I can count with many hands how many times I have heard people tell tales of their ventures being unsuccessful. It can be very discouraging. It can lead one to think, well how will my goals work out if thiers didnt? Especially when they have cool items and services to offer.
Have you ever heard that saying “Different strokes for different folks? Well…it’s true! What works for one may not work for another.
While my issue isn’t with getting attention and sales, but rather organizing everyone’s requests (That’s another topic for another time.) I am happy to share some of the methods I use to grow my business.
1. Be Serious
You have to treat your business just like you would any job. No one will take you seriously if you do not take yourself, and what you do seriously. You would not lay around all day on your job so you should not do the same when it comes to your business. There is always something to do. Plan to attend a seminar. Learn a skill. Buy a book relating to your craft. Make a to-do list and get every thing done.
2.Network with others
It is not enough to think that people will always come to you. Truth be told, you are probably not getting sales because people don’t know you or what you do. Introduce yourself to others. Join social media groups and actually chime in on the discussions that are going on. Show your interest in others and they will want to support you.
3. Don’t be afraid
There is absolutely no room for fear. Everyone who has ever been great has made a mistake or a thousand. Everyone who has ever gained something great took a risk. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and into your destiny.
You have to be your number one supporter. No one will go harder for you than you. Make sure you are introducing your brand every chance you get. Post on as many platforms available. Especially dedicate your time where you receive the most engagement and referrals.
5. Learn from others
I always say the greatest never stop learning. You will never know it all. Even when you become one of the best at your craft, there will always be something to learn. You can learn from those who have more experience than you, and also from those who have the least amount of experience than you do. Be open to learning. Be open-minded when it comes to learning. Your success depends on it.
6. KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE
You are not for everyone…and it’s ok. Do not get easily distracted by rejection. Your goal should not be to sell to everyone you meet, but rather to your audience. You need to know who your products are sepcifcally designed for and why. How will what you offer benefit them? Know who you are talking to and focus only on them.
