Is your business growing or failing? How do you tell?

Where do you go for answers?

 I’ll tell you where - > here! This episode features Google Analytics and SEO expert Liz Lockard.  

 I met Liz way back in 2012 during one of the first rounds of Fearless Launching. 

 I was eager to get her on the show because I’ve been able to see her grow from a consulting business only to scaling her business with group training programs...literally from idea to launch and then beyond.  

 She’s been seen all over the web (and around Philly where she’s from) -- at LKR Social Media, Rise To The Top, Social Media Examiner and more… prepare yourself from some giggles...but in between we manage to cover a bunch of more serious and useful topics.

 This episode is jam packed.

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

•Tricking yourself to launch (and to do many other things)

•Why a little pig makes me so happy

•How Liz got the knack for numbers and data, and all that stuff that makes    most people sick to their stomach

•What Liz thinks about trying to keep your SEO tuned exactly to Google algorith

•How to look at your data and know that your business is growing or at least on track

•What’s more wayyyy more important than watching page views

•On site and off site methods of “doing SEO” for your business website

•The #1 mistake that new business owners are doing when they try to SEO their website

 We do a lot of giggling for a chat about analytics and data...so don’t be surprised, but I can assure you that we dig in deeper on strategies and tips to get you started with both analytics and SEO.

Today’s episode features Erin Stutland.  I worked with Erin on her first launch of the Shrink Session workout and since then the program has grown like crazyyyyy.  

 

I pulled Erin into the launch lair to talk about her recent amazingness launch for Shrink Session and the free challenge that blew the roof off the launch...but what we ended up talking about was how Erin’s launched other programs, changed her business over time.

 

We talk fear, fun, and crushing it.  Enjoy and make sure to leave her a comment below!

Today’s episode features Hilary Rushford - style blogger, stylist, and now entrepreneurial guide + strategist...and author!

This lovely has so much energy and insight to give, even seasoned business owners have something to learn here.

What I think I like most about Hilary is her story and how real it is--the journey of discovering the corporate life was not for her and how she went on a mega self-learning business school pilgrimage to figure it all out.  She's driven, smart, and really funny too!

Here’s what you’ll learn in this episode:

  • How to and how to NOT launch a book
  • How far in advance did Hilary started prepping for the launch
  • The exact launch team that evolved during the launch + who she wishes she would’ve hired first
  • Why she chose to do an interview series + a blog tour as her prelaunch content
  • What she’d do differently if she could do it again
  • The types of products she sells + how she manages to serve two often different audiences
  • And...we crack the case and share our favorite brands (clothes, people) and why

Today’s show features entrepreneur Jessica Kupferman, podcast, mom, funny lady…and word of warning - we always have a ton of fun together, interrupt each other and generally like to make a joke if things get too serious.

She's obsessed with podcasting and sharing why your business needs a podcast... and specifically why more women need to do podcasts!

Here’s what goes down:

  • Jessica shares how she produces two shows per week (maybe more by the time this goes live!).
  • An impromptu brainstorm how to make the content workflow easier.
  • I also share my results with the podcast + she gives me a few tips.
  • How to be an introvert and still manage to talk to people all day long.
  • Find out what’s changed in her business over a full year of podcasting.
  • Why podcasting is so cool for building an audience of people you don’t know already!
  • Why we need more women podcasters!!

And you’ll hear Jessica go off on delegating, being interviewed, and helping me create the officially first NON-CLEAN interview, so grab your headphones for this one.

So, today’s episode we’re chatting with Jen Louden about her approach to teaching and how she’s created a program that dives deep into the topics of student engagement, the course creation process, and some hidden things that prevent people from sharing their goods in the first place.

 

Here’s what we cover in this episode:

 

  • The truth about getting people to learn  

  • The one thing you should do every single time you start a course to get people engaged quickly

  • I ask Jen to expand on why less is more when you’re creating a class of any kind

  • How to make sure people remember what you’re trying to teach them

  • How to structure your course for different levels of people

  • The ideal process of creating a class

Question…

Do you only take on projects that you’re “qualified” to do?

Would you accept a client or project or job where you weren’t technically trained to do it, but you knew you could learn?

If you’re willing to be totally honest with the people involved, these types of opportunities might be more available to you than you think.

And that’s just what happened to Kelly Kingman!

Being an entrepreneur is like being a detective.

You’re on the hunt for people who have the one big problem you solve.

So you try all different types of things to find these people.

You’re testing all sorts of ideas in your head, with your friends…teasing them out to the readers of your blog.

You’re looking for that worthwhile “thing” to launch or to put you on the map. Make you legit.

Truth is: getting any idea out into the world, takes thought, effort and so much more than someone making a move, clicking a button or saying yes.

So the mere act of launching gives you so much klout as a business owner (even internal klout counts).

Today’s episode of The Fearless Launching Show covers those lessons you can learn faster and more effectively when you launch an idea.

We’ve all been there.

It’s the morning your launch opens.

 

You “un” redirect your sales page and excitedly send out the “we’re open” email.

 

Your preloaded social media messages trickle out during that first day. You wait - hopefully for the first, second, and third sales to come in.

 

And maybe you get some, maybe you don’t.

 

But - after that initial open - and perhaps a few more emails, maybe some other “launchy” content.  What do you do to make sure your launch isn’t a bust?

In today’s episode of the Fearless Launching Show I’ll be sharing 5 simple actions you can (and should take) if people aren’t buying your offering.

So if you’ve been reading my blog over the past 2 years, perhaps even following along with me over the lastfew weeks, in my newsletters, the podcast and even on social media – I stick to a few topics that I’m seriously passionate about.

I dive into the process of creating amazing online products, how to reach the right new people, and of course how to launch your products and services online.

But more than that – I get excited to share resources to help you build your business – anything that gives you a proven framework and then sets you up for an easier launch.

Marie Forleo’s B-School is one of only 2 programs I tell people to take before stepping into the Fearless Launching clubhouse.

Listen in my behind the scenes - very personal take on working inside B-School and being a student.

If “keep doing something until it no longer works” is your motto - does that mean you shouldn’t make business changes and do the same exact thing until NOTHING’S working?

At what point do you decide to change things up?  Do you have to change everything?

If you’re not thinking about these questions, start today.

There’s this idea spreading around the online business landscape that says anyone can package up their knowledge and sell it.  And while that’s true – in order to stand out – it’s important that your training sticks with your students. Can you say that is true about your own product with complete confidence?  Do you know what your customers will remember after they leave your course, finish reading your book, or stop working with you?  Karen Sargeant of the Sunny Patio Project joins us today on the podcast to discuss...

Jan 22, 2014

A launch is a series of moving parts that can get complex and overlap.  Because of this - mistakes happen.

 

Even the absolutely flawless launch plan can end up slightly mangled.

Tech problems, systems breakdowns, team members who don’t deliver, team members that do deliver, team leaders that change their minds constantly… it’s all part of the process of launching.

Finally unveiling the Fearless Launching show...Wanna know what it's all about? Take a listen and then visit the website to find out much more:

The Fearless Launching show is all about how to narrow in and get things done that matter to you - to build the things you dream about - when the odds are stacked against you - when it feels like everything is set to derail you - when your family seems to be conspiring to block your every move.

I created this place as a way to communicate with entrepreneurs building their business who need someone to stay accountable to, who may need some inspiration on a regular basis...and who simply want current, real details on what happens when you decide to do this whole “start a business” thing.
