Welcome to Day 9, where you will learn to market yourself and your new business in new ways! Ask your sponsor about ordering business cards, and make a plan to give them out when they arrive. Change the voice mail greeting on your phone. Change your email signature. And, remember to always label or stamp your marketing materials with your contact information.
Ready to get organized? Now that higher-priority activities have been getting your attention, it’s a good idea to set up your home office area. Find a space where you can organize a few supplies in a file box or cabinet. You’ll only need a few supplies such as labels or a stamp, manila folders, calculator, calendar, cash bag and pens. Be sure to create a simple system for tracking expenses for tax time so that you can keep good records and save receipts. Your sponsor can share ideas with you.
We recommend a separate checking account for depositing business checks. Also, obtain a separate credit or debit card for your business, or choose one of your current cards for business purposes. A great option is the Initial Outfitters personalized Visa debit card. You can find more information in the 2014 New Consultants…What You Need to Know folder in the back office.
You should be feeling more organized now. How are you doing with High Heel Camp and your Initial Action Guide? Continue working through these as you build a strong foundation for business success.
