Episode 358 – This Is Why Digging A Well Will Make You More Money Than Buying A Faucet?

What is the difference between getting water from a faucet or a well?

A faucet is easier, but you have to pay for what is being delivered. Also, you don’t own it. If you forget to pay your bill or if they feel you are not worthy, they can turn the water off at any time. You may own the faucet, but you don’t control the water.

A well is something that takes more effort to build, but you own the land, the well, and the water. When it’s done right, it will continue to provide a resource for years without constantly having to pay for it.

When it comes to your marketing, you can either pay for traffic and visitors to your website… or earn it.

In this episode, we will discuss how you make more money in the long run by creating marketing assets versus paying for advertising.

Episode 350 – Website Hosting… What Is It? Why Should You Care?

Web Hosting is something that you never really think about when it’s working, and obsess about when it’s not. It’s the lifeblood of your website and your information being found and viewed on the web and in search engines like Google.

I often talk about creating content assets and not trying to run a business on FREE platforms like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and so on. Then why would you want to run a business on a FREE web hosting service? Free means you don’t own it and you can be shut down at any time for any reason, and there is NOTHING you can do about it!
