    Today’s episode is going to be a little different… we’re going to speak off the cuff about popular lead generation strategies that just frankly, didn’t work for me! Excuse my negativity, I’m usually pretty positive… but I wanted to put this episode out there because I’m seeing these come up over and over again with my students, and I want to talk about them. Now, you may listen and think, “Linds, that lead generation strategy works great for me!” And if that’s you… then keep going. I’m not saying that these don’t work at all, I’m saying that they didn’t work for me. I’ve had my fair share of trying things that didn’t work in business and If I can help you avoid some of these mistakes… then you better believe, we’re gonna talk about it. Ready to hear more about what I’ve tried and failed at? I can’t say I’m really ready to dive into my failures, but hey, let’s give it a go… In today's episode, we'll cover:- Lead generation ideas that sounded good at the time, but were a total bust - How to go all in on what works for your business, so that you can maximize your time as a solopreneur - I’ll also share how to join my upcoming masterclass called “How to Generate More Leads in Your Wedding Business” - where I’ll tell you what DID work and how I grew my business from $30k to $300k in yearly revenue. I get totally transparent and pull back the curtain on my failures. Thanks for tuning into today’s episode of the Build That Business Podcast!

    The Wedding Booking Blueprint Sneak Peek: www.LindsayJWilliams.com/sneakpeek

    Listen, I’ve never done this before. Never in all my years of building, growing and scaling my wedding business have I been this transparent. But here’s the thing, I’ve cracked the code of creating connections with my clients to close more sales. I have a close rate of 96% in fact, and I’m sharing ALL about it in this episode. I’m sharing how I cracked the code and how you can too. The secret weapon? My signature course, The Wedding Booking Blueprint. Now, because there's a lot to cover in this episode, I'm going to jump around a bit so we can cover all of the details, but here's what to expect. I'll be talking about what The Wedding Booking Blueprint is all about: who is it for, what does it solve for wedding professionals, what each module looks like, what's inside of the course, some results from past WBB students, and then, I'll be gushing about what WBB means not only to me, but to some of my students as well. Now, as I am recording this episode, we are in an extra special time around here. It’s sneak peek time. That means that if you've been thinking about building, growing or scaling your wedding business, you can get access to module one of my signature course for free. No strings attached. You have from now until Tuesday, October 12, 2021.

    FREE Live Masterclass: "How to Generate More Leads in Your Wedding Business"Happening October 19th, 20th, and 27th.Register here: www.LindsayJWilliams.com/masterclass

    Today, we’re going to talk about How to Scale Your Business as a Solopreneur. Think solopreneurs can't scale? Think again. Where are my mighty teams of one? I’m here raising my hand with you, girlfriends. And I understand the unique challenges (and rewards) of building and scaling your business as a solopreneur. I’m here to bust the age old myth that solopreneurs can’t scale. - Maybe you’ve hit a cap in your business and don’t think you have any room to scale. - Maybe you’re a service based creative entrepreneur and think it’s just physically impossible to scale your business. - OR Maybe you have no doubt you could scale your business to multi-6 figures, but you believe you would never have time for your family so you’re not interested. ... I’ve heard it all, I’ve thought it all. I’m here to call BS on all of it. You can absolutely scale your business to 6 figures and beyond AND have freedom in your life and business (infact, the steps I’m going to share today will give you MORE freedom). I said all of these things and guess what? I scaled from $30k in year one, to $300k in yearly revenue (without burnout). In this episode, I'm sharing the exact steps I took to simplify and scale my business. We'll talk about what you need to focus on, eliminate, and streamline to get you to multi 6-figures while still maintaining the freedom in your life. In today's episode, we'll cover: - How to simplify your process and streamline your business so that you can scale as a solopreneur - The unique challenges and struggles that solopreneurs face - How to automate your business using tools (Honeybook for proposals and invoices, Calendly for scheduling appointments and Planoly for planning and batching social media) - How to choose the right business mentor, podcast, books or resources - What to simplify in your business so that you can scale (your offerings, your prices and quoting and your appointments) I’ll also share a bit of my journey of how I was able to scale my wedding stationery business from $30k to $300k as a solopreneur.
