Rank #7: Creating a Marketing Funnel that Works, with John Lee Dumas

Podcast cover
Read more

Having the right marketing funnels in place can have an astronomical effect on the success of your business. But, developing a marketing funnel that moves people through the journey to conversion takes time and strategy.

So, who better to discuss marketing funnels than the expert, John Lee Dumas. John is the founder and host of the award-winning podcast, Entrepreneurs On Fire, where he delivers inspirational strategies to help fellow entrepreneurs live the life they’ve always dreamed of having.

John was the opening keynote speaker at last year’s Youpreneur Summit, where he inspired the audience to create profitable funnels for their business. His speech was so good that I thought… you know what? it would be a shame if that were the last time anyone ever heard it. So… this podcast episode is a little bit different. I’ve pulled the audio directly from last year’s keynote archives to share John’s fantastic keynote speech with you all.

In John’s speech, he shares everything you need to know about building a highly profitable marketing funnel that could lead to a multi-million-dollar business.

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • Your defining moment in life is the instant that motivates you to stand up, take action and discover your “true purpose”
  • If you don’t learn how to “funnel up” before “funneling down”, your marketing funnel will never work
  • A funnel is the journey that your avatar takes from the moment they first discover your brand until they become a client, customer or an evangelist
  • Build the initial momentum and get things going by niching down
  • Your “avatar” is your ideal customer – so make sure you know them inside and out!
  • You must have a content creation system in place to make sure you create content on a consistent level
  • If you created a great piece of content, get the most out of it by repurposing it
  • Don’t underestimate the power of a one-to-one conversation to grow your audience
  • Host live training sessions because sales happen on live webinars
  • Never hesitate to let people know about your offer because as an entrepreneur, you’re obligated to generate revenue
  • Much, much more!

Rank #9: Building a Personal Brand in the 21st Century, with Gary Vaynerchuk

Podcast cover
Read more

Your personal brand building strategy shouldn’t remain the same year after year. It’s something that continues to develop as your business, and your audience grows.

If you want to build a business based around you and your personal brand, I highly recommend you listen to this episode of the podcast featuring the one and only, Gary Vaynerchuk. Gary is a serial entrepreneur, a highly sought-after public speaker and the chairman of VaynerX. He’s made the New York Times bestseller list not once, but five times in his career and he’s the host of The GaryVee Audio Experience, a top 100 global podcast.

Gary joins me on this episode of Youpreneur FM to talk about why the time is now to start thinking about building a personal brand business that’s going to take you into the 21st century.

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • When you’re an anomaly, you play by different rules
  • Personal brand business owners are making far more in today’s market than ever before
  • The difference between people on top of the personal brand space and those at the bottom is that those on top have reinvested profits back into their business
  • If you want to make a real change, you’ve got to make a “religious decision” to do it instead of having tactical thoughts
  • For a personal brand to work, you’ve got to be okay with the notion that even though you’re giving out free content, it may lead to zero monitorization on a micro level, but not in a macro environment
  • You’ve got to focus on being yourself if you want to create consistency in your business
  • Self-awareness is critical in finding success as an entrepreneur
  • Much, much more!

Rank #11: 5 Key Elements to Building a Personal Brand

Podcast cover
Read more

Back in the day, all you needed to build your personal brand was a logo and a website and you were golden. Nowadays, however, consumers are looking for so much more. They want to share experiences, goals and pain points with you - they’re looking for a special connection with a person and a name they can trust.

The rise of “influencers” and “micro-influencers” is a great example of personal branding and authenticity - it’s that unique human element that audiences crave and that big brands try to emulate.

So where do you start when it comes to building your own personal brand? In this episode, I deep-dive into the five key elements that will help you build a successful, future-proof personal brand. 

Tune in as I also talk about how you can tell your story, defining the people you want to serve and why you need to realize you can’t serve everyone and should focus on the audience that really matters to you. There’s a lot to unpack in this episode, so grab a pen, a notebook and enjoy!

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • Why you should make sure that the people you are attracting now are the right people you want to serve.
  • Get to know your perfect customer so that when you meet them in real life you know just what to say and how you can help.
  • Make sure your website has the right messaging so your audience knows exactly what you want them to do.
  • Remember, social media isn’t about how many followers you have - it’s all about the engagement you create.
  • Real relationships take time to build but they are worth it, so get to know people and let them get to know you. 
  • Much, much more!

Rank #15: Understanding the Power of Choosing to Win, with Tom Ziglar

Podcast cover
Read more

I appreciate every single guest that I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing on the show. But, I’ve got to say, having Tom Ziglar sit down for a chat with me on Youpreneur FM is just a dream come true. You may not know this, but Tom’s father was my virtual mentor since I was 15 years old. I’ve followed his journey through the years, and his legacy continues to inspire me to this day.

If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know who Tom Ziglar is, let me enlighten you. Tom is a fierce entrepreneur and the CEO of Ziglar Inc. The business has been going strong since 1926 and Tom strives to keep the Ziglar legacy alive, carrying his father’s simple but powerful philosophy, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

In this episode, Tom and I talk about the mindset shifts we need to make to sincerely choose to win at what Tom calls, the “wheel of life.” It’s an inspirational and eye-opening chat, so I suggest grabbing a notebook for this one!

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • You can’t control the circumstances in your life, but you can control your choices
  • The fastest way to success is to replace bad habits with good habits
  • You need three things to make your dream happen – the right mindset, the right strategy, and the right action
  • What you feed your mind determines your appetite
  • The first step in your journey of choosing to win is to identify the why and the ropes that are holding you down
  • Much, much more!

Rank #16: Blazing Her Own Personal Branding Trail, with Lauren Tickner

Podcast cover
Read more

Building your personal brand takes a lot of hard work and dedication. It’s about you, your personality and passions but more importantly, it’s about what you can do and how you can serve others.

I’ve had a lot of young people on the show lately and this week’s guest is just 21 (but she doesn’t talk like a 21-year-old!). Lauren got in touch with me after she picked up my book, “Rise of the Youpreneur” and reached out to me. Lauren is a professional health and fitness coach with over 120,000 followers on Instagram. She’s doing an incredible job utilising the platform to help build her brand and she has a real fresh outlook on entrepreneurship and business.

Lauren struggled with weight issues as a teen until one day she decided enough was enough. She discovered weight lifting and how to lose weight healthily and launched an Instagram account to track her fitness journey. She realized that people were interested in what she was doing and what she had to say, especially when she gave value to her audience. It wasn’t long before her followers wanted to buy her products and so, Lauren made the difficult decision to drop out of university, quit her job, and embark on her personal brand journey – and she couldn’t be happier!

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • Remember that your online presence can have a massive impact on your reputation AND your brand
  • You can take your own experiences and personal trials to offer support to others
  • Don’t let anyone else in your life stop you from going after what you want
  • Branching out of your industry is possible if you know how to do it RIGHT
  • Providing valuable content to your target audience is the key to building and maintaining a successful brand and a loyal following
  • Staying focused on your message and keeping it aligned with your business model will help attract the right people to your business
  • It’s worth taking risks when you’re young because you’ve got time to recuperate if it doesn’t go as planned
  • If you start thinking less about failing and more about succeeding, you’re more likely to do great things with your life
  • Much, much more!

Rank #19: How to Make More Sales Than Ever, with Jessica Lorimer

Podcast cover
Read more

Most entrepreneurs are reluctant to call themselves a salesperson. But the truth is, if you’re an aspiring entrepreneur, you’re selling (or trying to sell) something. Whether that’s a physical product or service, your role of salesperson plays a crucial part towards selling that winning idea of yours.

In this podcast episode, I welcome sales coach and business strategist, Jessica Lorimer, onto the show. Jessica helps coaches and entrepreneurs create simple sales funnels that convert potential customers into paying clients.

We talk about the sales process and how it’s evolved. More importantly, we break down the best tips and practical strategies for you to make more sales and grow a successful business.

Essential Learning Points From This Episode:

  • You’re always replaceable unless you’re the one doing the hiring
  • You have to bet on yourself because nobody else is going to do it for you
  • Show people your human side and don’t paint yourself as a “perfect human being” because people don’t buy from perfect people, they buy from real people
  • Don’t give your audience constant value without selling anything because it can lead to what Jessica likes to call, “baby bird syndrome”
  • Always carry out key market research to make sure you have an audience of potential buyers before selling something new
  • An aspirational seller is someone who has already achieved the end goal that the aspirational buyer wants
  • An emotional seller is someone who uses a personal experience or trauma to sell something to others (such as the learning outcomes)
  • Make your sales process as simple as possible for your customers – leave out the jargon and get straight to the point!
  • Do your market research in advance and discover as much as possible about your ideal customer
  • When it comes to customer objections, you must show empathy before confirming whether or not the objection is valid
  • You should embrace objections because they help you to improve yourself, your business and your sales
  • Don’t let your customers walk away from the sale indecisive about their decision to purchase
  • Put a follow-up strategy in place and learn how to handle an objection without taking it personally
  • Much, much more!
