ENDED: Post Your Obstacles! $100 CASH To The Most Thanked Post!
Share on:

Hey everyone,

Obstacles or "road blocks" can make or break you. Especially in an industry such as ours.

I've come across many obstacles I've had to overcome. Some easy, some hard. At the end of the day however almost every obstacle I overcame involved getting advice from a friend.

So here's the contest:

Post your biggest obstacle while also answering and giving advice as to how to overcome the obstacle of the person who has posted directly ABOVE you.

So in your post you should tell your obstacle, and then give advice to the person above you about how they can overcome their obstacle or road block.

Pretty simple, right?

You don't have to be successful online or a phycologist to help out the poster above you. Simply tell them what your opinion is, sometimes someone just taking the time to share their opinion is all someone needs.

If you want to address more than one person feel free to do so ALL IN ONE POST by using the incredibly handy multi-quote button.

If, later on in the thread, you want to answer someone's obstacle that's fine but please put another one of your own obstacles in your post to them so the game can keep running smoothly.

If you find a post made by someone else helpful in anyway please THANK the person by pressing the "thanks" button.

...On New Years Day I'll look through and count all the thanked posts and whoever has the most thanked posts will win $100 to their PayPal account.

(If you don't have a PayPal account unfortunately you can't win, I don't want to get into sending checks, etc)

Remember that the more helpful, thoughtful, detailed and considerate you are the more thanks you will probably get!

Cheers!

Zach

P.S - Feel free to thank me. This post, and any other post I make in this thread, will not be counted towards the contest.

P.P.S - If you can please put "My advice:" and then "My obstacle:" so people can clearly see your answer and then your obstacle and help you out!

My obstacle:

Not having enough time in the day to get everything I want to get done done.

What are some of your favourite time management/saving techniques?

My advice:

Maybe it's time to hire a full time project manager/managers, so it would free up your time to focus on more strategic plans. It works well in offline world, it should work here as well.
Also, take look at this thread:
http://www.warriorforum.com/mind-war...?highlight=iva

I personally learned a lot from that report, and there is a section there talking about leveraging your time, that I found very informative. Here is a part of it related to your obstacle.

Millionaire Mindset Trait #14: Delegate tasks and leverage your time as much as possible.

"Millionaires really understand the importance of becoming good at delegating tasks and leveraging their time by doing so. It wasn’t that I was lazy, rather I just couldn’t do certain things and I really wanted to keep moving forward. Hiring others enabled me to do this.

You really want to get good at delegating at least some of your work to other people, especially when you start making some money. That’s one of the best ways to reinvest into your business. You want to start looking for ways to put your entire business on auto pilot so that other people are doing virtually all the tasks for you – this way your business continues to grow whether you are there or not. Grasping this principle is extremely important. There’s only one of you, so leverage your time by utilizing many other people."

Just want to emphasize that it was written by Mark Ling and I am not taking any credit for it. I just thought it might be useful to share.

My obstacle:

Not having a mentor or even somebody you trust to brainstorm ideas with.

Send me a PM if you have any questions.

One of the biggest obstacles in this IM game is TIME!

Not having enough time in the day to develop new products and to promote those new products. IM products need constant promotion, most people barely have enough time to promote their products, and create new products.

One solution is to outsource the creation and the promotion of your products. This outsourcing may seem like an expense at the time but it quickly turns into a wise investment - it frees up more time for you to get more creative with your ideas and products and allows greater expansion of your overall business. Next time you get an idea, pass it on (outsource the development of it) as you brainstorm other ideas you have while your first idea is in development. So your idea is in motion without your TIME! as you consider your other ideas

Think Globally!
Think of Continuous Expansion!
Think of Outsourcing!

I believe that one of the biggest and most time consuming obstacles for me at least, when I first started and probably for the majority of all IM newbies - is:

MY OBSTACLE

The Sales Funnel

The whole process of the website that has your product or service to the secure delivery of your product or service. Which includes the following things.

1. A nice webpage to promote your product or service

2. An "Add to Cart Button" that is linked to a secure and affordable, easy to set-up file storage and delivery system.

3. All the necessary systems that have to be working and inplace from the web-page to the final delivery of your product/service to your customer or client.

4. I might add an helpdesk system also, since that is very important for customer service.

I had no one teach me any of this and for a long time never even knew about this forum. So I pieced together an affordable domain hosting, file storage and file delivery system and help desk from just studying and researching things online.
My main goal was to not spend more than $20.00 per month to do this.

Here is what I did and still use, which may help someone?
MY ADVICE

Domain Purchase: Godaddy (look for coupon deals)
Cost: around $7.00 perdomain per year

Hosting Service: Godaddy (most IM's do not like them, but they have done me very well. I will probably get a Hostgator reseller account soon)
Cost: around $6.97 per month. I have at this time more than 40 domains and more than 15 live websites hosted on this account. Its the Linux Deluxe Hosting Account.

File Storage: Box.net
Cost: Less than $9.00 per month (5GB of storage and lots of control)

Secure File Delivery System: Digivendor Pro (standalone php script that you install on your own server)
Cost: One time upfront fee for the script of $49.95 (sometimes can get a discount on it, its pretty simple to install if you can follow directions well - or they will install it I believe for a small fee)

Help Desk: HESK (free help desk system, that you install on your own server, works great)
Cost: FREE

Website: I have taught myself to build my own websites

My Product: I offer my graphic design services, minisite designs, ect... and graphic design products for internet marketers.

PayPal Account: The actual payment processor
Cost: A fee of around 2.9 % per transaction and I believe a flat fee of .30 cents per transaction

I have chose do this type of service and set-up for a few reasons:
#1 I enjoy designing and

#2 IM's need the services of a professional graphic designer.

So I thought it was a good fit.

The whole process above from researching and setting up my first product/service and sales funnel and customer service help desk took me around 6 months BECAUSE I had no help and did it all on my own.
It was a great learning experience and one that I would not trade, although it sure would have been nice for someone to tell me what I am writing in this post.........

Then the other OBSTACLE was how to tie all these services together into a fully functional sales funnel that was fully automated and worked.
Below is an attached image of how this basically flows, which should clear up some of the behind the scenes info that new IM's do not easily grasp or understand.

There are many other systems that can be used, such as Delavo, eJunkie, ect... on and on. But many of them are more complex, for example: Delavo is super complicated, eJunkie is not to hard but it's not a standalone system like mine. I do not pay for file delivery charges I own the script. While ejunkie charges a fee to store and deliver files

This system was set up to save me the most amount of money possible since I had hardly any when starting out for this venture.

My biggest obstacle is: Spending too much time building a biz or I should say rebuilding. The web requires that as it moves with the speed of lightning but it didn't help that my sites got fried. I waited too many years to move along with the changes and now i'm forced to rebuild and update and become "NEW" again in a sense. BUT too much building and not enough advertising and having products to promote doesn't add up to anything at all. I think I've sort of solved the problem as I am spending a little in order to have a automated business I can promote while I'm building. Also am using some elses product with master resell rights. And what that has done has freed me up to promote and build when I'm done promoting.

It can feel kinda agonizing in the inbetween stages where you really don't know what your obstacles are. But when you figure out how to beat them or keep pushing through till you
knock them out of the way. FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDOM!!!!!

Its too easy to quit. But if you don't it really feels good to breakthrough.

My Advice to your obstacle sounds simple – and indeed it is simple. Use the Wordpress platform and it's standard template for creating a commercial website. The large variety of plugins give such a website all the functions needed: message board, blog, chat, widgets etc.The standard template is customizable and allows for different languages and scripts as needed. This way you can have a 100% professionally looking website up in 24-48 hours.

My obstacle is: I haven't got enough ready cash to hire help for designing my websites and helping me with the workload.

My Advice
Exchange services for services then you don't need any cash.


My obstacle
I need to get my online forum going and I can't find any subscribers. People email me in private asking for advice in astrology and crystal healing, but won't sign up for my online forum. I've answered emails saying that questions will be answered only via the forum and still nobody will sign up. How can I get the first group of subscribers to sign up?

My obstacle: making my copy come alive for the target prospects so they read all of it and take the recommended action now!

My solution: use my inherent story-telling gifts to create believable scenarios and characters that prospects immediately identify with - then weave these threads throughout my sales copy until I reveal how the product or service solves the problem.

This works for me - in fact, it's so powerful, it took me months to learn how to rein in my too-vivid storytelling. This technique is one facet of selling, not the main focus!

(When I write scenarios or stories, I see them unfolding in my mind like a movie; then I just use words to describe what I see.)

My advice is to start a blog where you post your advice and collect leads. Every new post send a message to your list inviting comments. Eventually this will build the community aspect and when you can get over 100 comments per blog post, then send messages to your list about posts on your own forum. This is a natural progression that works.

My obstacles:

Using WiX to custom build msi databases!! I invested in installaware as I think this may be a solution, ultimately I am building brandable and customizable software and I need to my end users to be able to create their own installer packages. This way the tools are fully brandable including the install file path and any changes in registry keys, so they can change default search engines etc.

Learning XAML as quickly as possible so I can build a more 'user friendly' drag and drop interface for my software. WPF really is the way to go ti seems, there is just a bit of a learning curve especially since I hate design work and if you ask me this was made for designers and I swear microsoft did this to make you invest in their expression blend software.

Hi alfa_375,

ADVICE:

Confusion is a situation or state of the mind. It is similar to fear. It is destructive.

How to overcome it?

Focus on one thing that you are passionate and enthusiastic about. Draw a good business plan and follow it. Get a mentor or someone you can be accountable to sincerely/faithfully. Stop thinking about things turning out to be negative. Don't live in the past because you might not correct your past but you can create a bright future for yourself.

My Obstacle:

My greatest obstacle is my location. My location is the reason why some people can't do business with me. My location is the reason why I don't have my own PayPal account. My location is the reason why I can't join some investment programs. The list goes on and on.

I can only think of two solutions to your problem. The first and most obvious solution is emigrate. Many people move to different places on the globe for the sake of their careers or business'. But if you are a patriot and want to stay in your country and take part in building up the economy there, then try to find clients and business partners among travelling businessmen who visit your country regularly.

Advice:

Location and time zone can be a big problem for a lot of Warriors. My advice is to focus on things that aren't reliant on your location like SEO, PPC, PPV, etc.

No matter what you do in life you'll need to play to your strengths. If you strength isn't your location then local and other similar ways of making money will be more difficult.

But other methods aren't reliant on location and through proxies it really doesn't matter where one earth you are.

Obstacle:

Not necessarily to do with making money but I tend to spend a lot of time dilly-dallying on the internet, watching movies, etc and not being 100% productive.

What are some of your favourite ways to keep focused on work?

Confusion... Everyone is confused. However, if your confusion leads to you not being able to do anything at all, then I suggest you take one path, and follow it to conclusion. And by conclusion I do not mean just success, I mean success OR failure.

In fact take a product from someone you trust, follow it to the T, and see if it works. If it does, you know how to trust from then on. If not, ask them. If it still doesn't work, you get what you are looking for- clarity.

My advice- have a mentor who can talk to you personally. And have them tell you how to setup an online business.

That's alright. Like Zach said, either emigrate, or do something that is easy to do in your location. Look- internet is just a medium to connect people better. It is supposed to make things easier for you. If it doesn't use your skills in the line of career that is easiest and most convenient for you based on your conditions. For instance:

How is real estate in your location? Is it growing? Are there a lot of investors? Why not be a real estate sales person then? I do it occasionally. I sell real estate in and around Delhi-NCR, and get a hefty 5% commission from those easy sales.

Or what about website building? Are businesses around you wanting to build websites? Then for you in particular that is the easy way to make money, not an online run, online operated business.

Remember- being rigid in your ways will often lead to being stuck in tight spots. Be dynamic, like water, and you will achieve success.

Zach, that may not be as bad as you think it is. A little recreation here and there actually helps increase your productivity. However, if unchecked it can lead you down the path of destruction.

Unless you are wasting way too much time, I wouldn't worry about it. If you are wasting too much time, then I'd ask why is it that your work which you are supposed to be passionate about takes a back seat when it comes to idling around. Maybe you are not enjoying it as much as you think. Which might need a serious analysis.

Other than that- its alright if you waste a little time here and there. All of us do. However, maintaining a balance is what is required.

The main reason (apart from being in the wrong profession) for wasting too much time is that you might not be doing enough fulfilling things in your life. Such as partying or celebrating or playing sports, or musical recreation (I mean playing, not just listening to)

A lot of times people just associate themselves with their profession all the time. And then it collapses the healthy balance of activities. Maybe what you really need is- and I can't be sure since I don't know you personally- is just a bit more involvement in other activities of your life. Like spending time with your family, going out with friends, playing sports and instruments, learning dance. Basically arts that give oyu a much needed break from what you do all day long.

I personally strive to work less than 4 hours a day, and play at least 1 hour. I go out every other evening on a date, or to party with the friends.

And like I said above I even go out just to do some face to face selling which is a lot more fun than selling through words. My products are not created solo- I do all that with my friends. Sometimes recorded Skype video calls, sometimes webinars, and sometimes hiring studios together. Flying solo may be one of your problems too.

Zach, my advice to you would be- do things other than just sitting in front of a computer that you don't already do.

And if you don't have at least 3-4 core friends (not business friends, but intimate friends) that you spend at least 2 evenings with each week, then why is that?

I read your blog and I see that you have been blessed with a lot of creativity. Indeed your story telling skills show a lot of color and details. Your ability to picture in your mind's eye the different scenarios can make even the most boring and dull product come alive. Thank you for describing your source of inspiration and sharing your tricks of the copywriting trade with us.

Hi Zach - You have to set your priorities rather than relying on gimmicks to keep focused. Right now, watching movies and "dilly-dallying" are more important to you than being productive. When you change your priorities your behavior will follow.

What happens is, we get into comfort zones. If you were desperate, you would likely not wasted your time goofing off instead of working. You are comfortable in your current situation, perhaps not satisfied, but comfortable enough to place being entertained ahead of working toward your future success.

I'm sure you want success, so remember, each day you prioritize entertainment over productivity is one more day you delay the success you seek. Where we focus our attention today determines our future rewards. If your focus is on being entertained, your reward will be less time to build your dreams into reality.

No one can build your dreams into reality for you. If it is to be, it is up to you. What do you really want from life, Zach?

Decide. Then make it happen.

Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

the biggest obstacles for me is staying focussed on one thing and also thinking long term

I like webdesign and coding
i like things i can see instant results in
I can set up a page selling an ebook in five minutes
i can set up my autoresponder
i can set up a ecommerce site or a membership site

i can do this because i know the code to do so
I know if i do A B and C I will get D

But I fall down with marketing
I could write articles post on blogs submit my site to SM but none of this might work
I dont know and I find that hard to overcome

If i new this, this and this will land me 1000 visitors and x€
I would follow it but I dont know

If you can make just one dollar, every single time you want to make that dollar, you have unlocked 99% of what you need to become wealthy.

That only works, if you can ALWAYS make that one dollar, whenever you want to make it, however many times you want to do it.

If you're buying and selling, all you need is someone willing sell you something for $1, and someone else willing to buy that thing for $2...However, the seller must ALWAYS be able to sell you that thing for $1, and your buyer must ALWAYS be able to buy that thing for $2.

Now, I don't want to get off subject, because my point is not about buying and selling, my point is that all you need to BECOME TRULY WEALTHY and EARN PASSIVE INCOME is one method that works.

So, what you should do is find one thing that you do, that can make you just a single amount of money, and work that method into the ground.

DON'T FOCUS ON THE MONEY, FOCUS ON THE METHOD THAT EARNS THE MONEY.

If SEO is your thing, don't jump through hoops because you're only making $20 a month from your sites. Keep repeating the method that makes $20 a month until you reach your goal.

It seems to me, that many of you understand how to make money, and how to set your income goals. What may be stopping you, is that mentally you don't think you can reach your income goals fast enough when in reality, if you've made even just a couple dollars online you have the power to achieve the same freedom and success as those whom you look up to.

If your goal is to get an extra 1,000 targeted visitors to your site per month, don't over complicate that, focus on one method even if that only results in 10 or 20 visits per month, because if you repeat that method, you will reach your goals.

For example, I would assume that you could whip up a quick article on EzineArticles on just about any topic, and I can guarantee that you'll get at least 10 visitors per month to your site or link from it (being very conservative).

So, if you can write a measily 3 articles per day that get the minimum amount of traffic, it would only take you about 1 month to have an extra 1,000 visitors to your site or link EVERY MONTH!

To stay focused, forget everything else in the world except for what you know works.

Even if what you know works results in the most minimal of results, if it produced results you can repeat that system.

...

Ok, so now my biggest obstacle....

Developing a network, a team of Internet marketing partners and JVs with whom we can earn money together!

Best of luck all, I hope you're all jotting down some New Years resolutions!

This is quite apt at the moment as I gaze out at all the snow which has fallen. Achieving success on the internet is like me wanting to make a large snowball.

I have the ingredients (the snow). I have the know-how (find a slope).

Voila!! One large snowball at the bottom of the hill.

The obstacle?? Just getting off my butt to go and get the small snowball rolling down the hill.


Enjoy the snow while it is here.

My Advice:

I can see your problem since i have suffered from it myself. Procrastination has tried to kill me many times (unsuccessfully )

What I do is try to get organized first. I combine some techniques I think from Tony Robbins and a system called The Pomodoro Technique. Take a look at The Pomodoro Technique here: The Pomodoro Technique™ You can download a free pdf that explains the whole concept. Then download this very nice timer needed to apply the technique MaToMaTo - Windows Pomodoro Timer

This timer has the shape of a tomato and ticks every second for 25 minutes every time you start it. I just love that tomato!!!

If you prefer, download the Focus Booster Application here focus booster - home; try the pomodoro technique

It runs on Adobe Air, so it can be used on Mac as well (I think the cute tomato works on Mac too )

The main point of the technique is to do the task for 25 minutes, then take a 5 minute break and then rinse and repeat, until all your tasks have been finished.

The tomato timer is set at 25 minutes by default, but the Focus Booster is not so you can actually set it to more or less time if you want, and it allows you to set the break as well.

I really suggest you go and download the technique.


Here is the basic outline:

1. Write down everything you have to do (I do it on paper).
2. Set Priorities. Decide which ones you should do first
3. Set the timer and start
4. Have a 5 minute break. I use to stand up and stretch. Try to go away from your screen
5. Start the process again

This very simple process has helped a lot, I am sure it can help you too.

Note: to incorporate Tony Robbin's mindset stuff (the guy is good at success psychology) try to reward yourself for every task succesfully finished or punish yourself for a tasks not finished.

A reward could be a snack or 5 minutes browsing Facebook or Twitter or this wonderful forum

A punishment can be a set of sit ups or any other exercise during the 5 minute break.

These are just some ideas


If you combine this two techniques (Pomodoro and the Reward/punishment technique) you can have amazing results almost guaranteed. Just stick with the plan.

I hope I am helpful and you can overcome procrastination.

Now My Obstacles:

Not having a credit card and and living in a Paypal limited country. I almost can't buy anything online, and I don't even think about receiving payments

Other obstacle is lack of time since I have three children and two jobs so I do this internet marketing thing at nights and very early in the mornings.

I don't know how to deal with this, probably spending money on outsourcing tasks, but that is also a problem since I need my money to give my family a quality living

I wish everybody success!!!

WOW!!! Great answer. Very detailed plan

Regarding your obstacles I would consider seeking for a business partner. Find a very trusted person that can invest in your ideas. Use that money to outsource everything.


My main obstacle is lack of focus, which I overcome by outsourcing as well.

Now I will follow your plan using the Pomodoro thing

My advice: Since you have the ingredients and the know-how, take one small step at a time, instead of trying to accomplish the whole thing at once. This is the same advice I gave to my kids when their room was so trashed they could no longer walk through it and I insisted they clean it before they were allowed to go anywhere or watch tv. Start by making your bed, etc, etc, etc.

I had heard of The Pomodoro Technique but didn't know of the very nice tomato application.

Ok I can't figure out how to multiquote So I just name you:

@Zach Booker: the best time management technique ever is outsourcing. If you delegate work then it all can get done without you having to spend more time on it.

@Iva: There is no reason why you don't have a mentor if this forum is full of them. Well, if the reason is money, then you should offer them work in exchange of mentorship. Can you write? write for them. Can you build links? Build them for them. Can you design or code? Do it for them. You got the iea.

If you need somebody to brainstorm ideas with just go and tell a friend that could be interested in this and do something together. He could become your JV partner.

@King Shiloh: Your location is a problem for sure if you can't have Paypal or enroll affiliate networks, for example. It could be very hard for you to start selling services since most of them are paid with PP.

However you should concentrate in selling your own info products. Have a partner that can create a guide on whatever and sell it online. Use 2Checkout. They can accept PP in your behalf. Then they send you the money to your bank account or through a Payoneer Card. Plimus is another choice, but I would go for 2CheckOut first.


@Adam Roy: I don't even understand your obstacle

This is THE place where you can find JV partners. Sometimes your friend or relatives could be as well.

@David Louis Monk: Get off your butt!!! Seriously, you have to start somehow and now. Have you purchased a Time Management course? The one by Jason Fladlien could do the trick.

Learn some NLP techniques to overcome procrastination.

@Alex Barboza: Not having a PP is a bad thing for Internet Marketers. Read the suggestion I wrote for King Shiloh. Sell your own stuff through 2CheckOut or build Adsense sites (not he crappy micro sites but authority sites). There are some countries where Adsense sendthe money through Western Union.

Children are time consuming (sorry but it's true). You need a supportive wife and a babysitter as well

@El Zorro: lack of focus is a mental problem. Learn NLP. There are sme techniques that you can find for free to help you be more focused.


My obstacles:

Having a day job that is tooooo time consuming and living in a place far from home where I don't have any person that can support me or help me with this.

The money I make currently is less tha I earn in my day job so I can't quit yet

O.K now give me the moolah

Thanks for the suggestions. I already managed to solve my Paypal problem. I had a friend let me use his US Paypal address for my online transactions

I already have a babysitter, btw.

The last obstacle was asked by Juan so be sure to answer hers.

I'm so glad this thread gained a bit of momentum and I hope it helped a few people.

Hey Juan, my advice to you would be to find points of leverage and possibly take on a partner. Then when possible outsource as much as you can. For right now I think leveraging your strongest skills and working with someone else who has complementary skills or assets is your best bet. Since your time is so limited you need to figure out what things you do best and only do those while having your partner do the other parts.

There are some problems though when working with a partner. Finding someone who you trust, get along with and who has skills that compliment yours isn’t the easiest task. Then you have to work out the logistics on how much and what work you’ll each do and how your efforts will be rewarded and compensated once you generate revenue. If one of you feels the other isn’t pulling their weight things won’t work.

A good way around this is to jointly create systems and checklists of processes & tasks. Then you each agree to what should be on each of your check lists and as long as those items are done you know each of you are doing your part.

Another option might be to barter skills. Do what you do best for someone else. In exchange they do something for you that you’re not really good at. You can not only barter with individuals but businesses.

All in all they key for you and most people is leveraging your time and skills. Most of us can’t do it all, don’t like doing it all and don’t have the time to do it all. Your options are to either try and do it all or work with or pay others to get things done.

If you do everything yourself your progress will be slow and that’s a BIG problem. Getting and keeping momentum is key. I know from personal experience when things go slow and I get frustrated things get delayed or just don’t get done. When things work and move quickly they tend to keep on working and moving.

As for my obstacles, originally I was going to talk about my health. I’m still pretty young (32) but have been dealing with some chronic health issues for quite a while. I recently had radiation therapy and surgery which are things that most people would view as obstacles, but for me my biggest obstacle has been something else.

Over the years I’ve lost a lot of confidence in myself and my self-image has taken a beating. I feel ugly and bad about myself because physically I don’t look so great. I know it's vain or whatever. I have scares and other disfigurements on my face and body and even though I try and stay positive I can feel they have hurt my self-worth. People stare and wonder whats wrong with me when they see me. Maybe thats just how I see things because I'm so self concious. I'm judging my self by judging how others view me.

But really right now my biggest problem is, I don’t have any friends or people I can talk to about business, etc. Really what I’d love is to meet others who are successful who I get along with that I could swing ideas by. Perhaps a few I could talk to for a few minutes a day that could keep me on track, and help me stay upbeat and focused. I don’t know if that’s what a coach, mentor or mastermind does, but I plan to look into all 3 in the new year

I know what I need to do and I know how to do most of it, but sometimes I get hung up on things because of my lack of faith and confidence in myself. I do take action to work through my issues (reading, doing exercises, etc.) and have made progress but obviously I still have problems if I’m posting this.

On a side note, I want to say I'm blessed to have a partner in my life and we have 2 children together, which I know shocks people when we meet them. At times I feel bad and even guilty because I know for her things might be easier if she was with someone without these health and apperence issues.

MY OBSTACLE

The Sales Funnel

The whole process of the website that has your product or service to the secure delivery of your product or service. Which includes the following things.

1. A nice webpage to promote your product or service

2. An "Add to Cart Button" that is linked to a secure and affordable, easy to set-up file storage and delivery system.

3. All the necessary systems that have to be working and inplace from the web-page to the final delivery of your product/service to your customer or client.

4. I might add an helpdesk system also, since that is very important for customer service.



My main goal was to not spend more than $20.00 per month to do this.



MY ADVICE

Domain Purchase: Godaddy (look for coupon deals)
Cost: around $7.00 perdomain per year

Hosting Service: Godaddy (most IM's do not like them, but they have done me very well. I will probably get a Hostgator reseller account soon)
Cost: around $6.97 per month. I have at this time more than 40 domains and more than 15 live websites hosted on this account. Its the Linux Deluxe Hosting Account.

File Storage: Box.net
Cost: Less than $9.00 per month (5GB of storage and lots of control)

Secure File Delivery System: Digivendor Pro (standalone php script that you install on your own server)
Cost: One time upfront fee for the script of $49.95 (sometimes can get a discount on it, its pretty simple to install if you can follow directions well - or they will install it I believe for a small fee)

Help Desk: HESK (free help desk system, that you install on your own server, works great)
Cost: FREE

Website: I have taught myself to build my own websites

My Product: I offer my graphic design services, minisite designs, ect... and graphic design products for internet marketers.

PayPal Account: The actual payment processor
Cost: A fee of around 2.9 % per transaction and I believe a flat fee of .30 cents per transaction



#1 I enjoy designing and

#2 IM's need the services of a professional graphic designer.

So I thought it was a good fit.



It was a great learning experience and one that I would not trade, although it sure would have been nice for someone to tell me what I am writing in this post.........



Below is an attached image of how this basically flows, which should clear up some of the behind the scenes info that new IM's do not easily grasp or understand.

There are many other systems that can be used, such as Delavo, eJunkie, ect... on and on. But many of them are more complex, for example: Delavo is super complicated, eJunkie is not to hard but it's not a standalone system like mine. I do not pay for file delivery charges I own the script. While ejunkie charges a fee to store and deliver files

This system was set up to save me the most amount of money possible since I had hardly any when starting out for this venture.
We have a winner!

PM sent and $100 on it's way.

Thank for everyone who participated! Hopefully it helped a few people!

Even though the contest is done feel free to keep the thread alive.

Cheers!

Maybe that's the case, I won't go back to check my records. Just sent you $100 to the PayPal account you specified.

Great answer. Hope more folks have a chance to read through this thread.

Cheers,

Zach

My biggest obstacle right now is Google. They just suspended my Adwords account after deciding that my website violates their TOS. Maddening because I had ad after ad approved, and then apparently one reviewer got a bug up their butt and decided that my site was "Get Rich Quick". Total garbage, because I go OUT OF MY WAY to explain it is NOT get rich quick and that though there is no guarantee of income, 6 figures is possible if you work at it. Maddening! There are other issues having just launched of course, but that is the one really chapping my hide today.
