    Mia Mentors: 5 Vital Ways To Grow Your Business

    Already have a business or side-hustle? This one's for you.

    You’ve asked. We listened. 

    The Rocket Plan is back. It’s our course for women who already have a business or a side-hustle BUT have stalled or who need to pivot. For those who need specific guidance and group mentoring. So basically, anyone needing to put a rocket up their business. 

    And how do you go from starting up to scaling up? You need a plan. 

    In the 3 weeks of this course, we’ll set you up with a clear plan - a ROCKET PLAN - for the next 12 months of business success. And GROWTH.

    In this episode, we’ll walk through the 5 vital ways to grow and put a rocket under your business, by:

    Mia Mentors: How To Turn Followers Into Sales

    Mia Mentors: How To Turn Followers Into Sales

    You’ve launched your business, or maybe you’ve been running your business for a while, and now you need practical tips to turn followers into sales. 

    Followers are a wonderful thing but if you’re running a business, the point of those followers is to turn them into customers - people who will pay you money for your products or your services.

    Right now you might be questioning whether your product or service is actually good enough. Maybe it’s not what people are looking for? Maybe no one will ever be willing to pay for it? 

    Chances are it is good enough, there are people looking for it and those people will absolutely be willing to pay for it. 

    So what’s missing?

    You’re not nurturing your customers. 

    In this episode, we look at how you can turn followers into paying customers.

    We discuss…
    Methods that you can start using today to support your customers more. Learning about the impact something as simple as a birthday discount can have on the perception of your business.
    How to make your customers and feel like valued friends and how this strategy can lead to free promo for your business.
    And how to really listen to feedback and then use that feedback in your business. Because nothing sells quite as well as your customers sharing their own experiences. 

    PLUS, you’re invited to an exclusive FREE event with Mia Freedman...

    Join us at 7pm AEST, Monday 3rd of May, as Mia shares her 3 secret strategies to grow your business or side-hustle. Register via the link below and save your spot!

    Nicole Liu was twenty-four when she quit her graduate job in business consultancy. She wanted to see the world, take a break and get on top of her health, something she had neglected while working in the corporate world.
