Out of everyone that I have met online, he probably has the most integrity that I have ever seen.
Once Dean created iPro he has been all about iPro and nothing else.
Have you ever bought a product online, just to find out a few days later that the product owner is pushing you towards someone else's product? Then you start getting countless emails about products?
How does it feel?
Kind of like betrayal?
Now if you are an affiliate marketer, you make your money based on selling other peoples products. However this does not mean to throw every single junky offer at the people who have been gracious enough to sign up for your mailing list.
It is your job (as someone with integrity) to only promote things that you genuinely know will help them to become more successful, or to eliminate a problem that they are having.
3) "Either You Are Somebody... Or You Are Nobody..."
If you are doing the same thing as 90% of the marketers out there, you will fail... just like 90% of the other marketers out there.
In this day and age, you must be different, you must stand out from everyone else.
Always aim for value first!
When you help people resolve issues and problems that they are having in their life, you become more than just another internet marketer...
You become a somebody!
Why Was The Character of Frank Lucas Such A Great Businessman?
In the movie, Frank Lucas (played by Denzel Washington) was more successful for anyone else because he took care of the people, so the people took care of him.
He had a better product and a better service than anyone else at the time.
He branded himself and his product, so everyone knew where it was coming from. If it was his brand, you knew it was going to be the best.
He crushed his competition because he gave the people better value.
What You Can Do Today To Start Being A Better, More Successful Marketer:
Start By Being An Honest Marketer
Honesty and integrity are the two biggest qualities in a successful online business. If you are misleading your readers or potential clients... STOP... IMMEDIATELY!
It will come back to bite you later. Your business will fizzle out when people find out you are not honest and you will be left with nothing.
Never promote anything that you wouldn't or don't use yourself. Don't be a junk marketer and throw every product against the wall and see what sticks.
Become A Somebody
This might sound scary... but it doesn't have to be. Just take it one step at a time and you will become a somebody pretty quickly.
Start by branding yourself. Whether it is your name, or your company... get yourself a logo and a style and put it in front of people.
If you are using your name to brand yourself (which I highly suggest) make sure people see your name enough times to remember it.
If You Are Not Using Social Media, Now Is The Best Time To Start
I used to loathe Social Media. So much in fact that I would stay away from it. That was a huge mistake.
When on Social Media, get involved whenever you can. Add value to peoples' posts, like and share, get social and network. Find the biggest people in your niche and do your best to get in with them.
An important note to mention though is make sure that you are delivering value. If you don't know the answer to something, go back to Number 1... Be honest or do not get involved.
Comments like, "nice job" don't get you noticed.
If You Don't Have Your Own Product... Start Creating One
The best way to become a somebody online is to create your own product. People seem to overthink product creation, so they tend to stay away from it.
It really doesn't have to be as hard as it seems. Find a group of people who are having a problem, and help them solve it.
Anywhere people hang out, you will be able to find problems if you look hard enough.
Spend your time creating the most epic, helpful, product you can. Don't hold anything back!
If there are competing products out there... Improve on them, add to them, find out a new way to do something.
When your main focus is value... when people see your name they will quickly realize that whatever you are selling is going to be the best quality.
