A Simple, 4-Step Plan to Get 100 People to Register for Your First Webinar


“I want to do webinars, but I don’t know how to get people to show up.”

I hear this all the time.

And it’s heartbreaking.

Why? Because I know the massive impact doing webinars has had on my business.

In fact, in the past 3 years, webinars have been the #1 best thing I’ve done in my business.

They are the most highly leveraged use of my time.

Webinars have built my reputation as an expert and authority.

Webinars allow me to build relationships with thousands of prospective clients and customers at scale.

And webinars even allowed me to quadruple my email list in 7 months.

Think of all the time you’ve wasted going to “networking events” and cocktail parties.

Think of all the boring conversations, the mind-numbing chit-chat, the business cards you toss in a drawer and never do anything with.

Wouldn’t you like to have that time back?

Guess what? You can.  [Read more…]

How I Quadrupled My Email List in 7 Months


Quick question – wanna get more leads and sales?

Sure you would …. just about everyone needs more of those, right?

But it’s not easy. If you’re a small business owner or service professional like most of my readers, then you have to find new leads, close them, and then actually do the work!

There aren’t enough hours in the day.

Well, it turns out there’s a much better way. It’s about shifting from a “one to one” model to a “one to many” model.

In this article, I want to share a new strategy I’ve used this year to quadruple my email list, build my reputation as an expert, forge relationships with tens of thousands of people at once, bring in hundreds of new customers and clients, and most importantly attract multiple six figures of revenue to my business.

I’ve never shared this material before, but it’s been such a game-changer for me that I had to share it.

New live webinar: “3 Game-Changing Networking Strategies for Turning Relationships into Revenue” (this Friday, 11/1, 1pm PST)

John CorcoranHow many times have you heard someone say, “Networking is so important! It’s who you know!Or how often has someone said “you just need to hand out more business cards”?

I hate that. They know it’s not helpful, right?

Most people suck at networking, so they give you vague and unspecific tips like “go to networking events” and “do informational interviews.”

I want to show you a much more practical and effective system for networking. A system that actually WORKS. And one that isn’t so complicated or time-consuming you won’t do it. This system will help you make the income you deserve.

This Friday, I’m giving a live webinar: “3 Game-changing Networking Strategies for Turning Relationships into Revenue.”

You’ll learn:

  • The real reasons most people don’t have a personal network filled with VIPs and top performers.

  • How to establish and nurture real human relationships with VIPs you want to know

  • The exact words you can use to connect with successful people in your field — without sounding like a schmuck or like you’re selling something.

You can sign up using the link below.

I’ll see you on the webinar!

P.S.When you sign up, you’ll also get a free copy of the 52+ page ebook How to Create Your Personal Networking Plan and I will send you additional tips and strategies for using relationships in business.

P.P.S. There will be a recording, but you need to sign up to get it. I will send out a link with the recording after the webinar.

Why I Use and Recommend Productive Flourishing’s Productivity Planners [with video]

NOTE: this article is adapted from a guest post I recently had published on Productive Flourishing. You can check out that post here.

I recently started experimenting with using different planners to organize my days and my week.

For as long as I can remember, I have used a calendar to write down upcoming appointments, projects and tasks I need to work on. I started using a small day planner to write down homework assignments when I was 10.

(Just writing that sentence makes me realize I must have been a really anal 10-year-old.)

This system worked through high school, college and law school. But when I started practicing law, the number of tasks and projects I was working on exploded.

I kept track of the long list of action items I was working on each day by writing them down in a long list on lined notepad paper, with no rhyme or reason or priority assigned to each task.

I would then just cross off each item as I completed it.

Here’s what it looked like:

planner, schedule, calendar, Smart Business Revolution, agenda

I also kept track of timely tasks by entering them on my calendar. For awhile, I even had two calendars – a personal calendar and a work calendar.

It was better than no system at all, but not a very efficient way to manage my day and critical projects.

So I decided to start experimenting with better ways to track my projects.
