Rank #1: 264: Are launches still working?

Podcast cover
Read more

Launches can be kinda scary…

We've all seen the ones that are wildly successful and launches that don't work at all.

The pie in the sky dream launch stories followed by complete dead in the water disasters.

And both make you want to run for the hills and never utter the word launch–much less actually try to launch something of your own.

But if you haven't launched yet – you should know something. Launches often don't work.

But why??

If you are just starting your business, trying to gather the courage to launch your first product or service, you might be wondering why launches seem to work for only part of the time…or maybe they just work for a small majority of people.

Rank #3: 112: What's Really Stopping You From Launching?

Podcast cover
Read more

Shouldn’t come as a shocker here…

Most people have at least one thing that stops or delays them from doing what they really want.

When it comes to launching, the blocks can crop up the second we get an idea for a product, when we finish a product, when we talk to someone about it, and pretty much every single step up to and through the launch process.

I invited my friend Denise Duffield Thomas to have a conversation about these blocks, because she’s in the middle of her own launch right now for her long-running Money Bootcamp.

If you suspect you have some blocks holding you back from launching, today’s episode is for you.

Not sure? Delay and procrastination are huge signs of blocks. So get yourself over to our conversation.

Did you know that some of the most powerful launch strategies are ones you can pull off even if you are launching for the very first time?

Rank #6: 057: Leadership skills you need to run a successful business

Podcast cover
Read more

You own a business. 

Maybe you have a team. Maybe you don’t.

If you’re making money from your business, you’ve got customers.

With all the challenges of running an online business the biggest one I can think of where people get in trouble and the reason why your business goes downhill are those related to your leadership skills.

So, if you have a business, plan to make money, want to build a community, and perhaps eventually have a team to help you run everything, then you are on the path to becoming a leader.

...Whether you like it or not.

That said, many people start businesses without having much practical experience in a leadership role anywhere in their life.

We’re thrown into the role of boss without a day behind the wheel ever!

So today’s episode covers some of the things you need to consider and be aware of as you set off to start, finish, deliver, launch...and take very intentional action every single day.

Let me ask you a question… and be honest with yourself...

Do you truly believe in yourself? Do you believe you have value to share? Do you believe you can figure out how to use all the online tools to deliver something to people you’ll call customers?

Do you think your ideas are worthy? Do you think you are good enough?

Do you think that you are experienced enough/pretty enough/the right age/etc. to impact people?

Do you think you can stick to a schedule or a plan? Are you confident you can deliver this week’s newsletter?

How do you react or respond when your “plan” goes off the rails? When you can’t do something on your own?

If you want to know why asking these questions is important to your next launch, listen today.

Rank #8: 182: 5 Key Steps To Planning Your Launch (that are easy to miss)

Podcast cover

You are so ready for this.

The dates are on the calendar. Team has been hired. Pages are being designed and developed. Everything is moving forward - and you feel great. Confident that you’ve thought of everything to make next launch a success.

You planned it out. Took the time. Talked to your ideal customers.

One of the best things you can do for yourself right now is to ask - Have I missed anything? Do I have all the information I need?

After years of working on launches of all sizes, I’ve seen steps get missed that impact the entire launch. These aren’t necessarily mistakes, but they do effect how smoothly things are running...and are often discovered after the doors are open--when things are a little harder to fix.

Today we’re talking about 5 key steps that are so easy to miss because we don’t see them as steps in the launch planning process.

Listbuilding is one of those things you should be doing no matter if you're launching or not AND if you have an online based business.

Yes - reaching new people should be something you’re always doing...now, you can have ongoing list building activities and systems in place. That’s great. Keep those flowing.

That’s why my main focus in between launches is to keep reaching out to new people...finding new, effective ways to turn those into list building systems, and use tools like Leadpages to keep the whole thing easy for me!

Rank #12: 107: Write & Send Better Launch Emails

Podcast cover
Read more

I don’t care who you are…

Communication can be challenging when you’re first starting your business or marketing new products.

You’re not sure what to say, when to say it, how to say…

And then there’s the question of sending emails and how many to send...and how often.

Overwhelm and worry can set in fast...all the sudden you’re unsure, insecure…

Add a launch to that anxiety and you’ve got a recipe...and you might feel immediate paralysis.

You’ll question every email you send, worry you’re scaring people away, get angry when people don’t respond and more!

Rank #13: 200: How to Go From Planning to Doing

Podcast cover
Read more

I’m curious about something...

Actually a few things...

  • Are you a planner?
  • Do you plan things out, check off the boxes, and never miss a step?
  • Do you like to map out broad strokes without a ton of detail?
  • Do you find yourself taking action on something every single day?
  • Are there days/weeks/months in between your action (especially as it relates to what you want to launch)?
  • Do you often postpone your launches?
  • Have you never launched because you weren’t sure what to do first?

So, you don’t actually have to tell me the answers to these questions (unless you want to), do it for yourself.

Today’s 200th episode is one that dives in deep to how you can get better at not just planning (your launches, your life, your business), but how to get better at following, DOING, and completing the plan.

Rank #15: 226: How To Create Marketing & Launch Copy That Produces Actual Results With Christine Blubaugh

Podcast cover

How important is writing effective marketing and launch copy to your launch results?

If you’ve ever had trouble writing copy, creating a sales page, writing the emails, or simply figure out WHAT TO SAY…today’s episode is for you.

Writing marketing copy can be one of the most challenging parts of the entire launch process.

Why? Because it’s not something you just master and then you’re good to go.

It’s a practice you need to keep doing, keep getting better at, keep honing...all through your business.

That’s why many seasoned entrepreneurs and business owners hire expert copywriters to help them write their sales pages, their emails, and even their social media messages.

Today’s episode is a recent Facebook Live conversation with one of the smartest sales and launch copywriters I know!

Christine Blubaugh is also a second-time co-host on the podcast. When I find amazing people, I always try to keep working, collaborating with them….so I had to bring her back!

Ever thought of creating or launching a physical product

I have...and it shouldn’t surprise you that about a year ago I was entertaining the idea of launching a planner! After a few months of materials research, I made the decision to stop that process...and said, “nope”....I wasn’t ready to go down the road of manufacturing, choosing paper, testing, finding a printer.

Only a few short states away, my friend Briana who had been creating different types of products for years for her spa and massage clients (we’ll get into that in the episode)...was in the process of creating HER own planning system...one that included dreaming as an integral part.

She and her husband co-created the Rituals For Living Dreambook + Planner to assist people ready to transform their lives into something free, happy, and successful.

Rank #17: 174: How To Be Enchanting & Magnetic with Sally Hope

Podcast cover
Read more

Let me ask you something…

How would you like to be more magnetic and attractive?

Not just in your daily personal life, but in your business. How would you like to put out products, webinars, do Facebook Lives...that attract more of the right people - people are so aligned with who you are and what you do that they can’t help but want to be around you.

If you’re not sure...ask yourself if you’ve ever felt oddly drawn to someone online - in your industry...a teacher, a business owner, a celebrity. There was something about them that drew you in...right?

We can all use more magnetism when we’re launching. Not so we can unnaturally pull people toward us but to make sure the people who do mesh with our message - find us, buy from us, and join our world!

But where do we get started?

Today’s guest is Sally Hope - creator of the Wild Heart Revolution and Life Coach, Yoga instructor, community building expert...and creator of the 40 day Meditation Challenge.

Ever have a week that left you feeling overwhelmed, behind or questioning – did I actually get anything done?

We all have. Sometimes it feels like productivity is a moving target.

Having Simple & Streamlined Launches Is NOT Impossible: Here’s why

This week, we're going to talk about the dream of the streamlined and simple launch.

Which is funny, because it's so easy to make our launches harder than we need to.

Even though we try to keep things simple...it is so easy to make simple parts of the process and your launch harder than it needs to be.

It could be a mindset issue or block or some limiting belief--and you know what? It almost doesn’t matter why...because no matter what’s creating this need to layer on things to your launches, once you see how it feels for things to be simple, you will not want to go back to it.

But simplicity, streamlined, stress-free is possible. Let's dive in.

How the right systems, people, and tools can impact your launch (the good & the bad)

Podcast cover

Raise your hand if you’ve ever experienced one of these launch challenges…

  • Something didn’t work or simply BROKE during a launch – a tool, a person, a strategy
  • You struggled to find the right person to help you set up your launch or new course
  • You couldn’t decide what course builder or email platform to use
  • You didn’t give yourself enough time

And if any of the above has happened, then you may have thought…

Launches are hard. Launches are crazy-making. Launches are overwhelming and stressful. Why do I do this to myself over and over again?

But it doesn't have to be this way.

If you're ready to have an easier time launching, look no further than the systems, people, and tools you use to make your launch happen!

How much time are you wasting before launches, trying to recreate what you did during your last launch or creating content/communication/stuff from scratch?

Today I’m sharing the #1 thing you should create right now to avoid all the headaches, stress, and overwhelm that people tell you launching causes.

No matter if you’re new to the launching game or you’ve been doing it for years, this is the one thing you should do before you launch again!

Spoiler alert: If there's one thing I suggest to all clients no matter what their size and experience, it's to do an inventory and then create an organized launch library or asset list.

This process can be overwhelming, so that's why I guide new members of the Launch Incubator (my small application-only group coaching program) through it before helping them create their launch plan.

266: Breaking Your Launch Into Phases

Podcast cover
Read more

Today we're going to be talking about why I break my launch into four phases.

If you'd like to go deep into these 4 phases, make sure to sign up for my webinar: https://annesamoilov.com/masterclass

First, before I plan anything and before I get started on the work...before I even really fully think through the launch, I break it, I break it apart into four different phases.

There are four really good reasons why I do that. I wanted to share that with you today because I know a lot of people, whether it's a difficult time in your family's life or in the world or you're just struggling just to get things done and be consistent, or maybe you're afraid you won't get everything done.

I find that when I break my launch into these four phases, it helps on so many different levels.

So I wanted to share that with you today so that you could start making progress. If there's anything that I want for you more than within actually anything else, it's just that feeling that you're making progress every single day.

Want to dive deeper into these phases and get coaching and personalized strategy? DM me so I can tell you how!

265: Are You Playing The Launch Comparison Game?

Podcast cover
Read more

Today's episode is for you if you find yourself comparing yourself or your business to what other people are doing in their businesses.

Read the post and dive deeper here: http://www.annesamoilov.com/launch-comparison-game/

Imagine this: you’re planning your launch, getting things done, feeling great about your progress and then it sneaks up on you...the launch comparison monster.

You’re handling your business … you not only feel effective, but you are also actually BEING effective.

Then along comes a bump in the road you didn’t expect.

Someone who’s a few steps ahead - or let’s be honest - a few years ahead of you in terms of where your business is - how beautiful their launch looks, just everything about them is the better version of where you are...or at least that’s how it feels.

264: Are launches still working?

Podcast cover
Read more

Launches can be kinda scary…

We've all seen the ones that are wildly successful and launches that don't work at all.

The pie in the sky dream launch stories followed by complete dead in the water disasters.

And both make you want to run for the hills and never utter the word launch–much less actually try to launch something of your own.

But if you haven't launched yet – you should know something. Launches often don't work.

But why??

If you are just starting your business, trying to gather the courage to launch your first product or service, you might be wondering why launches seem to work for only part of the time…or maybe they just work for a small majority of people.

263: Feeling Squeezed? My mantra for moving forward

Podcast cover
Read more

Today I'm sharing a mantra that I created over 10 years ago when I wrote/launched my first product - The White Space Solution ebook.

Scroll down to get a reserve a free copy of the latest edition - free from now through April 2020.

Have you ever felt squeezed in your life or business? Unable to move? Completely stuck?

If you're reading this around the time I'm publishing this, then there's a good chance you do feel this way...we're all connected by that global issue of being stuck at home, paused in our work, maybe looking to start something new.

If this is you, I get it. Sometimes it can be a challenge to set yourself free or move at all.

Over 10 years ago now, I launched my very first book called The White Space Solution...and recently  I took it back out to look over the concepts, see if I could apply it to the crazy global situation happening right now.

Because truthfully, I’ve been feeling all of the feelings and this as tapped into so many parts of me that I haven’t looked at for a long time. 

Life can be demanding, overwhelming, and filled to the brim with the good and the bad along with your health, relationships, work, play, children, and all those things on your to-do lists that keep getting pushed off to someday.

261: Do A Launch Inventory (thank me later)

Podcast cover
Read more

The simple practice that makes launching so. much. easier. Taking inventory is something you normally want to do before you start working on your launch, but in reality, you may end up discovering the inventory as you go along. Make a list of everything you might consider something you can use for your launch. Your inventory should consist of THREE types of “assets” - you may find these already existing in your business. *People - Includes team, affiliates, business partners, collaborators, biz besties *Content - Includes blog content, podcasts, videos, facebook lives, any content *Systems - Includes your tools, your process for doing things, even your payment process Often people try to create everything from scratch when it’s not necessary. Sometimes you’ll have the exact people, you’ve already created all the content, and you’re currently using all the systems you need to execute a launch.

Don’t give yourself more work than you need to do! Time to do your own inventory right now.

260: Revise, Update, and Repurposing Oh my!

Podcast cover
Read more

Repurposing your content is probably the best thing in the world you can do. Repurpose doesn’t mean a straight cut and paste...but it does mean you get to use the exact content in a different format. Not only will this save you loads of time, but it’ll allow your best content to be consumed in different ways. And of course, this means that you get to reach more people. Go back to your inventory of all the content assets you identified. Pick 3 things you can repurpose. Create a new format/media version of that content. Maybe a blog post becomes an Instagram image and post. Maybe a video becomes a blog post. Maybe a podcast becomes content for a Facebook Live. (Yes, you’re allowed to do this!)

Why we need a little notice (And Why It's Important) People love a look behind the scenes. I don’t know of any business that can’t benefit from showing the process, a first look, or even looks at what’s being created along the way. Now, beyond people loving to be voyeurs into the process and seeing what’s really going on...why are these so powerful? Simple - they take people on a journey with you. You invite people to be part of the creation of what you are making for them. You allow them to be co-creators! Download the complete challenge guidebook here: https://bit.ly/launchlovechallenge

257: Not ready to say yes? (That's a good thing)

Podcast cover
Read more

Today’s prompt is important because as you’re going along in your business, you’ll be faced with lots of choices--lots of people who want to work with you, lots of courses to help you be a better business owner, tons of tools to choose from, and you’ll have to choose who you say yes and no to. Starting today - I want to encourage you to say no to anything that doesn’t give you an immediate, “OMG I’d do that for free” feeling. Say no to demands on your time that will push your launch further in the future. Say no to people who want you to support them during your launch. Say no to playdates for your daughter, when you’ve got two webinars planned. Say no to conversations about other people’s businesses during your launch. Say no and protect your launch. Learning to say no - helps you set healthy boundaries with everyone in your world and also your soon to be customers and clients.
