Earn Money to Travel the World Using Instagram Method

Hi Reader,

You can earn money to travel the world using Instagram methods, and I will explain it to you step by step.

Before we get started, let me explain to you the technique that other internet marketers are using to make money on Instagram.

The typical method to make money on Instagram is usually:

1) Pick a niche
2) Pick an affiliate or CPA program that could be sold to said niche (1). (Affiliate or CPA programs essentially provide ways for you to sell other peoples products. If you are great at marketing and don’t want to develop your own products, that is a great way to essentially outsource your product development. There are thousands if not millions of products to sell.)
3) Create a niche Instagram page
4) Add the affiliate or CPA program in a link in the bio description
5) Use some combination of posts and call to action to click your link. For example, a person in the fitness niche may market a supplement product and entice people to purchase their supplement product by clicking to it.

So I combined and came up with this method for anyone to earn money to travel the world.

So here it is.

1) Pick a target audience within the travel niche: Maybe you can target people who travel for leisure, people who choose to travel through Europe, Islands, USA, or you can use it specifically to fuel your own adventures (and make the Instagram revolve around your amazing life). This can just be a general Instagram “travel” page, but why be the same as everyone else?

2) Start an AirBNB account and register for the “Invite” friends program. Every time someone signs up they get $40+ (toward their vacation) and you get $20+!

Again, this means every time someone starts an AirBNB account through your link AND rents a place through AirBNB, you will get $20+. I say $20+ because sometimes I get $30+ per person who registers. I don’t know how that works, but sometimes I get the chance for more money if I recommend people.

And to clarify, the person does not pay you any money. They are simply going to save money on a trip they were likely already going to take!

3) Gather between 30-50 photos tied to your travel page (you can use a creative commons website like zipplist.co to find them for free)

4) Start the Instagram page for your travel page based on part (1), and pick 30 hashtags. Also include that you can get someone $40+ for there next trip. People need an incentive!

5) Add the link to your Instagram page, and include it with the different posts of those photos from part (3).

6) Keep posting.

You can even use this copy that I wrote:

Be spontaneous, here is $40 towards your adventure.

Do you have an unplanned weekend coming up?

Probably not, because maybe you are a workaholic… but you deserve a little spice.

Even if you have work to do, take your family to a nice cabin or condo near the beach – and do your work IN STYLE, with frequent breaks of course!

One of the most popular ways to travel today is through Airbnb where you can:

+ Book locations all across the globe – Your options are limitless
+ Find an exotic private space, perfect for you and your family – Change it up from a hotel
+ Experience a new destination for a day, week, or month – You don’t have to take a full on vacation, but you can, the choice is yours.
Sometimes a change of scenery is good enough to give you a recharge.

Maybe…

there is a bright sunny beach you wanted to stay near…
there is an outdoor hiking adventure you wanted to take…
there was a special someone you wanted to experience the city with…

Airbnb has a place for you.

A space that feels new, interesting, or even nostalgic. Try it out, even if it is only a couple hours away over the next weekend.

And on top of that, if you use this link below, you can get $40 off your first adventure.

Happy traveling.

Considering Plastic Surgery? Read this book first, it will help prepare you.

This article is not written to persuade or dissuade anyone from getting plastic surgery.

Whether you want a chin augmentation, loose skin surgery, breast plastic surgery, a thigh lift, or you’re just thinking about what your rhinoplasty cost will be, consider reading the book “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz first.

Because… Beauty and success is something it would benefit you to prepare for. If and when you do get the nose surgery you have been looking for, and you look completely different, will you be prepared for it?

Maxwell Maltz was a plastic surgeon who studied why some people who became more beautiful overnight through plastic surgery did not become happier or confident. Some did become happier and more confident, but others became more depressed. And he decided to study this phenomenon and write a book about it.

You’ve probably heard it before.

  • “Money can’t buy happiness.”
  • “Beautiful people have sad eyes.”
  • “You’ll just want to get more fixed.”

As I mentioned, this article is not written to preach about the philosophy of happiness or that being happy is more important than being more attractive because being more attractive can impact your self-esteem and maybe even career or family.

But the fact remains that some people who become beautiful do not “grow into” their beauty (at least not right away). Maybe because they did not prepare for it.

“Psycho-Cybernetics” does a great job of helping readers of all types manage their self-esteem. But it is especially relevant to anyone who is considering or has undergone plastic surgery.

Pretend for a second you are unconcerned about the plastic surgery costs, and you already know who the best plastic surgeons are. Step into the future of how beautiful you imagine you will be.

If you are the humble type that just wants to “fix something that always bothered you… How prepared are you for more attention? Or how prepared are you to accept that you are suddenly at least “perceived” as better (not that you believe you are better, only that people start to treat you “differently”) by others?  Or maybe you do not feel as if you deserve what it is you thought you wanted: more beauty.

Or what happens if you believe that you are uglier? Not because of a bad surgery, but because you have not worked on your confidence enough?

Those are some real dilemmas people can end up facing according to “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz.

There is a psychology behind self-esteem, identity, and how your perspective changes when you enter a new phase of life.

If you want to live among the stars (it is ok to admit that you want to be beautiful and famous, there is nothing wrong with that) and be highly successful (and eventually well-known), there is some preparation you might have to do. If you want to receive fame and recognition for your beauty, or just be seen as more beautiful one day be sure to read “Psycho-Cybernetics.”

It will help you prepare yourself.

And if you already did your jawline surgery or thigh lift and look fantastic, and are unsure why you still feel “incomplete”, “Psycho-Cybernetics” might be able to help you find some answers, or at least provide you with some exercises to work on.

For most people, beauty doesn’t just suddenly happen.  And some people have time to adapt to their changes which can happen over many years. Therefore, it might be a good idea to prepare beforehand.

Even if you want to live a regular life and not be called on to be on the pages of a beauty or fitness magazine, you could still get some value out of Maxwell Maltz’s book to help you become the best version of yourself (and truly believe it).

Maltz does a great job of applying his knowledge as a doctor in a way that could help and benefit a lot of people.

“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey Book Review – Automate Your Life

Automate Your Life

“The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey is one of the most successful selling books on personal development. And I really like how Stephen R. Covey touches on the concept of habits because I have this theory that, if you can build habits that make people successful (or in this case effective), then you can essentially automate success (or effectiveness).

Because what are habits after all? They are things we do automatically and they can include nervous tics, reactions to stressful events, and even the way we treat other people.

The cliche quote “fake it til you make it” comes to mind. With reference to “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” in theory, if people can learn the habits of successful (or effective) people, and just start “faking those habits” over and over and over again until they become a habit, then that person can thereby have a habit that makes them successful or an eventual success, or highly effective.

The popular topic today is “computer automation” but I believe there are things that people do that are automated in life as well, and we call those automated activities or behaviors habits.

Therefore, anyone who wants to be more effective, which I believe eventually leads to a successful life, will need to learn the habits of highly effective people, then apply them. And “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” does a remarkable job of establishing what those habits are.

Isn’t it great to have someone who narrows down the habits for you? No need to study the lives of hundreds of people and find the common factors, unless that is what you want your business to be. But if you want to get straight into the details, you can just learn from Stephen R. Covey, and that is why this book is totally worth it.

Now, although I feel this book has a tremendous lot to offer, I think it misses the mark in a few areas as well.

We’ll start with some things I disliked.

The element I disliked is that the book is very perfectly designed for who I believe are “corporate types.” Most people who are seeking self-help or personal development might not pick this book up because people want to be “successful” but they don’t really care about what it takes to be “effective.”

But Covey knows better than to oversell ideas to corporate biz dev guys. Words like “The 7 Habits of Highly Successful/Wealthy/Productive/Famous People” just would not work.

But… “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” is valuable for anyone, not just the straightforward corporate audience.

Also, the writing feels very “corporate-y” in style, and the book did not keep me engaged enough and took me a while to finish reading the book even though I knew the information was valuable. He does add some great personal stories though.

Again, it is a great book that targets its’ audience very well, as opposed to trying to appeal to the “get rich quick” audience. Because habits of success are not built overnight, so this might be for the better.

My final dislike is that I personally love “how-to” books. Having read “Think and Grow Rich,” Tony Robbins books, NLP training manuals, and works by Brian Tracy, I am spoiled by personal development books with actionable how-to’s and practical steps with their main ideas.

And “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” does a great job coming up with and presenting ideas, but could do bit more on providing ideas with which to execute on. For a book on such an important topic of building the right habits to be more effective, it goes very little into getting you to establish those habits. Sure it is a motivational “get started now” type of book, but it could dive just a little deeper into the habits and how they apply.

And now for the good…

There is a reason “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” has sold over 30 million copies, and Covey has worked with some of the top leaders in the world. Because the book is fantastic at bringing together very high-level habits of effectiveness. They include what highly effective people do, and why their methods are effective.

He also shares many personal stories that tie in well that demonstrate the effectiveness of his proposals.

Furthermore, Covey does a fantastic job of tackling both personal and professional growth, and breaks down some very important ideas into behaviors such as being a better negotiator.

Overall, I would give “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” a 3.5/5. It knows its’ audience very well, and is very well organized. However, for me personally, I was looking for something to really shake me up when I read a book that has had such success with such raving reviews.

Maybe I was just not the target audience, and maybe it was over-marketed. But regardless of my opinion, as someone who studies personal development in depth, and creates personal development content, it has a lot of great information and could be a very beneficial read for anyone who wants to be more effective in any area of their life whether it is family, professional, and even in physical health.

P.S. Building the right habits can change your life and even help you automate yourself to achieve the things you want. If being an effective employee, entrepreneur, leader, family-man/woman, student, salesman, engineer, and anything else is something you think will be of value to you, be sure to read “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.”

“How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie Book Review – Fundamentals of Leadership

Fundamentals of Leadership

I read “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie three times:

  • Once in college,
  • Once when I was selling IT hardware for a big company,
  • And once in 2019 when I moved to a new city and was starting a new job. Each of these readings was a couple of years apart.

Two of the common complaints I find from people who have not read the book include “the title sounds stupid and manipulative, I want to make friends, not win people, life isn’t just about winning friends and influence!”

The second complaint is “this book can’t work for me, I am not social, attractive, or interesting enough.”

And here is the thing…

First, the book is not about manipulation. Influence is not about manipulation. Everyone learns about influence from a very young age, and some just become better at it over time.

Don’t put down the importance of influence in life simply because you are not yet good at it, or you envy those who are incredibly influential. And there is nothing wrong with having to “win” people over. Most people are too busy to make friends with everyone in the world. Friendships and personal and professional relationships can take time to craft.

How can you expect someone important and busy to just suddenly become your friend? You shouldn’t expect it. Sometimes you have to win them over, and not by beating anybody at tricking them into thinking you are a cool and interesting person. It is by applying some of the age-old wisdom of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” which everyone and anyone can learn to apply.

To address our second complaint, if you truly, deeply, stubbornly believe that “‘How to Win Friends and Influence People’ can’t work for you, and that you are not social, attractive, or interesting enough,” then there may be other books to look into.

Yes, the cover says it is “The Only Book You Need to Lead You to Success,” and while I believe it can help everyone, there might be a big personal barrier of skepticism of your own ability that you have to first overcome.

You can choose to always live in disbelief of the things that can help you, or you can pick up a copy of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” and start learning about the fundamentals of leadership.

“How to Win Friends and Influence People” does a great job of presenting the core of how all great personal and professional relationships begin and flourish. And that knowledge is valuable for business leaders, salespeople, world travelers, entrepreneurs, entertainers, artists, and more…

“How to Win Friends and Influence People” provides the foundations of:

  • The fundamental skills leaders need to have
  • How to become an incredibly valuable employee at a company
  • How to attract people who you might perceive as “more successful than you”
  • How to be charismatic and likable even if you are an introvert
  • What it takes to grow a business whether you are a contributor or the owner
  • Why some men and women seem to form valuable relationships with ease, and others struggle…

And for all of that wisdom, I give “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie a 3.5/5. Many books have been adapted off Carnegie’s book because (and this is my personal perspective) there has been a need to adapt his wisdom for the modern world. Communication is changing incredibly quickly. And the great thing about the ideas in “How to Win Friends and Influence People” is that everyone can take action on them. But in order to get the most out of the work, is to put in work, and to throw in personal substance. I also disagree that it is the “only” book for success since I am a big biased fan of “Think and Grow Rich” and “The Law of Success.” But it is a great foundation from which to build that teaches ideas that cannot be found in Napoleon Hill’s work.

It is undoubtedly worth the read though.

Dale Carnegie’s “How to Win Friends and Influence People” stands the test of time for a majority of the ideas. Even Warren Buffett took his leadership speaking course.

==> Get your copy of “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie from Amazon today.

P.S. Don’t wait to take action. The ideas in “How to Win Friends and Influence People” do require “action” on your part. You can’t “Win Friends and Influence People” without working with people and getting yourself to form those relationships. So get a copy of the book today, and start applying what you learn today.

“The Psychology of Selling” by Brian Tracy Book Review – Help More Customers

Help More Customers

I argue that Brian Tracy is and will be known as one of the most influential figures and authorities on the subject of sales, in history. And he became an authority on the subject of sales because he was an exceptional student of sales.

Through decades of experience, Brian Tracy shares some of his best knowledge in “The Psychology of Selling.” The book includes ideas and wisdom such as::

+ Minor tweaks such as words to say or actions to take to enhance your sales techniques that can have a massive impact. Remember that even minor improvements in skill can have an exponential impact.

+ Activities that will drastically improve your productivity and motivation so that you can constantly perform as a top-notch salesman to deliver more value to your boss, your customers, and therefore earn more for you and your family.

+ Expert knowledge on sales, what sales means, how sales works, why certain sales methods succeed and others fail, becoming more valuable within your organization, how to learn from the best, and so much more…

I have just barely scratched the surface on how the information provided in “The Psychology of Selling” can help you and your business.

Even if you are not a salesperson, learning the techniques will be valuable for your career because everybody sells. Everybody buys something. Even if you do not like being sold, you are being sold (or motivated to buy) every moment you watch television, walk down the street, surf the internet, or a friend or family member wants to go on an adventure with you.

Wouldn’t it be great to at least have an idea of how it all works?

Even if you are an administrator who enters data, a surgeon, or parent or young adult who wants to build a better future, this book can be valuable to you.

Again, small actions and additions of knowledge can create massive shifts in your life. Even improving one thing per day (and most of us can learn more than one thing per day), or taking the challenge of improving something by 1% every day, you can have massive improvements every year. Either 365 new things learned, or a +3700% personal improvement over 365 days if you go the percentage route.

Now imagine if you focused all of that energy into understanding “The Psychology of Selling” and how this affects just about every area of the economy. And to be able to use the ideas in “The Psychology of Selling” for your own career.

Some people might be scared of the word selling maybe because of the “old school methods”. But don’t worry, to build a long-lasting career like Brian Tracy requires tremendous integrity of information. Unscrupulous people have not built careers like Tracy who preserved his knowledge through his lectures and books.

And any true salesperson knows that everyone today is smarter than they were 20, 10, 5, even 1 year ago! Things that worked yesterday will not work today. And every good salesperson knows that sales are not about convincing or tricking people. It is about doing your very best to help a customer get what they want or need in the most effective way possible. And yes, sometimes your customer is your boss or company you work for too.

So when you take a read into “The Psychology of Selling” you are learning some of the greatest ethical sales methods every established in history.

But there are two caveats with “The Psychology of Selling.”

One, that it is a bit outdated in the sense that sales have changed, and at least a good handful of savvy businesspeople have learned about some of the strategies proposed by Brian Tracy. As a matter of fact, just to be competitively even, you may want to know the ideas in ‘The Psychology of Selling.”

The second caveat is most millennials, younger generations, or introverts probably won’t want to read “The Psychology of Selling” it because they hear about the great opportunities as being in online marketing.

Most millennials and future generations are going to hear about advertising online, making money from home, and selling as a form of writing or e=mail or social media marketing as opposed to the face to face and door to door interactions of the past. They might never have to experience a face-to-face rejection in the future and still be able to build a successful business.

But the fact is, even for those people who are not in face-to-face sales, knowing the techniques is still important, especially if you plan on growing your business. Plus, if you want to “stand out” in the future, having the knowledge in “The Psychology of Selling” will be valuable when others are over-knowledgeable about marketing and under-knowledgeable about selling.

And in terms of dating (timewise, not relationship-wise) the material, Brian Tracy even created a course called “21st Century Sales Training” which addresses the issues that some more traditional tactics need to be adapted for the future. While he does not specify which ones, I imagine some of the ideas in “The Psychology of Selling” could be re-worked, but there are still many great fundamentals. And for all those reasons, I give “The Psychology of Selling” a 4/5.

P.S. Don’t just think about “The Psychology of Selling” as a book on selling. Brian Tracy also shares many ideas on personal development, and how to be more persuasive which can be useful no matter where you work or what age you are.

Two book recommendations that will make you a better writer over night

Writing is one of the top skills today for anyone who wants to start their own independent business, and you can improve your writing skills overnight by reading these two books. Estimated time is about 4.5 total hours.

Even if you can build a website…
Even if you can get a bunch of followers to your social media…
Even if you can create an email list…

You will need some level of skill in writing or at least a partner who handles the writing. But writers are expensive. Even video and audio often requires a good writer if you are trying to sell something, or at least know the skills of how to create advertising copy.

But it isn’t just any type of writing.

There is a very specific skill internet/digital marketers and advertisers need, and that is the ability to write persuasively, or also known as copywriting.

After studying a handful of courses on copywriting, along with the video sales letters and sales page letters of some of my favorite online products, I came across these two books:

“This book will teach you to write better” by Neville Medhora
and
“The Boron Letters” by Gary and Bond Halbert

And best yet, they can both be read consecutively, between your evening dinner and breakfast the next morning. You’ll even have time to grab some zzz’s.

Combined, those books will teach you to:

+ Write for impact and action
+ Capture people’s attention through your words
+ Grasp some of the fundamental techniques used by the top persuasive writers
+ Make friends with the people you are writing to who you eventually want to have as clients
+ Use powerful frameworks and methods to apply to your writing so it sounds better without even having to learn new grammar techniques
+ and much more…

These are impactful, straight to the point books with just enough details to get you going.

Wish you the best

P.S. If you want to become an entrepreneur or start an online business, Content is King. Even if you do not want to be a writer, having knowledge in this area will be valuable, and you can learn some tactics over night! So check out the books on Amazon:

“One Up on Wall Street” by Peter Lynch Book Review – Open Your Eyes to the Opportunity Around You

Open Your Eyes to the Opportunity Around You

Warren Buffet is reportedly worth over $81,935,540,999. Part of the reason for his wealth is he is a meticulous supergenius (when it comes to business) with over half a century worth of experience at choosing companies to invest in.

But just because Warren Buffett reads the charts every single day, and works with some of the smartest business leaders in the world doesn’t mean you need that to do all that to pick a good stock.

Sure, if you want to start the next Berkshire Hathaway, you will have a lot of years of work and study left ahead of you.

But if you are tired of losing money to inflation, and/or want to watch your money grow, investing in stocks is just one method to grow your money, and you don’t need to be Warren Buffett to do it. You can’t try to be like him if you don’t invest any money in the first place, but then again, don’t even bother trying to be like Warren Buffett.

At most, study his work, but no one is ever going to call you Warren Buffett (unless you are Warren Buffett)… The reason I keep mentioning Warren Buffett is to demonstrate an outlier of what people might perceive stock investing to be. It doesn’t need to be that “far out of current reach.”

You cannot expect to be an outlier before you ever risk your first dollar. You have to at least learn some of the tactics first…

And here is where “One Up on Wall Street” by Peter Lynch comes in…

Everyone has a chance to be successful at picking and investing in stocks.

If you read the famous Benjamin Graham book “The Intelligent Investor,” you might have gotten intimidated about investing by all the charts and math, and perhaps the fact that the rates and company data is very outdated.

But Peter Lynch shares many tips and secrets on how to find stocks that are sometimes literally right in front of you. For example, the next company that could be a great investment is:

  • The company that makes your mobile device
  • The IPO on your next mobile app
  • That random hotel you stayed in when you were driving across the country…

You don’t need to be a supergenius. There is a great investment story that Peter Lynch talks about that might even make you listen to your wife or girlfriend more…

Sure, if you want to be one of the worlds richest men, you will need to do more than just read a few books about investing.

“One Up on Wall Street” is a fantastic read that can help you get started looking for those investment opportunities that are all around you.

As with all investing, yes there is a chance to lose money, and yes there is a level of uncertainty and risk. But you can reduce the risk by learning from some of the best, and Peter Lynch is one of the best.

“One Up on Wall Street” is a remarkable book even if it is the first book you ever pick up about stocks. And fortunately for those of you who get bored easily, Peter Lynch has a great way of turning his successes and failures into stories that you can apply to your life to help you get started on investing.

Everyone needs to take the first step.

You don’t need to spend 10 hours a day reading company Annual Reports, and you don’t need to research every single company out there before making a decision.

You can read “One Up on Wall Street” and start recognizing the opportunities right in front of you.

And here is the other thing that gets repeated in work by Buffett and Lynch – the idea that there is something more important than simply “choosing a stock based on what you read on a report.” That is understanding their management team…

If you have ever wondered “how do some people pick winners” in the stock market, Peter Lynch shares many of his hows. But be warned, there is some math and a few charts to study.

And after all this has been said, you will still need to do your research even after reading “One Up on Wall Street,” but at least you will have a foundation of where to start or even continue your search for your winner.

Plus Peter Lynch makes it all crisp and clear to understand.

I had to re-read a few sections multiple times, and there were a few sections I did not fully grasp personally, but overall, I think this is a fantastic book that turns something intimidating to many people into something that is more accessible.

With that, I give “One Up on Wall Street” a 5/5. It isn’t often that you get an investor like Peter Lynch who shares the methods that helped make him and his clients HUGE TREMENDOUS BOUNTIFUL TONS of money, in a way that everyone can understand. And Peter Lynch also goes over some of the other skills you need such as emotional management and rationality.

“Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz Book Review – Prepare for Beauty and Success

Prepare for Beauty and Success

Are you ready for beauty and success? If you magically become more attractive, wealthier, more physically fit, or more successful overnight, month, or even a couple of years will you be ready for it mentally and spiritually?

Here is some information you can find online about the “Psycho-Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz. In a gist, Maxwell Maltz was a surgeon who studied why some people who became more beautiful overnight through surgery did not become happier or confident. Some did, in fact, become happier and more confident, but others became more depressed.

You’ve probably heard it before.

  • “Not all rich people are happy.”
  • “Money can’t buy happiness.”
  • “Beautiful people have sad eyes.”

Now I’m not here to preach about the philosophy of happiness or that being happy is always more important than money because money can help you purchase the time and things that can make you happy whether that is a vacation, a new fresh and clean wardrobe, or a great dinner for you and your family.

But the fact remains that some people who become beautiful or successful have not “grow into it.” They may not have prepared for it.

“Psycho-Cybernetics” does a great job of helping readers manage their self-esteem.

Some people are not prepared for more attention or are unprepared to accept that they are at least “perceived” as better (not that they believe that they are better, only that people start to treat them “differently”).  Or maybe they do not feel as if they deserve what it is they thought they wanted.

These are real problems people face.

There is a psychology behind self-esteem, identity, and how your perspective changes when you enter a new phase of life.

If you want to live among the stars (it is ok, just admit that you want to be famous, there is nothing wrong with that) and be highly successful (and eventually well-known), there is some preparation you might have to do. If you have the belief it will happen to you one day, be sure to look into “Psycho-Cybernetics.”

And if you have already reached a level of success or fame, and you are unsure why you feel down sometimes, “Psycho-Cybernetics” might be able to help you find some answers, or at least provide you with some exercises to work on

For most people, beauty doesn’t just suddenly happen, and huge amounts of money don’t suddenly flow into the bank account overnight.  And some people have time to adapt to the changes. Therefore, it might be good to prepare beforehand.

Even if you want to live a regular life and not be called on to be on the pages of a beauty or fitness magazine, you could still get some value out of this book to help you become the best version of yourself (and truly believe it).

To rate it, I’ll give “Psycho-Cybernetics” a 4/5 because I think Maltz did a great job of applying his knowledge as a doctor in a way that could help and benefit a lot of people. -1 because there is some more repetitive information that you’ve probably read in other personal development books, although he does an awesome job of putting his twist on it, sometimes it felt like he added ideas to make the book “longer.” But overall, it is a fantastic, and helpful read.

South Asian (India, Bangladesh, etc) Companies/Freelancers: try this technique to get more customers

It is well known that South Asian (Bangladesh, India, Nepal, etc…) companies and freelancers have quickly taken over the world of IT and digital/internet marketing. You’ll be hard-pressed to find any outsourcing website that does not have a ton of great people from India offering SEO or some other marketing work.

I get many messages offering digital marketing work from India specifically, and I also find a lot of foreign digital marketing talent on outsourcing websites such as FIverr, Freelancer, and UpWork.

And as someone studying copywriting, there is one obvious update the majority of the pitches from South Asian Companies/Freelancers can make to get more customers…

The messages tend to look like this:

They don’t talk about the benefits or what all of those “activities” do. There is usually a big ol’ list of skills or actions you will take.

Most copywriters/salespeople/marketers know the idea that spouting out features is only useful in certain situations. But to really draw the customer in…

you’re going to want to talk about the benefits and “what it does.”

The action here, for South Asian Companies/Freelancers isn’t even about improving grammar (which is a big challenge for non-English speakers). It is simply about adding benefit or “what it does” statements.

Because not everyone knows what:

– Removing Broken Links does
– SEO Friendly means
– On page or Off page SEO does
– Meta tag updates mean for the customer
and more…

Now if you are a regular on BHW or have studied internet marketing for even a month, you probably know what a lot of those “things do.” And you might say, “well customers are smart, and they want to see exactly what skills we have…”

Or maybe you assume that the only people buying the services are people who know the digital marketing terms… But sometimes it might just be a philosophy/theatre double major who wants to start a blog and make money from it, and all they want to do is write.

Or maybe it’s someone who wants to teach people how to make videos, and has little sense of all those fancy digital marketing terms…

So if we believe in the concepts developed by some of the worlds top copywriters and salespeople: to talk about benefits (or what a feature does), then here is the actionable takeaway.

For every “skill,” add a benefit statement, or combine skills together, and talk about the benefits, and it can look something like this…

Instead of:

SEO Friendly
Fast Crawling
Keyword Research
Meta tags updation (title & Description tags)
Image Optimization (alt tags)
Resolve Webmaster Crawl Errors

You can do:

SEO Friendly – BETTER Search Engine Rankings
Fast Crawling – Search engines find your website easier
Keyword Research – MORE customers will find you!
Meta tags updation (title & Description tags) – Get More Search Traffic
Image Optimization (alt tags) – SEARCH ENGINES can find you through your photos!
Resolve Webmaster Crawl Errors – MAKE Your website work better and your customers will love you for it!

Or you can try:

Our services will help your website:

+ Rank Better on Search Engines
+ Get found more easily, more viewers, and therefore more potential customers
+ Improve the overall efficiency of your website so you keep your visitors on your website!

Then for those technical people who happen to want to know your services, you can always tell them later, or list them…

But don’t forget the benefits, or “what your skill does for your customer” when they pay for your service.

Happy marketing.

“Think and Grow Rich” by Napoleon Hill Book Review – Open Your Mind

Open Your Mind

Published in 1937, “Think and Grow Rich” is an important piece of American literature, and I argue that Napoleon Hill deserves a globally recognized economic award.  Many of today’s top experts in personal development have adapted some of the ideas developed by Napoleon Hill, which he credits to some of the greatest leaders in American history including Thomas Paine, Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Andrew Carnegie, John D. Rockefeller, Luther Burbank, and much more…

“Think and Grow Rich” is a how to become rich and successful, personal growth and development, history, and philosophy book all wrapped into one.

But let’s be clear here, if you are looking for the secret to getting rich quick, you won’t find it… you won’t find it anywhere for that matter.

“Think and Grow Rich” is more of a book from which to build a strong foundation as you pursue your next big idea. And by that I mean, if you dream of building the next unicorn mobile app company, open a restaurant, or space travel company like Elon Musk, you will likely want to study specifically how to build a successful mobile app, how to manage a restaurant, and how Elon Musk got started.

What “Think and Grow Rich” does, is it provides ANYONE, not only the world’s supergenius’s, with exact steps and knowledge from which to start pursuing your biggest life’s goals, because in the United States it is possible for everyone. And it is an exceptional resource for that.

Consider that the book was published in 1937, and was being developed throughout the Great Depression. If you are into marketing, you might realize that it was a brilliant time to come up with a book like “Think and Grow Rich” to help the millions of people who suffered from The Depression.

And education, skills, and technology were far less advanced back in 1937.

Let that sink in.

Before 1940 less than 5% of the American population went to college. Today in 2019, more than 30% of Americans have a four-year degree.

And “Think and Grow Rich” was made to help everyone, not just the most educated and privileged people, although it could be beneficial to you as well if you are in the top percentage of people in America.

What’s more…

“Think and Grow Rich” doesn’t just help you figure out how to earn riches. It helps provide you the ideas and philosophies with which to keep your riches.

All these factors tie together to make “Think and Grow Rich” a 4.5/5.

I subtract 0.5 points because “Think and Grow Rich” is actually a condensed version of his original “The Law of Success in Sixteen Lessons.” Most people might not read the full text of “The Law of Success” but once you read it, you will feel “Think and Grow Rich” could have added so much more (which are in “The Law of Success”).

It might not be fair that I am judging “Think and Grow Rich” with foreknowledge… but be sure to read it because it can help guide you where you want to go.

Here is the toughest thing though, and why I start this post with “Open Your Mind.” It isn’t about meditation or mindfulness although those are some valuable activities. It is about being open to the possibilities in your own life! And that is easier said than done.

It took me three readings of “Think and Grow Rich” over a period of about 4 years before some of it finally started to click. Call me stubborn or whatever, but if you can truly open your mind and read the book, it will be incredibly helpful to you.
