No, but I have recently come to understand that I can help you better than I have been doing.
I thought that everybody understood the value of a marketing machine. That everybody got it. That everybody has one.
I was wrong.
And because I KNOW that the mere presence of a written marketing machine (plan) makes marketing so. much. easier...
I will provide marketing machine training for EVERY MEMBER as part of membership. Because I am not kidding about prosperity and profitability being our business here.
So when you come to me with marketing questions, challenges, issues, we will have a shared understanding of where you are. What you are trying to do. Your written marketing machine blueprint, MAP, and monitor will help me help you.
The new improved Profitable Marketing Machine Workshop starts on Tuesday. This 12-session series runs on Tuesdays and Thursdays through June 17. (We're taking a break the last week in May.)
We start at 8 AM Pacific sharp. Which is super convenient timing, because it won't interfere with your day.
There is NO CHARGE for members.
ONLY members may attend.
Attend any or all of the sessions live/in real time on Zoom.
No registrationis necessary (but you'll get email reminders if you register).
Every session will be recorded and posted.
Updated tools, examples, slides, etc. are also available.
See Session 1: Getting Started for the full syllabus: PMM-1
My bottom line: I will do everything I can to help you be successful. This is my strategy: Make creating a marketing machine easy, fast, and accessible. With the Profitable Marketing Machine Workshop for members only.
To your prosperity & profitability,
Your Virtual Marketing Coach
Does your Profitable Marketing Machine (PMM) need a tune-up?
If your marketing machine isn't yet profitable because:
it's not quite finished...
some flywheels are stuck...
you don't know why...
...it's time for a tune-up, or at least a refresher. Good news! The refresher overview happens on Thursday, and you're invited.
So if you're ready to forget random acts of marketing. If you're so over working too hard for too little return. And you just want to know what how to kickstart your own machine, this webinar is for you!
Join me for a second look at the Profitable Marketing Machine. What is the PMM? It is a proven mechanism for monetizing a product, service, information, or experience. In other words, the machine is a structure for turning your great ideas into income.
This webinar is a preview of what we cover in the upcoming 12-session workshop series. The next Profitable Marketing Machine Workshop starts in May. As a member, you have access to any or all of this live workshop's webinars, replays, and materials.
This week's preview webinar will help you see where you need to focus to get your PMM working for you.
Here's what we'll cover on Thursday (with some NEW materials!):
every single element of a functioning, profitable money-making marketing machine revealed
how the marketing machine saves you time, money, and effort
how to build a marketing machine that attracts new prospects, & keeps clients buying
how to scale up your marketing machine to double or triple your business
the complete list of tools you'll need to build your machine
a visual example of a real-world marketing machine
By the way, this is the perfect introduction to the DIY! So if you're new, this is the best way to start your membership in our community.
And if you want to tell a friend about the DIY, this is the webinar that will show exactly how we roll around here.
Super excited to announce the return of the Double Bonus referral program!
How it pays: Refer a new member to the DIY, and you both receive a $25 Mastermind Money bonus. Wow!
How it works: The bonuses are posted as credits to both accounts (yours and the new member's) in our coaching session app. The credits can be spent on private coaching or group coaching events such as VIP Fridays.
How referrals are counted: When a new member joins, there is a "Referred by" field. Whatever name is entered in that field gets the bonus. If no name is entered in the form, an email will be sent requesting the referring member's name.
In related news, a preview of the next Profitable Marketing Machine Workshop is next week. How to Design, Create, & Operate Your Profitable Marketing Machine happens at 8 AM Pacific on Thursday, April 29th. This webinar provides an overview of the upcoming workshop content. If you missed the original Marketing Machine class, you'll want to check out this new and improved version.
What's new with the Profitable Marketing Machine Workshop coming in May?
For starters, it is now a members-only program. The entire workshop is completely free for all members.
Registration is optional. Members may attend any, all, or none of the sessions, as they choose. Get the link: Marketing Machine Workshop
The new improved (corrected!) exercises, tools, and slides will be posted weekly. Fair warning: The NEW content will replace the current content (including video replays) as the workshop progresses. All the content, including the new video replays, is available for all members.
Forgive me if this is a little confusing. As you know, usually I mention the monthly webinar the week it is happening. But lately I've received some, well, maybe you could say complaints? Or at least comments that one week's notice isn't enough. Especially for those members who don't regularly check the website. Or the FB group, so they didn't know the webinar was happening.
These monthly webinars are an important feature of your membership. I want to be sure you have plenty of notice to reserve the time on your calendar. So here it is, a week in advance, and I hope this is helpful.
