    FORUM NEWS The Fastlane Forum Job Board?

    Big fan of the idea. If possible, a kudos/commendation system could be put into place so people can vouch for skillsets. Kind of like how LinkedIn. Also, I like the idea of either making people have a certain number of posts before posting or applying or have a number of reactions now that...

    The road to wealth is simple: Drive a crappy car

    I've only owned 1 car and still drive it, a '05 Cadillac STS. Still drives well and doesn't look like it's 15 years old. Took out a loan in my last 2 years in the military and made sure to pay it off before I exited. I remember setting up auto payments, forgetting I set up auto payments, then...

    Stop pushing and get a productocracy!

    Your example portrays sales is trying to push your product into your potential customer's hands no matter what. "If you were really good at sales, you could probably sell her a heat lamp and tell her if she simply shakes her head under the lamp, her hair will dry." That's not sales, that's...

    Stop pushing and get a productocracy!

    The point of sales isn't to weasel your customer into something they don't want or need. You can't just "tl;dr" years of process into one sentence. If it was as easy as that, we'd all be billionaires.

    EXECUTION Building Architecture B2B & B2C Service

    Things have been up and down this month. The down, first. I asked for feedback from the B2B side...not looking good. We just aren't well known enough to be a decent option for businesses. So I'm toning down the outreach and letting that go organic for a bit. The plus side is focusing on the...

    INTRO I'm going to be honest... I really don't care.

    This will be a pleasant few weeks of you posting before being put on the ignore list of everyone and never returning.

    EXECUTION Building Architecture B2B & B2C Service

    May So I'm happy with the progress made last month. Put a few more things in motion, primarily a demo/free download version of the template created as a lead magnet, then wrote up an email sequence that goes out to people that download (the paid or free version). 1st email is a link to 3 posts...

    EXECUTION Building Architecture B2B & B2C Service

    Used GTMetrix to figure out what was slowing down my site, and started implementing changes. The good news: it about halved my site speed. The bad news: people couldn't log in or sign up because of the cache interfering. Figured out what I messed up just in time this evening because 15 minutes...

    EXECUTION Job Website Created… Now it’s time to grow it!

    I know Indeed has an affiliate program you can use and they also have the option to import jobs and showcase them on your website. You could display those on a given job title's page & geotarget via IP address. Eventually, you could move into creating your own job board. That's going to be...

    Protecting Design Idea

    To be completely honest, you're fighting an uphill battle trying to protect your print-on-demand IP. You're in a spot where if you start selling a lot of one design, the scavengers will come out and copy it. It's copyrighted or trademarked? They'll change enough to get around that.

    My perspective on Marketing

    Excellent post! If you want a great case study on this, check out Casper. They're the mattress company. But they consider themselves a media company first. Instead of trying to run expensive ad campaigns, they created a satellite website all about sleep and answering any question possible...

    Huawei : How lack of Control hits hard on a bigger scale.

    On the flipside, and possibly playing devil's advocate against the hivemind, more like how you should IGNORE control as far as CENTS go because you won't have 100% control depending on how far you want to go down the rabbit hole. You're trying to compare multi-billion dollar companies to...

    Practicing sales without being in sales

    A good way to practice sales is to try to sell. No amount of reading or roleplaying is going to be worth actually getting stumped by an objection on the phone and figuring out the correct way to answer the next time it comes up. Because it will come up again. It's usually something obscure and...

    EXECUTION Building Architecture B2B & B2C Service

    So I'm sort of in a limbo state, the desert of desertion so to speak. Waiting for marketing initiatives to have enough data to tell if they're working, scalable, etc. Not giving up, the actual work has slowed to where I don't feel like I'm doing enough in a day/week. So I downloaded the Adobe...

    Running blogs, ranking pages via SEO

    Here's the thing with SEO, everyone's experiences are different because no one truly knows what's under the hood. I can only speak from what I've experienced. If you're writing more personal pieces and people are expecting you to post Mondays and Thursdays, keep that schedule going. If you...
