And we’ve arrived. The last video in Section 1.
I want to talk really briefly about how to keep this free training river a-flowin’ – it’s the best way I could think to put it. Because as much passion as I have about this project, I can’t make it happen without you.
And I want to make this really brief video, I don’t want to take too much of your time because I know you’re anxious to get jumping and start learning, but I really need to cover this first. It’s super important.
There’s a reason nobody’s done this before. It takes years to develop proficiency and all of these skills especially when you’re talking about all three core competencies.
It’s taken me… I’ve been working as a full-time internet marketer now for several years and I started studying it when I was 16 – I’m 29 as I start recording this – so it’s been 13 years to develop a lot of this stuff.
And I just didn’t really feel… even last year, I’ve wanted to do Free Internet Marketing Project now for like three years… even last year, I just didn’t have the knowledge yet to really feel confident in my ability to teach people.
I could teach people how to make money in affiliate marketing, I teach people how to make money through conversion optimization, but the other tracks, I just didn’t know how to teach.
And in the last year, I’ve learned so much more about conversion optimization, eCommerce, drop shipping; I’ve made so much more money through all of those different things; learned how to get labor in the Philippines – really good labor for $3 an hour.
And now when I thought about it again and I revisited it recently, I thought, yeah I know enough to really give people well-rounded internet marketing skills set and offer options rather than just say, “You’ve got to do affiliate marketing.”
Not everybody wants to do affiliate marketing. Some people want to do eCommerce, drop shipping. Not everybody wants to do SEO. Not everybody wants to do video marketing. But I wanted to be able to teach enough to give people options and guide you down those paths.
Forgive my French here but high-quality training takes a shit ton of time to put together. Even just preparing the introduction video and this first section – which is like 30… well no, it’s like 40 or 45 minutes of content – has taken me an entire work day to put together in the really high-quality format that you see.
And I feel like the Wizard of Oz back here like you’re behind the curtain. There’s a big green screen back there, you see lights on both sides, not to mention how much equipment goes into these things. So it definitely takes a ton of time.
And at the end of the day, what I’m doing here at Free Internet Marketing Project is kind of a gamble. To a degree, it could almost be classified as an experiment because it comes down to you whether or not this is going to be successful and that is not an over dramatization. That is not an exaggeration. It really does come down to you as to whether or not F.I.M.P. keeps growing and stays up to date.
So I want to go really quickly through my very firm commitments to you before I talk about what I’m going to ask of you.
My very very firm commitments are: I will never ever ever promote a product or recommend a product just because it’s going to make me an affiliate commission. You see that a lot in this industry. It is something that I am committed to never doing. Ever.
So I want you to know, if I’m recommending something, it’s because you either need it for your business or it’ll save you a ton of time over free tools.
Which brings me to my next point: I will always show you how to use free tools. It’s a commitment that I have to you at Free Internet Marketing Project. If there are free tools to accomplish what you need to do in your business, I will show you how to use them.
I’m not just going to show only premium tools that you have to pay for because they make me commission after commission after commission. That’s just not how I want to do this.
This kind of summarizes the first two points: I will always prioritize your best interests above how much money I make through this project through affiliate commissions. So just know that. You may not trust it fully at this point but it’s something that I’m very firmly committed to so just keep that in mind.
I will never recommend something… I will never do something that is not in your best interests just because it makes me money.
And I will never spam you, I’ll never share your information with someone else, I’ll never rent my list out for someone else to blast, and I will never let a wolf in the hen house.
Meaning that if someone is not fully vetted by me, I don’t know whether or not they made their money in the trenches or if they made their money just creating products, teaching people how to make money – which blows my mind. This industry can be – again pardon my French – but such a circle jerk at times. It’s ridiculous.
So I’ll never bring anybody like that into the Free Internet Marketing Project. Those are my commitments to you.
The only things that I ask of you and the first one is the most important. If I recommend something that you need for your business, the perfect example is web hosting. Everyone in this industry needs a website. I don’t recommend super overpriced web hosting just because it gets me the biggest commission. I’m not going to recommend $30 a month web hosting – which exists – because it pays $200 commissions. It’s out there. That’s not what I’m going to recommend to you.
So if you need web hosting, I ask that you buy through my affiliate link which will be clearly marked on the lesson. Just know that. I am very firmly committed to your best interests and to not recommending things just for the sake of the commission. But when I do recommend things that you need or a premium tool that saves time that you want for your business, please buy it through my affiliate link. That’s the only thing you did on this list that would be enough to keep Free Internet Marketing Project going.
The other thing I’d ask is that you register as a member. It makes it easier for me to track how people are interacting and engaging with the training here. I can’t do that for unregistered members. I can do that for registered members.
It’s totally free to create an account. It gets you access to the free Facebook group – that you can get support from other members and myself when you ask questions or you get stuck somewhere – and also just kind of other handy tidbits of information, golden nuggets there throughout the week.
And you can track your progress here, see where you are in the courses, how many videos you have left – stuff like that. And you also get access to some exclusive content like question and answer, Q & A sessions – stuff like that.
So there are a lot of benefits. Just please create a free account. You can do it all over the members’ area here. It’s really easy to do.
The other thing I would ask is if you know someone that is pursuing internet business, please recommend the Free Internet Marketing Project to them. That’s it.
You don’t need to blast it on Facebook or send it out to everyone in your email contacts. I’m not asking anything outrageous like that. If you know a like-minded person that is pursuing internet business and wants really really good training, please tell them about F.I.M.P. Please tell them about Free Internet Marketing Project.
And the last thing I’ll ask: I want to build a very special community here at Free Internet Marketing Project and that means helping each other and supporting each other in that Facebook group. So take some time here and there throughout the week if you have it. If you see someone asking a question that you know an answer to, please just pop into the Facebook group and help each other out. I’ll be in there too helping whenever I can – whenever I’m not recording training or managing my existing websites and internet projects – I’ll be in there helping out, too.
So I just ask – I want to create a very special supportive community – so please take some time each week if you have it to spare to help other members.
That was four things and in fairness, if you only did one of them, it’s seriously… Please help me stay funded by purchasing things you need through my affiliate link. But, that’s it. I would really appreciate it if you could do all four of those or if you could do two of them – whatever. But as long as everyone here does that, I’ll be able to keep F.I.M.P. growing and up to date and most importantly, 100% free for the life of the project.
So congratulations, you’ve finished Section 1. I wish I had like confetti cannons that I can fire off – but I don’t. I wouldn’t have room for them in here with the lighting and the green screen and the table and the monitors, anyways.
So you’ve finished Section 1. The only thing I ask going forward to – before you start jumping around in the training – is to please please please watch everything in Section 2.
You may see ‘mindset’ and you may go, “Oh I don’t need any of that woo woo crap.” That’s not woo woo crap. It is essential to your success. It makes you probably ten times more likely to go through that mindset training… It makes you ten times more likely to succeed – if I had to approximate it – in this industry and in your future internet business than if you skip over it.
So please go through it. It’s very important even though you may not get it right now.
And after that, you’re free to jump around to your heart’s content. You’re not really intended to. The course was built sequentially for a reason so you’re meant to go Section 1, Section 2, Section 3, Section 4. But if you feel like you know what’s in Section 3, you’re welcome to skip around. There may be something in there that you miss so do it at your own peril. I may teach it differently than you’ve learned it in the past.
But just please – most importantly – go through Section 2 before you start jumping around the training.
So that’s it. And that is end of Section 1. You’ve finished it and it’s time to jump in and start building your internet business. I hope that this project amounts to something really meaningful that helps you change your life. I truly truly do.
So in the meantime if you have questions, feel free to post them in the Facebook group. If you’re a registered member, you get access to that for free. And I will be seeing you around the Facebook group and see you in the next video.
