    Georgee Low | Your business and life will flourish with this tool

    In today’s episode of the MORE podcast, Ricardo is joined by Georgee Low, they discuss a method that Georgee has successfully used to help her clients make difficult decisions called Why Discovery. 
    What is Why Discovery?
    It is based on the work of Simon Sinek, and it gives you a decision making filter for everything that you do.  George recommends this method to anyone who wants to create a business that really matters to the world.  The process
    Analyze 3-6 moments in your life that were truly impactful, a moment that you can really feel. Look for common themes from those moments and then create a statement.  This statement will help you to recognize your values, which should be actionable.  Use these actionable values to drive your decision making process.  Who can benefit from Why Discovery?
    Individuals who are struggling with finding their purpose and feel like they can’t articulate what is missing.  Those who want their career to be about more than just making money.  People who lack motivation.  How is this different from other similar processes?
    Oftentimes people think of purpose as WHAT you are doing, this process is about WHY you are doing it.  How can we ensure this works for you?
    For it to be useful, you have to use it. It takes effort. Georgee recommends that you write down your big why statement and review it at the end of each day.  Once you create a habit, it becomes natural.  Georgee’s book and podcast recommendations

    Valerie K | These tools could increase your ROI by 40x

    Valerie K | These tools could increase your ROI by 40x

    Email marketing can increase your ROI by 40x. On today’s episode of MORE podcast, Ricardo talks with Valerie K, an email marketing specialist and manager who helps strategize and develop email marketing collateral. They discuss two email service providers, Mailchimp, and Constant Contact, and how you can utilize them to improve your organization. 
    How did Valerie get into her role?
    She was a teacher for several years, and she was a professional development coach at her elementary school. While great with students and parents, she was beginning to get burnt out. A mentor teacher helped her get a position at a school in Abu Dhabi. She traveled the world and learned a lot. She made traveling a part of her lifestyle, and she learned that she had the power to learn and accomplish anything. She took some free coding courses and decided she wanted a change of career. She enrolled in a coding boot camp and was exposed to tech. After graduating from the coding boot camp, she quickly dove into email marketing. What are Mailchimp and Constant Contact?
    In Valerie’s opinion, these are two of the easiest email service providers to use. They are intuitive and have many templates already in place.  It’s good to have great imagery in your emails. Try using free image sites such as pixels to add beautiful images to your emails.  These services will help you to craft a great subject line. They give you tips on how to increase your open rate. Great analytics. These ESP’s give you great analytics so that you can improve your email marketing by knowing what works and what doesn’t.  Where do you get email contacts to add to your ESP?
    If you have a website, you can add a pop-up that prompts users to submit their email and join your email list.  Social media is a great way to get contacts.  If your business is more in-person, offer discounts in exchange for email addresses. Use a QR code to make it easier. Some people buy lists, but Valerie doesn’t recommend it because of legal issues and the risk of getting put in spam.  It’s not about how many people you have, it’s about having people who really want to hear from you. Quality over quantity.  Who would benefit the most from using an email service provider? 
    Small business owners. They can use these ESP’s to develop your email voice and connect with your customers.  Influencers. It is a great idea for influencers to be able to connect with their followers away from social media as well.  Most everyone should be investing in email marketing.  How are these ESP’s different from others?
    They are intuitive. They are easy to use for individuals who aren’t comfortable coding. If you aren’t very tech-savvy you are better off using Mailchimp and Constant Contact.  They have simple layouts that make it easy to style your emails.  What can users expect once they start using these services? 
    Figure out how to use the program and ease yourself in. Start small and make sure you are saying things that are meaningful.  Mailchimp and Constant Contact integrate well with your website along with Canva.  They are also more affordable than other email service providers.  Last advice from Valerie and Ricardo
    Optimize your subject lines. The subject lines are gold.  Avoid too many graphics. Imagine you are writing a note to a friend. Something personal.  Valerie’s book and podcast recommendations

    Patty K | Have You Heard of This 7-Stage System?

    Patty K | Have You Heard of This 7-Stage System?

    If you can’t sell, you can’t make money. So, what’s the secret to building an effective source of leads ready to purchase? In today’s episode of the MORE podcast, Ricardo is joined by marketing consultant Patty K to learn how to implement a 7-stage marketing system from Duct Tape Marketing capable of helping any business in any industry gain more sales.
    Patty specializes in working with advisors and experts, selling their time to clients. 
    She helps get their content out of their heads and into the world so people can see how it’s valuable. She started as a self-employed software developer but was stuck with the sales and marketing elements - getting people to buy her code. Patty became fascinated with marketing and soon learned the 7-stage system from Duct Tape Marketing to help clients develop more sales. Think about marketing not as a funnel but as an hourglass.
    Marketing doesn’t end when you have a client - current clients are your best clients. The most high-level elements of the hourglass are the completed clients who can refer and buy again. Four of the stages people go through - Know, like, trust, and try. Put yourself inside the head of the marketing person and put yourself out there, whether that’s social media, advertising, and other ways to make sure people know who you are. Have people form an opinion about you:
    Utilize reviews, testimonials, and indicators of trust as professional designators to give people a reason to trust you. Consider offering a trial period or a limited quantity of functionality on a site to encourage people to purchase. People don’t buy what you sell; they buy who you are.
    Everybody can use the system. It’s an absolute requirement for people like trusted advisors, but restaurants and other industries are also missing out. Many marketing funnel methodologies aren’t complete because they stop at the initial sale. Marketing professionals often put too much weight on the top of the funnel. Practical applications with the seven stages:
    Look at the seven steps and determine which facet of the stages you’re neglecting. Is there a way to get more positive reviews or variables to supplement the neglected stages? It works well with other tools and systems. Often the change required is the messaging within the system. Patty’s parting advice? If you want to be successful in marketing, get in the head of the person buying your product and present what you do as the solution they’re looking for. To learn more about the methodology, visit Duct Tape Marketing’s website at https://ducttapemarketing.com/ for more information and free resources. If you’re a trusted advisor, visit PattyK.com for resources and materials specific to your industry to help you find and retain more clients.
