What does JUMPSTART mean to you?

It just came to my attention from the last email I sent out to my subscribers about my Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend event (I got dozens and dozens of people replying) that many have the thinking that: “I don’t need a jumpstart” because…

  • I’ve been in business for 5, 10 or more years and things are going good
  • I’m too busy, I don’t need clients right now
  • I’m slowing down and trying to stop working so hard I certainly don’t want to get a jumpstart
  • I need to scale my biz, not give it a jumpstart
  • I need an exit strategy, not give it a jumpstart

Well… great!! Those situations in fact ARE also things that I believe you still need a “jumpstart” with. At least that’s how I look at it, let me explain.

I have a LOT of clients who are in these situations, I don’t work with just new business owners you know…

I work with seasoned business owners too. For the newer businesses, getting a jumpstart makes sense to a lot of you, for obvious reasons I think.

However, for my seasoned clients we do things like: 

  • Develop more systems (online and off) to help you manage your business easier and work less in it but ON it
  • Create systems for more nurturing of your database for more referrals, automation, reminders or upsells so sales are made while you sleep!
  • Changing your offerings, raising rates or adding other income streams that are more leveraged perhaps so you don’t have to work so many hours to make the money you’re making – changing it up, doing things differently takes planning, strategy, support and even bigger ideas than some people may generate on their own.
  • Adding team members so you can do less yourself and have more free time for vacations, family or just plain working less with less possibility of potential burnout. Plus, having more team allows you to expand, grow, exit, franchise, hire a manager to run things, be a better CEO.
  • Upleveling or evolving your brand – creating a new website and direction with new inspiration due to change or something that recently happened in your life OR that you WANT to happen but there’s no room for it to the way you’re going. I worked with a fitness trainer once who was holding classes at a gym and also doing mobile training 1on1 and when we changed her business model to doing virtual fitness training and having an online membership and community she could actually stop working so much, she met a man and had two kids!
  • Upleveling yourself as an expert with a book, speaking, more worldwide exposure, hosting a podcast, developing a movement, hosting live events and your exit strategy even. These are things we often want once we’ve got a good book of business already but there’s no time to even think about implementing all of this when you’re IN the business day after day.

Being busy IN the business isn’t good if something does end up happening that could take you out of the day to day sales and client interaction, right?

What would happen if you or someone you loved got sick, hurt or worse right now? 

Would income still be coming into your business regularly even if you didn’t have to concentrate on it?

The “what if” Factor is real. Do you have a plan in case something happens? This is what a lot of seasoned biz owners are NOT prepared for – how to make their business run and make money if THEY did not have to be there every day.

  • What if you had to go take care of a loved one for a month?
  • What if you had to have a surgery and were out for 3 weeks on pain killers?
  • What if your kid/husband/mom/fill in the blank couldn’t work or got hurt/sick and it was just YOU to take care of them?

None of us are getting younger, more stuff happens to us and the ones we love as we get older no matter how hard we work at preventing it.

So much stuff has happened to me and those I love since I started my business – what makes you think nothing like this will ever happen to you?

  • I’ve been through a divorce and also another really horrible breakup with a boyfriend, that made it hard to concentrate on work throughout the whole process (for 4 months!).
  • My dad died and as an only child had to fly to his home multiple times, deal with all his “stuff” and settle his estate over the course of 12 months and $23,000, taking care of everything through probate.
  • I’ve had two total hip replacement surgeries – all in ONE year, out for 3-6 weeks each time, thinking I could work from the couch but not realizing what recovery really took out of me, wasn’t able to.
  • I’ve had a toe surgery another year, a really bad sprained ankle another year and now have knee issues (Oh and speaking is my main biz strategy, right? Hard to do on crutches or brace.).
  • My current husband went through cancer the year he proposed. We had to postpone our wedding a year and I had to spend half my days all week long for over 8 weeks in the chemo center cutting my work time in half if not less as I was a full-time caregiver. (Thank God he’s healthy now!)
  • My mom fell 3 times in one year and I had to fly to her a couple times for surgeries, and to get her set up with in home health care.

I’m sure there was more than that but those are the biggies… beyond that I’ve had multiple website changes and team changes that have cost me tens of thousands of dollars and months of delay in my marketing.

You seriously can’t wait to get more SYSTEMS set up in your business. 

Stop thinking that you’ll focus on this “later” because you’re “too busy or too ___” now.

This is just something to chew on and maybe a “reality check” for some of you too. 😉

I don’t want to see ANYTHING bad happen to you or anyone you love but IF IT DOES I want you to be ready for it. I also want to see you making a LOT more money doing what you love!!

THIS IS WHAT HAVING A JUMPSTART MEANS TO ME.

This is not a squirrel or a bright shiny object. Instead it’s what most people I see need, including myself all the time! A jumpstart somewhere…

Whether you are a NEW business or a SEASONED business, you need to be SMART about your business.

I’m happy to chat with anyone who wants to discuss any of this and what it could look like to work with me on this.

  • For some of you it could just be a couple quick calls because you have things so dialed in.
  • For others you might need a total overhaul of your business, your website, your team and your operations. 

I don’t know until I can discuss it with you but I’m telling you, I see things in systems, I’m very detail oriented and I’m super organized and I can help anyone do this stuff so you can create a smooth-running, CONSISTENT moneymaking business around the kind of lifestyle that YOU want to live.

You need to do things in ORDER OF IMPORTANCE though or it will take you way longer to see the success that you hope to see.

Using Printed Order Forms?

I was an exhibitor a big marketing conference in LA last week,  setting out my printed order forms on my table, and I thought this could be a good topic to share with you today. Printed order forms in this high-tech marketing world is a very OVERLOOKED piece of marketing collateral that many entrepreneurs don’t have or use.

 

One of the biggest issues with entrepreneurs when it comes to them/you NOT making money on an everyday basis is the lack of a printed order form and OFFLINE SALES PROCESS.

This is such a critical part of our world today, some of you may not have any idea…

THOUSANDS of dollars of my sales every year are made in person and on a printed order form. Let me share why you want one and what it’s going to do for you in your business.

The quick answer to WHY you want a printed order form is: “To make Easy Yes Offers on a daily basis with people you meet.”Click To Tweet

Here are four reasons or instances where having a printed order form when you’re out and about locally or away on trips, is critical to either more sales, your sanity and time or both.

1) Instead of printed order forms, can’t I just use a Square or PayPal swipey thing that plugs into my phone to take money from someone if they want to buy something from me in person? Or can’t I just take cash or check?

Well, the answer to this is simple. If you take money these ways, you still have to capture/get and manually enter in the customer’s full contact information into your main database or email marketing software for ongoing marketing and follow up later – MANUALLY… that means it’s less likely to happen if you don’t have an automated system. AND… that is IF you get their full contact information in the first place!

So many people do not, they just swipe and take the money and move on or take the cash or check and let the person go. HUGE MISTAKE!! Those customers might be great ongoing customers too but if you don’t continue to market to them or follow up with them you’ll never find out, nor will you get any referrals because you won’t be “top of mind” with them. You must get their full contact information regardless is the main point here or you’ll miss out on future sales. When they sign the order form too, you can put disclaimers on there, refund policies and have other things they can check to “add on” and potentially increase your sale. The idea of the PROCESS however is that when you take their information, they give you their credit card on a form, then you can be in charge of entering that into your shopping cart yourself , even taking payments and then having the cart initiate follow up emails and messages automatically that you pre-write.

2) Can’t I just send people to my website to buy or sign up for stuff? Passing out my card, flyer or brochure?

 

Goodness NO! RARELY does anyone follow through with that! YOU have to be in charge of the sale, not them. Plus, don’t you want the money TODAY? It could be a week or much longer even before they go click and buy, therefore prolonging the sale. People are way too busy for this. YOU have to be in charge and make it easier for them to buy when they’re HOT and the way to do that is with a printed order form. Plus… when you do run into a potential customer in person and they are really ready to buy, even just after a 10+ minute conversation anything is possible…You can give them a “SPECIAL OFFER” to buy today or when they buy XYZ today, they can also get a bonus of something. Therefore you make your money TODAY!! Having what I call an “Easy Yes Offer” is a great way to make sales every single day. I teach entrepreneurs how to create their Easy Yes Offers and their order forms at my live events plus I give you templates too. It takes a little bit longer to explain what I mean by an Easy Yes Offer – I make people sell theirs at my live events too actually…come experience it for yourself in November in LA!

3) Can’t I just schedule a call with them to talk about working with me or what I have to offer?

 

YES!! We do want to do that all day, of course… however, typically a phone call is when someone really needs to have that conversation with you, maybe share more about where they are now and what they’re looking for help with, that way you both can determine if you’re a good fit to work together or not. That’s a sales conversation and we want to book a LOT of those. A printed order form however is meant for the quicker, lower priced sales that can get people to experience you right now and then you can always follow up with a phone call from there to sell them into higher end programs and packages. Maybe you have a book, a webinar or an event to sell today though, those are quicker decisions people can make on the spot without a lot of thought or discussion and why not get them to buy today if you can? Why not make money daily if you’re able?

4) Can’t I just pull out my phone or iPad and have them sign up online on my website in person?

 

Sure… however that’s very time consuming for THEM. You have to make it EASIER for them, not harder. Some of your customers may not be that technical either, so doing this on their phone or your device could provide challenges. In addition, if you’re in a room with a lot of people it really limits the number of people who can do this efficiently during that event. Oh and if the internet is not working or isn’t available then you’re really stuck right? I would never do this at my exhibitor booth either it just bogs up the flow of traffic and just isn’t a good use of time for anyone.

Finally, if you are a speaker, it’s just way more efficient to pass out printed order forms when you’re attempting to make sales during your talk or in the back of the room after your talk. You can collect them and go and enter them all in later ensuring the “follow up process” will run and continue automatically so you have less manual entry later.

If you know you need an order form, I’m sure you’ve seen dozens of examples out there and I have some very easy templates to model after.

Are you in the process now or thinking about designing a new website for your business sometime soon? Maybe you have a website but it’s not really doing much to build your business?

If either are the case, you can watch this video for tips on designing a new website or tweak the one you have.


Designing a New Website or Revamping Your Current One

There are SO many things to know these days about designing a new website so they will actually WORK FOR YOU rather than just sit there doing nothing, in regards to bringing you more clients, visitors and referral sources.

You MUST LEARN what it takes to really have a successful, well-traveled and converting website or I’m afraid you might continue to be the “best kept secret” in your industry for years to come! The good news is that there are people like me who will spoon feed you ONLY what you need to know about your website design, functionality and content, and not give you too much of the “really techy info that bogs your brain or mind”.

Now, I’ve not been that techy minded or savvy, especially when I first started my business. I was resistant to learning new things, especially if they had to do with technology. But I learned that these online platforms and systems are the #1 thing that helps me reach a lot more potential prospects every month AND be able to manage all the leads I get (online and offline). I taken a lot of time over the years to learn about designing a new website.

I’ve embraced the fact that I need to continually brush up on my techy knowledge and learn more efficient systems or I’ll never get where I want to get in my business. Plain and simple and you need to also.

Running Facebook groups is my #2 marketing strategy. Is it yours? Are you doing it effectively? Are you seeing paying clients come from it without you having to be overly sales-y?

Running Facebook groups helps create and engaged COMMUNITY that fosters relationship-based marketing. We all know how important relationship-based marketing is to cultivate the “Know-Like-Trust” factor, right?  Without your leads getting to KNOW you, LIKE you and TRUSTING you…your chance of converting them into paying customers/clients is virtually zero.

In this video I share a few tips on how I’m running facebook groups and how it’s working. I also share tips on what to post on your various Facebook pages and groups AND why you want to start a Facebook group or community.

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.

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.
