The Power of Google Alerts and Authentic Expertise for Business Success

Every morning, I get these notifications from Google alerts about my name and the companies I’m involved with.

Google alerts

Now, some might find this a bit strange, but let me break down why I find these Google alerts really important:

Expressing Gratitude and Celebrating Success

I’m not just checking these alerts for the fun of it. I’m actually on a mission to spread some good vibes. You know, when I see stuff about my clients, partners, and team members doing awesome things, I make it a point to give them a virtual high-five. It’s not just about saying, “Hey, great job!” It’s about showing off their cool skills and celebrating their successes for the world to see.

And you know what’s cool about this? It’s like hitting the gratitude button in your brain. Feeling thankful is a superpower—it’s like a positive energy boost. Seeing all these achievements makes me realize that I’m surrounded by a bunch of rock stars who are all on my side. It’s like a team of champions working together to kick some digital marketing butt.

So, it’s not just about checking off alerts; it’s about soaking up that gratitude goodness. It’s like a reminder that we’re all in this together, pushing each other to be awesome. And let me tell you, being grateful isn’t just a nice thing to do—it’s like rocket fuel for your positivity and success mindset. It’s the secret sauce that keeps me motivated and connected.

Data-Driven Content Direction

These alerts they’re like my secret weapon for staying in the loop. I mean, in this wild world of the internet, things change faster than you can say “digital revolution.” And keeping up with the ebb and flow of what’s being shared, liked, and talked about is like having my finger on the pulse of the digital cosmos.

Now, here’s the kicker—I’m no psychic. I might think I have these brilliant ideas that are going to rock the digital landscape, but guess what? The reality check is often a bit humbling. My gut feeling isn’t always spot on. That’s where the magic of data comes in. Those alerts? They’re like a treasure chest of data-driven insights that tell me what’s actually clicking with people out there.

Do you know what’s cool about data? It’s like the truth serum of the internet. It doesn’t care about my grand ideas or what I think is awesome. It just lays out the facts plain and simple. So, when I peek into those alerts and see what’s getting the thumbs up, it’s like a reality check that keeps me grounded. It’s like a roadmap showing me the way that people are actually moving.

Now, let’s dive into the nitty-gritty. Remember that “Dollar a Day Strategy” that you might have heard of? Yeah, that’s my digital calling card, my claim to fame. But not everything I touch turns into gold. Take the “Topic Wheel” concept, for instance. I gave it my all, but it didn’t quite set the digital world ablaze like I hoped it would. And you know what? That’s just how the digital cookie crumbles sometimes.

And this is where those alerts earn their keep. They’re like a trusty compass, showing me which paths are paved with gold and which might need a bit of rerouting. I’ve learned to embrace the lessons from both hits and misses. It’s not about being right all the time; it’s about letting the data guide the way and being open to unexpected twists and turns.

Practicing What You Preach

These alerts aren’t just pixels on a screen; they’re like treasure maps guiding me toward golden insights. You see, sifting through these alerts isn’t just a mindless ritual—it’s like assembling the building blocks of a secret code. And what’s the secret code, you ask? It’s all about documenting what’s actually working, turning it into these nifty Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) that anyone can pick up and follow.

Why go through the trouble, you might wonder? It’s all about keeping the gears of progress greased and ready to roll. Imagine having a guidebook filled with battle-tested strategies, proven tactics, and data-backed insights. That’s what these SOPs become—a sort of digital playbook that lets anyone on our team tap into the collective genius of our journey.

And here’s where things get really interesting—I’m not just about lip service. I believe in practicing what I preach, walking the talk, and doing more than just parroting what others say. I mean, let’s face it—anyone can toss around buzzwords and catchphrases. But it’s a whole different ball game when you’ve got skin in the game when you’re sharing not just theories but tales of trials and triumphs.

Think of it as this: when I blend my own experiences with the wisdom of the wizards I admire, it’s like crafting a magic potion of credibility. It’s like saying, “Hey, I’ve been there, done that, and I’ve got the scars and stories to prove it.” This fusion of real-life know-how and proven methodologies is like a potent elixir that makes us more than just credible—it makes us invaluable.

So, you see, those Google Alerts aren’t just digital blips; they’re breadcrumbs leading me toward a treasure trove of wisdom. It’s about taking the triumphs, the tumbles, and the insights that pop up on my radar and turning them into a roadmap for anyone eager to follow in our footsteps. It’s about proving that it’s not about the talk—it’s about the walk, the action, and the blend of authenticity and expertise that sets us apart in this digital wilderness.

We no longer need to “sell” because others are doing it for us, and our expertise shows through.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Dennis for my podcast in 2021 and since then we have maintained a friendship that grows with each interaction. I have seen Dennis' devotion to his friends and clients firsthand, and our conversations often result in us talking about how we can provide more value to the people around us. He is someone whom I can ask questions on a technical level, and look to on a personal level. If you have any hesitancy about hiring him, get over yourself and do it!

Geez, where do I start recommending Dennis? First, he is an absolutely brilliant marketer who understands where marketing is today and where it's going tomorrow. He also has an incredible passion for the International Worker community. The lessons he has taught me from his almost 20 years of experience hiring International Workers have been immense. Most importantly though. Dennis Yu is someone who wants the absolute best for you and is willing to tell you the truth. Dennis sat with me at a point in my business where I was floundering but did not want to admit it. He asked some very straight forward questions to get me to admit my issues, highlighted the issues, and then helped me create a roadmap to success.
