I’ve Wasted 4+ Years Of My Life!

Wasted Life Blog Post PIC NEW2

It was about 4 years ago now when I first decided to quit my job and work full time on my online business.

At that time I had invested $1,700 into a high ticket business opportunity which paid me $1,000 per sale, and after a few months I got my very first $1,000 commission!

At that very moment I decided that I was going to quit my courier driving job and do this “internet thing”, so I handed in my 2 week resignation.

However I stayed for 3 weeks because it was a busy time of year and I didn’t want to leave my boss in the deep end, even though he was chuckling at my dream of online success.

So, then my journey of building an online business began!

My OLD PIC

“Oh, so young!”LOL…

I was excited and nervous at the same time…

I was struggling with the “What if I fail” voice in the back of my head… he was persistent!

And truth be told, it was a STRUGGLE to get started.

I had NO idea how to get people to checkout my business opportunity and I definitely didn’t want to harass friends and family.

You know the deal, “Hey bro, would you like to join a business and struggle like me?”.. LOL

That was out of the question!

So I made a decision that I was going to learn how to use the internet to get people checking out my business.

This is kinda easier said then done when you have NO idea what you’re doing!

And so it began, the journey of purchasing products to LEARN how to generate leads…

To cut a long story short I managed to learn how to position myself in front of people who were searching online for information on my specific business!

These people would actually contact ME and ask more about my business opportunity!

And not long after I had discovered this strategy I had my first $2,000 WEEK online!

Words can’t describe the feeling!

It was validation that I was moving in the right direction and that I wasn’t in fact crazy… :-)

The only issue was the commissions weren’t consistent enough so the struggle for online success continued…

At this time I had heard about people selling information products online, and needless to say I was intrigued.

The idea of packaging up information and selling it online was mind blowing to me.

The obvious benefits would be that you’d only have to create the information product ONCE and then you could continue to get paid over and over again…

AND… there would be no waiting to get paid once someone makes a decision to buy!

So I set out to create my first information product.

I chose a niche and picked a topic to teach.

At the time the most valuable thing I knew how to do was to get interested people to contact me about my high ticket business opportunity.

So I decided to teach that.

Niche: Network Marketers, Etc.

Topic: How to generate HIGH QUALITY leads.

I mapped out what I was going to teach step by step.

I wanted to create a How To product that would take the person by the hand and walk them step by step to the end result, which was having people contact them about their specific business opportunity.

I called the product “My Company Lead Magnet”.

The product name seemed fitting.. :-)

I created both an eBook and a video course.

MCLM Bread and Butter

Then I set out to create my very first sales funnel to actually sell my products FOR me.

I knew all the pieces of the puzzle because I had  been through MANY sales funnels myself.

So I grabbed a note pad and pen and then mapped out my first sales funnel, and then I played with the numbers to see the income potential of this product idea.

The numbers are always exciting! :-)

Then it came time to create the sales funnel, keep in mind I really had no EXACT clue of what I was doing but I was going to do it anyway.

And with in a week or so I had my very first sales funnel created.

Capture page.
Sales page to sell the eBook for $37.
Up sell page to sell the video course for $67. (Normally $97)
Thank you page for the customer to access the products.

It was finally completed, a product of my OWN!

Needless to say I was pretty excited…

Now it was time for the last piece of the puzzle which was getting people (traffic) to come to my capture page so they could go through my sales funnel.

At that time my main traffic sources were my blog at www.BilleeBrady.com, and keyword targeted YouTube videos.

So I slapped up an optin box on my sidebar of my blog and started creating YouTube videos targeting network marketers.

And before too long “BAM” I had my first $37 payment!

And then I had my first $37 payment AND a $67 payment!

And then I had my first $97 payment!

(The $97 payments were coming from the people who didn’t take the up sell).

It got to the point where I was making about $300 – $500+ per week from nothing but free traffic!

I also got very few refunds which was cool to…

But for some strange reason I didn’t decide that this product would be my main income stream.

I was very young in the industry and I guess I just didn’t believe enough in myself, and I guess I was basically blinded by the thought that in order to make money online I had to be promoting some business opportunity.

Which was crazy because I was making a nice little consistent income selling my OWN information products.

The subconscious can either be your best friend or your enemy, and at the time I didn’t even know what a subconscious was… so my programming was completely messed up.

“Thankfully I’ve been working on the mindset for years now”

So it began, years passed by where I would put ALL of my faith in OTHER people to provide me with a business to promote…

When all along I should have been FOCUSED on creating info products, not relying on something other than myself to create my success.

And to cut an already long story short (LOL) about a year ago I created an information product combined with an affiliate program which did multiple 6 figures in the first year, and resulted in not only me having my biggest months online but I’ve helped a lot of other people make their first income online.

Some members have CRUSHED it!

If you’re still looking for a place to get started online and you haven’t taken the time to checkout IBK, I highly recommend you take the time to watch this video: Click Here to Watch The Video.

So over the past few months I’ve been brainstorming how I can help empower people even more and I decided to teach people how to create their OWN information products and sell them online…

Because honestly, it’s cool to make money selling someone else’s products but when you actually create something of your OWN and then start making sales it’s MIND BLOWING!

It seems as though you are literally making money out of thin air!

I remember the first time when I started selling my first info product all those years ago, I remember telling my brother and he just couldn’t wrap his head around the concept! haha …

We would be hanging out and my phone would go off and I’d show my brother, I had just made another $37 and $67 sale… selling my OWN information product!

This is what I want to teach other people how to do because it’s one of the most liberating feelings in the world…

Not only are you making money “out of thin air”, but you’re also HELPING people with your products.

In my opinion it’s one of the coolest business models in the world.

And it all really boils down to the 4 part formula that I’ve shared with you in this blog post.

If you’ve actually read this entire blog post, you’re awesome!

I admire your dedication to your own success.

P.S. No, I don’t really think that I’ve wasted about 4 years of my life, every step of the way has been a learning experience… and builds character.

What was the alternative? Get a job? Bugger that!
