How To Create Irresistible Products & Services

Most people start their business for a variety of reasons.  Some are really passionate about something and they are committed to sharing it.

Some want to improve the quality of their life and the lives around them.  Some are just looking for a way to make money.  Some just want to make a difference.

No matter how they get started, most people decide what they want to offer and then go find the market to offer it to. This is the hard way!

How do you improve your odds? How do you become one of the very successful thriving businesses? You do what they do!

Do Your Homework and  Identify a Profitable Niche Market First!

Then, find out what the people in your target market really need!

The solution specifically fulfills the needs of your niche market. It soothes their aches and pains. It satisfies their desires and grants their wishes. It’s just what they are looking for and they are hungry for it.

You may find that you already offering the products and/or services that they may need. Is some cases, all you have to do is tweak your sales letter, benefits or pricing. You may also find that the solution doesn’t exist or if it does, it needs some improvement. At any rate, create the solution that solves their problems and give it to them.

Often times, many small businesses attempt to offer too many types of services or lines of products. In a lot of cases, they do this because it generates revenue and help them to survive.

However, if you don’t have the money and resources to do them all well, you may find yourself trapped or boxed into doing things that you don’t want to do, thereby robbing you of your power, performance & productivity.

Let’s look at a simple way of creating your products & services matrix. It is helpful to break it down into the following 3 categories. Each category represents a unique stage in the marketing process and moves your prospects through the sales pipeline.

Promotional (Free or Low-Cost Offerings)

  • Special Reports, eBooks & Newsletters
  • Free 90 Minute Preview/Overview Workshop
  • Complementary or Evaluation Sessions

Entry Level (Low-Cost – Affordable Offerings)

  • Low Cost eBook, Audio or Video Series
  • Full Day Interactive Workshop/Seminar

Premium (Higher Priced Offerings)

  • Small Group Mentoring Programs
  • Private Coaching & Consulting Services
  • Advanced Workshops & Boot Camps

I recommend that you streamline your offering of products and services, create a successful marketing system & fulfill the needs of your niche market. This approach insures the success and longevity of your business.

By using this method, you will be creating a systematic approach for attracting new prospects, providing them with substantial value and converting them into long tem paying clients.

It allows you to create credibility and establish yourself as an expert in eyes of your niche market. It also provides you with the ability to provide your clients with an effective solution until they are ready to invest in your premium products and services.

Now, let’s look at each category a little deeper and identify a few examples for use as a model for your business. I highly recommend that you create your initial solution to their problems using the “how-to”, “step-by-step” or “key list” solution theme.

Here are a few examples from some of my clients:

  • “Six Keys to Living the Golden Life”
  • “8 Key Strategies of Highly Effective Business Owners”
  • “21 Ways to De-Clutter Your Office”
  • “The MicroBiz Guide to Internet Marketing – 11 Effective Strategies for Attracting New Clients Online!”
  • “The Courageous Woman – Six Lessons On Moving the Mountains in Your Life”

Can you see that using this concept will make it really clear to your prospective clients how you can help them accomplish their goals?

Here are few more solution themes that you may recognize from these best selling book titles:

  • “The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”
  • “Rich Dad – Poor Day – What The Rich Teach Their Kids About Money – That The Poor And Middle Class Do Not!”

Taking Charge of Your Positive Direction

Have you ever wondered how does what we say today impact our lives tomorrow?

Our choice of words can move us in a direction toward or away from effective personal and professional relationships and we are in charge of that choice. Positive direction means that the words we speak steer us toward the successes or outcomes that we want or need with others.

In this book, after years of developing programs and processes of CONSISTENT POSITIVE DIRECTIONTM, J. Bert Freeman identifies the impact of choosing positive direction and shows us skills and approaches that we can use right away to build those important relationships.

Taking Charge of Your Positive Direction by J. Bert Freeman

Book Synopsis

Taking Charge of Your Positive DirectionCONSISTENT POSITIVE DIRECTION is described as speaking, writing, learning and impacting reality toward the goals, achievements, results, accomplishments or outcomes that really matter. These skills and approaches came from years of learning, developing and teaching ways to interact successfully with others, when what we have to say really matters.

Chapters 1 and 2 of this book provides you with the know-how to use the sentence to sentence skills of CONSISTENT POSITIVE DIRECTION, called Verbal POSITIVE APPROACHTM. You will see how the choice of words that we speak can either keep us away from or move us closer to where we need to be.

The skills of Verbal POSITIVE APPROACH help us stay consistent in talking toward the goals, achievements, results, accomplishments or outcomes that we want/need for our lives and the lives of others.

Subsequent chapters show that the power in using these skills goes beyond adjusting words and sentences; it reaches to the depths of human interaction.

For example, Chapter 3, “Above the Clouds – The Positive Directions of Your Attitude”, coaches you on how to express any attitude in a positive direction, whatever your feelings. You learn how your abilities for respect, listening and learning have a powerful impact on taking your attitude above the clouds.

Chapter 6, “The Essentials for Interaction”, consists of approaches you can use to move things forward and get things done. You will see how CONSISTENT POSITIVE DIRECTION connects to research that shows your abilities to influence future successes.

Chapter 8, “Whole Brain Positive Direction”, examines how to use differences and similarities in relationships and learning, based on our brain tendencies and thinking styles.

The titles of chapters 9, “The Power of ME” and 10, “How to be Tough Using Positive Direction Stuff”, speak for themselves and delve into managing expectation, effort, and esteem (chapter 9) and exercising endurance, persistence, insistence and consistency (chapter 10) all in a positive direction.

Among the skills and approaches that are expressed in this book, some are called Power Options. They are approaches for many of the verbal and written encounters that we have in our lives. Many of them connect to what you already know.

With the infusion of CONSISTENT POSITIVE DIRECTION, they are connected to human experiences, stories and observations. Hence, you will encounter a number of approaches that are titled with acronyms or phrases such as ‘Inside RAPPP’, ‘TOLL Free Openness’, ‘TALKEASE’, ‘LEAPS and REAPS’, ‘The Silent Mentor’, ‘EPIC Toughness’ and more.

There are over 165 Power Options. Those that are included in this book expand your readiness for forward movement, resolving differences, finding solutions, building relationships, and making change work more easily, all in a positive direction.

You will be able to use what you learn immediately, and become equipped for taking charge of your positive direction, now and for a lifetime.
