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 Membership) 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 Membership so special. You can use these throughout all of your marketing materials:

1. In a digital landscape of online courses and memberships, why did you sign up to become a Heart Centered member? 

2. How has being a Heart Centered member 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 in Heart Centered?


1. Map out your affiliate promo plans.
The Heart Centered Membership doors are open 365 days a year. Grab your calendar and make a plan for which months you want to promote Heart Centered. 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 pre-loading 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.

Marketing + Social Copy

When writing social posts, emails, tweets, 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.

Tips for Promoting + Selling


1. Create a BONUS product
Consider offering a bonus product to those who become Heart Centered members 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 members 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. You’ll want to spread your offerings out for individuals that sign up on payment plans, so there is an incentive to remain a Heart Centered member.

2. Share your personal story
Share photos of your own Heart Centered Guidebook, where you do your weekly practices, quotes you love from Heart to Heart videos. Anything that shows off your personal experience in the membership.

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 with 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 membership. (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

It’s deeply liberating.

I keep it simple and make it very clear. The month's content is delivered in weekly batches. Weeks 1-3 will contain the most content, and Week 4 we chill out. I keep the fourth week lite so you can use it to finish up any journaling and listening/viewing.
