Lets Start again…
Last month I headed to London to do a presentation at the Warrior Gathering where a hundred or so members of the warrior forum had gathered to network and hear various marketing related presentations over the course of the weekend.
To say I was nervous was an understatement… after all, the theme of my presentation was basically that selling products on the warrior forum was a bad business Model…what could possibly go wrong!
Surprisingly it went pretty well, apart from one moment where I made a massive Freudian slip… but I think no one noticed.. (I think the laugh it got maybe means they did!) I mostly talked about how I market and why I do it that way, the focus isn’t on money in the bank it’s on customer satisfaction, get that right and the money will follow.
Anyway I am not here to talk just about my presentation,
Some of the presentations were superb and could be potentially life changing, I know that is an over used cliche but in this case I genuinely believe it. Whilst looking around for some testimonials I came across this post which mentioned The warrior gathering in just those terms.. http://maxalter.com/internet-marketing/life-changing-events-pivotal-moments-and-internet-marketing/ thanks for those great comments Max.
Some of the Highlights for me were:
Michael Christon – I had never heard of Michael before the Gathering, he usually runs seminars that will cost you $1800 to attend where he teaches businesses how to sell. His talk was a fascinating presentation on the psychology of sales, Just using the most basic things from his presentation on your websites could increase your income. I’ve kept in touch with Michael and hope to do something with him later in the year.
Peter Garety – How to create a community of loyal fans – Peter is a Marketer who genuinely cares about his subscribers and buyers and this came across in his presentation, as if I wasn’t nervous enough, I had to follow him on to stage, Peter has gone from nothing to selling over 17,000 copies of his products in 10 months and you don’t do that by being an idiot!
Brad Gosse – Great presentation, lots of great tips and commonsense and also funny (probably keep this one away from the kids!) , I’d give my right arm to be as relaxed on stage as he was, he presented an hour long Q&A session where people could ask him anything about marketing.
Paul Clifford – How to build a software empire,
To be honest I didn’t like all the presentations, Alex Jefferies was very slick and well rehearsed (maybe thats where I went wrong!) but from the minute he stepped on stage I was waiting for the pitch and he didn’t disappoint..he did make some interesting points about sales funnels but it really wasn’t my cup of tea!
I also didn’t want to like Mark Lyford as his marketing style is totally opposite to mine, however he is a really nice guy and I came away having a lot of time for him, I still won’t use his methods but they do work, and no doubt they will work for some of you reading this, it’s just not for me.
The thing is everyone on that stage during the weekend is making a full time income online through one method or another.
Overall the presentations were excellent and it was really great to know that a lot of the marketers there both presenting and attending believe that building close relationships is the way forward, I came away from London feeling more optimistic about the direction IM is heading than when i got there
You can now get hold of all the videos from the weekend, there are 12 videos in all at a great price which is a very small fraction of what it cost to attend.

I actually thought that I spoke a bit fast during parts of mine which i put down to nerves so i’ve added my slides as well so you can go through them at your leisure.
At less than $1.50 a video you really can’t got wrong.
