Don’t Let Your Business Run You Down
Your business is unlike any other because of one main factor…you! Your passion, creativity, and determination led you to create a business that’s one-of-a-kind. But when managing it all feels overwhelming, it can become easy to forget why you started in the first place.
If each week you feel like you have less time for the things that matter most, if you’re frustrated about spending hours on end trying to find customers and not getting results, or if you know you need to change your sales approach and don’t know where to start, our Community-Driven Business Accelerator is the answer.
Learn how to use strategies in groups that not only work to expand your business, but save you time as well.
Don’t let your business burn you out. Get results, and take back your valuable free time to do what’s most important to you!
We Love Community-Driven Businesses! They…
Increase organic referrals. It’s less time consuming—and less nerve-wrecking!—than pitching to strangers
Increase sales leads. It also gathers leads who share your values!
Increase the lifetime value of a customer. The total amount a customer buys from you will likely grow if they know and love your business and feel like a part of the community.
Increase retention. Less people tend to leave groups than to unfollow or unsubscribe.
Improve market research. Groups are a place to test out your content, product and services ideas.
Decrease marketing and customer acquisition costs. Some groups are completely free, and can save you from trying to find leads or testing new ideas in the dark.
Gather fans who will support you and cheer you on! Make your competitors green with envy!
“Consumers today also expect different relationships with brands. They don’t just want a customer support email address and a newsletter; they want deeper interaction with the company and fellow buyers of the product or service.”
Harvard Business Review
“When Community Becomes Your Competitive Advantage”
Ditch Sleazy Sales Pitches and Find Marketing that Works!
Marketing can get a bad rap, and there’s a reason for that. From pushy sales tactics to insincere ads using strategically placed crocodile tears, there’s a number of ways that businesses can leave potential customers with a sour taste in their mouths. (And if this sounds like you, our community will not be your scene!)
There are many myths about “what works” in marketing. Many claim that to increase your sales you just have to work harder and reach out to every avenue that you can think of. Unfortunately, these ideas are as false as they are pervasive…So if you’re about to message old high school acquaintances with a sales pitch, DROP YOUR PHONE! We’re here to help.
Our Business Accelerator gives you the tools and support you need to increase your audience and customer base without resorting to sleazy strategies that often do more harm than good. You’ll learn ethical ways to grow and engage your group so you can run your business as YOU, not as a sales robot. Through our Accelerator you’ll receive courses, feedback, technical support, to-do lists, and more that will help you to not only find customers, but fans!

Need a gentle nudge or some hard love? Sandra’s got you.
Q: Can I pay with PayPal?
Unfortunately, PayPal has not been playing nice with entrepreneurs lately. They’ve been investigating businesses to ensure they are legal businesses and processing money online in a legal way (even if they have had a history with PP for over a decade).
PayPal has blocked entrepreneurs from accessing their PayPal account and funds. As a result they have lost revenue and PayPal didn’t process recurring payments while it was investigating them. This has caused a huge mess with many entrepreneurs.
So at this time we are accepting payment via credit cards (aka Stripe).
Q: Will the price go up?
Yes. We see this membership increasing to $300/month this year.
Q: How can I ask my questions?
You can ask your questions on the zoom call or in the Facebook group.
On the Zoom calls we will work in a “first come, first served” fashion. When you come in, post in the chat “question” so I know you are here with a question vs attending to listen in.
There’s a lot of gold in just listening in.
Q: Who are the other coaches?
Katie Momo is our copy coach! Ask her to review your copy on your sales pages or even just your video or image caption. She knows how to tweak things for more sales and interest! Katie has written copy that sells. She has been the copy writer for many 7-figure launches.
Ita Udo-Ema is our video and audio coach! Ask him about getting your YouTube videos ranked, starting with YouTube and anything Podcasting. He is known to give you simple steps to follow that make an impact.
Q: What if CDBA is not for me?
If you find that the support, coaching and content is not for you, no worries! You can cancel anytime.
You would have the option to go back to your previous Engaged Groups membership subscription at the price point that you are currently paying. We got you!
Not so fine print:
Refunds are provided the first 7 days of membership only.
Cancellations must be made 5 business days before a subscription renews by contacting our support team at firstname.lastname@example.org.
No refunds will be given if you cancel less than 4 days before a subscription renews or after your subscription payment processes. Sorry but Stripe charges us money to refund money!
Q: Can I ask Sandra a question about the program?
Revolutionize your community-driven business with Sandra in your corner!
Hi, I’m Sandra De Freitas.
I’m a Business Coach who has been an online entrepreneur since 2005, and I specialize in launches, and in using groups to grow your audience, get its members engaged, warmed up, and ready to buy during your next launch!
I have a passion for helping other exhausted, overwhelmed business owners to turn their groups into powerful business- and profit-growing tools. Although I have no visions of being a celebrity, I’ve become well-known for the way I manage groups.
This year, I’m celebrating 17 years in business in the Internet marketing world (yes I was only 8 years old when I became an entrepreneur!).
During those years I wrote the book on using the web to grow your profits (it’s called “Does This Blogsite Make My Wallet Look Fat?”). I’ve earned more than 10 digital marketing certifications from Digital Marketer, and I’ve spoken on many big stages, even emceeing live events.
I was also a Head Coach for The Membership Experience’s high-end TRIBE + program for a year, alongside Stu McLaren.
During that time, I did launch consulting, online technology consulting, created launch debriefs, membership site tours, ran hot-seat coaching, and held more than 300 one-on-one coaching calls.
More importantly for the purpose of this story, I was the Community Manager for six of their groups (one had more than 16,000 members when I left!). I was a natural. The groups I managed thrived. They boasted high engagement, lots of sales, and great cultures. Often, I found myself answering questions about tech, strategy, and The Membership Experience course material. This all came so naturally to me that I didn’t realize it was actually a specialty!
When I left “The Membership Experience” to focus on my own business once again, lots of people were curious about the work I’d pursue. A surprising number of people—frustrated, overwhelmed community managers who couldn’t quite get their groups to take off like mine had—asked me to create a certification program for community managers. But my passion was teaching business owners (like you!). So I put out a rough course outline in one of my own groups, and so many people wanted it!
As popularity in the course expanded, I was able to expand my offerings and share more of my knowledge with others. Now, I’m happily pursuing my passion of helping fellow entrepreneurs reach their goals.
