Hey everyone, Brian here. On my last post, I discussed how I’m starting to do video business consultations. My goal with these consultations is to give my opinion of what I would do if I was in the business owners’ shoes.
We have had a lot of success with Happy Mothering and I’m sharing what works for us. Granted, what works for us may not work for everyone and that’s okay.
What’s important to me is that I share all of my thoughts and opinions without holding back. This is so whoever I’m speaking to can see a different point of view than the one they have.
At the end of the day, whatever anyone does with their business is their decision. My hopes are that they can replicate some of what we’re doing to have more and better success at generating income online.
Legends Dog Training
So in my 1st Video Business Consultation, I spoke to my longtime friend Brian Rose and his wife Alyssa.
Alyssa and Brian recently created an online video dog training course they are starting to sell called Base Training Method.
Alyssa also has her website hub Alyssa Rose Training.
So with all of that, they have a huge lack of knowledge of what to do or how to do it when it comes to effectively marketing online. Marketing online is my jam… so it just makes sense for me to chat with them and help them grow.
The Business Consultation
This is a VERY long consultation. Way longer than we intended for it to be. I would like to see all of these planned business consultations coming in around 45 minutes. At the end of the day, I’ll spend as much time with whomever I’m speaking with as needed.
I give Alyssa and Brian my thoughts and opinions on what I would do with their business as if it was my own. From website design to their sales page to how to utilize their multiple websites to grow their brands to social media.
Here’s the video business consultation. Be sure to check out the resources for bloggers below the videos.
Resources for Bloggers
Here are some of the resources I mentioned in the above consultation. I think it’s a great idea to have a few links below and some extra knowledge on some of the things we were speaking about.
Affiliate marketing is where a lot of people start off online to try to make money. An affiliate program is basically a sales commission program. When you sell something through your website or one of your online channels, you get a commission.
You can either deal directly with a company if they have an affiliate program or you can utilize an affiliate broker.
Affiliate brokers have tons of affiliate programs they’ve screened to make sure they’re good offers. The affiliate brokers also have tons of affiliates who they screen to make sure they’re good affiliates. It’s a win-win all around.
We have an entire blog post that goes over all of the affiliate brokers we use/ have used in the past… including the ones I mention in the video above.
Our Affiliate Disclosure
Affiliate disclosures are super important… not just because I say so, but because the FTC says so here, here and here as well. The FTC can and will drop the hammer down on people who don’t use affiliate disclosures.
This Forbes article is full of some amazing insight into what it takes to be an influencer. And make no mistake, the moment you start advertising any affiliate program, you are influencing a person’s decision to buy a product… making you an influencer.
If you are making money for or from ANYTHING online, you must let your readers know. And rightfully so. We are so super open with our lives, we preach it. And we don’t try to hide anything at all when it comes to us making money from this site.
For those of you know me personally, you will be super shocked by this… I follow all of the rules laid out by the FTC to the letter. For those of you who know Chrystal, you’re like “of course she does… and in other breaking news… water is wet.”
So, you can see we have a disclosure at the top of every post on our blog, this one is no different. And you can see our Amazon affiliate disclosure at the bottom of every page, this one included. You can also read our entire disclosure on our disclosure page, which we link to at the bottom of every page. Not to mention, we talk about how we make money with affiliate marketing.
We are very open with our readers that we make money from the recommendations in our links and you should be too.
The first of many Video Business Consultations to come!
So, I really hope this video business consultation with Alyssa & Brian provide you some amazing value. My 1st goal is to provide whomever I’m giving a consultation to as much value as possible. My 2nd goal is to provide you, the reader, with as much value as I can as well.
It is very possible and realistic to make money online. That said, it takes a lot of work and it’s not an overnight process. I wish each and every one of you the best possible vibes on your online journey to generating an income.
