Getting Links with Linkbait – Part 3

The following is Part #3 of a 4 part audio transcribing (part #1 is here and part #2 is here) of an interview with Michael Dorausch, founder of Planet Chiropractic. The audio was transcribed from a phone interview which focused on marketing and tips for building traffic to one’s website. Andrew: Okay so first thing is I go and offer to blog on other people’s sites. The second thing is I write top ten lists or top seven lists about influential, interesting people. And at the very least it gets me noticed by them and hopefully it gets them to […]

Coming Forth with New and Productive Ideas

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I love affirmations. I’ve been reading affirmations every morning, midafternoon, and evening, for as long as I can remember. This past weekend I was in Las Vegas attending a roundtable and chiropractic conference when someone handed me a motivational card with an affirmation on the front, and business related information on the back. Let’s take a look… The card reads My creative mind will come forth with new and productive ideas. The bottom of the card reads Say 108x out loud. (3x — 3x a day) This isn’t the size of an ordinary business card, it […]

Blogging is the way to get traffic to my site

The following is Part #2 of a 4 part audio transcribing (part #1 is here) of an interview with Michael Dorausch, founder of Planet Chiropractic. The audio was transcribed from a phone interview which focused on marketing and tips for building traffic to one’s website. (photo: Sock puppets may not bring as much traffic as you’d hope.) Andrew: Okay, so that’s one of the issues that I see out there. People will launch a new site. They will say “I know that blogging is the way to get traffic to my site, get new credibility and get more attention.”  They […]

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. As it turns out, this is the long-awaited part #6 of an audio series featuring Dr. John DeMartini which was recorded at a Parker Chiropractic conference in Las Vegas, Nevada during January of 2001. Here’s a brief transcript from the opening… I was sitting there on the floor when I was 18 years old, and I’d locked myself in my room, and I was studying, because I had dedicated my life to studying in mastering the art of speaking, and understanding, and reading, and learning. I locked myself in the room and I started studying the […]

I Believe That Our Life is Magnificent

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. This is segment number five of a six part audio series featuring chiropractor, Dr. John D. Martini (featured in the film The Secret) speaking at a chiropractic conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. I thought that all six parts had been posted, but two people recently reminded me that they could not find #5 and #6. Thanks for the heads up, glad someone’s paying attention! An MP3 audio player should load below which will play part five of this presentation. Although the talk was presented at a chiropractic conference, and the majority of attendees were chiropractors, the […]

Snapshot E-Mail Spam Targeted at Chiropractors

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. It’s not like I’ve seen any decrease in spam showing up in my e-mail inbox (or the admin section for comments on this blog) but we’ve been taking a different approach with the topic lately and it’s actually gotten us some good feedback and attracted some links. Woo Hoo. I wrote about niche industry e-mail spam a few weeks ago, and it turns out a number of other small-business industries are experiencing similar types of spam created by those working inside the niche. That article has a screenshot, but this post includes another, that I grabbed […]

Chiropractic Research For Cheerleaders

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. Are NFL cheerleaders helping chiropractors raise money for research? I stumbled across an interesting eBay auction today (link below) for an Autographed Cheerleader Calendar (Washington Redskins) which is apparently listed in order to raise funds for the Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research (FCER). The screenshot to the left shows a cheerleader modeling for the October 2008 section of the calendar (that’s my birthday). The auction is open until April 9, 2008 and it already had one bid when I checked the page. According to the eBay listing, the calendar is for 2007 2008 and it […]

Community and Participation For Greater Success

By Michael Dorausch, D.C. I could have categorized this post in Rants & Raves or Marketing but I figured I’d just go with Thoughts since I’m thinking about this and writing as I go. I love participating with others to build greater community. I love doing it off-line, I love doing it online, and I love intertwining the two in ways that effectively bring people together. To those engaged in building community know it doesn’t come easy. If you’ve ever tried to organize a local 10K, a city marathon, an industry conference, a new seminar series, a blog that attracts […]
