5 Ways to Weed out Your Business Mind

This blog post was inspired by a post on the Marc and Angel Hack Life Blog.

I love Hack Life blogs because you will find unusual shortcuts that are easy to learn. I find it hard to incorporate a short cut that takes 3 hours to learn and 60 days of practice to be of use to you. I recommend this blog as a regular read for Wright Place TV Viewers because you are busy, smart and always looking for a slight edge.

Weeding out your business mind means, getting rid of some of the projects you are working on. Frankly, they are keeping you from projects that could make you money or otherwise get your closer to your goals.

1. The organizing projects: Treat yourself to something nice. Have SOMEONE ELSE organize things for you so you can focus on making more money

2. Drop some events: Some of the things you are attending will not bring you closer to your customers, future customers or future business partners. They are just busy time to get you out of the office. Volunteering for a non- profit does not fall into this category. However, some of those ?networking? events you have committed to do.

3. Dump the newsletters: Seriously, if you have not read the ezine or printed newsletter, drop yourself from the list. Having a bunch of stuff you never got to or read is a drain on your mind power. At this point I never add a newsletter without dropping one I already get.

4. Limit the time: There are some things I work on and for some reason, never complete or get to work correctly. I work on them for a certain period of time and then I move on. Spending days on a non-essential item can really be a time and mind drain. I also like to time how long it takes me to do certain things so that when I delegate them, I know how long it should take someone else to do it for me. An excellent tool for this is the Action Machine

5. Admit it: Some of the things on your list are no longer a priority. At the time of this post, I am working on my biggest event of the year, the High Tea. This event happens in a few days and nothing else has priority. People who are requesting things have to wait until after the event. When priorities change, some things get dropped by the wayside. It?s fine, which is how it is supposed to be. You cannot keep adding things to your plate without taking others off. Everyone has limited time and not all opportunities can be taken advantage of 100 % of the time.

Give yourself a break!

How to do a Sampling Campaign

 

I was reading Drew’s Marketing blog   
and he was talking about Sampling campaigns. I thought I would write about how one is done. This can give you some ideas for your business.

Service Businesses:
You do not always have to just give free services away, you can add a twist to make it really pay off for you.

You can discount the services in return for use of that business as a case study
Whenever anyone offers this to Wright Place TV Show, I take it.  It’s a great way to explore the services at a discount and feel confident that they want to make sure you succeed. Using your business as a case study only gives you more publicity. You know, Dr. Wright is all about the Publicity!

You can have Client Shadows
A potential client can shadow you as work on things, get to see your methods and  your unique style in getting it done. They will feel more confident in working with you because they will know what to expect.

Product businesses:

Product Placement on TV and Radio Shows and Blogs:
Having your product on a TV show, radio show or blog and then have them give it away gives you exposure and a viral word of mouth going. Yes even blogs get product placement now. This past few months Bloggess had a Wii to give away and I saw a lot of bloggers giving away a gift cards from K Mart and Wal Mart.
Contact the show or blog and let them know what you have and why their audience will really like it. Ask for a specific description and link back to your site and there you go!

Gift Bags
It’s the easiest thing ever! Contact events that will have your target audience and ask if you can give things away in their gift bags. If they do not have a gift bag, ask if you can place your items on the seats at the event so that each person can get one. Do not bother with a discount coupon for your item. If they have never heard of it, they wont buy it because it’s discounted.

Social Marketing Buddies
You’ve been doing all this social marketing, you have 10,000 followers on Twitter, 90 million friends on Facebook and My Space, 50,000 people ready to Digg or Dip or whatever, anytime you ask, however, NONE Of them have ever held your product in their hands? They are so used to lame virtual products they will salivate at the chance to get something real, so ask them if they would like one and write a review.

This works for Service products also. Secret Sushi (  Adam Helweh )
gave me a hour class on How to use Linked In. It was really good too.  I learned a lot.

These are just a few ideas you can use in 2009. Let’s me know if this was helpful and
