Not to be all woo woo goo-roo here, but I truly believe to have success in business, you MUST be a giver. A giver of your time, your influence, your wisdom, your connections.
Take my dear friend and business associate, Mitch Russo.
Mitch is a very successful serial entrepreneur and master CEO business consultant, who helps some of the top earners in the world create certification programs, grow and streamline their operations, and leverage their existing business actions for greater return on investment.
He is always looking for ways to introduce his business associates to others who may enjoy them, help them in their next projects, or add some sort of value or interest to their lives.
In short…Mitch is a giver. He gives of his connections and his knowledge and, in return, people like and trust him enough to introduce him and recommend him to some of the biggest names in the world.
People like Tony Robbins and Intuit and Chet Holmes…and many more.
Mitch and I met in a high level mastermind last year…one that cost 5-figures to join…and one couldn’t really afford at the time.
Connecting in that mastermind, with Mitch and others, is one of the many reasons I always encourage people to STRETCH to make investments in themselves. That same mastermind I couldn’t really afford to join has created more wealth and business for me than I paid by a factor of 3…and it’s only been a year.
Listen, online and email marketing is an incredible way to get your message out, to listen to people, and, yes…even to create personal and lifelong connections for yourself.
Yet, it is only one way to sell your wares…and for freelancers or those selling one-to-one, online marketing is not always the best way.
*GASP, OMG, Lindsay, You are A COPYWRITER…are you seriously saying that?
Becoming a connector of people by providing thoughtful introductions based on business needs, common interests, similar location, family heritage, etc. will begin to build the bond necessary for REAL relationships.
Similar in principle to content marketing (where you give of your knowledge to create an instinct of reciprocity with your market resulting in sales later on)…
ideal for generating goodwill between you and those you connect, while helping those in your circles reach their personal and professional goals.
Imagine your group of close friends. Your inner circle. Make a list.
Now imagine 10 people you just met, be it at a conference, online, or whatever. Make a list.
Finally, make one connection. Perhaps you recently met a very talented floral designer at your local coffee shop, and someone in your inner circle is planning a party.
Or, perhaps your trusted virtual assistant needs more hours, and you recently met someone at a conference who has a very fast growing business and needs leverage.
Or maybe you met a freelance copywriter who would benefit from my coaching, my deep dives, or my daily emails…
INTRODUCE THEM. See how quickly just one, thoughtful introduction helps grow your own connections, and with it, your own prosperity.
More on connecting for success to come…

If you gave me 5 minutes for my survey above, THANK YOU. Your survey responses brought interest and intrigue into my life, and I’m glad to know you better.
The average time to complete was 4.44 minutes. (LUCKY!) And your honesty will help me give you exactly what you want to help your business grow.
Win/Win my friend…win/win.
An old subscriber to my email list, a man who unsubscribed immediately upon learning I would be sending daily emails, felt it necessary to give me a piece of advice before leaving.
“Nobody wants to hear from you every day”
I’ve also had clients really worried they would turn off their own large lists if they begin to email more than the boring ONCE A WEEK newsletter, fearing unsubscribe doom, yet acknowledge they love my daily emails.
No need to fear my dears.
I learned this early on from my email mentor Ben Settle (the rockstar of all things email marketing)…. you will become closer to your list, more endeared, more worthy of their hard earned dollars if you nurture the crap out of your relationships.
For me, that means talking to you daily. Letting you in on my secret marketing tips and why I do what I do.
I want you to succeed.
I want to bring levity into your life.
Like I did for subscriber Leah, who sent me email love just this week:
“I just had to thank you for this email…LMAO”
The moral to the story is this, my friend:
Never ever worry about unsubscribes. Never listen to those who tell you “no one wants to hear from you every day.”
Your tribe, your ideal clients, your unique audience wants to hear from you, learn from you and, yes, they even want to buy from you.
Go forth and nurture your tribe,
I always love to hear from you…let me know what you are enjoying and what you need help with. Thank you for being a part of my tribe.
NOTHING makes me happier than getting loves from my list. Even Sacks O’Cash coming in from programs and clients make me feel as warm and fuzzy as those who are inspired by my words.
Not that I don’t love sales…like, that’s my bread and butter baby…
But getting an email like this from Houry, a subscriber in Dubai, gives me all the feelz…
“You’ve asked me to write a recommendation right after my complementary session with you, although you gave me some wonderful tips I still thought it was too soon to ask..
Then you started sending this amazing newsletters, I’d rather call them little “informative” and super “inspiring” stories, that you actually pushed my button to start thinking in a creative way of marketing my business, instead of just sticking to my old boring routine. I’ve unsubscribed from almost 90% of the marketing emails that I receive daily, to keep room for the ones I truly appreciate, yours is my top priority, I just can’t wait to read what you’re going to write next.
Today I want to thank you for being such an inspiring and passionate person. Please keep up the great work!”
What I love most is this: Houry takes these little tips I send and she becomes inspired…and thinks differently about her marketing.
THIS is what I am to do…help business owners, freelancers, marketers, and writers think differently about how they sell products so they can stop fiddling around with the small dollars and start making an IMPACT.
Only a few more days till I (finally, I know) spill the deets on CCC (Copywriting Confidential Collective). Will you be one of the 10 that join???
Better get on the list…first invite goes to those who have hit the link.
