Become So Good, They Can’t Resist You

Is it time to grow your business…

If you are looking to gain traction in your company, everything starts with you having a product or service that’s absolutely irresistible to customers.

How do you know if you have hit that streak of business gold?

Your customer is desperate to solve a painful problem and you have the *potential* be their dream come true. You share your product and they can’t buy it fast enough and thank you profusely! You need to offer something that makes a real difference for people – saving them time, money and curing a real pain.

Once you have that magical formula…it is time to share it!

You need to share your solution with those who might need it and convince other people like them that it works!

People who have the pain that you know you can solve are naturally skeptical. They want proof you’re telling the truth. They don’t want to be sold, but they do want to solve that thorny, painful problem.

To overcome skepticism you have to demonstrate impressive results and that happens to work best with massive transformation stories.

You need to share that confirmation of moving from A to B, from pain to power, from rags to riches, from before to after.

You need stories of customers trying your product or service and saying, “Wow! This is amazing!”

This sparks the curiosity to try the product or service and share the reaction with others.

What commercials can you remember that follow this formula? 

Laundry? Diets? Medicine? They all do!

Every single advertiser relies on confirmation in the form of emotional stories that provide proof and invite trial.

Emotion sells, facts back up the decision.

Get that emotional connection figured out and watch your business take off!

Coworking Just Makes Sense (Now Available in Santa Clarita!)

Here are the top ten reasons that coworking in Santa Clarita is right for you:

10. Being an entrepreneur is isolating enough. Find your tribe at Steamwork Center!
When you are an entrepreneur, you feel like a punching bag. Everyone you care about throws shade on your dreams, talks about the odds of failure before you even begin, and it gets in your head! Shake that off, and meet your new dream team of supportive fellow entrepreneurs who not only will support your dreams, they’ll help you achieve them.

9. Working from home isn’t working for you.
Who can work when there are dishes and laundry to do, the dog is barking at the FedEx guy, the mowers are roaring and there’s a million little side projects to distract you. And don’t get me started if you are trying to concentrate when the kids are around. We love kids too, but sometimes you have to get work done. A change of scenery could be just what you need.

8. Coffee shops aren’t cutting it.
When you find yourself hipchecking someone at Starbucks to get the last outlet, it is time for your intervention. This is it.

7. You are not ready for a full time office commitment.
Most office space is really expensive and requires a long term commitment! If you don’t want to sign away your life savings or first born child, try our flexible month-to-month packages.

6. You are looking for talented people to collaborate on your projects.
Business is a team sport, but you’ve been playing solo. Recruit some winners who have great experience in whatever you need, including social media marketing, PR, software development, design, bookkeeping, project management, etc. just by spending time at Steamwork Center.

5. You are looking to find clients who need your services.
On the flip side, if you are looking to pick up more gigs, sitting at home on the couch, marinating in your pajamas is probably not in your best move. Take a shower, put on adulting clothes and get over here!

4. You’d like to be able to ask a human for help rather than Google.
Google is awesome. We know because we Googled it.
Humans are also awesome, but you might not remember talking to them. It’s time!

3. Starting and growing a business is harder than it looks!
#truthbomb! It looks so glamorous and awesome when you first see CEO on your business card, but then you are also bookkeeping, marketing, sales, operations, customer service, compliance, HR departments and more – on a daily basis. Lean into our network for some downtime.

2. You’d like a more professional setting to have client or board meetings.
Why clear off the dinner table and clean the whole house to have a client meeting? We have a beautiful conference room with a large screen TV and whiteboard you can reserve on demand along with coffee, tea and water for your guests.

1. Coworkers report higher levels of happiness and business results!
According to research published in Harvard Business Review, 89% of coworkers surveyed report that they are happier since joining a coworking space and 64% said their coworking networking was an important source of work and business referrals.

So, what are you waiting for? Check out coworking options at Steamwork Center!
