Are your skills holding you back?Oct 10, 2021
An old friend sent a FB message: “Hey! Long time! Need to update my LinkedIn bio ‘cuz I’m working on a promotion/new job. Can you help me?”
Hmmmm, I’m great with writing & words. I excel at pulling ideas out of people’s minds & making it sound just like them on paper.
Maybe I should offer this service?
Another friend suggested I network with non-profit leaders to offer content audits - because their messaging is often off-target.
Ooohh, I’m great at breaking down why something isn’t working & show people how to tweak it to make it work.
(Toot! Toot! There goes my own horn!)
Maybe I should spend time on this.
I knew my SKILLs could lead to TONS of varied offers:
content audits · writing sales pages · creating home pages · generating email series · etc. etc. etc.
But any time I tried to offer one in the marketplace, I felt paralyzed…
Too many “I offer this AND this AND this” was confusing - even to me!
What do I help people achieve?
What work do I LOVE doing?
What lights me up?
Do you know the answers to these questions for yourself?
(Why are these questions SO DAMN HARD?!)
Instead of assessing “What skills do I have?”, I NOW ask, “What problem do I want to solve?”
No longer seeing myself as a set of skills, I have a solution I want to bring to the marketplace.
What’s the problem I want to solve? Content confusion & overwhelm.
I want to change the belief that creating marketing content is an all-consuming activity.
I solve this problem by teaching customized ways to make content easy AND do the heavy lifting in their business
- without confusion or overload.
My clients go from creating content by the seat of their pants…
Content that nobody’s looking at anyway -
to being a content marketing powerhouse using a personalized content strategy, content vault, & content system that works exactly right for them!
Are you that clear in YOUR offers?
I decided I ONLY work with people who WANT to bring THEIR voice in THEIR way with THEIR message into the world -
This means -
- If you want to hand over your email marketing to someone - I’m not your person!
- If you want me to write your sales pages FOR you - I’m not your person.
- If you want to use pre-created scripts to plug & play into your Instagram posts, I’m not your person…
This has alleviated…
- Hours mulling over new offers to generate dollars
- Endless marketing + sales pages + pricing for numerous offers
- Expending energy doing work that depletes me
Letting go of seeing myself as a set of skills has freed me up, incredibly!
It stopped me from thinking I must do ALL the things I have the skills to do!
Now, I focus on taking people from Their Problem to Their Solution - and I only do it with 3 offers:
- The Content Creator’s Membership $47/month
- The Mastermind - small group coaching program $1200/month
- The Your Signature System Program $3500 (beta pricing)
My offers, pricing, marketing, sales process are streamlined -
But most importantly - I HAVE MORE TIME & ENERGY.
My brain no longer entertains “What if I offered this?” “Where can I squeeze THAT in?”
Do you want that kind of clarity? That kind of peace?
Design your own Signature System - which we also use to generate 6-9 months of content!
Check out the program here & set up your Q&A Discovery Session.
TL;DR: It’s time to stop offering EVERYTHING & streamline. You don’t need to do MORE to achieve success…
We can show you HOW, if you’re ready for support!
PPS: Here’s a sample from a Signature System:
