Speaking of YouTube…Instead of creating a brand new paid “How to Become a Sponsored Hooper” E course, I’m going to just release the videos for FREE on YouTube.

6 Surprising Things I learned from Having a Pay What You Can Sale

Aloha,

When I visited Memom in the hospital she looked up at me and said, “It’s never too late to learn something. Learn something every day.” Then she slurped her coca cola with a straw and closed her eyes. I agree. I’ll continue to heed that advice.

On a side note, Memom is okay!

Last week I decided to have a pay what you can sale for my best selling program, The Hooping with Kids Teacher Training e course. I’d been toying with the idea for a long time. I was hesitant because I didn’t want current customers to write me “hate mail” or be mad at me. But my goal is to help as many people as possible, so I did it.

This is what I learned from Having a Pay What You Can Sale:

1) I created a 3 day window for the sale. The first day, a good amount of people joined. Not surprisingly, people are afraid of missing out on something. I learned that from Robert Cialdini and Mr. Cravens back in High School Psychology class.

2) In order to override my current price, I had to manually add each new customer to my current list. If I had used a paypal donate button, I could have gotten my account suspended because I am not a charity. It was 3 days of copying and pasting! I did NOT expect that many people to join the Hooping with Kids course. So I learned to expect the unexpected.

3) The 3rd day was like a feeding frenzy. My shoulders and hands were in knots from typing. First world problems, right? The most amount of people joined on the third day, with the second day coming in at a close second. The take away: BE AT THE COMPUTER and clear your schedule during a launch because tons of people will be contacting you!

4) I learned the selling indirectly with social proof is VERY effective. I never posted about my sale on facebook at all…but tons of my current students did! I posted 4 x on Instagram, and that’s where the majority of my traffic came from…with my newsletter actually tying with Facebook. People trust recommendations from friends more than from the person who created the content (duh).

5) I hate to say it but I was happily shocked at how supportive my current students were/are about it. I was worried they would all be outraged but honestly, they are the best and most supportive people.

6) I also thought people would discredit my program if it was available at a lower price and assume it is not worth much…but the opposite happened! I welcomed a year’s worth of new students (or more) in 3 days. And I’m so grateful.
