One thing that many small business owners definitely don’t do enough of in their business is direct mail. There are many ways to utilize direct mailing something to prospects, clients and even as a cold call piece. You may want to check out this video if you’ve been hesitant to do any direct mail in your business. Then if you want to talk about it and get more ideas for what ELSE to do in your biz and your marketing, go to http://www.AskKat.biz and let’s set up a time to chat!
I’d love to hear your feedback and take aways from the video!
My video topic today is “Using Facebook to Grow Your Business (and Developing Content for you).”
One activity that’s pretty important in building, growing and marketing your business is developing good, relevant content and getting it out there. A lot of entrepreneurs however aren’t sure how to do this or what to say. They get stuck and so they don’t do much of this at all. I like to help clients make it EASY for them to find things to develop content around and/or ways to develop content that can be fun and easy. In this video I give ONE idea on how to do this, take a watch and let me know your thoughts below in the comments! Then I hope you consider attending my next live event to learn more about this and many other marketing strategies to help you grow your business! Go to http://www.LiveBigEvents.com for all the details now.
I want to share with you some special information that I feel is very important. With the obesity rate increasing in the US at an alarming rate, this topic is a timely one.
For starters, did you know that 95% of people who DO lose weight gain it back again once they stop ‘dieting?’ What a sobering statistic! And perhaps worst of all, some people get caught up in what my good friend Linda Allred calls the ‘yo yo’ dieting syndrome – they struggle to lose weight only to gain it back again PLUS a few more pounds, then diet once more, gain even more back – it’s a vicious circle!
Thankfully I’m pleased to announce that there IS an alternative to this pain!
On Thursday, January 30th at 10:00 am PST, 1:00 pm CST, and 2:00 pm EST, my good friend Linda Allred, who is heralded as “THE Bad Habit Breaker/Certified Hypnotist Expert”, will be hosting a special FR*EE teleseminar (by phone) called Why Diet Resolutions Don’t Work: Train Your Brain to Lose Weight!

Most importantly, by utilizing Self-Hypnosis you will learn how to easily and quickly lose and KEEP the weight forever!
If you are ready to discover how to use Self-Hypnosis to:
Train your brain to eliminate the weight you hate and keep it off forever all while still being able to eat the foods you love without feeling deprived
Train your ‘inner critic’ to be your best friend and,
Learn how to love, like and respect yourself…
then this teleseminar is definitely for YOU!

Hi, it’s Katrina Sawa here with a little egg on my face…
You see I made a mistake I probably would never have told my clients to do and of course it didn’t go very well…
What I’m talking about is the fact that I ran a super cool and important promotion during the month of December!
What I realize now after seeing all the statistics of email open rates and clicks was that most of you were WAY TOO BUSY shopping, celebrating or vacationing during December to see what I was doing.
So, I decided to take back what I said about it being over or too late and give you another chance! And that’s just the way it goes in the marketing world frankly, if it doesn’t work the first time out you tweak it, adjust it, evolve it and go again!
It’s time to take charge of your business and finally get serious about all the stuff you need to do to make it more successful, automated, profitable and visible I’m sure you agree.
But are you SURE YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO?
My next live event is April 3, 4, 5, 2014, with a bonus mastermind day onApril 2nd for VIP ticket holders, here in Sacramento, CA and I want you to be there.
My promise to you: My Jumpstart Your Marketing & Sales Summit will be the most comprehensive and content-rich seminar, conference or workshop you will ever attend. It will show you EXACTLY what to do and HOW to do it when it comes to building, growing and marketing your business PLUS how to get really good at selling without being salesy!
Here is the page now to check it out but read on to learn even more about why I think this is the year you need to be here: www.LiveBigEvents.com
Because NONE of you are marketing enough to achieve the goals you have – that’s the truth!
This Special Offer is that you get for FREE –>>
My Love & Money Business System in a box, (home study) when you register for my April event NOW at the VIP level!
I am going to be making this Love & Money Business System UNAVAILABLE and taking it off the shelf after this special is over so this is the last time you’ll get access to this program AND especially for FREE! It’s a full 3 1/2 days of me on video training you about everything from A-Z on how to start up, grow, sell and market your business from one of my previous live events.
The reason I’m giving you THIS PROGRAM as a BIG BONUS right now is because I KNOW YOU NEED THIS INFORMATION NOW, not only in April when the live event is being held. That means that from now throuh April you can literally be working ON the “right things” in your business and your marketing BEFORE you even get to the event where we can then take you to YOUR NEXT LEVEL. Get it?
I personally am not a big fan of resolutions. Every time in the past where I’ve set them, I’ve never seemed to actually accomplish them. I do however, see results from and accomplish most of my goals that I set every year (personal or business).
To me, resolutions are for diets you plan on doing for a couple weeks and that’s it. Other than that, let’s set some clear, actionable and realistic goals for yourself instead why don’t we?
I believe in optimistic, stretch goals but also realistic goals. I’ve had a few mentors in the past suggest I set these huge lofty revenue goals for my business, I’m talking a million dollars or more, when I wasn’t even yet making one hundred thousand. Now that’s ridiculous in my mind. It’s not that a million dollar business isn’t doable but when you aren’t even to the first biggest milestone yet of $100,000, it’s so far from realistic that of course 99.9% of people would fail.
One thing you can do to help you figure out just how much money you could potentially make or bring in this coming year is to crunch the numbers.
This week’s video ezine talks about something I hardly ever talk about publicly, how to market to and get corporate (or larger) clients. I teach this stuff privately with clients who target this market but haven’t done a tips video about it yet…take a listen.
Hot tip: To do outreach to corporations, the process is much longer – so please be prepared for that longer sales process. Sometimes the organization doesn’t make a decision at the time you submit your information – some corporations have a proposal process and they review them once a year or a few times a year. This tactic can be more in depth.
Did you see my last email with the Free New Year’s Gift for you? Time is running out to grab it…
I’m raring to go this week with numerous calls for the free coaching (gift) offer I’m giving right now but I’m leaving for LA mid-next week and when I leave, this gift expires!
I urge you to book your session now….I know hundreds of you could benefit from me just taking a look inside your business even for a few minutes. But we’re doing 30 minute sessions and the people that have done them so far have been amazed at all we’ve covered and amazed at all they’ve been MISSING in their MARKETING!
I hope you had a fantastic New Year and now that we’re in the first full week of January are getting back in the swing of things for your business!
I know it can be tough sometimes to shake the holiday daze but you need to get out of it – come on, let’s go! Scroll down for my video of the week about scheduling in all your to dos.
2 fun things this week I want to share:
1. We rescued a new dog!
It’s been about a year and a half since I had to put my Zeke to sleep and I miss him but it was time we got a new family dog. Meet “Willow” our very sweet 3 year old German Shepherd! She’s been really fun and getting along great so far even though we’ve only had her for 2 days!
2. I have a FREE GIFT for you!
In the spirit of the New Year and all, I was trying to figure out what to do for those of you who really need a little more guidance to jumpstart your year.
One of my mastermind clients and I had the same type of call today in fact which gave me this idea. She said she needed a list of daily tasks that she could do for marketing, sales and growing her business. We outlined about 6-8 things so she could stay focused and targeted with her time each day and didn’t waste a bunch of time doing things that weren’t productive or revenue producing.
So, I’ve opened up a dozen or so spots in the next couple weeks to do these types of “Get Into Action Sessions” with those of you who need this type of support and have never done this kind of call with me before.
If you have done one of these types of sessions before or something similar, I could setup a quick check in call with you if you’re now ready to engage in a coaching option or want to discuss how to work with me.
Want to call in? Dial in: 310-388-9811 with your questions.
