4 Ways to Spring Clean Your Brand for Success..png

What's up people!

Spring is right around the corner so today's Bank Notes will give you 4 ways to spring clean your brand for a successful new season. 

As we know time flies, so preparation is key to make sure our brands continue to grow and thrive. 

Just in case you're in a hurry, make sure you scroll to the bottom for info on this week's classes.

So, how do we get ready for a new quarter? 

Read on.

1. Review Quarter 1.

Every 3 months review your products, processes, and profits.

All of these will push your business, so check which products have sold the best, and which have sold the worst.

How can you boost your best sellers and is it time to let go of the ones that aren't selling?

What processes or systems are helping your business and which ones could be hurting it? 

For example, do you have an unused mailing list, are you paying for software that doesn't work the way you expected, or is there a break in your customer service flow?

Do you need to take more time to learn how to use them or is it time to cancel them?

Profits are important because you don't want to be putting more into your business than you're getting out, so record all of the sales you've made and check it against all of your taxes, software, fees, etc. 

Are you seeing a true profit? 

What can be increased or decreased? 

Have you reviewed your prices recently?

2. Clean out inboxes, subscriptions, memberships and subscribers.

It's easy to get overwhelmed with freebies and discounts, so go through your inbox and do some unsubscribing. 

Your notifications will thank you and so will the person sending you the emails you're not opening. 

Anything that doesn't motivate or move you to action, let it go. 

For your mailing list, clean out any old bounced, complained, or cold subscribers. 

Quality over Quantity, and you only want to pay for the subscribers you are showing interest in your content.

How are you attracting new people to your list? What's your current freebie and how is it converting?

Do you have a tripwire for it?

How about memberships? Are you paying for things you aren't using?

3. Organize and update your office space.

Moving my desk last year was the exact spark I needed to refocus my creativity (though now I'm ready to move it again, plus I'm itching to knock down the wall between my office and my shipping room.) 

Working from home means you will spend a great deal of time in your home office, so why not give it a quick makeover. 

You can move your desk so that you're facing a new direction, update your wall art, get some new desk accessories or maybe a new office chair. ( I love any reason to visit Office Depot, Target or Hobby Lobby :))

Your space should be a happy one, so make it reflective of your goals and who you are. 

4. Marketing, marketing, marketing!

How are you getting your content out to your audience? 

Are you using videos or Livestreams? 

How about Instagram Stories?

Have you started using ads to promote?

What have you invested?

We can't expect our audience to just happen across our content and offers so take some time to create the best marketing strategy you can. 

Alright, make this Spring great!!! And what better way to grow than to increase your knowledge so here are this week's classes. (For the first two classes, the first 100 students for each will be just $29, then the price increases to $49.)

My First $14,000 In Sales in 2018.

My First $14,100 of 2018..png

Hey!!

Can you believe it’s already the end of the first week of 2018? I have a good feeling that things are going to move quickly this year and I’ve ready for it.

What have you done this week?

Did you take some time to reflect on last year, maybe you got some rest, or did you hit the ground running for the new year?

I was the last and this morning I’m grinning pretty happy about the plans I made for this year.

Now, I debated about the title for this email because I didn’t want to sound like I was bragging but at the same time I wanted to share I hit my first goal of the year.

This is going to be my million dollar year and that means going hard with a plan to get there. I don’t want to make it alone so sharing the strategies and successes are part of the process.

I was also reminded of my keys to making over $700,000 last year which was to have money talks. Too many of us are afraid to talk about the money which is why many of us develop fears and limitations around what we can have and achieve. I will not be bound or weighed down by that this year and I hope you’re joining me. (if you don’t have the 30 Keys I Learned To Make Over 700K In 2017, Click here to order the eBook.)

Alright so on to the Strategy.

Step #1- Ask yourself 3 questions.

What do they need?

What do I offer?

What’s the desired outcome?

At the beginning of the year, many people are in resolution mode.

They want to start businesses, start eating healthier, start saving money, take better care of their skin, dress better, grow their hair out, etc.

Where does this renewal fit into your business?

I teach entrepreneurs how to create connections with their communities, build, information/digital products, and increase their income through marketing strategies.

My clients or potential clients need help with all of these areas.

I offer eBooks, webinars, Masterclasses, Membership, and more to fit those needs.

The desired results are for them to understand and be able to execute social media strategies, understand and gain the knowledge to create sales funnels, they want to see increased engagement and increased sales from their social media.

Step #2- Determine which products will help your clients get the desired results.

For me, the top 5 products that have sold this year are:

1. The Business: Unlocked Bundle has sold 164 courses at $47 and made $7708.00

2. The Ultimate Guide to Instagram 2.0 has sold 17 eBooks and made $459.00

3. The Ultimate Business Plan for Creatives has sold 18 eBooks and made $360.00

4. $700K in 2017 eBook has sold 118 eBooks and made $2,124.00

5. Social Media Success in 2018 (Live Masterclass.) has sold 96 seats and made $1937.28.

I’ve had a few other products that have a few sales, but just these five have brought in $12,588.28.

Not bad for the first 4 days of the year.

Which brings us to step #3- PROMOTE YOUR SOLUTIONS, THEN OFFER YOUR PRODUCT.

Focusing on the products may leave a potential customer unclear on what they will achieve.  

By focusing on the solution once your client connects to what they want to achieve, the product becomes their key to getting what they want, and the sale becomes so much easier.

Offer the solutions every day and watch your audience flock to your products!

Alrighty guys, since the 5 products were doing so well, I put them into a bundle so you can get all 5 listed above and save nearly $50 with the Begin Your Biz Bundle.
