What Does a Billion Dollars Look Like?

Start ups are HOT - I get it. This trendy topic is filling the social media with articles of how this CEO made millions and how that company collected a hundred million in investments. Headers of success stories are everywhere.

I read them because I am curious of what is being made and developed, what products are making it big, and what kind of people are behind the success. Everyone starts somewhere and many of the starting entrepreneurs are not millionaires. They are hundred-aires or thousand-aires at best. But no matter our current situations, we all have something in common: We all imagine having a great fortune some day - for some, that fortune is monetary.

So, here is my question to you: Have you ever visualized what a billion dollars or euros might look like? I haven't, and to be honest, after seeing this video, I was blown away. It was surreal to look at what a billion dollars might look like!!

Have you seen anything like this before? Have you thought what a billion dollars might look like? Share thy thoughts below!!

How did it happen?

How a $6,000 video doubled this companies size!

I saw a post about a woman who started her business back in March. Her business had been modest but she was generally happy with the growth. She was adamant about one thing, though. She wanted to include a video in her marketing strategy since she felt like it was the best way to describe what her company, HelloFlo, does. After the video was launched, something unexpected happened. Bloom's marketing video went viral and created such a demand that she, literally, DOUBLED THE SIZE of her company.

Being an Entrepreneur - Radio interview with Joonas Villanen












After doing a few interviews with entrepreneurs around Finland, I was asked about my own experiences. Tables were turned. The interview was organized by a local radio station called Radio Uusjussi.

So how did it go?

Well, to begin.... I can now understand how the interviewee feels in the hot seat! Nerves were on edge and my mind and tongue didn't always work together, but all in all... I think it was pretty successful! What do you think?

What did they ask?

First question: Why should people change from a traditional media to new, more digital, media like video production.

Shortly - because it's trendy. It's a better, more effective channel to portray your message. Video is more memorable, personal, and emotional. And, probably the biggest reason of all and with the advancements in technology, it is available.

So that I don't spoil the goods too much, I'll just add that brands and the importance of branding was talked about as well as what it takes to make your business stand out from the rest and how to get started.

Please, share you own experiences below. We would also love to hear what you have to say about the interview's topics. Was there anything worth taking away?

Happy watching!

Writing great content that matters in 2013

10 SEO Copywriting tips

Writing effective copy is one of the hardest things in marketing and sales. We came across this great infographic to show you what matters in copywriting in 2013. The content that has been clearly written having only SEO in mind, often appears dull and generic..  In short, it looks like it was written for robots, and not for people.

It is always better to write like you're talking to a person. It is people buying your products and services after all. So, think about your customers, and what they might want to know about you and then tell them what you can do for them using the human approach. This way, we bet you will have more succes than cramming your text full of keyowrords.

Yours truly,
