Finding the Best Way to Market Your Business

Today’s question is:

“I’m a relatively new copywriter. I’ve finally got myself a new shiny website and a portfolio to show off. But I’m not 100% what the next move is. I know I need to market my business, but I feel like I’m being torn in 100 different directions and feel like that’s stopping me from doing one well.

I feel I need to be doing social media, podcasts, guest blog articles, my own blog articles and showing up in so many other ways. To make things slightly more complicated, I’ve decided to niche my style of writing (websites, not industry). So my ideal client is all over the place, making it harder for me to narrow down where to hang out.

What should I be doing to market my business? Where should I be showing up? Help!”

Listen now:

You know that feeling of overwhelm when there’s so much to do? Should I be over here speaking on podcasts? Should I be writing blogs? All the social channels? Some of the social channels? What about niching? Too narrow, too broad?

All of the questions that you ask either when you’re starting out or when you’re making a change like launching a new website or changing a business model. Today’s question is all about how you deal with that overwhelm.

About Business Badassery

Amy’s a conversion copywriter, business coach and serial business owner who’s been reading advice columns since she was nine. With decades of business experience, she’s gotten very good at quickly reading situations and coming up with solutions – especially on the fly. You can find her at amyposner.com

Kirsty’s a launch copywriter and ex-psychotherapist, who’s smack bang in the middle of scaling her business with online courses. She’s good at making sense of human tendencies, selling things with words, and only following the work that feels good. You can find her at kirstyfanton.com

“Amy and Kirsty are wonderful, wise and witty!

I already push myself hard enough so I'm not interested in working with coaches that are going to "crack the whip" and "kick my arse".

Kirsty and Amy both have a gently challenging coaching style. I always left sessions feeling validated, smart and capable but with a clear idea of how to make things even betterer.”

“Kirsty seems to have this ability to see things that aren't being said. And then she brings them to light in such a nurturing way. 

Amy is direct AND caring all at the same time. It makes it easier for me to get to the point cause I know you'll get to the point when you ask about the things you need more info on.

Together — I love that neither of them hold back when their opinion/suggestion/perspective differs from the other's. It just makes it all so much more valuable. 

Also, they’re both so genuine, warm, smart and hilarious. Those 'good' traits just compound when you put the two of them together, ya know?

“All I'd ever heard about Amy was that she's a great coach. Welp, she's a great coach. Knows the right questions to ask to get through the bullshit and get to the root issue.

And my sweet, sweet Kirsty. Using all of her best therapy tricks to keep us moving forward. And making us feel loved :)

Together? Stop. So good. I have never felt so supported. 

I think the value in coaching is having someone hold a bigger vision for you than you can see yourself. So having TWO of you hold that for me was extremely motivating.”
