Shameless self-promotion, woohoo!

Hopefully this video helps some users out there: How to calculate your Customer Lifetime Value


I've been trying to help people with my new channel and this one is aimed at ecom store owners. I think a lot of beginners have no idea about accounting/finances for their ecom store and so I'm making a playlist of videos like this one that show people how to calculate all their profits, expenses, financial statements, etc. I think it's incredibly useful, especially when the people selling the $1997 courses just focus on screenshots of revenue/sales of their stores and case studies rather than the actual profit. Like with any business, they are run by the numbers - you can have an amazing product but if your cash flow is shot and you're bleeding out with massive overheads, you won't last long.

Also, I didn't realise you had so many whiteboard animation videos. Very nice. I like that you've written a script, narrated it, and someone else has created a video out of it.

Considering this is a time a lot of people need to make ends meet right away, my short 35-page MTurk guide book can help get some money daily.

This isn't some random mysterious "system" book, and no it won't make you rich. It is a practical step by step guide on how any US resident can start making a little money efficiently and daily on Amazon's Mechanical Turk. Simply by completing simple tasks posted by major companies and individuals. Amazon, Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, Ivy League colleges and such all post tasks on there daily.

It's simple for anyone to sign up, so that's not the actual value of this book. The book teaches the digital tools and approach required to actually make more than a few bucks daily.

I didn't write this as a cash grab, or some "corona make money at home" thing. I put this together just before the current happenings, but only recently published it. It is written with ten years of experience, using the platform to make a side income, which I typically channel into my fastlane pursuits.

I have written this for the US demographic, as other countries might have limited options with this.

Anyway, to keep this from getting unnecessarily long, here is a link to the book's simple landing page.

MTurk Money - Step by Step to Making Money Efficiently on Amazon's Mechanical Turk.

It is published at $19.99, but I'm offering a 50% off coupon to the Fastlane community.
Coupon: FASTLANE50

You could possibly make the purchase price back, on the same day you sign up.

Special Circumstances Offer: If due to the ongoing lockdowns and issues, you can't afford the $9.99 (after coupon), and are in real need of a way to start earning something as soon as possible, feel free to send me a PM. I will be happy to offer you a coupon to mark it down to $1. No single string attached.

Thanks for the opportunity, @MJ DeMarco

Looking for a belt that lasts?

3337033371

Made in our shop in Lancaster PA, this belt is made with the same materials that are used for Harness horse driving and racing harnesses!

The Heavy Gun Belt is strong enough to pull a carriage (and probably a car) up the steep hills of Lancaster county/chester county area and will definitely be strong enough to hold up your pants!

I set this website up (mostly) today, and need feedback, head on over and let me know what you think!

And I'm willing to sell at little profit to get you motivated to critique the website, here is a link with 50% off :)

Local Made belts, made to last!

Ok, here we go! :) (Thanks MJ!)

For the last 5 years Ive been helping people of all ages, sizes and abilities lose fat and transform their physiques!

My gym has produced hundreds of World class body transformations and we now have launched our proven nutrition and training system online.

You can see all about our online program here: www.gymbodyonline.com

We have a really good webinar on the site called "Why Most Body Transformations Fail" (see attached image)

On our website we also have some short videos explaining why we do things differently to the normal "fitness gurus" out there!

Our main goal is total transparency for our potential and current clients, and a healthy sustainable approach to creating World class transformations.

Thanks
Brian

This is probably the most value-packed videos we have done so far.

Here are a few things we have covered in this:

We have shown how we can come up with better angles, creatives, and offers to market an existing winner.
I have also discussed a behavioral retargeting sequence which is not based around discount and offers like free shipping.
And a way to find new products within minutes by using existing winners.
And much more:

Been working on these two brands in the last couple of years and now could use a little more exposure with social events non-existent in Toronto, Canada. Not sure if this improves the SEO in any way but I'll take any little advantage at the moment :)

Fastlane entrepreneurship is awesome, but surely also full of challenges & stress.

Take a break, watch these 2 videos, break out some laughter, & they'll likely even bring you some fresh ideas! ;)

Why not leave a backlink to one of the most crappy websites on the internet?

LeanyLabs is doing custom web application development for startups. Not wasting time on our own website ;).

Most recently baked project, WeatherMan, went live on the previous week. Still in development. Please help it get more traffic, the client would be very happy.

Most technically challenging so far is Aspecto, they aim to help other tech companies with complex microservice architectures to keep everything smooth, up, and running. It's still in closed beta and rapid development, although some of the big initial customers are using it in production already. It processes around 3Gb of data in an hour so far, and that's just 1% of the traffic. Architecture is designed to scale like crazy cause it would have to handle 3x more load than it's clients to do the job.

Most successful so far is PlayBuzz. Technically it's not our project, just two of our co-founders were leading it in a different, lager outsourcing company. One was that company's Javascript competency lead and another one was Team Lead on that project. Still in good relationships with the client team.

I can't disclose others, unfortunately.

I'm new here and I'm not sure if this was discussed already or not, but I have a suggestion related to members that are starting on youtube like @Phikey. Let's have a dedicated thread for youtubers where beside feedback we help them have at least 1000 subs (for monetisation) and give them likes and watch videos because this way the youtube algorithm will definitely push them higher and faster. What do you guys think? I'm gonna do my part, right now.

Hey Fastlaner,

Are you struggling to improve your sales funnel’s conversion rates?

My direct response agency and I have analyzed 1217 sales funnels looking to identify the key factors that can maximize conversions. As part of our methodology, we have looked at our own funnels, funnels of our clients, and third-party funnels that we have come across.

In each case, we looked for funnels that were successful, and attempted to codify what made them so.

Where we did not have access to the sales data of the funnel, we estimated the success based on how much was being invested in running ads to the funnel, and the length of time the ads were up for.

As a result, we have identified 17 factors that are essential to a funnel’s success.

We have codified our results in an easy to use 17-point checklist that we use to assess and grade a sales funnel’s effectiveness.

Nowadays, we use this checklist whenever a client hires us to optimize their conversions. It is the very first step that we take in the process to grade their funnel and understand where they’re at.

If you want to check your own funnel by yourself, you can do so. For a limited time, we’re giving our 17-point checklist away entirely FREE of charge, so go ahead and grab it here if you’re interested:

The Checklist will give you a CONVERSION GRADE which will indicate how well your funnel is converting. We have identified that funnels fall into three broad stages, which we have named Stage I, II and III (I know, we’re not very creative lol).

Each stage represents a different stage of efficiency. Based on your conversion grade, the checklist will tell you in which stage your funnel falls in.

We have identified that Stage I funnels (the least efficient) struggle with very low conversion rates and quite often a negative ROI.

Stage II funnels usually break even, which is where most people are at. They don’t make much money, and they don’t lose much money.

And finally, Stage III funnels are where you want to be. These are super high-converting funnels that are the best of the best. People who own these funnels are usually industry leaders.

Going through the checklist will help you determine which stage of the funnel you’re at, how you can improve, and how much of your sales potential you’re currently at now.

For a limited time, we’re giving it away for free. So grab it below:
