Do you sell products? Steal this strategy from Susan Bradley, ecommerce marketing expert.
In this episode, we talk all about what goes into building a successful ecommerce strategy.
We talk about product validation (which goes beyond asking your mom), finding your audience, how to talk to your customers in an authentic way, how to build excitement around your product, and what your metrics and conversion rates should really look like.
We also talk about imposter syndrome, how building a company is hard work, and how the answer is always consistency.
If you sell products or are thinking of starting (and you know I think this is a pillar of every successful online business today), don't miss this episode.
Stop Giving Your Content Away for Free! Come to My Live Training!

Hello, friends. Welcome back to the Blogger Genius Podcast. I am your host, Jillian Leslie. And I'm so happy you are here. I don't know if you can tell, but I have a smile on my face.
And it's because David, my husband and partner and I have been so busy rolling out our new product called MiloTree Easy Payments. What I wanted to share was my why, why did we create this.
And it's really because of you, because of my audience because of the creators that I interact with on a daily basis. So, I'm always so blown away by what people build and create and the content that they share.
And there are two pain points that I continually hear creators struggle with, and one is how to monetize. They're giving so much away for free. And they're feeding the algorithms, but they don't have as much to show for it as they would like.
And the second is that they have to deal with all these platforms. And that technology is tricky and difficult and frustrating. So, David and I said could we find a way to help creators monetize their audiences and what they know, by creating memberships.
Teaching workshops, selling their services. And make it so easy for them to get paid to sell their offerings to manage their back-end businesses and make the technology lean and simple.
On November 17th, Alisa Meredith and I are hosting a training for $10 to teach people how to set up paid workshops in under 60 minutes. And in order to set up a paid workshop, let's assume it's going to be an hour long teaching session.
The only technology you need is Zoom, an email service provider like Mailchimp, or ConvertKit, or MailerLite and three, MiloTree Easy Payments. I would love it if you came to this workshop. In order to sign up, all you do is you go to workshop.milotreecart.com.
Take a look at our sales page. This took me about 10 minutes to set up. And with your easy payments account, you will get one just like this and we'll host it for you. Just briefly how can a workshop move the needle for your business?
One, you are monetizing your audience monetizing what you know instead of putting out so much free content.
Two, you get to show up live for your community and hear what they're struggling with. So, you know what direction to move your business.
Three, because the platform is so easy to use, you can experiment with memberships or coaching. And the best part again with you in mind is there's no monthly fee to use MiloTree Easy Payments.
We charge a small transaction fee so we don't make money until you make money. This way we are 100% aligned.
If you are looking for ways to grow your community whether that be email whether that be social media, right now head to Milotree.com install the MiloTree app on your blog and it will do the work for you. Let it do the heavy lifting for you.
Let it pop up in front of your visitors and ask them to follow you on Instagram Pinterest, YouTube, Facebook, join your list, check out the exit intent but really get your community growing. And we’d love to help you with MiloTree. And I will see you here again next week.
