Just a short introduction of myself and my being listed at a Partner in the HeadTalker World
Let's start with where crowdsourcing started as it is the basis for the HeadTalker platform. We will also discuss the social media that HeadTalker uses to help spread your message. You will also get the basic idea of how your HeadTalker works within Social Media.
Who can use a HeadTalker campaign successfully? Anyone can use a HeadTalker Campaign and it can work on any product, service, fundraiser, or cause you can dream up.
Below is a list of things you need to be prepared for your HeadTalker.
1. HeadTalker account - Sign up your your account at HeadTalkers website
2. Description of your campaign - A long description can be as long as you desire but you need to have a short description in mind also one that is less than 114 Characters.
3. Image to use in your campaign. (Size that works the best 311px Wide X 210px High)
4. Incorporate some Hashtags into your short description of 114 words or less
5. Background Image (Optional) - This step is optional and will only be seen behind the details of your campaign. I like to use a specific one. However, it is not required and a plain white background will be used if you don't load a background image up.
6. YouTube Video (Optional, but suggested) - This need to be a short video about what you are offering in your HeadTalker campaign.
Naming your campaign - You only get 30 characters to making your opening statement. Use them wisely and put some thought into the message.
Your message is important. This is what gets shared across everyones social media accounts. This is where you need to add hashtags if you want. The only catch is you only get 115 characters to work with. So make sure you put just as much thought into this as to naming your campaign. This is a vital step.
Remember the more steps a person has to take makes it less likely that they will follow through. So make sure you are sending them to the link that creates action. Don't send them to your webpage where they have to click another link to purchase your product. Send them right to the buy page for a product. If you are musician promoting a song send them right to a place the can hear and purchase your music.
Adding a YouTube link is optional, however adding a YouTube video will create and image at the top of your campaign which will help you campaign get noticed. All you need to do it get the url link to the YouTube video and insert it into this section.
Visuals are super important in all social media. Remember the size? It was 311px wide X 210 px high. Your picture speaks volumes of your campaign so make sure it is on target and appealing to the eye.
Backgrounds are optional! You can totally skip this step if you desire. I however have a signature background I love to use on all my campaigns, it is my personal stamp if you will.
What category does your HeadTalker campaign belong in?
The Categories are : Animals, Art, Causes, Charity, Community, Crowdfunding, Environment, Fashion, Film, Games, Giveaways, Health, Literature, Music, Others, & Technology
This is where you get to give the big picture of your campaign. You can elaborate here on your campaign and share exactly what it is all about. Make sure to take advantage of the ability to put hyperlinks here so you can get some traffic to your page before your HeadTalker tips.
Here you pick how many supporters you want to achieve in your campaign. You can choose from 25 to 500. An important thing to remember is that their is no penalty for going over. If you say you want 25 supporters and get 500 all is good. However, if you say you want 500 supporters and only get 499 then your HeadTalker does not go live. So make sure to error on the low side.
The end date of your campaign is the day your social media message will be blasted out across all social media accounts of your supporters. Make sure to think about the best time and date for your campaign. Start by making sure you give yourself enough time to get the support you need. Pick a date far enough in the future to reach your supporter goals. Also pick a time that your message goes out with your audience in mind, if you are doing something for kids then 3am on a Saturday night might be the wrong time to send out your message. Lastly think about what time zone most of your people are in and try to balance a good time with those on the west coast as well as those on the east coast.
This is where you add your email and your twitter account. Make sure to double check these especially your email. You don't want your messages going to the wrong place.
Time to submit your campaign so that Headtalker can approve it. Once approved you can start promoting it and gaining support.
HeadTalker will notify you via email that your campaign is live.
Then just sign into your HeadTalker account and you will see your campaign.

Social Media is moving at the sound of light. We can either be prepared for the changes or just get passed by. I prefer to try to stay in front of the changes. Think about the first people that got involved with Facebook and how successful they became, while the others were trying to catch up. Let's not be those people!
What is coming from me in the future on Udemy? Well I have several passions so look for more form me in the following areas.
Traveling entrepreneurs, Drs. Rob + Janelle Alex, Ph.D. are mentoring entrepreneurs and authors around the world. As best selling authors, speakers, marketing and branding experts their podcast Authors Talk About It (soon to be rebranded as Creative Author Marketing) has become quite popular. They’re new adventures have led them to rebrand overall and set Mission Date Night on the back burner – though the MDN podcast was very popular, too! Together, Rob and Janelle, have authored over 125 books including the Mission Date Night Adventures, the Sexy Challenges series (and newly released, Sexy Challenges 33 Adventures: Create Powerful Energy with Passion, Purpose and Love), the Intimate Adventures series, Collaborate with Your Soul, Richer Together: Secrets to Working, Living and Loving Side-by-Side, the Full Moon Approaches, Speaking Kind Words and more. They are currently working on a new fiction – it’ll be their first non-fiction book.
They offer programs, workshops and private mentoring focused on creative marketing and powerful branding, so that entrepreneurs and authors can get their message out into the world in a bigger way while having a ton of fun doing it.
Their youngest son, Boegley is traveling along with them and studying as a worldschooler. Their two older sons, Reggie and Anthony, are grown and have spread their wings on their own journeys.
Dr. Rob Alex, Ph.D. is brilliant at coming up with outside-the-box ideas. He is currently creating fantastic courses available on Udemy around creative marketing and relationships. It’s fascinating how the relationship skills he teaches to couples crosses over to authors and entrepreneurs with their relationships to clients and fans/readers. He had a spiritual awakening in 2010, which happened due to transcendent lovemaking experiences. This encouraged him to bring more spiritual perspectives into his work – metaphysical concepts alongside practical ideas. He teaches how to use ancient wisdom to expand your thinking while creating more personal life energy and how to direct that energy to develop amazing relationships (personally and professionally) and live the life of your dreams.
He studied business and human sexuality at Penn State University. His Bachelor of Metaphysics, Master of Metaphysical Sciences, and Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counseling were earned from the University of Metaphysical Sciences. His dissertation was Orgasmic Laughter: Sex and Humor are Unexpected Portals to the Universe.
While Dr. Janelle Alex, Ph.D. uses a blend of body consciousness, spiritual psychology, transpersonal counseling, animal energy and spiritual connection, she also uses very practical and down-to-earth approaches to help women entrepreneurs create leverage with their books (and in their businesses) so they can streamline their time and have thriving relationships, be fantastic moms and have fabulous success in their careers. She has spent the past 26 years helping others connect to their creative energy – their life force energy. She teaches how to integrate unique and practical tools to traverse the journey of relationship with yourself, your brand and your book. She’s a master at helping you create a book marketing plan that fits your brand and fits YOU.
She graduated summa cum laude from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College with a B.S. in Psychology and a minor in Criminology. Her graduate degrees include a Master of Arts in Transpersonal Psychology from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology (now Sofia University), Masters in Metaphysical Sciences from the University of Metaphysics and her Ph.D. in Transpersonal Counseling from the University of Sedona. Her dissertation was Sacred Intimacy: Transforming Your Life Through Sacred Relationship.
