How To Choose a Passive Income Marketing Mentor

Updated on July 17, 2017

Dominic Tay Specializes in Making Money on Amazon

If you want to make money on Amazon selling books, the go to guy is Dominic Tay. He teaches people how to not only get your books up on Amazon, but to position and package them in a way that gets people to buy them.

Dominic Tay is a world renown expert in showing people how to make a full-time income working part-time even if you don't have an advanced degree in business or marketing.

He spent thousands of dollars on seminars and get-rich quick schemes and eventually learned they don't work. That's why he developed a system that does take effort, but only part-time and can replace your job if you put the effort into it.

Then, it will free you up to make even more money or spend time with your family, friends, doing the things you love.

Dominic Tay shares his system both online and offline. So, if writing is your thing, or you are not tech-savvy and don't want to mess with SEO and websites, his method is a great way to make money online without being the tech expert or having some secret formula. He makes it very clear that the steps are simple, they just need to be followed.


Three Business Rules To Live By

The three most important things I learned from Dominic Tay in addition to the book insights are below:

1. Treat business like a business not a hobby.

Don't just do it when you feel like it or when you are in the mood. To be successful, you need to manage and run it all the time. You need to invest and commit to your success.

2. Success can be simple, but most of the time it's not easy.

You can make more money in less time, but that principle is one of cutting down the learning curve. Dominic Tay teaches you how to cut the learning curve but at the same time put in the effort to cut the time. By doing both, you will save time, money and get to where you want to be in much less time.

So, to accomplish this, you have to get the right mindset. You have to get your focus off of video games or partying. You have to turn off the TV and do what you need to do. That all comes with mindset. Focus on what you want to accomplish and put aside the things that keep you from succeeding. Then you'll be on the right track.

3. Figure out who in your life is on your side and wants you to succeed

Then, get away from the toxic people in your life. Get away from those who would bring you down and those who would hold you up. Find positive people and allies who want you to succeed and are not getting in your way. Surround yourself with positive, upbeat, and helpful people.

Online Revenue Options

If you're looking for a mentor to get you online with web hosting, SEO, and other digital and direct marketing needs, one of the best guys out there is Peng Joon. He has a large selection of products and services.

One of his better points is you need to stop trading time for money. When you trade your time one on one, you'll run out of time. But, if you then trade your time in a group setting... you will make more money. But, eventually, even then you'll run out of time. However, if you record your training, set up a website, webinars, video trainings, you are no longer trading time for money. That's what Peng Joon does for himself and others. He teaches you how to automate websites and trainings. There's no limit at that point. So, if you have a skill set you want to pass on and you're tired of trading time for money in a job or doing one on one coaching, Peng Joon's program could be right for you.

Who's the best mentor for you?

The answer is it depends. Dominic Tay has a system to get you up and running pretty quickly. He shows you how to get your book published and online. He shows you how to monetize it. If you're ready to get moving fast and want to get your ideas and thoughts to market, he's a really good choice.

If you have a system that you want to get online and do webinars and have websites, Peng Joon is a really good choice. However... if you want to do both, start with Dominic Tay and then go see Peng Joon afterwards. And, build your online empire.

      I've been looking into getting started with a passive income, and I'm really happy I saw this article! Thank you so much!

      Thanks for commenting. The thing to understand is there's a system. It is hard to be a trailblazer or learn any real skill on your own. I teach swordfighting like Three Musketeers. There are lots of books out there... and people try to learn on their own and can't compete because they don't have a master mentor. If you learn a system from a mentor who's been there... you save thousands of hours of struggling. That's the point of my article. Thanks so much for reading it.

      I think it would be really hard to successfully sell books on Amazon these days, so many people are doing it. Seeking out an expert to help you is great advice. Nice article!
