Hey Y’all, welcome to another Flipped Lifestyle Podcast Q&A w/ S&J!
In the Flip Your Life Community, we hold a members-only Q&A twice a month where we answer online business questions of our members live on air!
This podcast episode features some of the highlights of these recent live member Q&As to give you a glimpse of how we help the members of our community, and help you as well in online business by listening in.
Today’s Q&A highlights answer the following questions:
“Here’s my questions… I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed at the moment. I have a LOT going on right now with my business. I’m excited, nervous, and stressed all at once.
A lot of stuff is about to take off. I’m piloting a new in-person workshop for nurses this weekend (it’s sold out!), and I’ll be rolling it out to my Instructors next year. My childbirth class has 30 Instructors signed up to train to teach it in November. I need to finish my book before Nashville, too.
I just need some words of encouragement.”
“Hi Guys … I finished my product revision and bonuses and started advertising on Facebook over the weekend. I’m selling a Christmas play script and four bonuses for $97. I’m targeting worship pastors and children’s pastors right now – those were the only groups I could find in the FB audience.
So far, I’ve spent $15.00 and have had 31 clicks to my website with three of those people submitting their email address to read the script. So far no sales, but I’m not surprised as it often takes time to make a decision to choose a Christmas play script and it often has to go through committees or pastoral approval. (I am running a drip campaign to follow-up with them.)
My question is this: so far, each script download has costs me $5.00. Is that normal?
No idea what my actual cost per lead will cost until people start buying. Maybe it’s too early to know whether or not the $5.00 per lead is worth it?”
“I was recently approached by a publisher about writing and publishing a cookbook the traditional route. The publisher is distributed by a large, familiar company, so I’d have the opportunity to be in all of the bookstores, big box stores, etc.
On one hand, I like the idea, because it gets me out in front of a different audience and is a way to get my name out there and give me even more authority than I already have. On the other hand, it’s a ton of work, for sometimes little pay (depending on the advance that is negotiated and how long it takes you to start earning royalties) and I’ve heard that in many cases all that you ever end up getting paid, is the advance.
Do you have any advice for me?”
