The Secret to Getting More Than 24 Hours in a Day

Share Button

Nobody wants to work 16 hours a day.

Nobody wants to be stuck at their computer, keeping their sites “alive”.

The reason most of us begin in internet marketing is because we are sick of killing ourselves 9-5, 5 days a week – just so that we can get 2 days off on the weekend, and 2 weeks per year paid vacation…

…We want freedom – we want free time and free money – so we can do whatever we want – driving fast cars and living in big houses, sailing around tropical island paradises, to just “being there” with our families – and doing it all without having to worry about setting the alarm clock for Monday morning.

But it’s how to make this “free time” and “spare money” that trips most people up.

The “Passive Income” Paradox

Most people try to create “free time” by working less – only to find that their “spare money” runs out very quickly when their websites are left to age and decay on their own…

…Or they create “spare money” by working harder – losing their “free time” in the process, trading one ball-and-chain job for another.

You probably know the solution already [hint: it's getting other people to do the work to create profits for us] – but it might be “too difficult”, “too expensive”, “too risky”, “too time-consuming”, “too unprofitable”, “too stressful” or “too imperfect”.

That’s why I want to introduce you to Marc Lindsay and Daniel Turner.

The Masters Who Run Multi-Million Dollar Businesses on Outsourced Labour

Marc and Dan have built their multi-million dollar (per year) web empire using outsourcing.

They currently have over 140 websites, over 100 “staff”, 3 companies (including one of the world’s most respected SEO companies), and offices on 2 continents – and have several sites and companies that make 7-figures per year.

The Key is Their Systems

The brilliant part about Dan and Marc’s business is everything runs on systems.

That means Dan and Marc didn’t take on the role of being “outsourcing managers” as their new job title – everything runs by itself, according to the system.

And this means their businesses run themselves, grow themselves, improve themselves, and become more profitable – making Dan and Marc more and more money with practically no time and effort required.

Dan and Marc’s “Outsource Method”

If you want to find out more about how they did it, Daniel and Marc have just released their “Outsource Method” – their “how-to” guide that gives you the systems and techniques that they use in their own business.

It will show you how they started their business for $50 while they were flat broke – and how you can get started the same way (hiring staff who will take the load off you for just $50 per month).

The $1 Introductory Trial

The price will be going up to $995 on October 15th. But if you get in before Thursday, you can try the full course for $1 (paying $297 once-off in 10 days time if you like what you get.)

If you want to find out more, or get access to Dan and Marc’s Outsource Method at the $1 trial price, here’s our referrer link. (If you decide to keep the course, we make a commission.)

Alternatively, here’s the direct link if you prefer (using this one, we won’t see a cent).

Make sure you get it at the $1 introductory trial price (before Thursday October 15th) – this is incredible information that you won’t want to miss.

Since I met Marc and Dan in March 2008, I’ve hassled them for just snippets of this information whenever I’ve hit a business impasse – and the nuggets they’ve given me have been pure gold.

Tomorrow, I’m getting into a supercharged Mini Cooper S, and driving along the Great Ocean Road to an isolated cabin for a week-long vacation – I’m taking my copy away with me.

    Brent:
    Thanks for the heads up, but right now I am not ready in my process. I am concentrating on learning MS and TB and launching my blog.

    I am combating this loss of time now by cutting back on all but what moves my project forward. I am dedicated to learning MS, providing feedback as I can and with my other commitments I have a full plate.

    I have unsubscribed to all but 30DC, MS and TB lists, and market research feeds, when I am satisfied and completed all units of 30DC I will then move to PLUS.

    I am always ready to lend an ear to MS. Many questions still remain for me, I have just scratched the surface with MS alone.

    To our success,
    best, Richard

    hey richard..its good to be focused…

    i too am like a magpie..and have wasted so much time jumping from one guru’s offer to the next…

    congratulations…with your sharp FOCUS…armed with that….u can only move forward…

    as Stephen Pearce advices: Focus…Consistency…Patience = Success

    ps. whats TB? PLUS?

  2. Here’s an even better idea…

    Make Market Samurai portable for the iphone and allow it the functionality to create blogs on the go… So you could be in Spain on the beach and post up a small micro blog ;)

    Or read the book ‘the 4 hour work week’ :)

    I can’t believe the first email I get is a promotion. Its great that these guys have found a goldmind. But if they have really been there with just $50 to spare then give the rest of us with just $50 to spare a break. All I can say is WTF guys, do you remember the hard times too.

    I have been using an outsourced virtual assistant for most of this year to handle the heavy lifting and menial tasks with my sites.

    I’ll check this out – I’ve learned from this experience that systems are the missing link in this process.

    Btw I agree an iPhone app for ms would be killer

  5. While I (and I’m sure we) all appreciate the insights on how to improve our business, at least for me, this is a little beyond where I am today.

    It is amazing how often I am peppered with the emails on the latest and greatest and sometimes find myself just “taking a look” at a guru’s next greatest slant on how to make money online.

    If I let myself, I could spend all my “working” time looking at another program. So, like Richard above, I’m going to focus on using and improving my use of MS, TB and WPD. Once the money starts rolling in, I’ll look at outsourcing but until then, I need keep my eye on the ball.

    Thanks Brent for keeping us in the loop though.

  6. Hi Brent,
    I started enjoying the blog post thinking that you were going to come out with some gems about using leverage in your business as a way of creating effective use of time. There is no doubt that our target market of small business owners are really short of time and could do with some wisdom on how to use their time more effectively.
    It was disappointing to find that this was just another sales push instead of some really good infomration which is what I’ve come to expect from a good blog post.
    Still love Market Samurai and tell everyone I know to make sure they buy it.
    How about doing some blog posts on the importance of long tail keywords or something which relates more closely to the incredible product which you guys have created.I’d be really happy to spread that sort of post to all our readers as well

  7. Hi Brett,

    Thats three promotions in a row, not what I would have expected.

    I know you say it helps fund more engagements, but maybe do it on another blog.

    Sort of cheapens a great product imho.

    Wouldn’t bother commenting if I didn’t care.

    All the best

  8. I’m a little surprised that some people are complaining about getting a promotional email from Brent. I bought MS about 6 mo. ago, and I can count on one hand the number of promo emails I’ve received. Contrast that with a high-priced monthly membership I belong to, who sends me promo emails several times PER WEEK. If the membership wasn’t so damn good I’d have been off those guys’ list long ago. As it is, all they’ve accomplished is to give me ‘ad blindness’ and I never bother to look at their offers.

    So the fact that Brent does it so rarely makes me inclined to take a look at this product. I’ve been convinced for a while that systems and outsourcing are the only way I’m going to get my business to the next level, and I’ve taken the first baby steps. But it’s a little intimidating when you’re going it alone and you aren’t sure what the hell you’re doing.

    Maybe this product is crap, maybe it’s not. But for a $1/10-day free trial, to me it’s worth it to take the time to find out for myself.

  9. Hi Brent,

    thank you for the heads up. I’m just starting to outsource, I will check them out.

    Kind regards & good health,

    Darren C.

    Thanks for the steer, just starting to look into outsourcing to free up some time so will definately take a look. Keep up the good work

  11. Hi Brett,

    Thanks for sharing your recommendation on these guys- it really sounds like you believe in what they have to offer :) I’m at the stage where I’ve trying to leverage my time as much as possible so that I have more time for start-up projects and diversification of businesses..so this sounds helpful.

    I agree that its not too much promotion you’ve got going on- I’ve owned MS for as long as it’s been available to own, and haven’t seen many promos from you at all. Considering the enormous value that you’re packing into the Market Samurai application for such a low price, I can’t see how others can’t accept a few promo emails every now and then to help with funding/help your users out in their business. Perhaps they’re getting jaded from all the other collective marketing crap they’re being confronted with and then letting it out on the wrong guys!? It happens.

    Anyhow, for the sake of new people reading this- if I can recommend a group to get involved with for people learning from the 30 Day Challenge and using MS, I’d suggest Commission Bluebrint 2.0 and/or Niche Blueprint from a (trustworthy, experienced and helpful) marketer called Steve Clayton. Addmittedly I havent looked at PLUS and I’m sure it’s just as good if not better than 30DC content, but I have used Steve Clayton’s stuff and it is “game changing” for new marketers..

    There that’s my 2c worth for the next month or two, now im getting to work!

    Thanks to the MS guys for an incredible product and thanks for the honest recommendation.

    Hi Brent,
    I’ve been purchasing “stuff” online for too many years to remember when I first started. I’m naturally curious by nature and a marketer’s dream. I’ve finally started to take stock and have realised that my problem really is “time”. So your latest blog on outsourcing couldn’t have been more timely for me. Like others here I have developed blinkers to bypass the incredible volume of promos I receive every day, however because MS is such a quality product I’m more than happy to look at a promo from Noble. Unlike others here I don’t begrudge you trying to make a quid. In fact the reason I’ll try the $1 10 day trial is because you gave me a choice of links. Commission to you or vendor direct and no comm to you. I like your honesty and will go through your link. I also like how you have prepared us for the ultimate $ spend. Keep up the excellent work.
    Cheers

    I find it amusing that many people seem to be putting the team at market samurai down for there promotional sales but if you look at how it is written it also provides an affiliate link and a normal link. Why can’t people just accept Brent is finding good sources of information that he considers would go well with what we have learned with market samurai and 30DC and 30DC Plus. Brent may be making some money off it but seriously. How much money do these guys make of MS alone, I am sure that is not a capital venture idea and more to give us access to resources at a discounted rate and unfortunately he has just found a couple in a row so they have taken priority on the blog. Then people would not be complaining as much, keep up the good work!

  14. joshua and peter (above) are spot on with their comment about your honesty!!!…a choice between going direct or thro MS….

    no one else promoting 3rd party products offers that!!!

    for that reason alone and my trust in MS and your integrity…i will trial the offer…thro your link…

    have a great vacation Brent…u’ve earned it!!!

  15. Whilst analyzing one product we are being pointed towards another. Which one would you recommend as the better one and I’ll go with that? I have no doubt as to the merits of the outsourcing one but surely as part of the present course where the fundamentals of it are included in the course not having to go explore another one

  16. To those people complaining about receiving an aff promo offer, instead of complaining, perhaps you should take note.

    Brent and the MS crew have developed an awesome product, provided it at a reasonable price and backed it up with great tutorials. In my eyes they have build a truck load of trust. Perhaps you should take a leaf out of their book.

    I doubt very much that Brent would recommend something he didn’t believe in.

  17. Happy to take the slap on the chin.

    It was just the 3 in a row that I was commenting on.

    Not been a user that long so its probably ust coincidence.

    BTW, I agree with the comments on Commission Blueprint and Steve Clayton.

    Excellent value for a newbie.

  18. The pdf’s in the outsourcing method are the worst written ebooks ever you can’t have read them if you have promoted them.

    Not only is the use of English appaling, obviously outsourced to the lowest bidder and not proof written the information is just plain wrong.

    You don’t need to spend “$6 – $10 for “mid quality” articles I have writers who produce great content for $1.

    The whole product is just bad value.. come on guys you can do better than that… if you think I am harsh here you should read what I said about this product on my blog… save you money!!

  19. Just a note to remember that while MS was introduced during a 30DC a few years ago I use your tool for clients in standard website/seo/sem development. I don’t need any of these schemes you all look at I just want to do a good job for my clients, find ways of helping them focus their content targets, ways of getting it published, bld creation, etc. I know you have a big slant on the niche, but if you’d keep your eyes open to the broader resource that people might be using your tool for a little focus there would be kindly appreciated as well.

  20. I totally agree. I seldom receive promotional email from the samurai team and I in fact find those products that they recommend useful compared to those numerous junky emails received from other marketers that I don’t even bother to open.

  21. 21

    I got the $1 membership. What a waste of time. What did I receive? Tons of upsells…the newsletter which contained no specific information…nothing.

    They give you no value for those $1. Waste of money.

    My mistake…I actually got all the modules just it seems they were added a bit late.

    Sorry.

  22. Thanks Mark and Darko, I was just about to give this one a shot, as I’m really stuck myself as well with the outsourcing/scared from all the bad stories, so I didn’t try it myself yet…Also spending 10 hours a day in front of my pc so such a course would really have been helpful…:/

    Darko replied:

    Here’s quick advice for you:

    1) Get Jon Jonas ‘replace myself’ course
    2) Get full time outsourcers from getafreelancer.com also
    3) Realize it might take you trial & error (some ppl call this hard work :P ) to find a good person.

    Anyway, you can hire good people that will write excellent articles for 2 bucks. More expensive = better does not apply here very often.

  23. My opinions on the previous comments and outsourcing:

    1. I have been with MS for almost or over a year now, and I can only remember three times Brent has sent any promotional emails. Therefore, I too, am surprised by the comments about the promotions.

    2. I ran a business for 8 years, and it wasn’t till the last 2 years that I really started to hire and outsource. If I had done that the entire 8 years my business would have really taken off. I got so much more done that last year than I think I did the previous 7 years all together. Having help will really grow your business faster. Having said that…

    3. Before you outsource, you really should have a good understanding of your business and an operational manual/plan/system, whatever you want to call it. For example, I took a year working on my website to first figure out what works and get a system together, so that way I can then outsource and give written step-by-step instructions and tracking spreadsheets to my freelancers.

    If you outsource before you have a system that works, you will be wasting money on trials that may not work out. In addition, your freelancers will appreciate your organization and written instructions.

    My opinions based on past experiences running a business and outsourcing.

    On
    Darko replied:

    How wrong you are. I recommend you start outsourcing (on a small scale) just to see how it’s going.

    So don’t wait till ‘you have a system that works’ to start outsourcing…try doing it but on a small scale.

    Anyway, the other points were good :)

    On
    Emily replied:

    I agree to start on a small scale. But my point was don’t go full force into it. Know what you are doing first and have a system, which will include testing the outsourcing too. I mean, you don’t want to jump into anything without testing it first, or jumping full into it. You will make mistakes, but you don’t want to make big costly mistakes.

    Thank you for calling me out on this.

  24. Outsourcing is a great idea for creating multiple blogs for multiple streams of income, but for the dedicated person with 1 site I would rather used Traffic Bug and Market Samurai and maybe just outsource article writing if need be.

  25. 25

    I haven’t read a blog post in months because i rather use the time more productive, today i broke that record. and here i was reading a sales copy again. : ) just proves my point. Either we are creating product or making other people money, which one is more profitable?
    “Just a thought”

  26. Hi,
    I am thinking about outsource since 3 years ago. I think 24 hours a day aren’t enough for me. But I do not know what to do. I watch the material from M&D. It brightened my mind. Good stuff, and I am learning about it now. Nearly No big thing without outsourcing now for me, because of 24 hours limitation.

    Hope you the best.
