  • “It seems like people don’t want to spend money”

    A subscriber told me she was having problems selling her own products and also affiliate products (products of others that she would get a commission on). When I asked her why she thought she was having these problems, she answered: “it seems like people don’t want to spend money.” I thought I would share with you the answer I gave her. I think everyone experiences this.

  • Why blog posts now need a call to action

    Once upon a time, you could build a blog post and people would come and they would subscribe just because the opt-in form was in the sidebar. No more. People are wary of getting more emails. They tend to swoop in, get what they need, and quickly leave. So you need to integrate a call to action (CTA) into the blog post itself.

  • 12 steps to quick infoproduct creation

    An important part of the success of your online business — and getting your message out to the world — is creating infoproducts.

  • Create a roadmap for your business–and then follow it!

    This past week I coached two people on a roadmap for their business. Both of them have been floundering for a long time, trying to figure out which direction to take. In one case, it was a plan for a product. In the other, it was a plan for a free download plus ways to promote services. If you don’t have a roadmap, you don’t know where you’re going! And you might be going ...

  • Should you buy PLR (private label rights) products?

    I’m continuing to respond to those of you who completed my survey a few months ago. I received this question… “I don’t actually have an online business yet. I was thinking of private label products or the like. What do you think?” What is PLR and why would you want to use it? PLR is pre-written content that you buy and can then use pretty much any way you want.

  • How can I make passive income?

    Someone asked me, “What is the next big thing for passive income?” The word “passive” is very relative. If you want to make income without doing any work, you won’t find a solution here. You can outsource a lot of the work, but of course, you’ll have to pay for that. Usually, you get passive income by doing a lot of work up front.

  • 9 tips to design presentations for webinars

    I recently gave a presentation on this topic at the Presenters Network meeting in Manhattan and thought I’d share with you my points for designing presentations for webinars. By the word “design,” I mean both the visual design of the slides and the design of the content. Webinars have many advantages over live presentations: No travel (time or cost) Greater reach (all over ...

  • Get high-quality images at an unbeatable price!

    I found an amazing deal on stock photos and since I bought a plan, I’ve been using the photos almost non-stop. It’s called Stock Unlimited (that’s an affiliate link; if you buy, I get $10) and what’s so special about it is the lifetime plan — unheard of in this business! They don’t have as many photos as some of the big names, which have millions. But over 600,000 is good enough for me.

  • 4 tools to improve your conversions

    During my 16+ years online, I’ve been lax in tracking and testing conversions, I admit. But it’s SO important to know your conversion on your opt-in and sales pages as well as your emails. And especially to test variations to see which one works best. Why? When you have knowledge, you can make changes that improve your conversion. And believe me, all of the highly successful marketers test.
