Teaching Online Marketers How To Create A Dream Lifestyle

The Laptop Lifestyle -Tales from a UK Digital Nomad, Week 5

Wow, what an experience. [ Main Pic. West Somerset Railway at Blue Anchor Bay Station, Somerset]

5 weeks and 5000 miles later on my constant travel around the UK and I have to admit. It’s time for a well earned rest. Driving can be exhausting..

I am currently in Chichester, West Sussex for a few days at my cousin’s house.

Charlestown, Cornwall

I am just starting week 6 of my travels around the UK & Beyond. This digital nomad life has it’s fair share of ups and downs and may not appeal to everyone, however despite a few early ups and downs, so far it’s been a great experience.

I’ve seen more of the UK in the last 5 weeks than I’ve seen in my entire life.

This last week alone, I have revisited places I haven’t seen since I was a child,  in Somerset (Minehead and Blue Anchor Bay).

I started my travels off last week by driving down to Plymouth in Devon, this is approximately 190 miles south of London. I arrived late in the afternoon and the traffic was building. The harbour in Plymouth looks great, it was getting late so I was looking forward to putting my feet up in an AirBnb I had booked..

There are lots of steep hills in Plymouth. I used the SatNav to find the address and was warmly welcomed. It was a nice place, a bit cold but it was quiet. The very next day, I moved on to Newton Abbot.

Dartmoor, Devon

This was my second AirBnb experience and it was a good one. The couple who owned the property were entrepreneurs themselves, so we had a lot in common.

I have often been asked on Facebook, why I don’t stay longer in some of the places I’ve visited. This is a good question. I am really doing a sorting process at the moment, I’m looking to rediscover my home country, the country I spent most of my life but didn’t see much of.

So, I’m cherry picking areas to revisit in more detail at a later date…

The Laptop Lifestyle – Is It All It’s Cracked Up To Be?

Obviously I can’t speak for others. I have noticed some Digital Nomads calling it a day after a few months/weeks and going back to having a fixed address etc. However, lots of digital nomads are living a great life in exotic countries.

You have to be realistic. Not everywhere has good Wifi. Even though I have mobile wifi on the laptop (Thanks BT Wifi Fon), even this can’t be picked up everywhere, however some places that I have  stayed at have had good Wifi (so does Costa’s & Mcdonald’s etc).

Also, if you are constantly travelling, you may skimp on work, as this can be your bread and butter, always make sure you find some time to deal with Income producing activities. You need to keep building your business, or you’ll end up spending more than you’re making… and this is so easy to do if you are not careful.

If you are travelling by car, you have petrol, you have food costs and you have accommodation. This can amount to quite a bit, so to keep costs down, you could apply the following.

Boscastle, Cornwall

The Laptop lifestyle – How To Keep The Costs Down

1). If you have friends or relatives who could put you up now an again, this would save a bit. or/and, you could go housesitting   yes, people will let you house sit and look after their homes while they are away. One of my good online marketing friends has a 3 month house sit in Canada coming up. That’s 3 months of Free accommodation, wifi and the owners have even given her 3 months use of their car.. .I know, it sounds crazy, right?..

2) Don’t keep eating fast food. I was guilty of this for the first few weeks, I ate it ever day and put on a whole load of weight around the waist. Buy some healthy food from the supermarket and find AirBnB’s that will allow the use of their kitchen. If the worst comes to the worst, go into a supermarket, or a subway shop and order a salad…

3) I did a lot of Zig Zagging across country at first in the car. This led to a lot unnecessary petrol use. I was like a kid in a candy shop at first and wanted to travel “everywhere” in the UK. It’s best to plan your route daily and go the quickest (or most scenic) way. It’s your choice, whatever way you choose..

This week I visited, Devon and Cornwall, specifically Plymouth, Newton Abbott, Dartmoor, St Austell, Charlestown, Bridgewater, Taunton, Torquay, Paignton & Boscastle, and in Somerset, Minehead, Blue Anchor Bay & the Medieval village of Dunster.

I will be hitting Europe and the rest of the World at some stage, but for now it’s the UK for me.

I hope you got some value from this post, if you did, do leave a comment in the comment section below. And if you have been thinking of going on your travels. Do it while you can. Who knows what might happen down the road.

Have an Awesome week

Keith

P.S You can travel anywhere if you have the right online business, and of course if you take plenty of action. This is one of the streams of income I have helping me power my travel.

Laptop Lifestyle – How To Make Money and Travel

 

 

The Laptop Lifestyle – Week 4 Update. Touring the UK

A Quick Recap. I recently posted about the start of my journey. I left my home in Broxbourne, Hertfordshire England on September the 11th 2017 to pursue a long held dream of mine. To be location free.

I wanted to tour the UK, then Europe, and on to the World. This was a big goal. Travel, for me has always held a huge attraction, and making money while on the move was an even bigger draw. So how is this even possible?..

It has been made possible because of the power of the Internet. Today, more and more people are becoming “location independent” and are bringing their business on the road with them.

As long as you have an Internet connection, you can run a business. Selling products online is big business nowdays if you know what you are doing,  and there seems to be an insatiable appetite to buy good products that people can access instantly.

The Laptop Lifestyle – So, what products do I sell while I’m on the road?

I sell digital products. If you sell digital products, you don’t have to worry about delivering them personally. I tend to sell more high ticket products these days as this really is where the money is. It’s not that much more difficult to sell a product with a $1000 commission than it is selling a product with a $25 Commission.

I mainly concentrate on getting the traffic and sending it to a recorded webinar or capture page. If you go with an “all in” package, you can get the sales funnel & the email follow ups done for you. This is ideal, if you want a “hands off” business.. I just set the traffic and monitor the business at will.

I’m not saying it’s all this “easy” but a lot of people make this business so much more complicated than it needs to be.  Don’t try to  do everything and don’t try to be everything to every one, this will only lead to frustration and heartache. The “simple” version would be to sell products other people own, and sell them on commission.

Keep it simple..

This is a great way to get into the Internet Marketing business. It’s called Affiliate marketing and can work extremely well if you are prepared to put the work in. The idea is to build a list of people that you can market to on a regular basis and build your business from there.

I also use a blog and youtube videos to promote my capture pages. If you are just starting out, you don’t have to do this to get traffic. There is plenty of free traffic available on Facebook. (Nearly everyone is on Facebook these days)..

It really isn’t that hard once you get the hang of it. I’m actually writing this blog post from McDonalds in Skegness using their free Wifi.

The Laptop Lifestyle – Is it really all a life of dreams on the Road?…

NO.. I won’t kid you.

If you are going to do it, try doing it with a partner. It can get lonely. Although, if you are quite chatty (like me), you’re never alone for long.

Some B&B’s are OK, but some are horrendous. You might be better off going on to Air BnB  some of these rooms can be booked very cheaply (especially if you book a week or month), or you can try going free by being a Housesitter (I haven’t tried this yet), there are also many hostels around the UK, Europe and the World.

So, you need to be earning while you are on the move. The best way, in my opinion is to be marketing high ticket products and/or services, the reason being is, you want decent commissions to pay for your travel, getting one or two $25 commissions a day will help but won’t pay your travelling bill.

I hope this gives you a bit of an insight into being on the road and running a business. When you start out, make sure you have regular commissions already coming in, get a Sat Nav for your car, don’t forget your credit cards…

I keep track of my spending much better if I use my credit card and pay it off each month from the bank account I pay my commissions into..

Prepare yourself for a fun (sometimes frustrating) experience. There is nothing quite like travelling and making money.. Let me know your experiences in the comments below. Or P.M me privately on Facebook if you have questions 

Have Fun…

Laptop Lifestyle – How To Make Money & Travel

In the thoughts of many an online entrepreneur, there lives a strange beast. Commonly known as the Laptop Lifestyle, this much sought after dream comes dressed in many guises, and often reeks of cow dung, fertilised by the mouths of the many who try to sell it to a ready waiting audience.

Is it wrong to sell the lifestyle, if we ourselves are not living it?. Good Question..

Link to the Facebook Post

We all have to start somewhere and some people are obsessed with “fake it till you make it” but I personally don’t agree with faking anything as people are not stupid and with so many scams around, people are pretty perceptive and can smell #BS a mile off.

Instead of faking it, show people your vision and tell your story. People love a good rags to riches story.. but make sure it’s true.

Laptop Lifestyle – WHY?

The reason is, the Laptop Lifestyle is very “sellable”. And many, many people want it. After all, it sounds pretty good doesn’t it, touring the World, staying in luxury hotels and earning money..

The thing is, when you try to sell a dream and you yourself are not achieving that dream, people will lose faith in you. And in order to live the dream you need to have many people who believe in you and will buy your products..

SO, what is the answer?.

Sell, your Story..

People love a good story. Especially one coming from someone who struggles, (or struggled) and finally made it. Share your vision with people. If your vision is on a par with the audience you are targeting then they will follow you, roll with you and often buy from you..

When I was a new Internet Marketer, I could have #BS’d my way into much earlier sales and commissions, but I chose not to. Here’s why.

I didn’t want to build a business based on LIES!.

I wanted people to follow and grow with me based on my struggles (and there were plenty).

Many of my friends and colleagues online are living their dream. Some are travelling and making money as they go, others take a few more vacations than normal and don’t worry about the expense..

We are all different. Not everyone wants to lie on a beach all day squinting from the sun, while trying to decipher what’s on  the computer screen whilst also dealing with dodgy wifi all day long..

I’m just beginning my first major journey since I started IM back in 2010. I sold my house and I’m going to travel around the UK first (my home country) as I’ve lived here all my life but never seen much of it.  Then I’m travelling to Europe later this year and then on to other Countries..

The reason I can do this is because I learnt the hard way (at first), then I learnt the sensible way.. And believe me, the sensible way is best. (If you want a short cut to the sensible way, click here)

Link To The Facebook Post 

Here’s my personal checklist for you on how to go from struggling marketer to living the Laptop Lifestyle..

Step 1. Don’t follow the crowd. They are the crowd for a reason. They work 40 or 50 years of their life 5/6 days a week so they can “earn” one or two days off a week. to pay bills have a couple of decent holidays a year just so they can work their way through life then retire..  They play it safe most of their life

Bad News. 30% of all people DON’T make it to retirement age. Of those who do, 95% retire borderline broke, 4% downsize to subsidise their pension and only 1% retire financially free.

WHAT SORT OF SYSTEM IS THAT?…

Step 2. Don’t Just Sell Low Cost Items. When you create a “Sales Funnel” create it deep. A Deep funnel is one that has multiple products inside, but MOST importantly, a HIGH Ticket product at the end. This can be a $1000, $2000 or even $5000 Training product or even a live coaching package..

Don’t SKIP this step… it can mean the difference between constantly trying to chase your tail and making hardly any money to making all the money you want to finance your “Laptop Lifestyle”.

(P.S – If you want us to do everything for you, supply the High Ticket Product, a whole range of other products, the funnels, sales video, payment processor… we’ll even do the follow up emails for you until they BUY!.. PLUS, we’ll even teach you how to get the traffic… Click this link for a free presentation. 

Step 3. Don’t Give Up, not now, not ever. Believe in yourself enough to keep going until you succeed. No matter how hard it gets (and it will) just keep going. The alternative is not going to be pleasant.

Step 4. Stay Away from Schemes. When a lot of people come online, they seem to spend an awful lot of time doing anything but what they should be doing. Selling products. It’s so easy to get attracted to get rich quick schemes and other ludicrous ideas that many people burn themselves out doing multiple businesses and crazy schemes until they finally just give up..

Confusion, balancing multiple businesses is one very quick way to fail early on. People who run multiple businesses successfully do it by becoming successful in one first. Take Richard Branson. He built one business first (Virgin Music) then he added other businesses to his empire and got others to manage them..

If that is good enough for a billionaire like Branson, why would you straight away jump into 3 separate businesses?

OK, this post is getting a little bit long now.

I hope you got value from it. The pictures you see on this page were taken by my smartphone on my first week’s journey to the “Laptop Lifestyle,  I hope you liked the post. If you did, please share it and leave a comment below.

Thanks.

Why MOST People NEVER Make Money Online & How To FIX The Problem

I think I am qualified to tell you why most people DON’T make money online. I struggled for years until I made money online, nearly lost my house doing it and generally got SO beat up online, I thought about QUITTING.

All those stories of “Easy” this and “Push Button This”.. it’s all marketing hype. This is designed to keep you buying products. Let me tell you this, although some products actually “help” you to make money online… it’s not a product that you really need to be a successful marketer, it is an “adjustment” to your current thinking…

make money onlineHere’s what I mean..

The first thing to remember is,  because something is NOT working for you, doesn’t make it a SCAM. If you go around thinking everything is a scam, you are clearly carrying the wrong mindset around with you. This is NOT the mindset of Successful Entrepreneurs..

Let me clarify this. Affiliate Marketing, Network Marketing are just different ways to sell products online. Neither are Scams, however, they do have people in them that scam people.

Scammers are there in all walks of life, not just the Internet. If you are living in fear of getting scammed, you will never branch out and do what it takes to be successful online.

Entrepreneurs are not people who constantly fear being ripped off.  Entrepreneurs are people who are willing to risk time and money into an “unknown result” in order to prosper..

You have to believe in things before you see a result. Non Entrepreneurs want to see things before they will believe it.. that’s the difference.

ways to make moneyWhy MOST People NEVER Make Money Online & How To FIX The Problem

OK, let’s look at actually fixing the problem, instead of talking about the problem.

Step 1. Check your mindset. Is it the mindset of a person who is about to become successful?.

Bad Mindset:

A) Blaming others for your lack of success. We live in a “blame” society where people feel entitled. They blame leaders online, they blame the lack of information, they blame the quality of the training… everything but themselves.

The reality is, no one is going to make you successful, except YOU. There is a huge amount of great information online, and many great leaders who can help you. If you never approach anyone or seek out the right information, then take ACTION… of course nothing will happen.

B) You have to spend Money. Yes!.. in an Alice in Wonderland World, everything would be free and money would pour from the Rooftops, however.. we are living in the REAL World. You have to spend money on training & tools. You may also have to spend money monthly on products if you are in a Network Marketing program.

Get used to spending money. If you want people to give you money, you have to spend it.

C) For things to change, your current circumstances will have to change. I see so many people making this mistake. If you want to live like others only dream about, you are going to have to make sacrifices in the short term.

Some things will have to go. You may have to cut out some or all of your TV, Gaming, Clubbing, Vacations etc for a while. Business never stops. When you are asleep, you should be earning money. This is what a true residual business is, you learn to create income 24/7, 354 days a  year.

OK, so clear the blockages you have about business and money. Believe that you can do it (if others can, why can’t you?).. and let’s get with the Good Mindset.

Good Mindset:

A) Learn to be unstoppable. Stop blaming others and “things” for your lack of Success. It’s YOU, only you. Man up – Grow some Ba**s and admit you are Wrong. You have been letting yourself off for too long for your lack of success .. It’s time to admit, you have not been doing what you are supposed to do.

You haven’t been putting in the hours. You haven’t been training your mind daily to be more positive, you’ve been HOPING for success but NEVER had the FAITH in yourself to pull it off.

This has got to STOP!..

B) Money is Energy – Let it go. You’ll never make room for more if you hang on to money with a stranglehold. You are just sending the wrong message out to the universe. You’re saying that you do not have enough faith in your ability to make more. The World is full of Abundance, there is more money in this world than anyone could possibly need.

Let it go. Invest in yourself. Pay for great training, pay for a mentor. Invest in a good company, good products.. Invest in your business and stop trying to do everything on the cheap. You are fooling No one..

C) Courage. If someone has done it, it makes sense that you can do it too. If you have spent a long time trying to make money online and you’re not there yet, have the courage to change your strategy until you find one that works. You don’t have to know everything nor try to learn everything to make money online.

You just need to be willing to learn, turn your knowledge into money by selling what you learn, or/and sell other peoples products by giving value (what you learnt) first before asking for the sale. If you only ever digest one paragraph, make sure you digest this one.. for within it lies the SECRET to Success over Failure..

And that’s me done.. Whew!!

I hope this has been useful..

All the best
