Quick Tip

Good morning!

How's the new year treating you so far? BTW, aren't you glad we don't write checks anymore šŸ˜‰.

Today I like to share a personal lesson learned from the past week. It's about the importance of reminding people about what you do and how your business helps others.

I was lucky enough to land 3 new copywriting projects last week. And I didn't do any selling. At least not what you'd consider traditional selling.

Each of those projects came from another business owner who had a client who needed copywriting help. After I reminded them that I focus on marketing and sales copywriting, I immediately had new work - and new revenue.

I didn't know about those clients. If I hadn't mentioned copywriting, I would have never known about them.

I guess there are two lessons here:

1) Other people/businesses already have a group of your ideal clients. Connect with them and figure out how you can make their life easier.

2) Don't assume people know what you do - or everything you do. Find ways to remind them.

Every day there are new, wonderful tools that promise to help grow our business. Try them out. But don't forget the basics.

Here's to a prosperous year for you, your family, and your business.
