Belinda - Chasing Springtime.
"Mel provided me with direction, clarity, and a sense of calm and excitement all at the same time. Calm, because I knew which steps to take and how and when to take them. Excitement, because I could see the direction I needed to move in and how it would open doors to greater success."
Kim - Honeybee and blossom
"I love how Melissa explains things so clearly and make things that seem complicated feel much more do-able. I feel a lot more confident and able to tackle the socials, branding and online store creation for my business. You are sooooo good at explaining the logic of how successful brands visually structure their online presence to increase sales. Love your work! "

Or check out the FAQ's below? πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ
1. Why have you started thelotco collective?

So many of my 1 on 1 clients wanted something more.  They wanted to keep working together but were not sure how much time they could commit or could  not afford a full time Business Coach. I was also covering the same topics with so many of Retailers that thought I should it with many!!
2. What sort of content will you cover in the Masterclasses?

The Masterclasses will be about Marketing and Content planning (social media, edm's, facebook ads and strategy), Buying (what to buy and when), How to increase sales and traffic for your B& M and Online store, Motivation and Mindset, Time Management, Retail trends, Working with staff and VA's and so much more.
3. I only have an Online store is that ok??

Absolutely.  The Membership is all about Retail and how to manage it, grow it and love it.  You can have a Bricks and Mortar store or a Brand with Ecommerce Retail.
4. I have been in business more than 5 years will it be relevant for me

For sure.  There will be stages and all levels of knowledge and skill sets.  We will be working through lots of essential principles of Retail as well as extending to really push your knowledge and learning latest developments and trends in the industry.
5. Why do you charge in USD even though you are Australian?

I have clients from all over the world and USD is a universally understood (comparative value) currency. As well as the software and tools I use for the  Membership are all charged in USD.
6. What if I want to cancel?

If you pay monthly you will need to give 14 days notice prior to the payment date  to cancel your subscription.

If you wish to rejoin the Membership you will need to wait util the doors reopen and you will start again on the current monthly price (this will be increasing each round).

If you have paid annually you have 7 days from purchase to cancel your subscription.  No requests to cancel after 7 days of purchase will be accepted.

7. I am a bit old school and do not have great tech skills.  Will I be able to keep up?

Each Masterclass will be very practical and have detailed information about implementation.  There will also be the chance in  Q & A to clarify information and ask others in the group.

This is about learning new skills in a practical and easy to implement way without overwhelm.

8. How much time will I need to do this? I am already overwhelmed.

You will need approx 1-3 hours per month to implement tasks.  Sometimes more, sometimes less. The Masterclasses will not be hours long and stress you out.  That is the opposite of what this should be about!
9. What is your experience in this area?

I have had multiple Retail stores and my own brand for over 15 years.  I have been a lecturer in Fashion Business.  I have worked in over 100 different businesses since selling my own Retail store and understand the skills required and the many hats you have to wear as a Retailer. I am also a prolific learner and am constantly updating my skills to be able to share knowledge about current trends and new skills in this industry.
10. At only $65 a month how good can it be?

This is about being able to share the information with so many at once.  By completing the Masterclasses in a group environment it keeps it affordable for everyone.  This is also an initial Founding Member price.  Each new round the price will go up by $10-$20 per month.
