One Product Booming Right Now!
One Product Booming Right Now And 7 Steps To Add
This Twist To Your Business Today!
Marlon Sanders here.
With all the "doom-and-gloom" being thrown at us
from the squawk box, you'd think we might as well
go out and eat weeds.
But one business is booming right now and it holds
a KEY for you to boom your sales also.
The psychic business.
There have been a number of articles published on
news sites such as msnbc about how the psychic business
is booming right now.
My local news station even put out a blurb on it.
How To Boom Your Business Right Now By Adding A
Psychic Spin To It
I remember WAY back when I was learning this business.
I did some telemarketing for Jay Abraham's office.
Those weren't the best of times either. And they told
me people wanted to SAVE money more than make it.
So people want to SAVE money. Help them cut expenses.
Help them save.
People want ADVICE! And they're willing to pay to get
Now, I ask you. What he heck business do you think
we're in? We're in the advice business. We give people
advice on all kinds of topics for money.
We hold hands and get paid for it.
Now, if I could only get that hot babe down at the mall
to pay me …
It's a joke!
OK. So anyway, people want REASSURANCE right now. They
want advice. They want to know the future and how to
respond to it.
This is something we can do.
I want to return to my theme from Saturday's ezine
article: You either go out and eat weeds, you dry up,
you get paralyzed and do nothing….
Or you go on the offensive. If you've been waiting for
something to motivate you to light a fire under the seat of
your pants so you'd get out of the paralysis of analysis
and do something — this would be it!
Do you need a BIG TICKET info product to sell?
Those $1,000 sales sure come in handy. My Action Grid
will walk you through what to do and how to do it.
Listen up: I've been in this business since 1978 (part time).
Beeing full time since 1996 or so. And the thing I can tell
you is the way you get cash IN the door is to create and
My Advice For Adding A Psychic Spin To Your Business
Here are a few steps I advise you to take:
1. If you don't offer personal consultations, consider
adding that to your mix.
Did you know psychics are even doing psychic readings and
sending them out on CD around the world? It's true!
2. Step up your personal advice to your customers based
on your experience in whatever it is you do.
Any experience you can offer scores points.
3. Be aggressive about new product generation
I advise you to DOUBLE the number of new products you
release in 2009.
4. Give your customers regular content
Ezines are back. Daily, weekly, sporadically. My
customers love mine. And if you write a good one, yours
As you know, the vogue among marketers is to only provide
content during a product launch. My advice is to do it
regularly and consistently to cultivate your relationship
with your customers.
PROOF: When Agora publishing moved from only doing direct
mail to sending out ezines to customers, they increased the
lifetime value of customers 5X!
I make nothing for recommending it. But if you haven't read
Ready, Fire, Aim by Michael Masterson, I can't recommend it
too highly. If you're in the U.S., it's a the bookstores.
If you're in UK, Singapore, Japan, Australia or elsewhere,
I imagine you have to do the Amazon thing.
But it's worth it.
5. Help your customers navigate through troubled waters.
These are challenging times.
But if you communicate with your customers, if you provide
solid advice, if you're aggressive about new product releases,
you'll weather this storm fine.
6. Show your people how to SAVE money.
Remember the lesson I learned from doing a bit of telemarketing
for Jay Abraham in the old days.
How can you help your people save money?
7. Set a goal to make this your best year EVER!
You can't get motivated with survival as a goal. Plan out your
MONTHLY goals right now to release new products and promote them.
Plan out your ezine issues now.
Set a goal to make this the best year ever.

I purchased your promo dachboard last week and read your newbie Guide. I Now it seems like that I should build a opt-in page, is it? I haven't built my any type of website yet. So what I must do the first thing with your dashboard and how to start marketing? On your dashboard of creating a squeeze page section I found the editing part is hard for me to do.
Looking forward to your response.
[Hi Min, start with icon one on Promo dashboard and go through row 1, then row 2. If you get stuck on a particular icon and can't follow the instructions, then issue a support ticket on it and ask Tim to forward it to me. http://www.getyoursupport.com. We have squeeze page templates in there as I recall so there is NO reason I can think of you can't set one up.]
There may be a lot of things that I dropped the ball on from last year's intentions that I set — but one thing that I read from you which resonated with me was to create more products. I found that I had spent so much time focusing on building my list, that I inadvertently created very little to offer them. Thanks for the reminder. You can do all the work to attract prospects but if you aren't creating new and exciting offers for them and teach them to buy from you — how on earth are you paying the bills!
[Hi Lisa, how are you? Yes, you know, you do have to juggle a few balls. What is a GREAT help is the book "Work the System" by Sam Carpenter. I prefer the bookstore hardbound edition. But from time to time he also offers a free pdf of it on his blog. It's an outstanding concept that I implement every day. You have to create systems for things and outsource them or hire people to manage them. You can hire a full time person in the Philippines for $250 to $350, depending on what you need help with. John @ outsourceplan.com has a system for hiring them. Great stuff! Thanks for posting and i hope u have a great new year.]
I'm turning my business into a coaching business as we speak (I'm already on Google first page for some good coaching keywords).
I sold a couple of my coaching for $497, and one of my best students make over $1000 per month now.
I really like to coach others.
Thanks for the advice. I'll be creating more low cost entry products for my funnel.
[Franck, you're consistently here communicating. And you're creating products and now coaching. Congratulations.]
Great advice right now, just as it was last year. I took what you said in your original newsletter to heart and doubled my business in 2009, but I know I could have done a lot better had I been more focused.
I think 2010 is going to be a good year for people who take your advice about creating products and just 'do it'.
Thanks again for the ongoing inspiration.
[Rocky, congratulations on DOUBLING your business. Very nice. Now, do that or better in 2010.]
I agree with Albert and the others here. You and your company are great, very helpful people. I very much look forward to this being the best year and a lot of this due to your mentoring. My thanks also to your very attentive and amazingly helpful support guys.
[Hi Dan, thanks so much. And it sounds like you're going to have a really awesome year!]
Wow. There is a lot to absorb here. The consulting concept is what I do in my day job and have often wanted to incorporate it into my web business. This gives me the foundation to work further toward this goal. Thanks Marlin.
Marlon, I just needed to say thank you for all you have done for me personally and all those on your list.
You talk the talk and you walk the walk.
Your e-mails are inspirational and motivational. You have a great gift to be able to boil complex concepts down into very digestible chunks. Your dashboards (I have three) are sheer genius. Totally packed full of useful, valuable, information. Packed full!
I just wanted to say thanks for all you do. Keep up the good work.
Thanks so much for those kind words and for taking the time to stop by. So what are your plans for the new year? Have you mapped out some monthly goals yet? If you haven't go watch the Michael Masterson video on goal setting on Youtube. Let's have a totally great 2009!]
I'm digging your newsletters as usual. For a minute there I thought you were going to sell a psychic bootcamp to your faithful audience, but thankfully, no, you weren't going there.
People are scared right now, and they're turning to irrational hopes and maybe not being as critical as they would be weren't they so desperate. So it's a great time for us to check in to our inner moral compass as we're deciding what to sell and how to sell it.
My heart goes out to Duane and I hope that he keeps the faith + gives his full attention to your recommendation. These are hard times, but we can all get through them (esp. if we avoid the psychics and trust ourselves:-])
[Hey Sylv, my spin on this is that people are looking for reassurance and advice. That IS the business we're in as info product sellers, assuming you sell info products. But really, whatever you sell, people want ADVICE based on experience in this market. Thanks for your comments and hopefully people will go check out your message of self sufficiency on your blog.]
(PLEASE DO NOT DELETE, PLEASE READ) I have been receiving your emails for over 2 years and have read most of them. Thank you so much for your persistence, however as you may be aware I have not ordered your product. I have read most of your products, Why, I am so scared because I know nothing about the internet however, I know that I need to do something this year (2009) or I am going to be at the same place where I am today. (STUGGLING TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE, REALLY)
I am being hurt by this economy and do not know where to turn. I always seem to be drawn towards you because to me, you seem to give sound advice. I can not possibly do what you do, that is way over my head. I am asking you to please give me direction. I do not know where to start but do want to start something, I just don't know if I have the skills and the knowledge. I do not know anything about the internet and I am affraid. Can you PLEASE give me some council and advice?
[Hey Duane, here's what I recommend:
1. Create a product. If you have Product Dashboard, do what it says. I don't care if your product is just interviews with a few people and you provide the audio and PDF. ANY product. Create a product in under 1 week.
2. Sell the product. Do article marketing. Put it on Clickbank. Post every day in 10 forums and link to your site in your sig line.
Find my article on the night time cash plan and read it. But really Duane, you create products and sell them. That is how you get cash in the door. I'll be sending more emails on this. Good luck to you.]
I have a physical product that totally fits the "psychic" catagory – Lucid Dreaming. I have good traffic which is getting better with backlinking and ezines, but my conversion sucks. It used to be much better.
The site seems great to me – Advice???JV??
[Hi Bruce, run ads for it in ezines. See if that traffic sells. Target ezines that go to people interested in psychic stuff! Buy banner ads on psychic forums and psychic blogs. If you know how, run split tests on your sales letter. Compare your sales letter to similar psychic products you know sell and improve your sales letter. Marlon]
You are one of the rare marketers I read and take advice from.
I read your email 98% of the time (when I'm too busy, I press delete…)
I'm working on what you are saying right now. I'm providing immense value to my subscribers.
In fact, I am giving them a course on my blog that they could have pay thousands for.
By the way, I recommend the design dashboard to my coaching clients.
All the best,
[Hi Frankc, we have a free report you can give your clients that is a viral pdf. It's on getyourprofits.com. You can see the squeeze at designdashboard.com/top10. Thanks for the business. And keep on keeping on.]
