This is about making videos about your limitations, about your beliefs, about your insecurities, and all that good stuff. Why sucking at something is vital to creating success.
I used to Be Self-Conscious about Making Videos
It’s something that I started about six months ago and I fought it and fought it for a long time. I did not want to get in front of the video camera.
I didn’t like the sound of my voice, didn’t like the way I looked, I don’t feel my voice projected enough. There’re all kinds of things.
My Mentor Gave Me Great Advice
I could give so many excuses of why I didn’t want to do videos. Excuses like, I didn’t know what to say. So I got in touch with my mentor and pretty much got a little kick in the butt.
What he told me was, “If you want success, you don’t have a choice. If you want to see success in your life, you don’t have a choice.
“There’s no, ‘I can’t do it, I’m tired,’ or, ‘I don’t like the way I look, I can’t do videos, I don’t have the equipment, I don’t have lighting, I don’t have the microphone, I don’t have something.’
“You just don’t have it—you can come up with a million excuses for why you won’t do your first video, why you don’t want to do a video now, but you’ve got to start somewhere, so you’ve just got to do it.
“You’ve just got to suck so good! You’re going to suck [at the start].”
My Videos are Improving
I still feel like my videos aren’t great. But in the beginning, sometimes I would script them or I’d have bullet points and just kind of go off… I tend to ramble (see, like I didn’t finish my sentence right there!).
I don’t even finish my thoughts, and sometimes I’ll cut off what I’m about to say, and then another thought will come, and I’ll just start talking about that. So you can witness that, and see I’m still messing up. 🙂
I Still Make Mistakes
I still mess up. I literally just use the camera from my MacBook. The only thing I bought was this microphone—this is the most expensive thing because my voice is not very loud.
When I talk at a normal level, my internal mic on my Mac is probably not going to hear me, so I had to buy a microphone.
I also got those ring lights, but it’s not even set up right. I have it so my monitor sits here, and it’s just leaning against my monitor.
I don’t even have it done right and I’m worried I’m going to drop this. You can see me fumble with it [in the video].
It’s Okay to Suck at First
Today’s topic was about it being okay if you’re going to suck at something at first. You’re going to get successful at it over time—you’ve got to practice at it and get past those limitations.
If you’re going to shoot videos… This was my thing: I didn’t want to do this. But as I got used to hearing the sound of my voice and talking as if nobody’s watching me…
Getting Better at Making Videos
Like right now, I’m just talking even though I know nobody’s here.
It feels silly and it feels uncomfortable, but after a while, when you start getting into it, when you start talking and pick a topic, you’ll tend to find the words come right out of you.
It’ll just come out of you from the heart. Be very transparent. I’m still working at it.
I have maybe 50 videos. I don’t even know how many videos I have on my channel right now! I guess I can look, but it doesn’t matter. I’m still just doing my videos like this.
Making Videos Organically
I’m trying not to script them, and I’m trying to really think about it, maybe make bullet points. I should do that because that’ll keep me from rambling.
Sometimes my videos are 15-20 minutes long, and it’s like, “What did I even say! Is it really worth it? This doesn’t have any value!”
I know a lot of you have insecurities about that, but just open up your laptop or get your phone and hold it horizontally, not vertically, and just talk!
Just say, “Hey, I’m so-and-so.” “Hey, my name is Toki. What did I learn today?” and just talk as if you’re talking to your friends. “This is what I’m learning in my business today.”
I did my first video on my phone. I’m recording for the first time, knowing this is going to be the first video that I’m shooting—this is great, I’m taking that step forward! I just moved past that limitation! I’m doing it!
Embrace Transparency Because People Love It
Once you’re done with your video, then upload it to YouTube, because people love that stuff. They love the transparency, they love the realness, they love the real me.
It’s okay because people love that realness that you have. They want to connect with you because they probably feel the same way right now, or they have the same fears and all that good stuff.
I’m just going to upload this video; I’m not even going to edit out all the fumbles and bumbles. If you want to be successful, you’re going to have to suck at stuff along the way.
Again, like me with videos. And yes, I’m also doing YouTube ads, and I suck at that too.
Investing in Yourself
I’m investing in myself to get the training to learn how to do that properly, to scale my business, because I don’t have time right now in the day.
So when you don’t have time, but you want to scale your business, you usually pay for it.
You’ve got to be resourceful and find that money somewhere. You’ve got to know what’s going to work and have people help you along the way. For me, I love YouTube, so I’m going to start and I’m never going to stop doing this.
I eventually will get better and better and better as time goes on.
It may take me longer, may take me a hundred videos before I can learn to just pop on here and then just talk about whatever I want to talk about, to pick the topic of teaching you guys something I learned, what I went through, any failures, any successes that I have.
The only way you’re going to get better with something is if you keep doing it, keep being persistent, and keep being consistent. Just doing it, even if it’s a 30-second video, lets you just do it every single day.
I’m going to do 30 days where I’m going to do a video every day, and then upload it to my YouTube channel. I’ll say this is day 1, day 2, and even if it’s like 20 seconds, 1 minute, 2 minutes, 3 minutes—I’ll just start talking about what I’m learning in my business.
Share What You Know
If you’re going through a course, it’s great to say, “This is what I learned for today.” Just upload that to YouTube like a blog. If you want to structure it, you can structure it.
Push Through Your Doubts
Do bullet points, whatever you want to do. Just get past it! Know that you’re going to suck at first, just like I did. But I still do it, and it’s okay. We’re all here. We’re all in this together. It’s all just a big journey, and it’s all going to be good.
The internet marketing industry is affiliate marketing.
It’s so overwhelming, there’s a lot of chaos, and there are a lot of things that can get you stuck, overwhelmed, or stressed.
So I made this video.
Bob Procter’s Mindset For Success
I’m about to introduce you to what’s called mindset for success.
He’s gonna introduce Bob Procter, which is where I started. From that point on, I think my whole world changed.
It really changes your life when you start to get into the mindset, get into your soul, get into your purpose, your why, and all that great stuff.
It’s really life-changing, and it gives you some clarity on your path to your journey to building your business online, and I really, really believe that a lot of people look over this, and it’s really where you need to set your foundation.
It’s really where you need to start when you’re about to build your business online.
I think this is probably the most important module, but it’s also the module that most people will discount.
I hope you’re not in that group of people.
A lot of people wonder why they don’t succeed, yet there’re tons and tons of information out there on the internet outlining exactly what to do and how to do it, how to become rich, and how to become abundant.
How to get rid of limiting beliefs.
How to make money with e-commerce, how to make money with affiliate marketing.
A lot of the information is out there, but the problem is the fact that people don’t have the right mindset as to how to take that information and turn it into physical form and make money from it.
The Mindset for Failure
I want to show you the mindset for success, what the actual mind looks like, and the same transformation that I went through—to go from thinking that I couldn’t do what I wanted in life, that I was predisposed to my parents’ beliefs, and that if I wasn’t born in a rich family that I wasn’t gonna be wealthy, and all these different limiting garbage beliefs that I had—how I went from that to completely understanding that my past doesn’t equal my future.
The Way to Success
I could write anything that I wanted to on the next page of my life, and that was quite liberating.
We’re gonna go through that.
I’m gonna show you that the road to success and the road to failure are almost exactly the same; you can get started in the wrong industry.
You can get started in something that is completely off the beaten path, but because you have the right mindset and because you have a mindset that has willpower attached to it, eventually, if you continue to seek out success, then you’ll eventually be led on the right path.
Some people are let on the right path from the get-go.
They find their passion, they know what they want to do, and they go out there and do it.
Other people spin their wheels and they really can’t find what they’re passionate about.
They’ve got to experiment with a lot of things, and through that experimentation, they develop the passion and then eventually go down the right path.
I hope this module serves you well. Let’s go ahead and let’s get into it! Here’s what we’re gonna cover in this specific module.
I’m going to cover two things specifically: What does the mind look like, and how does it actually work?
Then what is a paradigm, and how do we change paradigms?
A lot of people can see what the body looks like, the different parts of the body, but when you describe the mind most people just draw a blank, which leads them to a misunderstanding of themselves.
We’re gonna go deeper into paradigms and what these paradigms are and how they pretty much control you just like the software within a computer. Let’s go ahead and let’s get into it.
What does the mind actually look like?
Well, you’ve got two parts of the mind.
I went to a seminar on his back in May of 2015, and after going to that seminar my income just skyrocketed.
He helped me understand what the mind actually looks like, and what I’m gonna do beneath this video, because I don’t consider myself a personal development expert, I’m just sharing with you what I know.
Watch Bob Proctor’s Seminar for Yourself
I’m going to leave a link below that will take you to the same exact seminar that teaches a lot of this stuff in complete depth. I would watch this seminar 30 minutes a day every single day.
I think the seminar is about eight or nine hours, but every bit of it has so much depth and there’s so much of value and you’re gonna gain something new from it every time you watch it.
You’ve got the conscious mind and then you’ve got the subconscious mind.
The Conscious Mind
And depending on what’s going on in each of these two parts, the mind will control what the body is doing, so what the conscious mind does is it gives us the ability to reason.
This part up here gives us the ability to problem-solve when we’re first learning how to drive a car, and we’re consciously focusing on pressing on the brakes, pressing on the gas, looking in our rearview mirrors, looking around us, and making sure that there’s no oncoming traffic when we’re trying to change lanes and so on.
It gives us the ability to solve math problems so anything that we’re consciously focusing on that’s problem-solving takes place in and is controlled by the conscious mind.
The Subconscious Mind
Then you have the subconscious mind, which is our programming.
It’s our habits that were installed into us over time, the beliefs that our friends gave us about ourselves, the beliefs that our teachers gave us about ourselves, the beliefs that our parents gave us about ourselves, and the beliefs that our ancestors gave our parents then gave us about ourselves.
A lot of what’s going on in your life right now is due to what’s going on in the subconscious mind.
A lot of what’s going on you can’t even recognize, so even if you went to try and change something about yourself, it’s very difficult to do, because you’ve got these years and years and years of programming.
For example, it’s a lot easier to reprogram somebody that’s 10 years old versus somebody that’s 30 years old, or somebody that’s 20 years old versus somebody that’s 40 years old. So what’s going on in each of these parts of the mind is going to dictate what happens to the body.
The Subconscious Fights with the Conscious Mind, Causing Distress
If the conscious mind and the subconscious mind aren’t congruent in thinking, then what happens is anxiety takes place, fear takes place, stress takes place.
The way that I like to look at it is like a mathematical formula.
If you have an X-type subconscious, but you have a Y-type idea that you’re trying to press upon yourself–maybe it’s this new belief about wealth, and maybe your subconscious mind is saying…
“You know what? Money is hard to come by. My parents barely scrape by for money. The only way to make money is through hard work and honesty alone.”
Then you’ve got this new internet business that you’re trying to build, and the conscious mind is essentially saying, “Hey, there’s this new idea! I can do this thing called affiliate marketing. I can make 100% commissions. I can work no more than two hours a day. I can make money while I sleep.”
When that idea is trying to press upon the subconscious mind that has completely opposite beliefs, that’s where a lot of the stress and anxiety and the I-can’t-do-this fear takes place.
Then it results in the expressions shown in the body and the actions that take place as a result of what’s going on in the subconscious mind.
So happiness, sadness, fear, anxiety, depression, disease, and decay.
“We Don’t Die. We Kill Ourselves.”
One of my mentors, I can’t remember exactly who, but Bob Proctor actually quoted this, he said that we don’t die, we kill ourselves. And that’s so true.
The times of my life where I’m dealing with brain fog, I’m dealing with stomach problems, I’m—you know. I get sick.
It’s typically a result of stress, and that just goes to show you that if you can understand exactly what’s going on in your mind, and you can actually have the ability to recognize that and change it, then when you run into situations like this, you can almost release yourself from the problem and know exactly what you need to do to find that solution.
Here’s another perfect example:
You’ve got the conscious mind up here, this is book knowledge, ability to repeat information, and then you have the subconscious mind, which is your paradigms that we’re going to talk about in just a second, your programming and your genetic and environmental predispositions.
So again, where you grew up, the beliefs that your family, your friends, co-workers, neighbors, teachers gave you, and then you have the body, the actions and results controlled by what’s going on right here at the end of the day.
If you want to change your results, you’ve got to change yourself.
You’ve got to change your identity.
You’ve got to change your paradigm.
You’ve got to change what’s going on, what you’re consciously thinking about.
What is a Paradigm?
Let’s go ahead and let’s talk about what a paradigm actually is.
A paradigm is a multitude of habits that are fixed in the subconscious mind.
As I said, it’s essentially your programming.
This image right here depicts it really well: You’ve got your self-image.
You’ve got things like money, how much money you make, what your bank account looks like, your weight, how physically fit you are, things like success, confidence, relationships, do you have a girlfriend, wife, husband, or boyfriend, and if you don’t, how do you look at yourself as a result of that?
How I Changed My Paradigms
What I began doing to change part of my paradigm was understanding that the results up to this point in my life, whatever point that was, it was a result of my current level of thinking.
It was a result of what I had done up to that point. It wasn’t who I was; it was just my results. That’s it.
Then I started thinking that a lot of these different factors, like my weight, money, success, confidence, and relationships weren’t just me.
It wasn’t me. It wasn’t my identity.
It just resulted from the actions I was taking.
I was able to rewrite the next page of my life, and realize that, “Wow, this is so cool! My story of yesterday doesn’t have to be my story today.”
But as they say, doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity.
So what I began doing is, I started reading books that proved my thought that, “Oh my gosh, I can rewrite my future!”
Yesterday does not need to be like today.
I started reading all these autobiographies of different people like Thomas Edison, Albert Einstein, presidents of the United States. Just thought leaders, Gandhi, thought leaders around the world.
And a lot of them came from backgrounds where they were poor, they didn’t have a lot of money, they didn’t have a lot of resources.
And they failed many, many times, but there was a point where they had a breakthrough and the way that they had that breakthrough is changing their self-image, realizing that once again, what they were doing in the past environment that they were a part of does not need to dictate what’s going to happen in the future.
We’ll go ahead and talk a little bit more about how to change your paradigms here in just a second, but I want to show you exactly how a paradigm has actually developed so that you’re aware of it, and so you can finally—hopefully—relieve yourself from thinking that your identity is not even your identity or that your identity was created from your parents and from other people.
How the Subconscience Develops
This is a perfect example.
When you’re an infant you don’t even have a subconscious mind.
You have no programming because no information has gone through your mind.
The way that you develop that is through your family, your parents most importantly.
They always do the best that they can, but sometimes you don’t turn out the way that you had hoped.
You’ve got a radio, TV advertisements, and billboards.
You’ve got TV and newspapers, and if you have friends, then you’ve got enemies.
You’ve got things that you choose, like music that you listen to. You’ve got random strangers who you might listen to.
And as you listen to these things repetitively over time, you eventually form your subconscious.
And then your subconscious, as we explained, shows through within the body, whether it be stress-, anxiety-, or fear-driven actions that you take.
Change the People You Know to Change Your Paradigms
If you’re in a place where you’re in an environment that’s not conducive to your progression in your life and in your business, just look at the people around you.
The best way to see somebody’s result is to look at the people that they hang out with.
It’s so true when they say that your income is in direct proportion to the five closest people that you hang out with.
So if you truly want to change your current position, all you need to really change is your environment.
Change the people that you’re around, and if you can’t change the people that you’re around, you need to get indirect and even direct mentors.
This is how we change our paradigm, and this is a perfect illustration of what goes on.
If you look at your results right now and they’re not what you want them to be, what actions are you taking every single day?
Control Your Listening Time to Change Your Paradigms
What are you listening to? Are you listening to garbage?
Are you listening to things that aren’t conducive to your goals?
If you’re waking up every day and you’re just listening to a bunch of music that has no meaning to it or that doesn’t help you get to where you want to go, doesn’t help you change limiting beliefs that you have, then it can be considered garbage.
Go write down what type of garbage that you’re listening to, whether it be from your friends, your family, your co-workers, or people that you’re around, and then on the other side of the paper just draw a straight line.
Write Down What You Hear and Listen to Daily
I want you to write down things that you are listening to on a daily basis that is conducive to your success.
And if things on the left-hand side, the garbage, is outweighing the things on the right-hand side, the things that really help you get towards your goals faster, then that’s your problem right there.
Just change what you listen to and you’re going to change your results, but it’s not always about what you’re listening to.
It’s about what you’re thinking as a result of what you’re listening to.
No One Becomes a Genius without Help
Go back and look at all the successful people in history.
A lot of times you think Mozart and Albert Einstein, they just came out of the womb and they were geniuses.
You don’t realize the mentors that they had.
If they’re getting garbage mentors coming in, then they’re gonna have garbage coming out.
If you’re listening to mentors that have a bunch of garbage and are fakers, then you know you’re going to become a whole lot like them.
But if you’re listening to people you know…
For example, you look at Albert Einstein and look at the other mathematicians that came before him that he listened to.
I’m not gonna mention any names. I can’t remember specifically.
But you can go back and you can do the research and you can see who the mentors were of a lot of these famous people.
You Develop on Paths People Lay Out for You
The idea is that every day you listen to the right people, you’re gonna start to develop the same results as the people that came before you.
Eventually, you’ll even reach beyond them and get results that outweigh whatever they’ve been able to do in their lives.
Some Tips to Change Your Mindset
Here are some steps to change your paradigm and make 90% of your activities, whether it’s listening, watching, reading, or associating with mentors and entrepreneurs that are on the same path as you.
Whether it’s going to meetups, hanging out in forums and groups, or Facebook groups of people that think as you do, it’s going to be 90% of your success.
Turn Off the TV
Shut off the TV. This includes news and shows that don’t further your education and help you reach your goals.
Now I’m not saying to completely shut off the TV. In the beginning, I would probably suggest that you do that; that’s exactly what I did.
The most crucial part of your success is always the beginning stages, and it’s gonna be the hardest part because you have a lot of paradigms that you need to change, a lot of habits that you need to change, and sometimes that can take time to do.
Listen to Motivational Speakers
I would recommend that a hundred percent of your free time be spent on listening to audios, reading books, and watching motivational YouTube videos.
One of the things that I used to do all the time is, I would go to work, and when I worked in the jewelry store we would open the store every single day and put all the jewelry in the cases, take all the jewelry out of the vault, and during this time I would plug in my headphones and listen to that Bob Proctor seminar that I was talking about earlier.
Once I realized that it was okay, I decided to spend 90% of the time listening to people like that.
I listened to people I want to listen to and that I need to listen to, people that are gonna help me reach my goals.
We’ll spend the rest of the time—10 % of the time—listening to my co-workers or even your family members.
Your Family Might Not Like What You’re Doing
A lot of your family members are not going to believe in what you’re doing.
They’re gonna think that it’s outside the box. They’re gonna think that it’s different, but you have to look at the statistics.
Those are the reasons why 2% of people in the world make about 96% to 97% of the money.
Somebody coming to you who’s in the 96% or 98% of people that don’t think like the 2% is obviously gonna think that you’re deranged.
They’re gonna think that you’re weird because you’re doing something completely different than everybody else.
You’re doing what the 2% is doing instead of what the 98% are doing.
Lose Your Friends if They Don’t Support You
It’s important that you shut off anything that’s going to keep you from your goals.
I don’t care if it’s your friends.
You’re gonna have to choose to hang out less with friends that don’t support you and your goals.
I can tell you that over time, though I had a lot of friends in high school, there’s only a small, select few that I still hang out with today.
And the friends that I have today are other entrepreneurs or other people that are in the online marketing space.
You’re gonna notice that as your income changes, your friends are gonna change and your environment’s going to change. You want to stay away from people that don’t support your goals.
Write out a Goal Card
Most importantly, write out a goal card. Write out your goals on a goal card. Sometimes this works incredibly well for people.
I did more visualization techniques, but that might work a little bit better for you.
I was hungry. You need to have a strong why.
This is probably one of the most important things that you need to know with this module; you need to have a why.
Find Your Why: Know Your Pain Point
Why are you doing this? And if it’s just for money, I’m sorry to say, but in about two weeks you’re probably gonna quit this program.
You’re probably gonna go look for the next shiny object and jump on something else.
For me, the pain of working at my job was greater than the pain and insecurity of the unknown of building an online business.
Because my pain was so high and my why was so high—which for me, it was just quitting my job.
For some of you that might not be deep enough.
You’ll Do Things You Thought Were Impossible
How great is the pain? Is a pain larger than trying to go for your dreams? What it is you do? Whatever it takes!
I started shooting videos; I’d never been on video before I started doing things that I never thought in a million years that I would do.
I went and spoke on stages, and that frightened me. I remember getting panic attacks.
I would go the whole day without eating before getting on stage, but stepping out of my comfort zone has allowed me to grow.
It allowed me to become somebody that I never thought that I would become.
It’s allowed me to become a better communicator; it’s allowed me to impact more people.
Progress is Just Outside Your Comfort Zone
You have to realize that being able to change lives is just right outside of your comfort zone, and somebody needs and wants to hear your voice.
Keep Your Goals with You
I want to inspire you to write out your why. Write out your goals and your why on a goal card.
Carry it around in your pocket, laminate that card, look at it every single day, and remind yourself what your goals are and why you’re doing this.
Because it could be so easy to fall off. It’s as easy as it is to focus.
Every single day I like to rewrite out my goals, and you need to also.
I like to plan out my day.
We’re going to get into my daily method of operation here in the next module, but it’s important that you cover these things.
That you have your why, that you write your goals on a goal card, and that you look at these goals every single day.
Here’s an example of some students, I told them to write down two different goals, two different milestones over the year that they wanted to reach.
And you can see the top right-hand corner is June 11th, 2019.
I’ve made $5,000 in one month in my affiliate marketing business, and then by September 11th, I had my first $10,000 dollars in one month with my affiliate marketing business.
I’m so happy and grateful now that I make $5,000 a month online. Having these types of incantations which are these things that you tell yourself every day does wonder.
If You Lie to Yourself Enough, You’ll Start to Believe the Lie
One of the other things that I learned is when you tell yourself a lie long enough and persistently enough, consistently enough, you actually start to believe it.
And that’s what happened to me.
I remember it was about June 2014, right before I quit my job in October.
I woke up one day and I was like, “Holy crap! I believe in myself. I can do this!” and it took a little while to get to that point, because I had to eliminate a lot of these limiting beliefs that I had, but it was like this liberation and this weight lifted off of my shoulders, and it changed my life.
It changed the game. It changed my future.
Just by reading and listening to the same thing over and over again, even if I didn’t believe it initially, listening to it so much while suspending disbelief got me to the point where I believed it.
Ideas Need Time to Take Root and Sprout
I’m blessed. I gave this a chance.
Sometimes you plant a seed and you have to water it consistently over time.
The soil has to be right, the environment has to be right for that seed to grow into a beautiful, strong, green plant and continue to grow just like the thoughts that go into your mind.
You know a mental seed is just as important as a physical seed.
Just like a baby takes nine months to be born, it takes a plant a few months to grow, depending on the plant of course.
It’s the same thing with your ideas.
The universe has a gestation period for your ideas.
It could be that you plant that idea today, and it could be six months.
It could be three months or it could be two months.
One of my mentors, Tony Robbins, said that we overestimate what we can do in six months, and we underestimate what we can do in three to five years, and that’s so true.
I put it this way.
Would you rather me give you $1,000 today or would you like $50,000 in one year?
Because of the compounding effect at work, what you do today as an entrepreneur is going to make a difference a year from now, so a lot of people get in this mindset of instant gratification, trading time for money.
That’s not what you’re doing here. The goodwill you know as you plant that seed and water that seed every single day…
Yeah, you might not see that the seed is grown into a plant right off the bat, but then all of a sudden you’ll wake up one day and you’ll go outside and be like, “Wow. This seed just popped up.
I wasn’t seeing anything yesterday, but now I see this plant just completely starting to grow.”
Businesses Grow the Same Way
It’s going to be like that within your business.
You’re gonna go for a few months and you might not have success.
Then, all a sudden, boom! You have a $3,500 a month business.
And then you jump up to $10,000, but you need to be patient to get to that point.
Then if you dedicate yourself to doing this every single day, because this is the most important part.
When you don’t have a foundation for a house, you can’t try and build your business.
When you don’t have a strong mindset and you go out there and you’re trying to implement these things I’m going to teach you in this course, you’re not gonna have the belief in yourself to go out there and do it.
That’s why there’s tons of great information out there and you wonder why people fail. It’s because of the mindset. It’s because of the things that we talked about here.
I’m reviewing this particular program, Legendary Marketer. I came across this a couple of years ago, and I wasn’t really open to it back then. I didn’t agree back then with some of the things they were doing, but now they seem to have changed things up.
I wanted to take another look.
You probably a ton of searches for reviews on this program, and there are gonna be good ones and there are gonna be bad ones. On the good ones, you know you’re gonna see comments, and on the negative reviews, some are positive and some are negative, and vice-versa.
I’ll get into that a little bit later, but I came back to this particular program because I had someone that I knew, that I respected, that was promoting it.
And I was like, well, you know… and I really was looking for a lower front end offer to offer people that were brand new and didn’t really know what this was about. They had no experience or anything like that, so I wanted something that was set up, was polished, that focused on the basics.
It had mindset included, had the affiliate model, because that’s what I like to do, I love affiliate marketing.
I wanted it to be very user-friendly in the way of understanding this.
For the people that are new to this affiliate model, it can be super overwhelming, and there’s so much information out there, and everybody has their own ways of doing things.
They have their own opinions, they have their own structures, their own processes, you name it. Everyone out there is really overwhelming, so I wanted something that was getting back to the basics.
I wanted it to also include—I think I said this already—getting your mind right and building a foundation for people that are super new. That’s what I was looking for, just a really low-cost friend, an offer that would cover that in a structured way.
That’s what I was looking for, so this type of review is about that.
I’m doing it in a way that’s a little unorthodox because there’s no link for it in the description. Instead of relying on these very typical and almost structured reviews that are out there, I went ahead and bought the course.
I bought that and I also got the Marketer’s Club upgrade. Let me show it to you. The 15-day challenge this says is seven dollars to get started. The Legendary Marketer’s Club is what I also got into.
I did not purchase the Traffic Rolodex, but I’ll get into all this kind of stuff later. I want to guide you through the process I went through, and why I chose this one for my front end offer.
You’re not gonna find an affiliate link down below in the description, because I want to be able to say what I want and say how I feel, good, bad, or indifferent about the program without saying, “Get the link down below and buy the program!”
I don’t want to do that, so you’re not gonna find a link for it. But I want to offer an unorthodox type review for Legendary Marketer.
With all the reviews out there, it’s either the program is super awesome and they have the affiliate link, as I said before, in the description.
Or you would see a strategy where the reviewer’s saying not-so-great things about the program, but then offer, in the description below, their own video.
Whatever program they’re promoting, it’s, “Hey you! Don’t get this, get this instead, because it’s better!”
Those are typical, and you’re not really getting a feel for it, they’re not giving you anything really honest that they would say, because they’re not really buying into it, they’re not going through the actual product and telling you their process and how it is.
Who do you believe when you’re watching those types of reviews?
You know who the people are behind it, but how good is the education? I wanted to know about Legendary Marketer, so that’s why I bought into it myself. I wanted to see it.
Does it have a community? Because that’s a make-it-or-break-it for me with any program.
Does it have a supportive community?
Is it active?
Is it inspiring?
Does it motivate you?
Are the people in there having success, whether it’s monetary or spiritual?
Do they have a lot of heart in their community? That’s super important to me, especially when I want to tell somebody about this.
I want to be able to feel proud to offer it to somebody, feel good about the content that’s in there within the system on the program.
Now I’m just gonna look over here on the other screen, and just show you, go through it with you really quickly.
You’re gonna have assignments, and you’re gonna have to schedule a one-on-one with their coach. They talked about the wake-up call, so this is very important.
Here, this is community-based. This is something I really, really liked about the program initially, because it’s something every day for you, to inspire you, to get you motivated for the day. I really, really like that wake-up legendary calls.
I thought that was awesome.
That’s day 1.
Day 2: he’s gonna go into the core for this type of business model set.
They focus on high leverage, high ticket. You have affiliate marketing digital selling, your digital products and services coaching and consulting, and events and mastermind. He’ll get into that with you there.
Day 3: is going to talk about how to actually build your business using a funnel system. There’s somebody that’s going to go through it with you, step by step. That’s what you’re going to have here.
It shows you they’re using ClickFunnels to build these bridge pages and/or their landing pages for you, or you can do it a free way. I think somewhere in there, there’s a way to do this for free, without spending that much money for ClickFunnels.
You can probably use like WordPress site and a page builder for that if you wanted to do that over here.
This is probably my favorite day, mastering your inner game of wealth.
He really gets into mindset here.
This is probably my favorite part of the entire challenge, is getting this right first, before you even move on to anything else, any strategies, any tips, any and anything else.
I really believe that this is probably where most people fall out, and why they don’t see success, is because they don’t have this part right here.
He talks about the right way here, so day 5 of developing your business plan.
Day 6, now I don’t remember which day looked like you weren’t allowed to move forward, but this is just getting into the coaching call, or scheduling your call with your coach. Let me see, schedule call, a business plan, okay.
You need to actually schedule to talk some to someone, which I did. I did do that.
I talked to this coach, and it was very pleasant for me.
I know a lot of people are having issues where their coaches were rude or they weren’t really helpful or they were really pushy, trying to sell them things.
That didn’t happen for me, because I was very upfront with the coach, the advisor.
I said, “Look, I just want this. This is what I want to do. I want to offer this as a front end offer for my people, people I’m connecting with, and I really just want to be an affiliate for it.” And he was like, “Great.”
He didn’t try to sell me on anything, he unlocked all my days for me because they’re the ones responsible for unlocking the days for you.
He went ahead and unlocked all my days, and then he gave me some steps and I answered some questions that he did have for me.
That’s how you can just move through.
That’s how my experience with the coaching advisor was. I was pleasantly surprised that it went fine for me, and I wasn’t being pitched or sold to or anything like that. I was very helpful, so I don’t remember what day we left on.
Day 7, when should you quit your job?
And let’s just say day 8 is gonna talk about high-income skills.
The whole purpose of building your online business is acquiring these skill sets and building these skills that you need to have your online business.
So this particular day, he’s going to talk about and go through lead generation. Why? This skill set is probably the number one thing because we all obviously need traffic and leads. What day am I on? Nine.
10, copywriting. Super important as well.
Telling stories in your ad copy for day 11.
We have a high-income skill number three, sales and present, where you can actually ask questions here or just say your biggest challenge, and they’ll try to help you out if you’re in that step in your business or that level in your business.
Day 12, what to outsource.
She talks about what to outsource, using other people’s money to build your business. This was a big one for me too because it teaches you how to be resourceful with your resources.
I’ll link to an article that I wrote for this because I actually had an experience with this myself, but here he’s just talking about how to become creative and finding money to invest in yourself and build your business. That’s basically what he’s going to talk about here.
Now we have day14, how to avoid mantrapreneur syndrome. Basically, he’s gonna go over setting goals and sticking to them. Being on point with your goal setting, and not just treating this as a hobby, but as a real business.
Giving you deadlines; that’s really important.
If you guys haven’t read this book Rich Dad, Poor Dad, I highly recommend you read that book, or if you have Audible, listen to it if you have a day job and you want, because that’s what I do.
I listen to books while I’m at work when I can, but that’s what I do.
If you can really listen to that or read that book, it’s a really great foundational type thing. It goes along with the mindset and defeat
Day 15 is kind of the end. You made it, you’ve been through the challenge, you’ve been through everything, and you should have your business set up, and all that great stuff.
I really thought a lot of the content here was really great, really well structured, and it really flowed nicely. I think it’d be great for beginners to go through it, and even if you’re a seasoned marketer, it’s great for the refresher as well.
Also, the products they have, they have the business blueprints, the digital marketing where you fill up marketing events, and the coaching they have, the live training is the marketer’s club.
The marketer’s club has really great interviews.
There’s a ton of content in here.
Somebody mentioned that it was like Netflix for internet marketing or online marketing.
It really is. It has really good content. This one was really, really good to watch. It gases anything you could want.
I went through that, and there’s another one where you were born rich but made poor.
That one was really eye-opening as well. There’s a lot of content that’s legit. They’re not pushing you to sell Legendary Marketer with the education they have here. They’re teaching you how to build skillsets to promote anything you want.
They’re giving you an assistant educational platform now. It probably wasn’t like this before, which is probably why I shied away from it, because back then you got into it, and they taught you how to promote Legendary Marketer.
But now, it’s like the company seems to have changed, and now they’re more about an educational platform teaching you skill sets to promote and build any type of business and any type of niche or industry, which is great.
You’ve got to just imagine how much content is here.
Let’s see, the Traffic Rolodex Bundle. Well, it’s 24/7, obviously.
So what’s in there, I’m guessing, is I think they have content for Facebook ads, YouTube ads, Instagram ads. There’s a plethora of content on how to market using those platforms, and I think that’s in the Traffic Rolodex.
I don’t know. I can’t really speak on it, because I didn’t buy that.
The affiliate part, let me go into that really quickly.
To be an affiliate you do have to fill out an application, and you’re usually approved within a few days, depending on if how you answer the questions in the application.
There are two options when you do become an affiliate, there’s a basic option, and then there’s a pro option, where it’s $30 a month. I chose that option, because I wanted to get the custom funnels.
I wanted to get the streams of income that’s added, so if somebody comes into the program at the $7 level, and they do sign up for ClickFunnels, you’ll get a commission for that. So that was nice.
And I think they had built her it all in there.
Your autoresponder is also linked as an income stream for you, and also another big thing that I really liked was you don’t have to buy all those high ticket products in order to earn a commission for them.
That’s my opinion on Legendary Marketer; this is my off-the-cuff review.
I just wanted to show you why I bought it, why I bought into it, what I thought about the content and the structure and the flow and the community.
I really like it. I really loved it, and I feel proud to offer it to people who are new, and not ready to make those high ticket purchases, because they really don’t know what’s going on, and they really don’t have their mind in the right place yet.
I think this offers a great way to start and build that foundation, and really wrap their head around the entire thing as a whole. Then they can pick their path along the way.
Now I just want to hit on this, because I see when people shoot their income claims, and what they made with the company—that’s cool, but that’s not something I like to do, because it might be a little bit intimidating to people if they’re seeing people like, “Yeah, I made my first thousand dollars in the first two months,” and then someone gets in, and it doesn’t happen for them.
That could lead to a little bit of a disconnect with the company and might make them feel shame. You don’t really want that, so that’s why I don’t really do that.
But you get those questions like, “How quickly can I make money with this?” and this goes for any business, not just Legendary Marketer, but it’s like…
How much money can I make with legendary marketer?
Or who is making money with the legendary marker?
Or how much can I make with it? Let me rephrase that.
How fast can I make money with Legendary Marketer?
To be blunt, I would say Legendary Marketer isn’t gonna make you anything. You’re gonna make nothing with Legendary Marketer, okay?
Bear with me. Let me explain this.
As far as systems go out there, the education and the material in any course is not gonna make you money. What’s gonna make you money and help you build your business is what you do with the information in the program, right?
It’s what you do with it. It’s not like you just having Legendary Marketer or any other course—you having it in your graphs, you purchase it, you buy it–that’s not going to make you money.
It’s what you do with them, with that information.
You understand it, you implement it, and you did or didn’t take action on it.
That’s what’s gonna make you money with whatever company.
You’re not in just this particular run, so you’re just setting yourself up for failure if that’s where your mind is at. Asking those questions just tells me where your mind is at.
Eradicate that. Let’s say to yourself, How am I gonna make money with Legendary Marketer?
Let me dive into the content, let me understand it, let me work it out, and then let me take action on it.
That’s how you’re gonna make money, not just this little package in and of itself. You need to step back and reevaluate your thoughts about online business. It’s really mindset shift here to succeed with anything.
That’s why I really enjoyed day four on the challenge because that’s what he really digs into.
And that’s it. Guys, that’s my whole experience with Legendary Marketer. I really enjoy the program as of right now.
I’m still kind of going through that traffic Bootcamp, and this is part of one of the videos I need to make, which is awesome.
I hope this helped you, gave you some little bit of insight.
If you guys have any questions or anything like that, just leave me a comment below, connect with me. I’ll leave a link to my Facebook page. You can message me from there, but I’m not linking to it.
I wanted to be able to say what I wanted to say, and I really think it’s a great program for new people to get into. I’m really enjoying it so far, as well as the people I’m connecting with that are new.
How to Get Facebook Likes and Build Page Authority
Here’s how to get Facebook page likes to your page to show more authority. I’m going to show you a paid way, and I’m going to show you a free way that’s going to take a little bit longer, but you’re going to build more genuine connections this way.
Facebook Ads Method
Start off by opening your Facebook Ads manager. Obviously, before you do this, you have to have a Facebook page set up already, and an Ads account. So if you don’t have one, pause the video and go create one.
Here you’re in your campaign level. There’re three tiers. You have your campaigns, you have your ad sets, and then your ads. This is your campaign level, your ads, and your ad set level is basically your audience level.
I already did one for myself, and I stopped it a while ago. I was getting about 2 cents per like back then.
Creating Your Campaign
You just go to the green Create button here. In your campaign page, there are three tiers—you have your campaigns, you have your ad sets, and then your ads. Again, your audience is your ad sets.
Create a campaign name. You can just name it “test”, so you know the test page is liked okay.
Choosing Your Settings
When you set your objective, you want to tell Facebook what you’re doing. What you’re going for here is only page likes. Campaign name, you can just put “test,” so you know it’s a test page.
Here on your Campaign Objective change it to Page Likes. Here, when you set your objective, you want to tell Facebook what you’re actually doing and actually going for. Here you’re going simply for page likes.
Set Your Budget and Campaign Name
Come down here. As far as your budget’s concerned, you can set that down here. I was going at $5 a day. You can do $10 a day or whatever your budget is.
Here, as your asset name, you’re going to put ‘Page Likes Worldwide’—I’ll show you that in a minute. And here your name is Page Likes. Then you save it to drafts, so it’s not posting anything yet.
Your Campaign Page
We’re going to hit save to draft so it’s not posting anything yet, it’s just saving it to draft. We’re here at your campaign level. This is just showing you what you already set up. You’ve got your campaign name, you’ve got your page likes as the objective, and then you have your budget.
Choosing Your Audience
I’m gonna go over here into the ad set level, which is where we are going to set our audience. We’ve got page likes and your identity. Here you’re gonna select your page that you want to promote.
For me, this is my Facebook page, which is right here. I would select that. I’m gonna leave the time alone for right now, and just let it run.
Selecting a Worldwide Audience
Okay, I’m not creating this custom audience, and this one here is where you’re gonna deselect this, and you’re gonna type in this box, “Worldwide.” This is gonna go out and tell Facebook to let everybody know about your page. You just go ahead.
If you wanted to add more regions, you could, but again, your costs are just going to go up, and here the purpose is just to build authority for your page at a lower cost.
If you want to put the United States again, your cost per like is going to go up a lot.
For the ages, I like to keep it wide open, with 18-65. Again, if you want to change it to all women or all men, depending on what your Facebook page is about, you can do that too.
Next, we’re going into the targeting. Depending on what your page is about, it could be in health and fitness, it could be about anything.
For me, mine’s entrepreneurship, so let’s go ahead and type that in here as an interest. That’s quite a few people.
If you wanted to dig a little bit deeper, you could hit suggestions, and if you’re targeting just females and put in a female entrepreneur, self-employed, anything to get this number up as high as you possibly can.
Otherwise, we’re going to keep going down here. I’m gonna leave all this alone, the optimization and everything is right from here. I’m not gonna hit publish, but I’m gonna go into my actual ad area.
Select the Page You’re Promoting
Here’s when you can select your Facebook page that you’re gonna use. Title your ad name, and this is where you want to set up your ad.
Choose an Image
You can select an image, and this is the recommended size for your image, so it’s going to be an image over here, and then on the top, it’s going to have your ad text.
Let’s go ahead and select that image, and let’s just see. I think this is one I used; we’ll just use this again to show you what it looks like. Here’s my image. Of course, pick one that’s related to your niche.
Come down here, and you’re going to put in the text which I haven’t already set up. This one fits nicely on two lines; it’s even better if you can do it in one line. And that’s pretty much it.
Remember, We’re Building Authority Cheaply
It’s simple. You don’t have to overcomplicate this. The purpose is just to build authority to your Facebook page.
By going this, you’re gonna get the lowest cost possible targeting worldwide, setting up a simple image related to your page, and simple text copy to get people that are interested in entrepreneurship to click the like button.
You’re targeting people all over the world, and it’s a great way to build authority. That’s it for that!
It’s super simple to set up. You hit publish, you wait for Facebook to review it, and then it’ll just start running. Then you’ll start to see page likes coming to your Facebook fan page.
The Free Way to Build Authority
Now, the free way to do this, which is what I’ve started to do, is you can go into your niche or industry and go to where all the leaders and influencers go to their pages.
Obviously, for this one too, you have to have a Facebook page set up already.
Follow Industry Influencers Closely
You would go here, and to these people, these leaders’ and these influencers’ pages, and set it to where you can see their posts first on your Facebook newsfeed.
At that point, let me show you what that looks like. So if I go to Lois House’s Facebook page, you hit the like button, and you go to where it says following.
You look in the dropdown menu, and what you do is hit “see first” in your newsfeed.
Leave Intelligent Comments on Their Posts
When he drops a new post or when any of these leaders or influencers in your industry or niche drop a post, you’ll see them first in your newsfeed, and you’re able at this point to leave an educated, intelligent, really thought out comment on their posts.
What that’s gonna do is, one, make the tension of your leader or influencer lighter.
But when you leave these comments, don’t leave them in your personal Facebook page. Like this one is my personal page with my daughters on it.
If I’m gonna leave a comment on this post, I’ll say I watched it, thought about it, and was inspired by it to leave a comment on it about something related to me.
Changing Your Commenting Facebook Page
You go into this little section where you see my girls’ picture. I’m gonna click that and then click on my Facebook page as the person commenting, instead of my personal Facebook page.
Here you leave your comment and hit enter. Now it’ll post as your Facebook page so that people visit your page when they see it.
Enjoy the Community
That’s a great way to build connections through Facebook and see what other people are up to. You might want to share your business and just swap ideas, and it’s a genuinely great way to share ideas with people on the same wavelength, liking the same leaders and influencers and things.
It’s a great, free way, but it does take a little bit more time.
Commenting on Your Phone
If you want to do this on your phone, you can’t do it through the Facebook app. It doesn’t give you an option to change who’s leaving the comment from your personal page to anything else.
But you can go to Facebook in your browser on your phone and change it that way.
How Many Comments to Post
With this strategy, I would recommend five posts a day, depending on how many leaders or influencers you’re following.
I would do it three to five times a day, and just give some thought out comments. Don’t just say, “Hey, great post!” or “Fire! Great job!” Have something inspiring to say, something intelligent to say.
Remember the Two Ways to Gain Authority
That’s it for today. It’s really quick to use two great ways to get likes to your Facebook fan page or page.
Again, there’s a paid way, setting web pages like a campaign. And there’s this free way of following leaders and influencers in your industry. Make sure you follow them, click the “see first” button so you see it first in your newsfeed.
Then go into your phone or on your desktop, change the commenting role to your Facebook page versus your personal page, and leave a comment with that.
