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!

Today I’m super excited to give you another Video Biz Tip – it’s all about plotting out your Marketing Calendar!

Are you an entrepreneur who is not sure what you should be doing every month or every week? This post and the video below is a snapshot for those of you who are not sure how you should be spending your time or if you are outside of your office and in front of others enough to promote yourself and your business. This is one of the topics we cover in my Live Big Mastermind and at my Live Events, like we just did at my “Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend” event a few days ago, see the example in the video. Just remember to plot your marketing calendar and BE CONSISTENT! Consistency is the KEY in a good marketing strategy.

marketing calendarAre you blogging consistently? What about Facebook LIVE videos – are you using this tool to reach the people who want to hear your message? If not, you should be. What about Networking? What events did you have planned for the month? And are you calendaring your Follow-Up after the networking events? If not, you need to start doing that. There’s profit in your follow-up. If you don’t know what to do, I have a system of techniques, templates, and scripts – everything you need to create your own Follow Up system that WORKS!

The video below gives an example of a monthly marketing calendar with detailed explanation.

Check out the video below for more tips on “What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

“What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

This example is generic. I help my clients customize their marketing calendar that is specific to their business.

There are so many ways you can engage with me personally, such as my LIVE Events, my Live Big Mastermind program, and coaching calls. I’m happy to do a one-time coaching call with you to get you on the right track, if you are not ready to dive into a coaching program.

You can also learn what you should be doing on specific parts of your marketing via my recordings and trainings. My “Marketing Basics for Consistent Cash Flow” is an amazing webinar series. It’s a simple, indepth training on the Top 10 Marketing Strategies and it’s affordably priced. You can find it at LiveBigEvents.com and look for the Webinar on the top navigation window on that page.

I’m also launching the Entrepreneur Training Academy very soon so watch for the announcement about that in your inbox or on Social Media. It’s a 6 month program for entrepreneurs to teach you everything you need to know, from A to Z, on how to start, market, and grow your business to make it a consistent, revenue generating business.

Here’s to Your Success!

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!

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!  

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!

Video Biz Tip: Make More Money & Get Leads from Tradeshows!

My Tradeshow Networking Toolkit outlines everything you need to know! I highly recommend it because there are so many things you are probably NOT doing that you NEED to do to maximize your ROI from your Tradeshow Displays and Exhibitor/Vendor Tables at Events. Just go to Jumpstartyourmarketing.com/products/tradeshow to see all of the benefits you receive.

Have you got stacks of these around YOUR office?

Massive networking and consistent, relationship marketing follow up are the two main things that I did from day one, 12 years ago, (and still do!) to build a very successful and profitable business.

If you are attending networking events at least a couple times a month or more and/or speaking or being an exhibitor at live events then I would venture to guess that you are NOT doing enough follow up. NO ONE DOES!

You are most likely missing out on thousands of dollars every single month due to your lack of follow up (and following up in many different ways too, not just one or two). I find (and so do many of my clients who are using my Follow Up System) that the majority of sales (MAJORITY!!) I make from each event I attend happen in the follow up process! Yes, it’s true.

What I’ve also found though is that entrepreneurs just won’t take the time to do their follow up (the way it needs to be done). They/YOU just don’t take the time.

Then you wonder what happened and why didn’t you get any business? Or you think to yourself “boy, networking doesn’t work”. When it does work BUT you have to know how to ‘work it’. And you can still do that without being pushy or annoying….I do it all the time and so do my coaching clients.

So, if this is one area you KNOW you need help with and you know you need a system for so it will actually get done or delegated to be done….then please go grab my Follow Up System.

I can’t express enough how this will help you totally transform your business and your revenues. In it I teach you a lot more than just follow up too but it’s all in one convenient package to learn how to jumpstart your business and follow up right now, this could make a difference for you IMMEDIATELY in your sales. Plus you get a ton of other bonuses too this week when you buy it!

Have a great week!
