Here we are again, another year in the Internet Marketing world comes to an end. So what did you make of 2010 and what are your plans for 2011?
For me 2010 was a bit of a strange year, I moved into a brand new office and I have became more productive than ever but it seemed to take me a few months to get going, I think I was just enjoying being an Internet Marketer and the freedom that brought me so I didn’t really do a great deal in the first half of 2010 apart from the relaunch of my Masterclass Program. That is now an evergreen product and pretty much takes care of itself.
I was a lot busier in the 2nd half of the year and I have just came off the back of a major launch with Affiliate Promo Formula. This actually took me almost 3 months to put together and was over 12 months in the making. The launch did really well and we have done over $50,000 in sales since launch last week.
There was over 500 hours put into creating this product and I initially sold it for only $37, I could have sold it for a lot more but I wanted to put this in front of as many people as possible. Also, what people who didn’t buy Affiliate Promo Formula will fail to see is the work that is going on behind the scenes with the Affiliate Alliance. This is a product that was created as a complimentary upsell to Affiliate Promo Formula and it involves me working with people on a personal level throughout 2011 as I reveal all I know about becoming a successful affiliate. I will be putting a lot of work into this in 2011.
I also released a couple of smaller $10 products and had a couple of 72 hour fire-sales with The 72 Hours of Madness (I’ll be running this again on Boxing Day) that proved very popular.
So why am I telling you this?
Well the reason is that no matter what you may think of the Internet Marketing world and whatever people tell you one thing will never change.
People will always be looking for information and it’s our job to provide this information.
I know I keep banging on about this but the key to your Internet Marketing success is to create and keep creating new information products and to use these products to build an army of followers. As long as you keep putting buy buttons and opt-in forms in front of people you can’t really go wrong.
I had a lazy year this year, I only had one major product launch and one re-launch but I still managed to earn 10 times more than I used to at my regular job.
So as we come to the end of 2010 I want to give you the best piece of advice I could ever give you, are you ready? Here it is.
Stop looking for the magic bullet because you will never find it. Ignore the promise of easy riches in the form of clever sales copy and unscrupulous marketers who don’t care about your welfare and get to work. Create valuable, useful content that people want to consume and success is almost guaranteed in 2011.
One thing I have never ever done is tell you succeeding in this business is easy, it can be but it takes a great deal of work to get going but if you truly want to be successful you need to be prepared to work at it.
So will you join me in 2011 and be prepared to knuckle down and do what it takes to become successful? If the answer is yes then I look forward to working with you as I have a lot of exciting things planned and it starts in early 2011. If the answer is no then you are on the wrong marketers mailing list and are in for a disappointing year ahead as I won’t be selling or pitching automated push button systems that simply don’t deliver. So you can either stop dreaming or knuckle down to work. I know what most will do…
Let me tell you one thing and you can quote me on this.
“2011 will be the year the ethical marketer prospers. People are sick of buying poor quality products and are un-subscribing from questionable marketers lists in droves. If you want to see proof of this simply check out the product review section of the Warrior Forum”
My aim is to educate as many people as possible and teach them how to become a success in 2011 by showing people how to create quality products that people want to buy and letting people see deep inside my business for the very first time. This is something I’ll be discussing in the coming weeks.
In the meantime may I take this opportunity to wish each and every one of my blog readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.
So how was 2010 for you and what are your plans for 2011, feel free to comment?
