The 10 Rules of Bohemian Marketing
As I write this, I am listening to the Dandy Warhols play Bohemian Like You. Are you familiar? Better go put it on if you’re going to read this.
What does it mean to be Bohemian?
Bohemian – a person who has informal and unconventional social habits, especially an artist or writer.
Is that you?
If you want to be successful in this online space where Barbarians slay Dragons and Wizard pull bags of gold out of thin fucking air…
…it better be.
Case in point…
“Cloud Money: A White Trash Guide to Producing Wealth on the Internet”
It’s a product about creating and selling digital assets.
I launched it for 4 days.
That “White Trash” thing got a lot of people talking. Some good, some bad, but a lot of energy.
And when the dust settled 4 days later Cloud Money, my funny little course with the politically incorrect name had generated $10,426.67.
RULE 1: Be Polarizing
Your own, fully hosted, 100% FREE
email list building web-funnel…
it’s called the DualSqueeze funnel strategy.
But this isn’t just ANY funnel.
It’s part of a free system that
gets OTHER PEOPLE to build your
email list FOR you…
Completely hands free. And won’t
cost you a dime.
That’s all I got! ENjoy the easy list building!
Literally, you can write a 10,000 word epic blog post that solved world hunger and teaches people how to make a million dollars at the same time…
…and the only comment you got was “Aksherinkah” who apparently wants to talk about…soap?
…and wordpress kind of thought that was spam so they didn’t even let her through…
…they were right.
I came up with an idea for my product. A concept if you will. In my niche, there is a company called clickfunnels which is very popular among marketers. They have a lot of brand awareness and they have a strong affiliate program which drives that awareness.
The problem with clickfunnels? It’s fairly expensive as far as monthly expense is concerned. At $99 a month, All the newbies know about them because of their great brand awareness but none of the newbies can really afford clickfunnels from a business standpoint because they have no idea what they are doing yet. If they can afford it it’s because they are spending out of pocket which is not conducive for a great business.
SO I decided I would target this “can’t afford clickfunnels” demographic who knew the power of a funnel (thanks clickfunnels) but couldn’t afford that all in one solution. I wanted to show them how to build an entire functioning sales funnel that would make them money. And I wanted to show them how to set it all up for free.
I decided I would make the product video because I can produce the videos quickly. Much quicker than writing and people perceive the video presentation as having a higher value than a special report.
I’m just wondering if your sick of being hustled yet?
See that’s all I ever hear about when I connect with people on facebook.
They are sick of having to buy all these upsells, and they hate getting lost in these giant sales funnels…
Those giant sales funnels account for over half those marketers revenue.
And the only way to get those marketers to stop upselling you and giving you garbage on the front end is by showing them that you can handle another way.
See I’ve been saying to everybody that my new product Affiliate Command 2017 is “customer-centric.”
But you know that’s really just a nice way of saying…
I recently read a fantastic article over on horkeyhandbook.com by Mickey Gast called ” How to Get Started with Affiliate Marketing.” I thought the article was really relevant heading into 2017 here and it was worthy of your time and attention. I was inspired buy Mickey’s article to do this small infographic that sort of summarizes some of the info in the article.
Hope it helps!
It was called “How to Easily Shorten and Track Affiliate Links.” For a lot of people that are first getting into affiliate marketing, this is something they overlook. I promise you however, that you most definitely want to be tracking your affiliate links. The fact of the matter is, you only have so much energy. You need to know what you are doing that is effective and what you are doing that is not effective. Knowing where your traffic and sales are coming from are a big part of that.
I created this simple summary infographic based on the original work of Melissa. Hope it helps! -Kam
I always tell people, “When you jump in the IM game just understand that you are jumping into the deep end of the pool with a bunch of hungry sharks.” I mean that it’s very competitive. There are a lot of good people and some grumpy ones as well. There are many different personalities and many different ideas on what professionalism is, what good customer service is, and dare I say what good ethics are too.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. It’s a place where wizards pull bags of gold out of thin air and barbarians slay dragons with mighty swords of power. It’s scary and dangerous. Risky and at times downright miserable.
“Success” is a word that is thrown around like some fantasy football trophy and the weak of heart die painful obscure deaths…
But for all that noise…
I love this place.
And that’s it.
Here are 10 articles that I pulled an amazing amount of inspiration and knowledge from. If you are smart, you’ll read them, take notes and then read them again.
If you’re really smart you’ll write takeaway articles on them and create fresh content for your blogs, youtube channels, and facebook groups…
If your even smarter than that…then maybe…just maybe you’ll figure out something even smarter than that to do with them…and then maybe I write one of these articles about you.
I’ll be watching, and waiting. I’m pulling for you…
The only real rule in this game is that there are no rules. No right or wrong ways to do anything. There is only more effective and less effective. Often it is determined by how unique and clever you can be in your approach. So yeah…creative people win. Fearless people win. People who are not afraid to try something outside the norm, fail and talk about it win.
If you can’t be creative, if you can’t be original, if you find it hard to be yourself or express anything that resembles true emotion online…things get harder for you and you are operating at a disadvantage.
Be yourself. Be the one thing that you are the expert at. Write about THAT shit. Make THAT shit relevant to your niche.
Give yourself permission to fail and then let it rip.
So those are my 10. There are many others but these are the 10 I was really feeling today. They all hold a great amount of power in their ability to help you move your business forward.
Go get it!
I’m Kam (aka ZeroFatz) and that’s all I got! I’ll see you in the next one!
