I started my Offline Marketing Business way back when this forum didnt even have a section for Offline Marketers. As a matter of fact.... Almost every thread that was started on the topic of Offline Marketing was either deleted or closed because old school IM'ers didnt like where alot of us were heading with Offline Marketing.
Im sure alot of you old school Offline Marketers remember those days. That was when Dexx (fellow warrior) had to start a new forum (Offline Gold Forum) just so we could talk about the subject without being flamed and shut down.. lol.
So why am I telling you all this?
Because I want to let you know that I have been around for awhile and also that this is still a brand new industry and you should be juiced to be a part of this business while its still in its Toddler stage.
So im sure by now you want me to just shut up and give you the magic bullet, magic pill, or the special coolaid so you can hurry up and make your riches in the next 72 hours like I did
Here is the deal....
Their is no real magic bullet, pill, or whatever you want to call it!
It takes work, energy, creativity, commitment and much more!
But im not going to leave you all hanging...
Here is what I did when I first started my Offline Marketing Business.
I first bought up pretty much every single WSO I could get my hands on the topic of Offline Marketing. But I didnt buy just anyone's. I made sure it was only from those that walked the walk. Those that ate their own cooking.
How can you tell if they eat their own cooking?
Easy... Their are a few ways you can tell.
1. Usually (not always) they have a decent post count (over 500-1,000) and not only post, but they contribute free tips and advice without asking for anything in return. They have other Warriors respect. Not everyone's, but alot of peoples respect.
2. They have good reviews for the products that they put out.
3. They usually have a good amount of Thanks next to their name. This means that others found enough value in what they offered and pressed the thanks button in the posts they made.
Back when I first started their weren't even close to the amount of WSO's on the topic of Offline Marketing. So you are pretty damned lucky that you have more to choose from and alot of us have already went through the trials and errors and will steer you clear from them.
The next thing I did...
I printed out all the (WSO's) materials I bought. Don't just leave them on your hard drive. Print them out! That way you can make notes on them, you can highlight them and put stickies on them when you need to go back and read something. If you dont have ink in your printer, then put them on a thumb-drive and take it to your local printer and have them printed out.
Next Thing I did....
I stopped buying any new WSO's, I took a break from the forums, and I studied all the WSO's that I bought. I didnt look at any new offers or even think about going online until I went through what I already had.
Did I use all the strategies and ideas from the WSO's I had bought in my business?
NO.... Does that mean that I asked for a refund if I didnt use that strategy? NO...
I see too many people jumping from one offer to the next, looking for that magic bullet. They complain publicly that they tried this or that and it didnt work and they dont think it will since they spent at least 5 to 20 minutes on it. Im sorry to tell you... actually im not... I am HAPPY to tell you that if you plan on getting any results with minimal effort. Then you are in the wrong business. This business will take work and commitment. Especially in the beginning as you build it.
I figured if I just got at least one idea that I could use now or in the future then it was well worth the $50-$200+ I spent on each WSO. Now alot of you are looking at that last sentence and probably thinking to yourself "50 to 200 bucks?" "I only paid 5 bucks for my last WSO I bought?"
Thats right... We didnt have the luxury and weren't spoiled with $5-$17 products. Most of them worth any value were between $50-$200 or more. So stop whining!
Im not trying to be harsh... Im not trying to make friends here, im trying to make a difference.
If you get at least 1 idea or strategy that you can use in your business, then why the hell would you ask for a refund? This is your education we are talking about. These are the building blocks to your business. Invest in it and take action on it.
After I went over every single one of the WSO's that I bought and chose 1-3 different services I want to offer. These were services that were in demand but most of all they were things that interested me.
After I chose the services, I then took massive action on everything that I had learned.
One of the most important lessons I can pass on to you is this... If you truly want to be successful in this business. You will need to take a break from the forums so you can build it. At least until you get the ball rolling and bring in your first few clients. After you get a few clients, you can schedule a few times a week when you are allowed to come in here and get new ideas or offer support to others.
The last 2 points I made are the most important ones. So let me repeat them one more time.
1. Take Massive Action on everything you learned
2. Stay off the forums until you build your business
This is how I did it in not only my Offline Marketing business, but in many other successful businesses and projects I have done in the past.
And Yes... This made me way more than $10,457 in the first 72 hours that I officially launched my Offline Marketing Business!
Be a RockStar in Your Business,
and In Your Life!
