How to hire and work with a Virtual Assistant This is a question I get asked all the time. “Amy, how do I know when I’m ready for a VA? And, how do I hire and work with one?” It’s a valid question, and if you’re serious about growing your business it’s one you should be asking.  I hired my first VA in 2011, and I consider it one of the best entrepreneurial decisions of my journey so far.  My first VA helped me take my business to the next level because her support allowed me to truly focus on the areas of my business that I excelled in. But I get it, it’s hard to know when you’re really ready for a VA, how to go about hiring one, what tasks to have them do, and when to uplevel your working relationship with them.  To help you get more clarity on those things, I’ve invited my dear friend and VA expert, Shannon Miles to join me on the show. Shannon is the owner and creator of Belay Solutions, a company that connects entrepreneurs with virtual specialists to help support their growth and in this episode, she’s sharing the progression of hiring and working with a VA.  Rate, Review, & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts ‘I love Amy and Online Marketing Made Easy.’ <– If that sounds like you, please consider rating and reviewing my show !

Because it’s been a minute since we’ve talked about podcasting as an entrepreneur… I decided to invite my dear friend, Jenna Kutcher, back on to have a little chit chat around podcasts, entrepreneurship, and how they work in unison to boost organic traffic.  Jenna is a fellow lover of online marketing, runs a 7-figure business, and hosts a top-rated podcast. In this episode, we talk about how a podcast can support your business in more ways than just generating revenue. We’re also going to give you some behind-the-scenes lessons we’ve learned as podcasters. Whether you have a podcast or are thinking about starting one (or maybe you haven’t even thought about it but I’ve piqued your interest), you’re going to get so much out of this episode.  A glance at how to use a podcast to drive traffic to your business [06:34] Jenna says that podcasting extends your brand in a way that isn't possible with social media alone. People are literally inviting you into their lives wherever they are.  [10:18] Jenna and I spill the beans on why we chose podcasts as our weekly platform.  [14:32] Any industry can benefit from starting a podcast -- yes, that means your industry too! [17:12] When first starting out, Jenna used her podcast along with content upgrades to convert listeners into subscribers by creating a new freebie for each episode.  [23:33] Jenna strategically plans out her episodes to tackle listener objections, shift mindsets, and educate potential buyers before she launches.  [27:08] When Jenna first started out, she asked a company she used called HoneyBook to partner with her to cover production costs. Learn her best tips for generating revenue when you are just starting out.

You know how they say diamonds are a girl’s best friend? Well, if we're being honest, I think you and I can both agree that creativity is an entrepreneur’s best friend… or at least it should be! But I get it! When there are other things that need to get done within your business -- especially when you’re starting out -- creativity can fall by the wayside.  Which is why I wanted to introduce you to a woman who is fierce, successful, and stays at the top of her creative game as the Creative Visionary of her business, Flourish & Thrive Academy. Her name is Tracy Matthews! But before she found the success, entrepreneurial satisfaction, and creativity that she has today, she experienced tough times that eventually led her to bankruptcy.  In this episode, we talk about creative energy, how to protect it, her journey from bankruptcy to a successful businesswoman, what to do about the nay-sayers in your life, and my personal favorite, the creative archetypes she’s identified, and how knowing this can serve you and your business.  Rate, Review, & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts ‘I love Amy and Online Marketing Made Easy.’ <– If that sounds like you, please consider rating and reviewing my show !

Entrepreneurship has been declining in recent years. Uh oh! I, for one, do not like the sound of that. However, after chatting with my dear friend and business mentor, Michael Hyatt, I’m starting to see how we can reverse this trend and why it’s most important that we do. Michael’s newest book, Entrepreneurs Will Save The World, is an invitation for anyone and everyone to step into their role as an entrepreneur. In this interview, we chat about his new book, a few traits every entrepreneur must possess, why entrepreneurship is one of the most essential things we need whether our economy is thriving or not, and my favorite, a step-by-step method for embracing entrepreneurship and finding a solid solution. Entrepreneurs Will Save The World Here’s a glance at this episode... [06:50] Entrepreneurs contribute to a better society. Period, end of story! Why? Because they are problem solvers, and problem-solvers are essential to our society. [09:03] Three areas that entrepreneurs contribute to society include, providing jobs and growth, providing tax benefits, and making people's lives better through the goods and services they offer. [21:26] One of the stages of the entrepreneurial method is to observe the problem particularly in regards to the customers or clients that you are trying to serve. [26:51] As an entrepreneur, you have to have a true desire to solve the problem. Ask yourself, “What am I uniquely qualified to solve?” [29:17] Pay attention to your motivation, this is important in order to succeed as an entrepreneur. [32:30] Hot Tip: Shift your mindset and start seeing problems as opportunities. ‘I love Amy and Online Marketing Made Easy.’ <– If that sounds like you, please consider rating and reviewing my show !

Pre-launch content, webinar content, and course content.  “How the heck do you differentiate these three areas of launch content? How do I come up with enough content for each part of my launch without giving it all away, Amy?!”  This is a question I get a lot! In this episode, I’m breaking it all down for you. We’ll talk about: Determining the bulk of your pre-launch content (and how listening can help direct you) How to leave your audience saying, “I’m excited! Now, how do I do it?” on your webinar The secrets to creating valuable course content And so much more! You’ll walk away with a clear understanding of how the content in each area will differ, build on one another, and what content goes in each phase.  Let's break down the episode! [00:02:55] Your pre-launch content is all of the content you create and share with your audience before you open registration for your webinar. If you’re still running your first few launches, I’d suggest running your pre-launch for 30 days.  [00:05:37] Your pre-launch content should help support your audience in overcoming any objections they might have when it comes to signing up for your course. You should take them on a journey over the invisible bridge.  [00:08:01] Hot tip: During your webinar Q&A ask, "if you're still on the fence, what's keeping you from signing up?"  [00:10:51] Your webinar should show your attendees what's possible and lead them to a new mindset. When creating the content, ask yourself the golden question, "What's the one thing my audience needs to know before buying my course?"  [00:13:35] The three sections of a webinar are possibility, path, and promotion. [00:18:01] Your course content is the step-by-step road map that transforms your students from where they are to where they want to be. [00:21:49] Think about what you're promising and lay out the transformation from there. How will you get them from point A to where they need to be?

Have you ever thought of a brilliant digital course topic idea, only to have a follow-up thought that it would never work online? Maybe like wine tasting, spiritual life coaching, or sex education? If you think these topics wouldn’t convert to a digital course -- think again, my friend! Because I have four epic examples of how my students have made something unexpected work magnificently online from the courses mentioned above. All it took was a little self-belief, a digital course, and the right know-how to get in front of the right people.  You’ll hear how… Andrea de la Mora transitioned her in-person spiritual life coaching online to generate $42,000.  Caroline Brown generated $20,000 on her very first launch, where she taught sex ed to grown women.  Natalie McLean took the physical experience of wine tasting online to generate over $30,000. Rhea Baliwala’s online course for Spanish-speaking lawyers made $13,000 out of the gate -- despite her audience's uncertainty around learning online.  My students prove that pretty much anything works as a digital course. Grab your favorite drink, get comfy, and settle in for these awesome stories.

My guest on today’s episode was a corporate girl turned overwhelmed entrepreneur turned entrepreneur with a thriving online business, a lucrative digital course, and the time and freedom to prioritize her family and make an impact far beyond what she ever imagined. Her name is Jamie Trull, her business is called “Balance CFO,” and you may remember her from episode #280 where I taught you how to do a “Course Validation Call” with her as my Ideal Customer Avatar. When we first met Jamie, she had left her corporate job to become an entrepreneur so she could have the time and flexibility to be with her little ones. But working one on one with clients only left her feeling overwhelmed, attached to her phone, and frustrated that she didn’t have the time and energy for her family that she had hoped to gain. After using the practices she learned in Digital Course Academy, Jamie launched her 5-week course, Financial Fitness Formula, which helps solopreneurs take control of their business finances, and ended up making five-figures. Maybe you’re thinking, “Amy, this sounds like me! Except for the 5-figure launch part. Teach me how to grow my online business with a successful launch!” Well, friend, I’d be happy to!

There’s often a misconception that you have to launch many times before you really start to generate significant revenue. While that may have been the story at one point and time, I’ve seen my students debunk that myth over and over again using the Digital Course Academy framework.  Today, I’m going to share four inspiring first launch stories from my students. You’re going to hear about: Eva Beronius’ $22,000 first launch Braden Drake’s first launch which generated $4,000  Chant’l Martin’s $5,000 first launch Melissa Groves Azzaro’s first launch that brought in $26,000 My hope is that you walk away from this episode knowing that if you have the desire in your heart to create a course and if you’re willing to do the work, you can generate significant revenue in under a year.

Hi Amy I love listen I g to your podcasts and find them so incredibly useful. I have learnt so much. thank you so much. I was wondering if you could do an episode on how to get people to join your new FB group, especially when it has no or few members. and I was also wondering why you don't talk about YouTube? don't you think it's a valid platform? And wouldn't it be anotjer alternative for growing lists? just curious

this was an amazing episode. I appreciate your genuineness. I am just beginning a period of my life in "putting it out there" and to be honest, am holding back because I am afraid of what people will think, especially those who know me personally. through this episode I am learning to just put it out there. Thank you again for your time.
