The Solopreneur Revenue Funnel (Inspired by Justin Welsh @thejustinwelsh, Solopreneur on Twitter)
- Discovery - Short Form Content
Noodle works even if you're not on social media, but have an engaged client base. If you are currently using social media to promote your services, this bit is for you.
When you share a post to your hard earned followers, only a small fraction of them see your content. Monetizing on social media requires you to play the unique and ever-changing algorithm games of whichever platform you're on. The most successful solo workers are taking things off of social to build and monetize a network of their own.
Opening up a Noodle shop is the perfect first step in moving a small percentage of your social followers or initial client base into a domain where you are in full control. With Noodle, you own your customer data, reach all of your customers with each Broadcast message, and have digital service products built into all of your messaging tools.
With Noodle, you collect customer data through broadcasts and when you collect payments. Members of your shop gain access to all your free Broadcast messages, and get notified via email with each new one (they can opt out anytime).
Unlike traditional email marketing, Broadcasts allow you to share videos, audio, or text messages that appear in a feed on your Noodle shop. Free and paid members can engage directly with public comments, and you can jump in with personalized responses.
Relationship Building: Online Community
Driving engagement through Broadcasts and comments is a great way to develop a sense of community with your contacts in a space you own and moderate.
Your contacts and customers can comment on any piece of content you post, and share questions as video, audio or text. No trolls, no noise - all signal.

Selling your services as chat, in person lessons, or online video calls is a breeze with Noodle. Noodle creates preset products for you, and all booking & scheduling is handled during the purchase.
