3 CARDINAL RULES TO FOLLOW IN YOUR STAMPING BUSINESS
by John Sanpietro, CMC(IAC)
Stamping Is My Business!

If Stamping is your business, then there are some business rules that have to apply in order for that business to be a successful one.  No business, in any industry, is above these rules, and not following them can cause grave damage to your business.

1. Never Buy More Than You Can Sell
For Stamping Business Owners, this is probably the most difficult rule to follow.  However, at its most basic level, running a profitable business is as simple as making more money than you're spending.  If you're buying more product than you can sell, your chances of profitability are almost zero.

The basic formula I recommend to all of my clients is this:  Don't buy anything you don't have a plan to make a profit on in the next 30 days.

In other words, don't buy something unless you have a plan in place to sell at least five of them, at full price, to your customers, in the next month.

If you follow this rule, you'll never buy more than you actually need, and you'll never have to dip into your personal money to fund your business.


2. Do At Least One Thing To Market Your Business Every Day
Almost every Stamping Business Owners fails to market their business enough.  If you're not marketing your business, people don't know about you.  And if they don't know about you, they can't become your customers.  And without new customers, your business will eventually stagnate and, then, fade away.

Make a committment to do at least one marketing task every day.  Reach out to a new audience online.  Make a few phone calls to people who haven't purchased from you in the last six months.  Write a blog post, and then create some backlinks to it.  Record and post a video.

There's no shortage of marketing ideas and tasks.  Once you make the committment, you'll have more than enough to do every day.


3. Write It Down
When you have a thriving business, you have a lot of balls in the air.  If you're not writing it down, it's inevitable something will slip through the cracks.  You're going to forget to follow up on something.  You're not going to have an accurate grasp on your financial situation.  The list goes on and on.

The more you rely on your memory, the more chaos you create in your business.  Not only that, but you're also placing an undue burden on yourself, which leads to stress and other negative things.

Writing it down is easy, and you'll be a happier, more sane, more productive Stamping Business Owners because of it.


Start following these three rules today, and you'll start seeing positive changes in your business almost immediately!

To your continued success!
Warmest regards,

John

RE: Marketing Tasks

Coleen Astalos

I'd love to create a list of those "Marketing Tasks" that John mentions in his post below.  Little things that you can do each day to Market your business.  John listed these:

- Reach out to a new audience online.  

- Make a few phone calls to people who haven't purchased from you in the last six months.  

- Write a blog post, and then create some backlinks to it.  

- Record and post a video.

 

He says there is no shortage of marketing ideas and tasks - but this is where I seem to fall short, I can't think of them!  I'm sure I'm not alone, so maybe if we all brainstorm on marketing ideas/tasks we'll come up with a good list that we ALL can pull from each day for marketing our businesses.

 

What ideas do you have?

Re: Marketing Tasks

Deborah Smart

Joyce, could you provide some details on adding a ‘love to paper craft group’ on a FB business page?  How do you do that?  and how does it differ from how you use your business FB account? 
Thanks for any further info you can share!

3 CARDINAL RULES TO FOLLOW IN YOUR STAMPING BUSINESS
by John Sanpietro, CMC(IAC)
Stamping Is My Business!

 

If Stamping is your business, then there are some business rules that have to apply in order for that business to be a successful one.  No business, in any industry, is above these rules, and not following them can cause grave damage to your business.

 

1. Never Buy More Than You Can Sell
For Stamping Business Owners, this is probably the most difficult rule to follow.  However, at its most basic level, running a profitable business is as simple as making more money than you're spending.  If you're buying more product than you can sell, your chances of profitability are almost zero.

 

The basic formula I recommend to all of my clients is this:  Don't buy anything you don't have a plan to make a profit on in the next 30 days.

 

In other words, don't buy something unless you have a plan in place to sell at least five of them, at full price, to your customers, in the next month.

 

If you follow this rule, you'll never buy more than you actually need, and you'll never have to dip into your personal money to fund your business.

 


2. Do At Least One Thing To Market Your Business Every Day
Almost every Stamping Business Owners fails to market their business enough.  If you're not marketing your business, people don't know about you.  And if they don't know about you, they can't become your customers.  And without new customers, your business will eventually stagnate and, then, fade away.

 

Make a committment to do at least one marketing task every day.  Reach out to a new audience online.  Make a few phone calls to people who haven't purchased from you in the last six months.  Write a blog post, and then create some backlinks to it.  Record and post a video.

 

There's no shortage of marketing ideas and tasks.  Once you make the committment, you'll have more than enough to do every day.

 


3. Write It Down
When you have a thriving business, you have a lot of balls in the air.  If you're not writing it down, it's inevitable something will slip through the cracks.  You're going to forget to follow up on something.  You're not going to have an accurate grasp on your financial situation.  The list goes on and on.

 

The more you rely on your memory, the more chaos you create in your business.  Not only that, but you're also placing an undue burden on yourself, which leads to stress and other negative things.

 

Writing it down is easy, and you'll be a happier, more sane, more productive Stamping Business Owners because of it.

 


Start following these three rules today, and you'll start seeing positive changes in your business almost immediately!

 

To your continued success!

Warmest regards,

 

John

Re: SU!: Marketing Tasks

You can add groups to your FB home page.  If you look to the left that shows all the groups that you are in you will see "Create a Group"  Just click on that and it will walk you through step by step.  When you create your group, it will ask about membership.  Click on Open.  Then send out invitations to people on your list.  If I remember correctly, it has a pull down so you can invite people that are your friends or friends of friends.
In your first post, ask those people to invite anyone that they know that likes to craft.
 
A group like this will open up doors to people that enjoy crafting and then you can interest them in stamping.

Joyce, could you provide some details on adding a ‘love to paper craft group’ on a FB business page?  How do you do that?  and how does it differ from how you use your business FB account? 
Thanks for any further info you can share!

Add a Love to paper craft group to your FB business account.  Make this an open membership and encourage people to share.  You provide a few stamping tips every few days and show things you are doing in class.

I'd love to create a list of those "Marketing Tasks" that John mentions in his post below.  Little things that you can do each day to Market your business.  John listed these:

- Reach out to a new audience online.  mphaven't purchased from you in the last six months. 

- Write a blog post, and then create some backlinks to it. 

- Record and post a video.

 

He says there is no shortage of marketing ideas and tasks - but this is where I seem to fall short, I can't think of them!  I'm sure I'm not alone, so maybe if we all brainstorm on marketing ideas/tasks we'll come up with a good list that we ALL can pull from each day for marketing our businesses.

 

What ideas do you have?

I'm assuming you mean a non-SUO (one that is not restricted to a specific brand of products) swap or challenge. Non-SU would mean we couldn't use our SU! products.

3 CARDINAL RULES TO FOLLOW IN YOUR STAMPING BUSINESS
by John Sanpietro, CMC(IAC)
Stamping Is My Business!

If Stamping is your business, then there are some business rules that have to apply in order for that business to be a successful one.  No business, in any industry, is above these rules, and not following them can cause grave damage to your business.

1. Never Buy More Than You Can Sell
For Stamping Business Owners, this is probably the most difficult rule to follow.  However, at its most basic level, running a profitable business is as simple as making more money than you're spending.  If you're buying more product than you can sell, your chances of profitability are almost zero.

The basic formula I recommend to all of my clients is this:  Don't buy anything you don't have a plan to make a profit on in the next 30 days.

In other words, don't buy something unless you have a plan in place to sell at least five of them, at full price, to your customers, in the next month.

If you follow this rule, you'll never buy more than you actually need, and you'll never have to dip into your personal money to fund your business.


2. Do At Least One Thing To Market Your Business Every Day
Almost every Stamping Business Owners fails to market their business enough.  If you're not marketing your business, people don't know about you.  And if they don't know about you, they can't become your customers.  And without new customers, your business will eventually stagnate and, then, fade away.

Make a committment to do at least one marketing task every day.  Reach out to a new audience online.  Make a few phone calls to people who haven't purchased from you in the last six months.  Write a blog post, and then create some backlinks to it.  Record and post a video.

There's no shortage of marketing ideas and tasks.  Once you make the committment, you'll have more than enough to do every day.


3. Write It Down
When you have a thriving business, you have a lot of balls in the air.  If you're not writing it down, it's inevitable something will slip through the cracks.  You're going to forget to follow up on something.  You're not going to have an accurate grasp on your financial situation.  The list goes on and on.

The more you rely on your memory, the more chaos you create in your business.  Not only that, but you're also placing an undue burden on yourself, which leads to stress and other negative things.

Writing it down is easy, and you'll be a happier, more sane, more productive Stamping Business Owners because of it.


Start following these three rules today, and you'll start seeing positive changes in your business almost immediately!

To your continued success!

Warmest regards,

John
