How to Adopt an Online Leader Success Mindset

There’s a strange disconnect in the online business world.

Have you noticed it too?

Online business owners tend to be introverts.

I mean, really … it’s the perfect job for an introvert!

You can do your work all by yourself without needing to interact with a single person in real life. Your computer screen provides comfort and cover from the world outside your doors.

And despite the fact that you’re working alone, your business can flourish.

But here’s the disconnect …

To really grow an online business, you have to be willing to step into the limelight and claim your authority.

You have to be willing to be a leader.

The 3 Stages of a Stress-Free First-Time Product Launch Plan

When most people think of their product launch plan, they think in terms of the first definition in the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Launch: to throw forward, hurl.

In this article, though, I’m digging deep into the definition of the word and highlighting a completely different approach.

Launch: to put into operation or set in motion, initiate.

Because your first launch of a new product is all about setting things in motion. It doesn’t have to be perfect.

Think of your new product launch as a “first draft” and keep it simple so you can get your new offer out into the world.

What is a product launch?

A product launch is a moment in time when you put your offer — your product or service — in front of an audience of prospective buyers.
It’s also an event!
The best product launches feel like a party. You let people know about your launch in advance to build anticipation. And you have a memorable time while it’s happening.
And … truth be told … you’re a little bit exhausted once it’s done. Just like when you throw a great party.
More on how to avoid total exhaustion in a moment. 🙂

How to Get Powerful Testimonials that Convince Even the Most Skeptical Prospects

There’s nothing getting a testimonial from a real-life customer that you can use to convince your skeptical prospects to do business with you for the first time.

Testimonials show prospects how real people have used your product or service to get real results.

Testimonials break down your prospect’s defenses because they’re easy to believe, especially compared to regular marketing copy.

After all, testimonials come from a genuine customer — someone just like the person who’s reading your page.

But …

  • How can you go about getting good testimonials?
  • How should you ask for them?
  • What format should you use for your testimonials?

This post will answer these questions one by one, and I’ll use testimonials I’ve gathered as examples.
