1363 – Building a Foundation of Giving with Inspiral Agency’s John Abbott

In this episode of the Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks to the Co-Founder and Audience Awakening Expert of Inspiral Agency, John Abbott.

Inspiral works with coaches and trainers struggling to sell their programs to their audience. John witnessed this firsthand and came up with the marketing approach of the Giving Model. Through this method, he addresses the barriers stopping the audience from accessing valuable resources offered by his clients and finds a way to bridge that gap for them. Making sales through this marketing strategy can make companies gain more profit. By giving more value and sharing gifts with their audience, their clients obtain advocates who will do the marketing for them — telling others about their wonderful experiences and the transformation they were exposed to.

 Key points from this episode:

  • How did the idea of giving start?
  • Coming from a place of giving can spark a new and interested audience
  • Making sales through the foundation of giving
  • How does this marketing approach affect the profits?
  • The importance of assessing applicants for the Giving Model
  • Can this marketing approach get speakers and trainers additional clients?

 Tweetable Moments:

15:58 – “The numbers work because the first ten that you sold, if you have a profitable business, clearly is a profitable model. Otherwise, you wouldn't be continuing that model.”
