Planning Your Promotional Strategy


Before we go any further into Promotional Marketing, let’s clear up some common misconceptions:

  • The idea that only some people “do” marketing = false.
  • The idea that all marketing is slimy and aggressive = false.
  • The idea that if you’re creative, you’re genetically wired to be “bad” at marketing = false. 

You are a marketer because you have something (The Heart Centered Leadership Program) that you want to tell other people about. Period.

You want people to know it exists, and to fully understand what it is, so they can decide whether they want to sign up. That’s what a marketer does. You are a marketer.

Below are some prompts + questions that will help you craft your unique messaging about what makes The Heart Centered Leadership Program so special. You can use these throughout all of your marketing materials:

1. In a digital landscape of online courses + trainings, why did you sign up to become a Heart Centered Leader? 

2. How has being a Heart Centered Leader (or participant) transformed or supported you?

3. You’re sitting with your bestie in a cafe, catching up on everything. What would you tell she/he/them about your experience with Heart Centered?


The doors to the Heart Centered Leadership Program are open 365 days a year! Limitless opportunities for graceful promo + cash flow. We recommend you pick a few dates you want to market the program each year (once a quarter, once every 6-months, etc.) and utilize the resources below to get the most out of each promo period.

1. Map out your affiliate promo plans.
Grab your calendar and make a plan for which months you want to promote the Heart Centered Leadership Program. If it’s not scheduled, it likely won’t happen. Some months, you may go deep on the promotion, with dedicated emails to your list—while other months you might opt for some social posts only.

TIP: Decide which months of the year you’ll dedicate to BIGGER launches, and the rest you can plan to run smaller launches to make promoting Heart Centered for the year sustainable.

2. Schedule all your promotional social posts.
Once you’ve mapped everything out, a great way to maximize your time is by preloading as much social media content as possible. We love using Creator Studio + to pre-schedule all our promotional posts.

3. Look for cross-promotion opportunities.
Cross-promotion means that there’s an opportunity to tell people who’ve already expressed an interest in something, about another related product. For instance, if you are an affiliate of other Danielle LaPorte products, you could reach out to those who’ve purchased products before you to share Heart Centered with them. On social, if you share a DLP blog post, you could also mention Heart Centered in your post caption.


You can drop your affiliate link in lots of other places and let it silently work for you. Here are some ideas:

  • Put it in all your social media and website bios.
  • Add it (and a banner) to the bottom of your newsletters.
  • Put it in your email signature.
  • Put it in the description field of your private Facebook groups.
  • On your website About Page.

You get the idea, right?

Some of our top affiliate partners have been surprised by the number of clicks they’ve gotten from a single affiliate partner link placed at the bottom of their email newsletter, or tucked into their social media profiles.

Look around your digital life for opportunities to share your link. The possibilities are endless.

Tips for Promoting + Selling


1. Create a BONUS product
Consider offering a bonus product to those who become Heart Centered Leaders through your Affiliate link. It could be a one-on-one coaching session, free access to your product(s), tickets to an event, etc.

Note: Many Heart Centered Leaders sign up on a monthly payment plan, so consider that when planning your bonus. Be clear about how and when someone can access that bonus.

2. Share your personal story
Share photos of your Heart Centered workshops, sessions, and circles… where you do your weekly practices, quotes you love from the Attunement classes or training sessions. Anything that shows off your personal experience in the program.

3. Promote to your inner circle
Share your affiliate link with people you already know: friends, family, the people in your book club.

4. Create your own affiliate shop
If you have a website, create a SHOP page in your website navigation bar and create a page where you can load links and images to all of the products you’re affiliated with.

5. Things you love
If you have a blog, consider creating a post highlighting “things I love” or “my favourite things” and include the Leadership Program. (This is especially useful during the holidays!)

6. Share non-product content
Consider introducing someone to Heart Centered by first sharing your favourite post or #Truthbomb from Danielle LaPorte. After making the introduction through content, you may find people are more receptive and more likely to click on a product promotion.

7. Link shortening
Affiliate links can be long and look strange to people, so we always suggest cleaning up and shortening your links using a service like


Tips on selling the program from an experienced Facilitator:

Mellissa Last has been a Facilitator with us since 2016, and a source of support in this community. Below are 4 strategies that have been working as she supports prospective Heart Centered Facilitators…

1. Offer personal support. Mellissa offers structured 30 to 45 minute Q&A sessions for anyone considering joining the Heart Centered Facilitator Program. Individuals fill out a series of questions beforehand regarding what kind of business they are currently in (or want), their visions, etc. Mellissa guides the conversation around integrating the Heart Centered Content into what they’re doing (or aspire to). And if it turns out not to be a fit, she’s found segueing into The Heart Centered Membership instead works very well.

2. Follow up. After the phone call, Mellissa emails an outline she created that explains the benefits of the Facilitator program and recaps how this can support the prospective new Facilitator in their vision. She personalizes a summary of their conversation and some specific benefits to them/their business. The rest is a complete cut & paste of features of the program found on the sales page.

3. Offer a sign on bonus. Much later in the conversation with the prospective Facilitator, Mellissa will offer “signing” bonuses for using her link.

4. Be their point person. Mellissa shared that any questions she doesn’t have the answer to, she’ll reach out to Team D on behalf of the person she’s supporting. This ensures they don’t feel like they’re being passed off. She works as their point person 90% of the time, and people appreciate it.

Marketing + Social Copy

When writing social media posts, emails, tweets, any promotional materials, consider the questions outlined above
in the “UNIQUE MESSAGING” section.

Always put the most thought provoking, heart tugging line/content first! Pull people in.
Read it back to yourself. Do you dig what it’s got to say, or tune out? Use this as your metric.
