Episode 743 – Study Challenge
[00:00:08] Welcome to Screw the Commute. The entrepreneurial podcast dedicated to getting you out of the car and into the money, with your host, lifelong entrepreneur and multimillionaire, Tom Antion.

[00:00:24] Hey everybody, it's Tom here with episode 743 of Screw the Commute podcast. Today, I've got a study challenge for you that can get you a big shout out here on Screw the Commute and the bar is going to be real low, folks. Don't worry. You don't have to go back to take a PhD course to do what I'm going to tell you today. And it's going to help your business and it's going to get you a big publicity bump by getting a shout out here on Screw the Commute. All right. I'll tell you about that in a minute. All right. I hope you didn't miss episode 742. That was increase customer value on that episode. I gave you legitimate and non obnoxious ways to get more money from each customer. In fact, they'll be happy to give you more money if you follow the tips in that episode. Now, of course, any time you want to get to a back episode, you go to screw the commute.com and then slash the episode number that was 742. Increase customer value. Now follow me on TikTok at tiktok.com/@digitalmultimillionaire and grab a copy of our automation book at screwthecommute.com/automatefree.

[00:01:35] All right, let's get to the main event. This is going to be a pretty short episode because I want to give you a time to to do this stuff over the weekend. All right. Here's a study challenge. Actually, it's a study and implement challenge. All right. Because you can study all you want. If you don't do anything, it's not going to help you. And I've set the bar really low. All right. See, I attribute much of my success in the success of my students to a couple things. One of the main ones is increasing their skills, which means less money spent on people that may not care about your success. Now only their success. And then the second thing is persistence. In other words, you're willing to fail and keep trying until you find out what works for you. So in this episode, I'm going to challenge you to do the first one, increase your skill on something, no matter how little. All right. And if you refuse to do this, how do you expect to get some success? All right. If you just cruise through the weekend watching Netflix and barbecue and and doing nothing to help your business, when you could take a few minutes in some cases and make an improvement. Right. If you if you just ignore this all the time, don't cry to me when you're not successful. Oh, no. This Internet stuff doesn't work. No, you're you're you're not working. Okay. So anyway, you do one of these things at least one, and get back to me and I'll give you a big shout out on a future episode.

[00:03:10] And whatever I suggest you do here or you choose to do is going to help, you know? So there's a win win, the three wins. All right. I'm going to give you a couple of things to pick from here, but I have over 400 training episodes out of our 743 total episodes. And you go to if you want to pick something else from what I suggest down below or right here in a moment, you go to screwthecommute.com/training and you can pick from all kinds of stuff. Just listen to one of the episodes and do what it tells you and then tell me about it and you'll get your shout out and you're going to help your business. All right. Here's something to get you started. Remember, anytime you want to get to a back episode, you go to screwthecommute.com, slash, and then the episode number. Now first one and these are in no order but 565 Episode 565 was on Computer Shortcuts. You could listen to that episode, pick a couple shortcuts that make sense for you, and then save hundreds of hours into the future. Now, if you're not willing to do that, unsubscribe from this podcast and go, you know, just do nothing because you're not dedicated to improving your business, you're just hoping you're crossing your fingers. That man is going to fall from the sky.

[00:04:33] All right. You're not even willing to do this, that little tiny thing to help yourself. I don't. I can't help you. All right. Next one is 673. That was on vertical video, which used to be a big taboo. You'd never we'd laugh at people that would accidentally shoot vertical. Right. But now it's all the rage. So I want you to shoot a vertical video. And of course, I want you to report and tell me what you did and what trouble you had. You're going to have trouble on some of these things, but that's the whole thing. You learn. You get past the trouble spot and then it helps you into the future with hundreds of hours. All right. So shoot a vertical video. Hey, a big bonus would be to put it up on Facebook or or on Instagram or TikTok, but shoot a vertical video. That was episode 673. All right. Here's another very simple one. Episode 705 was on Signature Files. Signature files are appended to each one of your emails and a good email program. Now, this is not broadcast email. This is email that you send personally back and forth to customers and prospects and other people and a good email program. You can have multiple signature files and that are customized depending on who you're talking to. If you're talking to a customer, you might have one signature file to upsell them.

[00:06:02] If you're talking to a prospect, you might have a different signature file. If you're talking to one of your vendors, you might have a different signature file. Check out your signature files, make sure you can do multiples, but at least look at, you know, let's look at episode 673 and learn more about what you can do with signature files. Okay, let's see. Now, there's two, two ones here. 271 and 697 were on residual income. Now, if you don't want residual income, I don't know if you should be allowed to cross the street by yourself. All right. This is money that just keeps coming in. It's like an insurance policy for your family. So listen to those episodes. That's 271 and 697. Pick some type of residual income, even if it's a residual recurring income affiliate program, at least pick one and and sign up for it so that you can promote it. You don't have to have all the results in now, but you'll thank me if you start getting regular money coming in. All right, so that's residual income. 621 sounds mean, but it's a copywriting technique called scare tactics. So I want you to come up with a scare tactic. Now, again, I'm not about being obnoxious and rotten and things like that. I mean, in my definition of a scare tactic is I want people to know in no uncertain terms there's consequences to them of not knowing what I know or having what the product that I have.

[00:07:44] So you got to think in your business, what's if I'm helping people, they must not know what I know. But you got to make that that clear to them in your copy and your advertising stuff. So I want you to come up with one scare tactic of the consequences of not knowing what or having your product. All right. That's 621. Gives you all the details on what we're talking about and examples, too. All right. Now, again, if you don't like any of those, go to screwthecommute.com/training. And I think there's about 400 other things to pick from. Okay. I mean, I've been around a long time, folks. I've been through all kinds of physical businesses and digital businesses for the last 29 years, you know, so that's what we call almost three decades. I've been yapping about this stuff and doing it to high levels. So I want that for you. So go there, do something, implement it, and then report it to me and you get a big shout out. So the bar is really low here and no matter what you do, it's going to help you. And just think if you do one of these things a week, just think where your business would be a year from now, or I mean even a couple months from now.

[00:09:01] Right? All right. Now, one of the things you could do is be a great podcast guest, and I happen to have a whole program on that. It's one on one. It's we're introducing this at a discounted price. So there's seven slots left. So check that out at screwthecommute.com/greatpodcastguest and you know this can put you in front of tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of people prospects for your business with a warm introduction. It's not advertising. It won't cost you a nickel to do this other than getting all your infrastructure set up, which is what I teach you on the thing, and how to be a great guest. And it's far, far more than what you just say during the podcast. All these other things that impress the heck out of the host are what gets you referrals and repeat bookings. I've been on some shows as many as 13 times. I've been on one of the top shows in the world twice, plus they put me in their classics, so it's actually three times on on that. So because the things that I do besides the interview. All right, so check that out at screwthecommute.com/greatpodcastguest and I can't wait to shout you out because you did something today. All right. Catch you on the next episode. See you later.
