Episode 296: Think About This Before Your Next Price Increase!

Increasing your pet sitting prices

Have you been thinking about increasing your pet sitting prices this year? Or have you recently increased your dog walking prices, and now you’re thinking it may not be enough…

Charging the wrong amount can be the difference between a thriving business and going out of business. Ouch

There is so much to consider before increasing your prices, so that you don’t find yourself sinking six months later.

Today, I am going to tell you everything you need to know, before increasing your pet sitting prices.

Biggest Takeaways

Before increasing your pet sitting prices, it is important to have a sound pricing structure and strategy in place. This is your time to rectify any mistakes you might have made with your old pricing structure, and apply new found knowledge to your future prices.  Creating a pricing strategy that works best for your business requires consideration and time.

  • What should you be researching?
  • Have you thought about your competition? Should you?
  • Is the value you provide worth the increase?
  • What about staff wages?

Considering important aspects and knowing how to navigate them is some of the first steps in creating a sound pricing structure for your pet sitting business.

Recommendations

  • The value you provide shines through your website and social media. Now is the time to make sure your social media and website are up to par when clients and future clients are looking for pet sitting and dog walking companies.

How to use an SOP for your pet sitting business

Episode 295: How To Use an SOP for Your Pet Sitting Business

Does the thought of creating an SOP for your pet sitting business leave you feeling overwhelmed? Or have you hired an office manager but had that completely blow up in your face due to the lack of an SOP? Or even worse, take the route of starting to create one, just to end up with an unfinished mess of documents that serve the business no purpose.

While it may sound intimidating, an SOP will make everything run much smoother.

SOP For Your Pet Sitting Business

An SOP is a Standard Operating Procedure that is essential for making sure all of your operations are carried out in a consistent and efficient manner.  By having an SOP in place, everyone on your team will be following the same procedures and guidelines. This week I am helping understand the process of creating and executing this document step by step.

Biggest Takeaways

For a business owner, being able to delegate means you are able to work on your business rather than in your business. But without an SOP you cannot delegate to your team. With the right steps, creating an SOP for your pet sitting business will establish a cohesive understanding for all staff members.

How you create your SOP will be determined by certain criteria:

  • What is the goal of an SOP?
  • What platform will you use to execute this document?
  • How will you implement it?
  • What steps do you need to include?

A fluid, changeable document that will evolve with your business and define duties and roles, will establish a smooth process for staff, clients, and business owners alike.

Recommendations

  • Mastermind members have access to premium recommendations when it comes to creating an SOP for their pet sitting business. They have the support of fellow members while also gaining knowledge and advice from experts who have been in this industry for many years. It’s a community worth checking out.
  • Jumpers have exclusive insight into how to execute their business processes in a way that gains them, clients and employees. I work with many business owners one on one to achieve goals and solve problems that have been holding them back from growing. I offer a free 20-minute call to get to know you and your business. I’ll lead you in the right direction and see if the Jumper community is the right fit for you.

Episode 294: 4 horrendous mistakes many pet owners make with their CPA

Episode 294: 4 Horrendous Mistakes Many Pet Business Owners Make With Their CPA

If I asked you today, “how do your books look?” or “did you have any big surprises from your taxes?” would either of those questions confuse you? Scare you? Leave you feeling a bit unsure? That might sound invasive, but to evaluate your business, you have to be in the know of these aspects. You are not alone if you find this area tough to evaluate, but there is someone who can help you manage it all… your CPA.

Owning a pet business can be extremely rewarding, but it also comes with a lot of responsibility. Keeping good books being one of them. One of the most important aspects of running a pet business is making sure you have a good relationship with your CPA. However, many business owners make these mistakes every year, which can damage this relationship and their business.

I know tax season may have come to an end, but it actually is perfect timing for you to meet with your CPA. Or maybe you have your extension until October. Either way, in this episode I will encourage you to talk with your CPA to avoid these 4 horrendous mistakes too many business owners are making.

Biggest Takeaways

I know some business owners are paralyzed in fear when it comes to their finances, I get it. However, you need someone, the right someone, to be in your corner to answer all the questions that you need to know to ensure your business, your finances, and your livelihood are taken care of. A business owner should ensure they are taken care of all around.

  • How often do you speak with your CPA?
  • Have you ever been surprised by a big tax bill?
  • Do you know what is a right off?
  • What options do you have for incentives for your staff?
  • What about SCorp Vs LLC?

There are 4 huge mistakes being made when thinking about the questions above, and I do not want to see you repeat any of them. There are ways to avoid them and confirm your business continues on the right path.

Episode 293: 4 Mistakes Pet Business Owners Make When Hiring An Office Manager

Episode 293: 4 Mistakes Pet Business Owners Make When Hiring An Office Manager


Do you have an organizational chart in your pet sitting company? Running a pet sitting or dog walking company means that every day is filled with duties big and small, and an office manager is a huge asset when it comes to helping run your business. They can help you take care of all your day-to-day tasks that bog you down and keep you, well in your business rather than working on it.

As a pet business owner, you probably think hiring this office manager will be the answer to all your needs, but unfortunately, the process of hiring one is not easy. Many business owners are making these staple mistakes that are costing them time, money and sanity. I want to make sure you know these mistakes so you can correct them and find the people who will help you fulfill your dream business.

Biggest Takeaways

It is time to come to the realization that you are not meant to do this all on your own. But making mistakes when hiring your office manager can cost your business time and money. It can leave you wondering if it is even worth it? Should you just do it yourself? Setting yourself up for success requires ensuring you are tackling tasks correctly, especially when it comes to hiring someone to help run your business.

  • What does the process for your office manager look like? Do they have expectations?
  • What is to happen if they make mistakes, or if you make mistakes teaching them?
  • How do you decide what is set in stone or if the process is a fluid one that is ever changing?
  • Do you have enough help? How many managers do you think you need?

Hiring an office manager should be a person who is willing to help grow your business along side you. Making certain mistakes can leave you feeling hostage to situations you’ve been stuck in.

Episode 292: Staff Members Leaves The Manager, Not The Job

Episode 292: Staff Members Leave The Manager, Not The Job

Episode 292: Staff Members Leaves The Manager, Not The Job



Do you feel like you have a high turnover? Have you ever thought about why you have turnover? Do you know? Is it because of seasonal employees? young staff members moving on? or even life situations? Maybe so! But what if I were to blow your mind and have you consider something you might not have considered, but really can make a huge difference in whether employees stay or go?

It could be your management style, you as an owner, or your manager!

Bad management can turn even some of the best, most reliable staff members on your team away. And if nothing is done about the management, it will continue to happen. Because when the wrong person is named a manager, nothing can entice good employees to stay.

Statistics show, that more than half of employees with bad management are thinking about changing careers, and that half of them will quit because of this bad manager.

As the owner, you want the ability to step away from your business so you can focus on all the aspects that help you and your business grow. When you are bogged down with the everyday task of your employees, growth is put on the back burner.

This week I am giving you four things to consider in order to be a better business manager.

Biggest Takeaways

Employees are not solemnly enticed by just money. They want to feel valued, important, and needed. Having good management will ensure the longevity of your staff and keep the morale of the business high. It might be time to evaluate your management team and see if turnover could be due to their lack of good management

  • Do your managers know the staff members why?
  • How does their tone affect the staff?
  • What does the work environment look like?
  • What is their leadership type?
  • How do their expectations impact the staff?

It is important to know how your management is affecting business before staff members walk out the door.

Recommendations

  • If you’re looking for a community that is going to uplift you, challenge you, and help you grow I encourage you to look at the Mastermind group. You will find all the HR answers, business tips, and support you need to help run your business.
  • While you are looking to continue and hire your employees, do not take your eye off marketing. Because marketing is for employees too. Better Marketing With Bella helps you with all your marketing needs to ensure you are getting not only enough clients but the right employees too

The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff

Episode 291: The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff

The Single Most Important Question You Need To Ask Yourself About Your Staff


Take a moment with me if you will and think about your staff.

Do you have a rockstar staff member? Someone who is your number one, most reliable member? And what would your business look like if everyone on the team was just like this rockstar?

What about your staff workload? Is it spread equally across the board, or do some members receive more work than others because of their ability?

Evaluating your staff members are an important aspect of moving your business forward. If you are done being a helicopter CEO and ready to step out of the business, there is one very important question you need to be asking yourself about your staff.

And this week, I am here to ask that question.

Biggest Takeaways

The old saying goes “You are only as strong as your weakest link” but I see more often than not, putting up with the weakest link of your company because the abundance of staff is not there. Does this sound familiar?

  • Are you having trouble of letting go “bad seeds” out of fear of not having enough staff?
  • You only want to hire when you have the work
  • You are having trouble getting out of the field and focusing on business rather than the work
  • The fear of too many employees holds you hostage to mediocre relationships with your staff members

Evaluating your staff and asking the important questions can and will get you to a place of abundance that allows you to become the CEO you desire.

Recommendations

It is not too late to jump into my FREE hiring group that has been going on this week. Yes, it started Monday, but all the good information is there for you to get caught up on. The live events are recorded and will be there to watch until Friday, May 20th. I filled the group with the most useful information you will need when it comes to hiring and building up your team members, answering probably all the questions you were thinking.

Episode 289:Taking A Stand, Trolls, & Leaving Your Business For 6 Months..... Personal Stories With Receipts!


They say to not believe everything you read online, but what would it look like if you did?

Because there are many out there online spreading bad info and giving out bad advice. They are spewing slander and stating there is no way you can accomplish the big goals of yours. Tearing you down, because.. how does the saying go? “misery loves company”

If you are in the crossfire of this negativity online, it is time to evaluate who you are hanging out with. Then get out of this mindset.

Because, as I have stated before, change is happening. And now is the time to really look at your business and evaluate who’s working with you or against you. Time to accomplish the big goals of yours.

This week I am telling you success stories of my clients who are taking a stand and thriving in their business without even being there.

How to dismiss the negativity and trolls out there, and stand firm within your business.

How to know, it is all possible.

Biggest Takeaways

“If you don’t stand for something, you fall for everything.” (Alexander Hamilton)

  • Sometimes taking a stand is doing it differently (especially against trolls). My clients are learning how to achieve business, hire employees and successfully sustain their business while not even being there.
  • But don’t just take my word for it, listen to the success stories I have to share with you.
  • Then watch who you are surrounding yourself with, spending your time with. The groups you are in, are they teaching you or adding negativity? Are you finding too many trolls creating negative space and no leader to around to control it? I’ll tell you how that is impactful to your business. And why you might want to change it.
  • Lastly, I will always be real with you. I will tell you my thoughts, when I feel my programs are not for you, as well as bring in an expert if I do not know the answer.

Recommendations

  • Ready to learn how to do it differently? This FREE group is for you! It begins May 16th and runs through May 20th. Join the FREE group
  • Message me. I say this often right, but I mean it. I will personally answer you and lead you in the right direction of how I think I can help you. Bella@jumpconsulting dot net

3 of the biggest mistakes pet business make during onboarding and hiring

Episode 288: 3 Of The Biggest Mistakes Pet Businesses Make During Onboarding And Training

3 of the biggest mistakes pet businesses make during onboarding and training


Are you trying desperately to hire? Do you feel like you can’t find anyone? Does no one apply? Follows through? Ghosts you? Or quits right after they start?

These problems are running rampant in the industry and it is probably because of one of these three things:

Too long of an onboarding process, too much back and forth with new employees, and needing help with the probationary period.

This week I am diving into all these mistakes and what you should do to avoid them.

Biggest Takeaways

These mistakes are common mistakes I am seeing business owners making whenever they are bringing on new hires.

  • Too long of an onboarding process: You want to make sure your employees are well-equipped to do their job and feel comfortable with the company’s culture. But too much information is an overload. You want to keep it short sweet and to the point.
  • Too much back and forth: Yay for new employees! But sometimes too much back and forth can be just as overwhelming as the long process.
  • Probationary period: Is yours working? Knowing how long and when to measure performance will create a smooth onboarding process for everyone.

  • Did you take your eye off of marketing to focus on hiring? Let’s call that a 4th mistake! Your marketing should also be attracting the right employees to work for you.

Episode 287 Secure Your Support System For The Upcoming Pet Business Changes

Episode 287: Secure Your Support System For The Upcoming Pet Business Changes

As summer approaches, trends in the pet business world are getting ready for some big changes. Business, if it hasn’t already, will start booming, and while that may be so exciting are you ready for it? Does your business have a solid foundation with a good marketing strategy in place?

With the rising of inflation, people are spending their money where they feel comfortable, not only out of necessity. What is making your business stand out? If you are comfortable where you at, and think everything is great, just know things are about to shake up, and the time to tighten up is now.

This week I am sharing how I see the trends changing this summer and what you and your business can do to prepare for it. I am ready to help you succeed.

Biggest Takeaway

With upcoming changes, do you fully understand how these are going to affect your business?

You should ensure you have a supportive community rallying around you and your business in success and in help.

Never take your eye off one aspect, but in turn, make sure you are controlling all parts so that one element doesn’t end up lacking. If you think you can lay off your marketing right now because business is so busy and you want to focus on time on hiring. Then in no time, you will find yourself with a marketing problem.

These are things to consider now, as we are facing change on the horizon. You need to ask yourself, is your business prepared for where it is heading?

Recommendations

  • Are you looking for a new beginning? Stuck in a place you just do not know how to get out of no matter which way you turn? Then let’s talk. I want to hear from you and about what is going on in your business. Let me know how I can help you succeed! Book a 20 minute call with me and let’s start that new beginning you’re searching for. If spending a day with me in your home town or in mine (in beautiful Phoenix, AZ!) then an in-person intensive is exactly what you are looking for. 8 hours of hard work, getting down and dirty in the business, solving some of your hardest business needs.
  • Doors for Better Marketing With Bella are closing soon, so now is the time to get involved. 6 months of content creating and marketing set for you and your business. I can go on and on but the work speaks for itself and my clients are thriving in their businesses right now. So now is the time before the doors close for 2022.

The biggest part of social media that everyone is missing

Episode 286: The Biggest Part Of Social Media That Everyone Is Missing

The biggest part of social media that everyone is missing.


Social media has become an important part of marketing, but many people are missing the biggest part: outreach

98% of people are neglecting this element of their social media strategy and then are surprised when they are not finding success in growing their business. Outreach is key to a successful social media marketing strategy, and yet, so many people are missing out on this vital piece.

It all starts with outreach. Outreach social media marketing is the process of connecting with potential customers and followers who are not already familiar with your brand or business. It is actively reaching out to your target audience and engaging with them in a way that builds relationships.

On this week’s podcast, I answer the question “Why is engagement so important to your business” and how you should be utilizing this strategy every day to increase your business.

Biggest Takeaway

When it comes to social media marketing, people seem to be lacking the social part of it. Without reaching outside of your immediate followers, businesses will not be able to reach their full potential on social media.

Outreach is all about connecting with other people and businesses in (and out of) your industry. It’s a way to build relationships, expand your reach, and get more eyes on your brand. Outreach is often overlooked as a key component of social media marketing, but it can be the difference between success and failure. If you’re not reaching out to new people, you’re missing out on potential customers and followers.

If you want to see success in social media marketing this is where you begin.

Recommendations

The doors for Better Marketing With Bella are open for a short while longer and will not be open again until 2023. If you are ready to save time and energy on content creation, this is for you. Staying relevant and informed in the social media world is the highest priority of business owners right now, and we are ensuring they are.

Episode 285: 3 Types Of Pet Businesses That Need To Have Their Social Media Popping!


If you have been following along our theme of social media, you know just how important of a role it plays in your business. I think it is safe to say that at one point or another you have cyberstalker companies to learn more about them. Well, consumers are doing the same to your business too.

If you haven’t learned by now, social media is breaking or making goals you set for your business.

But utilizing social media is more than just posting right? Yet time and time again I see businesses with the utmost potential falling short when it comes to utilizing it. This week I address three types of goals that you might be working on that will be more easily achieved if you also leverage your social media.

Biggest Takeaways

Business owners who are leveraging how much social media can boost their business understand it involves much more than just posting and hoping for likes. If you have goals for hiring, increasing, and scaling your business than your social media needs to be excellent. I am not just talking about the great pictures you post. But conveying your worth to those who stop by.

Looking for employees?

Yes, potential employees will look at your social media and see if YOU are the right fit for them. Why would they want to work there, how would they fit in?

Wanting to raise your rates?

YUP! Your brand that your portray on your social media needs to reflect the worth of the prices you are raising! Your strategy online says a lot about your value.

Learn how to scale back business?

Well, there are two problems to be solved here, and guys I am here to help teach you this system.

Recommendations:

  • Knowing the right things to post and when to post is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to utilizing your social media correctly. After many years of experience, building my own brand and helping others find success in their business, I know how social media plays a huge part in success. With Better Marketing With Bella, not only is content created for you but success is outlined on how to use it.

Episode 283 How to tell if your social media manager is worth their pay

Episode 283: How To Tell If Your Social Media Manager Is Worth Their Pay

Episode 283 How to tell if your social media manager is worth their pay


 
 
 
 

Have you ever hired (or have been thinking about hiring) someone to manage your social media?

Do you know what you should be looking for? Are you worried you won’t get your money’s worth out of the job?

Today, there are many types of jobs and tasks you can have your assistants accomplish for you. When it comes to your social media manager, however, they need to be implementing a job that goes past just button-pushing.

This week I dive into everything you should be looking for when it comes to someone managing your social media and why you should take feelings out of it and just look at the facts.

Biggest Takeaways

A social media manager can be a huge expense for a business, so it is not crazy to think you should expect a huge return out of having one. This results in a big difference between an assistant who can schedule your content and post to your pages versus someone who is creating, engaging, connecting, and building up your brand. This week I want to make sure you know what you should be looking for when it comes to a social media manager and how to be sure they are worth your time and money. 

Recommendations:

  • Check out Better Marketing With Bella and get an idea of what it is like to have all your content needs created for you. When marketing is done right you get to focus on the “why” of your business while we focus on the “what” to show it off.
  • Follow me (@Bella Vasta) on Instagram to see the success stories of my clients killing the business. Nothing makes me happier than getting to shout them out for all their hard work and effort!
  • Take a look at my Mastermind group; a beautiful community where we come together to learn and grow.

Episode 282: How To Be A Good Business Leader And Juggle Parenting Duties: Spring Break Edition


 
 
 
 
 

Balancing parent life while running a business is super easy…. said no one ever!!

In reality, if you are a parent, you know how HARD it really is and all the struggles you have to go through to make it work. The mom/dad guilt of not spending enough time or attention on your child is apparent when you are giving your business the focus it needs. But the stress of your work to-do list can weigh you down when you are away from your business too.

So how do you find that balance? This week I am rocking the podcast during my daughter’s spring break to bring you all my tips on achieving running your business while parenting.

Biggest Takeaways

Running your business is your full-time job, but so are your children. Finding a balance that gives both aspects your full attention is what we, as parents, seek the most. But saying you want that balance seems easier than actually achieving it.  Take some of my tips and help find that balance you are looking for:

  • Schedule. Schedule time each week that is set aside just for your family. Maybe after work, you put your phone away and give your kid your undivided attention to play and spend that time together.
  • Say no. I know, crazy right? But say no to some things! If you do not want to have meetings or calls on certain days, say no, and schedule for a day when you are available. Better yet, have it kicked over to one of your assistants and have them schedule it on a day that works best for you.
  • Turn off. When you have the time for your child, turn business off. This ensures they know they have 100% of your attention. Guys, we only get 18 summers with them, we need to make sure they know how important that time together is.

I have a few more really helpful tips to get you to the work-life balance you are needing in your life right now. Parent to parent, this stuff really works.

Recommendations:

  • If less time working in the business is what you are looking for, join the Mastermind group so I can assist you and your business achieve your biggest goals.
  • Email me at bella@jumpconsulting.net to chat about finding that balance between parent life and running your business. I am here to help you and show you how possible it is.
  • Time to join the Better Marketing With Bell Waitlist is coming to an end. Soon we will be welcoming new members to the group, gearing up to help them with all their business content needs. If that is something you are interested in, jump on the list today.

Are you in a toxic relatioship with your business?

Episode 281: Are You in A Toxic Relationship With Your Business?

Are you in a toxic relatioship with your business?


 
 
 

If someone were to ask you today “Have you ever been in a toxic relationship?” what would be the first thing to come to mind?

When we think of a toxic relationship, we often think of it as either a romantic relationship or even a friendship. More times than not, you wouldn’t think of the relationship you have with your business.

But the truth is, you and your business can be in a toxic relationship right now. 

This week I dive into the red flags that stand out when it comes to a toxic relationship with your business and what you can do to ensure it gets to a healthy place.

Biggest Takeaways

We’ve previously talked about how to grow your business, how to ensure you aren’t leaving money on the table and how to keep a positive mindset to move you forward. But this week I want to talk to you about the relationship you have with your business and if there may be some red flags that are occurring.

You might notice

  • Clients that always nitpick
  • Employees holding you hostage
  • Boundaries with time that don’t exist
  • Worry taking over your sleep

And at least 8 more serious red flags you need to be watching out for as well as ways to turn it around into a healthy place.

Recommendations:

  • Look into help from  Better Marketing With Bella for all your business content needs. If that is something you are interested in, jump on the waitlist today. Next week we are gearing up to get commitments from existing customers for their renewals (which was over 80% last semester!) before welcoming our new members, so now is the time to get on the list.
  • Shoot me an email and let’s chat! Bella@jumpconsulting.net, I want to hear from you and how I can help YOU move your business forward in a healthy direction.

8 considerations to make your website a selling machine

Episode 280: 8 Considerations To Make Your Website A Selling Machine

What do you think pet parents want to see when they go to your website?

Do they want to feel like they are being sold? Talked at? Or trying to figure out how they might fit INTO your company?

Do you think they might feel overwhelmed, not knowing if you are the right fit for skill or money?

All of these are probably true and how you present yourself on your website will make or break your bounce rate.

(Bounce rate: How long someone stays on your site until the “bounce” off going to look elsewhere to solve their problem)

Recently I got a DM from someone who was going to be updating their website asking, “So what’s important on a website these days??”

 

Truth is, there is a lot to consider. Unfortunately, most business owners are so close to their business, it is often hard to get the 30K view and put themselves in their potential client’s shoes…

Biggest Takeaways

If your website is the first thing potential clients are seeing about you, then you need to draw them in.  You need to make them say, “Yes, I want to work with them!”

I started off doing this as a 7 point podcast but by the time I got to the end, it turned into 8. I was on a roll.

  • Make it about THEM not about you.
  • Keep it simple like a 1st grader is reading your website.
  • Pay attention to the navigation.
  • Don’t make them think
  • …and there are a lot more. Listen to learn more!

 

Recommendations:

  • I highly recommend Erika and her team at Barketing Blog for a website. I have been recommending her for years and she has done countless client websites. They are very happy. You can’t go wrong. Great price too!
  • Need a group of knowledgeable people to bounce your website copy of design off of? Heck! You want three months of training dedicated to this topic? Join us in the best community in the pet industry, the Jump Mastermind! 
  • Want to make sure that once your website is popping, your social media also gives the same feel for your brand? Look no further than the leading industry marketing agency, Better Marketing with Bella where we ensure that your colors, fonts, logos, copy, and creativity are all on point!
  • Maybe you are a DIY person? You can learn everything that you should have on your website here in my one hour class that comes with a workbook and on audio. Enjoy!

One thing that is preventing thousands of dollars of sales

Episode 279: One Thing That Is Preventing Thousands Of Dollars Of Sales

 

One thing that is preventing thousands of dollars of sales

What if I told you I knew what was preventing people from thousands of dollars in sales for their business, and what you can do about it?

This week I had the chance to reconnect with some old friends who I haven’t seen in close to a decade! It had felt like I stepped into a time machine and no time had passed at all. A gal that was there said she owned a house cleaning business and did petting sitting as well. Knowing I am a business coach she wanted to ask a little advice from me. Now, typically I don’t get into this with friends but I just couldn’t help myself this night! We started chatting, the energy was flowing, the conversation was amazing, and it inspired me for the topic of this week’s podcast.

Each week I receive wonderful messages from loyal listeners letting me know that they really are landing thousands of dollars in sales! What are they doing that is setting them apart from those who aren’t succeeding? If it was something that anyone could do, would you be willing to give it a try?

In this week’s episode, I break it down and examine what is the one thing that is preventing you from landing sales and what you can do over and over again to achieve this type of success.

# 1 way to increase your sales that everyone can do

#1 Way to Increase Your Sales That Everyone Can Do

# 1 way to increase your sales that everyone can do

 

I’ve heard from many of you… I don’t like answering the phone. I don’t like being put on the spot. I don’t like selling. I don’t like talking about price. All of this is stinkin’ thinking that is severely limiting your ability to grow your business.

People literally make the decision to call and speak to a company. They put their environment on mute so they can ring you and potentially speak to you. If they are doing this, they have most likely already checked you out. They have seen your website, your social… and now, they just need a bit of reassurance. They are calling you for this reassurance and you are giving them a L for LOSING instead of a W for WINNING by not answering.

This is the equivalent of walking into a store and needing help and having no associates to speak to. Or walking up to one to ask them a question and them just walking away from you. Not only is it rude, but it is frusterating. Then, you are expected to check yourself out. Can you imagine if that wasn’t Walmart and it was Nordstroms?

The horror.

I know the idea of phone calls seems so ancient. We mostly communicate through email, text, and social media messaging. But what if I told you that the old-fashioned telephone has even more persuasion and would land you more new clients? Would you be willing to answer it more often?

If you are a business that has your phone number listed on google and on your website, then you need to be answering the phones. But many of you are not.

Why?

This week I went on a mission to find out what is going on out there and made 10 phone calls to 10 different companies in the Phoenix and Dallas area. The results were astounding.

Biggest Takeaways

As business owners, we are concerned with marketing, advertising and finding ways we can build up our client roster and in turn, create more sales. We know how important client relationships are, but we are forgetting to connect with potential clients. That connection begins with.. wait for it.. a phone call!

If you answer the phone, you will land more sales. Especially because your competition isn’t doing it

Making Money Off The Podcast: Real Life Stories Of Clients Increasing Their Bank Accounts

Episode 277: Making Money Off The Podcast: Real Life Stories Of Clients Increasing Their Bank Accounts

Making Money Off The Podcast: Real Life Success Stories Of Clients Increasing Their Bank Accounts

 

Have you ever heard the phrase “do it scared!” when it comes to your business? It applies to doing things that take you outside of your comfort zone to achieve the goals you are setting for yourself. Sometimes we define our goals with the motivation behind them, but we all know, motivation without any action means… nothing. Today I am sharing some client success stories that show applying action, thinking outside the box, and allowing yourself to be scared lead to some of your biggest accomplishments.

 

Biggest Takeaways

As we spend each week together, I am hoping to inspire you to apply these strategies to your own life and business, creating your own success. By sharing the success stories of other clients, you can see that this process really works, and that with the right direction and a lot of action, you too can make magic happen! Today we hear from two amazing clients and the success they have achieved.

 

Scary but Successful.. Ask for the Sale!

When it comes to running a business, fear can hold anyone back. In this story we hear about how my client stepped out of her comfort zone and approached her client in a manner that made her client want to book more with her! With a simple script and the right direction, she was making more money in a few minutes.

 

Simple Video Generates Lead 

In the digital world we live in, we find there are still people who do not want to live the digital, fast pace life style we all seem to succumb too. In Connie’s story we hear how she took a different approach to help her client in a manner that she was not only comfortable with but resulted in another sale. Sometimes such a little thing, can really go a long way.

How I Am Dealing With A 7+ Year Troll... And What You Can Learn From It

Episode 276: How I Am Dealing With A 7+ Year Troll… And What You Can Learn From It

How I Am Dealing With A 7+ Year Troll... And What You Can Learn From It

 

Personal Podcast Today

Lately, I have been getting questions about how to deal with Trolls. You know, those people that get upset at you and start trying to rip apart your character or credibility online? Maybe it is a person that you didn’t hire, had to fire, or a client that just went sideways and you parted ways. But it turned them into angry monsters with many heads.

Sure, you have heard of the typical ways to handle bad reviews. I’ve even written about it on my blog.

But what happens when they are persistent? What happens when they don’t go away or they try to disparage you on all platforms? This recently happened to one of my clients and she was perplexed on how to deal with it. We spoke in depth about it and it was then I decided to blow the lid off something that has been popping up on my own feed for at least seven years.

I deal with this too… you just may not (or may?) know about it.

I’ve had someone take something that I said on stage seven years ago and blow it out of context in multiple public forms for years. I’ve had another person who has a vendetta out for me that takes any chance she gets to say terrible things. (Funny, she has never been a client, but I have coached two of her direct competition to multi six figures and another to almost a million….so there is that.)

I’ve even had another (what could have been) sticky situation that resulted in some crappy things being said online.

In this podcast today, I tell you it all. No hold bars. I get real, honest, and vulnerable with you. It is my hope that sharing my story allows you to see that it happens to everyone and that despite their efforts, your business can still grow to multi six or even seven figures =)

Episode 275: ?3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Episode 275: 3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Episode 275: ?3 Disruptive Ways To Respond To Inquiries To Get Results

Think about it from their shoes… when you go out looking for a service and the first person you contact responds with “Thanks for your inquiry. We will get back to you within 24 – 48hrs”, do you just sit back and wait? Or do you keep looking for other options because you have a problem that needs to be solved and now is the time you have to solve it? Chances are you keep looking, right?

Don’t be the business that takes their time and does not show they want to solve your problems. Right now is the time to step up and actually be the solution and in this week’s Podcast, I am going to show you 3 different ways you can solve a client’s problem, show you care, and maybe even upsell them as fast as possible! You are going to want to listen in on this one.

Biggest Takeaways

As the market becomes more and more volatile, it becomes more and more important to really step out there and know how to respond to prospects and lockdown leads. There is a common thing most of us do with how we allow people to contact us for services and I will tell you it can be utilized and used correctly… if you know how.

Respond to Inquiries

How do you respond to inquiries? Do you only use email? What if I told you this can be wasting time? The amount of time you spend just responding to their first question might just be what gets them to stay or not. using the different forms of contact available can create an opportunity to assist them right as they need you to. Not the next day when they are busy at work and already spoke to X amount of people… am I right?

Personal Connection

Once they are responding back to you, building a personal connection is vital! This does not only help you truly solve their problem but it will create trust in you and your business to provide the best services you can without having to “sell yourself”. Contact them in a way that shows you did stop to think about what they need and how you can help, making it about them and their pet instead of about you and your business.

Show Highlights

  • How do you respond  [6.14]
  • How to land the client as quickly as possible [12.07]
  • Different forms of contact that show you care [18.55]

Episode 274: 3 Reasons Why Sales is Super Important In your Pet Business in 2022

 

Are you prepared? 2022 may have a lot in store for your pet business. But… do you know how to approach it so it goes in your favor? There is going to be some turbulence along the way but with the right support and by taking the right steps you can make 2022 work in your favor. It is so important to learn how to sell right now so you can overcome any stepping stones that come your way. I am going to be there to tell you how to do it and most importantly WHY. The why in the whole thing has such a large play and today we are going to talk about it.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Become the solution and learn how to establish and define your business. As the economy changes and becomes more and more volatile people start to have more problems. What they need right now is for you to solve them and show them the value you can provide during these hard times.

 

How Are You Preparing Your Business

If you have been staying up to date on my Podcast I am sure you are aware of how much the market is changing right now…. but does your office manager know? What about your social media manager? Do you have plans in place for how your business is going to stay on top of the economy? Now is the time to prepare your business for these changes.

 

Be The Solution

Start asking yourself the right questions. How does your sales process make people feel? Are they supported and cared for? Do you solve their problems and offer solutions? If you are just throwing prices at them and waiting for them to decide how they want to solve their problem then you are not selling. To be the solution you need to talk and connect with them really understand their problem and provide value with your solution.

Episode 273: Are You An Order Taker Or A Problem Solver?

 

Do you know how to identify if you are an order taker or a problem solver? In this week’s podcast, I am going to show you how to break out of some of these bad habits and come out on top of your business as the problem solver you want to be.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Where do you stand as the business world continues to change? Are you moving with the changes and sitting back and blending in? Over the next few months, I am going to teach you how to stay with the times and continue to push your revenue to the levels you dream of.

 

It Is Time To Become A Problem Solving Consultant

I know most of you would say no if I asked you if you are ready to start consulting but I know most of you are ready to start increasing your profits. I am going to teach you how to start being a consultant instead of selling. The climate is changing and you need to know how to maintain and increase your revenue.

 

Problem Solver VS Order Taker

Have you slipped down the path to being an order taker? Identifying where you and even your employees stand in the business as an order taker or a problem solver can drastically help you. The first step is learning where you stand in the sales process. Do you reach out and have an emotional conversation with someone who needs your services or do you just ask them how you can help? Once you know where you stand it is on to training your employees.

 

 

Sales puts people on the other side of the table, Problem-solving puts you both on the same side

  • Are you ready to start selling? [7.17]
  • Identify if you are an order taker [18.32]

Have you asked for help or reached out to a supportive community? All these questions can help you change your mindset and see where something might be going wrong. This is your business and you have the control to change anything you need to.

 

The Mindset You Need

We can do this together and make the changes that you need to get you where you want with your business.

Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Business Coaching Calls

Episode #271: Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Coaching Calls


Lessons and Behind the Scenes of 5 Business Coaching Calls

 

Think about a time when you had a problem and you wanted to reach out for advice and then you thought… “Who would I even ask? How do I even find somebody to ask?” The business world can feel so lonely it’s hard to know where to go when you are stuck.

This is why I spend so much of my time fostering communities for you all. Today I am going to go over various lessons and success stories of some of my wonderful clients so you can start off 2022 on a great note.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Opening yourself up to new communities and people on the struggles of your business can be daunting and discouraging. But it is only after you take this step can you allow for a different perspective or ideas that can propel you into the dream business you imagined when you started your business.  Talking with like-minded business owners, business coaches & finding the right processes has been key to all of my client’s amazing successes and can be the key to yours too. Listen in to the lessons and behind the scenes of 5 coaching calls.

 

Showing Faith in Feedback

It’s very hard to allow someone into the details of your business, and even harder to then have them specifically looking for things that could be improved and pointing them out to you. While this makes anyone uncomfortable, it’s important to be willing to have faith in what your support community is telling you, knowing they have your best interests at heart. A supportive community is only as useful as you are willing to let them be, step out of your comfort zone and expand the possibilities to so many lessons that can be learned.

 

Where is Your Vision for the Future?

The business world is evolving faster than ever, many businesses fall prey to this evolution for one simple reason, they lack a vision and plan for their business. You should be regularly asking yourself if you are doing enough for your staff. Are they happy with you as an Employer? What lessons can be learned? You should also know where you see your business going. In what way do you want to expand your business? The end of the year can be a great time to reflect on the past year and set some solid measurable goals for 2022.

Stop Being Offended

Episode 270: Stop Being Offended

Stop Being Offended

 

How often do you get offended? How do you feel when someone turns away when they hear your prices? Or how about when someone is always asking for a discount? Have you ever said or thought “read my website”? Business has been booming and we have learned to become pickier… however as they have many times before they will again. Things are changing. Business will slow down and we need to know exactly how to keep jumping.

 

 

Biggest Takeaways

Stop being offended by people turning away at your services, or prices, have confidence in your business. Educate them about your business and learn how you can work with new clients and prospects as the market changes.

 

Stop Being Offended, Be Educated

The market is changing and so it is time we learn what we need to do to keep jumping. Stop being offended, set it aside, and educate yourself and your clients. If they hesitate at your prices talk to them and connect with them about how your services are worth it. When someone reaches out it is because they have a problem that needs to be solved. This is an opportunity to help them and teach them why you are the right one to solve their problem.

 

How Do You Have Confidence?

How do you sell? Do you direct them to exactly what they need? How about talk about them and connect about the problem? Do you ask them how you can follow up with them? Or tell them you will follow up and when? Look at how you have confidence and show you are confident in your business and your services.

 

 

Show Highlights

  • This is an opportunity to educate not be offended [6:55]
  • Do you have confidence? [10:40]
  • What is your follow-up process? [16:53}

Do you know how to sell your pet sitting services? What if there are many things you actually need to work on that you didn’t know about that you thought were helping? And then… What if I told you that when you sell your pet sitting services, the things you feel uncomfortable about are things you should actually be confident in?

How To Identify The Different Between Sales & Marketing

Knowing the difference between sales and marketing is vital to getting clients fully signed up for your pet sitting services.  Many of us are great at getting clients in the door, sometimes sealing the deal can be the hardest part. Many of us think we sell our pet sitting services when there could be things we could have done better.

 

How To Sell Your Pet Sitting Services

When we sell our pet sitting services it always makes us feel amazing but, none of it matters without a smooth, efficient, & expandable business strategy. One vital portion of running a successful business is knowing what clients to say no to, and which ones to fight for.

What about those plans I made with my family? All these questions and thoughts run through your mind leaving you feeling overwhelmed and confused about how to handle it.

Why Did You Start?

Think about why you started your pet business in the first place. This reason alone can provide you with motivation and inspiration to set systems in play that set you up for success and allow you to make time for yourself.

 

You Have Control

This is YOUR business and you have control over it. You do not have to work for your business it needs to work for you and you have the power to make that happen. When your business works for you making time for you becomes a normal and easy to maintain.
