Home Blog – My Brain On,….Limited Time Only!

Ever get overwhelmed by your current “To Do” schedule? I have and my solutions are not exactly how I thought it would be but I did get a solution. Sharing a bit of what I’ve learned up to this point with my Franchise and what’s been happening with GenEnTech00 (parent company) lately. Oh yeah, some reader comments and answers too! Let’s get started!

What happened to my site?!

Hey! Where's My Site?

Hey! Where’s My Site?

You may find yourself at a point in your blogging or marketing life where you will have to say goodbye to some of your creations. I have been pushing my own limits and that tiny rubber-band broke, POW (yeah, gotta work on my sound effects)! You can no longer find my plug-in offer site GTGuilloryrapidmarketing, or the alternate blog genguilloryonline.com. There still floating out there somewhere in Internet space and maybe if your that curious (please get a life), you may still be able to see them. I wasn’t able to make time for them anymore, between media buys, maintaining 2 blogs and loading another site/blog. Something had to give (actually a lot of something), so for now the media buying will grind down to a trickle and I’ve freed up more time to devote to the Franchise (he keeps talking about that!). I just hope that those examples provided enough of the help I intended….farewell, you did me proud (the slow tear falling from one eye).

Information Overload!

To Do List Heaven - Sticky Notes

To Do List Heaven – Sticky Notes

If you have read more than a few of my articles you know I a big believer in “To Do” lists! I’ve got sticky notes all over the place! Maybe that’s not for you, or you just need something more organized before those that same the same living space go all Jakie Chan on you and your sticky’s? Sticky notes are my key to getting my tasks done but I was made aware of something that does the same thing and doesn’t need wall space! Have you ever heard of Simpleology.com? It’s basically a software that helps you to organize and meet your day to day, week to week..etc. Close to a virtual assistant to help you get things done and best of all, it’s free! There are some more advanced versions but you won’t need those right away. It even has a simple training program to get you familiar with how it works, go try Simpleology.com.

Share Some of That Franchise Stuff!

I Want My Retreat Too!

I Want My Retreat Too!

Training and more training, what did you expect? I’m getting some great behind the scenes stuff done and also found out that I missed out on a killer retreat! The big “marketer on the higher reality” (the creator and owner of the Franchise Biz, let’s call him Mothra, yes it was a giant moth but hey it’s what I came up with), invites everyone at every level to a retreat every year! You’re gonna love this, he invites everyone to this retreat to hear from some of the biggest names in the industry! You (that would be me, maybe you too later) get to also meet other franchise owners that have been having success! Awards are given, local dances and traditional shows, the whole nine! Here’s the kicker, you can bring your wife, husband, kids and all you have to do is take action with your Franchise and pay for the tickets getting you there and back! It’s gets even better, Mothra PAYS for everything else!!!! Food, 5 star hotel stay, drinks, activities, all on big Mothra’s dime! Get this, the one I didn’t know about last year was in Fiji! Can you picture that? Over here! Yes please! Hopefully when I open the doors to the Franchise you will get on board too, then you can meet me there! Come on, you know you want to!

Reader Comments & Quests

Comment: Find the latest news and updates right here!

Wouldn’t you know that’s an actual comment on one of the posts here! Made me think, what latest news and updates did I write about? Not sure but I’m here to help, (note to self, stop making these notes because I can’t find them later!). Ooookaaaay…here goes!

Have you heard the latest in hacking? Some well known marketers have been getting hacked! Not like you would first think either, these hackers are using these big names as bait to send out spam stuff! So I have a question for everyone, if you have an idea of how to prevent this please leave comments and suggestions about this please! I had an account hacked once and that nut is still out there somewhere (I still can’t talk about it, sniffles).

Question: Is it hard to start up a blog and does it require a massive effort?

Answer: I’m going to stick to my guns and say “no”, it doesn’t take a Herculean effort or a tremendous amount of time and “know-how” to start up a blog. Do you feel a “but…” coming? It is ridiculously easy now to start up a free blog and write content that you have wanted to give the world! But…(ha you knew it was coming!), when you have had sites, other blogs etc…you already know much of what you want, how you want it delivered, etc. I’m not saying it’s hard but with each one more effort is required simply because your ability and knowledge has grown since the last site or blog you created.

Question: Where else can I find information like you have on your blog?

Answer: Hopefully nowhere besides gtguilloryonline! Yes I put a unique spin on things but I’m kinda partial to me (hey I’m cuddly too!). I can tell you about some of the sites I visit when I have the time….do a little research and find these sites: Tim Bonner (blogger), Traffic Generation Cafe (Anna H, highly recommended because she’s a coffee fiend like me), and of course the Big Bad Blogger John Chow. I do apologize to the other bloggers I follow for not mentioning you (really I DON’T have Alzheimer’s). Send me a rant in the form of a comment to one of the articles and I will make sure to mention I’m following your blog and you’re my best bud (really I will mention it if you want me to, lbnol).  Some of my best friends are bloggers!

An Excerpt From The Latest Newsletter – Find Your Why?

find your "why"

find your “why”

Do you set goals and reach them, are you finding success with your business? Do you know your “why”? Why are you in the business or seeking to start making money online? Is it to pay for that dream vacation? Maybe you just want to earn an extra income? Or you want a business of your own to replace the current job you have? What ever YOUR “why” is, you can accomplish those goals better by identifying and knowing what your own motivation is. When was the last time you set a goal and accomplished it without having a clear understanding of what it was and how to do it?

P.S. This is only part of the Newsletter, when the new site is opened up you can sign up and get benefits directly to your email! It’s getting closer now and the “Grand Opening” should be in April! Just need to spray that new car smell stuff all over before anyone walks in!

Thanks for your patience and thank you for visiting!

Dedicated To Your Success, Glenn

Make Money Blogging – Go Big Before It’s Too Late!

I’m my alter ego Nostro-Gen-us (who said I can’t have more than one?) with a dreaded prediction for your business future (key wicked witch cackle!). I’ve got a few tales for you about the state of the Internet/Online business in the not so far away future! Do you know what’s coming, even if you do ARE YOU PREPARED?!

 

Future Telling

future telling

future telling

You have heard this saying I’m sure, “Go Big or Go Home!” Or how about this one, “If you can’t run with the Big Dogs, get off the porch!” Well I’m telling you soon those statements will apply to every online business, my business, your business, heck almost every small ownership on the net will soon be threatened right out of their profits! I’m not trying to rattle your chain or send you to a BUY NOW button, no far from it (okay I am trying to rattle your chain but it’s for your own good, don’t ‘cha believe me?). It’s actually the natural progression of every industry. Only instead of going home it will be more like go away!

The Big Dogs Run – Always Getting Bigger

Big Dog Taking Over

Big Dog Taking Over

The Mom & Pop Stores are almost completely gone, Corporate Business has taken over nearly every market. When is the last time you listened to a locally owned radio station in any city? It happens in every market, once they know there’s money to be had the Big Dogs move in and move you out. Hear how those that started Marketing Online far back as 2004 talk about how many times Google laid the smack down on them and they had to start over? Well one thing they don’t mention (no not because they’re old, get offa my lawn!) is that EVERY thing was cheaper too. Advertising, email lists, services etc. could be had for pennies! So why is it more expensive and harder now? Because the user’s are willing to pay more! Take a look at the prices on popular search keywords, can you afford to pay 5-10-100 dollars for that kind of advertising? It’s become so expensive because now even Big Banks advertise online! Where does that leave me and you? Out in the cold? There is one thing that’s preventing the Big Dogs from putting us all out in the cold so far, something you already know…You can’t throw lots of money at the Internet and expect great returns! You can have the prettiest blog around and buy tons of paid for content but it won’t make you a dime! You can buy media for months straight and still not make a sale! So we still have time to make our fortunes before the Internet Time Bomb explodes on us!

Internet Business Time Bomb

Social Media Vamp

Social Media Vamp

How To Beat The Explosion

I don’t know his name (whatshisname) but I was watching a news program and one of the features was about how this star from “Vampire Diaries” had a Social Media company working for him. With the help of his Social Media people, he has turned his millions of followers into endorsements and conversions! Wish I could afford that Social Media guy, but hey I don’t have the million followers yet!

Learning From The Best

Learning From The Best

An alternative to hiring a Social Media or even Traffic Guru is to leverage OUR business with success. Nothing will get you success online bigger and better than having someone who already makes giant profits online helping you. Find a program, contact someone willing to teach you not what to do but “how to do it successfully”. Having a one on one Coach will make your business explode beyond where you are right now!

No it’s not easy at first because it might take you getting on the phone or even do what I’ve done and beg sometimes (hey it worked, stop judging me). You’re going to make mistakes in this Biz, I have and will make more (look away, I’m hideous!) so why not make fewer mistakes with experienced help? Be careful though as most online profiteers charge more than most can afford, some charge $50k for one on one training! Find a peer to help by first building your own network between people in the biz.

Get In Contact

Get In Contact

Get In Contact – Explode Your Brand:

  1) Reach out and communicate, you might be surprised to find that even many big time money makers will talk to you! The easier and not as expensive route is to build up your network, that goes hand in hand with building your audience and reaching out to other marketers. Start going to marketing events! Any events happening near your location? Another surprising fact is that there is a higher number of online marketers that go on to success after attending those marketing events and take action! Don’t you want to be the next?

2) You can also send your business into the next gear by getting calls from your prospective clients/customers. This can be extremely difficult at first but for those that want to be on YOUR team or buy something from YOU will be more receptive with someone they can talk to (insert YOUR smiling face here). You might be surprised how many contact requests I get asking if I’m a robot or automated response system. Add your contact information such as phone number (or Skype name), ONLY to potential client/customers from your funnel that are engaged in what you offer. Most important (here comes the hardest part) is you will have to be available for those calls. You can also hire a team once you have built your own experience with calls. Simply start writing scripts on what works and don’t be afraid to ask for the sale of your product, or what ever service you are providing.

Clock Is Ticking

Clock Is Ticking

The bottom line is all of us that are pursuing success online are on the clock and time is ticking down. Finding success is still a difficult journey even when you are already on the right path. For every successful online biz 98% of them had someone of experience and success that guided them in some way. I have a 6 & 7 figure Coach/Partner helping me with my own business right now. Yes I do understand not everyone can go the same route that’s why I also want you to know that the sooner you can go big making money blogging, making money online with your business the better.

Thanks for your patience and thank you for visiting!

Make Money Blogging – “Free” Failure

You want traffic for your blog, sites, video’s on YouTube, offers etc. If getting the right eyeballs on your blog is not working with S.E.O. methods this will get you on track. Let’s call it Phase I of your Traffic Campaign, and know that once it starts you’re going to be hooked!

Many of you may know that I have another blog and a YouTube channel with a few videos promoting passive income and tips to help raise the blog Army with tips that actually work towards success for your business. Some such as my primary video channel shows the current amount of views, did you ever wonder how I got 3,000+ views for that video in 1 month?(I just looked again, it’s almost 4k now)

“Free” Not Free

GTGuilloryonline - SEO Free

GTGuilloryonline – SEO Free

We have all heard this, “Rank on the 1st page in minutes!” That’s never happened for me(takes me half the day just to write an article!), no matter the method, plug-in or any other steps available out there. Now this is not a knock on S.E.O., but I’m here to tell you it’s not free! Here’s the qualifier, free methods are not free because they take extensive amounts of your time! How do you get that time back? How many of the Top Sites have the S.E.O. attributes you were taught, can you even see them? Well they do have tons of backlinks and mentions all over the net, so what is it? It’s THE MAN keeping us down! Sorry I get carried away, but in a sense it’s true. If you have ranked sites before it’s not all that difficult to repeat, do you remember I ranked #1 for the negative keyword “Markieters” for a little while? S.E.O. free methods do work but what the heck, for new marketers it takes forever (seems that way right!). Markieters took almost not time and I didn’t have ANY links for it, but on the other hand genguilloryonline.com/blog has plenty links and I worked on the S.E.O. What is the result you ask? Let me put it this way, genguilloryonline averages about 4-6 views a day. That’s all S.E.O., slow and steady (an S.E.O. expert would have done better but let’s be real)! On the other hand I used paid methods with S.E.O. on gtguilloryblog and average about 50 views an hour, yipee yah! Have I opened your eyes to different possibilities now?

Shake-In, Not Stirred

gtguilloryblog.com Shake In

gtguilloryblog.com Shake In

Well I thought it was a cool title for this paragraph (meh!). Here’s what I need you to do BEFORE you experience the traffic explosion, get leads! Set up your funnel, have Opt-Ins for everything! You want to shake the customer tree and have new leads land into you pot or as we call it “your funnel”. Everything you do online should start with excitement first, sign up second and funnel third! Send traffic to your Opt-In before anything else! Send ALL traffic to your OPT-IN, the funnel and your efforts to keep your leads responsive does all the rest. How few ads or offers do you see where the marketer doesn’t add you to their list? YOU need to do the same. Every promotion needs to add leads to your list and sales to your profits.

Fire-Bad; Traffic Good!

gtguilloryblog.com - Fire Bad, Traffic Good

gtguilloryblog.com – Fire Bad, Traffic Good

Would you believe me if I told you that not all traffic is good traffic? Which would you rather have, one hundred leads that generate 2 sales or 1 great lead that buys from you for a lifetime? Yes I knew you would say that! So why did I even ask?

Traffic is not created equal and tons of traffic does not guard against not getting ANY profits at all, use this equation: Traffic is not Equal to Sales. So that would mean what? You don’t need a large list to have success! If you can find one responsive customer, nurture that relationship then find another, keep repeating! You will know once you’ve shaken the customer tree and found the hiding spot, then keep going back until you’ve emptied the tree (we call it scaling)! You can do that with paid traffic but only in SMALL doses. Small as in the smallest allowable buy or CPA (cost per action, you pay when leads click, like, etc.). This is where you only pay for the traffic when an action is completed, such as clicking on your link to a lander that sends those leads to your list (whoops, another hint). The other reason for the smallest attempts is it allows you to fail until you find the best source that works. Using $5 for an ad that didn’t get you leads is much easier to handle until you get it right than the $50 that didn’t get you anything. “Think about why you’re reading this for a moment….for most it’s because this is an answer to a problem you have experienced!” I’m part of YOUR conversation before you even knew the conversation existed. That’s exactly where ads come in, YOU need to make the conversation your leads have been dealing with in your niche! Be their “Ah ha” moment!

How you can get lots of Traffic

The best method I have used is to combine S.E.O. methods (remember not free, costs you time) with paid methods, such as ads. One of the best paid sources I use that’s relatively cheap is Co-Promote. What it does is bring together bloggers and site owners to promote each other, free and paid promotions! Just keep in mind you are promoting from your site or blog in an ad form that needs to appeal to both bloggers and their readers. Here’s one of mine to use as an example:

gtguilloryblog - Co-Promote Example

gtguilloryblog – Co-Promote Example

I have also used Facebook Ads and Boost’s, the Boost is pretty easy as you can make a post on your Fan Page and give it a boost with Facebook traffic. Just write a post that links to your newsletter sign up, landing page, etc. The key is to send leads to your funnel, you will have to add in searched keywords to get in front of traffic for your niche. This can get tricky and practice, testing and building your experience will help. Facebook actually provides much boring data for your results, so use them and compare (secret sauce alert). Run multiple ads or boosts with slight variations, you will notice that most of my videos feature attractive females right? I do that because an attractive female will actually generate more leads with men & women than not having a person at all or having a attractive guy would. If you have never done a Facebook Boost or ad before you should really go on the cheap and add all the highly searched keywords and do not limit age, preferences etc. Here’s the reason why: Once you get the results in some areas, your ad will have better responses among certain ages and groups! This data will help you hone in on where YOUR leads are, their average age and preferences! Where else can you get that?!

Some of you will also have a little “shock & awe” that I also used the Google monster for traffic. Shock because Google is very unfriendly to IM (Internet Marketing), ads. How did I make it work? Very simple, I kept trying! I was actually dropped by Google for 2 months without reason but got re-instated after 4 or 5 contacts and keeping my cool (that’s important!). Another work around you can use is to always be honest in your offers (no shady allowed), and use multiple cards and accounts if you can. Did you know that some gift cards you can load up and use just like a credit card? Brilliant! The biggest key I would propose to you is to never confuse Traffic or Clicks with sales, the secret sauce to your blog becoming or maintaining your primary income is to maximize every lead with a minimum cost! Here are some helpful links for you to maximize your S.E.O. for the best ways to make money online right now:
