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.

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.
  14. Try to help everyone you meet by referring people to their business, they will remember you & do the same for you
  15. Follow up with all customers within 72 hours of their purchase by phone, text, social media message or email (or more than one of these).
  16. Send your web address with every follow up to continually take them back to your site for more ‘shopping’ or searching.
  17. Follow up with customers at least quarterly to ask for feedback and referrals
  18. Follow up with potential customers weekly to make appointments & ask for feedback and referrals
  19. Make sure your customers have plenty of brochures on hand & some kind of marketing object with your website on it for easy access (pens, pad of paper, magnet, stress ball, other? etc.)
  20. Send out personal cards to clients for Christmas, Birthdays or some other holiday at least twice a year (there are companies who will do that for you)

Are you trying to figure out how to build a CONSISTENT 6-FIGURE BUSINESS doing what you love? Consistency being the KEY here.

Well, over the last 15 years in my coaching business, I’ve seen thousands of entrepreneurs in all different industries and levels in business all trying to reach this same goal… most without a lot of luck however.

During this time, I’ve learned that most entrepreneurs DO NOT HAVE consistent cash flow. If you are currently making 6- figures each year, let’s keep you there!  If creating a 6 or 7-figure business is what you are aiming for, you are in the right place.

Either way, you need to set realistic goals. If you expect to make 7-figures during your first year of business, you will likely be disappointed when you don’t reach that mark.  Set your goals to realize incremental growth in your income and sales.  You need to work at it consistently and your growth needs to be sustainable. Otherwise, your cash flow will have peaks and valleys.

All of the tips I’m sharing here are important but I’m not ranking them by order of importance. They include:

Systems & Strategies:

Your systems and strategies must be organized with the processes you have in place.  For example, how do you generate leads from your website?  Everything on your website should be clear and should run smoothly.

Think about your Marketing, Follow-up & Sales Systems, from social media, live events, speaking gigs, or even Facebook Live.  How do you get people or leads into your system or process?  Do you have to follow up with every lead manually? Or, do you have a process, system, or the technology in place that enters your lead into your process. This is the #1 obstacle that I see holding many entrepreneurs back from making more money.  They try to take care of too many things manually.

Get the Right Team in Place:

I have several years’ experience hiring assistants to handle a variety of tasks to help me in my business. And I’ve made a lot of mistakes. But I’ve learned a lot from those mistakes. I’ve also learned tips from the VA community which has increased my insights about hiring and managing teams. I have a free training that includes a checklist of all of the types of tasks you can and should be outsourcing. You can access it here at jumpstartyourteam.com.  Just remember, it’s very difficult to expand your reach, grow your business and make more money if you are the only person working in your business. You just can’t do it all and expect to create a 6-figure business.

I recently created a Facebook Live Broadcast where I explained all of the Steps for Sustaining a 6-Figure Business Doing What You Love.  Click here to access the broadcast to get all of these valuable steps.   If you are not currently a member of this Group, you may need to join the Group to see the broadcast. 

These 7 Secrets or Steps are, in my opinion, the biggest keys to sustaining a 6 or multiple 6 figure income. After viewing the broadcast, please feel free to let me know what you think.

Here’s to Your Success!

Do you know how many times each month I talk to people who are settling? If you are, then my advice to you is STOP IT! There are those who are in a job and it pays the bills, but they hate it! There are those who are in unhappy marriages and they do nothing but complain about it constantly. There are others who are single and who want to be in a relationship, but they are doing nothing to find the man or woman of their dreams.

Then there are people who are settling with the results of their business! Why?  You can change things in your business to get better results! Stop Settling!   Your business is YOUR baby.  It can evolve because you have the control to change it.

You don’t have control over the dating environment. You don’t have control over your boss at the job you hate, unless you are ready to get rid of it.  If you are unhappy in your job and if you can start and grow YOUR business with consistent cash flow – then yes, you can quit your job.  I help people like you regularly – people who are ready to leave their jobs but need someone to pull out their unique talents in a conversation and who can guide you to create a consistently profitable business.

If you are thinking that you have to WAIT for something to change in your life, your love life, your career or your business, STOP IT!  How long are you going to put things off?  Life is just too darn short!  Wake Up!

How many people do you know that have a serious, life-threatening disease?   It seems I hear about someone I know coming down with a serious health problem or disease frequently these days.  If you want your life to change, don’t wait!   Change things now so you can be happy and live your life with purpose.

If your job or  your career isn’t serving you; if your relationship with your significant is not making you happy, you should talk to someone who has experienced many of this situations you are experiencing.  You need someone who has a better understanding of how to match opportunities with talents.  Let’s face it; many people don’t know what they don’t know.  I’m here to make you aware of opportunities and how to maximize them to your benefit.

I want you to stop settling!  I want you to have a happier life, to be successful and make MONEY!  I’ve done it and I want to be your resource to guide you so you can experience this too.

Click on the video to hear get more info on Why You Should Stop Settling and Live your Life NOW! 

My goal is to work hard now so I don’t have to work hard when I’m in my 60’s & 70’s.  What about you?  If any of this has resonated with you, please come talk to me. You can sign up for a FREE strategy session on my website at AskKat.biz.  In this session , we can talk about your current situation,  whether it’s personal or business.  Hint: if you are an entrepreneur, your personal life is a part of your business!  It has to flow together – you have to structure your business around your life, not the other way around.    OR

If you haven’t heard yet, I have a live event coming up April 5th – 7th.  And you should definitely check it out! It’s my Love & Money LIVE! event!  I’m personally inviting you to this transformational event where we will talk about the LOVE side of your life and the MONEY side of your business and your life. These two go hand in hand – you need balance so you can experience a more joyful and purposeful life while making enough money to enjoy your life.  Go to LoveandMoneyLive.com  to see all of the topics we are going to cover.  Trust me, you will learn so much at this event!

I really enjoyed talking about how to make Fast Cash by creating Easy YES Offers with Minette Riordan and Brad Dobson, co-founders of The Path to Profit Academy and Podcast for Creative Entrepreneurs.

What a FUN Interview!

I created the concept of an Easy YES Offer a few years ago when I had positioned myself to sell mostly high end programs. In fact, the price of my lowest end program was $200. I attended a workshop where the focus was “making money today”. My intention was to sell my $2,000 program and I offered a flashdrive containing some more of my trainings and programs as a BONUS!   My ‘ah ha’ moment came when people were asking to buy the bonus, instead of the $2,000 program. I sold several of the flashdrives that day for a lower price than the program, but I ended up with Fast Cash.

It’s something I encourage attendees to use at my LIVE events. It’s an offer that’s specifically designed as to make people say YES and buy on the spot! It’s designed to make FAST CASH. It’s not just a lead magnet although you can use a freebie as an alternative with those who don’t accept your Fast Cash Offer. It works best when you make the offer irresistible!

For example, I’ve had people make Fast Cash Offer at my Events that cost $50 and six people bought it – that’s a quick $300. Others have designed offers that cost more.

These offers are for those who need clients! There are several ways to structure these offers!

Click on the video below to get specific ideas about creating your EASY YES OFFER, sales funnels, the importance of systems and MORE !

 

 

So what type of Easy YES Offer will you create?

Walt Grassl and I talked about Love and Money on his Stand Up and Speak Up Radio Show.  The topic was about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business.

Walt’s Radio Show is about facing your fears so you can live your dreams.  All of us have had to do this at some time in our lives or careers.

When I was working in my corporate career in sales and marketing years ago, I quickly discovered that people don’t know what they don’t know. I still find this to be an issue with some of my clients.

A few years after I left the corporate world and started my business, I found out myself in that same boat, especially when it came to online marketing and leveraging.

I knew that I wanted to make more money and online marketing was a way for me to serve more clients. But I was trading hours for dollars and I knew I couldn’t continue to do that because there’s only so many hours in a day.

Once I made the decision to use systems and automate my business processes, I had time to create more programs for my clients and was able to cut the time I was working from 60 hours per week to 10-15 hours working with clients. The rest of my time is spent marketing myself and my business, training, and speaking engagements.

Love and Money – What I Learned

The way that Love impacts the ability to make more Money comes from my personal experience. I learned that a love of self, supportive people in my life to love me and yes, a change in my own mindset was what I needed to nurture my big ideas into reality. Attracting and having Love in my Life helped me make more Money!

In this interview, Walt and I discussed a variety of business topics like speaking in your business.  Many speakers have had to overcome the fear of public speaking and making a mistake while in front of people.  I’ve experienced many of the struggles and challenges that other speakers experience but I’ve learned to overcome them.  And one big mistake that many speakers make is failing to make a connection with their audience in their intro. If you don’t do that, you’ve lost them for the rest of your presentation.

I’ve shared some issues or landmines that speakers can run into when they are hosting their own live events and ways to avoid those costly mistakes, the beauty of making Fast Cash and more.

Click to Listen in to our discussion about Putting More Love in your Life and More Money in your Business!

So, are you ready to put more Love in your Life and more Money in your Business?  I’m hosting my Love & Money LIVE! event in Sacramento on April 5th – 7th.  We have new content and speakers coming to inspire you to transform your Life and your Business.  Take a look at what we cover at https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/loveandmoneylive   I’m looking forward to meeting you there!

How would you like to continuously attract clients and build a business that makes more money – one that really excites you?

One of my favorite guest speaker interviews was with Adam Hommey, host of Business Creators Radio Show.  Adam’s audience consists of business owners and entrepreneurs who want to hear about tools, techniques and strategies to help them build their businesses.

The top and frequently asked questions from business owners revolve around time and money issues.  Time and Money issues are where many of them get stuck.

Attracting more clients and making more money are issues that all small business owners face no matter what is going on in the economy.  There are several things that can get in the way of many business owners doing just those two things.  They include things like:

  • Bright Shiny Objects that will distract you;
  • Implementing the wrong tasks or actions and implementing them the wrong way;
  • Trying to do everything yourself.

When I’m working with a client, I will discuss with them all of the things they need to do or start doing to transform their business, take it to the next level, etc.  And because we are all so crazy busy, I usually hear objections about having enough time.  For those clients with time issues,  I start them out with “clearing space”.   That means the client is to review everything they are doing and decide if it’s something that’s still important for them to do, what they can delegate it, what they can automate and systemitize, and so on.   It’s really about clearing things off of your plate to see where you can get back a couple of hours every day.

This clearing space process works well.  After working on clearing space for one year, one of my clients’ reclaimed 8 hours per week back in her life because we automated, systemitized and delegated many of the things in her business that she had formerly spent time on.

Most people want to get more time to do more marketing for their business or to get their life back, spend more time on self-care or with their families.

One way business owner can get more time is to learn how to say “No” to some things so they can say “Yes” to other things that are a better fit.

I have my clients create vision boards to stay focused on the BIG Picture; what’s really important to them so they don’t lose their focus and get bogged down in the minutia of day to day tasks.

Another great way to find more time is to learn to calendar your life. Now I realize many people don’t like that kind of structure but I challenge them to calendar everything for one month. This helps you learn how to block your time.

Adam and I discussed many other great tips and if you want to hear more of our conversation to get some tips you too can implement to  Attract More Clients and Make More Money, click here to listen to our discussion on the Business Creators Radio Show.

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!

Today I want to talk to you about a topic I LOVE to help others with – it’s all about making some Fast Cash! And you CAN make FAST CASH for the Holidays and before the end of the year!

Some of you might be focusing solely on the Holidays and have already given up on making additional income before the end of the year. But some of you may be focusing on making more revenue BEFORE December 31st!  You want to serve more people, meet more of your goals, start STRONG in 2017!

make fast cash for the holidaysThe First Tip is simple – It’s Making Phone Calls

Yes, I know, I usually get  biggest resistance from my clients when I mention making Phone Calls! I’m not talking about Cold Calling. I’m talking about calling your Contacts, people you network with, existing Clients, those who follow you – People who Know, Like, & Trust you!  One strategy that you can implement right now is to call them and Ask for REFERRALS!!  But because so many people are busy right now, you should be prepared with a great detailed message if you get their voice mail.

Another Tip – Special Sales!

Did you received a ton of special sales email during the Thanksgiving holidays?  Did you want to have a special Cyber Monday sale but weren’t prepared enough to launch it?  You still have time to hold a special sale but you’ve got to get it together – NOW!   Just remember that people are busy with holiday shopping, mailings, school schedules, and the like –  so you’ll have to plan for a variety of marketing strategies to promote what you are selling to reach them.

 

Check out the video below for more detail about how YOU can make FAST CASH for the Holidays and before the New Year!

The subject of what to delegate to an Assistant or Virtual Assistant was a topic that several members of my Live Big Mastermind wanted to discuss with me recently.  The topic came up again during our bi-weekly group call in my Mastermind this week.

It appears to be a HOT topic, so I thought I should be sharing some tips about it with you today!   I’m also including a juicy FREE resource at this end of this video so make sure you pick that up while you are here.  And now, here are my Tips:

What Types of Tasks Should You Delegate to an Assistant

when & how to delegate to an assistant or VAYou have to figure out the types of tasks you need to delegate first.  For example, do you need someone to do technology-type tasks?  If you do, they will need to have experience doing those types of tasks which is very different from someone you might hire to make phone calls for you to generate leads, follow up with leads, book speaking gigs and things like that.   Once you’ve determined your types of tasks, you may find that you need more than just one person – you may need multiple people who can perform different types of tasks.

Most people need at least two people when they start out.  You don’t pay more, you just split the time that you are paying for between the two people.  You also have to find out what types of tasks the person is experienced doing and what they love to do before hiring them.  Interviewing prospective virtual assistants is KEY to making sure you get someone who is really good at the type of task you need them to do.

Reasons Why You Need to Start Delegating Now

Why do I delegate in the first place?  Because I love taking a three day weekend with my family, going to events, and I like not having to worry about what’s been done when I’m away at speaking events.  My team takes care of those things for me.  Wouldn’t you like this kind of freedom?  Delegating allows me to take a real vacation where I’m not working while on the beach.  It also allows me to do more to reach more people so I can make more money!!!  And You Can Too!

Check out the video below for more detail about How and What to Delegate to an Assistant or VA to Save YOU Time!

Video Biz Tip: How and What to Delegate to an Assistant or VA to Save YOU Time!

I’m offering a **FREE** checklist of the types of tasks you need to start delegating. These are 43 things that I’ve found have come up in my business over the past 14 years where I needed to delegate the tasks to an assistant. It’s a great list to start with to give you some ideas. It has helped my clients see areas where an assistant would be beneficial. Of course, there will be some things that might not apply to where you are in your business at this time, but you can use them later on.

So make sure you pick up my checklist. You’ll find it on my Live Big Events website, (where you’ll also get information about my live events). Go to: Livebigevents.com/delegatingchecklist
