• Marketing – Building a fan base

Building a fan base is an age old desire. Entertainers, business, even inventors are without sales if there is no fan base. A group of people desiring a part of their brand’s message. These loyal fans will buy and support every venture they can afford. There are even times they cannot truly afford it but they love that sports team so much! So how does one build their fan base? Below are 3 inventive ways to ensure the growth of fans.

• What is your why? Why do you do what you do? Fans attach themselves to a message. If they believe in that brand’s message, or values, they will embrace the future of that brand. They are not interested in you, they are interested in what you are representing. Take one of your favorite brands or celebrities. Why do you pay to be a part of their lives? Study your favorite things, and not the results, but the process of why you care.

• Figure out your brand. A brand is made up of your voice and image. The voice is what you stand for. Your overly way you present your message verbally. What are the things you believe in speaking about? A voice is based on your values and what you want to push in your growing celebrity. At BBR Productions we believe in working together. Our universal message is represented in our actions, words, and physical imagery / style.

• Interact as much as possible. Connecting with a fan grows their connection with you. The more you respond with their efforts it will then encourage an interest in you. This is easily accomplished in our day with the internet. Utilize social media as an outlet to interact directly with fans. Always respond to comments, shares, and messages. Within reason of course, and appropriateness on their end too. Let them know you hear them.

Networking with Fans… ‘Friends’


11 10 15 Networking 01
• BBR Productions Inc : Networking with Fans… ‘Friends’

The word ‘Fan’ is actually short for ‘Fanatic’, but they are more than fanatics, they are friends. They can be friends of the ‘Brand’. They want to be friends with the Brand. They paid to see, touch, listen, and be in the experience of said Brand. Friends, or rather, guests, of a Brand want to connect on any level with the history, present and future of where it is all going.

Connecting on a more personal level begins with interaction. If at an event, the Brand’s event or another Brand’s event, be approachable. That attitude gives the friendship an opportunity to connect in a more personal way. If possible, have an item, or merchandise, to give them. This is so they leave with something to remember the meeting with.

(Always make free an options in a Brand’s early stages / charge when that Brand earns the right to sell)

Networking is all about building and cultivating relationships, this is included within the following group of people; Friends, Family, Associates, and the audience of said Brand. Making fans feel like friends is extremely important to earning their trust in what you do. Keeping it friendly builds that networking circle as well as a bond with them. Your success is not how great you are, but how well you connect with your audience.

Money Management – 5 Helpful Tips for Money Management


BBR Money Management 05• BBR Productions Inc : Money Management – 5 Helpful Tips for Money Management

Money managed properly leads to a growth in wealth. Spending less than you save is the number one rule in wealth growth. Rule number two is organizing it and managing how it flows within your system. Learn to spend money on essentials and organize income over expense for later control.

These five tips on Money Management will help anyone develop wealth.

1) Download a Budgeting APP into the phone. As money is spent or earned, keep recorded directly and instantly into the APP. This habit building activity will make any individual aware of money in and out and keep them under CAP of that budget.

2) Know your monthly average overhead to survive each month. What it cost you to live is the starting point for control over wealth growth. Once you know what it cost to live each month you can then multiple that number by 6 months and that is your minimum need for a Safety-Net.

3) Any money over your Safety-net can now be organized into your 3 Needs of Purpose; Security, Growth, and Dream accounts. Security is last minute money that can be touched when you are broke. Growth is allocated money for investments. And Dream is for those big things you want, like a vacation, or a nice new guitar!

4) To determine how much money can go into your 3 Needs of Purpose use the rule “60/40 Split”. Any money over your 6 month overhead is split 60/40 and then the 60% is divided evenly into your 3 Needs. (Example: if you have $100 dollars over your overhead, then $60 can go into your 3 Needs evenly and the other $40 you can use for whatever you want. You earned it! I normally place it right back into my Safety-net.

5) Research future investments while you are saving up your 3 Needs of Purpose. Learn the system and how money works. Don’t wait till you have the money. Learn while saving. Build your tools to become aware of investment opportunities and learn the difference between a liability and an asset.

Money Management – Invest the investment


BBR Money Management 04
• BBR Productions Inc : Money Management – Invest the investment

When a dollar becomes two then make the best of that gain. Wealth comes from investments. Smart investments come from organizing money so there is cash flow to play with. As investments earn income there are smarter ways to utilize that capital gain. Two specifically. 1) Take off the top from the initial investment, and reinvest it. 2) Organize the capital gain into the 3 Needs of Purpose.

When investments earn that capital gain this difference should be taken off the top. Leave the original investment to continue accruing capital gain throughout the year. That difference off the top can be reinvested into other assets to allow growth in an investment portfolio. Diversifying future investments helps to protect and can help secure a successful risk free attempt.

Capital gain can also be placed into the 3 Needs of Purpose to help add to Security, Growth, and Dream. Working to continue to protect future investment risks, unforeseen issues, and keeping stress levels down. Growth is allocated money dedicated to investments and thus works like play money for such opportunities. Dream is designed to give any person a chance to reward themselves and Security is to protect you.

• BBR Productions Inc : Money Management – Budgeting vs a Budget

The difference between both Budgeting vs a Budget comes with process vs preparation. Budging is maintaining a cost effective spending cap. Spending less than is saved. Where as a Budget is the figuring of those caps. To budget is to set caps and restrictions. Figuring out each category of where and when to spend. Mastering how Budgeting works begins with understand a budget.

Starting with an average month expense list. Take that list to organize categories and place caps on those expenses. Figure out which expense are Wants vs Needs, and cut accordingly. Eating out is usually a ‘Want’ which can be cut fairly easily. Leisure is also a ‘Want’. A ‘Need’ is rent, groceries, utility bills, hygiene, etc. Take 3 to 6 months of past bank statements and add up each category expense.

Once these Caps are figured into a person’s lifestyle it comes down to habit building. Keeping to strict restraints until money begins to overflow into a person’s ‘3 Needs of Purpose’. Learning to organize and prepping for future months helps take managing control back over a financial budget. A yearly expense should be saved a little each month. That’s a nice helpful truth!

Money Management – Cover your expenses


BBR Money Management 02
• BBR Productions Inc : Money Management – Cover your expenses

Figuring out a budget creates monthly caps which are based on a monthly average. Normally it is suggested to take 3 months and average them out. However, a full year gives a better overall example of an average monthly budget. By taking the Monthly Average and multiplying it by 3, it sets a cap total for covering expenses up to 3 months.

This money saved is known as a ‘Safety Net’. Or total covered expenses. The best way to approach a Safety Net is by maintaining 3 months of capital into a designated account. Always maintain 3 months worth of capital within this account. While any money over expenses can now be placed in 3 other accounts known as the ‘3 Needs of Purpose’ : Security, Growth, and Dream.

Continuing this process helps to grow strength in fueling a long lived company/life. Allow Security to protect calculated opportunities to risk chances. Growth is allocated moneys to place into investments. Stay aware of small investments; Stocks, Bonds, Mutual Funds, Intellectual Properties. Then move onto larger investments; Real estate, Businesses, I.O.U.’s, and Commodities.
