Tiny Niches = Big Profits?

What about HUGE Niches and MASSIVE Profits?

There is a ton of marketing advice online about niching things down until you get to a small, fanatical group of people who will buy anything and everything in that niche.

Tiny Niches = Big Profits?

And this is great advice – I offer it myself and follow it all the time.

But… you know how I like to be contrary. Sort of like, if everyone is selling stock, I’m buying. If they’re buying, I’m selling.

And if they’re niching things down to the ridiculous, I try going after HUGE niches that have a TON of people in them.

For example… how many people like to eat good food? Or see movies? Or drive cars? LOTS of people.

So I got to thinking… what if you made an offer that appealed to a ton of people?

For example, how to take vacations for free.

This isn’t anything sketchy – it really is possible to

How to Get Super-Targeted Facebook Traffic on Demand

This month we’re continuing our series on how to build your own business using a lead magnet, a squeeze page and Facebook.

How to Get Super-Targeted Facebook Traffic on Demand

First we started with creating the perfect lead magnet that targets your audience and makes them sign up for your list.

Next we covered exactly how to build a squeeze page or landing page that gets those visitors to say, “YES! Add me to your list NOW!”

Today in our third installment, we’re going to cover how to get as much traffic as you want from Facebook. And of course you’re going to send this traffic to your squeeze page to build your targeted list big and fast.

Once you have learned all three of these skills, you can literally go into any market and create a list building machine in just days.

Better still, you can take it one step further and build a complete product funn

Building a Facebook Business Page?

15 Things You MUST Know to Get REAL Results

If you want an engaging Facebook business page, here’s what you need to know:

Building a Facebook Business Page?

1: Don’t confuse business pages with personal profiles.

If you create a personal profile for your brand instead of a Facebook Business Page, you’re going to miss out on content creation tools, analytics and paid promotional opportunities.

Worse yet, people will have to send you a friend request before they can engage with you.

2: Don’t create a ‘professional profile’ associated with your business.

Let’s say you have a personal profile on Facebook and you want a second profile for professional reasons. This goes against Facebook’s terms of service and could get you in trouble.

3: Choose a friendly, engaging cover photo.

This cover photo takes up most of the room above the fold on your

Case Study: $17,600 in Five Days on a $297 Investment

A friend of mine who wishes to remain anonymous has agreed to tell you one of his money-making methods. And while he might be leaving some minor details out, I think there is more than enough here to set you on a very similar path if you choose.

Case Study: $17,600 in Five Days on a $297 Investment

This is what he told me…

    “Here’s an example of how I made over $17,600 in five days by investing $297 and a few hours of my time.

    Okay, I didn’t really invest my time – I actually paid a freelancer to do the work for me. But this is something you can easily do yourself if you’re willing to put in a little time.

    I found some dynamite high-quality PLR on free traffic generation. It was good stuff, and even contained some things I didn’t know.

    It included a massive manual, several written bonuses and a sales page.

    And at this price point, I knew that there would

7 Outsourcing Secrets to Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck

Let’s be candid – You can discover these outsourcing secrets the easy way or the hard way, but you’re going to find this out sooner or later.

7 Outsourcing Secrets to Get the Biggest Bang for Your Buck

The hard way is the way most marketers do it. They make mistakes when outsourcing, lose time and/or money, and then learn from their mistakes.

I propose we cut out all that nonsense and I’ll just tell you what you need to know here and now. Ready?

1: Outsource customer service as soon as humanly possible.

Reason why: If you don’t, you’ll waste half of each day doing things like answering support tickets, changing email addresses for members who changed their email address (yes, that is a thing) issuing refunds, answering questions and so forth.

That is time you could spend doing something else like… let’s see… wait, I know – MAKING MONEY.

How to Make More Sales Being Contrary

Here’s something I’ve been playing with, and my results have been pretty good, too. Do the opposite of what everyone else is doing…

How to Make More Sales Being Contrary

A few months ago a friend was launching a big product with lots of cash prizes for the top affiliates. I knew there would be tons of affiliate competition, with every affiliate trying to out-do the others with bigger and better bonuses.

How to compete?

I decided not to.

Instead, I thought about what every affiliate’s bonus pages would look like: Highly polished, slick, professional, lots of graphics, videos, etc.

Odds are they would all start to look very much alike, right?

So I thought… what if I did something different?

What if my page looked like something you might get in the mail – black and white sales letter, using the Courier typewriter font, very old-school looking…

And what

Are You Denying Your Readers the Netflix Experience They Crave?

Pssst… I know you’ve probably never done this, but I have. I’ve sat down and binge watched a whole bunch of episodes from one series on Netflix, and yes, I enjoyed it.

Are You Denying Your Readers the Netflix Experience They Crave?

There, now that I have my confession out the way, I have to tell you what I’ve been thinking about lately.

Why is it that we binge watch shows on Netflix, but we dole out content to our readers like it’s bread crumbs? And scarce bread crumbs, at that?

Think about it – you want to learn something new. Maybe you want to learn everything you can about video marketing.

So you start looking, and you find a great article on a website about this exact thing. The site even offers to send you an entire email course on video marketing and you sign up.

Problem is, you want the rest of the course NOW. So you keep searching, and you land on

Think You’re Not ‘Expert’ Material? I Do…

When you’re an expert, you command respect in your niche. People listen to you, they pay attention to what you say and most of all they buy your products.

a

Being the expert in your own niche is like writing your own ticket to freedom.

Granted, you’re never going to become “The Expert” in a massive field such as weight loss. But niche it down to “Weight loss for new mothers” or “Weight loss for brides-to-be” or Weight loss for video gamers,” and you can indeed become the expert in your niche.

I was reading Russell Brunson’s new book, “Expert Secrets,” and it starts out by giving some examples of just how easy it is to become an expert.

When Russell was in college, he tried internet marketing but failed. Then on spring break when he was bored out of his mind, he and a friend decided to build a potato gun.

The thing was, they didn’t know HOW to build a

How to Reduce Your Unsubscribes with One Word

A certain percentage of new list subscribers will unsubscribe from your list almost immediately.

How to Reduce Your Unsubscribes with One Word

They’ll get the lead magnet you offered them and then POW! Unsubscribe. You’ve got to wonder why.

Are they afraid you’re going to sell them something? Maybe. If you’re building a list of online marketers, you’ve really got to wonder about their thinking. After all, don’t they want to learn about marketing? And isn’t getting on other people’s marketing lists a good way to learn?

Anyway, here is the trick to reducing these immediate unsubscribes no matter what your niche is:

On the letter that new subscribers get, remove the word “subscribe” and all of its variations.

You know the ones: “Thank you for subscribing,” or “You are now subscribed,” or “If you did not subscribe, please click here,” etc.

You’re ‘Buying’ Your Sales – You Just Don’t Realize It

Every sale you make is a sale you have somehow purchased. And once you get your mind around this, marketing will become a lot easier.

You're Buying Your Sales - You Just Don't Realize It

Free traffic? There is no such thing. Maybe you didn’t spend money to get the traffic, but guaranteed you spent time.

Sales from affiliates? You spent time recruiting them and you are paying them a commission on each sale.

Sales to your own list? You bought those customers from the method you used to get them on your list, warming them up, getting them to trust you, etc.

You are always investing SOMETHING to make a sale.

Which is why, if you haven’t already, you need to learn to make $1.50 on every $1 of advertising you spend. By spending money on proven methods to get sales, you can rapidly scale up.

You spend $1000 on Facebook ads and make $1500? Congrats, you now have a sustainable bu
