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!

For introverts, these lead generation strategies might not appeal to you….but for me I love what I do!  Everyone needs to learn how to Work the Room at Events & Conferences to generate more leads without being annoying and salesy. You want people to talk to you, right?

I love going to events, conferences and inspiring, supporting, coaching and even converting people to become clients. Why do I go to so many live events, even if I have to travel to get to them? Because it’s the biggest form of lead generation in my business! Remember you have to do more of what works. And this works IF you know how to work the room like I do.

lead generation work the room at eventsHere are my Tips for Working the Room when you are at Networking Events & Conferences:

  1. Start with Serving – have a goal of helping others rather than finding people to buy your stuff, you will attract a lot more people to talk with.
  2. Have good Energy stay in the frame of mind that it will all work out in the end, if you give, you will get. I go in with loving energy to hold space for people who need my help and are struggling, what do your prospects need?
  3. Ask Lots of Questions stop talking about yourself unless asked, ask other questions than just “what do you do?”. To find out if someone might need my help I ask, “what are your biggest challenges in your business or marketing right now?
  4. Seek the Unknown stop sitting with people you know already (unless you invited them as your guest), move around the room at every break to meet and sit with NEW people to meet as many people as possible
  5. Provide Value if someone expresses a challenge or asks a question about something you have expertise in, help them on the spot, give them a few minutes of “free advice or resources”, not just a flyer about your services to buy first.
  6. Get the Verbal Opt In grab everyone’s business card or contact information but remember to ask them if they’d like to receive your free tips, resources, report, audio, video, etc. and get on your email list. Otherwise you cannot add them, this is a verbal opt in; do it to build your list faster and making the follow up easier
  7. Move ON! don’t hang out with the same people the whole time, there are way too many more people to meet – keep moving on. If someone won’t “let you move on” then politely introduce them to someone else and bow out of the conversation (I call that passing them off)

Other Great Strategies for you to try.

  • When Planning Travel to an Out of Town to an Event or Conference – Prepare ahead of time; check the event/conference schedule first. Then start connecting with your contacts and friends in the area to set up additional fun meetups, Tweetups (if you are holding a meetup on Twitter) and networking opportunities. You can advertise your meeting on Meetup, on Twitter, Facebook Events to name a few ways to get exposure for free. Try this the next time you go to a Conference or an out of town Event – it REALLY WORKS!
  • Hosting Networking Opportunities When I’m hosting a fun networking opportunity in the area I’m traveling to, I use Private Message to send a message to people on Facebook or LinkedIn to invite them to a networking opportunity in their area. On Facebook, simply go to business groups that are in the area of your destination. You can see all of the members of groups on Facebook, IF the group is not SECRET. Remember – you are not going to spam them with your business offerings – NO! The intent is that you want to genuinely connect with them and let them know that. You might tell them that you are hosting a business networking event in their area and would love to see them there. Of course, ask them to come and to share the information about the networking event/meetup with their connections/friends. That’s not salesy or pushy. You are attempting to connect with others in a different area. People will respond to you. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this approach – it’s one of my guerilla marketing strategies.
  • Remember Your Marketing Materials When you are attending out of town events – always bring your marketing materials, information, forms! I’ve made THOUSANDS at an event where I was attending and not speaking at, by simply being prepared with a sampling of things that I offer. This person invested $40k in one of my high end programs! So, make sure you have your marketing materials AND your order forms on your high end programs when you are attending events & conferences.
  • Regarding the Verbal Opt-In Here’s a great tip to help you get the VERBAL Opt-in Make sure to take along something to give to those you meet at Live Events, something to induce them to be on your email list. I have created a Cheat Sheet of 17 Revenue Generating Tips that I offer to those I meet who are struggling in their business. I hand these out at the time I’m talking with them in exchange for their business card(s) AND I let them know that they will be receiving additional tips and information from me because I’m going to put them on my email list! (so they can receive the tips) You can also create a CD to take along to hand out. Just make sure the person knows that you will be signing them up on your email list so you can send them whatever you’re offering that will help them. As you know, or should know, you can’t just add someone to your email list just because they’ve exchanged business cards with you. Get the verbal opt-in!

love and money live eventI could go on and on with sharing great tips with you. But why don’t you come to my Live Big Event! There are only a few seats left – Woo hoo! I’ve secured all the speakers and almost ALL of them have NEVER spoken in this area before…so exciting! They are all really good friends of mine and I love these women….you will too.

Want to know when to start marketing?

In Part 1 of this article, I covered what marketing really is and how to jumpstart your business and marketing….

Beyond all of that however, where should you start marketing or building a following?

marketing-words-imageIf your goal is to generate cash pretty quickly then I recommend you start marketing in two areas:

  1. Your Database – This should be everyone and anyone you “have access to” or often termed: your circle of influence. This could be anyone you know, do business with, are involved with inside organizations you belong to and even your social media connections. This does not mean you go add them all to an email newsletter database however but consider everyone you know and have access to as potential prospects or referral sources.
    1. Depending on who they are and how you know them then, depends on the approach you use to connect and nurture that relationship. (or market to them)
  2. In Person – You’ll want to meet as many new people as possible and for most small businesses, that means getting out in person where your ideal prospects hang out. When you meet people in person, it’s faster to build relationships where they like, trust and connect with you. Online marketing and connecting typically takes a lot longer.

If your goal is to build the business the right way from the start and you aren’t in urgent need of making money quickly necessarily then here is where I would start:

  1. Building your online presence – This is where most people will go to find out more about you, your products and services, your company, your philosophy, your values, your team, and more. These days people will make buying decisions based on your online presence, especially if they haven’t met you yet in person first.

Your online presence consists of all of the following:

  • Your website
  • Videos of you
  • Your social media profiles and pages
  • Your personality online and what you post or write (or the lack of)
  • Google searches on your name or company name
  • Your reviews or testimonials (or lack of)
  1. From the online presence comes “What you’re selling” – You must make it very clear on what you’re selling or no one will buy much less request more information.

This includes knowing more about and doing well with:

  • JumpStartLogoCopywriting
  • Marketing messages
  • Your unique selling preposition (what makes you different)
  • Making it easy for people to understand what you’re doing, how to get information, how to contact you, how will what you offer benefit them.

I could go on and on here as you can tell but the point is to start marketing now.

Then if you’re not exactly sure what to do to market your business or get started building a following, building relationships and nurturing those relationships over time (which is crucial), then you need to ask for help from a professional.

There is way too much to know or learn about marketing, it would take years trying to figure it all out on your own, why not get a clear plan of action quickly from someone you can trust? It will help give you that jumpstart you want and need and save you a heck of a lot of time and money doing the wrong things.

I offer a complimentary business strategy session that people DO get big clarity in, it’s not just a sales conversation I promise. I want to be a resource for you, help steer you in the right direction to make SMART MARKETING DECISIONS and NOT see you fail or have to go back and get a J.O.B. because you weren’t able to jumpstart your business fast enough….let me help you now!

Want to know when to start marketing?

More often than not, when I speak with newer business owners or those who want to start up a business but aren’t quite ready yet or aren’t sure yet of what kind of business to start…the number one thing the majority of them say about marketing is “when I’m ready to start marketing Katrina, I’ll come to you”.

No!!!

start-up-biz-imageThe time to start marketing your business is now!

Before you think you’re ready!!

Why?

Because you have to start building a following of people who are interested in your topic matter, your industry, your voice. The sooner you start building a following and start talking to people about what you’re doing, whether you’re doing it yet or not, the sooner you’ll have interested parties to sell to when you’re actually ready – YOU’LL HAVE PROSPECTS!

If you wait until you’re “ready”, first of all that day may never come. I’ve seen it.

Secondly, who’s going to be there to listen to you when you announce that you’re ready? No one, or very little people.

You have to start right away with the marketing, trust me.

Marketing comes BEFORE sales.

  • It’s lead generation
  • It’s relationship building
  • It’s content providing
  • It’s connecting
  • It’s nurturing
  • It’s sharing

It doesn’t mean you have to sell anything yet – but you can!

You can sell your products and services BEFORE you’re ready. You can make money without a website, business card, logo or brochure.

You can “build the plane while you’re flying it” so they say!

I know for some of you with a more corporate or educational background, this concept is a tough one. But trust me, wouldn’t you like to find out if there are people out there who want to buy what you want to sell them BEFORE you spend too much time or money creating whatever IT IS?

Yes, you want to know this.

This is Market Research, part of the marketing process.

Where do you start jumpstarting your business in the first place?

You start by either knowing one or more of the following things somewhat clearly (you don’t have to know all of these however right off the bat, nor do you have to be completely clear about them to start marketing):

  • jump-start-your-biz-logoWho do you want to serve? Who do you enjoy working with or who do you think that will be? What type of person, organization or business is it? What do they care about most in regards to what you’re doing? What problems do they need to solve that are in your wheelhouse?
    • If you’re somewhat clear on the WHO then just find out what they want and figure out then what to sell them (to start) and where to find them.
  • What do you want to offer? Do you have specific products or services that you’re wanting to sell and make money on?
    • If you’re somewhat clear on the WHAT then just go into the marketplace and see who’s buying those and that becomes your WHO – start with the most obvious buyers first.
  • How do you want to work? How you want to work should first determine what types of products and services you offer, what business models you implement and possibly even who you target. Depending on how you want to work, there will be very specific marketing strategies you’ll want to do first, plus you may want to delegate some things more too so you can get farther faster.
    • Do you still have a job and can only work an additional 4 hours a week on your business?
    • Do you have two businesses and trying to juggle what to do with each effectively and consistently?
    • Do you want to only work X number of hours a week, month or year?

Want to know why most people will never be great at marketing?

I’ll tell you….reverse-engineer

It’s because they/you get in their/your own way!

You get in your own way with:

  • Thinking that it’s too expensive
  • You don’t want to be perceived as salesy
  • Thinking people will be upset if you send them too many emails or call back too often
  • Making marketing decisions around what YOU like or don’t like (ie: you hate getting junk in the mail so you don’t mail anything to prospects or you hate it when people email you weekly information so you barely send something out once a month!)
  • You don’t believe or aren’t sure yet if you have something important enough to tell them, share or invite them to

Instead try doing the REVERSE and seeing what happens!

  • You say “how CAN I afford this”
  • You change your thinking and realize that being persistent in your follow up, marketing, and sales processes is being “of service” to them, not being salesy
  • You realize that people are WAY too busy to read or see everything that you send them or share so they will rarely get upset due to more information being sent. Besides, people and your prospects will FORGET ABOUT YOU in 30 days!
  • Make your marketing decisions based on what is WORKING for those in your market, industry and more AND they are making money due to it
  • Believe that you ARE the expert. What you have to say and do IS important to 100% of the right people and they are waiting to hear from you.

My week on the East Coast was amazing!

If I missed you and you lived there….I may try to get to Florida, Georgia or somewhere else in the South East in 2017…watch my blog and/or get on my email newsletter!

So what did I do?

13220750_1095564470505237_7457165852056218425_oI spoke for an awesome chapter of eWomenNetwork that meets in Central New Jersey first. Gloria Cirulli, the Exec Managing Director and her whole group of ladies and emales were so inviting. I’m telling you, if you live in or even remotely near where they meet, it’s worth a good drive once a month to connect with these people, they rock!

My talk was on “STOP Avoiding Your Follow Up” and since I’ve been traveling a bit more than normal (in Vegas today in fact visiting my mom) I have to admit, I’m a bit behind on my follow up, yikes!

 

IMAG0587The day after eWomen, my good friend Sandra Fidelis and I arranged to host a one day workshop. It was in New Jersey also and designed to help people get a FAST Cash Flow & Mindset Alignment, something a LOT of business owners need right now.

 

 

IMAG0583It was a good, intimate event and we were able to get down and dirty with some ladies who took advantage of this extra whole day with us. Here’s a pic of most of us that day and another pic of many of the things we covered!  I plan to host these types of events whenever I’m on the East Coast so I can reach more people when I’m there so watch for that in 2017!

 

13267919_10154237096374297_7709270161552805491_nThen I had two days to get to West Chester, PA where I would speak at the 1Life Fully Lived East Coast Conference that weekend….BUT FIRST I visited with my good friend, and previous Live Big Mastermind client, Miranda Mathewson and her two boys that I’d not met yet. Miranda has an awesome story….the short of it is that she was single and running around NYC teaching fitness classes and doing 1on1 fitness training with clients. But what she really wanted was to have a family and kids….was told she couldn’t have kids but found her love Ron and set out on a fertility journey and whoala, after a couple years of trying had two beautiful boys! Now she works from home training people over skype too with a few classes mixed in to get out of the house but she’s a true success story that you can design your business around the kind of life you want to live!

 

13267701_10207406982625911_1098414821118954221_nThen I ended the week on a real high for myself personally! (Here’s a pic of many of the speakers there that weekend (most of whom I have never heard of but who were phenomenal – there are some unknown gems out there!) Not only is 1LifeFullyLived.org such a wonderful organization but they put on this conference that lights you up, fills you up and motivates you to no end. There are people there at the age of 18 and 19 and tons of millennials doing HUGE things! I love to see young entrepreneurs taking life by storm….

 

12322613_10154226888744169_1389711799139847571_o1Life is a non-profit whose mission is to help thousands of people live their lives fully, whatever that means to them. They offer everything they do for free, even free scholarships to their two conferences each year if someone is in need. I support them and love what they are up to and plan to be at the next West Coast conference in Sacramento in October too – find out more about this organization and join me there! Here’s a pic of me winning the social media contest at the conference- amazing I know especially with so many millennials in the audience!!

 

 

13010600_10209005600765355_6836733036765555055_nBut taking me out of town for a week is hard because I miss my honey Jason and our daughter Riley….really, I’m a homebody trapped in a speakers life. 😉 But I wouldn’t change any of it (at this time).

 

 

One thing that I do want to remind you about today however is about my upcoming Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend live 3-day training….

 

Its happening soon here in Sacramento, CA and it’s especially great for entrepreneurs who want to know WHAT TO DO AND HOW TO DO IT in regards to business start up, effective marketing, outsourcing, online marketing, speaking and anything that will create a more smooth-running, moneymaking business for yourself.

It breaks my heart to see entrepreneurs struggling ~ struggling to pay their bills, struggling to get ahead in their business, or struggling to get their message to those who can really benefit from their offerings. I want to help you end this struggle once and for all…

That’s why I’m offering you this VERY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY!

entrepreneur opportunityAs a very special gift, I’m giving you access to my next 3 Day Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend training event for you and a friend on a Free Scholarship! (that’s a $1794 Value!)…. But only through May 31st!!

This is the only training event where you will leave with your 3 Year Entrepreneur Evolution Plan & Roadmap to Attract Floods of New Clients!

No, I haven’t lost my marbles! I LOVE it when my clients go through my seminars or work with me in some way then FINALLY UNDERSTAND what they need to DO in their businesses and how to do it in order to create more income. So I create environments for them to do this, to learn what they need to know, and share with them HOW to do it all too and how to manage their time to fit it all in.

So my question to you is: Would you like help getting clients to flock to you and make 2016 your best year ever? Are you Ready for this Opportunity?

This will be an intimate event with people who are serious about developing the type of business that will give them the lifestyle they’ve been dreaming of. You will receive more personalized attention in a small group setting and make deeper connections with high caliber attendees in the room.

What you’ll walk away with when you join me at this event:

  • Identify more deeply what you really want in life, your biggest passions and how to express them through an authentic-based, money-making business model. Put your marketing on autopilot – so you have more time in your life to LIVE and ENJOY your life; what matters most to you.
  • Create your systematic marketing and follow up system so you are constantly keeping in touch with your clients, prospects and contacts – online and offline.
  • Create new and easy additional sources of income such as ebooks, home study kits, audios and more… in 30 days or less (the key to lead generation and credibility)
  • Leverage your message into high-end coaching and program offerings, joint venture opportunities, memberships and more advanced products and services … so you maximize your revenue per hour spent AND your impact on the world!
  • Learn how to incorporate and monetize speaking opportunities, guest appearances, publicity, radio shows, social media and so much more.

If someone offered you an FREE Scholarship Opportunity to be a More Successful Entrepreneur – would you take it?

It breaks my heart to see entrepreneurs struggling ~ struggling to pay their bills, struggling to get ahead in their business, or struggling to get their message to those who can really benefit from their offerings. Does this describe you?

Are you passionate about what you have to offer to the world but the money just isn’t coming in?  Is anxiety setting in to the point where you are wondering why you decided to start your own business?  If you are new in business or a seasoned business owner, and you are finding yourself a third of the way through the year but your income in your business is not where it should be, my question to you is this:   What have you started doing DIFFERENTLY to make sure you finish this year STRONG?

It bothers me to see hard-working, passionate entrepreneurs like yourself NOT MAKING THE MONEY YOU DESERVE which also means you’re not helping or serving enough other people in the process.

That’s why I’m offering you this VERY SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY!
