When you see in facebook groups that someone else has just broke 6 figures in revenue in the last 12 months, you instantly assume they have worked hard, they have hustled hard, and they must have a HUGE following!!
But what if I told you that you can go from ZERO to 6 figures in the next 12 months by not having to sell hard or hustle!
Here are my FIVE steps to starting a business online and keeping it REALLY simple so that you can bring in a healthy revenue income stream even if this is your first year trading.
1. The first step I always advise EVERYONE starting fresh with a passion & an idea to build a business empire is to start building your audience.
Build your audience FIRST.
Growing a fan following of subscribers inside your very own mini tribe will be your biggest asset when starting to build an online presents that will ultimately become your business empire.
I advise first to start growing your audience within 3...
I keep hearing the same noise from online digital course creators and experts...
"I want recurring revenue.."
"I need a membership program so I can serve my audience more often..."
"I wish I could stabilise my income better..."
And let me tell you before you read on, membership programs are NOT the answer!
If you have a big audience and you want to capitalise on it properly, here is what to do.
Firstly, let me cast my mind back to when I used to run a low-ticket membership and subscription program many years ago for online guitar teaching (this is where I started out my online empire).
I had created the BEST f&%king guitar teaching content you could find online for $29/pm. I felt so proud of myself for bottling 30 years of playing an instrument into an online resource for NEW or on going guitarists who wanted a library of amazing step-by-step how to videos!
But it wasn't the...
There, I said it.
I feel like I just stamped on the "holy grail" of marketing
Only that it's not the holy grail
In the last twelve months I've spoken with so many experts who sell online courses and they all share similar stories:
"I'm running a webinar but I'm losing money..."
"I used to run a webinar to cold traffic making thousands but it's not profitable anymore..."
"I spent $20,000 to build an evergreen webinar but didn't get any sales..."
And many more variations of the above.
Don't get me wrong.
> Webinars work.
But just like traditional launches webinars are inefficient
You could be paying anything between $1.50 per lead to $10 per lead!
And that's best case and not worst case.
I even heard a horror story recently of over $50 per lead (seriously)!
Then you have a 30% show up rate for the actual webinar (if your audience is engaging with your emails).
And then maybe 50% of attendees make it to the end of your live presentation.
(Again - For most...
A lot of Online Marketers ask... 'What is the magic to success'...
And you know that there is NO magic blue print, or get rich quick formula!
But to be successful does require understanding some basic numbers!
And if you take onboard what I am about to share with you, this could just change the way YOU look at your business going forward!
I call this...
The three rules are actually just three numbers... (percentages actually % % %)
The THREE percent numbers are: 56% / 40% / 3%
Before you get all clever on me and message saying my numbers are off because they add up to 99... Hang on tight because there is a reason for this:
Lets dive DEEP now and breakdown those percentages (trust me, this is actually fun)!
I know... I know... It is a little HARSH to say the least. But this is a true figure! At it doesn't just apply to you! This applies me, your competitors, the BIG...
What ever you call them, the one word that sums up Bots perfectly is:
Messenger bots are simply an automated service. But why should you start using them...
Let me give you some info:
A chatbot is a service powered by an automated intelligence, basically you interact with a chat bot via a chat interface such as Facebook Messenger.
I use a software platform called ManyChat which taps into Facebooks platform and lets us create powerful tools with Messenger:
Instead of browsing a website your customers will be having an informative conversation with the chatbot and find out more about their needs. Imagine it to speaking to a member of staff or someone in customer service (saving you, your company, and staff stacks of time).
According to a LiveChat report, visitors invited to chat are 6.3 times more likely to convert into customers than those who...
You no longer pick up the phone and call someone anymore!
You no longer email people as much.
So what does that mean for our businesses, and how does this change things for Marketing going forward??
I am sure you've heard the famous phrase a gazillion times used by the BIG online marketing Guru's...
And although email open rates and clickthrough rates are dropping fast... Building a list of hot contacts, raving fans, and customers is far MORE important in today's marketing vs. any BIG online social media followers!
And here is the GOOD news, you can grow your list using Messenger (and you can even collect email address inside Messenger too, super powerful).
You do NOT need a HUGE list of leads when using Facebook Messenger.
With a list of 500 leads in Messenger, vs another Business in your niche market with a list of over 8,000 Email leads. YOU will still WIN the race to converting followers into a customers.
You see, when I first...
How a simple (but powerful) Messenger chat bot funnel made a fitness expert $35,000 in 5 Days!!! (wow)!!
The story I am sharing with you today should give you 100% reason as to WHY your business needs Messenger (like now) to run your marketing campaigns!
(Fitness, Nutritionist, Mindset expert):
Christianne runs a success online program called Body Rescue, and during the whole of 2018 she ran quarterly launch campaigns for her 5-Day Sugar Free challenge.
Each launch generated a profitable success and Christianne was making 4-Figure launches. Nice!
However, to run a launch her expenses were through the roof. We're talking > High upfront costs for Facebook ads, a copywriter, FB ads Manager, Tech guy building landing pages, someone on her team managing email connections, her VA running admins, and not to mention all the usual software expense running pages/ checkout/ videos etc!
SO at the start of...
