I had an excellent chat with @sachitgupta last week on overcoming self-limiting beliefs. I have been actively combatting podfading ever since I launched @digiintroshow. It turns out that I already had the answer within me. A little self-belief goes a long way.

"Hands down, Sachit has been phenomenal at managing our sponsorship of Mixergy. We've sponsored quite a few podcasts, and working with Sachit has both been one of the easiest experiences and also one of our top performers. Typically we work directly with podcasts, but often engagement from their side drops soon after the agreement. With Sachit he worked to help us refine our offer to increase conversions, and would always be available to check in throughout the term. Thanks to the wonderful team at Mixergy, and Sachit’s work, we’ve found conversion rates have been consistently about 45% higher than other podcast sponsorships! If you’re a podcaster or influencer looking to take things to the next level (or even a company that wants to improve ROI from your current sponsorships) find a way to work with him. You won’t regret it.”

“Sachit and I worked together on sponsorships for one of his clients. Typically, I prefer to work with a podcaster directly as it allows for some of the best sponsorship.
“Sachit and I worked together on sponsorships for one of his clients. Typically, I prefer to work with a podcaster directly as it allows for some of the best sponsorship. So far, I’ve never really had a solid relationship with a network. However, Sachit has been a great pleasure to work with when it came to HostGator’s sponsorship of Mixergy. He made sure that our needs as well Andrew’s were met and was laser focused on ROI to make the partnership a win-win for everyone. Now Mixergy is one of our top performing podcasters and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you Sachit!”

FAQ

I work full-time. Do I have time to take this course?

Yes! This course was built for full-time professionals. The workshops, coaching calls, curated reading, projects, and virtual events are designed for busy professionals. In total, expect to commit 3-6 hours a week.

I'm just starting on my creator journey. Is this course a good fit for for me?

Good question. One of our guest sessions specifically focuses on how to sell sponsorships for an unreleased podcast. If you're just starting out, I'd also recommend focusing on the craft of being a creator and building a small audience where you have resonance and affinity with them.

Do I need a large audience to experience success with this course?

Not at all. Any audience size is good enough to get tangible value from this course, especially if you've demonstrated an ability to create content. What matters more is your affinity and resonance with your audience. For example, check out Mark Podolsky's case study above. During the program, we show you step by step how to build your business regardless of audience size. While I can't guarantee a specific revenue increase, every client I've taken through this teaching in the past has seen a drastic increase in their sales.

Does this only work for podcasters?

While most of the content has been created with podcasters in mind, we've had creators ranging from YouTubers to Instagramers to other influencers who've used it to make more in sponsorship revenue.

What if I want to work with clients instead of sponsors?

Great question. We've had clients use the same frameworks and strategies to get clients instead. Please see the following case studies.

How Mark Created A New Product and Added $200,000+ in 2 Months Without Spending Money on Ads

Before the program, Mark wanted to experiment with paid media and getting sponsors. Instead, we helped him focus on doing a few things right. Within 2 months, Mark created a new product for his existing audience and added $200,000 in revenue. Since then, he's gone beyond 7-figures. Mark's story is a great example of how you don't need a big audience to be successful.

She kept buying other courses but it just made things more complicated. Within a few months of joining the program, she was able to get clarity, focus on the essential but the hard stuff, bring in new clients and $30,000 in coaching revenue.

How JB Glossinger Simplified His Business And Added $10,000+ In Recurring Revenue in 15 Days JB is the host of the Morning Coach podcast. He'd already gone to a bunch of conferences, hired different coaches, bought all the course and been involved in high-level masterminds, all trying to figure out what to do with his business. But it just led to more confusion and lack of fulfillment. Within 15 days, he added $10,000+ in recurring revenue to his business. JB has continued to implement what he learned in the program and since starting, grown it to $20,000+ in monthly revenue while picking up a few sponsors along the way.
