What Startup Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Shady Internet Marketers

Guest Blogger: Dan Martell

Do you hate shady internet marketers as much as I do?

Thought so… truth is, most of them are just peddling crap.

What’s crazy though, is some of them are KILLING IT online.


Because they figured out how to sell.

Ethics aside, they figured out how to get massive amounts of traffic to their offer, and present in a way that gets people to part with their money.


You betcha… but before you judge, ask yourself how they’re doing that?!

What can you learn from them?

When I was building Clarity, I realized I had some of the most talented and integrity driven internet marketers on our platform.

I discovered them because they were driving a ton of calls at a high price point.

When I reached out to learn more about their business, I was blown away with the sophistication of their marketing / sales programs.

They nailed it AND there was a system for how they thought about the business.

I then started implementing some of their approaches in Clarity, and we got the results.

That’s why I wanted to share this with you …

… it’s the 7 strategies startup entrepreneurs can learn from some of the world’s best internet/ marketers.

Here’s a short-list of the most powerful things I learned:

– Funnels: Up sell, down sell, cross sell

– Promotional partnerships: JV’s, affiliates, launches, etc..

– Focus: One customer avatar

– Copywriting: landing pages, email, blog post, native ads

– Email marketing, goodwill, don’t stop

– Paid acquisition (any channel, remarketing, etc)

– Earn the right: value first, build trust, make an offer

Be sure to watch the video to learn the in’s and out’s of each of these strategies.

My bet is that if you implement any of these 7, your revenue will grow.

Insanely grateful to have you part of the community!
