When the Corona crisis hit Italy in March, Claudia Witticke wasn’t allowed to do her sewing classes anymore. She thought it would just be a short holiday. But then she had to close her fabric shop as well and couldn’t produce anything anymore. From one day to the next, she wasn’t earning a cent.
This didn’t only affect her livelihood. Claudia also felt a responsibility towards her employee and decided to do something about the situation. She sensed that a lot of people would want to learn and improve their skills during the time they had to spend locked up at home. Even though it seemed scary at first, she decided to take her services online.
She joined SOMBA Accelerator (former Online Turnaround) and started to create her short-term offer, put it on her website and promoted it through her email list and on social media. Within three days, she sold 10 spots and made the money she invested into SOMBA Accelerator back. But that was only the start.
In this episode of the Sigrun Show, Claudia shares how she prepared for her first launch, how she thought her webinar was a disaster, and how she pushed through and had a $15K launch in the end.
Claudia’s story is inspiring and relevant for everyone whose business has been affected by the Corona crisis, or is doing their first launch. Be sure to listen in!
