Grow Business Online – How To Grow Your Online Business

Grow Business Online

How to grow business online is the subject of Dean’s message today…

“So I ended up in a concert in Birmingham, England last night, with Robyn my fiancee. Just before that I tried to eat a 10 pound food challenge, which didn’t necessarily end so well!

But being at the concert made me think about something in business, and I was reminded of this recently when I was flying from UK to the US in business class.

And I want to share this lesson with you, because this is a way that you can definitely, definitely add a significant percentage of profits to your business. In some cases…

Double, Triple Or More, The Revenue You’re Making

…every single year online.

Good morning welcome to a bit of a different setting for The Drive. I’m actually here in the office. Not gonna lie. Reason being, I forgot the camera last night when I left. So I didn’t have it to do The Drive when I left this morning. So…

Welcome To Internet Profits HQ

You can take a look behind me, and see what’s going on behind us here.

Dean Holland at Internet Profits HQ

So yeah last night, yesterday, I left the office around about 3:00 in the afternoon because my mom had actually purchased me and my fiance some tickets for my birthday (which was back in September) to go to a concert in Birmingham, England.

Actually took us about three hours to get there, because the traffic was really bad. So when we arrived, we hadn’t had any dinner. And so before the concert began, we decided to go for some food. We went to a smokehouse which did meats like, y’know, ribs and brisket and pastrami and loads of different meats.

We get in there and – I love food! If you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you’ll know that…

I Love Food!

Dean Holland - The Drive Episode 113And there was this “plate”. There was this meal on the menu, and it was basically called a mixed grill smoked plate. And it had all this food on it, and I’m like, “That sounds good! I get to try different things.”

And so Robyn my fiancee, she placed her order. She was having, like, a burger, and I’d ordered this big plate, this mixed grill. And the waitress actually turned to me at the time. She was like…

“You Guys Haven’t Been Here Before, Have You?”

I was like, “No, first time.” She says, “Well, the burger you’ve ordered is huge. Like it literally comes like this…” (Stacked high.) And Robyn was like, “Oh well, I’ll still have the burger anyway, even if I can’t eat it. I want the burger.”

Then the waitress is like, “And your mixed grill that you’ve ordered, that’s a plate for three to four people. It is like nine pounds of food.” So I’m like, “Well, I’m kind of in a rush here. I’ve already chosen. I haven’t got time to go back through the menu. I’ve got a concert to get to. I’ll just stick with what I’ve got. I can eat what I can, and we’ll do that.”

The waitress said, “Well it’s gonna be a challenge!”…

Ways To Make Money Online – The Four Core Components

Ways To Make Money Online

Making money online doesn’t have to be as hard as what a lot of people make it.

There is an easier way for somebody brand-new, to start making commissions and start earning money on the internet. And that’s what I’m going to share with you today.

Good morning welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here of course. Just heading direct to Internet Profits HQ to finish the week strong – it is Friday of course.

Let Me Just Take You Back To 2004

I discovered, whilst working a seemingly poor paying bar job in a pub here in England, literally working six days a week, very unsociable hours on very, very little pay.

That lead me to go in search for; how could I make more money…

Ways To Make Money Online

And obviously this whole journey of discovery into making money online, and online marketing began.

And geez, talk about getting sucked down the rabbit hole like Alice in Wonderland! I went down that that rabbit hole and a whole new world opened up to me. And that world was exciting…

That World Gave Me A Buzz

I saw such potential… I felt hope… I saw the prospect, the opportunity, of a financial freedom… of becoming more than what I was… of living more than what I was living.

Having more of everything, like more money, more freedom, more time.

And It Didn’t Happen

I lost over and over again. Until 2008 landed and I was literally on the brink of having to give it up… Not through choice, but through lack of options. I had no other resources left, so it seemed.

Sixty plus thousand dollars in debt, five credit cards, all but one maxed out (had about a thousand dollars left on it). I was living back at my mom’s house. I was in my mid-20s.

I had two bank loans that I’d taken out over the course of those years. One to clear the credit cards (then I used them all again!) And then one just to give me some extra money, and then I went and spent it all again.

And So I Was Living This Lie…

Because nobody in my life knew I had these debts, because I was afraid, I was so ashamed, I was scared. And I didn’t know really what to do.

Then October turned around and I ended up going to an internet marketing seminar for the first ever time. Met a few people. Saw some people that were living like I wanted to live.

Met Some Real Internet Marketers – Successful People

And with one of them, I used my last bit of money on the credit card to actually join his coaching program. Got him as a mentor, and started attending these weekly live calls, learning, studying, applying everything he taught me.

And over the weeks and the months ahead, I started to make money and I started to turn things around.

Nine Months Later I Quit My Job

…which was at a construction company by this point. And the following year made over half a million dollars in sales from one website.

But it was a long, long journey. Was it worth it? You bet it was!!

Now my life is unrecognizable to them. But still, this industry is plagued by the large majority of people that cannot make it work, that cannot make money, that cannot succeed.

And if I look back as to why I couldn’t succeed… well there were many reasons. But I’m gonna just pinpoint one key reason right now…

I Was Trying So Many Different Ways To Make Money Online

I’m not talking about things that worked well together… I mean completely different business approaches – completely different business models!

And now I can pinpoint some key steps, so that…

If You Focus On These Steps, You Will Make Money

And so here’s what it is…

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.

Dean Holland - The Drive E97

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…

You Have To Understand Things Like…

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…
