Hi there.

Speaker:

It's Sue.

Speaker:

And thanks for joining me for tips and talk day.

Speaker:

These are bite-sized topics that I pull from community questions and

Speaker:

things that I'm observing in the world of handmade small business.

Speaker:

If you'd like to submit a topic,

Speaker:

DME over on Instagram at gift biz unwrapped,

Speaker:

What if you could jump on the phone with me for

Speaker:

a quick 10 minute conversation?

Speaker:

Guess what?

Speaker:

Now you can ask my opinion of a website platform.

Speaker:

You're considering want thoughts about how to get stronger results from

Speaker:

an upcoming craft show,

Speaker:

or maybe an overall strategy discussion whatever's on your mind.

Speaker:

Now we have a slick new way to talk.

Speaker:

The second I learned about this program,

Speaker:

I saw the beauty of how it can help me serve

Speaker:

you in a whole new way.

Speaker:

It provides an opportunity for us to connect just you and

Speaker:

me in an easy and convenient way and not at standard

Speaker:

one-on-one high coaching prices.

Speaker:

Either think of the possibilities,

Speaker:

get answers to things that have prevented you from taking a

Speaker:

next step.

Speaker:

Bounce an idea off me for my thoughts and enhancements receive

Speaker:

support and ideas.

Speaker:

If you're in the middle of a challenging situation,

Speaker:

the options are endless.

Speaker:

And the best part is you drive the topic and the

Speaker:

conversation, the program I'm talking about is actually an app that

Speaker:

you download onto your phone.

Speaker:

It's called owl O w w L L owl available in

Speaker:

the apple store or Google play.

Speaker:

You can download it right away.

Speaker:

I suggest that once you do immediately set up your account

Speaker:

that way you're all ready to go.

Speaker:

When you want to make your first call,

Speaker:

as someone setting up an account,

Speaker:

to be able to connect with experts,

Speaker:

you'll be considered an outlet.

Speaker:

You fill in some basic information,

Speaker:

just like you do to sign up for any other app.

Speaker:

If you want to complete your profile,

Speaker:

there is additional information that you can fill in this other

Speaker:

detail is used.

Speaker:

If you'd like to become an expert and take calls,

Speaker:

it's a way they can confirm your expertise and approve you

Speaker:

through your qualifications,

Speaker:

but it's not mandatory to make a call.

Speaker:

So don't let that throw you once you're in,

Speaker:

you'll see that there are lots of experts you can talk

Speaker:

to who cover all sorts of topics,

Speaker:

lawyers, health professionals,

Speaker:

spirituality, and life coaches.

Speaker:

And of course your favorite handmade business coach.

Speaker:

The price for most calls currently ranges between five to $10

Speaker:

for 10 minutes.

Speaker:

So completely reasonable and worth it.

Speaker:

When you have just a question or two,

Speaker:

some of the features I think you'll love about this program

Speaker:

are it's totally focused on you as the outlet,

Speaker:

the person taking your call,

Speaker:

doesn't retain any information about you.

Speaker:

So you won't be pestered with follow-up communication,

Speaker:

unless you specifically request it.

Speaker:

That is the functionality of the app is really smooth and

Speaker:

intuitive. Also there's a countdown timer.

Speaker:

So both sides know exactly how much time is left.

Speaker:

That's really helpful for guiding talking points.

Speaker:

If you decide you want to continue the conversation,

Speaker:

there's an option at around the two minute mark to request

Speaker:

more time after each call,

Speaker:

both sides have the ability to rate the call.

Speaker:

So you can rate if the time was valuable to you

Speaker:

with your question resolved,

Speaker:

it's also a great way to gauge which experts are best

Speaker:

for you.

Speaker:

And on my side,

Speaker:

if I get a spammer or some other abusive call,

Speaker:

I can report that through the rating system.

Speaker:

I appreciate this thought of safety by way of feedback here.

Speaker:

It's important to both of us.

Speaker:

Of course,

Speaker:

now that I'm announcing this to you,

Speaker:

I plan to be available inside the app on a regular

Speaker:

basis, but if I'm not showing up as available,

Speaker:

when you have a question,

Speaker:

I've set up my account to give me a text message

Speaker:

that you'd like to talk.

Speaker:

In many cases,

Speaker:

I can make myself available to you right away with the

Speaker:

exception of if I'm on a podcast,

Speaker:

interview traveling,

Speaker:

or if it's nighttime,

Speaker:

I'm definitely not a late night person,

Speaker:

but you can always catch me bright and early in the

Speaker:

morning, Saturday mornings in particular,

Speaker:

I can easily combine calls with my schedule.

Speaker:

I'm excited to talk to you for these short sessions.

Speaker:

Please don't hesitate to place a call,

Speaker:

even if we've never spoken before.

Speaker:

There's always a first time to get acquainted and what better

Speaker:

than to get direction on something you've been stuck on for

Speaker:

a long time or hear advice that can finally prompt action.

Speaker:

Here are your steps.

Speaker:

One, download owl,

Speaker:

and set up your account to search for me by name

Speaker:

Sue Moen height and click the little owl logo on the

Speaker:

right hand side,

Speaker:

to turn it from gray to gold.

Speaker:

That way I become one of your favorites and you can

Speaker:

find me easily.

Speaker:

And third,

Speaker:

give me a call at the time of this recording.

Speaker:

All new accounts get $10 of free owl money.

Speaker:

So your first call or two are free.

Speaker:

It's that easy.

Speaker:

And there's more.

Speaker:

If you have an area of expertise that you'd like to

Speaker:

share with others,

Speaker:

just like I'm doing through the app for you sign up

Speaker:

to become an owl too.

Speaker:

I've created a more detailed guide to owl complete with screenshots.

Speaker:

If that's helpful to you,

Speaker:

as you install and set up,

Speaker:

it's so easy,

Speaker:

you probably don't need it,

Speaker:

but it's available right now at gift biz,

Speaker:

unwrapped.com forward slash use owl.

Speaker:

And remember owl is spelled O WW L L sharing knowledge

Speaker:

is such a wonderful way to give back.

Speaker:

So let's do it.

Speaker:

I'll be expecting your call.

Speaker:

That's a wrap.

Speaker:

I'm a get to the point kind of girl.

Speaker:

And this is what you can expect from these quick midweek

Speaker:

sessions. Now it's your turn go out and fulfill that dream

Speaker:

of yours.

Speaker:

Share your handmade products with us.
