How Live Broadcasting Works - 3 Simple Steps
I remember my first live broadcast, I was sweating bullets at 100 miles per hour the sweat on my forehead and even gel on my hair was starting to ascend it’s way down to my legs like it was some kind of Olympic snowboard race…
In a matter of moments I’d hit the “Go Live” Button on My Facebook Group and sitting on the back of my mind is this looming thought…
1,000’s are about to see me...Live!
Right out of the gates I said a few words about internet marketing and then paused for a quick 3 seconds I kid you not, and then kept going. From that point forward, I mustard up the confidence and flow in my words where I didn’t have trouble speaking in front of people…
It blew me away. My presentation on how to create a passive income with affiliate marketing was a success. Now, you’re like, how can I do it though?
In a step-by-step process, here’s how for free:
STEP 1. Choose A Platform to Live Broadcast On.
You have TONS of platform options to choose from, here are just a few:

STEP 2: Get Your Words Out.
The last step is either showing your face on screen, voice(if it’s radio or podcast), or share screen, and voicing what you have to say.
Obviously, it’s important that you do your research before hand and prepare some notes together so you know what to say and what the topic of conversation will be on. Otherwise, you can also just go live and ramble about something unplanned which has its place.
Prospering In Times Of Economic Collapse
The great Wall Street collapse of 1929, people losing their jobs, markets crashing, stocks rising, does that sound familiar?
For awhile now we've been living through economic recessions and every time you're looking at a risk of:
- Losing your job
- Becoming financially in turmoil
- Plucking your hair out!
OK, that last one will vary from person to person but point being you need to BE READY! As of the time I'm writing this we're hit now with the Corona Virus, quarantined like a bunch of animals from the rest of the world - your friends and family...your J-O-B.
Take it from me, my quick backstory is this...
I was stuck at a 9-5 job with no way to move forward anymore, I was underpaid, undervalued, I broke out of a love relationship, a 3+ year college student(University and Community), not to mention all the damn certifications, forklift, Confined space, CPR(all at the time)...
Anyways, the company went under, I was involuntarily laid off with 30+ other people and back to unemployment benefits I went for the second time.
Good thing I was preparing before I got let go. I heard from a good friend of mine that people were making money from the internet:
- Real Estate
- Affiliate Marketing
Everything! That last bullet point is what I currently do, and you don't have to own your own product, you can simply promote another person's product and when a person buys, you get paid put a commissions...
And did I mention you can legitimately and realistically make money while you sleep? Want me to show you? I made a special video that shows you how you can make a passive in one business with affiliate marketing here if you'd like to check it out.
Now's the time to turn it around and invest your time into building a financial asset that will work for YOU for many years to come, I'm talking residual passive income.
The traditional path is no longer a guarantee, students from college, people leaving high school, moms, Dad, Everyone is turning to the internet this day and age to make money. In fact, they've been able to eventually leave their jobs and work completely from home....
And yes its possible, don't shut down so fast. According to shiftelearning, Learning through e-learning typically requires you 40%-60% LESS employee time than it would take learning the same kind of material in a traditional classroom.
Amazing right? It also helps that you can make these live broadcasts on the web and make money doing it. It's your turn to take a piece of the internet pie!

But it’s all for the best. You can clear out any doubt your audience may have about you or an existing product/service or business opportunity…
