This is from my “GET TO KNOW ME” email campaign.
SUBJECT: [DAY 1 of 10] Who is Zach Miller?
So you’ve heard a little bit about me, you joined my list – you want to learn more, right?
And perhaps you want to learn why I’m ‘the guy to follow’. And I don’t blame ya..
So, who am I to tell you all these marketing marvels & secrets? Well, let me tell you I’m no genius – I’m actually a college drop out (University of South Florida to be exact).
But let me tell you where my story starts..
So there I was, looking over my teacher’s shoulder. It was just for a moment, amongst the dozen other tabs and windows open, but it was clear as day. A Bank of America statement with just over 150K in it. All of it from internet marketing..
That’s when I knew this was something I had to get into. I’m sure you saw something similar too, didn’t you?
Make more money, work from home in your underwear, fire your boss, travel more..
The good thing is, IT IS ALL TRUE. The bad thing is, you have to work for it.
Now, not even hard. More like “hard” for the next 60-90 days, and then rest on your accolades for the next couple years..
Does that sound fun? If so, then you’ll love to hear the rest of my story..
STAY TUNED FOR DAY #2 when I reveal the secret my wealthy computer teacher gave me..
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 2 of 10] The secret to success online
Yesterday, I talked about my computer teacher with $150,000+ in his bank account.
Rewind back to the beginning of the school year, high school. That year, I had a teacher named Mr. Killes. He was kind of quirky. His teaching method: Everyone is an idiot [starting anything] and that’s perfect. Clean slates to learn the ONE and ONLY method you need to succeed. I laughed when it popped up on the projector screen.
But contrary to my laughing, 32 kids learned how to take apart and build any computer, fix any motherboard – you name it. How did we ALL GET As & Bs when tested?
Well, on the 1st day, Mr. Killes told us, if you read 100 manuals, you have 100 ways to build the same thing. Some manuals start from the top, and others from the bottom. Either is right, you only get into trouble when you look at another manual once you’ve started.
And he was right!
What did I learn through all this? IF YOU JUST FOLLOW ONE PERSON’S INSTRUCTIONS 100% – YOU’LL SUCCEED EXACTLY LIKE THEY DID.
I learned you need to FOCUS on ONE goal. And it shouldn’t take lots of steps to reach..
My 6-figure empire was built in 14 days AND only contained 5 steps. Wanna see ‘em?
- Research a niche to guarantee sales
- Create digital product
- Create sales funnel in ClickFunnels
- Buy paid traffic & work for free traffic
- A/B Split test everything you can
THAT IS IT!
But it took a lot of work and help from a special person..
STAY TUNED FOR DAY #3 when I reveal who that person was..
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 3 of 10] My last dollar
Hi, Zach here again!
If you’ve been tuning in, I told you about my teacher who evangelized about Internet Marketing, had 150K in his bank and started me on the path..
Mr. Killes started the fire – but this other guy.. HE TAUGHT ME THE TRICKS..
I had come across some free guides that gave me ideas 1 by 1 of what I could do online. You know what that felt like, right?
And one thing really stuck out..
Internet Marketing’s Insider Secrets by Corey Rudl. It seemed like a glimpse of hope in a dark time..
I signed up for a FREEBIE. Forgot to read it. Put it all in the back of my head. And strolled on.
But then he sent me this email..
“Tired? How long has it been since you felt relaxed.
Not just relaxed but happy?
We’re the same. Someone we always have to explain what we’re doing to. A boss.
What if you don’t have to slave anymore? What if you work as hard as you do now…
But for 1 more year AND RETIRE? Does that sound better?
Click Here to Learn How to Retire from Your Job”
It was all I needed to hear. I clicked and saw the price tag. TWENTY-FIVE hundred dollars.
I gulped. What was avoiding all the heartache of work worth? I clicked BUY NOW and spent $2.500 right there. It was every single dollar I ever made as a kid. I literally was betting everything on what Mr. Killes told me in our 6th period computer lab, the final day I said goodbye to him.
He pulled me aside and prepped me for college. The words burned in my mind like a scar. If you want to be smart broke, be an engineer, if you want to be dumb rich, be an internet marketer. I never got the smart/dumb part. Always thought you had to be smart to be in IM – HAHAHA!!!
I never got the smart/dumb part. Always thought you had to be smart to be in INTERNET MARKETING – HAHAHA!!!
STAY TUNED FOR DAY #4 and learn your secret to DRIVE your success forward.
PS: For me, it took being in credit card debt ($24,713.12 to be exact) and losing a home..
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 4 of 10] What DRIVES you?
Hi, it’s Zach
You been reading my previous emails? I marked them in [DAY X of 10] so you could find them in your inbox.
Quick ketchup (ha) – my high school teacher with 150K in the bank, said Internet Marketing is the life, which drove me to purchase a $2500 book from Corey Rudl that began my illustrious career into IM.. (and a TON of debt)..
Because all these gurus do is sell you on the next method and product, don’t they?
I read it all, got so fired up and then.. what happened? Well I focused on more than 1 thing.
I failed – like A LOT. I failed so much.
SO MUCH, that I got into a LOT of credit card debt, $24,713.12 to be exact.
I failed out of college, went from a 3.6 GPA to 2.2.
SO MUCH, that my parents cut me off from their support at 19.
I failed to make rent, maxing out all my cards, I had enough for 15 more days.
With no job, no degree and no visible way out. I CRIED.
I mean, who was willing to hire a kid with just a high school diploma and no experience? Economy sucked then, sucks now.
And with my newly engaged fiancée, Sasha with me now. I couldn’t ignore it, I needed a guaranteed paycheck TODAY – not TOMORROW.
So.. The only thing I found that could was.. selling insurance.. and every moment was H-E-L-L.
If you still have a J.O.B. – then you are feeling that same feeling too.
So I ask you, WHAT DRIVES YOU? What makes literally ‘FORCES’ you to get shit done?
Whatever it is, whether it’s a job you hate, money you need, or just simply helping others – whatever it is, reply back with what your drive is here: http://zach-miller.com/what-drives-you/
STAY TUNED TO DAY #5 when I talk about how drive can be used like a ‘Law of Attraction’ to create winning ideas within minutes..
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 5 of 10] Rags to riches.. well.. at least not homeless
So if you’ve kept tuned in – here I am in 2011, I’m a dropout, no money, a J.O.B. I hate and isn’t paying me enough, my wife was dying from an illness we couldn’t diagnose – and it literally was the darkest moments I ever faced.
Even when I think about that moment, those same emotions come boiling out.
That moment. That’s when I reached for something inside, even though I felt nothing was there. For what seemed like hours, I sat in the darkness of my living room at 4 in the morning. And just as the sun broke the horizon, something whispered in my ear.. if you want to be smart, be an engineer. If you want to be rich..
I immediately shot up with the sun and started frantically writing 10 ideas I could sell IN 24 HOURS online. I listed all 10 of my ideas on eBay, but one REALLY hit the jackpot. Back then, I sold what was known as “game saves”, they were just files that unlocked game items, levels and cheat codes. The 1st day I sold well over a dozen on eBay, profiting $3 a pop on each one. The next week, I sold 100. Then the 1st of the month came..
SUCCESS! I PAID RENT AND AVOIDED BEING HOMELESS.
I was so happy, I only had $27.33 left in my bank when I wrote the check. But by Day 30, I started selling 100 each and every day, and it went on like this till I topped off with hiring my good friend Dan Smith. It was literally the good life, just like Mr. Killes said!
The very first portion of the money I made after paying my bills, I invested into some holistic healers for Sasha. I had to figure out her sickness before she died. I and her, felt it was close. She said it was a matter of days left, not weeks. So we do our research, pay $1,000 in consulting fees. Which ends in us buying a single bottle of 99.99% Pure Iodine. Turns out she had a hypo-active thyroid deficiency which was completely reversed with ONLY 4 DROPS OF IODINE!!! In 14 days, she was back on her feet, running, lifting – I cried for another time, this time from pure joy. My life was saved.. my life was right again.
Now back to making money, right?
Well, everything came so fast. I thankfully took a moment and looked back at how the sudden change came about. And it was ONE THING – I found my DRIVING FORCE in my life.
Upon realization of YOUR DRIVE, you can accomplish many of the things I talk about inside my courses. I pack a lot of information, and when you find your drive WITH THAT INFORMATION… wow!
See, I didn’t have success with my 1st item, or 2nd, or 3rd. No, it was my SEVENTH idea that made me so much money. Are you beginning to see why you need a drive? Because with drive, you can go through all those ideas in 24 hours, not 24 months!
STAY TUNED TO DAY #6 when I reveal my #1 rule for GUARANTEED FAILURE (you need to learn it – so you can avoid it!)
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 6 of 10] The #1 rule for GUARANTEED FAILURE
Have you been tuned in? From dropping out of college to pursue Internet Marketing. To losing it all and making it back in time to pay rent. I quickly fell into a 6-figure business within 24 hours of find my “DRIVING FORCE” like we talked about in DAY 5.
So back to the story..
I guess I was always thinking, “Don’t Put All Your Eggs in One Basket” kind-of-thing when I found success and went onward to find another place that delivered it too.
Guess what happened?
I learned my FIRST RULE – Focus on ONE THING for SUCCESS, and TWO THINGS for FAILURE. The result? I spent every dollar I made, on 4 random businesses, and blew the $35,000 extra I was sitting on in no time.
Now about 6 months into “living the good life”, one of my main competitors began buying my listings and leaving negative feedback in bulk. This led to my account being suspended.
When I got that email, everything came crashing down. My entire business – GONE! Now how was I going to pay the bills this month? I thought I was going to have another one of those “disaster moments” like I had just a few months earlier.
And all the time, these internet marketing gurus kept telling me how there was millions to be made everywhere & they always had control of it. How come I couldn’t find any of it, then?
Maybe because I hadn’t met them yet, so I journeyed to where they all met back then..
LOOK OUT FOR DAY 7 when I tell you about how my “trip to guru mountain” went.. (and ended in me driving in one of their $250,000 Lamborghini Gallados)
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 7 of 10] I met 28 “gurus” all on this 1 mountain..
It was Feb 18-20 of 2011, ClickBank Conference in Orlando, FL. I met a lot of the top earners there. It was Day 1, open bar, and all of a sudden the big guys are spilling the beans, trading million dollar lists with each other, one guy sent an email right there on the couch, made a 100K in 5 minutes. It was surreal, I even took my first drive in a $250k Lamborghini Gallado, just because I was standing there.
These guys were millionaires every day over. I was star struck [and that’s what they wanted]. Every talk was a pitch for a $10,000 course they sold as a “tell-all”. It sounded like bull-shit. And then I met a startup, Mitch Sanders – in the last 60 days, knowing nothing about the internet, he had a 50k launch just a couple days before (I saw his live ClickBank account). Hearing this, changed my life forever.
That’s when I learned that it’s not your fault. The reason I failed, the reason you failed..
Was because all of these so-called gurus built up an email list for themselves while never telling you how they created all those sales, leaving out the most crucial parts like which autoresponder to get, how to sell a product, choose a niche. Everyone always left something important out, all leaving you with the inevitable failure that came, didn’t it?
It came for me, so many damn times. So many… and then I learned that any guru who wasn’t teaching you about email marketing, and talked about having a 5, 6 or even 7 figure product launches, or making $1,000 every day – did it all with an email list somewhere.
EMAIL was this important detail the ‘gurus’ always neglected to mention. And even when I went and paid literally tens of thousands of dollars to hear these same gurus speak for 3 days, they mentioned that key phrase we have all heard “the money is in the list” – but they neglected to tell me how I could work that to my advantage. That I needed a sales funnel, how to write emails, they never told me that.
I didn’t build other traffic channels. Didn’t start new campaigns. Didn’t create my own products. No continuity. None of the things that shape a “money maker” into a real proper business.
That’s when I learned the business..
WATCH OUT FOR DAY 8 when I break down what I did to turn a small local business I ran into a mega company in 12 months..
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 8 of 10] How to turn $5 into $10,000 contracts
If you haven’t been reading, I really suggest you go back and catch up.. there’s so much to put all this into context.. but long story short – I learned a lot from a visit to this “mountain” and finding about 30+ “gurus” – many willing to give their business models away.
So I took the bits and pieces I learned and glued them together. The sales scripts, the training, the lead generation methods – I took it all and created my own local Search Engine Optimization firm.
I utilized a site known as Fiverr, to offer my services at low price points. I used the advice Dan Kennedy gave me (for a hefty price tag), “..a buyer, is a buyer, is a buyer.”
I knew that someone who was willing to spend money, was willing to spend more money when given the correct picture that bridges what they want to achieve, and how my service would make that possible.
It was a huge success BECAUSE the concept is/has always been true. Still is, if you can build a list of buyers (even if they only have spent $5), you usually create a 6-figure business after you reach 1,000 buyers.
Dunno why, but that’s where the number is. So after 1,000 [unique] sales – I ran the numbers, after signing quite a few $10,000 & $12,000 contracts – we booked $265,000.00 in services in 1 single year with that advice!
How did I do it? Well, I asked my clients what they HATED MOST about buying from SEO companies. I knew if I could address that issue, I could make a fortune [and I did].
Now 6-figures every year ain’t bad, but I wanted to live the lifestyle of 7-figures, and working 10 hours a week. I didn’t know if that was possible, even with everything I had learned and all the 10s of thousands I had spent.
Then I met Russell Brunson..
STAY TUNED TO DAY 9 when I tell you about the $17,947 per day funnel.. (wanna copy/hack it?)
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 9 of 10] The $17,947 per day funnel
So here I am, I’ve spent so damn much in training. Probably $40,000 or so by now, and then I met Russell Brunson..
Russell showed me his sales funnel that made him $17,947 per day. EVERY DAY. And I felt like I knew more than him even! So, he taught me the final secrets to sales funnel hacking I missed..
And I was on my way.. Russell made me realize I didn’t have to be smart to be good at internet marketing, and I didn’t need to work hard. I just had to do ONE THING and DO THAT RIGHT, tracking my results.
Once I realized all these other ‘gurus’ were secretly holding me back to bleed me dry, I picked out the missing things and began testing. When I did, I found insane success.
How much? The SAME NIGHT I switched over to [a] high ticket sales [funnel], I doubled my business. I now only have 13 clients at a time that I consult with. That makes me 80% of my money [I love the 80/20 Rule].
I then laid all this out in my Email Mastery Course which served as thousands of businesses email marketing blueprint. And we’ve all discovered, your sales funnels are where rapid growth happens. Now this is where your journey begins..
Join me, won’t you?
Live the life, like I do. Work from home. Enjoy life. Work 1/2 as much. Make 2x as much. Money in bank. No boss. Spouse doesn’t have to work. No college degree. No previous experience. No salesmanship. No phone. All profit.
STAY TUNED FOR DAY 10 when I wrap up and talk about how you can increase your value to offer $5,000 & $25,000 services (no matter the industry you’re in).
Thanks in advance,
SUBJECT: [DAY 9 of 10] How you can sell $5k products & coaching
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from all these “gurus” – it’s this..
YOUR TIME IS VALUABLE
This reminds me of a parable..
A man was given a fortune in gold. There was but one condition. He raise the king’s child and upon the child’s death he may spend his fortune. He agreed.
The child grew to be a king, and the man who reared him did grow older. One day, the king went to war, and died. The old man was left with his fortune. But that night, death visited him and said “now is your time”.
To which he replied, “I have not yet lived. Nor have I spent my acquired fortunes.”
To wit, death touched the old man in comfort, which forced his spirit from his body, immediately taking him onward..
The moral. What’s money if you don’t have any time left?
So that’s why you should value your services, and your time. I see so many people charging only $20-$50 for their time – when in reality it should be in the hundreds.
Shit! I knew a guy on YouTube who made 100s of videos just mixing drinks in front of his trailer. You know how much he charges an hour to talk about mixing fruit drinks? $500 smackeroos an hour!
If he can charge that much (and make a 6-figure income), so can you!
