From time to time, I like to tell you what's on my mind, what I've got going on, and where I'm headed. This is one of those times.

If you've been paying attention, you have probably noticed that I've withdrawn a bit.

I've stopped doing webinars, my emails have been less frequent, and I'm not posting as much as I had.

There is a reason for it. I've been busy. Really busy with clients and projects. And family, too.

Internet Marketing Gimmicks #37

If you're like me, you get hundreds of emails a day, along with countless tweets and Facebook updates, many of which originate from "internet marketers." Most of this stuff is just internet marketing gimmicks.

I got one today. It is pretty tame but nevertheless it's a marketing gimmick, designed to get you to act on something when you really wouldn't otherwise. Sometimes, they're disguised as "calls to action," like "Click the buy button now."

Except they have an additional hook or fear

We all know that it's simply not good enough to write quality content and curate content from authority sites. You have to get your content consumed!

Content circulation, aka content syndication or content promotion, is what needs to occur if you want people to actually read your blog posts, watch your videos, or download your presentations, music, or eBooks. It's really that simple.

The third pillar in your content marketing strategy is content circulation, or content syndication. No matter what you call it, you have to create original content, curate content, and then make sure that content gets circulated.

In other words, if you create content, you want people to see it. Content circulation is the key.

If the video below resonates at all with you, please leave a comment!

I have been on the "service provider" side of this more times than I can count. It is very uncomfortable, to say the least.

There are 3 basic ways to deal with it:

Hold firm: "These are my prices and services."
Compromise

I usually go with #2. Sometimes, however, I go with #3. I begin by offering my top option. If somebody balks at the price, I begin pulling things out
