Re: How long did it take until you turned a profit?

I like that the majority of people are actually saying how long it took - a few months seems very realistic.

Too many times I see, "Make this much money in one day!"

It's a grind and it doesn't...

Re: What Kind Of Content For Weight Loss Membership Site Monthly Membership?

I think you could offer some type of personal training program as a reason/incentive for customers to pay a monthly membership. This might be tough without a PT certificate and many testimonials.

Re: How to get views in youtube

Also, don't forget to create an attractive thumbnail. It needs to be a picture or still image of the video that really grabs the viewers attention. Add some thumbnail text on top of that to give it...

Re: Advice from a Senior Warrior....

Thank you for this post John. I hear so much about the importance of traffic - but never the sale.

I'm just beginning my long journey, and your words are truly a motivation.

Re: Is it possible to start up in IM without spending anything at all?

Theoretically you could - maybe setup a FB group of some kind, build a huge following, then start selling some affiliate products. (I'm really oversimplifying this)

Re: What's an ideal length for a video ad?

Shorter the better I think.

Look at ads on YouTube for example - viewers now have the option to skip an ad after only 5 seconds.

Re: 250 Twitter Followers in 2 Days

Also don't forget to use trending hashtags in your tweets. You can gain followers by saying something interesting or funny about a current "hot" topic.

Re: Who's still using hashtags? Or are they a thing of the past?

I agree that some hashtags can be over used - it's all about using the correct ones.

On Twitter there's always a list of the ten current trending hashtags.

If you ever find any hashtags...

Re: Id rather be happily broke doing IM than be a robot

If you can afford to be happily broke then go for it.

I understand some people can get caught up in a job they don't like because it provides them with a means to take care of their family.

Re: Attention newbies - Reasons why your blog sucks (and how you can fix it).

Another tip - make sure your blog isn't slow.

If your website is taking 8-10 seconds to load, you won't get much traffic.

Re: how do you go from working in the business to on the business

It's all about perspective.

When you work IN the business, you're just going through the motions - completing minor tasks and thinking about issues on a day-to-day basis.

Re: Do you write like you talk in blog posts? Conversational vs. Traditional style. What's best?

For me writing and reading a blog in a conversational tone just seems natural.

The more academic or traditional tone can work if you're maybe teaching something about digital real estate sales.

Re: What happens when you're all about the ideas, but not the action?

That fist step needs to be taken, no matter how much resistance there is.

Your friend should read The War of Art, by Steven Pressfield.

Great little book to help get things rolling.

Re: .co domains? Hurt or Help or does not matter?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe Google will rank you better as a ".com" as well.

The largest websites are .com so they get a preference in the search results.

Re: All-In-One: Free Software You Can't Live Without

Re: ideas on blog

Exactly. Even though you sell many different items and don't have a "niche" a blog will help.

As time goes on, your blog will have so much content you could make categories of everything you sell.

Re: Does working for yourself mean working 7 days?

I think what might be more important than a "set schedule" is finding that self motivation. You won't have a boss telling you what to do and giving you deadlines.
