Hey Guys - you probably all got an email from me today. I have a funny story to share about this ad. One of my clients I spoke with tonight because my nifty GetResponse email software tells me when someone opens their mail - so I called them up and they said,
"I didn't know it was from you.... it looked like an AD so I ignored it."
"So what do you want me to do with it?"
Right then - my cell phone ran out of batteries and I thought
"Duh.... how about click the Add to Cart button" and buy it - its a fantastic deal.
At that moment I realized the folly of the situation and the hidden lesson here.
Entrepreneurs like me read ads and if I like how the ad is written, I buy the product.
I've been buying a lot of stuff lately... all because I appreciated the creativity and thought that went into the advertising and special promotions.
Today I bought software that updates my drivers on my computers automatically with a 40% savings (plus I can install it on 3 computers), and I also bought anti-malware software that makes sure my browsers don't get infected with junk. Did I need it ? No... but their ads were persuasive - their offer was solid and it was a great deal PLUS it had utility.
It all started this morning when some Indian (not Deepak) called our office and tried to bamboozle me into buying his Anti-Virus software. I saw thru his 'scam' and realized... hmmm. We do have some vulnerabilities and performance issues on some of the computers... so instead I'll act on some of these 'Cyber Monday' deals I have in my InBOX.
Chances are you haven't really set up your blog properly or it is
one of those things you've been putting off. Guess what? Stop procrastinating...hire a pro.
Most of you are not going to blog daily if you don't like how your blog looks - you just won't I know this because I log in MULTIPLE times per day to see what you are all blogging about - and less than 5% of you are blogging daily.... shame on you! (seriously - let's get your blog set up!)
Back to my story...
That (simply buying something because its a fair price and a good sales offer) IS my 'set point' as Deepak would say.
It just doesn't make any sense to me why someone who is in business to become an Entrepreneur wouldn't buy the products from other Entrepreneurs if it was a good offer and made sense. I tend to buy everything from a company once I see that I can benefit from it. That's just me. I've bought all the Empower Network products, been to 5 events already, got my tickets to the next event in Florida - and I'm cash-flow positive. Are you?
That's when I realized how much I've changed since I got into Empower Network. Its not that I've been 'brain-washed' (although Dave likes to use that phrase as a positive thing) - I really have.... The garbage from my brain has been washed away so I can see an Ad and see it as something positive - something I can learn from and something that someone wants me to consider BUYING.
The obvious thing is this. I sent the ad because I wanted to "follow the joneses" about Cyber Monday sales by giving people a 50% discount on my company's setup fee to do all the things that nobody (including us) wants to do to make their blogs look great. But it has to be done, so we charge a fair price for it. $599. We were charging that same setup fee for the past 3 years - WAY before I even got involved in Empower.
I found out today one of my other clients was sold a damn ugly 'mobile website' for $1000 - and it doesn't work or look 10% as good as ours.
The point is as you go through the Inner Circle audios, going to Empower Events, hanging out with leaders and and listening to people that are making five and six figure MONTHLY incomes purely from Internet Marketing you realize that a lot of it is your 'set point' - you set your goal to higher level and the rest of your world will accommodate.
Anyway - I sent you all who are customers already an email - I'm putting this up as a blog post as well so you can all read it in your backoffice when you log in to write your blog (and reblog it if you like)
Tomorrow I'm sending it out to our big customer list. So we may be booked thru the holidays with blog setups.
Here's the Cyber Monday Ad we created today - grab it before the clock runs out.
Please note: you can reblog this - this deal is good for anyone in Empower Network regardless of WHOSE team you're on. Its work. It's a set-up. You'll get everything that the video shows:
a) A custom header, sidebar and footer
b) Hooking it to your domain name www.yourdomainname.com
c) Linking it to your Getresponse and Capture page
The biggest complaint I get from people is they don't know how to actually get their blogs set up. Well you have two choices - you can either do it yourself (the link in my sales page shows you how) - or you can hire a professional to do it for you.
So once again here's the Cyber Monday Ad we created today CLICK HERE and grab it before the clock runs out.
Oh and if you're already not in Empower - click the banner at the bottom of this page and get in TODAY. You can get your blog setup with the person whose blog this post is on and because they're on my team they'll also be able to offer you our 50% discount on the setup fee. Cheers!
p.s. You can simply reblog this and say - this is my sponsor Vik and I want you on my team, our team. I'll look for your comments as well and update this post accordingly.... Take action now!
