Paid Traffic The Future of the Internet Why You Need to Start Now

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video. Let’s talk about paid traffic. What is paid traffic? It is whenever you buy influence through traffic on Google, Facebook, Instagram, and a few other sources. We’re going to talk about Google and Facebook, because those are the big boys. I want you to understand something. The way that it is going, in the next three to five years, regardless of how good your blog is or your YouTube channel is, you’re going to have to pay to get noticed. I’ll tell you my story. I was rolling on YouTube in 2009 through 2012. In 2013, I kind of hit a roadblock. First there was a bug that interrupted my channel for three months and I did not get any subscribers. Then I wasn’t getting any traction. In 2010, I had roughly 27K subscribers and I’d put out a video and get 200 or 300 views, which did not make any sense based on my past results. Before 2010, I’d get maybe 1000 views off of a small subscriber base of 127 to 300 subscribers. That’s when YouTube started monkeying around with the algorithm. They started to do things a little differently. I had to make a decision, because I used to be that dude who said I’d never pay for traffic. After a few months of not...

Do You Have the Courage to Take the Shot

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video. We’re going to talk about taking the last shot. You’ve got the ball in your hands and there is six seconds on the clock. Do you take the shot or do you pass it to someone? It’s 4th and 1 and there’s six or seven seconds on the clock, do you keep the ball or pass it off to the running back? The questions I’m asking you is: do you have the courage to start a business? Because, one of the things I am seeing is a lot of procrastination. People say things like, “I’m trying to get this knowledge.” “I’m reading these books.” “I’m preparing.” You should do that. You really should. The question you have to asked yourself is: Are you really in the game to win it? Are you really the person that wants the ball with a few ticks on the clock so you can win the game or are you just afraid? Are you just scared? Seriously, that’s what we’re going to discuss today. Now. Let’s talk about this scared thing. I’ve been looking at some stuff, right. I took some notes because we need to take some notes. One of the things is opportunity. Opportunity does not come to you like a good-looking woman, a 10 or 12, dressed nice and smelling...

How to Start a Million Dollar Business with $289 Investment – Starting a Publishing Company

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video. I’m going to tell you how I started a multi-million-dollar business with a $289 investment. I’ll tell you the good, the bad and the ugly on how to do this. I’m going to tell you my story and how I did it. Then, I’m going to tell you the takeaways. In 2009, I started my YouTube channel. I had a few goals. The first goal was to make $50K a year. My second goal was to write a book and leverage that into a publishing contract. None of that happened, and Thank God it didn’t. So, I did that and I found out something really interesting. You can virtually build a company out of sweat equity using the internet as leverage. It was very new to me. A lot of people aren’t as fascinated by the internet as they should be. They aren’t blown away. I want you to think about that. I downloaded a book from my head into a PDF, an eBook and also created physical books. I made money. I want you to really think about that. There is this thrill or enthusiasm I get every time I create a product and I sell it, and I make money. I don’t care if it’s $5 or $5000. Essentially, I spent $289 to get started with...

How to Create your Own Flea Market – The Best Way to Move the Smalls

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video. A lot of resellers end up with things that won’t sell on eBay, Amazon or Craigslist. As the stuff starts stacking up, they even consider giving it away just to get rid of it. If you do that, you’re throwing away money. Listen to me. You’ll make more money with base hits versus homeruns. Homeruns are nice and they’re beautiful. But, name one baseball player who has made a living off homeruns. I can’t think of any. If they don’t get those base hits, the homeruns don’t mean “jack.” The homeruns are icing on the cake and the cake is base hits. If you get a guy who is hitting like 600 or 700, he’ll be the richest baseball player ever. That’s how important base hits are to winning the game. Now back to this business of creating your own flea market. One of the things I noticed when I started buying more storage auction units is I would get the same things over and over. Our cutoff was $25 or $30. Anything worth less than that, we put in the dollar area. Why? Because I knew I was going to get that item over and over again. One of the mental things that kills so many people in this business is thinking an item is worth more...

I Got $50,000 in Bitcoin – So What

If you don’t want to read it, you can watch this video. I’ve got $50K in bitcoin and I’m not even impressed. I’m going to tell you why I’m not impressed. About seven or eight years ago I bought a lot of bitcoin. I looked in there today and it is worth $51K. Here’s my problem with this. Let’s say I was Broke Dick Danny and I had $50K in bitcoin. What would I do? Since I’m Broke Dick Danny, I would cash it in. Then I would have no more bitcoin. The problem with bitcoin is when you spend some, you lose value. As an investment, it can be good. You can’t really do anything with it if you go ahead and spend it down. I know a lot of people here are going, “I just want some bitcoin.” The mindset that comes with the bitcoin craze is very speculative. Since I didn’t really spend anything, if it crashes I don’t really care. You’ve got to have more than bitcoin going on. In 2009, I started this company. It has made over $7 million. I bought some bitcoin real cheap and started my company real cheap. If you want to put yourself in a good position, go ahead and get some bitcoin. Knock yourself out. If you really want to cement your position, you should start a company. You...
