Yours Truly is a cover girl (no, not just in my dreams!)
I’ve been featured in the Inspiring Women section of the special ‘Business Planning’ edition of the Business Mums Magazine. Plus, I managed to get myself on the cover too! How cool is that?
If you’re interested, you can read the feature article, Donna-Marie’s Plan, here.
Elena has mentioned on her EP Designs blog that back issues of the Business Mums Magazine are currently on sale at 50% off. She goes on to suggest that this would be an ideal time to buy a copy or two as a way of trialling the magazine.
That got me thinking… I have every copy of the Business Magazine (and refer back to them often) so I don’t really need any more, but at such a bargain price, I’m tempted to buy some anyway. Yeah, I know… I can’t resist a bargain.
So then I started thinking of more ideas… I could buy a few magazines and give them out to customers as bonus gifts or value add-ons. It’s not costing me much and most customers appreciate the thought of a gift of some sort. If you have customers who are business owners, perhaps you could do the same.
Another idea would be to buy some to take to my next business expo with me. It’s always good to have something to give away to prospective customers.
Simplifying Small Business…
Have you ever bought or sold anything on eBay?
I was fortunate enough to spend last Friday – Sunday at an eBay Magic Seminar on the Gold Coast, run by the eBay Magicians, Matt and Amanda Clarkson.
I can honestly say that this was a highly worthwhile weekend, with loads of valuable information being shared. Matt and Amanda are such lovely, genuine people with a high level of integrity… and a great sense of humour. In addition to all the useful information and brilliant ideas, I spent three days with a room full of positive, motivated people, some of whom I’m sure I’ll be keeping in touch with.
Matt and Amanda speak all around the world so if ever you get a chance to hear them, it will be worth the effort to go.
You can read more about Matt and Amanda in the latest edition of the Business Mums Magazine (they’re the gorgeous couple on the cover) or visit their Bidding Buzz web site where you can download a free audio with more information on how to earn a living from selling on eBay.
