THE CONFERENCES I AM GOING TO
I am going to talk about the conferences I am going o coming up this fall and winter and why you should attend conferences and networking events in your industry so that you can network with people.
Networking is important especially in your career because the more people you meet, the more networks you are attached to. It is an amazing thing where you meet people that can help you grow your business.
DYNAMITE CIRCLE BKK
One of the events I m going to is the DC BKK.which means Dynamite Circle which is ran by the guys who make the Tropical NBA podcast. It is a paid community that I am a member of. The members have cash flowing businesses that are online that want to network with each other. It is hard to figure out how to be a member too because it is an insiders' only event. However, you can try to google about it and be part of their email list and receive updates about the events they are going to host. It usually happens in October.
The event’s place takes place in Bankok, Thailand. It is one of the visited cities in the world. It is a fun place and there is literally something for everybody. You can enjoy their huge malls, street foods, temples, rivers, and huge park. You can get a motorbike and ride around the city. The traffic is crazy, I suggest you take the subway or skyway. It will help you get a lot around town and it is really cheap. Don’t try the buses because you will be stuck in traffic. It is awesome for single guys as there are tons of nightlife and red-light districts.
I have some business I need to take care of in the States this fall. I decided to look up what events were happening in November. I received an email from a guy named Jeff Walker recently who is promoting his event called launch con in Phoenix, Arizona.
Jeff Walker is the guy behind the Launch Book. The book is about how to do a proper launch. You can check my previous blog about launches. You can make a lot of sales doing lunches than doing evergreen sales. Limited time launches really do work well.
My goal for 2020 is to network with more people so I can grow my community. It would help me improve as an entrepreneur.
There is another event coming up in December. It is happening in Bankok, Thailand and it’s called Affiliate World. It is a great conference for affiliate marketers like me. You will get to network with companies that offers affiliate products. I am excited about this event as I will be networking with other affiliate marketers.
I went to Affiliate World a couple of years ago and I got to hang out with my buddy and mentor, Earnest Epps. He was one of the speakers and He did a great talk about dropshipping.
FUNNEL HACKING LIVE
In late January to February, there is a big event, this is the one that I am most excited to go to because I missed out last year. It is the community that is so engaged and excited to hang out with each other. You can check about the event here: It is because the founder does it like MLM and get referrals which are fine. The method of marketing is totally legit. It is called Funnel Hacking Live and it is put on by a guy named Russel Brunson and his team over at click funnels. Click Funnels is a software program for building sales funnels online and they host your website for you. I am a click funnel affiliate, check it out at ecommerceparadise.com/clickfunnels and get free trials.
Russel Brunson also wrote a book that changed my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. The first book I have read and got me on this process of becoming a better marketer. The book is called Expert’s Secrets. You can buy the book from my affiliate link at ecommerceparadise.com/expertsecrets. It is just $10 plus free shipping.
If you are starting your business or if you are trying to grow, just know that networking is going to help you grow your network. Your network is your net worth. The people you know are going to determine how much money you have and how much you are going to be able to experience in life. Meet people that are in higher places and doing bigger things so you will also get into their places when you work hard for it. Life is all about working together on things. It could be a partnership or just sharing ideas. Networking is going to get you farther in life so do it.
TRADE SHOWS FOR HIGH TICKET DROPSHIPPING
For high ticket drop shipping, there are great conferences you can go to that are more like trade shows. It happens a lot of times in Las Vegas Nevada, for some reason Vegas is the center of the world for conferences and trade shows in America.
You can go to these trade shows and get some ideas on niches. You can talk to the suppliers of high ticket products and get them on board on your store.
For instance, my niche in 2014 was road bikes and we did half a million in sales without any paid ads. With that, we wanted to have more suppliers so we went to the big bicycle expo called Inner Bike. It happens every single year in Las Vegas. They also have a second show along with that which is the Fitness Industry. You get to test their bikes since they have an outdoor event too. It is fun and it’s free. However, you have to be a dealer in order to join the event.
DON'T HIDE, MAN UP!
Be the person behind your business. Go to events, hang out with people whom you have the same business and interests. Make friendship with these people. Build rapport and when you do that with the potential supplier, you get to be the number person on top of their mind when it comes to making more sales. They are going to be hitting you up when they have clearance events, new prices, and new shipments.
