Meet The Mentor: There is no Such Thing as “Content Marketing”

The term “Content Marketing” is used a lot of people. I even say it from time to time but when you dig down deeper into what that actually means, you will find out that content is not what we create as marketers for our businesses, if anything its much more important than just content creation.

There is no such thing as “Content Marketing” what you should be saying is I am a “Trust Builder”, becoming a reliable and trusted source for people is what creates awareness and sales. You can create content all day and all night and still not reach an audience because of how its delivered. How many of you write blogs and get terrible views for them? This is for you people, Let’s get into this a bit.AAEAAQAAAAAAAAbUAAAAJGUyOGMyMzI2LTI4NzEtNDc1ZC1hMmRjLWQ4NDExNzU0YjhiNw

Let’s get into a topic that not many people like to actually engage in…POLITICS, Let’s say its the election season, we have a Democratic candidate and a Republican going head to head. You like neither one of them but you feel obligated to vote and are undecided so…..who gets your vote on Election day?

What if you are not a Democrat or a Republican? How would you go out and reach people as a candidate or as a “Content Creator” for them?

Here’s how you set this up, go in and start making a Facebook ad, don’t actually make an ad but start the process and start typing in what you want to create an ad for, once you pick a niche, a few other examples of related topics will pop up. Some of those topics will have nothing to do with your niche at all……but don’t panic!

What you are seeing is the search results that best rank well with your niche you picked. Here are some details on this. Let’s say you are an undecided voter but you love monster trucks and shooting guns. If I was a content creator for one of the candidates, I would put them in a monster truck, and then show pics of them skeet shooting or hunting just so I can get them to become more relatable to YOU!….stay with me.

People choose “Emotions” over “Logic” many times.

If I hate politics and I don’t really want to see any posts about it then how do I even decide who I vote for?…..the one who gets my attention the best in real time based on my real world interactions thats who. If I love guns, then I’ll be a little bias towards someone else who also loves guns or who is just around them. I’ll form an opinion about that person based on their interests that are similar to mine and Poof……that’s who I am voting for.

Some of you are saying “That’s stupid Mike”, actually its not because this is how most people actually vote and make decisions in life. They vote for the candidate who they feel relates to them the most or who will at least do a good enough job to make things go in favor of people just like you or me so that is how the choices are being made by people, they use EMOTIONS.

Most people don’t study any real topics like the economy or healthcare reform so instead they base their choices in life strictly off of who makes an emotional connection with them in “REAL TIME”…..sales and marketing works the exact same way.

Using politics is just an example, but people make purchasing decisions all the time because the “Randomness” of your content is just enough of an eye opener to get someone’s attention because it relates to things that people actually want to engage with.

When I tell people that getting attention online is a science, it really is. Find out what makes people take notice and then target them with content related to that as a lead in, it works amazing. its-science-funny-pic

I get people to find me online for all my businesses because I can target many things outside of my individual niche. I’ve been a DJ, I’ve been on Radio, I’ve been a speaker on stage at Amway World Head Quarters, I own a video game channel, I’ve bought and sold real estate in multiple states without leaving my home, I’m a published author, and more.

I’ve done some cool stuff in life let’s just say that and when I can attract people to my content who also like those type of things, I can get people to notice me and more of what I do a lot easier vs me trying to ram Mentor Lessons down people’s throats non stop or harrassing people with direct mail to sell me their property. Here is an example of how this worked for me in real life….

I bought a house in Texas last year and resold it to a developer all in the same week because some lady from Montana saw that I was a music DJ for years and her son is also a DJ so she called me to talk about that more than we ever talked about her selling her house that was in Probate. It wasn’t luck that she found me, I post my music online because I want people to actually listen to it.

When this lady did a background check on me, she didn’t look for anything related to real estate at all, she was out poking around looking for something we had in common and being a mobile DJ was the one thing that got me a deal with her.

I was trust worthy to her not because I have bought and sold houses before, but because I share a same interest as her son…….sounds stupid huh?, it’s not because she made a decision to sell her house to me all because I loved music in a way that her son did. It had nothing to do with my ability to buy her home at all, it was all done because of an emotional connection I was able to make based on my own personal interests that I engage in.

Class Starts on June 3rd.

In my Masters Class, I show people how I create content that gets more attention than a normal blog entry. I call this “Spiking The Algorithm”. Many of you have seen me do this a few times because I always post my blog stats when I do that. There is a reason I can pull that off when I want to. It’s a combination of good timing and well thought out research. I’ll show the new students how I do this process in the class and show you why my numbers are always spike when I attempt this.
