The First Rule of Fight Club

iMarketing Tip: Know Your Customer
I’m a big movie buff and an even bigger music lover so it’s not unusual to hear me quote movies or song lyrics.

Case in point: The first rule of Fight Club: you do NOT talk about Fight Club.

We’re not going to talk about fighting or even discuss the merits of NOT talking about something… it simply popped into my head when I was sitting down to write this ezine.

The first rule of iMarketing: you MUST know your customer.

Know your customer. If there were a list of rules for doing business online, this would undoubtedly be at the top of the list.

When I used to work for a Brokerage House, one of the forms that we had to fill out for every client that opened a trading account was the KYC Form (Know Your Client). It contained the usual address information but then got into specifics about their trading preferences (on a scale from high risk to conservative), how long they had until retirement, other information about their household, etc. etc. The information was collected so that the Broker could make recommendations based on a unique understanding of each client’s goals and circumstances.

The same deep knowledge of your client (or target market or ideal customer depending on which particular guru you follow) is critical to your success in marketing your business.

I’ve seen it time and time again: a lot of businesses spend countless amounts of money and man-hours using the wrong marketing strategies or platforms or even words to reach their customers – both their potential customers and current customers.

There’s nothing worse than standing on the inside of a [...]

Introducing The DotCom Mechanics Virtual Classroom

I have a special announcement for you today!

I’m ready to bite the bullet and let you in on something that I’ve been working on for the past couple of months. What I’m about to share with you is a goldmine of step-by-step training and tutorials to help you launch and grow your own online business and I’m so excited that you’re reading this message because I’ve designed these tutorials for you!

You see, I’ve been helping people just like you get past the technical hiccups that can stop them from launching a successful and profitable online business. Isn’t it interesting to learn that not only hundreds but thousands of entrepreneurs have thought of starting an internet based business but had their dreams disappear in a cloud of frustration, disappointment and defeat by the seemingly endless technical challenges along the way?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could have a steady source of simple step-by-step instructions that are so easy to follow, it’s not any more challenging than, say watching TV?

That’s what you’ll get when you become a student in the DotCom Mechanics Virtual Classroom.
Drum Roll Please…
I’m super excited to announce that I’ve just opened the doors to the DotCom Mechanics Virtual Classroom. Let me tell you a bit about how it all works.

Each month, and sometimes several times a month, you’ll receive a video tutorial that gives you easy to understand instructions on how to execute certain tasks in your online business.

Want to learn how to create an opt-in offer to help you grow your mailing list? There’s a video for that.

Or how about how to create, write and deliver an ezine? [...]

    Internet Marketing Multi-Millionaire Breaks His Silence About Creating An Online Business

Internet Marketing Multi-Millionaire Breaks His Silence About Creating An Online Business

I just got a heads up about a couple of things and thought you may want to know.

Apparently, in less than a week, Armand is going to remove all the free videos he produced for his upcoming product launch.

http://tinyurl.com/25h6z3

He said it was because the videos are part of his whole “launch” and after that, he’s going to turn them into a product by themselves.

So if you haven’t done so yet, I would go watch your favorites today.

Speaking of the Internet Marketing Explained product launch, I just found out that he will be doing something very exciting on a late night teleseminar this Thursday (Jan.17).

Unfortunately I don’t know what “it is” but I do know this…

It’s his birthday on Jan. 18th and I’m guessing it has something to do with that or it could be something to do with his product launch.

Either way, I think it’s worth dialing in to find out.

His affiliate manager told me that everyone on the live call will be extremely happy if they “tuned in”.

Here’s the “inside scoop”…

This will only be made available to those who have opted in to receive his Obvious Truth report.

You can get it here:

The report itself is rock solid (sometimes a little brash) but overall really good.

But once you are on the list, you’ll be notified of the call.

So make sure you are on that list.
