How Online Video Changed My Business

I have a personal story to tell you that I feel will help inspire, and also show you exactly how my business took off. Also, I will also tell you about some huge mistakes I made along the way.

As many of you know I have been earning income online since 2003 when I was in high school. I even had my first paying SEO and traffic client at that time. It has now been 10 years that I have been making money for myself from my computer.

Since 2006 I have been earning a full time living online. To clarify I will be the first to tell you that I wasn’t actually “killing” it online at that time, but I was making enough to where we could pay our bills, and I was making as much for myself as I was at a regular salaried job.

Before I started college my goal was to be self sufficient, and I achieved that goal.

I made some money through a pet business I had, with paid SEOclients, and with affiliate marketing the hard way! Yes, I say the hard way because I wasn’t building a list. I didn’t start doing that until 2008, and it wasn’t until 2009 that I really realized how important list building is!

Now, this is not going to be an email telling you about list building because if you have followed me for any amount of time you know just how important it is to your success or failure online.

It was 2007 when I remember having my first real success with video. I recall having my first video reach over 10,000 views. That was a huge deal for me, and in the description was a link to my pet website at that time. That video still generates a tons of views to this day!

Also that same year I started to earn over $300 per month extra income as an affiliate for eBay. I remember making several videos to promote the hot Christmas product of that time the Nintendow Wii and the Nintendo Wii Fit the following year. Video was responsible for about 90% of that success. At Christmas time each of those years I cleared over $1,000 in commissions.

For someone who up to that point had made most of his money for clients, it was a big step. In 2008 things really started to change for my business in a big way.

My success with that prompted me to create a course on affiliate marketing to help people learn how to make a few extra hundred dollars per month.

I decided to create a course called “No Money Down Affiliate System”. It was a 30 video course teaching people exactly how to setup the same affiliate systems I was using with completely free methods.

I have completely revised and updated that course since that time, and it is now called No Cost Income Stream.

Back to 2008 when I created that course I used Camtasia’s screen capture software to make the course step by-step, and easy to follow. I also decided to sell private label rights to the course to increase my sales.

I launched that course on the Warrior Forum, and was blown away at how much I made.

With that first video course of mine I was able to build an email list of proven buyers. So after that success I got to work on another course, and sold that to them. Then I started using my list more aggressively for email marketing.

In 2010 I had my first six figure launch. It wasn’t a traditional launch, but was one that I rolled out throughout the year, and had various affiliates promote it.

The course was my IM Guru PLR which consisted of 5 of my video courses all bundled into one offer. I of course built an even larger list at that point.

Around that time I had my first $1,000 day as an affiliate by promoting my now business partner and good friend Eric Holmlund’s course. Eric was doing a 7 day firesale for a great course with rights. I pushed that product, and generated over $13,000 in commissions. I was completely floored, and haven’t looked back since.

I continued to promote Eric’s future launches with my business partner Jeff Wellman, and we soon got his attention. That led to a business partnership that includes 3 six figure launches, and monthly membership program called our Real Coaching Club. You can get full details of that coaching club on this page:

Real Coaching Club

So far I have created over 20 successful full video courses, hundreds of individual videos, and I have reached people from every part of the globe. Also, because of videos I have been able to build my email list to over 40,000 people.

Without the use of video with my business it is legitimately scary to think where I would be today in my business. I am fully blessed to have the opportunity to do what I do on a daily basis. The freedom and lifestyle this business has brought me is unreal.

Why the Government Shutdown potentially made your life more profitable.

As you may have heard by now here in the United States our government has shut down because our congress could not reach an agreement on a budget. Regardless of where you stand on this topic, I want to let you know that this government shut down actually opens up a huge opportunity for you to profit online.

With a shut down like this it is almost a certainty that the stock market will be making some pretty serious moves. Whenever people are confused or unsure about the future ahead the stock market usually makes big shifts.

The problem is that the stock market is always changing, and will be changing now more than ever with the happenings in the government.

Profitable Content Creation – What to Do When You’re Running Out of Content Ideas (3 Big Tips)

Content Creation Tips

Content creation is a great way to bring in more prospects and profits. And you do want more prospects and profits, right? The struggle for many content marketers, both new and experienced, is consistently coming up with ideas for creating content. I’ve noticed that many go through a few stages in their
struggle to come up with content ideas. Let’s take a closer look at those three stages and more importantly, what to do about each one.

3 Stages

Stage 1 – Ideas are not flowing – When you sit down to create content you have to repeatedly stop and think about what to write about. The flow has not stopped, it’s just not as easy as it normally is for you.

What to Do – Step back and brainstorm. Make a list of content ideas. Don’t edit – just brainstorm. This is something you need to be doing anyway, so you always have a list of content ideas from which to pull.

Stage 2 – Ideas are a struggle – Even when you look at a list of your ideas, nothing pops out for you. It feels like you are seeing the ideas on a list, but they are not making sense in your head, and not making the trip from your head to your fingers.

What to Do – Take a trip to your supermarket and check out the titles on the covers of the magazines in the checkout line. Thousands of dollars have been spent deciding how to title these articles. Find titles that you can use in your niche and get busy creating great content.

Stage 3 – You are beginning to believe in writer’s block, even though it does not exist. Ideas are not only not flowing, ideas are just plain stuck. Your frustration level is high, and you’re honestly getting a little bit frightened by your lack of ideas.

What to Do – Go to your topic in EzineArticles and look at some of the top articles in your niche. See which ones are getting lots of traffic. Choose an idea that you know will appeal to your community and simply do a better job with it.This is not plagiarism. This is research because you are simply looking for ideas. You are not copying what someone else has said, you are just going to do a better treatment of it because of your skills.

The Next Step – Your next success step is to check out the 5.0 Version of Profitable Content Creation Templates where you get access to 21 Profitable Content Creation Templates designed for you to create prospect & profit pulling content for your blogs, articles, social media updates, marketing messages, information products and much more, all in 20 minutes or less!

My Thoughts On New Blogging With John Chow Course

Blogging With John Chow CourseEarlier this week popular Internet Marketing blogger John Chow just launched his new system called Blogging With John Chow.

I wanted to quickly let you know my thoughts on why I am going to be buying this for myself and why I think this should be an investment you make in your online business.

For the record after I buy it I will do my best to do a full video walk through of the course so you can make an even more informed decision.

Before even agreeing to promote this I checked the sales page and checked the Warrior Forum for honest reviews from people. What I saw on the sales page intrigued me because he is teaching honest, straight forward methods that work for him. He is not promising instant riches, he is using his own face in his video, and he is someone that is truly practicing what he teaches.

What I found on the Warrior Forum was people who were actually giving good recommendations of it including a woman in the Warrior Forum who is a senior member that is well respected in our industry. She felt the course had some really awesome parts to it that will help both newbies and advanced marketers wanting to take their blog to the next level.

She did say a drawback was that he didn’t go into 100% of the details on how to setup the plugins and tools he uses for his blogging business. He did provide them though and didn’t leave any of that information out about what he uses. My thought is that this shouldn’t be a hang up for you because you can easily go to YouTube or the Warrior Forum even to find tutorials on how to use these specific plugins if you need it.

I personally can’t say if this is even a problem (which isn’t in my opinion because you can easily find tutorials for those online) because I haven’t had a chance to go through the training yet.

Here are four reasons that I listen to John Chow, and why I think you should as well:

1. Over 140,000 Blog Subscribers
2. Over 100,000 Optins To His Email List
3. Over 97,000 Twitter Followers
4. He took his blog from $0 to $40,000 in 2 years time.

Did you notice above where I just said he went from $0 to $40,000?

He didn’t do it in one month, but achieved that success in a realistic time frame of 2 years time or 24 months. This right here tells that this is worth your time.

Take a look for yourself and as with most products I promote if you are unhappy you can get your investment returned.
