Do’s and Don’ts
Please don’t pitch your stuff EXCEPT on the promo threads. In fact, failure to follow this one rule will likely cause you to give up your spot in our group.

DON’T

  • Drop posts/links and leave. I know you want the world to see your newest blog post or ezine, but no one likes someone who is constantly pushing their stuff, right? So get to know people, find out what they want and need, and then on appropriate days you can share your links. This page isn’t a pitchfest.
  •  Pitch your business or event except on threads where they are requested
  •  Sell your MLM program here or private message people in this group pitching your stuff – it’s just not cool and you will be removed from the group for doing so
  • Create like/follow ladders – they are so NOT spiritually tuned in, and besides, they do not work
  • worry about always being right
  • post FB live videos on this page

A clear guide on profitable psychic fairs

 

Palmists can use psychic fairs to build their platform

Over the weekend I went to a psychic fair in my new hometown of Tucson. On a personal level, I met some of the most amazing people and had a great time.

On a professional level I couldn’t help noticing that the event had low attendance and most of the vendors/readers were not busy at all.

As the founder of the Profitable Palmist, I’m always on the lookout for ways to improve profitability!  Here are some observations for the readers at shows like the one I attended this weekend.  These tips can help you if you’re at a super-crowded and busy show or a show that is under-attended.

  • Know why you’re there. Before you go, know your objective. Obviously making back the investment in the table is a great idea. More important is focusing on long term profitability. For instance, you may decide to charge a very low fee for a brief reading/consultation so that you can get to know as many attendees as possible. By doing so, you create a private focus group! When you know what questions people have about working with you and what challenges are in their lives, you have exactly the information you need to write tailored blog posts and newsletters! (Bonus – make sure you ask for contact information and permission to add people to your email list!) Focusing on the long-term has helped me find three perfect, year-long clients, all from a stint at a psychic fair! Go in with the end in mind and you’ll have more success than if you simply focus on a dollar amount.
  • Engage your audience. Remember, people RARELY buy the first time they see something –especially if they are still trying to figure out the whole “psychic” thing. They could be worried about breaking some rules related to their religious upbringing or they may just not be sure what an “Angelic Realm Transmission” is and rather than feel stupid by asking, they simply pass by. Make it easy for people to come up and learn what your modality can do for them. What results will they get? And for heaven’s sake, unless you have a medical reason for staying seated, get off your chair and stand up, say hello when people walk by, give them something to hold or read if they’re curious. (Basically, be the person you’d like to meet if you were in a venue where you were a little nervous and unsure of yourself. Make them feel welcome!)
  • Collect their contact information so you can continue the conversation. If your table is appealing and you welcome people they are likely to engage in conversation and ask questions. If they seem intrigued or interested in learning more, ask them if they’d like to receive occasional emails from you where you share more information like the conversation you just had. Let them know it’s free and they can unsubscribe at any time.  Another tip – ask for their phone number as well. Not everyone will give it to you but if you follow up with a phone call after the show to thank people for stopping by, you will make a great impression and I guarantee they will remember you when they are comfortable and ready to have a reading.
  • Tables need to be appealing. I know that each venue assigns you a plain tablecloth and a chair, but what can you do to make your table stand out from the person beside you? One easy and cost effective idea is to add height and dimension – bring old shoe boxes and place a colorful cloth over them and have your photo or sign on top of it so you’ve got some height to draw the eye. Bring fresh flowers or candy or a professional sign. Give people something to do or see when they come to your table, especially at shows/events that may not have much traffic. Make what you have on your table something that engenders comfort and calm – flowers are great for this! The more at ease people feel and the more they can see/touch/get a feel for you and your work, the more comfy they are in sitting down for a reading.)
  • Make it about THEM. You spent years and dollars learning your craft. You’ve studied with people who are really famous in your world and you want to assure the person looking at your booth that it’s worth it to spend money on a reading with you. It’s natural that you’ll want to share the process or the history with them. However, they don’t really give a crap. And they don’t have any idea who that person is you are talking about in reverential tones that was your teacher and your teacher’s teacher. So they nod and smile and walk away, because they were afraid to ask you who those people were because you made it sound like they should know who they are in order to have a reading. What they really wanted to know was whether or not you could help them get out of their funk, find a better job or make a healthy decision about an unhealthy situation. So before you answer the “What do you do?” question with a history of your modality and process, try something like this instead. “I use your hands to help you feel more powerful in your everyday life. Does that sound like something you’d like?”  And then let them TALK.

The Real Truth About Passion in Business

The Real Truth about Passion in Business.

Stop Waiting to Find the ONE Passion and Start Your Business NOW!

Are you waiting to find your ONE passion before you launch your business?

If you’re a spiritual type who wants to help heal the world in some way you may trick yourself into waiting until you find the “right” thing to focus on as your modality or way of helping. In fact you may think that all that’s standing between you and success is finding that one thing or passion!

My story is probably much like yours.

When I decided to help people using pragmatic palmistry (aka Hand Analysis) I was gung-ho and ready to make my first few thousand dollars in a week or so. After all I was an accomplished sales and marketing director in my corporate life and I’d started, grown and sold a very successful boutique pet-care company already. How hard could it be to build a palmistry business?

Boy was I naïve!

For some reason this business felt so scary to me. I was afraid I would never be as good at reading hands as the teacher who’d done my certification training, and figured she had the market cornered anyway. I thought if I took another class (or 20) I’d be better prepared and then I’d be ready to launch and would immediately see a profit.

Here’s what really happened – I took courses on blogging, newsletters, marketing for goddesses, marketing for hippies, how to have free conversations with prospects to get them to hire me, and went to conferences on overcoming my fears of success, my lack of self-confidence and more. In the seats next to me were men and women who did really cool things. They did things that were infinitely cooler than what I did. They talked to Angels and they helped spirits cross over. They were mediums, psychics, animal communicators, tarot readers, Reiki practitioners EFT trainers and so much more.

After the classes and seminars I’d go home and start researching whatever cool thing I’d just learned about, instead of applying any of the concrete tools I’d learned. It seemed that in order to make progress with my marketing I had to be 100% sure and passionate about my service as well as clear on precisely who would be my target audience.

On a good day I waver on what I want to eat at any meal, afraid of missing a better option just minutes later, it’s obvious that I would never be 100% sure that I’d want to read hands forever and ever amen. It seemed silly to go through mounds of templates and worksheets to identify my perfect client avatar because I might change what it was I did – to Animal Communication! Or Mediumship! Or whatever new idea popped into my head on any given day.

At the end of 5 years I was massively in debt (much of it to the coaches and workshops I had invested in to help me get my business up and running) and was certified as an Animal Communicator, an Angel Communicator, an Angel Oracle Reader, and had taken multiple mediumship and psychic development courses. I’d dabbled in Enneagram, Human Design, Numerology, Astrology, Yoga principles and practice, blogging, website design, freelance writing, wellness and nutrition and dog training, just to name a few!

This was doing nothing to help me clarify what my ONE THING was that I was called to do and I was annoyed and exhausted (and, um, broke!)

Luckily, it dawned on me that we are all here on Planet Earth to help ourselves and other people heal. That calling for us all shows up in infinite ways – from collecting trash to running a Country and everything in between. Therefore what I did was less important than why I did and how I felt while doing it.

What a light-bulb moment!

I could be on purpose doing ANYTHING at all! All I had to do was commit to doing something! (tweet this!)

Finally I did what I could have done years earlier – look at my own hands and find my blind spots and my core strengths. I selected the core design elements of my hard-wiring and looked at them from the highest and most challenging perspectives. Putting those notes together took me a month of hard-core self-study, meditation and writing until I finally had a plan to deliver my service in my own unique way.

What happened next?

I made a million dollars and lived happily and debt-free forever.

HAHAHA!

Not so fast sister!

What really happened is my focus shifted to specific action steps that worked with my hard-wiring instead of against them. I tossed any marketing template or lesson that was intrinsically opposed to my personal design and tweaked the other tools to work especially for me.

When marketing templates are not a fit for you it’s like being left-handed and trying to use a right-handed pair of scissors (tweet this!) – it doesn’t matter that those right-handed scissors are the Maserati of scissors! They just don’t work as well for you as a pair made for lefties would!

Eventually, day by day, action by action and subscriber by subscriber my business began to grow. It didn’t happen overnight, I haven’t made a million dollars (yet!) But my benchmarks are growing and expanding and my client base and profit are too. That’s the way real, sustainable and profitable businesses happen – one sale, one client at a time. (sorry, no magic button)

My personal system won’t work for you, but your one-size-fits-only-you plan will work for you, if you commit to working the plan.

Hopefully this helps you see that you can’t pick the wrong passion or focus for your healing/helping business. The only thing that’s “wrong” is using that idea to avoid getting started now. (I promise if you don’t start now, you’ll be in the same place, re-reading this post next year!)
