Today I’m talking about when to do free vs. paid introductory offers and sessions in your business or your funnel plus how to create EASY YES offers too. I’m working on tweaking this right now with many of my clients…you’ve always got to tweak what you’re doing and keep shifting, especially when things get stagnant. Easy yes offers are offers you want to have available in many situations in your business such as:
  • when at networking events
  • when speaking to groups virtually or live
  • when exhibiting at a conference or with a vendor table anywhere
  • on radio show interviews and telesummits
  • your own free teleclasses and webinars
  • videos like the one below and more!

I share some pros and cons to doing both plus give you a couple examples and scenarios that could help you with this. Take a watch…

Oh and I’m seeing if a lot of you are REALLY PAYING ATTENTION OR NOT to my videos and ezines because there’s a stupid, crazy, easy yes offer on the video too…hmmmm, how many of you will see it???????

Now, besides the super cool special offer (for $97!) on the video today, there is something else I wanted to bring to your attention.
I decided to hold a SUMMER SCHOOL type of thing where I’ll be doing a series of 4 ONE-DAY Mini Mastermind Meetings (in person).
The June 20th one is already SOLD OUT.
But I’ve still got spots open for:
  • Friday, July 25th from 10-3
  • Wednesday, August 27th from 10-3 
  • Monday, September 22 from 10-3
They will all be held in the greater Sacramento or Roseville, CA areas, exact meeting locations will be sent only to those who register. Contact me now if you’re interested in one of those spots. Max 10 people per date and they are filling up – oh and they’re $250 for the whole day with me too or discounted if you do more than one!

Please let me know how I can support you in growing, marketing and monetizing your business!

I’d love to hear your feedback and take aways from the video!

Guest Article by Shannon Cherry

Most individuals think that corporate sponsorships are only for nonprofits, associations and little leagues. But here’s the thing: if you do any kind of promotions, you can be sponsored. And you’re leaving money on the table if you aren’t benefiting from sponsorships.

Even big name celebrities have sponsors. People including Madonna, Kobe Bryant, and Justin Timberlake… And we know they aren’t charities.

Okay, so you’re not nearly big rock star or sports legend. Is it possible for you, a small business owner, to get sponsorships?

Yes!

You see, the reasons why a company would sponsor a celebrity are the same reasons they would sponsor you.

It used to be that companies would underwrite the costs of a sponsorship for good will. Times have changed. Today, sponsorships are now a valuable marketing tool, and corporations looking for a better return on investment than just that it ‘feels good’ to help out.

The sponsor’s goal is often to get to a specific target market, so if you can answer these questions, you can get a support for something you are already – or planning on – doing:

  1. Do you have a visible following? Think about your subscriber list, your social media, your connections with traditional media. If you can clearly prove you have a following makes a sponsor interested. This doesn’t mean you need huge figures. It’s the quality of the following not the quantity that makes a difference. (See the next question to understand this more.)
  2. Can you show you have an influence with your following? Sponsors will want to see if you have a bond with the people in your ‘tribe.’ Influence means you can give them a call to action, and they will respond. This is exactly why the quality of your following is more important than the quantity. There’s no return on investment if you have 50,000 followers on Twitter but only 2 people are actually reacting to your tweets.
  3. Are YOU willing to invest in a sponsorship relationship? If you think the sponsorship is over as soon as the company has handed you the hard or soft money, then you’re ill prepared for sponsorships. The key is building a lasting relationship.
  4. Can you verify that your sponsors will get a quantifiable return on investment? There’s a right approach and a wrong approach to this. And without help, it can be hard to see what will work. (And by the way, what will work for one potential sponsor may not for another).


Shannon Cherry
, a veteran in building connections – including corporate sponsorships, is sharing her sponsorship secrets to help individuals like you get your share of the $17 Billion in corporate sponsorship available. Join us on June 26 for the free webinar: “5 Steps to Get Companies to Sponsor You.”

Discover how Shannon is getting sponsors to pay for just about EVERYTHING she does, including clothes and makeup, computers, gifts for clients, blogging, attending and hosting events and much more.

When you join us on June 26, you’ll discover:

  • Why companies have millions of dollars to dole out
  • Why a company would be interested in you and what you’re doing
  • What you really need to offer to land a sponsorship
  • What a sponsorship can pay for
  • And much, much more!

It’s all fun and games til someone gets hurt, right? Isn’t that what parents say when their child is doing something that could possibly hurt them with an easy misstep? That’s what my parents used to say…

But back then, when we were kids, there weren’t a lot of repercussions to that. Now, as entrepreneurs, there is. I’ve been talking a lot about making sure you’re developing systems in your business and automating your marketing, lead generation and follow up systems too so that it’s easier to make sales without YOU having to make them or for prospects to get info without YOU having to send it to them personally.

A LOT of you, and I mean a LOT, have come to me knowing you desperately need to get some systems in place because you’re either working WAY too hard or you know you’re just not maximizing and monetizing what you’re doing very well. I LOVE it! This is so important!

Today’s video talks about Prioritizing which is a very important topic when you’re in your own business. We have way too many things on our plate and don’t always implement or accomplish the right things in order of importance depending on what goals we want to achieve.

Learn more on the video…

Please let me know how I can support you in growing, marketing and monetizing your business!

I’d love to hear your feedback and take aways from the video!

I am one of the Featured Guest Speakers on the Public Speakers Association Virtual Summit happening June 12, 2014

There are lots of speakers out there talking about all kinds of different topics. What makes YOU different? During this Virtual Summit you’ll hear from dozens of great speakers so you definitely want to sign up to listen in!

I’m going to be sharing however on the topic of:  How to Design Your Talk to Make Everyone Want What You’ve Got to Offer

So, how can you stand out among others who do what you do?

If you’re doing speaking presentations already or even if you’ve never done a single one, this presentation will give you some fresh new ideas to get noticed and get booked.

Designing what to talk about is an art and a skill because you want to know your overall goal from what you want out of the exposure before you figure out what you want to say. If you’re primarily speaking for free, then you can often make an offer at the end of your talk. In that case you need a talk that shares good content but also highlights what you’re trying to sell. If you’re looking for more paid speaking opportunities, you don’t usually make an offer but there are things you do want to make sure you do for talks like that.

I will be presenting on the topic of:  How to Design Your Talk So That Everyone Wants What You’ve Got to Offer

Come to this presentation and learn:

• Why it’s important to reverse engineer your talk so its designed to have your audience take a specific action
• How to craft your talk so it’s easier to remember with less notes or wordy powerpoint slides
• 3 sales strategies to incorporate into your talk to increase closing ratio without sounding salesy
• 5 ways to capture the contact information of everyone in the room regardless of what type of talk you’re giving
• How to develop a kick-butt follow up system to engage attendees and sell more later
• How to know when to sell what and for how much to which group and why it matters

This event is Completely Free to Listen or Watch 1 or all of the presentations.

Enjoy, Enjoy, Enjoy!!!

I’ll talk to you soon!

It’s almost June, which means that 2014 is just about half over.

If that gives you a sinking feeling deep in the pit of your stomach because you haven’t made the progress you dreamed of on January 1st, you’re not alone!

Maybe your marketing message isn’t as effective as you’d like it to be or you’re not getting it out there enough…

You know “the fortune is in the follow-up” but those follow-up tasks seem to fall through the cracks…and take your revenue-generating opportunities along with them.

The fire of the moment seems to get your attention each day and by Friday you realize you’ve been working on random, scattered activities instead of focusing purposefully on what you keep saying you need to do.

And once again – with a deep sigh – you add the same “to-do’s” to your list of tasks for the coming week…

While the little voice inside you says “well…maybe THIS week I’ll make progress”…

But in your heart, you know if you keep doing what you’ve always done – getting distracted, getting caught up in minutiae, and not acting like the CEO of Your Business, Inc. – you’ll wind up feeling even worse when December 31st rolls around and you find yourself saying

“Well, next year will be my year.”

It’s time to say ENOUGH!

Whatever challenges you’re facing, you’re feeling frazzled, frustrated, and frantic as you struggle to move ahead or just try to keep from losing ground.

You’re feeling no joy or passion for your business and you’re “spinning your wheels” – working longer and harder for fewer and fewer results!

This wasn’t what you had in mind when you started your dream biz, was it?

The good news is that the solution to these challenges is simpler than you think!

Join Monique Y. Wells and me for our free teleclass:

The Top 5 Ways to Be More Productive in Your Business & with Your Marketing

where we share ready-to-use strategies for turning your productivity and marketing issues around quickly and easily.

• Monique will reveal her simple, 5-step system for skyrocketing productivity in all areas of your business right away.

• I’ll be sharing how you can automate and systematize your marketing and sales processes so you can stay “top of mind” with your ideal prospects and turn them into paying clients with confidence and ease.

• We’ll both give clear, step-by-step instructions on how to put all of this into a smooth running system so it actually gets done!

Monique and I will be broadcasting live on

Thursday, June 5, 2014

10:00 am Pacific / 1:00 pm Eastern / 7 pm Paris time

and enter your name and contact information in the form near the bottom of the page.

You will be able to interact with Monique and me live on the call. We look forward to “seeing” you there!

Today’s video talks a little more about how life often throws all kinds of curve-balls at you and you have to figure out how to bob and duck so you don’t get hit too hard.

I know it’s not easy navigating the world of having your own business and I know it’s not easy when roadblocks stand in your way too. What do you do, right?

What comes first? The personal issue? The family member? or the Sales and Marketing? Sometimes, NONE of it does…because burnout hits.

Why am I talking about this now?

Well….I’m not burned out, I LOVE what I do, it’s not that. And I do have certain practices that I do each day to protect myself from this happening, I explain it on the video.

But I am a bit overwhelmed with life too right now as you can imagine with a loved one going through surgeries to rid him of cancer. And at age 45 too.

You just never know! You never know when something could happen or if it could and to whom? You? Someone you love? Someone you live with or someone far away that you have to travel to take care of or see? Gosh….you just NEVER KNOW what if?

That’s why I did  the video I did today, take a watch and:

  • See what kind of changes YOU could make right now.
  • Discover what things you could easily stop and plan for right now….just in case.

Seriously, are you going to wait to do this?

 

So, I’m doing a series of videos around what’s real for me, my passions and how it relates to what YOU’RE doing in your business. If you missed any of them go back to previous ezines and video emails from May and end of April to catch up, they’re pretty vital to your success I believe.

For those of you who understand now and want more of all of this “working on YOU and YOUR business” stuff, what’s really important….I have a HUGE SPECIAL OFFER for you!  I’ve opened up 10 spots for 10 people who know you need systems to do a 1on1 60 min planning and implementation call with me. I’m going to record it too so you can listen back anytime and get it all done! Plus I’ll even offer a couple check in emails with you too afterwards so we make SURE you get it done!

I don’t do this type of offer very often so you may want to jump on it if this is something you know you need. Click here to sign up right now (there’s no fancy webpage, it’s just sign up and go!) and then I’ll be in touch to schedule our phone session and tell you how to prepare. This will be such a valuable session, you can’t even imagine until you do it. I can’t wait to get my hands on YOUR business!

I’d love to hear your feedback and take aways from the video!

I’m doing a series of videos around what’s real for me, my passions and how it relates to what YOU’RE doing in your business. I hope you stick around and really pay attention to them in the next month or two. Because I’m also going to be launching a brand new assessment tool to help you find out just how happy and ready you are in your life and your business. Watch for that because you’re going to want to take that!

Today’s video is all about Embracing Systems in your business. On the video I explain more about what I mean about systems, I walk you through a couple I use and share more on how to start setting them up for yourself too. This is a crucial activity to work ON your business because you just never know what will happen or when and you need to be prepared with systems so you can take time off in your business if you need to.

Watch today’s video here

Oh and I also just wrote an article too, all about Embracing Systems…go read it for more info!

For those of you who understand now and want more of this….I have a HUGE SPECIAL OFFER for you! I’ve opened up 10 spots for 10 people who know you need systems to do a 1on1 60-minute planning and implementation call with me.
