Are you tired of all the BS online?

This is an open letter to my readers


Alright, I’ve decided that I’m going to give up my PG rating here and just speak from the heart.

I’m tired of writing all this uninspired crap about how to use this tool and that tool.  From now on, if that’s the stuff that you want you’re going to have to go elsewhere to get it.

I’m the one guy that’s going to forgo all the bullshit to give you the truth in marketing.  If you’re online just to play games and be social, do me a favor– stop reading this right now and forget you ever saw me.

The Internet = Marketing.  Plain and simple.  Newspapers and postcards aren’t pulling the way they used to.  You’re going to have to figure out a new game or get the hell out of Dodge.

This week I’ve launched a new initiative, but I’m going to need your help to deliver on it.  If you have a sincere interest in knowing how the internet ACTUALLY works to get more business, I recommend you hop on the band wagon.

Everywhere I look I see another freakin’ “Expert” preaching about the newest tool, or the latest trick.  Who cares about that?  If you’re serious about marketing the only thing on your mind should be R-O-I.

This week I’ve decided the best thing I can do for you, my readers is to show you exactly how I launch a new “Real Estate Business” online.  Now, the reason “Real Estate Business” is in quotes is because it’s just a new marketing funnel to push new leads into my existing business.

I figured if I showed you exactly what to do you’d have no excuse not to do it.  And with all the extra money you’d be making, you’d have no problem buying my future products.

(((C’mon, you had to know there was something in it for me )))

Like I said, I need some help from you to keep me moving down the path of making this happen right before your very eyes.

How many of you are actually still reading this blog and interested in learning some new strategies to help your business?  If you’re out there, I need you to visit this post and leave a comment.

As a matter of fact, it would be even BETTER if a couple of you would play along at home so we can see the plan work in more than one market.

So, the ball is in your court now Mr. & Mrs. Reader.  If you think this series will help you, and your willing to play along at home then visit this blog post now and leave a comment.

To Your Success,

    Okay, Mr. Tech Guy, you got my attention. Now PROVE you're worth it. I personally find all this social networking, marketing on the Internet, making $ on the Internet interesting BUT confusing and difficult to wrap your head around because it has so many moving parts! I need help tweaking MY stuff for sure.
