Module 5 - Onboarding Processes
I've got a client! Now what? From prospect to client (contracts and onboarding) and the process that lets you grow and scale as you go
Plus....as a VIP you can leave with
your very own professional website
with 6 months of free website maintenance($1000 value!)
Why do I need this program?
Can't I do it myself?
A video feedback review of your website and business questions
Self-paced program participants receive a one-time video review of their website and up to 3 questions they submit. This is our way of making a "self-paced" lower cost program still really accessible while providing that personal feedback.
Yeah an extra couple K a month won't hurt anyone but you know you have more talent and more capability. Exactly how do you move up the maturity curve in Virtual Professional talent and begin to charge $40 - 50 / hour? And the ultimate...move into retainer package offerings?
This bonus training will show you the framework for this growth model.

A personal message from Lori
Great question! I just had to share some of my own personal philosophy so you can see how this is different and if it makes sense for you to be part of the Virtual Professional community.
I'm not into selling "internet junk" and trying to make a fast buck. I'm here to build a long term sustainable business and that's what I want for YOU too.
That's the first key difference. I say VIRTUAL PROFESSIONAL. Yes this could mean you do VA work. But "VA" has a price tag connotation around it. And, I want you to be more than a VA. The VA industry is associated now with $3-5 / hour workers in the Phillipines (who have their place in the market but that's not who you want to compete with.)
This Virtual Work industry is sooooo new, it's like the wild west. It's ripe for the stars to just take those bulls by the horns and do things BETTER. To apply the professional skills you either learned in your corporate workplace or CAN LEARN through my program.
Do you know what the #1 complaint is about Virtual workers from great business owners? THEY AREN'T RESPONSIVE.
Now come on, that's a low hurdle to cross to elevate your game and become someone's right hand girl or guy.
Professionals are responsive, good communicators, thinking AHEAD of their clients, minimizing risk and saving time like they're an efficiency superhero. And the get the contracts and kudos that go along with that quality of professionalism.
We are here to create and elevate Virtual Professionals to --- better skills, better pay, better clients, better projects. Oh yeah. All from the comfort of your home with a flexible family-friendly schedule.
PS - You'll get the inside view of my Virtual Professional Competency Matrix and what it takes to move into the $30, $40 and $50 / hour range.
What if I already have clients?
Do you want more? Are you ready to scale? Or... maybe the clients you have are draining your energy? Or…maybe your client turnover rate is HIGH and you want more long term consistent clients? Or you need a more efficient process to discover prospective clients and onboard them rapidly? These are all reasons to learn our methods to find, close and onboard new clients efficiently.
Do you offer any refunds or guarantees?
Most of all we like people to choose a program only when they are committed to doing the work and getting the results. You have access to this for a year so getting too busy is not something we consider a valid excuse for a refund. Or deciding you don't want to do the work. If you have any questions about if this is for you, just contact us lori at lorimercercto dot com. In all cases, we will do the right thing and we expect you to as well. Because, that's the professional thing to do :)
How long do I have access to this course?
Your membership access to the course content in our member portal is available for (at least) the next year. You can go thru this in a weekend if you want, some have completed it and built a business in 30 days. I recommend 30-60 days to learn and implement and get the results you want.
What format is the course content delivered in?
The course includes easy to follow video training supported by worksheets, PDF checklists. All the details are accessible in your own member portal where you can track your progress with completing each module.
Am I going to have to buy more stuff?
Nope! I show you how to do all of this and make your business work with what you have and the free version of the many nice tools that are out there to support us Virtual Professionals. Will I show you recommendations for tools? Sure, I would be a terrible teacher if I did not, but that doesn’t mean that you have to buy any of them.
Lori is a trusted advisor and someone I consider as part of my “inner circle” to help guide me in the process of building my own virtual business. Lori has:
1) Opened my eyes to the world of virtual work opportunities leveraging my professional skills.
2) Equipped me with resources that help provide momentum and quick wins to build my business, while also establishing simple, scalable processes for long term.
3) Spoken “truth in love” every step of the way!
Her desire is to help professional women like you and me, including help in avoiding some of the pitfalls and landmines that come with being an entrepreneur. Her track record of creating businesses from the ground up (both non-profit and for profit) was already impressive, but the fact that she is sharing the tips and resources from her toolkit…WOW! Ladies, look no further because Lori is the real deal.
6 Weeks to Clients gave me the tools and the confidence to step out and start my own business. Lori cuts through the clutter and helps you focus on the tools you have already.
I was inspired and empowered. 6 weeks to Clients helped me focus on how to get from where I am now to where I want to be next month and showed me the way to get there.
My network often asks for referrals to virtual professionals. I want to recommend YOU!
I want to see more successful Virtual Professionals!
Do this program well and success follows :)
