$6 Lead Turns Into Millions of Dollars in Sales - Part 2


must-read post

 Posted 5 months ago, edited 4 months ago More by Leon M.

[b]$6 Lead Turns Into Millions of Dollars in Sales - Part 2[/b] This is part 2 of how a $6 lead turned into millions of dollars in sales. If you’re serious about making a living from internet marketing then I have some basic concepts for you that could literally change your financial future. Part 2 continues the story and part 3 will address the math. If you did not have a chance to read part 1 then click here: [url=https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=118185]$6 Lead Turns Into Millions of Dollars in Sales - Part 1[/url] The story continues… My ad was a horrible example of using direct response marketing to build a Network Marketing business! That’s what the well known industry expert on the stage told the crowd and what was passed on to me by one of my group leaders in attendance. Apparently this industry guru actually had a copy of my ad on a large screen and was using it as an example of what not to do! Did I get upset or insulted? No and No You see that ad was designed with [b]a very specific target market[/b] in mind! All I wanted was their attention so they would read further and possibly request more information. The ad was working and the results where fantastic. Here’s the thing… [b]Opinions are not as important as results. When you test and create a marketing system the numbers don’t lie![/b] My notorious ad ran for a little more than five years and generated excellent results. Each year I changed the dates, but the ad stayed exactly the same and ran month after month. Strangely enough that ad was never copied or plagiarized (stolen) to the best of my knowledge. Seems no one thought the ad was any good! More on this in part 3. Here’s an important point… I did not keep those results to myself. [b]I shared the results of that ad through a co-op system and many of my group members also had fantastic results.[/b] Several of those close to me laid a solid foundation for a full-time income from that one ad. As a matter of fact I think I’ll add a part 4 and tell one more story about one of those leaders and how he not only affected my business and personal life, but actually has impacted YOUR business. When I think back to the 1980’s I realize that we (pioneers like Gery Carson) had it a lot better than what we realized at the time. When I got started there was not one single book or resource available on how to build a Network Marketing business through the mail with advertising. [u]What happened was that we connected the dots between Network Marketing and the Mail Order industry. Because there was no reference material we relied on traditional and mail order marketing experts for our “how to” information. This was a critical factor in our favor come to find out![/u] This will become clear in part 3. Part 3 will address the math and additional marketing concepts that are critical for your internet marketing business. I’ll also add a part 4 addendum with another story that has significant meaning to me on a personal level. My desire is to simply help and inspire! Thanks :thumbsup: Leon McKee P.S. I actually attended several marketing conferences that featured the industry guru talking about our co-op ad. I never said a word! [url=https://www.sfimg.com/forum/thread?id=118364]Part 3[/url]

The story continues…

My ad was a horrible example of using direct response marketing to build a Network Marketing business! That’s what the well known industry expert on the stage told the crowd and what was passed on to me by one of my group leaders in attendance. Apparently this industry guru actually had a copy of my ad on a large screen and was using it as an example of what not to do! Did I get upset or insulted?

No and No

You see that ad was designed with a very specific target market in mind! All I wanted was their attention so they would read further and possibly request more information. The ad was working and the results where fantastic. Here’s the thing… Opinions are not as important as results. When you test and create a marketing system the numbers don’t lie!

My notorious ad ran for a little more than five years and generated excellent results. Each year I changed the dates, but the ad stayed exactly the same and ran month after month. Strangely enough that ad was never copied or plagiarized (stolen) to the best of my knowledge. Seems no one thought the ad was any good! More on this in part 3.

Here’s an important point… I did not keep those results to myself. I shared the results of that ad through a co-op system and many of my group members also had fantastic results. Several of those close to me laid a solid foundation for a full-time income from that one ad. As a matter of fact I think I’ll add a part 4 and tell one more story about one of those leaders and how he not only affected my business and personal life, but actually has impacted YOUR business.

This will become clear in part 3.

Part 3 will address the math and additional marketing concepts that are critical for your internet marketing business. I’ll also add a part 4 addendum with another story that has significant meaning to me on a personal level. My desire is to simply help and inspire!
