Why Your Business Doesn’t Have To Stop Because You Do.

I recently rejoined a business I had left, I rejoined it not for the money because I wanted to remove some content from two of my blogs onto another hosting.  Within 4 hours of signing up for a $1 trial of the system yesterday I got 1 $144 residual commission email notification.  Then this morning I woke up to another $144 residual commission email notification.

I can pretty much guarantee you this money did not come from any work I have done in the last month that’s for sure but still the income is coming in residually.  Of course a lot of people hear about other making residual incomes online while you sleep.

It is the part about setting it up and figuring out how it works that baffles people. So in today’s post I want to talk about a few ways that you can make your business work even when you are sick,on holiday,sleeping or worse..

The beauty about this is sometimes you do not realise the full benefits of residual income until one day you really need it.   Like when my son broke his leg a couple of years ago, the thing is he didn’t want to be left alone.  He was scared he might never be able to walk properly again. (me too)  The thing is during that time thousands of dollars still came in that month even though I stopped working for about six weeks.

If I had of been an employee I would have had to leave my son to go to a job every day while he suffered with only one parent or a babysitter.  Thankfully in our family that does not happen. I get to take and pick up my kids from school everyday.   Unless I go to a mastermind or a seminar that I choose to actually go to.

I get to see my little baby son growing up every day to see him start to chatter to watch him take his first steps. Yes my son knows and loves his daddy because he is always around.  I am not a stranger 🙂 like some fathers, when they come home from work many times their kids are in bed already. If they are lucky they get to see them at weekends or when they are off work. If they have enough energy left on their days off to do anything.

There is nothing more about being an employee that sticks in my head than pretending to look busy and do something trying to justify a measly hourly salary.  Being told when you can go on holiday where you have to live because your boss or company wants you there.  Yes, while you work to build their dreams you are actually their paid slave how much does your boss think you are worth $10 an hour?

Okay now let’s get back to ways to automate your business again first thing you want to setup are residual income streams. That is products that people pay for monthly that you actually get a monthly income from.  Your job is to go to Google and research those residual income products as I am not going to start listing them all here as I could be here all day.

Once you find the products you want to sell you create a blog or website where you can either review the products or services. Or create content that is useful to your potential buyers.  If you want to automate you can spend one full day writing 5 blog posts and then schedule the posts one every weekday using the WordPress Calendar scheduling option.

This means your posts will go out daily on complete autopilot even while you sleep or go out to the beach or a restaurant.   Then spend another day creating 5 You Tube Videos again you want to create content that is useful or informative for your targeted customers.

So if you are a local estate agent you may create a post telling people how to add value when selling their property in a specific town or city.   Then sell them your houses or house selling service on the backend. Once more You Tube has a scheduling feature like WordPress so you can schedule your videos to be posted on You Tube whenever you like.  Be it 11.55 PM on New Years Eve or 6am in the morning Monday till Friday.

Once you have scheduled your blog posts and videos you can then then join a service called onlywire. Which allows you to post your content to all the different social networks, Facebook Groups,Facebook Pages ETC.  If you want true automation create a feed from your wordpress blog. This costs about $60 a year but is well worth it considering the amount of work that it saves you.

What will happen then is every time your automated content is posted on your WordPress Blog, it will be submitted to all your social networks and Facebook Groups And Pages automatically without you needing to lift a finger. This is true automation at work .

There is also another service which is free called IFTTT you can tell it to post a message on your Facebook wall or other social networks every time you post a You Tube video.  Post a picture on Instagram or other Social Networks. There are endless different recipes to choose from.

This is another great tool to add to your automation arsenal. If you want more trainings or to get your online business setup then click the link below to get started today.

Why Your Business Doesn’t Have To Stop Because You Do.

Ten Blogging Tips For Beginners

Okay you have taken the dive and decided to start your first blog on the Internet.  As with starting anything new you will have lots of questions.  Or you will be wondering what questions you should be asking .

These are some of the ones I think are important to answer and understand right from the start.

  1. Q Free Vs Paid – There are options for lots of different blogging tools on the Internet a lot of them are Free in order to cut down costs should I use all the Free ones.  A There is a very small minority of cases where you will find great tools for some jobs on the Internet and they will work fine.  There are also a lot of free things that could waste years of your time and energy, because you use the free service.  Parking your blog or website on a free hosting account like blogger or wordpress.com not .org means your website is hosted by Google the same if you put your videos on You Tube, Facebook,Twitter or any social network. I have had a You Tube account deleted with 350 videos for no good reason, had a Twitter account with over 60,000 followers suspended for 5 years again for no good reason. And know lots of people that had the same issues with Facebook.  So I suggest do not build your house in your neighbours garden, for the same reason do not host your blog on a free platform that can be deleted for any or no reason. By a disgruntled employee who is having a bad day, or a competitor who sees your video on You Tube outranking his video  and flagging your account to get it deleted.   Buy your own hosting account host your own videos on a paid hosting service like Amazon S3 or at least the videos you would like to keep. Post all your content on your own blog or website not just on Facebook or Twitter.  If you create 1 video a day getting 350 videos like me deleted is maybe 1 years work which could have took up two hours of your day to record,edit and upload to You Tube.  What is 700 hours of your time worth for you?   I would prefer to pay $2 a month for video hosting on Amazon than do $7000 worth of work that gets deleted (That’s if you are on $10 an hour minimum wage)  What’s it worth to you?
  2. Q What do I blog about? A Wow where do we start there are so many possibilities here.  It depends what your plans are or if you have actually made any yet.   If you haven’t there are a couple of questions you need to ask yourself. Are you blogging for glory or because you enjoy it as a hobby. Or is it to create a business that makes you a good income?  If it is 1 or 2 then just blog about anything you like that comes to mind.  If you are blogging to actually make money find a good niche like money,digital marketing,business tools or trainings,beauty or health or diet products or courses.
  3. Q What essential tools will I need to run a blog or website?  A The tools you will need to run a serious online business would be blog hosting an autoresponder of course a decent laptop or desktop computer will also help. This would be just the basic essential tools I recommend of course there will probably be many other tools you will choose to purchase along your journey as well.
  4. Q How do I create great content that people want to read?  A I use the So what analogy, nothing drives me crazier than going to a website where someone brags about their company, their compensation plan, their qualifications etc. People want to know WIIFM What’s in it for me. So if someone says we have the best compensation plan so what. Our company is in business 40 years so what. I am the top seller in our company. So what.   Bottom line is as a reader of your blog or website what can you do to help me?

5. Q Why does my blog  or website not make money? A This is a big question for this there is good news and bad news.  The good news is it is normally easy to work out why you do not make money. The bad news is you actually need to do some work.  If you are having no income after 6 months of blogging online here are some of the questions you want to ask yourself.

1. Am I posting relevant content for my readers on a regular basis?

2. Have I got a call to action link for people to find out more about or buy my products and services

3. Does my blog or website target a specific niche or give some relevant information or products that my market                are ready to buy?

4. Am I capturing email addresses of of my readers and following up with relevant emails or information?

5. Am I focused on selling a product when creating content or am I focused on giving great value to my readers and asking for them to buy on the backend?

6. Am I advertising my online business on Facebook,Google,You Tube and other relevant social networks on a daily basis?

If you are not doing these 6 things above then there is a good chance you could end up being in the 90% of people who make less than $100 a month from marketing your business or services  online.

6. Q What can I do to get lots of visitors to my blog or website? A Create regular quality content on your website including one long post of 1000 – 1500 words per week. Post my content on targeted Facebook groups,create Facebook paid ads,Post your content on Twitter,Pinterest and Instagram.

7. Q Will I be able to make money blogging from my blog or website? A Yes you will if you treat is seriously like a business and not a hobby or a lotto ticket.

8. Q How long does it take to make money from a blog or website? A I would set my self a reasonable expectation of about a year if you are blogging but you may get results starting in 6 to 9 months or less.  An even better way to do it would be to resolve to keep blogging until you reach your targeted income and beyond. Quitters never win..

9. Q Who is the best person to  make my website or should I just do it myself? A If you have the luxury of having a lot of cash available you could outsource everything from your website design to your content etc etc.  If on the other hand you are a little strapped for cash I would recommend getting a mentor who is making money to teach you how to setup your online business.  You will have to invest some money but the truth is very few serious businesses ever get started without some investment. Which will either be time or money, the thing is you can get more money but once your time is gone. It’s gone…

Ten Blogging Tips For Beginners

Blogging For Business -Have You Started Yet

If you are running a business whether it be online or even a traditional business. Then blogging for business might be for for you it can be a bit time consuming but if you are doing it yourself it can be done relatively cheaply. One of the great thing about producing quality blog content for your business niche or customers is that your pages and posts can rank on Google Search.   This means when your customers type in specific keywords in Google your website can appear in the search.  Thereby driving visitors straight to your business website.

Once visitors arrive on your business website there are a few different advantages.

  1. If your website is professional and contains great information it let’s people see you are an expert at what you do.
  2. It can help you build loyalty ,trust and a likability factor with your customers, clients or prospects much more easily without direct contact with them.
  3. It can help you target what your readers,customers,prospects interests are therefore making it easier to provide them with exactly what they are looking for.
  4. It gives you the opportunity to build a list on your autoresponder, and because you know what list they subscribed too. You also know what they are looking for, all you have to do is give them or sell them it.
  5. It gives people the chance to get in touch with you and find out more about what you do.
  6. It gives you a familiarity with your audience, who may see your blog posts regularly on the search engines or via social media sites like Facebook, You Tube, Twitter,Pinterest,Linked In ETc…
  7. It gives you a platform to sell directly to your customers without having to even talk to them.
  8. It gives you the opportunity to sell products and services 24/7 to people from all around the world, even while you sleep.
  9. There is no limit to the amount of content you can add to your blog and be found online, apart from the cost of your webhosting.
  10. It  gives you an opportunity to build a fan base if you are a celebrity or an expert at something.
  11. Let’s people learn more about your business and in some cases your personality.
  12. It gives your visitors content that they can share with their social media friends or followers.  The main thing is to remember to add share buttons on all the pages and posts of your blog.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

It really does not matter what kind of business you have. Blogging for business together with a great Social Media strategy, will increase your exposure to new potential business. Plus will help bring back past clients, as they will remember the people they see regularly on social media. And forget the people they don’t.

The the other day I started thinking about a few people I haven’t though about in years. They where friends I have on Facebook, the reason it took me years to remember them is because they do not post on Social Media.  How crazy it is after 5 years a few peoples names came into my head, imagine if they had been posting daily on Facebook and other social networks?  They would have been the first people that came into my head.

When people think of a business, a service, a brand or a personality. If that is you then you will be the first one to get paid.

I have used this strategy with many blogs and websites over the years whether it is an Appliance Repair Man, Cafe or Restaurant,Financial Advisor or mortgage brokers, High street business,surveyors real estate agents or shops.  Marketing your stuff on the Internet just works.

Using social media alone without a base like a blog or website is like building your business on your neighbours land.  At best it can dangerous and at worst your whole business and advertising can disappear overnight. It has happened to me in the past on You Tube on Twitter and on Facebook my content just disappearing or being deleted.  And it has happened to lots of my clients and colleagues too.

12 Mistakes Newbies Make When Creating A Blog Or Website

  1.  They don’t start to build a database or list on a proper autoresponder system, many times they think by doing this they are saving money but it actually costs them money not building a mailing list of active subscribers.
  2. They choose a free website like one on wordpress.com or blogger unfortunately this means their blog or website is hosted on someone else’s land. So anytime one Google employee doesn’t like something they see or on your website or are even just having a bad day all your work can be deleted and dissapear at the touch of a button.   Would you build a traditional business in your neighbours garden?   If not then I would gave you the same advice for starting up your own blog or website.
  3. Not getting a mentor and trying to learn everything themselves, this can work out okay but can increase your learning curve by years. Question you need to ask yourself is how much is a few years of your time worth and if you work out the price.  You might find getting a mentor who has experience starting up online businesses is a lot cheaper.
  4. After 5 years of working online they still call themselves a newbie.  In fact I know one person who has be doing stuff more than double this time and still acts like they are a newbie.  The fact is nobody wants to learn how to build their business from a newbie. So once you learn how to do something properly then you are no longer a newbie.  Remember to Learn – Do -Teach.
  5. They ask their friends for help to setup their online business.  If your friends don’t make much money online getting them to teach you how to setup an online business, is probably not the best or most profitable idea.
  6. They skimp on the tools and or services they really need to save a few $$$$$$$$..   Problem is it can end up costing them thousands in wasted time and energy by doing the wrong things.
  7. They focus on their business!! Yes instead of focusing what their customer wants they focus on what they want instead.  This is an instant way to lose money, nobody cares that you want to make money online, they are online trying to find the solution for their own problems. So if you don’t solve their problems with what you have to offer then the chances are you won’t make too much money.
  8. No call to action- After blogging for anywhere from 10 mins to 2 hours or more, what would you like your reader to do at the end of reading your content.  Missing this is a huge mistake which could and likely will leave you broke.
  9. Not having a proper payment system this is huge.  There are many payment systems quite a lot of them are crap I am not going to go into the detail in this blog post. But from experience I can tell you it is true if you want to make more money setup a good payment system on your blogs or websites from day 1. Here is a free trial for  one that I use .
  10. Jumping from one thing to another and not getting anything finished properly this is another big way to end up being a broke blogger.  When you start something see it through to the finish before starting your next project, at least until you start making some money anyway. 🙂
  11. Wanting everything to be perfect – Chances are everything will never be perfect, the time, the place,the video,the product,the free giveaway to build your list.  Just do it and put it out there don’t wait for two years to share your first blog post on social media JUST DO IT…
  12. They don’t know what type of person is their ideal customer, just by doing this it can make targeting your market and creating content much easier, and will also get you much better results.

12 Mistakes Newbies Make When Creating A Blog Or Website

How To Build A Blogging Business Working Part Time

I got a call today in fact it was a voicemail from a long time friend who I have known for many years.Unfortunately my iPhone battery ran flat and I missed the call.  Recently I happened to bump into him after about 17 hours on Facebook. Let’s just call him Stevie as I don’t want to put him on the spot.

He basically said I am sick of my job and I have decided I will do whatever I have got to do to quit it for good, Could you train me how to start my own online business I want to get started right away.   The fact is lot’s of people slave away half or in many cases their whole life.  And realise suddenly after 20 years or so that having a job is a dead end plan.

You have a choice and work to build someone else’s business by being their employee.  Or you can start your own business.  Generally as an employee there are two large probabilities.

1.  You will probably be lucky if you are getting much above minimum wage.

2. Even if you do get a high salary then as an employee the government will tax you stupid in fact you may lose up to 40% of your wages in tax.

So what is the solution you may ask?

Option 1 Take the plunge give in your notice to your employer and quit your job permanently and start a full time business.

Option 2 Instead of spending your time off at the pub or watching T.V. and getting brainwashed, spend that time starting your own Part Time Business Online.

The are a few advantages of starting your own business part time

Taxes is one of the biggest expenses you will pay in your lifetime watch the video below to see who pays the most in taxes and why most families stay broke.

Personally I am an all or nothing type of person so when I decided to start a business online. I burned my bridges as far as jobs where concerned I had no intention of giving myself a plan b option.

Though depending on your financial situation starting an online business part time for you could be the way to go, it has worked for millions of other people in the past and will continue to do so.

What determines whether you succeed or not I think is down to your determination to succeed,education (Learning from your mistakes and improving along the way) Or learning from other peoples mistakes. And having a non quit mentality is also A valuable asset.

It took me a few years to figure out how to run an online business. I have over 10 years experience so if you want to shortcut the time to making money online then check out the options I have available to help start or boost your online business.

The great thing about Live videos on Facebook is that they get shown to more of your friends and followers so it is a great way to get more views to your Facebook account.  Up until now you may have thought that only a few special people have had  access to this service because you might not have seen the go live button on your Facebook app on your iPhone yet. 

The good news is if you do not have it there is a very simple and easy way to get it installed on your phone. All you need to do is uninstall your FB App and your FB Messenger and then reinstall them.  After this is done when you open up Facebook you will see the go live button, which means that you now have  Facebook live active on your iPhone.  This will give you another tool to go out there and drive more traffic to your website or blog. Or to get the word out about upcoming business opportunities etc. 

I saw a few really confusing videos showing you how to uninstall FB App and Messenger which I couldn’t even understand. Finally I decided that you might need a much simpler video for uninstalling the apps you can see it below.

10 Things To Do On Your Blog Or Website

In todays post I am going to be talking about 10 things that you can do to your blog to get more interaction, get you more leads which will also help you get more sales in the long term.

  1. Create a free giveaway for your readers so that you can get more names and emails of all your subscribers.
  2. Add a picture by creating or adding a featured image picture to your blog it allows you an extra way to get traffic from the search engine via Google images.
  3. Follow me button or links for all your social networks – The more places your customers/subscribers/readers get to see your updates the more likely they will be to do business with you. If they like what they see.
  4. Add a Facebook like widget on the sidebar of your blog so people can like your Facebook page and see your latest updates.
  5. Add a work with me page somewhere visible, so that people will know what to do if they want to find out more about what your business is.
  6. Add a contact me page and install a contact form which is connected to your autoresponder.  That way anyone who contacts you becomes an instant  subscriber on your list.
  7. Think about your readers how can you help them and provide them with information they are searching for before creating content for your blog or website.
  8. At the bottom of all your blog posts create a call to action tell your readers what you want them to do. (With clear instructions)
  9. Start with the end in mind before creating a piece of content first decide what is the purpose of the article or video,podcast etc.  To get a subscriber to your list? To make a sale? To get a new follower on Twitter?  To get a new Facebook friend or fan. To get someone to subscribe to your You Tube channel Etc…
  10. Ask your readers questions and tell them to comment in the comments section, a blog with lots of comments is a lot more interactive and tends to get more traffic and results  than a blog without comments. If you have an email list a good idea is to email them your latest blog posts. This will help you get more comments the first comment is normally the hardest to get. After that people generally continue in the conversation.
