Most people teach list-building like this:

 
Most-People-Teach-List-Building-Like-This.png
 
 

1. Create a lead magnet that attracts a lot of people regardless of how good of a fit they are for your products or services. 2. Send an automated email sequence. 3. Pitch.



But we don’t think that’s the smart way.

 
 
 

This is what profitable email list-building actually looks like:

 
What-List-Building-Actually-Is.png
 

1. Invite a consistent flow of new people into your brand.


2. Offer a smart, strategic sample (often a free opt-in) that relates to your eventual paid solution.

3. Use emails as a way to show up, teach, and engage with your new audience. Build a story they can’t ignore. Offer them your paid solutions as a part of your overall storytelling, and make sure you choose a single, clear sales method.

4. Read the data and evaluate what’s working and what’s not. Adjust your engagement and sales strategy. Then repeat steps 3 and 4.

 
 

So, how does this 👆🏽compare with your current strategy?

And, how confident are you that in the next 30 - 90 days you’ll implement a strategy that grows your list with the right people and allows you to sell your products or services? Scale of 0 to 10?

If you answered anything below a 9, we want to work with you to build your email list the smart way.

SERVE is amazing.png

We created SERVE Academy (which is now bundled with 2 outrageous bonus “arsenals”) to help you connect with customers who are willing and ready to pay you.

And, we’re including TWO intimate group coaching calls (the first one to get you focused on your business model, strategy, and your lead magnet; and the second to refine your strategy and your sales process) so you DON’T feel stuck and you DO know how to get results.


Regina-and-Allie.png

Having even one email list that can generate income on-demand has been life-changing. But building multiple lists that can support us full-time each by themselves has shown us that we have something valuable to share.

Ready to build your most key business asset with us?

Regina (left) and Allie (right), here. We run several email lists, both together and independently, which have not only helped us create powerful online communities, but have also supported our lives full time . . . and much, much more.

And even though we now have a health and wellness email list of over 5,000 people (connected to a site that makes a full-time income on its own) and a business email list of over 40,000 people, we both started earning meaningfully from much smaller email lists.

Regina launched her first digital program when she had 71 people on her list . . . and she started making $1,000 per month immediately. And Allie switched business models and started making a full-time living from her services when she had less than 600 people on her list.


SERVE Academy is not just some list-building course. It is personalized coaching and just the right amount of self-paced trainings to learn how to grow an engaged audience and take them through your sales cycle. (Not sure what your sales cycle is? Don’t worry, we cover that in depth in SERVE.)

But the epic thing is, the SERVE Academy experience shares everything in such a way where you only have to truly learn it once. Then you can practice it, repeat it, and know how to grow an active customer list in any niche. That is powerful 👀.

Build in creative constraints around your free offer to make sure it matches and excites the type of clients who will pay you well for what you do.

Choose from over 20 business models with examples to help illustrate each one.

Figure out key ways to serve potential customers and gather extremely helpful data/information from them . . . and MORE.

So, your only way to claim both of the bonus arsenals (which are not sold separately) AND get everything at the lowest price possible is to join us in SERVE Academy before time runs out.

When you join us in SERVE (before the timer expires), you get immediate access to the two bonus arsenals; your Week 1 and Week 2 lessons start the day you enroll as well. Week 3 will be released at the beginning of the third week, and every week following will “drip” out to you a week after the last.

The links to book your intimate group strategy calls will drip out to you in your dashboard as well.

As you’re working through SERVE and waiting for the next week of content to be released, you’ll always have the two arsenals to work through plus any of your previous weeks’ lessons and assignments.

AND NO, WE’RE NOT JOKING.
It’s really $395 (until the timer expires) for all the lessons—released weekly—as well as your two bonus arsenals (available immediately after you join us), and the two group strategy calls. Not to mention our private Facebook Group just for SERVE Academy Members.

"I like the sound and look of all these materials, but will it work for me? Who is this a good fit for?"

The SERVE Academy Framework is the same framework that we personally use and adapt for new brands, for our list of over 5,000 people, and for our list of over 40,000 people.

It’s the same system we teach to people who are just starting out (who have a clear idea of how they can help others) as well as those who are established but want to pivot or grow . . . whether in health and wellness, business/career niches, or other creative fields . . . anyone with a goal of helping people through DIY (do-it-yourself) information, or DFY (done for you) and DWY (done with you) services. That said, SERVE is not for everyone.

THIS EXPERIENCE IS NOT FOR:

  • Anyone not clear at all about how they want to serve their audience or what skills/knowledge they have to help people.

  • Anyone who is looking for an “easy” or “fast” way to make money online, rather than committed to a long game of truly serving their audience.

  • Anyone who is not willing to make decisions and move forward with testing their strategies and product(s). (We want action takers, not course collectors!)

THIS EXPERIENCE IS FOR:

  • Someone with knowledge and skills they know can transform people's businesses and/or lives.

  • Someone willing to put in the work and complete the work in each week/module—including the work of making decisions that they will test out for 8+ weeks.

  • Someone who wants to create online courses, workshops, group coaching, consulting services, or other teaching/coaching products, and wants a solid system for building towards a consistent, full-time income.

  • Someone who is interested in finding new, smart ways to attract paying customers.

  • Someone who likes to help other people and is not opposed to doing some 1-on-1 work or 1-on-group work this year.

  • Someone who likes to think critically about what they're doing and who they're serving.

  • Someone who understands the money they are trading (ex: two days of salary, or an upsell on a client project, etc.) and the time they are trading (8 weeks or more) in SERVE Academy in order to receive this guided process that will help them attract more customers, work with better clients, and build a solid, sustainable, scalable business.

If this sounds like you, SERVE Academy might just transform the way you’ve been building your business. Want to join us?

Who is “us” by the way?

 
Regina Beta Bio Pic.jpg

Regina, here. I have been writing, growing online communities, and selling products and services online since 2008. We're talking everything from freelance writing full time and designing event invitations to creating WordPress websites and publishing my own books.

I've written for, or been featured in, places such as Fast Company and Entrepreneur and events such as Teachable's annual online summit and ConvertKit's IRL (in real life) yearly conference.

Regina-Anaejionu-as-featured-in.png

I've spent a considerable amount of time over the last few years coaching people through business model issues and developing customized plans to grow their list and sell.

Quick stats:

  • I speak at multiple, large events each year on humanizing your sales funnels and building low-maintenance businesses with low overhead.

  • I studied business management in college, but have gained most of my experience (duh) from starting and running in-person and local businesses (like a cleaning business and a magazine) to starting and running brands online (like a whole different magazine and an invitation design firm).

  • I've built an email list of over 50,000 people and a Facebook Group with over 10,000 amazing business humans; also, I'm a registered yoga teacher and have 3 other fitness certifications as well 🤷🏽‍♀️.

  • When I'm not teaching/writing, I'm usually pretending to work out, searching for vegan food in some random city in the world, or watching action flicks.

Allie Beta Bio Pic.jpg

Allie here. I am a writer and educator . . . and I love using my people-person superpowers to humanize online business. In my past life, I used to run the entire backend of multiple six-figure businesses, and in my current life, I'm managing multiple brands across the food, wellness, travel, and business industries.

You'll catch me both behind the scenes of beta & beyond creating content, as well as front and center co-teaching with Regina.

Quick stats:

  • I have a BA in Literature and Writing Studies (and have written in diverse niches from magazine and food writing to technical writing in the software industry and medical industry).

  • I received the Outstanding Graduate award 🎉 with my MS in Instructional and Performance Technology (think of this as organizational and workplace learning; I love teaching and helping fellow adults).

  • I have built multiple influential Instagram accounts in a wide variety of niches--and have consulted with entrepreneurs on their copywriting, messaging, and visuals for the last 5 years.

  • Before all this, I worked with Hewlett Packard’s Global Content/Product Data Management as an image specialist.

  • When I'm not teaching/writing, I'm hanging out on Instagram (here or here usually), getting my passport stamped somewhere in the world, or helping spread the word about brands that create impact and social good in the world. Life is epic when I'm doing all three at the same time.

  • I've never seen John Wick--which caused major problems with Regina for the first few months of working together 😂.


We care deeply about your success and have tested our materials personally in different niches to make sure we’re only sharing what is working right now for people in B2B (business-to-business) and B2C (business-to-consumer) markets.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO WORK WITH YOU!
