How To Use SMART Goals To Help You Stay Focused On Your Business Growth

Back in my studio startup days, I wanted to be the best photographer and business owner that I can be. It was never about the money. It was about the amount of value I can bring to other people. It was about how, with a tap of a button, I could change the way a woman or man felt about themselves. My goal was to bring confidence and joy to all my clients. Business was strong. I was taking photos of beautiful families, newly weds, and business professionals.

Til one day, it stopped and business slowed down. My efforts of becoming one of the biggest and most valuable studios in Loudoun County felt like a waste. I was just another general photographer that "Did It All". I didn't stand out, I wasn't bold, and I wasn't known to be an expert.

I needed to change something.

After long conversations, continuous education, research, and the drive to re-establish myself, I ultimately decided to find a niche and re-establish myself as a professional headshot photographer. That was my focus.

9 years later, I own an award winning headshot photography studio in Leesburg, VA that creates amazing relationships with business professionals in both small businesses and fortune 500 companies around the USA.

When I think back on how I was able to make this transition, I remember my continuous use of SMART goals to keep new focused on my vision and focused on my business growth. It wasn't easy. It took dedication, hard work, and sacrifice, but transitioning was the smartest thing I could have ever done for my personal and business growth.

In THIS video, you'll discover how you can use S.M.A.R.T goals to help you stay focused on your vision and your personal & business growth.

In the comments, tell me, what's YOUR biggest takeaway from this video?

It might seem like everyone around you is after the same client and that you have to constantly be on guard. That is not the case.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There is plenty of room for everyone. AND once you paint the portrait of your ideal client, the field becomes very open. You aren’t after ALL of the business, just your ideal client.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Reaching for the stars is great, but try building your tribe locally first. You can really get to know your audience on a very personal, intimate level. That makes your connections more than just professional acquaintances. It makes it so you have friends out there encouraging you and pushing you, but also supporting you and referring you. Who is your cheerleader who started as a client? Shout them out and tell us your story!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

A picture is worth a thousand words. Just looking at Jay’s picture, you can tell he has a story. It turns out he was a chef for most of his working life and when he had his son, his whole life changed. He sought to have a career in which he could spend more time with family, but still provide for them… and he found it.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Intrigued? Exactly.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I hear this all the time: I don’t need to be on social media, I don’t need video because I am in the________ industry. What’s funny is that there is not a specific industry that doesn’t need video. Check out the blog tomorrow, link in the bio, about how to get started with video--- no matter your industry.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

How to effectively follow up after a networking event without looking desperate. Sounds easy enough right?! Wait 2 weeks, send a mass email to all the contacts you made, add everyone on linkedIn, and then send them a link to your product sales page. Right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
WRONG! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So, how do you do it? Here's are some good tips.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. Send an invitation to connect on LinkedIn in a timely manor by including a personal note on where you met him or her and something you may have discussed. For example, “It was great meeting you at the ABC Event. I’d like to keep in touch about the possible partnership we were chatting about.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Follow up via email to business cards you collected, and remember to personalize the messages. Let people know ahead of time you’ll be sending an email and have their permission; otherwise your email may be viewed in a negative light.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3. Try to follow up in a timely fashion, usually within a few days to a week of the event. It will help keep you top of mind of your potential clients or business partners.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4. Go the extra mile about how your businesses or connection can be mutually beneficial when you do reach out to someone. Take the time to research and understand what his or her company does, if you don’t know already. Consider extending an offer for a free demo or information session.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
5. Keep your first email brief. Having to wade through long paragraphs of text could turn off a potential business partner. The purpose of the initial message should be to re-establish a connection. You can go into greater detail once you set up a meeting or call.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
6. Include your LinkedIn profile link (personal or business) within your email signature to make it easy for people to connect with you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So next time you find yourself with a pocket full of business cards from a networking event, you know what to do! :-)

Whether you're making a presentation in front of potential clients, making consistent social media videos, or even building your network at your local networking event, the hardest part of doing any of those things is "Showing Up". ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes all it takes is that one step, or that one "yes", and you are one step closer to being where you want to be. We only limit ourselves, remember that. SHOW UP!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Supporting Our Small Business Community

Once upon a time, we were just another small business in Loudoun County. After a couple of years of growth, in 2012 we decided that we needed to expand our services and move our team to an official studio space. The search was on. Lucky enough, we somehow managed to find a perfect studio space and we settled in the beautiful downtown Leesburg.

Loudoun County and the small business community all around Leesburg accepted us with open arms and supported our small business from the day we opened our doors. The support and love was strong back in 2012, and amazingly enough, its just as strong today. We love our small business community in Loudoun County quite literally is the reason that our purpose is to support and continue to advance our community. We want to stregthen our relationships with other businesses & professionals and create an enviroment that is filled with love & support for eachother.

How do you feel about our small business community?

Networking doesn’t work if you do it with the intention to sell. Do you ever walk into a networking event, put on your nametag and instantly feel like you’re a minnow in open water? All the sharks close in on you, they want to know your “pain-points” so they can “fix” them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Or, are you the shark? Do you close in on people at the networking event, evaluating them solely on their position or their industry and discarding them as quickly as you do their business card? Check out the blog on how you can get more out of your networking adventures.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
