10 years ago if you wanted to launch a business or even to test an idea you had to rent an office, furnish and create the IT infrastructure for it, spend a lot of dough as startup costs, and all that jazz.
Now you can create a funnel, put a team in a coworking space, plug the laptops in space’s IT infrastructure and bang, you can start something. The power of the internet has caused the transaction costs to become smaller and smaller, as time goes by. So, in theory, it is easier than ever to start a project but most of the beginner entrepreneurs are lured in the idea to raise funds and make money and are not focused on creating real, lasting value. And here is their biggest seatback.
What’s the biggest mistake that entrepreneurs are making? Many companies are just using the internet and technology to slash costs and they do everything possible to outsource as much possible. They focus on cutting the costs instead of using the internet and the tech facilities at hand today to actually create much better products. And this trend is helped by the gooroos promoting via books, courses, webinars, and seminars the mindset that you can just use the internet, don’t work at all, or maybe just a little bit, outsource everything and lay low on a sunny beach. The whole value building idea is somehow out of the equation. And this is wrong and it is bad both for the business, the customers and all other stakeholders.

I made a pause publishing on the blog which is now over and I would like to start with “3 Reasons to launch an online course if you’re offering services”. I’ve struggled for months and even years to create and sell online courses, the learning curve was not easy but it worked fortunately and in the next period besides working on my own courses I want to help action-taker professionals to launch successfully theirs.
I’ve been in dark corners multiple times bursting with stress and anxiety but all the time I’ve found a way to go further and my work I perform online was in many cases the proper medicine. I am a little bit of workaholic and sometimes my family suffers due to this habit but as I’ve transform a lot of my consulting work into inline content, courses and products I am able to free some of the work time and put it back towards the family. My work will still take a lot of time, I believe in its purpose to push the humanity forward so will continue to do my best.
If you are a high level professional selling high ticket services you may consider the idea of creating an online course as an entry gate to your expertise.

In the entrepreneurship world, people talk about mindset all the time and how important it is for success. We all are manipulated in one way or the other through TV and social media. The fake gurus are all over teaching us how to become millionaires but at the end of the day, they may struggle to pay their rent and many of them are just broke manipulators.
Would you let somebody perform an open heart surgery if the person happens to be just an avid reader and publisher of information about heart surgery but not a skilled practitioner?
I love social media and it is a fantastic tool to get educated and also to educate others but if you live just for a like and do things just to be acknowledged by a number of people by a touch of a button … then you are f____d up!

Sometimes there is a wall blocking our imagination and this is … what other people think.
We are taught since childhood to care about what other people may think about us. And while this could keep us on the safe side of things it can break and destroy all our business efforts. And it can affect our life overall.
This is the reason many businesses don’t go all in with their marketing and waste opportunity after opportunity … from the fear of what people say.
I had tons of bad moments in my life and business when I realized that I am all alone in front of the troubles so why should I care. There are companies missing sales, missing growth and going down towards bankruptcy because they fear this one thing — pushing their marketing to new heights.

Well, when we are talking about marketing, in many instances it is an exact science because a good marketer knows about his audience more than the people forming the audience know about themselves.
So many clients and social media connections are confused about what a sales funnel really is. Yes, there is a big buzz these days due to the rise of applications like the amazing Clickfunnels but I always say that it is a great strategy to come back to basics and start from there.
The core definition of a sales funnel (which is also known as a revenue-generating funnel or the actual mapping of a sales process) refers to the very important buying process that businesses lead their customers through when they purchase products or services. It is a process starting with the moment when a lead is generated and is a reflection of the customer journey leading to repeated sales. Of course, not all leads will become customers, some will never buy, others may buy later and there will be few which will buy a lot and become raving fans.
A sales funnel is a process and it is backed by science and is divided into several steps, which are different depending on the particular sales model. Continue reading “What is a Sales Funnel?”
I am on a quest to create more content – written, audio and video, expand my audience and give as much value why growing the projects I am involved with. Is it easy? No! Sometimes it is so hard that I am not sure if tomorrow will come. But … I keep grinding! The subject for today is “How to Build a Successful Instagram from Scratch and was initially published on my Medium profile. You can follow me on Medium BTW!
On Instagram you might think of opening your first account or open a new one besides what you already have. In both situations, this article is for you.
Instagram is an absolute no-brainer platform to adopt these days. It is mostly organic, is visual and today it is used by so many people so if you are not on Instagram is like you don’t ever exist :). And it seems to be a great medium to actually launch a new business. To build an Instagram account from scratch is hard work and of course, I want to recommend to avoid buying followers, as this is a bad strategy and could hurt you long term.

JVZoo is one of the most popular affiliate platforms available today and while many online business owners have seen great success in selling digital products over JVZoo, physical products still have and do sell inside the marketplace.
This post will cover what you need to consider before deciding to create, or even launch a physical product over the platform.
1. What is a physical product?
A physical product is essentially anything that can be delivered to your customer offline, and is therefore the opposite of a digital product. Here I’ve written an entire post about how to be successful with digital products. A physical product will have a lag time between when a customer pays for it, and when they receive it physically in their hands. A physical product most typically will be a paperback or hardcover book, a series of DVDs or CDs with training on them your customer can watch on their computer or TV, a series of printed reports, a physical ticket or invitation to an event, a software hosted on a CD that the customer must use to download a secured software or program onto their computer, or any other physical item you can post in a parcel or letter to your customer. The most popular product you’re likely to come across online in general is a physical book; paperback or hardcover. These sometimes carry more value than an ebook because of the physical “I am holding something I purchased” feeling your customer will receive when they hold it. Even though we’re in the age of the internet, many still prefer to read and make notes in a physical book they can touch.

I sold my first digital product in the summer of 2009 and by the same time I did my first affiliate commission – a hefty $50. This may not seem much but these two events showed my a new path I followed since then building several successful projects in this space.
The information age has been a blessing to the online market. Every single day, millions of people around the world turn to the internet to find answers to problems they have. So many products have been created, aimed at helping people on a daily basis – whether it’s to help with their health, beauty tips, dating advice, how to train their dog, make money online, use Facebook, and so on.
One of the key benefits of JVZoo (a very popular affiliate marketing platform) is its marketplace that allows to sell both digital and physical products. While physical products are a big part of our every day lives, many still opt to read a book or use a tool online or on their desktop. If you have a digital product, JVZoo is a fantastic place to launch it on and sell long term.
