The 7Up Story

The 7Up Story

The 7Up StoryWe’re currently reading the book “We Want You To Be Rich” by Donald Trump and Robert Kiyosaki and in there Donald Trump recalls the story told to him by his father - the 7Up story.

It’s hugely significant for those of us on the journey of an entrepreneur because we truly understand how easy it would be to give up.

Funny thing is that we could but we don’t!

The 7Up Story and What It Means

Being stubborn is a big part of being a winner.…

My father used to tell us this story about a guy who loved soda, so he went into the soda business, with a product he called 3UP.

It failed. So he started again with a product called 4UP.

It failed, too. So he decided to name his product 5UP and worked just as hard to make it work, but sure enough, it failed again.

He realized that he still loved soda, so he tried again with a product named 6UP.

It failed, and he gave up completely.

Then, a few years later, someone else came up with a soda product and named it 7UP, which became a huge success.”

Whether the 7up story is true or not, we hope it can inspire people who are thinking of giving up to press on, have faith, and to succeed.

We’ve actually got the audio of the 7up story read by Donald Trump on our podcast  channel – Wisecast Radio so you can listen to it

The 7Up Story on Audio

The 7Up StoryThe message behind the 7 up story is never to give up because success is just one step away from failure.

We hope you found the 7 up story just what you needed if you’ve hit an obstacle or a stumbling block in your journey.

Trust us … we all have them.

Thanks for reading and wishing you the success you truly deserve

Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

apple-business-coffee-4159Would you like to know the top tools to run a six figure business on the internet?

We remember when we first got started with our business not having any tools or resources and having to find out for ourselves the top tools to run a six figure business on the internet

We want to give back so we’re putting together a book of all our best tools, resources and software and in the meantime here’s a selection on this blog to get your started.

There’s one thing we are absolutely clear on and that is that starting, running and growing a business takes time, money, tools and resources.  Inside this blog we’re giving  you some simple and hugely valuable ones (some are free) to use to help you get where you’re going faster.

Just ONE of these resources could be a total game-changer for your business

Let us know which ones you are already using and which ones are your favourites.  Just post in the comments section at the end and add value

Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

Here goes – in no particular order ….

LeadPages.net – Our number ONE choice for creating landing pages and a whole host of other uses such as capture pages, sales video pages, launch pages, webinar pages, give away pages …. just about any page you need to build a marketing funnel for.  Best of all you don’t need coding experience.

Lead Pages Screen Grab

This one tool above everything else has been responsible for supporting our six figure business.  We use this service every single day and truly could not be without it.  Best of all we can create pages that we can share with our business partners and clients to help them build their business too.

It’s our absolute #1 of our Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

We recorded this video to show you some ways we use this in our business

AWeber – The most important piece of software you will EVER use to create your list of subscribers and customers and building your biggest business asset.

Email marketing is the complete foundation of our online business and generates us income every single day.

This is the ONE tool that we protect with our lives because if all else were taken away we could start again with this (why it’s called an asset)

Their blog and support is first class and if we were to add one more tip after you get your account and find your way round is to get the AWPro Tools as this gives you additional flexibility in managing your subscribers and worth it’s weight in gold.

GetResponse – whilst it is an auto responder like Aweber, we use this for some of the other features we like better and to segment our subscribers in a different way.  You don’t need both.  We just like having both.

When we speak with new business partners they often ask us do we think it’s really necessary to have an auto responder service from the beginning.  The answer is YES. This is not a tool that is a maybe.  It’s a must!

Directory of Ezines – this was one of the very first resources that we were introduced to by our mentor 5 years ago and have a lifetime membership.  The world of solo ads or ezine marketing is an absolute minefield and many a keen entrepreneur has had their fingers and toes burned through solo ads (we’re members of that club too).  What we like about it is the fact you can test and try small and scale up and the owner Charlie Page will actually work with you to create your first solo.  Priceless!  Once you have the skills you can use that confidence to scale up.

SurveyMonkey – this is a great resource to find out what your subscribers and clients want.  It’s super easy to use.  They are also the providers of WuFoo which gives you the ability to get a little more personal – we’ve only just got this so we can’t give you any more information on right now.

MOBE – is an amazing home business education platform that lets anyone create a lucrative online business without ever having to pick up the phone. It’s an online business opportunity that has created a serious income for us and with some of the best training we have seen over the years.

GoToWebinar – Sign up for a free 30-day trial and host your very first webinar. Even if you have no one to invite you will get used to using the software and teach something you have learned.  Get great a doing webinars as it is a great way to add value to your subscribers and to make sales.  Our first mentor just told us this was the way to build our online business so we just did it.

Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

Dropbox – We have been using this for ages and it really is one of the most amazing tools you will ever use in your online marketing for storing and sharing documents  and best of all you can access it from multiple devices anywhere you are – like storing your computer hard drive on the cloud.  It’s Free and you get extra storage just by referrals.

Evernote – We absolutely love this tool.  We can use it from our iphones, our ipad or on our PC and synch it all.  We tend to use it to snag content we want to refer to and keep notes but you can also write and share content which is pretty cool too.

Kalatu – everyone working online needs a home where people can find them, read their content and get to know them.  Having your own website and blog is a must today.  Kalatu was designed with you in mind with its easy customisable word press style platform ready to use without all the hassle of word press.  Whilst we already have our own authority site that you are reading this on, we also have a Kalatu site for you to see on which we share mindset and motivation content.

Canva – pictures and images convey more than words ever can.  We use this brilliant piece of software and it’s easy to use templates to create images to use for our website, Facebook, Ads, marketing etc.  We recorded a video on how to create your very own Facebook Cover using the software.

Pixabay – this website will become a firm favourite with you just as it is for us.  It is full of royalty and licence free images you can use on the internet plus you can also access at a reasonable price stock images if you can’t find what you are looking for.  Get a bundle at a discount so you are never stuck for an image.  Works great with Canva if you then want to write on the image.

Sniply – this neat little software lets you share content from anywhere on the web and add a very cool call to action.  We think of it like advertising right on CNN, Entrepreneur or Inc. Here’s an example of what we mean

Skype – we could not manage our business without skype.  Its an awesome tool for teaching, training and talking to clients.

Unroll.me – time is the most valuable commodity in our business and trawling through unwanted emails we subscribed to “once upon a time” is such a pain.  This free tool allows you to mass unsubscribe and then have those you want delivered in a daily digest.  Love it!

That concludes our  Top Tools To Run A Six Figure Business On The Internet

We couldn’t leave without mentioning Facebook :-)

Social media (particularly Facebook) is another of those “things” that consume time so use it wisely.  If you are using it for marketing then use it for marketing and discipline your activities.
