Marketing Mentor 1:1 Program
Not attracting all the business and clients you want and need?
You can be a better marketer of your services and it can be easier than you think.
There are five main challenges in marketing a business:
If you can do all of those things, you don't need marketing mentoring.
However, if you could do better, perhaps you need a little help. Many salon/day spa owners struggle with marketing. They are not sure how it works, where to start or what to do.
Perhaps you've tried a number of marketing activities with mixed results. Or maybe your "word-of-mouth pipeline" has dried up and you don't know where to find your next clients. It could be you know what to do and you just don't get around to it. You need some direction and some support.
If any of the above is true, you've come to the right place.
I work with salon/day spa owners and managers professionals who are serious about taking their businesses to the next level. They realize the only way they're going to survive and thrive is by developing, implementing, and practicing better marketing.
What You Need to be Successful at Growing Your Business
I believe you need only three things to be successful at marketing.
The first thing you need is commitment. You must really want to take your business to new heights. Ideally your business should be more than a living, but a calling, something you feel really makes a difference. Marketing is one of the key vehicles that helps take your business where you want it to go.
The second is "marketing know-how." That comes from good information and practice. The trouble is that there is so much marketing information out there it can be overwhelming. What really works to attract clients? What can you do that won't cost a fortune? Are there marketing strategies that are both effective and don't take up a huge amount of time?
The third thing you need is some kind of support. When you are trying to master something that is both new and complex, you don't do it on your own. If you do, it will take you longer, cost you more, and result in more failures. By working with a mentor, you can speed up your know-how by five, ten, even twenty times. If you work with someone who's been there before to guide you on the path, you'll have a lot less trial and error.
Mentoring isn't for people who need a few marketing ideas or a little coaching. You already know more than you can implement. The thing is, you are stuck, and your great plans don't amount to much. You have big ideas, but the details keep distracting you. Your know-how hasn't caught up with your aspirations and the trial and error is wearing on you.
On the other hand, you may be very successful in your salon/day spa; however, have reached a plateau and want to take your business to the next level. You want to learn how you can market more effectively to grow faster. You don't have anyone you can talk to about marketing and you need both a partner in strategy, and someone to hold your feet to the fire. This is exactly what I do.

With Marketing Mentoring, We Use The "7-Step Fast Track Model"
This proven methodology was developed by Robert Middleton of Action Plan Marketing and has been used successful with thousands of self-employed professionals and professional service businesses. I’ve been trained and certified in this methodology. In addition, I also bring more than 20 years of experience as a salon business consultant, coach, and industry expert.
Marketing Mentoring Format and Results
Mentoring sessions are done by phone or in person and are typically 60 to 90 minutes in length. All sessions are taped for your use. Between sessions, you will work on assignments to increase your marketing skills in each of the Seven Fast Track Steps.
Depending on your current situation, we will take about twelve sessions in guiding you through the initial development of your marketing action plan. Then we will work with you additionally, as needed, to develop marketing materials and implement your marketing action plan until you are seeing results.
You will start seeing results well before we have completed our work with you. As your understanding of marketing increases, you will begin to communicate more effectively about your business and start generating more attention and interest. You'll start the process of "playing the game of marketing" and have some wins in the process.
After working through all Seven Fast Track Steps, you'll have a true grasp of how marketing works and will be prepared to grow your business in ways you never before thought possible.
Getting Over Marketing Obstacles
The biggest marketing obstacle to successful marketing isn't external. It's internal. We all have various beliefs and thoughts that tend to sabotage our marketing efforts. If you think, "I'm not a good marketer, I can't write, I don't like networking, and web sites don't work," then what you say will become a self-fulfilling prophecy. When we work on Step #2—Marketing Mindset, you'll be introduced to some very powerful tools that will help you dramatically shift your marketing perspective.
