I didn’t even mention traffic… cause it doesn’t matter.
Leads matter, sales matter, traffic – not so much.
How’s that, you ask?
Well, lots of traffic and no sales is nothing, though sales with even little traffic is money.
You need money, lots of it, getting traffic is easy, heck, you can even get 2 cent clicks on Facebook.
Don’t know if that’s the best way to explain it, but I think you get what I’m saying.
let me tell you how to get leads and money.
You might get a little disappointed, but it’s not easy.
I know you have read a million articles how to utilize social media to get free leads, or how to use forums, or how to comment on blogs, or send emails to famous people and things like that… that will work if people know who you are, if not, you will probably just waste your time.
The first thing you need to do is market yourself.
Why do people love Virgin so much?
Because the owner – sir Richard Branson is one cool cat.
Once people start recognizing you, they will start following you all over the place.
Here’s what you need to do.
1 Team up with a fellow marketer and create an info product
You can do this all by yourself, but it’s always better to work with a business partner.
Nothing positions you better than info products, even if they are crap… but I’m sure you already knew it’s not a good idea to sell crap, although so many people do… in fact, most marketers do. I’d rather change lives though, I know you are like that too (you are reading this blog, you have to be cool).
2 Open a Jvzoo seller account
List your product to get people to promote it.
Make your affiliate page awesome so that more people would want to promote your product, you know, show other people who have already made $10k (that’s what everybody wants to make) as your affiliates, show testimonials, run contests, show the winners and the like.
3 Put up a membership site and giveaway your product to your affiliates
Tell people they would be the beta testers, and charge a lot for your product. People appreciate expensive, even if you don’t have a lot of sales, you will get a ton of happy affiliates.
4 Sit back and enjoy the fame.
You’d already be popular and have a gazillion emails to market to.
People would be thankful for your giveaway, but they would also feel special for being a part of the beta testers group… which is a sure recipe for creating raving fans that will be happy to buy from you and follow you forever.
Once you are famous, you can set up your blog and optimize it for lead generation.
Here’s what you need to do
Before I list the steps, you should know running a blog is expensive, hard and takes a lot of work and articles. It takes a lot of reading too (to be able to write those articles).
Running a blog is not that different from running a real business, most people think a blog is just a platform to write once a week and get a ton of traffic, sadly it doesn’t work like that… you have to really like blogging (or at least be crazy like me LOL) to come up with tons of content to publish and promote.
When I started this blog I built links manually for a year, maybe more, I don’t really remember.
I also slept about 4-5 hours each night and worked the rest of the time non stop (wrote dumb articles, went back to update them, read everything I could about traffic and how to write entertaining content etc. etc)… and I’m not even gonna go that deep and talk about all the coding and shit (no, you can’t just upload a theme and forget about it, it won’t get too crazy results, you have to tweak it and make it awesome and fast).
At the end it pays out the world though.
So here’s what you need to do:
1 Host your site with WP Engine
Go to the tools section to see why:
In short, cheap 3 dollar hosting sucks big time, you site will be down, slow and never good enough for the fist page of Google.
2 Learn how to write articles everybody would want to read, this will help:
3 Optimize your blog for leads and leads only, NOT for comments and useless shit
Don’t get mad now, I know how it sounds… you need leads and you need to convert people fast, because they get distracted way too fast.
Read this article to optimize the crap out of your blog:
Now that you are famous and have a blog, you need to learn how to sell… and this is where this article is about to get wild.
Look, creating cool products, blogging or being famous is nothing without selling.
Don’t tell me you already knew that… everybody knows it, but only a few are rich, it’s not enough to just know it.
I’m gonna tell you one thing, if you get it, you are sorted… you will sell as much as you want and live on the beach (if you want to of course, I don’t like the beach that much).
We buy based on emotion and justify with logic.
I’ll leave you think about that for a while and I’ll go workout.
