BASKETBALL BUSINESS ON PINTEREST?

I found our Infographic of  the Week addressing the topic of whether or not I should invest time on another social media network.  My feelings are that I can only spread myself so thin and want to pick two or three platforms and contribute meaningful value to the basketball entrepreneur community.

Should Your Basketball Training Business Be On Pinterest?

After looking thru the infographic, I have decided that visual content is important.  That I need to do a better job capturing meaningful moments in my basketball business and sharing that.  I am putting Pinterest in the someday maybe list that I will revisit once I have demonstrated a greater commitment to capturing, gathering and curating visual assets.

IS YOUR BASKETBALL BUSINESS WINNING OR SUCCEEDING?

With every new basketball training client we are faced with the opportunity to improve the life of a young person.

With every challenge that stands in our way, we can feel the pressure of knowing we are being watched and judged.

Our basketball based business is often judged by some unusual metrics.  Our bottom line often ignored.  And our choice of a profession is even laughed at by some.

Are we creating winners?  How do we measure success?  How do we design the daily activities of our business around success and winning?

Basketball Coach John Wooden breaks down the difference and some tips for us to create winners and success in our players, children, and ourselves.

 

THOUGHT LEADERSHIP AND BASKETBALL TRAINING

Be Credible

Get Found

Profit From Your Passion

 

Thought leaders are inherently credible and usually easily found.  Are you a thought leader in your basketball community?  Is your basketball business liked and trusted?  Do people call you for advice?  I am a basketball trainer but get about 10 calls per month  from people looking for AAU basketball teams.  Often I get the voicemail message and have other more profitable tasks to handle.   I still take the time to call people back and give them 5 minutes of my time.  It is the responsibility of a thought leader to serve.

We provide basketball training to about 100 kids.  Injuries are a part of the game and can be an overwhelming experience for parents.  We put together a list of doctors who came highly rated in our interviews of doctors, therapists, coaches, and other parents.  This list would be an example of one of our thought leadership activities.  It positions us as a thought leader and the reward is you slowly earn trusted adviser status.

Be a servant leader and share your experience and thoughts.  Profiting from your passion is not always a  monetary reward.   It is the privilege  of giving as a thought leader.  If you can share some of your proven thought leader activities, we would love to hear them.

EDUCATIONAL BASKETBALL VIDEOS AND MARKETING

educational basketball video marketingConsidering starting down the road of video marketing thru the use of educational basketball videos?

Many basketball trainers have this on their someday maybe list.  With the arrival of HD video cameras on your iphone, there are few obstacles to getting started.  Here are some recommendations:

1.  Plan your story in advance.

2.  Keep it under 3 minutes.  If you want it longer, make it a 3 part series etc.

3.  Be authentic.  Don’t try to go from Playground Legend to Matt Lauer when the director says “Action.”

4.  Don’t have a director?  Get a tripod.

5.  Rent some decent lighting from your local camera equipment shop.  Way cheaper than you think and basketball gyms tend to have terrible lighting further worsened by wooden floors.

6.  Upload it and do some editing with Windows Moviemaker- it is free and probably already on your computer.  The software is very, very intuitive and easy to learn.  iMovie works well too for Apple peeps.

7.  Don’t let the perfect get in the way of the good.  Publish.  Ship.  Produce.

8.  Have fun.

Here are some more tips by a master of educational videos.  Sal Khan of the Khan Academy.  His videos have been viewed 240 million times.  Full article in Fast Company inspired this post.

Del Harris and “On Point” Leadership

 

I recommend this book by Del Harris.  I met him many years ago in Manhattan Beach California and he was a class act.  Spoke with him via email and he shared the details of his new book drawing parallels between point guard leadership, servant leadership, leading from multiple roles, and Biblical stories as well.  Good stuff.  Thanks Del!

DECIDING WHICH BUSINESS BOOKS TO READ – CAN YOU HELP?

How do we separate the trendy (and sometimes trashy) from the hidden gems that can deliver value to our lives and bottom line?

Choosing business books to read can be difficult.  We would love to get hear your favorites and a soundbyte as to the value they delivered to you.  Here is a cool info-graphic that takes thru the process of selection.  Please add your comments.  Basketball business recommendations are cool, but this is a big picture question.

Of the books below I can recommend the following:

Launch

Good to Great

Rework

The Lean Startup (although I prefer a similar work called Running Lean by Ash Maurya)

Inbound Marketing

Purple Cow (or anything Seth Godin)

The 4 Hour Work Week (with a disclaimer that I think the premise is somewhat ridiculous- there are some very interesting tidbits in the book that we can all use.)

What can you share?
