The best marketing tip you will ever learn.

Years ago, my brother and I were looking for a location to open an automotive and brake repair franchise.

We talked to a gazillion realtors. We searched through traffic flow counts down at city hall. We spoke with the
mayor's office. We did everything we could do to try to get the perfect, but affordable location for our business.

Then we asked an Israeli friend who was an ex-Mossad intelligence agent what he thought about how to find the
best location. What he told us was genius and changed my marketing life forever.

The great thing is, you don't have to be an ex-CIA, Special Ops, or ex-Mossad agent to come up with clever ideas like our friend did.

The solution was simple, "Find out where Walmart, K-Mart, Sears, JC Penny's and other top brands are located and get as close to
them as you possibly can. Of course, start with Walmart and work your way down."

Bam! That was the solution that we were searching for. Why spend thousands of dollars on market research when others with
much deeper pockets have already done the work for you?

Okay, before you say, "But I'm an online marketer, how does that help me?" or "This won't work for my business." Let me answer.

This morning, a friend of mine asked if it was better to use landing pages on your own website or to use Click Funnel.
(no this is not an ad for Click Funnel)

So, I did about 3 minutes of research. Actually less than 3 minutes. I clicked on Frank Kern's email link that he sent me this morning.

Bam, again!

There it was. Frank Kern uses Click Funnel.

Question answered quickly, painlessly and without even having to use up too many brain cells or spend a dollar.

(no, this is not an ad for Frank Kern either) This is just good ole friendly marketing and business building, brand building

Now with that said, I also have an easy solution for finding out who your target audience is without having to waste a ton
of money experimenting with Facebook ads. Want to know what it is? I thought you did. I'll tell you later.

For now, take care.

Small steps make a big difference.

In 1993, I started a small restaurant hood and duct cleaning business. I was a nurse manager, and everybody called me crazy for doing work where I had to really get my hands dirty and work like a dog.

By 2010, My brother and I had a large multi-million dollar fire protection company. We had several crews doing the hands on work. And hood cleaning only made up about 5% of our revenue by then. We worked and traveled all over the world.

We also owned a franchise in Utah.

We sold it and retired for about 3 months. Retiring in your early 40's is boring at best. So, I started business and marketing consulting and coaching.

Over the years I learned marketing, branding, advertising, management, and copywriting from some of the very best in the world. I also wrote and sent out countless direct Mail campaigns and email ads.

I have written tons of books (warning , some are better than others). I got better with time.

One of the startups that I was paid to do in NY, sold for $25.5 million in less than 2 years.

As I said, small steps make a big difference.

A Magic Pill

This is my definition of what I call a magic pill.

Any technique, secret, tool, method, or shortcut that if you knew it, it would allow you to move ahead rapidly, is a magic pill to you.

This why you need real mentors, coaches, trainers, and consultants.

In your ads don't be afraid to say that you have a secret...if it is not widely known or if it's just how you do a certain thing.

Example, "My Secret Technique For Getting Recognized As An Expert In Your Niche Will Work Regardless Of Your Age, Gender, Or Current Income."

Always give endorsements generously when they are true. This endorsement that I did for Dan Kennedy, years ago on LinkedIn, brought me tons of business. Dan is a great guy and one of the best. So, if it is true say it. Obviously, when people look at Dan's profile, they also see my endorsement of him. It's a win-win situation since I have thousands of top level connections. Hundreds of them have done business with me or are close friends of mine. ...

Marketing is like a three legged stool. If any one of these legs is weak or not sufficiently situated then the marketing fails.

There are three M's - Market, Message, Media

1. Market - who are you marketing to? Warning - make sure you are selling a product or service that the market wants. Don't try to force them to buy something they don't desire.

Message- tailor your sales ad copy to the audience (market) you are selling your product to.

Media - where you place the ad. Facebook, Twitter, Google ads, etc.

If an ad campaign fails, how badly it fails will depend on how much money you have invested. Almost all other factors can be corrected. Lost money is lost money. That's why it is important to test your marketing on a small scale before going really big and investing too much money.

I have extended this to 7 M's for more detail in my free Ebook.

Best of luck and I wish you tons of prosperity.

My dad was a preacher and a carpenter. He went to places where there wasn't a church, bought the land, cut down the weeds, and built churches from the ground up.

He spent more time and money on the foundation than the rest of the building.

One day, I asked him why he took such pains to get the foundation perfect. He told me that I was confused. He said that no foundation is perfect.

He said no matter what we do we can't prevent somethings like floods of rain, trees falling, tree roots growing, and all sorts of other potential disasters.

He said, the best we can do is try to make the foundation as strong, solid, level, and straight as possible.

Even though this doesn't guarantee 100% success, it helps us to prevent disasters and it makes it easier for us to correct problems as they come along.

Even though my pastor, carpenter, and friend left me many years ago, his wise words make up a big part of my foundation still today.
