You DON'T want social media followers!

It's true. You DON'T want social media followers--it's not enough anymore! Check out episode 88 for all the details.

 

 “When you're posting, you're not posting with thousands and thousands of people in mind (you really honestly might not know all of your target audience who's following you), you're posting with one person in mind...that ideal client avatar.

-Bonnie L. Frank 

In today's episode I share why all the followers that most digital marketers are seeking, aren't actually what you want. Social media followers are really just a vanity metric. Many online marketers will tell you that you need tons of followers but if they are not the right kind of followers then you really are wasting your time. It’s important to have followers but they have the right followers. It's important to make sure your ideal clients are finding you.  As an entrepreneur or an online business owner you really want to know how each of the platforms work whether...

Business Lessons from Queen Elizabeth

I love the Royals and I've have learned loads of business lessons from Queen Elizabeth. Here are some of them.

 “It's absolutely expected that in time you will hire a team. You will hire out for the things you need. You will have somebody else take care of this and have somebody else take care of that, and you will manage those people. That's how you scale a business.”

“ I think as you are surrounded by other people, whether they're business people or not, you can learn a lot about people and success by watching them. By watching how they go through life.

Why you should (or shouldn't) start a business and be an entrepreneur

Why do people actually start businesses? Being an entrepreneur isn't an easy gig. Most people never try and fewer actually succeed; however, it's totally possible and there is no ceiling to anything you can accomplish. I made the decision to start from scratch at 49 yers old with no training, money or support.

This is part 2 to the question, "Bonnie, how do you ever sell anything without making any sales calls?" The answer to this question took up two episodes! Episode 82 is part two of the answer.

"Once again, what I'm doing should be selling for me. I shouldn't have to go to great lengths to get people to buy things from me.  If you have to jump through hoops yourself to get people to buy your things. That is just too much trouble.

-Bonnie L. Frank

Bonnie, how do you ever sell anything if you don't make sales calls? (part 1)

I get asked this question a lot, "Bonnie, how do you ever sell anything without making any sales calls?" The answer to this question took up two episodes! Episode 81 is part one of the answer.

“Well, people never like to be sold to, I certainly don't like to be sold to. So, I don't do sales calls. People don't like them.”

-Bonnie L. Frank 

Today's episode was inspired from a question a gentleman asked in a Facebook group. He asked, “How do you ever sell anything if you don’t do sales calls?” Well, I get asked this question quite a lot because the way I do sales is so different from the way many people do sales. Seven years ago, when I was starting my business from scratch,  I had a tough time and interviewed 25 different coaches to possibly hire one myself in the future. You'll hear me explain what that was like and how it directly shaped my view on sales.

Today, as a business coach, I offer three types of calls. A business strategy call and...

Clubhouse isn't your business marketing answer!

Clubhouse is a wonderful platform and it can do amazing things for you personally and professionally, but it isn't your business marketing answer. Listen in for all the details.

It is never okay, in my opinion, to just talk about what you've got for sale. Nobody cares that you've got something for sale. Guess what? They’ve got something for sale, too!   

-Bonnie L. Frank 

Today’s episode is my third episode about Clubhouse. Yes, my third. Why? Well, I thought it was about time I dispel some misconceptions about Clubhouse. If you’ve heard the buzz about Clubhouse from any online social media marketers, you would think there were customers just lining the Clubhouse hallways eager to buy any discount webinar, photo filter or online course you are hawking. I can tell you that is just not so. If you go onto Clubhouse with the idea that you're going to sell, sell, sell, you'll probably fail. So then, what is really going on in those rooms...
