The praise for David Fagan and his daughter Jordan (17 years old) from last year's youth program was as loud as the cheers in Dallas Cowboy stadium when Romo doesn't fumble. So, David & Jordan are once again planning a rip-snortin' event for the young un's. This is a great opportunity to have "3rd party authority" reinforce the free enterprise, ambition, initiative, study ethic, etc. message you've been representin' at the homestead. It's great for each kid to discover there's a whole gang of kids focused on success in life, rather than on Grand Theft Auto #5. PLUS: SPECIAL GUEST: HOWARD BERG, THE WORLD'S FASTEST READER – ‘How To Study & Learn Faster, Remember Info With A Super-Memory & Ace Tests Every Time'. GKIC is proud to sponsor and provide this opportunity for the 5th consecutive year. Bring your whole tribe, from age 13 and up.
First time – this year: Two Tracks, one for Young Entrepreneurs, another for Aspiring Entrepreneurs. The kids will attend Emmitt Smith's Presentation and get a group photo with Emmitt. The entire youth program schedule will mirror the adults' schedule, so parents can check in with their kids on breaks and at lunch. The youth program ends after the SuperConferenceSM on Saturday, so parents can attend the kids' final presentations. Kids will "workshop" businesses and make presentations to a panel of experts.
At the GKIC Teens event, your child will learn how to Start, Market, and Build Their Own Business. This will include lessons on branding, copywriting, web design, video, and list building. They'll learn these key concepts by splitting up into groups and competing with other teens to see who can start, market and build the best business in a competition that's a cross between Shark Tank and American Idol. They'll present what they come up with at the end of the event to a panel of expert judges, where they'll be able to win prizes and awards in different areas.
DAVID FAGAN is a Professional Rain-Maker, cutting his teeth in the financial industry, overseeing business development for 9 banks, then transitioning to consulting. He has worked with Jay Conrad Levinson (Guerrilla Marketing) and Infusionsoft. David is also the father of 8 children.
JORDAN FAGAN, David's daughter, is the author of "How To Make It Big By 17: How To Make Money On Saturday." She has her own teen temp agency "Hire A Teen!", marketing teen-agers as virtual assistants, and has spoken on several big stages, including Stompernet and GKIC.
There will be many future entrepreneurs attending the SuperConferenceSM with their parents, eager to meet others that are business-minded just like them!
In An Uncertain, Fragile & Profit-Threatening Economy
Put away the White Flag! While countless companies, national chains, restaurants, small businesses and even info-marketers have been SURRENDERING to price pressure and HANDING OVER their profitability in recent months (with WORSE pressure to come), here's what Kennedy and his clients have been up to:
AMAZING RESULT #:1 Raised first transaction average from $47 to $133.75, plus created a $997 immediate upsell accepted by more than 40% of the buyers...with same cost of sale as the ‘old' $47 (Be here to get these BEST UpsellS – plural – strategies)
AMAZING RESULT # 2 Doubled a prior year's price for a comparable offer to the same customer and prospect list – and got 92% as many buyers. (Gee, that took Brass Balls. + a daring Price Strategy, revealed in this Session)
AMAZING RESULT # 3 Sold over $1-million of goods in 72 hours to customers awash in competitors' offers priced at 50% to 90% less (with 4 Ways of Making Price Competition IRRELEVANT – yours, in this Session)
AMAZING RESULT # 4 Took a local, small business' monthly marketing expense DOWN by 36%, , DOUBLED the number of new clients, and raised the average client value by 15% (2 Actions Required – You CAN Do Them. Revealed in this Session)
AMAZING RESULT # 5 Solved a ‘failure' to get pre-pays rather than installment purchases from affluent customers in 3-minutes of conversation (creating TWO strategies to test; ONE a big winner)
(Revealed, by the way, before this in the No B.S. Marketing to the Affluent Letter, but this client didn't ‘connect the dots' from that example to his ‘different' business. Dan did! You'll get the winning strategy.)
a few fast-draw words from dan kennedy about this super-conferencesm that you
may very well not want to register for
Very frankly, y'all have become a "tough crowd" – with good reason. The days of everybody flocking to seminar after seminar after seminar "just because" are flat-dead OVER. Travel's better than in the wagon-train days and there's little risk of getting captured and scalped en-route, but it's not fun, it's not convenient and it's not cheap. The economy is not an un-mined stream with gold laying about to be scooped up. You gotta DIG. The very thought of taking days away from your work, and taking money out of your safe to pay for trip and destination's event is sour. I GET IT. I feel exactly the same damn way. One of my best friends' favorite sayings is – now, you've got to give me one hell of a good reason to even leave my house. I'm with him. I also, famously, HATE having my time wasted, and preach that you should too. Don't for a minute think that I dare take your registration and attendance for granted.
I'm NOT an entitlement guy. Doesn't matter how well you've done in the past followin' my lead. It's about now. You don't owe me. You don't owe GKIC. We are always in your debt. You are never in ours. I know this. I work hard at winning, earning and KEEPING your trust.
So, let me give you the 4 best Big Reasons that I have, why you should mount up and ride like the wind to this round- up, even if your first thought is to "see no SuperConferenceSM, hear no SuperConferenceSM, do no SuperConferenceSM."
Reason #1: No b.s.'ers or "slickers." I hate these varmints, who multiply these days like rabbits on Viagra®, with made- up-yesterday "ideas" to peddle, with so little experience with what they're pushing there's not even an honest scuff mark on their boots. The Old West, when Texas was fighting for statehood, was tough, but so is the New Economy. So we're building a "TOUGH-MINDED" SuperConferenceSM. Here, this year, we're INSISTING on REAL marketing and money-making gun-slingers. From within our ranks, Marketers of the Year Competition Winners, top Members achieving legendary levels of success and growth in their businesses, DOERS. Take a close look at the likes of Darin Spindler, Matt Buchel, Craig Proctor. These guys are NOT professional, perpetual peddlers, "medicine men", roving from town to town to town (seminar to seminar) selling the same wares. I've asked them to come to OUR town – yours and I mine – and share exclusive, authentic, insider information about how they are getting REAL results in REAL businesses. You can see, we've been very selective about the other experts brought in.
Reason #2 – ME. I haven't got ONE job this year, I've got THREE. Hey, if you want a lot of Dan, and there's been some silly grumbling about not getting' enough, well, bring your bucket. I'm building an extended length presentation, ‘The Great Brain Robbery' to at least DOUBLE YOUR INCOME – FAST. Since you probably make more than a couple thousand bucks and a can of pinto beans a year, that promise, and it IS a promise I mean to keep, makes the registration fee a non-issue. But I've also got a 2nd box of moneymaking ammo for you, price elasticity. And I've also got my Trend Predictions that could keep you from steppin' in gopher holes or rattlesnake pits, and might lead you to gold. It's all NEW and EXCLUSIVE to the SuperConferenceSM.
Reason #3 – to register NOW. The GKIC team ABSOLUTELY assures me: there'll be no better deal than the one you can get right now. Wait and pay more, that's the fact. Now, I know a secret. Some smart alecks are willing to pay more and wait just so they get to see all of GKIC's marketing all the way to the bitter end. So, this year, for the first time ever, there's a box on the Registration Form you can check, that'll keep you on the list to get hit with every volley fired, even though you registered early. GRAB THE SAVINGS NOW.
Reason #4 - GKIC'll guarantee its value AS NEVER BEFORE. Here's the deal. Take in the entire first day, even to HIGH NOON the 2nd day. If, anytime to then, you honestly feel you've had your pockets picked and haven't gotten ten-fold value, you just walk over to our Banker and demand whatever you think fair – from a full refund all the way up to a double refund and air travel reimbursement up to $500, too. He'll fork it over, no gun needed. NOBODY giving seminars about anything has such cajones. They can't. First of all, GKIC trusts its Members and customers. Second, GKIC delivers. If you can go a day and a half at this year's SuperConferenceSM and NOT be more thrilled than the trail-rider his first night off the range, in the saloon, and the "back room, I'm a lily-livered tenderfoot. Anyway, you're the hanging judge.
Now, I've gotta convince you to pull the trigger NOW. The big point is this: indecision is the emotional indigestion of the weak and procrastination is the secret-handshake of the fraternity of the poor. You gotta cowboy up, tall in the saddle, strong of spirit, if you're REALLY out to conquer. Those who act as soon as they know the facts, and there will be hundreds who do, say something about themselves, to themselves. It's a SUCCESS HABIT. Andrew Carnegie knew it and tested Napoleon Hill with it. Gunslingers certainly knew it: he who hesitates was dead. A successful quarterback has 3 seconds. I've witnessed it my whole career. Letting things stack up, that you intend to decide about later, soon clogs up your whole system. There are people surrounded by things they're endlessly thinking over like Custer was surrounded by Injuns. Only the "DONE's" count.
