3 Quick Ways to Sell more and Earn more in 2019

8 replies
Happy New Year!

If you'd like a simple way to make more this year, it all comes
down to being more productive.

That means making more offers.

You can't make money if you don't sell stuff.

You can't sell stuff if you're not making offers.

And you can't make offers if you're not productive.

Here are 3 things I did last year that helped me
DRAMATICALLY make more income.

1. Unsubscribe from any and ALL emails that send you
anything that's NOT related to your goals and business.

I used to spend 30 minutes a day just going through email
and seeing what was important.

I'd get emails from SO many lists I had subscribed to in the
past 19 years.

But almost all of them were selling me stuff that I wasn't
interested in and that wasn't helping me reach my goals.

So, instead of spending the time to read or filter through
them, I just unsubscribed.

After unsubscribing to almost ALL but 3 to 4 emails,
I've found myself saving 30 to 40 minutes a day.

Be careful of the noise that email can be.

It's distracting and it takes you away from making
offers.

2. Stay off social media if you're not making offers.

Some marketers use social media to sell and make
offers, whether it's by posting content or running ads.

I used to find myself scrolling through my newsfeed,
mindlessly.

So, I stopped going on social media altogether, except
for 15 to 20 minutes in the evening, when I'm not
"working".

Again, social media is noise. It's distracting and keeping
you away from productive work and making offers.

If you're not actively working and making offers or valuable
content on social media... stay off it.

I promise, stay off social media and instead, use that
time to create products, write copy, and make offers.

When you unsubscribe from email lists you're on,
and also stay off social media... you can often get
an extra 60 minutes of productive time each day.

Be careful of the noise and distractions that can keep
you from being productive.

3. Stop buying info products and instead, start selling stuff

This one almost seems like common sense, but it's not.

FAR too many marketers keep buying info products or other
ebooks, courses, and content in hopes they learn that
one secret they're missing.

Well, here's the secret.

The secret to making money online is selling and making
offers.

But, you can't make offers if you're always buying stuff.

So, stop buying and consuming info and instead, produce
valuable info and SELL it.

By switching from consumer to producer... you'll start
making more offers.

And once again, the more offers you make, the more
you will sell and earn.

Unsubscribe from email lists that aren't helping you
get where you want.

Stay off the social media noise and busyness.

And start producing and selling more.

I PROMISE you, do those 3 things and you'll
get back more time that you can use to be productive
and make more offers... making more income in the process.

    Nice and simple. I love your advice because I do it every year - and tell those I care about to follow it as well.

    Pruning your email subscriptions and limiting time spent on social networks can free up enough resources to develop new products or execute fresh marketing ideas that boost sales and profit.

    And #3 is, of course, the biggie! Stop being a consumer and transform into a creator.

    Happy New Year!

    Sure, good advice as far as it goes. It is maybe the fifth or sixth post in the last few days which says the same thing; quit consuming, PRODUCE.

    And it is something many Warriors want to do.
    So, maybe expand this with the HOW?

    If they follow the first 2 parts, they save time, now tell them what to do with that time to become a PRODUCER.

    And, so as not to be snarky with the obvious, the switching from consumer to producer, I'll get the ball rolling.

    Every single Warrior has some STORED VALUE in his/her mind. Some experience, knowledge, contacts, skills or even just location...which can be mined and turned into a product. You can PRODUCE a product fairly quickly, easily and without much time spent.

    In fact, the time saved in the first two parts of the OP (original post), would be enough time to create a product. HOW?

    Maybe you think you don't have any specialized know how, then start where you are at with what you have. Your location. It doesn't need be a tourist guide, or even a destination, but how expert are you on the place where you live? Can easily be turned into a product.

    Such as a NOSTALGIA product which goes back 50 years in time in your community and with a little research, you can create a product local people might be interested in.

    If you want to see an example of such a product (and I have NO affiliation) then go to Amazon and search for Carl Ellis and Bradford, Ohio Christmas Past. Simple little product anyone here could PRODUCE.

    But chances are you do have some experiences to call upon to create a product. Maybe hobbies, spare time activities, reading habits.

    The BIG SECRET to becoming a PRODUCER as both Shawn and Dr. Mani advise...is...to create or produce something people want.

    HOW? Again, with the questions. I like to see people begin with TARGET markets, or people who buy, people who have demonstrated an interest, or better yet, a passion in a subject. OR, it they have a problem shared by multitudes.

    Warrior Barb Ling produced a ONE page hotsheet (cheatsheet) and sold a ton of them. Many people produce one page products, even courses out there on how to do that.

    I like to see people start with one piece of information, expand it out to four pages. Then detail it out, include graphics, pics, formatting...and you can produce a product a week, with the time saved by staying off social media, email, and forums even.

    You don't need a web site either. I've sold scores of products off of my DROPBOX account (the FREE version).

    Easiest product to produce? The INTERVIEW. I just had 20 minutes of audio transcribed at Rev dot com, and the five pages I got back, turned into a nice 12 page report for the first product of the year.

    If you can talk, you can create a product easily in half an hour, and maybe one of the voice transcription softwares, like Dragon, may allow you to dictate your content. There are free voice to text programs, which may (or may not) save you time too.

    So, this is hardly comprehensive, but a starting point to APPLY the advice...producer not consumer.

    YOU, whomever and wherever you are, have some stored value in your brains, use the time you save and spend it on getting into producer/creator mode. NO promises here, but at least now you have a tad bit of the HOW, fair enough?

    Great tips

    To add to your list, I suggest #4

    #4: Focus on ONE THING at a time

    Focus on one opportunity

    Implement it

    Tweak it to get desired results

    Optimize to get the BEST results based on your resources

    Reinvest in your optimized system and SCALE IT UP

    Use your income from that ONE opportunity to REPEAT the process with ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY

    Quit jumping from project to project....

    To a point I absolutely agree with what is being said here. HOWEVER, Isolation is not always a good thing.

    After unsubscribing to almost ALL but 3 to 4 emails,
    Lets start here... I personally regularly sign up for e-mails.. and yes i narrow down those that i follow. The reason? There are basically 2 types of e-mail sequences.. those that sell and those that deliver content. I WILL BET the 3 to 4 you have kept are delivering content / value.

    I look for these ( those that deliver value vs selling ) This is what I practice, and would and do emulate emulate.. it is always good to have working examples to draw from, let alone an avenue to learn from.

    Stay off of your personal account maybe.. depending how you might have your business activity segragated. But the fact is in todays environment, if you are not engaging on social media.. you are being left behind. It is the nature of business today and therre is really no getting around it. You want to build authority? you had better be on social, you want to develop a tribe? you had better be on social.

    I personally do not sell info products. i am a real product and service kind of guy.. but every product i have and ever will sell, i have bought - affiliate sales included.

    I also buy material pertaining to some of my clients endevours. I belong to Dirt Monkey U as an example to better understand the needs of my many blue collar clients.

    IF I were to get into the business of selling info products.. i would be buying the crap out of contextually equal products to the one I was going to produce to ensure #1 maybe learning a thing or 2 and #2 knowing that i would be bring huge amounts of value vs the rest of the products on the market.

    And here would be the seperation of what it is you are suggesting vs what i am suggesting there is CONSUMING time, and there is USING time. Another word that comes to mind is accountability.

    Speaking of Accountability.. why do i come to the WF? I ENJOY sharing my experience... I enjoy helping others maybe get ahead.. I am a F I R M believer in giving and giving to get. And here.. i am not even looking to get, so no expectations of getting and just giving.. and yes I do get here, there are some pretty dedicated and smart AF members here I learn from all the time.

    So to the point.. every action should have a reason. there should be accountability for your actions... If you are wasting time.. then to realize that is one thing, and to correct it is another. Each and every decision is a decision towards success. So dont stop doing things, just convert the reason for doing them.

    I like the tip suggesting to unsubscribe from many lists.

    Nowadays I only follow the people that I know create value in their emails and this has many benefits to it.

      Great point Kevin.

      If I remember right, it was Rich Schefren in his coaching program
      back in 2007 who said..

      "Unsubscribe to any lists that do not give you the kind of insight,
      knowledge, and advice that is in line with your own goals for business".

      In other words, whether it's email or buying products... ask yourself...

      "Will this HELP me get CLOSER to my goal or not?"

      If not, delete it, unsubscribe, or don't buy.

      If the emails or product is something that will speed up your
      results that YOU want, are in line with YOUR goals, and
      will help you get there faster, easier, or cheaper... it's worth it.

      Otherwise, it's noise.

    Totally agree with you. Checking out of emails and social media takes a lot of time. Everyone knows it, but only a few try to get rid of social media profiles.
    Thats why I use SMM and email marketing. A lot of people spend a bulk of time on Instagram or Facebook, so I guess it's necessary to provide good content for social media marketing. I also send cold and warm emails with Snovio cause as you mentioned people usually spend about 20 minutes every day checking out their email box.
