3 Marketing Tips for Today’s Economy from Top Business Coaches

I subscribe to Success Magazine and read it faithfully every month. I want to share a few tips with you from some of the marketing gurus of today –

Jeffrey Gitomer – Bestselling author of Little Red Book of Selling

“Every single person in every single company is either in sales or affects sales…or in service. Customers judge every aspect of every transaction and rate everything – from friendliness of people to ease of doing business to quality of product.”

Harvey Mackay - Bestselling author of Swim with the Sharks

The single characteristic shared by all the truly successful people is the ability to create and nurture a network of contacts. It is who you know and how you support each others businesses and goals.

Louise Hay – Hay House Publishing
Louise Hay is the pioneer of the personal development industry and founder of Hay House Publishing.

“Love is all you need. If we really love ourselves, everything in our life works.”

Coaching Challenge: 1) Are you in a networking group? 2) How are you contributing to your own success in the group - do you call and make connections in between meetings? 3) Set an action plan to call and connect with at least 1 new person a week in your networking groups.

At the meeting ask these 3 powerful questions*: 1) Why do you love what you do? 2) What is one of the top challenges your company is facing? 3) Tell me a powerful, passionate story about how you helped a customer.

*(Questions 1 & 3 come from Dawn Lyons a BNI (Business Networking International) speaker – 2 is from yours truly)

What’s the importance of question #2? Your customer’s, or potential customer’s, challenges let you know their needs and how your product or service could be helpful to them.

Share your answers to these questions with your networking associate and ask for what you need.

Call (209) 492-8745 with any questions or email me atlynntelfordsahl@gmail.com.

Personal Note

I love teaching seminars and yesterday’s Money Magic: How to Create Inner and Outer Abundance in Challenging Times was a great success! I sold out of books and that was fun, and had a number of pre-orders for my new Intentional JOY audio, (thank you, thank you), but the most fun was the connection with each of the 18 that attended the seminar. My best friend Victoria was my lovely assistant and Beverly Claussen’s “A Meeting Place” was a wonderful spot to conduct a seminar. Beverly made the setting up easy, so please think of “A Meeting Place” for local functions.

Tomorrow I’m off to visit my daughter Suzann in Long Beach. Many of you know that I placed my daughter for adoption when I was 15 and re-connected with her a few years ago. I am so grateful to have a loving relationship with Suzann. I share about the experience in both The Greatest Change of All and Intentional JOY (a mystery started in GCOA and concluded in IJ).
