Package your knowledge and skills into an online workshop you can easily give from anywhere, to anyone, on autopilot. 💪
COVID-19 has pretty much barged into your office and threatened to blow your house down? You’re losing your mind. You’re sitting at home in a pair of Cheese Doodle-stained undies, wondering whether or not your small biz is gonna make it. Are there going to be clients? Will the clients I do have, stay? Will I be able to weather the storm? And why didn’t anyone tell me about Quarantine 15? (No thanks to all the wine you’ve been guzzling at 2pm, ahem, since you’ve entirely lost track of all time.)
when you thought of it—but life got in the way, and so did naggy clients named Nancy, and now here you are, kicking yourself even MORE than the fact that you didn’t buy Expedia’s trip protection. SO MUCH FOR THAT TRIP TO GREECE! [munches frozen baklava]
In short, you’re like most freelancers and small business owners right now: unsure what the heck to do. Should you keep selling? Not sell? Offer discounts? Pretend nothing’s happening? Scream bloody murder? Beg your clients to keep you? Or perhaps now’s the time to join that monastery….yes….
If your business has been having suicidal thoughts, step back off that ledge, because there’s ONE creative solution you haven’t thought of yet: one that doesn’t just have the power to add a little recession-proof flame retardant to your income, but one that will continue giving you steady, predictable income month over month, does not require you to beat clients into submission (unless you want to, anyway😉), and is a foolproof way to kick more ass this year than ever—even despite a pending recession.
It's by creating and selling an online workshop—and it's way easier than you think!
You might feel "internet marketey" by creating and selling something online. But creating an online workshop is a good deed: you're helping the people who need your help in a convenient, affordable format. It's sort of like walking your Aunt Sally through whatever it is you’re freaking phenomenal at, except instead of your Aunt Sally it’s a woman you’ve never met from Idaho—and she’s willing to pay for your help.
In other words, she’s a client! Clients pay to get help they need, right? Normally you help them by performing a service on their behalf—their bookkeeping, their social media, their photos, their web copy—but when you give an online workshop, you help them in a different way: by showing them how to do it themselves.
You know: the whole “teach a man to fish” thing. Except they left one thing out in that story: when you teach a man to fish, you get paid GANGBUSTERS for it.
From a revenue standpoint alone, every single freelancer and small business owner in the world should offer an online workshop, and here’s why:
That’s never going to change, pandemic or not. You can help more people than you ever would be able to in a 1:1 format. (So, that's generous.) But you can also earn more by putting lots of paying clients in a room instead of teaching each one of them individually. (So, that's useful.) That math adds up.
Now, more than ever?
Online workshops are the best way to earn money during the coronavirus pandemic—and earn money that feels good to make.
An online workshop:
An online workshop is a superhero in tights—but most people haven’t even noticed it standing there.
But what if you could rescue your revenue, continue serving your clients, do it in a fun, creative new way, AND earn 3X more this year? And what if I promised you it was way easier than you thought?
(And what if I also hopped up bareback on a pony and yelled, “Yippee yi yo kayah” and then took off speeding down the race track with you next to me? I mean, I figured we should account for all possibilities.)
Learn how to scale your business the modern way (and virus-proof it) by packaging your knowledge and skills into an online workshop you can give from anywhere, to anyone, on autopilot. 💪
I mean, I really want that to be the tagline. I cringe when I see the word “ain’t” written anywhere. But didn’t I kind of have to write it there? Oh, let’s loosen up a little, shall we? Let’s live a little! And let’s show this coronavirus who’s BOSS. (Easy, Tony. That’s not your cue.)
You'll discover which types of online workshops sell the best—and which are almost guaranteed to flop. (Shhh, not all are created equal.)
You'll learn a process for filtering through your own ideas and deciding which topic you should teach (and which we can put firmly into the "dud" category. :)
You'll learn which information to include—and how to be sure people really want what you're selling.
What to name your workshop. (And which phrase you miiiiight want to leave out. What is it?)
What to price your online workshop. (Hint: do NOT price it too low.)
What to use to give your online workshop. (And which tools will tank your sales because they don't have this very important function.)
How to use urgency to sell your workshop. (Do this right, and you’ll knock it out of the park. $60,000 days, here you come!)
Tricks of the trade for preparing, delivering, and nailing. (#PROTIP: You won’t want to make these five mistakes.)
How to double your money from every workshop. (This is an advanced tactic not most people know about.)
How to resell your workshop as a replay. (And what only the pros know.)
And most importantly, you'll get 10 years of "do this, not that" shaved off your learning curve so you can go from $0 to $10,000 hours in just a fraction of the time. (Three hours, to be precise!)
