Hey there! I’m Farideh from Farideh.com. I made 15 K from webinars last week and I’m going to break down for you exactly how I did that! The first thing you need if you want a profitable webinar is a profitable product!
One thing I see a lot of online is people thinking that all products are the same. It is common for people to make the mistake of thinking “If I make this course, “X amount of money” is how much I will make,” and this is just not the case!
Here are some key details about how I made 15K in one week with webinars.
Focus on your product:
- You have to have a tested product
I have been running Facebook Ads for Launching for 2 years. So I have a clear idea about my product and know there is a market for it. People want this course. People buy this course.
- Make sure you have a strong brand
I’ve tested Facebook Ads for Launching for a long time and I know people want to buy it. But, it really needed to look amazing and have higher level strategies involved, so I completely overhauled the course and gave it new content and a new look.
Try out webinars:
I recently decided to do a webinar after getting my completely new re-brand on the Facebook Ads for Launching Course. Previously, I just had e-mail funnels to sell this course, but now with webinars I have taken it up to another level. Why did I use webinars? Well, like we’ve all heard, they convert really well.
- Don’t give up if your webinar doesn’t go as planned
In the past, I haven’t had experience with webinars that convert really well. When I did them they all waaay sucked! Like super sucked. I was nervous, tech problems — so many issues!
Why did I try them again? Well, I felt like it was kinda wrong that I sucked at them. I’ve been a musician for 17 years! Performance is my jam! I am really good at this! So I felt like, if I can’t do webinars then that’s just wrong. Selling from the stage should be my thing.
- Invest in learning
So I invested in Amy Porterfield’s course, “Webinars that Convert”. I am not an affiliate for her — her course is just genuinely really awesome. I loved going through it step-by-step and Amy showed me just how to do a really great webinar.
- Have beautiful slides and practice often
One of the big things I learned in her course was how to have killer beautiful slides and be well practiced. I practiced all the time. I even practiced for my husband (who was like, “Umm… what is a Facebook pixel Farideh?”) So it was a fun way for him to understand what I do a bit more and get a complete outsider’s perspective.
Think about what you need to spend:
Now one thing I want to share with you is even though I made 15 K, it doesn’t mean I took home 15K. Online there are tons of things like, “6 figure launches!” and “7 figure launches!” But they might have actually made a loss. We don’t know. So I want to tell you what I spent:
- I spent $3500 dollars on Facebooks ads
- About $3000 went to the design and redevelopment of my site
I needed to move it, try new hosting, have a new pixel, have a new membership software — all these things!
- I spent about $3000 on affiliate sales
So I might have made 15 K, but actually I took home more like 3 – 6K. Which was a really great thing because I recouped all my costs of design and set up.
Learn from others:
One thing I tell people when they’re launching is that sometimes for your first launch, you may just be making back the money you invest in it. Ultimately, I am hoping to work into automated webinars. But, you know what, that is going to take an investment! Here are some key things to keep in mind from my experience:
- Who taught me this magic? Amy Porterfield
- I made 15 K! But how much did I actually make? More like 3K.
- Would I do webinars again? Hell yes!
Sharing your experiences is helpful for everyone. Why? Well, sometimes things come up that you just don’t expect. One webinar I had hecklers on the call! It was very interesting. But the bonus — now I know what to do about hecklers!

My top tips:
- Hire a VA to support you. You cannot do a webinar alone.
Just like launching, you cannot do a launch alone.
- Get beautifully designed slides, they help a lot.
- Don’t do the death by bullets.
Try to have something that can just lead you through it. Think of it as a show.
The takeaway — It’s not for everybody. I don’t think webinars are necessarily perfect for everyone, but I’m really excited to be adding them to my marketing mix!
