"Oftentimes, you start a brand (maybe you start on social media and maybe you start with your blog) and you just start going! You just start creating content and you kind of have an idea of who it's for and who you're talking to. But you don't take the time to actually put pen to a paper detailing "this is my brand". That is a boss move! That is a CEO move, to really just lay that out. And it is really necessary!"
Discussed in this episode...
We wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes look at what some of the gals inside Shift are working on! It can be really lonely as you're building your business and sometimes it's great to just know, "oh okay! They're working through that too? Awesome!!" So let me tell you how I know what's happening for these gals before we dive in, and what exactly is a weekly review!
What We Worked Through
As soon as somebody joins Shift, the very first thing that we do is create a custom roadmap for them. So, you'll fill out this form that will give us all the nitty-gritty details of your business, which then helps us create a strategy with you. This way, as soon as you join, you're able to know your strategy for growth for the year. You know what you need help and feedback on. And you feel super confident in your growth plan! And then from there, you're able to submit weekly work reviews to a coach, to work through the roadmap. Some things that come up through the roadmap include strategy advice, help on working with a brand, and any host of random things!
Okay, so let's dive into some examples of recent weekly reviews!
Amanda recently hired an assistant who is actually in person with her, which is really awesome! Her new assistant is there from nine to two, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, and she knocks out a good chunk of items while she's there. Amanda has taught her Pinterest, Like to Know It, Amazon, and scheduling on Tailwind. Now she was needing a good actual workflow for her!
For this, we immediately went back to Amanda's roadmap. One of the things we'd set out for her was to really hone in on her systems. We love using Asana and know that there are other great options out there like Trello, Notion, and Airtable.
So we first asked Amanda if she was using anything like that and she said "no". So we had her join Asana and add us to her team. (That's how hands-on we are in Shift! You get us on your team when you're part of Shift!) After we had her dump a bunch of stuff in Asana and then helped her organize it and make it flow really really well. Then we went through it and together made a really great system for her assistant! Now as she adds more people to her team, she's already got all the information in there that she can easily hand over.
Other Things we Worked Through in Shift
Kera needed to hire help but wasn't sure what kind of help she needed. Based on her roadmap and what she wants to focus on this year, we helped her decide to hire someone who specializes in Pinterest Management.
Kelly needed help updating her about page and making it more fun! She needed to add more brand information and what she provides as a blogger.
Amira asked for help with an email sequence! She was able to send us previews for each of the emails. Then we were able to go in and look at them and give her advice and feedback on every single one.
Amy sells digital products on her blog. She has been having some issues lately where others are stealing her content and they are selling it themselves! We have been there working side-by-side with her through work reviews, and also pulling it into our Slack DMs, (which is what we use to communicate with everybody inside Shift) to connect her with lawyers and help her figure out what is the best solution and how to resolve these issues as they're arising.
With these work reviews, it can be anything and everything! From brand deals to affiliate strategy to growing your page views, and growing your email list, the options are endless! When you're a part of Shift, you have our coaches' CEO brains working on your business with you. We are there with you and we want your business to succeed!
