Reach Your Goals Faster with High-Power Work Sessions

Reach Your Goals Faster with High-Power Work Sessions

Reach Your Goals

A lot of people hoping to make money online are limited to working at it just a few hours per day or less. If you’re working a day job and are frustrated that you can’t spend more time becoming financially free, I have some good news for you. Using high power work sessions can help you reach your goals faster.

Do you know what’s even more effective than having more time to work? Getting as much as you possibly can out of the time you do have available.

The reason is that if you’re not focused and effective during a short period of time, then having all day would just mean more wasted time. As a mentor of mine once said, “If you can’t make money in your spare time, you can’t make money full-time.”

[bctt tweet=”Work Smarter, Not Harder!” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

So, here are 5 proven tips I want to share, based on what modern neuroscience has shown (not motivational fluff), that will help you to get even closer to your income goals in less time.

Tip 1: How Our Brains Work Against Us

There’s a meme floating around called “Scumbag Brain” that jokes about how the human brain works against us sometimes instead of doing what we want it to. For example…It’s easy to get motivated, but hard to stay disciplined.

Perhaps you’ve noticed that gritting your teeth and relying on willpower alone is not enough.

Think of the last time you were on an exercise program that did not last. You went to the gym religiously for several weeks…until you caught a cold, or missed a day. Then, it was back to your old habits and behavior again—not to mention feelings of guilt and self-blame (which makes it even harder to bounce back).

The key is to avoid self-criticism by understanding how your mind works. We all get lazy or have setbacks. The key is to get back on track again quickly when (not if) it happens.

Tip 2: Schedule 90-120 Minute Time Blocks

The easiest way to get something done is to set a specific time and place to do it, and then show up when the time comes. Otherwise, your goals and plans are not concrete enough, and you can fall into the procrastination trap.

It’s also a fact that people can only stay focused and productive for 90 to 120 minutes at a time, before we need a rest or diversion. It’s impossible to stay ultra-productive all the time. Don’t even bother trying.

Instead, schedule blocks of time when you’ll be doing nothing but working, and when it’s over, STOP. Take a 15-20 minute break, or wrap it up for the day.

Also, treat your scheduled commitment to yourself as seriously as you would your job. Isn’t it just as important?

Tip 3: Prioritize Your Top 5 Items

It helps to list the top 5 tasks to accomplish each day, preferably the night before. Then, when the time comes to work, work on one thing at a time, starting with the most important action item of the day.

When it’s finished, move on to item #2, and so on, until done. Do NOT try to do two things at once! Multi-tasking is a myth and a joke.

It gives people the illusion that they are getting more done, but in reality you lose concentration while switching back and forth between items because it takes time for the mind to get caught up again.

Tip 4: Create an Environment for Focused Work

Your performance is affected by the environment you’re in and the tools available to you, positively or negatively, Give your body and mind what they need to perform by setting up your workspace for success.

Before you start, clear out the clutter and remove any potential distractions. Have only one window open on your computer. Get away from email, phone, and social media until your work block is over. You can schedule a separate session for phone calls and email.

I have also found that upbeat music helps me move more quickly, as long as it’s not too distracting (and no vocals—otherwise my mind pays attention to the lyrics).

Tip 5: Take a Fun Break!

Lastly, don’t forget to give yourself the rest you need, in order to have the concentration reserves you need to fuel your work.

So make a point to schedule periods each day for breaks, leisure, and fun as well as working on your business. This can prove to be just as important to be consistent in the long run!

Hopefully you will find these tips to be as helpful as they were for me while growing my own business!

Also, if you want to get even more done and make even more money in less time than you can achieve through your own efforts, consider licensing and promoting other people’s info products and sales funnels, rather than creating them all from scratch.

Six Savvy Ways To Market Your Website

Savvy Website

Six Savvy Ways To Market Your Website

You want your company’s website to reach out to as many people as possible. Its primary purpose is to be a virtual advertisement that teaches visitors more about what the brand has available. If you aren’t marketing your website correctly, no one is seeing your content. And that means your website isn’t doing its job. Let’s discuss six savvy things that you can do to help market your website and boost the number of visitors you receive.

[bctt tweet=”Doing It Right: Six Fundamental Ways To Do Website Marketing” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Search Engine Optimization:

This is the process of increasing the visibility of your website in search engine results. By optimizing keyword phrases, you can help rank your link to the top of search engine result pages such as Google or Bing. Since most people do not go beyond the first page of their search results, being at the top really matters when it comes to SEO.           

There are several ways you can improve your website’s SEO. You can improve your existing content to include more keyword phrases. Add a blog to add fresh content to your site, and increase the number of backlinks or inbound links that are on your webpage. Inbound links are links that your website receives from other websites. They help to improve your online reputation.

Blogging:

The second thing on our list is blogging. Having a company blog on your website will provide you with a place to inform your target audience of everything new. And keeping consistent content on your page will help keep visitors coming back for more. The wonderful thing about blogging is that your content doesn’t always have to be about the company. It can be about something distantly related to your brand that is popular or trending right now.

PPC or Pay-Per-Click:

This is an online marketing strategy that’s been around for years, yet it’s still very effective. PPC advertising can bring in traffic to your site from search engines. You pay a fixed price for every click your ad receives. The goal is to convert the visitor to see a return on your investment.

Google Adwords uses PPC and allows you to set a budget (such as five dollars a day or a maximum of ten cents per click). You choose the keyword phrases and Google helps you get your company’s ad in front of your target audience, no matter where they may be on the web.

Facebook Ads:

On average, more than 483 million people use Facebook every day. That’s great news for companies who wish to advertise on the social media giant. Facebook ads can help you direct your ads to members of your target audience. You can choose your ads to show to people in a certain location, age demographic, or fans of other similar companies to your own. It’s a great, affordable way to bring new traffic to your website.

Retargeting Ads:

This is a method where you place a tracking cookie on your visitor’s computer. When they leave your website, they will see ads from your company, allowing them to click and come back if there were something they missed. This advertising method can help you reach visitors who leave without making a purchase, which can often be around 98% of your total visitors.

If you’ve spent any time online you’ve seen retargeting ads yourself. You may visit an online store, looking for an item to buy and then leave the website. A few minutes later while on Facebook, an ad shows up on your wall for the exact store or the exact item you were looking for. This keeps your company or the item the visitor wants, fresh in their minds. And that will increase the chances of the visitor coming back to buy the product.

YouTube:

Creating a video about your company and posting it on YouTube can help expose your brand to others in a creative and convenient way. Google will index the content and others can embed your video on their blogs to share on social media. While not everyone has a video to go viral, you can still use YouTube as a resourceful tool to help get your name out there.

YouTube also gives you the option to advertise on other videos by purchasing targeting ads which are relevant to your business. If you sell athletic apparel for example, you could purchase a targeted ad for a video featuring sports news. People interested in athletics viewing the news video will see your ad and will be more inclined to purchase something from you than someone in another demographic.

How to Grow Your YouTube Following

YouTube FollowingDiscover the basics on How to Grow Your YouTube Following.

Today, YouTube has over one billion viewers. If you aren’t using YouTube to grow your audience, you’re missing out on a substantial portion of the population, and a great way to increase your influence online. It’s not just viewers you need though. You need users that are actively engaged in your channel. YouTube is a massive opportunity to grow your following for the long-term.

[bctt tweet=”YouTube is becoming much more than an entertainment destination. -Chad Hurley ” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Let’s take a look at some of the best ways to grow your YouTube following. There is no secret formula or unique guide to building up your user base. It’s merely being consistent, providing quality content, and rewarding those who follow you. What does that look like? Here are a few ideas.

Consistency is Key

As we previously mentioned, one of the keys to a successful YouTube following on your channel, and a loyal following is consistency. Pick a theme and stick with it. There’s nothing worse than finding a YouTube channel you like, only to discover that it’s changed direction or not what you thought it was. It’s a good, quick way to lose followers.

Build your brand, and doing it in a way that doesn’t require users to take a lot of time to figure out who you are and what you’re selling. Users subscribe for two reasons:

  1. Because they like the content they just viewed
  2. And secondly, they expect more of the same in the future.

Figure out before you launch your channel what your premise and platform will be. Communicate it effectively across all of your videos so visitors will be able to identify your brand at a glance. You can do this in a variety of ways, whether it is through a channel trailer, via a pitch that lets users know when the next post will be, or through customized thumbnails which will grab the attention of visitors to your channel.

Quality Content

When a person is introduced to your channel, the more of our videos they watch, the higher the chance they will subscribe, thus growing your YouTube following. Watching your videos gives visitors an excellent opportunity to follow you, while also showing them why they should.

One way you can do this is by creating playlists of your content. Organize your videos in a manner that will get good traction through searching on YouTube. You can choose important keywords to drive traffic to your channel. Create themed segments with your videos, which allows you to have control over which video the user will see next. This is especially important as YouTube could wind up playing other content, as opposed to your own after the video is over.

When creating your content, be sure to make it viewable in a format conducive to a mobile device. That does not mean it needs to be recorded and viewed on a smartphone, but rather that you should keep in mind that a lot of content is seen on a mobile device. Create short, consumable videos that will keep followers returning on a regular basis, eager and hungry for more.

As stated previously, there’s no shortcut or secret recipe to growing your YouTube following. Anyone trying to sell you a “get rich quick scheme” is nothing but a waste of your time and money.

When it comes to your YouTube following, more often than not, quality trumps quantity, especially when it comes to your users. It’s more important to have an engaged, valued audience of a few thousand than it is to have a million followers who have no idea who you are or what you’re selling. Find your niche, create your content, and build your following.

Conclusion:

Most definitely, this social outlet is very powerful in Growing Your YouTube Following. Using the tips above by being Consistent and Providing Quality Content are key to making your Channel one that people want to follow.

How to Grow Your YouTube Following

The use of video marketing is becoming increasingly popular for entrepreneurs. The reason is simple. More people are using mobile devices and the videos are easier to view on these devices than reading a lengthy blog post.

Unfortunately, there’s a lot of competition on YouTube. Getting noticed isn’t always easy. But, with a few simple tips, you can begin increasing the number of followers that you’ve got on YouTube.

Need to learn more about how to effective use YouTube to earn a monthly income?

With more followers, your videos are more likely to get noticed. Here are several steps that you can take right now to begin growing your YouTube following.

[bctt tweet=”Want to Learn YouTube Secrets to Earning $2K Monthly Income?” username=”sandsonlinevent”]

Increase the Value of Your Videos

The first step is to increase the value of your videos. People won’t share videos that don’t provide any real value. You can’t just create a video introducing your business and hope to get thousands of views.

Each video needs to have a specific focus. It’s much like writing a quality blog post. In fact, you can recycle your most popular blog content into videos.

Whenever you write a script for a video, always ask yourself if you’d share this video with others. The video needs to offer some benefit to the viewer. You can provide instructions, demonstrations, or tips related to a specific topic.

Remain Consistent with Your Release Schedule

YouTube offers video recommendations based on what you’ve already watched. If you remain consistent with your release schedule, you’re more likely to gain new subscribers.

If a viewer watches one of your videos without following, YouTube may recommend another your new videos as they’re released. This helps bring viewers back to your channel.

Whether you release one or four new videos each month, you should stick to a schedule. Decide which day of the week you’ll release your videos. Subscribers will know when to check back and your viewer retention rates will increase.

Ask People to Subscribe to Your Channel

Your videos should serve a specific purpose. As with your blog articles, the end of the video should include a call to action. You could tell viewers to follow a link or you can use this call to action to remind viewers to subscribe.

YouTube also provides the option to include an image or graphic to act as a clickable button overlay directly on top of your video. With this clickable button, you can include a link to subscribe to your YouTube channel.

Include a YouTube Widget on Your Website

You should also add a widget or link on your website that connects with your YouTube channel. Increase exposure to your channel by adding these features to your blog or business site.

If you use WordPress, you can find numerous widgets and plugins that allow you to add YouTube videos to your site. You could also add a YouTube subscribe button on your site.

Become a Featured YouTube Channel

You have the option to add “Featured Channels” to your YouTube channel. These are channels that you follow and recommend your followers to follow.

By getting these other channels to recommend you to their followers, you can boost exposure. There are two ways to go about this.

You can either directly ask a channel to add you or you can start following them. There is no guarantee that the other channel will follow you, but it’s still worth the effort.

Interact with People That Comment on Your Videos

You shouldn’t ignore the comments on your videos. Actively respond to these comments. People may leave a comment without following. After responding, they might rethink their decision and start following your channel.

Increasing your YouTube following is one method for improving your online presence. If you’d like to gain access to more internet marketing tips, and a way to generate new sales leads, then click here to learn about my done-for-you system.

Is Traffic Really Your Problem?

If you listen to the average internet business owner you’ll be lead to believe they have some kind of ‘traffic issue.’ They can’t get enough visitors to their webpage… or their list is too small to make a sale… or blah blah blah.

In reality, traffic is NOT your problem. 

WiFiMillionaire

You live in an age of digital abundance, a wonderland for marketers and business owners alike. Facebook. Adwords. Bing. Solo Ads. YouTube. Reddit. Instagram. Whatever.

There are literally BILLIONS upon BILLIONS of customers that can be reached in the next 30-minutes through one of the paid traffic sources I listed above.

If that’s the case, how then can you have a traffic problem?

You might say – “I can’t afford to buy traffic”. If that’s your objection you don’t have a traffic problem, you have a CONVERSION problem.

Here’s the deal – when you have a high-converting, high-ticket offer, traffic – and affordability – becomes a no-brainer. Because you know that every dollar you spend on advertising is going to bring you $1.10… $1.30… even $2 back. You’re literally buying cash at a discount. You can’t afford NOT to advertise.

But the key here is having an offer that converts well at a high price-point. 

Conversion you get, right? No conversion; no money. But why do you have to promote high-ticket offers?

It’s the math.

When Google Adwords first launched you would pay as little as 1 cent per click. But nowadays you would be hard pressed to buy a click for less than a $1 (depends on the keywords). Therefore your advertising costs have multiplied dramatically in just a few short years.

So think about that, let’s say you’re paying $2 a click – not a crazy number -and your sales page is converting at 3% (really good).

So, out of every 100 people who visit your page, 3 buy straight away.

100 x $2 PPC = $200 right?

This means to BREAK even each customer would have to spend $67 for you to break even.

3 x $67 = $203

And that would be if the $67 was pure profit, no product costs, no hosting fees, etc…

That’s a tough-gig.

Now imagine the average customer spent $1,000. Same conversion rate, same cost per click.

3 x $1,000 = $3,000.

You’ve made close to $2,800 in profit. Even taking in 50% in costs, you’re still ahead $1,400.

That’s the math behind internet riches. And why a high-ticket product will win EVERYTIME.

Forget the ‘low hanging fruit’ of $10 eBooks that seem easier to sell. It doesn’t pan out. Focus your time on promoting high-ticket products and your bank account will thank you.

Trust me.

5 Ways to Establish YOU as an Authority in Your Field

When you’re first starting out, it can be hard to generate any buzz. Your internet marketing efforts may have little impact. One method of generating sales is to become a leader and Authority in your field. Quality Content

If people regularly visit your website to find information and assistance, they’ll be more likely to buy related products or services from your website.

So, if you want to maximize your sales potential, you should establish yourself as an authority in your field. But, this will require work. Here are 5 ways to get started.

Create High-Quality Informative Content

The best way to become considered an authority in your field is to actually be an authority in your field. You’re going need to release high-quality content on a regular basis. This means you need to know what you’re talking about. Quality content is key.

You should know as much as possible about your industry and the products or services that you’re trying to market. If you should constantly be learning and researching the latest news and breakthroughs in your field.

Take your knowledge and start creating informative content. You can adopt a simple system for generating high-quality content and making the best use of the content that you create.

First, you should write detailed blog posts. You can use excerpts of these posts for your social media posts. Once you have enough articles on a similar topic, you can compile them into an eBook for promotional material. You can also film video versions of your blog posts to release on YouTube.

This allows you to stretch the use of your content. Instead of simply writing a blog post, you’re using the same research for multiple forms of content.

Use Your Own Name as Your Brand

In order to be thought of as a trusted authority in your industry, people need to know who you are. This means using your own name as your brand. You can have a name for your internet marketing business, but you should focus your marketing on your individual brand.

When you write blog posts, guest posts, release videos, write eBooks, and distribute other content, you should use your own name, instead of your business name.

Start Writing Guest Blog Posts

Once you get good at writing blog posts for your own site, you should start writing guest posts. When people start recognizing your name across multiple websites, they’ll start seeing you as someone that knows their field.

When you visit popular news sites and blogs related to your industry, you should find out if they accept guest posts. This information will typically be found near the footer, the end of blog posts, or in the about or contact section.

Take Part in Interviews or Podcasts

Any time that you have the opportunity to share your opinion on a topic, you should volunteer. This includes interviews and podcasts. Both are great opportunities for getting your name out there and reaching a larger audience.

These two options may take a while to achieve. Before you can establish a name for yourself, you may not get very many invitations to be interviewed.

Become Active in Online Communities and Forums

A final method for becoming a trusted authority in your field is to become active in online communities and forums. In these forums, people regularly post questions and need help. If you monitor these forums and are quick to respond, you’ll become known for providing solid advice.

Combining these steps will help you become an authority in your industry. It will take hard work and commitment. But, the reward is great. You’ll be able to reach greater success if people turn to you for answers.
