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.

“Do exactly what I did and you’ll have the same kind of success as me!” It’s a painfully common marketing message, but I’m calling BULLSHIT. You can try all the formulas and strategies in the world but in the end, your results will depend on something that can’t be taught: who YOU are and how the world perceives and responds to YOU.


Guest Tara Gentile is the creator of the Quiet Power Strategy and she goes deep into how she’s not following any of the typical Internet Marketing rules to grow her business, and why she wishes you wouldn’t either.


In this episode you’ll hear:


-- the tweaks Tara suggests I make to one of my own sales strategies, one I was about to completely give up on

-- how much her business brought in in 2014, and the breakdown of all those revenue streams

-- the new offerings she’s adding to her business to keep serving (and getting paid by) her existing client base, plus the tool she uses to help others figure out new ways to work with people who have already converted

-- the non-traditional way that Tara launched - and priced - her now signature Quiet Power Strategy group coaching program the first time out of the gate

-- her recent technique for filling a $3500 program with 40 people who were so comfortable with the investment that she had ZERO refunds

-- how much it costs her to run each launch

-- what her biggest expenses are, both in her business and her personal life (I was VERY surprised by some of these)

-- the make-up of Tara’s team and what each person’s role is

-- what it’s like when your mom is your project manager

-- her strongest lead-generation strategy (that actually gets her paid in addition to moving people through the Know, Like and Trust process)

-- how you can go meet up with Tara this summer on her unique tour around the U.S. (Spoiler alert: there’s beer involved.)
