    E146 Jessica Freeman & The unexpected benefits of creating a Niche

    E146 Jessica Freeman & The unexpected benefits of creating a Niche

    Highlights from this episode:
    1. What happens when you don't pay attention to the numbers?! You just might get a very pleasant surprise!
    2. The unexpected benefits of identifying your niche - which she wishes she had done "much earlier" than she did:
    collaboration opportunities content creation speaking to your ideal client understanding the platforms they use in their business - this is especially important for Jessica  3. She tells us "I have a degree in design - not a business degree. I didn't get any training in how to run a business." Jessica has a unique perspective on the role of business coaches and others for specific projects in her business.
    and much more
    Jessica Freeman started her business Jess Creatives more than 10 years ago - designing T-shirts as a college project. She charged a whopping $10 + she always got one of the T-shirts!
    Fast forward to when she was able to quit her corporate job when she realised she was making more money designing websites and providing copy as a side hustle - than she was even being paid in her job!
    That's when she tells us "Pay attention to the numbers!"

    E143 How do I get more client referrals?

    E143 How do I get more client referrals?

    The latest data from the 2021 Sales Enablement from Hubspot report says:
    * 84% of buyers now kick off their buying process with a referral.
    * 9 out of 10 buying decisions are made with peer recommendations.
    * 92% of buyers trust referrals from people they know
    Here is the one that I find most staggering ... and is the reason for this episode:
    After a positive experience 83% of customers would be happy to provide a referral - that's good to know! 
    BUT!! no-one is asking them for referrals -- so, just 29% of customers end up giving a referral.
    Call me crazy ... this seems like such a waste of opportunity, isn't it?
    That means that 54 out of every happy customers who could refer your business or recommend you - are not being asked.
    Today I give you the steps to change this in your business - right now.
    You can change this. Know what you need to do, take action and be consistent
    Listen now .... and let me know what action you will take today.
    My guess is that you are here because you want to build and grow a successful and profitable business
    I’m here to help you.

    E141Mindset Shift from Compete to Collaborate

    E141Mindset Shift from Compete to Collaborate

    What happens when another business like yours opens up nearby?
    Whether a new business opens up physically near you or in the online world - no matter what industry you are in, there will always be others doing what you do and offering what you offer.
    How do you think about it?
    Do you view them as a direct competitor?
    Do you view them as indirect competition? and view it as being helpful and healthy for your whole industry?
    In todays episode I talk about some real examples of similar businesses being physically right there beside other businesses in the same industry.
    I ask the question "What if we take a collaborative approach?"
    I believe you will find todays episode interesting and thought provoking. I welcome your comments - please email me ingrid@healthynumbers.com.au or come join us in Healthy Numbers Profit Lab FB Group - and if FB not your "thing" I totally get it, I'm a huge fan of LinkedIn - so come connect with me there, if not already.

Wonderful podcast for coaches running their own business

Ingrid has the knack of asking insightful questions that generates rich focused dialogue that is very conversational and easy to listen to and stay focused. She doesn’t digress or lose focus so they cover a lot of important relevant info that helps me approach my business development and management better. Thankyou Ingrid for your knowledge, focus and consistency. And such a variety of successful business owners at different stages of their business makes every podcast interesting.

Love it!

I think everyone can teach you something and this podcast has shown me a new way of looking at business and life and so many varied industries. Love it! Ingrid does such a beautiful job of getting the most out of her interviewees and has such a warm way about her. Love that they’re short enough too to be doable weekly.
