What Is VALUE In Content Creation?

Digital Marketing Tips - 6 Examples Of Value Driven Content For Digital Marketing

If you’ve been in the marketing space for a week, you’ve most likely already heard the standard advice – your content needs value.

Well that’s all fine and good…

But what the heck is VALUE?

I get it! New digital marketers get overwhelmed with frustration at the mere mention of this term.

Every time you hear it, it feels like some secret code that you’re suppose to know what it means, but you really don’t, and can’t seem to find anyone willing to actually break it down. 

Let’s fix this – TODAY. 

As you start creating content – whether it’s through video, emails, lead magnets, blogs, podcasts… 

One of the key challenges you’ll face is creating content that not only stops the scroll but also keeps your audience engaged. 

The secret sauce? Value.

But what exactly is “value” in content, and how can you consistently provide it to your audience? 

Let’s break it down and explore different types of value that work in any niche, complete with examples to get you started!

1. Educational Value

People love to learn new things, especially if it helps them solve a problem or improve their skills. It also doesn’t need to be presented like SCHOOL/PROFESSOR BORING. Allow your personality to shine through! After you create it, ask yourself – Would someone SAVE THIS post? 

Example: If you’re in the fitness niche, create a video or blog post on “5 Quick Home Workouts to Stay Fit Without Equipment.” Use step-by-step instructions and visual demonstrations to educate your audience.

2. Inspirational Value

Everyone needs a little inspiration now and then. Share stories or content that motivate your audience to take action or feel uplifted. We love to feel good, and we LOVE it when others help us feel good. Any post that makes us smile, feel motivated, excited, driven, or a kick in the pants we might need. 

Example: In the Entrepreneur niche, share a multi part series of morning motivation, mantras, or tips to stay driven. 

3. Entertainment Value

Sometimes, people just want to be entertained. Light-hearted, funny, or emotionally engaging content can be incredibly valuable.

Example: If you’re in the cooking niche, create a fun and engaging video of a cooking challenge, like “Can I Make a Gourmet Meal with Only 5 Ingredients?” This not only entertains but also showcases your creativity and skill. This is also where you can show a dinner fail, and that your human and relatable to your audience. 

4. Practical Value

Provide your audience with practical tips, tools, and resources they can use immediately. This type of value is highly appreciated because it’s actionable.

Example: In the digital marketing niche, write a post on “10 Free Tools Every New Digital Marketer Should Use.” Provide links and brief descriptions of each tool, highlighting how they can make marketing tasks easier.

5. Social Value

Content that sparks conversation or encourages community involvement can create a strong connection with your audience.

Example: In the travel niche, post a question like “What’s Your Most Memorable Travel Experience?” Encourage your followers to share their stories and pictures, fostering a sense of community.

6. Aesthetic Value

Beautiful, well-designed visuals can captivate your audience. This is especially powerful on platforms like Instagram and Pinterest.

Example: If you’re in the fashion niche, create visually stunning look books or outfit inspiration posts. Use high-quality photos and engaging designs to showcase the latest trends.

Remember, the key to creating valuable content is to always keep your audience’s needs and interests as the ultimate focus. 

Lastly…TEST, TEST, TEST! 

Test different types of content, see what resonates, and refine your strategy accordingly.

Mix it up, have fun and keep going!

The Weekly Legend – Social Media Omnipresence

The Weekly Legend

Your source to stay connected, educated, and inspired.

May 12th – 18th, 2024

Do THIS immediately with your social media…

If you’ve only been on 1 social platform, it's time to start expanding. 

YES…if you're only on Instagram or TikTok, I'm especially talking to you. 

Hear me out…

Relying on a single platform for your online presence is becoming increasingly risky.

Let me break it down for you with what’s going on right now…

TIKTOK – There’s talk that TikTok might be banned soon. Nothing’s set in stone, but if TikTok is your main hangout, it’s smart to start building your crowd on other spots too. I don't want you left high and dry and starting over elsewhere and causing a halt to your business. 

INSTAGRAM – Instagram is rolling out some big changes, including paid tiered plans that promise more visibility and extra perks like links in Reels. The plans are ranging in price from $15 per month to $350 per month. But here’s the kicker—lots of creators feel like they’re being pushed to pay up to get the reach they used to get for free. There's talk that Instagram is already suppressing views and reach to try and push businesses into their paid tiers. This could mean less cool content and more ad-like content clogging up our feeds. As IG rolls this out it could very well mess up reach and user activity for everyone. As marketer’s we gotta be aware of this and ready for it. (And no I’m not suggesting you grab one of the paid tiered plans once your account is offered it.) No matter what, this means that reach and views are going to be all over the place and we need to ensure our businesses are not solely on Instagram and in the hands of the IG gods. 

With 2 significant platforms going through 2 pretty big events, if you haven’t launched in other social spaces, the time to do so is NOW.

Check out other platforms like YouTube, Pinterest, or newer ones that might fit what you're about. 

Heck, be ready for a whole new platform to emerge…ya never know! 

Putting this into action doesn't need to be difficult. 

Take your previous content and recycle it onto the new platform as you build it out. I suggest making small tweaks, so it’s not identical, but overall you don’t have to start from scratch.

And most importantly…DRIVE TRAFFIC TO YOUR FUNNEL. 

Many, especially those that have put all their eggs into the Instagram basket, are also NOT building a list. (It truly hurts my entrepreneurial heart when I see this) 

A social media account, ANY social media can be pulled from us at anytime. 

We don’t own it, we’re borrowing it. 

But we DO OWN OUR EMAIL LISTS. 

Emails are fantastic ways to keep in touch without worrying about algorithm changes.

And your business keeps going regardless of what sort of issue, tantrum, or test a particular social media platform is going through.

and that’s the whole point… 

Longevity. 

I want the business you’re building to be around for years to come, and that means omni-presence and list building are key. 

This week, look at where else you can begin to post content and create a following…

and take action. 

It doesn’t have to be perfect, but it's time to get it done. 

Branching out means you won’t have to sweat it when one platform changes the rules. 

Plus, ya never know…it may be exactly what your business needed to find more awesome people that match your ideal audience.

Lastly…use this as a way to further step into your own business identity.

Yes it’s scary to think about expanding…

The comparison-itis, the worry of “I’m not ready” comes into play. 

WATCH THIS from Brooke Burrough

She sat down with Dave on Friday and in this one short clip she hit on all the things.

She touched on fear, worthiness, and worrying about what everyone else is doing and instead do what feels good for you and your business. 

Ya gotta check it out! 

I hope this clip gets you motivated to take action and to step into your own online identity and direction, and of course I hope you expand beyond just a single presence on one social media platform.

You Got Questions, We Got Answers About The 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge

Your Questions Answered

The 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge - Your Questions Answered & Find Out What's Going On With Legendary Marketer

Dave really out did himself with this one…and below I answer your burning questions about the NEW Learn Launch Lead 5-Day Challenge from Legendary Marketer. Here you'll learn exactly what's going on with Legendary Marketer and why you should consider checking out this new challenge. 

You can’t be proud of your business if you don’t have full understanding of how MARKETING, ENTREPRENEURSHIP, AND DIGITAL SKILLS WORK. 

This is what we do here.

This is what we’ve done since 2017. 

And we just changed the whole dang education industry with the amount of education we provide in the 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge…because we’re practically giving it away for only $5. 

There’s ZERO FLUFF in this challenge.

It’s a big ol’ plate of meat and potatoes. 

Remember – EVERY SINGLE BUSINESS needs marketing. 

They need an online presence. 

We teach you the skills, we teach you how to build and monetize an online presence of your own in any niche, for any product. 

You'll be empowered. You'll build confidence. You CAN DO THIS. 

So lets dive into the questions regarding our new 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge…

 

What are the differences between the previous 15-Day Challenge and the NEW 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge?

OH man…let me list a FEW of the differences…

  1. We go over how to pick a niche in an area you love right on Day 1
  2. We include an entire day on Faceless content so you can get online without as much worry
  3. We include an entire day on content creation, planning, along with homework to take action! 
  4. We know how important mindset is. Many of us need more support with getting out of our own way, so we weaved MINDSET throughout each day of the challenge. 

AND THAT’S JUST THE START…

Dave poured his decades of experience along with the feedback from YOU and created a completely new challenge to HELP you LEARN, GET LAUNCHED, and step into LEADING. 

If I have the previous 15-Day Challenge, can I buy the new Learn Launch Lead challenge?

YES, this is a completely separate product and experience.

If you own the 15 day challenge, you still have access to it. However, our new challenge, for $5, is a remastered, beefed up challenge to help our students get exactly what they need to get launched. As you can see from the first question above it's JAM PACKED with a focus on CONTENT CREATION! You can't sell a darn thing online without traffic – which means you need to know how to create content. This challenge goes into Faceless Marketing as well! 

Does the new Learn Launch Lead Challenge cover digital products?

Like I said…You can’t sell a darn thing – even a digital product until you know how to market it. 

Shoot…if you are still stuck, scrolling and consuming more than creating, if you're barely taking action, and just hoping that saying you have a digital product will get you sales…you need a refocus. 

Our Learn Launch Lead Challenge gives you the opportunity to GET FOCUSED on what MATTERS at the start of a business. We don't want you to launch with a small vision. We want you to launch your business with a long term, long lasting business you can be proud of to share with friends and family. Learn the basics and you can have a variety of streams of income as you scale – including digital products.

Can I meet with an advisor during the Learn Launch Lead Challenge?

YES – on your first login you will pick your path – Advisor led or Self led. We do have data that the VAST majority that actually COMPLETE our education, did meet with an advisor. If you would like that added support and sounding board, choose Advisor led. It’s 100% up to you and available in the new challenge. 

Does it come with MRR?

Ya know what TRUE MRR is – MONTHLY RECURRING REVENUE 

And that’s the MRR we consider a long term viable, stream of income that you should add to your business. If you’re talking about anything that forces you to buy something in order to resell it, pyramid feel to it – you won’t find that here.

As you SCALE your business adding streams of income such as Monthly Recurring Revenue is FANTASTIC. 

BUT, you can’t get to that point unless you have the roots, the skills, and the confidence. You gotta get launched and grow a following first. That's what we do here. Our Learn Launch Lead Challenge teaches you what you need to GET STARTED.

Will you still sell the 15 Day Challenge? 

We believe in our new challenge so much, we are no longer offering the 15 Day challenge to new students. 

I'm seeing products online that don't offer a refund – will Legendary still offer refunds?

YOU BET! We have and always believe in creating a space that can be trusted and value our students FIRST. The 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge comes with a 30-Day money back refund period. I mean, it's wild to think of purchasing anything without a refund period attached. 

How do I get my hands on the 5-Day Learn Launch Lead Challenge?

Login to your back office, Hover over CHALLENGE at the top and select 5-Day Challenge and buy it right there for INSTANT ACCESS. Remember it's only 5 bucks.

Your Weekly Legend for April 21st-27th

Yep, I’m going to ask you to doubt something…

But first, I have a thank you to give. 

On Friday, our guest was a 58 yr old piano sales manager named Joe who has an absolute huge heart of gold.

He was kind, authentic, raw, real, and everything in between. 

I seriously can’t say enough good things about him.

He shared how he missed many moments of his kids growing up but wasn’t going to miss his grandchildren. 

He wants to start planning his week around his kids activities instead of around his J.O.B. 

He drove home that all of us can make a change at any point, at any age and take daily action to be more available.

He then shared something I had never heard before. 

Ya see, although I love what I do here at Legendary, I have a much bigger role that I love…

I’m the momma to 3 pretty awesome teenagers. 

And they were all going through a moment of doubting their abilities…

Doubting if they could push through feeling tired.

Doubling if they could overcome some fear that had creeped in before a meet they had.

Doubting if they can repeat the success they once experienced. 

Doubting if they can reach the next level

And I remembered what Joe shared and I shared it with them. 

“Doubt your doubts instead of doubting your abilities.” 

DOUBT YOUR DOUBTS

Dang. 

Think about it. 

Those 3 words are wildly powerful.

Every day we have self-talk that's sole purpose is to doubt our abilities…

It keeps us from going on camera

It keeps us from showing up authentically

It keeps us from taking real action to create change in our life

It keeps us from writing those emails 

Or taking that funnel live

What if we flipped the script and started doubting our doubts instead…

If there is one interview you watch…please take some time and get to know Joe. 

An everyday, (awesome) dad who’s launched online, learning new skills, and is choosing to doubt his doubts and keep going. 

And Joe…thank you for helping me provide some amazing advice to my kiddos. 

Wake Up Legendary is so much more than seeing how someone “made money.” 

It’s about learning how to be…

A better business owner

A better marketer

A better content creator

A better connector

A better leader

Even…

A better partner

A better friend

A better parent

Check out Joe’s interview HERE 

I know you will love him AND I know you will take real action in your education and business afterwards too.

Setting The Record Straight: Addressing False Claims About Legendary Marketer

Setting the Record Straight - Addressing False Claims About Legendary Marketer

Recently, we were the subject of a negative marketing story that included misleading claims made by 3 individuals and a self-proclaimed “expert”. 

We want to take this opportunity to clarify the misconceptions and deceptive claims of this story and reaffirm our commitment to the tagline that’s been written on the front of LegendaryMarketer.com since the beginning of our company's existence: Online Marketing Delivered Simply and With Integrity. 

Our goal with every course and piece of education we release to our customers is to introduce and teach digital marketing skills to everyday people looking to build an online business or upgrade their current business with digital marketing strategies.  

As we continue to revisit our commitment to ethical positive marketing, and being the example for our students, Dave has this message above.

Now speaking directly to our students, it’s our ultimate goal for you to create an online community you love, in a niche you’re excited about, and can amplify positivity in the online space. You attract what you put out, and negative slanderous marketing efforts will bring a community with the same focus. 

This is one of the few things shared in the article that we agree on – everyone should do their research before purchasing any product or education.

We recommend you take a strong look at anyone resorting to negative and attacking marketing tactics and if you want to be associated with those types of tactics online. 

We want to assure our community and potential students that we remain committed to providing high-quality education and resources in digital marketing. 

We have thoroughly researched these claims and have proof to refute them. We encourage anyone interested in our program to reach out, ask questions, and make informed decisions about their education and business pursuits. 

As always…Stay Legendary.

Your Weekly Legend for March 17th-23rd

I got a bone to pick with you…

Regularly, we’re asked for Wake Up Legendary episodes that have someone in a unique niche or someone that is newer or it took more time for their business to take off. 

And when those requests come in I scratch my head and think to myself – where did I screw up? 

Because…first of all everyday there is someone new that shares they’re in month 9, month 14, month, and how they started from zero followers, and didn’t have overnight success. 

That is the norm and we showcase it almost daily. 

Then we’ve had guests in parenting, dating, pet niche, mindset and manifesting, those promoting their own digital products, those doing their own events, and most recently 2 really cool and different niches…AVIATION and COOKING. 

But here’s where my blood boils…

They were 2 of the lowest watched episodes.  

AHHHHHHHH

YET TWO OF THE MOST MARKETING STRATEGY PACKED EPISODES…EVER.

In our Blueprints group, we have tons of students in the women’s health niche, travel, fitness, and pets to name some of the bigger ones. (I know because I took a poll and see the questions asked in the group and on our daily live support calls) 

So my next assumption is, many of you think you can only get value from an interview that is talking about the specific niche you want to go into. 

And that’s where you’re missing the mark. 

I don't want you to box yourself in…

I don’t want you to just rinse and repeat what someone else is doing. (Trust me, there’s a lot of of that out there right now with other products) 

It looks easy to just buy something and turn around and sell it. 

And you can’t do that here so suddenly what you’re learning here feels “hard.” 

The truth is nothing is easy. 

Learning digital marketing skills, really learning them is knowing how to apply them to ANY niche, to ANY audience, for ANY product. 

And we absolutely believe YOU can learn them. 

When you listen to others' stories, their journey, their struggles and their wins, you can see how they connected the dots of marketing strategy to their niche and audience of choice. 

We are here to teach you the skills. 

We are here to teach you the strategies.

We are here to empower you with knowledge. 

We are here to cheer you on, as you find your passion and take the marketing skills you learn and apply them in the real world. 

(which you already know) 

We want you to think…BIGGER for yourself.

But one of the best ways to bring it all together and see it applied…

Watch Wake Up Legendary for FREE daily training and real world examples.

Listen to what the guest shares, take notes, and apply their advice to your own niche and what you're learning. 

Use Wake Up Legendary as a guide to spark creativity, spark your own ideas for your own business, and then take action. 

Basically…don’t watch an episode or follow someone because of the NICHE they're in. 

Look deeper beyond the surface details. 

You'll get way more value out of each interview with that change in mindset. 

I also want to make sure I get you what you've asked for…since I clearly missed the mark as well. 

So here it is…

Wanna watch two awesome episodes that are jam packed with advice for those starting out? (AND happen to be in two unique niches) 

Here ya go:

AVIATION NICHE (This guest was in a different niche for 10 months until finally making the switch to aviation, where is love and excitement lives) 

COOKING NICHE (No she’s not a professionally trained cook, but she shares her LOVE of cooking and creating with her audience, and has her own book!) 

I don’t share the above because of the niche, but because they're both JAMMED full of advice, struggles, wins, and share what it looks like when you go all in to building your own business…virtually. 

Enjoy!

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn

Your Weekly Legend for March 10th-16th

Today I was bitten.

Yep, I got a little story for ya…

Picture this – I'm sitting down, ready to write today's email for all of you.

I'm in the zone, ideas are flowing, but nothing is set yet.

I should also mention, I have a 5 month old lab puppy (who's at the age where training is key), along with a couple older dogs. 

Currently we are focused on my puppy not jumping. Our trainer told us to shake a bottle of rocks because it produces a loud noise he hates and knows he’s doing something wrong. 

My daughter walked in and the puppy, who was chillin, pops up and starts jumping on her. 

I shake the bottle.

And like a frickin movie, my older bulldog out of nowhere jumps in the air from the side of me….and BAM! 

Her mouth is around my arm and for the first time ever…I’ve been bitten by a dog. 

Luckily no blood was drawn, just some bruises. 

But suddenly, I'm thrown for a loop. 

I'm nursing a sore arm, my focus is shot, and writer's block is hitting me like a ton of bricks. 

Distractions are everywhere, and I'm seriously considering just throwing in the towel for the day. 

I mean, I've got a pretty solid excuse, right?

But then it hit me. 

This is exactly the kind of situation that tests our commitment. 

It's easy to show up and do the work when everything's going smoothly. 

But what about when things get tough? 

The more we find excuses to not show up, the more our business (and our goals) will struggle.

We can’t equal easy to right. 

Showing up to our business…every single day…

Takes commitment. 

So, I powered through. 

I figured out a way to get it done, even with a bruised arm and ego. 

And you know what? 

It felt pretty darn good.

This little incident reminded me that perseverance is key. 

In digital marketing, and in life, there will always be unexpected “bulldog bites” that try to throw you off course. 

But it's how you respond to those challenges that really counts.

There will always be things thrown at us…

Are you going to focus on excuses? 

Are you going to reason why you're giving up or why you won’t make changes to your business when you know it’s the right thing to do? 

Are you choosing the lazy approach?

Or are you going to figure out how to show up, adjust, grow, and continue to push forward? 

So, here's to showing up, even when it's easier not to. 

Here’s to doing what’s right for a long lasting business – even it forces you out of your comfort zone. 

And hey, if a spicy bulldog can't stop me, what's your excuse?

Keep pushing forward!

As always…

Stay Legendary,

JoAnn

February 18th – 24th, 2024

Your Weekly Legend for February 18th-24th

There’s one recurring theme that is weaving through Wake Up Legendary interviews, through our live support calls, hot seats, through Facebook posts in the group.

This one topic, all new business owners and marketers talk about when first starting out…

Value in content.

Ya know you need value in your content.

But what is this elusive “value” that you keep hearing about? 

And how do you know if you content includes this value everyone is talking about? 

Well, this one question will help you instantly gauge if your content includes value. (and no, directing them to your link in every piece of content is not THE VALUE, that’s the call to action and your CTA should be changed up in each piece of content.) 

Ready for the question…here ya go! 

Before you hit post, watch reel, watch your video, read your post and then ask yourself this question…

Will my ideal audience want to share and/or save this piece of content after they watch it? 

If the answer is no…don’t post it.

Instead, go back, tweak it so it’s something your IDEAL audience will want to share/save. 

They’ll do this because now your content gives them something they need, they want, they desire, that makes them laugh, that helps them, or is relatable. It's got guts, it's got some substance to it.

It can be as simple, something that is funny and relatable to your ideal audience that they have to share it with their BFF. 

It can be tips, tricks, or what has helped you, that your IDEAL audience will relate to as well. 

Yes, there's so much more to creating content and having a strategy in place but asking this one question is an excellent last checkbox and gauge if that piece of content will have a chance of getting more views. 

Asking yourself this question can be a game-changer for creating content that really clicks with your audience.

Heck it will help the algorithm FIND your ideal audience too. 

It's perfect for shaking off those low-views or for getting your new account off ground. 

Plus, it'll help you ditch that salesy vibe and start building a brand that is filled with connection, positivity, and followers that are pumped to be there. 

Do yourself a favor this weekend and go back through your content, and ask yourself – would my ideal audience share it or save it to refer back to? If someone shared it with you, would you enjoy it and see value in it or would you be scratching your head asking why in the world did my friend Susie just share this with me? 

If you find any videos that don’t really hit the mark…DON’T DELETE THEM. 

Instead, remake them with added value! 

And build from there. 

Haven't started posting yet? No problem! As you research and plan what to post, start asking yourself – what's the value in the content I enjoy consuming? Why do I want to send a particular video to a colleague or friend? 

That's where you uncover the value

Get out those marketing shades and put them on. 

Make note of what you uncover, and start looking at content as a marketer instead of as a consumer.  

And as a side note, if you read the above and scratching your head, asking yourself – but who is my ideal audience? Please go revisit Day 5 of the challenge or the Fishing formula in the blueprints and get your Business plan dialed in. Your ideal audience is defined right there.

And one last tip…Back in November I shared one of the best growth call to actions to use, that is also the most under-utilized is – “save this for later/share this with a friend.” So your bonus tip…be sure you're adding in a variation of this CTA into your content strategy as well! 

Happy Creating! 

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn

The course doesn't work…

Yep, you read that right. 

The course doesn't work…

Our guest on Thursday's episode of Wake Up Legendary shared this with Dave.

Let me add the rest of the quote for you…

“The course doesn’t work. It doesn’t have arms and legs. It only works if you do.” -Mitra

Read that again.

And she’s absolutely right. 

In fact… NO COURSE works all on its own. 

No course will magically build your funnel, create your daily content, write your emails, blogs, build relationships…. 

No course will suddenly create and implement what's in it while you sleep. 

The act of buying a relationship course, won't actually fix your marriage…you have to implement the techniques taught…and work at it. 

A parenting course won't miraculously help your toddler have less tantrums because you purchased the online digital product and joined the private Facebook group of other toddler moms. 

You have to do the work to make it work. 

Yet so many will grab an online course and expect the world of instant success without really doing much of anything….

I see some even hop around, buying course after course, joining a ton of different Facebook groups, yet not once actually go through the course they purchased. 

Their inbox is slammed with freebies, purchased courses of all price points and promised guarantees from Guru Greg to Guru Gail. 

But they never find it…

Until they decide to do the work themselves. 

Until they sit down, go through the lessons, implement, dedicate, and go all in. 

This interview was so powerful.

Turning Your Self Doubt Into A Success Story

On Monday December 4th Dave Sharpe sat down with Ginger Halbert to talk about her online business and how she is turning years of self doubt into achievement. Ginger is from Melbourne Australia and is a primary school teacher. After maternity leave she had to go back to work and knew she would much rather be at home with her newborn daughter. After putting her 8 month old daughter into daycare she knew that a change needed to be made in her life so that she could stay home with her and be a present Mom for her daughter. 

 

She came across Legendary and did the 15 Day Business Builder Challenge after starting a blog online. Once she started her affiliate marketing journey she felt like she had found what she was looking for.  

 

Identifying Limiting Beliefs In Your Journey

 

Growing up Ginger felt like she had to live the cookie cutter life of going to college and getting a 9-5 job after. She was always told that was the only way to live. Affiliate marketing was the hidden gem that had always been there but she hadn’t known about.

 

Growing up she always gave up on things quickly and never pushed through because of self doubt. Since starting her affiliate marketing journey she has taught herself to push through things even when they are hard or if she thinks she can’t do something.

Identifying what your limiting beliefs are. This may be something like how Ginger felt the only way to go through life was college onto a 9-5. What is holding you back from starting your online business and taking the plunge into digital marketing? Identifying what is holding you back and not allowing it to is where your digital marketing journey can truly begin to blossom.

 

For Ginger this looked like her being fearful to show her face online. Who would see her content? What if students and their parents saw it? Once she identified that limiting belief and chose to make her content anyway, she was able to move past it and see that it didn’t matter who saw her content, because the right people would find it.

 

Finding The Right Mindset For Your Business and Embracing Change

 

A big part of your marketing journey is finding the right mindset. Finding the right mindset to have in your business is shifting your mindset to knowing that no matter what, giving up on your business cannot be an option. You have to be willing to remove quitting from your list of options. 

 

Another part of this is embracing change both in your business and in the online space. The internet is ever changing and growing. Adapting to the possibility of aspects in your business changing often is all part of maintaining and building your business. Social media changes and things become popular and get old quickly. Always be ready and willing to embrace the changes that may come your way and be willing to change the way you make content. 

 

If something isn’t working for you, don’t give up. Trying new things is all part of the process. If you aren’t receiving engagement, try something new. This may be a new prop in your videos, a new angle or type of content, or something else. Trying new things in your content and embracing change allows for more people to find your content and connect with it. 

 

Navigating Online Negativity

 

Something that can really slow people down and prohibit their growth in the online space is negativity from viewers on social media. Everyone receives negativity online when they put themselves out there. Something that really helped Ginger overcome the negativity of others online was working on her self growth. By empowering herself she was able to stop caring about what others were saying about her online. 

 

Another way to deter hate from your page is by delivering consistent value to your audience and remaining authentic. When you remain authentic to yourself you can cultivate a positive online presence of people who really connect to your story and want the value that you are delivering. Engaging with your audience and being helpful and friendly can also help create a community that supports your business and counters negativity. 

 

Negative comments and criticism are not a reflection of your abilities and worth. Finding the right mindset and identifying your limiting beliefs will help your business to grow and thrive. Focusing on the positives in digital marketing and releasing the negatives or anxieties that come with starting and maintaining a new business will help you to not only develop yourself mentally, but allow your business to develop and grow as well. 

 

Would you like to find a profitable business you can do from home so you can bring in much more substantial income? If so, I recommend you watch this free video which will walk you through our #1 recommended way to learn how to earn money online from home.

Your Weekly Legend for February 4th-10th

I was sitting in line at an amusement park…CRYING.

I wasn’t just giving a little whimper, I was in a full on ugly girl, hysterical cry.

Why?

Because I was in line for a roller coaster that had a loop de loop…I was about to go upside down for the first time.

And I was absolutely terrified.

My older brother was encouraging me…

You can do this.

You’ll love it

You gotta try it once

I got you

I’ll be with you

I’ll hold your hand

I was not having it.

I was the girl in line balling and yelling no.

I was the little 4th grader everyone was looking at, commenting, snickering, and advising my brother to take me out of line.

He wasn’t getting any support.

It felt like everyone around me wanted me to quit, even I wanted to in that moment. 

But he wasn’t going to listen to the unsolicited opinions either.

He finally said to me…

Do what you want. I’m not taking you out of line.

And with these next words he shared, my “why” to stay and get on that roller coaster became bigger than my fear…

If you don’t want to go, and be a big baby, then walk through the coaster to the exit, I’m still going on the ride.

Just remember, you’ll be stuck sitting with mom for the rest of the day scared, or you can go on rides with me.

You decide.

Yes, I was young.

Yes, my brother gave me some tough love. (as any older HS aged boy would)

But man I didn’t want to miss out and I definitely didn't want to be called a big baby and my brother never want to do something fun with me again.

Plus, he wasn't going to leave with me. 

He was going to do what he wanted to do with or without me.

I didn’t have confidence in myself…

But he had it for me and I needed to borrow that to take that first step and get on the roller coaster.

Ya see…

We’re faced with moments of fear all the time.

Even when we're young.

I bet you can list a few times in your life, where you did something new and overcame fear. 

In all of these moments, we aren’t an expert, we don’t truly know what’s going to happen, but we know we won’t know until we do it.

The same goes for launching your own business.

Of course you aren’t an expert.

Of course you’re still learning.

But ya know what…

We all know you can get launched and keep going, once you decide to.

We also have people around us, in online communities, cheering us on. 

We gotta borrow that confidence as we grow our own.

Our confidence will grow as we implement.

Our confidence will become stronger as we continue to take action.

I was a hysterical, crying, fearful girl in line for that roller coaster.

I walked off though feeling like a freakin rockstar and asked to go again…

I would have never grown that confidence in myself if I didn’t at least try it.

Monday’s episode of Wake Up Legendary was a MASTERCLASS on building confidence.

Caroline Hannay was our guest and Dave and Caroline dive into it all.

She had no followers, wasn't sure about herself, and didn't have everything all figured out.

But one day, she asked herself, “Why not me?”

And that's when her story took a turn.

At first, it was tough.

No one was watching her content.

Most people would think, “Maybe I should just quit.”

But not Caroline!

She kept going, pushing through all the doubts and the silence.

If you're feeling a bit scared, or if everything feels too much, or if you feel like you're all alone in this journey of being an entrepreneur, Caroline's story is for you.

In her interview, she spills how she kicked those fears away, how she found her niche, (yes, she first started planning on being an affiliate for a flame thrower).

But most importantly, she shared how through consistent action, her confidence grew.

It is absolutely a MUST WATCH episode. 

TAP HERE TO WATCH IT NOW

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn

Your Weekly Legend for January 28th - Feb 3rd

I got 2 things for you today…

I had a recent family experience about online marketing, but it revealed a bigger truth…

There are some pretty darn cool niches out there, that people are building businesses around. 

You can truly build a business around what you love.

As an entrepreneur, there will always be family that just wants to sit in the negative pool of negative comments and thoughts.

For whatever reason family members feel they should absolutely share all their funky monkey and often times, rude opinions with you.

Well, it’s been awhile since this has happened to me.

Heck I’ve been doing digital marketing for over a decade, you’d think it wouldn’t be a topic.

But here we are, sitting at a local sports bar and what I do as a profession becomes the topic.

Ya see, my brother had a friend in town who I’d never met.

We met up for dinner and the friend asked me, now what do you do JoAnn?

As I share a brief description of what I do, one of my family member’s chimes in with THIS comment…

“Well, I would NEVER buy anything online. It’s all scammers, I just don’t get how you get around that. No one does legitimate business online.”

FFS

Did I really just hear that?

Talk about a palm to the face moment. 

I could go down the road of piss and attack and defend what I do, but I chose a different approach…

I “changed the subject” as I had a plan…

How’s quilting going? I asked.

As she spoke, she shared she was heading to Quilt Camp.

Ahhh, I think to myself, even more perfect!

I asked how she found it?

“From a Facebook group of quilters that I’m a member of,” she added.

Oh…how did you find that group to join?

She then shared – “From a lady that has a Facebook page where she teaches how to use a long arm and shares different quilts and patterns each week.”

She then added that this lady shared her quilt camp in her email newsletter.

I'm thinking to myself, this is going better than I even hoped for…

So I dive in…

OHHHH so you found a lady who quilts….ONLINE.

You loved her content so much you then…

followed her social media accounts

joined her EMAIL list

joined her private Facebook group

and now you’re going to a private small 3 day event (also known as a mastermind) to be in the same room with other quilters.

PLUS, she buys quilting projects off this lady’s recommendations…regularly.

Anyone else see what I see?

So of course I then explained to her how she's a consumer of affiliate offers, digital products, and a live event and purchasing quite a bit online and clearly this quilting lady she’s following and trusts is not a scammer.

This lady also has multiple digital products and online courses!

This quilting lady monetized what she loves and I'm here for it!

There was silence from my family member. 

She was shocked.

She never realized.

I went on to eat my fries as that soaked in for her.

A spark was ignited and she started asking more questions about other Facebook groups she’s in and started pulling up people she follows on Instagram.

I showed her how all of them had a link in bio, that she's clicking…and BUYING from.

Those marketers, do an excellent job of creating valuable content that their ideal audience loves, so it never felt SALESY.

Instead, they served their audience by building trust, engaging content, and community. 

Whether your passion is quilting, fitness, investing or even raising chickens…

You can absolutely monetize it.

That’s what I love about what we do here.

We get the opportunity to teach our students skills that hopefully ignite a spark to think BIGGER for themselves and grow something that could truly bring more joy.

Anything is possible when you harness the power of digital marketing skills.

When we start looking at what we consume each day, we realize just how much digital marketing is woven into everything we do.

And now…you’re learning exactly how to do that too.

It’s frickin awesome!

Heck this quilting lady took her passion, creates content, has an email opt-in, a private Facebook group, and is running live events.

She's using all of the core four business models we teach her within her quilting niche.

And I’m goin’ to bet, she LOVES showing up to her business everyday.

Which leads me to this one question…are you in a unique niche you love? Are you building an online community that is connected to your passion and now you’re monetizing it?

I would love to hear about the business your building around what you love and your unique niche. Let Me Know Here

As always…

Your Weekly Legend for January 7th-13th

Let's cut to the chase – the burning question on everyone's mind: “Is TikTok Dead?” 

I’ve heard this question a few times this week. 

But before you start mourning or celebrating (we don't judge), let's dive into this.

And it requires a bit of history…

The Internet and the need for Digital Marketing isn’t going away.

Every single business NEEDS marketing to SURVIVE.

Every single business that exists on the planet NEEDS an online presence. 

When you have digital marketing skills, you become desirable. 

As Dave says – It makes you smart enough to be dangerous. 

That’s why since 2017 we’ve been teaching the CORE 4, the true base of all digital marketing skills: 

  1. Affiliate Marketing
  2. Digital Courses & Products
  3. Coaching & Consulting
  4. Events & Masterminds 

If you have knowledge in any of the above, you’re ahead of the game. 

If you have knowledge in all 4…well…

Now you’re a digital marketer to be reckoned with. 

And that’s why folks, we have 4 detailed Blueprints for each focus. 

But, here’s the cool part. 

How we get traffic to our offers does change. (Which is why we always are updating our blueprints)

But the strategies we teach within them don’t…they can be used regardless of what crazy algorithm tantrum is going on. 

TikTok has been accused of morphing into a modern-day QVC.

With TikTok Shop all over the platform, creators are jumping in to sell whatever they can sling from TT shop and the algorithm is prioritizing those videos a bit more.

Here’s the reality: all social platforms go through an identity crisis.

All platforms go through algorithm adjustments, changes in focus.

Remember when Facebook was just a college network or a place to play farmville? 

Or when Instagram was only for ‘aesthetic’ photos?

TikTok’s shift towards more commercial content might seem like it's losing its original charm. 

But, it is far from dead. 

Every single marketer has their “favorite” platform. 

Every single marketer has a platform that doesn’t perform well for them.

It doesn’t mean that the entire platform is DEAD. 

Just this week, we had digital marketer, Kellee Roberts on Wake Up Legendary and she shared how she had really tried to give IG a try because others were having success there.

But…it was never the platform she produced huge conversions from. 

It was always Tiktok that she produced the most leads and conversions from. 

So she went back to prioritizing TT, and couldn’t be happier. 

So, is TikTok dead? 

Far from it. 

It’s just wearing a new hat, and it’s our job to ensure we are putting out quality content that builds community and connection and not showing up as a digital door to door salesman in every video. (and btw that goes for every platform)

This brings us to the golden rule of digital marketing: omni-presence.

Being active and interactive across platforms is key. 

All platforms will go through algorithm adjustments. 

I think sometimes IG tests new algorithm changes almost weekly. 

Because of this we can’t focus on that.

What we can do is make sure we’re showing up to as many platforms as we can without being overwhelmed and be present and ready for when the algorithm favors our content more. 

So don't write off TikTok just yet (unless it’s a platform you just can’t stand, because remember it’s YOUR BUSINESS and you decide where you want your business to have a digital presence). 

Keep creating, keep engaging, and most importantly, stay present across platforms. 

After all, versatility is the name of the digital marketing game.

Your Weekly Legend for December 31st-January 6th

Happy New Year! 

It’s that time of year where most of us are doing some level of reflecting on the past 12 months and what we want out of the next year. 

Are you possibly thinking about regrets? The what if’s? The could have’s? 

Well…the past is done. 

We can spend our time focused on what we have zero control over at this point, or we can dive into what we need to do in 2024 to turn our “What if’s” into ABSO-FREAKIN-LUTELY.

What if you made 2024 the year of YOU?

I saw a recent post that asked to name the most important people in your life, and if you didn’t list yourself…you should. 

What if this was the year where YOU’RE the main event

It's time to kick things up a notch and make this year all about what YOU want to do.

Go after the goals YOU want to achieve.

Step into the greatness YOU’VE been wanting. 

And hey, if someone says that's being selfish, just give them the ol' eye roll.

Because guess what? 

That eye roll, that negative comment they are throwing at you is more about THEIR limiting beliefs.

It’s more about them being the crab in the bucket, trying to keep you down in the hole with them.

Remember, when you prioritize you, when you gain new skills and an updated mindset, it’s not just a win for you. 

It’s like you’re the superhero in your own comic book, ready to help out your family. 

When you're at your best, you make everything and everyone around you better too.

Basically, making 2024 the year of YOU truly benefits your loved ones as well. 

Our final Best of 2023 Wake Up Legendary is tomorrow, January 1st with an amazing interview with Chelsea Ouimet.

She talks alot about finally prioritizing herself and only keeping people in her circle that charge her up instead of vacuuming her goals and energy away. 

It’s an excellent interview to kick off the year with. 

Then Dave is back LIVE on Tuesday with an all new guest, new motivation, and new inspiration to help YOU make 2024 your best year yet. 

Check out this week’s episodes below.

As always…

I've got something really cool to share with you as we get close to the end of 2023. 

On Friday, Dave absolutely unleashed a phenomenal and motivating talk to all those that were on Decade In A Day. 

He uncovered how confidence or lack there of is the root of what’s holding us back. 

He dove into what it means to finally not give up on yourself.

He also discussed how we need to be accountable to ourselves, how each of us are survivors, and that vulnerability is not a weakness.

Instead, vulnerability is absolutely a strength. 

Then there was a question he asked…

I had to share this clip with each of you, as many of us are setting goals for ourselves as the new year comes. 

You’ll also be reminded that when you work on these goals, you become more confident and better at what you do.

Take a listen, then as Dave shares at the end…what happens next is completely in your hands. 

Let's make 2024 a year where we step into a confident version of ourselves we once didn’t believe was possible.

Vegas Baby!

When many of us hear those two words our thoughts are instantly filled with images of…

Glittery outfits, fabulous dinners, amazing shows, and the opportunity to cash in overnight. 

Dreams of big payouts from the slots, the craps table, or blackjack are filling our thoughts and directing our decisions.

Friday night rolls around and the flights into Vegas are filled with excited, gleeful people that just know…

THIS will be the weekend that everything changes.

We fully believe the slots are going to be loose, and the money will be flyin!

Drinks are being poured on the plane.

There’s cheering, there’s excitement.

The group that snagged group A on Southwest are already celebrating like they won at the craps table.

There’s a whole lot of people believing their life is about to change.

You can feel the energy on the plane and in the airport.

Some even grabbing limos to their hotel, manifesting that millionaire lifestyle.

But wait?

I thought we were IN a recession? 

I thought so many were struggling? 

I thought inflation was making everyone seek out quick and cheap instead of something that can be trusted and long term? 

Yet those planes to Vegas are packed each and every weekend…

All for what?

A HOPE FOR A QUICK CASH-IN.

This is going to be the weekend to remember.

Finally the opportunity to get a whole lotta somethin’ for doing a whole lotta nothin’.

Then the worse part about a Vegas trip hits…

Sunday morning

With one quick scan through the security line at the Vegas airport…you know.

The crowd is feelin' rough and they're leaving empty handed.

The make believe life they created over the weekend is over. 

And the dream of becoming overnight millionaires has been shattered.

And to top it off…

they forgot to check in for their flight at the 24 hour mark so group C it is. 

Stuck in the middle seat, pondering about how they gotta go back to the job they hate the next day.

Why does this happen over and over?

It all comes back to one thing…

EGO

Ego is booking that Vegas trip, hoping to finally be the lucky, big winner so you can finally feel good and look good to others

Ego is what’s answering the random stranger in the DMs and handing over thousands for some secret hot item.

Ego is what got us jumping from course to course, offer to offer…yet we aren’t looking to actually learn.

Instead…

We’re looking for a quick payout like a Vegas slot machine. 

We’re looking for quick payouts and feed our egos.

We’re looking for someone else to make us suddenly look good.

“You won’t be rich if your ego is bigger than your bank account.”

Dave has shared this quite a bit on Wake Up Legendary over the years. 

Our ego plays a massive role in our success or lack thereof.

And ultimately, if we’re gonna gamble…

We gotta BET ON OURSELVES.

THAT'S when we’ll see the REAL payout.

In betting and gambling, there’s always a risk.

We gotta stop throwing cash at a machine designed to TAKE OUR money and start taking different risks…

Risks that improve our knowledge.

Risks that improve our growth.

Risks that grow our confidence.

Risks that can give us more control.

When we stop worrying about what everyone else might say and focus solely on our own goals, path, and actions…that’s where the real magic happens.

Bet on you.

The really cool thing, you always win in the end when you do.

What will you do today to bet on yourself? 

Your future? 

Your dreams? 

What action are you willing to take today?

Your Weekly Legend for December 3rd-10th

So, picture this: it's just after 7am on a Monday morning, and there I am, sipping my morning coffee, excited for the week ahead.

Suddenly, I'm hit with this Wake Up Legendary moment, my coffee nearly went airborne.

“DANG” I shouted, “That's my next email!”

Last Monday on Wake Up Legendary, Dave dropped a truth bomb that had me floored, it was so stinkin’ good:

“People aren't thinking to themselves, I think I’ll go on Tiktok and find myself a marriage or a guru to follow for the rest of my life. NO! They’re scrolling for a hook up!”

People aren’t on TikTok hunting for a soulmate or a life coach.

They're there for a fun fling with content!

Now, we're not in the business of swiping right on Tinder…

But we should be all about creating killer content.

When we switch gears from content consumers to creators, we often forget our roots.

Remember those days of aimlessly scrolling through reels or TikTok's FYP?

We weren’t on a quest for some earth-shattering online connection.

Nah, we were there for something more… casual.

We wanted a content ‘hook-up' – a quick fix of laughs, knowledge, entertainment, or just a momentary escape from reality.

Social media scrolling is kind of selfish when you think about it.

It's all about what the viewer wants, not about pleasing anyone else.

But once we become content creators, we often stay stuck in this ‘me-centric' universe, obsessing over what we want from our audience.

And that, my friends, is where we mess it all up.

We act like our audience owes us their likes, their clicks, their follows.

But in reality – they don't owe us squat.

We're the ones who should be dishing out the goods.

So, next time you're crafting content, ask yourself…

Are you serving up what your audience craves, or are you too wrapped up in your own wants?

We gotta stop fixating on what we can get, and start focusing on what we can give.

And maybe, just maybe, we'll find that creating for others is the best way to fulfill ourselves.

Have new years resolutions begun to creep in your thoughts and conversations? 

Are you ready to supercharge your motivation and turn your New Year's resolutions into a reality? 

Now is the perfect time to ignite the fire within you for a successful year ahead.

We all know the feeling of saying, “I'm gonna do XYZ in the new year.”

but let's be honest – 

that's just a fancy way of putting things off. 

It's like getting ready to get ready, and it's time to break free from that cycle.

I want you to transform your “gonna” into “going for it”! 

And it starts TODAY.

Not tomorrow, not next week, and definitely stop lying to yourself by saying you're gonna start something in the new year. 

Real change happens when you go for it immediately. 

Here's the one thing you need to do TODAY. 

Watch this interview from last Monday. 

Not only will it inspire you…

You'll feel more connected, you'll feel more motivated, and you'll ignite a bigger fire within to take serious action. 

When I say take action, I mean…

Finally commit to starting the 15 Day challenge

Or commit to finishing it! (You have access to all 15 days for life – commit to finishing it)

Or maybe it's to get your funnel live, or get your autoresponder set up. 

Or maybe it's to post your first video…or to commit to posting again. 

Where ever you're at in this season of growth, change, and well stepping into a pretty cool new version of yourself…

This interview will give you a huge boost.

Your Weekly Legend for November 12th-18th

What do I make content about? 

This is the question…

It’s the limiting belief some in our community have.

I see comments like: 

I don’t have any value to share in content.

I don’t know what to say that’s worth listening to.

I’m not an expert so I don’t have the right to speak on xyz topic.

Well let’s cut to the chase right now. 

You're Darn WORTHY of happiness, of connections, and going after goals. 

So let's tackle this content piece right now to help you get past this limiting belief when it comes to content creation. 

On Friday, we had an AMAZING Decade In A Day for our blueprints members. 

For those that don’t know what that is…every couple of weeks we go LIVE and pick a completely off the wall niche and build out the business plan, funnel, first email, and first content piece. 

We take it from start to finish and could launch by the end of the call. 

Its pretty darn cool!  
(Plus we have a ton of fun while doing it) 

We’re showing those on the training how the strategies of marketing that we teach here at Legendary truly work in any niche with any product. 

It helps students stop thinking small and how the knowledge you’re gaining can be used in anything online. 

Which is just so darn cool! 

This is where the content piece comes in…

20 minutes into Decade In A Day Dave dropped a huge gold boulder when it comes to content creation. 

He described, in a nutshell, your content creation plan.

Ready for it…here it is in simplest terms:

“The power of marketing is that it's not really about the product. 

It's about the feeling that the person has when they're in pain, when they're struggling, when they can't see past their own nose and their own problems. 

And you come in and say, LOOK, I've been there. (Even if it was just recently)

Here's what it was like when creating content to relate to your audience…

Share what happened. 

I found a solution.

I found a guide. 

I found a course, 

I discovered some knowledge. 

And here's what it's like now. 

Now that I've actually put this into practice, my life is different, and I want to share that information with you, so you can have that same solution and have relief from this pain. 

That’s the formula in a nutshell that I just gave you for being successful in any niche.” – Dave Sharpe 

There’s absolute BEAUTY in being new and having the recent memory of what it felt like last week, last month, last year when you too were looking for a solution. 

The solution can be anything…

The solutions that helped your baby finally sleep 4 hours or longer at night…

The solutions to finding time for self care…

The solutions to stop feeling fugly and now these new jeans make you feel xyz…

The list goes on from small micro moments of pain points to bigger ones. 

Every day we all solve problems…tiny little moments are solved.

It's about noting those, remembering how you felt and how you solved it.

Then create content that shares this. 

It’s a powerful way to connect to your ideal audience and find your online friends and community while also allowing your viewers to get to know you more and relate to your further. 

Another tip when stuck on content…watch an episode of Wake Up Legendary. 

It’s absolutely packed with ideas, quotes, concepts, and stories that can spark your own creativity. 

Be sure to scroll down and check out the upcoming interviews for Wake Up Legendary (more stories of success and inspiration).

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn

ESCAPE BUSINESS DEATH

Stopped learning?

Think you know everything? 

Your business will die.

Yikes, I’m whipping out some strong language on a Sunday.

But it’s with the best intentions.

Recently in a conversation with Dave, we were chatting about the importance of ALWAYS being open to growth and learning.

The day one decides they know everything and becomes closed minded is the day their business begins to die.

Learning is like the sunrise – it has to happen daily, and each day offers a new spectrum of colors to be amazed by.

The moment we think we've seen all the colors of the sunrise is the moment our businesses start to miss out on the beautiful hues of growth.

It’s the moment we start sitting in the dark.

It’s the moment we’re stuck looking for all the glory and results, with little to no effort.

We want change done for us.

That same person who just wants a result without the effort is most likely… skipping days of the challenge

deciding their way “is better”

skipping opportunities to learn

And hopping around from online guru to guru, searching for someone to provide the magic and create instant success FOR them.

I can bet with pretty high certainty that the same person is sitting around throwing out the word scam,, saying it didn’t work for them, and ultimately…

STAYING STUCK.

Continued learning is key to continued growth and I don’t know about you, but my goal is to be a better version of myself than the day before.

So what did I do last week to keep to this goal?

Among other things, I listened to the following webinars:

  1. Overcoming Imposter Syndrome And Self Doubt
  2. How To Grow Deeper Connections With Your Audience
  3. Content Creation: How To Grow and Monetize An Instagram Account
  4. A Masterclass In Using ChatGPT For Digital Marketing
  5. An inspirational story of what determination, grit, and consistency truly looks like to grow as an entrepreneur

WHAT A WEEK OF CONTINUED GROWTH!

Now, you might be thinking, “JoAnn, that's fantastic, but what about me?”

Guess what? You’ve got the golden ticket too!

You’ve had access all along.

Ya see, this is what was covered and taught during each episode of Wake Up Legendary last week.

Monday: Overcoming Imposter Syndrome And Self Doubt
Tuesday: How To Grow Deeper Connections With Your Audience
Wednesday: Content Creation: How To Grow and Monetize An Instagram Account
Thursday: A Masterclass In Using ChatGPT For Digital Marketing
Friday: An inspirational story of what determination, grit, and consistency truly looks like to grow as an entrepreneur

Any of those topics spark your interest?

Would any of those topics help grow your knowledge and business?

Heck yeah!

I want you to take advantage of every resource available to you.

I'm practically leaping with excitement for you to dive into this treasure trove.

I’ve even heard some whispers, “Wake Up Legendary is just students talking.”

And you know what?

It sure is.

Because they’re the heartbeats of our community, learning, implementing, teaching, and now providing you a free masterclass in marketing and entrepreneurship with Dave.

It’s absolutely beautiful.

It doesn't matter their background, it doesn't matter what niche they're in.

I want to invite you to LOOK DEEPER.

Look at the bigger picture that's being presented to you. 

All that matters is the absolute GOLD that's provided to help YOU grow your own skillset, mindset, and online business. 

Even if you can’t catch the episode live.

We broadcast the replays right there on Facebook, Youtube, Spotify, & Apple Podcasts.

Listen in the car, while in the shower and getting ready for your day.

You deserve to get unstuck and tiny actions forward will help.

I had my entire email planned out, I was heading out of town and had it finished and ready to go out.

But then this happened…

And I immediately hit DELETE on my email copy.

A post was shared in our facebook group that needs to be seen by every single person in our community. 

There was zero question in my decision.

Why? 

If you dealing with self doubt…this post is for you.

If you’re dealing with a concerned or unsupportive partner…this post is for you. 

If you’re nervous of what your future may look like…this post is for you. 

If you’re not sure the type of true community that is built here at Legendary…this post is for you. 

Or…

If you just need a dose of inspiration to continue to take action…this post is for you. 

Ya see, there's a reason we've been around longer than it was cool to be on online. 

There's a reason we're ranked 30th in Education on the INC 5000 list. 

We aren't some guru slinging a new fad every other week.

We teach skills that can create new paths, new goals, new outlooks.

We create leaders.

I won’t even attempt to paraphrase such well spoken words that Brittany shared. 

With her permission, I have shared it to our public business page for you to read.

From 2017 to 2023…their first Legendary Mastermind to their most recent.

Today, Brittany and Andre have built their entire livelihood around multiple streams of income, are successful entrepreneurs in separate and joined ventures, and absolutely living their best lives. 

And still open to learning and growing. (that's the true secret to success right there)

Removing Quitting As An Option In Your Digital Marketing Journey

Last week on Wake Up Legendary David Sharpe sat down with Cayla Ronke to talk about how she is finding success with her digital marketing business.

 

Building Authenticity and Relationships With Your Audience

 

Cayla shared with David Sharpe that one of the main ways she is finding success is through building relationships with her audience. She always strives to be as authentic as possible with her audience and is honest with them. The more comfortable she is with her audience, the more they interact with her content.

 

Being authentic with your audience is important because you want your viewers to trust you and relate to you. Being honest about where you are in your journey is what is going to get people to connect with you. When your audience sees your content they won’t want to see a perfect person, they want to see someone they can relate to who is just like them.

 

Sharing Your Story With Your Audience

 

Cayla left her desk job after it caused her to have a mental health spiral. She knew she couldn’t go back to it after the stress it had caused her. When she started her digital marketing business she didn’t think she had a story, but when she began to share with her audience about her mental health journey that led her to the online space, she was able to connect with her audience more than ever before.

 

Sharing your story is important because that is what your audience is going to feel inspired by. Everyone has a story, even if you don’t think you do. By sharing your story online you are able to connect with your audience on a more personal level. Share what brought you online and why you got started in the online space. 

 

By sharing about the challenges you’ve overcome and sharing what motivates you to keep your business going it humanizes you and also gives your audience the ability to connect with you on a deeper level. Sharing your story also helps people who might be in a similar situation realize that digital marketing is an option and inspires them to start a new path as well. 

 

Cayla strives to tell her story in a way that makes her audience feel less alone in how they are feeling. She wants her audience to know that they aren’t alone and that whatever they are struggling with they can get through it too and keep going. 

 

Removing Quitting From Your List of Options

 

When Cayla first started in her digital marketing journey, she wanted to quit many times. What kept her going was knowing that if she gave up, all of her hard work that she had put into her online business would have all been for nothing. Instead of giving up, she kept going and pushing herself to learn more each day. Cayla preps her content in advance to make it easier on herself so that she has content to post on days where she might not have the energy to create it. 

 

Cayla shared that you don’t have to have fancy equipment or make a super edited video to find success online. Don’t let a lack of fancy equipment or special effects in your videos be what stops you. Allow yourself to get creative and learn as you go. The more effort and time you put into your digital marketing business and learning how to navigate the digital world, it will be easier and feel more natural to create content.

 

When she decided to remove quitting from her list of options, Cayla made a goal for herself that she would continue her digital marketing journey for a year no matter what. Creating goals for yourself along the way is a great way to keep yourself motivated. 

 

Being authentic with your audience and sharing your story will help keep your viewers coming back to your content and feeling connected to you. Removing quitting as an option just like Cayla did will help ensure that your hard work pays off because just like she says, you can only move forward and keep learning every day.

 

Would you like to learn more about building your own profitable online business that you can do from home? If so, I recommend you watch this free video which will walk you through our #1 recommended way to learn how to earn money online from home.

We’re heading into our final day here at Mastermind and my goodness this event has been an absolutely massive fire bomb of nuggets, encouragement, community, and growth.

There’s been one overarching theme that’s been experienced in some way by every single person in attendance…

From a member that’s just starting out to those that have seen success…

There’s one thing that’s certain and Dave nailed it when he shared THIS on the Mastermind stage…

“Celebrate your newness.”

Every single person in the room, including our speakers, took action and did something new this weekend.

Whether it was traveling alone across the country to be an attendee, stepping up on stage in front of a live crowd for the first time, or attending a pretty dang sweet afterparty even though they didn’t know many there.

Embracing something new is truly where the secret sauce to stepping into further greatness lives.

That knot in your stomach that we were taught to run from, feeling nervousness, fear, or uncertainty is actually completely normal.

It’s not your sign to stop going through the challenge and stay stuck.

It’s not your sign to run and hide from being on camera.

It’s not your sign to go back to mindless scrolling on social media.

And it’s definitely not your sign to stay unhappy.

Instead…

it's your sign that you're pushing old boundaries.

That you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and ready to see remarkable changes.

It's the sign that you're changing and moving through moments that will ultimately unleash joy, creativity, and the real change you’ve been looking for.

When we do something new, not only do we give our brain a kick of endorphins…

We’re also improving our memory, mood, and motivation.

So, celebrate every action you take through every nervous emotion and every slither of self doubt…and for Christmas sakes…do it anyways. (love that Dave phrase)

Not sure where to start?

Hop on Wake Up Legendary and use it as your guide.

As always…

Stay Legendary,

One can argue there's no one more excited than a young Swiftie singing her heart out in a local movie theater for The Eras Tour movie.

Or a Swiftie LIVE at one of Taylor's stadium packed concerts…

Or even a Swiftie snagging Chiefs tickets and spotting Taylor at a Chiefs game…

I may not be a swiftie, but I do live in a KC Chiefs house and I’m hearing a whole lot about Travis Kelce’s new girlfriend.

As my husband shared with a sly smirk…”I think Travis put HER on the map.”

Regardless of who put who “on the map…” 

I see the buzz, I see the excitement that surrounds Taylor's massively committed following of raving fans.

 But nothing compares to THIS.
(and damn does her team have a kick ass marketing strategy, but that’s for another time.) 

YEP…

I’m giddy

I’m pumped

Crap…I’m already packed! (well almost)

That’s right people! 

It’s Mastermind week here at Legendary!

Your Weekly Legend for October 8th-14th

Wow, I have to say, you all are simply incredible! 

Over the last two weeks, I've had the privilege of leading not one, but TWO LIVE “Decade In A Day” Webinars. 

The energy, dedication, and heartfelt stories I've witnessed from our community have been nothing short of inspiring. 

We had nearly 2000 passionate students join us over the last two Fridays, and during one unforgettable moment, Dave asked a simple yet profound question: “What's the reason you’re doing this?”

The responses, like the ones below, left us all speechless:

“I want to be the mom I was to my kids before my divorce.”

“I want to have time again and not be just working or tired when it comes to time with my spouse.”

“I want to stop spending all my time working hard for a boss that doesn't care.”

“I want slower evenings with my loved ones.”

“I want to travel and not have so much worry in my life.”

“I want to improve my mental health.”

Dang indeed…

These are not just words; these are raw, authentic desires that come from deep within. 

It's this vulnerability, this honesty, that makes our Legendary Marketer community so incredible. 

We're not just here to learn digital marketing skills…

We’re here to support each other in achieving our dreams and transforming our lives. 

In our community, when you open up, you find a network of like-minded individuals who not only understand your aspirations but are also eager to help you achieve them. 

It's a place where you can share your struggles, your dreams, and your successes without judgment, knowing that you are surrounded by people who genuinely care about your growth and happiness. 

So, to all of you who shared your “whys” with us, thank you for your courage and authenticity. 

Your stories remind us why we're here and why our Legendary Marketer community is so extraordinary. 

If you haven't truly identified  your “why” yet, I encourage you to do so. 

Embrace your vulnerability, because it's through sharing and supporting each other that we all thrive and grow together.

Not to share from a place of complaining or as a victim…

But rather a place looking for growth towards your true goal. 

Let's continue to uplift, inspire, and motivate one another as we pursue our goals in this new season we're entering. 

Remember, your WHY is the driving force behind your journey…(and saying it's more money won't be enough to drive you into action.)

Go deeper and our community is here to help you achieve it.

Want even daily inspiration from others just like you? 

Don’t miss a single episode of Wake Up Legendary.  

These are LIVE free trainings on mindset, strategy, and a place to connect with others as well. 

Scroll down and check out all our upcoming episodes, along with this week’s Marketer’s Club topic. 

As always…

Stay Legendary,
JoAnn
