Today is social media day! (Not globally recognized or anything, it’s just the topic I want to give you specific training on today.)
A client of ours has been posting a new video to YouTube on a weekly basis, but wasn’t exactly getting the results she’d hoped for. I was SO proud of her for making this effort… naturally, music to my ears! When I logged into her account, I saw that she was missing MAJOR opportunities for exposure.
I want to address that… plus a few other social media tips that will dramatically give you a boost!
The major area this client […]
In my recent post, WordPress Website Design – How to Create a Membership Website – Part I, I provided guidance on choosing the website structure that is best for you. Now it’s time to dive into content creation (it’s a BIGGIE!).
Creating content for your membership website should be a process similar to any other content you’re creating. It should be high-value, varied and easy to access. You can create videos, blog posts, expert articles, slideshows, infographics, monthly Q&A calls, expert interviews and even feature guest bloggers who may receive a percentage of the monthly membership fees (this allows you […]
As entrepreneurs, we all know just how often life can interfere with the work we’ve chosen. There are just so many distractions for online entrepreneurs to cope with, especially when working from home. In fact, Pamela Zimmer recently asked about this in one of my Authentic Leader Q&A sessions.
“When you know what your purpose is, you’re passionate about it and know you’re on the right path….how do you stay motivated and productive when everything seems to take longer than you’d hoped?”
Gosh, have any of you NOT dealt with this?
Daily Planning & Scheduling
The first thing I do to keep focused […]
There are many ways to monetize a website, one of the best being a membership site. I like to think of this type of website as a library of content, or a sort of Supercenter for content, that allows you to charge for access to a variety of training materials related to your industry. I’ve set up literally dozens of membership websites over the past few years, including half-a-dozen for myself, as well as for clients.
The most common way to set up this type of site is to charge a monthly fee for access to the website. However, there are […]
In a previous post, I shared how you can generate income streams for yourself through affiliate programs. Now it’s time to think about setting yourself up for even more success by creating your own affiliate program, and letting others do some of your work for you. Sounds good, right?
As your business begins to grow and you create more products, programs and services, you will also be creating opportunities for yourself (and your tribe!) to begin earning income from them. As your menu grows, along with your audience and your list, you can begin to offer people the opportunity to help you […]
You know that feeling when it seems like there is just too much to do? Your body feels tight and adrenaline is pumping.
The name of the game is “Simplify.”
We have crazy unrealistic expectations we put on ourselves to do more, and more, and more and more.
Maybe I can’t help with your expectations, but I CAN help you to simplify. (I’ve been able to totally nail this process.)
Step 1. Stay focused on the present moment. (No, this isn’t a woo woo message.)
By staying focused, you can start to really become aware of the tasks you’re doing more than twice.
When I realize […]
HOW you say what you have to say can be just as important as what you have to say.
Staying in touch with subscribers to your email list is critical to monetizing your efforts. Here are some very important tips to structuring your emails that will not only keep your audience engaged, but will also lead to more sales.
First, you have to keep in mind that your list may be the most important marketing tool you possess. After all, these are people who’ve already shown an interest in working with you, by subscribing to your list. Because they’re already engaged, these folks […]
I read a really good blog post last week, and it inspired the heck out of me. I HAD to share it with you….
Christine Cress is the name of the leadership coach who wrote this amazingly insightful blog post titled “Was He Ever Invested?“
You really, truly, should make time to read this…
In the post, Christine shares a story about her tween son who had a summertime mentor/friend. This young man is a college student who comes to work on ‘special projects’ with him. (Amazing idea, parents!)
Two weeks into this fast-forming and fulfilling relationship, Christine’s son excitedly asked her if […]
Now that you’ve decided to Make Extra Income through Affiliate Programs, it’s time to talk about marketing them to ensure that you actually do create a new income stream from the commissions you hope to receive.
Create a Launch Plan
…just as your affiliate developed a plan to launch their product or service to create a return on their investment. Now that you’ve become invested in their product or service, you too should create a plan to launch it to your visitors and list.
Blog Post – explain why you love this product or service so much. Especially if you use it […]
Need a cash infusion? Affiliate marketing is a great way to “Work smarter, not harder”. Most emerging entrepreneurs struggle to generate cash, at least now and then. Others struggle with cash flow occasionally, when business is slow. Still others just like to generate what’s known as “passive revenue”. Whatever your reason may be for exploring the world of affiliate marketing, it’s a great way to quickly generate revenue for your business – with minimal effort. Essentially, when you become an affiliate, you sell a product or service for another provider. For this, they will pay you a commission. Of course, […]
