Tips & Advice on Online Lead Generation For Your Home Based Business
At this stage, I’ve probably seen tens of thousands of people get started with online marketing.
I’ve seen some go on to become wildly successful. I’ve seen some people who have no experience go on to make hundreds of thousands—even millions of dollars.
And I’ve also seen a lot more people who quit. Most of them drop out of the business within six months. They’re not doing anything to make money, then they get upset because they’re not making money. And now they’re not doing Internet marketing anymore.
Let’s say you have a list of 1,000 email subscribers. You can pick different segments of that list and tailor your message to the different segments.
Segmenting helps you make a lot more money based on the characteristics and behavior of that segment.
For example, imagine you decide to be an affiliate and promote someone else’s webinar … Many of the big affiliate marketers do at least one webinar every week.
If the webinar is on a Thursday night, you should start promoting it a few days before. So on Tuesday, you would send your list an email about the ‘exciting new webinar’.
Let’s say 25% of those people open the email—that means 250 people opened the email. Out of those 250 people, let’s say 50 of them click the registration link for the webinar and register for the webinar.
That means 200 people opened the email, but for some strange reason, they did not register for the webinar.
I’ve been waiting a LONG time to show you this. It’s a video sneak peak of my new resort in Costa Rica.
It’s not 100% done yet (I’d say the renovations are about 75% complete), but it’s getting there.
This may be a little off topic, but go with me here for a second …

Can you ride a bicycle?
How did you learn to ride a bike?
YES, you were taught! And even though you may not have ridden one in years, you know you still can, right?
Making money—making millions online—is no different!
I just got off the phone …
“I made $130,000 last week. Matt, I was making money even while I slept …
Oh, by the way … I make $130,000 EVERY week!” He said …
Yes, that’s EXACTLY what my friend told me when I talked with him yesterday!
$130,000 a month = $520,000 a month = $6.7 million a year!
Imagine you go in to McDonald’s, and you order just one Big Mac. What’s the next question they usually ask you?
They say “Would you like fries or a drink with that?” And if you say yes, then they ask, “Would you like to upgrade to a Medium or Large?” If you say yes, of course they’ll upgrade your order and give you fries or a large drink.
All the employees are trained to ask these questions and ‘upsell’ every customer, and McDonald’s requires it’s employees to try to sell more food to all of their customers.
As for me, I definitely have some experience in this in the last seven years. There are people out there who like to trash MOBE, trash talk me, and definitely trash our products.
Often, when you’re reading these bad reviews (fake reviews), down at the bottom, after they’re done trashing you or other people, of course they conveniently recommend their own solution. It’s just going to happen a lot, so that’s the first thing you need to accept.
When you become successful in this industry—as an affiliate marketer or ‘instant guru’—and you start building a brand for yourself, a lot of these people will come along and start talking trash about you.
I was talking with my friend Susan from New South Wales, and she asked, “Matt, I have young kids, should I teach them to be entrepreneurs or to go to school and get very good grades?”
This is a very good question, and it’s ironic Susan is from South Wales, because right now I’m in the small town of Life Valley, Australia, where I actually grew up. The town has a population of only about 15 people, and the nearest city is about 30 minutes away.
Right now I’m standing at the end of the driveway of my old house—in the spot we got picked up by the school bus every morning.
Hola from Costa Rica.
It’s been awhile … let me bring you up to speed on what’s been happening.
I’ve now been here for the last 2 months. When I flew over, I intended to be here for 3 weeks … maybe 4 weeks tops.
But, finishing up the MOBE Resort has taken a lot longer than I anticipated.
