Is this you?
You have taken the steps to create your dream business. You’ve harnessed all your skills and experiences, and used them to create what you know is your destiny. Now that you have business services and products finalized, you need a marketing and sales.
You need a marketing system that allows your true genius to shine, attracts your ideal clients, and converts them at a rate that allows you to grow your business in a profitable fashion.
It’s not quite that simple.
It can be frustrating when you know you have a good product and know you do great work, yet clients don't show up. You don't just build a better mouse trap, you build the best mouse trap. And despite all your efforts, there is no one beating a path to your door.
Do you recognize yourself in any of these scenarios?
- You are busy with a lot of marketing activity that gets a lot of attention but no clients. Let’s face it, you can kill a lot of time collecting "Likes" and followers and have nothing to show for it. A marketing activity that doesn’t generate business is just activity. We aren’t in business for that.
- You are busy with a lot of marketing activity, but you aren't seeing any response at all. You create your marketing material or launch a campaign and nothing happens. No calls, no customers, no feedback. Nothing. You keep reading stories of people who did they exact same thing you are doing and went from rags to riches, yet you get nothing. Something is wrong.
- You do some marketing here and there. Some of it works. Some does not. You aren't exactly sure why. It’s frustrating because you don’t know where you should invest your time, money, and energy. There are so many marketing opportunities and they all seem to require a lot of you. How can you tell which ones are right for you?
You know there is a better way.
You want to spend your time on marketing that has these qualities:
Strategic - You only spend your time on marketing activities that are core to your business and are bringing you results. This is essential to any successful marketing and sales campaign. Spend your time on high value tactics that reinforce your brand while attracting your ideal clients.
Persuasive - Your messages speak directly to the people you need to reach with the messages that motivate them to act. Once you have the attention of your ideal clients, you need to convince them that your product or service is the answer to their problems.
Effective - You want want a marketing plan that doesn’t stop at getting attention, it moves your prospects systematically through a process that ends in a sale. The problem with most marketing plans is that they are only designed to get attention. They can be successful, and you still are not making any profits. A complete marketing system doesn’t end until your prospects have moved all the way through your sales funnel and are clients.
