The big plans I have for my business.
|I want “Transition To Success” to be a success. For any business to be a success, big moves have to be made by business owners. Therefore, to achieve my dreams I must make a few big moves.
Public speaking has always been a personal challenge. I faced public speaking in school, and it was always hair-raising for me, but I have begun to realize that this must be a big part of my marketing strategy. This year I intend to find some speaking engagements for myself. I live in a small town, and finding chances to speak has been difficult. I tried to find speaking opportunities in my local writing association in order to market my books without success. I have been looking for opportunities to speak in front of my local business owners to market “Transition To Success”. There doesn’t seem to be an organized business group within my community. I am looking for a way to create this type of organization within my community. I feel it will be a fantastic opportunity for, not just myself, but the other business people within my community. As I market my own business I hope to create a group that will offer my local business community a chance to unite and promote local businesses.
I am a part of a few Facebook groups for authors. My plan is to find other author sites in which to promote my books. I also plan to utilize my own personal profile on Facebook to promote my books to my own Facebook friends. I have been attempting to fill my Facebook community with influencers to advance my marketing efforts. In terms of book promotion I plan to find some brick and mortar businesses in which to sell my books. I have made the mistake of not creating paper back options for my books available on Amazon. I plan to create the paper-back books that can be shipped to brick and mortar businesses.
Implementing these moves will require a way to promote myself and my business offline as well as online. My efforts have always been online. I will be creating business cards in order to advance my reach offline. Up until now, I thought there really wasn’t a need for this.
I have to learn to think and behave like a business owner. This mind set shift will be my biggest move. I will be tweaking myself to make my business the success that I want it to be.
To start making this happen, starting with this entry, I will including the link to my Facebook group with each of my entries. I hope you visit and find out what is going on in “Transition To Success” on a daily basis.
