Yes, I truly did make $400 today and the day before yesterday and $500 two days before that, but if U want to know how this is happening I want you to consider this...
Remember Dane Cook? He blew up for a while as a comedian and doing movies. He's still around but not as much. The point is I only heard of him two years ago.
do you know how long he's been doing comedy? for 20+ years!!!!!!
THERE ARE NO INSTANT SUCCESSES.
The stories you hear about people making $20,000 in one launch day and only started internet marketing six months ago are a load of crap. There are rare exceptions with exceptional circumstances... aka Trey Smith who made a ton of money online his first year but he had a connection, well, THE connection, ...Frank Kern.
Not too many of us can just call up Frank ( the master ) to tell us exactly what to do.
What you can do however is first realize that there are exceptions to the rule, but don't consider yourself one of them. Instead, work hard and the money will come and I promise you, when it does, you'll see through most of the B.S. on clickbank and other places.
THERE ARE NO OVERNIGHT SUCCESSES, THE ONLY PEOPLE THAT SUCCEED ARE THE ONES THAT KEEP PLUGGING AWAY AT IT UNTIL THEY MAKE MONEY...
So now to the meat and potatoes of how I made $400 today...
First, in my inbox it said "Notification of payment received"
Now I don't know about you, but these are my favorite emails, but my even more favorite emails are the ones that say,
"You have received a subscription payment"
Most of you are not getting these, yet these are the payments that make all the difference!
The particular payments that I'm talking about are for $197. There are days when I'll get 2 or three of these besides my other sales in this business and other businesses.
THIS IS THE MISSING PIECE IN YOUR BUSINESS!
You cannot rely on "one off" sales. The bulk of my income is from subscription payments.
If you want to make money online, you need to sign people up for monthly payments.
Which scenerio sounds easier?
option one: spending time and money on traffic and then getting them to buy your cheap $37 e-book once, never to be seen again, then you have to spend more time and money finding a new set of leads to sell to
option two: You spend time and money on leads, you get their email, you sell them a one off product and you offer them a higher end monthly product.
In my case I charge $97 for my front end product and $197 monthly for my higher end product.
Most people that buy my $197 monthly program stay for at least three months, that means they are really a $600 sale! That is just one lead.
Are you starting to get the picture yet?
I bet you can see a huge hole in your business strategy now. For those of you who are already doing this and killing it, congratulations! You get it!
For the rest of you, you know who you are, you know you need to do this.
I want you to succeed, but you will make the road much easier with a monthly program.
I have written some free IM lessons for newbies at: Powerful and free IM lessons No opt-in required.
almost everything else I've seen out there is NOT WORTH YOUR TIME! However there are some other good ones:
here are some more people who's lists you should join:
1/ Frank Kern: Most IMer's hang on his every word and for good reason, he makes money.
2/ brendan burchard: he also makes a ton of money and is top notch
3/ eben pagen: makes more money than Frank and Brenden combined... you should probably listen to him as thousands of others have.
4/ Mike Hill: responsible for generating over $100 million dollars, I know it sounds ridiculous and because it is! That's a lot of money!
You will not start out making that much money, these guys have been online for ten years or more. However, if you model your business close to theirs, you can't go wrong, seriously! That is how I got to where I am at!
seriously, I would not join too many other lists than this, it's really all you need!
What I really want you to take away from this and go and implement immediately is to go to your white board and create a concept for your brand new "monthly membership" and I want you to have the stones to charge people AT LEAST $197 per month.
I suggest if you are in the IM niche that you charge for personal mentoring. Please only teach what you have actually got results with!!!!!!!!
If you guys have any other resources for newbies, please leave them in the comments below: The ONLY CRITERIA is that it CANNOT BE some "traffic software" or "other get rich quick scheme!"
I'll also answer questions if there are any...
