This post is taken from my friend, John Yeo blog.. You can visit his blog at www.JohnYeo.name. I saw this email interview of my personal and good friend Dylan Loh’s interview who happens to be the boss of my gf now… And there’s something about this email that i wish to blog about to you and hope you’ll learn something from this blog post.
Go on.. Scroll down to read the interview by Dylan… In case you guys do not know who Dylan is, he is the creator of a few successful product launches including ClickbankProfitMachine, SecretArticleProfits and his latest SecretGoogleTactics and all these products are easily a 5 figure launch.. He’s a big name in the Internet Marketing world and if you do not know who he is, you ought to pay attention to his emails blast and to what he says about making money online.
Hey John, I’m Dylan from Singapore. I would count list building, affiliate marketing and email marketing as my main strengths.
2. Share with us your first success in Internet Marketing and how did you do that
I first tasted ‘real’ success with the successful launch of my product ‘Secret Article Profits’ www.secretarticleprofits.com I was doing article marketing pretty hardcore at that time and I knew that many people were starting to use it as an income generator.
Fact is article marketing has been around for as long as Internet marketing as been around but it was just at around that time that people were suddenly jumping onto it.
I knew there was a hungry market for it and I created my product specifically to cater to that.
3. Share with us one obstacle which you have overcome and you have learnt alot from it
Build relationships first and foremost. This holds true not only for your customers but also with
your subscribers, your joint venture partners, your graphic designers etc…
When I first started out, I was naive and didn’t think too much into building long term relationships, needless to say, I rubbed a few people the wrong way, luckily, I was quick to realise that building a long term relationship takes time effort and most of all, sincerity. Focus first on the relationships and the value you can provide and then think about the money – not the other way round.
4. Share with us one mindset tip you would like to share with others, especially those who find IM hard
This is something that I’ve repeated over and over again and I shall repeat it here once more. That is TAKING ACTION. Looking deeper into that, its taking FOCUSED ACTION. That means concentrating on one task, one method, one product at a time. But most importantly, DO SOMETHING.
5. Share with us about the uniqueness of one of your products.
I thought SecretGoogleTactics.com was pretty good, it combined teaching both Adwords and Adsense in one product instead of splitting up both into separate topics.
6. One project you are working on right now and you would like my readers to know
Its top secret Well, if they really want to know they can go to www.profitingtips.com, they would be the first to be notifed!
7. One last tip you want to share with my readers
This would be pretty much the same as number #4. Take action and never give up. I’ve been around the IM industry for quite some time as you have been to John. And we both know, at the end of the day, the people that makes money are the ones that don’t give up and the ones that ends up as skeptics are those that gave up too soon too quickly.
* End of Interview *
If you notice, Dylan speaks about the 2 most important factor to success in his short interview which i think every successful internet marketer would agree with him and that is to NEVER GIVE UP and to TAKE FOCUS ACTION. Every success internet marketers have all gone through this phrase of business before they eventually succeed. I’m a strong believer of mindset and that with the right mindset, you can be sure that you can achieve anything you want, even things that you never dream that you could achieve.
There’s a saying that goes “A one handed golfer with the right mindset can win a two handed golfer with the wrong mindset” haha not sure where i heard this from though but i cant agree more with this sentence. Mindset is everything.
One more factor which i feel personally is important is DESIRE. How much do you really want to succeed and why do you want to succeed? If you really want something and is desperate to get something, you will definitely find all ways and means to satisfy your deserperation and desire.
Think about it… How much do you want to succeed? Know the Why and the How will come naturally…
