John JonasWelcome to this new episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  The special guest this week is Mr. John Jonas, who has been making between six and seven figures online since 2004 and has literally helped thousands of entrepreneurs succeed by teaching them how to replace themselves.  Of course, as they stop doing the grunt work in their business, essentially becoming the CEO of their own business, they tend to be more successful.  One of Jonas’ sites is called ReplaceMyself.com, and another one is OnlineJobs.ph.  He’s got a few other ones as well, but for the most part, John helps entrepreneurs implement everything that they should with the help of an outsourcer or outsourcers.

The Promise of Time

I think if people are willing to implement something, we are promising them time.  You will get time back, and you’ll learn a way to hire someone that’s different than most people teach. I work about 7 hours a week.  I’ve been to Tim Ferris’ 4-Hour Workweek, and it’s not enough for me.  I’ve just got to have something to spend my time on.  But, I play golf, and I exercise with my wife.  I do it every day.  You know, you spend your time however you want to spend your time when you have other people doing most of your work for you.

For me, it’s part of who I am.  I really want to run a business, and build a business, that is automated.  I don’t feel like, if I’m doing the work, that I’m succeeding.  That’s probably just part of who I am.  For a lot of people, though, they want to spend their time better.  They just want to spend time with their family, or they just want to spend their time golfing, or whatever it is.  In my experience, this is how you do it, you hire other people. [bctt tweet="Succeeding as an entrepreneur is just easier when you have help." username="danielhall"]

Daniel HallToday I'm going to talk about the best practices checklist we use in house for our day to day email marketing. Email marketing is a big deal within my business. Email is my primary marketing vehicle. In spite of the fact that email deliverability has become more difficult, emailing your list is still the most potent and effective marketing tool.  Be that as it may, the use of “best practices” will help ensure that every email stands the best chance of hitting its intended mark.   Accordingly, what follows is a checklist designed to be used before sending any email.

Use it yourself or provide this list to whomever sends your email.  Some of these suggestions may seem like common sense, but I find this list to be very useful, ensuring that nothing is forgotten.  Let's get started. [bctt tweet="If you want your emails to be taken seriously, they must be free of misspellings and grammatical mistakes." via="no"]

Connecting with Bruce

There are two ways.  One, come over and join the Facebook group.  Just search on “How to Publish Your Book”.  It’s on Facebook, and it’s in Groups.  Just search up at the top, and you’ll see it.  Come and join.  We’d love to have you in the community.  The second is, I have BrucetheBookGuy.com.  It’s the blog website that goes along with all of the publishing things that I’m doing.  You can find out about the courses, and the articles, and all of the content that I’ve released in all of my products there.  Everything is there.  So, those are the two ways, but I guess, the Facebook is probably the easiest and the best, and you can get right to me directly through Facebook.

Daniel HallLet me start with a big bold statement… ready? Properly using quality public domain content can transform your writing and publishing endeavors and be way more profitable than you can imagine. In this short episode I intend to show you my top six reasons for using public domain content.  Hold on tight, here we go… First, let me give you a brief definition of what public domain is.  According to the University of California…

The public domain is generally defined as consisting of works that are either ineligible for copyright protection or with expired copyrights. No permission whatsoever is needed to copy or use public domain works. The definition gives rise to the first reason you should use public domain content in your writing/ publishing endeavors; namely, flexibility. That is, if a work is in the public domain then it can be used in any way, by any citizen of the country where it is in the public domain, without asking for permission and without paying royalties (using public domain is FREE). Effectively you can use the content: sell it, change it, add to it or subtract from it without limitation. The sky is the limit with public domain. The long and the short of it is if you find a suitable public domain work you can use it in any way you wish.  That is ultimate flexibility. [bctt tweet="The library of public domain content is so vast and rich that you would never run out of it." username="danielhall"]

Daniel HallOne of the fastest ways to grow your company is to do business with influence centers in your niche. The problem for most business owners is they have no relationship with influencers who could help them. Fortunately, doing business with influencers in your field is not as hard as you might think. Why is this?  It boils down to this one simple truth: everybody needs something. This basic concept is the engine that drives the economy. You can use it to create and nurture relationships with top influencers in your market.

What Does Not Work in Creating New Relationships with Influencers

Before we jump into these strategies it would be helpful for you to understand what does NOT work in creating new relationships with people who could help you. 

Download the Complete PDF Show Notes Free for this Episode

One of the worse things you can do when you want to do business with someone new is to approach them as an unknown person and ask them to do something for YOU.  This happens frequently in my business.  People will email or call and ask if I can promote them or send an email to my list for them.  All too often I have no clue who these people are, the quality of their products and services and most importantly their business ethics.   So I usually respond with a polite “no thanks” if I give them a response at all. My point is this: [bctt tweet="Don’t start a new potentially beneficial relationship by asking someone you don’t know to do something for you." via="no"]In fact, it is best to take the polar opposite approach. That is, figure out something you can do for them and remember the sage wisdom that “everybody needs something.”

James J JonesToday, we promise to show folks how to shortcut any system or process that you’re using and get right down to, “Is this going to make me money,” or “Is this going to be effective or not?” I see so many people who are just spinning their wheels.  I guess the old phrase “putting the cart before the horse,” kind of applies here.  I see so many people doing that, and with one little mindset tweak, you can completely eliminate that out of your life. I look at it more from a “making money online” type of perspective, but really you could use this for any process.  Today, we’ll be discussing this in the context of making more money in your business, making money online, and growing your business.

Developing Template-Based Products

Today, I’m promising to deliver a method for monetizing your work and re-purposing material that you may have developed as well as making use of the community that you are trying to gather around yourself – with templates. [bctt tweet="The benefit of developing template-based products is being able to monetize on the work you’ve already created." via="no"] Or it’s creating another product very quickly.  It’s also the advantage of being able to quickly create a product that could be massively helpful to a lot of people. Templates and checklists.  I love them.  I love using them and I love making them for people because they love them.  This is my process, which I have developed with my partner Tracy Atkins.

Richard RiemanWelcome to this episode of the Real Fast Results podcast!  Today, you’re going to have the chance to learn about creating and selling audiobooks.  Back in the day ACX (and similar services to that) didn’t exist, and in order to do an audiobook, you would have to spend $3,000-$4,000 up front just to get it out into the marketplace.  ACX stands for (Audiobook Creation Exchange), by the way.  If you’re interested in creating audiobooks, you are in the right place because Richard Rieman is here to share with us what he knows. Richard is an audio book self-publishing expert, the owner of Audiobook Revolution Productions, and the author of The Author’s Guide to Audiobook Creation.  He helps self-published writers get their audiobooks out into the marketplace.  He both produces and narrates audiobooks.  In fact, he’s narrated dozens of titles on Amazon, Audible, iTunes, and many other platforms.  Prior to his audiobook adventures, Mr. Rieman was a news anchor and reporter for RKO Radio Networks in New York and WTOP in Washington D.C. as well as NBC and ABC Radio in Chicago.  Without further ado, Mr. Richard Rieman…

How to Make Money with Audiobooks

I promise that I will show you how to make money with audiobooks. [bctt tweet="You can make more money with audiobooks than you can with eBooks these days." username="danielhall"]Audiobooks are exploding right now.  The growth is tremendous, and sales are up 35% so far this year, after growth of 20% the last two years.  Audible listening is up 38%.  So this is a way to re-purpose your existing content and make more money. You’ve already written the lyrics, now add the song.  Add the voice to it and create an audiobook.

In this interview you will discover:

  •  There are fewer audiobooks per genre, so it’s easier to find the audiobook version that you have out there.
  • Amazon's  Whispersync program.
  • Audiobook listeners are fans.  You’re building your fan base from everything that you do, whether it is the written or spoken word that you are providing. 
  • You can put your audiobook up for virtually no cost.
  • Sites you can used to record your audiobook.
