Student Break Through- The "Other" Offline Marketing - Soo Happy!

17 replies
One of my export students got their first $15,000 commission check today via wire transfer!

You have no idea how great that feels.

I was always a warrior... but when you start seeing stuff like this happen it really makes you feel like one of the guys you used to look up to... they were my hero's navigating me through the ropes, and now I get to do that for others and be like them. Its amazing!

Hold your vision people!

Today you look up to different warriors... but if you pay attention tomorrow you will "BE" one!

A Great Warrior, fighting for peoples financial independence and personal empowerment, thats what I wanna be when I grow up!

I am sharing my offline success story here... the 'OTHER" offline marketing. So I think the offline forum is the place to share that!

Guys today this feels like a major victory to me.

    John,

    Congratulations!! It sure must feel exhilirating beyond belief! I'm following your other thread on simple website marketing and I tell you, you are lighting the WF on fire!

    I think smart IM'rs are beginning to see that if they focus on what they are going to do "now" for the "future", as opposed to moping around feeling sorry for themselves in the "present," they will get more done in less time!

    John, keep up the ideas and motivation. It inspires me.

    Regards,

    Bruce

    Great to hear some success stories like that....and great to hear that its made your day....or probably even your week!
    I bet he had to work hard for it....but for $15k it was probably more than worth it!

    Keep up the good work and keep the stories coming!

    Honestly I think he worked about 6-8 hours per week on it for 90 days... probably more like 6.


    EDIT: Just got official testimonial, he says he only worked 60 days for 3-4 hours per week.

    Its the pipeline building process that kills people in both international trade and also in offline marketing. It took 90 days to create his first big sale, but it averaged out to about $5,000 per month for about 6-8 hours of work per week... and also yielded a repeat customer thats probably worth $30k in commissions per year in the future.

    It takes a matter of months to build up a few of those kind of fish usually. My "Offline" students can get sales in a matter of days or weeks... but international trade is a bit more involved and the clients are bigger, so sometimes it takes awhile for things to start popping.

    I call it The "Other" Offline marketing.

    But yes, most people give up before their pipeline is thoroughly stuffed.

    Success is THERE for everyone, but its NOT for the faint of heart or those who dont love their goals enough to be long suffering.

    Just got official testimonial, he says he only worked 60 days for 3-4 hours per week.

    So thats about 24 work hours for $15,300!!!

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! HOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

      First off, awesome!

      Secondly, does 60 days count as long suffering? I mean, that isn't bad at all. Maybe I'm in the wrong business. I've spent longer building relationships with newspaper editors just so my press releases get picked up more regularly.

      Brokered 2 40 foot truckload loads of manufacturers liquidation product online, to an overseas customer.

      A: Find a manufacturer with liquidation overstock
      B: Hook them up with a secondary market stocklot buyer usually from another country, via internet.

      Short answer: "Exports".

    Congratulations John!

    What a nice deal!

    I love the fact that you're saying you want to help others, that's a great attitude.

    Don't forget - you already have - you helped those two parties connect at a reasonable (to them) price - so you already ARE helping!

    Congrats on tasting that success.

    Congratulations John and to your student.

    It is exciting when you see somebody doing well - especially if you have had a hand in helping them achieve the success.

    Last month one of the warriors who bought my report had similar success and received an order for $25,000. I couldn't have been more excited for her.

    Your post was inspirational because you are right....anybody with a bit of hard work and determination can achieve success.

    Well done again to both of you

    Regards

    Gary

      Awesome news!

      I guess one reason I have enjoyed running call centers is the part about training young people to succeed, as someone trained me once, and set me free.

      There is no job more satisfying than seeing someones lightbulb come on and watching something PHENOMENAL happen to them, and feel like you were a part of that turning point for them. I will never forget the men who inspired me in my lifetime and speak of them often.

      I was inspired by them so much, and they made such a difference in my life that I have come to feel our highest calling is to inspire.
