Are You Making The Most Of Your Mastermind Group?

I mentioned towards the end of last week that I was off to meet my Mastermind Group on Saturday, this was a problem solving workshop and I put myself in the hotseat by going first, now you might think that’s quite daunting but I find it really helpful, I have a new project in final build stage and the feedback is invaluable

Judging by the responses I got when I spoke about building a Mastermind Group back in November and the number of comments I got on the subject it clearly hit a nerve in terms of people seeing the value in getting support and I think critically getting many fresh pairs of eyes over what you are doing

In the online world we are often working alone in an office and as Michael Gerber once told us the problem with the boss is the boss doesn’t have one, your Mastermind Group will form part of an accountability partnership that keeps you on track, makes you hit time deadlines and meet quality standards

There is however 1 highly valuable resource that you get from a Mastermind Group that I think is too easy to overlook, what is new to you is an everyday task to somebody else, don’t reinvent the wheel it’s already been done let somebody help you with the challenge and in turn make sure you do the same with others, in life we reap what we sow

Shared Experience Is The Real Mastermind Group Power That You Can Harness

Though shared experiences we grow as people, one man or woman is not an island, the power of attending seminars and meetings is not in the one time offer the speaker makes, the just twenty and we close this down at only $2997 Dollars hmm! no the value is in the group that meets for coffee, the networking opportunities, future Mastermind Group members, JV partners, affiliate managers etc

If I send you an e mail and ask for your help it will likely fall on stony ground if however we talk as a group and we get to know each other the opportunities are frankly endless, the real power of a Mastermind Group is in the contacts that you make, the friendships and the trust that grows from it and the sharing of successful ideas from that

The need to travel thousands of miles has gone although on a rainy February morning the idea of being in Florida or somewhere like Southern Spain in the sunshine would be welcome, online marketing is popular all over the world now so building your Mastermind Group within an hour to two hours of where you live should be easier than ever

One of our Mastermind Group now travels regularly and looks after the UK interests of a major Internet Marketer based on connections he made attending a seminar, instead of getting swept along with the hype at these events concentrate on what practical value you can get out of it, if that includes buying products that answer a pressing need rather than the latest magic button software then all the better

Resources To Support Your Mastermind Group Development

So what resources can you use to explode your Mastermind Group experience, well clearly there are many but I will highlight three key ones, number one has to be Outsourcing it releases your time to concentrate on the key areas of your business and stops a lack of technical knowledge getting in your way

I have included a video clip of Napolean Hill talking about what Andrew Carnegie taught him, how he overcame self doubt and went on teach the world about the power of a Mastermind Group, the idea is as powerful today as it was when the two men met, only we can set the limits of how much we achieve or how we get in our own way

Lastly I am going to recommend that of the modern day teachers Rich Schefren is really powerful, his free content is better than much by way of paid content and his founders club program is the best out there, his consulting clients read like a who’s who of Online Marketing success, we set the limits, don’t set yours too low!

As always at this point I ask you for your experiences and want to get your feedback, are you part of a group already or are you planning to join one? My recommendation, find or start one today, I can think of nothing that will power you forward faster than a Mastermind Group

Fastest Ways To Traffic

Fastest Ways To Traffic

What Are The Fastest Ways To Drive Traffic To Your Site Today

If you look in youe inbox today it will be stuffed with e mails promising you the holy grail of traffic generation but how many times have these promises of the Fastest Ways to drive traffic left you feeling cheated out of a real way of acheiving it? if your anything like me quite a lot I suspect

Now we shouldn’t for one momemt start to think that there are not ways of driving a lot of traffic quickly, far from it but we must temper our enthusiasm and our credit cards because the promises of the Fastest Ways of traffic generation keep coming and the ones promising automated free traffic are often stretching things more than a little bit

Let’s face it turning on the traffic taps would be nice, that really would be one of the Fastest Ways to high profits and the often vaunted hours work a day with money pouring in while you sleep with a new glitch and undiscovered method known only to the gurus hmm!

And yet if you get most of the gurus to be honest about what they do they will admit that the Fastests Ways to drive traffic are to use paid traffic and that media buys seems to be the flavour of the month at the moment, so what’s really going on

Well we know that Googles platforms are not attracting the advertising that they once were,paid Google advertising on a search page now accounts for just 8% so clearly that’s fadeing away, clearly they have started to price themselves out of the market, this was always seen as one of the Fastest Ways to drive traffic and it still has it’s place in small scale testing of new sales page conversions but it is now too expensive for general advertising

But how about the massive untapped torrent of free Google traffic that we are now being told is out there, wouldn’t this really be the holy grail, one of the most legitimate and Fastest Ways of driving unlimited targeted traffic, well in part it’s always been there, it’s just not been fashionable to look for it in recent times

The Common Myths on The Fastest Ways To Drive Traffic

Okay put your hand up if you’ve ever bought into one of these undiscovered, untapped, black hole, etc, etc method of driving traffic, be honest we all have, when you opened it one of two things happened, either it was an established method dressed up in new clothes or as has happened recently it was asking you to try and trick one of the paid traffic sites with a script, I don’t know about you but I don’t think that’s a good idea on perhaps the fastest growing traffic site online

Let’s be totally honest here, if these Fastest Ways to drive unlimited free targeted traffic existed do you really think it would be a secret for long, in the end this is a business and businesses have to balance cost against income and traffic generation is a cost period

Ah I can here you saying, free traffic has no cost but I would argue that it does because either your or your Outsourcers time is not free, so really none of the Fastest Ways of driving traffic are truly free, if you balance the perhaps hundreds of hours a year you spend researching it then it is far from free

How about unlimited free traffic that we see advertised, you know the one, I was getting 1000 visitors a day but after I installed this push button 3 clicks software I now get 95,000-100,000 vistors a day, surely that really does represent one of the Fastest Ways of driving free traffic, well the truth is rather different

Yes I do believe that people are generating incomes of 100,000 Dollars a month and upwards selling digital products on sites like clickbank but if you read a number of blogs some of these people are being rather less than honest in what they do, so myth number one is most of that income comes from paid traffic, we are talking 50,000-75,000 Dollars a month paid traffic

So there are a stream of products coming out selling free unlimited traffic generated we are told be cutting edge software when really these people are buying the traffic to promote their offers, the second thing is the income claims are based on their total results across a range of affiliate products not on the income from the product they are talking about

Clearly then the people who are selling this holy grail, this dream if you like using the Fastest Ways to drive targeted traffic and it’s not free and it’s not quick because myth number two is the amount of time involved in doing this, far from the 1 hour a day and off to the beach many are working 7 days a week at it

So What Really Are The Fastest Ways To Drive Traffic

So myths shattered, push button simple isn’t really that simple and it certainly isn’t free, what are the Fastest Ways to drive targeted traffic to your site? well there are two main competitors to Google for paid advertising along the lines of Google adwords and certainly they represent the Fastest Ways to drive targeted traffic

Now it’s not going to come as a great shock because these really do exist,they are less expensive, you can control your budgets easily and they do represnt two of the Fastest Ways to drive truly targeted traffic to your sites, put simply they are
Facebook and the dating site Plenty of Fish

When you think about it, both models which are very different hold a lot of information on their subscribers, ideal for a demographic model and both have Demographics Tool ,so their Fastest Ways to drive traffic can also be very profitable, just check what they do and don’t accept before you try and advertise

Of course if you have something that converts well then your JV partners represent one of the Fastest Ways to drive traffic and being a warm market there’s less resistance, it also represents the only really true way to get free targeted traffic but you must be prepared to do the same for others, it’s not a one way street

We often read about a truly viral product,a great report or a great piece of information that somebody gives away, now clearly this is not free for the person creating it but the returns can be enormous,Rich Schefrens
Internet Manifesto truly was one such product and as such represented one of the Fastest Ways to drive targeted traffic, over 1 Million people downloaded that report and no serious marketer should be without it

Now clearly these do not represent the only ways to drive traffic but they do represnt ways that you can actually do it today, they are completely as they seem, in another post I am going to look at other ways of driving traffic, not immediate but methods that keep delivering visitors but if you want quick traffic these are the Fastest Ways
