Get It Girl: Get Paid. Get Clear. Get Unstuck. Get Back on track.

I’ve got one thing to say to you this week, “You Betta Go Get It Girl!” Stop all this foolishness. Stop being so far up in your feelings that you can’t see it’s time to do like the Mary, Mary songs says, “Go Get Your Blessings!”

This is a BIG one especially if you have been feeling stuck, frustrated and seriously off course in your business and with respect to your life goals.

Today let’s focus on creating your Get It Girl 30 Day Roadmap to clarity, profits, productivity, and success.

First dive into the quick clip video (above) on the first of three steps to Get Back On Track Quick Click for Busy Women Entrepreneurs. This is actually a 6min excerpt of last week’s Get It Girl Success Call (listen to the full audio replay below).

Today I want to provide you with solutions around 4 common areas that many women entrepreneurs struggle with.

Getting Clear.
Clarity for me is all about setting the right blog and business goals. When I say right, I mean practical projects you can start and finish monthly that will help you work towards your goals. Are you feeling fuzzy about what you need to do right now? I’d like to share my recommendations with you via the Get It Girl, audio session below.

Getting Paid.
In order to have a sustainable business, you have to know how to consistently produce offers, close deals, retain clients, bring in steady sales and generate revenue on a regular basis. Have you found your sales sweet spot or are you still trying to figure out how to get paid online? Let’s talk about 3 essential types of money you should be bringing into your business via the Get It Girl, audio session below.

Getting Unstuck.
Movement is essential. Every day you should be working on ways to expand your brand along with smart revenue generating activities. Feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, discouraged or in a constant state of analysis-paralysis can really slow you down. Are you looking for real ways to move forward? Let’s talk about the savvy solutions I use to get unstuck via the Get It Girl, audio session below.

Getting Back on Track.
Life Happens; ish Happens… we all know how that goes. The trick is to not fall so far off course that you can’t find your way back. I’d like to share how you can bounce back from any challenge, based on my personal lessons learned. Let’s talk about three ways to restart your commitment to your goals, getting what you want, and feeling accomplished by finally started or completing the priority projects on your list.

Here is another quick audio click on how to Get Clear by starting with setting clear blog and business goals for yourself each month.

You Can Run Your Day or Let Your Day Run You.

Oprah once said, “Nothing about my life is lucky, nothing. A lot of grace, a lot of blessings, a lot of divine order, but I don’t believe in luck. For me luck is preparation meeting the moment of opportunity.

There is no luck without you being prepared for that moment of opportunity. … I had been prepared in ways that I didn’t even know I was being prepared for. … Every single thing that has happened in your life is preparing you for the moment that is to come.”

Have you watched any of the videos I’ve shared inside the Facebook group lately? Like these four on negative people, patience, perspective and powerful shifts about to happen in your life.

Fire Starter Circle Monthly Mastermind for Women in Business

We all have gifts to share with the world. As a true web tech girl, over the years I have developed a few talents; from creating online courses and information products to online marketing and sales. These are a few of the talents I would like to share with you inside the SistaSense Fire Starter Circle Monthly Mastermind.

Your online business success depends on your ability to take that big vision and break it down into small action steps that you can complete every day, every week, every month, every year. This is my approach to staying productive, sustaining my business, and getting things done.

A few years back I started the Fire Starter Circle Mastermind in the hopes that I could share my process with you. After about 2 years of hosting at least one mastermind every quarter, I have decided to start a Fire Starter Circle Monthly Mastermind (full details here).

With Fire Starter Circle Monthly, instead of my previous 6-week masterminds – I will present a monthly project for us to work on as a group as a way to help you maintain your momentum on a regular basis.

Video has long since been an integral part of effective online business marketing, but these days its an even bigger deal! Especially using video on platforms like Facebook, Instagram,and WordPress. Video Marketing is the first topic we cover for our kick-off session this Tuesday, 8/16. Plus my goal is to help you accomplish your blogging goals, while showing you how to set and track your revenue and reach goals each month.

In addition to bi-weekly virtual sessions, Fire Starter Circle perks include online courses and a pass to the Back to Business Annual Webinar Conference in October.

How to Tackle Comment Spam in WordPress and Delete All Comments

Is your WordPress website getting hundreds, if not thousands of spam comments? One of my Fire Starter Circle mentees is having this problem so she sent me the following question, “How can I get rid of more than 5000 spam comments?” In the quick video above, I explain how I quickly bulk delete comments on my wordpress blog. I also recommended the Math Quiz plugin, which requires anyone who leaves a comment to solve a math problem as a smart way to prevent entries from spam robots.

If you have thousands of spam comments, use the Delete All Comments plugin to remove them quickly. And for more recommendations here is a great post for you to read: 12 Vital Tips and Tools to Combat Comment Spam in WordPress.

Sales Rule #3 for Woman Entrepreneurs: Content is King, but Consistency is Queen

SistaSense Sales Rules for Women In Business (1)

The words ‘sales’ and ‘selling’ are two of the nastiest words for most of the women entrepreneurs that I know. Those who struggle with saying these words all too often struggle with generating sales as well. They tell me these words make them feel ‘dirty’ and sometimes even ‘sleezy’. They tell me they don’t want to come off as ‘pushy’ or ‘money hungry’. They try to convince me, or rather themselves that they are happy just focusing on ‘putting stuff out there’ in the hopes that eventually the money will follow, but it almost never does. If you are like them, let’s take a minute to talk about what’s really hurting your sales, why more people aren’t buying your stuff and how you can fix this major problem that many women entrepreneurs face.

For my fellow online entrepreneurs who want to make sales, but hate selling I have a rule for you today that I want you to take note of and take to heart.

Sales Rule #3: Content is King, but Consistency is Queen

Just about every online entrepreneur knows that content is king, but few truly understand why consistency is queen. After writing the initial content for their website, a handful of introductory blog posts and producing that token ‘free report’ opt-in offer, the average webpreneur seldom generates as much content as he or she should even though they know quality content helps to build visibility and credibility online. Most will tell you they hate to write, don’t do social media, can’t find the time to post or lack the funds to pay someone else to do it for them. Whatever their (or possibly your) excuse may be, lack of consistent content is a major contributing factor to their (and possibly your) lack of sales.

The proof behind the statement “Content is King, but Consistency is Queen” can be found in one of my favorite old-school marketing adages. It’s all about the Rule of Seven, which says the average consumer needs to see or hear your marketing message at least seven times before they take action and buy from you. Unless your have mastered the art of closing deals on the first try or can prove that you are backed by someone most of your prospects know, like and trust, most people are not going to buy from you on the first or even the second encounter. This is especially worth noting, for those entrepreneurs who stop marketing after the first or second try. Think about how much information you are exposed to on a daily basis. How many things do you glance at each hour and never think to give a second thought except for those things that you repeatedly see on a consistent basis. Hold that thought while you consider the fact that your potential customers are being bombarded by as much information as you are, which means you have to consistently capture their attention over time. Consistent content distribution is the key to building relationships and making the kind of real connections that motivate people to try and/or buy your offers.

If you are not consistently creating content to capture the attention of new people while keeping your previous customers in the loop, you are going to forever business to those competitors who understand the value of consistency. While I strongly believe that conversion marketing matters most, there is merit to Seth Godin’s statement, “Content marketing is the only marketing left.” Nine out of ten serious online entrepreneurs are using some form of content marketing to attract clients, which means you’ve got to have a solid system to bringing people in if you want to eventually convince them to pay out.

Like the Evil Queen we all love to hate, consistent content creation is one of those areas that cause most entrepreneurs a great deal of pain. If you don’t have the capital, time or the self discipline to develop a weekly content creation schedule, I highly recommend trying a little technique that I like to call ‘Bulk tasking’. Over the course of three hours or sometimes three days I challenge myself to produce as much audio, visual and written content as I can; focusing on the topics my ideal clients are interested in and the offers that I desire to sell. Once produced I then auto-schedule out the new content via my blog, email and social media. This activity helps to simulate consistency. Content is king, consistency is queen and automation is the glue I use to hold it all together.


Think about your favorite companies and small business owners, how often are you getting information from them? Chances are they communicate with you on a weekly if not daily basis, right? You should be communicating with your audience at similar frequencies. If you really want to stay on people’s radar and create the kind engagement and responsiveness that translate into sales, this is what it takes. Building a tribe of loyal fans and followers via content marketing is one of the most effective ways to generate a steady influx of sales.

Do you want to supercharge your blog and business skills – click here to learn more about my 100 Days of Blog Posts Challenge – and I will show you how to bulk task / schedule months worth of blog content to help you consistently attract traffic and potential sales to your website.

Website Design Inspiration for Coaches, Mentors, and Service Professionals

gailkallen

As a web designer, my job is never boring! Every week I have a different new project to work on. As I look back on some of my favorite projects, this website for coach Gail K Allen, is one of my favorites.

For this project I redesigned her website to create a brighter look and feel. One of Gail’s top objectives was to showcase her products, services and optin offer at the top of the home page, which I was able to achieve with this design. I also worked on integrating an eCommerce store with custom graphic images that show case her products, work book and private consultation services.

Startup Success: Steve Harvey Asks Who’s On Your Wagon?

Today Steve Harvey is asking you a simple, powerful question, “Who’s On Your Wagon.” In his book, Act Like a Success, Think Like a Success, Steve shares a lesson he learned from the late Butch Lewis. “When you are a person who is success-minded, you have a wagon that you are pulling uphill,” he says. “You are totally responsible for your wagon. You are the only one on rope.”

 

Steve explains what kind of people to keep around to help with your wagon—and whom you should cut loose.
