Internet Marketers are Magpies – we beg borrow and steal!
Thanks to Ian for giving me the idea for this post.
If you haven’t yet checked out my Perpetual Motion Marketing System you can do so here. – it’s free.
These simple ‘tweaks’ to my sales funnel brought me over $20,000 while I was just testing it out!
Actually the figure was more like $27,000 but like a prat I didn’t screenshot the figures at the time so could only give proof of around $20k.
Not complaining though 🙂
So – why the reference to Magpies?
Well the idea for Perpetual Motion Marketing System came from a few different sources and I want to show you why you should never stop learning, why in my opinion, the most profitable thing you can ever do online is develop the skill to extract the golden nuggets from any information you come across.
The main ‘nudge’ I had for this system was from Lee Mcintyre.
He allowed me behind the scenes of his setup quite a while ago follwing an interview I did with him.
I laughed during the interview and told him I was ‘taking notes’ of the info he was giving out.
I wasn’t joking! Lee is a very clever, very generous marketer and he’s been kind enough in the past to mention my name as someone whol helped him to get started.
Well now I’m equally happy to say a big thanks to Lee for showing me how his ‘engine’ worked.
So Lee’s system was a big influence in me testing this system and incorporating it into my own funnel.
There’s a fair bit of my own experience and ideas in there too, such as the automatic recruitment of affiliates (the main aspect for automating the traffic process) and found that sending new subscribers to an OTO BEFORE they confirm their email address results in a slightly lower opt-in rate but a significantly higher conversion rate for the OTO.
Russell Brunson was also an influence on where to use short and clever’pre-sells’ in the process (you’ll see this in the Perpetual Motion funnel rather than the 90 days one) and this made an impact on conversion rates too.
There are also influences from Mike Filsaime, Paul Myers, Frank Kern, a ‘gem’ from Tahir Shah after a skype chat, and a verbal kick in the ass from Soren Jordenson who told me how I was leaving a ‘pile of money’ on the table by not doing one particular thing.
Oh….. and a SHEDLOAD from the feedback I got from KickStart Course members.
And a dash of ‘influence’ from a nice case of Red my wife’s uncle brought us back from France.
So thanks guys.
Extremely apprecaited, I hope this gives an insight into why being a bit of a beachcomber when it comes to finding and using the ‘gold’ in other people’s methods is possibly the most important skill you can develop online.
Except for …. putting your own stamp on everything you do.
There’s more to come on this next year………………
