Remember that inner geek you tried so hard to leave at home when you were in high school?
Or that angry misfit in you that was dying to come out but got stuffed back into the box every time you tried to blend in?
They may not be good for high school survival, but turns out there may be a thing or two we can learn from them to stand out and get more clients:
1. Channel Your Geek for Client Care & Acquisition
The cool ones pretend they don’t care. They pretend they’ve so many friends that they don’t give a crap about anyone.
The geek remembers everything and brings you exactly what you said you want for your birthday. Even if he had to do the uncool thing like, visiting 5 stores to track it down.
If you’re selling something more than a “commodity,” especially services of a highly personal nature such as coaching, healing or consulting, trust and relationship plays an important role in conversion.
Your clients feel vulnerable in such relationships. They need to TRUST you enough to open up and work with you.
TRUST happens between one human being and another human being.
Trust cannot be automated.
Trust doesn’t happen when you isolate yourself on a pedestal and hoping this autoresponder or that funnel will get you a premium private client without lifting a finger.
Someone who purchases a $17 eBook can very well turn into a $10k client, if you continue the conversation and build the relationship.
Building trust takes time and genuine interaction. Humanity.Vulnerability. Honesty.
Pay attention to people, faces and names across your mailing list, social media and customer list. E.g. Make your peeps feel warm and fuzzy by mentioning something they post on Facebook when you send them a personal note to check in.
Say hello to customers who purchased your digital products. Send them a personal email to see if they have question about your product and whether you can help with anything.
(Yeah, like, you actually copy and paste the email address, type something and hit send. People can tell automated email from personal email. Most appreciate a personal touch in this age of impersonal automation.)
Check in with potential clients you had conversations with in the past and mention specifics about those interactions. See how they’ve progressed since, and what you can do to help.
Keep tab on your correspondences. Take notes and GIVE A CRAP.
Some relationships are “slow cook.” Not all interactions need to end with a sale right away. Some one can become a client a year or two after an interaction if they leave the conversation with a good impression.
It’s people, not easy-bake oven.
Interact like a human being, not a drone clone sales funnel.
There’s no need to pretend you’re making 10,000 sales a month (if you aren’t) and you’re so damn busy that you can’t check in with your peeps like a human being (at least with a strategically selected handful.)
When your peeps reach out and know that they’re getting a response from the person they want an answer from, you lower the “barrier” erected by virtual interaction.
You build trust and relationship essential for them to further engage with you.
Take note on little things about past clients, potential clients, customers and “random” names on your list. Like all geeks worth her salt.
Mention these details in your correspondences. I use a simple spreadsheet to keep track. I search my email folders to make sure I get the facts straight. I give a crap about my peeps as people, not numbers.
Taking the time to give a crap is what sets YOU apart, not a sparkly sales funnel with a dozen of permutations on up-sell, down-sell and cross-sell.
2. Channel Your Angry Misfit for Unique Positioning
We often regurgitate what other people are already saying in our industry to make sure we’re not being offensive or controversial. That’s human instinct to blend in; to make sure we don’t get kicked out by our caveman tribe.
This isn’t good for marketing. You sound like everyone else and why would people want to buy your stuff or work with you?
Blending in doesn’t make economic sense. The more you sound like everyone else, the more you’d be treated as a “commodity” and the less price elasticity you can get.
You can’t define your positioning by just doing research either. Your positioning is uniquely YOU, and how can you define YOU just by looking at data – aka, other people’s world view?
I’ve seen people trying to define their positioning by drawing lines and plotting dots in quadrants, finding a gap and backing/squeezing themselves into it. Sounds very passive and reactive to me – what do you think?
Staying “straight and narrow” so you don’t stick out, or blending in with the cool crowd so you don’t get picked on can be good for high school survival.
But let’s get rid of that fear of being criticized now that we’ve our big boy/girl panties on.
When I help my clients who’ve struggled for years to nail their unique positioning, staying “level headed” often doesn’t work.
Really good stuff comes out of their mouth when I get them super riled up.
When they throw caution into the wind and just tell me what piss them off – without worrying about putting what they say into marketing-kosher materials, we find the gems that define who they are and why they’re different.
Here’s ONE simple exercise to find your unique positioning without ~What riles you up about your industry?
~Why aren’t people who work with your competition aren’t getting results?
~What frustrate your peeps most about your industry and competition?
~What do you do differently that create results and avoid the frustrations?
(Some people are better at getting riled up when they speak. If that’s you, record your rant and then come back to it for the gems.)
Write down 5 – 10 titles for blog posts you’d write based on the stuff that came out of the brain dump… no fear, no doubt, no compromise.
Write them down as statements. Like they’re the truest truth for you.
Somewhere in there are your unique POVs.
Map those POVs back to the problem you solve and your ideal clients’ desired outcome… you get your unique positioning.

Questions You Must Ask
Whether you are a distributor or a manufacturer, stock happens to be the most important aspect of the trading business that you are in. To secure a warehouse premises that is just perfect for your needs there are things you must put into perspective first. Just because a warehouse is spacious enough does not usually mean that it is what your company needs. There are so many other factors that should be considered before the final decision is made.
What commodity specific facilities does it have?
Products are not the same. If you are in the food industry, then you must be extra careful with the warehouse you choose because food items are usually perishable and they can go bad without the best facilities in place. If your products require frozen, refrigerated and conditioned storage, then this is what you need to make sure the warehouse has for you. Consider your products and the perfect storage conditions for them and then choose a warehouse that will not disappoint you at the end of the day.
Apart from storage, what other services can I enjoy?
Warehouses are so competent today that they offer much more than just storage to make the process even more convenient for you the client. Apart from co-packing, and trans-loading, you will actually find warehouses that offer distribution and fulfillment services. With such a warehouse, you will have peace of mind with things such as orders because you simply need to instruct and guide distribution even without the need to be present. Some make it even easier by devising supply chain proposal that can be customized to match your needs to get the perfect solution for your goods.
How sizeable is the warehouse and its impact?
The size of the warehouse can determine the storage options that you have. Remember that most warehouses stack up products in metal racks from the floor to the ceiling to save space and this might not always be a good option depending on the products you have. Organizing the inventory on the floor could be a more suitable option, although this means taking up more space and could limit the amount of stock you can have stored in one go. Also important to remember when looking at the size is that you can find warehouses that are sizeable enough for your company needs only, but others are too large that the empty space could end up being shared by other customers. Consider if this is something you would be okay with or you would rather pay even for the empty space when you choose a warehouse that’s bigger than your needs.
When looking at the best warehouse for your needs, always think long term, so that you do not end up choosing one you are likely to outgrow too quickly. Think about potential expansion of the warehouse if you intend to hire, storage for a considerable length of time, so you can be sure you are covered.

Why Start A Carpet Cleaning Business?
First of all you have to ask yourself why do you want to start your own business? Many people start businesses because of circumstances such as when they have been made redundant. Other people just get to the stage in their lives where they want a change from what they have been doing for years. Some people like the idea of being their own boss and in control of the business. Now that you have made your decision you have to decide on the type of business you are planning to tackle. In this article we are going to discuss the starting up of a carpet cleaning business so you can become an expert carpet cleaner.
As with most businesses you will have to acknowledge what your budget will be. You can use your redundancy money if you are lucky to have any or you can go to the bank for a business loan. with your budget determined you can now go shopping.
Choosing the right carpet cleaning equipment
There are many carpet cleaning types of machinery out on the market but the one common piece of equipment you will need is a van to carry everything. A small van will normally suffice. You can purchase a carpet cleaner for a few hundred euros but as we all know, you get what you pay for. Carpet cleaners can range from a small wet and dry vacuum suction cleaner to a specialised water extraction push or pull unit. There is also an option of a truck mounted unit which could set you back €20,000 or €30,000. You also have consider your market when buying a carpet cleaner. If you are only going to be attending household carpets a big industrial cleaner won’t suit but if you are going commercial an industrial cleaner is a must. When you think you have the selected the right carpet cleaner Google is great for finding a review of the cleaner so you know what you are getting. Your choice of cleaner could be the difference between a successful business and a failed one.
Everyone thinks that carpet cleaning is just a matter of obtaining the correct equipment and going at it. Think again. I would recommend attending a carpet cleaning course if there is one in your area. You won’t believe how intricate it is when you get in to it. This training will also show you how to clean upholstery and also rugs and mats.
Carpets are made from various materials which can range from man made plastic materials to pure natural materials such as wool. Some carpets are a mixture of both. In saying that before you attempt to clean a carpet you need this information but after a while you will be able to make an intelligent guess. If you get it wrong the consequences could be huge. Imagine cleaning a pure wool carpet with the wrong solution and a customer informing you that the whole carpet has shrunk!!!! There are many companies out there that will supply you with the information you require.
