What’s In This Episode:
“You can’t sell anything to people that they don’t already need. ” – Brad
Mel McSherry calls in to discuss mailing lists: How can she do it authentically without being salesy? Brad says that if Mel has a valuable service, she has to sell it. Jill advises her to continue doing and interacting with people as she already has been, just in an email format, and she’ll be able to succeed. But she needs to be aware of the fact that even if people are subscribed, they need to be invested in what she’s doing if they’re going to get updates about it. So think about what it is that her audience needs?
“We need to know what’s challenging for us versus what’s not.” – Jill

- Phase two: growth – this is where the work is
- Phase three: stability – your team helps with expansion
