In April, the team at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Columbus Airport hosted WPC and treated us to a delicious dinner and desserts. Our spotlight speaker, Christy Townsend with The Paper Vow showed us unique samples and offered coupons for her stationary services.

Our guest speaker from April, Sarah Cook, is a Business Success Strategist for Creative Entrepreneurs. She supports creatives and coaches her clients in achieving consistent and growing income through effective marketing, clientele relationship building and visibility. Her ultimate goal is to help entrepreneurs see that their business can financially and emotionally support them 150% in any dream or desire they have for their personal and professional lives.

How to make consistent income

  • You have to meet your clients
  • Build your audience and brand
  • Become the standout, go-to person
  • Stay on track with a simple time management strategy
  • Get out there - network, create your own networking opportunities if need be
  • Market like a boss...and cheap
  • Have a public profile
  1. Include what you do in your description
  2. Your brand and aesthetic mus run throughout your personal and business pages
  3. When you are VISIBLE, people can find and refer you
  • You must build TRUST and ENGAGEMENT

Trust

  • Determine 6 themes about you and create your posting content calendar based on those themes
  • You don't want to be a person completely separate from your business
  • Create a positive connection to your name and what you do

Engagement

  • It's your job to build interaction with your audience
  • Never say "message me" in a post
  • ELEVATE your brand

Follow up

  • Pick 2 or 3 days for follow up
  • Set a short amount of time aside
  • Schedule engagement posts around this
