There are quite many lies that goes around within marketing. I will now reveal some digital marketing lies that I think you should be aware of.
There are different so called push button software’s out there that promises more or less instant riches. This is misleading hype and yes.. lies. The product creators is playing on peoples desperation and need for money. It is seldom possible to make instant or fast money online, it takes work, patience and time. I am not here to point the finger or to bad talk anyone, but I feel like I need to share what I have noticed in the so called online marketing space.
They leave that out
I have seen many products where they claim that you can make thousand of dollars through free traffic. You only need to use the social sharing buttons within the product and share your link to your offer and then the money soon will be coming into your bank account. This does not work, it is possible that you can make a few sales this way but it will take time, a lot of time. The creators of these products are leaving some pieces out of the product, to make it possible for you to make any significant income with their product. And one part is quality traffic and paid traffic. Okay within some products they may offer some type of paid traffic, but in most cases they just offer this free traffic by sharing your link on social media through these social sharing buttons.
The reasons for it…
So why do these product creators leave pieces out when creating their products? It is because they want to make more money. They might launch other products that offers the pieces that was missing in their earlier products. Do not get me wrong their are legit products, products that really works, but there are also plenty of products out there that do not live up to its promises. And that are making unrealistic claims on their sales pages. You should also know that scarcity is something that is often used on sales pages. Some claims are true and some are not. Sometimes it says that the sellers/ affiliates bonuses will be removed at a certain date, and sometimes they will be removed then. But in many cases the bonuses will remain there no matter what. Or they may say that the price will be going up soon, and that is sometimes not the case either.
If it looks too good to be true
There is this saying; ”if it looks too good to be true then it usually is”. And that is the truth. if something sounds way to easy or way to good regarding how much money you will make and how fast you can make it then think twice before buying that product.
Yes there are many hyped up product that does not live up to their promises but again, there are many products, good products that truly works. So do your research and use your logical thinking before you buy any product.
I read this the other day On Tony Robbins’ facebook page. And I think it was quite interesting what Tony shared in that post. Why I think so is what I will reveal to you now.
Do You have the focus to make the energy flow?
”Where focus goes, energy flows!” Yes that line is from the post that I just mentioned, on Tony Robbins page. And what he is getting at is that what we are feeling is a result of what we’re choosing to FOCUS on. He also says that focusing on that highest vision helps create energy and more momentum. Most people focus on how to avoid pain in the short-term. If we want to push our life to the next level and experience fulfillment and true quality of life, we need to be laser-focused on our ultimate vision. We can kick feelings of frustration by changing the channel of our attention to how to help somebody in need. It all begins with what we CHOOSE to FOCUS ON. No matter if it is Good or bad, positive or negative. He also points out that it has to do with how we can serve and contribute. Focusing on that highest vision helps create energy and momentum for ourselves.
I have pointed out this earlier…
I have pointed out earlier how important it is to maintain a positive mindset, a winning mindset, so that we can work towards our goals and so that we do not end up in a negative spiral of negative thinking. Nobody of course wants to be focusing on something negative, but if we do not create a strong mindset then it is easy to fall in the trap of getting a negative self image and mindset. And about serving and contributing ; helping others.That is truly what it is about when you aim to become a successful entrepreneur and build up your income online. So if you want to make a lot of money, then help a lot of people, it is as simple as that really.. Focus more on helping people then to make that sale. Because if you focus too much on sales and making money then you will not get that much results because you may instead push people away from you.
Where is your focus at?
So where is your focus right now? Are you focusing on staying positive? So that you easier can reach your goals? What are you doing daily to stay in that positive mindset? Feel free to leave your comments below. And I will see you at the top.
Are you feeling gratitude regarding something in your life right now?
Even though we may go through hard times in life sometimes, we still can be feeling gratitude. But why should we be feeling that way? I will explain what feeling gratitude and sharing it with others can do for you now, if you continue to read… When sharing gratitude with other people that can make a person feel relaxed at at peace. I will explain how this all works.
What it comes from and what is it?
The word gratitude actually comes from the Latin language. The word gratitude means thankful and pleasing. So gratitude is about feeling thankful and pleased with different things in our lives… Gratitude can also be connected to feeling grateful. Feeling grateful can make people feel better about themselves and be more optimistic as well as make them enjoy better health. Another benefit with gratitude is that we get better self control, discipline and focus. Research has shown that sharing and feeling gratitude can improve our physical and mental health.
Why does it matter?
So why is gratitude so important to us all? We can be thankful to different things in life; other people flowers you pretty much everything positive that goes on in our lives. This despite hardships that we may go through… We can use gratitude to create new social relations and connect with people or to strengthen current relationships that we already have. Acts of gratitude can be used also to apologize, make amends and help solve other problems that we are going though.
Why it is so powerful
Gratitude is a selfless act. Its acts are done with no restrictions or demands. This to show to people that we are appreciating them. Gratitude can also be contagious, in a positive way. Those that you show gratitude towards may in the future return the favor.
A good idea can be to start writing a daily gratitude journal. Write down each day what you appreciate and feel grateful about that particular day. You can also sit down each day with a friend and relative and talk about what you are thankful for right then and there. This can be a good training on feeling grateful.
So there are different benefits with sharing gratefulness. You can improve your state of mind, getting a better self image as well as feeling more relaxed and enjoy better health among other things. So with this in mind, will you start to practice some of the advice that I have shared here? Or are you already into sharing and feeling gratitude? Feel free to leave your comments below.
Do I need a website for my online business or can I do without a website?
My quick response to that is yes you really need a website as a business owner. I will now share some points to why you need a business website…
Are you being taken seriously?
People needs to be able to find you online and yes they can find you when you have a blog, but you need a website as well. You need a website for the sake of branding and also so that can people can find out more about the services and products you provide. Your website will increase your potential to build up your income. By having a website people can learn more about you and what you are about. To be taken seriously you need a website but not just any website, a website that so to say does its work. A website that converts visitors into leads and then into paying clients…
When you have your own website you can sell your own products through your site, and this can turn into a residual income for you. To step up your earnings you can also create multiple sites and also within separate niches. With the right platform this can be done quite easily. There are different types of websites. A regular one where you present yourself and your services but then there are E commerce sites and membership sites. So there are different types of sites that you can make money with
Search engine OPTIMIZATION
It is important that your site is search engine optimized so it ranks well in the search results. This makes sure that your site can receive a lot of traffic, a lot of visitors. Because you need as much so called eye balls on your content as possible.
When you have made some sales you could ask your buyers if they would be willing to make testimonials for you. Testimonials will help you make more sales for your business. They can convince visitors to your site that your services provides results, and is worth investing in and this way build up your prospects trust in you…
A way of contact
It is important that your visitors /prospects has a easy way of contacting you and another feature you should have on your business website is a chat function. This so that you or your staff can quickly answer any questions that your visitors might have.
There is a high level of competitions among businesses, so if you have a great website set up and some of your competitors have not, well that gives you a strong advantage and a head start.
A website for your business can make a huge difference for your income over the long term. To not have a website set up for your business is pretty much to leave money on the table.
Yes there are ways that you actually can make money for free with your cellphone. In the past I have tried out several apps that claimed that you could win big amounts by using them and play the games within that app. But they never paid out, basically they where fake,and they probably just wanted for the players to see different kind of commemrcials and hopefully some of then would click on the ads and spend money.
Well enough of that now.I have come across a app that I really trust and believe in and this is something you can turn into your main business if you want to. I did this review about this app called Tapestri recently, and you can watch it below…
Free or upgraded?
This is an app that you just download and let it work in the background on your cell phone,while you do what you regularly are doing on your phone. You can join for free and stay as a free member if you want to , and earn up to 25 dollars per month. But then there is a way to make more money ,much more money and that is to upgrade for 10 dollars to become a paid affiliate. This deal with paying just 10 dollars for a whole year is time limited. Ina few months this fee will turning into a monthly fee of 10 dollars. To learn more about Tapestri and the compensation plan watch the video below..
The data you already are sharing for free with companies and others, now you get paid for as a member of Tapestri. But your data is totally safe. They will never reveal your personal information,such as your name or where you are living and so on. But those who buys the data want to get in on different statistics, they might be interested in where people spend a lot of time. how many people that are using the Tapestri app within a certain n area and so on. When the app launches, any day now, you will even be able to shut off the sharing of data from your phone, if you for any reasons wants to do so. Tapestri is very careful with your privacy. Tapestri works now int the USA but will shortly go global. It will be available all over the world before this year ends, the only country that will now take part is right now China. And if you choose to upgrade you can right now start to earn some money no matter what country in the world you are living in.
So with this free app you have two options. If you want up make up to 25 dollar a month without inviting any new members , then that is totally fine. But if you want to make the bigger money then I strongly would recommend you to upgrade right now.
Your choice of the products you will promote is very very important. Your choices regarding this can either break or make you and your business. If will now get into different aspects of choosing the right product to promote, and how to find the right product to promote as well….
For the sake of your reputation
You have to be careful when choosing a product to promote, but it is not just the product it also has to do with the company behind the product. You should research the specific company to see what their reputation is. Do they deliver the products on time? Do they have a good support team and support system? Do their products so to say live up to their promises? Do their products satisfied the customers wants and needs? You need to do a good research about the company because you do not want to put your reputation in jeopardy. A reputation that you probably have spent plenty of time building up.
Recurring or not?
To make the most out of your marketing I recommend that you choose a product to promote that will generate recurring income for you, for instance a product with a monthly subscription. Because we really need t and want that recurring income. This to build your income faster and so that you will reach your financial goals faster.
Low ticket or high ticket?
What is the best product to promote then? A low ticket product or a high ticket product? My clear answer to that is; a high ticket product. Why? Because you will make more money per sale, and you will reach the financial goals that you have set up faster then if you are promoting a low ticket product. Somew people may think that is so difficult to sella high ticket product, well that is not really t rue. Not when you get the right knowledge on how to sell high ticket products. When you share with people how the product will solve a need they have or a want, then they will buy no matter what the price tag is. but you have to be patient, do not count on making a high ticket sale fast.
The need of a sales funnel
To make it easier for you to make those high ticket sales you should have a sales funnel set up. A sales funnel where the follow up emails will do most of the job for you to close these sales. If you do not have a sales funnel then it will take unnecessary hard work from you and it your income building will go much slower. So you must have a sales funnel, and a good one too.
So the choice of what product you will promote is incredibly important. Both for the sake of ethics but also that the product should have recurring commissions paid to you And I also recommend that you promote high ticket products.
We all that works with a online business or promoting products of course wants and needs more customers. How do we make that happen? If you continue to read I will share some advice regarding that.
The two different ways
There are two different options for you when you want to attract more costumers and make more sales. The two options involved paid or free traffic, paid of free advertising… The free traffic method that I recommend is organic traffic. This is a method that takes more effort and so called elbow grease. But it truly works but you need to be consistent with it and plan for the longer term. Do not quit just because this method may take longer time then paid ads, because if you have a limited budget then I recommend that you stick with organic traffic for a while. With organic marketing you share value in your content on social media consistently and by doing so you attract people towards you as a marketer. You should share inspirational posts, lifestyle posts, trivia posts and results posts. By result posts I am getting at that you should post proof of your results in your business to attract people to it.
The paid ads
Paid ads like Facebook ads can be a really powerful resource and help you build up your income and business fast. When you first getting involved with Facebook ads it can feel a bit over whelming perhaps. But once you have the skills to set up a good campaign then Facebook ads can be a really golden goose so to speak. The paid ads will run 24/7 , even when you are sleeping. When you have made some profit from your organic marketing you can invest that money or most of it, into paid advertising. I am not saying that you should stop using free organic traffic. You can combine the free and paid traffic to build your business and income faster. I am sharing a few tips about Facebook ads in the video above by the way… When you have money to spend on paid advertising do not hesitate to use it on ads, because if you do not then you are missing out big time. You will have to work much harder then to reach your financial goals.
You should also have a system, a sales funnel to make your income building easier and more effective for you. Without some kind of sales funnel you have to work so much harder, and there is no need to really. You then just drive all traffic to your funnel and let the sales funnel more or less take care of the rest for you, closing the sales and so on. If you do not know how to set up a good sales funnel then consider to buy this service to get help creating a good funnel. Because you really need to have some kind of system and sales funnel.

Any business owner of course needs new and more clients for their business. otherwise that business will soon have to be shut down. There are different ways to get new clients and I will share with you my best advice regarding this now.
Discounts and re connect
One method that you can use to get new clients is by offering discounts on your services that you offer. You can also connect with previous costumers to see if they would be interest in your services again, you could offer a discount for them then as well. You can find clients through your friends or on business networks for instance. One more way to get new clients is to re connect with clients that you have lost. Offer them a temting deal and also ask for the reason why they no longer are using your services. Because it is always good with feedback.
Join inline job boards and connect with people there to see if someone is willing to co work with you. Maybe you offer online marketing training for a fee , and you might find people on these boards that are interested to start making money from home. Maybe they also could turn into affiliates for your products and so on.
Start to blog to reach more people and potential prospects. Build up an audience and build up your personal brand this way as well. A blog is a great marketing tool that will work for you 24/7.
Offline or online?
Many small business owners are using off line marketing srtategies, and those may work to a degree. But to get any major results from their promotions I would recommend that you as a business owner start with online promotions as well. And the type of advertising platform I would recommend is, Youtube Google Facebook and Instagram. If you do not have the proper skills to use this kind of advertising then you can always pay someone to do this work for you by outsourcing. Because you need to be willing to spend money to build your business. Because it really takes money to make more money. At least invest some amount of money into paid advertising, then when you have made some sales then reinvest that profit into more paid ads.
Share advice with people regarding what you have knowledge about. You can share that knowledge for instance ad answers.com or Quora. This can attract people to you as an expert in your niche. You can leave a link to your blog on these platforms for instance.
Share tips in videos on different video platforms. Share a lot of value in these videos and offer a free eBook or video training t about your knowledge as a lead magnet.This way you will build your list and will get access to more prospects.
I hope you will take action on the advice I have shared here and I wish you all success.
Do you have a business website? Well you should have one , because if people can’find you online then you more or less does not exist.It is a lot of competition among marketers so you really need to have a good website so that you can stand out from your competition. You must have a goof online presence for the sake of branding but also so that you can make more sales for your business.
So let us get into what makes a good business website
Ton begin with the site needs to be easy to navigate on… But it also has to do with the content on your website and you need to have great content on your site. The website should be set up in that way that you easily can build your list with it as well as making you recurring sales. You should update your website often by adding new quality content on it.
Lack of know how
A lot of business owner do have their website set up but many of them do not have the knowledge yet how to set up a successful business website unfortunately. So in this situation they might have to hire someone to do that job for them. If that means that they will make more sales with what ever they are promoting, then that is really worth that extra expense.
one important part to why your new website will be really successful is if you have great customer service on your site, so that you or your staff can answer any questions that your prospects might have. By doing this you could have a customer chat service on your website. This way your sites visitors can ge ta fast reply from your support staff. You should try to put yourself in your customers shoes and see their point of view. So instead of being pitchy, simply answer your customers or potential customers at easy by answering their questions. Nobody likes when sales people are too pitchy and just focusing on the sale.
You need to be found
Even if your website looks great and so on, that does not matter if people can not find your site. So that is why search engine optimization is so important. You need to optimize your site to get more traffic to it. You need to do keyword research and pout your chosen keyword inside your websites content. But do not use your keyword too much in your content because you need to make your content to be easy to read. You will rank your website better if you have a blog attached to it because search engines love fresh content.
