A New Month and a New Start with iPro

Hello to followers of my Blog!

In Internet marketing there will be times of dryness and even loneliness. This is especially so when nothing seem to be happening. You must always treat this as your business. It is something you own and as your own just like your child.

This where iPro makes a difference, we have our Motivational Monday; Wednesday we have our coaching session. Both these session are by our motivator and trainer Louis Doughty. We also have our technical wizard Glenn Shepherd doing what we called Techy Thursday.

For iPro partners all these sessions are Live and archived into our Members Area. We can always go over again and again for anything that is not clear. We also have an extremely strong Facebook Community where there is sharing of successes as well as issues our partners encounter. I really love thisCloseup portrait dumb clueless young man arms out asking why what's problem who cares so what I don't know isolated grey wall background.

So now what since it is already Jul 2016? No clue or dead end? I will continue with my same strategy as like previous month to go by the solo ads route. Still it is going to be 300 clicks per vendor with just 2 vendors. I always believe in researching on all my vendors.

At this stage just like last month it is just drawing leads into iPro sales funnel. Hopefully there are sales just to cover cost of these ads. It kind of excites me whenever I see a webinar sign up for my Mentor Dean Holland AffiliateHacks webinar on Mondays! These are potential just at the tip of the iceberg of making four figures day. All these leads are being followed up by iPro. Do you know from my last month solo ads there are still interest going on which I feel is going to lead to some potential. Leads that do not buy today may just sign up or make purchases later on.

Technical stuff like opt-in page, squeeze page and bridge page are always going well above me. I do struggle with these but definitely there must be a way out of this. It may take time but positively there will be an answer. I still believe in blogging my way to traffic.

Thanks and have a great week ahead!

Working on iPro Close to One Month

A Very Good Day to followers of My Blog!

Time sure flies, its been now coming to one month since I left my day job and focusing on iPro.

Now in anything you do you must have a strategy or a plan to go with. iPro is no different and here is my game plan. According to iPro training there are two type of traffic i.e. free or paid. While I take time to re-construct my blog site, I will do solo ads just to drive traffic in iPro sales funnel. This would be the paid method, which I will share in a moment. The free method that I will go along is blogging and videos (YouTube).

SOLO ADS

I did my research on solo ads vendor on Face Book before making any decision. Late May 2016 contacted a solo ad vendor and decided to go with 300 clicks for iPro Big Commission Blue Print Opt-In. I had about a 55.8% opt-in rate, which was not bad for a start. This campaign started on around 3rd June 2016. So much for Big Commission Blue Print (BCB).

Not being satisfied and wanting more, I decided to promote Dirty Affiliate Marketing Secret Quiz (DAMS Quiz)

This was again via Paid method of solo ads and using a different vendor I met with some success this time round. I had about 61.6% opt-in rate my highest so far. What constituted this high opt-in rate? All I can say both vendor and product play their part. There were sales which did cover to a certain extend of my solo ads cost.

Truly overwhelmed! However being very ambitious driven I was gunning for a high-ticket back end sale which is iPro coaching!

I kind of got excited when one of my lead did fill up an iPro Application Form. This means iPro sales representative will get in touch with my lead and hopefully sign up and boom I will make my four figure commission depending on which level my lead sign for.

I did felt kind of down till this moment when nothing happen. That’s life I guess, nothing or rather success comes easy!

From all these happenings its clear iPro does sell and solo ads is one of the methods for fast traffic if you have the budget. I can understand not every one of us is blessed with a budget to do paid traffic.

Not to worry too much if you are in that position you can try blogging like what I’m doing right now. In our real world nothing is for free as we all know. How is it than there is free traffic? Free traffic is paid for in “time” You will not and cannot expect visitors to come by the moment you put up your blog post. Be patient and consistent in your blogging and result will slowly but surely come in.

Another form of blogging is video which is popular and with high potential. I will also take that route as well though I ‘m camera shy!

Sometimes a video could be worth more than a thousand words. Your message and ideas can be delivered in this manner.

I have spoken a lot about iPro and you are free to find out more about it in this coming Monday webinar by Dean Holland. It’s Free and I bet you will love it!

What do you think? Do share with me your thoughts and comments.

Until next week I wish you a good week ahead!

Best Regards

Hello Readers to My Blog!

 

I have been trying several Internet marketing programmes in the last few years. There were several reasons for my failure with these programmes. Some were my own; others were vendors not living up to expectations.

Now let’s get back to my iPro! To begin with I was on the verge of signing up with Alex Jeffrey’s programme. I have been following him stop short of signing up. The only reason for holding back was lack of funds. Through my following I learned that Dean Holland was Alex’s first student. I now cannot recall exactly how I came to know iPro and Dean Holland.

Anyway, I signed up as an iPro Master partner on 9th Nov 2016. At that point of time I knew my full time day job would end on 30th Jun 2016. Nevertheless I decided to leave a month earlier on 31st May 2016. All this while I have listen to live training webinars on iPro and DID NOTHING! Now is this going to be another one of my failures like my entire past Internet marketing coaching programmes? Too good to be true. I tell you my biggest drawbacks were procrastination and no action taking. These are the most potent poison for failure in Internet marketing. Outside Internet marketing procrastination and not taking action will also lead you to failure.

So from 1st Jun 2016 I started to plough my way back and I remember somewhere in my notebook I wrote a kind of self motivating theme

Version 2

 

Now a little more about iPro, it’s simple and I really mean it. With the little I know and my age I could still figure my way in iPro I’m sure anyone reading my post could do it as well.

In simplicity iPro is a sales funnel, which will bring you from free products upselling you other inexpensive products right through to its coaching programme. Now what all partners and I need to do is simply drive traffic through this funnel and gradually you will see result coming through. There are two types of traffic paid or free, a mixture of both would be ideal. Paid will yield fast result while free will take a slightly longer time but have a lasting effect?

Anyway, my present blog site will be undergoing some changes in terms of layout (kind of renovation). Do bear with these changes as I continue to do a weekly post. As I’m not a techy person I did mess up with some of my cPanel and word press admin settings. Thank goodness I had iPro tech expert Glenn Shepherd to help me out. Thank You Glenn for your patience and assistance.

I will tell you more next week, maybe I will try a video post! Please don’t laugh if I look funny and odd!

Do share your thoughts and comments.

Till next week, have fun!

Revival Of My Internet Business & Interest

It has been some long time since I blog and really put my hands into my Internet business. Well if you did nothing, you get nothing right?

 

Closeup portrait dumb clueless young man arms out asking why what's problem who cares so what I don't know isolated grey wall background. Negative human emotion facial expression feeling body language

Anyway I left my day job on 31st May 2016 or rather gave it up. As long as you work for someone, that someone got full control over you. Some of us are fortunate to have good and understanding superiors. To this sort, I would say it’s worth giving your every ounce. However there are some who never and will never appreciate your greatest effort than you are on the loosing end. If they cannot appreciate your greatest how could they appreciate your smallest of all efforts? So much of the day job, now let’s get back to business.

Now if I could remember correctly, I joined iPro Partners on 9th Nov 2015 as a Masters. Believe it or not I did nothing like always. My most common issue was and still now to a certain degree is procrastination. Well I had quite a valid reason this time round. I was moving house and had to see to renovation and moving and all related to moving. I finally moved on 29th Dec 2015 and took months to really settle down. So finally when did I got back to iPro and got more serious?

Way back before 2015 Christmas I did listen to most of the live training webinars by coaches of iPro. However I still did nothing! You might wonder what the heck is this iPro I’m talking about all this while. iPro is a programme whereby I need to drive traffic into their sales funnel and when sales or orders are place you are paid a commission. I will explain more about iPro a little later (hopefully I don’t forget)!!

To make money on the Internet which is my aim and those in the industry, you need to drive traffic or rather targeted traffic to a website (your own or affiliate) and covert these to sales. Boom that’s where you make your $$$.

How To Make Money Online Concept

So the theme is either you develop your own product and sell it or you sell someone else product and make a commission. It sounds all too complicated which I thought as well in the beginning. Tell you more in my next post.

Quick Start Challenge Week 2

It was a real challenge to ask me to shoot a video of myself and have it posted on YouTube.

Crazy as it may be I manage to do it in this Quick Start Challenge Week 2 assignment. It’s not the best of video I could have done but just do it. I guess the idea and benefits are long term.

Some day when you and I are successful in our internet marketing journey, we will look back at this first video and have a good laugh! Most certainly you will see how far you and I came from. Enjoy it and have a good laugh!!

Quick Start Challenge

Phew it was one hell of a time trying to tidy up my blog site!

Anyway, I’m not going to give this up  despite my laptop going to crash as it is working at snail pace.

Now back to this Quick Start Challenge…….

I now need to answer this following question Dean post in the webinar 1. Why you want to make money online? I was thinking firstly of the freedom it offers compare to a day time job. Secondly, I hope to retire and still have a decent income not only for myself but also to provide for the family. Thirdly, I hope to give back to others once I start making the money successfully.

Discipline and consistency is something I lack and the biggest drawback is procastination. Seriously, I need to change and that is not going to be easy. As you can see how late I am in getting my first blog post for Quick Start Challenge. I need to dig deep in to Time Management and Effective Planning to see me through this Quick Start Challenge. Well I need to be consistent this time round although I know it is not going to be easy.

I guess result can only be seen when you are consistent. It’s not going to be easy but I trust what Dean and company are mentoring. Ideally, I would like to share my journey in internet marketing here. I believe a following will start if one is sincere in sharing not only one success as well as failure.

I will be back again after week 2 webinar………

Went off Track in My Journey

 

It must have being ages since I last blog on my site. Distraction and more distraction got the better of me. There is always some stuff preventing me from being consistent in my internet marketing or rather My Partnership to Success Journey. This is the most challenging part of the journey and John must have mentioned it some time back.

Distraction could range from full time job, friends, TV shows even family and the list goes on and on! One stuff leads to another and one week to another.

DreamerI could be surfing the net but not doing what I am supposed to do, sounds odd but its true! Can you imagine I last blog about the internet or Partnership to Success was on 5th March 2014 and September 2014 is right here. Time to Wake Up and get moving. I guess the no time limit of this programme must have got the better of me. I do admit the desire at some point of time wander elsewhere and got lost in the dark side.

 

One has to be very focused and disciplined as well to achieve your goals. Taking action is one thing but being consistent is another I must say. There were times when I just felt so tired and started saying yes I will do it tomorrow and that is carefully repeated day after day (procrastination they say). It’s very true when that happen to me. I remember John saying somewhere about being passionate and breathing and Internet marketing the moment you wake up and before you go to bed!

 

Discipline is something easier said than done! Self-motivation is also needed if you want to succeed in internet marketing. Taking action had to be constantly taken to ensure you are always in touch. Once you break your consistency, I must say from experience you have to be careful. It is like an airplane flying of course and getting lost in the deep blue sea. The earlier you realized you have gone off course the better is for you. You must put all effort to set yourself back to original course. I have been in this situation not too long ago. I’m trying whatever I can to get myself back on track. It’s still very challenging just to get myself back to original course.

 

I was last at week 9 in niche selection if I can still remember what I have done so far!

From a humble beginning, we can clearly see what the internet have done to our present day living. I am sure we will all agreed we cannot do without the internet. Information could now be found by using any of the popular search engines and you have it at your fingertips.

I like to share from my personal experience, a kid way back in the late 1960s I remember waiting several weeks before I could watch an English football game. Let’s assume a game was play on Sunday and it would take at least 2 Sundays down the road before I can watch the game. It was still in black and white and it takes time for the reel to arrive here in Singapore for broadcast. You can read the results of games play in U.K. like 3 days after it was played. Now that is history, today you watch all your games live by subscribing to some networks on the internet at the comfort of your home computer. All thanks to the internet.

Most certainly today most if not all of us would have bought something online say within the last 3 months right? Again it’s thanks to the internet for e-commerce. We all will agree one way of the other the internet is here to stay right? Otherwise we would not have sign up for John’s Partnership to Success!

What Else Can I do on the Internet?

It is very unlikely to find anyone who surf the net not going to http://www.youtube.com/ or www.facebook.com these two social media sites are real power house and the amount of visitor’s traffic are huge and awesome.

www.youtube.com are more my music needs from good old days of rock and roll to the current hits. One can surely find something on www.youtube.com. At the same time one can always upload their videos into youtube.com and get publicity. You can always use this media to promote your interest. I have not done this yet but definitely the day will come when I have to tap on www.youtube.com to further my success in internet marketing. Certain old movies are even uploaded here and when I have some special interest in these I will always search for them in www.youtube.com

I’m very new to www.facebook.com hop on in 2011 and here is my Facebook address www.facebook.com/harold2626 nothing fancy full just have it to keep in contact with friends and colleagues. The following here is also huge and mega and I guess on the internet marketing side one can always advertise here and I understand it is relative cheaper. This has now become a Google competitor and now that Facebook have bought whatsapp the whole landscape in internet have change.

One can see how internet has broken down borders and how fast news and information travels around the globe. We can run but we can’t hide from these changes. It’s a real fast changing world. I still recall days when you have to write an aerogramme or mail a post card or letter to someone overseas. Today there is this stuff call email, I just wrote to a guy in USA inquiring about some graphics banner and less than a day he got back to me. Not too long ago would that have been possible? The answer is crystal clear I guess!

Facebook is another communication tool with friends at any part of the world. You can always create a close group to chat with privacy. The best part about this is it’s free as long as you have an internet connection.

When I do have time (which is very rare) www.marklin.com is another site I visit. Since childhood I have always been fascinated with trains and marklin a German brand have a very special place in my heart. Someday I hope to be in Germany to visit Marklin Museum http://www.marklin.com/about/museum.html just to fulfill childhood dream. If and that’s a big if I ever make it there definitely will drop in Anfield
