The One Thing That Separates the Successful from the Unsuccessful

People often ask me how I’ve been able to build a successful business that’s doubled every year for the last three years.

The One Thing That Separates the Successful from the Unsuccessful

I had similar wins in the corporate world. I was able to set some audacious goals and beat them again and again. This has been a pattern for me professionally, but I have a secret: I’ve never assumed I could do it on my own.

So how have I done it?

Get the Product Launch Blueprint for Free

I was talking with a friend yesterday who just finished his first online sales campaign using Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula. He generated almost a million dollars in sales on the last day.

This is just a portion of the free Product Launch Formula Blueprint Mindmap

Needless to say, my friend was over the moon. He said, “I can’t thank you enough for introducing me to Jeff. I was skeptical. But, I now I’m a believer. Thank you!”

In case you are not familiar with Jeff, Forbes magazine called him the “$400 million man” because his Product Launch Formula students have made hundreds of millions of dollars with his proven approach. I’m one of them.

Right now, Jeff is offering his Product Launch Formula Blueprint Free. This is an all-new downloadable 22-page PDF, with a comprehensive mindmap, plus a full-length training video that walks you through each step of the Blueprint.

It’s 100% free. There are no hidden upsells, no cross-sells, and no catch. The only thing you need to do is opt-in (no credit card or any other payment required). It’s an invaluable reference you will refer to again and again.

But it goes away tomorrow (Sunday) night. So get it while you can. Just click here.

What I Wish Someone Had Taught Me About Marketing Before I Published My First Book

Whether you self-publish or publish through a traditional publisher, YOU have to drive the marketing engine. You can’t afford to leave it to someone else.

But how?

Enter Jeff Walker. Forbes magazine called Jeff the “$400 million man” because his Product Launch Formula students have made hundreds of millions of dollars with his proven approach. I’m one of them.

The Proven Formula I Use to Launch Every New Product

About two years ago I signed up for Jeff Walker’s Product Launch Formula course. It was pricey—and it was also priceless. It totally revolutionized my marketing.

Forbes magazine named Jeff the “$400 million man” because his Product Launch Formula students have made hundreds of millions with his approach.

Based on those numbers, and my own personal experience, whenever Jeff talks, I listen. And now anyone can because Jeff has just released a brand new free video series.

But there’s an even bigger reason: I am seriously passionate about the content and community at Platform University. Based on what I’ve seen so far, every new member added means the potential to transform more lives because of the insight and experience each new person brings to the party.

I’ve also noticed something interesting since we opened registration last week: Many people see the word platform and think, “I’m not an author or a speaker. This thing isn’t for me.”

Not so fast.

Sign up for Platform University today and get the inspiration, training, and tools you need to skyrocket your platform. Registration closes tonight, September 17, at 11:59 p.m. Pacific and won’t reopen until 2015.

What Would it Feel Like to Finally Reach Your Platform Potential?

This is a guest post by Jackie Bledsoe. He is an author, blogger, and speaker, but first and foremost a husband and father of three, who helps men better lead and love their families. Rebooting his platform is the focus of my latest video series, Your Platform Makeover. You can read his blog and follow him on Twitter.

Have you felt like your platform is stuck in neutral—or worse, reverse? For about a year I’d been wanting to make some changes to my blog and platform. I was looking for something, anything to help me stand out from the crowd. But not much changed, and I felt my platform was stagnant—until recently.

I was given the opportunity to receive coaching and work directly with Michael and his team through the process of tweaking my platform so I could take it to another level. It was an amazing experience!

8 Simple Tweaks That Will Skyrocket Your Blog’s Traffic, Growth, and Impact

It’s not as difficult as it might seem to get your message the attention it deserves, especially when so many others are doing it so poorly. All you need to do is to make a few small changes to really move the needle.

Blogger and speaker Jackie Bledsoe is a regular guy with a important message to share on helping men lead and love their families. He’s getting traction, but not the kind he needs to really break out from the crowd.

In my new, free video series, Your Platform Makeover I give Jackie an intensive, high-octane reboot. And the great news is that everything I show him can also help you skyrocket your blog’s traffic, growth, and impact.
