Amy Porterfield teaches business owners, educators and entrepreneurs the profitable action steps for building a highly engaged email list, creating online training courses, and using online marketing strategies to sell with ease.
Are you ready to be your own boss and create a new online business?  Make the leap from your 9 to 5 and kick start your entrepreneurial journey!  Before I started my business, I would sit in my corporate cubicle and dream about creating a digital course and online business.  The problem was, I had no idea how to create a digital course. I also didn't have an email list, a social media following, or a roadmap to show me how to leave my cubicle behind and build an online business. Raise your hand if you can relate! If this sounds anything like you and you’re ready to make the leap from 9 to 5 cubicle to digital course entrepreneurship, I’m excited for you to hear all about it in this podcast episode. In it, I tell you all about what I’ve learned over the last 11 plus years of building a thriving digital course business -- stories and practices you can put into place today to save you the time and headaches that I experienced along the way. (Boy how I wish someone would have done the same for me early on.)  If you love a few behind-the-scenes stories of my early day hiccups, well then my friend, you’re in for a treat because I’m spilling the beans…. Just wait until you hear how getting yelled at on the tarmac at the airport changed my entrepreneurial journey.  Here’s a glance at this episode... [07:32] I left my corporate job and my first stop was working one-on-one doing social media for small businesses. I fell into the common trap of taking on too many clients. [08:35] For two years, I had a business I hated! [11:55] If you're in a similar situation, let go of a few clients but keep a few as well. Free up the time to create the business of your dreams.  [13:11] Prioritize tiger time. Commit to at least one full hour a week to work on the business you want to work on and nothing else.  [15:15] Start creating consistent content and share it with the world.  [17:53] Devote time to get comfortable on video. Video brings a whole new level of connection with your audience. [19:55] Fuel that big beautiful brain of yours. Becoming the go-to expert in your industry means that you never stop learning. [22:00] Find a mentor or two. Having a coach or mentor that you can meet with on a regular basis is a great way to remain accountable.

Here’s a glance at this episode... [16:05] Jamie shares her secret to getting through years of rejection.  [26:16] Write down things that are inspiring and true about you and keep them in your magic toolbox. (I love this idea!)  [28:46] You're not here to compete with anybody else other than who you're born to become. (Let’s put that on repeat! [41:36] When you're an entrepreneur getting a “no” can definitely feel personal. Figure out how to keep it from being personal and trust the journey.  [48:30] “The failure is never being willing to actually hear who you're called to be and the truth of who you are.” - Jamie Kern Lima
Want to write weekly emails that *actually* get opened? Read on…  That’s right, my friend! Writing your weekly emails doesn’t have to be a chore. In fact, it can be a joy, and my guest in this episode will give you the tools you need to make that a reality.  Her name is Zafira Rajan, and she’s a strategic launch copywriter and soulful strategist committed to helping conscious entrepreneurs build, grow, and scale their businesses using storytelling.  In this episode, she’s sharing a step-by-step for identifying what she calls “Personality Pillars,” which will give you a bank of ideas to have on hand when you’re ready to sit down and write. As well as her top three strategies for creating a weekly non-negotiable ritual for writing consistent email copy. How To Become A Pro Copywriter [09:26] Personality pillars are at the core of how Zafira shows up for brands. It's about showing the dimensions of you. [14:36] Your first pillar is your core values. We all have values and things we stand for whether they are business or personal.  [15:56] Your second pillar is your stamp of weirdness. What do people find weird, funny, natural, or even interesting about you?  [18:15] The third pillar is your intentional impact. Whether you're launching or not, it's important to remind people consistently that you have something that they can buy. [20:54] The fourth pillar is your unapologetic opinion. What point of view do I have that I'm afraid to share? The people who you want to bring into your life and attract will appreciate your point of view. [24:45]  Your fifth element is your “Z” or zest factor. This is what you sprinkle on top of everything to make it uniquely yours. This is the sweet spot between what you do and why people care about it. [32:33] Create an environment that sets a tone for writing or creating content. Design a custom writing ritual. Light a candle and get in the zone. Rate, Review, & Subscribe on Apple Podcasts ‘I love Amy and Online Marketing Made Easy.’ <– If that sounds like you, please consider rating and reviewing my show !
