I truly love the online journey. Seeing new sites, visiting new posts, play with the buttons and gadgets. Life don’t get no better than this, or does it?
Hello and Welcome to giddy up and go with Michael The Traveling Trucker.
I attended my weekly Thursday webinar presented by my mentor Janet Legere. It was so right up my alley. Creating a resource page and putting it on my blog.
I put my primary business, which is CLB Learning. I put a brief description of what CLB Learning is with a banner ad.
Then I went on to The Conversion Pros. I also did a brief description, then add a banner add.
I finished with Udimi Solo ads, giving a brief description, followed by banner ad.
I was shown to publish my page. Then taken to the CLB word press blog. I then hovered my mouse over the appearance on the left side. From there I went to menu. When the page came up below the Add menu items was pages. Resource was the first one. I checked the box next to it.
Then I went down to add to menu. Then hit the save button. BAM, Done. Now it is on my blog page at the top. I can direct people to the resource page while keeping my blog uncluttered with too many programs I am promoting.
P.S. Look at the top of my page and you will see Resource. click on it for my Recommendations.
Most outside people will never understand what you are trying to do. Their opinions and attitudes will NEVER define who YOU ARE. Choose today, to quit listening to the TOXIC people.
In your mind’s eye, WHAT DOES YOUR FUTURE LOOK LIKE? Do you hold the world in your hands? Do you look at the problems or look for the answers?
What books are you reading? Who are you listening to, so your business will GROW? What do you flood your mind with on a daily basis?
It’s time to rise up. Tell your SPIRIT, Today Is My Day. I will not look back, back up, or give in. The business highway is before me. It’s time for a mind-blowing road trip. Buckle up, switch gears, and burn rubber.
Michael’s favorite saying,” You have two choices when you wake up in the morning, be happy or sad. There are enough sad people in the world without me being one.
Looking back is always perfect vision. It’s easy to look at where we have been and realize what choices we should have made or paths we should have taken.
It’s easy to miss the lessons of life that God is teaching us through constant challenges. Within the context of those challenges, we find valuable life lessons that must be learned.
So do you show up daily? Do you do your best for this day? Today is all you have, so let us DREAM BIG, TAKE ACTION and FOLLOW UP and FOLLOW THROUGH.
What is your biggest challenge? Mine is connecting to people. Being a driver, I have drive days that keep me driving all day and part of the night. I don’t get the opportunities as often as I like for my phone calls, texts and emails. I will do my best today. I will show up. I will make those calls.
Building a business is really a 2-5 year plan. You will have high’s and low’s. I see through observation of my leaders, they are consistent in all they do.
Here is a great interview with Rob Gehring, Hosted by Lisa M Gentile. Rob describes his daily routine. Click here to watch the video.
Describe your daily habits. What do you start with, and where do you end your day?
I start with my blog, Phone calls are next, with texts and emails second. I jump on the advertising wagon, shooting those arrows. I read and comment on different post, upvoting at every opportunity.
As we build our following, remember it’s all about PEOPLE. Be kind, lead with passion, love with a grateful spirit. Be willing to give your ALL. The reason I’m here is my mentors have shown such love, passion, and commitment to me. For that, I’m eternally grateful.

Communicate With The Person You’re Buying Ads From. You are buying from a real person so please make sure this person is trustworthy.
TEST THE LIST : Test the smallest amount the owner will let you , and see what results you get before buying larger quantities.

Would you share your best traffic sites with me? People helping people is the name of the game. When you help one person you help the community as a whole.
Welcome Saturday Truckerettes, This Is Your Host, Michael The Traveling Trucker.
I’ve been studying lately how to get the right people to open my emails. I have to say some of the info was eye opening and thought provoking.
Let me ask this question, What is your open rate? When you track and split test, what are your results?
The average email open rate is 21.33 percent. Keeping track of your results is vital. This shows what works and what doesn’t. If you don’t belong to Hits Connect, click here. This is a great site for tracking your results.
To get people to open your email, start with a benefit: People feel good when they know they will benefit from you, It will give people the incentive to open your email. Say something like: How to triple your social media following.
When you create CURIOSITY, people are really tempted to open your email. Write something like: What Does reading have to do with success or what to do if some falls down?
USE NUMBERS: Users understand what’s in store for them when they click an article. It’s about clarity, helping them to manage their expectations. Example, Why 90% of marketers are doing it wrong?
Borrow Credibility: People love to know what well-known people think, give advice, or talk about how to solve a problem.
HERE IS A COOL SITE I FOUND:
The #1 Free Headline Analyzer
Write Headlines That Drive Traffic, Shares, And Search Results
Do you set goals? Daily, weekly, monthly, yearly? Do you have a 5-year plan, 10-year plan? Do you do income-producing activities or just busywork?
The 1st thing is to set up your funnel. Do you know how to set up your lead capture page for your funnel? We can show you. Click Here, Then advertise, finally, follow up and follow through.
This is my recommendation: Follow up, Stay positive, and Talk To The Right People. Make sure you ask qualifying questions, How much money on a monthly basis, do you want to earn? What would that amount do to your lifestyle? What type of budget do YOU have?
If people don’t have a budget or a small budget, it will be much harder to achieve the success they want. You can do it on a small budget, just plan it out in every detail, so you will begin to get the results you are looking for.
If people don’t have a budget or unwilling to get a budget- I know this sounds harsh, but move on. These people will drain your time and energy.
Being a Coach and Mentor, it is our responsibility to guide, make sound recommendations, show by example, share what we know. Leaders-lead, Coaches-coach, Directors-direct. Teacher-teach. Become a gifted Mentor by improving on YOUR daily activities. What you do daily, is what you teach.
You’re sitting at home, in front of your computer. You have reached a point where you want to earn some additional income. You would love some relief from the bills and not having enough of the daily things in life. You have penny pitched enough. So begins your delve into internet marketing. You look around, not sure what you are looking for. You see an ad like this: So you click, the click here now button.
Then it takes you to the New Member Registration page. Some fill it out while others who are skeptical go right on by. Some forms ask for your name, email, and phone number. At the bottom of the form, it says, if you don’t want to leave a number, place the number 5 in the box. This is where I don’t understand, why do people put a fake number in? If you don’t want the call back place the number 5 in the box. We respect your privacy. As someone building a business, this gives me false hope. When I see a number, I call it, then you hear, this phone number is no longer in service, mailbox full can’t except any new messages, or my favorite error 57, which means no number exists.
My best friends, coaches, teachers, and mentors do their very best each day to provide solutions to YOUR money problems, by offering you simple to follow, step by step instructions to help build YOUR marketing business. We are here for YOU, to help YOU, love YOU, encourage YOU. Point YOU in the right direction so you don’t get lost. I have over 100 referrals in two businesses I promote. I have called, texted, or emailed most of them. It’s sad to say most have never responded back. I keep advertising because I know persistence will pay off in the long term.
I know I have not met the right person, at the right time with the right mindset to say- OK I LIKE WHAT I SEE-SHOW ME THE WAY. This is my main focus of being a coach and mentor. I have the knowledge you don’t have yet, so I get the privilege to instruct you as I was instructed by people who have been marketing for over 20 years online. When they started it was way harder than what it is now. BE HONEST WITH YOURSELF. Be honest with us. We understand how hard it is, not having enough. We were in the same boat not that long ago.
If you are looking for the next shiny thing keep looking. There are thousands to choose from, going from one sign up page to the next. If, I say IF, YOU are looking for a real money maker, let Michael The Traveling Trucker shift your outlook into high gear with a tried and tested business model that has been going strong for over 20 years.
