On this show, we're serving up innovative growth strategies, simple implementation methods to put them into practice and action stimulating inspiration tailored specifically for the modern entrepreneur. Let's dive in.

Lisa:

So I am a career confidence coach, and I'm hosting a live masterclass the week after yours on September 18th. So it's 2 weeks today, and I will tell you that I changed my business model to the live launch model after I went to your masterclass because I was like, who is this woman? I love her. Just all of it resonates with me. I think you can even tell from my energy. I'm just like, I have no problem delivering content live. And So I've been going through the modules and I saw the whole schedule that Jackie had created around Your conversion events, do you have 1? What's the data you're collecting? I can't remember everything I said. But anyway, thank you for that. So helpful because I wasn't even thinking it's It's almost like I forgot how to run a business.

Lisa:

Do you know what I mean?

Melissa:

Like, I was A lot of people do. They come into this and then they just, like, close their eyes and cross their fingers and hope things happen.

Lisa:

I swear to God, it's like I never ran a P and L before. Crazy. But, anyway, all that's done. So I'm hosting it in 2 weeks, and I really want to fill my master class. So my revenue goal the investment in my program is $5,000 paid in full. This is really the first time. I launched it the first time in August, it was really like a soft launch because I wanted to get all my systems automations, like, done on the back end because I felt like, okay. If I'm gonna do this, I really need to build it out, like, build out the machine.

Lisa:

So I did that. I just did it. Like, sent an email to my list. Like, I just wasn't so great at marketing afterwards. Right? So I didn't make any sales, like, 0 sales. This launch. My revenue goal is 20 k, which is 4 new clients, and I really want to fill the masterclass organically because I've spent, like, a gazillion dollars on Facebook ads in the past, and I'm still traumatized over it. Also, I don't have the cash flow.

Lisa:

My question to you is, what is your recommendation on how I can Fully utilized LinkedIn so that I can fill this master class and generate 20 k in revenue, which is my goal.

Melissa:

Yeah. So do you know what your projected conversion rate is? My projected conversion rate is 5%. 5%. Okay. So do you know what that means for how many you need to enroll to hit that?

Lisa:

Yes. Like, registering, I think, is, like, a 100 people. I don't even know. Well, 10% would be 50, so 5% is

Melissa:

a 100. Yeah. So, like, a little under a100. Let me see. Eighty Times 0.05. Wait. Yeah. 8.

Melissa:

Okay. So this is for everybody. I have a podcast episode on this as well, if anybody's lost on what we're talking about. But this is how you make a science out of your launches and not just hocus pocus. Okay? You have to know your projecting conversion rate, which is basically like for us. We know exactly how many people need to register in order for for us, our conversion rate's about 2.2%. So the longer you run launches, the lower your conversion rate gets because the colder your audience is. Right? Your first couple of launches are super warm.

Melissa:

You can get upwards of 5 to 8% conversion rate with a totally warm market. If you want 4 people to convert at 5%, you need 80 people to register. Everybody got that? So she needs 80 people to register to a conversion event if she's projecting that 5% of them will purchase four, right, to get that 20,000. Okay? So that's where she got that number. So we need 80 people to register and you have 2 weeks. Do you have a registration page?

Lisa:

I do.

Melissa:

Okay. Are you running and promoting that it's are you gonna stream it live? Have you thought about how many days is it?

Lisa:

It's 5 days. I'm a 100% streaming it live. I haven't done anything because it was a long weekend. Like, today, I I'm literally it's like ground 0 damn one day, which I know is a short time frame. That's why I'm here talking to you with my fingers. Yes. So I

Melissa:

would suggest that you promote it as a LinkedIn live. You can create LinkedIn live pages. Like, you you can rate create LinkedIn live events and ask people to register for it. But you're also going to want to do you have an email list?

Lisa:

I do. 1200 people are on it.

Melissa:

Okay. So you're also gonna wanna do a series of emails to promote it and ask people to register for it. So we just turned on ours today. We like to turn it on 2 weeks before launch, but somehow it got forgotten. So now we're turning it on today. And you guys, hopefully, you won't be of not, like, bothered with it because you're already in the program. Hopefully, we've stratified you out, but we'll have emails going out this week. I would do a series of them.

Melissa:

This is when you have permission to be a little bit obnoxious, especially kind of as the countdown too. So you should get a percentage that opt in from your email list if you're nurturing them. You should also do organic just post with the registration link in the comment section, not in the body of the post, in the comment section. And I would put that on LinkedIn and even in the featured section of your LinkedIn account because you you already have somebody who's proven that they Googled you, gone to your page, and that's your ideal person that could click on the registration button.

Lisa:

I just did that today. Like, it's the first thing in my featured section.

Melissa:

Okay. And one of our favorite things to do, if you like, do a little bit of digging on some of our content and look at the carousels. One of the things we like to do, which it it's kind of a soft promotion for a master class is to not just yes. On occasion, you can say I've got this totally free thing coming up. Please register for it. Here's what it's about. Blah blah blah blah blah. But what we find works really well is actually like carousels that do value first.

Melissa:

Right? So like a case study or like a little bit of data about LinkedIn versus the other platforms or a case study about a client, And then you're swiping through the carousel to learn. Now, you're being seen as a subject matter expert. And by the time you get to the last carousel, it's like, hey, do you wanna learn more about this? Don't miss my upcoming masterclass, register in the comment section. We find that those work really well because People will even share them and engage with them because it's not just a hard sell of like, hey, come join my masterclass. It's value, value, value. Oh, did you like this? Come opt in to this masterclass kind of thing, right? And you can think about that even in your email nurture where you're inviting people to come to the masterclass, like share with them what breakthroughs they can expect, what immediate results they can expect. Maybe even then some of the emails give a lot of value upfront as kind of a subject matter expert and then kind of pitch them on the back end of like, do you wanna learn more? Come join us in the masterclass. Yeah.

Melissa:

And I mean, this is where you become an informed business owner. I can look at my numbers and know exactly how much money I'm gonna make before the launch ever starts. Right? So, like, right now, I know we need 65 100 people to register by our next launch. And right now, we have 45 100 people registered. I'm like, we need 2,000 more. Where are they coming from? Turn on those emails. Right? Like because you can like, if you only have 40 registered, I'm probably gonna hit 2. Right? Because you know your conversion rate.

Melissa:

Right? So I think those are some great places to start is to yeah. I think I gave you a couple of good ideas. Your content on LinkedIn, creating the events and asking people to register for them and making the post on LinkedIn. These next 2 weeks, you have permission to be obnoxious. Meaning a lot of your content that comes out needs to be around this. Okay. You don't have a whole lot of time.

Lisa:

I know. I I'm okay with being obnoxious. Like, I'm so far past that, like Yeah. Where I was when I started. Like, I don't wanna bother anyone. I don't like all the bothers. They're fine.

Melissa:

It's really funny. There's peaks and valleys. Right? When you're ramping up for something, like, fee. The noise gets loud because a large majority of your people are really busy. And even though you're pushing out a ton of content, they're only gonna see little scattered pieces of it. And as soon as the launch is over, you dial it back down, right? And go back to value, value, value. And I've just gotten to a place where it works. And I occasionally have really nasty, snarky people who will complain to me about it.

Melissa:

And I'm like, you're not my person. You wouldn't be good at my program. Like, you're being an asshole right now, and I'm giving you free content, but I deserve the right to follow-up on it. And if my emails are gonna annoy you And you feel so annoyed that you're gonna tell me how annoyed you are. You have preselected yourself out, unfollow, block. Right? Like, that's just how I operate.

Lisa:

Yeah. No. I fully agree. Like, I I take 0 offense because I give 0 craps about. Well, anyone who's actually

Melissa:

in the business and understands it, understands that it's necessary. Right? And people who don't and are really annoyed by it don't understand the science of marketing and follow-up. And that's okay. Learn, just not from me. Exact exactly.
