The Three Keys of Advertising Cycles (01:43)

  • There are three key steps in the advertising cycle: The Mogul Method, list building, and the conversion mechanism.
  • The Mogul Method is your video and content creation strategy.
  • List building involves getting people to sign up to your mailing or subscribers list and growing it.
  • Conversion mechanism is how you get a visitor to do something, like buying from your online store.
  • You don’t have to start with content creation before building your lists and creating a conversion mechanism.
  • The advertising cycle should be reversed, starting with the conversion mechanism moving towards list building then employing The Mogul Method.

Why Start With the Conversion Method (4:52)

  • The Mogul Method requires producing great content which costs money.
  • You need to have a source of money for content creation, which requires leads to convert.
  • Focus only on conversion mechanism until you earn half a million yearly.

List Building Strategy (8:05)

  • Brian Kurtz, a direct marketing guru, explains in another episode of the podcast why “The money is in the list.”
  • List building strategy needs to have value, don’t spam the people on your list.
  • Grant Cardone, a real estate mogul and another previous guest on the show, said that if your subscribers don’t like your offers, then build a bigger list.
  • Your list gets you people who are interested in your content and should feed into your conversion mechanism.

Mogul Method – When To Create Content (13:33)

  • Employing the Mogul Method first is only possible if you have all the money in the world.
  • I used the past two years to build my conversion mechanism and list before producing the podcast.
  • I also started with the Mogul Method first, which lead to having no sales.
