Master class 2 Homework – If you really want results…

To everyone that joined me on one of my first live master classes, thanks for being there.
I can’t tell you how nerve wracking it is!
It really is.
I bet you are thinking, you Mandie, nervous? but yes.
I get nervous too, the difference is I’m always ready to jump out of my comfort zone. I like to get so far out of my comfort zone you can’t see it any more. And as scary as that is that’s my approach. If that approach doesn’t work for you that’s fine, I’ve a nice and gentle approach for you too.
So as requested to back up this weeks’ master class here is a quick reminder of the homework;
1 Think of your favourite customer and what they said when they placed an order or paid the bill.
2 What were the words of sheer joy or absolute pain that they were experiencing? They are some of your “power words” I talk a lot about them in my online course Super charge your 60 seconds success.
3 Create 5 elevator pitches using the 5 styles I suggested and they are
T – Top tip.
R – Relevant
U – Useful
S – Successful and
T Targeted.
Again I talk a lot more about these in my online course Super charge your 60 seconds success.
4 Now work out with these 5 new elevator pitches with the power words in them how you are not just going to use them in your networking how you will integrate them in your marketing over the next week.
5 If you usually live on Facebook. What else will you add?
Could you dare to brave LinkedIn?
Could you risk the realms of Instagram?
What about a blog article about the top tip you shared and then talk about that at your next networking event? See how your marketing becomes more structured by bringing it all together?
6 And lastly as I shared in this short YouTube video what assumptions are you making and what about the follow up? You can watch that again here. https://youtu.be/PD0tsxMO0No
(None of my courses cost a lot, they genuinely work, could seriosly make a difference to your success rate and best of all if you are on social media or attend The Business Womans Network I’m happy to have a chat to really power up the results too! – Super Charge Your 60 Seconds Success you can learn more here https://www.openlearning.com/course…)

Why Should I Blog On LinkedIn & How Does Working With You Work?

A new client has no website yet and yet to really get their business seen they need to be blogging, so I suggested they use LinkedIn. They’ve created their first blog and had a moments wobble on whether they really could just put a blog on their LinkedIn profile? Would it get read? Was that professional enough? Could that really help them get seen online? Here is what I replied with in my email. It’s only a short reply however I thought it was apt for so many business owners just starting out who can’t afford a shiny sparkly website yet and yes folks LinkedIn is good for business….get it right and it can be seriously good for business! (It has been for me and my clients this year.)

Regarding your blog ideally you don’t take your target audiences away from your website (and your products and services and other great content) however since you don’t have a website Linkedin’s blog articles look good and can be easily shared so yes I would use their platform and share that way. You have to be careful with a call to action because anything remotely salesly will stop people from reading it again. If its something like “if you loved this then feel free to share/sign up/etc”. then I’d say go ahead. However until you have a following of people that are enjoying your blog, i.e. until you know people are liking it, sharing it and commenting on it I would tread carefully with adding calls to action within your blog. The market is awash with people trying to sell their wares so best to do a blog article that is genuinely fabulously good for others first and then add the CTA (Call to action). (That is my personal preference, I’m sure other marketers and content experts would advise differently. I would also say it depends if you have a good reputation already in any groups. If you do then a CTA in those groups would be fine, because you already have credibility with those people.)

And then this was something else that come up that I thought would be good to share, because I really am not interested in making sacks of cash out of any one person, I genuinely just want to help as many people as possible make those sacks of cash – it’s becoming a life long passion!

Regarding the business coaching it works exactly the same way as any other session with me. We work according to what you bring to the table. So looking at what goals you have set. You can work with me on a one off basis or longer and stop and start whenever you like. My clients vary. Some like to work with me every 6 weeks, others every 2 weeks, others every 3 months. It all depends on how you like to work, how big your goals are, whether you procrastinate, etc. etc. So we would start a session by looking at what you wanted to achieve, and understanding what the goals where for the session. And go from there. I don’t have a minimum spend for a client. I don’t have a silver/gold/platinum level. My clients start the session saying what they want to achieve. And throughout the session we work out how to get to that goal, short medium and long term. And if I tell you recently 1 client achieved some of their goals in 2 days (sales goals) and another achieved their business goals for the year in 3 weeks. And both of these only had 1 session with me so far. Needless to say they want to work with me again moving forward with their businesses. I’m on my clients agenda, never mine. And all clients get homework. Never more than about 5 actions, because its not realistic and clients know they can get in touch for support, advice, etc. when they wish to. I hope that helps and do feel free to get in touch to discuss this more if you wish to. I’m about this week. The goals you have set are quite clear, now you need to break them down into actions and by when. And who what where’s. Obstacles, logistics, etc.

I hope that helps, you see content can so often be transferred from one place and be utilised somewhere else. So in less than 10 minutes I’ve gained some more great content for my Marketing Production Line, not utilising yours yet? Head over to my home page and down load a copy of yours. Its my key to endless good leads and lovely sales, and good bucket full of media too.
