2 key things to consider when marketing your business!

This week I share a throwback Marketing Monday FB Live video from 2020 where I share all about PLANNING your marketing and the two things to consider when planning your marketing.  Watch the video or read the summary to learn more.

Do you have a Marketing PLAN for your business?

Two Things To Consider When Planning Your Marketing:

  1. Have a Written Marketing Plan – you have to be strategic getting out of your head and write your plan down. Do you want to do blogs, or training videos, events, etc.? Be intentional about doing things that resonate with you. Minimize doing things that you only ‘think’ you have to do. Avoid RAM – RAM is Random Acts of Marketing! We no longer want to participate in RAM.
  2. Be Spirit-Led – begin to ask the question of what God wants you to do in your business. Stop doing what you want to do and check in with your spirit to learn what you should be doing. Be obedient to what your spirit is guiding to do.

Pray about what your strategy needs to be and write it down!

Want to learn how to be more Spirit-led when it comes to marketing your business?  Join me Thursday, April 21st at 2:00 pm ET for the Spirit-led Marketing Workshop!

3 Ways to be Spirit-Led in Your Business

We previously discussed the importance of tapping into the vision that you have for your business and how that can impact the success of your business. We discovered the vision statement for several well-known companies in the post  for a few of the most well-known businesses in the ‘What’s the vision you have for your business?’ blog post. 

Today, let’s move from vision to action and focus on Holy Spirit-Led Action. Watch this throwback Marketing Monday video below or read the summary to discover 3 ways to take Spirit-Led Action in your business. 

3 Ways to be Spirit-Led in the Actions of Your Business

  1. Opportunity – Business owners and entrepreneurs come across opportunities unexpectedly all the time. Many opportunities we experience are not planned and some of them are not for us. When we are presented with an opportunity we have a feeling of being led and sometimes we do not. We must know the difference of being led to an opportunity and being presented with an opportunity.
  2. Ideas – Ideas come and go by the minute because we see and hear a lot about and from other businesses. Every idea we have is not for us to take action on. However, when an idea is dropped in our spirit, we begin to feel that tug at our hearts. This is a tug that we feel strongly and it seems it will not leave us.
  3. Collaborations – We connect with people all the time in person and online. God creates divine connections. Divine connections are appointed times that you are to be with others to deliver and/or receive a specific message. We are here to do the work we are called to do, but it is not necessary for it to be done alone all the time. Pay attention to the collaborations and partnerships that present themselves in your business.

If you want to go deeper into how you can be Holy Spirit-Led in the Actions of your business, I encourage you to  join me for the Spirit-led Marketing Workshop on Thursday, April 21st at 2:00 pm ET to discover  three steps to be Spirit-led in your  Marketing.

The Power of 90-Day Goals & Plans

90-Day Goals & Plans

When I work with my clients on business goal setting and marketing activity planning, the thought of planning out activity for 12 months can be overwhelming and intimidating for many. So, I shifted from 12-month increments to 6-month increments. Then, I’ve found in working with many entrepreneurs and business owners is that there is POWER  in focusing on 90-Day increments.

When we focus on 3 months/90 Days, it’s less intimidating and easy to manage, so for a while now I’ve really focused on 90-Day business goals and marketing planning with my clients. In fact, I created a planner that’s focused on planning your marketing for 90-Days (shameless plug for my planner, the B.E.S.T. Marketing Planner, a 90 Day Guide to Help You Master Your Marketing and Grow Your Business). 

 Here a some reasons why setting goals for 90 days and planning for 90 days at a time is SUPER powerful:

Reach more people by amplifying your voice!

One of the key ways to reach more people in the Marketplace so that they can learn more about you and the services that you offer is to amplify your message.  When I looked up
the definition of “Amplify” on dictionary.com, it is defined as to make larger,
greater or stronger; enlarge; extend. 

When I saw the word “enlarge” in the definition, it reminded me of the popular prayer of Jabez in I Chronicles [4:10]:

Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, ‘Oh that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and You would keep me from evil, that I might not cause pain! ‘ So God granted him what he requested.

Jabez requested several things:

·       Bless me
·       Enlarge my territory
·       Be with me
·       Keep me from evil

And guess what, God answered his prayer! So I want to encourage you today, to pray a
similar prayer, don’t feel shy to ask God to:

·       Bless your business
·       Enlarge your business
·       Partner with you in business
·       Keep bad things from happening to your business

Prayer is powerful and is an advantage that we have as believers in business, so consistently pray for your business. 

Partnering with God is one of the best ways to grow your business.  God is a God of order, a God of detail, and as your partner in business He will give you specific instructions. He will instruct you on what you need to be doing in the marketplace to make an impact, create an
influence, and have an income from the work that you do. 

One of the things that God instructs us to do is to write things down, “write the vision make it plain.” Writing down God’s instructions for marketing your business can be one of the BEST things you can do for your business. 

In fact, in the upcoming Marketplace Messenger Masterclass you will discover the two things you can create in order to write down and move forward with marketing and promoting your business, so be sure to join me on Wednesday, March 23rd
at 2:00 pm ET
in the Marketplace Messenger Masterclass to learn more!

Overwhelm v. Overflow

When it comes to marketing your business in 2022 there are 1001+ ways to market and promote your business. For the average entrepreneur and/or business owner, it can be overwhelming with all the things you need to DO to market your business. But as believers, we know that we don’t do things in our own strength, but we are guided and led by God specifically about how to BE and what to DO in the marketplace.   

When we are Spirit-led in marketing our business, we move from overwhelm to overflow. What exactly does it look like to be Spirit-led when it comes to marketing your business?  

In this post, I will share how to simplify your marketing so you can step into overflow and avoid overwhelm.

The first step to simplify your marketing is to create a spirit-led marketing plan-  A plan that keeps you organized so you know what you need to be doing to market and promote your business on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.  Here are 3 things to include in a spirit-led marketing plan:

1.  Your marketing foundation–  Your marketing foundation includes 5 key things


2.  Your top 3 purpose-driven goals-  Identifying the top 3 goals God has given you for the next 90 days

3.  Take massive Spirit-led action–  Once you have identified your God-given goals then the next step is to take massive Sprit-led action even if it is outside of your comfort zone!

These 3 steps will help you to simplify your marketing and move from overwhelm to overflow in your business.  Want to discover more about being spirit-led in your marketing and becoming a marketplace messenger in your industry?

Celebrating Women’s History Month

March is Women’s History Month which gives us the opportunity to remind ourselves of the many accomplishments of women throughout history including our contribution to culture, society, science, politics and my favorite…business!

Did you know that originally Women’s History was marked by one day but has since evolved to a full month?

 Here’s 5 fun facts about Women’s History Month.

  1. The first Women’s History Day was held in 1909
  2. The day became Women’s History Week in 1978
  3. In 1987, it became Women’s History Month
  4. Since 1995, every president has issued a proclamation declaring March Women’s History Month
  5. Every Women’s History Month has a theme, this year’s theme is “Women Providing Healing, Promoting Hope,”   
 
Let’s take time to reflect on the theme this month and think of ways we can provide healing and hope especially during these challenging times in the world.  Also, let’s take the time to celebrate the many accomplishments and achievements that women have made to society and in the world!  Happy Women’s History Month!

Your Marketplace Message

This challenge is really about getting clear, consistent, and confident with your marketing so you can easily attract the clients you are called to serve and I’m excited to bring it all together on Day 5.

The first step to a successful result is commitment. Your commitment begins with you, but ultimately it’s a commitment to those you are called to serve. This marketing challenge is different than most because we are not talking about the strategies we are talking more about your marketing foundation.

What is the message that God is giving you to share with the marketplace and how are you showing up when sharing that message? Proverbs [18:21] talks about the tongue having the power of life and death. And those who love it will eat its fruit.

This is basically telling us the power of our message, the power of our voice. It’s so powerful and important in the marketplace because we have the ability to create life and death based on the words that come out of our mouths. Our marketplace message is powerful and how it impacts our clients and the marketplace is just as powerful. We experience the fruit from it when we are clear on what our marketplace message needs to be.

If you’re a woman of faith in business who is a coach, consultant, and/or author and you want to reach more people, share your message, and/or get more clients…then you are invited to schedule a Marketplace Messenger Intensive.

During this time you will:

  • Create your results-driven marketing plan
  • Set your intention for your top 3 purpose-driven business goals
  • Create your marketing foundation
  • Create a Spirit-led marketing strategy
  • Create a marketing calendar and schedule to cover the next 90 days
  • And so much more…

It is time to dive deeper, join me for a Marketplace Messenger Intensive.

Why knowing who you are called to serve is important for your business

Last week, our focus was Mission and the impact of a mission statement on your business.  This week we shall place our focus on how to determine your IDEAL CLIENT AKA who you’re called to serve in the marketplace.  Watch the video below, or read the post to learn why an ideal client profile is important to your business.

I have found that it is difficult for many business owners and entrepreneurs to determine their ideal client. Most believe it is best to attract any client; however, they do not understand that your message does not resonate to everyone.

Key Points to Consider when Determining your Ideal Client:

  1. DEMOGRAPHICS – The description of your ideal client to this includes age, gender, race, income, etc. This helps to determine how you market to the ideal client.
  2. PSYCHOGRAPHICS – What does your ideal client think? What is their personality type? What does your ideal client like? What are they attracted to? What are their social activities? What are their religious preferences?
  3. PROBLEMS – What problems does your ideal client have? Think about all the problems they have that your product or service resolves.
  4. SOLUTIONS – What is your solution for your ideal client’s problem? Focus on being the problem solver instead of making the sell.

If you take these points into consideration when narrowing down who your ideal client is, you will better market your product or service. Ultimately, you will see an increase in your clients and revenue.

The impact of a mission statement on your business

We have talked about vision and purpose in our previous videos, and today’s focus is 

Mission Statement – what your company will do on a daily basis to make your vision a reality. It should include who you serve, what you serve and how you do it. Vision is your long-term goal.  Your mission is your daily activity, your grind or hustle to improve the world, your industry or marketplace.

My mission is to stop RAM.  RAM is Random Acts of Marketing.  We need to have strategic marketing plans so we can achieve more clients and money in our business.

The importance of mission statements in business is that people like to get behind missions. If your business mission statement is articulated clearly you will attract your ideal client.

Want to get clear on your marketing foundation including your purpose, mission and vision statement so you can attract the people you are called to serve in the marketplace?  Be sure to join me for the Attract the Clients Your Called to Serve 5-Day Marketing Challenge from February 21-25, 2022
