write. What about that e-course you planned on releasing? Researching all the information you have is a great source for content. It’s right under your nose. Again, organize it and make it searchable.
We were extremely honored to be able to catch Mike Klingler for a COOL interview during his Marketing Funnel Mastery event held in Las Vegas.
In this video Mike shared why having a clear, concise plan of action, and believing in the plan, will help you through procrastination. Don’t take our word for it; listen to the interview with Mike!!!
The MFM event itself draws an empowered group of individuals (really more like a family) of committed
and very dedicated solo entrepreneurs, coaches and small business owners.
We were spellbound as we watched Mike Klingler share his 12 million dollar funnel with the whole group. Mike is totally about giving… that’s for sure.

What could you really do if you didn’t have all these ANTs in your mind. (ANT=Automatic Negative Thought)
We’ve always loved Mind Maps! It’s totally amazing how they allow us to recap a whole lot of information and knowledge all in one place. Honestly, if you wrote out all the information contained in just one mind map, like the ones to the left, it would be like writing a small novel.
We purchased the Lifetime Membership a while back and yet he still keeps adding more and more maps almost monthly. We’re guessing it helps him get his ideas out of his head… and keep his clients up to date. So how do we manage and keep track of these 150+ maps, so that when we need them we can find them quickly?
We could tell you, but that wouldn’t do it justice. So we’ll show you what we do to manage the 25+ Visual Maps from IQMatrix that Adam is currently giving away (for free!), and how we connect these maps to the blog posts that have been created for them. It’s all very COOL!!!
Downloading IQMatrix Free Visual Maps with “TheBrain”
So here they are (drum roll please)…
The steps to download the IQMatrix Free Visual Maps within “The Brain”:
Step #1 - Download the PersonalBrain desktop software and install it. Don’t worry, it runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
That gives you 30 days of access to all the features of the software. But don’t fret… after the 30 days the IQMatrix Visual Maps will still work.
Step #2 - Download the BrianZip of the IQ Matrix Free Visual Maps that we created.
=> Download the IQMatrix Free Visual Maps BrainZip
Once that is downloaded, all you need to do is double click on the BrainZip and TheBrain will unpack and install the IQMatrix Visual Maps on your local machine. It’s as simple as that!
And trust us, once you start using ‘The Brain’ you might just happen to fall in love with it
We have also posted a web version (called WebBrain) of the IQMatrix Visual Maps.
To access that version ==> Go Here!
Before you go there… we’d just like to point out that WebBrain is still under development and doesn’t work as well as it does when running on your local machine. Basically, it’s slower and doesn’t have as many features as the computer-based version… but it does work!
And one last thing… if you decide to purchase IQMatrix Lifetime Membership through our affiliate link, send us a copy of your invoice and we’ll send you a BrainZip of the 150+ Mind Maps contained in the IQMatrix Membership.
Now this last point is a very limited-time offer. We could pull this offer at any time because of the time required for us to create the BrainZips.
We would love to hear your feedback and comments below (really, we would!)… Thanks!
