The Essence of Resources in Heart-Centered Businesses

In the pursuit of your purpose, every resource plays a vital role. Financial investments, human efforts, and time are invaluable components that shape your ability to connect with your audience. To truly thrive, respect and harness these resources wisely.

Action Item: Conduct a thorough audit of your current resource allocation. Identify areas where resources may be underutilized or misdirected and reallocate them for maximum impact.

Unveiling the Cost

In the realm of heart-centered small businesses, resources are the lifeblood that fuels your mission to guide, inspire, and transform lives. However, the absence of a well-crafted marketing strategy can lead to a significant pain point: wasted resources.

Strategic Spending Over Trial-and-Error

Overspending on ineffective campaigns is a common pitfall for businesses without a clear marketing strategy. Avoid the risk of financial strain by developing a thoughtful plan that focuses on targeted, impactful marketing efforts rather than blindly experimenting.

Action Item: Set specific, measurable goals for your marketing campaigns. Regularly assess their performance and adjust your strategy based on data to ensure efficient resource utilization.

Focused Impact Over Scattered Efforts

While diversifying marketing efforts is essential, spreading them too thin across various platforms can dilute your brand’s impact. Strategic planning ensures that your resources remain concentrated, amplifying your presence where it matters most.

Action Item: Identify the platforms and channels that align best with your target audience. Streamline your marketing efforts on these key channels to maximize impact without unnecessary dispersion.

Preserving Resources for Lasting Impact

Wasted resources extend beyond financial losses; they include time, energy, and dedication. Protect your hard-earned investments by crafting a strategic path that safeguards your resources for long-term success.

Action Item: Implement time-management techniques and tools to ensure that your team’s efforts are aligned with strategic goals. This will prevent burnout and ensure sustained commitment to your mission.

The Power of a Well-Crafted Marketing Strategy

To overcome the cost of wasted resources, heart-centered small businesses must prioritize the development of a comprehensive marketing strategy. This plan provides the structure and direction needed to make the most of your resources, aligning your efforts with your goals and resonating with your ideal audience.

Action Item: Develop a detailed marketing plan that outlines your goals, target audience, and key strategies. Regularly review and adapt the plan to evolving market dynamics, ensuring ongoing relevance and impact.

Are you ready to take your heart-centered business to new heights?

I hope so because Kajabi’s Creator Studio (still in beta) will revolutionize your content creation and marketing efforts. I have played with this new, innovative tool, and it will empower you, making marketing your business easier than ever before.

In this blog post, we’ll dive into the potential of Creator Studio and how it can help you generate compelling content in minutes.

 

Repurpose Your Content with Ease

Creator Studio is a game-changer, allowing you to quickly and easily repurpose your existing content into a wide array of new content. This feature is invaluable for businesses seeking to reach more people in less time. 

So get ready to effortlessly create content for various channels, including social media clips, blog posts, emails, landing page copy, and more.

A Game-Changer for Heart-Centered Businesses

Embrace this new era of content creation and watch your heart-centered business thrive in the digital realm. The possibilities are endless, and the journey is bound to be extraordinary.

Podcasting

Content Variety at Your Fingertips 

One of the most exciting aspects of Creator Studio is the diversity of content you can generate. With just a few clicks, you can have enough content to market your courses, podcasts, communities, or coaching services for weeks. You can select up to fifteen types of content, and all content repurposed from the same video will live in the same project.

Streamlined Project Creation

Creating a project is a breeze. From the Creator Studio homepage, select “New project” and choose the video you want to repurpose. Next, select the marketing content you wish to create from it, such as landing page copy, video clips, email copy, transcripts, and more. This intuitive process makes it easy to get started.

Real-World Application

To help you visualize the potential of Creator Studio, let’s explore a practical example. Imagine you have a freebie video related to your heart-centered business. You can now access various summaries and clips that you can use in social media posts. Additionally, you can update your landing page with a modified version of the lead generation copy it proposes after customization to fit your voice, as demonstrated here.

Video Editing Made Simple

Within the video editor, you have the flexibility to trim your video, upload a logo, add text, and change the background color. The Creator Studio is all about putting customization in your hands, ensuring that your content aligns perfectly with your brand.

On-the-Fly Adjustments

If you ever need to create additional media types that you didn’t select in your initial round of content creation, Creator Studio has you covered. While in the project, you can click “add media” and select more media types to generate.

Social Media Integration

Kajabi’s Creator Studio even integrates with social media platforms! You can share your video to Facebook and Instagram and Facebook Groups you are a member of. You even have the option to let your Instagram Reel appear on your account’s grid. Plus, can share your videos directly to your LinkedIn account, expanding your reach across various platforms.

Beta Phase Considerations

It’s important to note that the Creator Studio can only connect to one Facebook username/password per Kajabi account for Facebook pages, Facebook groups, and Instagram business accounts. Be sure to keep this in mind as you explore the platform’s capabilities.

We are super excited for the Creator Studio!

The Creator Studio is a revolutionary tool that empowers businesses to simplify their content creation and marketing efforts. With this tool at your disposal, you can unlock your brand’s full potential and reach a broader audience with ease.

Should I use ThriveCart with Kajabi?

Should I use ThriveCart with Kajabi?

I’ve taken a couple of roles where the clients have ended up with Kajabi and ThriveCart and wonder why they need both. There are a few reasons to use ThriveCart with Kajabi. It’s great to understand the differences between these services and how you can use them together – and I have the notes to share! 

Let’s take a look at ThriveCart first.

 

What is ThriveCart?

ThriveCart is a service that helps you build sales funnels and order pages for offering your digital and physical products. 

It doesn’t connect natively to Kajabi, so we have to use Zapier to grant the offers or submit a form with additional information to my clients’ Kajabi sites.

 

The Upsides

Currently, the price of ThriveCart is a one-time fee. At either $500 or $700, you pay no more!

With ThriveCart, you have all payment options on the same checkout page, which is something I prefer compared to Kajabi. You don’t have to create a landing page to choose between annual and monthly. Instead, the checkout page will offer all payment options for that product. Overall, ThriveCart offers a nicer checkout experience. 

ThriveCart has more suggestive buying. The upsell, downsell, and order bumps are all easy to set up. This makes sense since converting is what ThriveCart is all about!

It also integrates with Google Sheets, so you can easily automate a spreadsheet for easy review of sales for a campaign. 

ThriveCart does fixed commissions or percentages as opposed to Kajabi’s percentages only. 

You can take it to the next level with Joint Venture management.

 

The Downsides

One of my biggest peeves is the zaps. There can be a lot of Zaps! With some clients, we must upgrade during an event month, but you can downgrade a couple of weeks later. 

There can also be quite a bit of time setting up the zaps depending on how many products and offers you have. It’s not something you want to use when offering unique payment plans to individuals. 

Of course, all the zapping comes after you’ve created the products and offers within Kajabi and the products in ThriveCart! 

After the purchase, the product and offer will look like it was free when you look at it from within Kajabi. Kajabi should never be your go-to financial system, but it is nice to have it show paid when it is an “all-in-one” platform. Some people do not want to jump around multiple systems. 

 

So do we want to use ThriveCart with Kajabi? 

Well, it depends. What are your priorities? 

After weighing the points above, how do you feel about it?

If your priority is to have a great sales funnel and convert leads, and you are willing to take the time to set up the ThriveCart products and the zaps to go with them, do it! If you want to create high converting cart pages, upsells & affiliate campaigns with ease check out ThriveCart today.

If you feel that Kajabi does well enough and keeps everything in one place, then that’s where it’s at for you!
