Ideas Worth Sharing:
‘’So I really didn’t have a good idea of where to start to improve this whole system. And I was kind of mainly focused on driving the traffic. So, if you talked with me a couple of months ago, and I was thinking about scaling my business and hiring help – what would that look like? Well, it would probably be trying to hire more writers or more people that could create content. Today that’s probably not one of my top three priorities. So it kind of shifted quite a bit.’’ – Dennis Moons
‘’Going through the course and starting to email people more, I’ve kind of shifted my perspective on having people on an email list. You’re not running an email list to run an email list. The email list is a part of your business.’’ – Dennis Moons
‘’I always try to pack a little bit of value into every email. So that, it’s not just: ‘’Hey, discount and discount buy now, buy now, the course is closing’’. You need to kind of balance it to a level wherever you find it more comfortable.’’– Dennis Moons
‘’People don’t think about the fact that it’s actually possible to do something, where you can take an existing course and break it out into smaller sections and sell those bits individually, which then gives you the opportunity to have more offers that you make to people without having created more training.’’ – John Ainsworth
‘’I think going through the course has really helped me to get the foundation in place. Also, knowing what is the first thing that I need to put there just to do have something in the foundation, and then start going through it again, start optimizing different bits.’’- Dennis Moons
