Testimonials

“have had the pleasure of working with Steve at The Prudent Marketer and have been enormously impressed with his knowledge and attention to detail. His considerable skills have allowed my business to take full advantage of the most up to date marketing techniques and in a short time he has completely and positively altered my perception of how to best communicate with my existing Clients and target market. I would have no hesitation in recommending Steve Mills to those wanting to significantly move their businesses forward”.

Neil Hagerty – BPMS Limited

I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop.  It was packed full of relevant, up-to-date content, covering a variety of marketing techniques that all delegates on the course could use and optimise within their organisations.  The workshop was well-structured with Steve continuously asking for our opinion, sparking countless discussions. I found it very engaging and interactive.  The environment was very relaxed,  and I felt comfortable asking questions (however silly they were)! Finally, Steve provided great resources to take away from the session.  I am looking forward to the next one!

Maisie Cole – K3 Consultancy and Training Services

I have been putting into practice what I learnt from your internet day and have found I have got the House on to Page 1 on Google under a certain number of search terms which as you can imagine made my day.
I must just say it was a brilliant day and I got a lot out of it and found it fascinating.  I am going to register for your newsletter and you never know one day Langar Hall Hotel may call for another Prudent Marketeer day for Charlotte and I to attend.

Thanks Steve!”

My top 5 LinkedIn Marketing Tips

My top 5 LinkedIn Marketing Tips

To create 40% of your leads from LinkedIn

LinkedIn is without a doubt a website that can win you business.  I would go as far as to say that you are leaving a pot of gold, sitting on the table each and every month, by not Marketing your business properly on LinkedIn.

Here are my top 5 tips:

  1. Pick up the phone and call the people you know on LinkedIn.  They are your contacts, friends and business associates and so you MUST start to build those relationships.  So, call them, meet them, invite them to the Footie, Rugby, Golf, or other events
  2. Communicate with them through email, within LinkedIn, or better still get them out of LinkedIn and into your e-mail database
  3. Post our ideas and information on LinkedIn that positions you as an expert in what you do and do this several times per day.  You want to be the Key Person of Influence
  4. Make sure your personal and company profiles look great and are up to date
  5. Take a look at the targeting of the PPC Advertising.  It is worth looking into.

LinkedIn Business Opportunities

How Your Profile Picture Can Lead to More LinkedIn Business Opportunities

There is a connection to having a professional profile picture to get better LinkedIn business opportunities. Many of us think that what we put on our profile pictures do not matter in the long run. However, the right profile picture is actually like putting your best face forward, especially if it’s for business.

Your profile picture on your website and your social media sites says a lot about you. Remember that this is the picture that your colleagues, your boss, your potential employer, employees or potential clients are looking at. Almost all people are visually-oriented and so, our eyes usually gravitate towards photos and videos when on a website. Therefore, it would be a waste if you ignore this advantage.

When you want to appear like a well-respected business and to have more LinkedIn business opportunities, your photos need to have a professional look. 

This means you should put a lot of effort in your profile picture. You need to look and act the part as well. Take the following into consideration when thinking about your profile picture.

  • Wear something professional. If you were to go to an interview, what would you wear?
  • If you could, it would be better to have your profile picture taken by a professional photographer.
  • Be mindful of the background that you use in your photo. Make sure it is appropriate to your industry as well.
  • Have good lighting and make sure that it is well lit.
  • Don’t forget to smile.

You don’t need to get a lot of photos for your profile picture. You can maintain a single photo across all your accounts so that your clients will be able to remember who you are and you appear organised and consistent. When you are consistent, people tend to associate it with reliability.

Don’t forget that your profile picture is the face of your business. While some people place their logos as their profile picture, this is not really the face that most people are looking for. Having a real profile picture is desirable as people associate this with credibility and professionalism.

Do not waste this opportunity to show people about your brand and to open up more LinkedIn business opportunities. 

Take the Prudent Marketer as an example and see how Steve Mills uses his profile picture across all his online sites.

Seven reasons that you should be using LinkedIn to grow your business

LinkedIn Training

1. Networking

Networking is without a doubt one of the most effective ways of growing a business and now we can do it online and at no cost and we can build our networking locally, regionally, nationally, or internationally.

2. Website traffic

We got over 1,000 people to our website every month.  How about you?

If you are like most people, then you are not yet using the power of LinkedIn to drive traffic to your website on a regular basis.

3. Targeting your niche

PPC Advertising on LinkedIn enables you to target your niche with your advertising.  So, if you want to advertise only to Accountants in Portsmouth, or HR Managers in London, then you can do so and because it is PPC, if it does not work, you do not pay!

4. Winning referrals

Referrals and testimonials are essential to business success and there is no place better than LinkedIn for providing you with an on-going stream of referrals.  All you have got to do is to ask the people on LinkedIn who know you, like you and trust you, to take one step further and recommend you.

5. Creating leads and sales

Put simply, people how use LinkedIn correctly win business on it and people who are on LinkedIn, but don’t really use it don’t win business on it.  Sorry to be simplistic, but that is the way LinkedIn works.

6. Growing your database

How much is your business worth?  Would it be worth more if you had a larger database of people who you are in regular contact with and whom you know?  The answer is YES.  One of the criteria used to evaluate the value of a business is the size and responsiveness of its database.

7. Improving brand awareness

I often say that brand awareness is best left to corporates and that it is a code word/excuse for not creating leads.  Having said that I have over 3,000 contacts on LinkedIn who all know me and one of my PPC Adverts was viewed by 389,000 people for only £18.  Something to think about.
