Where to start with online visibility

As we head into the new year - there’s one question on all of our minds:

How do I get seen by more people to grow my business in 2018?

I totally understand your struggle and am here to help you get back to basics, simplify your aim and help you put together an actionable strategy to grow your visibility over the next few months.

Before we move on to the big leagues, let’s start at the beginning with...

OUT OF OVERWHELM: How to condense your workload

OUT OF OVERWHELM: How to condense your workload

I tend to put way too much pressure on myself in my business. I have 25 tabs open at once and wake up feeling stressed.

Did I schedule that post? Have I written my newsletter? What livestreams will I do this week? Has my Pinterest grown at all? I need to go pick up paper towels. Has the dog gone out today?

Can you relate?

It can feel so overwhelming. It makes me want to just disappear to Costa Rica for a few….years.

So, before we all sail away, I’d love to chat with you about some incredible things I’ve learned lately about multitasking. The biggest takeaway?

The brain HATES it.

How To Build Relationships TO Get Your Dream Peeps On Your Show

How To Build Relationships TO Get Your Dream Peeps On Your Show

When I decided I wanted to start the “Visibility Vixen” podcast, I had no idea what I was doing. But I knew I needed guests. I wrote down all of my biggest dreams guests – people like Mariah Coz, Melissa Pharr + Adrienne Dorison. These were the ‘pipe dreams’ of mine – ones I knew wouldn’t come onto the show now, but maybe a year or so in.

But, how was I supposed to contact them? What did I need to do?

Fortunately, growing up in the tv/film world taught me a lot about the dreaded word…NETWORKING. I know, it makes you want to barf, but it’s a bare necessity in any field – especially online entrepreneurship. Especially if you’re not regularly going to events. So, how do you stand out?

HERE ARE SOME LITTLE TIPS THAT MAY INSPIRE YOU ON HOW TO CONTACT YOUR DESIRED PODCAST GUESTS:

Am I Ready To Start Podcasting?

Am I Ready To Start Podcasting?

There are hundreds of people out there that can tell you exactly how to get started podcasting. What software to use, where to host it, how to book guests…but that’s not the first step.

Seriously.

The first steps are all internal + are the vital groundwork to starting a successful podcast that will not only build your audience + connections, but actually make a difference in the world.

After all – if you’re only doing this for notoriety + money, you’re in the wrong place!

How To Be Less Terrified Of Livestreaming

How To Be Less Terrified Of Livestreaming

Your palms are sweating. Your mouth suddenly has gone dry. You are shaking like crazy from nerves + are trying to take deep breaths, but aren’t calming down. You may have even run screaming around your block buck naked.

This is the average experience for Livestreaming – especially if you don’t have any prior experience in front of the camera.

I run a week-long challenge called “Comfy On Camera”, + I see this every time. Powerful, amazing, incredible women hitting “go live” for the first time, all the while being absolutely, positively, TERRIFIED.

You’ll hear most coaches in this area say that you need to practice more, that eventually the fear will leave. etc. Well…how do I put this kindly? THIS WILL NEVER WORK.

Designing A Workflow That Will Keep You On Schedule + Relaxed

Designing A Workflow That Will Keep You On Schedule + Relaxed

The most overwhelming aspect to online entrepreneurship is your schedule/workflow.

WHY?

  1. You're subscribed to a lot of other entrepreneurs + get distracting emails daily
  2. It's hard to gauge time to seriously sit down + complete 1 task {bc 2 others are on you mind as well}
  3. What system can possibly help you control all of the wildness going on??

The first step is the total cliche of admitting you have a problem. That you're not getting anything done because you're bouncing around your day with shiny object syndrome. My cat, Eli, has a similar struggle. {he's meowing at me right now}

 

SO...WHAT TO DO?

I suggest finding a planner that specifically compliments your thinking process when it comes to accomplishing tasks. Until this happened for me, I was really struggling. Copying the same notes form my binder to my big calendar to my notepad...it was endless + took up WAY too much time.

The days of simply sending out a newsletter are now in our rear view mirror. Our audiences are getting smarter, they want information more quickly + they crave value. 

So, once you've created your beautiful lead magnet + delivered it to them, what next? Hopefully you have a higher priced product you'd like for them to purchase, but how do you get them there?

THE ANSWER IS AN EMAIL SEQUENCE.

How To Lay Out Your Homepage To Build Your Credibility + Increase Your Opt-Ins

How To Lay Out Your Homepage To Build Your Credibility + Increase Your Opt-Ins

Publishing your website can be a tedious + frustrating process. I've seen it take months, if not a full year, to get it off the ground.

Of course, some of that is taken up by design + coding {if you're using a platform like WordPress} - but a lot of it is because of lack of clarity.

What should I put on my Work With Me Page? What about my About Page?

AND, THE BIGGEST HEADACHE - WHAT DO I PUT ON MY HOMEPAGE? 

Our homepage can be such a tricky blockage because, if you're anything like me, it can feel impossible to have the understanding of how to make yourself shine quickly + effectively in such a small space.
