James Holmes Presentation for Contact List Builder

Join me on Saturday January 20, 2012 as I am Janet Legere and Don Legere’s guest presenter at their weekly ‘Content List Builder’ live web conference. I will be presenting on one of my favorite topics and core tenants of my business model… multiple income streams and automated daily income.

I have been a previous guest on Janet’s conference and you can watch the video of my past presentation here. I love interacting with the amazing community of marketers at Contact List Builder and I am certain that you will also.

The Agenda:

My intention is to share the wisdom of creating multiple automated sales funnels to create daily income online. I will provide you with the ‘why’ behind this business model and the ‘how’ to set everything up and make it work for you.

Why pursue a multiple income streams model?
What are the keys to creating multiple stream income streams?
How to structure your multiple streams properly?
What resources so you need to make it EASY?
Now that you have them what do you do with them?
How to make it work systematically?
In addition, I am going to completely destroy a popular myth that states; “The man (or woman) that chases two rabbits catches none.” I will prove to you that this is a completely false statement. (Click the title link to read the Complete post)

Do You Think it is Hard to Make Money Online?

I interact daily with dozens of people all driven by a common goal to make money online and change their lives in meaningful ways. Among the most commonly asked questions are those focused on whether or not it is difficult to make money online. This is understandable because the Internet can be a very confusing place with so many promises of easy riches and push button profits, it is easy to see why people become discouraged when these programs fail to produce results for the great majority of people who try.

The key to succeeding online is approaching your business objectives with the proper mindset, one that allows you to see the possibilities and determine a path that will lead to your success. There is a transition must be made to become a successful online business owner… a transition I call going from ‘e to E.’

What is e to E?

Understanding the difference between how e = employees and E = Entrepreneurs are paid is a critical piece of the success formula, failure to understand this foundational concept will lead to discouragement and frustration on your journey. Let me go one step further, the lack of understanding of the transition from e to E is responsible for the failure of more budding entrepreneurs than any other single factor.

How are e = employees compensated?

employees are compensated by exchanging time for money, which is usually predetermined based on an hourly rate or salary.

How are E = Entrepreneurs compensated?

Entrepreneurs are compensated as a derivative the problems they solve and/or the value they provide to the marketplace. Typically, the level (or amount) of compensation is proportionate to the size of the problems solved or sheer amount of value provided. Isn’t that a beautiful thing?

Based on this truth, you can understand why you must avoid logging hours when you launch your new business. Forget about the hours you spend and understand that you will likely be under compensated for a period of time. If you refuse to quit you will eventually reach a tipping point and begin to earn based on a whole new set of guidelines. Once you have broken through to the entrepreneurial standard you will earn based on your true worth and not as a result of the number of hours you work.

What do you mean by hard?

Understanding the degree to which you are willing to sacrifice to achieve your dreams is another critical piece of the success formula. I have always believed that the definition of ‘hard’ is an individual one and is directly tied to your mindset. So what if it is hard…what matter is whether or not your dream worth it to you.

Here is a short video that might change the way you see your world and redefine the meaning of the word hard in your life. This video changed me, I already possessed a strong mindset toward self-sacrifice and hard work… yet this still caused a change in my perception of challenges.

Get a Free Worldpress Blog Make Money Referring Others

I love Wordpress blogs, which probably explains why I have a network of nearly 20 site across a variety of carefully selected niches. I often speak with newer marketers that are confused about how to get started with a self hosted blog and resort to free blogs on Blogger or other blog platforms. I have several blogs on Blogger also but the bottom-line is that if Google (the owner of Blogger) feels that your content violates their evolving terms of service, your content and all of your hard work can disappear overnight. No warning just removed… it has happened to a few people I know.

If you are an internet marketer or home-based business professional a self-hosted Wordpress blog should be the hub of all of your online activities. Considering the importance of your blog you must take due care when selecting a blog platform and setting up your site. Keep in mind that your prospect will complete a websearch on your name while completing their due dilegence on you prior to joining your business or buying a product from you… what wil they find?

Podcast Episode 105: How to Build Your Subscriber List with Relative Ease

Join me today and I will show you how to build a responsive subscriber list with relative ease. The key is knowing the best tools and even more importantly – how to use them.

List Building Doesn’t Have to be Difficult New and intermediate marketers operate under a false impression that the only way to build a list is to have a visitor opt into a subscriber form on your website or blog. Unfortunately this leads to a lack of action because they get stuck either because they don’t know how to put a web form on their site or they put the form on their site and do nothing more.

The long-term impact on the business of these marketers is a lack of sales. The longer you go without an organized and consistent list building strategy, the more difficult it will be for you to begin making real money online. If you read this blog post carefully and take immediate action, you will be on your way to building a responsive list with relative ease.

Podcast Episode #103: Effective List Building Session One

I invite you to join me Wednesday June 30th, I will begin a new series of podcast on the “Internet Business Blueprint” on Blog Talk Radio. This series is titled “Effective List Building” and it will be presented in 10 episodes.

List building is a crucial piece of the success puzzle when it comes to creating a successful Internet marketing business. The bottom line is clear, you need a list regardless of which business model you choose; information product marketing, affiliate marketing, direct sales or any other the other handful of variant models you have to choose from. The bottom line is to be successful you must place your message in front of your market with consistently.

There are a variety of channels that you can use to deliver your message, but few are more effective than a responsive double opt in subscriber list of buyers who already know you, like you and most importantly have grown to trust you. Once you have a subscriber list in place, you should plan to earn one dollar for every name on your list each month. Then if your desire is to make more money simply grow a bigger list.
