#205: Day 5 - 3 Deadly Mistakes of a Product Launch
Welcome to Day 5 of our 5 Day Launch Challenge! We're talking about 3 deadly launch mistakes that you want to avoid! The whole point of launching is to be as successful as possible, so today we are talking about some of the mistakes that many people make when they launch. The 3 Deadly Mistakes of a Product Launch: 1. Jumping Into a Launch - Sometimes it is tempting to just jump into your product launch! You can easily have unrealistic sales projections, which will make it worse on you when it doesn’t meet your expectations. 2. The 6 Figure Illusion - we think that achieving 6 figures in a launch is common place, and it’s not actually all that easy to hit that number. Someone having a 6 figure launch has probably launched products multiple times. Don’t give up after your first launch. Keep working on it and launching time after time. 3. Overconfidence - there is a fine line between being confident and being too confident. A launch isn’t easy and it’s not easy to hit big numbers. There is so much work behind the scenes, and personally, I have prepped for about 4 weeks before I launched. Have a strategy to make sure all your time is going into planning your launch. Showing up and being consistent will give you the confidence you need to sell out your program. Setting realistic goals, that are also ambitious is a good idea! It’s all a numbers game! Listen to the episode to hear the case studies of actual clients that I’ve worked with. Today’s action item to answer these 3 questions in the Facebook group: What are you going to do to avoid the costly launch mistakes? Would you be willing to invest time and money in a system to walk you through launch? What is the important to having accountability to keep your launch on track? Post your answers in the FB group and tag it #launchedin90 The Profit Mastermind - Launched in 90 Days Doors are Open! - it’s a group of 20 women with weekly like calls for 90 days. There’s lots of training videos and a private FB group just for us! There are 3 phases to creating a product and this plan covers all of them!

How often have you had somebody wanting to pick your brains about some aspect of a business that you really know about? This used to happen to Stacy a lot because she really loves sharing the ups and downs and what's working and what's not. She did this until she realized that she was teaching and sharing her experience with other people- and doing it for free! She points out that we are now living in an age where you can access almost anything the second that you jump on Google, Youtube, or Facebook, so today, Stacy asks you why you shouldn't become one of the resources that other people go to?

#131: The Importance of Accountability, with Stacy Tuschl
Stacy Tuschl is a speaker, business coach, and the owner of The Academy of Performing Arts in Wisconsin. She is the author of the book “Is Your Business Worth Saving?” where she reveals proven strategies for pulling entrepreneurs out of a rut and launching them toward business success. Today we’re going to be talking about how I’m structuring my upcoming mastermind group and how it’s different from group coaching. Some highlights include: I went back and forth on how long to do my mastermind group. A lot of masterminds are 12 months, but I wanted to do a jump start 90 day program with 12 women entrepreneurs. I wanted something quick but long enough for the members to see results. (minute 4:00) I’m going to be structuring the mastermind group with a weekly video call. Every week, we’ll be coming together to share our wins from the past week and then everyone will check in to see if they’ve accomplished last week’s goals. The nice thing about being in a paid mastermind group is there’s a facilitator, so I’ll be keeping track of all this so we can go back and see goals from 90 days ago or maybe just from last week. Some people don’t remember what their goals were, so this is going to help them stay accountable. (minute 5:00) There is a difference between group coaching and a mastermind – in my group coaching, people are there to get my feedback and they’re coming to me to have me actually coach them. However in a mastermind, you are in it for everyone’s feedback. You will be getting opinions from not only me, but from 11 other women. It’s like having a focus group right there to find a quick answer. (minute 6:00) Just the higher price point alone is going to get people who are dedicated – they are committed, they are ready to go. This just wasn’t something that I was taking any of the first 12 women that apply. I had to let everyone know that I was looking over the applications that are filled out and then jumping on the phone with each applicant to confirm that they’re a good fit for one another. So, that’s another big difference between group coaching and a mastermind program. You really have to be more selective when figuring out if people are going to be able to work together well.

#176: Know Your Value So You Can Provide Maximum Value to Others with Bob Burg
If you're having some difficulty understanding the difference between your real value and the price that you're charging, you will really gain a lot from today's show. Stacy's guest, Bob Burg, is a best-selling author and a speaker. He has written a number of books on sales, marketing and influence and today he explains the importance of knowing this, as well as giving you a lot of other, really valuable advice. Listen in today, to what Bob has to tell you about knowing your true value and also about giving value to others. Bob's total book sales have already reached over a million, with the book The Go Giver having been particularly successful. Stacy says that even if you take away only one golden nugget from Bob on today's show, it's going to really be worth listening to, so tune in now, to hear what Bob has for you. Some highlights include: “Sometimes, with entrepreneurs, there's a tendency to under value yourself.” From minute 1:45, Bob talks about price and value and why it's so important to understand the difference between the two. “The basic premise of The Go Giver is simply shifting your focus from getting to giving.” From minute 2:12, Bob talks about shifting your focus from getting to giving. “We should absolutely trying to please others, and as a result, we profit.” At minute 2:47, Bob explains how pleasing others ties into our human nature, as well as into pre-market economics, so we will naturally profit, as a result. “Let's talk about the difference between price and value, because understanding it is what allows us to charge what we should be charging. From minute 3:16, Bob explains about charging what you should be charging and feeling great about it. “Price is finite, but value can be both concrete, in terms of that $5000 saving, but it can also be conceptual, in terms of the peace of mind that she's providing.” At minute 5:27, Bob explains the difference between price and value, as in the example that he used. “ In a free market exchange, the main characteristic of such an exchange is that both parties, the buyer and the seller, come away from the transaction better off.” From minute 6:17, Bob explains the basics of The Law of Value. “When you sell on high value, you're a resource.” At minute 6.59, Bob explains about selling on high value. “Sometimes it's so great to work with a coach.” From minute 7:59, Bob explains about the value of working with a coach. “Someone gave me some advice that changed the whole way I did business.” From minute 9:20, Bob talks about the advice that changed the way he did business. “So many people think that selling is about trying to convince someone to buy something they don't want or need.” From minute 11:48, Bob talks about common misconceptions about selling and sets things straight with the truth about it. “In other words, it's the lack of emotional attachment.” From minute 13:45, Bob explains about emotional posture. “Asking if something will make money, like you said, is a great question, it's just a bad first question.” From minute 19:08, Bob explains why asking if something will make money is a bad question to ask first. “If it will serve, the money will be a result.” At minute 21.03, Bob talks about serving as a priority. “We always have to realise that we operate unconsciously, based on our own unconscious beliefs.” From minute 22:20, Bob talks about our unconscious beliefs and how they can affect our views about others. “If it's a matter of an actual coach that we're hiring...” From minute 23:30, Bob and Stacy explain what you should look for in a coach.

#197: Creating a Product Suite to Increase Your Customer's Lifetime Value With Stacy Tuschl
Last week I was in Laguna Beach, California, with my Mastermind, where I go every ninety days. It's a really great way to refresh and recharge and it was exactly what I needed, so I'm really excited to be back today! Today, we're talking about creating a Product Suite that will increase your customer's lifetime value. What is a Product Suite? It's that customer journey. A few years ago, before I had a digital product, I went to a Brendan Burchard Event and there they taught us to charge what you're worth and not to undervalue yourself. I totally agree, but I also think we have to be realistic here and realize that people won't just jump into a two thousand, a four thousand, or a ten thousand dollar product after they find you for the first time. It's a lot easier to convert when you have a customer journey. Today I want to share with you something that I have done, since then. I've come out with a customer journey with a couple of things that we're going to talk about today. Listen in to find out what it's all about. Show highlights: “So, first of all, you have to have free content.” From minute 2:11, Stacy explains the necessity for having something completely free in your Product Suite, that would be worth paying for. “After the free offer, a really great place to start is an Introductory Offer.” From minute 2:47, Stacy explains that an Introductory Offer could be worth anywhere between $7 and $97. It's a great way to sample your products, or what you're like to work with, before they may jump into a huge $10 000 program, or whatever you have to offer. “After Introductory, I would head towards more of an intermediate type of offering.” From minute 3:14, Stacy explains that an intermediate type of offering would be anywhere from $197 to $997. There's a huge range, here, but your own range needs to make sense. “After that is the Premium Offer.” From minute 3:46, Stacy explains that the Premium Offer would be anywhere from $1997 to $5000, or even $10 000. “And then the Exclusive Offer is this high priced, high ticket offer.” From minute 3:59, Stacy explains the value of this Exclusive Offer. The price point on this could be $10 000 to $100 000. “You want to start with the end in mind.” From minute 4:43, Stacy explains that you shouldn't start with the freebie, or it may not lead to the Introductory and then you may have just a random product that doesn't really make sense. “I have had, in my head, my Exclusive Offer, for a long time.” From minute 5:06, Stacy explains how to create an Exclusive Offer. She's always wanted to post her own Mastermind, and so she knows that all her offers will lead in that direction. It won't be something for the masses. It will be something much smaller and more intimate, so you only want the select group that will accept your price point. You need to be thinking about where you're heading and where you'll be taking those people- and what's the biggest ticket price that you could possibly have. “After we have that Exclusive Offer, I want to know what is your Premium Offer?” From minute 6:42, Stacy uses herself as an example, to show what you can do as a Premium Offer. “So the Premium Offer leads very nicely into the Year Long Offer.” From minute 7:18, Stacy explains that you need to make sure that your Premium Offer leads very nicely into the Year Long Offer and that yours makes sense to do that. You want to continue that customer journey and continue increasing the lifetime value of that customer. “Then the next point is the Intermediate Offer.” From minute 7:58, Stacy explains that for her, the Intermediate Offer is more of a DIY online course. You don't have to have three different products or digital programs. It could be three different levels, where one is a DIY, one is a Group Coaching Program and one is a smaller, intimate Mastermind and it's still one product. “Tripwire isn't a word you would use internally.” From minute 8:59, Stacy explains about the Introductory Offer and she cautions you about using the word 'tripwire' when talking to your customers. She also explains about using the stuff that you already have, to create this. “Let's go from free all the way up to exclusive and let's decide does this really lead from one to another.” From minute 11:40, Stacy talks about making sure that your one product leads to the next one. Does your freebie make someone want to buy your introductory offer? And does that offer make them want to work with you more? Is everything in alignment and does it feel like it should if you're on a customer journey? Think about the one person who really wants to continue to work with you. Think about how you can serve them and keep them wanting to come back. Links: Go to bit.ly/Aceframework to get Stacy's Ace Framework, completely free.

#137: Giving Value To Your Customers, with Stacy Tuschl
Stacy Tuschl is a speaker, business coach, and the owner of The Academy of Performing Arts in Wisconsin. She is the author of the book “Is Your Business Worth Saving?” where she reveals proven strategies for pulling entrepreneurs out of a rut and launching them toward business success. Today's episode invites you to be part of the Facebook Live series in the Facebook group She's Building Her Empire. Today is day five of this week's morning series, called 'She Motivates'. The topic for today is: Giving Value to Your Customers. Stacy talks about the phrase 'under promise and over deliver' and why that can backfire at times. She also offers some really sound advice about how you can deliver more value to your clients. Some highlights include: “You're following, they're kind of MIA for a while...all of a sudden they jump on- they're doing things and all of a sudden you realize they're not MIA any longer because they're going to sell you something.” At minute 1.41, Stacy shares one of her pet hates and also the reason she's done this extra series. “It's not a 'no', it's just a 'not right now'.” At minute 2.56, Stacy talks about giving value to potential clients. “You want people to see how much value you're giving them.” At minute 3.29, Stacy explains why she offers so much free content. “I love that people are loving this, or loving that, because it motivates me, right, it makes me go 'this is why I'm doing this'.” At minute 5.19, Stacy talks about the need for positive feedback in one's business. “It's basically writing about all the things we're going to give you, that nobody else is doing.” At minute 5.45, Stacy tells you more about her document 'We Give You More' and her strategy behind it. “For them, it's this perceived value, but really, it's a value where I'm paying a flat fee, so it's not nearly costing as much as they perceive it in their mind.” From minute 8.00, Stacy discusses 'perceived value' and how to benefit from using it. “So I want you today to really really be thinking about what else you could be doing for your customers to actually say 'wow'.” From minute 9.05, Stacy talks about how to max the 'wow' factor in business. “Now I like to go above and beyond with mistakes too.” At minute 13.36, Stacy shares her strategy for extracting value from a mistake.
