Today, I wanted to talk to you today about something I find to be a “new” approach to investing and in my opinion is better than the traditional avenues to invest in.
When a certain “social network” went public with its stock, there was a lot of unrest among investors. What was by many people’s estimations, a “sure shot”, quickly got people scrambling in worry that maybe it was anything but.
The company’s stock dropped very noticeably during the first weeks after its IPO.
Most investors don’t like it when that happens.
What investors like is to make money from their investments. Pure and simple. Most are pleased if they get a 10% return on their money over time.
But, I now some people who would be EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED with that kind of return.
That’s because they’ve discovered a different way to invest. And:
• It has nothing to do with stocks.
• It has nothing to do with bonds.
• It has nothing to do with mutual funds.
• It has nothing to do with real estate.
• It has nothing to do with CDs or money market accounts.
Instead, it’s all about investing in internet marketing (IM), or what some call IMvesting.
The idea is simple: spend money on internet marketing related assets that give much better returns (100%, 200% or even more).
This has been my approach for the last several years and instead of losing big during the “Great Recession” my returns have been in the green!
Get all the details at:
People ask me all the time how I got started with Internet Marketing and I tell them that there were two things. One, I wanted a way to take my knowledge and expand it using the web and second, it fulfilled a way for me to create passive income.
The response that I usually get from people after I tell them this, is that they want to start a membership site and want to know how to get started. So, I decided t write a short series of posts describing to you how to get your own membership site up and running.
So you want to start a membership site.
The first thing you need to think about is your niche and your topic.
Now think about this for a moment…
Your goal is to get members to happily pay you month after month for content. Obviously, that means you need to:
But here’s something else…
In order to get your members paying month after month, you need to be able to make them look forward to each upcoming lesson. And the best way to do that is by creating a membership site around a step-by-step process. That is, your lessons teach your members how to achieve a specific result.
You see, if you just provide tips and tricks for your members, there’s no sense of continuity. Your members don’t develop as strong of a psychological commitment to staying a member, because they won’t have a need to see the course through until the end.
Now imagine having numbered steps and lessons instead. When someone is receiving lesson 10 of a step-by-step process, they’ve made an investment of time and money into learning the process – so they are less likely to “bail” before they’ve received all the steps.
Let me give you a few examples of sites that teach a specific achievement or result using a step-by-step process:
Now let me give you an example of what a 12-week online marketing course might look like:
Step 1: Choose a niche.
Step 2: Market research.
Step 3: Plan your sales funnel.
Step 4: Get a domain and hosting.
Step 5: Get an autoresponder.
Step 6: Write your autoresponder messages.
Step 7: Create a squeeze page.
Step 8: DIY product creation – research and outline.
Step 9: DIY product creation – creating and polishing the product.
Step 10: Create a sales letter.
Step 11: Drive traffic – free methods
Step 12: Drive traffic – paid methods.
Notice how each step builds on the previous step.
It starts with a member not even having an idea for a niche… and ends with the member driving traffic to a sales letter and making money.
In other words, if the member completes the steps as the course progresses, he or she should be able to enjoy a specific achievement or result by the end of the course.
Note: The above example is a 12-week course. Naturally, you could easily stretch this out to a year or more by creating more steps and more in-depth steps. You could go on indefinitely as long as you kept providing more advanced info as the course progressed.
One final tip…
To keep your customers happy, make sure that they are progressing and enjoying results right from the beginning.
Example: If you create a yearlong course, don’t stretch out the process for a year. Instead, give the step-by-step instructions your customers need to experience some type of results immediately (within a few weeks or month after joining) and then provide more in-depth instructions as the course progresses.
In short: Satisfy your customers’ needs for instant gratification while still providing the continuity that will keep them as a member. You’ll learn more about that in Part 2 of this series.

Now, I will be the first to admit that this is my fault because I sign up for everyone’s “free report!” Well, if you are also like me you probably check the box next to the emails you want to delete and throw them in the trash with out reading them.So this brings me to my point today, and that is as more and more small business try to use internet marketing as a way to connect with customers how do you prevent a client from deleting your email without ever reading it? The answer is email filtering!
As I mentioned above I get a ton of emails from businesses and people all day and everyday. It really became overwhelming until, I started using an email filtering system.

This has been a great productivity and time saver for me because I only look at the priority mail first and save the other mail for a later time or day to look at, but how do you get your customers to make your emails a priority?
In order to maximize your emails and get your customers to filter you into their priority inbox you need to do several things and in order to better understand the strategies fully take a look at this article from Aweber’s help center on “How to get your emails filetered.” Now, regardless if you use Aweber or not this article is helpful in giving you some simple tips to get your clients to filter your emails and put you on their priority list.
