I sell for a living. A better way to describe that is to say: I get people to trust me for a living.

Regardless of industry, sales is about approaching complete strangers and, shortly after meeting them, asking them for money. There may be not better test of whether people trust you. Sales skills are people skills. After more than 10 years of sales, I had an experience that I never dreamed of could happen when I started working in sales.

I started a routine sales call with a potential client (whom I reached out to with a cold email just the week before). He was head of marketing at a hot consumer startup. After the routine pleasantries, he announced that he talked to dozens of marketing companies, and they had passed on them since the internal marketing team were doing a great job growing the brand. He said he didn’t really think that we had much unique to offer and that it was pretty unlikely they would try us out, but he’d give us a few minutes of time. It’s not uncommon for sales calls to start out with a healthy degree of skepticism, but what happened next is uncommon.

I have some very exciting news I want to share with you today.  It’s something I’ve been holding back until the time was right.  It’s been hard though to not spill the beans.

So here it is…

 

 

 

 

I have struck a JV deal with a well known internet marketer, Lee Murray, on a product launch.

Why is this so big?  Because not only are we splitting the profits, but I’ll be adding another buyers list to my arsenal, hopefully well over 1000 strong  This, my friends, is HUGE!

I already started my first buyers lists in Case Study #1.  Read about that by CLICKING HERE.  If you read that case study until the end, you’ll know that having a buyers list is gold – plain and simple!

Now, the content is totally awesome and I know it will change lives.  Plus, it’s gonna give a big boost to my own internet marketing career and I know you can do the same IF and only IF you follow my advice that I’m going to give you right here, right now.

Post 19 – List Building Case Study Update

Short And Sweet…

Two computer programmers walk into a bar…

Because they were lost.

 

 

 

It’s closer to my goal end time and I wanted to give you some insight into my progress.

First, the List Building Goal.  That’s the one that I’m building my list to 5k in just over 1 month.  That, my friends is a loftly goal, and it means getting 100 – 150 new subscribers every day.

After running some traffic to the site, I’ve had mixed results and none have panned out to give a large surge.  Here’s the rundown:

Post 18 – How To Connect With Your List So They Open Your Emails

facebook joke

 

 

 

 

Why is Facebook the brunt of so many jokes?

I have no idea!

 

 

Many months ago I had a list building breakthrough.

I don’t know why I never saw it before, but clearly I was doing something wrong.

 

 

I knew it too!  My list of almost 1000 were barely opening my emails.  I was getting, maybe, 1/2% – 1% opens.  I’m talking 15-20 people opening my emails out of 1000 sent.  Pretty pathetic!

See below for a screen shot of my Aweber account with a list of about 950 names:

After reading several training reports put out by some gurus, it hit me.  What they were doing was working.  Emails from those gurus I always opened and wanted to read.  Wow, I finally got it!

I’ve subscribed to many lists over the months and years and as I deliberately took notice of which emails I liked opening and which emails I skipped over, it all came together.  The techniques I read about were the ones that worked on me!  I knew then what I needed to do.

Post 17 – How To Increase Your ROI With Ad Tracking

ad tracking

 

Joke:

Advertising has really changed the way we think. Case in point…

This morning, my wife put on eye shadow, eyeliner, and eyelashes.

Question (to my wife): “What are you doing to your eyes?”

My Wife’s Answer: I’m making them look more natural!

 

As you continue to build your business, how are you getting traffic to your website, offer, or opt-in page?

Are you advertising on Google or Bing?  Are you guest posting on blogs?  Are you advertising on The Warrior Forum?  What about Facebook?  Do you have a link within your facebook posts?  How about Instagram?

The choices for driving traffic can really be staggering.

Now what happens if you start to get visitors to your website, and start to get people taking your offers?  Which ads are resulting in those offers?  Which promotions are a waste of time and money?

It’s extremely important to know the answers to these questions.  Without that knowledge, you cannot possibly make good decisions regarding the promotions that you’re running.  This will ultimately lead to money and time down the drain!

On the flip side, if you have some winning offers, the one’s that actually give you a positive return on investment, you’ll want to scale those big-time!

Here’s an example:

Post 14 – Facebook Ads Results

Joke:

A little boy goes to his father and asks “Daddy, how was I born?”

The father answers: “Well son, I guess one day you will find out anyway.

Your mom and I got together in a chat room on AOL. Then I set up a date via e-mail with your mom and we met up at cyber-cafe. We sneaked into a secluded room, I upgraded my floppy disk to a stiffy and then your mom agreed to do a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither one of had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later, a blessed little pop-up appeared and said:

“You’ve got Male!”

 

 

 

Today I wanted to give an update on my list building case study and Facebook ads specifically.

So far, Facebook has been a bust.  The ads have not produced many opt-ins and I think there are several reasons.  Being the analytical type, I’m trying to figure it out.  Here’s where the problem lies with Facebook ppc:
