Make a Difference with the Chino Rotary Club

Making a Difference with the Chino Rotary Club

This year our Rotary Theme is Making a Difference.

When I first got started in business about six years ago, I attended a Millionaire Mind Seminar in Phoenix with my sister and business partner Lacey. During these seminars they do a bunch of rah-rah stuff to help get you out of your comfort zone and one of the assignments they gave us was to write a song that embodied who we are.

I remember my song went something like this: “I want to make a difference. I want to make the world a better place. I want to make a difference…” And after I did my little performance to my small group including my sister I remember her saying something like, “Ahh, I get it now.” In that moment, I felt she understood me. So, for me, it’s fitting that this year’s theme is Making a Difference because it defines who I am and the impact I want to have on our community.

Installation of Zeb Welborn as Chino Rotary Club President for 2017/2018

As I was preparing for this year I invited a guest to every Rotary meeting I attended and with every guest and every member here, I asked the same four questions.

  • What do you like about the Chino Rotary Club?
  • What don’t you like about the Chino Rotary Club?
  • How can the Chino Rotary Club help you?
  • How can you help the Chino Rotary Club?

Why Become a Rotarian?

Today, I want to ask you one question – Why?

  • If you are a current Chino Rotary member tell me why you are a Rotarian in the comments below.
  • If you ever thought about becoming a Rotarian, tell me why you would consider becoming a Rotarian in the comments below.

As you’re thinking about it, I want to tell you why I joined the Chino Rotary Club.

There are multiple reasons I became a Rotarian. The biggest reason was being asked repeatedly by Dale Bright, owner of Dale Bright’s Auto to join. But, internally, I signed up because I knew I could better serve my community with others than I could alone.

I wanted to give back, but more importantly, I wanted to experience giving back in different ways to serve my community.

And, I wanted to be moved. I wanted to participate in Rotary moments that moved me, inspired me and let me know I was making a difference.

#1 Goal for 2017/2018 is to Increase Membership

In speaking with all of our members and prospective members, I created one goal for my Rotary Presidency in 2017 and that is to more than double our membership from 17 to at least 34 members.

To do this, I’ve asked our club to focus on a few things:

  1. bring a guest to every meeting
  2. attendance matters
  3. make our Wednesday meetings more friendly
  4. do community service
  5. connect more with each other

Continue the Chino Rotary Club Legacy

The Chino Rotary Club has a rich history in serving the Chino Valley area and I want to continue those efforts, but our club has declined in membership from close to 100 members at its peak to 17 today. Our lack of membership has limited our impact on our community and has put the Chino Rotary Club in danger of failing.

An increase in membership solves current problems facing our club and gives us the opportunity to make a difference in our community.

Entrepreneur Gary Vaynerchuk recently said, “Money doesn’t mean anything to me. I want legacy, influence, and impact.”

This statement embodies my personal philosophy on life and why I wanted to become the Chino Rotary President for 2017/2018.

I want to make a difference. I hope you do too.

Will you join me?

Super Simple Secrets to Business Blog Writing Success

My first website launched in 2010. I remember the feeling of excitement as my business could now be found on the world wide web by customers all over the world.

I imagined the phone ringing off the hook, more customers than I could handle and making my first million by the end of the year.

My sister and business partner, Lacey built The Tutoring Solution website. Fortunately for me she installed Google Analytics so we could track exactly how many visitors we had coming to our website.

The Tutoring Solution Business Blog Writing

At the end of the week, I saw my website had three visitors – likely my Mom, Dad and brother.

The harsh reality set in – this was going to take more work than I thought.

I heard blog writing could help get your website ranking in the search engines so I committed myself to writing a blog post every day for six months.

My website starting showing up in the search engines, my phone began ringing off the hook, I took on more customers than I could handle and while not yet a millionaire, my businesses have averaged 50% growth over the last seven years.

Since that first website, Lacey and I have set up, built and executed blogs for ourselves, for companies we represent and helped new business bloggers get started with theirs.

Blog Writing by the Numbers:

Blog writing has grown my business, but it’s also become a critical tool for businesses large and small.

A good metric to determine the importance of blogging in the global marketplace is to see where marketers are spending their time, efforts and money.

In surveys conducted with marketers by Social Media Examiner, The Content Marketing Institute, Gartner and Socialeemedia, they found:

  • 45% of marketers say blogging is their #1 most important content strategy
  • 70% of business to business (B2B) marketers plan to create more content in 2017 than 2016
  • 28% of marketers have reduced their advertising budget to fund more digital marketing
  • Marketers who prioritize blogging are 13 times more likely to realize a positive ROI

In terms of making purchasing decisions marketing companies Stratabeat and Lenati found that:

  • 80% of business decision makers prefer to get company information in a series of articles versus an advertisement
  • 67% of the typical B2B journey is now done digitally
  • 90% of B2B buyers say online content has a moderate to major effect on their purchasing decisions

Marketers and decision-makers both agree about the importance of online content in the sales cycle. To thrive in today’s environment, a digital marketing campaign is critical.

Learn why having a business blog is important, how to get it started, how to create content, and how to make money from it.

How Donald Trump Won the Presidency with Twitter

“The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.” – Oscar Wilde

Regardless of how you feel about the election results from last night, you just saw our political system go through a drastic shift.

Our President-Elect, Donald Trump, made controversial statement after controversial statement throughout the campaign and – every time – our political pundits said he was done. He would not recover.

But, he did recover.

Not only did he recover, but he continued to make more and more controversial statements and each time his influence grew.

His campaign is a testament to the new age of marketing. The power of social media.

Donald Trump’s strategy was to make sure eyes, ears and minds were on him and only him.

His strategy worked and it will work for your business.

Trump’s campaign relied on one simple premise:

“There is no such thing as bad publicity except your own obituary.” – Brendan Behan

If you’ve ever thought to yourself social media doesn’t work, it’s a waste of time, or it can’t help to grow my business, Trump just proved you wrong. Trump used social media to persuade our country.

In a traditional campaign, any number of Trump’s controversial remarks would have doomed his run for the presidency, yet he thrived.

With each tweet, Trump defied conventional thinking and the reason it worked is because his controversial statements dominated the headlines nearly every day of the campaign election cycle. Nearly every late night talk show host, news anchor, newspaper, magazine and media outlet mentioned Trump on a daily basis.

The free press Trump received far surpassed the mentions of Hillary Clinton throughout the entire election. Whether good, or bad, Trump was on the minds of the American people and we have social media to thank.

As the results were being read last night, many pointed to the fact that this election would “rewrite the history books.” Its ramifications will reverberate throughout the future of political campaigns.

In every debate, Facebook and Twitter were mentioned – they even had a selfie spot at my polling place.

Donald Trump Social Media Strategy

Those engaging in discussions on Facebook and Twitter permeated news feeds and those who proactively supported or endorsed either candidate influenced our election.

If you’re active on social media you’re an influencer. You have the ability to persuade others to your way of thinking in today’s connected age. If your business is active on social media, you have the ability to persuade your customers to choose you over another company.

And when they choose you, you have the ability to generate a “base” of followers who will overwhelmingly support you and your brand. So much so, that they’ll take to Twitter, to Facebook and to other social channels to tell everyone just how great you are.

Do you want to succeed in our new economy? Copy Donald Trump and use social media to grow your business.
