If you’re an entrepreneur, freelancer and marketing executive I’m sure you know what a critical role social media plays in growing your online presence, visibility and business.
Yet trying to stand out in among millions of others and get your message seen and heard is getting harder and harder than ever.
Have you been trying to get to grips with using Social Media to get the attention, leads and referrals your business deserves, but instead you feel overwhelmed, confused and feeling like you can’t keep up?
I know. It can be really frustrating to figure out exactly how to use social media to market your business because there’s so much information out there and so many `experts’ and `gurus’ telling you why social media is all the buzz and why you must be on it!
In part, they’re speaking the truth. Social Media really is one of the most powerful ways to build your brand, authority and credibility online and attract more of your ideal business.
That’s why businesses are spending up on social media to the tune of $1.7 Billion per year and why you and I are spending 110 Billion Minutes on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other Social Media sites.
But what they’re not telling you is how to use it or showing you how they’ve actually benefited from using it to grow their business.
Much like you can’t get skinny and stay that way by going on a juice-only diet, nor can you be an overnight success on social media just by setting up some profiles and expecting instant fame.
It’s all about building the foundations for a strong and lasting platform that you can use as your sales, marketing and customer service team.
When you go to the gym to workout, the only way to get in top shape is build your strength and flexibility up over time, with the right workouts and techniques.
If you’re not seeing the results you want on social media and achieving lasting results then you need to get Sculpted.
Sculpted Social Media is an online workout program I designed to get you in top social media shape and to ensure you redefine yourself online.
You will be taken through a series of step by step video workouts from beginner through to advanced with me your own personal trainer.
These workouts will sculpt your knowledge and understanding of how to use Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube to:
- Generate exposure for your business
- Increase your subscriber/traffic/opt-in list
- Establish new business partnerships
- Improve your search engine rankings
- Generate qualified leads and referrals
- Reduce your overall marketing expenses
- Close more sales
You’ll be left feeling refreshed with your new found knowledge on how to maximise your time spent on social media by doing all the above in just 30 minutes a day.
You will come away with a new social media strategy that gets real results for your business plus a weekly workout schedule that puts you in control of your social media efforts and maintains the solid foundations you’ve built online.
After I implemented several of the tactics I learned from Natalie’s Sculpted Social Media program, my business gained traction and I was able to increase my sales even throughout the holiday season. Within a 2-month period, I grew my list by 75% with very well qualified leads.

In order to get in shape and stay feeling fit, healthy and energized you have to work at it right? You need to actually show up and do the work at the gym each week, or pound the pavements on your run in order to get fitter and stronger.
The same applies to being successful in using social media for you and your business. If you show up each day and treat it as a workout in which you do the right exercises that bring you the results you want, you’ll be far more likely to commit right?
You’ll feel empowered when you track your results and see that the work you’re putting in, day in and day out, is helping you to build valuable new relationships, and driving an abundance of leads and referrals and even new business. Before you know it you’ll want to workout even more!
That’s where I come in .
As your personal trainer I give you the knowledge and insight to really propel your social media efforts further and faster.
Each week I offer you a series of strategies, tips and exercises to do that show you the right technique so that you can focus on getting the most out of your time spent on social media.
In fact it’s likely you will minimize the time you usually spend on it as I’ll be there to guide you through and correct you when you go off track. You walk away feeling energized, focused and in control.
I’ve noticed tangible results in promoting my business online since signing up. When I first started the course, I was reasonably new to Twitter and now, eight weeks on, I have 300 followers. I have also started my own Facebook page for my business and have been further developing my website and getting great feedback. It’s a easy to follow tutorial course, which I was able to fit in to my busy schedule and can refer back to in the future if I need a refresher! After doing Natalie’s course, I feel a lot more equipped to reach audiences via the internet. Coming from a traditional print journalism background, I am now able to offer media and companies the extra, and very essential skill, of social media writing and increasing their online presence. Natalie has given me confidence and guidance to branch out on my own, follow my dreams, run my business from anywhere in the world and not let anything hold me back!

Let me introduce myself! I’m Natalie Sisson, Founder of The Suitcase Entrepreneur – a highly popular blog that receives over 10,000 unique visitors each month and provides creative ways to run your business from anywhere using online tools, social media and outsourcing.
I’ve seen incredible results from blogging including a loyal community which has led her to launch my first eBook `The Entrepreneur’s Social Media Workout’ loved by many, one-on-one social media coaching and the online Social Media Club.
I’ve run Social Media Workshops in Canada, United States and New Zealand and recently made the Forbes List 25 Most Influential Women Tweeting About Entrepreneurship and was a key panelist on Creative Collective’s `Tweet Your Way To Success’ event at TAFE University, Sunshine Coast in October 2011.
With over 3600 `likes’ on Facebook, 2,500+ connections on LinkedIn and over 16,000 followers between my two Twitter accounts, I am here to pass on my knowledge, insight and strategies for increasing your online exposure, driving traffic and finding leads.
I’m addicted to social media and have built my entire business on it. I’m also an integrated marketer and digital nomad with over 10 years experience in branding, communications and business development across a range of industries.
What’s more I previously CoFounded technology startup Connection Point Systems, and helped build FundRazr, a Facebook social commerce application, so I know what it’s like to be a consumer and business on social networks.
I’m also a contributor to Forbes Work In Progress Blog, a Mentor for the Visa Business Network and a Nike Women’s Movement ambassador and I’ve been featured in Huffington Post, Under30CEO, Young Entrepreneur, Problogger, AllBusiness and Wall Street Journal. You can see my full media coverage including radio shows and speaking events on my press page – all as a result of being on social media.
I’ve used social media to find new business, sell my digital products and programs, get new clients, find new team members, get media opportunities, create new joint ventures and travel the world.
Natalie’s ability to deliver content with depth and detail is unsurpassed. She manages to teach her content to people with all different levels of abilities and still make sure people learn something new and valuable. The how to video format coupled with the guides allowed me to jump on the lessons learned and implement them into my small business immediately.

Even though I was already familiar with online marketing, I gained many new insights, strategies and tools to enhance my services and provide better value to my clients. Natalie had a wealth of information from statistics to processes and lots of tips and tools to use for integrating my social media strategy into my own business as well as those of my clients. Natalie delivers her material in an engaging, professional, intelligent and matter-of-fact way that resulted in us all leaving more empowered and well-versed in the world of social media.

Natalie’s program covers not only the basics of how to utilize social media for the business, but also provides more in-depth information and top tips to implement. She also provides ample follow-up information and resources ensuring you continue to learn and apply your social media learnings.
Marionne Lugay, Ethical Deal
The most effective insights that I got out of the program were the possibilities with Facebook and Twitter. Plus how to get the most out of our time using tools like Hootsuite to update the key social media sites all at once.
Blair Larratt, Get Smart Education
The key difference in this online program is not just the step by step workouts that show you exactly how to flex your muscles on each of these key social media sites. It’s the personal training that you will receive that’s the key point of difference.
Left to your own devices you’ll probably start out with the best intentions, and then forget to complete your workouts. You’ll start out all enthusiastic and then slowly lose your way and go back to your bad habits online which weren’t getting you the results in the first place. Having me there as your personal trainer during this 6 week program is going to ensure:
With a personal trainer you don’t have to think about what to do every week because I’ll be telling you. All you have to do is turn up, watch the video workouts and follow my instructions. You don’t have to try and figure it out on your own and make all the decisions. You just know you have the best information at your finger tips so that you can just enjoy your workout. I know that exercising requires a great deal of self-control on your part so by using me as your personal trainer I can make your job easier.
I know that when you invest in my program you’re putting your trust in me, as your expert personal trainer who knows more about getting you in top social media shape than you do (at this moment in time). Sure you can find out all the information yourself on how to use social media by trawling through the internet, but you don’t have time for that. I’m your one stop shop and I know my stuff and I’ve proven I get results, so that’s what you’re really investing in, right?
Like it or not, if you are actually going to make some changes, commit to doing the workouts and see real results you’re going to need some tough love. I won’t be on your back 24/7 but you will get a personal check once a week with me via email so you can tell me about your progress and, together, we make sure you’re on track. We can also change up the workouts to suit your personal needs. Be assured I will chase you if you don’t show up and I won’t take any excuses!
There’s a reason this is set out as 6 Weeks and 6 Workouts. You know you work better when you have an end goal in mind and a challenge to take up. This program has a start and end date in which time you know that will workout each week and track your results. This is a non-moveable deadline and that always has the effect of making it easier to stay on track and stay motivated.
