    Episode 126 | What FRIENDS (yes, the show) can teach us about course launch emails

    Episode 126 | What FRIENDS (yes, the show) can teach us about course launch emails

    People keep making these email marketing mistakes that are KILLING their course launches! 
    Whether you are gearing up to live launch your course or writing an evergreen funnel to sell your course on autopilot, there are always a lot of emails to write. 
    Here’s the truth: the more emails you send, the more sales you will make. 
    I’ve seen it over and over again in my own business and in the hundreds of course launches I’ve mentored for my students. 
    BUT – the biggest mistake I see entrepreneurs make is that they send the same style of email – usually pretty salesy ones with the main features of the offer – and that’s it.
    So how can you write emails that are more thought provoking and appeal to all the different buyers in your audience? 
    I’ve got the best way to think about it. 
    You need to write your emails for every character in Friends. 
    Yep, the TV show. 
    (Psst - I’m a diehard Friends fan. I crush it in Friends trivia every single time). 
    When you do this, you’ll create a varied set of emails for your launch that will come across as interesting, dynamic, and ultimately lead to more opens, more clicks, and more sales. 
    Tune in to this episode to learn how to write your launch emails for each Friends Character.

    How has that all happened? 
    How do I have money flowing in every day? 

    It’s thanks to having multiple revenue streams in my business.

    Episode 124 | Is launching a course good for business? (what REALLY happens)

    Episode 124 | Is launching a course good for business? (what REALLY happens)

    If you are an established entrepreneur, what happens to your business when you launch an online course? 
    If you run a service based business, or do 1:1 coaching, or even own a physical product business, what are the side effects of also becoming a course creator?
    Are people going to think you’re changing your business entirely?
    Will you lose high ticket 1:1 customers, because you’re selling something cheaper?
    Will you stop getting coaching clients because they can learn what you know in a course? 
    Will the rest of your offers stop selling? 
    These are all very real questions that I get from students all the time. 
    So let’s talk about what REALLY happens when you come to the market with a new course…

Practical tips you can immediately implement

Gemma's business advice is rock solid. She's got a brilliant business brain, and is transparent and generous in sharing what she has learned along the way in her own journey. Super easy to listen to and I always come away with something I can immediately apply to move the needle in my own business.

Gemma is a genius!

I'm not at all ready to launch a digital course but I am thinking about it and love learning from Gemma. I also love how I can still apply what she teaches us into selling my current calligraphy services!

JacqSnaps ,

Positive & Practical!

I like your glass half full attitude Gemma & the fact that you try to be as practical as you can with the tips you give. Good job.
