Weekly Marketing Checklist

Want to know the things I do regularly to grow and expand my business? Entrepreneurship isn’t for the faint of heart. If your goal is to reach the masses with your message and/or make a minimum of $3000/mo, I would say, in this day and age, you’ll want to be doing MOST of these things regularly as well!

Get in front of more people, more often and in more ways is the #1 goal…ways you can do that include the following:

  • in person networking
  • in person speaking
  • in person vendor/exhibiting
  • host a FB live/YouTube Live yourself
  • host a FB live w/ a guest
  • be a guest on podcasts, radio shows all over
  • Call into group zoom networking events and network in chat, especially those events that allow commercials with who is on live
  • ask others who do FB lives to bring you on as guest
  • offer to collaborate with peers on joint FB lives
  • nurture and interact with your community, your groups, and clients, etc. often so they will spread the word about you
  • host live events
  • participate and network, share tips and advice inside FB or LI groups – then take conversations off to a private message and then a phone call
  • go after publicity in your local marketplace, get on local TV, radio and in print media. It’s not as hard as you think
  • get published with your articles, blog posts and video tips on other people’s blogs, websites and directories. There are often submission guidelines on their sites or just reach out and ask!
  • pay attention to online summits and giveaways and be a part whenever possible in those types of events
  • travel to larger conferences and targeted events throughout the country and possibly be a vendor there if you aren’t chosen to speak
  • get listed in online directories and maximize your profiles everywhere such as social media, your professional membership websites and wherever your target market looks – sometimes there is an opportunity to be a partner of a website such as a catering association needs website designers, but normally web designers don’t join catering assoc. they can sometimes be a partner member which means you have access to that entire membership directory

Other ways to engage your Database/Community:

  • send an update letter in the mail
  • send an update email
  • call through your database a couple times a year
  • send twice monthly newsletters or emails of some sort (min 2x/mo or more)
  • share more stories with them to get them to connect with you more
  • friend or connect with each customer or person in your email database over on social media as well – sending a private message to them over there
  • sending more private messages and/or segmented messages to specific groups within your database so it speaks more directly to them and their needs. (example, someone who signs up for your Grief ebook, may be different than someone who signs up for Purpose workshop)
  • actively ask for referrals
  • ask them to take surveys, give their input
  • offer free coaching calls every once in a while
  • send holiday cards anytime of the year – more direct mail regardless
  • send a print newsletter in the mail
  • send a private video message just to them, one by one, there’s a system for that
  • start a text message campaign, get them to give approval to add them to it and then start sending texts to certain clients and people who want info that way
  • host free group calls on conf line or zoom to give them support and do Q&A
  • host free webinars and calls bringing in other experts to share
What will you add to YOUR marketing plan this year?

Today I’m super excited to give you another Video Biz Tip – it’s all about plotting out your Marketing Calendar!

Are you an entrepreneur who is not sure what you should be doing every month or every week? This post and the video below is a snapshot for those of you who are not sure how you should be spending your time or if you are outside of your office and in front of others enough to promote yourself and your business. This is one of the topics we cover in my Live Big Mastermind and at my Live Events, like we just did at my “Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend” event a few days ago, see the example in the video. Just remember to plot your marketing calendar and BE CONSISTENT! Consistency is the KEY in a good marketing strategy.

marketing calendarAre you blogging consistently? What about Facebook LIVE videos – are you using this tool to reach the people who want to hear your message? If not, you should be. What about Networking? What events did you have planned for the month? And are you calendaring your Follow-Up after the networking events? If not, you need to start doing that. There’s profit in your follow-up. If you don’t know what to do, I have a system of techniques, templates, and scripts – everything you need to create your own Follow Up system that WORKS!

The video below gives an example of a monthly marketing calendar with detailed explanation.

Check out the video below for more tips on “What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

“What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

This example is generic. I help my clients customize their marketing calendar that is specific to their business.

There are so many ways you can engage with me personally, such as my LIVE Events, my Live Big Mastermind program, and coaching calls. I’m happy to do a one-time coaching call with you to get you on the right track, if you are not ready to dive into a coaching program.

You can also learn what you should be doing on specific parts of your marketing via my recordings and trainings. My “Marketing Basics for Consistent Cash Flow” is an amazing webinar series. It’s a simple, indepth training on the Top 10 Marketing Strategies and it’s affordably priced. You can find it at LiveBigEvents.com and look for the Webinar on the top navigation window on that page.

I’m also launching the Entrepreneur Training Academy very soon so watch for the announcement about that in your inbox or on Social Media. It’s a 6 month program for entrepreneurs to teach you everything you need to know, from A to Z, on how to start, market, and grow your business to make it a consistent, revenue generating business.

Here’s to Your Success!

tips for plotting out your marketing calendarI’ve been talking about the NEED number a lot lately and I’m working on the Marketing Planning Process with several of my 1on1 and VIP clients right now.  I hope you are working on your plan as well!

There are so many ways to plot out your Plan of Action for your year such as a Mind Map, a Vision Board, your Google Calendar or even sticky notes.

But, you can’t create an effective PLAN without knowing how much money you need to make in your business!  If you haven’t already picked up your FREE download of this resource, click here to get my worksheet to develop your NEED Number today!

All of this type of planning is critical to your business. This is something I coach people on. It’s so much more than knowing how to post on Facebook or how to create a Facebook Video. Sure, it’s good to know those things, but if you are not thinking about the Big Picture in your business – like How to Plot out your Marketing Calendar and in what order of importance – you will find yourself half way through the year struggling to make the money you wanted. And you’re not going to reach your Goals!

Remember – we created our businesses so we could have the kind of life we WANTED to live. And guess what – it takes some work! Get out of your comfort zone.

It all comes down to “what do you need to make every month”. If you don’t have the clarity and understanding of how much money you need to make each week or each month, my Need Number tool will help you!

For introverts, these lead generation strategies might not appeal to you….but for me I love what I do!  Everyone needs to learn how to Work the Room at Events & Conferences to generate more leads without being annoying and salesy. You want people to talk to you, right?

I love going to events, conferences and inspiring, supporting, coaching and even converting people to become clients. Why do I go to so many live events, even if I have to travel to get to them? Because it’s the biggest form of lead generation in my business! Remember you have to do more of what works. And this works IF you know how to work the room like I do.

lead generation work the room at eventsHere are my Tips for Working the Room when you are at Networking Events & Conferences:

  1. Start with Serving – have a goal of helping others rather than finding people to buy your stuff, you will attract a lot more people to talk with.
  2. Have good Energy stay in the frame of mind that it will all work out in the end, if you give, you will get. I go in with loving energy to hold space for people who need my help and are struggling, what do your prospects need?
  3. Ask Lots of Questions stop talking about yourself unless asked, ask other questions than just “what do you do?”. To find out if someone might need my help I ask, “what are your biggest challenges in your business or marketing right now?
  4. Seek the Unknown stop sitting with people you know already (unless you invited them as your guest), move around the room at every break to meet and sit with NEW people to meet as many people as possible
  5. Provide Value if someone expresses a challenge or asks a question about something you have expertise in, help them on the spot, give them a few minutes of “free advice or resources”, not just a flyer about your services to buy first.
  6. Get the Verbal Opt In grab everyone’s business card or contact information but remember to ask them if they’d like to receive your free tips, resources, report, audio, video, etc. and get on your email list. Otherwise you cannot add them, this is a verbal opt in; do it to build your list faster and making the follow up easier
  7. Move ON! don’t hang out with the same people the whole time, there are way too many more people to meet – keep moving on. If someone won’t “let you move on” then politely introduce them to someone else and bow out of the conversation (I call that passing them off)

Other Great Strategies for you to try.

  • When Planning Travel to an Out of Town to an Event or Conference – Prepare ahead of time; check the event/conference schedule first. Then start connecting with your contacts and friends in the area to set up additional fun meetups, Tweetups (if you are holding a meetup on Twitter) and networking opportunities. You can advertise your meeting on Meetup, on Twitter, Facebook Events to name a few ways to get exposure for free. Try this the next time you go to a Conference or an out of town Event – it REALLY WORKS!
  • Hosting Networking Opportunities When I’m hosting a fun networking opportunity in the area I’m traveling to, I use Private Message to send a message to people on Facebook or LinkedIn to invite them to a networking opportunity in their area. On Facebook, simply go to business groups that are in the area of your destination. You can see all of the members of groups on Facebook, IF the group is not SECRET. Remember – you are not going to spam them with your business offerings – NO! The intent is that you want to genuinely connect with them and let them know that. You might tell them that you are hosting a business networking event in their area and would love to see them there. Of course, ask them to come and to share the information about the networking event/meetup with their connections/friends. That’s not salesy or pushy. You are attempting to connect with others in a different area. People will respond to you. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this approach – it’s one of my guerilla marketing strategies.
  • Remember Your Marketing Materials When you are attending out of town events – always bring your marketing materials, information, forms! I’ve made THOUSANDS at an event where I was attending and not speaking at, by simply being prepared with a sampling of things that I offer. This person invested $40k in one of my high end programs! So, make sure you have your marketing materials AND your order forms on your high end programs when you are attending events & conferences.
  • Regarding the Verbal Opt-In Here’s a great tip to help you get the VERBAL Opt-in Make sure to take along something to give to those you meet at Live Events, something to induce them to be on your email list. I have created a Cheat Sheet of 17 Revenue Generating Tips that I offer to those I meet who are struggling in their business. I hand these out at the time I’m talking with them in exchange for their business card(s) AND I let them know that they will be receiving additional tips and information from me because I’m going to put them on my email list! (so they can receive the tips) You can also create a CD to take along to hand out. Just make sure the person knows that you will be signing them up on your email list so you can send them whatever you’re offering that will help them. As you know, or should know, you can’t just add someone to your email list just because they’ve exchanged business cards with you. Get the verbal opt-in!

love and money live eventI could go on and on with sharing great tips with you. But why don’t you come to my Live Big Event! There are only a few seats left – Woo hoo! I’ve secured all the speakers and almost ALL of them have NEVER spoken in this area before…so exciting! They are all really good friends of mine and I love these women….you will too.

Want to know when to start marketing?

In Part 1 of this article, I covered what marketing really is and how to jumpstart your business and marketing….

Beyond all of that however, where should you start marketing or building a following?

marketing-words-imageIf your goal is to generate cash pretty quickly then I recommend you start marketing in two areas:

  1. Your Database – This should be everyone and anyone you “have access to” or often termed: your circle of influence. This could be anyone you know, do business with, are involved with inside organizations you belong to and even your social media connections. This does not mean you go add them all to an email newsletter database however but consider everyone you know and have access to as potential prospects or referral sources.
    1. Depending on who they are and how you know them then, depends on the approach you use to connect and nurture that relationship. (or market to them)
  2. In Person – You’ll want to meet as many new people as possible and for most small businesses, that means getting out in person where your ideal prospects hang out. When you meet people in person, it’s faster to build relationships where they like, trust and connect with you. Online marketing and connecting typically takes a lot longer.

If your goal is to build the business the right way from the start and you aren’t in urgent need of making money quickly necessarily then here is where I would start:

  1. Building your online presence – This is where most people will go to find out more about you, your products and services, your company, your philosophy, your values, your team, and more. These days people will make buying decisions based on your online presence, especially if they haven’t met you yet in person first.

Your online presence consists of all of the following:

  • Your website
  • Videos of you
  • Your social media profiles and pages
  • Your personality online and what you post or write (or the lack of)
  • Google searches on your name or company name
  • Your reviews or testimonials (or lack of)
  1. From the online presence comes “What you’re selling” – You must make it very clear on what you’re selling or no one will buy much less request more information.

This includes knowing more about and doing well with:

  • JumpStartLogoCopywriting
  • Marketing messages
  • Your unique selling preposition (what makes you different)
  • Making it easy for people to understand what you’re doing, how to get information, how to contact you, how will what you offer benefit them.

I could go on and on here as you can tell but the point is to start marketing now.

Then if you’re not exactly sure what to do to market your business or get started building a following, building relationships and nurturing those relationships over time (which is crucial), then you need to ask for help from a professional.

There is way too much to know or learn about marketing, it would take years trying to figure it all out on your own, why not get a clear plan of action quickly from someone you can trust? It will help give you that jumpstart you want and need and save you a heck of a lot of time and money doing the wrong things.

Want to know when to start marketing?

More often than not, when I speak with newer business owners or those who want to start up a business but aren’t quite ready yet or aren’t sure yet of what kind of business to start…the number one thing the majority of them say about marketing is “when I’m ready to start marketing Katrina, I’ll come to you”.

No!!!

start-up-biz-imageThe time to start marketing your business is now!

Before you think you’re ready!!

Why?

Because you have to start building a following of people who are interested in your topic matter, your industry, your voice. The sooner you start building a following and start talking to people about what you’re doing, whether you’re doing it yet or not, the sooner you’ll have interested parties to sell to when you’re actually ready – YOU’LL HAVE PROSPECTS!

If you wait until you’re “ready”, first of all that day may never come. I’ve seen it.

Secondly, who’s going to be there to listen to you when you announce that you’re ready? No one, or very little people.

You have to start right away with the marketing, trust me.

Marketing comes BEFORE sales.

  • It’s lead generation
  • It’s relationship building
  • It’s content providing
  • It’s connecting
  • It’s nurturing
  • It’s sharing

It doesn’t mean you have to sell anything yet – but you can!

You can sell your products and services BEFORE you’re ready. You can make money without a website, business card, logo or brochure.

You can “build the plane while you’re flying it” so they say!

I know for some of you with a more corporate or educational background, this concept is a tough one. But trust me, wouldn’t you like to find out if there are people out there who want to buy what you want to sell them BEFORE you spend too much time or money creating whatever IT IS?

Yes, you want to know this.

This is Market Research, part of the marketing process.

Where do you start jumpstarting your business in the first place?

You start by either knowing one or more of the following things somewhat clearly (you don’t have to know all of these however right off the bat, nor do you have to be completely clear about them to start marketing):

  • jump-start-your-biz-logoWho do you want to serve? Who do you enjoy working with or who do you think that will be? What type of person, organization or business is it? What do they care about most in regards to what you’re doing? What problems do they need to solve that are in your wheelhouse?
    • If you’re somewhat clear on the WHO then just find out what they want and figure out then what to sell them (to start) and where to find them.
  • What do you want to offer? Do you have specific products or services that you’re wanting to sell and make money on?
    • If you’re somewhat clear on the WHAT then just go into the marketplace and see who’s buying those and that becomes your WHO – start with the most obvious buyers first.
  • How do you want to work? How you want to work should first determine what types of products and services you offer, what business models you implement and possibly even who you target. Depending on how you want to work, there will be very specific marketing strategies you’ll want to do first, plus you may want to delegate some things more too so you can get farther faster.
    • Do you still have a job and can only work an additional 4 hours a week on your business?
    • Do you have two businesses and trying to juggle what to do with each effectively and consistently?
    • Do you want to only work X number of hours a week, month or year?

Want to know why most people will never be great at marketing?

I’ll tell you….reverse-engineer

It’s because they/you get in their/your own way!

You get in your own way with:

  • Thinking that it’s too expensive
  • You don’t want to be perceived as salesy
  • Thinking people will be upset if you send them too many emails or call back too often
  • Making marketing decisions around what YOU like or don’t like (ie: you hate getting junk in the mail so you don’t mail anything to prospects or you hate it when people email you weekly information so you barely send something out once a month!)
  • You don’t believe or aren’t sure yet if you have something important enough to tell them, share or invite them to

Instead try doing the REVERSE and seeing what happens!

  • You say “how CAN I afford this”
  • You change your thinking and realize that being persistent in your follow up, marketing, and sales processes is being “of service” to them, not being salesy
  • You realize that people are WAY too busy to read or see everything that you send them or share so they will rarely get upset due to more information being sent. Besides, people and your prospects will FORGET ABOUT YOU in 30 days!
  • Make your marketing decisions based on what is WORKING for those in your market, industry and more AND they are making money due to it

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!

You will know what to be spending your time on each day and where you need to focus; things that are important like your business, your self-care, your family time – everything!

Ok we’re almost at the end of 2014….is your 2015 business and marketing plan ready to go?

Do you have your big picture goals plotted out?

Do you have your annual marketing calendar in place?

What?

You don’t? I’m shocked!

Naw…I’m not really…the majority of small business owners don’t do enough planning, so if you’re not totally ready for the New Year yet, I get it.

I used to be just like that, putting off the planning so much that the whole year would go by before I really had a handle on what I was doing.

Or hap-hazardly taking action on this or that with no clear plan or focused direction.

Not a good idea right?

These days I do some planning for sure. It’s truly the only way I can maintain and grow my 6 Figure Business!!

Wanna get a glimpse into my world and how I plan? It’s easy and I’ll show you so you can do it too! Click the video below and see what you think!


 

If you resonated with what I shared on this video and KNOW you need to do more PLANNING for yourself and your business this year, RIGHT NOW….then go get IMMEDIATE ACCESS to my recent Big Picture Business & Marketing Planning Webinar now.
