This is a hill I'm willing to die on:
Relationships are worth so much more than numbers
But wait - that’s not what the internet tells us to do! We’re meant to grow at all costs, build our list, scale - AND relationships are only valuable if they have an ROI.
Yeah, that’s bollocks.
Chasing growth usually comes at the expense of connection
And connection, my lovely, is the name of the game. The real secret to getting all of the good stuff you’re craving. And yep, that includes business success too.
love>numbers - a 6-week community experience designed to teach you everything you need to know about getting connected and building a network online.
Here’s the real truth:
Marketing and sales can (and should) feel like hanging out with your mates.
AND - the best kept secret of online business success is that most folks build their businesses not through funnels and massive email lists but through personal connections and behind the scenes conversations.
It’s connection that is key.
Do you know what another word for connection is? Love.
AND there’s no funnel in the world that can give you, or your potential raving, adores-the-pants-off-you fan, that feeling.
That’s why love truly is greater than numbers when it comes to building a business that’s going to last.
Why place our attention on love and connection?
There’s a lot of talk in the online space about growing your audience, being seen by a wider group, and attracting your ideal clients.
A lot of people suggest you do this by:
Randomly spamming podcast hosts asking to be on their show.
Hiring a consultant for Facebook ads to promote your opt in/new course/downloadable doodad and watching the money drain out of your PayPal account with precious little to show for it.
Paying out eye watering amounts of money to a coach who will teach you the ‘secret to high ticket sales’ and then spending your time hyperventilating in the corner at the sheer amount of sleazy self promotion that’s demanded of you (not to mention learning manipulative high pressure sales tactics that you can’t bring yourself to do).
Post more! more! more! on social media, chasing followers and growing your ‘audience’ without having any way to turn those followers into potential customers.
Connection, on the other hand, bypasses all of the sleaze, hustle and empty toxicity of the online business world. And you never know where a new connection will lead…
In one month alone…
⦁ I was invited onto two podcasts,
⦁ I was invited to be a guest expert in someone’s membership group,
⦁ I was invited to contribute to a book on being a creative woman,
⦁ I was offered a guest post slot on a popular blog,
⦁ I found the perfect business coach to take me to the next level,
⦁ and I was referred four new potential clients (all of whom I’m now working with).
Not to mention the week I generated a potential $18,000 worth of business simply by having lovely, casual chats with awesome people.
All this is fantastic for my business, right? And I can trace each event back to me just reaching out and saying hello to someone new, not because I thought they could do something for me, but just because they tripped my ‘kindred spirit’ radar.
The long and tall of it is - connection is a way to bypass all of the bullshit out there and create a business that both feels great and is wildly successful.
Connecting online is a skill that can be learned
Who am I?
These are skills that can be learned, I should know. I am introverted to the point of being a recluse, highly sensitive, and I’m autistic - this stuff does not come naturally to me! In fact, in my teens and early twenties I suffered from crippling social anxiety, and I was unable to talk to people or look people in the eye, even members of my own family.
I have learned how to do this from the ground up, and so can you. I understand where you’re coming from and the things that hold you back, because I’ve been there.
To date, I have built three successful businesses from scratch by focusing on talking to people, or more importantly, LISTENING to them (as an introvert this is your superpower), and I’m now not only super well-connected, I also actively enjoy reaching out to new people and having exciting conversations with them.
The fantastic news is, it all comes down to knowing yourself and your limitations/preferences and working within those parameters, oh, and PRACTICE!
And if you’re willing to do that, try something new, step a bit outside of the traditional ‘funnel-hustle-scale’ online mantra, you’re golden.
THAT is what love>numbers is here to help you do.
What love>numbers actually is
love>numbers is a 6-week, cosy and intimate group experience designed to teach you everything you need to know about getting connected, building a network online, and focusing on relationships over follower counts.
You’ll walk away with a proven, repeatable system for building genuine connections online that will last for the life of your business.
You will have a personalised list of 100 (yes, you read that right) people who are great fit connections for you to reach out to, AND a method of doing so that’s human, genuine, and 100% you.
You’ll have access to me at every step of the way, helping you craft those personal touch messages, checking things out for you when you feel unsure and generally being the bounciest ‘can-do’ cheerleader for you and your business.
I’ll show you how you can turn the right connections into clients in a way that places sovereignty and equal power balance at the heart of that relationship so it’s never manipulative and always a win-win for both parties.
Your business will feel like a lovely extension of who you are in the world - not something that’s filled with formulas, ROI and data points.
It will feel like a total no-brainer for the right people to hire you - because they will already know, like and trust you as well as understanding who you are as a human (rather than as a distant internet drone).
You’ll never feel like a spambot. Like ever. I promise.
