The use of social media marketing is on the rise. Everybody is talking about it. Companies are allocating larger budgets for social media marketing each year. Does that mean that TV advertisements are dead?

People Watch 34 Hours TV Each Week In USA As Research Shows

At a dinner recently, I happened to be part of this conversation with some of my friends in the marketing and advertising space. It was an interesting and insightful discourse. I want to share with you a few things about TV advertising that I learned that evening.

The Intent of Advertising

Why is it that some people seem to be succeeding at everything they do? Why do they move ahead by leaps and bounds while others, much more talented, it seems are not even getting anywhere?

Stop Planning And Start Doing To Achieve Your Goals

The answer lies in the way we all approach things. Successful people have a plan and they back their plans with action while others either do not plan or don’t work their plan.

Success is a planned event. Success doesn't happen by accident. It does not happen because you found your mojo.

There is only one boss – the customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else.      ~Sam Walton

Do you realize everyone has a continuous stream of internal monologue running in their heads all the time? While walking, reading, listening to a song, talking to a friend, eating food or doing almost anything – we are always talking to ourselves in our own mind.

Negative Thoughts Lower Your Self-Esteem

Our internal monologue has a powerful impact on how we feel, how we behave, and how we live our lives. Unfortunately, most of us are largely unaware of it even happening, while much of what goes on within our mind is automatically negative. Too often, this internal monologue consists of extremely unhelpful thoughts that often hinder our effectiveness, productivity and attitude.

The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking. ―Albert Einstein  [tweet this]

Some of the dominant thoughts which occupy your mind and affect your mindset in a negative way must be controlled and be diluted intentionally.

If you have known me for any length of time, you know that I attend many business conferences every year. I usually attend a least two or three every quarter. In fact,  as I write this, I am getting ready for the next 3 day major business conference coming up on the East Coast next month.

Efficient website setup requires an efficient website hosting server. I realized it only after I struggled for a while. I remember struggling to identify a better website hosting company when my pages used to take about 20 seconds and more to load.

During those days, I had hosted all my websites with GoDaddy, not knowing any better option.

Among many good choices, I had not considered InMotion Hosting as a viable option yet because there were not too many people talking about it.

I still didn’t switch to BlueHost, even though they have great reputation, because I wanted to find out if there could be anything better. I wasn’t going to make the move until I was absolutely sure that it was the best option for me.

The richest people in the world look for and build networks. Everyone else looks for work.      ~Robert Kiyosaki [tweet this]

It is true that social networking and internet marketing have changed a lot of things in the world in last a few years. People’s perspective has been rapidly changing about networking. More and more businesses are adapting to the networking business model.

Promotions of the Free Enterprise System, the rise of social media and declining job markets have caused a significant increase in the number of independent consultants. That means more people are choosing entrepreneurship as their career path.

Social Media Marketing For Business Success

If you’re an expert at anything, you have an opportunity to start a consulting business and become a known expert in your niche. You don't have to be in some really cool business to succeed. You don't even need to have a large marketing budget.

Instead, you just need a plan, a strategy to market yourself to the right target market in the right manner. For example, look at these examples of people who applied the same concept and made a fortune:
