How To Make Time For Marketing Every Day


How To Make Time for Marketing Every Day by Jill CelesteI hear it all the time: “Jill, I don’t have time for marketing.”

My usual response is, “What’s stopping you from marketing?” – but in my head, I am saying, “Hogwash!”

(Sorry, just keeping it real!)

Every entrepreneur has time for marketing. You may have to make the time, but the time exists.

Finding the time and prioritizing your marketing tasks can be challenging when you’re a solopreneur. I am a solopreneur too, and there are days when I feel like a chicken with her head cut off.

I’ve learned some tricks, though, and that’s what I want to share with you in this blog post.

Let’s take a look at why it’s important to market every day, how to pick the tasks to work on, how to get organized, and how to time block for maximum efficiency. Be sure to download the marketing planner PDF too (it will help you so much!). Are you ready?

How You Are Sabotaging Your Business

How You Are Sabotaging Your Business by Jill CelesteHave you ever heard of the expression: “You are your own worst enemy”?

Sometimes in business, it’s very true.

It’s like we have two voices whispering in our ears. The first one is soft and encouraging, telling us we can do anything we set our minds to. The second one is loud and brash, demanding that we play small and not take any risks.

In many cases, it’s the loud voice we listen to.

When we listen to that loud voice, what I like to call your Ego, we are sabotaging our business. There’s no nice way of saying it.

Please read and watch this week’s marketing strategy to learn three distinct ways you could be sabotaging your business – and what to do about it.

What is your profession?
Spiritual Director and Artist

Who are your ideal clients? Who do you heal or help?
I help clients in their 40’s to 70’s negotiate and grow their identity and presence of being both spiritual and creative in the midst of lives that are often too busy and lives that minimize the gifts that these clients bring.  I am Christian but I listen and learn from clients who are of other traditions and those seekers who identify as “none” with regard to faith tradition.

Why I Started A Second Instagram Account

Why I started a second Instagram account by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comI started a second Instagram account. I am still slightly shocked as I type that sentence.

Why is this shocking?

Because I have always been a proponent of putting all of my online marketing assets in my name – from my website to my Instagram account. Everything is branded “Jill Celeste.”

And then I go and open a second Instagram account under a different name.

Why would I do this?

I outline my rationale in this week’s marketing strategy, and I hope it inspires you to do the following:

  • Give yourself permission to break the rules, even the ones you created
  • Experiment with your marketing (without attachment)
  • Take a stand for your flagship product

That’s what I have learned from this decision so far. As you grow as an entrepreneur, these lessons come in many shapes and forms. And sometimes, they come disguised as second Instagram accounts.

How To Write A Marketing Plan


How To Write A Marketing Plan by Jill Celeste, www.JillCeleste.comYou need a marketing plan. It’s an essential part of your job as Director of Marketing for your business.

Your marketing plan is a roadmap that will help you reach your goals. Just as you wouldn’t plan a road trip to Provo, Utah, without consulting GPS, Google Maps, or even a road atlas, you shouldn’t do marketing without a plan.

Some entrepreneurs are intimidated, though, by the thought of writing a marketing plan. They envision a complicated, long document that takes days (maybe weeks) to write.

If this is you, rest assured. Marketing plans do not have to be tedious. They can be fun! Remember, a marketing plan is your document. You put what you want in there, as long as it helps you reach your goals.

If you’re like me, though, you need a starting point.

In this marketing strategy, I will share with you five sections you should include in your marketing plan.

Make sure to download my helpful (free!) “Prepping Your Marketing Plan” PDF to help you prepare your marketing plan. It will help tremendously!
