Super Power = Online Growth | $400 Million in Online Sales in 2020 | Unicorn Builder Hey, my name is John Rampton. I live to grow companies online. I have built (with an amazing team) over 4 unicorns over the past 10 years with over $18 billion in online revenue directly attributed to my teams. John was recently the "Top Online Influencer in the World" by Entrepreneur Magazine. Time Magazine recognized John as a motivations speaker that helps people find a "Sense of Meaning" in their lives. He currently advises and manages several companies about their growth strategies. John has a philosophy in his life and business: 1 in every 10 people you help will help you back. 1 in every 100 people you help will turn into a financial relationship. 1 in every 1000 people you help will turn into a multi-million dollar relationship over time. This means that you need to help 3 people a day and you'll be on your way to building a multi-million dollar relationship. When we talk about helping people, this means completely helping people without wanting anything in return. Helping brings joy. Helping has proved to be the most successful driver of business that I've ever seen.
Podcasting has become an increasingly popular medium for businesses to build their brand and connect with audiences. However, launching a successful podcast requires more than just recording and uploading episodes. Many podcasts fail to gain traction and reach their target audience, leaving business owners wondering what went wrong.
You want your team members to work in high gear no matter where their chairs are located. To make that happen, here are three workplace tools I recommend implementing and how to choose the right ones for your business.
No one enjoys having difficult conversations—especially with their boss. However, whether it’s about a problem with a co-worker, a mistake that’s been made or a disagreement on a project, difficult conversations are often necessary in the workplace and can help you and anyone else involved move forward and grow as a professional. But, that doesn’t make approaching your boss with a problem any easier.
Due to the monotony of everyday life and the frequent stress that comes with living in the modern world, many people often have trouble getting into a creative headspace or just thinking creatively in general. This comes as bad news for those in the business realm, as the ability to think creatively is essential to the problem solving and innovating necessary to succeed as an entrepreneur.
Certain business trends may be popular among the entrepreneurial crowd, but that doesn't mean they're all worth pursuing.
In the new year, consider these happiness-inducing leadership strategies to help change the way your organization feels about work.
Establishing goals for team collaboration and engagement requires a little more thought and planning than, say, setting a target for customer churn.
Social media isn’t the only place to find the latest trends. When taking a look at the business world as a whole over the last 12-month period, you’ll find a number of trends and initiatives that took hold of a large number of organizations. Whether it’s increased flexibility or organic lead capture, these trends grew popular for a reason—but will their popularity carry over into the new year?
Leaders need to invest the time, energy and resources necessary to build trust among the members of their team. That support can foster teams that produce results for brands time and time again.
Prospective employees aren’t just looking for the biggest salary and most generous benefits package.
While there are several ways for managers to perfect their skills, employee feedback reveals how their behaviors influence the team.
Releasing a mobile app is often an exciting next step in many entrepreneurs’ journeys after their websites are up and running successfully. However, in the excitement of building and launching their mobile app, it can be easy for an entrepreneur to forget one of the most fundamental aspects of creating this technology: protecting it. With cases of cybercrimes only predicted to rise in the coming years, not making cybersecurity a priority puts your app—and those who use it—at risk for data theft, lost money, fraud and much more.
When a young professional is looking to find a mentor in their industry, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Depending on where they are in their career journey, they may or may not already have access to a network of established professionals who have the desire and time to take on a mentor-mentee relationship.
Those hazy, lazy, crazy days of summer invariably alter the normal rhythm at work.
Summer always has a more leisurely rhythm that permeates personal and professional lives. Rather than fighting the slowdown, look to capitalize on it.
Letting go of traditional leadership ideas is often the most difficult hurdle to overcome, but it’s vital with hybrid teams.
As a leader, it’s natural to want to reward high-performing employees when they’re already doing so well and they’re likely having the biggest impact on the company’s bottom line. However, focus and support should also be given to average or low-performing employees to benefit not only the company, but also the employees as they continue on their career journeys.
Marketing is both an art and a science. It requires acute attention to detail, in-depth analysis, an understanding of mass psychology and a level of creative thinking that not many people possess.
As employees find professional reward in far more things than their paychecks, you have an opportunity to get creative.
While trends don’t always stick around, some of what’s occurring in the labor force show signs of permanently transforming the employer-employee relationship.
Ensuring efficient business operations is a key component of leadership.
By recognizing the signals that your business needs additional staff, you can help prevent or mitigate the loss of talent, quality and revenue.
Implementing time management techniques can help you catch your breath and make challenging days seem less impossible to deal with.
While your role brings with it prestige and the opportunity to make an impact, it’s not without its headaches.
Launching a new product on social media can be a great way to go to market, but that’s only if you design an effective social media campaign. From creating content to scheduling, building awareness of your new product on social media requires a lot of careful planning and consideration.
Get a handle on the minutes that make up your day and you’ll improve how you manage your time.
When your business starts to grow, it's an exciting indicator of success. However, it can also be an indicator that organizational changes need to take place. If your business has outgrown its current location, it's time to start considering moving into a new office space. There's a lot to think about before making such a significant change, though.
Holiday shopping can be a stressful time for many people. Customers are worried about items being in stock, finding the perfect gift and avoiding long lines when searching for help or checking out.
A company that works with its employees’ newfound values instead of against them may be able to retain its top talent.
Regardless of the current location of your team members, it’s still important that leaders establish some productivity routines for their employees.
No employee is immune to burnout—not even your "A" players—and especially not during trying times. As an employer, you may sometimes notice that the employees who are always on their game have been reaching a point of exhaustion. Some employees may even seem bored with their work and like they are craving something new.
Keeping up with the trends is a job in and of itself, let alone figuring out ways to use the trends in marketing.
The happiness of its employees can make all the difference in a company's success.
It’s important to have a few productivity strategies for your team to utilize. This will give them a chance to have more freedom, while also taking on more responsibility to still complete their projects on time.
Members of Young Entrepreneur Council discuss characteristics all top tech companies share and why.
It’s so important to build a brand strategy based on the specific needs of your target audience, and then craft that strategy to navigate the challenges in your niche.
Workplaces can often experience collective burnout, and to no surprise, this also includes leaders. In order to keep everyone productive, leaders must be able to implement policies that allow for successful work-life balance and workplace productivity.
Engaging with your target audience and loyal customers yields a hefty amount of consumer trust. The more you utilize the social media engagement tools available to your business, the better your business will do.
As it has with many other parts of running a business, technology has granted business leaders the tools that can make recruiting a much simpler process. Today’s tech can help gather and sort applications, offer communication tools to ensure recruiters have a safe and secure location to speak with their potential hires and many of them even provide contract services that can help speed up onboarding.
Make the decision to make fewer decisions.
There are several strategies leaders can utilize to improve their company culture. Some techniques are more complex than others. But, the majority of these strategies are actually very simple when leaders have a people-first mentality.
You need to make sure the company is in the right shape and that future buyers will respect your legacy.
It takes a lot of mental fortitude for an employee to approach their employer for a raise. There's no playbook for managers and business owners to know how to gauge whether an employee deserves a raise or not. The factors as to whether an employee deserves to earn more can be approached in several different ways. From the addition of value to the support they provide, each plays an integral part in determining whether a raise is warranted. That’s why we asked 10 entrepreneurs from Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) the following:
The next evolution of the calendar experience. Over the past 10 years, our lives have become more complex. Everyone is busy, and we carry our time-crunched schedules like badges of honor. People are moving faster than ever before — which means we’re not slowing down enough to determine whether the way we’re spending our time reflects our values.
