Alright… So I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything on this blog. I’ve been hyper focused on my money projects. As you’re probably aware from my previous income reports, this blog doesn’t really make me much money. It’s more of just an outlet and a way for me to share what I’m working on and how it’s working. Sometimes I just need to step away from things like my blog for a little bit to get hyper-focused on the projects that bring in the cash…
Things that are currently making me money are The WordPress Classroom, The Elite Marketing Foundation, my niche blogs, and some occasional affiliate promotions of products that I think are great to my email list. If I take long periods of time away from my blog, it’s because I need to focus on the places that are paying the bills. (And trust me, after this tax season, I needed to focus on those things for a bit)
I’m currently knee deep in three projects at the moment and, with this blog post, I’m about to add a forth…
The three projects that I’m working on are:
Beyond The Hype – My partnership with Josh Bartlett. With this project, Josh and I are gathering some of the smartest minds in business and personal development and bringing them in to our “hype-free” zone. We’re getting them to unload as much knowledge as we can possibly squeeze out of them without letting them pitch anything and without any ulterior motives.
The WordPress Classroom 3.0 – The WordPress Classroom is getting a complete facelift. I’m bringing the site in to the modern era with a new intuitive layout and a new sales funnel. More details on this as I make progress.
The Offline Client Method – This is a brand new project that I have not told anyone about yet. I’m partnering with a local San Diego businessman named Josh Grillo. Josh Grillo is the master of the pitch. He’s a guy that can go in to any business and walk out with a service contract. Josh and I are teaming up to teach the business model of helping brick and mortar businesses bring their business online. More details on this one later this month.
I’ll be posting more frequently for a little while because I’d like to experiment with some business models and share the results. In my next post, early next week, I’m going to introduce you to my first (of many) $1k per month challenges.
In these challenges, I’m going to discuss a business model and then give myself 30 days to take that business model from nothing to adding an extra $1,000 per month to my business.
I’m not talking about making an extra $1,000. I’m talking about adding $1,000 every single month to my business. I’m talking about giving myself a raise of $12,000 per year.
Now, with these challenges, I’m giving myself some restrictions and rules. I want to prove that my current status in the industry will have no impact on adding this extra $1,000 per month to my business. I want to prove that my existing lists and websites will have no factor either.
The rules will be:
1. Open a brand new Aweber account… I don’t want to use any of my existing mailing list for these challenges.
2. Use a pen name… I don’t want people to actually know that it’s me in my promotions because this can skew the results if people purchase something because of my name.
3. Keep a diary of everything I do so that I can share it here on the blog.
4. Don’t mention product names or website addresses in the blog posts until the end of the challenge because this can skew results.
5. If the project isn’t profitable within 30 days, drop it completely and move on (but still share the results on the blog).
Now, I’m going to do several of these challenges and I will share the steps I take along the way. The idea being that you can follow along with me as I show you what I do and you can do the same or you can wait until I’m done with a challenge, see how it did, then backtrack and try it yourself.
My first challenge will start early next week and it will revolve around e-mail marketing and purchasing paid traffic. I’ll give you the action steps that I’m going to take and then create followup blog posts along the way to give you results of my action steps.
That’s the idea and the first challenge will be revealed next week. Make sure you check back often because I will probably be posting several shorter blog posts on a more frequent basis to keep you up to date with my progress.
Get ready to learn a really cool business model that I’m confident can add an extra $1,000 per month to ANYONE’S bank account.
