If I could go back in time I would tell myself to focus on growing my email list more and takeing better care of them.

Building An Email List

Hindsight is always 20/20, but one of the best ways I could have taken better care of them was to be better at segmenting my list.

In this episode I talk through a specific strategy of utilizing hidden fields to help gather more information to be able to provide better value and to help in assisting with future sales.

The two platforms that I discuss heavily are Click Funnels and LeadPages.

This was a short and sweet message.

But I wanted to say thank you to all of  the listeners as this was the first week where I published 5 podcast episodes.

A Message Of Thanks

It has been difficult, but also a ton of fun too.

But most of all I wanted to encourage you to work hard, but to also play hard.

I hope you take time yourself to do the same with your family and friends too.

Cheers, until next week.

087 – Should You Be On All Of The Social Media Channels?

4 Steps To Help You Decide Where To Invest Your Time & Effort

In this episode, I answer the question of “should I be on all of the social media channels?”

This is a great business question, as many people struggle with the FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out).

Should I be On All Of the Social Media Profiles #087

A great example of this is when the relaunch of Myspace happened.

I personally updated my profile, but in all reality, that was not what I should have been focused on at the time.

My target audience was not on MySpace and it ended up being more of a distraction to me similar to what Facebook can be like today. I ended up losing momentum in a critical time of my life.

Ultimately, the launch of MySpace was kind of a flop in the end anyways.

084 – Staying Positive and Quitting Trying

It's Time To Start Doing

This is a very exciting episode for me as I am now halfway in my podcast recording to episode 168. This has been an amazing journey, but I have learned some lessons in the past 4 years that I need to work on.

Stay Positive Quit Trying

Since this is a rather monumental episode (at least for me) I discuss how I have come to understand how I have struggled with the “trying” bug for the last 9 years of my life.

Maybe you know what I’m talking about.

You state that you will “try” to make that deadline or appointment, but in reality you have given yourself a way out.

Stating that you “will try” to do something allows you to internally provide yourself with an exit strategy.

You will often find yourself rationalizing skipping something because you said you would “try”. After all you “did try”.

However, at the end of the day it really is just a way for you to not commit to something.
