24 Ideas for Promoting Your Products and Services

Are you trying to grow your business but don’t know where to begin sharing your products and services with others?

Do you feel like you’re getting lost in the shuffle of all the “experts” telling you what to do and where to post?

I spend a majority of my coaching time with new clients discussing content creation and digital marketing. We have to build the pieces that give them space to practice using their voice, otherwise the voice discovery coaching is pretty useless. I use my experience in developing marketing programs for associations, small businesses, and global entities to guide my coaching clients in sharing content in ways that work for them.

As I’ve thought about how I can share value online and be of service to more of you in an impactful way WHILE using the skills I access daily, I realized that many of you will benefit from a simple list of promotional content ideas you can use to inform your audience about your products / services. My team and I have put together today’s post with that in mind. As you use these tips, allow yourself to go outside the box and get creative with ideas that pop into your mind. The intent when sharing your products and services is to ensure you do so in a way that helps people get to know you better, determine whether they like you, and develop trust with you. If you do that, the buyers and clients will come.

Implement one tip a week for the next 6 months or 2 tips a week for the next quarter to begin seeing results and get comfortable putting yourself out there. Feel free to connect with me for a complementary review of two pieces of short-form content once you implement your first three tips! I love seeing how people show up for themselves when they realize how easy it can be!

This month, I am back to sharing summaries of some of the chapters within The Purpose In My Pain: A 28 Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose. This anthology is a book of devotions we released with Dr. Tamika Hall of Tamika Ink back in February of this year. Today’s highlight is of a chapter written by one of the co-authors, Mercy Pinder.

“The Gift In A Broken Heart” by Mercy Pinder

In four pages, Mercy shares how she had to make some changes in how she chose and continued with friendships and relationships in her life. She had to make purposeful and heartbreaking choices that meant ending some connections and choosing to honor herself over giving of herself until she was broken. The choice came with heart break and pain, but in the end turned out to be a gift because now she is surrounded with folks who lift her up and honor her.

Tonya Johnson: “Spiritual Growth is Necessary” from “The Purpose In My Pain: A 28-Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose”


This month, I am back to sharing summaries of some of the chapters within The Purpose In My Pain: A 28 Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose. This anthology is a book of devotions we released with Dr. Tamika Hall of Tamika Ink back in February of this year. Today’s highlight is of a chapter written by one of the co-authors, Tonya Johnson.

“Spiritual Growth is Necessary” by Tonya Johnson

Tonya speaks a truth that many are afraid to say in these times: if you are a child of God, spiritual growth is necessary. It is impossible to remain the same as the day you said “Yes” to Him if you truly walk with God. Why? Because His love inspires changes. Serving Him, walking with Him, and loving Him will result in change…even if you don’t realize you are growing. And she speaks this truth because she knows it from experience. When she finally allowed herself to lean into His understanding and not hers, she was able to let go and speak positivity and life over herself to understand how everything we face leads to spiritual growth.

Tonya Johnson quote: Spiritual growth is a consciousness that reveals our reality to us. It opens us up to God's perspectives, ways, thoughts, covenants,
 and promises.

Stop Putting Yourself Down. It’s Time to Elevate!

Do you constantly find yourself too wrapped up in your flaws? If so, it could be getting in the way of living the life you dream of and COULD be loving if you’d stop putting yourself down and start embracing your flaws.

Yes, you read that correctly.

Each of us has flaws. However, many of us fight against them; harshly criticizing ourselves for not being perfect. While there is a lot of pressure around us daily to be perfect, it’s just not possible. When we try, we end up hating ourselves and living a life that isn’t true to who we are.

If you want to learn to elevate (reach your next level), you MUST embrace your flaws and start to love ALL of yourself. Let’s look at why and the benefits you can experience if you will stop putting yourself down and start loving the person that you are.

Dr. Tasha Wilson: “H.O.P.E. (He Optimizes Pain Effectively)” from “The Purpose In My Pain: A 28-Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose”


This month, I am sharing summaries of some of the chapters within The Purpose In My Pain: A 28 Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose. Today’s highlight is of a chapter written by one of the co-authors, Dr. Tasha Wilson.

“H.O.P.E. (He Optimizes Pain Effectively)” by Dr. Tasha Wilson

Tasha’s chapter is among the shortest and yet one of the most powerful in terms of truly showing how a few words spoken in the right way to the right person can pack more healing within them than paragraphs to the wrong person. If you have been affected by grief but not allowed yourself to truly heal, what she shared will speak to your heart and spirit in ways that may require many tissues and a few trips to the library and a therapist because you will be ready to do the work. (The good news is that Dr. Tasha coaches millennial women on how to rise from a place of pain to a posture of promise. Reach out if you are in that category and she can guide you toward the promise land!)

Robin M. Sample, MSW – “Broken Crayons Still Color” from “The Purpose In My Pain: A 28-Day Devotional Written by Women of Purpose”


This month, I am sharing summaries of some of the chapters within The Purpose In My Pain: A 28 Day Devotion Written by Women of Purpose. Today’s highlight is of a chapter written by one of the co-authors, Robin M. Sample, MSW.

“Broken Crayons Still Color” by Robin M. Sample, MSW

Sometimes you meet someone who share their story and you almost don’t believe it because it’s like “How are you still living?!” Robin is one of those individuals whose story comes with a trigger warning. She has endured, walked through, crawled through, and maybe sometimes sat in some serious traumas. Ones that will break your heart as you read about them. I know because even though we share this trait, my eyes began leaking as I read her story and thought of this little girl enduring so much pain so young in the ways that she did. It’s heartbreaking.

But isn’t it like God to take that heartbreaking story and allow the person who triumphed over it and came out on the other side victorious to share it with others so they know they aren’t alone?

Quote from Robin: 
When I think back on the word "comfortability" and associate it with my feelings of anger and resentment toward God, I can't help but chuckle as I ponder the very real possibility that He allowed me to become comfortable in what I chose to feel.

The Purpose In My Pain: A 28-Day Devotional Written By Women of Purpose

Dr. Tamika Hall is a multifaceted author, speaker, actor, producer, and publisher, among other things. I came to know about her because of a supplement ad on Instagram about a year ago that caught my eye because it was sassy and fun and about a topic most women won’t discuss. And y’all KNOW I love to talk about things we don’t like to talk about. I started following her and later found out that another passion of hers was publishing anthologies. At that moment, I felt my heart leap because writing with others is something I enjoy because it means I will definitely FINISH the project instead of letting it sit half done on my computer for 22 years.
