Hi guys, how’s your 30-day blogging challenge coming along?
Are you actually DOING it, or are you being lazy about it? 😉 I know sometimes it’s difficult to get started and keep yourself motivated (especially if it’s not something you’re familiar with), but this post will hopefully motivate you to get started and to KEEP GOING after you’ve begun..
There are essentially 2 ways that I use, and have used extensively in the past, in order to build a consistently growing business (and income) on the internet. After you read this you might just realize how much you’re over-complicating things..
I mentioned in a previous post that if you know how to make money with email and a sales funnel, you will always be able to make money in this industry. .. And if you don’t know how, everything else you try to do will be SO much more difficult.
So let’s get to it..
What I’ve always looked for in online marketing is ways to sell and recruit in the most automated and quickest way possible. I mean, isn’t that why we do this on the internet? It’s quicker, and automation is right there at our fingertips…
In internet marketing, no matter what excuses you make, there are 2 things you need to do:
- Create content
What do they do?
Essentially, they take care of the short term, and the long term aspects of creating wealth online.
Advertising allows you to focus on building your list quickly, and making sales. Instant traffic, instant leads, instant sales. This is where your cashflow and lead generating is concentrated.
Creating Content is where you focus on the long term aspect of building your business and the relationships connected to your business. This is where “trust” is developed, and where the big, long term money is generated.
Simple: Advertising creates money/cash flow, Creating Content generates long term wealth. Tie them together through social media and you’re laughing.
Now, the first method (Advertising) is usually where people get stuck, right?
Where do I advertise? What do I advertise? How much $$ will it cost me? How much $$ SHOULD it cost me? What results should I expect? How do I know if it’s working?
.. All valid questions.
Actually, the second method (creating content) is a sticking point as well..
How do I create content? What do I write about? How do I setup a blog? How often do I create? How do I deliver it?
All valid questions as well.
So, to make this easy to understand, there are 2 methods that I use that I have been very successful at over the years in creating wealth on the internet that cover Advertising and Content Creation quickly and easily.
- Advertising = Solo Ads
- Creating Content = Blogging
By far, the easiest, quickest, and “push button-est” way to generate leads cheaply, is running solo ads. Period.
Ultimately, here’s what happens: You create your offer, you run the ad, you get leads, you make money. Most of the time you don’t even have to write the ad yourself! You just give them your URL and in a few days your list gets bigger. If you do it right, it will cost you $0.00. (nothing!).
So if generating hundreds of leads to your contact list every week for FREE sounds good to you, I can provide you with the shortcuts to doing this right.
Hint: Join my list up there in the top left under my picture and I’ll let you know when I put the last 3 “shortcut” videos together on effective solo ad marketing.
On to creating content..
Yep, blogging is the way. Seems obvious and simple but it needs to be done. Your blog is where you focus on building your online presence and your own “brand”. What you’re doing is creating value for your readers which puts you in the position of being the “go-to” person for your area of expertise.
To some of you, this whole blogging thing may seem complicated and time-consuming, but if you know how to do it, it’s really quite simple and doesn’t take that much time at all. And the REWARDS can be massive!
Again: Join my list above and I can get you the RIGHT information on how to “shortcut” this whole process..
So, in a nutshell, those are the 2 ways to generating a huge income on the internet.
Here’s how it all comes together:
You start blogging and running solo ads that are relevant to what you’re talking about on your blog. Your ads generate leads (and sales), and your followups to your list direct people to your blog. Your blog creates value for your list and keeps them interested in what you’re talking about. You make more sales and business connections through your blogging, which of course generates more revenue for you to run more (and bigger) ads. You run more ads, generating more leads to your list, point them to your blog… etc..
Sound confusing?? It might sound that way right now, but it’s really not. Keep it simple and you’ll win.
That’s how I’ve done it for years, and it’s working out pretty good for me 🙂
