Hey Everyone, Nate here again, and I have a lot on my mind, and honestly, I want some of your input...

I haven't been on here in a while, and it's mostly because I've been killing it with some of my businesses that are taking off, and honestly, getting on the Warrior Forums hasn't been a priority.

But, to get to the point, I am working on a course that will help people get a foot in the door with working online, but in a somewhat unique aspect of digital info products. I'm not going to teach people the standard "Teach Others How To Make Money Online". I'm here to help others start a real business using their own skills or experience.

So, what is your biggest questions about working online?

Is it traffic, is it product development, outsourcing, copy writing, sales funnels, newsletters, what?

Anything goes, seriously. I just want to where some people are needing that extra boost.

Anyone can use the information on this thread. That's fine.

It would be good for this community to come together, lay out their questions, and just have a gathering on what they may be lacking.

I love doing these posts, because it really brings out the strength of the Warrior Forums.

Looking forward to the questions, and how we can get some massive questions and answers out of this. I want to see everyone take away value from this post.

Thanks, and I'll talk to you all soon!

      Guessing that's a big one Guus with the classic profits question too.

      I'd want to know more about time management Nate? I do a good job in that area but always open to new methods or hacks for better time management.

        Ryan, that's an awesome question man... How I look at "time management" is like "money management"...

        Basically, I look ask, "How much TIME will that cost me to do something, and how valuable is that time being spent?"

        If it is spending time with my wife, or traveling, or with family, obviously, I will never put a dollar value to it, because it is life experience, and what us "Digital Nomad" minded people enjoy the most; Freedom and choices.

        However, we all have to pay our dues and put in the work. So, when it comes to time, you need to do the bigger tasks in the morning, or earlier in the day.

        For example, today, I woke up at about 9:30 AM, got on Facebook and Instagram to do some posting for an event that is concluding today, got some coffee, and here I am on the Warrior Forums answering questions and learning myself.

        On the days that I am putting in serious work, I figure out, "What do I need to accomplish today?"

        I write down the RESULT that I want to achieve, not the action of doing so itself. If it is going to cut into my day, I see how much it would cost to have someone else do it, or if someone else CAN even do that work for me.

        If I can outsource it for $6/hour for a few hours, while I focus on working with my clients/audiences, then of course, I'm not going to try to compress working with my clients and a project together.

        Also, using a planner to set up times and days that you are going to accomplish certain tasks keeps you from leaking your time spent in each area to each other. You should keep them separated so that you don't feel rushed or pinched for time.

        Just think about your money budget. This is why I compare money to time. Do I have more money than time? Spend some money and free up your time. Do I have more time than money (Yeah, right...)? Spend some time on a project and get more money coming in.

        My time management started with money management. By leveraging my time and money with other people's time and need for money, I put my priority, my wife and family, first, life experiences second, and work third.

        Now, if you are just looking for ways to simplify your day, get a planner, and just be disciplined enough to only spend your allotted time to each project. If you have to do more tomorrow after focusing 100% for that time and having measurable progress, that's fine. Don't let that project consume your day and become an obsession.

        Let me know if you have any other questions, Ryan. Thanks for the question!

      haha, yes, this is definitely true. To be honest, most people struggle with traffic in the beginning, and continue to do so throughout their entire time marketing unless the understand that there are different methods for different fluctuations of traffic.

      What you should do, and what I recommend most people do, is learn to use communities for initial traffic. You can do this by finding social communities built around your niche or topic, and spend a week or two engaging and offering value back to the community with content.

      Some communities, such as the Warrior Forum, for example, allows Signature files, or "sig files/blocks". Lots of other forums allow this, so after you are established, you can create a signature that offers value for someone interested in what you offer.

      This is called controlled traffic. You are controlling what they see if they click your link. This should be sent to a squeeze page where you build your list, and then as you build your list, traffic becomes easier to flow to your products as you build a relationship with your audience.

      You set the pace with your email list. As people subscribe, they will see that you are serious about your work, but want them to enjoy following you and offer them loads of value.

      The next thing I would do is learn how to create paid traffic. Google AdWords, Bing PPC, Facebook Target Marketing, etc. This is a bit more complex, and can be a pain to learn if you don't have much funds to experiment with. I would definitely recommend taking several courses on each platform to get better results quicker. Then, the other half of getting good results is just getting experience with the platforms. Get really good at one platform before moving on to the next.

      The final form of traffic is "Uncontrolled Traffic", or "Dark Social" traffic. This is people copying your links from social media pages, or direct linking by copying and pasting a URL from other pages. This isn't search engine traffic. Search engine traffic can be tracked, but is not controlled. "Dark Social" traffic appears to be "Direct Traffic", but doesn't line up with your tracking links, as you should have in place.

      It all comes down to this: Start connecting with as many Facebook groups, communities, forums, and blogs in your niche as possible, and start listening to the audiences. See what people want, and offer your insights and value. DO NOT try to sell anything. Just help people.

      Next, I would learn paid advertising, preferably whatever stands out most to your audience. Depending on where your target market spends most of their time, a paid banner ad on a very niche-focused blog would be more successful than a Facebook Ad, so do your research. Finally, I would recommend you look into writing your own blog, and using SEO and Long Tail Keywords for that long-term traffic.

      Hope this helps get you on a clearer path on where you need to start. And don't worry, everyone struggles with finding how to drive traffic. Sometimes, it's better to just partner with people who are already good at it and stop wasting your time with things that take forever to learn. That's always an option too.

      Honestly, if you are just starting out, with no idea what to do, I would recommend into Affiliate Marketing or Digital Product Creation that is NOT in the "make money online" niche. You can even pay someone (Outsourcing) to write a "How To _______" eBook, and then build a course on something that is a hot market right now.

      Just look up Google trends, and see what people like. Then, give the eBook away to get people on your list, and then sell them on your video course.

      Niches, such as crafts, fitness, mindset, and wealth/health are always good choices. Starting out though, I discourage people from trying to make a "How To Make Money Online" product. Obviously, you are brand new, and you will fail before you succeed, so don't jump in head first and get called out when you don't know how to answer questions.

      Just study a subject that people are already paying a lot of money for, figure out what they want by reading comments in social communities, answer their questions, turn that information into an info product, and sell it with PayPal as a checkout. You can be up and running and make your first few bucks within a week or two.

      It's not that hard. People make it harder than it has to be. The hardest part is just getting it down to where you finish something and get it in front of people. Most people quit too soon to even tell if they had a good product or not.

      I would seriously recommend looking into anything by Russel Brunson. He seriously knows how to get things up and going quickly.

    Making Money on the internet while traveling the world. Most of the offers out there are geared towards the AUTHOR and to make them money not the little guys buying these offers. In order for the little guy to make money HE NEEDS ALSO to come up with a course, record it produce it post it and sell it/upsell it. Right?

      Uhhhh no, not really... I discourage people from selling crap products that don't help anyone, especially "Make Money Online" products.

      I want people to make REAL products for other niches, such as fitness, mindset, hobbies, etc.

      There are literally millions of niches people can make bank in, but "Make Money Online" seems to be the go-to market for crap products.

      I recommend looking into what's hot, and create a product that answers peoples' questions in that niche, and market to them. Find out what they want, and give it to them. It's a fairly simple concept, and most people over-complicate the whole thing.

          Yes and no... If you master traffic, but not how to create a converting page or offers, you're going to spend a crap load of money and get very little money back if any. You may be able to get LOADS of traffic for an awesome price or for free, but quality of traffic, market research, problem solving, product selection, etc., you won't go farther than if you had a badass product and no traffic... It's like having a car without an engine, or an engine without a car...

      Exactly. The intervals are how I keep myself productive without feeling like I'm wasting time. That's really good.
