And I want to really dig deep into this not only on the podcast, but also to share with you what it really looks like or how seven figure business owners approach their business. Even if you're only making like $3,000 a month. This is like a great class for you. It's also great for people who are making 10 grand who want to scale up to 200 300 400,000 a million dollars a year in revenue because what got you here won't get you there. And I want to help you get to that next level, whatever that looks like for you.

So if you have zero sales, we're going to tell you how to get to 25,000. If you have a 25,000, we're going to tell you how to get to 100,000. If you have 100,000, we're gonna tell you how to get a 300,000 and on and on and on and on. So it's gonna be a great value add, you're gonna really love this masterclass.

So that's all for that. Anyway, today just want to talk about a quick tip to increase your average order value that is not automated. This is like a little bit of the reverse strategy. And I've spoken about this a lot of times I kind of even briefly mentioned it on my Tuesday Tip last week. But it's something that I think people forget, especially when they are trying to grow their sales. Now obviously, if you're someone who you have so many orders that you can't keep up, this probably isn't going to be the best strategy for you. But this is great for people who are trying to add some extra money and cash flow to their existing business where sales are coming in, but maybe not at the level that they would like it or they have a little bit of extra bandwidth to ship more orders. And an assistant can do this. You can do it. Your mom can do it like someone else can do it if they want to. Your kids can do it. If you give them your phone or whatever. Basically, here's the strategy, you're going to make a list of all the people who purchased from you recently whether it's at a pop up in person show or whatever, you're going to shoot them a text message, text or DM is best email. Secondary phone call also works. But I would say text and DM is best because people read their text messages. You're gonna shoot them a real text to their phone. And you're gonna say, Hey, Julie, thank you so much for shopping at my pop up at West Elm last week or whatever. I'm just making this up, right? How are you enjoying that necklace you purchased? wait for a response. Once they respond, she's probably gonna say like, Oh, it's great, blah, blah, blah, then you're gonna send a follow up text. I'm so happy to hear that. I would love to see how you're wearing it. If you're up for it. Send me a picture. And if not, no worries, I was thinking of you because there is a pair of matching earrings. I only have one pair left. And I thought that you might enjoy this to wear with earrings. Here's a link. No worries if you're not interested. Either way, I'm just glad you're enjoying the piece of jewelry. wait for a response. About 50% of the people who get a message like that, on average from what I'm hearing, end up purchasing that extra piece of jewelry. So obviously if you're in a higher price point that conversion rate might go down. But you can use a similar strategy for any type of jewelry business whether you're selling handmade work, super fine jewelry, custom work. I don't know sterling silver work that's 400 bucks. like there's a lot of different ways that you can utilize and do this. So I want to encourage you to try this tip out for yourself. And join me next week for the inside look at a seven figure jewelry brand. I'd love to share with you the seven figure scale letter. It's going to be awesome. Alright, thanks so much for listening to this Tuesday's tip today. I will see you soon and Ciao for now.
