My 5 Top Tips for Building a Twitter Following that Interact with you

My 5 top tips for building a Twitter following that interact with you

Building an engaged followers on Twitter

 

What is the difference between engaged followers on Twitter and followers on Twitter?  It can be the difference between being successful and getting results or just having an account on Twitter.  Anyone can increase the number of followers they have on Twitter easily (just go and follow other accounts) without paying money for a 1,000 followers, never ever do this as it is a waste of money and can do more harm than good.  Engaged users will interact with you either by retweeting your tweets or having a conversation with you, this will get you and your tweets seen by more people.  Also if you are seen to be chatting with people on Twitter it is more likely that other people will start conversations with you.  So here are my 5 top tips for building an engaged Twitter Following.

1) Complete your Twitter profile

Completing your Twitter profile is very important, so important that I have written a separate blog post all about it, Twitter Basics Part 1 – Profile.  Your profile should have a picture that is same as on other social media sites and the written bio which is 160 characters should include keywords that people might search for when looking for your services.  A header image that is either relevant to your business or tells people more about your business helps you stand out.  You need to give people information so they can easily decide that you are someone interesting to follow or that they already know you.

2) Follow other Twitter users that are active on Twitter

Follow other active Twitter users that you find interesting and that engage with people on Twitter.  If you only follow accounts that broadcast on Twitter, it is unlikely that they will see your tweets never mind interact with you.

3) Start a conversation

Rather than just following someone, start a conversation with them either about something they mention in their profile or something that they have tweeted about.  For example I might start a conversation with someone, who like me, mentions in their profile they like Dr Who.  If the recent Dr Who series is running I might ask what they thought to the latest episode or if not I might ask something more general like who is their favourite Dr.  This shows I have read their bio and we have something in common.

4) Get involved in a local networking hour hashtag

Find your local county networking hour hashtag and start chatting to people that are also using the hashtag or find a hashtag that is relevant to your business like #weddinghour and get involved in the conversation.  Don’t just tweet promotional tweets about what you do but have conversations with people and retweet relevant tweets.  Always check the etiquette for the hashtag, telling people in a tweet that you are new to the networking hour and asking if there is anything you need to know is a good way to start.  Then follow people from the networking hour and follow back anyone that follows you.

5) Share great relevant content in your tweets

Sharing great relevant content will get people following you, as we all like to follow people that share great content especially if it is relevant to what we are interested in.  Share a mixture of your own content along with retweeting other “expert’s” content and business’s content that you think your followers will be interested in.

What makes you engage with other Twitter users?

The Basics of an All-Star LinkedIn Profile

The basics of an All Star LinkedIn Profile

Basics of an All-Star LinkedIn Profile

LinkedIn is a great social media site for business people, especially if your ideal clients are business owners.  Some people think of LinkedIn as just an online CV but it is far more powerful than that, it can be used to connect and have conversations with the decision makers in businesses.  I use LinkedIn to connect with people I have met at networking events and stay in contact between networking events.  Also if you are an employee it can be a great way to find a new job.

To get LinkedIn to work for your business you need to have a great profile and have all the basics in place, so that when you send connection invitations and people look at your profile they see you as a professional and expert in your field, not someone who is just on LinkedIn.  You also need to use LinkedIn in the correct way, LinkedIn isn’t Facebook for business, the content you share on LinkedIn should be high quality and relevant to the field you work in.

Basics of a LinkedIn Profile

1) Photograph

This should be a recent professional head and shoulders photograph, not a selfie taken in the bathroom.  The photo should be an accurate representation of you now, so that when someone meets you they recognise you.  If you can’t afford a professional headshot then ask friends to see if any of them are good at taking pictures or ask at a local college to see if any of the students would be able to help.

Jackie Elton LinkedIn Profile

2) Headline

The headline is very important and is 110 characters, this should tell people what you do and how you help your clients, owner/director at my business name is not the best use of those 110 characters.  Ensure you use keywords that your ideal clients will be searching for when looking for the services you offer.

3) Summary

The summary should expand on what you put in your headline and be used to tell people how you help your clients and what key skills and experience you have.  You can add images and video to your profile in the summary section to give more information and break up the text.

4) Experience

In the experience section list relevant positions and jobs starting out with your current business and then following on with previous jobs and companies that you have worked for. Under each position list key skills and achievements for that job, you can add images and video for each job as well.

Experience section on LinkedIn

5) Skills and endorsements

In this area you can list your main skills and your connections can then leave an endorsement for those skills they have experience of.  Some people leave endorsements for people in the hope that people will return the favour.  Although I think there is more significance in people giving you a recommendation, it still looks good if you have a number of endorsements from people, also by giving endorsements your picture will be seen as an endorsement on the profile of the person you endorsed.

Getting these 5 basic elements of your profile looking good will mean your profile will look professional when people visit it and people should want to connect with you.  If you want help developing your LinkedIn profile and creating a strategy to get leads from LinkedIn, please get in touch.

Attending local networking events is one part of my marketing strategy, it is a great way to get known locally and find out about other local businesses.  Networking can be time consuming, so it is important that you get the most out of the time you spend at events and that you assess whether attending local networking events works for your business.

Here are my top tips for attending networking events and some of the networking events I attend regularly in Lincolnshire.

Networking hints and tips:

  • Be organised make sure you take a pen and business cards with you
  • Prepare your elevator pitch, work it so you can do it easily in 60 secs
  • If there is a delegate list take notes on the attendees when they do their elevator pitch so you have I idea of who you would like to chat with
  • Ask people open ended questions about their business and what they think of the event
  • Listen to people – use the time to find out about other people and their business
  • Follow up with people after the event, find them on LinkedIn or other social media sites and connect with them
  • Communicate with people between networking events
  • Organise to meet for a coffee and chat, with people that you think might be useful contacts

Networking events in Lincolnshire that I attend

Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce local events

I have recently joined the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce and attend their local networking events, the Boston Chamber (Boston Business Club) have breakfast networking meetings every other month and different local businesses host the events.  The 2 Boston events that I have attended so far have been well attended with 20-30 people attending.  The next event is the 26th of May check the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce website for details of networking events in your area.

Boston Business Club Networking

Imps Premier Plus

Imps Premier Plus is a free networking event on the 2nd Wednesday of the month 6-8pm at Lincoln Football Ground, Sincil Bank.  The event includes a free buffet and drinks, there is a chance for everyone to do their elevator pitch and a Premier Plus member will give a 15-20 minute talk about their business.  At the last 2 events I attended there were 25-35 business people attending, the next meeting is on the 11th of May, email jakelongworth@lincolncityfootballclub.com for more information or to book on to the next event.

Lincoln 777 networking

Lincoln 777 networking is another free networking event, however this is networking with a difference, hosted and organised by Russell Payne & Co, 70 minutes, 7 speakers, 7 topics. It is fast paced and very interesting.  The event is held quarterly in January, April, July and September at BG University, Lincoln and includes free danish pastry and hot drink, it is well attended with 30+ people in the room.  The only down side is you don’t get an opportunity to stand up and do an elevator pitch, so you need to be able to work the room and get to talk to as many people as possible before and after the speakers.  Check out lincoln777.co.uk for more details.

Lincs Connect Networking

Lincs Connect Networking is held on the first Friday of the month at 6pm at a lovely venue, the Petwood Hotel, it costs £5 and you buy your own drink at the bar.  The Lincs Connect meetings are an extension of the Twitter #LincsConnect, it is great for meeting people in person that you follow on Twitter.  This event is quite informal and very friendly, therefore if you are new to networking this is a good place to start, attendance varies between 10-15 so it is good for having more in depth conversations.  The next meeting is 6th May 6pm at the Petwood Hotel, Woodhall Spa.

Link 4 Growth

Link 4 Growth has free networking events all over the country, in Lincolnshire there are events at Weston near Spalding, Bourne and Crowland, there are also events just across the border in Peterborough.  These are great informal and friendly events, just buy yourself a drink and start chatting with people.  The events vary in size, I tend to go to the event at Wimberley Farm Cafe, Weston near Spalding, which has recently had about 20 or so attendees.  No delegate list or elevator pitch just chat with people.

There are other networking events in Lincolnshire but these are the ones that I attend, so feel happy commenting on, as I attend new events I will edit this post and add the details.

How easy is it to find your business online?

Do you ever check how easy your business is to find online?

One of the ways I market my business is attending a number of networking events, some networking events can be very busy and you don’t get an opportunity to talk to everyone, so I use the delegate list to find people online after the networking event or should I say I try to find people.  Some people and businesses are easier to find online than others, how easy is it for your prospective customers to find you and your business?

Where can people find you online?

  • Do you have a website?
  • Are you on LinkedIn?
  • Do you have a Facebook page?
  • Are you on Twitter?

Do your social media sites have the same version of your business name?  And is that likely to be what people are searching for?

For example my business name is Social Media Lincs, so my usernames on social media are either Social Media Lincs or SocialMediaLinc and I also use my name on my Twitter accounts, which means if someone can remember my name but not my business name they should still be able to find me.

Do you attend networking events? Do you follow up with people after these events? Or do you just wait to see them at the next networking event?

Connecting with businesses on social media after networking events can be a great way to stay in touch with people between events and to build relationships with other businesses.

Later this month I will be writing a blog post about how I use LinkedIn to connect with businesses after networking events.

 

How to use Lists on Twitter

How to use Lists on Twitter

Twitter Lists are a great way to be more strategic on Twitter and have lots of different uses, however most people don’t know about them or how to use them.  It is never too early to start using Twitter lists, in fact the sooner you start using lists the better.

On Twitter I try to keep my following/follower ratio as close to 1:1 as I can, when you have been on Twitter for a while and are following lots of accounts, your Twitter feed can become quite cluttered with all the different tweets, so wouldn’t it be good if there was a way to filter that Twitter feed.  Well there is and that is where Twitter lists come in.

There are 2 types of lists, public and private:

  • Public lists can be seen by anyone, when you add an account to a list, that account will get a notification to tell them you have added them to a list and what the list is called.  Anyone can also subscribe to your public lists.
  • Private lists can only be seen by you and when you add an account to a private list, they will not get a notification saying they have been added to a private list.

Lists can be used to organise who you follow so you may have lists for different local areas or subjects or lists of experts that tweet great content.  Having a look at other people’s list can help find people to follow either local to you or that have similar interests to you.

How to Create Lists

How to Create Twitter Lists

Click on your Twitter picture next to the blue tweet button and then click lists.

Twitter Lists

If you click “Member of” you will see the lists that people have added you to.  The first 2 lists in the image below are Private lists as they have a padlock next to them.

How to use twitter lists

 

Now click Create new list.  A list can either be public so anyone can see who is on the list or private (it has a padlock next to it)

Create new list

Give your list a name and decide whether to make the list public or private, then save the list. To add accounts to your list, go to the profile of the account you want to add and click the cog next to the following button, then select Add or remove from lists and choose the list you want to add them to.

Adding an account to a list

If an account has any public lists you will see lists next to likes on their profile.  When using lists   you can either view the members of a list or the tweets by the people on the list.

It is useful once you have set up your lists, to get in the habit of adding accounts to specific lists when you follow them.

Unfortunately it is not possible to send a Direct Message or Tweet to all the people on a list, although I think this would be a very useful function.

Starting to use Lists on Twitter can help you save time and get more strategic, if you would like to find out how I can help you get better results with Twitter or other Social Media sites please get in touch.  Or you might be interested in my 30 days to Twitter Success course which you can find out more about in my Social Media Services section.

What is Social Media Marketing ?

What is Social Media Marketing

What is Social Media Marketing?

When I searched for “What is Social Media Marketing?” in Google the first result I got was this definition from Wikipedia.org, which is a simple description of Social Media Marketing.  In this article I will tell you what I think Social Media Marketing is, the benefits of Social Media Marketing for your business, some common mistakes that some businesses make and how to avoid them.

What is Social Media Marketing?

I think this definition is part of the reason why more businesses don’t use social media marketing, as it seems to be saying that it is for businesses that have a website and are based online, I believe all businesses can use social media to increase awareness of their business from small independent shops in villages and towns to large businesses.

Social media marketing should be part of every business’s marketing strategy.  Social media should be a part of your marketing whether you have a website or not,  and for those businesses that don’t have a website, it is essential to have a good presence on social media so that people can find your business if they search online.

Social media marketing uses various different social media sites to promote your business and services to other businesses, existing clients and prospective customers via two way communication.  Social media marketing should not be used to just broadcast your promotional updates, special offers and buy now messages.  You need to be sharing quality content and information that is so useful or entertaining to your customers and ideal clients, that they share it on their favourite social media networks recommending your business or products to their friends, family and followers, thereby amplifying your marketing for you.

Benefits of Social Media Marketing

Here are some of the benefits to social media marketing:

  • You are in control of what content you share and in what format that goes out.  For example if you share some marketing content and the results for that content aren’t good, then you can change it and try something different, without having to wait till you can change an advert in a magazine or on the radio.
  • Social media marketing is one of the most affordable ways to market your business and products, if you learn how it works and how to do it well.
  • You can use social media marketing even if you don’t have a website.  In fact a well thought out Facebook business page can be used to provide some of the information you would have on a website such as opening times, contact details, address, products and services you provide etc.
  • Social media marketing is a great way to increase brand awareness and connect with other businesses and ideal clients.

Is your Social Media Marketing on track

Common mistakes businesses make with social media marketing:

  • They assume that just because their business isn’t on social media that nobody will be talking about their business on social media, big mistake.  People could be talking about your business, you just don’t know what they are saying, whether it is good or bad.
  • Businesses do not have a social media strategy, they don’t know what their goals are or what to measure to see if they are meeting those goals.
  • Being on the wrong social media site for their business
  • Being on lots of social media sites but not doing any of them well or strategically
  • Broadcasting their business message rather than having two way conversations with their followers
  • Automating everything and not ever being on social media
  • Sharing mediocre content rather than original top quality content that stands out
  • Having a social media strategy but not integrating it with the business’s main marketing plan

There are many other mistakes businesses make on social media but most mistakes can be avoided by getting appropriate training and having a social media marketing strategy in place.

If you would like to work with me to create a social media strategy for your business or you would like training on a certain social media site please get in touch via my contacts page.

 

How to use Social Media to promote your holiday accommodation

 

Social Media for tourist accommodation

Social Media is a great marketing tool for any tourism business, whether you are a B & B, Hotel, Self-catering let or tourist attraction.  It can save you money on your advertising budget and get better results, if done well with a strategy behind it.  Social Media can increase brand awareness, be used to add value for customers and prospective customers and helps your business stay in existing customers newsfeed, so that when they are planning their next holiday there you will be.

However, sometimes you are so busy working in your business that you haven’t got time to think about Social Media and it is just easier to continue paying for the adverts that you have always done, especially when everyone else is doing the same thing.  But with a little extra time and thought you can use Social Media to help your business stand out from the rest.

Therefore, I have written this article to get you thinking how you could use Social Media to promote your business to your ideal customers and get better results from the time you put in.

Social Media works best if it is fully integrated into all your other marketing activities, whether they are online or offline, make sure all your marketing material such as leaflets or adverts include follow us on Facebook, Twitter @….  Equally make sure that there are links (and they work) to your Social Media accounts on your website, on your email newsletters and at the bottom of the emails you send out.

Facebook Page

Use your Facebook page to tell people what is going on in the area.  Share information about things that are happening this week and weekend, for visitors who are staying with you, to give them ideas of what they could do during their stay.  Also share events that are happening in the future for people that are planning a holiday in the future.  As someone who uses Social Media to research and plan holidays, this is very valuable for prospective clients and if I came across a holiday let sharing this sort of information, that made my life easier and saved me time, I would be more likely to book my holiday with that place.

Here are some ideas of the sort of things that prospective customers would be interested in:

  • Places to eat
  • National Trust properties
  • English Heritage properties
  • Local attractions for children
  • Local Market days
  • Good places to go shopping
  • What’s on at the Cinema and the Theater
  • Things to do on a rainy day
  • Museums and galleries
  • Local shows and festivals
  • Swimming pools
  • Indoor play areas, ten pin bowling, laser quest
  • Local beaches
  • Nature reserves

Below is the type of Facebook update you might want to share.

Visit Lincoln Steak & Chips

Think of all the different types of leaflets that you might have available to visitors and see which ones of those have links to their Social Media.  Hopefully you will have an idea of the sort of things that your ideal visitors like, whether they are families with small children or older people without children, so you will be able to tailor the content to what they will be interested in.  If you aren’t sure what your ideal customers visit the area for, why not send a short questionnaire out to visitors that have stayed with you in the past.

You can follow other local attractions pages via your page so that you can easily and quickly share their content, you could also create a list of dates of certain annual events so you are sharing the right events in plenty of time.

Don’t forget to share content that is relevant to your establishment, such as the beautiful view from the bedroom window or pictures of the lovely homemade cake and cup of tea that is available on their arrival or the yummy breakfast full of local produce.

Twitter

Follow lots of local attractions, places to eat, local tourist accounts that share great content and retweet their tweets about what is going on locally.  Then sprinkle in your own tweets about the best places to shop or have a cream tea in your local area, again always think of how you can add value to existing and prospective visitors.  Also by retweeting other people’s content they may retweet your promotional tweets.

Pinterest

Pinterest is a site that is very good for any tourism related businesses, as there is nothing better when you are planning a holiday or weekend away to pin a few things to your places I want to go board, there to refer to when you are actually ready to book the holiday.  Pinterest is a site where you can organise and pin images from a website, so that you can refer back to them at a late time.  The site is very inspirational and aspirational and some people use it to organise things they want to do or own some day.  If an image is pinned properly, when you double click the image on Pinterest it will go straight to the page on the website it was pinned from.

If you have great images on your own website you could create a board all about your property, then have boards for places to eat locally, things to do, places to see etc.  Giving your clients an online brochure of things to do when they come and stay with you, similiar the image of the boards below.

Pinterest Boards Lincolnshire

Instagram

Instagram is great if you have the time and love taking pictures with your phone, Instagram posts gets lots of engagement via likes and comments but unlike Pinterest there is only one clickable link and that is in the person’s or business’ profile.  You can type links into a description but it won’t be clickable.  Also unlike other Social Media sites sharing other people’s post can’t be done within the app itself, you have to use a regram app and you have to have the permission of the other person to regram their pictures.  That said Instagram is great for increasing brand awareness and is great if your ideal customers are under 30.

I hope this article has given you some ideas on how you can use Social Media to promote your business and give your clients and prospective clients useful information about the local area.  If you would like to work with me either for training on a specific Social Media platform or to work on your Social Media strategy do get in touch or take a look at my Social Media Services page.  Also if you have found this post useful please do share it via your favourite Social Media site.

What is Periscope?

What is Periscope?

Up Periscope?  Most people will think of a Periscope as the device on a submarine that goes above the sea to enable the crew to see if there are any ships about.  Some people may remember making a periscope at school in science when studying how light works.

However Periscope is also a new app which allows you to broadcast live video streaming.

“Periscope – explore the world through someone else’s eyes!”

Periscope went live for iOS in March 2015 and for Android users in May 2015, at the end of August 2015 Periscope had over 13 million users and continues to grow.  I have just recently joined Periscope and so far have done 10 scopes, so I am still learning how Periscope works.  Initially, I didn’t think that I could use Periscope for my business, however I saw a Periscope by Denise Duffield Thomas that she had put on YouTube and she was talking to the camera and interacting with the viewers.  This inspired me to upgrade my phone so that I could use the Periscope app.

Below is a Periscope I recorded and uploaded to YouTube, it is an unedited version, so you can see me interacting with people, going off topic and generally rambling on.

Benefits of Periscope

I did my first scope talking to camera and it was really fun.  One of the benefits of Periscope is that when you are talking to camera live, you are being you, without a script and this helps you connect with your viewers.  It is a great way to showcase your knowledge and instantly interact with the live viewers.  Also because it is live there is less pressure to be perfect, as most people are either scoping when they are out and about or in their office.

One of the main benefits to Periscope is that it is in the now and people can interact with you live, asking you questions and answering questions you ask them.  However when doing a live Periscope it can be difficult to interact with people and stay on track with what you are talking about.

You can also show behind the scenes of your business or showcase your products live to your followers.

Periscope Basics

To broadcast (live video stream) on Periscope you will need a relatively new smart phone, so for Samsung users that is a Samsung 5 or newer, not sure about other smart phones.  If you don’t want to upgrade your phone you can watch Periscopes on your laptop, but you’ll only be able to find scopes if someone has tweeted about them.  Search #Periscope on Twitter to see some scopes.  The basics of how to use Periscope in this article are based on Android rather than iOS operating system.

Periscope-home-screen

The home screen shows recent broadcasts by people you follow.

To start your own Scope press the little red camera button at the bottom right of the screen.  You will then see the screen below.  Make sure you add a good descriptive title that will encourage people to watch your scope.  If you are on Twitter click the Twitter icon and share it on Twitter.  Then click Start Broadcast.

Start-broadcast

To start with you will be filming what is in front of your camera or what you are looking at and this will be used as the preview on Periscope so think what that will be, don’t point the camera at the ground.  Ensure your camera is in the portrait position rather than landscape.  If you want to get the camera to switch to recording you speaking, tap the top right corner of the screen.  Don’t wait for people to join the scope before you speak, say hello and thank people who are watching on replay for joining and introduce yourself and what you will be talking about.  You can talk for as long as you want on a scope.  You will get notifications at the bottom left of the screen when people join and if they type a comment, on the right side of the screen you might see a shower of coloured hearts. Although neither of these will be seen on a replay which has been saved to a phone, as in the YouTube video of my Periscope tips for beginners above.

While you are watching a scope you can interact by giving people hearts by tapping the screen. You will be assigned a different colour each time you log on to to a scope.  There are no limits to the number of hearts you can give someone, so be generous.  Sometimes if you join a very popular Periscope you might not be able to comment.  To comment tap the bottom left hand corner where it says “Say something…”

You can share a live Periscope or a replay by swiping the screen up and clicking share broadcast where you can share on Twitter or to your Periscope followers.

How-to-share-a-Periscope

If you haven’t watched a live Periscope here is a screenshot of the hearts and comments on a Periscope by Alex Pettitt, who I recommend you follow on Periscope for great tips.

Alex-Pettitt-on-Periscope

When watching a replay on Periscope you can still give hearts by tapping the screen but you can’t comment.

After a live Periscope has ended it is available to view on Periscope for 24 hours, then it is unavailable to watch unless you have recorded it to your phone.  To save your Periscope broadcasts to your phone on Android go to your profile, by going to the group of people icon (search) and then click the person in the circle at the top right of the screen. Then go to Settings (cog icon) and swipe the Autosave Broadcast at the bottom so it turns blue, now every Periscope you broadcast will be saved to your phone.  Make sure to download them to your computer regularly or you might run out of memory on your phone.

You can do a private Periscope and only invite certain people that follow you, although I haven’t done a private scope yet or been invited to one, but this could be used to do a group coaching call or other training for a group of clients.

Periscope-Search

To find people to follow on Periscope tap the 3 people icon and then at the bottom right click the magnifying glass and type someone’s Twitter username and then when you find them just tap the icon with a person with a + next to their name, see image above.  To follow people that are on a Scope swipe the screen up and tap on a user to see their profile and follow them.

Is your poor Money Mindset influencing your business?

Self belief equals success

Do you want your business to be more successful?

Have you taken lots of courses to help take your business to the next level? That haven’t worked.

Are you working harder and harder? But not getting the results you want.

Do you ever wonder whether it is you and maybe you shouldn’t be self-employed?

Well I may just have something that will help or rather someone.

Firstly the main thing stopping you and your business from being more successful, is you!  It is all about what you believe you deserve?  To be more successful and get the results you want, you need to change what you believe.

Start being conscious of the things you say to yourself, especially when things don’t go as you want them too.

Do any of these beliefs sound familiar?

  • I have to work hard to earn money
  • I don’t deserve to earn lots of money because I am not clever enough (insert whatever not good enough phrase is your favourite)
  • My product isn’t good enough, no-one will want to buy it
  • I don’t have a big email list so no one will buy my new offering
  • Who do I think I am running my own business, I should get a proper job like everyone else
  • I don’t deserve to earn money doing what I love, no one else I know does
  • You may have other limiting beliefs that are stopping you from being successful

Changing core beliefs is as easy or hard as you believe it to be, however having a map to follow by someone who has changed their own beliefs about money and what they deserve, who has helped lots of women to change their beliefs, could be just what you need.  Therefore I would like to introduce you to the awesome Denise Duffield Thomas author of Get Rich, Lucky Bitch and creator of the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp.

I joined the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp in July 2014.  I dipped in and out for a while and didn’t take any action.  Hint: You need to take action to get results!  Denise is good but she can’t do the work for you, you have to take action to change.  I still have a long way to go at getting rid of my limiting beliefs, but her is what I have got from the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp so far:

  • Inspiration and support from Denise and the other Lucky Bitches in the Bootcamp Private Facebook group
  • A cheque for £300 from an unexpected source that I wouldn’t have gone for before doing the Bootcamp
  • I have increased my prices and am working with more clients
  • Successfully launched my first e-course 30 Days to Twitter Success
  • Working on my limiting beliefs about money, I think this will be on going for a good while yet
  • I am more confident
  • I am more aware of the need to put time and effort into to keeping my energy positive
  • I am more self aware of negative self talk and nip it in the bud before it escalates
  • I am getting better at doing my accounts quarterly, rather than all at the end of the year

Recently Denise has re-opened the re-vamped Lucky Bitch Bootcamp, so if you need help with your money mindset then join the Lucky Bitch Bootcamp today!
