Where do you want to be 3, 5, 10 years from now?  What’s keeping you from enjoying the lifestyle you really want? Or from designing a profitable business around doing what you love?

Worry? Stress? Doubt? Money? Time? Others? Mindset?

I believe anyone can build the business of their dreams doing what they love IF they learn how to do so.

Most people however, when they set out to start up their own business, just think they can print a business card and design a quick website and have a business make them money. That’s not reality however.

The truth is, it takes time and training to be a business owner. We aren’t all born with the “how to know how to start and run a successful business” gene. We need to learn what to do and how to do it.

Take a nurse for example. If you wanted to become a nurse, you wouldn’t just walk into a hospital in some scrubs you bought for yourself and start poking people with needles right? You’d go to Nursing School for a few years to learn EXACTLY WHAT TO DO and how to do your job.

And even an attorney has to go to Law School. They can’t just walk into a courtroom and start trying a case! That would be against the law plus they’d most likely lose their case since they wouldn’t know what they’re doing right?

Yet entrepreneurs often think they can walk into their own business and start helping clients or selling their products and services without proper training. Now if you have previous sales and marketing training from another job or school, you could probably get somewhat far making money, you could. But you’ll get stuck somewhere. Most likely it will be in how to run your business efficiently and how not to be in chaos in the back end.

And for those without any or much sales and marketing training at all but maybe you know the backend systems, processes, financial end of it all, etc. you will most likely not know how to effectively sell or convert enough clients into your services in order to reach your goals.

There is so much to know when you start up your own business that it just makes sense to get help. It’s a lot faster too. Don’t fall into this trap and get stuck wasting time or money in the wrong places and not seeing results soon.

Here are 5 Simple Steps to Turning Your Ideas & Passions Into a Moneymaking Business:

#1:  Define your vision – think really BIG! (the new plan)

#2:  Choose your model (s) – do what feels right today

  • The Key to Designing Your Business Around the Kind of Lifestyle You Want to Live is…LEVERAGE
  • What can you add: membership model, group program, live event, online classes, teleclasses/webinars, ebooks and products, etc.?

#3: Basic business set up – technology, systems, team

  • Get the Help & Training You Need to Develop the Big Picture Plan for Your Business
  • Learn & Create Systems
    • Implement automated processes online for sales, follow up, communication, lead generation, etc.
  • Develop & Prewrite Templates
    • Write templates for follow up and other marketing tasks to delegate or reach more people faster
  • Duplicate & Replace Yourself
    • At home or work – hire someone to clean house or mow the lawn plus add team members

#4: Jumpstart your marketing – take massive imperfect action, implement like crazy

  •  Get in front of more people, more often and in more ways – massive marketing and lead generation is needed, more than most people think!
  •  Make it easier for people to buy – use online technology and your website as the hub of your business but also have Easy Yes Offers in person to make fast cash.
  •  Create your interactive, relationship marketing, follow up and sales system so that you can funnel more of the right prospects in at one time, not having to touch them all individually yourself right off the bat.

#5: Evolve – reflect, revise & what’s next?

The first and one of the most important steps to Relationship Marketing is to realize your UNIQUE TARGET MARKET – narrow it down as much as possible because you aren’t going to be able to afford to market to everyone with your time or your money – guaranteed.

So narrow it, niche it out, identify characteristics or demographics about your favorite type client that you like and duplicate it. EVERYTHING YOU DO REVOLVES AROUND YOUR TARGET MARKET – where you advertise, what you say in those ads, what you put on a flyer or brochure or your website, where you network and what you say when you follow up – the target market is the key.

Then when you figure out who you want to work with you need to find out what their Hot Buttons are. Because what matters most to your prospects about your products and services is going to be what you communicate to them about in your marketing messages. If you aren’t sure what their Hot Buttons are, then conduct a survey and go find out.

Relationship marketing isn’t hard, but you do need to know the basics in order for it to be worth your time and effort.  My Relationship Marketing 2-Part Webinar give you step-by-step instructions on how to get the most out of in-person marketing.  Check it out here!

Here are some testimonials from the Free Teleclass I did about Relationship Marketing called “How To Work The Room For Lead Generation at Networking Events, Tradeshows and Speaking Gigs” where I shared a bunch of info for free – so imagine what you’re going to learn when you invest in the 2 part webinar!!

“I have known Katrina Sawa since December and met her when I put out a friend request on facebook. Let me tell you, very few requests come back with a conversation asking me about myself. We became close very quicky and shared with each other our personal plans for Christmas. She is so intuitive, friendly and caring about other people and doesn’t have an agenda. I can tell her business is on fire and she deserves all of the success she can get because she is an authority on so many different topics. Her level of knowledge astounds me and she gives away so much of it freely. I wish her a very successful year and look forward to interviewing her. She is one of the best!” ~ Sarah Wood, Toronto, Ontario, Evolving Advisors, http://www.evolvingadvisors.com/

“I just listened to the recording of her free teleclass – Work The Room For Leads. It was fabulous! I just met Katrina at an event in Utah and I love her feisty, funny, vibrant nature. I love the way she works a room standing completely in her power and authentically connecting with everyone she meets. Her teleclass was so useful because Katrina gave a lot of tough love in terms of how we entrepreneurs tend to not follow-up with people we meet at live events and how to network effectively. Listen to the teleclass to find out why you need to ditch those “coffee dates” you’ve been making with potential clients and partners! Thanks so much, Katrina.” ~ Dr. Vrunda Davé, The Small Biz Marketing Specialist, www.VrundaDave.com

“What a fabulous teleseminar last night about How to Work the Room for Leads at Networking Functions! I just listened this morning, and it was so chock full of tips and information I think my head might explode! The best takeaways I got from it were having a special offer ready (different from what’s on your site), having business cards/order forms ready, be ready to connect, not putting off connecting for another time, no “coffee dates” (something I dislike generally anyway, so, yay!), “auto-adds” and “not-auto-adds”, go to many networking events, and follow-up!” ~ Jill Goldman, The Go-To Person for Pain Relief, www.FixYourOwnPain.com

“Katrina you crack me up…listening to the recording of your networking for building business call and you just said, “When I said ‘I want to educate, motivate, and inspire you to make smarter marketing and business decisions’ I’m not kidding” and followed that up with “I don’t want to be your coach forever, I want to help you get over that hump you are in” …Not only did I laugh out loud but re-listened about 5 times to those comments because what strikes me the most powerfully about that is your commitment to authenticity and what you want to do with your business…which I get is to help people not NEED your ground-level help anymore so they can get their stuff handled. Then, if they choose to, they can play with you at a much higher/deeper level… You really crack me up – your speed of information always makes me smile. You are a human firehose of great information. Hey – that should be your new tagline!…Love you Kat” ~ Richard Jules Hassman

“Hi Katrina, Thanks so much for your free tele class on How to work a room for leads! I have done events in the past and really want to maximize sign ups next time. I really enjoy your personal style of training & appreciate the help!” ~ Vicky Egar-Klein, Redding, CA, Up Your PH, www.up-your-ph.com/

“Katrina, thanks for the great webinar, https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/worktheroomforleads Love the reminder to always be ready: with a special offer, with order forms, to close a sale!!!” ~ Essentially Healed, Corvallis, Oregon, www.essentiallyhealed.com/

I’ve done probably over 100 different displays for my business alone in the last few years and I keep learning in fact on what works and what doesn’t. But for the most part I’ve managed to figure out how to pick the right shows for me, think up the right promotions, plan out a good follow up strategy and design an effective purpose and plan of action for the events themselves.

I have all this knowledge and expertise in this area and I wanted an easy way to share it with you so you wouldn’t waste a bunch of your own time or money figuring it out the hard way like I see so many business owners doing when I go to shows.

So ask yourself these questions:

  1. Have you displayed at a tradeshow or biz expo and when it was all over you had nothing to show for it but hundreds or thousands of dollars spent on marketing materials and your time?
  2. Do you want to find out how to make more sales and contacts from tradeshows and biz expos whether you’re a vendor, speaker or just an attendee?
  3. Have you attended a tradeshow or biz expo and not gotten anything out of it – meaning you didn’t get even one contact that developed into more business or more money?

If you answered “Yes” to any of my questions then you need to listen to the recording of my FREE teleclass: “How to Work the Room For Lead Generation at Networking Events, Tradeshows and Speaking Gigs

During the call I announced a contest and the winner would receive a free seat in my upcoming Webinar Training on Relationship Marketing. Go to https://jumpstartyourmarketing.com/worktheroomforleads and sign up to get the recording to get more details but it was for whoever posted the best testimonial for me basically on my facebook fan page www.facebook.com/jumpstartyourmarketing by the end of the day this Sunday (February 19, 2012). The winner would be chosen mostly by whoever’s comment had the most like’s on it and partially by me. So you’d want to post something then go drive traffic there to get people to like the comment. You can do a written testimonial or video – but remember the BEST one wins!
