HOW THESE METHODS HELPED A FAILING ENTREPRENEUR INCREASE SALES AND QUICKLY TURN HIS BUSINESS AROUND
Kevin and I first became acquainted in early 2005. A custom builder, Kevin first acquired a passion for tiki bars while on vacation in the Caribbean with his family. He decided he wanted to build them for a living and started a business.
But by late 2005, Kevin found himself in financial distress and was frustrated by all his failed attempts to make a living doing what he loved. The fundamental problem was, he just couldn't find enough customers.
Although his website looked great (Kevin’s wife is an accomplished graphic designer), he was just not getting any orders for his custom-built tiki bar and hut products ($5k and up selling price).
The small amount of traffic he was getting to his website was not converting into customers - and the phone wasn't ringing on his toll-free 800 number.
In desperation, Kevin contacted me. He told me he just had to close his shop, sell off many of his best tools, and that things were looking grim.
But he wasn't ready to give up. He knew the market was there. If he could just figure out how to drive sales everything would be fine...
So Kevin asked me if there was any way I could help him. I had to think about that for a minute, because I already had a demanding full-time CTO job plus my own small online business interests that consumed almost all of my time.
I didn't really know Kevin that well at the time, but I quickly realized that if I didn't help him, most likely nobody else would.
So I decided to have a look at Kevin's website. I quickly noticed Kevin was doing nothing in terms of “warming up” his prospects and building trust in his business — something necessary to sell a $5,000 item.
In fact, there was no sales process in place at all. There was no way to turn visitors into leads that could develop into sales.
How could Kevin expect a consumer to visit his site and just purchase a product worth thousands of dollars — without first building a “relationship” with them?
We made several changes to his website. I helped Kevin write an eBook about making tiki bars, and we started selling the eBook on his website. We also brought some initial traffic to the site using Google AdWords™.
In addition, I wrote the sales page you can still view on the site today. The eBook started selling hundreds of copies per month.
Reading Kevin's eBook had several positive effects:
- It established Kevin as an authority on tiki bar construction
- It generated a steady stream of leads (with some nominal revenue)
- Most importantly, the eBook How To Build Your Own Tiki Bar showed how incredibly involved it is to build a tiki bar, which helped prospects appreciate the value of having a master builder like Kevin do it for them
This eBook attracted and qualified prospects, legitimized the value of the tiki bars and justified the $5,000 price tag in the eyes of some prospects.
A few weeks later, Kevin's 800 number began to ring and ring. It was customers calling, ordering their custom-built tiki bars! Kevin was elated and relieved, but had little time to bask in this newfound success.
Kevin was suddenly so busy building and delivering, he had to hire additional help to keep up with the incoming phone calls, orders and deliveries.
To his delight, Kevin opened a new shop, bought new tools that were better than many of those he had to sell, and now has a thriving small business.
In Kevin's case, the eBook was a great little $20 money-magnet, an offer designed to attract qualified buyers who were interested in tiki bars — some of them serious enough to have Kevin custom-build them a $5,000 "Tiki Kev Signature Bar"!
And this exact same eBook continues to drive Kevin's business today, years later. Kevin is so busy and backlogged building and delivering these tiki bars to customers, I can barely reach him by phone or email during the peak summer season...
And Kevin's now enjoying life, doing what he loves most, and making huge amounts of money — both from the eBook sales and his tiki bar construction business — an offline business that's being fed hot, qualified leads 24 x 7 by his website.
This is just one of many proven strategies you'll find in the Online Leadership Guide.
And as you can see here, you don't need to be selling products online to put these online sales strategies into practice in your business. In fact, these techniques have been used by many traditional businesses that primarily go to market via a live sales force, telesales or even resellers.
So, whether you're selling online, offline or both - you can use the strategies you will find in the Online Leadership Guide into immediate use.
REAL-WORLD RESULTS WITH A “SHOW-BIZ” ENDING
I started working on Kevin's site in February of 2006 — he starting turning a profit by the end of March, and his online sales continue to be great. Kevin has enjoyed all the business he can handle since then.
Kevin was even found on Google by the TV show “Extreme Home Makeover” and had his tiki bar used in one of their episodes! (I’m not making this up…)
Kevin’s site still ranks “first page” on Google and Yahoo, and has received more than 200,000 unique visitors since March, 2006 for the keywords "tiki bar" and "tiki hut". Needless to say, Kevin and his business are now "on the map" - the Internet map.
This makes Kevin one happy guy — waking up every day to new business that just finds him, calls him and places orders.
The reality is, now that everything is in place, Kevin has an unstoppable lead-generation machine feeding a proven sales process.
Obviously, I can't guarantee that you will be on TV, but Kevin's story is a real-world example of a small business selling a premium-priced product effectively, by tapping into the power and scale of the Internet. Since then Kevin's Tiki Bars have also been featured on the Today Show, as well.

PUT MY PROVEN TRACK RECORD TO WORK IN YOUR BUSINESS
At this point, you may be wondering about my background and qualifications to help you.
I retired at the end of 2007 as the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of CITRIX Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: CTXS) Virtualization Systems Group after six years of service. While with Citrix, I was responsible for a broad range of business and technology strategies which contributed significantly to the company's growth to $1.39 billion dollars in 2007 from $425 million in 2002..
As the CTO of the original and largest Citrix group, I was responsible for a $1 Billion business unit. I led Citrix's business and technology strategy, technology architectures and platforms, patents and intellectual property, so I know what it takes to win.
I also served as VP Product Management for three years, devising strategies which resulted in the majority of the company's profits and revenue growth during my tenure.
Prior to Citrix, I accumulated more than 25 years of high-technology experience, including holding key positions at BMC Software over an eight-year period as group and Internet architect for eBusiness Solutions - so I'm qualified to help you tap into the Internet.
I have been involved in the Internet Marketing space for more than 10 years — using the Internet for marketing and selling all kinds of products — to both consumers and businesses.
I have started (and maintain to this day) several businesses, each of which is very profitable.
That’s my summary. I have spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and more than a decade learning what works and what doesn’t when marketing and selling products - both online and offline.

Whatever your title is, you are "in charge" of some or all of your business. This means you are not only responsible, but you are expected to lead.
You know how to manage people and resources (you wouldn't be where you are if you did not).
But you also know that leadership requires knowledge, confidence and credibility that comes across to those you're expected to lead.
Wouldn't it be great to:
- Lead the way by establishing a winning sales and lead-generatin strategy for your business

THERE'S RARELY A "QUICK FIX" IN BUSINESS
Unfortunately, there are many people selling "quick fix" products on the market today. I suppose it's a by-product of the world we live in - where "instant gratification" is often desired.
The truth is, 99% of those quick-fix products simply do not work. In business, there's no such thing as a quick fix - only solid fundamentals that get you consistent results with:
a) the right strategy
b) the right investments of time and resources, and
c) excellent execution against the right plan.
So, if you're looking for a "quick-fix" to your business, this isn't it...
And based on my decades of experience, I can safely say you're not going to find one, either. I know, I've tried most of them already (so you don't have to)...
On the other hand, if you want to know exactly what it's REALLY going to take to have a successful business that consistently grows, and you're willing to do what it takes to win, I'm about to help you do just that:
- Decide how much money you want to make from your business and set proper goals
- Create a plan for achieving your goals
- Get the right players on your team to enable your success
- Put a high-performance Selling Machine in place that turns website visitors into customers
- Bring volumes of the right kinds of traffic to your site to scale your business up
- Invest in stages to grow your business profitably, so it remains self-funded as you grow
Ready to get started building a real, long-term profitable business?
Good. I'm ready to show you how.
A TREMENDOUS VALUE
We thought about how best to make this important information available, realizing time is at a premium for you. So, we decided to let you choose.
The “Online Leadership Guide” starts at just $97 (for a limited time).
I think you will find this to be a tremendous value:
- Because...You will be able to gain valuable knowledge and perspective regarding the structure and operation of your business as a profit center
- Because...You will be able to take action using the information in the Guide, using its field- tested strategies and techniques from both the “corporate” and “Internet” marketing worlds, including putting a proven Selling Machine process into place
- Because...You will be able to save time and money with less experimenting and encounter fewer “blind alleys” that can cost you money and precious time
- And because...You will be able to maximize the profitability of your business, turning your site’s visitors into prospects, and its prospects into customers.
IT'S YOUR CHOICE
What action will you take? As the leader and decision-maker, as usual - it's up to you...
You can do nothing… but that virtually guarantees that nothing will change, and you will continue to repeat the same activities with less than satisfying results.
You can keep “plugging away” … experimenting, hoping you’ll “figure it out” before it’s too late — this is why they call it “The School of Hard Knocks” — and I don’t recommend it.
You can hire a consultant (or consultants)… “farm out” the problem to outsiders, hoping they will figure things out. This is usually quite an expensive option, and one that takes time to obtain enough traction while bringing the consultants “up to speed.”
Or… you can use “success modeling” — imitating the actions of others that have achieved success in the areas you desire to — and that you will find in my “Online Leadership Guide.”
Use the Guide to model your success, leveraging my experience along with the experiences of dozens of other marketing experts I have learned from over the years.
I am certain that you will find the Guide a valuable resource.
