“Showing You HOW to Make a LOT More Money Doing What You Love!

Recently I was prepping my materials and PowerPoint for my Speaker Success Bootcamp and it reminded me to bring this to your attention and ask you about Virtual Trainings and Courses…

  • Do you have them? Host them?
  • Want to hold some?
  • Think you could make a lot more residual income if you did host them?
  • Do you attend them or buy them yourself?
  • All good questions right?

I think we all want to find some residual income streams, am I right?

There’s some easy business models that fit the bill for this such as:

  • Affiliate Marketing (making money referring programs, products, systems and technology) – I make a few hundred dollars a month right now using affiliate marketing. Some of my friends make thousands each month; it’s a much bigger strategy for them.
  • Membership Programs (having people pay you a monthly fee to get recurring training or knowledge of some sort from you) – I’m inching up with my Int’l Entrepreneur Network now for this, at $7/month, you can make a nice bit of cash each month if you can get a few hundred people (or even a few thousand!). It’s not as easy as it sounds however.
  • Then there’s creating and running virtual or online training programs, perhaps doing them over and over again live OR boxing them up into Home Study Programs or Courses after you do them live. I have a few of those and I’m actually thinking of bringing some LIVE trainings back this year and next year.
    I’d love to hear your thoughts about a few of the programs that could help you jumpstart your business this year? I created a quick poll on Facebook. Will you go take the poll for me?? I’d really appreciate your input.

Here’s a quick tip about creating Virtual Programs:

FIRST: Figure out which type of program will fit YOU, Your Lifestyle, Your Personality and Your Clients.

That means, brainstorm about and determine if you should host an ongoing program, or what I call a “start/stop program” that has a specific start date and end date (could be more difficult to fill on time if you’re new to this). Do you want a short term (3-6 week) or longer term program (90 days)? Do you like the 30 day challenge model with daily interaction? The decision is yours however you want to decide carefully based on many factors:

  • How you like to deliver
  • How your clients like to attend or consume info
  • How likely it is that you have hot prospects
  • Price you want to charge
    • Will this be a lower priced offering to get people to “try you out” or a deeper, more comprehensive training farther down your “funnel” and more expensive?

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible but you have to make time to implement this stuff.

YOU can do this and I can help!! 😉

“Showing You HOW to Make a LOT More Money Doing What You Love!

Catch this Facebook Live with me and my friend PeggyLee Hanson! PeggyLee is one of the speakers at my 2019 Speaker Success Bootcamp this week. On this video we are sharing all about book publishing, being an author, compilation books, speaking… it’s all so vital to being a true expert in your industry!
Get tips for what to write, how to publish and Kindle publishing needs!
One thing we talked a lot about is the FORMATTING of your ebook or print book.

Formatting your book or ebook correctly is absolutely vital to having it read or purchased and especially to getting RAVE REVIEWS!

No reader likes a poorly formatted book or one that’s hard to navigate without easy online click to chapter links for example with ebooks.
The visual experience of your book is something to spend a little time and money on for sure.

Here are a few formatting tips for ebooks:

  1. Make the content easy to read, meaning use words most people use and write like you talk perhaps
  2. Put bulletpoints in and paragraph breaks often so it’s not just paragraph after paragraph of content
  3. Make it easy to click to each chapter from within the Table of Contents
  4. Be careful adding too many pictures, it will make your file very large and not as easily downloadable for users, most ebook readers prefer text only
  5. Add links to pages in your website for easy clicking and opting in for free stuff!
Here are a few formatting tips for print books:
  1. Have enough white space so the text isn’t all crunched together please, that’s just annoying
  2. Have easy to scan copy with lots of smaller paragraphs just like in the ebooks, bulletpoints, numbers perhaps if you’re sharing steps to something and even pictures I think. 
  3. Pictures will add pages to your book if you haven’t written something very long or if you want to spread out the copy a bit. Be careful using pictures that are only good if used in color, color is VERY EXPENSIVE to print in a book! Think about adding a color version to your book on your website perhaps if the pictures really are better in color, then you can link to it from your chapters and also hopefully get people on your email list!
  4. Please remember to drive people to your website whatever you do… add in things perhaps like “Action Steps” at the end of each chapter, or a “Book Resources Download Page” for audios, video content and more. 
  5. Use a header and footer for your pages, it can change for left or right sided pages also so you can alternate what’s on those, but use that space to include your business name, website or title of your book even. 
Want to become an author easier too in 2019? Contact either PeggyLee or myself to help you write your own book OR Check out both of our compilation book opportunities and let US do the work for you in getting published in the next year or so…

Summer Fun

Jason, Riley and I just returned from a week in S. California where we went to Disneyland, California Adventure and 3 different beaches. It was a really fun week, but I’m pretty exhausted this weekend, my body wasn’t used to that much walking around.

Do you know that Riley has a FitBit and calculated that on Father’s Day, Sunday, when we were at Disneyland… we took 26,000 steps?!?! We walked 12 miles that day alone and OMG did we feel it. Thank goodness for the (water rides LOL pic) and the hot tub in the condo pool area, that thing got a LOT of use!

I hope you’re having a fun start to your summer also? I’d love to hear what you’re up to or where you’re going?

I have clients in Spain right now, some have gone to Hawaii, others on cruises… vacations are so important to take when you’re an entrepreneur. We work really hard and we deserve it. If you haven’t planned one in a while or don’t have a vacation on the books of some sort for this year, I urge you to plan something, even a long weekend getaway somewhere. Anything you can look forward to and / or reward yourself with is something you totally deserve.

Streamlining, systematizing and delegating more in your business can allow you more free time, vacation time and self-care or family time you know. It is possible but you have to make time to implement this stuff.

YOU can do this and I can help!! 😉
