Ways To Make Money Online – The Four Core Components

Ways To Make Money Online

Making money online doesn’t have to be as hard as what a lot of people make it.

There is an easier way for somebody brand-new, to start making commissions and start earning money on the internet. And that’s what I’m going to share with you today.

Good morning welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here of course. Just heading direct to Internet Profits HQ to finish the week strong – it is Friday of course.

Let Me Just Take You Back To 2004

I discovered, whilst working a seemingly poor paying bar job in a pub here in England, literally working six days a week, very unsociable hours on very, very little pay.

That lead me to go in search for; how could I make more money…

Ways To Make Money Online

And obviously this whole journey of discovery into making money online, and online marketing began.

And geez, talk about getting sucked down the rabbit hole like Alice in Wonderland! I went down that that rabbit hole and a whole new world opened up to me. And that world was exciting…

That World Gave Me A Buzz

I saw such potential… I felt hope… I saw the prospect, the opportunity, of a financial freedom… of becoming more than what I was… of living more than what I was living.

Having more of everything, like more money, more freedom, more time.

And It Didn’t Happen

I lost over and over again. Until 2008 landed and I was literally on the brink of having to give it up… Not through choice, but through lack of options. I had no other resources left, so it seemed.

Sixty plus thousand dollars in debt, five credit cards, all but one maxed out (had about a thousand dollars left on it). I was living back at my mom’s house. I was in my mid-20s.

I had two bank loans that I’d taken out over the course of those years. One to clear the credit cards (then I used them all again!) And then one just to give me some extra money, and then I went and spent it all again.

And So I Was Living This Lie…

Because nobody in my life knew I had these debts, because I was afraid, I was so ashamed, I was scared. And I didn’t know really what to do.

Then October turned around and I ended up going to an internet marketing seminar for the first ever time. Met a few people. Saw some people that were living like I wanted to live.

Met Some Real Internet Marketers – Successful People

And with one of them, I used my last bit of money on the credit card to actually join his coaching program. Got him as a mentor, and started attending these weekly live calls, learning, studying, applying everything he taught me.

And over the weeks and the months ahead, I started to make money and I started to turn things around.

Nine Months Later I Quit My Job

…which was at a construction company by this point. And the following year made over half a million dollars in sales from one website.

But it was a long, long journey. Was it worth it? You bet it was!!

Now my life is unrecognizable to them. But still, this industry is plagued by the large majority of people that cannot make it work, that cannot make money, that cannot succeed.

And if I look back as to why I couldn’t succeed… well there were many reasons. But I’m gonna just pinpoint one key reason right now…

I Was Trying So Many Different Ways To Make Money Online

I’m not talking about things that worked well together… I mean completely different business approaches – completely different business models!

And now I can pinpoint some key steps, so that…

If You Focus On These Steps, You Will Make Money

And so here’s what it is…

This Split Test Kicked Ass And Exploded Conversions

Kick Ass Split Test That Exploded Conversions

So I just listened to a message on Voxer from a friend of mine in Russell Brunson’s Inner Circle, and it completely sparked off a memory of a…

Killer Kick-Ass Split Test

…that we ran in the past that exploded conversions – that’s what I want to share with you.

Good morning welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here of course, on the way to Internet Profits HQ.

It has now turned frosty here in the UK. It is that time of year. It is getting real cold. Except I only ever wear these black t-shirts!

I need to start kitting out for winter. So you might see me soon in maybe like a sweatshirt or something, who knows? Might just go crazy on you guys.

So, split testing. Probably…

One Of The Most Under-Utilised Things For Most Marketers

Not that they’ll tell you that. But probably true.

Far too many people don’t split test. Or if they do, they probably do it one time and then that’s it. But it’s one of the most valuable things you can actually do, right?

If you are sending traffic to a page and you are not split testing to optimise it continually for maximum conversions, you’re crazy!

So, as I said in the intro, I just had a Vox this morning from somebody, and they were actually in the USA, so obviously American accent. And they basically said to me like,

“Oh My Gosh, Your Accent Is Insane…”

“Our members would go nuts for your accent.” Something like that.

But anyway, basically talking about accents. And I’m like, “Well, I don’t have an accent. YOU have an accent.”

And it just reminded me, and I’m like, “Oh, that split test we did, and how much it beat it.”

So obviously I’m from the UK, alright? I am English. This is my accent – I have an English or British accent. But there was a split test that we did and I thought…

I Wonder If My Accent Is Lowering Conversions?

This was something, actually for a long time, I never even thought about. Because this was just me. I’m doing my own videos. I’m doing my own presentations, own sales videos. Why would I do anything else?

The Unpleasant Truth About The Internet Marketing Business World

Internet Marketing Business

Some of you are not going to be ready to hear this message. But it’s the truth about the internet marketing business, and it’s time for me to share it.

Hey guys, what’s going on? It’s Dean here of course, coming to you live from Cyprus here just on the beach. Hardly anyone around. It’s like 6:00 in the morning, and it’s amazing.

Internet ProfitsI’ve been sitting here for for a little while now, just reflecting about everything. Reflecting about life, reflecting about the internet marketing business, and about how much things have changed.

There was a time in my life – and it wasn’t that long ago – where I couldn’t afford to be here. I couldn’t afford to fly, or to go on vacations. I couldn’t afford anything really, other than to just exist.

And over the years… gosh, over the last nine years, all of that’s changed. But it hasn’t been easy.

And I want to talk about…

The Real Truth About The Internet Marketing Business

Because no one really does. No one really talks about the reality behind this internet marketing business.

Because the truth is; online marketing and the internet, and using it for the ability to grow business, can change your life dramatically, like it has mine.

For a young guy that left left school at 16, with no real qualifications, no real direction in life, not knowing what he wanted to do… to now sitting here on this beach. It’s just incredible!

So what is the truth then? Well the reality is that now, and for the rest of my life in my business… it’s time to take a huge stand against…

Anyone That Pushes Or Touts Get-Rich-Quick Garbage

There are different sectors and different people within the internet marketing space. And you need to understand that there really is no such thing as get-rich-quick here.

Dean Holland - The Drive E97

When you know what you’re doing. And when you have a proven process, and you have all the right things in place… can you make a lot of money relatively quickly? Yes, absolutely!

But there’s like a timeline of things that have to take place. You have to learn… you have to understand enough… you have to know what’s going on…

You Have To Understand Things Like…

Website Traffic: You Should Never Have A Web Traffic Problem

Website Traffic

So we’re gonna have a sit down for a few minutes, and we’re gonna talk about something incredibly important.

I see a lot of people, both Certified Partners, and clients, and customers… a lot of people are struggling to drive traffic right now. The thing is…

Nobody Should Ever, EVER Have A Website Traffic Problem!

Because there is so much traffic available… (Click here for my FREE traffic training video…) Let me say that again, “You should never have a web traffic problem!”

Now the reason is… look all the platforms where there are infinite, practically infinite amounts of website traffic available:

Facebook…
Google…
GDN…
YouTube…
Instagram…
Twitter…
Native ads…
Email buys, banner ads, media buys, and the list could go on and on and on.

The problem isn’t getting website traffic. The problem is converting the traffic. And this is what I want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the conversions of a sales page, the conversions of an offer… I want to talk about…

Where The REAL Money Is Found In Your Business

And that is in the follow up with your audiences, eg. the follow up with your email list. This is one that we could definitely focus in on here.

You see we’ve got, for example, Certified Partners and clients here at Internet Profits, where they are driving web traffic, they’re building their email list, and they’re not following up consistently and communicating effectively with that audience in order to convert them.

I stress again, like I just said, you will not have a website traffic problem. You will most likely always have a conversion problem. And the main point where you can affect that, is in the follow up with your audiences.

So, A Few Pieces Of Advice…

One: Are you communicating with your list every single day? Not once or twice a week, not a few times a week, every single day! Because if you’re not, then…

Website Conversion Optimization: Warning! This Will NOT Work For You

Website Conversion Optimization

Here’s how NOT to approach website conversion optimization on your business website or blog, especially when trying to sell anything directly from a web page… Followed by the best advice to optimize your website for conversions:

“I just read something really dangerous online. I’ve got to talk about it in today’s Drive.

Website Conversion Optimization – A Warning!

Good morning, welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here, of course. On the way to Internet Profits HQ here in the UK.

As I just said in the introduction, I read something on social media this morning.

Well, I read a few things – and alarm bells started ringing, and I thought I have GOT to speak about this to you today.

I’ve got to share this, because…

This Could Be Causing So Much Harm To So Many People

…and it’s scary! Let me explain…

So I saw in one of the groups that I belong to this morning, somebody asking a question something along the lines of, “What will work best for website conversion optimization? This, or this?”

Then you had all these people chiming in saying, “Oh, that way would work best. There’s no way the other way is correct, there’s no way that would work.”

And then you had other people saying, “No I’m not sure. I think the other way would work best for website conversion optimization.”

It was very apparent to me, as a bystander, looking in from the outside, that a lot of the opinions being given were from people that were just guessing what they think would work best.

Then something else that I saw, which was based on someone else’s testing (which is great right?) Someone else had done some testing on a certain thing for website conversion optimization.

It was actually on something that they’d added to their website that they thought would increase website conversions. And they were saying…

“I Thought This Would Increase Conversions, But It Didn’t”

So you’ve then got everyone else there commenting, saying, “Oh thanks so much for sharing this, you saved me wasting my time, so I won’t do this.”

And I thought, hang on a minute… This is dangerous! This is scary!

Right, I’ve got one more example, and then I’m going to tell you why this is so scary to me, and dangerous to your business…

Millionaire Business Tips: How I Generated Over $9 Million In Online Sales By Age 33

Millionaire-Business-Tips-Dean-Holland

A series of not-to-be-missed millionaire business tips shared by Dean Holland, specifically aimed at helping new business startups and online marketers…

“In today’s Drive I’m going to talk about how I’ve grown my business to generate over nine million dollars in online sales, by the time I’m 33.

I don’t really have anything specifically planned, but hopefully these will be some great tips and bits of advice for anybody starting and growing a business.

Millionaire Business Tips For Starting And Growing A Business

I started back in 2004, and for the first four years I struggled ridiculously. It ended up being like some of the darkest and scariest times in my life, because by 2008 I was in over sixty thousand dollars of debt.

And I suppose this is where my first bit of advice will come from. When you’ve figured out, or when you think you’ve got an idea of what it is you want to do – as in what direction you want to take your business.

Which Direction To Take In Your Business?

Do you want to be an affiliate marketer? Or do you have expertise and knowledge that you feel can help others, and give value to others? In which case, do you want to learn how to create your own product or course, then how to sell that?

Whichever direction it is you want to go, my first bit of advice would be, don’t try and figure it all out on your own.

There’s quite a steep learning curve, in terms of learning what to do and how to do it, to start and grow business properly. There’s a lot to learn.

The Biggest Shame In My Online Business Career

One of the biggest shames is, when I look back, I think, “Yes, I might have lost tens of thousands of dollars (which in itself is not great) but I managed to make that back many, many times over.”

So I’m not worried by that. But one thing I do look back on and think is, “What a shame that I didn’t get that advice that I’m sharing now, much earlier. What a shame I thought that figuring everything out on my own was a good idea!”

Because I can’t get the four years back that I lost. And that’s just the truth, right? They’ve come, they’ve gone!

Thankfully I did get a mentor in 2008, and that was the turning point. So that would be my first thing…

How To Get More Followers And Buyers From Any Social Media Platform

Would you like to know how to get more followers on social media platforms and turn them into buying customers? Here are some great free tips from my business mentor, Dean Holland:

This weekend I was thinking about something. It followed on from something I was saying to some customers and students of ours on one of our programs last week.

And that is to think about;

“Are You Making It Easy & Simple For People To Find And Follow You?”

So let me explain what I mean.

If I think back to when I first got started online, when I first discovered that people were making money on the internet. It was actually in 2004.

But I didn’t make any money or really experienced any progress or anything really until the end of 2008.

So you may wonder what was happening during that time? Well, I was buying lots and lots of products, y’know.

I’d buy ebooks, video courses, software plugins, loads and loads of different stuff.

But when I think back on it…

I Didn’t Actually Have Anything Substantial Or Tangible Online

There was no presence. There was nothing really.

  • I didn’t have a blog, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have a YouTube channel, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have a Facebook page, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have any active social media presence.

So when you think about the way in which the Internet and the world as a whole has evolved into the current day. It’s in a position where it is a very social environment.

You only have to look over the last decade – the massive advances and the uprising of social media platforms.

They Have Now Taken Over The Internet

Billions and billions of people across the world are using social media platforms actively.

Even if you think about television… Reality TV, ‘social television’, has taken the world by storm.

You have talent shows, you have things like Big Brother where they take members of the public and put them in a house and surround them with cameras for weeks on end.

And people people sit there fascinated just watching people live in a house!

It’s The Same For Your Business

People like to follow people.

Think about your own habits online. Do you follow other people?…
