Are you ready to BLAB?

Yes, I do mean talking….it’s Blab.im, it’s one of the newest online social platforms out there and it’s FREE!

I’ve been checking it out this last month or so and believe me….I’m BEHIND, there are so many friends of mine and others doing some BIG Things already on BLAB!

I decided one day just to try it out so I went online, clicked around to the blabs that were “on air” at the moment and IN I WAS! I didn’t know that everyone in the “chat room” could see everyone who joins but it was fun.  I watched for a bit, fascinated at what you were allowed to do….all for free!

So the next time I went into one of my friend’s blabs and she brought me on video (you never have to be on video if you don’t want to be, you can just watch and listen or type in the chat area). That was fun to interact live!

So that’s when I said I was just going to do one….

My first one was pretty good actually, we had participants who actually needed some advice for their business. You can watch the FIRST BLAB I did here now.

So today I “scheduled” a blab and marketed it and everything….but not a lot of people came. They sort of come in and out like an open house party you might hold! It was still fun though. You can Click the video image to watch today’s blab now.

 

Next time I’m going to schedule the Blab but also have a clear strategy for what we’ll talk about plus I’ll bring in a Co-Host. A few people recommend doing that just in case there are technical difficulties but also so you have someone to talk to until others show up!

YOU CAN DO A BLAB TOO!

Subscribe to my Blab feed and you’ll get notices when I do another one and I’d love you to show up and contribute!  SUBSCRIBE HERE NOW. Just click to FOLLOW ME (it’s owned by Twitter).

 

Here’s to your Success!

Successful people have lots of energy – did you know that?

That’s something they all have in common it seems. They’re not lethargic, lazy or run down. They take care of themselves, their minds and their bodies. (Of course they can afford it right?)

It’s not easy taking time out of building your business to invest that time in yourself, self-development or health and fitness but we need to right? We only have the ONE body after all!

In this video today, I’m continuing a 4 week Biz Tip Series from a recent conference that was amazing!

Check out when their next conference is here:  http://www.1LifeFullyLived.org

One of the speakers, Rock Thomas, gave some tips I’m sharing with you in this video today about some habits of highly successful people and entrepreneurs!

I know, I’m implementing some of this stuff even more now with his reminder – listen in!

If you’re a small business owner looking to grow your business fast, then you want to get networking! Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers.

This is the third post in the series on Networking – make sure you go read the last two posts and watch their corresponding video tips to know how to best prepare before a networking event and what to do to maximize your time during a networking event.

Networking continues to be one of my BEST sources of lead generation even now, 12 years into my business. I highly recommend it to ALL of my clients as well as their #1 marketing strategy.

But I’ve ONLY been as successful with networking as I have because I developed an EXTENSIVE and consistent follow up system! At first I had no idea that what I was doing was really a “system” or process that I did over and over again. when I realized that I put it all into a format so I didn’t have to continue recreating the wheel so to speak every time I went to an event.

And keep in mind that I follow up via email but also by mail (yes, U.S. mail), phone and now on social media sites too for some people. Email follow up these days, although free to do, is so NOT ENOUGH! Email is just not as effective as it used to be. Sorry to tell you this but you have to do MORE. Which is why you want templates, scripts and a clear system so it gets done.

Check out my Ultimate Marketing Follow Up System for more info on how you can get this!

This week’s post is video #3 (what to do AFTER the event) and the second half of my top 10 tips.

Kat’s Top 20 Networking Tips (the second 10)

  1. Don’t Feature Dump when talking to people (don’t list all your services or benefits while talking), find out what the customer/person wants or needs by asking questions first and getting them talking – LISTEN!
  2. Never “lead” with a card when you enter a room, “leave” the card or wait until someone asks you for your card.  Don’t presume everyone wants your card.  If they don’t want it, they won’t do anything with it anyways so why waste it on them?
  3. Go by to follow up with those people in person who you think could be good referral sources or customers for you and/or mail them your brochure and card too.
  4. 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 and always slip your card and brochure into the gift.  (Don’t offer as a prize a certain dollar amount or discount off your product or service, it’s not a gift then, it’s only a discount.)
  5. Offer to give a referral discount or gift to those current customers or networking contacts that refer their friends (need to brainstorm ideas on incentives and “what’s in it for them” – maybe $100 referral fee depending on your price point or a $5 Starbucks gift card?)
  6. Make arrangements with other businesses to offer their products or services to your clients/contacts for free exposure for them while allowing you to give gifts to your clients.
  7. Do anything and everything you can to get noticed
  8. Every person you network with, follow up by sending them a note, flyer or letter about how you would like to work with them and how you can help each other.  Every person you meet with about your service, send them a thank you card right away.  You want to make every relationship a WIN-WIN.
  9. Follow up on every lead no matter what within 48 hours by phone, fax or email, whichever works best for THEM.
  10. Try to help everyone you meet by referring people to their business, they will remember you and do the same for you.

The key is to just get started. Find a few events and get out there! 

I also did a 3 part Video Series on the topic of Networking, here is video #3:

 

HERE ARE 3 ACTION STEPS YOU CAN TAKE NOW TO LEARN HOW TO ADD MORE NETWORKING TO YOUR MARKETING PLAN:

  1. Grab Kat’s Networking Tradeshow Tool Kit for $57 and develop a better process for more prospects from or at events – go to https://www.jumpstartyourmarketing.com/product-tradeshow.
  2. Grab Kat’s Ultimate Marketing Follow Up System – complete with audio trainings, hundreds of pages of email templates, direct mail examples, scripts and so much more for $197 plus many bonuses too – go to www.JumpstartYourFollowUp.com
  3. Grab a FREE COPY of her Entrepreneurs Success Kit now + 3 other Free Gifts – Sign up at www.JumpstartYourMarketing.com/freegifts.

 

3.  Now, if you want more specific examples, steps and samples of ways to do all this then you really want to attend my next 3 ½ day Jumpstart Your Marketing® & Sales Summit where I lay out everything you need to do to market online and offline in many different ways and for many different types of businesses too.

I’m so excited …I’m going to be on TV again! This time sharing Online Dating Tips! 

Monday, August 18th (yes today!) 

On the show in Sacramento, CA called Sac & Co. short for Sacramento & Company.

The video image to the right is from the segment a month ago on the show where I talked about my book, Love Yourself Successful.

I talked about the topic of Not Settling – in your life, your love life, with your dreams & your business/career.

This time, they’re bringing me in to talk about my Sorting System for Online Dating to Help you Find the Man/Woman of Your Dreams!

Yes, I know, a little off topic from my regular business/marketing tips and videos. But this personal stuff is SUCH a big part of me, who I am, how I became who I am today and how happy I am too because I chose to work on myself and my relationships pretty heavily during my business.

So listen in live if you’re local from 11:30 am – Noon PST tomorrow, Aug 18th.

If you can’t listen live or aren’t local, go to www.SacandCo.net and I’ll post the recording when I have it too.

 

One thing I talked about a month ago when I got on this show is how to get publicity locally (or nationally) for yourself too!

Go read the blog post I did about Getting Free Publicity here!

 

Want to know MORE about how to get free publicity for yourself and your business OR about 19 other marketing strategies that are Free or Low Cost?

If you’re a small business owner looking to grow your business fast, then you want to get networking! Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Sure you can network online too but you most likely won’t gain the trust and credibility as fast as you will when you meet your prospects in person, face-to-face.

Networking continues to be one of my BEST sources of lead generation even now, 12 years into my business. I highly recommend it to ALL of my clients as well as their #1 marketing strategy.

I’m not “too good” to network and go to some chicken dinner either like some coaches who’ve been in business as long as I have.

It’s all about building relationships and connecting with more of the right people. prospects and referral sources. That’s what will help you grow your business FAST!

Due to my extensive networking background, I’ve done a few videos lately on what to do before, during and after a networking event plus I put together a list of my Top 20 Networking Tips too – just for you!

This week’s post is video #2 (during the event) and the top 10 tips, then next week I’ll share video #3 (after an event) and the last 10 tips in my Top 20 List. If you want to read my 6 Steps to Networking post or watch video #1 (before an event) then click here now!

Kat’s Top 20 Networking Tips (the first 10)

  1. Always shake a hand firmly (no fishy handshakes – if you’re not sure how good yours is try it out on someone you trust and ask them)
  2. Look people in the eye, don’t look beyond them or look around when you talk to them
  3. Wear clothes with pockets in them if possible and use one pocket for your cards and one for those you collect at events
  4. Make sure to write notes on the back of every card right away for easy remembering
  5. Practice your 10 sec, 30 sec and 60 sec infomercials because all meetings and events will ask for or warrant different lengths and have different scenarios. Be prepared to change it up a little depending on the audience and remember to stick in a call to action to make them DO SOMETHING.
  6. Get a name badge so people know who you are wherever you go –  mixers, events, the store, etc. (it also adds credibility and professionalism and helps brand your image/logo), don’t rely on stickers.
  7. Build rapport and relationships with the people that you meet when networking, don’t try to sell right off the bat or expect them to use your services that first time they meet you.  People get turned off with pushy people, however don’t forget to slip in a trial close now and then.
  8. Arrive at meetings and events early and be prepared to stay late and meet those people you don’t know yet – meet and get to know EVERYONE! 
  9. Don’t go to something just because you think the speaker will have valuable information for you, go to network and if the speaker turns out to be good, then that’s a bonus.
  10. Bring flyers, brochures and business cards to display or hand out at every meeting just in case it’s appropriate and acceptable to pass them out or put them on display but keep them in your vehicle for easy access so you don’t look too eager (not the biz cards, bring those in – and a pen!)

The key is to just get started. Find a few events and get out there!

The number of people you have in your database is the number of people you have access to market to on a regular basis so your #1 goal in your business should be to build your database and set up a consistent, frequent system for marketing and following up with them.

If this isn’t your #1 goal, you’re missing out on a ton of sales. If you’re not networking (online and in person in some way), you’re missing out on a ton of sales. Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers.

Here is a quick 6 STEP networking and follow up guide for you:

  1. Have you defined your target market? Are you sure? Who is your ideal client?       Describe them.
  2. How many people are in your current database (everyone you know)? I recommend you include everyone you know within your larger database so you can call or mail something to them. However it is not good email etiquette to add just anyone to an email list, you want to make sure you’ve gotten their verbal opt in at least if you met them in person and they didn’t enter a drawing or something. Find out more about how to get the “verbal opt in” in a recent video I did here.
  3. How many people do you want to add to that this year? Do you want to double it?       What’s your goal? You should set a goal or it definitely won’t happen right? Maybe 200-400 subscribers a month? Not everyone you meet will want to get on your list.
  4. Where can you go to build your list where your ideal client is hanging out (brainstorm)?
    1. women’s or business organizations
    2. chamber of commerce events
    3. industry association meetings
    4. membership functions
    5. local or national conferences and workshops – BIG PROSPECT POOL!
    6. online social networking websites, blogs and forums
  5. How to best prepare yourself for networking:
    1. research events and block them on your calendar every month (make sure you’re consistent and go back often to ones that are good)
    2. practice your 10-30-60 second commercials
    3. bring marketing materials, always have them in your car and on hand so you never run out – INCLUDING A WAY TO SIGN A CLIENT UP ON THE SPOT! (order forms!)
    4. arrive on time and allow enough time after for continued networking – don’t rush
    5. be prepared to give to others, ask questions of others and not just talk about yourself
  6. Develop an easy follow up system you can follow each week or delegate it to an assistant so it gets done! Use email, direct mail, phone for sure and connecting on social media sites too.

Networking is just ONE way to market and promote your business to get clients however it can be the fastest path to fast cash other than by speaking which is better.

When I first started my business I went to an average of 14 networking events every single month locally. Then I followed up like crazy in many different ways and I became very top-of-mind with everyone I met.

These days, 12 years into my business, I’m still networking locally although I’m networking nationally as well. I travel to various conferences, workshops and events to speak, exhibit or attend and network. I always make the best use of my time and spend the whole time at the event too rather than just flying in for an appearance and leaving early.

The key is to just get started. Find a few events and get out there!
