Busy Like the Bee

That I am. Here's the status report.

Product Site 1:
1. Product 2 is experiencing set backs in the form of flaky interviewees. I sent out and email to a bunch of people on MySpace in order to replace the flake.

2. Product 3 is stalled simply because I have not found a worthy interviewee. I'm still on the look out.

3. Equipped with a brand new headset, I will be adding audio on my salesletter to try to boost conversions of both sales and newsletter sign-ups. I'm currently getting about 50 sign-ups per day but only a fraction of them confirm the double opt in. I will use the audio to instruct them on how to do it.

Potential Product Site 2:
1. The site is finished and I've socially bookmarked it in order to get the pages indexed. Once indexed and Google sees there is more content than just the sign-up page, I will start Adwords.

2. My coder is working on the template for the site as we speak.

3. My other coder finished the "video page" template and it has been outfitted with an autoresponder sign up form and a Camtasia video I produced. I may split test the video sign up vs. the static and see how that goes.

4. I have reviewed the articles my writer created and have given her my edits.

Real Estate Business:
1. My VA has provided a list of lawyers but I have not contacted them to get rates on the 3 contracts I need created.

2. The template being created for Potential Product Site 2 will also be used for the real estate business.

3. The content for the real estate business site is essentially complete.

4. The property management company still has not filled the vacancy in my duplex. That hurts the wallet.

That's it in a nutshell. Busy days and busy nights. If I weren't losing 40 hours/wk at a day job, I would be a beast. Oh well. My exfil date is set. I just have to get my income level to the magic $120/day=)

This is Fun Again

Yes, things are crazy and fun again. There was a long time where this business had stopped being fun for me. This has changed with this new initiative. Getting to the point where I can quit the job is huge. Yet, with the projects I'm working on I know I can do it.

How are things progressing?

Product Site 1:
My second product is underway. I have 3 more interviews to do before I can start editing the articles and prepping the final product package. One of those interviews is scheduled for Monday. Actually, I almost missed it because Yahoo through the interviewee's email into the spam folder. For the final 2, I think I may be able to pluck them from my existing autoresponder list=) We will see.

Product 3 is still in the very early stages. No new developments there, unfortunately.

Potential Product Site 2:
The site is up, the writer is writing, and I'm outsourcing development of the namesqueeze page. I'm going to use Camtasia on it to see how that affects sign ups. Developing a product here depends on how well the affiliate products sell.

These are the main points I'm working on for the 1st quarter of 2008 as far as the Internet biz goes.

Real Estate

I've outsourced development of a professional looking template for my real estate company. I have a name for it but I still need to go to the county and see if it is available or not. I will be using IM biz funds to pay for creating a business structure. I also had my VA send me a list of real estate attorneys here in town. I will be using them to develop 3 contracts for me to use. Finally, I need to start developing the marketing plan for getting the word out and having the deals come to me.

I have implemented video into my newsletter for Product Site 1. They loved it and it is much easier to create compared to writing articles each time. It may also prove to be more effective for selling my product. We will see.

Product Site 2 is nearly complete. I just need to do the namesqueeze page and I can start the Adwords campaign.

The market for Product Site 3 may be at hand. Months ago I set up some pages in the market, however, I've made 2 sales from it in the past week. The construction of this site will wait until the products for Site 1 are finished. There are currently 2 products under development.

The market for Site 4 (not a product site) has been found and has great potential.

Real Estate

I'm learning all that I can about doing the real estate deals I learned about in the Rich Dad seminar. I need to come up with a name for the company and develop a business entity for it. Once that is taken care of, I can build a website and get business cards.

I have to say that seminar was great. Going into the seminar making $10k/mon seemed like a lot of money. Post-seminar, it seems completely doable. The problem is that a job will hold you back from making that much.

Here's to $10k/month!

Product #2 Underway

Tonight I have a short call with my first interviewee for the audio course I am creating. I'm a bit nervous, hopefully it will go well. I also received another go ahead from an interviewee. That makes 3 total who have said yes, but one of them looks like they may be a no show. I'm looking for 4-5 interviewees before I consider that portion for be finished.

I'm hoping to get this and one other audio product launched by mid-Feb. They are in the same niche but they will diversify my product base which should boost earnings.

By the way, I'm using FreeConference for to record the interviews. They offer the recording in Mp3 so I'm happy about that. Speaking of which, I need an mp3 editor. Didn't even think about that! Rats!

Happy New Year!

My one resolution for 2008 - QUIT THE JOB!

That's it. That is my one goal for the year and it can be achieved once I hit the $120/day mark with the Internet business. As far as my business goes, nothing is more important.

How will I do it?

Product Site 1:
Solidify the power and conversion rate of Product 1.
Create 2 more products.
Create a spin-off membership site.

Product Site 2:
Find a new market.
Test and create Product 2.

Product Site 3:
Find a new market.
Test and create Product 3.

Real Estate:
Using new technique I learned at a Rich Dad Real Estate seminar this weekend, I will start doing deals for the purpose of generating large sums of cash. From what I learned, a single transaction could generate more money than I earn at my job in a month.

This is going to be a busy year and everything is tipped toward the beginning of the year. The sooner I can quit, the sooner I can start making REAL money.
