Rough Pic of 2014 Conference Screen Shot

It's time to evolve your marketing plan and strategy, especially if you haven't updated it in a while or if you have no real strategy at all. Being an entrepreneur in this day and age there is NO getting around being online, being visible, credible, knowledgable and informative. Let's face it, if you're not already embracing most social media platforms for whatever reason, it's time to start paying attention and get interactive online.

Are you lacking in YOUR follow up?


Have you got stacks of these around YOUR office? Massive networking and consistent, relationship marketing follow up are the two main things that I did from day one, 12 years ago, (and still do!) to build a very successful and profitable business. If you are attending networking events at least a couple times a month or more and/or speaking or being an exhibitor at live events then I would venture to guess that you are NOT doing enough follow up. NO ONE DOES! You are most likely missing out on thousands of dollars every single month due to your lack of follow up (and following up in many different ways too, not just one or two). I find (and so do many of my clients who are using my … [Read more...]

Influence is one of those words that I never thought about too much until just last year in fact. One of my speaker peers and friends mentioned it a couple times during her talk at a conference we both spoke at.
