Today I want to talk to you about a topic that’s very important to your business – Lead Generation!

lead generationLead generation includes online and offline lead generation. Do you think about the number of leads you need every month? That a big mistake I see others making – they just aren’t connecting with enough new prospects, new leads every month. They are relying on their current list of people to take action and buy from.

Many business owners are not effective in their lead generation, follow-up and sales. And, they are not making enough money. So you have to start thinking about lead generation and learn to be persistent with your efforts.

Check out the video below for more detail about “Lead Generation Tips for Small Businesses”!

“Lead Generation Tips for Small Businesses”
So you HAVE to generate leads, no matter what business you are in, to make more money in your business.

 

New Business Marketing, Referral Source Marketing and DataBase Marketing are the topics I teach others in my Jumpstart Your Marketing System. So what do you need to add to your marketing plan this year to help you generate more leads?

I have a great Marketing Webinar – it’s Marketing Basics for Consistent Cash Flow. It covers the top 10 marketing strategies that I teach both online and offline. If you are interested, go to: livebigevents.com/webinar-marketingbasics/ 

And while you are on the LiveBigEvents.com website, check out the dates for the upcoming Live Events and plan to attend one!

Wishing You Much Success!

I’m excited to talk to you today about Sales Conversations.

I know, you don’t want to be a salesperson, you don’t want to be “salesy”. But you must have sales conversations in your business – there’s no way around it. Good Luck finding a salesperson who cares as much about your business as you do! Bottom Line – you need to hone your sales skills, no matter what industry or business you are in.

sales conversationsI’ve had years of training and experience in Sales and Marketing – that’s why I can deliver this type of coaching to my clients quickly and effectively. If you are not persistent in delivering information and consistent in asking questions of your prospective clients; if you are not having the sales conversations that you should be, you are missing out on making thousands of dollars.

I have a much longer sales conversation model that I teach to my 1on1 clients and my mastermind group.  But in today’s video, I’m giving you Steps to Effective Sales Conversations, so click the video below, take notes, and start using these methods today! If you are missing ANY of these steps, regardless of the price point of your product or service, you are missing opportunities to make more money.

Check out the video below for more detail about my “11 Steps to Effective Sales Conversations”!

“11 Steps to Effective Sales Conversations”
Now you have enough information to have effective Sales Conversations!

There’s so much more we should talk about, including Sales Conversations. I’d love to invite you to my next event, Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend, on March 31st, April 1st & 2nd, 2017 in Sacramento, CA.  jumpstart your biz in a weekendInformation about this and all of my events throughout the year can be found at LiveBigEvents.com.

I’m here today to talk to you about something to move you FORWARD in your business FAST; something that I love to talk about and do…it’s a Vision Board and other ways to create a nurturing, inspiring environment for your Business.

create nurturing inspiring environmentI construct my Vision Boards with Business on one side and Personal on the other. My BIG GOALS are in the middle. My big goals are usually my big money goals for the year – and they are all calculated. What do I mean by that? I determine how many speaking gigs I want for the year, how many people I want at my programs and live events and so on. Think about your BIG GOALS as the number of people you want to serve for the year – then you can easily break those down to monthly goals, weekly goals, and so on.

The thing I love most about Vision Boards is that they are so inspiring! I keep mine where I see it most every day along with pictures of my events, my mastermind group, and other important things going on in my life. I love mentoring and training people so I use those things to inspire me. The point is for you to use things, graphics, pictures of the things you love and love to do to inspire YOU!

Also, a great source of inspiration is your office space. You need a nurturing office space that reminds you daily of what you LOVE. I encourage you to do what you can to configure your office space to INSPIRE YOU! My office design is structured to best inspire me. As you are watching the video, you’ll find out what my LIVE BIG stands for…something that inspires me every day. So just get CREATIVE with your space and your environment!

Check out the video below for more detail about Creating a Nurturing, Inspiring Environment for Business!

Creating a Nurturing, Inspiring Environment for Business!

I’m involved in a lot and I do a lot but it’s my passion! I have plenty to do but it doesn’t have to be grueling hard. It requires passion to serve. So get inspired so you can stay focused every day.

Guest article by: Louise Crooks, who appeared on the JumpStartYourBusinessNow Radio Show with host Katrina Sawa today, October 29th, 2013 at 11:00 am PST. Listen to the interview by clicking here.

There has been a lot of confusing marketing going on about niching recently in the coaching community, which might have gotten you a bit befuddled.

I want to put the record straight, and give you a few tips too!

Ultimately what any coach or healer wants, and I hope I’m speaking for you, is to help as many clients as possible and have a thriving practice.  Am I right?

Here is the truth:  whether you call it target market, niche or ideal client – the reality is that you need a focus coaching a group of people with specific challenges in common, all wanting the same thing.   And if you’re aligned with their values, spirituality or political persuasion well that is just peachy.

Ok I’m being a bit irreverent but I’m a bit ticked off with all this double speak confusing the life out of coaches when it comes to creating a niche.  When in fact it’s pivotal to your success.

One of the cornerstones to building a successful practice is to choose that special group of people you want to work with.

Why?   Because when you focus on them and their specific challenges and you start speaking directly to them in language that they can understand, they will without hesitation raise their hand and say ‘Jane/John knows exactly what I’m going through, and she /he is the person to help me’. 

Here are some examples:

  • ‘I’m a coach working with women going through divorce , wanting to get through the rollercoaster ride in one piece with the possibility of happiness again.
  • I’m a corporate coach working with middle managers who are new to management and making a hash of it –  helping them to communicate effectively with their team, earn their respect, and produce great results.
  • I’m a birthing hypnotherapist and  I help pregnant women prepare for giving birth confidently without meds, pain or fear.
  • I’m a relationship  coach helping men in mid-life build their confidence and find their  2nd time round soulmate.
  • I’m a nutritionist helping Moms deal with children who have severe allergies, and finding solutions through food and ditching prescription meds.

It’s a little different to ‘I’m a coach, and I help women move from where they are now to where they want to be’.   Or ‘I’m a hypnotherapist and I help people deal with stress, smoking cessation, weight-loss, phobias  and on and on.’   

The more general and unspecific you are about the group of people you’re focusing on, their challenges and the solution they want, the less likely people will work with you. You’ll be seen as a ‘Jack of all Trades, Master of None’.   It’s really as simple as that. Because you’re not connecting or creating trust.

Here are a couple tips to help you decide who your ideal client is (your niche) and start seeing some results.

1)      Think of a time that was pivotal to your growth, and how you might be able to support people going through the same thing.  This could be a huge challenge, change, illness or shift.

2)      Think about something you’re extremely passionate about or get on your soap-box about…where you want to make difference.

The truth is that often our ideal clients reflect who we once were.  Eg: struggled conceive or couldn’t find a job, or went broke, or got divorced.  Remember a turning point in your life.

They could be people we have a deep connection to because of something we’ve experienced with someone close to us eg: parent with cancer, or sister being bullied.

Or they could be people we’re able support because of expertise we acquired along the way whether formally through school, or through the ‘school of hard-knocks’.

Ironically, the narrower your focus, the more success is likely.  For a lot of coaches and healers, letting go of a more general focus or multiple groups, is difficult. Many have been where you may be.  But it’s not forever, put one on the backburner, and focus on that one focus that has more of a calling to you now. Give it your all and see what happens.

And remember, whatever those marketing ‘gurus’ are calling it, just know that having that focus will help you do more of what you’re meant to do in the world and help more people.

Woohoo!  Post your comments.  This is a juicy topic and we’d love to hear your thoughts.
