Introduction

Imagine meeting a new potential business partner. In the good old days, after talking for a while, you exchanged business cards. Quaint, wasn’t it?

 

And on that card, you expected to see their name, position, company name, phone number and fax. Oh, yes, you also expected to see their web site address.

 

If you were serious about doing business with them, you would check out their site and then see if Google searches turned up anything.

 

But what if they said they didn’t have a web site?

 

Chances are the response was a quick “cya”.

 

Today, you would be hard pressed to find someone without a web site.

 

And why exchange business cards when all you have to do now Is “Bump”?

 

00002.jpg

With the dramatic growth in mobile devices, the old web site is about to be replaced by ‘Podsites’. These are mobile applications which communicate with your prospects and
customers in real time, in ways THEY want to be

00003.jpg

communicated in. Some people like to read. Others learn better by listening. And most love watching video.

Of course, most of us use all three modalities, reading, listening, and watching. And often, the activities we are doing influence which modality we prefer. It’s not a good idea to watch a product video while driving... But many people will listen to hours of audio as they commute to and from work; drive the kids to their sports activities; walk the dog; clean the house.

And chances are they will do the majority of these activities on their Smartphone, iPad or iPod. Unfortunately, your old web site won’t cut it on these devices. In fact, you will frustrate your customers, turn off your new business partners and alienate your prospects is you try to force them to interact with you through old static hard-to-read-on-smartphone web pages.

An Axiom of Success

 

Question: “Where is the best place to build a restaurant?” Answer: “Where the hungry people are.”

With over 7 Billion cell phones on a planet of 6 Billion people, the chances are your clients are on a cell phone. The major trend right now is towards Smartphones. And the 800 pound gorilla in Smartphones today is Apple with the iPhone.

We’ll be keeping a sharp eye on Google and their Android OS, but for now the action is all in iTunes.

Apple has made downloading and using Apps as simple and easy as possible. Once you go to the App Store, you select an App and click “Install”. After it is loaded on your iPhone (or iPod or iPad), you tap on the icon and it starts up.

00004.jpgThere are Apps for cooking, travel, business, games, music, sports, health, and almost anything you can think of...

 

00005.jpgSince you have to start somewhere, let’s start where you have the best chance of success.

 

00006.jpg

And momentum is firmly on Apple’s side, according to recent information from Morgan Stanley. Your prospects and customers are voting for Apple with their time and dollars.

00007.jpg

Mobile is ramping up faster than the Desktop Internet did and will be much bigger than most analysts think.

00008.jpgThere are five major converging trends:

1) 3G and 4G
2) Social Networking
3) Video
4) VOIP – Skype anyone? Google Talk?
5) Impressive Smartphone functionality

And a sixth consideration is the impact from the Emerging Markets. There is huge potential there for mobile Internet growth due to low penetration now for broadband Internet connections, but there is already many mobile value added services in use throughout Africa, Asia and South America.

More users will connect to the Internet through mobile devices than desktop PC’s within 3 years. Google announced in 2010 that all their new program initiatives will be developed for Mobile Internet users first and laptops second.

00009.jpg

Recently, Vice President of Google Global Ad Operations, John Herlihy, predicted that in three years, desktop computers will be completely irrelevant.
In today’s fast paced world, text and pictures no longer cut it. Audio doesn’t make the grade, and truthfully, neither does Video.

Today’s consumer wants all three and they want it now. Along with interactivity... Delivered to them automatically. Conveniently.

 

00010.jpgThey want it where they are, when they want it and how they want it.

All this means: if they are on their iPhone and have to look at a non-mobile optimized web site - you know those sites - You have to flip your fingers and expand the page so you can see the text, then slide back and forth trying to read it.

Well, they won’t be staying long.

 

But if you give consumers what they want when they want it, a whole new world of opportunity opens up for your business. We call it the “Un-Web Business Model”

The Un-Web Business Model

Apple changed the way consumers shop.

With over 8.5 billion songs downloaded via iTunes, and over 3 billion Apps downloaded thru the App Store, Apple has become the world’s largest Music Store and Software seller. They recently added the iBookstore. Watch for them to be the world’s largest bookstore very soon.

And what are these consumers used to doing?

 

They spend an average of 111 minutes on iTunes every time they sign in.

 

00011.jpgThey are used to hearing something they like and spending 99 cents to get it.

 

00012.jpgThey are used to seeing an App they like, and spending 99 cents to $4.99 to download it.

 

00013.jpgWith the iPad, we are seeing higher prices as developers add more value and functionality.

 

00014.jpg

And now you can buy ebooks.

00015.jpg

When they buy, however, they never give their name, address, credit card information. It is a one click buy. Apple, a trusted vendor, already has all their credit card information. So no long drawn out checkout process.

Apple is the World’s Number One Affiliate
When you plug into the Apple ecommerce system, you have access to 200 million buyers. You have the number one Affiliate in the world working around the clock for you, and they don’t ask for the usual 50% either!

You don’t worry about whether the check will come, or if it does, will it bounce? You don’t handle refunds. You don’t handle most customer support issues.

Every Christmas, millions of new iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch owners head straight to the App Store, the iTunes store and the iBookstore looking for ways to spend their money. And that bump continues throughout the year as Apple regularly re-launches each product with new and updated features.

As this growth continues, you are riding that wave to success.

Your audio and video podcasts dominate the iTunes podcast rankings. Your premium audios sell like hot cakes in the iTunes Music Store, where already over 8.5 Billion downloads have occurred. Your eBooks are sold via the iBookstore. Your Pod-site distributes all your information directly to their iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Other problem-specific Apps (LeadApps™) create another income stream as well as new sources of customers for you.

The combined impact of all this activity is positioning yourself as an expert in your field.

Mobile Web Versus Pod-Sites

Once you look at your web site on an iPhone or iPod, you will immediate see a problem that will shortcircuit your success. Chances are your web site doesn’t fit. The text is way too small. If you increase the size of the font, you end up sliding back and forth as you try to read the lines of text.

If your web site is based on the popular Wordpress blogging platform, you can upload a mobile theme and plugins so that your web site is readable on an iPhone. You will lose the design of your site, but at least it won’t be unreadable.

The other problem you will have is people finding your site. Mobile search is popular but mostly for “Local Search”, and bookmarking sites on an iPhone can be an adventure for novice iPhones users (that would be the majority, right now).

Here are your options:

1) Your prospect has to remember to start their iPhone browser, type in your URL and see a web site that doesn’t fit.
2) Your prospect isn’t even sure which icon is the browser... Or
3) Your prospect taps on the icon of your Pod-Site sitting on their screen and goes directly to your information.

Hmmm... Let’s see. Tap, Tap, Type, Tap.... hmmm, spelt it wrong... ReTap, Type,etc. Or...

 

One tap and they have all your information at their fingertips. Plus they can read, watch or listen, choices which they probably wouldn’t have at your web site.

 

00016.jpgSo what exactly is a “Pod-Site”?

 

00017.jpg

Business Pod-Sites

Pod-Sites are custom-designed iPhone Applications or Apps (and one day, Android, Blackberry and Window Phone Apps) which can be downloaded for free or for a small fee from Apple’s App Store.

 

Over 3 BILLION downloads of iPhone Apps have taken place since Apple opened its App Store. The growth is phenomenal and it’s just starting.

 

Successful Pod-Sites are fresh, interesting and engaging.

 

They combine your Blog posts, Twitter, Audio and video podcasts to keep a never-ending stream of intriguing content on your prospects and customers’ iPhone, iPod and iPad.

 

And if you have a sale or special event, you can easily advertise it on your Pod-Site.

 

So let’s break down the different sections of your Pod-Site:

Blog Posts
The most under-rated aspect of Blogging is the RSS feed that comes
automatically with your blogs. Most people love the ease and simplicity of
posting articles to their blog. The power of Blogging however comes from the
automatic distribution system that your RSS feed creates.

00018.jpgThe RSS feed makes it possible for people to see if you have posted a new

 

article and read it without ever going to your blog.

 

Seth Godin recently posted on his blog that with a good RSS Reader anyone can follow 200 blogs in less than an hour. If Knowledge is Power, then RSS Feeds are the key to quickly gaining Knowledge.

 

Just like they are a key to your Pod-Site.

 

Imagine posting on your blog and it appears automatically on your prospects’ iPhone via your App.

Twitter
With over 100 million active users, Twitter, a Micro-Blogging site, has a created a niche for people who want to be kept up-to-date without spending hours getting into all the details. And yes, it comes with an RSS Feed, too.

Audio Podcast
A few years ago, the Internet was a glorified newspaper. It had text and pictures, just like your local paper. It forced people to learn in ways that were not necessarily the way they preferred. Many people are auditory learners.

With faster processors, broadband Internet and larger hard drives all that changed.

 

00019.jpg00020.jpgVideo Podcasts

 

With the dominance of YouTube, video is even bigger that audio online now.

And recently trends suggest that 65% of mobile data flowing thru your iPhone
will be video within three years. So if you have avoided adding video to your
marketing and communication channels, you continue at your own risk.

00021.jpgYou will be surprised at how easy video is. Flipcams and Sony’s Bloggie make it easy to transfer videos to your computer where Apple’s iMovie almost makes editing movies something you look forward to.

Facebook
With over 500 million users, Facebook is challenging Google for dominance. The latest survey by Hitwise shows Facebook inching ahead of Google.

And if that curve continues on its trajectory, which it may well do for a while (Facebook’s market share is 185% up over the same week in 2009, for example,)

00022.jpg

Facebook will become number one by a huge margin, versus the tiddly little 0.04% separation it currently has above Google's 7.03% share of average weekly market share.

00023.jpg

Facebook interactivity is built into Pod-Sites so your followers can interact and virally promote your content to their friends. Facebook's iPhone app currently has 57.3 million "monthly active users," meaning the number of people who have used the app in the last month, and it is growing dramatically each month.

Advertising on Your Pod-Site

Got a new book launch coming soon? Speaking at the

 

UN next month? Hosting a special MasterMind session?

You can advertise anything you want on your Pod-Site
using iAd, Apple’s newly launched mobile advertising
platform or AdMob, one of the largest mobile
advertising platforms, recently purchased for $750
million by Google.

00024.jpg00025.jpgThe ads are placed either at the top or bottom of the screen.

 

Here is an example:

 

00026.jpg

Other Types of Pod-Sites

Aside from the information sharing Pod-Site described above, other exciting variations can be easily created.

 

00027.jpg00028.jpg00029.jpg00030.jpg00031.jpg00032.jpg

LeadApps™

LeadApps™ are iPhone/iPad Apps designed to generated targeted leads for your business.

 

Spam-Free Messaging/Push Notifications

Have a special event? A Sale? Launching a new product? Tell all users that have your app installed. Never worry about Spam filters blocking your messages. Even if your app is not running, they will receive a pop-up with your notification message instantly. It is a great way to keep your users informed with the latest News or Announcements.

InApp Purchase
This is not about selling your app. This is selling part of your app, other apps, or other products like audios and ebooks. You can choose to distribute your app for free, but make some content available only to users that purchased it. Add an inApp Purchase link on any section. To see the content of that section, users will need to complete a transaction first. You set the price. Apple or you collect the money.

InApp Email
Every page can be sent to other people by Email. Your application will not close. An InApp Email window will slide from bottom. The page content will be taken as a snapshot in PNG format and attached to an email message. User will choose one or several contacts from his address book and send the message. You can also pre-define message subject and body.

InApp SMS
Add a Send SMS button to your app. Predefine your SMS message. Users will be able to send it to one or several recipients from their address book.

Interactive Google Maps
Add a google maps links. Copy paste and address and type some anchor text. This link will bring up an interactive Google Maps with specified address pin-pointed.

You can zoom in and out, switch to Map or Satellite view and see your current GPS location. There will also be a Get Directions button available. This will give your users the ability to get directions from their current location to the address you specified.

Share Page on Facebook
After Facebook login, users can share a page content with their friends on Facebook or publish it in their Facebook Live Feeds.

Dominate Your Market

With 300,000 Apps crowding the App Store, it can be difficult sometimes to be found. With the high production costs of Apps, many businesses opt for only one App. BIG mistake.

The ultimate App strategy is to build one ‘Portal’ App, which has all your products, services and information. Then ‘surround’ it with a number of LeadApps™, which drive traffic and customers to your main App and products.

00033.jpg

Pretty soon, you have what the World’s Top Perceptual Engineer, Stephan Stavrakis, calls “The Only” position in your market. In other words, when you achieve “The Only” position, your competition is irrelevant.

But it is not enough for the LeadApps™ to have dominance in search. They have to excel at their function.

 

And their function is to position you as an Expert. Your information will solve your customer’s specific problem. One LeadApp™ – one problem.

 

The structure of LeadApps™ is very simple:

• Problem
• Step One to solve it
• Step Two to solve it
• Step Three to solve it
• Upsell

Each time you solve an important problem for your customers, you strengthen yourposition as an Expert in your Market. And you create greater demand for your other products, i.e. more LeadApps™, Audios, eBooks, Podcasts, courses and seminars.

Targeting Keywords

The beauty of LeadApps™ lie in their ability to focus on extremely targeted keywords.

iTunes and Apple give you a very limited number of keywords and tags to use. These keywords are words and phrases that your customers may use to search for your content in iTunes. Now the iTunes search engine while better than it was four years ago, is still no “Google”.

So imagine the number of searches you won’t show up in, or you will rank low in, because you didn’t have that keyword or tag.

 

By following the LeadApp™ traffic generation strategy you cover all the main keywords in your market. And then some.

 

Furthermore each LeadApp™ upsells your customer to another LeadApp™. Who is most likely to buy from you a second time? Your customer. Not your prospect.

 

Let’s take an example using Tea as your main keyword. Here are some potential Keywords: LeadApps Problem #1: How to make the perfect cup of Green Tea.

 

Solution:
Step One:
Purchase the highest quality tea that you can afford.

 

Step Two: Pour boiling water over the green tea nice and slowly.

 

Step Three: Remove the green tea from the boiling water after

 

exactly one minute.

 

00034.jpgNow, how do you know which Green Tea to buy? Should the water be tap water or filtered? Why one minute?

All these questions and more can be expanded on in the Steps. And if you are in the Tea business, I am curious which Tea you would recommend they buy? Where can they get it? Naturally, your LeadApp™ would answer these questions in ways that increase your Tea sales. Repeat for each tea keyword.

LeadApps Problem #2: Fixing relationship problems

 

Solution:
Step One:
Listen For As Long As You Can

 

Step Two: Attacks Are Never Welcome

 

Step Three: Be Patient And Thoughtful

 

00035.jpgEach step is expanded upon. And you share such great information that

 

your customer realizes that you have the solutions to all their relationship problems.

 

00036.jpgWith a little creative thinking, you can easily create ten or twenty LeadApps™, and dominate your market. Each of your LeadApps™ would have a section highlighting your other products.

iPad Apps for Authors

iPad is the fastest selling mobile device in history. Over one million sold in 28 days.

iPad unit sales will jump to 54.7 million in 2011, and eat up about 35 percent of PC sales. In 2012, that number will grow to 79.2 million and 33 percent of sales.

Already five of the top six book publishers reported that more ebooks have been sold via iPad’s iBookstore than through Amazon and the other online bookstore.

Disney just announced their one millionth iPad App download.

 

Once your ebook is selling in Apple’s iBookstore, use Apple’s iPad App Store to promote it.

 

00037.jpg00038.jpg

The Book
When the iPad Author’s App starts, the
first thing your customer sees is the
eBook cover.

00039.jpg

Then your customer reads the Table of Contents and Chapter One.

00040.jpg00041.jpg

When they finished reading Chapter One, your
customer can buy the rest of your book with
one click from the Apple iBookstore.

The price button changes to the “install”

 

button when it is tapped by your customer.

 

00042.jpg00043.jpgTell a Friend

Word of mouth is the most powerful form of advertising and your iPad Author’s App makes it easy for your followers to let their friends know how much they love your writing.

Plus Facebook promotion.

 

00044.jpg00045.jpg00046.jpg00047.jpg

Video
Nothing cements your
relationship with your
audience like video.

You can include a short 3-5 minute video
sharing your inspiration for your book
and letting your audience know what to
expect from their iPad App.

There is nothing to add credibility with

 

your audience like a short video.

 

00048.jpgAuthor Bio Let your audience know more about you and your work on your own App Author Bio page.

 

Build your credibility.

A bio is used by authors, artists, and others to give a brief overview of their achievements, work history and to highlight their abilities.

An effective bio is typically written in third person, even if the person the bio is about does the writing.

A bio can be used for publicity or even a portfolio. You can easily create an impressive professional bio of your own.

00049.jpg00050.jpg

Events
You can let your audience know when you are speaking, hosting teleseminars, online classes or holding public events

00051.jpg

Exploring the Un-Web

So far we have focused on iPhone and iPad Apps, but there is much more to the Un-web that Apps.

Over 9 Billion songs have been downloads from Apple’s iTune store. In 2010, Apple launched the iBookstore. Within months, five of the six largest book publishers announced that more eBooks were sold via the iBookstore than any other store.

iTunes Store
Most people think of iTunes as a music store, but rarely realize that Spoken Word audio is included, which means that you can sell your educational/informative audios in iTunes. And it is a strategy that some heavyweights use to keep their brand at the forefront of the audience’s mind...

00052.jpgTo discover more about selling your audio content on iTunes, read www.iTunesExposed.com.

 

iBookstore

 

After dominating the audio market, Apple has set its sights on the book market.

 

Within months of launching major book publishers announced the popularity of the iPad and its iBookstore eclipsed the sales of all major ebook channels, which would include Amazon.

 

As the iPad increases in popularity, watch as its dominance of the ebook market increases.

 

00037.jpg

Podcasting
While not a profit center, free audio and video podcasts drive massive traffic to your other Un-Web properties by creating stronger relationships with your audience. Any Internet Marketer will tell you the importance of “Building Your List”. Just as important on the Un-Web is building strong relationships with your prospects and customers.

Zero to 7895 downloads in three months

 

00053.jpgAnd after one year: 115,307 downloads and 24,473 subscribers.

 

00054.jpgWizzard Media received an average of 2.75 million requests for podcast episodes per day in 2007, a nearly 300% increase over the daily average in 2006.

Learn more about setting up your traffic generating podcast at www.PodcastingUNleashed.com. Dominate the Un-web by creating hour long audios on your topics to sell in the iTunes Music Store in the Spoken Word Category, and eBooks to sell in the iBookstore. Each eBook, audio or App promotes other ones.
