Struggling to sell your info products?
One of the biggest reasons why many solopreneurs don't sell enough is because they hit a wall. They think that it's hard to sell (or that their products are not good enough). Many creators give up. The wall feels overwhelming. But the wall is not made of concrete.
You can break the wall (If you know how).
Because the wall is made up of exactly what we discussed in t...
Why do clients NOT buy?
Clients, like all humans, are predictably irrational. That's something we know, thanks to Dan Ariely. But why do we chase them away? Well, chasing clients away sounds more irrational than them not buying. But why will business owners chase away clients? We want clients to come and buy our products and services. That's why we sell them on our websites.
Yet, we shoo them away when they c...

The holiday season is closing in, and every business wants to make the most of it. Facebook and YouTube are littered with Ads. You want to make the most of this season as a course creator, freelancer, or infopreneur. Somewhere in the corner of your mind, you are asking yourself this question:
Should I run ads on YouTube and scale my course sales?
How many times have you bought something that’s not on your shopping list?
That lipstick or that sneaker that you bought last week. Perhaps it was a chocolate that you snagged while standing in the queue to buy groceries. Or maybe it's something else you bought. Apparently, impulse buying accounts for between 40 and 80% of purchases.
But that's what humans do.
We are emotional beings. We tend to do a lot ...
Why do clients buy?
The biggest question on any entrepreneur's mind is this. What makes people buy? The answer is pretty straight forward today, as opposed to a few years back. They buy something to fix a problem. Even iPhone buyers but their expensive Apple gadgets to fix problems. Sometimes the problem could be a functional one (like, "safe from spam ware"), a personal one, or a social one (like, "feel goo...
Are you trying to sell products or services?
For a long time, people who sold were considered cheaters and swindlers. These were the time when men went around on horsebacks and carriages from one town to another selling "stuff." The only goal these people had was to make money. This trend continued in the 20th century with newspaper ads. From big, attention grabbing headlines to sell cures to esoteric diseases to &quo...

Are your Optin Pages converting enough?
Optin pages are the lifeblood of businesses. Okay, I agree traffic is king. But how does that matte if the sentries don't open the gates to the castle? The highway is bustling with traffic. But if you don't have proper exits and giant signboards to your megastore, your store is a haunted place.
You ain't gonna make sales.
There's no history of a business t...
