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!

Most people don’t do enough follow up and those people are missing out on Thousands and Thousands of Dollars! You need to start learning a system to improve your Follow up and to attract more people from the networking events you attend.

4 Ways to follow up Events & Speaking GigsIf you are going to spend time at a networking event, if you speak at a networking event, or if you are an exhibitor or a sponsor at a networking event and you have a display table, you have to make the effort to maximize your return of your investment of time and money to be at that event. You want to capture as many leads as possible.

I’m listing these types of LEADS into 3 categories as follows:

  • Hot Leads – you want to capture as many HOT leads as possible. You want to talk with the 3 or 4 people who want to book you for a speaking event or hire you. Follow up with them FIRST!
  • Warm Leads – these are the people who will likely buy from you or book you as a speaker within the next 6 months to a year.
  • Cold Leads – are the ones who might start watching for your emails and learning from you. Something in their life may shift and they will want to hire you. This can take from 1 to 5 years or more to convert these prospects into buyers.

When following up, you CANNOT rely solely on your email marketing these days. Some people think they only have to put these prospects on an email list. They are WRONG and you have to be careful not to spam people – get more information on this in the video. You need to start putting your mailing address on your business card as well as your phone number, your email list and website information. This is why…

There are 4 Methods of Follow Up:

  • Email – your digital newsletter and other email communication that relates specifically to them.
  • Phone – remind them you sent an email with a freebie they were looking for.
  • Direct Mail – send them a note that says, “It was great to meet you, let’s have a phone conversation so I can learn more about you.”
  • Social Media – send a message to them to check their email for what you sent to them.

You have to approach your follow up marketing in different ways. Why? Because people are busy, they are as busy as you are! So make sure you are following up in those 4 different ways after every event. Get your system organized NOW!

Check out the video below for more detail about these 4 strategies to Follow Up From Live Events & Speaking Gigs!

I’m sharing with you today some quick business tips about Tradeshows and doing Table Displays at Expos and Events.

tradeshows - make money - get leadsThese are tips that will help you at tradeshows, expos, and events, whether you have 20 people attending and you have a table in the room or whether you are doing a full conference expo and there are rows of vendors.

I’ve been talking to a few of my clients on this specific topic and I’ve found that they are unprepared for the events they have coming up.  Because I’ve been working on this with them, I wanted to share tips with you!

There are SO many things to think about doing – BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER an Event.

 BEFORE THE EVENT:

  • See if there is a Facebook, LinkedIn or Google + Page for the event. Start networking before the event.  Start building relationships in advance.

DURING THE EVENT:

  • Make sure you have a strategy to get in front of as many people as possible.  HINT: Some of the Vendors might need you too!

AFTER THE EVENT:

  • There is SO MUCH follow up to do after the event! I have a strategy for you for that!

 

Check out the video below for more detail about these strategies to Make More Money & Get Leads from Tradeshows!

Are You Ready to jumpstart your business in a BIG WAY? Join me at one of my live events in 2016 – next one is in Novemeber! Go to www.LiveBigEvents.com for dates and info!  

Are you an entrepreneur who’s trying to build your email list? Are you unsure of what to do to make that happen FASTER? Well if this is you, then check out this post! 

I’ve been an entrepreneur since 2002. I’ve taken numerous courses and trainings, hired mentors, been in masterminds, etc. to upwards of $170,000 in investments in my business.

One of the many marketing and lead generation strategies I learned along the way that I still do today, 8 years later is to hold teleclasses & webinars live just about every single month.

I hope you realize how important speaking can be to YOUR business too. And speaking in this way can catapult your business tremendously in many ways. Let me share how… 

  • First of all, holding your own teleclasses & webinars gets you in front of dozens if not hundreds of potential prospects all at one time therefore extremely leveraging your time
  • It allows you the opportunity in many cases to make an offer from the platform you’re on due to the increased like-trust-connect factor of your participants
  • When you market these types of calls and presentations you have the opportunity to reach potential prospects around the world, not just in your local area
  • Teleclasses & webinars (if done well and include the right content) can increase your visibility and exposure on your online platforms and social media as well as position you more as an expert in your field

Why the majority of entrepreneurs DO NOT HOLD THEIR OWN Teleclasses & Webinars:

  • Fear of the unknown
  • Not sure what to say or how to present in that manner or any manner if they’re not speaking much already
  • Apprehensive of the technology needs required to hold such presentations
  • Not sure how to get people to attend (hence market the presentation)
  • Lack of confidence that anyone would want to listen to you anyway

How can you get over these issues and challenges if this is you?

  • You have to ask for support and guidance first of all, this type of marketing strategy is SIMPLE for those of us who do it and can show anyone HOW pretty quickly IF YOU ASK
  • You commit to doing it and just push through
  • You get some support around what to say during your presentation and how to present in a way that makes people want to stick around the listen in the whole time
  • You get some support and guidance around how to present an offer, even if it’s a free offer or call you want participants to take care of
  • You realize quickly how much this could grow your business if you just start doing it

Speaking in your business through these online portholes so to speak can work if you do a few things right:

  • First, plot out the topics you could cover in such a manner
  • Make sure those topics are what your target prospects want to hear more about by possibly surveying them or asking
  • Next, plot out the dates and times you will hold your events and choose which options are right for you – teleclasses, webinars, Google Hangouts, other?
  • Write out the topic description and come up with a hooky title (DO NOT DEVELOP THE ENTIRE PRESENTATION AT THIS TIME!)
  • Thirdly, learn a little about the technology and what you’ll need to effectively host your own teleclass or webinar and how you will present it online for prospects to enroll in your class and get on your email list in the process
  • Next, get up a registration page and process in place to take registrations, getting people on your list
  • Fourth, start marketing the event anywhere and everywhere you can think of – online and offline (see me for a full marketing plan if you aren’t sure!)
  • And finally, now you build out your content, once you know people are coming and you need to deliver – there is a specific way to lay out your content, putting certain things in the intro, the middle and the close or you may not see people stick around until the end or take the action you want them to take.
  • Oh and don’t forget to REMIND attendees to come to the call! People always forget that step!

Here’s a link to go listen in to a free call I did on the topic of Jumpstarting Yourself as a Dynamic Speaker which will help you get more comfortable speaking in general or developing your talk or presentation – feel free to go listen into that now!

Then this video shares a some juicy tips on how to make more sales from the stage or at least build your list from your speaking gigs but you can apply this to teleclasses and webinars also. Enjoy!

Are you a speaker who doesn’t seem to convert a lot of people from your audiences either into a sale or onto your email list? Are you unsure of what to do when following up? Well if this is you, then watch this video!

 

I’ve been speaking for over 14 years in my own business and for other jobs that I’ve held as well and I learn more every year watching speakers do their thing on stage. I’ve also taken numerous speaking courses and trainings to upwards of $70,000 in investments in my business since I realize that speaking is the #1 very best way to capture new clients.

I hope you realize how important speaking can be to YOUR business too. And following up from speaking gigs and other events! It’s crucial!

Speaking in your business will:

  • Increase your visibility, credibility and your confidence
  • Get you in front of dozens if not hundreds of potential prospects all at one time therefore extremely leveraging your time
  • Allow you the opportunity in many cases to make an offer from the stage and get paid big time in the back of the room

If you’re already speaking you know this but is it really working for you to create big income flows for you? If not, what can you do to change that?

If you’re not speaking yet there are a few things you need to do to prepare first before you go just winging it out there on stage. Please don’t do that without a little direction.

Here’s a link to go listen in to a free call I did on the topic of Jumpstarting Yourself as a Dynamic Speaker – feel free to go listen into that now!

Then this video shares a some juicy tips on how to make more sales from the stage or at least build your list from your speaking gigs.
