So I've hit my first snag, the free CRM I was using has a limit of only 50 outbound emails a day. That makes it unfit for purpose at this point, I can upgrade and pay but I'm not sure I want to shell out until I have made a couple of sales anyway.

I've been toying with the idea of creating a "Register Your Interest In The Course" page but I'm not 100% sure. I've got a couple of reservations;
  1. I want to make sure I build up enough credibility before I try and sell, the last thing I want to do is turn my audience off before I've even warmed them up (my plan was a email campaign, one a week, for 4 weeks, then hitting them with the "Buy My Course" approach.
  2. I haven't published any videos that demonstrate my ability to train so people would be going out on a limb (that being said I have a couple that I could potentially edit to fit this purpose).
  3. I know reputation is king, and by pushing too soon I could lose something I cant build back easy.
Not sure what others thoughts are, happy to hear any and all opinions!?

I genuinely believe that there is a need for what I'm offering but I don't want to jump the gun so to speak.

Lots of people charge a lower price for people who want to get into some beta small-group-coaching/training programme. Maybe put a price on something like that and ask people if they’d be interested?

What if someone wanted to give you money right now?

Quick Update:

Do today marks 7 days from my first action in getting this ball rolling. I'm still working on building my course which is going to be my focus over the next 7 evenings and days but I feel like I'm started on a path that is going to lead somewhere.

Couple of Quick Stats;

Leads generated this week: 350
YouTube Subscribers: 139

Time to kick on
