    Quick Flip – Nikki’s 5-Figure Month

    Quick Flip – Nikki’s 5-Figure Month

    Before joining the Flip Your Life community, Nikki’s approach to business, like many, was static. By taking our advice and making memberships the core part of your business was the advice we gave Nikki that switched her just 2 years into the FYL community, her business is thriving!



    This February Nikki had her first $60K month. Most of those sales, from her online membership community that she established. After becoming a Flip Your Life member, Nikki learned how to turn her attention into an audience, just like us.

    The ‘lowdown’ on Nikki:



     Started her own business, Sales Maven, in 2013

    Sales Coach, Sales Trainer, Podcaster

     Master-Certified in Neuro-Linguistic programming

    Had her first $60K month in February, most of which from online memberships

    Show Notes

    Here’s how we helped Nikki take her online business to the next level:



    Forget the ‘time for dollars’ mindset. 



    By making online memberships the core of her business and even selling lifetime memberships, she now has a never-ending supply of people relying on her influence. We call these ‘super-fans.’ Remember: ‘People who pay, pay attention. People who invest, invest back.’



    Turn attention into your audience.



    Attention doesn’t make you any money. The goal is to turn attention into audience. The true magic of the membership model is that you still have to turn that member and the group of members around them into a community. This is where your liveable income comes into play.



    Don’t teach everything you know.



    Your content is usually what starts most memberships. Your online business is not about the content, don’t give it all away in your curated content blueprint! Let people ask questions, let other people in your online community them as well. Collaboratively finding ways to figure solutions to your problems, through experiences.



    $60K+ months truly can happen overnight.



    But, simply continuing on a traditional business model will not get you there.



    It takes think from a membership-based core. The only way to stretch your success and allow it to meet your full potential, is to keep membership and community as your ultimate online business goal.

    FL336 – We Celebrate Nikki’s $60K Month

     







    As entrepreneurs ourselves, we know first-hand the importance of making online memberships the core part of your business.



    We saw this again with member Nikki Rausch. We have known Nikki for years, and love knowing that long gone are her days of trading her time for dollars. She has had success after success since we met her. Not only is she a master in sales, she has created her own online community.



    Nikki built her business brick by brick, and this February had her first $60K month. Most of those sales, from her online membership community that she established. After becoming a Flip Your Life member, Nikki learned how to turn her attention into an audience, just like us.



    We helped her take her limited ‘1-on-1’ influence, and turn her into business into a never-ending supply, through creating online memberships.

    We want every month to be a $60K+ month and it’s totally possible!



    Before joining the Flip Your Life community, Nikki’s approach to business, like many, was static. However, just 2 years into the FYL community, her business is thriving!



    Following our advice, after investing just $5,000 into her online memberships, she made that money back in just 2 days. Within 4 days, she made that initial investment back 3x over. Just wait, it gets better. Within 7 to 8 days, Nikki made $47,000 through the FYL lifetime membership model!



    Here’s how we helped Nikki take her online business to the next level:



    Forget the ‘time for dollars’ mindset. 



    You can have success after success, and still not meet your full potential. Often times in a traditional business model, ‘1-on-1’ or VIP influence, is limiting at best.



    Before Nikki joined the FYL community, this was her approach. Was she crushing it? Yes! Could her business grow more? Yes! But, how?



    By making online memberships the core of her business and even selling lifetime memberships, she now has a never-ending supply of people relying on her influence. We call these ‘super-fans.’



    You do not need 1M followers to do this, Nikki has around 2,800. But, she has now identified a core group of members that love her knowledge enough to create a sustainable online community and income.



    Remember: ‘People who pay, pay attention. People who invest, invest back.’



    Turn attention into your audience.



    Attention doesn’t make you any money. The goal is to turn attention into audience.



    People who pay attention to you regularly: follow you on Facebook, subscribe to your YouTube, that is an audience. Your audience is not going to make you a living. BUT, a member is your family. They have given up something of value, (their money), to get what you offer in return. The idea is to make members out of your audience.

    FL335 – We Celebrate Paul’s 100th Member

    Just like us, Paul’s online membership started small. He started the way we did, building brick by brick. However, with our help and following the Flipped Lifestyle blueprint, he made a 70% jump in membership in a matter of months. In doing so, he hit our first goal of 100 memberships joining his online community. 



    Meaning, he now has enough monthly income to solely rely on his online memberships to provide for him and his family.

    The ‘lowdown’ on Paul Clifford:



    Specializes in online live streaming, online church training ‘ProPresenter’

    Started working for himself in 2011

    With Flip Your Life, grew his online membership by 70% in a matter of months



    What You’ll Learn:



    * You can be a solution to any problem (5:35)

    * God-Given experiences stack up (7:37)

    *  How memberships are more feasible (9:47)

    *  Adding fuel to the fire (21:19)

    *  There’s a light at the end of the tunnel (24:11)

    *  Use marketing as a launching pad (29:01)

    100: ‘The Magic Number’ to make a living for you + your family.

    Paul is the king of persistence. He has literally been growing his online business brick by brick since 2014, when he joined the Flip Your Life community.



    While he stayed steady at 25 members for a while, he set a goal to double that number by the end of 2019.



    While he fell just short of that goal, through advice from the Flipped Lifestyle, in 3 months, Paul’s memberships grew 70%, now keeping 100 members a month!



    Take what you’ve got or create something new, to create a content area.



    Curate a blueprint or path for people to follow with your content.



    Build some kind of community, this can be Facebook groups, member calls, or anything like that, to keep your members connected. In that, make sure to position yourself as the leader. Lead people through this process over months to help get them to the next level.



    This is how you truly begin building your online business, your memberships. Taking yourself and this community you are now leading into the next level, together.



    Go from your foundation to adding fuel to the fire.



    Answer your own, ‘what do I do next?’



    Marketing is your launchpad. Do this in a way that makes sense for you. For instance, let’s take Membership Masters. We know from experience how easy it is to sign up for a course, leave it in your inbox, and never to be opened. We decided, the best way that we, ourselves, remember to do something is to have it stare us in the faces. That is why, we send out a physical paper newsletter to doorsteps each month. It’s kind of like our monthly Christmas present to our members. It holds us all accountable and keeps us all on schedule, to make sure we grow as much as we can.



    Set a goal. Paul’s goal was to grow his memberships numbers by 50%, from 25 to 50, by January 1st of 2020. He ended up in the upper 40s, but ultimately got more than he expected by fueling the fire through his own promotions and marketing. Since February of, he has maintained 100 monthly members, and growing.



    By finding out what works for him and applying our strategic membership blueprint, Paul took his static online business and is now thriving.



    Once you find that prolific promotion, every day is a raise.



    That is what truly makes a Membership Master.



    Give yourself a promotion every single day. Look at your new members not only as win-wins, but as your raises.



    Switch your mindset from numbers to dollars. By doing this, each new member becomes your daily ‘hey, I just got myself a $20 a day raise,

    Like us, many of our FYL members try their hand at online memberships for freedom from a dead-end job, for a work-life balance, or even as a side-hustle.

    Show Notes

    Here in 2020, we are seeing the importance of online memberships more than ever.



    Everything has been making its way online for a long time now, with COVID-19 coming from out of nowhere, that only sped the process up. We have seen how much it literally paid to have an established online community. Grocery stores, clothing stores, fitness studios, even doctors offices and pharmacies are all using the tools they had in place to virtually continue their services.



    If you have an inkling of a desire for freedom, peace of mind, and sustainability, there is no time like today to start your own online memberships.



    When your brick + mortar is closed, online business will not!



    We do not know what tomorrow holds. At the beginning of the year, who would have thought that nearly everything would be closed down for a global pandemic? If you had known, you would have been prepared ahead of time. Unfortunately, we have to come to grips with the reality that we have to expect every possibility. Because, as we’ve seen, storms whether literal or spiritual, usually hit at the same time.



    But, what businesses were able to stay open? The ones with no physical doors to shut. This is why having a multi-faceted online presence is essential. 



    Going back to Jennifer, the only thing she needed to keep her studio open was  the internet and her passion to help others through yoga. That’s it.



    You already have the God-Given talents that it takes to be successful. All you need is 1) internet access, 2) an idea (which we can help you with), 3) the desire for freedom and peace of mind, by using those talents virtually.



    Online memberships can sustain existing businesses.



    Let’s use Jennifer as an example here: 1) she had monthly memberships to her physical yoga studio 2) she found a way to keep her business alive by utilizing those memberships online. It was literally as simple as it sounds. Even after Tennessee’s Governor closed non-essential businesses because of COVID-19 Jennifer is still keeping your studio open by...

Real People Changing People’s Lives

I just discovered Shane and Jocelyn about three months ago and it is crazy how much they have taught me in such a short time. Every time I listen to their podcast I learn something new and the community is even more amazing. They are honest and good hearted people who try their best to connect with their audience. I’ve already had the opportunity to have conversations with them and they are so helpful! I have taken massive steps towards having a successful online business and could not have done it without them. I am so thankful for what they do!
