This weekend I went to the First Annual Warrior’s Forum Internet Marketing Event. There I hobnobbed with multimillionaire Internet marketing gurus like Willie Crawford, Matt Bacak, Dr. Mike Woo-Ming, Marlon Sanders and Jordan Hall.
I was surprised and delighted to find that the telephone is very much alive and kicking in the online world. None other than Matt Bacak (who became a millionaire at the age of 27 and is currently is running three (3) multi-million dollar companies) advocated lead generation through your web site followed up by a phone call to close the sale and maximize profits.
Willie Crawford, (founder of The Internet Marketing Inner Circle, and Executive Director of The International Association of Joint Venture Brokers and host of “Willie Crawford Teaches Real Internet Marketing, a BlogTalkRadio show) spoke about the best ways to find joint venture partners. The number one slot was taken by speaking with someone about your project face to face. He recommended that at events like the Warrior Event to be on the lookout for potential joint venture partners. The number two slot was, guess what? Picking up the telephone and calling potential joint venture partners and introducing yourself. Sounds like a cold call to me.
To paraphrase Matt Bacak: The telephone has been a powerful marketing tool for decades. It continues to work.
