oGoing Interviews Mark Hartsell of CEO Advisor

clock October 4, 2012 08:40 by author Ogoing Team

Mark Hartsell, CEO & President of CEO Advisor

How do you make the Owner, President or CEO of a company better?

More often than not, the entrepreneur has too much on his or her plate, is wearing multiple hats and working 24/7. How can someone help this entrepreneur focus and do more? That is a tall order indeed. Meet oGoing Pro Member Mark Hartsell, the CEO and President of CEO Advisor. He is on a mission to grow the CEOs, Owners and Presidents of young and emerging small businesses and startups in Orange County and Southern California. Mark helped me earlier this year on the oGoing business, marketing and financial plans, and getting them ready for potential investors or partners. I had the opportunity to ask Mark a few questions about his company, and what's going on. Here are the five answers that can help you grow your business:

1. What led you to start CEO Advisor? How is the progress?
Prior to selling my software company to Digital River, I focused on what my post-sale career would look like.  It was clear to me that I wanted to spend the rest of my career as a small business advisor helping entrepreneurs grow to the next level toward a successful exit of their own.  CEO Advisor has grown every year since its inception in 2004 and I really enjoy engaging with and helping CEOs tackle their many challenges.

2. What are your key services? What problems do they solve?
CEO Advisor focuses on the challenges and opportunities that every CEO and small business owner encounters.  These issues span across the entire business, including preparation for fund raising, fund raising, accounting, operations, sales, marketing, mergers and acquisitions, and my services solve problems in all of these areas.

3. What is your favorite customer success story?
I have many customer success stories, but I most like seeing my clients grow and prosper, as in two clients that are currently on the Orange County Business Journal - Fastest Growing Companies list out this week.

4. Why do customers love CEO Advisor? What makes you different?
My clients value my services due to my broad range of business expertise, and one-to-one meetings with a hands-on approach ensuring progress on a weekly basis.  I am also goal and accountability driven and my clients like this, as well.  My biggest differentiator is my hands-on approach to producing work and deliverables for clients each week versus the verbal coaching that I see in this field.

5. How do you define success within your company?
I measure the success of my company by the success of my clients.  When my clients are motivated, happy and seeing results this is very gratifying to me for my efforts.  Additionally, I enjoy what I do to such a high degree that it simply does not seem like work.  That is real success.

Using Social Networking for Marketing Your Small Business

clock May 13, 2012 13:12 by author Ogoing Team

By now, you must be familiar with the many benefits of online social networking for small business marketing. But if this is your first time to venture into the world of social media marketing, here are some suggestions to effectively harness social networking sites to build your brand and promote your business.

  1. Use social networking sites to familiarize people with your area of expertise and create interest in your business. For example, if you are starting a software company, you can post videos on your Facebook wall offering tips and troubleshooting advice on commonly-encountered PC problems.
  2. Build relationships with your customers by maintaining conversations with them. One of the most essential social networking for business marketing techniques is engaging with your customers, and one of the ways you can do that is by using your Facebook wall or Twitter account to solicit feedback from them about your products or customer service, and then responding promptly and directly to any concerns that may be raised.
  3. Use social media to target a specific customer base. Sites such as Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn allow you to create ads that are targeted to particular user groups, i.e. college students or business professionals, based on their profiles. You can use this social networking for small business strategy to boost sales by promoting your services to people who are genuinely interested in availing of them.
  4. Use social networking sites to run promotions that will not only get new customers to sample your products but also reward loyal customers by giving them discounts. For example, you can use your Facebook Fan page to offer printable coupons that can be redeemed for discounts or Tweet your followers about an upcoming sale.
  5. Use your Facebook and Google+ pages to make customers more connected to the company by posting greetings and company updates directly from you. Customers will appreciate hearing from you about what the company is doing to improve its products as well as the latest updates on its activities.

If you have not yet established a presence in a social networking site, why not start by signing up for an account with oGoing? oGoing is an easy-to-use social networking site that allows you to build a unique online profile for your small business, as well as establish links, not only with your customers but also with employees, colleagues and other oGoing community members.

Small Business Social Media and Social Networking

clock April 28, 2012 14:14 by author Ogoing Team
Boost your small business on Ogoing small business social network
If you own, manage or promote your small business, have you joined a social network or two? What results have you seen from joining a social network for your business? Simply put, has it been worth your while? We are talking about social networks which are external for your small business.

There are many social networks to consider today of entrepreneurs! What network works best for your company? What criteria would you use, as you evaluate social networking that helps you boost your business?

Here are the top three reasons why you should get started on a social network or two for your business:

1. Get more prospects and customers
- Ask yourself, why your small business does any marketing at all? What is the primary reason for having a company website? Where do you find your prospects? How do you convert your prospects into real customers? A social network must ultimately result in driving more leads for your business. Although the lead funnel may not happen overnight, it must happen within weeks to months. There is a common misconception that when a business has more followers or fans, it will drive more sales. The quality of contacts matter the most! Your business may have thousands of followers, but very few may be interested in buying anything. How would you drive quality leads? Social Networking is not a get rich quick game. Rather, it takes time and patience to build a real following (unless you are an established brand or celebrity such as Coke or Lady Gaga). Be real on a social network! Share expert information and insights. Provide free stuff, discounts, coupons or loyalty points. Keep your readers intrigued with quality information. The more you stay true, the more prospects and customers you will garner, eventually!  

2. Increase customer loyalty
- This by far has been the biggest claim to fame for small business social networking. A social network brings you closer to your customers and gets them engaged. In some cases, your customers may get too close! On the one hand, your business can cleverly leverage social networks to provide better customer service, get proactive customer feedback, obtain recommendations, and even get customers to share great ideas. However, if you open yourself for customer service, get ready to hear an earful. Customers won't shy away from sharing their negative experiences over and over again publicly. Hear them out! Be a great listener. Apologize. And follow through by providing excellent customer service. Turn that negative customer experience into a positive one! An irate customer who gets great customer service can become a happy and loyal customer for life. Icing on the cake: Customers see that you care!

Now that your small business has opened this new social network channel for providing transparent customer service, stage two will include asking these customers for feedback on everything... for instance, a new marketing campaign and asking them to vote for the one they really like, or a new product feature or enhancement and hearing their thoughts. The loyal customers would be more than happy to share favorable recommendations and testimonials. The unhappy customers will likewise share negative views. Be ready for both! The goal for your local business is to get more positive reviews; at least four stars or better. Better the reviews and ratings, better the potential of attracting new prospects. Finally, receptive customers will likely share new ideas about your brand, current products, competition, and trends. Social Networks can act as great vehicles for increasing customer loyalty, and extracting maximum value from your customers.

3. Become The brand
- A social network is quite possibly the biggest brand equalizer. It sure is great to have the brand and following of a Nike or Starbucks; but, by the same token, a greater brand means even greater scrutiny. You are always under the microscope of corporate social responsibility, and what you think, say and do is analyzed 24/7 by the press, customers, competition and everyone at large. Say or do one bad thing, and your brand gets a huge hit! And in most cases, an irreparable one. On the other hand, if you are a small, niche brand, the social network can do wonders for your business! You can become the most relevant brand for your market by doing the things that matter most for your customers, partners, suppliers, and the community. How you become The Brand? By doing good business. By delivering quality service. By sharing profits. By helping good causes. By caring for your community. Each good action that you undertake adds to your brand value. These actions will transform your brand into the most powerful brand in the marketplace. It takes time to build that brand, and become the word-of-mouth brand that resonates with Kleenex, FedEx or WebEx. Sharing and Caring go hand in hand with Networking. Brand prominence can't happen without investing into planning, goal setting and executing, and staying the course. Hiccups will happen. However, if you follow the best practices of delighting your customers over and over again, you can establish a strong local brand presence, one that customers will remember and recommend.

What social network can do all of the above for your small business? LinkedIn is great for professionals, Twitter works for celebrities and big brands, Facebook is amazing for consumers and friends, Yelp is superb for reviews and retailers, Google Plus is great for getting that jump start, YouTube is tops for business videos and stories, Foursquare is great for checking in, Pinterest gives you an online pinboard, and the list goes on...

If you are a small business that wants it all, a great business profile, a place to promote your products and services, offer latest deals, find new customers, make new connections, and boost your brand, take a look at Ogoing.

What is Small Business Social Media Marketing?

clock March 15, 2012 16:41 by author Ogoing Team

What Is Small Business Social Media Marketing and How Can It Help My Company?
Small business social media marketing has emerged in recent years as a popular way for independent businesses to promote themselves without the need to spend a lot of money. Unlike traditional marketing methods, social media marketing is less about selling and more about building relationships with customers so that they’ll be more willing to deal with you. These relationships are particularly important for small businesses since winning the trust of leads is vital to converting them to customers.

Key other benefits of small business social media marketing include:
  1. Lower marketing costs compared with traditional marketing and promotion methods.
  2. Using social media marketing is more likely to deliver qualified leads to small businesses by creating a community with their customers.
  3. Small business owners can enjoy results from social media marketing with minimal time commitment. Studies have shown that entrepreneurs who commit a minimum of six hours a week to their social media marketing can already see a measurable increase of traffic to their business site.
What are some of the most popular social media sites used in small business social media marketing?
  1. Facebook. With some 150 million members in the US, creating a Facebook page is not only a great way to tell your customers about your business, but also develop connections with them. In particular, many small businesses have made effective use of the Facebook Wall to leave notices, videos and other content for their fans, as well as allowing customers to post their own content.
  2. Twitter. While more popularly associated with celebrities and politicians tweeting the latest updates about their activities and their personal lives, many businesses have also used the microblogging site to introduce new products and services as well as telling customers about upcoming promotions, events and sales.
  3. Company blogs. Although blogs may seem old-fashioned compared with newer social media sites, they continue to be an effective way for companies to deliver information to their customers. Just as importantly, blogs also allow customers to participate in the conversation by posting in the comments section of blog posts.
  4. Emerging social media services including Google+, Pinterest, Foursquare, Instagram, Yelp and many more. Google+ is poised to make the most significant impact since it is being integrated with Google search and key Google services such as Google Places. Google+ now has over 100 million users.

One small business social media site you should be aware of, however, is oGoing, an exclusive small business social network. Although a relative newcomer in the social media field, oGoing has already made quite an impact among small businesses looking to connect locally with their customers. And oGoing is deeply integrated with Facebook and Twitter, allowing you to use all three social media sites together as part of an integrated social media marketing strategy. Apart from connecting with existing clients, oGoing is also a great way to find new customers. Check out the fastest growing social network for small business today: Join Now

Social Media Marketing for Small Business

clock March 5, 2012 06:18 by author Ogoing Team

Social Media Marketing is an important aspect of running a business that should never be overlooked. A product should be hyped up in order for it to be visible to consumers and end users. Products in the market today that have benefited from outstanding marketing hypes usually tend to do better as opposed to products that have been released with little to no fanfare. For example, Apple and the new iPhone 4S and iPad 2 products that were announced in 2011. Both the iPhone 4S and the iPad 2 are upgrades from their predecessors, the iPhone 4 and the iPad respectively. Although in terms of look and feel, the difference between the two sets of devices is not revolutionary (except of course the cool white iPhone 4S and the white iPad 2), because of the marketing hype generated by Apple, Steve Jobs launch presentation of the iPad 2, and timely online marketing through blogs and review sites, when the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 were released, they were selling like hotcakes.

Apple is a huge company, and its marketing and hype generating machinery is a behemoth compared to what most small and medium sized businesses have. So how do small businesses compete against large corporations? The answer: Through Internet marketing and social media marketing. The growth of social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and others has also leveled the playing field for small businesses. Social Networking for small business websites including Ogoing.com are capitalizing on this trend and have opened up a whole new platform for small businesses to succeed in this economy.

So why is social networking for small business or businesses important? And why should small businesses use social media marketing as a venue to market or promote their products or services. The scope and coverage of social media is far-reaching and it covers all demographics, in particular local markets. There is no shortage of people to market and promote a small business’ products to. And by the same token, there is no shortage of publicity and visibility for a product if it is featured on a relevant social network.

There have been a lot of good products that have gone the way of the dodo just because they weren’t marketed well. The competition nowadays isn’t about what features differentiate the product from others. Companies are now competing on ways to promote the product and to show off the product's strengths. Social networking for small business or business to business is important because it empowers small businesses to take a huge step forward in terms of marketing their products and services. Social networking for small business website including Ogoing.com is leading the charge in that area.
