And within months I was making more money with less work than ever before.

I’ve never looked back.

And now online courses are the only thing I’ll spend time building.

Online courses literally ARE my business.

TFS 041: How To Make Money With Webinars

"How do you make money with webinars?"

When I tell people how webinars have benefited my business, they seem incredulous.

I’m making more in a week than most people make in a month with regular marketing methods.

But all these “numbers” - what do they mean?

I mean, do you have to already have a huge list to make this work? (hint: nope!). How many people can you expect to show up to your webinars?

Today I’m going to break down for you how I used webinars to "pre-launch" a product in about a month. I had an idea, a concept, and I was pre-selling. I was “gauging interest”.

Before and After: How 6 Course Creators Redesigned Their Websites for More Email Subscribers and Sales

Before and After: How 6 Course Creators Redesigned Their Websites for More Email Subscribers and Sales

“I don’t have a blog, can I still create a course or product?”

“I hate my website! It’s impossible to use. I can’t even edit it myself!”

“I want to start my online business, but step 1 is having a website and I literally have no tech skills and no idea where to start.”

For the past year, our readers and students have been telling us about their website struggles.

And we’ve been listening :)

So for a year, we tested and tweaked and optimized.

We studied what makes a website that converts.

Not a website that was “pretty” or “cool” - but one that actually converted MORE email subscribers and made more sales on autopilot.

How could we create the perfectly organized, optimized website just for course creators and infopreneurs like us? What would that look like?

HOW TO BUILD AN EMPIRE WITHOUT ADS (AND WHAT TO SPEND YOUR TIME & MONEY ON INSTEAD)

HOW TO BUILD AN EMPIRE WITHOUT ADS (AND WHAT TO SPEND YOUR TIME & MONEY ON INSTEAD)

The other day I did a webinar where someone asked me if I had used ads to build my business, get people to my landing pages, and register for my webinars.

I laughed, because I honestly don’t know the first thing about ads!

People in the comments and chat started saying how amazing that was...how we should never use ads because it was a HUGE feat!

Meanwhile I’m over here feeling super behind the times and stressing because we haven’t “tapped into” any paid advertising sources yet (no Facebook, no Twitter, nothing).

And then another friend on Periscope said to me in a comment:

I want to learn from you because you have actual hacks and strategies that I can implement without spending a lot on ads, but you still get huge results. Everyone else just seems to keep saying “just spend more on ads! Do fb ads! spend $xxxxx on ads!”.

Then the other day, I got an email from a reader interested in Your First 1K, but who said they weren’t sure I’d be able to help them since their niche is “banned” and not allowed to have ads on Twitter or Facebook (nothing dirty, just a finance-advice niche).

I was so surprised they assumed I focused on ad strategies, when EVERYTHING I teach in Your First 1K is organic, relationship-based, and totally free traffic and list building strategies.

I wanted to clear that up and also give my reasoning, since so many people seem shocked and curious about this topic when I mention it!
