The “aha” moment that took me 5 years to share. Episode 147

Come behind the scenes with me as I share my most recent “aha” moment.

It’s a simple concept, but it’s an incredibly powerful way for us to:

  • Visually see the status of our marketing and monitor it every month
  • Know at a glance what we need to focus on
  • Understand how we can set ourselves up to sell more every month.

Here’s the Sales Funnel Graphic I promised you




I have to give our  Ads Made Easy Coach, Cathay Hayhurst credit for sparking this idea, and a big thanks to Tina Bar-On, our Member Success Coach, and Kelly Barth for creating this training for our Members.

Double sales without spending more? Episode 146

Wouldn’t it be amazing to double your sales without having to go out and spend a bunch of money on ads?

Meet Michelle Smith, the founder of https://www.mamasuds.com/

Michelle has grown her business like many of us do. She started at home, and step by step she’s built a solid online business with multi six figure sales, employees, and a great income for her family.
She’s done a lot of things well. But until last year, she’d never implemented Reliable Revenue in her business.
Even though she’s been an Inner Circle member for years, the time wasn’t right.

She was so busy working “in” her business, that she hired some help to look after emailing her list.

In March of 2022, Michelle committed to Reliable Revenue, and started implementing right away. Even though she was worried about sending more emails, she followed the instructions and just “did it”.

And something amazing happened. Within 2 weeks, her sales from the emails she sent paid for her Reliable revenue program fee.

In fact, in March off 2022 Michelle doubled her email sends, and increased her sales from email by 8X.

In April, as we were finishing the course, Michelle doubled her email sends again, and doubled her sales from emails again.

Michelle was incredibly consistent all year, and by November, she had more than doubled her email sends again, and once again doubled her sales from email.

Here’s what else happened:
Even though she’s sending more emails than ever before, Michelle’s open rate and click rates are higher than they were before Reliable Revenue.

Michelle realized that she’s really good at email. In fact she’s really good at marketing her business. So good in fact, that late in 2022, she hired enough help that she’s no longer working “in” her business. Instead, she works “on” her business. And that means she’s finally able to take time away without falling behind in production and shipping.

In a year many business struggled, Mamasuds had it’s best year ever in 2022.

  • The Reliable Revenue send strategy that can double your sales from email.

We all want predictable, Reliable Revenue, right?

When I ask clients what they’d like to change in their business, the answer I hear most often is that they want reliable sales – or sales they can count on every day

I get it. When you don’t have reliable revenue, it’s hard to plan. You’re afraid to spend your cash, because you’re not confident that you’ll earn it back quickly

So you put off investing in inventory, hiring help, and even in your own education because you’re “waiting” to crack the code and finally be able to count on your sales.

When you do have “sales you can count on”, that’s when you have Reliable Revenue.

And suddenly, you have breathing room.

  • You can step back and decide how you’ll grow your business
  • You can invest in Inventory, team, education, salary, even a vacation
  • You get some headspace back – because you’re not doing backflips every month to get sales

The biggest benefit of all is confidence

Confident that you’re on the right track

Confident in your ability to grow your business

Confident that you’re not one bad month away from disaster

When you’re confident – you’re a better manager, and you’ll build your business strategically instead of chasing tactics to get sales.

This is how I like to define Reliable Revenue: It’s when you start getting sales that aren’t a result of any big activity. You don’t always know where each sale came from, and you don’t often recognize the name of the customer, so you go looking to see where the sale came from.

And what you realize is that these sales are the result of the systems you have put in place, and the work you do consistently.

At first, reliable sales start coming in monthly, then weekly, and later it’s daily.

And that’s when everything changes

Even though it might seem hard to set yourself up for RR, I want you to know it’s completely possible. And in fact, you can set yourself up to get RR even when you’re new, and you don’t have it all figured out

So, how do you set it up?
Listen in, I’m going to break it down for you.

Ready to make your Reliable Revenue Plan?

Here’s how you can start:
This month, we’re running an interactive Reliable Revenue Workshop.
Our monthly Workshops are usually for Inner Circle members only, but because this work is so important we are inviting everyone in our audience to work on this with our help.

Here’s what you’ll do in the Workshop:

  • You’ll start by figuring out where you are now. We’ll show you what sales you can expect based on your current data.
  • You’ll set up your sales funnel – and we’ll show you how to monitor it each month

  • You’ll walk away with clarity on how to get predictable, reliable sales,  and you’ll be ready to work on strategies to fill your sales funnel.

Don’t miss your chance to start the year with a plan – you don’t have to reinvent the wheel. You’ll work your plan consistently, and build your sales month over month.

What worked, what didn’t, and what’s exciting for 2023. Episode 144

What worked, what didn’t, and what’s exciting for 2023. Episode 144

2022 brought some big changes for us Ecommerce store owners, and I think it makes sense to start this year off by sharing what’s been working to grow sales, what’s NOT working, and what’s super exciting for Ecommerce store owners in 2023.

I’ve been working in eCommerce for 12 years, and for more than 6 years, I’ve been sharing what’s really working for people like us – we’re entrepreneurs, we don’t have huge budgets, or huge teams – we’re building our businesses on solid foundations – step by step

 

Here’s something that will inspire you:

More of our Inner Circle members are finding success than ever before.

With every year that goes by, we have more and more members who are reaching beyond 6 and 7 figures, paying themselves well – and even creating wealth in their lives by selling their companies.

 

So today I thought it would be valuable to share what I see from inside the Inner Circle.

  • What our members have struggled with this year
  • The tactics that our members are using to grow their sales
  • What’s emerging as the biggest opportunity for us in 2023

 

Grab a pen, and listen in as I share all the details.

I’ll even give you a simple strategy to get a head start on the big opportunity of 2023.

 

Last thing:

As I look back on how the Inner Circle has grown and changed over the years, I’m incredibly grateful to work with our team of Mentors and Coaches. They are successful Ecommerce store owners who use the strategies we teach. They’re on the front lines doing the work.

We’re in a great position to help even more store owners this year.
I want every one of you to get the help you need, so we are inviting our podcast listeners and email subscribers to join us for the Inner Circle training this month.

We’ve never done this before – but this lesson is super  important.

We’re teaching our members how to create predictable, reliable sales every month of the year.

This is a plan everyone can create, no matter what stage your business is at – because you’re going to use your own data to build it.

 

You can get a seat at the live workshop +  the self study version for just $15.

When you join us, you’ll walk away with your own plan for sales you can count on, AND you’ll be clear on the work you need to do to move the needle.

3 things to do this week. Episode 143

This week I’m sharing 3 things to do this week.

You might be relaxing this week, but here’s the good news:

This 3 part exercise can be done in your pajamas AND it will make you more likely to have a successful year in 2023.

Here’s what you’re going to do:

  • You’re going to take a snapshot of where you are in business, right now
  • You’re going to think about exactly where you want to be in business a year from now
  • You’re going to identify the “changes”, and put them in order of priority

And as you do this, you’ll be able to see what you should focus on to get the results you want.

This is an exercise I do every year. It helps me get clear on what I really want, and actually, see where I need to focus so that I reach my goals.

Give it a try. It’s simple and fun. You’ll see what’s possible for you!
