We are looking forward to publishing a lot more content on our blog this year in 2017. If you’ve seen our 2017 social media plan on our blog recently, you know podcasting is one of our top priorities here at Classy Career Girl. Why? Because we love that iTunes has no algorithm and if you are subscribed (thank you by the way) we know that you will be able to get our content immediately unlike Facebook or Instagram which have an algorithm. So thank you for listening and we will do our best to bring you the very best we have to offer in 2017!
So let’s get into today’s episode. Today we are featuring a Q&A training I did all about creating your offer and the Freedom Business Roadmap. If you don’t know what the Freedom Roadmap and you have a dream to start or grow a business then I highly recommend signing up for our Freedom Workshop that is going on now through January 11th, 2017. You can sign up at www.corporaterescueplan.com/freedom.
Today’s podcast is all the questions participants in the workshop had about the freedom business roadmap, websites, blogging and lead magnets. So let’s dive in and answer your questions!
The Freedom Business Roadmap: 5 Things You Need To Grow Your Business
1. CEO Mindset
You have to switch from an employee mindset to an entrepreneur mindset. You don’t have to sit in your office for 8 hours a day being “busy” instead the time you put into your business must be focused on revenue producing activities. It’s now time to think like a manager, not a doer.
Your website is your home base. Social media can change in a blink of an eye. We need to create a place where your followers can always find you now and in 5-10 years from now. You want your ideal clients to keep coming back to your website to see your latest articles, deals, products or services.

3. Email List
In order to have the freedom you want, you need to start building an email list of people who know, like and trust you. People won’t come and see your website every day or see your posts. You have little control over who sees what on Facebook and other social media sites. That’s why you want to be able to send an email to their inbox when you are ready to sell something.
4. Social Media
Pick one platform and master it. Find out where your customers are hanging out and focus in. What social media platform are they on before they shut off their phone and go to bed. What is the first social media site they open in the morning when they wake up? If you don’t know, ask them!
5. Lead Magnet
A lead magnet is a valuable free giveaway that you create for your ideal client. You give it away in exchange for their contact information. A lead magnet builds a relationship. It is where you are going to give your best stuff away for free. It is where you are going to give a sneak peek of your products or services. This can also be a coupon or discount if you are a store or sell products in exchange for their contact information.
