Affiliate Marketers Playbook FREE – The Best Product We’ve Launched?

This is the week for the launch of the FREE Affiliate Marketers Playbook! (Click here to grab a copy) This is another one of those weeks that I have several times a year, that I look forward to, and I’m so excited for.

Let me share all about it today…

One of the things we always talk about with our Certified Partners at Internet Profits, is…

Taking Action Every Single Day

…to experience progress forwards, progress every single week.

Now for some people, that progress means laying the foundations, doing the groundwork, and not necessarily yet making money, right? Because sometimes you’ve just got to lay some groundwork.

For other people, that forward progress is generating more leads, is getting more targeted traffic. it is generating and increasing your sales.

But no matter where you’re at in your business, you should make sure what you’re doing and accomplishing every day and every week is progress forward.

Because if your goal is somewhere in the distance, and you’re always taking a step or a leap towards it every single day, eventually you’ll get there.

The problem with most people is they stay still. Or they’re going backwards. Which is the same thing, if you think about it.

So This Week… This Is An Exciting Week!

It’s one of those weeks that I look forward to several times a year.

What am I talking about? We’re launching a new product – the Affiliate Marketers Playbook

We are launching a new sales funnel… Another free plus shipping funnel.

That’s what I believe to be the best kind of offer, the best kind of front-end funnel to…

Attract Your Ideal Customers – Your Ideal Potential Clients

And also the the best way, in my experience, to convert the highest number of targeted visitors into paying customers.

To qualify those buyers better than (in my opinion) the typical digital front end product, or as some people call it a ‘tripwire’…

Are You Creating Content Marketing Assets In Your Business? Eg. Marketing Webinars?

content marketing assets marketing webinars

Are you creating content marketing assets in your business that will work for you for months, even years to come, to get you better results?

Are the things that you’re doing in your business; content that you create, tools that you build or utilize, assets that you create… Are they things that will work for you in your business, long term?

A lot of people create a lot of stuff, and they use it one time, once! And then it just sits there on their computer, never to be used again.

I’ve done it too… And if you think about it, it is absolutely insane! It’s crazy that you’d go through all that work.

Take a marketing webinar, for example. It can take you days, or sometimes weeks to build a high converting webinar presentation. And then people run it once, and then they move on and create something else.

And it’s like, “Why don’t you keep running it?”

One of my mentors, Russell Brunson, was telling me before, how somebody was explaining to him that with stage productions and shows – they take them on tour.

They’ll create a show, and then if it works, and it sells out, and it’s a great show… they will take it on tour, and they will take it around the country.

And sometimes if it’s really popular, then they’ll take it on tour globally!

And it’s the same with your content…

Sales Funnel Strategy That Dooms Most Internet Marketers To Failure

This is the sales funnel strategy, or the components of the sales funnel stages that every online marketing funnel must incorporate in one form or another in order to profitably compete for traffic in today’s marketplace, according to Dean Holland, CEO of Internet Profits Ltd.

Dean starts, “Most internet marketers are doomed to fail, okay? And I’m going to tell you why, right here!

So good morning, by the way. Welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean Holland here, and we are on this journey to Internet Profits HQ right now and…

Your Sales Funnel Strategy Is A Serious Topic!

This is one that’s probably not going to come as a good news for anybody, well not for the majority, especially if they don’t act.

I’ve been in the internet marketing industry full-time since 2009, but I started back in 2004. And so I’ve seen a lot. I’ve been a part of many evolutions in sales funnel strategy over the last 12 or so years in this industry.

We’re at a point where major shifts are taking place, major things are happening. And for those that don’t adapt, for those that don’t move with it…

You Might As Well Just Give Up Now, Because It’s Only Going To Get Worse!

So let me tell you what I’m talking about, so there’s some substance to this claim.

For a long, long time in this industry, even before I was around, it was pretty straightforward in some respects, for people to sell products and make a profit.

I wasn’t able to do it myself because, quite frankly, I just hadn’t figured things out early on in my online marketing career.

But I now know certain people, and hear their stories, and they talk about the good old days when you could just go to Clickbank, choose an affiliate offer, get an affiliate link, set up a Google Ad, and literally drive traffic direct, straight to the Clickbank offer or affiliate offer…

Spending Pennies On Traffic, And Making Dollars Back

…in exchange for pennies that you spend making a dollar back. Having it as simple as that!

Google ad, direct linking to an affiliate offer, no list building, nothing, just straight to that offer.

Now today, over the years, traffic has increased in price, competition for advertising has increased driving the price for a click, up.

So that game is all but over for a lot of industries – certainly for my industry! That’s just not going to fly anymore.

And so I want to share with you…

Small Business Problems? This Is Probably Your Main Business Problem

I was watching a clip last night on YouTube of the Rocky film (Rocky the boxer). And it got me thinking about something last night when I was on the drive home.

So yeah, I was in the office quite late until the early hours of this morning – until about past 1am I think it was by the time we finally got out, because I was running a coaching call.

One thing I realized, as I was driving home after the coaching call, I realized that actually the number one of the many small business problems that all of us (well, most of us) face… is actually ourselves.

Top Of All The Small Business Problems We Face… Is Ourselves

Like… you are literally your number one problem, right?

Let me explain what I mean. A lot of people doubt themselves… procrastinate… keep changing direction… keep jumping from thing, to thing, to thing. Many people fear the failure… or fear the success, and therefore hold themselves back.

And what it comes down to, ultimately, is… YOU are your biggest problem.

If you could only get out of your own way, you could no doubt have a lot greater success, or finally achieve the success that you’re looking for and achieve what it is you’re desiring out of a business.

So today, that’s what I want you to think about.

How many different areas can you to identify, as you go about your day to day life, or every time that you sit down at the computer and you’re striving to build your business…

…Start to identify all the ways in which you’re actually sabotaging your own success.

Or for those of you in the early stages…

In How Many Areas Are You Sabotaging Your Chances Of Success?

One of the biggest small business problems that I used to personally have, and where I was sabotaging my success, is I never stuck at any one thing long enough to actually make it work.

Y’know, I was always jumping from thing, to thing, to thing. I was always running around with this belief that there must be a better way, there must be an easier way…

Get 1000 YouTube Subscribers And Make Money For Free In Your Videos

I have some exciting news to share!

So, if you’re following this, or you have been following previous episodes of The Drive, you’ll know that every day I’ve got this filming rig set up in my car. And every day on the way to the Internet Profits headquarters here in the UK, I talk about and document what it is that’s going on in the business, how things are going, and share the lessons that I’m learning along the way.

Well this week we crossed a mile stone when we finally managed to…

Get 1000 YouTube Subscribers

…on our channel. And I want to share some of the things that I’ve learned, and some of the things that we’ve done and tried, that I feel has helped to get 1000 YouTube subscribers. And how we’re now hoping to really start to accelerate that at an even faster pace.

So let me just be clear on a few things. This didn’t happen overnight – this wasn’t an immediate thing. And to be honest, until about 10 days ago we weren’t really doing anything to try and encourage subscriptions on the YouTube channel, encourage people to subscribe.

So I’ll share with you…

What We Did Over The Last 10 Days To Really Accelerate That…

…and fill you in on some of the data and statistics.

So, first things first. You should know that we have now done over 70 episodes. So this one right now is probably I think, episode 72 (but don’t quote me on that, I might be one or two out.)

But we’ve crossed over 70 episodes. Now bear in mind I do these every weekday, Monday to Friday. So I do five episodes a week.

The only reason, for me at least, that I’m able to keep that consistency is because…

I’ve Engineered This ‘Way’…

…where I can create the content without actually having to really go out of my way to do it.

I’m driving to the office anyway, and I’m always planning in my own head what’s going on, or what’s happening. So all I’m really doing is talking to myself here. And you get to kind of be like a fly on the window, if you like.

We’ve done over 70 episodes, right? That equates to Monday to Friday, 70 episodes, what’s that? Like 14, 15 weeks of doing The Drive series.

So it’s taken 14 weeks to reach this point. You could say, “Wow! That’s a long time!” But really…

Benefits Of Outsourcing For Small Businesses And SoloPreneurs

This is a short piece from Dean Holland on the benefits of outsourcing for small businesses; when you should outsource business tasks and why. Dean starts by explaining that…

“When It Comes To Any Task Running A Small Business, You’ve Got Two Choices”

Yesterday I was having a conversation, and I want to pass this on to you.

Hopefully this helps you in future when you’re thinking about certain things that you’re going to be doing, or might be doing, or are considering doing, in your business.

Ultimately you have two choices when it comes down to any task in your business.

You Either…

  • Do it yourself, or
  • Have someone else do it for you.

That’s it, right? There’s no other way.

So when it comes down to this decision, there’s obviously a few things that are going to be taken into consideration, right?

Obviously a lot of it is going to depend on where you’re at in your business, what stage you’re at.

And also, when considering the benefits of outsourcing, you have to…

Think About What Available Time You Have

You have to think about the skills or knowledge that you have.

For example, there are going to be some things that you know how to do, you enjoy doing them, and you have the time to do them, okay? In which case you could do it yourself.

But there are going to be other things where you’re like…

“Okay, I want to do that for my business, but I have no idea how to do it. And to learn how to do that thing is going to take me a considerable amount of time.”

So when I’m in that situation…

How To Get More Followers And Buyers From Any Social Media Platform

Would you like to know how to get more followers on social media platforms and turn them into buying customers? Here are some great free tips from my business mentor, Dean Holland:

This weekend I was thinking about something. It followed on from something I was saying to some customers and students of ours on one of our programs last week.

And that is to think about;

“Are You Making It Easy & Simple For People To Find And Follow You?”

So let me explain what I mean.

If I think back to when I first got started online, when I first discovered that people were making money on the internet. It was actually in 2004.

But I didn’t make any money or really experienced any progress or anything really until the end of 2008.

So you may wonder what was happening during that time? Well, I was buying lots and lots of products, y’know.

I’d buy ebooks, video courses, software plugins, loads and loads of different stuff.

But when I think back on it…

I Didn’t Actually Have Anything Substantial Or Tangible Online

There was no presence. There was nothing really.

  • I didn’t have a blog, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have a YouTube channel, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have a Facebook page, like I have now.
  • I didn’t have any active social media presence.

So when you think about the way in which the Internet and the world as a whole has evolved into the current day. It’s in a position where it is a very social environment.

You only have to look over the last decade – the massive advances and the uprising of social media platforms.

They Have Now Taken Over The Internet

Billions and billions of people across the world are using social media platforms actively.

Even if you think about television… Reality TV, ‘social television’, has taken the world by storm.

You have talent shows, you have things like Big Brother where they take members of the public and put them in a house and surround them with cameras for weeks on end.

And people people sit there fascinated just watching people live in a house!

It’s The Same For Your Business

People like to follow people.

Think about your own habits online. Do you follow other people?…

Evaluating Sales Leads And Customers Over A Period Of Time

Dean Holland CEO of Internet Profits reveals the huge benefits to affiliate marketers and product owners of focusing upon evaluating sales leads and customers over a certain period of time.

Do you ever have those weeks where it just seems like the days are passing by, and even though you’re busy with everything and moving forwards, it just sometimes feels like;

Where’s The Progress? What’s Happening?

I think the only reason I feel like this is because we are seeing progress, everything awesome is happening.

Over the last week since we publicly launched The Perfect Offer funnel for example, tens of thousands of dollars have been generated using it – a couple of hundred customers, two/three hundred customers.

I think, right now, each customer that we basically give a free product to, is…

Probably Worth Over A Hundred Dollars To Us

It’s dropped slightly now because we had some high ticket sales early on. And whilst we’ve been getting those every day, the volume of those was higher in the first few days for some reason.

But it just goes to show really that – when it comes down to sales, when it comes down to your business – I don’t think (personally for me at least) that evaluating sales leads, analysing, gauging and what’s happening, based off one day of sales, is…

Not A Smart Thing!

You can have a day where your sales were really high, higher than your average, higher than the standard day. And then you see lower, lower sales volume the next day. You can panic, looking at it day by day – oh my gosh, everything’s amazing, and then oh my gosh, no, what’s happening?

But if I look at it as more of an average over time, you start to see what’s really happening – what are those customers worth in your business?

And then, over a period of time – what’s a customer worth after seven days? What’s a customer worth after thirty days? What’s a customer worth after sixty days?

Y’know – What Are The Averages?

And we start to average it out over that time period, and you start to see, well, this is what I can afford to spend to acquire a customer into that sales funnel…
