Have you considered the fact that you’re not drilling deep enough? That there might be some other business underneath dying to get out? A creative fire inside, ready to burst forth?

Some of the most successful people online started out as a Copywriter, Marketing Consultant, Coach, etc., but only when they went beyond those standard titles did they find success. Big success.

But today’s post is all about them, so read on and let me know what you think in the comments below.

Beyond Facebook

Amy-PorterfieldI’m guessing you’ve heard of Amy PorterfieldIf you haven’t, she’s a social media strategist (read: rock star) known for developing training crafted to help business owners create effective Facebook marketing strategies.

Industry executives, Fortune 500 companies and industry leader entrepreneurs come to Amy to learn about Facebook’s magic.

But she’s also a social media trainer with over 12 years of experience, speaking on the power of all things social. She’s worked with Tony Robbins and big brands like Harley Davidson, but man, does she know the intricacies of this online jungle.

Forbes, The Huffington Post, Mashable, ProBlogger, she’s written for them all, but now you’re seeing her at my humble little abode.

From email marketing, to Twitter to learning how to truly build a thriving audience, Amy knows. She’s also a very good teacher, all the better for you.

Selling as an Art

Anthony-IannarinoDid you say you want to learn how to sell?

Then you must pay attention to S. Anthony Iannarino. He’s a teacher, runs SOLUTIONS Staffing, and is the Director of a sales coaching and consulting company.

Personal Selling and Persuasive Marketing is his thing and he’s one of the five people online who actually know how to use Linkedin.

Sales success? A daily kick in the shins? He’ll provide both, amping you up and teaching you how to find and retain great clients.

The You Economy

tara-gentileTara Gentile works with clients to help them turn their grand visions into businesses that work.

A coach, blogger, and thought leader with a focus on the emerging You Economy, she teaches you how to do what you love and earn more money in the process.

Tara is all about clarity and her business is helping you turn your passion into dollars and cents. The entrepreneurs who work with her learn to expand their influence while reducing the bull work.

So again, what is Tara all about? Maximum impact with minimal effort. Sure sounds great to me.

The Business of Blogging

The guy really is a blogging entrepreneur. In 2001, after a Kidney transplant and monthly disability checks forced him to get creative, he did.

His mission? To help you build a blogging business that makes you money.

Freelance employment has been common in the areas of writing, editing, translation, indexing, software development, website design, advertising, open innovations, information technology, and business process outsourcing. Freelance journalists, for example, may find it easier to start their own or shared news blogs, with many blogs growing into highly-trafficked and competitive news sites capable of hiring dedicated staff and other talent.And Social Media is helping the freelancers very well, it is the ideal medium to promote the talent within you.
