  1. OFF-TOPIC This Is Upsetting

    Sure, everyone around the world "wants" to earn more. But you can't just ignore economic realities. This race to the bottom with prices is an inevitable outcome of globalization. There is always someone who can do the same thing cheaper than you. This is the flip-side of any kind of work...
  2. OFF-TOPIC This Is Upsetting

    Don't see how this is a problem. Someone, somewhere will be happy for this "opportunity". As one of the previous posts mentions, think of countries with an average salary of $200. Now take someone there with little experience. At a rate of $4/hour and a 40 hour work week he or she would...
  3. Somebody Sell Me on "Fastlane Insiders"

    Actually, I don't even understand why you "have to" join the insiders now. There is a ton of value in the free part of the forum. If you are sceptical, then just stick around the free part... Whenever you are really hungry for more, you can still upgrade. And then those few $ will probably will...
  4. GOLD! Blogging for Profit (With Legendary GOLD Follow Up Posts)

    Allow me to add to this thread from the perspective of somebody who has been blogging for many years with the wrong mindset, resulting in making hardly any money at all. I STILL have the wrong mindset. And I am STILL struggling, so I am not trying to pretend to be an expert here. Just sharing...
  5. Knowing when to keep pushing vs knowing when to stop

    Seth Godin wrote a book exclusively dedicated to answering this question. It's titled "The Dip".
  6. Need feedback and giveaway

    I think it would be difficult at this point to get such a client. What is more realistic is, perhaps, to offer only editing work. The restaurant would send the footage and you would make a nice ad out of it. For practicing contact with real clients, this could be a way forward.
  7. Quora as a marketing channel, anyone?

    Not that I have used it as a marketing channel successfully myself (or really tried for that matter - I've always preferred Medium.com). But I used to read a lot of content by "Nicolas Cole", a writer who has essentially started his writing career on Quora. Today, he has somewhere around 30...
  8. How would your ideal social media management and marketing tool look like? Go crazy!

    Sorry, it seems that I misunderstood your question. I guess you were talking more about tools like Hootsuite, TweetDeck etc., huh? I don't use any of these. Whenever I try to do that, it feels too 'automated' and audiences immediately get that you're just posting automatically synchronised...
  9. How would your ideal social media management and marketing tool look like? Go crazy!

    A tool that would allow me to do my marketing via blog posts. So, a website that allows anybody to contribute blog posts and has a huge in-built audience (which does exist in the form of Medium). But, one huge difference to Medium: Instead of discouraging people from using the website as a...
  10. EXECUTION The Zero Campaign

    Haha, point taken. Well... in a way you could say that. You are wasting your time tinkering away on a product that nobody wants. And then another product. And then another one. Before you know it, you are so old that you are going to die soon. You've wasted your lifetime all the way until death.
  11. BOOK Books on sales funnels?

    Yep, I have the feeling I won't find anything like that. If there was something, it'd probably already be the first result on Amazon, anyways. Yeah, I guess you have to spend lots of money if you want something valuable ala Traffic blackbook 2.0. Courses on Udemy were kind of basic from what...
  12. EXECUTION The Zero Campaign

    Have you validated any need for this? (i.e. have you found people who are willing to pay for it?) For example - have you run a pre-sales campaign on a landing page asking people to buy? From what I've seen so far, you seem to be exclusively focused on product development/the technical side of...
  13. BOOK Books on sales funnels?

    Jason's thread was very helpful. Thanks for pointing me there!
  14. BOOK Books on sales funnels?

    I have read his book DotCom Secrets and the other one as well - Expert Secrets. They were the best one's I've read so far, but still not that practical. I am looking more for something step by step. Something that goes deeper into the different technology solutions and how to apply them one by...
  15. BOOK Books on sales funnels?

    Yes, I might do that if there is a really good one that I get recommended/for which I am sure that it is helpful. Otherwise, not really my thing. Watching video takes too long IMO (it's not very time efficient).
  16. BOOK Books on sales funnels?

    Hi guys, For a while now, I've been looking for a great book on building online sales funnels. So far, I haven't found anything that was really helpful & practical. I mean, like an actual step-by-step guide on making it work. Most books seem to remain quite vague, probably with the goal of...
  17. How far did you go without any employee?

    I thought that this book might interest you: The Million-Dollar, One Person Business: Make Great Money. Work the Way You Like. Have the Life You Want. It is primarily a compilation of case studies of businesses that make over $1 million per year in revenue and are run by the founder alone (+...
  18. INTRO 5 years of trying to make a living blogging

    Thanks! Right now, my problem is more of a: What market am I serving? What problem am I solving? What solution am I offering? - kind of problem. I've got traffic (not huge traffic, but it's workable) and I've got readers. I am not planning to go into the route of affiliate...
  19. INTRO 5 years of trying to make a living blogging

    I used to be blogging on my own owned blog then switched to Medium due to increased traffic. Obviously, looking back, big mistake as you don't 'own' the site. Medium recently changed its algorithm and my traffic per article is down to a third of what it used to be. Now I'll slowly switch...
  20. INTRO 5 years of trying to make a living blogging

    Hi everyone, So, my name is Tim. I am 26 years old and from Germany. I've been (unsuccessfully) trying to make a living blogging for about 5 years. At the time, I discovered blogging and immediately fell in love with it. In the meantime, I got involved in different businesses, but somehow...
