The Four Secrets of Ryan
The 7-Day Internet Marketers’ Retreat is well under way, and
yesterday, after spending the morning at the beach, we came back and had a
masterminding session on ‘Listbuilding’ with Ryan H.
He shared with us how after attending my seminar it took him 6 months to build his
list to 2,000 subscribers, exactly how he did it, step by step, and how he then rapidly
built it up to 25,000 subscribers.
He now makes $10,000 to $15,000 a month, working two hours a day.
He shared with us what he does every day, during those two hours, he explained how
he started building his list and what strategies he uses now…
… but understanding his mindset about how he achieved.this, was even more fascinating:
a) Make it a MUST
Ryan quit his job in order to ‘burn the bridges’. There was no going back. Succeeding
with his new online business became an absolute MUST.
(note: I am NOT suggesting or recommending you do that! I don’t want someone saying
to me a few months down the line ‘…. but… you told me to quit my job!’)
b) “The people around you may love you, but they don’t want you to succeed online.”
Why? Because it would put into question their entire way of thinking, their illusions,
and their programming (i.e. getting a good job is what you should aim for, rather than
building a business)
c) Speed of Implementation
Studies have shown that the faster an entrepreneur is able to implement an idea, a
marketing strategy, or a new business opportunity, the more successful they are.
Why? Because you get to fail faster, and therefore you get to figure out what really
d) Track your optins and sales daily
Every morning, the first thing Ryan does (and he’s been doing this from the beginning
is type into his Excel spreadsheet, in two columns, the previous day’s number of
new optins, and the amount he made in sales.
“You can’t improve what you don’t measure”, he says.
“Every day, looking at your optin and sales numbers, it will spur you on to do better
and improve on the previous day’s numbers.”
Ryan now gets to enjoy the fruits of his labour. He spends two hours a day writing
a daily newsletter and generating traffic to his optin page, and makes over $10k a month,
from anywhere in the world, just thanks to his laptop and an Internet connection.
