Katrina Sawa’s Top 20 Networking Tips, Part 1 of 2

Kat at a WINK networking event in San Diego, Nov 2011

If you're a small business owner looking to grow your business fast, then you want to get networking! Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Sure you can network online too but you most likely won't gain the trust and credibility as fast as you will when you meet your prospects in person, face-to-face. Networking continues to be one of my BEST sources of lead generation even now, 12 years into my business. I highly recommend it to ALL of my clients as well as their #1 marketing strategy. I'm not "too good" to network and go to some chicken dinner either like some coaches who've been in business as long as I … [Read more...]

Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Here is a quick 6 STEP networking and follow up guide for you: Have you defined your target market? Are you sure? Who is your ideal client?   … [Read more...]

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. But it's more than just "being" on social media, there is a lot more to pay attention to and this can help. I recently returned from a pretty big social media and digital marketing conference and there were a few key things that I gleaned from this … [Read more...]

Are you lacking in YOUR follow up?

bizcards

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...]

It’s not always the case but usually. That’s why we give free gifts on our websites, do free talks and teleseminars and why we write articles on our blogs and more.
