Yes it’s that time of year when we fly off to some far flung destination to expose our lily white bodies to too much sun, whilst eating and drinking too much…
…whilst constantly telling ourselves it is doing us the world of good!
The thing was, this year I had the best intentions of keeping in touch with my list whilst I was away.
I had it all planned.
In my head there would be a window of opportunity between the serious lying down by the pool in the day…
…and the putting on of the floral shirt for the evening’s fun and games.
All I needed to do was login to my autoresponder using the local wi-fi.
HOWEVER the reality was that the WI-FI was as dodgy as my rendition of ‘Sweet Caroline’ after several Sangrias.
So after a couple of half arsed attempts at getting something to them, I gave in and used the extra time to squeeze in a few more games of pool and table tennis with my son.
(This resulted in my son tonking me at pool, and me getting my own back in the ping pong – so honours even in the Waring household and therefore male egos intact).
But here’s the thing, with the wi-fi access I did have, I was getting mails through to my phone…
…and just every day I had a payment notification mail drop in to my inbox.
Nothing earth shattering, but all adding to the bank account with absolutely zero effort
(Yes there was effort to set things up in the first place, but once that was done, the money just consistently keep coming.)
The good news is that there is nothing I did that you can’t do.
So here are my tips to you, so that you can achieve this type of autopilot income:
- Make sure you have an autoresponder sequence set up that will automatically be sent to new subscribers as soon as they sign up. A true set and forget method. You can still get access to my AR Mail Genie membership if the idea of writing your own relationship building fills you full of dread:
- As soon as you can, get your own product(s) created and on offer – this is not just about bringing in sales, it is also about getting the on going traffic that affiliates offering your products bring in.
Your own products give you control, and some would say that you haven’t really got your own business until you have at least one product out there
The trouble is, most people believe this is a lot more difficult than it actually is.
So to prove how simple it can be to create a product, I created a WSO at the end of last year that covered how easy it could be to have your own product.
…and I did this in less than 4 days (conception, creation, sales funnel, launching the WSO).
Even though I created it a few months ago now, the content is as pertinent as it’s ever been and is still available for less than $7, you can check it out here: Product Creation Whirlwind
So there you go, my simple suggestions for making sure you can do bugger all for a fortnight and STILL have the payment notifications drop into your inbox.
OK, I’m now off to help get the umpteenth lot of washing in off the washing line– even holidays have their down side.
