This technophobe turn Entrepreneur using technology tells us how to get your head around new software and what it did for her business.
Tina Sibley is the Webinar Diva. She helps people in business attract more clients and make more sales via internet marketing.
“Twenty years from now, you’ll be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the things you did do. So sail away from the safe harbour, catch the trade winds in your sails, explore, dream, discover.” To me, that’s the best quote because you can’t be successful unless you come out of that comfort zone.
In the beginning
My first webinar was a disaster because I was still learning – I was coming out of that comfrt zone and working with new technology.
When I first integrated Infusionsoft with my webinar platform I didn’t do it correctly. I thought all these people who had registered for my webinar had had reminder emails with details sent to them and they hadn’t so no-one turned up! It was my own fault I had forgotten to do something simple. My advice would be get the right help, don’t try to do it all yourself.
Take Infusionsoft one step at a time. Build on it, don’t rush to try and do everything all at once. When I took a step back, and with your help, started doing it step by step it all made sense.
Turning my passion of speaking and presenting into helping others to make money from their business. That, to me, is brilliant. When I had my first five figure month when I thought if I can do this from a webinar – I can teach other to do this as well.
The webinar side of my business is really taking off. What’s exciting is as things get busier, I can make so much more automated through Infusionsoft. Let’s face it, the dream is to earn the money while you’re on the beach isn’t it?
Biggest thing you’ve overcome
Most definitely systems. Not having systems held me back massively. I used to work hard but not smart. I didn’t use software available to me correctly and I could have done so much more automated instead of manually. I had to learn to embrace technology. Once you’ve got your head around Infusionsoft it’s very user friendly and intuitive.
Just get the message out and be authentic.
My mechanism to let off steam – dancing. You need something to take your mind off work.
