I previously shared a tip on optimizing your Google My Business listing here. Make sure you follow the steps on that article and proceed with the following:
So, first off what is influence? Influence is better than just selling something or selling someone. Influence is more powerful because when you have influence you don't have to try. Once you build up the influence you can just pull the trigger and make a call to action. You don't have to try to sell.
In fact, one of the laws of influence is to not try hard and to not sell because that's the very opposite. That's the opposite of what you're trying to do. So, what's the first law of influence?
The first law of influence is always take the person from pain to glory. And if you can find a pain in someone whether it's joining your gym, or it's having a coach, hiring a mentor like me, or buying a car like Lex. She sells luxury vehicles and she matches people up with their perfect luxury vehicle. Everyone has some type of pain.
So as an influencer, first off before you even get started, identify who it is you're going to be selling to? What it is? What might be their pain? What...
With the number of different ways you can generate traffic to your website nowadays, it’s easy to get so caught up focusing on traffic generation methods that businesses often forget to take a close look at the actual traffic sources.

What do you do when your back is against the wall, you'd lose in life? Those of you who don't know me, I'm used to fighting in the UFC, martial arts, MMA, and wrestling. Those types of things there are lots of losses when you go one-on-one against someone. You don't win every time, no way.
So, I picked up some skills that I use now as an entrepreneur. I want to talk about what you need do when you have a plan, a game plan, a goal in mind but it's not going to happen for you.
Like for me, now I'm 34 years old I'm never going to be UFC champion. I was the top in my division, I was ranked as high as number two and number three. I was going to fight for a title shot, and then I had an injury, an eye injury. I had eye surgery several times and long story short that stopped my career.
I'm going to talk to you today about what happens whenever you have these big goals. People go into college, they go to into a career field and then things just don't work...
Are you selling physical products online and on Instagram?
You may have seen this Instagram feature before but very soon, consumers (yes, including your customers) can purchase products and instantly check out from your feeds!
Just this month, Instagram introduced ‘Checkout on Instagram’. While shoppable feeds have been a thing since last year, businesses then mostly used third-party apps... BUT this time, Instagram built its own easy-shop feature allowing customers to buy products without leaving the Instagram app!
From Instagram Press:
“When you tap to view a product from a brand’s shopping post, you’ll see a “Checkout on Instagram” button on the product page. Tap it to select from various options such as size or color, then you’ll proceed to payment without leaving Instagram. You’ll only need to enter your name, email, billing information and shipping address the first time...
I did $32,000 in sales before lunch today. I'll repeat that, $32,000 in sales not in just one day but before lunchtime today. And it's all because of a couple of things and that's what I'm going to tell you about in this live video right now.
So, don't go anywhere because I promise you, a couple of years ago I was not in this situation. A couple of years ago I had a million dollar business, that was gyms. I was at the fitness business and the martial arts, and even the beginning of last year I had 4 gym location.
A couple of years ago I was doing a million dollars in that but I was not happy. I had tons of anxiety because I was trying to do multiple things. I was trying to do a coaching business. I tried to launch an agency. I was trying to open more locations and I was also going through a divorce.
And all these things together, it made me the most unhappy person. I couldn't grow my business, I just couldn't get past that million dollar mark. I was like, I'm going to take this...
Last week, we talked about the web traffic potential from Instagram, particularly from Instagram stories.
What makes Instagram different is the fact that it is a visual platform.It’s a sea of beautifully curated images and to attract the right audience, you have to make sure your contents are visually attractive, engaging and compelling at the same time.
