A few months ago, I spoke to Marie Forleo and Laura Roeder about their upcoming B-School launch (which closes in just a few hours) and decided I was not going to promote it because they could not promise me a reciprocal mailing for my Money Map launch.
Ugh, writing that feels icky. But, it’s the truth.
I got caught up in the comments of a team member who was insistent that I should only promote if they agreed to promote and decided that team member was right.
So I saw B-School come around and the campaign was simply kick ass.
Marie and Laura, as usual, brought it.
But, I was caught up in preparation for Eden and I had already decided I was not going to promote, so I didn’t pay too much attention to what was going on.
I did notice though that many of my friends were signing up and I was a little bit kicking myself for not having promoted it because they could have been signing up under my link, generating a hefty affiliate commission for my money map.
Then, I got back from Eden and saw that there was still one more day for enrollment in B-School and the offer looked amazing. I also saw that it was a great complement to my Money Map program and that the affiliate commission was enough to allow me to give my whole Money Map program away for free to anyone who enrolled via my link.
So I decided to swallow my pride, tell my ego to step aside and give my community a gift.
Enroll in B-School using this link and get my whole Money Map program (sells for $1997) for free OR for those who already have Money Map an hour of time with me for integration and the creation of a custom action plan ($2,500).
Seven people have already taken me up on my offer. And at least another 7 contacted me and said … “Oh, I wish I would have heard about this 24 hours earlier – I just enrolled!” I imagine there are at least another handful out there who did not contact me.
So, a $10,000 mistake, at least.
Had I promoted B-School right from the beginning, I would have possibly had a $25,000 payday just from sending out a few emails to my list about a great program that compliments my work.
But, I let hesitation and ego get the best of me and I lost out as a result.
The reason I am sharing this with you is because I want you to learn from it. And so I can remind myself for next time.
1. Promote programs, courses or products that will help your community, even if you are not getting a reciprocal mailing in return.
2. Offer a valuable bonus, if you have something that will complement the offer.
3. Do not let your ego get in the way of promoting other people’s Great Work.
4. When you see something that will help your community, share it with them and use your affiliate link so you can make great money leveraging what others have created.
5. And never, ever, ever, again let ego get in the way of sharing something that is such an all around win.
So just to recap … when you enroll in Marie and Laura’s B-School (and hey, it may seem like it’s just for women, but it’s really not if you are a smart guy) using this link, you will receive my entire Money Map to Freedom program, which sells for $1997, OR if you already have it, an hour of private time with me to integrate it all and create a custom get into action plan. Either way, it’s a huge win and I strongly recommend you dive in so you can get me, Marie and Laura all working on your business this summer.
It just does not get any better than that.
