Maintaining consistent revenue through #salesfunnels 
A lack of consistent revenues is 99% caused by a lack of consistent prospecting. A failure to prospect on a regular basis will inevitably result in irregular revenues. It's that simple.
Yes, prospecting can be a difficult and, for many people, even myself, a challenging task.

So what can you do to keep your sales funnel full, to ensure a consistent, reliable flow of revenues all year round?
Here are some Tips to help you ensure your sales funnel is consistently full of leads:
* Sell more products to existing customers. This can include selling additional quantities of the same product, selling add-on services or products from your existing portfolio, or introducing your existing customers to a new product/ services they might be interested in.
* Set a goal for the number of networking events you will attend each month, and the number of new people you'd like to meet at each event.
* Take a look at opt-in email lists. Set up a targeted email marketing campaign to acquaint potential new customers with your company or products, then follow up by phone.
* Ask your current customers for referrals. The key is to be as specific as possible, chances are your customer will know the person you can create business with, and will probably be happy to make the introduction.
* Make a habit of meeting/interacting with at least one new person each week. Share ideas, and give them any leads that might help them first.
* Write articles/ post tips (like I do weekly 😉) for relevant on-line your prospects might read. you can't beat the added credibility and visibility.
* Be excellent at what you do. Word travels fast, so do everything you can to make sure that all the talk about you is positive!
* Lastly, for a cost-effective way to keep your name in front of potential clients, try sending mailings to prospects, complete with relevant items of interest.

The key is to make prospecting a regular habit.

The DO’s and Don’t when using social media for your business:

If you're a small business owner, you are probably already active in social media. And if you're not active, I would guess that you're at least considering getting started with social media.
Whatever social media platform you are using, there are some things you should avoid doing if you want to grow your community and use your social media presence to form relationships.
Here are some things you should NOT 🙅🏽‍♀️do when using social media for business: [ ]
❌SKIP THE PLANNING 
So many business owners dive into social media because everyone tells them they should, but they skip the research and planning phase. it's important to take time to get to know the networks you are joining.
[ ]
❌MISLEAD
Social media can feel like a popularity game. It may be tempting but never a good idea, and can not only hurt your reputation, but it can also hurt your brand over the long term. [ ]
❌IGNORE OTHERS
Acting like you are the only person out there is a quick way to social media failure. [ ]
❌SHARE TOO MUCH
When you're using social media for business, letting a little of your personality show through is a great way to start conversations and form relationships. There's a thin line, though, between being engaging and sharing too much. [ ]
❌SELF-PROMOTE ALL THE TIME
Promoting yourself and your business is likely part of why you're on social media, to begin with, but these networks are vastly different from other marketing tools. Balance your self-promotion by promoting and helping others. 💯 
Keep in mind that there are a lot of different ways to use social media, avoiding these activities will get you moving on the right path.

The 4 P’s of Entrepreneurship/

Entrepreneurship teaches you a number of things about life, in general. It is an immensely satisfying journey. 
However, the journey is often very challenging and it takes a lot of patience, persistence and perseverance to succeed.
My advice to aspiring entrepreneurs is to not get taken up by stories of instant success. Those are rare
🔹Patience: Success is not overnight,Every entrepreneurial journey will have its ups and downs.
🔹Persistence, of all the obstacles and setbacks that come in your way, it’s important that you don’t take your eyes off your goal.
🔹Perseverance, Assess and review the progress continuously. Learn from your mistakes and use them as stepping-stones to success.
🔺Passion:  that’s why the 4th P – passion – is critical. Unless you have passion, the temptation to give up at the first signs of challenge is quite high.the moment you stop believing in your dream, so will others.

What sets the successful apart from the ones that gave up are the 3 Ps that I outlined above.
Set your goals high, believe in yourself and your purpose and go smash! ▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️

Successful Business Partnership:

Business partnerships take on a variety of forms. They may be a long term formal legal commitment or a simple short term venture to test a concept. The same principles apply in any cases.

the following strategies for partnership will help you start strong and stays strong. 
1️⃣Start by creating a shared Vision & Mission
Take time to discuss your company's Vision and Mission with your partners.

2️⃣Make sure each partner's needs and expectations are addressed
Find out what your partner expects from you in the partnership. Have a plan for when personal or business circumstances or interests change so, when needed, expectations can be readdressed.

3️⃣Identify and utilize the strengths of each partner
Bringing out and utilizing the strengths of the individuals within the partnership will add to the motivation, the energy and the odds of long-term success.

4️⃣Set company and individual goals
Review and update your company goals together with your partners. Then get each partner to set individual goals that support the company goals in their area of expertise. Put all these in writing and get each to commit to their goals. 
5️⃣Handle disagreements, disappointments and frustrations early.
Sometimes it's difficult to approach a partner, especially if it's a long standing relationship that has deteriorated. A regularly scheduled sit down together is definitely a good idea. It's always best to talk about what you'd like to see for the business and be positive.

6️⃣Define job roles for each partner, including accountability
Clearly define the tasks you will perform and have your partner do the same. The objective is to make sure all jobs are covered and accountability has been assigned and acknowledged.

💵Investing Strategies for Small Business Owners.

As a small business owner, you have to consider many aspects of investment that an individual investor may be able to overlook.
Small business owners by nature are entrepreneurs, and this type of personality often means that you are likely to take risks.
However, while risk-taking may be necessary when starting a company, investing in a risky manner can ultimately endanger the very thing you want to protect: YOUR BUSINESS. 
So before you do, make sure you cover the following: ◼️Setting up a safety net.
◼️Looking beyond your own business.
◼️Diversifying by industry & location.
◼️Focusing on preservation.
◼️Rounding & customizing out your portfolio.

While your business should provide you with all the income you need, engaging in practical and efficient investing strategies can help you breathe easier if that isn’t the case.

If you would like more information on how to invest effectively as a small business owner, DM me.

Is it time to DIVERSIFY YOUR BUSINESS?

Businesses diversify for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most basic of these is survival. 
By definition, a company that focuses on a narrow range of products/ services will only have access to a specific number of customers. Adding new products and service lines or starting new companies within a group can significantly enhance your ability to grow rapidly.

However, it’s important to pursue a strategy that is right for you and your company. -
Diversification is not just about survival. 
It’s a tried and trusted growth strategy. 
New products or business lines will enable you to make more sales to existing and new customers and (depending on how you diversify) expand into markets that would otherwise have been closed to you. -
There are many ways in which to diversify. The most straightforward of these is to provide a natural extension of the goods or services that you already offer to customers. 
Diversification can also take the form of brand extension across an apparently unconnected range of products or companies. -
Getting your timing right is important!
It’s probably unwise to rush into diversification, even if your survival depends on it.

But it can pay off. The key 🔑 is to plan carefully. Do your market research.
-With the right people (business consultant 🙋🏽‍♀️), business plan and structure in place, diversification can serve to supercharge growth

Is it time to DIVERSIFY YOUR BUSINESS? Businesses diversify for a number of reasons. Perhaps the most basic of these is survival. By definition, a company that focuses on a narrow range of products/ services will only have access to a specific number of customers. Adding new products and service lines or starting new companies within a group can significantly enhance your ability to grow rapidly.

Turning marketing into client development strategy:📣
It’s easy to become so consumed with the latest prospect that you ignore or neglect the existing client right in front of you. It happens, but its not going to help you in your quest for long-term, profitable client relationships. While you focus on lead generationand lead nurturing, don’t forget to nurture clients along the way

So while attracting new clients is obviously an important goal of your marketing and business development, nurturing and further developing existing clients should also be part of your ongoing efforts. 
Here are a few “client nurturing” ideas that could help your client development:
⏺Get out and talk to your clients/
It is important to keep checking the pulse on that relationship & also serve as an opportunity to gain valuable intel on your services. You will gain rich insights and strengths your relationship..
⏺Consider clients when developing your content strategy/
the end goal of your marketing is not to turn prospects into clients; the end goal is to turn prospects into promoters.So as you plan your content, consider the topics that would specifically be of interest to existing clients. Make the mission of your blog to be a destination, not just for new prospects and leads, but existing clients as well.
.⏺Host “clients only” webinars and events/
client appreciation events are also great for client development and provide a way to get in front of clients, while showing them some love along the way.- ⏺Brag about your clients on social media/
take the opportunity to brag on your clients (not brag on what you’ve done for your clients) on your social media channels. Share their accomplishments, an important life event they had etc...Retweet. @mention. Like. Share. Link to. This will speak loudly to your clients (and potential clients) that you are invested in and energized by them.

Regular, consistent, intentional communication with your clients is absolutely critical.if you’re not taking the time to talk to your clients, chances are your competitors are. Don’t be out of their sight, or you may find you’re out of their mind.

When to know it’s time for a (Virtual) assistant or a strategy overhaul?
📍An issue I encounter with my entrepreneurial clients is whether they should hire an assistant. 
As a solopreneur, you get conditioned to do everything yourself, cut costs and work really hard. However, there’s a point where too much hard work could work you out of more business.
A few of the core factors in deciding whether it’s time to get an assistant ( or temporary virtual assistant)are:
timing, expense and purpose.
A good indicator you need help is realizing you’re extremely busy and can’t get everything done. You may feel stressed & overwhelmed. 
Before you hire someone, assess whether the issue is needing help or needing focus. You may be so busy trying to hit every sales and marketing channel that this lack of focus is the problem itself.
⏺On the other hand, if your challenge is a steady stream of clients generating administrative work, which takes you away from serving your clients and getting new ones, you need to hire someone.
⏺The most important consideration is whether your current activities increase your revenue or waste your time. ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
