“Keith – I like imperfect. Every time someone exercises imperfect, it gives ‘permission’ to others to do the same. Imperfect action is better than perfect inaction.”
I had that really great message back from a lovely lady – Sarah – who is on our mailing list. How right she is.
Yesterday I sent out an e-mail which I had entitled ‘I am Surprised I am Sending This…’
AND here is the e-mail sent to our list announcing a new membership website:-
Hello Sarah – There Was A Time I Would Not Have Sent This E-mail – Let Me Explain…
Have you ever had a day where things haven’t gone right.
I think you have!
Well I have had a WEEK like that – nothing specific but – what NEXT!
It even went on into the weekend.
Adam is teaching his diploma students this weekend and my intention was to get an e-mail out to you good people on our mailing list, all about our Inner Circle membership website. This is very important to us and we want to spread the word.
On Friday morning Adam videoed an introduction to this new web page and we added some images to the video on Friday afternoon – Then we had to do something called rendering to make it compact to work on the web page.
I was checking things over Saturday only to find that the video rendering had not worked properly.
SO – We will have to sort the video out again during this coming week.
RATS!… Every day is important to me at my age.
So I sent a message to Adam to update him. I was not at all happy as I hate wasting time and I really wanted to get this promotional material out.
********* Overnight sleep *********
When I got up this morning and heard all sorts of information about Mental Health on the radio, TV and in the papers I had a total change of mind.
My thoughts were something like this:
- There is a desperate need for more talking therapists. We teach Hypnotherapy, CBT, NLP etc – we need to train MORE therapists.
- WHY am I dithering about putting out a page that is not perfect. Being perfect can slow you down – better to get things moving.
- Also it would be great to get some feedback. I want to know if I am I explaining the Inner Circle accurately and that the information is easily understood.
- Why not ASK for feedback? – YES that would be helpful.
- I finally thought I AM going to send a message today.
So that is what I am doing!
I wouldn’t have done this in the past – perfection was necessary – BUT – to hell with that now!
WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND HAVE OUR FIRST INNER CIRCLE MEMBERS – AND WE WOULD LIKE YOU ON BOARD AS WELL.
There are two pages for you to check out.
The temporary web page that we have been using describing the Inner Circle Membership is at: http://www.adameasoninnercircle.com
And here is the NEW promotional page:
The Video is sort of working and you will hear all of the narration from Adam – but something went wrong as you will see http://training.aecollegeofhypnosis.uk/?page_id=12
If there is anything that is not clear on the web page do let me know. I would really appreciate that.
I hope I have a better week ahead and also wish you the same. I hope I will be hearing from you anyway – with feedback and hopefully as a new member.
The open rate of that message was good – click throughs to the website were good – and we got some new members. Furthermore I can e-mail again when the video has been sorted.
Thank you Sarah – Imperfect Action is Better Than Perfect Inaction!!!
Talented Experts To Help You Succeed
It is vital to surround yourself with great talented experts to succeed. There’s a strong statement – and I mean it.
I have worked for years with Adam (hypno-geek) Eason – who is a talent and a leader in his field of clinical hypnotherapy.
On the marketing side of the business I have had various mentors along the way but none that compare with a team that I am going to introduce you to in this blog. David and Jen at NAMS.
Mind You BEWARE! – David and Jen and their talented expert friends – are keeping me up late at night.
At about 10pm yesterday evening – I started to listen to a really talented expert talking about using video streaming – (advice strength 10/10).
About 11pm I started listening to an incredibly successful (I mean multi-millionaire successful) marketing guy about putting blueprints, and funnels in place before wondering about traffic sources. (another 10/10 offering presentation).
I then started to listen to a third interview which I reluctantly had to pause because there were 90 minutes more to play. I wasn’t sleepy – but needs must.
So what am I up to?
Well I don’t really find it work to be honest. I thoroughly enjoy learning from masters of their craft. We have some big business targets this year and that is what I am chasing. Making it happen! But I need experienced help and advice.
I recognise the amount of work that David and his market training team have put into their membership website because I have had to build up massive amount of video, webinar, interviews that we have recorded and packaged in our own College of Hypnosis website.
We are taking our hypnotherapy business to a new level and marketing and affiliates are central to the plans.
We are looking for affiliates to join us – BUT unless you are an experienced affiliate already you will need to learn the trade – pre-selling, getting traffic, building mailing lists, targeting, social media etc.
YOU HAVE TO LEARN AND WORK
Now if YOU want to build a successful affiliate/passive income business – it is not easy. You will have work to do. You will have skills to learn. There will be experts you need to advise you. The rewards are enormous though if you take the action and learn the game.
SO WHERE ARE WE JUST NOW?
The image below is very basic and is ONLY about the marketing side of what I am up to. My blueprint which I will share with you soon will have all the funnels I am trying to develop.
My late night training – mentioned above – was all from NAMS (Novice To Advanced Marketing System) run by David Perdew and his daughter Jen. I thoroughly recommend that the affiliates for our evergreen hypnosis audios and videos get their marketing training with NAMS also.
The products and college courses need to be promoted by our well trained affiliates and we all WIN. We know the products sell well as we have been selling them ourselves for a few years. We also have courses that you can promote with large commissions.
So this is what I am after – adding a circle on this picture which is YOU – who joins me learning from the top internet marketers at NAMS promoting, products, courses and other affiliate projects.
Suggested marketing support for our affiliates – it is good enough for me – and I am fussy!
Let’s keep it simple. (SIMPLE is something I personally have to learn)
I am really keen that you get hold of me if:
- you want to learn more about hypnosis and being a hypnotherapist
- you are a hypnotherapist wanting – continuing professional development
- you are interested in hypnosis audio/video products
- hypnotherapist wanting promote business/practice. [NAMS]
- hypnotherapist want to sell our products from 50% commission upwards [NAMS]
- an affiliate wanting to sell our products [NAMS]
- an affiliate wanting to promote our courses. [NAMS]
- anyone wanting to learn internet marketing [NAMS]

Hypnotic Affiliates – that is what I am after. Yes – maybe you!
A few years ago, I began to sell other peoples products online. In fact I used to spend about 1 hour a day doing all the bits you have to do – and I made a great part time income.
Some affiliates make it a full time occupation and I know a lot of very successful affiliates.
I didn’t get that involved – but – what is actually weird (but great of course!!) is that I am still getting cheques for sales that I made a decade ago for ongoing long term online services.
Products have not been my priority for some time now.
I have been involved with Adam Eason building up a training college for hypnotherapists. To tell you the truth the college work has been an incredible task as we have videoed and prepared all of the materials and resources for online training. Yep – hundreds of hours!!
So the poor old products have sat there on our online ‘Hypnosis For Download’ store – actually selling – but by accident rather than by design.
NOW that is changing – the college marketing is under way with all of our courses in place BUT also our products are back on our radar and are part of our marketing plans.
How best to sell self-hypnosis audios and videos and promote them – with affiliates.
The best affiliates out there are people who have been selling marketing products for online selling. Great they are with huge mailing lists – and OF COURSE I will welcome those aboard – in fact GET IN TOUCH.
The best affiliates for us will be people who are hypnotherapists or people that have used the audios. Selling is all about knowing your products. BUT there is something much more important. A great affiliate is a personality who gets to know his potential customers.
So a successful affiliate will be somebody who uses social media and blogging to build the list. He/she then builds a mailing list using the opportunities and traffic building techniques guided by us – the merchant.
On the right hand side of this blog post (in the right hand column) you will see a ‘Hypnosis For Download’ Offer. I have put that there as a demonstration to our current affiliates. The offer there is totally alive and if you fill in your e-mail you will get instructions sent to you to get the half price products.
Our affiliates need to create their own blog if they haven’t got one to do just the same – but to write posts and articles/reviews about the products etc.
You may be saying I can’t write a blog. There are services out there to get the articles written (more about that another day)
Anyway I say stop those excuses. If you want to you can take an hour a day to come and learn with me – how to sell these (evergreen products) and get an additional income –
Affiliate sign up. – https://hypnosis-for-download.leaddyno.com/
If you want to get some self-hypnosis audios at half price then fill in the form on the right. You will also get a free gift of “Hypnosis Revealed” if you buy an audio. This is a great way to get some knowledge about the products if you want to sell them.
I hope to see some of you on board. There are videos and training material in the affiliates area.
Affiliate Action Mindset for 2017 – Self-Hypnosis products for therapeutic gain referral program.
Action Mindset – There it is – a new year resolution.
A new direction – which needs different thinking!
Do you know what I am doing?
I am creating my action mindset when starting a large venture – (more of that below) – new good habits. (For example can I keep this blog going daily??)
ACTION is the most amazing thing and I have been learning from an expert.
I am emulating Babs (my wife) who can plan to the last detail.
We have a motorhome and we both make a decision which is that we will go for a three weeks tour around Spain in October. I hardly need lift another finger – Babs is away – she is at it – she IS IN THE ZONE. Dates for holiday at work, Spanish lessons because we will be in interior away from tourist routes. Maps – large ones – all over the floor. Discussion with friends who can advise about good motorhome camp-sites – cheapest ferries – internet access on route – and so on.
Babs loves it – the planning and activity around the whole thing is as good as the doing. When we set off – I just get into the motorhome and the sat nav routes are all there – I love every bit of the outcome – BUT I usually have missed the build up. I think I am actually missing something there.
Now I have a chance to achieve a similar zonal action mindset with all that i want to get out of our new referral affiliate program.
So what are we up to at ‘Adam Towers’. Why do we need this Action Mindset.
We now need the same sort of level of planning and developing of our marketing plans for our college courses AND our therapeutic self-hypnosis products. It is all very fine having some great courses and products – but people need to know they are there.
For some three years now we have been setting up our College of Hypnosis with all of the courses, webinars, seminars etc. BUT as well – we have been videoing every course including four new Continuing Professional Development online programs. The work has been heavy and we have had very little time to promote and market fully.
During those three years we have not really marketed our audio products at all. They are evergreen audios and videos and they have continued to sell to anyone that comes across them BUT …. well – could do better!! AND we have some new audios to add.
I love marketing so…
Now we have all the courses set up this is the year to beat our drums and make a noise – and it is going to be fun and exciting.
We have options of course: DO we use Adwords and Facebook to advertise?
Well it can work especially to find people for our courses – BUT the audio and video products need a different approach.
The products side really excites me because there are millions (NO — billions!! ) of people who can get help with so many issues. We have audios and videos that can help so many people – I am not going to go on because that is just selling.
We can promote the products in adverts or blog posts like this – but that is so limited – and in my case not totally believable as I helped to put the products together.
- I am bound to say they are good.
- The same would happen if Adam sang his own product praises.
What we need is YOU as long as you are enthusiastic and are keen to make some money.
NO – what we need is you – come and join us. Word of Mouth marketing is much better than advertising.
The thing is though that selling as an affiliate is a learned skill. For example – you want to be able to sell without appearing to sell. I know – all will be explained.
There are NO interviews – NOTHING in your way.
I will be sending out videos to help you along. The ACTION required will be between 30 minutes and and hour daily. So you watch the video and take the next step forward.
If you we teach you well – you will get 50% of the purchase price of each product – which means we get 50%.
Furthermore – you get recognised for any further purchases from that customer for the next 3 years.
WIN WIN – so we want you to do well.

Once you are signed up you will get all of my training information weekly.
There have been plenty of press this week about Brooklyn Beckham (BB – that was Brigitte Bardot’s famous initials in my youth). He is sixteen years old and has been hired by Burberry as photographer of their latest fragrance range. Sixteen – he should be the tea boy on the staff.
Some pretty top class photographers are getting ‘snappy’ about all of this. Chris Floyd was ranting in the Guardian about the crassness of it all and initmating that it is very demeaning to professionally trained photographs.
The reason for the move by Burberry was simply financial as the parents of BB are David Beckham and Posh. David had in an interview about a month ago had intimated that his son was interested in photography. The point is it was about fashion, and the shark like opportunism of the advertising world.
What was interesting was the word Nepotism that crept into newspaper headlines, twits and other social media sites.
A strange word is nepotism. The term comes from Italian word nepotismo which is based on Latin root nepos, meaning nephew or grandson
Some Catholic popes and bishops, who had taken vows of chastity and therefore usually had no legitimate offspring of their own, gave their nephews such positions of preference. In the Borgia family in order to continue a papal dynasty Pope Calistus III made two of his nephews cardinals.
Now here is an opportunity for a Pope to get a bit of kudos. What next for BB – even bigger things maybe by the time he is 18.
I must be in an irritable frame of mind this week. I have just been wanting to throw my laptop through the window again. The normal placid happy me seems to have gone on holiday and not taken me with him.
I found myself once again this morning wound up about a tiny thing yet incredibly irritating… (more…)
