Boldly Showing Up Online – Are you ready to do it?

Too many women entrepreneurs are hiding out online! Are you one of them?

They’re afraid to post selfies. They don’t like the way they look in pictures and videos. They don’t know how to take a good selfie, or what to say in a video. And they hope they can get away with never having to learn how to do it.

I wonder how much of it is conditioning? Are men holding themselves back in the same way? (Probably not.)

Regardless, it’s a huge problem for women. For many, it’s the MAIN REASON they aren’t getting the clients they want.

I see women posting stock photos or graphics but that’s not likely going to get you clients. If it’s working for you – great!

If it’s not – consider this. YOU are your best business asset. Your knowledge, passion and desire to make a difference for people is why you went into business in the first place. People love that. They want to see you, hear your story and understand your expertise before they will buy from you.

I spoke with a nutrition coach recently who was posting lots of pictures of food and facts about what to eat. But that wasn’t getting her clients, and I know exactly why.

She was nowhere in her content. Yet – by definition – her ideal client is someone who wants some handholding, and to be guided through a customized process by a trusted advisor.

There’s a disconnect between posting food pictures and nutrition tips which serves a self-researching DIY person, when your ideal client IS NOT that.

This coach could make a huge difference in her results but showing herself daily talking about nutrition, showing her authority and expertise. She would be demonstrating her coaching style in the way she talks, the energy she gives off and the information she presents.

Her ideal client would have the chance to actually see and experience what working with her would be like, and decide if she is the right nutrition coach for her.

After all, it is her coaching that she’s selling.

I spoke with my friend Ann DeLuca, Confidence Coach for Women, about showing up boldly online, and she shared some tips about it.

Confidence – What a Game Changer!

I met Ann DeLuca a while back at a networking meeting, and she told me she was a Confidence Coach and had written a book called The Confidence Recipe. It stuck with me because my confidence was in a bit of a slump at that time. After having taken a few years off for some major health and family stuff, I was not getting my coaching business back to where it was before my break.

Selling That’s Authentic, Easy and Truly From a Place of Service

“How do I sell without being salsey?” This is the most common question I’ve gotten over the decades. You aren’t alone if you feel nervous and awkward about “selling”. Tons of people have that creepy, pushy, used-car-salesman association and I SO get it! I was SO afraid of selling when I started my knitwear business in the early 90s. In fact, I worked at the store my sweaters were sold at, and when customers were
