We know that often the hardest part of starting a business is just getting started, not because you're not willing to do the work, but because the prospect of turning your blank slate into a viable business can be daunting. Where do you even begin? And how do you know your idea will even work?
That's where we come in.
Over the past seven years, our team has coached and mentored more than 12,000 bloggers and online business owners. We know exactly what works, and what doesn't. Not only that, we're positively brimming with ideas for new business concepts based on our collective experience so far.
So let us help you.
We'll start by sitting down with you to understand more about you and the business you want to create--your ideas, your passion, your life experience, and the customer you'd like to serve. We'll then help you nail down a comprehensive vision for your business, including a kick-ass name, tagline, and logo, as well as a plan for what your Core Offer should be.
Then let us do it for you.
From there there, we won't just advise you on what to do next, we'll actually make it happen. We'll set up and design your website, create your brand guide, write your first seven blog posts, optimize them for SEO, create your blog post graphics, set up your social channels and hook up your email service provider, all while you focus on learning how to operate an online business through our step-by-step curriculum.
In just eight weeks, we'll have your online business ready to go.
Due to the highly customized nature of this service, space in our done-for-you program is extremely limited. Here's how to know whether this option might be right for you.
Why let yourself get bogged down in the tedious and cumbersome details of starting an online business, when you could be focused on understanding how to make it grow? Through our streamlined process, we’ll help you lay the foundation for your online business faster and easier than you ever thought possible, as well as maximize your efforts from beginning to end.
Here's how it works:
Every business and client is unique, which is why our work together will begin with learning everything we can about you and the business you want to build. We’ll work with you to explore, research and understand your preferences, your passions, your strengths and your ideas in order to bring them to life. Approximately 2 weeks
Once we've had a chance to get to know you and understand the business you want to build, our team will put our heads together and develop your custom strategy, including nailing down your customer avatar & messaging, as well as concrete ideas for your Core Offer, Lead Magnet and Entry Offer. We'll then present you with a detailed road map of what your business funnel will look like when fully built. Approximately 1 week
With your big-picture strategy in place, we'll next decide on the essential details of your business--your business name & tagline, your website URL, your business logo, and your brand guide. Approximately 1 week
From there, we'll get busy building your website, including designing an effective home page, setting up your social media channels, writing your website sales copy, inserting photos & essential company information, and writing and publishing your first 7 blog posts. Approximately 3 weeks.
In our final stage, we'll optimize your entire website and blog content for better search results and create Pinterest images for each of your 7 blog posts, as well as set up your email service provider. We'll then conclude our time together with a final meeting to review what we've built and what you'll need to do from here. Approximately 1 week
Whether you just want help nailing down your concept and getting your website up & running, or whether you'd rather have our team's expertise guide you all the way through the creation of your first product, our EBA® Premier done-for-you packages are designed to get real results, faster than you ever thought possible.
FOUNDATION PACKAGE INCLUDES:
INCLUDES EVERYTHING IN FOUNDATION, PLUS:
For our Foundation package, our goal will be to complete all deliverables within 8 weeks of your initial discovery call, and for our Foundation Plus package, our goal will be to complete all deliverables within 12-16 weeks. That said, how quickly we work will be largely dependent on your response time. Any delays in providing us with information or decisions may delay your timeline.
While our team will be doing the heavy-lifting, it's important that you understand the strategy behind everything that we do so that you are ready to take the reins and begin operating your business as soon as it's built. As such, we recommend that you focus your time on understanding the Customer Superhero Path™ strategy we teach within the ACTIVATE Coaching Program by going through our Level One & Level Two curriculum.
You'll also be expected to meet with your build team once a week for progress updates & input. Generally, these meetings will be short, sweet and to the point!
You'll be hands-on in the sense that we'll be bringing your vision for your business to life. Thus, the more you can share with us during your Discovery Call, the clearer we'll be on what you want for your business. That said, if you're short on ideas, we'll definitely help you fill in the gaps!
During the build process, your hands-on involvement will be limited to our weekly check-ins, but you will have input on the final decisions for your business name & branding, based on our recommendations. Whenever possible, we'll try to give you a few different options to choose from.
One of the requirements for The EBA Premier program is that you use our recommended tools & software. Your website will be set up on Wordpress with the Kadence theme and our own special ACTIVATE child theme, and we will set up your email service provider on ConvertKit. If you choose the Foundation Plus package, we will set up your opt-in and sales pages on LeadPages, and your shopping cart on Shopify.
We will set these programs up for you, but they will be set up under your name. Once we have them set up, we will show you how to navigate, and you'll also be able to access our tutorials for each program within our What the Tech?! Digital Tutorial Library.
Yes. You'll likely need to pay for your website hosting, your ACTIVATE theme, ConvertKit, LeadPages, and Shopify.
Plenty! Joining The EBA Premier program includes one full year of membership in the ACTIVATE coaching program. You'll have access to weekly coaching calls, not to mention our full library of training curriculum.
Aside from our initial Discovery call, which will likely take between 60 and 90 minutes, your weekly update calls will be short, sweet, and to-the-point--usually between 15 and 30 minutes max.
We're open to future custom packages designed to help you grow your list, develop & deliver your core offer, and build your sales funnels. Contact us for more details.
