“7 IDEALS” Methodology Overview & Invitation

HOT NEWS: I'm working on the "7 IDEALS METHODOLOGY" video presentation, the blueprint (infographic & guide), the 7 ideals page, and a brand-new contest. For more information, join the newsletter and get exclusive bonuses and discounts for a lifetime.

Overview & Invitation

This methodology is the end result of over 30 years in business and marketing and I'm working on it since late 2021.

A systematic and structured approach to developing and implementing proprietary and custom-made strategies, processes, and campaigns for small businesses and startups.

It’s a methodology specifically designed to help you compete efficiently in the overcomplicated marketplace.

It’s a proprietary system that looks at your business as a whole and gives you a clear path – a roadmap to follow – a solid and flexible strategy and action plan.

It involves a set of principles, processes, models, frameworks, tactics, and techniques that you can use to achieve and surpass your business goals and objectives.

It’s not just a methodology to promote your products and services, that’s only one tiny aspect. It’s a methodology that helps you design, run, manage, and grow businesses. From an initial idea to becoming a leading name in your respective industry and beyond.

Starting small is actually the biggest benefit in this multi-dimensional, fast-changing marketplace.

Small businesses are personal, we get to interact with our customers face-to-face, and serve them at the highest level possible.

We know we can’t compete with giant corporations on budget, resources, or technology, but when it comes to delivering user experiences… guess… who’s the boss!

It’s a carefully designed, strategically organized methodology that helps small business owners understand the market inside out, create a competitive advantage, and develop unmatched – innovative products that consumers can’t enjoy and recommend enough.

DAILY BREAKING NEWS - Marketing, Business, Economy, Multimedia + Last video commentary + Latest Additions + The "7 Ideals" Methodology NEWS & UPDATES

WealthyAffiliate - Why Does Everyone Want to be an Influencer? (most make no money) VIDEO:

I know we tend to look up to those that we view as public figures, and that is the case with influencers now on social media. There is a problem though. We perceive these folks through a much different lens than who they actually are, and we also perceive these folks with "followings" to be much more successful than they are.

Do you feel like in desperation mode when you are trying to engage on social media?…You can’t only use texts or links referring back to your blog and wait to get noticed.No , you will disappear in a hurricane of news streamlines , data feeds and discussions.





You need to get visual more than ever before.To attract followers that will engage with your messages and hopefully they will share your posts with their network.


Besides the images , infographics or other compelling visual content there are other ways to entertain fans.GIFs is the new trend , you can see them everywhere.Facebook , Twitter , Google + , Reddit or even on Pinterest , Instagram and Tumblr.

With GIFs you can express your emotions , besides you are a human being , not a marketing machine that bombards people with ads and special offers.


One of my favourite sources of GIFs online is….


Giphy – All GIFs are Free to Use and the Content is Endless



Website: Giphy


I want to share a quote found on their website

“It’s a more organic and intuitive medium to relate an experience – more so than a photo or a video. Think of how we recollect memories: close your eyes and think of something from your past. You don’t see a frozen still image – you see gifs!

Even when we dream at night we see fragments of events that collectively create some kind of narrative which we assemble into a story when we wake up. Even when we daydream we don’t watch a full-feature uninterrupted film in our heads – we think in fragments, often non-linear. “




On the About page Giphy offers instructions on how to use them.

  • In texts
  • Share through social media (all the major platforms are included)
  • Embed
  • Add to any URL
  • Convert them for Instagram
  • Upload them to Giphy
  • Download
  • GIF shortener


Giphy Categories


  • Actions , Adjectives , Animals , Anime
  • Arts & Design
  • Cartoons & comics , Celebrities , Decades , Emotions

  • Reactions , Science , Sports

I am sure you will find a GIF that you like in less than 1 minute as every category opens new sub-categories with plenty of GIFs inside.


Sharing – Embedding


Social Networks

Embed – iFrame , JS , HTML5 , I think the HTML5 option suits better on my blog.But you have to try in order to be sure.



A trick that you might not know


WordPress Editor (text mode)

If you want to center the GIF on your screen or any other type of embedded content , like videos from You-Tube you can easily do that by entering …

<center> before the embed code

and close the code with </center>

don’t forget to surround your code with    &nbsp;

Final Words



But you might ask …”OK , I used GIFs , that can guarantee an increase in my engagement results?”

Of course not , some people might not like them , but some people don’t like images or others don’t like to read.
