Here is your first edition of Turning Your Knowledge Into Profits!

Today we are going to talk about a great place to post your trainings online and make a little extra cash!  Our resource today is : Learnable.com

So what is Learnable?  Here’s their tag line…

Got a passion?

  • Share it at Learnable.
  • Make an online course. It’s an easy way to share what you know!
  • We’ll find the students if you make the course. Deal?

So here’s your BIG question…

How do I make money?

Like this:

  1. You prepare the course and create on their system using the Learnable course tools.
  2. Learnable hosts it and looks after the technicalities behind the scenes.
  3. When a student buys your course, Learnable keeps a percentage of the fee.
  4. The rest of the money goes direct to your Learnable account.
  5. Once it hits $100, you can transfer it to your PayPal account.

To get an idea of course pricing, take a spin through their course catalog.

You (and Learnable) make money from enrollment fees.

In most situations, enrollment revenue is split 50/50 between you and Learnable.

They are also working with “channel partners”—high-traffic web sites who may be interested in promoting some Learnable courses. If a student enrolls in your course via a channel partner, your share is 20%. The 80% is split between Learnable and the channel partner—who in return for promoting Learnable courses to their audience generally ask for a significant part of that 80%!

You aren’t obliged to allow students to enroll via channel partners. If you opt out the split is 50/50 for all enrollments. (but I’d recommend that you don’t opt out of that!)

Pesky expenses like payment processing fees are deducted before you, or Learnable, or partners see any money.

 

And you are an Internet Marketer so here’s your second question…

Sure. Affiliate links are fine. Just make sure you tell your students whenever you include an affiliate link. For example:

“The sites I’ve linked to and recommended in this course are ones I believe offer real value. Some of these recommendations include affiliate links, which may generate revenue for me.”

Some users get a bit thingy about affiliate links. Tell them up-front, and you’re in the clear: if they don’t want to use an affiliate link, they can type the site’s URL into their browsers themselves.

:-D So check it out -> Learnable.com

Facebook, facebook groups, facebook group, how to set up a facebook group

 

Yes I said it … I love using Facebook groups in my business, and if you’re not using them yet, you should be after reading this post.

Recently I’ve been using facebook groups more and more!  Here are the top reasons why I am using facebook groups – and why you should consider using them in our business as well.

Right now I have groups for:

  1. My high end coaching and consulting students (closed group)
  2. The attendees of our workshops are in their own group – great for support and follow up! (closed group)
  3. New clients from speaking events (closed group)
  4. Business discussions with partners – I list these as “secret” and they are ideal for posting updates on projects, meeting minutes, and chatting about new ideas, next steps, etc. (secret group)

So what does facebook say about their ‘groups’ feature.. read below:

Create a private space
Have things you only want to share with a small group of people? Just create a group, add friends, and start sharing. Once you have your group, you can post updates, poll the group, chat with everyone at once, and more.
Share different things with different people
Groups let you share things with the people who will care about them most. By creating a group for each of the important parts of your life — family, teammates, coworkers — you decide who sees what you share.
Control who sees your group
Secret: Only members can see the group and what members post.
Closed: Everyone can see the group. Only members see posts.
Open (public): Everyone can see the group and what members posts.
Share with the group
  • Post updates, questions, photos, and more
  • Chat with the group
  • Create shared docs
  • Schedule group events

So, start your own facebook group by clicking the link below to get started: https://www.facebook.com/groups

Watch my quick video below to learn more about setting up your first group:

In 2003 I learned the art of outsourcing from my sister Lorette Lyttle, and I’ve been addicted ever since.  In today’s blog post you will learn where to find people to outsource to and to start building your team, how to outsource projects, and how to outsource small tasks.  So, lets get started!

BUILDING A TEAM

So a great place to find people to outsource your work to is in the Philippines.   There are two ways you can outsource to the Philippines.

Option #1: You can find someone to work for you by going to the “monster.com’ of the Philippines which is http://www.bestjobs.ph/

You can find some excellent people here – but a word of caution -> you will be hiring and managing these people yourself!  This can be extremely challenging if you have never outsourced before, if you are unfamiliar with the culture of the Philippines or are not sure on how to train your new team member – this option can be a bit challenging!  if you are good at outsourcing and good at managing your team – then this would be a good option for you to explore.

Option #2: You can use a company that you hire and manage your team through.  The most respected company doing this is: http://www.hire123employee.com Read their website.  Basically they manage and train your team member for you.  They give you the tools to monitor that person, there is a manager responsible for the activities of that person and they all report back to you!  You’ll feel more in control, there is a lot less hassle and stress when doing it this way, and you’ll get some experience in outsourcing and working with a team member.  I recommend this option to anyone new to outsourcing, but as you’ll notice on their webpage, large companies, small businesses and home based businesses use this company.

Tomorrow we will discuss how to outsource projects.

To your success,

Yes, today April 22nd is Earth Day!  Before I embraced Internet Entrepreneurship I was a professional ‘tree hugger!’ Really it’s true! I’ll post my complete bio here one day but I have my undergrad in Earth Sciences and in Environmental Studies and my Masters of Science in Environmental Health from Tulane University and I’m finishing up my PH.D. from the School of Natural Resources and Environment at the University of Michigan.

Anyway, today i am dedicating my Earth Day to a place i love dearly – Zimbali Retreats www.zimbalijamaica.com This place gets my dedication today as it’s a retreat that’s completely off grid.  That means that their electricity is solar powered, their hot water is heated by a solar hot water heater, their water is harvested and filtered rainwater, their drinking water is from a local spring…..amazing!

Most of their food is grown right at the retreat on their organic farm and is often cooked outside on a wood burning fire.

It’s an amazing place and getting back to nature has helped me to clear out negativity, balance my inner self, and focus on some inner healing.

I am truly grateful for this opportunity to address the balance in my own life.

I cannot speak highly enough about this place, the staff and the owners Mark & Alecia.

Now the only problem I had when I went to the retreat for the first time, was that I couldn’t turn off my marketing head… so of course I made the owners shoot some videos that i could upload to their channel!

So watch their new welcome video:

What did you think of the video?

So, if you are suffering from “nature-deficit disorder” – which so many of us computer geeks are, make plans today to find a place like Zimbali Retreats where you can get back to nature!

So tell me, what are you going to do to get back to nature?

My sister Lorette and I went into a sushi restaurant and noticed some nice sushi chopsticks boxes on the wall.

When we asked our server about the boxes he told us that the owner notices repeat clients and gives them one of these boxes with their names on it.  They get to see their name on the box, the explain to them how these chopsticks are special and how they hand wash them and that they will be placed on the wall until the next time they return.

Of course these repeat customers now feel special, they are acknowledged as “VIP’s” – and when they bring friends into the restaurant with them – they proudly tell the server they’d like their VIP chopsticks!

 

What are you doing to make your customers feel like VIPS?

What are you giving them to keep them coming back to you?

What are you giving them as a VIP so they bring their friends to you to brag about their VIP service with you!

Look for opportunities in your business to create VIP experiences!

Jamaica holds a special place in my heart. First my father is from Jamaica and we’ve been traveling to Jamaica since we were young. But only until the the last few years have I been looking at Jamaica through different eyes…

I took some time to not visit as a “tourist” but I spent some time learning more and getting to know the economy, the people and the opportunities – and it was disheartening with what I learned.

The biggest shock to me was that a college graduates average salary is $425 USD a month, yes, a month… that was not a typo.  A friend of mine works at a local grocery store and makes $50 a week, for full time work, that is $200 a month.

Keep in mind, the cost of living there is not that much different than the states. You would think that with such low salaries, it would be dirt cheap to live there, but its not, a lot of things cost just about the same.  yes you can rent rooms or live in tin homes for cheap… but.. it’s not necessarily a cheap place to live.  If they want to buy anything, they save their money for months if not years.

If you’ve ever been to one of the resorts there, the average resort worker makes about $350 a month. If you’ve been to one of the resorts, you’ve probably met the guys there that are selling tour excursions, they only make about $3 commission on each sale, with no base salary. Talk about pressure to just eat for the day! The top sales person makes about $300 a month.

I could go on forever with examples….

So, my sister and I decided that we wanted to do something about it. So, about 2 months ago we went to Jamaica and did a 2 day workshop teaching people who don’t even know how to copy and paste – to having a fully functioning website at the end of the second day.

I can’t tell you how rewarding and amazing that event was.

Well, I am back in Jamaica this weekend and doing follow up sessions with the group. We are hoping to get them started on the Internet with freelancing opportunities. They are a very skilled bunch, and the opportunities in Jamaica are just so limited.  we truly believe that if the people of that country are going to change their financial future, they will do it leveraging the power of the internet and a global economy!

It will be Internet Entrepreneurs that change the country.. you just wait and see…

Anyway, we will keep you posted and share with you some of the success stories!

We recently came back from an amazing event in Arizona hosted by GoDaddy!

Check out the cool picture below with myself, my sister and Bob Parsons – the “man” over at GoDaddy!

Alicia Lyttle, Lorette Lyttle & Bob Parsons at the GoDaddy resellers event!

This company just blew me away….

First, they have some much going on over there, they truly are innovative, fast moving and front runners of the domain registrar business. Oh.. and of course.. they are #1 !!

One thing about them that really, really impressed me was how fast they reacted when giving feedback.

For example, they had their SEO guy there and people were asking him lots of questions as he was walking around the group.  Then the Vice President ask us what do we think of the
speaker lineup and we suggested that the SEO guy should have done a presentation – he said ok great.

The next morning guess who was a speaker – the SEO guy!

It was funny, because he said “I was asked to speak this morning…so I am” LOL

We also had other suggestions, and within 2 months the suggestions were implemented.

The only thing they didn’t do is “toot their horn” enough.

In our industry, sorry to say, but there are lots of people out there who just don’t “deliver” but, all I can see is GoDaddy really delivered and over-delivered!

Now, the reason we were there is that we are domain resellers. Our account is called www.DomainDiving.com - so it is our account powered by the bid dog – Godaddy.com.

We have all the same services, all the same customer service, all the same technology and man power, but we’ve customized and tailored our offerings specifically for our clients.

We know what you need, we know what you want, we know what to deliver to you…so that’s what we are going to do!

But first, check out our blog – it is full of information on domains – bet you didn’t know there was so much to learn!

Domain Diving Blog – www.domaindiving.info

Happy learning – and I’ll be back with more to share on our trip hanging out with the GoDaddy crew.
