HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL AT DIRECT SALES

Should you Hire a Business Coach?

My Business Adviser is tooting its own horn a bit this week and talking about how I can help you. I personally have never run across a business that didn’t need some level of business coaching….maybe not me, but they needed help from someone. We all try to do everything ourselves with mixed results. We can’t be experts at everything which is why we bring in other people to help out. Myself, I have to have a brilliant accountant because that is my weak point. I know the basics but my accountant fills in the knowledge gaps for me. Here is a quick infographic talking about Business Coaches in general. I will share stories this week as well and feel free to send me any questions you might have.

 

Should You Have A Business Coach

Small Business Tools

It’s been a rough week with the flu dropping me and everyone else at the office like flies. It’s a good thing I can coach virtually so I don’t have sick clients as well. Today I am posting two infographics about small businesses to make up for my week of rest. The first one is about the 5 Social Media tools you should be using and the second id a Small Business Start-up Checklist for those of you who are just beginning this journey. Something for everyone! As always drop me a line on Facebook if you have any questions or think you may want a coach to help your business take things up a notch. First consult is free and you will walk away with actionable info, not just a sales pitch.

LinkedIn as a Tool

There is no one step solution to your Social Media Marketing needs but LinkedIn can be a force multiplier to your efforts especially if you are targeting other businesses. It should be a part of your strategy, not your entire strategy. Use it mostly for networking if your targets are consumers and not businesses. If you have content marketing as your primary strategy use LinkedIn as a way to gain credibility. LinkedIn is very versatile and businesses ignore it at their peril.

LinkedIn is a channel to increase, not a tool to replace, your networking efforts, and it is an excellent vehicle to facilitate some facets of your marketing and business strategies.” – Viveka vonRosen (@LinkedInExpe.png
