If you’re anything like me, you’re probably tired of hearing the “get rich quick” marketing strategies. Anytime someone tries to sell me on their specific “formula” or “strategy” around how they made six figured in 30 days, I immediately start running in the other direction. It’s just not a practical or realistic way to grow and scale your business!

There is, however, an easier way — AND — I can promise it will feel more organic, authentic, and fun.

In today’s episode, Erica and I are talking through how to leverage your network to help you organically boost your sales and drive more impact.

For over two decades, Erica has helped business owners + personal brands expand their reach and online presence. She is also the founder of Castner Consulting, which specializes in helping service based businesses find, connect, and convert prospects into clients.

In today’s episode we’re diving into some tips like:

  • How to find networking opportunities and local communities (likely ones you didn’t even know existed!)
  • The benefits of taking your marketing “offline” and growing 1:1 connections
  • How to think about & create unique collaboration opportunities to get in front of new audiences
  • Tips on how to get the most out of networking events (calling all of my fellow introverts!)
  • & more!

We’re having an honest conversation about how we, as business owners, can — bring things back to basics and really connect and serve to grow our business.
