As you may know… I’ve been marketing online since 2007. My initial start was with eBay and I did very well… But affiliate marketing was something that really caught my eye. So what I am about to share with you is what really changed my own business… and hopefully it can yours too.
Pay Yourself First!
For a very long time I did not get this…Everyone was talking about it…BUT I was not understanding what these people were talking about… Basically, from all the earnings (paychecks, business earnings, even gifts) at least 10% should be put aside to reinvest into your own business… For most people…this is really hard…BUT is should not be… once I started implementing this…my business started growing. And I still manage to pay all the other living expenses I had.
Small tasks that are really time consuming should be outsourced. DON’T do everything yourself. YOU are going to go crazy if you do. Find people who you can call up on to do small task, and train them to do those. Have few people at hand. With one of my businesses, it would not be possible to handle all the orders myself. That is why I hired 2 full time employees to do it. 🙂
Add some kind of recurring income to your back office. It is a lot easier to GROW your business, when you have reliable income coming your way every single month. Be it that you are offering software as a service, or your own services, as long as it is passive, ans as long as you can count on it.
When I started online…I was a member of 2 forums for Internet marketing. One was paid and one was free. After I learned the initial ways to drive traffic, and how to setup my lead pages…I kind of did my own thing… BUT that was a mistake…If I networked more, my business would have grown quickly to 20-30K/month… Knowing people in your industry can really go a long way. Not only can you learn from them, but you can grow your business a lot faster!
Never rely on just 1 traffic source!
Most people are NOT aware, but relying on one traffic source is a mistake… EVEN if it works really well. WHY? Imagine if that traffic source dried up for some reason…Your entire business would CRASH! I am sure you don’t want that… The biggest commissions and sales come to me, when I send people to my money pages from MULTIPLE sources.
The right kind of list building
No matter what you are doing – in any business. You need LEADS! I know there are people who are going to stress the importance of LIST… but NOT ANY kind…Your focus needs to be on buyers list. If you can build buyers list, you can really print out your paychecks each month! So if you are buying solo ads – make sure BUYERS are on that list! If you are driving traffic to YouTube videos, makes sure you are doing so by targeting buyer keywords! Get yourself in front of the buying audience.
One of the hardest things in this business is to focus! This problem has been the worst for me too… So know that you are not alone in it…After all, there are so many shiny objects to buy :D. I personally buy a lot of stuff online as well. BUT when I do buy, I think of it this way… I am focusing on THIS right now… Do I really need to buy that? And if it fits with what I am doing… I move forward. If it does not. I don’t buy.
I’ve gotten a lot better at goal settings. What really helps me is this process. I write out at the beginning of the week everything that needs to get done. Than I break it down into prioritized list by day and that keeps me on track. And of course… turning off social media destruction. I personally use Facebook for business, but I am known to shut it down after I check my messages, otherwise I am not productive.
At the very beginning I was getting into information overload. It was really BAD. I was frustrated and exhausted most of the time and money was not coming in. Things changed when I picked a niche I wanted to work in… and only learned about that method and how to drive traffic to my lead pages and that niche specified blog. When you focused on ONE method, ONE sales funnel, things start to really change. From a struggling $500/month income I easily went to 2.5 recurring in just 3 months.
So take what you can from these 9 factors that really made a huge difference in my own business, and implement it.
I love to test out new software’s and use them on adding them to my arsenal of tools that help generate more leads in my business. So I’ve tested OptinChat recently and received amazing results!
It took me less than 5 minutes and I’ve generated 40+ leads from it.
Keep in mind, those leads would have left my site otherwise…
Why did it work so well? Cause OptinChat is very interactive piece of software that make it look like YOU are live there chatting with your visitors… And that LIVE factor, gets people excited and eager to give you their e-mail address!
