When I ran into Marisa, I was an experiential education teacher for 25 years with no idea how to create an experience online. I had finally found someone who could lead the way to the type of program I knew I wanted to create.

The quick and simple wins gave me the confidence to stick with it even when life got super busy. Or I felt like a loser. Or I compared myself to Marisa.

On the outside, it gave my tribe of followers from all over the world, a reason to engage with me on a new level. I already did FB livestreams but didn't have a way to really work with the women who were following my videos. It felt helpless.

Through the process, I recognized that a good program starts with good marketing. I know my process of helping women clear up their triggers and find a more balanced perspective was really needed, but without knowing how to help women join and stay with the process, I felt stuck.

I felt inspired to get outside my comfort zone and finish the process. I mainly used my fb livestreams which directed women to set up one on one calls. Those were new for me and very scary. As a massage therapist, I work much better in person and convincing people to join the process using my bodywork and how good it makes them feel.

I got it done! And I'm already looking forward to applying the lessons I've learned to the next version of my online coaching program. This process let me touch more women, create many current and future clients and feel confident promoting what I know!

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
How to feel good about offering an online program.

How did EPM help you become successful?
Gave me the training and validation I needed to get started.
How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
Many more connections and more confidence in marketing.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
Before I was hit or miss with how much I communicated with my audience...Now I livestream every day, send out emails every day and have lots of great touch points with the women who love what I do…

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
The next time I create one :)

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thank you. You did an amazing job making this process very do-able.

Your Graduation Story
This has been a story of ups and downs!
I already had already set up a beta test of a course designed to support new or aspiring yoga teachers to understand what to do to build a really successful, thriving and steady income from teaching yoga - as I have already done. I had this bigger vision - that if I could help other yoga teachers build successful businesses and communities from their teaching, then indirectly I would have impacted more people in the world to the benefits of yoga.
Whilst other programmes out there focus on developing online yoga businesses, I felt passionately that, for most new teachers with little marketing experience this was learning to run before they could walk.
When that beta programme sold reasonably easily (for $97 and $197) I thought I could scale it up/increase price to $397 and make it evergreen.
It failed miserably!
Enter EPM!
EPM has:
* Made me really dig down more into my message .
* Opened up the concept of experiencifying my content - because the truth is - even at that low price - of the 15 students who bought only 3 finished it and gave a testimonial.
* Helped me understand a process for outlining an improved version of the programme which I can and will sell at a higher price.
* Helped me realise I was trying to scale too early - as Marisa said on a coaching call - I had beginners luck. I DO know my target market reasonably well - and the initial strategy of offering for free if they could listen live was a good draw - and helped to create an easy upsell - BUT I knew the training was worth more than that - I'm literally helping yoga teachers make anything between $500 and $5000 a month teaching no more than 9 classes a week! charging $197 or even $397 for that does seem generous! Especially when yoga teachers spend over $3000 usually for their yoga teacher training - which doesn't help them make money at all!!
* I worked through the first trainings really well - because I knew I was travelling over the whole Xmas and new year period and that things would get tough in terms of keeping up - and it was hard.
* Marisa's mindset stuff is absolutely priceless - feeling the marketing mindfuck like crazy....and struggled trying to overhaul the whole programme - took far longer than I thought - even the planning stage - I've genuinely tried not to design the whole thing - just the birds eye view - but even that took a long time . But those last trainings were just what I needed to hear - and I've realised I need to cut myself some slack - it's not that I don't take action - I do - but sometimes I push myself too hard - and it did get on top of me.
* I spent a LOT of time in the marketing/prep for launch weeks trying to create a launch for the sale of the old programme and creating noise/interest for the new programme.
That took a lot of energy/focus away from launching the new product - perhaps a bad idea - and whilst I got some engagement from the e-mail campaign - and some interest - no-one bought from the sale.
That sent me on a nose dive down...and then struggled to sort the new launch whilst I had all the work for January teaching in the off line side of my business...totally lost momentum and clarity about what to do next.

I wanted to come to LYM live very much - but couldn't justify it when I hadn't recovered the investment - and I understood this was how to build on what we've done here - and mine isn't ready yet! Need to focus on that before I move on I guess...

My biggest struggles?
* Planning the new product overview - just took a lot more time than I thought - maybe I'm overthinking it...
* Organising the mammoth amount of work needed for the e-mail campaign for the sale - which didn't work!!
* Overcoming pricing mindset issues - and how best to deliver a more premium priced programme
* Did feel it all got a bit overwhelming towards the end.only just picking myself up ready to pick it back up...

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Soooo many - impossible to narrow down to one but these stick with me in particular:
1) Getting started versus forever choices - such a helpful mindset mantra when I'm trying to make a decision!
2) Keeping it simple - realising I was trying to scale FAR too quickly - when I hadn't really mastered 1 -1 or even 1 to few. That's where I need to focus.
3) The realisation that Seeing how Marisa teaches - that's how I want my students to feel - the whole experiencify model is a model I want to emulate.

How did EPM help you become successful?
Don't feel successful - yet - but this has re-invigorated my desire to create something that really helps people and helps me reach my own personal mission - to reach thousands of people with the benefits of yoga through helping other yoga teachers teach!.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
Had lost mojo and sense of direction pre EPM. EPM has re-invigorated this.

What has been the biggest change in your business?
The direction I'm taking - aiming for higher priced programmes with more support for my students.

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
Making my first high offer sale!

Hi! I love seeing the latest wins that many of you are having as a result of EPM. I just thought I'd share one of my recent wins which is that I was interviewed by a leader in the gamification of learning space for the Gamification Talk Radio podcast.

I'm sharing how we rocketed engagement of a course in the most unlikely of places - a law firm - and had tremendous success. The interview is a lead-up to Gamicon in October. Have a listen.

I always thought that an online or coaching business was made up of hundreds of people and that if you didnt have a big long list of clients and email addresses you couldnt have a business. I am tired of running a regular brick and mortar business and wanted to transition into a different more flexible type of business where I could use my 29 years of design experience and really help other designers! My biggest shift is my realization that a pretty nice business can be built up with a small group...a few at a time. This can be pretty lucrative, too. I hadnt realized that! I have not gotten to mission accomplished yet..but i believe I will get there shortly Without Marisa's tutelage and incredible information and practical tips I never would have gotten anything off the ground. I believe I will be very successful and help many people in the process. That excites me very much! Thank you so much for everything!

Upon graduation in June 2016, I was due to hang my shingle and did. Well, sort of. I tried to explain my services to potential clients. Mostly their eyes glazed over, furrows appeared between their brows, and the conversation essentially stopped. Or I was met with great resistance about how they were perfectly fine without any of my offerings. My message was flat.
The few clients that I managed to recruit and take through my coaching experienced results but I had little idea how to reach out to others or scale any of my services. I was definitely failing to create more interest. I read articles and books, listened to podcasts, took courses and still nothing moved the needle. I was simply building knowledge but I had no idea how to implement it in a strategic, progressive manner.

When I heard Marisa's Experience Product masterclass mission to design and market my coaching services in a way that would land for people. In a way that was really going to market for me and create the message I was so longing to get out to deliver, I was definitely in for the challenge.

I joined EPM mid week and set about the first module that very weekend. When my husband and I reviewed what I had written, we both agreed it was more effective than anything I had written in the last year! Imagine that, a couple of hours of presentation, a few exercises and voila, I had more in front of me than the hours, days and whole year I had spent working on it before!

As the course went on, I kept improving and clarifying my own voice and chosen product. EPM over delivered in comparison to any other course I had taken before: organization, exercises from simple to complex, direct coaching time, and education and support with the tech tools to deliver both the message and the product.
Today, I feel much more confident on not only how to describe what services I provide and how to deliver them effectively but also how I can grow my business with additional programs. The skills I learned in EPM, I can repeat, improve, be creative with, and never struggle as I was before. With EPM, I have reaped the benefits of all of Marisa's hard work on how to excel in delivery of one's services and how to make more impact in my client's lives and in my own business. Well done LYM, thank you!

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
This one is a toughie to answer - so many things really, understanding and writing copy, more tech knowledge, the coaching calls, the authenticity and caring in the community. I suppose the biggest one might be that there is a way to change the thud factor and how to do it. By having us experience the experience framework was definitely metta.

How did EPM help you become successful?
EPM was the best structure I have seen in any online course. I was able to quickly and clearly know what action was needed each week. Even down to how the videos and files were named, somehow no one has seemed to ever get that right! It specifically introduced me to what to do about creating an experience course because I knew the thud factor all too well. It helped me get over my perfectionist streak and start implementing the changes needed to my business. It also gave me the confidence to start with what I had and not wait until the entire marketing funnel and material was created, as in years from now knowing me! The amount of coaching time was definitely key. I want to keep the above comments but when reviewing this form, I believe I should say that is how it helped me become successful. I learned so much from the coaching calls - all of them.

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
EPM has give me the confidence I needed to become more visible and truly deliver a unique experience for my clients. The success of chatterbox impacted my bottom line and my ability to pursue further progression with my business dream. Plus it has connected me with several terrific individuals committed to their own dreams!

What has been the biggest change in your business?
I understand the online space much more clearly now than ever before. It has healed any online course PTSD! As I look to improve my life, my business and the lives of others, I know now how to identify and make possible those changes through a variety of skillful experience tactics. My marketing was woeful before EPM, I did not understand copy at all and how to create different kinds of campaigns. I read it online, I saw it on webpages, but I had no idea how to articulate my own. EPM took me, step by step, through simple yet a masterful process, to create copy. Copy for my discovery call page, my sales page, in emails, while on sales calls, when simply just chatting to the person in the supermarket. Now I can communicate my coaching business and how it applies to people's problems with clarity and confidence!

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
That I can repeat the product I created, expand the product, apply the course to another idea and so on! I also think it's great that people will begin to see such a positive impact on their lives through experience programs rather than simply consuming another piece of information that gathers dust but doesn't make a difference in the world. It's time to change that and I am part of that momentum, awesome!

Is there anything else you would like to add?
Thanks again for curing any online course PTSD! Like many here, so many courses have been purchased and completed only to be left with a feeling of disappointment in delivery. I am happy to say it was a worthwhile investment through and through, thank you for you and your team's hard work and efforts.

Your Graduation Story
What an amazing roller coaster ride. EPM Live was a blast. I jumped in a few days after the official cart closing. I LOVE the Experience Product concept and I am convinced - even more now after EPM ended - that this is one one the key factors if you yearn to deliver an experience to your clients that empowers them to really achieve the transformation they need and also if you want to stand out of your competition.

Te stellar learning materials and the amazing coaching (and the high accountability and commitment) - ahh and the momentum of this amazing crowd - helped me to create a new product idea, a sales page, a sales email campaign, and other marketing campaigns in a very short amount of time. I would never had achieved so much without this program.

I haven't yet achieved my goal of selling my new program. I realized too late that my first stack of 3 campaigns wasn't working out as expected. When I realized this I haven't had enough energy left to do the proper pivot, and also couldn't do the last necessary steps (like reaching out even more to people) because of the energy drain.

Yet, I do feel that I had success! I achieved so much. I grew so much. I expanded my comfort zone. I met amazing people (coaches, and other students). I was able to fight mental success blocks. And now I have so much more knowing of how to create Experience Products - and market them.

AND I know that my financial success is just waiting around the corner. Just one iteration to awesomeness, just one expansion of the comfort zone (e.g. to making sales calls).

Thank you Marisa, Samara, Live Your Message team for this amazing ride. I'm so thrilled I want more ... :)

What is your biggest takeaway from EPM?
Making faster decisions really is better than waiting for the "perfect" one because the moment you've made (and submitted) the decision a new (internal) process starts that could not if you postpone the decision.

How did EPM help you become successful?
the training materials are stellar and fun (I've always looked forward to the delivery dates), DEADLINES are goldt for commitment and getting things done!, the wednesday group coaching calls, the opportunity to get Marisa's 1:1 coaching for 10 min where helping me shift and pivot in the right direction faster than ever expected, having a clear roadmap, having the two tracks (lessens overwhelm), the online training environment is leading-edge and super motivating

How has EPM and your success impacted your life?
lesser sleep? :D and I feel more self-confident (was high before but now even more)

What has been the biggest change in your business?
doing marketing more and more consistently, having more clarity on what I do and want to offer

What are you most excited about moving forward with your Experience Product?
to finally help people doing it (when next launch is financially successful

ust wanted to let you know I love the “sale superhero enrollment conversation“ script. I am getting so much better response than I’ve ever had from sales conversations about my current program when I use it every time. Thank you! Dollar figures on sales is pending. But we are talking tens of thousands of dollars.

Also, Marisa, the paradigm of describing the steps in terms of the benefits people get up and not the process is also transforming conversations I’m having with my prospects. I can hardly wait to overhaul my marketing materials about my current program as well as create for my new one.

This weeks content is what I’ve been waiting for and I couldn’t be more excited! Furthermore I am absolutely noticing the power of the experience you are creating for me, and loving every minute of it.
