Have you been trying to grow your online business and have struggled?

You need to build up that trust factor, girl!

Building trust online is very different from how you build trust with your local community. 

Think about it. You’re trying to not only get people to believe you can help solve their problems, you’re just trying to get them to believe that you’re actually real.

There are some shortcuts to help you build up that Trust facto...

Working with clients one on one can be tough.

Does this situation sound familiar to you?

You’re maxed out. You’re not making the money you thought you would and you’re not necessarily getting the freedom you pictured when you started your business either.

Is there any hope for that to be better?

One of the best things you can do for yourself and your business’s growth is to do something I honestly struggle with all of the time.

Tell me - do you actually treat your business the way you should?

Focusing on your business's growth and health should be your number one priority, but when you're a service provider, you're often getting caught up in your clients' businesses instead.

These last few weeks especially have been a doozy for me. I have goals and visions that I want to enact in my business, but I don't take the time.

So this week, I'...

By not making your online content accessible, you're excluding 25% of the population in the U.S. alone.⁠

Today's episode of The Captain Coder podcast is incredibly special to me. I have one of my best friends from college on to talk about her journey with the disability community and how she's learned how important it is to make the Internet accessible. ⁠

Can you be a business owner and be an introvert?

When you think of famous entrepreneurs, you might think they’re all extroverts. They have no problems talking to people, going out and selling their products and services, and getting to know more people who can push their business forward.

But I promise you, you don’t have to be an extrovert to succeed in business.

In fact, some hugely successful entrepreneurs are self-declared introve...

When you first started your service business, you were mostly worried about getting clients and keeping your costs low. Right?

One of the great things about starting a done-for-you service business is that you can start your own business with little to no overhead.

Keeping costs low and business simple often means a lot of business owners start with creating social media accounts and don’t prioritize getting a website.

Why is that a p...

Has your business stagnated? Do you feel like you’ve gotten to a certain point where you just don’t know how to grow your business?

Your ideal customer lives on Google. In fact, that’s where they’re at when they’re the most ready to buy. The most ready to sign up for a discovery call or even a service directly.

How do you capture the attention of your dream customers when they’re on Google searching for someone to help them? You know you’d be the perfect fit, but how do you even get your foot in that SEO door?

In today’s episode, we’re going to learn 8 easy steps...

Stop creating content no one reads or listens to.

If you consistently put out content but feel like it falls on deaf ears - well, it probably is.

You can’t get consistent leads and revenue when you talk to no one, so start attracting your ideal customer now!

How do you do that?

By speaking their lingo - not your own technical jargon.

Do you provide high ticket offers? As a coach or consultant, you know that you need to get people on the phone (or a video call) in order to turn that lead into a sale.

Filling up your calendar with discovery calls can be the key to exploding your online business. It’s the best way to introduce someone to your business, build a relationship with your leads, and make sure you’re the right fit to help them.

Has your business run comfortably on referrals but now those leads are starting to dry up?

You can’t capture leads when they don’t have anywhere to go and learn more about you and your business - in a single easy place.

They don’t want to hunt for that information through your Instagram feed.

When you run your business online, your business needs a home online.

Does your ideal customer visit your website and yet do nothing once they’ve landed there?

I’m talking - don't fill out a single form, schedule a call, or even make it off of your homepage.

If you feel like your website does nothing for your business, it’s because you’re not actually telling the people who visit your website how to work with you.

Have you been banging your head against your desk wondering how to charge for a website? After all, customers don't see the value, right?

In our world, we're often feeling like we're fighting for the lowest bid and yet we know that that is not the way to build a profitable business.

You know the customer, you understand what they need, and you know you can help them, but we often get caught up in price.
