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.

Erin and Mike Kelly are the husband-and-wife team who co-founded Membervault, a fantastic tool that allows business owners to sell to their clients without feeling pushy or terrible for selling good stuff. The couple created MemberVault to help business owners increase sales through tracking, gamification, and personalized engagement. Aside from offering an “everything in one place" solution for their client's market, MemberVault continues to amaze their clients with their forever free account where clients can access all of platform’s amazing features.


Erin and Mike join me today to discuss what a SaaS platform is and how they make money through this platform. They explain what a “user” is regarding the different plans offered at MemberVault, how they track and engage users, and what made them decide to offer all of the features in the free plan. They also share how they manage to juggle running an online business while parenting two small children, how their family dynamics changed when their children were born and how it impacted their decision to become digital nomads.
