Let’s talk for a hot second about what it ~really~ takes to make the money you want.
Because it’s not a fancy Instagram page, a 10,000 person email list, a fancy-schmancy website, or even the coolest home office you’ve ever seen.
You could have all those things and still not make a single damn dollar. 😲
I know, shocking, right?
Because with all the “internet business guru bros” out there, we’re led to believe that all those things are the answers to our problems, so we chase them.
“If only I had more people to sell to,” we think, “then I could make the money of my dreams and I wouldn’t be stuck in such a shit-hole of a life.”
It seems like the perfect answer: obviously we haven’t been successful yet because we haven’t grown enough yet. Simple!
You get to wipe the sweat off your brow because your lack of riches is not your fault, and then go on your merry little way back into your merry little misery of moaning and groaning about your business.
And while there is *some* merit to having a bigger list, let me tell you something: I’ve done some of my best launches to only a few hundred people.
List of 10,000 be damned.
Many have referrals beating down their door and the don’t even have a social media presence or an email list they email regularly. (We’re working on that though, don’t worry.)
So I know for a god damn fact that you need any of these vanity metrics to actually be making the money you god damn want.
What do you need, though?
Is to mother fucking SELL.
To show up and sell daily.
And, no, I don’t mean showing up and sharing some obscure content and encouraging messaging hoping that people will like it, click on it, and magically get sucked into the vortex of your website to become a $1,000+ customer overnight.
No no, dearie.
You need to show up and PUT THE GOD DAMN SALES MESSAGE IN THEIR FACE.
You don’t have to be slimy about it; you just have to put it out there.
Tell them exactly what’s available and what link they can click on to get it.
Don’t hide your offer under the bushes: put it on display for all the world to see.
And show up and talk about it every. damn. day.
You’ve probably noticed that I’ve been doing a lot more of this lately.
Because I mother fucking enjoy writing you emails like this.
Dammmnnnn have I been getting a lot more sales, making more money than before, and getting to serve more clients, therefore living out my mission in a bigger, more impactful way.
Because here’s the thing:
People aren’t gonna know about your sales offers if you don’t fucking tell them about it.
They’re not going to know if it’s for them if you don’t talk about the benefits of it, the features, or what’s included with working with you.
And if they don’t know those things about your offers or products?
You’re sure as shit not gonna sell any.
So decide right now on ~at least~ one daily sales action. What can you do every single day (or at least 5 days a week) to get your sales offer out there?
Send a message like this to your email list?
Post something to your peeps on Facebook?
Do your regularly-scheduled daily Instagram Lives, but gather up the courage to do a call to action at the end?
After you do this for a month I think you’ll be really surprised at the results.
And if you’re not sure what your daily sales actions would be or should be, book a troubleshooting call with me.
Oh my goodness babe, I am SO GOOD at this stuff, it’s not even funny.
Yesterday I had a troubleshooting call with a lovely client, and we’d addressed all her most pressing things half an hour in, and she kept saying how much easier things would be now that she’d gotten my perspective on it and my how-to guidance.
We can do the same for you, boo.
Sales does not have to be hard or feel icky.
Even if you are a total softie inside. You don’t have to be a hard ass like me to be a total rich bitch.
(You’ll be so, so glad you did.)
