The Simple Way to OBM Success

Certified OBMs are coming to the rescue of overwhelmed business owners everywhere! Because with internet sales reaching $2.3 trillion a year, every business that wants to stay in the game needs an online presence.

But business owners are struggling. They’re struggling with their website, an E-commerce store, a social media presence, blogs, email marketing, and much more. They simply can’t do it all themselves, and are desperately seeking someone to help them manage the overwhelm.

That could be YOU!

This Changed Everything

I became a Certified OBM® IN 2012, and MY business BOOMED! My clients were so happy to let me take over the day to day management of their business. But I became a victim of my own success. I had so much work, I was still overworked and exhausted.

It was time to take on someone to help ME, so that I could have more flexibility while scaling my business.

And that’s when my life really turned around. I hired some awesome team members and trained them to be OBMs…and THAT is the key to building a killer OBM business.

A business that works for YOU, instead you working for your business.

Seven years on, I now have a full scale Online Business Management agency where I partner with Certified OBM® graduates to keep my growing list of high-end clients happy.

My income has increased 10x

The best parts: I get to be around EVERYDAY when my kids come home from school. I built my family’s dream home – financed by my own biz profits, and get to take “me time” and family vacations that I’ve always dreamed of.

And that’s what I want for you too.

I’m ready teach you all the amazing tools and tips I’ve learned working in the trenches and training OBMs
over the past seven years.

I’m excited to be your mentor!

When you get Certified with me you’ll:

Increase your Earning Potential by working on a monthly retainer or incentive based payment structure. I’ll show you how to ditch the limiting $ per hour system that keeps you spinning on that hamster wheel.
Work with Your Ideal Clients by choosing a small group (usually no more than 3), who pay you well and can’t live without you!
Find New Clients by Word of Mouth, because when you help create success, word gets around very quickly, and you’ll soon be flooded with work—and looking to hire your                   own OBM team like me.
Enjoy Longer Term Client Relationships as you become integral to your client’s business. That means less time marketing yourself and looking for new clients!
Co-create with your Clients as you get deeper into strategy and find yourself creating new programs or products with your clients.
Establish Yourself as an Expert because you’re getting in early on this fast-paced market, so you’ll get opportunities such as consulting, mentoring, or training VAs and OBMs.

And This Will Make All The Difference

When you take part in this training with me, you’ll get exclusive access to my signature program: Team Growth Formula (VALUE $997)!

Because when you become a Certified OBM® you’re going to have clients knocking down your door… and there’s no way that you’re going to say “no” when they show you the money.

So when you’re maxed out with work, my Team Growth Formula will teach you how to bring a TEAM onboard that can take the weight off, so you’re not doing everything yourself.

I’ll teach you how to hire and train your team, so you can pivot from solopreneur to delegator-in-chief while your business thrives and your clients get VIP service.

So are you ready to become a Certified OBM®

And if you still have questions, I have answers…

Q - Do I really need to be certified?

Really great question, and the answer is of course “it depends”.

Certification is certainly not a requirement for working as an Online Business Manager. And, in fact, there are many excellent people working in this role who are not certified.

However, certification is currently one of the only ways for OBMs and their potential clients to gain confidence in each other.

When a client hires a Certified Online Business Manager™, they can be confident that this person has the knowledge and expertise required for the job. Certification allows you to connect faster with new clients and start off in a relationship of mutual trust based on this common knowledge and expertise.

Plus, it also shows clients that you’re serious about working as an Online Business Manager. The fact that you’ve made the investment of time and energy to pursue training and certification proves that this isn’t something you’re just going to “try and see how it goes” – this kind of commitment speaks volumes about your dedication and intention.

Q - I’m just starting out as a VA/OBM. Is this right for me?

Because the training is comprehensive and will give you a foundational grounding in OBM skills, you can enroll even if you’ve only been a VA or OBM for six months. But my best advice is to get on a call with me to talk it over. Schedule a call with Sarah

Q - Do I need management experience or qualifications?

I have met so many fellow online service providers over the years who are worried about lack of qualifications or management experience. And I get questions all the time about where I got my confidence to manage a team of five. And here’s the thing — we all have it in us! We manage our homes, our families, our lives, our clients, and their projects on a daily basis. And since the training program includes a lot of practical and strategic information about how online businesses are run, and what’s expected from a manager, you’ll quickly gain the confidence to step up and take charge.

Q - I’m worried my clients won’t pay me OBM rates

If you are performing management tasks like delegating to team members, planning and supervising marketing campaigns, and helping your client directly to grow their business, you should already be charging OBM rates.

Having been in this situation myself, I can tell you that some clients will jump on board straight away, but others might need some time for “transition.” We’ll talk about how to handle all of this in the course, even down to what to say.

Q - I’m worried I don’t have time for this. How long will it take?

The course runs for 90 days and I can tell you from personal experience that you can do it in your “spare time” (ha ha). The time to dedicate to this program is 2 hours a week. In addition to that, you’ll have 6 LIVE sessions with me. See schedule in the next point.

Q - When are the live sessions with Sarah?

Our Q&A schedule:

WELCOME CALL: Monday, April 13th at 11am ET (New York) / 8am PT (Los Angeles)
CALL 1: Monday, April 20th at 11am ET (New York) / 8am PT (Los Angeles)

CALL 6: Monday, June 29th at 11am ET (New York) / 9am PT (Los Angeles)

All the sessions will be recorded and available in your member’s area, so if you can’t attend LIVE, you can catch the replay.

Q - What if I can't attend all the sessions?

All the sessions will be recorded and available in your member’s area, so if you can’t attend LIVE, it’s no biggie. But I would recommend to block out time in your schedule to attend at least some of the live sessions. That way, you’ll be able to ask questions and get an immediate answer to your own personal concerns or difficulties.

Q - What is OBM Certification Week all about?

Certification Exam Week happens quarterly. The next examination week is July 20th – 24th, 2020. You will be eligible to participate in Certification Week once you’ve completed this 90 day program. Exam week is a series of practical projects and is designed to simulate what it’s like to work with a real OBM clients. The amount of time to consider for each day of certification week is 2.5 hours. The cost of participating in exam week is covered in your enrollment fee for the program. Hooray!

Q - Is there a payment plan?

I want to make this as easy for you as I can, so I’ve fixed it for you to pay in six installments of $750. 

Don’t forget that this investment in yourself is going to quickly reap rewards you never dared to dream of.

You’ll be able to increase your rates for existing clients as you take on management tasks and help scale their businesses.

And new clients who hire you as a Certified OBM will pay you double or triple your VA rates as you take the struggle out of their business and become an invaluable member of their team.

Q - Do you offer refunds?

No. We have a very clear no refund policy because we only work with students who are ALL IN! We put an extraordinary amount of time and effort into this program, and expect you to do the same!

One Last Thing

So listen up! Becoming an OBM now ensures that you are getting in on a profession that is the new way to work and in high demand.

There’s amazing potential right in front of you, not only as an OBM working for clients, but you can also:

  • Build your own OBM empire like me.
  • Or become a trainer, a mentor, or a consultant.
  • Or get so good at this management thing that you’ll start your own online business.

But what’s certain is that this investment in yourself, your career, and your family will be the best business decision you’ve made in a long time.

I’m so excited for you!!

I am so excited to be your mentor over the next 12 weeks…

Creating a profitable and satisfying Online Business Manager Career has literally given me the life of my dreams and ample time to spend with my family.

I’ve experienced first hand what it feels like to transition from a soul-sucking corporate career to working in the online space with clients all over the world.

And I’ve done it all and scaled my business from solopreneur to full scale agency model. I’m ready and willing to share all my wisdom to help you build the business (and life) you’ve been dreaming of…
