We were honored to have on our show today, Lesley Spencer Founder of HBWM.
The CWAHM Network - Talk Radio That Helps Moms Connect
The show was incredible. She always offer so many advice and wisdom for those moms who are working at home, but today we got some additional tips that I feel will help even those struggling with the economy. Here are some of the highlights:
1) When asked do you have ideas or recommendations for HBWM to help them survive the summer months and also the slowing economy, Lesley gave the following tips: See what other services or products you can offer to your existing service. Also, contact your clients and let them know that you are available for additional work. They might refer others to you.
2) GREAT tip that I plan on implementing immediately came when asked about how she gets so much media: She mentioned that she connects with media and has developed relationships throughout the years. She also lists her cell phone on her website so she doesn’t miss important calls from the media. (That’s very important. I know I missed a media lead a few weeks ago because I did miss their call). Great advice!
3) Hire my Mom is one of the latest opportunites she offers. It connects businesses with those moms looking for work. She explained how she got this idea and also the types of businesses she sees the most of today. She stated that she sees a lot of entrepeneurs who know they need to have more help with their sites and look here to hire moms who can help. (This truly is a great way to find work. I know I recently got a client from this.)
There is so much more. I hope you listen to the archive. Lesley you rock!
