Isn’t this the ultimate dream? Making money while we sleep… or sitting in our underwear at the kitchen table (probably not a good look for me). Here’s a rave from David Osborne who did just that. David and I started the ‘make money online journey’ around the same time. We were actually in the same mastermind group where there was more players than winners and the short story version is I left that group, took what I knew and went to work. David and I became friends through our similar journey and teamed up on getting his website and product to the market.I have finally achieved my dream of making money while I sleep. You told me when you first achieved ‘the dream’ of making money while you sleep “It is the ultimate feeling. To make money while you sleep or as the old line goes – make money sitting at the kitchen table in your underwear is absolutely the best” – and you were right… it is the ultimate! You were also right about the journey – it’s a hard one that so many supposed ‘guru’s’ make out is easy and there are so many pieces to the puzzle and I am just so grateful for your help through every phase. So many people make it sound so easy yet I learnt the reality is the same as any business – it takes effort and to fast track it all, well – that’s what you brought to the picture, the right marketing knowledge, web strategies and clear thinking. From the sales letter critiques to the website design and set up with the auto responder automation and all the marketing advice through to all the social media marketing and positioning techy bits. I’ve just broken the $15,000 of sales in a single month. I’m now looking at how I can now take that to the next level so thanks for the call and those new leveraging ideas.

Hi Peter, I have done nothing to my Scope Drafting Website since you set it up, besides following your advice of posting regularly. I had not even realised that my Google Page Rank had increased until you brought it to my attention. Although that would explain the huge increase in web based enquiries I am getting. This is totally thanks to your website design. Thanks again Peter. Nathan Peart Scope Drafting and Design firstname.lastname@example.org

Just had this email in from James, thought you’d appreciate the irony. “Don’t sell and they’ll buy!”Hi Peter, Just thought I’d drop you a note to let you know what has been happening with my web site – http://www.productivitycoaching.com.au. Originally I thought that it would be for selling my services, I envisaged using adwords etc. to generate traffic and gain clients from that. What I have noticed however, is that it is working in a very different way. When I meet someone and give them my card or a complimentary session coupon, or even do a mail out or any other promotion locally, they generally go online to get a good feel for who I am and how I can maybe help them in their unique situation. It helps give me credibility as there are a lot of relevant articles & videos to check out that give valuable information WITHOUT TRYING TO SELL. It is a brilliant relationship building tool that actually sells by not selling! How about that! All I do is keep adding material and subscribers and let what is now my new process work. Thanks again Peter, Cheers, Jim Bryden Business Development Manager & Productivity Coach Mob: 0421 210 444 email@example.com
I just got off the phone with yet another rapt client. Jim’s site is only 14 days old, as in like the domain name was only registered 17 days ago – It’s a brand newie. The reason I’m clarifying that it because quite a few of our clients have us rebuild their site which means the domain has been around for a while and Google has probably been there before, albeit not often. You can find out easily if your site has been ‘indexed’ (visited) by Google! … and even how many pages are indexed. I had another client who had a domain registered for 9 months, they had a static holding page with their contact details and it got left like that for another 8 months. I always like to do a bit of homework on a site before I change even one thing – Hey, you can’t measure a big improvement unless you have a starting point and a bench mark right? It turns out that even after 8 months this site had not been indexed; now that’s sad. Now, me being the show off that I am we took that site from obscurity, and I mean total website no-mans land, if Google doesn’t know the site even exists then how can it show up in any search results… ummm, it can’t! Anyway, from obscurity to having 8 pages indexed within 5 days (there was only 8 pages at that stage) and I’ve just checked it now and all 40 pages are indexed… and only 3 days ago. I can’t give you the URL ‘cause the client watches his traffic closely and he’d kill me, sorry. That’s why the “Smarter WebSites” model is so awesome. Have a listen to what Jim says on this audio, he’s a very happy man let me tell you. Back to the pages index check – put this in the Google Search Bar (not the address bar)
site:www.yourdomainname.extension (obviously your domain name with the extension) you will then get the results displayed like this in the top right corner so for me that’s
site:www.peterbutler.com.au These are my results Results 1 – 10 of about 78 from http://www.peterbutler.com.au. (0.04 seconds) So Google recognize that I have 78 pages. Don’t give me grief about my own site, I know, a few leaks here and there. It’s like the proverbial mechanics car – always left till last. As a side note, my own sites get indexed every day – the Google Gods have smiled upon me! That’s what the “Smarter WebSites” System will do for your site. So for Jim – not only is he Page 1 in Google but position 2 and 3… Click here to listen in to Jim and I, you’ll pick up a tip on lead generation for your own site – “Like why else would you have a site but if not to generate leads, and then qualified leads at that? You’d be amazed at how many people forget that!
Yes, through savvy marketing and the very best is word of mouth marketing, or a referral, where someone is essentially saying, “this person solved my problem….you should go to them so they can solve yours too”. We all like referrals but most business owners are doing nothing proactive to get them. In a Recession, that is very dangerous. That’s why you need to blow your own trumpet as often and in as many ways as you can. Who read the West Australian Newspaper last week? (Sorry to those outside of WA but do read on) John Hughes of Skippers, the huge multi brand multi yard car dealer in Victoria Park ran a 2 page spread absolutely chock a block full of testimonials. Forget the reams of car pictures and prices that all blend in to a blur of sameness of price competing car yards. Think about it! What’s your biggest issue when you’ve been in the market for a car? Trust! We all know the one about the ‘used car salesman’ right! Making sure you don’t get a lemon, that you don’t get ripped off and you want good after sales service. John tapped straight into his prospects biggest fear and tackled it head on. If you can remove the fear that people have around doing business with you… reduce those reservations… even remove that risk entirely… then just watch your business prosper. I know I’ve done a few posts now on testimonials but get over it. If you missed those you can read them here http://www.peterbutler.com.au/tag/testimonials Here’s the question “Are you thrashing all of those good stories about you as much as you could?” If you’re not then you’re selling yourself short. Don’t be lame either, get pictures, audio, video, before and after, facts and figures too. If you don’t blow your own trumpet who will? Speaking of thrashing and blowing your own trumpet here’s what Tony Inman said about his site ONLY 1 Week after we went ‘Live’ with his New “Smarter Websites” website and Smart Marketing System. Remember, this site is only a week old so don’t give me grief. I’m just being totally upfront and transparent here. We’ve yet to plug in Tony’s lead generating and marketing system.Hi Peter, I just wanted to say a quick thank you for the work you have done so far on our Planet Inn website. In today’s world it’s often hard to know who you can trust, especially when it comes to something as important as your business website, which is really the equivalent of the ‘shop window to the world’ of your company. In my case I was particularly wary, having had a bad experience once before with a web designer, but having met you in person, I felt confident that you would do a good job for us. Just to be on the safe side, I called a few people who knew you and they were gushing in their praise of your professionalism. I am happy to report that I have been extremely impressed with the thoroughness of your approach to our website project, with your ability to listen to us – the clients, and to adapt and modify anything necessary to suit our unique needs. I know that my former web hosts also caused you no end of technical problems, which you overcame with consummate ease. No doubt they didn’t want to lose the business! When I saw that the home page of our website had a header explaining that the site was under construction, I became concerned about the length of down-time during our peak season. I was equally astounded and exuberant when you had the bulk of the website up and running the same day! Obviously building a website is a never ending journey of tinkering as the quest for excellence is an illusive beast. I have seen enough already though to know that we have formed a mutually beneficial partnership that will stretch into the distant future. The layout of the site is terrific. Your knowledge of how to make use of modern social media trends for commercial effectiveness is an attribute of paramount importance to keep pace with the tech-savvy generation who now form the bulk of our market profile. On the one hand I would be delighted to sing your praises, should you require any references for prospective clients. On the other hand, I don’t want too many people to pull you away from the great job you are doing for us! That of course would be to deny the world! Anyway, once again thank you and keep up the great work. I’m really looking forward to working with you on our other website as well once we have fully evolved this one to the levels we have targeted together.

I had invested $18,000 on websites before I met Peter, none had generated any leads let alone turn a profit. The facts: I now obtain one to two leads per day and I am on target to for 100% business growth this year. In dollars: That is a start-up sole operator business going from zero to $390,000 pa in a couple of years. You would be seriously crazy not to work with Peter and his team.

Hi Peter, Just a quick update on how many enquiries we’re getting through our website now. It’s only been 2 months since the rebuild and I didn’t expect this, and certainly not so soon and consistent. This is our ‘off’ season but we’re still getting 5 solid leads a week. These enquiries aren’t just the normal enquiries we get. These people are asking the final “just before they book” sort of questions. What you call “warm” leads I believe. This will be our best year yet by far and all thanks to you. You were right, you did build us a lead generating money making machine. Thanks so much buddy. PS: Your next holiday is on the Island.
