How to craft a Money Making Message [Action Required]

Are you an entrepreneur, a coach, a business owner who wants to grow their business?

Do you want to reach more clients so you increase your sales and achieve the success and freedom you want?

If your answers to the above questions were Yes!, a strong and loud Yes!, continue reading.

Online marketing is a great way to reach a wider audience.

But how do you stand out? 

First of all to stand out, you need to show up. Show up in your authentic, awesome way! You are special, unique and one of a kind! There is no one else like you in the entire Universe! No matter how hard we try to find someone like you, we will not.

What is your voice? What makes you unique?

Figure that out and success is guaranteed. Audiences love the truth! We all crave for it. It is so scarce that when we get a taste of it, we are stuck! It is addictive and we want more and more.

Once you discover the authentic you, what do you do?

What comes next?

The next step is to Step in the Spotlight!

Let the your talents shine bright. Let the star in you shine bright. Stand on "stage", in front of everyone and let the world know "This is me and here I am!"

Align your mind, heart and gut and you will speak from your truth. And then people will come and they will follow you wherever you will take them.

Then there are practical steps you can take to Show Up and Brand Up.

But remember, mindset comes first! I can give you the best script for achieving great sales. If you do not believe you can make the sale, your words will be empty and the result poor.

First you need to raise your energy, your self confidence and then step into the action.

Like an actor, you need to believe you are the Role and then step on stage. Do your preparation first, build up the character first.

So you did all the mindset work and you are ready!

What is next?

I am a great supporter of Video for your marketing. The numbers agree with me too.

As you can see, the numbers when it comes to VIDEO are amazing!





80% remember the video, 26% look for more information and 12% actually make a purchase!

If you are not using video yet to grow your business, you are leaving money on the table. Money that could be spend in awesome ways!





Video can support you in your email marketing too.

Take a look at these numbers!

Don't they put a smile on your face?


Once you decide to actually use Video and grow your business by reaching more people and ideal clients, how do you craft your message?

What kind of videos do you produce?

The first thing you need to pay attention to is


We all love stories! Make sure your videos, your posts, tell a story.

Find a creative way to talk about:

1. The problem you help solve

2. Your ideal client

3. The transformation they will go through

4. Your story

5. What makes you unique.

Let yourself free and allow creativity to take over!

Looking forward to seeing you in your videos! Post a link to them below so we can all show up and support you.
