What to do if you've created a course that doesn't sell.

When I first started creating courses I made a few that didn’t sell. I had all these videos and worksheets that I’d spent hours making for absolutely no return.

But what can you do right?

You learn some great lessons and you move on.

But what if there was something else you could do with them to actually make money?

One great way to use them is to put them on Skillshare. You get paid for every minute someone watches of your content and there's loads of content on there to help you build your business too!

If you’re not already on Skillshare you can check it out here and get 2 months of premium free with this link. (aff link)

Not enough time but want to have a bigger impact?

Not enough time but want to have a bigger impact?

When I first had the idea of starting my own business, I didn't know how I was going to find the time for it. I barely had time to sit down for 5 minutes with a newborn and a degree to finish, let alone run a business!

There's so much to do around the house, food needs to be cooked (and bought), the kids need to be looked after, you've got Game of Thrones to watch on the TV... (2 weeks to go!)

If you want it badly enough then you'll make time for it. So how do you get more time?

Well, you don't, there is no more time so it's all about how you use what you have. Being smart about how you use your time is pretty much like getting more of it, so here's 5 ways to 'get more time':

1 - Create a schedule for your family so everyone is doing the chores and not just you. After all, you're not the only one who makes the mess so you don’t have to be the only one responsible for cleaning it up.

2 - Send your children to some kind of childcare if they're not in school or ask grandparents to have them one day a week. They'll get more time with their family and you'll get more time to work. We have a daddy daughter day every Saturday where my husband spends some quality time with our daughter. He works 9-5 Monday to Friday at his business so they both love having that one to one time on the weekend to do something fun together.

3 - Hire help. Whether that's a virtual assistant, a cleaner, a gardener, whatever you need. Spending the money on having someone else do it will give you the time you need to get other money making tasks done. If you charge $97 for a one hour call with you and a cleaner is $10 an hour, that’s 9 hours of cleaning you could get back.

4 - Say no to things you don't want to go to. If you've been asked to organise a bake sale, a charity car wash, a social event for work or some other soul destroying waste of your time, say no. There are plenty of other people who will do it. If you say no they're just going to move down the list to the next person.

5 - Stop watching so much TV! You don't have to watch everything that Shonda Rhymes ever wrote, no matter how awesome it is. Save them all up to binge watch in one day if you must or ask for them on boxset for Christmas. Just don't spend every evening in front of the TV and wonder why you're not getting anything done.

What can you do today to be smarter with your time?

One thing you definitely can do is make sure you're attracting the right audience to you and that you have a way to communicate with them. One of the best ways I've found to do this is via a Facebook group.

My top 2 favourite ways to grow your Facebook group without paid advertising are:

1 – Host a mini masterclass on a topic you know very well via livestream and promote the event all over social media. If people want to learn about the topic, all they need to do is join your group for free access.

2 – Create a resource that’s only for the group (like a value packed PDF) and put it in the files section of the group. You have to be a member of the group to access it, so let people know what it is and why they need it, then direct them to join your group to get a copy.

I go way more in depth about how and why these work, plus another 3 ways you can promote your group for free here!

Struggling to create your first online course?

One way to create an awesome mini video course and give it away as a freebie to grow your list is to use an automated email series.

MailChimp and Aweber (and I’m sure all the other big names) have functions where you can set up a series of emails that are sent at predetermined intervals. Using this means you can record say 5 videos, put them in one email each and then when people sign up they’ll get day one immediately and each subsequent day is delivered automatically 24 hours later.

It’s an easy way to deliver a ton of value with zero stress on your part.

Are you still trading time for money?

Do you ever feel like you're having success in your business but you really have to work for it and you're not sure how much more you have to give?

I felt like that for a long time in my business. I'd spent all my time getting the back end stuff ready in my business, thinking that once it was done it would only be a matter of time until I got clients.

And it was only matter of time BUT I had to actively look for clients. I had to actively find people I knew needed my help but weren't aware of me yet.

It was EXHAUSTING.

I would spend about 10 hours on Facebook every single day. I couldn't go more than about 15 minutes without checking my notifications because I was so desperate to get clients and make sales.

I would post 4 times a day in 8 different Facebook groups (all individual posts!) I would search for keywords in Facebook groups and respond to people's posts who were having issues I could help with. I was giving so much free value that I really was giving it all away and I was putting offers out at least 3 times a week... but nothing.

I drove myself crazy wondering what I was doing wrong. Why was it so hard?!

It wasn't until I took a step back and looked at all the women who I admired and what they were doing in their business that I realised something.

They all had a growing and engaged Facebook group.

And on top of that, their group was pretty much the only place they posted on Facebook.

So I stopped posting so much. I drastically reduced my time online from 10 hours a day to about 2 and I stopped giving so much away for free. But the biggest change I made was starting my own Facebook group. 

A year ago I decided that starting my own Facebook group sounded like a good idea. It meant that I'd have somewhere where I could build relationships with potential clients, I could show my expertise and my knowledge and I'd be able to pitch without worrying about breaking the rules.

I've just reached 1,000 members in my group and over half of them have joined in the last couple of months. And truthfully, over 80% of my sales currently come from my Facebook community because this is what happens THERE:
- I've built relationships with so many of the members.
- I show up there every day and my Facebook group is known as a place to find amazing value and community.

Once your Facebook group is set up and growing consistently, building relationships and converting leads to paying clients who want your passive income offers becomes effortless. That leaves you with more time to do the things you actually want to do, like spend time with your friends and family, travel or even go to the cinema on a Tuesday afternoon because you can.

I created From Crickets to Clients because I saw so many of my clients struggling, giving up on their groups and wasting the online goldmine a group can be, all because they didn't have a plan to follow to start getting results from their groups.

I know you don't want yet another course that's supposed to be full of "the how" but leaves you with more questions than answers and I know you don't want to waste what little time you have. That's why this course is bite size video modules with accompanying PDF workbooks to help you quickly and easily grow your Facebook group into a space that not only attracts new members but also converts them to paying clients.

Once you enrol you'll get access to all of the modules at once, so you can work through them at your own pace or Netflix style binge watch it all in 2 hours.

We all have our strengths and weaknesses

Even though my business is focused on passive income, I still love creating content. Sharing my story, sharing value, connecting with people through my words is something I love to do.

It’s also how people get to know, like and trust you and how you share what you have to offer with the world. Not to mention sharing your products and services is how you make sales ;)

But I also know that it’s not something that comes easily to everyone else. Like most things, we all have our strengths and weaknesses. Or, rather, those things that we’re not as good at as we’d like to be.

So, with that in mind, here’s 3 things you could share on social media:

1 – The 3 most important lessons you’ve learnt this year,

2 – Your number one resource for X (in your business),

3 – A goal you never thought you’d reach since you’ve been in business and exactly how you did it.

Creating content doesn’t have to be difficult. It doesn’t have to be profound or perfect every single time, putting yourself out there and being real is what counts.

Are you reusing what you already have?

Are you reusing what you already have?

Passive income is awesome. There's no other word to describe it.

It's using what you've already got, extending its lifespan, making more money from it and NOT creating any extra work for yourself.

Setting up passive income streams for your business is easy and doesn't require any tech skills on your part. And the best part is, pretty much every kind of business can have a passive income stream.

So if you spent an hour setting up your passive product and then whenever you wanted a boost, you could post on social media, email your list, do a livestream (or whatever) and make money without having to do anything, wouldn't that be amazing?

Did you know that if you made just $19 every day, in a year that's $6,935? That's extra cash that you haven't traded your time for.

If you made $100 every day, that's $36,500 a year – WITHOUT counting all the income from your 1:1 services. I don't know about you but an EXTRA $36,500 in my bank account every year would be pretty cool.

But it's so hard to make $100 every day right?

No, it’s honestly not.

And since I know that it isn't as simple as make a product and sell it, I am bringing in Magnetic Branding Strategist Beth Griffith to help you create your step-by-step strategy to SELL that product, so it doesn't become another fruitless piece for your theoretical portfolio.

We all know that the wealthy have multiple streams of income, and this is one of the ways that you create one without taking away from your already limited hours and emotional energy.

This programme isn't for everyone - it is only for those whose businesses are ready to add an additional stream of income, those who have begun growing an audience and are seeing sales.

What would you do if you made an extra $36,500 by this time next year without having to HUSTLE for it?

You can apply to find out if this is a good fit for you here!

If I gave you $14,000 to work for a couple of days and then showed you how to promote your work from those few days off and on over the next year, would you want it?

Because that's EXACTLY what I am offering to the 10 women who join Passive Breakthrough.

You invest in yourself once, spend an intense couple of days with hardcore focus, and then you will have two passive income products ready to rock and roll in 2018.

We knock out the creation of your products in TWO days and then you have 4 weeks of ongoing support in the Facebook group, as you start selling your product, to address any adjustments you need made.

Did you make money from your last Netflix style binge?

Growing your audience isn’t difficult, it isn’t time consuming and it isn’t expensive, even if you have zero tech skills.

If you want to grow your Facebook group then you have to talk about it, you have to put it out there and you have to tell people why they need to be in your group.

One thing that always stopped me putting myself and my group out there was my mindset. What if people don’t like what I have to say?

What if people don’t think I’m any good?

What if what I put out there doesn’t help anyone?!

It’s crazy where your mind can go when you’re new to running an online business.

It took a while but I changed my mindset, and that for me was huge, but I know that for some of you your mindset is already on point and nothing is happening for you. It’s the know how that’s letting you down, you haven’t found what works for you. You need the practical strategies, the tools and the techniques that actually work to help you grow your Facebook group.

You’re tired of all the fluff and filler, the webinars full of zero value and sales pitches galore. You want something packed full of easily digestible, to the point action steps that you can take right now to grow your group.

You know that growing your Facebook group helps you to grow your bank account, because when you have an audience full of people who know, like and trust you sales become easier. Creating what to sell becomes simple and objections like “I can’t afford it” stop popping up, because your audience already knows how awesome you are and exactly how you can help them.

If you’re struggling to grow your group one thing that works really well is to put a PDF packed full of value in the files section of your group, then promote that freebie and direct the people who want it to your group. They can only access the file from inside your group and once they’ve joined they’re going to stick around for at least a little while to see what your group is all about.

I've created From Crickets to Clients - a 5 module course that will help you do exactly that. It's full of bitesize videos with PDF workbooks to help you grow your group and your bank account. Plus a bonus module with 50 questions that will get your group engaged straight away.

You’re ready to learn how to grow your group with zero ad spend, how to create an engaged group (or revive a quiet one) and how you can spend an hour (or less) a day in your group and still be actively converting members to paying clients. Sign up here now to Netflix style binge the content in less than 2 hours.

Is your Facebook group feeling more like work than fun?

Is your Facebook group feeling more like work than fun?

You started your group because you were told it was THE thing to do to get clients, only now it feels like a ball and chain.

You don't want to close it because that means throwing away all the time and effort you've already put into it, but at the same time you just can't face doing anything with it.

Every time you think you should post, you're not feeling what you've written.

Every time you want to sell out your new 1:1 or group, you know no one in your group is going to buy.

What's the point of spending all that time, effort and energy on something that isn't serving you?

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, your group isn’t getting you results?

I’ve been there. I used to spend 10+ hours a day on social media with very little to show for it, except increased levels of stress and frustration. I’d got to the point where I didn’t want to spend time in my group, because I was getting better results posting in other people's groups.

But once I started focusing on my Facebook group, because I'd reached a plateau using other groups, I realised that I wasn’t using it to its full potential.

I spent so long tweaking what I was doing in my group, adjusting the way I promoted it and reading up on every piece of fb group advice I could find, but eventually I’d created and nurtured this community of women who were talking to each other, sharing tips and tools to build each other up and congratulating each other.

I realised that I’d created this community of women who were engaged with what I did, who interacted with what I had to say and (the biggest thing I was missing) were ready to work with me. Once I started promoting what I had for sale, I quickly realised what a powerful sales tool a Facebook group can be.

My group is over a year old now and it’s still growing and engaged. 80% of my sales come from the group and I’m loving working on and in my business every day.

But I still remember what it felt like when my group felt like a weight around my neck and that is why I created From Crickets to Clients. I’ve put together every tool, technique and strategy I used to grow my group full of potential clients and how I easily convert group members to clients every day.

I’ll show you how you can:

- Attract your ideal client to the group so that they come to you,

- Keep (or get) the group engaged so that new members want to stay,

- Convert members to clients so you can fill your calendar,

- Promote the group organically (with no ad spend.)

With From Crickets to Clients you’ll receive a self-study course with 5 modules and downloadable PDFs that will turn your soul sucking business into something that grows your bank account. 

Are you ready? Here’s your access right now for $57, where you can Netflix style binge watch the training in under 2 hours.

Wondering what REALLY gets you results?

Wondering what REALLY gets you results?

About a year into my business I’d hit a definite plateau and it was like nothing I did made a difference. So I decided that instead of having all these ideas of what I COULD do flying around my head, I’d write it all down.

All my ideas,

All the advice I’d been given by coaches I’d worked with,

All the strategies I’d got from courses and webinars and PDFs,

All the words you’re “supposed” to use in your copy to get guaranteed results (and the ones you can’t use.)

I wrote it all down and it took the best part of an hour.

I was tired at the end of it, drained of all the information in my head.

Then I took a step back to read it all and after a while it hit me.

It was all completely different.

Some of it was conflicting information. Well, more than some.

There was almost no consistency to any of it, except for one thing…

It all worked.

As individual pieces, all of that information worked to a certain extent and it had all worked for someone. The people I had learnt all of it from – they all got results doing what they do and they’re teaching other people what they know works.

I’ve got nothing against that, I do it too. If I know something works then of course I’m going to tell my clients so that they can get results too.

But here’s the other thing – not all of it will work for everyone.

And that’s also the best part, you can pick and choose what you like to do, what feels in alignment for you and what works for you.

Whatever you decide to do, consistency and persistence is what really works.

Showing up every day, putting the time and the effort in, giving it your best, your all – that is what gets results.

We all know that overnight successes are anything but, so why are you still expecting it to happen for you?

It’s time to stop wondering what to do, pick one thing and go for it.

When is it going to be your time?

When is it going to be your time?

All you really want is freedom. Freedom to spend your day how you want to, work with who you want to, delegate the stuff you don’t want to do (like cooking, cleaning and washing clothes, right!) only this big plan you had of starting an online business hasn’t worked out yet.
And you have no idea why.

You’ve downloaded so many freebies that your inbox is flooded with emails every day, only none of them actually help you.

You’ve signed up for courses that you haven’t finished, because they’re just wrong for you, or worse, you’ve finished courses that didn’t actually fulfil their promises and now you’re wishing you’d saved your money.

There is so much information out there that you don’t need to spend a penny if you don’t want to, it’ll just take all the time you can give it to google your way to the answer.

How many YouTube videos can you watch before you’re more confused than when you started?

Because it’s true that you don’t need a coach to help you achieve success, you can do it on your own, and to be honest that’s not what a coach is for.

A coach is there to help you get results quicker, to achieve your goals faster and to avoid the pitfalls along the way.

A coach is there to support you, to keep you accountable, to give you feedback and to help you shorten your learning curve.

It’s the same with anything, if you want to learn how to knit then you find someone who can knit to show you. If you want to learn how to do a French braid, then you find someone who can do it to show you.

So when it comes to growing your audience, setting up passive income and making sales in your business, you go to someone who knows how to do those things.

I get where you are right now; I spent 6 months with Google and YouTube trying to grow my business and in those 6 months I made $50. In total, not even per month.

But then I bit the bullet and hired a coach. 6 weeks later I’d made over $1,500. That was almost 18 months ago now.

At the end of the day you’re good at what you do, otherwise you wouldn’t be starting a business around it. The only thing that’s holding you back is the business side of things.

You’re not making sales, because when you pitch it’s to crickets.

You’re not making money, because you can’t find anyone who wants to buy.

You’re not seeing any of that freedom you thought you would have by now – no sales coming in while you’re in the playground with your kids, no appointments in your calendar when you wake up, no new requests to join your Facebook group while you’re doing the school run.

When is it going to be your time?

When are you going to show up, be seen and start making bank in your business?

You’ve spent so long already not getting any results. It’s your time to get your skills, knowledge and experience out there and start helping people. That’s why you started your business in the first place - because you want to help people and you want to make money doing it.

That’s exactly what I did. I knew that there was more than “just” being a stay at home mama. I knew that I could help other women realise that dream too and I knew that the internet and the online business world was the perfect way to do that.

I’m not the only one, that’s your dream too – to have a successful online business that gives you the freedom to spend time with your family when you want to, to buy that new bike or those ballet lessons, to surprise your partner with a gift just because.

I’ll show you how to get visible on social media, so that your ideal clients can see and find you, so you can stop chasing them.

I’ll show you how to grow your audience, so that when you launch what you have to offer, you have an audience full of potential clients who want to work with you – no more crickets!

I’ll show you how to make sales and set up passive income in your business (if you want to,) so that you can start having more freedom in your life to do things like take your kids to the park, make sales while you’re doing the school run and even while you sleep, because that freedom is the whole reason you started your business.

I’ve got 4 spots coming up in my calendar for the women who are ready to work 1:1 to start getting results in their business, to get personalised support, advice and feedback so they can stop wasting their time, energy and effort and start stepping into their power and sharing their gifts with the world.

I know you’re ready for more from your business, so to find out more about how you can get your 1:1 spot, comment below and I’ll tell you all the details.

Are you always worried you're doing it wrong?

Are you always worried you're doing it wrong?

For so long in my business I was worried about doing the wrong thing, not the right thing. I was worried about whether I’d said the wrong thing in my sales copy or used the wrong words. I was worried that I was falling short of social media etiquette, that I was spending too much time on journaling, or not enough, or that I was focussing on the wrong things, (because you don’t need a website, but you need a website, otherwise how will people ever take you seriously?!)

I was once told that you can’t use exclamation marks in your copy, because it makes you seem unprofessional.

So that must mean I’m unprofessional then!

Because when I was stuck feeling like everything I did was wrong, like second guessing myself over every little action, I didn’t get any results.

I was trapped in this never ending circle of worry. I worried I wasn’t doing it right, and then I worried that I was worrying about nothing, and then I was worried about how much I was worrying about everything.

And that is a shitty place to be, never mind how it feels to constantly be on edge about my business.

I’m not surprised I wasn’t getting any results when I couldn’t let go. I was putting out all this negative energy and I know it was driving people away.

Would you want to work with someone who was practically a nervous wreck every time they got on the phone with you, because they were worried about the advice they were giving you?

Hell no!

But thankfully the mindset work I started doing started paying off and the worry eventually disappeared. Once the worry was gone I could finally step into my power and my self-confidence grew. I trusted myself again and I could finally see that all the awesome value I was putting out for free online was actually helping people!

It wasn’t in my head, it wasn’t just for show. I was actually making a difference.

So when was the last time you decided that it’s time to stop worrying?

You can't sell to an empty room

What’s one really fast and authentic way to make sales?

By growing your email list.

Because if you don’t have an audience, then you’re not going to make sales. You’re not going to sell to an empty room.

So you do what you’ve been told, you craft the perfect freebie, an amazing post to go with it and you still get nothing back - it sucks.

I’ve been there too; it took me 11 freebies to get the first 11 people on my email list!

But I learnt that there wasn’t anything wrong with my freebie itself, I just needed to position it and promote it differently.

Once I’d done that my list grew by over 200 people in just over a week.

And now that I have a list full of my ideal clients?

Sales are so much easier.

I can send an email and make sales the same day.

I can send an email and more people will join my Facebook group.

I can send an email and take the person who opens it one step closer to becoming a paying client.

Because THAT is what an email list is all about. It’s a direct way to warm up those cold leads, a direct way to build relationships.

Not everyone sees all your social media posts, but so many people will open your emails. Not everyone wants to comment on your post and tell you about the problem they’re having right now, but so many people WILL reply to your email to tell you. And then suddenly you’re having a conversation with a potential client.

If you're struggling with creating a freebie that grows your email list, on Friday 13th October I'm hosting a new and intimate group call all about creating an awesome freebie to grow your email list.

I'll be covering:

📖 How to decide on the content for your freebie, so it leaves people wanting more instead of underwhelmed.

⏰ How to quickly create a freebie that solves a problem for your ideal client and doesn't take hours to make.

✔ The steps to take from idea to promotion, plus the basics of a funnel, so you can fill your calendar with calls or set up passive income too.

📲 How to promote your freebie without needing to spend money on advertising.

Spaces are limited to 10 spots (Only 7 left!) to make sure you have the opportunity to ask as many questions as you want and get the feedback you need.

The call will be held on Zoom and will have a private Facebook group where you'll be able to ask questions and get feedback for 7 days after the call.

Why is it easy for some people to grow their email list, but for you it isn’t?

You do what you’ve been told, you create a freebie that you know will solve a problem for your ideal client, you put it out there on social media, but your list stays the same.

I’ve been there too.

It took me over 6 months to get 11 people on my email list. It also took 11 different freebies, 11 different sign up pages, 11 different funnels and ZERO sales.

It was torture!

But then I spent time studying the freebies I’d downloaded, I went back through all the funnels and I took a few courses here and there - all to discover that growing your email list is easy.

In one weekend I added over 120 people to my email list and then a week later I doubled my list again. I only needed to make a few tweaks to what I was doing to get these amazing results.

I discovered that my problem was one of three things:

1 - The freebie I created wasn’t what people wanted, or

2 - I didn’t promote it in front of the right people, or

3 - I hadn’t said the right thing.

It’s easy to add 120 people to your email list in one weekend and I’m going to help you do it too.

Passive income is awesome!

Passive income is awesome and you know having it will free up time in your business to focus on other money making activities, or give you that freedom to re-invest it into your business to take it to the next level.

Whatever you decide to do with the money you make from passive income, you know it will make a huge difference to your business, but actually putting it together and remembering all the different parts is getting a little overwhelming.

Are you struggling in your business right now?

Are you struggling in your business right now?

Today I'm feeling so grateful for technology. My grandmother turned 85 today and she still lives in our hometown 128 miles away from where we live now, (which is really far in the UK!)

I usually go and visit on her birthday with my daughter, but now that Jasmine has started school, I can't go during the week to see my grandmother anymore. We don't think she's going to have many birthdays left, so I was feeling bad about not going to see her.

But thanks to WhatsApp I sent her a video of my daughter singing happy birthday to her this morning before school and then when my uncle went to visit her this afternoon, we video called so we could see each other.

Is it the same as being there in person?

No, but it's definitely the next best thing.

20 years ago that wouldn't have been possible. Even 10 years ago the technology wasn't as widely used or as available to so many people as it is now.

But now there's so much you can do online! Instead of only being able to see your family when you travel to them, you can pick up the phone and video call.

You don't have to miss important occasions or moments like baby's first steps - we recorded Jasmine's and shared the video with all our friends and family in a few minutes.

Instead of moving around to find work, you can start your own business from home online.

Instead of needing to commute to work every day, you can work from your laptop in the sunshine or curled up on the sofa.

These days I do a lot of work from my phone or from my laptop at home. Running an online business has helped me achieve my biggest goal of staying home with my daughter, while still being able to support our family. 

And today it's helped me do the school run and be 128 miles away at the same time.

If you want to run an online business and you're reading this email, you already have everything you need to start.

If you're struggling in your business right now, then feel free to reply to this email with what you feel the biggest problem is right now and I'll do my best to give you 1-3 action steps you can take right now to move forward.

P.S. Your business can help you achieve your big goals too. All you need to get there is more clients and here's how you get them.

I've put together every tool, technique and strategy I used to grow my Facebook group full of potential clients and how I easily convert group members to clients every day. I'll show you how you can: 

- Attract your ideal client to the group so that they come to you, 
- Keep (or get) the group engaged so that new members want to stay, 
- Convert members to clients so you can fill your calendar, 
- Promote the group organically (with no ad spend.)

With From Crickets to Clients you'll receive a self-study course with 5 modules and downloadable PDFs that will turn your soul sucking business into something that grows your bank account.

It's your turn to spend more time with your family and friends, have the option to travel whenever you want to and be able to proudly tell everyone it's thanks to your business you can live the life you love.

Not getting the results you want in your biz?

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, everything in your business just isn’t getting you results or it’s getting you even less results?

You’ve lost the excitement you used to feel for your business and now it feels like time to give up.

I’ve been there. I used to spend 10+ hours a day on social media with very little to show for it, except increased levels of stress and frustration. I’d got to the point where I didn’t want to work on my business anymore because it felt pointless.

Even though I love what I do, not being able to actually work with anyone made everything so tedious.

But once I started focusing on my Facebook group, I realised that I wasn’t using it to its full potential. I’d created and nurtured this community of women who were talking to each other, sharing tips and tools to build each other up and congratulating each other.

I realised that I’d created this community of women who were engaged with what I did, who interacted with what I had to say and (the biggest thing I was missing) were ready to work with me. Once I started promoting what I had for sale, I quickly realised what a powerful sales tool a Facebook group can be.

My group is over a year old now and it’s still growing and engaged. 80% of my sales come from the group and I’m loving working on and in my business every day.

But I still remember what it felt like this time last year and that is why I created From Crickets to Clients. I’ve put together every tool, technique and strategy I used to grow my group full of potential clients and how I easily convert group members to clients every day.

I’ll show you how you can:

- Attract your ideal client to the group so that they come to you,

- Keep (or get) the group engaged so that new members want to stay,

- Convert members to clients so you can fill your calendar,

- Promote the group organically (with no ad spend.)

With From Crickets to Clients you’ll receive a self-study course with 5 modules and downloadable PDFs that will turn your soul sucking business into something that grows your bank account.

You don't need to be profound!

You don't need to be profound!

My coach told me something a little while ago that was honestly such a game changer for me. When it comes to writing content, sales pages, whatever it might be – you don’t need to be profound.

To me this was like what?!

You mean I don’t have to try and think of something clever and witty and full of value and completely life changing all at the same time? I can just write things as they are and it will still resonate with people?

And honestly, it’s so true. Sometimes trying to be profound and witty and whatever else just changes your message that little bit too much, then suddenly you’re getting crickets instead of comments and clients.

It’s like with my Facebook group course, I was trying to tell people how the course was so awesome (it is) and how having a Facebook group that actively helps you to get clients is life changing because of x and y and z and a and b and every other letter in the alphabet and how all of that would change their life! When what I really needed to talk about was the here and now, like how having a Facebook group would help them get clients without spending money on advertising.

The people looking for my course weren’t looking for how I could help them change their lives, (because having a successful and profitable business IS life changing,) but they were just looking for a way to get new clients. I didn’t need to talk about the big stuff, I just needed to talk about how what I was offering could help them get clients and take those next steps towards their big picture.

It's so freeing to feel like I don’t have to spend hours trying to write something amazing, that I can write something and show it as what it is and still connect with people. So, when was the last time you gave yourself permission to not be profound in your message?

Struggling to create your first course?

Struggling to create your first course?

You want passive income in your business. You want to wake up in the morning and see the PayPal notifications from people signing up to your courses overnight.

Only right now you don’t have any self-study courses for people to sign up to. It would be awesome if you did, but you’re not sure of the best way to create a course, let alone how to connect the payment for it, manage access to it, make sure only the people who have signed up for it can see it etc.

Headache inducing, right?

What if I told you that you can create your first self-study course using just an automated email sequence and a PayPal button?

If you already have something like MailChimp, ConvertKit, Aweber etc and you use PayPal, you have everything you need to create a course today.

I created a video on exactly how you can do it. If you want to watch it for free, then just click here!

I don't want control, I want to let go.

I don't want control, I want to let go.

I was listening to P!nk’s new song earlier and this line really jumped out at me:

“I don’t want control, I want to let go.”

How many times have you felt like that?

I’d be the first person to admit that I’m a control freak, but what I crave more than anything is to be able to LET GO.

At the risk of sounding like Elsa, sometimes it just feels so good to let it all go and to just go with the flow, to not feel the need to control everything. But the need to control everything comes from a less than perfect upbringing and the fact that if I was in control when I could be, it made me feel a little bit less powerless at those times I was at the mercy of someone else.

And then I think about my husband. I think of all the times we’ve done something crazy and unexpected and had an awesome time as a result. Those times when I can let go and not be in control are amazing, but they take trust. I have to trust that my husband won’t let anything or anyone hurt me as a result. I have to trust that whatever happens, I’ll be okay with it or I’ll be able to fix it.

For a long time that was the biggest reason I couldn’t create the success I wanted in my business – I couldn’t trust myself.

I couldn’t trust that I could create those results for myself. I couldn’t trust that everything would work out okay. I couldn’t trust that I wouldn’t inadvertently make everything worse for me and my husband and our daughter. Why?

Because I can’t control other people’s responses to me. I can’t make people sign up to my courses or my 1:1 coaching or my email list or Facebook group and it took a long time to be okay with that.

It took a long time to be okay with the fact that I am only ever in control of myself and my actions, when it comes to life and business!

When I realised that, it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders.

I only needed to be responsible for me and my actions. The energy I’d been wasting trying to essentially control other people, suddenly I had it all back to use for myself. I didn’t need to worry about the outcome of things anymore, I only needed to make sure I did everything I wanted/needed to do at any given time and then I could let it go.

I don’t need to worry about the outcome if I’ve done all the actions.

I don’t need to worry about signing clients if I’m actively working in and on my business (and actively promoting myself.)

When you trust yourself and you essentially stay in your own lane, everything will work out in the end.

P.S. One thing you can control is your Facebook group. Spending the time every day actively engaging and growing your Facebook group will help you to create a community full of potential clients who can't wait to work with you. 

I've created a self study course to help you:

📲 Attract your ideal client to the group,

📲 Keep (or get) the group engaged,

📲 Convert members to clients,

📲 Promote the group organically (with no ad spend.)

If you’re ready to learn how to grow your group with zero ad spend, how to create an engaged group (or revive a quiet one) and how you can spend an hour (or less) a day in your group and still be actively converting members to paying clients, find out more and sign up here!
