Reserve your spot at Bloom Frankston's October meeting, Wednesday, October 24, here:
https://bloomfrankston2018.eventbrite.com.au/

Do you understand your Brand well enough to tell your Brand’s story?
Brand Clarity is vital prior to creating content.
When you communicate with your ideal client you need to know the purpose and aim.
Kirsten focuses on 5 aspects that she believes make up your brand.
Once you are clear about your brand’s story you can communicate with your Ideal Client using relevant and engaging content.

As a Brand Photographer, business owners approached Kirsten knowing they needed images but unsure what images they needed, and what they were going to do with those images. Which always came down to them not really understanding how to tell their brand’s story.

Kirsten created Map Your Brand to guide business owners to understand their brand so they could tell their brand’s story with clarity.

Onto her 3rd career, Merrin runs 2 companies doing digital marketing, website design, and social media marketing. Before running her own business, she worked for a company that provided broadcast graphics and results systems for live sporting events. The role was very technical from setting up graphics hardware at sporting venues around the work, to liaising between developers and clients, and ensuring that all workflows were as automated as possible. This created an interest in technology and the desire to help small business to simplify their tech and stop trying to manage it all internally.
 
She has also managed several databases for clients, installed sales software and trained staff at three 5 star hotels. She likes to think outside the box, and teach people about what is possible, rather than focus on current outdated or non existent digital strategies.
Passionate about emerging technologies and the mobile space, Merrin is all about getting businesses to go Digital. And to stop thinking they can do everything themselves but instead focus on running a better business, and oursourcing the rest.

BLOOM MORNINGTON PENINSULA'S GUEST SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT

We are thrilled to share that Merrin Munroe of The Small Business Geeksis Bloom Mornington Peninsula's Guest Speaker for May!

Merrin will share her insights into 'The landscape of social media in 2018 and how video is going to make the biggest difference in your business this year.'

Reserve your spot at Bloom Mornington's May Meeting, Tuesday, May 15 here: https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/bloom-networking-mornington…

Onto her 3rd career, Merrin runs 2 companies doing digital marketing, website design, and social media marketing. Before running her own business, she worked for a company that provided broadcast graphics and results systems for live sporting events. The role was very technical from setting up graphics hardware at sporting venues around the work, to liaising between developers and clients, and ensuring that all workflows were as automated as possible. This created an interest in technology and the desire to help small business to simplify their tech and stop trying to manage it all internally.

She has also managed several databases for clients, installed sales software and trained staff at three 5 star hotels. She likes to think outside the box, and teach people about what is possible, rather than focus on current outdated or non existent digital strategies.
Passionate about emerging technologies and the mobile space, Merrin is all about getting businesses to go Digital. And to stop thinking they can do everything themselves but instead focus on running a better business, and oursourcing the rest.

BLOOM CITY OF CASEY GUEST SPEAKER ANNOUNCEMENT

We are super excited that Calantha Chan of 'My first 10K as a Beginner Coach' is joining us as Bloom City of Casey's Guest Speaker in March.

After researching and interviewing over 100 coaches and business people over the past 3 years, Calantha identified the top three challenges holding business owners back from generating sustainable income and attract consistently high quality paying clients into their business is:

1. A lack of a step-by-step plan to follow;
2. No clear product to sell; and
3. No clear target market to sell to

Calantha will take you through the 3 stages she teaches other coaches and small business owners.

18 months ago, she worked as a mentor and salesperson at one of Australia’s largest Coaching Schools, coaching and enrolling new students. There, she noticed that only 1 in 30 students were working with paying clients.

So 12 months ago, she embarked on a mission to interview over 100 coaches and business people to understand what was holding coaches back from being successful in their businesses.

Since then, she has created a family & program called, $10K Elite Squad designed to specifically help beginner coaches to Nail Their Niche, to Stand Out and Sell Authentically
