The Greatest Internet Marketing TRUTH NEVER TOLD Created by Rex Harris and Joe Sansoucie in support of our members at: TrafficSurge.biz Copyright 2010 – TrafficSurge.biz – All Rights Reserved Legal Disclathe purpose of building a list but it may not be sold for profit.ee incentive for … and now, The Greatest Internet Marketing Truth Never Told There's a question that hangs in the air, of the Internet marketing industry, that has been passed down over the years but has NEVER been answered in full, undisclosed truth. Many have tried to answer it. Some have answered it in part only. Others have pretended to know it but the truth has NEVER come out because there's ALWAYS a reason to hold it back. The question, in question? What is the SECRET to making money online? Those who DO know the CORRECT answer to this question DO NOT want you to know it because to give you the answer is to create competition and LOSE YOU as a willing, paying subscriber. All of the top GURU marketers know this and they take full advantage of you, and the answer, by NEVER sharing the WHOLE TRUTH with you. This way they can continue to profit from the answer by distributing partial truth for pay. You might be asking yourself, “are Rex and Joe just blowing smoke here or do they really know the answer to this question?” We know the answer and we are going to GIVE you the answer, today, without cost or obligation, in pain staking detail. Once you have finished reading this report failure will only be an option with a decision, on YOUR part, NOT to take action. While the answer is simple through basic query, the answer, while not complicated, must be given in sequence of concept because the answer is about UNDERSTANDING how things are done. If we break the ANSWER down in bare simplicity, it would sound something like... “The Secret To Making THE BIG Money Online Is To Solicit Others To Build Your List, Your System And Your Empire For You.” In other words, the key to making great money is an ARMY OF AFFILIATES. Don't just run off, now, and think you have it all figured out, because we have told you just enough to go out and get your butt kicked (kind of like they taught us in Army Basic). Making this happen takes more than just knowing the basic answer to our age old question. The truth of the matter is this... … the key to making five figures per month, as an Internet marketer, comes through a sequence of correct actions and events that lead to the development of your own system, whatever that system may be. It could be a big safe list, text ad exchange or other Internet marketing resource, product or service, but the KEY is that IT MUST BE YOUR OWN! Furthermore, you must put in the time required to sell yourself before you will EVER sell a system. Unless you are willing to get on the phone and talk to MLM leads all day, for the rest of your life (and hope that's enough), the only alternative is to step up, step out and brand yourself as an expert Internet marketer. This is easier said than done. And, unfortunately, most will never take this report seriously enough to realize its' incredible value. We are LITERALLY handing you the keys to the kingdom without having to spend a penny for the info. Most people will continue to take short cuts and believe false GURUs, mentors, coaches and sponsors who offer “sneaky, underhanded” methods of marketing that “supposedly” generate fast results. Just a quick FYI, the only reason they tell you they can get results faster is because they know that you'll spend money if you believe them. If you have the right formula, however, and are willing to invest the time to put it together and see it through (because it's going to be slow going in the beginning) then you probably have what it takes to become a five figure earner. Fortunately for you (and unfortunately for everyone else), you won't have to worry about a lot of competition because the majority of the people that attempt to step out and make a name for themselves usually quit or give up because they don't see instantaneous results. Thus, the doorway of success is wide open for those who have the guts to walk through the fire and reach the promised land that awaits. If you are the type of person who is willing to walk through the fire then we're not going to hesitate. Here's the formula listed as the BASIC TRUTHS of Internet marketing. Let's examine, first, the DOMINANT TRUTH concerning BUSINESS in general... You CANNOT Start A Business For FREE! The Internet, especially, has been riddled with lies concerning the ease of starting a business from home. It's made to sound, in most circles, much more glamorous than it really is, in the beginning anyway. Advertisements targeting lazy people with “get rich in only minutes per day” don't share the fine print that says, “but in the first 1 to 3 years you will have to work your ass off... and oh, if you do it wrong, you could lose your house, car, savings and even your marriage.” Not only has it been made to look easy, it's been told that it can be done for free. This is a LIE straight out of the pits of Hell. You CANNOT Start A Home Based Business For Free. Nor, can you join a business opportunity and expect to market and advertise, with success, free of charge. Nor can you start a business, treat it like a hobby and expect exceptional results. In ALL walks of life, there is no business without people. You can't treat your customers and clients with half-ass regard and expect they will continue to buy from you. If you don't believe us, just ask Donald Trump or Ross Perot. Donald Trump built his empire through investors. Ross Perot built his fortune on his last $1000. So, if you have downloaded this report expecting us to show you the easy way out, you might as well quit reading now, because it's not easy. It requires work, patience, commitment, dedication and sacrifice, especially in the beginning. The up side is this... building a business from home, using the Internet, will cost you tens of thousands less than building a business off line! Starting a business from home is only expensive when you do it wrong. When you do it right, by committing to invest in the RIGHT TOOLS and INFORMATION, before you start, not only will it cost less, it will return GREATER dividends, in the future, with less work, creating MORE FREEDOM! Now... let's look at the TRUTH about advertising and marketing yourself and your business using the Internet! The Sales and/or Sign Ups You Are Looking For Are Found In YOUR Personal Mailing List! This is the first basic truth of Internet Marketing. As an Internet marketer, your number one priority must be the building of your list... ANYTHING ELSE IS WRONG! Advertising your affiliate links directly does not work for the selling and/or promotion of products/opportunities/services DIRECTLY to your traffic resources. If you want to convert traffic you must first convert the traffic to a lead (lead =prospect, opt in) by grabbing their attention with something “THEY NEED to be successful” FIRST! “Internet marketing is the art and science of empowering, communicating and building a relationship with another human being based on THEIR wants and needs, NOT mine or yours.” Val Smyth – Mentors In Motion Founder You must utilize a free incentive (GIFT) that you can give away (targeting your niche market) that answers a question or solves a problem for others first. This is the key to generating opt-ins. Opt-ins are needed to build your PERSONAL list. YOUR PERSONAL LIST is the resource you will use to promote your SYSTEM once it has been developed. Once your system is in place you can build any business opportunity and/or sell any product you wish. People will buy from you because they trust you. Why? Because you have already GIVEN of yourself before asking of them. In this report we will be addressing two types of systems. The first system is your marketing system and the second system is your personal, branded business system with affiliate program. To build a mailing list you will need a marketing system. A marketing system is the combination of a splash and/or lead capture page and an auto responder. These are two tools, along with a web hosting account, that EVERY Internet marketer must have. Think of it like this... … back in the days of the great gold rushes, millions of people dropped everything in pursuit of the fortune buried in the hills. In order to get the gold, though, it required the right tools. Shovels, pick axes, hammers, buckets and other tools were required if you planned to stake your claim successfully. No one in their right mind was going to just head for the hills and start digging for gold with their bare hands! Yet, MOST Internet marketers believe that they can make the big money without the right tools required to harvest GOLD from the Internet. If you want to strike gold then you need the right tools. If you aren't willing to invest in the right tools then you shouldn't be marketing online. Without the right tools, failure is the ONLY outcome. *Remember, you CANNOT start a business for free and expect great results. You must be willing to invest in your business if you want it to return a profit. Therefore, if you are going to follow this report to the letter, you need to acquire a marketing system. You can do so by following these links: Step 1: Click here for instant access to everything you need to utilize the information contained in this report. For only $44.95 per month you will be able to manage your business from one location with access to an unlimited auto responder, web hosting, splash pages, lead capture pages, conference room and more. All of the training you will need to set up and utilize these tools will be provided for you also. The Second Truth Of Internet Marketing: You Must Sell YOURSELF Before Trying To Sell Anything Else Most of the people who are working to make money online do so in fear and trepidation, and justifiably so. It's unfortunate, but there are a lot of people, in the world of Internet marketing, who have no problem screwing you to reach your wallet. Therefore, in order to build an awesome mailing list, the incentive that you create to give away must GIVE BIG! Giving big does several things for you as an Internet marketer... • It brands you as someone who is here to help, not to hurt, securing your reputation as a “hero” and not a villain. This is very important. • It generates trust within your audience that forms a relationship. • It brands your name to your face and generates positive feelings within your audience when they hear your name, see your picture or talk with someone who speaks fondly of you. • It sets you up to build a business brand because the trust and relationship have been built first. There are a ton of people, in this industry, who are taking the “fake it until you make it approach.” That approach is ABSOLUTELY WRONG! There are serious Universal consequences when it comes to lying and deceiving others so don't do it. Take the time to do the research, absorb as much knowledge as you can and then begin the sharing process. Learning to use the social networks as a traffic resource is vital to the building of your reputation and your brand. Therefore, if you plan to make the big money then you will also need... • A Professional Blog – this is part of the reason why you need to learn to set up and manage your own hosting account. A blog on the Internet is like a profile to a social network. The Internet is a network and your blog is your profile to the Global Online Network. Your blog is an electronic representation of you. They are easy to search engine optimize for the purpose of indexing based on your name (or unique brand) which is very important for the development of credibility. It's very impressive when someone goes to Google, types in your name and finds that you have the first five pages dominated. • A Facebook Account - Facebook is a huge source of traffic for the targeting of any niche market so it's a network in which you will want to participate. Driving traffic to your blog, from Facebook, is easy when you are providing REAL content to any interest group. • A Twitter Account – Again, Twitter is another huge source of traffic where you can easily reach any niche market. Sending the right Tweet can bring thousands of hits to your blog in a matter of minutes. Therefore, it's a must have for any serious Internet marketer. Selling yourself is crucial if you ever expect an army of marketers to sell you and your products and/or services. Affiliates are an army of marketers who go to work because there is POTENTIAL money in it, for them. The results will be HUGE if that army of affiliates believes in you and what you are doing. It's much easier to keep them committed to your mission if you have treated them to incredible value that they have been able to use to turn a profit first. If your audience does not believe in you then any system developed, by you, will be short lived. The Internet marketing industry has too many “villains” and is in serious need of some “heroes.” By making the choice to become a hero, and not a villain, your financial future will be secured through your actions. By the same token, your future can be destroyed by your actions. Therefore, the choice is yours. Taking the high road is ALWAYS the best option! The Third Truth Of Internet Marketing: You Must Become An Expert By Acquiring The Right Knowledge. It's totally unreasonable to think that you can simply join a business opportunity and expect thousands of people to follow you into that opportunity just because you say it's great! WHO ARE YOU that I should follow your advice? If I had a dime for every time I heard someone tell me “well, my sponsor is making $10,000 per month!” I might be retired right now. Who cares how much money your sponsor is making? How much are you making? Can you show me how to make that much? How much AM I going to make? As you can see, the same old recycled lines bring nothing more than resistance and objections. Therefore, it is in your best interest to become a “customer support specialist” … an ambassador, if you will, to the Internet marketing community. This is the required mindset if you wish to establish yourself as an expert. You can lead people ANYWHERE you want them to go when your opening question to them is “how can I help you?” Now, let's explore the need for knowledge. In my experience, most of the people I talk to are only interested in the fast, easy way to wealth. I've got news for you, it doesn't exist. Just ask Donald Trump, Bill Gates, Andrew Carnegie or a host of others who have gone before us only to realize that they had to put on their THINKING CAPS and tap into the creative resources to bring about the wealth desired. As one of my senior pastors used to tell me back in the street ministry days, “Leaders Are Readers!” Anyone who has gone before us, in the way of wealth, has taken the time to read important books such as... • Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill • The Master Key System by Charles Haanel • The Science Of Getting Rich by Wallace Wattles … and, as an Internet marketer, there is a host of other great books by top Internet marketing legends like Ewen Chia, Yanik Silver and more. NOTE: All of the authors (mentioned above) and their books, are featured in the video and resource center at TrafficSurge.biz. MP3 downloads are also available to all of our Platinum members. Absorbing knowledge takes time just like building a business requires planning. Part of the planning that goes into your business SHOULD be the acquisition of knowledge so you can do things right, from the start, and eliminate struggle and failure. Following the formulas of those who have gone before is a great way to expedite the road to riches. It might seem like it's taking longer, but I'm here to tell you, from experience, that trying to figure things out on your own takes much longer, costs more money and leads to more frustration and failure. This is one of those situations where “the road less traveled” is the fastest road to prosperity. You need to study and become a student of this industry. You must learn it's bells, whistles and formulas and then apply them. You must also set yourself up to teach this knowledge. Passing this information to a team of even three people, on the first level of your down line, could be the key that empowers them to make you all wealthy beyond your dreams. Therefore, if you are serious about being one of the 3% who actually find success as an Internet marketer then it's time to take action. Using this link, visit Traffic Surge and create your account.

Internet Marketing Truth Number 4: You Must Embrace Incentive Based Marketing Back about three years ago I (the author of this report) went through a bit of a slump as an Internet marketer. Up until that point my Internet marketing career could have been best defined as a “feast and famine” experience. My first four years in business online were huge. In total, my former partner and I generated more the a half a million in total sales. Then, things got a little ugly for a while. At the pinnacle of what we'll call “the ugly days” I was blessed with the opportunity to fall under the wing of a mentor who was able to help me turn the page. I'll never forget the night it happened. It only took one sentence to turn everything around for me. That night, he told me “Rex, you have to become the Oprah!” I INSTANTLY got what he was trying to tell me and the light came on. The very next day I began to rebuild my entire marketing strategy online. I worked night and day for a week and a half. By the end of the second week I had generated $8000 in sales, $4000 of which was mine via commission. Allow me to explain what “become the Oprah” meant to me... When you think of Oprah, what's the first thing that comes to your mind? For me, it was AUDIENCE. I was missing my audience because everything, up until that point, it was all about selling for me. I made a lot of money selling Kirby Vacuum Cleaners, back in the day, so sales came naturally. Unfortunately, the Internet market place was no longer receptive to direct sales practices, like it was around Y2K. Back then, people trusted the Internet. It didn't take long before people realized that the Internet could be as dangerous as dark alley if they turned the wrong way, so things changed rapidly. What Val taught me that fateful Sunday night was that I need to start putting the needs of others before my own. I need to stop worrying about the money I was going to make and go out, do my due diligence, and share the knowledge I'd gained, over the years, with people who needed to know. Zig Ziglar once said “if you help enough people get what they want out of life, you'll get everything you want!” Jesus Christ said “do unto others as you would have done to you.” You'll notice that in both of these statements, the benefit of others is FIRST! When I began to treat my mailing list audience differently, they became responsive again. It didn't take long before we were filling conference rooms with 50 to 60 people, four nights per week. Once our webinars were completed for the day, my phone would start ringing within minutes and people would be lined up, with credit card in hand, because they wanted what I had been given. It was a beautiful thing for EVERYONE, not just me. Therefore, it's of the utmost importance that you understand just how important incentive based marketing really is. To get the great results you must give. From this point on, if I were you, I would NEVER send another ad for anything other than a free informational incentive (report, video, ebook, etc.) again. All of the traffic you wish to attract must be driven to a place where people can enter their name and e-mail address, into a form, and then be added to your list. Once this has happened, your auto responder will send them the requested information. Whatever you decide to offer, GIVE BIG! Give value! Answer questions and solve problems. As Val also told me on the night of my big break through... “be the pain killer! People are in pain. They are hurting for money and they need someone to show them the way.” Internet Marketing Truth Number 5: The REAL Secret To Making Money Online Is To “Build An Army!” Now you might be thinking to yourself, “Rex and Joe, why would you guys willingly tip your hand like this?” It's simple... our mission is to help OTHERS succeed before ourselves... that's the REAL TRUTH concerning success! The Bible teaches it, the Master Key System teaches it and even the wealthy practice and teach it... Making the big money isn't about TAKING, it's about GIVING! If you carefully examine every legitimate GURU marketer, in the world of Internet marketing, they all have one thing in common... a web! (Web = System) GURUs are like spiders. They build their web, bait it with the right incentive and then the people willingly fly right in. Before I set myself up for a boat load of hate e-mail, I'm not saying that all GURU marketers are evil because that is not the truth. There are a couple at the very top, in fact, whom I admire and respect greatly. In fact, Joe and I are using everything we've learned from them to educate you and build our empire. Let's look at this “spider web” analogy. Think of an Internet marketing leader whom you respect. Does this person have a system in place? If they are using the Internet as their primary source of marketing and exposure, then you can only answer the previous question with an overwhelming YES! You, most likely, subscribe to their list or belong to their system if you've been around the industry for any length of time. Chances are you've probably bought something and promoted something for them, as well. Now, let's take that a step further. When you see their products, services or systems advertised online, who's links are filling the address bar in your browser? AFFILIATES! That's right! Hundreds, thousands and even tens of thousands of affiliates are spending their money, time and marketing resources to build the list and system of SOMEONE ELSE! As a smart marketer, the development of a system that will put others to work for you MUST be part of the overall planning for your success. Why? Let's look at some numbers... It has been said that there is a 97% failure rate in the Internet marketing industry. However, every one of the 97% who fail ALWAYS TRY before giving up. So, even IF all of those who are going to fail (hundreds of thousands per year) find your program and tell only three people each... 3 tell 3 = 9 : 9 tell 3 = 27 : 27 tell 3 = 81 : 81 tell 3 = 243 : 243 tell 3 = 729 : 729 tell 3 = 2787 : 2787 tell 3 = 6561 : 6516 tell 3 = 19548 : 19548 tell 3 = 58644 : 58644 tell 3 = 175932 : 175932 tell 3 = 527796 : 527796 tell 3 = 1,583,388 peolearn how to (and or) make money online! There is a percentage of thesey to people that will do nothing, a percentage that will look and a percentage that will join you in your endeavor. Those who join and successfully convince others to do the same? Those who join will go tell more people! Remember, this isn't counting the few who are successful. The few who are successful, who decide to get on board with what you are doing, can reach numbers that STAGGER the number we generated above. What generally happens is that someone OTHER than you is benefiting from all of that traffic and advertising. In most cases, IT'S you doing the work for someone else and it's someone else who is cashing in because the work you are doing is Building THEIR List... … and, as we have already determined, it's the LIST that DETERMINES the SUCCESS and it's SUCCESS that equals the FREEDOM we are all looking for! Sadly, most people are WORKERS, they are not LEADERS. This is why this works... but here's the HARD TRUTH: In essence, what we are telling you to do here is to TAKE ADVANTAGE of the people who are going to fail and UTILIZE the work they are going to do. It's an ugly truth, but a truth nonetheless that you should understand how to use to your favor. Many people, once they have been confronted with this truth, will have a difficult time using it to their advantage. Some will even feel guilty for thinking about using it. Most WILL NOT USE IT because it FEELS morally wrong and they will allow FEELINGS and EMOTION to govern another life decision which is why the world is going to Hell in a hand basket, in the first place. YOU WILL NOT FIND SUCCESS IF YOU ALLOW FEAR TO GOVERN YOUR CHOICES! Remember, this is one of those cases where we will implement a NECESSARY EVIL, so to speak. Your mission, as a TRUE Internet marketer is to reach as many as you can with the TRUTH if you want to build a successful business. It's about putting the success of others before yourself. That's the KEY that opens the door to the Kingdom. You need to understand and utilize EVERY channel you can to share the truth that leads others to success even if it means exposing, and then utilizing, a weakness for the greater good of all. Remember, that THIS TRUTH will ALWAYS reach the hands of ALL of those who fail because YOU are distributing it to all of those who may potentially tell someone else. They will GET THE KEYS, but MOST will never put them in the door and turn the lock. Utilizing affiliates, even though we recognize that the majority will never find success is THE ONLY CHANCE we have of helping the FEW who will actually do something with this information. What's EVIL about this is when the majority of the GURU marketers also recognize this TRUTH and take advantage without providing the ENTIRE, UNDISCLOSED TRUTH to their audience. What we are doing is the equivalent of fighting fire with fire. Think about it... how many people would respond to a message like... “We've got great news! There is HUGE Money To Be Made Online. Unfortunately, 97 out of every 100 of you ARE GOING TO FAIL in trying to find it. Good luck anyway!” That's the truth, but you don't see headlines written like that. Headlines paint a much prettier picture of success, in most cases. Pictures of flying cash, boats, cruises, yachts and life luxuries grace the headlines and images on most sites. Those sites have been created to entice based on greed, lust and selfish desire. Talk about a web of deception, yikes! When the foundation of a business has been built upon LIES and DECEPTION the ONLY possible outcome is its' demise. Think about all of the business opportunities that have come and gone over the last 3 years alone. You can't bait people with LIES and expect a positive outcome. The Universe DOES NOT allow that. Deception and evil are short lived. Yes, they may do some long term damage, but somehow, someway, they always fall eventually. The Bible teaches that “the foolish man built his house upon the sand. Eventually it crashed!” So, there you have it... the complete, undisclosed truth concerning Internet marketing. Our hope is that you take this information and make a decision to share it with as many as you can, turn a profit and build the life you've been dreaming of. This is only a fraction of the information we offer through Traffic Surge.
