Monkey, Tiger and Guinea Pigs. Which are you prepared to be?

by Bev Clement 47 replies
Well we all want to become the monkey, and if any of you don't know who the famous monkey is on the board, then I suggest you do some serious reading.

The tiger, well he won some money today, by being so fast it was crazy.

And Guinea Pigs, now they are interesting people. I took a group of these before but only some of them were serious and finished the course.

It seems the season for competition, and here is one for someone to add to my list of guinea pigs.

I took a group of people and helped them with their business.

Here is the offer for 1 person.

[edited here] Please put your answers in the thread [edit ends here]

Tell me why you deserve to be coached.

What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.

Sell me yourself, and the best sales job will get coaching from me.

You will get help to draw up your business plan, and then help putting that plan into action.

Don't bother to apply if you expect to be rich overnight without doing any work.

Don't bother to apply if you don't really want a business just a hobby.

Don't bother to apply if you say, I know it all but I can't make any money.

Don't bother to apply if you can't be told what to do especially by a woman

You will have access to my by email.

You will need to have skype.

You will need to work hard, and see your business getting off the ground.

Only serious business people need apply.

You might wonder what the cost is? You will need to put in lots of hard work, and depending on what you want to do and your skills, you might need to buy a domain name and hosting. Anything else you will work for.

Let the games begin. Hey, I'm in Hong Kong and we have the Olympics running at the moment.

The results will be announced in 1 week's time.

Get busy.

    I took Bev up on this offer last year. I was one of her first guinea pigs. I was broke and had little to show for all my IM efforts up to that point.

    Less than two months later, I had begun a simple ghostwriting business that paid my bills and left me some cash to spend as I like. As of right now, I'm looking at getting recurring income, totally on autopilot, that will amount to thousands of dollars a month. That's this month. Next month, I'm targeting tens of thousands of dollars!

    There's no magic to this. You MUST do what she says -- if for no other reason than to avoid getting chewed out by a no-nonsense drill-sergeant of a woman!

    Jump on this offer NOW! You'll be able to look back, say a year from now, and realize that you made a very smart move...

      What? No mention of Hamsters? I am so disappointed [disappointed face]

      You will be hearing from the Recognition Of Hamsters Coalition. They are quite fed up with monkeys and tigers hogging the spotlight, and definitely are not going to be outdone by guinea pigs.

      We will overcome. We will overcome. We will ... Oh! Look, a shiny

              I'll try Brian, but some of the original guinea pigs were good students.

              Steve, as soon as I saw your username I wondered if you would have thought you had earned some extra cash.

                Spent some time this morning examining this offer and only decision I am capable of making is---HERE I AM!! Guinea Pig in the rough!!

                1. I am unsure if I really "deserve" this if it is put in same context as "deserving" a social security check or a goodnight kiss on the first date. Only deserving qualifications I can come up with is that I believe I have power to succeed (along with the desire) and one thing I do want to do if I accomplish anything in the IM market is to pass the knowledge to others in my family/friends who could benefit from this type of living.

                2. My desired accomplishment online would be to use/create/market/and other synonyms that would reward me with the ability to care for my wife/kids/grandkids in the manner I was able prior to disability suffered eight years past that keeps me from full time employment. So stated I know that I need to engage in something I can control that will show financial rewards.

                3. You state to sell myself to you---whoops!!!--a "failing" I have is my inability to toot my own horn. Of course this could mean that I have nothing to toot about. However, I have had more than a few off line business successes which managed to pay my way. These were all of some physical nature that I cannot pursue now. Although physical is no more for me as means to produce $$$$ I do still possess a few mental capacities that should suffice.

                4. Areas of help are simple to define---Internet Marketing!! Actually through last two or three years I have put simple sites up for adsense and other venues. None to any great success. PPC, blogging, forum posting--all just out of my everyday grasp now. I believe I have some article/squidoo abilities. Twenty or so pending/approved ezinearticle submissions and a few lenses at squidoo---not with any great success but practice will improve.

                And now I start tooting that horn so I pray I have posted a bit of what you have asked for and in the proper place.

                thank you

                  Young...

                  Energetic...

                  A fresh graduate with a cushy job living in my own condo with my dog and cat.

                  I could be the poster child for success 101..


                  Only that's not true…

                  A year ago, I was only a book advisor – a fancy name for "sales representative" at a local bookstore, working 40 hours per week to cash in my monthly 200 bucks paycheck.

                  That's right: my 200 bucks paycheck.

                  A dollar and 3 cents an hour for 8 daily hours of endless recommendations, pitching, and persuasion. A paycheck I carried back to my parents' home where I still live finishing off my BA degree in English Lit.


                  Do I deserve coaching? I don't. I willing to earn it though and put my heart into it. I believe coaching at this point in time would be beneficial since I've been into too many project/service lines such as: domaining, affiliate marketing, freelancing, etc, only to come up with modest profits that don't live up to the time I've spent on such ventures. It's time for me to open up and take the advice of a more experienced warrior to polish my skills, push my own efforts, and give them a better orientation.

                  At the moment, I wish to start a web content/domaining business, where I'd sell established domains or provide content for existing ones. There are some areas that I seem to miss out on such as: pitching, building a list, and overcoming competition without selling at low rates.

                  Here's what you get with this guinea pig:

                  • An unprecedented will to learn
                  • Availability round the clock
                  • Comes with a fully functional ambition drive

                  Not to mention a WSO bonus of:

                  Animal Friendliness - goes well with monkeys, tigers, and iguanas

                    Hey Bev

                    Can I show this to a fellow warrior (who's been out of the forum cuz I am mentoring him to death) but he does the work and he REALLY NEEDS IT!

                    You all know the usual story, young, married, starting out and lost their job due to the economy.

                    I am helping him and he took action right away. I guess i can "vouch" for him.

    I deserve to be coached because I am sad and lonely and I don't have a life. I'm thinking that by associating with you, your reputation will help me become somebody.

    My lifelong dream has been to grow up to be just like Bev Clement! I know I could never reach those heights but, if I could only just PARTIALLY become like you I would be the happiest man in the world.

    I deserve to be coached because I believe in life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness!

    I deserve to be coached because I know that you are faster than a speeding bullet. I know you are more powerful than a locomotive. I know that you are able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

    Yes, it's Bev Clement! ... Strange visitor from another country who came to Earth with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal men (or women).

    Bev Clement! who can change the course of mighty affiliate programs, write fantastic articles with her bare hands. And who, disguised as a Welsh, mild-mannered member of a great online marketing forum, fights a never-ending battle for Truth, Justice, and the Welsh way!

    GOD BLESS BEV CLEMENT!

        Bev,

        Sincerely...and since I only see two other genuine 'applicants', here's my reply.

        ...I need help launching my product...and here's my answers, Bev.

        1. We already know each other. Not intimately, obviously, but I hope well enough.

        2. I already have a product ready to bring to market. (And it's 100% unique, and relevant to this crowd)

        3. I've written a pre-sell freebie report, which you've already seen. It has 30+ 'testimonials'/positive comments.

        4. I've already made 90% of the IM mistakes it's possible to make...and I made it out the other side unscathed

        5. My One and Only WSO (a written report) sold 50+ copies...with no refunds. In fact, nothing but praise...and 488 SERP's.

        6. I write my own copy, but I admit, I've asked for advice in the past, and will probably ask again.

        7. It would be cool to learn from you.

        Bev, that's my pitch. Pretty low-key, but I hope I'm worth your consideration.

        Cheers,
        Steve

                      Tell me why you deserve to be coached.

                      I don't know if I can say that I deserve to be coached, but I can say that I have desired a coach for years. I believe that where I am in my business being coached by you, Bev will help to get me to the next level in my business. So that I can continue to do what I am really passionate about which is helping others? For example, just today I visited a couple; the husband recently had a stroke and can no longer work. They need help both financially and with finding a source of income. If I were already successful online I could have done several things for them. I could have been in the position to give them a larger financial gift and help them set up an online business. I was so bummed because I could not help them more today. With your help Bev It will help to put me in the position so that the next time I encounter a situation like this, I will be able to offer them a solutions. I can't begin to tell you how many lives I could have already helped.


                      What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.
                      Here is what I would like to accomplish online:
                      1. To get at least 1 of my 3 ebooks launched
                      2. I also have a financial debt reduction application that I need to launch.
                      3. So far I have help other businesses get their website online. This is the area I am currently making some money at locally. I would like to expand that into more of a consulting business, using SEO and the things that I need help with listed below.


                      I need help with auto responder, list building, linking, content for website and putting all the pieces together. I believe once I get one product launched I will not only be able to repeat the process but I can teach it to others.

                      Sell me yourself, and the best sales job will get coaching from me.

                      I have a passion to help others both in Business and Relationships. My husband and I have written 2 e-books that deal with marriage and pre-marriage relationships. We have been teaching this material for the past 12 years to couples and singles. These books have saved and changed many marriages locally. I would like to offer these products online using tele-seminars and one-on-one personal coaching.

                      I have been at this for a while now with not much to show for my effort. I need direction. I have been praying for a coach that could guide me in the right direction. I would like to be able to succeed in this so that I can help others. I believe with your coaching help, Bev I can begin to see some results for all my efforts. I will work hard and follow your instructions. Let me put it this way, If i were sick you would be the medicine I needed to get better. I need this! When you help me... you will be helping many, many others. I look forward to working with you if chosen. Thank you for offering such an opportunity. This is what life is all about, helping others!

                          In any case... some of you'se people looking for a direction...... should jump all over this offer!

                          Cuz Bev Clement knows her stuff...for real.

                          She's the real deal....minus the pomp, circumstance, and hype..aka bullshit.

                          And it appears that Bev's ready to kick ass, take names, and help one of you'se people make some money.

                          So if you're sitting on the fence....best put down the pipe you're hiding behind... and jump all over this opportunity....because they don't drop out of the sky every day.

                          And without sounding like some back stage groupie...I can tell you straight up...Bev is one of the more knowledgeable and respected Warriors on this forum for a reason. She earned it.

                          She's got longevity, credibility, she makes major IM bling bling...and she can cook too.

                          That's like hittin' the trifecta....cuz it's not often a newbie gets a shot to learn from someone who actually goes out and does it.

                      well.. that's because we didn't see or hear about it..
                      and i think myself lucky to have been browsing this forum now..

                      as to your questions:
                      1.Tell me why you deserve to be coached.
                      why i ' deserve' to be coached.. i actually don't have a clue about what I may have done for the world to have earned, and thus deserve, such a diligent tutor
                      what i do know though is that up till now i've always been led to think that i'd want to be an MD..
                      my parents and community have been trying to pull and push me into that path.. and yet there was no pleasure in it on my part
                      it hasn't been until recently that i found out about internet marketing and the likes..
                      and i feel a lot more comfortable with it.. i suddenly found myself reading up on marketing and economics and even management and organisation..
                      I've now started out with PIPS and am actually a bit more active on SFI than the rest of the program (as SFI is free and empowerism and succes university aren't(so i didn't sign up for those, yet.. i may after having a little bit more cash at hand) and on SFI there is a lot of training and tutorials and information.

                      2 What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.
                      what i want to do is earn money.. of course.. now don't we all..
                      well.. i've stated above what i'm currently busy with..
                      and i wish to start attracting useful affiliates to SFI and well.. to any program that might be worth it, like the complete PIPS program..
                      what area i need help with is the actual promotion and recruiting of other affiliates.. it's now day 3 and all i've got are 4 affiliates recruited by me, of which only 1 is mildly active and the rest is completely inactive..(what i need help with is the promotion itself.. and u may include html into that as well.. as i especially need help witn online marketing..)

                      well.. and all this will only be the start of it..
                      after i can get some good money out of these affiliation programs i'd like to consider starting a training program for people who are like i am right now..
                      ppl who want to start a business, either small or big, online or opening a store..

                      another point is that with these skills i would like to venture into the world of fashion..
                      yes.. it may sound weird..
                      but i do have a lot of my own designs and i've got 2 more friends who wish to be designers..
                      and if i can make it out here in this world..
                      i can start a new fashion company of my own or with either or both of my friends..

                      (oh and 3. I will have to work hard.. for if i fail in this journey i will be forced to continue my studies and will be the laughing stock of the family.. the one who broke the chain and failed..
                      truly.. failure is not an option)

                      i guess that's my story..

                      soo.. it seems like a long way to go..
                      but i'm willing to fight..

                      Sincerily,

                        Hi Bev,

                        Thanks for your very generous offer, no matter who gets it.

                        Tell me why you deserve to be coached.

                        Because I married well. While this answer may seem flip, it is not. Like other respondents, it's hard for me to think of myself as "deserving".

                        Sure I try to help others on this forum and elsewhere, but I'm not sure what those efforts really count for.

                        However I feel my wife and family deserve whatever I offer them. And the one thing I want to offer them more than anything is myself. (Not the growly, nasty "Mr. Hyde" I too often appear to be but the decent and lovable "Dr. Jeckle" I know I can be.)

                        More on that in a moment...

                        What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.

                        What I would like to do is find one viable niche and develop it until it returns a reasonable monthly income.

                        Right now I spend an inordinate amount of time (8-10 hours a day) online and I feel like I'm spinning my wheels for most of it..

                        I need the most help in these areas:
                        • Finding and developing a niche
                        • Creating a product for the niche
                        • Website development (building something that looks professional)
                        • Generating traffic
                        • FOCUS

                        Graphics - I'm beyond help.


                        Sell me yourself, and the best sales job will get coaching from me.

                        What do I bring to the table?
                        • An excellent work ethic
                        • A strong desire to succeed
                        • Decent writing skills (IMO)
                        • A good working knowlege of the basics: autoresponders, script installation and use, etc.

                        And now the story continues...

                        As I said before I'm doing this for my family. There's no sob story here. When it comes right down to brass tacks, I must say my life has been blessed even if things haven't turned out as expected. However...

                        My wife has been supporting us for the past 5 years and it's time for things to change. While I've worked very hard to make a go of this business, my results have been dismal. (Note: I just re-read this and it sounds like I'm a bum. I think I should add here, I have contributed to my family in other ways: last year I homeschooled our two boys, and I provide daycare for them and our 3 year-old daughter. I also supplement our income with copywriting though that income is not steady)

                        I need help if I am to meet my goals with this business. My goals are modest - I'd be happy to clear $1000-2000 a month. A $5,000 per month net would be ecstasy but I don't think it's out of the question. If the $5K figure IS a pipe dream, please just say so!

                        Bev, I'll say it flat out. I need your help.

                        I need someone who can look at what's going on and cut to the quick. Tell me what I'm doing wrong and what I'm not doing right and how to get on track.

                        I need someone who understands this biz and can fill in the blanks. I won't say those gaps aren't huge - they may be but I'm a quick study.

                        I'm coachable and teachable and lovable. Okay, at least my wife loves me though that may be more to her credit than my own.

                        If you're willing to do this for me, I'd be happy to do the same for someone else once I'm on solid ground so your own efforts could be multiplied.

                        Thanks again for your offer.

                        God bless,

                        Andy

                          I have been reading through all of the posts and I'm seeing a lot of passive/submissive people here practically begging for help. I don't know what sort of a sales pitch that is, but maybe that's a big reason why this isn't working for most of you.
                          I think you should choose me because I am a marketing student, this is my chosen career path. I'm not just here looking for some golden ticket because I'm out of a job and need a magic pill to feed my babies.
                          I have only been here for a few months, and feel that I have learned quite a bit from all of you so far. Article marketing, PPC's, PLR's, product creation, etc...etc... I have started with a few of these, but I need a push in the right direction and some guidance. I am a quick learner and an excellent student, and I will make you proud if I am chosen.

                            I have spent the morning re-reading the posts on this thread. I find that kicking myself in the rear will not add to my post all that I have considered since.

                            I trust that since Hong Kong is about 15 hours ahead of Pacific time this post will not appear as an attempt to re-balance the scales in any form. Bev has made her decision by now and we all should be satisfied with it. Just the opportunity to post for this has been a bit of a 2 x 4 upside my head to get in gear and get something done. I spent the weekend cleaning up a bit of clutter on my computer (I have learned that you cannot possibly download everything that seems of interest and then find time to research at a later date) and have outlined what I hope will be my course of events in the coming weeks/months.

                            We all need to be grateful that Bev and others like her are on the WF and that help is not only easily accessible but AFFORDABLE.

                            I appreciate Daniel's post above and have sent him a pm regarding that. So said, Andy if I am not being coached by Bev within the next 48 hours or so I would like to see you as the "gilded guinea"!!! If for no other reason is that you expressed my own sentiments to a much much higher degree of competency!!!!! You will succeed no matter what.

                            Best fortune for whom ever will be doing this and, again, I trust all of us have taken this offer seriously enough to rework ourselves to success.

    Okay, let's see here...

    Tell me why you deserve to be coached.
    I'm not sure that I "deserve" this any more than anyone else here that is struggling to make it work in this IM game. But I will say that I've been putting in 10 hour days for the last 6 or so months and been getting almost no where. It's come down to the point where I just don't know what else to do. I'm not a quitter, I'm just running out of options.

    What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.
    I want to create my own products and mini-sites. I want to have as streamlined a process as possible to enable myself to enjoy my life and not be a slave to the computer. I don't need to be making 1M a month or anything, I just want to live comfortably, help people out, and be able to spend time with my loved ones whenever i want.

    I don't know where I need help, because I don't know what I'm doing wrong. To be honest, I'd say that my time management skills are lacking, but my drive is not. My ability to prioritize activities that will actually translate into dividends vs. doing frivolous activities is a serious problem for me as well. I would like to become more open to outsourcing, but don't have the funds (yet) to get started.

    Sell me yourself, and the best sales job will get coaching from me.
    I think I found my problem.... I'll edit this, I just need some time to think on it.

      Hi Bev

      I deserve to be coached because:

      1. I have a genuine passion in learning internet marketing
      2. I have a strong knowledge base in internet marketing from doing my own research
      3. I am ready to launch for success, ready to go
      4. I have my domain names, hosting, I know how to ftp, and build a website
      5. I respect anything you have to say on this forum and will follow your advice

      I want to:

      1. Build online businesses that are profitable, successful and that are there for the long term
      2. Build authority sites that are known for over delivering
      3. Stay on top of internet marketing and learn new things as I go along

      I need help with:

      1. Traffic Generation
      2. Website Monetization
      3. Joint Ventures
      4. Membership Sites
      5. Website Portals
      6. Community Based Websites
      7. Legal Forms For Websites
      8. And anything else you are willing to mentor me on

      I am very serious about learning and applying everything that I can from you Bev. I consider myself to be worthy of being mentored as I feel I am trustworthy, honest, and committed to success. I respect other peoples time and knowledge. Everything happens for a reason and if it is meant to be that you are to be my mentor, I could ask for no better mentor than you Bev. Thanks for the opportunity.

      Best Regards
      Barb

    I deserve to be coached because I cannot fail. Here's why.


    Short version: I started IM a month ago with the goal of paying my electric bill so that my now-just-days-from-being-born baby wouldn't have to be fed by candlelight. I've managed to get on top of my finances short-term, but my IM techniques didn't make the cut. I have an Ebook and a sales letter and some articles, but no traffic.


    Super short version: I am going to succeed with or without your help, because I have to for my baby's sake. But I want every resource available to me, and mentoring is one that is in short supply.


    I am a great writer, and I've sold everything from health insurance to the very elderly to Blockbuster memberships to college hippies. I have time, I have talent -- I just have no money and too many ideas of how to turn time and talent into money. I need a director to tell what role to play in what scene.


    I also have enough money to buy a domain name; a friend has offered me free hosting. I re-invested my first $100 into Market Samurai, and I have a little left over for some domain names.


    I have until December -- that's as far as my savings will pay for. I need to be consistently making at least 2k/month by then. My goal is 10k/month by the time my baby can say my name. I will succeed, that's not in question. The question is: will you help me?

      Ok here I go. I am here trying to learn the best that I can. In all reality I would not normally post to something like this because I feel that I for whatever reason don't deserve these types of things. So, I guess by posting this I am giving myself permission to have these types of things be in my benefit. I can not boast very well, as I was not raised that way, but I can say that my children and wife deserve way better then what I am giving them at the moment and I have made a commitment to them. I need all the help I can gather, and I am now determined more then ever to learn how to make this work the best that I can. I have been tossed around and drug through the cleaners so to speak. Anyhow I really understand that the internet is where there is an enormous opportunity to be happy, have fun, and make money in the process for some reason this eludes me. I own a domain name, actually I own 5. I also own a hosting account already. I understand how to build web pages (amateur).I understand how to move the new made page to the server and get it up and online. I know what a subdomain is, and how to make them work. I guess I am in bad shape at the moment and seem to be suffering from information overload. I know you understand this part as I am 100% sure that everyone that is even a little successful in IM had at one point or another suffered from the same problem. anyways,

      Thanks For Reading,

            ~~~> Tell me why you deserve to be coached.
            Ever since I've started on my Internet Marketing journey on 18th July 2008, I have been
            staying up till the wee hours on many, many nights studying and working. All I have been
            doing is learning and applying everything that I've learnt online. I'm glad to announce that
            I made it to number 2 for my selected keyword phrase after all that hardwork. And I'm so
            extremely happy that I just made my first affiliate sale online that I just discovered
            minutes ago that I screamed and danced around for a couple of minutes clenching my
            fists and shouting "YES! YES! I MADE A SALE! WOOOHOOO!!" - it's not a big sale,
            but it's a sale nonetheless.
            - I deserve to be coached because I'm taking this business seriously

            ~~~> What do you want to do online, and what areas do you need help.
            I simply want to make money online - that's the real, immediate goal. I started with
            Internet Marketing because I badly needed the money for my family and to clear debts.
            The areas that I need help are:
            - traffic improvement - because I understand that traffic and follow-up is the lifeblood
            of Internet Marketing;
            - how to get people to click on my AdSense ads in my blog without blatantly asking them
            to do so;
            - review and improvement on what's already been done instead of starting from scratch or
            an overhaul, unless I've made a major blunder in my work thus far

            ~~~> Sell me yourself, and the best sales job will get coaching from me.
            If you are willing to coach me, you get a person who has the drive to do his own research
            into the subject matter. So - No Headache for you to have to convince me
            "This Stuff Works!" because I already know it works. Coaching works best when the
            student is first willing to be taught - You can coach me to not just be better, but to EXCEL.


            ~~~> You will get help to draw up your business plan, and then help putting that plan into action.
            That's great!

            ~~~> Don't bother to apply if you expect to be rich overnight without doing any work.
            Done deal.

            ~~~> Don't bother to apply if you don't really want a business just a hobby.
            This is a business for me and I'm serious about it.

            ~~~> Don't bother to apply if you say, I know it all but I can't make any money.
            I don't know it all - I know quite a bit because I have been staying up till the wee hours
            for many nights to study most of the materials I come across. But there are still so much,
            so much for me to learn!

            ~~~> Don't bother to apply if you can't be told what to do especially by a woman
            My day job boss is a business woman and she tells me what to do quite regularly - so I
            ain't got no problem with that.

            ~~~> You will have access to me by email.
            That's great! Emailing's absolutely no problem for me.

            ~~~> You will need to have skype.
            I'll have to hunt down a good headset and will have to watch the bills due to the tight
            budgets that I have. I *did* start Internet Marketing to help my family and clear debts.
            It's not started as a hobby but as a real business. Honestly, e-mail might be the most
            cost efficient way for me but if you feel Skype's a necessity, I'll get it and earn it back
            from the Internet Marketing business.

            ~~~> You will need to work hard, and see your business getting off the ground.
            I'm all set and ready to go - I'm already working on my business. I'm now trying to get a
            coach to help me better my business! It's tough trying to get a good coach because this
            coach that I'm trying to get, asked a forum full of newbies who want to be mentored
            "WHO WANTS COACHING?"

            ~~~> Only serious business people need apply.
            I do hope I sound serious enough - except maybe a little bit just before this statement.

            ~~~> You might wonder what the cost is? You will need to put in lots of hard
            work, and depending on what you want to do and your skills, you might need to buy a
            domain name and hosting. Anything else you will work for.

            I already have bought a domain name and hosting. Lots of hard work has been put into
            my current domain name and hosting and there are some results. However, the results
            that I truly want have not been fully achieved yet.
