#1 Find Out What They Want

Before you find out what they want you’ll need to know WHO they are! If you don’t already know who your ideal client is then CLICK HERE to do this exercise. I cannot stress enough about why this is vital to the success of everything you do.

There are several ways to find out what your tribe wants to hear from you and January is literally the BEST time to be looking! Here are some ideas:

  • Social Media: Right now your prospects are posting all about their desires for 2018. Go through posts, pages, and groups, look at the posts/comments. You’ll see right away what they want for 2018 and learn very quickly what they want. If you can help them with it that’s a great place to start! This is how I knew that sales funnels were a huge thing on a lot of my ideal client’s lists. I thought I wouldn’t need to do more training about this, but learned very quickly that I was wrong.
  • Do a ton of free discovery calls! Get your ideal client and prospects on the phone and literally point blank ask them what they want. Those you talk to may not be interested right then in hiring you right away.  However, they will tell you what they are planning and tell you how you can help.
  • Check out what events are coming up and if your prospects are going. How? Simple! Go on FB and ASK and then look at upcoming events. You’ll be able to see who is going and who is interested.
  • MOST IMPORTANTLY… LISTEN to what your prospects are saying. When you go ask on social media or when you get them on the phone just listen. Listening and not selling to them will help you learn more than you can imagine. They WANT to tell you what they need. It makes them feel better. If you give them a few tips that they can use right away at the same time, all the better! Have them follow up with a testimonial for you.
  • Look at the list of “words” people are posting as their word for 2018. These words can be used for your sales pages, on blog posts, in the names of your services, on your website, and everywhere! Your prospects will be looking for them, thinking about them, and living them on a daily basis.

How Do You Create a Funnel?

Funnels in 2017 and before all were similar to this: Opt-in page | Thank you / Upsell Page | Thank you / Upsell Page | Thank you / Upsell Page. BUT this won’t work any longer because prospects are conditioned to know that this is what you’re doing. They know that your free thing is just the beginning and it’s possible it won’t be worth giving their email away. Here’s what to do instead:

  • Share valuable information on social media via VIDEO, blog, or vlog. I highly suggest this is done on FB LIVE which works the best in my experience. FB is promoting video above everything else, especially live video. Add it to your story so it sends a notification to your followers. Be sure to notify your prospects when you’ll be going live so they can set aside the time and get excited. Remember that if you just go live without notifying people it can take up to 4 minutes for followers to jump on live.
  • It’s important that you get your prospects to follow you (personally and your business page) and get them into a group where you can speak with them. This is true for Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter Lists. You’ll also want them to follow your boards on Pinterest. (Each platform has it’s own way of notifications so determine what your best way is to share your message.)
  • Getting emails is still important! You’ll just have to go about it in a different way. 1) Offer a download to go along with your free training 2) Ask for it when they join your group 3) Invite them to join an email only challenge, etc. Be sure they know that you value their inbox and you will only send them what they want.
  • Invite them to click reply to any of your emails and share their thoughts with you. Let them know that by being on your list they also have access to you. This is super valuable! Don’t reply to PMs, send them to the groups or invite them to join your email list to get answers.
  • Start a membership that is low cost and dump a ton of value there. Share what’s going on in the membership in your group and on social to invite new members. Invite members to invite their friends to join them for accountability. Be sure to offer monthly and annual plans. (More in the video about why)
  • Get them on the phone to share the big value and to get them to hire you or buy your services on the higher level. Once you have shown them that you really know what you’re doing they will want to hire you. They don’t have time to learn your skill, they have to be able to provide their own services. They want to hire you to do it for them!

What’ IN the Funnel?

  • Free training – Suggested done by live video when possible
  • Free group where they can interact with you and others who have worked with you
  • Share loads of value, answer questions, find out more about what they want and how you can help
  • Show them you know what you’re doing by sharing valuable information on social, on your site, and in your membership
  • Ask them to invite their friends
  • Create a course that has everything they want in it and turn it into a membership for residual income
  • Find places to speak and share your message on other people’s platforms
  • Blog posts (including video) *Make your blog posts go VIRAL using THIS tool!
  • Be a guest on podcasts, blogs, radio, FB live, and anywhere your prospects could see you
  • Create or participate in an E-zine
  • Do your own podcast
  • Find sponsorships where you can show your support of other businesses where your prospects hang out
  • Create sponsorships for your business so others can help support what you’re doing

I hope you found these ideas helpful! I’d love to hear from you about how the new sales funnels are working for you.

Here’s my own story of success..

In July of 2017 I sat at my desk with a successful career as a digital marketer and online speaker/trainer. I had started as an entrepreneur in 2011 as a virtual assistant working with real estate agents. From there my skills and my business had grown into something that I truly enjoyed doing. Digital marketing along with branding, websites, sales funnels, and basically flipping online businesses was as thrilling to me as racing around a race track is for Indy drivers. I had found a bit of success. Yet…

As I sat there at my desk thinking over the last 5 years it hit me! I had basically created a job for myself. I was my boss and my boss didn’t give me any vacation time and if I wasn’t working I wasn’t getting paid. The name of my business was my name and if I wanted to retire… well, let’s just say that wasn’t going to happen.

Was this what success felt like?

This realization made me step back and take a 30,000-foot view of my business and my life. This is something I do in my own business every quarter and something I have all of my clients do as well.

“Success grows with you and you grow with Success!” – Sheila J Davis

It was true that I had worked with and helped thousands of virtual assistants build their businesses through my academy. I found true joy in working with them.

I loved my clients and enjoyed flipping their businesses. Working with them to create a powerful brand, improving or building their websites for increased revenue, showing them how to automate their business and creating sales funnels that are powerful and effective.

 

Somehow I felt empty.

Something was missing. It wasn’t just about money, it was about the impact and influence I had on the world. On the women specifically that I felt needed my help to achieve their success.

“If your bucket is empty, and there is a hole at the bottom, it’s time for change.” – Sheila J Davis

I knew something had to change, I just had no idea how fast and how amazing the process would be!

 

Time For a Mentor!

Over the next two months, I went on a journey to find where my success was and how to reach it. I worked with a brilliant and amazing mentor, Brooks Gibbs. He can tell you that my journey to find what success was to me was painful and incredible at the same time.

What Brooks helped me realize was that my passion to help and serve single women, military wives, and women who found themselves in a situation of, “Oh Crap! Now what?!” was possible!

Thanks to his guidance, patience, and willingness to help me serve my purpose in life I had discovered what success was to me! It was creating a network where women could find trusted resources, build relationships, network with each other, and even where I could create a non-profit to provide even more.

Truth be told, we have only just started and we have a long way to go. There is so much more! I’m thrilled, however, that my journey has lead me to where I am today!

 

YES! Women’s Network was born!

 

OFFICIAL LAUNCH!

For our official launch, we are having an online summit that 7 months ago I didn’t think was possible! After taking October through part of February off basically due to health and life happening, we are thrilled to have created such an amazing launch!

With my two fantastic new partners, Julie May (COO & Event Planner) and Leisa Watkins (Partner & Marketing Strategist) and the help of our amazing team Tracy Medeiros (Project Manager), Melania Macias (Administrative Support Specialist), and Cindy Cloninger (Graphic Designer and Virtual Assistant), the network is ready to officially launch and change the world!

We don’t want you to go through the same mistakes and setbacks they experienced and learned from.  They can teach you strategies and tweaks, that when properly applied, can make all the difference.

You’ll find a collaborative learning platform where you have access to more than 50,000 business books and videos. Within the group, you’ll find content recommendations, see what your peers are learning about and more.

This is an open space for women who want to learn, collaborate and share ideas, suggestions, and knowledge. Talk to amongst yourselves and share knowledge! Come join us and find loads of valuable learning opportunities!

Here’s a quick walkthrough with our contact Christian at Blue Bottle. He was kind enough to show us how it works and what you get access to. This is so exciting! The only way to have access to all of this goodness is through a partner like YES! We are pleased to be able to share this with all of our members! (Yep, the free silver members get access too!)

If you want to learn a new skill the most efficient ways to gain that knowledge or experience are 1) get an instructor who can teach you or 2) work with an industry professional and gain experience as an intern.

Decide which method you prefer, outline your plan, then take the necessary steps to achieve that goal. Just a reminder – before investing your time or money, be sure your future mentor, coach, or trainer’s reputation support his/her claims for success.

Do your research before committing to any partnerships. You’re going to work with this person and good communication is helpful. Even if you value her experience, make sure you are comfortable with your interaction beforehand.

The world wide web is a ready resource, but at times it can have the effect of a double-edged sword. On the one hand, you can locate information about most businesses through this online library. By the same token, any “wanna be” coach, or mentor can simply launch a new practice or sell a program without experience by quickly creating a website and marketing her “system”.

Don’t get me wrong, we all start somewhere. But if your future coach can point to her experience and positive results, it builds credibility and makes your decision to say Yes or No much easier.

Yes! Women's Network

Experience builds credibility

 

If the former students of your prospective coach share their positive experiences and outcomes because of her help that further enhances her reputation.

Wondering how to choose a teacher or mentor?

Do your research!
Look for satisfied clients or students before blindly handing over your credit card number. Check out the testimonials on her website. Someone who shares glowing feedback knows, likes and trusts this service provider. You can learn more about her experience and reputation through her current and former clients.

If you’re now convinced she is the right person for you, take the leap and connect with your prospective mentor. But, if there’s still some hesitation, take this next step and…

Do more research!!
Search for people who have shared words of praise about this expert. You can continue making discoveries by visiting their websites. If your prospective coach, mentor or teacher has made a significant impact on this entrepreneur’s business, you may see references to her and links back to her program. If you see this type of “social proof” you’ve probably found a winner!

So remember to:

Do your research!
Spend the necessary time to investigate before investing your time or money.

Do more research!!
Keep exploring until you get answers to your questions.

Wanting to grow and learn is both admirable and natural. But remember to give yourself enough time to investigate up-front so you can save yourself from future regret on the back-end.

Are you searching for a safe place to learn, grow and hang out with other women online?

The Yes! Women’s Network was created with that goal in mind.

See who’s there now.

In the words of Dr. Spock, “Live long and prosper!”

See you soon…
