Today my Idea in the Shower was What If People Charged What They Were Worth?

What if your hourly rate, your package price, or your annual program, or whatever you do was priced really high? I hate to see that some of you are NOT charging what you are worth for your services or products.

When people ask me what they should charge for their program, I answer that “you should charge as much as you can without stuttering”.

So let’s talk about pricing today!

I’ve found that many people starting out look at the marketplace, their competitors’ prices, and they charge something similar or many times, lower, because they are new to the business. That’s not the best thing to do!

For example, many times people who have the education and training needed in an industry but who are new entrepreneurs charge less than someone who has been an entrepreneur in that same industry for a longer period of time, but without the same level of training! Just because they’ve been in business longer doesn’t mean they are better. These new entrepreneurs should be charging what they are worth right out of the gate! They can still negotiate custom packages and pricing or beta test pricing with a lower price. When you are starting out, you need to get some clients to try your service or product; you need to get feedback and testimonials – people who like what you offer and have good things to say about you (so you can get more clients, right).

You need to start thinking outside the box about your pricing!

My Ideas I Get While in the Shower this morning is about Ideas I had about my new podcast today while I was in the Shower.

For those of you who didn’t know, I used to have a radio show on Blog Talk Radio with many followers. But once that show ran its course and I haven’t replaced it (yet) with another radio show or podcast, but…

I am starting up my new podcast very soon and my Ideas today were about what to name it. I’m trying to come up with the best name for it, something cutting edge. It dawned on me to ask for you, my followers; to give me some input on what you think is the best name for my new podcast.

I have several brands such as Jumpstart Your Marketing and Love Money to name a couple. I’ve thought about naming the podcast something similar to the name of some of my Events, like Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend or my Love and Money Live event.

My ultimate goal for being in business is to help others create a BIGGER LIFE for themselves. And a Big Life to me means more Love in your Life, more Money in your Business and living bigger – whatever that means to you!

Click the video to learn more about my Brands and my “Ideas While in the Shower” about naming my podcast.

What kind of feedback can you give me?

Interested in coming to my Live Event in November? Just go to the LiveBigEvents.com page to get the details of my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event or head over to JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com. Time’s running out to register, so don’t wait. This event is more like a training event so check out the benefits you’ll receive by attending.

Hope to see you there.

If you are an entrepreneur who is really trying to ramp up your business and especially if you are in the first 5 years of your business, this is my Special Invitation for you to join us at my November LIVE Event because it will be perfect for YOU!

I talk to many entrepreneurs and they tell me they listen to podcasts, sign up for webinars, they watch You Tube videos, and opt in to several people’s email lists to get GREAT INFORMATION and to learn more about how to create a profitable business.

Does this sound like you?

Have you signed up to dozens of email lists and are you listening to a variety of several people’s podcasts, videos, webinars, etc?

Guess What? That’s a lot of learning!

Know What? Many people who do this find they are spending their time learning but NOTHING IS GETTING DONE! They are not getting further in their business because they are not TAKING the TIME to implement all they’ve learned into their business so they can have a smooth running, consistent money making business.

Inconsistency is a problem that many business owners deal with. And here’s the rub. If you are following several mentors and trying to implement several different philosophies or strategies, you’ll be getting inconsistent or conflicting information.

I’ve been working in marketing and sales for over 15 years now and in my opinion, you need to pick only ONE mentor! Sure, it’s fine to go to a few other events here and there, but I’m recommending you shut off all of the different tele-classes, unsubscribe to some of those lists or put them in a separate folder so you don’t get sidetracked by that BRIGHT SHINY OBJECT SYNDROME.

What you need is help and direction with the order of importance for you and your business. You need someone who can look at the BIG PICTURE of all the things you are currently doing in your business as well as the things you want to be doing several years from now. Perhaps you need to start taking BABY STEPS toward making your business more profitable and it could be that you need to take GIANT LEAPS.

Click the Video below to listen to my “Special Invitation For You…” to learn more about why picking one mentor is more beneficial to you and your business.

 

Are you Ready to work with someone who can see the BIG PICTURE of your business, where it is now and guide you what to do to make it grow and be more profitable? This is my PASSION! AND you will get the type of direction I’ve shared with you in these video tips whether you work with me one on one, or if you are in my LIVE BIG MASTERMIND or if you come to one of my LIVE EVENTS!

You can invest 3 days and get the direction and focus to get super clear on what you are doing and see the options of whatever is possible. GROW through your comfort zone to stretch yourself to DO MORE, BE MORE, REACH MORE PEOPLE and make a lot MORE MONEY doing WHAT YOU LOVE!

If this has resonated with you today, I want you to do these 3 things:

    1. Stop listening to so many different people. Get rid of too much information overload because what you really need is a Focused Path of Action.
    2. If you want to work with me or to find out how I can help you, come to a call with me. It’s not a hard sales call, seriously! You’re going to get some great ideas (FREE) and we can both see if working together might be a good fit! Get your free complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: http://www.AskKat.biz.
    3. Come to my LIVE EVENT – JumpstartYourBizinaWeekend.com – November 3rd, 4th, & 5th in Sacramento. I encourage you to register for one of my live events sooner than later because if you are like many entrepreneurs, you need to make more money NOW!

If you are unable to attend my November Live Event but are interested in a future event, you can get information and schedule of my future events at LiveBigEvents.com

But if you are Ready to Jumpstart Your Business, I hope to see you sooner than later!

Talk to You Again Soon!

I want to share some tips with you about Live Events and how to host your own Live Events. While networking in my local area, I’ve noticed that there are more people who are hosting their own Events.

But first, I want to let you know that I’m sharing a bunch of new free gifts on my website – there are currently 12 of them – that address a variety of topics.  Just head over to the JumpstartYourMarketing.com website and go to the “Resources” page.  You’ll find a page where I’ve listed my Recommended Vendors; people who can help you with a variety of tasks like shopping carts, email marketing, etc.  AND there is also a page where you’ll find my FREE GIFTS.   Go check it out!

Now back to my tips about Hosting Your Live Event…

I’m frequently asked about how to host live events by people who may or may not have been coached on this important topic. It’s clear to me who hasn’t received coaching on hosting live events and I’m sure these people are not getting the results they had expected.

I’ve been to many different types of events – some have been extravagant, attended by many people where we were treated to free food and drink. Yes, they were phenomenal! But for most of us entrepreneurs, we need to have the end result in mind when we plan our events.

How will we or can we make the event profitable?

One of the biggest profit killers of a live event budget is providing too much food and beverage and/or the number of rooms blocked off in the hotel where the event is being held, if you don’t have enough people signing up at your event.

There are many ways to have an engaging and exciting event without spending too much money or blowing up your budget. For those who are just starting to hold events, my advice is: You need to be practical.  And that’s the kind of advice and guidance I provide when coaching people who are holding live events.  Keep the end result in mind – Keep it profitable.

Click the video to hear more tips about “Hosting Your Own Events – Do’s and Don’ts!”

 

I would love to talk to you more about how to hosting your own live event. This is a topic I discuss what to do and how to manage a live event as one of the business models you can implement in your business at MY Live Events. My live events are somewhat intimate with approximately 60 attendees. There is networking and spot coaching involved as well as loads of training. My next event is November 3, 4, and 5th, 2017 and it’s being held in the Sacramento area. I’ve been holding this event for several years and it’s AMAZING! This is my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend Intensive event. We covered so many of the topics you need to get your business off the ground and make it profitable quickly. I’ll cover several different types of marketing strategies and business models. I show you several ways to do things. Join us at this next event. Just go to LiveBigEvents.com to see all of the juicy details and reserve your spot.

It’s all about building the life you love on your terms. Hope to see you there.

Today I’m sharing a couple of important tips in this episode of “Ideas I Get While in the Shower”.

These are things that I thought about today – things that I have to make sure are done too!  I want to make sure you are aware and not neglecting things you have to pay attention to.

The two things I want to talk to you about today is your website and your email marketing.

    1. Your Website  –  this is your most important marketing tool but many business owners are not using it effectively.  Also, you have to keep your website updated, especially if it’s a WordPress website.  If you haven’t looked at the back end of your website for a while, you really should do that soon!  It’s critical.
    2. Your Email Marketing  – Sure you need forms on your website but there are so many bots that spammers use to scrap email addresses these day.  You don’t want Spammers on your email list. Many people are getting email subscribers in their list that are obviously spammers.

Listen to the video below to learn more about keeping these tools updated when I share my “Ideas I Get While in the Shower – Episode 2”

Keeping your systems updated is critical to your business.  Do you have systems in place yet to help you automate your business?   Come talk with me about this and more in a complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: AskKat.biz

I’m sharing tips today about how to do quick video tips for your business. They can be like the Video Biz Tips I share with you. Or your videos can be another income stream for you.

There are so many people in business who are NOT doing video yet and I’m urging you to get started NOW! It’s past time for you to embrace video. This post is definitely for you.

If you are already doing video in your business, these video biz tips may still be helpful to you because as you know, it’s not always easy to come up with things to talk about.

First of all, you need to get past the notion that you have to wait until you have everything in place and it’s just right. You can video, off the cuff. I regularly get many revenue producing ideas for myself, my clients, and my mastermind members. And, just the other day, I did a video to share some of the ideas I had while in the shower.

Video can be used to share info and tips. It can also be used as a revenue producing resource. If there is something you know or know how to do and you can teach others, why not record it on video and create a program or online course.

Video is an AMAZING resource. It’s free to use for marketing purposes – well it is right now.

Click the video below to hear more tips and ideas about “What to Share on YOUR Video Tips!”

Are you on my email list? I don’t send a lot of emails, but when I do send them, I share a couple of tips that I think you will be interested in. Make sure you get on my email list, if you’re not already, because I’ve created a new program that will be starting soon and I’ll be sharing the info to those who are paying attention to my emails. It’s an online course where you’ll learn a lot of revenue generating tips, most of them are online. You’ll learn how to reach more people without working so hard.

Go to Jumpstart Your Marketing.com and sign up for the FREE Biz Kit. You’ll get some great tips with that kit but you will also get access to sign up for these affordable programs when I launch them.

Looking forward to talking to you soon!

Ideas in the Shower #1

I’m off to go Camping for the weekend in Yosemite with my family and one of my clients and her family too but first I wanted to share a few fun ideas I had in the shower…

This is something that actually happens to me almost every single morning, even weekends, is that I get ideas in the shower. Do you? I get some of my best ideas while in the shower!

Most of the time the ideas are for my business, sometimes for clients, sometimes they’re ideas for creating content around or for my events and so much more!

I love the time I have in the shower, even if it’s just a quick shower, I use it as my “meditation” time honestly…. some people need 10-30 minutes of meditation to get downloads coming in for them, I need about 90 seconds, it’s great!

Click the video below to hear an example of some of the recent “Ideas I Get While in the Shower”

So what do you think?  Are you thinking about some new ideas now?  I talk to a lot of people and can think of ideas quickly that will help them make more money doing what they love!

I’m excited to bring you a new video tip about how to Maximize Leads when you travel for business!

When you travel to events and speaking gigs, you want to meet the most amount of people, prospects, and referral sources that you can while on your trip! If you are not currently traveling for your business, you can still implement these strategies that I do in your local area while networking or attending an event that’s close to home. These tips will work whether you are traveling locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.

Many of my clients have been asking me questions about what I do to maximize my leads when traveling because they are starting to travel more for their business too.

Of course, many of the things I do are guerrilla marketing strategies and they depend on the amount of time I’m in another city, the length of the event, and so on. You have to be flexible and review at the event schedule beforehand to make the best use of your time.

Click the video below to learn my secrets on “How to Maximize Leads When You Travel for Biz”

 

So what do you think? I encourage you to take advantage of these free or low cost tips because THEY WORK! You have the opportunity to get more clients and possibly pay for your trip.

If you’d like to talk to me more about these or other strategies to help you make more money in your biz, just head over to askkat.biz – sign up for a call and let’s talk about you and your business! I can help you Jumpstart Your Business FAST!

Today’s tip is in response to many questions I’ve received from my coaching clients and Live Big Mastermind clients that can be best handled with a direct marketing approach.

If you want to target prospects who you don’t know or those in industries that are different from your own, these tips are for you!

No one “likes” to cold call, I get that. But direct marketing to a prospect list will work if you are creative and memorable – you have to Stand Out!

First of all, don’t send an email to someone you don’t know or who doesn’t know you. This is a huge mistake that many people make. You email will likely not be opened; most people will delete it without opening it. I use a different approach because it takes multiple touches to attract the attention of the prospect, referral sources, someone who books speakers, etc. My marketing and sales experience began in offline marketing, so this is one area that I learned to do quite well.

Click the video below to get more “Direct Marketing Tips to Target Prospects”

Now you have a better idea of some things you need to be successful with Direct Marketing. If you’d like to chat with me in a complimentary strategy session about this approach or any other aspect of offline and online marketing, just go to askkat.biz to sign up and I’ll be in touch with you soon!

Today I want to talk to you about FOLLOW UP!  Yes, you know you not doing enough follow up IF you are doing any at all, right?

I’ve been in business for 15 years now and before that I worked with a  couple of organizations where I was out in the community locally in Northern California.  I became  really good with following up because I knew that I had to continue the conversation to build relationships.

When I started my own business, it seems that all I did was Networking and Follow Up.  Why?  This was before websites were as popular as they are now AND social media wasn’t even around.  But guess what?

Most of my sales and new clients still come from Follow Up!
