This morning we had 3 people unsubscribe from our mailing list. Not a big deal as that’s a normal part of business online and happens every day. We’re totally cool with that, as we understand the internet isn’t for everyone.
But what did concern us was the messages they left when they unsubscribed. Now if you saw some of the stuff people write when they unsubscribe, it’s definitely not stuff you’d share with your mother or kids, so what made these comments any different?
Well there wasn’t any abuse, swearing or cusswords – we’re pretty used to that and have got very thick skins as people think they can be anonymous on the internet.
And while we love all our customers and understand all most people want is to live a life of purpose and certainty, we’re not at all worried if some don’t want our help. That’s fine with us because we’re living a great life, working when and where we like and earning great money.
There’s plenty of other options out there, and if people want to take them, that’s their choice and congratulations to them for making a decision to change their life.
What annoys the hell out of us is most people just dont WAKE UP to the opportunity the internet provides.
The opportunities are right in front of their noses, and yet they’re making all sorts of excuses as to why they’re not willing to open their minds for a few seconds, and possibly open the floodgates to a life they never imagined.
So the first message we got was somone who replied to our email:
“please DELETE my name from your list. THX”
This one makes our blood boil! Firstly they willingly gave us their name and email address to receive free digital marketing training from us. It’s quite obvious they didn’t even read our emails, because EVERY email we send out has a link to unsubscribe at the bottom. They’ve got some idea about the internet and what it provides but why enter their name and email address and never investigate the supplied information any further!?
This person wants to stay in their own comfort zone in the hope something nice will change to improve their life without them having to lift a finger.
Well here’s the good news. NOTHING will change your life unless you do something to change it.
There’s even better news – it’s probably going to be a lot of pain and struggle to do it, but the results you get in the end make it all worth while. Unfortunately life doesn’t give you anything unless you’re willing to make massive change in yourself.
“I didn’t subscribe to this spam”
Sorry Pal. You did. And when you willingly enter your name and email address in exchange for some free training it’s not spam. For every single person on our mailing list who subscribed for our free training we can say the exact time, date, and the EXACT web page they signed up from.
Ask us. We’ll more than happily let you know if, like this chap, you can’t remember handing over your name and email address!
But what’s really sad is, this person has got the mis-perception that everything on the internet is a scam. From our experience, most people who think something is a scam have had a bad experience before (us included), usually either a product that doesn’t do what it said on the tin (presuming they followed the instructions to the T), or they’ve had the misconception that to make money from the internet just requires pushing some buttons and money magically starts gushing out of your screen!
So because it didn’t work for them, most likely because they didn’t put the effort in and treat it like a real business, it must be a scam!
The third person who unsubscribed was quite amusing because what they said to us is exactly how we teach people to market online. It’s also exactly how all companies market online and offline. In fact it’s one of the Golden Rules of marketing thats been around for centuries.
What do we mean?
Well did you know that most people NEVER buy anything the first time they see it or hear about it? It’s widely accepted that people need to be exposed to a product at least 7 times before they make an informed decision about it.
Think about the last electronic gadget you bought. You probably heard about it from someone, then went on the internet to check it out, read some reviews about it, then went to several different websites to see who was selling it the cheapest, then either bought it online or went to the shop you thought gave the best bargain.
But more importantly we can almost 100% guarantee you would have seen some kind of advert about it either on the internet, TV, in a store, or wherever. We’re all exposed to advertising every minute of the day. And we know what you’re possibly thinking – “advertising doesn’t affect me”.
Lets think about that.
If advertising doesn’t affect you, and we can assume it doesn’t affect most other people, why is it a multi Billion Dollar industry?
Because it gets results.
How did you first come across us?
From an advertisement…
Maybe Facebook, maybe you went to a website, or you could’ve found us on google. Either way, all advertisements.
Anyway, what the third person who unsubscribed said to us was: “Because it seems to me anybody that keeps banging on about there product as much as you do is just a sign of desperation I’m sorry to say.”
Unfortunately this guy told us in his message exactly how to market anything online or offline, he just didn’t realise it. (obviuosly it’s not just banging on about your product but you get the picture!)
Another missed opportunity. Eyes wide shut!
So, a bit of a rant we know, and if you’re reading this far we realise you’re more serious about online business.
We mentioned earlier we’re quite happy if people don’t want to work with us or learn from the information we share – there’s always an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each and every email.
Our mission is to WAKE UP people to the fact the internet is there, it’s full of opportunity, but it isn’t going to be handed to you on a plate. You need to investigate, you need to have an open mind, and you need to take action.
What we’re doing on the internet works, it’s not a scam, and from the hard work we’ve put in over the years we’re now enjoying a lifestyle we never dreamed of.
So if you’re hungry for change and you’ve got a thirst for achievement, grab an application pack to find out more about what we do.
It costs $19.95 but it could be the best $19.95 you’ve ever spent. (Oops was that an advertisement?)
