Small Business Owners Avoid This

To really make a difference and allow your voice to be heard. Small business owners should avoid this. There is so much noise in the world right now. Social media, authors, bloggers, coaches all trying to get the same thing: Attention for their post or business. The other day I received a message on LinkedIN. I get them all the time. Their approach is the reason for today’s vlog. They are making a huge mistake and I hope you don’t do the same thing. I do mention some products but you have to understand this also goes out to my personal list. Are you on it? Why not? They know me and that is the reason I share more in this video.

In keeping true with my short post theory that’s all I’ll say for now. If you want to know more well you’ll have to watch the vlog.

I do ask a very heartfelt question and I hope you hear it and respond. I’d love to feature you when the post goes live.

Big businesses are really getting on board with entrepreneurs lately. Intuit has a contest, Walmart, Huggies did and it’s all great news for women entrepreneurs.

An  diaper changing pillow with a smart phone option that stops squirmy babies during diaper changes. I have some crazy news to share and with this news I could use your help. By helping me you can also help others and I’ll explain that part in a moment.

Do You Really Need A Coach Or Consultant For Your Business

As a coach and a key note speaker this is a question that I field quite a bit. “Do I really need a business coach or consultant?” My reply, “Only if you like success”

We all suffer from the “I can do everything by myself” syndrome. But the reality is that is very counter productive to your success as a small business owner.

Michael Jordan was one of the greatest basketball players of all time, yet he needed a coach. The problem that we face is many of us feel a coach means you are missing something. Nothing could be further from the truth. A coach is simply someone who has a clear vision, who can see things from the outside that perhaps you’ve missed.

A coach brings out your absolute best. A great business coach will push you further then you could ever push yourself. They will challenge you to take chances, and make decisions you never thought possible. Why? Because they have a different view then you do. They are looking from the outside and you are living it from the inside.

A business coach not only helps you with your sales. A great coach, helps you with marketing, branding, and also your personal life. A great coach knows that where there is a weakness that where a breakdown will happen.

So how do you pick a business coach?

Success stories. What have others said, do they inspire, motivate get results? Then they could be a great fit for your business.

Personality. Each coach is different. If you are a very stern person then a coach with a humorous personality may not be the right fit for you.

Most coaches will offer a short consultation. Take advantage of that to see if they are the right business coach for you.

Skill. Normally you will be able to tell with one call if this coach can help you with your business or not. So see if their skill set matches your needs.

Availability If you need a weekly coach make sure they are available first. Coaches keep various hours and not everyone is open when you need them. Find that out up front to avoid any confusion.

If you are looking for a business coach I am happy to assist you. Just fill out this quick form and I’ll get back with you soon.

Please note sometimes it may take 36 hours before you get a reply due to the number of requests.Click This Link & Let’s Get Started! I Can’t Wait To Meet You!

How To Use Social Media For Small Business Marketing

Recently I was at a local networking event for small business in Las Vegas. The event was actually to learn more about marketing. I was there because I’m working with a former Silicon Valley Investor on my business plan for SnuggWugg.  I watched during the break and a local business owner walked up with her card. I heard her say, ” No they can’t contact me. They have to go to the website but there is not way to contact me there.” I thought “What! ?”  Then I heard other people talk about social media for small business and over heard things like: “Social media is useless, I don’t get results from social media, I’m not sure it even matters, real customers don’t come from social media for small business owners.”

Seriously I wanted to just flip out. I am trying to understand why so many people don’t understand how valuable social media for small business marketing can be.

Before I share how you can use it let me tell you what it’s done for me. In just under two years I’ve:

Won a $15,000 grant for my diaper changing pillow baby product the SnuggWugg® from Huggies Mom Inspired Grant.

I’ve won about 4 different awards for blogging and entrepreneur efforts.

Speak for local and corporate events.

I’ve been called upon numerous times to consult for MAJOR brands and companies via Twitter and LinkedIn to consult for them and help get their message to a target audience.

Numerous internet radio broadcasts.

I’ve been featured on Yahoo!, Business Insider, The Wall Street Journal (upcoming) StartUp Princess, She Owns It , Problogger and more.  All FREE by the way.

So let me ask you this question. Could your small business use a piece in the Wall Street Journal to get the word out about your brand or service?  YES!

This is the power of social media for small business marketing my friend. And if you are still one of those in the dark ages thinking that social media is useless, well come off the crazy train I think you’ve been riding around long enough.

I’m not one of those “This is the ONLY way” type of people. Meaning I’m not going to tell you that you can build a business totally based upon social media. But I am going to tell you that you are missing so many valuable opportunities for new clients, for free press coverage, for connections, and for interviews if you don’t learn how to engage your small business in social media.

Let me tell you it’s not that hard. If you can walk up to a person and talk about your company then you can handle everything on social media.

I hope this helps you to kick it in gear a little but if not please email me and let me help you. lisa@lisacashhanson.com

Here are a few tips to get you moving:

Twitter is not for kids I’ve connected with major brands, Fortune 500 companies and CEO’s just from one tweet. So set up your account and start using it. Make sure there is a link to your companies website, or your email letter or something so people can find you.

Respond to tweets. You never know who they know or how they can help you. Communicate with people just as you would a person you met at the coffe shop. If they said hi you wouldn’t walk away without responding right? So it is with Social Media.

Engage. If you are a CEO for goodness sake get on there! You can ask questions find out how your company can improve learn what they’d like to buy next. It’s a marketing dream for your company and your customers want to speak with you.

Go unconventional. In social media think of fun ways to engage your prospects. It’s a valuable tool for business but you can keep it fun and social at the same time.

Use LinkedIN, Facebook, Klout, Google Plus and others to get your brand out there.

Lastly just take the leap. If you’ve never tried social media for small business now is your time. I don’t want you to miss out on the amazing opportunities that lie right at the end of your keyboard.

Your next sale, your next big client, your next huge opportunity may be waiting for you with just one tweet. That is how you can use social media for small business marketing.

Email List Building Strategies For BIG Profits (That Work)

There are many myths about email list building strategies. One of those myths is that without a big list you won’t be able to make any money. What if I told you that you could actually make money even if you had a very tiny list? Great news right? I’d like to share a few tips to show you some powerful email list building strategies to build your email list and create big profits. When you are beginning to build a list you can also create survey’s to ask your followers via blog posts what type of topics and products are interesting to them. If you offer products they love as a free opt in that will also increase your opt in rate and help you to build an email list fast.

Email List Building Strategies:

Craft an exciting, irrestible and compelling that makes people think I MUST get on this list. They will say that if your offer is great.

This can be an mp3 of a coaching call, a blueprint for success, a pdf list building template or any other enticing offer.

Solve a problem.

Your list is filled with REAL people who have real pains and real problems. If you offer solutions that solve those problems you’ll increase your opt in rates and you’ll be helping people at the same time.

Use content marketing to drive potential clients your way.

Write compelling content and share that on sites like  About.com or EzineArticles.com. When you upload your articles make sure your resource or bio box contains all the information your client will need to find you.  If you are not great at writing you can source this out via odesk or Fiverr. Both sites are great.

Use groups via Google Plus and LinkedIn to draw your ideal client.

Start groups for your ideal audience and share valuable information. Tell them they can receive more by subscribing to your newsletter.  It’s a great way to draw your ideal clients and those who you can truly help.

Use your blog as a list building  platform.

Craft posts with keywords that suit your ideal client. Then write information that truly helps them.

Guest post on other blogs.

When you guest post on other blogs that can drive people to your list also. It’s a great way to share your knowledge and also add value to their prospects.

Use video marketing to drive clients to your opt in page.

Share some great information like I’m doing in this email list building strategies series. Yours could be marketing, using social media to build email lists, or whatever you’d like. Give some great pieces of information but leave them wanting more and then lead them to your opt in page for your exciting and compelling offer.

Interview other experts.

Interview experts and record the call. Then share that as a free offer for your opt in list. You can also create products very quickly using this method. By building a rapport with that expert you can ask if they’d like to offer the product to their list and get 50% of the profit. Now you’ve just been introduced to their list and they have a great product to offer. It’s a win for all.

Use these strategies and soon you’ll have a list filled with your ideal clients that you can share information filled with incredible value. You’ll be building trust and then you can market your products that will truly change their life!

Use video marketing. You can share list building tips via a business video on Youtube . I created a fun video about an upcoming business webinar but you can do anything. Include your email opt in link in the first line of the description. Add annotations on the video asking them to subscribe.They will.

Did you know it can take up to 15 exposures to a new food for it to become familiar to a child?

That’s what the research says, according to Suzzanne Myer, MS, RD, CD. “When trying new foods, always be sure to serve alongside some familiar foods, because kids eat what’s familiar to them,” she advised us. “If they say they don’t care for it the first few attempts, make a few more attempts!”
