Tips & Advice on Online Lead Generation For Your Home Based Business
This may be a little off topic, but go with me here for a second …
(He’s just 22-years old and making over $100,000 a month.)
Can you ride a bicycle?
How did you learn to ride a bike?
YES, you were taught! And even though you may not have ridden one in years, you know you still can, right?
Making money—making millions online—is no different!
I just got off the phone …
“I made $130,000 last week. Matt, I was making money even while I slept …
Oh, by the way … I make $130,000 EVERY week!” He said …
Yes, that’s EXACTLY what my friend told me when I talked with him yesterday!
$130,000 a month = $520,000 a month = $6.7 million a year!
Imagine you go in to McDonald’s, and you order just one Big Mac. What’s the next question they usually ask you?
They say “Would you like fries or a drink with that?” And if you say yes, then they ask, “Would you like to upgrade to a Medium or Large?” If you say yes, of course they’ll upgrade your order and give you fries or a large drink.
All the employees are trained to ask these questions and ‘upsell’ every customer, and McDonald’s requires it’s employees to try to sell more food to all of their customers.
As for me, I definitely have some experience in this in the last seven years. There are people out there who like to trash MOBE, trash talk me, and definitely trash our products.
Often, when you’re reading these bad reviews (fake reviews), down at the bottom, after they’re done trashing you or other people, of course they conveniently recommend their own solution. It’s just going to happen a lot, so that’s the first thing you need to accept.
When you become successful in this industry—as an affiliate marketer or ‘instant guru’—and you start building a brand for yourself, a lot of these people will come along and start talking trash about you.
I was talking with my friend Susan from New South Wales, and she asked, “Matt, I have young kids, should I teach them to be entrepreneurs or to go to school and get very good grades?”
This is a very good question, and it’s ironic Susan is from South Wales, because right now I’m in the small town of Life Valley, Australia, where I actually grew up. The town has a population of only about 15 people, and the nearest city is about 30 minutes away.
Right now I’m standing at the end of the driveway of my old house—in the spot we got picked up by the school bus every morning.
Hola from Costa Rica.
It’s been awhile … let me bring you up to speed on what’s been happening.
I’ve now been here for the last 2 months. When I flew over, I intended to be here for 3 weeks … maybe 4 weeks tops.
But, finishing up the MOBE Resort has taken a lot longer than I anticipated.
I was recently talking with my friend Karen, from Oxford in the UK, and she had a very good question I’ve been getting a lot lately. Here was Karen’s question …
“If I’m not technical, so how can I build an online business?”
This is a very good question, especially if you feel like you are not very technical.
We have many people who come in and get involved with our affiliate program, but many of them are baby boomers. They didn’t grow up with computers like Millennials, and a lot of them are just not very technical.
Not being good with computers becomes a very real barrier for many people—at least in their mind.
But here’s the thing …
Recently, one of my friends asked me a very interesting question …
“In the online business industry, there are so many different tasks to multitask and products to promote, so how do you stay focused, prioritize your time, and schedule yourself to stay on track and accomplish everything that needs to get done?”
If you have an online business, and you’re having trouble staying focused, don’t worry, because its something we ALL struggle with. Trust me, I struggle to stay focused throughout the day myself.
Even at the seven-figure level, I still get distracted constantly with all the normal things Facebook and YouTube. So here are …
Here’s a question I get all the time, and it’s a very common misconception in our industry.
“When you’re first starting out in this industry and want to send emails to a customer, who is the ideal customer? And should you take a laser-like approach, or be a lot more general and target everybody?”
This is a good question, because I hear it all the time.
The most common misconception about your target audience …
One common technique the ‘gurus’ use in seminars is this concept that you need a perfect customer ‘avatar.’ Here’s this person that you’re going to be marketing to.
And they tell the people in the seminar, they say, “Write out who your customer avatar is, and then all your marketing should be targeted just towards that person only.”
But this is actually really bad advice, and I’ll tell you why …
