It’s 2022 and Internet Profits started its new coaching program 🙂
I’m only a few days in, but can already tell this is going to help tremendously! To say I’m excited is an understatement.
It’s going to be tough for me too, at times. I’m going to be held accountable and I’m going to have to face uncomfortable stuff some days.
The way it works is like this: in the back office, we can submit any questions we have. As long as the question is submitted before midnight, it will be answered on the next coaching call. We then have the call and the coaches answer the questions in great detail.
I’ve attended two coaching calls so far, and they both went well over an hour! I didn’t need to listen to the whole lot, by the way, but I learned a ton, so I did!
There are replays available, for those who are at work or otherwise occupied and can’t make the calls live.
The first question I asked was about my traffic strategy… as this blog is an honest record of my journey, I’ll just share this here in all transparency. My biggest challenge is NOT TO DO TOO MUCH. I see potential in absolutely every traffic source, and I end up having my fingers in too many pies.
So I asked the team for honest feedback about my traffic strategy, and one of the things that came up was my lack of a paid source of traffic.
My main traffic source is YouTube, and YouTube is relatively slow. There’s nothing wrong with that – it brings me commissions and it’s something I’m building for the long term. However, the fact that it’s slow also means I tend to go to other places to get eyeballs on my content – and the risk with this is that I spread myself too thin.
Anyway, one of the coaches mentioned Facebook lead generation ads, and that sounds like an epic idea. So I’ll look into that as a paid traffic strategy.
That means I’ll have YouTube as my organic strategy and Facebook lead ads as my paid one – sounds good.
Now I have to be honest here: I am also present on other platforms, always with the aim of pushing traffic towards my YouTube channel. Clubhouse is a big one for me: I do a daily morning room on the topic of affiliate marketing. I also answer questions on Quora, and I repurpose my YouTube shorts on TikTok. In addition, I still have my free Facebook group… but that’s my next question for Monday’s coaching call: do I keep it or do I ditch it?
This blog post is a little all over the place, isn’t it? I just wanted to share the kind of stuff we can ask and talk about in these coaching sessions. I’m going to make the very most of them; it’s going to help me move forward and be accountable. It’s going to help me stay focused. I can only wish that everyone starting an online business has this level of support – if I’d had this from the start, I’d be in a different place already, I’m sure.
