LG Skins: Ames Sneaks Another One In

Well, the 25th Skins Game finished with Stephen Ames doing what he did last year and dodging several bullets to make a $650k putt. BUT, that is the Skins game and since Indian Wells signed up for at least three more years of the Skins Game we can only hope that Fred will be back to take a walk with Stephen around the 18 Hole ATM.

Now it comes down to who you would like to see play Fred and Stephen next year. For me I would like to see Woody Austin with either Chris DeMarco or Jerry Kelly grind it. It is the hard core money players who are needed to bring the zest back into the game.

I would like to see Phil Mickelson get serious and bring the fun back into his game so he could take Fred’s place one day, but right now, I do not see anyone who can play the Skins like Mr Couples….not even Tiger.

OH, well, guess we will have to just wait to see who it will be who plays next year’s LG Skins Game.

IBGS: Getting a New Look!

If you have been out and around then you have seen that I am in the mist of overhauling my IBGS site. Needless to say, it is well over due. I am not sure what it is going to exactly look like, but I know it will be different.

For this project I am taking an international approach. My friend and leading international internet marketer,paul.jpg Paul OFlaherty will be serving as General Contractor for this project. He will be keeping an eye on producing something that answers my perpetual questions…Is This Really ALL Worth It?

Seems Paul is asking himself that questions a few hundred times a day and since our series of podcasts on all of the problems we have found on the internet feels that this project will give him a chance to develop something that will visually help with providing viewers a look at all of the stuff I offer people professionally as well as personally.

I get excited thinking about this new change and even more excited to ending the year with something new and positive to build on for the New Year. As far as GOLF and BUSINESS…yes, I will be writing plenty on the two and the two together…plus, my new book and some other new publications are still in the works for next year.

Taking a glimpse at the New Year, I see several things cooking that hopefully make this project Paul and I have been working on something we can sit back and say Is This Really All Worth It?

Look for an announcement soon of the launch of the new IBGS site.

The Business of Blogging

The Business of Blogging and what does it have to do with Business Golf.

Well first of all, every business should be blogging. It does not matter if the company has one employee or…tens of thousands of employees all over the world. Everyone one of them need to blog and play business golf.

Why? Well, blogging puts out in front of people information that comes across 100 times better than a slick commercial.

Yaw, I know, that puts a ton of artsy type people who make nothing but commercial out of a job…well that is where the golf comes in place.

Learning to play business golf and blogging would provide these individuals an opportunity to express themselves while marketing for their marketing companies.

There will always be a need for honest marketing and blogging is honest marketing. Try both, playing golf and blogging…it covers both the offline networking as well as he online networking. A win-win for everyone.

Make your business of blogging for you business.

Golf: Offline? or Online?

As I have mentioned and will be writing more about in my next book, the millions of golfers that internet marketers are saying are online just are not online.

Why? Well to answer that questions you need to know the number one reason a golfer is a golfer and that is to play golf. Yes, play golf is what a golfer wants to do, not read about it or talk about it.

So if this is the case, who are all those people who are joining all of these golf groups? I think this questions could be broadened to include who are these people joining any online group?

From my one year investigation and interviews of hundreds of golfer, both online and offline, what I found is that over 60% of the profiles placed on golf group sites are done so by people who just stopped by for a view and never come back again. Now, are these people golfers? On the most part, No, these people who stop by are not golfers.

Then you have the marketers, which represent about 20% of the members of a golf site, who fill out profiles in hopes a real golfer will want to be their friend so they can spam the crap out of them.

Then on the other hand there are a large number of people who join golf groups who are active members but are not golfers. They pretend to be golfers for a large number of reasons that are not golf related.

So where are the golfers? Golfers are where you would think they would be, on the golf course, in the golf stores or at the country club’s 19th Hole. Anywhere golf is played is where you are going to find golfers.

So, why am I and others online talking golf? Well I am talking business golf which crosses over into the field of business which there are several million business people online. So I am here marketing to them how golf can be a business tool and the fact that they should be out on the golf course playing golf if they want to tap into a $6 billion dollar market. Not here pumping up SEO directories or whatever other internet marketing schemes they have cooked up to build their business.

What can be done to get more golfers online? Well, since my business is to find solutions to problems in the business world that is what I am working on right now. So you will just have to stay tuned to find out what offline golfers have told me would get them online.

More can be learned on this and other related subjects at the IBGS Blog site.
