Another new year is upon us (and we’re already almost mid-ways through January no-less).
Did you commit to trying something different (better) this year? Are you serious about creating different results in your business and life? Have you figured out that the most brilliant, successful people are, in fact, human, realize they’re human (at least most of the time) and get help?
Or are you still making any of these mistakes?
-Not including a call-to-action in MOST, if not all your marketing
-Not making follow up a non-negotiable priority
-Treating your business like a hobby
-Mass targeting, i.e. trying to serve everybody, or way too many people
-Don’t have a written, strategic marketing plan
-Not marketing enough
-Not being visible enough, online or off
-Focusing on your brandING before your brand
-Not leveraging social media to grow your brand or business
-Unclear and/or boring messaging
-Getting caught up in busy work vs. focusing on revenue-generating, client-attracting work
If you’re making just one of these mistakes, we should certainly connect. If you’re making two or more, we need to talk like yesterday. Schedible a COMPLIMENTARY Brand. Sell. Profit.™ session at www.bit.ly/schedulesessionnow
Success does leave clues. It’s ok to need help. It’s absolutely brilliant to get help. #Coaches need coaching. #Consultants need consulting. Experts need…expert-ing.
If Oprah, Mark Zuckerberg, Warren Buffet, Tony Robbins, and…oh yeah…the President of the United States need advisors, I think the rest of us could surely use some help.
Over the last three years, I’ve invested thousands of dollars in coaching, courses, and other professional development. That does not include what I’ve invested in my business directly, like website, marketing, and hiring help.
You can keep making the same mistakes, trying to figure it out on your own, and wasting time and increasing the money you’ll have to invest in the future because things will be worse than they are now.
Or you can operate like a real CEO/boss, cut your learning curve, fast-track your success, and get the help you need. You can also think beyond yourself, your business, or brand and consider your target audience who is needs what you have to offer.
No matter how next-level or effective your product or service is, it won’t make much difference if few people know about it. Or it’s not resonating with the right people.
Don’t overthink this. Unless you want to be making the same mistakes mentioned above and/or in the same place this time next year – or even by the summer of this year. Grab one of those limited complimentary sessions at www.bit.ly/schedulesessionnow
