Are You Still Waiting To Start Marketing?

Friday, May 29th, 2009
 

I have heard it many times. Many coaches who have been in business for a year or two have told me that even though they are in business, they are not actively marketing it.

When I ask why not, it always seems like they are waiting for something before they can start marketing:

- Waiting to get yet another professional certificate

- Waiting for their web designer to re-design they web site for the tenth time

- Waiting to finish reading a marketing book they purchased

- Waiting to start on the 1st of the month

- Waiting to …

These people have been waiting for over a year to start marketing their businesses. Since they haven’t marketed their business yet, they do not have many clients and they are not able to support themselves with their business revenue.

Waiting for something to happen before you start marketing actually sabotages you and your business. If you are waiting for something to happen before you can start marketing I have a challenge for you — go ahead and get started. No more excuses of not having enough certificates or not having finished your web site re-design. The faster you start marketing your business, the faster you will build a successful business where you have as many clients as you need and where you work at times that are convenient for you.

Here is a plan for you to get started with marketing today:

- Do a comprehensive marketing review of what you have already accomplished. Do you already have a newsletter? Have you done some search engine optimization? Have you already written effective web site copy?

Don’t re-invent the bicycle. Make sure that you put to good use all the marketing materials you have already created. Doing this will save you time going forward.

- Create a marketing plan for your business. Based on what you have discovered during your marketing review, create a plan for going forward with your marketing. If you haven’t done that much in terms of marketing yet, I recommend concentrating on three marketing areas in the beginning: create an effective web site that sells your products and services, get more newsletter subscribers and write and publish articles online.

If you have already done some marketing, your plan may include more advanced techniques.

- Make a commitment to marketing. Marketing is not a one-time action; it is a process that you need to participate in every single day in order to see results. This is why I am asking you to make a commitment to following your marketing plan and promoting your business.

Once you put some time into marketing your business, you will start seeing results.

Stop waiting for something to happen before you start marketing. Create your marketing plan and start marketing today — doing this will make your business more successful and will help you earn more money.

How To Create A Marketing Plan For Your Business

Tuesday, May 12th, 2009
 

I have been watching hundreds of coaches struggle to get clients for their businesses. The most common reason for this is not having a marketing plan. Instead, they do random marketing techniques from time to time hoping that one of them will stick and bring in clients. If you do not have a plan, you will not be able to get clients.

Here is a 5-Step Plan that will help you get more clients for your business:

Become Clear About Your Goals

This is really the first question that you must ask yourself, because what you put into your Marketing Plan will depend on what you want to accomplish. Without knowing what your goals and intentions are you will not be able to find the right marketing actions to market your business.

Find Your Target Market

A lot of the marketing that you do will depend on who your target market is. Decide on your target market before doing anything else. As soon as you are clear on who your target market is, it will become much easier for you to market and it will become easier for you to build your list and get clients.

Create An Effective Web Site For Your Business

Your web site is the tool that helps you build your list and sell your products and services. Your web site must have pages specifically for selling your products, pages specifically for selling your services and pages specifically for building your list. By creating pages with a single purpose your will focus your web site visitors’ attention and inspire more of them to take action with you.

Build Your List

Very few people who come to your web site are going to become your clients immediately. This is because they don’t know you yet and they do not trust you yet. People buy from people they know, like and trust.

When people visit a web site for the first time, they forget all about it a few minutes after they leave. This means that they will only come back to your web site and may potentially become your
clients if you are able to remind them about yourself.

Your newsletter is the best tool you have to get your potential customers to keep coming back to your web site.

Drive Traffic To Your Web Site

Now that you have effective web pages that sell your products and services, as well as a large list list, you must bring in web site traffic.

There are many marketing techniques that will help you bring in traffic. Social networking, article marketing, business blogging, and search engine optimization are all great techniques to bring traffic to your web site.

Start with one and learn how to use it to get web site traffic. Once you are comfortable with using it, move on to the next one and master that approach. This way you will master all online marketing techniques one technique at a time.

Having a marketing plan is the best way to start getting clients for your business. Take an hour right now and start creating your marketing plan to create a successful business!
