    On Writing: Novel Construction

    in Entertainment

    World building, character development, elements of the novel, and the impact of writing in a bubble. 


    Writing a novel is a balancing act and how well you balance your plot, your characters, and your world building determine the quality of your novel. The ability to do this takes practice.

    The Prosecutor's Method of Marketing Funnel Construction

    in Business

    How do I know what things to say and in what order to say them in my marketing funnel?

    It's a question I'm asked at least once a week.


    And, while I can't give you specifics, since each niche, market, product, service, etc., is different, I can tell you a simple way to think about the construction of your marketing funnel message.


    As a fan of real crime stories and high-profile court cases, I've always enjoyed watching a good prosecutor in action.
     


     


    Seeing how, from the beginning, they methodically lay-out a cogent and persuasive argument of guilt is just a beautiful thing. One block at a time, in logical order, with proof upon proof, building an undeniable case against the defendant. In the end leaving the jury with no other plausible position to take other than one of guilty.
     


     


    If we boil down the essence of an effective message within a marketing funnel we'll find something very similar: an undeniable logical and emotional argument established by a string of assertions and claims each backed by a preponderance of proof.



    In other words, laying out the message of your marketing funnel is very similar to what a prosecutor does when laying out the message of their case.

    Mindy Salinger, who pastors a church in Kenner, Louisiana, along with her husband Cary, will join us to talk about Life Under Construction...Road Signs to Victory.

    Life Under Construction...Road Signs to Victory Part 2

    in Christianity

    We hope you joined us for last week's episode of Ministry Along the Way Radio. We had such a good conversation! It was all about the ROAD SIGNS that God uses Along the Way to guide us as we travel down life's highways. These ROAD SIGNS are the signs of Faith. They lead us home when we've lost our way. They direct us to "KEEP RIGHT" when we are on the right path. 


    Our special guest host, Mindy Salinger, will join us once again to continue sharing with us how a LIFE UNDER CONSTRUCTION, a "work in progress", can be a life destined for Victory when we heed the ROAD SIGNS. 


    We are interested to know which ROAD SIGNS "speak" to you. Dial (347) 637-3604 and let us know.


    You can listen to Ministry Along the Way Radio "live" on Tuesdays at 7pm CST.
