Business Coaching

 

Learn how to successfully build, grow, and market your creative business.

Have you ever heard "Focus online and your sales will follow"? They say "the more you tell, the more you sell" which is true... but only if people actually hear what you say - or in this case post online. People have to be able to find your products and services online. If you're not using the internet with a purpose you're missing out on sales.

I know what you're thinking... Why should you listen to me? Well... Because I have walked in your shoes... Not even 3 years ago I was right where you are. Faced with a decision that could change my life forever... Right then and there I knew what I had to do.

That's when I quit my 6 figure 9-5 salary and went all-in on my Craftypreneur journey.

I know it can be scary. But I also know if I can do it... anyone can.

In such a short timespan I've been able to...

  • Earn my 6 figure 9-5 Salary each month since Jan 2018
  • Have my Mother leave her six figure 9-5 job.
  • Have my Partner leave his six figure 9-5 job.
  • Donate thousands to our community - monthly.
  • Host a live event with 900 members of our online community.
  • Passed 16,000 sales on Etsy and 50,000 sales on our website.
  • Opened an additional online store and passed $1,000,000 in sales in less than a year

and...

I share exactly how I did it, all of my success tips, what's working, what doesn't, and how you should apply them to your business.

You'll be surprised at how your sales increase when you start focusing your energy on the right audience.

 

Do some SEO homework.

Once you know who you're talking to you'll need to find out what they're searching for online. We can help you navigate through the web to find the perfect SEO and keywords that lead your ideal customer right to your product or service.

 

You're not a business without some transactions...
