How Gary Went From $18,000 a Year To $400,000 a Year

I wanted to share with you this article by Marlon Sanders. He showases the Power of Belief.

There is magic in these described in the follwoing story. Best of all the magic is in you….

How do you go from being an insurance salesman to a 475,000 person
list?

It’s an interesting story.  The other day I was at a bookstore as
I’m prone to do. And I saw this DVD called Tapping and it had a
testimonial on it by Joe Vitale.  I remembered last year that when I
hung out with Joe and Pat, he mentioned that he did this thing
called Tapping.

I bought the DVD and got sucked into a very fascinating story….

His name is Gary Craig.

At age 30 he was making $18,000/year selling insurance.  He met a
man named Dick Oakley from Pace seminars who told him to use this
simple affirmation:

“I earn, easily and consistently, $40,000 per year.”

I believe Pace seminars were originated by James W. Newman author of
the outstanding book:  “Release Your Brakes.”

See, Dick told him he was driving with his brakes on.  And to change
his income he needed to change the programming inside his head.

He started with the affirmation of making $40,000 a year because
that was more than double his income but still within what he
believed was possible.

The other important part of the wording was “easily and
consistently.”  He didn’t say he had to grit his teeth and work 12
hour days.

He started saying that affirmation 20-30X per day, not knowing HOW
he was going to do it.

Before long, we exeeded the $40,000 a year, so he raised it to
$60,000 then $80,000 up to $400,000.

You can READ the whole in-depth story here:

It’s the best single thing I’ve ever read on doing affirmations.

At some point, he owned his own stock brokerage business but left
that to start a web business!

He created a whole self development method built around what someone
else had already pioneered.  Roger Callahan developed a method for
eliminating phobias, anxiety and other things using an unusual
method called “Tapping.”

Gary Craig worked with him for awhile then developed his USP which
was  basically the Roger Callahan method with the USP of SPEED.

He called his spinoff method “EFT” for emotional freedom technique.

He developed a program where others could get trained in his methods
and developed what I’d call a massive affiliate base, even though it
wasn’t your traditional affiliate method.

He innovated some cool things.

But the main points are these:

1.  He created a whole ebook on his method that was his freebie on
his web site.

http://www.emofree.com/downloadeftmanual.asp

As a result he built up a 475,000 person email list.  He got a TON
of links that ebook from other sites which gave him awesome seo
juice.

2.  He made his money on the back end selling dvd’s, workshops,
certification and so forth.

3.  He published a regular newsletter of articles and success
stories to his email list.

There’s NOTHING here you don’t know how to do in that it’s things I
talk about all the time.

The best source of traffic is affiliates.  But he also worked the
seo angle by putting all the newsletters on his web site which
became a ton of content.

4.  He put a lot of videos on his web site to pull people into his
funnel. The videos were mostly success stories/case studies:

http://www.emofree.com/freevideos.aspx

Now, the point is NOT whether you think his method is valid or not.

The point is he did the SAME things you know to do.  Put success
stories on your web sites and blogs.  Have a great freebie to build
your email list. Build an affiliate base.  Publish content on your
blog and use it for your seo.

What’s so fascinating about this is Gary Craig didn’t INVENT the
core method.  He took what Roger Callahan developed and put his own
USP spin on it.

Speed.   That’s always a great USP.

He added a great freebie, newsletters, a forum, and a heck of an
affiliate base and people with a vested interest in his success.

The way he did that is a bit more complex than I have time to go
into here. He innovated with a few clever ideas.  But the point is,
he followed a known model, added really great marketing to it
and passion, and made it a huge success.

Unfortunately, all isn’t well for Gary.  He had a heart attack
and as such decided to retire, so his dvd’s aren’t for sale any
longer. I offered to fulfill them for him and/or buy the rights to
them but for his own reasons he declined.

The thing about Gary is he’s a relentless promoter. I admire that.
He reminds me in that aspect of Joe Vitale.  You know, Joe is a
great promoter and relentless about it because he just flat out
loves doing it.

If he DID want to sell his business, I’m sure he could sell it for
millions.  The assets he built up, the list, the affiliate base, the
products, the inbound links have a very high value.

I don’t get that Gary did what he did for the money and I don’t get
that he needs money from my very short conversation with him.

TAKE AWAYS:

1.  The affirmation method works and is worth using

The book Release Your Brakes by James W. Newman explains the method
in depth.  And you can read the article by Gary Craig:

http://emofree.com/palace/palaceof7.htm#16

2.  Realize that the gist of this story is doing what you know to
do.

a.  Have a killer freebie on your web site just like he has his
freebie ebook.

b.  Build your list, duh!

c.  Develop a great affiliate base

d.  Publish success stories in a newsletter or an ezine and use it
for search engine fodder.

e.  Have a back end.

f.  Be prolific

g.  Promote relentlessly

How to Overcome the Mental Doubts

 One of my favorite old time marketers is Marlon Sanders.

Without a doubt, Marlon understands marketing in lots of different niches. To get started you need to have the correct mindset.  That really is the first step. I wanted to share the following article from Marlon about how you can overcome the one obvious thing that is holding you back…you.

 How to Overcome the Mental Doubts
That Hold You Back From Success

Subtitle:  Is a Thief Inside Your Head Stealing
Your Money?
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

I have another niche market I participate in and hope to sell
products in.

This niche market involves a sizable learning curve.  I see people
come and go in it all the time. 

And from my own experiences and those I observe, there is ONE
THING that  keeps people from making progress.  And that thing is
self doubt.

1.  You may doubt you have the ability to succeed in this business

You know, we all have self doubts.  In learning the new skills I’m
tell you about, I know I personally have had self doubt.  “Is this
something I can do?  Is this a  skill I can master?  Am I TOO
OLD?”

Yet, the conclusion I come back to over and over is that success
in ANY endeavor is the result of behaviors. Change the behaviors
and get the result.

Wherever you are, I’ve been there.  I know what it is to doubt
yourself or your ability. To not be sure if you have what it
takes.  To try and have your successes far outweighed by things
that didn’t work.

It’s easy to get discouraged.  To stop.  To quit. To think that
this is the end of the road for you.  In this new arena and skill
set area I’m working in, I’ve experienced all those feelings and
emotions and more. 

2.  You may doubt your progress

It’s so easy to look at a few successes against more failures and
think, “I’m not making progress.”

I think this is the hardest thing.  You have to tie a knot on your
mental rope and  hang on.  Because the truth is, things almost
always don’t work before they DO work.

You have to really tune up your focus on any successes you DO
have.  And notice the small successes.  So maybe you don’t have a
ton of sales yet. But you DO have people subscribing.  Or you DO
have some sales coming in regularly.

Or you DO have your blog up and you ARE getting visitors now from
Google.

You have to exaggerate mentally the successes you DO have because
those are what show you that you ARE making progress and ARE on
the right track.

3.  Others will rain on your parade

So you finally get to the point where things ARE starting to work.
All of a sudden in a forum or someplace, someone RAINS on your
parade. They criticize your model, your idea or your efforts. 

Maybe they tell you you are pipe dreaming.  Or chasing rainbows. 

And you let it get to you mentally, spiritually or psychically.

I don’t know why this happens.  Some people just aren’t very tuned
in.  You have to believe in yourself and what you’re doing more
than anyone else.  I don’t know why it’s that way. But it is.

4.  You may have a set back

Man, this one is a challenge.  You’re going along.  You’re making
progress. You’ve got some traffic. You’re getting subscribers.
Sales are coming in.

Then you have a set back.

Something happens in your life, your family, or some area that
holds you back or slows you down.

For me last year it was a quadruple hernia. Not exactly what I had
in mind for my year. 

But you move forward. That’s all you can do. 

5.  You may think or feel that finally you’ve reached a point
where “it isn’t working.”

Anytime you’re acquiring a complex set of skills, that can happen. 
It’s a signal to  do some things different. To up your Game.  To
tweak what you’re doing and how.

==============
Solutions for You
==============

Alright, let’s talk about solutions:

1.  Operate from a basic checklist

Do you have your autoresponders set up?  Do new customers go onto
your email list? Are you sending out emails?  Do you have a plan
or system for getting traffic that has a  realistic chance of
working?  Are you creating and promoting new products?  Do you
know HOW to do screen capture video and post it?  Do you have a
blog that looks good?

These are all basics. I’m covering most of them in the
Quick Start call and PDF I’m doing for my Writer’s Secret
folks.

But you don’t have to buy from me to do these things. I
make things easier so you have to figure less out. But the
important thing is you have a basic checklist.

2. Give yourself credit for SMALL improvements

Rome wasn’t built overnight. At first, your victories will
be much smaller than your defeats. That’s how it is in a
learning curve.

3. Tweak but don’t junk

Tweak your game plan but don’t throw the baby out with the
bath water. You’ve got to believe in your basic game plan.

4. Know who to IGNORE

Just because someone sounds like they know what they’re
talking about and they criticize you does NOT mean you
should listen to them.

Everyone has a point of view and belief system. Maybe
THEIRS is the one jacked up. Not everyone wants to build
the same type of business or has the same vision.

5. Do the fundamentals first

If you can’t write a headline, can’t put up a squeeze
page, can’t write a guarantee, can’t write and send an
email, can’t set up an affiliate program, can’t compile a
PDF, can’t make a Camtasia video that’s decent — if you
can’t do those things, go back to the fundamentals.

It’s so easy to get distracted by bright and shiny
objects.

But what I’ve found is that success is the cumulative
result of layering basic upon basic and skill upon skill.

You know, it’s a cumulative result. That does NOT mean it
has to take forever or a long time.

My great pal, friend and inspiration, Jason Fladlien,
mastered huge chunks of this business very quickly. It CAN
be done. Still, he started with the fundamentals like
copywriting and mastered the basics.

You gotta be able to write headlines, bullet points,
offers and guarantees.

You gotta have your affiliate program. And so forth.

6. Realize that EVERYONE has self doubt

I think one of the biggest obstacles to succeeding is
doubting your smart enough, good enough and so forth.

At the same time, smart or good alone doesn’t do it. You
have to put into effect the right chunks of the business.
You gotta get the pieces in place. The foundations.

7. Value doing things

The single most important thing you can DO is something.
Just DO things and watch the results. Then tweak and try
again.

You’ll never succeed without DOING.

So get curious what would happen if you DO this? Or DO
that?

Find some way, some how that you can enjoy the DOING. The
BEST way I know of to do that is to get curious. And think
about it….if you found yourself getting really curious
about the results of DOING things, how would that change
the quality and quantity of activity you take now and in
the future?

And if you found yourself getting really curious about
THAT, what might that look like? How would things change?

Enjoy the process.

Fear of making mistakes holds people back. Curiosity about
what would happen if you take action makes things happen.

It’s easier to tweak a process in motion than it is to get
in motion.

Get in motion.

It’s half of success. Just getting in motion.

1. You gotta see opportunity

Where are your underserved people or topics?

2. You gotta get in motion

Take some action to exploit the opportunity

3. You gotta produce and promote

It may not be pretty at first. It may not make a fortune.
But if you find yourself getting really curious about what
would happen once you became a producer and a promoter,
then you’re almost there.

A week or two ago I showed you a new blog I put up. I’m
still working on getting my ducks in a row. But it has
ALREADY opened doors and I’ve met people who can help
parts of it happen.

And all I did was put up a blog. There isn’t even a video
on it. There’s just a basic graphic and a blog template.

Success favors those who take action and do things just
out of the curiosity to know what MIGHT or COULD happen.
