7 reasons why your business is failing and how to fix it

Owning your own business is awesome when it works, but it can also be frustrating when you don’t get the results you want. I’ve helped over 10,000 people to grow businesses. Often with no budget or time, often quadrupling profits in a short amount of time, so let’s look at 7 reasons why your business is failing and how to fix it

1. Relying on social.

Social media should be part of your marketing strategy, not it’s entirety. Imagine Facebook disappeared tomorrow, what would you do? I often find business owners pouring tons of time (and money) into social media but without altering the next 6 fails they will fail to make it work. Social media is reliant on you doing something — either physically adding content and/or spending money. Consider blogging works 24/7 and is evergreen marketing — i.e., it works when you aren’t.

This graphic is not the prettiest, but it sums up how you need to think about marketing — what 8 to 10 tools will you use?


2. Not really knowing your audience and why they buy from you

When you start a business it’s great when people are buying, but if you don’t know the science behind why people buy you are missing out on the opportunity to get people buying often with little input from you. All of my clients can tell you where they met their clients, what issues their clients have, where they like to shop, even what TV shows they like and what car they are likely to drive. Knowing this information is essential. When I teach people how to blog or communicate to sell, I teach them how to find the power words and the power sentences. These are the powerful hooks that make people want to learn more.

3. Not keeping an eye on the competition, trends, consumers.

If you can’t tell me what your competition are charging, what they are selling and how they are getting to their customers, you are missing a trick. If you can’t tell me whether your customers are using Tik Tok or Facebook, real books or electronic, you are missing a trick. Trends change. In marketing the humble leaflet went through years of neglect. Now it’s back with a vengeance as we tire of looking at screens and want something tangible. Our needs change all the time. You don’t need to obsess about the competition, but you do need to know what they are doing and how it could impact on you and your customers. Remember competition is also an opportunity for collaboration.

4. Not knowing your numbers.

If you want to grow, you first need to know where you are. How many followers on social media? How much interaction? How many visits to your website? How many sales? What were they buying? I can help a company increase profit just by looking at the numbers and working out what to sell, what to promote and what to increase in price. It’s scary increasing prices, so the next fail is essential to learn from.

5. Not asking for help.

When I set up my own business in the 2008 recession, I made the mistake of trusting everyone I met. That was ridiculous, it led me to spending money on things I couldn’t afford and weren’t essential to getting a business off the ground. I learnt the hard way, so you don’t have to. Don’t assume that someone on social media with an ability to use Canva to make pretty posts is going to be good for business. Last year I saw new clients who had gone elsewhere before working with me who had collectively wasted over £150,000!

Ask for proof that person / business can help so you don’t go it alone. It will be so much harder I promise you. I’ve a mastermind group you can join for £10. Why is it so cheap? Because I live by my tagline “As passionate about your success as you are”. Look for people like me and ask for proof. You want to actually speak to happy customers, so you know your profits are being invested in the right places. It will be essential to have the right help to ensure you don’t fall for the next fail.

6. Not being consistent.

In business I tell clients that if they want to grow their business, they need to find 25% of their time to do it in. You have to be consistent in anything you want to get results in. But don’t fight who you are. If you don’t like structured goals, then keep it fluid with a basic structure that is allowed to be deviated from.

If you need structure, then check your diary and schedule time to get it done. Do you need a whole day a week? A half day? Or will you get bored? In which case make it 30-minute chunks. Be consistent in your marketing, your customer care, your networking, your growth and your attention to your health too. This is another reason why working with a coach is so powerful because we not only help you write the plan and its actions, but we also make sure you take action and get the results you said you would!

7. Not following up

And lastly of all the fails in business, not following upis a crime against your success. Many of my business owner clients make more money just from following up. Before you go looking for new business, you will be amazed how much you can do with your existing client base. Get in touch with past customers, ask them to recommend you and/or leave a review. Google My business is a neglected tool to business growth — you don’t need a million reviews to benefit from local targeted traffic.

It does involve confidence to do effective follow up but then a successful business will always need confidence, so always make sure that’s on your side.

Not interested in doing that?

Mandie’s Sales Mountain

People often ask me “How can we get people to spend more with us?” and my Sales Mountain is a great way to help people to climb your sales mountain.

Get this right and people don’t just buy once, they become brand ambassadors (telling everyone!) And it enables you to up sell, side sell and re sell – with less effort!

Take the time to answer the questions on each level of Mandie’s Sales Mountain and this information can be then transferred to your marketing strategy and drives the content you create, the style of communication and what products and services you offer.

Often people have great ideas but limited connection between everything. The more powerful and succinct your message, the easier it is for customers to see why they should buy from you and how they can do that.

And it is important to remember that people like to hold on to their beliefs – so their “No’s” on why they aren’t buying won’t be fixed by you selling at them. You have to enable them to explore this for themselves, in a low risk, safe way so that they change their mind naturally – the science and psychology of a sale is fascinating and getting your sales mountain right makes that happen.

In my new course that looks at how to find your target audiences the sales mountain is great for helping you speak in different ways to different audiences and even ensure you manage your time better – spending the most time with the people that spend the most – a mistake many businesses make is investing hard in trying to change people’s mind. It rarely works that way and you can quickly become a busy fool.

And if you really want to put this into action in your business – check out my Marketing Production Line – I’m really pleased with the calibre of results my online course clients get. Learn more here

Want to put this into action and test and measure the quality of your findings? The Insiders could be a great way to ensure you take action, stay focused and learn what you need to. It’s only £5 a month and it’s my Confidential Mastermind Group – and the Insiders are a truly awesome group of business owners from around the world. Do join us! Learn more here.

And if you benefit from this quick read a thank you by pressing the donate button is much appreciated. Do let me know what actions you take. I aim to be accessible to all businesses and the donate button means that those that can not afford or justify investing in coaching at this time can still get some of the tools and strategies that help my clients grow very successful businesses.

How To Get Bum’s On Seats

I have been asked on thousands of occasions “How do I get bums on seats?” “How can I get people to turn up?”

In a society where people have sussed that getting people to “see” what you do, enables sales the market is saturated with events to attend. From charity events, parties, MLM presentations, networking open days, taster days, surgeries, the list is endless. So no wonder getting bums on seats is not so easy.

Having hosted thousands events and as the network I founded The Business Womans Network comes up to celebrating it’s 10th birthday, I can safely say I know how to get bums on seats.

Why the weather can impact on sales.

How to sell tickets for your Christmas event from the South of France in July when your phone is turned off – heck you don’t know where it is!

And even how to get MP’s, journalists and TV celebrities to turn up!

So here are my quick top tips for making your event an ultimate success;

  1. The first thing I want you to remember is that because of my illness (Lupus) I am not able to work as many hours as I would like or use many of the routes to market that may be open to you, thus what I’m saying is, that if I can fill a course in 24 hours, if I can work with a small team to make ££££’s for charity in one evening with only 3 weeks prep, if I can make my networking group grow continuously, then these top tips WILL work if you get this right. (that was my bossy, kick butt voice, did you get that? It’s only because I genuinely care about you getting results.)
  2. Get yourself known as a thought leader first. Its a bit of a catch 22 situation, however if you want someone to attend your event, you need to make it obvious for them, that they should choose you over someone else. If I “Google” you online, what will I see? What would your target audience see? Wherever someone finds you it has to all add up to the same image, the same clear “This is what we do, and we do it exceptionally well.” How do you walk the walk on line and off line? Remember many people I’m working with right now have come to me over anyone else because of my online presence, wherever you go, you get the same version of Mandie Holgate. True authenticity and reputation speak to your clients often before you get the chance to – Can you say the same?
  3. Prove it. You’ve now got the perfect online image that says “we are the experts to learn from.” now prove it. Who have you worked with? Are your testimonials hidden on one page? Are they utilised across your entire marketing strategy?
  4. Results. Okay testimonials are lovely, but anyone can say something nice about you. It can end up as powerful as a like on Facebook (and a lot of likes does not equate to a lot of success), and lets be honest, I’ve only got 900ish likes on Facebook because I’ve never asked for a like. Okay across Twitter on my 2 accounts I’ve 8000+, however wherever I am on line they are genuine likes, and not the generic “Oooo if you like me, I will like you.” So you need to showcase in every aspect of your marketing the results that people can expect. How did you make that customer feel? What impact did it have on their life? Their Business? Their Success? Get specific. Use statistics and facts. Reinforce why people must attend your event.
  5. What’s that word of mouth saying? Quite often we “think” we are known for one thing and in actual fact it can be something else entirely. So find out. What do people actually feel you are good at? What do people feel you lack skill in? Tell people they have carte blanch right to be honest here. Remember criticism is your chance to learn and be a better version of you.
  6. Are you dynamic? Okay this one is a tad harsh, but hey you come to me for answers, and I won’t shy away from the harder ones to address…..so, remember when you were at school, the kid that you were friends with and got invited to their party and yet you questioned whether you should go, because that kid was considered “Uncool.” Do you feel people would want to spend the day/evening with you? Do you have pizazz? Can people believe that you are the expert that won’t bore them to death? In my experience sometimes really intelligent people, actually make poor trainers as they can lack people skills to appreciate other peoples needs and agendas. So are you someone that people want to spend time with? (And if you feel you lack charm or people skills – they are all learn-able – and I teach them.)
  7. Check your ooziness. Leading on nicely from pizazz, do you ooozzzzzeee the passion for the subject you want to host an event on? People buy into passion. We buy certain products because of the way they make us feel. So do you ooze the “Wowness”?
  8. Stop selling at people. Posting the link to your event a thousand time will not equate to a thousand guests, it will equate to a thousand people thinking “is that all they can talk abut!” Blog, share great images, share top tips, I find that I don’t need to sell my books, courses, training or coaching. Sharing enables people to see I’m their expert of choice and they buy into me as a product. So don’t sell at people, enable people to buy into you and feel like they are part of the cool team.
  9. After any event, no matter how small a group you end up with, its a start. Ensure you take pictures, and make sure there are no empty chairs in view. Remember if it is a small group, the only people that will know that are those that where in the room, and if you made them feel amazing, and if they walk out of the room thinking it was amazing, they will talk more about that feeling and what they learned than about how small the group was. If anything they will want to see it happen again and so will be happy to get involved in spreading the word for the next one, so how will you utilise that?
  10. Of all of these points work but don’t forget if you want to get bums on seats ask yourself “Do I utilise 8 to 10 tools off of Mandie’s Marketing Production Line.”
I have helped a lot of organisers of events, hotels, event management companies, networks, charities, marketing agencies, coach’s, therapists, accountants and even financial advisers get bums on seats for their events and ensure they get maximum benefit for their business out of the experience.
I’m happy to have a chat with you to assist and usually this is just a 2 hour coaching session and you are flying high – okay you get a lot of homework, a lot of back burner ideas, an action plan and a coach that will care about you forever – sorry I can’t help the last bit. I care passionately about your success – even if we only work together for 2 hours in your entire life!

“Hi, you don’t know me but let me sell at you…..”

A little rant today I’m afraid….Hope you get it and helps you…

“Hi Mandie,

Thank you for connecting with me, I’ve not qualified myself for this communication but hey let’s get right in there and let me tell you why I’m brilliant, and no matter how successful you are, and I know I don’t know you at all since we connected 7 minutes ago here on LinkedIn I know you aren’t as successful as you could be because you don’t have me in your life (hey that may sound arrogant but I started selling at you in a message 7 minutes after connecting with you, so what were you expecting?)

So I’ve got this programme/proven plan/8 figure strategy that will revolutionise your life (see again I’m assuming your business is in dire straits and you need me? Did you see that twice in our first ever communication? I’m really connecting with you aren’t I!)

I’m now going to waffle on for another 4 paragraphs telling you how fabulous I am and about the many amazing things I’ve achieved with my clients who are all living perfect lives so surely that qualifies me to jump on a call with you so I can close the deal? When do you want that call today or tomorrow?”

Great message right? Okay so I may have been a little sarcastic here, however what has sparked this growing trend in this type of spam?

Does it work? Is it about crunching the numbers and for every person like me that is irratated by the rudeness and lack of professionalism there are 8 people that are happy to jump on that call?

On researching for this article I discovered that according to LinkedIn (the ones in the know!) there is no right time or wrong time to get in touch according to best day of the week or time of the day however it is the short and concise messages that were directed to individuals who you tailored your message to them (just them, not a thousand people that fit a profile like them) that got the best results.

In other words, your bulk sending of spam is not going to work as well as getting to know people and build relationships!

I can’t be the only one bored by these people who have no respect for my time? I love my online network, and I’m happy to have direct conversations learning more about you and what you do. (Remember the bigger your network and the more well informed you are about your network the more useful you can be, the more opportunities you naturally get to touch base and to help and you stick  in people’s minds for all the right reasons. The perfect example is again this week I had the kind of message I often get “Mandie we are open a new restaurant who do you think we need to invite?” Do you think that kind of request comes about because I post a lot or because I’ve a genuine interest in knowing my online community?

It is also the reason I get rebooked as a speaker for big exhibitions and events because they know they can trust me to support them and their planned outcomes, not sell at their audiences and make a difference – all constantly reflected in my online communication. It gives you something to think about right?

Ultimately these spam messages rarely work on someone you’ve just connect with because it is still about building relationships and listening. These direct messages miss out on the foundations of communication success;

  • Assuming I need what you have.
  • Not listening to find out what I feel I really need and want.
  • Not introducing yourself and building a relationship.
  • Not qualifying your right to share more about what you do and how you may help me, that only happens after I’ve learnt to trust your reasons for connecting with me.
  • Not respecting me as a business owner and assuming I’m failing (that does wonders for building relationships to start a message assuming the other person is a failure doesn’t it?)
  • Not respecting my time and that I’ve got nothing better to do than wait for you to call me. Do they think I’m sat here with nothing to do thinking “Wow I wish someone would message me with a 8 figure fix to my business. (If they had bothered to even read my profile they would know that talk like that is going to turn me off faster than an invite to dinner from Donald Trump!)

These direct sales messages remind me of some business owners that start to share how and why you MUST work with them, and they don’t realise that the potential customer will get there in their own time, not in theirs. As I often tell clients it is not your job to sell at potential clients it is your job to showcase why you and enable them to get there “naturally” in their own time. (When you learn sales processes, your target audiences and the communication that is powerful to your business it becomes a lot easier and is the science of getting customers returning again and again and telling everyone about you too! You flow at sales when you know this knowledge, not by spamming everyone you can connect with!

Communication is a fundamental power to our business success. In every aspect of our professional lives we have to be able to communicate powerfully (and if you want your personal life to run smoothly communication is just as powerful there.) So the next time you communicate with someone you feel you could help don’t be on your agenda, be on theirs.

Don’t assume.

Don’t sell.

And don’t send diatribe like the above. Which is becoming a daily delete exercise for so many busy people. And guess what how likely are you to read / stay connected / or follow up on any of their future posts?

Crazy move right?

I’m incredibly honest and won’t waste your time, so if you have something you’d like to see covered in my blog please feel free to message me. Most articles are as a result of a clients discoveries (confidentially created obviously) or messages where someone has said “What are you thoughts on this?” I’m happy to help. Happy to chat and happy to hear from you.

Let’s connect on social media….so I can sell at you….only kidding!

5 signs that your marketing sucks

Sorry to be a bit blunt however recently I’ve been inundated with private messages saying things like “Hi Mandie can you just share this please.” Or “Love your work Mandie, can you just tell everyone about what I do please?” Add that to the pile of emails asking me to submit someone else’s work to an international publication with my name on it (clearly, I won’t do that because it goes against my ethos, honesty, credibility and reputation) and you’ve a bucket loads of request every day of every week that basically want to jump on my marketing bandwagon and expect me to market their organisations for them.

So that’s good, right?

It does mean that my message is getting out there, and when you’ve sold your courses to Brazil and gained clients in the US as well as receiving “thanks for the book” messages from South Africa clearly my marketing is working, so what can I do to help you (fast) so you can get similar results without treating my business like a charity?

Lose the lies (half-truths!)

You know the posts that say they made 2 million in the time it takes to make a cuppa, or someone lost 10 inches in 7 minutes or cured cancer with carrot juice? Okay so I may be over exaggerating on the claim here, but the fact is that some people’s claims are so far fetched we sweep past them faster than the lost property bin that we had to wear if we’d forgotten our gym kit at school. Just as we don’t believe that we all have to buy our sofas in October to get them for Christmas or that we all have to go on a diet in January because Christmas is over, we don’t believe the big stories that people share. So, if they are true, you need to post more than one post claiming those results. You need to build a story around them, share real-life people talking about them, not just an image of your product with your handwriting over the top saying “wow!” If you want us to believe you, create the proof. Remember the Meme of Abraham Lincoln saying, “It must be true I read it on Facebook”? Well, this is a good indication that we’ve become incredibly cynical to what we read, so put in the effort and give us the science, facts and statistics.

Get useful

I rarely talk about my coaching and yet don’t suffer from a lack of business. Why? Because everything I write or say online is aimed at being useful, relevant and interesting. And I don’t deviate from the subjects I want to get known for. Even if you have 200 products decide the key ones that you want to be known for. Imagine you walk into a room of strangers and someone turns and says, “That’s X, they can help with X” what would that X stand for? For instance, everything I do is about helping people increase sales, confidence and success without spending a sack of cash. If it doesn’t fit my ethos and values around that then I don’t say it or write about it.

Stop selling at me

Ever been walking around a beautiful city and someone has practically jumped in your airspace to wave a clipboard at you? Did you enjoy that experience? Did you aim to not make eye contact and move in any direction other than the way you were going? That is what selling at people does. No one likes it and doesn’t’ matter how good a salesman you are if we feel like it’s a sales pitch we’ve out. So why do you keep selling? I don’t care if you’ve got 10% discount, are just putting in an order or have a magical competition to give away. The fact is you don’t qualify to talk business, products or services until you’ve got to know me. And that takes respect, not selling at people. Start holding genuine conversations and drop the sales talk.

Don’t jump on my bandwagon.

Increasingly I see a great piece of advice or story and someone else uses that opportunity to promote their own products and services. Would a Ford dealership park it’s cars on Ferrari’s forecourt and say “Hey it’s alright if we park these here right, for those that can’t afford the shiny red ones, they could have ours instead?” Of course not, and yet online there seems to be no respect for others Intellectual property. On one of my posts where I was sharing some awesome news about where the rights to my book had been sold and how you should never give up on your big dreams, someone actually added how they could help people achieve their goals and overcome a lack of confidence! The irony is that for those that bother to get to know me, like me and trust me, I go out of my way to connect you and help you grow your success, how likely is that to happen when you sell on my own posts!

Get consistent.

Once you know what you want to be known for, you need to ensure you get known for it. Obvious, right? And yet I see people share so many different messages their message becomes so diluted that it’s hard to remember what they do. I can appreciate it is scary to stick to a core message, however, when you are known and loved for that, people will naturally gravitate to signing up to your newsletter, Facebook page, etc and will start to learn about everything else as a result. Thus, consistency is key. Give people the opportunity to fall in love with you and your business. Dump the falsehoods, don’t jump on other people’s marketing bandwagons, stop selling at people and get useful. And if you do this consistently before you know it you will look behind you and discover you’ve a following. You may call it a tribe, or a niche, or a family, whatever you call it they are people ready to learn more and buy, and you didn’t have to sell at them once!

7 ways to get in the press for free

It’s been said that I make it look easy to get in the press, and while that may be true it really doesn’t in my viewpoint take rocket science for you to achieve that too. Admittedly this year I’ve worked closely with Voom Media run by Vanessa Moon, but that is purely because I’ve wanted to concentrate on other areas of my work and not as much on PR. So here are my 7 top tips to getting in the press for free.
(Just remember it will cost you your time, so make your time count, don’t get distracted by social media, get on with it, and get it out there!) And if you think you can dip in and out of this, think again. As with any area of your marketing strategy you need to be consistent with this. My marketing production line really is the basis of this, but this should get you started;


  1. Write a press release about something that is happening in the national news from a local viewpoint. If you’ve never done a press release before here are a few pointers;
  • Don’t try and sell anything.
  • Speak third party, ie; International author and speaker Mandie Holgate added “….. (Unless you are being asked to share your personal viewpoint in a column for instance.)
  • Finish with END and then add a short bio (usually only a couple of lines) explaining why you are the expert and why its relevant. (Still not salesly!) Add contact details and website if relevant to do so.
  • It must have a killer headline. Something that the reader (and editor will instantly want to read). (Don’t know what words to include? You probably need to spend all of £24 and do my Marketing Production Line course to understand power words)
  • Pictures really do paint a thousand words. So, add a great image that tells your story.
  • Don’t try and cover too many topics in one article.
  • Know who you are writing for. And no that’s not you, that’s the publication. They are not a charity they want to increase sales. So, their publication needs to be interesting, useful and relevant to their target audience. Make their life easier and provide that kind of content.
  1. Get yourself known as a thought leader in your industry by writing blog articles that you share in multiple ways. Social media is used by journalists to find experts to speak about all sorts of subjects so what do you want to be known for? Get blogging, vlogging and sharing your views on that subject, and make sure you do this regularly.
  2. Listen to local radio and buy the local papers that you wish to feature in. If they are covering a subject and you can give them the local view on this, phone them! This way you also understand their style of communication and how you will need to adapt to fit into this.
  3. If and when you get on the radio or to speak to a journalist remember nothing is off the record and if you sell at them, you won’t get a second chance.
  4. Share your big news. And if its salesy, don’t do it! Partner up with a local charity and help them raise their profile. Host an event for a local charity and get in touch with the press to tell them more. First year in business? First member of staff? Awarded a grant? New premises? Sold your first product to the US/or outside of the UK? Won an award? Read the publication in question to understand what they consider newsworthy.
  5. Have a strong view on a subject? Be prepared to back it up and to have some people not like your views and speak out!
  6. Check out the hashtag #Journorequests. And if you are thinking of writing a press release, and dumping it on your website and adding the #journorequest to a link to your article on social media, then think again. Seriously respect how busy and how many tight deadlines journalists have. And don’t ask for my journalist friends contact details. I too respect their busy schedules far too much to let them be spammed by people who just don’t get how to use PR in their business.

How to make sales come to you!

I’m often asked how I manage to look like I’m everywhere and gain new clients when I seem to have a lot of time to do the things I want to do, as well as look after my health. Well, I wouldn’t ask you do to something that I’m not prepared to do myself!

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…)
