Let’s talk about them.

Is this you?

It’s been busy, and exciting, but knowing what to do next and who to trust is even harder. Speaking of harder, there’s that thing about getting customers, knowing how to sell, what marketing you should, and shouldn’t, be doing. That’s just for starters!

Then there’s getting better at networking, getting your online marketing to work and the list goes on. What’s more, you were supposed to do this in a normal working week, and thought it would be less stressful than your old job?

So you need help to take your first steps, build a solid foundation, improve your marketing and selling techniques.

How many of these have you asked yourself?

  • How do I sell more, without dropping the price?
  • How do I get a website to reflect what I want to sell?
  • How do I get known?
  • How do I stop spending time on things that don’t deliver income?
  • Which is the most effective form of marketing, and how do I get started?
  • Should I use digital marketing?
  • How should I deal with my books and accounts, easily and effectively?
  • How do I make sure my first year is a success, so I can build on it in the future?
  • What about GDPR?
  • How do I get it all done?
  • What should I focus on, today?

If you ask yourself these questions, it’s time to join the ‘first steps‘ programme. ‘First steps‘ is a programme to improve your business development skills, get you focused on delivery and help you see ways around problems you can’t see at the moment. What’s more you’ll be working with similar minded business owners, and learning from them too.

Membership lasts for a year, will reduce your worries and help you build a solid foundation for your business’ future.

I would like to thank Jon for the help, and direction he has given me on a new business venture. I found myself and my business frozen like a deer in the headlights of a juggernaut. Jon prodded me with various questions and helped me to clarify the niche my business is in and how I can use the knowledge and contacts I currently have to market and sell my product.

I have recently met Jon who has given me valuable and relevant focus on my new business. His approach to developing ideas and thoughts already floating around my mind into realistic, structured and achievable goals was enlightening.

Improving your business mind.

You are at the core of your business, so your ‘first steps’ programme includes a year of masterclasses to focus on you, your skills and how you use your resources. We will start off with an inspirational planning meeting, so you can start to see the light again, and work towards it.

Changing what you do involves changing how you think and changing your habits; that can be tough and takes time, but it’s the only real way to change things – instant fix magical solutions don’t work.

Improving your business body.

Websites are the centre of most modern businesses, so your ‘first steps’ membership includes practical “things” to give your business an immediate boost. Your one year membership includes a new website and learning how to use it well, if you want one.

‘First steps’ membership also includes new marketing materials for you, so you can immediately improve your business image.

‘Next steps’ mastermind club

Join the next steps mastermind club to get back control of your life, spend less time worrying about what you need to do,  and actually grow your business.

What do all these things mean?

 

Immediate help with strategy - "Clarity on how to move forward"

Your membership starts with a strategy and planning meeting so that you can start to think differently about how your business will move forward, and see what your next steps need to be.

This inspirational meeting will help you clarify exactly what you need, the way your need to do it, and how to do it. It’s a two hour face to face meeting that will, affirm what you’re trying to do and ensure you’re taking the right path.

We will investigate what is, and isn’t working for you. I’ll help you to create a tactical marketing plan, a sales plan that will help you get more customers to sign up and a series of actions that you can take without feeling overwhelmed.

It takes place right at the beginning of your membership. You’ll end it feeling clear, focused and motivated to succeed.

5 day phone support - "Help when you need it most"

When those little panic moments happen and you worry about “what should I do” or “how do I deal with this”, you now have somebody to ask. I want you to succeed in your business, so all members are entitled to unlimited phone support. It’s all about helping you worry less and achieve more.

Monthly masterclasses - "Learn how experts do it"

Throughout the year you get monthly masterclasses to keep building your skills and keep you on track. There’s help on business development, sales skills, using your website, getting more done, maximising exhibitions, increasing your confidence, marketing and more. After every masterclass you get an action summary and a recording of the masterclass.

Your website - "Professionally built, owned by you"

If it’s time your website looked more professional and worked better (or even got built), here’s how to get it done. We will build you a new website that you fully own. What’s more we will teach you how to use it, and understand it. You’ll be able to make changes to it, when you need them and you’ll learn how to improve it’s ‘Google rankings’.

It’s worth noting our beliefs about website ownership too – you own the site, the hosting, the domain name and the content. Some web designers make it hell for you if you ever want to change your website, let alone move it elsewhere.

250 new business cards - "Getting more professional"

One of the first things new businesses need is business cards. You need them for your networking meetings and other marketing. The problem is often that a new business doesn’t take the time to get good business cards.

So, if you think it’s about time you had some better business cards, here’s 250 to get you going.

Just knowing Jon is a learning experience. His passion for information backed up with relevant facts and figures shines through making you want to know more.

Jon has helped me better understand my business and myself in the process

I attended one of Jon’s seminars and found them loaded with useful, practical ideas and real life examples.

I will recommend these seminars to business owners or directors keen to improve their bottom line.
