5 MORE Ways To Increase Your Internet Sales

In my previous post “5 Ways To Increase Your Internet Sales” I started a list that I thought might be worth continuing… That is if you’re still committed to the 1 Percent Improvement Doctrine which is all about doing the LITTLE THINGS that make a BIG DIFFERENCE.

  1. Figure out Twitter – and start testing one useful Twitter a day
  2. Put up a new blog post – and make sure you use a service like Pingomatic.com to get your blog out to the proper places – I explained this to our Platinum Members recently at Internet Technical Mastery. It’s easy to do within WordPress…
  3. Surprise one of your customers today and do an endorsement of them to your entire database.
  4. Send out a press release or announcement to your local papers about a newsworthy tidbit you can share
  5. Share some good news with those on your database (they are sick and tired of bad news … it’s everywhere!)

If you have other ideas, please add them as a comment right here and make sure you include your URL so that a backlink is created back to your website or blog. The BETTER the suggestions, the MORE people will click through to your site…!

But then again you knew that – if not, you’re a prime candidate for our Internet Mastery Silver Membership!

5 Ways To Increase Your Internet Sales

You already know about my 1 Percent Improvement Doctrine, but the question is what can you do TODAY to IMPROVE by 1%? If you could do just one of the following things each day, imagine what would happen to your results?

  1. Write a new short blog post about something you saw through Google Alerts
  2. Post a useful comment on a forum or blog that your perfect customers commonly frequent
  3. Send a Top 10 list or helpful article to your clients and prospects
  4. Distribute just one article to the e-zine banks and directories for them to post (for free) all over the Internet for you
  5. Get a Flip cam and create a short 60-second video with a tip your clients and prospects would find useful (making sure your website is mentioned in the video) – and post it on YouTube

I’ve said it before – this is NOT rocket science. It’s the methodical, disciplined people who constantly and CONSISTENTLY out-perform their peers – leveraging the 1 percent improvement doctrine through the SHEER TENACITY of compounding.

1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1% 1% X 1% X 1%…

YouTube Tip

Wonder how you can get a ‘pop’ on your videos posted to YouTube? Check out today’s Exponential Tip – I got 18 views on the FIRST day this went live with NO promotion whatsoever, plus it wasn’t even in English or a language I understand!

Cristian Mina contacted me to translate my book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort” into Romanian version of the study book. The first thing I did was ask him to translate the sales page which has been uploaded to the site.

With this text, I was able to run it through Rapid Reader and create a YouTube Video. I sent the URL to Cristian who then edited the Title and Tags.

With less than an hour of effort, I uploaded it and in the first day got 18 views – building the SEO rankings AHEAD of the launch of the sales page FOLLOWED by the book’s translation.

Why wait until the book is ready to start BUILDING ORGANIC TRAFFIC?!?!

Welcome to my world of Exponential Thinking!

Ka-Ching!

[Psst! If you think 18 views on the first day is nothing to celebrate, you don't understand my 1 percent improvement doctrine and philosophy] click on the hyperlink and you’ll see where I’m coming from and where this will go!

There are now more than 1,900 views of that video…

Oh and another thing – these are ALL NEW LEADS that searched in ROMANIAN = they probably would never have come across me or my products and services any other way…

Does that excite you as much as it does me?

This is the mindset that I teach, you can check out my website at www.MarcDussault.com and see what tickles your fancy. I’d love to help you get this mindset, the one that Unleashes the Exponential Potential that is within you right now.

YouTube Tip: 1 percent

People keep asking me how they can be more successful, make more money and it’s right there in front of them… and best of all, it’s easy…

Preeminence = ZERO client acquisition cost

Just by ‘being on the Internet’, stuff happens.

I have a website devoted to helping family businesses deal with succession issues.

You might not know that…

“Several years after completing an Bachelor of Engineering Degree, Dr Dussault went on to acquire an Executive MBA. Subsequently, as a part-time faculty member, he taught in the MBA program as well as completed coursework towards a Ph.D. in entrepreneurship, family business, organisational behaviour and information technology management while he doubled his companies’ sales and expanded his companies’ geographic reach.

Upon his arrival in Australia, Dr Dussault continued his doctoral research in e-commerce business models, focusing on stakeholder analysis and strategic decision-making, completing his 400-page thesis (with over 700 references) in a record 3 months. He was conferred a Doctorate in Business Administration (DBA) degree from Southern Cross University.

Recently, Dr Dussault completed a post-graduate law degree at the prestigious University of New South Wales. Investigating the selection of optimal tax and financial planning strategies for wealth creation and asset protection, he was in the unique position of learning the most powerful strategies sitting amongst Australian Tax Office inspectors and auditors!

Dr Dussault is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of Management as well as the recipient of the highly acclaimed Company Directors Course Diploma 2005 bestowed upon him by the well respected Australian Institute of Company Directors. He is recognised as an Associate Stockbroking by the Securities and Derivatives Industry Association of Australia.”

But that doesn’t matter, someone figured it out and sent me this e-mail:

Website Contact Request:
I’m interested in Dr. Dussault’s research into family business and how it
applies to family businesses in Australia.  Does he lecture/present on
family business topics such as succession?  I organise conferences…

—— End of Forwarded Message

This is a ZERO COST PROSPECT acquired automatically via a passive Exponential Internet Marketing Strategy. I could have spent HOURS searching for this person, proposed my products and services and still not work with this organisation…

I don’t know what the future holds for this opportunity, but my love of family businesses will come through in our discussions and I am cautiously optimistic that it will be the beginning of a long-term win-win-win-win relationship for myself, the organisation, its members and our clients.

Stay tuned… as things keep moving…

Onward and upward!

P.S.
So many people, when they realise how much I’ve accomplished are ‘mesmerised’ by the results and outcomes I’ve produced – what some fail to realise is that it’s continuous and never-ending improvement that makes the difference.

It all adds up in the end – when EVERYONE sees the FINAL RESULT.

Most people are oblivious to the individual small steps it takes to get to the ultimate outcome. Small steps anyone can make, but many don’t.

I am not quite sure why that is, it’s just is the way it is. That’s also why those of us who do the 1 percent improvement on a regular, disciplined basis – get all the results and rewards.

Linked In Strategy You Might Not Know About

Today’s post is about a little known Linked In tool you might want to consider, it’s called the Reading List – it’s a list of books that you’re reading that LinkedIn maintains within your profile. With a 5,000 word comment field, I am sure there is a lot that can be done with it.

I am currently testing it with my first submission with a blatant self-promotional comment that I will edit later on.

I often take notes and extract distinctions that I could quite easily place here and refer to – the question is whether or not LinkedIn will make it easier to access that list in the future…

For the time being, this is a ‘new’ option to consider if you’re looking for that extra 1 percent improvement.

If you don’t know what www.LinkedIn.com is, you really need to subscribe to one of our Memberships, you can start off with the least expensive program, the Internet Mastery Silver Momentum Membership for $97/month simply because NOT knowing this is costing you MORE than $97/month in lost sales, leads and FREE traffic.

P.S.

If you’re keen to improve by MORE than 1 percent, you’ll want to check out another Linked In strategy I highlighted on www.AustralianBlogs.com.au that explains how to post your blog on www.Linkedin.com.

As you can well see, each 1 percent improvement on its own is quick and easy. The thing is that it all adds up to FREE traffic that ends up buying from you BECAUSE they know you exist and have something of value to offer.

If they don’t find you, they can’t buy from you.

Make sure you subscribe to all my blogs

I just realised I took it for granted that you know I have MULTIPLE BLOGS…

One of my most prestigious clients didn’t know I launched my Personal Mastery Blog a few weeks ago…

So this post is to make sure you know I have multiple blogs so you don’t miss the 1% idea that might uncover a $1,245, $3,697 or $16,788 windfall for you…

Click here if you’re in business and want to grow your business quickly even with a shoestring budget.

Click here if you want to achieve Personal Mastery and unlock your Exponential Potential™.

Click here if you are into blogging for profits. I am a contributing blogger on www.AustralianBlogs.com.au.

I suggest you subscribe and determine for yourself if you want to have that ‘conversation’ with me and choose to opt-out rather than not opt-in and miss out on what could make a difference to you.

This is my 1 percent improvement for today.

P.S.

Of course my ADDITIONAL 1 percent improvement over the next few days will be posting this message on my other blogs so the readers of those blogs know about this one!

Here is your 1 percent improvement idea for today…

What can YOU think of that some of YOUR clients might not know about what you’re up to?

It’s the easiest and fastest 1 percent improvement you can do right now to improve your results.

The NEXT 1% is to get MORE TRAFFIC to your site by posting comments on my blogs.

This is TOTALLY free. When you do add these comments, make sure you include a backlink to your site that people can click on to see what you’re all about.

Make sure this backlink is formatted as shown below.

http://www.YourWebsite.com

Don’t make the comment a self-serving advertisement – ADD VALUE to the original blog post so that the reader APPRECIATES and ACKNOWLEDGES your point of view and WANTS to check out who you are. If it’s a blatant ‘ad’, (1) I won’t approve it and (2) no one would click through anyway. That is NOT exponential.

Remember the cornerstone principle of an Exponential Mindset™ – Create and GIVE MORE VALUE and you will be rewarded. If you violate this principle, you’ll waste time and simply won’t get any momentum started.

Be a LEADER which means LEAD BY EXAMPLE – do what works and be generous.

Every 1% percent improvement counts

I recently uploaded two YouTube videos that are ‘product’ description videos for my Marc-Ka-Ching Kube™, definitely a long tail niche marketing product.

BEFORE I even posted the videos on my site, there were 16 views of the first video with NO effort at all. The second one is a ‘non-publicised’ video for people who buy the Marc-Ka-Ching Kube™ that IS public on YouTube.

Having people automatically view videos is pretty cool by itself, but more importantly what the video does for me is increase the visitor experience ON THE PAGE. A 21 second video increases the visitor experience by orders of magnitude.

Search engines such as Google love that. They know that if people stay on a page LONGER, it’s a BETTER PAGE = a higher ranking.

Bottom line, every 1 percent improvement counts because it adds up at the end of the year!

P.S.

Did you know that 5% of Internet Marketers make more than the other 95% COMBINED? It’s a startling statistic, one that you can reverse for yourself by attending our Internet Millionaire Marketing Event in Melbourne on Saturday 6 December 2008.

The Internet is the easiest thing that’s hard to do.”

This blog has lots of FREE advice, imagine what I can teach you in a full 8-hour day!

1% Improvement = Your Ultimate Goal or Outcome

1% Improvement – Google it and see what comes up!

Go to Google and type in “1% Improvement” using the quotes or click here.

Yep, that’s my YouTube video that’s in the #1 WORLDWIDE position. Do you know how much I PAID to get it there?!?!

$0.

That’s because it happened 1% at a time, just like the video explains…
Google “Exponential Growth Strategist” and see who comes up AT THE TOP OF THE WORLD WIDE RANKINGS…

So what’s the point?

I guess it’s as straight forward as aim to improve at least 1% each and every day and see what happens.

For example, you might not know that you can purchase .com.au domain names for $36.50 for 2 years. The reason I am telling you this is because a friend and client was feeling ripped off by a Melbourne company trying to sell him the SAME thing for $140…!

The 1% is that if he didn’t know, maybe you don’t either. It’s FREE for me to tell you and it’s priceless to you if you’re like me and own HUNDREDS of domain names!

You’re welcome.

Onward and upward!

P.S.

I can hear you all the way over here… It can’t be that simple and easy.

Guess what?!?!

It is. 1% per day COMPOUNDED = 3,778% in ONE YEAR.

You either IMPROVE at that rate or you GET WORSE at that rate.

Ouch!

Did you pick up a few of my 1% improvements?

If you clicked on any of the links and video – that’s ONE MORE CLICK FOR MY RANKINGS…

The fact that you are reading this is 1% improvement of THIS blog’s rankings…

It all adds up, 1% at a time.

Inexpensive .com.au Domain names

This is going to be quick…

I’m not sure you know that you can purchase .com.au domain names for $36.50 for 2 years from www.ireckon.com.au. The reason I am telling you this is because a friend and client was feeling ripped off by a Melbourne company trying to sell him the SAME thing for $140…!

The 1% is that if he didn’t know, maybe you don’t either. It’s FREE for me to tell you and it’s priceless to you if you’re like me and own HUNDREDS of domain names!

That’s it. That’s my 1% for today!

Onward and upward!

P.S.

For fun, Google “1% Improvement” and see what comes up in the #1 position… Watch the YouTube video if you haven’t already – that’ll explain why 1% might not seem like much, but it’s totally exponential!

Testimonials are only as good as the RESULTS

As an Exponential Marketing Strategist, I am often asked if testimonials are as powerful as people claim they are.

The answer is both yes and no.

Yes if they include RESULTS and no if they don’t.

If someone gives you a testimonial like “Marc is a great guy, he’s charismatic and really knows his stuff”. That’s really nice, but has limited value and influence even though it makes you feel really good.
However, if someone tells you something like this…

“Besides … I would like you & Marc to share in my happiness with the outcome I achieved from the … seminar I held with … Bank and NSW Dept of … I got 5 new clients (value $80,000) and 8 prospects (value $100,000).”

This is a much more powerful testimonial. As you’ve noticed, I took out the confidential information – because this is a REAL TESTIMONIAL. Even when information needs to be removed, it stills has MASSIVE impact.

The key is to first solicit the testimonials and then actually USE THEM. Most people don’t use them – they sit idle in someone’s filing cabinet or in an e-mail folder, never seeing the light of day.

So there you have it. Another 1% improvement that you can easily make today.

Onward and upward!
Marc

P.S.

What’s it worth to you to get yourself on Page 1 of Google?

Type in 1 percent improvement in Google and you’ll see my YouTube video called “Make More Money With 1 Percent Improvements“.

It’s one page one… You can do the same with your products and services… But that’s a post for another day!
