Today I got an email from my people over at WPengine.
They were like:
as a thank you for being one of the different entrepreneurs online, we wanna invite you to a meeting with our teem and a few other entrepreneurs to share what works online etc. etc.”
Wpengine is a company I truly like, not just their absolute perfect hosting service but the whole company – their people, policy and everything.
They remind me of Aweber – the most kind people I’ve ever had to work with.
I think that’s what sets companies apart – being super friendly with customers, affiliates and everybody… on top of offering the best product, of course.
I’m not that social and don’t do events for free (not that I’m pompous, I just don’t have much time), but I love telling you what works here on the blog.
Their email reminded me of a few badass techniques that would make you an internet marketing expert as fast as a bulldog eats a bowl of goodies LOL… that’s the only thing they are fast at (I used to have a bully, I miss him so much).
1 Go to meetings and build your Instagram
Connections are everything, you need to be social, you need to meet people and be seen with the famous.
I’m not a good example as I rarely even login to Facebook, but I was raised in a country full of stupids and had to distance myself to succeed… I want to be more social but have reached the point I don’t really have much time.
Anyway, you don’t need to know everything to be an expert, you just have to be seen with other experts.
Go to as many meeting as you can, take pictures with famous people and post them on Instagram.
Social media is a beast, you can become somebody in a matter of days, and this is when people start buying from you – when you are famous.
Some of these meetings would be expensive, but think about them as next level marketing, not as an expense.
To take the Instagram game even further, read this:
2 Start a show
Every business is show business.
Take my blog for example, it’s become so huge because I write not only to educate but to entertain.
Donald Trump – he became the president because he’s an entertainer.
Tony Robbins – used to be nobody before he started to entertain… yeah, he was positioned as a life coach, but he sure knows how to talk.
I can go on with the examples for ages, but I think you get me.
Let’s get to the meat.
Podcasts and video channels are fine, but a show will make you a rock star.
It’s not that easy to pull this off, but I know a guy who became popular by interviewing people only.
I’ll tell you what I think is the easiest way to get such a venture off the ground:
– Join a network marketing business
Anything will do, MLMs are weird, but they sure are a hell of a platform to jump-start your show.
– Invite people to share stories on your show
MLMers are desperate for attention, when you start inviting them on your show, they will share it all over social media.
– Once you get it going, start inviting the leaders
In no time you’ll have an online show everybody would want to attend.
If you hate MLM that much to not use it as leverage, you can build a blog like mine and promote your show via the blog.

3 Write a book
A book = authority.
I’ve talked about writing a book, read the article:
As I said in the article up there, you don’t even have to be a speaker to pull this off.
Think everybody who claims being a speaker is such?
Well, think again.
Put a banner in the sidebar, or any place you want, something like this:
(this one is from an actual speaker’s site)
…and take people (after they click) to an infographic page with fun facts about you (where you live, why they should hire you, what you charge etc.) and a form to contact you.
If you don’t feel like talking, and just do it for the marketing, ask some ridiculous price so no one hires you.
5 Get on my list (if you haven’t already)
I don’t want to brag – actually, I don’t really care – but not a lot of people write emails like I do.
You can learn a lot on my list… I haven’t had much time to email the recent years, but whenever I do, it’s something that changes the game.
There you go, easy as pie.
