The Right Way, and the Wrong Way, to Follow up with New Emails in Your  Back Office

The Right Way, and the Wrong Way, to Follow up with New Emails in Your Back Office

  Recently we were at one of our Mastermind live events in Fiji, and I was talking with Celine, one of our Diamond members. Celine started promoting about three months ago, and she had a very good question for me … “Matt, when we see people’s email in our MOBE back office, whether it’s new leads or customers, to what extent can we get in touch with those people, or should we leave them alone completely and let the MOBE office follow up with them? ” This is a really important question, because it applies to all MOBE consultants … When you go to your MOBE back office and you see new email address, whether it’s a new opt-in or someone who actually buys a product, you should contact them. But there’s a right way, and a wrong way to do it. First of all, let’s talk about email CAN-SPAM Laws. A few years back, there were some unethical marketers mass e-mailing millions of people and pushing their products. In response, the authorities set up regulations called the CAN-SPAM Laws, where technically you cannot take email addresses of people who haven’t yet given you their permission, and add them into your own email autoresponder so that you can start following up. People must “opt-in” their name and email for you to contact them. In reality, it’s very unlikely that some federal agency is going to come chasing after you because you take one email address and add them into an autoresponder. But I’m going leave that for you to decide. Personally, if I was starting out in this industry...
How to Brand Yourself Even If You Don’t Have Any Sales?

How to Brand Yourself Even If You Don’t Have Any Sales?

If you’re brand new to the “Make Money Online” niche, it can be quite intimidating to put yourself out there. You have a burning desire to build your brand as quickly as possible, but you still haven’t made any money online, so how in the world do you get started? When I first started, I used to think about this all the time, because I had absolutely no results. My biggest struggle was figuring out how to position myself so people would actually want to buy from me and follow me on Facebook. This is a very common obstacle that every affiliate marketer must overcome in the beginning, so let me explain three simple ways you can start branding yourself—even if you haven’t made a sale yet online … 1. Be Completely Honest with Your Prospect First of all, let’s discuss what not to do. Many people try to “fake it until they make it.” They try to come across as if they’re making all this money when in fact they’re not. This is something you definitely don’t want to do, because number one, most people can see right through it—and number two, it’s not really that honest. It’s a little bit disingenuous to pretend you’re making a lot of money when you’re not—putting yourself out there as if you’ve made all this money and you have all the success when you haven’t. In the end you’ll look like a fraud, especially if someone goes behind you and checks the facts. So my first piece of advice is just to be very honest about the fact that you’re brand...
THE TURNING POINT

THE TURNING POINT

Hey, Every single wealthy person has experienced their Turning Point. I’m talking about that moment in your life, where your desire to become wealthy outweighs the warm comfort zone of staying where you are. Desire transforms into commitment. Commitment to not just study the principles, but to actually apply them with pigheaded stubbornness. If you haven’t had your Turning Point yet, listen to this story where I tell you about mine. I hope it inspires you to make the right decision for yourself and commit to becoming financially free today. By the way, this clip is from a Las Vegas event we did not too long ago. We will soon be doing our biggest event of 2017 there as well. It’s brand new, and is called the ‘Get More Customers‘ Summit. Dates: August 4th – 6th Whatever business you’re in – whether it’s affiliate marketing or you’re running a hairdressing salon, you’ll be able to take this training and apply it to your business. Each speaker is from a different industry and has mastered one particular form of ‘customer-getting.’ They’ll share openly with you from stage how you can apply what they know to YOUR business. Sales will be very ‘light’ at this event – I’m making sure that attendees come away from this thinking, “this was by far the most valuable 3 day training I’ve ever been to, and I know I’ll be able to 10X my money on what I invested to be here with just a few of these strategies.” Get all the details here. If you happen to be a Gold Masterclass client of mine,...

How to Find the Best Affiliate Offers to Promote?

  When you’re looking for good products to promote as an affiliate, it’s important your products be good for your customers, your list, and also good for conversions. You want to make sure that when you are promoting the best offers that pay you well. But how do you go about finding them? The answer is quite simple … Priority #1: Find an Affiliate Network to Promote If you’re an affiliate marketer, you’re basically promoting someone else’s product, event, or service—and you’re getting paid a commission every time you refer them a customer. Affiliate networks offer many different products and offers you can you choose, so you can pick and choose which ones you want to promote. There are many different affiliate networks out there … For example, one of the bigger ones is Clickbank.com. ClickBank is definitely one of the giants in the industry. There’s another network called Commission Junction, and another I’d recommend called Udemy.com. Another great choice for you is www.mobemarketplace.com—the marketplace I’m building now. It’s still in its very infant stages, so it’s a lot smaller than ClickBank of course, but hopefully one day it will be comparable. The first thing you need to do is pick a product on one of these affiliate networks. Scroll through them, and you’ll be able to pick products that relate to what your list is looking for. You never want to promote something to your audience if it’s not really congruent with what they’re looking for. Priority #2: Find Your Audience It’s also very important to figure out your audience. Ask yourself the following questions to match your...
How to Negotiate and Save Yourself Millions?

How to Negotiate and Save Yourself Millions?

If you’ve been following me for a little while, you probably know that negotiating is a very big part of what I do—and it’s something I continuously stress. When I was first getting started, I really wish someone had taught me the importance of negotiating, so today I want to share some very valuable advice with you. As you build up your business, especially when it’s in that start-up mode, things will be moving very quickly. But just remember to take that extra little amount of time to make sure you’re getting the best deal you can. You need to negotiate for everything, and here’s why … The Huge Lesson I Learned about ‘Gross’ vs. ‘Net’ Profits I remember the first time my company ever crossed $1 million in gross revenue. I didn’t get to keep all of that of course, because we had bills to pay, and we were paying a lot of affiliate commissions even back then. But I remember logging into my Infusionsoft account that day and seeing all those zeros. It was a great feeling when I finally crossed a million dollars. Then a few months later, it was my birthday on January 28—and that was also the day my company crossed $1 million net. It was the first time in my life I could log into a bank account, and see a million dollars cash. And I felt pretty great about that. I stayed very busy for a few months, and then one day I logged back into that same bank account to see how we were doing … I was shocked that there...
