Lead Magnet Magic Masterclass

Without a steady stream of new leads, your business won’t last. But it’s not just a matter of attracting all the leads you can, it’s about attracting the RIGHT leads. 

  • The people who want what you have to offer.
  • The people who need a solution to their challenges.
  • The people who can afford to pay you what you’re worth.

Those are the RIGHT leads.

And, while this master class is called Lead Magnet Magic, learning how to create the lead magnets that attract the right people is more about following a process than actually performing magic.

Messaging Mastery Blueprint

Humans justify our emotional buying decisions with facts, but emotion rules the game. 70% of decision-making is emotional according to Gallup. It only makes sense that we need to connect with our ideal audience on an emotional level to give ourselves the best chance of making more sales.

This masterclass will teach you how to do just that. It includes step-by-step video guidance, a workbook, and instructions about how to use this powerful method successfully in your business for years to come.

Recommended Accounting Systems

As an entrepreneur, you need to develop some financial and accounting skills. Even if you hire a bookkeeper or accountant, you've still got to track your expenses and revenue so you can pass that information off to them. So, which tool should you use? Quickbooks is an option, but it's expensive and not very user-friendly.

Lucky for you, Deirdre Harter, CPA, has a tried-and-true (and free) recommendation for you. Oh, and don't let the fact that it's free make you believe it's not powerful because it is.
