Claire Pelletreau was just starting to grow her side business as a Facebook ad and marketing consultant when her full-time job disappeared. Desperate to land enough clients just to pay the bills, she was disappointed at how difficult it was to find real tactical advice that would help actually her get paid month to month. The Get Paid Podcast is Claire’s attempt to pull back the curtain on the reality of running an online business. All these people pulling in “six figures” - how are they ACTUALLY doing it? What kind of money do they take home after expenses? What are those expenses, anyway? Are they truly “solopreneurs” or are they supported by a team? What does that team do for them? How are they marketing their offerings and growing their lists? How long did it take to get to where they are? You’ll discover how different entrepreneurs get paid and what it costs them to bring in that money.

Failed launches. Products nobody wanted. A membership site with costly backend problems.


Business coach Melanie Miller was so broke she couldn’t pay for a course that could save her from mistakes, so instead she taught herself with a whole lotta trial and error. Now she makes money in her sleep with the coveted evergreen launch model and two online courses.

In this episode you’ll hear:

-- How Melanie lost 70% of her business coaching client base in 6 weeks.

-- How she learned to create a successful online course without investing in any programs or trainings (because she literally couldn’t afford them).

-- What didn’t work when her current offering was a $47-monthly membership program.

-- Why you can’t join either of Melanie’s courses today.

-- Details on the evergreen launch set-up that drives conversions like crazy.

-- How Melanie got over her icky feelings about creating false scarcity in her marketing.

-- How “audience fatigue” has caused a drop in her profits, and what she’s planning to do about it.

-- Melanie’s productivity hack that I’m trying to implement for myself right now.

-- The surprising effect that creating marketing videos had on Melanie’s business.

-- The potential cost of not being yourself early on in your business.
