    Business BLAB - Leveraging Social Media To Grow Your Email List

    Business BLAB - Leveraging Social Media To Grow Your Email List

    Last week we talked about why social media isn’t a great strategy for your business… but, I know many of you are still relying on good ol’ IG. So this week, we are going to talk about how you can leverage social media to grow your email list. Because social media does have its time and place in the marketing puzzle. It just isn’t the biggest piece. 
    I was teaching an email marketing class recently and I talked about how your email list is your home base. And everything you do gives access to an avenue that will take your person back to that home base. So, you go to a networking event - goal is to get someone to come into your world (aka your homebase… aka you email list). You go on a podcast or post in a facebook group, or any other visibility strategy to get more eyes on you.. same goal. Get the person into your world… So if you flip how you use social media from your main marketing platform to another avenue that gets people to your homebase, you’ve cracked the code as far as I’m concerned. 
    So how do you start doing this? In this episode I break down my tried and true strategy to use social media to grow your email list.

    Business BLAB - Remember when IG ghosted us?

    Business BLAB - Remember when IG ghosted us?

    It’s spooky season.. And I’ve got a little ghost story to share today… Some of you might remember October of 2021. We were all going about our mornings, enjoying the cup of coffee, doing the routines and then hop on to IG (as we do) to scroll for “inspiration” and it wasn’t loading. 

    You thought it was just your phone being annoying so you go onto your other platforms and check back a while later. Still nothing. Another hour goes by… still nothing. You start to panic. Maybe even sweat a little because, if you were like me, you had a whole launch planned that day and it was mostly going down through IG. 

    Next thing you know, everyone in the digital world is talking about how their IG is down too. Panic posts on FB asking “is this just me”? 

    Hours go by and collectively the digital marketing and online business world starts to freak out because IG has never been down this long.. And if IG is down… HOW are we even operating our businesses? 

    Ladies… this is a TRUE STORY! You scared yet? 

    This was the resurrection of email marketing, and if you still aren't on board... you should be SCARED!

    This episode will send chills down your spine and leave you with action steps to save yourself (and your business) today!

    How To Reach Your Q4 Dreams

    How To Reach Your Q4 Dreams

    The Boss Ladies and Babies Podcast is BACK!

    As we head into Q4, this is the time of year where things start to feel (even more) intense. The pressure to reach those goals we set way back on Jan 1st is closing in on us. The Holidays are coming and we are about to have EVEN LESS time to do so, and if you’re like me, you’re likely switching between  imposter AND shiny object syndrome on the daily. (thanks IG)... But I’m here to tell you it does not have to be this way. In fact, what if I told you that Q4 is actually my favorite quarter of the year because I refuse to indulge this BS (remember, my no BS era. That goes for this too). 

    When there are only a few months left in the year, it’s easy to put yourself up against that clock, but how is that really serving you? Is that really going to help you be the most productive? … I'm sharing how in this episode!



    Key Points From This Episode:

    Personal life update

    Recap of the Summer Success series

    Business update

    How the universe plays a role in business

    Guide to plan Q4 around your life's Season

    What is your dream for Q4? Let me know in the review section of Apple podcast, or share and tag me on IG @themegangillespie

    Summer Success Blueprint - Sustainable Scaling For This Season & Beyond: Introducing A Seat At The Table

    Summer Success Blueprint - Sustainable Scaling For This Season & Beyond: Introducing A Seat At The Table

    Welcome back to THE LAST episode of The Summer Success Blueprint. Today, we're diving even deeper into my favorite topic! Last week we talked about the power of creating a high level support network. How are you feeling? Do you have the right support in your business to get to the next level? Still not sure that something like this is for you? Well, let’s start by asking you a couple questions….
    Where do you want your business to be by the end of this year? How do you want to feel? …What will happen in the next 4 months if you change nothing? …. Really, imagine it! But yourself in that moment. How are you feeling? Is your schedule aligned with your life and the lifestyle you want to live? Did you hit your goals? Are you scaling? ….. Take a moment and put yourself there….
    Do you like what you see? 
    Now, imagine this same scene if you DO change something. If you are surrounded by community, support, mentorship, and accountability. If you’ve connected with a group who will help you through the highs and lows of business and life. Who support you and your business as if it were their own. Who help you brainstorm and execute your big next level ideas, connect you with the right people to reach your goals, and are your biggest supporters…. 
    And you’ve learned how to create a schedule and business around your life. How to scale your business for profit. How to grow your brand and attract clients ready to buy from you. How to run a business that allows you to take time off and enjoy LIFE…. 
    Now, do you like what you see? 
    Which version of this future feels better? 
    I’d have to guess it’s the second one, right? But just in case you’re still unsure, this episode will break down a few of the biggest transformations you’ll get by going all in on yourself and your business!

    Plus I introduce a seat at the table in my new Mastermind inspired program - The Boss Academy!
