Are you planning on launching something and you want to build a marketing calendar to help support the process?
Are you completely stuck? Not only not exactly sure what goes on it, but feeling like, if you did have that step-by-step, day-by-day process you’d feel like an elephant was dancing on your chest?
Most likely there’s something coming up that needs to be dealt with even before you can build the marketing calendar and start to implement the steps.
Marketing isn’t hard. It’s actually pretty straight forward. The hard part is in getting yourself to do it, and doing it consistently. If you are struggling there, you are definitely not alone.
Ask yourself what seems to be in your way… what are the feelings that come up when you think about taking daily actions to market your business?
Is it fear that people won’t like you, your service or your product? Are you worried it won’t work. Are you rebelling against any kind of structure or system, even though you know you probably thrive when you have the right one in place?
What is it for you?
Once you start to get clear on that, you actually open the door to the possibility that you can build the plan and follow through. But you need to figure out this first step.
If you’re ready to shift this, then set a timer for 15 minutes and take a pen to paper and write out everything that comes up, all your thoughts, resistance, feelings, fears etc around marketing.
Then, take each individual piece and examine it logically. Give yourself a supportive, but firm talking to. You can do this. Those thoughts are not real, they haven’t happened yet (for most of us), and it’s essentially your ego lying to you about reality. If you don’t try, you’ll never know.
Give it a shot, and let me know how it goes. :- )
And, if you’re ready to learn more about dealing with your demons, building those marketing systems, marketing strategies and marketing calendar, then you’ll definitely want to sign up for early bird notification for the upcoming Marketing in the Morning™ program. I’m working on all the pieces now and will be choosing a start day soon (probably sometime in Sept) for the first run. There will be special stuff for people who dig in and go through this first round with me, so if it sounds interesting, get on the list and you can decide when you have more information.
