Online-Marketing, doing the work is so much easier – and more

Hi Online-Marketing, This past week two of my clients separately came to Santa Barbara for VIP days with me. In each case, we were following up on work we had done together over the previous six months. One is a man I first met in my other city, Santa Clarita. He’s an actor-writer-singer-voiceover creative who wants to achieve bigger goals in his career. When we began last spring he was paying someone to go to auditions for him and paying someone else to call agents and authors about doing voice over work. He thought of this as the “easy button” yet not getting any results. I told him he had to do the work; make the calls himself so others could hear his voice and attend the auditions in person so they could see and hear and get to know him. His results are massive now and he is being paid well to do the things he does best. The other client is an author who was having someone else do her marketing and even some of her writing. Now she is doing all of this herself, based on what I am teaching her and her results are outstanding. In both cases, they told me it was easier to do this work themselves because they were missing out on important opportunities. Are you willing to do the work when it comes to building your online business? Learn what you need to do and then do it. It’s truly that simple and continues to work for me. Yesterday I asked you a hypothetical question regarding setting up simple profiles on Twitter and Facebook for local business clients. It goes like this: If I were a local business owner and confided in you that I needed help setting up a Twitter account for my business, would you say yes? This happened to me in the summer of 2008 when I met a local chiropractor at a Home & Garden show and we began talking about our businesses. He leaned in and said he knew he should be on Twitter but didn’t know how. I offered to show him and he offered to pay me to do it for him instead. We shook hands and he became my fifth local business client. The going rate for only setting up Twitter and Facebook and posting three times a week is $99 a month. If … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, if I asked for your help with this would you say

Hi Online-Marketing, This morning I reached out to several local friends to see who wanted to go to the movies. Two said yes and we saw “Motherless Brooklyn” and thoroughly enjoyed it. But that isn’t what I wanted to ask you about. If I were a local business owner and confided in you that I needed help setting up a Twitter account for my business, would you say yes? This happened to me in the summer of 2008 when I met a local chiropractor at a Home & Garden show and we began talking about our businesses. He leaned in and said he knew he should be on Twitter but didn’t know how. I offered to show him and he offered to pay me to do it for him instead. We shook hands and he became my fifth local business client. The going rate for only setting up Twitter and Facebook and posting three times a week is $99 a month. If you do more for them your fee increases. Social Biz Box is $9 through Sunday and teaches you so much about doing this easily from your home computer. connieLoves.me/SocialBizBox What else will you need? My smart friends Ron Douglas and Alice Seba thought Twitter templates, worksheets, a planner, and checklists would be helpful. It’s called “Twitter Domination” and you can get a full month for only $5 here: connieLoves.me/Surprise Use Code FIVE to get in for $5 Yes, you may cancel after this month, but in December the templates are for LinkedIn so you may just want to stay. This is a top secret offer this weekend, so don’t share it with anyone just yet. It will cost you $14 ($9 for Social Biz Box and $5 for Twitter Domination) to get started right away. And, you may use everything for your own business as well as for all the clients you like. These two go together like chocolate and peanut butter or chocolate and just about anything else! ~ ~ ~ “Time Management Strategies for Entrepreneurs: How to Manage Your Time to Increase Your Bottom Line” is a FREE download.

Online-Marketing, what could you do today that would matter a year

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to My Community – I’m Here to Serve You with Your Entrepreneurship and Authorship Goals! My subject line today comes from Seth Godin’s latest post. When I started online almost fourteen years ago I knew that if I took small steps each day they would add up over time and build my business in a slow and steady way. Here I am almost five thousand days later, continuing to take small steps each day. I use a dynamic to-do list and I consider my day a success if I complete three or four items, delegate some items to others, and eliminate items that will not serve me today or over time. On this second day of November, with only fifty-eight days remaining in this decade please take a look at what I am sharing with you… “Time Management Strategies for Entrepreneurs: How to Manage Your Time to Increase Your Bottom Line” is a FREE download.

Alessandro Zamboni is my Italian friend who continues to share what he’s making money with online and he makes it simple to replicate. “Ugly Sweaters Empire” is a $17 product on creating ugly sweater designs to sell as print-on-demand on Amazon, eBay, and Etsy. connieLoves.me/UglySweatersEmpire Years ago I spent way too much money on a beautiful sweater at United Colors of Benetton, only to find out everyone but me thought it was an ugly sweater. This story has nothing at all to do with Alessandro’s product, but I thought it might be interesting to you. 😉 ~ ~ ~ Did you check out “Social Biz BOX”? For $9 today you can learn how to set up social media for yourself and/or for local businesses. My very first public speaking engagement was on how to use social media. It was in 2006 and I spoke to a group of business owners. I got several clients from this talk. Businesses have little interest in learning how to use social media and are willing to pay well for your help with simple postings and updates. In 2006 I came so close to making … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, making a judgment call and living with the

Hi Online-Marketing, On my podcast yesterday I spoke of a play during Game 7 of the World Series that almost changed the course of history. The home plate umpire called a player out for interference. The call was controversial and new fans of baseball like myself saw it as unfair, and we weren’t alone. It turns out that call is a “judgment call” and could not be reviewed. In that moment one team stood at the crossroads of success or defeat and it was only because of plays that occurred afterwards that they prevailed as the winners of the World Series. We all make judgment calls every day. And when we do we must also live with the consequences. Today I want you to think about this in regards to your future as an entrepreneur. What choices and decisions are you making that have the potential to change the course of your life? The umpire made his judgment call based upon years of experience in upholding a rule that he may or may not have believed was a fair one; are you learning and then implementing what you learn in a way that allows you to have the best judgment regarding your own situation? On this first day of November, with only fifty-nine days remaining in this decade please take a look at what I am sharing with you… April Lemarr is having a 40% off sale to celebrate, and it’s good on anything in her PLR shop.

April’s PLR is high quality and she has more than two hundred packages to choose from.

Online-Marketing, the winds slowed down and changed direction just

Hi Online-Marketing, I grew up trick-or-treating with my friends every year and can still remember the fun we had. Spending time together and wearing a carefully chosen costume was more important than the candy we received. And I still know lots of these people! We were afraid this year might be a disappointment to many children because of the fires and the power outages but the wind has shifted just in time and Halloween will go on as scheduled. Are you in the holiday mood yet, whether it’s for Halloween, US Thanksgiving, or something else? April Lemarr is having a 40% off sale to celebrate, and it’s good on anything in her PLR shop.

Online-Marketing, the package looked suspicious to me

Hi Online-Marketing, Yesterday I stopped by the store to pick up a few things. I’m in the habit of parking as far away from the entrance as possible to get some additional steps in, and as I walked towards the entrance I was aware of a black box, about the size of two shoe boxes tucked behind the trash can just outside the front door. Not wanting to get any closer I entered the store and asked for the manager. He went outside to investigate and when he came back inside I can’t believe what he said… “We are overrun with rats and the pest control company is placing those traps near every entrance. It’s nothing dangerous or to be afraid of.” Nothing to be afraid of?! Just how big are those rats?! That was my Halloween scare, for sure. Today is the last day of October and Halloween is celebrated in many places. We get at least a hundred trick-or-treaters and I’m ready with candy I do not like. Will you be in costume this evening or handing out candy? ~ ~ ~ Seven Spots Remaining at the Discounted Pricing You may have wanted to work closely with me during the past couple of years but couldn’t because of the cost or time commitment. I’ve put together a program I’m calling the “2020 Jump Start” that costs less than my Mentor program (I do still have one opening if you are interested) and requires less of a time commitment. This is what I’ve included: * Mentoring with me during December of 2019 – three private calls and email access throughout the entire month * My “Spring Jump Start” small group program to be held for ten weeks during March, April, and May of 2020 * My “Fall Jump Start” small group program to be held for ten weeks during September, October, and November of 2020 * Your choice of any TWO from my “Really Simple” series – Authority Blogging, Information Products, Affiliate Marketing, or Short Reports * All products I release on Warrior Plus between now and the end of 2020 (it will be a minimum of four) The value for what I am offering here is over $2500 USD. This “2020 Jump Start” is available to seven more people (eight spots have already been claimed) at a one time investment of $1295 or a two-pay of $695 twice, … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, the opportunities are there if you choose to take

Hi Online-Marketing, The idea of earning a solid and sustainable income from your home computer is one I will never take for granted. These days many people are doing this easily but when I got started it wasn’t that way. This morning I was reading an article entitled “Middle Age and the Art of Self-Renewal” and it details the life of education reformer Elizabeth Peabody. She was the first woman to be allowed into the Boston public library in the late 1820s, and this permission was rescinded a month later. We must take full advantage of all opportunities that are presented to us if they are ones that will be life changing for us and our families. I have pinned this article to the top of my Twitter feed: Tweets by ConnieGreen I do hope you will be joining me tomorrow for Angela Wills’ latest training. It’s her “Ideas to Offers” workshop and includes a workbook and the replay, whether you’re able to attend live or not. Angela has a unique approach to business and is building her online empire in a way that you will be able to emulate. I’ll see you there! connieLoves.me/AngelaSpecial ~ ~ ~ Did you check out “Social Biz BOX”? For $9 today you can learn how to set up social media for yourself and/or for local businesses.

Online-Marketing, if you only have a few hours each week

Hi Online-Marketing, Thank You for Being Here Today – I Appreciate You and Want to Get to Know You! In my business I wear several different hats; I’m an author, an entrepreneur, a marketing strategist, and a mentor. In each instance I find myself in the position of being a curator. I curate stories for my books, ideas for my products and courses, products and information to make the best recommendations, and proven strategies for my students, clients, and mentees. For every product or training I promote to you, at least a hundred have crossed my desk or come into my virtual field of vision. When you see half a dozen people promoting the same product or training you know it is something that made an impression on us in terms of quality, reliability, and potential impact for the online world. Today I am proud to bring you “Social Biz Box” from Matt and John Rhodes… connieLoves.me/SocialBizBox They were kind enough to offer me a review copy a few days ago and I am almost finished going through everything. For less than ten dollars you can learn today what I took over a year of my time to learn a decade ago, and that is how to make excellent money part-time by helping local businesses with social media, and Facebook specifically. I make no secret about my feelings on Facebook; I believe people who want to earn income online are spending far too much time there and convincing themselves they are doing business. But this is different. Did you know I still market on Facebook for two dentists, a hair stylist, and a chiropractor? But I no longer do it myself. It’s all done by a virtual assistant who only does that for me and three other entrepreneurs. Learn the simple steps to get started and you will be in business within two weeks or less. connieLoves.me/SocialBizBox Local business owners have no time and little interest in doing this for themselves and you can help them make the phone ring in a couple of hours each week and earn good money in the process. My recommendation if you are brand now to this income model: learn everything they are teaching you here about Facebook and Instagram advertising, but do not include that in your list of offerings for the first three months. Offer everything else as you build up to … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, if someone had promised me this I would have

Hi Online-Marketing, Thank You for Hitting Reply to Introduce Yourself – I Appreciate You and Want to Get to Know You! It took me one full year to create my first information product. That breaks down to about ten months in coming up with the idea and two months figuring out how to do it. If someone would have promised me I could come up with an idea that would sell, and create it as a product for sale online in seven days, I would have probably laughed out loud at such a crazy notion. Through midnight, when the price increases significantly you can pick up this training for $9.95. That’s right, for less than ten dollars you’re in business. And that’s just the beginning! connieLoves.me/EvergreenProductCreation No list? No problem. Create your first, or next product and I will be your first affiliate. ~ ~ ~ Want an idea for this?

This could be used to create a new information product for you to sell on its own, or as a bonus for something else you will offer, or even to add to a membership site. It’s only $9.95 through tomorrow at: connieLoves.me/AprilSpecial ~ ~ ~ This evening at 7 pm ET I’m hosting another live webinar for my latest training, “Syndication Optimization” and you won’t want to miss it.

Online-Marketing, start your week off by making it all more simple

Hi Online-Marketing, Thank You for Including Yourself in My Community – I’m Here to Serve You! I often say that becoming successful as an online entrepreneur is simple, but it isn’t easy unless you follow through consistently. And knowing how to keep everything simple moves you forward quickly. Logically then, you want to choose the simplest business models and make efforts towards them as often as possible. Does this make sense? For example, I chose the simple model of content creation when I started in 2006. I kept it simple and did it consistently, seldom missing a week. Over time this practice became easier because of my consistency. It didn’t take long for me to become very profitable as a result. Choose your ONE thing, do it almost every day, learn a little more, and stick with it. As long as something is for sale your business will prosper. Here are some ideas for you… This evening at 7 pm ET I’m hosting another live training for my latest training, “Syndication Optimization” and you won’t want to miss it.
