Do you find yourself scrolling past articles with titles like “7 Ways to Increase Your Email Subscribers by 20%” or “How to Gain More Followers on Social Media” because they all say the same thing? You’re not alone. It’s called list fatigue and it’ll ruin most of your marketing efforts if left unchecked.  List fatigue happens when people are over-exposed to emails that don’t provide any new information or are not keeping a pulse on what the reader actually wants to be consuming. I know you’re busy. You’ve got a million things on your plate, not to mention the fact…

JLVAS - Marketing 101 - Don't Cast a Wide Net You'll Catch Nobody

I have a theory that only a few digital marketing experts out there actually know anything about fishing. When you read something online about marketing, people often bring up fishing. There is a parallel between catching a big fish and landing a new customer. It’s an easy metaphor. That is why a lot of the advice you hear about how to fish for new clients is kind of terrible. They might know marketing, but they don’t know the first thing about fishing! Okay, so, for myself, I’ve been fishing countless times in my life! I grew up in Utah, and…

How to Super-Charge Your Email List By Offering a Fantastic Lead Magnet!

JLVAS - Lead Magnet

When you see a “sign up for my newsletter” on a website, do you click “Yes?” I would put money on your answer being “No, of course not!” And I understand why. We are conditioned to HATE email. Every time you check your email, you likely have dozens of messages sitting in your inbox telling you that “Won a free cruise” or “Your Outlook Email is About to Be Cancelled!” Spam has ruined email, plain and simple. So, why on earth would anyone want to give their email out to a random website?  With all of that in mind, when…

JLVAS New Blog Images-9 Stages of Webinar

When was the last time you attended an in-person seminar or event? I’m going to take a wild guess and say it was sometime before March 2020! Personally, I don’t much miss them because a much more powerful, targeted, and accessible tool has taken their place. A successful webinar! For years, remote seminars and events were a staple in the business world. The problem was that they were expensive and somewhat inconvenient affairs. Though potentially informative to certain people, they usually only attracted limited audiences.  Using real-time video software like Zoom or my favorite Demio, small business owners and entrepreneurs can…

JLVAS New Blog Images- 7 steps to launching podcast

It’s difficult to believe that many people didn’t know what a podcast was only a few years ago.  While podcasts have been around for 20 years, it wasn’t until the last decade that their popularity exploded. Today, they’ve mostly replaced radio as the primary form of audio entertainment and information.  And the best thing about podcasts is that anyone can start one. With incredibly low overhead, podcasts are an ideal form of digital marketing for small business owners looking to make the most of their marketing dollars. That said, starting a podcast isn’t easy.

How to Create and Schedule a Year’s Worth of Instagram Stories in One Morning

JLVAS Blog Images-Schedule a year's worth of Instagram stories in one morning

How often do you check out the Instagram Stories that show up at the top of your account? As a digital marketing expert, I think that Instagram Stories are a brilliant addition to Instagram (and the other platforms like Twitter that are introducing similar features). Instagram Stories are a limited-time form of social media: short-form videos only available for 24 hours. While this might seem like a downside, it’s actually a big plus! People rush to watch the Stories while available, boosting the number of eyes on your posts! As videos tend to have a well, video component to them,…
