In yesterday’s challenge task, we discussed the two most important places that you need to be “showing up” digitally in order for your 941 tax resolution services to be found.
Today, we’re going to talk about the one place you need to show up physically.
If you’re already a subscriber to The Profitable Accountant, you saw me write heavily about this in the November issue.
Where do you need to physically appear?
Ready for it?
On your feet, standing in front of your target market.
“Nooooooooooooooooo!” I hear you scream.
Yep, I’m talking about public speaking.
You already know that you need to be niched. I’d like to think that I’ve sledgehammered that point home enough around here.
And now I’m telling you that you really, really need to be the person standing in front of groups of people in that niche, lovingly talking to them about payroll taxes.
Today’s challenge is, therefore, pretty straightforward: Call ONE business or organization in your niche than you know does events, meetings, or seminars, and ask to be on the program.
It doesn’t matter if they can give you 5 minutes or 5 hours.
It doesn’t matter if you have a presentation prepared.
It doesn’t matter if you’re scared to death of public speaking.
That can all be sussed out later.
Today, just make the call. Go speak at a seminar, trade show, or other industry event. Go speak in front of the only four people that show up for the Western Valley Independent Gift Shop Association annual meeting. Whatever your niche B2B industry is, find a thing, any one thing, and call somebody to arrange to speak at it.
Don’t think. Don’t fret. Just call.
