Success comes from consistent and persistent effort

Cris Valladolid digital marketing services for small to medium business

Please introduce yourself and your start-up Cris Valladolid to our reader.
I’m originally from Phillipines, married to a Spanish man and is now living in Munich Germany. Before coming to Germany, I worked in a bank in the Philippines for eight years, and then moved to various Financial Planning companies in Australia. At first, the decision to try online work was mostly for fun and to gain experience in the online world, but I quickly got hooked on the rush and left my full time job to make online career as my real source of income.

I created my business as a means to reach out towards motivated men and women who are interested in looking outside of the box and trying something else, like getting into building their business online and losing the 9 to 5 mentality. I provide the detailed step by step procedures to my client’s specific to list building, funnel automation, course creation and social media marketing.

I myself made the step from the rat race to running my own online business. I know there are overwhelming amount of information out there, it’s difficult to know what path to take. Because of this I use my personal experience and learnings gained from social media trainings I took and the lessons I learned to teach motivated men and women the detailed profitable action steps required to build a business online and to have a thriving authorities in their own online niches.

How did you get the idea to Cris Valladolid?
The business idea came about through my own journey, where I realised there is a need for dedicated coaches to assist would-be entrepreneurs in understanding the world of online business. There is a lot of confusing information out there, but very little concrete assistance.

The name itself arose because I am a consultant and I decided to use my own name as my brand name because this will help me and the business gain more awareness and traction.

How difficult was the start and what challenges you had to overcome?
Marketing a brand new start-up in a foreign country is very challenging and can feel impossible due to the fierce competition. In the beginning, I felt so alone, and it was a lot of hard work. I realised that being consistent with my plan is the only solution to whatever challenges I am facing. Another thing is by making sure that I am using the right tools and always focusing on my biggest “why”, which is more time for my family and to be able to help others in their business ventures. To keep myself on the path I had chosen, I set clear goals, always plan ahead and try to foresee any obstacles that could arise in the future.

Now that I am more established, I focus on my clients who purchase my services. Being a good coach has required me to pour enormous time, skills and careful planning into my clients. I am always searching for ways to ensure that my clients get the right guidance and that extra push to make them become successful online entrepreneurs.

Who is your target audience?
I am specifically offering my services to anyone who is passionate about creating their own online business but doesn’t have the technical knowhow to make it happen. In other words, people who want to leave the 9 to 5 job and expand their horizons by going online, but are afraid that it may not work for them.

What is the USP of your startup (Unique Selling Point)?
I’m so passionate in taking the stress out about technology to every online entrepreneur for them to have more time for the things they love in their business. My UPS is that unlike other online coaches who only provide general information, I provide the detailed step by step procedures and also the tools they need to make a success of their business and stand head and shoulders above their competition.

Can you describe a typical workday for you?
I wake up at 5:30 in the morning and prepare breakfast for myself and my husband. I then read relevant social media related articles or any business related books that will assist me in enhancing my skills as a coach and businesswoman for an hour or two. After that, I check my emails and social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and engage with my current and prospect clients for any questions they have. Then I devote the rest of my day planning and improving my online courses.

Where do you see yourself and your start-up Cris Valladolid in five years?
I see myself, and my start-up Cris Valladolid, as the one stop shop digital marketing services for small to medium business owners in five years’ time or maybe sooner.

What 3 tips would you give other Start-up founders on the way?
1. Success comes from consistent and persistent effort. Keep learning, keep going and continue on making improvements. Don’t get discouraged if your pace feels slow. One effort at a time is still lapping everyone on the couch who aren’t doing anything.

2. Start simple and improve as you go. A lot of people spend so much time on their website, their logo and a lot of other finer details. What they don’t understand is that they are wasting their time. The most important thing in the beginning is to focus on building your community and getting sales.

3. Don’t listen to the noise around you, just focus on growing your business. There are a lot of distractions out there, people who will discourage you, try to distract you, but as long as you stay focussed on your goal, you will make a success out of your business.
