A couple months ago I saw a TV show on A&E that featured a woman who suffered from obsessive-compulsive disorder. She was so paranoid about germs that she would literally clean her kitchen for hours on end and she’d have anxiety attacks if someone else made dinner because she didn’t know whether or not they’d washed their hands while cooking or used clean utensils to make the meal.
All right… In this post, I’m going to shift gears from the general tone of this site. Usually I’m a pretty happy-go-lucky kind of guy who uses humor and personal experiences to get my point across.
For the last few weeks, I’ve been trying to come up with a general theme for this site. If you’ve read some of my posts then you’ve seen that I talk about a wide variety of subjects. Like personal growth, lifestyle design, and online business success.
The problem I’m having is this… In my head, these are all related to one another. But to the outside observer, I feel like these general topics might seem unrelated. In fact, some of them could appear to be completely contradictory.
Okay, we’ve come to the conclusion of our discussion of how to create an information product and then market it. Here’s what we’ve covered so far:
Hello again! Today we’re going to review the 3rd part in our series about how to create an information product and market it. Up till now we’re covered a few important principles: The creation process and presentation.
So what are we covering in this section? In a word, Systems.
As I mentioned in a post about affiliate marketing, I’m a firm believer in systems thinking. But this also applies to how I structure my information product.
In this video, I discuss the step-by-step formula I use to earn six-figures with affiliate marketing. Here you’ll see the diagram of how I get prospects to sign up for my email list, including a discussion of the way I earn an affiliate commission from my subscribers.
Also, I mention a few tools and concepts in this video. The following links provide extra information on the things I discuss:
I’ve got a confession to make…
I absolutely, positively love creating systems.I get a charge by planning out something in my head and seeing this vision come to reality.Perhaps I get this from my dad who is the same way.
You might think it’s kinda weird or geeky, but I have a different viewpoint. I consider this quirk to be my core genius.
Yes, my core genius.
Do you have an online business?
Do you want more free time?
If you answered yes to both these questions then you’ll want to carefully read this post. That’s because I’m going to talk about a solution which gives me more free time and puts extra money in my pocket.
As you’ve probably heard, lots of website owners use outsourcing as a way to streamline their business. By delegating monotonous work to others they’re able to concentrate on the core tasks which produce revenue.
The question is should you outsource parts of your online business?
To answer this, I’m going to give you the five benefits I’ve personally experienced with outsourcing. Hopefully after reading this post, you’ll see why it should be a key ingredient to your online business.
Want to make a six-figure income with affiliate marketing?
Yes it’s possible. But over 99% of people fall short of this goal.
What separates that 1% from everyone else? The answer is simple…
A few days back, I gave 6 reasons why you should be an affiliate marketer. This is a business I’ve been doing for almost four years and I often encourage people to try it.
However, affiliate marketing isn’t for everyone. There are some who would be wasting their time if they tried it.
If you’re about to get started with this business, I encourage you to read on. That’s because I’m going to give you the five types of people who will fail being an affiliate marketer. You might want to reconsider your choice if any of the following sound like you:
For the last few months I’ve been using a tool that helps me make basic decisions. Created by Jed at The Newly Rich, this Workflow Diagram is great for those moments when an outside influence is trying to get more of your time.
I have this diagram printed out and tacked to my wall. Then whenever I have an idea for my affiliate marketing business, I refer to this chart. If it can’t be outsourced I’m not going to do it. My time is too important to me. So I use this diagram to remind me to NOT waste my life chasing after every little dollar.
In a recent post I discussed how my primary business is affiliate marketing. While it’s taken me a few years to make it semi-automated, I still think it’s a great option for people who want to have freedom while running a remote business. As of today, I spend an average of five hours a week on this business. The best part is… it generates a sizeable and predictable amount of income.
Is Affiliate Marketing Right For You?
I honestly feel affiliate marketing is a great business for many people. Especially those who embrace the concept of lifestyle design.
