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…

The Magnetic Secret To Build A Successful Online Business

Successful Online Business

There’s this one small thing that you can do differently today, that will magnetically start to build a successful business online for you. This changed Dean Holland’s life 13 years ago, and it’s just happened again to him. Time to share it right here, with you…

“Something happened to me yesterday and it reminded me of something that I also did a couple of years ago, and it’s really refreshing.

So I want to actually share what this is, because I think this is going to help you get better results in your business.

For me it was one of those things that I did years ago, that finally allowed me to start seeing success. And actually…

Yesterday, I Did It Again, And It Feels Amazing!

And immediately, your audience relates with you, resonates with you, and supports you. And that’s what I want for you in your successful online business too.

So I want to share something that happened yesterday, and it really took me back. I remember when I was first starting to try and make money online, way, way back now, like 13 years ago.

There was a four-year period where…

I Just Completely Messed Up

I was buying and trying everything. Loaded up five credit cards, two bank loans, got over $60K’s worth of debt by the time I was in my mid-twenties.

But the biggest thing about that – one of the biggest lessons I learned – was during that whole time, because I was so afraid of the mess I got myself into, I didn’t tell anyone. So like, nobody knew.

It wasn’t until I got my first mentor, joined my first coaching program and got my first mentor… This guy said to me (he’s now a good friend, Alex…) he said to me, “Dean, it’s time that you were open, transparent and honest, and shared exactly what you’ve been going through with the rest of the world?”

This was a really scary thought at the time. Because I think, particularly in the ‘make money online’ space and the ‘home business’ space, everybody conveys their success. Everyone shares their wins. Nobody generally, especially 10 years ago…

No One Was Ever Talking About Failure

Nobody was sharing how bad things were for them. Nobody was sharing how much they were failing, right?

Sales Funnel Strategy That Dooms Most Internet Marketers To Failure

This is the sales funnel strategy, or the components of the sales funnel stages that every online marketing funnel must incorporate in one form or another in order to profitably compete for traffic in today’s marketplace, according to Dean Holland, CEO of Internet Profits Ltd.

Dean starts, “Most internet marketers are doomed to fail, okay? And I’m going to tell you why, right here!

So good morning, by the way. Welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean Holland here, and we are on this journey to Internet Profits HQ right now and…

Your Sales Funnel Strategy Is A Serious Topic!

This is one that’s probably not going to come as a good news for anybody, well not for the majority, especially if they don’t act.

I’ve been in the internet marketing industry full-time since 2009, but I started back in 2004. And so I’ve seen a lot. I’ve been a part of many evolutions in sales funnel strategy over the last 12 or so years in this industry.

We’re at a point where major shifts are taking place, major things are happening. And for those that don’t adapt, for those that don’t move with it…

You Might As Well Just Give Up Now, Because It’s Only Going To Get Worse!

So let me tell you what I’m talking about, so there’s some substance to this claim.

For a long, long time in this industry, even before I was around, it was pretty straightforward in some respects, for people to sell products and make a profit.

I wasn’t able to do it myself because, quite frankly, I just hadn’t figured things out early on in my online marketing career.

But I now know certain people, and hear their stories, and they talk about the good old days when you could just go to Clickbank, choose an affiliate offer, get an affiliate link, set up a Google Ad, and literally drive traffic direct, straight to the Clickbank offer or affiliate offer…

Spending Pennies On Traffic, And Making Dollars Back

…in exchange for pennies that you spend making a dollar back. Having it as simple as that!

Google ad, direct linking to an affiliate offer, no list building, nothing, just straight to that offer.

Now today, over the years, traffic has increased in price, competition for advertising has increased driving the price for a click, up.

So that game is all but over for a lot of industries – certainly for my industry! That’s just not going to fly anymore.

And so I want to share with you…
