So this weekend I spent a bunch of time getting my craft supplies in order and because that area is actually my work desk area during the week, I also had to go through a bunch of work papers that I needed to look at too! Some things really came to mind as I was going through this process and I thought I would write them down for the next time you have to organize your desk.
If you are thinking about selling online, I am sure that you have considered multiple ecommerce solutions (I know I did!) but today we are going to talk about two that I use…Etsy and Shopify.
While I do have a shop that sells physical goods on Etsy, I only sell digital products on my Shopify site so I will stick to just talking digital today!
If you are a speaker (like me) and want to get more speaking events, this is the post for you! Today we will cover a bunch of different speaker marketing topics and have a little resource at the end!
You would be amazed how many people I talk to who say they are speakers but who never actually speak. I am not sure if they are just unsure of what to do to get started or have fear that they won’t be good enough or maybe just don’t have a plan for their speaking, but that all ends today!
Picking your SEO keywords is the most important thing you can do for your website. Pick right and you will get a flood of targeted traffic, pick wrong and you will get a flood of bad traffic, or worse….just crickets. That’s right, you could put up a site (or redo your current one) and no one will come.

Yesterday I was talking with an agent about setting up her website and as we got talking she said that her goal was to serve the local college professors, the incoming faculty and visiting speakers. She lives in a college town and while she isn’t necessarily doing that kind of business now, her dream real estate career would be to do that kind of work.
Back in the day when I was a baby real estate marketer (before I spent two years as a Realtor myself) I worked for a lady, who is still working well into her 80’s who was super focused. She had targeted 4 condo buildings in a country club community and had mailed, visited, given parties for and basically stalked for years. She WAS the Realtor for those four buildings and had the database to prove it.

There are many reasons to find out who your competition is online for your small business marketing efforts including...

Whoo whoo! You have decided to start doing speaker marketing and start getting some gigs...Yay you!
Unless you are a super professional speaker for a living, you are probably like me and speaking 4-6 times per month, sometimes in person, sometimes on podcasts and occasionally at big events that you have to travel to.
Author Marketing can be a scary place. Where do you start with all the different marketing ideas out there? Should you be doing Facebook or making YouTubes? Would it pay to set up an Instagram account or should you build up your email list? Start a blog? Do a podcast?…arggg!!!

With this kind of marketing you are not as concerned with the outcome of what you are doing as you are with completing goals you can control.

I have spent the last 15 years trying to find a calendar that would do all the things that I need to do for my business. I tried academic calendars and Time Runners, Day Timers and pretty calendars but nothing ever seemed to stick.
Then about 6 months ago I got serious about managing my business and my time. I realized that sticky notes and to do lists would not cut it if I wanted to have a successful and peaceful business without everything falling through the cracks.
