The Ultimate Alex Jeffreys Interview Review

Alex Jeffreys

Alex Jeffreys

If you haven’t heard of Alex Jeffreys, it’s probably fair to say you haven’t been in internet marketing for all that long. He started on ebay and then set up a very successful coaching program which drew notice from big names like Mike Filsaime and Rich Schefren. To look at, think of a Geordie version of Bruce Willis – but chattier.

This guy can honestly say he’s an ordinary guy – born on a fairly rough council estate in Newcastle – and has the tats to prove it.

Interviewer Anthony Tilley is a seasoned internet marketer and he’s popped round to Alex’s house to do this one.
The first thing you notice is the interview is every bit as good as a professional TV interview. Looks to me Anthony was using two cameras to get seamless cutting of his very talkative talking head.

I’ve seen Alex live at one of his seminars with Dean Holland in London and he’s full of energy, totally down-to-earth and credible and instantly likeable. And he’s the same here. Good humored, self-aware and eager to inspire other marketers.

The main take-out here is this: ‘success comes by way of association’. So get a mentor, who’s already a name, or a bit of a name, if you can’t afford ‘the name’.

Alex says his students rode on the back of his success and, in turn, his success grew because his students were successful. Perhaps we all know this, but there’s no harm in hearing it said by a man who practices what he preaches – and has become highly successful in the process.

If you’re looking for ‘ninja’ tactics etc. you’ll probably have to sign up to Alex’s coaching program – you won’t find them here. That said, it’s an enjoyable and lively interview.

Invest In Your Internet Marketing Education… or fade away

Invest In Your Internet Marketing Education… or fade away

How do you like to learn internet marketing?

Did you notice I didn’t say how would you… I’m assuming you’re already doing it. It’s an ongoing process, isn’t it? At times it can feel like a never ending process! The more you do, the sharper your focus – you realise you can’t possibly do ALL kinds of marketing if you’re to achieve results, not by yourself, at any rate.

When I first started I was on Twitter, then Facebook, then writing articles, then on my blog, then writing to my list… and of course forever checking out new shiny products. Darting everywhere just exhausted me and I achieved very little. It was only when I focused on building a list and producing my own products that I started to see any progress at all.

And key to establishing more focus was finding a mentor 1-2-1.

I was at Alex Jeffery’s and Dean Holland’s Instant Profit seminar in London yesterday. Dean gave a very self effacing and modest presentation describing his journey from being a long-term newbie and online failure to a major success. The strategy he outlined on his slides – exactly the one I follow –  looked pretty simple – and it is pretty simple. You’d think more people were using it and becoming successful with it.

But of course like a lot things that look simple, there’s a certain amount of consistent hard work needed before results are achievable.

During the break I had got chatting with a couple of internet marketing friends, who’d turned up for the event. We discussed the issue of trust in some depth – how best to win people over, how to coach people effectively and turn a profit. I mentioned I was getting ready to do a ‘quiet’ launch of my Generous 1-2-1 Training.  They too wanted to do more training, but not 1-2-1. Being more established than I was, they were looking for a more scalable formula for delivering the goods – membership sites, webinars – which are also my long term goals. They understood what I was doing – offering premium value at absurdly low price in order to develop my ‘brand’ and create some word of mouth, which would open doors further down the line.

I described how a number of interested parties had approached me asking for guarantees. And how so many of them looking to get into internet marketing claimed they couldn’t even afford to invest the smallest amounts of money to take their fledgling business to the next level.

If I want to get private tuition for my kids, I have to pay anything from $35-$55 per hour. That’s the going rate. No parent I know would bat an eyelid at being told this is what it costs to get their child some extra tuition. But many people going in to internet marketing imagine that they should be able to get the equivalent for free or mere peanuts. I guess it’s the nature of the internet where so much information is freely available that we imagine an education in an online business should also be free.

Well, of course, you can get a bunch of stuff for free, it’s true.  But if you really want to get a good grade, to use the above illustration of schooling and private tuition, if you want to get a ‘scholarship’ to a place where the top marketers hang out and make the really big deals, you need 1-2-1 tuition.

The only exception to that rule that I can think of is that you grew up around a business at home and the whole thing seems to come like second-nature.

The longer you put off solid 1-2-1 tuition, the longer you will be floundering online. That’s not just my opinion – I know of no successful internet marketers who would disagree with me.
