Hot List Building Tips

youzign_EP_mashup-2

Here are some hot list-building tips for you to grow your list and your business.

1. Offer an outstanding gift or bonus for subscriptions. Not too long ago, any kind of a free gift or bonus was more than enough to get subscribers. In fact, in many cases, no “bribe” was needed at all! But, as more and more marketers began to send emails and ezines, and as spam increased, prospects began to be more discerning about whom they gave their email address to.

To really be successful in your list-building efforts, you must offer an irresistible deal for subscribers. Sometimes, if people are interested enough in your topic, they will sign up for your ezine or course. But most of the time you must prove to subscribers that you are serious about creating a relationship with them. This means you must provide them with solid content at the beginning, not advertisements. In some cases, this may mean you must offer a free course AND a free report (or some other combination). But do whatever it takes to get that subscriber on your list.

2. Add more opt-in boxes in your sales letter or home page. The best case scenario would be to have your home page be dedicated to your opt-in list as a lead-capture page. But if you won’t, or can’t, do that, put your opt-in subscription box on your page as many times as you can. Ideally, you want it at the top, in the middle, and at the bottom. As your prospect reads your sales page, he or she may become more interested in your topic. Thus, the more times he or she sees your opt-in box, the greater the chance they will leave their email for you to communicate with them.

3. Build your list virally. Write a free report on a useful topic (making sure to put your website in the report), visit the forums, and offer to give your report to anyone who wants it. Marketers will take you up on your offer because good marketers are always looking for good content to share with their lists; they don’t usually care where it comes from. When a marketer gives your report to their list, your website link will be viewed by many who read the report, and visited by many.

If you follow these tips, your list will grow and will become like gold for you.

How to Make Money in a Small Niche With a Simple Business Model

ecomm

When it comes to earning money online as a marketer, most people go wrong in exactly the same place. That crucial error? Their ambition. Unfortunately, too much ambition is very commonly the downfall of many online businesses and marketers which essentially causes them to bite off more than they can chew and then give up too easily.

Instead of aiming to become rich or change the world, it makes much more sense to start off small. Aim to accomplish something small first and then build on each success to eventually reach the top.

So what might this look like?

The Small Niche Business Model

SmartPassiveIncome.com is a blog owned by internet marketer Pat Flynn which shares his methods for earning money. One of his most successful recent ventures was a website aimed at food trucks. This is a very small niche that made it easy for him to find routes to market (ways to communicate with the target demographic).

Compare this with creating a website in the ‘fitness’ niche and you can imagine how much easier it is to get noticed and to reach the right audience. From here, Pat began making money from selling an eBook aimed at those food trucks that would help them make more money and apply smart business skills.

THIS is the exact same business model that first time internet marketers should be using. You might decide to choose a different niche (sticking with a career is often a good choice though) and you may decide you’d rather sell an affiliate item. The general model though is almost flawless for the inexperienced marketer.

Why This Works

So what’s so good about this business model?

For starters, choosing a small niche to operate in means that you’ll be able to much more easily get noticed. If you choose to go the PPC route for instance, you’ll pay far less for advertising in this niche as compared with the amount you’d pay for a bodybuilding or dating related keyword.

At the same time, this helps you to come up with a very clear value proposition and offering. Ideally, your product should set out to solve a very specific problem for a very specific group of people. This will make it much easier to market that product, to promote it and to encourage people to consider buying.

My #1 Tip for Online Marketing Beginners

image8

Whether you’re a small business owner trying to create or enhance your online presence, or a newbie to the online marketing arena, the biggest thing is to just get started.

When I first started in offline marketing, the concept was brand new. Thanks to evolving technology and new and unique ways to market to our customers, whoever they may be. Most small businesses didn’t even realize they needed this type of service yet. And even when they did, things were constantly changing. Google changes, text message marketing, QR codes and more new types of custom advertising.

As an offline marketing business consultant, naturally I needed to learn and keep up with them. There were quickly new tools becoming available. There was also education becoming available. The reason for that is because it was such a much needed service. So the firsts to become successful at it realized they could benefit even more, by showing other people how to become financially independent, and provide this much needed service at the same time! It’s all good! :)

The same to be said of the online marketing arena. Affiliate marketers, store owners, product developers, Kindle authors, and anyone else wanting to try and better their future, all soon realized that they had to learn everything they could because of all the quick changes.

Now here’s my simple point. While continuing my education, and acquiring new tools, I would study some of the other students. The questions they asked, the things they would say, and it always came down to one thing. Fear. Fear of rejection, fear of getting started, fear of failure. I’m not here to talk about fear. That’s a different post! I’m here to take an ounce of that fear away. For the newbies!

The first rule of thumb when starting out online is your domain name. I always recommend getting your own. Don’t let an “all in one online suite” of anything, have your domain name. Offline marketers, don’t let those big marketing firms who tout awesome SEO skills, have your domain name.

I know the domain name is what keeps beginners from getting started. Especially if you’re on a limited budget you really want to get it right. So maybe you just have to keep doing your niche research right?

Well sure, but quit using that as an excuse. Here’s my tip: Go now, and get yourself a (dot)info. GoDaddy sells (dot) infos for 3.99! Get that thing going. Get your hosting, transfer the domain, install a wordpress blog and just start doing! Play. Have fun. Get inspired.

You’re going to get experience, you’re going to get ideas, and you’re going to be on your way! And then when you’ve found the perfect domain name for your project, product or service, you’ll get that baby up in no time. You’ll have gotten the kinks, the little mistakes, and the (possible) big mistakes out of the way.

Best of all you’ll feel your confidence level on the rise. And I personally recommend that you proceed with confidence! (In everything that you do!) Go do it. Now!

What if I told you, that everything you’ve heard about making money on the internet was a lie?

money

Bold, right? Well I won’t tell you that everything you’ve heard or read about making money on the internet is a lie. Just because I don’t know what you’ve read or heard.

But I can tell you this. That the majority of it is bullcrap! If you think you’ll be able to fire your boss with Affiliate Marketing or TeeSpring, you may be waiting…and waiting, for a while!

“But Ali you promote these kinds of things”

Yes I do! And I do make money with them and you can too! If you are armed with the knowledge and tools to help you get there as quickly as possible.

But please keep in mind that all those gurus with pictures in front of mansions, standing next to their Lamborghinis are just “stuff” on the internet. If you’re going to buy into this notion that a few small, inexpensive moves are going to enable you to set and forget, and sit back and reap a gold mine…. well have you seen the Brooklyn bridge? I’m selling it cheap! Interested?

The truth is there’s a lot of other things that factor in here. You need to have a real passion. You need to have focus and discipline. You need to have a PLAN. If you want to make money selling T shirts then you’d better be pretty darn passionate about T shirts and have an eye for graphic design! (Then the tools to market successfully).

You also must know where you’re going and WHY! In fact if you’re listening to any of the real experts, the people I trust, they’ll tell you that your mindset is the first place to start. You might not believe that but I’m telling you it’s the truth. And it’s harder than you think! The next thing they’ll tell you is you need to start from the end! You must figure out your why!

Since the WHY is a very huge factor, and there’s so much more to do after that, like figure out where you want to go next, I’m offering you a golden nugget!

Sifting between the who’s who and what’s what out there, actually takes a whole lot of time! And yes, money!

The 10-Day Negative Thought Fast

 

Would you like a simple way to really change your life? Instead of merely getting by, you’ll find that your life can truly be exceptional when you focus on positive solutions rather than the constraints of your challenges.

This 10-Day Negative Thought Fast, originated by Emmett Fox, one of the most popular self-help authors and speakers of the early 20th century, is an adventure you’ll reap many benefits from.

Here are the rules:

1. If you break any of the other rules, you must start the 10 days over from the beginning. To get the full effect, you must complete 10 consecutive days. Giving up negative thoughts is a little like giving up a drug; you’ve got to stop using them completely, otherwise you haven’t truly quit.

2. You cannot focus on a negative thought or remain in a negative emotional state for more than five minutes. Ideally, the time should be much shorter. Five minutes should be plenty of time to recognize what’s going on and put a stop to it. Remember, even one instance of lingering for more than five minutes means starting over.

3. You must focus on solutions. When the negative thoughts start, the idea is to immediately start contemplating possible solutions. Spend your time solving your challenges instead of focusing on them.

* If you’re like most people, you’ve probably had the same challenges for quite a while without resolution. It’s time to try something else instead of dwelling on what’s wrong.

This sounds deceptively easy, but you may be surprised how difficult it is to give up negativity. We tend to think that worrying helps in some way. But you’ve probably been worrying about a lot of things for a long time and they haven’t improved.

When you’re faced with a negative thought (and there will be many!), the best response is to think to yourself, “How can I solve or improve this challenge?” The point is to immediately begin focusing on solutions. When you ask a good question, you’ll receive good answers.

Over the 10 days, you’ll begin to form a habit of immediately recognizing a negative mental state and then focusing on solutions for what you feel negatively about. If you continue the process after the 10 days are completed, you’ll develop a permanent habit that will only require a minimal amount of maintenance.

You might need several attempts to complete the full 10 days. It’s common to have numerous slips on day one and then a few others later in the process. Refrain from beating yourself up over it. Remember, you’re focusing on solutions.

Taking Your Focus Away From A Negative Thought

One way to help keep the negative thoughts at bay is to ask you positive questions like the following:

* What’s great about today?
* What do I like the most about this?
* What am I most proud of?
* What am I most looking forward to?

If you’re filling your mind with positive thoughts, there’s no room for the negative stuff. And since we can only consciously think about one thing at a time, making the most out of your thoughts makes sense.

Try this 10-day adventure and see if it doesn’t change your life. You’ll be so amazed at the results that you’ll never want to go back to the old way of dwelling on the challenges in your life. So start this process today and change your life for the better.

Breaking Through The Strongest Resistance

The more determined you are to make changes in the way you think, the more prepared you  can be when it comes to accepting change and letting go of your past. Once you have chosen to believe the affirmations you have created, you can force your subconscious into two opposite reactions – reappraisal or avoidance.

The bigger the issue you face, the bigger the gap between inner truth and positive  affirmations will be. This may cause you to experience resistance, a process wherein the subconscious mind chooses to stick to perceived inner truths and prevent you from examining the issue at hand. This strong reaction is usually marked by an overwhelming negative feeling that you experience as you try stating positive affirmations.

On the other hand, reappraisal happens when you experience a sense of well being and joy. This forces your mind to respond according to its set of beliefs in an instinctive manner. This thrilling sensation is a good indication that the affirmations you made are finally working. By constantly repeating affirmations with passion and conviction, you can start chipping away even the strongest resistance you may experience. You can even use additional techniques that can magnify the effectiveness of your affirmations.

Once you finally break the resistance, your subconscious will automatically re-examine its core beliefs and thought patterns. When your dysfunctional beliefs are identified and replaced by a new set of inner truths, things will change quickly before your eyes. Depending on how deep these beliefs lay in your consciousness, every other thought you learned based on your original inner truth will slowly become unfounded. Your subconscious mind re-examines all of them and walks you through a period of deep introspection. However, you may need professional support if you are currently experiencing a strong resistance.

Positive affirmations actually work by reprogramming your thought patterns, changing the way you feel about certain circumstances, and replacing dysfunctional beliefs with a new set of inner truths. These effects will eventually lead to a positive change that comes naturally and easily. The strong effects of your affirmations will start reflecting in your external life as you experience seismic changes that will improve many aspects of your life. Remember, affirmations are more than just positive statements. They can be used to create or destroy so they can either bring you failure or success.

Motivation: How To Fire Up Your Inner Drive

It happens to all of us. One day, we just wake up lacking the energy to do anything. Not wanting to go out of bed, not wanting to stay in it either. That’s normal. That’s the stuff of life, so to speak. What is not normal though is getting entangled with lack of energy, lack of drive, lack of motivation. What is not normal is to continuously talk yourself into the act of not doing anything. But what do you do when all the drive inside of you are purged out? Maybe you can begin with the following recommendations.

Think of the worst-case scenario – We have all been told that envisioning success is a good motivator. Now, why not do the exact opposite? Why not envision a future that is bleak, hopeless and stripped off all happiness and success. Why not envision yourself living eternally in a rut where sense of accomplishment and a tiny hope are inexistent?

Scary, right? Few people realize that they already own a one-way ticket towards this very vision. Now what you want to do is to get off your butt and work your way out of the train wreck you are heading to. Turn your life around and work for a goal. Now, that is getting motivated.

Set a date for change and commit to it – Change must come to everyone of us. Sometimes it is forced upon us, sometimes we choose when it will happen. It is always much more preferable to have control over the change that can take us over. If the change you are seeking requires a specific date on the calendar, then set it. Make a huge, red circle around the date and stick with it. Let this serve as a motivator to start doing the things you should have done weeks, months or years ago. Let this chosen date serve as the new beginning of your life.

Break the routine – When you’re doing the same thing every day, sooner or later, the energy that you once had will drain out. No matter how passionate you were with your work, project, or goal when you were just beginning, you will suffer from lack of motivation once your body senses that it is doing the same thing day in, day out.

Don’t be afraid to break the routine once in a while. Quit work for a full day. Stop doing your routine for a week. Take a month-long vacation. Take on a new hobby for a year. These can help energize you and rekindle your drive. And while you’re taking your break from your routine, don’t lose the faith that you will have the same kind of energy you once had by the time you get back to work.

Don’t lose sight of your goals – It is easy to lose your focus when there is too much distraction around. Whether it’s the kids, clutter at your work area, Twitter or Facebook, you will find that these simple things remind you of other things that can drive your concentration away from the task at hand. To prevent yourself from killing your own motivation, always try to stick with your goals and shut out whatever it is that it trying to reduce it.

Top 10 Food and Nutrition Affirmations

When you have “convenience” food bombarding you from every direction, it can be difficult to choose options that give your body the nourishment it needs.

However, if you have daily reminders and effective tools at your disposal, you just may find that eating the right foods and feeding your body the best fuels becomes a lot easier.

Of course, there will always be temptation, but when you equip yourself with anti-temptation tools, you will be able to quickly re-focus your mind on your greater goal of getting healthy!

Using Affirmations to Make the Healthy Food and Nutrition Choices

When everyone around you at the office is indulging in burgers, fries, and sugary drinks, it’s awfully tempting to join in, isn’t it?

But what if you could stop that temptation in its tracks and actually choose to make a healthy choice? You don’t need me to tell you that fatty and sugary choices are not the kinds of food that your body needs – you need to tell yourself!

It can be hard in moments of temptation to make the right choice, but with the help of positive affirmations, you can re-train your brain to replace the desire for junk food with healthy choices.

Affirmations can help you stick to your diet, say no to temptation, and eat nourishing and satisfying foods. How? By replacing the negative spiral of thoughts in your mind with powerful, positive ones.

But first you have to believe that it is possible to gain control over your thirsts, desires, and cravings. The first step in making a lasting change in your life is to make the commitment to success. Are you committed? Do you believe that you can overcome your cravings?

Once you’ve set your commitment in stone, you’re ready to learn the top 10 affirmations to get you through moments of weakness.

Top 10 Food and Nutrition Affirmations

Before reading the list below, you should know that affirmations are most successful when you internalize the saying and repeat it frequently. Whether you’re having a good or bad day, you need to be constantly repeating these positive statements in your mind. Temptation will strike when you least expect it, so it’s better to be prepared!

1. I can neutralize bad habits with good food, exercise, and healthy living.
2. I am proud to reach out to my support network instead of leaning on food for comfort.
3. I am losing weight for me because I love me.
4. I set aside time just for me.
5. My good health and productivity are the rewards for the nourishing foods I eat.
6. Weight gain happens over time, so my weight loss equally requires time, patience, and lifestyle changes.
7. I use self-care, not self-control.
8. The more I take care of myself, the better I feel.
9. I am firmly committed to staying active and healthy.
10. I deserve a healthy body and mind.

When you look at these food and nutrition affirmations, they may seem like ideals – behaviors and thoughts that you only wish you could have – but each time you reaffirm them by saying them aloud, you’re slowly changing your mindset. Over time, these ideals will become a reality through your thoughts and actions.

But remember, you must first believe you can change. Once you make the commitment to your success, you will change your attitudes about food and you’ll be thankful you did!
