40% of Your Marketing Success Will be Determined by ________

Have you heard of the 40/40/20 rule?

No, not the 40/40 Club, that club that Jay-Z owns.

Annie, my sister, used to work at the one out here in Vegas back in 2007. She didn’t last long, I think a month or so.

It was so damn shady, and they ended up closing their doors 8 months after they opened.

She ended up taking the initial test to get hired after a night out drinking. She went down there, took the test and passed.

Unfortunately, she failed another test.

On her way back to our apartment, she got pulled over, about 500 feet from the complex and got a DUI. And went to jail.

That is another story for another email.

Anywho…

The 40/40/20 rule is….

Audience — 40% of your marketing success will be determined by your audience/list. You need to be offering the right product or service, to the right people.

As a 36-year old male, I am not too interested in buying a bra from Victoria’s Secret — even if it is 85% off.

Offer — 40% of your marketing success comes down to your offer. Give them a reason to buy. Make them feel special.

This is what I refer to as a Godfather-like offer, one they simply cannot refuse. A lot of the offers I see online are quite boring, and all look very similar to each other.

Creative — The creative look and feel of your marketing will only account for 20% of your success.

You want it to look nice, but the right offer on a bar napkin, to the right person, can work.

In tomorrow’s email I am going to share with you a Godfather offer I just recently put out.

I told Amanda about it last night, and she looked at me like I had just landed a spaceship in the driveway.

It’s an offer with an absolutely absurd guarantee.

And it might backfire, but I doubt it.

Sometimes it’s about taking risks, and putting yourself out there.

And having unshakable confidence in yourself.

Be on the lookout for tomorrow’s email.

A Money Making Sales Tip from the World’s Most Feared Negotiator

Yesterday we took the kids to Ikea…

On the left, Ashton pretending to write emails like Daddy, and Ava, on the right, testing out a bed…

Surprisingly, they absolutely loved it.

They ran around, jumped on every bed & laid on every couch.

We didn’t buy anything yesterday, but got plenty of ideas.

Although, cut the trip short as Daddy was losing his patience 🙂

Anywho…

Jim Camp, was the World’s most fear negotiator. Fellow marketer Ben Settle, turned me onto Mr. Camp.

In an interview recorded in ’07, Camp said, “Vision drives decision”

We went to Ikea to create the vision of what we want, get an idea of costs, colors and things like that.

You can use this in your busienss, too.

Your prospects don’t care much about stats and figures.

You need to paint a picture for them.

You want to crease a vision for them.

You need to simplify it for them.

Here is what I share when I am explaining the power of marketing automation & email to busienss owners, who are not too familiar with how this all works….

Imagine having your own sales force, working for you ’round the clock — 24/7/365.

This team of sales assassins, can communicate with the most qualified people about your product or service.

Here’s the kicker, this team of assassins…

  • Will never call in sick
  • Will not ask to take a vacation
  • Will never show up late
  • Will not cost you a penny
  • Will never go work for your competition
  • Will not ask for benefits
  • Will ALWAYS present the perfect pitch, without fail

And this sales force will NEVER flirt with Debbie in accounting!

This is just a glimpse into the power of what an automated sales system can do for your busienss.

A bit more powerful than selling a marketing funnel and/or email marketing, don’t ya think?

I have created a “vision” for them, and explain it in terms a 9-year old could understand.

How can you create a vision for your prospects?

As Russell Brunson would say, you want to eliminate “techno babble” from yuor marketing, as your prospects will not understand that.

Dumb it.

Sell the outcome.

Create a vision.

Cash more checks.

Cut me in on some on the action?

The Marketing Trifecta: Market, Message & Media

This is a common issue I continue seeing.

And, it’s a mistake I made for years.

Something I am constantly working on, as I feel it’s never “complete” or “finished”.

It doesn’t matter what email software you use…

Or what funnel builder..

Or website platform…

Or Facebook ad objective…

Or image size…

Or what color your call to action button color should be…

Or what time to post on social media…

Or what day/time to run your webinar…

Or…ok, you get my point.

There are 3 critical pieces in ALL marketing.

That’s it.

And these 3 pieces have been used for the last 50+ years.

They may not be flashy.

They may not be sexy.

But when you put these 3 to work — the effectiveness of your advertising/marketing will DRAMATICALLY improve.

You’re better off lighting your money on fire if you do not nail these three elements…

Since I am in Vegas, I am going to now refer to this as the “Marketing Trifecta”.

The 6 Minute & 39 Second Formula to

Master these 3, and NEVER have issues with marketing again….

MARKET (who)

Your target market. I talk about this a lot, and it’s because it is extremely important. It’s much easier to talk to your prospect’s pain & problems and dreams & desires when you exactly who you’re talking to.

“Business owners” and/or “entrepreneurs” is not a target market.

Niche down, and niche down again. If you’re creative, you can create a “category of one”, meaning you virtually eliminate your competition.

Generalists fight for scraps at the table.

While specialists have Caviar for breakfast with champagne bubble baths

KNOW YOUR MARKET!!!

MESSAGE (what)

Once you know your market, you can now craft a compelling message.

How is your product/service going to help eliminate the problem they are facing and/or get
them to the dream they desire.

Why should they choose you over the others in your market?

What do you offer than no one else offers?

Focus on your client’s desired outcome. Talk benefits & features, but really focus on the
OUTCOME your product/service provides.

Work on creating a “million dollar message”.

MEDIA (where)

This is where you’re going to share your message.

This is the one piece on the “Marketing Trifecta” part that changes, the above 2 rarely change.

There are a plethora of choices on where to share your message.

Here are just a few…

  • A blog
  • Email
  • Facebook (organic, paid ads, FB groups)
  • Instagram
  • YouTube
  • LinkedIn
  • Podcast
  • Direct mail
  • TV, radio, billboards, newspapers, etc

My adivce is to pick 1 or 2 of the above, where your MARKET hangs out.

You can venture out after you get the first 1 or 2 dialed in.

I am not a fan of “be everywhere” as you’ll spread yourself too thin. Become a master of 1, maybe 2.

There you have it, the “Marketing Trifecta”

Dial those 3 is, and you’re literally unstoppable.

I recorded a podcast about this topic, have a listen below…

 

Baseball Players Fail Twice as Many Times as They Succeed…You Most Likely Will, Too

A baseball player who bats .300 (3 hits out of 10), is typically almost a “shoe-in” for the Hall of Fame.

Meaning…

He is out 7 times out of 10!

He fails TWICE as many times as he succeeds, and is still voted into the Hall of Fame.

You will fail.

I think I have launched/attempted 10+ businesses in the last 7 years.

In 2010, I launched a sports/Vegas/men’s blog called Sin City Trifecta. 1,000+ blog posts, videos, & 3 years of putting out daily content, I shut it down. Revenue generated: $0.

In the summer of 2010, I launched a site called TweetsToKimmel where I tweeted Jimmy Kimmel 8 times per day to try and get on his show. After about 3-4 months, I gave up. Not really a business, but an idea, but didn’t go anywhere.

I believe I have launched 5 Shopify stores, with 4 of them failing miserably. In fact, Never Settle, was a t-shirt store in 2015, and I held on to the domain as I wanted to eventually do
something with it.

I got my start with AMD Web Services — a jack of all trades and master of none approach to online marketing. I was selling $300 websites to start.

I cold called 5,000+ businesses and sold TWO websites!

I’m not a math major, but I know those are embarrassingly bad percentages.

I learned quickly, that cold calling was not for me. I haven’t made a cold call since Valentine’s Day of 2011.

Shit, a few months ago I launched a challenge to generate $10,000/mo being a consultant.

Epic fail.

Again, I chased the money as that is what others were doing.

I have failed more times than I can count the last 7 years, but wouldn’t trade it for the years of experience I’ve gained.

It hasn’t always been fun, MANY fights with Amanda & other family members. Frequent trips to the Money Tree down the street to pay for rent/bills/etc, pretty sure they knew me on a first name basis.

Failing is ok, and once you accept that, things can change fast.

Now, I am not saying I am 100% ok accepting that, as I still struggle with it, but have got a lot better.

“Fear of judgement” is a son of a bitch, and a devil I battle daily.

You’re not going to get a hit every at bat, and that’s ok.

Never stop swinging the bat, because it’s IMPOSSIBLE to get a hit, sitting on the sidelines.

You Can Have It All…Here’s How in 3 Stupid Simple Steps

 

Wise words from a TV show poster?

On my wall, in my office (read: a loft with no walls/doors and impossible to get ANY work done when the kids are home or awake!!).

Sorry, about that, just sharing some of my frustrations.

Anywho… 

I have a poster on the wall.

It’s from the show Entourage, a favorite of mine years ago.

On the poster, it reads — Maybe you can have it all

Years ago, I crossed out the word maybe, so it reads: YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

A guy in our Facebook group asked a question about what type of busienss he should start.

How to Build a Business Around Something
You Are Insanely Passionate About

Or have a STRONG interest in…

In Feb of 2010, I read Crush It: Why It’s Time to Cash in on Your Passion, by Gary Vaynerchuk.

It was my “gateway drug” into the internet marketing/entrepreneurship world.

And the book changed my life, but I NEVER put it into practice.

Well, after 7 years of ups & downs, a lot of booze, rarely being fulfilled in business, a couple kids and not one, but TWO Detroit Lions playoff appearances (0-2) ..I am finally putting this into action.

I feel anyone can start ANY business they want, in any market, by following these 3 stupidly simple steps…

STEP ONE

Build a tribe of like-minded individuals (your own blog/email list, podcast, YouTube channel, Instagram following, FB live, etc).

You need to CONSISTENTLY put out content on whatever platform you choose.
Ideally, your content should follow the 3e framework — Educate, Elevate or Entertain

STEP TWO

Ask these people what they want, or need help with. Problems they need solved. What they’re struggling with.

STEP THREE 

Give it to them. This can be done in free and paid forms.

FREE: Blog post topics, podcast interviews/guests, video content, guides, trainings ebooks, etc

PAID: More in depth content/ebooks, manuals, courses, master classes, signature program, membership site, software, retreats, group coaching, one-on-one coaching, consulting, etc.

This works for eCommerce, too.

Say you’re into fishing. Build a community of fishing enthusiasts and sell them fishing equipment/supplies.

This would also work for cooking, hiking, extreme sports, archery, hunting, travel, favorite sports and/or teams, scrapbooking and just about any other hobby you could imagine.

Conclusion

We live in exciting times.

You literally can create the life of your dreams.

It does involve work, and it ain’t gonna be easy. However, when doing something you enjoy, it is so much easier to push through those tough times.

It took me 7 years jumping from one opportunity to the next, to finally find something I have a passion for.

Something that excites me.

Something I feel damn good about.

Something I feel I am supposed to be doing.

Don’t wait like 7 years like I did.

You can start building your dreams today.

Can My Eating Habits Help You Close More Deals?

I know exactly what you’re thinking with that blog post title…

Adam, are you down at the penny slot tournaments on Freemont Street drinking that “free” beer again? 

To that, I would respond with a — No, I just got back 😀

Simple. Is. Sexy.

And simple flat out works.

I only eat plain cheeseburgers

Pepperoni only pizza, please.

Black coffee. No cream. No sugar.

Gyms shorts & t-shirts are what I wear 98.3% of the time.

So I keep my food choices and wardrobe SUPER SIMPLE.

But in business, I like to overcomplicate shit.

“Lets just make things more difficult than they need to be, Adam!”

I am improving, though.

Anywho….

Enough about my Daddy issues….

In today’s post, I want to share a little hack with you, that will help you close your next sale.

Whether you’re selling cars, homes, RVs, coaching, consulting, services, whatever. It really doesn’t matter.

Don’t let the simplicity fool you.

Every day, dedicate ONE hour on tasks that are directly focused on landing your next client. Pick a time, set a timer, and get laser focused for that one hour.

Be consistent and do this EVERYDAY, preferably at the same time each day.

Follow up with warm leads, launch a Facebook ad campaign, send an email to your database, cold email/cold, door knock, etc.

This does NOT include…

…messing around on Facebook…

…checking emails….

…taking any calls…

…playing on Tinder (or Grinder — who am I to judge!)…

I know, it seems so simple, and it is.

The problem with that is — it is also easy NOT to do it. It’s easy to “skip” over.

So, pick a time and commit yourself to doing this daily.

You’re not allowed to do anything that doesn’t move you closer to closing your next deal.

What you focus on, expands.

Focus on closing your next deal and and you’ll…

…close MORE of them!

The Brain Dead Simple Way to Make Money Online

It was June of 2016.

Not sure the precise details, but I stumbled upon a blog post from a marketer who I had never heard of.

It was a lady out of Australia.

And she shared something with me, that absolutely shocked me on her so called secret to success.

I’ll share that in a bit, but first…

This lady runs a multi-million dollar info publishing business. It’s her personal brand, which makes it that much more impressive.

Her writing sucked me in.

I was absolutely hooked on her style, and her take-no-bullshit-I-do-what-I-want-I-make-the-rules attitude.

I then began to follow her on Facebook, and I realized something very quick.

This lady was an absolute content producing machine!

Daily FB posts of 1,500+ words.

Daily emails, sometimes 2-3 per day.

I still receive the emails (daily), and still read every last one of them.

In fact, I have a folder in Gmail where I keep the good ones.

Anywho…

In July of last year, I invested more money than I ever have with anyone online.

And I knew her for about 6 weeks.

There are others I followed online for years, and always wanted to work with them privately and always told myself….one day.

This lady showed up, and her message spoke to my soul.

I knew, without a shadow of a doubt, I needed to work with this lady, so I invested in a mentorship program with her.

For the last couple weeks, I have been re-listening to the training while driving in the car, sitting at my desk.

It was a 6 week intensive program, with probably 4-5 hours of content. In the last 13 months, I have probably listened and re-listened to it a dozen or so times.

Each time, it seems like I pick up something new.

Weird how that works, but it’s true.

You can hear the same thing 3x, 4x or 10x times, but sometimes it can hit you differently.

In one of the trainings, she talks about why she is so successful.

And it’s so stupidly simple, you’re going to say thanks for wasting my time, Adam!

After 7 years online, I am really starting to appreciate the simplicity in things.

The 6 Minute & 39 Second Formula to

Anywho…

Here is her reason for having a multi-million dollar publishing business…

The reason I make the money I do, is I just make more offers than most.

Huh? That’s it?

That’s it. She puts out more offers, that’s her secret.

This doesn’t matter what industry you’re in — online or offline, physical products or digital products, a service based business, coaching or consulting.

How many offers did you make today to your target market?

How many last week?

How many last month?

I’d be willing to bet that the more offers you made, the more of the green stuff you put in your piggybank.

There is a big lesson here…

You have to be ok with the fact that some offers will bomb.

Some might not get any response, let alone sales.

The secret is getting back up, and making another offer tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, and so on.

You win some, and you lose some.

We all fail.

Some of my offers have flat out bombed. And it’s not easy dealing with that.

You learn, adjust, get yourself back up and try something else.

 

How to Squash the Imposter Syndrome Feeling

WHAT IF THEY THINK I’M A FRAUD?

Have you ever asked yourself that question?

I have, and it’s called Imposter Syndrome.

What is Imposter Sydrome?

Per the Google machine: “Impostor syndrome (also known as impostor phenomenon or fraud syndrome or the impostor experience) is a concept describing high-achieving individuals who are marked by an inability to internalize their accomplishments and a persistent fear of being exposed as a “fraud”.

This is very common, and something a lot of people struggle with.

REALIZE THIS: It’s ok to have these feelings.

And you’re certainly not alone to feel this way, as you’re in good company.

And no, “good company” doesn’t mean me 😀

Here are some high achievers (good company) who deal with this as well…
Seth Godin, author of a dozen or so New York Times best selling books, STILL feels like a fraud.

Jennifer Lopez, once said “‘Even though I had sold 70 million albums, there I was feeling like “I’m no good at this.”

Denzel Washington, once said, “That last five minutes before you go on that first [Broadway] preview, if you don’t have that ‘what the hell am I doing here [feeling]’ if you don’t have that then they say it’s time to quit,”

Here are some of the thoughts that run through my head on a daily basis when posting on social media, FB groups, sending out emails, recording videos, etc…

  • What if they find out I’m a fraud?
  • What will my family/friends/colleagues/people I went to high school think?
  • What if I fail?

HOW I BATTLE THESE FEELINGS…

A little over a year ago, I created a “Brag Folder” in Dropbox, and anytime I get a compliment on anything, I take a screenshot of it.

At times, I will scroll through past screenshots. This has been extremely helpful, and I plan to one day, print them off, and hang them up in my office.

I got the idea from a blog post I read years ago, so can’t take credit for it.

Give it a try, it might help you out, if you deal with this type of stuff.

JUST REMEMBER: You’re better than you think you are

Why You’re Being Selfish By Not Sharing Your Story

SHINE YOUR DAMN LIGHT!

We all have a story to share.

Your story IS worth sharing.

Sharing a weakness, and how you deal with it, can help someone.

Sharing a story about how you overcame a difficult time in your life, can help someone currently going through a similar struggle.

Sharing a story about how you beat an addiction, can give someone the inspiration and/or strength they need.

Your words matter.

Your story matters.

Your words, at the right time, can reach the right person, and have a MASSIVE impact on them.

Just last week, I shared a post in our Dadpreneur FB group about imposter syndrome (feeling like a fraud). It’s something I deal with, and many others do as well.

Last night, a fellow Dadpreneur, left a comment on my post. We both grew up in the same town, however, I have not had the privilege to meet him, yet.

Here is what he wrote…

 

 

 

This made my night last night.

It was exactly what I needed to hear/read, and came from someone who I have a ton of
respect for, and look up to.

Ironically, it was a post I was nervous to share. It seems the posts that I hesitate to post (nervous/scared/embarrassed/whatever) are the ones that seem to be the most impactful.

Vulnerability is powerful.

Your words matter.

Your story matters.

Brene Brown said

Owning our story can be hard, but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it

Act as a lighthouse, and always shine your light.

Share your wins & your losses, your ups & your downs.

You never know who’s watching, or the lives you could be impacting.

And one could argue, you’re being selfish by not sharing your story.

UPDATE: Ironically, I sent this out as an email, and received a reply from lady thanking me for the email, and letting me know it was an “email she needed to read after a long day at her corporate job”.

5 Mentors Who Transformed My Life That I Am Forever Grateful For

Quick question for you…

Do you want to shortcut your way to success?

Exactly what I thought, lets get started…

So, I got started with online marketing in 2010.

Some ups, a shit ton of downs, some shysters, and some damn good people I met along the way. I say “met” as I have not actually met these people in person. Some I have, most I have not. That is one of the coolest things about this is that you can build solid friendships with people online, without meeting them. I have some great friends I’ve never met before.

I used to think mentors were people I had to pay money to.

Per Google, here is the definition…

I wanted to put together a list of men, who I follow online, who have helped me become a better man, Dad, son, brother, entrepreneur, friend & person.

There are a lot of shitheads online who are out for one thing — your money

These 5 men, 2 who I’ve met in person, are men I admire, follow, trust & am forever grateful for.

Now, I have learned from many people over the years, these are the ones that continue teaching me things, and ones I recommend you at least check out.

This list of men is in alphabetical order.

Without further adieu, lets get started….

Andy Frisella

I came across Andy’s podcast The MFCEO a little over a year ago. It is, by far, the absolute best podcast on the Interwebs.

And it’s not even close.

Now, this isn’t to say that others are bad, it’s just the message, and Andy’ style, speaks to my soul. Often, I listen to episodes multiples times. Some I have listened to 5 or 6 times. It is that good.

If you’re interested to in getting fire spit in your ears twice a week, subscribe to his podcast here.

Andy is the CEO of 1st Phorm, a supplement company based in St. Louis, Missouri. The podcast is a mission, a passion project of his, and doesn’t generate any revenue. Shit, he rarely even mentions 1st Phorm. No sponsors, no programs or coaching to sell. It’s him (Vaughn & Tyler) talking about how hard work, dedication, honesty & adding value is how to live a good life.

It’s called the MFCEO, but it’s about being the CEO of YOUR life, so don’t think you have to be an entrepreneur to get value from it.

Why You Should Follow Him

If you want the truth on how to be successful, Andy is the one to follow. Since he’s not selling anything via his podcast, which is so rare, it’s like you instantly trust him because there is no hidden agenda. The man is so inspirational.

Ben Adkins

Ben is the guy I have been following the longest, on this list. He’s one of 2 (on this list men) that I have met in person.

It was 2012, there was an internet marketing conference here in Las Vegas at a hotel just off the strip. Ben was a guy I really wanted to meet, along with a few others. The week before the event, I shot personal videos and sent them to 6 or 7 individuals that were going to be at the event. A quick 15-20 seconds video letting them know that I was looking forward to meeting them at the upcoming event.

I’ll never forget it, it was Friday evening, and there was a little mixer before the event. I remember getting there a bit early as I was excited to meet some friends, who I had not met in person. Conferences are always fun as you can be online friends with people for years before actually meeting them in real life.

Ben was standing against the wall, chatting with some people. I walked in the vicinity of them, Ben spotted me, and yelled out, “Adam, come here!”

He knew my name.

Because of the video I sent him.

He recognized me. 

He referenced the video and said that was a cool way to get someone’s attention. And it obviously worked, and something I highly recommend if you’re going to a conference, no matter the industry.

It worked so well, that another speaker at the event (Brad Spencer), mentioned me in his presentation. He was someone I had never met, but sent him a video as well. In his presentation, he talked about how cool of an idea it was that I sent him a personal video. In fact, he referred to it as “The Adam Dukes Effect”. He shared this at other events that he spoke at.

Anywho…

Ben is a guy that is so damn good at simplifying things. A lot of marketers (read: most) tend to overcomplicate things. He has a gift of explaining things and breaking them down into shockingly simple steps. Extremely refreshing. The guy has a heart of gold, and is just a damn good person.

Why You Should Follow Him

A man of integrity, and a masterful marketer. There is so much to learn from him from just watching him. I have invested in his training programs over the years, and it’s always been worth every penny.

Ben Settle

Arguably, the best email marketer in all of Internetland. And like the other Ben, he keeps things brain dead simple. Again, very refreshing.

Ben has a podcast (listen here), The BenSettle.com Podcast that he publishes every Sunday. It is better than most paid courses, as he teaches the timeless principles of marketing. Ben doesn’t talk about flashy, sexy new hacks or tactics. He refers to the methods as “unpolished, unsexy”, but they have worked for 50+ years. They may not seem exciting, or new age, but they are effective. And that’s what matters.

He emails his database DAILY, which in the internet marketing world, is unheard of. It sticks out like a fart in church, a phrase he uses often. He’s the reason why I email daily, or aim to.

Why You Should Follow Him

If you want sound marketing principles, anti-feminism & humor sprinkled in, he’s your guy.

Mitch Miller

This is a guy I discovered last summer, and am glad I found him.

His no bullshit, give you the straight truth attitude is so damn refreshing. I’m such a fan, I posted on Facebook recently that people should start following him, which I have never done. His posts, I actually search for.

His copywriting is some of the best I’ve seen online.

An absolute master at positioning, and I am learning that that is the way to  skyrocket your way to success.

Why You Should Follow Him

If you’re interested in some of the best FREE advice online,  how to position yourself as the absolute go to person in your industry, charge premium prices for your services, and be looked at as a leader, follow this man.

Kevin Nations

This is a guy who lives down the street from me. By that, I mean he’s a Vegas local.

The picture above, was at his birthday in 2014.

I reached out to his girlfriend, Melissa, as I knew his birthday was coming up. I asked her what his favorite restaurant was as I wanted to send him a little birthday gift. She then asked, “do you want to give it to him in person?”

I fell off my chair.

Melissa invited me to their home for a birthday party with family, friends and clients.

I jumped at the opportunity, even though I had never met Kevin, Melissa, or anyone else at the party. The above picture was taken about 5 minutes after I arrived.

This was Kevin’s party, and he honestly made me feel like I belonged there. He made me feel  that he was more excited I was there, than the other way around. I assure you, that was not the case. He told me how grateful he was for me spending my Monday evening with him and family. A very genuine man.

Why You Should Follow Him

He is the mentor to mentors. He’s been teaching people how to sell high ticket for 10+ years, which is unheard of in our space. His Facebook posts are filled with wisdom. He’s taught me the importance of being grateful for a lot of things, I would have taken for granted.

Conclusion

Just a massive amount of gratitude for these 5 men. They have all taught me so much over the years, and continue doing so.

Originally, this post had 9 men listed, but the post was getting a bit long (1,500 words), so I am breaking it into two parts. Stay tuned for a future post of another list of men to follow online.
