The Epic Business Lock-In:

ENGAGED AUDIENCE CLUB
March 1 - April 12

This indescribably awesome 6-week event will blow your mind. And grow your brand's audience online. And introduce you to tons of people who "get" you.

Ready for the experience of a business lifetime?

"During the EPIC Business Lock-In I created a new product, new optin, upgraded my messaging and basically did my planning for 2017. Hands down, my most valuable investment this year. Not only was the content deep yet actionable, the community spirit and support was empowering and inspiring. Regina Anaejionu's generous spirit, online savvy realness draw the most amazing people to her. Don't miss out."  -Dina

As well as ways to begin to use paid advertising to draw people to your email list or online group. We'll cover:

  • Facebook ads
  • promoted pins
  • Instagram ads

It is a 6-WEEK GUIDED EXPERIENCE  just to work on authentically growing an audience for your business and future products. It's also a virtual "lock-in" ideal for you if you like the idea of working on your business with a group of other people working on their businesses at the same time. We'll all belong to an online community to chat, ask questions, vent, celebrate, and get feedback in during the six weeks and beyond.


 This Epic Business Lock-In is completely virtual, so you can participate from anywhere on your own schedule, and it is hosted by me (Regina--meet me below), an online business owner who has spent 10 years in trial, error, and growth operating multiple businesses online for a full-time income (everything from freelance writing and publishing books, to online coaching services + large online events).  I want you to skate past some of the pits I fell into and use the methods that helped me grow dozens of scalable income streams.


Your Engaged Audience Club and lock-in experience comes with lifetime access to helpful course materials, worksheets + tutorials, BUT you will also have access to:

PLUS BONUS COURSES TO EXPAND YOUR ONLINE BUSINESS 

SKILLS + AUDIENCE GROWTH STRATEGIES:

10 FULL Sections of Guided Action to Build Your Audience

Here's a not so funny, but definitely true and painful story--after months of building a new brand online, through a terrible error (and non-functioning backups) I lost my new website and almost all of my content.

So, after screaming a bit and tossing Post-it notes around my office in Mexico, I decided to completely scrap that brand and start over again. It's a fun and rewarding process, AND, you get to benefit from it too.


Enter ENGAGED LIST!


Say what? As a part of this six-week guided lock-in, you will be one of the only people seeing the behind the scenes of every decision, every bit of email list growth, and all of the strategies I employ for this new B2C brand ("business to consumer"--as in, I'm selling to individuals for their own use and not to people for business purposes). I've already begun rebuilding so you'll be able to see + swipe my ideas as soon as our program starts. If you want to build an engaged email list or direct people to a popping, vibrant Facebook Group, the 5+ main strategies I use during Engaged List will be your best friends.

Unlike many online learning experiences, the lock-in uses "Placement + Prescription" to assess where you're at and direct you through the sections, logically.

We will cover ways to grow your list from scratch for free:

  • using "lead" + "read" magnets, content upgrades, and more to draw people in
  • using the power of social media (done legitimately)
  • using the genius-ness of online events

Through step-by-step tech tutorials, planning worksheets, and several epic lessons, you will learn EXACTLY how to make 11 of the most popular content magnets to draw in your audience.

VISUAL ARSENAL
(sold for $197 separately)

Originally a popular live 4-day workshop, Visual Arsenal is now 11 hours of video trainings and a 113-page workbook to help you create stunning graphics for your online brand . . . and learn to take and edit epic photos from your phone or DSLR.

"Everything Regina produces is just so value-packed, but the lock-in with the live chats is so so motivating. Being in the same hustle mode with awesome people and being able to talk to Regina herself. I literally got more done on my side hustle in that one weekend than I did the previous six months. Highly recommend!!" -Angela

Hey, I'm Regina of byRegina.com. 


I started + grew my first freelance writing business and (separately) my freelance design and web shop on the nights and weekends, while working full-time jobs. It was rough but it was wonderful.


And I get it. If we're at all alike, your job does not fulfill you--in the least, because you are not able to show up and do the things that really matter to you on a daily basis. Or, if you have your own full-time business already, you might be feeling stalled in growth even though you know what you have to say and offer is higher quality than most of what you see in the industry. In fact, you may even feel like as I did a few years ago, like I was suffering a small creative death on the inside.

WHO AM I AND WHY DOES THE LOCK-IN EXIST? Let me tell you.

Three years ago, THE thing that transformed my business and the way I was able to spend my time was unintentionally building a highly engaged group of people who were as excited to learn authentic, effective business practices (through action-packed lessons and adult homework) as I was to teach them (through books, workshops, and online courses).


BUT, here's the thing to note: It's not enough to build an audience . . . if you want to create a meaningful brand with maximum impact, it's about building an engaged audience. I did it accidentally the first time around, but I've taught and replicated the effects because the system actually works. It's a way of thinking and treating your engaged people . . . an approach that will make ALL the difference in the growth of your online business . . . and the reason I created the Engaged Audience Club (part of a series called The Epic Business Lock-In™).

"The epic biz lock-in was my second paid course with Regina and as usual she over delivered doing Q&As with the whole group which was super helpful to get answers about every doubt I had. The community built here was extremely generous sharing experiences and feedback every single day even beyond the course deadline. I think the magic was that all of us were doing the course at the same time. Very glad I joined." -Pamela

REGISTRATIONS FOR THE ENGAGED AUDIENCE CLUB ARE CLOSED, BUT YOU CAN EXPLORE THE PROGRAM FULLY BELOW AND SIGN UP TO BE NOTIFIED ONCE IT'S OPEN AGAIN.

Psst--your lock-in comes with its own course site (organized by the main 10 sections and bonus courses you get access to). You can work through all the materials for our 6 weeks at your own pace, and you keep lifetime access to the materials so you can use them far beyond our lock-in.

  • There are 10 sections of lock-in content (shown below) that take you through the process of building an audience online.
  • There are three bonus courses and one bonus beta learning experience (Engaged List) that you can work through on your own time or refer to when they expand on (or provide further tutorials for) the steps in the main 10 sections.
  • Before we begin, you will be given a quick Placement Questionnaire and corresponding Action Prescription based on where you are with your business and your specific brand goals during our 6 weeks and beyond. 
  • You will be able to use your Action Prescription to direct your work and the order you attack things in. This will help you use your 6 weeks of lock-in time and ability to ask me any questions and get direct feedback in the community in the most efficient, epic way possible.
  • You will be able to engage in daily conversations with us other lock-in ninjas in a private Slack group (organized into helpful "channels" with other nifty features that will make our group even more legendary).


This audience-focused edition of the Epic Business Lock-In is basically like declaring your major in college as "Online Audience Building" . . . except this is way more fun . . . with a way cooler community . . . and super clear instructions that you can take immediate (seriously IMMEDIATE) action on.


In addition to the Placement Questionnaire you will receive, the question you may want to ask yourself as you determine if the Engaged Audience Club is right for you is: "Do I feel that my brand has the current audience size (and projected audience growth) that will allow me to make the impact and money I want to this year?"


If your answer is yes, you would probably do better to focus on product creation and promotion. If your answer is no, it might be best to work hard on establishing your brand in a solid way, but if that's already done, it's absolutely an epic time to grow an engaged audience for your content, products, services, and brand.

First let's talk about how the learning, the process, and the lock-in community work:

"The Epic Business Lock In was awesome. Although I wasn't able to attend live, I still feel as though I did because when I had questions, all I had to do was post them up in the group and someone who went through the same thing would give helpful suggestions. This course would be useful to someone like me who is so great at learning things but needs a defined plan for getting things done or even someone who is great at planning things, but needs the extra push, support and personalized live-chat check-ins that Regina offers in The Epic Business Lock-In. I'm so grateful to have been part of such a program and to be taught to by such an attentive teacher." -Londya

You will belong to a private Slack team with me and a few other ninjas who are working hard to grow their online brands. This is the place I will tune into daily to answer questions, provide resources, and offer help and guidance on your process and goals. This is also where I will be sharing my updates as I rebuild my "lost brand" live with you.


BUT. In addition to the Slack group (where you can add text updates, link documents, upload images, share emojis, and more), we will also have 4 live Q+A sessions, where I'll be answering your questions. We will start these in Week 3 of our lock-in, so that you have time to go through the materials and put some foundational pieces in place beforehand.

Follow along with me and a small group of motivated business people behind-the-scenes in this completely new co-learning experience. You will see all the decision-making, every bit of email list growth, and all of the strategies I employ for a new B2C brand ("business to consumer"--as in, I'm selling to individuals for their own use and not to people for business purposes). 


I've already begun the foundational rebuilding steps (it's a brand I was operating for a while and lost almost all of the content for--long, sad story!), so you'll be able to see + swipe my ideas as soon as our program starts. If you want to build an engaged email list or direct people to a popping, vibrant Facebook Group, then the 5+ main strategies I use during Engaged List are for you.

oh and

Our program officially starts on March 1 and runs for six weeks. BUT. As soon as you sign up, depending on the option you select below, you will have immediate access to:


  • Our private Slack community and/or a larger, private Facebook Group of lock-in attendees
  • The #BlogDirty30 course (as well as Visual Arsenal if you select the FULL option below)

Over 4 hours of video tutorials, 30 lessons that lay out exact steps, and a cheat sheet to keep you tracking through the whole course--designed to help you:


  • Create your brand purpose statements and a clear, useful "about" page.

  • Pick a website theme and build your site.
  • Create the email account(s) you need, create a clear contact page, and get up and running.

  • Create series content that draws your audience in over an extended time.
  • Create "start here" pages for your audience.
  • Create a launch and growth plan so that you don't become stagnant after putting in so much hard work.

The guided walkthrough tutorials in this course simplify the process for you and get you creating epic content immediately. They are worth far more than the individual $297 price tag they are sold for, and you will get insane value from them and how easy they are to follow.

"The Epic Business Lock-In was such a no-brainer investment when I made it already, and it just kept getting more and more valuable! 


The tracks in themselves are so actionable, but also action-inspiring? There are lists of twenty things you can do, or fifteen, and what I appreciate about these lists is that because I was presented with options versus just the one way of doing things, I was one, able to choose what best fit me and my audience, and two, play around with the ideas by combining them, tweaking them, and coming up with things I wouldn't even have thought of.


And then there are the really specific tutorials which Regina is so generous with. Like the opposite of a chef who won't reveal their secret ingredient, Regina's tutorials are like, heeeere have it all!! Here's the formula I used! Look at the back-end! Here's how I did everything!" -Mikli

"You should go to The Epic Business Lock-In™. My daughter is really amazing. And no, she's not a weirdo who lives in my basement and plays video games all day. She moved out last month."   --Regina's mother


Okay. True. That's not a real quote, but I promise, all the rest of the ones on this page are. And, if you'd like to tweet out a real one for me, I'd certainly appreciate it. I want this amazing weekend event to reach as many dream-builders and dream-doers as possible.


"Please join me for the #EpicBizLockin with @byReginaTV! I can't believe it even exists! Check out EpicBizLockin.com to see what I mean."  Click here to easily tweet this out.

"Regina, your Business Lock-In event has been one of the best decisions I made in 2016 (if not THE best). The community, your epic awesomeness and generosity, and the amazing gems of info you’ve packed into the event make this a no-brainer! I feel like I went from uncertainty to confidence over those few days, and it’s all thanks to this Epic Biz Lock-In. Thank you for this amazing experience and for helping me figure out exactly what I need to do to grow my creative biz — the authentic way." -Rali

Psst. Regina here. Still.

Let's create a focused, epic, lock-ourselves-in-and-go-hard atmosphere together for six weeks online. Oh, and let's stay friends in an even larger community after that. 


We yearn for community as creatives. People who get us. People to talk to. People to ask questions and get answers from. People to help. Let's prioritize those connections and our dreams, together, starting on March 1st. There are a few days left until we begin!


"The Lock-in experience was probably the most valuable online course experience I have ever had. Not only was the content provided by Regina more than excellent, but for most, the interaction in the group was heartwarming and encouraging. 


We all were in the same process, in the same time period. Many of the group members were and are so engaging. In a short period of time, I have made many valuable connections with whom I can ask for reflection on my projects and share my small wins.


No matter what the subject will be during the next Epic Business Lock-in, I am in!" -Nicolet
