How to Name Your Program with the Golden Trio Naming Method

I’m not a naming savant.

Naming programs, modules, webinars, strategies, you name it, is actually my very least favorite task as a copywriter.

The Golden Trio Naming Method works precisely because I’m NOT a natural.

I had to find a way to make it really easy when my clients came to me in need or the perfect name for their thing. That’s when I developed this simple three-step naming strategy that works every time.

Should I Send My Sales Emails to My Entire List?

Should I Send My Sales Emails to My Entire List?

There’s one question that comes up again and again when people are launching:

Launching Soon? Warm Up Your List with This Pre-Launch Email Sequence

Launching Soon? Warm Up Your List with This Pre-Launch Email Sequence

I’ve had veggies on my mind a lot lately.

With farmers’ markets in full force for the season and a teeny little herb garden growing on the patio, we’re enjoying a plethora of fresh produce in good ol’ NJ.

It’s really amazing what a difference a freshly-picked ingredient makes.

I mean, when you cut yourself a bite of bright red tomato over a thick slice of fresh mozzarella drizzled with thick, syrupy balsamic vinegar? Omg HEAVEN.

Steal this: The proven persuasion strategy for 75% higher conversions

Steal this: The proven persuasion strategy for 75% higher conversions

Nora Roberts is an inspiration for just about any woman following a dream.

She first tried her hand at writing during a blizzard. The stay-at-home mom was snowed in with her two young boys and, as Nora describes, “a dwindling supply of chocolate.” Might as well give novel-writing a go, right?

Since that fateful February blizzard, Nora has written 124 New York Times bestselling novels, many of which debuted in the #1 spot and more that have been made into movies. She’s been called by The New Yorker as “America’s favorite novelist.”

And she happens to have a pretty fabulous attitude about taking chances. Keep Reading »
