2001 or so, I put up my first site. It was butt-ugly, but it sold my fitness programs.
Since I didn't know anything at the time, I had to keep things simple.
And you know what, simple was exactly what I needed.
Simple works and it STILL works for me today.
Look, if you're like most people I chat with, you think that making money online is hard.
It's actually not.
Making money online, comes from selling stuff.
And you sell stuff that adds value to other people.
It could be a product or service. But as long as it HELPS someone, and
they get value from it, they will pay you money for it.
They want what you're offering more than the money they have.
So, think of making money online in these terms:
** Sell stuff that helps people**
Seriously, that's all it is.
If you can create a product or service that takes people from where they are (which is NOT where they want to be)...
And you help them get where they WANT to be (solving a problem).... that's how you sell stuff.
Simplifying this is how you put it into action.
Action is how you actually make stuff and sell stuff.
There's a good chance, that what you know, right now, could help someone.
So why not put that solution down on a word document, create a PDF file,
and sell it.
For your "sales letter" just tell the person what it is, what it will help them
with, and why they need it. Sprinkle in "what makes you different" and
you should be able to sell it.
But it all goes back to keeping it simple.
Find a group of people with a common problem. Make a document that outlines a solution.
Offer that solution to this group of people... and you will make sales.
By finding people who are motivated to get something they want... and by giving them exactly what they want... you can sell more.
And yes, it takes work... but again, keep it simple. Just create a pdf file that has a solution to a problem. Try and really help people solve their problem.
By creating content and products that help people, you're bound to make sales and money.
And when you keep everything simple, you're more likely to take action.
It's this action that matters.
Creating content takes action. Creating products takes action. Writing sales copy takes action.
But action is just that... action. Doing the work. But who said it has to be difficult.
Find a group of people who have a problem they want solved.
That group of people is at Point A.
Create a word doc/PDF file that has a solution to their problem.
The product gets those people from Point A to Point B.
Write down, in a short sales letter, all the benefits and how it will
help them solve their problem. Give them unique reasons why.
Heck, even demonstrate the steps they'll take to get where they want.
As you continue to take action, doing this simple stuff, you will make
You can use that progress and momentum to create more products.
It's the creating and doing and action taking that puts it all into motion.
Most newbies think they have to buy 100 courses and study 1,000 pages
before they're "ready".
Nope, you're ready right now.
Just keep it simple. Take action and keep creating products
that help people. Tell them how it can help them.
Keep doing that, over and over, and you will make money online.
