A Chance to Work with Me
Special Pilot Pre-Launch Offer
Hi there !
When I decided to start my own consulting practice in 1999, I built my business with referrals, but it was slow going. Outside of a small circle, pretty much no one knew who I was.
And not only was I mostly ‘unknown’, I was running a small business (think me and some part-time contract staff) and you can appreciate how little time that left me for business growth activities – like lead generation, networking and so forth.
But over the past 17 years I’ve hung in there and grown, and my secret? Systems. I relied on intelligent automation to manage lead generation, follow-up emails and even my social media marketing. Pretty much anything I repeatedly did, I analyzed and systemized through automation.
As some of you may know, I’ve been kicking around the idea for a while of creating an online course, structured specifically to share the most important things I’ve learned in the past 17 years building my brand and automating my business. As of today, I’ve taught over 16,000 people in more than 150 countries how to save time and make more money through automation.
But none of that came easily, and I’ve developed specific and simple strategies for putting my lead generation and follow-up on auto pilot. As a fellow SMB, I know you have value to share and I’d like to see more clients experience your business too!
In the past, there have really only been two ways for me to share what I’ve learned with you – either through reading my books, or doing private, one-on-one coaching. Both are great options, but reading a book isn’t always the best vehicle for figuring out how to apply the strategies to your own business. Personal coaching definitely does that, but may be out of the price range for some folks.
I thought an online course could be a good hybrid model – reaching people with more personal interaction and help, but at a lower price point. A buddy of mine suggested doing a small pilot before launching a full-blown course. So that’s what’s happening and I’m only offering this to 40 participants, because I want to keep the training intimate.
The Auto-Pilot Automation Course and What We’ll Cover
The pilot – based on feedback from various surveys – is about how to generate leads, follow-up automatically with email and automate your social media too. It’s a 30 day (4 week) course with weekly live webinars covering that week’s content, addressing any questions you might have and so on. You can get more details on the course page here.
When Is It?
I’m doing the pilot sessions for 4 Thursdays in a row, starting Thursday, Nov 16th at noon Eastern/9am Pacific (Nov 16, 23, 30 and Dec 7.) They’ll run at least an hour, but maybe up to 90 minutes apiece depending on your questions. There will be a high degree of personal interaction and every question you have will get answered. Also, if you can’t make a particular session or sessions, don’t worry: everything will be recorded, and if you send me questions in advance, I will answer them all.
Who Is This For (or Not For)?
Because the topic is about putting your lead generation and follow-up marketing on auto-pilot, obviously there are some professions where this matters a great deal. For coaches, consultants, speakers, authors, and many types of entrepreneurs or service professionals (realtors, lawyers, accountants, etc.), your time is paramount, so this is highly relevant information. If you work inside a corporation and feel that learning to automate these business functions would be beneficial to your career, this is also for you. If your main concern is, let’s say, selling a particular product or service, then this is particularly relevant for you.
How Much Does It Cost?
The pre-launch pilot price is just $699. If that figure doesn’t fit into your budget, don’t worry, because I’ll continue to offer more free resources on my website. But if you’re interested in putting your lead generation and follow-up on auto-pilot, and are looking for more personalized assistance than is possible from just a book or a video, I think this is a pretty good value.
What Will the Course Entail, and Why is the Pilot Cheaper than the Full Course?
The pre-launch pilot is unique. It’s small and personal, and I’ll be getting to know everyone who takes it. It’s collaborative, because we’ll literally be creating it together – ok, I’m actually the one building it but with your input. That means, if you’re wondering whether it will address the questions you have, the answer is yes, because I’m creating the course based on survey feedback, the issues of interest and concerns raised by the pilot testers.
That also means there’s a little more work for you as part of the pilot group. I’ll ask you to send me the questions of most interest to you related to the topic of the week, so I can be sure to address them. I’ll also ask you to fill out surveys letting me know which parts of the course were most interesting/helpful/relevant, and also the least, so I can fine-tune and adjust. I’ll be assigning “homework,” and you’ll get *a lot more* out of the course if you actually make time to do it. And finally, if you get good results from the course – and that’s very much the goal – I’d like to ask for a testimonial, so that others in the future can see if it might be a good fit for them.
I’m only opening this pre-launch pilot to the first 40 people who sign up. If you’re interested in putting your lead generation and follow-up on auto-pilot and would like to join me, it’d be a pleasure to work with you and get to know you.
