Margie Shard talks with us about how MoonClerk has helped grow the bottom line of her coaching businessand why she recommends MoonClerk to all of her clients.
Can you tell us a little about what you do?
I help entrepreneurs quickly go from 0 to 6 figures, or scale from the 6-7 figure mark utilizing automation through funnels, advertising, and other online strategies. I have a very hands-on program called Freedom Academy where we help our clients create a niche with high-ticket programs and build a powerful funnel. We then teach our clients how to properly advertise so their messaging is in front of their ideal client 24/7, as well as how to optimize their funnel for higher profits.
I also have digital courses for entrepreneurs and those wishing to start their new business.
My passion is helping entrepreneurs scale and grow intentionally so they create their own definition of freedom. I help them achieve a higher level of success intentionally around that freedom so they can show up, not just in their business but in their lives too.
What are your day-to-day responsibilities?
I’m pretty hands-on with our clients, helping them get clear on their niche and offerings and digging into the different pieces of their funnels, dissecting their messaging, and helping them stay on-brand. My husband, Tony, is the guru when it comes to helping them learn how to target and run their ads and we both help on the optimization part. I also help my clients convert their qualified leads into paying clients.
When I’m not working with clients, I’m creating digital classes for entrepreneurs or on financial matters as I spent 16 years in the financial industry managing money and sold a very successful firm 3 years ago.
I also am a speaker, author, and trainer.
How did you get started?
It all stems from my financial firm. Years ago, my husband created a marketing and branding firm with the main objective of building my financial firm. We saw opportunities in the online space through social media and other digital platforms that no one had really figured out how to utilize in the financial industry.
My financial firm was amazing and I loved it, but I wanted to spend more time with my son and husband and be location independent. Because of the nature of my client base and how hands-on it was, I didn’t feel it that it could really morph to give me those freedoms.
I also wanted to do business and marketing consulting as it really became a huge passion of mine. I saw the power of being able to scale faster online than through other traditional methods and the freedom it could give me.
So, I sold my firm 3 years ago and started creating streams of income online through both 100% organic lead generation, as well as paid advertising funnels.
Through this journey, Freedom Academy was born as well as the Freedom Blueprint Bootcamp, speaking, training, and more!
What have been some key factors in growing your business?
Hands-down, our advertised online sales funnels. 99% of our business now comes from our funnels. I don’t do a ton of organic social media anymore as my funnel can reach the exact person I’m looking for and it’s automated, so I don’t have to spend my time living on social media.
What do you use MoonClerk for?
We use MoonClerk for our payment processing of one time and recurring payments.
Did you use another use another payment system before MoonClerk?
We did but we had issues with other payment systems. Payments were not being processed and we had to go back to our clients and get their payment information every month. It was not efficient and frankly, a pain.
I found MoonClerk to be THE BEST system for recurring payment plans. MoonClerk is awesome!
What made you finally decide to use MoonClerk?
MoonClerk’s recurring payment options and its ability to allow me to process payments from other countries were the deciding factors
What was your experience when getting started with MoonClerk?
MoonClerk is the EASIEST system I have ever used and fits all my needs! I can’t think of anything I would need that MoonClerk doesn’t provide!
What do you like about MoonClerk?
MoonCler is user-friendly, fast, and MoonClerk makes it easy to issue refunds.
How has MoonClerk helped your business?
MoonClerk has saved me time and increased my bottom line by allowing me to accept recurring payments from multiple countries.
Would you recommend MoonClerk to others?
Yes! We recommend MoonClerk to all our clients!
