Exponential Branding 101: Own Your Own Word

By now, you know I own the word antimimeticisomorphism – which is having fun doing out-of-the-ordinary things that create extra-ordinary results with the least amount of effort at the lowest cost. You can Google antimimeticisomorphism and all 400+ references are mine. That being said, you can also create an ACRONYM like Kellogg’s LCMs and leave it to people’s imagination to come up with their own interpretation.

Totally Exponential – IF you can create enough exposure to have ‘some’ people to start thinking about it.

Go on and try to find out the answer – it’s fascinating to see the forum discussions out there = FREE branding!

I like it!

The 2009 Exponential Business Building Bootcamp Is Coming!

As a reader or subscriber to this blog, you’ve been receiving hundreds of exponential business building tips and techniques to help you better position your business so that you can achieve better sales and profits at the least cost possible. I know the value that I give in these blogs are priceless, but there is something you can’t get from a blog – IMMERSION. An Exponential Mindset is a WAY OF THINKING.Reading blog posts is DOING, which is ‘good’, but not excellent and certainly not OUTSTANDING.

Just as in sports, in business there are different levels of participation:

  1. Occasional Spectator. This is the type of person who watches life happen, never getting into the game, not aware of the dynamics of the season, the teams’ rankings, the players, etc. It’s all quite superficial and is a take it or leave it proposition. If the game is not at a convenient time, it won’t be watched.
  2. Passionate Spectator. This is the type of person who has a schedule that revolves around the game schedule – rankings, stats and player injuries are memorised and repeated at any opportunity to prove his/her loyalty to the team.
  3. Stadium Spectator: Face paint is not a must, but a strong recommendation! The enthusiasm for this person is beyond the norm. Chanting is a must as is male-bounding with other mates who are there for the same reason – have a great time
  4. Player on the field, but not in starting line up or ‘first string player’. This person is ON the field, playing the game with THOUSANDS watching. he/she is there to play – FULL ON. Give it all he/she’s got. His/her name gets on the trophy just as much as the first stringers because he/she is ON the team, ON the field.
  5. Superstar Player. This is someone who is committed beyond the basics to fully and totally immerse himself/herself into the craft, art, science, ethos and philosophy of the sport to BEcome a SUPERSTAR and role model. He/she has coaches and practices more than the ‘average player’ his/her devotion to the sport is well rarely seen because this person is driven from the inside to achieve greatness. He/she has the Mindset Of A Champion – not seeking to beat others, but to become the best he/she can be – often (usually) leading to a Championship ring or trophy.
  6. Legend or Icon. This is not a player – this is someone who DEFINES the sport – Donald Bradman, Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Roger Federer, Wayne Gretzky in Ice Hockey, Pele and now Beckham in Football, Mark Spitz, The Thorpedo and now Michael Phelps in the pool.

So this is the question I have for you – at what level are you playing at in your business or career?

To really master any skill, you MUST immerse yourself to not just learn, but master your craft. In business, that means mastering your BUSINESS GROWTH, which has foundations in sales and marketing. An Exponential Mindset will not just put you on the field and win a few games, in time and with discipline, it will win you championships and with commitment can make you an iconic legend.

Without it, ultimate success is a roll of the dice, a luck of the draw or worse – the short end of the stick.

This year’s Exponential Business Building Bootcamp is going to be like no other – BECAUSE this is the middle of the worst recession we have seen in recent times – yet our clients are increasing sales 20%, 50% and quite a few more than 100%…

BECAUSE as elite entrepreneurs they know that a recession the EASIEST time to GROW a business.

Very FEW entrepreneurs know that the middle of a recession is the EASIEST time to grow a business. That’s why the ones who know get the biggest rewards, often to the bewilderment of their colleagues (and competitors) who are oblivious to how they do it and why it’s so EASY.

Curious?

You should be. The few who GROW their businesses in both good times and bad have what is called an Exponential Mindset – the ability and skill to see opportunities that others just never see, let alone consider.

This is never more the case than when the economy takes a downturn and times get tough.

Here’s something you wouldn’t expect — The tougher the times, the EASIER it is to GROW a business… if you know what to do.

Still a little sceptical? Cynical or at least a little apprehensive?

Hmmm…. That’s interesting BECAUSE that is precisely WHY a recession is the EASIEST time to GROW a business.

Intrigued?

Well that’s a start.

A first step toward unlocking this well-kept secret.

It’s a secret because ONCE YOU KNOW – you would NEVER, in a million years share it with a competitor. That’s why you haven’t heard about it before.

Recession Trends

In a recent article in The Australian Financial Review, Hannah Tattersall highlighted that the casual Friday trend of showing up at work in jeans and a polo short has become another one of the casualties of the recession. Let me tell you why articles like this one is important for you to know as an Exponential Marketing Aficionado…

How To Get 20/20 Foresight

How To Kill Your Business Twice As Fast

I can’t hold back, I have to get this off my chest. In the past 2 to 3 weeks several people have been struggling to get stuff done. They KNOW what to do and HOW to do it, but can’t get it done… WHY? Because they have their mates doing it at “mates rates” which basically means “when time allows, I’ll get around to it MATE…”

“She be right MATE.”

She ain’t right MATE. She’s p_ _ _ _ed!

She needs to get this done NOW, not tomorrow, not soon, not over the weekend, not next week…

NOW.

N-O-W.

When you deal with mates, you deal with being pushed to the end of the queue, at the bottom of the to do list. This is even worse during a recession when times are tough and money’s tight. The ‘high paying’, no make that the PAYING clients will get ALL the attention and ALL the results.

Stop It!

Otherwise you’re going to KILL your business twice as fast.

There, I’ve said it. I can relax and get back to work.

Don’t get me wrong, I do lots of work with mates, but I don’t expect mates rates and I pay on time to GET ON TIME SERVICE.

Think about what it’s costing you NOT to get stuff done…

Especially in a recession when the competition is tight, margins are slim and EVERY customer and sale counts…

Double Your Sales THIS MONTH

Want to know how to DOUBLE YOUR SALES THIS MONTH?

Work 120 hours/week ALL MONTH LONG. That’s right, you read correctly – work 120 hours/week ALL MONTH LONG and see what happens.

I speak from experience – that’s what I did (20+ years ago) and it was the SINGLE BEST INVESTMENT I EVER MADE.

Let me tell you what happens.

First, you’ll get though ALL your to do lists and will feel like a friggin’ hero.

Second, you’ll get to stuff that has been holding you back for weeks, months maybe even years.

Third, you’ll start to produce results you’ve never seen before BECAUSE you’re working 3 times more than anyone else or TWICE as much as someone putting in 60 hours/week.

Yeah, yeah I can hear you all the way over here…

“Life is to be lived – not to be worked.”

That is such a lame excuse and great REASON not to produce RESULTS.

BECAUSE what you don’t yet know (unless you’ve done it) is that at 120 hours/week, you get into a HYPER ZONE OF ACTIVITY THAT CAN’T BE EXPERIENCED ANY OTHER WAY.

I’ll give you a metaphor that will prove it to you – Have you ever driven 100 km/hr and then all of a sudden reduce your speed to 50 Km/hr and felt as though you could walk faster?

That is called perceptual contrast.

It’s the same thing with the 120 hours/week. 60 Hours/week is NOT ENOUGH CONTRAST – you have to go WELL BEYOND YOUR CURRENT LIMITS to LEARN the DISTINCTIONS OF SUCCESS.

Give it some thought – it’s NOT a lifestyle recommendation – it’s a TEMPORARY SUGGESTION.

Let me know if your ‘man or woman enough’ to give it a go.

Onward and upward!

P.S.

What you are going to learn – IF YOU DO THIS, is where your time is wasted and how you can become MORE efficient and effective with your time. Your brain (and body) is going to get tired and will star to find EASIER, FASTER ways to get the SAME or MORE amount of work done WITHOUT compromising RESULTS.

The sports analogy is simple – I’ve been training/playing squash 2 hours/day for the last 2 weeks. Today, My partner had to leave ‘early’ and we only played for 1 hour. At the end of the hour, we both realised that it was the ‘easiest’ 1-hour of squash we have played in a long time.

Perceptual contrast – it’s massively powerful. Give it a go and post your comments on this blog – I’ll give you personal insights and suggestions offline if you do!

Everyone who signs up for the Recession-Proofing video will also get a ‘Get Paid Quicker’ Audio segment i am going to record early next week. It will be a handful of simple strategies to get your receivables paid up TWICE as quickly and even get people to PAY UP FRONT… Yes, ESPECIALLY in these tough times, it’s possible.

Life’s not fair, guess what? Neither is business!

Today’s post is about what separates Champions from Challengers, Challengers from Competitors, Competitors from Participants and finally Participants from Spectators.

I am currently competing at the World Master’s Squash Championships in Christchurch, New Zealand and chronicling my exploits on my Personal Mastery Blog.

Yesterday’s post discussed the ‘Kryptonite’ phenomenon in sufficient detail that I won’t repeat it here, but there is one additional distinction that I didn’t quite articulate sufficiently that has more to do with business than squash so I will post it here.

You have to be MUCH better to beat a lesser competitor when that competitor is a ‘scrappy’ hacker style player. Let me be crystal clear with the squash analogy first – if an unorthodox player wins, he wins.

That’s how the game is played. All points count. Elegant masterful winners as well as off-the-racquet-frame spinning shots that die 1″ above the tin. If you’ve played competitive squash, you know what I’m talking about. The funny grip, the two-foot stance facing the front wall, the inside-out boasts from the weirdest angles…

In business it’s exactly the same – the ‘scrappy’ competitor may win a client today, tomorrow and the next day after that, but if you stay the course and improve, you WILL get to the point where you can dictate terms and conditions and set the rules for you to win.

In academic circles, it’s called the ‘terminal degree’ – no, not the degree that kills you (even though it might feel that way!), but the LAST DEGREE you end up with.

There is a similar, but quite different concept in corporate development called the Peter Principle which is not quite where I’m headed with today’s distinction.

THE GOOD NEWS: Every competitor has a point where his/her ‘scrappy’ skills won’t take them any further. Most people don’t realise this is the case, but if YOU DO, you can use that and leverage it to YOUR ADVANTAGE.

THE BAD NEWS: You have to be a LOT better to overcome the ‘scrappiness’. You can’t just be a little better, you have to be a LOT better.

Case in point – I played a match today that I lost BECAUSE I couldn’t put enough pressure to PROHIBIT my opponent from using his unorthodox shots. I was the BETTER PLAYER TECHNICALLY – but he had a weapon that I couldn’t neutralise.

I wasn’t better enough. Even though that is poor grammar, I’m sure you understand.

With your sales, marketing and product/service delivery, you have to be MUCH BETTER to become the DOMINANT PLAYER in your ‘space’ – whatever that may be.

The more specific you are about your niche, the easier it is for you to develop the necessary skills to be ‘better enough’…

There you go – another distinction that if you think about it and APPLY IT can have a dramatic influence on your results as you continue to push…

Warren Buffett agrees with me

Buy low, sell high.

What this means for your BUSINESS is to keep thinking and acting ANTIMIMETICISOMORPHICALLY.

Don’t do what everyone else is doing – otherwise you will suffer the same fate.

Yeah, I know… Easier said than done – not for our Platinum Members who are being taught what to do to RECESSION PROOF THEIR BUSINESSES and what to do WHILE IN A RECESSION.

In fact, I extracted the 48-minute session from the recent 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp and have made it available on-line at a never-before offered price of $17. That’s right $17 so you have no excuse.

Bootcamp Encore Presentation in Melbourne in December

I’m sure you’ve heard of our Bootcamp – listen to this invitation to get on the court with me and start playing your Business and/or Internet ‘A’ game.

Due to popular demand, we’re staging an ‘encore presentation’ of the 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp

Wouldn’t you like to have such great response that you have to perform ‘encore’ services for your clients and prospects?

Exponential Marketing Strategies produce those kinds of results – making sure you are only selling to people who want to buy from you.

For example, we’re looking for the most committed business entrepreneurs and Internet Marketers who want to out-perform, out-sell and out-market their competitors with the least amount of effort. That’s the KEY for us – to do it creatively, in a fun and inexpensive way so it’s within everyone’s reach. Anyone who wants to learn these strategies can. That’s why we’re successful – we cater and focus our energies on people who want to take home an extra $50,000 to $100,000 this year without working longer hours.

They want, as explained in the YouTube video, to play their ‘A game’ with other like-minded players who have the same outcome. They know that playing with equal strength or BETTER PLAYERS, their game will improve and therefore their RESULTS/REWARDS!

P.S.

The Bootcamp is the IDEAL opportunity to get 2009 launched on the right foot – attend, make your plans, fine tune them and launch them in the new year. As Tony Robbins calls it, “new year, new life!”

Plus we have a one-day Internet Millionaire Marketing Bonus Day included!

Bootcamp Graduate makes $15,000

Sam Kritsotakis, of Eskae Jeweller just sent me an e-mail explaining several clients who have come ‘out of the blue’ to BUY from him. These include referrals from EXISTING clients…

The reason I created this post is that there is no ‘direct connection’ between the ACTIONS Sam has taken since he attended our 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp and these sales…

BUT Sam knows something most people don’t.

He KNOWS all about Deepak Chopra’s Exponential Mindset™ philosophy:

Release yourself from the expectation of the outcome so you can tap into a discontinuity gap in the universe to instantly synchronise with a non-local correlation that will trigger a quantum leap of creativity and innovation to help you manifest infinite knowledge and boundless possibilities enabling a conspiracy of improbabilities that create your ultimate destiny.”

That’s the thing about an Exponential Mindset™ you think and ACT in ways that harness the power of the universe in ways that make you look ‘lucky’…

Funny how ‘luck’ seems to follow some people around whereas others don’t.

Failure to Thrive = DEATH

Today’s post is a somber one, one that highlights why some babies die or fail to grow healthy. It’s called the Failure to Thrive syndrome.

Well documented in the medical community, it’s something that few business owners would consider relevant to them.

I beg to differ.

The Failure to Thrive in babies is not all that different from business owners who fail to grow their businesses, their wealth and consciousness. The SOURCE of the problem for business people is the lack of motivation, enthusiasm and support available within the small business sector.

After prolonged exposure to a cold and heartless environment, (too) many business owners just give up and capitulate to the forces of the “failure to thrive syndrome”.

I’ve seen it all too often – especially when I was presenting at ‘FREE public seminars’. The person would be sitting there – OFTEN ONLY because the event was free. They would never consider PAYING for ADVICE because they unknowingly have given up hope let alone the expectation of success.

They are sitting there – like the premature baby, in dire need of HUMAN CONTACT, AFFECTION and LOVE. But they sit there, un-engaged, distant and unresponsive.

They need the attention the most yet THEY GET THE LEAST ATTENTION – OFTEN NO ATTENTION AT ALL.

The other participants engage, participate and contribute to the session – making the situation even worse for the ignored, despondent participant(s).

He or she sees all opportunities as someone else trying to take their money away from them – not realising that most presenters WANT TO GIVE WAY MORE THAN THE COST OF THE PROGRAM / PRODUCT they are selling…

It’s really, really sad to see.

I bring this up because in the medical profession this syndrome has been documented and has been addressed for the most fragile premature babies… very successfully.

Not so in the business community.

The next time you are at an event and see someone withdraw – go to him or her and offer positive advice, support and enthusiasm for them attending – don’t be pushy, just let them know you’re there with them for that hour or two for the SAME reason they’re there – to improve themselves.

That initial touch is often all that person needs to feel connected again.

Do that with one person every time you’re at an event and let see if that helps more entrepreneurs to THRIVE!

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.

This is so important with what is going on in the Financial and Stock Markets these days. The analysts and experts all agree this situation is totally unprecedented.

We are in uncharted territory.

Anyone with a negative predisposition is going to hit the wall with full force.

Anyone who can’t pick themselves up in the morning and be self-motivated risks getting sucked into the Vortex Of Mediocrity™ that is more powerful than gravity.

I don’t mean to join the chorus of fear mongers out there, but I can see it in peoples’ faces, hear it in their tone of voice and feel it via their movements and posture.

Times are bad and everyone feels it’s going to get worse – A LOT WORSE.

With that in mind, we, as Exponential Mindset™ enthusiasts MUST stick together to make sure we don’t lose any of our colleagues.

In every CRISIS there is OPPORTUNITY…

That is the THINKING that will get us through this.

Getting Better Results is actually easy… Plan on dying in 12 months

I was just online with someone who is in my Advanced Business Coaching System that delivers daily improvement distinctions to his inbox.

An excerpt from our dialogue…

You remind me of my spiritual teacher and what he tells us to do the first thing in the morning. If I did them all, it would then be time to go back to bed.

Which is both interesting and totally true.

The GOAL is to ‘cherry pick’ the best of the suggestions and APPLY them, as my fellow Exponential Mindset Enthusiast™ explains he is doing to dramatically improve his professional and personal results.

The reason I am posting this dialogue is because once again it’s obvious to me and my colleague that improvement is within everyone’s reach yet so few actually make those changes…

Instead, they wait and expect a ‘big bang’ quantum change to happen and are disappointed, dismayed and discouraged when it doesn’t happen.

All along, the results they wanted, wished for and dreamed about were right there, in front of them WAITING FOR THEM TO REACH OUT AND CLAIM THEM.

One of the KEY questions I ask myself (every January 1) is

If I KNEW I WOULD DIE in 12 months from today, how would I live my life differently?

A few years ago, I asked myself this question and realised that if this actually happened, I would be spending the last few months of my life cleaning up loose ends.

How terrible is that?

So I got life insurance. Got a living will. Established a protocol for Guardianship and Power of Attorney. Formalised my Will and testament, setup Trusts, etc.

Now I was ready to die.

But the funny thing was it gave me even MORE drive to live longer and BETTER.

It takes a LOT of effort to think about dying and tying up loose ends, but it cathartic and very enlightening. I let go of several toxic issues once and for all and let everyone close to me know how special they WERE and ARE to me.

In some cases tears were shed in others long hugs that lasted longer than ever before.

Some inaccuracies were corrected and in some instances blame was accepted instead of deflected. More often than not, the facts and/or perceptions had been quite different and once reconciled left us both with much BETTER MEMORIES of what ‘happened’… Imagine that – ending up with BETTER memories!

What does this have to do with GROWING YOUR BUSINESS?

If you ask yourself the question:

If I KNEW I WOULD DIE in 12 months from today, how would I live my life differently?

You actually can’t focus on GROWING YOUR BUSINESS if your brain/mind/soul is focused on tying up loose ends can it?

Think about it really seriously — I did and I have to say it completely changed my perspective.

Once my loose ends were tied up, I ended up thinking about WHAT I wanted to do as well as WHAT I NO LONGER WANTED TO DO… if in fact these were my last 12 months on the planet.

That meant I had to change my business model several times, which I did.

If you’ve been around me for the past few years, you’ve seen the transformations from Jay Abraham Asia Pacific, to Empowernet and now Platinum Programs.

The revolutions and the transitions have all occurred BY DESIGN – not by default.

I urge you to start living a life of revolution by design rather than evolution by default to avoid extinction by stagnation.

It all starts 1% at a time.

I know this is going to sound self-serving, but if you haven’t yet purchased a product from me, when would NOW be a good time to make that 1% improvement?

I have products as low as $27, $47 and $97

They are specifically designed to TRANSITION YOUR REVOLUTION BY DESIGN.

Join me and my fellow Exponential Mindset Enthusiasts™ as we focus on the 1% improvement that creates extra-ordinary results so that if indeed this is our last year on this earth, it’s the best ever!

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.
Thinking about dying is an antimimeticisomorphic way of looking at growing your business.

It’s not for everyone.

Neither are extra-ordinary results.

That’s why they are called EXTRA-ordinary – they are NOT ordinary.

Give that some thought as the revelations and epiphanies can be be quite eye-opening, in some cases, life-changing.

I became much more relaxed and serene about my life, my destiny and my ambitions in a way that was totally new for me at the time.

I was ready to let go of the past and see the future in a completely different ‘light’.

Anthony Robbins says it all the time “The past does not equal the future”.

But that doesn’t mean much unless you can put the past behind you and face the future with new bewilderment, excitement and child-like enthusiasm.

For me, ‘facing death’ made me want to live more and live better.

Give it a go and let me know if you uncover any additional distinctions – I’d love to hear them!

1% Improvements are quick and easy

Today’s post is about a 1% improvement that is quick and easy and FREE.

It can pay HUGE dividends over and over again.

It’s actually TWO strategies in one.

First it’s about having an autoresponse system that when you are away from the office at an event or on leave, you have your e-mails autoresponded – but not just with a standard “I’m out of the office” message, but with something more valuable for your clients… Like David Lourdes has done below.

The second strategy is hyperlinking to my event – the Bootcamp. That means some people will click on it and go to my site. That costs nothing for David and nothing for me. It’s totally exponential.

I know that there is no sale to the Bootcamp to be made since the event is taking place, but it’s the FUTURE events, the goodwill and INTEREST I am interested in…

David is showing his suspects, prospects and clients that he is seeking out the BEST strategies for them – continuing his personal and professional development to help them…

He is aligning himself with my pre-eminence. He is creating reciprocity that I MUST acknowledge and act on – hence this Blog post…

Can you see how EASY it is to make a 1% improvement that makes a difference?

It’s so easy, yet so few people do it!

Onward and upward!
Dr Marc Dussault

P.S.
I am signing off with Dr Marc Dussault – not to be formal, but to improve my SEO rankings. I will be discussing that on the Internet Mastery Blog.

The other point I wanted to make is that when you start to make 1% improvements, they all add up. You know that from watching my 1% Improvement YouTube video.

When you Google “1% improvement – I have the top position, but that’s an Internet strategy…

The point is STOP trying to make the BIG changes and improvements. Stick to the 1%. They all add up to way more than the BIG STUFF YOU NEVER END UP DOING ANYWAY!

I mean that in a good way, I really do!

Your Next Best Step…

A little more than a week ago, I was on stage in Sydney at the 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp… On the Wednesday we focused on taking what I call “Your Next Best Step™”.

The Next Best Step™ for anyone is the easiest, least expensive and fastest thing you can do to create IMMEDIATE RESULTS.

It’s not more complicated or complex than that. UNLESS YOU MAKE IT SO.

For example, if you can’t thing of any other strategy, why not send your INACTIVE clients a “We Miss You” letter? Tell them you miss them and let them know all the things you’ve done since they last ordered from you. List them as DETAILED BULLET POINTS… If you attended the Bootcamp – TELL THEM. TELL THEM what you learnt that will help you help them…

For example:

  • I attended Dr Marc Dussault’s Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp to learn strategies to as he calls it “Compress my Pathways To Profits™” which for you means ME CREATING MORE VALUE FOR YOU THAN EVER BEFORE!
  • One of the things I’ve done immediately following the Bootcamp is change my voicemail message – call me and have a listen to it – I know you’ll agree it’s amazing. That has already saved me 15 to 20 minutes a day. I can now get to work on YOUR issues instead of playing telephone tag all day.
  • Another thing I’ve done is started a blog and registered it with www.AustralianBlogs.com.au. With the blog, I’ll be able to communicate with you informally on a regular basis about important stuff that’s relevant to you.
  • We’ve renovated our showroom to make sure you’re more comfortable when you visit us.
  • We sent our team of customer service reps to Anthony Robbins’ Firewalk seminar so they can ‘step up’ to the next level and offer you more personalised service tailored to your specific needs. We do this every year and this year is the last year he’s doing it in Australia, so next year we’ll be sending them overseas for this vital training that has contributed to our winning 7 customer service awards over the past 5 years!
  • Two of our technicians have become MCSE accredited – following 2 3-hour exams that 25% of people fail on their first attempt – we’re committed to making sure our team maintains it’s expertise and has the answers to all your questions!
  • We’ve purchased a new black box LCD2000 Model machine that outperforms the previous model by 56% “X”, reducing production time by 23% so that you get a better output/result “Y” the same day instead of having to wait to get it overnight.
  • We’ve added 3 new car park spaces for you – we rent it from the garage next door because we know it’s important for you to come in and out quickly when you are dropping something off or picking it up – that’s how much we care – your time is important to us!

You get the idea… The more you tell them, the better!

Of course you need a call to action – to get them to do business with you – that could be a promotional product, a new bundle or a workshop or presentation for them to attend…

Which brings me to another Next Best Step™ idea EVERYONE can use.

Invite your clients to attend a ‘VIP Evening’ at your offices with something of value that you can tell/teach them. For a jeweler, that could be the 4 Cs of choosing a diamond and/or how to value opals and other precious and semi-precious stones.

You could have a wine tasting event with a local vineyard and have a sommelier there as the ‘attraction’… You could hire a magician or other ‘act’…

I am sure you can be creative – the point being that be getting clients to come to you, your sales HAVE TO INCREASE. Plus there are lots of people who WON’T ATTEND, BUT WILL THINK OF YOU AND PLACE AN ORDER SOONER.

You have nothing to lose, everything to gain…

Why not give it a try?

Onward and upward!

P.S.

It’s often the simplest and easiest things that can be done TODAY that can make the BIGGEST difference.

Many people wait to ‘create a complex strategy’ that never gets deployed instead of doing what could have been done in MINUTES.

The We Miss You letter or e-mail is a one-hour investment – don’t aim for perfection – Remember “Perfection is the Poison of Profitability”. The VIP Evening is a 3-hour investment followed by the 3-hour evening session.

Do you want 101 “Next Best Steps that you can deploy in your business right away?”

Post a comment on this blog telling me WHY you want it and I’ll send it to you. How’s that for a deal? Make sure your comment is appropriate for public view since I will make it public for all to see once I moderate and accept it.

An economic downturn is an IDEAL opportunity to grow your business – exponentially

We have all heard the news lately—

The bear market is upon us… the bulls have gone home…

Interest rates are going up in the US and ‘might’ come down in Australia…

Housing starts in the US and Australia are way down…

The sub-prime crisis in the US is not even close to being over…

The price of oil is down from its high, but that’s a false win since it’s still above $115…

The Australian Dollar’s run has stopped and retreated…

The labour market is still strong – for now. The number of people SWITCHING jobs is down and new job openings are decreasing…

So how can it be an IDEAL opportunity to grow your business exponentially?!?!?

That is what over 100 keen Australian Entrepreneurs and Internet Marketers are going to learn at this year’s third annual Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp.

SOLD OUT – this year’s event will cover new content that includes HOW TO RECESSION PROOF YOUR BUSINESS – an entire new segment to arm participants to make the most of this IDEAL opportunity when most businesses will be:

* Strapped for cash
* Under-resourced
* Fighting price cutting like never before
* Negative buyer sentiment – people ‘waiting’ to buy
* Aggressive competitor tactics

For many, this will be the first time they see the Exponential Mindset™ at work – LIVE, IN PERSON and FOCUSED on REAL LIFE ISSUES.

It’s going to be an exciting 3 days – a full 36 hours.

One of the strategies that will be demonstrated is MindMapping.

They will be shown how Gideon King founder of NovaMind created these exponential results…

Within a couple of months of attending the Bootcamp, I implemented a simple strategy to ask for referrals from NovaMind customers, which increased revenues by over 50%, and had a significant flow on effect as those new customers in turn referred others.

Later on, I used the strategy of preeminence to become a recognized Mind Mapping expert worldwide, which in turn has supported growth of the business, and the development of NovaMind.

I have also used a combination of strategies, almost all of which were taught at the Bootcamp, to take a 6 year old well established company and grow the income by 81% in 60 days, while reducing expenses by approximately 20%.

When you apply them, these strategies really work!

If you want to access this exponential tool, go to the NovaMind site and download the FREE trial version – it’s an Aussie product and nothing short of incredible!

When you decide to buy it – please make sure you use my affiliate link -> CLICK HERE. And I’ll make sure you get an EXTRA EXPONENTIAL BONUS!

MindMapping is an awesome skill to have. At the Bootcamp, we’re going to cover Group MindMapping strategies that I invented about 10 years ago – it’s MindMapping taken to the next level.

Talking about taking things to the next level – whenever you come across something of value, you have a ‘duty’ to share it with people. The more you share, the more you will get back in return – either directly or INdirectly.

For example, I came across this website that’s really cool to teach you to touch type faster and more accurately…

http://www.keybr.com

There is NOTHING TO SELL YOU – just an idea that might improve your typing speed by 20, 30 or 50%.

You’re welcome.

Of course when you come across another site of similar value, please reciprocate and let me know!

This is called creating value within your business model.

With the Internet and blogs, it’s increasingly easier to do, yet very few people do it.

THAT is why as the RECESSION takes hold, YOU WILL HAVE AN ADVANTAGE – if you do it.

Most business people will be so focused on SURVIVING that they won’t be value-adding = an IDEAL OPPORTUNITY for you to LOVE your clients and prospects to death!

To the death of your competitors!

If that excites you and you haven’t yet bought it – you simply must make the $27 investment to purchase my book “Get the Best Business Results With the LEAST Amount of Effort”.

Most Bootcamp attendees who have invested THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS have invested the $27 to make sure they learn the Exponential Learning Strategies BEFORE they step into the Bootcamp.

These strategies are so powerful that they defy ‘logic’ – they will astound you with their elegance, simplicity and EASE.

There are ‘secret’ bonuses included with the book – - -

Back to value creation strategies -

The most exponential thing you can do is create a MasterMind Group – you know I am going to tell you that Bootcamp attendees are going to do this over 3 days…

… so I won’t tell you…

But what you might not know is that we’ve created a SPECIAL BONUS for Bootcamp attendees that you can benefit from even if you don’t attend the Bootcamp!

It’s a never-before-seen offer that will blow your socks off.

Click here to learn how to have FUN creating a Powerful MasterMind Group.

I know that after you’ve read the book and listened to the audio recording you’ll wish you were at the Bootcamp with OVER 100 super-excited entrepreneurs…

But this wasn’t your time – there will be other opportunities in a few months – other events to attend to get into … “the Exponential Mindset™”.

Onward and upward!

Make a QUANTUM leap forward at the Success Secrets Summit in Sydney on the 8/8/8

There is no time like the present to make a change.

If you’re going to make a change, why not make it a Quantum Change?

A Quantum Change is described in detail in Wikipedia if you’re so inclined and are interested in the theoretical foundations of Schrödinger’s equations and the Heisenberg uncertainty principle then knock yourself out and spend the new few hours on Wikipedia…(Yes I know, you’re surprised I know stuff like this – I speed read remember?)

But if you’re NOT a geek or a nerd and you just want the PRACTICAL explanation that relates to YOU and YOUR business, then here it is:

In quantum systems, the conceptual distinction between observables and states persist as separate and distinct. For our PRACTICAL PURPOSES, we’ll call them BEFORE and AFTER states.

Is that SIMPLE and EASY enough for you?

Cool.

Now what does this have to do with you and MORE IMPORTANTLY – what’s in it for you?

I’m getting there… Hold on, be patient!

What do you mean you’re in a rush, don’t have time?!?!?

Well then, you’ll totally get this…

A Quantum Change simply means that in ONE INSTANT you’re one thing, and in the NEXT INSTANT you’re another.

I know… Wow!

That’s friggin’ deep.

How deep? Black hole deep. So deep that even light can’t escape from it.

Yeah I know this is antimimeticisomorphic.

I also know that you will have this Quantum Change when you attend the Success Secrets Summit event in Sydney on the 8th of the 8th month (August) 2008…

I’ll be there, presenting with a full roster of other FANTASTIC speakers selling their best products and services. You’ll be able to cherry-pick from the best, including Dr John DeMartini, Brett McFall, Andrew and Darryl Grant, Rick Otton, Mal Emery, Tim Paulson, Adam Davis, Matt and Amanda Clarkson among several others.

The Quantum Change I expect you to have is going from the “BEFORE STATE” where you’re unsure of what to do to exponentially grow your business to the “AFTER STATE” when you have clarity, focus and resolve to make this happen NOW, INSTANTLY with never-before-felt determination, excitement, enthusiasm and most importantly – SUCCESS.

I could write on and one about what you’ll learn, but I know you’ll be MORE motivated by BONUSES and PRIZES…

YOU COULD WIN Up To $100,000.00 In Cash
And Prizes Including 2 Tickets For A Luxury
Trip To Egypt For 2 Weeks

But you can’t win unless you register and attend the event. Go ahead and book your seat now.

I look forward to seeing you there.

Onward and upward!
Marc

P.S.
Stay tuned for updates on this event in the days to come – the full-blown landing page will be up soon. As soon as it is, I’ll let you know.

As Roberta Faddoul, the event organiser says…

There’s only two places to be on the 08/08/08. In
Beijing at the Olympics watching others go for gold.
Or at the Sydney Summit in The Centrepoint Tower,
at Australia’s First Ever Ultimate 3 Day Success
Secrets Summit, discovering the little known secrets
on how to create your own “pot of gold” from the
world’s leading experts on property, shares, internet
marketing and coaching- where you’ll learn the
psychology of wealth creation despite the tough
economic climate.

Did you know the average Olympian trains for 10,000 hours just to make it onto the field at the Opening Ceremonies?!? 10,000 hours. That’s a LOT of commitment to GET there, then you have to try to beat all the others who have spent JUST AS MANY HOURS (or more) AS YOU…

You can’t win the GOLD MEDAL without an edge, the Quantum State Shift that HAS to happen to WIN…

Come to the Success Secrets Summit to get the edge – the winner’s edge.

2008 Bootcamp And UPW Offer: “Life Will Never Be The Same Again…”

I suggest you get yourself a cup of coffee or tea and get comfortable. Today’s post is going to be a classic.

If you’ve been an Exponential Marketing Enthusiast™ on my database for some time, then you’ve seen the 10, 12, 16 or even 20 page e-mails I’ve sent.

Now that I am blogging, I thought I would do that here instead. There are several reasons to do this, which I’ll explain right after I take care of WHY I am writing to you today.

You know by now that this year is the LAST UPW event that Tony Robbins will hold in Australia. I posted Michael Burnett’s video yesterday and we’ve made it official by announcing it to the ASX.

I won’t repeat what’s already been said or written – You can watch the video below or read the Press Release that explains Press Empowernet Heads into Asia.

What I do want to tell you is that BECAUSE this is the LAST AUSTRALIAN Unleash The Power Within (UPW) Firewalk Experience EVER, I want to make it EXTRA SPECIAL.

I’ve decided to combine the 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp with UPW into a DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY BUNDLE. Simply Put:

You get 2 Tickets for 2 Events for 2 People for $2,997. That’s over $17,000 of value.

Specifically,

You get 2 Tickets to the 3-day Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp in Sydney Monday 18 August to Wednesday 20 August 2008 Valued at $5,997 each PLUS get 2 GOLD Tickets to Anthony Robbins’ 4-day Unleash The Power Within (UPW) Firewalk Experience Seminar Friday 19 September to Monday 22 September 2008 Valued at $1,295 each.

That’s more than $17,000 in value for $2,997.

I’m calling it the DOUBLE, DOUBLE WHAMMY BUNDLE.

Bring a friend or spouse and make Tony’s last LIVE UPW life-changing event a memory of a lifetime.

Exponential Marketing Strategies and Tony’s Peak Performance Neuro-Associative Conditioning Strategies go hand-in-hand.

UPW has been staged in Australia MORE OFTEN than any country other than America and Sydney has held UPW more times than any other city in the WORLD.

Watch these this NEW video to see what the event is like behind-the-scenes BACKSTAGE:

That was then, this is now.

This is the LAST chance to see Tony live at UPW in Australia.

This is why we’ve combined the 3rd Annual Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp with Unleash The Power Within (UPW) for the DOUBLE, DOUBLE WHAMMY – to make it irresistible for you to attend for what will be TWO unique and UNFORGETTABLE events that will transform your business and personal life.

But you have to act now. There are ONLY 300 seats available at the Bootcamp. With the DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY BUNDLE, that means there are ONLY 150 bundles available.

There are already close to 2,000 people booked to attend UPW 2008, many who will now want to ‘upgrade’ to attend the Bootcamp at this incredible price. You do the maths.

If you already purchased your UPW Ticket – call us on 1800 626 204 for your $997/person upgrade ticket to the 2008 Bootcamp NOW.

I am staging PREVIEWS in each of Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane NEXT WEEK.

You can attend or call us on 1800 626 204 to book your DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY BUNDLE right now while they’re available.

WHY I AM COMBINING THESE TWO EVENTS INTO A BUNDLE

In case you don’t already know, way before I joined Empowernet and became its Executive Chairman, I personally attended UPW 5 times. Yes – 5 times, every second year over 10 years. Each time, I took the opportunity to step up to the next level. What I call living a life by design rather than evolving by default.

Did it work for me? You be the judge – I retired, financially independent in 2005 at age 42. Over 24 years, Monica and I have travelled to 36 countries and I have not had a sick day in the past 20 years.

So I admit it, I’m biased.

So biased in fact that I don’t want you to miss out on the LAST chance to see Tony AND learn the EXACT SAME Exponential Marketing Strategies that have made him a household name around the world and gave me financial independence 3 years ago.

I’m so biased that I’ve coordinated this offer with The Tony Robbins team to make it an ‘absolute no-brainer’ that you simply can’t refuse.

If you’ve been saying to yourself “I’ll go next year” – THERE IS NO NEXT YEAR.

There is no second chance. TONY is not coming back to Sydney to do UPW again – ever.

This is your ONLY chance to see him in Sydney…

But let me get back to my bias, because it’s important for you to know where I’m coming from. If you don’t know my personal story, SPEED READ my personal profile in 2 minutes. Yes that’s right – SPEED READ it right here, right now.

This is ONE of MANY examples of what I learned from Tony’s strategies – which I will get to a little later…

Let me get back to my story and why it’s important TO YOU, RIGHT NOW to attend the 2008 Bootcamp and UPW in Sydney THIS YEAR.

As the founder of my own start-up company, I used Exponential Marketing strategies, with no money down, to build one of my service companies 3 times faster, with double the industry average sales per employee, with a fraction of the industry’s employee attrition rate while consistently producing twice the profitability of his competitors.

But what you may not know is HOW I achieved that feat.

The ONLY reason I was able to get THOSE kinds of results was because every single long-term employee I had was a firewalker. I didn’t wait for Tony to come to Canada – I sent my staff wherever Tony was – Belgium, Washington D.C., Hawaii, California. My staff paid for the trip and I paid for the seminar – a 50/50 investment in THEIR future.

I need to repeat this. I was committed to achieving outstanding results and the FIRST THING I did was build a team around me that LEARNED these KEY SUCCESS STRATEGIES. I have to say it again – I sent every single one of my staff – more than 10 people in total over several years to UPW events. It was not a ‘bonus’, but a REQUIREMENT – NOT an option.

I hear it all the time…

“I’m working too much.”
“I don’t have time to do it all…”
“I don’t get to see my kids until they’re in bed – asleep.”

I get it.

What I don’t get is why you wouldn’t SCALE with additional help/assistance to help you achieve your goals?!?!

Why not INVEST in that person who can liberate you once and for all from the shackles of the entrepreneurial jail?

Trying to do this on YOUR OWN is tantamount to failure.

I NEVER did it on my own.

I NEVER said I did.

I was the ARCHITECT, the MASTERMIND Craftsman, but NEVER said I did it all – in fact it’s the reason I have not had a sick day in the last 20 years, Monica and I have traveled to 36 countries, I still fit into the SAME SIZE SUIT I wore more than 20 years ago in my 20’s, I play squash EVERY DAY I am in Sydney and oh yeah – I accumulated 5 university degrees in my spare time.

It’s really quite simple really.

If you do what I did. Tony calls it “modeling the masters” and “success leaves clues”.

I’ve always said that Tony Robbins made me the best I can be. Brian Tracy turned me into the best sales person and manager I can be. Jay Abraham helped me become the best marketing person I can be and his strategies led to my financial independence at age 42 – 18 years ahead of my childhood dream.

But y’know what? My bias doesn’t stop there.

I also invited friends and family to attend UPW and Tony’s other LIVE events – BECAUSE I wanted a social support group that would HELP, SUPPORT and ENCOURAGE me to become a better person and achieve MY GOALS.

Dr Napoleon Hill calls it having a MasterMind Group. I should know something about it since I wrote the book on MasterMind Groups!

What you probably don’t know is what happened to these friends that attended Tony’s events and were influenced by his amazing strategies…

One friend was working for a government agency making $60,000/year which was pretty good at the time. Within 12 months he was making over $100,000 and within 3 years, $200,000+. That’s 4 times more. But that’s not the entire story. His arthritic hip problems subsided AND he invested his additional new income to become financially independent within the next 10 years, buying a brand new sports car and moving into a house TWICE the size.

Another friend tripled his income from $50,000 to $150,000 in one year which on its own is impressive, but more importantly he ended up buying the business he worked in as a contractor and in the last 6 years, EVERY SINGLE competitor except one has gone bust, bankrupt, out of business or shut down. He never would have survived were it not for Tony’s Peak Performance strategies and Exponential Marketing strategies.

A third friend was a student, single, struggling, making $8,000/year as a part-time temp employee, taking 1 course/semester (Getting Cs and Bs) and struggling to make the rent each month. Within a year, she tripled her income to $25,000, lost 10 Kgs, got into a serious relationship and TRIPLED the number of courses she took AND started to get As and Bs! Within the NEXT year, she was making $60,000+ completing her degree in half the time based on my book “Get The Best Grades With The Least Amount Of Effort“. Strategies that I perfected into a system that is now an eBook. Strategies based on Tony’s Peak Performance Neuro-Associative Conditioning Principles that WORK.

I could tell you dozens of other stories, but I think you get the idea.

The point I want to hammer home though is that I did that as a ‘private citizen’ NOT AS A PUBLIC SPEAKER.

I did this to IMPROVE MY OWN RESULTS.

My RESULTS speak for themselves and I don’t say that to boast, but to make it crystal clear that I have a 100% bias – this stuff changed my life.

So much so that people thought I joined a cult – you’ve heard the cynics call it that.

The cynics who are mortgaged to the hilt and are frustrated and worried that the petrol price has gone up 10 or 20 cents/litre. The naysayers who are still working as employees or WORSE are cash-strapped ‘entrepreneurs’ making LESS than they would as employees.

They can think what they want – I don’t care.

Well that’s not true. I wish they would ‘get it’ soon – there are less than 2 months, then it’s too late.

Anthony Robbins will never have another UPW Firewalk event in Australia ever again… If they ‘wake up’ in 3 or 4 months – they’ll have to travel to attend a UPW event – travel overseas… If they don’t come to an Australian event, the chances are slim they’ll travel overseas.

Oh yeah, another thing I wanted to say before I get to the 2008 Bootcamp…

In 1993, I attend my first UPW in Montreal Canada. It was the FIRST, ONLY and LAST time Tony had a UPW in my home town. BECAUSE of the French language issues, I knew then I had to ‘step up’ and go. I knew Tony wouldn’t be back in Montreal any time soon.

At UPW, I didn’t sign up for Mastery University – choosing (wrongly) to try to implement these amazing strategies on my own…

I waited a few years until 1996.

Why 1996? Because that’s when I found out who was behind Tony’s amazing success – the legendary Jay Abraham… It was then that I realised two CRITICALLY IMPORTANT THINGS:


(1) I couldn’t do it on my own as fast or as easily – why re-invent the wheel when others have “been there, done that” charting the QUICKEST, FASTEST and EASIEST path?!?!?

(2) Tony was not going to keep doing what he was doing forever… If I didn’t do Mastery University NOW, I would forever lose that opportunity…

So Monica and I signed up to Anthony Robbins’ Mastery University at WHOPPING COST of more than $40,000 including travel, foreign exchange, tuition and accommodation.

FOURTY THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!

Now my cynical friends AND FAMILY thought I had FINALLY gone over the edge.

But I KNEW something NO ONE else knew.

This was going to be one of the last Mastery University events that TONY would do from start to finish. I spent 6 days at Financial Mastery in Maui, Hawaii with Tony leading the best FINANCIAL EXPERTS in the world that mentored, guided and taught me what I need to create the $40,000 I had just invested in Mastery University within 3 months BEFORE Monica and I attended Life Mastery in Kona, Hawaii.

Yes you read correctly – I completely paid for Mastery University in-between the Financial and Life Mastery events – May to September…

This stuff friggin’ works!

Life Mastery in Kona Hawaii was 9 days of full-on 14 to 16 hours/day with Tony on Stage… A friggin’ marathon… NEVER EVER to be repeated. I treasure that ‘week’ Monica and I spent re-designing our lives. BECAUSE we now live our DREAM DESTINY. We live in Australia BECAUSE that’s what we decided at the last most meaningful event of the Mastery University curriculum – Date With Destiny in Palm Springs, California.

“My mission in life is to continue to live my dream and empower others to do the same.”

Less than 10 years after Mastery University, I retired from the ‘rat race’, launched Jay Abraham Asia Pacific and became Executive Chairman of Empowernet International – the exclusive agent for Anthony Robbins in Asia Pacific.

Wow. Even writing that to you today humbles me.

This has been and continues to be an honour, privilege and responsibility that I take to heart every single day.

So what’s the point of all this?

When friends, family and colleagues get exposed to Tony Strategies, I can’t offer them Mastery University as I experienced it
Soon, the same will the case with UPW in Australia.

This is it – YOU HAVE TO COME TO UPW in Sydney THIS September.

You can’t afford to miss it.

EVEN if that means you borrow from your parents, brother/sister, uncle/aunt, grandmother/grandfather or EVEN TAKE OUT A LOAN. If you take out a loan, chances are it will be an allowable tax deduction. You might even be able to salary sacrifice it…

Click here to find out HOW you can declare this as a PERSONAL educational expense.

Click here to find out HOW to salary sacrifice this so you don’t miss out on this LAST chance to attend UPW in Australia.

So this is a great segway into Exponential Marketing Strategies and why I am combining the 2008 Bootcamp with UPW…

Without getting into what our Internet and Business Mastery Platinum and Diamond Programs are specifically – the ONE thing you should know is that for these $49,995/year programs, we have ONE CONDITION to GUARANTEE the results of DOUBLE or TRIPLE RETURNS ON INVESTMENT.

Every single Platinum and Diamond Member MUST attend UPW.

We know that UNLESS they learn Tony’s Personal Peak Performance strategies, their personal blockages will PREVENT them from achieving extra-ordinary goals, outcomes and results.

Let me say that differently – When you apply Exponential Marketing strategies, you’re #1 problem will be GROWING TOO QUICKLY and you MIGHT start to self-sabotage.

Disempowering beliefs are THAT powerful. Tony covers this on day three of UPW.

They are like having your foot on the accelerator AND the brake AT THE SAME TIME.

Sound familiar?

That’s why the DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY is a MUST and WHY I have made it IRRESISTIBLE.

When next year rolls around – I don’t want anyone to say – “If only I knew” or “if only I could have afforded it”…

That’s why the price/combination has been set at the LOWEST, EASIEST entry point possible.

2 tickets, 2 people, 2 events, $2,997.

I can’t believe how incredible value this is PLUS it’s the LAST TIME you get to see Tony LIVE at UPW in Sydney.

So how does the 2008 Bootcamp figure into all this?

Glad you asked.

In June 1996, I travelled from Montreal, Canada to Los Angeles, California for Jay Abraham’s Ex! Factor Bootcamp. The reason I invested the $5,000 tuition PLUS $5,000 in travel and accommodation costs for a 3-day weekend Bootcamp event was because I was nuts, psychotic and delusional – NOT!

BUT many of my friends thought that. I mean c’mon $10,000 for a 3-day weekend Bootcamp?!?!

Of course these friends are still mortgaged to their eyeballs, still employees in ‘middle management’, driving 10+ year old cars, taking a maximum of one maybe two weeks vacation per year (if at all), working 50 to 60 hours/week, are 10 to 20 kilos heavier than they were ‘back then’, half are on their second marriage or divorced and not anywhere close to retirement or financial independence… A few have had preventable health challenges due to stress, lack of exercise…

That’s not a value judgment – it is what it is.

They had the SAME choices I had back then.

I decided to invest in myself and then didn’t.

It’s that simple.

I was NOT smarter than they were. I was not more capable. I was not more hard working. I was not more well connected. I was not wealthier (then).

I was however more OPEN to the possibility of what Deepak Chopra (another one of Tony Robbins’ allies) calls “boundless possibility thinking”. Learnt to…


“Release myself from the expectation of the outcome so I can tap into a discontinuity gap in the universe to instantly synchronise with a non-local correlation that will trigger a quantum leap of creativity and innovation to help me manifest infinite knowledge and boundless possibilities enabling a conspiracy of improbabilities that will create my ultimate destiny.”

That’s what you need – an open mind.

Your mind has to be open – how else can you be reading a blog post this long?

11, 12 or maybe 13 people unsubscribed to the e-mail I sent directing people to this blog post. They can’t ‘get it’ because they were never open to the possibility – does that make sense (cents) to you?

Or should I say does that make dollars to you? (Thanks Stuart – I told you I would use it and acknowledge you!)

$10,000 for a 3-day weekend Bootcamp – THE BEST INVESTMENT I EVER MADE.

As you know, I have 5 University degrees – one of them is an MBA. What you probably don’t know is that I would give up that MBA for the 3-day Bootcamp in a heartbeat. An MBA was valuable, but it thought me all the things that could go wrong as well as the theoretical complexities of business, management, strategy, sales, accounting and finance – NOT ONE MBA COURSE TAUGHT ME HOW TO SUCCEED OR MAKE MORE MONEY.

The Bootcamp, was filled with 36 hours of MONEY-MAKING STRATEGIES that totally worked in synch with Tony Robbin’s Personal Peak Performance Mastery Strategies for the DOUBLE WHAMMY compounding effect, where 1+1 = 10.

With an open mind, I want to take you into the 2008 Exponential Internet and Business Building Bootcamp.

First, its’ Exponential.

I know that’s a big word, but not as big as antimimeticisomorphism now THAT’S a mouthful!

Exponential and antimimeticisomorphism means to do things that are out-of-the-ordinary to get extra-ordinary results.

Out-of-the-ordinary means writing a 10, or even 20-page blog post like this one.

It means COMBINING TWO EVENTS TOGETHER and SLASHING THE PRICE to a never-before-seen level.

It means staging 3-hour preview events in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane to explain what I think is a no-brainer…

Click here to reserve your seat at the next preview in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

If you have any doubts, don’t just put this aside – you won’t come back to it. No one ever does.

There are TWO kinds of people – Moving Towards and Moving Aways From People.

Tony explains this on Day Two of UPW…

Start right now to make the change YOU KNOW you want to make and register for the preview RIGHT NOW.

Don’t put it off and don’t just register and not show up – that doesn’t work either.

In fact, you may not know this, but for FREE preview events, HALF the people who REGISTER don’t show up.

What does that tell you?

It means that JUST BY SHOWING up – you end up BEING ABOVE AVERAGE.

I mean c’mon let me be serious for a second and get STRAIGHT TO THE POINT.

What else can you do at home watching TV or surfing the net that could be more valuable than learning strategies from a self-made millionaire who’s RIGHT WHERE YOU WANT TO BE. Who has taught HUNDREDS of people to replicate amazing RESULTS over and over again!?!?

Click here NOW to reserve your seat at the next preview in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane.

If you can’t physically make the previews and have already decided to attend the 2008 Bootcamp and UPW, please call us now to reserve your DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY BUNDLE on 1800 626 204.

If you have any doubts, then come to the 3-hour preview in your city. It’s the LAST CHANCE this kind of offer will be made.

2 tickets for 2 people to attend the Bootcamp for $2,997 is incredible.

For TWO of you to also attend UPW is, well, irresistible.

As you may know, I used a home study program to ‘prepare’ for my first Bootcamp and in the 12 to 14 weeks PRIOR to the Bootcamp, I tracked that I made over $50,000 in ADDITIONAL NEW SALES as a DIRECT RESULT of the strategies I learnt.

That’s BEFORE I even attended the Bootcamp…

I want you to have the SAME result which is why I have prepared a specially designed a Pre Program Preparation™ for you BEFORE the Bootcamp, in-between the Bootcamp and UPW and AFTER UPW to hand-hold you through the process step-by-step so you get the MAXIMUM RESULT from attending BOTH events.

I know what’s required because I’ve been to UPW 5 times and attended 3 Bootcamps as well as staged 3 Bootcamps with the legendary Marketing Genius Jay Abraham.

This is YOUR YEAR.

Things happen for a reason – you KNOW this year is it. There are no more excuses.

I have taken all the obstacles out of your way – the price is incredible. The combination is well, a DOUBLE WHAMMY. You’re going to do this with someone who will help you so your are NOT on your own…

All I need to do now is make sure you fully grasp the incredible value that the Bootcamp holds for you.

To do that, I need you to download the PDF of the 2008 Bootcamp by clicking here.

With that in hand, you’ll see there are few NEW components.

First, the format has been expanded to be 3 FULL DAYS that last 12 HOURS/DAY.

I will go on record and say that I AM NOT PLANNING ON EVER OFFERING a 12 HOUR/DAY 3-DAY BOOTCAMP FORMAT EVER AGAIN.

When I attended UPW in Montreal in 1993, Tony had a classic saying “Just one more thing…” That just one more thing would take us to 2, 3 and even 4 AM in the morning… Yes 3 and even 4 in the morning. Of course you’d think we’d start later the next day… NO friggin’ way!

Tony was full-on, non-stop, hold nothing back. The venues tolerated it for a few years and then stopped it – NOT because Tony didn’t want to keep going, but because the venue staff wanted to go home – you can’t really blame them.

What’s the point?!?!

THAT full-on 16+ hours/day event was magical, life-changing and priceless.

I want to make THIS edition, the 2008 Edition of the Bootcamp the SAME.

PRICELESS and TOTALLY AMAZING.

With the extra time we’ve allocated with the venue’s full cooperation, we will go from 9 AM to 9 PM for three days straight.

We are going to have Exponential MasterMind Workshops – not just discussions, but full-on MasterMind Workshops DURING the event so you can apply what you learnt BEFORE you got in the room and the distinctions you picked up DURING the Bootcamp.

There I go again with another BIG word – Distinctions. Click here to read what distinctions are all about in DETAIL.

In brief, they are what Tony calls the ’2mm’ that makes all the difference – the headline that converts 243% more people from tyre kickers into paying clients, the ONE thing that turns a loss into a profit. The ONE thought you can have that puts $6,000 in your bank account in 6 days or the $300 that turns into $17,000 of cash in 60 days.

To make this year’s Bootcamp special and even more Exponential, I decided to add an Exponential HotSeat™. If you don’t know what a hot seat is click here to download “Exponential HotSeats™ Explained“.

In short, I will take ONE person’s company, take it apart and re-build it using Exponential Marketing and Peak Performance Strategies – LIVE ON STAGE. I have never done this outside the $49,995 Internet and Business Mastery Platinum Program.

A HotSeat is THAT powerful and will be one of the HIGHLIGHTS of the Bootcamp.

A full-blown HotSeat has NEVER been done at an Australian Bootcamp.

But that’s not all. In this 2008 Edition of the Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp, we will also expand the Rapid Fire Q&A Sessions which means you and your fellow participants will go to the microphones and ask ANY QUESTION YOU HAVE on YOUR business and it will be SOLVED right then and there.

This has been done in the past, but we’re going to do it 3 times/day to make sure you GET COUNTLESS distinctions, ideas and insights.

When I attended my first two Bootcamps, I took 125 and 116 pages of notes.

Don’t believe me? Click here to download the list of my Bootcamp Distinctions.

125 and 116 pages – is that insane or what?!?!

Yes it is – INSANE PROFITS – to the tune of $2.5 MILLION DOLLARS of additional NEW INCOME that I translate to more than $100,000/year for me personally – a whopping $1,000,000 from a 3-day weekend.

Does that excite you?

It STILL excites me to tell you – I just looked at the file and I have to admit EVERY TIME I read it, I get goose bumps.

I want you to have the same goose bumps.

That feeling of utter joy, happiness and contentment about an outstanding result.

But you know what?

AND I know how this is going to sound, but I am going to say it anyway…

The PROCESS and JOURNEY is what makes it so special.

I had fun walking on fire – all 10+ times I’ve done it. I lost my voice EVERY single time I attended UPW. I learnt exciting, fun and new stuff every time I attended a Marketing Bootcamp. I met incredible people from all around the country and the world – people who are STILL in my personal MasterMind Group. People who helped and CONTINUE to help me achieve incredible results EVEN TODAY.

I know stuff most people will never know – NOT because I’m smart, but because I have strategies that WORK.

I learnt from the best in the world.

Anthony Robbins
Jay Abraham
Jay Conrad Levinson of Guerrilla Marketing
Brian Tracy
Deepak Chopra
Dennis Waitley
Dr John Gray of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus
Dr Robert Cialdini
Peter Drucker
Tom Peters
Robert Kiyosaki Rich Dad, Poor Dad
Dr Thomas J. Stanley
and many others

Reading over 300 personal development books, watching videos and listening to audio programs…

But this is not about me – it’s about what this means for YOU.

I have a LOT of information, strategies and distinctions I want to share with you, at the 2008 Exponential Internet and Business Building Bootcamp.

I want you to be there. I need you to be there.

This year’s Bootcamp is going to be special – for all the reasons I’ve already told you.

Something you might now have thought about is that the room will be filled with FIREWALKERS or FIREWALKERS to be… Can you imagine what that’s going to be like?!?

Friggin’ amazing… There go the goose bumps again.

So, before I sign off today’s post, I have one more set of reasons you MUST attend the 2008 Bootcamp.

The Internet.

It’s been called the easiest thing that’s hard to do.

It’s the MISSING LINK for most people who want to get the business going and growing online.

Less than 10% of people/businesses make money on the Internet.

3 years ago, when I launched Jay Abraham Asia Pacific, all we had was ‘brochureware’ – now called a splash page. It was static and had at most 5, maybe 10 pages of text.

That was then, this is now.

We turned that into a $1,000,000+ revenue stream that now consists of more than 40 products, memberships and events specifically designed to help you get a quick start on the fast track to building your business online and offline.

Products and services include:

Killer Kopywriting System
Virtual Real Estate and Flipping Websites For Profit
Internet and Business Memberships starting at $97/month

With more than 200 pages of content, it is one of the most extensive sites on the Internet for business building strategies in the world.

All created in the last 12 months.

We’ve increased our FREE organic traffic 10-fold, our sales have DOUBLED and our database size has QUADRUPLED. Without any increase in staff or human resources – EXPONENTIAL LEVERAGE ON STEROIDS.

If Exponential Marketing Strategies are steroids for your business, Exponential INTERNET Marketing Strategies are PURE PROFIT ADRENALINE for your steroids!

At the 2008 Bootcamp, I will explain how YOU can achieve similar and even better results.

For example, I’ll explain:

Why I chose to post this on my blog instead of just sending an e-mail… (Hint: It gets indexed by Google)

How you can get FREE traffic to your site AUTOMATICALLY and with MINIMAL effort. Imagine having NOT just HUNDREDS, but THOUSANDS of links pointing to your products and services…

The 5 things you can do to your YouTube videos to create VIRAL TRAFFIC that TRIPLES the views AUTOMATICALLY and SYSTEMATICALLY. Then the 1 thing 99% of YouTube submitters don’t know that you MUST do to convert those VIEWS into SALES.

The 3 things you have to do to ensure you convert tyre kicking visitors into paying clients on your landing pages. (Of course why you need to STOP sending people to your website to INCREASE SALES 300%, 400% or even 500% – Yes, you read that correctly. STOP sending them to you website!)

The 2 things you MUST avoid at all costs to STOP flushing your hard earned money down the drain when advertising on the Internet -ESPECIALLY using Google Adwords.

The COMPOUNDING effect of the 1 percent I keep talking about that produces a 3,778% result in 12 months – how the Internet is the easiest and fastest way to leverage this phenomenon. If you’re not sure what I’m talking about, watch my view my YouTube video that explains how a 1 percent improvement can turn your online sales channel into an auto-pilot cash cow.

There are AT LEAST 10, maybe even 20 Exponential Internet Marketing Strategies I’ve used in this BLOG POST alone. All which YOU could be using to create the same level of success we have created and our Internet Mastery Platinum Program Members are using on a DAILY BASIS.

This is the FIRST TIME EVER that BOTH Business and Internet EXPONENTIAL MARKETING strategies are COMBINED into ONE Bootcamp Event.

Sure there are lots of sales-oriented events that take place – I am presenting at one the weekend of August 8th staged by Quantum Change -called the Success Secrets Summit, but those events are all about providing you with access to products and solutions.

I’d love to see you there. I speak twice for a total of 2 hours – just like the other 10+ speakers.

How much CONTENT can we cover in that time? You guessed it – NOT MUCH. The point of that event is DIFFERENT to the Bootcamp. It has its place – where else are you going to find and assess which products you want to buy to help you achieve the results you want?

The Bootcamp is a FULL 36 HOURS of CONTENT with NO SALES PITCH.

3 full days of workshops, Rapid Fire Q&A Sessions and presentations on the BEST EXPONENTIAL MARKETING STRATEGIES for the Internet and Business all wrapped up into one event that will have your head spinning at the end of the day.

Your head spinning with ideas that are disarmingly simple, easy and effective. You know several of them just from reading this BLOG and the Internet Mastery Blog.

This is the ONLY event that combines BOTH Internet and Business Marketing WITHOUT the sales pitches.

Even our most advanced Platinum and Diamond Programs don’t mix the two streams which is why we have TWO separate $49,995 programs, one for the Internet and one for bricks and mortar businesses.

To use one of Tony’s classic phrases… “One last thing…”

Our Internet Mastery Diamond Program is so exclusive that without a DIRECT LINK to it, you can’t find the page – that’s because we’ve limited access to the most committed of all the Exponential Marketing Enthusiasts.

The Internet Mastery Diamond Program has the following value proposition:

“Imagine learning within the next 12 months how to create a $100,000 Passive Income Portfolio that pays you 24/7/365 for FREE.”

How can we possibly offer that FOR FREE?

The Internet Mastery Diamond Program is the ULTIMATE exponential INTERNET case study.

At the 2008 Bootcamp Previews I will touch on how we’re able to do this for Yvonne who is building an Internet asset that is already making over $3,300/month as she learns how to increase it to $8,500/month = $100,000/year of passive income. Passive income that will take no more than 10 hours/month to maintain…

At the previews I will also explain how we are currently paying people $100/hour Flipping Websites For Profit.

Yes, you read that correctly – we’re paying people $100/hour to LEARN how to flip websites for profit. More than 3 websites/day are being flipped producing $600 of cash for ‘flippers’ every day…

Are you making that kind of money on the Internet?

I want to say this again – we are PAYING PEOPLE $100/HOUR TO LEARN to create a passive income stream of $1,000/month that eventually will become a passive income stream of $100,000/year…

Diamond Members “Buy” that income stream for “FREE”, but others are PAID $100/hour.

How the #$@%#$ can that be?!?!?

That’s the Exponential Mindset™ in action.

This is what I am going to INTRODUCE to you at the PREVIEWS and TEACH you at the Bootcamp.

I know it’s out-of-the-ordinary.

I know it’s antimimeticisomorphic.

I know it’s exciting.

AND IT GETS BETTER.

For Business Mastery Diamond Members, the value proposition is equal mind-blowing:

“What would you pay for a continuous and never-ending stream of qualified prospects coming to your website or showing up on your doorstep, with credit card in hand WANTING to buy from you?”

Read that again…

A never-ending stream of QUALIFIED prospects…

How about if it was ‘FREE’?!?

I know you’re intrigued.

That’s why you MUST come to the 2008 Exponential Internet & Business Building Bootcamp.

Click here to register for the PREVIEW now or call us on 1800 626 204.

I look forward to seeing you next week.

Onward and upward!
Marc

P.S.
As you know by now, there is always a postscript. What Wikipedia doesn’t explain is the MARKETING VALUE a postcript has… We’ll cover that… You guessed it at the Bootcamp!

I just wanted to explain one more reason WHY the 2008 Bootcamp event is special and not to be missed.

You already know this is the LAST UPW that Tony Robbins will stage in Australia. You also already know that Tony has used the EXACT SAME Exponential Marketing Strategies covered in the Bootcamp to become a household name, one of the most recognisable people in the world as well as one of the top 50 most influential (according to Accenture).

I don’t have to tell you what he’s done for World Champion athletes like Andre Agassi and the Williams Sisters – their results speak for themselves…

But how can I sit here and PROMISE you that you can achieve equally stellar results?

It’s simple.

I know that if I get you to focus on what you don’t know you know, I don’t have to teach you want you already know. Once you realise you now know it, then it becomes what you know you know and we just have to do that over and over again.

Confused? Don’t be watch my video below “How to improve your results INSTANTLY” YouTube video now.

This is WHY I CAN HELP YOU CREATE ANY RESULT YOU WANT…

BUT.

There’s always a but. But I can’t do that unless I have time with you AND leverage Tony’s incredible UPW event.

That’s right – I can’t do it on my own.

There are 3 of us involved.

Me, Tony and You.

Tony and I will be there, the question is will you?

When would NOW be a good time to register or call us?

I hate to do this, but that’s it for today. I’ve had a great time writing to you as I trust you’ve enjoyed it. Imagine 3 days with me and another 4 days with the ONE AND ONLY Tony Robbins. His last ‘encore performance’ in Australia…

Actually, there won’t be just the 3 of us, you’ll have more than 200 other like-minded Internet and Business Exponential Marketing Enthusiasts at the Bootcamp and more than 3,000 at UPW to create an atmosphere you will never forget.

An atmosphere people will talk about for years. An experience that words will never be able to describe. A weekend you will cherish for a lifetime. As I cherish my 20 FULL DAYS of Mastery University with Tony in Hawaii and California. 20 Days – WOW.

Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime event.

Tony Robbins may not be the Beatles, but can you imagine someone who did not go and see the Beatles when they touring thinking “I’ll go next time?”

Don’t have the regret – do whatever it take to be at the 2008 Bootcamp and 2008 UPW this year.

There will NEVER be another set of events like this EVER.

Thanks for listening and I look forward to seeing you in Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane next week.
