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.

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!

Let me dispel one of the biggest Myths that you’ve been lead to believe from others –>  “It’s Not Easy to Make Money and Grow My Business”.

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! Take my new Jumpstart Your Biz Quiz. Just go to JumpstartYourBizQuiz.com to get started. Be honest with yourself when answering. It’s a great little assessment for you to see where you are in your business.

After you finish the Quiz, you can decide if it’s time to talk with me.

Here’s To Your Success!

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!
