Mum Entrepreneurs Network Event 1st October 2014
First day of October and also the day of our Networking, network and more networking Event! It was all about putting your business in the picture and get honest feedback from the like-minded women in business! We started with introducing ourselves and our business to the women in our group and then got to ask the following questions:
- What do you think is my business’ Mission?
- Who do you think is my ideal Customer?
- What do you think would the Customer Value?
Some of the things I picked up from this was to not be afraid into trying out targeting different audiences. Do not spend the next 10 years of your life wasting your time, energy and funds trying to sell something to somebody who simply isn’t interested. (they are just not that into you! LOL). Go to networking events, not just us, but other network groups and learn to promote your business, Practice that pitch/ 30 second introduction. Use network groups as your guinea pigs. One of the best marketing advice I ever received was to register for several different domains, using relevant keywords, and have them all redirect to your existing website. A great way of driving traffic to your site using your keywords specific to your business.
I also wanted to give a big thank you to the businesses who donated the RAFFLE prizes for this event. Lovely skin care and body care products donated by the lovely Karyn Murphy from Avon (for more info on Avon please email firstname.lastname@example.org), Angela Counsel Naturopath and Lifestyle Consultant and author of Secret Mums Business and Miriam Castilla Author of Today’s Woman.
