Alexander and Donald shared many wonderful case studies about how "big companies" systematize their processes and how it lead to their being considered models in their respective industries. Companies like McDonalds and how they train teenagers to "serve it up", how Debbie Fields started selling her famous cookies by marketing on streetcorners and making the recipes and then creating a duplicatable process to prepare them, that can be taught to just about anyone, how Martha Stewart is doing better than ever because she has can replicate the secrets to her success over and over again.
These were just a few of the examples they shared. Alexander talked about creating the right team and Joint venture partnerships, masterminds and more.
In the end they made the listeners an offer of a free half-hour strategy session to find out the next steps we need to take to systematize our success. And I wanted to offer it to you here. And share the link to the audio file.
Visit Systematize Your Success to listen to the free business audio (mp3) recording.
If you too would like to have a free half-hour strategy session with Alexander and Donald, sign up at http://www.successbuildingsystem.com/strategy.php. Tell them Heidi sent you!
Wishing you continued success as you build your businesses and learn more ways to leverage the tools provided by the Women's eCommerce Association.

Three Blogging Tips to get your “blog on”:
1. Tweet your blog posts (or articles). Every time you write a new article on your blog, go over to Twitter (you do twitter, don’t you?) and post the title of the article and a link to it at your home page. If you don’t Twitter yet, get started now. It’s microblogging so you only have a few words (140 characters to be exact) to post a tweet. Followers and visitors to your home page can read your updates and if they like what they see will follow you and tell others too.
2. If you want to increase your blog traffic you have to comment voraciously on related blogs and forums. Make sure your comments add value to the conversation (not just, “hey, nice post”), so that when readers visit those blogs they feel compelled to click on your link and “check you out.” This can increase the number of visits to your site and if those new-found visitors like what they see, they too become loyal readers. In fact, I found this tip while surfing a blog and then clicked on the link in the comment and found other great tips on blogging! And I even found a few *women bloggers whose comments I liked and have added them to this list!
3. Something I never thought of was to add a "tell-a-friend" link at the bottom of each page. Some people who visit blogs may not think to share their new findings with their own circles.
Note: Here’s a cool tool I found that can help you stay in touch: RSS responder is a new script that allows you to keep in touch and follow-up with your subscribers without the hassle of email: http://ebizwhiz-publishing.com/rssresponder.htm
Ps. If you are a woman blogger or know women bloggers we should be listing be sure to leave a comment and let us know. We are looking for TEAM bloggers, GREEN bloggers and Women Bloggers to Watch for Fall 2008!
