One of the biggest mistakes all marketers make is they expect big results with small numbers. One of the number one questions I receive is what percent of the people who land on my website should opt in for my information.
Honestly, there are many factors, most of which I have never paid a lot of attention to (my mistake) like
*where the visitors come from
*Value of give away, etc. etc.
For websites, these have been my base number for years, I think I originally got this from Internet Marketer Marlon Sanders.
A good rule of thumb:
If you convert…
– 1%: You are doing “fine”
– 2%: You are doing well
– Anything above 2%: You are doing very well
If you are doing 10%+, you are almost doing “too… Continue reading
I think it was 1997.
I was invited to speak at my first INTERNET Marketing event ever. Yes, I said INTERNET MARKETING. At the time I had two different
monthly membership websites, before anyone had ever heard the term membership website.
One was paying me about $11,000 a month and the other one about $4,000 and that was the topic they wanted me to speak about.
I was excited, but a little nervous. My bread and butter is network marketing that is what I know. I was a newbie to all of this world
wide web stuff. Now that I think about it, I guess everyone was in 1997. ?
I was excited because I had the opportunity to be on the stage with many people that I had studied like Jonathan Mizel, Declan… Continue reading
My granddaughter Chapel loves Shark Tank, she is 7. When I go back to Kentucky we talk about all the different Shark Tank episodes. She reminds me so much of me sometime it is scary, I feel like I can almost read her mind. I think TV shows like Shark Tank and The Profit are part of the world wide entrepreneurial buzz going on. I am excited about the valuable lessons kids can learn from these positive shows.
I have not met an entrepreneur minded person who doesn’t love Shark Tank. I often ask myself what kind of positive impact the show would have had on me if I could have watched Shark Tank when I was a kid instead of Gilligan’s Island.
All any of us can… Continue reading
If you missed the segment and interview with Amazon’s founder Jeff Bezos on 60 minutes last night, it is something that every entrepreneur should see, so here it is:
As many of you know we have been recommending that marketers find a way to tap into the power of Amazon for several years. We always try to practice what we teach and preach. When I first started publishing some of our MLM training manuals on Amazon’s Kindle platform there were only a handful of Kindle books available on Amazon. At the time of this writing there are hundreds, in the near future there will be thousands.
We have been selling some of our training DVD programs, like Confessions of a Network Marketing Millionaire on Amazon for several years.
For the last three to four… Continue reading
I have had several people ask for my opinion on Pure Leverage.
My question to them is as a business opportunity or as a product?
90% say as a business.
So let me sum up my thoughts in one sentence and then I will expand. As a product, Pure Leverage is the best of it's kind in the market, as a business opportunity there are simply too few potential customers for most people to ever make a significant income.
I have been using GVO for hosting, the company behind Pure Leverage, for nearly ten years. They have always offered the best website hosting options for marketers like myself with multiple websites, Now with the introduction of Pure Leverage they offer the… Continue reading
If you have been around Internet Marketing anytime at all, you have heard dozens, if not hundreds or thousands of time, "The Money is in the List". I disagree, the money is in the "relationship" you have with your list.
I personally have many websites and mailing list in specific niches that I have no relationship with, and honestly no interest in. Organic gardening is one of them. Now there is nothing wrong with organic gardening, it is a lucrative niche market, it is just a market I have no real interest in or knowledge about. I have made money in that niche, but it does not really interest me. I am in the process of getting out of many niches and selling off several websites. It has taken me awhile to learn… Continue reading
