Sales Mindset – Increase your impact by selling with soul and not sleaze!

Sales Mindset – Increase your impact by selling with soul and not sleaze!

An event to help business for good sell without selling their souls, with Tim Jones – The Grow Good Guy.

Taking my own learnings from way longer than I’d choose to admit in a career as a professional salesperson, I’ve curated this special event to help business for good sell without selling their souls!

This modern approach to selling WITH soul gets to the heart of why most impact driven businesses don’t like sales – becasue they think it’s a bit yucky!

The result is that they don’t make enough impact because they are in survival, not thrival mode!

By the end of this inspirational and motivational session though, we’ll have turned that around.

By the end of our time together you will:

1. Know the 4 beliefs that need to be aligned for successful selling;

2. Be aware of the 5 specific sales based limiting beliefs that stop you from making the impact you must & how to overcome them;

3. Know how we turn up to work mentally affects our performance

4. Know how to create a peak state of mind and maintain that for increased performance.

Webinar 3: ‘Optimising Digital Advertising’

Learn how you can take advantage of the opportunities to advertise your business using paid digital advertising platforms.

We will be keeping this as strategic as possible. We will talk more about what kinds of strategies could be applied to these platforms, rather than delving into the fiddly technical details (which you should only commit to exploring once you’ve worked out the right platform(s) for your business).

During this workshop you will:

  1. Establish whether you actually need paid advertising and learn about the symbiosis between organic and paid marketing.
  2. Learn about the bidding system and the metrics you need to know in order to measure paid marketing success
  3. Find out how to calculate what budget you need for paid advertising
  4. Discover which of the 4 main types (and 15 subtypes) of online paid advertising are best for your organisation.
  5. Take a journey a little deeper into Google Ads Search Marketing, including 18 ways to optimise your account at Campaign, Ad Group and Ad level.

This workshop will be best suited to those who are either completely new to paid online advertising, or who have been running some paid advertising and want to confirm they’re on the right path.
