Hey guys, I know it’s been awhile, but I just wanted to give an update and let you know how I managed to scale my business to over 6 figures per month.
Also, the 6 figures/month is accounted for all of my businesses combined.
So here we go..
#1 I Took A Deep Dive Into Paid Traffic.
For years I either generated leads organically or with things like solo ads, but knew there had to be a better way to get high quality leads FASTER.
I began to study Facebook Ads and Google Adwords and I’ll admit, I lost A LOT of money at first by making rookie mistakes, BUT finally got good at it!
The main thing to remember with Facebook is that it’s a social media platform and you’re literally trying to get someone who has never heard of you before to hand you money. The best way to do this is by building up a relationship with your audience first and THEN retarget people that know like and trust you with your offers.
With Google, we mainly use Youtube ‘in stream’ ads and the principle is the same. Build up trust first then retarget.
#2 I Launched An Agency
Before I go into this point, I DO NOT have any courses teaching how to start an agency. I mainly just teach how to sell courses or services period and that can be used to start an agency.
I’m actually against newbies trying to start an advertising agency that don’t have a clue about paid traffic. I just don’t believe in trying to do for others what you have not done for yourself.
Anyways, one of my friends noticed my results, asked if I would run some ads for him for a fee and so I did. By word of mouth and from others seeing my results, I got more and more clients paying me a solid monthly retainer.
This was one of the biggest contributing factors to me getting to 6 figures per month, but once again guys, I mastered paid traffic first and my agency came naturally. There’s so many beginners that are wasting their client’s money by claiming to be experts and don’t know what they are doing.
Although, if you happen to know a thing or two about paid traffic, sales funnels or just marketing period. You can easily get businesses to pay you $1,000 + per month to help them. I have one business that pays me monthly just to help them with their mindset and to stay updated on what’s working in the marketplace.
There’s SO MANY different verticals you can take when it comes to running an agency….copywriting, email marketing, paid traffic and the list goes on. Pick one that you’re good at and get you some clients!
#3 I Started Teaching High Ticket Sales
For years I had always gotten high paying clients for services and different gigs, but decided to take my shot at setting up a system to enroll clients more efficiently.
I found a system that worked and began teaching this to people in different industries ranging from personal trainers, yoga instructors, course creators etc and I make quite a bit just from teaching, but once again, I mastered it first then started teaching my methods.
That’s pretty much it.
My business is very simple. I run an agency and teach people about high ticket sales, but the biggest thing you should get from this is the fact that everything happened naturally.
The problem with this industry is that there’s too many people making money by teaching methods that are not even working for themselves.
Do first and then teach. This is how you create long-lasting wealth.
What’s next for me?
Well I want to get into the SAAS business [I](selling software as a service)[/I] as I don’t plan on coaching and running an agency all my life. I have a few ideas that I’m juggling around now but nothing set in stone yet.
Well, that’s it..time for me to get to work.
Talk soon and look forward to seeing your comments!
