Starting Point to Transform Your Online Business
A great place to start is list out which area you want to focus on first.
1 List Tasks to Delegate
2 Freebies & Online Courses to Create
3 Social Media Channel Focus
4 Videos to Create and/or Delegate
The next step might involve prioritizing high impact tasks, outlining tasks to delegate first, and a timeline for automation and delegation. I've got great examples with our Creation Club lifestyle transformation mastermind and the free #14daychallenge.
Online Business Like a Boss
When I began creating an online business, I started on WIX for our website. I knew I wanted to grow with automation. I outlined wellness, media, and travel freebie ideas. I implemented whether it was here in Atlanta, or traveling globally on our retreats. I learned from people like Brendon Burchard, Chalene Johnson, Herbalife Leaders and Coaches, and Strategic Coach to start.
I tune in regularly to get inspired from others. At the same time, I focus on creating more than I consume. In addition, I carve out time by myself in nature and to journal to make sure I am aligned to my God given passions and purpose. It is very easy to get distracted by others voices.
I unplug from social media regularly for hours and days. I intentionally delete the Instagram app off of my phone daily so I remove the temptations more and more for distractions.
Weekly, I outline 21 ways to serve, and how I may make a minimum of 4 areas more efficient. I learned this approach from Tommy Newberry, one of my coaches I learn from. This includes researching and assessing tools to transform online business like a boss.
Years ago, when I learned from Brendon and Chalene, I fell in love with Kajabi and the ease of automation for emails, freebies, and online courses. In social media, I experienced how Tailwind made sharing easier with social media. I learned how to simplify videos when I found the Splice App.
Last, but definitely not least, I freed up hundreds of hours of my time with virtual assistants from Okay Relax.
Emails, Freebies, and Automation for Online Business with Kajabi
I am celebrating the journey and learning to be content at every step. Don't think for a second being an entrepreneur is easy or learning and applying things is. This is years in the making. I have my own challenges I am overcoming at this moment with stable and consistent income, and paying off debt.
Kajabi is an all in one marketing platform. It is not the only one. It is the one I learned on from with Brendon and Chalene and loved the set up and ease. I started implementing freebies and automation on Kajabi in 2017. I launched my first challenge in 2017 and my first mastermind in 2018. In 2018, I expanded creating an online course library and teaching others.
In 2019, I set up our influencer marketing platform. In 2020, I set up our agency and brand set up. These are all done with Kajabi along with forms in Google. I share the steps so you recognize this is years in the making.
Kajabi will help you with freebies, emails, landing pages, automation, and creating platforms in your online business.
Social Steroids with Resharing Stories with Tailwind App
Don't think for a second, social growth is handed over to you. It is a combination of who you become, how you serve others, and tools you use.
Tailwind App helps you automatically reshare blogs, podcasts, freebies, courses in their scheduler and Smart Loop feature via Pinterest and other social channels.
As a result of creating Pins, delegating to a virtual assistant on Okay Relax, uploading stories and videos on Pinterest, and using Talwind App for scheduling and automation, we were able to grow Pinterest views to 200,000+ in <60 days and now on track to over 400,000 in <30 days, and 1,000,000 within 90 days.
Videos Like a Boss with Splice App
Years ago, videos intimidate, overwhelmed, and terrified me. Even though, I have done public speaking for years, I felt like video is a whole different animal. When we film videos, a lot of time you are all by yourself. It felt so weird to me the beginning to not get immediate feedback from someone in front of me.
I learned from Ashley Renne during our retreats in Cuba to pretend you are talking to your best friend when you do them. That changed so much for me. Weekend Voyagers showed and taught me so much about outlining your videos intentionally.
I attended World's Greatest Speaker Training with Brendon Burchard, Bo Eason, and Roger Love and learned so much about sharing our stories, intentionally adjusting your voice, and sharing yourself on camera.
You can see how there is a lot of investment of time and money in each area. What I found the most important is learn and apply whether you learn for free online or pay for a course or events as soon as possible.
In the beginning, I used my iPhone for videos. I continued to do this through the first freebies and several courses I created via Kajabi. I used a simple editing app that is free on your phone called Splice App. I still use the same editing tool today.
After years of practice, I may now film over 12 weeks of content for our online business in a few hours. If I can do it, so can you.
Start with where you are now. Could you start videos with your IG or Facebook stories? What about doing lives regularly? Have you started your videos via IG & IGTV yet? Have you created your first freebie on your website yet? Do you share videos on social regularly?
Splice App simplified creating videos for me with easy uploads, simple filters and transitions, and royalty free music. The video tool is a life and time saver in more ways than one.
I don't know about you friend, but I know I love simplifying and freeing up my time all the time. Okay Relax, a service with virtual assistants, has helped me save hundreds of hours of time. Their virtual assistants have helped me in everything from creating pins on Canva to researching agents for my books to bundle platforms for online courses.
In the last 3 months, I have easily outsourced over 60 tasks if not more. They offer various plans ranging from 5+ tasks per month and $35 monthly on up depending on your needs currently. I estimate each task saves me a minimum of 15 min to an hour. Not to mention, the peace of mind something is being worked on while I work on something else, sleep, reflect in nature, and/or workout.
Tasks you may easily delegate include social media templates on Canva, researching tools and resources, and outreach for business development. In the last month alone, I have delegated Pins and uploads, business development with Fortune 500 companies and travel bureaus, and scaling my e-books.
When you delegate, be intentional to set up others for success. Every time, I delegate, I first perform the task myself a minimum of 1-4 times. I challenge myself to simply the task in 1-5 steps for any task first. I then share with the virtual assistants.
An example for business development includes creating a template, sharing exactly what person/position I am looking for in the company e.g. Human Resources / Marketing, and asking the VA to include the link for the contact in the template. The result? 3 steps to get what I want without my doing it in the future.
I scale further by setting this task as a reoccurring task monthly, as well as then transitioning the outreach via LinkedIn and e-mail to the VA next.
What tasks could you outsource to start? Create a list of manual tasks you do over and over to start. A great place to start includes social media, e-mails, and research. You may love my free blog and podcast series on Creating an Online Course in a Week Like Us too.
