00:02:24 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yay! Congrats!
00:02:41 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: I sent my first package matrix!
00:03:04 Tiffany Souhrada: That’s amazing Shannon
00:03:04 Rachel Briscoe: My win is I’m here today because so much going on right now that I just want to hide away. Being here makes me feel so much better!
00:03:28 Rachel Briscoe: Thanks!
00:03:48 Racheal Graham: Finished my package matrix finally 🙂 And joined Meg Casebolt’s attract and activate program!
00:04:02 Tiffany Souhrada: Started revamping my website with my new brand photos!!
00:04:02 Janet Hoover: Woo hoo~
00:04:19 LaShae Dorsey: WTG!
00:04:22 Rachel Briscoe: Awesome Racheal
00:04:44 Caitlin Harrison: I used the 10 magic questions on my most recent request for a consultation call
00:04:52 Tiffany Souhrada: It was less then a week between the photo shoot and photo delivery
00:04:57 Caitlin Harrison: she did give me brief answers
00:04:59 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yahhh I love those 10 questions
00:05:21 Lisa Doiron: I have two website consult calls tomorrow and used the 10 magic questions for one of them also.
00:05:22 Caitlin Harrison: which was my fear, but it will help me process a bit more before we get on the call
00:06:41 Caitlin Harrison: she mentioned her sister handles the new clients/sales, should I ask her to get some info from her sister before our call?
00:06:52 Caitlin Harrison: (its a family law firm)
00:23:37 Janet Hoover: Checking sorr!
00:24:05 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: *sigh* technology. A few times when this has happened to me in the past I’ve had to completely restart.
00:26:30 Tiffany Souhrada: I worked for a firm where partners billed out at 4 figures per hour
00:26:35 Rachel Briscoe: I work in a law firm – they bill 460 euros per hour!
00:26:59 Rachel Briscoe: Off the charts!
00:36:59 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: It’s a good question Janet! I’ve thought of this as well.
00:39:11 LaShae Dorsey: Could you have a pool of people to pitch it to for each of the items and you can provide those dates to them which gives them the choice of whether it fits in their schedule? This way you’re managing a timeline and can continue to grow your pool of people?
00:39:54 LaShae Dorsey: So it’s going to a pool of brand designers and a pool of copywriters and a pool of SEO people.
00:40:02 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Since I haven’t actually started offering this, I was going to go to my designer and ask her what lead time she would need and tell her how she would be involved in my offer to make sure it was something she could accommodate on an ongoing basis
00:42:25 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: How they work with your process
00:42:26 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yah
00:47:00 Janet Hoover: Oh yeah, my designer is less expensive if they work with me instead of the client – which for my mid-level, I’d prefer not to do that (be the middle man), so have to think that out
00:48:24 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yeah, In my case I’m only involving my designer at the high level. High level, full branding experience via professional designer – mid level, brand-guide by me.
00:49:02 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Not sure if that helps you at all! It’s just what I eventually decided seemed to work!
00:49:10 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: *work for me
00:49:57 Janet Hoover: Yep, does help, Thanks Kaila and LaShae!
00:50:20 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yes, LaShae – very helpful to have a pool of people! Need to work on that too! Thank you!
00:51:03 Janet Hoover: A pool of you guys = dream team!
00:52:09 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Yah! We almost need to have a list of any WDA fam that’s taking referrals with their contact info! Pool of superstars complete! :p
00:52:21 Janet Hoover: Yes!
00:53:17 Janet Hoover: 🐱
00:53:33 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: The Destroyer!!
00:53:50 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: I’m there too Lisa! Building a plane on the way down!
00:54:06 LaShae Dorsey: Oooo I wonder how that could tie in with the directory that Shannon already has
00:54:23 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Is there one already!? If so, where!?
00:54:26 Janet Hoover: I love your brain LaShae
00:54:37 LaShae Dorsey: I know Shannon has mentioned it
00:54:39 Janet Hoover: Will it be my valentine?
00:54:42 Rachel Briscoe: Save the chat!!!
00:55:11 Lisa Doiron: Thank you Shannon that was really helpful.
00:56:18 Janet Hoover: Sit on your hands!
00:56:21 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: It’s ok! Don’t do it!
00:56:25 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: We’re patient!
00:56:45 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Nope. The best way to get people to click buttons is to tell them not to click buttons hahaha
00:56:56 LaShae Dorsey: we will wait
00:57:12 LaShae Dorsey: yep @Kaila
00:57:54 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Awesome!!
00:57:59 Rachel Briscoe: That is awesome!!!
00:58:06 Lisa Doiron: Love that!
00:58:50 Kaila – HeyKaila Media: Feel that
00:59:53 Janet Hoover: I like that too!
00:59:58 Rachel Briscoe: LOL!
01:00:12 Rachel Briscoe: Thanks Shannon
01:00:35 LaShae Dorsey: Thank you Shannon and everyone!
01:00:35 Caitlin Harrison: oh! did you get a chance to figure out how to share the Asana board?
01:00:37 Tiffany Souhrada: Control freak here — and I don’t do anything beyond the website — my process is kind of weird where I do the strategy and map then send them off for the content and branding, with a strict timeline of this is the week I am doing your site, and I design and build in 1 week
01:00:58 Janet Hoover: LaShae, how’s your Google site?
01:01:01 Caitlin Harrison: YAY!
