Once upon a time people would give you their email addresses for nothing, they would give you their Email addresses, just for the sake of giving you their Email address. The word ‘Spam’ just did not exist, people were just happy to receive Emails. Emails were so few at this time, nobody in their personal life were using them. They might be using them in their work life, but personally, nobody really knew their email address and nobody understood how profitable they could be for marketing. So to actually get an Email, was so exciting and people loved to open them…..
Let`s Zoom Back To The Present Day
How times have changed!!
Now you literally have to blackmail people to give you their Email address, they certainly will not just give it to you. This is people are sick to death of ‘Spam Emails’ constantly filling up their email inbox. You do not just get the one email, its a constant stream of them, all trying to sell you things that you just do not want or need. You have to be able to give the person, something of interest to give you their Email address. This is called a ‘Lead Magnet’ in the Marketing world. This is where you offer the person you are talking too or is reading your blog or advert, either a E-book, PDF document or Video. These are usually giving great value or training on something of interest to the person. To get this ‘Lead Magnet’ they have to give you their Email address.
How Do We Record Their Email Address?
This is usually done by a Email Capture Page that is designed to get the information. Once the person clicks on to receive whatever you have as your ‘Lead Magnet’, it will automatically take them to your Email Capture page for them to input their information. It can record so much other data too, like their full name, phone number or postal address. You decide what information you want the page to capture, but just remember, the more info you ask for, people are going to be less likely to give you that information. Most therefore just ask for first name and Email address.

You will need to have a Blog to be able to use this method effectively!!

The better value you put in to your Blog, the more people will keep coming back to your Blog to get the awesome value you are giving out.

The amount of great value on YouTube is infinitive, you cannot watch it all in a lifetime, as there are people putting great value on it, every minute of everyday!!
How Do I plan This Watching & Learning Value From YouTube Into My Day?
You need to plan your days out, from the time you get up to the time you go to bed, what you are going to do. If you do not do this, then you will not stick to a routine. Your day will be filled up with all sorts, and you will get nothing done. So start of with what you do when you first wake up. You need to stop what everyone does, and that is look at Facebook or your Emails. You need to spend the first 20 minutes focusing on mind and getting it ready for what you need to do. If you need to go to work, then you will need to start waking up a little earlier, to do this meditation and focusing on the mind. Its the most important time of the day, to get your mind focused on the day ahead….
Build Your Daily Schedule!!
Look at the rest of your day, if you have to work then you need to include that in to your schedule. Break your day up in to 30 minutes of the day. For example :-
7 am to 8 am Meditation & Get Up
8 am – 8.30 am Breakfast
8.30 am – 9 am Walk The Dog
9 am – 10 am Reading & YouTube
10 am – 10.15 Break
10.15 am – 12 Noon Create Value Blog Post
Noon – 12.30 pm Lunch
12.30 pm – 1.45 pm Update Social Media Auto Poster software
1.45 – 2 pm Break
But you get the idea!! break your day up in to manageable chunks, and include regular breaks too. You will not stick to this routine without them!!
DO NOT OVERWHELM YOURSELF!!
Keep it achievable!!
You will not achieve anything if you feel it is not achievable.
Work with this list until it becomes a natural routine. Try not to break it, arrange other appointments for a certain time of the afternoon that you can assign for personal appointments, if needed
If you have to work, then you need to add that in to your day and plan your day around your work. It will be a little harder, but if you are determined to change your life, then you will do it!!!!
