Yesterday I had an awesome "I nailed it!" moment. I made my first or second sale. #mmm I'm creating a losing weight program for EPM. I had other products but this, adapted from the first idea of mixing aerial yoga and weight loss, was the only one respecting all the criteria (others failed on the 10000 people interested). My other products were web design and offices to rent. Also, I tend to stay as local as possible (personal values).
I created two surveys, one about weight loss and a second one more general about well being. I paid one month of Typeform to integrate it will Mailchimp and also paid 10€ to advertise it locally on Facebook. I had a total of 102 answers from this, 50 to one survey and 52 to the other. Then I decided to ask people I know to share among people they know. I got 10 more answers to each survey. Not much. But this is where the MAGIC HAPPENS.
Three persons contacted me to check out the offices. I think one is coming with a nice project and she's sharing it among her students (professionals and non-professionals). The second person contacting me is coming! I presented my project SO WELL, it a clear speech, objectives, the perfect marketing talk. Really, I couldn't believe how naturally it all came to me.
I'm selling one product that I'm not even developing here with EPM thanks to my experience product. I asked my fabulous coach Mike Inchalik to develop three EPs in the beginning. He told me it would be ok as long as I'd stick to only one if things got too hard. I dropped two one week after. But now EPM is working for everything. It's pure magic.
I got so pumped with this and then being again in the leader board that I told my husband about M2M where, of course, I wouldn't be going. I have to fly all the way from Belgium to LA, I'll spend the same time travelling as the duration of M2M. But as I was talking to my husband (who is a physicist with a wall to all these things), I got him interested. He end up looking up for flights, without me asking, and telling me he thinks that's it totally crazy to go to LA for 3 days but why not?
All this to say I got my M2M ticket, plus the VIP (I'll get to talk with Marisa Murgatroyd!), plus the hotel. I'm having some kind of trouble with flight reservation but I'll manage it. It's Christmas!!!
HOLY CRAP YA'LL! I think I just made a sale!
Wowza! I think I sold a seat for my EPM program with nothing but the Bird's Eye View and the signature system in place!
For those of you who are worried about what's taught in the "Earn While You Learn" module, know that what Marisa Murgatroyd is teaching is legit. I wasted 6 months in 2018 trying to produce and edit a perfect product only to realize that it didn't really sound like me AND that no one wanted to buy it as I had hoped or expected. Collaborating with your customers is the way to go (and so is imperfection, for that matter). Please learn from my lesson and do imperfect!
Yesterday I pitched my programme to a major corporate and they want to talk! ???? Building out the first module with my colleague, learning from Marisa and Mike as we take step after step towards mission accomplished.
2019 is going to be such a blast and enable us to make a huge difference in the world. ????
Once again, I'm impressed and amazed how you guys stimulate responses. Even I feel the urge to share stuff here (I normally shy away from FB except for ads) - I have learned more about how to create experience programs online so far than I did in the last 10 yrs. My mindmap with observations of things that you guys do differently is a mile long already.
Awesome. Very helpful. Anyho' - I tried out the enrollment call structure yesterday. I never sold coaching in my original business, because I was always assuming they didn't have enough money to make it worth my time. So when I got this request for help, I was planning to enroll him into one or two coaching sessions only.
Well - having gone through the sales hero videos I figured, what the heck, why not try to enroll him into my half year coaching program directly - which is 6k. What shall I say - it worked. Somehow. It felt a little awkward to resist the urge to actually start coaching right away and talk about the clients visions instead, but he went along fine.
And I got a yes at the end. Not 100%, but I'm confident, I'll write the invoice next week after his exams. Thanks guys. Very motivating. Good idea to give us something to do right away after enrollment (while the excitement is at its peak
:) I MADE IT! Yesterday I launched my first online/offline Stress Detox Program, and I made €2400,- so far and know that several other potential clients are also interested.
Greetings Fellow EPM’ers, So happy to be in this fantastic group! I am an eternal student of Life working as a Internal /Emergency Medicine doctor. I love my work, but from a professional perspective, I see that traditional medicine has failed in creating true health and wellbeing. I feel compelled to change this and so I have, as you all, enlisted The Brilliant Marisa to guide me in this endeavor. So far, I am impressed and inspired. I am ready to Live My Message! Thank you Marisa and your fabulous team.
Ok, so I watched the Chatterbox Campaign module today, and further tweaked my working idea for my program offering. I was at the checkout line and saw a cashier I see often. She asked me how my kids were and I reciprocated the question, knowing she has kids too. Then....I decided to try it:
Me: Hey...so, I’m developing an online program to help women and mothers feel more nourished and clear any mental blocks to abundance they may be dealing with. Would you be interested in giving me some feedback?
Cashier: Sure. What kind of feedback are you looking for.
Me: Well, I want to make sure I’m tailoring the program to what women and mothers are really needing and wanting, so it would be feedback regarding what you would want to see/get out of a program like that. My working title right now is “The Vibrant and Abundant Woman: From Depleted to Radiant”
Cashier: Oh wow! That sounds amazing! Like totally a program I would want to be a part of! Here’s my email, and please do contact me.”
????. That really just happened. Haha
Got my first client for the naturopath niche yesterday in my first enrollment call. Super excited and happy!
