Perhaps you can relate to these recent applicant success stories.
Like so many people out there, this client had spent a fortune on masterminds that didn’t deliver on their promises. Worse, she had paid a hefty 5-figure fee to a marketing consultant who did not complete the work despite being granted deadline extensions totaling 5 months.
This client has an awesome signature program with a great track record, but no comprehensive digital marketing strategy, support or campaign plan to consistently generate leads, qualify prospects and drive sales. Her challenge? Creating increasing, consistent demand for services.
After the digital marketing review, she had 119 recommendations to consider designed to create marketing momentum to help her be seen, heard and found, a 90-day plan identifying what to focus on first, and an annual marketing and promotion campaign calendar to work with to guide implementation. She’s been adding new clients consistently with much less effort every week and has added multiple additional team members to meet demand!
This man dreamed of making a major impact by changing the lives of children around the world. He’d created several successful small-scale local initiatives and had written a book (but didn’t know how to sell it) and wanted a wider stage for spreading his message of hope and unlimited possibility for all (but didn’t know how to work with the media). Like many, he had a limited budget, had tried a lot of ways to move his ideas forward (that weren’t working out) and didn’t know where to go or what to do next without losing everything. By narrowing his focus, building strategic relationships, and concentrating on the right things he was able to succeed beyond his wildest dreams in <1 year!
The due diligence review revealed she had a new (and viable) business idea, an old website, no significant social media following, a terrible webinar, sales and marketing funnels that didn’t convert, a stale brand and a history of wasting heaps of money on poo-rus and others who delivered very little useful to growing her business. And every month she was paying for tools and applications she simply didn’t need.
Today, 18 months later, she has an awesome brand, two signature programs (one that delivered 6-figures in revenue last year and another solidly positioned to deliver 7-figures this year), a growing social media presence, an expert sales team and the right strategic partners in place to help keep her business moving forward. She is currently streamlining her martech stack and is well-positioned for exponential growth year after year. And she’s not the only one.
