Do You Feel Dirty Trying to Sell Too Soon?

Hi everyone! Great topic to discuss with you today. It encompasses ethics, fear, procrastination – all that good stuff that makes or breaks your business. So I was in a discussion with one of my video coaching clients and one of my assignments has them promoting something.

They made this comment: “I do have a product … it just seems awkward to try to sell to someone before they know who you are.”

So let’s discuss this!

Because the reality is, it’s a mindset that hurts your business, not helps it. In fact, there are many marketers who I know who have the opposite fear – that they’ll build an audience before they have anything to sell.

Here’s my thinking, so take it for what it’s worth… which is a lot. LOL!

#1 – Unless you’re trying to sell crap to them, you’re doing them a favor. Read the rest of this entry »

1 Year in a New Niche Part 6

Hi everyone! What have I been doing in my new niche? Struggling. The best niches for me are those I fear, those I fight, and those I have breakthroughs in – and share the whole damn thing – warts and all.  Made you a video and then there’s text below:
I’m in struggle mode. I know many of you want to pick a niche, set up a blog and instantly be posting about your successes. Okay, go ahead. The way I have always grown my audience is by being transparent about my failures and frustrations as well. I’m not a Stepford Marketer.

How to Guarantee I Won’t Promote for You as a JV Partner

Hi everyone! I’ve been in tons of small discussions lately about what entices us and repels us in terms of JVing (promoting) for someone. So let me tell you what I personally want in a JV – and what I most certainly do not want.  The below note is blunt, but just read it with a friendly Tiff smile in your mind – I’m just not sugar coating it, but I’m not mad.

I want someone who is honest with me.

Don’t sit there and tell me you’ve been on my list for 5 years and you just know I’ll love promoting this particular product that is honestly, NOT something I would promote. Either you haven’t been paying attention or you’re lying and haven’t been on my list long at all. I can check.

I want someone who doesn’t ASK me if I want to promote and make me ASK for a review copy, but who sends the communication, the product and the specs on the FIRST email.   Read the rest of this entry »

1 Year in a New Niche Part 5

Hi everyone! Yesterday, which was Thursday, I made a video blog, but the freaking thing cut off in midway because of file space on my phone and I had to rush out the door. So I’m just going to do text today here.

Yesterday I WAS able to create a video blog for my Become a Badass Beauty blog. However, I did not post it until today. So nothing else got done for the blog.

I posted the video and text for two days’ worth on the blog today and then Tweeted, G+’d and FB’d it.

I checked AWstats and it’s showing over 100 visits a day,all sorts of bots onboard now aside from Google. Read the rest of this entry »
