Tom Menditto is one highly passionate fellow!
Tom rose from a previous life suffering from the mental illness ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). He mastered his own condition and today helps other people do the same through his coaching practice based in Pittsburgh.
Tom’s business has grown significantly in recent years primarily thanks to online marketing. Here’s a segment of the email he sent me –
I had bought your program during a really rough time in my career. I learned a lot, but did not apply it immediately. Things got worse. I was nearly broke….had poor health…very few clients…and less than a few hundred to my name. I was so broke…I couldn’t afford to go to my the funeral of my half-sister’s mom. It was a pathetic low point in my life.
During that time I began to apply the techniques you taught about building an online business, and applied it to my local business and blog, and within 3 months I was making enough to live, 6 months I had extra, and within 12 months I was doing 6 figures.
Last month was my best month ever at 30K. Literally I went from 300 bucks to 30K/month in less than a few years by applying the core principles of how you build an online business.
Needless to say, I had to invite Tom on to my podcast to explain his story and learn what he did to grow his business.
What I love about Tom’s story is how he took what he learned in my Membership Site Mastermind program and applied it to create an automated online marketing system for his offline coaching practice.
Tom built a blog and email list that are designed to introduce his concepts to potential clients. This education and relationship building process happens automatically, so when a person gets in touch for coaching they already know him and what he stands for. This makes the “selling” aspect of his business almost effortless.
Prior to setting up his online system Tom was experiencing poor results using traditional forms of offline marketing like attending networking events. As you hear in the interview, things really changed once Tom created his online sales funnel.
If you’re a coach or a local business owner who feels they don’t leverage the internet enough for marketing, this is an interview you have to listen to. The same goes if you suffer from a mental illness and have aspirations to leverage your “unusualness” to create something amazing.
Tom will leave you feeling inspired, that is for sure!
If you want help setting up a sales funnel to automatically market your digital products or services, you can take the same course Tom did – my Membership Site Mastermind program.
