How to approach content on you
I run a service based business – event entertainment. I offer about 8 core services (dancers, musicians, circus acts, body paint, makeup stations, event hosts – comedian/drag Queen, promo staff and roving actors). I’m wondering if I’m stretching myself too thin – all of our performers are true experts and incredible at what they do, but worry having too many offers creates a “jack of all trades, master or none” vibe and hurts my seo. Thoughts?
We have a business that essentially develops exhibitions for museums and galleries, but we’re basically relying on public funding to cover costs, so we’re not even covering salaries at this point. We’ve been trying to come up with ideas to diversify what we do – art & culture podcasts, ticketed events, merchandise, online sales, etc, but we don’t know how to implement changes, or what will work. How do we take the next step?

Kia ora, Ko Renee tōku ingoa, I am based in Perth, Australia, and I launched my pakihi Māori in August of this year. I have been struggling with marketing and sales. I have paid for facebook ads that have generated alot of interest but that never convert to sales. The basis of my business: Customers send through a photo, and can choose to get canvas or photo prints of their tamariki that also includes the pepeha and birth stats of the pēpi, all in te reo Māori. I do baby bodysuits with printed pepeha on them as well as bedroom posters for tamariki to hang on their wall. pepi-prints.com is my website. I know that my product is extremely niche, but I believe that it can be a success with the right knowledge, would love some assistance.Ngā mihi ki a koutou katoa :)
What is the best process for determining the base break even and profitibility of the business… from which one can determine a fair charge out rate to clients?
We started a business almost 3 years ago now, and have seen consistent growth, year on year. Our business is seasonal though, so we are looking at two things:1. Increased awareness, sales and distribution in NZ2. Exporting to Northern Hemisphere countriesRegarding these two points:1. We don’t feel that we have got our online strategy entirely right – is there someone able to help us with this? We need help with achieving point 1… mainly in terms of marketing…2. We really need guidance on how to go about exporting. We have been in touch with NZTE but it is very slow in responding, and we are itching to get moving… Any advice/support here would be fantastic.

I have a couple of books for sale on Amazon, how can I generate sales please.
I need a business mentor/advisor for business development and marketing (strategy), to create a strategic brand and plan. Currently I contract my services to Māori organisations (Service Provided: Bi-cultural professional supervision mainly in the social services/social work sector). I have a PGrad Diploma qualification. I want to ‘branch out’ to contract my services to the relationship managers who engage with Māori in community, with hapu, Iwi who are employed by government agencies (i.e. ACC, MSD, MBIE, etc). TIA
