About MichelleJM
Joined October 2016
I am an IT professional in Jamaica. I love technology but not my job. I am passionate about animal care and I dabble in photography.

My primary goal is to clear all my debts... If I can go even further and achieve financial freedom, that would be great too... but for now... baby steps.

Ultimately, I want to leave the 9 to 5 daily grind, just to get by. I want to start living! I am at a point where I need more control of my time to achieve my goals and I need to be free of financial road blocks.

I want to spend more time nurturing my photography skill. I want to travel around the island (and beyond) visiting animal shelters and donating my time and resources to keep them going.

I NEED to fulfill my dreams, so I can start making new ones!

Great goals Michelle,

The first step to achieving success online is to set some goals and now that you have done this you can start working towards them. Your goals are absolutely achievable and realistic. Dedicate yourself to working through the training, taking action, and getting help when you need it.

I am personally here to help you and there are many others within the community that will reach out to help too.

You are already doing great, keep it up!

Greetings from New York City!

I like your thought process, Michelle. So often, people focus on one or two dreams, and when they reach them, they just settle. It doesn't stop until you breathe your last breath.

Michelle, I see you are making some good progress through the Affiliate Bootcamp. Just wanted to pop by and see if you need a hand with anything?

I also wanted to mention the success rates of Bootcamp. Absolutely everyone that has taken action on all of the phases of Bootcamp has a business that is generating consistent income online. MANY of these folks are going to be at our super affiliate conference next year.

I want this to be you and I want you to succeed with your promotions. So, please promise me that if you ever need a hand or feel stuck as you move forward, that you will get in touch with me!

Trust me, I know things can be a little overwhelming sometimes and I don't want you feeling like that.

Anyways, just checking in. Get back at me if you need anything Michelle.

MichelleJM Premium
Thanks for reaching out Kyle.

I had a busy week at work so I am only just now getting a chance to give my themes some serious thought from the bootcamp activities. Below is the result of my brainstorming. Its still a bit rough but I'm glad I have finally put pen to paper.

Theme 1 - Habits for Success
Habits, routines and attitudes of successful people

1. Set SMART goals, short to long term - daily, weekly, monthly goals
2. Plan your day/ Make a to-do list
3. Take care of yourself - physical and mental well-being
4. Strive to be better than yourself... no one else matters
5. Visualize the goal... everyday. reminders help - posters / post-its / phone alarm
6. Get rid of clutter... from work space / mind / ppl with negative energy
7. Surround yourself with people you admire
8. Meditate / take quiet you time
9. Find your motivation and inspiration. never stop learning - read / tedTalks / blogs like this one
10. "just do it"... stop over analysing and just start something


Theme 2 - Formula for Success
Factors and key elements of a successful online business

1. Know your product...make sure its something you're passionate about
2. Know your audience... don't cast your net too wide
3. Build your website... should be clean, welcoming
4. Provide valuable, targeted content... do your research
5. Add a personal touch... ppl are more comfortable doing business with someone they "know". take the time to share a bit of ur story
6. Search engine optimization (SEO) is your friend. Learn it and use it
7. Social Media... great for marketing and driving traffic to your website
8. Be persistent... the brave may fall but never yield!
9. Be consistent... it takes several good experiences to build a good reputation and only one bad to lose it
10. Never stop evolving


Theme 3 - Managing your Success
Tracking, measuring and assessing your online business

1. Customer reviews / feedback
2. Website metrics - hit count / bounce rate / busiest days / busiest time of day etc.
3. Social Media presence
4. Lead to customer/subscriber conversion rate
5. Most and least popular product/posts... whats trending
6. Profitability
7. Search engine ranking
8. Source of traffic... social media vs search engine vs referrals etc.
9. Access device... PC vs mobile
10. Referrals - spreading the word is the greatest compliment a customer can give

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Frank,

Thank you for following up with me. I have been thinking about my niche and the below are my top 2 ideas:

- Green Smoothies
This is something I have been researching and trying myself now for about 2 months and I think it's narrow enough to apply to a very specific set of people. I can even narrow it down a bit more by targeting vegans.

- Photography
I haven't been able to narrow this down enough. I'm still learning myself so maybe focus on education... drill down a bit more into the tech rather than the artistic side perhaps.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Hmmmm, I'm not sure how you would monetize Green smoothies other than selling recipes, and maybe blenders? This could be a good angle I guess.

In terms of photography, you could go down the equipment side of things, like cameras, camera lenses, camera stand (tripods), lighting maybe? There's quite a wide scope there, depending on the angle you approach it with.

First thing to do though is to nail down your niche. I think you're on the right track in terms of narrowing down your niche, but just in case, I developed an exercise that might help you to clarify the direction of your niche.

Be sure to do all four exercises.

Here's the link.
http://www.stealthsecrets.com/how-to-determine-the-direction-of-your-niche/

Let me know if you have any questions / feedback on the exercise.

Hope that helps. :)

Best,
Frank

Thanks for the feedback. I'll check that out right now.

I'm considering doing the Affiliate Bootcamp too. I figure maybe I leave this niche stuff for when I have more time to do it right.
Reply
affilicoach Premium
Yes, you can definitely go for affiliate bootcamp as it is a niche in it's own right. It goes into a lot more detail as well, so it is definitely worth considering.

Hey what's up, Frank here,

I hope you are enjoying the training and making some wonderful progress! Please do touch base with me if you ever need a hand with anything or are feeling stuck, I am here to help. :)
