Like, come on people.
Think about it…how many followers do you have right now? And how many of them are actually buying from you?
How much of your time is spent on blogging, creating social media content, recording podcasts, appearing in other peoples groups?
And yet, you still don’t have enough clients to hit your income target this month.
It’s not more followers you need.
Its more active fans…advocates who are going to proactively rave about you and connect you into their network, AND more importantly than that you need buyers not just browsers.
And for that, you need to get out of your own way and learn how to sell.
When someone buys from you, it is never about the money. It is about the exchange of value. They give you something in return for the thing that you have that they want. Both parties should feel like it is a fair exchange and both should walk away happy.
This means your thing must be great value to the buyer and the transformation you are going to give them is going to be clear.
How important is knowing how to activate your followers and fans, so that they take action and buy from you?
What difference would that make to your life?
How good would it be to put offers out and have people actually buy them?
Now what would that feeling be worth to you?
What would that important piece of the business puzzle be worth?
£1000? £500? or how about £149???
Learning how to put offers out that people want to buy. Learning how to use social media in a way that doesn’t leave you pulling your hair out. Learning how to follow up with less sleaze and more ease.
THESE THINGS WILL TRANSFORM YOUR BUSINESS.
But here’s the thing. I am not going to teach that 121 for £149 because it would take up too much of my time, and my business model is 90% one to many. with group coaching and VIP masterminds. I love teaching this stuff in a group, because we have fun along the way and realise our fears are just like everyone elses.
This is why, next week Friday more than 70 business owners will join me to learn, in just 10 days, while actually following the process live, how to make sales fast in a fun and easy way.
The programme is called A Grand in Your Hand and more than 600 business owners have taken part in it so far
The strategies business owners learn in this short programme, they use over and over again to build their business. Some of my clients that did this programme 12 months ago, have now completely transformed their business.
So is that worth £149 to you
Or do you still have objections? Are you still like, “yeah but that wouldn’t work for me” or “you don’t understand how hard selling stuff in my niche is” you’d be surprised.
Listen, I grew a 6 figure coaching business in a field where nobody likes to spend money on themselves, and I have doubled my income during a global flipping pandemic, when apparently everyone is broke.
The point is, followers are a vanity metric…yes you need people to follow what you do, but thats about being a leader, taking people someone with your content, your thought leadership, your personality.
The most important thing though, is knowing how to activate the followers you already have.
So if you’d like to get involved, heres the link to sign up…oh and as a special Black Friday offer, you can bring a business buddy for FREE, how cool is that. Yes I am offering a BOGOF deal ha ha
I seriously want to help people make more money in their business, and stop wasting time chasing followers…they don’t want to be caught, they want to follow you of their own free will.
