Your List for 2012

Pour yourself the final glass of Egg Nog for the season.

Get a comfy chair and pull close to the fireplace. Have the dog sit at your feet…

…because I have a little task for you to do. It’s a little list that you need to make to help you kick off 2013 right.

But first, a little background…

The idea for your task all popped into my head during a recent Virtual Mastermind Hot Seat session with Alan Diza.

Matt Smith and I talked with Alan about all of the ways that he could prove his value to a potential affiliate.

As we went through the list, the obvious first idea for both Alan – and YOU – to implement was to promote the potential affiliate to your list.

Making money for someone ALWAYS gets their attention.

Another opportunity includes working with an affiliate to add their product to your upsell flow – and you would split the money with them. Or putting a link to their product on your download page or in your upsell flow.

You also really need to study your competitors by getting on their email lists, buying their products, going through their upsell processes, (recording this with camtasia/screenflow or screenshots), and becoming their customer.

That way you can identify the holes in their business where you can help them.

Those are all important things to list, but the most important list you need to make is next.

This is the real secret to helping others…you need to make Your Asset List.

Get creative and write down…

1) Who you know that could help your potential affiliate partners.

2) What you know that could help your potential affiliate partners.

3) What are your strengths and their weaknesses?

4) How are you different from them?

5) How would you improve their business if you were their CEO?

6) What are all the ways that you could make them more money?

Weird questions to ask about your competition, but in most cases (not all, but most), online competition should be viewed as online co-operation instead.

Think well, think right. Come up with your most generous ideas and implement them to start making a name for yourself.

And while you’re at it, consider this bonus topic to think about:

“Identify exactly what is you want. This takes a lot of thought. Then don’t let anything stand in your way of getting it.” – Kekich Credo #56

When you know EXACTLY what you want in life, it sure is a heck of a lot easier to get it.

So make sure you realize all of your assets and create your Vision and roadmap for 2013.

Then have your final sip of Egg Nog and pour yourself a glass of champagne to celebrate the end of 2012 (and all of your many accomplishments) and toast the New Year, for 2013 will be your BEST year EVER.
