So, I did OK, for a couple of months. I learned a lot about internet marketing but my focus was more on my own business and it didn’t appeal to me enough to dig into it 110%.
Then, one morning it hit me. I was still focusing on my first business and I was still feeling rundown, tired and very confused.
Sure I was shooting cash into my account better than before but I still haven't achieved the time freedom that I so desperately desired.
I found myself seeking mentors and coaches outside of the business opportunity for advice and to teach me what I was missing as I wasn't making very many sales.
I started implementing what I had learned into my new business.
I jacked up my ad spend. I developed some email templates and started emailing my list daily, pitching in every email and it gave me much better results.
And I did OK. I increased my conversions a few extra percentage points.
But I was still not getting the results that would get me to complete financial freedom.
I just wanted answers to why it wasn't working.
Surely it was the offer,
the traffic guy or
my partially completed website that was holding me down and not providing me with sales.
I was getting frustrated as I was spending more than what was coming in.
After a solid 12 months I only made US$200 in commission and spent tens of thousands of dollars in paid advertising...
What was I doing wrong?
The truth is... I wasn't happy with the business opportunity.
- It was overly priced (Even for the basic packages),
- The training was poor and outdated,
- Prospects found it difficult to understand the packages and...
- The top tier members didn't even know the basics of internet marketing. (shocking!)
The whole business opportunity felt like a dead arm. It just took me a long time to realize that by holding on and not breaking away - It's killing me!
Then I found I wasn't alone! Others have WOKEN UP to these business opportunities that take advantage of their affiliates... I had to step away to get some true clarity.
You don't know how far involved you are until you try and get out of your contract and how desperate they become to keep you with them.
Then I came across my friend on Facebook that was smashing $1000 dollar days and I was stilling back in complete awe... how is he doing this?
Better still... He wasn't even spending a dime on paid advertising!
And.. that my friends is how my break through first began.
You See... I thought that I had all of these problems when really it only required one simple little tweak.
