The Unpleasant Truth About The Internet Marketing Business World

Internet Marketing Business

Some of you are not going to be ready to hear this message. But it’s the truth about the internet marketing business, and it’s time for me to share it.

Hey guys, what’s going on? It’s Dean here of course, coming to you live from Cyprus here just on the beach. Hardly anyone around. It’s like 6:00 in the morning, and it’s amazing.

Internet ProfitsI’ve been sitting here for for a little while now, just reflecting about everything. Reflecting about life, reflecting about the internet marketing business, and about how much things have changed.

There was a time in my life – and it wasn’t that long ago – where I couldn’t afford to be here. I couldn’t afford to fly, or to go on vacations. I couldn’t afford anything really, other than to just exist.

And over the years… gosh, over the last nine years, all of that’s changed. But it hasn’t been easy.

And I want to talk about…

The Real Truth About The Internet Marketing Business

Because no one really does. No one really talks about the reality behind this internet marketing business.

Because the truth is; online marketing and the internet, and using it for the ability to grow business, can change your life dramatically, like it has mine.

For a young guy that left left school at 16, with no real qualifications, no real direction in life, not knowing what he wanted to do… to now sitting here on this beach. It’s just incredible!

So what is the truth then? Well the reality is that now, and for the rest of my life in my business… it’s time to take a huge stand against…

Anyone That Pushes Or Touts Get-Rich-Quick Garbage

There are different sectors and different people within the internet marketing space. And you need to understand that there really is no such thing as get-rich-quick here.

When you know what you’re doing. And when you have a proven process, and you have all the right things in place… can you make a lot of money relatively quickly? Yes, absolutely!

But there’s like a timeline of things that have to take place. You have to learn… you have to understand enough… you have to know what’s going on…

The Magnetic Secret To Build A Successful Online Business

Successful Online Business

There’s this one small thing that you can do differently today, that will magnetically start to build a successful business online for you. This changed Dean Holland’s life 13 years ago, and it’s just happened again to him. Time to share it right here, with you…

“Something happened to me yesterday and it reminded me of something that I also did a couple of years ago, and it’s really refreshing.

So I want to actually share what this is, because I think this is going to help you get better results in your business.

For me it was one of those things that I did years ago, that finally allowed me to start seeing success. And actually…

Yesterday, I Did It Again, And It Feels Amazing!

And immediately, your audience relates with you, resonates with you, and supports you. And that’s what I want for you in your successful online business too.

So I want to share something that happened yesterday, and it really took me back. I remember when I was first starting to try and make money online, way, way back now, like 13 years ago.

There was a four-year period where…

I Just Completely Messed Up

I was buying and trying everything. Loaded up five credit cards, two bank loans, got over $60K’s worth of debt by the time I was in my mid-twenties.

But the biggest thing about that – one of the biggest lessons I learned – was during that whole time, because I was so afraid of the mess I got myself into, I didn’t tell anyone. So like, nobody knew.

It wasn’t until I got my first mentor, joined my first coaching program and got my first mentor… This guy said to me (he’s now a good friend, Alex…) he said to me, “Dean, it’s time that you were open, transparent and honest, and shared exactly what you’ve been going through with the rest of the world?”

This was a really scary thought at the time. Because I think, particularly in the ‘make money online’ space and the ‘home business’ space, everybody conveys their success. Everyone shares their wins. Nobody generally, especially 10 years ago…

No One Was Ever Talking About Failure

Nobody was sharing how bad things were for them. Nobody was sharing how much they were failing, right?

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…

The Most Important Sales Funnel Metric – Average Cart Value

Discover why this is the most important sales funnel metric, that so many internet marketers tend to overlook, to their cost.

The big news of the day is… And this is kind of a little too early to get too excited, but…

I Really Do Like To Go Off The Data

…that I see and feel my gut instinct my gut instinct is rarely wrong. In fact, gut instincts are rarely wrong for most people.

So we opened up… after weeks of optimization and after months of building and creating… we opened up a brand new offer, with our brand new sales funnel behind it, to our Certified Partners two days ago – less than two days ago, 36 hours ago.

And we ran the numbers yesterday, just to see like what’s happening. Now don’t get me wrong, we haven’t had a serious amount of leads into the funnel. Only, I think, five or six hundred leads entered the funnel in the in the first 24 hours or so.

But What I’m Excited By, Is The Numbers That We’re Seeing

The most important sales funnel metric ultimately, for me at least… There’s a lot of people that get hung up on, “What’s the conversion rate?”

The conversion rate to me is just a vanity sales funnel metric. Does conversion rate really matter?

What really matters is… What is a buyer worth? Okay? So, how much is a customer spending?

We Have A Sales Funnel Metric We Call ‘ACV’

…which is ‘average cart value’. So, what average cart value means is, how much has a customer spent by the time they’ve completed your front-end sales funnel.

Basically, to put it in simple terms, after they’ve ordered that front-end offer, that first thing, and then seen the upsells that you presented, and they’ve basically finished that initial sales cycle, how much did that customers spend? Or how much are your customers spending on average, after going through that?

And here’s the exciting news already.

In the first 24 hours, having done five or six hundred leads through the sales funnel so far, the average cart value for the initial front-end sales funnel is… I think it was like thirty to thirty three dollars.

This Sales Funnel Metric Is Pretty Exciting!

Because whenever you start seeing numbers like that, then I know we have got a seven figure sales funnel on our hands here…

FREE “The Perfect Offer” Method And A “Done-For-You” Digital Business

Launching The Perfect Offer for FREE;

“How To Get A Consistent Stream Of Cash-In-Hand Buyers For ANY Offer… Even If Nobody’s Ever Heard Of You”

Yesterday was a big day in the history of the company. An historic day to be honest.

It was like the the beginning of a new chapter, the start of a new era. We unveiled a lot of the new stuff yesterday to our Certified Partners. And the reaction was as great as I’d hoped, if not maybe even better.

Everybody Was So Excited (About The Perfect Offer)

…when they saw everything. Some new front end offers, well, some new front end products, upsells, sales funnels, some new back-end stuff.

We gave our Partners new access to their new members area, where we can just basically really deliver even more value and help people in such a greater way.

You see, one of the things I’ve come to learn over the years is that…

Value Isn’t Equated To The Amount Of Content

…that you give people.

I made a mistake over the years, and that was to associate the amount of value you’re giving with the amount of content you’re giving – not necessarily what was in that content, or the structure of that content.

And so, one of the things that we’ve done, and that we’ve been building for the last six months or so, is this process for our Certified Partner Program that I call…

The Six-Figure Roadmap

What this basically is… It is a timeline, it is a strategic and systematic timeline, a roadmap, a blueprint, call it whatever you want – of what to do and how to do it, dependant on where your business is at, to go from zero to six figures.

It begins with getting started as…

Growth Of Business – What Happens When You’re Not Prepared For It

Are you properly prepared and ready for your growth of business?

Here’s Dean Holland’s confession of when he wasn’t prepared for the massive, sudden growth of his business, how he got Internet Profits back on track, and the surprising lesson he’s just now learned after recently looking back on his past mistakes, which he shares with us today…

“Something Rather Special…

…rather unexpected, and rather humbling, and just amazing – mind-blowing – happened yesterday.

I speak a lot on these posts about what it is we’re working on… Like, we’ve got this new product that we’re testing and optimising, we’ve got this new funnel, we’ve got this, we’ve got that.

But I don’t get the opportunity obviously, to share everything that’s happening.

And one of the things is, about six or eight months ago we started this this phase of the company where I began to develop and renovate brand new offices for the company in the UK here.

And a few months back we moved into those offices.

Just Incredible…

…offices, if you’ve seen them on my social media at all, that we’ve built. I’ve gone for this amazing atmosphere for the team, and have now got this amazing team that all work together.

But one of the things is, that took place during this time… Is that I pumped so much into the growth of business, so much of my funds into the business to do what we’ve been doing.

And at the same time, while that was happening, we were also…

Going Through A Growth Of Business Transitional Phase…

…where we wanted really to change our products, change our messaging and, in doing so, change who we attracted into the business – change the type of customer we appeal to.

I won’t go into the reasoning behind that today, but essentially what it meant was, outgoings went through the roof, income was declining because of all of this, and I went through… well, for the last last 12 or 18 months we’ve been slowly doing that, but what happened is…

Before I built this office, and before I built the team, we went through a huge growth of business stage. We literally went from like…

$100K A Month To Over $300K A Month, In 2 Months Or So!

And we just weren’t prepared….

Never Fail Again – How To Never Fail At Anything Ever Again

Here’s how you will never fail again at anything you attempt to achieve.

So, you know what I said to someone yesterday? I was having a conversation, and this person was kind of a little bit down.

They’ve basically been saying, “This is not working out”, “I failed again”, “I’m really getting this wrong” etc. etc.

And I said,

“There Really Isn’t Any Such Thing As Failure”

…You need to adjust the way in which you’re viewing what’s happening in your business at this stage.

And so I want to share this same message with you today. Because I used to think this way too.

I used to see, every time something went wrong, as a failure – as a failed attempt. Like, oh!… It’s gone wrong again, it’s not worked out again, I’ve failed again!

If you ever think to yourself, “I’ve failed again” or this project has failed, this funnel has failed, this offer has failed, the squeeze page has failed, this website has failed, this blog has failed – whatever it is.

If you ever think that about anything in your business…

Today Marks A New Day Where You Will Never Fail Again

And I want to tell you why…

Here’s what I said yesterday, “You haven’t failed – you have just learned something.”

Okay, think about this. Every single time that you take an action, and you perceive that whatever that action was, has failed.

Instead of thinking that…

From This Day Forward I Want You To Realise…

…that what’s actually happened is – you produced a result, right? You produced an outcome.

Now if you’re perceiving that you failed, what’s really happened is…
