Lunch Lady: Go from Overlooked to Fully Booked

At our August Lunch Lady Event, we learned how to turn our efforts into consistent, organic leads that can be generated and used on a variety of platforms to reach our most desired customer so that we can reach our revenue goal.

Cat Stancik shared her lead generation talents with the group to show how they can drive business, close sales, and reach their revenue goals.

We learned:

  • Fast Action Connections: The fastest path to uncover clients that are ‘hiding in plain sight’ and learn to convert your current connections into sales.
  • Money-Making Content Matrix: The end of “content generation frustration,” this strategy transforms ONE piece of content into 8 client-attracting posts.
  • Ultimate Lead Generator: This money-making tool helps you generate the leads you want (or need) in less than an hour per day.
  • Client-Centered Conversion Roadmap: The proven roadmap will help you to close business confidently.
  • A strategy that serves the client and closes the sale 80% of the time.

Lunch Lady: Money is in the Follow-Up

At our July Lunch Lady Event, we learned how Money is in the Follow-Up and how growing your business is possible when you understand how to implement the buying process and automation in your business.

Tina explained how many people neglect the area of their lives that calls for following up because they think there is an expiration date. They do not understand the money is an idea in action and following up is a part of the process. If you don’t follow-up the money or miss any part of the process, the money will pass you by.

We covered:

  • The different stages of the buying process and how to effectively move your prospect toward the sale
  • Why using social media without lead capture and nurturing automation is leaving 97% more sales on the table
  • How to re-engage with all of those business cards that are collecting dust

The Mayor’s Office of Contract Services (MOCS) is a New York City oversight and service agency dedicated to optimizing existing operations and transforming processes that make it easier to do business with the City. The team at MOCS has been working on the next phase of PASSPort, the City’s digital end-to-end procurement platform, which will be expanded in the weeks ahead to include significant new features. The relevance of a completely digital procurement process has never been more apparent than it is today.

The PASSPort will include the following features that enable:

  • Easy and early identification of Citywide solicitations with a digital roadmap
  • Electronic submission of bids and proposals through simple digital questionnaires
  • Real-time tracking towards registration through an online milestone tracker
  • Digital contract execution with electronic signatures and elimination of notaries

At MOCS, we believe that technology is critical to leveling the playing field and creating access and opportunity, particularly for Minority and Women Owned Business Enterprises (M/WBEs). We shared more about the upcoming release of PASSPort and how businesses can make sure they are ready to take advantage of the upcoming enhancements.

What To Do When You Drop the Ball

We all have business setbacks, disappointments, and moments of being thrown off course by the constant changes around us.

Our options: we can stay stuck or use these moments as opportunities to learn, grow and create something better.

Let’s commit to moving forward into the new year with a commitment to continuous learning and improvement!

Jen Slaw taught us to think like a juggler: Set clear goals, embrace a growth mindset, and implement deliberate practice….all while staying flexible in the face of change.

She shared her unconventional career path from structural engineer to professional juggler to speaker and her 4-step framework for greater performance and fulfillment in life and work.

We had FUN tossing some balls around as we:

  • Focused & Prioritized efficiency and presence. Juggling is NOT multi-tasking.
  • Improved Collaboration & Communication. Teams should always be getting tighter.
  • Identified Stumbling Blocks. The same mistakes yield the same results.
  • Created & Mastered New Strategies. Commit to a growth mindset & continuous improvement.
  • Heard Inspirational Stories – from party-clown to Broadway!…and 3 steps you will apply to your own career growth.

 

“People left energized and inspired by both the actual practice & deep metaphors of juggling.” – Exponent Philanthropy

“Left a lasting impression…a memory our team will continue to share in future conversations.” – Bristol-Myers Squibb

The Secrets Google Analytics Can Reveal About Your Business

Understanding Google Analytics and regularly reviewing the activity reports is one of the most important things you can do for your business as it tells you whats working and what is not working in your overall digital marketing efforts. It can help you clearly define and target where and how you should spend your time in attracting new business.

Every business owner has pressing questions which include;

  • What do you see when you Google yourself or your business online?
  • How do your potential customers find your business website?
  • Who is visiting your website, and when?
  • What are they looking at when they visit?
  • How much is a click worth to you?
  • How long are website visitors staying on your site?
  • Which pages or blogs are most popular or drive the most lead conversions?

November’s Lunch Lady event went over how to answer these questions as we took a deep dive into the world of Google Analytics!

  • We reviewed some of the most important steps to improving and setting up your Google Analytics, Webmaster Tools, and Search Console properties and showed you how to connect them to your Google Ads account if you have one.
  • We also covered how to set-up regular reports that focus on just the information important to you, and get them delivered to your inbox as often as you’d like.

Learning to navigate Google Analytics is one of the most important things you can do for your business.
