What do YOU trade for dollars?
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:
