I've got a powerful story to tell you today that I hope will inspire you.
It's all about the first $1000 that I made online without having to join a Home Business, MLM or becoming an Affiliate.
I absolutely loved my job, the staff I had working for me, and all of the really cool people that I got to interact with daily.
The problem was I was working to live, and not living to working....I wanted more time with my kids and more money in my bank to support them.
Things were going great at my job. I was working my butt off and I was focused on climbing the corporate latter to become a President of a company and figured it would take about 10 - 15 years....with a solid career game-plan.
I was pretty focused at this career path, and I knew I needed a long term plan so I could get my income to 500k or more per year…and have a solid retirement plan.
The major problem was I had a huge time commitment to my job, and I had two kids at home that needed my time….it was a conundrum to say the least.
I wanted to move ahead with my job, but I didn’t want to be the employee either trapped to a schedule that I ultimately had no control over.
As fate would have it....I was laid off in 2009 just after the new year. All that hard work, time investment had been wasted and was gone...
I needed something to replace my income in a way, that I could work where I want, when I want...and how much I wanted. I had to juggle being married, raising two kids under two...and launch a recession proof business. This was not going to be an easy task.
In 2010 I joined an MLM and loved the idea of plugging into a franchise income without the franchise fees, and promoting a product I really could stand behind. I met plenty of people making small fortunes from home....and I wanted what they had.
The problem was..it was someone else’s business and you were trapped by “None Compete Clauses” the higher you went in the ranks if you wanted to maintain your income….not to mention that you only took home about 30- 40% of the revenue you generate….and in a way you were anchored into your Company like an employee.
The hook in all MLM’s is living the dream, but unfortunately alot of people who join them are just living the nightmare. I loved the concept of recurring revenue, team building, mass influence and leverage….but there were alot of challenges to the recruitment and sales, and I seen 3 companies go bankrupt.
In 2010 I heard about affiliate marketing, and decided to add this to my arsenal of skills…I bought a number of courses and learned how to become a super affiliate.
I love it, it was easy to do...I was building a huge list, and making steady daily commissions that I could wash rinse and repeat daily with just a few emails.
The problem was I was building someone else's buyers list, and exposing my lists to other marketers….and I had to make new sales if I wanted to hit my monthly income target.
Plus I was paying for leads, and converting my leads into sales with email marketing was a challenge, I sometimes had no idea of what to write, and how to maintain engagement….and I struggled to maintain the cash flow I needed to self liquidate the ad spend I was injecting….
I needed a way to duplicate their model and build my own affiliate list. I wondered how could I get affiliates promoting my products?
The big problem was how?
I read a certain book...
(you've probably read this too)
The 4 Hour Work Week
There was one particular part of this book
that stuck out to me and really stopped me
in my tracks. I remember laying in bed
reading and just sitting up all of a sudden
and realizing that the path I was on was
a broken one.
The Thought that Changed Everything:
"The More Successful I Become in My Current Business, The More Hours I'm going to Have to Spend Working in My Business."
I don't know about you but that doesn't
sound like a Business at all. I realized
really quickly that all I had done after
years of going to school to be a Corporate Director
in a major company....
...Was to Create a Job For Myself.
I didn't start my own business to
spend longer and longer hours at work,
or build another business opportunity...
And so I started trying to figure out how
I could make money without having to
be stuck to my office, not to mention
commuting 40 hours per week on top
of a 60 hour work week.
Over the next couple of months, the
answer revealed itself to me.
I started to notice that I was repeating
myself in My Job... Alot.
A lot of my clients had the same
questions and I was answering them
over and over again with answers
that worked to help them.
So one day...
I figured out that I could package that
information as a "digital instruction manual"
and just give it to them.
I started hearing that they were sharing this
digital info that I had created with their
friends and relatives that lived in other
places around the country.
And then... It Clicked.
I could sell this information using the internet.
There was just one issue...
How Could I Be Sure that Anyone Would Buy it?
And that's where things got really interesting.
Watch your email tomorrow.
I'm going to share a trick that I learned way back
that made it super easy for me to create digital
products that were almost guaranteed to sell.
I can promise you that what I share with you
tomorrow will change the way you look at
selling information online... Forever.
It's so simple... but I see just about everyone
who has trouble selling stuff online make this
To Be Continued Tomorrow...
