By doing something I did not know how to do….
Before You think it sounds dodgy, let me explain.
Their name was Charity. Really nice person from my first impression. Hit me up on Facebook and said they were on my list and if I could help them. And my reply got me my first $100 online.
The cry for help was in relation to a service I had offered. Basically, I was offering to create anyone who wanted it a professional looking capture page and connect it to an auto-responder of their choice. This was before Lead Pages, Clickfunnels (best investment I have made in a long while) and so on and to be honest, I was fairly green at that time myself. But I was keen and an action taker.
I had also bought a product called 10-minute pages. I no longer have it nor endorse it. That allowed me to use a whole bunch of templates. I would have no idea how to create one from scratch. Still cannot do that. I’m no coder.
Anyway, Charity wanted me to create a page and connect it to Aweber so a Bizz Opp could be promoted. I used one of the templates, edited it and connected it to Aweber. charged $97 (okay, not $100 but near enough).
They were happy as I was super quick, helpful and delivered over what THEY had expected. And I did something that they could not do at that time themself. Everyone was a winner.
It took me 10 mins max. Maybe less. Easy money. Now some of you maybe think I overcharged, should have done it for free..etc. But I disagree.
This was providing a service. And at that time, I’d not heard of Fiverr and I presume neither had they.
I just took action.
If you are struggling, think, what can YOU do? What can YOU create that others cannot yet need? Then get the word out and charge for it. if you do not so it, someone else will.
Certain softwares or programs can aid the process of course. At that time, I made the most of 10-minute funnels. Soon, I’ll be getting Viddyoze 2.0 and offering services via my VA to people who did not grab it but need help making their videos look snazzy.
Here are some examples of intros I made up using Viddyoze 2.0:
It really is just a case of getting yourself out there and getting some money coming in. When you are new, or if you are struggling, never be afraid to big up yourself.
Now, of course you absolutely must over-deliver and do it in a timely manner. That goes without saying.
Even if you only got ONE $100 in a whole month, that would pay your phone bill or cover some expenses as you grow.
Do it! And get your first $100 online (if you haven’t already).
