THE RIGHT WAY

OUR GOAL IS TO GET YOU TO YOURS

Making tons of money and hitting your business goals isn't actually difficult. It's not hard work. It's clever work. Successful entrepreneurs and corporate marketing and sales teams all have the same thing in common. They know who their ideal client is, where they hang out, how to get continuous access to them and have total clarity on the problem that they solve for their clients.

 

Below is the exact formula that Sandra followed to grow each of her successful companies, including this one. No sales, no struggle, no hard days. She wrote down these questions and then figured out how to answer them for herself. And we can do the same for you!

 

WHO IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?

Would you believe us that 80% of entrepreneurs that we work with get this wrong? And 100% of them thought they had it right. You need to be able to clearly articulate both verbally and in writing who your ideal client is, in two forms; demographics and psychographics. Every successful brand in the world knows who they are targeting. Your favorite brands are not by accident. You fit their profile. And we need to do the same for your business.

WHERE DOES YOUR IDEAL CLIENT HANGOUT?

Once you know who it is that you're looking for your next step is to figure out where they hang out, both online and offline. 

 

Are they in Facebook groups?

Where do they shop?

Where do they vacation?

Where do they spend their leisure time?

Who do they hang out with?

Where do they work?

Where do they spend their money?

 

Knowing this is so powerful. But you can't just show up uninvited so how do you "get them"? Scroll down!

HOW ARE YOU GOING TO GET CONTINUOUS ACCESS TO YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?

We all know someone who is always trying to sell us something. It might be the guy in the mall with the hair straightener or your friend with the infamous plastic containers or lipgloss. If you're looking for those products, great! They provide a solution. Nothing is more uncomfortable than a hard sell when you're not interested. 

 

To avoid being that person you need to create and maintain authentic and mutually beneficial relationships in the community and be seen as a benefit or solution, rather than a sell. We can show you how to do this, suggest some opportunities and help you to prepare the pitch materials to sell yourself (comfortably) into the community.

 

Selling is so much fun when you don't have to do it. 

WHAT IS YOUR NEXT STEP?

If you're not clear on all of the above questions, that's OK. Figuring it out is our 6th sense. Some would call it our superpower.

 

Within a single 45 minute consulting session with us we'll have answers to each of those key questions for you. And over a series sessions with us and using our design and web services, we can help you to pull together each of the assets you need to smash your business goals. 

 

We have done it for hundreds of business owners in 2017 alone, and over 80 clients are currently mid-process with us.

 

We're ready to do the same thing for your business.
