Is Your Business Complete?
By Dustin Mathews
Every information marketing business should consider implementing the following…
Published Book: Author Status- When I fired my boss at the age of 25, I didn’t have a recognized name. Concerned with my age and perceived lack of credibility, I published my first book, “How To Get Rich Working For FREE.” Instead of handing out business cards, I handed out my book.
RESULTS: Conversations changed and JVs started lining up to do business
Offline Newsletter: Affiliate MASTER Strategy – Knowing that if I could stay in front of promoters, speakers and people with BIG lists I decided to write Dirty Talk. I created an edgy name that gained the industry’s attention and positioned me as the “guy to know” in the business.
RESULTS: Notoriety & Speaking Gigs
Speaking, Platform Selling, Seminars - With invitations to speak, I put together a 90 minute pitch. For an entire year, I traveled the country. Everything from speaking at the backroom in a Denny’s to sharing the stage in front of 800+
RESULTS: Generated $250,000+ in the first year
Mass Media: Television - Although not ABC, CBS or NBC (yet), I jumped at the opportunity to be on a local TV show. While I was there I asked the guest if he needed additional guests for the show. I then leveraged the show to get gurus, traveling speakers and business associates on.
RESULTS: Increased credibility, joint ventures sky-rocketed and incredibly cool use of the “As Seen On TV” logo
Info-Products: Memberships Sites - Longing to get off the road, I took the info-product I was selling from stage, Business Credit Infusion, and put it online. After automating the sales process, this business generates 6 figures per year with one employee.
RESULTS: Less traveling, money while sleeping, freedom to start a new business
Internet Marketing: Product Launches – Intrigued by the internet and the thought of driving thousands of orders in a week, I began working with info-marketers behind the scenes of the biggest product launches.
RESULTS: Mainly, in the real estate info-product space, I ran 10 product launches responsible for 10,000+ new buyers and $10 million dollars in sales.
High End Programs: Coaching & Consulting – One piece that I lacked early on as an info-marketer was a high priced back end. So I created a $10,000 consulting day and $25K coaching program for speakers.
RESULTS: Working with world’s top speakers and students are outrageously successful after a day with us
As you can see, these are definitely winning strategies. Come meet Dustin Mathews at the Author Speaking Empire LIVE event – October 18-21 in Irvine, California. Click this link to register for the event: http://Invite.AuthorSpeakingEmpire.com.
