Enjoying lunch with some new friends on Day 2 of Monica Shah’s Revenue Breakthrough.
I work with entrepreneurs and small businesses to reduce the overwhelm and frustration of hosting events by providing step-by-step, easy to follow plans for profitable and successful events.
I was a marketing professional for over 20 years, who left a corporate job to start my own agency. I thought the clients would come running as soon as I opened my doors, but guess what? They didn't! I needed to put my own marketing skills to work, and I can do the same for you! Starting a business is very overwhelming. And there's so much to do to share your brand with the world - from figuring out your messaging and ideal client to setting up a website, social media profiles, emails, sales funnels....the list goes on and on. I can take away the overwhelm and give you clarity around your messaging and ideal client as well as provide a step-by-step guide to building a brand you love and get it in front of your ideal customers in no time! Contact me to set up a discovery call to see how I can help!

@tinalwells and I working the Violet Hill Marketing table. Looking forward to the great speakers and chatting about events to amazing entrepreneurs.
Getting excited to speak with amazing ladies about how they can host their own profitable events!
Marketing an event can be completely overwhelming. I get it.
You not only have to deal with all the details of planning the event, but then you have to figure out how to actually get people to attend.
I started organizing events as part of my corporate marketing job 20 years ago - before Facebook was a thing! Getting the word out about the event took at lot of time and effort.
OK, fessing up. It will take more than 5 minutes to promote your event, even now with so many online opportunities to get in front of your audience.
But there ARE things you can do that take only a few minutes to implement, and will get your event in front of a lot more people.
Check out my latest blog post for 5 tips to quickly promote your event. Link in first comment.

Sometimes you need to take a different perspective on things in your business.
Are you stuck on something? Just moving away from it for a day or two, and then coming back to it, can provide clarity or a new viewpoint.

Social media advice from, Elena Hansen, creator of the tagline "But first, coffee."
I was just speaking this morning on a FB Live about being authentic on social media - which includes showing your vulnerabilities. This helps your audience connect with you. Elena touches on this in the article as well.
And a great quote, "If the brand is authentic in every aspect, then its social media will be, too."
Some good ideas in this article but I'd be careful with #1 - you can't be on ALL the platforms. Pick 2 (at least when you're starting and don't have traction built up) where your audience is active and grow your engagement there.
Of course you don't want to put all your eggs in one basket but you also can't spread yourself too thin and be effective.
Are you working from a "set it and forget it" social media strategy? Don't!
As your business changes so should your social media strategy. And with the social media landscape, and platforms, constantly making shifts, you need to reevaluate your program each quarter.
