    Why you need a Conversion Copywriter w/ Aja Stuart

    Why you need a Conversion Copywriter w/ Aja Stuart

    "What is critical and pretty different about conversion copywriters, is that we will interview your audience. Through sending out surveys or interviewing them directly, we'll do 5ish interviews with people who bought your product or really importantly people who didn't buy your product. So we can understand why they're buying your product, what attracted them to your product, what need your product is filling and in the case of people who didn't buy, what objections stopped them from buying. So we can really understand the psychology of your current customers and your potential customers and what has motivated them enough to buy it."

    In today's episode Kaity is joined by Aja Stuart, a launch copywriter.

    Aja Stuart writes powerfully persuasive launch copy that helps online entrepreneurs build empires and grow their impact (while showing up as their weird and wonderful selves). Aja's copy is a masterclass in online relationship building. Using a mix of customer data (fun!), empathy and persuasive storytelling, she gets all the right people blow-their-tops hyped over amazing offers and brilliant creators. When she's not weaving wordy magic, Aja galivants about the Blue Mountains, Australia with her partner and two extremely noisy-but-cute kiddos.

    The power of Instagram Reels w/ Monique Lombardo

    The power of Instagram Reels w/ Monique Lombardo

    "The way I like to look at reels, is it's a way to show your audience something that they haven't seen before. So before reels came out, I felt like I was coasting through Instagram. I was posting photos, posting stories but it felt very static. It didn't feel like I was connecting with my audience, it was just here's a post, engage with it. Whereas with reels, there's motion to it, there's emotion to it. You're giving them your personality, you're giving them insight into who you are and what you do."

    The surprising benefits of LinkedIn w/ Hayley Clinch

    The surprising benefits of LinkedIn w/ Hayley Clinch

    'One of the things I've loved the most about working with small businesses, is you can see that your ideas, your strategies, the campaigns that you're putting together and bringing to life - make an impact, almost instantly, with these businesses. Whereas with the bigger agency side, it was really hard, I definitely felt like a number. It was a great experience but I didn't really feel like I was making an impact.'

Fast-forward a few years (okay, more than a few) and Grevillea was born. Now I work for myself, helping small businesses and juggling the school and kinder run.

    Running a digital business & navigating chronic illness w/ Fiona Smallwood

    Running a digital business & navigating chronic illness w/ Fiona Smallwood

    'The reality is that if you're starting off as a business coach, you don't need a full bells and whistles website. You need somewhere you can make appointments, somewhere you can get in touch, something that has everything you need. But if you go too big you can over capitalise at an early stage of your business. When really it would be sufficient to get those automations happening, get those emails coming through.'

    The yay & nay of Instagram 'hacks' w/ Cheyenne Hackland

    The yay & nay of Instagram 'hacks' w/ Cheyenne Hackland

    'The best way to think of it is, it's a tool, it's not something you have to do, it's not something you have to compete with anyone on, it's a tool you have for your business. So try and take a step back. It is so easy to get overwhelmed, you see everyone doing everything all of the time and it's all just content and noise. But I think, because one of the things people throw out is 'be consistent, consistency is key' and yes it is key, but it's key in your own context. You can be consistent if you're posting twice a week, great, that is consistency. Consistency doesn't have to be everyday.'

    In today's episode Kaity is joined by Cheyenne Hackland, Social Media Manager and Marketer.

    Cheyenne is a social media marketer with 7 years' experience in all things digital, helping small - and large - businesses grow and foster genuine communities.

    After working in Influencer Marketing for brands like Flat Tummy Co & Sneaky Vaunt, she moved to Social Media Management (amongst other things #smallbizlife) for Melbourne-based brand Silent Arrow. After a few years there, Cheyenne took a leap of faith and started Holler Social in early 2019 ~ and hasn't looked back.

    She finds being able to work with amazing businesses across a wide range of industries is incredible, and being able to share her knowledge and experience to help them build their brands, create loyal communities and visually tell their stories is something she is so passionate about and grateful to do each day.
