How-to Get More Clients, More Profits and More Success

Share

How is it that some people are able to become almost overnight success stories in their industry?

How come some people can reach a level of visibility in their niche that they are deemed “famous” and an “authority”?

And most importantly, how come many professionals, freelancers, coaches, authors and business owners work their ass off, do everything they are told they should do, buy products etc… yet can’t seem to break through an invisible wall or ceiling in terms of how many clients they get, how much they can charge, and their overall success?

FREE WEBINAR Reveals the Answers; Reserve Your Place NOW

The above are the questions I have been dedicating my life to recently, my intrigue was ignited when in an interview last year, someone asked me how I had managed to become an industry leader, well known around the world, successful and extremely well connected in such a short space of time…

I didn’t know the answer… but I did know that I didn’t follow the normal path, nor did I follow the advice that most business owners believe.

In fact, I had accidentally created a new path and a new set of principles, and it seems, that for the most part, they were vastly more powerful than the norm.

A wise man once told me to “observe what the majority are doing, then do the opposite“, so I suppose it is therefore no surprise that most professionals and small business owners remain the best kept secret in their industry, and are unable to break through the invisible wall… whilst others seem to glide through it effortlessly.

So what is the solution?

Well, I have been working for a loooooong time and have identified 11 key myths that most professionals believe that are potentially killing their business.

I have been speaking to professionals from all over the globe, with the goal of digging even deeper into this mystery.

    Going the opposite route will get results, as long as you don’t ostracize. When you’re getting into totally unique territory, this could be a fine line.

    Well you’ve certainly done an excellent job walking that line Dean! Really looking forward to the report!

    Everything that is status quo today was once fresh and new. But now it’s the same as everything else so our brains ignore it. We’re sorting incoming information inputs for what’s new and different. What we create for today’s info-overloaded and hyper-connected audiences must be REMARKable. I didn’t delete your email, Dean. I’m busy–in the midst of an essential project–but I read your blog post. Now I’m taking the time to comment. If you can codify some of the actual *essential* principles, and make them duplicable (not reliant on *being you*), I’ll be happy to give you more of my attention (and money if you produce something EXTRAordinary). ~~ Kirk out.

    One of the things that immediately stands out about you (and I only stumbled across your name less than a week ago) — is what I call your penchant for “constructive bullying.” It is quite inspirational despite the fact that I’m usually immune to this sort of thing. There’s nothing new age or mystic about the way you write; in fact, your writing has the ring of common sense while simultaneously making me scratch my head, asking myself, “well, David, if it’s such common sense, why didn’t you think of it yourself?” I think it’s because I’m thinking too mainstream which is what I need to change during this global downturn. The other thing that is attractive is your use of blunt language combined with what feels like a sincere effort to help others without blatantly asking people to fork over cash. This tells me you are so confident about what you are doing that it will ultimately lead to people forking over compensation that is rightly yours not just in appreciation — but because of your work and ability to distill and break down seemingly complex ideas in plain English. Yes, of course, send me your report. Can’t wait. Best, David Kusumoto, San Diego, California, USA.

    I was actually rereading Purple Cow last night and realised that I’d finally hit what you and Seth are talking about when it comes to being REMARKable. Even if I didn’t consciously engineer it this way… it still works like a charm. I may be a slow learner but I get there…

    Hello Dean:

    Today I got an idea that I hope to make into my first authority website. Of course I will want to stand out from the crowd as soon as possible. So I would appreciate receiving your new report.

    I also echo the request that Kirk made “If you can codify some of the actual *essential* principles, and make them duplicable (not reliant on *being you*)”

    Such a report would be a Godsend

    Dean,

    The advice “observe what the majority are doing, then do the opposite“ used to sound very difficult one to follow.

    However, when one really starts to observe the crowd, you understand that majority never become overly successful and get what they are dreaming of or dreamt of. It’s much, much smaller part of the population that is a bit more persistent, a bit more committed and a bit more curious about things than the rest.

    Thus, “observe what the majority are doing, then do the opposite“ isn’t THAT difficult – simply check the Internet, magazines, your own network to find the most successful individuals in what you want to do and then model these people who have a track record of being good in what they do better than others.

    The more I observe rich and successful people the more it seems that mostly they do a lot of quite ordinary, quite fundamental things. What seems to be the difference is HOW they do it all.

    Really looking forward to your report, Dean!

    PS. Yeah, when you follow the crowd, what do you get… the droppings…

    Hey Dean,

    I’ve got a bad case of antireportitis (too many, mostly crap or regurgitated info).

    Then I got your email and thought Mmmm Dean Hunt – Killer Bunny guy – must be worth a read.

    So bring it on mate.

    One thing though. Make sure that the report will self destruct in 2 hours, if not read. So if we don’t use – we lose.

    In internet marketing it is not difficult to create yourself as an authority. By that I don’t mean the website, I mean the person.

    It sneaks up on you and you don’t realise until people start asking your opinion and advice.

    Worse case scenario is if you can read faster than the other guy and always be one page ahead in the manual, then you can be an authority figure ;-) )

    BTW – which university are you the Dean of?

    Graham

    Hi Dean,

    Found you by chance from Bill Glazer’s site when I ordered his new book yesterday and thought I’d look you up. I am totally new to the world of internet marketing and at 53 finding it all a bit confusing!

    HOWEVER … I’ve been reading loads of late trying to get to grips just so we can re-vamp my husband’s website – and yes, get it up the Google ladder. I’m learning the importance of that!

    My husband’s an accountant and work comes mainly from solicitors … and have you seen their web-sites? Equally staid and boring! I’m sure that ‘professional’ can also mean different: maybe even amusing, interesting, something that gets people coming back. Would you go as far as ‘outrageous’?

    All confusing to a newcomer – but very exciting! If you think I qualify for a copy of your report I’d love to have one. Meanwhile I shall continue to read your blog. Many thanks!

    You said “Perception = reality, especially online”
    If you want to be a one-hit-wonder. Otherwise, you better have something to back up that perception.

    From what I see, You Dean, give the perception of a very, very smart down to earth marketer, and you unlike many others, do back it up with smarts.

    I think a major part of it is relationships. And more specifically, relationships with a few key people. I’ve seen people go from zero to hero just by getting to know a handful of people. Social proof is one of those things Cialdini talks about and I think it’s important here too.

    I’ve come to believe that entrepreneurs are a special breed that don’t give up and look at “failures” as “success in the making.” That definitely sets us in a smaller set of people. It’s a mindset that looks at everything from different perspectives rather than accepting defeat.

    For example, I now realize I have to completely redo my website with a different objective initially even though the long term may remain the same. Despite the long hours of work and my obcession with making it work, it has to change.

    It’s exciting that I dominate Google for the specific keywords “Employ The Unemployed,” and that visitors spent an average of almost 5 minutes on my site viewing an average of 4 pages, but I haven’t given them a clear enough action to take. The traffic that is coming is from various sources but is much too small, only 125 total.

    So we re-assess and move forward taking a different perspective on “Employ The Unemployed” perhaps focusing on tools for making money rather than focusing on the political issue. Or….? In any case, looking at the issue upside down, backward and obtusely should develop an “outrageous” approach that “surprises and delights” viewers into action.

    The same old call to action has to be changed. In other words, by doing things differently than what is expected by the market, we draw attention. Then, by supplying the market with surprising value, we open the store for loyal support and customers.

    James Collins and Jerry Porras coined the term “Big, Hairy, Audacious Goal” (BHAG)in 1996 and more recently in the book “From Good to Great.” To be great and break through the invisible barrier, we need to be surprising and outrageous. Just like you’ve always said, Dean! Can’t wait to hear more from you about the myths.

    Dean, I have often thought about this topic. One example that always sticks out to me is the immigrant who comes here seeking a dream, starts with nothing, and in short order has more than most of the people who have lived with the opportunities this country has to offer all their lives. One of the comments mentioned perceptions. I think not only the perceptions of others are important, but equally important are ones own perceptions of what one is capable of. Robert Schuller asked the question “What would you do if you knew you could not fail?” I wonder if similar results don’t come from the mindset “what would you do if you had nothing to lose?”

    I’d love to see your report. Thanks for the insight.

    Hi Dean,
    I just signed up for your email alerts, and I read your first email today. It was quite insightful and very funny. Many thanks for both enriching my knowledge about buzz marketing and for giving me a good laugh.
    Regarding your real case study whereby a friend of yours challenged you to get a random article on Digg’s first page, kudos to you for accomplishing a seamingly daunting task!
    I just went to Digg today (the second time that I have ever gone to this website) and saw a first page article entitled, “Digg Starts Nofollowing-ing Links That It Doesn’t Trust.”
    Does this mean that if one did manage to get an article to the first page of Digg with the methods that you have talked about that this person wouldn’t be able to use the backlinks from Digg to improve page rank, etc. in the search engines eyes?
    I realize that one has to keep providing great content with their website or blog as you discussed in order to keep people visiting, but if one did make it to Digg’s first page, if one can’t use the backlinks from Digg, then can he or she expect to continue to get a lot of traffic? And how does Digg decide who it trusts and doesn’t trust? My apologies if you have already addessed this with your community.
    Regards,

    Tom
