At OffBeat Business Media, we’re setting BIG goals to help American small business develop strong, influential brands that generate higher profit margins. Your powerful, profitable voice cannot be ignored by legislators. We’ve got our foot in the door right now, but we’ll have to be strong and united to deregulate and untie the nasty spider web our laws have become. It’s a lofty goal! But all of us here believe we can, will and ARE doing it. Your success is the key to it all.
Today, we can leverage our voice very differently – and that’s important, because if we continue to do everything everyone else is doing, we cannot break away from the herd.
No, your job is NOT to focus on getting better at playing THEIR game. YOUR job is to set the standards and decide how this game is going to get played. Otherwise, they’re just playing YOU.
Extraordinary results come when we allow ourselves to rethink our approach and decide to go big or go home. At OffBeat Business Media, we’ve decided to quit following mainstream digital advice, and instead of merely chasing Google drool, we’ve created a content environment that makes sense for business owners today in the way it most matters to your bottom line. Because THAT is the real issue.
Traditional blogging is wasting your time – and everyone else’s.
Highly paid brands are easily found. Period. Highly paid brands excel at the 4 key pillars.
4 Key pillers will make or break you this year. I’m not talking about Google, Facebook, or bashing the establishment. Although, if you want to bash the establishment, make more honest MONEY and tell them you’ve quit listening to their manipulating garbage. A horse is a horse, a duck is a duck, and broke business owners are not hiring, increasing the tax base or solving community problems. Mainstream media has governed our perspectives long enough.
What Are the 4 Key OBB Pillars?
- Networking – social and community
- Business processes
- Continuing education/ business coaching
- Digital marketing strategies
Proficiency in all of these areas will increase your capacity for sales and position you as the undeniable people magnet in the marketplace.
