Only two days to go till I fly out to New Orleans for my third Internet marketers cruise.
It’s pretty amazing going on a cruise with 400 Internet marketers!!
This year I am taking Catherine and Sue with me on the cruise. (and Dave of course!)
The cruise is a great time to kick back and relax but I’m also going to be doing some work.
This time I have set myself a clear objective to connect with as many people as possible.
Because I’m obsessed with tracking everything in my business I know that my best customers are the people I’ve actually met face-to-face.
So my big task this year will be chatting to as many people as possible, helping as many people as possible, getting them to sign up to my list, and following up with them afterwards.
I’ve done this in the past at Internet marketing meet-ups and seminars and found this to be one of the best strategies to build an email list with quality customers.
Okay so the numbers aren’t large – I might only get 100 people to sign up to my list – but that’s 100 new relationships with customers that will probably purchase big ticket items from me over the next 12 months.
So the process will be as follows:
Approach as many people and engage in conversation.
Try to help as many people out with their business.
Offer something really cool and relevant in return for their contact details.
Follow up on the phone after the cruise to maintain a relationship.
The other thing I will be doing on the cruise this year is recording an audio interview series with successful Internet marketers.
I’ve purchased an MP3 recorder and once I am on the plane flying to New Orleans on Friday I will put together a short questionnaire. I think I’m going to focus the interviews on one particular subject – possibly traffic generation.
A lot of people go to Internet marketing events and it becomes one big lost opportunity. This is because they don’t have a clear objective before they attend the event.
Whenever attending any kind of marketing event you should always have a clear objective of exactly what you want to achieve.
I guess I had better start packing now as my office is starting to look a bit like a bomb site thanks to all the deliveries from Vista print and the T-shirt company that has printed the Sarah Staar business school T-shirts!!
Dave has been helping me out with tightening up the branding of the company, and anyone on the cruise will definitely recognise the team..
I nearly crashed the Tesla when I heard this
A few months ago I hired a Tesla and toured the UK, visiting various online marketing experts along the way.
I took them for a drive in this gorgeous beast of a car and recorded an interview with them using 2 video cameras.
One of the highlights was my interview with Chris Payne who I drove to one of his high-paying clients for a meeting: I felt like an Uber driver! 🙂
It wasn’t easy asking questions, listening to his answers, and driving in an area I didn’t know!
One of the answers Chris shared with me blew me away so much that I became light headed.
It felt like my whole brain was rewiring itself as a result of Chris’ profound insight.
Thankfully the Tesla has a brilliant self-drive mode so I didn’t crash!
Chris has generated millions of dollars in revenue over the years, and he’s one of the very few go-to people I pay to get advice to grow my business.
He knows a ton about making money with Amazon, so I’ve asked him to come on a webinar TOMORROW and share with you some very clever tricks and shortcuts to help you get amazing free, targeted traffic – and make money using outsourcers at super-low prices to make maximum money in minimum time.
You’ll hear Chris, or me, share the insight which made my head spin, plus loads more.

See on tomorrow on the live class!
Take Action Now -don’t put things off !!
Sometimes I could kick myself for not taking action. For instance, back in 2010 I remember looking at Bitcoin and thinking that is something I should look at.
Unfortunately, I never bought any!
If I’d spent $100 on bit coins back in 2010 they would be worth over $600,000 now!
Which made me think…If I had started building my email list a year earlier I’d probably be making an extra $5000 a month now….
In today’s age of social media text messages and endless emails, it’s very easy to become overwhelmed.
My advice… Write down a clear objective or an outcome which you desire..
-A new car
-A new house
-Maybe a lifestyle change
NOW – Create a vision board, This is a large sheet of paper with your goal written down on it. This must include photos and images….
Do it NOW !!
