James McAllister ~ The blogger, author, investor and entrepreneur!
Welcome to my Thursday series. It’s another exciting ride today. Before you read further, be sure to check out the bloggers who have been here before. Click here for more.
Today I want to introduce you to James McAllister. James is not only a blogger, but also an author, investor, and entrepreneur.
James started blogging at the age of 11 and launched his first web business at the age of 14. Starting at an early age gave James lots of time to figure out what areas of business he enjoyed, and which areas he should stay away from.
By the time James graduated high school, he was making a full time living online and now teaches other entrepreneurs how to do the same thing.
How It Began For James
It took 3 years for James to transition from a hobby blogger to a business blogger. One day while casually browsing the internet, James ran into a video from Lisa Irby of 2CreateAWebsite, opening his eyes to the possibilities of making money online. James watched as many of her videos as he could and purchased web hosting and a domain name that same weekend.
James spent two years working on various websites, and gained an incredible amount of knowledge through those experiences. While his earlier websites never ended up making him much money, James learned invaluable lessons that helped bring him where he is today.
This ended up changing his life forever, as he previously had no idea what he’d want to do in terms of a career. When James began making money online, the answer became clear.
What Makes James Unique?
James knew when he launched Help Start My Site that there would be a lot of competition, and he had to do things differently if he wanted to stand out in an industry of established experts.
James is unique because he is very direct with the way he approaches things. He will tell you the truth, even if it’s not what you want to hear. He understands that you only get results by doing what works, and he’s not afraid to hurt your feelings when it comes to speaking the truth. He would rather you accept things as they are now than figure out that you’ve been lied to down the road, which only ends up hurting you more in the long run.
Many people find his blunt approach to business a bit too harsh for their tastes, but James does not care. James says that people that cannot accept the truth won’t last in the world of business. Those who see things how they are are the ones who will end up seeing real results, and those are the types of people James tries to connect with.
How James Suggests Building Your Business
James says that if you want to become extremely successful online, you’ve got to focus the bulk of your time on the area of your business that makes the most money. For most people, the majority of their income comes from promoting relevant products to their email list, so it’s very important to build a solid business back end.
According to James, the best way to make money from your blog is to use it as a tool to get people onto your email list and to do the selling there. A solid autoresponder sequence will boost the relationship with your subscribers automatically, as well as automatically promote products to new people every day. This provides you a solid, steady income as most of the hard work is handled for you!
By building a solid business back end, James says that you can make more money than others with twice your audience while providing a better experience at the same time.
James As An Author
James wanted to go above and beyond just blogging, which is exactly why he just released his fifth book, “The Young Entrepreneur’s Guide to Business, Finance, and Life.” This book is aimed for people in or near his age group who are looking to become entrepreneurs, or for anybody looking to grow their business.
Rather than just covering business topics, the book also shares valuable information on many other important topics in a young entrepreneur’s life, such as personal finance, investing, and moving into the real world.
While the book goes against the conventional way of thinking, James’ book is a great resource for anybody looking to become an entrepreneur – regardless of your background. The value this book provides is incredible and is bound to aid any aspiring entrepreneur in their business ventures.
