STOP the MADNESS !!!
If You Really Want To Make Money Online
You must stop being the buyer AND start being the seller…
Are you tired of buying course after course of the latest flash in the pan, hit of the day, supety duper, “How to make Money Online” program that is not quite the step by step blueprint that was claimed in the sales page?
Do you really want to make money online?
Substantial job ending income?
Then you need to stop buying every new course that crosses your path.
Stop buying into every slick sales page claims.
We have all fallen for all their smoke and mirrors, all their hypey sales pages.
You need to get out of their sales funnels and start your own.
How to make money online…in a nutshell.
- You must create a list…Period.
- You then send related offers to that list in your chosen niche.
In the beginning you will be sending affiliate offers to generate some income.
But, the job ending income is when you create your own product so affiliates can sell for you.So instead of a cut of the product price you will get full amount when you send to your list. And when you drive traffic yourself.
You can have affiliates selling for you. So if you have 10, 25, 50, 100 or more affiliates promoting your product, can you imagine how your income could increase at an astounding rate?
Imagine if each affiliate sent just one buyer to you a month? When you wanted to increase your income you could either create another product to send to your list and to your separate list of affiliates.
Or just concentrate on recruiting more affiliates.
Practically everyone making real good money online are doing these 2 things over and over in their chosen niche or niches.
Not 10 or 20 different niches or a 100 as some would have you believe. Just a few solid niches and you are set.
But, how do you do these things simply and quickly?
It takes some work. Not work like the kind of work where you slave all day everyday at your day job. But, there are certain skills that you must learn to set up these income streams.
The good news is that it doesn’t take that long to learn these skills if taken in bite size morsels in the sequence that you will later put them into action.
…after you learn the basic skills you don’t need to re-learn them every time you set up a new income stream. And every time you do it, it gets easier.
It IS just like riding a bike.
The day after you first rode a bike, did you magically forget how overnight?
Did mom or dad have to run along behind holding onto the seat, again?
Of coarse not, you hopped on your bike and took off. Plus, each day you got better and better till it was second nature to where you didn’t even need to think about it.
That is how you will be in your online business once you decide to learn the skills necessary to build your business. And it will get easier, if you learn these skills.
KEEP READING…Don’t freak out and stop reading because of fear of what lies ahead. Continue…you will be glad you did. It is crazy simple.
How much will all this cost me?
As for the costs to start building your business…
Much less than the endless mounds of cash you’ve been spending on countless programs that have promised the moon and not delivered.
This is a business and you will have to invest some money in your business but not a ton.
Many have an image in their heads that since it is easy to surf the internet then it must be just as easy to make money on the internet.
And many marketers would like you to believe all you need to do is click a few buttons, put up some ads, write a few articles and boom easy money for life.
Unfortunately, it is not that easy. If it were, you would not be reading this email. You would be sitting on a beach, sipping tropical drinks and admiring your 300 foot yacht that is sitting right off the beach sitting right next to my mega yacht. 😉
Stop buying and start selling.
You should not be buying anything unless it is critical to your business RIGHT NOW!!!
If you don’t have your list building machine in motion then you don’t need the newest traffic generating technique. Literally, don’t put the cart before the horse.
No matter how great the sales page sounds or how few copies they say are available.
Do Not Buy Anything you don’t absolutely need today.
You should follow that same advice for anything I send you as well.
I used to get frustrated with people sending me offer after offer but, realized not everyone on their list was at the same stage I was at so some offers were good for me and others weren’t.
I can tell you that I don’t send tons of mail filling your inbox with everything under the sun.
If I am using it, I’ll pass it along. Or if I have used it in the past I will pass that along too.
Also, I don’t send out any of that scammy guru crap either.
I like people who give a condensed product that fixes a particular problem without you or I having to read 100+ pages or watching a bazillion videos to understand it.
Unless those extra pages and videos are filled with step by step screen shots or video that are essential in showing how to implement something. That is ok in my book and appreciated.
I’ll come back to the actual task sequence further on in this post.
For now, I want to dig in a little to your own product development. Don’t do what I did when I first started.
I had purchased an ebook and read through a few pages when this guy, (I don’t remember his name or the ebook), said I needed to create my own product to make any sustainable income online.
I was so new and unaware that I thought he meant I needed to create a product about internet marketing. That was the last sentence I read in that ebook. It didn’t click with me that he meant create a product on a subject that I already knew a lot about. A niche.
I am willing to bet in the next paragraph, had I kept reading, he would have explained that to me. I could of saved years of frustration if only I had kept reading.
Which brings me to a point I would like to share. If you buy anything or go to the trouble of downloading a free report or ebook. Be sure you read the entire thing before you convince yourself it isn’t for you.
Creating Your Own Product
Creating your own product can be as simple as writing an ebook on how to build an awesome sandcastle. If in fact you know how to build awesome sandcastles.
Ask yourself, “What do I know how to do really well?”.
Continue to read but keep this question in your mind. Also be thinking of skills of people you know. You could just as easily write an ebook or create videos of something a friend or acquaintance is skilled at….
Do It Yourself is a huge market and will continue to be that way because people like to save money by building something themselves rather than pay full retail.
Also, if creating a video product scares you because you don’t like being on camera or the fact of being a solo marketer makes it hard to do. Because holding the camera and trying teach someone to do whatever in your niche is hard or you can’t get anyone to help you that are as serious about it as you are….take a look at First Person Video Revolution….it solves many of the problems you face.
Here are some examples to get your brain cranking…
- How to build a Jamaican Grill out of a 55 gallon drum.
- How to make a Jamaican music drum
- How to play those drums
- How to cook ethnic foods
- How to cook your grandmas or mom’s best dishes
- How to lay laminate flooring
- How to build a computer from scratch.
- How to replace a computer hard drive
- How to troubleshoot and repair LCD tv’s
- How to troubleshoot furnace repairs
- How to install a lift kit on a 4×4
It could be anything. You don’t need to worry yourself too much about whether your chosen niche is going to make you hundreds or thousands per month.
You just need to be able to wrap your head around the fact that after you create a product that you can get paid over and over indefinitely.
After you set up your sales funnel online, of course. But we will get to that later.
If you make rustic wooden end tables and sell them in a local store or newspaper. You will only get paid for each end table you make.
But, write an ebook with step by step instructions and pictures or videos of how to make those same rustic end tables. Then sell that ebook or video product unlimited times to DIYer’s and hobbyists…forever!!
Even when you are asleep or on vacation.
I realize most reading this have already been told this many times over. There are those, I am sure, who are fairly new to online marketing and haven’t been enlightened to the true beauty of creating your own ebooks and/or video products to sell.
After you have created your info product or products you can sell them indefinitely on autopilot or damn close to autopilot outside of website maintenance, customer service, etc.
which can be outsourced easy enough after you get the ball rolling and most importantly getting the cash flowing into your bank account.
There are a lot of marketers who say they have outsourced almost everything from the beginning. That takes money and for those who don’t have a lot of it laying around outsourcing will have to wait.
Plus, it is my thinking that you really need to know how everything works so your outsourced workers cannot hold you over a barrel at any point in the future.
But, after you know how the pieces fit together, how they work, and why they work then when possible you can outsource with no worries or very few.
Where Do I Start, What Do I Do First??
First and foremost you need to build your list…NOW! Not next month or when you get more advanced in your skills etc, etc.
Whether you have a niche or are not quite sure what niche you will enter you need a blog. Your blog will be a hub where everything else you do online will be centered. The cornerstone of your online business.
Before we get into the nuts and bolts of each step we need to know the steps.
These steps will give you the motivation to push forward.
It is a real simple plan. Implementing this plan is where many run off the road making it much harder than it needs to be. I did for years until I had it explained to me differently.
The guru’s like to keep you in their funnel rather than giving you all the pieces or they’ll give you a “roadmap” that is much more confusing than the actual process is.
The key is to start slow then ramp it up as you get familiar with the process and feel comfortable expanding on your basic business model.
