Can Women Succeed in Business Online?

Can Women succeed in business?

Of course they can and of course you can, however, there are some foundational keys to doing so.

 

I’m hosting a training series on “How to launch and grow your business online.”  It’s a No Cost opportunity for you and other dynamic women. I’m going to take a look at the aspects of business that most online entrepreneurs fail to consider – and that can spell disaster whether you’re just getting started or you’ve been around for years. Just keep in mind – this is not meant to scare you away from starting, but rather to make sure you have all the information you need to build a strong, sustainable business from the get-go.

The one area that really seems to stump new entrepreneurs is marketing. It’s true no matter what your business model, but service providers have a particularly difficult time with it.

Imagine you’ve just begun a new business as a VA (virtual assistant). You’ve got a few clients, work is humming along well, you’re busy, sometimes even overwhelmed (we’ll get to that issue later), but you’re making a good living, so you’re happy. All your work time is spent on other people’s projects, though, leaving little time for your own work, and none at all for going out to find new business.

Of course, your schedule is full, so why would you want to be seeking out new work anyway?

Because at any time, one or more clients might just stop needing you. Maybe they close up shop, or sell, or hire a cousin to do the work you’re doing for them. Then what will you do?

This is exactly the situation many service providers find themselves in – and it’s a bad spot to be in, let me tell you. Suddenly the money has dried up, and since you haven’t been doing any marketing, you don’t have anywhere to turn for work.

You might be saying “that would be a great problem to have but I need more clients/customers.”

The answer is to always be marketing – when you’re starting out you may be soliciting new clients/customers however, it’s not actively soliciting new clients when your schedule is full, but at least staying in touch so when you lose a client you have a way to gain another quickly. One of the best ways to do that is to build your email list. Then, when the inevitable happens, you have a list of people you can email in an instant to say, “Hey, I have 12 hours a month available – who needs some help?”

Remember, you need to spend some time every single day working to market your business. If you don’t, it will eventually stop working for you, and you’ll end up right back at the beginning again.
