Effective Profit Increasing Strategies For Entrepreneurs [pwal id="74075576" description="raise price"] Raise Your Prices   The first and most obvious step to maximizing profits with your online based business is to raise your prices. Sadly, many entrepreneurs base their prices around what they think people can afford instead of taking into account their own overhead, fees for running a business and how much they need to earn for their business to start providing them with their desired freedom. As entrepreneurs we tend to be afraid of asking for more out of the fear of being called money hungry, less customers etc. Sorry if I sound a little harsh or blunt but If you’re afraid or ashamed of compensation for profit business may not be for you, maybe you should consider starting a non profit and spend the rest of your days relying on contributions from others to help everyone but yourself. As far as less customers because of higher prices, think of it like this…… 10 customers = $1,000 or 2 customers = $1,000? You’re guaranteed more freedom, less stress and less hassle from the latter. Stop being afraid to raise your prices, In the past six months my rates have … Continue reading

Getting and Staying Organized For Online Entrepreneurs + FREE DOWNLOAD/VIDEO TUTORIAL

  Something many entrepreneurs fail to grasp (even myself at times) is that organization and tracking is truly essential. If you do not have a plan, you are planning to fail by default. With internet marketing in particular, in addition to goal setting and planning, project and campaign tracking is a must and something that separates the amateurs from the “big guys”.

To solve this issue for both myself and other online entrepreneurs, I’ve created some To-Do list, Campaign tracker and project organizer templates.   To-Do List Template   This To-Do list template consists of 5 major categories, Priority, Deadline, What needs to be done, Progress and done.

iStock_000022997726Small-583x387

Overcoming The Many Fears of Having Success   Hey there, I decided to write this blog post because the fear of success is something many people deal with and actually fear the most. There is a lot of propaganda that is associated with success, money and people who have both. Constantly hearing about “those greedy wealthy people who take from the poor”, that very successful public figure who “sold their soul to the devil” or even that celebrity who “joined the Illuminati for fame and fortune” definitely does not inspire one to shoot for the stars either. With this blog post I plan to share with you some authentic insight on how to get over the fears you may have regarding success and money as well as why having massive success is not only essential to you but also essential to humanity. Sidenote: If you can’t handle the truth and/or some laughter, I suggest you not read this blog.

Most people have died and are going to continue to die poor or with vast amounts … Continue reading

1148812_635197219894479_1564587623_n

Tips For Successful TeeSpring Marketing After having my very first successful campaign with TeeSpring, I decided to put together this blog and case study to share with you guys some very important lessons that I’ve learned I’m highly sure you will find not only insightful but applicable. For those of you who may not know, Teespring is a crowdfunding platform for T-shirts, hoodies and tank tops that many internet marketers have been using these past few months to rake in six and sometimes seven figures each month. The benefit of using Teespring instead of sites like Cafepress, Spreadshirt and others are the low base price rates and very high quality printing. Teespring has an average base T-Shirt rate of $10 so commissions are generally $10-$20 each tee, one of the highest commission rates in the industry. Other great benefits of using the TeeSpring platform is that if your campaign is successful it takes as little as 2 days for them to pay you via Paypal where as other platforms generally have a NET30 or NET60 (30-60 days) payout schedule. If you’re a marketer and not surfing on the TeeSpring wave, you’re missing out on potentially what could become a full … Continue reading
