    When niching down, how narrow is too narrow?

    MARKETING 
    I think the basic premise is that the "riches are in the niches". Where the more niched you are, the more appealing the services you offer are to your target audience, and thus the higher the potential profits you can make. In that sense, I agree. Here's a classic example. If you wanted someone...

    How to get rid of this issue?

    IDEA 
    I think what Kak is trying to say is that the freelancing market can be commoditised. So the solution is to offer value based services. Whearas everyone is solving for example, 10 problems, you should aim to solve 50 or more to be valued and hired by the clients. You can send a hundred...

    Dummy Guide To VALUE: Craft Million Dollar Offers And Great Relationships (Alex Hormozi: The 100 Million Dollar Man)

    MARKETING EXECUTION 
    Apologies, I haven't read most if any of those books, so pardon my ignorance. Reading what you said carefully leads me to believe "Positioning" boils down to Dream outcome + Inherent value upgrade + Walks and talks differently from marketplace offers (new form) or Action to justify Inherent...

    Dummy Guide To VALUE: Craft Million Dollar Offers And Great Relationships (Alex Hormozi: The 100 Million Dollar Man)

    MARKETING EXECUTION 
    "Find an underserved market (Starving crowd). Solve their problems." About this part I do want to chip in a bit more about it. In the context of the guide, perhaps it's just finding all the steps your customer will take with your offer, and solving problems of those steps no one else is...

    Dummy Guide To VALUE: Craft Million Dollar Offers And Great Relationships (Alex Hormozi: The 100 Million Dollar Man)

    MARKETING EXECUTION 
    Nah I agree, coherency definitely needs more work, I think it turned out this way because I wrote it in notes form as a kind of quick checklist for product launches. The book and videos he publishes definitely fills in the gaps (acquisition Alex website), and for those new to this I recommend...

    Dummy Guide To VALUE: Craft Million Dollar Offers And Great Relationships (Alex Hormozi: The 100 Million Dollar Man)

    MARKETING EXECUTION 
    Above All Else… Provide Relative Value. Relative To The Market. Value is helping me move me from point A (Inferno), to point B (Heaven) which I care to be at (Desired Outcome). Introduction And Thanks (You Can Skip This) I wish to start by saying, Hello! My name's Edgar and I'm an avid scribe...

    Ecommerce Vs Agency Vs Freelancing As A Beginner

    Konichiwa! I've never done a proper intro before so here goes... When I was 16, I was introduced to the concept of financial freedom by Hector Quintalla and my friend, the drop shipper. With that initial spark, I went on to read many financial books and stumbled upon the Millionaire Fastlane...

    Writing proposals and how to Advertise your startup agency

    Hey James! Can't offer advice on the proposals, but if you're looking for a freelancer platform that will allow you to register as an agency, Upwork is available. Don't know if Fiverr offers that option though. Best of luck though!

    EXECUTION 
    Hehe, looking forward to this! I'd reckon it'd be possible to buy some other data scientists a drink in return for telling you how to become a great data scientist in the shortest amount of time? XD And meet with aspiring data scientists over forums and facebook groups to find their concerns...

    Which book i should read? (14 yo)

    INTRO 
    Hey Prince! After, reading Unscripted, and preferably the Great Rat Race Escape. You'll need a specialised skill that you can monetise. There's a bunch of them out there, but I'd imagine you can't physically go out much? (That's how it was for me anyway). If so, learning an online skill you...

    How Do You Become Aware of Your Own Limiting Beliefs and How Do You Overcome Them?

    MINDSET 
    Lex, thank you! Sometimes, you know what the problem is because someone tells you and then you can go solve it somehow. But asking how, allows you to 'define' the actual problem. To know where you need to start. Another great piece to add to my problem solving arsenal :)

    Thoughts on Specialized Skill to learn.

    HOT! SIDE HUSTLE 
    I've read about some people doing $100K alone on Upwork with their copywriting skills (Case in point: Lex). You'll probably find people in other fields making that amount on the platform. Most freelancers on there that earn low pay do two thing wrong: 1. They devalue themselves 2. They don't...

    New To Blogging Some Advice

    SIDE HUSTLE 
    I'd totally recommend using Grammarly. They have a free tool you can install to check your texts for errors, haven't tested the pro version yet though. Combine it with this grammar checker - Online Editor – Grammar Checker (Free) And you're golden on typos! Though, if you don't have the time...

    Conquered Freelancing, Let's See How I Do Scaling an Agency

    EXECUTION 
    Let's GOOOOO If you're building through Linkedin, it might help to boost your domain authority so others see you as an expert. Andy put it like this... To become known for xyz... 1. Post content on xyz 2. Help someone with xyz 3. Be seen helping someone with xyz Doing this might help gain you...

    I left my job; now I need to build a business

    INTRO 
    It definitely looks like freelancing is the way to go. Andy's right, can you outsource your services to platforms like Upwork? And overdeliver enough to charge a premium? If you can do that you can then use that capital to invest in a business.

    Conquered Freelancing, Let's See How I Do Scaling an Agency

    EXECUTION 
    There's a certain appraoch Black Dragon taught to get connects that worked amazing for me. When I tried it, 18/20 digital marketers connected and we're all very happy that I did. It goes like this, "Hey Johnny Bravo, saw your profile and thought it would be cool to connect with a successful...

    Progression of a 17 year old

    HOT! MINDSET 
    Take it slow man, and heal up. Nice work starting on Upwork and here's to great things to come! Sorry about the agency not paying, I know at first it was an unpaid internship but didn't you clear it up with them the amount they would be paying you for a month's work? If you're copywriting and...

    How many action fakes can the fastlane come up with??

    E-commerce: $100k in one hour

    NOTABLE! MARKETING 
    If I may add, kopywriting Kourse (Who wrote emails for AppSumo) once highlighted you should write 70% value, 30% sell at the very least for an effective email campaign. I've found the AIDA template to be of great use to achieve that. And Recommend this article in demonstrating a value first...
