How I Quit 1:1 and Now Make 50k+ p/Month Online, Part 3 – The Crazy Spur of the Moment Decision That Literally Increased My Online Income Tenfold
Hooks – the real gift Jon gave me – confidence and self-belief, energy to keep on keeping on
My crazy spur of the moment decision
The first thing Jon said – which still sticks with me today – is that I was a great writer; one of the best he’d seen from the hundreds of submissions for the competition. As somebody who had always dreamt of ‘being a writer’ but who was starting to question whether she was really any good after all, this meant more to me than I can describe. It was just such a relief to hear as I’d gotten to the point where I figured that if I WAS any good surely my subscriber numbers should be reflecting that.
Are you ready to hear what his advice to me was? It was really very simple, but still something I think can massively boost a brand new blog or online business and can also (perhaps to a slightly lesser extent) be of use to even the most established online entrepreneur –
But not just sporadic guest posting, a diligent and structured attack on the blogosphere to get my name out there.
Within a matter of applying Jon’s advice, my blog subscriber numbers were over 600, then 700, then over 900. It was time to write Jon a great testimonial, which I did – and I also wrote this short article as a guest post submission for Copyblogger – you can see by reading it just how much winning the consult with Jon meant to me, and how it directly impacted my online business!
I think the main thing I took from that consult was reinspiration. We all need somebody to tell us we can do it every now and again! It puts fire in our bellies and reminds us why we’re doing this crazy thing where we spend all of our time ‘glued’ to the computer while others kick back over coffee, reading the paper, watching reality TV or just ‘being normal’.
It took me a couple more months but in January of 2011 I made an ‘in the moment’ decision and then acted on it before I could think better. It was a decision that led to me making over 30,000 through my online business that year. NOt too bad considering that in 2009/2010 combined my total online income had been around 10k, maybe a little more.
After all –
Life is Now. Press Play.
I kinda sorta did something REALLY not ideal! I made a mistake 😞
I then found about that mistake a day or so ago, when one of my amazing clients let me know!
I then fixed it of course, but since then something has been nigglin’ away at me telling me that maybe the mistake was a SIGN and a DIRECTION and I shoulda fixed it the other way!!
What am I talking about? My Easter Extravaganza Instant Manifestation Bundle, which is supposed to close TODAY in just a few hours, and contains 4 of my BEST money and manifestation courses, over 85% off!
As we do, we threw this thing together last minute like usual (aka KAT style) – and somehow managed to put THE WRONG PRICE on the sales page!!! ♀️
– Correct price on order form, when you actually click the buttons.
– Incorrect price on sales page. Doh.
The one on the SALES page was lower, about 25-30% lower than the already reduced 85% off! I think what happened is we copy and pasted off an old previous bundle sales page and so the old price just carried over.
Anyway, a few people pointed it out and obviously we honoured the mistaken lower price while fixing the page for future peeps.
BUTTT … I just felt ugh about it, y’know? Even though the lower price was a mistake! And even though the actual price was literally already 85% off for this offer!
It wouldn’t stop bugging me.
So, long story short, I’m changing it!
My Easter Extravaganza Bundle is now over NINETY PERCENT reduced … for anyone who already bought and paid full we will honour the lower price for you as well of course (watch out for an email later today!) and for everyone who has NOT yet, the price has now been adjusted on the sales page, DOWN!
And, because of the muck around and confusion, I’m extending my bundle sale for one more day into Easter Tuesday 🐣
Jump on now and grab four of my best Money and Manifestation courses now at 90% off, next 24 hours ONLY!!! 💥
Literally just as I finished writing this my brother walked in to my room with my (fixed!) phone. OF COURSE. Everything always works out in my favour. Just like I told ya. And just in time to snap a quick pic for this blog.
Get it! One more day! Lessssgooooo, now 90% off! https://thekatrinaruthshow.com/katrina-ruths-easter-bundle/ —> this price is CRAZY! Extra crazy!!
I wrote half of that with my eyes closed while having makeup done. #ninjaAF
