A Sunday well spent brings a week of content 🌿 @sashaexeter x @alwaysxalways ✨🧘🏾‍♀️ #clientlove

Have you ever said yes to all the things and then suddenly realized everything is happening on the same day and you feel like that "this is fine" meme? ⠀

Oh, yes, we've all been there. And for some reason, it's also when your showers are out of sync and you haven't washed your hair in days and of course that thing you said yes to was speaking in front of a large crowd of people. ⠀

Well, this is my PSA that you can do this. Case in point: On Thursday I spoke at @bmocanada in the morning, @commsweekca in the afternoon, rushed to the hospital to meet a fresh born baby around lunch, jumped on a plane, and was having dinner in Calgary by 8pm. Albeit it was already 10pm Toronto time, but hey. ⠀

My advice isn't to always say yes to allllll the things, but to remind yourself that when you're IN the thick of an "oops I said yes AGAIN" situation, there IS a light at the end, and sleep is pretty much the cure to all problems. That, and a cup of tea.⠀

ALSO, I said "no" to something on Thursday and I swear the clouds parted and the sun shone a little brighter and my future-self looked down on me and said, "FINALLY!" ⠀

“When life gives you lemons, grab the sugar/ water and MAKE LEMONADE!” We have all heard this statement at least once in our lives! Most recently, Beyoncé named one of her albums “Lemonade.” A speech delivered by her Grandmother, spoken on the album said the following: “Take one pint of water, add a half pound of sugar, the juice of eight lemons, the zest of half lemon. Pour the water into one, then to another several times. Strain through a clean napkin. Grandmother. The alchemist. You spun gold out of this hard life. Conjured beauty from the things left behind. Found healing where it did not live. Discovered the antidote in your own kitchen. Broke the curse with your own two hands. You past these instructions down to your daughter, who then passed them down to her daughter.” This is EXACTLY why I chose to become a Paparazzi Independent Consultant. I experienced some life changing events. I knew I had two choices: give up or get up! Jeremiah 29:11 says; “For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you HOPE and a FUTURE” I chose faith over fear! I am walking in the divine purpose God designed just for me! My mission is simple, use my testimony to to uplift, empower and encourage women one piece of jewelry at a time! Click the link in my bio to join me on this mission! #paparazziconsultant #jewelrydiva #empoweringwomen #letsmakelemonade #buildinggenerationalwealth

We forget sometimes, it's so easy to dismiss the small achievements and focus on the 'big' goals. But its justtt as important to celebrate those small wins. ⠀

So, do the work today, but then shut your laptop, grab your girl gang and go toast those achievements. ⠀

PS: Shout out to @life.with.pow for giving us reasons to stop what we were doing when she popped in with a bottle of bubbly. ⠀

It's been a while since I've done a lil' intro post (ok, fine, I've never done one before) but I've had a few new followers join, so wanted to take a moment to say Hello 👋🏻
.
In case you missed the memo, I'm Katy, the copywriter. I write top-notch sales copy and content that people actually want to read. It's my job to help entrepreneurs like you turn your prospects into paying customers through the magic of words. I get your customers excited to buy from you again and again (and again) PLUS... I can show you how to get better results in the long-run by teaching you to make your own writing more effective, too.
.
Working with women and non-binary folks is my jam, but so long as your biz mindset isn't stuck in the eighties, we should get along just fine. You won't find any icky gendered terms in my portfolio (girlboss, SheEO and mompreneur are on my list of banned words) but if you're looking for inclusive, gender-neutral copy that's still empowering AF, then I'm your person.
.
Vegan cooking, live comedy and camping equipment are my main enthusiasms outside of writing, and I will never ever turn down pizza🍕 I'm also sober, so if we meet IRL, let's make it a coffee or a kombucha pls☕ Right now I'm based in Toronto🇨🇦 but low-key trying to convince my partner we should move to Barcelona🇪🇸
.
Got Qs about copywriting, sobriety, or the best places for vegan pizza?
Hit me with 'em in the comments 👇🏾👇🏻👇🏽

I feel like a broken record at the moment, but I'm going to say it one more time for the folks in the back.
👏🏼 Confused. 👏🏿 Customers. 👏🏻 Always. 👏🏾 Say. 👏🏽 NO. 👏🏻
Confused customers always say no, friends. They say no.
If they want to get in touch with you, but don't know how - you'll lose 'em.
If they're ready to buy from you, but don't know where to click - you'll lose 'em.
If they've got a question, but don't know how to contact you - guess, what? You'll lose 'em.
.
Put yourself in your buyer's shoes: There is nothing more frustrating than trying to give someone your money, and not being able to to do it. Let's not make parting with $$$ any more painful than it needs to be.
.
Instead, make your sales process so crystal f*cking clear that your customers breeze through, and afterwards go "Ahh, wasn't that nice..." and think they're on holiday 🏖
How?
With clear and concise instructions:
✅Tell your customer what to do at every stage. eg. "Click here to pick your appointment time" or "Enter your card details here"
✅Start your instruction phrases with imperative verbs like Click, Do, Go, Enter, Sign, Buy, Book - don't hide them at the end. Eg. "Book your package now"
✅Manage their expectations on what should happen next, and give options for what to do if something goes wrong. Eg. "You'll get an email confirmation within 15 mins. If nothing comes through, check your spam or drop us an email to help@theinternet.com (yup give 'em a contact)
✅Be concise AF. Short sentences are your friend. Use 'em. Trust me. They work.

Ever feel guilty for spending time on your own business when there's still client work to do, dishes in the sink, and non-work friends to hang with?
Same. But this weekend I pushed through that guilt to spend an afternoon curled up with my @thecontentplanner printables and y'know what... It. Was. Bliss. 🏖️
In just a few hours, I got so much clarity, and a renewed sense of motivation.
⚡I feel freshly inspired to write my long-form pieces, finish my lead-gens, and try out some new techniques and topics to add more value for my audience.
What I love most about the planner, though, is the lil' section where you celebrate your wins - which, let's face it, we often forget to do. Here are some of mine from the past 7 days.
🏆Created branded IG story templates
🏆Ran my first competition
🏆Created my first personal PR strategy (thanks @shesnewsworthy)
🏆New top post on my feed!
🏆Identified 3 marketing holidays to engage with over the next 6 weeks.
.
When the to-do list is long, and the inbox is anxiety-inducing, it can be easy to lose sight of what's important, and why you're doing this whole entrepreneur thing.
⚡It's true that to serve others, you have to serve yourself, and this morning, I'm feeling newly invigorated to bring my A-game for the week ahead.
🍍Thanks, @katgaskin for sharing this gift with the world. I cannot WAIT for my real thing to arrive 📖

🍋 ➡️ Lemonade✨
Last night I did a workshop for Happy Women Dinners @jillconnection, in the lovely home of @lisamichelledesigns with 15 women. We took the lemons life has given us and looked at the many ways we can transmute 🍋’s into lemonade. We discussed many powerful mantras and how to integrate mindfulness more fully into our lives so that we can be more present and live from a clear and healed heart!💛 There are endless practices that you can start using NOW that can help you, your children, & loved ones be more free. Want to learn more about 🍋lemonade circles? Contact my team at info@elizabethwinkler.com or visit link in bio for more resources...

Nearly a month ago we celebrated our 1 year party. It was a day of celebrations, hugs, new faces, old faces and a whole lotta love. The lemonade goodness was from our pals @lighthouse.lemonade, who've been with us for a large part of this incredible year and we couldn't be more grateful. 💖⠀

Sip on the good stuff all.day.long. 🍋🍋🍋⠀
