2 Superpowers I used to Generate 1,000’s of Youtube Views and Cash In My Pocket

Imagine trying to build a successful business online and YOU HATE what you’re doing.  When most online entrepreneurs are trying to find a business model that gives them freedom and flexibility, many are getting caught up in activities that they HATE.  So how do you avoid this TRAP? You have to search for a balance between what you REALLY love to do and WHAT your customer’s are willing to pay you for – CALL THESE YOUR SUPERPOWERS!  Below I’ll show you 2 different ways I used skills and/or tools to get results and get paid for doing the stuff I love to do online!  This blog post is in response to Natalie’s 10 Day Freedom Plan Blog Challenge Day 4

HOW I FOUND MY SUPERPOWERS

It took more than 2 years of testing different business models and learning different skills before I finally came to the realization that I needed to narrow my focus a bit.  I thought I had to be good at everything – building sales pages and copywriting and social media marketing and video marketing.  I found myself always reverting back to video as a way to reach my target audience.

I found that I not only liked to use video, but that I was pretty good at getting the videos ranked in Google and on Youtube for specific keywords.  This led to one of my videos getting about 2,000 views very, very quickly.  More importantly, my video began generating leads which eventually turned into paying customers.

The second component of video I liked was that you didn’t even have to be in the videos if you didn’t want to be.  AND.. not only was there a market for producing videos, whiteboard explainer videos for example, but there was software you could buy that would make the videos for you!  Being the Geek that I am, my other SUPERPOWER, I was able to to use an inexpensive software to make videos for people who did not want to be in their own videos AND they PAID for the videos.  I don’t know how any one else feels about this, but video editing is A LOT more fun when you’re getting paid to do it!

Here’s a snap shot showing a couple of different jobs I did:

 HOW TO FIND YOUR SUPERPOWERS

Out of all of the different methods you may be using in your online business, what are the one or two things that you can spend hours doing and it doesn’t feel like work?  The second thing you need to ask yourself is, “Can I monetize this strategy, technique or method of delivering traffic?”  Finally, you have to be honest with yourself and ask if this is going to create a JOB for you or can it be automated to the point that you don’t sacrifice the freedom you want – which is why you started your online business in the first place?  If you find your activities are genuinely what you consider FUN, they’re profitable, and don’t take away from the lifestyle business you want?  CONGRATULATIONS!, you just found your Marketing Superpowers!
