Rank #1: #1 Digital Marketing Strategy To Make Money Online In 2020 & Beyond

Podcast cover
Read more

Not making enough money online? It's because you've got the WRONG digital marketing strategy! This premium training teaches the exact strategy I share with my inner circle group coaching students...

Sony people online are asking the wrong questions… Questions like:

How can I make fast money online?

How can I make $1000 fast?

The truth is if you really want to learn how to make money for beginners and advanced marketers alike you must realize there's a three phase process.

The fake gurus are trying to sell you scams that try to teach you to make money, with online surveys, typing names online, drop shipping, affiliate marketing, etc.

these scams are so prevalent that I made an entire video to help you learn how to avoid them www.youtube.com/watch?v=aHY3teLOShY

Now, affiliate marketing is absolutely a Legitimate way to earn income online and I cover in extreme detail here: www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Faffiliate-marketing-for-beginners%2F&redir_token=mNaz1NACkTuMVi2XgkIebviJ2YF8MTU3MjQyMDkxMkAxNTcyMzM0NTEy&event=video_description&v=cd-ssPAHROM

but the truth is whether you choose drop shipping, affiliate marketing, crating online courses or memberships… Etc. the only business strategy you use is more important than the monetization

This is where many of the fake gurus leave you hanging because they need to make the path to earning income with an online business sound easy.

The truth is it takes focused strategic effort over sustained periods of time.

The strategy and process is proven and it's actually quite simple which is exactly what we cover in this video here today.

this video originally aired as a private member training for my inner circle group coaching program at www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.contentandconversion.com&redir_token=mNaz1NACkTuMVi2XgkIebviJ2YF8MTU3MjQyMDkxMkAxNTcyMzM0NTEy&event=video_description&v=cd-ssPAHROM

the goal of this video is to break down the entire strategy of building a successful online business regardless of the product you decide to promote.

The best part is this strategy works whether you're a complete beginner or even if you have a local bricks and mortar business that you're looking to grow online.

Treating your online business like a real small business is the key and understanding that you need to have a consistent flow of new and interested products entering your world along with a process that will help these individuals grow to know like and trust you is key.

Everyone focuses on trying to sell things… What product should I promote? Is one of the most common questions I receive.

This video will reframe the challenge of growing your Internet based business in a way that allows you to realize your goal is to be of service to your audience…

A better question to ask is: who am I best able to serve?

What are the biggest problems my audience is facing and how can I help them solve them?

When you answer these two questions correctly and build enough content that meets your audience members where they are and helps them get to where they want to be… You have the foundation for a thriving and successful business!

If you still feel like you need help getting on the right track, be sure to check out my free course here: www.youtube.com/redirect?q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Ffree-course&redir_token=mNaz1NACkTuMVi2XgkIebviJ2YF8MTU3MjQyMDkxMkAxNTcyMzM0NTEy&event=video_description&v=cd-ssPAHROM

Rank #2: SEO & Search Engine Marketing

Podcast cover
Read more

Search engine optimization has more misleading advice and shady "service providers" than anything I've seen online. This video is going to give you a solid grasp of the basics of SEO in just one video. Search engine marketing and optimizing for search engines has helped my wife and I grow our business from the ground up with as little as $100 to start. This small investment in a web hosting combined with a large investment of time and energy creating and publishing content and optimizing that content has led us to reach nearly 10 million people with 20 million page views in just seven years. If you stay focused on the core concepts and the basics of SEO… Ignore the hype, the sales messages for the shiny "shortcuts" and shady "blog network" vendors you can build a solid website that drives hundreds of thousands of visits per month from the search engines, too. It is always important to begin by thinking about the platform your publishing to, in this case it's Google, and what their goals are. Understanding that the search engines goal is to deliver 1) highly relevant and engaging results for its users and 2) relevant advertisements so it can earn revenue you quickly can realize that becoming a partner of Google who publishes excellent quality and highly engaging content focused on what people are searching for is key.  You can help Google achieve their goals and in return Google will rank you high and drive traffic your way. The only "shortcut" there is to achieve success with search engine optimization and search engine marketing quickly, is to publish higher-quality content more often than your competitors. And for this I recommend you start with a 90 day challenge where you publish one excellent blog post every day for 90 days. Aside from simply publishing the content your content needs to be focused on a specific keyword which represents a core topic in the mind of your users.  Keyword research is how you get into the mind of your target visitor and understand what they're looking for what their needs are and where they are in the buying cycle so you can create and craft great content that answers their biggest questions while proving to Google that you are a quality publisher worthy of their users attention. Here is my video where I show my exact process for doing keyword research... It is an hour-long consulting session I did for a close friend that I recorded to show you my exact process for professional keyword research: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_FfdjNOgpQ The video goes deeper into how to structure your content marketing within your content management system in order to achieve maximum results. We look at what parts of page design and layout are important for you to focus on so you can trigger the most ranking factors in Google's algorithm for SEO and outrank your competitors. From the title and descriptions to the headline, heading tags and the concept of turning your post into a multimedia destination are all covered at length. These are the techy nuts and bolts of SEO and there's really only a handful of them you need to understand in order to optimize your content marketing efforts. There's definitely a lot of overlap from what is covered in this video and what was covered in the YouTube SEO video which you can watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ffkxuvFAE2k To be perfectly honest, if you really want to dominate at organic search engine optimization your best bet is to also dominate at YouTube SEO creating a content marketing strategy that leverages both video marketing and organic search engine marketing together. This is why I have continued to mention content marketing because search engine optimization should really just be one pillar in an overall content marketing strategy… And I will cover content marketing in depth later in another video. Some people (who are often trying to sell you SEO courses) claim that the real "trick" to search engine optimization is all about outreach and getting other people to link to you. I am not from this school of thought and in the process of generating tens of millions of page views through organic search engine optimization, I've never really implemented this method. I do not believe you are required to do outreach in order to be successful with SEO. The truth is you need to publish comprehensive, long-form, multimedia, engaging content that raises the bar on every topic and keywords you target. Simply do that more than your competitors and you will win. Other videos you will find helpful are the keyword research video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhfXIs2M1Bc How to get organic traffic from Google: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HbBxU_ruVUY And if you want to learn how a solid Google SEO and organic search engine optimization strategy can boost the effectiveness of your facebook advertising campaigns, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sgJ6g3hjD_4

Rank #6: The 4% Rule - Applying The 80/20 Rule To The 80/20 Rule.

Podcast cover
Read more

If you are familiar with the 80/20 rule, or the Pareto principle, and you don't know what your 4% is, you are missing the point. Everyone knows what the 80/20 rule is, but very few people understand how to maiximize this ratio to create the most positive output and benefit in their lives or businesses because the Pareto principle is incomplete. You see, if you apply the 80/20 rule to the 80/20 rule, you end up with two numbers. 4% (20% of 20%) and 64% (80% of 80%)... and these are the most important numbers in your business. Why? Because if you stay focused on doing the 4% of things that only you can do... You will create 64% of the effectiveness needed to be successful with your business. You then outsource the rest, or build systems and automation in order to maximize your output, keeping yourself focused on the most important tasks (your 4%). My wife and I are always asking ourselves and each other... "Is this your 4%?" ...Meaning. Is this something that ONLY you can do? So often we find ourselves doing things that any of our developers, designers or VA's can do, so we need to remind ourselves to do those things that only we can do. This is how we keep the first thing first and stay focused on the most important tasks at all times.

Rank #7: Facebook Advertising Math

Podcast cover
Read more

Are you tracking the right Facebook Advertising metrics? Do you know how to calculate your KPIs for successful ad campaigns? If not, you are setting yourself up to lose money on your Facebook ad campaigns without even realizing it.  If you get this right, you can move forward testing as sets, ads and campaigns knowing exactly what numbers you need to see in order to start scaling your FB ads fast! Facebook advertising is known to be the best ad platform available today, but most people struggle running profitable or break even ad campaigns... And it is because they don't know their numbers well enough! This video covers the two numbers you must track and how to calculate them for your funnel. Here are the two math examples from the video written out for you... First is an example where you make $100 for a sale. In this example, you have a 2% conversion rate on your sales page. This means you should expect one sale for every 50 visitors to your sales page. (100 / 2) Since this is the OTO your visitors see after they opt in, this means you need to generate 50 leads for every $100 sale... 50/$100 = $2 When you divide the 50 leads by $100 you get a $2 cost per lead... Or CPL. So you need to see $2 leads coming through your Facebook ads manager and when you reach the $100 spend mark, you should expect to see 1 sale! Simple, right? Ok, lets do the second example from the video... In this example, lets say you earn $25 per sale. You also have a 1% conversion rate, meaning it will take 100 leads to generate 1 sale on average. So you divide the 100 leads by $25 and you get $0.25 In this scenario you need to get 25 cent leads in order to be on pace to have one $25 sale for every 100 leads. Simple, right? Knowing your numbers is so important... And ignoring facebook's cost per click is often important since you need data that is backed by conversion. Also, stick around to the end of the video where I explain how to be sure you are getting real data from the facebook advertising system because they are notorious about trying to 'claim' more sales than they generate. If you want to go deeper and see how this applies to my past campaign, watch this video next: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mAsr-kO2G6E

Rank #9: 5 Steps To Success With Your Online Business In 2018 - How To Make 2018 Your Best Year Ever!

Podcast cover
Read more

Tired of following "fake gurus" with overpriced Internet marketing courses that leave you confused? This video contains the exact five steps you must take in 2018 to scale your online business and Internet marketing efforts.

I refer to specific links at the end of the video which you can find here:

My free course on how I went from side hustle to seven-figure business: www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=6g8eI5wavzB6Ggxzhegy4eRM3sd8MTUxNDM4NDU3MkAxNTE0Mjk4MTcy&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Fmillions&event=video_description&v=KeasDQ1cCsA

My one question survey asking what you need help within 2018: www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=6g8eI5wavzB6Ggxzhegy4eRM3sd8MTUxNDM4NDU3MkAxNTE0Mjk4MTcy&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2F2018&event=video_description&v=KeasDQ1cCsA

I also referenced Jay Abraham's strategy of preeminence as being worth studying… You can watch his video presentation on that strategy here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=2Gw14EJkzYs

With those links out of the way, let's move on to the actual five-step process here...

Step one: Figuring out who you can be of service to.

This step is the same as niche selection but I approach it from the idea that you either have experience that can be helpful to many from your past, or you can commit to becoming a helpful advisor or researcher on a specific topic that interests you.

In the video I cover how him pulling on your past experiences can make this process easier… And how these past experiences don't have to be professionally focused, they can be based on hobbies or sports you've participated in as an amateur.

For those who don't feel like they have a specific topic that they're already able to help others with, I share how finding what you're passionate about or interested in and willing to research, read, produce content on for a few years can also be an option.

The big key behind step one is that you are becoming a researcher on a specific topic to help save time and energy for your audience. Researching things you're already an expert in is easier, but researching things that you enjoy is also fun and easy too.

Step two is to figure out how you can most easily communicate.

Your options here are simple… Either video, blog posts in written form, podcasts in audio format, or advertisements.

The first three don't cost any money, but they are effort based. Advertising definitely costs money so this is only an approach you can take if you have a budget to work with.

Step number three is to create, create, create!

If you chose videos as your main method of creating content, then 2018 needs to be filled with you producing hundreds of videos throughout the year.

If you chose to blog then writing hundreds of blog posts is your job.

Same with podcasts, you must create, create, create!

This is content marketing in action and is the fuel to your online business' engine

Now if you chose to go the approach with advertisements you're still creating lots of content or advertisements, but you're more focused on testing the copy on the ads and the copy on your landing page.

The advertisement approach means you focus more on conversions then you do on audience growth through volumes of content published.

Step four is to grow your email list.

The job here is to become the preeminent leader in your chosen niche. This means you are more helpful than anyone else in the space… Which requires a lot of content published and making sure you share this helpful content with your audience via email.

The first steps are always to create a free giveaway that you can offer in exchange for their email address. This free giveaway must contain solutions to their problems or answers to their questions that they've been seeking.

Generally, you will offer this through a landing page, unless you use blogging then you can offer it through a pop-up.

Once users are on your email list the goal is still to deliver more valuable information, following Gary Vaynerchuk's jab jab jab right hook approach.

Step five is to help your audience get the products and services they already desire.

I share concept in this phase that desires never manufactured within your audience. Your job is to simply help your audience obtain that which they desire.

This comes from understanding your audience, their needs, their once, their fears, their desires.

Then you must create the content that's going to help them at least get on the path to solving the problems and achieving their desires.

Sometimes it's as simple as linking them to an affiliate product that does all the work.

Other times it's as complex as creating a membership program yourself and then populating the membership program with even more content that is specifically designed to help them achieve their goals.

The goal here is never to sell people something. It is much more about helping them obtain that which they desire… It's a subtle difference, but a big one!

Excited to help you make 2018 your best year ever!

Podcast cover
Read more

Search intent is the most overlooked part of keyword research and SEO. If you aren't generating the leads or sales from search, this keyword intent video is a must watch!

Too many people focuse solely on the keyword and the keyword data like search volume and keyword difficulty. This is a huge mistake because the most important factor is the user's search intent behind that keyword search.

When you match your content with the user's intent, and your SEO game is on point you have the true recipe for long term success with search engine marketing.

As promised in the video, you can access my free Learn SEO class here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8EI6JaFbv4&list=PL0sOKzn__yK2dufOveT6OWr-3mMdNAIYL (the first video in that series is the free SEO course)

You can get my keyword research trainings here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eofkzs0fVOA&list=PL0sOKzn__yK1kcevy9MZq5uBZyQKa487N (be sure to watch the first 2 videos in this series!)

I also mentioned how you can structure the 'informational' content and 'transactional' content into a silo structure to get an extra boost in yoru search engine optmization strategy...

Here are the SEO Silos videos that explain this strategy in detail: www.youtube.com/watch?v=NT5qlMCqx4U&list=PL0sOKzn__yK3PLiaxyAZF5OY5oRatw_Hv

To help you understand the ideas around keyword intent better, here is the content from most of the slides below for reference...

Why search intent is KEY to success -Boosts time on site & engagement. -Shows you “get them” and adds value -You stand out from the SE SPAM -Builds trust

The 4 Types of keyword search intent:

-Information -Consideration -Transaction -Location

Informational Search Intent -How to _ -Signs of -What is _ -Who was -When did happen? -History of __ -Where did _ start? -Different ways to

Consideration Search Intent -Top 10 _ -Best _ - Comparison -_ Reviews - or _ for -Category searches -“Home gym for _” -Electric bikes

Transactional Search Intent -Buy -Best deal for -Coupon for _ -Free shipping on

Location Based Search Intent -Service type - (locksmith or plumber) -URL or website name -Company name -Product search (vegan Chinese food)

Example – Pet owner needs a new vacuum that can clean up the pet hair. -Information - How to clean dog hair from carpet -Consideration - Best vacuum cleaner for pet hair -Transaction - Best deal on Dyson Animal 2 -Location - Dyson dealer

Master keyword search Intent and... -Users will enjoy your content more -Google will display your content more -You build trust more quickly -Your recommendations are better received

Rank #12: The Trick To Build Authority Fast without Facebook Ads.

Wondering how to grow your online business without Facebook ads? You need to become an authority in your niche and this video reveals the secret of how to do that.

In the last video I shared why I am not all in on Facebook advertising: www.youtube.com/watch?v=R4-DB3jXuQs

But that leaves you with the question "Well, ok Miles... Then what are you all in on?"

The answer to that question is simple... Building successful authority websites!

Then, the 'how do you do that?' questions come up, which is exactly why I made this video.

Now I am really only covering one core idea here... Being of service at scale.

This is one step in the new course I'm giving away for free called "The Million Dollar Business Blueprint - The Seven Step Process To Go From Side Hustle To Seven Figure Business"

You can get it here: www.milesbeckler.com/millions

The big idea here is you need to focus inward on your talents, passions and what you are good at, first.

Then you must decide what you can help people with... Solving a specific problem, accomplishing a specific goal, etc.

Find out the type of people searching for help with this, then go create and publish the content they are looking for to answer their questions and help them get on the path to achieving their goals.

When you do this correctly you are able to scale your efforts so your daily activities of publishing content and sending out emails can reach hundreds, thousands, even hundreds-of-thousands of interested people!

The power behind this process is incredible! And if you don't get this main idea right, you will never achieve long-term success.

Which is exactly why I created this video for you today...

To help you understand what it takes to build a successful online business.

Read more

Organic website traffic is some of the best traffic in the world. When Google sees your website as an authority on a specific topic or keyword and drives users who are searching for that keyword to your website… You have established a consistent source of highly relevant and highly targeted traffic. This is exactly how my wife and I have built our business and over the course of the last eight years we have generated something to the tune of 8 million visitors to our website mostly with organic traffic. This video is an overview of the concept about getting organic traffic from Google. We don't go too deep into the nuts and bolts of keyword research search engine optimization or search engine marketing in this particular video. If you want a comprehensive video that shows you exactly how to do SEO or search engine optimization which is the search engine marketing strategy used to actually rank your content on Google, go here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nu5lo2_WC1c All in all the theory of how to get organic traffic is relatively simple. You need to create high quality content that is hyper relevant to Google's users needs and questions. Then you need to optimize your content in a way that shows Google your content is the authority on that specific topic… Specifically being more authoritative than the website already ranking for that keyword phrase. Again this is search engine optimization and watch the video above for the "how to" side of it. All in all I can tell you firsthand that all the time and energy it takes to get organic traffic from Google is 100% worth it because once your website is ranking well and is an authority website in the eyes of Google you'll get long-term results and you will receive traffic for years and years to come.

Rank #19: Outsourcing & Virtual Assistants - My Virtual Team & Org Chart Revealed! Plus My Biggest Mistake...

Podcast cover
Read more

Ready to start outsourcing or hire a virtual assistant, but not sure where to start? This video reveals my entire team by walking you through my organizational chart and I share my biggest mistake I've made in outsourcing to help you avoid this challenge.

This video starts out with a concept behind our business and the goals of the organizational chart… You learn that Melanie and I are running a niche digital media business and why it is important for you to consider yourself a media business, too!

We start at the top of the organizational chart with the talent and then the second goal which is to protect the talent from all of the "less than valuable" tasks.

From here we begin to outsource the many different roles required to support the growth of our digital business, the syndication of our content, and the expansion of our reach.

If you are wondering why we operate with such an aggressive content marketing approach, be sure you check out this video: 5 Reasons Why An Aggressive Content Marketing Schedule Is Crucial To Your Success Online www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6egoStGCDA

You will learn who the first tires were, who are full-time teammates are, why we have backups for all of our teammates… And a cross-section of the "on demand" outsourcers we use for different tasks.

I share three of the places that I use and recommend as an affiliate to find teammates, or get help doing so.

#1 - On Demand Graphics Design - www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=w-0TNbLQrTW0tURojb7l-rqWnDF8MTUyNzIxODY0MUAxNTI3MTMyMjQx&event=video_description&v=RVFkvLrQmRo&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Fgraphics

#2 - Online Jobs Philippines - hwww.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=w-0TNbLQrTW0tURojb7l-rqWnDF8MTUyNzIxODY0MUAxNTI3MTMyMjQx&event=video_description&v=RVFkvLrQmRo&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Fva

#3 - Virutal Assistant Recruiter - www.youtube.com/redirect?redir_token=w-0TNbLQrTW0tURojb7l-rqWnDF8MTUyNzIxODY0MUAxNTI3MTMyMjQx&event=video_description&v=RVFkvLrQmRo&q=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.milesbeckler.com%2Fva-finder

For us, the biggest workload we first focus to offload was all of the graphics required to create a professional presence on all of the different platforms active today.

From Pinterest and Facebook to Instagram and YouTube, social media requires a never ending supply of high quality graphics.

Then all of the blog posts, header images, logos, book covers, product images, flyers, business cards, teacher designs, CD covers, etc... Have created a massive workload for our designer.

When you mix in the required graphics for the Miles Beckler brand, on top of our main business… We had to expand our graphics capability. Plus it is always good to have a backup because two is one and one is none!

For more insight to our Pinterest marketing plan, watch as video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FKIg8e_B5E

For more insight to our Instagram marketing plan, watch this video: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FW0HtJdEkY

The next area we began outsourcing was customer support. At first I did all of the customer support myself until the tickets were requiring multiple hours per day at this point we brought on a full-time teammate.

She doesn't just handle our customer support, she assists with our social media marketing, outreach campaigns, WordPress help, and a wide variety of other virtual assistant tasks.

Then we hired a backup teammate for her so we could be sure she has the freedom to take vacation time, sick time, etc.

Then we look at the different independent contractors we use for various projects and tasks...

From our content marketing team who takes my videos and turns them into blog posts, to our book editor, transcriptionist, layout design person, bookkeeper, accountant, to our integration specialist who helps us with managing active campaign, automations and fancy segmenting stuff that I don't like to do.

Once all of the roles are filled out in the diagram you see the video, you will begin to understand how this actually turned out to create the largest challenge were currently facing our business.

This is where things get messy! But that's okay, because success is messy : www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N177aj47N4

People in our space are always amazed at how small the team we actually have for the amount of traffic, leads and revenue were able to create month over month.

The biggest reason for this, in my personal opinion… Is that we constantly focus on our 4% rule… The 4% rule comes from applying the 80/20 principle to itself. This is how we always refocus our efforts on the most valuable activities, at all times.

Watch this video to learn more about the 4% rule and how it can be a massive breakthrough for you in your business: www.youtube.com/watch?v=eTNYmImzjYo

All in all, this is the biggest take away I can offer you for outsourcing to virtual assistants... Make sure you are outsourcing what you're not naturally great at and all of the items that are keeping you from doing the most valuable work that only you can do.
