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.
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.
Sms phone leads is a sms marketing system that I have been using for quite a while, to help me generate leads as well as sign ups to my business. Recently some improvements have been made to Sms phone leads and I reveal everything about those updates now. To begin with, sms marketing can be really powerful and valuable for any online marketer, because you can run your business from your cellphone. Besides, most people all around the world owns an cellphone, so think about what it would mean for you and your business, if you could reach a big part of all these people. More and more people are starting to use sms marketing to help them build their income and businesses.
The home of the 2 step funnel
So let us get into what Sms phone leads have to offer… To begin with it will only cost you a one time expense of 37 dollars to get life time access to this system. When you sign up to sms phone leads you will receive a phone number that is connected to he system, but not to your personal cellphone. But you can however call your leads up personally if you want to. Otherwise the system will do all the work for you. Automated audio and text messages will be sent out to your leads as soon as they call the phone number that is connected to your automated sms funnel. Besides all the tolls I will explain to you shortly you have also the option to collect instant 100% commissions when promoting this system.
So what is new?
Here follows the new features that been added to Sms phone leads;
The possibility to add your auto responder to the system although the system already builds your list.
You can have the staff at Sms phone leads to promote your affiliate link at; Google, Udemi and Youtube
You have the option to purchase the micro book that teaches you how to make $100-$500 per day. You can also buy the right to puit in your signature and any link in this book.
2 step funnel where you can direct your leads to the sales pages of two of your business opportunities.
You have the option to invest in 5 done for you high converting emails.
You have the option also to invest in a training called partnership secrets.
You will also of course have access to the tools and resources that was already in place before the update of Sms phone leads. Such as the sms blaster where you can send a lot of sms messages to a larger group of people. And the ringless software that send sms messages to your leads without their cell phone making any sound. You can also buy more credits that is used for the messaging with your leads, as well as more phone numbers and last but not least; you can buy leads from inside this system.
So yes, I feel like there is a lot of value in this system and I really recommend it.
Most of us that has a Facebook account I believe have received some unwanted spammy message at some point in time. Yes you can generate leads for free and make sales as well. but being spammy and coming across as a desperate spammer is not a very good or effective way to go about it. Because people will in most cases just get angry at you. Unfortunately many people are sending spammy messages in hope of making a fast sale, but this approach just doesn’t work. They are probably spamming people because they do not know how to sponsor or do proper prospecting. I also did this Facebook live today involving this topic about Facebook messaging and some tips regarding this how to prospect more effectively on Facebook…
The first reaction
After seeing a spammy message in your inbox the first reaction from you might be irritation as well as anger and that you want to block that person that have sent that spam message. But I would not block them at once, but that is if course totally up to you. But I would give them another chance to see if they could change their approach toFacebook messaging. You could tell them that there is a better way to do their prospecting. And if you have those skills on effective prospecting you can share some free tips with them on a better and more ethical strategy to do their Facebook messaging.
If they do not listen
If they do not listen to your advice or if they keep on pitching or even acting rude, then you might as well block them. But see if they are willing to find out a better way of prospecting and if they are willing to learn from you. Because if you have a training that covers how to connect with people and how to build trust with them so that they then can generate leads and sales for their business, then you can offer to give it away for free to them. But do not just share the link to the training, get them into your sales funnel first. This way you will be building your buyers list, and at the same time giving away a free valuable training to help someone getting more results in their business. And then you can promote multiple offers to them while they are subscribed to your list. Because you should always be building your list, it is a great asset to have.
There are Two wins
So there are two wins with using this strategy. Not all people will react in a positive way when you advice them on what works, some may even be angry and/ or rude. But some people might, you never know. Some people are coach able and some people are not, it is just the way it is. Thank you for reading this blog post. Feel free to leave your comments and feedback below.
is a great resource, a free resource to use in your marketing efforts. So are you using Facebook live to generate free leads and sign ups for your business? If you are not using Facebook Live yet in your marketing then I strongly advice you to considering starting with it. Because the difference between those marketers that uses Facebook live and does marketers who does not, is that the ones that uses these lives generates more leads and sales into their businesses. But you need to be consistent with it.
Mindset and comfort zones
If you do not feel comfortable showing yourself on video then do your best to come over that fear. Because the more you will do something you are nervous about doing, the more uncomfortable you will become. And you can’t let fear stop you from having success. Even the very successful marketers that are recording videos and streaming Facebook lives have been nervous when they first got started doing their lives and videos. So it is the same thing for everyone. The main thing is that you really get started and keep doing your Facebook lives.
You simply nust add a good attention grabbing head line to your lives. Otherwise not many people will pay attention to it and watch it.You have to have positive energy and be excited about what you are going to share in your facebook live streaming. Otherwise you will not have much success with your live streaming. Nobody is interested in watching a live where you look sad or not in the mood for instance.So look happy and bring on the excitement in your facebook lives. Do not be discouraged if you do not get that many views and comments and likes at the start. No one does, so be consistent and give it time . Over time I am sure you will get more views and engagement on your Facebook lives.
Nothing to share?
If you think that you have nothing of value to share with people then you are wrong. I believe that you know a lot of things about marketing for instance that other people do not. You can talk about your story with your successes and struggles and so on. You can talk about mindset or about something totally outside marketing. This so that you can more eye balls and exposure to your Facebook profile as well as your content. And you want a lot of so called eye balls on your content.
The best time
So what time is the best time to do your Facebook lives? Well you can test that out for yourself. Test it by doing lives at different times during the day. Then you can see what time you get the most views and comments and so on. So plan your Facebook lives according to those results, do not just send broadcasts randomly.
So yes Fb live streaming is really something you should use in your marketing, especially if you have a limited budget, because this is a free resource.
Or more to the point; how to get more agency clients by using certain free methods, that is what I am going to share in todays blog post. Does it sound difficult and expensive to start a agency and getting clients? Well it does not have to be… There are free ways of generating paying clients, yes no out of pocket expense for you.
How to start
Maybe you are wondering what services you should provide in your agency business and if you have enough knowledge to start a agency? I am sure you have an interest that you have pretty much knowledge about that you can use to start up your own digital agency. Try also to think outside the box… Maybe you are good at blogging or website design or doing voice overs. There are so many things you can offer as a paid service. So think about what you are good at and do not think less of yourself when it comes to this. Believe in yourself and your ability.
Social sites such as Facebook is very powerful and useful when it comes to connecting with people to get paying agency clients. Here follows some steps you can follow regarding this… if you do not have a Facebook account then create one because it is free to do so. Connect with and add at least 20 new contacts every day. Make sure not to move to fast with presenting your offer. You should have been chatting with your prospects at least for one week before sharing any information about the services you have to offer. Create a relationship with people that you connect with and get to know them a bit. Focus more on their situation and story then your own. Do not focus so much on making the sales, focus on how you can help them. Yes I know we are here to make money, but do not just focus on the money. Over time you may realize what their so called pain is, and then you can present your services to them as a sort of solution for them to get out of that pain. To lose that pain.
Another way to connect with more people and to get more paying clients is to join Facebook groups. Join groups that has to do with the services you offer. It can be groups where people want to learn proper marketing, but this is only a example… Then add members of the groups, but do not add all of them. Also, do not spam them or start to pitch them. Instead use the tactic that I just describe to you about creating relationships with them. This strategy can of course be used on other social platforms as well, such as Linkedin for instance.

So now let us get into my Facebook tips for beginners.
Now I want to give you some advice if you are new to marketing or doing Facebook lives. It can be quite common that people are a bit nervous when first starting out making videos or Facebook lives. people may be afraid of being rejected or being made fun of. But you need to see pass that and work on your mindset and see things in another perspective. When it comes down to it you must try to ignore any possible silly remarks, because those negative people do not pay your bills, and you are here to make a living as a marketer. Not all people out there are negative and bad, there are a lot of great people that are willing to listen and learn. Willing to listen to you… And never let any negative people stop you from reaching your goals and what you want to achieve.
The first thing I want to tell you about doing Facebook live is that you need to have your cellphone vertical and make sure you holding your phone in the right position before starting your live stream. Do your best to be steady on your hand and it is even better if you invest in a phone holder so that you do not have to hold it in your hand, then you can talk freely having it stand for instant on a table. These holders are pretty inexpensive.
The subject line
Never do a Facebook live without a head line. Because when people see your live they will not hear you until they activate the sound for your live, so therefor they do not know what you are talking about if you do not have a subject line. Write your subject line in a way that will awaken peoples curiousity. It can involve solving a so called pain they have. Such as lack of money or if they want to be able to have more freedom in their lives.
What’s in the background?
Make sure that there are not some clothes lying around in your background or that it in some other ways looks untidy and so on. Because you need to have a professional appearance in your Facebook lives. And do not sit in a sofa recording your live especially if its a bit bad lighting or such. It does not look professional to be recording form a sofa. Sit at a table or in front of your computer.
Give it time
Do not get discouraged if you do not get that many views on your lives. Nobody gets that many views when first starting off. But do not give up, be peristent and over time you will see an increase ion views to your Facebook lives. You could build upa big following this way, which mean more money in the bank for you.
I must say this to begin with, I have discovered some negative sides to the training inside this product. And that is that in some of the videos James speaks with a rather low voice so you need to listen carefully, or if you maximize the value on your computer. Besides that I have not found any other negative sides. The training is easy to follow and it has a lot of value in it. I bought this product earlier this evening and it is getting late here now, so I will catch up with you again tomorrow.
Infusion 2.0 Test-Day Two
So now I have gone through more of the training. The setup of the training is similar to other products members area. I am not saying that is a bad thing, it is just a observation. With the menu on the left side and the video tutorials to the right. The training is easy to follow because it is set up in a step by step manor. So far I am pleased with the training, it covers a lot of the important pieces on how to start making money with promoting high ticket offers. Okay now it is time to call it a day. See you soon.
Infusion 2.o Test- Day Three
Okay, so hond that it is a good product if yyou are interested in learning how to make high ticket sales. if you are interested access a already set up capture page and thank you page, if you want to learn more about paid traffic and free traffic.ere we go on the third day of my test. You get an already created funnel to drive traffic to by applying what they teach within Infusion 2.0. That is through Clickfunnels. Although Clickfunnels is a great software it is also not the cheapest ones out there.
However, you get access to a 14 day free trial. If you have troubles affording Clickfunnels then find a cheaper funnel building software and copy how their pages look inside Infusion 2.0. Now about using Clickfunnels, when you have created your account there using the product creators link inside Infusion, and downloaded the free funnel. (a good capture page and a thank you page), then realize that now you do not have the cheapest membership of Clickfunnels. If you want to just pay 97 dollar per month then make sure to change your level of membership. Otherwise you must pay $297.00 per month. Talking about saving money… If you have a limited budget and can’t afford paid traffic then they are sharing a training on how to generate free traffic as well. But know this, free traffic strategies takes longer time, but they can produce results regardless. But anyhow I am pleased with the product and the trainings, despite that they talk with a low voice in some of the videos.
Infusion 2.0 Test – Day Four
Now that I have gone through all the training and applied what they share inside Infusion 2.0, then I have the following to say… Yes James is talking with a low vocie in the videos so sometimes it can be hard to hear what he says, but you do hear but what he says, but anyway that is a negative piece of this product. Beyond that I think that this is a really good product. if you want to learn how to promote high ticket offers and how to drive both free and paid traffic, an what offers to promote then you might want to have a closer look at this product.
