So, here’s a thought…Let’s say you’ve spent months learning about funnels and online marketing strategies.
You read all the books.
You consumed all the videos.
You listened to all the podcasts.
You’ve done all the work.
And… you continue to do so.
But, your funnel STILL is not converting.
The sales are not coming in.
Your product or service offering is not getting picked up.
Your revenue is not increasing.
And, in fact, you’re even going into the negative with your investment because you’re spending too much on… well, whatever. You know.
So, where’s the hiccup?
What is happening?
Why ain’t your funnel converting?
I have this theory…
The issue lies within your BELIEF – or lack thereof.
Yep, really, really, really deep down at times.
You do not believe in your product and that it can bring people the results you promise you can bring them.
You do not believe in your service offering and that you actually have the experience and expertise to make a difference for your client.
Above all, you do not believe in yourself.
And to hit the nail on the head:
You do not believe – if you’re really honest with yourself – that you deserve to make a nice income with your funnel(s) and create a rich life for you and your family.
If this resonates with you right now, there are 2 ways to work through this:
(1) Your product/service offering actually does suck and you need to go back to the drawing board and make it as great as it can be.
This way, you will automatically believe in it and the ‘sales’ and ‘selling’ part of things is not going to be an issue anymore.
Now, how can you go about improving your offering?
I recommend you go back to ‘the essentials’.
If you have customers and clients, talk to them and make sure you record the conversations (asking them before you do though, of course). You want to find out where they are still stuck.
What is slowing them down still?
Where did you not truly address their challenges and pain points they came to you in the first place for? Sometimes this could mean creating only a couple of additional lessons for your digital product – or, getting rid of some because they are confusing to your students.
If none of your students – that HAS gone through your course or program – has gotten results yet by now, you need to truly rethink the entire course that you have created.
If you are a service provider and you feel like your clients are continuously not one hundred percent happy with your services, you need to work on honing your craft further, darling <3.
This is the time to do it. You are only going to end up having lots of sleepless nights if you keep trying to sell your services of which you know, you can not one hundred percent deliver.
Surely, there are cases where it is your client’s responsibility why things aren’t working out for them. But if you see a pattern and really nobody is happy or is referring you or tagging your name on social media, this is a sign from the universe to take it slow and work on your craft.
Okay, next one…
(2) Your self-worth needs some much needed l-o-v-e 😉.
Now if this is the underlying reason why you are not getting any sales, you can solve by doing mindset work!
What does mindset work look like?
Well, it’s pretty much like if you’d be exercising. You need to be doing it on a consistent and daily basis (and yes, if you really have to, you can skip Sundays but I would not suggest you do that at the beginning).
Some form of mindset work can involve one – if not all – of the following such as:
Journaling, reading books in and around mindset topics, taking a positive program, hiring a mindset coach, getting into and practicing mediation, etc.
By the way and because I know you’re going to ask me, here is a list of my FAVORITE mindset books that were a true game changer for me:
Find out what type of mindset work resonates with you the most and brings about the desired changes.
And don’t forget, in order to see real change happening in your life, you need to be doing this consistently. Sooner rather than later, you will see your believe system change.
And if you’re still reading this, yes you my dear…
Let’s do this!
