Craziest webinar story ever?
A few years ago I was planning a big webinar that would teach about creating online courses and, of course, at the end sell my Create Awesome Online Courses program.
All normal in the day of an online business owner, right?
Anyway…a strange thing happened 48 hours before the webinar.
A new buddy of mine (who I met through a mutual friend), John Richardson, contacted me pretty much out of the blue as he saw I was doing a webinar. Here is how the convo went:
(picture an epic Irish accent when John is talking below…)
John: “David, mate. It’s John. You have a webinar in 48 hours, right?”
David: “Um, yah.”
John: “Great! How do your webinars normally do? Do you make lots of sales?”
David: “Well, honestly…it can be hit or miss. Sometimes a lot of sales. Sometimes not so much. I do always get good feedback (people loving the content) but sometimes that doesn’t translate to sales. I feel as though I occasionally give too much away and not sure how strong my pitch is.”
John: “Ahhhhhh! I totally get it. I used to have the same issues. Inconsistency, giving too much away, not sure if I was going to make sales. But, I learned a format that WORKS. Not only will the audience love the free content and get great training, but they will also buy (many, many, more).”
David: “Yah, that does sounds similar situation.”
John: “And the crazy thing is this format of doing your webinars is definitely replicable. I’ve used it for all kinds of stuff from golf training to a coffee shop training product. One of my webinars make 6 figures on autopilot. I can show you how to do it.”
David: “Like…now? I have the freakin’ webinar in 48 hours!”
John: “Yes, now. C’mon let’s do it. It will work.”
I was conflicted. Should I just do the webinar the way I normally did (honestly, no idea what I was doing and sort of hoping it would work) OR should I take a risk and listen to John?
Being an entrepreneur, sometimes the best decisions are those split second ones that change the course of your business forever…and this happened to be one of them.
I thought to myself…well I’ll give it a shot. If it is a massive bomb/failure then I can just blame John 🙂
So then on the spot, he taught me exactly what to do. We are talking STEP BY FREAKIN’ STEP here. He showed me his webinar that makes the most sales and exactly why it does so well (and people love it ) and how I could copy the format.
And, like a crazy person, I redid my presentation (48 hours before, hah) and followed along exactly what he taught me.
Even though, honestly, I was skeptical on some of it but I followed every word of what he said (just goes to show you…trust the teacher and the system).
Then it was webinar time. Would it flop, rock or be some in-between?
Guess what happened?
My sales DOUBLED (actually almost freakin’ tripled) from my previous webinars. I ended up selling $38,336 worth of programs on a small webinar.
I remember sitting there dumbfounded. Really? Did that just happen? What in the heck?
Was it a fluke?
Then I put it to use again and brought in an additional $121,724.00.
And it kept going from there (now over $4,000,000 in sales via webinars using John’s format…I know crazy pills, right?)
Because I couldn’t keep this to myself, and I have a big mouth, I taught (with his permission of course!) some of John’s strategies he taught me at a Mastermind I was at in California.
James Wedmore (y’all know him, right?) did exactly what I did and re-wrote his presentation he was giving THE NEXT DAY (made my 48 hours look like amateur hour).
And then I got this text from him:
“Duddddeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, it totally worked. My webinar conversion % went from 6.1% to to 13.2! Over double. Thanks so much!!!”
In a nutshell, James sold way more stuff, too 🙂
So, I reached out to John and asked (ahem…begged/bribed/pleaded) if he would teach this exact step-by-step system for doing webinars that sell to more people because this is SUCH an important strategy that you can use over and over again.
The good news?
He said yes (picture an Irishman yelling “I’ll do it!).
Then this wacky story takes yet another turn…
I convinced John to teach this webinar blueprint during a live online workshop. The workshop sold out in less than 48 hours and the results of folks who applied this system have been crazy nuts.
Whether you are selling your online course, coaching program, software, something-else-amazing or pre-sell a product you haven’t created yet…webinars are a skill you MUST master.
But…there is also much more to a webinar than having a crazy amazing presentation that converts (even though, duh, that is super important).
You might be thinking…
How do I get folks to sign up for my webinar?
How do I come up with the perfect title that gets peeps super excited to sign up?
How do I handle the tech? What is the easiest way to setup everything and present?
When I get folks to sign up, how do I convince them to actually SHOW UP? (if you have a perfect presentation and nobody sees it…um that’s not good!)
What about follow up? What do I do? Do I offer a replay? How long should I keep it up? What emails should I send out?
And that my friend is how Create Awesome Webinars was born.
