The Best Online Marketing “Secret” Ever in the History of IM

The Best Online Marketing “Secret” Ever in the History of IM

I don’t know when you’re reading this.

But unless the Earth has been destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass, I do know that today someone, somewhere, just launched a brand new Internet Marketing product or course that will finally teach you the secrets to building a successful Internet Marketing business in just weeks.

How do I know this?

Because every single day of every single year, someone does exactly this.

And here’s the best part – many of these products work.

Say, whaaaat???

Yep, that’s right. They really do.

But YOU have to take ACTION and do the work!

Which bears repeating – Building an online business takes actual WORK.

There is no magic button to make a million overnight.

Magic money button

If there was, no one would be working the crappy dead end jobs because everyone, and I mean EVERYONE would be rich.

So just get those thoughts of overnight wealth out of your pretty little head the next time someone tries to tell you they found the magic button and they’ll share it with you for only $97!

However, if you are willing to work, and you’re willing to invest in your business, then I will tell you the secret to having an honest to goodness real business within 3-4 months that can actually get you a minimum of $5,000 per month.

The sad things is, most people who read this aren’t going to actually DO it.

And that’s because it’s not sexy and it takes WORK.

Eek! There’s that 4 letter word again!

And one more thing – if you want to accomplish this in 3-4 months, it’s probably going to take a certain amount of investment as well. 

Brain overheating

Now, before your brain overheats at the thought of all that WORK and INVESTMENT, think about this…

…what job can you get – with no formal training – that will pay you $5,000 a month, with regular pay rises? And that calls for you to work from anywhere you choose, when you want, where you want and how you want?

And in your PJs if you want.

Name me one job like that and I’m in.

But there’s no such thing.

Imagine applying for a job. The interviewer says to you…

“The only training you need will be on the job. You’ll be making $5,000 a month by your third or fourth month. Each month that you want a raise, you can have one. There is no limit to what you can earn, it’s up to you. You can work from home or anyplace you like. You can work whenever you like, as little or as much as you like. And if there is any part of the job you don’t like doing, you can outsource it to someone else.”

That, I think you’ll agree, is the job of your wildest dreams! 

And it’s exactly what you can have, if you want it bad enough.

So what’s THE big internet marketing secret I mentioned in the title?

If you haven’t already guessed it, keep reading.

If you have guessed it, are you doing it yet? If not, why not?????

Okay, here we go, and I warn you – you have heard this before.

You may have heard this 100 times before.

But what counts is the ONE time you hear it and actually starting DOING it.

Then it becomes LIFE-CHANGING.

And it’s why I’m taking so long to lead up to this – because I’m trying to help you make THIS the time you actually DO it and make it yours.

Here we go…

What you need to succeed is a LIST.

Yes, I told you that you heard this before.

But if you really want total financial freedom, you need a list.

You need a list.You need a list!

You need a list.

YOU NEED A £@&#$*% LIST.

Phew. Sorry about that. I get a little over-excited when I see people buying every Shiny Object out there when all they need to do is get busy and build a list.

I’ve been there myself, so I know how easy a trap it is to fall into.

Having a list gives you a ready market for any products you want to develop and create.

It allows you to sell affiliate products whenever you want.

It allows you to make money on demand.

Did a big bill just land in your lap? Send an email and get the money to pay it.

Did you just find some new gadget that you MUST HAVE RIGHT NOW?

Send out an email and in a few hours you can have it.

Think about this… properly built and handled, a list of 10,000 people can give you an income of $5,000 a month if you promote the right affiliate offers.

This doesn’t even include promoting your own products.

Plus when you have a list of 10,000, you also have leverage.

You can ask other marketers to promote your products to their lists in return for promoting their products to your list.

And you can build your list from zero to 10,000 in a few months, especially if you’re willing to invest in your list building efforts.

First, choose your niche. Health, finance and business, relationships, self-improvement… choose something you enjoy yourself that’s filled with people who spend money.

The hungrier your market, the better.

Either create a lead magnet or have one created for you. It should be an offer so enticing that visitors can’t help but opt-in to get it.

Put an upsell after that squeeze page to earn some up-front money.

PPCRun solo ads or Facebook ads to send traffic to your squeeze page. Just spend a little bit here and there at first until you get your squeeze page and upsell page tweaked and optimized for best results.

Yes, ads aren’t free, but spend some of that Shiny Object money on traffic!

Then buy more traffic. Use the profits from the upsell to buy MORE traffic.

Yes, you will be spending money.

But done right, you will also be making money.

Worst case scenario, you spend $5,000 to build your list of 10,000 people.

Best case scenario, you make that $5,000 or more on your upsell to pay for your list building.

It’s a leap of faith to do this. Which is why most will never do it. But because most never will, that leaves plenty of room for YOU to do it.

Don’t have money to invest in traffic?

Then you’ll have to use ‘free’ methods, which aren’t free. They involve spending time and effort, but again, it’s totally worth it.

Now here’s another ‘secret’ to getting this done – anything, and I mean ANY PART of this endeavor that you don’t want to do yourself, you outsource. Get someone else to do it for you.

Yes, outsourcing costs money.

You’re building a business, aren’t you? You are looking at earning a $5,000 a month income within 3-4 months, so just make the investment and do it.

Mail your list consistently as it grows. That means once you have your first subscriber, you start mailing 4-7 times per marketing

This is where you’re going to put your real effort – into writing emails that make people WANT to open them and read them.

You can’t force people, but you can certainly entice them.

Whatever it is that your particular list wants, give it to them.

If you don’t know what that is, hang out where they hang out, talk to them and ask them what they want, what they need, what one thing would make a big difference for them.

“But all of that sounds like so much work!”

Guess what? If you want to build a business it’s going to take work.

It’s going to take going through some bad stuff, some stuff that doesn’t work, some stuff that costs you money to build your business.

But once it’s built, you have a money fountain at your fingertips.

You keep building the list, you keep emailing the list and you keep promoting to the list.

Build, email and promote.

Imagine the lifestyle where you can be anywhere in the WORLD, send out an email and literally get money into your account that same day.

5 sales, 50 sales, 500 sales, all from one email.

But to get to that point you’ve got to do the work first.

And I don’t care how many courses you buy… The fact is sooner or later you will finally come to the realisation that regardless of what else you might be doing, you should also have a list.

Rich piggy bank


Because a list is security.

It’s money in the bank.

Now think about this:

A year from now something happens and you need to make serious money FAST.


Maybe you found the house of your dreams but you’re short $20,000 for the deposit (down payment).

Maybe your car gets written off and you have to buy a new one.

Maybe the taxman says you owe $20,000 in back taxes and you need to pay them fast.

Whatever it is, you need a substantial amount of cash in your hands NOW.

But thankfully, a year ago you began building a list.

Within 4 months your list was up to 10,000.

Now it’s over 30,000.

You send out one email.

And the next day you have $5,000 in cash.

So you send another email the next day, and two more after that.

And you have your $20,000.

You get the house. Or a new car.

And the taxman leaves you  alone.

Now that is security. That is power. That is freedom.

Financial Freedom!

And it all starts with you, right here, right now, creating your funnel and building your list.

If this is the only piece of internet marketing advice you ever take, you will succeed and succeed big.

Build. A. List.

Starting now.

  1. Awesome post, Sally.

    This is the crux of the matter. So, so important.

    Without a list, you’re constantly chasing your tail.

    If you can build an engaged list, even better, an engaged buyers list, then you’re 75% of the way there.

    Nice work.

    • Thanks Gareth and well-said 🙂

      A lot of people don’t initially realise the true importance of a list. It’s the best form of traffic you can get. And YOU control it!

    • Thanks Ray 🙂

      Most people don’t see it. I looked for a magic button myself for too long.

      If I’d only spent all the Shiny Object money on traffic I’d be a millionaire by now!

  2. Nah….. I just know there’s a Big Red Magic Button that’ll help me avoid all this Toil and Spoil dross.
    I’ve seen it in lots of places over the years, thousands of different Marketers have shown me pictures of it!
    You can’t tell me there actually isn’t one, even your Rabbit is hiding one in plain sight at the top of this post.
    You’re just doing this to ruin my dreams and take my hard-earned cash.
    This is plain awful of you, I’m going to unsubscribe, how can you be so cruel when i thought you were a nice person trying to help me….

  4. Sally that was maybe the most brilliant blog article I’ve read in a long time if ever. The content was awesome but the use of graphics fonts color and spacing was out the door intoxicating.

    See the problem with me and blogs is I hate to read! I know how to read and I know I should read all the time but the fact is I don’t. Your article on the other hand made me want to read… right to the bottom which happen NEVER.

    It also made me bookmark it to study because I want to learn how to write like this myself. SO Thank you Sally Lazarus for writing this and thank you Andy Brocklehurst for bring attention to it so I could find it 🙂 cuz I needed to see and read it!

    • Thanks for your kind words, Fred 🙂

      I hate to read big boring chunks of text too, so I like to add images and different fonts. It helps to make it more fun for me writing it too!
