In this episode you will discover how to plan, set up, and present a money-making webinar… with ease!

On our previous episode, Amy Porterfield and I discussed the power of webinars. We talked about using Facebook ads combined with webinars to turn any business into a money-making machine.

Even in 2015, webinars are still among the best ways to drive online sales and create a sustainable income. This is true whether you’re an entrepreneur, freelancer, or even a brick and mortar business owner.

But how do you create a webinar that sells, without being overly salesey? How much of your content should you be sharing? How should you structure the webinar? What tools and systems should you use to set it up? All great questions!

That’s why I asked the world-leading webinars expert, Steven Essa, to join us today!

Artwork showing today's episode title

In this episode, Amy Porterfield and I examine how to turn a business that has no list, into a money-making machine.

Due to audience demand, the brilliant Amy Porterfield is back on the show! Find out how by spending less than $10 a day, any entrepreneur can use Facebook to turn his business into a money-making machine!

… And did I mention already that’s you only need to spend $10 a day?!

Listen now:

Episode Highlights

  • Why the livelihood of your business is in your list, and not in your social media strategies
  • What to expect from social media this year… and what not to!
  • How $10 a day can turn your business into a money-printing machine (and why spend even that!)
  • Amy’s tried-and-tested 4 step system to supercharge the sales of any business. Whether it’s online, or offline!

Little things to remember

For the ad:

  • The image of an unpublished page post ad should be 1200×627 px. It’s also better that you use PNG and not JPG
  • Officially, only 20% of your image can consist text. In practice, you can usually get along with up to 25%
  • Targeting is what will make or break the campaign.Experiment with it and see what works.
  • Make sure that your ad makes it clear that the resource is free!
  • Include the benefits of the lead magnet in your ad’s text

For the webinar:

  • If you’re running a webinar, you should know that EVERYONE starts with a small list of attendees and build themselves up!
  • Ditch the chat room option until you have at least 100 attendees. Chat room only helps when it’s functioning as social proof. Your audience will be none the wiser, and you will sell better without it!

Generally:

  • Your lead magnet MUST target your own product, otherwise you’re building an irrelevant list!
  • A good initial conversion rate from Facebook ad to your list is 10%. (optimal performance is around 50-60%)
  • Ideally, you should be paying $1 or less per lead. If you’re paying more, play around with your targetting.
  • Remember that the most powerful part of the strategy is not the webinar, but the email marketing that comes after it!
  • By building a healthy mailing list, you are building a solid lifetime foundation for your business. This is much better than relying on Facebook or Twitter for leads!

Making a full time income selling t-shirts on Teespring

In today’s episode we share how you can start making a full-time income by selling T-shirts online on a new platform called Teespring!

Making money on Teespring – Episode Highlights:

  1. How Benny Hsu segued from an app business to making full time income by selling T-shirts on Teespring.
  2. Where to find designers for your T-shirts, and how much should it cost?
  3. How to get traffic to your Teespring campaigns without breaking any sweat (or the bank)!
  4. How to find and tap into the hottest trends and themes that already work on Teespring .
  5. How to get started right now!

Today’s Guest: App developer & T-shirt Entrepreneur!

I first met Benny Hsu at the 2013 New Media Expo in Las Vegas. Back then, he was the latest and hottest app developer success story. I’ve just interviewed him as a cover story for the Inspiring Innovation magazine, and we became good friends.

Benny’s story became a mini-legend. After all, he went from working at his family’s restaurant, to developing apps. Then, his first app, ‘Photo365′, generated over $31,000 in sales in under 30 days!

Benny went on and created more apps, mostly following his “365” theme. None of them was as successful as the first one, and last I spoke with him he was dabbling with app re-skinning.

From App Re-Skinning To Selling T-Shirts On Teespring

App re-skinning is an easy way for anyone to get into the app development game. By buying one ready-made app and only changing its graphics, you create tens if not hundreds of apps… fast.

With each app generating a few tens, or even hundreds, of dollars every month, the more apps you re-skin – the more money you make.

The problem is that as app re-skinning is just changing the graphical design of an app. You’re not adding any value to the end user. That makes it too easy for competition to grow… and that’s exactly what happened.

Competition in the re-skinning world grew quickly, and exponentially. Today, using app re-skinning as a business model to generate a full-time income has become hard.

Seeing where the market was going, Benny resolved to pivot. He had a business re-birth, and created something completely new.

Making A Full Time Income By Selling T-Shirts Online

It all started with an interview Benny was listening to. Some guy was making a six-figure monthly income by selling T-shirts. What interested Benny was that he was using a new platform called ‘Teespring’.

You should know that Benny has been thinking of selling t-shirts ever since he read the 4 Hour Work Week. He just never had an option to make it happen; The set-up costs were always too high, the profit margins too low.

But listening to that interview, Benny knew that Teespring will change everything.

What Is Teespring

Teespring is for apparel what Kickstarter is for startups. It allows anyone to create a t-shirt design, and set up a fundraising campaign to get it made.

When a campaign meets its sales goals, Teespring handles everything. They take care of the charging, producing, manufacturing and shipping of the t-shirts to all the buyers. All the designer has to do – is to collects the profits.

If not enough people agree to buy the shirt, the campaign failes. In such case, the customers doesn’t pay a penny, the t-shirts are not made, and nobody loses any money.

This new model removes all the old risks of manufacturing first, validating later. With Teespring, you confirm the market wants it, before you make it. And when they want it – you don’t need to worry about producing it. Teespring takes care of it for you!

Launching A Successful Teespring Campaign

As you will hear in today’s episode, Bennie’s start with the platform was far from perfect. In fact, his first 21 campaigns failed to get funded(!).

But perseverance paid off… big time. Campaign 22 was a hit, and Benny has cracked the code. Once he had his first win, Benny repeated what worked and ditched what didn’t. He was quickly making a full time income selling T-shirts online!

Listen to today’s episode to learn:

  • How Benny managed his experiments
  • What stats did Benny measure to determine what designs he should pursue
  • How Benny kept his experimenting costs to the bare minimum.

It is extremely possible that you can sell your first hundred T-shirts online before New Year’s! But if will happen ONLY if you don’t miss out, listen to today’s episode, and then… take action!

I’ll be taking a short holiday until 2015. I want to wish you happy holidays, Merry Xmas, happy Hanukkah, and a fantastic and exciting new year!

Yours always,
Meron

Kevin Cann acquired 9 properties while working a regular factory job and earning $10hr. Listen to find out how he did it, and how you can do the same!

Build a Real Estate Empire While Working A $10hr Job

Episode Highlights

  • Happy Thanksgiving!
  • How Kevin Cann acquired 9 properties while working a regular factory job and earning $10hr
  • Lessons learned from Kevin, and how you can apply them to your own journey!
  • Entrepreneurship, the sacrifices Kevin had to make, and what he got in return

I e-met Kevin when he was taking my free video course, Podcast Starter Kit. We were chatting about his new show, and I asked him for his background. When he shared his story with me, I was gobsmacked.

“There’s no way something like this is even remotely possible!” I thought.

Nonetheless, here, standing right in front of me (virtually) – was a man who achieved it. But how?

Was he more qualified than others? No. Did he have the perfect upbringing or previous experience? No, not at all.

It’s sheer determination to get out of the hamster wheel that powered this amazing feat. It was the will to lose sleep, work hard (very hard), make mistakes and learn from them, and reach out for help.

It was everything that makes an aspiring entrepreneur into a successful one.

And today, I’m very thankful for Kevin opening up and sharing his unique story with the audience. It’s his first interview ever, but I’m sure it’s the first of many.

I hope you tune in to today’s inspiring episode, and if you have a minute, check out Kevin’s website or leave him a few words in the comments section.

I also want to use this day on which America is celebrating Thanksgiving, to thank YOU – for the ongoing support, for reading, tuning in, and spreading the inspiration. Thank you.
