Must-Do Marketing For Solo Estheticians and Massage Therapists

Whether you are a solo esthetician, stylist or massage therapist – going it on your own has its benefits and challenges. Without a retail location, you may feel that you are at a marketing disadvantage to salons or day spas. Little do you know, most of those day spas and retails paying a pretty penny for retail space are thinking YOU are a smart cookie— because you have very little overhead and no employees. Just like most things in life, the grass is always greener on the other side. As for building your solo practice, here are must-do marketing actions to take to bring new clients.

1. Get a marketing plan. If you are a rabid Friends fan like me, you might remember the first season episode when Phoebe laments “Get a plan?! I don’t even have a pluh.” And while it may seem overwhelming to create one, it is can actually make your life easier once you have one. The beauty of a marketing plan is that you know what you are going to spend, do (and NOT do) for marketing month by month. If you don’t know where to start, drop me a note or call me. With a few phone calls and emails, I’ll get to know your goals, budget, background and help you craft a plan that will put you in control.

2. Set up a client contact system. This can be paper-based or using a client database on your computer. The goal here is to remind you to reach out to clients you have seen before. Some occasions to do this are:

*Two days post treatment to see if they have any questions. Inquire about how they feel about their skin (any flare-ups?), their neck/back/etc. that they mentioned prior to their massage or if they have any styling questions about their new cut.

*Birthdays. You may be the only person to send them a card!

*If you have seen them in six weeks – or whatever would be your recommended interval for the next service.

*Three weeks after purchasing a product – do they need more?

*Client anniversary thank you – every year they have been a client, send them a little thank you note. Hand written cards are so very special these days, but email greeting cards are just as effective as getting the point across that you appreciate their loyalty.

You can see that tracking client activities and creating a system to remind you of these things is essential.

3. Reward for referrals. Review my No Cost Referrals tips and create a system that works for you. Building your business by word of mouth is the most inexpensive marketing around… don’t be afraid to be generous to clients you refer you. A $25 Starbucks card for one client can save you from a $800 newspaper ad that brings in the same number of new clients (you got… just one.) No need for a fancy points system… your business cards (yes you need ’em) will do the trick. Give your clients extras when they book an appointment and list on your cards: “I build my business through referrals and would be delighted to help your friends or relatives.”

4. Leverage the Internet. Having a website is, in my humble opinion, absolutely critical for any business. Use lower cost hosted solutions like Inspirational Web Hosting or SpaBoom – businesses that understand yours and provide low cost and easy to use solutions. On your site, be sure to collect emails and allow instant gift certificate purchase. Online sales is a nice perk, but not for everyone because you have to then ship out products very quickly after receiving the online order. If you are in a treatment room all day, this might be cause a delay… just be careful to correctly set customer expectations.

While there are several more marketing activities I’d recommend like a professional logo, or printing a brochure, there are also things you should not waste money on. Avoid advertisements and direct mail. The cost will most certainly outweigh the benefit you’d receive as a single practitioner.

Be sure to track your marketing pennies well. It is important to be conscious about how much (and where) you are spending your marketing dollars so you can decide whether to continue or not.

Editing – The Most Important Step in the Writing Process

Whether you’re writing an essay, a book, a marketing brochure or website content, the most important step of the writing process isn’t in the planning of what you’re going to write, and it’s not in the choice of tone, style or language; the most important step is in fact the editing. As a writer therefore it’s important to appreciate the significance of the editing process and to some extent be able to edit your own work.

The editing process is a systematic way to get the best out of your writing; it involves recognising weaknesses in your use of language, plot, characterisation, dialogue etcetera, as well as identifying the strong areas and realising themes that can be expanded. The editing process should also include the basic proofreading elements of checking for spelling mistakes and grammar errors.

It is often difficult for a writer to edit their own work well as the more time they spend on their writing the closer they become to it. An editor requires a certain amount of distance from the work they are editing to ensure they can get the best from the text they are working on. It is often the case that a fresh pair of eyes will quickly pick up inconsistencies or errors that the writer has missed, because the writer knows what they are expecting to read and their mind generally fills in the blanks or skims over the mistakes. This is why using a professional copy editor is often preferable to trying to edit yourself. This doesn’t however mean that a writer cannot be involved in the editing process; in fact it is often better if the process is a joint effort between writer and editor, allowing for the editor to make suggestions or prompt the writer to think of alternative ways to convey their message. The writer can subsequently develop their own work, in their own style as a result of the editor’s comments.

Many writers find that although their first draft of a manuscript, poem or essay, holds all of the basic elements that they which to express in their work, it may be many edits down the line before they are finally happy with the finished result. This is not a reflection of the writer’s natural ability or technical skill, indeed a good writer is one who is willing to edit, edit and edit again; this commitment to a project will pay dividends in the end, causing a writer to produce work that far surpasses the efforts of a first draft.

A Critical, Third Party Review of MLM Trainer Eric Worre

A Background on Eric Worre:

I first got a chance to meet Eric Worre in my first successful experience in MLM. Eric was one of the ‘Big Three’ leaders in the company I was involved with him in.

Mr. Worre is a unique person, to put it mildly, and always was an interesting person to be in business with. On the stage of major conventions, Eric tends to ask questions an listen more than he speaks. He plays the part of a celebrity interviewer, asking questions to clarify points that allow the finer points of Network Marketing success to come through in a way that otherwise would remain in darkness.

Eric Worre is a FANTASTIC leader, and I encourage you to get familiar with his training as much as you can.

So how does Eric Worre build his business?

Eric follows a traditional, word of mouth business model, and he reduces his training down to the simplest possible steps for his team. It’s hard to actually get Mr. Worre to train on anything other than 3 way calls, home meetings, and weekly events.

He won’t do it. In fact, I don’t know if he would remember this, but I heard him talking one day about how he keeps things ridiculously simple, and so I was around him later that day at a training convention, and I questioned him, attempting my best to get him to be complicated. He simply wouldn’t do it.

Eric will drill again and again ‘keep it simple’. Before I met him, I came from a long list of uplines and teams that seemed to try and build a business in the most complicated way they possibly could. (Which was horribly frustrating, because I didn’t know what I was doing)..

So are Eric’s business building techniques effective for all people?

Eric is one that freely admits that they simply do not. If you take a look at the facts over the last 60 years of MLM, it’s clear to most leaders that all training doesn’t work for everybody. Simply put – there are thousands of various ways to build a MLM business that are effective for different kinds of personalities.

Eric’s system gave me my first success in MLM, getting me over the initial hump of making more than a few thousand dollars a month – and I did it the traditional way through meetings, super saturdays, etc.

If I’m honest, though, it was hard for most people to learn and use Eric’s system. We were all a bunch of broke 25 year old college dropouts, and although I had a fairly large group (over 1000 people), that system simply doesn’t work well at all for my previous peer group. Quite simply, if I ever wanted to get my income over $5,000 a month in Eric’s group, I would have had to join the Chamber Of Commerce, go to Church 3X a week, maybe join The Rotary Club, and any other social group I could get involved with where I could meet people who had a larger sphere of influence than my own.

Also, I discovered after a time that I simply don’t enjoy spending all of my free time at meetings, on conference calls, and prospecting strangers. While I love to speak, the pressure in that group to do meetings every week and fill a huge room of people was enormous. I wanted a better way to do things, plain and simple (that I actually enjoyed).

So should you just forget anything that Eric’s ever said? Just so you know – Eric’s system was the first way I made money in Network Marketing. I simply will not be content with a measly five grand a month, however, and so I began searching for a more powerful, streamlined business system

…then I found cyperspace. It took some effort, training, and practice, but I learned how to promote myself online. Not only is it way more fun than all of that stuff I used to do, it works WAY better as well.

It was an empowering transformation (as you can imagine) when I started having people call me up, begging me to get involved in my business.

Simply put, does Eric Worre’s training work? Yes – But you know what? I would never, ever build a business in that way again. Simply put, I don’t care how much money that way would make me. After a time, I found out that it is just way more fun to market and promote yourself in a way that is attractive, fun, and empowering – sponsoring people who WANT to know what you do for a living..

I would not have it be any other way.

However, I’ve experienced the exact opposite. My income grew by five times in my first six months of online promotion.Today I consistently bring in 20-50 reps per month into my opportunity, and they are all REQUESTING to join.

Selling Catering and Event Services by Phone – Converting Inquiries Into Sales

Phone Skills That Book More Events

I got this question from a new marketing client of mine who founded of a new catering and event company after years of working for someone else.

I’m finally getting leads from the website! This week I got more job inquiries than I ever did before. Now my problem is selling them once they call me. How do you handle an incoming call from a prospective client who is thinking about hiring you? Thanks, L.T.   Here are a few tips I passed on to L.T. He reported back that he’s much more relaxed and so far he’s booked a $9,000 job using these ideas. I hope you have the same luck!

First and foremost you want to build rapport quickly. You want the caller to get a good feeling about you and your business. No, this isn’t about “brown-nosing” or “sucking up” or “schmoozing.” It’s about attitude.

Some thoughts to consider before you pick up that phone ….

Attitude of Gratitude. Be happy that somebody is giving you the opportunity to serve them in a way that allows you to use your gifts and talents and make a profit. Don’t act grateful … BE grateful.

Attitude of Service. Be ready to help the caller in whatever way you can – even if that means sending the caller to your competition.

Attitude of Enthusiasm. When I coached L.T. we recorded some of his phone conversations (you can record your side of the call without getting permission) and he was shocked. He was trying to sound like a “business professional.” He sounded as enthusiastic as a Department of Motor Vehicles employee on a Friday afternoon.

Unless you only cater at funerals and bankruptcy hearings most customers are enthusiastic about the event they’re planning. They want to deal with a relaxed, confident and happy event professional.

The Most Important Person in the World.

Dale Carnegie taught us to “Make other people feel important – and do it sincerely.” How do you do that? Ask questions that you really want the answers to and listen carefully to the answers. When was the last time you spoke to someone who really cared about your opinion? Didn’t that make you feel great? Really try to understand what the client is saying – so few people do.

Care. Don’t ask about a client’s fishing trophy if you really don’t care. That’s cheap, insincere and transparent. My style of selling is strictly business – I don’t talk about sports, the weather or how nice your tie is. When I meet you as a prospective client I always get right down to business – not my business – your business.

Prepare. I go into every meeting prepared – I don’t ask questions that a professional should already know. If I’m trying to get a trade show account I know everything I can about the industry, the company, competition and their latest products. If I’m pursuing a sales incentive meeting I know the names and territories of the Sales Managers, the size of the sales force and the demographics of the attendees before I approach the buyer. Knowing what you’re talking about goes much further than unctuous glad-handing.

How do you prepare for an unexpected telephone inquiry? Stop winging it!

Intake Form. Type up an intake form to capture all the information you’ll need … and include questions that your competition isn’t asking.

High Value Questions. Make a list of smart questions that increase your understanding and improve your professional image. List questions that make the client say, “Wow, I’m so glad you asked me that – I didn’t think of that!”

Major Sales Tip! Always ask the caller if they’ve ever hired or experienced a service like yours before. Then ask, “What did you like about it?” and “What didn’t you like about it.” Get the answers to these two questions and your callers will have told you exactly how to sell to them.

When L.T. asked a client what she didn’t like about a previous caterer, the client said she didn’t like the servers – they didn’t look professional. L.T. emailed over photos and testimonials about of his wait staff . He got the job!

Objections. Start keeping track of all the objections you get on the phone … and then prepare a presentation that preempts them. The best way to handle an objection is to structure your presentation so that they never become an issue – but be careful about preventing clients from voicing their legitimate concerns.

L.T. thought that by saying to callers, “Our prices aren’t cheap – because we don’t do cheap work and our clients only want the best,” eliminated the price objection. It didn’t – it made the caller feel too embarrassed from sharing price concerns – and made L.T. sound like a jerk!

Sales Script. No, you never want to read a sales script to a caller and end up sounding like a phony telemarketer … but you do want to make sure you give the caller a great sounding presentation.

Here’s how to write a great telephone sales script: Don’t write it – speak it.

Record and transcribe yourself talking to clients. Listen to your recording with a colleague or coach and pick out the parts you feel do a great job selling your services. Transcribe those phrases – exactly as you spoke them – and create your “pitch.” It will sound like you – but your best you!

The Slight Edge – The Story of the Water Hyacinth and How it Applies to Running a Business

A child’s favourite word is story. In fact the same could be true of everyone. We all love to listen to a story or to tell a story. In the book, The Slight Edge, the author Jeff Olson often uses stories as analogies to deeper meanings.

The Slight Edge, as the name would suggest, suggests that to be successful, you just need to have a slight edge in a number of different aspects of your life.

In this article, I will aim to mirror the analogy created by Jeff Olson to Starting a Business for yourself, or even running your existing business. We run both online and offline business. We have experienced failure and success and as a result, can relate very well to the author.

In this particular story, the author tells about a Water Hyacinth and how it can grow exponentially in a relatively short period of time but not by all its own efforts.

It would be a brilliant way to demonstrate how a typical MLM business owner could explain the potential growth in an area.

The lesson that I took from the book, in relation to starting a business was that you must be prepared to persevere and with this you simply will not experience the joy and rewards that success brings.

Every person that starts a business wants to be successful. But are they prepared to crank the pump and put massive effort in to the business until it start to grow exponentially.

In the case of the water hyacinth, the plant uses the art of leverage to grow each day. Instead of planting its own seeds and waiting, it sends out its own daughter tentacles which enable it to use leverage. Ever more with ever less. It’s the key to business Success.

Look at McDonalds restaurants – by using a system for running a restaurant which covers every aspect of the business, they could leverage it and grow it quickly without ever losing consistency or quality. It is often said that a 17 year old could run a McDonalds for you – the same one that will not tidy up their bedroom.

If you are thinking about starting a business, either offline or online, think leverage before you think “I’m the only person that can do this”.

By thinking this way, you will give yourself room to grow and develop beyond your own capabilities and will reap the reward.

Format and Function – Tips on How to Write a Sales Letter

At one time during your marketing career, you may have been tasked to write a sales letter. You might have thought it unnecessary, even useless. After all, a little email will usually do the trick in convincing potential buyers to get your goods, right? And if you can’t write to them, you can always run over to their houses and offices, bring in the oh-so-presentable you, and blab away about why your service is the best in the West, right?

Sadly, letter writing is never out of fashion, and your instinct are just plain wrong. You will need to write a sales letter to get to ask many people as possible. You will need to write a sales letter to get that housewife to buy your set of plastic cutlery, or that football coach to buy custom-made towels for his team, or that CEO to grab that hotel membership to his favorite five-star resort. Respect and formality are still in.

A good sales letter needs to be terse, brief, succinct, but full of information about the product or service that you are selling. Many good sales letters take no more than a page or a page and a half to tell their story: within the first few words, they grab the reader; in the next few paragraphs, they can convince the most miserly recipients to shell out cash for a product or service. A good sales letter is also eager without being overbearing, and respectful without being stiff.

A good sales letter is admittedly, very difficult to write. It can be hard to tone down a hard selling tune, but likewise hard to keep oneself from being boring. If you are tasked to write a sales letter, you might want to take note of the following tips as you put pen to paper, or fingers to keyboard.

– Format is important. As with any other letter, a sales letter begins with the name and address of the sender, then the name and address of the recipient. After a formal address, the letter has a body, which contains, in order, an opening salutation, creation of a need, a sales pitch, information on how the product or service can be purchased, and a closing salutation. The letter is then signed by the sender.

Follow this format, as it can give your recipients an easier time understanding the letter and your goals. An organized letter, moreover, speaks well about your own sense of organization, and even the integrity of your company.

– Always start on a personal note, and avoid using the generic address “To whom it may concern,” or “To Mr. or Ms.” but without a name. Your potential buyers need to know that you care about them, and this knowledge begins by recognizing that you addressed them by name. In sales letter-writing, small details are key.

– Make your pitch in two hundred words or less. If you make a short pitch, you may appear as though you do not believe in your product. If you make a very long one, you might not be believable at all. Strike the balance with a medium-sized pitch that resonates with readers. Remember, you have to create a need for your product or service first before you can begin selling it.

– Do not compare your product or service with those of other companies’. This can be tempting, especially when a free market encourages stiff competition amongst competitors with like products and services. However, this can also speak ill of your company, especially if you do not have a name yet. Make your product’s or service’s qualities speak for themselves.

– Watch your grammar and spelling! Nothing can turn off readers more than a poorly constructed, badly written letter. If you cannot take care of your own writing style, you might not appear qualified to take care of potential buyers either. Always have a book of style next to you when you compose the letter. If you have time, show the sales letter to your writer or editor friends. They can give you tips on how to improve your writing, and you can practice your sales pitches on them as well!

– Sign the letter personally. A personal touch always makes you look good, and can soften your potential buyers’ hearts toward you.

If you want to write a sales letter, then you need to practice often, and believe in your product or service. As in any letter, or any product of the written word, passion shows clearly.

Does Stephen Hobbs’ Lazy Way to Buy and Sell Cars Really Work?

When the economic climate is in a state of recession and unemployment is rising, it only makes sense to starting looking for an at home business. If you have your own business, you don’t have to depend upon having an employer to earn money. You can be your own boss and set your own hours.

And one business that is not going away anytime soon is the used car business. People have been making money buying and selling cars ever since the automobile was invented. The used car business is a ready made market with plenty of demand for low cost, reliable transportation. In today’s modern society, transportation is a must, no matter how you look at it. People need transportation. This means there’s always going to be an in-demand market for cars. And having a business where there is a definite market is the first thing you look for when considering running your own business.

One way to earn money selling used cars is outlined in Stephen Hobbs’ e-book The Lazy Way to Buy and Sell Cars for Profit. But, does his method of marketing really work? How difficult is it to buy and sell cars for profit? Do you need a license, and can you do this out of your home?

The answer to these questions – and many more – are all contained in Stephen’s e-book. In the book Stephen sets out to destroy some of the myths around this business that has kept others from even attempting it. You can set up a profitable home-based business without having to obtain a dealer’s license.

“You don’t need to get a car dealers license unless you want to and getting one suits what you want to do with this,” Stephen points out. He suggests that you start out small. And he reveals a completely legal way for you to buy and sell cars for profit while retaining all the advantages of having a car dealers license, yet without any of the disadvantages. It’s all up to you how you want to work it.

Once you know how to deal with sellers of used cars, you can get the price you want. Stephen’s book teaches you the secrets of negotiation. He also teaches you which cars to look for in the cars you buy and which to leave on a sellers lot. Armed with this knowledge, you will soon become an expert on what cars are in demand and will sell for a premium profit, and what cars to stay away from. Having this knowledge is key to becoming successful in this business.

If you are looking for a business that you can be up and running with in a relatively short time period, buying and selling cars is something you will want to seriously consider. With over 150 pages of no-fluff realistic content, Stephen’s book will help shorten the time frame between buying your first used car and closing a sale with a ready-made buyer. You will soon learn what others have already learned, that “consistent demand makes this the perfect recession proof business.”
