Build Your Bridges and Build Your Business


Think of these business systems as bridges. Bridges that will provide a path for you to cross safely …to financial freedom. . . Let’s take a dentist. A dentist spends years in school learning to become a self-contained system. You, as the client, get a toothache. You go see your dentist. He fixes your tooth. You pay and go home. You’re happy and then tell all of your friends about your great dentist. In most cases, the dentist can do the entire job by himself. The problem is that if the dentist goes on vacation, so does his income. True business owners can go on vacation forever because they own a system, not a job. If the business owner is on vacation, the money still comes in.”

This quotes goes great with what I am currently living.  On Tuesday 5/29 I flew from San Francisco to Miami.  The flight from hell but that is another story.

What I want to lead up to is that even though I was in the air and totally disconnected from my world, my business continued to produce money and leads.

It is just a great feeling; to be able to travel whenever you feel like it and take your business with you.

So I’ll give you the blueprint for making this a reality.

It’s called the Smart Marketing Blueprint and you ought to print this off, and put it next to your computer. marketing strategies

Here it is:

  1. Give people what they want.
  2. Develop or sell products and services that appeal to your specific market.
  3. Make sure those items have the highest profits possible.
  4. Develop marketing systems that help you identify the right prospects and then communicate the right message to them.
  5. Reach and sell to those prospects fast and make the largest profits.
  6. Resell to your customers on a regular basis.
  7. Create sales messages that build strong bonds with your customers.
  8. Position yourself so you have unique selling position (even before you actually do!)
  9. Create offensive marketing strategies that let you control the selling process.
  10. Make specific offers to your customers on an ongoing basis.

Let’s take a closer look.

Number one is to give people what they want. Sounds easy enough, but I have seen marketers in love with a certain product that has lousy conversions but nonetheless they want to sell it and can’t understand why sales are lousy.marketing strategies

Number Two on our list is to develop products and services that are appealing to a specific market. Again, it comes back to knowing and having an intimate understanding of your marketplace.  Most companies are doing “me too” kinds of things – they’re all following the follower. The more you’re aware of that, the more you’ll see it. There are exceptions, but those are the guys who are able to see what their clients really want. You need to become one of them to make the biggest profits.

Number Three is making sure those items have the largest profit margin possible. This is one of the main secrets behind the success of many affiliates.

Number Four is to develop marketing systems that identify the right prospects and communicate the right messages to them. A marketing system is simply a process that automatically attracts and resells customers again and again for you.

Number Five is that you’ve got strive to reach, and sell, to those people fast enough to make the largest profit you possibly can. Again, most businesses don’t have any real strategy for this part.

Ok, I have given 5 of the 10 I have on my list and you should jot down as well.

I will probably continue this post tomorrow unless Miami beach gets in the way.

Operation Money Suck


“Opportunity luck is why the rich are rich. Opportunity luck is a unique type of luck the rich create as a result of having good daily habits. When you have good daily habits, you magnify the opportunity for luck to occur.”

                                                                                                                           ~ Unknown

Here is a new concept for you“Operation Money Suck”, designed to help you focus all your time, energy, and attention on making the most amount of money possible from your marketplace.

The goal is to be the dominant player in your market, to take the biggest slice of the pie for yourself.

Legally, morally, and ethically of course.                       make money online now

There is a lot of money being spent by prospects and customers in your market.

The truth of the matter is that you are surrounded by competitors who may be more aggressive than you and are going after the same people you are trying to sell.

It’s a known fact that if you do not show them why they should spend it with you, then your competitors will.

Properly handled, your marketplace is your meal ticket for life. But you have to go after it. From a metaphoric perspective, your competitors are the enemy. They’re going after the same dollars that you want to attract.

There’s very little loyalty in the marketplace. No matter how much your customers like you and trust you, if you’re not connecting with them on a regular basis and making offers to them often, your customers will buy what they need from someone else.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with making as much as you can from your market place.  It means you’re doing your job well, and that you’re providing value to your market. 

I recommend that you think about it very carefully. Here’s the basic formula.

To make the largest amount of money possible, all you have to do is sell and resell enough items, enough times, to enough people, for enough profit each time.make money online now

Commit that to memory. Hang it on your wall. Think it through. Visualize it. Internalize it. Really understand what that formula is all about. It’s as simple as it sounds.

And that’s what I have learned to be “Operation Money Suck” in a nutshell.

The Power of Positive Thinking and Hard Work Go Hand In Hand

“People don’t understand that when I grew up, I was never the most talented. I was never the biggest. I was never the fastest. I certainly was never the strongest. The only thing I had was my work ethic, and that’s been what has gotten me this far.”

                                                                             ~ Tiger Woods

Going against the “something for nothing” crowd, real success does actually require a lot of hard work. In my case, what I have achieved is far more due to working daily, than to intelligence, talent, natural ability, etc.

That doesn’t mean mean I don’t like my work – most top achieving entrepreneurs love their work – but it is usually hard work nonetheless.

Unfortunately, there’s this big movement being taught in success books that all you have to do is think positive thoughts and everything will come to you automatically. Wealth. Happiness. Sunshine. And Rainbows. Everything good in life.  making money online

Being generally optimistic is important.

In addition to having a positive attitude, you have got to work at it.  People will tell you to think positive and you’ll get positive results. This is true to a certain degree.  I most definately employ this idea in my work, But they forget to mention that along with a positive attitude you also need a solid work ethic.

It’s easy to understand why the “easy” message sells much better than the “work hard” one. Who doesn’t want to take the easiest path? We all do.

Henry David Thoreau once said,The cost of anything is measured by the amount of life you’re willing to exchange for it.”

Bottom line, if you want to be successful in your business, you have got to work at it. making money online

The people who have paid the largest price, in terms of the sacrifice, the commitment, the dedication, the hours they’ve put into their enterprises… those entrepreneurs are the people who are likely to ultimately experience the success they are seeking.

There’s a fascinating story about Bill Gates that I think illustrates this point.

He went to a Mercedes dealer to pick up a new Mercedes and one of the first things he told them was, “I want you to take the radio out of it.”

Puzzled as to why Bill Gates would want to remove the radio from his brand new car, they asked him why. He had them remove the radio simply because he didn’t want any distractions. While he would drive to and from his office, he wanted to stay focused on his work.

Now that is an extreme example, but it represents a man who was totally into his vision. He didn’t want anything to get in the way of his focus on his business goals.

Look, if you really want to make a lot of money, you can’t just have a positive attitude.

You’ll have to focus on and work hard in your business, just like Bill Gates. making money online

U.S. President Abraham Lincoln once put it, “Good things come to those who wait, but only what’s left over from those who hustle.”

It’s true. So get out there and hustle to make your business everything you want it to be.

Don’t Fire Your Boss Yet!

For an entrepreneur with ‘improbable’ and ‘impossible’ dreams, the alleged stability that comes from getting ‘a real job’ is nothing but a sign of slavery. ~Fabrizio Moreira.seth godin job

Normally people who wish to have their own business talk about their present job as if it is the worst thing in the world – a complete inconvenience where they get underpaid, overworked, their boss is greedy and taking home all the rewards.

Having had the experience of both… there are many positive aspects to having a job versus owning your own business.

For most people they ought to be thankful for their job, and thankful they don’t need to make a living by producing value in their own business (because the world would come tumbling down).

I’ve watched many people over the years talk about how much their job sucked.

Complaints about not being paid enough, made to work way too hard for too many hours, and talk about the day they were going to leave it all behind.

Finally they’d work up the courage to quit, show their resentment for the job in how they resigned (very short notice, with no thanks given), then proudly proclaim to everyone on Facebook that today was day they were free – today was the day they had ‘fired their boss’ and were going start a business and make their millions.

Fast forward 6 months, they’d be asking if their job was still available.

So before you quit your job and tell your boss to go to hell, lets discuss a few things.

First, most people quit their day job because of the time excuse; they feel they don’t have enough time to work on their business.

making money onlineI don’t really agree with this.  There’s always time.  It’s a matter of getting your priorities in order.  I would get up at 5am to get a blog post written before going to work.  I would post it and then when I got back, would followup by sending to directories and other sources.

All of us have 24 hours in the day – whether you’re Warren Buffet or a homeless beggar. It’s about priorities.

In order to start a business, you’ve got to move that business into one of your top three priority slots. The closer it is to THE most important thing in your life, the better you will usually do.

You should always be looking for opportunities during the day to accomplish useful work for your business.

This is what you need to think, “if I HAD to get this done given the time I currently have available, how would I do it?”  If there’s no choice but to get it done, amazingly somehow you’ll always find the time.

Using your job as a scapegoat holds no weight.  “I don’t have the time” is not valid anymore.  Find a way to get a few extra hours out of the day to do money producing activities in your business.

Which brings me to my next point…      making money online

Get sales coming in and replace part of your job income, before you go and quit.

It’s plain stupid to go quit a job and start a business when you haven’t even demonstrated to yourself you can get even a few customers.

Prove it to yourself first, by seeing whether people will actually pay you money for your idea or whatever you are selling.   All that matters is, has anyone actually handed you cash for it yet?

If not, you have to keep working on it.

It’s a good idea to wait till your business is almost matching the salary from your job, before you quit your job. Once you have a couple of good months where your business earned you at least 75 percent of what your regular job did, that’s a pretty good time to jump in with both feet.

And don’t quit your job because of one great customer.  Don’t get overexcited after finding your first hyper-responsive client and give up your existing income, because if something happens to that one person then you’ll have a problem.

I will admit, it has been hard for me. Many times I wanted to quit my job and dedicate 100% of my time to my online business.  I did not.  I just kept working and making my business a priority till one day the gates of prosperity opened up for me!

And here I am doing what I love to do and making money every day.

Drive Your Customers Crazy With Hot New Promotions

“If you are crazy enough to do what you love for a living then you are bound to create a life that matters”                                                                      herb kelleher                                                                                                

                              ~Herb Kelleher

                    ex-CEO of Southwest Airlines

This is part 2 of my post dated May 10, 2018.

 

We were talking about generating ideas to grow our business.

 

Jotting down everthing that came into our minds. Brainstorming from small to big ideas. From insignificant to major ideas.  Throwing them all in a pot and then sifting threw.

 

Once you come up with a bunch of ideas, you can then begin to separate the best from the rest. What are the best ideas?

 

They’re the ones that stand the greatest chance of making you the most money in the fastest time and for the longest period of time.

 

It may be difficult to come up with winning ideas, but just let the creative juices flow. What may seem small at first glance could possibly grow into something huge. A break through idea.marketing ideas

 

It might be a good idea to put yourself in your customers shoes. Practice empathy—the most important characteristic of any marketer.

From a marketing context, empathy simply means developing a deeper understanding of the very best prospects in your market. Considering things like:

 

  • Why would someone buy what you sell?
  • What is it that they are looking for?
  • What are their biggest fears, failures, and frustrations?
  • What problems if any keep them up at night?
  • What is it they desire the most?
  • What items have they gone the craziest over in the past, and why?
  • Why do your best customers keep doing business with you?
  • What are they looking for that they’re not finding?
  • What benefits excite them the most?
  • What are your most successful competitors doing right?
  • What are your most successful competitors doing wrong?
  • What ideas are working phenomenally well for others in your marketplace?

 marketing strategiesAll good questions that you need to ask yourself.  

 

These questions unlock the creative part of your mind; and as per Tony Robbins “whenever you ask a better question, you get a better answer”.

The best way to come up with a lot of good ideas is to constantly brainstorm, constantly drilling deeper and coming up with even more ideas.

 

Do this consistently and you’ll have all the ideas for promotions that make people want to do business with you.

 

Rememeber that some times imagination is worth more than knowledge.
