Ok I need some HELP you guys, *Not new to IM

Anyways Im interested in pursuing the Offline niche pretty hard however,
I am overwhelmed with how to go about it. Basically I've been looking at courses and WSO offers to see which can benefit me the most. One in particular is I course that actully was just re-lauched on 6/24/09

The course is by Kevin Wilke of NitroMarketing it about 1500 bucks, was wondering could anyone if joined the course share your thoughts about it.

Moreover if you have experience in the offline niche can you please share advice and any additional info of what really helped you to see success in this niche.

Also what the best way of going about it? Me personally Im looking to do this from home using the phone. Not to big or giving presentation atleast of yet.

      You might want to join the private forum. It has a lot of good content related to offline niche.

      I would maybe buy a couple of WSOs from guys like Andrew Cavanghe who is the OFFLINE GOLD Guru.
      Ok thanks for that. I will research that immediately, However I have a private membership however its tough looking for stuff related to the niche

      You know, I have purchased pretty much every offline WSO and I have gone through many of the offline threads on this forum, and as much as it is all great information, it cannot compare to Kevin Wilke's Local Businest is Money Machine.

      I purchased LBMM and is absolutely amazing and much better than anything I have seen on the Warrior Forum (no offense to the warriors here). There is so much more information, and everything is complete step by step. They have a ton on find clients and even more on different methods of promoting the clients websites. They discuss different packages/services to sell, how to close the deal, how to promote the clients, etc. It is all step by step.

      I don't like it when people keep saying you can get everything from this forum, especially when they don't have the product. Yes, this forum is great, but there are a lot of things it doesn't cover that are covered in the high ticket products.

      Sure, you don't need to spend the money, but it will greatly shorten your learning curve and it will make you a lot more money if you actually apply what you learn.

      That is my opinion, and I actually have purchased the course and many offline WSOs.

        Thanks for the feedback Shawn. They are now ready for a (3rd?) relaunch and I'm looking into it (for the first time).

        My situation is this: I already have an established (coupon) marketing program in my local area. I sell every day, and I'm not really concerned with that (though I could always learn of course). I'm MUCH more interested in the techniques that will make my clients $$$...

        1. Can you expound on what you've learned with their system? Specifically with regard to making your clients money. What have you personally been able to accomplish (if you don't mind)? What specifically do they teach in this regard?

        2. What about OUTSOURCING? I've already got all I need to hire Filipino outsourcers, so not concerned with that. What I DO want it VIDEO TRAINING on how to do the things above, so that I can pass this along to my outsourcers.

        3. Keeping the above information in mind, do you think I'm losing a larger portion of the value of the package? IOW, would it be worth the (relatively whopping) $1500 smackers to you if you were me?

        Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for the great info. It is hard to navigate your way through all the online programs that get thrown at you. Its good to hear the feed back of an actual client/ customer of the product. i thought it would be a great investment but wasn't sure. I thank you for your time and i am seriously considering this purchase.. thanks again for your insight..

    I went ahead and purchased... even got the OTO.

    Very happy so far. Seem to have good info- basic enough for those of us who are newer to the game.

    I thought I would'nt need the sales training as much but they have some REALLY good stuff.

    Kevin has spent a lot of time and money on personal development and sales/speaking training and it shows. He is good at teaching it too.

    If anyone has questions, let me know.

      Hi there, I do have a question. I am thinking of buying this myself. What are the upsells and how much?

      Much appreciated

    I also purchased the LBMM from kevin Wilke and attended the Everyday Entrepreneur in Dallas. That I didn't need, because it was an intro(Everyday Entrepreneur) ...However, where do I start with the LBMM.
    I'm floored with the amount of information and the way it is broken down in bite size pieces.

    Everything you need is there or accessible. I have been online for a while with very little success and within 2 weeks I landed by first client for $1200.00. And have a even bigger contract to teach 12 entrepreneur internet marketing strategies.

    In my opinion... if you purchase that course you will never have to look to the left, right, side or back...it's all inclusive.

    I'm sold....... it has changed my life forever....
    For a matter of fact the link below is from one of my clients. They have a revolutionary product that I'm helping them market. ( it's in the beauty industry so I'm not trying to sell anything here. Once you go to the site click on the video)

    Now before you become disappointed about the site, as I type this, for one of my keywords, I'm one, two and three on the first page of Google.(start 5 days ago)
    the main thing a learn...stop trying to be perfect. It doesn't have to be pretty just productive. It's not there main website, it's just where I place my articles and stuff to drive traffic to there site.
    I'm amazed.

      Thank you for that info Deborah. I have a couple of things to ask:

      1. What are the upsells? I want to buy the course but I want to anticipate the OTO so have the cash ready

      2. Looks like an exciting product your involved with there. I can see the website is a wordpress blog. Did you create the video though?

      Best regards

    Looks like this is launching again - Ryan Deiss is promoting it. I would love to hear from someone who has taken the course, implemented what you learned and gone on to a successful offline biz with this material. Anyone out there?

    I already have a several offline clients and feel fairly confident that I know probably about 70% of what is in the course. To me, however, if I get one small piece that is important, it is well worth the purchase.

    My main question is this: How is the outsourcing piece? I've had absolutely no problem getting clients. My problem is that I'm at capacity. I need to systematize and outsource in a big way in order to make this thing explode. If anyone has any feedback on what you learned about outsourcing, I'd love to hear your recommendation about whether or not this course is good in that regard.

    Thanks,

    Becky

      Hi Becky,

      Just curious what YOUR techniques have been, and what strategies you may be helping your clients with. Sounds like you're already doing really well with this, although you obviously are wanting to scale it via outsourcing.

      Thanks,
      Andy

        Becky,
        I bought the course back in Dec. It definitely is filled with content. However, it also misses key pieces. I've spent many hours doing additional research to fill in the blanks to implement the services. Thank God for this forum! It's been a huge blessing to fill in some of missing information or areas where they don't get deep enough.

        Not wanting to be "just another SEO expert-wannabe" I wanted to make sure I knew the information at a very deep level. Unfortunately, they don't get very deep in the SEO strategies, and they don't get into SEM very much at all. For the SEO they cover the basics well.

        In addition, many are posting questions in the forum and wondering where our leaders are at. Virtually no forum support from leaders. Members aren't providing much help either. Like many forums, there are a few members doing most of the replies, but they're learning like the rest of us. Would really like to see them bring on an SEO expert as a moderator.

        I haven't been disappointed in the course and I do feel it's worth the money spent on it. However, for me they haven't fulfilled what they promised in the sales letter.

        I guess you could look at it this way ... If you're just looking to do the basics and make money, no problem but if you're worried about competition or going up against a very seasoned SEO expert who knows his trade very well you'll find you don't have the depth of knowledge to compete.

        The outsourcing info was very good, I thought. To do a thorough job and implement all of the SEO strategies taught you'll either need to outsource many of the tasks or create a team because no one person could do it all for very many clients.

        Anyway, I hope this helps.

    From my limited exposure, there are three lead dogs when it comes to the Local Biz market (not in order):

    HOWIE SCHWARTZ
    Howie was the first guy I noticed who talked about making money being an IM consultant to local businesses with his IM Local product.

    SCOTT GALLAGHER
    Scott has a program that launched in the fall.

    KEVIN WILKE
    He launched his program in the fall, but I guess now he is re-launching it with a major push from affiliates.

    Have not heard anything about the results from independent sources, but there are a lot of testimonials on each of their websites.

    I just listened to the Ryan Deiss + Kevin W. webinar and it sounds VERY tempting. I am mostly interested in the selling part. Get the client without selling. Kevin showed this strategy (or the tip of the ice berg) about how to get the client without selling. I think this is a key element to getting those $1000 / month clients...

    Anyone who used these exact strategies? Maybe another source like a WSO that would get into this stuff too? I've got some WSO's on offline but I would like to know if there are any significant WSO's available on this topic?

    Go to Nitro Marketing's website and you'll see 4 videos that I would recommend watching. It not only includes the exact PowerPoint Kevin did with Ryan, but 3 other videos.

    I am NOT an affiliate for this system. I think it is a great system and I will purchase it for myself.

    Please be advised - when you visit Kevin's Nitro Marketing page and watch those videos, I believe that the link will inform you that the product is closed.

    Of course we all know that it is NOT closed. The reality is that since he has enlisted a couple of affiliates to promote this product, he has essentially closed any opportunity to purchase the product from him directly. So, as of right now, he has a special, enhanced sales page that he is directing people to. I received this email last night from Ryan shortly after the webinar ended:

    Hey, It's Ryan...

    Dang, that was an AMAZING webinar!

    We just wrapped up and if you missed it you really
    did miss out. It was maybe the best one I've ever
    even been ON!

    Almost 4000 people joined me an Kevin Wilke as
    he shared how many of his students are making $10K
    per month and more helping local businesses get
    on line.

    Kevin is allowing me to sen out ONE and only ONE

    Looks like this program gets some good kudos.

    I'm interested in hearing from anyone who has worked the business - and what kind of success you've had.

    Here are some questions I have for you:

    * what is the competitive landscape like in your city for LBMM type services
    * do the prospects/clients perceive value in the services offered
    * have you been able to attract and maintain clients - if so, how many
    * what was your conversion ratio - prospect to client
    * what monthly fee were you able to charge, did you charge set up fees
    * how long do clients stick with the services
    * how good is Nitro's outsourcing team/services - are they easy to work with

    This is a question about the program itself:

    * does it touch on mobile marketing
    * if not, is this a concern in your mind (i.e. are clients looking for this yet, or would they perceive value in mobile marketing expertise/services)

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I chose to use the 30 day money back for this course, LBMM. And I am here to tell my nitro support problems, as no one in their support is getting back to me. It took 5 days for them to return my $$. After it was returned, they charged my bank account again by mistake. Now they are not responding at all to my support tickets, and Kevin Wilke is nowhere to be found. Maybe he is reading this. I hope all of you thinking about this course take note, the support at nitrosupport does NOT respond appropriately.

    That is disconcerting to hear Kit. Other than your report the vibe that I am getting from this thread and the others that I have read on it is that it is a pretty good product.

    Why did you request your refund?

      Thanks for relaying your experience with Nitro support Kit. Appreciated and noted.

      Can you share why you decided to return the package? Was the information deficient or incomplete in some way? Did you find it difficult to implement? Was the system missing certain elements? Did local businesses in your area not find the services you offered valuable? Some other reason?

      Thanks again.

      I purchased the product and I must say, it is good. There is a lot of information and the 2 instructors are very good at teaching. However, I refunded the purchase because I was unable to obtain the type of income described in the sales letter.

      I'm not talking-down about this product, I just wasn't able to get clients as instructed through this course, and I am a firm believer in utilizing a money-back guarantee when unsuccessful with a program.

      If anybody is on the fence about whether to purchase the LBMM program, I would say go for it with the understanding that if you are unsuccessful, you can get a full refund.

        I purchased the Local Business Money Machine within the last 30 days. I purchased and paid in full to get the 2- 30min. extra and personal training calls. It is now coming up on 30 days and have not heard a single thing about those private calls worth an extra 5-10K:

        Here it is from the sales page:

        • Option #1: $997 Today (Your Best Option - Save $158 & receive two 30-Minute Consultations when you select this option - tap directly into our wisdom and have it applied directly to your business. What you will gain from these consults usually adds another $5,000 to $10,000 in profits to your business.) - I'll take instant access to the entire interactive online training program and pay in full today.
        The only call I've gotten is to sell me on the Special Private Coaching program.... 6 months for $10,000!!! 1 yr. for 20k. And the person who said the forum support is weak is spot on. The leaders are nowhere to be found. Hmmm?

        The information is ok, but I agree there are alot of missing pieces for that kind of money... I am really on the fence on refund at this point. I wish the program was as well put together and organized as the sales letter.

        C.

    I, too, bought this product, and experienced the same problems Kit had in getting a refund. The support staff did their best to stall and delay returning my money, and after many weeks of telling me 'the refund was coming', I had no option but to get my credit card company involved.

    The reason I asked for a refund was simple -- I found something better that was less expensive and offered more value. If you haven't looked around, Kevin's program seems fine. But I went looking for other options because I found Kevin's outsourcing was expensive and weak -- and the outsourcing I'm currently using is inexpensive and very comprehensive.

    I'll be glad to share the details with anyone who is interested.
