Many people in this industry tend to over-complicate things with online marketing.
But it doesn’t have to be overwhelming or confusing at all…
You just need to get from point-A-to-point-B with the least resistance.
And the secret to success is to prioritize your time and your money.
Prioritize Your Time
You should get started every morning by performing the high-level, creative tasks that actually bring you money.
People have the most mental energy available first thing in the morning.
That’s when you should send out an email to your list – in the morning while you’re at your peak.
Here’s another piece of advice: DO NOT check your email in the morning…
I strongly advise against checking your email inbox first thing in the morning, because hen you start replying to emails and focusing on many different issues, it’s easy to get distracted and waste the most productive time of your day.
And before you know it, two or three hours have gone by, and you’ve wasted your peak mental state on something that doesn’t require that peak mental state.
Prioritize Your Money
As far as prioritizing your money, if you are brand new in business, you should invest your money into whatever will produce cash flow.
The highest return-on-investment (ROI) you could possibly make is to put your money into acquiring new customers.
That’s why it is SO important to put some money into paid ads first, because that’s the best and quickest way to get sales now.
And if you want to get sales even faster, I have a great opportunity for you…
It’s called The Laptop Lifestyle System and it has paid regular people like you over $103 million in commissions.
The system was designed for normal people (like you), gives you a coach, and teaches you how to get leads online.
The company behind this system builds the websites, fulfills the products, and sells your leads into higher priced programs that you continue getting commissions on – for life.
And every time our phone team closes a sale, you could make BIG commissions of $1,250, $5,500, or $10,000 per sale… and sometimes more!
All you have to do is bring in the leads, which I do mostly through free social media, and this company does the rest for you.
You’re just one step away from changing your life and financial future forever.

The clever combination of “Twitter” and “period” should tell you all you need to know about this app. You can spy on your followers and see when they are most active on Twitter, therefore giving you a better idea of when to post during peak times. Combine this with a scheduling app and watch your retweets climb higher.
Speaking of scheduling apps, Buffer gives you the ability to schedule tweets and posts at certain times.

Managing your social media presence and watching what people are saying about your brand is incredibly important to maintain a positive image of your company.
Bit.ly is great because it does two things. The first is that it shortens your links which is very useful for fitting in everything you need to say in a 140-character limit. The second thing Bit.ly does is track the number of clicks so you can see how many people actually interacted with your link.
One of the most annoying aspects of Twitter is that you can’t interact with someone directly unless you send them a direct message or input their handle in a private tweet. Luckily, TweetChat changes all that. This handy app allows you to have private conversations without all that other annoying hassle.
This tool used by everyone from BuzzFeed, Rolling Stone, National Geographic, IBM, Expedia, and more.

Never again feel you’re lacking the support or systems you’ll need to build a nice side-business…
“Do not be misled. Bad associations spoil useful habits.” -1 Corinthians
“Friends are like your backbone. They are always there when you need support.”
Environment matters BIG TIME in predicting your chances of success.
(And increasing your happiness along your journey!)
*Who you’re around most of the time.
(We don’t always have full control of this. Yet read on.)
*Where you work.
*Events you attend. (Or don’t.)
Want to greatly increase your odds of breaking through?
Improve your environment the best you can. Get around more people and systems that believe in you and will fully support you \
You deserve that.
Here’s a fast way you can start…
People offline, our friends and family, they don’t always understand what we do. They don’t always get our entrepreneurial drive.
They’d assume we just give up and be “normal” just like them. But don’t to it!
Online, you CAN have a group of good souls that’ll have your back.
Also, changing your environment from time to time… Going to an event. Working from a swanky hotel for a day or two, whatever inspires you!
That can work wonders.
However, just know, whatever your day to day is right now, working from a coffee shop or in the corner of a spare bedroom, you can 100% do this.
Just need to apply the system. By taking daily “imperfect” action.
Perfection doesn’t exist. It’s just another form of procrastination.
Just start. Go.
Your brain will figure it all out on the way. But it won’t know all the answers before you begin.
Matt, who’s system I work with, started in the tiny corner of his spare bedroom. He was able to start from nothing and built a multi-million dollar business.
He’s passionate about growing his biz and supporting his partners and friends.
That’s why, as soon as you’ve signed up, you’re getting access to our online support group on Facebook.
===> I see my environment breeds success! I’m ready for the support and systems I need to achieve total financial independence!
After you’ve logged-in and have started…
You’ll have the opportunity to join our Masterminds throughout the year.
Matt recently bought a resort in Costa Rica just so his partners can meet up and create better incomes and lifestyles together.
Talk about an amazing environment that will support your success!!
If you’re able to ever go, I’d strongly recommend it. You can ask your coach about it as you’re going through the 21 Step System.
Big ole’ takeaway today?
Let it serve you. Not hold you down.
If you go to Clickbank or do a quick Google search for different make money online programs, be prepared to be overwhelmed.
There are literally over 10,000 courses and books on this topic.
And even though I haven’t seen them all; I’ve seen a lot of them. Most of them let you down. Not because their training isn’t good,
but because in many cases it’s incomplete. Instead of bringing you clarity, it ends up confusing you even more.
This is where most training products go wrong:
1.) You don’t get to talk to a real person when you take the training
When you’re sitting behind your computer going through a course, you’re going to have questions.
And there’s nothing worse than not being able to understand something you paid good money for, and having no one to speak to for further
If you have to go search for answers on Google, then you’re right back where you started; getting presented too much information you can’t
make sense of, and feeling overwhelmed.
2.) Everything is presented all at once
Think back to when you first went to school. Were you immediately presented with 10 or more years of lessons and textbooks at one time?
Of course not, that’d be ridiculous.
You were presented with one lesson at a time.
You had a teacher (I hope) who made sure you understood the current lesson before you were shown the next more advanced lesson.
This way you could understand the foundational concepts before learning the more advanced ones.
Here’s the thing; most people are not great self learners. If you present them with too many videos and lessons in one go, they get overwhelmed and confused.
They don’t know where to start, so often they are just paralyzed and remain stuck.
Because they are not getting any sense of progress along the way, they give up quickly.
Most online courses are like this. You pay the money, get some login details, and are then left to try and make sense of all the training.
In my opinion, the online marketing education world needs a huge shake.
We need to look at the most advanced learning techniques and apply them to our world, so the average person can make sense of all the
lessons and actually get results.
Information should not be presented all in one go; it should be presented in a way where the student can make sense of basic things first, because
being shown more advanced lessons.
3.) They don’t have a proven track record of success (how many people have taken the training, and got results with it?)
If you’re seeing the same generic testimonials for whatever course you’re buying on the sales page, that’s a good clue their training is outdated.
Personally I measure the effectiveness of a training program by how many success stories they’ve created, and how many of them are recent.
When it comes to business, universities like Harvard and Stanford are clearly effective training grounds; they are constantly churning out graduates who
go on to become titans in business and build enormous company’s.
The very best online training programs have also helped create many famous internet marketing gurus, and continue to do so.
4.) They want a lot of money upfront before you get to see any of the proper training
The best online training programs are the ones where the creator is able to make money on the success of the client’s who implement the training.
That way, they have a vested interest in seeing the clients do well, and, can charge less money upfront for access to the training. They earn their profits
when the clients also start earning.
In all of my searching, I’ve come across one truly great training program which covers all 4 of the above points.
With this one:
– you do get to talk to a real person (not just some sales rep, but a real coach who knows what they’re talking about)
– the training is presented one module at a time, so you’re learning in bite sized chunks of information rather than getting completely overwhelmed the first time you login
– the clients who’ve taken the training do have a proven track record of success. Over the past 4 years alone, they’ve been able to make a combined total of $67 million.
– you don’t need a lot of money to get started with the training. In fact, they don’t even ask for your credit card upfront – you can take the training for free.
All you have to do is watch this 17 minute video, and then apply at the end of it.
Take my word for it – I’ve been through this training and it really does give you everything you need to start earning online.

As a special treat for you, here is a link to a Forbes article outlining
Word-of-mouth is one of the most valuable forms of marketing as it has been shown to influence 20-50% of all purchasing decisions. People will take the recommendation of a person they know and trust over a corporate ad any day.
Moving beyond family and friends, influencer marketing has weaved its way into a highly sought out form of personal recommendation. To demonstrate this, 40% of Twitter users made a direct purchase because of an influencer’s tweet.
Influencer marketing is word-of-mouth for the digital age. Your company can use people with massive online followings to advertise your products on social media. Here’s a breakdown of influencer marketing and where to start.
What’s an influencer?
A social media influence is someone who leads in a specific niche and can use their following to market products of companies who share the same customer profile as their followers.
There are different types of influencers and more than one might work for your company. Understanding how these types of influencers attract a certain type of customer will help you choose which one is best for your brand.
Celebrities are the most popular choice when it comes to endorsements. Major celebrities promote different products that are gifted to them or things they truly love or Instagram or Twitter. Some celebrities eventually go on to become official partners of a brand to create limited edition products and collections.
Influencers don’t always have to have a big name. Bloggers are a good choice for an influencer because depending on their field, they may have established a level of authority and expertise. Bloggers with strong followings in health, fashion, or technology have potential to spike an increase in sales with just one promotional post.
Micro-influencers have become extremely popular over Instagram. These people aren’t necessarily famous; they just happen to have many followers interested in a specific topic or product to make them a potential partner for a brand.
You may have seen micro-influencers with followers in the hundred-thousand’s promoting herbal fit teas, nutritional supplements, or clothing brands.
How do I find an influencer?
A large social media can be compelling enough to sign someone as an influencer for your brand. Don’t be so quick to send them your products just yet.
Ask yourself the following questions when considering a potential social media influencer:
- Who are you trying to influence?
- Who do your target customers trust?
An ideal influencer for your brand will need to be relevant to your brand. Remember that they will be sharing your company’s content and developing a following based on the market you want to target.
Resonance amongst your audience is another important quality for your influencer to possess. The potential level of engagement that a person can create with your target audience is incredibly valuable to your brand.
The benefits of influencer marketing
With the right influencer, you can reach a very specific audience that is ideal for the product you’re selling. By finding an influencer who shares the same interests as your product, you can assume their followers are the same.
A good influencer will be selective in what they choose to promote by rejecting those products they feel their audiences won’t gravitate towards.
Influencers want to get something out of your partnership. By creating content that is relatable, engaging, and sharable, influencers are gaining just as much exposure as your product.
With this motivation, the potential to go viral in comparison to a paid ad is much more likely. Organic buzz from these instances is a great way to increase your follower count and build up your email and targeting lists.
Even when a social media post is clearly marked as sponsored content, an influencer provides authenticity to your brand. An influencer that makes your product relatable by weaving their own story into it will receive a genuine response from followers.
70% of consumer’s value online opinions even if they don’t know the person. Influencers offer a tangible, human aspect to your brand that people can connect with.
Influencer marketing is only increasing in market share. While there are many benefits to incorporating influencers into your marketing strategy, take care to choose a person who embodies your brand and can reach your ideal audience.

So I wanted to talk to you today about marketing high ticket programs online… When I started in internet marketing, the first thing I learned was affiliate marketing. Affiliate marketing is where you can promote someone’s product or service, and, you get paid a commission when that person buys.
What I loved about the business model was that it didn’t require that i have my own website, product, merchant accounts, or any of that stuff.All I had to do, was go and place ads. any time someone bought, I would get paid.
So I started off promoting low ticket items like eBooks. The problem was… they paid out low commissions. Lets say the eBook was $10, and I got a 50% commission, I would only make $5.
My goal was to get to $10,000 / month. And I realized that I would need to get 2,000 customers a month!!That’s about 500 per week, or, about 80 / day.
That’s a lot of work.
I then had the epiphany that if i was to instead promote programs that paid out bigger commissions – at $1,000 / transaction, I could reach my goal MUCH faster.I would only need to be able to find just 10 customers a month.What do you think is harder? Finding 2000 customers, or finding 10? Exactly.
So, I started looking around at different affiliate programs. And that when I came across MTTB… With MTTB, they actually paid out $1,250 right up to $10,000 / transaction.
When I first heard about it, I was fascinated. But I was also very, very skeptical. I’d never heard of a program that paid such big commissions – it sounded too good to be true.
So I bought it for $49, knowing that if it didn’t work out, I could get a full refund. Within 8 hours, my MTTB phone coach was calling me back, and ready to get me started.They opened up Step 1 of the program, and started explaining how the business model worked.
Every 2 days, my coach touched base with me, and made sure that I understood what I was learning.So that’s how I now know that the program is legitimate. Anyway, this week I’m looking to work with 3 clients 1-on-1, and help get them started with the same coaching program.
You can get it HERE.
After paying the application fee, do me a favor and , and let me know you’re ready to begin!
I wanted to send you a quick note about what I think might be the most exciting AND useful book you’ll read this year.
It explains a simple, but powerful idea…
What if you could make a FULL-TIME income, working part-time, anywhere in the world.
Think about that.
With just a computer, a wifi connection, and a desire to succeed, you could make more money than the average lawyer while only working three or four hours a day.
Sounds a bit outrageous, but once you read this book, you’ll understand how it’s possible.
I’m talking about…
* How to make $500… $1,200… or even $5,500 commissions while travelling the world…
* How to escape the 9-to-5 once and for all and say goodbye to your boss…
* How to take advantage of the ‘new economy’ in 2017 and finally start making money on your own terms…
And a proven system for getting out of the rat-race and making hundreds of thousands of dollars online.
As I said before, I think this book could be the most important thing you read this year.
