Organic Reach through Hashtags

You can increase Your Reach, Traffic and Ultimately Sales, by using Hashtags to your Advantage!

Hashtags are meta tags, which categorize posts on the internet, including on Social Media to make it easier for someone searching a specific topic to find content posts about them.
Using Hashtags strategically and consistently will help you to grow the number of people who can find your brand and buy your products and services.

Hashtags work wonders, especially on Instagram, however, as many accounts use them nowadays it is no longer enough to add a few random Hastags, once in a while, as that will not get you on top of the list.
If you think you need a massive following, you may be surprised to learn that this is not the case.

I consistently apply a Hastag Strategy  (same as I advice all my clients to do) and it has helped me (and them) to increase my reach, following and sales.

Take a look at a few examples of my most recent posts and how they have been positioned;
When you look at them closely, you will see how many posts are in the category, and yet mine are top posts!!! Yours can too!!!

Using the Hashtag ‘#Resources,’ for example, has positioned my post #1, in a total of 122,295 total posts!’#Strategy’ has 762,155 public posts and my posts is the #1 Top Post! I have scored Top Post #1 & #2, as you can see with the ‘#muenster’ Hashtag, which is a medium sized city in West Germany where I grew up!

I share all about positioning and how to apply a Hashtag Strategy in my latest book ‘Social Media Marketing: #2 in the Start-Ups on a Shoestring Budget Series’, which you can get via Amazon.
By the way, you do not need to have a Kindle to read the book, you can read it on your phone, online or by using the Amazon app too!

Ultimate Success Smackdown!

Ultimate Success Naomi Mc Laughlan

Goal setting is the true secret to success in any area of life. But although setting a goal may seem simple, achieving it is usually another question altogether.

Why is that?

Because you will never achieve your goals unless you: (1) know exactly what you want, (2) are passionate about your goal, and (3) have a solid, realistic plan of action. This is what marks the difference between nebulous dreams and wishes – and truly achievable goals!

Many obstacles and challenges will fly right in your face when you’re going after a goal.

Here are 5 Time-tested Methods that will Help get the Success You Deserve;

1. Know exactly what your goal is

Your first job is to discover exactly what your goal is. What will achieving that goal really look like? Be as specific as possible about exactly what your desired end result is. Your success will be a measure of your clarity – since an achievable goal plan cannot be created around a nebulous “dream.”

If your goal is to create a more successful business, what will that look like? Are you thinking in terms of simply hiring someone else to give you more free time? Are you looking for a very specific monthly profit? Or can your goal be best expressed in terms of a certain lifestyle?

Regardless of what you want, the best way to get it is to first clarify exactly what you want in as much detail as possible. This can be hard work. But without a clear mental picture, you’ll never have the focus required to achieve your goal.

2. Be willing to pay the opportunity cost aka “entry fee”

Success takes dedicated planning and effort. In a way it’s like building a house. In the beginning all you have is a rough concept. Then you develop a complete set of plans – and you immediately move closer to success. The same is true of creating a better lifestyle, or a more successful business.

But there’s always an *entry fee* to be paid for success.

The entry fee?

Creating more success in your business may mean less recreational time. Writing your own book may require less TV. Being closer to your children may require adjusting your work or social activities.

It’s the “full glass” deal. If your life (your time) is already full to the top, there’s no room for something new. The entry fee is carving out the time to create that something new.

3. Focus on your goal every day

I’m sure you probably want to achieve your goal as fast as possible. That’s why clear mental focus is so very important.

Consistent daily focus is absolutely necessary to “burn in” the new neural pathways you need to create your new goal. Without daily focus, the old mental habits that have kept you from your goal will continue to take over.

This happens automatically – since these old habits replay 24/7 deep in your subconscious mind. The only way to override subconscious anti-success messages is to consciously focus on what you DO want – and build new neural networks!

That’s why success is an every-day event.

Re-commit to your goal every day. Don’t let your goal take a back seat to the daily tasks and distractions that will try to take over. Life WILL try to get in your way. Just get, and stay, on course every day. Focus on your goal, and on success!

4. Get passionate

One of the most powerful tools in your “success tool box” is having real passion for your goal.

Why passion?

Because intense passionate desire for your goal will help you burn in those new neural pathways even faster. Many, many scientific studies have shown that intense emotion (passion) is a key success tool.

PLUS (and this is really a *big* plus), intense passion will also help you rapidly override any inappropriate old “failure messages” stored in your subconscious mind.

5. Take consistent action

In many ways, actually taking action can be the most difficult step. Successful goal achievement is built by taking one small action after another.

How I discover valuable information on the WWW & My bookshelf

Search NaomiMcLaughlanI find the internet extremely useful mainly because it saves me a lot of time. When I try to find something out about a new topic, I can find it almost every time no matter what I am looking for.

The information provided broadens my knowledge immense and allows me to access information I would be researching offline probably for weeks or even month.

The word wide web offers everyone to upload whatever the person feels need to be published. As there is almost no restriction to what is put on the websites there are lots of subjective and questionable ones online. Therefore, I am precautious on what kind of information might be the ‘real deal’ and what might be inaccurate or nonsense.

With this in mind, I consider the information found and use the CARS checklist;

  • Credibility
  • Accuracy
  • Reasonableness
  • Support

I also often crosscheck information from several sources.  I apply common sense in my research and ask myself whether the website is a private or commercial website or whether the information comes from an organisation, University etc.?

For someone who has never used the internet for research before, it might be best to stick to online libraries or real books.

Depending on the goals I set for myself I try to read as much as I can about the subject and as I just described above about the overload of information on the World Wide Web, I have to admit that I still fancy real books, as they have been carefully crafted and decrease the time for finding valuable and valid knowledge.

Have a look at my bookshelf – My most favourite books I have read so far are;

Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, Get Rich, Lucky Bitch by Denise Duffield-Thomas, The Secret by Rhonda Byrne
