Starting a New Online Business WITHOUT Experience

My last several blog posts have outlined a plan of action that I would take if I suddenly lost everything and had to start all over again, without any of my previous products, subscribers, partners, or other resources. In other words, in the same position most newbies face when first starting out online. While this provides the newbies with some idea of WHAT to do, they still don’t have much of any idea HOW to

Starting Over – Part 6 (final sequence)

At the end of yesterday’s post, at which point I had produced a new guided meditation as my first product in this whole “starting over” scenario, I mentioned that the next step would be to start contacting potential affiliates about the new offer they could announce to their mailing lists. I actually jumped the gun a bit on that, as I really should TEST market my new product to my own list first, just to

Starting Over – Part 5

By this point in the series, we have covered the first 2 weeks of what I would do if I had to start all over again without any of my previously created products, my mailing list, partners, or other resources. If all goes well, by this point in the process, I’m already getting a few dozen new subscribers per day, and perhaps a sale or two each day of one or more of the affiliate

Starting Over – Part 4

For those just coming into this series, I’m describing what I would do if I had to start all over again, without any of the resources I’ve gained from being in business online for these past 15 years, as if I were a complete newbie, but with the knowledge and experience of an internet veteran. I’m doing this to help those who would like to start their own online business, but don’t know how to

Starting Over – Part 3

In the first 2 posts in this series, I’ve described what I would do in the first week in the fictional case of having to start all over again with nothing — none of my previous products, partners, mailing list, or other assets. Up to this point, I’ve researched a need that exists in the current marketplace, picked out a couple of affiliate products to represent, and have created or found something I can give

Starting Over Again – Part 2

By the end of yesterday’s post, I had described what I would do in the first 5 days of having to start all over again, without any of my previous products, partners, or subscribers. I’m writing this series of posts to help those who want to start a new business, but aren’t sure what steps they need to follow.  Since every situation is different, I can’t tell you what YOU should do — at least not

If I Had to Start All Over Again

A popular question posed to many business experts is, “What would you do differently if you had to start all over again now?” What beginning business owners hope to get from the answer to this question is an idea of how they may best start their own business. Several years ago, a college kid by the name of Joe Kumar posed a similar question to many Internet Marketing experts.  His question was, “If you suddenly

Behind the Scenes Numbers

On January 10, 2018, I launched a new e-course called “30 Days to Divine Power“. This was new for me in that I created it as a paid product, but allowed folks to decide for themselves what they wanted to pay for it AFTER they had already gone through it. I set it up this way for 2 reasons. First, because I’ve done a lot of “pay what you want” live events here in the

Building Wealth Without Starting a Business

Recent posts have focused on starting a business doing something you enjoy. But what if you want more wealth, but don’t want to start a business? Fair question, especially since many folks are completely happy working a regular job, and not everyone wants to venture out into the unknown in pursuit of greater wealth. But I do have to make one point.  Even if you’re an employee working for someone else, you’re still in business. 

Mailing List Management

After 15 years of online business, I can confirm that your most valuable asset will be your mailing list. Without a mailing list, it takes much more effort to sell your products and services, and with a good list, you can make money promoting products and services whether you or someone else provides them. What has really surprised me were the many times I thought I had burned out my list from too many promotions
