Let me tell you the part of my business journey into internet marketing. It's been two years since I joined Quick Start Challenge, and it was quite an adventure.
I remember 2014 like it was yesterday. I hired another so called marketing specialist to help me increase sales of my online courses. It was a blue point in my life when I was willing to give up.
Sales moved slow, and I knew I need to do something different, but I didn't know what to do. None of the experts couldn't help me.
They told me I need to change my niche and sell consultations, not e-courses. Even if I'm an expert in coaching and astrology, I didn't feel consultations my life mission. I felt frustrated. Very frustrated and almost broke.
So, I started looking for a better solution. I googled and »uncle Google« gave me interesting tips how to change my business. Don't ask me how I landed on one internet marketer's list. I don't remember.
I read a few his emails. Suddenly, there was a link to Quick Start Challenge 2015. I didn't think for a second. I felt I need to join immediately. And I did it.
When we started, I was on fire. I couldn't wait to start and implement as much as I could in that time.
It was the first time I heard about list building, funnels, email automation and how to do it properly. Even if I had a list, I didn't have the right system for mailing.
So many years, I did it all wrong and managed to survive. Just imagine what happened when I started learning the right way.
I realized I don't have a clue about right e-mailing and that's the No. 1 reason for my trouble.
Mailing is not just sending endless messages to people on the list. There's so much more!
What I did well, was giving value to my subscribers. I had the problem with writing the right sales messages and building sales funnels, and I had no idea how to fix it.
In Quick Start Challenge, I learned it quickly and easy.
Most impressing was the group of like-minded people. Many of them were willing to help on every step of my way. Most of them are my dear friends even today. We help and support each other.
Everything suddenly changed when I started using two new services.
My friends from Quick Start Challenge recommended them.
The first one (must have!) is Get Response and the second one (oh, God, how good it is!) is Thrive Themes.
Let me explain why I love them so much and why you should use them, too.
Get Response allows me to collect emails from different campaigns so I can send more targeted emails to my subscribers.
Automatically, I can add subscribers from one campaign to another, subscribe or unsubscribe them. I even send birthday messages with Coupons, tag them, add their score and create sales pipelines (CRM) there. It works like a clock even when I sleep.
Thrive Themes plugins (I use them all) took me a step further and worked perfectly with GetResponse. Thanks to their plugins, I can sort my visitors and show them just the offers related to the post they are reading.
They allow me to collect and assign the emails to the right email campaign so I can segment the lists from the day 1. If I don't segment them, people can do it themselves.
Did you find opt-in forms annoying? Especially, when you already joined that list? Let me tell you a secret what Thrive Leads does for you and your subscribers.
When the subscriber is reading his new post on my website, I don't show them opt-in offers anymore. They see the banner or the offer with buy link that takes them to the new offer or sales page.
There's so much more.
Now, I can easily test the headlines, create interesting quizzes for opt-in or sharing purposes. I can edit all posts on my page and see the changes instantly.
Now, I can add beautiful free courses to the funnels or connect them with another service and sell them.
When I want to modify the design of my website, I could set a new theme just with a few clicks or create a special, beautiful looking page in minutes.
Those two services changed everything for me. If I wouldn't choose them, I would probably have to hire a few employees to do all the work. The problem was, I didn't have the money to pay them.
After learning all the most important things for my business in Quick Start Challenge 2015, I took a lot of different courses and tried to learn from many mentors.
Some were good, and some were a complete waste of money. I spent tens of thousands of dollars to learn what I know today.
Quick Start Challenge is the best program I ever took for such a low price. It worth thousands of dollars to me and I will probably join the next one, too.
It helped me with a ton of motivation and good energy. It taught me how to set up new foundations in my existing business and much more.
Since then, I don't have to hire marketing specialists anymore. When I need to solve a new problem I know exactly how to search for help.
In 2015, I didn't know what affiliate marketing is. In Quick Start Challenge, I learned how I could even earn the commissions from the other people's products and services.
Honestly, I work hard to change my business model completely and don't have enough time or energy to work consistently as an affiliate marketer.
You can see yourself I don't manage to share my journey as often as I would like to.
The interesting thing is that I love internet marketing and earn commissions every single month since I tried affiliate marketing.
Sometimes my earnings are just a few tens of dollars, and sometimes they grow to 4-figure numbers.
Now, my life is completely different. I enjoy my business again and help other people more than I could assist them ever before.
It was no brainer to join the program in 2017 again.
