    #22 Systemise Your Business & Release That Ball & Chain

    #22 Systemise Your Business & Release That Ball & Chain

    When you start up your business it's so exciting isn’t it…  You’re passionate and enthusiastic and nothing is going to stop your business from being a success and providing you with the life you’re dreaming of.


    As the business develops, you find there are certain areas of the business you enjoy more than others.  You spend more of your time on these and excel in them.  But what this means in reality is that there are other areas that you bypass and don’t invest into.  They’re a source of stress and drain time from your already busy day.  You very quickly become a prisoner and slave to your own business!


    In this vital coaching session Craig explains the importance of ‘TST’ and why each element is important in building your business to give you the time freedom you dreamed of.  Without ‘TST’ you could get stuck, as he did for over ten years, being a busy fool with the pressure of the whole world on your shoulders wondering why on earth you decided to start a business in the first place!


     


    Here is what you will learn from this podcast:

    What TST stands for and the formula T+S=T.

    The three stages of business growth and how to work out which one you are currently in.

    Why it doesn’t matter whether you are currently in stage one or two – you need to be focussed on stage three.

    The Cycle of Business – what it looks like in stages one and two, and what it needs to look like for stage three to be achieved.

    Why systems may not be sexy but are vitally important to your business.

    How to get your business to the point of being saleable.

    The three steps to flowing out your business processes.

    The three types of software you can use to help systemise your business processes.

    What automation is and how it can help save you hours of time.

    How Zapier can link different pieces of software together to make your automations even more powerful, saving you even more time.

    The difference between abdicating to a member of your team and delegating to them – and why one will cost you even more time and money than not employing them in the first place.

    How to create a procedure manual and what it should include.

    Three different software options for screen recording.

    Why scripts are vital for your team and business.


    The original vision you had for your business is still there in your mind.  All your dreams of being a success may be slightly jaded, but you know exactly what it would mean to you.


    The way to stop the roundabout and get off is not to give in… it’s to apply ‘TST’ and have a business which is systemised, automated and so proceduralised that any new member of your team can be trained quickly and easily and know exactly what is expected of them at all times.


    Your business can then run without you.


    No more checking emails and taking phone calls on your days off or round the pool on holiday when you should be with your family.  No more worrying about what is happening and whether your customers are getting the right standard of care and attention.


    Follow the simple steps in this video and watch your business change.  It will grow in a sustainable way, scaling operations up easily and simply, with the whole team on the same page.


    Achieve time freedom… release the ball and chain… and no longer be a prisoner of your own business!  Isn’t that the dream!

    #21 How To Generate Leads From Video Marketing

    #21 How To Generate Leads From Video Marketing

    Most people realise that using video for marketing purposes is growing at an incredible rate.  Most know that it is the right thing to do for their business.  So why are most people still not shooting videos?


    YouTube is the 2nd biggest search engine on the planet.  


    People will watch a video for far longer than they’ll read an article or social media post.  They also watch them at a time that’s convenient for them to do their research, which may be outside your working hours.  Videos create brand awareness and they are the most shared content on social media.


    Craig started using video marketing for his previous business back in 2010!  And he’s never looked back.  In this coaching session he explains exactly how to use video marketing to generate more leads for your business and what equipment you’ll need with only a tiny budget.


     


    Here is what you will learn from this podcast:
     
    Where 18-49 year olds hang out rather than watching TV

    Who earned over $30m on YouTube at the age of just 9 in 2020

    The benefits of video marketing for you as a business owner

    Why you probably aren’t shooting videos right now

    How to become a video influencer

    What your content MUST include

    The two types of video you should shoot

    How to create a vlog

    How to use video as social proof for prospects

    How to get a YouTube channel

    What equipment you need for under £100

    The best editing software, for all abilities and all budgets

    The six ways you can repurpose one video


     


    Limiting beliefs stop business owners forging ahead.  Worrying about what others will think, does exactly the same.


    The internet is flooded with businesses in every industry and sector and so you really have to be disruptive and stop people scrolling past.


    The way to do that is with video.  Video which positions you as an expert and shows your authority in your area of specialisation.


    If you want leads to flow to you, shooting regular videos is THE way to do it.  Its not expensive or complicated.  In many cases its completely free and will only take a small amount of time.


    Just imagine being known as the go-to person, the person people want to engage with and work with.  By putting regular video content out there, that’s exactly what will happen to you.


    No more excuses.  Watch this coaching session and get shooting video!

Motivational Speaker and Practical Coach in 1!

Engaging, motivating and actionable. Craig delivers great value in all areas of “This is where to look for the problems”, “This is how to improve“ and “You definitely can do it“, with a healthy dose of “Don’t be fooled, listening wont do FA if you don’t take action”. Recommend a listen no matter how exp you are. Thanks, Craig!

Absolute gem after gem

These podcast are full of fantastic information aimed at businesses owners. Craig has a way of breaking down different subjects into manageable tasks which I fully understand. I can’t recommend them enough. And would also highly recommend joining the Elite business academy Facebook page. So much high quality and free information. It’s a no brained if you want to improve not only your business but yourself.
Thank you Craig and team EBA

Tony@Balanced Coaching ,

Craig speaks my language

Great podcast, whoever you are learning from it's important that they speak in a way that you can understand (That's my experience), I've listened to laods of marketing experts, but they have spoken in marketing jargon that I've not understood. Craig has been able to break it down into a language that I can understand and I will be using. Thanks Craig. Amd if you've read this and you're still unsure, then just give the guy a call and then make your mind up.
