I am reading a book called ” Scaling Up” and it is one of those  “Get organized, get a plan, make a list books”.  I am not done with it yet, so I will reserve judgment on it.  But as a whole, while books like this can be helpful, most of the time they miss the fundamental point of the fact that nothing and I do mean nothing, happens until a sale is made period.

One of the mistakes I see made time and time again is that a lot of people and companies that we work with or that approach us anyway, seem to think that getting things organized first and foremost is the biggest hurdle to more success.

I can assure you that it is not.  It is about getting your product out there as fast as possible, to as many people as possible and focusing on making your clients happy, and making your product as good as you can, and last but not least, as simple as possible to get the job done…. Period.

Right after that is to make sure that you collect your money ASAP and that you have a continuity plan for your customers versus having to go chase chickens when you want an egg instead of providing a place for your chickens i.e. customers to keep laying them for you.

You product and your sales system may be a pile of manure and you may have it very well organized and documented, but it is still a pile of manure.

Figure out how to get your products and services in to a continuity/membership plan for your customers first.  Then if there is one book I would get and follow it is the “E Myth”.

Do those two things and you will be way ahead of the game.  Then perhaps you can be happy and spend as much time on the beach as you like.  It is much more fun than that manure pile. 🙂

Cheers,
Andrew

ftc-rules

Here are just some of the new regulations that we are going to discuss:

1. The rule that allows the FCC to freeze all of a companies and it’s officers assets. There are test cases where this has been done to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars, but this has not really been picked up by the media.

2. New rules for any automated billing including Membership Sites, Continuity Programs, and SaaS that if you don’t follow can put you out of business in a hurry. And why most of the Membership site software out there “used as is” can get you in big trouble in a hurry as of 2015.  There is only one piece of Membership Software that we know of helps you with compliance!  Nearly every single one out there (including the biggest ones) could be helping you get nailed by the FTC.

3. New guidelines for running online ads that are easy to comply with but at the same time you may be violating them already.

4. Why your web disclosures on your website by themselves are no longer enough and why you may be setting yourself up getting nailed by the FCC.

If you have a membership site. continuity program, or offer SaaS software that are new rules that impact all online business that deal with US citizens that have recently gone into effect for 2015. Continue Reading

The Importance Of Training For A Profitable Continuity Program Or Membership Site

Let’s put this in perspective. If you take any Master’s Level College course at this time you will probably spend between $1,200 on the low end to over $4,000 on the upper end and from the cost of that one course it doubtful that you will have the potential to make 10’s of thousands or even 100’s of thousands of dollars within a few months of taking it. But, with the right kind of Membership and Continuity Program training your chances of that happening are 1,000 times more likely. Continue Reading
