Business Acceleration Program

This could be the best present you can ever treat yourself at year-end, better than the Amazon Kindle.

On July 11 through the 15th, 2007, Rich Schefren and his team of 9 leading Web marketing experts shared explosive business-building strategies, tactics and tools for the first time in public at his “Acceleration 2007” live event in Delray Beach, Florida.

Now, at long last, after months of preparation—and with tons of new material added—the Business Acceleration Program home study resource is now released.

I have never been able to put Mr. Schefren in the “Internet Marketing” box; for that matter, I don’t see him as a marketer anymore. Having studied under Jay Abraham, received exclusive business education from (Arthur) Andersen Consulting, gained incredible experience through working with business leader Michael Masterson and his firm Agora Publishing, and turned his family boutique business around, from a red mark into millions of dollars in turnover, here is a man worth looking up to as a fine example of business transcendence.

If you have been following his blog and stuff, you know Rich writes and talks different just because of the way his life is shaped. Even the materials he gives away is worth repeated readings. I mean, who could ever forget his shocking Internet Business Manifesto?

So don’t ever think you know what to expect from BAP. I can tell you it contains:

– 20 DVDs full of incredible marketing wisdom
– 28 CDs so you can listen to it in your car
– Workbooks
– Mind maps
– The works!

As for the content, be prepared to kick the business world in the ass with it. :) I haven’t even mentioned up to $15,668 in FREE Bonuses and $10,297 in Early-Bird Gifts, but I don’t want you to purchase BAP just because there’s “so much stuff”. You want BAP because it can equate to future results.

If you desire to be a serious and influential thought leader, investing in the Business Acceleration Program at a fraction of the original workshop’s price and being able to rerun it to your heart’s content is definitely a wicked option.

It’s been 8 days since I wrote about the time when I took advantage of a special article submission offer by Article Marketer to submit up to 26 articles to its complete in-house list of more than 2,953 article directories, private sites and Yahoo! Groups as well.

I screen-captured a partial list of my article titles:

Article Marketer

I just like to tell you that I am dominating the SE rankings on Google’s first page for some if not most of the articles.

In the ideal scenario, you want to literally dominate all first 10 positions, which I have successfully achieved for titles like:

1) 5 Money-On-Demand Secrets To Creating Great Adsense Sites

2) The 5 Effective Methods Of Getting Targeted Traffic

Still, I manage to get 2, 3 positions when my titles include competitive terms like “web copy” and “search engine optimization”:

3) How To Write An Effective Web Copy

4) How To Select A Search Engine Optimization Company

Also note that my searches does not include apostrophes (“) or else performing exact searches would show a more impressive result, but as far as I am concerned, Article Marketer has done a terrific job submitting articles on my behalf. I did it with students, but the folks at AM are pros who know how to get things done with speediness.

The special article submission offer (a one-time fee for a full article blitz on their complete list) is hard to come by and I thought it is the first time I learned about it. Hopefully Article Marketer can run this promo again. Gaining a free membership still entails you to partial distribution.

I suggest you take up a membership anyway and hear from them through their e-mails.

Let’s not forget other webmasters would want to republish your articles if they like what they read from those other directories. It gets viral.

Finally, publish your articles on your own site or blog and bookmark them at StumbleUpon or Facebook (the “Post Item” module). I guarantee your traffic will improve steadily over time.

* Guerrilla Marketing For The New Millenium *

Posted December 18th, 2007 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Business

The phrase “Guerrilla Marketing” was coined by Jay Conrad Levinson in his popular 1984 book Guerrilla Marketing, as an unconventional system of promotions on a very low budget, by relying on time, energy and imagination instead of big marketing budgets. The term has since entered the popular vocabulary to also describe aggressive, unconventional marketing methods generically.

Mr. Levinson identifies the following principles as the foundation of guerrilla marketing:

1. Guerrilla Marketing is specifically geared for the small business and entrepreneur.

2. It should be based on human psychology instead of experience, judgment, and guesswork.

3. Instead of money, the primary investments of marketing should be time, energy, and imagination.

4. The primary statistic to measure your business is the amount of profits, not sales.

5. The marketer should also concentrate on how many new relationships are made each month.

6. Create a standard of excellence with an acute focus instead of trying to diversify by offering too many diverse products and services.

7. Instead of concentrating on getting new customers, aim for more referrals, more transactions with existing customers, and larger transactions.

8. Forget about the competition and concentrate more on cooperating with other businesses.

9. Guerrilla Marketers should always use a combination of marketing methods for a campaign.

10. Use current technology as a tool to empower your marketing.

His concepts are so successful that he has sold over 14 million books on the subject (in 41 languages), his books are required reading in the most respected MBA programs in the world, and he is now the most widely read and respected author of business books in the world. And Jay did all this “from scratch”. That is, the success of the “Guerrilla Marketing” brand is a testament to the very principles Jay himself teaches.

So, how then, does this information apply to those of us marketing on the Internet? Far more than you think! The Internet is not just a new guerrilla battlefield—it’s the ultimate guerrilla battlefield. There have been more small business mega-success stories in the last 5 years than in the combined history of business. And there are clearly 2 factors that have influenced this more than anything:

1. The Internet
2. Guerrilla Marketing

Ever wonder why big businesses are totally blowing it online? Because they are not guerrilla thinkers! These big bloated bureaucracies are sluggish and set in their ways. This means that someone like you can step in and out-maneuver them. (More and more big businesses are turning to small business entrepreneurs to teach them how to market online—the tables have turned!) So, start thinking like a guerrilla right now. You have the advantage—all you have to do is take it. Here’s the definitive place to get started—where you will find an easy to follow step-by-step plan for launching a “guerrilla attack”.

How To Be An Expert Persuader 20 Days Or Less!

You know that everything you want in life you have to get with the cooperation of other people. Without the cooperation of others, you’d never get a job, go out on a date, or have any friends. In order to gain cooperation, you have to use persuasion to get it.

Most people try to persuade others by rationalizing with them. Doesn’t always work. Sometimes they try to argue with someone to get what they want. That won’t work. But smart people learn something about the art of persuasion and learn to give the other person something valuable in the exchange.

Michael Lee is now running a special half-price offer for the newly-revised, 229-page “How To Be An Expert Persuader…In 20 Days or Less” from Dec. 12th to 16th.

Michael has such a wonderful writing style. As you read through this book, you get the feeling that he is right there with you, guiding you gently through the material.

I think that part of this comes from Michael’s sincere honesty. He doesn’t try to overpower you with his credentials like so many false guru wanna-be’s out there. He’s very up front with the fact that he started out right where you are now, afraid of everything, easily taken advantage of, with almost no self-confidence at all.

When you reach the end of Michael’s book, you find that you’ve learned so much, and you now have the confidence to put into practice everything he’s taught you. It’s like you’ve grown up with a friend who will be there for you no matter what happens, ready to help you get everything you always wanted out of life.

That’s something that I rarely find in any book I read. Most authors seem to throw information at you, and while you realize that it’s good information, you have no idea how to put it into use. Not so with Michael’s book. Everything that you read here is easily understood, so much so that you seem to automatically know how to use the information given to you.

And such high-quality information too! Michael’s new book talks about some things that I haven’t seen in any book on persuasion. Things like:

* Self-programming affirmations to turn you into a persuasion power-house!
* A powerful relaxation exercise to give added punch to your persuasion efforts!
* How to develop magnetic charisma power
* One word that magically makes people like you.
* The one secret to successful selling that most sales professionals don’t know!
* How to get your prospect to sell themselves!
* When to know that ‘less is more’.
* How to find (or create) a magic button that compels someone to give you what you want.

And much, much more!

Michael’s amazing offer might change in the blink of an eye. If you know anything about the price of other books on persuasion, you know that this is the deal of a lifetime.

You have to act quickly if you want to get in on this special deal. If you’re constantly unhappy and frustrated with everything going on around you, then developing your abilities of persuasion is the right step to take. And there will never be a better time to do that than to find out more about Michael’s persuasion techniques right now!

My 18 Articles…

Posted December 13th, 2007 by Nelson Tan. Filed under Article Marketing

Ezine Articles has published 18 of my articles and I like to share with you my knowledge.

To give you some ideas of my experience, I have edited a total of 37 articles to date ready for submission. Some are PLR articles so if you’re using them you must change them radically. The safest way is to write your original articles but re-express ideas taken from PLR sources, especially when it comes to strict sites like Ezine Articles which will not hesitate to suspend your account if they find a duplicate.

Another strongly recommended submission site is Article Marketer. It has an in-house distribution system for your articles to hundreds of other directories and I can already google some of mine. Article Marketer is more concerned about your article length which should be at least 400 words.

I wasn’t very conscientious about article submission but kept writing more articles as and when I gained fresh ideas and only recently started submitting heavily because I’m trying to take advantage of a time-limited special offer by Article Marketer.

Nonetheless when you have the right quantity and quality for your articles, and whether you have paid for any kind of article submission membership or not, your submissions are going to pay you back in increased traffic.

Boomerang List Builder

Without a responsive, loyal list, you have no one to directly market to. You already know that, if you just send messages and ads blindly out into virtual space, nothing will happen. You do know that, don’t you?

Unfortunately building a targeted, loyal list isn’t an easy thing to do, well that is until now.

What if I told you about a unique software that I have recently started to build my mailing list on autopilot?

The Boomerang List Builder ‘wraps’ an info-product with a request for a “registration code”. In order to get the code, readers must opt-in to your list before they can even begin to execute the file. Now imagine how ‘wrapping’ a product allows you to collect the name and e-mail address of every single person that reads your e-book or runs your software!

Once your wrapped products are “out there” as a free gift or a resale product, you just sit back and watch brand new, targeted subscribers come rolling in!

Best of all the software works with any mailing list solution, so the chances are that you are already set up and ready to go, all you need to do is start to ‘wrap’ your products (which takes literally 2 minutes!) and you too will start to see a stream of subscribers coming to you!

Head on over and take a look at the Boomerang List Builder. There’s a demo in there so you know exactly how it works. It could be the best choice you ever made!

Infoproduct Dashboard

The motivations that push Marlon Sanders to create Infoproduct Dashboard are to address issues in simple ways:

1. You either trade time for dollars, or products for dollars

2. You want a simple, doable, step-by-step process for creating your own infoproduct in about 20-30 minutes per day, 6 days a week over a 6-week period.

3. How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. That’s what the Infoproduct Dashboard does. It breaks it down into one bite at a time.

Now, it isn’t all fun and games. There ARE legitimate obstacles you have to overcome.

KEY OBSTACLES:

Obstacle 1: Marlon, I want to create my own infoproduct but I’m NOT an expert at anything.

Solution: I show you step-by-step how to use the knowledge of OTHER experts to create your first info product.

Obstacle 2: I don’t have money to pay experts.

Solution: I show you a secret source a friend of mine uses to get experts to create his products with him—at ZERO cost. Zero!

In some cases, you may pay experts a relatively modest sum. But I’m going to show you a killer way to get experts to co-create infoproducts with you and they won’t charge you a cottin’ pickin’ dime!

Obstacle 3: Creating an infoproduct is hard work and takes forever.

Solution: If you have 20-30 minutes a day, just follow my step-by-step instructions, screen caps and videos.

Today I talked to Mike Filsaime. He does products the way I teach. His first product took 6 days. His next 3 or 4 literally took only hours using a system just like I’m teaching.

Obstacle 4: I’m a newbie and don’t know what topic to produce a product on.

Solution: In the Infoproduct Dashboard, I’ll give you a few very simple things you can do to find a good topic. You don’t need a million things to do. I boil it down and give you just a few that work.

Obstacle 5: I don’t have money for recording equipment, software and all that jazz.

Solution: I’ve eliminate virtually every expense possible. Most everything can be done without money. I give the free resources and then, if appropriate, a paid resource, if the paid one is what I personally use. That way, if you don’t have money, you can use the free one. If you DO have money, you can use what I personally use in my own business.

Obstacle 6: Where will I find these experts? I don’t know where to find them.

Solution: I show you my secret resources and places they hang out at. Of course, you may have friends, family, acquaintances or others who will allow you to borrow their knowledge.

Obstacle 7: “I don’t have a lot of money to order a bunch of CDs.”

Solution: You can delivery digitally. We show you how, give you templates, the whole ball of wax. But if you WANNA do a CD, we give a place that will do a quantity as low as ONE at a great price, AND ship the CD for you. There are no barriers here to people who own the Infoproduct Dashboard.

Obstacle 8: I don’t know how to do video and I can’t afford Camtasia.

Solution: We show you how to create video to supplement your products with using a free software program. Video is a very nice addition to a product. And we make it easy and cheap for you.

Obstacle 9: I can’t afford Sound Forge to edit AUDIO with. How do I create audio?

Solution: We show you how to do it easy with a free program.

Obstacle 10: “I hate reading a bunch of long, drawn out stuff.”

Solution: We show what to do and HOW to do it without any filler or fluff. This is an ACTION system.

But I show you secret places to find people most don’t know about. Including ONE that gets a WHOPPING 30% success rate when the right email is sent. The exact word-for-word e-mail is one of the fast action bonuses I’ll be offering. Oh, I give you the SOURCE of these experts also.

You have a decision in life.

Do you want to trade your TIME for dollars?

Or do you want to trade PRODUCTS for dollars?

The choice will be yours shortly.

 

It’s a trap.

Trading time for dollars, that is.

Why? Because you only have so many hours in a day and you can only earn so much per hour. As a result you have a lid on your earnings.

Not only that, but you don’t have personal freedom. As long as you have to trade your own personal time for money, you’re doomed to short vacations and working 6-8 hours a day most days of the year.

Yet, I don’t wear a watch, other than for appearances.

I don’t have an alarm clock in my house. Some days, I don’t even know what day of the week it is.

Why? Because I don’t trade my time for dollars. I trade PRODUCTS for dollars. And it’s all the difference in the world in terms of personal freedom.

A lot of people wear an expensive watch as a status symbol. My status symbol is I don’t need a watch, so I often don’t wear one.

It’s the simplest thing, really. Going back to cave man days, people learned that if you traded THINGS for food or animals or whatever, you didn’t have to trade TIME for those things.

Out of all the things in the world you can trade for money, TIME is the one that TRAPS you. You could trade a million types of products in the world for money.

But for most people, the ONLY thing they can think of to trade for money is their own personal time. It doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.

Yet, there are those, and perhaps you are one of them, who have TRIED to break out of the time for dollars trap.

Maybe you bought PLR (private label rights). Or reprint rights. Maybe you spent 6 months writing an e-book that didn’t sell. And you didn’t make money and now you wonder why.

Just ANY product doesn’t cut it. You need a unique or even exclusive product of your own.

Why? Law of supply and demand. If you have the ONLY product on the topic, you control the supply and therefore lock the demand into YOUR supply.

For example, the other day I bought an e-book that took a certain angle on men’s fashion and clothing. It’s the ONLY E-BOOK in the world to my knowledge on the topic.

Maybe there are others. But it’s the only one I’ve seen or know about. That would make it the only one to me. The books at the bookstore on men’s fashion did NOT cover this particular angle.

That’s a perfect example of the power of having an exclusive product.

Now, you also need something that will SELL. That there is demand for. That’s why I’ve taught people for the past 7 or 8 years how to do 12-product surveys.

They’re a great tool for identifying demand. They aren’t perfect. But they’re a great tool that should be in your little toolkit.

At seminars, people sometimes come to me and say, “Marlon, I’ve spent $5,000 on coaching, or $3,000 on seminars or info products. I’m STILL not making money. How come?”

I ask, “Do you have your OWN exclusive product?” Usually, the answer is “no”. And I say, “That’s why.”

There are some people who do have their own product and can’t sell it. But they did NOT do a 12 product survey first. They just guessed what would sell.

I recommend the 12-product surveys highly. And in online marketing, I’m the ONLY ONE who teaches them.

In a 12-product survey there will often be 1 or 2 products that get almost NO VOTES! Imagine if that’s the product you create. And then you wonder why no one will buy it!

Finally, the last element in the equation is traffic. You can have a product people want. But if you don’t have traffic, you’re screwed. If you haven traffic, building your LIST is easy. You just offer something free and put a name squeeze form on there.

That’s why I created the Affiliate Dashboard to help you set up an affiliate program.

But people have told me, “Marlon, I don’t need an affiliate program. I don’t have my own product yet. But I can’t write and creating a product sounds like HARD WORK!”

That is why I created the brand new Infoproduct Dashboard to make it as easy as humanly possible.

Super Affiliates Inner Circle Membership Club

If you’ve been in the Internet business for long time, a lot of this should be stuff you already know. However, if you’re new, then the content within Super Affiliates Inner Circle Membership Club is stuff you NEED to know!

PROS

Ewen Chia has always over-delivered but this time he has gone out of his way to help affiliate marketers. There’s a really useful 15-step blueprint that Ewen has in the membership area that can help any budding super affiliate succeed in the business (although it can be considered “basic” by those who have been around the block for awhile). If you don’t know to set up stuff like autoresponders and websites, or building lead generation pages, then this blueprint is a goldmine and will help ease you into starting your Internet business quickly. You’ll also get hours worth of videos to guide you through the technical side of setting up your business.

If you prefer listening to audio, there’s a also a monthly audio component where you will receive audio tips every month on how to grow your affiliate business quickly!

There’s also a monthly live case study of mega successful affiliate promotions. This is the real eye-opening part of the membership because you will really learn a lot of advanced techniques here.

I also had a look at the “mystery” business-in-a-box for this month, and in my opinion, that is the most valuable part of the whole package. I know I will definitely be using it to increase my income in the next few months. :)

CONS

The blueprint and the videos are aimed more for beginning and intermediate affiliates. If you are earning at least $2,000 a month online from affiliate marketing, then you won’t gain much from these. But if you aren’t, then you really need to get in and give the membership a real go. The monthly price is a real steal for the amazing value provided, if only to get the business-in-a-box package, let alone for the heaps of content within.
