November "Build Your Organizing Business" Tip:
Market Your Business for Pennies!
If you know me at all you know that I'm all about speaking.  Forget paid advertising and tons of networking.  Get in front of groups of choice prospects and show your expertise!

I know that it's December and it's easy to let your marketing slide as you get ready for the holidays.  Don't!  My mentor, Mark LeBlanc, taught me that the marketing you do now pays off in three months.  So, if in March things are slow it's because you weren't doing much marketing in December.

This is the time to be calling local civic organizations, women's groups, church groups, chamber of commerce, etc. and get on their schedule to speak to them in the spring.  Don't know who to contact? You need to get in front of your niche.

I just read an article by James Roche, www.infoproductguy.com and he said the easiest way to figure out your niche is to look in the mirror.  Yes, you are your choice client. So, where do you hang out? What organizations/associations do you belong to?  These places are where you need to speak.

And, speaking in front of these groups will cost only pennies compared to paid advertising or the time you spend at networking events.

Here's exactly what you do:
  1. Along with googling organizations/associations in your area start carrying along a small spiral notebook.  As you're out and about and you notice a place of business that could use your expertise (such as large insurance companies, large health spas, etc.) write it down in your notebook.
  2. When you get back to your office add these places to your list of possible speaking venues and contact them.
  3. Don't know what to say?  Less is more as they are busy just like everybody else.  Say who are you, what your topic is, and ask if that would be a good fit for their group.  Want to know more about how to do this?  Everything you need to know and do is laid out easily in my Speak Now and Forever Get New Clients Home Study Program.
  4. For the month of December set a goal to contact a certain number of places and don't give up!  Once you start speaking,start demonstrating your expertise, and have a great promotional piece to get them to take action that night - your phone is going to start ringing with the right kind of prospective clients wanting to work with you!
Elizabeth's Assignment:
  1. Make a decision that December is a good time to market.
  2. Follow the steps I gave you.
  3. Take action and listen to the recording of my Speak Now & Forever Get New Clients teleclass.  The link is in the article below.
  4. Stay focused by setting time aside each day/week to work on your presentation and make it fun!
  5. Want a great Intake Form to keep track of your notes while you visit with the meeting planner?  Get it here. This is just one of the many forms/templates you get in my home study program.
