We Have To Find A Way To Increase This Business
My new mentor wrote, “We have to find a way to increase this business. You know or maybe you haven’t thought about this, and that is your business is either growing or shrinking. So the only option is to expand. ”
Entrepreneurs frown and shy away from strategic marketing because they don’t understand how to build a list of potential clients who are interested in spending money on their products/services.
If we asked any business owner regardless of a new startup from scratch business, an existing brick and mortar company, or an online internet business their motives and thoughts are the same. They all want their businesses to grow, but they don’t know what steps to take. I recommend Email Marketing!
Your best chance of success with email marketing is to create a plan based on the products that you want to promote. It all starts with your product funnel, which leads to your content marketing plan, which leads to your email marketing calendar. All email marketing should be focused toward building your list by promoting your products and/or services and that requires planning. The following steps will help you increase the results of your email marketing.
Grow or Die!
Focus on what I am getting ready to say to you, “You have too many ideas and you are confusing yourself.” For instance, we are considering expanding our services and we haven’t earned a profit from the “Hub” that houses five other businesses “Under One Roof.” We can’t decide whether we should increase our mailings, visibility and secure ad space. We have too many directions. In this case, what should we do?
First, I don’t believe in doing anything without a plan. I am a person who has a lot of things going on in my mind and prefers seeing it on paper or on the screen. Mind Mapping allows you to brainstorm and put put your ideas in front of you so you can visually see what does and doesn’t make sense. I personally recommend Free Mind because it’s free and you have an opportunity to learn at your pace. The one thing that new entrepreneurs seem too have in common is that they can’t seem to identify and hit the target! Getting organized by organizing your thoughts will get you closer to your target.
If you are a Baby Boomer you are really confused! You need a system to follow mainly because you are structured and in most cases very well organized; you just need some type of guide to follow.
