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.

Speak Your Business in 30 Seconds or Less(tm) with Ann Convery

Ann ConveryAnn Talks About How to Increase Your Sales, Leads and Clients in 2 Minutes

How would you like to attract up to 50% more cash, clients and business in the next few weeks?

Effortlessly attract new business in 30 seconds or less with no visible sales technique. Anywhere. Any place. Any time.

I met Ann at a training given by Gary W. Goldstein, the producer of the movie “Pretty Woman”.

Gary was teaching his course “Scaling the Great Wall of Hollywood” and he brought Ann in to speak to the group about how to take their current elevator pitch and update it so that it would, not just let people know what you did, but it would also be able to touch the person in the core of their brain and get them to get excited about what you did. – JW

So after sitting down with her for a personal consultation, I was amazed at what she had taught me in a 15 minute meeting.

My expectation was that she would help me refine my pitch somewhat and that would be it, but refine is not the word. Propel to a new quantum place is a better description.

Update: I recorded a video with Ann at Author 101 in Los Angeles. Although we go into much more detail in this podcast we do have a very interesting conversation I know you will enjoy. Here is the link to go check it out. http://onpurposemagazine.com/2012/04/11/ann-convery-video-interview-at-author-101/

Here was my pitch:

Q. What do you do?

A. I consult with businesses to help them use Twitter.

A great short pitch right? I would say it and get little or no response. “Oh that’s great! Which way to the cheese platter” or “I don’t know how to use that Twitter thing yet”.

Ann told me about the Lizard or Old Brain and how it needed to hear what it wanted or it would shut down and put into hibernation, the conscious brain.

We took my pitch and changed it to…

A. I help people like you increase their targeted client or prospect list by 1000+% in 3 months!

BANG…

At first I said sounds great… then I used the pitch. Most everyone replied with Really! How do you do that?, Can you do that for me., Wow I could use that service., Wow, I have a friend that really needs that…

The difference in response was night and day. Ann has hit on something really basic and useful and you have to listen to this recording because Ann goes into detail and shares over twice as much as she shared with me during that first meeting.

You will walk away with tools and strategies to make a difference in how you talk to new and old clients that will help you increase and propel your business to new heights in less than 2 minutes…

A NOTE: Ann is great at the elevator pitch, but it only begins there. She can help you will all aspects of corporate and business communications and marketing. – JW Najarian
