He Got SKILLS! High Income Skills… What are they?

What differentiates the High Income earners in the online marketing world, from those who make little or no income from their online ventures?

We all have 24 hours in a day, so then we need to look at what we do with those hourse.

Basically it all boils down to the ACTIVITIES we do when working on our business. What Activities are you doing or not doing that needs changed or improved?

There are THREE Skills you need to master if you want to earn a High Income.

#1. Lead Generation. If you’re in business you need potential customers (Leads) which convert into customers, which is how your earn income.

#2. Sales. If the leads show up and you don’t tell them about your product / service, OR you say the wrong things, you’re going to miss out on sales. Remember, Sales is how you earn income.

#3. Copy-writing. Communication is key. Learning how to communicate your message is vital to getting your information across in a manner that is clear, concise, understandable and relatable. Communicating your message is what generates >> #1 Leads!!

Re-framing a question or changing words can transform how you perceive the message, which in turn is vital to making those sales.

There is nothing new under the sun in Sales. The skills we develop come from those who have mastered those skills themselves and passed them on to those who desire to learn. We just have to practice and APPLY what we learn in our own businesses and personal situations.

Grow A Successful Online Business Using Jay Abraham’s 3 Pillars Of Revenue

Jay Abrahams 3 Pillars of Revenue explained in plain language.  Use them to start and grow a profitable online business.

Jay Abraham is an acclaimed American business executive, author and conference speaker, who is listed by Forbes as one of the Top 5 executive coaches in the US. He is the founder and CEO of the Abraham Group, a marketing consultant firm focused on providing growth strategies to businesses.

His work includes developing strategies for direct response marketing amoung which is his concept he calls The 3 Pillars Of Revenue.”

Not only does he used them himself, but he helps other businesses use them as well with the best of success as a result.

So what are The 3 Pillars Of Revenue?”

The 3 Pillars Of Revenue

  • 1. Acquire (and Increase) Customers
  • 2. Continue Doing Business With Those Same Customers
  • 3. Sell High-Ticket Items

When looking at different types of online businesses, make sure they check all the boxes of the 3 Pillars, if you want to be successful.

So let’s examine these Pillars a bit more closely.

1. Acquire (and increase) Customers

While this may seem simple to do it’s often the hardest. Knowing how to market your products/services requires a particular knowledge and skill set. Don’t ignore acquiring those skills. Realizing you have to spend money to make money is a necessity. Advertising costs money and/or time but is extremely important if you want to get your business and product known to the public.

2. Continue Doing Business With Those Same Customers

Repeat business. Consider the cost of acquiring just one customer. The profit you make off that first sale doesn’t even cover the cost of acquiring them as a customer. You need each and every customer to come back and buy more from you. That’s where your break even lies. If they return multiple times you can turn a profit. Great products and/or services and above average customer service will establish trust and respect and a higher liklihood of repeat business.

3. Sell High-Ticket Items

A high ticket product or service that provides higher value to a customer is important to the profitability of your business. For example, let’s say you sell wood stoves. A customer may want a small wood stove that costs $200. You sell them that but then they need stove pipe and flashing for the roof and a chimney stack. Once this sale is made, that’s it. You take your profit and say bye, bye to the customer. BUT, what if you offer an annual wood delivery and chimney cleaning service for $2,000? You could even break the price up into quarterly or monthly payments with interest. That’s a high ticket sale WITH repeat business (and potential interest)! Always have higher value items to sell that will complement or complete the sale.

WHEN ALL 3 PILLARS ARE PRESENT, YOU HAVE THE RECIPE FOR SUCCESS!

Legendary Marketer, in their 15 Day Business Builder Challenge, goes into details in their training on these 3 Pillars.. definitely worth checking out!)

So that’s all for today. Check back with NetworkerZilla for more articles and tips on how to build any successful online businesses!

This is Why Poor People Stay Poor, and Rich People Stay Rich (and how you can change that for yourself)

We know there are things we need to learn if we want to build successful businesses and make lots of money. We learn about different tools to use and how to use them.

But did you know that you also need to learn “how to” build a success filled ‘Brain’?

Most of us are programmed to be unsuccessful. Crazy right?

We are conditioned from a very young age with certain beliefs about money and success. We don’t even know it. Most of those beliefs are untrue but that’s not our fault. It’s passed down by parents, teachers, peers and practically everyone you know. From generation to generation. And they don’t know they’ve been programmed negatively either.

So, Do You Know What You Think About Money?? How Do You Change Your Thinking So You Can Succeed?

If you’ve grown up hearing “We can’t afford that”, or, “That costs too much”, or, “There’s too much month at the end of the money”, THAT right there is part of the negative programming!

It’s a subconscious “want” mentality. It creates negative unconscious programming and affects our every decision around money, which of course, percolates down to how you handle your money, how you spend and save money, and your attitude towards money in general.

Our financial attitude about money usually holds us back from becoming financially free… but thankfully that can change!

In this VIDEO, Dr. Bruce Lipton Explains HOW WE ARE PROGRAMMED AT BIRTH. It’s very eye opening!

He says.. “Just look at your life and ask, where am I struggling? Inevitably there’s a program in your subconscious that does not support that destination you’ve been looking for. Anything you struggle with, work hard at, put a lot of effort into making happen (why you are working so hard), inevitably you have a program that doesn’t support that and you’re trying to overwrite that program.”

Dr. Lipton then goes on to explain a couple of steps you can take to change your programming. 1. Hypnosis, which is the first 7 years of life, and 2. REPETITION. PRACTICE to instill ‘new programming’

Since the subconscious mind learns in those two basic ways, you need to develop ‘New Programs’. If you missed the boat on the productive programming in the first 7 years of your life, then you have to resort to Repetition and Practice.

What do you Practice and Repeat? You practice NOT repeating negative thoughts and Repeating positive, affirmative ones. For example: Instead of thinking “I can’t affortd that”, think “How can I afford that?” You mind will immediately go to work to figure out how to do that something.

Over time the helpful, positive, affirmative thought will comes naturally and will overwrite the negative attitudes. It becomes part of the subconscious. Fake it till you make it is a good way to put your new plan into action

You might not feel it’s true, but by repetition you’re talking to your Subconscious. If your subconscious gets told something over and over (and 95% of your life comes from the subconscious), then there will come a point where you won’t have to say it again. It will be automatic. You will become that which you wish to become.

This is the Secret. Repetition is a Habit. You can change your own mind and your reality, in a major way.

Repeat, Repeat, REPEAT!

To summarize: The biggest thing that determines whether or not you can become wealthy is your BELIEFS.

Our beliefs about money will determine whether or not we have any. The beliefs you hold about money is your “Blueprint”… it’s what will guide you and push you toward, or away from, your financial goals.

If you aren’t aware of your ‘money blueprint”, then you will be stuck in the same money situation for the REST OF YOUR LIFE. Identify it. Become aware of it and then you can change it.

So, that’s a lot of interesting information and you can now use it to develop a Success Mindset.

I’ll have more information on this important subject in the next article “Great Lessons From Rich Dad Poor Dad (or Secrets Of The Millionaire Mind) “ Follow me to get notifications of these great tips on building Online Business Success!

How To Sell Products Using Affiliate Marketing (and Avoid THIS Big Mistake)

Is the idea of building an Affiliate Marketing business an overwhelming thought? Do you think there are going to be too many hoops to jump through?

It’s not as hard to do as you may think. There are so many point and click systems already in place for you to promote that it’s pretty easy to get started.

Step #1 — The Product. Where do you find something to sell?

To make it easier for you, I’m going to recommend the company that I used to get started with affiliate marketing. This company teaches you how to build an online business from A to Z — it’s the best of the best when it comes to Online Business Building Education. It meets all ‘3 Pillars of Business For Success’ and it’s also part of the “Core 4 Business Model” types that almost guarantee success in starting an online business. (see my previous articles to find out what the 3 Pillars and Core 4 is)

What better model to use than an actual company that teaches how to set up an Affiliate Marketing business?!

You can get a Video with More Info from Here…

Once you experience the value in a Great Online Affiliate Marketing system, you’ll be able to spot the “less than stellar” products/programs easily. I recommend this company as well because it has really inexpensive starter programs… like just $7!!! I actually laughed when I first saw that, but I was really amazed at the value they included in this starter program. They proved their integrity right from the get go, which of course is really important.

Step # 2 – Set Up A Sales Funnel

The most effective tool you can set up with an Affiliate Marketing business is a Sales Funnel.

Costly Mistake to AVOID…

Once you’ve chosen your affiliate program, the temptation is to start posting your affiliate link all over your social media and emailing your friends and family. STOP!

The #1 mistake people make is sending people (their leads) right to the product sales page. Affiliate Marketing programs are generally set up for you to send your customers right to their products, which is easy for you, but it’s a mistake because you Leave Yourselfout of the equation!

When you send people directly to the product sales page they don’t know who you are. They only see the Affiliate business.. not you… so how are you to build a relationship with any of the people you’ve attracted if you don’t get their email address?

A Sales Funnel is the missing piece that gets you back in the equation. It gets their email address sent to your list. Then you can email them with other related offers they might purchase which means more sales commissions for you!

Here’s an example.. Go Here to See a Part of The Sales Funnel in Action!

The Sales Funnel consists of a “Capture page”, a “Bridge Page” and a “Sales Page”.

The Capture Page has two parts. A Form where people enter their email address to get the information they want. Those email addresses go to an Email List that you can use to send more information and offers to those people on the list.

Aweber and ClickFunnels are two programs that have step by step tutorials to help you set up your Sales Funnels. I personally use Aweber, but both programs are really good.

The Bridge Page is the page they land on after entering their email address to get access to the info. The bridge page could have a video, text information or both. It explains in detail what the benefits of their product/service/program is. The Bridge Page is provided for you by the Affiliate program. All you have to do is insert the page link they give you, into the capture page. There will be a place for you to do that when you set up the Capture Page. It’s very step by step and easy peasy.

Last is the Sales Page. Your affiliate ID from the Affiliate company is already embedded in the links from the Bridge Page so you don’t have to do anything about that. The customer is taken to the Sales Page, the check out and everything is automated.

The Main Part You Need To Learn How To Do Well, IS THE SALES FUNNEL!!

Once you have your Sales Funnel, The rest is just a matter of posting your Capture Page link in articles or Ads that you write to tell people about your great product!

That’s one of the main reasons I really like the Affiliate Program I chose,, they teach you how to do every part of the process. They teach you how to build your business from the ground up.

OK… that’s all for today. If you want to check out my favourite Affiliate Program, you can do it HERE.

How To Funnel Customers into Sales System For Additional Sales and Profit (And Why Websites Don’t Work Anymore.)

Have you ever wondered why the sales clerk asks you for your email address or postal code?

Congratulations! You’ve just received your first sale.. that’s a wonderful milestone and a fabulous feeling. So you deposit your commission and wait patiently for the next sale. Instead of waiting, why not think about how to make more and larger sales.

You’ve learned in my last article, ‘How To Earn BIGGER Commissions with the Same Amount of Work?’, about the importance of having a Value Ladder, now let’s think about how to take advantage of that.

If you’ve ever wondered why sales clerks ask you for your email address, it’s because they are doing their own version of a sales funnel. You purchase something and they email you additional offers or % Off coupons to entice you to come back to their store to buy more. Often they include “surveys” to find out more about your shopping preferences.

Their top of mind question is ultimately this…

What would this customer need or want that would make their purchase more complete or convenient, or ADD more value?”

If you can get the answer to that question, then you can make more sales, and thus, more profit.

An additional offer is called an “Upsell”. Don’t try to make all your money on your first initial sale. It’s important to get their email to say ‘Thank You’, and “Here’s something you might really like to go along with the XYZ you just purchased.”

All successful businesses use this method to attract and maintain customers and you should too.

The Sales Funnel is effective at converting traffic into leads, and leads into customers. Your goal is to set up your funnel right off the bat.

Here’s an example of how you set up a Sales Funnel…

AFFILLIATE MARKETING SALES FUNNELS

1. Leads come from Free Advertising (email, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Linkedin, TheFreeAdForum, Adwords, etc)

2. The Leads are directed to the URL of an Opt-In page where they put in their email addess to get the “Offer”.

3. The Leads are then taken to the Affiliate Bridge Page that gives all the information about the offer, videos on the offer, and sales copy. When they click the button to “Claim Their Offer”, they are taken to the Sales Page that gives additional info on what the product will do for them and they click Buy Now.

4. The Lead is now a potential customer and they are shown the total cost, enter their payment info and click ‘Check Out’.

5. At Check Out a page will pop up offering them an upsell product for a great one time only price, that is too good of a deal to pass up. They can add it or say No Thank You and then are taken to the check out page. Once the transaction is complete they are taken to…

6. A Thank You page, with a receipt attached to notice the receipt will be emailed to them. There is usually instructions on how to download their product or how it will be delivered with perhaps some needed other steps of confirmation or completions details.

When you’ve captured their email address from the Opt-in page, you’ll need to set up a series of email offers to send to these customers on a regular basis. The offers are usually in the form of training or products or even just additional advice or ‘How-To’s.

I recommend Aweber or ClickFunnels to set up and run your email list. Both of these companies have fantastic autoresponder capabilities where your list is kept safe and secure and you can set up your email campaign right in their point and click system.

These emails will be a regular source of income over the years to the people who have purchased your products/services.

So that my friends, is a Sales Funnel. Legendary Marketer takes you by the hand and teaches you step-by-step how to set one up. It’s worth its weight in gold and will generate income long after you’ve set it up.

How Can You Earn BIGGER Commissions with the Same Amount of Work?

Let your Dream be bigger than your fears
Bigger IS Better!

So, you’ve decided to take some steps and follow through with starting an online business… BRAVO! That’s the first big hurdle. Deciding. Then you’ve had a look at the products you can promote and have done a rough calculation on how many sales you’ll have to make in order to earn XX amount of dollars.

And then you go… OY. You realize you’re not gonna make much commission on each sale, BUT you’re learning what to do to make sales, so that’s a big bonus right there!

It takes awhile… don’t celebrate yet… focus on workin it!

On the one hand, you’re learning how to make sales, and thus, commissions! So, YEAH! On the other hand, you have to make a LOT of sales to make a big difference in your earnings. So, BOO!

It’s the first bump of disappointment, but you’re still pumped, right? Great! You should be.

It’s important to learn the skills on how to promote an online business, but keep in mind there’s a lot to learn and as you progress you’ll get better and better at it. One of the things I want to impress on you is this…

If you can make a sale for a small commission, then you can make a sale for a LARGE commission…

IT’S THE SAME AMOUNT OF WORK!!

Serious? How exciting is that revelation???

All Right… Calm Down… Let’s get to it. How can YOU make BIGGER commissions on your sales so you don’t have to make as many?

It’s going to be crazy exciting when you get your first sale and make that first commission. You’ll be like “I’m gonna get Rich!” Again, calm down. You’ll have learned some skills so next you’ll need to leverage those skills to get sales on larger ticket items, and thus, larger commissions.

Getting larger commissions is by using what’s called a “VALUE LADDER”.

Here’s how the Value Ladder works…

To attract a customer, first you have to offer them something of value for a small amount of money, maybe $7 or under, or for free. You won’t make much of a commission on that sale, maybe even nothing, but it brings you a customer who is interested in your offer.

If they like what you have to offer maybe they want MORE information or a little more help. You offer another product or service that gives more value for a little higher price, let’s say around $30 a month so they can keep progressing. There you have repetitive business. Here’s where you can really leverage the skills you’ve learned. You offer them a High Value product that will give them EVERYTHING they need and of course the price is higher which lets you make higher commission. Do you see the ladder?

  • Small priced or Free valuable item….
  • Medium priced valuable item…
  • High priced value item…

The product/service keeps increasing in value and price. Usually, the higher the price, the more invested in your product your customer is as well.

Here’s an example:

10 sales with a commission of $25 = $250. If you want to earn $3000 a month you’re going to have to make 120 sales each month if you only have that one product.

If you have a Value Ladder, No worries! You can offer those 10 customers MORE VALUE.. your higher value, higher ticket item!

Let’s say 3 of those 10 customers purchase your high ticket item and you earn a commission of $1000, that’s $3,000 Plus the original $250.

Which scenario would you prefer? Yup.. me too. No Brainer.

*** Disclaimer here. I was using those numbers to illustrate the principle of a Value Ladder. Got that? It was an illustration. I’m not making any claims or promises on what you can or cannot earn. It totally depends on the business you chose to build.****

After you learn to generate more and more customers for FREE, The Value Ladder principle will help you focus on maximizing your profits on the back end.

SOOO… I AM GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT BUSINESS I LOVE and the one I’m promoting to Do All The Things I’m Telling You About.
