There are many reasons why joining a membership may not be right for you. For example;
- haven’t got time to either do it yourself or spare a team member in the business
- it’s a reoccurring cost that you don’t want to incur
- can’t afford the expense right now
- maybe you’re thinking it might not work for you and your business
Then again, you may have been thinking joining a Membership right now could really help you with your marketing. Which is perfect, let me explain the many benefits of joining a marketing membership…
Be kept accountable
If you work by yourself as a solopreneur it’s hard to make sure you do everything you need to but more importantly have someone else to bounce your ideas off!
If you work within a marketing department or small team, there are times you want to speak to an expert to find out if your heading in the right direction and are on track to achieve goals or K.P.I.’s.
Either way, having someone keep you accountable by giving you tasks, exercises and resources every month allows you to take control of the marketing of the business by steering you in the right direction and giving you things to think about that you may haven’t even thought about. Having a fresh pair of eyes look at your business could just be the thing to push you in the right direction.
Get MORE done, take action and implement your ideas
Finding the time to market can be hard especially if you’re by yourself. Having a team of other like-minded people around you spurs you on and keeps you going even when you don’t feel like you can or want to. To take action you need to know what you need to be doing. A membership can give you the structure you need to bring into your business.
Develop confidence in yourself and business
Confidence is one of the biggest challenges we face when putting ourselves, products and services out there. We feel like we could be ridiculed or publicly criticized for the decisions we make we tend to not do anything at all. Let the Koogar Academy help you develop more confidence in yourself by helping you gain clarity of who you are and what the business stands for!
Be with like-minded people
Being with other people who feel the same way as you and have the same kind of problems is a safe place to be. Within this space we can ask question, give opinions and decide how we would approach that particular activity and if it’s for you at all.
Share your struggles and frustrations in a safe environment
Let’s be honest, we all have them. It happens to us all at different stages within our life, marketing, personal knowledge and situation AND business. Asking for help isn’t a bad thing, it is something we all need to do to enable us to grow faster.
Learn something new every day
Embracing a student-like mindset allows you to learn every day, helps you adapt to your situation, decision making is easier and every day you become better at what you do. What was the last thing you learnt before reading this blog? Pop a comment below.
Become a part of something that gives you motivation and picks you up when you feel nothing is working
SOS a.k.a. Shiny Object Syndrome, overwhelm, scatter gun approach to marketing and the feeling of being lost impacts everyone. Gaining momentum is what is needed for you to be motivated in the first place. Within the Koogar Academy, we’re good at giving you a kick up the bum or pep talk when you need one.
Make some amazing connections
We have a Members Meet Up every quarter where you can meet other Koogar Academy Members and put a face to a name. Many of our current members have met and have done business too.
Grow your business
This is what we are here for right? So, let us do it together making sure your headed in the right direction.
Expand your thinking and knowledge of yourself and your business at the same time
Most of our Member have come in with a particular plan and idea of what they want to get out of the Academy, but we have been blessed to have some amazing members who have taken their goals and ideas to the next level! Like adding 5 figures to their bottom line, being able to by a 2nd car and a house in some cases!
Stay outside your comfort zone
Being in an uncertain place, not knowing what to do, where to start, who to ask for help is tough enough.
When you know all the answers to all of that and are now ready to take it to the next level, your comfort zone will be pushed but that’s where miracles are made.
You don’t have to be technologically savvy to join the Koogar Academy because we are here to help you AND show you how to do it.
Marketing isn’t about technology it’s about psychology and understanding the person you are trying to get in front of!
Marketing is something every business must make time for and if you don’t it gets put to the wayside and left alone until there is NO business coming in…
So why Membership?
There is a reoccurring cost to a membership (depending on which payment option you go for) but there is also reoccurring learning when it comes to marketing due to shiny object syndrome when new platforms and ways of doing things become apparent and because marketing is an ongoing element throughout every business, staying abreast of it is better than lagging behind!
And yes, let’s be honest which ever membership you join might not work BUT if you make time, complete the exercise, attend the masterclasses and take action…
I guarantee you will see results not only in your thinking, in the amount of action you start taking and how people start interacting with you but also in your feelings towards marketing yourself and your business… the confidence will start appearing and there will then be no stopping you!
None of us know everything…
The simple fact is that when running or working within a business we cannot know everything. It’s just not possible and because of this we need to expand our team and work with people who can help us achieve our goals.
If marketing isn’t your strong point OR you are looking to up your game, then the Koogar Academy is for you and the reason is because we can always learn something new or be reminded of something we are not doing.
New technology and marketing activities will come and go but the basics of it and foundational elements will always be the same… and until you understand who your perfect client is, how they think, what they are looking for and how they make a decision then excellent marketing will always elude you.
Is Koogar part of other Memberships?
The answer to this is YES and the reason is, is because we don’t know everything either.
Koogar is a member of 3 groups as we speak. One to help us up our own marketing game, one for all things business operations, growth and scale and one for technical know how!
If we are telling you to do something, it’s because we are doing it or have done it ourselves.
