The Daily Routine Of A Successful Person

“Do the hard jobs first. The easy jobs will take care of themselves.”

~ Dale Carnegie

Hey Billie Scott here with some ramblings about successful people.  People who hit the mark because they are determined to live life on their own terms no matter what life hands them.

“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade”
― Elbert Hubbard

I was watching a really good video by Robin Sharma last night (you can see it here) where he was talking about morning routines.

Those first few hours of the day are critical to your productivity and how much you accomplish in business and in life.

How do you spend those hours?

If you’re like most people, one of the first things you do is check email and social media.

This is literally the worst way you can start your day.  Why?  Because you’re going into a ‘reactive’ mode from the very start.  And often how you start your day, is how you’ll end your day.successful people daily routine

When you’re reacting from the moment you wake up, it’s extremely hard to switch into a proactive mode later in the day and be extremely productive.

But…

If you start your day by doing the most important tasks which will have the biggest impact, then you build up momentum.  By the time 11am rolls around, you may have accomplished more in the few 3 – 4 hours of the day than most people get done all day.

It’s much easier to be productive in the second half of the day as well when you know in the back of your mind you’ve already got a lot of important things done.

Start Your Day With An Energizing Work Out

I don’t know if you work out in the morning.  But if you don’t, give it a try.  Starting your day with a good work out routine where you really sweat, is one of the best things you can do.  I myself am usually up at 5ish,  and start with a brisk walk, then a low run and back to a brisk walk.  I make sure I am out there for 30 minutes breathing in the morning air, getting ready for my first cup of hazelnut coffee or blueberry coffee.  I just love it!

For the rest of the day, I have this good feeling because I know I’ve got something important done, and it’s not lingering in my mind as something I needed to get to ‘later on.’

I try to write my daily posts early after my exercise cause I got all my thought juices running.

All of the above is much easier said than done.

Naturally, we all want to take the path of least resistance.  It’s much easier to check emails or social media first thing in the morning.  You don’t have to concentrate so much.  It’s stimulating.  And you at least feel ‘busy.’  But busy does not equal productive.

I know a lot of people who are in an extreme state of busyness for 14 hours a day, 7 days a week, who never get ahead.

The trick is to know the difference between what’s busy work and what’s productive work, and to not fool yourself into believing one is the same as the other.

So find the time of day when you’re at your peak state and you have the most energy, and get the most important and creative tasks done at that time. When you’re feeling less energetic and focused, then you can use that time for ‘reactive’ tasks like checking and responding to email.

So that is my world and how I get things done.  Give it a try for 21 days.  Remember 21 days to create a habit. successful people daily routine

Internet Marketing Competition

“Whenever I may be tempted to slack up and let the business run for awhile on its own impetus, I picture my competitor sitting at a desk in his opposition house, thinking and thinking with the most devilish intensity and clearness, and I ask myself what I can do to be prepared for his next brilliant move.”

~ H. Gordon Selfridge

A Clear Sign You Are In A Healthy Exciting Business

I was thinking today how we are always competing with someone in one way or another. It is just a human characteristic. Very normal, but not all of us see it that way. When we feel someone is competing with us, we take it personal and get all up tight about.

Billie Scott here sharing my feelings as to why I think that competition is a very good thing for our internet sales, internet business.

I look at competition as a very positive thing.  Competition means people are making money.  It means the market is big enough to support a lot of businesses.  It means there are plenty of opportunities for joint ventures over the coming years.

Competition Sets The Quality Levelonline sales competition

It’s very similar to the internet marketing industry.  Every day, 1,000’s of people start an online business.

Most fail of course.  But it’s not due to the market being too crowded – it’s because they don’t know how to run a business, plus the image of an online business is “put it on the internet and it will sell”. Not true! Would be entrepreneurs can’t figure it out before they get discouraged and quit.

The main reason they don’t make it, is they can’t get their marketing right.  Either their offers don’t convert, or they don’t know how to get traffic.

Believe it or not, your first sales are super important.  They actually set the tone for your business.

Me personally, I like to think of my business as an information marketing business and I direct my marketing to represent what I am selling.  Information products that when implemented correctly can make my buyers a lot of money just as it has for me.

Tips To Stay Ahead Of Your Competition

  • Develop a winning offer (whatever you are selling needs to convert/sell)
  • Map out a sales funnel
  • Create high quality marketing videos
  • Professionally written sales letter
  • A written blog
  • Autoresponder with followup email sequenceonline sales competition

Of course, these marketing assets don’t make money by themselves. You need to get them in front of people.

The quickest way to get traffic to your offers is with paid traffic. But let’s say you are like me. I had to start with the cheapest traffic around.  FREE TRAFFIC.

Easy as 1-2-3.  My mentor James turned me on to all his free traffic moves and yes! they did work. Takes some time but it does work. Traffic started coming to my offers and I started to sell and my bank account has been growing ever since.

If you are interested in learning about how to get FREE traffic to your offers, visit my HOW TO blog Billie Scott’s Internet Marketing Blog.

At the end of the day, with any information marketing business, it’s about getting people in front of the offers. It’s about quantity and quality of clicks to your landing pages and sales pages.

Just remember that you could have the greatest offers, the slickest branding videos, the most valuable information products in the world, but they’re going to be useless unless you get them in front of people.

Getting your offers in front of people is how you turn your information marketing business into money.

This is Billie Scott and I would love to hear or read your comment.  I am on your side.  My happy place is at the beach as well as helping fellow online marketers make sales.

7 Tips On How To Be A Better Marketer and Reach Your Target Audience

“Marketing Is Too Important To Be Left To The Marketing Department.”

~David Packard

Hey guys Billie Scott here with a topic I want to discuss with you.  You guessed it, marketing.

In almost every industry, the people who climb to the top and separate themselves from the herd are going to be the ones who successfully advertise on a regular basis to attract new leads. Unfortunately, most business owners don’t know how to do this.  Do you agree or disagree?

Now we don’t have a crystal ball to predict the outcome of ever marketing campaign but experience does give us a sense of what may work.  You and I as marketers run ads and should keep a close watch on what is producing for us and what is wasting our dollars.

Here Are 7 Things You Need To Look For, To Help Determine If Your Offers Will Be Successfulhow to be a better marketer

  1.  Your sales copy must be loaded with benefits that are important to your prospect. Make a list of the top reasons why your prospects want what you’re offering them. Remember, sell the sizzle not the steak. Benefits, not features.
  2.   Protect them with a strong money-back guarantee. The more you take the pressure away from your prospect, the more likely they will be to respond to your offer. There may be times when you need to have a “no-refund” policy. But especially when you’re offering a low-cost offer to attract a new customer, give them an “easy out” if they’re not happy with their purchase. Don’t be afraid to offer free gifts that they get to keep even if they get a refund. Strong guarantees make you more money, because they increase your conversions.
  3. Make sure your sales copy flows and reads easily. You don’t want people to struggle to understand the offer you’re making them. K.I.S.S. – Keep It Simple, Silly.
  4. Remember, it’s all about them, not you. So when you’re writing, use lots of YOU’s and only a few l’s when necessary.
  5. Don’t make yourself sound too smart. Unless you’re selling to college professors, most people read at about a 3rd grade level. Use short words and short sentences. Even if you’re positioning yourself as an authority in your industry, people don’t like being talked down to.
  6. Offer your prospects at least one, but possibly a few, free gifts with their purchase. People like to get more value for their money, and a few nice bonus gifts can help even more people make the decision to say YES to your offer.
  7. Don’t forget to tell people exactly how to order. And giving them multiple ways to order will always increase your response. Adding a phone number to an online form can increase your response from skeptical people.

I have been studying sales and buyers habits for a few years now and I have seen that success in sales has the 7 components I defined as 7 tips for successful marketing.  Take each tip and study it and check to see if you are using it in your marketing.  Chances are that you are not.

This being said, now is the time to make the improvement.

How Can You Compete With Established Marketers In Your Industry?

“I don’t really like talking. I like to execute. I’m not a talking person. I’m an action person.”

Kevin Gates

It’s Just A Lot Of Daily Practice

Hey guys what I want to blog to you about today is all about rapid content creation and how this is going to help you get up and running against your competition.  All these videos you see here were created with one of the methods I describe in today’s email that I will also turn into a blog post.  There’s no reason why you can’t do the same thing for your business and take it to the next level.

I will admit, all this takes time and work.  But how else are you going to scale such a mountain?

Let’s address a question I’m sure is on a lot of business owners’ minds when they first start marketing online: how to compete with established marketers

How can you possibly compete with all the more established marketers in your industry, who seemingly publish endless amounts of high quality content every day?

They churn out new videos, instagram posts, Facebook live streams, emails, blog posts, podcasts… and much more, and you could be still struggling to find the time to get any content done.

So where do you start?  Should you try to do videos? Should you write? What topics should you write about?  Or should you just try to outsource it all?

Lets first put things in perspective…

how to compete with established marketers

Most of them have been doing this a lot longer than you.  For example – I myself have put out a huge amount of content.  This is one of my daily goals.  Yet I’m in my 7th year of marketing online, have well over 1,000 hours of searching for and implementing content.

I’ve also figured out a lot of hacks to leverage content (eg. like taking one video, turning it into a blog post, then scraping the audio for a podcast, then cutting segments and add to other segments to create entirely new videos).

It’s just practice.  You become much more proficient at all of this just through lots of daily practice.

Don’t Worry About The Quality, Just Get It Out There

Most people are not good at doing videos when they start.  I certainly wasn’t (looking back at the videos I used to do 5 years ago, they’re almost painful for me to watch now – they were that bad).

But remember, you will always be your worst critic.  So it’s best to create the content, then just release it right away.  Don’t over analyze it or question the quality too much – just get it out there.

A few more pointers on how to create content faster;

Typically I’ll write out all of my ideas on a notepad. For example, if I’m coming up with articles for my Blogs.  (I have 2 sites) Billies Scott’s Internet Marketing Blog where I share content of interest and Billie Scott’s Internet Marketing Blog where I post strickly HOW To articles.

Whenever I get an idea for 1 of these blogs I write it down and allow my thoughts to help it grow.

For me creating videos is not an enjoyable process.  Some people love it and trully enjoy being in front of a camera.  But I am lucky.  You have heard me mention my friend James.  He is a ham and a half and loves to record videos. established marketers  Plus he does a fantastic job.  That is how I get all my HOW TO videos.  Use the idea.

The third piece of advice I’ll give you;

Forget about creating content that’s all about you and your brand.

That’s the first instinct for most business owners. They think they need to talk up their business – what they’ve done, what they can do and what they’ve got to offer.

Most people don’t care about you or your business.  They’re focused on what’s going on in their own world and how YOU can solve their problem or make their life better.

So with every piece of content you create, focus on relating everything back to them.  Use a lot more of the ‘you’ word than the ‘I’ word. Think about what’s useful, interesting or entertaining to them.

And if you’re still unsure about coming up with ideas for content, hiring writers and video editors, and identifying your customer avatar.

Testimonial Proof In Your Marketing

“I believe that you have to understand the economics of a business before you have a strategy, and you have to understand your strategy before you have a structure. If you get these in the wrong order, you will probably fail.”

                                                                                                                      ~ Michael Dell

Testimonials and Case Studies Are The “Magic Bullet” That Can Get Skeptical Prospects Off The Fence.

Hey guys Billie Scott here with more for you to think about.

Have you ever had a potential customer right on the edge of buying from you, but at the last minute they back out because of they’re just too skeptical?

We have all been there and man what disappointment.Testimonial Proof In Your Marketing

The way you overcome this is with an abundance of proof in your marketing – lots of testimonials.

Let’s say you’re selling an information product in the business-to-business category about how to get more leads.

In your marketing you say within 7 days of implementing these strategies, they should be generating 200 leads a day.

A lot of your prospects, in the back of their mind, will be saying, “yeah, right…”

The way you overcome that is with an abundance of testimonials. And when I say testimonials, I don’t mean people saying kind words about you and your product. I mean case studies of them getting real results.

For example, you might have a video of one of your customers, John. In the video, John shows a screen shot of his back office. Monday, he got 220 leads. Tuesday, he got over 300 leads. Those are the kind of testimonials you want.

But here’s what’s REALLY powerful in a testimonial or case study.

When your prospects look for testimonials, what they really latch on to is a testimonial from someone just like them. Someone they can relate to with a similar background or situation.  I can tell you this really works.  When I use my own exoeriences in my marketing I see a sharp increase in signups for my email list.

I’ll give you a real-life example this time.Testimonial Proof In Your Marketing

When I first got into the industry of affiliate marketing back in 2012, I was nearly about to start working with a lady who was making over $50,000 a month.

I saw her ad and filled out her online application form. She called me back and tried to sign me up for her affiliate marketing program.

A week later, I start researching a different affiliate marketing program and I started talking to another guy. I ended up cutting ties with the first lady and the program she was recommending, and choosing to sign up with the second program.

Why you might ask.  Simple, he relayed to me experiences he had being taken advantage of by other so called gurus.  He told me how much he had spent trying to achieve and set up his online business.  Same as me.  He showed me how he had helped other young entrepreneurs and I wanted the same.

So now when I talk to people who want to do the same thing I am doing, I show them the exact steps that I took to get where I am.  If I can do it, they can do it.  And this little process makes me  lot of money.  It can for you too.

And one last tip. If your products really are good and live up to the claims you make, you shouldn’t have any problems getting those you help give you credible testimonials.

Well, thank you for following my blog and reading my blog posts.  I will hit you with a new post tomorrow. In the mean time if you want to take action and learn how to set up and have a successful online business then sign up for FREE.

Yes I said free tutorials on how to set up and make money online.  This is the way I got started and I am glad I took the step.  The difference between you and me?? I paid.

Mentor- Help Support Advice Guidance

“Show me a successful individual and I’ll show you someone who had real positive influences in his or her life. I don’t care what you do for a living—if you do it well I’m sure there was someone cheering you on or showing the way. A mentor.”

                                                                ~ Denzel Washington

You Want To Be Successful With Your Business.. Then This Is What You Need

Hey guys,

The idea of a ‘self-made’ man or woman is rubbish.  Everyone who’s ever accomplished big things had mentors and teachers.

It’s the same with all online business ventures.  Great mentors in the business:

1) Daegan Smith  mentor help support advice guidance

Daegan Smith.  Around 2010, he was doing six figures a month, while I was making practically nothing.

One time, I promoted one of his products (a $1 trial of his monthly program) during an affiliate contest, and I ended up winning one of the prizes. It was a choice of an iPad, or a one-hour consult with Daegan.

As much as I liked the iPad, I figured the knowledge was more valuable.

So we got on the phone, I was a little starstruck at first, but Daegan was a down-to-earth guy who genuinely cared.

He gave me a lot of insights during that one hour, so over the next year or so, I kept buying his time whenever I needed help to get my business to the next level.

2) Jonathan Budd  mentor support help advice guidance

Jonathan back around(2011) he was miles ahead in terms of results.  When I first heard of him, he’d done close to $10 million in revenue online.

So I looked at his results and thought, “if I could even achieve 1/10th of his results by the time I get to his age, that would be amazing.”

I wanted to learn what he was doing, so I did the same thing to get in contact with him as I did with Daegan: I promoted his product in an affiliate contest.

(By the way, that’s a big hint for you. If you want to get the attention of any influential business person in your industry, promote for them and make them money.

I have gotten the opportunity to learn, and getting a closer view of how a fast-growing online info-marketing business ran.

Before then, I had this belief that all successful marketers planned everything out many months in advance, and everything was the result of a meticulous plan.

What I saw in reality though, was that success can be messy and chaotic.  When you’re moving super fast, things are breaking, and you’re reacting as you go.  That’s how it is in all fast growing companys.  The chaos is a sign you’re doing things right.

Jonathan makes things up as he goes along.  What I discovered is you have to get off your tush and do it.  It doesn’t have to be perfect, just do it.  Sounds like a comercial right?

I discovered I’d been moving way too slowly in my business, wanting to get everything perfect and fully-formed in my mind before executing.  So from that point on I developed more of a Ready, Fire, Aim approach to doing things.  I made a lot more mistakes, but the results were night and day compared to before.

3) Dan Kennedy  mentor help advice support guidance

I have never met Dan Kennedy, but I’ve learned an immense amount from his books and courses over the years.  In fact the first direct response marketing book I got was one of his, from my university’s library.  I remember reading how he charged 70k to write a sales letter on the back page, and being incredibly impressed by that.

As far as the principles (not tactics) of direct-response marketing and information marketing go, his material helped me a lot.

If you want to know how to get paid selling your information, you can’t go past Dan Kennedy.

4) Warren Buffett  mentor help advice support guidance

Again, I’ve never met Warren Buffett, but I’ve learned more from him about the grand scheme of business and investing than from anyone else.

The first book I read by Warren Buffet is called “Warren Buffett Speaks” by Janet Lowe, and it was basically a book of quotes by Warren Buffett.

If you didn’t know, Warren Buffett is one of the best investors who ever lived, worth well over $50 billion.

So those are just some of my influences over the years.  I’ve had many more as well.

Finding successful people in your field, and then finding a way to get around them and observe their behaviors, attitudes, ways of relating with people, their focus, their habits… all of those things which may be largely unconscious to them, but which you can model and mimic – that is the one of the fastest shortcuts you can have for becoming successful in your field.

After I read that book, I started studying Warren Buffett in a lot of depth. I bought more books about him, I watched every video about him I could find on YouTube, and most valuable of all, I started reading his letters to his shareholders.

Warren Buffett’s principles have always guided my investing decisions to this day.

So those are just some of my influences over the years.  I’ve had many more as well.

Finding successful people in your field, and then finding a way to get around them and observe their behaviors, attitudes, ways of relating with people, their focus, their habits… all of those things which may be largely unconscious to them, but which you can model and mimic – that is the one of the fastest shortcuts you can have for becoming successful in your field.

Are You Guilty of Stealing Images?

How to Avoid Breaking Copyright Law [Infographic]

You may have noticed some recent changes to Google image searches: The “View Image” button has been removed (although you can still view an image in context—on its original webpage), and the copyright notice has been made more prominent.

The intent of those changes was likely to reduce copyright infringement. “Copying an image from Google is so easy, many people don’t even know it’s wrong,” says an infographic about online image theft and copyright infringement. “But unintentional stealing is still stealing.”

That’s why marketers, bloggers, and others using images online need to make sure their images are sourced from legal, reputable sites. The graphic, created by reverse image-search service Berify, explains the consequences of using someone else’s images and ways to source images legally.

It also shows photographers and artists how to protect their images and what actions can be taken if they suspect a theft has occurred.

Before you put your reputation—and wallet—at risk, and before you accidentally steal from someone’s livelihood, check out the infographic to make sure you know how to source your online images. Just tap or click to see a larger version.

Wowee guys this is serious.  Please keep this information firmly in mind when you are going to “Save image”.

Video and images are a very important part of our marketing.  So we have to use the material that is available to use and be respectful of photographers and other media folks work.  Lookf for free images, images that are public domain or contact the owner and pay a fee in order to use a particular image.

There are also several online image providers that you can become a member and have use of their images.  There is a way to stay in the groove, but you have to look for it and adapt.
