When it comes to earning multiple sources of income from internet marketing, most aspiring marketers have the impression that they have to set up several websites selling different products in order to boost their cash flow.
But this is far from the truth… especially when you are not able to maintain focus in any of the businesses. And this can be detrimental to your potential earning power.
Well, I’m going to show you exactly how you can maintain focus in your business and still create multiple sources of income, at the same time.
And the best part is… you can do this with just one page and dramatically increase your profits! (My profits increased by 276% with this method)
So how I did it?
Simple. Instead of creating multiple websites for different niches like most marketers do, I adopted a slightly different approach.
I offered more similar products in the same niche, after the front-end product.
This is what normally people would call and an upsell or an OTO (One-Time-Offer).
But I prefer to call it an upgrade.
Selling “upgrades” is an area that can become profitable for many businesses in increasing their existing sales.
Just take a look at Mac Donald’s for example. Do you remember when you were making an order at the counter, you were being asked, “Do you want to have an upsize or do you want to have a fries to go along with that? etc.” – That’s an upgrade.
You can also do that on your internet business. You just have to offer more benefits to your existing product to your customers.
It’s similar to selling an extended warranty.
You see, people want to reduce the element of risk of a potential loss or benefit; they want a guarantee over their guarantee!
If you could provide for them and make them feel that they’re taken care of; when they buy from you, they will want to continue to enjoy your products and services.
The best way to do this is to package your products in such a way that, the only way for your customer to benefit FULLY, is to get the products in its entirety.
Very often, the sale of these extended benefits has a much higher profit margins as there are no costs to acquire the customers.
This calls for strategizing which product to be placed on the front end, the upgrade and the back-end offer.
People love options, and the idea is to place the ball in their court and provide them with more choices… Sell them extended benefits!
Last night I rented a strange ‘Bruno’ DVD and I can tell you this has to be the most outrageously sexual “in your face” comedic movie of this year.
In Bruno, Sasha Baron Cohen plays a haughty flamboyant gay fashion journalist from Austria, who got fired after making a scene on the stage of a fashion runway.
And then he comes to America with his personal assistant to seek fortune and fame, encounters humiliations to which he is obdurately immune and achieves a redemption of sort toward the end.
As there are people who really enjoyed Sacha’s portrayal of a extravagant incarnation of a silly, retrograde stereotype of gayness, there are also as many people who got offended by his wicked sense of humor.
And it seem highly unlikely that anyone can actually pick out something of value to learn from from the movie, but if you look beyond the “sick” comedy (As some would call it) and deep into Bruno’s character, you’ll find that Bruno has an unwavering determination to succeed in the show business and to become a celebrity. he literally strives to receive public attention and admiration.
He’s determination has led him to do whatever it takes to get him what he wants… No matter how ridiculous it may seem!
Bruno, followed in the footsteps of some well-known actors in order to gain fame.
He went as far as to adopt an African infant – obviously modelling “Bradgelina”.
And even tried to bring peace to the middle-east and go to the extend of risking life to interview a real terrorist – all of that just to gain fame and to fit into the false “social impression” of a celebrity.
This is indeed one of the most unusual but perfect example of somebody, not re-inventing the wheel but trying to follow exactly what others have done to succeed.
Now, how far would you be willing to move out from your comfort zone and do whatever it takes to model someone else’s method to achieve success in your home business?
Well, at times you may find that there are moments when you just dread doing the little things to promote your business.
Things like submitting articles or writing a blog post.
You’ll probably even let it slide if you were to skip a day or two without doing them.
And eventually, you might even find yourself giving up on your business totally even before the results show.
I’m sure you know what I’m talking about. Well, if you really find it that hard to move on.
I really recommend you to watch Bruno. And ask yourself after the movie, “What would Bruno do if he were to be in a home business”?
You see, Bruno started out with a dream… and this dream was so important to him that he made it a goal to accomplish it no matter what it took.
The dream was so important to him as if it was a matter of life and death.
Now, the question is… What is it about life that is so important to you, that you MUST accomplish before you leave this world?
And once you are clear of what you really want, the “how” will naturally come to you.
Because you will find all sorts of way to make it work. It’s almost like guerilla warfare.
Your goal will also be your source of motivation to keep moving on, whenever you face an obstacle or whenever you feel like giving up.
Trust me on this… I used to be caught in a six figure debt, but I got out of it within a year!
And it’s all because I wanted to get out of it so bad that I did whatever I could to bring me closer toward my goal.
I attended numerous seminars and courses and I tried every possible way to make money online.
And right now, equipped with the experience, I can always repeat the same process that has worked for me before and create another massive flow of income.
Now, I’m definitely not trying to brag to you.. But I want you to understand that having a clear goal and following a success model consistently can bring you big returns.
And studies and research have proven that it has been an epitome of success since thousands of years ago.
Start finding your true purpose in life and find someone who shares that same purpose as you, but who have already achieve it.
Before you know it, you’ll probably be the next internet marketing celebrity.
Have you ever experienced a bad day where everything doesn’t seem to go your way?
Especially when “bad” things start to happen coincidentally all on the same day. Things like your car broke down, tripping on your own foot, getting food poisoning, and getting drenched by a car speeding across a puddle of water is more than enough to keep you pissed the whole day.
How will you handle it if you were to experience all of these on the same day?
Well, it did happened to me… it was definitely one of my worst days ever. I was simply frustrated… When I came back home, my family members new better than to talk to me. They see I was fuming mad. I could literally go berserk if I were to be provoke under such conditions.
I bet you know what I’m talking about.
Well, I had on a punching bag hanging from my ceiling… And I use it not only for the my muay thai training, but also to vent my frustrations and anger on. But after awhile, I would be just as fine as I was from a start of a new day. So how’s that for anger management?
But the story doesn’t end there. When I checked my email, I found that I’ve actually been scammed by 2 other Internet Marketers. We had an agreement to promote each other’s website. But turns out, I was the only one who was fulfilling the agreement. And I’ve never heard from them ever since!
I can’t even describe to you how upset I was. For a while, I tried frantically to get a hold of them over the phone. A small part of me still hope that they’ll pick up my call and explain to me that they’ve made a mistake and that they’ll correct it right away.
But seriously, what are the odds? I knew I was kidding myself.
Then, I realised that I’ve actually invested a lot of energy in feeling discontentment. And it seem almost unnoticeable that 4 hours have actually passed and I was still held in disbelief that I’ve been scammed big time.
What a waste of time! So immediately, I shifted my state of mind from exasperation to determination. And started looking for more affiliates to promote my product. There was no more time to waste.
You see, in life… no matter what obstacles we face, we just have to move on.
Dont be dishearten when things don’t go your way, because it will only cause inaction on your part. The more you spend time fighting and quarrelling about things, the more energy you use and the less you will accomplish.
So, the next time when something doesn’t go your way… be it your online business or in your everyday life; tell yourself that sh** just happens and move on.
P.S. Don’t get hang out on all those nonsense excuses, make sure you have a bullet proof system that will drive tons of leads and customers to your business even when you are in a ‘bad’ mood. This system is drop dead easy to use.
