So, I am way behind on this challenge, but I am attempting to make it up, by simply answering the questions as best possible with what I know so far.
Day 10, What are the key ways in which you want to make money online in your chosen business or which are the key online revenue streams you want to focus on in your existing business?
This one is hard, because I haven’t put much thought into it. But, overall, I would like to make money online by satisfying my clients. I want to be their “go to girl” when it comes to event planning. However, I want them to feel that they are receiving excellent service for the price they are paying. That is also my struggle, I really have no basis for how much to charge my first client. But, I will learn this through more research.
Day 11: Knowing what business model to choose and why? What business model is best for you and what one revenue stream is most feasible?
Selling myself and my expertise in managing events is what my business model will revolve around. I will need to use the “active” revenue stream, however I’m not sure how I will accomplish this as I really don’t want see myself as the coaching, consulting, copywriting, teaching, workshop kind of person. I need to work on this one some more. But, again you’ve given me so much to think about it!
I especially like that you shared your one page business model template. Once I gather up the time to put all of the key items I’ve learned from this challenge, that will be one of the first things I turn to.
Here are some questions to ask yourself and others who know you to develop your USP:
1.What are you better at than anyone else? The details of event planning. You can be a good event planner, but if you are not the best at “the dets” then your not a “great” event planner.
2.What do you enjoy doing the most? I actually enjoy working with brides the most. I think my favorite part of events is actually working on site the day of or week of the actual event. Seeing all the hard work become reality is my favorite part!
3.What do (or could) you provide that no one else is providing? I need to think about this one. But this one is going to be the prompt for one of my website sections, because this is what most people want to know!
4.What annoys people the most about your industry or blog area? Probably that I can never finish a thought, because I am always chasing my one year old.
5.What is remarkable about you? My ability to communicate with all types of people and my ability to always make people laugh. I also have the ability to keep people engaged in conversation and always laughing or smiling.
6.Do you have an unusual combination of elements? Yes
7.Do you have a big personality? Yes
Now write your USP (Unique Special Proposition) statement. Take action.
I am unique and different because I provide organization through a detailed timeline of activities for every event I plan. My timelines are unique, creative, and are the key to planning a successful event, which no one else in my field provides. No one else can or will provide this because they do not have the expertise or organizational skills I have. I also have a bright, BIG personality and by partnering with me, your event planning will be simple, FUN, and successful.
Day 13 Blog Challenge to accept in 3 easy steps
1. Write a response blog post to this question:
What three things would you most like your website to have and how will you go about getting them?
I would like my website to:
1) Reflect my personality
2) Tell my story
3) Allow people to understand my passion for events
However, I’ve realized that in order to get the above, I need to answer a lot of questions for myself first.
After going through these posts, I realize that I have a lot to think about. I need to gather my thoughts and try to focus on what I really want to achieve through my business. Wow. This is very challenging. But, in time I trust that I can get these questions answered. Eventually.
I apologize to all the professional, successful online business owners, I wish I had some more direction. But, I am happy that I am starting somewhere!
On another note, I ran 13 very hilly miles yesterday and actually felt FANTASTIC! Oh, and all this was done in the South Texas Heat! Boy, was I drenched. But, I’ll do it, whatever it takes to get me to finish line of my first marathon! Cheers.
