Greetings Fellow Internet Marketers,
A couple of years ago I successfully completed John’s Marketing Masterclass and became a product vendor in my own right. Understandably I was excited & very pleased with myself at having my first product for sale over at Clickbank, so I merrily went about my business with John’s last words to me ringing in my ears…’go ahead and rinse and repeat’… John was talking about everything I’d learned over the previous 36-weeks.
So off I went and did just that. I set about creating more products and I now have several products for sale online. Happy Dances all round, or so I thought, but something was missing – and at first I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.
As we all know Internet Marketing is one of those things that not everyone gets…and maybe your spouse gets a little fed up with you being at your laptop working away on all those ‘get rich quick schemes’…sound familiar? So when the successes come along who can you ‘really’ celebrate with?
After a while it dawned on me that I needed to work as part of a Team, to share the workload, share the profits and share the successes! And at first thoughts you may think to yourself that you can do all the work and prefer to keep all the profits to yourself. But let me ask you, would you rather have 100% of a little pot of money or a smaller percentage of a much bigger pot of money?…easy answer, right!
I spend a lot of my time working online in the Golf Niche and having looked around at all the products that are available I knew I needed to create something really special to have a chance of tapping into the hungry buyers that are in the golf market. I figured the best way to do this would be to get a golf expert on board, so I did some research and approached Richard Lawless, a PGA Professional Golf Coach, I explained to him what Internet Marketing was all about and how I was going to make him very wealthy.
He came on board, we set up a Website called Weekend Golfers and then created our first video coaching product called Drive For Show. (www.driveforshow.info)
So we now have a quality product…but as we all know sales don’t just happen.
Next team member on my list was an expert at Affiliate Marketing, or rather an expert at ‘Marketing to Affiliates’ someone who knows how to set up all the affiliate resources and make our proposition so attractive that the Super Affiliates would come looking. Enter Gary Caine. Gary is now the Affiliate Manager at Weekend Golfers.
Gary’s prime goal is to get more Team Members on board in the shape of Affiliates. These are perhaps the most important team members you can have…and the one’s that can really boost your online business. By making as many affiliate resources available as possible, the aim is to make the Affiliate’s job as easy as possible to sell our product for us. Helping them make more sales which in turn will obviously make us more sales.
During this team building process I have learned a great deal about sharing tasks and letting people with better skills do the jobs where I was lacking. The end result is a much better product and a team of people sharing a common goal. Since I made this decision I haven’t looked back and my online efforts have gone from ‘ok’ to me being very excited about the future.
If you have your own product then I can highly recommend building a team is the way to take your business forward, take a look at the www.wgaffiliatesteam.com website to see what I mean and if you would like to learn how to create your own online business then I obviously ‘highly recommend’ John’s Masterclass course as it got me where I am today.
