A Short Course In Professional Service Marketing Miracles
February 8, 2013
For reasons that totally escape me, most human endeavors become more complicated than they really need to be.
This is true of attracting clients to our businesses, which is also known as marketing.
Attracting friends and being attractive to potential friends are both natural parts of life. Following conventional social norms, most of us connect with like-minded people whose company we enjoy. And whether we realize it or not, by leaving room for miracles to occur, many of us connect with truly amazing and wonderful people.
The same considerations apply to marketing, whether professional services of other ‘products’. However, sometimes we become so engaged in the task of marketing that our busy-ness leaves no room for miracles.
Here’s a very short course that will help position you to receive marketing miracles. It will only take about 10 minutes, but it must be completed without distraction or interruption. When you can arrange 15 minutes of undisturbed time…
Step 1: By way of preparation, read this short blog post about marketing clutter.
Step 2: Turn the marketing machine off completely and eliminate all sources of marketing messages.
Step 3: Take the following actions
- take 3 deep breaths, breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth
- open your non-dominant hand, hold the palm up
- with the first 2 fingers of your dominant hand tap gently on the fleshy part of your dominant hand midway between the wrist and the base of your small finger
- continuing the tapping, repeat this statement at least 3 times out loud :
“Even though I might be confused about what I am doing, I remain open to new wisdom and insights that will help me with my marketing”
- pause…and when you are ready, take 3 deep breaths, breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth
Step 4: When you are ready, turn the marketing machine back on, setting the level no higher than ¾ capacity.
Miracles need space and time to develop and appear. If we continue the practice of going full out on marketing, we seriously limit the ability of miracles to enter our lives.
Step 5: When you experience your marketing miracle, come back to this post and tell us about it.
This helps make it real.
For best results, repeat this course whenever you feel overwhelmed by your busy-ness in any aspect of your business and life.
Even if the miracle is a well-needed break, it’s well worth the time.
