This past summer I attended the Home Business Summit in Long Beach, CA where I met John Chow, Matt Lloyd, Terry Lamb, Vince Reed, and many other superstars in the internet marketing industry. I learned more valuable content in that one weekend than I did my entire first year in internet marketing alone. I don’t know everything there is to know about internet marketing; but what I do know is when you can learn from people who know how to make $40,000 to $300,000 per month, you don’t miss that kind of opportunity.
Is it really all about the list? A week ago, I would have said yes; in today’s light, however, maybe not. It all really depends upon context. It’s been about a week since I attended the Home Business Summit and got my MOBE License Rights; it’s been a week of perspective and some shift changes. I went there to meet John Chow, find out about list building, and get more info on this business I’d been hearing about with Matt Lloyd and MOBE; but I left with so much more. For the biggest take away, I learned why I only generated $2,000 revenue in my first 9 months as an internet marketer. It wasn’t the size of my list, the quality of my offers, or self-limiting beliefs; it was the lack of a high converting funnel, high commission offers, and skilled automated, live follow-up. The biggest factor, though, was the availability of a high converting funnel.
I’ve been in the home based business industry for 9 months now and have generated a measly $1,880 in cash flow (revenue). Attached to this post is my commission history earned since inception of my business on September 4, 2012. On top of that, were there expenses? Hell Yeh! Was it all profit? Hell no! Do I care? Well, hell yeh, I’m here to make some frigg’n money dammit! But because of Aron Parker and Neucopia, I have learned more in the last 9 months than many marketers will ever learn in a lifetime; and I’m going to chalk this last 9 months up to framework (a framework that will support something much bigger); therefore, I believe, for whatever reason, “I am where I’m supposed to be” (thanks Jerry Maurer: quote ripped off from Jerry’s interview with Robert Mercado at NE4). So hell no, I’m not stopping; I’m not even slow’n down until I’m making one million per year. And truth be known, I won’t slow down at the one million dollar mark either; because in the end, “Success is not a destination, it’s a Journey” (also stolen from Jerry’s Robert Mercado interview).
