Simple Time Management Technique – Amazing Results

If you’re like me, you’ve got so many things to do that you forget half of them. But I’ve got a solution that works great…

Simple Time Management Technique – Amazing Results

I set up daily, weekly and monthly alerts on my phone to remind me to do these things.

For example, once a week I receive a reminder to spend two hours finding new JV partners and affiliates.

This alone has added major revenue to my bottom line.

I set alerts to remind me to do my “to-do” stuff, take my vitamins, get my exercise, check certain websites and so forth.

So here’s how you can most benefit from this technique:

Make a list of all the little things that tend to fall through the cracks.

Pick out the ones that have the most value for you – such as finding new affiliates, new products to promote, new people to interview – your list will vary. These are your priorities and not to be ignored.

Set an alert for each one. Depending on what it is, the alert might be daily, weekly, etc.

Very important: Attach a note to each alert so you know what it is you’re supposed to do. If you’re like me and you don’t attach a note, you won’t have a clue when the chime goes off as to what it means.

Add alerts as you think of new things you should be doing.

After a few weeks of this, I think you’ll be pleasantly shocked at how much more you get done, and how much faster you’re growing your business.

How to Make Quick Mommy Cash (Even if you’re not a mom)

This takes a bit of work but it’s pretty simple and straightforward. And if you position it correctly, it works year round, too.

How to Make Quick Mommy Cash (Even if you’re not a mom)

Become an Amazon affiliate. Now search Amazon for the best toys for kids. It could be for a certain age of kids, or a certain type of toy (like educational) or whatever you choose. If Halloween is coming, you can do the best kids costumes. For Christmas it will be the best presents for kids, and year round it can be the most popular, or educational, or most fun, or whatever criteria you choose.

Build a page with each toy listed. Give each toy a fun description and a good picture.

Under each toy and description, put a “click here for more information” link. This is of course your affiliate link.

Now haunt the mommy forums and sign up with a woman’s name (yes, even if you are a man.) Find the busiest threads, leave comments, and mention where you got some great present ideas for your kids. Give out your link.

I know for a fact his works. You won’t get rich, but you will make some extra money. And you can always outsource the forum comments to someone else to perform for you.

$21,925 from PLR without Selling a Single Copy

I know a fellow who hates selling, can’t write copy, doesn’t have a list, despises doing customer service and just wants to make money.

And make money he does! He’s created a half dozen courses and made a minimum of $8,000 from each one, without ever selling a single copy of any of his courses.

$21,925 from PLR without Selling a Single Copy

So how does he do it?

First, he looks around for someone who will make a great case study. It could be someone selling through Amazon FBA, or a prolific Kindle author, or an online marketer, etc.

He chooses to stay in the broad “make money online” field, but this would work in a lot of niches.

When he finds someone who makes a good case study (IE: They make a lot of money and are willing to tell him how they do it) he sets up an interview. If possible, he does it in person. Otherwise he’ll conduct a series of phone interviews or Skype interviews until he gets all the information he needs.

I’m not sure what his financial relationship is with these experts. In some cases I suspect they’re happy just to tell their story. In other cases I believe he’s offering them a license to the product he’s going to create, for free. Which costs him nothing.

This fellow then puts together a course centered around the case study showing how anyone can duplicate the results.

Then he hires a writer to write the sales letter, squeeze page, ads, emails and so forth, and he hires someone else to handle graphics.

Of course, he could have also hired someone to create the actual course, but he prefers to do that himself.

Once he’s got the course ready to go, he does his research online to find marketers who are selling courses in the same niche. He contacts each one personally, one by one. The personal touch is important here for getting a response.

Next, he gets these marketers on Skype and describes the course to them. He lets them see the entire course so they know what kind of quality it really is, and offers them a license to sell it.

Now mind you, he’s not talking to random would-be marketers off the Warrior Forum. He’s talking to people who have large, responsive lists and are experienced at selling high ticket courses.

He limits the number of licenses he will sell to retain the value.

And his selling price? Depending on the course, it’s somewhere between $497 and $1497 for a one year licensing deal with PLR rights.

If you think this is a lot, you’ve got to realize that an experienced marketer can sell $10,000 – $25,000 worth of a course without too much trouble. They target their list first, let their affiliates take a crack at it and then buy advertising. It’s about as close to a money machine as you can get, so of course these experienced marketers jump at the chance.

And if they don’t, it doesn’t matter because he just calls the next one on his list.

He also lets them know they can renew their license in 12 months, which creates even more profit for him.

Doing some math here… if he charges $997 and sells the license to 25 marketers, that’s nearly $25,000. He’s got expenses for copywriting and graphics, of course, but those are about $3,000, leaving him with $22,000 profit.

Even if he is paying his subject for the rights to use the content, he’s still banking a significant portion of the money, all without selling a single course himself.

And if you’re wondering how long it takes him to sell 25 licenses, after he makes his list of prospects he sets Skype appointments and then gets busy. Usually 3 days is all he needs to sell all 25.

Of course, many of those marketers who purchase a license to one of his products want first dibs on his next product. Thus every time he creates a new product, he’s got more and more marketers who jump at the chance to get a license.

This is truly a win-win. He doesn’t have to deal with selling courses, customer service and all the other things he doesn’t like. His clients – the marketers – enjoy a great profit with almost no work. And he profits mightily.

Oh yeah, he does this once a month. Admittedly, he could do it 2 or 3 times a month, but he’s kind of lazy and says one a month is plenty.

THE Secret to Making Money Online?

If someone were to ask you what the #1 ‘secret’ to making money online was, what would you say?

THE Secret to Making Money Online?

Any guesses?

Maybe you’d say it’s to find a starving crowd. Or to build and nurture a list. Or to get in on the beginning of a hot new trend.

All of these are good answers.

And all of these are wrong.

THE big secret to making money online is one that crosses all niches, applies to all markets and marketers, and works just about every single time to make REAL money.

It’s how six and seven figure incomes are almost always earned.

And it’s also how YOU can begin earning 6 figures in the next 12 months.

Now then – before I reveal this ‘secret,’ let me warn you that you might have heard it before.

In fact, some online marketers have to hear this a dozen times or more before it really starts to sink in.

That’s because the most powerful techniques often masquerade as something a bit boring. Or tedious. Or uninteresting.

After all, taking a wheelbarrow full of cash to the bank is exciting.

Earning it is often something altogether different.

Ready?

Here’s the ‘secret…’

“Find a profitable formula – and then SCALE it up.”

Yup. That’s it. Pretty simple, I know.

Yet 98% of marketers will never do it. And 97% of marketers will stay broke because of it.

Let’s say you spend time making the perfect product for a super hungry niche. You tweak the offer to get it converting sky high. You bring on affiliates to help you promote. Everything is in place. You launch, you have an extremely profitable week…

…and then what?

For most marketers, they will turn their attention to creating the next product and doing the entire process again.

And because of that, they will leave a tremendous amount of money on the table.

If your offer sells for $19 and you’re converting at 5%, then you’re making $95 for every 100 people you send to your site.

This doesn’t even include the list you’re building and will market to over and over again.

Now then, if you can buy those 100 visitors for $40, you’ve just made a profit of $55.

Buy 1,000 visitors and you’ve made $550.

Buy 10,000 visitors and you’ve made $5,500.

But wait, there’s more!

What if you add a backend product? Just one sale per 100 visitors of a $100 product increases your profit from $55 to $155.

10,000 visitors? $15,500 profit.

You can also add coaching, continuity (membership) programs, etc. for even more profit.

Are you following me here?

Let’s use an analogy: Someone invests 3 months to open a hair salon. They have a big grand opening with lots of customers. And when that dies down, they close shop, move across town and do it all over again.

Yeah, that would be pretty crazy.

Yet that’s what 98% of online marketers do.

They create a product, launch it, have a great week and then start all over again.

And they wonder why they are still struggling.

So what’s the takeaway?

  • Invest time in building a profitable, high-converting funnel.
  • Test it out and do the math – how much can you spend on advertising and still make money?
  • Start by investing small and ramp your way up.
  • Don’t forget to build your list – your funnel is your upfront money, and your list is your “go to” money. That is, whenever you need funds or simply want to boost your income, you can go to your list and make them an offer.

What will derail you in this process:

  • Getting lured away by the glamour of creating another new product funnel when you should be scaling up the one you already have.
  • Fear of spending money to make money. Yes, spending $1,000 or more to make sales is scary. That’s why you want to start small, make sure your entire funnel is working, and then scale up. And up. And Up.
  • Your biggest mistake – would be brushing this advice off.

Fortunes have been made simply by creating a profitable funnel and then scaling it up.

FORTUNES.

As in nearly 7 figures made from one ClickBank product…

Per MONTH.

That’s right – 6 Pack Abs at the pinnacle of its success was earning over $11 million per year.

Your results will vary.

Offline Marketing – How to Sell $5,000+ a Month Using a Menu and “The 21 Day Trick

Are you doing offline marketing, or would you like a second income in the offline world?

Offline Marketing – How to Sell $5,000+ a Month Using a Menu and “The 21 Day Trick

Here’s how to make it drop dead simple and super profitable:

First, build a simple website with a menu card on it. Not the kind of menu you find in a restaurant, of course, but it can look like that if you choose.

Your menu is going to offer all kinds of services to brick and mortar businesses.

For example:

  • Local SEO
  • Creating lead capture pages and setting up their autoresponder
  • Website creation
  • Writing blog posts and articles for them
  • Repairing their online reputation
  • Creating a professional looking video
  • Creating detailed reports on their competitors
  • Doing social media (this can be a wide variety of offerings)
  • And so forth

Give them different prices – some low and some higher, to give business owners plenty of choices.

Now here’s the 21 day trick – through testing, we’ve found that you will actually sell MORE services when you extend the date by which you’ll have the services completed.

Naturally you can do many of these things in 2-5 days.

But if the client believes you’re working on it for 3 weeks, or even a whole month, the perceived value is much higher and you will sell more.

Yes, human nature is a funny thing, isn’t it?

Now then, before you panic and think you can’t provide all these services, realize that all you need is to visit Fiverr.com.

There you’ll find people who can do all of these things for you, for cheap. You will need to pay more than $5 for most of these, but that’s okay because your profit margins will still remain sky high.

Typically, you’ll pay $5 to test the gig out, and then somewhere between $50 and perhaps as high as $200 to get your job done.

Meanwhile, you’re selling services for $300 to $1,000, depending how much work it involves.

You are the ‘middle man or woman’ getting the orders and then having them fulfilled.

So how do you get the clients?

All of the usual methods can apply, of course. Also, LinkedIn and Craigslist can be great places to get clients with a little practice.

Also look at potential client’s social profiles and websites to get an idea of what they might need, and then contact them directly via email or even phone.

And if you’re ready to take it to the next level, you can also put together a mailer that incorporates your menu and send it to likely prospects.

This is perhaps one of the easiest businesses you can start and almost immediately begin making money. Because you are outsourcing all of the work, you can focus solely on getting clients, making them happy and gaining repeat sales.

And by the way – once you choose a method for client acquisition, you can outsource that as well.

Then your only job will be to send orders to your outsourcers and send the completed work to your clients.

Not a lot of work for a $5,000 or more a month income.

Are You Entering A Niche In Which You Have ZERO Experience?

Good. Actually, great! Here’s what you do…

Are You Entering A Niche In Which You Have ZERO Experience?

Start a blog. From day 1, explain that you know nothing about (your new topic, such as cooking) but you’re on a quest to learn (a specific outcome or goal, like how to make the world’s best pancakes) and invite the reader to make the journey with you.

Now start reading about your topic. A lot. Buy and use the products in your niche. Write about what you learn, and tell about your experience with the products. Recommend the good ones.

Once you’ve got a dozen or more blog posts, start asking experts in the niche for interviews. If you’re too shy or nervous at first, you can start with email interviews and work your way up to audio interviews.

You become the researcher / reporter, and you let the experts handle the heaving lifting.

In 1-5 years? Now YOU’RE the expert. And you never had to lie about knowing stuff you didn’t know when you got started.

In fact, you got to be honest, truthful and yourself the entire time. And you’ve built a tremendous rapport with your audience who very much feel you’re just like them.

When you use this formula, your readers will trust you and they’ll act on your advice, whether that’s to buy an affiliate product you recommend, buy your own products or eventually let you coach them.

Why NOW is a Great Time to Start a Blog

Blogs are going under faster than you can count.

Yet more and more people are reading blog posts, watching vlogs and so forth.

Why NOW is a Great Time to Start a Blog

So what’s happening?

Previously, a person could monetize a blog with Adsense or other ads.

But more and more people are using ad blockers, which means less and less income for bloggers using this monetization method.

And because they don’t have another way to make money from their blog, they quit blogging.

Enter YOU.

Because you know how to monetize a blog without ads – by promoting great products to your readers and subscribers.

Choose a niche that has lots of hungry people eager to spend money, and start blogging.

It might take some time to get good at it.

And it might take some work to get your traffic numbers up.

But if you choose your niche wisely and persevere, you’ll find this is perhaps the best time in the history of the internet to be a blogger.

Best Blogging Advice – Ever

I saw a great piece of advice on Quora the other day about blogging.

Best Blogging Advice - Ever

Someone wrote in and asked if they had missed the blogging boat – could they start now, or were they too late?

They received all kinds of advice, but this tidbit from Jeff Sauer was the best:

First Jeff advises him to take action immediately and get a free blog on WordPress.

Then Jeff says…

“Write a post.”

“Write another.”

“Write 50 more posts.”

“Then delete the blog.”

“You will no longer be concerned about starting a blog. Instead, you will have an understanding of the commitment ahead.”

Jeff then advises to start a new blog on a domain name the blogger will own forever. Take note of mistakes made on the previous blog, and don’t make them again.

Now write 100 more posts.

And eventually you will become a good writer.

Now then…

You might be wondering WHY I like this advice so much, and here’s the reason:

It’s telling the reader to DO something, over and over and over again until they get GOOD at it.

And it’s showing the reader how to overcome fear by simply doing, and doing again.

Will it take you 150 posts to get good at blogging?

Probably not.

But if you’re willing to make that kind of commitment, then it’s just a matter of time and practice before you become truly great at what you’re doing.

So go ahead. Create a throw-away blog just for practice. Use a pen name.

Write for the sake of writing.

And each time you strike gold, sharpen and refine the post, and put it on your public blog.

People might think you’re an overnight success.

But you and I will know it was simply a matter of practice, practice and practice.

Because that’s how you reach success – through dedication and unwavering perseverance.

How to Have FUN with Online Marketing

Okay, so you’ve hopefully got your core business online, or you’re about to put one online. You have it up and running, making money…

How to Have FUN with Online Marketing

…now what?

First things first – figure out how to make MORE money in the business you already have.

How do you get more customers?

How do you sell those customers more stuff?

And how can you charge more for what you sell?

This is basic and should always be your focus. The more value you give, the more money you typically make. Give more value and you can charge more and sell more.

But what about the ‘fun’ part?

That’s a matter of trying stuff out.

Buy new stuff on Warrior and JVZoo. Read the case studies. See the new techniques someone’s dreamt up.

Pick and choose stuff to try and then just try it.

Don’t devote a week to it – it might not work.

But devote a day or two and see what results you get.

That new thing that everyone is doing? Pick a topic (or whatever needs choosing) and outsource it. Or if you can do it yourself in a day, go for it.

Is it promising? Keep going.

Does it look like a loser? Good – you just found something that doesn’t work for you.

Either way, if you always look at it as experimenting, as having fun, as trying new stuff and seeing what happens, then you’ll never take it too seriously.

You won’t get stressed. You won’t bang your head against the desk when you realize the last 24 hours taught you nothing more than how NOT to do something.

Because you’re having fun.

And when you do strike on a winner, sha-ZAM!

Rinse and repeat and you’ve got another money making avenue in your online business.

How to Open Entirely New Markets for Your Products

Smart marketers are not limiting themselves to the English market.

How to Open Entirely New Markets for Your Products

Instead, they are taking their best selling products and getting those products and the associated product funnels translated over to French, Italian, Spanish, etc.

Here’s how to do it:

Unless you’re really sure you want to invest the money, do NOT go with a professional translation service because the cost will be too prohibitive. Not to mention their translations can be too dry and boring to be effective, especially on the sales material.

Instead, find someone on Upwork or Fiverr who is fluent both in English and the language you’re translating your work into.

They must be fluent enough to thoroughly know the slang and colloquialisms of that language.

Have them translate the product, the sales letter, the emails, the squeeze page, etc.

Also have them translate a month’s worth of PPC ads to bring in new subscribers to your funnel. You’ll want a month’s worth because it can take you that long to test and tweak your ad campaigns.

Then retain that person with a small monthly fee to handle all customer support emails for you.

Rinse and repeat with another language.

No Products of Your Own? No Problem…

Negotiate with product owners for the rights to sell their products in other languages. You might pay them a flat fee, or a percentage of sales after your initial expenses are recovered.

You could build an entire business doing this one thing – getting licensing rights to popular products and translating them to various languages.

And if you’re fluent in another language, then you don’t even need to hire a translator if you’re willing to do the translation yourself.
