21st Century Quick Guide to Internet Advertising and Integration

The Internet, although only a few decades old as a commercialized media has proven itself not only to be a very viable advertising solution but has dramatically influenced the present conditions and future state of how we buy, sell, communicate and obtain information. There are currently several option models to promote your business or offerings. Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Banner or Display Ads (CPM), Sponsorships, Direct e-mail, Cost per Click (CPC) and Cost per Acquisition (CPA) models and Social Media. Although any responsible planning most likely will develop a Total-Mix and integrated philosophy at this time the CPC model has some immediate benefits. In this venue you as the advertiser will gain almost immediate impact, only pay if an individual clicks through to your site, thus giving you potentially targeted traffic looking for what you have to offer. The statistics that can be captured are invaluable in determining ROI and analytics for future business planning. Like any other marketing solution there are winners and losers in this game. What makes it even more challenging is that the rules and opportunities can change monthly, so it is critical for optimum performance to have internal staff that is intimate with the industry or work with a value add consultant that can guide your company responsibly through the process.

Why Use a Coach?

 

Coaching is an exploding profession. Daily, professionals and individuals are experiencing the benefits from their work with a coach. Coaching is still in its infancy in terms of reach and understanding, which is why I like to take a moment to put it in perspective. Years ago life was not as complicated; a business would have one person in charge. Today you need a CEO, COO, CMO, CTO and a bunch of VP's or least a partner. Personally you might have had a doctor years ago, but today you need at least 5 medical specialists, a financial adviser, insurance broker, a lawyer and a host of other supporting entities depending on how complicated your life is. So with all my clients I describe the benefits with an analogy that is understandable: We are all familiar with the Time Share industry. Do you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to spend on a second home? Most people do not, and even if you did, you probably don't have the time to use it to justify the cost. So time-shares allow you to own a fraction of this very beneficial home with others. So it becomes affordable and practical, while still giving you the full benefit when you are there. Coaching works in exactly the same way. Do you have the need or the budget to hire an expensive six-figure professional? Maybe not, so why not hire a piece of him or her, and reap the full benefits while in use. Think about it, even if you were to enroll in my most beneficial program, your annual outlay would be less than a junior secretary's salary. There is really no down side to working with a coach, and the upside can be remarkable. Below is my summary of 12 benefits you can receive by working with a coach. Just imagine personally benefiting from just one of these improvements per month for the next twelve months…. endless possibilities?…..you BET!

12 Reasons to Use a Coach
by Jon Anthony Astore

 

You Deserve It

Who says you cannot have a personal coach? The most admired professions for their achievements in our society have always had them; athletes, professional sports players, actors, politicians, musicians and so on. Now coaching is obtainable for the common man. It is without question one of the quickest ways to empower your life to improve it and reach your goals. Life is short; your capabilities are long…maximize the experience of the journey with a coach.

Regardless of WHO or for WHAT

There really is no one who could not benefit greatly from a coaching experience. Today all walks of life are experiencing true positive RESULTS towards issues or life goals. From CEO's needing a confidential sounding board to specialized professionals that need assistance in running portions of their business, to start ups that need strategic planning, to individuals that are striving to accelerate their personal development and growth coaching can benefit anyone. Anyone who does not on a consistent basis feel on a 1-10 rating satisfied to at least an 8 in regards to their personal health, family/social, career situation and life in general, should explore all opportunities to get there.

A Safe Place

Do you have a place you can go to reflect, focus on yourself and achieve clear vision? Do you have a sounding board to kick around the "What ifs?" in your life. Do you have a place where only good possibilities can evolve, a place where you can let your guard down to maximize your inner energy and creativity? That is the place you will develop and journey to with your coach.

Truth without Consequences

Your coach will be completely committed to your success with no other motives other than to help you improve, grow and be more satisfied with life. Think about the relationship you have with your family members, business associates or friends. Even the most trusting relationships are tied with emotions. Sometimes the people that care the most can stunt your growth or success path. A completely confidential and trusting relationship with your coach allows you to navigate effectively and precisely through major opportunities or challenges in your professional or personal life.

Personal Evaluation and Growth

It is hard to evaluate one's self and be honest. Your coach will help you analyze your current assets, issues, roadblocks, lifestyle and liabilities. Your coach will help you focus on and build your strengths to maximize the benefits to you. Then together you will prioritize growth areas to focus on. Let's face --it we all want more of everything life has to offer-- that is what motivates us. Find out how to grow professionally, personally, intellectually and financially in a shorter amount of time with less energy and a less stressful journey.

Transformational Experience

We all have had an experience with a person(s) that touched our lives so deeply; it had a profound and long lasting effect on who we are today. It might have been a teacher a parent, a mentor or someone that did not even know you that you were inspired or motivated by. Think about how beneficial these experiences have been in your life. Now think about your life if you had these types of transformational experiences on a regular basis. Not to say that it happens all the time, but this is the ultimate goal between coach and client…and it does happen A LOT!

Major Transitions and Shifts

Life is a journey without a roadmap. Many times in life you will be faced with life altering transitions. Transitions occur concerning professional growth, reengineering a new career or on the personal side; individual growth, separation, conflict or health issues. It's going to happen, you can count on it. To have a personal coach who is unconditionally on your side without the emotional equation of loved ones can help you visualize "outside the box." How many times have you said in your life, "I would have done it differently knowing what I know now." Your coach can help you see and navigate beyond today's events for a better and smoother transition towards tomorrow.

Working Smarter… then Harder

There are few things these days that have not been done or experienced. Coaches in general have significant business and life experiences and are a wealth of resources. Why recreate the wheel? How much is it worth to save 3 months of trial and error? Discuss your personal plan with someone that might have been there or have experience and contacts with those who have.

 

Balancing Time

The only aspect that remains the same in our world is the fact that no matter how life accomplishments and complexities grow, you still have only 24 hours in a day to get them done. Now look at what you have to deal with compared to your parent's generation. It is a very challenging balancing act to accomplish and manage success in business, family and personal well-being. This is a constant struggle and complaint of most people these days. Your coach can help you identify priorities, create time saving techniques and deliver recommendations to ultimately get you more of what you want out of your 24 hour day.

Master Plan Your Future

We all are not as fortunate as Michael Jackson who knew he wanted to be a rock n roll star at age 5. Many individuals never really find their destiny or ultimate peace in life. You plan for your business, right? Why not plan your personal life? Your coach will dig deep to find those inner life ambitions, help you stretch your vision to create a plan, work with you to set a course and measure progress so that you know what you are working for and when you plan to get there!

Qualities of a Coach

There are many types of coaches out there with different specialties or focused areas of practice. What is consistent and common between them can be summarized using two major observations: One, coaches have extensive business, life, resources and situational experiences. Second, they have a passion for helping others. You have heard the expression, "You are who you hang around with." How many coaches would you like to hang around with?

Significant Return on Investment (ROI)

Everything in life sooner or later has to be at least partially evaluated on the cost vs. benefits formula. Coaching should be no exception to investment evaluation. We all know how many self-help gurus and products there are out there. That's just the point, "self help." A coaching relationship is the only true one-on-one self-improvement program out there that does all the work with you. Industry wide studies have shown a return on investment to be 5-25 times your cost in beneficial value to you. Obviously each situation produces different degrees of success, but one can potentially see benefit within the first 30-minute session.
