What software are you using for your e-mail marketing? Does it do everything you need?

Starting off with a simple and inexpensive e-mail marketing program like MailChimp or Constant Contact is great for many businesses. It’s a good way to begin building your list and establishing trust and recognition through regular communications.

But when your business is ready to do more online, what often happens next is that you start piecing things together.

Want to sell things online? Then you need to get shopping cart software. Want to create an online course or training that you can sell? You need a way to host it and deliver it to buyers.

Are you using or considering multiple platforms to do some of the following things?:

     Email Marketing – like MailChimp, Constant Contact, Aweber…

     Landing Page builder – like Leadpages or ClickFunnels

     Online Shopping Cart – like WooCommerce, 1ShoppingCart or Shopify

     Affiliate Program – like GetAmbassador or iDevAffiliate

     Online Program Hosting and Delivery – like Kajabi or JigsawBox

It can get to be chaotic (not to mention expensive!) to keep things in so many different places. It’s enough to make you want to pull your hair out!

What if there was software that could do all of these things and keep everything in one place?

Well, there is!

It’s called Simplero, and for the past two years, I’ve been using it to run the online operations of my business. It was created by a coach (Calvin Corelli) specifically for entrepreneurs, coaches and small businesses who want to reach more people online, and sell services, digital products and programs to them.

Of course there are more involved and more expensive options like Infusionsoft or Marketo, which are often out of reach or impractical for small businesses. (Believe me, I know! I tried that.)  Simplero is designed and priced for solopreneurs and small businesses like yours and mine.

Check Out What Simplero Can Do

Simplero seamlessly connects your e-mail list to the products and services you want them to buy. It hosts and handles video, audio, photos and other media beautifully, both in e-mails and within online programs or courses.

Maybe the best way to understand what it does is with some examples…

 I helped one client build a free 5-day audio series which led to the sale of her book and program.

     I worked with someone else to create a 6-week online program with video trainings, worksheets and some interactive components.

     I’ve set up an affiliate program for a telesummit that generated hundreds of leads and sold an audio recording package that yielded thousands of dollars.

Are you interested in setting up something like these things in your business? I would love to help you! I customize packages to set up the pieces your business needs.

Making The Switch

Last year, I helped a number of entrepreneurs and businesses get setup on Simplero.

You can move your current e-mail list and funnels over, set up your products, payment methods, landing pages, sales pages, etc…

Switching to new software may seem like more than you want to take on, which is why I created a package to help you make the transition. You can check out Simplero on your own first by signing up for a free account.

Or you can just schedule a time to chat with me and I can walk you through it from the beginning.

Make this the year you get your online software under control and expand your online offerings! Simplero can help you do that, and so can I.

If you have any questions, please feel free to put them in the comments, and I’ll be happy to answer them. Are you frustrated with your current software setup? Do you have a vision of an online product or program you want to offer? Share your experiences here and I’m sure we can all relate!
