Becoming a successful Internet marketer has changed my life it’s giving me the freedom to travel and never have to worry about money again.
However one negative thing that can happen is that you can lose touch with what is happening in the industry. This is because it’s very easy to focus 100 percent just on your own business and start ignoring what everybody else is doing.
So I always try to go to as many Internet marketing seminars and workshops as I can just keep my toe in the water.
Today I’m at a one day Workshop in London in London hosted by Armand Morin. This is a workshop mainly for beginners but I’m still learning stuff.
I bumped into an old friend of mine and we had lunch together and we discussed a traffic method which I think is so cool.
As some of you know one of my most powerful traffic methods is my business card. I have my contact details on one side of the card and free offer, my squeeze page, on the reverse side of my card.
Whenever I go out to live seminars, workshops or meetups I make a point of trying to meet as many people as possible and also give them my business card.
Here’s the weird thing. 60% of my top clients, the ones that have spent over $20,000 with me first came into contact with me because of one of those business cards.
Ben who had lunch with me today was telling me about a two-day Workshop which is putting on in Central London. He wants to sell 100 tickets to his workshop and we were discussing different traffic methods he could use.
However the one that really stood out was network marketing. Ben is going to as many Internet marketing seminars, workshops and meet-ups as possible.
At these events he’s trying to meet as many people as possible and collecting business cards. He is planning to follow up with these people later personally on the phone.
Now because Ben is actually meeting these people face to face he is probably going to get very high conversion rates.
If he’s got their business card he can phone them up, send them emails and even send them text messages.
Oh yeah and he could also do a Facebook marketing campaign just those people.
Sometimes low tech outside the box traffic techniques are the best and I’ve no doubt that he’ll get 100 people to his workshop simply by using old fashioned face to face marketing.
This was exactly the same strategy I used when I first built my email list and it turns out that these contacts are my best customers.
Face to face marketing was one of the traffic methods I discussed on my webinar on Thursday If you’d like to see a replay click on the link below.
This replay will be taken down at the end if this weekend!
gotta go now as the afternoon coffee break is almost over,
all the best,
