A subscriber was kind enough to point out my calculation error in an email yesterday. Oopsie. Forgot to carry the one or something like that. You probably missed it, but if you didn’t, Point still stands.
Thanks both for the hate and love mail. It brings a lonely tear to my eye when I see fan mail from various butthole towns in Europe and Africa and to know that the YaghiLabs truth has penetrated even the nooks and crannies of the world. Hip hip huzzah!
Yesterday I chatted with a smart feller who sells a service for converting VHS video tapes to DVD.
Weird thing is, he runs his business as a one-man operation…
Advertises it primarily online…
Pays minimal expenses ($3 every two weeks or something like that).
And he brings in a better income than I would make with a PhD, teaching your kids Computer Science at university.
So he asks me, he says,
“Jim, show me how to QUADRUPLE my monthly income!”
Cheese whiz. I used my error-prone mental arithmetic skills with the assistance of a calculator, and repeated the calculation 3 times to find his AVERAGE per lead value.
Just under $115/lead REVENUE…
Meaning, when he gets a hit at his site and the hit decides to fill out his lead form, regardless of whether or not the lead ever buys, he on average earns $115 for every person who fills out the form.
If you were there, your jaw would have dropped to see how he was doing this…
He did it with no mailing list.
No sales letter.
No super social media butt-crack traffic.
And the most hits he had in a single day was only 50.
I had plenty of suggestions for him to get more traffic from my super-secret SEO strategy, to a critique of his Facebook ads, to landing page copy and design which we reworked together…
But the real lesson I want you to take is not how awesome I am at helping very successful people become more successful.
If you take your new-found marketing skills and apply them in an area where the competition has no marketing skills…you will prosper, faster, easier, and bigger than your wildest dreams.
You’ll make more than a professor’s income while farting in your pajamas.
On the other hand, if you market marketing to marketers…(wtf?! Did I get that right?)
Which so many dumbasses do…you’re swimming with SHARKS like me…much more experienced at marketing than you…and they will squash you, stomp you, eat you alive, and burp your arms up covered in green acid-reflux stomach fluids.
Get the picture?
