Japanese Earthquake Radiation: Lessons We Can Learn

Earlier this week, I blogged about how Vaseline and radioactivity are related to make a point – well actually, to illustrate how William Tucker has been able to reduce the fear mongering propaganda of the mass media to simple, easy-to-understand metaphors and analogies that any 5th grader can understand.

Mt Tucker recently added another article to his on-going explanation regarding Infant formula made from Tokyo tap water.

His brilliance is simplifying the otherwise complex into something easy for the layperson to grasp.

One of the key strategies that I will be teaching our elite VIP and Platinum Members this weekend is how to do this systematically.

How to leverage tools like the one below that Mr Tucker shared with us in one of his recent articles.

Every business has hidden assets like this – the key is to know how to use them effectively within an automated approach.

We’ll miss you this weekend.

Fart Proof Your Dog

Fart-Speech-BubbleDid you know you can fart proof your dog? If you’ve ever had a dog with flatulence, you know how valuable this can be.

The Internet Marketing Lesson is that I explained how to leverage this fact to two clients: One leveraged it and the other didn’t.

Which one do you think has doubled sales and tripled profits?

Enough said.

The point is that you have to capture people’s attention – especially on the Internet where people’s attention is measured in seconds.

The proof is in the pudding – I bet you you can’t bear NOT knowing how you can fart proof your dog – EVEN IF YOU DON’T HAVE A DOG!

This is how powerful Killer Kopywriting™ can be. The difference between struggling to get people to your website and having an avalanche of qualified prospects…

Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp Day 2 Of 3

As I mentioned yesterday, we’re at the Marriott Hotel, staging the last of the Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamps – ever. We’re not opening it up to the general public anymore, we’re going to keep the content for our most privileged clients – our Platinum Program Members… That being said, there is one concept that you can gain instant access to, it’s called Virtual Real Estate and as I’ve mentioned previously on several occasions, the program will be re-branded, re-formatted and the price substantially increased. At this price, it’s an absolute bargain because it introduces you to the concept that we’re leveraging for brick and mortar businesses every day. Plumbers, dentists, engineers, doggy day care centres, consultants, you name it.

Social Media Marketing is a time consuming waste of time – UNLESS you know what you’re doing and how to do it properly.

This is a program that can save you in excess of 200 hours of searching plus a lot of the information in the bonuses you simply would never find on your own.

Go ahead and click here on the hyperlink here – to find out about Virtual Real Estate.

At the Bootcamp, I am spending 3 hours explaining this concept in detail – not for people to actually Flip Websites For Profit, but to leverage the business model to create an endless stream of qualified prospects walking into their stores or businesses that become paying clients.

Imagine having a lead generation system that is free. That’s right, new leads that don’t cost you a cent.

That’s what Bootcamp attendees are learning about this weekend – you’re not there, so the next best thing you can do is get the online video program and try to get as much from it as you can. Otherwise you’re wasting a lot time and effort for… nothing.

There is a better way, an exponential way of doing things.

Some 1% improvement is NOT worth doing

As a business coach to entrepreneurs and business people who want to increase sales and expand their businesses, I advocate the 1 Percent Improvement Doctrine. It’s a concept that is covered on Day 3 of my Bootcamp events when we cover the concepts of Pathways To Profits™ and determining your Next Best Step™. With Internet strategies there are so many things to do, the most important question is “what should I focus on?”

That is the “million dollar question”.

At my upcoming Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp, I will, for the last time, reveal how to do this for non-Platinum Program Members. The process takes a few hours to learn, but once mastered, you will always do the right thing, at the right time for the right reason/outcome.

It’s a simple, easy-to-learn methodology that I’ve developed to re-create success for over 2,000 businesses across 200 industries over the past 20 years. In fact, the strategies are so effective that I now GUARANTEE RESULTS when you attend the Bootcamp as a VIP Ticket holder.

As a business coach I don’t just reveal strategies, techniques and tactics that work, I advise and mentor my clients to learn to do it themselves. That is why I am The Exponential Growth Strategist and not “just a business coach“.

The saying “teach a man how to fish and he’ll feed himself for a lifetime” is true with business coaching, but most coaches don’t have the competency to teach, they consult and create a dependency with their clients to ensure they need them so their personal income is “secured”. I don’t do that. I make sure I teach people how to think exponentially leveraging a MasterMind Group of the most ambitious entrepreneurs around.

Why is this important? Because success on the Internet is about doing what works. Finding that out is a process. If you want to know how my clients do it, contact us and we’ll reveal the secrets to you, but you should know that this upcoming Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp is the last one I’m doing. That means in 2011, you’ll have to be a Platinum Program Member to learn these strategies.

I’m going ‘upmarket’ with my most valuable information and strategies. I will still have introductory seminars and workshops, but the most powerful will be reserved exclusively for those willing to pay for it. Their reward will be that I GUARANTEE RESULTS. I would think you’d agree that’s not just fair, that makes good business sense.

That’s the whole point, it’s win-win.. Ka-Ching!

A shocking new fact about Google

Google Page 2 ‘Almost’ As Good As Page 1? Google recently reported that 38 to 45% of people searching on Google immediately click to page 2 because too many people are manipulating keywords to be on Page 1. That means you now need to be both on Page 1 and Page 2…

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

As a business coach, advisor and mentor, I teach my clients little known facts like these to make sure they are always one step ahead of the competition. There’s a joke that explains this metaphorically:

There are two guys in the forest and they come across a bear. One says to the other “Oh SH_ _! We have to out-run the bear!” when the other says “No mate, all I have to do is out-run you!”

That’s the reality of Google rankings. If you want to make sure you’re always one step ahead of your competition, contact us. Most of our programs now come with a RESULTS-BASED GUARANTEE.

That says it all don’t you think?

Google Caffeine

With Google Caffeine, Google now analyzes the web in small portions and updates its search index on a continuous basis, globally. As they find new pages, or new information on existing pages, they can now add these straight to the index. That means you can find fresher information than ever before—no matter when or where it was published.

Google Caffeine

Google Caffeine

Google Caffeine allows the indexing of web pages on an enormous scale. In fact, every second Google Caffeine processes hundreds of thousands of pages in parallel. If this were a pile of paper it would grow three miles taller every second. Google Caffeine takes up nearly 100 million gigabytes of storage in one database and adds new information at a rate of hundreds of thousands of gigabytes per day. You would need 625,000 of the largest iPods to store that much information; if these were stacked end-to-end they would go for more than 40 miles.

That’s what happens when you drink too much caffeine – you get hyper!

Business Bootcamp Graduate Leverages Internet Strategies

On the last night of every Exponential Business Building Bootcamp there is a session on Internet Strategies where participants can ask any question to increase their online traffic, sales and/or conversions. The Internet Marketing Strategies we teach are proven and tested for real brick and mortar businesses – not the spam like ‘link building’ and other affiliate marketing strategies associated with get rich quick schemes.

This November, in Melbourne, we’re staging the last Exponential Internet Marketing Bootcamp. We’re not abandoning Internet Marketing Strategies, we’re just going to restrict access to our Platinum Program Members. As I’ve mentioned before, there are too many Internet Marketing Spruikers out there selling empty dreams at multi-speaker salesfest events. We don’t want to be associated with that genre. We’re focused on producing GUARANTEED RESULTS for our clients.

Today’s post is an example from Ray Keefe of Successful Endeavours. At this year’s Exponential Business Building Bootcamp, I explained how to blog to optimise Search Engine Optimisation for new lead generation as well as improving your Google Keyword Ranking. Ray, as a multi-award winner, knows that you need to take action to create results.

His latest blog post, called Squash Lessons For Engineering is an ideal example of how to do it. It’s a derivative of my Squash Lessons For Marketing and another case study in how to grow your business exponentially leveraging my 1 Percent Improvement Doctrine. Too many people chase the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when all the success, wealth, health and happiness is right there, within their reach – if only they knew what to do and how to do it… That’s why you should seriously consider attending one of our events – our programs now include a RESULTS BASED GUARANTEE.

Google Searches Are Getting Longer

Ray Keefe of Successful Endeavours came across new data that shows Google searches are getting longer and more specific. Attached are a few pointers on how you can adapt.

The data reveals that the percentage of clicks based on search term length is changing. Clicks made through searches over eight words grew by 8.3%, with searches over seven words growing by 5.3%.

In contrast, clicks made through searches using one word fell by 1.1%, with clicks made by searches over two words falling by 1.5%. Searches using three words remained flat.

The data isn’t surprising as the growth of the Internet as a business tool results in more users searching for more specific data, such as brands and product names.

Google reports that 20% of searches are absolutely brand new, meaning they have never been typed into the search engine before. Users are having to think about being more specific to get through jargon and get to what they really want.

This is important for you, as you must think about what keywords you can use in order to show up in as many searches as possible when your target market is looking to acquire your product or service.

One of the biggest trends ignored by small businesses is search-by-location. You must start to use keywords relating to your  location, as users are more and more searching for specific brands and products by suburb.

Not enough small businesses think about ranking for their suburb name, which is an extremely easy thing to rank for and people will use it in very specific searches. This is necessary even though Google is getting better with that sort of thing, with both maps as well as business listings.

At eight words, which is pretty high, think about the things people would be searching for and the combinations they would prefer…

That means you must consider what you think users will be searching for and that means not just what you think should be an appropriate keyword.

For example, Qantas probably use the keywords cheap flights, but they aren’t targeting cheap air fares. Similarly, you might want to use the words “cheap accommodation” but also consider most people won’t type that into Google, chances are they’ll type in “cheap hotels” or “cheap motel”.

As I’ve explained in previous blog posts, you must not get obsessed with adding as many keywords as possible, but instead should add the right types of keywords.

Google Adword strategies are beyond the scope of this blog post, I just wanted to highlight that BECAUSE searches are getting longer, you need to keep that in mind…

YouTube Tip: Other People’s Videos – An Example

Last week, I mentioned in my blog that you should leverage other people’s youTube videos. I’ve since realised that I should lead by example and show you what I mean by leveraging someone else’s video – in this instance it’s Paul Telling, T-E-L-L-I-N-G’s video.

YouTube Tip: Use Other People’s Videos

This example is ideal because it triangulates a lot of VALUE for you. First of all, you need to know who Paul Telling is. He’s an amazing graphic artist, client and friend. You can access his website at the hyperlink above. He was also a participant at our inaugural edition of the Unleash The Speaker Within event.

By telling you about Paul, I am also creating a series of hyperlinks for you to see what we’re all about, I Kall them Killer Konversations – part of the Killer Kopywriting System I’ve developed.

Of course Paul has attended the Killer Kopywriting Workshop…

But getting back on track – Paul attended Unleash The Speaker Within and this was his final performance:

Paul Telling’s Testimonial about the Unleash The Speaker Within event is below:

And now for HIS video… that I have embedded here for you: It’s an exercise as part of the Professional Protege Program that encompasses the Unleash The Speaker Within event…

So there you have it in a round about way – LEVERAGING the power of YouTube for YOUR benefit!

YouTube Tip: Use Other People’s Videos

In my previous post, I mentioned that YouTube reached 1 billion views/day… What can you start to do NOW to start leveraging this incredible Internet Marketing tool?

YouTube Tip #1: Use other people’s videos

That’s right, embed their videos on your blog and/or website. Each time someone watches the video on YOUR site, YOU get the Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) benefit. If the video is 1 minute, you get one visitor staying on your page for 1 minute. That is a substantial amount of time – don’t try to get longer videos, research has shown that less is more – more people will watch shorter videos. Only use longer videos for education and information to EXISTING prospects and clients.

To use their videos, you just need to cut and paste the embed code on the right hand side of the video on the YouTube page. It’s that simple – if you don’t know what I’m talking about – ask your webmaster, he/she will know. If not, get someone else to help you with your website.

Yes, I can hear you all the way here – THIS IS TOO SIMPLE.

I know – that’s why so few people do it… Go on, take a look around and see for yourself – MOST PEOPLE ARE NOT DOING THIS.

It’s called the 1 percent improvement doctrine… You know all about it from my videos below:

.com.au or .com?

How country specific domain names effect SEO and Google AdWords performance

Many people ask me what implications “domain name class” have on SEO and Pay Per Click (e.g. Google AdWords) rankings and results.

“Domain name class” is another word for “Top Level Domain”, or the extension on the end of your domain name (e.g. .com, .net, .com.au).  In particular, you should know the implications that country code top level domains (or ccTLD for short) can have on your search engine marketing efforts.

ccTLDs and Organic Search Engine Optimisation

Should your “main” website URL be a .com.au if you’re primarily targeting Australia?

Did You Drink Your Link Juice This Morning?

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), getting free organic traffic to your website or blog is all about what Internet Marketers call having link juice. Have you had your link juice this morning?

By now, you already know how powerful links can be when it comes to your search engine optimization (SEO) efforts. Simply put, a link is a shortcut to quickly get you from one website to another. If you can harness the power of the link, you can make your website or blog a force to be reckoned with. That means higher search engine rankings, more traffic to your site, and, eventually, more customers and more money in your pocket.

Ka-Ching!

Link Juice Defined

So you ask, what is link juice? In short, it’s the key to your popularity with the search engines. The more you have, the higher you can rank in the search engines’ results.

To understand link juice, you first need to understand another SEO term: Link Popularity. Continue reading ‘Did You Drink Your Link Juice This Morning?’

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?

Internet Technical Mastery Event Day 2 On Today In Melbourne

As you know from yesterday’s post, I am in Melbourne at Internet Technical Mastery – A Platinum Program event that is not open to the public… It’s where I reveal the most powerful Internet tips, tricks and techniques like the one I will partially share with you right now.

It’s called www.UserTesting.com you can scroll down to read my testimonial. It’s REAL people giving you REAL feedback on your site or blog.

But here’s the thing…

What feedback do you take and which one do you leave behind?

I’ve done about 10 of them so far – and about 25% of the suggestions would KILL my sales if I did what the reviewer was telling me to change. OWCH!

So how do you decipher what to take and what to leave?

That’s where I come in. At events like Internet Technical Mastery and our upcoming Exponential Internet and Business Building Bootcamp, I explain EXACTLY how to leverage a tool like this so it helps you get that breakthrough you need to be the ONE out of TWENTY who makes money on the Internet…

www.UserTesting.com is a fantastic service YOU MUST USE.

It’s just that if you want to be exponential, you need to know what to change and what NOT TO TOUCH!

Otherwise, every time you have someone new testing it, you’ll keep changing it back and forth, spinning your wheels and not getting anywhere.

www.UserTesting.com is a powerful tool – just like a chainsaw. You need to know HOW to use it to get the outcome you want.

I recommend it to all my clients as an absolute MUST, no two ways about it.

You simply cannot afford not to do it.

BUT, as I said you have to be careful not to UNDO what’s working and there are simple ways to make sure that doesn’t happen and how that can be safely and methodically tested. Come to our Bootcamp or join one of our Membership Programs and I’ll make sure you avoid the mistakes most people make and do what the top 5% Internet Marketers are doing to make more than the other 95% combined.

This blog gives great value for FREE – imagine what I can teach you when you pay for the privilege of being in the room?!?! That is what successful know – the investment pays for itself 10 times over.

To put things in perspective – I took 3 ideas from ONE User Testing Review that increased my conversions by 12% that equates to more than $10,000 of ADDITIONAL NEW SALES of ONE product.

With another site, I incorporated 7 subtle changes that have already increased back-end sales by 8.5% and reduced unsubscribes by 13.4% in the first week of testing.

The challenge you have (we all have) is once again what to change and not change and WHY!

Understanding the WHY means that you can do 10, 20 or even 30 User Testing Reviews and know what to ignore and what to focus on.

How would you like to know the drop-dead-easy strategy I use to get EXPONENTIAL RESULTS INSTANTLY that most people would not think of?

Ask me at the next event and I’ll tell you! This ONE tactic means I get 200, 300% or even 500% more out of EACH User Testing Review than what others are doing!

Yeah I know – that’s a tease – a tease to get you to come to my Bootcamp where for 36 hours you’ll be flooded with tips like this… Want to focus ONLY on the Internet, attend the one-day Internet Millionaire Marketing Event.

E-mail Tip Of The Month – Transactional E-mail

This is another one of the sources of 1 percent improvement that you can schedule to make on an on-going basis. I recently did this and increased the back-end sales for one product line by 36% in less than one month. I reduced my refunds by 1 less per week = $2,000 in SAVED SALES per year…

Don’t Neglect Your Transactional and Event-Triggered Messages

Because transactional, event-triggered and other service-based messages are typically the purview of IT departments, many marketers neglect to incorporate these business-critical messages into their email marketing programs. Of course, you need to carefully evaluate each transactional message and determine the appropriate strategy based on consumer expectations, preferences and CAN-SPAM regulations, but at the very least, you can make sure that the template and content properly reflect your brand.

If you don’t have access to deliverability metrics for your transactional email, you should add that to your list as well. Transactional emails that go undelivered for any reason can damage your brand and ruin a sale. Ideally, you should have a centralized view into all email being sent to your email recipients.

While Jupiter Research finds that the average retailer can generate an additional $2.9 million by adding cross- and up-sell promotions to transactional emails, that’s just one lucrative application. Adding relevant information or easy access to customer service support can go a long way to creating a satisfied customer.

Getting started with a marketing program for transactional email doesn’t have to be difficult, and the following tips will show you how:

Inventory Your Transactional Messages

The first you need to do is inventory all of your current and planned transactional messages. When evaluating your various types of customer email communications keep in mind that transactional messages take on many different forms. While confirmation emails for website registrations and product purchases are the most obvious, don’t forget to include warranty information, periodic account balance notifications, product updates and other terms-of-service communications.

Recently, I subscribed to a list and the FORMAT of the e-mails I was getting was so bad, my impression of the author was shaken with typographic and grammatical errors in the STANDARD message sections…

Create Objectives for Leveraging Each Type of Message

After identifying all of your transactional emails, the next step is to determine what kind of marketing messages are best suited for each communication. Adding cross- and up-sell product promotions to purchase confirmation emails is a good start, but there are many other messages that can drive customer retention and engagement with your brand. These include relevant resources, such as whitepapers and consumer guides, or even information on local weather or events. In some cases, you may just want to reinforce a positive perception of the brand itself. Just be sure your messages are relevant to the transactional message and your audience.

For ONE of my products, I did exactly that – DOUBLING my sales and increasing my unsubscribes by less than 0.6 percent. Then as I tracked the opt-outs – something weird happened – they went back down and to LESS than they were previously! People as it turns out WANTED more solutions… NOT fewer options!

Develop Dynamic Email Templates and Integration

In order to ensure that you’re adding relevant content, you need to design a dynamic email template with business rules that pull the relevant information from various internal and external databases. Integration with these systems will enable you to send a customized, real-time message that demonstrates your understanding and respect for the customer relationship.

I have to admit this is not easy – but at least KNOWING it can be done gives you inspiration for the future – when you do get to this level of sophistication, you are a totally streamlined online money-making machine!

Set up Tracking and Initiate Testing

The last step, and one of the most important, is to set up all of the proper email tracking and reporting mechanisms that will enable you to adjust your marketing programs based on real-time delivery and open and click data. Ideally, your email marketing system should offer a centralized view of all your transactional and non-transactional marketing streams. Of course, you don’t want to deploy something as critical as transactional email without proper testing. When setting up a testing program, make sure that you evaluate every aspect of the email – including design, integration, deliverability, tracking and reporting.

This is the easiest thing to do because most systems do it for you – all you need to make sure you do is set them up and then LOOK AT THE REPORTS!
