The Rise | How to Grow Your Business to Multiple or Mid Six Figures

How to Generate Multiple Six-Figures in Your Coaching or Consulting Business

Hey Rock Star!

Today I wanted to check in with you and let you know about a new series I’m going to be releasing here. I’m going to be sharing with you the six step formula that I used myself and that I share with my coaching clients that helped me go from generating $30k a year before expenses (and by the way I was working pretty hard to do that)…

…to generating $30,000 months….even six-figure and multiple six-figure sales months. Pretty crazy really.

It’s totally possible. Many time when people come to work with me and my coaching programs, you already have a business, and you have clients which is great!

By the way, let me take a moment to say congratulations on all you’ve created, because it’s really not easy to do.

The thing is that it can feel hard to get up off of that base level of income & business… where you have one-on-one clients and you can’t figure out how to grow anymore without working more hours.

And odds are you don’t want to keep adding hours to your day with more and more private coaching or consulting clients.

It’s great to enjoy $8k, 10k, and $15k revenue months, AMAZING really, but now you might be ready to make that not just repeatable, but a number of jump off of into $20 and $30K months or much more!

If so, this is for you!

UPGRADE YOUR BRAND & UP-LEVEL YOUR INCOME

Here are the six steps I’m going to walk you through inside of the Rise Formula.

First we’re going to talk about how to upgrade your brand in order to up level your income.

This is a really important step and I don’t mean that you need to spend tens of thousands of dollars to re-brand your business. That’s the good news.

This is an however, an important step that I have all my clients do at least once a year. Because as you’re growing and up leveling we want to make sure that your brand is pointing forward to where you’re heading next (not left behind showing people where you just were).

So first we’re going to give your brand a boost.

DELIVER HIGH CONVERTING TALKS

A high-converting talk is something you can use online and off, and can repurpose across multiple platforms to give you a consistent and high-converting message.

Often times it’s very small shifts to the structure of your talk that can make a really big difference in your impact and ability to attract new clients.

Your talk is the one thing you need to convert clients without having to resort to an endless stream of strategy sessions. And while you’re growing this is going to be super helpful.

SCALE YOUR BUSINESS WITH ONE-TO-MANY PROGRAMS with LEVERAGE

When you have your Rockin Talk ready it’s time to really look at how to scale your income without scaling your hours.

So this is what we’ll talk about the best ways for you to grow your revenue, and the potential adjustments to the structure your programs for maximum impact and more leverage.

It’s important to serve your clients in a really big way, and at the same time, we want to make sure you’re not working more and more more more hours.

GET HIGHLY VISIBLE WITHOUT BURNING OUT

We want to add multiple six-figures to your business without blowing up your private life. We want you to have room for your spiritual life, family, friends, philanthropy, and all the things you love to do.

So we want to keep you highly visible throughout the year, but we want to do that in a way where we leverage one rockin talk, and repurpose it across multiple platforms.

This is where we really want to customize strategies for you based on what lights you up, what your strengths are, and what your lifestyle is like.

I’m a mom so I work from home. I do not travel a lot. I do not spend my life hob-nobbing from event to event. I speak at just a few events each year. I use online platforms to keep me visible, and I work mostly part-time, from home.

And I have clients who love to travel! And that great too. There’s no wrong or right. We just want to customize your plan and the platforms that you are going to use so that it will best suit your personality and your lifestyle.

SUPPORT YOUR BUSINESS & YOURSELF FOR MASSIVE GROWTH

We want you to be surrounded with support. If you’re trying doing this all by yourself… honestly that’s going to put a cap on your income.

If you don’t have the right level of team support and strategy underneath, lifting you and your business up, it’s just too hard to scale.

So we want to make sure that you have the right systems to make your team communication & project man

LEAP WITH A NET

Big leaps in life can feel scary, and that’s why support is so important to have support, and have someone on your side who is calling you up to your highest self. Encourage yourself. Fill your mind with positive voices. And surround yourself with people who believe in your vision.

You’ve got this!

13 Places (or more!) to Share Your Message When You Want to Grow Your Business

places to find speaking gigs that will grow your business

SPEAKING IS AN AMAZING WAY TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS
(EVEN IF YOU’RE AN INTROVERT)

And today I hope to expand your idea on what qualifies as “speaking”.

Because it doesn’t have to be a “speech” on a stage to grow your business. It can be. But today we have LOTS of options and platforms that we can leverage! So let’s put to em to use for you!

Speaking, at least as I see it, is any time you share your talk across platforms and places that work well for you, supporting your strengths, and reaching your ideal target. 

Here are places & platforms where you can deliver your client attracting talk, “speech”:
At a networking group
At a Chamber of Commerce
At an Association (consider industries that serve your clients)
At a live event or conference
At a meeting for a sales or management team
At a retreat or mastermind
At a workshop
On a webinar
On a podcast
In a video shared on You Tube or Social Media
During a Facebook Live
On TV
In a magazine or blog

That’s right, because once you design your talk so that it serves your audience in a big way, and attracts clients– you can share it in a leveraged way across multiple platforms.

If on a regular basis you’re sharing your love for your topic the right way (we’ll talk more about that later)…

If you’re giving talks, leading webinars, being interviewed on podcasts and radio shows, you’ll be in a great position to attract a steady stream of leads, clients, and business-building opportunities.

Right now, you have the greatest level of access there has ever been to high-visibility, business-building opportunities:

And again, here’s the great news, you only need one message or talk that we will repurpose for different purposes and platforms.

We want you out there having fun, teaching people, and inspiring them too. A little teach. A little preach. But you also want to attract paying clients.

So when you speak in a talk, an interview, a webinar— we want your message to feel like a mini-workshop.

It informs and entertains everyone, and at the end, it’s important that you give people the opportunity to step into deeper training. I want you leaving your talk not just with compliments, but with leads, and clients, and cash in hand.

  • Jen walked away with $16,000.00 in recurring monthly income, from her first talk ever.
  • Katherine built her business on the side (of her extremely successful wealth management business) and generated $8,000 in new private Wealth Creation Mentorship clients from a recent talk.

    And she’s also attracting more high end wealth management clients too! Ba-Ba-BONUS!

  • Christina attracted 4 new private clients from a recent talk and was invited to give several new talk and a paid keynote!
  • Marcia just had a super rockin $30,000 sales month!
  • Mary booked lots of local free talks and generated over $70,000.00 in 30 days.

  • Sandi’s first live talk generated $18,000 ($15k + 3 more in follow up) and her most recent webinar generated $8,000.00 in new sales.

  • Rob has kept his client roster full & filled all three of his programs for 3 years straight.

Now I can’t guarantee you results. I don’t know what training you’ve had. I don’t know how your talk is structured. In fact, its likely we haven’t even met yet! (Though I sure hope we do!) 🙂

So I can’t say these results are to be expected for everyone who steps to the stage. I’m just letting you its IS happening. And those are just a few examples. 

In a moment, I’ll share a resource to help you see how you can use speaking to take your business to the next level too.

But the first thing you want to know, is that any talk ***when delivered properly *** gives you and your business several gifts:

When you rock your talk right, you will generate C.L.A.S.S:

  • CONNECTION: The connection formed between you and the audience is more deep & loyal than any online connection you could ever create.
  • LEVERAGE: The beauty of speaking is that you can give one talk, and walk out with 10, 20 40,50, 100 new clients! Its possible. Imagine this… work once. Get paid MANY times.
  • AUTHORITY STATUS: You instantly go from a nobody to gaining expert & authority status. People see you as being bold for speaking, and that’s naturally attractive and magnetic.
  • SOCIAL PROOF: Your ability to move people into action is magnified by the power and proof that a live group-setting  provides. Tables of people deciding to buy together…everyone around can see the room responding to you, it is proof of your awesomeness! And suddenly the room is moving & buying as one.
  • SALES: Oh and let’s not forget the selling power of speaking. One rockin talk done the way I suggest will give you a
    rush of visibility, leads, and clients (even without any follow up).

    Ready to give it a try?

    Go ahead and pop into my Craft Your Talk Challenge and I’ll walk through 5 key steps to stand out (while being you), share your message, serve more people, and grow your business all at the same time!

How to Use Speaking to Grow Your Business

Join the 5-day Free Series & I’ll lead you through step by step from how to stand out, choose your topic, confidently deliver, and make money too.


Tips on How to Attract New Clients & Create a Quick Revenue Boost for Your Business.

how to add new clients & a pop of cash in the under 30 days.

So I have a new group of coaching clients joining the Rock Your Talk & Biz Club & it got me thinking about how to create a pop of cash in your business.

Because sometimes you just need a boost!
Or you’re ready to break a revenue record for your business!
Or you want some money for something special in your life.

And revenue boosts are also helpful if you’re just made a big decision to invest in something to grow your business.

That’s 100% awesome! Let’s go rock a little cashola your way!

Alright, so how do we create a pop a cash in your business? The best way to put some on bumpin tunes, and get into action!

CREATE A POP OF CASH RULE NUMBER ONE:
KEEP IT SIMPLE

When you just want to create a little pop of cash we don’t want to be like “OK we’re going to do a nine week launch, into a backflip, with an automated hootie-hotty.”

It’s way too complicated. It’s going to cost you a lot of money & time. So we want to keep whatever the thing is that you’re going to do to generate your income… really simple. So that’s rule number one.

IMPLENTATION JUMPSTART:

Start letting your mind wander to things you can offer that you already have done or can do without going too far into “creation mode”. Consider ideas like one new private coaching or consulting client.

Consider selling a few VIP Days. I’d love VIP Days as kind of a quick pop of cash.

If you’ve never done one before that just means imagine working with one person & you might hunker down in a room for the day and really knock some stuff out. (Often Mapping Out a Strategies or Plans & Done For You Services are a good fit).

Your VIP DAYS could be in person for the day. Like I have clients that fly into Portland for the day. And VIP DAYS can be virtual.

(Here at SpeakServeGrow I use Zoom for all my coaching calls, team meetings and VIP Days. It’s terrific!)

Quickie Examples of V.I.P. DAYS

So if it was your Virtual VIP Day, depending on what you wanted & needed of course…we might Uncover Your Brand Personality, Create Your Talk / Webinar Outline Structures to Sell, Craft a Rockin Entry Level Offer to Make During Talks & Webinars & Lastly Understand How to Use On Brand Marketing Materials Generate More Sales at Talks & Events.

Again a VIP day is a great offer where you just go in-depth with one person, and often you’re creating like a whole plan and a strategy.

If you were a health coach: You might assess where the person’s health is at. Clean out their kitchen of all that sugary & processed foods. Figure out a plan to get you moving. Etc.

If it was a wealth creation VIP DAY you could assess a person’s finances and goals. Create a plan to eliminate your debt. Reconfigure the savings plan so its automated. Imagine the progress you could make in one day with somebody! So awesome.

I always think of a VIP DAY as equivalent to three to six months of progress in a single day. So that’s a great offer when you’re looking for a pop of cash. It’s short terms, and delivers BIG IMPACT for your clients.

You could just be looking for private clients. Also fine! You could have a workshop coming up. I’ve a few clients who have a workshop or a retreat coming up in the next few weeks. Let’s get some butts in seats!

These are simple, short-term pops of cash ideas that we can generate that don’t require you creating fancy systems or funnels or launch sequences or anything like that.

CREATE A POP OF CASH RULE NUMBER TWO:
Look for simple ways to make your offer.

We’re not trying to set up complicated systems and launches and get 93 partners. Instead you’ll want to think of the simplest ways that you could offer it to people. And what I’m going to say next is going to sound deceptively simple so don’t overlook it.

WAYS TO MAKE YOUR ‘POP OF CASH’ OFFER:

Way to Make Your Pop Of Cash Offer #1:
Send Out Emails to Your List

I get it it sounds lame but trust me. So when I first hired a coach I wasn’t even in the training program yet, but I found this video floating around somewhere and she gave this tip (send an email) and I did it. And I got TWO PRIVATE COACHING CLIENTS.

Here’s a Quick Email Subject Line For Your Email:

I’m looking for three amazing __people you serve__ who want __(result you give)__!

EXAMPLE: I’m looking for 3 six-figure biz owners who’d like my help strategizing a profitable multi-six or seven figure live event this year!”

Have a “Call a to Action” in your email.

Please know that your call to action doesn’t have to be sending them to a sales page. Again we’re steering clear of complicated.

Simple Call-to-Action Examples for Your Email:

Text me the phrase “I want to rock my event!”

Click here to reply and say “I’m in!” or “Let’s Schedule a Session!”

You do not need to create a complicated way for someone to raise their hand & say yes to your offer. Always remember that.

Consider sending 3 teasers (getting people ready for it) and 3 sales emails inviting people into your hot offer basically saying here’s what I’m looking to do & who I want to help. Here’s why I’m looking to do it. Here’s the results I’m going to give you. Here’s what you need to do for us to get on the horn and chat to see if it’s a good fit for you. (pretty easy right?!)

Remember every email, every tip you send in this short sequence needs to be speaking to & relevant to your most ideal client for the offer you’re going to make.

Teaser Email #1: Big Problem you Solve for Your Clients & How You Struggled with It in the Past Too. Start with the most exciting part of the story. And end with a cliff hanger. (how you solved it…coming tomorrow!)

Teaser Email #2: Recap the big problem, where you left off with you hanging off the cliff… and now share the high-level solution (this is the THING you do for people/how you help clients). Think of sharing the high level steps or strategy more than details.

Teaser Email #3: Recap the Blue Sky/Big Dream that’s possible for your clients & share a tip, tool or free download to help them get started getting results.

Offer Email #1:
Share another tip or roadmap of success, and then offer people the experience of you walking them through this in a totally customized way and invite them to take action.

(Be sure to have a limit on the number of offers you have i.e. 3 coaching spots or 2 VIP DAYS and deadline y which people need to respond.)

Offer Email #2: Share 1-3 client or self success stories putting the steps into action…and invite people to take acti0n to create those results in their life or business too. (remind people of the limit and deadline)

Offer Email #3: This ‘last call’ message should talk about what holds people back (here’s a few common concerns that might be holding you back from taking action), and should be  rally cry for finally solving this problem and getting the help they need from you. Remind of the deadline and how to say ‘yes’.

Way to Make Your Pop Of Cash Offer #2:
Do a Facebook Live

Easy peasy! Pop up your phone on, & start connecting with your tribe, but don’t just sell, always serve first.
So simply take the email sequence above and talk it out loud! Woohooo! Now you’re rockin!
In this case, your call to action can be for people to comment with a phrase or private message you.

Way to Make Your Pop of Cash Offer #3:
Pick up the old telephone!

So any time you’re going to start a new program. Make a Dream List or you could call it a wish list. Start making a list of the kinds of people you know, specific humans that actually exist on earth, that you would love to be in your program. This is what I do too! Make that wish list.

Then literally reach out to those people and say

“Hey Brenda I’ve been thinking about you! And if you’re still interested in Rockin Your Talk here’s this new program I’m launching. Here’s why I think it would be such a great fit. Based on your goals and what you want to accomplish. Obviously I would love to get to work with you.”

You’ll shocked to find out how happy people are when you pick up the phone and tell them sincerely why you would love to work with them, the results that you envision for them, & where you want to help them go next based on what you know about them.

It’s awesome. It’s so personal and it really doesn’t happen often. So people will appreciate that you cared enough to reach out, as long as it’s true and sincere.

Okay rock star… time to get into action on some of these ideas.

What offer are you going with?
And how will you reach out?

If you’re in my Rock Your Talk & Biz Group Coaching Club, there is a whole hour long training in the Training Library called Get More Clients and will give more ideas on how to boost your biz right away.

If you’re not yet a client and you’d like my help beyond my more entry level information products, please message me and let me know you’d like to connect so we can rock your biz!

Let’s Get You Rockin!

When You Want to Up Level Your Income, 1st Upgrade Your Brand Personality


When you’re ready to up level your income to mid six-figures,
FIRST, you want to Upgrade Your Brand Personality!

But please don’t worry, to turn your message into a multi-six-figure business,
you do NOT need to spend $30,000 on a major re-brand.

However we do want to take a moment to think about how you want to represent yourself to ideal clients.
And we want to consider if you’re materials are showing people who you’ve been…
or where you’re going next!

There are 7 Keys to Stand Out Brand
SIMPLE: It’s easy to understand who you are and what you do
UNIQUE: There’s a unique twist to the way you do it that allows you stand out & add value.
POLARIZING: You are not trying to appeal to everyone. You know exactly who you’re for, and who you’re NOT for as well.
REPEATABLE: Your content has “take-aways” that are easy to remember and repeat. Catch phrases are sticky and help create community.
CONSISTENT: Your message, look, and feel stay consistent online and off which helps you stand out and be memorable in the mind’s of ideal clients!
MAKES A STMT ON POSITION: Your brand makes a clear statement on your position in the marketplace.
ATTRACTS THE RIGHT CLIENTS: And of course we want to do all this to attract the right clients for you and your Program/Product/Service.

Especially when you want to up level your income
it’s important to ask yourself if your brand and marketing
are speaking to the right level client.

Dig in deeper on this and the other key steps to take when you’re ready to move past your 1st $10K month into a mid-six-figure sensation! http://SpeakAndGrowYourBiz.com/rise
