I have some really awful news! I know you aren’t going to like this one bit, but …
“Step 5 – Relationship Building and Social Marketing” is not going to come out until tomorrow.
Before you kill me, there’s a very good reason for this delay and I think you’re going to like the result of it even more!
You see, with each of the lessons, before I share them with you, I share them with at least 2 people whose opinions I value to make sure that I’ve made the complex topics as easy to understand as possible.
Well, when I showed the same two people the material I was preparing for Step 5, they said, “Gina, it’s not going to work! This stuff is the kind of thing you need to SHOW people, not TELL people!”
I have Camtasia, so you wouldn’t think that SHOWING you would be a problem, right?
The thing is, I have never actually USED Camtasia! So I had a bit of a learning curve to go through. But I think I have it all figured out now, so I should be able to simply roll right through!
In fact, I’ve decided to do Step 5 in a few different formats. You’re going to get an audio, at least one video (possibly more than one), and some written material too.
But it’s not going to be finished until tomorrow.
In the meantime, it’s absolutely essential for you to be familiarizing yourself with the whole concept of “social marketing”.
To help you do this, I had planned on referring you to a really great report called “Social Media Riches”.
This isn’t something that I can g’ive you for free. So I had set it up at a super che’ap price of only $5.95 so that you could get it easily.
Well, you won’t BELIEVE what happened not 10 minutes later!
I hope you’ve had a GREAT week! Mine has been interesting to say the least! It all started on Monday when a doctor suggested that I would need to have both a series of epidural injections and a spinal cord stimulator.
I guess this quack just doesn’t realize what “history of infection” means! If he even THINKS that I’d consider any type of an invasive procedure on my back, after having an infection in it serious enough to almost kill me, he’s CRAZY!
So I started doing some visualization that night to hopefully bring about a much less invasive solution to the issue I’ve been dealing with the last few weeks.
Lo and behold, the next day, I was doing a consulting call with one of my students when the solution magically “appeared” …
My student had come to my frustrated by the lack of affiliate programs available in her niche (high end skin care products). So I suggested to her that she find a few products she’d like to sell, contact the product owners, and schedule a call with them so that I could explain to them WHY they wanted an affiliate program and how she could help them to get one!
So I got on a call with my student and 2 such product creators.
One of them happened to be a woman who had cured herself of cancer with her product! To say I was impressed would be an understatement!
Well, at the end of the call, she was the one who was impressed! Neither of these business owners had ever even heard of affiliate programs. When I shared with them what having an affiliate program could do for their businesses, they were SHOCKED!
Then I took things a step further and told them that they would also want to have information products that they could use as lead generators for their other products.
I explained to them that they could use Private Label Rights Products to quickly and easily create these info products. And, I suggested that they make the info products BRANDABLE so that affiliates could put their own name and URL into them and use them as lead generators as well!
In doing this, my prediction was that it would more than likely increase their businesses more than 10 times where they are at now!
Well, as I’m sure that you can imagine, by the end of this call, both product creators were SO grateful for the advice! The one who had cured herself of cancer then said:
“Well, Gina, if I can EVER do anything at all for you, just let me know!”
Now you have to understand … all I knew about this woman was that she helps others treat their cancer, and that she had cured her own. How could she help little ole’ me?
So I simply replied, “Well it’s too bad you don’t know any good doctors in the Naples, FL area. I could really use one right now!”
Now this is where things took a REALLY weird turn …
Well, thanks to the forum, I’ve caught yet another link error and fixed it. I’m really glad that we have the forum available for this purpose as it helps to get things working better, sooner.
The problem was with the link to download lesson 4 in pdf format. It’s been fixed now, so if you are looking for it, you’ll find it at:
Speaking of the forum, only about 200 or so of my subscribers have registered so far. On a percentage of the whole list, that’s not that great.
However, if you’ve ever tried to start a forum, you’ll know that getting 200 registered members of a forum is actually not as easy as it would seem. So I’m quite pleased with this result.
There’s one thing that is being resonated over and over again through the forum and that is …
How much everyone is learning as a result of being in the forum!
And they’re not just soaking up the information either. Everyone in the forum is actually taking ACTION on their new found knowledge too!
In my posts, I’ve covered topics such as:
* Improving the conversions on your opt in pages
* Improving your copywriting skills
* What approach to take when writing copy
* How to layout your blog
* How to write a powerful post that gets your visitors to take action
* Making your goals (and dreams) come true using the power of visualization
* The power of mastermind groups and how to set one up and use it to propel your business forward
* How to build your strategic plan for your business, complete with examples and step-by-step instructions to ensure that you ALWAYS reach every single goal
* How to find your profitable passion — where do you look when you don’t have a passion to start with?
* What changes to make on your blog to improve your results
* Setting up your profit funnel — where do you find the products? what should those products be? how can you get them quickly?
and all of that is just in the first of three pages of my post listings!
Take a look at my posts without having to view the entire forum at:
If you’re not visiting the forum on a daily basis, you’re missing out on real gems that you can quickly and easilly implement in your business to practically improve your results.
Those who are taking advantage of this unbelievable opportunity are seeing one thing that is totally different than any other information you’ve seen in the past …
They aren’t just getting theoretical “How To” info.
They aren’t just getting hypothetical examples or case studies.
They ARE getting real, hard core advice, based on THEIR specific situation and THEIR specific business.
When they see how all of the “How To” info is applied to their own specific set of circumstances, many times they realize that what was keeping them from getting results was that they didn’t KNOW that they didn’t know how to build their business!
They thought they DID KNOW what to do and simply made excuses for why it wasn’t working.
But, you see …
If you keep doing things the same way expecting other results, they’re never going to come.
This is one of the biggest problems with us as humans.
We somehow expect that the end result can change even when we don’t do things differently.
The reason that this happens so frequently is because …
“You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know”
I can’t tell you how excited I am right now! It has been an UNBELIEVABLE day!
First off, I finally finished creating a brand new package just for all of my subscribers! It’s something that I’ve been working on for well over a month and I can’t wait to tell you about it.
More on that in a minute …
The second reason that I am so excited is that I just hired another person and it’s someone that I am just thrilled to be working with!
Perhaps you may have run across him at one point or another. He’s been online for awhile.
His name is William Knotts and you’ll probably hear me mentioning his name from time to time.
His role in my business will be two-fold. Not only will he help me with the technical side of things (for example, putting up new sites, setting up my shopping cart, etc.), but I am pleased to announce that he will be my Affiliate Manager as well.
Over the next few weeks, I’ll be filling you in on the details of what I have planned. But let me just tell you this much right now …
If you’re an affiliate in the internet marketing or self improvement niche, you are going to absolutely go BONKERS over this one!
Everything should be ready by May 1st, so I’ll keep you posted!
Let me get my head out of the clouds for a moment and get back to business. We’ve got some important ground to cover tonight!
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
The Lesson for Step 4 of the 30-Day Challenge is
finally ready! This lesson covers:
“Step 4 – Creating Your Web Presence”
You’ll find it at:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Tomorrow (Sunday) is the big day! That’s when I’ll be releasing “Step 4 – Creating Your Web Presence”.
This is the lesson you’ve been waiting for!
It’s the day that you’ll actually be getting your blog set up so that you can begin building the relationship with your audience.
It’s the day that you take the first step to becoming an influencer in your market.
And it’s the day that you’ll be one GIANT step closer to getting the results you want from your business!
I know that many of my subscribers are completely new to building businesses using the power of the internet. For them, technical issues are a major challenge.
Other subscribers aren’t computer challenged at all, but the whole idea of building websites and blogs just scares the heck out of them.
And the last group is the group that really knows how to use an html editor, has no problems navigating through a cpanel, and isn’t scared off by the thought of nameservers and DNS settings.
I don’t want any of these 3 groups to be left out of the 30-Day Challenge which made it a bit tricky to craft the upcoming lessons.
I didn’t want to make them so basic that I insult anyone’s intelligence. But I didn’t want to make them so technical that the novice participants would
struggle trying to follow the lessons either.
I must say, I’m pretty happy with the way that the lessons turned out from this standpoint. And with the forum available for assistance, there shouldn’t be a single person who doesn’t “get it” or at least have access to the resources they’ll need to help them to “get it”.
I also went out and really searched long and hard to find additional resources that could show you precisely what to do — STEP-By-STEP — so that it would be as close to my holding your hand through the process as possible.
Let me tell you, most of the stuff that I checked out was just plain garbage! I couldn’t follow half of it myself.
The other half just left out so many steps that it was totally useless.
And a good chunk of both groups laid out strategies that just flat out didn’t work … PERIOD!
So when I say that I’ve got some KILLER resources for you, I’m really not kidding! These are fantastic!
By tomorrow when I release Step 4, I want each person participating in the challenge to be ready for it. So I’ve decided to make these resources available to you today instead of waiting until tomorrow.
This way you’ll be able to grab them now and familiarize yourself with the parts that you’re challenged by before you have to jump in with both feet
and take action.
I found 3 resources in my search that I want to tell you about. The first is for newbies only. The second is for newbies and intermediate marketers alike. And the final one is for ANYONE doing business online.
With the third resource, unless you’ve already got a blog up and running AND you’re getting great traffic from it every day, you got to check this one out.
So here’s what I wanted to tell you about …
THIS STUFF IS PURE GOLD! WHY AM I GIVING IT AWAY?
Guys, this stuff is pure gold!
I’m referring to the 30-Day Challenge, of course!
Many subscribers have already written to me saying that and asking why I’m crazy enough to just give the info away freely.
People have made comments like:
“I find reading EVERY post EVERY day I am picking up tremendous advice and ideas. This forum is a gold mine!”
In fact, I’ve personally seen many of the “guru” charging well over $1,000 for less than HALF of what I am sharing with you through the FREE LESSONS that are part of the 30-Day Challenge!
The lessons contain the same strategy that one of my Apprentices used to get himself to a 5 figure income in only about 7 months. And he started out as a TOTAL newbie with no market, no product, and very little clue as to what marketing was all about.
The lessons contain the same strategy that another Apprentice used to go from making $15k per month to making more than double that in only about 8 months.
I should really be charging well over $497 for this course! And even at that price it would be a deal!
And I’m GIVING IT TO YOU! No strings attached!
Actually, there is one little string …
I’m not feeling as well as I’d like, so I’m going to keep today’s message short and sweet.
The first thing that I want to fill you in on is that it’s time to take the next step in the 30-Day Challenge!
Yep, that’s right, I’ve just put the finishing touches on “Step 3 – Planning Your Profit Funnel & Your Product”.
You’ll find it at:
In Step 3, you’ll learn all about planning your profit funnel and your products. I’ll take you through the entire process step-by-step.
I know that this is one of the most confusing topics for marketers, so I plan on spending plenty of time in the forum over the next few days to help get all of your questions answered!
As you’re planning your profit funnel, you want to be thinking ahead at the same time.
What I mean by that is that by now, you should already have selected a target market. You should know who your audience is.
The minute you know this, you want to get started in building a relationship with that audience. This is absolutely CRITICAL to your success as you learned in Step 2.
It’s never too early to start building that relationship.
One of the best ways of building relationships is by using Social Marketing.
In my last message, I told you about a great package called “7 Days to PLR Profits”. But I neglected to tell you about the #1 reason that I brought it up in the first place.
It’s not often that I’m up at 8:00 in the morning, but when I remembered this in my sleep, I just had to get up and tell you IMMEDIATELY. That’s how important it is!
By far, the #1 problem that most internet marketers struggle with is how to create profitable, powerful copy that actually gets their prospects to take action immediately.
Without strong copy, no matter how great your marketing strategies may be, no matter how much you know about your market, you’ll still be sitting there with an empty bank account.
Having good copy that sells is SO important that top copywriters routinely charge … and GET … $10,000 or more for writing a single sales letter.
Even so-so copywriters can charge … and GET … $2,500 or more for just one letter!
That doesn’t include autoresponder letters.
That doesn’t include an opt in page.
That doesn’t include emails to send to JV partners.
That just for one single letter!
Until yesterday, I knew of only 2 ways to get good copy that sells without hiring a copywriter:
1) Use David Garfinkel’s “copywriting Templates”, a product that will cost you around $2,000 and take you hours to figure out, and dozens of hours to use to create a single sales letter
2) Spend tens of hours, thousands of dollars, and LOTS of brain cells to learn how to write copy yourself by study masters of copywriting like Michel
Fortin, David Garfinkel, Carl Galletti, Joe Robson, John Ritzkowitz, or any of the other top-level copywriters on the internet
But when I looked inside of the “7 Days to PLR Profits” course, I found a new way of writing really great copy that sells!
Rather than tell you about it, let me show you what I just wrote in a matter of less than 3 minutes:
30-DAY CHALLENGE IS UNDERWAY!
In the past few days, you should have been focusing on getting your Mindset into “success mode” so that you’ll have an easier time as we proceed with the 30-Day Challenge.
