The New Emoji Marketing Method

Emojis aren’t just for friends; they’re the ultimate magnet for capturing your customers’ attention, increasing user engagement, and even helping to close sales.

The funny thing is that most businesses think emojis are best left to 16-year old girls:

“We want to maintain a professional appearance to our customers, which is why we will never use emojis in any of our communications,” said the out-of-touch company executive to the marketing team struggling to...

Guaranteed Profits BEFORE You Launch Using the T-Spring Sales Method

This isn’t about selling t-shirts, but rather the lesson we can learn from t-shirt sellers that will put money in our pocket before creating the product.

When you sell shirts on T-Spring, you’re not committed to investing any money until you have the orders in hand.

Let’s say your goal is to sell 50 t-shirts at $15 apiece. You advertise on social media, and buyers commit to purchasing the actual shirts. But until you reach the 50 order mark, or whatever number you’ve...

How to Make Money from Other People’s Ideas

I want to be clear right up front – there is NO stealing required to do this.

In fact, professionals have been doing this same thing forever, or at least since people have been creating stories, content, and so forth.

I’ll give you some movie examples:

Bridget Jones Diary (2001) is really a modern version of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

Clueless (1995) is based on Jane Austen’s Emma.

Cruel Intentions (1999) is a modern version of Pierre Choderlos de Lacios’...

This is a part-time business that quite literally requires no specialized knowledge, and you don’t even need a product.

You need just enough people skills to build rapport over the phone, Skype, Zoom, or whatever mode of communication you choose.

I know a guy who is doing this part-time, and based on my math, he seems to be making about $4,200 a month doing this 2 hours a day.

He charges his clients $35 a week for a 20-minute phone call, and he books about six clients per day during his...

Zoom gives you the capability to hold face-to-face meetings, show what’s on your screen to everyone else on the call, pass control from one person to another and record the call as a video.

$3,500 a Month from Newsletter Curation

Have I told you lately how much I LOVE recurring income?

Here’s a brief case study about a guy who has not one, but FOUR different newsletters that he puts out twice per month.

These are super simple newsletters that contain all the latest stuff he’s found on the internet about the topics.

How in the world does he find all the latest news, articles, blog posts, stories, video clips, photos, and so forth?

Google alerts.

Yup, it’s that easy.

He creates a dozen or so Google...

Made You Look! How to Make Headline Grabbers Work for You

 

Headlines are the "make or break," "do or die" piece of your content. Think of all the times you've scanned title after title before clicking on the headline that stopped your scroll.

73% of people admit to skimming blog posts, while only 27% consume them thoroughly. Without a compelling headline, your content won’t receive the eyes it deserves.

But what exactly are headline grabbers? And how do you write one that stands out among the black-and-white sea of copy monotony? Most...

Here is How to Experience the "Fresh Start Effect"

 

The fresh start effect is defined as the feeling all individuals know at the beginning or end of an experience, week etc. It says that people are better at tackling their goals when they start on so-called temporal landmarks.

What is less obvious actually is the fact that not all beginnings are equally good. After a big success, you are very likely to know failure, for instance.

Keep track of your performance

In order to reach your goal, learn to rely on performance metrics,...
