Getting amazing customers even before you have a product

It´s a hard time doing business. At least thats what the media dictates to you. But is it really? There a millionaires and billionaires created every day, out of thin air.

Just look at Facebook.

But how can you create a business which is creating great value for your customers, before you even got the product? Discover it soon…

Because all business is based upon something that is very simple, but few actually get it. Even great marketers fail at this. Still wondering?

Well you have to get into the mind of the customers. Deep into it, to understand something, the basics which drive us every day.

The NEED and WANTS. Thats where you are going to make a lot of money if you just get a grasp on it. Because WANTS is an iPhone 5 right now, because its hot. You don´t need it if you got an iPhone 4S but thats just what you want, if you dont got the cash for it you will drop it.

But if you have a NEED, then you will do anything to get it rigth NOW.

So if you get of the pc for a little bit. Pick up a phone and call several people in an industry you want to deliver some value to, and just interview them about their day at work, you will get great info about a need. Ask them about their day, what they do from they get into the office until they pack up and go home. Take lots of notes and make them rate their pain level of each activity and the time consumed to do this activity.

After you got the list. Look at the top pain points they got. Are this something you could solve for them? Using less resources, time and money than they do today? Then Create it! NOW! Go do it! Stop reading!

Because if you create something that can save someone pain, time and money. They will buy it.

What pains do you experience in your daily life? What is the worst things you got to do at your job?

Discoverys on a Sunday

Today I had a really slow day. Just playing with my new Macbook Air 2011 and coming up with some things I needed, and something you maybe need to make easier use of your mac.

1. Rip DVDs with RipIT

I had the need to get rid of some CD/DVDs, so I though I would just put them on the harddrive. I was looking for an easy to use ripping software, what I found is RipIt, which is a software from a little company that sells it for about $20. Its really easy to use, and makes a copy of the entire DVD not any loss in quality to the movie. After you install it, a little window shows up, put in your DVD and click on rip it! Thats it! Cant be easier than this.

2. Putty for Mac OS? Does it exist?

I needed to get into a server with SSH. I first thought about Putty that I use in windows to accomplish tasks through SSH. Then I found out that the Terminal in Mac OS can be used for this task. Just type in “Terminal” in  Spotlight, click on it when it shows up, and write the following to connect to the server with SSH: ssh -X username@address. Then you put in your password and is ready to do what you want.

3. Mind mapping

I use MindMeister on my iPad but wanted to test some new mind mapping software to use on my Mac. I found this site: http://mac.appstorm.net/roundups/graphics-roundups/9-mind-mapping-tools-for-mac/ I explains a little about some different types and I tested the free one called FreeMind and MindNode2, of those to I got stuck using MindNode2 as it is easier to a Mac user than the other one, it blends more in and gives a cleaner look, FreeMind has some limitations that makes it unusable to me. Test the ones out at the page above to find your favorite.

I hope you enjoy my findings this sunday evening. If you got some great tips yourself on how to easy your life on the Mac, share it below in the comments and take care!

How to go to from ZERO or some connections on LinkedIn.com to about 800+ in 48 hours!

I don’t know about you, but connections, followers or friends in social media is really important to being able to spread your message and get on top of your area of interest or business.

So how about a quick way to get to over 800+ connections on LinkedIn.com?

See proof here got 500+ connections: http://no.linkedin.com/in/matsholmvik last week it was about 50-100 or something, I don’t remember.

It’s really easy. Just go to this page: Linked in connections

Click to sign up, its free, fill in name, email, password and choose the free version. Confirm your email and you are up and running.

Then go to Build Your Networks, click the link on the bottom of the page for the invite list. And download the 4 spreadsheets of emails of people willing to join your network, about 500 in each file.

Then head over to www.linkedin.com and click on CONTACTS  -> ADD Contacts. On the right side you will find a box, paste all the emails there and send invitations! Done!

Now you just have to wait for people to see your invitations, and most of them will accept your invite. And wait about 48 hours, then you will have 800+ connections like me!

BONUS:

If you would like to know how to monetize this brand new big network of your, put your name and email down under to get a short report on that:

Link Building on Auto-Pilot

As many of you know, starting out is hard, you need to do a lot with your website. Getting content, building links, tweaking, adding new features, market it other ways and answer all questions and comments that come in.

With this little golden nugget I have found, you can put parts of your link building on auto-pilot. It’s called IMAutomator. This is a free service for up to 10 bookmarks per day! If you don’t write more articles than 10 per day overall on your sites this will be enough for you. But if you need to bookmark more every day, they also have a paid version which can do that for you to.

All you have to do is signup for FREE at IMAutomator, then head over to the Bookmark page and fill in the URL, keywords, description, headline and category. Then you get 3 options, make all the links in 1 day, over a period of 15 days or 30 days. This is to make it look more natural to the search engines that your site is bookmarked over time.

Then the site works for you! Easy to do.

I hope you enjoy it and if you want more tips like this subscribe to my RSS feed.

More Sales In Only 3 steps By Split Testing

Guestpost by Amanda Gagnon

Take a look at that last promotion you sent. Go ahead, open it up.

How is your subject? Interesting enough to open? How about your call to action? So intriguing that you want to click it?

Good! But opens and clicks only measure interest. They’re not your end goal.

Your goal is to make sales. It’s the revenue from customer purchases that keeps you afloat. So a broadcast’s true worth can be measured in the sales it generates.

The trick is finding out how to put the message together in a way that prompts the most purchases. With a little setup, you can do this right in your AWeber account.

Step 1: Set Up Sales Tracking

First, you’ll need to make sure you’re tracking the purchases subscribers are making in response to each broadcast.

You can do this with sales tracking. If you’ve already set this up, skip to step 2. If you haven’t yet, head over to our Knowledge Base and follow these steps.

Once you’re ready, it’s time for…

Step 2: Tweak Your Promotional Broadcast

Start with your original broadcast design. The goal is to see if a different version will sell more, so you’ll need to create that other version.

To get started, take a look at:

  • Your call to action. Is your design eye-catching enough? Would different words be more compelling? Should it move above the fold (the point where readers need to scroll to see more)?
  • Your text-to-image ratio. Experts recommend a blend of 60% text to 40% images to illustrate your message while avoiding spam traps.
  • Your preheader. Do you have a whitelisting request? A link to your newsletter online? An unsubscribe link?
  • Your format. Are you using the best layout for your content? Or should you try one of these options instead?
  • Your images and copy. Are you presenting your product or service in the best possible light? Or would your readers respond better to something else?

Step 3: Split Test For the Winning Design

To figure out which design will generate more sales, use the broadcast split testing feature in your account. This sends each version to a randomly selected, equally sized audience so you’ll get the most accurate results.

After the broadcasts go out, follow the QuickStats for each version to keep track of sales. (Just click on the subject on the Broadcast page to see how they’re doing.)

QuickStats

Once you have the winning version, you know what design to use for future promotions!

How Likely Are You to Follow These Steps?

Does setting up sales tracking and a split test sound like something you’re likely to do?

If it does, what changes do you think you’ll test? We’d love to hear about your results!

If not, what’s standing in your way?

Don’t compete at SEO without knowing this first:

Hey there,
Those SEO big-brains, Dan Thies and Leslie Rohde are back today with yet another mind-expanding video tutorial. And this time they want to set the record straight.

http://problogger.no/linkliberation

See, some SEO “experts” might tell you that you can’t go after the big sites that rank for the big words. They might say you need to settle for the scraps of traffic you can scrape together from the long-tail…
This video proves different, and it’s all a matter of creating a solid foundation to build on. And don’t doubt it for a second because these guys have built a career of helping the Davids in the online business world go after one Goliath after another. The key is in the “ranking factors” Dan reveals in today’s free training video:

http://problogger.no/linkliberation

How many other guys can get dozens(!) of their STUDENTS to go on camera and share real results?
After you watch this, you’re going to SERIOUSLY re-consider those dreams of capturing Page 1 in Google for those high-traffic keywords… because you CAN.
