Remove the mystery of growing your business

Are you feeling overwhelmed and stuck in your business? Unsure of how to find clients or get a sale without slashing your prices?

I’m not surprised. Social media is flooded with conflicting advice, fake success stories and false promises of overnight riches.

You might have tried every ‘solution’ under the sun, but nothing seems to work. It’s hard to find clients and even when you do, they pay you peanuts and treat you like a doormat.

After a while, you start doubting yourself and your abilities. You may even begin to picture telling your family and friends that your business has failed. Unsurprisingly, this has you feeling deflated and a great deal of shame.

The good thing is that you’re not alone. Most business owners feel this way, especially in their first year. More than 20% of businesses fail in those first 12 months BUT I’m determined to make sure that you don’t contribute to that statistic.

I believe that every business is unique. There is no one-size-fits-all solution to building your business. It has to be done in a way that feels whole-heartedly like YOU.

What you need is a step-by-step guide on how to lay the foundations for your business, market yourself effectively and sell to high-paying clients with confidence – without feeling pushy or salesy.

And I have just the thing…

Build Your Business In 5 Simple Steps

The best way to do market research on your niche– your ideal clients will basically design your offer and write your marketing content for you- if you ask the right questions, which I’ll teach you. 

How to identify a profitable niche– that you’ll be uniquely positioned to help and who you’ll love working with for the long haul. 

Create a foundation for your next 5 offers- In BYOB Beginner, we’ll design your first high ticket offer- but I’ll also set you up to be able to grow and scale with other programs your audience will jump at.

Create an offer that’s customized to the unique needs of your niche, using my Symptom to Outcome process.

Pinpoint your pricing strategy, so you can make more money in less time, without pricing yourself out of your ideal clients’ budgets. 

Design a High Impact offer– something that will solve problems your clients didn’t even realize they had- and get you the best testimonials in the process.

A wildly powerful strategy to get high paying clients – so impactful that you have to make sure you use it ethically, or you can get into serious trouble. 

Master Social Media like a pro– so your audience thinks you have a whole team on your side.

Get clients without testimonials– Most new business owners don’t have success stories, cause they’re just starting out- with Empathetic Marketing- that’s not a problem.

AKA, the Anit-Pitch Sales Call.

You’ll learn the simple 4 step process to guide your ideal clients to sell themselves on why they should sign up with you. 

Confidently make the offer– and stop chickening out from inviting prospects to work with you.

I’ll also walk you through ick-free follow-up, that’s 99.9% effective at preventing ghosts.

Clear your money blocks and limiting beliefs– because they’ll sabotage you at every stage. 

Create shame free money goals– because money will only come to you if you’re honestly excited for it. 

Be able to ask for big money on sales calls, without wanting to puke.

BYOB Advanced is perfect for anyone that has completed BYOB Beginner OR is more than 2 years into their business.

I’m excited for you and can’t wait to see what you can achieve!

I guess it's time to properly introduce myself...

Hi! I’m Katie McManus, Business Strategist and Leadership Coach. I help new business owners to consistently get high-paying clients without sacrificing their freedom, income and sanity.

I started my own side hustle back in 2018 and, despite having 10+ years of sales experience behind me, I invested heavily in online courses from business gurus that promised me overnight success. Needless to say, none of it worked.

These courses were very much one-size-fits-all, overly salesy and at times, unethical. I never felt comfortable using these sales “tactics” and as a result, I struggled to sell my services – and myself.

Long story short, I finally implemented the decade’s worth of lessons I’d learnt as a sales rep, and quit my full-time job after just 12 months. I’ve since gone on to build a multi-six-figure business and now support others in building six-figure businesses of their own.

My Build Your Own Business course combines my business, coaching, sales, and marketing expertise to create a bespoke, profitable approach that feels like YOU.

Hear from happy clients

“Right away, Katie taught me how to structure my program and fees and in less than three months, I had my first couple of clients in my new structure. Now, I’m just a couple of months away from making my business my sole source of income! It’s not just a dream I have of ‘maybe’ doing this in a year or so. It’s a reality that’s come to life in less than six months.”

Lauren Lefkowitz

“Katie helped me land my first 5K+ monthly contract in six months! It’s hard to quantify this right now because I’m still at the beginning of quantifiable growth – ask me again in a year! Katie helped me believe in the value of my work. Seeing that the work
is worthy is helping me confidently talk about my services and go after bigger contracts. Katie affirmed this value every time we talked. She further affirmed my work by sharing it via social media and referrals.”

Jackie O'Rourke

“Not five minutes into my discovery call, Katie identified something I was struggling with based on a passing comment I made and had a concrete suggestion for something I could offer new clients to get them in the door. But the main thing I remember from that call is how I felt afterwards. I felt understood. I felt appreciated. I felt excited to get back to work. Since we started working together, every metric in my business is up, I have more confidence, and I’m a better leader. “

David Fryman

“If you’re feeling stuck about “what’s next” in your marketing and business strategy, Katie is the consultant for you. In less than an hour, she provided insight and useful tools to help me grow my business by expanding my reach through social media. She’s light years away from me in terms of her knowledge and, occasionally, I had to ask her to slow down which she graciously did. Katie’s very creative and fun to work with and she respects you even if your level of knowledge is far below hers. The investment was well worth it.

Katherine Bock

Coach

“Katie helped me get crystal clear on what and when I was going to launch. She didn’t allow for spinning or second-guessing… which is her wheelhouse. There is no time to hem and haw over silly decisions. I created an acuity account by watching her training videos, and a program, and started promoting it within 2 days. I created my first group coaching program and launched it a week later. The outcome was wonderful. I learned so much about myself and what I had to offer my clients.”

Happy Client

.

“I would recommend Katie to new coaches who are ready to launch their private practice. She will equip you with SO MUCH support as a coach and as a business strategist. She is no-nonsense and also super supportive and fun to work with. She is an iron fist in a velvet glove. If you are looking to grow your business as a coach, she is your girl! You can buy a course here and there and watch all the Youtube videos about launching and growing your business….you will also waste a lot of time, and money and won’t have any support. Katie will get you “out there” growing your business faster than you would ever be able to do on your own. Don’t think twice, hire her TODAY!!”

Your questions, answered!

The foundations we teach in the BYOB program are absolutely ESSENTIAL for getting clients. Regardless of the hottest new marketing “strategy” that internet gurus teach, these foundations will always apply. It’s basically impossible to write blog posts, run any ads, or create effective social media content without these core foundations in place.

Right now, you’re spinning your wheels putting out vague, “vanilla” content that gets a few likes here or there, because you’re missing these foundations. You haven’t done the work (yet) to make sure your niche, message, and offer gets your audience excited. So what happens? They scroll right past your content, never giving you a second thought.

After BYOB? You’ll know exactly how to speak directly to your niche so they STOP, CLICK, and then BUY!

Many students make their money back WHILE they’re still in the program. Of course, results do vary, and depending on your specific situation, time you’ve spent actually doing the work, how committed you are to taking action, getting past the mindsets that are holding you back, etc.

Many students go on to make 6-figures and MORE in their business using what they learned during the program. Those kinds of results take time, but BYOB will absolutely give you the proper foundation for a 6-figure business.

A minimum of 8 hours a week. You can do this with a full-time job- many of my clients have done just that, but how much time you put in to start, will determine how quickly you start getting clients. This is only for those who are serious about starting their business NOW- not ‘someday’…

Ready to learn what it actually takes to get high-paying clients for your business?

Here’s my promise to you… I’ll guide you step-by-step, hand-in-hand if needed, through a process to Build Your Own Business of your dreams and turn you into a confident entrepreneur.

Whether you’re starting a new side hustle or are deep into your entrepreneur journey, my BYOB programme will give you the tools to sign regular high-paying clients with confidence, in a way that feels unashamedly YOU.
