Keeping it Clean: Kajabi implements new form process

kajabi recaptcha Mar 25, 2021
 
You’ve been told that the “money is in the list”, which is why you focus on building an engaged and constantly growing email list, right?

Right?!

Well, what if that growing list also contains some bad email addresses? Ones that were submitted through one of your opt-in forms without you even knowing?

That would be bad.

Unfortunately, like so many things on the web, a few bad actors have messed things up for the rest of us!

It’s called “list bombing” and it could be affecting your email deliverability.

To combat this, Kajabi is implementing a somewhat controversial process that has been around a long time and is hated by list owners and list subscribers alike:

The Recaptcha!

Now, before you freak out, like many people already have in the Kajabi group, let’s understand WHY this is happening, HOW Recaptcha is designed to work and WHAT you could do instead.

It’s AMA Day - Ask me Anything!

ama ask me anything Mar 11, 2021
 

On Thursday at 10 am Pacific, Kajabi is announcing some of the recent updates to the platform from the current London development cycle.

I’ll be giving you the highlights of the announcement NEXT week, as soon as I have a chance to review and test them for you!

So, for this week, let’s do something different! It will be an AMA Thursday where you can ask me anything at all about Kajabi or digital course or memberships creation and marketing.

Here are some common questions that tend to come up (and the third one is an especially timely one right now!)

What is the #1 most asked question from people using Kajabi?
Why should I use Cloudflare to set up my custom domain?
How do I verify my domain so I can use it for my Facebook Ads?

Wait, why do I need to verify my domain?!

I’m glad you asked.

If you plan on running Facebook Ads in the future you NEED to verify the domain where you will be sending people (landing pages, checkout pages, etc.)

And, you can’t do that if...

Going SLO - What's a SLO and how can it work in my business?

 

Everybody likes tiny things. They’re cute, convenient, and can fit in wherever you need.

Perhaps that’s the apparently sudden marketing trend called (variously) tiny offers, mini offers, pocket offers, or the technical term SLO’s ( Self Liquidating Offers meaning that they are intended as a lead generation strategy that generates revenue to cover the costs of any advertising)

Don’t tell me that you haven’t been pulled in by these things!

Oh, wait. Just me?

The Challenge Launch Toolkit just $27. Are you kidding me? Yes!

Oh, and an upsell for $37 for the Product Outline Playbook & Simple Salespage Workbook?

Man, that sounds like a great idea!

And my absolute favorite meta offer, $37 for a workshop on how to create and sell mini workshops.

SOLD!

On Thursday’s episode of Simple Steps to Online Success, we’ll talk about the strategy behind SLO’s why they are so popular again, and whether an SLO is a good idea for you to add to your product...

Create your own "Google" for your course or membership site content

 

You’ve put your heart and soul into creating the PERFECT course, membership and/or coaching program for your ideal client.
Your content is FULL of value and, in addition to your core content, you do Q&A calls or masterminds, providing recordings for their reference.
But then, the support issues pop up…
“How do I…?”
“I know we covered this, but I can’t find/remember how to do [insert }”
“Last week, you mentioned [insert something that you’ve said multiple times], but I can’t remember exactly what you said. Can you go over that again?”
What if you didn’t have to keep repeating yourself or spend time that you really don’t have to respond to the same question over and over again?
