Business Coaching - helping Business Owners work less, make more money and get their lives back!

Small business owners today are busier than ever before, working longer hours and making less money.  The business is their life and they have no time for family or friends, let alone themselves.  Most are so stressed they have forgotton how to dream and enjoy life.

The top 3 common problems facing small business owners today:

  1. Word of mouth used to work but it’s no longer working.  There aren’t enough people coming in the door.  Yellow pages, newspaper ads, radio and TV are not working and are expensive.  Some have a web-site but it’s not bringing in new customers.  Some have paid a lot of money to search engine companies but they are still not getting increased sales.
  2. It’s so much more difficult to close customers and it takes more time.  Consumers are not spending as much as they are used to and are more resistant to impulse buys.
  3. Most business owners so busy, their business is their life and they have no time for family or friends, let alone themselves.  Many are reluctant to hire because they have been burnt in the past after training employees who have left and started a competing business.

In summary, leveraging internet marketing, automation through people or systems, higher sales conversions and effective leadership will allow the small business owner to work less, make more money and get their lives back.

Karen provides business coaching to enable small business owners to do it themselves, or full business solutions for the business owner.

                              Help for business owners seminar series:                        
                         Demystifying the online marketing confusion                       

Business owners today are faced with an overwhelming number of internet marketing options: Internet, FaceBook, Twitter, SEO optimization, Web-site, email, Google Adwords, eBooks, Blogs, keyword analysis, micro-niches, web traffic, page rankings, auto-responders, LinkedIn, search engines, landing pages, opt-ins etc.

With so many options, and some free, some cost thousands of dollars to implement which, when implemented incorrectly brings no value, it is not surprising that many small business owners are still not online today or getting any leads from their existing web-site.  However the few small business owners who have figured this out are doing well in this economy, some are doubling or tripling their sales.

Which ones are right for you?  How do they work with your offline marketing efforts?
