    Just as fiction writers are advised to “show, don’t tell" — to let the story emerge through actions and thoughts rather than by the author’s description — so infopreneurs need to demonstrate what we bring to our clients, rather than simply talking about our expertise. Mary Ellen Bates (Bates Information Services) will facilitate a conversation about how to show our value, based on her Coach's Corner blog post on the same topic.

    Meeting is from noon-1pm Eastern time.

    Mary Ellen Bates

    Infopreneur and Strategic Business Coach, Bates Information Services

    Are you frustrated because you aren't getting the results you want from your marketing? When you tell someone about your business, do you get a blank look? Are you not sure what your clients would actually pay you for? You need to have some reality-check conversations!

    In this lively, interactive 2-hour workshop, you will learn why and how to use brief interviews to successfully pivot to a new field, add a new service, or better understand how to communicate your value. Mary Ellen uses this technique whenever she needs a fresh look at what her market needs, values and will pay her well for, and she will share her secrets on how to use this powerful tool to truly understand your clients and become irreplaceable.

    This workshop is part of #AIIP21: the Virtual Conference for Independent Info Pros, taking place April 14-16, 2021. Learn about the full conference and register for it separately at https://virtual21.aiip.org/

    Every business needs visibility to attract clients, which means marketing. Smart, strategic, education-based content marketing is a perfect approach for smart solo info pros.

    Consistency is the only true ‘secret sauce' for successful marketing. But we’re just one person, not a marketing team?! How do we do it? With a solid strategy, systems, the right tools, and some creative shortcuts. This workshop covers the basics of content strategy, creating a realistic, repeatable 30-day plan - a top tool for keeping your ideas and marketing organized.

    Learners will receive plenty of templates, shortcuts, and tips for making content creation easier and more consistent during this 2-hour workshop. You will outline three pieces of content and come away with a 30-day plan that fits your business.
