A friend of mine asked me to please do an Internet Marketing presentation to his International Business Administration class right here in Mexico in one of the top universities. I REALLY didn't want to do it and thought it was a waste of my precious time. But I owed him one, so I sort of had to.
Anyway, this was two hours ago from the time I am writing this. I thought to myself "Oh well, might as well get some free publicity." (I couldn't charge for the presentation.) This was adressed to a class of 50 people.
These guys had absolutely no clue about Internet Marketing, so I did a very basic Power Point presentation and I was bombarded with questions, everyone was really interested and of course, I got to promote my IM niche product.
I explained affiliate marketing to them in high detail, at the end of the class one of the students approached me and said:
"...I am working for [Company Name] (Huge Multi National Corporation) here in Mexico, I'm in the marketing department and I have access to the company's mailing list which is composed of over 750,000 direct mail and e-mail adresses from all over the world. Give me the affiliate link for your IM system (my product) and I will send a promotion about it this week."
To make it short, I just landed a HUGE Joint Venture with a list of over 750,000 adresses (both physical and digital) that is going to promote my product. Even if only 1% converts for a $47 product (with 50% commission minus fees) that is $159,225 USD right there for me (and for him).
As a newbie, that is the best possible JV I could've ever landed, that is a bigger list than almost every single Internet Marketer out there (with the exception of people like Mike Filsaime), and it was offered by a STUDENT who happens to have access to the mailing list of that company probably just because his rich daddy owns half of the shares in Mexico, I didn't have to contact the CEO or anything like that.
And I did it all just by doing a presentation in a third world country university to a class of only 50 students which I DID NOT want to do in the first place.
So get your butt out of your chair and start going offline as well.
Best of luck,
PS: While at it, I also landed a couple of dates with some VERY good looking college students (who approached me, not the other way around).
The professor for the class I did the presentation to called me today and asked me to please do a conference in the university to the entire International Business Administation student body (Over 850 students) about IM similar to the class presentation.
I gotta love this, a presentation I didn't even want to do in the first place is generating all these opportunities.
Oh and one of the dates went fine yestarday, VERY high conversion.
I will post the PG-13 pictures soon.
The video I've already sold to a fellow warrior in the adult industry and signed an NDA, so sorry.
Things keep getting better and better (or is this bad?)
The guy gave me the company database, 450,000 e-mails (Wasn't 750,000, but still a great number). He said he couldn't do the broadcast himself but that I could have the database to play with it.
Guys, I need advice here, how can I use a DB that large effectively AND legally?
