The best tip I can give you today for monetizing online is this:(no, it's not "stay consistent")It's a list of specific tasks. Here they are:• Charge more than you think you should. • Ask questions from people ahead of you.• Never stop learning and improving. • Don't be afraid to look "dumb". • Test your offers, content, and systems. • Make as many connections as you can.• Build multiple income streams. • Making mistakes is okay (learn from them).For me, it's simple. Always embrace what you don't know. If you always think you're "the best" or "smartest person in the room," you'll stay poor and unknown. Keep this in mind when building your one-person business on LinkedIn.—Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow @alexcolhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

1) Test Your Offers, Content, and Systems: Don't just throw things out there and hope for the best. Think of yourself as a mad scientist running experiments. Develop A/B tests to see which headlines resonate more with your audience, what kind of content gets the most shares, or what pricing structure leads to higher conversions. 2) Don't Be Afraid to Look "Dumb":Embrace the beginner's mindset. Asking questions,even if you think they might seem silly, is a sign of growth.The best way to learn is by doing, and sometimes that means stepping outside your comfort zone.3) Build Multiple Income Streams:Relying on a single source of income online can be risky.Spread your bets by exploring different monetization options.This could be a combination of offering freelance services, selling digital products, affiliate marketing, and even building a small subscription-based community. 4) Ask Questions from People Ahead of You:Learn from the experience of those who have already achieved success in your niche. Reach out to established online entrepreneurs, attend industry webinars, or join online communities.Ask targeted questions about their strategies, challenges, and biggest breakthroughs.

Solid advice! These specific tasks are crucial for anyone looking to monetize online effectively.Did you know that businesses charging higher prices see, on average, a 30% increase in revenue without needing to increase sales volume? It's about valuing your expertise and setting rates accordingly.

We definitely need to keep learning because there is so much for us to learn. And we can bring people more value that way as well.

"Willing to keep learning" is the most important attribute that you should have..That reminds me of Einstein's quote - "Once you stop learning, you start dying”..Nobody can really be a know-all. There are a lot of things that you might not know.Sometimes, your little kids teach you lessons that you never knew.. I have experienced it a lot of times..

    99% of people online never reach their goals.Here's a simple framework I use to make sure that doesn't happen to me (and you):Success is different for everyone. But most people think it's all about:• How smart you are. • How much money you have.• How many connections you have.And you may also wish for "luck." But take it from someone like me. I've turned my online business into a multi-six-figure revenue stream.I wasn't just "lucky."I didn't get a "head start." Here's what my looks like starting 2014:• I started a gaming business in 2014. • I got a summer job in 2015 to buy a PC.• I began writing on Twitter (20,000+ posts). • I started building my personal brand.• I landed my first two clients from Twitter.• I began building my business on LinkedIn.• I grew my audience to 200,000+. • I dropped my first course. • I started my coaching program. • I failed over and over. • I learned from my mistakes. • I never quit.And now it's 2024. 10 years later. We go up...And we go down...You'll win once you realize that lack of consistency hurts you more than anything.—Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    I've reached over 300,000 followers on all of my socials. Here's some advice for you: Your opinions drive more sales. Why? • People are emotional. • People don't use their brains. • Everyone has problems (yes, even you). My top engaging posts have a few specific things in common: • I use hooks that call out a pain point. • I share my weird and bold opinions. • I display my uniqueness. Starting today, I want you to figure out: • Your prospect's pain points. • Your prospect's problems. • Your prospect's fears. In your hook, call out those pain points. Relate those pain points to the problem. Then, showcase your solution. —Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    Here's how I grew from 0 to 25,000 on LinkedIn (in under 12 months):(without spending $$$ on engagement)Here we go:In 2015, I worked as a barista and cook at a crepe restaurant. I used the money I had to purchase my first real computer (windows, no Mac yet).I told myself I'd commit to:• Create content for at least 30 days.• Stay consistent in whatever I do.• Never give up.30 days turned 9+ years.Since then, I've continuously learned new skills, strategies, and life-long lessons.It was clear that I could change my life entirely by working online.That's when you can develop what I call a "long-term execution plan":• Create long-term goals.• Create short-term goals.• Build systems for ease.• Work one day at a time.Here are a few examples of what this execution plan looks like:1) "For the next 90 days, I'll post once daily and track the results."2) "I want to make $100,000 next year, so I must sell $273 worth of digital products/day.3) "I will learn a new skill every month that will help me scale my business from $10,000 to $20,000 / month.Some of these ideas may seem like a long shot at first...But they provide direction.Plan > Confusion— Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    Here's how to attract an audience of over 25,000 on LinkedIn:(from someone who did it under 12 months)The tricky part is this:Creating content people ACTUALLY want to read and consume every day.However, it's not as complicated as you think.(if you know what you're doing)Here's what I'd suggest:• Go to LinkedIn or Instagram.• Search your niche.• Use "_" to filter questions.• Save the top questions.• Write LinkedIn for those topics.This works for three reasons:• People are looking for answers.• People are searching these topics.• You have solutions for known problems.Win-win.You have confirmation that what you're writing about is a topic that others are 100% interested in.Market-validation 101.Once you're ready, try this:• 1x LinkedIn post/day.• 2x posts on X/day.• 1x newsletter/day.• 1x post on Instagram/day.• 2x new questions/day.Start small and build as you go.Look back every 30-60 days and review what's working and what isn't. Work smart.— Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    After creating content on LinkedIn for over 470 days, I've realized this:Every time you try something new, 99% of the time, it won't be any good. This applies to:• Writing emails.• Taking a sales call.• Building sales funnels.• Creating valuable content.• Sending connection requests.• Building new content systems.The list goes on.It's the simple truth. When a new student purchases my LinkedIn video course, I explain three things very clearly:• Results come with consistency.• Nothing you create will be "perfect."• Perfect action is better than perfection.I'd rather see you try something new and fail than do nothing. If you let the fear of failure get in the way when trying something new:• You'll regret your decision.• You'll see no growth.• You'll never run a successful business.It's the hard truth. Start building today.Start a new project today.And don't look back.— Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    This one productivity rule has helped me build a 6-figure business online:This rule is 100% effective. And it's this: I write every day. • Writing posts for LinkedIn. • Writing email content for Newsletter. • Writing scripts for YouTube videos. • Writing random thoughts in a journal.There's more to writing than just creating a post on LinkedIn every day.• Some days, I enjoy it. • Some days, It's a chore. Not every day is "perfect". That's close to impossible. Instead of focussing on your life as a day-by-day routine, look at the long-term picture. If you consistently apply this rule to:• Your life. • Your business.You'll be amazed how far it gets you. People will think you got "lucky". That's when you know you've won. —Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    One of the most painful things to see as a LinkedIn creator is this: Seeing others find success while you remain stuck at zero. The internet makes this problem worse: • Poor ideas are making tons of money. • Trash content goes viral. • Everyone listens to beautiful influencers. • People are attracted to ultra-fast paces. Why is everyone getting what you want EXCEPT you? There's one main reason for this. I see comments all the time: "Alex, how did you grow SO fast??" Here's the thing: I didn't. 99% of those people didn't see: • 6 years on X. • 1 year on LinkedIn. • 8 years on Twitch. • 2 failed product launches. • 4 years of freelance work. No one is an "overnight" success. Keep doing the work, and you'll see massive results on LinkedIn. — Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    Here are the top 9 best LinkedIn growth tips I can give you (that actually work):(I've grown my account from 0 - 25,000 followers in under 12 months) • Use proven frameworks. • Use CTAs to capture emails. • For viral posts; write to scale. • Use visually appealing graphics. • Use tools like Taplio to systemize. • For sales posts; write for specificity. • 90% of your focus should be on hooks. • Use white space and the 1-3-1 formats. • Find like-minded creators to engage with. If you can follow these simple growth "hacks," you'll be able to: • Go Viral • Increase Engagement • Build a Massive Audience • Create Content that Sells But remember this: None of these tips help if you don't stay consistent for the next twelve months. You have nothing to lose. Get after it. — Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.

    Do you know the #1 reason why LinkedIn creators aren't reaching their goals?It's completely prevented creators from:• Building their 6-figure business.• Launching multiple successful products.• Building a massive network online.• Starting a side hustle to quit their job.The reason is this:Creators aren't able to delay gratification.Sure, it's not easy sometimes.In today's online world, we're taught that we can have everything (in an instant).Over the past twelve months on LinkedIn:• I've reached 25,000 followers on LinkedIn.• Written copy for various articles.• Posted 10,000 tweets on X.• Written over 3,000 LinkedIn posts.• Built 6+ revenue streams.• Coached over 100 creators.• had my content read by 7M+ people.• Built a thriving one-person business.All of this is because I decided to write, build, and focus on creating online.Think about this:If you were to work on:• What you want.• When you want.• With who you want.You'd be living your dream, right?It's 100% possible (I'm doing it).When you:• Follow a proven system.• Have the guts to fail.• Build a set of tasks and goals.You'll have exactly what you need to find success online.You won't find what you're looking for overnight...The goal isn't to grow or make money "super fast"...The goal is to do it forever.Let's keep going together.—Enjoy this? ♻️ Repost it to your network and follow Alex Colhoun to build your 1-person business on LinkedIn.
