I just got back from the gym. Man, it feels GREAT to be able to get
back on cardio. Now, I don’t know if I can do the treadmill again
or not. We’ll see. I hope I can.
But are you on the WRONG kind of treadmill?
The one where you trade time for dollars instead of products?
So the question is, do you trade products for dollars or time?
If it’s your own personal time, how do you break out of the trap?
Well, you gotta:
1. Have a product or products to sell
2. Promote the products
So which comes first? The chicken or the egg? Creating products
or building a list?
The fact is, some people simply get stuck creating a product. They
just don’t seem to be able to get it done. If that’s YOU, then I
recommend you go on and start building a list and selling affiliate
products until you get the guts, expertise or confidence to create
your own product.
However, I’m a huge advocate of having your own product.
This is one thing that separates me from other marketers. Most
other marketers KNOW creating a product is a sticking point for a
lot of people. So they sing the old song and dance about how
you don’t need products at all.
I beg to differ.
So what about you?
Are you still driving to work every morning and fighting the rush
hour traffic going home? Is your commute 30 or 45 minutes longer
than it needs to be?
Do you get tired of having someone else tell you what to do all
If you do, then why not put the pedal to the metal and get your
own product, your own list and start rocking and rolling?
Last week on my Ateam call, I told about a simple little Twitter
method about anyone can use to build a list of 500 people in a few
If you’re on the Ateam, I’ll be posting that audio in the Ateam
community area this weekend.
Anyway, you CAN build a list.
You really can.
You CAN send out emails that sell either your own product or an
affiliate product. But here’s the key:
If you’re selling an affiliate product, do a little Camtasia video
that shows how YOU used the product and what it did for you. You
can do up some little Power Point or Open Office (free) slides.
Or, if it’s something web based, you can show live screen video.
At the end of the video, you redirect through your affiliate URL.
Now send the video to your list!
It doesn’t have to be any more complicated than that.
Right now I’m testing out a a new method that gets clicks for 1-2
cents each. High quality clicks worth up to a buck each.
Maybe you’re stuck researching your target market. I know on my
Ateam call last week, one lady was just STUCK doing this and
overwhelmed with it.
I showed her how to get it done in 1-2 weeks. It doesn’t need
to take forever.
Building a list doesn’t need to take forever.
Have you been blogging? If you have, then you have enough content
to put together a free ebook you can advertise in ezines, banner
ads and so forth.
Anyway, I’ve gotta hop in the shower, run down and see how Danny
and Sean are doing on our totally rockin’ new Mini Evergreen Traffic
This is totally exciting.
I can’t wait to tell you about it.
P.S. Try out my Ateam for ONLY a buck and you’ll get the audio
where I talk about how to get 500 people on your list in only a
few days. And also how to get your target market research done in
only 1 or 2 weeks:
Today I conducted a very important call to create a product.
We recorded it with TWO different companies in case one failed. One got NO recording. The other dropped the call 1/2 way through.
So now I’m searching around for info on taking the audio from the phone to our digital hybrid (see jkaudio.com). That lets you run the sound from the phone over to your external sound card called an Edirol, which is a MUCH higher quality sound card than the one on your computer. If I recall, it also boosts the power.
We put THAT feed into our hard drive.
Total junk. That leaves me scratching my head why two services dropped our call. I pay $300 a month to one service, so it isn’t cheap. They flat out didn’t get a recording at all.
Great product ideas are born this way — out of frustration. If you’re frustrated about it, create a product or a podcast on it! Most of the blogs talk about recording phone calls using Skype. Yeah, and what it there’s a blip in the line? No more podcast! That’s professional! Although, frankly, I had the same problem today since I’m on some kind of Internet voip reseller long distance something or the other.
I’m giving up and getting an Iphone so I can run my Internet Marketing business from Starbucks! That’s right. With Iphone and a Mac, you have Internet access anywhere! How cool is that? Barnes and Noble. Borders. I’m there baby!
I called my friend Declan Dunn who is a podcasting expert. I’m sure he can tell me why my hook up sounds like junk.
Today we also upgraded to WordPress 2.5 dot whatever. The latest version. I read on Podcasting Alley that Podpress does work on it, although I believe there are a few question marks about it. Ultimate Tag Warrior as I understand it doesn’t work.
If you have an interest in Podcasting, those two tools plus Feedburner.com are requirements.
I’m re-launching “The Red Factor.”
This is the first time it has been available for purchase since
The first 97 people will get special access to my RF8
Matrix that exposes secret low hanging fruit in virtually ANY
I’m “blowing out” “The Red Factor” digital edition for $97.00
but only until Monday. That’s a $200 savings!
P.S. All existing Red Factor owners will receive a recording of
the RF8 Matrix call as long as the recording is successful.
