Ever find yourself not having the time to create quality content for your blog or for your marketing activities. Well, by the time you’ve finished reading this blog post, that will never be a problem again.
Today I’m going to be sharing one of the coolest ways to create content quick and easily using your mobile phone. Below is a transcript of a recording I created using my Blackberry smartphone, plus audio file to go along with it. Check them out and leave a comment when you’re done.
Hey, guys, this is Mo Mastafa here and in today’s blog post, I’m gonna be showing you the coolest and easiest blog post or content creation strategy that you’ve probably ever heard of and the concept is using your smartphone to create content when you’re on the move.
So, as you can probably hear from the background noise, I’m actually just quickly taking a walk down to my local shops and I’m making some content here on the fly. So, I’ve got my headphones plugged into my smartphone and I’m basically just talking into the headphones as I’m walking along.
As you can hear in the background, there’s cars driving past me and literally, the recording has been going now for about a minute, and this has allowed me to create maybe a couple of hundred words worth of content, which I’m then gonna send off to my transcription service.
And they’re then gonna transcribe this audio recording into written text, send me back the text version of this, and then I can put that up on my blog.
If you’re reading it on my blog right now, you’ll see at the very end, there’ll actually be a link to this recording as well, just to give you some quick proof of the audio recording as well, and that I made this content actually while I’m on the fly.
Okay, I hope you enjoyed this one and I’ll speak to you shortly. Take care.

I want to quickly talk to you about what might just be the most important, but also most overlooked concept in online marketing… and that’s basically the importance of using your marketing as a “slippery slope”.
Now, a saying I like to remember is that marketing is all about “selling the next step”.
When it comes to information marketing, it’s important to create your marketing “pieces” as part of a bigger picture.
For example, often people will create content, perhaps in the form of a video that they’ll upload to YouTube, and they’ll say to themselves “Right, I wanna get people to sign up to my newsletter.” so at the end of the video, they’ll have a call to action (because they’ve been told they need to have a call to action) and they’ll basically tell the viewer to visit their website and opt in to their newsletter, in return for a free gift.
So far so good. However, this is where most business owners drop the ball…
Upon delivering the “free gift” it turns out to be 100% content.
Now, there’s nothing wrong with delivering great content, but the point to remember is that this is marketing, and you don’t want your marketing to stop once they get your free content. After all, you’re in business to deliver value + make a profit.
But what most people do is just half of the equation.
See, what you want them to do is go onto the next step, which is to basically invest in one of your products and services. And the only way you’re gonna do that is by thinking of your free gift as an additional marketing piece… got it?
Now this goes back to the whole “slippery slope” process I was telling you about earlier. You wanna go from creating the content that you’re gonna put online e.g. Youtube, and then sell them on the benefits of visiting your website or squeeze page.
And then from the squeeze page, you wanna sell them on the benefits of your free gift, and in your free gift you wanna sell them on the benefits of checking out your offer… usually in the form of a sales letter that promotes your product or service.
And in the sales letter, you want to obviously sell them on the benefits of your product or service… and it becomes one big ongoing sales and marketing cycle. Naturally you have to deliver value at each stage, but you must remember to market & sell at each stage too, else you face losing the prospect or customers in the process.
As a side note, you don’t want have just one product either. You wanna eventually have a library of different products and services that you can sell, each one delivering value and simultaneously promoting the next product or service.
So what next?
As an action step I want you to think about how you can start using this process within your own business and marketing materials, especially if you’re giving away free gifts or doing content marketing.
Remember it is important to deliver the value you promised, because if the value is not there or if it’s low quality and you’re not delivering on the promise you made in your videos on YouTube or on your squeeze page etc, then people are just gonna unsubscribe or never buy from you again!
So move away from thinking of your marketing as a sort of one and done process, and start of thinking of it as a river, where you’re constantly moving the prospect or customer from one step to the next step and the next. And on each step, they will be taking some form of action, whether that’s signing up for something or handing over some money in return for lots of value.
