This is the fourth email in a series to help you reduce the workload involved in creating a business or a new income stream.
If you missed the previous three time saver tips, you can see all the newsletters from this week here.
Today’s tip is about traffic.
It’s important to everything you do online.
You can have the best product and offer in the world but if no one sees it, you may as well not have bothered to create it.
Traffic is that important to your success.
Luckily, there are many ways to get it.
You can get traffic through posting excellent content on your blog to be found by the search engines.
You can do it by posting regularly on social media and building a following.
You can do it by creating videos and loading them up to YouTube or TikTok or wherever.
Eventually, you WILL get traffic.
But all these methods take time. Lots of time.
I’m sure many people give up because of that.
Now, if you happen to have built a large list of responsive email subscribers from past efforts, you can tell them all about your new product or venture and you may not need to wait for organic traffic methods like those above.
If you have a large group of affiliates prepared to talk about your product, ditto.
But if you have neither of those things, you can cut weeks, even months or years off your success timescale by using paid ads.
There’s that unwelcome idea: paying for traffic.
Maybe you can’t afford that, or you think you can’t, but if you’re spending money on inessential items, you might find your budget (as little as a few dollars a day) could be better spent on traffic.
It will take some money and experimentation to get your ads right, but once you crack paid traffic, you will find out very quickly if a product is going to sell or not and either
- send more ads to it so you sell even more (and create more products like it) OR
- stop trying to revive a dead duck and go onto the next product or project.
Imagine the time you can save by not spending years building up organic traffic to something that wasn’t going to sell anyway!
Or better, the boost to your motivation of knowing if you make the effort to build up traffic from your blog, social media, or videos, your baby will sell.
I have to say that I have been late to the party in using ads. They always seemed so expensive, you know.
So I understand if you’ve been reluctant to use them too. I really do.
But the people who master the art of paid ads get on further and faster than those of us not using them. Just a thought for today (even if it’s unwelcome – sorry!) 💖

This is an amazing deal on all these Coach Glue training packages – available only until April 21st.

I’m sure you’ll be blown away by the possibilities of the training courses and info products you could create for such a low fee.

BONUS SELECTION ( 💖💖💖 ITEMS ONLY)
As I had a lot of requests for various different bonuses, it’s now official that you can choose any one of the recent bonuses when you buy through any of my links marked with a 💖💖💖 in my newsletter on top of any other bonuses mentioned.
This works better for those who already own one or more of these or who want to buy a couple of items.
To claim just send your receipt(s) to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) and let me know which bonus(es) you would like. I’ll verify with the vendor and send them right back to you, usually within a day or so.
NOTE: A few people have asked for one of my bonus reports when they bought one of my own products but I haven’t been offering these as I don’t want to compete with my affiliates who like to offer their own bonuses or who maybe don’t have time to make extra bonuses.
So here’s what I’ll do for any sales going forward from today. For my products only, whether you buy through my link or through an affiliate, whenever you spend $17 or more in one transaction, you can also choose a bonus report from the end of this newsletter. 💖💖💖
By the way, there are a few new bonuses in the works. I just have to get them done and out of the works!
Here are the currently available bonuses.
