The Path of Business Integrity - [and Cash]

37 replies
Ok guys,

I know the only way to make real money online is to be real. Yes, to be genuine. And that is the lesson I've learned from Warrior forum and from Allen Says.

Shocked? Well the secret ingredient is being genuine. And that's why you and I are here at this forum. Because the founder of this forum decided to be genuine.

It's impossible to explain. But it's the only thing that truly works.

Hype works for a short while. But being real is the magic bullet.

Godspeed and riches to all Warriors.

Paul

    Not sure if this lived up to the title

    Just kidding, of course it did. I notice that all the time with the top gurus and experts. Look at Eben Pagan for example, aside from the pen name 'David DeAngelo' you can tell the guy is as real as they come. He doesn't use hype, he tells it like it is. And his business is generating 30 million a year.

    I sometimes find myself adding too much hype into my offers and what I put out there. Thankfully I'm able to notice it the next day when I go back to it and clean it up. Sometimes you have to remind yourself the people you're connecting with are real people as well, and to truly connect you have to be genuine.

      Hey Dan,

      We are on the same page. Hype makes us less real. We need to connect. That is the bottom line. We somehow need to stay real in the middle of all this powerful hype.

      Funny you should say that. The fact everyone knows his business makes 30 million a year is because he has publicized it over and over. Why? So he can then sell you his courses on how to sell information products.

      Yes, he never uses hype to sell, right? :rolleyes:

      Just like the OP didn't use hype in the title of this thread.

        tee hee. Exactly will!, great point.

        yup, you guessed it! There could be 1000 page book written on this titled

        "Hey you - Please Don't buy this book!"

        Now if you saw that sitting on the bookstore shelf, what would you be thinking!

        Never thought about it as a publicity thing. I've just heard it from so many sources that I believed it.

        Whether the number is accurate or not, you have to admit he's making bank. The dating niche is huge and he dominates it. His products include Get Altitude, Sexual Communication, 77 Laws of Success with Women and Dating, Guru Mastermind Course, Man Transformation, Cocky Comedy, Wake Up Productive, Guru Blueprint, Double Your Dating, On Being a Man, Power Sexuality, Deep Inner Game...the list goes on.

        Personally I like his products and if you ever watched some of his DVD's you'd agree that he's a straight up guy. He delivers on his promises, so I wouldn't call it hype.

        His numbers have been verified. I'm not going to waste my time looking up the data, but unlike with most other "guru's" there are public records about his business revenue and year on year growth which was nearly 50% a year from 2001-2010.

    Being genuine is a good point, but how about the other 99% of making $1000 a day.

    Hard work

    hard work

    oh.... and more hard work.

    We have done better than $1000 days, but if you aint got the bawwls to get in there and get your hands dirty and use some good old fashion elbow grease, then you will not make much money at all.

    But you do make a good point! I would aim for $50 days first, then $100 days, and then upscale and outsource when you know what works.

    Being geniune is only a small piece of the cake, but its true alot of people can smell BS a mile away these days. Especailly with more people losing their job, and now looking to work online.

      Hard work is absolutely essential. But, in most cases, the missing ingredient is genuiness.

    Thank you for sharing this post. It's very true that we all want an honest person to share with us the real way to make money online with no hype or hard selling. Someone who genuinely wants to help you and watch you succeed is the best thing to find in internet marketing and that's you make people become repeat customers. When my coach constantly kept helping me no matter what my question was, he may not have known it but I was ready to buy anything from him at that moment. This is the secret to making real money online... genuinely helping people reach their goals...

      You know, that's a really good point. Things happen sometimes by a hidden process. Almost like a synergy. Hmm, business is sometimes mysterious.

    I think you've covered a fairly small percent of the equation here... I know quite a few CPA top dogs making MILLIONS a year who are anything but genuine in their business practices.

    To make $1000 a day in this business you simply need to outsource whatever is making you a 100 a day on your own.

    Agreed. These threads are everywhere. Blah blah do this easy step make lots of money a day blah blah.

    People fail to mention a few things:

    a) It takes effort
    b) You can't be lazy
    c) Smart people will always be successful
    d) Posts giving you tips on how to make hordes of cash easily are almost surely full of crap

    The key is to be genuine, sure, while at the same time telling people what they want to hear. To weave falsehood and truth elegantly.

    This is the trick of charismatic politicians and people in business, and it's important to know if you're selling anything.

    We know the diet that is billed as a piece of cake sells better than the diet that admits to being difficult to keep. The right "lie" is incredibly powerful, even necessary.

    That being said, the best sales people, while at the same time telling people what they want to hear, also manage to interact on a deeper, more genuine level.

    In other words, lying and telling the truth are both powerful weapons. Be like a novelist, who makes things up when it's convenient and borrows from real life when it is useful.

      Hmm, this gets into a pretty big can of worms that I don't want to open right now. ;-)

      BUT my experience has been that the absolute best marketers offer real solutions with sizzle added. In other words, motivate people by telling them all the positive and happy benefits that they will get if they follow through.

      And then they back up all that sizzle with an effective and actionable plan.

    As a newbie I look at all these WSO's almost screaming at you and I am put off by these extravagant claims. They all promise the world and I get suspicious of those. Would much rather have someone say you could make a few dollars with this if you do the work.

      Your point is well-taken Diana. Most people get into IM initially to make extra money... not a fortune. $10 per day in real profit can be a lot more meaningful to someone's monthly budget than the promise of $1,000 per day. $50 per day can be life-changing to most folks.

    Just trust your common sense. If something sounds too good to be true it USUALLY is. Making money is work, motivation..and most things which *really* make money are indeed solid and genuine. It's not magic

      I never said his numbers were fake.

      Hype doesn't have to mean what you are saying is untrue. To me when he uses all these big numbers and takes you on video tours around his 2 apartments, that is no different to the guys who put the photos of Porsches and big houses on their sales pages. It's all hype at the end of the day and it is all being used to sell their products.

      Yes, he might do it in a more down to earth, guy next door fashion, but the truth is the only reason you all know these figures is because he has told you - and he has told you to help establish his authority and credibility - and eventually sell you his digital product creation courses.

    Being sincere certainly helps however I think that is only part of the picture when it comes to connecting with others. You must also understand the basic principles and understanding of human nature, for example have you noticed that the harder you try to push, the more restistance you get? When you focus on what YOU want people will resist, that's just how people are - they resist pressure. But one thing people rarely resist is someone trying to meet THIER needs. Whenever you meet someones needs a bond is usually made and natural desire to reciprocate is created - this is powerful stuff if understood and applied in the right way. I don't want to go off thread here but most people will agree successful marketers understand this principle and apply it in their marketing with great effect to earn money, which of course (and they wont usually admit it) is their whole aim in providing the solutions in the first place..

      Really well said. We need to focus on the client better than the client focuses on himself. Something like a business 'purity'.

      Yep, I think people's radars are finely tuned to detect falseness these days. Probably because they've survived wave after wave of spam, etc. The genuine approach is not expected.
