THE BEST-KEPT MARKETING SECRET!
by: Anthony Stillwell


You've been kept in the dark for far too long.

It's time you understand that the easiest and most profitable way to get things done in business is to get help. It's all about the contacts you make. Trying to make it alone and fighting against the odds is what you've been taught, but it's wrong. You need help.

How often do you take the time to build relationships online?

The answer to that question will determine how far you get.

I constantly search out new friends and business associates
because I know that there will come a time when I will need or
want their help and vice versa.

When you actively seek out relationships with others in your
market you automatically open yourself up to opportunities that
the average business person would routinely miss.

Examples:

* There are a lot of products I didn't have to buy because their
creators who happen to be friends of mine gave me access so that
I could help them with any design and marketing strategy
questions they had.

This also puts me in a position to work with these same marketers on future projects which is always a good position to be in.

* Joint Ventures are extremely easy to get going because I can
always contact the people I've worked with in the past to do more deals. Having to constantly search out new people to work with costs you time that you could have been using to make money.

* There are many services that others routinely pay for that I
get for free because of the contacts I've established over the
years. My contacts know that when they need ME, I'll be there.

That's why they'll perform services for me without the need for
money exchanging hands. They know that when my area of expertise
is needed... I'll gladly help.

The right relationships mean more money. You see having contacts
just for the sake of having them is worthless. You need to make
the *right* contacts. You need to build relationships with people who can help you get to where you want to be.

But... in order to do that YOU must have something valuable to
offer in return. There's only so much a friend will help you do.
You will need to offer a valuable service in return for the one
YOU want from your contact.

That's just the way it works.

If you don't have the money to get things done then you need to
get creative. You don't have to do everything yourself. Search
for people who know how to do what YOU want done and strike up
a conversation with them.

Find contacts here for starters:

See if you can make a deal. There are actually people out there
who love to create products, but don't care too much for
marketing and people who love marketing and don't care much for
creating products.

There are things that YOU do that other people either don't know
how to or care to do on their own. This is where you step in
and form a mutually beneficial relationship.

An added benefit of making the *right* contacts is that even if
you can't find someone to do what you need done for free, some of your contacts will know where to get quality work done through "hidden" channels at prices not revealed to just anyone.

You have to be on the "inside" to get this kind of info.

Bottom line: Once you have good contacts in place you can easily
get projects off the ground while those who are trying to do
everything themselves struggle for months if not years. It's the
difference between having to spend $1,000 to get something done
and having your contacts offer to do the exact same work for
almost nothing.

I guess it really comes down to one question... "Do You Want To
Put Yourself Ahead Of The Competition Or Not?"
