Are you a Professional Service Provider, B2B Micro or Small Business Ownerwho cares deeply about the impact you make with your clients but you're frustrated that your income is not representative of the work you do or the value you give?
I don't mean to be rude but the chances are your marketing is at best-forgettable or at worst-BORING!
Now, I'm not suggesting you have to go all Richard Branson with outlandish PR stunts but you do need to be putting a memorable distance between you and your competitors to ensure you stand out.
When you take the time to do this really well, your communications will speak directly to your ideal client, their problems AND what they want to achieve. They will feel like you are reading their mind (which in a way you are)
The reason why most marketing is, quick frankly, a snooze fest, is that most business owners don't take the time or do the deep thinking required to get this right.
I'll guarantee you, without this, your ideal client will not be able to differentiate you from your competitors.
Just in case you hadn't noticed, you're operating in a very crowded marketplace.
Therefore your marketing message has to be crystal clear as to why you are the right choice for your ideal clients to spend their hard-earned cash on.
Without that clarity, within ten minutes they won't even remember who you are, let alone return to buy from you.
THE MOST Important Activity You Need To Focus On Is Creating A Profitable Prospect Pipeline
To do that, you need to take things off your TO DO LIST not add more to it.
Business isn't rocket science. It boils down to these three things.
Create a community of your target market.
Develop a relationship with that community
Present relevant offers to that community.
If you are doing anything in your business that doesn't fall into that remit, you're off track and wasting very precious time, energy and probably a lot of money.
One caveat, however,
YOU MUST COMPLETE STEP 1 BEFORE ATTEMPTING STEP 2!
Now you can get clear on WHO your target market is and HOW you help them will allow you to focus on doing the right things in the right order and massively free up your To-Do list forever!
3. Let Go Of Your Inner Sales Critic
Whatever business you are in, like it or not,you are in SALES!
Now it may be your inner Sales Snob that creates a discomfort with selling or it could perhaps you're trying to live up to past successes. Both of these can block you in the here and now.
If so, you're leaving a lot of money on the table for your competitors to the bank instead of you.
Call it what you like. Business development, client enrollment, customer transactions, it's all selling at the end of the day.
Therefore if you are serious about growing your business, you need to get serious about sales and let go of your sales snob/impostor syndrome/living in the past ASAP!
By applying my Sales Without Selling, you enable your future customers to buy from you safely and confidently. We transform the selling process into a buying process instead!
Therefore the pressure of being sold to is removed from your future customer or client and the pressure for you to sell to them is lifted from you. I call this Stress-Free Selling. If you would like my help with this, book an informal call.

Since 1982, there is not much I haven’t tackled
From Direct Sales in Home Improvements (that business grew to a £10M revenue in the UK) A Health & Nutrition product distribution (that grew to $3.5 million worldwide)
A small Early Years Centre I ran from home around my small children and my Business Consultancy practice.
The latter two I ran from my dining room and conservatory which provided me with six-figure incomes within a year of setting up.
Since 2013, I've worked with 100s of Entrepreneurs around the world and my focus is entirely on my client's success.

Meet My Client Cath Dhanjal,Highly Sought After Marketing &PR Consultant
The Answer’s director, Catherine Dhanjal, has been part of Carie’s Mastermind cohort (100k Masterplan & 100K Club) for many years and credits Carie’s wealth of skills, knowledge and experience as being a fundamental part of their success, providing clarity and invaluable insight.
"I looked very carefully at other options before choosing to work with Carie and I simply couldn't find anyone else with her experience, gift for simplifying and clarifying, and her ability to also bring the wisdom of leading management thinkers into her programmes.
I describe the programme I'm doing with Carie as a mini MBA and I'd thoroughly recommend it!
Unlike many group programmes, I work in small, live Cohorts to ensure you get over the finishing line and get maximum value from your course.

Meet my client Carla Prout,a Multi Award-Winning Content Creator
"Don't spend years trying to figure it all out on your own, when you can have an expert that will light the way for you, helping you and your business grow together."
Before working with Carie I thought I had a good understanding of how marketing my business worked. Yet everything I put all my effort and money into continued to fall flat.
From my initial meeting with Carie, she helped me to see clearly the areas I was totally missing. My Strategy was basically non-existent and I had huge gaps within my client journey.
Carie is an absolute wonder to work with, being both flexible, supportive, encouraging and enlightening. Her understanding of marketing is unrivalled and I always look forwards to what she will teach me next.
If you are trying to grow your business, extend your reach, update your marketing strategy - or create an entirely new one, Carie is the perfect partner and the best investment I have made for my business.
