60 Day Challenge using the Online Marketing Classroom Coaching and Tuition

60 Day Challenge using the Online Marketing Classroom Coaching and Tuition

Happy Sunday everyone,

We are now almost halfway, 28 days to be precise, into the 60 Day Challenge using the Online Marketing Classroom coaching and tuition.

the 60-day challenge

If this is your first view of the diary of Mind Your Own Business I recommend you go back over the earlier emails in this series to follow the progress thus far.

 

We now have our shop live on the shopify platform and our FB business page set up to start creating content, run ads and drive traffic.

 

You can see the latest progress here: https://gamingedge.co

 

So what have we done in week 4?

 

Well, from the outside looking in, you won’t see very much (if any) change to the site or the Facebook page, that’s because we have set up the customer support portal, created an image for our Facebook ad using free image design software recommended by the Online Marketing Classroom course presenters.

In addition we have searched and identified the best suppliers for our product niche and created the sales channels to our store!

 

The store and Facebook pages are live now and our next steps is to start to drive traffic to the store.

 

Now all that might sound complicated if you’ve never built a store before, but I can assure you the Online Marketing Classroom coaching is excellent and very easy to follow.

 

Next week is week 5 of the 60 Day Challenge course, we are going to start to set up and run ads and learn how to process the sales and to scale up as the volume of sales increases.

how to find your niche

How to find your niche that will keep you motivated?

How to find your niche that will keep you motivated?

In the good old days, actually not that long ago, but even a year’s a long time in the online world you know.

 

Anyway, the gooroos used to recommend that you should build your business, whether that’s online or a traditional brick-and-mortar business, around your passion. ‘Follow your passion’ they’d say..

how to find your niche

Which is great, if you have a passion for public speaking, or sales and marketing, or social media, or online gaming – all these ‘passions’ have a massive following – millions of people are interested in these subjects and if you have a great passion for them, you can find a niche within a niche for yourself.

If you’d like to skip reading and want to know how you can start, click here.  But if I were you, try to read along. 🙂 

But what if you like something more quirky, maybe ‘trainspotting’ for example.

law of compounding

Now I am not for one minute knocking people who have a passion for the subject.

However, if you were thinking of starting a business with transporting as a niche, you would very likely go broke and lose a lot of time, energy and motivation.


You might be passionate to drive forward with your transporting business, but there is such a small market of interested people that it’s impossible to sell to them and create a sustainable long lasting business, even online.

 

So, I suggest you can follow your passion when researching your niche business, but make sure you do the right research before you decide to embark on that niche.

how to find your niche

There are a few simple steps you can do to complete the research needed to see whether the niche has longevity.

Small Business Ideas: You need a coach or a mentor

Small Business Ideas: You need a coach or a mentor

Hey everybody – having a great day?

 

Now, there’s an old saying I drag out from time to time and it’s this…

 

‘Those that can – DO, those that can’t TEACH, those that INSPIRE you – mentor!

 

The easiest way to describe a mentor is someone who you admire, inspires you would be a role model for you. It’s possible to have several mentors and have never met any one of them. HINT: if you do have mentors (who are alive) you should think about including a goal of actually meeting them.

small business ideas

I have several mentors, some are people I have worked with, some are friends and some I’ve not met yet. Each one brings different qualities to my life and inspire me and encourage me in different ways. They also provide wisdom and experience.

 

I’ve also been told that I inspire other people too, in different ways and at different levels of course, but mentor nonetheless.

 

Does that make me a great person – hell NO! No one’s perfect, but that shouldn’t stop you trying.

 

EVERY successful person has mentors, every successful person has a coach – some even several.

you need a coach or a mentor

 

So people say to me – ‘a coach is just a teacher anyway, so by your rule a teacher can’t do what he teaches, so neither can a coach’ My response to that is..

 

A teacher passes on the facts and knowledge of his subject matter that he/she has studied for and learned, not by doing or having done the subject that they teach.

Now that’s obvious in subjects such as history (it’s very unlikely a history teacher will have ‘done’ anything indirect relation to the subject). But, some subjects do lend themselves to teachers with experience who have done what they are now teaching. These teachers are almost certainly going to be coaches even though they are  categorised as teachers in the education system.



 

You can spot the difference; a teacher focuses on him/herself – it’s about delivering the subject matter and the student must learn it. A coach focuses on the success of the student; the coach will lead through experience, setting tasks, leading by example, learning by doing.

 

I do coach from time to time, I never teach. I also have coaches depending on what skills I need to improve on. As like a mentor, these can be real physical relationships or through virtual contact, through online courses or video calls.

 

If you two want to be successful you should look at the skills you want to improve on and decide which one(s) to work on first, then get a coach who can help.

 

If you’re looking to start your first online business and want to do it on a budget, I’ve partnered with a very successful online entrepreneur, follow the link here ( http://bit.ly/mbtcoach ) and take a look.

 

Until next time.



the 60-day challenge

MYOB Journal week #2 – The 60 Day Challenge

MYOB Journal week #2 – The 60 Day Challenge

Hi There, having a good weekend?

Enjoying the World Cup?

60 day challenge

I know I am, but not just because of the great football, but for the financial gains I’ve  made. But hey, you don’t wanna hear about that, you’re here for the Mind Your Own Business weekly journal update.

 

So last week you’ll recall I invested in the ‘Online Marketing Classroom’ the creators being; Aidan Booth and Steve Clayton. If you’ve never heard of those chaps (that’s British for ‘guys’ by the way) just use your favorite search engine and google ‘em.

 

So, come on Pete, how was week 2 then?

 



Alright, patience….

 

Week 2, which is actually the first week of diving into the member’s area. To be honest I was blown away (not literally you understand) by how much resources there is in the members area.

 

I would say if you’re a newbie there’s almost too much (except we all know there’s no such thing as ‘too much’ of anything – right?). There are so many alternate ways that you can use to start your online business, from ecommerce, to digital agencies, to affiliate marketing.

mind your own business

There’s even great tools that will help find that niche you so desperately want to get started in, tools to help build sales pages and I do mean SALES pages, they are pretty much plug and play. Every tool, every strategy has extensive online video training to go with it, along with downloadable guides and cheat sheets to help you get started.

 

The first thing these chaps suggest you do is take a long hard look at yourself and your situation where you are now, then taking that forward into where you want to be, including building a business plan that will take your ‘on paper’ idea into a full blown income generating online business.

 

So that’s how I started my week, going through the members area, browsing the subjects and strategies that I found immediately interesting then selecting the strategy that best fits my business plan, along with the underlying point that I was approaching this as if this was my first experience of online business. On that basis I’ve started on one of the programmes called The 60 Day Challenge, you can find this inside the members area once you have subscribed.

the 60-day challenge

So, my first 7 days of the 60 day challenge will be spent selecting the niche and the product I want in order to sell that product and start to see money coming in. I’ll let you know how I progress in next weeks (#3) article.

Have you got SOS?

Straightforward question..

 

Have you got SOS? Well chances are if you are in the throes of starting your own home-based business, especially if it’s an online based business, you will have fallen prone to SOS.

sos

You’ll know the symptoms; you search for something relating to your niche

 

if you’re asking yourself “what’s a niche” – we need to talk, so get in contact with me!

 

And BAM!

 

Right there near the top of page 1 of the results is “This Game Changer will push your business in to overdrive” or some other exciting headline.

 

So before you know it, you’ve clicked the link, started reading the sales page, scrolling down while the sales video is playing – now come on, we’ve all done it!

 

And there is it is your special offer – only whilst you are visiting this site today, get your hands on the Silver Bullet Widget to riches all for just $27 !!!!!!

 

OMG you say to yourself, this is IT, this will change my world overnight – and you hit pay.

 

If you didn’t know already, those are the symptoms of SOS, the Shiny Object Syndrome.

 

Don’t worry it’s not your fault, even now I still have to catch myself following that exact same route, the difference now is, I am not so green as I am cabbage looking (do I really look like a cabbage?)

shiny object syndrome

I’m wise to this and I’m aware of what my brain is trying to lead me in to. It’s certainly not as bad as some addiction like alcohol or drugs, but the sensations are very similar, you get really highly excited, then you come down real quick.

 

Then before you know it you’re subconsciously chasing the next shiny object, which you’ll justify the investment by convincing yourself it’ll turn your business around.

 

Well time for some cold hard truth – you can invest in EVERY tool out there, but the biggest thing holding your business back from success will NOT be having the latest tools, it will be …… (drum roll please)……………

 

TAH  – DAH!

 

YOU !

 

But before you sink into the chair and start wishing you’d never tried to become financially free, I have the antidote……

 

Oh look.. is that the time, sorry I have to go, but I promise I’ll tell you how to save yourself from SOS and STILL build your business, look out for my next article.

 

Until next time then……….

MYOB Journal week #1 A Little Help From My Friends | Mind Your Own Business

MYOB Journal week #1 A Little Help From My Friends | Mind Your Own Business

I’m still going to be in touch regularly with other great pieces of knowledge and tips to infotain (made up word) you, but from now on my MYOB (Mind Your Own Business) posts are going to be weekly. I’ll also share with you occasional videos on my site as well as videos and messages on my Twitter and FB pages, so I encourage you to link to my Twitter and my MBT  page on Facebook.

mind your own business

If you are serious about starting an online venture and want to follow along with this MYOB Journal please bookmark my MBT site using the link below, friend and follow me on Twitter and Facebook. here’s the links – go do it now;

MBT blog category making-money-online < http://bit.ly/mbtjournal >

Right, let’s get started into the detail, shall we? As I mentioned in the previous post, I have subscribed to the following;

http://bit.ly/1kmyob   

which is The ‘Online Marketing Classroom’.

Why this particular product Pete?

Well mainly because there was a lot of good reviews and comments online about both the product and the creators of the programme; Aidan Booth and Steve Clayton. I was particularly impressed with the depth of the content, tools, education, downloads, training sessions and numerous online strategies it is able to support.

start a small business in the UK

As one of my main intentions is to extend this series past a single online venture, into other online enterprises, the OMC package covers all the bases and even promises to expand its ‘footprint’ as it and it’s members grow.

 

Now, as I have said in past posts, you have to be prepared to invest time and money in your online ventures if you are serious about creating multiple income streams. Unlike many online coaching programmes and so-called guru’s and products online, this particular programme, I believe, is not only affordable but is well worth it’s value.

 

There are two options; a monthly subscription or a one time life membership. For the purposes of this series of articles and as a new venture, I decided to ‘think like a newbie’ so I chose the monthly subscription, now once the product has proven itself to be of great value – I will switch to the lifetime membership, which I intend to do from the profits in my new venture.

right attitude UK small business

I would recommend that strategy to anyone looking at starting or subscribing to a new plan / programme. You can always pay the extra for lifetime access once you know the programme is working and it’s for you.



 

So now I’ve signed up I need to get started with the training and the actions for next week – week #2, so check in next weekend and watch for the post subject MYOB (mind your own business) Journal week #1

How To Earn Extra Money in Affiliate Marketing While Still Having a Full-time Job?

The growth of the internet has created many online home business ideas. One such idea is affiliate marketing. This is promoting other people’s products or services in exchange for a percentage of any sales that are made. Your main task is to send traffic to the merchant site.

Affiliate marketing

The main benefits of this method of generating passive income are that it requires a small amount of capital to start and fits the pace of a person. It is an excellent way of making extra revenue while still continuing with your full-time job.

Affiliate marketing is a flexible means of income since one can choose any product or services that best suits him/her in terms of sales. You aren’t permanently embedded in one item that doesn’t sell. Marketers can dump such items at will and choose another one.

To become successful in affiliate marketing, you need to have the right tools. One should have a working PC or laptop, good internet connectivity, and excellent marketing skills. Marketing skills determine the number of sales one makes.
UK small business

The more the sales, the more the income one generates and vice versa. Article writing and blogging are the two main techniques employed in marketing. Blogging is more preferred by many as it is interactive. This gives the blogger higher chances of converting traffic into sales.

Choice of niche is essential for gaining success in affiliate marketing. Conduct research ensures the niche you settle for is profitable. The loyalty of your traffic matters in this form of online money making. Therefore provide them with quality content that they can’t find anywhere else. This will keep them engaged which will result in repeated business. Always give them a reason to come back to your site/blog.
Although affiliate marketing is an excellent way of making passive income, it requires a lot of patience. Gaining audience and brand isn’t a simple thing and will need hard work. If you adhere to the rules of marketing, you will get the ball rolling within a short time. You will be generating income on autopilot once you get the hang of affiliate marketing.
online home business ideas
You have to remember the choice of affiliate marketer or program determines how successful you will be in making money online.
An excellent example of a legitimate program is the Two Trap Greyhound System. It is a great program to help you earn extra income while having a full-time job.
