TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 777 – Why You Need to Put YOU First!

Quote: “Work harder on yourself, than you do on your job.” JRohn

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

 

What good are you if you are sick?  Not good at all.

This is one thing that is the hardest thing to understand!  I watched a “live” yesterday – and the gal sells a bunch of stuff.  She’s an entrepreneur, and a darn good one.

She was selling things… and sniffling.  AND she said, “I don’t have any PTO”.

Today – I was listening to a different business group and one gal said, “I’ve started eating healthy and exercising regularly” — this was in response to her report on “what have you done this week?” question.

It’s true though, today’s quote is to inspire you to consider your health and YOU.  You deserve it — today… work harder on yourself than you do on your job!

Your tribe needs you at your best!  UMMMMMM YOU Need YOU at your best!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 691 – It’s Proprietary

Quote: “Don’t reinvent the wheel focus on winning one customer at a time” RSpector

Thursday: Infinity Customer

 

“I want to increase sales”  Do you feel like this?  You want to increase sales…?

YES, in business you want to make more money and this is done by increasing sales… so how do you do this?

Today I got a phone call from a telemarketer telling me how she’d love to sit down with me to discuss how to relist my website on Google so it can see all of the services I offer so people don’t miss out on what we sell.

You know what I did?

I said I’m not interested.  I don’t even use the internet for finding customers — OK that was a little bit of a stretch, but I wanted to get of the phone.  So she said, “what do you do?” My answer, “it’s proprietary”

Tired doesn’t even begin to describe how annoyed I am by these types of calls.  Here’s what comes next… you meet with the person and they say all the right things, and next you know you’re signing up for a monthly service of $500.

OK, so you know what I did?  Opened my email program and sent out an email and generated one sale for $3,000.

Don’t reinvent the wheel!  Win one customer at a time… I love the concept of this quote.

The reason I could generate one sale today was because of the email and constant communication I have with the customers on my list.

You don’t need to put an ad and continually try to find “new” customers — capture customers and engage them.  Become an expert and SPOIL them with information, fun, and a sense of belonging.  Make them part of your tribe!

When they like you there will come a point that you can send out an email and generate a $3,000 sale, too!

It’s that simple.  Create a list, talk to the list, find products the list needs!

But here’s the deal… it’s simple but not easy. This will take work.

However, if you want results this one customer at a time process works… if you don’t want to put in effort – you better chat with that woman I talked to on the phone today!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 675 – An Emotional Drive

Saturday:  Try This!

 

Earlier this week I talked about emotional words and yesterday I talked about putting your customer into your post… then I came across a photo I took earlier this spring.

WOW

Renting a car is kind of a mundane event.  When you travel you need to have ground transportation.  And it’s pretty easy to substitute the businesses that provide car rental…

Look what this one did to help you use the product – they used emotional words to help paint the picture of the emotion of their rental cars.

They don’t say convertible, 4 wheel drive, automatic transmission… it says scenic, fun, and family.

This is something you can do… maybe not on a wall as your back drop – but what about on your website or brochure?

Use the opportunity to share the words of the emotion of your product!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 656 – One Easy Way to Increase Your Sales

Quote: “The way you dress is an expression of your personality.”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

Here’s a great “small change” idea… dress for success!

It works for your personal appearance, so why wouldn’t it work with your products?  Well, it does!

When you take a little extra time to “spruce” up your appearance you will make more money!  The packaging is your silent salesperson… but that doesn’t mean they need to stay quiet.

Take a second look at your products and determine what you can do to give them a face lift.

I love the way this necklace looks!  It’s a neat piece of jewelry but it’s enhanced by the thoughtful packaging.

If you were shopping for a gift, especially someone with a May birthday, the necklace is nice, but the card it’s attached to makes you WANT to give this as a gift.

Start to view your packaging as the way you “dress” your products.  This also applies to your photos… update and express your style by telling stories with your photos!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 595 – Your Emergency Plan to Making Money

Quote: “Your mindset is the key to unlock your transformation.”

Friday: Big Money Small Change

 

There is one thing that has always surprised me… that’s when people are excited to have a “snow day”. Sure it’s fun to have time off.

But I’m speaking of “snow days” from school. OR you’re excited when the teacher lets you out early.

This baffles me.

You spend money for a class and then are thrilled when you don’t have to go! What kind of mindset is that? Its like paying for a dinner and being thrilled when they don’t bring dessert that you paid for… or you ordered a large popcorn and got a small.

You paid for it, you should be excited to get the full thing.

OK, enough of my rant, but I saw this post and thought to myself…

FINALLY SOMEONE THAT UNDERSTANDS IT.

 

Start looking at snow days as your time to get ahead! It’s like a catch up day or even a day you can work on the creative things you’ve been putting off. But it’s a great time, not to lay around and binge on Netflix… but you can make more money!

Look at the post. They are closed YET they thought ahead and said, let’s use this snow (lemon) and make lemonade snow (not yellow snow, that’s gross… but I knew you were thinking it!) haha

Alright, but look at the possibilities.

Many other people are taking their snow day to hang out, stuck with down time, and you know down time is occupied by surfing time… so why not go a step further and have your snow-day file! Come up with a GOOD promotion, like a BIG discount on crap you want to get rid of and clearance it out… shoot out an email to your list, put the post up, take out an ad and run a flash sale.

If it’s snowing where you are but your customer is in the sun… it’s OK. Maybe they’ll feel bad for you.

PS: I’ve got a whole weekend of potential snow days so I’ll try this and let you know what happens!

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #557 – Don’t Quit… Tweak!

Quote: “Your Dream Doesn’t Have An Expiration Date.” KTWitten

Wednesday: Midweek Motivation

How’s your goal? Sounds a little funny.

But it’s real!

We talk about the weather… but rarely our goals!  And today is January 9th… 9 days after the “big” day for goal setting occurs.   HA! Do you remember your resolution, quite possibly it’s been forgotten.  If you’re still doing it, well… keep going!

Here’s my point.  Keep going.  If you feel like your dream is taking longer than it should maybe you need a little reality check.

Uh Oh, a reality check, what does that mean? It means maybe you don’t have the skill, talent, or people surrounding you that you need to succeed.  It’s not that the goal is unattainable, its just you need to stop and switch gears.

For example, if you want to lose weight, but it’s not working… maybe you need a trainer or a doctor.  You may need to surround yourself with people that don’t eat double chocolate cupcakes.

What I’m saying is… set the goal, make your mini-goals, and keep going.  Just remember that all of your care in working toward your goal just might need a little gear switch.  Don’t stop – just adjust.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode #553 – Work on Increasing Value

”Price is what you pay. Value is what you get.” Warren Buffett

Friday: Big Money Small Change

What is value?  Think of a time you received a great deal, was it the price or was it the feeling you had from purchasing.

I was listening to one of my favorite books (again) today, The Science of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles.  This is always a good book to “check-in” with, and I do every couple months.  And I reached this important reminder…

You must provide more use value than cash value received.

Let’s break it down.

Use value that’s what you “get out” or benefit from the product.  And cash value is what you pay.  Think about a book.  There’s paper bound together with ink on the pages.  The cash value is the amount you pay, and often you are paying more than the price of the raw paper/ink.

The use value is what you get out of the book!  Let’s say you read the letters on the page and it creates an idea that bonds you with your family, or it makes you $2,000.  Your use value far surpasses the cash value you paid!

This is what you need to strive for in your business.  When you determine how to compete with value you will never compete with price again.  The reason is because your customers who are comparing business will choose yours because of your perceived value!

Look for ways to increase value and look for ways to market value.  At our marina we historically wrote a suggested work order on every boat in our winter storage program.  We just did it and would send out, unannounced.  Now we market this service. It’s a huge value to our customers and it has raised our “use value” in their eyes.
