How to Overcome Limiting Beliefs

How to Overcome Limiting Beliefs

The secret of success is learning how to use pain and pleasure instead of having pain and pleasure use you. If you do that, you’re in control of your life. If you don’t; life controls you.  – Tony Robbins All too often, I see people doubt themselves. This inevitably results in them never taking action and never being a success they had initially dreamed and aspired to become. In this video, I explain a simple little exercise to overcome that negative way of thinking.   Share...
10 Myths About Making Money Online (Part 2)

10 Myths About Making Money Online (Part 2)

In the last article, (10 Myths Part 1), I went over 5 myths about making money online. I discussed product creation. I talked a little about coaching. I even explained why “Push Button Software” is a crock. So to conclude this 2 part series, here are the last 5 myths I wanted to cover. Myth #6 – Solo Ads Are a Cheap Way to Get Traffic For those of you who aren’t familiar with what a solo ad is. Here’s a brief summary. You pay a solo ad vendor for “clicks”. These clicks represent the solo ad vendor’s subscribers “clicking ” on a link that they send to them. So essentially, if you were to pay let’s say $70 for 200 clicks. You’re asking the vendor to deliver your email/his message with your link to enough people where you’d receive 200 clicks. In other words, you are paying them $70 to have 200 eyes view your offer. It sounds pretty lucrative. You pay money, get people to see your offer and convert them into leads which convert them into sales. That’s actually how I started my marketing career nearing the beginning. I used solo ads all the time. Here’s Why It’s a Myth: Now, I never said Solo Ads WON’T work. They can and they do. In fact, I will still do a solo ad now and again to test an offer to get a general idea on how it may convert. But solo ads aren’t cheap. You may see solo ads for $10. You may see cheap click offers, etc. But at the end of the day, the quality...

10 Myths About Making Money Online (Part 1)

Over the next two articles, I wanted to cover 10 Myths About Making Money Online. I know I tend to be a little prejudice towards the Warriorforum… but seriously, when it comes to what NOT to do in internet marketing; it’s laden with perfect examples. These myths aren’t necessarily in any particular order. All of these myths, if truly believed to be fact; will help you never succeed in online marketing. So if never making a dime online floats your boat, by all means visit the Warriorforum and buy a few WSOs (like I did my first 9 months struggling to make any money). With that said, carry on my wayward son. There is peace when the reading’s done. Myth #1 – You Can Make Thousands of Dollars a Month Through Micro Niche Sites For those of you who aren’t familiar with what these are…be thankful. Here’s a summary of what a Micro Niche Site is: You find a niche. This niche could be for furniture for example. You then find a “sub-niche” around furniture. It could be a specific brand of furniture. Or perhaps furniture only made in a specific country, etc. You decide on your niche by doing research and factoring in what sites are ranked on the first page of Google for it. If the niche seems viable, you start building a site. So let’s say after researching, I came up with the micro niche of Stressless Furniture (I’m adding the manufacturer’s link here out of respect. They do make wonderful furniture lol). With that niche, I decide to make a quick blog site via wordpress with...
Successful Marketers Know This One Life-Changing Tip

Successful Marketers Know This One Life-Changing Tip

Let me set the stage if you will. You’re sick and tired of working for someone who doesn’t appreciate you. You’re tired of not making the money you feel you deserve…so you have an idea. You think to yourself, “Maybe there’s a way to make money online.” You get online, you start doing some research. You start looking at forums, websites, message boards. You take notes, you reach out to people and you peruse products. But most (if not all) of these products have the same message: “Make Money Online with as Little Work as Possible.” So you have high hopes, you invest money. You scour the product over and over again. You get excited. You get motivated. You get focused. You apply what you learn….and? You have absolutely nothing to show for it. No money, no progress, no results…only wasted time. You start asking yourself, “There’s got to be something I’m missing. What the hell are these guys doing to make all this money that I’m not?” Well, I’m here to tell you the answer. Are you ready? Read/listen closely… They are making money because they are selling you THEIR product. I ask that you read that above sentence again. Because it is truth. It is justice. It is law. (I like being dramatic). So the question still remains, “What am I doing wrong?” My dear readers, the above sentence is answering that question for you. You see, nearly all of these product are promoting these generic, “Get Rich. Make Money Overnight. Work From Home” piles of steamy dookie that you’ve been researching and studying so diligently. I’m...
How Keurig Gave Me Marketing Concepts for Internet Marketing…

How Keurig Gave Me Marketing Concepts for Internet Marketing…

So there’s a Keurig coffee maching that came out that’s a newer model. The price tag on it is $200+ (depending on where you get it). I am now a proud owner of a Keurig. But this isn’t about buying a coffee machine… It’s about marketing concepts for internet marketing… You see, ever since the Keurig machines have come out, I thought they were cool. But I could never justify buying one. It wasn’t because they were too expensive. Or because I didn’t want one. It was because I drink WAY too much coffee and I’d end up spending easily 40-50 bucks a week on their coffee packs.To me, it doesn’t matter how much money I make. I don’t like the idea of wasting money. So now we fast forward to my bachelor party. I ended up getting all of my groomsmen specific gifts to our friendship. One of those gifts was a Keurig. Symbolizing the late nights at a local restaurant we spent together drinking coffee. He was very happy with the gift and told me he had wanted one for ages. I told him that I could never get one for the reasons I mentioned above. He then told me that Keurigs have adapters that are reusable that I can use my own coffee in them. WHAT!? I immediately had a NEED for a Keurig. So I went out and bought one. The moral of this story is that a $15 solution gave me a NEED to buy a $200 piece of equipment. And that my friends, is precisely why it is like Internet Marketing. Many people see a product that they KNOW can benefit them. But there’s...
The Difference Between Knowledge and Wisdom

The Difference Between Knowledge and Wisdom

It was September 13th, 1993.   It was infamously dubbed “Mortal Monday”. Why? Because the most vicious and violent game created (at the time) “Mortal Kombat” was coming out on 16-bit consoles (SNES and Sega Genesis). For some, it was just another game. For me? It was one of the most anticipated events for an 11 year old kid such as myself. It had blood, gore, action, finishing moves and lifelike graphics. (It was 1993, these graphics were freakin’ amazing.) They even had a video that promoted “Mortal Monday” that I’ll share at the bottom of this post. One of the most famous quotes in the game was: “There is no knowledge that is not power.” I always thought that sounded so cool. And it seemed valid. But in reality, now that I’m older and (somewhat) wiser. I realized that quote isn’t quite accurate. Indeed, most knowledge is power…but ONLY if you apply it. Knowledge means NOTHING if you never use it. So the difference between knowledge and wisdom is this: Knowledge is the acquiring of information. It’s what you learn, it’s what you remember. Wisdom is the application of knowledge. So let’s apply this to marketing. If you were like me a year ago. You have ALL the knowledge you need to start being successful online. You probably know how to write an email. You probably understand how a squeeze page works. You probably even know how to create a blog post. But are you applying that knowledge? Are you using it day to day to reach your marketing goals? The bottom line, is that you’re a lot farther...
