Discover Something New to Sell

There are SO many ways to make money during this shutdown and isolation period. First of all, I can’t see it lasting much longer or the country will be in financial ruin…so stay in faith that this will all work itself out soon. However, if you can’t do “business as usual” or people aren’t buying the stuff you were selling the way you were selling it… it is time to tweak what you were doing or how you were doing it AND it could also be time to think up something else you can sell. (even if it has nothing to do with your core business)

I was on a call yesterday with a client who has an organizing company but she focuses on people when they move, so she’s a ‘move consultant’ in LA. She can’t do her business right now, working in people’s homes plus less people are “moving” during this pandemic. So one exercise that I did with her is something you can do also to help you “BRAINSTORM” new and different ideas on what you can sell perhaps now, as an additional income stream (could be temporary or long term, either way). I asked her (and this was a very hard question for her to answer frankly but I helped nudge the ideas out of her):

  • “What are you good at doing?”
  • “What questions do you get often that you like to answer and that help people?”
  • “What were you good at in the past, in past jobs or experiences (business or personal oriented)?”

I had to keep diving deep when she gave me “surface answers” to really get to the heart of what the true problem/issue was that she was so good at solving… you can do this with yourself too!

She answered things like: budgeting, managing people, getting kids to trust her and tell her anything, getting stuff done, helping people relieve stress, things not to do when dating, giving honest feedback, getting others to trust you and listen to you, positive reinforcement, setting deadlines, photography.

Do you see the possibilities with my client on what else she could potentially sell right now to pull her through?

I saw at least 3 and I shared them with her, what she could charge, etc. 

Do this if you need to figure something out quick to start generating some revenue. Then of course you have to market it and tell people about it. You have to go sell it.

It makes complete sense that someone would create a new business model in times like this so stop worrying what others will say about you “switching” your business, you’re not. You’re just getting creative, innovative and resourceful.

You can do this!! I can help you!!

Let me help you figure out how to tweak, and change up your business to thrive during ANY economy, good or bad time including this one no matter what your business is.

I’m sick and tired of entrepreneurs telling me they don’t like social media and don’t want to use it for marketing.  Or they have very strong thoughts about keeping their personal profiles separate from their business pages.  Yet, they want to make more money and get more clients!  They don’t understand how to maximize their time to get leads from social media.

This thought process is NOT helping you grow your business. What are you thinking?

Seriously? Social media is one of the biggest NETWORKING EVENTS on the planet today.

If you treat it like a big networking event then why wouldn’t you want to meet hundreds or thousands more people this way?

It’s just FASTER and frankly it’s FREE if you do what I suggest!! It baffles my mind…

Now, I have a very strategic way to engage with people on social media mind you. Many social media trainers aren’t teaching this.

I have a ton of videos on my YouTube Channel that I thought I would just share with you so you can familiarize yourself with what TO DO and what NOT TO DO on social sites.

I know I tend to be a little blunt now and then but come on…. why would you ignore or hide your head in the sand or NOT want to learn everything you could about a very important business and marketing tool that can make your life easier!?!?!

Go watch the video tips and learn a few things will ya! 

I have video tips that go back 8 years on my YouTube channel about social media… that’s how long I’ve been using this marketing strategy. Don’t wait another minute to maximize yourself and your business online please. Why would you?

And are you sure you couldn’t use some help for whatever is slowing you down right now in your business? If you don’t get help now with me, then when and with who? Isn’t it time you had a business coach to help show you how to create a smooth-running, consistently profitable business?

Join me at the next Jumpstart Your Biz Online 2 day tech training!   Go to jumpstartyourbizonline.com  to get the details and register.

I’ll bet you’re making at least one of these 4 social media mistakes and either pissing people off or missing out on leads and opportunities!

Listen in to my video tip today for some helpful dos and don’ts all about social media. What’s good social media etiquette online and definitely what will get you marked as a spammer and possibly unfriended or blocked!

I see so many people using social media for their crazy sales strategies that are NOT doing them any favor. Just like you don’t want to be “that guy” or “that girl” at the networking event that is shoving your card in people’s faces and then walking away… you do NOT want to be that person on social media sites. You can get a bad reputation just the same.

One of my biggest pet peeves I’ll share in the body of this blog post, then you have to watch the video for others, is:  when people tag me in posts that clearly have NOTHING to do with me and they get their post featured on my profile wall. ANNOYING to say the least!! Do not do this.

If you want my attention (or someone’s attention that you care about), you cannot do this, we will eventually BLOCK you or unfriend you if you continue. Pay attention and take the time to get to know me, engage with me and then ask me to support you if that’s what your goal is. But don’t force me to support you by tagging me. ARGH!!

Join my email newsletter so you never miss out on this kind of content to help you start up, grow, market and monetize your business ever again! Sign up here now.

Listen in to learn more about “Social Media Etiquette for Your Business” – the pros and cons, dos and don’ts. Go listen in!

Are you avoiding doing Video and Live Streaming?

I have some clients who are not yet doing video or livestreaming and they really need to take advantage of this powerful medium.  I invited the Video Queen, Monique Johnson to join me in a recent Facebook Live to talk about Everything Video but that video has since expired now. But read on for some quick tips and then make sure you follow me on Facebook as well as Monique here.

As you know, networking is important for the growth of your business, but let’s face it – you are not going to be able to reach as many people at going to networking events as you can when you are broadcasting Live or with a Video online. When you appear on video or a Facebook Live, it’s like an opportunity to reach (or to network) with many more people who are from several geographic areas, not only those who are in your local area.

When you are broadcasting or doing a video online, it’s like you’re attending a networking event and you are the featured speaker!

I met my friend, Monique Johnson, at an event where we were both speaking and her presentation blew me away.  She is  an expert in Video Production and in using Video and broadcasting Live.  Monique helps her clients and students get more clients by showing them how to use and harness the power of Social Video.

I got together with Monique on a Facebook Live recently to discuss “Everything Video”.  Monique shared several great tips about Live Videos and stressed the importance of repurposing your video or Live content on your social media platforms.  Here are a few of Monique’s tips that we cover in this broadcast:

  • It’s important that your Live Videos don’t die on the platform you broadcasted them on – Repurpose them.
  • Each platform has different limits for Video and Live streaming.  What you are publishing YouTube isn’t the same as what you will be publishing on Instagram.
  • If your Video is longer than the length the platform you want to share it on will allow, you simply edit it to show shorter videos like snippets, teasers, and highlights.
  • You don’t have to invest in a lot of expensive equipment to get started.  A smartphone is all you need.

Do you know all of the broadcast limit of each social media platform?

If you missed our Facebook Live, go follow us online and catch the next one!

Be sure to check out Monique’s Group to learn more about creating Videos and Live Streams for your business.

Come on! It’s YOUR Time to shine online!!

Today I want to give you some Holiday Marketing Tips to help you get more clients!

It’s crunch time, we are nearing the middle of December, and you want end the year strong with more income that you’ve made so far in your business, right?. Who doesn’t?

But what is actually going on in December? Lots of distractions, that’s what! Holiday parties, holiday luncheons, holiday shopping expos, and so on. But think about it, there is not a lot of business networking going on during the month.

So what is your plan to find those prospects who are actually ready and willing to buy from you in December, something that is not holiday oriented or a holiday gift to buy?

The number one goal is to get people on the phone with you! If you are an online marketer, are all of your prospects also online? Are you sure they are seeing all of the things on your website that you have for sale?

And what about your higher priced offerings. When people have their mind on the holidays, they are less likely to click the button to purchase your $200 offering. People who are going to pay a few hundred dollars or a few thousand dollars with you will most likely want to have a conversation with you first.

So how will you generate someone’s interest to have a phone conversation with you?

Click the video below to learn more Marketing Tips for the Holidays – #1 Thing to do to Get Clients!

 

Get more personal, pick up the telephone, and have a conversation. Reach out to people, one by one to schedule those conversations and I think you’ll find more success during this month even though many people are focused on the holidays!

If you want more information about how I can help you Jumpstart Your Business, come to a call with me. I can help you prioritize and organize your plans, get focus and clarity, help you plot out your Big Picture for the following year, and so much more. Don’t wait because my calendar is filling up fast. Come to a call with me this month. I want to help you make a Big impact, make Big changes, and make Big money in the coming year.

Today I’m super excited to give you another Video Biz Tip – it’s all about plotting out your Marketing Calendar!

Are you an entrepreneur who is not sure what you should be doing every month or every week? This post and the video below is a snapshot for those of you who are not sure how you should be spending your time or if you are outside of your office and in front of others enough to promote yourself and your business. This is one of the topics we cover in my Live Big Mastermind and at my Live Events, like we just did at my “Jumpstart Your Biz in a Weekend” event a few days ago, see the example in the video. Just remember to plot your marketing calendar and BE CONSISTENT! Consistency is the KEY in a good marketing strategy.

marketing calendarAre you blogging consistently? What about Facebook LIVE videos – are you using this tool to reach the people who want to hear your message? If not, you should be. What about Networking? What events did you have planned for the month? And are you calendaring your Follow-Up after the networking events? If not, you need to start doing that. There’s profit in your follow-up. If you don’t know what to do, I have a system of techniques, templates, and scripts – everything you need to create your own Follow Up system that WORKS!

The video below gives an example of a monthly marketing calendar with detailed explanation.

Check out the video below for more tips on “What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

“What’s Your Marketing Calendar Look Like?”

This example is generic. I help my clients customize their marketing calendar that is specific to their business.

There are so many ways you can engage with me personally, such as my LIVE Events, my Live Big Mastermind program, and coaching calls. I’m happy to do a one-time coaching call with you to get you on the right track, if you are not ready to dive into a coaching program.

You can also learn what you should be doing on specific parts of your marketing via my recordings and trainings. My “Marketing Basics for Consistent Cash Flow” is an amazing webinar series. It’s a simple, indepth training on the Top 10 Marketing Strategies and it’s affordably priced. You can find it at LiveBigEvents.com and look for the Webinar on the top navigation window on that page.

I’m also launching the Entrepreneur Training Academy very soon so watch for the announcement about that in your inbox or on Social Media. It’s a 6 month program for entrepreneurs to teach you everything you need to know, from A to Z, on how to start, market, and grow your business to make it a consistent, revenue generating business.

Here’s to Your Success!
