One of the most frequently asked questions almost everyone in the online industry is aware of is this:
What if someone else is already in my niche, doing what I want to do, exactly the same way I designed?
Here's my answer
Most bloggers dream of getting paid for what they know. I know I do.
You've spent the time to grow your traffic and audience. You crank out quality posts on a consistent basis. You might have created an online course that is open for enrollment. Yet when it comes to writing sales pages, you freeze. You stare at your blank screen and the blinking cursor.
I know the feeling too well, trust me!
But what makes writing sales pages hard? Is it because they're lengthy? Or is it because you are afraid you'll run out of words to fill the page needed to convince your ideal customer?
Before you launch your coaching programs or services please read this post till the end. Sticky. stories. are. the. bomb!
You know how certain TV characters just stay with you even after the series is over? How you can’t shake off the sadness that your favorite character didn’t
Skilled scriptwriters have mastered the art of building likeable, charismatic characters. One word. One move. One smile….and you have fallen hopelessly in love with a fictional character.
I subscribe to several newsletters from entrepreneurs, speakers, and coaches as a way for me to glean from their mistakes and wisdom. But never has the idea of redefining success in my own way turned me on like it has in the last three days. To be honest, sometimes I get envious when I read big income reports and see people I admire and respect in the online business industry do JV (joint venture) webinars, promoting their courses and services.
I have questions: what if that were me? If I only put out more content, could I possibly attract the attention of these big wigs? Would they introduce me to their circle?
Customer service is the art of leaving you better than I found you. “You. Yes, you. Get outta here! I want the pale face in here” a client told me.
And with that, she pointed at the light-skinned lady in front of me and almost dragged her into the room, totally ignoring my presence. I opened my mouth to remind her that I should be the one helping her but nothing came out.
Yet I smiled and said, “That’s okay. I’ll see you later.”
Maybe her comment was rude. Of course I flinched when she requested for a pale face. But I was grateful for the distraction it provided. I needed that time to ponder over how best I could meet her needs. I also need that time to know how affected I was by her statement. And if I should be affected at all.
Have you ever wondered why people rush into intimacy? I don’t get it. No judgement here, but my issue lies with people who try to “hook” up with you or with others before you’re ready.
A case scenario
I was chilling in my room on a cloudy Sunday afternoon watching my favorite Korean show. In one of the scenes, the guy grabs the girl by the arm and pressures her to say “yes” to his love confession. She wrestles free from his grip and instead folds her arms across her chest. Wearing a worrisome look on her face, she fixes her gaze on his appearance.
If we could just comfortably tell others to invest in our ideas and solutions without going into much detail, how awesome would that be?
Talking about the features and benefits of your program can sometimes make you feel like an imposter that you want to hide.
Maybe you find it extremely challenging to convince your ideal audience that your ideas and solutions are worth investing in.
Now, there are some entrepreneurs who execute big 5-6 figure launches...and they drop the ball when it actually comes to delivering on your promises.
I put out a survey a little over a week ago about what you would like to see on the blog. The responses were exactly what I was looking for (to be honest, lol), and I feel most delighted to share this with you. You all said me you want to learn more about copywriting and how to make sales with compelling copy.
Cool. We can do that.
But before we work together, there are several things you need to know before you hire a copywriter.
There’s this funny story that I was re-introduced to courtesy of Michael Port. It is the story of The man, His father, and the donkey.
The man, the father, and the donkey were on a journey to a village ahead of them. The man got tired and decided to sit on the donkey. Passersby saw this and exclaimed, “Ha! Look at this evil boy. How can he sit on the donkey while his aged father walks alongside them?!”
Hearing those comments, they switched positions. Now it is the father on the donkey and son walking alongside them.
It is not too late to start thinking about your purpose in life and getting started NOW.
Terrified? Don't be, because the sooner you fail the better your chances of winning and making your win last. I'm serious.
This post is an impactful one, one that I hope will get you out of your seat and lalaland and into action. My wish is that by the time you are through reading, you will make the decision to ethically "stalk" them and take massive action to do what you have been called to do.
