Marketing Message & Methods
You may have the most life-changing product or service ... but unless you can create interest, build desire and close the sale, you do not have a business.
The sad truth is that most businesses fail
Regardless of how incredibly talented a leader is at practicing their craft, data shows over and over again that over HALF of startup business fail within 4 years. The leading cause of these failures is business incompetence. The areas in need of improvement are:
✔︎ Emotional pricing
✔︎ Lack of financial responsibility and awareness
✔︎ Going into the business for the wrong reasons
✔︎ Lack of market awareness and marketing message and methods
✔︎ Leader falls in love with the product
✔︎ Leader gets worn-out and/or underestimates time requirements
✔︎ Advice from family and friends
✔︎ Lack of a clear focus and actionable planning
The Guruville Membership Program was created to help those who are in the business of helping others, learn and apply the knowledge and skills necessary to grow a thriving business which serves you and your team as well as your clients, longterm ... profitably.
We start out each week a new training video to help us shift out of our well-worn grooves of thought, action and perception.
You will learn something new. You will add a new tool to your bag ... and be able to hone its implementation throughout the week.
Out of Your Own Way Wednesday
We are our own worst enemy. We constantly, yet unconsciously sabotage our own best efforts.
Each week we will discover specifically how our members are getting in their own way and implement tools and strategies to clear the path ahead for success.
Results and Recap Friday
We end each week wrapping up all of the new learnings and looking at the results of our efforts.
This is an important, yet widely overlooked aspect leadership ... taking the time to look back over your week to see what worked, what did not and what to change going forward.
Everyday Community Zone
One of the things leaders miss most when we go out on our own is community ... those chance meetings in the hallway or around the water cooler.
Not only is it an important social aspect to our lives ... a special creative magic is conjured up when peers connect and talk about our victories, our challenges and our lives.
It's important to have a sounding board. Bounce off new ideas ... ponder new possibilities. Find out how others have approached challenges similar to your own. Peer communities are essential to getting out of your own way by shifting out of our well-worn grooves of thought, action and perception.
You will be a member of a thriving, private community of leaders who, like you ... have made the decision to build a business and earn a living by doing what you love ... HELPING PEOPLE!
Nice to meet you!
