How not to sell but get sales

I recently heard someone shared about selling process and techniques (through my marketing mentorship program with another mentor) but I personally believe that selling today is no longer about selling but it is about inspiring for action by:

1) Building your brand (through valuable social media content, how your brand can stay on top of your potential customers’ mind)

2) Establishing trust (through the values you share from your expertise through their experience with your brand and content)

3) Connecting/Engaging with your audience (with your interesting and highly engaging social media posts and being responsive to your audience’s comments and private messages)

4) Inspire for action
Selling process can be done through “call to action” (by bringing them to your landing page link – so they can buy what you sell)

Something to keep in mind:

Do observe your own buying behavior and others around you, how many times we buy things after a direct sales talk/hard sales posts?

If we need something, do we search for it first or come across it from social media posts, and then when we find it’s interesting/trustworthy then we send inquiries and buy if it makes everything seems to make sense to us?

Marketing and selling techniques are different in different industries but the mindset of buyers remain the same:

Customers often buy from who they know and who they can trust and believe the products/services will solve their problems/give them the solutions they need.

#BusinessIsLikeDating.
Work on attractiveness and customers will come to you. 🙂

Most people want quick and fast results so they focus on selling not branding and they will need to work hard on hard selling forever.

Branding is like a snowball effect, it takes time to build but it can lead to something much bigger and more sustainable than just focusing on selling alone.

Why an Entrepreneur’s Team is more important than Money?

An #EntrepreneurTeam is more important than #money. – that’s why I bought this book because it resonates with what I believe in.

I believe that having a good team and #GoodRelationship with people you work with or work for is more important than money.

Why is it more important than money?

In difficult times like this, money can’t do much for you, it’s the people who can help you or at least be there for you and you can do the same for them too.

You can be great at something but you can’t possibly be great at everything and be able to cope doing everything all by yourself. To grow your #business to the next level, you will need a team who can think like #BusinessOwners.

Why would an employee think like a business owner?

If you care for them as a person, they will care for your business and treat it like their own. If you don’t care for them, they will do the same when they do their job.

Treat your team members well, train them and empower them to think with #EntrepreneurialMindset, they will do wonders for your business.

What to do to live the life you dream of?

Don’t be afraid of making mistakes or meeting with failures.

Be afraid of not trying, be afraid of living life with regrets on what you could have done and whom you could have been.

I do my best daily because my biggest fear is regrets.

I have made many of my dreams come true in my life by doing my best daily, making good use of my time, focus on skills + personal development, taking daily action towards my dreams/goals and giving myself no excuses.

As matter of fact, most people know how to get what they want but they just haven’t done enough of what it takes to get there or they don’t have the right strategies and keep doing the same thing over and over.

Or they just give up too soon.

If you want something, do what it takes (not just what is convenient), be flexible and creative with your approach, be consistent in taking daily action towards your goals and go get it!

That’s it and you will get it!

How to do what you love successfully?

Are you doing what you love?

Most people say they want to be rich so they do not need to work and be able to do whatever they want with their free time and travel the world.

Me?
I wish I could work forever.

Why?
Because whatever I am doing now is in line with where my heart is and what I believe in.

What do I do?

Can we do only what we love?
No, to be successful at doing what we love, there will be things that we may not like to do that much (like advertisements, marketing work, selling process, administration, paperwork), but it is still parts and parcles of running a successful #PassionBasedBusiness.

How to become successful at doing what you love?
You can do it in 5 words:

Just Do What It Takes“.

If A doesn’t work, try B.

If B doesn’t work, try C.

If C doesn’t work, try ABCD.

If you allow yourself no rooms for excuses, set goals, take daily action, while be flexible with your approach and strategies, you will be successful in the end.

If you are not successful yet, it is not the end.

Keep at it and be consistent in taking daily action, but being flexible and creative with your strategies and approach.

Whatever you do, don’t give up on doing what you love (and less love but required and necessary.)

If you want something, go get it, period.

Social Media Marketing Strategies for Business and Life Success

Everyone of us is good at something, passionate about something or at least strongly interested in something.

If we can share what we know to help people learn more about that something, by knowing how to reach out to more people with social media marketing strategies and techniques, we will be able to monetize from our knowledge, skills and expertise.

We can also use social media platforms to create and attract more business/life opportunities to our lives.

It’s very important for business owners to learn more about marketing, branding and closing skills to make their business a success.

Once you are branded, people will come to you because they want to work with you.

If you think you offer great products or services, you need to make sure to be there, where they can easily find you.

Set a target group for your customers and think of where they are and how to reach out to them.

If you can attract leads, opportunities will be knocking on your door not you knocking on their doors.

When there is higher demand for your products/services, you can charge higher and you get to choose who to work with.

You can work less, get more and be able to give more.

Why many businesses fail?

It’s mostly because people can’t find them.

Understand where your customers are and what their behaviors are.

Think about what are the search terms that your customers will use to find your products/services, use them and make it easy for people to find you and convenient to do business with you.

Think about their behavior (FB records their interest, search terms, life events, relationship status, jobs, education qualifications and we can apply them in the details of our FB ads setting).

Now FB has reduced organic reach significantly, so that businesses need to pay to advertise or by getting people to engage more with the posts and share the posts.

Don’t become successful just for the money.

Success is never just about the money.

Know your why, why you want to be successful.

Be successful, because you want to create more positive impact, make a difference to more lives and you will have more money to help more people who need your help or can’t help themselves.

What is your B.S.? (Belief System)

Give yourself no excuses on why you can’t do something, instead, fill your belief system with resourceful thoughts and take proactive action towards your dreams/goals and focus on creating positive impacts on other people’s lives.

We were born to stand out, not to just fit in and be a mediocre.

We were born to share our expertise, make a difference to this world, not to be the richest man in the graveyard.

If you want to be successful, learn from successful people, and do what they do.

Nothing great in life comes easy, it requires daily effort, the right strategies, determination and consistency.

Success leaves clues, if you are willing to do what it takes, you will be successful too.

Be genuine, charismatic, passionate, friendly and put people first before business and people will want to work with you, like how I have signed up for John Lee’s marketing boothcamp on 12-14 August 2019 in Singapore.

These are ideas I learned from/ inspired by attending at #MarketingForProfits Seminar on 12.06.19 by #JohnLee who travelled from UK to share with us in Singapore.

Thank you #JohnLee.

Business success will make you rich and enriching others’ lives, will give you a life well lived and fulfilment that money cannot buy.

How the language of mindset affects the kind of lives we live in

The belief we have will affect the way we think (which forms our mindset.)

The mindset we have will affect the way we speak to ourselves and others (which form our language patterns and communication skills).

The language we speak to ourselves will decide what kind of action we take.

The language we speak to others will decide how others will treat us.

The action we take and how others treat us will decide what kind of life we live in and how successful we can be.

Skeptical mindset – helps us see what is impossible.

Proactive mindset – helps us see what is possible.

Life Entrepreneurship – Taking full ownership of your life

Have you ever met anyone who said “I can’t do this because… (external factors)…” or “I have many problems in my life, because … (external factors)…?

I have met many people like that in my life and feel the compelling need to write this article to share with people who feel that way about what I have been practicing in my own personal life. I refer to this concept/philosophy as ” Life Entrepreneurship” on how to solve your life’s problems by taking full ownership of your life.

If you are willing to think that everything that happens to you happens because of you or at least has something to do with you, you will be able to take full responsiblity to change the situation you are in.

If you can do that, most of the problems in your life will get solved. I have been practicing life entrepreneurship myself and I see amazing results in my life and that’s why I am here to share with you about #LifeEntreprenueurship.

Imagine your life as a “company” that you have full ownership of it. As a company/business owner, you must do whatever it takes to make your business a success and everyone in your “company” and “clients” matters to your business’ success.

Your role as a “life business owner” is not to just impress or please your clients but also to be able to motivate your employees by maintianing good relationship with them.

If there are any problems in any “departments” of your life, you will do your best to investigate them to find out the root cause, to understand them, to solve them and to prevent similar problems from happening in the future.

If you view your “life company” from an employee’s perspectives, you may think someone else should solve the problems, especially if the problems isn’t within your job scope nor department.

The truth is, in our own life, we are not only responsible for our lives, but those around us as well.

If your boss, colleagues, friends, and family members are not treating you well, do you think it is their problems alone?

If you have been living life of a mediocre with unfulfilled wish and dreams, who should be responsible for it?

If you are single because you always have difficulty finding/maintaining meaningful relationships with anyone, is it really because of you are just unlucky in love?

Do you listen to your life’s employee and customers’ feedback or just ignore them?

Do you have a proper life management plan and strategies to live a successful and fulfilling life or just leave everything to fate?

If you aren’t getting the results you want in your life, will you be open to adjusting your approach?

If you need a life consultant and coach to help you figure it out together and come up with a better life business plan and strategies, PM to me on LinkedIn or Facebook.

How to achieve more in life!

What I learned from attending National Achievers Congress 2019 on 16 May 2019, Singapore

What I learned from #GaryVee:

Be genuine and authentic.

Share your content to the world daily.

We all have important message to share with the world to benefit other people.

Give selflessly.

Why some businesses are not successful?
Because they are selfish.

Focus on adding value on people’s life

If you want to do something, start now.

Goals and plans are nothing without action.

You don’t need to care what everyone thinks, it matters what you think.

Love yourself – don’t judge yourself, don’t beat yourself up when things go wrong but do listen to some constructive feedback.

Be your best self!

If some people don’t believe in you, but you believe in yourself, go look for people who believe in you and work with these people

To grow your business, you need a team (Gary Vee has a team for content posting and video production)

Be authentic with integrity and good intention to help people and no agenda.

People like people who have no agenda.

It’s ok to be direct, if you mean well, and you are saying it for their sake as some people really need a wake up call.

Treat your children like children, not product, their grades do not reflect your personal success, don’t pressure them

What I learned from #GrantCardone:

Opportunities come from people, get out there and talk to strangers

Strangers have everything you want.

A penny saved is still penny, not a penny earned.

You need a team to grow your business.

Most one man show businesses don’t grow (64% of businesses in US is at the breakeven or lower, 67% of these businesses have no employee)

Outsourcing will help you save time and tab on to experty of others.

Engage/hire people who can do the thing better than you.

Myth: Do what you love!
Don’t just do only what you love.
Do you what you don’t like to live the life you want to live!

Teach your kids to talk to strangers and concept of making money, how to get the things they want, not just the concept of saving money and keep telling them to be careful!

Don’t take no for an answer, he called his wife 26 times in 6 months, before she was willing to date him.

You need a good partner.
(He said his wife is accountable for 99.99% of his success.)

Entrepreneurs are people who invest and risk their time and money to have more time and money to live the life they want.

Ecomonics is the management of your household.

You can’t be successful by being happy and broke.

Face your numbers and settle your financial issues.

Money is not king, cashflow is.

Don’t love your money and just keep it, make your money make babies for you!

Money makes more money when it moves.

Most people invest money in their home more than they do in their businesses.

Invest time, effort and money in growing your money!

All leads are good leads, there are no bad leads.
If they don’t close with you, they will probably close with someone else.

You sell at their emotions.
You close (deals) at their logics.

Think BIG and take massive action

Myth:
“Don’t set high expectation or you will be disappointed.”
No, you will be disappointed if you
don’t set high expectation and you waste your time of 80 years living a life of a mediocre.

What I learned from Peng Joon:

When you want to do something, you must go “all in” to be successful and be able to make a difference to your life and others.

He googled ” how to make money online”and started from there by writing his first e-book and one thing leads to another.

When we want an answer for something, look it up in Google!

What I learned from #SandyJadeja:

You can create your own economy (trading).

News and media aren’t always telling us the truth.

Traders make money from short terms investment, from up and down turn.

Value investors makes money on long term investment in the companies they see the potentials in.

Be preapared for upcoming economic recession.

To learn more about trading and investment.

Teach your kids :
Communication skills
Negotiation skills
People skills
Money management skills

Power of Gratitude

If you don’t take people’s kindness for granted, you will continue to have more kind and helpful people around in your life and these people will continue to be kind and helpful toward people around them too and that means you are contributing in making this world a better place to live in and even more if you are a kind and grateful person yourself too.

Once kind people feel like they are taken for granted, being used, or thier help is expected rather than appreciated, chances are they may become more reserved in being kind and helpful next time to the next person who needs their help because they didn’t have positive experience in helping other people in the past.

A small act of appreciation for others’ kindness can go along way. Keeping them going by being considerate even before asking for help and when they help you, don’t take them for granted.

Self-awareness for self-development

How well do you know you?Do you keep your own attitude, characters and behaviour in check regularly?Are you open to constructive feedback from people around you?Or do you always rationalise away the feedback given to you with your self-defense mechanism?Will you be open to change, adjust or improve who you are and what you do for better results in your life?In my job as a HR and People Development manager, I have met many people who said something like “This is who I am. I just want to be myself.” or “I am just being an honest/direct person.” When something goes wrong, these people tend to think it is so because someone or something else causes it and they have little control over situations around them.If we want our lives to be better, we need to think better, communicate with other people better, behave better and we will even need become a better person with better mindset to attract/create the life we want to live in.Why do you need to care about personal development?What you give out to the world is what you get.
Your life can only get better when you become better.My interview and coaching question often includes “What’s your personal development goals?” Sadly, many people don’t even know what personal development really means and their goals are usually to make more money, to go on holidays and to be financially free so they don’t have to work again, retire soon and live a comfortable life.If you know what you want in life and choose to do what you love, or love what you do, you will feel like you want to work forever and money is just an exchange for the values you bring to the company/your clients.Work/business should make our lives’ more meaningful. purposeful and not miserable. In order to do our job/ business better , we need to become better too, to make better decisions, and take better action.Then, what do we need to become a better person?It starts with self-awareness. Be observant about who you are and what you do and how others perceive you and how they react/response to the way you communicate with them and they way you make them feel.Start setting some personal development goals, find a role model, learn from positive attributes of people you admire, educate yourself on personal development as well as professional development.When you are willing to change for the better, your life will change for the better too. Everyone of us deserve to live the life we dream of, by being a person who is worthy of success.Author: Natalie Guo, WisePolyglot
