Episode 15: Top 8 Reasons Why Women Fail Using Social Media + Major Announcement!
They said the truth will set you free but first it will hurt like hell and then it'll help you heal. I always want to be positive but I'd be doing you a disservice if I didn't acknowledge the struggles real women face when it comes to social media. People like to glamorize social media. This is why so many people jump on social media to grow their businesses and so many people fail :( Ever heard someone say "all you gotta do is post your website and people will buy from you?" Or "just keep posting, they'll come?" Realizing now that was a pile of garbage, right? Not as easy as they make it seem. Especially when you're doing it on your own. Yea, been there. Done that. Hated it. Joining social media is the easy part. Making money on social media --- now that's a different story. Here are the top 8 reasons why women either struggle or fail using social media in their businesses: Listen carefully and tell me if either one describes you. Be honest. Lying to yourself won't get you anywhere. 1) Not consistent 2) Talking to the wrong people 3) You don't have an actual marketing strategy 4) You're worried about the wrong thing 5) Only focused on social media 6) Spreading yourself too thin 7) You haven't done anything And the big one.... 8) Your mindset - you're too committed to your comfort zone and you're afraid to fail. You continue to do the same things day in and day out just so you can say you actually did something --- even though it's not yielding the best results. It's the definition of insanity. Things aren't just going to autocorrect itself. If you've been showing up consistently on Facebook Live or posting religiously on Facebook/Instagram and your audience hasn't grown, there's something wrong. Something isn't working. You're committing to failure by trying to avoid it. Are you ready to stop playing it small? Are you ready to step up and step in to who you were meant to be? Get eyes on your business?

Episode 14: Pinterest Makes it Easier for People to Purchase Your Products
Pinterest Is Making it Easier for People to Buy YOUR Products If you have a product-based business or sell physical good, listen up! This podcast is for you :) Social commerce is very big! If you've never heard of the term, it is when social media meets e-commerce --- when people purchase items on social media. Over the past few months, we've seen some brands implement augmented reality (AR). Online shopping is very, very big. One of the newest features Pinterest rolled out was the "try-it on" feature. Try-it on allows you to try on different lipsticks or different makeup products before purchasing. This is very important and very helpful as well. Pinterest states that 89% of people on Pinterest use it for purchase inspiration. Do you understand that BUYING power??? It is ABSOLUTELY incredible! With that being said, Pinterest has done several things to make it easier for people to shop. It works. Why? Because people....like...EASY! One of the features they rolled out was the "Shop This Look" or shoppable pins. About a year ago, they also introduced the new "Catalog" feature which allows brands/businesses to upload their inventory or product catalog on the Pinterest interface to make it easier for customers to buy. You may have seen this before when you visit a brand's page. You'll see a "Shop" tab right underneath the brand's account name and description. For an example of this, look up Sephora. One of the major drawbacks of this Shop tab was that it was only on THEIR business account. If a person has never heard of that business, and that business hasn't optimized their pins/account, they're probably not on that brand's profile. Meaning they will probably will not discover the brand's catalog of products. Pinterest just recently expanded this new feature.

Episode 13: How to Create Pins that Convert
As I mentioned previously, one of the ways to make money on Pinterest is by driving traffic. But driving traffic, alone, is not going to get you paid. Let's go back to our 6C Pinterest marketing strategy: Cultivate Community Curating Creating Content Converts Conversions are the name of the game. Without conversions, you don't have a business. Yea, "likes", "comments", and "shares" are cool but that's not what gets you paid! Conversions do! Conversions are when a person takes ACTION! We want our people to ACT! When you're developing your Pinterest marketing strategy, consider what your ideal customer needs to see/do in order from them to convert. Walk them through the sales process: remember the Know, Like, and Trust factor. Sales process - AIDA Model breakdown: 1) Attention 2) Interest 3) Desire 4) Action Now we’re going to use those four factors to create a pin image that converts.

Episode 11: 2020 Is Still Your Year; 13 Ideas to Help Grow Your Business
Last week, Swae Lee did a free concert on IG 🎤 Why? Might sound silly to some but he’s continuing to show up for his people. Everyday, Coronavirus is trending on Twitter but do you know what was also trending on Twitter last night 👀 𝗦𝘄𝗮𝗲 𝗟𝗲𝗲. Do you know how many people are going to thank him for providing some type of entertainment during these times? He’s going to stay fresh in their minds and because of this, when he finally does have a concert, guess who’s going to be purchasing a ticket 🤔 This is the Law of Reciprocity. Show up for your people and they’ll show up for you. So yes it’s easy to talk about this virus everyday and even become consumed by it but don’t let this be a distraction. I’m not saying you should completely disregard it. Yes, take proper safety measures and know what’s going on in your area. You can watch the news and still handle business. I’m saying.. 𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘆 𝗳𝗼𝗰𝘂𝘀𝗲𝗱. I know it’s easy to fall out of rhythm and put your business to the side given the times but this is more reason to go even harder. You gotta be a believer to know this too shall pass 🙌🏾 And when this is all over, the folks who put their business to the side will have to play catch up when everything is back to normal. 🏃🏽♀️ This is not a vacation 🙅🏽♀️ A business in motion stays in motion. Even if you serve people face-to-face, you can do something NOW to grow your business. 𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗲’𝘀 𝗮 𝗳𝗲𝘄 𝗶𝗱𝗲𝗮𝘀 💡: - Build a stronger online presence - Learn how to use a technology/platform that you’ve always said you never had the time to learn - Analyze your numbers: figure out what’s working and what really isn’t - Systems: if you don’t have a system now, implement one to help you gain clarity and scale when you are able to operate at full capacity - Create products around your service-based business and sale products online. For example: if you have a restaurant, create a cookbook, teach people how to make recipes. Sell it! - Create lead capture pages or lead magnets - Develop an e-mail list of interested prospects so you can keep in contact with them during this time - Host online events: training, webinars, classes or even just live videos so people can keep in contact with you. If you’re a makeup artist, do an online makeup course. Have people purchase tickets to attend. - Practice your photography skills so you can take better pictures to attract your ideal audience - Create more looks or scenarios for inspiration - Create more content: blogs, videos, etc. You don’t have to release them all now, you can have at least one for each week. Create 4 and you have a month of new content 💡 - Follow up with past leads. - Get back to that email marketing system that you never figured out. Learn how to schedule emails. Use this time wisely!

Episode 10: Understanding Pin Stats
Pin stats are one of the most important analytics that you're going to find on Pinterest. They tell you if what you are doing is currently working. You can break this down to see which part of your Pinterest marketing strategy isn't working in order to improve it. For example, if you are driving traffic to your pin but they're not clicking to learn more, you know either your call-to-action isn't strong enough or you're not reaching your ideal audience. If you aren't driving any traffic to your content, you know that your keyword strategy could use some tweaking. Whenever you are marketing, you always want to look for areas of opportunity. Don't just pin and leave. Look at your stats!

Episode 2: Top 12 Reasons Why Your Pinterest Marketing Strategy Isn’t Working
Before we talk about a Pinterest marketing strategy, let’s talk about what is Pinterest first? Pinterest is a search engine. It’s meant for discovery. This is where people go to find solutions, ideas and inspiration. The internet is swarming with new content each and everyday. Think of Pinterest as “the best of the best on the internet.” It’s a way for users to bookmark what they’ve found to be helpful. What does this mean for you as an entrepreneur or marketer? If they pin your content, you are gaining credibility and authority which will strengthen your marketing strategy. Word-of-mouth advertising will always be Pinterest Marketing Strategies That Work effective! If someone is pinning your content, they’re endorsing you so their friends, family and followers can discover you as well. You are increasing your total exposure. Pinterest is the perfect way to drive traffic to your site in order to generate more leads and business. One way to get the ball rolling is to make sure that YOU are pinning your content. Currently, I average over 4 million monthly viewers per month on Pinterest with close to a 9% engagement rate! I’ve used Pinterest to drive traffic to my blog, e-commerce site, appointment booking sites, lead capture pages and even Youtube videos. The possibilities really are endless. If you’re thinking you don’t have time to learn about another social media site, trust me, I was just like you but this is where Pinterest has proven to be worth it many times over! Having a Pinterest marketing strategy is crucial! Learn more: read the blog here.

Over time, I've learned a few things about business cards: 1) 88% are thrown away 2) most people don't follow up 3) used as a crutch Here are my top 10 reasons why everyone should have a digital business card: - Cost-effective - No printing or shipping time - Update information in minutes - Easily shareable - Easily traceable - Multiple cards for multiple purposes - Easily follow up - More memorable - Become better communicator - Follow up with new contacts met via phone Wanna see my card: http://www.chicagosbeauty.com #business #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #ladyboss #bossbabe

Episode 11: Be Unapologetic
We live in a world too busy to concern themselves with your problems but quick to tell you to humble yourself. Maybe this is just my observation, but I see a lot of people saying "be humble" when they really just want you to "be quiet." When exactly are you supposed to speak up? Now let me just say there is a difference between being braggadocious and showing humility. Yet, as SOON as a person cheers or shows an ounce of confidence, it’s a problem. For the record: it is ok to celebrate your victories. You worked for them! You’ve been through Hell for them! You deserve it! Cheer on! If you sacrificed every night to work on your business and finally got your first customer.... If you quit school in order to put your kids through school and now given the opportunity to go back or watch your kids graduate... If you woke up each day, with the weight of the world on your shoulders, thought about seriously giving up and finally one day, you hear a message that says, "don't worry"...
