What you learn in the next few minutes will make a massive difference in your online marketing experience.
Let me introduce myself.
My name is James Brown.
Like many of you, I have been dabbling with this online thing for a long time.
After I left the military (after serving for 15 years) in 1992, I knew I did not want to work for anyone else again.
Since I was a smart dude (at least that’s what the military thought) working with some of the most advanced military electronic equipment designed to safeguard our country's encrypted messages, I should be smart enough to figure out how to work for myself.
I even did the installation and removal of Periscopes and Antenna Arrays for submarines on the East Coast of the U.S.
I wrote the first work package for installing the first Naval GPS system on Submarines.
It has been estimated that over 12 years, the military invested more than $600 thousand dollars in my military education.
Do you think any of that translated to “work for yourself”?
The answer is a huge NO!
I failed miserably and had to get a job doing something. I had no idea what it was nor how to do it.
I became a Truss Designer.
Not many people know what that is.
There are no schools to train to be a Truss Designer.
You learn on the job.
Truss designers design the Roof & Floor Systems for Homes and Commercial Properties. They translate the Architectural & Structural plans into the structural components that become Homes and Businesses.
It is a great occupation. Pays quite well.
But it does not afford anyone the FREEDOM I was still craving.
I still wanted to be my boss.
I am pretty sure many other people want to free themselves from the everyday grind of answering “to the MAN.” (or “to the WOMAN,” depending on the circumstances J)
I know you would not be here, reading any of this, if one of two things were not true …
1) You are new to Online Marketing and want to create a different lifestyle for yourself and/or your family.
2) You have been marketing online for some time but are just not getting the results you think you should.
I get it.
If you are brand-spanking new to online marketing, you may feel confused about what to do first.
You want to start making money as quickly as you can.
Hey, don’t we all … 😉
But the more you study marketing online, the more confusing the information your receiving is becoming.
You are not alone!
If you throw a dart at a bunch of internet marketers, you will always hit someone with a differing opinion.
It would be OK … if the opinions would just come with a game plan … that works … For You!
As you start building your business online, you will notice that there are many more things for you to do than what you thought was a part of the deal.
You just wanted to sell this widget or that service, but you are finding out that you probably will need to …
The list keeps getting bigger and bigger.
Does any of that sound familiar to you?
If it does not yet … it will soon enough.
Trust me on that!
It does not take very long before information overload takes over. And this is when you start to get overwhelmed with the enormousness of it all.
So, what would any average person do in these circumstances?
Maybe go to Google and ask it to solve your problems.
“How do I write promotional emails?”
You get 160 million results in less than 3/4 second.
Hey Google, what do you know about “Landing Page Design”?
“How to do email marketing.”
Over 2.6 million results to choose from in less than one second.
Those are a lot of opinions.
Don’t you agree?
Why do so many online marketers throw in the towel and give up?
You have this great idea of how to save the environment or how to self-generate the power to charge batteries in an electric car …
… but until you figure out HOW to market online … CORRECTLY … you might as well be shouting how to do it in the middle of times square.
No one is going to listen to you there, either.
I mean it.
No one is listening.
About now, you may be getting the idea that marketing online to sell a product, a course, a service, or your next great idea is nearly impossible.
At least, that may be how you feel.
If you’re like me, right now, you are nodding like one of those 1960s bobbing head dogs.
Then we agree.
And the bad thing is that this would be funny if it were not so serious.
People are giving up on their dreams … for lack of knowledge.
Here we are (at least I am) in America, where we always hear that we can have the “American Dream.” First, it was the promise that we could own our own home … and NOW … we hope to be our BOSS!
Right now, it is March 2021.
We have dealt with the Corona Virus (Covid-19) for over a year.
As of yesterday, the death toll in the U.S. is over 550K. We are still averaging nearly 1,000 deaths per day.
Restaurants, Gyms, and other mom & pop businesses struggle to pay their bills.
Businesses have been laying people off like water hoses; no one knows how to turn them off.
Pew Research in June 2020 had this to say.
People are hurting …
… Really, really bad!
25–34 year-olds 13.1% … up from 4%
35–44 year-olds 9.8% … up from 3%
45–54 year-olds 10.4% … up from 2.8%
55+ 11.5%, up from 2.8%
The worse hit was the 16–24 year-olds with 23.5% unemployment in May 2020. Up from 8%.
And how about now!
Look at the latest numbers for Feb 2021.
It gets even worse.
So, my friends … why am I showing you this?
What does the Corona Virus have to do with marketing online?
Simply this …
The more we start thinking that we may be out of the woods with this virus, the sooner we find that we have let down our safeguards, and soon there is another spike, infecting even more, killing more.
New variants have the CDC worried.
If you still have a job, be thankful.
There are a lot of people that would like to be where you are right now.
I can still remember losing my job in October 2007.
Remember the other “Great Recession.”
Do you remember how bad that was?
I was so close to becoming homeless.
I exhausted my savings …
I liquidated my 401K …
I got down on my knees and prayed …
My prayer was answered. Thankfully.
I was lucky.
I was one of a few lucky ones.
Maybe you were too! I hope so.
If you think back to 2008 - 2010, you will have your own memories. You experienced that period in your life, and it had an impact.
I know it did for me.
So, when this Corona Virus first hit … we were told by Trump that it was not that serious and that in America, we could take care of it in no time.
Then days went by.
The days turned into weeks.
The weeks turned into months.
And at last count, we may not see “Normal” until 2022.
So, what are people supposed to do if they lose their job?
If companies are laying off, and very few are hiring, what should the normal person do?
I believe… that RIGHT NOW … is the best time for anyone with the ability, and the financial means, to begin LEARNING how to market online successfully.
If you can develop a successful online business, even one earning just $300 or $500 extra each month, you can use that money to start paying down debt and free yourself from the crippling effect that huge credit card debt has on countless others.
You can take that successful online business, and with the proper knowledge and training, you can turn that $300 - $500 a month into $1000, $2000, $3000, or more monthly income.
Everyone always says they want $5K or $10K monthly to feel successful.
But I am right now talking to you, not everyone else.
What do you need?
If you were to lose your job today, would you still have a source of income coming in tomorrow? (that is a profoundly serious question)
Do you have enough savings to cover at least six months of living expenses?
Assuming you were the sole breadwinner in your household …
… how much money would you need from an online business to replace your income?
Suppose you are right now earning only $15 per hour. By the way, that is what President Biden wants the minimum wage to be in a few years.
At $15 per hour for 40 hours, your income is $600 per week or $31,200 per year.
If you wanted your after-tax income to be $600 a week, you would need to earn $800 per week or $41,600 a year, assuming 25% taxes.
That would be close to $3,466.66 per month before taxes.
Could you do that online?
The answer is YES!
YES, you can!
But will you?
Will you buckle down and do the hard work of LEARNING how to market online?
To be honest … not many people … do the hard work needed to become successful. It is just the way some people are.
I do not understand it.
But I have a good feeling right now.
You have been with me this far, and I believe you are interested enough to know more.
If I am right, and I think I am … 😉
Then I would love for you to take this to the next level.
You have been reading for quite a long time.
I cannot expect you to read for much longer.
There are limits (something you will learn as a trained marketer).
I was thinking.
What could I do that would still provide you with more information?
How could I expand your knowledge without asking you to read even further, HERE, on this page?
This is what I came up with.
Let me know if this is OK with you!
Down below here, you will see that there is a form.
It just asks for your Name and Email Address.
I would like you to fill out the form with your best email address. You know the one. The one you share with your friends. The one you check every day, maybe multiple times per day.
Are you still with me?
Please do not use a fake email like many others do when they want a pdf or something else those other marketers out there are peddling.
We are friends, remember?
I want to ensure the information I will send you gets to the right person.
Is this agreeable with you?
No money is changing hands. No fine print.
I am just interested in helping you learn how to become a successful marketer in 2021.
Neither one of us knows what the future holds.
I hope we will all see more and more people getting re-hired and the Corona Virus disappear off the radar.
But I think you would agree that neither of us is a mind reader nor a prophet.
So, the best way to protect yourself and your family (if you have one) is to protect your finances.
How do you do that?
You NEED an independent source of income.
We all do.
It is how the RICH gets RICH …
And it is how they stay that way.
So, fill out the form below.
Give me your best email address, and then confirm it.
You will be glad you did.
Thank you for taking this time out of your busy schedule to join me.
I hope you take advantage of this opportunity and learn how to work from home (eventually from coffee shops) and maybe one day on the road as you travel and enjoy your newfound freedom as your BOSS!
