The $500,000 Laptop
Hey hey! Robert here. Quick story: in 2012 I was sitting at my desk in my corporate job, hating life wondering to myself “is this all there is to life?”.
My job was to email people who hadn’t paid their insurance. I felt overqualified and underwhelmed. So I quit, and joined a $2,000 online course that was going to teach me to start my own business. I’m not too big on planning.
I Sucked At Business..
Quit my job to start an online business
2013 - 2015
Making mistakes, and learning a lot. Sales are only 5 figures annually. I get a part time job to pay my bills.
My business hits 6 figures in revenue
I systemize and automate as much as possible. Business grows about 50%.
My business has a $50k month. Also I start One Step Away, and we get 150k followers in 30 days.
Shortly after quitting my job I realized I had no clients, and no income. I learned that I’m not a natural salesman, and ended up taking on some short term jobs to keep myself afloat while trying to figure out how to make money online.
I got my first client by walking into a nail salon and asking: “hey, do you need a website?”.
I made $2,000 and it was a very proud moment.
The next few years I went on like that, getting clients here and there, making a ton of mistakes and leaning a lot.
After some big big lessons and a lot of tweaking, I built my business to the point where not only were we getting new clients every single week, but I also had a high quality team that actually took care of everything.
The $500,000 Laptop
I spent a ton of time automating repetitive tasks, building up a highly reliable team, and tweaking our website to the point that clients would thousands of dollars worth of services from us without ever meeting or even talking with us.
This business was built on nothing but my Macbook laptop. No office, no sales staff. We started with nothing, not even money to spend on advertising.
Today I’m Opening Up The Curtains
I spent 6 years tweaking and testing, making mistakes, and making one-off changes that turned out to be hugely profitable.
Today I want to let you in to watch a video I recorded where I literally break down my whole business from beginning to end. Here’s a few things you can expect to see.
- How we drive traffic to our website
- Full breakdown of our website
- The one paragraph we added to our site that made us tens of thousands of dollars
- What a “salesman website” is, and how you build one for yourself
- What happens when someone places an order
- How my team operates
- How we use templates and internal communication software to keep track of everything
- How we communicate with clients, including what software we use
- How I’ve saved us hundreds if not thousands of hours by training new clients using text and video
- The only 3 ways to grow your business
I Was Going To Charge $19 For This Video
No bullshit, I planned on selling access to this video for $19, and one of my business partners literally sent me an audio message saying “dude why would you give away all that value for $19? It should be $297”
You can watch this FREE video until I take it down again. Not only do I show you what we’ve done but throughout the video I pose questions for you to think about, so that you can apply some of the things you learn.
So put your smartphone on Do not disturb, and grab a pen and paper, you’re going to need it. Let’s go.
