Top Internet Marketers Share How to Build Six and Seven Figure Businesses

The terrain of business, especially
on the Internet, is changing faster than ever before. If you’re not up to speed
on what’s going on, constantly learning and working with mentors who can show you
to what is possible, you are likely to get left behind.

Recently I had the opportunity to
share time with some of the most amazing people in the world of Internet
Marketing. Although some I have known for quite some time, there is nothing to
compare to meeting face to face.

Among the people I shared time with
were Mark Hendricks, Dr. Ron Capps, Stephen Pierce, David Purdue, David
Preston, Ron Davies, Lynn Terry, Shel Horowitz, Sam Crowley, Felicia Slattery
and more.

We all came together to celebrate
Willie Crawford's 50th birthday. We each presented information with eager-to-learn
attendees on how to build six and seven figure businesses.

Throughout the three day event we
shared insights that had many similarities. Here are just a few tips we shared….

How important are mastermind groups?

Many entrepreneurs are in dire need of support, nurturance and brainstorming opportunities with few resources … they think!

The thinking often goes "IF
ONLY I could get the support I need to grow my business without paying
thousands and thousands of dollars."


Groups are a great resource and support network for small business owners that
want to grow their business, know they can't do it all alone, and don't
necessarily want to take on partners.  The successful Mastermind Group
allows each member to share their knowledge, experience, creativity and
problem-solving abilities in a way that every member benefits individually from
the mastermind.


what is a Mastermind Group?  It's a group of like-minded individuals who
contribute ideas and feedback to help its members grow their businesses. 
It's a confidential forum where you can discuss your greatest challenges and
opportunities.  It's a place where you can get objective advice,
motivation, accountability and different perspectives to accomplish your most
important goals.


benefits of a Successful Mastermind Group:

o    Better decision-making and problem

o    Accelerated business growth

o    Increased personal effectiveness

o    Smarter strategic thinking

o    Increased accountability

o    Safe and nonjudgmental place to
discuss challenges

o    Expanded professional network

o    Improved life/work balance


If you are an entrepreneur looking for a great masterminding opportunity, Miki Strong has an invitation for you.

She is forming a Virtual Mastermind Group, comprised of Entrepreneurs in
non-competing industries.  The meetings will be held on Thursdays at 6:00
p.m. (PST) by phone.  If you're interested in applying to become part of
this group, email Miki at

Even extremely successful people deal with the Little Voice

During a recent mastermind call the conversation turned to
self doubt and belief. Belief in what we do, who we are and what we bring to
our clients.

Now mind you, all those on the call have achieved amazing
things in their lives. Awards, recognition, high client satisfaction, great
family relations, the list goes on and on.

You would think that people who have reached a very high
level of success (on various levels) would hold a strong belief in who they
are. For the most part we all do. However, every so often that little voice of
doubt can creep in. That voice that seems to pop out of nowhere.

Sadly, during these very uncertain times that voice is
screaming in the minds of so many. Unless one knows what to do to quiet the
chatter we can start believing the self doubt talk.

This can be detrimental to your business, relationships,
emotional, physical and spiritual well being.

Double your opt in list with this simple strategy

Recently I spoke to a woman who went through my Street Smarts mentoring course. She called very excited to let me know she implemented one of the ideas and her database doubled almost instantly. Another woman I spoke with had a 20% increase by applying a similar idea. I was as thrilled as they were with their results.

Want to know what they did? They put an opt in box on their website.

After talking with both these women I decided to do some “spying” on sites from others who have gone through my program. Alas, I felt a pang of frustration when I saw that several people have not implemented this one thing that is going to make all the difference in the world when it comes to your database.

The Single GREATEST Internet Marketing Secret

The following is an article written by Willie Crawford. It is well worth reading in that he shares what the Greatest secret to Internet Marketing is. You may be surprised of what you will read.

The Single GREATEST Internet Marketing Secret
Copyright 2009 by Willie Crawford

During my 12 1/2 years online I've heard numerous people say “There are no secrets in Internet marketing.” They say that primarily because they haven't discovered any that radically changed their world.

I believe that there are internet marketing secrets… things that the really successful marketers know and do that average and failing marketers don't. Many of these can be readily observed, so while they are secrets they're not hidden.

Often, it's those things staring us right in the face that are the biggest keys to success. The key is that successful people don't discount those things just because they are obvious.

So, what IS the biggest secret, or key to online success, that I've discovered in the past 12 1/2 years?

It's that people really do buy from people that they know, like and trust.

They also do joint ventures with people that they know, like and trust.

The secret is that we all like to help “our friends.” That also means that the secret is to be a genuine friend.

The secret is that while you may be trying to reach as many customers as you can, if you don't actually form some deep one-on-one relationships, your business probably won't grow very much.

You have to dig deep and not worry about what others think

to my garden is one of my favorite pastimes. It is very meditative to me. Some
of my best ideas have come to me while literally “digging in the

working in my yard last spring, one area I focused a lot of attention on was
near my driveway. There was an overgrowth of weeds that seemed to crop up

than use poison to get rid of them, I wanted to pull them out. To make my job
easier I decided to water down the weeds, let the water be absorbed into the
ground for a while, and then get down to some serious picking.

can well imagine what it must have looked like to anyone passing by to see me
holding my hose watering a bunch of weeks. As one neighbor walked by I got the
distinct impression he thought I might be a bit eccentric to be watering my
weeds. With a look of pity on his face, I felt he thought I didn't know the
difference between a weed and a flower. What he didn't know was what motivated
me to water the weeds.

Most online job and business opportunities are bogus!

“Currently there's a 54-to-1 scam ratio among
work-at-home job leads on the Internet,” said Staffcentrix co-founder,
Christine Durst, who screens up to 5,000 online job offers every week and rates
them on her Web site.

“That means that for every 55 [work-at-home] job leads
that you find on the Internet, 54 of them are going to be outright scams or
downright suspicious,” warns Durst.

Not only is this true for home based job opportunities, it
is true for those home based business opportunities; those claiming you can
make boatloads of money with little, if any effort and simply “with the press
of a button.”

It's Getting Bigger by the Second
The problem is growing in epic proportions, especially in
light of the current economic situation. Otherwise cautious people are being
sucked into situations that give the promise of financial security. Sadly many
people lose time and money to many of these “too good to be true”
opportunities. Some lose a few dollars while others lose thousands.

This is not to discourage you from pursuing your dream of
working at home. However, it is to encourage you to avoid jumping into a
situation without doing your homework.

Not Everything Is As It Appears
Before believing testimonials, guarantees, amazing earning
potentials, etc., research whatever it is you are thinking of doing.

If you have to send money for a job opportunity – BEWARE! If
you don’t know anything about the company that promises you only have to work a
few hours a week and make thousands upon thouScfamsands of dollars – BEWARE!
