Beta Testing for Huge Success

 

Well, I can’t believe it – but I am wrapping up the beta round of The Epic Success Academy with humongous…well, success! I am honored, humbled and beyond ecstatic at the response from all the participants who joined me in learning how to build an epic life and business that they love!

To give you a little bit of an inside look and debrief: Beta testing is a way to really learn how to serve deeply and make your academy or product it’s very best before fully launching. Whether you are an online service provider, business coach or brick and mortar establishment, creating a beta opportunity for your followers to take advantage of (whether it be free, paid or both) will help you work out the kinks and learn how to best serve your audience before releasing your “baby” out into the world.

 

In today’s podcast, I will be debriefing you on my beta process, including:

  • The benefit of surveying your audience.
  • How I found my participants.
  • How to Survey to get gold
  • The power of testimonials.
  • Plus, where I will go from here with The Epic Success Academy!

You can also download your free Beta Process Checklist by clicking here.

These are the exact steps I took to make my beta experience a success, and now you can make yours a success, too!

The Art of Facebook Ads: Interview with Rick Mulready

Paid traffic, Facebook ads and conversions, oh my!

If your ears have perked up (out of interest, curiosity or confusion), then I know you are going to love this week’s episode of the Epic Success podcast. I am honored that to have received the opportunity to sit down with Rick Mulready of The Art of Paid Traffic for our 25th episode, where he divulged so many golden nuggets and informational goodies regarding the power of Facebook Ads.

Rick started off in Internet advertising, working for big names like AOL, Yahoo!, Funny Or Die (“yes, I got to meet Will Ferrell a few times and he’s awesome.”, he says on his website), and Vibrant Media. He then took that experience in the corporate world to small businesses, and started guiding them in achieving success through the power of Facebook advertising.

In this episode of Epic Success, “The Art of Facebook Ads”, you will learn about:

 

  • How he went from the corporate world, to podcasting, to being a Facebook Ad master for small businesses.

 

  • Where you should start (especially if the words “Ads Manager” and “Power Editor” are foreign to you!).

 

  • Which Facebook features to use to if you want to start with organic reach before diving into paid advertising.

 

  • How to effectively target your audience when setting up your Facebook Ad.

 

  • Should you hire out to an Ads Manager or DIY?

 

  • What is an algorithm, anyway?

 

If you want to connect with Rick Mulready – and you SHOULD! – visit the links below from the podcast to learn more about how you can use Facebook advertising to boost your brand’s visibility on social media.

Lights Camera Branding: How to Build a Brand with Video, Interview with Tiffany Lee Bymaster (a.k.a Coach Glitter)

Live video is the hot thing right now in online marketing, and there is a reason for that! It not only connects us with our audience in a much more authentic way, but Facebook and other online media focus more of their attention on video and live video. This focus benefits those of us brave enough to push record.

Last week, we discussed why video is so important for our brand, and I want to continue that conversation in this 2-part series with Tiffany Lee ByMaster.

Tiffany built her career behind the scenes as a professional makeup artist, wardrobe stylist, mentor and educator working 1:1 with influencers and those in the public eye.

Faced with the desire to help more people by expanding her career to the online space, she realized that teaching about styles, equipment, and lighting wasn’t enough. Her tribe needed more – confidence, accountability, encouragement.

Tiffany has spent over 18 years working in fashion, runway, editorial, film, TV, print, commercial & video. She is also the creator of the online course & coaching program, Lights Camera Branding.

If you are still on the fence about live video, then this episode is for you!

In today’s episode, we dive deep into:

  • Tiffany’s story of leaving the comforts of being behind the scene to moving camera forward in order to build her brand and help her online community
  • Why you don’t have to have the perfectly developed brand or fancy equipment to start using video for your business
  • Why consistency and a willingness to experiment are the most important factors when sharing your content
  • The reason you shouldn’t wing your live videos and what you should do instead
  • How just getting started really can exponentially grow your brand

Building Your Influence with YouTube: Interview with Sean Cannell

Video online is becoming a powerful tool in the way we communicate online. On Social Media, video has become the best way to build a brand. For business owners, it’s a powerful way to connect with our audience and grow our influence online.

But let’s be honest, video can be scary! Vulnerability, seeing ourselves on camera, hearing the sound of our own voice – it’s hard!

If that describes you or if you are just getting started with video, then I have a treat for you today. On this episode of the Epic Success podcast, I interview Sean Cannell – a YouTube master who helps people build their influence, income and impact online with video.

Sean has grown his combined YouTube channel to over 574,213 subscribers between his 3 channels and well over 100,000 video views! That is a lot of influence. As you will learn, it lives on because YouTube is a search engine second only to Google, which is unlike any other social media platform.

Listen in to hear why it is so important to be on video and how you can overcome those fears to grow your influence online.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear:

  • How Sean went from video weekly content for his church’s youth group back before YouTube was even around to becoming a YouTube expert who helps others grow their business through video.
  • Sean’s best tips on how to start with video in a less vulnerable way to overcome your fears and practice being on video without ever loading anything to YouTube
  • Why you shouldn’t get hung up on the perfect camera or lighting in the beginning
  • How to get started on creating content consistently and intentionally
  • Why content on YouTube is more effective for your business in the long run over Facebook’s live video
  • How to optimize your YouTube video titles to make sure your content is being discovered
  • Sean’s own routine for preparing to record content and tips on how he crafts his content with story

Becoming Mom Strong: Interview with Heidi St. John – How to Raise Powerful Children in Todays Culture

It’s so easy as leaders to allow our entrepreneurial drive and all of the items on our to do list to overtake our days. This episode is a little different than most of my interviews, but for busy entrepreneurs, I believe this episode will be an encouragement to you on your parenting journey.

Today, I have the pleasure of interviewing Heidi St. John about her new book, Becoming Mom Strong. Heidi is a homeschooling mom of 7, podcaster, blogger, and author!

Listen in to hear about how important it is to be engaged and fight daily for our kids in today’s culture.

In our world, there are so many competing views and ideas available to our children. Heidi shows us the battle we are facing for our children’s hearts today and how we can win.

In today’s episode, you’ll hear:

  • What it means to be mom strong
  • How our culture can quickly sideline you as a parent if you aren’t careful
  • Why both performance based and child centered parenting doesn’t work
  • What matters most when parenting your children – obedience or heart
  • How to take responsibility for your own relationship with God and how that will significantly impact your parenting
  • How the enemy uses our own driven DNA as leaders to distract us from the important work of motherhood
