Hey everyone, here are some quick tips on how to successfully network INSIDE FACEBOOK GROUPS run by other people First of all, let me say that posting in other people’s groups and other pages and things on Facebook here is one of the main ways I engage with people. HOWEVER… I do it very strategically and NOT salesy. So many people (a few of you too have done this and I’ve private messaged you about it) will think that by joining groups like this one, it gives you the right to just post whatever you want whenever you want and that’s mot a good plan.

What to do when networking in Facebook groups

You first want to read the groups “rules” or description which is usually located on the right column and/or it’s often pinned to the top of the group as an announcement. That will give you some basic guidelines as to when certain posts might be allowed for example; promotions on Wednesdays, inspiration on Tuesdays, Tips on Fridays, etc. I would also recommend trying to ENGAGE in the COMMENTS of a post whenever you have something of value to add. It will make you look good in the light of the leader of that group because Facebook loves it when posts get comments, not just likes and hearts. I would refrain from posting salesy mentions about your products and services except maybe once in a while, and best to do this INSIDE THE COMMENTS if you’re able to help someone with your expertise when they ask for support or have a question about something.

Blatently posting ads and salesy posts can get you removed and you’re not making friends then, just enemies. Instead, offer to give free advice, answer questions, give examples and share stories on posts that your comments are encouraged. If people like what you have to say then “ideally” they will click on your profile name to find out more about you and/or private message you. As for private messaging people inside other people’s groups… there’s nothing wrong with doing that if you have a reason OR if you’re very careful about the wording that you use. Again, do not send a message to promote yourself, it’s like asking someone to go to third base with someone on a first date. NOT COOL.

Build relationships by networking in Facebook groups

Social media is all about connecting, building relationships, sharing other people’s info, standing out, getting visibility but in a good way so people perceive you as an expert and THEN that makes them want to know more. Social media marketing and connecting takes time sometimes, it’s not a wham bam thank you mam kind of place. Try offering to have a phone conversation with people to find out more about THEM… NOT to talk about you. Business will come if you do the right things in your marketing plain and simple. If you aren’t sure what to do exactly or what to say then ask for and seek help – you must or you may end up burning bridges and being that person no one wants to get to know.

Comment below with your thoughts on this! Oh and PS – start your own group and build your own community, then you can do whatever you want inside that group. (although I still recommend giving a lot of value first before trying to sell or no one will come back)   —> Want to join a community of other motivated entrepreneurs for networking & masterminding every single month?

Your thoughts on virtual trainings and courses

Recently I was prepping my materials and PowerPoint for my Speaker Success Bootcamp and it reminded me to ask you about virtual trainings and courses. Virtual trainings and courses can be the course YOU TAKE to help you learn how to run your business OR they can be the courses you OFFER for sale yourself.

  • Do you use virtual trainings and courses in your business? Host them?
  • Want to hold some?
  • Think you could make a lot more residual income if you offered virtual trainings and courses?
  • Do you attend virtual trainings and courses or buy them yourself?
  • All good questions right?

I think we all want to find some residual income streams, am I right? There’s some easy business models that fit the bill for this such as:

  • Affiliate Marketing (making money referring programs, products, systems and technology) – I make a few hundred dollars a month right now using affiliate marketing. Some of my friends make thousands each month; it’s a much bigger strategy for them.
  • Membership Programs (having people pay you a monthly fee to get recurring training or knowledge of some sort from you) – I’m inching up with my Int’l Entrepreneur Network now for this, at $7/month, you can make a nice bit of cash each month if you can get a few hundred people (or even a few thousand!). It’s not as easy as it sounds however.
  • Then there’s creating and running virtual trainings and courses, perhaps doing them over and over again live OR boxing them up into Home Study Programs or Courses after you do them live. I have a few of those and I’m actually thinking of bringing some LIVE trainings back this year and next year. I’d love to hear your thoughts about a few of the programs that could help you jumpstart your business this year? I created a quick poll on Facebook. Will you go take the poll for me?? I’d really appreciate your input.

============================================================

JOIN ME for upcoming calls – look on my event page, or review recent ones on my YouTube!

============================================================

Here’s a quick tip about creating virtual trainings and courses:

FIRST: Figure out which type of program will fit YOU, Your Lifestyle, Your Personality and Your Clients. That means, brainstorm about and determine if you should host an ongoing program, or what I call a “start/stop program” that has a specific start date and end date (could be more difficult to fill on time if you’re new to this). Do you want a short term (3-6 week) or longer term program (90 days)? Do you like the 30 day challenge model with daily interaction? The decision is yours however you want to decide carefully based on many factors:

  • How you like to deliver
  • How your clients like to attend or consume info
  • How likely it is that you have hot prospects
  • Price you want to charge
    • Will this be a lower priced offering to get people to “try you out” or a deeper, more comprehensive training farther down your “funnel” and more expensive?

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible, but you have to make time to implement these kinds of offers in your business.

YOU can do this and I can help!! 😉 Reach out and let’s chat!! I can support you around a LOT more than just marketing and business stuff you know. I help with the ENTIRE JOURNEY. I’ll do a FREE Call with you this month… just answer the questions here to get started. XOXO Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Summer Fun

Jason, Riley and I just returned from our summer vacation – a week in S. California where we went to Disneyland, California Adventure and 3 different beaches. It was a really fun week, but I’m pretty exhausted this weekend, my body wasn’t used to that much walking around. Do you know that Riley has a FitBit and calculated that on Father’s Day, Sunday, when we were at Disneyland on our summer vacation… we took 26,000 steps?!?! We walked 12 miles that day alone and OMG did we feel it. Thank goodness for the (water rides LOL pic) and the hot tub in the condo pool area, that thing got a LOT of use! I hope you’re having a fun start to your summer also! I’d love to hear what you’re up to or where you’re going on your summer vacation.

Summer vacation or ANY vacation is important for entrepreneurs

I have clients in Spain right now for their summer vacation, some have gone to Hawaii, others on cruises… vacations are so important to take when you’re an entrepreneur. We work really hard and we deserve it. If you haven’t planned one in a while or don’t have a vacation on the books of some sort for this year, I urge you to plan something, even a long weekend getaway somewhere. Anything you can look forward to and / or reward yourself with is something you totally deserve. Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible but you have to make time to implement this stuff.

YOU can do this and I can help!! 😉 Reach out and let’s chat!! I can support you around a LOT more than just marketing and business stuff you know. I help with the ENTIRE JOURNEY. I’ll do a FREE Call with you this month… just answer the questions here to get started. XOXO Here’s to creating and enjoying a life full of lots of LOVE & MONEY!!

Let’s just get to the point… no long back story here. I’ve had my own business for almost 16 years now (this Aug) and for what I’ve seen that works for me, my clients, my friends doing really well financially are these two things. Period.

Do other things work? Yes of course. Will you work HARDER to make them work? Yes.

So why not just spend the majority of your time doing the most EFFICIENT & EFFECTIVE forms of lead generation, marketing, follow up and sales!?!?

Top 2 Ways to Get Clients FAST:

  1. Speak – in person, online on webinars, zoom calls, presentations, over the phone on teleclasses, radio interviews, podcast interviews or host your own podcast, radio show or event (online or off). This is the fastest path to cash because YOU are now the INFLUENCER.YOU ARE THE CREDIBLE AUTHORITY FIGURE. This one strategy is what drives 90% of my sales, period. So figure out what you need to do to GET OVER YOUR FEAR OF THIS, or learn how to do it, get started or do it BETTER and make money doing it. Period. You have to learn this stuff – the knowledge about WHAT to do doesn’t just fall out of the sky into your brain! Come on people, get with the program and stop avoiding doing this. Just learn how, get clear on your message, what to do, how to do it and you’ll be much more confident. I promise you. I can help.
  2. Have more Sales Conversations – in person, over the phone, even via email or message online. You have to engage people, they have to start to trust you, you have to hit their “hot buttons” (what matters to THEM) and you have to ask them to take a next step with you. If you aren’t making enough money, you’re just not talking to enough people. Period. So how do you have more conversations? Go back to #1!! And you’ll want to have other foundational things in your business set up so you don’t have a bunch of chaos in the back end of course. Plus there will be a few other things you’ll want to do for marketing, lead generation, follow up and sales. And you may have to learn more on how to best market, follow up and perform quality, authentic and non-salesy sales conversations. These are the things I see MOST ENTREPRENEURS ARE NOT INVESTING ENOUGH TIME OR RESOURCES INTO LEARNING. Either because you think you can “figure it out yourself” or you “don’t really want to know this stuff” or you “think you know what to do” but how’s that working for you now?

Are you wondering how to get WAY more PRODUCTIVE?

Are you tired or even exhausted trying to run your business and earn the money you deserve or find enough clients who will buy from you? 

Running a business can definitely be exhausting… especially if you’re trying to do a lot of the tasks that need to get done by yourself. Right?

I LOVE EFFICIENCY &

I HATE WASTING TIME.

How about you?

Wasting time to me is not the necessary downtime we all need like getting a massage or doing our own morning ritual and self-care… it’s instances such as:

  • Doing things over and over again that could instead be systematized or delegated.
  • Time spent looking for something that is lost because it wasn’t “organized” properly in the first place.
  • Missed appointments perhaps by me or the other party because someone wasn’t paying attention or didn’t schedule it in properly and in time and then moved on.
  • Getting caught up watching videos and reading things on social media when I’m supposed to be there for business purposes.
  • Not planning trips and travel or even local events strategically enough to maximize my time.

EFFICIENCY to me is:

  • Getting things done in the least amount of time with the least amount of effort.
  • Recognizing what needs “my brain” and what could be done by someone else (once they know how to do it or what’s needed to accomplish the task).
  • Knowing when to “let go” of doing something myself just because I can and instead hand it off to someone that I can train to do it over and over again freeing my time up for “the next thing”.
  • Utilizing certain technologies to do certain tasks to free up my time or to reduce the amount of time I spend on a task or project.
  • Being really organized with all things business or personal – such as:
    • Things are in their place in my home 99% of the time. (Granted, it’s not always super clean every day but things are put away so there is less chaos I have to work in since I work from home.)
    • My office and desk have things well organized and put away, maybe with ONE or two piles of to dos or paper but always striving to complete and toss or file, and I usually always leave my desk at night in order with my immediate to do list for the next day right on top.
    • On my computer, having file folders within folders and keeping track of everything from client documents and audio recordings in their own place as well as folders for things by topic like: Legal, Publicity, Vendors, Events, Artwork and more all easy to find at my fingertips. One of the things so many of my clients take forever to find is their graphics and artwork; I rarely see people organize this well (or even get their original artwork in the first place) and you must do this.
  • Being “ready in a pinch” to speak or exhibit and/or sell at a live event or networking meeting if the opportunity arises quickly. (This happens often and you have to be prepared and ready or you’ll miss out on potential clients, sales and huge opportunities.)

If this seems a bit OCD, I assure you it is not. I am not OCD, I am a VEOBO… Very Efficient, Organized Business Owner.

But how else do you think I get so much done every month?

There is no way I could do all the things I do, from hosting my live events, to traveling to conferences and speaking gigs, to managing calls with clients, networking events and launching new programs and services if I wasn’t so organized and efficient. And of course without my team… they are a big help.

I can show you HOW to get more organized and efficient in YOUR business also! Why? Because I know that by doing this you will be more PROFITABLE and probably very quickly in fact.

I urge you to figure out where the HOLES are in YOUR business or life and FIX THEM FAST. Your profitability is directly related to how efficient and organized you are in your business and life.

Otherwise 2019 could be yet another year you don’t achieve all your goals, don’t reach the income you want to reach, don’t allow yourself the time off you desire and deserve to take or even don’t see your family as much as you promised you would.
