Video: Facebook and other Social Media Tips

In today's video, I share some hot tips about social media as well as a couple of tips that you don't want to be doing on Facebook. Here's a quick summary of the tips - watch the video for full info: Be careful using Facebook for your client / private groups (have a backup). Sending messages to say "please go like my page..." - this one is a pet peeve of mine, your messages asking to like your page is not an effective use of your time. Take the online relationship offline and connect. Make sure your contact info is complete!

10 Simple Ways to Follow Up with Prospects

directions signs and sky

In any business it's important to develop simple follow up systems to keep on top of your prospects', customer's and referral sources' minds. If you don't do your follow up; you are wasting valuable marketing dollars and time you've already spent on gathering new leads. I used to do a lot of networking at chamber events, women's organizations and biz expos and I generally collected about 25-50 business cards from new contacts on a good week. I pay an assistant to enter them all into my computer database for me so I can easily mail merge them when I want to send out a mailer. I also enter them into my email database because I usually ask them in person if they want to receive my free … [Read more...]

What’s Up With All the ‘Mastermind Programs’ Out There and WHY Should I Consider Joining One Myself ? (Part 3)

mastermind

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been talking with you about Mastermind programs. Why you should join, what they are, what the are not and which one would be the best fit for you. But ultimately…. What it all comes down to is how do you most like to learn and how are you most productive? You have to know your best learning style so you choose and invest in the programs and products that fit you and how you best learn so you don’t waste your money. I, for example, am NOT a good product learner. I don’t have good luck purchasing a home study kit or other listen to/read type of product and then actually sitting down working my way through it. It will sit on my shelf forever … [Read more...]

What’s Up With All the ‘Mastermind Programs’ Out There and WHY Should I Consider Joining One Myself ? (Part 1)

katrinasawa-qblmngjykujmbrbbbkuavhgydfjjemnc-v2

I woke up this morning and couldn't get back to sleep without writing this because I think it's so important...this was confusing to me a few years ago too when I first started joining mastermind programs and high level coaching programs. I know many of you are reading other people's ezines and promotions and following other coaches and mentors as well....as you should; but I'm hearing that you're confused. With all the coaching and mastermind options out there right now, all of the 2012 mid-year groups are now forming...not only mine but a couple of my mentors', other coaches like me and more; you're confused as to which one is right for you?

iStock_000001354515XSmall1

Ready to Find Out What You REALLY Need to do to Attract Clients and Make Money Now? The top questions I hear from entrepreneurs are “How do I find clients” and “How can I make more money?” So how do you do it?  How do you continuously attract and find new clients, build the business that excites you and make more money … all at the same time?

They need their ‘next steps’ yet they’re being enticed with ‘bright shiny objects’ that distract them from reaching their big … [Read more...]
