Welcome to episode 052 of the Law of Effortlessness Podcast.

In this episode, Shannon takes a dive in and explores how to choose the right places to be seen online, particularly with the craziness of digital marketing.  When it comes to where to invest your time in person and online there are a few key considerations to be made, especially with an abundance of events such as breakfasts, brunches, lunches, coffee, sundowners and dinners all on offer, just for in person opportunities, let alone the abundance of online options to connect with others.

This episode explores key factors to consider such as:

  • FB groups
  • Instagram
  • In-person networking events
  • Your brand perception and image
  • Opportunities to promote to your target market

Shannon also looks at the reasons we choose to be seen in some places, and not others by asking questions such as:

  • What do you need personally and professionally?
  • What’s the personal gain you are looking to experience or achieve?

Shannon breaks this down further by taking into consideration brand image and calls to action with those you meet and connect with whether it’s in person or online. It’s another content rich solo show, featuring Shannon’s #businessyoda wisdom for making things easier when it comes to being seen online and in person.

How Often Should I Review My Marketing Message?

Blog Review My Marketing Message - Creative Possibility | Shannon Bush Marketing Coaching Perth

One of the biggest marketing questions I get asked: How often should I review my marketing message? Here's what I think...

Things aren’t working for you and you find yourself thinking “I really should review my marketing message!”

Defining your marketing message can become one of the most frustrating things you do in your business.  It can feel like you’ve never got it just right and ready to do it’s awesome job at helping you connect with all those fabulous people out there in the big wide world who are looking for you but don’t yet know you exist.

I know, in reality It can certainly take a while to evolve into something succinct and clear and magnetic. I have found many small business owners I’ve worked with or spoken to about their marketing message and overall business messages, have felt the need to constantly change it because it’s just not quite right.

Perhaps it isn’t quite hitting the mark and making an impact and magnetically drawing people to you.  It will need to be reviewed and changed over time but I think the thing to be aware of is that we can also change it for change sake.

Your message may very well be ideal for you and your target market but you’re simply not sharing it anywhere much or not sure what to do with it to let it work it’s magic.

Here’s some truths to consider about your marketing message;

You will evolve as you learn and experience.

So will your ideal clients.

So yes, you will need to review and evolve your marketing message in line with that.  But don’t get tempted to change things up just because it’s boring, not working, you don’t like sharing or saying it. You can only know if your message is on point after you’ve been sharing it consistently over a period of time.

And by consistent I mean more than a random time once a week or month!

So the question I posed at the begining of this blog is looking for an answer!I suggest a quarterly check in on your message to see if it’s still in alignment. If it

How Often Should I Review My Marketing Message?

I suggest a quarterly check in on your message to see if it’s still in alignment. If it is don’t change it. If not it may only need a slight tweak, not a massive overhaul.

Read what you have as your message out lout and see how it sounds and feels. Trust yourself and adjust accordingly.

Practice more proactively using your message everywhere you can.  This goes for your current message, or the new one you’ve crafted.  Only using it frequently will provide you with the feedback as to it’s effectiveness.

Be consistent and as clear as you can be and let your message do it’s work, magnetically drawing more of the right clients your way.

LOE 034 | Perfectionism Be Gone w/ Claire Barton | Podcast

LOE 034 Perfectionism Be Gone | The Recovering Perfectionist Claire Barton | Shannon Bush Business Coach Perth

In Episode 034 of Law of Effortlessness Podcast, you host Shannon Bush, talks with Claire Barton who is a list-ticking, action-taking, colour-coding, butt-kicking, organising goddess and productivity guru who helps entrepreneurs to simplify their processes, make a plan and take real action.  Today this is all about perfectionism and how to tackle it.

Claire admits she is also a Recovering Perfectionist. Claire shares about her journey in business from where she started to where she is now. Claire and Shannon talk all about perfectionism and how the ‘Recovering Perfectionist’ came about. Claire share that you are never going to totally get rid of your perfectionism, so if this is the case, you need to find a way to be ok with being a perfectionist.

What would that look like for you in your life and business? Perhaps you could give your inner perfectionist a job to do, give her a purpose. Not everything in your life and business needs to be perfect. Sometimes the fact a job or task is done but not perfect if enough.

The ladies encourage you to focus on the celebrations in your life and business; focus on the small wins. Do you suffer from comparision-itis and let it stop you from sharing your services because there is already something similar out there? Claire and Shannon muse over comparison-itis and they pose a question of how can you refine your methodology and services to become more inspired, creative and confident to get your services out into the world?

Deliver your version, your way. Listen in, be inspired and see what you can take from this wonderful episode.
