In this episode, she shares parts of her journey all the way from how spending time in chat rooms as a teenager refined her content skills to why one of her posts blew up to 2 million views. “There was no ulterior motive and I think people realised that - people don't go on LinkedIn to buy, they're there to market themselves and their own business.

4 Steps to launch a podcast that will skyrocket your business with Rosemarie Callender
Summary The biggest mistake new podcasters make is thinking the first step is buying a mic. Before you hit that "buy" button for a shiny new mic, you need to know the crucial steps that come before hitting record. Recording your podcast only comes after you figure out your podcasting purpose, content strategy, and systems. In this episode, podcast launch strategist Rosemarie Callender walks you through 4 steps to launching a podcast that will grow your business. Get ready to uncover how podcasting can transform your content creation process, improve your speaking skills, and unlock a whole new audience. What we discussed(00:00) Is starting a podcast hard?(01:20) How to start a podcast OR What matters more than your mic OR What matters more than podcast tech(03:17) 3 steps to get leads by podcasting(07:24) Why most podcasts fail(11:17) Automating your podcast(13:12) Is starting a podcast expensive?(17:28) Getting your show on Apple & Spotify(19:01) Equipment you need to record your podcast(21:10) Do you need a jingle?(24:11) Mistakes new podcasters make(27:51) Best way to market your podcast(32:37) How to align your podcast with your business (36:42) How many listeners will you get? (42:12) 4 steps to start a podcast 3 podcasting tips:Before figuring out podcast tech, you must figure out your podcast purpose.

How to cross giving a TED talk off your bucket list with Erica Farmer
If you’ve ever watched a TED talk and secretly wished that you could stand on the red dot one day, then this episode is for you. Delivering a TED talk can attract clients to your business and elevate your personal brand. The best part is that you don’t have to have any prior public speaking experience - all you need is an idea worth sharing. Erica Farmer, Director of Quantum Rise Talent Group, reveals her experience becoming a TEDx speaker for the first time and shares tips for how to get selected as a speaker, how to structure your talk, and how to make sure you remember what you need to say when you’re in front of an audience. “The confidence that you present with, how you articulate, your passion are just as important as the actual message that you are saying…probably more important actually. So you don't have to be a speaker, but you do have to put the hard yards in with the scripting and the practice.”What we discussed(00:00) What’s a TED talk? (01:35) Why do a TED talk? OR Should you do a TED talk?(05:29) TEDx vs. traditional public speaking: what’s the difference?

This way, if you panic on stage you still remember the key points you need to cover in your delivery. Have 5-6 key points prepared. Remember, only you know whether you’re following your script or not - the audience doesn’t, so go easy on yourself. Get out of your own head. Record your TED talk and listen to it on a loop, that’s how you remember song lyrics from time ago…and that’s how you’ll remember your talk. LinksTEDx Scunthorpe Apply to be selected as a TEDx speaker: https://www.ted.com/about/programs-initiatives/tedx-program Connect with Erica Farmer: LinkedIn | Quantum Rise Training | Quantum Rise Main WebsiteConnect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕

She also shares how making content is easier without a content plan. Tune in and start crafting your own online visibility plan.   (08:45) “I think that we get so caught up in what other people think of us, but actually, do you know what people are thinking about? They're worried about what other people think of them.”3 tips to make online visibility easier (tune in for more tips):1.

This allows you to be more flexible and spontaneous. 3. Strategically sharing your life: sharing your life isn’t about revealing your every move and meal, it’s about being selective with what you share and relating it back to what you’re selling. LinksConnect with Maddy Shine: Instagram | Website | The High Vis Podcast Tell Google you exist by taking these simple steps - https://maddyshine.co.uk/does-google-know-i-exist/ Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕
Are Facebook Ads worth it in 2023? With Aggie Meroni

Are Facebook Ads worth it in 2023? With Aggie Meroni
Whenever you consider running ads, you worry - what if you just lose money? How much should you spend? What should be in your ad? What if no one buys what you’re advertising? In this episode, with ads specialist Aggie Meroni, you’ll learn about how to run profitable ads without spending an arm and a leg. Aggie Meroni is a Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest Ads specialist. She is the founder of WhiteBee Digital and the host of the Freelance Ads Podcast. “You have to think about the context of people scrolling. The dog’s barking, the kids are fighting, the oven dings. People aren't a hundred percent focused on their phones. So, you need to capture that attention. You need to do something that will stop them in their tracks.” (18:01) 6 ways to start creating profitable Facebook and Instagram Ads (tune in for more tips):People buy from people: if it’s possible, show your face in your ads. Even if you run ads, you still need a strong personal brand:  “the market is not saturated yet, so that is good. However, if you don't have a strong personal brand or you don't have an audience to sell to, it's extremely hard to have a profitable course.” (04:20) If people don’t want your product/lead magnet/service without ads then they probably won’t want it when you run ads either. You have to validate what you’re putting out before investing money on it.LinksAggie Meroni WhiteBee Digital The Freelance Ads ClubThe Freelance Ads Club PodcastLeave a podcast review and WIN 1:1 ads coaching with Aggie Meronie:1) Subscribe and rate the Build a Brand with Rosie Parsons podcast on any podcast app 2) Share the episode/podcast on one of your social media channels3) Send a screenshot of your share to rosie@rosieparsonsphotography.comClosing date: 31 January 2023Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕

Not Liking How You Look Is Ruining Your Income with Self Love Coach Lisa Kelly

It’s about not distracting yourself from who you really are and truly owning every part of you.

Easily Create Instagram Reels (Crash Course) With Marielle And Claire From Instagram Growth Club
Turned off and overwhelmed by Instagram after all the updates? Don’t feel like you got what it takes to create reels? Well, reels don’t have to be fancy to grow your business. Learn how to easily make reels that increase your sales in this episode from social media coaches Marielle Baylis and Claire from Studio 5 Social.“I think is good to remember, as business owners, that people are naturally quite nosy and we like to see what's going on behind the scenes. We like to know what's going on in other people's lives. And we will dedicate time to watch that and it connects us too.” (20:25) 3 ways to start creating effective Instagram Reels (tune in for more tips):1. Yes, reels can give you more reach. No, that’s not always a good thing. “you'll reach all these great people and they might love it and they might start following you, but they also might not be your target customer or your target audience, and that can get a bit risky”. 2. Make connection content that shows your audience who you are as a business owner. It’s the personality side of your business. This can be bloopers, questions, and behind-the-scenes content.3. Repurpose your best image/carousel posts into reels. If something works well for you as a grid post, it will likely work well for you as a reel as well.  4. Make your reels consumable within 20 seconds, yes - even if you’re teaching something. Reels that perform best are ones where people can implement something quickly. LinksFREE Download - 30 days of content ideasJoin the next Instagram Growth ClubConnect with Marielle Baylis: Website | Instagram Connect with Claire from Studio 5 Social: Website | InstagramLeave a podcast review and win a spot in the Instagram Growth Club:1) Subscribe and rate the Build a Brand with Rosie Parsons podcast on any podcast app 2) Share the episode on any social media3) Send a screenshot of your share to rosie@rosieparsonsphotography.com Closing date: 31 January 2023Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕
10+ Ways To Stand Out Online You Can Start Doing Today with Anna Rumpold, Apricot Social

10+ Ways To Stand Out Online You Can Start Doing Today with Anna Rumpold, Apricot Social
You’re always told you have to “stand out online”, “make unique content”, and “add value”, but how can you do that practically…especially when there are 10s or even 100s of people doing what you do? In 22 minutes, Anna Rumpold from Apricot Social shares more than 10 things you can start doing today to begin standing out online tomorrow. Anna Rumpold is a marketing and messaging coach. (06:29) “In your niche, there might be 20, 30, 50 people talking about the exact same topics as you, but what is going to stand you out is your approach, your values, and how all of these things come together.” - Anna Rumpold How to make your content and offer stand out (tune in for the rest of the tips):You can never do too much research on your clients. Here are some topics to consider asking them: Where they are now vs. where they want to be What they feel is missing in their lives What’s important to them in their lives “When you are really clear on who it is that you want to attract, there's going to be a lot for them to be attracted to you as well.” (00:56) Use hooks to grab people’s initial attention toward your content. A hook is anything that makes people stop their scrolling and start looking at you. You can use provocative questions and unusual statements as hooks. Anything polarizing is a hook too. Get uber-specific about your message. Everyone is saying generic things, be the person with the sharp perspective. LinksOtter.ai Anna Rumpold on Instagram (Apricot Social)Leave a podcast review and win 1:1 marketing and messaging coaching with Anna Rumpold!1) Follow and rate the Build a Brand with Rosie Parsons podcast on any podcast app 2) Share the podcast on your social media profile3) Send a screenshot of your share to rosie@rosieparsonsphotography.com Closing date: 31 January 2023Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕
Raise Your Prices by Leveling Up Your Personal Brand with Designer Kayleigh Lloyd, Lloyd Creative

Raise Your Prices by Leveling Up Your Personal Brand with Designer Kayleigh Lloyd, Lloyd Creative
You might be too shy to connect with people online or too frightened to raise your prices because your personal brand isn’t doing you justice. A weak personal brand undercuts your income. Leveling up your personal brand makes you look professional, feel trustworthy, and become memorable. Brand designer Kayleigh Lloyd explains how you can start creating a personal brand that you can proudly flaunt!(12:29) “ If you are feeling a little anxious about showing up, then maybe you just need to dig a bit deeper into understanding who you are, how you want to show up, and how you want to be perceived by people. Once you really understand who you are, and how you want to do things, then things become a lot easier.” - Kayleigh Lloyd3 ways to start creating a powerful personal brand (tune in for more tips):1. Understanding who you are: identify what makes you special, your values, and what makes you who you are. 2. Take your time in finding out what your values are: If you come up with your values too quickly, you risk coming up with values that are too generic like “authentic” and “honest”. You want to find values that other people won’t typically use to describe themselves. 3. Let go of trying to show up online the way other people do: You don’t have to be like others in your field. When you relax and own who you are, you find clients who connect with you on a human level. Your ideal clients will have similar traits to you - be yourself to find out who is like you. LinksKayleigh Lloyd’s websiteKayleigh Lloyd on InstagramLeave a podcast review and win a brand audit by Kayleigh Lloyd!1) Subscribe and rate the Build a Brand with Rosie Parsons podcast on any podcast app 2) Share the podcast on your social media3) Send a screenshot of your share to rosie@rosieparsonsphotography.com Closing date: 31 January 2023Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕
LinkedIn Content Strategy For Empaths and Sensitive Women With Jen Corcoran
Dec 10 2022
LinkedIn Content Strategy For Empaths and Sensitive Women With Jen Corcoran
One Halloween, Jen decided she was going to call out all the BS on LinkedIn like sleazy DMs and robotic posts - just as a joke. She called it “LinkedIn Horror Stories”. The next day, 10 different people scheduled sales calls with her. How come?She replaced professionalism with personality, and it worked - in this episode, she explains why it worked and how you can follow in her footsteps of finding clients on LinkedIn. Jen Corcoran is an award-winning LinkedIn consultant for female coaches, consultants, and trainers. “ I think so many people, they don't show up as human. They're like “Ooh, I've heard LinkedIn's great for sales. I'm gonna go on it like Amazon and just ping it out.” And it doesn't work like that.” - Jen CorcoranFrom the show:3 things to start doing on LinkedIn today:1. Go rogue and bring your real self to LinkedIn. If you’re generic, no one can connect with you on a deeper level. Find out who you are and what comes naturally to you, then go all in on being yourself - that’s how you make LinkedIn content creation easier and funner. You’ll repel the wrong people, and attract the ones that want more of you being you. 2. Who are your people? Figure out who your core audience really is so that you can bring them the content they’re looking for. You want to discover what your audience wants in their own words. Use surveys or interviews to understand your people deeply. 3. Don’t fixate on what type of content you should create on LinkedIn. Instead, fixate on what type of content you can’t wait to create. The format doesn’t matter, the substance does. Memorable moments: (03:26) “I'm always myself and not afraid to bring myself to comments, but for some reason I was in my head about my actual content. I was in that professional mode. And don't get me wrong, it is good, like it does resonate with some people, but I just decided I had to bring all of myself to the table.” (21:08) When leaving people DMs and comments: “it should never be about you. It always should be about how you are interrupting their day in a positive way” (24:12) “You could have 200 connections - and if they are quality and the right people, you will generate leads as a business owner because it will be about referrals, getting introductions, and tapping into their network.”LinksConnect with Jen Read LinkedIn Horror StoriesWin a 1 of 3 FREE seats to the Maximize Your LinkedIn Profile WorkshopTo enter: 1) Subscribe and rate the Build a Brand with Rosie Parsons podcast on the podcast app of your choice 2) Send a screenshot of your review to rosie@rosieparsonsphotography.com with the subject line LinkedIn Competition. Closing date: 5 January 2023Maximize Your LinkedIn Profile Workshop:https://jenniferc6c3ad.clickfunnels.com/maximise-linkedin-profile-workshop Connect with Rosie on socials!LinkedInInstagramAnd if you're a woman in business who loves colour find out more about personal branding shoots on Rosie's photography website! 💕
