086: Getting Business Clients on LinkedIn 101 [SIDE NOTE Sunday - Business Basics Series]

May 24, 2020

Wanna know the EXACT SCRIPT I use to get clients on LinkedIn? It's all inside!

You know how to market your business on Facebook, IG, Snapchat, even TikTok! But what about LinkedIn marketing? Today’s episode is all about how to get clients with LinkedIn in 2020.

I’m super excited and passionate about this topic because LinkedIn lead generation is the reason I was able to grow and scale my copywriting business and leave my full-time job.

So I’m going to share the LinkedIn tips and tricks I learned along the way—and that I’m still experimenting with today—in hopes that they’ll help you as well!

083: The Secrets to Selling Services at Premium Prices with Jereshia Hawk, High-Ticket Sales Coach [Business Basics Series]

083: The Secrets to Selling Services at Premium Prices with Jereshia Hawk, High-Ticket Sales Coach [Business Basics Series]

May 5, 2020

"Stop trying to solve broke people problems." That's just one example of the many edge-snatching quotes I get to hear from Jereshia Hawk as a student in her signature high-ticket sales program, Services That Sell. 

Jereshia Hawk went from leading $400 Million pipeline projects as an engineer to doubling her corporate salary and quitting her job within 18 months of starting her online business. She teaches everyday side hustlers proven corporate strategies to specialize their skillset with a signature service and start their own six-figure-plus business online. She has helped hundreds of CEO’s start, grow, and scale businesses that go from generating anywhere from $4,000 to $25,000 a month in less than 9 months with her signature course, Services that Sell.

Jereshia teaches health and business coaches, content creators, designers, and consultants how to sell effectively, serve impeccably, and create consistent income so they can make an impact while earning income online.

She has received national media coverage in numerous print, online and top podcasts including Forbes, Black Enterprise, Diversity Inc, and more. She is a school supply enthusiast and Cold Stone Creamery ice cream lover. She lives in Detroit, Michigan.

 

In this episode, Jereshia talks to us about:

  • Who can and should sell high-ticket services
  • Why you don't need to follow the traditional sales funnel most online business "gurus" teach (Instead, FLIP the funnel!)
  • Why niching down and specializing is the key to selling high-ticket services (plus the non-monetary benefits of specializing!)
  • How to overcome the mindset barriers that can stop you from effectively selling premium services
  • How to overcome common sales objections

082: 4 Ways to Make Money from Your Skills [SIDE NOTE Sunday - Business Basics Series]

082: 4 Ways to Make Money from Your Skills [SIDE NOTE Sunday - Business Basics Series]

April 26, 2020

It doesn’t ALWAYS take money to make money. As a multipassionate person, you’ve got tons of different interests, talents, and skills. That means you ALREADY have everything you need to make MONEY.

You can profit from your skills, and most importantly, you can make money for free, with a service business or side hustle.

In this video, we’re going over 4 different ways to make money using your skills. And we’ll cover the pros and cons of each.

I’m Multipassionate Meg—a public health pharmacist, copywriter, podcaster, and an entrepreneur. I help multipassionate millennials (like myself!) find FOCUS so that you can finally start your own profitable business.

Episode 072 of The LaziMILLENNIAL Lounge Podcast for Multipassionate Millennials - How to Decide What to Focus on as a MPM: https://lazimillennials.podbean.com/e/072-im-multipassionate-how-do-i-decide-what-to-focus-on-side-note-sunday/

Once you’ve listened to that episode and done your homework, hopefully you have 1-2 chosen skills in mind.

Here’s how you can profit from those skills:
1. Done-for-you service
2. Consulting
3. Coaching
4. Teaching via a physical product or digital product

My suggestion? If you want to profit from a skill, go with a done-for-you service or a done-with-you service like coaching or consulting.

So what skill are you thinking about monetizing and which of the three service options would you prefer?
