Is There Must-Have Software for Digital Businesses?

Is there such a thing as must-have software for a digital business? Sort of… but I have a few different ways of approaching that question. Many options fit into the low-tech or high-tech categories. Today, I’ll be sharing one of my favorite “mid-tech” solutions. Also, is the news media getting you down? It may be time to start weaning yourself off of the “bad-news” addiction. All of that, plus, a look into the Solopreneur’s way of planning for a better tomorrow in today’s podcast.

Is There Must-Have Software for Digital Businesses?

Fork in the Road Business Decisions

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe I believe optimism or pessimism plays a bigger role in our entrepreneurial pursuits and business decision-making processes than most of us realize. Just the other day I was talking a group of people and pointing out how we lean one way or the other at any given point in time. Our attitudes can deeply color our perception about what’s happening around us as we try to build and plan for our future. Sometimes “winning” seems within our reach. It seems doable and we have a sense of optimism as we move forward. Then, there are other times when “survival” seems to be a much more realistic target that “winning.” In today’s podcast, I want to talk about making the best possible decisions in the midst of a challenge or struggle.

Fork in the Road Business Decisions

Think and Plan Like a Solopreneur

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe Today I want to talk a little bit about thinking and planning like a Solopreneur The next 90-days will be critical to a lot of businesses out there. The visual that comes to mind is musical chairs. Each round of play involves the removal of another chair and another participant. That’s the challenge of running a higher-overhead, brick and mortar type of business. Some businesses downsize and move the smaller locations. If you already run an online business, you can basically do the same by cancelling services you really don’t need or aren’t using. It’s not like you can’t buy them again at some point in the future. All that aside, this may be the perfect time to consider adding a little creativity to what you’re doing and how you’re doing it. Even a smaller change can end up having a big impact in the not too distant future. That and more in this week’s episode.

Online Business Questions and Answers

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe In today’s podcast, I’ll be answering a handful of questions that I’ve received over the past few months. Are you having problems finding your “ideal client?” Are you finding it difficult juggling too many responsibilities in your business? A few years ago, simplifying your online marketing was a “good idea.” Good, but not 100% necessary. Today, that’s changed. If you’re ready to do more with less – you’ll get a lot from today’s episode.

Online Business Questions and Answers

Navigating Through a Business Crisis

Earlier this year, Lori and I faced our own business crisis. During the fourth quarter of 2019, we’d planned to open a new, startup eCommerce business. This required quite a bit of planning and preparation. Our thinking back in November of 2019 was that we would be launching the new business around March or April of 2020. Early this year, we put everything on hold to wait and see how the shutdown would affect our original plans. It wasn’t until July that we recognized we had two basic options. We could ride out the rest of 2020 and basically put the new business on hold. Or we could redesign and repurpose what we were building and take it in a new direction. We chose the latter because we’ve done enough “sitting around” in 2020. In today’s podcast, I want to talk about taking action and doing something new with your existing skills and tools. Sometimes, like the old saying goes, you have to turn the lemons into lemonade and sell it to a new market.

Navigating Through a Business Crisis

Time-Tested Strategies for Increasing Business Income

https://www.jimgaliano.com No matter what kind of business you’re in, you’re probably looking to make more money. That may be doubly so due to the recent economic shutdowns. If the thought of figuring out how to make more money has your stomach in knots, I have good news for you. Today we’ll be talking about math, not wizardry. If you want more business, there are only three things you need to look at. If you’re a solopreneur, don’t worry, we’re only talking about 3 – not 20. Even in a time of great distraction, focusing on three things is doable. Also, I finally picked a CRM to begin working with. That and a few other things in today’s podcast.

Time-Tested Strategies for Increasing Business Income

The 1,000 True-Fan Strategy

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe There is an interesting theory that’s been floating around the online business world since 2008. It’s the concept of building a full-time income with only 1,000 true fans of your product or work. If 1,000 true fans of yours are willing to invest $100 a year with you – you won’t need to “chase” the big numbers. Millions of followers are not needed. The idea of having a solid, loyal following (that’s not in the tens of thousands), yet can provide you with a comfortable level of financial support, wasn’t new when Kevin Kelly wrote about it back in 2008. There are very few people in the world with huge followings. That’s ok because you can still make a very good living, even if you don’t have tens of thousands of fans. If 1,000 true fans of your work are willing to invest $100 a year with you, it can change everything. More on this in today’s podcast.

The 1,000 True-Fan Strategy

This is a Great Time for a Personal Reset

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe Attention spans, content consumption, group involvement, and more – are all on the decline as we enter the summer of 2020. Even as things begin to slowly reopen, there’s a sense that a growing number of people don’t want to go back to the way things were before. I believe the summer of 2020 will be a time when a growing number of people (especially in the online business world) will be looking to hit the reset button. Do you need to find a better work/life balance? Are you doing the work that makes you happy? Maybe you need to simplifying things to enjoy a better quality of life? For some, it may mean dropping all their less profitable projects so they can finally focus on one thing. One thing is for certain, people are hungry for personal change. If you can identify with what I’m saying, I think you’ll like today’s podcast!

This is a Great Time for a Personal Reset

Is the Digital Lifestyle Starting to Burn You Out?

The phrase, “Attention Economy,” first appeared on the digital landscape about two decades ago. Today, it’s shaping not only the world around us, but our mental and physical well-being as we navigate our individual paths through it. Wikipedia gives Attention economy the following definition - Attention economics is an approach to the management of information that treats human attention as a scarce commodity, and applies economic theory to solve various information management problems. Put simply by Matthew Crawford, "Attention is a resource—a person has only so much of it." In today’s podcast, I want to talk about the growing unrest, and why making personal changes has gone from being a good idea to being a necessity.

Can a CRM Transform Your Business and Deliver Results?

https://www.jimgaliano.com/subscribe CRM (Customer Relationship Management) tools, services, and plugins are designed to help you manage the needs of prospects and customers. Actually, that’s just scratching the surface. You can also use a CRM system to organize your sales and marketing efforts, streamline customer communication, send out invoices, and more. Different CRM platforms are designed with different approaches in mind. For example, one may focus on tools that help with client communication. Another may focus on leads and sales. Others are geared towards project management and billing. There are even self-hosted CRM’s and others that work within WordPress. In today’s episode, we’re going to look at the potential advantages and disadvantages of choosing a CRM tool for your business.
