You might want to try to see if you can check out the whole thing yourself as I am giving you my take on his webinar with this series of 8 lessons over the next few days.
Anyways…..Lesson #4 deals with the Best Traffic and how you can sleep well at night.
Now assuming you have put some effort in towards lessons, 1-3, you may have some leads already coming into your website.
You want more though so do not lost track of what we learned the other day (again, see below for the previous emails in case you missed them)
Lesson 4 is actually broken down into two parts
4A) The best traffic comes from your own list: This is also your most valuable traffic.
Suppose for a minute you have a list you have been sharing quality content with for a while.
When you get your report going, who do you think will be the most receptive at checking it out for you first….Your list of course.
Suppose you find a product (That you own of course) that you want to promote or even better yet, endorse, then your list is the group that will be the warmest to test out.
For example, I told you last week about the Traffic Generation Club that I am a member of and offered you a Silver level membership with.
I had 20 people from my list take me up on that within a few days. Before I started taking Daegan’s course, I might not have had 20 people sign up in a whole year.
The magic is starting to work with me for sure.
Because I bust my tail to make sure it does!
If you missed last weeks emails, make sure you check out the traffic generation club, which features audio, video and pdf from the mastermind group of Ewen Chia, Robert Puddy, Mark Joyner, Michael Cheney and many more.
Now there was some confusion (short info then we will get to Lesson 4B) for those signing up so hopefully this will clear the air and make sure you get in correctly.
When you sign up you will see a special offer, which I highly suggest you pick up to help you run your business.
After this or if you decide not to pick it up, when you click on the “no Thanks’ link, you will then be able to register for the complimentary Silver level membership which retails at $27, but I am giving to your as a bonus for being a subscriber of mine.
Back to the lesson!
so on top of keeping your own list satisfied, you want to make sure you do it from everywhere.
Now what do I mean from this?
something you may have heard before, where you are able to tap into as many avenues of traffic as possible…
…Multiple streams of income!
That is right, Lesson 4B states that “multiple streams of traffic make you sleep well at night!
What exactly does this mean.
It is kind of like investment philosophy where you do not put all your eggs into one basket.
The same holds true for generating traffic online and offline.
Do not rely on any one source of traffic!
If you only have one source and it fails, or gets blocked or shut down, you are screwed.
You may have heard of people being Google Slapped before and there accounts were shut down without warning.
Time to start over again.
The do or die situation just went south!
You mist diversify in order to continue to grow!
Whether you are talking a stock portfolio or traffic generation, you need to do the same.
Have multiple avenues to balance out your chances should something bad happen.
In addition to these, Daegan Smith mentioned some crazy statistics in regards to email!
He tries to email his list at least twice a day!
Being in contact with someone more often has kept them wanting more and waiting for that next email.
He said his traffic doubled and then tripled with this happening!
Remember, when you leave a link on a blog with quality content/responses, the admin are more likely to approve them….
…which puts a backlink back to your site.
This is good news for your website.
Now this is like a mini version of the endorsed traffic I mentioned in lesson one and is an easy way to quickly spread your content around the web to niche specific websites, where other people who are interested in the topic come to read and share ideas.
So today, we are going to talk about the importance of gaining Freedom from your Job.
“Traffic + Your own product= Freedom from your job”
Conquering lessons #1 and #2 may seem like daunting tasks, but they have to happen and are something you will build upon forever.
You will most likely see this theme continue as long as you work online.
You can not just set it and forget it for the most part.
For example, most websites do not generate traffic just because they are live…You need to work on them and bring traffic to them, whether free or paid.
A great way to do that is by making a product that solves peoples problems.
ANytime you can solve someone’s problems you will be considered golden. People will start to flock to you as well a recommend you to others.
Now the product, just like your traffic can be free or paid as well. Do not freak out thinking you have to have a ton of training available and ready to go when you launch either.
You might just have a 10 page ebook in your niche that goes into detail some major issues you have noticed lately and how to avoid them from the novice to the newbie.
If you wanted more or a larger group membership, you could apply the first few sessions of training and continue to make the rest up as the weeks progress.
As I have heard, you only need to make enough content to get you throuhg the next week.
Then you have 7 days to make the following content if you promised them a new training every 7 days etc.
Suppose you have a once a month site, this would give you even more time to put your content together.
Assuming you have this model, one would expect the quality to be a little more indepth with this model due to the longer time to create as well as the more time expected for the subscribers to learn or train themselves.
So overall, when you have something of your own that you can offer a person, you have a better way to get them to opt into your site.
An ethical bribe may occur where you promise a viewer a report for filling in their contact information.
Once they opt in you could then offer them a OTO, or a one time offer….
…Just like I offered you when you joined this email list…
You continue to feed them content through emails and later offer the upgraded course or content you have or end up creating.
To wrap up then, “Traffic and your own product = Freedom from Job!”
So act today and create that first product of yours in a niche you are passionate about and start driving traffic to your site to build that list.
And get ready for tomorrow when we show you how to sleep well at night and where your most valuable traffic comes from.
To your product creation!
Here are some great resources you will need to build your online empire and get this cycle complete with the online Traffic Revolution.
Getting your stuff on other peoples networks and having them do much of the work for you.
So today we are going to talk about lesson #2 and how it make help your budget complaints dwindle.
This lesson will also help you grow your traffic by factors as Daegan Smith puts it.
What is it you might ask that allows you to save money and grow your traffic exponentially…
For example, an ad Co-Op.
How these work are pretty simple.
You do have to have software capable of rotating affiliate links with your group so do some research into what would work best for you.
Check out http://www.atomtrack.com/ for an idea where you could make this work. I have no affiliate with these guys whatsoever…
Anyway, back to how a Co-Op works
What you do is get a group of people with like minded interest , for example those that all below to the same forum, membership group or even facebook group who want to run an ad together.
Now you have heard the expression, the sum is greater than all of it’s parts correct?
Sort of like, two people can get more done in one day that you might be able to get done by yourself in two days. Both might be 16 hours worth of labor completed, but the group will most likely come out on top.
The same holds true for an Ad Co-Op.
When you have multiple people helping each other out their sum total is going to be greater here.
Each member buys into the Co-Op with a small entry fee, say $100 for starters, which is a good basis for someone on a limited budget in regards to what they can spend per month on advertising.
$100 might not get you very far by yourself, though when I have 10 people working together, I now have $1000 to put into an advertising campaign.
This is where the increase in factors occurs.
Let’s say you can only do traffic to one place like Facebook or Google, now you will be able to spread your links to more locations.
Another possibility is that now you can reach higher quality traffic by possiblu submitting an ad to an actual print newsletter like “Target Marketing” or some other Journal.
Keep in mind you will be sharing the traffic, and also that you are now in more places.
And it is going to be targeted assuming it is set up the correct way.
I hope you can see the value presented here and your homework assignment is go back to the groups you were talking with yesterday and ask them a simple question…
Are you interested in forming an ad co-op.
Anyway you can increase traffic to your sites, the better off you will be.
And as a reminder of yesterday’s email, getting the right traffic is like magic!
So head out and get in touch with some people today to start a Co-op!
And on that note, I am going to ask you to get in touch with me as well if you are interested in a co-op!
We would need to settle on one common area or thing we point our ad to and there are some good ideas I have in mind which you can see below.
2) Join me at GVOHost Then Profits or Meet Cheap and we can also co-op our ads with these guys (you need to be a paying member with these marketing tools necessary for building a business at $10 a month)
Join me in all three spots and I will reward you handsomely with some great bonuses and extra training. Just send me an email when you have joined so I can verify and get you going with the bonuses.
I will also be coming up with a website link/page that details more in regards to credits available and percentages of links forwarded to your affiliate link soon, so be on the look out for that in a future email.
So to wrap things up today, either get in touch with me after you join #1 and/or #2 above or get in touch with someone from a niche you are passionate about and take action!
Get going on the exponential growth factor that is available with a Co-op!
Tomorrow when we get into Lesson #3, we will be talking about Freedom from your JOB!
Otherwise, until tomorrow where we find out the next key lesson in the online traffic revolution.
Your hint is that it will be something to help you remove some budgetary constraints you may be experiencing.
To driving quality traffic!

services, autoresponder services
and much more.
Truth #10: being active in groups,
forums and social networks can be
extremely beneficial to your growth,
if you do it the correct way.
There are many more truths to
working online, but we can go
further into them in another
So back to the story I was going
to mention to you that is going
to help build the relationship
I will call it “explosive”
You see, I was a Peace Corps
Volunteer from 1998-2000 in the
Solomon Islands, which is in the
These happy isles, had their moments
where I was not so happy, or feeling
You see, I usally prepared my own
food while I was there. I knew
whether the food was cooked well
enough to kill any harmful pathogen.
I trusted myself.
The question arose in whether I
trusted their cooking and the way
they handled their food.
Anyways, while I was there, I was
able to participate in a few feasts!
The look of those long rows of
banana leafs laid out with freshly
cooked wild pig, reef fish and
harvested river fern and baked
tapioca pudding, still brings
saliva running though my mouth.
The problem was though in who was
handling the food. It may have
been touched by a few people
Then it might have been sitting
for a while with flies hovering
over to get their take, while
students tried to fan them away.
Anyways, the food always appeased
my palate on the way down, though
I usually paid for it later.
You have all been there before…
The cramping, gas and pain.
Yeah, I had them all, but never
as bad as one night after hanging
out with the whole school.
As we sat watching a movie during
our Friday night entertainment (we
had generator run power a couple
hours each night in the jungle) I
started to feel the cramping coming
I suffered through the pain like
you probably have as well, until
I knew it was beyond the point I
should have stayed.
Things were moving in my intestines
like they never have before.
I felt that if I relaxed for even
one moment, there would be an
extremely embarrassing momemt on
I was not relaxed in any sense of
I was able to leave the area where
students were, calling it a night
and headed back to my house.
I never made it in time…
The cramps got so bad, that I
litterally could not take another
step without feeling as though
my inner life was going to launch
out of me.
The sweats came and I tried
to breath slowly…no luck, but the
cramping temporarily subsided.
I started to walk up the hill and
the next wave came even more intense.
The hill had a little ridge path, with
some depressed areas on the side of
There came my welcomed relief.
As this rush of sweat, nausea and
cramping overcame me and I could not
squeeze hard enough to keep from
blowing, I was able to drop my shorts.
That’s what I will call it…I had
so much blow out of me, that I felt
ill thinking about it.
I am thankfull for the fact that
I was in the middle of the jungle
and there were no lights lining
the path to my house.
I quickly pulled the short back on
and made the additional 100 or so feet
to my house where I proceeded to clean
up and go to bed in pain.
Off the top of my head, I do not remember
how long I felt ill after my explosive
episode (I have to go back and read my
journals to get my dates straight) though
this is something I will never forget.
We even had a running joke amongst the
Peace Corps VOlunteers, that “You were
never really a volunteer until you crapped
I had officially made it in more than one
Now, hopefully I didn’t gross you out
or turn you off too much.
My whole point in doing this was to
share a little of myself and let you
know I am an honest person.
I am not one to sugar coat things.
I am one to push you hard so that you
We all have our times of embarrassment
and what makes us stand out is how well
we persevere after this.
In the online world, we might also make
mistakes or have major problems that need
to be addressed. The more open and honest
you are with people, the better your
success rate will be.
So here is one final truth today.
Truth #11: If you are not honest with
the people you work with, you will
struggle to achieve any success and they

The other night my wife put me in charge of coming up
with a movie that we could watch. After playing around
for a while with an online service similar to Netflix
I came up with a choice that would bring up some
memories of near death.
So I proceeded to lug my laptop downstairs and ask
if she wanted to watch Soul Surfer, to which my
10 year old daughter pipes in YES, YES, YES!
My wife was not all in at first, but decided to
go along as the kid was excited to watch this story
about a young teenage girl who had her arm tore off
my a shark while surfing in Hawaii.
This is based on a true story, so of course we knew
the main line. We had known about it for some time
as the story was all over the news when it happened.
The most amazing thing about it all, is that she never
really gave up on her desire to be a competitive surfer.
Yeah she stuggled, but then again, who doesn’t at times.
But trying to do something after a major trauma is
extemely commendable in such a short period of time.
This girl is a survivor because she never gave up.
She could have easily seen the fact that you can’t
be a great swimmer with only one arm.
She could have seen that she could not do a push up
on the board while being tossed by the ocean.
She could have easily seen that her body was totally
out of balance with one less appendage.
You know what though…
She saw none of that!
She saw herself getting right back up on the board.
Was it a struggle. Damn right it was, but she was
Regardless of what happens to you in your struggles
to make it in your business, how you see the future
playing before you is of utmost importance.
Having the proper mindset is your basepoint and this
is what this girl had.
So what does that have to do with my almost dying?
Well back in 1999, I was living in the Solomon Islands,
in the South Pacific as a Peace Corps Volunteer.
I was there as a science teacher (and math as well) for
two years and we liked to spear fish! Talk about a rush!
After a 20 minute walk down to our dugout canoe, it was
another 15 or so minutes paddle down the river to get to
the mouth where we would head over to the reef to see
what we could catch.
This time however was a little different as we got our
fellow teacher to take us in a motorized fiberblass
canoe so we could go outside the reef and throw out
a line. That’s us here with me on the right with
some Barracuda and snapper that we caught litterally
We wanted to spear fish as well and that is when the fun
began. If you consider near death experiences that is.
Now just to give you a little more background, we saw
sharks just about everytime we went out. These small
3-4 foot reef sharks would typically take off as soon
as we came around a reef corner and saw them.
So as we were spear fishing this day we ended up finding
a morey eel, so why not try to catch it and see what it
tastes like. The locals would eat anything, so we
knew it would not go to waste.
One spear in and it gets exciting. You can imagine it
was pretty pissed off to have just been stabbed by a spear.
A little puff of what looks like blood coming out from the
reef as the eels basically tore part of its tails off
as it struggled to get free from the spear.
One Shark….and not your typical reef shark, but this one
looks bigger than me and I stand 6’2″ tall.
He was circling me, my buddy and the eel, trying to figure
what was going on and assessing the situation because
of the sent of blood.
So my buddy is trying to get the eel out (as he was
speared again in the meantime) and I am watching the one
shark with my spear at the ready.
Two Sharks…now we have a mirror image of the first shark
circling us almost in opposite of the first one. Crap!
This is not looking good for us. Get us the “F” out of here.
Thank god for our buddy with the motorized canoe on this day.
Any wrong move and/or distress from us could have brought
these two sharks to a feeding frenzy on the two giant red-
heads swimming in their land.
We made it out safe of course and even ended up being able
to hook and pull the eel out without a scratch on our bodies
but with a definite respect for the unknown of the deep.
And yes, we did go back the following week and many times
after that to fish, because we saw ourselves being successful.
No one should go out with the mindset that they are going to
get eaten by a shark, though in the back of your mind you
need to know it can happen.
Being prepared is the best way to combat this. Having a plan
of action is what you need for the worst case scenario in
addition to the best case scenario.
So just like our Soul Surfer. Realize that no matter what
happens you can find a way to get back up on your feet
and be successful. If it is a struggle at first, expect this
and know it will get easier.
The other thing to remember is you can do it all on your own
or you can seek guidance from others who have been there.
So take action now and get yourself back up. Do something that
helps others be able to help themselves…Wait a minute, that’s
one of the main goals of the Peace Corps.
You can do it on your own or use a system that works. My buddy Daegan Smith has been through it all and is a leader among
leader who has maximum leverage to help in making the right moves.
Don’t let the sharks round up on you, but make sure you have that
safety boat on the side waiting to pick you up when you are down.
We all have a goal to make it to the
top…some of us get there quicker,
while others take a little longer.
Then there are the select few who
make a choice and quit.
Quit because they don’t know how,
or quit because it is too hard,
or quit because they have other
stuff they are doing.
Doesn’t matter how you look at it,
quiting is quiting. You have physically
or mentally gave up.
Really? Let’s go back to middle school,
where on the gym walls read the following:
“Quiters never win and winners never quit!”
Might sound elementary, but sometimes you
need to put things into perspective and
realize it is the basic things you need
to focus on and the big picture will
take care of itself over time.
No one is going to give you anything to make
you a success today, this week or this month.
Well, I kind of take that back. You might have
success stories by the end of the month.
It all depends on your desires and whether
or not you still really want it.
Are you just going through the motions or
are you taking action on what people suggest?
You will never make it by sitting around and
watching what other people do.
You actually have to take action on whatever
it was you saw those other people doing and
being successful at.
Take this morning for example. I told you to
go check out the new Meet Cheap Software and
live demo webinar with Mark Call.
If you made it, congrats, if not, there is
still hope for you. The real point I want
to make with this is that no less than three
times during this webinar, they actually
mentioned Daegan Smith’s name.
Now this maximum leverage Genius just
had his social proof meeter exploded with
well over 500 people between the webinar room
and the viral webcaster Facebook Page.
Perhaps you have been eating up everything he
has written to you the past few days and
actually acted upon it. I commend you if you
have. For those that have not. I am not sure
what you are waiting for.
It is the little actions that build up to big
results in the long run…Which is what you
should be aiming for. Not only to just make
some money soon, but to also make it a continual
thing that makes your future secure.
So I want you to take action on a four things
here and now to show that you are vested in
your success! You might need to stay up a little
to do this, but hey, it is the weekend right!
1) Commit to doing something, even one thing
productive each day. Could be a blog post,
email to your list(if you have one), helping
someone on FB or twitter, or similar
3) Pick up Daegan’s Maximum Leverage if you
haven’t already. This is going to bring you
to the letter that talks about it and gives
you a trial of the course… You can go through
it all and educate to your hearts content. You
might just read or listen to one thing that
could make a complete difference in your business.
4) If you are serious about marketing you will need
some tools. Go check out the overview
that another one of my mentors, Joel Therien put
together showcasing the complete tool package you
need to be successful.
As I always say, “You get out of it what you
put into it”
Do’t be afraid of failure, instead welcome it.
This means you know what does not work and you are
one step closer to success. Better yet, let me and Daegan Smith help you out in achieving success.
Make sure our email addresses are whitelisted or
saved to ensure you get them and read them every
