Kristie started working online “in her pajamas” about 5 years ago and it has had been ups and downs – A LOT of downs. She says: “I had to learn how to FAIL faster, before I could succeed. Sometimes it takes getting your back up against the wall, before you finally begin to focus.”
I met Kristie through the very first JVZoo product that I stumbled upon by chance and bought, which was her Emergency Christmas Cash or in her own words “How This 55 Year-Old Baby Boomer Discovered A Ridiculously-Simple Way To Make $124.57.”
Since then a lot has happened. She became my coach and mentor and I have started my own IM journey, the result of which is this website and the services I offer.
I was naturally curious to find out more about Kristie and see what advice she may have for all those aspiring IMrs out there. And so I simply asked her.
Why did you quit your job? What was your job actually :-)? I quit my job as a Substitute teacher because I could not pay my bills with that job alone.
Can you tell me about your job now? Now, I interview Product Creators about how to make money online.
Tell me about the proudest moments at your current “job”. The proudest moments I have is when someone on my subscriber list writes in and says “I made money with the method you sent me” and thanks me!!!
What 3 things do you need to be successful working online from home? To be successful at working online from home you need to:
- Focus on one area of something you are passionate about such as make money online, or health, or crafts or gold or fishing or hiking or golf – YOU name it, but love it because you will spend many hours talking about it and creating content and/or videos about that subject.
- Pick ONE traffic source to promote it such as Youtube, Facebook, Twitter or paid ads.
- Keep being persistent at promoting your niche or subject until you have made enough money to expand your idea. For example, if you make videos on weight loss and begin making regular sales from one product, target another weight loss product (such as a CPA Offer) and make 3-5 videos about that product. It if makes sales, make MORE videos. Just keep expanding what you are doing with the same or similar products instead of jumping around to many different niches.
What is your recommendation for aspiring internet marketers? My BEST advice is to find one niche that is VERY hungry and likes to buy things to help them succeed in that niche and build a LIST of people who know you, like you and trust you. That is the ONLY way to be able to get wildly successful and eventually quit your day job.
Thank you for your answers, Kristie.
