Find proven business model and leverage it.
This is the biggest secret of making money online.
Be smart. Learn from others mistakes, not from yours. Don’t make them (I know that is not always possible).
*** Let’s see what experts in internet marketing say (by Michelle Pescosolido)
“The majority of people who start a business online need to make money within a few months and they don’t have a year to make that happen.
For those of you with money lined pockets, good for you! Yes, you probably have the time, resources and money to actually take time to get a blog in place, work on branding, create your own product and sales funnels. In fact you could spend an entire year doing that, and yes it probably would take that long.
Unfortunately those of you that don’t fall into that category should realize that there is a very easy way to start making money online and it’s called LEVERAGE.”
You think you need to have blog built before you can start making money online. You don’t need a blog to get started with making money online. Even if you did build a blog yourself or you get one made by an outsourcer like Thrive Theme (I recommend to check it out here) , you are still missing one key component …
First: Leverage the proven business system.
Without the knowledge of how to actually drive traffic to your blog, you are just going to have a pretty piece of real estate with no visitors. Without traffic you won’t make any money.
***NOTE: (I know that you might have heard: traffic is not a problem, you need landing page or sales funnel that converts… Just read on further)
Trust me on this one…..I fell into this trap when I first started out. I was excited about having an blog to brand myself and the day I finished that blog it dawned on me, “Umm now what? How do I get traffic here?” (see next posts about traffic – soon, this topic never ends)
- You think you need to create your own bootcamp, ebook, video series, and/or funnel in order to make money online. When I first started out I saw “other” successful “gurus” had their own branded bootcamps, video series, and ebooks. Naturally I thought I needed one too. Well after wasting months of trying to perfect my video series, in the end I just scratched the whole project because I was just unhappy at how mine turned out, compared to the “other” successful marketers. Oh and not to mention I was missing one thing, once again…..TRAFFIC.
- You think you need to have your own capture page video, thank you page video and your own follow up email sequence in place before you can start to make money online. If you haven’t noticed yet…..so far all these require a huge time commitment in set up mode, not money making mode. And remember, as I said: We need money online at least within few months. If you are anything like me, I am talking this took me months! Busy work I like to call it. There are short cuts and in just a moment I am going to share the one word to creating that short cut.
- You think you need to create your own product to start making money online. Okay while having a product can be very profitable, understand that it’s the people who actually have some sort of credibility, brand awareness, authority all ready set up in their marketing niche. I’ll never forget a colleague of mine who had an awesome idea for a product. She spent about 6 months planning it out and creating the ENTIRE product only for it to bomb. Six months wasted on an awesome idea that didn’t make her a dime because she did not master a few things, branding, credibility and traffic within her marketing niche.
You see all of these have 1 thing in common, they all take you away from immediately making money online. I will repeat again: The majority of people who start a business online need to make money within a few months and they don’t have a year to make that happen.
Some top earners when started out hit 10K a month after just being online for only 6 months because they were leveraging. No blog, no list, no branded video series, no branded funnel, no product, no fans and no list. Nope… just one offer that was created by a proven successful marketing system that we used to drive traffic too. That’s how we were able to hit that 6 figure income in just 6 months.
And you can too.
We leverage several things with this business model:
- Their highly trained phone sales team who handle all the coaching calls and closing calls for us. All we do is collect on the commissions.
- Their live events where sales are made for us. They front the work and expense and we collect on the commissions.
- Their email follow up series. They write all the emails that are high converting and our sales are made on automation.
- Their offers, systems, and sales funnels. They spend the time to put together high converting offers, systems and funnels and we just drive traffic to those offers and we collect on the commissions.
- They provide all the training for the brand new partners. They have a system in place along with coaches who provide all the training and we can stay focused on building our business and driving traffic.
- And much much more….
It starts with finding a proven business model or system to leverage. The only thing you should have to focus on is traffic which will be your quickest route to making money online.
