Every 6 months something seems to change as far as banner size, profile size, header sizes on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, Pinterest and it can be daunting to keep up with all of them. So found this, the cheat sheet you need to make sure you're always looking good!
We are usually up at the crack of dawn because of all the animals but today we needed to drive toward Charlotte to get Katherine's truck back in time for me to finish writing the special offer and getting it up on this site. By the way, it was my first pdf to sell and will only be up between shows.
Got back, attached PayPal to this site (just changed it to an ecommerce site so I can actually sell my digital creations (audio, video, and pdfs and whatever else I come up with that will make your life better and feed my rescues).
How to Prepare to keep your animals cool if your AC goes out...and I'll try to keep my mouth shut up to a point!
This is me after I learned how to shoot in landscape and be upright on Facebook Live Streaming! Yea!
Katherine Gillis knows me. That's the first how. Take a look. She describes herself, what she's doing, shows two examples and invites you to LIKE her Facebook page and I bet you cannot resist.
You know how you start doing one thing and it leads to your having to do another, and then another? Well, I call it string theory. I set out to optimize SEO on this site since I've upgraded it to set up digital information products. (You have a lot to look forward to.)
I watched Weebly videos on my YouTube site. That was mind blowing because there were so many. Then I noticed new things about YouTube which I had not before. Things like something called "CARDS." Apparently as many people liked them as others did not. They are replacing annotations on YouTube videos (text that pops up over whatever you're watching; not necessarily an ad because you are the one doing it.) The "CARDS," I learned would allow me to have what I'll call pop up text appear on any one of my videos from the beginning or I could put it in the middle or end the video with some invitation (like visit my website, buy my books,) but I couldn't say fund my gofundme because I'd have to be a nonprofit. (Or I could add a FAN CARD if I get 1000 subscribers. Want to subscribe?) I couldn't add in my online school because it's not on their list. So until there are more choices for me you won't be inundated with anything from me, unless of course I feel it will serve you.
Side tracked creating one "CARD" on one video on my YouTube channel. Arriving there I realized I didn't like my channel art any more. What logo would best represent someone now who will be selling (I give so much away but the cats have gotta eat) digital information products, the books I've authored, perhaps sponsorship of The Carol Butler Show when I live stream or pointings to my online course school which is GOING TO LAUNCH SOON but as yet is but a blog destination to keep up with when I launch. I've been out to launch for months, but it is a rare course which will officially open my school at www.ofcourseware.xyz and this is why quality is paramount for me. I've always thought anything I put my signature on is going to be great.
Used my considerable knowledge from another lifetime ago to create the perfect fit for my new channel art which I have for the moment decided would be Mack the Cat (one of my many rescues) looking up. With a nod to my school (no one else will get yet) I placed the words: "Of Course Saying Yes To Learning How To." Then there's that wonderful suggested "things are looking up" photo of Mack the Cat.
This caused me to recognize that my SEO (for those of you off the planet; many of my friends, this simply means Search Engine Optimization). If you don't have it, those in the outer space of the massive Internet will NEVER find you. Rather tricky business it is. Companies hire people just to optimize it every single day. I've been so busy with all the other things like learning Mailchimp (monkey delivers your mail if you give people a reason to get in their mailbox), Leadpages which doesn't play well with Weebly, but "boxes" quite well with Leadboxes (meaning, I'm going to give you a reason to get into your head and you will like me for it). Hopefully you will LIKE me at: https://www.facebook.com/carolkingbutler/. That's my Facebook Page (meaning business Facebook location as opposed to Facebook Profile which is known as my personal Facebook Timeline). Confused? I know.
Weebly referred me to a company that would help me do my SEO and hold my hand. That took another 30 minutes and I'm not sure if it's working, but then I'm not entirely set up to have it benefit me currently. Digital Products are not available. Got a lot of building to do here.
I just put my instructor for the upcoming course "Become A Fearless Traditional Retoucher & Spotter" on Twitter, something I need to use more of but being verbose, it isn't my best fit with a limit of 140 characters. That could be the name of my next book (kidding). Katherine Gillis is very smart. She will practice Twitter connecting after she finishes more Ansel Adams retouching that just came in. Who would have thought Ansel Adams would be the bell saving her from eternity with me at my computer making sure 5 Facebook "pages" are operational (I have what I call a practice one so if I totally screw up something I'm not sure will work correctly, I go there. Yes, feel free to see some practiced Live Streams (very short lived...I take most of them down not long after I publish) at Minute Promotional Videos.
Now you can watch mistakes happen live sometimes. Well I do create some promotional videos, usually Powtoons to send to people. The monkey (Mailchimp) delivers them. They take quite a while to write and produce which is why they only go out once a month.
As I'm writing this post I'm getting notifications that my computer backup has failed. It's Labor Day and I can't contact the offsite company I use to be my second saver of computer creations. I now must hope Time Machine and a LaCie External Hard Drive don't decide to die before Wednesday when I can get to that. My newer Toshiba external hard drive was a must have, since I retired my other iMac and needed to wipe it clean. Still valuable stuff on that baby. Giving it to a friend who will not be doing the high tech type things I am (whether I want to or not).
My legs are now cramped from sitting at this computer all day, rushing to do one thing, running into another, interrupted by cats and a dog for feedings, to wash their morning bowls, to change the squirrels, cardinals and finches' water and if it were not for them I'd probably have chronic dry eye...hey wait, I do. If not for them I probably would never be interrupted by the string theory...unlikely.
Much to do. I know I don't have the time you do. My time flies so fast I reach out to touch it. I'm always engrossed in whatever I am doing, totally absorbed by curiosity, deadlines, frustration or like a mother, who sound asleep, hears a baby goo-goo two rooms away, I'm off to do that other part of my life and come back and start where I'd tried to go earlier today when I got strung along by the "we're all important" and "you have to address this now" string theory! Everything is connected, but not sequentially.
This was a first for me. Wow. Fun, hot, colorful, supportive and had a great time. Did a couple of live streams on Saturday as the (CBS) Carol Butler Show but used up about a month of Verizon in one hour because there is no strong wi-fi to connect to uptown Charlotte for live streaming. So Sunday my iphone became my camera and I edited this to be as short as I could. Long, but interesting I believe. VERY hot and I wish people had not brought their dogs because the pavement was hot AND some of the dogs were on the verge of heat stroke. I suggested to Charlotte Pride staff that they create a mister tunnel next year. They cannot do that because they are not connected to Charlotte in that way and certainly couldn't say it was for dogs which they asked people to leave at home. But boy could all of us PEOPLE have used a mister...Despite all, cannot remember being around such a mass of polite and gracious people. Enjoy!
I know you’re someone who is committed to achieving financial freedom and changing the world for the better.
I know this because you recently requested Joseph Michael's Easy Course Creation Bundle and cared enough to open and read my email.
Here’s the deal.
There comes a time in every person’s life when opportunity knocks and gives you the chance to increase your income and impact, and to take your life to a completely new level.

You’ve heard me speak highly of Joe. And for good reason: he’s the go-to authority when it comes to creating online courses.
Take Easy Course Creation, Joe’s flagship course:
In less than 3 years, it’s enrolled 17,000 students (and counting!) and generated more than 7-figures in online sales.
It’s no surprise, then, that the movers and shakers of the course creation industry took note and came running. Creating an online course is one thing, but building one that attracts that many students? There has to be a secret, right?
According to Joe, anyone can do what he’s achieved. And in his new online training, for the first-time ever, he’s revealing all his secrets and distilling his best practices into an easy-to-follow format so you, too, can work from anywhere, make your own hours and create more impact with the lessons you’re trying to teach.

Participation in 4 live Q&A calls

Here’s a link to see the full details: https://kb226.isrefer.com/go/salespageecc/carolbutler/
If you’ve ever wanted to turn your skills, knowledge or expertise into an online business but didn’t know where to start, or, you already have an online business, but you want to get more customers without being ‘salesy’, Joe will show you how:
Hurry, though: enrollment for Easy Course Creation closes on Monday, August 29th at 11:59 p.m Pacific Time.

P.S. Look, I don’t care whether you buy from my link or not (I make a teeny-weeny commission if you do), if you’re serious about building a profitable online business, you need this information.
I’ve been through Easy Course Creation myself and I can honestly say this is one of the most well-researched and thorough trainings you’ll ever take.
And if you don’t agree … Joe insists you ask for your money back. So what are you waiting for? Go check it out now. Don’t say I didn’t tell you :)
This guy couldn't get a job as a pizza delivery guy and then ended up building a profitable online course business and quit 9 to 5 forever!

In less than 2 years Joseph Michael built his flagship course Learn Scrivener Fast (which by the way I bought. Did all 4 books of mine using Scrivener). He enrolled 17,000 students and generated 7 figures in online sales (I want to do that!)
And today it's his 2 year "teachiversary" and to celebrate he's giving you these 3 training videos. So you can see if you might want to do this and consider his new course called "6-Figure Lunch Break ( even without an audience or list!)
So here's your ticket to see what it's about:
You might consider following this online course trend that hit 56.2 billion in 2015 and is expected to double. (Hey, that's why I overspent 10 months working on my course because I wasn't sure what to do first....and then I got his other course.)
Here's your ticket. Take a look and you may thank me later if you like what you see or just support my quest to deliver the same, high quality instruction and service to you and others.
Yes, I've taken the last few posts to do something great for you. I know you're smart and like me you have years of experience doing a number of things. Maybe not all of them have let you fulfill a passion. Typically our passions are meant to share and if we could ONLY make a living doing what we love.
Monday I gave a link on Facebook and here to get FREE Course Creation Tools. If you missed it here it is again
(https://learnscrivenerfast.leadpages.co/course-creation-bundle/). I've spent 10 months working on a very niche course and if I'd only looked at Joseph Michael's training and course before my great idea...I know I'd been faster and frankly more secure. I've bought from him twice and that says it all. I'm picky.
Listen to him here: https://kb226.isrefer.com/go/eccvideo/carolbutler/
He didn't have a list or an audience when he started out. Wow. Sound familiar
Because this opportunity like all great opportunities for FREE training don't come along often from a master. And again I know. I've got Katherine Gillis, Master Traditional Retoucher & Spotter sharing 23 years of applying dyes and we're honing it into a course I'll be launching soon. A lot of time has been saved because of Joseph.
Get this bundle here https://kb226.isrefer.com/go/coursecreationbundle/carolbutler/ because like Carol's Tipbits. It's a gimme and it's FREE. I bet you'll thank me later. By the way. Tomorrow he's giving 3 training videos away. That's right. So you have the opportunity to look at what might be true for you. If you've ever had an idea (and I have sooooooo many) where you thought you could share what you know with others, get paid and not know where in the mud to begin. Here's your chance. Stay tuned!
Whenever anyone asks me the best approach to building a profitable online business, my answer is always the same…
Create an online course.
With an ‘e-course’, you can reach more people and build more influence in less time that you ever thought possible.
(Not to mention make a very comfortable living.)
The problem, though, is most people don’t know where to start.
They’re overwhelmed with information, paralyzed by choice or worse, crippled with self-doubt.
Hiring a mentor or coach is one option, but with the average business coach charging $1,000 per hour, it’s not always the most affordable.
So, what can you do?
I thought you’d never ask :)
Do you know my buddy Joseph Michael?
If not, you should.
In less than 2 years, Joe’s flagship course, Learn Scrivener Fast, has enrolled 17,000+ students (!) and generated more than 7-figures in online sales.
And today, it’s his 2 year ‘teachiversary’ (see what I did there?)
To celebrate, he’s unpacking everything he’s learned in a new online training called 6-Figure Lunch Break: How One "Average Joe" Turned A 60-Minute Lunch Break Into A Profitable Six Figure Online Business (even without an audience or list):
The best part?
I got you a free ticket. You can access the free training for a limited time here:
In it, you’ll discover…
The one market trend that hit 56.2 billion in 2015 and is expected to double this year (and how you can tap into this wave before it passes)
I promise you—it will be worth it.
Carol King Butler
P.S. Even if you can't watch it right now, go ahead and sign up ... then schedule a few minutes today or tomorrow to watch it. Don’t let the busyness of the day keep you from missing out on what’s most important to you!
