keep learning from the best

s-angela “I quite often get asked why I continue to be part of the BB community, why I do the programs over and over. Maybe it is because I am a slow learner but the truth is I continue to work with Franziska and Christo because of who they are and what they have created. I have been a part of this community in some forms or other for about 4 years, in this time I have been BB grow from the kitchen table to an international business and during this time Franziska and Christo have remained true to themselves and their message. If the truth be known I stay within this community because I want the type of business these guys have, I want a strong community because I want the freedom and flexibility and yes the money would be great as well and I figure the best way to get that is to keep learning from the best. I believe that the Basic Bananas team truly understand the meaning of humanising your marketing because they live it everyday. So this is a big message of thanks for everything that you guys have created and the support that you give to everyone who is part of your tribe.”

majorly increased our conversion rate

“THANK YOU SO MUCH Susanne, Franziska, Christo & all the bananas crew!!! After last week’s sessions on Funnels, I have already implemented a couple of changes to my opt in funnel – 1 of which has dramatically increased my conversion rate of my funnel – simply putting my $10 voucher on the landing page rather than just emailing it after opting in… this coupled with our updated opt in has increased our database by over 800 in only 2 months & now majorly increased our conversion rate… You guys are legends & certainly deliver on your promise!!!!
THIS IS ONLY THE START OF DOUBLING MY BUSINESS IN 12 MONTHS!!! I knew I made a great decision by trusting you guys… Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!

After only a few months in the program, we had such a successful end of year

“Joining Basic Bananas Clever Bunch has been one of my best business decisions. After only a few months in the program, we had such a successful end of year (more than we could have imagined!). I also love the ‘done for you’ support you get as a member of the Clever Bunch. It’s so easy to get stuff done while I focus on looking after my clients. I love the step-by-step approach to avoid overwhelm and making sure I focus on the right things and the right time.”

The answers I got from Basic Bananas, I couldn’t find anywhere even if I tried

“When you run a business, you are constantly learning but the answers I got from Basic Bananas, I couldn’t find anywhere even if I tried. I could spend the rest of my life googling and I wouldn’t find the answers. Coming across the Clever Bunch and doing Basic Bananas has been the best thing I could have done for my business.”

The course material is practical, effective and instantly useable

s-daniel “I am really loving being a part of the Clever Bunch. I’ve learnt so much this year and put it into practice in my business. Christo and Franziska are a delight and inspiration to work with. The course material is practical, effective and instantly useable. At the beginning of the course I set a goal of boosting student numbers at the Circus Spot by 50% which we’ve now far exceeded. I look forward to continuing our strong growth as we keep using the tools Basic Bananas has given us. Thanks guys!””

Doing a very happy dance tonight and booking the family on a holiday as a reward to celebrate.

img-success-10“I set myself a goal that this financial year I would get 6 new clients this year. Doesn’t sound a lot but given the nature of what I do, the bottom $ were the objective. Well it’s the 11th of July (1 1/2 weeks into the year) and I have 4 new clients already AND I have changed my pricing structure so that these 4 new clients will bring in an additional 25% more revenue than they would have last year and they are getting more value too! Doing a very happy dance tonight and booking the family on a holiday as a reward to celebrate!”

I have had a fundamental shift in the way I have been looking at my business

s-helen “As a result of my last year spent with BB in the Clever Bunch, I have had a fundamental shift in the way I have been looking at my business and I see it now impacting my life in more ways than I had anticipated. My business is growing and that is a very important measurement, but my confidence and enthusiasm in handling and organising new initiatives is so much greater. I have also been looking with new eyes at all businesses whether it is shop front design, tag lines, marketing efforts, etc. Looking forward to my next year with all of you. See you in July!! Cheers”

It was the best 3.5 hours I’ve invested in in a long time!

“Aloha! I was at the Blast Off workshop yesterday and it was definitely the best 3.5 hours I’ve invested in in a long time. I learned so much in one morning and feel inspired to keep going forward in my business with a much better attitude towards marketing. If one thing stuck in my head from yesterday it is that everything I do in and around my business is marketing, even giving someone a business card! Thank you for making it fun, interesting and relevant. Thank you to the Basic Bananas Team for their part in making it an awesome day. Feeling inspired and revved up. A BIG CLAP for you guys”

These guys are on the top of the game

“I think the Clever Bunch is really good at teaching you how to retain customers, develop those relationships, build on them. Bananas has also helped me understand that you need to move with the time and actually one of the reasons that I’ve gone to the Genius Bunch is because the world is moving so fast – these guys are on the top of the game.”
Neil Driscoll

putting some of this marketing together actually helped me to represent at a larger level

“The reason that I would recommend Basic Bananas to any small business person is that being small business people, we often work on our own, and we are in a little bubble and we are looking at all this stuff on internet and we are just not sure how it all goes together…Working with the Clever Bunch has really given me a great opportunity to push myself and one of the biggest things that came out of it was the fact that we landed a big company, so even though we are a small business, putting some of this marketing together actually helped me to represent at a larger level.”
