10 Things I’ve Learned From Building a Multi-Million Dollar Internet Business

Internet Business Guru Rich Schefren

It’s been a fascinating day here at Strategic Profits.

First, I started the day with filming a content video with my Founders Club Membership Director, Chuck Dolce. Basically, Chuck was interviewing me about why I have used free content like my reports to build my Internet business.

In this video, I revealed several strategies you can use in your own free content. We’ll be releasing this video next week, so be on the lookout for that.

Then I got on my Business Growth System (“BGS”) call. During the dispatch, I gave clients four of the 50 or so strategies that I use to write my free reports. That includes the exact strategy I used to make my seven free reports go viral.

If you’re a client, you can listen to the recording when it’s released next week.

But the most intriguing part of my day happened around 2:30 this afternoon. That’s when my Content Director, Kat burst into my back office. She pushed a document I had never seen before in my hands. The document was called…

Analyzing Your Current Reality

Hey Guys,

I hope you’re doing well!

And I hope you’re implementing some (or hopefully MANY) ideas from my recent reports.

Now as you probably know by now, the launch was NOT what I expected.

As usual, I’m writing something up that I think you’ll find very interesting (which you can then turn into business profit).

I don’t want to go into detail here, but what I’m about to reveal will be something that you’ve never heard from a well know marketing personality.

It’s all about analyzing what works and what doesn’t.

And facing the current reality can be one of the biggest challenges that any business owner can have.

So for now, please review the Internet Business Manifesto, The Missing Chapter, and The Final Chapter.

If you study these documents carefully, especially the sections on planning and strategy, then you may be able to discern what’s coming. 😉

To Higher Profits,
Rich Schefren

P.S. The main lesson in this post is that there are probably things in your business that you’re not “owning up to”. These might be problems or issues that you just don’t want to face. They must be addressed. Your profits will thank you for doing so.

Announcing The Final Chapter Of The Trilogy

Hey Guys,

I’ve got some GREAT news. In just a few days, I’ll be releasing “The Final Chapter” of the Internet Business Manifesto trilogy.

I’m ABSOLUTELY convinced that this third and final installment is my BEST work to date. I’ve been showing off the ROUGH draft to some of my inner circle friends and they all think I’m NUTS
to be releasing it for free.

But, like I said before, I’m NOT going to leave anyone out in the cold, even if you couldn’t afford my exclusive coaching.

Now I’d like you to take a minute and think about what has changed in your business since you read the original Manifesto and the Missing Chapter.

It will reveal some DEEP insights into your personal approach to business, and what you need to CHANGE in order to be successful.

So leave a comment on this thread and let me know how things are progressing for you. It will be a good exercise for you, because it will force you to closely analyze your progress over the last three months. It will also help me tailor the remainder of the upcoming “Final Chapter” to address your most pressing issues.

Warm Regards,
Rich Schefren

The Vultures Are Descending Already

So, I finally got some needed sleep.. opened my email box this morning to find:

1) A teleseminar for the internet marketing community about 7 secrets to a million dollar business being used to pitch some sort of program

2) A pitch for a 6 week teleseminar series on how to get the maximum leverage out of your internet business.

Then I opened an email from a friend and he had found two other promotions geared for the budding internet entrepreneur.

Unbelievable. I guess I should take it all as a compliment, but I don’t. I have spent years perfecting what I now teach, and it all has been proven time and time again. These Johnny-Come-Latelys are just opportunists trying to feed on my table scraps – and they’ll end up hurting the people who put trust in them.

So, if you are one of the people who couldn’t afford what I have offered, please do not go looking for some cheap option. Instead go through my free materials, study them, do your best to apply them and I will have more free materials for you. Yes, I will be busy but I would rather do some extra work and get you what you need, even if I give it away, then be at all responsible for you going down the wrong path with the wrong people.

I know what I’ve said here is controversial, but for 2 years I was the only one working on strategy and systems for internet businesses and within 4 hours of my launch ending all of sudden there are quite a few popping up, it really make me sick, and it should make you sick too.

If you read my work, you already know how important a role I feel your business plays is in your life. That’s why I get so worked up about this. The wrong advice could literally set you years back. Be careful, before you take anyone’s business building advice, see if they have testimonials from people your respect and whose success you would like to emulate. Make them prove to you that they’ve been focused on internet businesses – and that they’ve had more than 10 internet businesses as clients.

OK, I am finished with my rant. Now on to some housekeeping.

I have sent emails out to clients on both of my client lists. If you paid and did not receive an email I need to know about it. Just post a comment here using your preferred email address when you sign in (don’t put it in the body of your post) and we will contact you.

My oldest daughter Ava has a tennis lesson so I got to run, but sometime soon I am going to tell you why my daughter Ava (who is 4 years old) already makes more money than most internet marketers do all by herself (no help from her old man).

The Office Is Under Seige…

My office has been under siege for the past two days and it looks like a horde of English World Cup soccer fans were parked here.

Ever since I released my Internet Business Manifesto, the phone has been ringing non-stop, Sheila my assistant has walked off the job three times because people insist on talking to me about the contents of the manifesto, and Debbie the secretary has told us we’re getting more calls coming in than the call center up stairs.

And to really top things off, my wife and daughters saw what was going on and high tailed it over to the other side of Florida for a “girl vacation.”

Our Alexa ranking is a cool 492 today and over 16,612 people have downloaded the manifesto.

It’s been one of the hottest topics on the Warrior Forum and I’ve been getting rave reviews from people like John Reese, John Carlton, Jim Edwards, and many more.

Here’s what Jim Edward’s told his list:

“Most people don’t know this, but 18 months ago I was so stressed out… strung out… and just plain tired, I was ready to quit the Internet at the “height” of my career…

All I did was work, sometimes 16-18 hours a day for days on end… and there was absolutely no end in sight. Yeah, I was making a good living, but my organization sucked and I was trying to do everything myself…

Then I met a guy who helped me understand that I was in charge of a *business* — not the “one-man band” that was getting ready to put me into an early grave. He is one of the main reasons I stayed online and now have a REAL organization that is growing by leaps and bounds with each passing month!”

Then, my server crashed briefly under the number of people trying to get their hands on the report. Let’s just say my bandwidth bill isn’t going to be cheap.

Plus, Dan my right hand man has found hundreds of bloggers from all corners of the web, discussing the manifesto and declaring it “the most important report to be released in years.”

Another one of my assistants, Kate, tells me there are thousands of people emailing me asking questions about the manifesto.

People are asking me what I’m going to be presenting at the Dan Kennedy Infomarketing Summit, and my new partners at the 300 million dollar company I’m working with are wondering why they can’t get through to me.

At one point, 17 people were opting in every second.

No wonder it’s so crazy around here.

But I’m not done. People have been begging me for more details about my strategies.

So I’m going to actually let you create the content for the follow up to the Internet Business Manifesto.

Here’s what I’d like you to do…

Answer the following question…

Q: After reading the manifesto, what is the one thing that you think will prevent you from achieving success similiar to that of my clients?

I’m preparing a video you should expect to see in your email box in the next few days. In it, I’ll try and answer some of
your questions.

I feel like Noah trying to hold back the flood…
