Developing a Millionaire Mindset

Becoming a millionaire is the dream of most entrepreneurs. I share that from the unique position of being able to chat one-on-one with many as we work together to select what products they want to purchase to grow their business.   The difference between just the dream of being a millionaire and turning that dream into reality comes down several things.  And it starts with mindset.

Here are 5 mindset characteristics that will set you on the road to becoming a millionaire:

Know Your “Why”.  Those with the greatest success have a vision for what they want to achieve.  This vision – and the reason why they want to do it – is so compelling that it becomes the driving force behind every action that you take.  It is something that the most successful make tangible and visible. What impact do you want to make on the world?  What is it that will keep you going even when things get tough?

Take Action.  Develop a goal-oriented approach to everything you do.  Set specific goals and figure out the steps to get there.  Don’t just focus on the long term goals – identify short term milestones that you can celebrate and that will encourage you to keep pursuing your objectives.  While doing this, surround yourself with the people and tools that help get you there.

Be a Problem-Solver.  One of the biggest obstacles to achieving our goals – and millionaire status – is that when we are hit with a problem, we tend to only see the problem.  That too often stops us in our tracks.  A millionaire mindset will not see it as a problem, but as a challenge needing a solution.  There will always be problems and failures – but those that succeed will work through them and learn from them.  They keep their eyes on the ultimate goal and see these setbacks as mere bumps in the road.  And more than that, they encourage those around them to be problem solvers too.

Be Coachable.  Having a millionaire mindset also means that you are eager to learn from those around you, and are willing to grow and change.  This means being able to incorporate feedback from trusted sources into all that you do without getting defensive and shutting down. Those with a millionaire mindset seek out those that have traveled your path and are willing to impart their wisdom.  The more open you are to hearing what they have to say and acting on it, the more quickly you will be successful.

Invest in Relationships.  Networking is a huge part of the life of an entrepreneur.  The key to having a millionaire mindset is to develop deep, long-lasting relationships that build trust – trust that you will be there for each other for the long haul, and help each other reach your goals.  As you are building these relationships, remember that part of the investment is being generous of thought and action.

I know what it takes to reach your goals and become the millionaire you want to be.  Not only have I put these simple principles into practice to grow Wearable Imaging into a multi-million dollar business, but I have been able to help others achieve the same success.  Give me a call at 949.888.7837 or email me at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session.  I’ll send you a complimentary copy of my book as well! “The Golf Course Millionaire” How to Turn Relationships into Big Business With Golf.

Core Principles to Improving Customer Service

The success of your business depends on the quality of your customer service.  It doesn’t matter how good your products are, if your customers feel like they are not treated properly, you will have a hard time attracting new customers and growing your business.  Why?  Because customers value their experience with a company more than the price or product itself.  In fact, they will spend more on a product or service if they receive a better customer experience.

Providing excellent customer service doesn’t have to be difficult, as long as you adhere to these core principles:

Always Be Listening.  Your customers want to feel as if they matter.  The best way to do this is to listen to them and respond accordingly.  Ask questions.  Get to know them and what is important to them.  In fact, if you listen intently and respond specifically to their needs, chances are the sales process will be more successful.

Respond Quickly.  In today’s fast-paced world, how quickly you respond to questions – and complaints – will have an impact on customer satisfaction.  It isn’t limited to one-to-one interactions either.  Social media has become an outlet for many to ask questions online, and they expect a quick response.  Not only that, everyone is watching your interaction with that person online and will judge whether or not they do business with you based on those interactions.

Address Negative Feedback.  No one likes to hear complaints – especially when it comes to our products or services.  It can feel like a personal attack and the first inclination is to get defensive.  The second is to ignore it.  Do either and you will lose business.  In fact, if you can address the complaint quickly and find a suitable solution, you will not only have a happy customer who will purchase more from you in the future, they will tell others about their experience.  Negative comments on social media are extremely important too – 88% of people won’t purchase from companies that don’t answer online complaints.

Follow Up.  One simple action that makes a significant impact in a customer’s impression of you and your business is to follow up with them.  Whether it’s a phone call, an email or a hand-written thank-you, the idea is that you really care about your customers and clients and want to make sure that they are happy with their experience.  While we talked about responding to negative feedback above, the fact is that 91% of your customers will never complain.  They just won’t make a repeat purchase – and they’ll tell between 9 and 15 others about their bad experience.  By simply following up and asking questions, you are opening a door that makes them feel like you really want their feedback and will do something about it.

There are many other ways that you can improve your customer service and grow your business.  Mastering these core principles will put you on the road to success.  Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

3 Building Blocks to Grow Your Business in 2020

It’s a new year and a new decade.  How are you planning to attract new clients and grow your business over the months and years to come?  Here are 3 marketing building blocks you’ll need to ensure your success.

  1. Build a website your clients want to visit. When it comes to digital marketing, there are only two pieces of real estate that you actually own.  The first is your website.  In many cases, your website is the first interaction your clients may have with you and your company.  It needs to quickly and easily convey who you are, what you do and how you can help your potential clients overcome their challenges, meet their goals or solve their problems.  It also has to be user-friendly and easy-to-navigate – otherwise you’ll lose them and their business.  Whether you design a multi-page website or make it a simple landing page, keep your clients’ needs – and not yours – at the forefront.
  2. Build your email list. The second piece of online real estate that you own is your email list.  We are pretty good about collecting emails (most of the time), but the question is, what are you doing to nurture those contacts and turn them into actual customers?  Put together a strong plan that will (1) get them on your list and (2) keep their attention through periodic messages that will give them information to help them succeed, show them that you are the expert, and provide multiple opportunities for them to work with you.
  3. Build brand recognition online and offline. Brand recognition is extremely important to your business growth.  It determines how you stand out from your competition and is a way to get your clients and potential clients to easily recognize everything you do.  Make sure that you are consistent in how you show up online and offline.  Your online efforts include your website, your pages on social media, and more.  Offline, think about promotional products that you can use as giveaways at trade shows, thank-you gifts for customers, and other interactions you may have with potential clients.

Are you ready to grow your business in 2020 and beyond?  Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

Why Custom Promos Work

Most of us understand that promotional products are a key component to a successful business strategy.  We’ve had our share of pens, mugs, t-shirts and the like that are customized with the logos and imprints of various companies, so we have a basic understanding of what “customized promotional items” are, right?

But there is another level to customized promotional products that goes way beyond the typical fare you see day in and day out.  It’s those items that are actually designed specifically for you and your customer.  They are unique, one-of-a-kind items that can make you stand out in a crowd and make your customers (and potential customers sit up and pay attention.)

The key, though, is to think outside the box.  What would convey a specific marketing message to your audience in such a unique way that they will remember you and your customized promo gift for a long time?  And, then, of course, the question is how to produce it.

When you are designing a unique promotional item, it is important that you partner with a company that has the track record and the connections with manufacturers to produce the product in a timely manner and within your budget.  Here are some questions to ask yourself (and your partner) as you go down this path:

  • What is my goal in creating this unique item? Is it to promote a specific event?  To create a collectible to be sought after in years to come.  Or is it to simply improve brand recognition?
  • Who will receive the custom promo? Are you targeting a specific subset of your customers?  Is it a gift item for your most loyal customers?
  • What is your budget? Budget is an important factor.  You want to make sure that you and your partner are clear on what you are willing to spend and how many you want to order.  It will play a factor in deciding quality of the product, who will manufacture it and more.
  • What is your timeline? Planning this out with ample lead time is a must.  You will most likely need to evaluate several different prototypes before settling on one you like.

Custom promotional items are a great idea to increase awareness and improve sales.  Wearable Imaging has helped many clients create unique promo items from scratch.  Set up a meeting today to turn your ideas into reality.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

Wearable Promotional Items: NOT Just Your Next T-Shirt

When it comes to wearable promotional items, most people immediately think of t-shirts with the company logo.  The truth is that wearable promotional products have come a long way over the years.  In fact, worldwide shipments of wearable promotional items have increased by 94.6% just in the last quarter alone.  If you haven’t considered wearables in a while, it’s time to take a closer look.

When it comes to promotional products, the wearable category has expanded considerably.  In fact, wearables fall into 3 categories:

#1 Promotional Clothing

This is the category that most associate with wearables.  Whether it’s your t-shirt or polo shirt, promotional clothing is a great way to get your brand in front of your audience.  While t-shirts are probably the go-to item in this category, you can brand pretty much any type of clothing – shorts, jackets, button-down shirts and even dresses to name a few.

#2 Promotional Accessories

Promotional accessories, includes items like caps, backpacks, blankets, scarves and gloves.  These are products that people will use over and over again, giving you and your company a shout-out to everyone they run into and keeping you top-of-mind for their next purchase of your product or service.

#3 Wearable Tech

This last category is probably the biggest and fastest growing.  With the sophistication of our technology and the ability to actually “wear” it (think fitness trackers, smartwatches, earbuds, etc.), the ability to brand it and use it as a promotional item is huge.

3 Tips For Purchasing Successful Wearable Promotional Products

Keep these three tips in mind as you plan your purchase of wearable promotional products:

  1. Colors are important. Your goal is to promote your brand, so make sure that you stay within your branding guidelines.  When choosing a color (or colors) for your wearables, ask yourself if it is consistent with your brand.
  2. Stay true to your brand message.  As with any promotional item, make sure that your message is in line with your brand and makes sense with the campaign that you are running (e.g., don’t use a scarf when you are promoting or supporting a summer event).
  3. Keep it simple. When choosing a wearable promotional product – particularly one that involves technology – keep your audience in mind.  Don’t choose something that your audience will have a hard time using.  Not only will it frustrate them, it will also be what they remember about your brand (and will purposefully not purchase from you).

Wearables have come a long way, and there are many options.  If you are considering wearables for your next promotion, Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

Do You Know What The Top Two Main Goals For All Trade Show Exhibitors Are?

Trade shows or expos are always a great way to meet new customers, find new contacts and check out what’s new in your industry or niche.  The thing is, if you are an exhibitor, you should only have two main goals in mind:

  1. Attract the right prospect
  2. Move the potential client to the next level in the relationship

The problem is, most of us don’t concentrate on these as we get distracted by seeing old colleagues and checking out what everyone else is doing.  Here are a few tips to help you meet these two objectives:

  1. Select the right show. The most important step in being effective at a trade show is to make sure that you have selected the right show to attend.  This goes hand in hand with the goal of attracting the right prospect.  Do your research to make sure that the attendees of the show actually fit your target audience/ideal customer profile.  If you are selling a new way to cook meat, then a trade show catering to vegetarians/vegans is probably not a good fit.  Most trade show organizers will be able to give you a good idea of attendee demographics, so take advantage of all they have to offer.
  2. Set measurable goals. What do you want to accomplish at the show?  Is it to get new clients?  Is it to take current clients to the next level?  Whatever your goals are, make sure they are SMART – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-Based.  If you want to sign up 10 new clients each day, then put together a plan that will help you achieve that specific goal.
  3. Plan your booth If you want to attract the right prospect and move them to the next level in the relationship, you need to make sure that your booth is set up for success.  This means everything from booth layout to lighting, to color scheme and even the promotional products that you plan to give away.  Make sure that you have enough staff to cover the trade show hours and handle whatever traffic you’ll have at your booth.  For many, this will be their first impression of you and your company.
  4. Marketing Materials. This is your place to shine.  Make sure that you have enough brochures, sales sheets, business cards, and promotional materials to handle the traffic you expect (and more).  Plan out how you will collect visitors’ contact information as well – this is critical to your success.  It can be as easy as having a giveaway/raffle where they enter with a business card to having an actual sign-up for more information.
  5. Follow up immediately. You’ve done your best at the trade show and have a list of people interested in your product or service.  Spend time the first few days back following up with them.  Thank them for visiting your booth, ask if they have any questions, give them some additional information that they will find interesting.  The goal is to stay top-of-mind so that when they do need your product or service, they will call on you.

These five simple tips will set you up for success at your next trade show.  Ready to start using promotional items as a core part of your marketing strategy?  Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

Brilliant Branding: 5 Tips for a Successful Trade Show

For many, trade shows are an excellent way to get in front of potential customers and give them an opportunity to get to know your business and what you have to offer.  Whether it’s the trade show of the century or a local expo, using promotional items is always a good marketing strategy.  The question is, how do you use those promotional items to your advantage?  Here 5 tips that will help make your next trade show memorable:

  1. Don’t put a date on your promotional product. You’ve chosen the perfect item to give away at your event, and you are ready to print.  Do yourself a favor – don’t include the date or name of the event.  The simple reason is this:  you are paying good money for those promotional items, but don’t know exactly how many you’ll give away.  If you put a date on it, you’ll be stuck with items that you won’t be able to use in the future.  Keep it simple and just put your logo, tagline and/or contact information on it.
  2. Know your audience. Make sure that you understand who the attendees at the event will be (make sure they are your ideal customer).  That way, you can choose an item that they will appreciate – you don’t want to give away disposable water bottles at a “save the environment” conference.
  3. Include a call to action. One area that many businesses fail to do is to include a call to action on their promotional items.  People actually need to be told what to do, so if your swag has space to put some sort of call to action – “call for free consultation” or “follow us on Facebook” – take advantage of it!
  4. Let people know they can actually take your giveaway. Your giveaway is just that – a gift you are giving to attendees.  Make it obvious that they can take your item – don’t try to hide it or try to make them talk to you to get it.  You may miss opportunities to engage down the road because you denied someone access to a giveaway.
  5. Talk to those who take your product. When someone does take your swag, try to engage them in a friendly conversation.  Not everyone will want to talk to you right then (they have your information anyway, right?), but it’s important to make sure that you answer any questions they may have, give them a brochure or take them through what you offer.  In many cases, this is the first contact you will have with them, so make it memorable and pleasant.

Keeping these 5 tips in mind will put you on the road to success for your next trade show.  Ready to start using promotional items as a core part of your marketing strategy?  Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.

4 Often Missed Printed Promo Opportunities

When we think of promotional items, we usually think of pens, mugs, and t-shirts…or something along those lines.  But there are other opportunities to get your company name out there that are easy and fairly inexpensive – and useable.  Here are the top four:

  1. Name Badges. Whether its employee name badges that help customers get to know you and your staff or name badges that you use at a conference or trade show (or even sponsor), this is a highly effective way to get your company information front and center.
  2. Mouse Pads. Few promos can promise the repeat exposure mousepads pack in the workplace or in public spaces. End-users will use them all day long at work or at school.  Mousepads are also very affordable, so their cost-per-impression can’t be beat.
  3. Counter Mats. If you have a retail business, this is an excellent way to have that last marketing touchpoint with your customers.  Use it to remind them of a service you offer, a specific marketing campaign you are running or something that they will remember and associate with you and your business.
  4. Calendar magnets, re-stick-its (think oil change reminders for your windshield) and other items that can be moved from one place to another are great items that your customers will use again and again, ensuring that you stay top of mind for the next time that they need your product or service.

Convinced?  Ready to start using promotional items as a core part of your marketing strategy?  Wearable Imaging is here to help.  Give us a call at 949.888.7837 or email us at sales@wearableimaging.com to set up your complimentary strategy session with our President Robin Richter.
