4 Steps to Use Your Blog to Activate the Internet Law of Attraction

I personally believe there is no richer place to activate the Law of Attraction than the Internet, hands down. I mean, where else can you go and have real live people searching for what you have 24/7/365? I’ve been online since ’96, and my friends and family call me their human Google. I admit it, I am an information junkie.

If it can be found online, I will find it. I’ve got lots of strategies and tools I use to locate niche markets and information no one else knows or uses.

The trick to using this in your favor is to get into the mind of your ideal client. Figure out what painful situation she’s in, or what ambition she has and the words she would use to describe it if she were looking for a solution and you are on your way to learning how to activate the Internet Law of Attraction.

Here are 4 tips to help you get into the right frame of mind. *Disclaimer: they aren’t rocket science, but I’ve used these exact steps to find what I wanted for the past 19 years online – so in a way it’s really reverse engineering and giving you a peek into the mind of a true Internet Empowered Consumer:

  1. Brainstorm the main words or phrases that your ideal customer or client might use to find your service or product.
  2. Plug the words into Google and see what results show up on the first page. Notice the page titles and also notice if there are ads using your words displaying next to the results.
  3. Keep narrowing and refining your search terms using what you find that catches your eye until you start finding services similar to yours (of course, no one else has YOUR unique DNA – Distinct NicheAdvantage ;-)) and that are showing up on the first page of Google. ( I rarely look past the first two pages anymore and I suspect not many others do either – they just start over with more or different words)
  4. Make note of the keywords you find and then figure out how to use them somewhere in your blog post title and in the body of your posts without sounding too weird. If you can , also use them as your blog sidebar categories & topics. I added my name to the main title of this blog and landed on the first page of results in Google almost overnight (and I share a name with someone who is a writer and/or musician so that is quite a feat!)

If you’d like to know more about what I’m calling the Internet Law of Attraction, let me know. I’ll be writing more about it in future posts.

Access the Wisdom of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers

What is Wisdom?

From Wikipedia:

“A basic philosophical definition of wisdom is to make the best use of knowledge. The opposite of wisdom is folly.

The ancient Greeks considered wisdom to be an important virtue, personified as the goddesses Metis and Athena. To Socrates and Plato, philosophy was literally the love of Wisdom (philo-sophia). Aristotle, in his Metaphysics, defined wisdom as the understanding of causes, i.e. knowing why things are a certain way, which is deeper than merely knowing that things are a certain way.

In the Inuit tradition, developing wisdom was the aim of teaching. An Inuit Elder said that a person became wise when they could see what needed to be done and do it successfully without being told what to do.”

The 13 Grandmothers have come together in service to global healing at this critical moment in our evolution. Each of them represents prayer lineages from indigenous peoples around the world – carrying traditions from the Mayan people, Inuit, Amazon rainforest, Nepalese and others.

The members of the 13 Indigenous Grandmothers will be offering guidance and wisdom for those who want to enter the mystery together, deepen their spiritual connection and, in doing so, help light our way forward. Collectively, they have spent more than 1,000 years learning the wisdom of their peoples and becoming some of the most respected Native elders in the world.

And now they are called to share with us what they know.

They are doing this through an online course called The Wisdom of the Grandmothers, and it’s being led by the International Council of 13 Indigenous Grandmothers themselves.

This is a rare opportunity to be part of this sacred circle and learn from these wise elders.

You can learn all of the details and sign up here:  The Wisdom of the Grandmothers

How to Use Google+ to Grow Followers and Influence

Google has released a brand new social network called Google+ (or Google Plus). And it’s gotten 10 MILLION users in 2 weeks.

While the network is still in “invite only” status, I have influenced my good friend – early Facebook power user and online thought leader Scott Bradley –  to share his thinking on how he’s using and will be using Google Plus to grow his business and influence.

Scott will share real business building strategies and tips for entrepreneurs, small business owners and publishers.

Listen to internet radio with Michelle Price on Blog Talk Radio

Note: Since this call, there are some more interesting takes on how influence will be measured on Google+

Online Thought Leadership: Can Twitter Put You in a Trance?

Do people who know how NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) or hypnosis works have an unfair advantage on Twitter & Facebook, among other social networks?

I think they DO.  (Ummm…I KNOW they do. Some of my best friends are master NLP and persuasion artists and they have LOTS of Twitter followers who do what-ever-they-tell-them-to-do ;-).

If there was anyone who would know for sure, it’s Richard Bandler.

You know, THAT Richard Bandler. The one considered the “Grandfather” of NLP. And a REALLY great hypnotist.

Richard Bandler's Guide to Trance-FormationsI was talking with a colleague and she happened to mention his new book, Richard Bandler’s Guide to Trance-Formation (she’s his publicist). I mentioned how fascinated I’ve always been with NLP and the ability to understand someone’s mental map and how they think. And how cool it would be to actually meet Richard Bandler.

What I told her I didn’t have was a simple explanation for what NLP actually is, and how it works.

I’ve read a lot of books that went into laborious details about it, gave all these long drawn out explanations on all of the terms, complete with illustrations of eyes looking up, looking down, looking left and down, looking right and up (reminding me of that rhyme we used to say in elementary school “Look UP, Look DOWN, Look at my THUMB, Gee You’re DUMB…LOL!).  I think they called them “accessing cues”…

All it did was make me dizzy and not want to think about it. So many unread pages….

So she sent me an email one day not long after and asked if I would be interested in interviewing him.  (umm..YES!!)

I got a copy of the book, and I must say that in the first 3 short chapters, I actually GOT what NLP is. Forever.

If you’re interested, it’s how we represent the world in our own mind – the map or model we create to make sense of and navigate around the world AND the distinct way we each process our experiences.

Does understanding how you process experience give someone an unfair advantage on Twitter when they want to persuade you to “click here” to “see”, or “listen” to or “download and read”?

Does knowing how to use certain words that are more hypnotic and trance-inducing than others make a difference in whether you actually take any action at all?

Good questions. Listen to my interview on The Business of Online Thought Leadership Radio with Richard Bandler and hear what he has to say about social media, hypnosis, trance and NLP.

Online Thought Leadership…Making Sense of the Emotional Web

I discovered TWO more online thought leaders today, both women. Rhonda “Shelley” Ellis and The Technology Goddess or TTG (and funny enough, that is the name that stuck for her for me). Shelley is the leading thinker on how to cash in with Google Adwords using “content targeting” (which the boyz usually run screaming away from) and TTG is just the coolest female I’ve seen online yet – she’s got the latest thinking on “content placement” and it’s NOT the usual suspects – ie article distribution, it goes MUCH MUCH deeper. She’s teamed up with one really smart dude too. Her site is where I found this video and just had to share it on A Third Mind so you can see the latest thinking of where the web is going.

“Jonathan Harris wants to make sense of the emotional world of the Web. With deep compassion for the human condition, his projects troll the Internet to find out what we’re all feeling and looking for.” The site mentioned in this video is We Feel Fine

Enjoy this TED Talk, it’s fascinating! And I’ll share more about these cool women later…(I’m going to be inviting them for an interview on The Business of Online Thought Leadership in 2009.)

Connectivity is the New Currency(tm)…The Business of Online Thought Leadership

For some reason, I’ve always been fascinated with the topic of thought leadership. Maybe because I like to think a lot ;-).  

In fact, in 2005 I was a partner in a start-up consulting firm with 5 other dynamic women – we named our company 9th Element Group, (the ninth element is Flourine, it’s the most powerful element in the known universe and has been tested as rocket fuel…literally).  and we decided our niche was going to be The Business of Thought Leadership.  We would position, package and propel thought leaders into their marketplace! 

Part of the business of thought leadership is that you publish thought-provoking information. And we knew we’d need to write a book to be taken seriously. Luckily, one of the partners was an award-winning author, Jan Phillips. Jan wrote the book over the summer of 2005 (literally).  The Art of Original Thinking: The Making of a Thought Leader was published in 2006 and won awards.

Unfortunately, the company ran out of funding before we could really get traction so we all went off to other things.   

My intrique with the topic has remained, and in particular, I’m finding that there are a lot of women who demonstrate thought leadership with blogging, podcasting, social networking, social media and other areas – PR, business, technology…but aren’t necessarily recognized for their leading-edge thinking.

So I’m starting an internet talk radio show “The Business of Online Thought Leadership” and it’s going to profile many of the brave new entrepreneurs leading the field who you may not necessarily know but probably should.  

This week starts with my good friend Rob Schultz of www.AudaciousAudio.com and the reason I started with him is that he’s done some really cool innovative things with online media, like creating flash movies for big name coaches, and created a Larry King-style split screen interview using Skype and a web-cam (who knew? Traditional media is probably about to lose their MIND because of innovations like this ;-)…they can’t compete!)

Why Rob first? Well, when we reconnected recently, he happens to have just created the Online Radio Challenge – a 50 day program to creating your online radio show using Blog Talk Radio (how about that for timing?? The Universe is always at work, right?)

You can watch the split-screen program below:

You can listen to our first show here: The Business of Online Thought Leadership

And, I’ll be on the air every Wednesday at http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/onlinethoughtleadership at high noon to inspire and empower you to build your online presence using social media and social networking, build your platform and get up close and personal with some of today’s most innovative thought leaders in social media.

Hope you can join me!
