“Bare Naked Marketing” – Chapter 2 leaked
This is a “portion” of the 2nd chapter in Tim Atkinson new report/book
called “Bare Naked Marketing”
Chapter 2: How I made over $300,000 making bad decisions
(in a 2 month period)
Raise your hand if you feel like you always make stupid
decisions in your business. Raise them high- don’t be shy
Ok for some reason my hand is still raised, but I kinda
need my hands to type. Man I continue to make bad
decisions in my business and it’s really getting old.
Here’s the crazy part: I’m making more money than ever!
I still managed to make crazy amounts of cash even with
making bad business decisions.
Most of the time you don’t know you made a bad business
decision until it already happens or after the dust settles your
like “Umm shit, I kinda fucked that up”
For a while it was getting so bad to the point where
I thought I was losing my marketing mojo. Thank
goodness for marketing Viagra(TM)
Now I want you to learn from my mistakes so you don’t make
the same mistakes I did. Some of the stuff is kinda embarrassing
and other stuff is just plain stupid fucking decisions. Sorry for cursing
-wait no I’m not LOL- anywho
I’m going to share with you a few months of my
business and how I made over $300k while making one
bad decision after the next. The point of me writing this
is to really prove to you that no matter what- you can succeed
online even if you totally screw everything up.
I’m no where near perfect and neither are you- but for some reason
many think you have to be damn near perfect to become a star or
make lots of money.
Let’s go back in my nifty time machine and travel back in
time. If I recall this was the beginning of summer this year(2011)
Let’s call it May-June..
I must admit 2011 so far has been a stellar year for my business.
One huge success after another.. and slowly but surely I started
fucking it up. Here’s how..
Now I’m only going back a couple of months because I’m lazy.
Plus I would need to charge you lots of mullah for this information because
basically I’m going to reveal aspects of my business that are
kinda personal but I know they will help you- So fuck it!
I’ve launched many brands(products) this year and around two
months or so ago I launched a course called FB Conspiracy. To
be honest the only reason I launched this course was because I
wanted to be the first this year to launch a product with the word
conspiracy in it..
Side note: I know, I know that is real gay, lame or whatever you want to call
it but in the “make money niche” there are some words that just
sell-especially on Clickbank.. and the market is funny and some
I already planned to launch a course called Click
Conspiracy in a few months and word got out about the name.
This is a corrupt business and they’re are many haters and people
talk like little bitches. I mean the day after I bought the domain
every single variation of that domain was snatched up.. So for
example: CashConspiracy.com, AffiliateConspiracy.com, MobileConspiracy.com,
TrafficConspiracy.com and you name it- every cool variation was taken- and
I started freaking out..as if there was some real conspiracy going on!
For the record the name Click Conspiracy wasn’t even my idea. I had
lunch with some friends in my inner circle.. I told them I was launching
a product called ATM Explosion and they laughed at me. LOL!
Kinda funny looking back on that lunch as that name is pretty fucking lame.
One of my friends is a marketing genius and he just started spitting out
domain names left and right. I heard Click Conspiracy and right there on
the spot bought the domain from my iphone and that replaced ATM Explosion.
So naturally I was pumped about my new name for my upcoming Clickbank
launch because I had some tricks up my sleeve..more on that later.
So rewinding back a bit I had no intention to launch FB Conspiracy before Click
Conspiracy.. I just got paranoid when the word got out.. not sure exactly
how that happen and really I don’t give a shit anymore..even though one
day at my house when my boys were over I remember raging about it,
swearing and threatening the whole industry as I thought someone was
out to get me.. Boy I’m a real asshole sometimes!
My friends calmed me down and at the same time fucked with me a little
about it:) Can’t blame them I was an easy target for a prank or two!
It was about a month before the CC launch and so I had this crazy
idea to launch a course with the word conspiracy in it..The whole
thing is so stupid!
Lesson #1: Clickbank names suck and are stupid!
So as I was sitting in my office searching for the perfect set
up for an eternal launch with the word conspiracy in it I checked
FBConspiracy.com- To my surprise the domain was available
Ha Ha Suckers!! Didn’t think of that one Muahahahahaha
It kinda made sense as most marketers actually suck at marketing
and have no idea how to market on Facebook. Me on the other hand know
a thing or two about FB PPC. There’s a good chance you’ve seen
my mug all over the IM space on FB.. That’s because FB PPC is
one of my favorite ways to drive traffic to offers and plus I know my shit…
To the point where most of everyone who was anyone was coming
to me for consulting on FB PPC- no one could get their ads approved
and keep them approved. I knew how, knew the loopholes so I decided
to release my secrets to a select few.. but it didn’t work out that way
Lesson #2: Sometimes it’s better to keep secrets..A Secret!
I created FB Conspiracy in 2 days. That actually shocked myself
as that means I was actually working hard:) I decided to make it a
WSO. It was a hit! Many say it’s the best FB PPC course ever created
and we sold over 2500 copies in a week and made over $60,000.
I did a live case study during the release of FB Conspiracy of me creating
FB ads going straight to the Warrior Forum WSO thread!. Secret 1 exposed
and a new trend started.
Want to get your FB ads approved every single time- Launch a WSO and send
FB ppc traffic to it and watch the cash roll in. I taught this live upfront and
other ninja ways in the course. I revealed my exact targeting, images and campaigns
to do this. The result: 100′s of ads with my sexy mug all over FB from my affiliates
promoting FB Conspiracy and then 100′s of other Warriors promoting their own
WSO’s- end result of that- the avg CPC for the targeting I revealed went through
the roof and therefore made it more expensive for all advertisers to bid.
Lesson #3: Teaching paid advertising tactics for one niche will saturate the
market fast.. and fuck up your own campaigning in the process- oops!
I mean I couldn’t even get my ads to show anymore as all my students and
everyone else who bought my course was clogging up the advertising space.
Many top advertisers in the IM niche were not happy with me- umm oh well(shrugs)
A few days after the launch I get an email from the FB ad team to contact them
about my course. Long story short they gave me a warning. I almost lost the ability
to advertise on FB and that would have crushed my business. Now don’t get it twisted
as what I taught in the course was awesome.. but at the same time- some was a little grey hat.
The freakin ad team bought the course it was crazy- I think the haters ratted me out!
Damn you haters!!
Still many FB advertisers are using my white hat tactics in the course and making
bank so I’m happy but it was definitely a lesson learned.
I accomplished what I wanted- the whole IM niche knew about FB Conspiracy
and a new series of a brand name was re-born.. Now it was the perfect set up
for Click Conspiracy.
