Re-Purposing to Generate Leads

There are several ways to generate leads for your business.  Many entrepreneurs think it’s necessary to bring in suspects like everyone else does.  The truth is, there are many re-purposed ways to generate new leads.  Here are a few: 1.  Re-market:  Do you have a product or service you’ve marketed in the past?  If it’s been awhile since you’ve promoted or launched something, then create a new message and get it out there…again.  Think about updating a few things here and there and then get promoting!  You can promote on social media, on your website, in an email blast, or within your store. 2.  Re-blog:  Do you blog on a very consistent basis?  If you have an archive of hundreds of blog posts, then re-write them.  There’s no need to re-invent the wheel.  You have great content just waiting to be read…again.  You may want to make sure all information is still relevant and maybe change the titles, but that’s all you really need to do. 3.  Re-engage:  Don’t forget that you already have a HUGE database of clients and fans of your business.  Re-engage them!  Ask them to refer you to somebody who doesn’t know anything about your business.  Give them a special discount for sharing your business with others!  Use what’s already at your fingertips! Reaching out to your audience doesn’t have to seem like rocket science.  You have so many options within your reach, so why not use them to your advantage!  Re-purposing can save time and money.  And it’s all within your reach.

5 Ways to Stay Positive

It’s admittedly difficult to have a happy disposition 100% of the time.  But it is achievable to think positive when faced with difficulty.  You can learn to adjust your bad attitude and convey a happy temperament.  Here are some tips: 1.  Successful people are often more positive because they have conditioned themselves to recognize their emotions.  Your emotions drive and motive you.  They are not barriers, but often seem like they are.  By staying positive, you won’t get overwhelmed when something goes wrong. 2.  Positive-minded people can accept failure.  You need to approach challenges believing that you will succeed or that you will take something positive from your failure and do better the next time around. 3.  Happy, positive people often set many goals for themselves.  Goals help you stay motivated.  Stay on task.  Keep setting goals…meet one and start another one.  Desire to do better. 4.  Have some gratitude along the way.  Positive individuals are thankful for the people in their lives and for the things they have.  Remember, when you have to strive for something (like all those goals you are setting), you are usually more grateful for them because you earned them.  They weren’t just handed to you.  You created them and reached them!  That sure is something to be happy about! 5.  Positive people are easier and more pleasant to be around.  And happiness is contagious.  If you’re positive, you generally will attract other positive people.  Happiness comes back around because of the impact it has on others. Continue to stay positive and you will sustain success.  Whether it’s in your personal life or your business life, continue to learn, attend lectures, read, hone in on your skills and learn something new.  Your passions will continue to keep you happy!  And happiness is the key to being successful!

4 Simple Steps to Getting Referrals

Most entrepreneurs agree that getting referrals is a key component to keeping their business successful.  But many of them don’t think they get enough, or ask for them as often as they would like to.  Why don’t you pursue them as much as you should?  Perhaps it’s because you are not developing the habit of doing so. 1.  Determine ways to actively pursue your clients.  Make it a habit to provide valuable information to them, so they will want to pass it onto someone else who might benefit from it. 2.  Give out special deals to those who refer others to you.  Impress them with your dedication and drive. 3.  If you get complimented on your work, thank them and automatically ask them if they know anybody else who could use your services. 4.  Keep track of how many referrals you ask for each day or each week.  Write it down or strive for a goal each month. You’d be amazed at how many referrals you’ll get by keeping yourself in the routine of these 4 simple steps.  And always remember to be consistent and enthusiastic when asking for referrals and when sharing your business with others!!

Looking For High-End Clients?

As an Entrepreneur, you know that high-end clients can create a big difference in the profitability of your business.  They want quality and don’t care about how much they need to spend to get it.  However, you can’t just expect these clients to come to you! You need to understand the way these professionals think and know how they operate. Here are 5 steps that will help you attract high-end clients: 1.  Don’t provide budget-friendly solutions. High-end clients want quality work and will pay high-end prices to get it.  Your price should be competitive and professional. 2.  Give attention to detail. High-end clients notice the small details.  Strive to be the best that you can afford. You need to be reliable and worthy of respect. 3.  Provide rewards for the big spenders. Add things of high value to your main offers.  Give them something special to entice them to your main offer.  And give them something after the main offer…something they can continue to use. 4.  Offer superior customer service. Don’t just stop the communication with your clients because they purchase one of your services.  Consistently provide customer support along the way, ready to help when they need it. 5.  Demonstrate your expertise. When you provide strong lead generation, you demonstrate areas of authority. Create the content that will bring high-end clients to you for your expertise in the industry.   PJ's New Pic (smaller)  ActionCoach-logo

5 Ways to Keep Your Business Organized

As a business owner, we all try to find ways to save time.  Since being productive in the workplace is a huge deal, keeping your business organized is something that everyone needs.  Remember this…to be productive, you need to be organized! Being disorganized creates clutter, diminishes focus, and causes anxiety.  Here are some ideas that will help you get MORE accomplished in LESS time. 1.  Join the Cloud Don’t let your computer die and turn your life upside down.  Plus, when you’re on the road, you will have access to information at all times!  Great for busy owners who are running from appointments to meetings. 2.  Social Media Software Keeping up with social media can be a nightmare.  Consider signing up for software to automate your messages and to keep them all on one platform.  Great time savers!! 3.  Clear off your Desk A clean and organized working environment can improve productivity!  Not only keeping your desk clean, but your computer screen clean, will help you focus and be more efficient. 4.  Get an Online Calendar Keep all your appointments organized with an online calendar.  All you will have to do is put the link to the calendar in your email signature.  Then, everyone you come into contact with through email can sign up for that free consult you always talk about. Super convenient!!! 5.  Hire a Virtual Assistant Not only can a virtual assistant help you with all the above tasks (to make your life easier), but she can help you with any other tedious, time-consuming tasks that you often avoid. Believe it or not, this is also a “organization” tool. Keeping your business organized leads into your personal life more than you may realize. If you can get out of the office at a decent time each night, then you will have more family/personal time, which then creates less stress and more productivity!   PJ's New Pic (smaller)  ActionCoach-logo
