013 No More Freebie Guy, Mailing lists, Bounce Rate and Defining your Purpose/Goals

Leslie Samuel Podcasts 9 Comments

In today’s episode, I cover the following…

ChangeCan you believe it? After today, there’s no more “Freebie Guy”. Yep, as you can see I’ve changed my website domain from TheFreebieGuy.net to www.LearningWithLeslie.com – Permanently.


  1. The “Freebie Guy” is no longer relevant to my goals.
  2. All these names (and URLs) can confuse people.
  3. I want you to know me, just as I am!

Then, I answer two questions:

Andre calls in to ask what incentives I recommend giving to get people to join your mailing list. My recommendations were Free eBooks, Reports, Videos, Webinars, or any other niche specific item that delivers value to your target audience.

Tai calls in to ask what bounce rate was and what levels of bounce rate you should expect to see. I explain that Bounce rate is the percentage of single-page visitors. It gives you an idea of how “sticky” your website is, and I also give some examples from my websites.

John calls in to voice his enthusiasm for the Learning With Leslie Mastermind and I also read a comment left by Tai on the same subject.

Then I talk about the first section of the 4 Hour Work Week, which is what we are reading for the Mastermind Group. For the first week, the goal is to get up to chapter 2.

Question for You

The question for this week is the following: WHY do YOU want to Make Money Online? What is your goal behind that goal? Is it for personal reasons? To help others? Let me know by leaving a comment or by calling the hotline at 888 835 – 2414.

Here are my goals:

  • To help out family
  • To help friends and others in need (Especially young people)
  • To Change the world

I share some of my other goals, even when it comes to my Ministry. My wife and I are musicians and we like to travel and share God’s love with others. You can check out our ministry over at www.AdonaiMusic.com.

I think that’s all. Hope you enjoy!

  1. After many months without a computer, I am finally back online – just in time to learn about all of the new things that you have going on, Leslie….I really like the changes to your website….particularly the new name and the new picture….After such a long lapse, I am planning to start back with the 7 Day Bootcamp & work my way up to all that you are currently working on …. I look forward to learning with you.

    1. Glad to know you are back online Linda. Yep, a lot has changed. Glad to know you like the changes (even with the picture, lol). Yep, the bootcamp is a good way to get yourself back into the groove of things. Hoping to see you around more now 😉

  2. OK you have progress beyond the freebie, Wonderful. Then Why are your videos from 4 years ago still on You Tube? Would not that be a little misleading? Please correct that.

    1. Because that’s the way the internet works. If I were to go through to delete everything I’ve put online that no longer applies, I’d be wasting a bunch of time.

Be AWESOME! Leave a comment :)
