Online-Marketing, there may be a blueprint after all

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to You if You’re New to My Community – You’re in the Right Place! This weekend I hosted a private Retreat for two of my clients here in Santa Barbara. The weather was nearly perfect (some high winds passing through) and we were all satisfied with what we were able to accomplish during our three days together. It turns out there may be a formula, or at least a blueprint for online entrepreneurship after all. My clients live in a rural area in New Jersey now, after spending most of their married life in Las Vegas. They both retired during 2012 at the age of 62. They were hoping to live off the retirement investments they had been making over the previous thirty years. But there was one problem…the Great Recession of 2008 had taken its toll and their savings had dwindled down to next to nothing. In 2014 they relocated to New Jersey to live with their son and daughter-in-law and started working as substitute teachers. This was exhausting and they found the schools to be filled with “clicks” and the union to be less than honorable. I had similar experiences while working as a teacher for twenty years in Los Angeles. Last year they came to me to learn how to earn an income online. They work hard and have created half a dozen products, two courses, and a membership site in their niche. We took a closer look at what it takes to get started as an online entrepreneur and how to ramp up your earnings once you have laid the foundation. 1) What’s for sale? Ask yourself this question every day. Do not let a month go by without adding a new product in your business. 2) Use PLR (private label rights) content to create your first, or next products. I’m doing that this month and continue to find this to be the fastest way for me to add new products to my inventory. These are my recommendations today: From Justin Popovic – connieLoves.me/JustinSpecial ($10 and ends at midnight) From April Lemarr – connieLoves.me/AprilSpecial ($9.95 until Wednesday with Code VIDEO) 3) Connecting with others is crucial to our success online. We must choose a few people to connect with and let it build to more over time. I recommended Angela Wills to my clients and she has a brand new live training coming … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, this may not be a big deal to you, but on the

Hi Online-Marketing, This morning I wrote and published a 716 word blog post in less than an hour. It’s titled “How to Write an Awesome Blog Post” and you may read it here: How to Write an Awesome Blog Post This is a big deal for me each time I do it because I was not a writer when I started my online business 13 years ago. Instead, I was someone who wanted to write (and do many other things as well) but who seldom took action. When I did follow through there wasn’t much chance I would do it consistently. Can you relate? No one had ever told me that life was so much easier, lucrative, and fun (my friend Joe Polish uses the acronym E.L.F. for these three words) when you make a choice, take action, and then follow through. Of course, there is more to it than this, but it’s the starting point for great success, personally and professionally. = = = Special Pricing for 5 More People – ends at midnight “Really Simple Authority Blogging” comprehensive course will make a difference in how you succeed with blogging and other writing, even for a book.

Online-Marketing, telling it like it is – is there any other way?

Hi Online-Marketing, This has been a most interesting day, so far. Someone asked me about a personal issue and I emailed them back with the details. When they commented back that I sure was willing to “tell it like it is” my thought was “is there any other way?” We are ordinary human beings working to live an extraordinary experience and lifestyle. We’re all going to skin our knees once in awhile. What makes us super human is our willingness to keep at it with consistency and persistence. Most people don’t do this. I’m in summer mode and enjoying lots of swimming this summer. I’m hoping to swim in the local lake with my grandkids tomorrow. = = = April Lemarr has a July Independence Daily Special!

Online-Marketing, the truth about independence and freedom as an

Hi Online-Marketing, Yesterday my Canadian friends celebrated Canada Day and on Thursday the States celebrate Independence Day. You read and hear a lot about the wonderful world of online entrepreneurship and how it enables us to work from anywhere and create the life we choose. Hold on a minute…there’s more to the story. Much more. Before you can enjoy this lifestyle most will only dream of you must engage in something few are willing to fully embrace. Hard work. Diligence. Consistency. Perseverance. There’s more, but this is an excellent start. I realized within a few months of coming online that I would succeed simply because I was one of a select group of people willing take action on what I was learning. I was both saddened and thrilled when I figured this out. Then I got busy taking action so that I could live this “internet lifestyle.” I even wrote a book about it. Will you be one of the select few? I am most proud of my blogs and other writing. This is the area that continues to define me and to increase my income. Blogging led to my first book in 2010 and just a few weeks ago I published my 21st book. My “Really Simple Authority Blogging” comprehensive course will make a difference in how you approach and succeed with blogging and other writing. Creating an “authority blog” is worth your time and effort, both personally and financially. For the next 8 people I’ve slashed the investment from $499 to $99 at: [Coupon Code AUTHORITY Gives You 80% Off] Email me today if you have questions about how this course will make your business grow and shift your results during the remainder of 2019. = = = One last chance to join Visionary Business School – new payment plan Half a dozen people came aboard through me last week and another 10 or so wrote to tell me they wanted to work with Ryan Eliason and with me but needed a payment plan.

Online-Marketing, as we embark on a new journey to our chosen

Hi Online-Marketing, With the first half of 2019 now just a reflection in the rear view mirror, I sincerely hope you are ready to make waves for yourself during the third and fourth quarters of the year. We get to choose our destination and that is why this is exactly where we need to be in our life’s journey. I took time last night and this morning to review the goals I have completed, those I have delegated, and to give one last thought to the goals I’ve decided to let go, at least for now. It’s time to surge forward with no hesitation as to what awaits us, no regrets over what was left undone, and with full enthusiasm for this blessing and opportunity that is ours as online entrepreneurs. What is your goal and destination for the remainder of 2019? I would love to hear about it from you. Hit “reply” to share with me. I am most proud of my blogs and other writing. This is the area that continues to define me and to increase my income. Blogging led to my first book in 2010 and just a few weeks ago I published my 21st book. My “Really Simple Authority Blogging” comprehensive course will make a difference in how you approach and succeed with blogging and other writing.

Online-Marketing, we’re on the eve of something big – are you ready

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to You If You Are New to My Community! I was reading this afternoon and came upon a quote from the late, great Steve Jobs that goes like this… “Do not try to do everything. Do one thing well.” Does that ring as true for you as it does for me? I tend to spend time with people who have decades more business experience than I do and significantly more grey matter, but while I do not know my astrocytes from my oligodendrocytes I do know this: Becoming a specialist as an entrepreneur will give you satisfaction and a bottom line that far surpasses that of generalists. Start with a focus on the ONE thing that is interesting and excites you. For me this was eBook writing, publishing, and marketing when I was new online in ’06. Email me with your ideas and I’ll be happy to brainstorm with you.

Online-Marketing, someone in the audience laughed…and my world

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to You If You Are New to My Community! It was June of 2009 and I was in Minneapolis to speak at a large marketing conference. I was pacing back and forth backstage and then the host introduced me. I quickly took the stage, smiled into the audience, and hoped no one could tell how afraid I was on that day. I introduced myself and began my presentation. My heart was beating out of my chest as I moved through the first few slides. Then it happened. Something I had said made a person in the audience laugh. I kind of answered that laugh with another comment and more people were laughing. I moved on to the next slide and was in control. They thought I was funny! At that moment everything changed and I was no longer nervous or afraid. As I looked out into the sea of faces I reminded myself to cherish that moment. This is what I said to myself: “You want to be an effective public speaker. Your goal is to share your message with as many people as possible. You want to grace the stage with your presence and enjoy every moment. This is exactly what that feels like, Connie, so remember this moment forever.” I sold more than any of the other speakers that weekend. By having fun with my presentation and with the audience members I had catapulted myself to new heights and my world expanded exponentially. I now speak regularly to people from many walks of life on several topics I am considered to be an expert in. I have also hosted more than twenty live events of my own. It all began when one person laughed and I responded. You can do this. Becoming a public speaker is fun and lucrative. Start with this content from April Lemarr: connieLoves.me/PublicSpeakingFun Public Speaking is One of the Biggest Fears… July is “Freedom from the Fear of Speaking” month… So why not teach it to others while you are learning to be a speaker? April has a brand new PLR (private label rights) content package on this topic and I love what she has created for us to share and sell. connieLoves.me/PublicSpeakingFun You’ll receive: * 21 page eBook, broken down into topics * 5 sections that talk about the following: * 5 Reasons to Inject Fun into Your Public Speaking … {…continue reading…}

Online-Marketing, are you taking full advantage of summer

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to You If You Are New to My Community! The first summer I was online (2006) I was taking an online course on blogging from someone I still know today. I also spent several hours each day reading, listening to audios, and writing for my blogs. Yes, I was busy with what I thought of as summer school and never thought to complain about not having more free time to spend on typical summer activities. Why? Because my investment of time and money that summer catapulted me to the next level of income by the fall. I was willing to forego many things during that time so I could enjoy greater life experiences later on. That turned out to be a wise decision on my part and it’s what I now teach those in my mentor program and in my ongoing training courses. = = = Are You in My Dotcom Jump Start Training Course? If so, we have a Bonus webinar training tomorrow at noon ET.

Online-Marketing, how may I serve you today…and in the future?

Hi Online-Marketing, Welcome to You If You Are New to My Community! During my second year online I had the good fortune to connect with Joe Polish. Little did I know then that two years later I would go on to win a contest he had inspired years earlier. It’s called the “Better Your Best” marketing in excellence award and I took the 25K first prize in November of 2009. This contest continues to exist. This is what Joe said recently I want to share with you… “Your number one job as a business owner and as a marketer is to build trust and rapport. We live in a world where people want to connect with someone they can believe in. There are so many options and so many choices. “In order to position yourself, you have to develop a level of trust. “Your job is to establish that trust and rapport. No one becomes a great long-term marketer and business owner without first learning how to connect with other people on a deep level.” = = = Stuck with a Creative or Business Idea? Donald Miller, author of “Building a Story Brand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen (connieloves.me/StoryBrand) tells us to ask ourselves the question “What if?” and then brainstorm your ideas on paper or your favorite way of recording what you think about. This works for me. = = = On Running the “Solo Marathon” of Entrepreneurship… This is what Seth Godin said today: The solo marathon = = = When Do You Need Help with Public Speaking? Justin Popovic shared his ideas with me and I have added to the list: * When you’re asked to speak at a wedding, Rotary meeting, or your child’s school event * Preparing for a sales conversation – online or in person * When you need more confidence in front of people – one person or many * Speaking in front of a group of your peers – at a party or other gathering * When you want to share a story with others and make a relevant point * Those times when you need to address an issue with a friend or family member * When you are invited to speak at a live marketing event for the first time The last one happened to me in 2007 and I was not prepared. In January of 2019 I … {…continue reading…}
