5 Ways You Can Reuse Your Content For Profit

We have all heard it…Content Is King! But I have seen so many people struggle to keep up with fresh valuable content. Are you on the same boat?

Today I want to share my content strategy with you. It’s all about working smart, NOT hard.

Ok, so here’s the thing…who says you have to keep coming up with fresh content to get new traffic. As long as you are creating valuable content the first time, then you can reuse your content multiple times to reach traffic from multiple sources. Sounds simple enough, right?

Let me introduce you to my content circle. The content circle is made up of:

  • Forum Posts
  • Blog Post
  • Facebook Live
  • YouTube Video
  • Facebook Ads

You can start from any point of the circle, hence the circle, and you will see the same great results. But for the interest of this article, let’s start with forum posts.

Forum Posts

This is a perfect place to start if you don’t know what to write about. Head over to sites like Quora or Reddit and find questions to answer within your niche. Answer the question that is being asked and provide as much value as you can. This will help you later when you reuse the content plus it builds your credibility.

Here is a trick I use to drive traffic from these forums. At the end of my answer, I insert something like this:

“Did my answer help? You can let me know on my blog or reach out to me through Facebook. And let me know if this was helpful.”

I tailor it to fit the answer so it’s not the same every time but you get the idea. This helps me drive traffic to my blog and helps me connect with people on Facebook. You will be surprised to how many people have reached out to me from adding this part at the end of my answers.

Blog Posts

Ok, now that I have a well written full of value content in a form of a forum post, I simply modify it a bit to make it a blog post. For example, I take out the part about visiting my blog because people are already on my blog.

Just some very simple minor edits that takes me about 5 mins to do. Then, they get scheduled to my blog as a post.

Here is an example of the question I answered and the blog post that came out of it:

Quora Question Link

Blog Post Link

On this blog post, I simply told my readers that this was a forum post and pasted my answer. I just added an intro and an ending to the article.

This was me being lazy but you see that it doesn’t take that much work.

Facebook Live

You already have the content, you know that people are asking the question. Why not share the answer with your Facebook Friends that might have the same question?

As long has you know the content, Facebook Live is very easy to do. It really is as simple as pressing a button and talking about your topic.

I know I said that it is super simple but for some of you, it might not be. You might be camera shy or just not feel comfortable with talking to people. That’s ok…here are some tricks to help you overcome those fears.

  • Create a Script: Done! You already have your forum post; that is your script.
  • Practice: Practice saying your script in front of the mirror. You have already used this content twice so you already know it. You just need to talk to it. Practice it a couple of times and you will be great at it.
  • Practice Again: If you feel like you are ready after practising in front of a mirror, then go for it. If you still feel nervous, then practice on Facebook. When you click on Go Live on Facebook, you have the option of selecting who you go live to. Click on the Public drop-down menu and select ‘Only Me’. Then go for it because only you will be able to see it. After you are done, you don’t have to post it on your timeline. Once you start nailing it, then go live to the public.

YouTube Video

After you finish your Facebook Live, then you have the option of downloading your video before you post it on your timeline. Download the video!

Now you have a video to post on your YouTube channel. Wait…did we just upload a video to YouTube that is packed with valuable content in like less than 5 mins? Oh yes we did!

If you are not so happy about the Facebook Live video, then no problem. You already have the script ready, just create another video using the script without the pressure of being live.

And just like that, another free traffic source added to your funnel.

Facebook Ads

Have you ever browsed around on Amazon…then you logged off to go to Facebook and BOOM you just found an ad for the same thing you were looking at on Amazon.

What just happened?

You my friend, have just been targeted. Don’t worry though, it’s not the end of the world. The best part is that it is very easy for you to do that with your blog too. You don’t have to be big like Amazon.

So, how do you do it?

Facebook has an ads manger, where you can log in and handle all your ads that you run through them. In the ads manager, you can get a pixel to put on your blog or any other site you have. A pixel is just a fancy word for a short code that will track who visits your site.

So say you installed the pixel on your blog. Someone from your forum post visits your blog and then leaves. Chances are they are never going to come back again but you have the pixel installed. So you go into our Facebook ads manager and run a campaign that retargets everyone that has visited your site.

This is very targeted traffic and it allows you the opportunity to build trust with them. What could be better?

Oh yes, there is one thing. You already have content from your blog, your Facebook Live and your YouTube Video that you can use for your Facebook Ad. Yes, that is definitely better…no extra work creating the content and ton of targeted traffic.

There you have it, one jam packed with value content used 5 different ways to get you traffic from different sources. It doesn’t get any better than this.

Can You Dismiss Overwhelm and Make Money Stresslessly?

For anyone starting to make money online one is told many things that they should be doing, in effect you are pulled from pillar to post, thrown in every direction.  Unsurprisingly no wonder so many people give up on their dreams of having their own online business.  Just as they start out and start listening to all the tutors, coaches and gurus out there, they soon become overwhelmed, not knowing which way to turn.

So, we need to go back to basics every now and then, and really stand back and strip back what we are actually trying to do because each and every one of us get lost in the details, and once we have more clarity, we remove a level of stress, get rid of the overwhelm and confusion.

You see these days everybody wants to be a coach or tutor, selling their courses and coaching, and a natural outcome is that they all try to get their own unique selling point, to be different from the market.  As a result, we end up with multiple different ways to do the same thing, which one do you go for?  Again, overwhelm and confusion. 

When you do strip back all the latest fads, the latest push button get rich schemes you actually realise you should be doing exactly the opposite to what you are being told to do.  Make it simple, go back to basics – strip it back. 

Is it right that you should be creating and launching product after product?  Should you be bombarding people’s email accounts on a more than regular basis?  What about if you are not in with the in crowd so that they can promote your launches, and you have no affiliates and no jv partners.  Do you need to be spending your whole life on social media promoting and schmoosing?

No wonder we sit there going grey, pulling our hair out, when we are trying to build our business out in the infancy of being in the online business space.  Throw us a life jacket mate I am drowning here!  Not only are we trying to work out which bit to do first but it gets you thinking about the old conundrum, “what came first, the chicken or the egg?”  More like what came first a brood of chickens or a dozen eggs there’s that much to do?  Which bit comes first?  And then half way through doing that you think oh I should be doing that instead so you do that and the other bit doesn’t ever get finished.

So, if you are just starting out, or been in the game for some time but not really been too successful you should go back to the fundamentals and work out what you don’t need to do.  Do only the things that you need to do to achieve your goals.

Follow a tried and tested blueprint, don’t reinvent the wheel let someone else work out what needs doing. 

At the end of the day, what’s the simplest but one of the most effective models to make money online:  drive targeted traffic to a high converting offer.

It’s as simple as bringing customers to a lead magnet on an opt-in page, once subscribed convert your prospects into buyers by offering them a $1 to $500 front end.  Then offer up upsells that build upon the first products, maybe a membership product.  Following this, we have the back end, the high-ticket items where the big profits come from.

That’s essentially it!  And it works in any niche!!

The cool thing is, is that the more people you put through the whole sequence, the more you sell and the more money you make.

But ouch!  What if you don’t have product creation experience, you don’t know how to build an opt-in page, what if you do not know how to create high converting sales pages.  What if you don’t have the support to help you along your way, don’t despair.

Well do … because although you know, in theory, what this simple success model is, you still may not know how to put it all together. 

You need to find yourself some great training, a proven blueprint, yet easy to follow and understand.  And I came across a blueprint that fits this whole model and not only that I have put together a killer bonus package.  The course itself shows you exactly how to build this model out, fast, and my bonuses take it to the next level, and at a no brainer price that will leave you speechless.

Optimize Your Presence on Facebook

BEST OF FACEBOOK

According to recent studies, 47 percent of Facebook users say that Facebook has the greatest impact on the purchase behavior. That is compared to just about 34 percent in 2015. Now interestingly enough, Twitter actually ranks about 5% and lower. So, what does that mean? That means that, if you really want to drive person’s behavior within all the social networks, you have to use Facebook and you have to have a Facebook presence.

Now, what’s amazing is that Facebook has a large opportunity in communicating with consumers in a non-intrusive way. So, in other words if done correctly you can make sales
without having to directly sell. Right! Hence, if your business doesn’t have a Facebook presence that is optimized the right way, you actually missing out on a lot of potential leads, sales and relationships.

If you’re a local business owner thinking, well there’s no way in the world that this impacts me. Then let me show you some stats. Surprising stats from recent local search studies show people that use Facebook actually use Facebook for local business searches to find out what people are really saying about your business. In fact, Facebook is only outranked by Google Maps and that means if your business isn’t on Facebook, there’s no doubt in my mind that you’re missing out on attracting prospective customers and building brand recognition.

So, as you can see, whether you’re a local business owner or online business owner that sells a product or service, it doesn’t matter. You need to have an optimized Facebook presence or
else you’re leaving money on the table. Now Facebook is not just for teenagers or college students alone. In fact, just in the USA market alone, 55 percent of Americans about ages 45 to 54 have a profile on the social networking site.

your presence on Facebook the right way? Which is what you want in the end. Which brings you results in terms of conversions, sales, profits and more.

There are 4 key focus areas to address in order to optimize your Facebook presence and to make sure that you succeed: –
1. You need to create a customized action plan
2. You’re going to need to brand your company
3. You need a Facebook Marketing Blueprint plan
4. You need rapid speed content creation so that you don’t have to worry about sitting there for hours and hours and hours creating content.

Let’s address their outlines so that you can see exactly what you’re getting into. Then I’m going to show you exact samples so you know what to expect and more.

Basically before we jump right in, I’m going to give you a quick overview of each area. You’re going to learn how the system works and what you need to get started. Then of course we going to go over the 4 key focus areas.

KEY FOCUS AREA 1

Action Plan
You need an Action Plan. What is important to learn is how to create an action plan. Before we look at these 4 key focus areas, you want to make sure that you understand your personalized customized action plan before you get started so that you can actually succeed.

KEY FOCUS AREA 2

Branding
This brings us to Key Focus Area 2 which is branding. Getting ready to get your brand onto Facebook. A lot of people make the mistake of just jumping onto Facebook and creating a Facebook fan page and assuming that it’s going to work. If you do not have your brand set up, then that is going to complicate things and make things harder for you in the long run.

Memorable Slogans
You want to make sure that you set yourself up for success. Therefore, on that point, you must create a memorable slogan for your Facebook presence.

Colors
You need to learn how to use colors to sell subconsciously so you can actually tap in the subconscious mind and create a specific environment.

Quality Logo
Learn how to create a high quality and low price logo. However, if you do have a logo, you might want to consider upgrading your existing logo. I can show you how to do that as well.

Use of Mascot
You also need to know how to use mascots to brand your company on Facebook.

KEY FOCUS AREA 3

Facebook Traffic
This brings us to Key Focus Area 3 which is the Facebook traffic section. Do you actually know how to drive traffic to your Facebook fan page and how to do it the correct way? Would you like to learn how to do it? Then keep on reading.

Right Mindset
How do you get into the right mindset to gain free traffic from Facebook? It all comes down to quality over quantity. Quality focused fans over Quantity of fans.

Seek and Find Fans
You will now need to search and find active fans so that you can build up your fan page. Building up your fan page is an important role in terms of sales, profit, products and services that you offer.

How to Find Engaging Fans
How to find engaging fans and how do you really engage with them. There is a right way and a wrong way. Which one are you following right now?

Outsource and Automate
Then of course from that point on you need to know how to outsource and automate this process if you don’t want to do this yourself. If you want to do it yourself that’s fine. You don’t have to automate or else outsource this process.

KEY FOCUS AREA 4

Content
Key Focus Area 4 is content. Created content is key, because that’s what keeps the community growing. People are interested in your videos, your post and everything like that. That keeps the conversation going, because you don’t want the conversation to stop.

Create Simple Video Intros
That brings us to creating simple video intros. If you want to make sure that you brand yourself every time you put out a new interesting video, you want to make sure that you have a good video intro that brands you and your company. So that when somebody leaves your site, that brand sticks in their minds.

Build Trust
Build trust with educational videos are also very important. In this case we’re going to use edutainment. Basically educational videos that are entertainment as well.

Branding Facebook Post
Let’s now look at branding with Facebook post. I will show you in a specific video a secret method that reveals to you how to create content at a rapid speed pace. So, don’t worry about having to sit there for hours and hours and hours creating content. I will show you how to create lots and lots of content within a few minutes.

Making Money Using WikiHow

Many exciting and easy to start business ventures have emerged on the Internet in the past decades and more would emerge in the next few years with greater advancements in technologies. One of the sprouting online business ventures today is wikiHow.

This is an interesting web platform that offers a host of relevant guides on ‘How-to’ in a myriad of tasks and projects which consumers may be interested to know. This impressive online virtual ‘guidebook’ is extensive on its offering with a growing list of items as the days go by.

What wikiHow Offers

The primary objective of this online platform is to provide high quality e-manuals on tasks and projects. It reveals in simple steps how things could be handled, made and developed in easy approaches with the best of materials and skills using sufficient knowledge to guide the explorer.

This useful platform has attracted millions of readers and fans who are constantly seeking for ‘Know-how’ solutions on the various types of tasks at hand. A wide array of task categories is available with well developed online guides to assist users from start to finish with resounding success.

A special web-based community is formed with the flexibility of contributors of relevant guides on any category of task. Every interested individual is welcomed to submit their own guide on their preferred task or project as well as make edits to existing pages to enhance the quality of the guide posted. Edits to posted guides could include adding on pictures or correcting inaccurate instructions as well as correcting typo errors or grammatical mistakes in the article.

The platform boasts of thousands of ‘How-to’ guides from all walks of life across the globe with a high ranking by Google Analytics. It also boasts of being one of the most popular websites with millions of readers every month.

There are certain standards and formats which a wikiHow article or guide must comply with to be posted and viewed.

Money Spinning Opportunity

wikiHow is a special online site that is driven by writers and editors who are primarily volunteers. These individuals collaborate dynamically to generate high quality ‘How-to’ guide articles to benefit those seeking simple and free solutions to their daily needs that would enhance their living.

Contributors could come from any part of the earth with online submissions if they have a plausible solution to a problem or task that needs a simple solution. Contributors who have dynamic solutions in addressing certain problems or difficulties in life or work could submit their helpful information for sharing on this network to benefit others in that predicament.

One of the ways in which a wikiHow writer or editor could generate income from their article contribution is through paid advertising on the article pages. A lot of businesses are willing to pay the contributors for an ad space on their ‘How-to’ guide pages if these contributing writers or editors are notable on their writing skills in developing great guide articles on this platform.

Article contributors may choose their preferred paid ads to be displayed along their articles for a fee if they were offered by interested advertising merchants. Setting changes on these ads could be controlled by the article contributor to allow or disallow the ad to pop up when one logs in.

With the primary objective of wikiHow being the main focal point of article contributors, sharing ‘How-to’ information freely on this platform is essential. However, a personal blog could be developed to promote the wikiHow article with paid advertisements to generate the desired income. This may be an indirect money spinning opportunity which holds true to the basis of wikiHow.

Many online entrepreneurs expand their market reach and visibility for their personal Internet business ventures by participating in wikiHow with excellent ‘How-to’ guides that are posted on this platform for free. However, these enterprising entrepreneurs also have their own web business site where they post high quality related content that is interesting and captivating to drive massive traffic to boost their own online business ventures. Backlinks may be considered on wikiHow guide articles to direct traffic from this platform to the entrepreneur’s web business site for a greater exposure to the business.

wikiHow contributors could also be affiliate marketers who manipulate affiliate marketing to benefit themselves in earning more side income. This simple marketing option allows the affiliate marketer cum wikiHow contributor to enjoy more earnings with a simple integration of both platforms if executed professionally.

Promotional products and services could be readily introduced professionally through article marketing and blogs on behalf of selected merchants. This would open the floodgates to more traffic and sales for higher profits desired by the marketer. Every affiliate product or service could be generated as a ‘How-to’ guide on behalf of the advertising merchant who may offer excellent commissions for every high quality guide article published on wikiHow.

wikiHow contributors who are creative in their literary skills could seek out companies that have a variety of products and services to be promoted to generate appropriate ‘How-to’ guide articles on wikiHow for free but be paid by the company. That same company could also advertise its web business site on that article page if endorsed by the wikiHow contributor. High commissions could be secured for generating a well written wikiHow guide article, especially if the response to the article is encouraging. But more pay could be garnered with the permitted company ad on the guide page itself. Hence, the wikiHow contributor would be basically reaping a double income from the same source when the article is manipulated in different approaches.

Conclusion

A little creativity and initiative is all that is needed for a wikiHow contributor to make big bucks on this philanthropic platform. Such contributors would certainly feel good to share their knowledge and skills freely to assist those who are unable to afford professional assistance, but at the same time, these contributors are able to generate some income for themselves.

Nothing feels better than being able to contribute to society with a side income.

How a Nobody Made 3K in Sales on The Warrior Forum

Can a newbie really sell an internet marketing product on the the Warrior Forum or in JV Zoo and earn money?

If you are a nobody (a.k.a. newbie) like me and you are selling “how to” information products, your chance of getting sales and building a buyers list is from zero to slim. You just cannot teach about getting traffic and coaching those marketing tactics because you have to establish first your credibility to a tightly knitted community which will take time to nurture. You can try PLR pdfs and videos, but it won’t cut it because the WF buyers will know you are not the author or an expert you claim to be at all.

The Warrior Forum, arguably the biggest internet marketers’ forum is populated by experienced marketers and newbies looking for gurus or mentors. So how did I do it and what you should do too?

What should you be selling first if you are a newbie and have no connections?

Marketing software is the best product to sell. First, it has a higher perceived value compared to training courses, pdfs and videos. Second, if the software is top-notch, the buyers won’t give a damn if you are a newbie or not. Remember the “what’s in it for me” is the mantra of most of the buyers. The demo of the how good the software and how it can help them in their marketing efforts are the ones doing the selling.

Look at the top 3 bestselling products to date in JV Zoo below are all software. Need I say any more? The figures speak for themselves. No contest really.

topsoftwaresale

But software development is costly and I am not sure if the is what the marketers want ?

There is another easy way. Buy reseller or agency rights. I have bought agency rights for $10 as a bonus from a developer many times over and have sold it and I am still selling it on JV Zoo with my own affiliates to boot. I have bought 200 reseller rights for less than $200 which I already have earned 15 times the purchase price and I’m still halfway to finish selling all the rights. I just recently paid another $10 for a product for the bonus of having my product emailed to thousands of subscribers. And guess what product I promoted?  A reseller software product I have in JVZoo and it has done well for a $10 purchase.

Look at my sales in WSO forum below. While majority of the gurus and the veterans in the Warrior Forum are selling their wares from a ridiculously 5 dollars to 17 dollars and have to answer to so many doubters, I am selling my reseller software products for… wait for it… $47 a pop. A pricey one compared to the average sale price inside the forum. You can check my WSO sales page here to learn how I presented the product.

guestpostprofitcanvas

What are the guidelines I followed in choosing a good reseller software products ?

  1. Only buy reseller rights from top-notch software developers with world class support. There are many of them but be careful of some the fly-by-night ones that disappears once the software has major problems.
  2. Make sure that the software was a best seller when launched. The software I am selling had more than 3,000 plus happy buyers. Buy only software that has sold at least a thousand with no bad feedback.
  3. Support should be handled directly by the developer himself so you will be hands off from any technical support. Your role is to make sure the buyer has no problem accessing the product. If the developer cannot do support for the life of the software, then it is a sign that it is not a good buy and may trigger refunds.

Where can I find a top-notch software I can use to build a buyers list ?

Most of these reseller softwares are on limited time only and comes as special from time to time only. However, you might qualify to receive free 4 top-notch softwares  available in Profit Canvas Pro if you are serious about list building using email autoresponders.

So where will I go from here after they bought the software ?

Every buyer will be a part of your buyers list as long as you have an autoresponder integrated into JVZoo. It is a must that you own a reseller software products in JVZoo to build a buyers list. How to develop and nurture your buyers list is another topic but in general, you should continue to give then valuable content as you go through. One example is this real experience post I shared to my buyers list which can be another stream of income for them.

Doing Content Creation The Right Way

When content creation is done correctly it makes your online presence more visible and everything all the more easier. However you need to create good content on a regular basis so that it becomes engaging and holds an audience.

So how can you create profitable content on a consistent basis?

The strategy that you need to focus on is creating content consistently. Even if you suck at it first, if you keep developing content with confidence you’ll get to creating it with excellence.

Nobody is judging your content for its grammar, spellings or sentence structure. It’s not high school where your teacher will mark what you do with a red pen. Just write what you like best. Yes, good grammar and sentence structure are attractive but if you focus on writing what you want the public to know and the information is basic and authentic that’s pretty much what’s needed.

The best way you can create engaging content is to write as if you are talking to your audience. Write in the third person and talk to your reader. Be open in your writing as if you are having a conversation with someone you know.

Another thing that you can do to write good content is to tell the public what they don’t know. For example, if you run an online store selling clothes and accessories, you can focus on creating content that encourages people about dressing up; talk to them about latest fashion trends or what’s hot and in style. Make content that is of interest to people. Write what you would like to read yourself. Talk because dry content wouldn’t attract readers. Make lists, write about how to do different things etc.

People will be attracted to your opinion. Voice what you believe in and speak that out loud. That doesn’t literally mean in your own voice but tell people what your belief is so that they can know.

Stay away from private label rights. This PLR is you buying someone else’s content and calling it your own. If you do this, your business/product wouldn’t come across as it’s supposed to. It won’t have that personal feeling attached to it.

Powerful content creation is no big deal. If you learn how to hook your readers and keep them engaged you can easily sell your content to them without any hassle. Just make sure to stay neutral in your approach, write what you believe in. Don’t engage in writing paid content or reviews or else you’ll lose readers.

If you want to learn the secrets of creating powerful and very profitable content in as little time as possible then you need to visit http://jtpcoach.com/contentcreationblueprint.

Here you will find whatever you need to know about powerful content. It’s easy and not at all time consuming. Just follow the link and in no time you’ll have the key to high end content creation in front of you. No need to worry anymore. This is where you can learn the art of ultimate content creation.

Why do so Many People Fail Online?

So what is the biggest stumbling block for internet marketers, both new and old?  It’s a question that many people ask, and it seems there are many answers.  In my honest opinion few are right!

The answers I have heard include:

Shinny Object Syndrome – this is where people jump from one idea to another believing that the next launch, the next ebook, the next software product is “the one” that will make them rich

Not having a list – certainly this is a stumbling block, as we all know “the money is in the list.” However even without a list you can potentially make money

Lack of traffic – oh yeah this one is said a lot.  You see people say “but if I had more traffic I would make (more) money.” But again that is not always true, as even if you had 200 people a day visiting your site if they are not targeted or not buyers you won’t make money

“They” have all the luck – many people blame others thinking that they have more luck, they have special skills, they were born to the right family etc, etc, however again all of this is poppycock!

Lack of knowledge – kind of like the above. People will blame the fact that they don’t know everything thus they can’t possibly launch a product or service

My product is not yet perfect – oh the “don’t release it till it’s perfect” answer.  Let me tell you there is no such thing as perfection!  Since this is your product you will always see fault with it, you will always want to improve it.  The important thing is that you launch the product when it is good enough for the market. I don’t mean you should produce half finished products, I mean you need to know when a product is ready, and not always strive for perfection

You see when a person wants to find an excuse for not putting something out there they will. However, sometimes people don’t even realise that they are undertaking self sabotage.

But let me in on what I believe is the big secret to success!

Planning and Taking Action Fast!

They say money likes speed.  The quicker you are the more you make.  But you know the problem a lot of people have, in my opinion, is they don’t plan.  They see an internet business as being different from any other business out there! For some reason many people believe you can just start a business like that, super quick, no planning involved.  And then they wonder why they don’t make money

With an offline business before you open your doors, you are planning all the way.  Planning your premises, presentation of your goods, what you will sell, how you will make money out of each customer … the list goes on.

When it comes to the online world it seems most people forget about this. They don’t plan.  And let me in on a secret – I have been guilty of this too.

Here’s what has happened to me:

  • Decided to launch a product
  • Created the product
  • Created the sales page
  • Made a lot of sales

Then suddenly thought, shoot I never:

  • created an upsell
  • darn I forgot collect email addresses and put them on my autoresponder
  • oh man I never put any ads on a download page

Honestly I did not have a process in place.  And it is not just me. I have seen other people who  have had great launches end up being what one one might call “one hit wonders.” They have one success and then disappear.  Why? No succession planning.

It’s down to the planning

The truth is that some people create a product simply for a quick fix, to get them out of a hole they are in.  Imagine a shop opening up for a week, then once the initial stock was sold doing nothing as they just needed to make some quick money.

People would soon think how odd it was, that they are not following up with customers, restocking the shelves etc.  But this is what so many people online do.  They create a product, sell it then they kind of disappear because they have made the 3k that they needed to cover the rent or other expenses.

Those who succeed are those who plan, who take the time to think like a chess player, they think 3 or 4 products ahead. They have all of the pieces of their game lined up.

Look at the big players out there, or even the medium players.  They have a well oiled process when they sell a product. Watch the next launch or promotion one of the big dogs do and learn from it.

Getting back to basics

Ok so by now you know you need to plan. However, there is planning and there is planning.  This is something I found out the hard way.  You need to create a plan and stick to it. Don’t use the excuse of not having time, as one hour a day used wisely is better than 7 hours a day wasted browsing Facebook!

Over the years I have refined my plan and finally decided that I was going to share it with others in the form of my FastActionPlanner series.  These planners take you through the first 4 important stages of your document:

  • Niche Research Planning
  • Product Name Planning
  • Product Creation Planning
  • Sales Page Planning

Each planner prompts you to take action and guides you each step of the way. However more than that, once you have your plan and launch your product you then have a blue print to do it all over again.  But this time you will able to do it quicker!

If you’re serious about building an online business I recommend you check out Fast Action Planner.

Why Moving From eBay to Etsy Was The Best Thing I Ever Did

My name is Stuart Turnbull and today I’d like to share my story of how and why I switched my eBay business to Etsy.

I started selling on eBay way back in 2004 and found it to be an exciting and lucrative income stream. I loved connecting with buyers from around the world and watching my auctions fly to unbelievable prices as the bidders fought over my items!

I’m sure you remember how much fun it was selling on eBay back then before they decided they needed to move towards the Amazon business model and in doing so they alienated small sellers like you and me.

A gradual decline in my sales followed as eBay became dominated by the big retailers.

Never ending rule changes and fee increases plus the introduction of the Cassini search engine which tended to hide small seller’s listings led to my decision to look for an alternative platform to sell my items. (BTW I sell vintage book prints – you can read more about my business here).

At the back end of 2013 I decided to open a shop on Etsy and I began by listing my items simultaneously on eBay and on Etsy.

The results of this experiment shocked me – my new Etsy listings began to sell almost immediately and soon outpaced my eBay sales by 10 to 1 – my decision was a simple one – I closed down my eBay business and moved it lock, stock and barrel to Etsy!

You may have considered Etsy yourself but been put off thinking the platform is exclusively for handmade goods – this is absolutely NOT the case.

Etsy is indeed the world leading platform for handmade but it is also a vibrant and rapidly growing marketplace for vintage (anything 20+ years old) and craft supplies (anything that can be used to create handmade items).

In fact, Etsy has a buzzing marketplace for digital products – they even host your digital products free of charge! – do you remember the good old days on eBay before they banned digital goods?

Etsy is so much SIMPLER than eBay – with no selling restrictions on new sellers and just one site providing world-wide exposure. There is just one set of selling fees regardless of what you sell and these fees work out 80% CHEAPER than eBay’s!!

Today I make multiple daily sales and the great buyer/seller interaction makes it feel like eBay did a decade ago!

If you have yet to try Etsy for yourself (or you have opened your Etsy shop with limited success) I am more than happy to hold your hand and teach you the ropes – I have learned lots of tricks and techniques for growing a successful Etsy business over the last few years and I’d love to share them all with you – CLICK HERE to find out how you too can put the fun AND profit back into your online sales – and as a special ‘THANK YOU!’ for reading this post I have created a limited time coupon code to give you HALF OFF my course!

Please use the code – ‘halfprice’ at checkout.

Here’s to a successful online future for us all!

[Guest Post] Great Advice From Sherry Hamilton!

My Favorite Darth Vader Quote…
“When I left you I was but the learner. Now I am the master.”

6 years ago, these words would have left me feeling reluctantly incapable. I had never touched a computer or been on the internet and I definitely knew nothing about Internet Marketing! Then I put on my research hat and decided that not knowing just was not good enough for me, anymore. Today, I feel that the learner in me can qualify to advance to teacher. This is what I feel any Internet Marketer should know…

First and foremost, if you want to work online, take yourself seriously. Work for you better and harder than you would for any other employer. Make a schedule, put in the hours and hold yourself accountable. Set some goals and don’t let anything get in the way of completing each task towards those goals. Find a mentor or a coach who can guide you through the steps to success.

Secondly, expect to invest into your business and education for your chosen niche. Be serious and become as competent in the field as you can be. Learn from others and pass on what you learn. Pay it forward, helping everyone along the way.Buy tools and software that can make your work easier or time-saving, and even learn how to outsource jobs that can be done by someone else.

Most importantly, do not be scared to fail! This is how you become stronger and more knowledgeable in many other areas that help you succeed. Do not compare yourself to anyone you perceive to be better than yourself. You have your own skill set which will be valuable to someone. The best qualification you can have as an employee of your very own business is to never ever quit. Success is always right around the corner…lol.

In order to master your business you must create a step by step system that you can complete over and over again, creating success modules that walk you up each level of achievement. Before you know it, you are successful…earning an income…and teaching others. When you have enough time and money on your hands that you can affect the world for the better, this is when you know you have accomplished Mastery!

Bloggers Roadmap – My Review!

bloggers-roadmapEveryone should have a blog online, it’s the most important site you will ever create bar none. It helps your readers connect with you and find out what you’re really about. If done right you can generate traffic, build your income and make massive profits while creating an army of followers.

However, there is a problem? Not everyone knows how to start a blog that is going to bring these sort of results. You see so many people starting blogs, posting a few articles and then giving up due to lack of traffic, content, comments etc. This happens because those people are doing it wrong.

So when I found out that blogging expert, Dan Sumner had put together a comprehensive guide called The Bloggers Roadmap I had to find out more. After reading The Bloggers Roadmap from cover to cover here are my thoughts.

First of all let’s look at the product.

The Bloggers Roadmap is a complete guide to setting up and profiting from your very own blog. It’s a 27,000 word eBook that Daniel has poured everything he knows about blogs and blogging into a single guide. It’s very well written and covers everything you need to know.

Throughout the guide Dan has added tons of ‘blog tips’ to give you more ideas and I must say these are great little additions.

There is also a collection of video tutorials created by Dan which you can access as an extra investment. Again, these are well presented and walk you through the actual physical process of setting up your own blog, although the videos are not a requirement, if you feel you are a beginner in the blogging world they would probably help you get more from the product. So I must say they are more than worth the investment.

Who is this product for?

This product is for anyone that owns their own blog or wants to learn how to create and profit from their own blog. As this product only focuses on blogging if you don’t own a blog or never intend to then this product would be no good to you as it only covers blogging techniques. However, anyone who owns a blog or wants to learn how to create one can’t fail to benefit from this content as it covers everything you need to know in a step by step manner.

Does it work?

The fact Daniel has built a considerable blog following would make me say yes, after all if you create a product about blogging you better have a successful blog yourself.

Negatives.

The only real negative I can find is you have to pay more for the video training, however I feel this is actually done with the customers interests at heart as the eBook is so reasonably priced on it’s own at a currently discounted $9.95. Daniel has considered this and understands not everyone will want the extra training and those that do will only have to pay a small premium. Again.. This has amazing value and is more than worth this investment.

All in all is The Bloggers Roadmap is all you need for blogging success?

The answer is yes, as long as you are prepared to work at your blog, this is not a magic bullet and it does take work, but if you are prepared to put in a little effort I believe this is the finest blogging product you will ever find.

Blogging products are few and far between and this product is something you can refer to time and again to help you succeed in the blogging world and it comes with my highest recommendation.

I actually thought it was that good that I decided to offer an ADDITIONAL BONUS. The fact that I am taking the time and effort to do this should speak volumes about this product.

You can check out my BONUS here and also find out all about The Bloggers Roadmap from my bonus page too.

As usual, please feel free to share this if you found it useful and if you want to comment I’ll be happy to ‘personally’ reply to any comments.

Regards,

Dave.
