Ace ChapmanPlease welcome Ace Chapman to the show today.  Ace basically bought his first business when he was only 19 years old.  A mere babe.  It was an online stock simulator called Cool Wall Street.  After selling it and seeing the benefits of buying the business over starting one, he has bought and sold over 30 businesses and helped his clients, all over the world, buy 100 businesses.

Learning from Buying

I’m excited about what we’re going to promise folks today because this is something that has been overlooked in the space.  Every interview I get on, people are like, “Okay, how do we buy a business?  How do I go out and buy one, or find something with some synergistic value and buy it?”  One of the keys, before you get to that point, is something that we’ve been taking advantage of for a really long time, and it’s the fact that some of the most valuable information is learned while you’re looking for potential businesses to buy.  So, we’re going to talk about the process of going to the market, seeing what’s on the market, getting prospectuses, and looking through those because you never know where you are going to find that amazing deal that you want to buy.

You always want to be in the market, looking for potential deals.  But, you’re also going to learn what other businesses around you are doing to be really successful. [bctt tweet="You’re going to learn how to take your business to a whole new level by just shopping for businesses for sale." username="danielhall"]In other words, you’re basically going to be able to educate yourself on what’s out there and what they are doing, and that way, you can take bits and pieces of what they are learning and plug it into your own business, your existing business, to make it more profitable.

In this interview you will discover:

  • How to take the info you learn about other businesses and apply it to yours
  • Different ways of doing businesses
  • BizBuySell.com A site where brokers and individuals go to buy businesses

Brian G. JohnsonToday we’re going to talk about how to take that “thing” that you’ve had forever and actually create an asset without doing a whole lot of extra stuff.  We’re talking about that YouTube channel that’s been sitting on the back burner, that’s kind of collecting dust, and right now, it could be collecting more leads and more sales. For me, personally, I use YouTube to drive sales, to build a list, and to really get great results.  This is something that I’ve been doing since 2007, and I’ve been doing it just kind of matter-of-factly.  I’ve seen these results.  I’ve seen traffic to my website. I’ve seen sales, and I thought, “How can we improve upon that?”  Really, what I have studied in the past 8 months is really all around that. The promise is: [bctt tweet="How to take your YouTube channel, drive more traffic to it and convert the traffic into leads/sales " username="danielhall"]And ultimately create an asset that is valuable and important to your business. One of the great things about YouTube videos is that you can put them up and people can access them, so you have this ability to cast a wider net.  You can reach out and connect with people who have never  otherwise heard of you.

Not only can people access the information, not only can you provide a huge, valuable resource for other people, but other people that don’t have any idea who you are can find those videos.  Right now, if you were to search for “Apple Branding,” my video ranks #1, and then, all of the other videos on Page 1, the first 10, they’re two years old, they’re three years old, and I think, like, the sixth video is 10 years old. Imagine really having the foresight to build a channel out.  Not just to think, “Hey, YouTube is where I stick my videos.  That’s my video hosting,” but to build a channel, and to be able to drive views that can bring people on your list, or to sell products, or to really gain that exposure and authority.  To me, that was one of the reasons why I wanted to dive in.  I couldn’t think of any other platform that would allow me to drive traffic year after year, like YouTube can and does.

In this interview Brian teaches:

  • The importance of building a YouTube Channel
  • Why you should not use YouTube just to store your videos
  • About Value Proposition
  • How to brand your YouTube Channel
  • How to design your YouTube Channel
  • Creating content
  • Audience retention
  • Making videos
  • Getting Real Fast Results

Nick Loper I think the promise that I want to put forward is kind of a new way of thinking.  Everyone wants to make money online.  Everyone wants to have a business.  I want us to take a step back and think about where that money comes from.  Somebody has to buy whatever it is that you’re selling.  The result that I’m after today, and what I’m after in the Buy Buttons book, is that there are a bunch of fast track marketplaces where you can get in front of a pre-existing audience of buyers.  That exists in dozens and dozens of different niches, for whatever skills or products that you have to offer.  That’s the result that we’re after. We have had people in my book, and that I’ve met through my podcast, that are making anywhere from $100 a month, on the side and that they are happy with it because it’s play money, up to $10,000 a month or more.  So, it’s more like, “Why do you want to make that money?  What does that afford you?  What is that going to buy you?  What does that mean in terms of your lifestyle?”  Probably the common theme of what we’re all after is to do something that we’re interested in, to do something that excites us, and ultimately, allows us to lead a happier life as a result. Download the Complete PDF Show Notes Free for this Episode That’s kind of what I’m after, and I just get a kick out of running these different experiments and seeing what works and what doesn’t.  That’s wonderful.  So, it comes down to doing work that you love and trying to figure out to monetize that while making an impact in other people’s lives. [bctt tweet="The bigger and more valuable the asset, the more money you can make." username="danielhall"]

In this interview you will learn about:

  • Peer-to-Peer Economy
  • The Sharing Economy (and websites to go to)
  • Marketplaces to Sell Your Skills (and websites)
  • Marketplaces to Sell Physical Products (and websites)

We’re promising people real fast results.  I’m assuming that you are an author, a speaker, or a coach (or that you have some level of expertise) and that you want to share that expertise with the world.  When you get right into it, it’s quite easy to go to your local college, put a class together and teach it.  But, you know, there are 10 people there and nine of them are totally uninterested in what you have to say.  That’s not really fair or true, but you know, what we want to do is to impact the world.  So, how can we have real fast results in terms of building our credibility?  That’s what I want to talk about today. [bctt tweet="Whatever your expertise is, you’re going to create a very short course that you can put up on Udemy." username="danielhall"]

Connie Ragen GreenToday, we are going to be talking about re-purposing your content, which is HUGE!  I’ve been able to re-purpose my content for years now.  I have been online almost 10 years now.  So, for quite a few years, I’ve taken something very simple, like a blog post, and I’ve been able to re-purpose it into so many things.  This includes 14 bestselling books, international speaking gigs, just everywhere on every topic, and being able to connect with people who want to study with me.  These are people who I mentor.

Essentially, when you review this material, you’re going to learn to take content that’s in one type of format, such a blog article, and repackage it so that it’s in other formats and can be used in different ways.  So, the core of the content remains the same, but you can sometimes tweak it to fit another audience, thereby leveraging the same work over and over again.  The truth is that this is incredibly powerful.  Here’s an example.  I was just speaking to a group of authors over in London.  That’s not my primary audience, but I was able to re-purpose other presentations that I’ve done for online entrepreneurs and various groups to make it very specific for the authors, without having to redo the entire presentation. [bctt tweet="Re-purposing content is a great way to leverage your efforts." username="danielhall"]

In this podcast you will discover:

  • How to figure out what type of content your audience wants
  • How to re-purpose information you already have onto different platforms
  • Connie's Concept - “Book, Blog, Broadcast.”
  • Marketing Your Content
  • Outsourcing

Andrew LockI thought that we would talk about one of the ways, and I believe it’s the best way, online to get residual income.  Sometimes this is referred to as recurring income or passive income.  That’s money where you do the majority of the work upfront, and then you continue to get paid over and over again, without limit, just like a songwriter gets paid for writing a song.  They get the royalties, and they continue to come in over the years.

What I find with membership sites, on any topic, is that people tend to sign up and become a member. [bctt tweet="When people sign up for membership sites, they join for the content and stay for the community." username="danielhall"]That’s kind of a big breakthrough, to understand that. They think that they want the information, but actually, what they really want is to interact with, connect with, share ideas with, ask for feedback from, ask questions of, and so on, among other people who are interested in the same topic.

6 Steps to a Successful Membership Site

I’ve developed a blueprint with six steps that I think are very logical…A logical sequence of things that need to be done, with the ultimate aim of having this residual income, because that means a lot less stress in your life.  It can also lead to financial freedom, because you know, you really can make good money from this.  The steps are:
  • Step #1 is to choose a topic.
  • Step #2 is to pick a platform.
  • Step #3 is to add content (and a community, if that’s relevant)
  • Step #4 is to attract members
  • Step #5 is to make money
  • Step #6 is to keep members
If you take all of these steps, you’ll have a successful membership site.

Bob JenkinsOn today’s episode, my mission is to share with each of you how to get 10x more leads from your website with a few hidden places to generate those leads.  You can’t just survive with a few landing pages.  You can’t just survive with a sidebar opt-in form.  There are a lot of different places where you could maximize your website’s results in the sense of lead generation, and of course, with that lead generation being targeted, get better results from the other side, as they become customers.

5 Tactics to Improve Your List Building on Your Website

  1. Blog Posts - One of the things that I want you to do is to take a look at the five most profitable blog posts that you’ve ever written.
  2. Content - The second place is also inside of your content.  Now, this content can be on your own blog, and it can also be on guest posts within other people’s websites.
  3. 404 Error Page - The third place, on your website, that I want you to use to increase your leads is what’s called a “404 Error” page.  You may not know this, but if you were to go to your own website right now, and type in YourWebsiteDomain.com/blahblahblah, unless you’ve written a post by the name of blahblahblah, you’re going to find yourself on a 404 Error page.  In case you didn’t know, 404 is just the number that the computer geeks of the world came up with as the error code when a page doesn’t exist.
  4. Navigation Bar -I want you to have an opt-in opportunity in your navigation bar.  You know how people have their header, and they have a graphic, and they have a big opt-in box in there?
  5. Thank You Page - We’re going to talk about your “thank you” page So, your “thank you” page is a place a lot of people ignore, but when you are thinking about how to get more people on your list, and you spend all of your time optimizing your landing page, you spend all of your time optimizing your opt-in form, your lead boxes on your website, and all of this kind of stuff, and they say “yes”, what do they get to on the next page?

In this podcast you will also discover:

  • What a lead magnet is and how to make one.
  • How to set up offers on your 404 Error Pages.
  • In depth information on each of the 5 tactics.
  • How to connect with Bob Jenkins

Heather Havenwood The promise is that if you’re an expert in your field, at any level, the best way to get people to become attracted to you is by leveraging other people’s lists.  We’ve heard this before.  Now, in the real estate world, we call that using other people’s money, but in the information and the marketing space, we call it leveraging other people’s lists.  Then, in the podcast world, you leverage the list of the podcast that you’re guest speaking on.  What you want to do is start learning the art of podcasting and being a guest.  So that is what we’re going to talk about today, being a guest on other people’s shows.

Benefits of Being a Podcast Guest

  • Traffic
  • List building

3 Steps to Being a Great Podcast Guest

  1. Structure - Okay, just to give you the world of “structure”.  What structure is for me, what I think that is, is that you want to make it easy for people to say “yes” to you.  Now, what does that look like as a host?  When my people reach out to a host, I have things like a media page ready to go, with all my images ready to go, my bio ready to go.
  2. Setup - Setup is having this thing called a microphone, and having a dedicated line, not on a WiFi. Again, I feel like this should be common sense, but there are times when you get on the phone with someone, to interview them and they’re on a WiFi.  You can’t do that when you’re dealing with audio and visual.  You have to upgrade your AT&T, or Google Fiber, or whatever.
  3. Promotion - Now, think about this.  None of us like to promote ourselves because we are taught at a very young age not to be narcissistic.  It’s very counter-intuitive when it comes to podcasting because your host already has a party going on, and then you have to go and invite yourself to the party.
