New Membership Bonus For You

Monday, August 27th, 2012

As you know, I’ve been in Joe Polish’s 25K Mastermind Group since 2008.

Joe actually calls this group the Genius Network Mastermind, but the members affectionately refer to it as the 25K Group because the investment to be in the group is $25,000.00 a year.

Being in this group has allowed me to meet, rub shoulders with and become close friends with some of the most brilliant marketing minds and business owners in the world.

I certainly don’t tell you this to brag or boast.

You know me better than that.

Instead, I share this with you to set the stage for what I’m about to give you.

Joe hosted a recent 25K Group at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square, right in the heart of New York City.

This event was especially unique for two reasons.

1. Steve Forbes and Arianna Huffington joined us for the meeting (that’s me with Arianna in the photo above). The people now becoming associated with this group is nothing short of amazing.

2. Joe used a new format that he called “10 Minute Talks” for this meeting, and that’s what led to the thing I’m about to give you.

There were about 40 members of the group who did these “10 Minute Talks”, with the whole purpose being… to share the #1 most valuable idea or concept from your business… that would be worth a minimum of $250,000.00 to everyone in the group.

What made these talks so great is that each presenter had to get crystal clear on what they were going to share, get right to the point, and deliver incredible value in just 10 minutes.

Once the two-day event was over, and I’d sat through about 40 of these “10 Minute Talks”, I was completely blown away.

I was also reminded of the fact that I’m close personal friends with some of the most brilliant and successful business owners and marketers in the world.

Before the meeting ended, I spoke with many of the other members, and I asked one question of them.

“Would you be willing to share your knowledge with my subscribers”?

Every one of them said, “Absolutely, I’d love to do that Kevin”!

Now here’s where YOU come in.

As you know, I’m all about providing massive value to you.

If this is something you’d be interested in, I need to hear from you.

It’s obviously going to take a considerable amount of work on my part to start putting this all together so I can make these kinds of introductions for you.

But I’m not going to go to the effort if it’s not something you want.

So let me know right now by posting your comments below…

Do you want me to start personally introducing you to the world’s most successful business owners and marketers so you can meet them yourself and start interacting with them… just like I do?

I’m thinking this would be a huge added benefit for you, and quite honestly, I don’t know anyone else who’d be able (or willing) to introduce you to this caliber of people.

I know it sure would make me feel great, knowing that I could be the guy who makes these kind of incredible connections for you.

But like I said, it’s up to you.

If this is something you want, let me know by posting your comments below.

If there’s enough response, I’ll start moving forward with this right away and make the first introduction for you.

Double Your Web Traffic

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of Perry Marshall.

Anyone who follows this blog would know that because I rave about him on a regular basis.

And if you’re a client, you also know that Perry is a guest contributor for the monthly newsletter I send out, and has been since I produced the first edition back in October of 2004.

There’s also that banner in the upper right-hand corner of the blog, offering you Perry’s AdWords Cheatsheet for free.

I’ve been an avid follower, subscriber and student of Perry’s since I first met him. He’s one of an extremely small handful of people, who when I receive his emails, I immediately open it to see what he has to say, because yes, it’s always that valuable.

While I’m at this, let me give you a little hint.

If you click the link on this blog and request Perry’s AdWords Cheatsheet, you’ll start receiving the same valuable emails from him.

The fact is, if you’re interested in using Google AdWords to grow your business, there’s no one better to help you make it happen.

I’ve known Perry since 1999, and I was the very first person to invest in the original edition of the Ultimate Guide To Google AdWords back in 2003 (when he offered it at a live seminar I attended in Tampa, Florida).

Since that time I’ve used the strategies he outlines to successfully drive thousands and thousands of visitors to my websites, converting them into interested prospects, as well as buyers of my products and services.

When it comes to navigating the world of Google AdWords, Perry Marshall is the “go to man”.

He’s made this subject his life’s work and there’s no one else I trust more when it comes to successfully using Google AdWords.

After reviewing the 3rd edition of his Ultimate Guide to Google AdWords, I had to take a moment to share my thoughts.

If you’ve never seen the first two editions, and you’re curious about the Google AdWords program, this is a must read.

If you’ve read the previous editions, and are successfully using what you discovered, this newest edition will help you take things up a notch.

In this 3rd edition, Perry shows us the dark side of Google and helps us understand what’s going on behind all the “Google slaps”, why they’re shutting websites down, and what you can do about it.

I really appreciated the 16th chapter of the book, which Perry titled, The Butt-Ugly Truth About social Media, and the Beautiful Untold Story.

Finally!

Someone speaks openly, candidly and frankly about this subject.

While many people claim you can make boatloads of money with social media, only a very small handful of people are actually doing it.

And they’re making TONS of money.

Perry shows you who they are… and how they’re doing it.

But I have to say, while the entire book is filled with valuable information, the last chapter was my favorite because it really struck a personal chord.

I won’t ruin the surprise for you by giving away the end of the book.

You’ll have to get it for yourself.

I’ll simply leave you with this…

Perry is one of those guys who’s continually focused on delivering value to the people he serves, and in this latest book, he completely over delivers.

Be sure to get it because you won’t be disappointed.

And…

If you’ve already studied Perry’s material, be sure to let me know by posting your comments below.

As you know, I’m a HUGE fan, and would love to hear from you if you feel the same way.

Let’s show Perry some love, because he certainly deserves it.

Dedicated to your success,

P.S. Just in case you’re wondering… no, I don’t get compensated in any way if you decide to pick up a copy of Perry’s latest book. This is just me doing my part to spread the word about a resource I know will help you.

Want Bragging Rights?

Monday, August 20th, 2012

My friend Steve Sims is a stunning example of someone who has turned his passion into a business.

And if you can get past the way he looks… you quickly discover two things.

1. Underneath that gruff exterior is one of the nicest family guys you’ll ever meet.

2. He’s one of the most brilliant business owners and marketers I’ve ever met, who truly knows how to have fun with his business (as I’m about to show you).

For years now, Steve has been exclusively serving the world’s most elite… the world’s most rich and famous, by providing them with experiences of a lifetime.

Visits to the Titanic.

Suborbital space flights.

VIP access to premier events such as the Oscars.

You name it, Steve can get it, because he’s got the connections.

I know, I know…

Looking at the photo of him above, it’s hard to believe.

Truth is, it’s not a very good photo of either of us.

You’d think that the world’s most rich and famous wouldn’t give a guy like Steve the time of day.

But let me assure you… Steve is “The MAN” when it comes to this kind of thing.

He’s the guy that got Lisa and I into the Elton John Oscar Party last February.

He even made arrangements so that my friend Dan was able to open with the rock band Journey, and sing 3 songs with them at a live concert in California last year.

How awesome is that?!!

Anyway…

At the request of so many people, Steve has expanded his business so that the not-so-rich-and-famous can also take advantage of his connections.

His new Taste Of Blue website gives us VIP access, without the VIP price tag.

This is your one stop shop for bragging rights.

If you want to be able to tell some “HUGE fish stories”, without having the rich and famous price tag attached to them, Steve can make it happen.

But…

Before You Click This Link, I need to give you FAIR WARNING!

The video you’re about to see, while quite entertaining to some… will definitely be offensive to others.

If you’re easily offended, Do NOT Click This Link!

On the other hand, if you’re up for an adventure, want to meet an incredible guy (who I’m fortunate to count as my friend), and want to see some brilliant marketing… be sure to check this out.

And if the video weren’t enough, get a load of the email he sends your way as soon as you register to become a free member with Taste Of Blue.

It’s brilliant – simply brilliant!

It’s also another incredible example of how Steve has fun with every aspect of his business.

Once you get this, take it to heart, and start having fun like this with your own business… the way Steve and I do… the money will begin flowing in more easily than you ever imagined.

After studying this example, you’ll understand why.

The NYC Meetup

Monday, August 13th, 2012

You may have seen the email I sent last week, letting you know that I was in New York City and inviting you to come meet with me in person.

I was staying at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square for Joe Polish’s 25K Mastermind Group and decided to try something entirely new.

As you know, my #1 goal in business has always been to use the internet and technology to create a meaningful relationship with you.

But I have to say, what transpired on Saturday allowed me to take this concept to a whole new level.

It’s one thing to communicate via email, website, blog and teleseminar… but it’s something quite different to step out on a limb and meet you in person this way.

Because it was such short notice, I received many emails from those of you in the New York area who wanted to meet, but were unable to fit it into your schedule.

I also received many emails from those of you who live in other areas of the country, asking me to let you know if I made it to your neck of the woods, because you too would like the opportunity to meet in person.

After meeting by the elevators on the lobby floor of the hotel, the 6 of us grabbed a table, made ourselves comfortable, and spent an hour getting to know each other better.

It was a great to be able to connect in this way, on such a personal level.

As it turned out, my friend Brendon Burchard even stopped by to spend a few minutes with us.

For me, the experience drove home a valuable lesson.

I’ve always been big on using my business to connect with the people I serve, but I’d never done it at this level before.

Truth is, I only know one other person who does anything remotely like this.

I have to admit, I was a little nervous (not knowing what to expect when I made the offer), but in the end, it was an incredible experience… both for me… and the 5 gentlemen who showed up.

Needless to say, I’ll definitely be doing more of this kind of thing in the future.

Who knows… maybe we’ll even get to hear from the gentlemen I met last Saturday, so they can tell you what the experience was like from their point of view.

I was browsing through the photos and videos on my phone the other day, and found this video that I had to share with you.

I’d actually forgotten all about it until just recently.

Earlier this year, obviously prior to April 15th, I was out running some errand when I found this guy… doing his thing… right in the middle our towns main street.

Truth is, he was hard to miss.

He was catching everyone’s attention.

I have no idea how much income this translated into for the business owner, but one thing’s for sure…

This guy LOVES what he does.

There’s no mistaking his passion.

Whenever I begin working with a client, this is the #1 most important thing I begin looking for.

This is our starting point.

I need to make sure there’s a certain level of passion and excitement about what we’re getting ready to do.

Because here’s the deal:

If your driving passion is to simply make a buck for yourself, and you can’t get excited about anything more than that, you ain’t gonna get very far.

That’s the very mistake most people make, and in my opinion, it’s also the reason most businesses fail.

If you expect to be successful and get compensated really well for doing what you do, you’d better be passionate about it.

You’d better care about the people you serve.

You’d better want to provide with them as much value as you can.

If not, people will see right through you.

But when you’re like this guy… well… maybe you don’t have to be THIS passionate, but you get my point.

When you actually care about what you do and the people you serve, and you’re genuinely excited about what you have to offer, people will sense your intentions and be attracted to you.

There will be no mistaking it.

So give that some thought.

If you could be doing anything you wanted to be doing, and you got compensated really well for doing it, what would that look like?
