Wowser! A 4-Part Marketing Planner System Designed For Awesome Women Business Owners - is that YOU?
IF YOU BUY A PLANNER EVERY YEAR BUT YOU DITCH IT AFTER A FEW MONTHS EVERY TIME, YOU NEED THE AWESOME MARKETING PLANNER SYSTEM.
Why? Because, unlike most planners out there (those you keep ditching) it's not just a book.
It's not just an online hub with materials.
It's not just accountability tools and reminders.
It's not just a supportive Facebook group, so you never feel alone.
It's all 4. But awesomer. (I know it's not a word, but it is now)
Let me explain: I've worked in marketing since 1993. I realise you may not even have been born then, which makes me feel a little old but what I've learned over all those years is this: Everyone knows they need marketing but hardly anyone does it regularly.
Most people have really good intentions but then they get busy, life takes over and marketing gets pushed to the back of the queue because, well, that's life!
Oh, and did I mention marketing can be very confusing, sometimes expensive and frustratingly time consuming for very little reward. If you're doing it wrong.
OR it can be an amazing part of your business that brings you lovely customers who spend lots of money, regularly and help you build a business you love and that pays you well.
THAT'S WHERE MY AWESOME MARKETING PLANNER SYSTEM COMES IN
PART 1: Your Beautiful A5 Planner*
A very practical but extremely gorgeous A5 marketing planner book that will
make you smile every time you see it - AND that you will actually USE!
It's hardback and spiral bound to withstand life in your handbag / car / house without falling to bits.
It's made with extra-thick paper that is lovely to write on, fab to doodle on and perfect for colouring.
It's got a pink place marker ribbon so you can open your planner right where you left off.
It's got a pink elastic to hold it closed (even when you've stuffed a month's receipts, some pizza coupons and 16 random business cards in there).
*all pictures are artist's impressions - details may differ slightly on the real thing.
The Planny Stuff >>
At the front of your Marketing Planner book you'll find 10+ pages dedicated to helping you grow your business.
I cover business planning, targets and goals, Super Customers, Sales Trains, Social Media, Marketing Planning, Mind Monkeys and more. I've made it easy to understand (I know you're too busy to go looking stuff up) and so you can get up to speed SUPER FAST, I've added LOADS of helpful extra videos, cheat sheets, extra planner sheets and downloadables in the second part of your system, the Planner Portal (more about that in a mo).
Fab Marketing Tips >>
At the start of every month you get a page of fab marketing tips to inspire and motivate you, a lovely colouring page designed by my totally awesome graphic designer, Katherine Reynolds, a month to view page to give you the big picture and a Money & Monthly Focus page.
Super useful calendar >>
Every week in your planner you get:
- a double page calendar spread with time slots for appointments and daily 'to do' section,
- a 'top priorities for that week' section,
- a 'scary thing I'm going to do this week' section,
- a doodly notes section,
- an 'Oops! Carry forward to next week' section,
- a selection of random challenges and a few little surprises,
- a mini month's calendar with that week highlighted
- AND a lovely quote to inspire and motivate you.
Social Media Planner >>
Each week you also get a gorgeous social media planner page and a notes and doodle page so the genius thoughts in your brain can be safely captured before they are lost forever.
Plan ahead >>
At the back you'll find a 2018 spread to help you plan ahead while you wait for your next Awesome Marketing Planner System as well as some more little goodies I think you'll love.
PART 2: The AWESOME planner portal
This is where the added awesome comes into play. Because there is only so much you can fit in a 280 page planner and because a bigger planner might break your favourite handbag and cause sore shoulders, we decided to add all the things you definitely need into your very own online Planner Portal.
It's somewhere you can log in, find teaching videos to help you make the most of your planner book, help yourself to extra planner sheets, downloadable cheat sheets, colouring sheets and other fabulous goodies and TAKE PART IN CHALLENGES AND COMPETITIONS! There's nothing like a bit of competition to keep you motivated in your marketing!
I'll give you seasonal marketing hints and tips throughout the year.
And we'll have a monthly prize draw to win a lovely prize which may or may not be cake.
Did I mention the AWESOME POINTS SYSTEM?
Ooh, you're going to love this. When you log into the Online Planning Portal you'll be able to earn Awesome Points for watching teaching videos, completing challenges, being good at colouring (I know you're a colouring ninja) and lots of other cool stuff - it's all designed to get you to keep coming back because when you keep coming back, it means you're working on your marketing.
And that deserves rewards, obviously. And points make prizes - you'll be able to save up your points and earn goodies. Yay!
PART 3: Bum-Kicking Emails
If having the most gorgeous marketing planning book AND the most amazing, goodie-filled, prize-packed online planning portal wasn't enough to keep you interested, motivated and using your planner then this could make all the difference.
Every week you'll get an email from me. I'll let you know what's new in the Planner Portal, I'll send you seasonal tips to help you with your marketing, I'll share examples of great marketing and I'll remind you to do some marketing. Every week. Even just a tiny bit. I'll nag, I'll kick your bum and I'll help you realise you're not alone.
But mainly I'll kick your bum and make sure you don't ignore your marketing. 'K?
PART 4: The Facebook Group
You'll be invited to my super-special Awesome Planner Group on Facebook where you can hang out with other awesome business owners just like you.
Those competitions and challenges I mentioned earlier? Some of them will take place in the group, as I'll need you to upload pics. Nuff said. And you can join that pretty much right away.
So, are you in?
Oh, you want to know how much it costs?
Well, obviously it's worth about a zillion pounds because, let's face it, how often does a planner make you feel like this? Excited? Happy? A bit squealy? I know! I feel that way too!
But instead of a zillion pounds, it's £34.99 plus P&P
For a whole year's planner system - a book, a planner portal, a Facebook group and bum-kicking emails. Bonkers!
Want to save on postage costs?
A few people have asked if they can buy the planner book as a downloadable PDF and print it themselves to save on postage costs (particularly non-UK ladies).
We have put together an online-only version of the 2017 Awesome Marketing Planner System - it's £17.50 and gives you access to the whole system, right away. Be aware that the pages are full colour and will use up a lot of ink, so it may work out more expensive than the print version even including postage.
Why Listen to Me?
I know a LOT about small business marketing and I know what you need.
I’m Claire Mitchell - I’m a business teacher and an author. I’ve got an MBA from the prestigious Durham University Business School, I’ve been in marketing since 1993 and I’ve been running The Girls Mean Business and helping women grow their business since 2012, so I know my stuff.
Thousands of women have learned about marketing & sales and got GREAT results from my blogs, e-books, classes and courses - they’ve also got more confidence, more focus and a PLAN. What’s not to love?
I’ve been featured in the Huffington post, Marie-Claire, Essentials, Closer and the Guardian. I’ve appeared on Ireland AM, The Apprentice UK, on BBC 2 and Radio One. Facebook invited me to be an inaugural member of their Small Business Client Council. I’ve written one book (SOS- Business Mum’s Survival Guide To The School Holidays) and I’ve got several more up my sleeve (well, in my head and on my computer actually) so watch this space!
