Get Featured in My Small Business E-book

November 1, 2014

Would you like to share your business services and/or expertise with 10,000+ women on Business Social Network Sites?

There are thousands of women who need quality services and coaching, but they are unaware about you and your business.

Research indicates that one of the keys to marketing on the Internet and attracting customers is to “provide valuable information”.

If you would like to  write a business article to attract customers, here is your chance to submit your BEST business article to be included in my soon-to-be released FREE eBook entitled, “Take Your Business to Levels Thought Unreachable”.

Creating eBooks that are full of valuable information is a BIG part of what I do online and I’d like to give you an opportunity to be a part of the process.  This is an especially great PR opportunity for those with business blogs and networks and those who offer small business consulting services.

This eBook will be compiled of advertorial submissions.  An advertorial is an advertisement in the form of an informational editorial designed to offer valuable information, and at the same time promote your website/blog.  I am essentially giving you the opportunity to purchase ad space in my eBook, in the form of an information article.

I’m looking for business articles on topics such as marketing, branding, publishing, working at home, social media, sales, website design, and time management.

ARTICLE GUIDELINES

700 word max; 2 page max

Include “About the Author” section at the end of the article – maximum 3 sentences long with website url.

Your article CANNOT be a sales letter to promote your business, product, or service. Your article must be in the form of an informational piece, showing the reader how to do something business related or how something business related works.

The “About the Author” section included after your article is where your business information (website, email, product and/or services) will be shared.

SUBMISSION FEE:  $38

This is an advertising opportunity and as such there is a nominal fee.

WHAT ARE YOU PAYING FOR?

Once your article is approved, you will get featured in an eBook for entrepreneurs.  This eBook will be freely distributed to the subscribers of my business blog, business social networks, which combined have 10,000+ members.  This is your chance to gain more exposure and promote you business to my unique circle of entrepreneurs.  This is an especially great PR opportunity for those with business blogs and networks, and those who offer small business consulting services.

Statistically, speaking, I have found people res pond better to information sharing than they do to blatant advertising, which is why article marketing is one of the best marketing strategies online.  When people value what you say they will find value in what you sell.  Do you need more people to find value in what you do?  Submit your article to kbooker533@gmail.com and put ADVERTORIAL in the subject line.

6 Principles of Successful Business Networking

January 9, 2011

When you learn how to network more effectively, you will gain a new appreciation for networking and realize it can enhance your personal and professional life.  Use the following five networking tips to ensure your networking experience and success.

1.  Set Goals

Before you attend a networking event, set goals. Ask yourself the following questions: Who do I want to meet? How many people do I want to meet? Why do I want to meet these people? Where will I meet these people?

2.  Always Carry Business Cards with You at All Times

You never know who you may run into who can benefit from your business.  Be sure to put your business cars where they are easily accessible, such as your wallet or purse.

3. Take Good Notes

When you meet people and collect their business cards, make sure to take notes on the back of their business cards.

This information help you build your relationships with people. You should transfer this information to a database, so that you can continue to add future notes and readily access this information for future use.

4.  Offer to Help Others

When you talk to people, pay special attention to their personal and business needs, and you will know how you can help them.  Also, offer to help others.

You can help others by sharing are to share resources, making introductions, and providing consulting services. By extending yourself to others, you will build a reputation as a doer rather than a taker.

5. Follow Up

After you meet people, it’s crucial to follow up with people that you meet through networking within 2 – 3 days after your initial meeting. If you don’t follow up, you won’t be able to build relationships and your network.

If you don’t follow through, you won’t be taken seriously and your networking efforts will not be very effective. You’ll also create a bad reputation.

6. Build Relationships

Continue to build your relationship with people after you meet them at networking events.  If you don’t foster relationships, your networking will be ineffective. won’t be very valuable and attentive to your needs.

A great way to be in constant communication with people is to create an e-mail newsletter. Tailor the newsletter to a general interest so everyone can benefit from it. You can include business articles and events.

In addition, when you come across articles or other resources that could benefit individual people, send these items to them. Your contacts will appreciate your thoughtfulness and they will remember you.

4 Mistakes in Setting Goals

January 3, 2011

Mistake # 1 – The goal is not clear. For example, how many people have a goal of making $100,000?  So, what will you do to make $100,000?

Solution: When setting goals, be sure to clearly define exactly what that goal means to you.

Mistake # 2 – The goal is too big. When people set goals that are too big, they are setting themselves up to fail because it is unrealistic

Solution: Make sure that you know how you are going to achieve your goals.

Mistake # 3 – The goal doesn’t have benchmarks. If your goal is to write a business plan in 3 days, you may get discouraged and quit after the 2nd day. Many goals are left along the roadside because people haven’t set realistic benchmarks.

Solution: In the example above people don’t normally write a business plan in 3 days.  It takes weeks of research and writing.  Therefore, set intermediate goals for yourself, such as completing the vision and target market sections of the business plan in one week, and have victory celebrations when you meet each one.

Mistake # 4 – The goal isn’t connected to what’s really important to you.   Many times people set goals to conform to another person’s definition of success? Unless the goal is really important to you, it is very easy to give up when it gets tough to achieve it.

Solution: Whenever you set a goal, ask yourself why it is important to you.  Some people want to achieve wealth to please other people. But it is so important to connect goal to the passion is because without passion it is so easy to “throw in the towel”.

Business Networking

May 17, 2010

Business Networking is a vital sales tool for entrepreneurs and small businesses. I’ve seen a lot of great advice given over the years – but very few people touch on what I have found to be the most important skill of all. Most networking advice focuses on what to say – how to position yourself, and how to develop your elevator pitch.

Most networkers rush into talking about themselves, and the services and/or products their business offers.   However, networking is a long term game – and the initial meeting is just the beginning.   Do not rush to blurt out all the details of your services.  But be the first to ask “what do you do?” and focus on the other person.  This gives you 5 advantages:

  • You can discover whether the other person is a potential customer or a potential referrer for you – and adjust your “elevator speech” accordingly.
  • You can see how to best pitch your services to hit the right “hot buttons” for them.
  • If you offer multiple services you can identify which service is the most appropriate for them and focus on a powerful specific message for that –particular service, rather than using a generic “catch all”.
  • By listening to the way they communicate and the language they use,  you can identify the best way to communicate with them in a compelling manner.
  • You can pick up specific areas where you can help people to connect them too or direct them to resources.  By adding value for them before you’ve even talked about yourself you’ll make a tremendous impression.
