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.

Welcome to Season 2 of the Get Paid Podcast! For the next 10 episodes, I’ll be joined by my lovely co-host, Val Geisler, so we can dive deeper into some of the topics that my guests and I touched on in Season 1.

In this episode, Val and I discuss the myth (or is it a myth) of the 6-figure business, and what it actually takes to get there.

In this episode you’ll hear:

  • The importance of knowing your target audience.
  • Why understanding the basics of owning an online business is important to your success.
  • How being an entrepreneur can help you find and hone your innate talent and how fear can affect the success of your business.
  • Why having a solid business foundation is essential to creating successful Facebook ad campaigns.
  • Lessons we have learned from other successful entrepreneurs that have helped our own
  • What strategies we have used and found success from in the early years of our businesses.
  • Why becoming an expert in a specific niche is more lucrative and sustainable than diversifying your business.
  • How “serving yourself” can help you better serve your clients.
  • Why sharing your expert tips with others, for free, can lead to better conversion rates.
  • Why it’s important to let your personality shine through the online content you create.
