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…

Website Traffic: You Should Never Have A Web Traffic Problem

Website Traffic

So we’re gonna have a sit down for a few minutes, and we’re gonna talk about something incredibly important.

I see a lot of people, both Certified Partners, and clients, and customers… a lot of people are struggling to drive traffic right now. The thing is…

Nobody Should Ever, EVER Have A Website Traffic Problem!

Because there is so much traffic available… (Click here for my FREE traffic training video…) Let me say that again, “You should never have a web traffic problem!”

Now the reason is… look all the platforms where there are infinite, practically infinite amounts of website traffic available:

Facebook…
Google…
GDN…
YouTube…
Instagram…
Twitter…
Native ads…
Email buys, banner ads, media buys, and the list could go on and on and on.

The problem isn’t getting website traffic. The problem is converting the traffic. And this is what I want to talk about. I don’t want to talk about the conversions of a sales page, the conversions of an offer… I want to talk about…

Where The REAL Money Is Found In Your Business

And that is in the follow up with your audiences, eg. the follow up with your email list. This is one that we could definitely focus in on here.

You see we’ve got, for example, Certified Partners and clients here at Internet Profits, where they are driving web traffic, they’re building their email list, and they’re not following up consistently and communicating effectively with that audience in order to convert them.

I stress again, like I just said, you will not have a website traffic problem. You will most likely always have a conversion problem. And the main point where you can affect that, is in the follow up with your audiences.

So, A Few Pieces Of Advice…

One: Are you communicating with your list every single day? Not once or twice a week, not a few times a week, every single day! Because if you’re not, then…

Website Conversion Optimization: Warning! This Will NOT Work For You

Website Conversion Optimization

Here’s how NOT to approach website conversion optimization on your business website or blog, especially when trying to sell anything directly from a web page… Followed by the best advice to optimize your website for conversions:

“I just read something really dangerous online. I’ve got to talk about it in today’s Drive.

Website Conversion Optimization – A Warning!

Good morning, welcome to another episode of The Drive. It’s Dean here, of course. On the way to Internet Profits HQ here in the UK.

As I just said in the introduction, I read something on social media this morning.

Well, I read a few things – and alarm bells started ringing, and I thought I have GOT to speak about this to you today.

I’ve got to share this, because…

This Could Be Causing So Much Harm To So Many People

…and it’s scary! Let me explain…

So I saw in one of the groups that I belong to this morning, somebody asking a question something along the lines of, “What will work best for website conversion optimization? This, or this?”

Then you had all these people chiming in saying, “Oh, that way would work best. There’s no way the other way is correct, there’s no way that would work.”

And then you had other people saying, “No I’m not sure. I think the other way would work best for website conversion optimization.”

It was very apparent to me, as a bystander, looking in from the outside, that a lot of the opinions being given were from people that were just guessing what they think would work best.

Then something else that I saw, which was based on someone else’s testing (which is great right?) Someone else had done some testing on a certain thing for website conversion optimization.

It was actually on something that they’d added to their website that they thought would increase website conversions. And they were saying…

“I Thought This Would Increase Conversions, But It Didn’t”

So you’ve then got everyone else there commenting, saying, “Oh thanks so much for sharing this, you saved me wasting my time, so I won’t do this.”

And I thought, hang on a minute… This is dangerous! This is scary!

Right, I’ve got one more example, and then I’m going to tell you why this is so scary to me, and dangerous to your business…

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?

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…

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?…

The New Best Way To Get Website Traffic Profitably Today

Today we’re talking the best way to get website traffic – seen by many as the holy grail in online marketing.

I used to think myself, “If only I could get more traffic, then I’d be rich! If only I could get more traffic, then I wouldn’t be struggling anymore.”

And that statement is really only true when you have the correct things in place, okay?

So obviously you have to have something to turn that traffic into sales – meaning you need a sales process, you need a sales funnel, you need offers that are optimised to convert.

With the rising cost of traffic, having just one offer – unless it’s a high ticket premium priced offer – having just one offer nowadays is not going to cut it in most markets, or at least in many markets.

I’m sure there are some, but…

Website Traffic Is Always Going To Be On The Increase In Cost

Therefore that means you need to make that traffic more valuable to you. Which means having either higher price products or more products to sell to the the people that you’re attracting into your business.

Now what I want to talk about today is what I used to describe as, “The future of online traffic generation”. But today I’m going to change that. Today I’m going to say it is, “The current way of traffic generation” – the best way to get website traffic, in my humble opinion, and doing it successfully, okay?

There were times – and this is how a lot of people still operate, and I’m not saying this is completely redundant – what I’m saying is that…

Times Have Changed, Things Have Changed

There’s been shifts that have occurred in the marketplace, one of which (as I’ve just touched on) is the fact that traffic is going to continually increase in cost.

And so how do you get traffic and make it profitable to you now and into the future? Well the new way and…

Currently The Best Way To Get Website Traffic Profitably

…is with multiple campaigns. Now we haven’t really publicly launched this yet, but I’ve actually built an entire traffic training system around this entire concept. It’s not available, so I’m not saying that to try and sell it to you.

But what I’m getting at here is…
