Update – June 5th, 2013


It is hard to believe that I actually posted this the first time back in 2009. Wow! Holy Smokes Batman. A lot of things have changed since then, but one of them has not and that is Good Copy is key to your success online. More so now than ever! Thanks Alex Jeffreys for reminding me of this. If you are going to spend any time at all on making money online, spend it practicing writing good copy. That is the Key to online success period. Everything else is a distant second. And get this, you can learn to write good copy that sells. Heck if you have been a reader of mine for any length of time you know that I am freaking dyslexic, can’t spell for crap, and have ADD to boot. So, no excuses OK? If I can do it, you can do it!  By the way, I have left this in its original form. The Start On Monday book is being re-done and will be available soon!

If you want to improve your Profits, then here are 3 books and 1 report from Google that I am making available to your for Free. You should download and read them right away. These are my gift to you at absolutely no charge. You do not have to pay anything, nor sign up for another list. And I am also going to show you one of the books that you can get for free for 14 days read it, use it to make money, and if you don’t like it, you don’t have to pay for it. But if you do like it, you only pay for it after you have read it. How is that for an Author that thinks his material is good? This guy is one of my favorites and you will soon see why. The other 3 books and Report is yours for free forever.

The technique of giving things away is called a reverse risk factor and it is very effective as you can imagine but, most people are afraid to use it. Which is good because it makes it even more effective for those that do.

Why Am I Giving These To You?

The reason why I am giving them to you is because I know that no matter where you are in your Business, they can have a huge impact on your profitability. Plus, it makes me feel good that I can give something of really high value that most people have never heard of before that can dramatically improve their life for the better. It is a complete kick in the pants. Plus, it is good Karma.

If you are an old hat at the online game, or are just starting out, these can help you immensely. They will even help you in your Brick and Mortar business as well. You don’t have to sign up for an email list or anything as I mentioned. How is that for a change? Just click on them and save them and you can start reading them right away. They are all in PDF format except for the last one.

If you are trying to sell anything and have to write copy, Scientific Advertising by Claude Hopkins is a must read. It will dispel the myth about long copy that I see ignorantly bandied about these days. It shows you why it is good and how personal stories focused on your niche can really help sales. The things that he talks about in this book still work today. Most people don’t have a clue as to who he is or use his techniques. Now you don’t have to be one of them.

Measuring Success – The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same

Measuring Success

It has been awhile since we have looked at the basics of marketing and measurements.  As Peter Drucker said, “What’s measured improves”  and so it goes.

It does not matter if you are measuring SEO/SEM, or direct sales, or how many visitors you have to your site,  the fact that you are measuring it can really help.

What we have in a lot of cases is an in-depth dashboard that allows you to see what is going on every single day in nearly every metric we have in our business.

Are you doing this?  Do you even know what is going on in your business as far as daily cash flow, visitors, customers, amount per sale, profit per visit?  How about your SEO results?  Or your advertising results?

If not, you really need to do this asap. I even if it is nothing more than an excel spreadsheet.  We will be examining some ways to build your own dashboard for your business so you can see exactly what is going on.

What is amazing is that you would not think of getting in your car and driving it if your dashboard was a complete blank and you did not know how much gas you had or how fast you were going or being able to tell what gear you were in…. But almost every business I know of does this with their business. They do not have a real time dashboard allowing them to know exactly what is going on in their business.

We are going to help you take care of that here shortly.

Here is one of the first free tools that you can start using to help you.

Dashboard Spy.  Good resource to get you going.

How To Drasticaly Increase Your Bottom Line With Contact

Did you know that on average that it takes a bare minimum of about 7 times before she notices your ad or your presence? And then it can take on average 7 more times to be exposed to your product or service before she buys something for you?

So, that being said, what are you doing to repeatedly get in front of these potential customers and clients? Anything? Anything at all?

Profit Consultant 1st SuccessThis is important. You know why? Because the lifetime value of a customer can easily be dozens of times the initial purchase. One of my first mentors sold a $19 product and would pay out $36 to an affiliate for the sale. Why? Because he would make on average $834 from that customer in 2 years. That is profit, not gross. But, the only way you can do this is to keep in constant contact with your customers and by adding value to them.

Well, one of the ways you can get more value to and from your customer is through an auto-responder on your site. I have one up there in the right hand corner. You sign up and I give away some of my best info for free. No charge, nothing. And actually one of the best ways to do this is to give away a free report or truly valuable information about the problems your product or service solves.

Just in case you do not know what an Auto-Responder is, it automatically delivers emails in a series or as a news letter to people that sign up for it.

Do you have one on your site? If not, you need to get one! The service that I use has a 30 free trial! And as most of my regular readers know, I don’t use things that don’t work and this works better than iContact, AWeber and even MailChimp. Not only that, but the cost can be 1/10th of these others. Click Here to get your free 30 day trial. Yes, I am an affiliate of these guys and if you end up liking it and using it, I will make a couple of bucks.

But, I do eat my own dog food and would not be recommending it if it was not something that I would use. Try it out and let me know. Also, sign up for A Day In The Life and I will show you how to use your auto-responder to more effectively market your product and services.

Let me know how you like it.

Have a profitable day.
Cheers,
Andrew

The Simple Answer To Making More Money

How You Can Make More Money Starting Right Now

I hardly ever login to Linkedin and only do Facebook about once a week if that.  Plus, I  have been keeping my Twitter to a minimum these days which is a whole other blog post, but in my quarterly login to Linkedin, I came across one of what I think is one of the core truths about making money.

The first time I heard something similar, it stopped me in my tracks and here is what I distilled that rather shocking moment down to.

“The Key to being successful is to become great at what you are good at, not becoming mediocre at what you do poorly”- Andrew Anderson

And that my friend is pretty much the secret to making money in a nut shell.

If you every really want to get ahead, you need to figure out what you are good at and say to heck with the rest. Become the best that you can be at it.

Let people that love to do what you hate do it for you.  If you can pay someone to do laundry and it costs you less or even the same as what you love to do, let them do it.

Same goes with Yard work, and everything else.

When you do things you don’t like, you are not going to do them as fast or as well and it takes time from practicing and getting good at what will truly make you money.  The mind set may be foriegn to you, but it works.

When someone tells me they have a maid or domestic help, I think what a smart cookie. I used to think they were lazy or pretentious.  Shows you how truly ignorant I was.  They were actually smart and had a lot more money and free time than I did.  But I eventually figured it out.

Now you can too.

Cheers,
Andrew Anderson

Social Media Mangers – Schmedia Managers

Social Media Mangers – Schmedia Managers

twitter blue gloss

OK, having a Social Media Manger seems to be in Vogue these days.  I have seen the ads for some of them with absolutely ludicrous requirements.  I know I have been laughing my ass off just reading the want ads for them and you can bet Gary Vaynerchuk is as well.  I want to share some of the joy with you here.

First off, the biggy seems to be a Journalism Degree or even better yet an MBA.  Really?  How or why that one is relevant is beyond me and actually it is totally irrelevant as I will show you.

What they should be asking is, do you have the ability to communicate in 140 characters or less and do you send out a minimum of 1,000 to 5,000 texts a month? This one is obvious as Twitter is a huge part of social media.

Here at two sample out takes from ads that are laughable.  These are from a REAL ads… LOL

Completion of an advanced degree (e.g. MA, MPH, MJ, MBA) and six (6) or more years of relevant experience

* 7+ years traditional media experience working for industry-leading company with significant media budgets in the area of digital marketing.

Wow, since Twitter has only been around for 3 years and Facebook did not really get going until about 2007 tell me how you pull off that 6 or more years of relevant experience ?   This is not traditional media either. Can you say Clueless?

Is The Secret To Profitability To Be Intelligently Lazy? Are you taking the Red Pill or the Green one?

RedorGreen

This is an update of a post I did awhile ago… very relevant for today thought don’t you think?

Could it be that the real secret to profitability is to be Intelligently Lazy?  Could it really be the more Intelligently Lazy you, are the wealthier you become? And what about Alligators?

Alligator

Well, like a lot of revelations, this one popped up rather unexpectedly right after I took a Green Pill this morning.

With this revelation came a whole breadth of understanding like revelations often do.  Point in fact, one of those revelations is I can tell you are Intelligently Lazy too because you are here reading this.

Hopefully, if I communicate this to you correctly, you are going to want to become the laziest person you know.

You may not know it yet, but I am actually giving you quite a compliment.  Let me explain to you why, by giving you two old adages you may have heard before.

  • Most people are too busy making a living to ever become wealthy
  • Most people are too busy doing urgent things, rather than important ones

This is because, as the old saying goes, it is hard to drain the swamp when you are up to your ass in alligators.
