What happened to all the famous online marketers?

I wanna talk about this a little more:

===

I have been following John Morris for several years now. John has a very unique way of seeing what motivates people (not always muney!) and how to please others, while earning a nice living doing that. He constantly provides new content and his instruction ranges from beginner to advanced, to CEO level guidance. I have referred friends and clients to John, and have encouraged my own daughter to pay attention to what he says. When John offers a new course, I sign up instantly and I am always

ready to pay for the content. All of his teachings create wealth for me (and happiness for my clients!) I cant speak highly enough about John, his name is well known in my home.

===

You’ll notice something.

Notice there’s nothing here about “some dope tactic” or “an epic strategy” or any of the typical flim-flam you see in testimonials. “CEO-level guidance”, a “unique way of seeing what motivates people”, etc.

That’s on purpose.

I’ve never been a short-term thinker. I could go on forever with the things I’ve seen in my 17+ years. Just one example… back in the day, the big thing in online marketing used to be SEO.

And there were people who spent all their time figuring out how to game Google. And they *knew* whatever gimmick they game up with would be short-lived, that Google would figure it out and would eventually “slap” them.

(BTW, seeing this starting to happen with Facebook Ads, today.)

They didn’t care.

Their game was profiting from it while it lasted.

Which… that IS a strategy. I don’t even begrudge it. It’s just not how I personally prefer to operate. To me, it’s a lottery ticket mindset and you’re always looking for the next score — which may or may NOT come.

And, it’s exhausting.

Constantly overhauling your business.

Also, as technology has advanced.

And systems have become more sophisticated.

The windows on that kind of thing have gotten smaller and smaller. That’s probably why a LOT of those “business people” have disappeared. You don’t hear form them anymore. Many have gone back to regular jobs.

Because it’s just no longer worth the energy.

Yet, here little ol’ me is…

Plugging along.

Working just a couple hours a day, methodically growing my business based on fundamentals and long-term thinking — and survived a couple recessions and a worldwide pandemic to boot.

That’s just how MY mind works.

Right or wrong.

It’s the classic “tortoise VS the hare” mentality.

And you don’t have to agree with me or think the same as me. But, I would suggest you take a moment to really think about how YOU want to operate. And actually decide on it explicitly.

My life changed when I did that.

Of course, it also happens to be how I teach. It’s one of the big differences about my “course on courses”. All the hoopla and “sizzle” aside… what it really is.. is a *sustainable* method for creating online courses…

That lets you consistently crank out course after course.

Without running yourself ragged.

Courses that your students will get tremendous value from (and leave reviews like the one above) — but that are evergreen and can bring you steady revenue year over year without much tweaking on your part.

And in a way that also makes them much easier to sell.

Even if you’re a complete noob.

It’s not a gimmick or short-term strategy.

It’s really about adding course-building as a whole (not just a single course) as a revenue stream to your existing business (or using course-building to jumpstart your transition to working full-time online).

“CEO-level guidance”… as they say.

Anyway, that certainly won’t be for everybody — most people, in fact. Most people have a lottery mindset and think short-term. If something doesn’t “hit” and make them a gazillion bucks in 3 nano-seconds…

They don’t wanna hear it.

Cool. Do your thing.

But, if you’re a deeper, long-term thinker and want high-level guidance on how to add a new, highly-leveraged, revenue stream to your business, then this course will be for you.

For the time being, the course is up on Skillshare.

Which means you can get it essentially free. That’s because, as a teacher there, I’m able to get you an exclusive 1-month free trial of the site (the normal trial is just 7 days) where you get 100% unfettered access.

Every course, every lesson, every download.

All of it.

Then, if cancel before the 1 month is up…

You don’t pay a penny.

Certainly a few hoops, but essentially free like I said. If that floats your potato, then this is the link you need: https://myjohn.us/sane. That’ll get you access to the 1-month free trial.

Then, once you’re signed up…

Use that same link to hop into the course.

You’ll want Lesson #2.

Later,

John

P.S. For Patrons, you already have access to this course (and all my past courses) here: https://myjohn.us/patreon.

I started this 3 days ago, following John’s suggestions, and I gained the Upwork Rising Talent badge in less than 2 days. I have a call with my first potential client tomorrow. Thanks, John!

John is the man! I followed his steps and I am flooded with interviews in a week. I got into two Talent clouds. The very next day, I got an invitation from the talent specialists from Upwork and a lot more. I wanna shout out, he is the best in this. Thanks John for helping me out!

After viewing John’s course, I made an Upwork account and it got approved the same day. Amazingly, I got my first job the very same day, I couldn’t believe it, I thought maybe I got it by coincidence. Anyways I completed the job and received my first earnings. Then, after two days, I got another job and within a week I got 3 jobs and completed them successfully. All the things he says seem to be minute but have a very great impact on your freelancing career.

I’ve been in an existential crisis for the last week about what the heck I’m doing as a business owner. Even though I’ve been a business for about a year, I’m constantly trying to think of how to prune and refine services. This was very personable and enjoyable to watch. Usually, business courses like this are dry and hard to get through…. repeating the same things over and over again. This was a breath of fresh air. THANK YOU.

I’ve definitely learnt so much in 2.5 hours than I’d learn watching different videos online on Youtube and reading tons of articles on the web. John has a natural way of teaching, where he is passionately diving in the topics and he makes it very easy to grasp — someone who wants you to really start running your business well by learning about the right tools and implement them in your online business. I will definitely share with many of the people I know who have been struggling for so long, I did find my answers and I’m sure will do too.

John is a fantastic and patient tutor, who is not just able to share knowledge and communicate it very effectively – but able to support one in applying it. However, I believe that John has a very rare ability to go further than just imparting knowledge and showing one how to apply it. He is able to innately provoke one’s curiosity when explaining and demonstrating concepts, to the extent that one can explore and unravel their own learning journey. Thanks very much John!

John has been the most important person in my freelance career ever since I started. Without him, I would have taken 10 or 20 years more to reach the position I am at now (Level 2 seller on Fiverr and Top Rated on Upwork).
