During my recent interview for Mixergy, I referenced a system that I put together for Andrew Warner and his team regarding video interviews. Here I’ll share the flowchart I prepared for their team for setting up the interview and then posting the interview on the site.
When I share this with my private coaching clients I walk them through:
- emails that need to be set up
- filters to put in place
- emails to be drafted
- documents to create
Through our work together my clients are able to create complete systems like this for every thing in their business. Some are creating teleseminars, programs, events or developing a product. Others are marketing, promoting, teaching, speaking and coaching and all of these tasks require systems to operate the business with maximum efficiency.
I don’t know about you but when I need to do something for the first time (such as write a difficult email or reach out to a colleague) it can take me hours to create from scratch. With systems I can recreate and improve on the work I’ve already done, saving me time and money.
It’s not enough to create one system for part of the process, with my clients we go from A to Z and document the way they work. Here’s the process once the Mixergy interview has been recorded:
Can you tell which steps Andrew Warner can outsource? Also take into consideration the elements of each post you see on Mixergy. There’s typically a picture, some copy, links within the article, sponsorship intros, the audio file, a transcript, a headline and the video itself. How would each of those elements show up on the page for each and every post? Either Andrew would manage it himself or create a system like this one and teach a team member.
This isn’t a complete, teachable system but an overview. To be complete you’ll want instructions for sending and editing a 40-60 minute video file, copies of all those draft emails mentioned above as well as a link to the publishing calendar, the scheduling calendar and possibly even the log in details for Mixergy’s twitter account and website.
I hope these flow charts help you open up the possibility of what systems you can create in your business today. Remember to take just 3-5 minutes every day and work on one. And if you haven’t watched my Mixergy interview yet you can do so here: http://mixergy.com/azevedo-azevedo-interview/
