Addressing Online Business Success Fundamentals in the Wake of Deactivating My Facebook Account and Fan Page
Magnify Your Business Magnetism with EFT Tapping Will you lose business if you deactivate your Facebook account like I did? As you know from yesterday’s post, I deactivated my Facebook account and Fan Page two days ago. Gone are 5000 friends, 1100+ followers, and 7000+ fans. And I’m not missing it at all. To be honest, I’m also kinda tired of controversial topics. I have pretty much decided people need to have their own dismal experiences to understand a lot of what I’m teaching. So I’m thinking to focus the blog for the time being on helping people create effortless money and fitness, which I hope you all will enjoy …
On that note, we had a great entrepreneurial question from Kundan in the comments section of that post. He asked:
“But don’t you get most of your clients from Facebook?
Or do you have other venues of getting clients such as your blog and mailing list? Thanks for clarification.”
Thank you for the question, Kundan.
First, let’s be really clear where I get most of my clients and customers. … Drum roll … Repeat business.
Let me say it again: repeat business.
Ever since 2010, I have been a six-figure USD entrepreneur. In 2010, I made six figures in this business working only evenings and weekends while I also had a six-figure day job. Yes, it’s true. It does not matter how controversial I have been, or how many people I have pissed off and alienated by speaking truths that many do not yet want to hear. It does not matter that some people who never tried my products or services wrote incredibly nasty things about me all over the internet. It does not matter that at times my website traffic has been extremely low. In the first six months of 2012, I made a quarter million dollars while traffic to my main website was only 1800 monthly visitors. I did it without any physical infrastructure and with no leverage. Most people who run internet businesses will tell you that result is impossible. It’s not. I did it.
And the secret was: repeat business.
People often come in to my method for the first time with HUGE resistance, kicking and screaming and pleading all their excuses. Some of them hem and haw for days or weeks before they finally How to Attract Money with EFT Tapping. But once they try it, many of them LOVE it. And when I say they LOVE it, I don’t just mean they write me great testimonials, which they do. I mean they then proceed to spend thousands, tens of thousands, and even over a hundred thousand dollars with me … Why? Because my method works where nothing else in the entire world of transformation does.
Last month, one of my repeat customers purchased FIVE of my 30-Day Challenges in one sale. And another repeat customer purchased THREE all at once. It doesn’t take a lot of sales like that to add up to a real income.
In the past two days since I deactivated my Facebook account, I’ve felt a huge relief of no longer frittering away my time on people who don’t understand and appreciate what I offer. And in those two days, I made almost $6000 in new sales. How? Repeat business. All but one of those new sales came from customers who have bought from me many times before.
So am I worried about “losing business” on Facebook? Not really. My business doesn’t come from Facebook. It comes from God.
That’s part of what I teach people. Don’t EVER become dependent on one source of anything, whether it be money, sex, love, healing, or anything else … God is the ONLY reliable source of anything. And He can work through non-Facebook avenues just as easily as He can work through Facebook. In fact, if you ask me, it was God who was giving me repetitive signals over the past few months that Facebook is no longer where my energy is best spent.
New leads can come from anywhere. If someone is meant to find me, God makes sure they find me. It may be via some totally random internet search on Google, or someone mentioning my name half a world away.
Some people do succeed on the internet by building tons and tons of traffic. I prefer to go deep with people. I prefer to over-deliver on people’s expectations so that they come back to my offerings over and over and over again.
At some point here, a much larger portion of the world will be ready for what I teach. In the meantime, I teach those who are already ready and understand the value. And I thank God every day for repeat business.
Hope that answers your question :)
