Marketing & Advertising Have Been Reduced To One Word...VIDEO Free Video Marketing Strategy


relationshipsI am always stressing the importance of relating to the human aspect and how it relates to business as well as the importance of relationships. Today I experienced, once again, why this is so important.

We are all in the same boat when it comes to doing a zillion things at the same time and rushing around in the hopes of getting to even half of our daily to-do list.  Not too long ago, I wrote an article called "Think you are in a Slump? Think again! What Really Matters in Life? that touched many hearts in the same way it came from mine.

Not unlike all of you, I juggle many balls at the same time. One in particular, is submitting my articles to the many available submission sites. However, because of time contraints, I have been somewhat lax in my submissions. So last night, I decided I needed to play a little catch-up and start submitting. Which site did I choose? The one that had a name associated with the "editor" title in the generic emails we receive when our articles are accepted. Many months ago, Dr. Jay Stockman, Editor in Chief of Aricle Niche Directory, sent me an email that said "Great articles". I was a little surprised and of course pleased that he appreciated what I wrote. That is all it took to create a connection – one email with a name attached and a personal message. So Article Niche Directory is the site I chose. I submitted a whole slew of them – I said I had been lax and I wasn't kidding!

Today, to my pleasant surprise, I received an email from Dr. Stockman notifying me that my article was chosen as the "editor's choice". Of all the articles I submitted, the one he chose was the one that is closest to my heart because it came directly from my heart. In this crazy world we live in, when something we do touches another person's heart, it might not bring us any money – but it sure does bring us a strong sense of personal accomplishment and for that, there is no price tag.

    I’m very happy for you.  Not everybody has the privilege to be noticed by a person like him.  It’s a fulfillment on your part because you’re able to please him.  You’ll get more next time for sure!

    I am not sure why I don't have a face? You know I am shy deep down inside, right? I agree. I love your writing and you've had a profound effect on my life. :-) Tear! lol

    Julie, congratulations and it is sometimes the little things that can make a big difference like having a real name associated with a site.
    I actually like that you write as you speak as it is easier to relate to.

  4. I think it's important to note that relationships and connections are important to you Julie which means you are, in  my opinon, making the most of life. 

  5. You make an important:  write from the heart.  Trust  your passions.  I will be doing that in my next blog post.  Congratualtions on your blog being named an "editor's choice."

  6. Thanks for sharing Julie. This is the perfect example of making a connection. Everyone loves to think they're important.

    Congratulations on being part of the article-niche-project! I’ll have to check that out.

    • But Sherryl, you ARE important :) Someone once told me that I write like I speak – not sure if that is good or bad LOL. Thanks for the compliments – they really do mean a lot. You know, this interaction is what I find most re-rewarding in all the things I do. Let me know what you think of The Article Niche Directory. I am going to start helping Dr. Jay promote it – I like their style.

  7. Congratulations Julie! That's excellent news! Right on top of the page is the editors's choice – your article!!
    Super! Do let us know what impact this will have on people contacting you, giving you writing assignments and anything positive that may happen as a result of this.

    • Thanks so much Catarina. I am not sure it is that big a deal but I sure did enjoy my day in the spotlight and most importantly – the content of the blog is about something/someone so dear to me.

    That's awesome Julie. You've certainly touched my heart with your articles, your feedback and just being a good friend. We've come a along way since Biznik, Bizintros, njretoday, and now AgentKnowHow and MVT.
    Sometimes, when you write on-line, you hope that your article(s) touch the right people i.e. consumers, but just once in a while it touches more than just someone looking to buy. . .you make that connection, a lifetime friend, someone who might or will refer you clients/customers.
    Jim Weichert always said that people buy people before they buy products and services. I believe that and I live it!

    • Aww – thanks Angie. This is definitely the power of and beauty of networking and I am so grateful that I have seen it first-hand. Jim Weichert is right on the mark – the modified version is: “People buy from people they know” – right?

      BTW – why don’t you have a face here? It really is a lovely, young, and beautiful face :)

  9. Thanks for sharing your experience.  You've not just inspired me, but suggested a place for me to submit articles.  You are so right that we just have to bucke down and accomplish one task at a time.  One solitary task could be a great "tipping point".

    • Hi Keyurl. I am so glad I was able to inspire you and refer to a great site for article submissions. If you do submit to Article Niche Directory – tell Dr. Jay I sent you over :).
