The Secret Key To Winning At Any Online Marketing Strategy

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.

Deep down. 
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.

Deal?

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:

(1)

(2)

(3)

(4)

(5)

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…

You. 
Are. 
Enough.

More to Life.

I was sitting in my school’s church and the song textbook slipped out of my fingers.

It fell to the ground with a loud bang in a moment where everything else was silent.

And that’s when it happened.

My heart started racing.

I couldn’t breath.

All the blood felt like it was first rushing to my head.

Then, drained out of my body.

My body felt wobbly.

Above all else, I had this urgent powerful desperate need to get out.

To leave.

Though it seemed as if I could not escape.

I mean, how can you escape day-to-day life?

 

Most of my life I felt numb inside.

It was as if I was living and having all these experiences but I never felt them.

I tried to analyze my feelings to their core and it was never enough.

Joy, didn’t feel like real joy.

Happiness was not there either.

And also sadness and pain didn’t feel real.

After all, what was I supposed to be sad about?

I had quite the normal life.

Sure my parents divorced but that is not out of the ordinary in our day and age.

Still, I started having panic attacks when I was ten years old.

I remember them so well.

 

I learned how to deal with them.

Without any type of medication or drugs.

I learned how to control them.

How to push through and thrive.

How to utilize the power of my mind.

Another thing that was like an escape to me, was to play the violin.

I could loose myself in one of Shostakovich’s melodies; while painting a copy of Monet’s Water Lilies; reading Agatha Christie or writing the next international bestseller (okay, this one has yet to happen 😉 ).

 

From all those things though, it was writing which offered me a resemblance of sanity.

Particularly writing about things I knew there was no immediate answer for.

Or maybe there was but I would not find it.

Not in a million years.

 

It took me a few more years – seven to be precise – to accept this.

To tell myself that it was okay to not know.

To instead, have faith in whatever was out there that determines our lives.

 

It took me a few more years to realize that that was not enough.

That you had to have faith in yourself.

Sometimes – and because I want to be honest here – I still struggle with that.

I struggle to not feel dull inside – to feel alive instead.

I still long to experience and explore life to its fullest – whatever that means.

I don’t want my life to be mediocre.

 

That is one of the reason the entrepreneurial heart beats so strongly inside my chest.

And I don’t believe what most people say that life is supposed to be.

I mean, how do they know?

No one knows me better than I do myself.

I know what I need and want.

Most of the time at least :).

 

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not always easy to go for that.

You have to go against social stigmas, deal with the occasional troll and feelings of feeling like an outsider.

People are always scared of things or people they don’t understand.

People that are different.

I guess it makes them question their own lives.

But I can’t stop and probably never can in my search for ‘there has to be more to life than we know‘.

Who knows what kind of answers I will find on my journey?

But no worries :).

I’ll keep you posted.

And who knows, one day you might decide to follow my journey of discovery?

A love letter to traveling…

Our time in Europe has come to an end.

With a somewhat heavy heart,

I start packing all of my things that I’ve acquired these past 4 months while traveling in Europe and South Korea – already planning my next few trips for 2018.


You see, one of the things that has got me totally hooked on traveling (and that has turned into a lifelong love affair) is the fact that every trip must eventually come to an end.

Traveling in itself has a beginning – the ‘planning phase’;

A middle – the ‘I’m enjoying my trip phase and counting the days until I’ll have to leave again’;

And the end phase – ‘we must now be getting ready to leave and start the next adventure in our lives.’

Every trip is final.

In its very nature, it makes you become excruciatingly aware of the countdown to your own life,

Or life in general.


And guess what?


There is a beauty in this.


Almost like a bittersweet beauty because you realize it with every fiber of your being while still desperately enjoying every passing minute.

You live and you are just not stuck in a rut or in a routine but you are truly thirsting to experience and make the most of life.


As such, I’d love to encourage you to plan your next few trips for 2018.

Be sure to dream about many exotic locations and have the power and the follow-through to actually visit them in person.

I promise you, your life will never be the same again ;).

You will truly have extended the horizons of what you thought could be possible while having a whole dang lot of fun doing so.

I dare you <3.
