The two types of marketers

Which one are you?

Oh, you don’t know the type of marketers huh?

Well I’ll tell ya.

There are those that will flat out lie to you.

Telling you shyt like:

“It’s not your fault that you aren’t getting results online”

And then the other type.

Those who will be 100% honest with you and not sugar coat a damn thing.

Giving you fact like;-

It is 100% your fault that you aren’t getting results online.

Especially if you have been online longer than a month.

It is your fault.

You see;-

You understand that you want better out of your life.

Maybe you want to quit your job.

Maybe you want to have some extra spending moolah on the side for vacation.

Look whatever you reasons for wanting to build a bidniz.

If you aren’t getting the results you want…

Well guess what?

It is your fault for not getting them.

The fix?

Two.

First – Stop lying to yourself

Second;-

Well I’ll leave that to you to figure out.

Still afraid to mail your list… consider this…

“You need to understand this: I don’t lose people, people lose me.”

~ Harvey Specter
“Suits”

You need to understand this.

There are plenty supply of the people you want to do business with online, and only one you.

So when someone unsubscribes.

Celebrate.

That is one less person you know won’t buy anything from you in the near future.

Go buy a drink or something.

You just made room for the people you really want to do business with.

They lost you, not the other way around.

I get about 10 – 20 unsubs a day and sometimes more depending on the content of the email that I sent.

Doesn’t bother me one bit.

Can you build your bidniz off of PDF reports…

Ask a reader not too long ago.

My take on it?

Of course you can.

You see;-

When building your business, you truly do have the most control over how you want to run it.

Meaning;-

If you don’t want to make a full blown video course and rather write up PDF reports..

…then do that.

Don’t want to write PDF reports and want to build your business around MP3 downloads…

…then do that.

Nothing is really off limits.

You really can build your business on your own terms.

Don’t do anything that you really don’t want to do.

For example;-

I don’t do product launches.

At least not in the way that you see on ParriorWlus or ZVJoo.

Just not my thing, so I don’t do them.

What I do instead is just build this email list and tell you about any products I’m launching, promoting, etc.

Just how I want to do things.

Why I don’t give a damn about organic traffic

For one reason or another there are a handful of newbie marketers who rely on organic “free” traffic to build their businesses.

In other words;-

They are at the mercy of the tyrant Google.

One algo change and boom there goes the free organic traffic.

Plus…

It is way too slow for me.

Think about it.

In order to make organic traffic work for you, you would either need to have a huge following already OR get lucky and hope an influencer shares your stuff with their audience sending you hordes of free traffic.

Not really newbie friendly if you ask me.

Paid traffic is my favorite.

Since it can allow someone to go from 0 to 100 real quick.

But it needs to be done correctly.

Well, this is strange..

Get this;

For the past few days I’ve been getting emails from people who aren’t on my email list, haven’t bought any products from me, but have some how heard of me all asking the same question.

The question being:

“Isaiah, I’m just getting started in Internet Marketing and wanted to know if you had a beginner course?”

Now this is strange.

Because they only way to get my email address would be to visit the contact page on my site, open up an email application, and manually type out my email address.

The best part about the emails I’ve been getting?

They follow the exact criteria I had set on the contact page.

They are short.

Bullet format when needed.

It is great.

Anyways;-

To answer the question.

I mainly focus on email list building and email marketing in the Internet Marketing space.

My full-blown video course is called the List Lifestyle Formula.

And it reveals exactly what I do in my own business to build this email list and make sales from this email list.

The 14 day rule…

Have you heard of it?

It is the belief (read: myth) that if a subscriber doesn’t buy in the first 14 days that they are a lost cause.

Meaning they won’t ever buy from you.

Simply because they didn’t buy from you in the first 14 days of being on your email list.

Here’s the deal;-

There is no rule that says your subscribers have to buy something from you in the first 7, 14, 28 days of being on your email list.

Fact of the matter is this..

What determines if someone will buy from you depends on the offer, the niche, your reputation in that niche, the subscribers life situation, their beliefs, experience, etc.

Things that can take months to change.

Not days.

Speaking from personal experience.

I’ve had subscribers who finally bought something from me simply because the email they read just “got them.”

Here’s a new rule.

Email daily until they buy or unsubscribe.

Patience and persistence should be your weapon of choice when going to war in this internet marketing game.

Why I don’t do open rates…

Now I am sure the open rate folks just read that subject line and are foaming at the mouth ready to pass out because of what they just read.

Look;-

Tracking open rates has its place.

But for me right now, it ain’t happening.

One reason;-

I have found that when I did track opens and clicks – the total number of clicks shown in an autoresponder were always different than the amount of clicks actually generated.

In fact;-

I’ve had emails where it would show crazy high open rates and 0 clicks.

But when looking into my click stats – that wasn’t even remotely close to being the case.

Second reason;-

There are two reasons why people open emails.

The first is the text before the subject line.

Which in my opinion is far more important than the subject line itself.

The second is the subject line.

Anyways;-

I can’t cash open rates at the bank.

They only accept cashola.

Maybe they should start tracking sales made instead of opens.

But that is just me.

Only a sucker would suck on this…

Comes an email from a subscriber who says:

“Yeah because everyone should sucker in the people who visit your site that’s why its cheap for the first one so people can get the first one and cant actually use it until they spend 4 thousand dollars”

This was in regards to the Done For You Funnels promotion a few days ago.

Around that same time folks were hopping on this list, and receiving emails about it.

While also going through a product sales funnel if they bought a low-ticket offer from me.

As far as why I sell something “cheap” on the front end?

That is a different story.

But I will tell you this;-

It ain’t because you need to buy some “4 thousand dollars” thing to make it work.

The difference is pretty clear to anyone with half a brain.

Done For You Funnels is a service where I do most of the work for you.

Anything else that I sell, is a product that you would invest in and have to do the work yourself.

Silly suckers like the above can’t read.

Just another reason I don’t cotton to price shoppers.

How many subscribers do you need to make your first sale?

Two words.

It depends.

Depends on how those subscribers got on your email list.

Depends on the positioning you have with those subscribers.

Depends on the price point you are selling at (not all the time)

It depends.

I can tell you now though –

My first few sales came from when I had a list of 300 subscribers in a niche that had nothing to do with Internet Marketing.

That list at that time earned me about $100 – $200 a week.

Not bad.

Considering the fact that I was deployed overseas and didn’t put nearly as much time as I do now into building that list and writing emails.

Thanks, but I rather count my money in private

A lot of newbies who come online think they have to have income proof to get results online.

Nothing could farther from the truth than this.

You see;-

Back when I got started online, I didn’t really rely on income proof to build up an Internet Marketing list of subscribers.

I focused on the things that came before the result of income.

Getting traffic and building a list.

Things that I had done in a completely different niche outside of Internet Marketing.

And when you put 6,500 subscribers on an email list…

…using mostly free traffic sources

…in a niche that has nothing to do with marketing

Well people pay attention.
