Hey, everybody. Small Business Stacey. I know you want more customers, clients, and patients. I know you want more money. Here’s the thing. How big is your ask? My guess is that your ask is pretty big. No, not this. Your ask. Your A-S-K. Maybe you’re doing webinars. Maybe you’re doing launches. Maybe you’re sending out sales letters. Here’s the thing. Most of you guys are doing a big ask at the end. You’re asking for marriage on the first date, and no! Nobody wants to get married and buy your stuff on the first date. Even if you deliver value in a webinar, even if you have them come to your launch, even if you send out a sales letter. But what if you could get some super quick wins by offering a 10-minute discovery call, a 10-minute discovery call to see if I can help you with blank.

Become the person who would attract the results you seek.

If you’re a naturopath and you’re out there doing webinars and launches, trying to pitch your $8,000 program and wondering why nobody’s signing up, well, what if instead you were to offer a 10-minute discovery call, a 10-minute discovery call to see if I can help you with your hormones or whatever issues that you’re facing. Me, I help small business owners with their marketing. Are you struggling with your marketing? Then I want to invite you to a 10-minute discovery call to see if I can help you with your marketing.

How can anybody turn that down? If they’re struggling, if they need some help, it’s a quick win for you. It’s a quick win for them. If after those 10 minutes, it makes sense, great. Well, then you then invite them to a longer conversation where you then, if it makes sense, you ask them for marriage, and you build a great relationship.

So think about what your ask is, and winnow it down to how you can get some super quick wins. Love to hear your comments and how you’re going to put this into action.

If you want to set up a 10-minute discovery call with me, just go to I’m here to help you get your marketing into action and help you become a #SmallBizMarketingWiz. Bye bye.
