Are you wondering how to get your clients’ (or those who are on your email list) attention these days? 

They subscribed at some point or bought from you but they’re just not opening your emails… this is becoming a HUGE ISSUE amongst a lot of us who have worked so hard and long to build a following, our community if you will, of people who wanted more information about what we do, how we can help, etc. but now just aren’t paying much attention, if any at all.

This is a question I ask my clients, event attendees and even the audience from stage or a podcast interview.

Do you want the answer to how to get more people to pay attention via email?

The magic pill to getting 80-100% email open rates?

Are you sure?

Ha ha ha… 

Well – SO DO I ! LOL

Why do you think I’m writing an email about how to get your emails opened? I’ll let you know if this worked.

I’m really not trying to trick you, I’m trying to see if you open or respond to this, knowing it must be a concern for you also.

So, what are we going to do about it?

I know what I’m NOT going to do.

I’m not going to STOP emailing you. I’m not going to stop sharing my thoughts, business advice, tips, and personal stories with you.

I’m not going to email you less in hopes that you open my emails then or more just to bug you. I’m going to email when I think there’s something of interest to share with you, something that can benefit you in your quest to growing your business, making a lot of money doing what you love!

I recommend you do not stop sending emails either.

  • Send them based on your life though – when you want to send them.
  • Send stuff that’s relevant to your ideal clients and community.
  • Tell stories and get personal with them, that’s what they want to hear anyway and what differentiates you from others who do what you do.
  • Stop worrying about how long the email has to be or what days or times to send them though. As you can probably tell there is no magic answer.
  • Just communicate, share, inspire, educate and relate. Period.
  • You don’t need fancy software, templates, designs or logos.

But you do need to be compliant these days or your email address, the actual address, could get blackballed and caught in people’s S**M filters. I don’t even want to write the word in here for fear of more walls going up.

So, what DO you do to get people to pay attention?

  • You get REALLY creative.
  • Give awesome value.
  • Be accessible. Did you know I read every single email that comes my way? Some people actually think I have an assistant who reads them – or writes these even! Nope, it’s all me. Good or bad I guess, it’s what’s on my mind and the minds of my clients. That’s what I try to bring to you.

Finally, have fun with it!

Pretend like you’re writing to your favorite client, yes, just them. See what happens!

Just please also make sure you’re doing various other things in your marketing and follow up to keep in touch with your clients and those you meet – like phone calls, connecting on social media sites AND sending stuff in the US mail (yes, I said the mail – it’s a must these days)! Give me your address on one of my forms and you’ll see what I send! 😉

Wanna chat sometime soon about what could be missing in your business?

If it could be POSSIBLE that there are some “missing pieces” to YOUR sales process then why not “TRY ME OUT”!

Would you like to mastermind with me and a small group of highly motivated entrepreneurs every month? 

What if I told you it would only cost you $7/month?

You’re invited for sure – this could be a great opportunity for you too because it could be EXACTLY what you need right now to get a big jumpstart in your life or business!

I haven’t offered this type of group or community EVER. This organization is NOT about me, it’s all about YOU and our members! This is entirely different than anything I’ve ever created also because it’s all about COMMUNITY. 

In case you missed this in my last few emails the last month or so, I founded the International Entrepreneur Network.  This is a community who will support and guide you 100%!  It’s a community where you can BE YOURSELF, share your thoughts and expertise, showcase your value as well as receive huge value, advice and resources to grow your business.

Our next call is this Monday, March 26th from 4:30 – 5:30 pm PST.(scroll down for all the benefits)This is an amazing group just for YOU! Here’s a pic of our last call end of February, and we’ve already doubled in size!

It’s all about masterminding, getting answers to your questions – live time, whenever they come up. I don’t want you to be slowed down ever in your business by not knowing what to do, how to do it, or where to turn.

The International Entrepreneur Network (IEN) is the ONE community that will be that ALL-IN-ONE resource for you.

Regardless if you’re in other programs, have other mentors, masterminds or are involved in other business or self development communities… for the price of ONE Starbucks coffee pretty much every single month you could receive sooooo much value, connections and awesome ideas even to help you start up, grow, market and monetize your business.

Frankly, my Live Big Mastermind clients pay thousands of dollars to attend our mastermind retreats, events and calls all year long but you won’t have to do that.

The first 200 founding members of the International Entrepreneur Network will only pay $7/month as long as you remain active! PLUS, as soon as we get to that level, I’ll be pulling some of the founding members in to either moderate the facebook group (getting more exposure for YOUR business online) or on the calls (sharing YOUR expertise even more)!

So hurry and sign up here and I’ll count you in!

The Big Question to Ask Yourself

This is a question I ask my clients, event attendees and even the audience from stage or a podcast interview.

What if… something happened in your life that forced you to be unable to work in your business for a couple weeks, how about a couple months?

What if… you could only work part time instead of all the time?

What would happen to your income, your clients, your business?

Would your business be able to sustain itself? Would the marketing and sales continue? Would things get done that need to get done so that you could pay your bills?

If you have a good team of people, it’s possible that you might be ok. Luckily I’ve built in at least a good enough team of assistants to make sure the marketing is still running, the communication can still go out to clients and my community and someone can step in and get a lot of things done if need be.

But it wasn’t always that way. I’ve been alone in my business before too, luckily not a lot of “life stuff” happened during those years.

All the unfortunate things that have happened to me that have caused me to lose time working and/or could have affected my earning potential, have happened when I already had the team and the systems in place.

But this is one of the biggest mistakes I see entrepreneurs making… they don’t prepare for the “WHAT IF” soon enough.

You never know when:

  • Someone in your life will get ill, hurt or die and YOU have to step in to help them or the situation.
  • YOU might have something go wrong and need help or be “out for the count” so to speak.
  • Unexpected career changes happen
  • Life happens – birth, fall, death

Just today in fact, I’m shocked by two pretty young souls who were taken from us (or left). One pretty prominent guy here in the city I live in just committed suicide this past weekend, not sure what day, but Jason saw it on Facebook and he knew the guy. I feel so bad for his family. Then today I found out a friend of mine in LA died from cancer late yesterday, she was so young. I just posted a pic of us on my Facebook… Isn’t it crazy?

You just never know. Life happens. Death happens. Crazy crap happens too.

You have to be prepared in your business with the right funnels, marketing, systems and team, you just have to be.

I LOVE helping people with these things and getting you all organized, set up and systematized, more automated and super clear on what you’re doing so you don’t have to stress in case something (anything) happens around you.

Wanna chat sometime soon about what could be missing in your business?

If it could be POSSIBLE that there are some “missing pieces” to YOUR sales process then why not “TRY ME OUT”!

Let me help you figure out what those are for you (sooner than later)?

Here are 3 options – PICK ONE!

Today I’m sharing a couple of important tips in this episode of “Ideas I Get While in the Shower”.

These are things that I thought about today – things that I have to make sure are done too!  I want to make sure you are aware and not neglecting things you have to pay attention to.

The two things I want to talk to you about today is your website and your email marketing.

    1. Your Website  –  this is your most important marketing tool but many business owners are not using it effectively.  Also, you have to keep your website updated, especially if it’s a WordPress website.  If you haven’t looked at the back end of your website for a while, you really should do that soon!  It’s critical.
    2. Your Email Marketing  – Sure you need forms on your website but there are so many bots that spammers use to scrap email addresses these day.  You don’t want Spammers on your email list. Many people are getting email subscribers in their list that are obviously spammers.

Listen to the video below to learn more about keeping these tools updated when I share my “Ideas I Get While in the Shower – Episode 2”

Keeping your systems updated is critical to your business.  Do you have systems in place yet to help you automate your business?   Come talk with me about this and more in a complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: AskKat.biz

I’m sharing tips today about how to do quick video tips for your business. They can be like the Video Biz Tips I share with you. Or your videos can be another income stream for you.

There are so many people in business who are NOT doing video yet and I’m urging you to get started NOW! It’s past time for you to embrace video. This post is definitely for you.

If you are already doing video in your business, these video biz tips may still be helpful to you because as you know, it’s not always easy to come up with things to talk about.

First of all, you need to get past the notion that you have to wait until you have everything in place and it’s just right. You can video, off the cuff. I regularly get many revenue producing ideas for myself, my clients, and my mastermind members. And, just the other day, I did a video to share some of the ideas I had while in the shower.

Video can be used to share info and tips. It can also be used as a revenue producing resource. If there is something you know or know how to do and you can teach others, why not record it on video and create a program or online course.

Video is an AMAZING resource. It’s free to use for marketing purposes – well it is right now.

Click the video below to hear more tips and ideas about “What to Share on YOUR Video Tips!”

Are you on my email list? I don’t send a lot of emails, but when I do send them, I share a couple of tips that I think you will be interested in. Make sure you get on my email list, if you’re not already, because I’ve created a new program that will be starting soon and I’ll be sharing the info to those who are paying attention to my emails. It’s an online course where you’ll learn a lot of revenue generating tips, most of them are online. You’ll learn how to reach more people without working so hard.

Go to Jumpstart Your Marketing.com and sign up for the FREE Biz Kit. You’ll get some great tips with that kit but you will also get access to sign up for these affordable programs when I launch them.

Looking forward to talking to you soon!

Most people don’t do enough follow up and those people are missing out on Thousands and Thousands of Dollars! You need to start learning a system to improve your Follow up and to attract more people from the networking events you attend.

4 Ways to follow up Events & Speaking GigsIf you are going to spend time at a networking event, if you speak at a networking event, or if you are an exhibitor or a sponsor at a networking event and you have a display table, you have to make the effort to maximize your return of your investment of time and money to be at that event. You want to capture as many leads as possible.

I’m listing these types of LEADS into 3 categories as follows:

  • Hot Leads – you want to capture as many HOT leads as possible. You want to talk with the 3 or 4 people who want to book you for a speaking event or hire you. Follow up with them FIRST!
  • Warm Leads – these are the people who will likely buy from you or book you as a speaker within the next 6 months to a year.
  • Cold Leads – are the ones who might start watching for your emails and learning from you. Something in their life may shift and they will want to hire you. This can take from 1 to 5 years or more to convert these prospects into buyers.

When following up, you CANNOT rely solely on your email marketing these days. Some people think they only have to put these prospects on an email list. They are WRONG and you have to be careful not to spam people – get more information on this in the video. You need to start putting your mailing address on your business card as well as your phone number, your email list and website information. This is why…

There are 4 Methods of Follow Up:

  • Email – your digital newsletter and other email communication that relates specifically to them.
  • Phone – remind them you sent an email with a freebie they were looking for.
  • Direct Mail – send them a note that says, “It was great to meet you, let’s have a phone conversation so I can learn more about you.”
  • Social Media – send a message to them to check their email for what you sent to them.

You have to approach your follow up marketing in different ways. Why? Because people are busy, they are as busy as you are! So make sure you are following up in those 4 different ways after every event. Get your system organized NOW!

Check out the video below for more detail about these 4 strategies to Follow Up From Live Events & Speaking Gigs!

Video Biz Tip: 4 Ways to Follow Up From Live Events & Speaking Gigs !

I’m sharing with you today some quick business tips about Tradeshows and doing Table Displays at Expos and Events.

tradeshows - make money - get leadsThese are tips that will help you at tradeshows, expos, and events, whether you have 20 people attending and you have a table in the room or whether you are doing a full conference expo and there are rows of vendors.

I’ve been talking to a few of my clients on this specific topic and I’ve found that they are unprepared for the events they have coming up.  Because I’ve been working on this with them, I wanted to share tips with you!

There are SO many things to think about doing – BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER an Event.

 BEFORE THE EVENT:

  • See if there is a Facebook, LinkedIn or Google + Page for the event. Start networking before the event.  Start building relationships in advance.

DURING THE EVENT:

  • Make sure you have a strategy to get in front of as many people as possible.  HINT: Some of the Vendors might need you too!

AFTER THE EVENT:

  • There is SO MUCH follow up to do after the event! I have a strategy for you for that!

 

Check out the video below for more detail about these strategies to Make More Money & Get Leads from Tradeshows!

Video Biz Tip: Make More Money & Get Leads from Tradeshows!

My Tradeshow Networking Toolkit outlines everything you need to know! I highly recommend it because there are so many things you are probably NOT doing that you NEED to do to maximize your ROI from your Tradeshow Displays and Exhibitor/Vendor Tables at Events. Just go to Jumpstartyourmarketing.com/products/tradeshow to see all of the benefits you receive.

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