Looking for newsletter subscribers? There are a ton of ways to get people to sign up for your weekly or monthly email marketing campaigns — and we’ve put together a list of some of the best. Start collecting email addresses today with these 29 list-building tactics.

  1. Include a link to your newsletter sign-up form in the main navigation bar of your website or blog. (Or better yet, include a signup form in the main navigation bar).
  2. Create a signup call to action button on your Facebook business page.
  3. Create enticing visuals encouraging people to sign up for your list, and post them on social media channels (especially Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn).
  4. Attend or exhibit at a trade show or networking event and bring a newsletter email signup clipboard or book. If you’re tech-savvy, bring an iPad or mobile device with you. Ask each person you talk with to sign up. Do the same for any business cards you receive.
  5. Include a link to your newsletter signup form in your personal email signature.
  6. Place a newsletter signup clipboard next to every register if you have a retail store. Have your employees mention the newsletter and emphasize the benefits (exclusive discounts, events, educational info, reminders, etc.)
  7. Join your local chamber of commerce, email the member list (if it’s opt-in) about your services, and include a link to sign up for your newsletter.
  8. Host your own event and request attendees to join your newsletter.
  9. Offer a birthday club, and give something special to those who sign up.
  10. Incentivize your employees. Give them financial rewards for adding new subscribers to the newsletter.
  11. Give something away like samples, a tour, a consultation, a free how-to guide, an infographic or a how-to video, and have people sign up for your newsletter to qualify.
  12. Get referrals. Ask your customers to encourage friends to sign up. In exchange, give them a discount.
  13. Use Pinterest! Here’s a step-by-step guide to building your email list with Pinterest.
  14. Make and upload videos to YouTube or Vimeo, then include a link at the end of every video directing people to your newsletter signup form.
  15. Post your signup form page on LinkedIn and sponsor it.
  16. Have a list of postal addresses without emails? Send a direct mail offer that can be redeemed when the recipient signs up for your newsletter.
  17. Include a link to the email signup form in your Twitter business profile description. Here’s how to edit your Twitter profile.
  18. Use a light box or pop-up overlay. When someone attempts to leave your site, the pop-up text will encourage them to sign up.
  19. Include a forward-to-a-friend link in all your emails.
  20. Use a hosted signup form landing page.
  21. Create a tab on your business Facebook page and include an email signup form.
  22. Offer “newsletter only” discounts and mention them on your signup form page and on social. Don’t use those offers anywhere but in your newsletter.
  23. Ask people over the phone. When people call your business, don’t hang up until you’ve asked if you can add them to your newsletter.
  24. Put a fishbowl on your counter, ask for business cards and permission to sign up for your newsletter, then do a weekly or monthly prize giveaway of your product and announce it in your next edition.
  25. Post a photo of an item or an offer to give away on Instagram. Then, include a link in your Instagram bio asking people to sign up to participate in the giveaway.
  26. Include a call to action, a link and a signup form at the end of every blog post you write.
  27. Add a link or sign up form in the footer and/or sidebar of your website.

Paid Traffic Game Has been Changed

Forget Everything

You thought you knew about the

Paid-Traffic Game!

If you’ve ever bought traffic online, you know that most traffic sucks. It doesn’t matter if it’s safelist traffic, Solo Ad traffic, or even a VERY expensive Pay Per Click ad.

You simply don’t know if you’ll make a profit, right?

The risk is on you most of the time, and even if it’s not, it’s unlikely you’ll ever make a profit because you simply don’t know if there’s demand for your offers.

Well, what if there was a way you could test-drive your offers, by using traffic that is systematically being Twice confirmed, and PROVEN to convert, over and over again?

Read on... and then press on banners or button below to get inside the system.

And what if, every time you spent money on driving that traffic, you could LITERALLY guarantee a highly profitable return EVERY TIME?

And what if, everytime you spent money on driving that traffic, you could LITERALLY guarantee a highly profitable return EVERYTIME?

That would be pretty incredible, right?

But, before we go any further...I need to acknowledge the fact that this sounds kinda crazy... and even a bit hypey, I know.

If you’re skeptical, I totally respect your caution - especially with so many false promises being made online these days.

But as you’ll see in the next few minutes, these seemingly preposterous ideas have been proven to be very real for myself, and a small group of marketers, as we’ve been quietly perfecting a system that has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars by testing it all out on affiliate offers and some of our own products too.

We wanted to make sure that what we created, wasn’t just another product. The goal was to provide our internet marketing community with...

Something in which everyone could find REAL sustainable value. And It would be able to change the whole traffic & conversion game, forever.

thousands of dollars by testing it all out on affiliate offers and some of our own products too.

Hi my name is, Tyler Anderson!

I’m the founder of this system. And as a long time member of the online marketing community... actually, since high school, I’ve been involved in several online & offline businesses.

But I’ll be honest, I’ve failed many times before I got focused and achieved success.

And I can also tell you, these successes did not come easy. It has taken more than 14 months, and over $100,000 to get all the necessary pieces together.

Sure, the market has been hungry for this kind of solution...

And me and my team could’ve easily compromised on low-quality programmers and developers, and churned out the next shiny object, with lots of smoke and mirrors, just to pacify the market, and make a lot of money.

Like so many others...

You must understand that’

This is NOT a joke, and it’s not a marketing game.

As soon as we have reached our member limit, we will shut the doors until we’re ready for the next batch - or maybe even forever.

If you’ve been struggling as an affiliate for some time now, or even if you sell your own products online, you definitely NEED THIS.

This is nothing like you’ve ever seen before. It’s going to change EVERYTHING for you very quickly.

Especially when it’s traffic that has been tested twice: once by our team, and once by our customers.

The perfect offer to making money by giving away free products.


“FREE! How To Get A Consistent Stream Of Cash-In-Hand Buyers For ANY Offer …Even If Nobody’s Ever Heard Of You” (by Dean Holland)

If you’d like to make 4 or even 5 figures income as an affiliate, promoting other people’s products for commissions…

…And you’d like to discover how to do so WITHOUT having to sell anything, this will be the most important letter you have ever read (see my offer at the end of the post)

But first…

I Need To Come Clean About Something…

Before we go any further, I need you to know something…

I didn’t invent this method

Sorry, I’m just not that smart…

I first saw it happen at a market in London by 2 guys who were selling, of all things - CHEESE…

I’ve since discovered it’s used by companies like Coca Cola and Nutella who’ve made BILLIONS, in part to this method

Now, don’t worry, I know you’re probably not selling cheese, cola or chocolate spread, and that’s fine…

18 months ago, I discovered a way to use it on the internet to get a consistent stream of buyers for just about ANY offer online, even if nobody’s heard of you

However, please know, this is NOT one of those ‘get rich quick for doing nothing’ websites that promises untold wealth for lazy folks

Here’s the deal…

This method is working incredibly well for me. Financially, it’s made me a millionaire – I’m not bragging, it’s fact. (Dean Holland)

It’s also working well for my army of affiliates, my group of high level mentoring clients and a network of other online millionaires who have discovered it

I believe it can help you too, but I’m not suggesting that it’s going to make you a millionaire like me.

I don’t know how much you’ll make, I don’t even know if you’ll do anything with it once I get it to you (although I sure hope you will?)

So, with that said… let me jump in and show you

Exactly What You’re Getting…

This is a strategy that can be deployed by anyone, even if you’ve yet to make your first sale online.

It’s powered by the fact that there’s only 3 ways to grow your business, the first of which is to “get more customers”

That is exactly what you’ll do with this… Get a consistent flow of customers every single day onto your email list, so you can sell them anything else you’d like

(it goes without saying that you shouldn’t exploit this strategy for evil… you need to sell them stuff that they want and need, of course)

The training itself is just 68 minutes, so it’s quick to consume. You’ll immediately discover how we make millions by giving away products for free so you can copy the strategy for yourself.

And even though this strategy crushes it for affiliate marketers…

It Also Works Amazingly Well For Digital Product Owners, Network Marketers, And eCommerce Store Owners

See, you can use this EXACT strategy to get buyers for just about ANY business

For example, I’ve recently generated $709,900.20 in sales of my own digital products by using this method

A client of mine just used this to start a brand-new eCommerce store, in a hyper competitive niche and got 4,863 customers by giving away something for free, which results in her making $51,043 so far

One of my mentors who also uses this method, just used it for a special campaign that resulted in over 50,000 copies of his book being ordered and well over $1,000,000 being generated in a 30 day period

AND, a client of mine just shared with me that this method allowed him to make over $31,000 in affiliate commissions by using the same method you’ll discover when you get this from me.

So, like I said, this is more than just for affiliate marketers.


PS: I've already ordered this information from Dean, to apply it to business I develop with AIOP team (All in one profits). Click HERE or image below to see one of the invitation pages

Specific way to build your customers list using viral method.

start a home business

Do you know the single most crippling mistake that almost every beginning online marketer makes?  (by internet entrepreneurs Nick and Debbie Anderson)

Trying to blaze their own trail...

There are dozens of proven ways to make an excellent living online... and yet so many
people insist on making it a lot harder than it needs to be...

Look, you don't get bonus points for creativity in marketing... you just get
extra headaches and it takes longer before you make money...

The pioneers are usually the ones with the arrows in their back...

Why not just relax and do it the easy way?

It used to be a long, grueling process to put together a money-making online system...

* First, you had to design and create a product that you hoped people would want
to buy..

* Then you had to write and design squeeze pages, sales pages, order pages, and thank
you pages - format them and upload them online...

* Next you had to write a series of email autoresponders to promote your product...

* Finally, after all this you still had to figure out how to get traffic to your
website...

Wouldn't it be nice to have a nice, complete turn-key system that would do all this for
you?

Now there is...

It's true that the first online marketers had to blaze a trail and do it the hard way...



But there's no reason for you to work that hard, when they've done most of the work for
you...

You want to get out of the rat race,right?

You've always dreamed of being your own boss, right?

Well now is the time you can finally make that dream a reality.

Don't delay it any longer. Find very specific way to get new buyers and build PayPal List.

Are you emailing when commuting to work?

Should commuting count as work?

Up to 60% of commuters on one British railway connected to onboard Wi-Fi after it was introduced, according to a new study. Commuters who were interviewed for the research said they were able to use their traveling time to “catch up” with work and prepare for their day. The researchers said that some commuters in Norwayare able to count their travel time as work, which can lead to a number of benefits.

  • Counting commuting time as work could reduce pressure on transportation systems by allowing more flexibility around working times.
  • The downside is that such an arrangement may lead to more surveillance of employees. Also, trains and other vehicles would need upgrades to create better working environments.

We are online 24*7. Now it’s more about work life integration than work life balance. Also with rising real estate costs in major metropolitan cities, more people are choosing to stay in the suburbs, making few hours travel time a reality of their daily lives.

I endorse this move for 3 reasons - (says Rajita Kulkarni, President at Sri Sri University)

1) Deep Work- Quiet time on trains ( in the western countries ) allows “Deep Work”- an undisturbed time to think & act. No interruptions by coworkers stopping by, no ringing phones, no unwanted meetings. Research can be done about how this productivity/ accuracy is different from that at actual workplace.

2) Load Balancing traffic/ crowds- This will help get rid of “Peak time” concepts in travel thereby reducing the extraordinary load on public services, road traffic & time taken for travel. It will also allow people to organise their work around personal needs like children’s schedules & other such demands.

3) Increase Happiness- Flexibility, freedom of choice & being recognised for every minute of work put in can be huge catalysts in increasing the sense of well being & happiness. It’s not where we work that should matter, but how well we work.

Times have changed. Now some employees can work from home, adopt a schedule with flexible hours, and execute work tasks while traveling to and from the office.

Over the last decade, greater access to Wi-Fi on trains and the widespread adoption of smartphones have led to an extension of the traditional working day for many.

Researchers said Thursday that if employees using their commute to work had this time recorded as part of their working day, it would likely "allow for more comfort and flexibility" and ease rush-hour bottlenecks.

Passengers use smartphones inside a subway train in Seoul, South Korea, in 2015.

In Norway, commuters have been seen to be able to include some travel time as part of their working day, the researchers made note of. This is not the case however in the U.K., so researchers at the University of the West of England (UWE) set out to examine the impact of free Wi-Fi on commuter trains.

They surveyed 5,000 rail passengers traveling on Chiltern Railways trains on two major London routes — from/to Birmingham and Aylesbury — over a 40-week period in 2016 and 2017.

Observing how popular the uptake of free Wi-Fi was, the researchers discovered that many passengers were willing to make use of the complimentary connectivity, increasingly as the amount of free Wi-Fi was extended. Others opted to use their own mobile data.

The UWE study, published Thursday, found that many of those surveyed used their commute to prepare for the day, or to catch up on work tasks, including emails.

Researchers also suggested calling for more available tables, seats and power sources, in addition to sufficient continuous connectivity. To enhance this, investment would be required from train operators and telecom businesses, the university added in an accompanying release.

Presenting the findings at the Royal Geographical Society's (with IBG) annual international conference, study co-author Dr Juliet Jain said in a statement, "If travel time were to count as work time, there would be many social and economic impacts, as well as implications for the rail industry. It may ease commuter pressure on peak hours and allow for more comfort and flexibility around working times. However, it may also demand more surveillance and accountability for productivity."

The Rule of 90 to 10 percent that Affects Your Whole Life

The 90/10 Rule.

The 90/10 Rule is one of the most helpful concepts for life and time management. According to this principle: 10 percent of your activities will account for 90 percent of your results. This can change the way you set goals forever! (this post is by Jeff Hunter)

90/10 Rule In Action

If you have a list of ten items to accomplish, only one of those items will turn out to be worth more than the other nine items put together.

If you have a list of ten items to accomplish, only one of those items will turn out to be worth more than the other nine items put together.

The sad fact is that most people procrastinate on the top 10 percent of items. However, these are the most valuable and important – the “vital few”.  Instead, they busy themselves with the least important 90 percent, the “trivial many,” which contribute very little to their success.

Delegate, Automate, or Stop Doing it

How To Apply The 90/10 Rule

Here’s what you should do in order to effectively apply the 90/10 rule to goal setting and to your overall productivity.

First, take a piece of paper and write down ten goals. Then ask yourself: If you could only accomplish one of the goals on that list today, which one goal would have the greatest positive impact on your life?

After completing this exercise, your choice will determine the most important goal. Achieving this goal will help you much more than any of the other goals on your list combined.  Ensure that you continue to work at the goal which you’ve chosen as the most valuable all the time.

This does NOT mean the other 90% of your work goes away, but you must make three choices for the other 90%:

A) Delegate it
B) Automate it
C) Stop doing it

Accomplish The Biggest Task First

Often, you may see people who appear to be busy all day long but seem to accomplish very little. This is almost always the case as they are busy working on tasks that are of low value. On the other hand, they are procrastinating on the one activity that could make a real difference to their companies and to their careers.

The most valuable task you can do each day is often the hardest and most complex. The payoff and rewards will make completing them truly worth it.

Before you begin work, always ask yourself, “Is this task in the top 10 percent of my activities or in the bottom 90 percent?”

The rule to adhere to here is: resist the temptation to clear up small things first!

Choosing to start your day working on low-value tasks, will cause you to soon develop the habit of always starting and working on low-value tasks.

 

Always Work Towards Your Main Goal

Always Work Towards Your Main Goal

Finally, let’s discuss this study that has just been done about the attitudes of rich people versus poor people in regard to goal setting. The study found that 85% of rich people have one big goal that they work on all the time.

Therefore, if you want to be wealthy, perhaps you should do what wealthy people do. Pick one big goal and work on it all the time. If you do, it will change your life.

Before we wrap up, I’d like to leave you with a thought to share with your friends and followers:

Your income right now is a result of your standards, it is not the industry, it is not the economy.” – Tony Robbins

Those are my strategies for applying the 90/10 Rule to goal setting.

My questions today are: “Have you used the 90/10 Rule for goal setting? If you have, what changes have you noticed in your life?”

How To Use 9010 Lifestyle To Achieve Success

Dreaming big dreams has always been the starting point of great success. Nothing works faster than for you to cast off your own limitations. Begin dreaming and fantasizing about the wonderful things that you can become, have, and do. Nothing is more important, and nothing works faster.

William Shakespeare wrote, “Do not be like the cat who wanted a fish but was afraid to get his paws wet.” You must be willing to take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. When you make attempts and attain the success within reach, your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence will go up immediately. You will feel empowered about yourself and your ability to deal with what happens to you. The reason why so many people accomplish so little is because they never allow themselves to take action and achieve the kind of life that is possible for them.

Theory Of Constraints

As outlined by Eliyahu M. Goldratt and Jeff Cox in their  “Theory of Constraints” –  is a set of tools to achieve positive change agents which can be used to manage constraints, thereby increasing profits. Thus making it possible to use this powerful principle to dream big dreams and live without limits. This is one of the greatest breakthroughs in modern thinking.

Goldratt found that in every process when seeking to accomplish any goal, there is a bottleneck or choke cord that serves as a constraint on the process. This constraint seeks to set the speed at which you achieve any particular goal. If you concentrate all of your creative energies and attention on alleviating the constraint, you can speed up the process faster than by doing any other single thing.

Allow me to illustrate using an example. Well, this is actually a true story. Imagine this! I was a very successful Project Manager for an AMAZING company. I was working 10-12 hours a day average. I was SLAVING my butt off for years and years. And I wasn’t seeing the progress of my hard work and dedication as I was doing everything in my business myself.

After working 10 – 12 hours a day for the years which ran by, I’d be exhausted. Needless to say, I was also watching my family fall apart. My stress levels were off the charts but I felt trapped. I needed my job to provide for the needs and well-being of my family but the time I was spending at my job made the home situation worse. I wanted to give up!

BUT THANK GOODNESS I DIDN’T GIVE UP!!!

My utilization of the 90/10 lifestyle has afforded me with the drive to dream big and succeed. I quit my job at that amazing company and went into business for myself. I knew that I had a great skill and was certain that after so many years of polishing my craft that I could competently handle my own business.

9010 Rule In Action

The 90/10 Rule In Action

My “Virtual Assistants” do over 90% of my work for me. No crap! No BS! No making stuff up! I literally figured out how to delegate 90% of what I did to virtual assistants and freelancers around the world. Don’t think for a minute that achieving this was an overnight achievement. There were many times I fell along the way. I went through hell out there, to get to where I am today!

I successfully launched my own business SOLELY POWERED by a 100% virtual team.

This is not an attempt at self-praise nor conceit. I’ve been humbled by the journey it took to get me here and I feel somewhat scornful when people treat me like a hero when I go to conferences now. I’m just a normal person who created a foolproof system to delegate effectively, and build an incredible virtual team!

What Are Your Constraints?

Constraints refer to the things, whether real or imagined which prevent you from achieving your goals. Therefore it is important that you identify the factors holding you back? Is it your level of education or skill? Is it your current occupation or job? Is it your current environment or level of health? Is it the situations that you are in today? What sets the pace for you achieving your goal?

Bearing in mind that learning should never stop, you can unlearn the things which debilitate your progress. It is possible to get yourself out of the situations which you have gotten yourself into, but you must be willing to identify the constraints which prevent you from seeing the silver-lining which accompany the clouds.

Your Spare Time and How To Make Money From Home In – Part 1

How To Make Money From Home In Your Spare Time – Part 1

how to make money from home in your spare timeWould you like to know how to make money from home in your spare time? I bet you would. But, do you have sufficient time to spare to start your own business, from home? You will probably say NO to this question. And if you could find at least one hour a day, would you consider starting something that you would like to do that … (this post is prepared by John, Wealthy Affiliate Premium Member)

 

  1. will increase your present retirement income, maybe doubled, tripled …?
  2. could help you retire earlier AND very comfortably?

For those of you who answered yes to either of these questions, I have some good news for you. Read on … If you answered no, then, don’t waste your time to continue reading, this is definitely not for you. Continue doing what you think is good for you and your family, and good luck. For all the others, I have written this article. I have divided into four part so that it is more digestible. But don’t worry, each part is easy to understand. So, let’s get started …

How to make money from home in your spare time – Part 1


As you are still reading, I take it that you are interested in finding that extra hour a day to make a huge difference in your future; the comfort and happiness of your loved ones; either as a retiree, or in view of your approaching retirement.

As you continue reading I will show how to find that extra hour that you don’t even know you have. To turn this missing hour into a very profitable business, from home, doing the things that you always loved doing, but never could, because of … “lack of time!“.

Setting up your business part-time is not easy. Because the pitfalls are not lacking. Among them: the lack of time. Trust me, I know all about it, and I will share with you my unique method that will enable you to free up that one hour a day and to turn it into to a profitable online business from home.

Fortunately, it is possible to free up to 1 hour per day or more!


*** Advertising ***

Are you on fire to retire early? Please check this PLAN.

 


You will discover 11 actions that you can easily take to save you the time you need to start your business part-time.

Here is the million dollar questions …

  • Would you like to buy time?
  • Up to an hour or more per day?

An hour to help you start your business on the Internet; develop an audience; become independent and leave your boss once and for all, if you are still under employment; or to add a good chunk of money to your retirement income if you are already retired.

And for that, you don’t even have to be a genius.

Honestly, it is not by chance that I tell you this, because we all have the dream of saving an hour or more a day; even those who have answered no to my questions above. By answering yes, you simply proved that you believe in yourself, so, this is already half the battle won.how to make money from home in your spare time

Whether it is to start your activity on the Internet, to have free time for yourself or to spend more time with your loved ones, this hour is available for you to use as you wish.

But it is not something you can do by snapping your fingers or manipulating a magic wand.

You know it already: we all have 24 hours in our days.

On average, in a day, you have 8 hours of work (if you still are on the 9 to 5); 6 to 8 hours of sleep; 1 to 2 hours of transport; 2 hours to eat all the meals of the day and 1 hour to care for our body, shower or take a bath.

If we had to be content with that, we can conclude that we have about 7 hours of free time each day.

In theory, it should not be a problem, because even if we have a job in the meantime, we still have plenty of time to work on a project.

Unfortunately in practice, it’s not at all like that.

Because in addition to hours of work, sleep and others, we find ourselves with other activities to take care of, namely hobbies, entertainment, sports, artistic, social, charity, etc.

As a human being, it is only natural that we all have these sorts of activities in our daily lives.

Otherwise, we would spend all our days dying of boredom with a deck of cards in hand, as was the case for our great grandparents.

Suddenly, instead of finding yourself with 7 hours of free time, you find yourself in reality with crumbs.

Between you and me, it’s a big problem!

Because for most of us, it is this lack of time that we need to create our own little profitable business.

Some manage to build their business, but for a large majority of us (and this may be your case), we have a lot of trouble to kick start our business.

So much that we may end up with a nervous breakdown if we are not careful, exhausted with all our un-used strengths and resources, and disgusted for not being able to enjoy life like many other successful entrepreneurs.

Fortunately, a problem always has a solution

Apart from moving to settle on Jupiter or Saturn, it is scientifically impossible to live more than 24 hours in a day.

So, it is quite useless to try to lengthen the duration of your days.

Since we cannot create days of 25 hours or more, how can we manage to free one hour per day under such conditions?

Before I explain how you can save time in your days, you first need to know why you cannot find that time for your business project.

It’s very important to know that, because it will save you a lot of time, effort and maybe even money.

So, let’s go through it together …

Why you cannot find time to start your own business


Generally, when we cannot start our own business, whether on the Internet or elsewhere, we instantly believe that the problem is the lack of time.

That is to say, we cannot even fit an hour for a project into our personal agenda.

And to be honest with you, I am well placed to tell you that, because I had exactly the same problem. When I wanted to build my business at the same time as had a j.o.b to go to.

But that’s not all, because early 2001, I decided to embark on the entrepreneurial adventure, especially on the Internet. So of course, at first, I thought that I did not have the time to start anything and thought of keeping a job at the same time. Because I thought that setting up an activity would require a lot of work, a lot of time, a lot of energy and a lot of money to get started.

But, despite all the constraints I had, such as commuting distance, sports activities, the big stack of homework and the hours to train me in marketing, I managed to find some free time.

I don’t mean to tell you that I managed to free myself 10 hours a day as if by magic, it would be to pretend to be a Mythomaniac by telling you that.

On the other hand, I managed to free myself an hour a day at least. And in some exceptional cases, I even managed to free myself 4 hours in my days.

In short, all this to say that despite my research, my job alternately and all the constraints I had, I could find free time to work on my business project.

First of all, are we really lacking free time?

Honestly, in 95% of cases, it is very likely that you are are not short of any free time.

Because in reality, you have more free time than you think.

We are not going to lie to each other: if at this moment you can read these lines, it is because somewhere you have managed to find some free time.

Even if it’s not the amount of free time you’ve been hoping to have 🙂

IcebergTo put it simply, free time is like an iceberg. It is known that 90% of an iceberg is under the surface of the water (this is called the hidden side of the iceberg).

In the same way that we underestimate the size of an iceberg, we all tend to underestimate the free time we have.

So, one may wonder if the real problem is not the lack of time, but rather a lack of priority.

That is, the real problem is that we do not know how to differentiate between a priority activity and an activity that is not.

That’s why we cannot find free time to move forward on our project, whether to launch an activity on the Internet or otherwise.

And you know why ? Because we have not defined our priorities in advance.

Basically, it’s like playing roulette by betting $1 on all the numbers at each turn.

In this way, you may win a few rounds, but you will have a hard time winning the game; or even less to win the jackpot, because you will cause a lot of loss in the meantime.

However, if you decided to bet big on a limited number of numbers, then you have more chances to win the game and to hit the jackpot.

And so, if you come to understand that your real problem is not a lack of time, but a lack of priority, then you have taken a big step forward.

Because understanding this, you will realize that the time needed to work on your business project has always been there. It was just necessary to make it a priority.

Talking about priority, tell me what are your priorities?


how to make money from home in your spare timeI am now inviting you to take something to write and to take note of all of them before continuing to read the rest of this article.

Because it will serve as a basis for everything else; not to mention that your chances of finding free time will skyrocket.

Once you have written  down your priorities on a sheet of paper (or your computer note pad), then at that point, you will be ready to discover the many ways to gain one hour a day.

And to choose those that will help you progress with your priorities.

In short, if you have already written your priorities, then you are finally ready to discover …

How to make money from home in your spare time.

This is not a new project - $1 dollar project - but it will work for you if you follow all instructions. Please check this PROJECT.

 


Before we begin, know that the list we are going to work on is not an exhaustive list, there are surely other ways to save one hour per day and use it to supplement your present or future retirement income.

If you know of any, do not hesitate to share it in the comments section at the bottom of this article, it can help some readers who are in the same boat as you. 😉

This is how you are going to find the time to start your own business:

  • Gain back the control of your smartphone
  • Get to bed early and work earlier in the morning
  • Do not overload your day
  • When asked to help, refuse by all means
  • Chuck your TV through the window (or reduce its use)
  • Automate repetitive tasks
  • Always finish what you started
  • Do not make an appointment unless it’s really important
  • Have recent equipment and of quality to work with
  • Stop going on Facebook and other social networks at will
  • Relearn how to manage your email box
  • A word before you leave
Anyway, are you ready to devour everything?

If so, then let’s get started 😀

Gain back the control of your smartphone

We are not going to lie, we are all more or less addicted to smartphones, at a point where we spend more than an hour a day on it (according to an article I read on Forbes).

Why? Because it’s texting, notifications, apps, instant messengers, and so on, that push us to spend a lot of time on our smartphones.

So, it’s no longer you who make the law, it’s your smartphone that makes the law. It’s your smartphone that decides what you have to do with your days.

And that is very annoying, especially if you want to start your activity on the web and become free of your boss.

So of course, the idea behind all this, it’s going to be to return the process; that is to say, to become again the person who decides whether or not, you want to spend time on your smartphone.

Plane modeHow to do that? First, you have to remove all notifications from your smartphone, ie Facebook, Skype, Messenger, Mail, etc.

Then, make it a habit of putting your smartphone in “airplane mode” every time you work on your project (that’s what I did, right now, it’s in airplane mode).

And finally, last thing, set a time frame where you do not have the right to touch your smartphone and one where you will have the right to use it.

In this way, you will become the ONLY master of your smartphone🙂

Get to bed early and work earlier in the morning

You know, many of us want to start an activity on the web, but for many, there is THE BOSS who is always present. Which forces us to work in the evening on our project.

Unfortunately, it’s a bad idea.

Why ? Because in general, when we come home from work, we do not feel like working on our project. We want to do only one thing: to sit on the couch!

It is not for nothing that we jump on the sofa at the end of the day, because a day of work exhausts us literally.

Then, once we hit the couch, we tend to postpone until tomorrow what we promised us to do tonight; that is to say, work on our business project.

Then we do the same thing again the next day; the day after tomorrow; then the following day; and so on. It becomes a vicious circle.

Between you and me, we’ve all done it before. Including me.

So, if you really want to save an hour a day for your business project, postpone it and do the work in the early morning.

In short, how? Already, you need to define the time that you will need to work on your project in the morning, in general, a minimum of an hour.

Then you will have to learn to get up earlier than usual, for example, to get up at 6:00 am instead of 7:00 am.

Not to mention that you will have to set the time you have to go to bed earlier to make sure you get up earlier.

And finally, get in the habit of working early on your project.

In this way, you will save an hour each day to start your activity; you will tend to procrastinate less and above all, you will have the evening just to rest. Pretty good plan huh! 😉

Do not overload your day

Often, when we want to launch an activity on the web and we do not have all day to do it. We tend to overload things to do, despite the short time available.

For example, write an article, make a podcast, reply to e-mails, reply to comments, update our blog, modify our landing page, create a logo, contact a partner, etc.

Well, it’s good to want to do your best to start your activity on the web. It shows that you are serious about it.

Only thing, if you really want to save time, know that it is not a good idea to proceed in this way.

Why?

Because it is not by doing many things that you will start your activity on the web 10 times faster.

You can do a lot of things in a very short time, like 30 tasks in an hour; maybe it’s possible.

Except that among these 30 tasks performed, most of them have no impact on your web activity.

Do you know why most tasks are useless? Because there are really very few things that have a huge impact on your business project.

For example, updating your WordPress blog has no more impact than posting a guest article to a blogger.

Because by publishing on your blog, you will gain a lot of visibility; while by doing a simple update on your blog, you might not have earned a single extra potential customer.

So, instead of saving time by doing a lot of things, you waste your time doing unnecessary things.

I know, it’s completely counter-intuitive what I’m telling you, even I did not believe it a few years ago.

Yet, I learned the truth by doing the exact opposite. I can tell you that it hurt my ego when I perceived the difference.

In short, how can you avoid doing this?

The first thing you need to do is understand that the amount of finished work does not mean that you will progress faster.

Then, from the moment you understand that, you need to identify the essential tasks of your business.

For this, you will need to make a table in 2 columns.

One column for all essential tasks for your business and another column for all non-essential tasks.

To give you a concrete example, here is a table of my personal tasks that I find essential for me:

  • Publish articles
  • Publish podcasts
  • Train myself in efficiency and marketing.

As well as tasks that are not:

  • Create a logo
  • Make the promotion on Facebook
  • Analyze my competitors on Twitter
  • Update my WordPress blog
  • Look for a new WordPress plugin
  • Pay for Facebook or Google AdWord advertising
  • Improve the design of my blog
  • Improve the design of my emails
  • Create business cards
  • Etc.

I advise you to reserve a good half hour to complete your table of essential tasks and non-essential tasks. Once completed, you can continue to Part 2 of how to make money from home in your spare time. (Part 2 coming soon).

Your 1st Step To An Easy Retirement Income

easy retirement incomeTo secure an easy retirement income, it is necessary to think about it very early in life and it is not once arrived at the end of your career that you must start to wonder about what will happen once you are retired. One thing that you can be sure of is that if you don’t do anything about now, no matter what your age is, you will suffer from a much lower income, all of a sudden.

Remember that you also have some responsibilities towards your family. It is not because you are retired that you are free to relax completely. You still have the same obligations to guarantee a comfortable life to your loved ones.

Although it is difficult to think about it at the age of 25, it is better to prepare yourself early to ensure a more or less “comfortable” income in retirement. So, the earlier the better!

Now, if you are already in retirement, the good news is that it is not too late to improve your way of living, and why not?.. to have a much better lifestyle than you ever had, even at the peak of your working life.

How to manage your retirement over the years


1 – Prepare yourself psychologically for retirement

The baby boomer generation have already reached retirement, and many will still be retiring. There is a life after working life. Some will be happy to be retired and others would prefer, even need to continue working.

2 – How to prepare for retirement?

We must see the retirement, as a new life. Discovering a passion, participating in volunteering, being able to travel. The most important thing to do to prepare for retirement is to feel good. Retirement is above all a state of mind.

3- When can you retire?

In some countries, retirement is regulated by law. Despite what is applied, it is sometimes possible to advance your retirement. Depending on present situation, if you still have days off, it might be wise for you to take them to advance the date of your retirement.

4 – Is it possible for you to cumulate your retirement and an other income?

If you prefer to continue working, it is quite possible to cumulate your part-time job and your retirement. Thus you can delay your retirement date either by combining employment with retirement or by means of a progressive retirement. Consult with your present employer to decide what’s best for you and them.

It is also possible to start your own business early on, during your spare time and weekends, and then, you benefit from your retirement pension, as a fixed income.

When do I know if I am ready to retire?

This is the million dollar question, which can be broken down into 3 simple questions:

  1. Do I want to retire now?
  2. Is it the right moment?
  3. Am I tired or otherwise fit?

So many questions to ask yourself to avoid regretting your choice. In the following paragraphs, I will help you make the right choice by sharing with you my personal life experience:

  • How I started several part time businesses early on in life
  • Why did I do that?
  • And why did I really never had a boss to tell me what to do

So, stick with me and find all the information you need to prepare for your retirement, or to improve your way of life, if you are already in retirement.

Okay? So let’s get started …

Important 4 reasons why many people fail in marketing.

honesty

I've read a lot of posts articles on this topic and think this content has something important to say.

Most people that try online marketing will fail (when it comes to making money, 90% fail). That’s just the facts, man. (post by  Brendan Mace)

The GOOD NEWS is that new marketers fail for predictable reasons. If you can avoid those reasons, you can be successful online.

And that’s where this blog post comes in.

Ok… So here goes.

This post is going to be straight to the point. No sugar coating.

You might agree with me about the wisdom below. If not, move on to destination where 90% of work is designed for you.

Let’s get started…

Reason #1 = You Don’t Have a Website

There are loads of tools and courses out there that brag about not needing a website or hosting. I want you to know that they’re LYING to you. It’s profitable to tell people that something is easy. It’s not profitable to tell people that something takes a bit of work.

That’s why you won’t find a bunch of marketers telling you to get a website running.

They don’t care.

But let me ask you this…

Have you ever heard of a single person making a living online WITHOUT a website?

It just doesn’t happen.

I’ve been in the marketing business for over 8 years now, and I can’t think of a SINGLE example.

There are many reasons to build your own website. There’s not even one reason to put this step off.

You might need a website to:

  • Host a landing page
  • Create a blog
  • Set up niche sites
  • Be the go-to-guy

At the end of the day, everything starts and ends with a website.

Get one ASAP.

Reason #2 – You’re Not Helping People

I’m an email marketer.

You probably know that, and have subscribed to my email list before.

There’s always one thing I tell people that SHOCKS them.

I’m about to share it with you, so keep your shorts clean.

My autoresponder sequence contains 210+ emails.

This is also known as the “follow-up series” and they are the messages that subscribers get after opting in.

That’s not the shocking part yet, although over 200 is a lot.

The shocking part is when I tell people which email makes the most money.

Take a look at #6 in this list

email marketing for newbies

In most of my emails, I’m either selling something directly, or proving a tutorial that indirectly compensates me in some way.

Message #6 is not selling anything. And it’s my most profitable email by far.

Here’s a look at the email:

how to build a list

… You know why this email is the best?

It helps people.

When you help people make money online, they’ll reward you with loyalty for life.

Lots of times it takes just a couple minutes to answer someone’s question. And then shortly after, they’ll inquire about my coaching or buy things through my affiliate links.

I even get subscribers that email me because they want to give me the commission for a purchase.

You will probably underestimate the power of helping. 

It’s not your fault. You see wantrapreneur jokers all day long trying to make a quick buck by slamming links down your throat. The reality is that people buy from real people (or brands) they know and trust.

Start helping people.

Even something as simple as learning how to set up web hosting can make you hundreds or thousands per month.

Did you know that HostGator pays affiliates up to $125 per hosting sale?

That means that you could help somebody set up hosting for about 10 minutes, and end up making a smooth $125 commission.

Talk about a good income per hour.

Helping people works!

Reason #3 – You’re Jumping Instead of Fine-Tuning

This is a really big one. The truth

And I did it in the beginning as well. The results were devastating.

When you learn how to do something new online, the instinct is to keep looking for something else.

There are a couple reasons for this behaviour, but the main one is that a new strategy is not going to be successful right away.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your online business won’t be either.

Whether your thing is list buildingblogging or creating niche sites.

The key is to pick something, and then stick with it.

Let me share a life story… (by Brendan Mace)

I’m a list builder.

Like every other email marketer, I learned the biz from scratch.

When I started list building a couple years ago, I used to lose my shirt.

I’d set up a funnel, buy some traffic and LOSE money.

It sounds terrible, right?

Well within three months, I was able to “fine-tune” and tweak things to make a profit.

Most of us know that if you can make a profit in list building — it’s game over.

If for every $1 you spend, you make $2. Well, you can build an unlimited subscriber list on near autopilot. But you’re not going to make it to that point overnight.

It’s the little things that make the BIG DIFFERENCE

I’ll bet you don’t hear that everyday.

Here’s an example.

In Aweber, there’s an option to set up where to redirect new subscribers.

I always tell new students that here’s your opportunity to make back your ad spend.

So the most common choice is either to use a “thank you page” or send to an “instant offer”

My preference is to the latter.

But a common mistake that most people make is they set up the “Thank You Page” option, but ignore the “Already Subscribed” feature.

You should set up both. See here:

how to build a list

Now this isn’t a HUGE deal.

But not changing the “Already Subscribed” page is leaving money on the table.

It’s small tweaks like these that make the difference between making money and LOSING IT.

Over time, you should be able to tweak ONE asset enough to make a profit.

Focus on that. Don’t switch to something else.

Reason #4 – Information Overload

We live in an information age, and it’s spoiling your road to success.

Make no mistake. This is a problem.

Seth GodinSeth Godin said it years ago “Marketers are all liars”

Now maybe not ALL OF THEM are dishonest. But most will be sharing marketing “secrets” that are unused for a reason.

Remember that most people don’t make money online. But it’s profitable for business to pretend that you’re the man.

And to do that, you need to teach people.

The dangerous part is when unsuccessful marketers are telling you how to run a business.

If it didn’t work for them, it’s not going to work for you.

Yes, you should help people. I made a strong case for that in reason #2. But please people limit your help to things that you actually know about.

Anybody with half an hour on their hands could learn how to set up hosting.

Trying to tell somebody how to make $1,5xx.42 in the next 32 seconds is not something you learn in a day. Heck, it’s not something most learn in a lifetime.

The problem is that this information overload is inevitable.

You should only listen to advice from a mentor that you know you can trust.

It’s not rocket science. But it doesn’t include fluff or falsehoods either.

Whatever you do, make sure that you learn from someone that knows what they are talking about.

Otherwise you could waste years copying wantrapreneurs pretending to hold the “one secret” to owning lambo’s and expensive watches. And maybe even become one yourself.

Wrapping it Up

You may think you already know how to make money online.

Heck, you might even have made a buck or two.

You will not change your life until you stop these mistakes.

To be clear, these 4 reasons are common. They affect most us, and they even messed with me in the beginning. I wasted years moving around shiny new methods. Only to find out that I wasn’t going to get anywhere until I took action from someone that knows their stuff.

No One Told Me About Blogging 5 thingns

Blogging is one way to increase your presence online. It helps you develop your expertise and your brand. A blog is a place to house your content which can then be used in multiple ways. (by Kerri Foster)

If you are serious about building a business online blogging is an essential tool.

As a new blogger, I’m struggling with some things I wasn’t told ahead of time. Some of them held me back and some things, like finding my voice is an ongoing process.

Here are 5 things no one told me about blogging.

1 Don’t Fear Competition

Crowds of bloggers
Bloggers around the world

With blogs and bloggers numbering in the millions, starting a blog is intimidating.

WPVirtuoso estimates there are over 152 million blogs! (Source: WPVirtuoso How Many Blogs Are on the Internet) The same article states that: ” a new blog is created somewhere in the world every half a second.”

Are you ready to run for the hills?

However, if you have something unique to say or a special expertise, or you’re especially good at interviewing experts, either one or both of these avenues might be right for you.

 

The important thing to remember is you are not competing with every single one of those blogs.

2 No Expertise? You Can be a Reporter

How to Steal Like and ArtistMany people online appreciate those who can report on what is going on in their niche. The sheer volume of content makes it impossible to be aware critical information they need to find success. Therefore, in the role of a reporter, you can create valuable content for your audience.

Google Search is your best friend in this role. Searching for articles, new, forums on the topic you report on will give you more material that you could ever use.

It’s not about copy that information, but rewriting it to suit your style, or repurposing the content. For example, you could take an article and make an infographic from the information.

This is a great way to build a large following, especially if you put your own unique slant and personality into your writing.

If you are worried about copyright issues doing this I recommend a book, How to Steal Like an Artist. It’s a short fun book to read and show why and how to steal like an artist.

3 Profitability Takes Time

Blog logoIf you plan to use your blog as your primary source of income then patience and persistence is a virtue.

I’d recommend you read a couple of blogs about blogging to help you understand the ins and outs of making money as a blogger.

Try: Copyblogger or Blogging Basics 101

You’ll need time to build a following and get subscribers, which is why it’s best to start blogging part-time while you do something else for income.

But if you find the right topic – and most importantly, you find your tribe – then it is possible to build up to a very decent 5 and even 6 figure income.
However, if there are other uses for a blog.

he reason I have a blog is to house my content to make distribution to my list easier and to extend my social media reach.

Either way as an internet marketer a blog is one of your best relationship building tools.

4 Find Your Voice

A Cat Finding it's VoiceFinding your blogging voice will take time, practice and action. With time your own voice will begin to manifest.

So why do you need to find your voice?

You don’t want to sound like everyone else, nor do you want to appeal to every person out there.

First, when you have your own unique voice, people have a reason to like you. You’re authentic, and you have something to say. Don’t be afraid to state your opinions and back them with facts. This will cause your tribe to gravitate to you as you build more and more rapport with them.

Second, if you try to appeal to everyone, you will appeal to no one.

Choose your perfect reader and then speak to this person.

For example, if your topic is motorcycles, you wouldn’t want to appeal to everyone who has a motorcycle, doesn’t have a motorcycle, likes motorcycles and even doesn’t like motorcycles.

But if you speak to the 55-year-old dentist who rides his Harley Davidson on weekends, then you’ve narrowed your niche to professionals on Harleys. And while this excludes most everyone else, it makes those professionals on Harleys much more likely to become loyal readers and listeners.

5 Become Well Connected

ConnectionsAs I suggested in point three reading other blogs about blogging is a good way to learn your art. You can also find other blogs in your niche to see what they write about. Commenting on articles you see and like helps build those connections. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other bloggers to ask questions.

As you become more connected your reach expands and so does your authority. You start to build that important equation of know like and trust.

Also follow bloggers on social media, Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms you like to use yourself.

While people blog for a multitude of reasons for an internet marketer blogging is an essential tool that makes growing your business easier overall.

Whether you want to use your blog simple to house and share content or to build your blog into your primary business income, you will be inspired, challenged and sometimes frustrated the process but you will never be bored.

What obstacles stand in your way of starting a blog?
