Internet marketing my achievements in 2009
Plus my plans for 2010

Hey everyone

First things first hope you all had a very merry christmas, and I really wish you a great new year.

Unfortunately I was as sick as a dog with hideous man flu, not very good at all infact I still have it.

So with the above in mind I am trying to keep this post short because I basically feel like shit, but I need to write this before the end of the year.

Also I have noticed a few students seem to have given up, and I was sorry to hear that Andrew Vaughan has chucked in the towel, I wish you all the best Andrew.

I know its hard guys but I hope you might read this post, or stop by and read my book ‘newbies journal’ when its done.

Maybe it will give you some renewed motivation.

But my key thing I always have in the back of my mind when I feel like giving up is this quote:

“Never give in, never give in, never; never; never; never – in nothing, great or small, large or petty – never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense”

Winston Churchil 1941

Okay so I just wanted to write a blog post to reflect on the small success I have acheived since July 2009.

I wont write my life story here but just a quick overview for my new visitors.

Go here if you want to see some of my stats and read a bit more about me.

I am married with three children and infact my son was born just before I started trying to make an income online, and as those with children know it can be very hard to get other things done around your family.

I am a postman who works 51 hours a week.

I have been dabbling online trying to make an income for around 8 years.

My computer skills are virtually nill.

I also have had severe confidence issuse in the not so distant past, and believe it or not I do find it hard to do this stuff its completely foreign to me.

Anyhow now lets get on to what I wanted to show to you
learning from both Alex Jeffreys and Dean Hollands, I want to reveal to you my acheivements so far.

I am very proud of my results so far online and truly believe I can take my business forward in 2010.

Also I have smashed a couple of my goals and am really pleased to have done that.

My stats as of 30/12/2009

I have made close to 2k online and on top of this have a potential recurring income of $600 a month from Dean Hollands GTS program.

I set a goal to have 1000 people in my list by the end of the year, I am pleased to say I smashed it and now have a list of 2,400 subscribers.

I have also made $400 so far as I have been building my list, click below to see the business model I have used.

Click here for the business model I am using to build my list

According to Google Analytics since the end of May I have had 6289 visits and 13865 page views.

I have received 520 comments to my blog.

I have a Twitter following of 20,000 spread over three accounts, I use one for building relationships and another to tweet about giveaway events and new blog posts.

I have done a couple of interviews plus testimonials.

Also made many potential JV partners, some of them big time marketers.

I have been to a seminar, and met real life marketers in the flesh. And I have used most of my profits to pay for a trip to vegas to Alex’s workshop at the end of Jan.

There I hope to learn a ton more stuff, get more social proof for my blog, and hang out with the likes of Lee Mcintyre, Mike Filsaime and so many others.

There we have it my friends what a great year. I dont have my plans for 2010 set in stone yet.

But I want to grow my subscribers list to at least 15,000 and I aim to complete my ebook ‘newbies journal’ just after I get back from Vegas. And I would at least like to become a super affiliate.

See my planning has not exactly been great, my main obstacle being having to try and work around my newborn not easy my friends I tell you.

But I hope 2010 will be easier to plan.

I have to learn so much, product creation I need to learn more traffic driving techniques, I need to learn how to use camtasia.

Well I just need to learn.

So I try and keep things simple and what works for me.

But remember guys just keep setting those goals, reach them then move forward, never give up.

Well this turned into a super long post again, sorry its not up to scratch as I do feel like crap.

So look out my my new book ‘Newbies Journal’

So im now off to bed have a great new year my friends looking forward to meeting a few of you guys in Vegas.

Love to hear from you its been a bit quiet lately.

Cheers

Marcus

  1. Hey Marcus,

    Great going, I have some way to go before catching you up especially in the list size but I am getting there and I would have to give a thanks to you for playing a part in that.

    Seeing how you have done over the last few months has driven me on to work harder and focus more on what I have been doing instead of just playing around and going from one thing to the next.

    I can’t wait to have a read of your book when you get it done, It is something I need to knuckle down and get started on doing soon.

    All the best and here’s to a great 2010.

  2. Hey Marcus,

    I was over here earlier and didn’t think you were making another post this year, but I was on my way to come and wish you a happy new year and reply to your previous post…

    But when I got here I find you’ve been a busy bee and made a post, nice one! 🙂

    Your achievements for 2009 are amazing mate, you’ve done brilliantly and I’m going to try my best and catch you up.

    I will definitely be on the lookout for your upcoming book, and I’ll try and be one of the first people to grab a copy!

    All the best for 2010 mate, I hope it’s a profitable one for you!

  3. Marcus,

    You’ve come such along Marcus, I remember our chats online and when we met, your confidence has grown so much,.

    Look forward to catching up again soon Marcus and sharing a beer or two.

    Take care my friend, you may like the video on my recent post 😉

  4. Hi Marcus,

    I am glad to see you are still pushing on and you are making real progress with your list building – that will only reap greater rewards for you in 2010!

    It is a shame that some of the coaching students have fallen by the wayside but it happens – you cannot MAKE someone succeed if they simply don’t want it enough and I know that YOU have that burning desire to do well and make a better life for you and your family.

    It’s been great to see the progress you have made so far and I hope you feel better in time for Vegas as we have a lot of drinking, ahem, networking and business to do.

    Speak soon.

    You’ve moved forward in your business so much in the last few months mate, i’m really impressed!

    Onwards to 2010 mate, i think you have a great year ahead of you and i look forward to working with you throughout the year and can’t wait to meet you when you get your a$$ over to Thailand 🙂

    Speak soon mate,

    It’s great to hear your progress and not giving up!! I certainly haven’t given up and starting to earn a bit of commission from Clickbank. I know it’s an uphill road but I’ll keep going and I hope you are too 🙂

    You seem to have a big list now and the sky is the limit.

    Get well soon and Happy New Year!

  11. Hi Marcus,

    Just thought I would pop by and say happy 2010! 😛

    Wow on your achievements so far, you are really on your way to success this year. Congratulations. I can so relate to the family thing, although I only have one, however I am the main carer, plus take care of house hubby etc etc etc, so not a lot of time online, especially now that little one has given up the avo naps! 🙁

    Good luck with the new year and your future goals. I am sure you will succeed.

    See you back here soon! 🙂

  13. You’re Damn Right To Be Proud !!

    Well done my man, you work hard and you make things happen

    For anyone reading this that thinks Marcus hasn’t worked hard or has had it easy THINK AGAIN!! This man busts his balls to make a better life for him and his family

    Does he find it hard? YES

    Does he do stuff wrong? YES

    Is here he still learning? YES of course we all are

    BUT…

    Does he let any of that stop him? NO not a chance, he knows what needs to be done and he works at it

    ANYONE can be doing this, you just have to stop chasing the quick fix and do what NEEDS to be done to succeed.

    Marcus it’s a true pleasure watching you progress and succeed, it has been great helping you knowing that you will make it happen like many dont bother

    Keep it up bro… Vegas HERE WE COME!!!!

    Which by the way we booked last night… Those damn marketers hit us with the upsells badddd !! hahaha

    Catch ya later

  14. Marcus… if someone isn’t inspired by reading your post they need to be kicked into a coma. You work more hours than I work and I have been saying I don’t have enough time… and you have 3 kids on top of it. No more excuses for me, my man! To all of you out there don’t give up.. most of us give up before the blessing comes! Keep going!!!!

  15. Marcus

    Belated Happy New Year!! Been under the radar for a while due to a move and associated internet connection problems (long story, more detail on my blog) so fallen behind a couple of months annoyingly, but hey-ho have learnt a few bits from the experience and am moving forwards again.

    Just wanted to get back in touch and say well done on your 2009 achievements. Some great stats in terms of commissions, list size and more importantly the feedback thats starting to come in from you inspiring and helping others along the way.

    Keep up the good work and all the best for 2010 my friend.
    Speak soon

  16. Hey Marcus,

    You’ve made some pretty good achievements in 2009 Marcus. You’ve made a popular blog, are building a nice list, and now you are making money online. That’s what you set out to do and it’s finally coming true.

    I think things are starting to happen for a lot of Alex’s students. As you know this is hard work and doesn’t happen overnight but if you stick to it as you have you will see the rewards.

    Later,
    Jeff Sargent

  17. Congratulations Marcus.

    For not giving up and actually doing so well. You’ve been a great friend and partner and at the rate you’ll going. The internet marketing world better watch out for you in 2010. =)

    Regards,
    Alvin Huang

  18. Hey Marcus,

    Great post. Nice to read that things are falling into place for you. I won’t make it to Vegas since I’ll be at another conference in Atlanta but glad to hear you’ll be there since I remember that was one of your goals! Have a drink or 2 for me. 🙂 Good luck in 2010!
