How To Start An Online Business | 2 Keys To Passive Income And Time Freedom


– Hey it’s Leah Rae
from ToddAndLeahRae.com and recently I sat down with someone who was working hard
to build her business. She was providing value
in groups on Facebook building audiences and
responding to people’s messages on Twitter and Instagram along with making posts
and networking with folks. Plus, she was promoting products from two different network
marketing companies along with two different
affiliate programs. She opened up to me and said that she’s actually sat down at her computer and cried more than once. She is building this online
business to create time freedom. And she’s had the realization
that if this takes off, even if her business, you know, when it starts to get into profit and she’s really able to
replace her current income, she’s still not gonna
have any time freedom. She’s gonna be stuck at her
computer working all day long. And that’s exactly what she doesn’t want. Here it is folks. It is really easy to get
hustling and find yourself in a place where you’re
creating more work for yourself instead of the time freedom
that you’re seeking. Now thankfully I was able to
help her get onto a better path streamline her efforts and make sure she was actually building
towards her dream of time freedom instead of creating a
nightmare of just another job that she had to work herself. Since this is a pretty
easy trap to fall into I really wanted to talk to you today and give you the two keys
that you need to understand to make sure that all the work that you’re putting into your business it actually goes towards
getting your closer to the business and the
lifestyle that you want to live. Now am I saying that you
shouldn’t be hustling to create your business? Absolutely not. It’s going to require a lot of work to create the type of business and the lifestyle that you’re looking for. Especially at the beginning. But I wanna make sure that
you’re doing it the smart way. That what you’re working
on now works for you instead of you creating
more work for yourself. Now key number one is to focus
only on one target audience. One of the simplest ways to
create more work for yourself is trying to serve multiple
different audiences instead of just one. Yes, you should have
multiple streams of income but they should all fit
together as trying to solve different problems that
your one audience faces. So if your audience is interested in learning how to make money online then you should have an opportunity that they can make money with. You can then also provide them with the tools and the training that they will need to create
a successful online business. Something like the
attraction marketing system we refer people to, My Lead System Pro. And email autoresponder
like Active Campaign. And maybe a great
Instagram training course like what we offer. All of these offers still
serve the same audience, people interested in
making money from home. Now compare that to someone
who has an affiliate offer like MLSP that they wanna promote plus a couple of network
marketing companies that they’re pushing
individual products for, say a discount program and
maybe essential oils company. So instead of just creating content and building one audience they have to do three times as much work. Because those audience are different. People who are most likely
to buy essential oils aren’t the same people most likely to wanna join the discount program. And they’re different from
people who want to learn how to make money from home. By working with multiple target audiences you are definitely creating
more work for yourself. Do yourself a favor and simply
focus on one target audience. And only add income streams that serve that same exact target audience. Now second key is choosing
marketing strategies that work for you instead
of making more work for you. People can easily fall into the trap of focusing on strategies
that require continual work and not long-term strategies. Yes, networking, providing value, doing Lives on social
media, all of that works. You do bring in leads, you’re gonna bring in sales, you’re gonna build an audience. But if you’re only doing this type of work you’re guaranteeing that
you’re gonna have to continue to do this work to make any kind of money. If you stop doing the work, you wanna take a break
or maybe just a vacation, the money will dry up. What we advocate is that
these types of strategies should be layered on top of
long-term content strategies. Something like blogging,
YouTube, or podcasting. While all of these are
long-term strategies, YouTube is definitely our favorite because it’s not only a
great way to deliver content but it’s also a search engine, the second biggest search
engine only to Google. Why does that matter? Because new people can find
your videos each and every day whether you’re working
or you’re on vacation. So if time freedom is what
you are working towards, you should focus on one of these long-term, evergreen, content strategies. Then you are building up online assets every time you publish another video, post a new blog post, or publish another podcast. These online assets
can serve your business for years to come, creating content that
people can find 24/7, years later, that can
continue to bring you leads, bring you sales and signups whether you’re working or not. Now these long-term strategies typically don’t bring in a lot of
action right in the beginning when you’re first getting started. So that’s how you can use
the networking, the Lives, and all that kind of
stuff on social media, to really strip sales
and layer that activity on top of your long-term strategies. Plus you should use these
audiences that you’re building on social media, whatever
platform you’re on, to promote the content
that you’re creating. Whether that’s sharing your blog post, your videos, your podcast, whatever, to that audience. Now if you follow these two concepts, you keep them in mind as
you’re building your business, you can create a business
that works for you whether you’re working or not. So you don’t just create
another job for yourself. Now for some great training

  1. I really believe Affiliate Marketing will definetley help a lot of people in the years to come. But like any successful business it will only work if you put in the work! Awesome video Todd and Leah Rae!

  2. Its interesting how we can create a job for ourselves to replace our current job. I agree, all about creating systems that have long term sustainability with or without you, awesome vid Leah!

  3. Wow…it is so easy to create another "job" in your business. I have seen many self-employed people have to work which to me defeats the whole point of being self-employed. These are great tips. Thanks for reminding us.
