Today I speak with Hannah Smolinksi, CEO of Clara CFO Group, on her meteoric YouTube rise.
Less than 1 year ago, Hannah had less than 100 subscribers on YouTube and a few dozen on her email list. Today, she has more than 16,000 YouTube subscribers and more than 8000 people on her email list. Hannah talks with us about her success and how it has impacted her business growth.
What has been the impact on her business?
CPAs can struggle with content marketing - it can be too shallow and doesn’t “grab”.
Hannah suggests listening to what people ask you the most, then responding to what people are asking. If they are asking the same question over and over again, accumulate the most common questions you get asked and then create videos from there.
There are a wealth of KPIs and metrics to pay attention to, but most important to watch are:
Look at the videos that get the most views, and do more around the topics that get the most views. Hannah found that videos for Sole Proprietor videos get high viewership.
There is an opportunity to do a CFO service in a 1:many model by breaking it down into something much smaller. For example, you can hone in on budgeting or cashflow, and building targeted, micro courses directed at a narrow audience.
Hannah is building out a product ladder that includes paid webinars, advisory retainer, and more.
