Welcome back, SisterFriends!
Today, we are talking about the top 5 mistakes online ministry leaders make with their product offers (Faith Bloggers are guilty of this, too!).
So first, of all…I know it’s been a month of Sundays since I’ve released a podcast episode. There are tons of reasons why.
The biggest one is that I just needed to give myself and my family tons of grace. We’ve been battling some tough battles since 2019 and sometimes you’ve just gotta pump the brakes and step back for a bit.
And that’s what I did with zero guilt.
With all of that out of the way, I can’t wait for you to dig into today’s episode, not only are we going to talk about the top 5 mistakes I see online ministers and faith bloggers making with their product offers, but I’m going to give you some solid ways to clear all of that up.
Plus, I’ll show you how you can move forward with a ministry product offer you can be proud of!

This podcast was so eye opening! What “stirred my grits” lol so to speak is not understanding my audience I’m called to serve. Thank you for sharing these eye opening tips in a simple straightforward way. God bless!!
Alesia G White says
This podcast resonates with me I needed my grits stirred and need to kick it up a notch …and bring it!
Stay in one lane. Stop swerving all over the highway thinking you will get to your destination faster. Offering 12 things at one time thinking you will reach your goal (destination faster). Throwing spaghetti at the wall.
I. Need. An. Audience!
What resonated the most is have a strategy!
YES!! A strategy is a must!!
Great ideas and so many take aways, but it all comes back to my focus.
Make a strategy, no throwing spaghetti! Focus, focus, focus. After listening, I need to be more focussed! Stop thinking and start a strategy.
Love this podcast. Honest, truthful and inspiring. I appreciate Angelica and her willingness to share her experience and expertise. You can hear her passion for helping us grow our ministries.
Great information to hear on the front end. Excited that I am starting with the end of mind. Excited to create a a FEW Holy Ghost offers with a last days anointing!!!

I loved this podcast when I listened to it over a year ago but I can listen to Angelica’s episodes the same way I can watch every season of Friends…over and over and still laugh, learn and be blown away. Angelica’s wisdom, passion and drive to help us in our ministries just has a way of firing up the soul and really getting you to get serious about what you are doing..and WHY you are doing it – all for the glory of the Lord.
The ‘throwing the spaghetti at the wall’ analogy is what I had been doing for over four years and it wasn’t until I found Angelica’s teaching did I Get Clear – check out the Get Clear Bootcamp – about the vision God had for me. The episode about the Product Suite changed it all for me and this is the first year that I have made money in my Online Ministry.
Also the time I spent in KIIC was powerful, inspiring and so encouraging…can’t wait to get back in there. If you have been doing Online Ministry for years and not getting anywhere then Angelica is the teaching, leading, guidance and encouragement you need to be successful.
THANK YOU ANGELICA, TRULY BLESSED BY YOU XX
Crystal Fadipe says
Sooo fullfilling…I enjoyed every moment and didn’t want it to end…so many truths spoken in this podcast. Excited for more
Very good insight! I need to wake up and get going…. Stirring my grits for sure! Making me really think about that ONE offer…hmmmm thank you!
Richetta Porter says
The one of the mistakes that resonated with me is “Do not be BORING!”
Luz Jazmin says
These were super helpful! The podcast is great can’t wait to listen to more episodes.
Stephanie D Letka says
Love it!! so many notes, how to pick out the best points shared?!?! The points that hit me upside the head “stirred my grits” lol: “GOD did not make you a cheap carbon copy!” and funny thing, this isn’t the first time I believe GOD has been trying to get me to sink this in…… find the ONE thing! You can expand into more specifics from ONE main thing!!! Find it and then share it as YOU and not in a boring way! 😀
I have listened to this about 3 times and each time something different hit. Don’t be boring was it for me today.
Nadia Rodríguez says
Thank you, I really need to think about where I am going? I’m guilty of hosting an excellent then being asked what’s next. Thank you for reminding me.
Great episode! It was very informative and definitely made me think of how some things to do and not do in order to grow my online ministry.
Amazing Episode! The points were clear, concise and helpful. “No fluff stuff!” I will definitely take this information and incorporate them in my online ministry. Angelica gave us an unapologetic pep talk to get it done. Love it!
Angelica delivered some great advice. She is straight to the point. I took some great notes from this episode.
Great information!!! I don’t have any offers yet. I am glad I listened to this, so I know what not to do.
Della M Major says
Episode 28: 5 mistakes online ministry leaders make with the product offers was AWESOME! Each point scaffold every level of learning that I needed to start my online ministry correctly. Mistake #3 resonated with me the most. The question: Where do I want it to end? and What is the end transformation I want my clients to have? These questions will definitely guide me in developing the right product and not just any product that can sell.
Keep God’s priorities the main priority!. Stay focus. When we rest, we work well. On selling my online products, tailor our products to one main thing. Bundle or consolidate multiple products.
Strategize! When there is no strategy, it leaves client asking. “What’s next?” Look toward my end goal or result. Offers should align with calling and anointing.
Knowing who I am is key for me. I am a Designer’s original, not a carbon copy.
Don’t make my offers boring. Align them with current atmosphere as Holy Ghost leads. Quite informative and refreshing. Revelation brings transformation.
Bruh! This was fire! 🔥 ❤️ 🖤 Powerful powerful word! My takeaway is that my offer must lead to a goal in mind. What transformation is expected?
What is the purpose?
And I have to add that my offer can’t be boring!
I need to get in the grits, be real, be funny, and go all in!
Loved it girl! Loved it!
Inga Green says
So, I am starting at ground zero regarding online ministry, I don’t have one yet!! Notice I said not yet!! So this information is very beneficial to me. There are so many positive takeaways that stirred my grits-WOW!!!! Some areas that really resonated and gained an extra stir or two in them there grits: “always ask myself what’s next? Start with the end in mind.” Don’t have boring offers–Have depth. Give meat that offers the tastiest chew that’s so rich the audience can’t help but to share what they’ve encountered with others. That the lives of the audience is so blessed and transformed from God’s ordained ministry through me that they can help but to return time and time again to hear, “what thus says the Lord!!!! Keep on stirring those grits…LOVING IT!!
Glad to hear I’ve provoked you, Inga! God has a plan– all you need to do is follow His leading!
Rhonda White says
I am the church. I must be the church. People want the meat of the Word. I am not a cheap carbon copy. I am unique and the master copy. I will create something that is not boring, flat, or has no depth.
Vonna Jones says
My God! This was very inspiring. Learning the 5 ministry online mistakes was enlightening and as I be not started my online ministry this truly will help me not to make these mistakes.
Such good information. I’m excited to get started! Praying for all of us as we journey through this together!
Joy Manning says
This was great….I agree with keeping the offer simple, streamlined and focused!
Great podcast. Keeping product line simple spoke to me, and to specialize in your field of expertise in order to help your clientele.
This was amazing (which they always are!!) I AM NOT a carbon copy, and I will not be throwing spaghetti at the wall, but will definitely be serving some meat!!
That’s right, SisterFriend! You got this! 💕
Laurie Buchanan says
Great episode, fully enjoyed it! Fully of wonderful information!
Ashley Hernandez says
The thing that stood out to me the most was #5 – boring. What I’m going to start doing is creating something with the end goal in mind and make sure that I’m putting out something that my community can chew on. Not just surface level boring content or products. Thank you so much for this, Angelica!
This was so helpful and insightful. This is really a blessing to understand your anointing and understanding what outcomes should occur when others encounter your anointing. I love when you made it clear you are not a carbon copy
Dorice Johnson Merritt says
Your elaboration on Mistake #5, Boring resonates with me. History has shown repeatedly that the established church usually must be forced to accept change. Your description of the grumbling from believers about their building closure attest that many were not intuned with things that were taking place in the spiritual realm. As you stated, instead of complaining, churches should have been jumping for joy for the awesome opportunity presented to fulfill the “Great Commission” using the internet.
Thank you so much for all you do by teaching by example. Showing others the way. I enjoy learning from you. Thank you. More grace IJMN.
Erica Young says
My biggest takeaway was that my offer needs to align with my anointing and not to be boring, while having a small intentional/effective product suite!
Lisa Leggett says
This was awesome!!! My takeaway is that taking steps in faith, obedience and alignment with GOD’s plan, helps us to fulfill our purpose in God. And fulfilling that purpose (even if it’s things we sell, if we are honoring God) allows us to leave a legacy!
Thank you for this! It has never been explained in depth as to why Jesus was angry. I love your down to earth teaching.
My pleasure, Amy! 💕
So glad I signed up for this boot camp! Your teaching is so inspirational, somehow I listened to episode 49, but it was awesome and I highly recommend that one too 😀❣️ I needed Episode 48 for the kick I needed to recognize that what I have to offer has value, and My Time has value as well
M of it was awesome, and the spaghetti example grabbed me the most
Thank you for sharing so many great insights! Two that are sticking out to me heavily are that I need an audience, and that I need to focus on one thing. I want to focus on doing something well so it’s both engaging and transformative.
I’m guilty of jumping in with two feet, full speed run! Then I fizzle out cause I’m not patient for the process!
Thanks for the give myself grace and work the process encouragement!
This was amazing so many truths spoken here!
Roeshelle L. Lewis says
1. Strategy is an important step.2. I should not just throw spaghetti on the wall.3. My offers must align with my anointing and calling.
I have been encouraged to stay focused a d be interesting to keep my listeners !
Patricia Lee Bell says
The one thing that stood out the most was #5 – boring. If it’s boring God ain’t in it. The parts about Grow-Up Juice in forever in my head.
Penny Lee says
I really took alot from this, great information that resonated with me. Don’t have too many products to offer. Make sure your products are cohesive and align with your calling. It’s so important to start with the end in mind. would have never thought about that. I am so excited to get started with the priorities that God is giving to me. Thanks for your passion and teaching.
So glad it resonated with you, Penny. 💕
I just love the insight on having too many products and the idea of bundling. I’m not keeping with posting, but sure listening!
