Many people get hung up on how to create a free report in order to get people to provide their name and e-mail address.
Here is a really quick way to get it done whats better is that it is free and easy.
I’ve got a couple of sites that I am going to be putting together and I’m going to task my outsourcers with putting this together for me.
Catch you soon
P.S. Plank is an excellent marketer you can learn a lot from him
Lately I’ve been thinking about what’s different about Outsource Success as opposed to any other virtual assistant companies.
I’ve come up with this;
It’s because my partner Raj (who runs the office in Mauritius) and I are doing the
exact same things that you are wanting to do.
We are creating our own products and marketing them online.
We have the same goals as you:
- To make more money in less time.
- Have a business that run’s on autopilot.
- Increase our exposure.
- Focus on the tasks that we love rather than those that drag us down.
- Live the four hour work week (or as close to it as you want).
- Financial Independence.
The list goes on, I’m sure you’ve got your own personal reasons.
I want to share with you an example of how I’m doing the things that you want to be doing, as it might stir some of you to get moving.
One of my clients is Matt Lovell, he’s the nutritionist for the England Rugby Team (quite a high profile position). A little while back we were talking and he said that he was going to lose 10 lbs before he went on holiday, he’d been working hard and not been able to exercise as much as normal..
I asked him how he was going to do it?
He proceeded to tell me… It was fascinating and I really warmed to his enthusiasm and the approach he outlined. I was already convinced that he knew his stuff.
You don’t have a job with as much responsibility as Matt has without being an expert.
OK I’m up for following along and losing 10 lbs myself and why don’t we record everything that we do and make it into a product that we can sell.
‘Sounds like a great idea…’
The first part was easy losing the 10 lbs that only took 2 weeks, I wish I could say that we made the product as quickly.
It took a few months tooing and froing we were interrupted by holidays, Matt being away on tour with the England team etc. All really poor excuses for not cracking on.
Anyway it’s done now and I’ve learnt a lot. I’ll share some of those learnings in a future post.
Let me share with you what we’ve done and how we are marketing Four Week Fat Loss because there are some things you may want to emulate.
We’ve got a 54 page e-book that we are selling for £29.97 ( approx $47US), there is 6 weeks free access to a members only blog with additional videos, content,the ability to ask Matt questions and access to live Q and A calls and a few other goodies you can get the full list on the sales page. It’s great value for what it is.
Here are a couple of screen shots from the book
For the members area blog we are using wordpress and have added WishList Member to run the membership function.
Wishlist member is really cool, firstly it only costs $97 and it’s very straightforward to install.
It took my outsourcer a little bit of poking around to get the paypal payments and automatic password generation all set up but that was just a minor teething problem.
Here’s the members area for you to have a look at http://www.FourWeekFatLoss.com/MembersArea/ there are some posts that are visible, these posts are part of the autoresponder series I have written.
So what’s the marketing process.
We direct people to visit the home page http://www.FourWeekFatLoss.com/ once they have opted in on that page they are then sent to a page that has some good fat loss information and where there is a link to the sales page.
Here’s the sale page…
I wrote the sales page myself.
There’s a video on the page of me before and after losing 10 lbs, I’ve had feedback that I looked too fit to begin with and I should replace that video with someone a bit more average looking to begin with! I’ll remove my video as soon as we get some other testimonials.
I’ve also written a series of follow up autoresponder messages that provide extra information and also direct prospects back to the sales page where they can order the package.
The page is converting pretty well at the moment and we have only just started marketing it. I’ll share in another post if you’re interested in how we are actually marketing the program.
My purpose in sharing this post with you is that I and the team at Outsource Success know how to put together and market a product that can sell and make you money.
If you’ve got any ideas you want to talk about or bounce off me send me an e-mail or add me on skype. I’ll be happy to have a quick chat with you.
How are we going with those new year resolutions…
I read an article over Xmas where the British Gold Medal winning athletes were asked what their new years resolutions where.
Yes, for ONCE it was a decent sized article about 30 people in total were surveyed.
Thee were 2 main themes in their responses.
A number said they were going to make more time for themselves, spend more time with their family and to relax.
The OTHER group said and I’m paraphrasing here.
Don’t make promises on a specific day, just decide what you are going to do and DO IT.
So often we put things off and say we will do X on such a date or when Y happens we will get started.
We BARGAIN with OURSLEVES.
I believe when we negotiate with ourselves we sow the seeds of ultimate failure.
It’s vital to take ACTION at the point of making a decision.
If you decide that you are going to eat healthily, don’t wait till tomorrow MORNING to start clear out all the rubbish food from your cupboards and plan what your next meal is going to be right now.
You’re kidding yourself if you say
‘I’ll just have this last bowl of ice cream and then I’ll start’
If you’ve decided to learn more about Outsourcing and want to start using a Virtual Assistant then I look
forward to hearing your results.
Maybe it’s why Nike is so popular
whatever IT is for you
JUST DO IT
I’ll only ever recommend products, courses and ebooks that I have purchased myself or used.
I don’t really wish to be part of these big product launches that you see the top Internet marketers clamouring over.
The reason for that pre-amble is that I purchased this report last week.
It was one of those things that got my mind working and pumping out ideas. It was so easy in it’s simplicity it’s also spurred me into action.
I cant go into too many details about the process but the author maps out a plan and a process for developing expertise in less than 30 days.
That’s instant enough for me…
You’ll find it exciting…
It’s possible then to create products that you can sell at the end of the 30 days.
After all if you’ve actually done it then people will be interested to learn the secrets
I love learning new stuff…
Maybe that’s why it appealed to me
Here’s my list of areas that I want to gain expertise in no particular order
Develop a huge subscriber list/ Traffic to my sites
Juggle with 4 balls and other items
Master remembering names
Hit a golf ball 300 yards
Property investing with no money down
Increase my strength
Cook 3 ‘signature’ meals from 10 different cultures

Internet marketer Rob Toth is interviewing a whole range of marketers and asking them the following questions.
I’ve put my brief answers in, I’m interested in your comments am I on track or off base?
(1) What is YOUR vision and prediction for where the Future of Information Marketing is headed?
The industry will continue to grow and blossom. Existing niches will be split making many more profitable sub niches this is where new entrants will find success.
(2) What is your #1 success tip for anyone considering information marketing or already involved?
Learn how to Outsource effectively.
Information marketing is a bit of a land grab at the moment. The better you are at Outsourcing and team
building the more ‘ real estate’ you’ll be able to capture.
(3) And what is the biggest challenge or pitfall that you feel holds individuals back from success
in Information Marketing?
Believing that they can do it, that people will want to listen and will pay to read the content that they
Also many wannabe information marketers are guilty of constructing their own roadblocks to success,
It could be technology, I dont know how to set up …
It could be time, how can I manage to get al this done..
Re-frame the question to How can I…
I’ve created some excellent content that’s a must to see if you are thinking about finding people to do work for you on elance.
xx Writing a job description on elance
How a savyy internet marketer writes his job adverts so that the job gets done like clockwork with virtually zero interaction with the VA.
It’s genius and will save you hour upon hour.
xx Would you give your 150 page book for the world to view for free?
Duh no well this guy did
Watch this to see how your information could get ripped off if you’re not careful.
xx How to find top notch providers on elance stack the odds in your favour and calculate
how much they are likely to work for.
This content is in the Outsourcing Blue Print members club. You can access it all for $1.
Ask me any questions you have about e-lance or any of the other providers and I will answer them and send you the video I create as a thank you.
I’m putting the finishing touches to a product/ service I’m going to be launching on the market place very soon.
The main focus is to start organising yourself and working out what a Virtual Assistant can do for you.
Here’s the link to the sales page there is access to my personal outsourcing blueprint on that page
