JumpStart Your New Biz Start Up

First Steps to Setting Up Your Business’ Foundation for a Smooth-Running Consistent $$Making Machine  

  1. Determine your ideal target audience – whether you have one, two or three different target markets, figure out who they most logical ones are who would be interested in your products, services, programs and more and why they should care 
  1. Figure out your overall marketing message – the transformation you provide and the problems you solve and what type of “wording” will attract the target audience plus what’s in it for them (this wording and messaging will go on all your marketing materials and website) 
  1. Design a website – one that represents what you’re doing, selling, offering and who it’s for and why they should care. Make it attention getting and results oriented or visitors won’t take action when they get that and that’s your #1 priority. Also make sure you do not design this yourself… always seek professional help with this because your website should be the HUB of your business and most important tool.
  1. Develop your positioning on social media – which platforms to be on and how to show up so that you are conveying that overall marketing message and that others want to follow you. Then it’s about creating a plan and strategy for what to do online which takes time.
  1. Creating your marketing materials – there are wide range of materials you could create depending on where you’ll go, how you’ll market and what industry you’re in but here are a few you might consider, depending:
  • Business Cards
  • Brochures / Rack Cards
  • Note cards / Gifts
  • Chachkis
  • Floor Banners
  • Table Top Signs
  • Speaker Sheet
  • Order forms
  • Flyers
  • Infographic
  • Free gifts / ebooks
  • Nametags
  • Car Signs
  • Ads for print
  • Postcards
  1. Free gifts and downloads – you want to have one, two or even multiple freebies on your website and in general to make your target market want to learn more and get more info. What can you develop that hits their “hot buttons” and gives them a glimpse or a “taste” of what they’re seeking as far as advice, content, training, resources and more.
  1. Videos – you’ll use videos for all sorts of things, what you want to do in the beginning stages of your business is create videos that have people “experience you”, get to know you, learn from you, and for interaction on your website and social sites.
  1. Team and Tools – there will be many things you’ll start to implement or need to do that you can delegate or outsource, the key is figuring out WHICH things to start delegating first and how to make it so you can afford to delegate them. There are also many techy tools and resources that will help you be more efficient, productive and profitable, don’t be afraid to embrace tools to support you, be open to learning new things and new ways.

What do you do when a prospect says no?

What do you do when a prospect says no?

  • Do you give up the first time and say okay, bye?
  • Or do you ask why?
  • Do you try to get to the heart of the real reason they’re saying no?

If you give up too easily, or too soon, then you’re missing out on thousands and thousands of dollars in sales in your business.

For most prospects, their first no is just to see if you can overcome their objections. It’s not that they do this consciously, but unconsciously. Many people innately want to protect themselves from buying, so their subconscious triggers the standard responses that may not even be the real reason or real response they truly want to give.

When you’re in a sales conversation one-on-one with somebody there’s a lot more to do than just present the features and benefits of your program product or service and ask them if they want to buy.

The sales conversation is a dance that you have to learn, it’s not a skill we’re all born with. Some are better than others at this dance but we all have to learn how to do this better and more authentically to us. You can’t avoid learning more about sales and honing your sales skills just because you don’t want to be considered “salesy”. You just need to learn how to do it in a way that makes you feel good about it and that ALSO gets you the RESULTS that you want.

There are many phrases, words, and strategies to use within a sales conversation and it varies depending on your industry, type of business, level of confidence, skill, and opportunity in which you are engaging with a prospect.

If you don’t know what those are, and when to interject which, then you could lose the sale more often than not and you definitely are probably a little ill prepared on what to do when the prospect says no.

The words that you use and the things that you say in the sales conversation are critical to your success, and frankly critical to you serving your new customer or client. I’m assuming here that you have an amazing program product or service that is going to benefit your prospect tremendously here, I’m not just talking about selling people at random or because we are just out to “sell” someone. Selling is serving though and you do have to embrace that if you’re a business owner or you will most likely never get ahead.

Without sales your business cannot survive. Without clients, you cannot serve or help others so I urge you to do whatever it takes to hone your sales skills… sooner rather than later.  

If you know that handling objections, conversations like these, and even writing copy for your web pages where you want people to go click and buy, are things that you should probably be working on then you want to take a look at what’s going on this weekend. Check it out…

If you realize that you often don’t know WHAT to do when a prospect says no or how to get more prospects to speak with you in the first place, then you want to check this out. I promise that working on this will help you help more people while you’re also building a much more profitable business for yourself and your family.

I happen to be giving away a 30-minute video training on handling objections in your sales conversations. It’s included with a few other items in the Jumpstart Your Sales Now Package that I’m giving away absolutely free right now via the Ultimate Sales Confidence Giveaway that’s going on through tomorrow, May 31st.

I mentioned this giveaway once before in an email earlier this week but if you haven’t gone to register for this yet and any of the above resonates with you… now is the time.

Besides my free package, you can get access to many other free sales-oriented scripts, outlines, checklist, products, and more that are also included in this free giveaway. Run over to this page right and take full advantage of everything you can, while you can. I know a lot of the people who are giving free products away during this giveaway and these aren’t our regular freebies, they are actually things people pay for in our businesses and they are available only through tomorrow, Sunday May 31st so don’t delay.

Go grab the Jumpstart Your Sales Now Package plus many other free products and programs today!

Here’s to helping a lot more people with YOUR GIFTS and learning how to make sure they take advantage of them and that they don’t self-sabotage themselves from investing in what you have to offer.

11 Types of Videos You Can Create to Jumpstart Your Business

I know that for some of you you’re forced into doing more videos right now and others you love doing them or do them already and will continue to once the country gets “back to work”.

Videos are one of the single most paid attention to marketing strategy right now and YouTube is one of the world’s largest search engines.

You literally have to be doing videos to keep up with your competition and make sure you are NOT the “best kept secret” for what you do.

For many of you, you’re having to learn how to do videos more effectively, learn the technology as well as perhaps the strategy behind WHY you want to do more videos AND what the heck to do them about, right?

I’ll bet that you could be making this way too hard however and “overthinking” things like:

  • what do I talk about on videos? (what’s in your heart or top of mind w/ clients)
  • what technology do I need to buy? (none, use your phone or computer)
  • should I do Facebook live more?
  • how do I create my YouTube channel
  • and more…

Well, I’ve got a couple video TUTORIALS FOR YOU – click to watch either or both as you see fit… one is about WHAT to say or do videos about and the other is a real how-to tutorial that is live on my YouTube now on how to set up your YouTube Channel (it’s for beginners).

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO MARKETING TIPS VIDEO – PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL WHEN YOU’RE THERE, THANKS!

 

CLICK HERE FOR YOUTUBE SET UP TUTORIAL – PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL WHEN YOU’RE THERE, THANKS!

 

OK, now for the 11 Types of Videos You Can Create:

  1. Video tips about topics you are an expert in or that involve your business
  2. Product reviews if you have a book or product solely for the purpose to introduce and share features of a particular product
  3. Promotional video that talks about something you’re selling or offering for free
  4. Interview with you being interviewed or you interviewing someone or just a joint video with another complimentary business professional on a topic you both have expertise in
  5. Testimonial video for someone else or request them from your clients
  6. Training video for one of your paid courses or programs
  7. Free webinar or preview call designed to teach a little, list build, get people introduced to you and then make offers to work with you, enroll in a program or come to a free discovery/strategy session with you
  8. Facebook live or other social media live video with the purpose of building relationships (you can do others for the other above reasons too) and having your followers get to know you more
  9. Rant videos… if you must, go ahead and share some controversial thoughts!
  10. Webpage videos – these are videos that would enhance the wording on a specific page on your site. These could be good for the following types of pages (literally every page could have an explainer video): Home, About, Services, Free Gift, Contact, Free Consult, thank you pages, Speaker page and more!
  11. Tutorial video – either doing this for free or paid, I’ve done both. Some I feel have more value, I charge for, others that could be a very good draw to get more people on my list, I may give away. Some tutorials are good to show your assistants what you want done or they may give to you for things you need to learn in your business perhaps.

I know you can do this – go create some new videos!

And, because I love to invite you to events and calls that you can attend for networking and learning, here are 10 things you may find valuable to attend:

  1. The Int’l Entrepreneur Network calls are weekly They are all open Q&A and discussion calls. We talk about what YOU can do right now to help you get where YOU need to go next.

Jumpstart Your Marketing 30 Day Program

Now more than ever you may want to look at learning how to get better at “MARKETING” and how to do a LOT MORE of it to reach a lot more potential prospects.

Whatever your business or industry is I can guarantee you that you are NOT doing enough marketing. I know this because no one I ever talk to is, heck, I’m not even doing all I could do and I teach it!

Marketing is a culmination of the activities you need to do to to get in front of a lot more people. But most entrepreneurs need to do MORE and in many ways, having a “variety” of marketing activities going on every month.

It’s time to stop the doom and gloom attitude if you are experiencing that and learn what you need to do to MAKE MORE SALES during this time. That could mean that you need to DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY or hang out with other people who are more POSITIVE & ENCOURAGING. Either way, there are plenty of people out there buying right now (Yes, even YOUR products, programs and services too!). If you’re not experiencing this then you definitely need to re-evaluate what you’re doing in your marketing. You may also need to do very different things right now, times have changed and what you did just 2-4 months ago may not be working.

Let’s face it, some of us don’t try something new until we’re forced. Well… the time has come and I’m going to make this SUPER SIMPLE and convenient for you to learn more about doing effective marketing, lead generation, follow up and sales (online and offline).

I’m the Queen of teaching the HOW-TO!

My clients tell me that they love my calls and trainings because I literally teach them step-by-step what they need to do, say, send, click and post to become more successful in their business – online or offline – no matter what I’m teaching.

 

CLICK TO SEE WHY YOU WANT TO JOIN AND WHAT WE’RE COVERING. 

 

Program Details:

We start Wednesday, May 6th because what else have you got to do if you don’t have enough clients and can’t pay your bills? OR you want to USE this time wisely and get a lot more marketing set up and automated or delegated!

The New “Networking” – Treating Online Events Like Offline Ones

Let’s face it Zoom is the place for Business Networking right now…. and for a few years now it has been for me regardless. I love video conference calling and online meetings – they are SO efficient and effective PLUS they can be SUPER PROFITABLE TOO!

You just have to know how to “work the zoom room”! You also have to know how to work Facebook and other social media sites like you would a live, in person networking event.

Think about it, when you “walk onto Facebook” every day… think about it like you’re walking into a big in person networking event.

As you’re sending people Facebook Friend Requests or asking people to “LIKE” your business page…. would you really just walk up to someone in a live event, get your business card out and THROW IT IN THEIR FACE & turn around and walk away?????? NO!!! You sure would not. But that IS what so many entrepreneurs are doing these days on social media.

You just don’t know what you don’t know though… you have to LEARN how to do marketing the right way with these types of places and strategies… this is what I teach in my programs, coaching and even the $7/mo Int’l Entrepreneur Network calls that I run 3x/mo.

You have to ask for advice and seek the support and training that you need to get in front of a lot more people in a lot more ways to grow your business faster.

Business Basics for Consistent Cash Flow

Taking your business to the next level could mean… going back to and implementing the Business Basics that work and have worked for hundreds of years but you’ve forgotten about them because you get so distracted with the Bright Shiny New Thing. Listen into this video for some reminders about things you have probably gotten away from in your business… it’s all about Relationships in this day and age, and also talking with MORE people.

 

If you’re not making the kind of money you want to make it’s probably because you’re not talking to ENOUGH people! Get back to Business Basics, it’s time. Stop avoiding these basic marketing and business practices please. Reach out for help if you need it too, don’t just sit there not knowing what to do or how to do it.

20 Simple Business Basics: 

  1. Get a name badge so people know who you are wherever you go –  mixers, events, the store, etc. (it also adds credibility and professionalism)
  2. Get past the gatekeeper (receptionist/secty) to the business owner and get to know them, see if there is anything you can do on trade maybe so they can get a feel for your expertise
  3. Build Rapport & Relationships, don’t try to sell right off the bat, people get turned off, however don’t forget to slip in a trial close now and then
  4. Come up with original idea to get in the door with your product–maybe a food gift of some kind or creative promotional item
  5. Make 10 cold calls each day, no matter what (in person or on the phone) to people you want to associate with, do business with or who you want to refer business to you
  6. Gift those larger businesses you want to target or write a letter to those businesses you want to recommend your services
  7. Offer to donate raffle prizes to events – use gift baskets or purchase something from a business that you’re trying to get to refer business to you & always slip your card and brochure into the gift.  (Don’t offer as a prize a certain dollar amount off your product, it’s not a gift then, it’s only a discount.)
  8. Offer to give a referral discount or gift to those current customers who refer their friends or to anyone who refers friends (need to brainstorm ideas on incentives and “what’s in it for them” – maybe $100 referral fee?)
  9. Do anything and everything you can to get noticed!
  10. Every person you network with, follow up by sending them a quick note card asking if they would like to schedule a follow up call to get to know one another better and see if or how you can refer business to one another.
  11. Mail other marketing materials, brochure or letters about how you can help them in subsequent mailings to follow up.
  12. Send people a thank you card right away after a meeting, interview, etc.
  13. Follow up on every lead within 48 hours by phone, text, social media message or email, whichever works best for them.

How to stay organized and productive during this time…

Are you finding that you’re not as ORGANIZED or PRODUCTIVE as you’d like to be right now?

Does your income and/or business/job depend on you being highly productive right now?

If so, I racked my brain this morning to build a big list of things and tips to share with you that I do to get and stay organized and productive.

I’ve been doing all of this for years and since I already do a lot of my business virtually and online, there’s not a lot of “transition” or “learning curve” for me at this time…

But as I’m speaking with a lot of my clients and attending online networking events and calls on Zoom, I’m finding a LOT of professionals and entrepreneurs are NOT organized enough to be totally productive and profitable at this time.

Here’s a list of 20 things to consider paying more attention to or implementing in your life/daily business habits.

  1. Use your calendar! If you must use paper, ok, but otherwise I highly recommend a more universal online calendar like Google Calendar that you can literally check and update from any device, anywhere.
  2. Create folders on your desktop and in inbox to “sort” emails, documents, recordings by client, project, etc. so you can find things easily.
  3. Create Manila folders for physical notes and info and file near your desk.
  4. Date everything to keep good track – written notes and recordings or files put the date in the file name.
  5. Record calls and necessary information including content that you’re developing, sales conversations, client calls and more so you can keep information noted in case you forget stuff.
  6. Get on a computer for many things, not just phone to manage your social media marketing; often times doing things on the computer is much more efficient than “thumbing” your way through things in this digital time.
  7. Plan your day/week ahead of time and block out time too to work “ON” your business and do necessary marketing tasks.
  8. Review to dos nightly for the next day so you can hit the ground running every day.
  9. Take a shower and get presentable daily, early on, even if you don’t have to “go anywhere”, especially if you’ll be on video calls often or “should” be!!
  10. Eat a healthy breakfast that gives you energy, not one full of carbs or you’ll get too sleepy and lazy throughout the day.
  11. Workout if it also gives you energy.
  12. Schedule in and keep appointments for online networking calls, events and any one on one appointments, you gotta SHOW UP! Missing calls and appointments makes you look very unprofessional and unorganized.
  13. Set timers if you have to on your phone, Alexa, your computer, wherever… to keep you from forgetting things.
  14. Try to keep one place where you write down all your to dos, not a bunch of sticky notes or slips of paper, or random notes in your phone.
  15. Put all your creative ideas on that to do list under a section called ideas, knowing that you won’t implement them all at one time and can find them later.
  16. Have someone to share your fears and concerns with so you can get them out and not bottle them in to fester, someone like a spouse, friend or mentor.
  17. Recognize your most productive and creative hours of the day, and plan to create your marketing or implement ideas during that time, block off your calendar to do so regularly.
  18. If looking at your email or social media sucks you into a black hole of unproductiveness then plan times throughout the day where you are and do it on purpose and set a timer to get in and out quickly.
  19. Schedule specific times to do specific things to grow your business such as; social media marketing, writing, sending emails, checking emails, client calls, etc.
  20. Schedule in personal time too for self care such as; meditation, exercise, reading, journaling, prepping food, kids, family, etc.

In addition, there are SO many ways to make money during this shutdown and isolation period so if you can’t figure out WHAT to do or HOW to do it, you really want to reach out to me and schedule a call as I can give you dozens of ideas so you can continue supporting your family.  

One way that I’m LOVING right now is hosting compilation books – what if YOU gathered 5-15 of your friends and followers and they paid YOU $1,000 – $1,500 each to write a chapter in YOUR own branded compilation book!?!?!?! It’s an easy business model to add right now if you have a reasonable following or group of clients, no matter what the topic or focus.

You can do this!! I can help you!!

Upcoming Virtual Events & Trainings to Jumpstart Your Biz

There are SO many ways to make money during this isolation period so if you can’t figure out WHAT to do or HOW to do it, you really want to reach out to me and schedule a call as I can give you dozens of ideas so you can continue supporting your family. OR just sign up for one of the trainings or groups below so you can get resources and advice QUICK! 

One way that I’m LOVING right now is hosting compilation books – what if YOU gathered 5-15 of your friends and followers and they paid YOU $1,000 – $1,500 each to write a chapter in YOUR own branded compilation book!?!?!?! It’s an easy business model to add right now if you have a reasonable following or group of clients, no matter what the topic or focus.  

Another way is to host a short, low-priced online group training – it could be 90 minutes for $25 like the two I have below or a 3 week course training people on something for $197. Both of these are what I call, Easy Yes Offers, and will sell easier right now that a much longer, higher priced program. HOWEVER, I do always recommend you give people options if you’re speaking with them personally… start high and go low.

You can do this!! I can help you!! Just email or reach out and ask!

Here are a few ways to get support right now to doing things differently and jumpstart your business, revenues and sales. 

I decided to run a few short and inexpensive 3-Week Trainings and one-day trainings or even just 60-90 min classes around learning new skills during this time…. ALL OF THESE YOU CAN ACCESS EVEN IF THEY HAVE ALREADY STARTED OR HAVE ALREADY BEEN RECORDED. ALL OF THEM ARE STILL GOOD AS DO-IT-YOURSELF TRAININGS SO DON’T STOP JUST BECAUSE YOU SEE IT IS ALREADY OVER. 

1. Jumpstart Yourself as an Author Program – learn how to write and publish your own book, host a compilation book yourself or get published in any way – 5-week course (previously recorded but you can still go through it all on your own). This course is all about how to become an author and publishing a book yourself or where to get options and how it all works. You’ll learn what you need to know before, during and after you finish writing the book, how to find affordable editors, cover designers, and how to plan for an Amazon best-seller launch, what if you want to get a publisher, what to do about publicity, book signings, marketing and selling your book and more! – Click here for info.

2. Jumpstart Your Online Course Program – This course will help you change up your business and develop, market, sell and run an online course, membership program, online virtual workshop, mastermind or any type of online/virtual training or calls you can SELL to continue working and making money doing what you love during this quarantine (and beyond). Check out the video and webpage about this asap then, come and get something in place THIS WEEK that you can sell and promote right now. – Click here for info.

3. “Jumpstart Your Sales” Course, How to Enroll More Clients Through Authentic, Service-Oriented, One-on-One Sales Conversations – This 3-week course runs from April 9-23 live – teaching critical skills you want to continue to hone! – Click here for info and to register.

Key takeaways – learn how to:

  • Book more appointments and 1on1 sales conversations via email, zoom, social media and from anywhere
  • Conduct NON sales conversations for “Collaborations & Connecting” (I call them “Get-to-Know-Ya” calls) yet still turn many of those around into the person wanting to know about how to work with you or buy from you OR develop ways to refer business to one another
  • Take prospects through that 1on1 sales conversation much more easily, more authentically yet with more assertiveness and strategy so you can actually get more people to say YES to you
  • Develop the right offerings with the right pricing, from Easy Yes Offers to High-End Programs and everything necessary in between so that you close a much higher percentage of prospects into something no matter what
  • Navigate dancing with their concerns, objections, questions and challenges about enrolling or buying – we can give you a response to ANY scenario that comes up

4. Int’l Entrepreneur Network – this is a group of highly motivated new and seasoned business owners and entrepreneurs who get together 3+ times a month via Zoom calls for networking, masterminding, collaborating and getting and sharing resources, offerings, feedback on anything and everything that has to do with starting, growing, marketing and running your business (any type of business!).

5. Create Images & More on Canva 90-min Tutorial! – Canva.com is such a great resource for us at this time, whether you’re graphically creative or inclined or not, it has hundreds of templates anyone can use and most are all free. Many of my clients though still needed a short tutorial or training on how to utilize this tool quickly and easily to create their images, flyers, postcards, and presentations. This tutorial has been recorded via zoom with screen-sharing what to do, using real client examples too and is just $25.  You will get instant access to it when you sign up here.
