I know of a time-tested and proven way to add literally thousands of dollars to your bottom line... Multiply your profits exponentially... Increase customer retention... Decrease refunds... And overall, improve your business and you life.
It can be implemented in any niche, at any time, by anyone. Online, offline, inline, upline, downline, it all works.
Use it for list building... Selling ebooks, memberships, physical products, services, whatever you want, and you WILL see success.
Ok, so you probably want to know what this big secret technique is, right?
You're dying to find out what the h@!! I'm talking about, because I've rambled for a long time now, right?
In fact, the longer you read, the more frustrating it gets - right?? (Ok, now I'm just having fun with it... LOL!)
Ok, here it is...
Stop caring about money. Period.
Ok, I know you might have heard this before, but I really want to drill this home in a way that it may actually make an impact for you.
I know you have to care about money sometimes, like when your home is being foreclosed or your heat is cut off, or when you need money for diapers and formula. But when it comes to your business, I want you to stop caring about making money from your customers. Right now!!
All these threads about "how do I become a guru so I can get rich?" and "how do I start making money offline so I can get rich?" and "how can I make $XX by ____?" - You're not going to get anywhere with a mentality like that. Trust me on this one, from personal experience.
Think for one second about who you buy from... Who has lasted as a guru in this and other markets for years, while certain "others" come and go just as quickly as their big commission checks.
These people all do three things...
1) They give you good info for free, so that you trust them.
2) They're approachable and accessible, and genuinely want to help (those who only pretend to want to help are revealed quickly, and then gone...)
3) They provide huge amounts of value in the products that they do charge money for.
So what do you think they think about most... How to make money off of these people who are trusting and putting faith in them? No...
Every single millionaire marketer you will ever meet doesn't give money a thought until they've provided VALUE.
I can't emphasize this enough, people.
This is why the markets are filled with some real crap, and some real gems... Because the difference between the crap and the good stuff is that the creators were thinking of money instead of value.
If you want to make a quick $27 minus PayPal fees, sure you can slap something together that some "sucker" will buy (hey, we've all been on the "sucker" end of that kind of transaction). But they'll get mad. And they won't buy anything else from you. And people will slowly learn that all you care about is the almighty dollar, and you'll fail. Miserably.
If you want to start a business, start thinking of value first. You can develop a real good monthly income by providing value at a reasonable cost. Reasonable is relative by the way - if you provide $10k worth of value, $1997 really is a bargain.
Short term thinking gets you short term results. Build yourself a reputation as a trustworthy expert by providing value - and money will follow.
