A Message From Michael…
Okay, late New Years post. And there’s a reason which I am sure you have guessed.
Again, I was on holiday. What a surprise (sarcasm). This time, I was venturing into somewhere completely different.
After all the stints I’ve been having in Japan, I ended up finishing off 2015 in Europe:
Went all around the joint including Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy – majority done by car. More photos in my personal Facebook so feel free to add me or send me a message telling me who you are (Amazing places in Munich, Milano, Como, etc. Too epic of a journey to summarize here).
So that pretty much explains my recent absence (yet again). There’s a lot I can say about the previous year, and although I didn’t update the site much, there was a lot that happened. Long story short, I’d probably say 2015, the year past was probably the absolute best ever. Partied like a rock star, saw and visited places I’ve never been before, met some unforgettable people and more doors have been opened than ever before.
However, 2016 just started off with a blast. In fact, I was still touring around Europe at the dawn of this year and I actually just got back (hence the late post lol).
But that doesn’t mean I’ve been slack with business or anything. My new funnel is complete and you can go find out here exactly how to build yourself a gigantic list without doing all the grindy stuff (I am blogging now just for fun and sharing, not necessarily to ‘pump out content’).
As always I keep up my ‘confidence habits’ that I mentioned in a previous post. Still reading more, listening more and learning more.
So what’s next? Well I’ll be focusing mainly on List Building even harder than ever now while still enjoying life and other hobbies.
Honestly, you gotta have love for the game. You’ll never be successful in anything if you don’t love what you do.
The focus will be once again to get more done with less effort (efficiency). I can show you how to do that here.
Here’s to a much better year than the last! (Although 2015, set the bar very very high already hehe…)
Okay, so this topic came up a lot in discussions with me and my peers. A lot of people say that people can only be born leaders and are just blessed with confidence from the get go. Now this is probably something that can be debated endlessly and rightfully so in another discussion. I’m not here for that right now. However, I do not consider myself someone who was ‘born’ with leadership qualities. I wasn’t ‘born’ with all the mindset, all the concepts, the confidence and pretty much the notion of having my own way of thinking and discernment (probably will address this in another post).
To have confidence, self-assurance, trust and belief in one’s self was something that, in my opinion, I had to develop over time rather than ‘being born with it’. Without beating around the bush, here are some of the things I used as building blocks to feel a lot better about myself, gain more knowledge, increase self-awareness, and move forward in life without much worry or stress.
Here are some of them:
Let’s start off with these five above. I admit, they are fairly broad and I can easily expand on each one, but for now, these are the basic, general overview which you can probably find subcategories of activities relating to them. Some of these require a bit of effort and thinking but a lot of these are ridiculously simplistic and very achievable.
What methods you do recommend? Please share with me any of your experiences or recommendations when you can 🙂
Okay so an update is obviously long overdue. As you may notice, the last post before this was all the way back in New Years 2015. It’s almost the end of 2015 and not a single post done. Not even ghostwritten lol.
There’s really no other reason other than I’ve been focusing on other things. I wouldn’t call it laziness because I was still working on something. I wouldn’t call it ‘busy’ either but rather, I was being ‘productive’ (there is a HUGE difference by the way). One of my mentors always taught me never to confuse activity with accomplishment. Just because you are ‘busy’ doesn’t always mean you are getting ‘results’.
Anyway, as you may have guessed, I’ve been ‘productive’ with a lot of lifestyle-related things. Hobby related things. As well as other career-related stuff. However, this is still my personal space and I am still first and foremost, an internet marketer. Scratch that. I’m a marketer. I am a marketer of myself. My own brand. But yes, also the primary focus of this blog, is my point of view as an internet entrepreneur, sure.
One of the things that have really taken up my interest (and time) has been extras casting. As an internet marketer, of course we are used to being on camera due to our exposure to video marketing. However this is a little bit of a different turn, as I have been in works such as casting in various TV shows as a mere extra. No, no, I am not an ‘actor’. Just an extra. I say no lines. Just do simple actions, and you barely even see my face.
I am doing this merely for the fun of it but it so happens that it pays pretty decent too. It’s totally random though and I am just on call, when I’m not overseas somewhere exploring. So it’s kinda like a paid hobby of sorts.
Speaking of ‘hobbies’, this year is really finding myself in terms of creativity and expression. One of the most prominent ones that have also been taking a lot of my interest and time is martial arts. I did mention before previously that I have been mainly focusing on Filipino Martial Art variants, although now I have been taking it a little more seriously than before.
I’m ‘no longer a beginner but still a learner’. Almost a year into it now and it isn’t just a tool for neutralizing a threat. It’s also been a good journey of self discovery and discipline. Yes there are techniques and stuff that can be used. But there is also a lot of personal development involved. What’s so ironic and a little funny about it is that the same principles in martial arts also apply to a lot of business as well as life principles too. I have summarized them up in this manner so far:
*The basics are the most important. Mastering the basics is really the main thing I need to focus on, because the basic techniques aren’t really as ‘basic’ as they seem to be. But once you drill these basics into your muscle memory (in other words, unconscious competence) and you will reach a level that is second nature and at such a plane far above the rest who still have to think about what they are doing. Because all the advanced stuff is just a refinement of the basics.
*The mindset matters more than technique. If you don’t develop the right mentality, then your body or muscle memory won’t react enough to be in the state of performing the techniques when you need them the most, even if you’ve learned them.
*Be careful of which dojo or sensei you train with. A lot of dojos and clubs out there don’t teach you their real secrets for fear of their students surpassing them. Find a mentor who genuinely wants their students to excel them.
*You must always be open and willing to learn even if you’re learning a certain style and a set of techniques. Even if you’ve seen and done the same technique over and over again, there are still many different ways to apply them and use them from different angles. Don’t be confined to just one style, because other forms and martial artists have something useful to offer and there is a reason why things are taught. Don’t be fooled into thinking that one style is better than the other. Take what is useful to you and learn how to make it fit to your own unique traits.
*You are the best teacher you will ever have. Surely, you can get instructions from gurus, teachers or mentors, but you are ideally always the best person to teach yourself. Experience things on your own, ask yourself questions and answer them yourself. You can still ask a person for their opinion and advice to get another point of view and take them into their consideration. But only you know yourself better than anyone.
The funny thing is, these are all somewhat related to the principles that are also taught by my BUSINESS mentors as well. Though a little more apparent because there is a very very tangible, physical side to it even more so.
Speaking of business, well I’ve saved the best for last. Yes, I have been working on something behind the scenes with one of my partners.
Yes, my custom made funnel, my nuclear deterrent, my ultimate weapon is now almost complete. You can view the preview on the button below
And also I’ve been experimenting with new logos too. I’m not too fussy about logos, to be honest. I opted for something not too fancy, but a more timeless, classy, ‘designer’ type of feel. Here are some samples:
In any case, that’s all for now. I’ll be straight up – I’m not sure when the next update will be, as I will be planning a trip to Germany real soon. Going to start off in Munich, and perhaps have Christmas there or perhaps any of the surrounding areas (e.g Austria, etc.) so pardon me if I seem away again lol.
In any case, feel free to add me on FB or leave me comments and messages, whichever.
Yay first blog post of the year. And it hasn’t even been that long since the last one. First of all, happy New Year and welcome to 2015.
Last night kicked off the year with a blast, experiencing a bit of night life here in Tokyo (yes, still here as a write this post) and was great to meet some new friends as well as catch up with some old ones. Although most of my business is developed online, I do still enjoy building relationships and meeting people face to face too. It feels good to actually be out there instead of slaving away at the computer grinding the next new guru strategy (outsourcing is where it’s at!)
I did mention in my previous post that I’m reviving the Atelier section and going to post more lifestyle related stuff as this blog isn’t all just about business and making money (although it will be intertwined a little bit).
Had a quick road trip to Mt. Fuji, though didn’t quite work as planned.
…As the road was closed but at least I was able to get as close as in the photo above.
I’ve been rockin’ it here in Japan for a few weeks now, but the trip isn’t over yet. I’ve spent New Years here before back in 2014, but since I didn’t know what was going on at the time, I actually just stayed home. This time though, I actually decided to go out and have a drink (mind you, I’ve pretty much stopped drinking prior but I guess that night was an exception).
As the year went on, I looked back at the life I’ve been able to experience so far compared to where I was years ago. Even more so, the people I associated with and how much that’s changed.
Coming into the new year, I’ve said to myself (and publicly) that if anyone ever tells you to ‘be realistic’ – make sure you take a look at their own lives first and see how far they have been by ‘being realistic’ before taking their advice.
Of course, it’s good to keep it real. Set realistic goals and believe in them. But here’s the catch – who’s to determine what’s ‘realistic’? For you or for me? Or for them?
The last person who ever told me to ‘be realistic’ was broke, single and depressed. Now this person is still that way, and now I’m traveling to places that people have said I would never be able to see and do the things I’ve never been able to do while meeting great, friendly, positive people who believe in our own ‘reality’.
Now let’s not confuse that with living in a fantasy. I did have to go through some changes in my life to be where I am now. I remember Gordon Ramsey (or at least I think it was him) saying “It’s okay to have a dream – but don’t live in a dream world.”
Yes it does take some effort and self-development (even more so than the former) to be able to create your own ‘reality’ – but remember, nobody else determines what you can and can’t do except you. Only you determine what your limitations are.
Now the principle I want to briefly discuss here is – Who do we listen to?
There are probably many out there who believe they know what’s best for you and maybe they do. But again, look at their lives to see how well off they are with their own ‘advice’.
So how do we discern who we actually listen to? To sum it up briefly, I’ve always been taught to solicit advice from these people:
That’s a general guideline. This eventually leads to whom you get counsel from, but that’s another level. Yes we take advice and ‘opinions’ from experts in certain fields. But ultimately, you are the one who decides what your life is going to be like and where you want to go. Despite everyone else’ best intentions (and yes, you could consider their ‘opinions’ first if you like), it is ultimately you who makes that ultimate decision of what you really want and what you’re willing to do to achieve it.
In any case, bigger plans and a bigger vision coming this 2015. Going to roll-out a new funnel, bigger business ventures, new physical goals as well as personal life too (which now actually exists lol).
Rage on, 2015!
Okay, so it’s been AGES since I’ve updated this joint and funnily enough, recently I’ve found the urge to get this bad boy up and running again. Full-time like before? Probably not. I’ll admit that this space here was once mainly a lead generation tool and back in the early days of this online hype, a blog was definitely essential and probably still is.
Not that it matters to me though, since I’m done with the hype. Although I am still first and foremost an online entity, a lot of what I’ve been doing has been underground (hence the long silence) and have also been busy with other things which I’ll outline below…
But first things first…
Unfortunately, Aweber has decided to shaft me a while back, so my form on the right side of the blog isn’t working and you pretty much can’t opt-in (yet). Boohoo. But no matter, I still have my leads and I can always move to another autoresponder anyway later on.
I’ve been away usually multiple times during the year. I’ll admit, I got a little lazy with the blog but definitely have a lot more content I can post about now.
It’s Christmas Eve as I’m continuing this post (started it a few days ago, then stopped lol) and I am currently in Tokyo, Japan for a holiday.
Here are some pics after I’ve landed, though there are far too many to even post all of them here:
Honestly there are too many pics to put here in a single blog post, so if you really want to see more, add me on my personal Facebook https://www.facebook.com/michaelangelo.flores
Or I may even do individual blog posts on each of the places I’ve been going to. But I’ve mainly been invading Japan (pics above are mainly of Tokyo) after years of constantly visiting Singapore I think it’s time for a change of scenery though there have been quick intrusions in Indonesia as well as the Philippines – though more will be planned in 2015.
Now that I have finally got some free time, I’ve been focusing on getting back into the many things I am passionate about, namely my hobbies. Everybody needs a hobby.
I’ve been getting back on some combat training and fitness for starters. One of the many ways to stimulate the brain as well as be ready for my travels as I am often on foot and there are times where I go solo to certain places.
Here is a pic of the Kali sticks a friend got me a while back as presents:
I’m actually trying a mix of different forms, which have strikes, grapples as well as weapons. May throw up a video or two in the future as part of the Atelier (assuming I’m allowed to haha).
Another hobby I’ve been dying to get back into is Gunpla. Basically plastic model kits based on Japanese Sci-Fi called Gundam and these little robots really stimulate one’s creative imagination especially when detailing and painting.
Here is a recent work I’ve spent almost 2 MONTHS working on:
More on this at Customecha, who featured my work on their website: http://www.customecha.com/vanquish-gundam-exia-michaelangelo-flores/
Was a really fun project which did take a bit of time and imagination to finish too.
But the biggest thing that’s taken up most of my time was…
Yes recently this year I’ve moved to a much bigger home, with 4 bedrooms and plenty of lounge space. Moving in was really slow, had absolutely no furniture and limited appliances yet a rather big house too.
Lots of work needed to be done especially the garden as well as the swimming pool.
So there you have it. I hope that explains my not-so-mysterious disappearance but the truth is that I just got lazy with blogging haha.
But I want to get back into it, maybe not full time but once in a while and instead of hammering all the marketing and bizopps or money strategy every now and then (which I will still showcase from time to time, cause it’s pretty much the main meat of this blog) but I will also start to showcase more lifestyle and hobby related stuff – which pretty much means I am planning to bring more life to the Flores Atelier.
As for the Opt-In form, like I said it’s currently offline but will post another update once it’s up and running again. But like I said, you can keep in touch with me anyway via Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/michaelangelo.flores) and Email (email@example.com)
For now, have a Merry Christmas and Happy 2015 to you all. Thanks to all my friends and supporters over the years as well as the new alliances that have been made recently, you have not been denied! The next mission is just about to commence!
For years I been in this industry, for pretty much the same reasons most people have, similar hopes, dreams and desires all related to that proverbial ‘laptop lifestyle’, the whole ‘make money while you sleep’ thing, the ‘freedom’, the vacations, the family time, and all that good cliche stuff that we all know and love about this game and all that jazz.
As simple and perhaps maybe even shallow those things were, it was the obsession that consumed me for years, even after all the parties I missed out on, all the plans I cancelled, all the people I had to let go, all the nights I didn’t sleep.
I did the whole blogging thing. Wrote over 400+ posts, though some of them were ghostwritten, I admit.
Did the whole article marketing stuff, hundreds of them in Ezines and all them other directories.
Hundreds of Youtube videos and a few blocked channels.
Spent nights doing keyword research while everyone else was celebrating the fact that it was Friday or Saturday.
Spent money buying the latest tools and software for backlinking and tried to keep up with the whole Google trends and SEO (and I still don’t know a damn thing).
Listened to the gurus and was told to promote their ‘systems’ because they can apparently ‘build my business on autopilot’ when all they provided was hours of training videos on how to GRIND.
Spent money on solos, PPC, co-ops, spammed groups on social media, spammed friends, got blocked, slapped, kicked and deleted.
Been to hundreds of webinars, all of them selling the latest ‘tools’ and so-called ‘new secrets’ that ended up being a product launch by some guru who offers coaching for $5000.
After all that and then some, guess what? I was so burnt out and was forced back into the workforce just to get my head above water, even after following what people thought was the ‘secret’.
But this idiot never really understood the meaning of ‘giving up’ and thought ‘quitting’ was boring.
Now I been self-employed for almost two years, no longer do I drink the kool-aid nor fall for the latest hypey systems that supposedly had everything ‘done for you’ and all this ‘automated recruiting’ stuff that promised everything but delivered nothing but training videos on how to generate leads.
That’s what it’s all about, isn’t it? Building a list. A lot of systems claim to have everything done for you – the funnel, the sales pages, videos, even e-mail follow ups, whatever. But when it came to leads… you pretty much were just taught to do what everyone else is already doing and what every other system teaches.
Now I wake up every morning and I can now laugh at what was once the biggest problem I had in this industry and smile every time someone finds me on FB Graph Search and try to add me thinking they can pitch me their new business on my inbox or invite me to their Events while I am growing a list of subscribers by the hundreds daily with just 1/100 of the effort I used to put in generating 3-5 a day.
To all the people who believed in me and saw the potential in me when I was down and out, stuck by my side and knew I could do it even before I had any results – you know who you are and you know you’re all invited to you know where
To the others who doubted me, laughed at me, left me behind and even tried to take me down – I thank you from the bottom of my heart for giving me the motivation to prove y’all wrong.
But this is just the beginning. 100+ into my list daily and I’m just getting started.
Thank you Internet Marketing. It’s been quite the ride. Thank you for the experience. Now I think it’s time I take you for a ride.
(PS : I am not specifically promoting on a particular bizopp right now, and mate I’ve got dozens of them, but those of you who are serious and want to pretty much HACK the Internet like a gamer using Codebreaker, the doors are open for a very short time here : http://www.3minutelist.com/dap/a/?a=15 – trust me, it’s better than Action Replay hehe)
Okay, it’s been a heck of a long time since I’ve updated this. And I haven’t for a number of reasons.
One of the most obvious reasons is because I pretty much didn’t have the time and even when I did, I was lazy.
I was also busy…
Living my life…
I’ve been having my breakthrough ages ago, you see. And when that happens, you just want to start shaping and living your life on your terms.
And now that I am, you’ve seen things slowed down here a little bit (it’s almost been a year since I’ve posted here!), because I’ve been busy traveling and doing the things I’ve always wanted to do. And I’m still out there looking at more things.
However, this blog, my systems, my funnels, whatever are still very close to me, because they were a part of my journey, part of my struggle, they were my arsenal of weapons when I needed to win battles and eventually the war.
I still want to play with my toys once in a while.
Although I’ve taken up a lot of new hobbies (aside from video games and cars) which I have been heavily focusing on, this blog takes me back to those days when I was such a go-getter (still am though) at online marketing and was so fired up even though I had no idea what I was doing.
However there was a point where it became such a GRIND. Because I was so fired up, I was sucked into the notion of this whole ‘blog daily’ and you’ll get rich. Then I realized there was more to it than that.
I had to learn SEO, DO SEO, write articles, submit them to directories, buy software to submit them, used all these whacky tools to do all these things that the gurus sold to me.
Bought their solos, spent a lot of money, hoped for the best, you know the drill. Tried all these other programs, tools, methods, whatever. Spent money on ads.
Until I thought to myself… do I really want to be a marketer? Well I guess inevitably I ended up being one if I wanted to advocate money making activities online.
But you know what?
I didn’t come here to be a ‘marketer’. I didn’t come here to be an SEO guru. I didn’t come here to be a master advertiser, in fact, I didn’t even come here to be a ‘teacher’.
I came here to live my dreams and help others do the same.
Not by grinding it out. Not by working my ass off. But by showing others that I could live a lifestyle and make money at the same time, being LIVING PROOF that it works and it’s possible.
Not spending 8 hours a day on computer. Not having to spend time backlinking, spamming on Facebook groups, nor submitting articles, spinning articles, creating content, etc. I could hire people to do those things.
I mean actually living THE lifestyle. Traveling, eating, spending time with friends, family, working out, taking on new hobbies, getting involved in new business ventures, focusing on the things I actually ENJOY, not what keeps me stuck.
So people tell me “Oh, but I got in this industry to help people, build an empire, blah blah blah.”
THAT is HOW you help people. By having YOUR OWN DAMN RESULTS. You don’t help people just by being a teacher because a lot of teachers (not all) are broke.
You build an empire and help others by being an example.
So just what the heck am I on about here?
Okay, here’s the thing – I don’t do ‘marketing’ anymore. Okay, some may say this blog post itself is a form of marketing. Whatever. But I haven’t ran a single ad, nor bought a solo, or done PPC in over a year. Not that these things are bad. I am going to do these things again eventually (when I could be bothered).
But guess what? I am making money either way. Having a lifestyle either way. How?
Okay, ‘easy’ may a bit of a misleading word. ‘Simple’, I guess it’s more appropriate.
Without any more beating around the bush – YES you can make money WITHOUT marketing.
Don’t get me wrong – MARKETING STILL MAKES MONEY. And good money at that. If you enjoy it, then go for it, go do all those ‘marketing stuff’. If that’s your passion, go for it.
If you don’t like it – then outsource it.
But wait wait, doesn’t outsourcing cost money? Well yes…
If you were like me, sick of following the gurus, buying courses on every technique, tool, system, whatever but just want to make money online…
Not sure when I will be updating this blog the next time, but rest assured that I am still here and still contactable. Very much so. I love this blog and it looks sexy as hell so I still wanna make use of it.
But for now, I gotta go work out! I’ve done enough typing for today lol.
Love in laziness,

So you thought it didn’t make sense to make money with a Photo Blog or just thought it wasn’t possible?
The truth is, this is nothing new. Blogging has been a form of making money online for years. In fact, a lot of people are now doing it with things like food blogs, travel blogs and even fashion blogs.
So knowing that an income can potentially be made this way – do you not think perhaps that a photo blog could follow suit?
The difference in content though, a photo blog would obviously feature more images and very little text or none at all. But then again, travel blogs could be the same way too.
However the content isn’t the only thing you need to worry about if you want to actually make money from a photo blog.
Of course posting images and blogging all day and night is not going to get you paid no matter what you do with just a photo blog alone.
You want a photo blog that makes money.
Having said that, you need to have some sort of method in place that can actually monetize the traffic the goes to your photo blog.
Wait a minute, did I just mention traffic? Yes, you will need to get some traffic to your blog as well.
Without traffic and a way to monetize it, you can just post photos all day and night for an entire year and probably not make a single cent from your photo blog.
You may want to consider offering some sort of affiliate program on the side or even some advertising on your blog that can earn you some revenue.
There are many other ways to monetize your photo blog apart from affiliate programs and advertising. If you’re a photographer yourself you could offer your services to your audience too. You can even sell your own products on your blog.
It’s just that affiliate marketing seems to be an simple way because you don’t have to create or manage the product or service yourself – you just get paid for promoting it.
Would you like a simple, done-for-you affiliate program that you can sell along with a photo blog already set up and done for you? CLICK THE IMAGE BELOW to see how you can get started!
Of course like I mentioned before, you will need to get traffic to your blog in order to even get any sort of income from it. That’s really the key.
Don’t fall for the fluff out there that a lot of people say that just blogging will get you paid.
You will not only need a method to get paid from your photo blog but also a way to get traffic.
One of the fastest ways to do this is through social media. People love sharing photos and images of random things, especially on Facebook and now Pinterest as well.
What a great opportunity to showcase your photo blog content!
Now you can make money from just taking snap shots on your different projects!
But remember, strategy is key. You can build a following on social media but it would also help to build some search engine traffic on the long term, especially if you don’t want to spend on advertising.
So the myth of making money with a photo blog is actually true – from a certain point of view!

Lots of people say an MLM business grows when the people do. When joining an MLM or anything sort of Network Marketing or Direct Sales type of deal, you always want to keep in mind the kind of training you will get.
It’s true that you want the best training on marketing strategies and personal development when it comes to being an entrepreneur in the direct sales industry and you also want to make sure that the rest of your team eventually gets that kind of training.
However, a lot MLM companies and uplines alike like to emphasize the training of their teams and always be actively involved in every single process, doing every single support thing and hosting every single meeting to the point that they no longer have time to enjoy the actual lifestyle they’re trying to sell.
That’s not exactly what you signed up for is it?
In fact, most of us get into MLM because of the freedom and the lifestyle that it brings along with the money, right?
So why did we get into this thing when we’re stuck spoon-feeding our teams and being a slave to our prospects?
Here’s the secret that most of the MLM gurus out there use to build their business while also having a lifestyle at the same time.
They plug their team into a system.
Why spend most of their weekend training and lecturing their team when they can have pre-recorded webinars, videos, audios and action steps ready to teach anyone, anytime, anywhere 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, without you even being there?
That is what leverage is all about. You take a process that originally takes manual labor to achieve and let a system automate it for you so you don’t have to do it.
So instead of coaching any entire team over the phone on how to close prospects into your MLM, why not just tell them to listen to an audio training that’s already pre-recorded by the best closer in the industry and have them learn through that?
Using that method and third party training systems, your team members learn better (because they’re taught by the best) and you also get to free your time and do whatever you want.
This also encourages other people to join YOU because they can see that you’re actually walking your talk and enjoying life without being a slave to your team.
A lot of you may actually think this is all taboo and believe that you must do everything, you must be the face of the message, you have to be everywhere and you have to help your team with everything no matter what.
The truth is, that actually doesn’t help your team. Spoon-feeding your organization doesn’t allow them to grow the strength to build themselves and your life will suck.
So stop the grind and use a system that already has the thousands of valuable hours of training do the teaching for you.
Because that’s what you signed up for isn’t it? To make money and be free?
Or is it to make money and be a slave?
If you want to make money and be free, then just get over your pride and realize that you don’t have to be the face of every single message and you do not need to be a superhero who helps every single person in your team.
Besides, who wants to sponsor people who aren’t willing to help themselves?
I know I went into network marketing because of the lifestyle. I didn’t want to be a slave. That’s why I made the decision to use the SYSTEM BELOW to do the work for me while I spend the day doing whatever I want while my team still grows.
Well of course you don’t really need much rapport to shop for stuff on eBay or Amazon or anything when you’re already looking for a particular thing.
Or do you?
The thing is nowadays, most people don’t always buy from anyone and anywhere. No matter how good your marketing is, converting your potential buyers into sales can be an entirely different game to play.
This is especially true when making money online. With physical products and information products, the same principles apply.
So why do we need to build rapport with our target audience?
The simple reason is mainly that we tend to buy from who we trust.
Of course, when you shop at eBay or something, you don’t really need to know much about who’s selling to you other than their credibility and what others are saying. But isn’t that really the key?
The same goes for selling your own information products online. Affiliate marketing is no different.
We already know the power of story-telling in your content and how it helps people trust you. That’s why it’s all too necessary in a world where there is so much information out there and so many scams and opportunities going around.
That’s why it’s so important to build trust with your potential buyers before you actually sell them stuff.
Pacing is a communication technique that a lot of seasoned marketers in the industry like to use in order to relate to their target market. They remember and utilize a variety of stories to describe the particular situation that the audience may also be going through.
If someone can relate to your story – you get a feeling that they understand you and connect with you on your level. People tend to trust people like that.
Pacing doesn’t always work with everyone though, especially if you’re selling to a big audience. It really works when you truly understand aspects of your target audience or your ideal prospect.
When you understand their problems, issues, dilemmas all the way down to an intimate level, you can easily use pacing to describe a story that these people can relate to and convey that with your content.
Your story may not always connect with everyone, since most people have different problems. There could be broke people that you’re talking to, so you may use a story in your life about when you were broke. There could also be others who are not broke, but have a problem with getting their time back. So you could tell a story of how you got your time back through outsourcing or whatever other method.
So pacing is basically using different communication techniques and stories to connect with different sections of an audience.
Why? Because of course you want more and more people to trust you.
How can you NOT buy from someone that completely understands and knows what you’re going through and knows exactly how to overcome it?
This is something that probably can’t be mastered very quickly. The skill of building rapport with your audience may take a lot of practice over time and a lot of making mistakes as well.
You may also want to note a collection of stories you can use in your marketing. Write them down if possible but always make a mental note of the experiences that happen to you which are basically your armaments in your marketing and sales.
You will notice the most experienced copywriters and speakers always try to build rapport with their audience and often use their own personal stories to do it.
And don’t take this for granted – a lot of direct response marketers also use this philosophy in their advertising as well!
