The Simple Way to Create a System
After all, this type of business is about FREEDOM.
And you need to master something that most people ignore. We focus on “traffic” and “google”, when you should start with this one word..
Now I have to admit that I have taken far too long to understand the importance of this – and this is why I don’t want you wasting loads of time like I have done in the past.
No matter what you do, you must be able to create a system out of it. And your system doesn’t have to be complicated to start.
As I began to work with more and more clients I realised that every time I was repeating the same information over and over to them. They would need to know how to set up their WordPress site – so I’d help them do it. They would need to know how to set up Aweber, so I would walk them through it. They would need to know how to get their product approved on Clickbank, so I’d walk them through it. I’d go over the process of how to create an awesome Opt-in offer.
Now, FINALLY!! I have created videos, templates and checklists for all those things that get repeated over and over again no matter who I am working with.
Or, if I have a new project or product I’m creating, I simply write down EVERY STEP and put it into a google doc. This makes it easy if you want to share it with a team. That’s it. I don’t leave anything to memory.
But it’s not just about documenting any processes, I also document what tasks need doing during a new product release.
For example, if there is a new product I’m creating, I might have the following in the document… (and yes, it’s a fictional product!)
- 1. Product Title and Summary: How to build your own membership site. It’s 4 online videos showing people how to build their own membership site. Step by step. We are going live on October 1st.
2. Price: $495
- 2. Set up sales page
- 3. Record a video
- 4. Write sales page copy
- 5. Create a new list in Aweber
- 6. Write autoresponder series
- 7. Link payment System
- 8. Refund Policy
- 9. Online Access page
- 10. Schedule date for promotion cal
- 11. Decide on Bonuses to offer
- 12. FAQ’s: this is where I’d add some typical questions like “is this for newbies?” “does it include software?”
Once this list is finished, I allocate deadlines dates to each of the tasks. Next step is to decide who is responsible for completing each task. It is mine, or am I going to delegate that to a team member?
Just by creating a simple document saves me dozens of hours in email, confusion and overwhelm.
Now get out there and start documenting everything.
