I’m probably not much different than you. My first thought when I accidentally derailed our launch this fall was to take a few weeks and come up with another grand plan to re-launch.
I thought I had to do something big.
And then I realized that what I was really doing was finding a way to procrastinate.
And really, I’m committed to showing you how things really happen. And the reality is that most people don’t have a crazy good launch.
Like me, many of you will just stumble into business, and make it up as you go.
And so, I just started.
I think it’s important to share this, because it’s at this stage that many people get stuck, and start to feel a bit lost.
But here’s what you can do when you feel a bit lost:
You can set a few goals, and then create activities that will get you closer to your goal.
Here’s my 30-Day Goals:
1) Get a min of 3000 web visitors without spending a fortune
2) Grow my email list
3) Get some sales and figure out what’s working for us
You can see what we did, what it cost, and take a look at my Shopify dashboard here:
Here’s the short version:
1) Traffic of 3000 web visitors
→ Total Visitors 3706
→ Free Traffic 1690
→ Paid Traffic = 2016
→ Cost per ULC = .59
→ Attribution Sales = 14
→ Value of Sales = $451
2) Build our email list
→ Total email list 2700
→ Launched The Perfect Giveaway (Inner Circle training)
→ Spent $222.95
→ Paid Leads 587 Cost per lead = .37
→ Sales 9 (this list converted at 1.5%)
→ Value of Sales = $264
3) Get some sales
→ Run a simple email only Black Friday event
→ Spent = $140 on lead generation
→ Leads = 113 cost per lead = $1.24
→ Sales = 7 (this tiny list converted at 6.1%)
→ Value = $163
→ Total BF/CM was 14 orders = $482
Our total sales: $1289
Our total spend was : $1184
So, we basically spent as much as we sold.
We also had wholesale sales of $1944, so we actually made it through the month with a profit.
But here’s what I know… we are setting ourselves up for success.
When I look at the data, I see a number of clues that tell me I’m on the right track.
Next week I’m going to show you what’s working in this business.
I’ll show you how I find the clues in my business, so you can look for them in yours.
Then, we’ll analyze our results and make some good decisions about next steps!

When I started this Journey on the Roadmap to $50K, I envisioned this perfect path I would follow. I even broke it down into a success path so that people could see the progress we made at each stage. It goes like this: I think we did a great job with the foundation...

What is Proof of Concept? Ordered a small quantity of product and created an event to test the viability of the product. The goal is to get in front of an audience of people who should be interested, and to get their response in a bankable way - so we’re looking for...
