When You Got Into Business, You Dreamed of
Freedom, Control, and Comfortable Cashflow
Then basically 3 of my businesses flopped. I was affected by a $12MM near-ponzi scheme. A business "partner" hung me out to dry.
The stress of it all happening simultaneously caused incredible stress. So much I got sick. So sick I couldn't walk for 3 months.
During those 3 months I spent hours on my back, staring at the ceiling thinking about where I'd gone wrong. I realized there were two common factors in every one of my failures:
2) My Marketing
Well, I couldn't get rid of ME (lol), but I could definitely get better at marketing.
I made a decision deep in my heart to get better at marketing. WAY better at marketing.
I learned about online advertising, email marketing, video marketing, copywriting, making websites, and many other skills.
I asked my Dad if I could practice my new skills in his business. He said yes. Within a few months we were on pace to add 1,083 new leads to his business. A glimmer of success! Soon, other business owners came knocking to see if I could do the same for them.
One morning I woke up and realized I was up to seven clients. Suddenly I had a marketing company.
That was almost 3 years ago. Since then I've continued getting better, stronger at marketing. More potent, more persuasive, more profitable.
Awhile I ago I ran into a problem. More and more clients, but only one of me! How could I possibly keep growing my business?
I also reached a crucial insight: I was generating a nice profit for my clients on most projects. But once the campaign was done, most clients didn't repeat the campaign... madness!
It wasn't because they were dumb or anything. They just didn't understand how to setup a consistent, regular routine of repeating the campaigns that raked in cash.
I realized each entrepreneur - myself included - needs a SYSTEM, a MACHINE, a FACTORY that regularly cranks out winning marketing. In a predictable, profitable way.
Ultimately I created a method called THE PROFIT FACTORY.
It's the culmination of my study under world-class marketers like Perry Marshall, Dr. Glenn Livingston, Dan Kennedy; mentoring under elite level marketing firm Rocketclicks; being coached by Operations wizards Sam Carpenter and Josh Fonger.
And - ultimately - the implementation, practicing, and refining of my methods inside my clients' businesses which span Canada, the U.S., and Australia, generate annual revenues of $100K - $100MM, and include industries such as: real estate sales, real estate investing, health and fitness, high-performance athletics, transportation, and manufacturing.
I'll be explaining the whole machine - how it works, what tools to learn, who to work with, what timeline to expect - at a very exciting event called Profit Factory 2013. That's a 3-day event happening here in Edmonton Oct 25, 26, 27, 2013.
To get a taste of what you'll learn, join me for a sneak preview on Thurs, Sept 5. Instead of my usual marketing Meetup, we'll use this sacred 90-minutes to discuss how a Profit Factory operates. I'll share - for FREE - some of the insights attendees will be spending between $500 - $1,000 to learn at the full weekend event.
I believe your business should produce a constant flow of leads, sales, and profit. Like a factory.
I've witnessed how most small businesses (and their owners) struggle mightily to get anywhere near this kind of stability and profitability.
Instead they hustle 80 hours per week, putting out fires over and over again. Bewildered when revenues aren't improving. Gasping for air when they feel overwhelmed.
All kinds of failures can happen soon after. Relationships crumble, stress spikes, and - in my case - health can take a seriously scary turn.
BUT IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE THIS WAY.
By using marketing and systemization, it's possible to build a business that supports our lives, and not the other way around.
Do not miss this event. RSVP "Yes" and mark Sept 5 in your calendar immediately. Only 30 Spots Available.
See you then,
