Bright Shiny Object Syndrome is anything that keeps you from focusing on your immediate goals and the tasks that need to be completed to reach your goals.

Today I want to talk to you about Bright Shiny Object Syndrome. It’s a serious problem that many people deal with, even me sometimes.

Let me give you a real-world example of what I’m talking about. Are you a Starter but not a Finisher? Do you get GREAT IDEAS and start projects only to lose your momentum for what you started because you are excited about the next new project? Do you jump from idea to idea without finishing your projects? Once the project is finished, do you leave it without monetizing it? If you’ve answered yes, you are someone who is afflicted with Bright Shiny Object Syndrome.

Many people get distracted and invest their time and money in the newest training they’ve heard about. There’s nothing wrong with investing in yourself and learning new skills. The problem occurs when you are investing in something that will not help you where your business is now. Many people lose their focus, invest in training, and then lose interest in that because it’s doing nothing to generate income at the time they invested in it.

Sure, things come up and roadblocks can get in the way of your progress in reaching your goals. But don’t let that lead to procrastination in working on the things you really need to get done! SQUIRREL!

Today’s video tip is about Getting More Things Done.

It’s a topic that many entrepreneurs struggle with as well as my mastermind clients.  How do I Get It All Done!  We all have to become more organized and more efficient with our time management so we CAN  do more to reach more prospects to ultimately make more money.

I have tips for you today and a webinar you can watch if you are interested in plotting your activities out in a marketing calendar – something I highly advise. Keeping your calendar up to date with the marketing tasks you need to do each day, your business appointments, your networking events and even your personal appointments is ONE of the BEST things you can do to stay organized and create space.

As I’ve said before, I use a Google Calendar. It’s free and if you have a Gmail account, you have access to Google Calendar as well as other Google products like YouTube and Google Drive. The great thing about Google Drive is that you can store documents, images and a variety of info there in folders that you can share with your team or assistant. So my team can go into my Google Drive to pull info they need to do the work I need them to do. Google Calendar is great because you can easily block time for your business appointments, your personal appointments and you can color code all of your appointments. You can easily see where you are spending your time in a week, month or year view.

Another problem may be that you don’t know where you can be more efficient. You may need someone who IS very organized and efficient with their time to take a look at what you are doing and make recommendations for automating some of the activities that are burning up your time. This person should be more tech savvy than you so they can recommend systems to save you time. For example, over time I was able to help one of my mastermind clients save eight hours a week – that’s a full working day. That’s HUGE!

Today’s Tip is about Time Management – Entrepreneurs MUST be good at it to Grow Their Business

I recently gave everyone a tip about accountability where I talked a little about Google Calendar and time blocking, but I’m finding there are many entrepreneurs who could do a better job at keeping track of their time. Here’s what I mean by that.

I’ve made several appointments with business owners; a few were my clients but most of them were not my clients, where the other person missed our appointment! Why? Because they hadn’t noted it correctly in whatever system they are using or they simply failed to make a note of the appointment.

This is a problem that can lead to a huge problem for you, the entrepreneur. If you are continuing to miss appointments, not getting things done, or not keeping track of your time, these issues can keep you from moving forward in growing your business.

I want to encourage you to do whatever you need to so you can be sure to get the appointments you make noted correctly on your calendar–so you can keep them. Slow down long enough to note your appointments as you make them into your calendar. And, a great way to better manage what you are doing is to review your calendar each evening so you will know what your priorities are when you wake up. Being able to get going on what’s most important each morning is critical to your success.

Prioritizing Your Time for Success

 

Screen Shot 2015-08-07 at 12.52.11 PMOne of the biggest things that stops entrepreneurs from seeing more success and profits in your business is the lack of time management. It’s not easy to figure out how to prioritize your to do’s, tasks and time in order to get what needs to be done, done and in a timely manner.

It’s also not easy to figure out always what to do in your marketing in order to see the best return on investment, right?

I get it, these are things I have to work on pretty early on with all my clients so they don’t waste more time and money.

It’s important to do things “in order of importance” for your goals and your business. That means, if your goal is to really generate income for yourself right now then you must focus on revenue generating activities pretty much 100% of the time. So, whatever will bring in more leads, build your list, drive people to phone calls with you, drive to your functional website to buy or bring in referrals.

Here are 4 steps to take to better prioritize your time:

  1. Strategize – First you want to strategize on what ARE the most important tasks or activities for you to be doing. Ask a coach if you aren’t sure or you’ll waste more time and money I promise you.
  2. Calendarize – Get a really good calendar system to plot out your to dos. I love Google Calendar, you can color coordinate all your to dos, easily move them around and even have your assistant or team see what you’re doing or schedule things for you for more efficiency.
  3. Systematize – Learn what tasks can be turned into a system, or pulled out of your head and written down. I love to develop templates for various things such as follow up emails, new connection messages for social media, templates for reaching out for speaking gigs and so much more!
  4. Realize – Now that you have more systems and templates, realize what tasks and things can be delegated to an assistant. I can almost promise you that if you delegate the right tasks (sooner than later), especially revenue producing tasks, that you will see bigger profits faster.

What Some Of Kat’s Clients Say:

Before I met Katrina, I was a personal trainer/ group fitness instructor in Manhattan running around like a madwoman all day long. By the time I came home I had just about enough energy to stare at the wall and drool. I knew I couldn’t go on like this forever. And I was planning on having a child, so my time for running around was about to be, well, cut out completely. How was I going to make more money than I was making, and work less??? I had no idea, and I am so fortunate that I stumbled into Katrina Sawa! She spelled out exactly what I needed to do, step by step, and supported me along the way. Before I knew it, I had launched my first online fitness program, and it was successful! Before I met Katrina, I would never have thought I could do this, but she prompted me to keep taking steps, whether I thought I could or not! I now run fun and effective online fitness programs regularly and end up helping many more people in much less time! And I have plenty of time to spend with my son :)~Miranda Zukowski, The Fitness Coach for Entrepreneurs

 

“I have recently had the absolute pleasure to work with Katrina Sawa to breathe some new life into our marketing and sales focus.  Wow!!  What a difference just even four months so far makes!  In that four months, between our 1 on 1 strategy calls and an amazingly beneficial ½ day planning session, we were really able to map out the direction that we wanted to go.  The ½ day session was intense and so incredibly productive, the ideas and thoughts just seemed to come forward effortlessly for Kat who was focused and on point with what we wanted to accomplish. Katrina was able to take a peek into our business life and help us work smarter, not harder!  Even right down to simplifying and updating our order taking / accounting processes, getting everything into one place!  Talk about a timesaver! I sincerely feel much more confident now with our efforts both online and offline in our marketing and how we can easily generate leads through multiple strategies we have implemented because now we know how to do it all!  We are  even delegating too! Thank you Katrina for your top notch and invaluable services!” ~ Lisa Lemus, (formerly with) AP Products

 

Katrina is a master at internet marketing. It was Katrina that introduce me to having a business that can be global and mobile. She gave me the tools to launch and build my online empire and create my very first tele-seminar that feature me interviewing top 6 & 7 figure women entrepreneurs including Kat the Kat-alyst herself.  All of this has allowed me to receive and sell $10,000 coaching program within a week. I would not be the entrepreneur I AM today if it weren’t for my coaching session and connection with Katrina. I highly recommend working with her if you are serious about becoming successful and abundantly prosperous in your life. ~Dorris Burch

P.P.S.  Ready to jumpstart your business in a BIG WAY? You probably need to be doing a LOT more marketing and sales – online and offline. I recommend you attend my next Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit, I promise this will be the most informative, useful business seminar you attend all year. Go check out what it’s all about and when:  www.LiveBigEvents.com

 

This year I plan on doing the opposite of what a lot of business owners are doing. I plan on simplifying my business. 

You see, a couple years ago I was trying to grow my business and a mentor told me to create this new product and this new program and this new service. And after a year or so of doing all of that and pretty much launching something new every other month or so, what do you think happened?

You’d think I would have made oodles and oodles more money, but sadly, that did not happen. The revenue came in small chunks and because I had so many different ways to buy or different ways to learn (i.e.: products, programs, services) my customers and prospects were confused and never knew which thing to sign up for so attendance in many of these new programs was not as high as I’d hoped.

 

Then what do you suppose happened? Yep, I got tired. Tired of working so hard to sell The Next Big Thing. Tired of constantly trying to reinvent a new thing that I thought people would want to buy.

When times were tough and the market was down, it seemed like this was the right thing to do; keep trying to find the thing that people would buy. But it wasn’t.

The best thing I could have done is to simplify what I offer.  Simplifying is my focus this year. 

I’m super clear on what I’m offering. how to buy it or sign up for it AND I don’t have to kill myself in the process. You see, what matters most to your prospects and customers is not that you have huge amounts of things to offer them but you have the “right” thing that they “need & want”. what is going to make them want to buy from you.

Here are a few tips on how to simplify in YOUR business:

  1. First off, figure out what your ideal clients and customers really want. Learn what matters most to them about what you offer rather than what you think they need or should buy. They will only invest in what they see they need and want, not necessarily what you think they need.
  1. Next, determine all the different ways you could offer those things to them. Could you develop a live workshop or virtual group training rather than deliver the information one-on-one? Could you design or develop a product, program or something that they could buy without any involvement of you at all after it’s completed? Figure out how your ideal client or customer wants the information, training or how they need your product delivered and make sure you offer it to them in their preferred manner, not necessarily the way you want to deliver it. I talk to prospects a lot initially about their learning styles and suggest products and services that I have to them based on how they want to learn or digest the information.
  2. Choose price points that are realistically in the range your ideal clients and customers would typically invest in with a little bit of stretching beyond that if you want so you have room to negotiate or offer special deals. Just make sure you also take a look at your overall product/program mix so that you do have some lower level offerings as well as some higher level offerings. If you desire to make a certain level in revenue this year then you want to make sure you have enough opportunity to sell enough things so crunch the numbers on what you’re selling verses how many you potentially think you could sell to make sure you can hit your goals.
  3. Finally, you won’t make anywhere near the amount of sales that you want if you don’t do enough marketing. Marketing is a huge term, it encompasses so many things and not all marketing strategies are good for all types of business owners so you do have to be careful which you embrace and implement. You want to give each strategy a fair trial period before you decide it doesn’t work but first you need to start out with a very smart, effective and consistent marketing plan. Your marketing could be simplified as well. There are so many ways to automate, systematize and delegate your lead generation, marketing and follow up tasks; this is something to really focus on if you want better results but you want to stop working so hard!

It’s not too late to simplify your business! You WILL gain almost instant focus and revenue. If you need help in simplifying your business products, services, or marketing then let’s schedule a complimentary strategy session and get some CLARITY!

Have you adopted some business and marketing best practices?  One way to make sure you see better results is to finally develop a clear and consistent marketing strategy in your business.

MARKETING DOES NOT HAVE TO COST MONEY!

In fact, most of the Relationship Marketing that I do in my business and that I teach my coaching clients is of no cost to you. Many small business owners however believe proper marketing has to cost money so they just don’t even pay attention to do figuring out what to do.

Many small business owners also aren’t sure what to do for marketing or are confused, hearing so many options via free teleclasses, webinars, speakers and the Internet. You could literally learn just about anything you want these days online but that doesn’t mean you know what to do with that information or how to put those things in order of importance to help you market and grow YOUR business!

Instead of sitting in that boat of unsure or overwhelm, it’s time to learn some revenue generating activities that you can do every single day to see bigger monetary results.

Marketing is lead generating activities that bring in the prospects so that you can sell them into your products, programs and services. You won’t be selling a whole lot this year without diligently implementing these marketing and revenue producing activities. Many of them you will want to take on yourself but others you can delegate to a team member in order to reach a much broader or larger number of prospects.

In fact, a quick goal I always give my clients is to reach out to and connect with a minimum of 1000 new potential prospects or referral sources every single month. This can be done in various ways but if you’re only reaching out to a few dozen or couple hundred, more than likely you will not hit your goals.

Here are 3 QUICK Revenue Producing Activities you can do every single day to keep a consistent flow of leads coming into your business! 

  1. Send a personal message to 50 people you don’t know yet on Facebook or LinkedIn with the goal of moving the connection to the telephone for relationship building and to see if or how you can help each other. Do NOT sell in this message or promote anything. But do put your full contact information in the body. If you do this correctly you should see 20-30% response. I consider this online networking and similar to what I would do if I met someone new at a networking event in person.
  2. Make 10 follow up phone calls to connect with people in your database, previous clients for referrals or upsells, prospects for new business, people you just met and more. Have a goal to schedule a get-to-know-ya call as well as you never know, they could become a very good prospect or referral source.
  3. Write a quick, ‘how to’ blog post, article for your blog, or record a quick tip on video. Get that information out via your email newsletter, your blog, social media sites, YouTube and even other article marketing websites who could possibly run your information for free.

These three things are all FREE marketing strategies that you can do today even if you do not have a business yet or a website.

For more information on how to JumpStart your small business with creative ideas and a clear plan to reach your unique target market find out how to talk with me in a complimentary Strategy Session, go fill out the questionnaire at www.AskKat.biz.  Let’s plot out YOUR Big Picture Strategy now to get a jumpstart on your year!  Oh and if you know you could use better and more consistent marketing and sales strategies then join me at my next Jumpstart Your Marketing® & Sales Summit.

Are you frustrated with how little people respond to your social media posts? Are they not sharing your content, events, promotions and pictures?

Well, let’s face it, there are people on social media who are way too salesy on their pages and profiles or posts. Then there are others who do nothing to promote their own business online, which is a big mistake.

However you do want to find a happy medium to how much of which content to share and when online so you look credible, you look like an expert in your field, yet you aren’t annoying and pushy with what you’re promoting.

One of the biggest strategies to get your information shared more on sites like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter or any of the sites really is to just ask.

But you also have to make it easy for the person or people to share it which is where most people fail.

You need to make it very EASY for others to share your content and posts online.

One thing you can do is write the post for them or post what you want them to copy and paste into a post when they do hit the share button. You write it in their voice talking about you, not as if it was coming from you. If you don’t do this, they may not know what to say or HOW to say it and therefore not share something because they can’t do it quickly. People don’t have time to look at an event page, or go to your link or website for information to copy that hey can use. That’s being very unrealistic in your expectations.

Yet I see business owners doing this every single day.

Another don’t is:

  • Don’t tag us in posts that you’re sharing just so they will also be shown on our profiles or pages. That is considered very bad etiquette and in my case will have you unfriended.

What to do instead if you’d like us to share something for you to our followers is this:

  • Do send us a private message with what you’re doing, the links to the pages you’re promoting or whatever info we may need to decide first if we want to share it. Then give us the copy to paste into the post we share including links.

Plain and simple, if you don’t make this easy for us, we won’t do it.

I absolutely LOVE EVENTS! 

I love attending events, I love hosting events, I love training at events, I love learning at events…in fact, I’m at a business and marketing conference right now! I’m in LA this week speaking at one of my mentors Rockstar Marketing Bootcamps. Craig Duswalt puts on a really great show at his events and boy are they a show.

But it’s fun to speak at events, be an exhibitor (which I am this week in LA too) and even attend events even if I’m not speaking or exhibiting.

This is the #1 way that I like to LEARN as an entrepreneur, it’s my learning style.

What’s your learning style?

You see, your learning style plays a BIG part in whether or not you will actually RETAIN the information/knowledge or IMPLEMENT the strategies and ideas.

Many entrepreneurs come to me in fact, either a couple years into their business, just starting out or even very well established. Yet they still aren’t where they want to be – money wise or growth wise. A lot of them come to me AFTER investing in some of the other programs out there, events, coaching programs, buying products, etc. Yet, those ways are not typically how THEY learn best, therefore more often than not they aren’t seeing the results they hoped to achieve. Usually that’s because they either aren’t sure still of HOW to do some of the things OR they just haven’t done them yet, maybe there’s no accountability?

What I’ve found over the years is that most entrepreneurs learn best in a small intimate setting (such as my events – they are around 50 people and NOT multi-speaker, they are all training and experiential) or via one-on-one mentoring. I know 1on1 costs much more but it’s worth it! My event is very reasonably priced and you’ll get so much out of it that you can’t even imagine….

When you attend my Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit this April 9-11, 2015, I KNOW 100% that you’ll get EXACTLY WHAT YOU NEED, no matter where you are in your business. It’s my personal guarantee. Now, what you THINK you need may not actually be what you really need….and I’d urge you to be open to that.

I’ve got over 15 years experience in seeing what business owners are doing from the big picture all the way down to the nitty gritty in their business and how it all flows together (or does not) and then helping you determine exactly where the holes are and where you have more opportunities as well. This is my genius. You have YOUR GENIUS, I have mine and this is mine. Let me help you jumpstart your business FASTER this year!

Come to my event in April! This is actually the LAST TIME I’m going to be hosting this particular event so you don’t want to miss it!

Plus, you want to see more success and profits in your business FASTER don’t you?

I get to the heart of what you need to do so you stop wasting time and money in the wrong places, with the wrong people and wrong things.

Take a look at my video sharing what you can expect when you register TODAY for this event which is just a few short weeks away!

 

“I’ve been to Kat’s events twice because it’s one of the most information-filled events I have ever gone to! Not only do I learn a ton of marketing stuff but she opened my eyes to things I hadn’t even considered previously.Extraordinary experience, extraordinary value. Katrina is chock full of all the important things you need to know about marketing your business. And when she gets on a roll, wow! I always have a blast and have met some of the most wonderful people too. It’s great to share what’s going on in your business with others who get it.” ~ Charr Crail, Artist, Photographer, Teacher CharrCrail.org

 

My goal with this event and ANYTHING I DO is to inspire you to do more networking, speaking, marketing, sales and events (among other things) but also show you HOW! How to know what to do, how to do it, make more sales with ease, develop systems for as much as we can plus everything in between! You can do this, I promise, you just may need learn a little more first on what to do possibly or how to do it!

My Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit is coming up April 9-11, 2015 here in Sacramento. If you’re not currently registered to attend yet and you know you need to do some things differently this year to grow your business, I really urge you to change your plans, grab a seat and join me.Oh and there’s a LOT OF LOVE going around at my events too, you will be pleasantly surprised at the energy in the room and caliber of people who attend.

Everyone who comes is blown away with the amount of real hands-on training and on the spot coaching that we accomplish. It’s worth about 20 times as much as I’m asking for you to invest for what you’re going to get. You can read and watch videos of some of the previous attendees and what they have to say here but register soon before the rates go up again tomorrow, March 14th!
