WHY YOU NEED TO START AN ONLINE BUSINESS RIGHT NOW

YAAASSS! A side hustle I started a year ago continues to grow (and exponentially)! FANKEOW!! (You've got to excuse my penchant for exclamation marks cos I am THAT EXCITED!)

The numbers don't lie. In the past 30 days, the business has generated over US$9000, which works out to be over SG$13,000. Working less and making more IS possible! When I started this baby out, my intention was to bring in an extra S$1000 each month on the side... you know, to adequately cover my addiction to Nespresso capsules (20 sleeves of Ristretto please!).

I am in love with owning online businesses which are location-free, rent-free, cubicle-free, stock-free, delivery-free and kachings even when I am sleeping. It's smart and practical to shun away from brick-and-mortar businesses in Singapore - where land is scarce, rental is insanely high, with foot traffic migrating online in throngs.

This business model not only scales elegantly, it is in total agreement with my diminishing energy levels as I age (respecting the body is no longer an option but a necessity these days).

Thank you Internets!

My advice to my friends these days is to start an online business ASAP, even if it's a side hustle to supplement a day job, to leverage on the key trends that continue to change the way we work, make a living AND HAVE A LIFE (more time with kids, travel anytime, Netflix a lot, whatever tickles your fancy). Create a business that can support your ideal lifestyle, not just with money, but with other currencies of freedom, autonomy and joy.

Don't miss out on riding this wave with technology and consumer behavioural changes. The way I see it, this golden wave will last another 3 to 5 years max. Don't be late to the party.

THE POWER OF THE MAILING LIST

Hey happy bunnies! Just wanna quickly share an observation and some very encouraging tangible results illustrating the power of the mailing list for one of my online businesses.

My relationship with mailing list is just... well let's just say it's pretty much non-existent. I know it's THE HOLY MOTHER DRAGON GRAIL of marketing in the sea of social media channels but I was complacent and just didn't think of starting one cos I didn't think mailing lists were sexy.

For the past half a year, I decided to get off my lazy bum bum and started working on growing a mailing list.

I've collated some numbers here and it speaks for itself. The sales spikes correlate directly to emails being sent out and it appears to also carry a spillover effect, creating momentum in sales. Yesterday we made US$537 in sales, and we are at US$573 today with half a day more to go.

Yay! + *bunny hop*

I have a clean mailing list of just 300 (highly targeted people) which I've grown over the past 6 months (through content upgrades, giveaways, special promos). It's a slow process and I had to be patient.

There is so much information out there which we do not lack, so what's more mission critical is consistent implementation.

Too much information. Not enough implementation.

Trust the process, and take action everyday that will strengthen your confidence and build your business and personal life.

Have a great 2017 ahead!

Much love and light + XOXO!


A quick update on the figures for today since numbers just closed.

 

Final daily sales for 10 January 2017 closed at US$683. That's about 27% higher than previous day's sales. That works out to be close to S$1000. Pretty fly for a day's takings.

FANKEOW!
