Tips & Advice on Online Lead Generation For Your Home Based Business
Someone asked me for money recently.
I have a standard answer when it comes to lending money, and that answer is:
It’s not that I don’t care or don’t want to help them.
It’s just that I know from experience that most people will not pay you back, and you’ll then have to waste even more money (in the form of your time) following up to remind them.
So in today’s email I want to give you 6 critical strategies to making your first million online.
But before I get to that, a quick update…
I’m actually in San Jose, Costa Rica for the night. I drove up from the MOBE Resort (which is about 2 hours away) to spend the day looking for furniture, tiles, and plants for the gardens.
We are just a few weeks out from opening and so I really needed to get this done. It should have been done months back, but I didn’t like the prices I was being quoted by all the architects and interior designers (who add on huge margins), so I decided to go to the sources direct.
For the past few days I’ve been here in Costa Rica with some of the top affiliates in my company – people who’ve made a minimum of 6 figures online. Some of them have made 7 figures (3.7m for one guy, 2.5m for another, and a third has made over 17m with me since starting back in 2013!).
Each morning we’re masterminding and sharing what’s working in our business’s – and then in the afternoons heading out for fun activities. Like yesterday we went on ATVs (these 4 wheeler motorbikes) through a jungle, and today we’re going on a sunset cruise.
But these sessions we’re doing in the morning are incredible. I’m always a student first, so I too am getting a lot of good ideas.
Greetings from Costa Rica! I’ve been here for the past few days at the new MOBE Resort. The place has changed a lot. Last time I was here was late last year.
Each day there’s over 85 workers scurrying around trying to get the renovations done for our grand opening. Everything’s happening at the same time. Roll on lawns are covering 8 acres of dirt. Kitchens are being built. Bathrooms are being retiled. Trucks are coming in and out with delivery’s.
It’s been awhile since I sent you a live broadcast. Things have been insanely busy here (which they always are—but that’s just how I like it!).
It’s midnight here and tomorrow morning I’m getting on a plane for Fiji. I should probably go pack at some point!
I’m going to Fiji to look for MOBE’s second resort, where we can host more of our Titanium, Platinum, and Diamond masterminds.
After a couple days there, it’s on to Costa Rica, where I’ll be based for almost 2 months at our first resort, doing back to back events.
“Income-On-Demand” – I first heard those words in 2009 on one of the first info products I ever bought.
It was one of Dan Kennedy’s products, and he was telling the story of how after almost 20 years of marriage, he went through an unexpected divorce.
Very quickly, half his assets within 18 months.
How? Because he had the best type of asset you can have; you’re own highly responsive list.
So the first thing they tell you when you go in search of a few extra dollars online, is you must “learn how to promote other people’s offers as an affiliate.” That is, learn how to drive traffic to a website.
Some of the people who click end up buying… and you get paid.
Next, they tell you to start building a list. A list of email addresses which you can email at any time, and produce ‘income-on-demand.’
What usually happens though for most, is somewhere between the 0 – 3,000 email subscriber count, email marketing can be very ‘hit and miss.’
Some days you’ll get the odd sale. But then you can go for weeks… with nothing. Nada. Zilch!
And it can be very frustrating. I remember being at this stage somewhere myself, back in 2010.
You can now get WiFi Millionaire right here.
I’ve put a lot of effort into writing this guide, and I know you’re going to get a LOT out of it.
Here’s a common question I get all the time …
“If I want to start an online business and have no prior experience, and I’m not naturally good at the technical side of things—can I really do this?”
First of all, lets be very clear.
We are not in the coding, or website building, or even internet marketing business.
We are actually in the direct response marketing business.
Have you ever known someone who always has incredible ideas for making money, or making changes in their business to take things to the next level?
The greatest entrepreneurs in the world all have this ability; to out-think and out-innovate their competitors.
When I was first starting MOBE, it was coming up with those big ideas which really got us the initial momentum.
Back in those days, I’d fall to sleep listen to my Dan Kennedy audios.
In one of his lessons he said that as a business owner, you can look around at what everyone else in your niche is doing to get your ideas. And this is what most do.
Before you know it, everyone is copying each other, and you have an entire industry of look-alike business’s.
But every so often a business will come along with entirely new, innovative ideas which completely change the rules of the game…
