Have you heard of it?
I’ll tell you, it’s a VERY POWERFUL GAME!!
Home business owners who have played this game have generated thousands and hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue as a result, PURELY from playing this game.
Here’s the rules of the game so you can play it too:
First, pick a 90 day window to play. Preferably the earlier you can start, the better.
Next, pick a number of dollars that you’d like to earn within that 90 day window.
But here’s the kicker. This number needs to be audacious!
Make it something you can achieve, but also make it a number that would absolutely thrill you if you hit it.
Now after this, and this is the most important part, take that number and triple it.
So if you’re goal is to make $50,000 in the next three months, then now that number would be $150,000. (I’ll explain this in a second.)
Next, draw a picture on a piece of paper or poster board that represents your journey to your money goal.
Put on there things you’d do with some of this money. Put pictures there of where you’d travel, what you’d buy, and so forth.
This will allow you to track your progress because as you do this next step, you’ll color in or chart your results on this board. (Tracking is critical!)
Now to the most important part…
Don’t make it about the money -AT ALL!
You’ll notice that we tripled the amount of money.
That’s what you want to focus on. That 3X amount will be the amount of proposals, offers, or the opportunities that you’ll want to make within this time frame.
So if you get on the phone and ask for a $2,000 sale, then you’ve just made $2,000 in proposal money and can mark it on your board!
The more personal and the more 1-on-1 conversations that you can have to make offers, the more powerful this will be, but you decide what you’ll count as an offer, proposal etc…
Again, many people have played this game, without making hardly any money before, and have went out there making BOLD proposals, adding value to their world…
…And they’ve collectively brought in many millions.
Now it’s your turn.
All you have to do is decide to play and to play big.
One caveat though.
If you’re making offers at just $47, $97, $197 a pop, it will take you a looooong time to make your number of proposals and hit your actual cash goal.
If it doesn’t, then you’re not playing big enough.
The key is in making BIG proposals, big offers…
Asking for $2k, $9K, $15k and so forth…
What I’m saying is you need to offer High Ticket Offers during this game to thrive and do well with it. (And really in this whole online business.)
No worries though, I’ve got you covered.
Actually, most of the high ticket “”selling”” will be done FOR YOU, if you choose.
However, this will be the perfect system to play the money game with.
Play big, be bold, make some waves.
Have a massive day,
The strategy ironically, is the title of his book Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook.
What does the title mean for us?
Well, basically the Right Hook is the knockout punch. It’s the thing that makes money. It’s the thing that converts leads to sales.
Most people run their business online with just throwing the knockout punches.
They’re aiming for the one big knockout punch, every time.
You see this happen, when right from the very beginning, a person or business tries to sell to you.
It’s all buy, buy, buy now!!
But nothing else.
You can “tell” that they don’t really care about you one bit. You’re just a dollar bill to them.
Just like a real fight, online business it’s not just all about the knockout punch. It’s really about all of the little “”strategic”” punches leading up to that one big punch that seals the deal.
It’s all about the jabs.
Jabs mean adding value to your customers.
It’s building relationships with them, sometimes one on one. A jab is engaging with your audience.
It’s about heartfelt service!!
And, it means you can’t be so greedy and be just about the sale.
You think about people first, you add tremendous value to their lives, and then, “if” it’s a fit, you make the sale.
Most often, if you do it right at this point, the sale will come NATURALLY.
No closing “skills” required.
As you run your online business, remember the title of the book, as it can serve you well.
3 jabs, one right hook.
Value, value, value, then ask for the sale…
Do this, at a MINIMUM, and you’ll fair well.
This system give you very high profit margins, which will in return allow you help others, help yourself, and have an incredible life.
Entrepreneurs on the other hand do what’s important. They market, they innovate, they test, test, test and track, track, track.
As a result, entrepreneurs make money, and lots of it. Wantrepreneurs get made fun of by their j-o-b friends, and they make little to no money.
Which are you?
Are you focusing on the right stuff?
Or, are you dabbling in all the crap that just. doesn’t. matter?!
Here’s the interesting thing…
It doesn’t take much more effort to actually BE an entrepreneur, rather than just ACTING like one!
And, it’s waaaaay less frustrating!!
Also, the profit potential of doing over acting, or, “thinking” about doing, is infinitely higher.
Sure, fear of failure creeps in, and that stops some.
Okay, well, did you know that most of the successful people out there have failed countless times, and fail DAILY in their online home business?
So the key then is to get used to fear, and to get used to failure. Because they’re both here. And they both are part of the game to success.
That’s a lot better than not failing, and remaining stagnant in business and life, right?
Want to step into the role of a REAL ENTREPRENEUR?
Then don’t “think” about doing it.
Take action, make mistakes and quickly course correct, and then do it again. But this time, your mistakes will be higher quality mistakes.
You’ll be up a rung further on the ladder to success.
That’s right, lots of mistakes, testing, and perfecting have went in to this particular online home business model already.
So sure, you’ll still have things to learn and won’t run the “perfect” business right from the start.
And if you need any help, just reach out to me and let me know. I’ll help how I can or will point you in the right direction, cool?
-Herbert Simon, Economist, winner of the Nobel Prize in Economics
It’s no secret. Our mental clarity is under attack!
We’re being bombarded daily by email, social media, 24/7 news, work responsibilities, family obligations, and a billion other things pulling for our attention.
For many, they don’t even realize that clarity exist anymore. They don’t even think about it. They’ve become used to the craziness. Immune to it all.
They accept it.
That’s a sad thing.
Because having clarity, is ESSENTIAL!
Especially is this the case in running an online home based business.
Having a clear mind and vision is THE SECRET to productivity, to reduced stress, and to financial freedom.
If you feel that you’re running in a hamster wheel lately, then you must stop, take a look at what you’re doing and “why” you are doing it.
And then, you have to commit to CHANGE.
There are a lot of things that you can do which will allow you to regain your clarity.
Emptying your head onto a notepad regularly can help. Getting all of those things in your mind onto paper.
You can learn to live in the moment. You can set boundaries around your time and eliminate needless activities. (Surfing the web, FB, email, etc.)
And here’s a big one, especially if you want to make a fantastic income with your online home business:
Make your online home business MUNDANE.
What do I mean by that? Do I mean that you should make your business boring?
No, not at all!
What I’m saying is you need to make your daily agenda, your online to-do’s, as mundane and regular as much as you possibly can.
Where when you sit down each morning, or afternoon, or night, whatever time you’ve set aside for this business, you know EXACTLY what you need to be doing.
If you don’t do this? Then likely, you’ll get online, and clutter will overtake your clarity.
Without a clear plan of attack, you won’t have the confidence you’ll need in order to take action and succeed.
So you’ll wind up checking out launches, reading through a few pages of a PDF you’ve bought, and looking at interesting stuff on the marketing forums.
Then, you’ll go to bed frustrated. Knowing you didn’t take yourself any closer towards your goals, yet another day.
My friend, it all starts with getting clarity, and control over your mind.
It’s designed to take ANYBODY, of ANY experience level, and take them straight from ground zero, to lucrative profits in no time flat.
Just follow the easy steps you’ll be provided, keep your mind clear the best you can, and you WILL SUCCEED!
It’s happening over and over again with this incredible little twenty-one step system.
It’s a deadly disease.
One that MANY people are plagued with -yet, by choice!
Listen, we all have most of the same opportunities put in front of us don’t we?
Opportunities to make money, to get in shape, to change our life for the better in some way.
However, many come across an opportunity, and they quickly follow up with the word “IF”.
“IF only the timing was better…”
“IF things were different for me…”
“IF I had more money for this…”
“IF I was lucky like others…”
“IF I had more resources at my disposal…”
“IF this person hadn’t done me wrong…”
“IF I had more time…”
“IF the economy wasn’t so rotten right now…”
“IF my parent’s would have [insert a dozen different things…””
And on the list could go…
And right away here, you see that these people have become a victim of their ifs.
A friend and successful online home businessman recently told me that most people’s “IF” statements could be bundled up into one. big. excuse.
“If only my circumstances were different.”
Now, this is a TRICKY ONE…
Because some of the circumstances we have were not brought upon us by ourselves.
Some of us were BORN in bad circumstances.
We didn’t ASK for them.
Although it may not be our fault where we’re at right now, it does not mean that we have to stay in that situation.
And that’s a big realization we have to make.
Your current situation and circumstance is NOT PERMANENT!
Don’t believe that for one second. (Most people live their whole life there.)
However, YOU are the only one that can/will get yourself out of your current situation.
Waiting around for things to change by its pretty little self is folly.
You MUST change your thoughts, which will alter your decisions, which then will influence your actions.
So your decisions may not have put you in the situation that you may be in right now, but you better believe that your decisions can get you out of it!
Most people are ATTACHED to their excuses. They use them as a massive crutch to remain in their comfort zone.
The status quo.
Don’t let that be you.
Stand up for yourself and your dreams and goals.
You CAN do it.
P.S. If you’ve been using any of this “”IF”” excuses in starting up your online home based business, decide now to do something about it.
…As there will be very little excuses for you to actually have!
Tons of case studies of other successful students from all walks of life. And a complete system, A-Z on what you need to do, sell, and grow your online home business with.
P.P.S. Have a great day!!
And rightly so!
If you make simple, small changes to your subject lines, it could result in double the open rates or higher.
Which then could result in twice the profits PER EMAIL that you send out.
Depending on the size of your list, just from testing, tweaking, and using the highest converting subject lines, you could experience four, all the way up to seven figure cash windfalls.
And that’s why it’s such a big deal.
Big bucks being added to your pockets, with little extra work involved.
Now there are some basic tips that will help you out.
*Use attention-grabbing subject lines.
*Look at what 90% of the subject lines in your ideal customer’s inbox are, and then write the exact opposite.
*Don’t try to trick or fool your list to open. (That’s a quick way to lose trust and the sale!)
*Tell directly what’s inside each email.
*Use numbers and other symbols in occasional emails. (5 Ways to… 3 Secrets to… The #1 way to…)
*And so forth…
There are a lot of ways to increase your email open rates, and my best advice is to spend a few hours researching and learning, and then just get out there and start split-testing one subject line against another.
However, I want to tell you about something even more important than the subject line.
MUCH MORE IMPORTANT.
Subject lines pale in comparison to this.
What is it?
The NAME FIELD.
To be more specific, YOUR name.
Think about it, likely, there are emails you get from a specific person or company, and no matter what the subject line is, their name grabs your attention and you open whatever they email you.
THAT’S what you want.
They have the ole’ “KLT Factor” going on.
They’re someone you Know, Like, and Trust.
You must become someone that people know, like, and trust as well.
That’s 10X more important than any creative subject line that you can conjure up.
You want people excited to open your emails. Like it’s the highlight of their day.
And with just a little extra thought into your emails, you can very easily do this. ANYONE can.
Here’s a few quick tips:
Be vulnerable in your emails, don’t try to be perfect or like some “ideal” fake person.
Speak from your unique voice, something nobody else has but YOU.
Add constant value ALL THE TIME, without having some hidden agenda or always expecting something back in return.
Share personal stories, moments in your life, shoot video, share pictures, and let them see your face etc…
Just a few of these things implemented here will get ya going down the right track and will bring you nice results.
Also, take a bit of time to think about the people whose emails you LOVE to open.
Ask yourself “Why?”
Why do you love their emails?
Was it something specific they do?
Are they entertaining, or always giving you value?
Find out what it is, and see where you can manufacture something similar into your marketing.
Alright, that’s it for the day!
I hope you’ve got a few golden nuggets here in this email.
P.S. Of course, writing emails is of NO benefit, if your online business isn’t profitable or if you don’t have something incredible and evergreen to sell to your list.
P.P.S. Remember, ACTION is the mother of all skill. Try a few things out in this post, and you’ll see something really special happen in your Internet marketing business and life. I Promise. =)
Under the Chick-fil-A logo read these words:
CLOSED ON SUNDAYS
And I thought to myself, “”Is this greatly limiting their profits?””
I think the argument could go both ways. One could venture to say that more people would come if they were open on Sundays, like most other fast-food joints.
Another could argue that they’re bringing in MORE profits because they have values and won’t sacrifice their employees well-being for the sake of the extra profits they could bring in.
Either way, I love what they’re doing. Even if it’s costing them profits.
It’s not ALL about the money. Sucking every last drop of profit that you can. Some people are like this online and in the Internet Marketing Business space.
They’ll never be happy. They hit 5 figures, 6 figures, 7 figures and beyond. And they still want more and they’ll do ANYTHING for it.
They’ll sacrifice their own values. Their families. Their health. And so on…
Don’t let their issues become your issues, coolio?
Hold true to your boundaries, your standards, your values, and don’t let anyone impose upon that, even if it means you sacrificing a few bucks here and there.
It’ll be well worth sticking to your guns and doing what you know is right.
Just one note though. I’m NOT saying that you shouldn’t get out of your comfort zone. Far from it.
You MUST get out of your comfort zone in order to grow and expand your income and happiness.
What I’m saying is stick to your values.
Chick-fil-A stays closed on Sunday so its employees can have the day off, and if they choose, will have the time to go to some religious service.
That’s their standard.
For you, maybe it’s not sacrificing family time for this business. Not traveling without the family. Not lying or doing anything dishonest, misleading, or unethical just to make a quick buck.
Whatever your standard is. Hold it as dear and precious and don’t like some web-geek guru persuade you away from it.
A lot of these guys aren’t near as happy in real life as they “”appear”” to be.
It’s a simple Internet Marketing Business to run. It’s on the up-and-upon everything. And the way it’s structured, you can earn high ticket commissions from $1k, $3k, $5k and even much more…
It’s built around YOU. Your values. Your lifestyle.
This means you don’t have to sacrifice on what’s important to you or on other time commitments you may have.
This is because this is a VERY profitable, easy, and highly leveraged Internet Marketing Business to run.
The type of business a person like you and I can do and are still able sleep like a baby at night.
Have a nice one,
Email is the best, let me repeat, the BEST way to generate a steady income online -coupled with the right products you’re selling and promoting of course.
So, it’s something that you want to get right. Right?
Thing is, most people think getting email right is by becoming a literary guild member that has pretty, “”grammatically correct”” emails…
They become bonafide members of the Spell-check Nazi Club, like that’s going to put money in their pockets.
And I get these emails from time to time. Subscribers pointing out to me where I’ve missed some comma or something like that.
Some other error which often, is NOT an error in email etiquette. Often it’s something I’ve put there intentionally that they’ve ever so graciously brought to my attention.
But here’s the thing, while they’re stressing over periods and commas, I’m making money.
Because that’s not what makes the money in this industry. Some of the top email marketers and online home business owners out there can barely spell their names for
They’re making 6-7 figures, not for their spelling skills, but for the “”specific way”” in which they write, and I’ll share that with you in just a sec.
Now as a quick caveat, I’m not saying that you shouldn’t write well, or that you don’t need to worry about spending a few extra minutes to proof your emails before you send them out.
If you want to do that, in most cases that’s fine.
What I’m saying is that you need to focus on what’s important. On what brings home the bacon.
What’s that which we should focus on, you say?
Writing in a CONVERSATIONAL tone.
That’s the most important thing, by far.
Writing like people talk in a conversation.
So things like this are game in email: (Talking in bold to MAKE A POINT. Using “”…”” to keep people reading…
Using multiple exclamations if you want to scream!!! Using very short sentences to drive. something. home.
Using all kinds of odd slang and words strung together that would make your English Teacher cringe.
All in the name of writing like you talk and getting your emails out there to the world, daily if at all possible.
Don’t sweat any of the other stuff. We’re talking in an authentic way to our tribe and connecting with them.
We’re not trying to win the Pulitzer Prize here.
Did you know that many of the worlds top copywriters, working for 7-9 figure brands, even PURPOSELY will go through and ADD errors to their emails and sales letters?
Because it increases conversions. They get more sales as a result!!!
Turns out it makes their copy more authentic. More human. Almost like talking one on one to a person.
Kinda like what ‘ye olde emails are for.
You can take this email, straight to the bank.
I challenge you, write an email a day for the next 30 days to your list. Be authentic, tell stories, speak conversational, and have a few irresistible offers sprinkled in there that will really help ‘em.
And if you don’t have a list, that’s not the point. Get into the habit of writing conversational email daily. It’s a skill that will change your life.
Besides, you can throw a couple bucks at a few solo ads, get some traffic from FB or a host of other places, and have a fast growing list as soon as you decide to take this seriously.
We all start at Subscriber #0.
What’s important is that you START.
To your journey,
What this does is it activates the “”smart”” part of your brain and allows you to use your intelligence over the impulse of your senses.
This is so critical to your online home business success.
Here’s why. There are way too many easy decisions that we can make online. And they are very easy for us to justify ourselves in doing them.
Buying course after course, even if we haven’t went through the previous 50 we purchased.
Going to FB compulsively, knowing we’ll waste hours of our time once we’re there.
Checking our email account, which will bring us to blogs, forums, and a host of product launches and affiliates begging for our attention.
To the untrained brain, we’ll go crazy, will get nothing done, and will give in to impulse after impulse.
We’ll do this to the point where we’re so over-whelmed that we get frustrated and give up.
Often we’ll just blame this industry as bogus and a scam.
We’ll blame all the marketers we allowed to steal our most valuable asset, our time.
When most often it’s “”us”” that failed the online home business. It was us that failed to focus in and take any real action.
So, it’s easy, and it’s not easy at the same time…
Engage the stop and think mechanism.
Whenever you’re about to do something other than what you’ve set out to do, whenever you’re about to make a purchase, whenever you feel the urge…
Stop and think:
“”Do I really need this?””
“”Is this taking me further or closer to my goals?””
“”Why do I feel the urge to buy or do this?””
And so on…
Ask yourself whatever questions you need to in order to get your senses and impulses under control.
Decide to buy or do with your brain and intelligence that you no doubt have, not with your senses and impulses of the moment.
I never rush people to join in my online home business. I WANT them to take their time and make an educated decision.
I LIKE it when they ask me questions and express their concerns with me.
Do I lose a few sales this way? Who knows. But when people join with me, they join because they’ve made a smart decision, not off of some impulse.
And that makes them much more serious buyers. Buyers that will act and do and succeed. And ‘dem are the type of buyers and peers I want to attract.
And please, let me know if you have any questions or if I can help in ANY way.
80% of your results will come from 20% of your efforts. You can apply this rule universally and its accuracy is near uncanny.
Well today, I’d like to introduce you to a principle you’ve probably never heard of before.
Yet, it may be just as -if not more- powerful than the 80/20 rule.
The 100-Zero Concept.
Adopt this principle to your home business and life, and you’ll begin to see some amazing things happen.
Here’s the gist of it. It’s fundamental concept is that you will give 100%. All of the time, every time. 100%.
But here’s the thing…
You’ll do this, even if you’re getting ZERO percent back in return.
That’s the part where it may get hairy for some of us.
But it’s necessary.
And here’s the interesting thing. Just because someone is giving zero percent, it doesn’t mean they’re giving zero percent. They may be giving 100% too!
What do I mean?
I recently heard Brian Kurtz of BoardRoom explain it well.
We’ve all got friends. Some of them go way back to our childhood or school days.
These folks we just LOVE.
We’ve all got workmates too. Or, friends in our local area right now that we enjoy doing things with.
Now here’s my point. Usually, there are just 1-2 of these people that like to, or will put things together.
To plan a party, a reunion, to go out on the town. You can just count on that they will be the ones that will do this.
Everybody else may “”think”” about it. But they just never get around to it. Maybe they don’t have the forthrightness or confidence to do it.
So, it looks at the surface that one person is giving 100% and that the other people don’t care and are giving 0%.
However, when you get with your friends etc., you all have a blast. The time of your life!
The person that gave a hundred, and the person that gave zero are BOTH having a good time.
Which person do you want to be?
I hope you’re a Hundred per-center.
They’re the movers and shakers of the world.
The people that make things happen.
In business, in life, even if you don’t see the immediate payoff, even if it doesn’t seem fair that YOU are the one always doing things…
With your family, with your friends, and with your work.
It’ll always work out for your benefit and that of others.
Now get out there and make things happen!
Call that person that you’ve been waiting to call you, start that home business that you’ve been waiting on someone else to hand to you in a pretty little gift wrapped box.
Put in 100% like you’ve never done before. Your absolute best.
You’ll thank me later.
Put 100% in this, and if you’re like the other peeps in this course, you can do very, VERY WELL.
If you’re prepared to do 0%, then of course, don’t be expecting any results. But I know you’re a 100% type of person.
I’m sure you’ve seen it before.
In fact, many internet marketers are still heavily using it.
It’s origins comes more from the direct-mail world of advertising.
A marketer would sell a product, and then add a LOT of extra content or bonuses to it to bulk it up.
So if you bought a DVD recording of a marketing event, not only would you get the DVDs, but you’d also get CD recordings. You’d get printed out manuscripts to read.
They’d send you bonus interviews of the speakers on cd. You’d get books from a speaker or two thrown in.
And by the time it’s all said and done, you’d have a box full of about 45 pounds of stuff!
Imagine, you hear a knock on the door, you open it up, and there the mailman stands with your package.
You sign and pick up the box. It’s HEAVY! You open it up excitedly, holding all of the content in your arms, amazed at how much there is, and then…
You drop it on your table.
That’s… Thud Marketing.
Online this is done digitally as well.
Again, we’ve all seen it. Tons of PLR content you’ll never use, 50 ebooks you’ll never read, and whatever else the marketer can conjure up to give you, he will.
The purpose is mainly for you to get the “”feeling”” that you just got waaaaaay more value than what you paid.
Today the market is much more sophisticated, and for the most part, this type of marketing is very ineffective.
Right now people have “”too much”” on their hands as it is. They don’t want another 20 gigabytes of crap to have to go through!
We’re all overwhelmed.
Truly, less is more.
What they want is relevance.
That want what they NEED.
Nothing less, nothing more.
If you can get your message across in a 15 page document. Do that.
Don’t beef it up with another 200 hundred pages of fluff and filler and crap bonuses.
If you have something that works, and that people want, that’s all you need. Nothing more.
Though there is a decent bit of content there, it’s really just 21 simple steps. VERY easy to go through,
And what’s more important is that you’re given EXACTLY what you need.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Most of the world go to their jobs each day. They get there and they know exactly what to do.
It’s not rocket science (unless they’re rocket scientists!) or too hard for them to do.
This business is no different. It’s not too difficult for you to learn.
No, in fact, it’s easy.
You just need to learn the basics and get the right system to follow.
Have a great day,
Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the man’s brilliant.
He’s taken a common item like a Hamburger, and completely dominated and revolutionized the industry.
And one of the ways he’s done this is by being an Entertainer. A Showman of sorts.
He was NOT an educator on why his business was the best. And I think we’d all agree, Mickey D’s food isn’t really that great.
Too many people though hop online and learn something, and then they try to become an educator.
Teachers are some of the lowest paid people out there. Do you want to be the lowest paid internet marketer out there?
If not, then peep up those ears.
Teaching is great. Providing amazing value to your customer base and leads is awesome and essential to your long term success.
However, that alone is not enough.
You also have to entertain.
Entertainers are the HIGHEST PAID PEOPLE ON EARTH!
Think Dr. Phil is the best psychiatrist in the world? Nope, not by far.
Yet, he’s one of the most entertaining of them all, and thus one of the highest paid.
Same thing with Dr. Oz, Oprah, Lady Gaga, Brad Pitt and so forth…
They’re incredible entertainers, and they all make exorbitant incomes.
Take whatever business you’re building up online right now, and then look at how you’re marketing, selling, and teaching.
Are you entertaining enough?
Teaching AND Entertaining, can form together into a little something I like to call Entertraining.
Now, there are several ways that you can do this. But the best way is to inject YOUR PERSONALITY into your internet marketing and business.
Do this and you’ll attract a tribe of like-minded peeps that are drawn to you like moths to a flame.
Next, you want to make sure you are indeed HIGHLY PAID for this.
Brad Pitt won’t do a movie for under $30-$40 mil. – unless he wants to. And you shouldn’t work for cheap either.
If you’re just breaking even or making a few bucks here and there per sale, then it’s all a little pointless then, right?
Having Top Tier offers in your business puts you in the bracket that will allow you the profits and time to build a lucrative, entertrainment business that can provide you and your family with an incredible lifestyle for years to come.
Another notable said “”Luck is the dividend of sweat. The more you sweat, the luckier you get!””
With that said, how lucky would you say you are?
Have you sweated enough online to get the results you desire? In order to get… “”lucky””?
Now, you can sweat and still not get ideal results. A chubby guy can run a mile and burn a ton of calories and do all the right things.
However, if he leaves the track and heads straight to McDonald’s?
Well, all that sweat has now been for nothing. Back to square one he goes.
Same thing with the online home business.
You may be working on the wrong things. You may even be sweating away on the RIGHT THINGS.
For instance, finding the right business model to work in.
You may do all of the research, maybe even test the waters by purchasing a few lower-end products in that market or company.
But if you’ve arrived at that opportunity of a lifetime, and you’re now at the right place at the right time, and you don’t DO something about it?
Then all that sweat is for nigh.
Massive action, continuous work and sweat towards your desired goal, is the great equalizer of success.
So if you want to get lucky in this business, you’ve gotta start sweatin’ like Richard Simmons dancing to the oldies.
P.S. If you’ve not checked out the 21 step mttb system, I’d advice you to. It is the opportunity of a lifetime that we just spoke about. All it requires is a little bit of sweat equity and focus.
I really like that quote. And you can take it to the bank, coming from a guy whose company has made billions and even lost over 5 billion in just one year.
He knew that success simply comes from a LOT of failures. Some big. Some small.
Failing isn’t natural for most of us though.
We were taught at school to take grades and pass. If we didn’t get the right grade, we failed.
And if we brought a report card home that had a big red F+ on it, we felt like we failed our parents.
Failing wasn’t something we were ever encouraged to do.
It’s something that we have to learn to get over though, because in reality?
Failing isn’t failing.
Failing is succeeding!
Doing nothing is the only way you’ll lose here.
Something that I like to do is to ask myself, “”What’s the worst that can happen?””
Seriously, when you’re fighting doing something that you need to do in your online home business, when you feel the resistance, ask yourself that question.
You spend $10 bucks on your first FB ad.
What’s the worst that can happen? You lose $10 dollars? Can you handle that! Can you lose another $10 a day until you get it profitable? Sure you can.
You email your new prospect list and make an offer to them, and somebody unsubscribes and hits the spam button on their way out the door.
Is that too tough for you to take?
You buy a Solo Ad from a vendor. Again, what’s the worst that can happen?
As long as your smart about things, the risk is usually just created in our heads.
We think we can’t “”fail””, because if we do, WE’RE a failure.
But it’s just not true!
Here’s another one to ask yourself…
What’s the BEST CASE SCENARIO that could happen here?
So maybe the ad leads to a $1k commission, 10 people buy from the email you sent, the solo ad brings you another 100 leads and a few sales scattered over the month…
Think both ways, be willing to fail, and take action.
Fail twice as much, again, it’s Sir Thomas formula to success. And it’s a great one.
I double dog dare ya, put this to the test.
Go through the easy steps, start to test a few ads to your links that you’ll be receiving to promote with, and fail yourself forward to success with this!
Just get going! What’s the worst that could happen?
Why are you really looking at building up an online home business?
Is it to make a jillion bucks, to become filthy stinking rich, and to have 2-3 Ferrari’s in the garage of your mansion?
If you’re like me at all, that is NOT your goal.
In order to do something like that, you’d have to be able to run a very specific type of business.
One that will require a lot of blood, sweat and tears, coupled with a boatload of focus and determination.
Here’s what I’ve found that many of us are looking for.
It’s not a business that makes us the most possible, but rather a business that bothers us the least possible.
We want a home business that we can mostly take ourself out of and it’ll still run and be profitable.
We want automated income.
Which will in turn give us time and money to do whatever it is that we want to.
*Time with loved ones
How can you do this?
Well again, running a home business isn’t easy. You need staff, product to sell, you’ve got support, merchant fees, you’ll need affiliates to promote your stuff, and really about 20-30 other things you’ll need to consider…
And even then, you don’t even know for sure if that business you’ve created will be a profitable one.
That’s very risky ground to be on…
So how can we make the most and yet, get bothered the LEAST by the business?
You team up with a person that’s doing all of the above! You leverage everything he’s already set up, and you’re now essentially out of the daily procedures and processes.
You will be up and rolling extremely fast here.
Everything is already set up, profitable, and ready for you to use and leverage to your success.
Not only that, but you’ll get a coach to help you along the way when you need them.
These same coaches can make you a LOT of money as well! (e.g. Become friends with them!)
You see, as a part of this system, the lions share of the backend profits go straight to you.
This means that this system is COMPLETE.
Literally everything is setup so you can work the minimal amount, and make the maximum profits.
Normally, this would sound too good to be true and would be about some hypey software that would allow you to simply push a button and make millions. lol…
That’s not this.
This company has employees from all around the world, working around the clock supporting you.
There’s a team of sales people working 10-18 hrs a day making YOU money.
This company is bringing in millions a month. It’s not push button, it’s a full fledged legit business and a fast growing company.
And you can proudly and simply leverage it all to your own personal success.
It’s setup with you in mind to succeed fast, no matter what your experience level is.
And members from all experience levels have profited from this and proven it will work for anyone serious, at any age, that’s willing to give it a go.
Well, ponder on this for a quick second then.
Following online income systems is like following a cooking recipe.
You can take the same cooking recipe, like for example, a recipe to mouth-watering, warm chocolate chip cookies.
And then you take take a handful of people that have the same ingredients, the same tools, the same everything.
I can guarantee you, some of the cookies that these people make will be great, some will be good, and some will be downright terrible!
How can this be so?
Because it’s not just about the recipe. It’s not just about the knowledge.
It’s what you do with it.
Some might have what we’d call, “”the touch””.
But everyone CAN have it if they’ll just think past the recipe/ system a little further and do what makes sense.
And with a recipe, a good cook will follow a recipe, then they will taste it.
If it needs a little extra something, they’ll add it. Maybe they’ll substitute one ingredient for another. It’s not just cut and paste.
Same thing with online home business systems.
You test, tweak, see how things are working for you, then you adjust some more. You perfect the system and make it your own.
And when you make it your own, now you’ve got something really valuable. Something that you can share with others and that can make you a lot of money.
A recipe for success.
There’s nothing wrong with taking a home business system, and then getting creative with it. Finding unique ways to use it and standing apart from other affiliates.
To look for ways to zig when everybody else is zagging.
You want to be the purple cow in a field full of brown cows.
And you can apply this to ANY business, ANY niche, and ANY system. In fact, you must!
Because if you stand out, if you’re unique and follow what I outlined above… You’ll. Get. Sales. Guaranteed.
But that doesn’t mean you’re profitable, not yet.
Profits come AFTER that -on the back end.
After the initial point of contact, Matt’s team will follow-up on your leads FOR YOU.
They’ll close high ticket sales FOR YOU.
They’ll reveal cutting-edge information to your leads FOR YOU.
And this will result in lots-o-commissions FOR YOU!!
Stand out. Use MTTB. Make money.
Easy peezy lemon squeezy.
The immediate benefits are obvious.
You can make $1k to $9k or higher PER CUSTOMER.
Just a few customers per month, and that’s a pretty dang good income.
I’m happy doing things this way.
It’s much easier to get to $10k per month with top tier rather than trying to get there by selling cheap, $7 to $97 dollar offers.
Those lower ticket offers have their place, but it’s not where your profits in this internet marketing business will be found.
Not by a long shot.
High. Ticket. Baby.
Now there’s also a not so obvious element to running a highly profitable top tier driven internet marketing business.
As you run a business like this, it’s easy not to be greedy in your actions.
Here’s the way I see it.
Most of us “”want”” to give to others, whether it be with things, our time, or something else.
But either our time, or our income is most often limited to the point where we just can’t.
And so we come off feeling like we’re THE GRINCH!!
How, you ask?
Through the bonuses and incentives you offer to your leads.
What would you do for, or give to your prospects, if you were earning $1k, $3k, $5k, commissions?
Way more than if they’ve only invested $17 dollars with you right?
*You could send $200 of traffic to their affiliate links.
*You could help them get their first 500 leads.
*You could buy them a Kindle loaded with your top 5, most life-changing books, mailed to their home with a personal hand-written note from you included.
*You could offer to spend on hour on the phone for the next month helping them grow their business.
*If they spent $5-10k with you, you might even travel to their city or pay for them to come to you and do an intense 2-3 days workshop getting them a profitable funnel of their own up and running.
*And lots more…
We’re just touching the surface here, but do you think something like that would be of value to your leads?
Think that may incline them to buy from you?
Do you think they’ll be more likely to take action and succeed now as opposed to just buying another “”guru course””?
YESSIR ON ALL ACCOUNTS!!
So the lesson today?
Don’t be greedy. Share the wealth.
Create irresistible bonuses that really help people.
Doing things this way benefits everybody. Running a top tier business benefits everybody.
Have a great day,
Yea, weird thing to say right?
But it’s true.
Think about this. If you’re mildly dissatisfied or unhappy with anything in your life, say, having a low income, being stuck in a job that you hate or with your online home business, you can “”deal”” with it.
And some people deal with it for 20-40 years until they hit the retirement age!
They were dissatisfied just to the point where they could put up with it, but not to the point where it would require a CHANGE to be made.
Mild dissatisfaction is a terrible thing to have in my opinion.
It’s like a slow leak in a car tire. You can tolerate it, just filling up the tire with air as needed. You could go on doing that for a loooooong time.
Yet, if the tire were to experience a huge rip in its side causing air to uncontrollably burst out, driving would be impossible.
You’d have to make a drastic change and get a new tire immediately!
EXTREME dissatisfaction dictates that you just can’t take things as they are anymore.
That change MUST transpire.
Now, this doesn’t mean that you have to hit rock bottom, or that your life has to be miserable in order for you to create a better life for yourself and your family.
But it does mean that you need to get dissatisfied with where you’re at right now. I mean REALLY dissatisfied.
It’s means you have to create a “”catalyst”” for change.
You have to create the urgency that the air isn’t slowly leaking out of the tire (your life), it’s bursting open and needs immediate attention and action to fix things!
What’s it that you see in your mind right now that you’re fed up with? What would you like to be better? What do you dream of achieving?
What does it feel like looking back to this day a few months from now, having made the decision to change and now you’re LIVING THE CHANGE?
HAVING the things you’ve always wanted…
Create the catalyst in your mind, and then take the actions to get there.
Because once you decide to make the change, you still need a proven plan to follow to help you pull it off and get to where you want to be in your life.
The mttb system is the best of it’s kind. Actually it may be the only of it’s kind, as the big, juicy, high ticket commissions are closed and SHARED with you.
It’s the actual profitable part of this online home business, which most of the “”gurus”” are secretly hiding from you.
Not with mttb though.
To your success,
And I’d agree, they ARE important.
There are some things that you cannot track. That you can’t really scale up.
And I’d venture to say that these things are just as -if not MORE- important than leveraging and tracking to your hearts content.
What is it?
Well, let me tell you what it is right now, and I’ll also end things here with a WARNING! ‘Cause you can do it all wrong like many do.
Here it is…
ONE ON ONE CUSTOMER INTERACTION.
If you can show a new customer or lead one on one, personal attention, there’s a solid chance you’ll see your income and results soar like you’ve never seen before.
And here’s a big tip:
The more PERSONAL your level of interaction is, most often, the better results in your online home business you’ll then get.
Personal one on one interaction could include responding personally to a FB Message, helping them out via email, sending them a personal welcome after an upfront purchase
and so forth.
MORE personal would be something like picking up the phone and talking with them, giving them a free strategy session that you’d normally charge $500 bucks for, giving them $50 to spend on buying their first leads from FB (hey they just gave you $1k, I think you can give ‘em $50 bucks!), sending them something physical in the mail like your favorite biz book etc.
But here’s the warning…
If you can do things that they’re not “”expecting””, then your results will nearly 10X.
So think about ways that you can cleverly do this. Of course the best way is to actually CARE about your customers and leads and have their best interests at heart, even over your own.
Look for ways to GO THE EXTRA MILE.
That’s the key.
Surprise and thrill the socks off of ‘em.
Now, this is something I think everybody should do, and if you do it, you WILL see results.
However, it’s extremely hard for most people to do this.
Well because, most people have tiny profit margins in their business. And if you’re just making a few bucks off of each sale, then it’s pretty hard to add this type of value to your customers lives.
To add the type of value that they deserve.
When you’re earning $1k, $3k, $5k+ commissions on the back end, then you can EASILY pull this off right?
And as an awesome side benefit, you won’t need NEAR as many customers each month in order to make an incredible income.
If you could give just 10 people a month solid attention and help, could you do it?
Low-stress, high value to you and your customers, and you have the time to BREATH and THINK and HELP others.
Something in my opinion that’s priceless in these busy times we live in.
Either way, take whatever you’re doing right now and add in the one on one, go the extra mile element to your online home business.
It’ll be WELL WORTH the extra effort.
Years after the books initial release, the second edition came out.
And it was chock full of case studies and testimonials of people who had changed their lives by applying the books tips and strategies.
However, the question remains…
Can you REALLY get to a 4 hour workweek?
Inquiring minds want to know.
In my humble but accurate opinion on this, and based on the thoughts of some of my peers, some 8-9 figure earners…
The answer is Yes and No.
If you already have a profitable online business up and running, or can get to the point where you have an online business in the profits…
And, you can afford and are able to outsource and automate things to a certain point…
Then yes, it’s possible to work just four hours or so a week, and the machine just keeps on turning profits over for you.
But here’s the thing…
When you’re doing things that way?
You are just MAINTAINING.
The business will not be growing in any way whatsoever.
And eventually, it won’t even be at the maintenance phase. The profits will suddenly begin to disappear.
Markets and industries change, what worked last week may not work this week, new competitors may hop on the scene and wipe away your profits, your top affiliates and partners might leave…
Somebody has to be marketing and growing the online business with the times, and THAT… is hard to outsource and automate.
This is a very rare opportunity.
What if there WAS someone else?
And that person had a huge team, grand ideas, was testing, innovating, creating new products, expanding and multiplying profits regularly?
Normally, this just isn’t possible. You don’t just GET THIS OPPORTUNITY anywhere.
Most will never hear of what you’re about to have revealed to you…
However, through a rare and “odd” form of licensing and the creating of a unique partnership, you can get a chance at this.
Again, do all this yourself, and you’ll never achieve the 4 hour workweek, or likely, anything better than a 40-60 hour workweek for that matter.
But parter with the right guy, that’s working around the clock, and has a profitable plan already working to the tune of 7-figures a month?
Well, it may just be possible!
And let me know if I can help out in any way.
‘Tis life changing stuff indeed.
