    How to Come Up With Content Ideas for Your Live Vides - Ep #34

    How to Come Up With Content Ideas for Your Live Vides - Ep #34

    Ever worry about running out of content for your live videos? You’ve come up with some ideas but you’re dreading your next live video because you think you’ve talked about it all.  Well, there are 3 ways that you can come up with more content ideas for your live videos and they don’t require a ton of work.
     
    Live Video | How to Come Up with Content Ideas for Your Live Videos
     
    The goal of creating content for your live videos isn’t to reinvent the wheel.  You don’t need 52 weeks of new content, you just need to make sure that your content speaks to your audience, gives them quality content and is binge-worthy.
     
     Questions from clients, prospective clients and your audience
     
    FB groups, your stories, basically any arena where you can ask questions or have questions and receive feedback from clients.  FB groups/linkedin groups- you get good info. You see good and bad advice given and you can create your own document that you can refer to when creating content.



    Topics talked about in complementary industries.
     
    A Blog, podcast or video that they’ve implemented and consider how you  can apply this to your industry and audience. I’m not suggesting you copy the exact title, idea or their content but I am suggesting that you see how the topic can be applied to your own industry and services.  Create your live video topic off of that.
     
    Repurpose Your Old Live Videos
     
    This is one of my secret weapons to never running out of content for my live videos.  Every live video that you do can be repurposed.  You can repurpose topics, points within the live video and key points and create new live videos from them.  IF you don’t have a live video repurpose an old blog, podcast episode or even a social media post.
     
    You’re always coming into new people all of the time.  Even people within your audience may need to hear something over again before it resonates.  
     
    Each month you should be planning out your live videos. That’s what I do. When I go to brain dump my topics I go through the list that I just gave you. This way you know what to talk about, how to infuse your live videos with your launches and promotions.
     
    The more you do this the easier it is to come up with content and the ideas just start flowing.
     
    Live videos aren’t going anywhere and the easier it is to come up with content the easier it will be to show up on camera. Whenever you start to panic refer to the 3 ways and you’ll get your creative juices flowing in no time.
     
    What’s your next live video topic? Share with me over on Instagram  by sending me a DM.

    How to Handle Unhappy Client Situations - Ep 32

    How to Handle Unhappy Client Situations - Ep 32

    We all love having ideal clients that sing our praises and refer business to us but what happens when there’s an issue with a client and it results with them being unhappy. 
    Brand Reputation | How to Handle Unhappy Client Situations
    It’s easy to talk about all of the good things that happen when we work with clients.  Clients that are satisfied with our services  refer others to us, and provide great testimonials which help others make the decision to work with us.  However, what happens when we have a client that is dissatisfied with our services and becomes unhappy with us?
     
    How should you respond? What should you do? What should you do when they leave you a bad review online? In this Episode of the Empirenista Business Success Podcast we’re going to discuss how to handle unhappy client situations.
    What Not to Do
    Whenever there is a mistake we can respond in two ways:
    We can get in our feelings and lash out Listen and learn from the unhappy client I don’t suggest lashing out. That’s not a good look and you don’t know who is watching you.  It could be future clients or business partnerships.  You lashing out or posting their review and your petty response online (especially on Facebook) could further hurt your brand's reputation.
    Ways to learn
    I know it’s hard, but after getting over the shock of the message from your unhappy client or reading a bad review, take a moment to reflect.  Are the concerns of your client valid? Does the truly reflect your work?
    Assess the situation
    What went wrong from the clients perspective?  What went wrong from your perspective and your team's perspective?  What were those areas: breakdown in communication, missed deadlines, failure to notify clients, missed emails (by both), lack of communication,  Could there have been a solution where both parties were happy? Going forward:
    Do you need better systems in place: Communication Email Follow Up Contracts Client expectations Update your SOP’s Communicate with your team the new systems and procedures Clear language on website and sales calls with new clients.  This also prevents scope creep and misunderstandings Sticking to your ideal client.  Maybe this person wasn’t a good fit Keep in mind that these are the experiences that customers experienced.  Whether true or not.  Something happened for them to be unhappy and the goal is to resolve the situation as amblicly as you can.
    Of course the goal is to only work with your ideal customer but you may have one or two non-ideal customers creep in.  Kindly terminate the relationship and move forward.
    You’ve got the best services and give superior services.  With these tips you’re now prepared to handle an unhappy client.
    Thanks for listening!
