If you have more money in your pocket, then I know you’ll do great things with it. So each week my goal on the Because I Can Life podcast is to help you to get more sales online so you can go impact the world in a bigger way. This week is no different and I think you’ll get a ton of value from what we are about to dive into. In fact, if you take action on this, it can drastically change your business.
But before we dive into that, let me tell you a quick story…
Why We Need To Make More Money
But it’s not just about learning how to get more sales online for the sake of getting more money. It’s about the good that you do with that money once you have it.
If you’ve followed me over the years, whether it’s the podcast, YouTube, or in the 0-100k Facebook Group, you know that I rarely share personal stuff that Jared and I do with our money. It’s never felt comfortable for me to share that. In fact, I re-recorded the beginning of the podcast episode about 5 times because it just didn’t feel right. But I think it’s important to share with you so you can understand why it’s important to understand make more money.
You might remember, in 2019 a huge hurricane came through the Caribbean – barely missing Puerto Rico – and devastating the Bahamas. We didn’t personally know anyone on the island when that happened but recently Jared was talking with a guy who shared some pictures of a family whose house was nothing more than a concrete slab with a tent on it.
Since we had the means to help them, Jared, with his big heart, sprung into action and quickly offered to get them mattresses. As the conversation continued, Jared found out that the two boys loved to play the trumpet so he began to look for ways to get them new trumpets.
The gentleman that Jared was coordinating with sent us a picture of him getting 6 mattresses and 2 trumpets on a boat and over to the family. That family ended up sending us a video filled with endless thankfulness.
That’s why you need to make more money – so you can serve more people. Remember, money is good.
How To Get More Sales Online – The #1 Secret
Let’s just dive into it. The #1 secret for how to get more sales online is… drum roll, please… putting more offers out into the world. Yea, probably not as spectacular as you were hoping for but it’s what works. Trust me.
The first thing that might come to mind is “oh gosh, Alison is telling me to have a ton of different products that I’m selling”. That’s not it though. How to get more sales online isn’t about more products, it’ about more offers.
I like to think of it like basketball. Maybe you’ve never played but that’s ok for this analogy, I think you’ll still get it. In basketball, the only way you can get points is if you shoot the ball. If you don’t take the shot, there is zero chance you can score any points – zero, zilch, nada. In business, putting offers out into the world is like taking shots in basketball.
The more you shoot the ball, the more comfortable you get. The more you shoot the ball, the more likely you are to score. But it all starts with just shooting the ball – aka making offers for your products.
How To Get More Sales Online – Types of Offers
The dollar-value discount is one of the most common ways to get more sales online, and it’s a type of offer.
- $10 off for $50 purchases
- 25% off the entire store
- Free shipping
- Submitting products to marketplaces
- Releasing new products
- Retiring products
These are your normal types of offers that you see in most online stores. If you want to stand out though, you might want to spice it up a bit. One that I really like is instead of “Buy One Get One Free”, position the offer differently as “Buy One Ship One To A Friend For Free”. This small tweak totally changes how the consumer is going to view it. There are endless other examples of this, some of which we cover more in-depth in the episode, so be sure to listen if you want to hear them.
Promoting Your Offers
First things first – realize that the old saying “if you build it, they will come” is a myth. When you build it, it’s then your job to make sure the world knows about it. And there are so many ways you can begin promoting your offers. Some of them will be super simple, while others will be more complex.
- Emails: One of my favorites is an email list. It’s like your personal little ATM machine.
- Social Media: Post about your products, with great pictures.
Now, if you’re sitting there like ‘well, that’s easy for you to say I don’t have either’. Guess what? I didn’t have them either when I started, so do what I did…
- Influencers: You don’t need a mega-influencer, just target the micro-influencers.
- Marketplaces: There are tons of marketplaces that you can leverage for your products.
- Collaborate: If you are in the 0-100k Group, find someone in a complimenting niche.
Don’t expect everything to work but know that there is something that you can learn from each experiment of figuring out how to get more sales online. You’re going to find the one channel that works best for you, and then you need to double-down on that.
How To Get More Sales Online – Simplify The Implementation
With all the options for types of offers and ways to promote your offers, your head might be spinning with overwhelm. But it doesn’t have to be. The trick to rolling out new offers is batching.
You want to have multiple offers out there at the same time but you don’t want to go crazy in the process. What I want you to do is block out time on your calendar, at least 1-2 hours once a month, to schedule out all of your offers for the next 30-days. I want your goal to be 30 offers for 30 days.
The next thing you can do to simplify your offer creation process is to leverage the power of compounding. You’ve heard of compounding interest, right? Well, this is the same but different. If you put out 5 offers and only 2 of them work, then I want you to take those 2 and combine them with the next 5 that you put out. So, now you’ve got 7 offers out there. If 4 out of those 7 work, then you combine them with the 5 again and now you have 9 offers out there. You just keep repeating this process to leverage the power of compounding offers.
If you can start putting more offers out into the world, you will get more sales. But if you never take the shot, you’ll never have the chance to score. Are you going to take the shot?
There are so many examples in the episode that I didn’t cover in this blog, so make sure you go listen to the full episode to get all the goodies.
- Thank you Bev and Alison!by help would be nice! from Canada
Absolutely incredible podcast. Thank you ladies for being real, clear and motivating. So empowering. A true testimonial to “Because I Can!”
- Scaryby irenesq from United States
Yup! Alison is scary...not in a bad way though. Its all in a good way. Why? Well, first of, I think Alison is not only an e-commerce expert but also has a psychic ability. I am only on the fifth episode of her podcast, and listening to it made me think like, “how does she know what I’m thinking?” All the fears and self doubts and negativity. She talks about life experiences that are relatable. Somehow whenever I listen to her, she connects with me like as if she was talking to me. I just love her and really blessed to have found her and be part of her clan. Thank you Alison!
- Inspiring & Amazingby DoohikeyDesigns from United States
Alison is the real deal! She’s real as she inspires you to reach your best life. She gives you glimpses into how she has made multi dollar million businesses. Alison was called to serve others to help others reach the dreams we have always wanted to achieve. She inspires to help us Rise Up to what God wants us to become! It just keeps getting better and better! Wow! Today’s episode in February is amazing! Literally I sell wholesale and know what it takes. But now I’m wanting to really create more retail sales and I have since being in your program! Loved the episode that you did of Puerto Rico and why you moved. I loved how you testified of how God works in our lives and if we trust him we can do anything. Thanks for being a light and a mentor to me. It just keeps getting better and better! Especially today about making offers! Sometimes we don’t always think of the little things it make offers daily to weekly. I know I can amp up my orders and I will be digging deep this week!
- Clear advice to give you confidenceby MintBillyCat from United Kingdom
I love this podcast so much-it is my favourite I’ve found among all the business podcasts. It’s targeted at women who are at home with kids or in a job dreaming of running their own business and making more money. Alison is really relatable, clear and supportive in her advice & delivery and there are tons of good nuggets here for any aspiring or active mumpreneur.
- Inspirationalby Greenwichound from United Kingdom
Some of things that Alison discusses in her podcast are really simple. But sometimes you need it laid out in these terms for it to just go in. And go in it does. Meaning you leave each episode full of confidence and aspiration with a check list of to do’s or things to try out. She shares information bombs that others in her position would never share (fear of giving away their secret sauce) and every step of the way you feel like she’s championing your specific journey. She is golden and this show should be in the library of everyone thinking or currently doing Ecommerce. Keep it up Alison! X
- Fantastic, just Fantasticby 2shopornot from United States
I just went back and caught up on all the podcasts and can I just say I should’ve done this a long time ago! The content is so clear, Alison brings in guests that are so willing to share.

- Very optimistic and useful!by AJM.44 from United States
I find these podcasts useful, filled with good tips backed by her experience. She’s also very optimistic and makes me feel like I can do it! Which is why I want to get started! Ok Alison, this question is for you - I want to start selling online in an effort to fund my college education! Obviously I don’t have a lot of time, and more than that, I don’t know where to start lol! Do I create a Shopify store? Do I start selling on someone else’s site (and whose?!)? Do I do a ClickFunnel thing?!

- Life changing!by Future CEO MR from United States
I bought your course last summer right in the middle of taking graduate courses to increase my salary lane as a teacher. No need to say that the increase in salary has not made any mayor changes. I always had the desire of doing an e-commerce business but did not know how to start. I still have not taken the time that I am supposed to dedicate to the course, however these podcasts had filled me with the courage I need to start doing it. Thank you Alison for your words of wisdom every Tuesday.

- Episode 15by -akoboe from United States
Loved this episode and how broken down and step by step the details were. Question for you: How do you decide on a business name and shop for an e-commerce store if you don’t have a niche? Or do you only recommend opening a store for those who do? In the beginning, you sold a lot of random things that didn’t relate to each other, so did you use third party selling websites to sell or did you start your own store and how do you do that without a specific product or niche?

- Love Alisonby EricaWoodbury from United States
I absolutely loooooove Alison and her emery is so contagious! ❤️
- Hopeful:)by Polka. Lover from United States
So far I’m really excited about this podcast....and hoping it doesn’t all lead to what so many other podcasts I’ve listened to have, which is “I’ll tell you just enough to get you excited and start to believe you can do it, but to really start to change your life it’s time to pay for the membership/course and if you can’t afford it that’s just an excuse”. I’ve become a bit of a pessimist in the self-improvement journey while trying so hard to get started but not having much cash to do so. I’m that mom stuck living credit card payment to credit card payment which doesn’t exactly leave money to get started. I’m hoping this podcast is what I’ve been searching for to guide me on how to finally get something going that will bring hope and real change for my future. I love Allison and I have faith that she’s who can help me change my life!♥️

Holy cow- Alison I can feel your energy through my phone as I listened to your podcasts today! I’ve just recently stumbled across your Instagram and even two weeks ago watched a webinar by you as well. I can not tell you how much I feel like you are talking to me, yet I feel myself hearing you, as if I am the one talking. I have felt for a long time that I have something bigger than me I need to do to help people but like the lady in your podcast with the epi-pen, I’m kinda closer to that side of things right now. BUT I feel like I am on my way and I hear your passion for helping people. I can’t wait to listen to more of your podcasts and see where this will take me in the future. Thank you for sharing your loving heart with others.

- Treasure Trove of Expert Goodnessby linescrew from United States
If you're looking to learn about building a successful online business, following your passion, and drive from a real person who practices what she preaches, this is the place! Alison is passionate about others successes- you can hear it in her voice. Against her norm of staying out of the spotlight and working behind the scenes Alison pushed past her fears of putting her face out there to follow her inner drive to teach others how she has been uber successful in several online businesses. She is still active in maintaining several online businesses and has taught me (and thousands more) how to build our own businesses. She is unselfish and wants success for all (and teaches how to do it without going into debt!). She gives so much to help others build their own dreams. Alison is the first mentor that I have found that doesn't hold back in sharing each piece to the complicated puzzle of successful business practices from idea to distribution to customer care. She doesn't promise magical overnight success- but gives you the keys you need and reminds you that your success depends on your dedication and hard work. I can't wait to see what her future episodes bring. Thanks Alison, for overdelivering yet again.
- She’s Changing Lives!by TaraGlutting from United States

- Info needs to be consistentby joness59 from United States
I missed that you mentioned the link to your bundle at the beginning of the podcast. At the end you mentioned the site is becauseicanlife.com/bundle. This is an invalid URL. I spent time trying to figure out the link until I saw it posted in the notes of your podcast. My feedback is to make sure the info you provide is consistent. Other than that it was a real good podcast. Hope this was helpful. Stephen Jones (your old Boise neighbor)

Alison is the real deal. She doesn’t just preach and leave us on our own. Alison works her online business right along with us and teaches from her own experiences. She shares the highs and lows and gives us the tools we need to succeed. She is kind and welcoming and supports us even when we feel we are failing. The community she has created for us to find like minded people who want to make a difference is the best group I have ever been a part of. I love that she is always up dating her course that we have life long access. The fact that she takes the time to do FB lives a few times a week where she is open to all our questions is remarkable. I am grateful I found her. It doesn’t matter if you are just starting out or a seasoned business owner, Alison offer something for all of us. Connie Leonard

- All Entrepreneurs Must Hear Thisby seesnow99 from United States
I’ve been following Alison for a while now. I bought into her 0-100K system. My store is up & running thanks to her & a lot of hard work. If you want to have an e-commerce business & have the best support team ever, look no further. I’ve done tons of webinars & online research. Nothing compares to what I have learned from Alison. Her online Facebook group is nothing short of phenomenal. You can post your struggle & ask for help. Five hours later, you come back to loads of encouraging posts from fellow “clanners” who have been there & they’re offering helpful advice. I have been in her course since May 2018 & have watched her course get better & better. That’s because she’s constantly adding to it. The best part about all of this is that Alison is genuine. She really wants to see her students succeed. This podcast is just another way to encourage us & all of you at the same time. I’ve met her in person more than once & her sincerity is more than evident. Sit back & enjoy the podcast! Better yet, take that jump & come join us in the Because I Can Clan!

So happy Alison has launched this podcast. So refreshing to find parent entrepreneurs who are crushing it in business but at the same time being REAL, TRANSPARENT, and VULNERABLE about what it's really like to build a business with a family (without sacrificing the family)! So many families out there are struggling working 9-5 or more and still unable to provide for their families. Alison's journey is a tremendous inpiration that it doesn't have to be like that and as a Entrepeneur myself I'm looking forward to some solid advice and tips through this podcast. Thank you Alison!!

- Alison Prince WALKS THE WALK Like No Other Person I Knowby Supreme Dragon Slayer 69 from United States
Full Disclosure. I met Alison and her amazing family just a few years ago and in that time I have witnessed an incredibly humble person step into even more of her greatness. This is someone who chases Impact over Significance in everything she does. In a world where most “big marketing gurus” who just yell louder to be heard and rely mostly on manufacturing celebrity to become a house hold name... Alison has been actually walking the walk for decades. She is family focused. She is heart centered. But make no mistake. She is one of the most BRILLIANT Marketers and Business Builders in the world. She had proven herself time and time again on her multiple businesses in multiple niches. All. From. The. Ground. Up. So yes. I know her. Which makes me qualified to write this review bc if you do have an opportunity to ever meet her in real life, feel good knowing she is the same in real life as she is on this podcast. Dave

What if you never shoot the ball? What happens? You are 100% of always getting zero there's no absolutely zip zero zilch way you can even score if you don't take that shot. Now that's how putting offers into the world works out into the business world right? If you shoot you increase your chance of making those points if you shoot more you're gonna feel more comfortable

Hey, this is Alison All right, today's podcast episode, I'm gonna give you the number one secret to getting more sales. Why do I want you to have more sales so that you'd have more money in your pocket? Right, but I know that's the cliffhanger. But before I tell you the number one secret to getting more sales, I need to tell you why I think you should get more money in your pocket. And that is because I know you're going to do good things with it. So let me back up and tell you a little story. Now usually I don't talk about giving and the stuff that God And I personally do because for us, it's very personal. We love to be the ones that secretly surprise people with things. We love to be the undercover secret givers. So for me sharing this story, I've actually recorded this podcast like 15 times because I don't normally talk about this. And so it kind of makes me a little uncomfortable because Jared and I usually do things in secret. That's just what we've done. That's how it has felt really good to us. But I feel like this story really ties into the message of why we are supposed to make money. And because we tend to do really good things with it just like you do, currently. Okay, so, Jared and I, we have the opportunity in Puerto Rico, to hear a lot of firsthand struggles on what is happening with Puerto Rico, the island and then the surrounding islands as well. Now, some of you know that last fall, a huge hurt Hurricane came in miss the island of Puerto Rico and bombarded the Bahamas, just completely wiped houses off their foundation. And Jared was talking to a guy the other day, and he was showing us some pictures of this family. And their house was the concrete slab. The house was completely gone. And it was a concrete slab. And there was a tent on it. And that is what they have been sleeping in since last fall. And of course, Jared with his big heart says, What can we do? What can we do?
And so they were trying to figure out what this family needed. And they said they needed mattresses and so Jared’s like here, here's some money, go figure out let's figure out a way to get them some mattresses over there. And then he kept talking. He's like, what else do they like to do? What else do they need? And there came the story of how these two boys love to play the trumpet. And so Jared said let's figure out how to get them trumpet. And so a week later, we get this picture of this guy who figured out how to rent a boat and get six mattresses on it, and get them over to the island with the two trumpets. And then the next video was this family just expressing their gratitude smiles from ear to ear, on how excited they were. And Jared stepped up and said, Here's the money. And then the other gentleman stepped up and said, Let me help you make this possible. And this is the reason this is the reason why we're supposed to have money. This video filled our hearts so much. And it's a reason that we need to make money so that we can help serve other people. I can only imagine that mom who has four kids, I have four kids. I can't even sleep on the floor of a carpeted room. My hips hurt so bad and she was sleeping on the concrete ground. And so I feel so blessed over and over that the Lord has given me so many opportunities. And I have leaned into it and said, Yes, show me how to do this. And he said, here's the path, go, go, go go, so that we can create money so that we can give to other people. Money is good. And I want you to get more of it. And maybe what you want to do with your own money is keep it so that you can serve your own family so that you're not so stressed every single day living paycheck to paycheck, live over the crush of bills or credit card, whatever that may be right? serve your family, you have the opportunity to make money, then maybe one day you want to be able to start giving it I mean, think about it when you have a sick neighbor, and you want to send them dinner to help lighten their load. Have you been to the grocery store lately? It's expensive, right? Money can bless lies that can bless your lives and so many other lives. So I want to share with you the number one secret so that you can make more of that beautiful money. You ready for it?
I feel like we need a drumroll here. So back your mind do your drumroll because here we go. Number one thing that you can do to make more money in your business today is create more offers in your business. All right, the bells and whistles and confetti probably we're not going off right there. Right? That's not really like a sexy thing. Creating offers. I mean, that takes work, right? You got to put yourself out there you got to figure things out. But guess what, if you're not putting offers out there, you're not going to be able to make any money. So what I want to do in this episode is I want to talk about why offers why offers are so powerful in your business. Then I'm going to give you specific examples of the types of offers. then number three, where to put those offers out so other people can see them for them to be able to buy your stuff. Number four, I'm going to give you examples, the number five, I'm going to give you the two steps on how you can triple or even 30 times the number of offers that you put out there in the world. All right, let's dive into number one. Let's talk about why offers why offers are the thing that can help bring more income more sales into your business. Now, let me clarify first, when I say putting offers out into the world, I don't mean having to have a whole bunch of different and lots of types of products out there. Okay, so let me explain. So I think of it like basketball. Let's say you're on the basketball court for some of you, it's gonna feel natural, because you play on a regular basis or for some of you, it's gonna feel completely abnormal. Because the last time you picked up a basketball may have been elementary school, but either way, you know the basic rules right? shoot the ball. If the ball goes in the hoop, it will create two points. If you miss, you get zero. So what if you're on the basketball court? If you played doesn't play doesn't matter, right? What if you never shoot the ball? What happens? You are 100% of always getting zero.
There's no absolutely zip zero zilch way you can even score if you don't take that shot. Now, that's how putting offers into the world works out into the business world, right? If you shoot, you increase your chance of making those points. If you shoot more, you're going to feel more comfortable. If you haven't shot for a long time, maybe you've never even shot. It might feel awkward at first, but you do it again and again and again and you start to feel more comfortable with it now. So I'm going to challenge you to keep shooting, keep shooting right down how many shots you want to take how many offers Do you want Put out there in a month, maybe it's your first month and you're like, you know what, I'm gonna feel comfortable with just getting on that court and shooting once. Great, you are better than you did last month. For some of you. You're like I'm doing for a month, I need to increase this and you're gonna start doing one a day, whatever you feel comfortable with. Great, write it down, then I want you to double it so that you feel uncomfortable lean into the uncomfortableness because when you start to push your limits and get a little bit uncomfortable, I'm not talking pain. I'm talking a little bit uncomfortable. That's when you start to see growth. Okay, so I want to dive into specific types of offers. Now remember earlier how I said you don't have to have a whole bunch of different products. Okay, I'm gonna dive into that. So I was sitting at an event and next to a guy named Russell Brunson, and someone in the group stood up and said I need to create another product. I need more product and Russell looks over and says Why do you need to create more products? You've already got really good ones. And they said, Well, I just like I need another one new thing for my audience. And he said, I have been selling the exact same product for six years, six years. We just have different types of offers to run everybody to the exact same product. And it was, I think everybody in the group was like, Whoa, aha, like the light bulbs are going off like crazy. So I want to show you the specific types of offers that you can do in your online store. Okay, so here's some of them.
You can do $1 value discount, let's say it's summer, and you want to give $10 off for $50 purchases or more. That would be considered an offer. Or maybe you want to do 25% off your store. That's an offer. Maybe it's buy one, get one free, maybe it's a free gift, maybe it's free shipping. Maybe it's submitting your products to different markets. Place type sites, maybe you're putting out a brand new release into the world and saying, Get this brand new release before it sells out. That's an offer. Maybe you're taking old products that haven't really sold and you want to retire them or take them out of your store. You can go out there and say these products are retiring. That's another type offer. Now this is where you can watch what other people other stores are doing. And take notes, and you can step into creativeness. So here's a small example. I'll get into the examples in just a second, but let me explain on that. So if you're doing a buy one, get one free. That's great. What if you change it to buy one? I'm going to ship one to your friend for free. As a consumer, I'm thinking Oh, buy one, get one free crate, but do I really need to have the same product but if they're saying Hey, I'll get one and then you're going to ship one to my friend for free. So I can send her a gift. Maybe it's I'm thinking about you gift, maybe You've been stuck inside for so long, I want to give you a gift to make them feel like you're thinking about them, then the whole warm fuzzy, you start to feel right. Like that is what you can do. You can take that typical buy one, get one free, and make it a little bit more creative. This is where you get to watch others how they're doing it. And I'm not saying copy, I'm saying be inspired on how it just doesn't have to be the boring bow and get one. Right, liven it up a little bit, but with this same concept of these type offers. Okay, so where can you do this? So let's say you've got that buy one gift one to a friend for free, right? You've got it all typed up, it's on your site, but you don't know what to do with it. Right? If you listen to some of my other podcast episodes where I tell you if you build it, they don't come. Remember you've got to send out invites. You've got to let people know that you are having this party that you're doing this amazing thing of you going one step further and shipping it to a friend The world needs to know about it. If you're stuck in your head, and you're not telling anybody about it, it's gonna stay stuck in your head and no one is going to be able to take you up on that offer. Okay, so I want to tell you some of the places where you can actually put your offers out into the world. Number one, your emails. If you have an email list, I'll tell you what emails are your ATM, emails are your friend. Collect emails, I say this over and over and over like a broken record, collect emails because this is a cheat. I call it a cheat where you can start marketing your products, your emails, yes, you have to pay the email provider, but you're not paying huge commissions, or even 50 100% split with other like Facebook or ads or places like that, like emails are your biggest moneymaker. send out an email. Let them know what you're doing. Another one posted on your social media. Write, post it on your Facebook, post it on your Instagram. And if you're like wait, Ellison, I don't have emails, I don't have social I get it I didn't even want I started. What do you do influencers? Find influencers that can start talking about your product. And if you say, Hey, I am afraid to go after the big huge followers for them to even they won't acknowledge me. You're right. They don't acknowledge me. I have reached out to plenty of influencers who have completely ignored me. I don't go after the big huge influencers. I go after the micro-influencers, the ones that are smaller, the ones that I can grow with, when I started my pillows business, I worked with an influencer that was tiny, and we grew together and now she's selling thousands and thousands and thousands of dollars for me. And guess what she's telling a lot of other people No, because she gets so bombarded but because we grow together, she has been super loyal to me. So influencers start small. That's it. best place to start anyway. Imagine if you got a huge influencer, let's say you got Taylor Swift to advertise whatever it is you're selling, maybe it's a pair of those earrings, right? And she says swipe up, go get these earrings, and you'll get a million orders. Like that money would be so cool. But to actually fulfill on a million orders within the three-day shipping window, it would just be a mess. And you wouldn't be able to fulfill it and it'll be a hot mess. You grow your business, one order, and 10 orders, then 100 orders, then 500 and then you build up because that's how you build a business. You don't want to be that overnight sensation of selling a million overnight it will kill you. It will kill you faster than if you don't grow. Okay? be okay. With one order at first so you understand how to ship so you understand where the money is deposited. My very first cell I had no clue where the money went. didn't even know if it was going into the right bank account. And so those $200 my very first sale of that $200 I'm so glad it was something manageable. So I could watch the whole process, okay, now, okay, that's where the money is. I didn't even have it approved, I had to get it approved. So it could land in my bank account, then I had to figure out, Okay, now that I have the money, how do I ship? Where do I ship? Where do I take these packages, all that kind of stuff. So be okay with starting small, okay, another place that you won't put an offer submit to marketplaces. There's a lot of marketplaces out there that want to sell your product. They may tell you no, that's fine. Don't let it stop you. Okay, another thing, swap with your business friends. If you're in the 0 to 100 K system, you kind of have a whole bunch of business friends in there that are all about in the same area of growth, contact another business friend, I did it with one of my good business friends when we first got started with the pillows business and I said, Hey, I'll swap an email and advertise you if you swap an email on advertising. For me, guess what it worked. We made bank on that it was such a win-win for both parties involved for our business for their business. And we put our offer out into the world pretty fun, right? I geek out about this so much because it is so powerful. It is so powerful putting offers out there into the world works is every single offer gonna make it? No, I've had plenty of bombs, plenty of putting an offer out into the world and it was cricket city. Heck, it was like an infestation of crickets. Nothing happened. But I took that information. I said, Okay, that does not work. That does not work at all. Let me switch it and let me try this. And then I started to see sales. If I were just to put offers out and say okay, they're gonna work. Like shame on me. I put an offer out to say, Is this working? That's what I do. Oh, it worked great. Let's keep going with it. And then another offer okay. Didn't work. Okay, let's not put that one out again. Let's switch it up a little bit. All right, so we've gone over why offers, the more shots you take, the more money you're going to make no offers no money. Okay, second one is the type of offers. And then the third one is where you can put those offers out into the world. That's just a handful of them. But now I want to dive into examples. So let's say you sell cupcake liners, and you have some red ones you bought for Christmas and guess what they did not sell out. Are you going to wait 365 days to sell them again? No. Sell them again for another red holiday. We've got Valentine's we've got the Fourth of July. What else? national watermelon day. Better Way to serve up watermelon than in a red cupcake liner. Right? I check a site for strange holidays. Check. id.com is one of them. You can Google strange holidays and you're going to find out All these creative holidays that you can tie your products into. Now remember, the most creative doesn't win this game, the most resourceful wins. So let's say you're selling pens, or let's say you're selling socks, or let's say you're selling shoes, whatever it is you're selling, go over to Pinterest and start typing in things. Maybe you've got red shoes, type in red shoes, and see what comes up. And if you're leaning to a holiday, maybe it's national give blood day, right? And you're like, I'm here to support the red, all the blood drives out there with some red shoes. And this is the deal that we're going to have. Being able to have conversations with what's happening in the world, whether it's a holiday, whether it's a discount, whatever, you're trying to create conversation around the products that you sell. So go back does that old inventory that you're like, hey, that product didn't sell you know what it is? Just might still, maybe it's the way that you talked about it. Maybe it hasn't been incorporated into the holidays, switch it, tweak it, change it, just like the red cup cleaners for Christmas, that you're able to sell a Valentine's or the Fourth of July, or national watermelon day.
Okay, what about new shirts, they're cute, I get it. But if you're not offering that goodness out to the world, it's just gonna collect some massive dust. send out an email that says we just got these new shirts in order now to get the best sizes. Not all offers have to be discounts. Your offer is just putting the opportunity out to the world for people to buy your amazing product. Then you can take that same messaging, you put it on Instagram, same messaging, put it on Facebook, that same messaging with another influencer in two days. Then you've got email, Instagram, Facebook, influencer number one influencer number two, you've got five offers out there. Same product. Same messaging, different platforms, different places that you've sent out those invitations to come and let people buy from you. Alright, let's say you want to get to seven, there was five there, right? What about working with another company that selling Pants and Do shout outs for each other? That other company can say, look how cute this new shirt is with these pants. And I got these shirts from so and so right? And then you say, Okay, we've got these cute new shirts in. Look how cute these pants look with them. I got these pants from whatever. Alright, so that's two more offers that you're putting out there. First day of summer coming June 20. Celebrate with a breezy shirt. Now you're looking to offer number eight, right? It's the same shirt. You're just tweaking the messages, you're using different platforms and you're going from that one offer of new shirt, get the best sizes to expanding it and being able to take seven eight shots versus just One shot. Keno. What about if you're selling jewelry? What about Friendship Day, Mother's Day birthday boxes. This was a really good marketing offer. Alright, I've got four kids, and my kids have friends. And they would come home with birthday invitations all the time and say, Mom, I've got a birthday party in 10 minutes, I need a gift. I usually didn't have time to go buy a birthday gift in 10 minutes. And so what we did is we had a birthday box. And so whenever a kid came home and said, I've got a birthday party, Mike, great, go to the birthday box, choose the present and then you can go to the birthday party. It kept the stress in our house so much lower versus loading up the car seats, taken dinner halfway cooked out of the oven because I didn't want it to burn. Right. And so I went out there and I told that story. Stock up that birthday box relieve this stress of being the one that doesn't have a gift at the last minute. And we had people by twos threes, fours and fives to help stock up that birthday box. Okay. If you don't have kids and don't really do birthday boxes, what about a thinking of you box? Right? We all need people right now today know that they're thinking about us The world is kind of crazy. Oh it's kind of crazy. So when is the last time that you thought of someone randomly and shipped them something? I honestly think that thinking of you gifts are the absolute best gifts ever. It's not a forced gift giving like a Christmas some of you know I don't like the obligatory gift giving I just Christmas is
I like Fourth of July. tell you that right there. But I love them random thinking of you gifts, because I believe that's when you're truly thinking about that someone and it comes from the heart. Just the other day. We had a friend ship us some inflatable ducks. It was from a joke that we were talking about. She's like just thinking about you have some inflatable ducks. We got laughing so hard. You know what? best gift. I love it. I'm still smiling about it. So you can start telling those type of stories, right? When's the last time you surprise your friend? When's the last time you told your mom, thanks for all the sass you gave her as a teenager, maybe now's the time to let her know. I'm going to give you a couple of more examples. I hope you're okay with examples because I love I love when I'm listening to someone else and are giving me specific examples because it helps me to just sit and listen and absorb it. So I can get my creative juices running. So okay, here is another one. So I was at an event and this doctor got up and she was talking about how she's an advocate for doctors, because she has seen how high the rates of suicide are. And and she gave all these stories and all this example. And as I was sitting there, it reminded me of how much I appreciate my My personal doctor, our family physician, she is phenomenal. And it made me think of all the stresses that I hadn't even thought about that she goes through to keep me and to keep my family healthy. And so I went home, and I went and I sent her some flowers. And I got a message from her. And she's like, I've never had flowers sent to me from a patient. Thank you so much for thinking about me. And in my head. I was like, Oh, I can't believe what she's gone through this whole everything to keep me safe. And I'm so grateful for her. Then in Puerto Rico, I went out and I bought a few things from Puerto Rico, and I sent them to her just as another thank you because she shows up for me to keep me healthy. Okay, so I've got this story in the back of my mind. then guess what I look up what June 9 is today what June 9 is for the unique holidays and it's call your doctor day. So yes, some people may say okay, call your doctor and get an appointment. But I see it from The past experience that I had about how amazing my doctor is so what have you took that sir? What have you told that story of how much you appreciate doctors, especially right now? the unsung hero them wearing face mask in getting the bruises on their faces to keep us all safe, right? And then you put out a gift that focuses on doctors, maybe one that focuses on gifts and saying when's the last time that you've told your doctor how much you appreciate them for showing up for you to keep you healthy?
You think that would sell right now? I'm gonna let you decide on that one. Then Friday this coming Friday, guess what it is National marriage day. Could you serve up an offer around then? One of my students named Lisa she celebrated her anniversary and she said because it's my 32nd anniversary. I'm going to give all of my customers a 32% discount in my store. Guess what? It was her highest selves. Her highest sales date. Ever, ever. Do you think she's gonna be celebrating her 33rd anniversary with her customers? You better believe it. See how you can weave stories into conversations that help you create offers that seem unnatural, right, that aren't super salesy that aren't super pushy ones that you feel comfortable putting out into the world that people will connect to. And remember, if you're not creative, it's okay. God gave us Pinterest, use Pinterest, look at all the ideas over there, go to some national holiday site and start searching. What are the holidays for next week? What are the holidays for next month and you get your customer start thinking about that random holiday that pulls at the heartstrings for them to be able to serve the people in their world. All right, I've got one more example because that I want to give you because it was such a heavy hitter. It worked so well for the holiday. It sells. And guess what? I know we're sitting in June, holiday sales are going to be honored or step pretty darn soon. So during the holidays, what happens? loads of offers come in, right? And people don't want to wait. I mean, Disney spoils us, right? There's a reason why they sell fast passes, so we can skip to the front of the line. So I was sitting there and I'm like, Hmm, I wonder if I can do some type of a fast pass to my customers. So I sent out an email and I said,
skip to the front of the line. If you order in the next 48 hours, you are going to skip all of the holiday sells all the holiday promotions, and you're going to get pushed to the front of the line, and we're going to get your packages faster. It was one of our biggest email promotions we have ever done. And you know what? It wasn't about huge holiday discounts. It was about pushing people to the front of the line.
People love to be put to the front of the line.
How do you feel if you would ever expect variances, you're in the back of the line, someone comes and says, Hey, come to the front of the line, you will feel like a rock star, right? You can do this with your customers as well. And you don't have to discount the price of your product. You're just making them feel amazing by moving them to the front of the line. All right? Is your head spinning? Your head maybe spinning now with all of these ideas, so you might just be like, I'm gonna shut it down. I can do all this. I know, I hear you. I get it. It's probably because you have 1000 things already going. And you're like, how can I add more to this? So let me simplify this. I want to help simplify this process for you, so that you can actually implement this and get more sales coming in. Alright, the secret to implementation is something called batching. Okay, so hang on with me right here. If you try and come up with these ideas, these offers on the fly You might be late for the holiday and talk about serious stress, trying to think of what to do the day of life's constant stress, right? You don't need to add marketing biz into the mix. So I want to give you the two steps to help you to make this happen in your life. While it does not give you the gray hair. All right, so batching let's go back to the batching. All right, when you make cookies, think about if you just made one cookie at a time, you'd have to pull all the ingredients out of the cupboard, measure it all up, mess up all the dang bowls, measuring cups, teaspoons, tablespoon, heat the oven and cook one cookie, and then clean it all up. A waste of time. Right? See where I'm going with this?
We see the silliness in baking one cookie at a time. But sometimes we struggle seeing the silliness of trying to put out one offer at a time in our business. What a waste of time right? You see her I'm going with this Don't you don't cook one cookie at a time you're going to cook dozens of cookies at a time. Maybe you're even going to do more. So you can freeze a cookie dough in the freezer, and then you can keep pulling them out for an entire month. If we can see the silliness of baking one cookie at a time, then why do we think it's a good idea to put one offer out there at a time? I mean, just think about it. You're pulling open your documents, you're pulling open your inventory, you're seeing what you have, you're pulling open the crazy holiday schedule, then you cook up your offer. And then you have to clean everything up, right? kind of silly. Let's start batching let's start cooking up dozens of offers at a time. This is why it's called batching. Now, you sit down maybe it takes you 30 minutes, maybe it takes you an hour, but I'll tell you what, it's gonna save you a bajillion hours over the month, sit down, block out the time. I call this power hours. You're gonna sit there, and you're going to work, like there's no internet tomorrow. And you're going to schedule out as many offers as you can possibly feel comfortable. Well, maybe a little uncomfortable with over the next month. Yes, I said 30 days, imagine sitting down for 30 minutes to an hour, maybe the first time it's gonna take you a couple hours. It's okay. You'll get faster at it. And you're going to book out the entire next 30 days. 30 days. And if you're a little bit of roaring in the background, my husband is weed eating outside. Good, man. Good man. That's what that sound is. Okay, so let's get back to it. I want you to pull up your holiday schedule. I want you to pull up the products that you have your inventory. I want you to pull up your Google calendar or your because I can life planner. You're going to block out two hours, one to two hours. And then you're going to start putting designing developing creating cooking up those 30 offers and guess what? You've got them all for an entire 30 days. So a gal named Bev schweickart. She's actually coming in next week. I'm going to dive into this a little bit more. She was posting one offer a week and wanted to get more offers coming in. And so she heard me talking about you got to put more offers, you got to take more shots. And so she did a challenge and said, You know what, I'm gonna do 30 offers in a month. Bev had her highest sells, I don't want to spoil next week's podcast because it's amazing. But you're gonna dive into how powerful this is. And here's a little hint, she's four timesing what I made as a school teacher in a month, it's pretty amazing how this works. Okay, then we move to number two. Okay, so the first one was to sit down and batch your work, batch out as many offers as you can do in 30 days. Okay, then the second thing this is the beautiful Have you ever heard of compound interest? Probably right, you can actually compound your offers. I've got another gal who's doing hundreds of offers a month, she's hitting well beyond the million dollar mark. Now, she did not do this over night. This is what is called compounding offers. So let's say you plan out the next 30 days. And then you let those 30 days run, you have 15 offers that convert and 15 offers that bombed, okay, you're going to scratch out the offers that didn't work and leave the 15 that do and you're going to run them again. So when you come in back next month, or next year, if they're time sensitive, and plan the next 30, then you're actually going to have 15 offers for the month. That is how they compound and so maybe you're starting at four offers in a month, and you're like I can handle four, great, do the four and then your next month, you're going to take the two that worked and then the two that didn't work, throw away the ones that didn't work, and they're going to add four more and then you're at six and then you're Do the next month, throw away the three, keep the three, and then you're gonna add four more. And then you're at night you see how this compounds over and over with time, you've already done the pictures, you've already done the pricing, you've already done everything. You've done the hard work, let those offers start working for you. Alright, so that's how you can get them implemented into your life, batch your work, and then start compounding those offers. Whoo,
that was fun. I love offers of offers. Alright, so what I want to do next is I want to pull out some of the key pieces for you. I know you probably already took a whole bunch of notes. I hope you did. And I hope you have your brain just on fire with all the goodness of ways that you can sell the same product and different ways to put the offers out there for you to make that shot. Make that basket Okay, so number one, I talked about the types of offers that you can put out there. Number two, where to put those offers for people to See, number four, how to leverage what you've got by being resourceful. Remember, you don't have to be creative. You don't have to have everything. You just need to learn how to be resourceful use what you got. Number four, tell us stories. Stories are so much easier to talk about and feeling like buy my product. I'm right, no, just tell stories. And then that soldier products for you. Number five, you don't have to buy more inventory, sell what you have, it's good. You may be sick of it, but others are new to it. Number five, if you've already got inventory, sell what you have. It may be really good. You may just need to be doing different types of offers to help it to sell. Now if you're like, Alison, I'm so tired of trying to sell this thing. You know what? remember the first time you thought you were excited about it right? Others are going to be excited about it too. You're probably just talking about it wrong. Get out there. Switch the offer. Keep going for it turn what you have into cash. Number six is your head spinning. Number six is your head spinning. It's probably because you're doing too much I want you to listen to episode number 26 about why you can't make decisions and then block out time and implement your power hours. Number seven plan the next 30 days of your offers. Number eight, document it so you can compound your offers year after year after year. Number nine get out of your head. Remember, you don't sell stuff. You sell products that change people's lives. Yes, the cookie Gleaners. You may just think that they're paper liners but it's the thing that keeps that Baker sane for the next day because they didn't have to wash out the pan as they're rushing to the school bake sale with two toddlers screaming and the dog barking. Your products matter. You matter. You can change lives when you step up, get a little uncomfortable and take those shots. Take those shots. Okay, now, get out there. Go be great, because I am cheering you on. All right, I will see you next week.
