What's keeping you from getting started today online? I hear from many people that have an idea about what they want to do, but they just have not pulled the trigger. In this episode, we hear from a listener named “Bob” (not his real name) regarding his interest in the photography niche. Bob's been waiting for more than a year to get started.
Here are the highlights of the things I have shared in this episode:
- Sharing an iTunes review from Mexico and Facebook feedback from “Bob” which may resonate with you.
- A short background on photography from equipment to skill to the monetary aspects involved, and why this niche is great for online business and why it is commercially viable.
- How you can compete in a crowded niche despite the current competition.
- The best way to get started and launch your ideas once and for all so you can take over the internet with your presence.
- Sharing what I find as the most powerful part of the Best Year Ever course from Michael Hyatt: The key thing in making our dreams come true is the understanding why those goals are important to you. What is your why?
- Our featured tools for this week’s tech tip: the Buffer app, a tool for scheduling your social media posts, and Bulk Buffer and Bulk Publish which works with Buffer for scheduling of multiple posts.
- Fortune Cookie of the Week: The limit to your abilities is where you place it.

Episode 095 Getting Started Today Online Transcript
This week on the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast I talk to you about a message I got from a long time listener. I want to talk about what he had to say, answer his message on the air, and do it in a way that I think might help you as you go into the new year.
All this and more on the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast…
It’s almost Christmastime here in the United States, we are just fired up and ready to go. I have the entire house lit up with lights, maybe I’ll throw a picture of that in the show notes so you can see what the house looks like all lit up. I have kids, kids like lights, so we have lights all in the front year. It looks pretty cool. The whole street is lit up, it’s kind of a tradition on our street to light up the house.
We have the Christmas tree up and I have completed all of the shopping that I have to do, particularly the gifts for my wife are wrapped and under the tree. I’m very excited about that. I really like shopping for her, but I’m very concerned about getting it right. Not that she’s very demanding, but it’s important to me. Every year I enjoy / stress out over that a little bit until it’s done, and this year I got it done well in time. I’m very excited about that.
I wanted to talk a couple of pieces of feedback that I got. The first one is an iTunes review that I got from Mexico. A little shout out to those of you that are listening to the podcast in Mexico. It always amazes me when I take the time to look at my stats at Libsyn. Libsyn is the host for the podcast data files – shout out to Rob and Elsie and everybody over at LIbsyn, they do an amazing job for me and have since 2009. It amazes me the number of countries that listen to the podcast. I have at least one download from 129 countries, that’s kind of amazing. In the whole world there are approximately 200 countries – it changes, I think the current number is 190-something. So most countries in the world have someone, at least one person, who has listened to at least one episode of the Late Night Internet Marketing Podcast. I thank you for that.
Particularly, I want to thank this listener in Mexico who took the time to go over to iTunes and leave a review on iTunes. I really appreciate that. The listener is listed as Eddie Brody from Mexico.
Eddie, thank you so much for listening to the show. Thank you for the five star review.
Here’s the deal. Five star reviews on iTunes really help us with ranking in iTunes. When people go to iTunes and they’re trying to discover podcasts they find the Late Night Internet Marketing podcast more often when it has more reviews, more listeners, more subscriptions. If you’d like to go over the iTunes and leave a review, we love those reviews and they help us be discovered by other listeners. The more people that listen to this podcast the more people that I can reach, help, and do whatever.
I really do appreciate it. Eddie, thank you so much for the five star review, very much appreciated.
By the way, while you’re over in iTunes, you may not realize it but I have launched a second podcast. Actually, I’ve revitalized it. I started the podcast in 2014, it failed to launch but it’s back. It’s called the Internet Marketing Minute and you can find it at LateNightIM.com/IMM. You will find that it is a short format podcast. Completely different content than what’s on this podcast, so it’s not just a digest of what we talk about on here every week, it’s actually a whole different podcast. Right now I’m going through a whole series on what is internet business and why I recommend affiliate marketing, going through lots of different beginning affiliate topics on that podcast. Eventually that podcast will turn into a thing where I deal with listener feedback, one question per show. Kind of like Ask Pat, if you’re familiar with that show, sort of similar to that, although different in a lot of ways that you’ll hear when you go and listen to the show. By all means, go over there and check that out at LateNightIM.com/IMM.
