The most important step to take in starting your coaching business is to do it. Don’t agonize over what you’re going to charge, or how “expert” you are, or what exactly you’re going to say to your clients. Create the MVP (Minimum Viable Product) and get started. You’ll learn by doing. You’ll learn how to assess and address client’s needs. You’ll learn how to run a session.
Be professional. When you submit a résumé, don’t type it in ALL CAPS and please don’t avoid the caps lock like the plague. Know how to use it without looking incompetent. Write in complete sentences with proper grammar. Of course, there will be exceptions, but even with the exceptions, you must keep it professional. You’re building their view of you.
If you have a fondness and talent for taking pictures you can make extra money online by becoming a stock photographer and selling your images to a stock photo company like ShutterStock or iStockPhoto. You’ll get royalties every time someone licenses an image you’ve submitted. To really be successful, build your own photography website to be able to showcase your portfolio and start getting higher-paid private corporate work.
As you probably guessed, the scale of strategies behind promoting Clickbank products is much larger than the ClickBank itself. One thing you must understand is the fact that you need to choose your strategy based on the product, not what you know. Every product has a different audience and every audience requires a different approach, that’s why if you want to become a super affiliate on Clickbank, you need to learn these different strategies and choose the right one based on what you promote.
You must be at least 21 years old, have at least one year of licensed driving experience in the U.S. (three years if you’re under 23 years old), have a valid driver’s license and pass a background check. Also, your car must be a four-door, seat at least four passengers (excluding the driver), be registered in-state and be covered by in-state insurance.
Medium is an online community where anyone can post articles and essays and get them in front of their audience of millions of monthly readers. While it can be a great place to build your audience for your own blog or find customers for your consulting business, with Medium’s new Partner Program, you can now make money online whenever someone reads your articles. Register for free and you can choose whether your articles are freely available or only readable by those people paying $5/month for a premium Medium membership. You’ll make money based on the amount of people who read and engage with your posts each month.
ClickBank is an affiliate of the platforms that pay the highest commissions to its affiliates, and you have your choice, a large range of products to promote. It is also an excellent opportunity to experiment a little and see what niches are profitable and which the best products available in the online market. Most products clickbank, products are intangible, ie, (ebook,videos, product information, etc.)
Fiverr.com is a website where everything is available for $5. People offer various services ranging from software installation to creating silly videos. It is really simple to use and very easy to get started. Get registered for free, create gigs offering your services and get paid through PayPal. What kind of gigs? Recording video testimonials, writing poems, installing WordPress, creating logos and just anything.
22. Advertising – This is definitely the most old-school way of earning money with a blog. It’s also starting to become the least common way. You can sell advertising spots directly on your site or you can sign up with a company like Google AdSense or Media.net. Either way, you won’t see a whole lot of money from ads until your views are well into the thousands each day.
Online auction sites, such as Amazon seller, eBay, uBid, and Craigslist, are another great way to make income on the Internet. Finding and selling things around your house or visiting your local pawn shops and buying small items to resell on auction sites can be a way to make money. If you are not sure what to sell or what is in demand, do a search on eBay or other auction sites and sort by highest selling item. It can be surprising what people are selling and how much people are willing to pay for those items.
You see, coaching and consulting requires time. It's not a “passive income stream” by any measure and doing it means you're still stuck in the paradigm of trading your time for money. As long as you're trading your time for money, you'll never be able to scale up your income or have freedom. That's why I'm huge on creating AUTOMATED SYSTEMS that make you predictable, repeatable passive income while you're sleeping, day-after-day, month-after-month.
Take your solution to the ONE problem you’re solving and break that solution into Milestones. (i.e. If you’re a relationship coach who helps clients save their marriages, perhaps the first Milestone would be re-establishing communication. Then the second Milestone might be identifying the major problems. The third Milestone might be establishing intimacy, and so on.) You should have about 6-10 Milestones when all is said and done.
Build up a following on your Instagram account and you could quickly be making extra money online. Major brands, gear companies, and even startups are willing to shell out $500-$5,000+ per post to get in front of your audience. While it’s getting harder and harder to build a massive Instagram audience, if you already have a solid niche and are posting quality content regularly, with a few small tweaks you can make yourself an influencer. Check out this awesome article from Shopify on how to build and grow your Instagram following to get started.
Thanks for the great article. If i’m a manufacture/seller and want hire affiliate to promote our product, which are the most effective ways to do so? To be more specific, we’re a start-up selling glass vessel sinks and high end kitchen sinks/faucets(www.arsumo.com).We’d like to give high commission rates for marketers to sell our product (10+%). Our product quality is great and we sell on wayfair and overstock currently but like to grow our own marketing channel. Thank you for your advise! I’m also considering to take your class to dive deeper into the marketer world.
I have developed what I think is a pretty cool 11-part auto responder series that solves a critical problem people have in my niche – it includes a number of affiliate links as well (although not clickbank – yet). I currently have a squeeze page set up which I’m driving traffic to through using FB ads, but I’m finding that I’m having to pay way too much for every conversion ( > $1.50 per conversion).
You don’t need to come up with a great idea to be a successful online entrepreneur. You can just ape another successful venture. However, you need to target a totally new market or segment. For instance, a popular Indian e-commerce store copied the Ebay formula to become a giant business in the country. There are so many Fiverr clones which have been started to target a niche audience or offer a service with a twist. A Fiverr clone allows people to buy and sell stuff in 3-hours. That’s all the creativity and innovation that you need.
I've learned so much with this course! KC Tan is an excellent instructor. He covers all the bases. Also, his facebook group and email list have both been a great value for me. I've made money using this method, and I'm hoping to start making even more by learning list building details in another of his courses that I just started. So glad I came across his courses.
25. Products – You can create your own product, such as an ebook or computer software. You would then use your blog as a promotion tool to get people to buy your product. As long as you create a legitimate product with a whole lot of value, you should be able to get some buyers, but like everything else with a blog, you’ll need the traffic to get the sells.
Online business is how I’ve made a living since 2003 and what has helped me retire early. I make over $40,000 a month through my blog. You can create your own blog here with my easy 15-minute step-by-step tutorial. You can start a blog for as little as $2.95 a month (less than a cup of coffee!). Create a blog and leverage it into affiliate sales or product endorsement deals. Consider topics like:
I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues with your site. It appears as if some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This might be a issue with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously. I appreciate it.
Coaches, mentors, instructors, and gurus are all over the place and they advertise everywhere. Simple searches on Google will reveal thousands of alternatives. I'm surprised you're having trouble finding them because my experience has been that once they know you're looking for a mentor, they will be all over you "like flies on a rib roast." (Thanks cousin Eddy).
Please note that some of the links below are affiliate links and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission. Know that I only recommend products, tools and learning resources I've personally used and believe are genuinely helpful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to purchase them. Most of all, I would never advocate for buying something that you can't afford or that you're not yet ready to implement.
Affiliate commissions – I wanted to attend conferences to help me learn and grow. Many of those conferences offered an affiliate fee. One of the first I attended was Mark Victor Hansen’s MegaBook University. The price was $995 and I got a 30% affiliate fee. I promoted it to my little group of friends, told them I’d buy them dinner, and had 12 people join me there. I paid full price for myself, half price for my son and had flights and hotel expenses = $2500 and bought dinner for those 12 folks for another $300. So I invested $2800. But a week after I got home I got my affiliate check (33% of the 12 attendees = $3582) Deduct my total expenses and I got to attend the conference for free and netted a $782 profit. I’ve done that more times than I can possibly remember with conferences, courses and programs. We now conduct our Coaching with Excellence conferences and have affiliates who do the same as I did.
