Today I want to talk about maximizing free gifts you offer in your business.  This is a great way to generate leads both online and at events.

I’m talking about when you go to someone’s website and see an opt-in box where you are offered a free audio, video, webinar, a drawing, free report or download to entice you to sign up for their newsletter. If you are online, you need to offer this. And, your website needs to have the functionality to display the opt-in box, you’ll need a way to deliver your gift automatically via email or on your website.

maximize free offers in your biz
You also need to have a free gift to offer when you are at a networking event. I’ve just returned from an exciting networking event and was surprised that many of the people there didn’t have a call to action at the end of their 30 second commercial to entice people to give them their business card (and permission to put them on their email list).

If you have the type of business where most people will not hire you on the spot, you need to be prepared to offer a freebie so people can experience you or your products/services and to interact with you. This is the start of the KNOW, LIKE, and TRUST relationships you want to build.

Here are some examples of a free offer:

  • A free consultation
  • A recording of one of your teleclasses or seminars
  • A video of you giving your Signature Speech or Talk
  • An Article
  • A checklist

And for you network marketers out there who have products to sell but not services, you can do a drawing.

Now if you are at networking or live events, there are 3 ways you can get more exposure for your business and generate leads with your free offer:

  • As an exhibitor
  • As an Attendee
  • As a Speaker

Check out the video below to to get great tips on how to “Create and Maximize Free Gifts in Your Business”.

So, stop wasting your time, energy and money. If you are not maximizing your free gifts, if you are not getting the results you should be and you are missing out of making more money, come talk to me. You can schedule a free session with me at askkat.biz .

I want to talk to you today about YOU – The truth about you and your message! The YOU behind the mask – the REAL YOU!

are you telling the truth about your messageI’ve talked to several people recently about speaking in their business, writing a book and doing a lot of other fun things to get more exposure, more visibility so they can grow their business and make more money. Many of these people shared BIG concerns about being vulnerable, being transparent, about sharing their story.

Most of them really didn’t know the key insight, lesson or message they have to share. They are not sure what their worth was and what their story means to other people.

If this sounds like you, I want to encourage to you STOP! Just stop for a second – stop and think about what your story is! Many times we are just too busy to see what’s right in front of us – to see what’s missing in our business, in our energy, in the way we comes across to others whether online or in person.

I can relate to this because I had similar issues in the past. But once I learned how to just be ME and be transparent in both my business and personal life, it was a time of huge growth for me. I made more money and acquired clients that were more suited to me and what I do. I’ve found that sharing more about myself, my life, and experiences has translated into finding more clients who are the people I’m meant to work with. Wouldn’t you like those kind of clients too?

Learn how to best represent yourself when you share your story. Check out the video below to get more insight and discover “Are You Really Telling The Truth”!

Come have a conversation with me – I can help you with this issues. Or if you are ready to proceed with sharing your story, I’d like to invite you to come to my next LIVE Event. It’s all about Speaking! If you are a seasoned speaker, that’s fine – glad to have you attend. I’ve found that even with most seasoned speakers, there are some things that are still missing in their message, their story, their online presence, their positioning, their revenue model.

speaking Speaker SuccessIf you know that speaking is something you should be doing, you know you need to share your story, your message; then there’s no better place than this event! We will walk you through everything you need to do and know and we show you how to set it up so you will be clear and confident about what you are talking about. That’s the biggest reason that people don’t get booked. They are not clear and confident. If this Speaker training sound good to you, go to my website to sign up at LiveBigEvents.com.

Or at least get on my email list and you’ll get contacted about having conversation with me. It’s not a sales call, no obligation! It’s all about finding out more about each other to see how we can help each other.

Talk to you again soon!

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!

You CAN host your own live event BUT be careful or you may make some of the same COSTLY mistakes I did when I first did it!!

host your own eventHosting your own event will give you extra credibility, exposure and cash flow!! But you want to learn how to launch them the right way and most affordably based on where YOU are in your business, not where the person is at that’s teaching you.

Now I’m not trying to instill fear to keep you from hosting your own event.  There are so many affordable ways to host an event!

When I first started hosting events, I didn’t have a resource to guide me or to field my questions.  I usually provide this type of coaching for only my high end clients or in my mastermind. I’m sharing some tips in the video below because I see so many entrepreneurs jumping into situations related to hosting events that will ultimately cost them a lot of money.

Here are some things to think about when hosting your own live event:

  • What do you want to sell AT the event because you won’t make your money from ticket sales?
  • How many is the minimum that you want in attendance – plan your budget for that?
  • Will you have other speakers to add to the roster and will you allow them to sell stuff?
  • Where can you hold it where it won’t cost you an arm and a leg?
  • What can you teach that isn’t too much info so they leave wanting more?
  • What else do you need for the event to be successful?
  • What do you negotiate in a contract if you’re using a hotel or venue with one?
  • Maybe it’s time to get a mentor who can help you sort through all of this so you can maximize and monetize your time and exposure!?!?!?

Check out the video below for more tips on “When is a Good Time to Host Your Own Event?”!

You CAN become an author and as a business owner, you should! It will give you extra credibility, exposure and cash flow!!

But, you should know that one of the biggest myths is that you will make money from a book. I say “ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha to that!!”

Really, most authors (unless they get published by a big time publisher and go New York Times Best Seller) won’t make money from just selling a $20 book. That’s NOT where the money is.

becoming an authorThe money is in the backend of what else are you going to sell them once they’re “in your funnel” so to speak?

What else are you selling? You want to build a business around your book, add in additional products, programs and services that correspond with what the book is about like a 6 week training, live event, audio book, home study or even coaching program possibly.

There are 3 Keys I look for what someone comes to me who has a book they want to get into more hands and for building their business around their book (even if your book is not done yet you want to work on this):

  1. What other business models do you have in place – what else can you sell?
  2. What does your online presence look like – not just a social media site or two, but your whole online platform including a kick butt and very professional website (don’t just rely on Amazon to sell your book, YOU need to!)
  3. What is your marketing strategy – you have to build a fan base for your book, followers who will read your posts, get on your email list, share your stuff and refer to you.

There are numerous things you can do for marketing your book (and your business) such as:

  • social media marketing and connecting
  • speaking live or virtually
  • holding your own events
  • getting publicity and being on TV or radio shows, podcasts and more
  • become your own host of a TV, radio or podcast show

Check out the video below for more “Secrets to Becoming an Author”!

“Secrets to Becoming an Author

So, what’s your plan?

Writing a book can be easy and fun if you get help by someone who can pull it out of you, watch todays’ video tip for more info and encouragement and reach out to talk with me if you’d like – I’m here to help you make a lot more money doing what you love!

I’ve got some great resources for you if you are interested. Just to go JumpstartYourMarketing.com and sign up to receive my tips and newsletters while  you are there.
