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.
The entrepreneurs below are creative, driven and they sure know how to find customers online. In fact, they’ll be be dispensing golden nuggets of wisdom in my new eBook. I’ll be posting the release date in a few days.
But today’s post is all about them, so read on and let me know what you think in the comments below.
I’m guessing you’ve heard of Amy Porterfield. If 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
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.
Do yourself a favor and check out his blog.
The You Economy
Tara 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
If you’re looking to make money online, John Paul Aguiar might be your man.
The guy really is a blogging entrepreneur. In 2001, after a Kidney transplant and monthly disability checks forced him to get creative, he did.
John started constructing a future for himself, and in a fairly short period of time, his Money Dummy Blog had over 110,000 followers.
His mission? To help you build a blogging business that makes you money.
