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.

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!

I’ve shared information in a new talk I’ve been giving about 3 Myths that you’ve been lead to believe from others about “Why It’s Not Easy to Make Money and Get Out of Overwhelm”. I’m going to dispel at least one of those myths in this Video Biz Tip today.

Myth: It’s going to take A LOT of WORK to make more money!

I talk to many entrepreneurs and when I ask them the question, “How much money do you need to make” some of them reply that they only need to make a couple of thousand dollars – every dollar amount given is in 4 figures. 4 FIGURES? Really? Is that really all of the money you need in a year? After taking a deeper dive with questions, I find the problem is they have a limiting belief that to make a 6 figure income or more requires a lot more time and a lot more work than they are already doing. This is just not true – it’s a myth. And I get it – they are already working too hard! They are in OVERWHELM! Working more hours is the last thing they are interested in because they are already working way too many hours!! As you know, I travel a lot and I go to many events. I see so many ways successful business owners market and sell their expertise, products, and services. There are so many things you can do in your business to increase your income without adding more work to your overflowing schedule. I’m sharing ideas and strategies here today. So, listen to the video to learn why “You Have to Work Really Hard to Make a Lot of Money” is a MYTH! There are so many ways I can help you stop struggling! What are you waiting for? If you are ready to finally Jumpstart Your Business; if you are ready to get expert advice and guidance on what to do to get out of overwhelm and start making the money you know you deserve, I encourage you to schedule a strategy session with me! And it’s FREE! Just go to askkat.biz – you’ll need to fill out a few questions (so we can maximize the time you have with me on this session). You’ll be taken to my calendar so you can grab a date/time on my schedule for us to talk. You may not know whether you have your ducks in a row and I have the solution for that!

This is something I hear from entrepreneurs and business owners frequently. “I need to make more money in my business right now.”

Back in 2010, 5 years into my business, I had made a lot of high priced investments in my business by that point on coaching, coaches, business trips and workshops, etc. I found myself really “tapped out” to say the least.

I was super scared and not even sure of what but I knew that I couldn’t pay all my bills. It was the month before my 40th birthday and I’d never been in that position before of not being able to pay all my bills. It was scary.

ways to make money

Calculator, bill, pen and cash against a white background

I remember, as I sat cross legged on my carpeted office floor, with all my bills surrounding me on the floor, I cried, wondering which bills I shouldn’t pay this month and which I should. Which companies it would matter and which I could hold off.

My live-in boyfriend at the time was pretty scared too because he didn’t make enough to support my business and lifestyle too. In fact, I think this moment is what played a big part in him making the decision to break up with me the month following. He had an employee mindset and was used to regular paychecks coming in each month whereas I was used to the roller coaster cash flow of an entrepreneur lifestyle.

I still didn’t rationalize it well however as I normally do and how I do now so I’m sure if he saw me scared, it meant devastation for us in his eyes, whereas deep down, I do always know that “it will work out in the end”. But I’m sure I didn’t show it.

So, I had to make a few changes. I took a very close look at my monthly and annual expenses and saw that I could literally cut out $1000 per month of unnecessary expenses or expenses that I could temporarily cut out until I had more consistent revenue coming in; things that weren’t critical to the marketing and sales activities of my business (because I desperately needed those still – you don’t want to cut this!).

Luckily, I don’t have to worry so much about the monthly bills now as I’m making a very good, consistent income. It can always be better and I’m constantly marketing more to build on what I make now. But, because I’ve set my business up for ongoing revenue streams, the right business models and rates, a ton of marketing to reach an expansive amount of prospects each month and I’ve automated, systematized or delegated the majority of it… l can enjoy a less stressed life.

This is what I want for you too! I can show you how to make a LOT more money doing what you love in your business, that’s for sure.

Let’s face it, making more money in your business is a very important thing to focus on. However, it’s not only about making money that can help you “make more money” in your business.

There are two other ways more money can go into your pocketbook, or “stay” in your pocketbook each month if you take a few moments to see what you can do to maximize them.

1. Earn Cash Back Rewards when you buy things!

  • Do you have a credit card that gives you cash back or reward points you can use to buy things with or use for hotel stays, etc.? If not, get one!
  • Do you use Ebates when you shop online? If not, get it, it’s free! Then on most websites you shop on online, you engage the Ebates link when you’re there (it’s easy to do) and you can earn anywhere from 1-15% cash back on each purchase!
    • I’ve earned almost $200 this year by doing nothing special more than I would, just shop online like I would anyway.
    • Here’s my affiliate link – you make money and so do I when you join!  https://www.ebates.com/r/KATRIN7687
  • Do you create profiles when you shop on sites like Southwest.com and Hotels.com? If not, make sure you do. Don’t just book your travel without using such tools because not only could you SAVE money on the reservations, but you can also earn free nights and free flights. I earn 2-4 free one way flights each year and earn 1-2 free hotel nights each year too!

2. Save money on things that you’re spending on – do an audit of your monthly expenses!

  • Are you still using those memberships that you have and are paying monthly on?
  • What about the software or online services you may be paying monthly on?
  • And check your personal household expenses too, chances are you could go without cable, DirectTV or Dish and just use Netflix, or the opposite might be true depending on your TV watching habits.
  • Evaluate coaching programs, groups, memberships that you signed up for, for professional development. Many of them may be totally worth the investment but don’t continue to pay for something you’re not using. Check the agreement and get out of it if you can and it’s not directly helping you.

See how you can change the course of your income today by taking action on a few of these that make sense for you!

Then to ramp up your revenues and jumpstart your business, you want to sign up to speak with me or attend one of my live events! These are your fastest paths to learning what YOU need to do to tweak what you’re doing in your business to make more money.

You can also check out a whole host of my do-it-yourself products, programs and even free video tips and resources, but that’s the slower way to get where you want to go.

Either way, take action today! You deserve a less stressful, more profitable business and life as soon as possible!

speaker success bootcampHave you heard about my Speaker Training event coming up in Sacramento, starting July 21st? You’ll see all of the information about my “Speaker Success Bootcamp” when you go to my LiveBigEvents.com website. This training is LIVE and in person and is packed with the information you need to be a more successful speaker, whether you are new to speaking or are currently a speaker. Special Valuable Bonuses included in the VIP Package!!

Have you been trying to get yourself some speaking opportunities (I call them gigs) but you’re not having the best of luck getting booked?

Are you wondering how becoming a speaker will generate more business for you or why it’s such an important marketing strategy?

Well, I’ll tell you; I get most of my coaching clients and even most of my paying customers for other products and programs from speaking gigs. Sometimes they hear me speak in person at a conference or business event. Sometimes they hear me speak over the phone on a teleclass or webinar. Either way, being a speaker allows me to be the expert in my industry or on my topic. It brings credibility to what I do, who I am and it allows people to experience me quicker than if there were to just read a page or two on my website.

speakingWhen people get to hear you or watch you for a longer period of time than just a quick hello or introduction it gives them more of a sense of what you do, how you can help them and they can make a more informed decision on if or how they want to work with you. I highly recommend adding speaking to your overall marketing strategies if you’re a small business owner.

When people hear your speak, it gives them a better sense of what you do and how you can help them. Click To Tweet

In fact, I have a speaker training course on this topic because all my coaching clients need to learn what to do to become a speaker.

The following is that 6 Step Process.

  • Step 1: Determine WHO you’ll talk to and what do they want to hear. Ask yourself “What are you an expert in? or Who is your target market and where will we find groups of them? What do they care about exactly that relates somewhat to what you do?“ Do a search on Google, meetup.com, look for associations or other organizations with events, conferences and even online events and telesummits!
  • Step 2: Develop your speaking topics and speaker sheet. It’s important to BE PREPARED for speaking opportunities at all times if you expect to get any. You want to have a professional speaker sheet ready to email someone who wants to book you that includes your topics, descriptions, bullets of what they’ll learn, your bio, picture and contact information at the very least. Having a video of yourself on stage is also good.
  • Step 3: Strategize on where to get gigs. You’ll need to build a list of potential events, organizations or meetings that you can speak for locally, nationally and virtually. There are easy ways to find places but you need to do your due diligence if you want to get booked. Then you could delegate the contacting of those people and places but it’s not always that easy to find someone who really understands what to ask or say to do this, trust me, I’ve tried; I find that I’m always the best person to look for and contact people to get myself booked.
  • Step 4: Craft your presentations. It’s important to create your speaking presentations so that they are educational, informative, memorable and they make the audience take the action you want them to take at the end. Whether you’re making a sales pitch at the end or not, how you design your talk is crucial to your success, please don’t wing this.
  • Step 5: Design your accompanying marketing materials. Often times you’ll want handouts, flyers, order forms or table display materials for when you attend a live speaking event (as well as virtual – what to do online). Again, if you’re not prepared with these things then you’ll most likely waste your time doing the speaking in the first place. One thing I like to suggest when speaking to a group of people who aren’t that familiar with you is to have and make an “Easy YES Offer”. This is something low priced and easy for someone to buy that gives them a ‘taste’ of what you offer to ‘try you out’.
  • Step 6: Following up after a speaking gig. Most speakers don’t do this well at all and it could be more important than what you do AT the event itself. Developing a kick-butt follow up plan for after an event will provide ongoing lead generation and sales. Most of my sales come in the follow up process but don’t rely only on email marketing these days, you have to do phone calling, direct mail and even connect with prospects on social media sites too as they may only see one of these four attempts!

Hopefully this gives you some idea on what to get started doing to jumpstart yourself as a speaker.

Remember though, speaking is just ONE type of marketing strategy that you may want to do in your small business. Generally, you need to do 5-15 marketing strategies every month in order to maximize your potential.

Are you wondering WHERE YOU STAND in your marketing…

Biz Quiz Button-TakeBizQuiz

Are you ready to make money from speaking? I’m sharing information about what you need to have ready to go for any opportunity.

Speaking is one of the least expensive, most effective marketing strategies you can do in your business. If you’re already speaking then great, what I’m sharing in this article could be a good reminder for you.

speakingIf you are not speaking yet, then why not? Are you afraid of speaking or getting in front of an audience? Are you unsure of what to speak about or to whom or saying to yourself “who would care about what I have to say?”

Regardless of what you do in business you may want to consider speaking. Speaking allows you to be the expert in front of your prospects and peers. It gives you instant credibility and trust with the audience. And it speeds up the buying process when someone likes, trusts and is able to connect with you personally.

Speaking allows you to be the expert in front of your prospects and peers. Click To Tweet

One of the biggest mistakes I see many speakers making however, is that they are rarely ever prepared for opportunities that may arise at any time.

Being prepared as a speaker will get you into more doors, position yourself as a professional to the people booking you to speak and it will allow you less stress and freedom to take advantage of all kinds of opportunities whenever they come up.

Here are a few things you want to make sure you have prepared:

  1. Professional speaker sheet – with your bio and/or introduction and your talk title and description at the very least. You can add references, additional talk descriptions, testimonials and places you’ve spoken too if you like and you have.
  2. Professional head shot – easily downloadable from your website or emailable
  3. One to five (max) talk topics and descriptions – you can have more than one if it makes sense for your business and what you speak on are all complimentary to some extent. If you’re just starting out, start with one signature talk however to make your life easier.
  4. Cover letter or email prewritten and ready to go – include all attachments and information someone would need to decide whether they want to book you as a speaker or guest
  5. Page on your website talking about you as a speaker – include your talk titles, places you’ve spoken, videos of you speaking and more information someone looking for a speaker could download easily on their own.
  6. Speaker videos – make sure you have at least one video of you speaking on stage or in front of a group; many events and bookers won’t even consider you without this these days.

Choosing the right signature talk you’d think is the easy part, however it can be the most crucial part of this whole equation, especially if you want to monetize your talk and your time.

You need to prepare what you’ll talk on based on what action you ultimately want the audience to take with you. Do you want them to sign up for your free gift or newsletter? Buy your book or product? Register for your event?

It’s important that you reverse engineer your talk based on what you want the audience to buy or sign up for. This is crucial and another big mistake I see many speakers making. They give a great talk then tag on a pitch to sell something totally different to the end and it feels like a sales pitch. Not good.
