I’ve shared a little bit about the award-winning The Nobody Prayer in recent podcast episodes.

So, I figured it was about time I shared a little bit more about how the film score came together.

David Andrew Wiebe, October 2021It’s almost the end of another quarter.

And some of you are already going, “hold on a second, no it’s not!

Well, you see, it’s the end of the second quarter in the yearlong intensive leadership program I’ve taken on. That means I’m just about halfway done.

Although there isn’t much time left, my team and I are looking to finish this quarter strong. And that means raising $1,500 for Sahakarini by November 19. So far, we’ve raised $718.97.

If you’d like to know what this is all about, and why I’ve taken it on, then I would encourage you to watch this quick video.

A donation of any amount will help us improve the education system, leave a legacy, and cause healing for my family.

Thank you for your generous contribution and my warmest wishes to all who’ve already contributed!

David Andrew Wiebe, October 2021I love my team. They’ve helped me brainstorm of a lot of great ideas for you over the course of the last few months. And so, what I’ll be sharing with you today is just such an idea fully implemented in the real world.

As you may know, we launched our premium online academy for musicians, Elite Players: All Access Pass a few months ago. This includes access to a members forum (and personalized coaching), all three of my courses (which are continually updated), The Renegade Musician System, Music Licensing School training interviews, weekly Members Only Audios, tools and resources, shows, and archived training. And we’re adding new content and support to the community weekly.

And we really want everyone to be able to see just how amazing this is. It’s a premium membership, and hundreds of hours have gone into it. That being the case, we can’t just give it away. But like I said, my team came up with a great idea. They suggested creating a trial membership.

And so, today marks the launch of the $1 14-day trial membership. Just $1 to access everything for 14 days to see whether the online academy is for you.

It should be said, of course, that after the 14-day trial, if you want to continue to access the membership, you will be charged $100 USD per month. We’ll send you a reminder email before renewal, of course, in case it’s not for you. But again, we’re convinced of its value, and if it’s the right fit, you’ll be compelled to keep your membership.

The quickest way to access the $1 14-day trial is through this link. But if you’d like to see what you get access to inside the community before committing, you can go to the new landing page. There’s a link to the $1 trial in the header, just in case.

And yes, this also means we’re accepting applications for Elite Players: All Access Pass again (see previous link – new landing page). And you can still gain access to it at the original price (one lump sum payment of $1,439 USD or 12 payments of $169 USD). This is the last time you’ll be able to get access at this price. After this, we will be going to a subscription model.

So, I invite you to consider this opportunity before it’s gone.

David Andrew Wiebe, October 2021I was recently listening to a podcast, and the host was describing how one of his students reported that she’d done business with a marketer who was great at bringing in new customers but didn’t offer much by way of support for existing customers.

She could have been talking about anyone. But in that moment, I felt like maybe, just maybe, she was talking about me. Because, suddenly, I started to see a missing in my own efforts. I work hard to bring in new customers, but do I work hard to keep the customers I already have? I could see that I might be falling short.

Only once have I articulated what I’m about to share with you here (and it was at The Singer-Songwriter Summit on Thursday – if you were there, glad you could make it!). To be fair, I only started to see how this would work a couple weeks ago.

Because of what I identified as a missing in my business, I created is a “Value Ladder.” That’s a technical term, and whenever I introduce a concept like that, I like to bridge the gap.

The Value Ladder is a concept I got from Russell Brunson’s DotCom Secrets. But you may already know it by another name.

A Value Ladder is like a customer journey. A sequence of steps for the customer to follow (with the customer’s needs in mind). Each step costs more, but that’s because each step offers more value.

In my business, there are four steps:

The first step is books. I have five books published, with several more at various stages of completion. This represents an excellent place for newcomers to enter the Music Entrepreneur HQ ecosystem. Books are low-cost but are packed with value.

The second step is courses. I fill my books with everything I know, but chances are you’re going to be coming away with action items after reading them. And if knowledge doesn’t translate into action, it won’t get you results in your music career. The courses show you how to practically apply what you’ve learned from my books.

The third step is personalized coaching. My courses are basically self-serve, though I’m always looking for opportunities to serve, support, and add new content. My coaching is more hands on, more personalized. I give you guidance tailored to you and your current needs. Various artists, entrepreneurs, executives, and professors have already benefited from my coaching.

The fourth and final step is the online academy. Elite Players: All Access Pass is my online academy, and just like it sounds, it gives you access to all my courses. But in addition to that, you also unlock a members only forum (where I also offer personalized coaching), exclusive video training and interviews, members only audios, tools and resources, shows, archived trainings, merch and physical products (newsletters, books, T-shirts, etc.), and discounts with my partners (AYV Music being one of them).

This all ties back to where I feel I can make the biggest difference for my customers. At each step, I pile on more value.

And now you have a roadmap you can follow from just starting out all the way to optimizing and tweaking your ongoing career efforts.

There’s still lots to do on my end, including improving my email communication at every stage. But I’m excited to assist you no matter where you find yourself today.

So, where do you find yourself on that ladder? Do you now see where I can serve you next? What actions will you be taking?
