A major course that was recently released by a major internet guru is currently teaching people to do as follows:
1) Figure out how much you want to make per year (e.g. $100K)
2) Figure out how much that is per month ($8333.33/month)
3) Figure out how much that is per day (approx. $275 per day)
The idea being that you then have a more "manageable" way of looking at earning that much money since it's easier to think about making $275 per day rather than $100K per year.
HOWEVER in the spirit of sharing what will truly help you succeed I need to tell you something...
This is NOT how most big earners approach their business - and it's absolutely NOT how the guru who promoted this product approaches their own business.
I know there will be certain successful Warriors who chime in here to say they do approach their business with a goal of making X per day. That's fine.
What I can tell you from personal experience in working with 6 and 7 figure marketers in major niches is most of them look to create big paydays, not daily trickles.
In case you need hard evidence look no further than your friendly neighborhood product launch and you will see this is the case.
It's true that they will often attach monthly continuity income to the main offer - but a majority of the time the product launch starts with a huge payday that can go into the 7 figures.
Some reading this will say, "Yes Ken but those guys had to work their way up to that level."
They only worked their way up to that level as a matter of mindset. Every one of them will tell you they could have approached it with big thinking from the start - and they would tell you if they had it to do over again they would.
Some reading this will say, "That's great Ken but I'm not 'ready' to play the IM game at that level" etc. etc................
That's just it. You ARE ready to play at that level. You simply need to approach your business that way instead of the way you're currently approaching it.
So how can you play the IM game at a high level rather than at the lower level? Here are a couple solid tips for you:
1) Actually choose an industry/niche
In talking with students and subscribers it amazes me how many people are out there "punting" with zero direction and no plan.
Until you have a niche or industry you want to serve with products, services or both, you will never build anything. It's that simple.
Truly choose a market to serve and you will be amazed at what starts to happen to your business.
2) Identify ultra successful marketers in your chosen niche and really study what they do.
Yes, I'm a broken record on this point but I can't emphasize it strongly enough:
The most successful marketers in EVERY niche are literally showing you what to do in THAT niche.
You don't have to guess "what works" or "what to do". They are handing it to you on a silver platter.
Become their prospect, even become their customer to some degree....and you will see exactly "what to do". Just watch what's being done to you.
Make sense? Now go get 'em.
