Bonnie, how do you ever sell anything if you don't make sales calls? (part 2)

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 

Today’s episode is a continuation of Episode 81. If you haven’t listened to that episode, go back and listen because you'll hear why I really don’t like sales calls. In this episode, I explain how what you are doing online should sell for you. I explain the best marketing practices to get prospective clients on your email list or to your website.. You can use all the other online platforms such as Clubhouse, Facebook, Twitter and your podcast to make connections. I also explain the three things people need...

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...

Excuses, Rabbit Holes, and Resistance and WHY your online course or program won't sell

It's simple...but not easy. Your business isn't growing the way you'd like, you're not making the sales you want and here's the reason.

In this week's episode:

  • It's not that hard to create an online course or program, but what IS difficult is the marketing so it actually sells!
  • You must have the correct messaging for your audience.
  • You've got to know WHAT to say to them!
  • It's not you, it's not your product, program or service...it's the communication.
  • You must have the correct messaging and marketing for that particular course or program in order for that course or program to sell.
  • When there is a breakdown in your online communication, the sales stop...or never begin.
  • You very likely have a pretty good idea of who your audience is, but if you can't effectively communicate with them, the sales won't happen.
  • NO ONE is a "born salesperson."

A swift kick to the rear end with inspiration and motivation for all entrepreneurs

It can be difficult for entrepreneurs to muster on during difficult times, especially with feelings of doubt, uncertainty, isolation, and depression.

In this week's episode:

  • This episode was taken from a "Reflections from the egg chair" Facebook live broadcast.
  • I used a dual caster mount to broadcast on two different devices (my iPhone and iPad) and two different places (my Facebook profile and Facebook business page) simultaneously.
  • The more people who take some action (like, love, comment, share, save, archive) on your social media posts, the more of your content those people will see.
  • YOU are responsible for what appears in your social media feeds.
  • You need to share content that is share-worthy on social media.
  • There are so many things happening to entrepreneurs all over the world right now, including isolation, and depression.

Business Mindset and what to do when you don't believe in yourself

Being an entrepreneur is no easy task, and that's why the success rate is minimal. In this episode, I get real with a lot of the mental battles I had to overcome in my business.

 In this week's episode:

  • I asked my Business Fabulous Podcast Instagram followers if they wanted this podcast episode to be personal or profesh...the vote was overwhelmingly "personal."
  • Your thoughts and your mindset have a great deal to do with the outcome.
  • If you're thinking about failure...you'll likely see failure.
  • I began my business five and a half years ago with no startup costs, no formal business training, no encouragement from anyone, no guidance, no desk or office, and zero online followers. I was also raising my young sons at the same time.
  • The difference between success and failure is giving up.
  • The most successful entrepreneurs are also the ones who don't give up, aren't afraid to try,...
