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 know lots of people suggest you should be blogging if you’re not already, right? They also say you should post something on your blog at least 3 times a week, right?

blog bloggingIt is a really great strategy to use in your marketing but it’s ONLY ONE of the tens of strategies you really SHOULD be doing every month. You just need to find the easiest way to do more of them faster or in more of an automated way.

So here are some things you’ll want to know about blogging whether you’re doing it or not and then I’m happy to share with you too later on how to automate it more so it’s not taking too much of your time. Because the reality is that just the act of blogging alone won’t really bring in a lot of clients.

You have to have your blogging woven in and out of multiple marketing strategies, your website, follow up, social media and more in order for it to work as an income generator.

It does do many things for you however regardless, such as:

  • #1. You will engage your readers and prospects into conversations and action.
  • #2. You will build a community of followers, fans and supporters.
  • #3. You will be in more places at one time expanding your reach globally.
  • #4. You will prove yourself as an expert.
  • #5. You will reach people who don’t want to receive your emails perhaps; some people don’t want to read emails and newsletters, they prefer to read quick blog posts.
  • #6. You will increase your sales as more people read your articles and learn to like and trust you.
  • #7. You can manage it easily and quickly if you have the right systems in place!

What do you need to do though ON your blog to make sure it’s successful?

  • You must have an opt in box in addition to blog subscription option;
  • You should allow comments to encourage reader interaction;
  • You should have videos of yourself for more interaction;
  • You could highlight one of your products or services to get them to click over to your site and for more info;
  • You can put all kinds of ‘widgets’ on your blog to attract more attention, provide more interaction and even build a revenue stream.

How to know what to post and say on your blog to keep the content fresh?

–>> Watch my emails and my blog posts; I share tips all the time about content generation!

In the meantime, this is just ONE of the hundreds of things you could be doing to attract more clients and generate more income for yourself so don’t get too caught up with the management of it on a day to day basis, just get something going for now and be relatively active to start.

blog marketing If you are ready to get serious about your business and put a real marketing and business Action Plan into place and learn EXACTLY how all of these multiple marketing strategies will be implemented into your business either by you or someone you outsource to…. I highly encourage you to sign up to talk with me in one of my complimentary JumpStart Your Business Strategy Sessions!

These strategy sessions can really help you get more clarity and focus in your business so you can then turn around and become more profitable pretty quickly.

Find out how these work and how you can get one of these limited spots at www.AskKat.biz.

Oh and you don’t have to have your entire business already going yet, you just have to have the desire to have your own business or some ideas and I guarantee I can help pull it out of you!

P.P.S. 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!  

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.

I’d love to be able to help you with your strategy, your marketing, or whatever is challenging you in your business!. If you’d like to schedule time to talk with me, just go to katrinasawa.com/strategysession/ and fill out the form to schedule a FREE strategy session with me.

Today I want to share with you my 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level.  These are important keys to get started in business, so if you are a brand new biz owner, this is for you too!

Have things become stagnant in your business?  Many people come to me with this problem. Many have been in business for a number of years and they’ve made a certain amount of money, but then they are STUCK!  They don’t know what to change; is it their business model or structure?  Maybe it’s their marketing?  They don’t know what they don’t know.  They haven’t experienced a higher level in their business yet.  They can’t see what to implement, add or delete to their marketing and strategy to take their business the next level.  These are things I see a lot when people are wanting to go BIGGER!

4 keys to taking your business to the next levelI want to briefly cover 4 Keys to Taking your Business to the Next Level, to help you get started thinking about each of these steps. And, if you would like to talk about these  with me further, I’ll share with you how to get a complementary call with me.

So here they are – My 4 Keys to Taking Your Business to the Next Level:

  1. Know your Vision – Understand your VISION and get help to see what else is possible. You know there’s a bigger level but you probably need guidance from someone who’s been there.
  2. Strategy – The strategy that has been working for you for the past few years may no longer be working – you may need to shift your strategy and your mindset.
  3. Support – it’s not just about support for your business – yes, those things are great. But you might need some attention in your personal life too.
  4. Confidence – If you don’t have the confidence to go BIGGER – whatever your big VISION is, it’s probably not going to happen. Sometimes, that takes help and work.

This particular topic has arisen for me this week because of my own life and situation with my business. I’m not an expert in life changes, merely a participant and observer. I do however coach women entrepreneurs how to manage being overwhelmed in their business, how to create better and more effective systems, processes, marketing and teams to take away much of their overwhelm.

However today I thought I would just talk about it openly and honestly from one woman to another (as I know most of you who read this are women).

First of all, we can be overwhelmed with our business, our to-do lists, our email, our prospecting and follow up – so much so that none of it gets done right? Ever been there? So stuck on what to do that you can’t do anything productive at all?
