    Getting Leads but no sales? Need advice!

    MARKETING 
    Alright, well here's a quick update: I picked up a job pretty quick to cover my monthly payments, but after a week or two I decided to get back into bartending. I'll easily be able to cover my monthly expenses and have more to invest towards my business with working just 2 or 3 days a week...

    Getting Leads but no sales? Need advice!

    MARKETING 
    Well technically it's not selling at 47$ YET. lol. As a novice mistake, I've priced it too low and it's selling at 24.95. I'll fix this after my pre-launch phase ends at the end of this week. I do plan on selling another high ticket item after this. I already have a general idea of what it's...

    Getting Leads but no sales? Need advice!

    MARKETING 
    Okay gotcha, so just keep testing and testing and testing. I currently have a descent amount of swipe files I can work off of to create new ads so this shouldn't be a problem. Thanks for the resources! I've already looked through most of those and have also read books such as Cashvertising...

    Getting Leads but no sales? Need advice!

    MARKETING 
    As an update: This is the third day running ads, and I just made my second sale. Seeing how people are still buying with no reviews, I think this is a good sign. I've handed out my book to a few friends and relatives for reviews, but tbh I can't bank on them because I know they're going to...

    WIX vs Having a professional create a website

    HOT! 
    You're always going to teeter-totter a bit from having total control of everything on the website & having a longer learning curve on one side of the spectrum to having less control of the side & having a shorter learning curve on the other. That being said, wordpress still isn't very difficult...

    MARKETING 
    Thanks a lot for your input!! I really can't thank you enough, this whole day I was teeter-tottering on the idea of scrapping the whole thing and starting a new business again. I think you might of hit the nail on the head with this, I've only set up one ad ATM for testing purposes, so it looks...

    Getting Leads but no sales? Need advice!

    MARKETING 
    Hi there. Here's a little background about me: After getting fanatically into copywrting by reading a few of Gary Halbert's books, I quit my job (while getting fired from the other for... having the other job...), I ran full force into starting an info-product business. Long story short, a...

    Post Your Desk or Work Area! (The Workspace Thread)

    MINDSET FEATURED! 
    Fun thread! Multiple monitors definitely help when you're working on the web development stuff--although I have to admit, I probably would have been fine without the third external monitor... But hey, whatever. Once you get used to more work space, it's hard to go back~

    Motivation & Does The Early Bird Catch The Worm?

    MINDSET 
    +2 agree. I've experimented a lot with sleep, and what I found really matters is being consistent with it. (I.E. Sleeping and waking at the same times... I've also suffered from terrible sleeping habits). But as of now my most productive hours are 6PM-2AM, only because I've been consistent...

    Getting some Money from MLM but Still Struggling!

    I've dipped my feet in MLM's during my naive, younger years for a good 2-3 years of my life. The only thing I wish I would of done was get out of it sooner and work towards creating a real business like I'm doing now. I have an aunt that still grinds in the same MLM company I left, and while...

    How to deal with burn out? Am I just being a b*tch?

    I completely understand where you're coming from. Sometimes I get so lost in trying to get the project finished as quickly as possible that all I think about is "Get this Ad up by xxx" or get "xx pages done by xx" that I forget to enjoy the process. And that's when my writing starts to get...

    How to deal with burn out? Am I just being a b*tch?

    Oh yeah forsure, just as a fun hobby. I'd probably use it to learn a little SEO on the side, hone my craft at writing, and give a little variety into my routine. I've found that in the toughest writer's blocks, the best way to overcome it was to bring back joy and excitement into writing again...

    How to deal with burn out? Am I just being a b*tch?

    I am 100%, without a doubt delegating some of the work next time around. I just wanted to know the in's-and-out's of the process of putting out a product in the market place and I thought the best way to do that would be to do everything yourself for the first time around (which IMO, I think is...

    Calling All Salesman (Advice Needed!)

    EXECUTION 
    I was in insurance sales at the age of 19, trying to sell life insurance to 50-65 year olds. I did that for 3 years, and it was the most valuable asset I've learned, even until this day. I don't know about where you currently reside, but here, you don't need a college degree to get into...

    Should I do THIS before testing?

    Your first time validating the idea will take the longest because you have to learn everything (landing pages, marketing, minimum viable product, how to throw up ads, etc.), but once you get through it the first time it'll be easier because you'll already have the skill set. But I agree...

    How to deal with burn out? Am I just being a b*tch?

    Wow, thanks for the amazing responses! I'm glad I wasn't the only one experiencing mental fatigue, it's always a pleasure to receive insights from others. :innocent: :halo: I'm also glad to hear that there's a good number of athletes on here. I'm into powerlifting myself, so I can understand...

    How to deal with burn out? Am I just being a b*tch?

    So working on my 5th and final revision of my first ebook (70k+ words) for the past 6-8 months, I have a couple days where I can't get anything done no matter how hard I try, and even if I do, the quality is subpar... So I've been thinking... Is it just all in my head? Is it something I can...

    STEP ONE - ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS

    Also chose to get sober from all alcohol and drugs 3 years back, and ever since then my work ethic towards the things I've wanted to succeed in has exploded. (Putting a product out in the market place REALLY soon, built a physique that 95% of people will never achieve, and I've gotten much...

    Writing my first book

    PUBLISHING 
    Nice progress! I'm also on my final revision of a 70k+ word book. How much did they quote you for the edit BTW? I'm also pretty curious on the print-on-demand, I'll most likely be going that direction too down the road.

    Character Traits of a Successful Fastlaner

    MINDSET 
    This is awesome stuff. I'm always interested in how other's do things to compare. Everyone has different things they want and need, and their own internal motivational system is no different. :thumbsup::thumbsup: I myself use time. Time + work = success in any area. The more work, is the...
