Marketing for Small Businesses

Are you overwhelmed by all of the marketing you could or SHOULD be doing?

Inbound, outbound, digital, internet, content, search, social media, online, email, relationship, referral, newsletter, freebie, drip, niche, direct, indirect, event, offline, viral, mass, scarcity, word-of-mouth, ……… there are more than 50 types of marketing strategy.

Time is so precious and there are so many platforms which are the best for your business?

Most small businesses are the manifestation of a dream, run by business owners who want to be their own boss and sell a service or product in which they truly believe. Rarely does someone go into business because they want to spend hours figuring out ways to persuade customers to engage with them, buy from them, or even notice them.

BUT the success of any small business is dependent on being noticed, engaged with and bought from. For a small business to succeed it must connect with its audience on a personal level.


This interactive 5-hour workshop combines theory, psychology, skills and useful techniques that you can apply to your business straight away. You will identify which marketing activities you enjoy and which strategies and platforms work best for you in your business. Rather than trying to do all, let’s focus your time and resources only on marketing activities that produce the most results for you.

Bottom line – you will complete an individual marketing strategy for your business, leaving with a clear and concise idea of how to move forward with your marketing and the excitement and confidence to execute your plan.

Make every pound and minute that you invest into marketing your business count!


This is for you if you want to:

  • Take a fresh look at your business and make your marketing activities more effective.

  • Gain solid understanding of how to approach your marketing and build a positive reputation.

  • Understand how to harness online and offline marketing opportunities that are right for your business without spending a massive budget.

  • Rise above the confusion and create a simple, easy-to-understand marketing approach that does not monopolize your entire week.


    "I attended Tammy's workshop today and came away with all sorts of ideas! Her approach was refreshing, inspiring, packed full of information. She has a warm and gently humorous approach in her workshop delivery and managed to pack in time for discussion, working on our own and sharing her knowledge and own personal anecdotes too. This relaxed but informative style is exactly what I look for in a workshop.”

    Helene Jewell


    Your Outcomes

    You will –

    • Get clear about your marketing objectives
    • Decide which marketing tools and techniques are going to work best for your business

    Emma Van Heusen


    Content will include, but is not limited to:

    • Identifying your audience and finding out what makes them tick
    • Profiling your customers, being clear on the relationship you intend to build.

    Laura Stevens is professional marketing enthusiast with over 20 years marketing experience  - mainly working "client-side" as a Marketing Manager. 7 years ago, she decided to go it alone and launched The Wise Ass Marketing Co.

    Although an experienced marketing strategist, Laura decided it was time to focus on the stuff she really loves doing - Webdesign & Online Marketing, Copywriting and Graphic Design.

     But all that experience hasn’t gone to waste - far from it… Laura say’s the great thing about having experience in all aspects of marketing, is being able to apply it to every client’s brief. “It enables me fully understand where a particular project (your website) will fit within the bigger picture of a company’s business strategy.

    “Your website shouldn’t be a stand alone piece, it should be an integral part of your business model, connected to your social media strategy and it should behave like a virtual sales rep for your business. In short - it should earn its keep!”

     How many designers/developers do you know that can bring along 20 years worth of strategic marketing experience too?

     In this skills session, Laura would like to talk to you about:

    •    SEO/Keywords
    •    Content marketing
    •    Blogging
    •    Social Media
    •    bringing all of this together whilst killing several pesky birds with one stone
    •    Making your website earn it’s keep!

    Come and learn how your website fits into the bigger picture, what needs to be done to make it work harder for your business AND how to turn your website into your very own virtual sales representative.

    • Create an automated sequence that invites your prospective clients in to get to know you and your brand
    • Stimulate the imagination of your prospective customers and build a sense of community between teller and listener.

    PRESENTED BY SAM OSBISTON

    What does your client want from you?

    Do you really understand them?

    How do you get to know them? How do they get to know you?

    Have you got the right touch point to draw your ideal customer to your brand at the right time in the right way at every step of the customer journey?

    Are you saying the right thing at the right time?

    Customer Journey mapping helps you understand “the bigger picture” of the customer experience. It reveals opportunities to satisfy customer pain points, eliminates points of potential disconnection, and ultimately allows you to serve your customer in a way that is guided by their preferences.


    This interactive 5-hour workshop combines the theory, psychology, technology and skills required to guide you through the process of planning your own customer journey - the authentic way to channel sales into your business without the annoyances of “in you face” pop ups and valueless opt-ins. We will review all touch points from BEFORE the customer is aware of the service to AFTER they leave - if they ever do!

    Bottom line – you CAN create a non-icky sales funnel that focuses on establishing trust with your customers through providing high-value content, products and services with excellent customer service AND a delightful experience.


    This is for you if you want to:

    • Build brand exposure and serve your audience in a bigger way.
    • Understand and optimize your customer experiences.
    • Learn how to create a “nice friendly sales funnel”.
    • Differentiate your brand by exposing new opportunities to provide additional value to your customers.

    Rise & Shine - POWER - A Two Day Transformational Workshop
    Jul
    6
    to 7 Jul

    Rise & Shine - POWER - A Two Day Transformational Workshop

    Freedom comes from knowing who you are and having the courage to stand in the full extent of your power.

     

    • Raise Your Awareness
    • Be Honest With Yourself
    • Stand In Your Power
    • Accept Yourself Fully
    • Connect With Others Authentically

     

    Are you standing in your power or are you trying to please others?

    Are things happening TO you or FOR you?

    Do you feel powerful? Or powerless? Are you living a life of compromise?

    What DO you have the power to change?

     

    Have the courage to live by your own values, priorities and standards without apology.

    live life

    It is so easy to give your power away, to let others choose the direction of your life for you, to kowtow all the time to familial demands, to take on EVERYTHING that is asked of you regardless of what is already on your plate.

    Let’s be honest – we all like to be needed, we all like to please, there is a victim and a martyr inside us all who just loves elevate the importance of others and put everything of even our own basic needs. Do you know that part of you? Do you know when and why that part of you makes an appearance?

    When you give your power away you become that martyr, a victim of circumstance.

    • You invalidate your own thoughts and opinions.
    • You assume others are better, greater, know more and have all of the answers you need.
    • You give up your right to be selective and genuinely believe you have no choice or control.

    Eventually you lose sight of who you are as a unique individual and end up with no idea what you want from life for yourself, feeling lost, self doubting, overwhelmed, inadequate, undeserving and confused.

    Life becomes one compromise after another; one sacrifice after another and no one is happy.

    DO NOT BECOME A PASSENGER IN YOUR OWN LIFE.

    THIS IS IT.

    THERE IS NO DO-OVER.

    CLAIM YOUR VEHICLE BACK AND JUMP IN THE DRIVER’S SEAT

    start now

    This interactive 2-day workshop takes you through a process of self discovery, resolving conflicts within your mind, yourself, with other people and your wider world. Through creating a greater understanding of ourselves in relation to others and our environment we can effect positive change.

    • We will explore who you are – the parts of you that you accept and love and the parts of you that you reject and hide – so that you can reclaim your whole self, finding your power and voice along the way.

    • We will look at your relationship with power, choice and control.

    • We will consider your interactions with others and how you might like them to be different.

    • We will create and experience what it feels like to be a more powerful version of self, developing choice and the responsibility required to co-create a new reality.

    Through creating more personal power you learn to embrace life, adopt a more courageous approach to uncertainty, and develop a deep sense of knowing that whatever is around the corner, you have the confidence, capacity and confidence to face it head on and come out on top.

    power workshop

    This is for you if:

    • You are tired of feeling or experiencing any of the following: anger, resentment, guilt, undeserving, overwhelmed, inadequate, self critical, judgmental, jealous of others, blame, fearful of confrontation / rejection, and like you are not good enough.

    • You want to understand yourself more fully, be more intentional with your thoughts and choices, playing a more active role in the co-creation of your reality.

    • You want to overcome self doubt and self sabotage, clearing the way for success and abundance.

    • You want to raise your self awareness and adjust your life, relationships, self care, attitude and personal beliefs to stay clear of complacency and unconscious living.

    • You want to be less reactive and worry less about what others might think, focusing more on being responsive to your own unique life experiences.

    Live you life

    DAY 1 - POWER & SELF:

    The Business Haven presents VMA with Tamsen Garrie

    An Evening with Tamsen Garrie

    Accelerate Your Business Results with VMA (Vision > Mindset > Action)

    When people are not succeeding in business, it’s usually because there’s a tension between what they want their business to be like and what they’re actually doing. In this talk, Tamsen will share with us her 3 step strategic business growth model, which when applied will enable even the least process-driven entrepreneurs amongst us to achieve more success in their business with ease.

    Biography

    Ditching a successful management career in the corporate world in 2002, Tamsen moved to Melbourne, Australia where over 4 years, she re-trained in Psychology, Clinical Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy, NLP and coaching. She embarked on her self-employment journey in 2006 and over ten years, she has built a successful clinical practice, which she took from start-up to an associate model in just 18 months, developed a national business network, written a business book and helped thousands of business owners build successful businesses through online programmes, mastermind groups and 1-2-1 coaching and mentoring.

    Tamsen has since written for many business books and both online and offline business publications and is often invited to speak at business growth events all around the country. Her experience working with thousands of businesses, training hundreds of leaders and developing dozens of teams has resulted in a thorough understanding of the many challenges that are familiar to business owners and this coupled with her engaging communication style and her ability to work with all types of people makes her uniquely placed to work with businesses to develop the Vision, the Mindset and the Strategy to enable both personal and business success.

    The Business Haven is all about community, collaboration, and connection.

    These skills sessions are designed for local business women who are interested in learning in a social setting. The groups are small, maximum 12 people, ensuring the personal application of both subject matter and support.

    This is a learning and leaning experience with emphasis placed on skills development and thinking differently, pertinent to women who are thinking of starting a business, wanting to scale up their business, wanting to enhance their business intelligence, wanting to develop themselves or wanting to find support from others in a similar situation.

    This is a non-profit venture.

    The structure of the sessions is very simple and comprises of the necessary introductions, a themed presentation, and some group work. The sessions are informative, insightful, supportive, interactive and fun! It is all about self-directed learning and creating a forum where self development and business development are enhanced simultaneously.

    Selling In Your Style

    How do you feel about selling?

    Awkward?

    Afraid?

    Pushy?

    Unworthy?

    The truth is your customers need you to sell. That is why you set up your business, right? You've got something you want to give to the world, something you feel passionate about, that you know you can help people with ………… right?

    The ONLY way you can truly make that impact is by making the sale.

    Your customers NEED you to sell to them so they can experience what you have to offer.


    This interactive 5-hour workshop combines the theory, psychology, science and skills required to identify the mindset blocks, overcome them and build the confidence you need to start making sales - in a non-icky way! We will explore the concept of sales we will redefine the sales process to be one that you actually enjoy, shifting the process so that it feels different. We will look at how, through creating more opportunities to interact and serve your clients and having authentic conversations, sales become a natural byproduct without the need to engage in icky, pushy hard sales tactics.

    Bottom line – you can sell in your style.


    This is for you if you want:

    • Sales techniques that work for you because the traditional processes feel pushy and aggressive.
    • Practical knowledge to use in casual, yet convincing conversion conversations with prospective clients.
    • To enter a conversation with a prospective client with confidence and structure it in a way that nurtures trust and rapport and makes the prospect feel at ease and eager to get your solution.
    • To win your customers through your personality, interpersonal skills and trust relationship.

    “ I attended my first workshop and I have come away with a refreshed frame of mind as to how to get customers! Came home and immediately signed up for the next one and told my friends all about it! Tammy is a fantastic speaker and I am very happy that we have met!”.

    Gemma Burchill


    Your Outcomes

    You will –

    • Learn to do a “needs” assessment; understand a prospect’s current needs and pains, and urge them to reveal their ideal future self.
    • Learn to present your solution as the vehicle to getting to that ideal future self, presenting a tailored solution that meets their true needs.
    • Understand how to put you and the listener in a no-pressure, nurturing environment.
    • Distinguish between real and fake objections and how to unravel their real objection and their top value.
    • Learn to sell from a place of service positioning yourself as a decision facilitator.

    “The workshop was packed with info, but also gave us room to breathe and think. Tammy's enthusiasm is infectious and the quality of her presentation is second to none. The best thing is that I now have goal setting skills, not just for my business but for life in general”.

    Charlotte Nock

    Rise & Shine - Two Day Transformational Workshop
    Apr
    27
    to 28 Apr

    Rise & Shine - Two Day Transformational Workshop

    A shift from the distraction of doing to the satisfaction of being.

    Awaken Your Inner Wisdom

    Change Your Focus

    Connect with Your Purpose

    Find Freedom in Life

    How much more time are you going to spend wondering, wishing and hoping? 

    How much longer are you going to wait? 

    YOU KNOW there is more to life, but you are looking for answers in the wrong places. You are disregarding your inner wisdom and distracting yourself with busyness, excuses, justifications and 'maybe tomorrows'.

    On the outside you might be reaching some of your "goals" or "targets" but on the inside the gratification is fleeting, then there is a return to confusion, emptiness, numbness and the dull ache of dissatisfaction.

    You tell yourself the same narrative over and over again - the UNTRUE STORY OF YOU - but deep down you know, YOU KNOW something has to change.

    This interactive 2-day workshop takes you through a process of self discovery from the state of frustration, emptiness, resistance and exhaustion to a place of direction, meaning, passion and fulfillment.

    For professionals who want to live and work with wisdom and purpose in complete alignment with their true nature and their real potential.

    This is for you if you are:

    • In a job that you are not loving right now, and want to rise up out of it and shine a light on your true nature and purpose.
    • In a job that you do love but want to rise up in terms of enhanced performance, bring more purpose to your work allowing your full potential to shine.
    • A business owner wanting to trust your own expertise more, make better decisions and be motivated by inspiration instead of survival.

    Your Outcomes:

    • You will develop the ability to become internally referenced, see beyond the surface of things and embrace your inner resource of wisdom and guidance.
    • You will understand, accept and trust your inner guidance system (in-tuition) to improve "in-moment" judgement and make smarter life decisions.
    • You will be able to stay centred and grounded regardless of what life throws at you; finding a deep, safe, sense of knowing and the ability to play an active role in the co-creation of your future.
    • You will see more choices, opportunities, solutions, and possibilities without self-imposed limitations, negative thinking and fear-driven reactions.
    • You will gain greater purpose and certainty around what is right for you, and the tools, understanding and insight to live a meaningful life with a purposeful career.
    • You will discover a new level of authenticity in yourself, improving your understanding of and your relationship with yourself and others. 

    DAY 1 - INTUITION:

    *** Learn to tap into your inner wisdom and guidance.

    *** Learn to listen in a new way - see, hear, feel and know.

    *** Learn to step away from the torture chamber of the mind, getting out of your head and into your body.

    *** Learn to dig deep and connect to a deeper truth of who you are and what is important to you.

    DAY 2 - PURPOSE

    *** Learn who you really are at your core and what gives you passion, fulfillment and joy.

    *** Learn how to free your true nature, giving yourself permission to "be" that in the world.

    *** Learn how to bring who you are to what you do through natural expression.

    *** Learn how to love in alignment with your strengths and purpose, 100% as your true self.

                                                       "Yesterday It was enough, but today it isn't"                                               

    This programme is delivered in alignment with the ICF accredited programmes of INNER LIFE SKILLS by Tamsin Kate Acheson, ILS Master Coach and Faculty Trainer (http://www.innerlifeskills.com/trainers-partners/).

    Key aspects of the ILS programmes have been combined with additional learning and experience to create a comprehensive two-day process driven workshop based around Intuition and Purpose, both topics within the ILS Empower Master Coach Qualification (http://www.innerlifeskills.com/).

    Brain Based Time Management

    10:00 am10:00

    Brain Based Time Management

    Is your day filled with “tasks”, meetings, deadlines, and to-do lists littered with checkboxes and strike-throughs?

    Do you measure daily success by how much you “cross off,” not how much you actually achieve?

    Are you in control of your environment or is your environment controlling you?

    In the quest for time management to check off as much as possible, we wind up creating stress, which leads to procrastination and delays; the very thing we’re trying to avoid.


    This interactive 5-hour workshop combines the theory, psychology, science and skills required to change the way you view time and tasks.

    Bottom line – you can’t manage time, in fact it isn’t even time we are managing. You need to learn to manage YOU – your mind, your attention and your focus in order to be more productive.

    This is for you if you want to:

    • Find time every day for creativity, spontaneity and doing the things you really care about.
    • Switch off the 'noise' and ensure that you are diverting all your brain power to where it's needed - at the right time.
    • Move beyond the “one size fits all” outdated time management strategies and look at the internal conflicts and pressures that actually influence your approach to work.
    • Get the best out of every day in terms of goal achievement – personal and professional.

    “I attended a couple of workshops run by Tamsin and they have been excellent. It's often the case when you go to a workshop it's great at the time but as time goes on its easy to forget things, not here. She has a way of sharing nuggets of info the just come back right when you need them”.

    Lucie Gray


    Your Outcomes

    You will –

    • Change the way you view time and tasks.
    • Understand how your brain operates and learn how to work with it.
    • Define your personal mind management strategies.
    • Learn to free up your neurons for more productive use.
    • Get back in charge of your attention and reclaim your time.

    “Attended my first worship with Tamsin yesterday and it was jam packed. It achieved everything I needed: information, insights, coaching to come around to my own answers, made me uncomfortable so I could move forward and challenged me in ways I couldn't have guessed. Thank you Tamsin for sharing your knowledge so freely and wanting the best for your clients”.

    Victoria Laws


    Content will include, but is not limited to:

    • Understanding your brain and mind management
    • Focus Management Strategies
    • Managing your cognitive load
    • Understanding to OVERCOME distraction and procrastination
    • Task Scheduling & Prioritisation
    • Delegation & Saying “No”
    • Tips & Hacks that trick your brain

    “Another fabulous four hours. Everything Tamsin said, projected or had on her board was dripping with insight! Not just for business – it will help me be a better person in normal life. So much great information, my brain hurts, Awesome”.
