    Double Your Revenue by Offering VIP Days with Jordan Gill

    Today I’m interviewing my good friend, Jordan Gill. Jordan is an Operations Consultant and Founder of Systems Saved Me, where she helps overworked entrepreneurs streamline their businesses.
    Jordan started her business under a retainer model and quickly realized how unsustainable this was for her. She knew she had to find another way to bring revenue into her business in a way that was more aligned with her strengths and what she enjoys doing. That’s why she started offering intensives that she calls VIP Days. 
    She walks us through how she came to this realization and the hesitation she sees many other business owners face with this type of business model. She and I chat about her marketing practices and why she is a huge believer in creating strong, mutually beneficial referral partnerships. You’ll hear what you should consider if you are thinking about adding intensives to your service offerings and why you need to charge more for these services.

    How Jordan started Systems Saved Me and what services she offers What led her to the decision of helping seasonal businesses Jordan’s 5 step framework for seasonal business owners Her realization that retainer work wasn’t sustainable and moving to VIP Days instead Why she is adamant about creating referral partnerships What you should consider if you want to try VIP Days Why you need to charge more than your hourly rate for VIP Days

Straightforward and super valuable advice for stepping into the role of CEO of your business

Through a serendepitious sequence of events, I got (re)connected to Nicole Jackson Miller, and I'm so glad I did - right as she launched her podcast. Scale Your Way is fantastic. Nicole is incredibly generous with the advice she gives, she's a great interviewer, and I especially appreciate the questions she asks that have helped me have some aha moments I wasn't expecting. Whether you have a successful agency, you are contemplating moving from being a solopreneur to leading an agency, or you run a coaching/consulting business with a growing team, you will love this podcast.
