The biggest lesson I’ve learned during covid

The biggest lesson I learned during this covid shut down “era”, is now what I feel it’s like since it’s lasting so long… besides just trusting that “it will all work out” which has been my motto my whole journey as an entrepreneur… The biggest lesson I’ve learned thus far is that as an entrepreneur, you can LITERALLY make money doing anything, anytime, from anywhere.

I’m seeing people make shifts in their businesses big time, some have just had to, but when you fully BELIEVE that anything is possible, and you BRAINSTORM with others who have BIG IDEAS and probably think BIGGER than you, it can result in some HUGE OPPORTUNITIES that you may not have thought out on your own.

I’m seeing it with ALL TYPES of businesses also.

You can’t say “well that virtual stuff doesn’t work with my type of business”. I will bet you $1000 I can find a way HOW YOU can make money and/or do things differently – you just may not WANT to do them or FEEL COMFORTABLE doing them!

That’s your choice but you could be holding yourself back with your negative thoughts and doubts. During times like this you have to LET GO of what you think has to be and EMBRACE the evolution of you and your business. It’s Simple. Yet YOU may not see what to do on your own, you most likely will need someone to SHOW YOU the WHAT and the HOW.

Don’t get me wrong, I KNOW that we all don’t do our businesses JUST to make money… of course. We want to MAKE A DIFFERENCE and we want to HELP PEOPLE. But we’re not going to be able to help many people if we don’t FOCUS ON OURSELVES FIRST. Make sure you are doing whatever it takes to take care of YOU and your family first, then everyone else please. And in order to help a LOT more people, we need to make a LOT more money so we can do BIGGER THINGS and aren’t “MONEY STRESSED” in the process.

Here’s a few things you can take advantage of to come “NETWORK” with some other entrepreneurs who you might be able to either collaborate with or do business with. You never know until you SHOW UP! I was on a call last night in fact, with literally me and two others and it opened up a HUGE OPPORTUNITY to get in front of 800 women entrepreneurs!

For some Quick Revenue Generating Ideas you totally want to attend a few of my International Entrepreneur Network calls!! Literally, this is all that we do on our 1 hour calls every month… there are 3-4 of them that you can attend and all different times or days. It’s the MOST AFFORDABLE thing you can do right now because it’s just $7/month! Yep, it is… and I’m serious. We have over 130 members but only a couple dozen show up to the calls and so they’re always different. Always different questions are asked and answered, different types of business owners are on those calls. It’s crazy how much value you will get when you join and you SHOW UP!! L earn more and register now because our next call is July 30th! Go to www.iEntrepreneurNetwork.com.

Stop getting distracted and overwhelmed which is causing you to NOT reach your money goals. Instead, learn what’s working! We have to MASTER Zoom and other online platforms for our calls, webinars, live events, trainings, group calls and more. THIS is what I will be teaching on during this webinar. There are various ways to present your material, speak, network, run meetings, etc. online and offline.

It’s easy for anyone to do this and I’m going to share with you all the things you want to know. REGISTER HERE: https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/webinar-events/

JumpStart Your New Biz Start Up

First Steps to Setting Up Your Business’ Foundation for a Smooth-Running Consistent $$Making Machine  

  1. Determine your ideal target audience – whether you have one, two or three different target markets, figure out who they most logical ones are who would be interested in your products, services, programs and more and why they should care 
  1. Figure out your overall marketing message – the transformation you provide and the problems you solve and what type of “wording” will attract the target audience plus what’s in it for them (this wording and messaging will go on all your marketing materials and website) 
  1. Design a website – one that represents what you’re doing, selling, offering and who it’s for and why they should care. Make it attention getting and results oriented or visitors won’t take action when they get that and that’s your #1 priority. Also make sure you do not design this yourself… always seek professional help with this because your website should be the HUB of your business and most important tool.
  1. Develop your positioning on social media – which platforms to be on and how to show up so that you are conveying that overall marketing message and that others want to follow you. Then it’s about creating a plan and strategy for what to do online which takes time.
  1. Creating your marketing materials – there are wide range of materials you could create depending on where you’ll go, how you’ll market and what industry you’re in but here are a few you might consider, depending:
  • Business Cards
  • Brochures / Rack Cards
  • Note cards / Gifts
  • Chachkis
  • Floor Banners
  • Table Top Signs
  • Speaker Sheet
  • Order forms
  • Flyers
  • Infographic
  • Free gifts / ebooks
  • Nametags
  • Car Signs
  • Ads for print
  • Postcards
  1. Free gifts and downloads – you want to have one, two or even multiple freebies on your website and in general to make your target market want to learn more and get more info. What can you develop that hits their “hot buttons” and gives them a glimpse or a “taste” of what they’re seeking as far as advice, content, training, resources and more.
  1. Videos – you’ll use videos for all sorts of things, what you want to do in the beginning stages of your business is create videos that have people “experience you”, get to know you, learn from you, and for interaction on your website and social sites.
  1. Team and Tools – there will be many things you’ll start to implement or need to do that you can delegate or outsource, the key is figuring out WHICH things to start delegating first and how to make it so you can afford to delegate them. There are also many techy tools and resources that will help you be more efficient, productive and profitable, don’t be afraid to embrace tools to support you, be open to learning new things and new ways.

What do you do when a prospect says no?

What do you do when a prospect says no?

  • Do you give up the first time and say okay, bye?
  • Or do you ask why?
  • Do you try to get to the heart of the real reason they’re saying no?

If you give up too easily, or too soon, then you’re missing out on thousands and thousands of dollars in sales in your business.

For most prospects, their first no is just to see if you can overcome their objections. It’s not that they do this consciously, but unconsciously. Many people innately want to protect themselves from buying, so their subconscious triggers the standard responses that may not even be the real reason or real response they truly want to give.

When you’re in a sales conversation one-on-one with somebody there’s a lot more to do than just present the features and benefits of your program product or service and ask them if they want to buy.

The sales conversation is a dance that you have to learn, it’s not a skill we’re all born with. Some are better than others at this dance but we all have to learn how to do this better and more authentically to us. You can’t avoid learning more about sales and honing your sales skills just because you don’t want to be considered “salesy”. You just need to learn how to do it in a way that makes you feel good about it and that ALSO gets you the RESULTS that you want.

There are many phrases, words, and strategies to use within a sales conversation and it varies depending on your industry, type of business, level of confidence, skill, and opportunity in which you are engaging with a prospect.

If you don’t know what those are, and when to interject which, then you could lose the sale more often than not and you definitely are probably a little ill prepared on what to do when the prospect says no.

The words that you use and the things that you say in the sales conversation are critical to your success, and frankly critical to you serving your new customer or client. I’m assuming here that you have an amazing program product or service that is going to benefit your prospect tremendously here, I’m not just talking about selling people at random or because we are just out to “sell” someone. Selling is serving though and you do have to embrace that if you’re a business owner or you will most likely never get ahead.

Without sales your business cannot survive. Without clients, you cannot serve or help others so I urge you to do whatever it takes to hone your sales skills… sooner rather than later.  

If you know that handling objections, conversations like these, and even writing copy for your web pages where you want people to go click and buy, are things that you should probably be working on then you want to take a look at what’s going on this weekend. Check it out…

If you realize that you often don’t know WHAT to do when a prospect says no or how to get more prospects to speak with you in the first place, then you want to check this out. I promise that working on this will help you help more people while you’re also building a much more profitable business for yourself and your family.

I happen to be giving away a 30-minute video training on handling objections in your sales conversations. It’s included with a few other items in the Jumpstart Your Sales Now Package that I’m giving away absolutely free right now via the Ultimate Sales Confidence Giveaway that’s going on through tomorrow, May 31st.

I mentioned this giveaway once before in an email earlier this week but if you haven’t gone to register for this yet and any of the above resonates with you… now is the time.

Besides my free package, you can get access to many other free sales-oriented scripts, outlines, checklist, products, and more that are also included in this free giveaway. Run over to this page right and take full advantage of everything you can, while you can. I know a lot of the people who are giving free products away during this giveaway and these aren’t our regular freebies, they are actually things people pay for in our businesses and they are available only through tomorrow, Sunday May 31st so don’t delay.

Go grab the Jumpstart Your Sales Now Package plus many other free products and programs today!

Here’s to helping a lot more people with YOUR GIFTS and learning how to make sure they take advantage of them and that they don’t self-sabotage themselves from investing in what you have to offer.

11 Types of Videos You Can Create to Jumpstart Your Business

I know that for some of you you’re forced into doing more videos right now and others you love doing them or do them already and will continue to once the country gets “back to work”.

Videos are one of the single most paid attention to marketing strategy right now and YouTube is one of the world’s largest search engines.

You literally have to be doing videos to keep up with your competition and make sure you are NOT the “best kept secret” for what you do.

For many of you, you’re having to learn how to do videos more effectively, learn the technology as well as perhaps the strategy behind WHY you want to do more videos AND what the heck to do them about, right?

I’ll bet that you could be making this way too hard however and “overthinking” things like:

  • what do I talk about on videos? (what’s in your heart or top of mind w/ clients)
  • what technology do I need to buy? (none, use your phone or computer)
  • should I do Facebook live more?
  • how do I create my YouTube channel
  • and more…

Well, I’ve got a couple video TUTORIALS FOR YOU – click to watch either or both as you see fit… one is about WHAT to say or do videos about and the other is a real how-to tutorial that is live on my YouTube now on how to set up your YouTube Channel (it’s for beginners).

CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO MARKETING TIPS VIDEO – PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL WHEN YOU’RE THERE, THANKS!

 

CLICK HERE FOR YOUTUBE SET UP TUTORIAL – PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO MY CHANNEL WHEN YOU’RE THERE, THANKS!

 

OK, now for the 11 Types of Videos You Can Create:

  1. Video tips about topics you are an expert in or that involve your business
  2. Product reviews if you have a book or product solely for the purpose to introduce and share features of a particular product
  3. Promotional video that talks about something you’re selling or offering for free
  4. Interview with you being interviewed or you interviewing someone or just a joint video with another complimentary business professional on a topic you both have expertise in
  5. Testimonial video for someone else or request them from your clients
  6. Training video for one of your paid courses or programs
  7. Free webinar or preview call designed to teach a little, list build, get people introduced to you and then make offers to work with you, enroll in a program or come to a free discovery/strategy session with you
  8. Facebook live or other social media live video with the purpose of building relationships (you can do others for the other above reasons too) and having your followers get to know you more
  9. Rant videos… if you must, go ahead and share some controversial thoughts!
  10. Webpage videos – these are videos that would enhance the wording on a specific page on your site. These could be good for the following types of pages (literally every page could have an explainer video): Home, About, Services, Free Gift, Contact, Free Consult, thank you pages, Speaker page and more!
  11. Tutorial video – either doing this for free or paid, I’ve done both. Some I feel have more value, I charge for, others that could be a very good draw to get more people on my list, I may give away. Some tutorials are good to show your assistants what you want done or they may give to you for things you need to learn in your business perhaps.

I know you can do this – go create some new videos!

And, because I love to invite you to events and calls that you can attend for networking and learning, here are 10 things you may find valuable to attend:

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.

Below in this video description are a couple ways to come find out how I can help you but START SOME WHERE NOW! 

OK, now for 7 Things Going on This Week and Next ONLINE that You Will Find Valuable to Attend:

    1. The Int’l Entrepreneur Network calls are weekly right now and they are for any business owner or anyone who WANTS to start up their own business right now (it’s a great time!).

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)
