Ann Convery Video Interview at Author 101

Ann Convery Talks to me About How You Can Excite, Invite and Compel Someone in as Little as 30 Seconds!

I got to spend some fun time with my old friend Ann Convery at Author 101 recently. If you know me and my site you have probably already heard Ann and I as I got to interview her at length about the secrets of the mind and how to talk to it in a way that makes sense, wakes it up and arouses curiosity.

We are not talking manipulation or asking someone to do what they don’t want to do.. This is about getting your message across to the people that need to hear it in the most compelling way.

Mike Koenigs on Cross Channel Marketing

Mike Koenigs Co-Founder of Traffic Geyser and and Master Marketer Talks to Us About Cross Marketing.

I so love covering Author 101 University. First I get to hang out with Rick Frishman who is probably the nicest guy you ever want to meet.

A guy who truly cares about his client and his vendors as well. Anyway it is no problem talking up Rick, but one of the other reasons is the speakers and participants to his conference are always creme de la creme of the successful.

In this case Rick brought in the master of Internet Marketing Mike Koenigs. If you have not heard his name and you are marketing on the Internet, then you already know you are headed in the wrong direction. Read his bio below and you will get a sense of what I mean.

I have to say that I meet all form of speaker and guru, but Mike is different. First he is extremely and sincerely passionate about what he does and it shows on stage and behind the scenes as well. A hugh line formed after his talk and I waited for it to calm down before grabing Mike for this interview. My wait was very long because Mike gave each person the time and attention needed to answer their questions and help them. I was actually surprised that he still had some juice while talking to me.

I have not used Traffic Geyser, but have heard over and over from trusted gurus I know, that they have or still use this product. I have not used Cross Channel Mojo (CCM) either, but have been teaching this concept to my clients for years. CCM not only uses a concept I really believe in, but it automates the process. Hard to deny that as very powerful.

Thanks Mike, I have always watched in amazement from afar. I can see now that I needed to step up, as many of us do, that are flailing out there in Social Media Marketing Land. Thanks for your time and your grateful attitude. I really enjoyed this one. –  – JW

Cross Channel Mojo

This product represents three years of research, development and effort and over $1.3mm in investment dollars and Mike Keonigs makes a bold statement – “It will revolutionize the way you market your business”.

Mike says he has been using this technology his self for over three years and it’s been tested in 51 countries.

Here’s the backstory according to Mike.

Every business has the same FOUR identical challenges:

  • You don’t capture every lead that comes along (think about all the business cards you have in rubber-bound stacks that you never follow up with)
  • You don’t follow up
  • You don’t know who those prospects really are because you don’t take the time to research every person you meet
  • You don’t present an offer for one of your products

With regards to following up – you can’t get the attention of a prospect if you are using using one “channel” – like email. Or just mobile text. Or just direct mail. Or voice mail. Or video email.

But what if there was a way to:

Capture every lead, every business card that came your way effortlessly and automatically?

Automatically follow up with every prospect – with email, mobile text, voice mail, postcards, letters and multimedia email?

And automatically present your business offers…

And automatically research every prospect – so you instantly qualified them and knew everything there was to know about them?

Every time. Automatically…

What if?

That’s what Cross Channel MOJO is all about.

Technology, tools, training and “done for you” templates and resources.
