How to Make a Fortune with a Mentor program. I prefer the term “mentor”. A mentor is a trusted advisor. In Greek mythology, Mentor was a trusted advisor to Odysseus.

Just something to think about.

Quizzes are serious lead, brand awareness and cash generators for many businesses, so pooh poohing them is not in your best interest. There’s three big reasons we do quizzes. One is list building, two is sales and three is getting new people to hear about us, commonly called “brand awareness”.

Let's talk about the forms of broadcast e-mail. I started out with a newsletter called Great Speaking, which was directed towards professional public speakers. Now this was a long time ago, folks. My mindset didn't support a regular output of these newsletters on a certain day every week. I just put it out whenever I had enough to say. I'm just more of a random guy. I mean I refuse to be held to a certain schedule. Now with this podcast, I learned that having a regular schedule grows your audience faster.

YIKES! I know that freaks you out, but when you see what I mean, you’ll understand that what I’m proposing is a good thing & 3) Dealing with spam comments on you

Contests are great for many things like list building, brand awareness, and even selling products. What’s also great is there are many built in features a contest has to help you go viral and get free traffic. Unlike a quiz, which I’ll cover in another episode, quizzes could potentially keep running forever. A contest usually has a start date and an end date. This is a built-in scarcity factor that causes people to take action and join before the deadline.
