- What will I charge?
- Where is my audience located?
- What time do I schedule?
- Who will be paying?
- How will I handle “back office?”
What are some of the marketing strategies?
- Negative titles sell.
- Creativity matters.
- Bullet point descriptions inspire confidence.
- Offer a “series.”
- Offer individual and group pricing..
- Make sure program is recorded.
How to fine tune your delivery?
- Think “training” – not motivational speaking.
- Find their pain and be a pain reliever.
- Tools, tips, techniques create value.
- Think anecdotes, not stories.
