What You Missed

You heard from former Olympian Fabienne Raphael the creator behind Small Business Online Summit and how she’s built an amazing Periscope following.

Our guest for today is Harneet Bhalla is a digital marketing consultant and a master on giving advice to people who want to establish their online business from scratch. Harneet is a skilled business coach and advises some of the biggest names in the online marketing space.

Often entrepreneurs never really start from a place of abundance and Harneet is not exception to that rule. His first real introduction to the internet was receiving his first computer an then manually taking it apart to figure out how it all worked.  He was always fascinated with the “why” of things.  His interest didn’t stop there it crosses over to psychology of why people do what they do and the decisions they make.

I asked Harneet to give an example of how he would coach a client on making money starting from nothing. He not only breaks down the entire process Harneet went a step by step revealing and entire business plan. This information was not only a golden nugget I considered adding it to a premium course on business building.  Yeah guys it’s that good and you can find it here [17:47]

Here are the highlights of my conversation with Harneet:

  • [07:42]: How Harneet ended up destroying his brand new computer by having an unquenchable desire for knowledge and how things work.
  • [15:39] : The first website Harneet flipped for a thousand dollars in the eyecare niche and how this really started his online career.
  • [17:47]: An amazing 3-minute strategy on how to launch a book, get people to promote your book and ultimately purchase your work.
  • [23:27]: Why it is important to know your strongest social platform and be there and not to be everywhere.
  • [34:14]: Harneet explain how he built his first million dollars explains his strategy on how to negotiate start up fees, upfront fees and how to get equity on every sale instead of hours per dollars.
  • [40:50]: Why having a PR is important and how a PR manager can help your image, business or brand.

  Some quotes and advice from Harneet:

  • Running an ad is not about making a brand; it is about making a sale.  You don’t run ads to build your brand.

Here’s some parting wisdom:  Start your day like Harneet with meditation and some light exercise.  Notice he’s not checking email and letting everyone else dictate how his day is going to start.
