As you may have seen, there’s a little government shutdown going on in the United States. Nearly a million people are out of work, some of whom will never be paid. Could an online business be the answer to the government shutdown? Can an email list and some marketing skills save a family from financial meltdown? Is it possible that something this simple could actually get people through their darkest hour? That’s what happened for Wayne. And I share his story in today’s episode.
We surveyed hundreds of people last year asking them this simple question: What’s the hardest part about running your online business The most common answer…growing my email list! Can you relate? Probably…and you’re just like the 77% of people who said that. So, what is holding you back? Today, I’ll share the #1 thing that holds most people back from growing their list.
One of the things that I love about affiliate marketing is that you can be successful at it in many different ways. Some people are amazing at converting podcast listeners into buyers. Others rely on product reviews. Others are outstanding copywriters. The best, however, combine methods to be massively successful.
I’ll cut right the heart of this message:
You do not need an email list to be successful with affiliate marketing. There I said it, flat out.
In fact, I made more than $100,000 in 18 months…with less than 300 people on my list.
I heard Andy Stanley tell a story once about buying paper cutters. And in that story, Andy taught a principle that has completely changed my business – “Do for one what you wish you could do for many.” In today’s video, I share that story from Andy Stanley, as well as how you can apply this principle in your life to achieve greater success!
Last week, I wrote a post entitled, Why I’m Not Sharing My 2019 Goals This Year. I shared that research shows that we shouldn’t share our goals publicly as we’re less likely to achieve them. But who SHOULD we be sharing them with? In today’s episode, I’ll share what has and what hasn’t worked for me.
I still remember the horror, the helplessness, and the hatred I had in my heart. I’d just been fired from a job I hated but felt that I needed to keep. We’d just moved into a new home, with a new mortgage and our six-month-old daughter was asleep upstairs.
My first reaction was panic. I was absolutely terrified. New dad, new house, single income.
My next emotion was helplessness. I literally had no idea what to do. Sure, I hated my job. In fact, just the night before, my wife Tara essentially told me I needed to find a new job…or else.
