You’ll love the results!

You have an amazing business and want others to know all about it. Yes?

So, what’s your answer, when someone asks you…’What do you do?’

Your first words need to hook them into wanting more.

Now try this…

I help you discover easy and proven ways to _______(in my case: Grow your ideal audience – Love and serve your audience. And help guarantee the future health and success of your online business.)

Your marketing message has to be in all of your content. Reaching your ideal customer and pulling them in.

Now is when you need a clear marketing message to help you easily say what creates that desire in your audience to want more from you.

So keep focused on an awesome marketing message. Share that message in different ways in all your marketing content.

How do you craft a marketing message for success? With the reminder that: The #1 thing your audience wants is…


  • Are you speaking to your ideal audience? 
  • Do you know their pain?
  • Speak to their problems. Then start with one main problem to focus on.
  • Stand out from your competition.
  • Position yourself as their solution.
  • How are your results unique?
  • What’s in it for them?
  • Practice, re-write and continue the process.

Because when you know your message is sensational when you can say and feel this…“Our customers are loyal to us right up until the second somebody offers them a better service,” Amazon CEO Bezos says. “And I love that. it’s super-motivating for us.”

5 Secrets to Getting Started:

1. Explain exactly what your business is within the first thirty seconds.

Many entrepreneurs waste valuable time giving loads of data, background, their processes, and other info—all the while listeners, and prospective clients, are left scratching their heads thinking “What does this business actually DO?” and “What’s in it for me?”

2. Tell your audience who your clients are and what you do quickly.

Say this in your message out loud, on your sales pages, on your profiles, anywhere you can think of – you want people to be clear.

Ex:  ‘I help Small Businesses, Entrepreneurs, and Direct Sales Leaders who are struggling to get more new clients and want more freedom from their businesses and lives.’

Try this on a few people, practice. See if it creates confusion or interest. You want to create curiosity for your listeners.

3.  Explain, quickly, why your clients need you.

In other words, what is their pain? 

Ex:  ‘I specialize in training and managing business pages for small businesses to grow successful Facebook, blogging, and list building solutions. Helping them learn how to attract more, and better paying, clients online.

4. Explain why you are the ONE to make this happen.

Focus on your solutions…Communicate the benefits and results clients get when working with you helping to position your business as a relevant answer to your clients’ want and needs. 

Ex:  ‘Helping businesses discover simple choices to transforming goals into dreams.’

5. Knowing who you are talking to, who is your ideal client, makes this whole a lot easier.

First, who do you want to be talking to and how can you narrow your audience down to a niche?

Why would you want a niche?

Knowing your niche: Either the type of situation you solve in your business (If you are a health coach – is it weight, or is it an exercise and eating program that you help with?) and the type of person you work with.

Your ideal clients…well, they want to see that you can inspire them with your vision for them—not just the processes of what you do.

 Exercises to help you do this…

  1.  Write out the results clients get when they purchase a product or service from you.
    1. Ex: My clients get peace of mind.
    2. Why do they want peace of mind?
      1. Ex: So that they can feel …

 Give your presentation with confidence and enthusiasm.

Let your marketing message show who you serve, the solutions you offer and share your brilliance. Leading you to reach your potential level of success in your business.

Because business is difficult.

I know from experience that attraction power doesn’t happen until it clicks in with you! 

This is when your own emotion comes through and they start getting your compelling message of how you can help.

For this reason, when you communicate what you do for potential clients you’ll start understanding how to communicate even better what your offer and ca start helping them say “yes” to your offerings.

    Very insightful, and easily read. I’m taking notes! Years ago someone asked me to define my ONE perfect client. When I finally did, they said, now don’t focus on some large, vague target market. Focus on that one. It helped me define what my business really did and even where I wanted to go. Thanks for some great tips.
