Selling sweary pins on Tiktok With Tasha Miller

Today we are talking...TIKTOK! Tiktok is not just about lipsyncing to a song, or following memes, It can be a powerful marketing tool. Today we’re talking about how to use Tiktok as a product based business. (As a service based business I also learned a lot from this episode.) I’m so pleased Tasha Miller from Jubly-Umph is joining us today to talk through how she uses Tiktok to grow her business. “Once I started to make my own jewellery and putting my work out there, I discovered there were lots of people out there just like me and it created a little community” - Tasha Miller I discovered Tasha’s business last year. They sell little reminders that you can wear every day: Reminders that you are smart and brave and strong, and reminders to celebrate or get a little sweary. So I had to get some for my teenage daughters. First - they were a huge hit, and second, I found out how super cool Tash from Jubly-Umph was. I’m in awe of how she’s used social media, and more recently using Tiktok to sell her products.  “I was out to dinner with a friend. Just before going I’d posted a Tiktok and it just went off in just a few hours. The orders started rolling in. In the end we got 400 thousand views and $10,000 dollars with of sales from that one post.” - Tasha Miller I’ve recently got into Tiktok myself. (ok, maybe a little bit addicted) To be honest it was an act of rebellion against my daughters who had completely banned me from joining. Now, a few months on I’m finding my stride, and have discovered it’s helped me become more succinct in my video content, as well as finding new people to connect with.  The day before we recorded this I got my first negative comment on my own Tiktok for having only 52 followers (I’m now sitting at the still small but bigger number of 400ish) so found this episode really great to learn from myself Here’s some important information able our guest: Tash started out by graduating uni with a journalism degree. While at uni, she supported herself by trading vintage clothing and jewellery on ebay, before starting a market stall (at rose street market in Fitzroy) to sell her own home-made jewellery and artwork, under the name Jubly-Umph, in 2009. A year later she moved the online business away from ebay to a dedicated website, which then grew enough to become her full-time profession. She has gone on to have 3 permanent part-time staff, to enable her to concentrate on marketing and growing the business. Her facebook, insta, tiktok and email marketing has been integral to the operation and growth of the business, with 2020 seeing Jubly-umph's biggest year of growth yet.  During this episode we discuss the following: Why  it’s important to stick to who you are The importance of showing your face (even if you are an introvert The importance of market research and knowing your audience The difference between “giving it a go” and “giving it your attention” What impact Tiktok has had on Jubly-Umph How Tasha balances creating content with running her business How Tasha repurposes her content Links: https://www.tiktok.com/@jublyumph https://www.instagram.com/jublyumph/ https://www.facebook.com/jublyumphart IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - YoutubeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Managing Marketing Overwhelm

Marketing overwhelm has the power to take us to meltdown. We either freeze, flee or fight and in the end the only thing we don’t do is keep on going on. “Sometimes I need to remember this is not the time to learn that new thing because it’s not a current focus for the business” “When marketing overwhelm is overtaking me it’s normally that either something is out of whack with my actual life or I’m not taking enough time for myself” “Your marketing plan needs to be something that is manageable for you today, right now” Business owners often struggle to maintain marketing for the following reasons Being a business owner is a big job and if marketing is not something you know and understand, the pain of learning and keeping up with everything feels too tiring There isn’t a plan that starts with where you are right now It’s a long term game, and takes a while to see results. When you are working in other areas of the business that sees near instant results, it’s hard to maintain a habit without quick reward It’s something we often do in our spare time because we’ve built a business around our clients We are scared of making mistakes  I’ve felt all of these myself as a business owner. I might be a marketing strategist for other businesses, but often my marketing was historically done outside business hours.  I’m almost fifty and I sometimes struggle with the constant learning and change.  Like most of us in modern life marketing has to fit with all the work that pays the bills, team needs, finding time to exercise, spending time with family and trying to keep the washing pile from not taking over my living room.  I’ve had times when we really just needed a sale, and trusting the long term game was the scariest thing imaginable.  I’ve persisted with marketing because I know it makes business growth easier long term. I’m a marketer because I’m a lazy salesperson. I don’t like cold calling. I don’t want to have to work hard to find each new client. I was people to come to us who are so converted it’s easy for us to start working together I’ve pushed myself into learning because my clients need someone to help guide them through learning. I’ve faced overwhelm because I want to remember just how painful it is when it doesn’t feel that easy to find the time, know how to do it, or where to start. Through that I’ve learned so many ways to measure what’s really going on, how to get past the overwhelm and get your marketing humming. So this podcast is all about what I’ve learned. Let’s get that overwhelm under control  During this episode we discuss the following: Why sometimes you need to stop following people to create your own content How to avoid shiny object syndrome in your marketing Why marketing overwhelm may not be about marketing at all Why scheduling time in for marketing is essential Why long term thinking can get you over the learning pain How long it takes to see results Why it's ok to take it slow  Links: My daily planner Video of our content planner spreadsheet IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - Youtube Rachel Klaver - TiktokSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Backing yourself to move from markets to selling in stores with Sarah Primrose

“Primrose and Co is about putting nature first. So we put nature at the heart of our decisions about our business” - Sarah Primrose “Going to the markets is like going to see your family every week. It’s been one of the best things for us, including getting to network with other small businesses” - Sarah Primrose “You can get stuck on a treadmill, to keep that cashflow going, because you’re having to show up all the time in person, and then COVID comes and breaks that treadmill and you realise you’ve built a business with a lot of risk.” - Rachel Klaver “There’s a perception of what people will pay at a market, and it’s not the same as what someone will pay for at a store” - Sarah Primrose “I just had this moment where I thought yes, I’m ready to do this. I knew if I didn’t I was going to hate myself so I made myself do it” - Sarah Primrose “I love working and collaborating with people, sharing knowledge. But I’m having conflicting feelings as some of what we do now I’ve worked so hard to learn and discover. Sometimes I know I need to protect my IP even though I want to be open.” - Sarah Primrose Living by your own strong ethics around consumerism and the environment while growing a manufacturing and ecommerce business is not without its challenges. Our guest today - Sarah Primrose, the creator and founder of Primrose and Co has managed to do just that, and successfully moved her business from one that sells at markets, to a brand that is now sold online, and via a range of retailers both here in New Zealand and beyond. Sarah’s background as a chef, food stylist, menu and recipe developer, nature explorer, avid gardener, keeper of chickens and sheep has helped her create a business that truly reflects her own style and passions. She grows some of the flowers in her products on her beautiful lifestyle block surrounded by gardens, native bush and rolling hills, where she lives with her partner Scott and a menagerie of dogs, cats and other animals.  Primrose & Co is all about knowing where things come from, where they end up & how we can live more sustainably with Earth Mother & Our Planet. Putting nature at the heart of her decisions, Sarah’s entire brand message is seen through the types of packaging she uses, and how she aligns herself with other businesses and influencers. She’s worked hard to create product packaging that’s refillable, reusable or compostable as part of her sustainability values. She’s definitely had to step over more than her fair share of hurdles and had to take risks to see the growth the business is now experiencing.  I’ve had the privilege to watch the progress of Sarah’s business right from the early days, personally use her products and last year we got to work alongside Sarah. I consider her one of the most “sunshiny” people I know.  She truly lives and breathes her values, and this podcast will inspire anyone with big dreams and goals, but has started off small, with a tiny budget.  During this episode we discuss the following: How small businesses have the flexibility to change and adapt The importance of growing a business that fits in with your ethics and values When and how to take the leaps towards growth The importance of having people around you to be your cheerleaders The lessons learned in moving from markets to retail stores The importance of growing and maintaining a trusted brand IMPORTANT LINKS FOR THIS EPISODE Primrose and Co https://www.instagram.com/primroseandco_nz/ https://www.facebook.com/primroseandconz https://www.tiktok.com/@primroseandconz?lang=en IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - YoutubeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Create great social media content by learning how to be a goat in a tree

“Goats in trees aren’t going “Hey, you know what? Today I’m going to be world famous by climbing into a tree.” They’re just doing normal stuff. It’s us that finds it interesting” - Rachel Klaver “So many business owners are stuck about what to write about for social media because all they see is a boring business. Your potential customers don’t see your business that way at all!” - Rachel Klaver “Think about your “goat in a tree” wisdom - all that insider knowledge and things that you find easy, but your customers and fans don’t. That’s gold content for your social media” - Rachel Klaver “We’re talking about anything that helps people build a relationship with you, and helps them know that you’re the person they’ll buy from when they are ready” - Rachel Klaver “Give people a glimpse about what it might be like to get to work with you.” - Rachel Klaver If there’s one thing that I hear from business owners (especially my clients!), it’s that it’s hard to come up with great content for special media Part of the issue of course, is that not everyone is a writer. And we all have writing blocks we need to get over.  Part of it is a fear that we’ll get it wrong on social media And part of it’s a fear that you’ll go to all that effort and find out that it’s all a waste of time I can’t fix all of that in this podcast, but I can help give you a framework for how to write better content by learning to be a Goat in a Tree Whether you are writing all your own content, or getting someone else to do it, it’s super important that you, as the business owner, take time to work this framework out. This is your business, and it’s your voice that needs to come through everything you do. Being a goat in a tree is learning to see all the interesting parts of your business you take for granted every day.  Here’s what we include in your goat in a tree content: Answering frequently asked questions Talking about your “goat in a tree” wisdom and industry specific knowledge Giving a glimpse of what it would be like to work with you Add to this posts that share your core offers, you and your team, and a little bit of fun and you’ve got a great bank of content Take the time to write great content, and store it all in a spreadsheet. Great content can be used more than once. (and be sure to look out for Episode 16 where we map out how to write great social media captions) During this episode we discuss the following: Why we often find our business boring to write about What people really want to see on your social media Why you need to think like a goat in a tree Why this sort of content works by removing objections What sort of content you need to create How this method builds out a strong content base for your marketing How to use this no matter what sort of business you have IMPORTANT LINKS FOR THIS EPISODE FREE BRAINSTORMING CONTENT PLANNER  STUFF BLOG: How to be a goat in a tree Our MAP IT  Express Event (July) Our MAP IT Express Event (August) IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - Youtube See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

What you must do before spending a cent on Facebook ads with Jo Murphy

“There’s always ways to help your business stand out in a crowded marketplace” - Jo Murphy “The ultimate goal of the algorithm is to show people content that they will like, that starts conversations, and they actively seek out.” - Jo Murphy “Good marketing is something that other people are drawn to and want to become a part of it” -  Jo Murphy “Loving on your existing customers is something that people often don’t do enough. Email marketing is such a great way to show that love” - Jo Murphy I am not sure if it’s because for years I did it really tough, or it’s my stubborn independence, but I hate wasting money. (Unless it’s money I want to waste - you know, like on clothes!) I work with so many businesses who’ve burned through scary amounts of money on digital advertising for little reward. It’s heartbreaking to be honest!  That’s why I’m so pleased Jo Murphy is with me today - I’ve watched her over two years give amazing, careful and considered advice, often in great detail in Facebook groups for free. She’s someone I immensely respect and admire.  Her niche is working primarily with environmentally friendly eCommerce businesses, but her advice is for all eCommerce businesses and can also be extended beyond that for all small businesses wanting to use Facebook ads to grow their audience, get leads and make sales.  Jo Murphy left the halls of academia in 2013 to pursue a career as a freelance digital marketer. She specialises in Facebook and Instagram, works primarily with environmentally friendly eCommerce businesses, and once sent a slinky down the staircase of a ten storey building.  As an active contributor in some of Australia and New Zealand’s biggest online business communities, Jo is passionate about providing solid information and education to businesses of every size and believes that meaningful connections and collaborations are one of the biggest keys to success. When she’s not working with clients through her own business The Ad Nomad, she’s busy working alongside the SmartMarketer team as a community manager for Team Traffic and Train My Traffic Person. During this episode we discuss the following: How Jo went from working with anyone to working with a very specific group of business owners The importance of having the same values as your outsourced partners Why making sure your offer is clear and easy to understand is crucial What barriers you might be putting in the way of your customers Why it’s important to not overstress about algorithms How to have an authentic voice in your marketing What you need to do before you pay someone else to do your ads IMPORTANT LINKS FOR THIS EPISODE Instagram.com/theadnomad theadnomad.com trainmytrafficperson.com Jo’s Patreon Link IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - YoutubeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Creating Superfans by keeping it personal with Casey Hill

“The world we live in today is one where there is a huge ability to grow your business on the power of customer proof” - Casey Hill “When you are a small business you don’t have a huge budget, so you need to find creative ways to differentiate yourself from your competitors” - Casey Hill “That first touchpoint is a huge opportunity to build a relationship. If you start it off with a human connection it brings them in, and gets them talking.” - Casey Hill “People often view customer lifetime value too narrowly - it’s not just how much that person will spend. It’s also how much they share and talk about your brand” - Casey Hill Imagine taking a few moments to create a short, personalised video to someone, that secured  a deal worth thousands of dollars of sales, both in client work and later referrals.  That’s exactly what happened to me a few years back, the first time I tried out a cool app called Bonjoro.  And trust me - the video was pretty casual! I was sitting on my sofa at the end of the day, and all I did was talk about how much I was looking forward to sending them a proposal! (As Casey says in the podcast “You don’t need to be polished” - phew!) I loved speaking with Casey Hill, the head of growth at Bonjoro, about how personalised video can play such an integral part in different stages of the customer journey to build trust, and create community.  For me, the stand out was the way it can fit into your marketing automation systems, and allow you to create a more personalised experience at each stage of the marketing journey (Since recording this episode I sat down, made a plan and we’re using Bonjoro ourselves a lot more.  I’ve recommended Bonjoro during my MAP IT events, and to clients that it’s a perfect fit for, and I am now even more convinced it’s a really simple and effective tool to build trust. (Which is our T in MAP IT) and show investment in your fans and customers (Which is the I in MAP IT) I’d vastly prefer to send an email than pick up the phone. I love the power of marketing automation. And there’s a lot of ways you can make people feel like the automation is written just for them.  But if there’s one thing I’m sure of in this world of fighting to keep people’s attention it’s this - when someone knows something was made just for them, it’s going to stand out to them Casey’s had so much wisdom to share about how we can convert and retain more customers by keeping things personal.  (Plus, we also discussed Quora and Casey’s cool board game Arkon During this episode we discuss the following: How Bonjoro works The power of personalization along with automation Why personalised emails are so powerful Our drive for human to human connection The different ways you can connection along the customer journey How to get the most out of using Bonjoro IMPORTANT LINKS Link to get a two week’s free trial Quora How to Monetise Quora https://twitter.com/bonjoroapp Find Bonjoro on Facebook Find Casey on Linkedin IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - YoutubeSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

“My job is not to decide how someone is going to buy from me. Why are we putting hurdles in the way stopping people buying from us?” - Tracey Smith “We want to buy from artisans. We want to buy from small businesses. We want that real human touch” - Rachel Klaver “It’s like going out for dinner, we want our visitors to eat with their eyes, and your website is there to create desire and build that need” - Tracey Smith.  If I could log all the common questions people ask in Facebook groups about their business the question “How do I get more people to buy from my ecommerce business” would be right up there at the top.  It’s a rude shock to many small business owners just how much work is involved not only in getting people to your site, but then getting them to buy!  We’ve got a special love for retail and eCommerce at my agency Identify.

During this episode we discuss the following: Why you really need an awesome About Us page (and why it converts people to customers) The effects as welcome sequence has had on Tracey’s business What you need to add to every page What platforms the website should be built on and why Why your website needs to “talk to” other platforms on the internet Whether you should be using Popups  How to protect your online assets Cool tools you can use to get a better picture of your business Why you might need to simplify your front page.  Making it easy for people to click buy now.

Your budget is not their budget: Money mindset and pricing correctly

“If you’re getting frustrated when people are taking you for granted - it’s a sign you might need to put your prices up” - Natalie Coombe If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working with hundreds of small business owners, it’s that a large percentage of us do not value what we do enough to make sure we’re getting paid for all our hard work. We definitely pay our team, our suppliers and we’re all about the great deals for our customers… but when it comes to us? We come last! Today I’m going to ask you to change all of that! Take a listen to pricing expert Natalie Coombe to learn how to drop “burnt chop” syndrome, and begin to create a business that gives you the life you set out to have when you started your business. Natalie generously shares the two best pricing models for small businesses, and talks about how you can move to a model that values your time, energy and effort as well as helps position yourself as an expert (this works for product based businesses too!) For me personally, I realised I’m still very much someone who can struggle to put myself first, not because anyone else is pushing me back, but because I definitely was a burnt toast person for years as a single mum (Chops were a rare treat back then!) It’s amazing how our life slips into our business mentality and vice versa.  In terms of MAP IT - (Map, Action, Promote, Invest Trust) pricing fits very firmly in the “we need to work this out before we go start marketing out to everyone! Too often it’s a job that’s done after you’ve got to rock bottom, so the earlier you can make sure your products are priced for profit and growth, or your services pricing correctly reflects the value of your offer, the better! “We’re always learning new things. Running a business is the biggest personal development journey there is” - another great quote from Natalie! During this episode we discuss the following: What blocks we have around our value as business owners Why you need to look out for burnt chop syndrome The four ways to work out your pricing structure Why looking at competitors might not be the best solution What factors your pricing needs to consider How to move from a cost based pricing structure to a value based one Why you don’t need to fear the word MATH!

Redefining your perfect niche by "Narrowing the Arrow"

I used to spend a lot of time getting clients to create a customer avatar/ target persona. It’s something that big companies spend a huge amount of time on- and it’s foten because they are trying to find the targeted group in an audience of BILLIONS However, for many of us, we’re not fishing in a barrel of billions. If we live in a small regional town, or we offer a low competition service, or we don’t need that many clients, we might not need to describe our target persona as “25-35 year old male who loves drinking pina coladas and taking walks in the rain” In this episode I want to release you from the idea that a target persona is the ONLY way to narrow your target market And give you seven (yes SEVEN) different other methods you can use to find your people We personally use a mix of three of these, and since I’ve used this method I’ve found we’ve had far better engagement, growth and qualified leads. You STILL need to talk to one person in your marketing copy But this episode will help you narrow that arrow so that one person hears it, sees it, and knows IT’S JUST FOR THEM During this episode we discuss the following: Why it’s really important to Narrow the Arrow Why this method is especially effective for people who live in small towns, and cities How this method can help coaches and trainers grow their audience The seven key ways you can define your target market How to apply this in your own business How to blend several of these ideas together IMPORTANT LINKS Narrow the Arrow Worksheet IMPORTANT LINKS MENTIONED DURING MAP IT MARKETING EPISODES MAP IT Marketing Facebook group Identify’s Free Events and Webinars Identify Marketing Instagram Identify Marketing Facebook Page Rachel Klaver Website Identify Marketing NZ Website Identify Marketing Australian Website Rachel Klaver - Linkedin Rachel Klaver - Youtube See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
