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.
  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)

My new book, “Jumpstart Your ________” is launching today!!!

This is a great book for anyone who wants to know how to jumpstart any area of your life, health, business, career, spirituality, mindset, motivation and so much more!  It’s a compilation of stories and comprehensive strategies from 26 authors including me.

I’ve written several books in my life but compiling this book has been one of my BIG goals this year.  I’m so thrilled to bring these authors together in this book!

From conversations with hundreds of business owners and entrepreneurs, I’ve found that most business professionals have a goal to help others in one way or another.   And I’ve learned that these are people who have helped others jump start something.  Health coaches help others learn about nutrition and fitness to build good health habits.  Relationship coaches help others jump start their love life, their marriage or the relationship with themselves.

And, business coaches, like myself, help others jump start their business or their marketing and sales to help you be more successful in their business.

The authors have collaborated on this book and they are experts in their industry and in what they teach.  Our goal is to provide a book showing you how and why you will want to consider jump starting many of the areas that are covered in this book.

If you enjoy one or more of these chapters in the book, I encourage you to reach out and connect with the author.  Trust me, they WANT to know if they can help you further.

And keep this book handy for reference in the future.  In a couple of years you may find you need help with a different area of your life or business, if not right now.

I’m so excited it’s finally out and we are trying to hit the best-seller list today … WILL YOU HELP ME? 

PLEASE GO BUY YOUR COPY of the book, “Jumpstart Your _____”, today, December 11, 2018, available on Amazon/Kindle for just $1.99 – TODAY ONLY! CLICK HERE –>> https://tinyurl.com/JSYB-US (This is the link for people in US, if you are in a different country, please see the links below, thank you!)

Michele PW effective emailsI thought you might enjoy this Guest blog post about creating effective email that is by my friend Michele PW, who is a copywriting expert and author:

In today’s world—the world of building businesses online—most entrepreneurs understand that building an email list is extremely important.  An email list is one of the best ways to build your business because it gives you the opportunity to connect with potential buyers on a personal, authentic level.

Done right, an email list can supercharge your business results.

But (you knew that was coming, right?) an effective email is only as effective as your open and click-through rates.

If nobody’s opening your emails, and nobody’s clicking on the links you put in them, then your email list is not actually working to build your business.

And that can be discouraging.

It takes lots of time, energy, mental power, and money to build a list and to write content regularly.

So today, I’m going to share six of my favorite tips for writing an effective email that connects and converts.

Tip 1. Make Sure Your Emails Are Mobile-Friendly.

I know. It sounds pretty obvious. Also, emails not being mobile-friendly doesn’t really sound like a deal-breaker, right? Wrong.

Here’s the thing: an increasing number of studies and statistics show that a growing number of people use phones and tablets to shop (not computers). In fact, one of the reports I read said that up to 70% of sales happen on phones or tablets.

If your emails look “off” or load improperly and aren’t easy to read, your readers are going to click “delete,” period.

So here are some mobile-friendly-related considerations to make as you create and compose your emails:

Whether to use a banner. Recently, I’ve noticed that entrepreneurs see better conversion rates when they do not use a banner.

The user experience: technically. People reading on teeny tiny mobile devices are more likely to skim than people who read on computers. Make it easy for people to consume your emails by incorporating white space, shorter paragraphs, and shorter sentences.

The user experience: emotionally. Be sure to think about how your subscribers feel when they get your email. They’re living, breathing, busy people, so give them something worthwhile.

Tip 2. Make Your Emails Easy-to-Read and Understand.

As I mentioned above, your ideal prospects are likely skimming your email. That being said, is it easy for them to follow what you’re saying? Are you using words they quickly and easily understand?

Are you making them think too hard?

Of course, I’m not saying you should “dumb down” your message. But you should also be sure to use language that your ideal prospects use (not jargon from your industry).

On another note, be crystal clear about which action you want your readers to take. Set links apart so readers know exactly where to click. If it’s not crystal clear, your readers likely won’t take action at all.

One of my favorite tips for creating a crystal clear call to action is to start with the end in mind. Before you even start writing the email, be clear in your own mind about which action you want readers to take—whether it’s to enroll in your new course, buy your book, or read your newest blog post.

Building your email that call to action is a great way to make sure you’ve just created an effective email. And don’t forget to keep it simple!

Tip 3. Connect with Your Ideal Prospects.

Your community is unique. It’s important to ensure you are connecting with the members of your community on a personal level.

Here are a couple of examples:

I’m on a list where the business owner writes very long emails a few times each week. To be honest, although I’m seeing better conversion rates with shorter emails, this entrepreneur’s emails are entertaining—a great mix of content and stories from his life.

And, they always include some kind of offer at the end.

I’d typically caution entrepreneurs against sending out too many sales emails, but this particular business owner has it nailed: I am certain he gets a lot of email opens and a lot of click-throughs because his emails are informative and entertaining!

One of my clients has had a great response from shorter, punchier emails that have a kind of “hook.” She’s often directing people to read her blog posts, and she makes her emails short and sweet and to the point. Although this effort is the opposite of the one I explained in the first example, it works!

It’s all about knowing what your ideal prospects want from you.

Tip 4. Make Your Emails Personal.

The reason email works so well is that it is personal by nature. Your communication is like a letter to each of your community members. So when you’re writing an email, pretend you’re writing a letter to one specific person. When you master this, each of your ideal prospects will feel like you’ve written specifically to him or her.

When they get the sense that you’ve taken the time and energy to focus on them and write something that matters to them, they’ll reward you by opening and reading your emails.

Tip 5. Write Great Subject Lines.

Think about it: when you’re looking at that long list of emails in your inbox, you’re filtering: deciding which ones you’ll trash immediately, which ones you’ll read later, and which ones you’ll read right away. How do you make those decisions? You look at the subject lines. So, what makes subject lines great, or effective?

Being specific. If you have a deadline coming up, or a webinar showing on a certain date, include that in your subject line.

Being a little “off-the-wall” or invoking curiosity. Some examples are, “Winter is coming,” or, “It worked … kind of.”

Mixing it up. If, in most cases, you write straightforward subject lines, try throwing in a few “off-the-wall” subject lines every few emails. Or, if you typically write mysterious subject lines, throw in a few straightforward subject lines here and there. This may help you cut through the email clutter.

Tip 6. Write Powerful PS’s.

Did you know that it’s extremely common for a reader to skip from the top of an email straight to the PS? In fact, the PS is known to be the second-most-commonly-read element in an email (behind the subject line). So this is “hot real estate” in your emails! There are several different ways to write a powerful PS — to get you started, I’ve included a few email writing tips below:

Address an objection. The most common objections people have when buying your product or service are time and money. They’re not sure whether they can afford the time or financial investment. So, think about what you can say to overcome those objections.

Share one of your clients’ real-life success stories. Whether you summarize the story in your own words, or insert a quote from one of your clients, this is a powerful way to illustrate that you’re helping people get great results.

Position the reader’s choice about whether to invest with you as a choice to remain in their current situation, or to move forward and get the results you can provide them.

Recap a juicy benefit of the product or service you’re selling. For example, set it up as an “imagine” statement: “Imagine finally knowing exactly what to do when it comes to your marketing, rather than feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of what to do, when.”

In Conclusion …

I think the best part about writing effective emails is that it’s fun! It’s fun to be yourself, share with your community, and build relationships that thrive as your business does.

Is your Funnel working as it should?  Is it generating enough interest to generate the leads you need?  If you are struggling to create an effective sales funnel because you don’t know how to start constructing it, this post and video are definitely for you!

This post and the video are designed for entrepreneurs, small business owners, independent contractors and anyone who needs to meet a lot of people and build relationships in order to promote and increase your business. Because marketing these days is useless without working at building the relationships with your clients, prospects, referral sources and contacts. Making offers is a key component to building those relationships. You can do this if you’re a speaker or doing a speaking presentation or not.

So What’s in your funnel? What are YOU Selling?

Here are 5 Levels of What (could and should be) in Your Marketing or Product Funnel Plus What IS a Funnel?

1. The “Freebie” – what are you giving away on your website or in person so you can capture people’s contact information so that you can continue to market to them? You’ve GOT to do this one for sure and it doesn’t have to be a FREE consultation! Try to give something away that your target market will definitely want but it doesn’t have to take your time, make it more automated instead.

2. The “Easy Yes Offer” or “Try Me Out” Offer – This is your low-level offering. Can you record a free CD, write an ebook, offer a webinar, prepare an ecourse? These are all lower level products or programs that you can create once then sell over and over again taking no more time (time being the key word on a low-level offering). Easy Yes Offers can also be your time if the goal is to have conversations with prospects in order to have them connect and trust you to enroll in higher end programs. You can give and receive a lot of value in consults where you charge a small introductory fee.

3. The “Do-It-Yourself” – This is the larger, more beefy product offering that people can buy and work through at their own pace. It could be your signature service packaged into a home study kit for example like I plan on doing with my Love and Money Business Summit and that I’ve already done with my JumpStart Your Marketing(TM) System.

4. The “I’m All In” – This is for very interested and committed prospects who want more of YOU. They want to get your advice personally maybe or work with you 1on1, come to an event or even pay you for your high end programs or services. There are fewer people who will commit to these types of offerings however if priced right, you don’t need that many, nor can you usually handle that many.

5. The “Whole Enchilada” – This is for the type of customer who simply LOVES YOU and loves what you do, teach or sell and will buy anything and everything you offer or promote. They are your ‘ideal client’, I’d imagine.

Click here to view the video and hear more about “5 Stages of Your Funnel – What are YOU Selling”.

Finally you have to practice, test and practice and test, over and over again and different audiences might require different easy yes offers. You may have to alter them, change them and revise them along the way. You’ll know when you have that easy yes offer, people will be throwing cash or their credit cards in your face or orders will come in like crazy online!

Join me at my next live training workshop where we’re going to get you super clear on what you’re selling and offering. Which of these do YOU need? How many do you need to sell to make your goals? And what platforms will you do that on, how will you get those clients and more.

This live training workshop is called “Speaker Success Bootcamp”,  scheduled for June 14, 15, 16, 2018 in Sacramento Ca – find out all the details and sign up now at www.JumpstartSpeakerEvent.com!

Are you avoiding doing Video and Live Streaming?

I have some clients who are not yet doing video or livestreaming and they really need to take advantage of this powerful medium.  I invited the Video Queen, Monique Johnson to join me in a recent Facebook Live to talk about Everything Video but that video has since expired now. But read on for some quick tips and then make sure you follow me on Facebook as well as Monique here.

As you know, networking is important for the growth of your business, but let’s face it – you are not going to be able to reach as many people at going to networking events as you can when you are broadcasting Live or with a Video online. When you appear on video or a Facebook Live, it’s like an opportunity to reach (or to network) with many more people who are from several geographic areas, not only those who are in your local area.

When you are broadcasting or doing a video online, it’s like you’re attending a networking event and you are the featured speaker!

I met my friend, Monique Johnson, at an event where we were both speaking and her presentation blew me away.  She is  an expert in Video Production and in using Video and broadcasting Live.  Monique helps her clients and students get more clients by showing them how to use and harness the power of Social Video.

I got together with Monique on a Facebook Live recently to discuss “Everything Video”.  Monique shared several great tips about Live Videos and stressed the importance of repurposing your video or Live content on your social media platforms.  Here are a few of Monique’s tips that we cover in this broadcast:

  • It’s important that your Live Videos don’t die on the platform you broadcasted them on – Repurpose them.
  • Each platform has different limits for Video and Live streaming.  What you are publishing YouTube isn’t the same as what you will be publishing on Instagram.
  • If your Video is longer than the length the platform you want to share it on will allow, you simply edit it to show shorter videos like snippets, teasers, and highlights.
  • You don’t have to invest in a lot of expensive equipment to get started.  A smartphone is all you need.

Do you know all of the broadcast limit of each social media platform?

If you missed our Facebook Live, go follow us online and catch the next one!

Be sure to check out Monique’s Group to learn more about creating Videos and Live Streams for your business.

Come on! It’s YOUR Time to shine online!!

Business Owner: Are you getting what you need in a Mentor or Programs you’ve invested in?

Are you an entrepreneur who has invested in programs, events, and masterminds that haven’t really gotten you to where you really need to be yet in your business?

Are you wondering why that is?   What could you be doing wrong?  Were they just the wrong programs at the wrong time?

So, what’s next for you?  You’ve got to keep going right?

You don’t want to go back and get a JOB… so what’s next for you?

What I’ve found over the last 15 years of business coaching with thousands of entrepreneurs is that most of us have invested in the WRONG thing every once in a while and don’t get what we need.

Unfortunately that’s pretty normal. It sucks but it happens!

The key is to pick yourself back up from that, don’t get jaded and go invest in the NEXT THING!  Hopefully this time, the thing that will really help you with what you need to do NEXT, RIGHT NOW.

One of the things I’m really good at is helping entrepreneurs like YOU determine what IS your next move. What you DO NEED to do next to grow your business.

They don’t just call me the Jumpstart Your Biz Coach for nothing you know… I know how to laser in and focus on what is the single most important for YOU to be spending your time on right now to get you to create a smooth-running, moneymaking business. Plain and simple.

I don’t recommend any ONE thing to all however, it’s not a cookie cutter approach. I’m not going to tell everyone to do THIS xyz thing, because that doesn’t work.

You NEED A CUSTOM APPROACH and plan.

I can help you with that but you have to get over the fact that you need to yet again… invest in yourself and your business.

You have to know that you will ALWAYS have to continue investing in yourself and your business. There is no way to do and learn all there is to do and learn on your own for free; it’s not possible, even with youtube. 😉

Click here to view the video and hear more about how to get Just What You Need.

 

Although I’ve invited you to listen to this video, I recommend that you do more than just listen.  Come talk with me.  Let me see what I can do to help set you on THE RIGHT PATH to your successful, and consistently profitable business, shall we? Just go to www.AskKat.biz to schedule a complimentary Strategy Session with me.

Come on! It’s YOUR Time to shine!!

I recently shared this broadcast on Facebook Live about Pricing for Profits. The intent of this broadcast was to share some great content about Pricing your Products, Services, and Programs with my guest, Carrie Greene of Carrie Greene Coaching. Carrie was ready to join us but, due to technical difficulties on my part, was unable to log into the broadcast. We’ll try to reschedule soon, hopefully April.

And yes, you’ll quickly notice that I’m sick when you start viewing this video but I’m sharing a lot of valuable tips and strategies here about Pricing your Products, Services and Programs. So I’m encouraging you to stay tuned!

Let’s dive right into Strategy!

First, I recommend you offer a variety of products or services with different levels of pricing.

Let me explain:

You should have a “low-end”, Easy YES offer. This is something that is so good that people say YES & pay you on the spot! Your offer must be crystal clear and it’s best if it’s priced under $100. Depending on the what you are offering, the price could be under $200.   The point of the Easy YES offer is to give prospects a way to try you out, to try out what you are offering and to see what it’s like to work with you.

You should have additional offerings (products, programs, or services) with price points higher than your Easy YES offer and lower than your “high-end” Program or Services.

You also need to create a Signature Product, Program, or Service if you don’t already have one. This is something you’ve created and it’s easily relatable to your Brand.

So are you charging what you are WORTH? Is there a Mindset issue that blocking you from raising your rates so you can continue to offer value to your clients while charging what you are really worth? You can structure your programs, services and your prices – It’s Your Business.

To recap, there are several steps that go into Pricing your Products,, Programs, and Services so YOU can make a profit. From brainstorming about ways to deliver the program or product you’re creating, and what is included in the offer to determining the value, what you will charge and how you will sell it.

And finally, there are Sales Conversations that you’ll need to have and Sales Conversations is a topic that I LOVE to coach my clients on for example, what to do, what to say, and navigating objections that WILL come up.

These topics and so many others to help you make more money in your Business will be covered at my Love & Money LIVE! event coming up in a few days. Registration closes on Saturday, March 31st. Head over to www.loveandmoneylive.com to take a look at everything we will cover.

I recently had a discussion with The Vibrant Visionary, Audra Grady, about Hosting Your Own Live Events and what it really takes to create, host and lead successful events in your business!

As many of you know, I love hosting the smaller live events where I can really connect with my audience. My audience gets to see more of me and get more from me. Audra also shared what she sees as benefits for this style of events too.

There are a couple of really great business reasons to host your own events and we discuss them in this broadcast. There’s a common misconception that you can make a lot of money off of the ticket sales, which is not the norm. Audra and I discuss what you need to do to make your live event a success without losing money.

This can be a lucrative business model, if you already have your programs in place. But I’ve find that many entrepreneurs really need some training before they start the process of planning their events.

There are many moving parts when you decide you are going to host live events. Tune into the broadcast to learn:

    • The single most important thing you want to do BEFORE you plan your event.
    • What’s possible but also what’s probable for the number of people you may attract.
    • Some fun ways to ENGAGE your audience so they don’t fizzle out in the middle or end of your event.

    To listen to all of the tips and strategies we shared, go to the replay of our Live broadcast on Facebook, either on my Profile or on Audra Grady’s. And if you are interested in taking advantage of the DISCOUNT I’m offering in this broadcast, you need to place the discount code in your comment on this Facebook Live Broadcast post, on either my Facebook Profile or on Audra’s.

Here’s To Your Success!
