How To Boost Your Business By Developing Intuition

developing Intuition

By developing intuition I gave myself a sometimes scary but awe-inspiring upper hand in life.

 

When I first started to make the effort to develop my intuition I had no idea the wonderful and amazing surprises that were in store for me. I started to feel like I had an unfair advantage in life that other people didn’t have.

 

Then I realized that other people have it too they just don’t know how to use it.

 

Sit tight and get ready to walk into an existence where your intuition is your greatest alley…

 

I am going to take you on a journey here that opens up a world of possibilities you probably never knew existed.

Developing Intuition  How To Uncover It

 

Did you know we all have the ability to sense when something isn’t right?   Not just some time but all the time!

 

We all have what is called gut instinct, when your gut is telling you something that is your intuition.

 

We all have a built-in intuitive system.   If we pay attention to it tells us what decisions to make.  Who really has our best interests at heart and if another person is being honest with us.

 

I now use my intuition for everything I do in life. It is like having an angel on my shoulder that has my best interests at heart.

 

I started using this ability for my business and right away I saw my profits soar.  I was shocked at first, then I quickly realized of course this works for your business.  It works for everything!

 

 

Developing Intuition Where To Start

 

 

Imagine for a moment… you have your own Angel on your shoulder that has your best interests at heart.

 

Who wouldn’t want that?  It is one of life’s gifts to us that we don’t all take advantage of.

 

In developing intuition you first want to start with bringing your attention to how it feels in your body.  

 

Some people feel it in their stomach others may feel it in their throat or head. Start paying attention to your body.   Listen to what it is telling you when you meet someone or have to make an important decision in life.

 

For instance, you meet someone for the first time, at a business meeting.  Within the first minute or so you have made a judgment about the person. 

 

The way they are dressed how they speak and carry themselves. This is the first impression, and it is mainly visual.

After the visual impression you have a feeling about the person. That feeling is your intuition.

 

When we are on the Internet the same thing happens when we see their profile picture.  That’s why the picture you have on your social media accounts is so important.  That’s your first impression.

 

You may notice that as you are listening to them talk about themselves or their business your body has a reaction to their energy vibration.   At that time you will either like them or not.

 

I am sure you can remember meeting someone and saying, I don’t know why but I just don’t like that person.

 

Or something doesn’t feel right to me about the situation, business deal or the person in general.

 

Those feelings are your intuition, and when you look back you’ll notice that feeling was right wasn’t it?

 

Developing Intuition Testing It Out

 

If this is new to you the next time you meet someone pay attention to your body and the feelings you have about the other person. You will realize for yourself what I am talking about.

 

The energy that is coming from that person does not lie and you have the natural ability to detect it.

 

A person can tell you anything.   Their true intentions will come through in the energy vibes they are giving off.

 

That is why it is important to pay attention, when you hear that little voice saying to you, “Something isn’t right here.”

 

A lot of people will recognize that something isn’t quite right but then they will ignore those feelings.

 

Developing Intuition Paying Attention

 

 

This is the important part of developing intuition.  Paying attention to your gut feeling.

 

How many times did you know something and didn’t pay attention to it?  Later said, I should have listened to my gut feeling.

 

Too Many!  Me too .. I got so sick of saying that I decided to start paying attention and tuning in to my intuitive abilities.

Developing Intuition Knowing The Difference

 

You can do this by reminding yourself you are going to pay attention today to your natural instincts. 

 

The more aware you are the more your will awaken your intuition.   Remember your intuition is what you are feeling not what you are thinking.

 

If you understand the difference between those two things you are 90% to developing intuition!

 

 

Developing Intuition How To Use It To Increase Your Business

 

 

If you have a question about what to charge or what is the next step in your business…

 

Simply think about your question before you go to sleep.  Your subconscious will work on your problem and when you wake up you will be filled with ideas.

 

Or if it is one simple question you will instantly have your answer.

 

It’s like having your own genie in a bottle.  Try this tonight and you will see what I mean.

 

Developing Intuition Takes Practice

 

 

You can practice developing intuition.  This will get to a point where you have significantly enhanced your life and business in every way.

 

You want to practice and exercise your intuition just like any other muscle.

 

  1. Start to think about a loved one or someone special to you. Take some time to really picture them in your mind.

 

Do this for a few days in a row.  Don’t be surprised if they call you.  You may even run into them.  Don’t be surprised if they say,  I have been thinking about you lately I was going to call you.

 

  1. Practice with things in your everyday life. If your lose something you can use energy scanning.  Close your eyes and let your energy expand all around you.

 

See it fill your entire home.  Then see if an image or feeling about where the lost item is comes to you.  You may get a vision of the general area.  Go there and look for your lost item.

 

You’re going to be surprised how well this works. And it doesn’t take long to really hone this skill.

Developing Intuition Training Your Mind

 

Training your mind is like anything if you do it enough it will pay off big time.

 

John Holland a successful well-known psychic suggests, use a deck of cards.  Place four cards down in front of you.

 

Move your hands over the cards slowly.  Now see if you can feel which ones are black and which ones are red.

 

You may get a warm sensation for red and a cold sensation for black. Go with your first impression you get from each card.

 

The more you do these types of things the better you will get at using and developing intuition.

 

Another way I practice is with elevators. When I am waiting for an elevator I try to get a feeling which one will open first.

 

98% of the time I am right.  When I’m not I know that I have too many other thoughts in my head.  This blocks my intuition from functioning at 100%.

 

This is beneficial because at that point I can choose to tune into my body.  That opens my intuition and allow it in.

 

 

Developing Intuition Using Meditation To Take It To The Next Level

 

Meditation also helps with developing intuition because it clears your mind and helps you to focus.   Which in turn allows the intuitive part of your brain the clarity it needs to sense what is really going on in.

 

You rise above thinking when you do  meditation.

 

This is really important in growing your business.  You want to make strong, solid business decisions.   If you use the meditation along with your intuition you will be able to make big money moves. 

 

You will be clear and not coming from a place of lack or fear.  Instead you will come from a centered calm place.  That will allow you to take risks that grow your business.

 

  Developing Intuition What We Think About We Bring About

 

You know that saying, “What we think about we bring about.” How true is that!

 

When you start to put your energy toward developing intuition…  You will be amazed at how your psychic awareness starts to grow.

 

Allowing you to have a system in place where you move through life easily and effortlessly.   We all have this gift it’s about taking the time to perfect it and grow it.

 

Don’t wait until you have a problem get started today developing your intuition.  This way when you really need it, you’ll be ready.

 

Let’s take this one step further…I have been helping people reach six and seven-figure incomes for over twenty years.

 

Let’s continue this conversation about developing intuition and talk about how I can further assist you.

Website Marketing Tip – One Color is Everything

 

Make sure your website is representing you. The look and feel of the web site should show people right away who you are and what you have to offer.

 

You have to choose the right colors that not only represent you but draw in your visitors.

 

I’m going to share with you the golden ticket to website marketing success.

 

 

Website Marketing Color Chart

Red:

  • Confident
  • Passion
  • Stop
  • Energy
  • Strength

 

Red is probably not the best color for your website.  Although you can effectively use it on your buttons that say buy now or sign up.

 

It is much more of a stop and do something color than a main website color. Unless of course you are a race car driver.

 

Orange:

  • Warm
  • Compassionate
  • Happiness
  • Success
  • Creativity
  • Enthusiasm
  • Fall

 

 

Orange on the other had is good choice for a website. It works well for life coaches, women’s sites, yoga anything that makes you feel warm and fuzzy.

 

Yellow:

 

  • Joy
  • Sunshine
  • Summer
  • Cheerfulness
  • Sensual
  • Intellect
  • youthful

 

Yellow is great for young fresh websites.  It creates a feeling of fun energy and it defiantly stands out. If your website is a travel site that caters to tropical locations this would be the way to go.

 

Green:

  • Rich
  • Money
  • Outdoors
  • Nature
  • Healing
  • Security
  • Clean

 

Green is a great choice if you have a nature site or gardening anything outdoorsy.

 

Blue:

 

  • Air
  • Sky
  • Trust
  • Stability
  • Calm
  • Masculine
  • Tranquil

 

 

Blue is the top color used for most websites.  It represents trust and stability.  That is what most people want to convey to their visitors.

 

This way they buy more because they feel comfortable and safe. If you’re confused on what color to use, blue is the best bet.

 

Purple:

 

  • Royal
  • Nobel
  • Powerful
  • Wealthy
  • Ambitious
  • Spiritual
  • Luxury
  • Dignity

 

Purple is the color of my website.  Purple does tend to be a more feminine color.  It stands for luxury beauty and has a wise spiritual meaning which is what drew me to this color.

 

Pink:

  • Feminine
  • Youth
  • Innocence
  • Flirty
  • Romance
  • Gentleness

 

Pink is most definitely for a girl and a young one at that.  I wouldn’t use it if you want to be taken seriously as a business professional.

 

It is more of a fun bubbly type of feel.  If you sell candy or have a teen clothing site then pink is your color.

 

Black:

 

  • Power
  • Dominance
  • Sophistication
  • Polished
  • Luxury
  • Knowledge
  • Slick

 

This is for modern sites that are hip cool and fast.  If you want to show you’re a affordable site this wouldn’t be the best option. If your selling fast sporty cars or expensive jewelry this would be the way to go.

 

Brown:

 

  • Masculine
  • Serious
  • Rugged
  • Outdoorsy
  • Sturdy

 

Brown isn’t used very often because it tends to look a bit muddy.  Unless you have a outdoorsy type of site I wouldn’t go this way.

 

Take this very seriously your website is representing you!  This part of your business is more important than your office, your business card and your brochure all put together.

Website Marketing Tip Two – Your Layout

 

Make sure the layout of your site is easy to follow.

 

You want people to be able to easily find your blog and other important pages.  The about us page for example would be under the category of important.

 

Your products or services what you’re selling need to stand out.  

 

One thing you don’t want on your pages is long paragraphs that go on and on. Everything needs to be spaced out and separated.

 

Most people are going to glance through your website to find what they are looking for. If it isn’t laid out for easy scanning your website will be skipped altogether.

 

Make sure you separate each thought.  One way to do this is with bullet points and use sub headings to break up the text.

 

All of this makes it easy to read.  A website that looks lengthy will bomb!

 

Website Marketing Tip Three – Do Something Interactive That Creates Engagement

 

Be creative. Offer something outside of the box. You want people to visit your website and think oh I have to come back here.

 

You want to add value to your visitors so they come back.  Also you want them to tell their friends about your site as well.

 

One thing I did was created a quiz.  I designed it myself on how to find your life purpose.   This was great because no one else has it since I created it.

 

You can do this yourself for free by going to typeform.com.

 

 

Website Marketing Tip Four- Keep Them Coming Back

 

Keep them coming back for more.  Experiment with what works and what doesn’t.

 

If you are always adding new and interesting things people will keep coming back. I offer different things every couple of months.

 

Keep it fresh so they come back to see what you’re giving away every month.  It can be Success Tips, Mp3 mini class, a short how to E-book or marketing work sheet that you put on a PDF.

 

Listen for what people need and create that in a freebie and you’ll be surprized how fast you collect email addresses.

 

Whatever you come up with it should have your picture or logo and tag line.  This way they remember you every time they use it.

 

 

Website Marketing Tip  Five – Have A Call To Action 

 

Make sure each page ends with asking your client to do something.  That is a call to action.  What’s important to me is getting new clients.  I make my call to action a twenty-minute free marketing consultation. 

 

You can have them sign up for your newletter if that’s your main objective.  Have them join your latest webinar.  Whatever it is put it at the end.  You want to use your blog post as a way of building trust.

 

Your article shows you have the experience and knowlege of someone they would want to work with or buy from.  If you add the call to action right away most likly they won’t take it.

 

Another important tip only have one call to action.  The biggest mistake I see people make is asking them to do one thing and right under it another thing.

 

In this case more is not better. People get confused and end up doing nothing.

 

Another key to success is keep it conversational so it doesn’t sound like a pitch more like a wonderful invitation.

Website Marketing Tip Six- Get Their Information

 

You want to capture their email.   This way when you offer a class or new product you can tell them about it.  The best way to do this is through a newsletter that you don’t call a newsletter. 

 

That sounds boring and won’t get you many opt-ins.  I call mine success tips and offer them information they won’t find on my website.  I also offer free class’s and lots of goodies.

 

That is much more appealing and your odds of an opt-in go up substantially.

 

It’s a good idea if you offer something free just for signing up.  This can be anything that would be of value to your target audience.   I offer a free tele-class on getting more clients through social media.

 

It’s short to the point and extremely valuable.

 

You can give away a mini e-book or even a chart that you put on a PDF. Just make sure you keep your newsletter short and to the point.   Also include in each one that value you promised them or they won’t stick around long.

 

Website Marketing Tip Seven-  About Me/Us Page

 

Always have an about me or about us page.  This is where people get to know you and like you.  It’s important that you build trust on this page.

 

Let them know exactly what you do that no one else does.  Why your qualified and what experience awards or schooling you have that proves that.

 

You can and should blow your own horn on this page. Even more importantly add some testimonials let your clients blow your horn for you. 

 

These are gold and besides your testimonial and product/service pages this is the best place for them.

How to Promote your Business – Generate a Free Report 

 

  1. Generate a Report That Gives Statistics in Your Industry in Any Area That is of a High Interest.

 

People love statistics and if they can learn something that helps their business on top of it, you will have a huge hit.

 

It will also help solidify you as an expert, which means a significant difference in respect and your fee’s.

 

Put this report out on all your social networks.

  • Include it in your newsletter
  • Turn into an info-graphic and post it on Pinterest

 

Do what you can to make sure it gets the exposure it needs.

 

Do this regularly and it will generate a lot of traffic and back-links it’s a great way to promote your business.

 

How to Promote your Business – Implement a Ask You Page

 

 

  1. Dedicate a Page on Your Site Where People Can Ask You “How to Questions.”

 

Put them in your newsletters to get additional coverage. You can tweet some of the questions and ask others to help you answer.

 

You put out the question with a link for the answer. It will bring people into your website where they can get to know you and opt into your newsletter as well.

 

This is a great way to show your expertise and build credibility.  You can get ideas for new blog posts while you’re at it.

 

 I did this for years and it proved very successful.   So successful I couldn’t answer all the questions anymore so I had to let it go.

 

 

How to Promote your Business – Host A Podcast/ Radio Show 

 

 

  1. Host Your Own Radio or Online TV Show Where The Topics Are in Your Niche.

 

 

This opens the door for your target market/niche to walk through and experience your personality, knowledge, and expertise.

 

I had a blogtalk radio show I hosted along with two other women.   It pulled in over 5000 thousand people every show.  Eventually we built it to over fifteen thousand listeners.

 

That does take promoting as well, it doesn’t come with 5000 listeners every show.

 

Once you build up an audience it’s a great way to promote your business.  You can get the word out about any classes or books you have coming out.

 

 

It gives you a great opportunity to meet other professionals in your niche as well. I loved putting the show on every week, we had a great time and that is the most important part.

 

 

How to Promote your Business – What Will Make You Stand Out?

 

  1. When You Post on Your Social Media Accounts Make Sure to Engage With Your Followers.

 

Think about the posts that will get people talking before you post it.  Ask a question when you post.  There are a number of ways to get the conversation going.

 

The most important part is to respond back in a way that leads to another response.  This way you truly develop a relationship with the person and that leads to trust and trust leads to sales.

 

Never just post to post.  Always have a plan in mind and an intended result.  You will soon find out through trail and error which posts get people talking and which don’t.

 

My experience has been that if you post a solution that your target audience resonates with that not only delivers it gets people talking.

 

If you don’t know what they need perfect.   Ask what they need or what’s missing in their business. That’s another good way to start the conversation. 

 

Mix it up also, add cute fun pictures of you and your family.  Be original try not to do what everyone else is doing.  Find images that make people stop in their tracks and want to comment.

 

Inspirational posts are great as well.  Just keep it original try to find something that isn’t stale.  

 

 

 

 

How to Promote your Business – Start a Super Fun Contest

  1. Start a Contest On One Of Your Social Media Accounts.

 

This will attract people to your website along with giving them the opportunity to see what you offer.  Make sure the contest is something appealing.

 

I have done a number of contests.   One of them I did on Facebook a couple of years back.   I asked some of my colleagues and clients to participate with me.

 

This allowed more to give away.  Each one of us gave away something from our websites.

 

In some cases it was a book or product.   In others it was a free coaching or consulting session.  People signed up and everyday I held a drawing.  Three people each day would win a free product or coaching session.

 

Myself and the other experts made a big deal posting and tweeting about the winners everyday.  We had a blast doing it.

 

I ran the contest for two weeks.  I had all the participates help promote it on their social media accounts and in their newsletters as well.

 

All the leads came to me since it was my contest and I did all the heavy lifting.

 

Although everyone participating was on the promotion page.  They added their website and picture which gave them tons of exposure.   It was of course a win-win for everyone.

 

I would do different things like this every couple of months.   I ended up with thousands of qualified leads for my newsletter not to mention lots of new clients.    This also helped position me as an industry leader.

 

 

How to Promote your Business – Facilitate a Tweetchat 

 

 

  1. Facilitate a Tweetchat Every Week on Twitter.

 

I hosted my own Tweetchat for two years, called “Lifechanger”.    We talked about different subjects facing small business owners every day. This is a great way to promote your business.

 

I had three other experts who helped me host it and answer questions.   Really anyone participating could ask or answer a question.

 

This created lots of exposure for me and the people who participated.

 

It allowed people to get an idea of our expertise and in many cases brought in new clients and many followers.  Today I have over 100,000.00 followers on Twitter.

 

I know that things like hosting a Tweetchat really helped to boost my website traffic and followers as well. 

 

 

How to Promote your Business – Guest on Other Experts Promotions, Radio Shows

  1. Participate in Other Experts Social Media Promotions and Tele-classes webinars or Radio Shows.

 

 

When someone asks you if you want to be on their radio show, webinar or do an interview, if your schedule allows say “YES”.

 

This gives you multiple ways to get exposure and build your email list and get new clients. 

 

Make sure you ask first who the speakers are.   You want to be in good company as well as knowing that this promotion will pull in loads of people.  Again time is money and you don’t want to waste yours.

 

(If no one is asking you, then create your own and you ask them to participate in your speaker webinar.)  After that people will know you!

 

How to Promote your Business –  Offer A Freebie People Want to Share 

 

  1. Offer a Give-Away on Your Website.

 

This is a great way to promote your business and get more website traffic.

 

Also more opt-ins and clients.  For years I had a number of giveaways that pulled in thousands of visitors every month.     Just from the search engines alone.

 

People love anything free!   If you use the right key words it’s a bit easier to get on the first page of Google for free stuff.

 

I offered ten meditation and relaxation Mp3’s to promote my business.   Another giveaway I offer now  is my mini class ” My Top 5 Secrets on How to Get Business With Social Media and Become an influencer.”  Click on the link and it will be in your in box with-in seconds. 

 

I used the latter to offer as an incentive to opt in to my success tips.

 

I have to say you don’t have to go as far as I did.  That was a lot of work.  It took some expertise on the recording side to get the quality just right.

 

You can simply give away a chart or graph.   Something that will help your target audience build their business. 

 

Do a bit of research here and find out one of their biggest problems.

 

Solve it for them in a giveaway and BOOM!  You will have a winner.

I used Twitter which can help promote your business, by tweeting them.   

 

This created buzz around my marketing idea right away.

 

The Title:  “81 Extraordinary Ways To Get Motivated By 81 Top Motivational Experts.”

 

I had 81 people participate and they each gave me a quote or their advice.   In exchange for adding a link back to their website I asked them to tweet the article.

(You can also do a dream board on your computer and search for pictures or create a board on Pinterest and name it your dream board.)

 

I did my first one the old school way and created a huge board I kept in my office. I loved it because it was right in front of me everyday.  I couldn’t miss it.

 

*Go crazy here, really go out on a limb. If you want to live on the ocean in a beautiful house, find a picture of a house on the ocean that resembles what you want.

 

Look for pictures that really light you up inside when you look at them.
If you want to grow your business find pictures of people achieving great things in the work place or find an image of  Forbes Fortune 500 and use that.

 

If you want to travel cut out pictures of the places you want to go. Find pictures of someone doing the things you want to, sailing or skiing, climbing a mountain or hiking.

 

You can cut out words or sentences as well.

 

Anything you cut out is great as long as it inspires and motivates you. If you want to get married, cut out a bride and groom or a wedding picture.

If you want to write a book, look for pictures of a someone typing on thier computer. If you can’t find the pictures you are looking for in a magazine you can do an image search and find the picture on-line and then print it out.

Dream Board / Vision Board Third Step 

Get a picture of yourself you really like, where you are happy and feel good. You are going to paste this in the middle of the board.

 

Dream Board / Vision Board Fourth Step

 

Before you begin pasting all your pictures and words take a felt pen or glitter and outline the poster board in yellow.

 

This means you are surrounding your Dream Board with the light it needs to manifest your vision.

 

Dream Board / Vision Board Fifth Step

 

On the bottom of the board write in black, with a felt pen… This or something better now manifests for me in divine and appropriate timing.

 

Dream Board / Vision Board Sixth Step

 

You are now ready to start to create your dream board by pasting your vision (pictures) on the board.

Requirements:

Have fun!!! This is really important. You are now taking an important step towards seeing and feeling the life you want.

 

Really go for it here…this is your chance to have it all!!! Now that you have completed the board there are a few action steps for you to take.

 

Dream Board / Vision Board Action Steps

 

Put this board somewhere you will see it every day.  If it’s on your computer you may want to use it as your computr background so you see it everyday when you log on.

 

Spend a couple of minutes every morning and every night before bed looking at your dream board.

 

Really feel the emotions in the pictures you have chosen.  Look at the colors that are on your board. The different places or events that make you smile. These types of things can truly make a difference. 

 

Now… expect these wonderful things or something better to happen in the appropriate time. 

 

My Dream Board /Vision Board:

 

Dream Board, Vision Board, Dawn Abraham
Dawn Abraham’s Dream Board / Vision Board

 

 

I had so much fun designing my dream board. I look at it now and so many of the things I put on this board have either come true or something even better has happened.

 

The magic from my board is still generating and manifesting itself today.

 

You see I didn’t fool around with my dream board. I went to town!! It is full of all the wonderful places I intend on traveling and the people I want to meet and share my life with.

 

I have yoga poses I want to achieve. I am meditating on the beach overlooking the ocean at sunrise.

 

I did that in Florida when studying with Deepak Chopra, it was incredible.

 

I added inspiring affirmations I cut out of magazines that say:

 

Affirmations

 

“I Am RENEWED”

“I AM RELAXED”

“I AM CONFIDENT”

“I AM UNSTOPPABLE”

“I AM FOCUSED”

“I AM SELF AWARE”

“I AM CALM”

“I AM ENRICHED”

“I AM PLAYFUL”

 

The sky is the limit. Therefore anything you find that inspires you put that on your dream board.

 

I have to say that when I first made this board I thought that everything would happen right away.

 

Some of the things actually did happen within a short amount of time while others still had to grow for me.

 

I look back and now realize that if every one of those things happened right away I wouldn’t have had time to appreciate and fully experience them all.

 

Life is the journey and the journey is life….ENJOY IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How To Write A Simple Small Business Marketing Plan That Turns Your Business Into Profits

small business marketing plan

One of the first things you will want to do when starting your small business marketing plan is to get a clear vision of what you want to manifest.

 

It is really important that you know where you are going and what the purpose is before you start your business. 

 

So Let’s get this party started… here are the steps to success...you don’t want to miss any of them.  

 

I am literally giving you the key to your success, make sure you take it. 

 

Small Business Marketing Plan Part One

 

1. Start with your mission statement, what is your passion and motivation for this company?

 

This is the reason you are starting the company. Why would someone need your services or products? In writing this you will come up with your mission statement.

 

Which is something you will live by to motivate not only yourself but anyone else working for you or with you.

 

An example would be; My mission statement is:

 

To help 20 million entrepreneurs and professionals worldwide achieve success and higher awareness so they can reach their full potential by earning more money and working less.

 

In this mission statement I have targeted how many people I see myself and my company serving where they are located who they are and what I can bring to the table, the benefit!

 

You may want to write a page or two of what your vision is. Really let go here and write with no limits.  Have fun and see what you come up with. 

 

Small Business Marketing Plan Part Two

 

2. What are you selling?

 

What is your service or product? Describe here what you have to offer.

 

3. How are you going to sell or provide your service or products?

 

List all the many ways you will be able to do this. If you are going to sell products are they your products that you will produce or actually ship out?

 

Or are you going to sell someone else’s products and you are the middle man?

 

There are many options here that you can look into. The cost of shipping and the time it will take you to pack and or produce the product.  

 

Verses you have the web site and through affiliates you sell products and they do all the work while you get a percentage.

 

This percentage can be up to 50% in a lot of cases. There are many of these opportunities all through the Internet. You can do a search to find them.  

 

I made 30% of my income just from selling affiliate products on one of my other websites. It is a great option. 

 

Small Business Marketing Plan Part Three

 

4. What are all the different types of services or products you could offer?

 

a. Is it a service that you can put on a MP3, CD or DVD?
b. Write a “How to book”, or e-book?
c. Are there complimentary products that can be sold with the service; extras that enhance it?
d. What types of workshops or classes can you make available?
Think big here, there are many different approaches you can use to expand your sales.

 

5. What are the benefits of your service?

 

If you understand the value you offer it will make it easier to market. What sets you apart from your competition?

 

Make sure you know what you do better than anyone else. What you offer people are your benefits.  What will they walk away with?  This is really what sells people not your features, people buy BENEFITS!

 

Make sure you can deliver on any promises you make.  And make sure you find that ONEspecial thing ONLY you do that sets you apart.

Small Business Marketing Plan Part Four

 

 

6. What different avenues can you take in marketing your small business?

• Internet
• Magazines
• Word of mouth
• Radio advertising or giving radio interviews
• Television
• E-mail – your newsletter is one way to build up your contacts
• Direct mail
• Networking Groups
• Presentations offers of free tele-classes or in person workshops
• Give a ways
• Blogs
• Writing and submitting articles on the internet and in local papers

 

 

Small Business Marketing Plan Part Five

 

7. Who are your ideal clients?

 

Do some research here to find out what type of people would be interested in your service or product this way you know where to advertise.

 

What types of magazines do they read? What type of web sites would they be a part of?

 

Where are these people? Where would you find them?

 

Once you know that you can go to those places and talk with the owners of the store or website.  Offer to work together doing a free workshop or seminar.

 

You gain the new connections/clients.   They get happy clients who now have your knowledge for free.  The business owner is giving his clients a special benefit of your expertise and knowledge they wouldn’t otherwise get.  You can split the profits 50/50.

 

It is a win/win situation for both of you.

 

You win because you can now bring your products or service  to new prospects and the owner of that web site or store wins because they make money from your products and service.

 

It’s this type of out of the box thinking that will spring you forward and start to grow your small business faster than most.

 

Small Business Marketing Plan Part Six

 

8. What do you want your small business to look like in one year?

 

This would be what you plan on achieving in your first year. By the end of that year what will your business look like?

 

This would include your financial goals as well. Write a detailed page of where you see your business by this time next year.

 

  • How much income is it producing?
  • How many clients do have?
  • Who are your clients?
  • What are the different areas you are specializing in?
  • How many targeted social media followers do have?
  • How many employees do have?
  • How many new products or services are you offering

 

Get as detailed as you can.  The more you flesh out your business vision the more likely it will come true.

 

9. What do you want your business to look like in five years?

 

Really think big here. The sky’s the limit. This may change but have a vision so you know what path to take in building it.

 

Include your financial goals.   Use the list above in writing this out.

 

To Recap Your Small Business Marketing Plan: 

 

  • You need a vision
  • Find out what your greatest benefit is
  • Put that information in a tagline
  • Know who your target market is
  • Find out where they are
  • Go to them to market.

4 Easy Steps To Setting Yourself Apart With Niche Marketing Strategies

Niche Marketing Strategies

Niche marketing strategies is not just a fancy word.   It equals more dollars for you and a business that equals laser focus and that = success! 

 

I show you how to stand out from the crowd and skyrocket your business with my niche marketing strategies. 

 

For some strange reason people are afraid of Niche Marketing.  They want to know what is Niche Marketing? 

 

One of the main concerns I hear from clients is “I don’t want to leave anyone out.  ” Or “How do I know what my niche is?”

 

I bet you’ve asked yourself this same question…am I right? 

 

This type of thinking tends to stop people from actually using Niche marketing strategies .

 

The problem with that is lack of focus on a particular area.  You don’t want to be all over the place. Instead be in the right place=where your clients are.

 

Niche Marketing Strategies …Creating your Niche of Expertise

When looking at your business or practice in order to set yourself apart you want to have a specialty. This is where you shine the brightest. How to get to that point would start with an area you know and love.

 

For example:  If you are a life coach and your speciality is weight loss and health instead of marketing yourself as a life coach,  your niche would be fitness and your focus health.

 

You can even go as far as to call yourself a “Fitness Coach”, “Health Coach” or “Weight Loss Coach.”

 

Your target can be anyone that is interested in health nutrition and weight loss. The important thing is you always want to have a target audience.

 

To narrow down your niche start with what you are passionate about. Write a list of the things you love to do. Then write a list of the things you know how to do.

 

From that list you will see the obvious pop out.

 

If you have two areas that seem neck and neck always go for the one you love the most. If you choose a niche you love then you will prosper.

 

The energy you get from doing something you are connected to is powerful.

 

Niche Marketing Strategies – Creating your Niche Statement

 

Everyone needs a great tag line so people know what your niche actually is. This is also refereed to as  your HUB statement. That is the hottest unique benefit you offer.

 

This should be one sentence that explains what you do.   Once you say it people know right away what to expect from your business or service.

 

For example I am a marketing/business coach. My HUB statement is: partnering with entrepreneurs and professionals to create balanced lives while earning more money.

 

From that statement you know who I work with, what I do and what you get (the benefit). And you know all that in under a minute.

 

That statement can easily fit on your business cards.

 

I also use it on all my advertising, social media. It’s on my signature line in my correspondence e-mails and it is on my website.

 

My niche is small business marketing. I chose that because I have had major success growing and marketing small and large businesses.

 

I have the talent and expertise to grow a new business so fast that it becomes successful in its first year.  It explodes the second year and so on.

 

I have done that for myself and many others in the past. It comes naturally and easily to me.

 

I also love being apart of building something new and watching it grow.

 

It seemed natural that I would then partner with professionals to accomplish the same thing I have accomplished and guide them to that same success.

Niche Marketing  Strategies – What About the Rest of the Business Out There?

 

 

This doesn’t mean that other type of people won’t seek you out. They will and you can then choose to help them or refer them out.

 

This brings up another reason for networking with in your industry.

 

When working with people in your niche be prepared to give referrals.   

 

Benefits of Niche Marketing:

 

  • You have an excellent reputation for only taking clients that truly suit you
  • This builds trust among those clients you do take on
  • Your career will become easy and carefree  
  • You will be working with the type of people who you click with
  • You both will be going in the same direction
  • Your energy together will propel both of you toward greatness  
  • This will bring out the best in your client

 

In creating these types of business relationships you will get referrals by the dozens.

 

You will have more business than you know what to do with.   Stick to doing what you love with the type of people who have the same love.

 

 

Niche Marketing Strategies – Knowing Where to Put Your Advertising Dollars

 

 

If you are networking on the internet and your niche is health then find health websites Look for health themed networking sites you can join.

 

This is where you will find the people who are interested in your business or service.

 

Many of these sites are free and I list quite a few of them in my article Small business marketing tips. Once you are on these sites networking becomes easier if you are niche marketing.

 

You also want to focus on your target market when using social media.  It’s important to seek out the type of people who would be interested in your business and follow them.

 

What you don’t want to do is create a large following of people just to increase the number of followers.

 

That is a waste of time.  In the long run, you will end up frustrated and feeling as if social media is not a great avenue to get clients.   Nothing could be farther from the truth.

 

Another reason you want to have a niche is to gain trust.  In order for you to get business, people have to trust you.

 

It is easier to build trust if you are focusing on a particular area.  Then become an expert in that area.  You don’t need to  cover everything so you’re not really gaining any one area of expertise.

 

Let’s take niche marketing strategies one step further…I have been helping people reach six and seven-figure incomes for over twenty years.
