In today’s discussion, we will explore the power of leveraging Facebook to attract the best clients quickly and efficiently. While some may view Facebook as the less glamorous option in the world of social media, it offers a treasure trove of tools and functionalities that can help you build your business effectively. Let’s dive into how you can maximize this platform to your advantage.

The Wisdom of Experience

While Facebook may not be the latest social media sensation, it brings a wealth of experience and wisdom. Just like a pair of “granny panties,” it might not be flashy, but it offers time-tested features and tools.

Discovering Your Audience on Facebook

Many entrepreneurs struggle with establishing SEO on their websites, especially when they’re just starting. Facebook provides a built-in audience that can be tapped into without the hassles of SEO, making it an attractive option.

The Power of Messaging Before Ads

Before diving into Facebook ads, it’s crucial to fine-tune your messaging and validate your offers. Rushing into ads without a solid message can lead to wasted resources and disappointment.

Tailoring Price Points

Your pricing strategy on Facebook depends on your business’s maturity and your confidence in your offers. If you’re just starting, consider testing your offers at price points ranging from $27 to $297.

Staying Lean and Focused

Instead of spreading yourself too thin across multiple platforms and strategies, focus on what’s working for you on Facebook. Leverage Facebook’s tools, such as stories, groups, personal pages, and business pages, to build your brand and attract clients.

Consistency is Key

Cohesive and consistent content is more valuable than constantly creating new, unrelated content. Ensure that your content speaks to your ideal clients and reinforces your brand message over time.

The Simplicity of Lean Business Growth

Not every entrepreneur aims for massive expansion. Facebook’s simplicity allows you to maintain a lean business structure, minimizing overwhelm and enabling steady growth.

Speaker:

Speaker:

Speaker:

growth, from copywriting to course creation, mindset to video marketing.

Speaker:

They've got you covered tune in for expert guest interviews on all things,

Speaker:

marketing and business, and learn how to work on your business, not just in it.

Speaker:

So get ready to unlock your business potential and take it to the next level.

Speaker:

So today she's going to talk about how to attract the best clients

Speaker:

faster using Facebook alone.

Speaker:

So we're going to talk about Facebook.

Speaker:

So how and why do you think people should be hanging out on Facebook for businesses?

Speaker:

It's so funny because a lot of the gurus say, the cool kids are

Speaker:

hanging out on TikTok and threads now has launched since last we spoke.

Speaker:

And I will admit Facebook feels like it could be the granny panties

Speaker:

of the social media channels.

Speaker:

But what comes with granny panties is experience, wisdom, right?

Speaker:

So Mark Zuckerberg.

Speaker:

Has actually really given us some amazing tools to use all in this one platform.

Speaker:

And when I made the shift from, mindset wise from looking at Facebook as like

Speaker:

this social media platform to just be hanging out with friends that I haven't

Speaker:

seen in so long to really looking at all the different functionalities

Speaker:

and understanding how they.

Speaker:

appeal to different members of your audience.

Speaker:

I came to Facebook after three years of blogging, Pinterest marketing doing the

Speaker:

SEO deep dives for my blog, running my podcast for my blog with zero clients

Speaker:

and came onto Facebook initially tried to say, okay there's an audience

Speaker:

already here built into Facebook.

Speaker:

Let's just.

Speaker:

Throw the blog content on here.

Speaker:

That didn't work.

Speaker:

It took some trial and error, but came on here with a non specific

Speaker:

one on one coaching offer.

Speaker:

And I now have two, what are being both built out into evergreen

Speaker:

offers, smaller offers that I come out with in between them.

Speaker:

And they consistently attract the best clients.

Speaker:

So I basically got my whole business.

Speaker:

going, including idea generation, idea validation, understanding

Speaker:

how to speak to my ideal clients.

Speaker:

All from just using Facebook and not spreading myself thin anymore across

Speaker:

different platforms and, blogging and all those other tools really.

Speaker:

I know from experience to that.

Speaker:

It can be a real challenge to establish your SEO on your website.

Speaker:

Unless you're selling, e commerce stuff and getting constant, people

Speaker:

in and purchasing and stuff.

Speaker:

That's hard.

Speaker:

That's a grind.

Speaker:

It is.

Speaker:

And it also feels especially when you have that creative streak in you, and I imagine

Speaker:

most of us do, which is why we like to set out on our own and do our own thing it

Speaker:

really makes you feel beholden to ticking off the SEO boxes and not necessarily

Speaker:

feeling like you could just write from the heart and still get eyes on it.

Speaker:

So it lets a burnout.

Speaker:

It was really it also made me rethink like, am I doing the right thing?

Speaker:

I realized I was doing the right thing just the methodology.

Speaker:

Business in general is a live and learn.

Speaker:

Isn't it?.

Speaker:

Do you feel like when it comes to Facebook, you said you have

Speaker:

two small evergreen offers and then you have a coaching offer.

Speaker:

So what price points do you feel like Facebook marketing is good for?

Speaker:

Myself.

Speaker:

If you think about it, I'm still a baby in this space.

Speaker:

I've created those two evergreen offers and now the smaller offers or events

Speaker:

within the last year to year and a half.

Speaker:

I test run my offers before they become evergreen on Facebook, right?

Speaker:

So to get that extra layer of validations, and I'll talk about the other layers of

Speaker:

validation in a moment, but I've sold my Offers for from 97 to 297, just as

Speaker:

offers that only run on Facebook before then deciding, okay, I've had a couple

Speaker:

of runs of this at this price point.

Speaker:

It hasn't been a problem to get people in.

Speaker:

And now I feel like it's worth the time.

Speaker:

It's worth the energy to go and build it out on a fee based platform,

Speaker:

like a teachable or a Kajabi.

Speaker:

But I have seen, clients who sell products.

Speaker:

Within the price range of 27 for really small things to 10, 000.

Speaker:

And we know a lot of coaches who are even selling mastermind offers

Speaker:

for 30 K and 50 K on Facebook alone.

Speaker:

So Facebook allows you Reach really across a pretty diverse audience in

Speaker:

terms of what they are willing to invest.

Speaker:

In your solutions and in themselves.

Speaker:

To start on Facebook and to grow and expand on Facebook is really amazing,

Speaker:

especially for the entrepreneur.

Speaker:

And I heard this on a podcast the other day, not everyone wants to

Speaker:

go into this huge expansion and higher teams of people and using

Speaker:

Facebook and understanding the power.

Speaker:

But yet the simplicity in it really allows you to stay lean in your business and not

Speaker:

deal with the overwhelm of expansion the way that a lot of us tend to think of it.

Speaker:

Yeah, you want growth rather than explosion, right?

Speaker:

It's a slow, steady growth.

Speaker:

Yeah, absolutely.

Speaker:

So interesting.

Speaker:

And then I guess are you also just out of curiosity using Facebook ads as well?

Speaker:

No, no ads, no cold DMs.

Speaker:

I'm not saying that I would never use ads.

Speaker:

But here's the thing.

Speaker:

You need to have the right messaging before you run ads.

Speaker:

You all know, we've seen so many people who come right and think that they're

Speaker:

going to use ads right off the bat.

Speaker:

It's going to hit, and then they wind up becoming really discouraged

Speaker:

and losing quite a bit of money.

Speaker:

And then they say ads don't work, right?

Speaker:

But your messaging has to first convert.

Speaker:

Like your offer isn't the only thing that has to convert.

Speaker:

Your messaging has to convert.

Speaker:

You have to understand, as I like to call it, the mouth watering

Speaker:

ingredients or the mouth watering results that your audience respond to.

Speaker:

And why they want to acquire those results.

Speaker:

And so once you get that down, then you can start and you

Speaker:

have these validated offers.

Speaker:

Then you could start looking into Facebook ads.

Speaker:

I would say personally, I'm probably about another year away

Speaker:

before I decide to look at ads.

Speaker:

So once you validated your ads, and then you actually decide to set it up as an

Speaker:

evergreen course on a platform, where do you go with your marketing from there?

Speaker:

Is all of that then continued on Facebook?

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

So I continue my marketing on Facebook.

Speaker:

Because they're just, I'm just now starting to play around a

Speaker:

little bit with Tiktok because I've got the messaging down.

Speaker:

I have the formulation down on how to structure the post.

Speaker:

So I'm seeing how it translates over to Tiktok, but my main

Speaker:

focus will always remain.

Speaker:

Facebook as long as we have all of these tools at our disposal, right?

Speaker:

So you have your stories.

Speaker:

I know that right when I'm launching something, I get amazing women

Speaker:

jumping in right from stories.

Speaker:

So my stories have a pretty high conversion rate when it's just like a

Speaker:

week or two away from launching something.

Speaker:

The posts that I do in my group, my personal page your business page, which.

Speaker:

To be quite honest, I don't fully utilize my business page the way I could even.

Speaker:

So even on Facebook, I'm careful not to spread myself too thin, right?

Speaker:

And Facebook also gives you the opportunity for these amazing

Speaker:

partnerships and cross marketing and promotion that you just don't get that

Speaker:

opportunity as easily on other platforms.

Speaker:

Yes, I 100 percent continue with Facebook.

Speaker:

And something that I think a lot of us don't tend to do.

Speaker:

Is to just lean into what is already working, right?

Speaker:

We take something that's working and then we just almost forget about it or

Speaker:

put it in the back burner and then put our energy and focus into something

Speaker:

completely different when, and that's why I say, I'm just toe dipping in

Speaker:

Tiktok and getting the feel for it because there's no way I'm going to leave

Speaker:

the place that is already generating a steady flow of clients for me.

Speaker:

In pursuit of something that has no, no proven record with me and my business yet.

Speaker:

So leaning into what is already working and seeing how you can refine

Speaker:

those things is also so important for keeping your business lean.

Speaker:

And I think that a lot of people don't, it's looking at,

Speaker:

like you said, what's working.

Speaker:

And I think people get so focused on creating new content.

Speaker:

I got to do something new.

Speaker:

I got to do something interesting when it's that's great, but look at.

Speaker:

Look at your track record, what does your audience react to?

Speaker:

What do they want to see?

Speaker:

Yeah, that's a great point.

Speaker:

And to that point, Jeanne, something that's tripped so many of us up is the

Speaker:

idea that you have to be putting out fresh content and you have to be entertaining

Speaker:

and educating and all of these things.

Speaker:

And so then you have people who come in with like theme days,

Speaker:

like Monday, motivation Monday and tips Tuesday and things like that,

Speaker:

but that actually creates this.

Speaker:

These broken links within the content.

Speaker:

And when you understand that on Facebook and any social media platform that you're

Speaker:

working, I don't want to say against, but you have an algorithm at play.

Speaker:

So your audience is not seeing everything that you put out and people

Speaker:

take breaks for different reasons.

Speaker:

We've seen a lot of people who are now saying, I take off the

Speaker:

weekends or take off the whole summer or the whole holiday season.

Speaker:

Ideally your content should be so cohesive.

Speaker:

Which some people consider boring, but that's okay, right?

Speaker:

But it should be so cohesive that if your content dropped off of

Speaker:

someone's radar for two, three months.

Speaker:

They should be able to come back and when they see your little face

Speaker:

bubble pop up, Oh, that's Jeanne.

Speaker:

She helps you, take your content and repurpose it and get it across platforms.

Speaker:

That's Kirsten.

Speaker:

She's sitting there working with Jeanne, helping you get that

Speaker:

no and trust and visibility up without driving yourself nuts.

Speaker:

So cohesion is the one thing that does that repetition

Speaker:

is the thing that does that.

Speaker:

So not only does it benefit you, it benefits your audience too.

Speaker:

A lot of things in business are just not as sexy as we want them to be, but that

Speaker:

what is sexy having your content work for you and continuing to bring in clients.

Speaker:

That's sexy as hell, right?

Speaker:

So we have to find other ways to entertain ourselves within our

Speaker:

business cause jumping around with our content is not the way to do it.

Speaker:

So let's talk about different types of content.

Speaker:

Like how are we going to get out there and inspire and get our

Speaker:

conversations happening in our Facebook groups or Facebook pages.

Speaker:

Yeah, so I'm a huge fan of having a Facebook group, but also

Speaker:

posting on your personal profile.

Speaker:

And at this point.

Speaker:

There is the option to create a default audience of people that you don't want

Speaker:

to see your content because I can't tell you how many times amazing, brilliant

Speaker:

women with brilliant offers come to me and I don't want to post on my personal

Speaker:

profile and I'm like, picture this.

Speaker:

You have an auditorium that's got 5, 000 chairs, okay?

Speaker:

You are the headline speaker.

Speaker:

Are you really willing to not fill those 5, 000 chairs and

Speaker:

take 5, 000 opportunities away from yourself and your business?

Speaker:

Because there are a few people who maybe don't feel comfortable enough talking

Speaker:

about your business or who tease you or make you feel like it's not enough.

Speaker:

Do it and just...

Speaker:

Take it off so that they don't see your posts, but that is a huge opportunity

Speaker:

base and people who tell me I don't want to grow a Facebook group.

Speaker:

And I think where it comes from is the idea that you have to have a certain

Speaker:

amount of people in your group before it could become profitable before you

Speaker:

could start putting out your offer.

Speaker:

And that's just not the case.

Speaker:

We give ourselves so many things to worry about that in actuality aren't

Speaker:

nearly as important as clarity.

Speaker:

Understanding what they want.

Speaker:

And you can understand.

Speaker:

And this is the beautiful thing about Facebook is that you can get to know

Speaker:

your audience or your ideal client by leveraging other people's audiences

Speaker:

that, have that similar audience, right?

Speaker:

Have those similar people in their audience.

Speaker:

And you can ask these amazing marketing questions and literally

Speaker:

use that as copy for landing pages, copy or inspiration for posts.

Speaker:

I think she's talking to me.

Speaker:

How did she get in my head?

Speaker:

So you get to develop your listening skill.

Speaker:

And hit the ground running if you're willing to utilize other people's groups

Speaker:

as you build your personal profile, as you build your group as well.

Speaker:

It's interesting too, because that's the same with YouTube.

Speaker:

Like we started getting clients really early on from our channel and

Speaker:

people think that you have to have.

Speaker:

Thousands and thousands of subscribers, and it's just not true.

Speaker:

And I think because Jeanne and I both love educating and we

Speaker:

joke that we're not fluffy.

Speaker:

People might be a little fluffy physically, but not

Speaker:

fluffy and how we communicate.

Speaker:

And as far as just the chit chatting and just.

Speaker:

Sharing the photos and the, or personal things, that's just not either of us.

Speaker:

We love teaching.

Speaker:

And I think that's been 1 of our struggles with Facebook.

Speaker:

Do you agree, Jeanne?

Speaker:

We enjoy, which is why YouTube is amazing for us because we love education

Speaker:

and value based content for education.

Speaker:

But yet it's interesting to try to figure out how do we have that type of content

Speaker:

on Facebook that is actually going to, be what people want to interact with.

Speaker:

Exactly.

Speaker:

So what I teach and what I use are six pieces of what I call core

Speaker:

content and core content is just like I got that from Bloggerland SEO.

Speaker:

It would always ask on Yoast SEO plugin.

Speaker:

Is this core content?

Speaker:

And I was like, what does core content mean?

Speaker:

And core content is really just like content that really

Speaker:

speaks to your ideal person.

Speaker:

And so you have the three different phases.

Speaker:

You have the phases of content that you want to use that attracts.

Speaker:

It's content that warms up and then content that will convert your audience.

Speaker:

So as a perfect example, and where the sales funnel comes into play with

Speaker:

Facebook is when you have a Facebook group, we're used to thinking of

Speaker:

email opt ins and lead magnets for your email, but this works amazingly

Speaker:

well for Facebook groups as well.

Speaker:

So I personally, and I know a lot of other Facebook group owners who go live

Speaker:

at least once a week in their group, even if you went live once a month.

Speaker:

That's totally fine.

Speaker:

And you do a live if you want to do something that's a little

Speaker:

bit more you, you were saying, Kirsten, more like teaching.

Speaker:

You can teach something and you can do it in a fun way.

Speaker:

You can do it in a loose conversational way.

Speaker:

As long as in that piece of content, and maybe you already have a piece of

Speaker:

content in your Facebook group that you can say, Ooh, here's one mouthwatering

Speaker:

result that I know whoever watches this, they'll walk away with the ability to

Speaker:

get this one mouthwatering result, right?

Speaker:

You take that piece of content, it lives exclusively pinned to the top of

Speaker:

your community for your people, right?

Speaker:

And then that becomes a lead magnet when you go into other

Speaker:

audiences, ice cold audiences.

Speaker:

And you pop up a simple color block post or what I call a value bait post

Speaker:

where you give a few tips, but at the end of them, you say, Hey, in my

Speaker:

group, I taught this, I taught you how to get X mouthwatering result.

Speaker:

Would you like access to it?

Speaker:

And you get people to raise their hands and this creates a whole snowball effect

Speaker:

in and of itself of people raising their hands, that content getting

Speaker:

kicked back out into the algorithm.

Speaker:

So more people could see it and raise their hand.

Speaker:

And then you go ahead, you have a short conversation in the DMS where

Speaker:

you deliver them the link, and then they come and see your group.

Speaker:

So now you're not just, what I did initially with my group

Speaker:

was just hit the invite button, just invite people to the group.

Speaker:

But when you do it this way, you're getting people

Speaker:

that are raising their hand.

Speaker:

You know that they want something that you have.

Speaker:

So this is a layer now of not just validating the offer.

Speaker:

But validating or qualifying, I should say, the people who are coming into

Speaker:

your group, you know that these are not just group members, these are

Speaker:

highly aligned group members, and it's not uncommon for me to get women from

Speaker:

an ice cold group directly into the offer directly into my offer itself.

Speaker:

Oh, you know what?

Speaker:

I'll get this result faster if I just join the program.

Speaker:

Okay, so thanks for the link, but give me the link to the program.

Speaker:

So I've had that happen as well.

Speaker:

But when they come in and they go directly to that video, your authority like that.

Speaker:

Then they always want to go through other posts and see what kind

Speaker:

of vibe is going on in there.

Speaker:

And so you build that know and trust so quickly.

Speaker:

This is how I.

Speaker:

Really hack down my nurtured to convert times because you can go from someone who

Speaker:

is ice cold to warming them up to being like walking on hot coals, hot for you in

Speaker:

just the matter of them, clicking a link.

Speaker:

And watching a part of a video that you did.

Speaker:

And so this is where the sales funnel comes in.

Speaker:

Just between knowing, understanding the pieces of core content, how they work with

Speaker:

each other and what they open you up to.

Speaker:

And so One of my first offers came off of the backs of a live that I did in my group

Speaker:

that got so much interest from my ladies in the group that it became a part two.

Speaker:

And then when I put out that post into cold audiences and said, Hey,

Speaker:

in this training, I teach you how to use Facebook posts to attract the

Speaker:

most amazing clients to DM you, which completely changes the energy of sales.

Speaker:

So now this live becomes a little mini offering and I run it on Facebook at

Speaker:

no risk, a hundred percent profit.

Speaker:

And after a couple of rounds of that, I said, okay, this is

Speaker:

becoming an evergreen offer.

Speaker:

Could take years sometimes to come up with your offer or like a signature

Speaker:

offer and test it and validate it or build it out without any of those

Speaker:

things and then realizing no one wants it and feeling discouraged.

Speaker:

But, when you know how to use it really expedites that whole process.

Speaker:

Amazingly.

Speaker:

I don't definitely building out offers without the validation,

Speaker:

not actually interviewing people, doing all of your market research,

Speaker:

selling like your beta, like getting all the feedback to improve it.

Speaker:

We've all made that I think once or twice, right?

Speaker:

It's a huge undertaking to, it's like there's so many levels and levels,

Speaker:

but what you're describing is, keeping it on Facebook and, testing it on

Speaker:

Facebook and then expanding on it.

Speaker:

I love that.

Speaker:

Yeah, and there has to be that openness that little bit of openness and

Speaker:

willingness to allow your audience to guide you as well, because

Speaker:

sometimes we get very attached to our ideas of what we want to create.

Speaker:

And it could be a little hard to let go of it but I promise you that when you test

Speaker:

it and maybe now's not the right time I put one of my offers on the back burner.

Speaker:

For the Facebook simplified sales funnel lab because that's what my audience

Speaker:

wanted like now and then I still was able to bring in the other offer and

Speaker:

sell it but, being able to listen and take fast action happens a lot easier

Speaker:

and faster on Facebook than as opposed to, oh, okay, am I going to host it on

Speaker:

Teachable, am I going to do Kajabi and then going into all the Technical, back

Speaker:

end of that set up, just simplifying it.

Speaker:

And that's really what, especially as women allows us to get the ball

Speaker:

moving and not lose our sanity or on a serious note, our wellbeing.

Speaker:

When we're building businesses, when we're home and, I homeschool two

Speaker:

children as well, my two children.

Speaker:

It can get a little hairy.

Speaker:

So it's really in everyone's best interest to keep it simple.

Speaker:

And that leads me to another question.

Speaker:

How much time do you actually spend on Facebook each week?

Speaker:

I spend about I would say 10 hours a week on Facebook and that's probably

Speaker:

a bit more than a lot of people would want to spend on Facebook.

Speaker:

But here's the thing when it comes to outsourcing.

Speaker:

And this is just my personal take on it.

Speaker:

My personal points of contact with my audience are not the things that

Speaker:

I ever want to remove myself from.

Speaker:

And not just for business purposes, but I do also, I'm a people person and I do

Speaker:

genuinely enjoy being on social media.

Speaker:

So I've, and I've made some of my closest friends and the most amazing

Speaker:

relationships through being on Facebook.

Speaker:

So for me, 10 hours a week.

Speaker:

It's a joy.

Speaker:

Whereas for someone else, it might not feel like that.

Speaker:

So you get to decide, okay, I want help in this area.

Speaker:

Maybe I want help around the house so that I could spend a little more time

Speaker:

on social media, or maybe I want someone to take over the social media for me.

Speaker:

Maybe I want to do a live once a week.

Speaker:

I could spend a couple of hours a week on Facebook and then maybe I hand it off

Speaker:

to Kirsten and Jeanne to go and put it up on YouTube and put it up here and there.

Speaker:

So that I'm optimizing that one piece of content.

Speaker:

So the beauty of it is that you all get to decide how we want to do it.

Speaker:

But it doesn't have to take 10 hours a week, right?

Speaker:

But you love it.

Speaker:

So that's important.

Speaker:

Yeah, , I know I spend more than 10 hours a week on YouTube.

Speaker:

Most of us probably spend more hour, more than 10 hours a week, just mindlessly

Speaker:

scrolling on like a TIktok or something where we're not even really just.

Speaker:

Learning something, we're just like scrolling and getting carried away

Speaker:

with whatever nonsense, whatever dance, whatever cat video we find.

Speaker:

I tried really hard not to do that, but it is a tricky slope, isn't it?

Speaker:

A very slippery slope.

Speaker:

I have to invite you too, Lisa, to tell us about the program

Speaker:

that you're working on right now.

Speaker:

In the name of simplification, or in the spirit of simplification,

Speaker:

it is cut to clients.

Speaker:

It's literally cut out all, like you said before, you're not into fluff, right?

Speaker:

I'm not into fluff either.

Speaker:

So it's like literally cut like the editing room floor.

Speaker:

A lot of times we get into these programs and a lot of people will add, will stuff

Speaker:

their programs, thinking that's what gives them the permission to go high ticket.

Speaker:

But then they don't realize that they're taking their client on a journey

Speaker:

through hell that they never asked for.

Speaker:

And prolonging the result.

Speaker:

So with Cuts at Clients, the idea is Get the results faster and then extras.

Speaker:

This is like a little library where if you need a deeper

Speaker:

explanation on something, go here.

Speaker:

But if this is good for you, and you're able to take action on it, I'm not going

Speaker:

to put these roadblocks in front of you.

Speaker:

I'm not going to have you.

Speaker:

And this is no offense because I love my spiritual ladies, but I'm not going

Speaker:

to have you outside doing, rituals under the moon howling at the moon with your

Speaker:

crystals and then a notebook taking notes on what feelings come up for you.

Speaker:

That's journal to profit so I do have a program that's for that but it is not this

Speaker:

one this is for practical business and back to what we were talking about before.

Speaker:

We started reporting.

Speaker:

We are in an echo chamber, right?

Speaker:

We get shown content that we consume and that we interact with other people.

Speaker:

And so we sit there and a lot of times we'll see, oh, they're adding this to

Speaker:

their program, or they're doing that.

Speaker:

And so then if our programs, if we're not disciplined, can become this kind of

Speaker:

moshposh of A little bit of everything.

Speaker:

And that's not what clients are looking for.

Speaker:

Clients are looking for results.

Speaker:

They're looking for practicality.

Speaker:

And if they have deeper questions, if they want to dive deeper

Speaker:

into something, that's great.

Speaker:

There's a resource for that.

Speaker:

That's included.

Speaker:

But if you can just go, maybe you're beyond that.

Speaker:

Maybe you've dealt with that already.

Speaker:

Just go at your own pace.

Speaker:

And so that's what Cut to Clients is.

Speaker:

It's a no BS way to go from a non specific offer To using exactly how I

Speaker:

used Facebook to idea generate, idea, cast, grow that audience, sell, get more

Speaker:

comfortable with visibility and all of those things that you need to sell and

Speaker:

none of the stuff that you don't need.

Speaker:

Yeah, it's so true.

Speaker:

Like cutting out all of the fluff because people, they want the result.

Speaker:

They don't want everything that we know.

Speaker:

And I think that's hard for a lot of us because we feel we know so much

Speaker:

information we want to share it.

Speaker:

We're excited about it.

Speaker:

But the reality is most people, they want to be efficient.

Speaker:

They don't have a lot of extra time taking a course or another

Speaker:

program is not at the top of their.

Speaker:

I want to do list.

Speaker:

It's I might have to do this, but it's not.

Speaker:

I want to do this.

Speaker:

And, when Jeanne and I first started our program, that marketing being advantage,

Speaker:

we were so excited because we've been outsourcing for 15 years and we love

Speaker:

hiring and we just love the whole process.

Speaker:

And we thought everyone should know how to do that as a business

Speaker:

owner, you should know how to hire.

Speaker:

By the time we were in our 3rd iteration of the program, the feedback

Speaker:

we were getting, and it came off the cuff from a couple of people was,

Speaker:

could you just hire people for us?

Speaker:

And they just, it was just thrown out there.

Speaker:

And then 1 day, I looked at Jeanne and I was like, we could and so we just remove

Speaker:

that entire learning process for them.

Speaker:

And we were able to do it all in house.

Speaker:

And so I think it's so important to realize that people do want just

Speaker:

the information, just the task, the things that they have to do

Speaker:

to get the result that they want.

Speaker:

And nothing else, and I think now more than ever, because people are maxed out.

Speaker:

And so we joke that our training and our entire program is less than 5 hours.

Speaker:

It's a lot more training for the virtual assistant.

Speaker:

It's on their end because they go through a much deeper training process,

Speaker:

but for our clients, it's about 5 hours of information that they need.

Speaker:

And then we support that with the weekly coaching calls.

Speaker:

And here's what's fascinating is people don't necessarily want

Speaker:

weekly coaching calls either.

Speaker:

They want.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

The result.

Speaker:

So they will show it, which is awesome for us because they show up.

Speaker:

In the beginning when they have questions, but once they have their

Speaker:

marketing strategy down and they have their virtual assistant, they're off and

Speaker:

running and they really don't need us.

Speaker:

We miss them because we may have these great people, but it's nice

Speaker:

to know that they have just they've gotten on with their business.

Speaker:

They're doing what they need to do.

Speaker:

And I love that.

Speaker:

You see the value in that.

Speaker:

So this is, I think your next program would be amazing.

Speaker:

Thank you.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

People want to get the results and they want to feel good

Speaker:

about how they get the results.

Speaker:

We don't do anyone any favors when we drag it out.

Speaker:

And like you ladies took fast action.

Speaker:

You noticed something when you got feedback and you had that realization,

Speaker:

even though you love teaching, right?

Speaker:

And I'm sure you loved it, but you said, Hey, we had this realization

Speaker:

as high school students, right?

Speaker:

When we went and got the CliffsNotes rather than reading the whole

Speaker:

damn thing, because even back then before children and households and

Speaker:

things like that When it was just, I just want to have my free time.

Speaker:

I just want to go to the mall.

Speaker:

I just want to bop around with my friends.

Speaker:

Even then we knew the things that we didn't want to

Speaker:

spend or, waste our time on.

Speaker:

And then we wanted to just get to it.

Speaker:

And as adults.

Speaker:

It's not even any longer just a matter of wanting to get to it.

Speaker:

It's a necessity for a lot of us to just get to it.

Speaker:

Yeah, no, absolutely.

Speaker:

I literally duplicate my.

Speaker:

Sales pages or landing pages and just update them according to the offer.

Speaker:

But the same way that, I've been toe dipping in email.

Speaker:

I really haven't been consistent with it.

Speaker:

So this is even without an email list cultivated.

Speaker:

So what I do is I just use the six pieces of work content and

Speaker:

I invite so calls to action.

Speaker:

When you don't have a big, long sales funnel, which those

Speaker:

just never appealed to me.

Speaker:

Your calls to action on some of these pieces of core content are

Speaker:

going to be really important.

Speaker:

Having a link to the landing page in your profile or that you can

Speaker:

include in a post or in a comment of the post or a live that you've done

Speaker:

is going to be really important.

Speaker:

And that essentially becomes.

Speaker:

Your kind of funnel.

Speaker:

It doesn't have to look like this long, complicated funnel.

Speaker:

There is a an entrepreneur on Facebook who only uses Facebook and

Speaker:

her call to action is only ever.

Speaker:

I happily accept DMS.

Speaker:

And she doesn't have a website.

Speaker:

She doesn't have any of the things.

Speaker:

And people just DM her.

Speaker:

So what I do also is I invite people to DM me.

Speaker:

I give them a word that's like a conversation starter.

Speaker:

Cause some people are shy to DM even though you're inviting them to.

Speaker:

And it just feels so comfortable from there.

Speaker:

And I like to brag that in the DMs half the time, the content

Speaker:

has already pre sold them.

Speaker:

So they're saying things like, Oh, maybe they have a question.

Speaker:

And then it's like, all right, give me the link.

Speaker:

I'm ready to throw my credit card at you.

Speaker:

Let's do And then we just stay on and have a conversation about

Speaker:

something like a mutual thing that we enjoy, like heart astrology,

Speaker:

horoscopes, talk about each other's horoscope and just different things.

Speaker:

And when you can have your content, take the edge off of sales.

Speaker:

And listen, I did door to door Kirby vacuum sales where I killed it in about

Speaker:

a month and a half one summer when I was still when I was a junior in high school.

Speaker:

But even having doors slammed in my face and having that experience.

Speaker:

So when your content sits there and removes, it addresses, it does

Speaker:

the job of like your frequently asked questions page right.

Speaker:

And this is where also knowing your audience is huge.

Speaker:

Right when your content can speak to them and addresses their concerns and inspires

Speaker:

them does a little bit of all of that.

Speaker:

That's your funnel right there.

Speaker:

And then a sales page, or if you want to bypass that completely a PayPal

Speaker:

link a call if you want to do a call.

Speaker:

It gets to be simple when we can wrap our heads around the idea and the

Speaker:

fact that it just truly can be simple.

Speaker:

Everyone is marketing something, right?

Speaker:

So of course you have some brilliant entrepreneurs marketing

Speaker:

brilliant and beautiful and fun and exciting sales funnels.

Speaker:

But that's not for everyone, right?

Speaker:

Creating more things and more things just to get some, it's not for everyone.

Speaker:

So if you enjoy creating written content and you don't mind going live once in a

Speaker:

while turning Facebook into a simplified sales funnel and maybe having one

Speaker:

landing page is really all that you need.

Speaker:

It's leaning into the things that work.

Speaker:

Consistency will never fail you, right?

Speaker:

So leaning into the consistency of showing up, putting your

Speaker:

content out, getting to know your audience, addressing your audiences.

Speaker:

Concerns so that by the time they DM you, they really don't have any questions

Speaker:

other than, okay, where's the link?

Speaker:

I love that.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

Somebody who is I think it might've been Alex Hermosi who

Speaker:

just says do the boring work.

Speaker:

What you would consider boring just because it's repetitive,

Speaker:

get it out there and do it.

Speaker:

Yeah.

Speaker:

They repeat processes.

Speaker:

It's do it.

Speaker:

Rinse.

Speaker:

Repeat.

Speaker:

Do it.

Speaker:

Rinse.

Speaker:

Refine.

Speaker:

Throw it out there, with the little slight tweak, but, and it doesn't

Speaker:

have to be these huge refinements and these huge tweaks either.

Speaker:

That's why we see so many entrepreneurs who, especially in the earlier stages,

Speaker:

they hop from one niche to another.

Speaker:

And niche isn't the problem.

Speaker:

Just get to know your audience a little bit better.

Speaker:

Ask those questions.

Speaker:

If you're just starting out, ask questions and ask questions in groups that are more

Speaker:

established and listen and then respond.

Speaker:

Love that.

Speaker:
