I was listening to one of my mentors Rob Moore from the UK and he uses this as his strap line and at first I was thinking nice strap line it really flows. But then I sat back and thought he’s right if we just sit and watch from the sidelines nothing is going to change. We might spend money on courses and training but until we commit ourselves to actually implementing what we learn knowledge is pretty much wasted. But until we take that plunge send that email, make that call, pay for that appointment setter or designer we don’t achieve anything. So if you were to start from day one of your business journey what would be the biggest risk you’d take now that you didn’t take then? Mine would be is to keep on going in one direction and exhaust that before moving on. I look back on the number of times I have been tempted and changed direction because in my head there has been that little voice saying “what if this doesn’t work let’s set up a plan B”
~ For those who have been following my content advice in this community you probably saw my last post that shows you how to essentially make any viewer glued to your content in 3 pretty simple steps. This was one of my top performing posts and got a huge surge of engagement and positive feedback across all the platforms I posted it on. Here’s where I lied… Not a single word from the advice I posted was mine and was completed generated from Chat GPT! HOW CRAZY IS THAT?!?! I did this to show everyone how powerful A.I. models are especially if you know how to use it properly. So for the past 7 years I have been able to get creators over 8 Million followers combined & accumulated over 1.3 Billion views by showing them the correct strategies and systems to scale their content. One of these systems is using AI to systemize and scale all your content effectively. In my next post I will show you exactly everything you need to master AI LITERALLY EVERYTHING I'm not holding back. So make sure to follow me and stay up to do!

I am a passionate advocate for sustainable business growth. Virtually no company operating on this planet is fully sustainable. In this community, the emphasis is on economic success, as it should be for a business. But I also believe that this success should not come at the expense of sustaining life on Earth. I don't see any conflict between these two objectives, economic growth, and growing the things that support life on Earth. Unfortunately, for almost all businesses, this is not yet a truism. Most businesses have unintended and unsustainable consequences from conducting their business and that's also true in the contentpreneurship world and in e-commerce generally. I was the opening keynote speaker at an industry trade association Sustainability Summit yesterday. I was pleasantly surprised to get several conference attendees to take the time to seek me out in a break and compliment me on my presentation. I think we deserve to occasionally give ourselves a pat on the back for a job well done. As solopreneurs, we don't always get this encouragement to soldier on and make a positive difference in the world. So, my message today is to believe in the power of your content, and your message. Keep pushing on.

I was reading an article yesterday in which it asked “does scarcity increase sales when selling services?”. I was thinking about this and I came to the conclusion that provided the use of scarcity is genuine then it’s probably not only effective but also easy to implement. There are a number of ways that we can help use scarcity when it comes to selling our services. WE CAN ONLY TAKE ON A LIMITED NUMBER The one method I feel will be most effective is that because we sell individualised services we can realistically only hope to service a limited number of clients in any one month (especially if we are offering bespoke products) So the approach I am using is that we can only take on a limited number of new clients and we will be adding people to a waiting lists once we have our monthly quota. If I was selling something like a course or coaching program I would probably use bonuses as an incentive for people to take more immediate action. However when you do this you have to stick to your guns and don’t make any exceptions. The WIGIG strategy (when it’s gone it’s gone ) only works if you stick with it! If you feel compelled to continue an offer you can swap out bonuses but never be tempted to give people who missed your deadline the exact same package. If you do your credibility will be compromised and no one will trust your next scarcity ploy! I’d love to know what works for you selling your services plus what are your views on the use of scarcity as a way of getting people to take action?

~ Here’s The 3 Steps You Need To Take: ⬇️ ~ - Engaging Content from the Start: 1️⃣ - Hook your viewers within the first 10-15 seconds of the video. Use an intriguing question, a teaser of what's to come, or a visually captivating scene to grab their attention. - Introduce yourself and the purpose of the video early on, so viewers understand what to expect. - Maintain a clear and engaging narrative throughout the video to keep viewers interested. Quality Production and Editing: 2️⃣ - Ensure your video and audio quality is top-notch. Poor production quality can turn viewers away quickly. - Edit your videos to remove unnecessary pauses, long silences, or repetitive content. Keep the pacing engaging. - Use graphics, animations, and overlays to enhance the visual appeal and keep viewers visually engaged. - Interactive and Value-Driven Content: 3️⃣ - Encourage viewer interaction through questions, polls, or calls to action. Ask them to subscribe, like, or leave comments. - Provide value to your viewers by delivering informative, entertaining, or educational content that fulfills their expectations. - Keep an eye on your video analytics to identify drop-off points and work on improving those sections.
I'm from South Africa 🦁, but I live in New Zealand 🐑. My biggest strength is analysis and my biggest weakness is paralysis-by-analysis (took me 30 mins to write this post). I'm the owner of Profit on Point and the creator of Cash Flow Masters - we're in the finance niche. My favourite content platform is Youtube (although I feel like I should say Linkedin). I need immediate help with growing an audience. As a introverted bean counter, this does not come naturally.

You are doubtless an expert on your product or service But somebody who is an expert of the marketplace they serve is going to have 1000 times more credibility. So quickly work out what your ideal market place is, what are the major issues that affect it, and the essential things you need to know above and beyond your own product/service. When relating your service to your market don’t just be tempted to just give them your sales pitch. They on the whole don’t care about you or your service !! Almost without exception it is better to showcase your ability to solve their problems not try to sell your service or product. One really great method of selling a product to a warmed prospect is to create a story that details the negatives of not using your service and build on that "fear factor". Make sure firstly you do it with integrity and secondly, you actually have a genuine solution to the problem they highlight to you. By alleviating the clients concerns to their fears they feel the relief of having someone solve their problems for them. If they are already problem aware and you have the solution then you are providing a needed service or product to your client. They will appreciate your service provides them relief and actually welcome your contact. The questions you ask your client to determine what concerns they have and will give you an insight into how to frame your offer and services initially. Most clients are less interested in the how you deliver the service and more interested in the result they can experience from it. When you establish what would be a significant concern to your prospective clients and solve that your worry you will find people actively seeking your solution.
~ What is the best way to structure a script that does the following? ~ 1- Strategically hooks the audience in without sounding pushy or desperate 2- Retains the audience to watch the entirety of the video 3- And finally converts a high percentage of the audience to actually stick around and follow you ~ After analyzing countless hours of videos and doing deep dives into their structure I found the perfect formula that works for me. ~ Here Are The Steps You Need To Follow: ⬇️ 1- Hook- The hooks job is to breed curiosity into the viewer. An effective way of doing this is asking a question your target audience wants to know the answer to. Fitness Example: How you can eat any food you want without gaining weight? Another way is to create a list that addresses your target markets desire. Creator Example: Here are 3 ways to edit your videos for maximum viewer retention ——————————————————————- 2-Retain- Retention is not only to keep the audience watching but at its root should educate, entertain or inspire the audience based on which style you’re choosing.

I've had the best time learning this way of sales compared to everything else I've tried to learn where it's this weird game of 'close or be closed' The new sales model method uses what they call NEPQ - Neuro Emotional Persuasive Questioning so that if their is a sale to be made it is the client that handles their own objections, eliminates sales pressure and the close or be closed mentality of sales. Helpful guidelines • Don't assume you can help them • Eliminate sales resistance. You handling objections is less effective then the client handling their own objections • Ask impactful questions: Do you know what you are looking for? What do you feel is holding you back from achieving (goal)? Why is (that goal) important? What if you don't accomplish (goal)? What if you did nothing? • 5% of the call should be about the solution • Learn their situation • Try to bring up objections before the end of the call. Bringing it up at the end adds much more pressure for everyone • If you feel uncomfortable then so do they • Don't tell them the answers on the discovery call. They don't believe you and/or they wouldn't know how to be effective with the information anyway. Instead ask them if they think your solution would be helpful. And why or why not? Hope you found something helpful in this post! I know I enjoyed this process much more than any other sales process. Let me know if this helps you 😃
In the fast-paced world of high ticket closing, where big deals and lots of money are on the line, having the right skills and qualities is super important for success. High ticket closers are like the secret heroes who make deals happen. To be really good at this job, you need a special mix of abilities that go beyond just selling stuff. Let's talk about the important skills and traits that can help you become a top-notch high ticket closer. 1. Great at Talking: Talking is a big part of high ticket closing. You need to speak well, be persuasive, and listen carefully. You have to explain things clearly, connect with clients, and understand what they want. It's not just about the words you say but also how you say them and how well you listen. This builds trust and helps you understand people better. 2. Persuasion Pro: Persuasion is like an art, and high ticket closers are the artists. You have to be really good at convincing people to make big investments. To do this, you need to know how to handle objections, address concerns, and show how the product benefits the client's goals. Being persuasive is important, but it's crucial not to pressure or trick people. 3. Tough and Never Giving Up: High ticket closing can be tough. Sometimes, deals won't go your way, and people might say no. You have to be strong and stay positive even when things are hard. Being tough and not giving up is how you bounce back from challenges and keep going. 4. Understanding Others' Feelings: It's really important to understand how people feel and what they need. This helps you connect with them and sell them things they really want. 5. Knowing Your Stuff: You need to know a lot about what you're selling and the industry it's in. Being an expert makes people trust you more. 6. Solving Problems: Sometimes, you'll face problems when trying to close a deal. You need to be good at finding solutions and fixing things that come up. 7. Doing the Right Thing: You should always do what's right and fair. Be honest and make sure you're helping people instead of taking advantage of them.
In the world of sales, high-ticket items hold a special allure. These are the premium products and services that come with a substantial price tag, often requiring a significant investment from potential buyers. Understanding the psychology behind high-ticket sales is key to successfully closing these lucrative deals. 1. Understanding Customer Motivations To master high-ticket sales, it's crucial to comprehend the underlying motivations that drive potential buyers to invest in premium offerings. Here are some key motivators: a. Value Perception High-ticket buyers are willing to pay a premium when they perceive exceptional value in a product or service. They seek quality, exclusivity, and the promise of solving significant problems or fulfilling their desires. b. Status and Prestige For some, owning high-ticket items is a status symbol. The psychological reward of being associated with luxury and prestige can be a powerful motivator. c. Investment and ROI Many high-ticket purchasers view their investment as an opportunity to gain substantial returns, either financially or through personal growth and development. d. Emotional Connection Emotions play a significant role in high-ticket purchases. Successful sales professionals understand how to tap into these emotions, creating a connection that goes beyond the transaction. 2. Addressing Objections Effectively High-ticket sales often involve overcoming more objections than lower-priced items. Common objections include cost, risk, and skepticism. Here's how to address them: a. Cost Objection When potential buyers balk at the high price, it's essential to emphasize the long-term value and benefits they will receive. Highlight how the investment outweighs the initial cost. b. Risk Aversion High-ticket buyers are often risk-averse. To overcome this, provide testimonials, case studies, and guarantees that mitigate perceived risks. Demonstrating a track record of success can instill confidence. c. Skepticism Skepticism can be a natural response to high-ticket offers. Build trust by providing transparent information, addressing concerns openly, and offering to answer any questions.
It requires a lot of investment to get a new client in any business. Client acquisition of new clients has probably never been harder and advertising costs are likely to cripple some businesses (don't let that be you or your clients). Counteract this expense by selling more to your existing customers. All you need to do to be able to sell more to existing clients is to nurture them before, during, and after the initial sale. It cost far less to add more tiers, products & services and sell these to your existing clients than it does to find new customers because, with an existing customer, you have already incurred the initial acquisition cost. This cost can be covered in most cases with additional upsells at the initial point of the original sale. When you have the right systems in place to continually nurture your existing customers, you can not only make upsells at the point of the initial sale but also by following up and making future sales. You have done the hard work initially to win over your customer's trust and faith in your company, provided you continue to serve them well a good percentage of customers periodically will continue to buy from you over many years. We call this the lifetime value of the customer or LTV. A backend sale is an easy sale to make because you have won your client's confidence. So selling them more additional products provided they precede or complement the initial sale is just providing excellent customer service. Let's imagine a customer buys a camera it would be very bad service not to remind the customer they might need spare batteries, memory cards, lenses, tripod, and bags and that's just at the point of sale. Imagine over time you build a relationship with this customer you might offer them training, webinars, books, courses, and much more. All these products and services are possibilities even if you don't stock the product yourself. You could either sell another company's product as an affiliate or alternatively you might use these additional products as part of an upgrade bundle add-on service.
Top marketers know one thing that so many less experienced seem to ignore or just never knew. These are two of many reasons why you should have a value stack of products and services. In other words more things you can sell to your client ideally at a time when they are in buying mode which is either at the time they purchase initially or when they are experiencing the results of your product or service. 1) You can invest more money to acquire a new client. Knowing that you have a good back-end sales system in place. If your profit on the initial sale only covers customer acquisition cost (or in some cases loss-making) a robust backend you can make the customer hugely profitable over time.

If you're new here, you're level 1. Level 1 = procrastinator. Level 1 = no course access. To level up, and access course materials, you'll need points. To get points, make posts and comment on posts. When someone else gives you a thumbs up, you get a point. Getting to level 2 requires 5 points. Once you're level 2, you can access all of the course materials. The higher in levels you become, the more course materials you will be able to access.
Hey, Skoolers! I’m Alex and You all are not going to believe this, but I just pulled off the heist of the century. I’m talking Ocean’s Eleven level of genius. 🎲 Except, instead of robbing a casino, I robbed a Skool group. And instead of splitting the loot with a bunch of handsome actors, I kept it all for My Client. Don’t worry, it was all legal and ethical. 😉 But it was also insanely profitable. How profitable? Try $7.2K a month profitable. 💰 Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not. And I’m going to prove it to you. But first, let me tell you how it all began. It was a dark and stormy night… ⛈️ Just kidding. It was a sunny and pleasant afternoon. ☀️ I was browsing through Skool, looking for some new groups to join. That’s me. I’m always on the hunt for new opportunities and connections. 🕵️♂️ Anyway, I stumbled upon this group that caught my eye. It had a catchy name, a hot topic, and a decent number of members. It was about something I was passionate about and knew a lot about. I wish I could tell you what it was, but it’s top secret. But let’s just say it was something that a lot of people struggle with and are willing to pay Big Bucks for. You get the idea. So, I clicked on the join button and waited for approval. A few minutes later, I got in. But here’s where things got interesting - this gem of a group was a ghost town! It had all the vibe of a Monday morning meeting - silence so profound I could hear whispers of my name "Alexxxxx" Picture this: no one chatting, no one reacting, Just pure silence. I half-expected zombies to pop out! (Remember that Walking Dead episode when Rick Grimes woke up in the hospital? Yeah, it was that level of creepy.) But beneath that eerie silence, I sensed potential. I could feel it in my gut, like my sixth sense kicking in. So, I did what any copywriting maverick would do I slid into the group owner’s DMs, offering my help. At first, he was skeptical… He didn’t know who I was or what I wanted from him.

Every man knows that being short on cash (or crypto) is one of the worst feelings in the world. I cannot speak for women, but for men, being poor makes us feel weak. Incapable. Unable to travel the world. Unable to provide for our loved ones. On the other hand... As a man having fat stacks of cash/crypto is a beautiful thing. Cash makes us feel powerful and boosts testosterone... Let's us travel the world... Let's us live in a nice house in a safe neighbourhood... Let's us be the provider we were put here to be. Let's us feel certain about our future. So how do you stack cash in 2023? Simple. Get people to give you cash to you in exchange for a digital product or service. It's called 'Commerce'. ALERT: They purposefully do not teach Commerce in school because they need you to be poor to be a slave. And factories (big companies) need slaves. But if you can get people to give you money, you will have all the money you need, and will never need to work for anyone ever again. $10,000/month? No problem. I'm averaging $45,000/month, purely organically. Look: the only people with no money are the people who don't have people giving it to them... So how do you get people to give you money? I like to use something called the 'Freebie Funnel Method'. I create & then give away helpful free stuff on social media in exchange for an email. Once I collect an email, I email that person/follow up with them on social media with more content and more free stuff until they feel like working with me/buying my stuff. It's too simple. So... Most people complicate it. Especially beginners :( But the pros keep it simple. And the reason it works so well is because humans have a hard time saying "no thanks" to genuinely helpful free stuff that helps them eliminate their problems. And everyone has problems. Most people are: - Alone and looking to be in love. - Broke and looking to be rich. - Fat and looking to be fit. - In pain and looking to be out of pain.
