Looking to hire a Warrior Consultant- Great Fee on offer!

by marktheonlinesurfer 15 replies
Hello fellow warriors,

I have truly enjoyed this forum and over the course of the last year and a half I have been trying to learn as much as I can and have purchased a number of WSOs, ebooks, mini-reports and so on. I have been going through a learning curve.

Since discovering this world of IM, it has been my dream to create a full time income online, so I can leave my day job and be free. I have tried several online business models which have failed.

I have now come to the point, where I think I will benefit the most by having a mentor, a consultant work with me.

Here is what it is on offer:

I am offering to pay a reasonable consulting fee for a senior warrior member (you will have to have a track record and be quite successful in IM and have an online business) to have a look at my current business model. I will provide you with all the details on my online business model and I will need you to analyse it and then come up with a strategy report that provides me with constructive feedback and makes suggestions on what I can do to succeed and make money.

I have blew a lot of money so far, I have been spending a lot on PPC, I am in the negative.

My main business model is list building. I am building a list in a particular niche which I am very familiar with (not making money online or IM), in fact I would call myself an expert in that niche. I have a lot of value to offer. However, I am not making any money, I am losing money on advertising. I am not converting my list into sales. Basically, I need a lot of help and I have come to the point where I need a mentor to coach me.

I don't have a lot of money to spend, but I am willing to pay initially a reasonable fee. And after that period, I am also happy to offer a profit-sharing scheme where you will get to profit from my future business growth. I will make sure this will be profitable for you.

This could be a fantastic opportunity for the right warrior.

Please send me a PM if you are interested and tell me a bit about yourself and what would qualify you.

Thanks,

Mark

    Mark, please read your post and look at what you're asking for.

    You want a Warrior who is very successful (ambiguous, but one could
    pretty much guess what you mean by this) and yet you say you don't have
    a lot of money to spend.

    I see this time and time again. People want the cream of the crop but don't
    want to pay for it.

    These people ARE as successful as they are because they don't spend time
    mentoring people for peanuts. Sure, maybe you might find somebody in the
    class that you're looking for who will take you on out of the goodness of
    their heart or for peanuts, but if I were a betting man, I wouldn't bet my
    life on it.

    Now naturally, somebody is going to come along and say, "sure" just to
    prove me wrong.

    Just make sure you get sufficient documentation from the person that
    they are actually as successful as they say they are.

    People can talk a good game...but not everybody can deliver.

    I wish you luck in your quest.

      I'm gonna have to go with Steven on this one.

      If your budget is limited (as you say it is), you might want to find someone more successful than you, but not the top of the class.

      That way, you could learn new things from someone with more success than you have, but also be able to pay a more reasonable fee to your mentor.

    Ditto. If you want good work, you'll have to pay the premium price. If you shop wisely, you should come out ahead in the long run.

      30 minutes with John very well could be better than 3 days with someone else. If I were you, I would take him up on his offer. If you don't, I'm going to call him and pretend to be you

  • Thanks for the posts. Out of interest- what is premium price these days?

    My budget is limited but not "that" limited. I feel I can afford to pay a pretty good fee. After all, I have spent thousands on online advertising and IM products thus far, so I believe this would be a smart investment.

    When I said it would be profitable for the right warrior- I meant it. Of course, I wasn't going to offer peanuts.

      PM me a link to your site. I can probably tell you what's wrong in 10
      minutes.

      ** EDIT ** I'm bored tonight and have 2 hours until Desperate Housewives
      comes on. If I can't figure out what's wrong in 2 hours then your problem
      is way too complex for a simple "walk through" and you'll need some
      serious mentoring. We can discuss my fee if you're interested. I usually
      don't do this, but like I said, I'm bored and I'm giving you 2 hours for
      nothing. I need your site, your advertising avenue, keywords you're using
      and anything else you think I should know.

            Okay, here is what I got out of about 20 minutes on this. I am posting this
            here so that others can learn from this.

            1. I won't list the actual keywords used (at least the ones I found on the
            squeeze page) but here are the KEI stats.

            MS CS KEI

            960, 247,000 KEI 3.73
            0, 154,000 KEI 0
            120, 282,000, KEI 0.05
            1290, 1,180,000 KEI 1.41
            360, 35,400 KEI 3.66
            1,620, 169,000 KEI 15.52
            360, 31,100 KEI 4.16
            210, 956 KEI 46.12
            90, 17,000 KEI 0.47
            5,010, 123,000 KEI 204.06

            MS is monthly searches. As you can see, only 3 of the keywords have
            a decent number of monthly searches. Only one is very good.

            The KEIs are horrible except for the one, the last one. So the amount
            of traffic you're going to get from this isn't going to be off the charts to
            begin with. I'll guess that if you get 5 opt ins in a day, that's a lot for
            you. Maybe 10 tops.

            Next problem is the squeeze page. The copy is so so at best.

            Now, this is where the big mistake comes in. If you've been losing
            lots of money on this on Adwords, I'm going to guess that you didn't
            bother testing this out with free advertising first to see if your system
            (newsletter, etc.) converts. You could have probably gotten just as
            many subscribers through a steady stream of article writing and then
            been able to discover how well you newsletter converts to buyers. That
            alone would have saved you tons of money.

            I'm going to say, without actually digging into the keywords more,
            that your keyword research could have been better. I happen to know
            that this niche has potential but not with such a poor selection of
            keywords. I mean for crying out loud, your second keyword doesn't get
            any searches at all. So I have to ask...DID you even do proper keyword
            research?

            As for the newsletter itself, in this niche, if you give them too much info,
            it's doubtful they'll buy. So I'd have to look at the newsletters to be able
            to get a feel for that.

            Stop your Adwords campaign. It's obvious that there is a serious problem
            and you're only throwing good money after bad.

            I've got an hour and a half left before Desperate comes on.

            Let's see what we can do until then.

            • Thanks a lot for the help Steven!

              You are spot on with guessing how many sign-ups I am getting!

              Yes I agree keyword research could have been much better.

              I am going to stop my adwords campaign for now.

              Okay, 2 more problems.

              Mark sent me the newsletter. I didn't read them all in their entirety.

              I didn't have to.

              I could have made a book out of this series.

              Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free. The info Mark has
              laid out in this series is EVERYTHING you need to know on the subject and
              then some. And that's just skimming them. One of the most informative
              newsletters I have seen on any subject. Very well written...and way too
              much info. So most informative, in this case, doesn't translate into good.

              It translates into no sales.

              But...with a great product...maybe a prayer.

              But that's where the next mistake was made.

              The stats of this product suggest to me that is doesn't sell. The gravity
              is almost non existent.

              So, you compound and overinformative newsletter with a poorly chosen
              product and there you have the results.

              This whole thing needs a complete overhaul from the approach used to
              building the list, informing the list and the choice of the product to sell
              to the list.

              A 3 strikes total disaster.

              All in under an hour.

                I take it (by what you are saying) that Mark could compile a better product than the one he is actually promoting with just the information in his newsletter?

                  Without actually seeing the product, I'd only be guessing, but I can say
                  that the quality of the newsletter was excellent and if expanded, could be
                  an excellent product.

                    Well, there you go Mark, an interesting idea with great potential if you implement the proper business model. It seems to me (by what Steven has analyzed) that you already know a lot about the subject you are promoting.

                    So you should consider doing your own product on the topic, but first you will need to enhance your own marketing skills.

                    OR, offer a very high commissions affiliate program, develop a great product and people like Steven and I will promote it for you.
