Making 2016 Your Best Year Ever

making 2016 your best year everThis post contains: “Unique Keys to  Making 2016 Your Best Year Ever”

My fervent hope is that as you read it, you will start to experience various walls that have held you back and kept you stuck in life, finally starting to crumble.

In fact, my goal is nothing less than helping you:

  • Stop.
  • See
  • Listen
  • Understand
  • And Respond
  • Respond with passion, vision and determination

…to the deepest cry of your heart!

And yes, I understand that is no easy task.

But with your permission, I’m going to do my very best anyway.

Because YOU are worth it!

And because I know that if you ‘don’t’ find a way to stop and listen to the cry of your heart…

Something terrible is going to happen…

You are going to spend yet ANOTHER 12 months of your life going round and round the mountain.

Another 12 months worried about this, that and the other.

FACT: if you are like most people, the cry of your heart is often lost in the midst of the busyness of life.

But NOT today!

choosing the right business coachWith my help, today is THE day that you stop ignoring the cry of your heart.

That still, small voice that keeps whispering in your ear: “You deserve so much better than this!”

And yes, I am totally serious.

==> Today can be the day that you begin to heal your life, change the way you think about yourself, and start feeling more optimistic in regards to your future than you ever thought possible…

==> Today can be the day that someone steps alongside you and shows you how to break free from past hurts and disappointments…

==> Today can be the day that you decide: I am going finally do something about making my dreams a reality.

Stop and Think: What Has Held You Back Until Now?

The problem for many of us, is that our upbringing, our home environment, our education and the false messages society has fed us in all combine to make many of the most vital keys to freedom invisible to the us.

But it hasn’t stopped the cry of your heart!

Your heart still longs for things like:

  • Knowing and fulfilling your purpose in life
  • Letting go of past hurts
  • Living life on your terms
  • Experiencing genuine fun
  • Knowing genuine financial freedom
  • Making a genuine difference in the world

But lets be honest, you haven’t known how to get these things.

Before you think I am blaming you. I’m not.

It isn’t for want of trying.

God knows, many of you have spent a small fortune trying to find traction! You have invested in so many different courses it is amazing your brain hasn’t exploded.

But there is always ‘something’ dragging you back.

– – It might be your beliefs about money.

– – It might be that your marketing sucks.

show me what to do

– – And this is a HUGE one… it might be that you have NEVER had anyone come alongside you, take you by the hand and actually show you what to do.

Because once someone who ‘has already done what you want to do’ steps alongside you and hands the right solutions…

  • Situations…
  • Circumstances…
  • Challenges…
  • And Problems…

That previously seemed utterly impossible, totally insurmountable and completely hopeless, are suddenly child’s play.

I’m sure you have seen a magician sawing a woman in half on the stage?

Looked totally impossible right?

But IF they explained exactly how they did it, then it is no longer a mystery.

And with that in mind…

Will you do something for me?

26 Sales Funnel Questions

26 Sales Funnel Questions

sales funnels
When it comes to creating effective sales funnels, experts agree that you must answer these all-important questions…

26 Sales Funnel Questions…

Some business owners create a product, sell it, and then brainstorm their next product.

But the smart ones are always thinking several products ahead.

They don’t just brainstorm a product idea. Instead, they brainstorm an entire sales funnel.

Are you unsure of how to do that?

These questions should help you get a handle on it…

What we’re going to do is start at the entry point of the funnel and work our way through bigger and more expensive products.

Answer these 26 questions to help you plan your sales funnel…

1. Will you have a free entry point into your sales funnel?

2. What type of product will you offer as a lead magnet (AKA, the freebie used to get people onto your mailing list. Report. Checklist. Webinar. VSL)?

3. What offer will you promote from within the lead magnet? [your entry-level product]

4. How much will the entry-level product cost?

5. How will this free product naturally lead people to purchase a paid product?

NOTE: In other words, this is where you plan how to create a *useful-yet-incomplete lead magnet that turns your readers or users into buyers.

For example, you might offer a free report that provides 7 Powerful Tips for Lead Generation.

To learn more, people would need to purchase the paid product to get access to a complete Lead Generation Course.

* Useful Yet Incomplete. HUGE emphasis on the ‘Useful’ [Make your Free Stuff better than the competitions Paid Stuff!]

6. What type of initial autoresponder series will you upload to help convert subscribers into customers?

Specifically:

7. What primary offer will you focus on promoting?
8. What secondary offer will you promote?
9. How many messages in your initial series?
10. What is the content of these messages?

(E.G., “Five keys to Effective Lead Generation” which is five emails that each share a secret and include an offer to get happily involved with your paid product.)

NOTE: I recommend This Autoresponder

11. Will you use soft sell, hard sell, or a combination across the series?

12. What other low-priced entry-level products will be in your sales funnel? List them all here along with their cost. Be sure to note whether these are one-time fees or residual fees (such as monthly membership fees). Generally, these are products that cost from a few dollars to $97

13. What mid-level products will you put into your sales funnel?

These are product that range in price from about $297 to $997.

14. What high-price (premium) products will you put into your sales funnel?

These are products that cost from $11997 on up.

15. What entry level services will you offer?

16. What mid-level priced services will you offer?

17. What high-priced services will you offer? (E.G., coaching and consulting.)?

Go through each of your products and answer these questions:

18. What will you cross-promote from within each product?

19. What will you upsell on the order form?

20. What will you promote from the thank you/confirmation page?

21. What will you promote in the follow-up series of emails you send to customers?

22. What will you promote from within any associated membership sites, forums or other groups?

23. What will you promote during live events?

24. What affiliate offers will you promote from within your sales funnel? List the products, their prices, and your commission rate.

25. Will you be shipping any physical products? If so, what will you promote in the “ride along” flyer that you include in all shipments?

26. Do you have any joint venture partners with whom you’ve agreed to do co-endorsements?

This includes swapping product recommendations and links:

• Within products.
• On newsletter thank-you pages.
• Within the newsletter emails.
• Within lead magnets.
• On paid-product thank you pages.
• Within the paid products themselves.
• On ride-along flyers.
• In follow up emails.
• In upsells.

If you’ve made these sorts of co-endorsement arrangements, list the following:

• Where your product recommendations will appear on their sites.
This will help you to decide the best product for them to promote. You want to choose something that is as closely related to their product or service as possible.

• Where their product recommendations will appear in your sales funnel.
This is important so that you don’t have areas on your site where you have a circus of advertisements. (You want to help people, not overwhelm them with pitches.)

Now that you’ve done a rough outline of your sales funnel, it’s time to fine-tune it. Go back and look at your list of products. Ask yourself if they naturally lead into each other. In other words, are they tightly related so that someone who orders the entry level product will naturally also want the mid-prices and premium products as well?

If there isn’t a natural flow, then go back the drawing board and fine-tune the funnel.

Here’s a simplified example.

Let’s suppose you’re selling blogging information. Your products might include:

• A variety of basic entry-level and mid-priced products which give people the basics of setting up a blog, driving traffic to it, creating content and monetizing it.

• A big-ticket homestudy course that offers in-depth and advanced training. This could even be a physical product, which tends to increase the perceived value.

• A one-week premium eclass that includes personal coaching.

• A membership site where people get access to new themes, blog plugins, PLR content and article templates.

• Ghostwriting services for content. (You don’t have to do it yourself – you can be the “middleman,” where you subcontract out these services to a group of reputable writers on your team.)

As you can see, anyone who enters the funnel at any point is likely to want to purchase additional products since they’re all closely related, and they naturally lead to each other.

That’s just one example. No matter what niche you’re serving, you should seek to create a similar suite of products, and then actively cross-promote these products from within various points in your sales funnel.

Do These 7 Things to See More Sales
 [Part 1]

In order to get inside your prospects’ heads, you need to know as much as possible about them.

1. To Understand Your Target Market, Become One of Them.

In other words, do the things your target market does, which will help you understand their problems and motivations.

For example, if they are bodybuilders, then take up bodybuilding for at least a few weeks.

2. “Eavesdrop” on Their Conversations.

Spend some time reading or listening to the conversations people are having in your market.

A good way to do this is to join niche-relevant forums, Facebook groups and other online communities.

You can also join offline groups. For example, if you’re catering to gardeners, then read online gardening discussions, plus join an offline gardening groups.

3. Study Product Reviews.

A good place to do this is on Amazon.com. It will give you a good idea of what your market wants and what frustrates then about the current solutions.

4. Invest Time Digging Deeper in Your Market Research.

Go to Google and research your market. Sometimes you may find that the government, a university or even an industry leader has compiled information about the market.

For example, if you run a search for “dog owner market research,” you’ll find data compiled by groups such as the American Veterinary Medical Association and others.

5. Interact With Your Market.

Instead of just eavesdropping on your market as mentioned earlier, the key here is to start talking to your market within online communities as well as offline.

  • Ask questions.
  • Ask follow up questions.
  • Ask MORE questions.
  • Ask the RIGHT questions*

Get a good feel as to what’s important to people in your niche.

6. Survey Your Market Formally.

Another way to learn more about your market is by having them fill out a survey. Just be sure that you don’t skew the answers by asking leading questions. You may consider asking open-ended questions (rather than multiple choice) so that you don’t force answers into narrowly defined categories.

TIP: You can use a tool like www.surveymonkey.com to create your survey. Then distribute the link to your own visitors and subscribers, as well as on niche forums, Facebook groups, and blogs. Be sure to ask permission first if you don’t own the platform.

7. Create a Customer Profile.

Once you know as much as possible about your target market, then write down everything you know about them.

This includes:

  • Age.
  • Gender.
  • Where they live.
  • Income.
  • Education level.
  • Hobbies.
  • Problems.
  • What solutions they use for these problems.
  • Their perceived shortcomings with these solutions.
  • Fears.
  • Desires.
  • What motivates them.

And so on. Basically, list every demographic and characteristic you know about your ideal prospect.

NOTE: Never ‘assume’ that you know what someone is thinking, feeling or planning. Never think you know all the answers. Always be open to others telling you what they really want.

These things might not be ‘sexy’ or exciting.

But they are 100% essential if you seriously intend to see more sales.

* I Strongly suggest that you immediately grab a copy of Noah St John’s The Book of Afformations [Available on Amazon]. It will absolutely transform the way that you ask questions forever.

In Part 2, we’ll look at how to use this information to really connect with people in such as way as to build the “know, like and trust” factor.
