Positioning your company for success
close
Positioning is the attempt to create a position in your potential clients' minds about your product, service or company. This position takes into consideration what they already think about it and what your competition are doing. It shifts the focus from looking inside the product and company for the mes-sage and instead finding your selling point in the minds of your potential clients.

Positioning is a key factor for success, yet is often overlooked. In this talk, Georgina will introduce the concept of positioning, explain the key factors for improving positioning your business to help you identify if your position in the market is holding you back. The talk will also offer examples of positioning in action.

Selling through storytelling: How to sell without sounding salesy!

It’s a fact that a lot of women aren’t comfortable selling what they offer, make or do. And on top of that, women in creative, heart-led and passion-driven professions have an additional burden when it comes to selling themselves, their products or services.

From not wanting to appear too salesy, to cringing at promoting what they do, to doubting their offers, many women are holding themselves and their business back because of their negative emotions around marketing and selling.But selling doesn't need to be salesy, in-your-face or cringy. Using the techniques of selling through storytelling, women business owners can confidently promote and sell what they do through the power of personal connection, impactful words, and honest communication. Making marketing and selling feel natural, organic and totally aligned to each business owner.

About Natasha

As a successful wedding business owner and educator, Natasha Johnson understands all too well the power of communication and the need to sell without selling. Her wedding blog Engaged and Ready.com is an award-winning, top 30 UK wedding blog and attracts 10,000 visitors a month, and perfectly balances the concepts of selling, informing and entertaining its audience. Using her training and skills as a former BBC newsreader and journalist and a business educator, Natasha primarily helps women to up their sales and communication game and generate the income that they and their business deserves.
