    I have 10K U.S. to spend on our IM journey. I am heavily experienced but hardly a pro.

    I am willing to fax or email a copy of my first $5,000 to the owner of this forum to start as proof.

    Hi, my name is Phillip aka thedorf and I am doing a tell-all IM initiative in hopes of making the internet a better place. You'll see how later.

    I've been doing IM since about '98 and I am about as hardcore a php programmer as you'll find (I once built a multi-million page website in 3 hours, it was just a technical magical trick any of you could do. The website got banned 3 weeks & $xxx's later because of a manual review. Most all my websites get manual reviews. Hey I do things like put up multi-milllion page websites quickly) ;) I'm cool with the reviews.

    You are about to learn how I recently put up a converting website in 10 days.

    Here is my offer to you: BHW gets everything - my website, my limited offsite activities, my marketing tips, my traffic sources - anything I think you can use you will get, PERIOD.

    What I have behind me is a chocolate selling website that's grossed a quarter million dollars online plus my own $xxx days with Adsense and $xxx days with other affiliate programs. I will also fax the $250,000 statement to the owner of this website if requested.

    Here is a look at my latest emails, my conversions started popping 2 days ago (nothing outrageous yet, each report is a conversion) - but be sure to check against today's date.

    I know most of you have done a gazillion more than this but some have not so please let me speak in peace.

    Here is your first lesson (with homework) so you can consider if you want to follow this thread (look above you - "Thread Tools -> Subscribe to Thread"):

    There are many desires (wants) that manifest emotionally. Here are eight common desires (wants):

    I want wealth
    I want good looks
    I want health
    I want to be popular
    I want to be safe
    I want inner peace
    I want free time
    I want to have fun

    Homework: Pick one of the above to work with for your next website.

    I warn you upfront this is not a journey for someone technically challenged (but you can always hire someone to do what I describe cheap, cheap, cheap and I'll tell you how to do this too).

    Phillip aka thedorf

    P.S. In my next post I will tell you how to attach emotionally to your website visitors because of these seven desires - but first consider this: what stages does an average website visitor go through? There is no need to answer this as I'll be telling you shortly.

    P.S.S. You do not have to spend this much money to follow me and build your own converting website. I'm doing things above and beyond but I'll tell you how to do most everything I do without spending anywhere near that much money.

    Are you interested?

    Sub'd. Most people fail in IM 'cause they don't have the guts to put money in their ventures. The truth about making money is - "It takes money to make money".

    For example, I spend mid-4 figure each month just for testing various aspects of IM. If I didn't had this courage from the very first when I started IM (at the age of 16, without a dime like many others), I wouldn't have come this far.

    Looks like both of us have a common ground :)

    Good luck (Though, we both know luck has nothing to do with it, it's all hard work with a proper plan).

    Very interesting .. are you putting that 10k into advertising?

    I'm a bit confused on what kind of website you are putting up.

    Sounds like you are doing ecommerce and selling chocolates online?

    No, no, this website is lead generation and the topic (of this post) is about how to build a converting website. I haven't told anyone my niche yet. Thanks for the question, others may feel the same as you!

    I will be following. Although, I don't really understand the journey completely.
    Will build another million-page website and invest 10K into it with advertising?

    Looking forward to the next update.

    No, this website is less than 5 pages - really just two main pages. The 10K goes into buying everything from the template, to special cutomizations (I now outsource most of my work and I'll give you most everything I buy to cover you, all within copyright laws because I'm purchasing extended licenses), to webhosting, to advertising and whatnot else. You do not have to spend this much money at all, I'll tell you how to do this too...

    I said in my first post I wanted to make the internet a better place - I've figured out that giving creates more than taking.

    So...Here is your next post.

    The average visitor, more or less, goes through the following stages:

    average-website-visitor-stages.png (kudos to hubspot .com for the image).

    This really isn't good. Think about this - the first stage is as a stranger, now how many strangers did you talk to today compared with the number of people you passed that you could have talked with? Not that many I bet. Few people are that outspoken. Ouch, odds are already against us converting this person, who is one of almost everybody who visits our website.

    Now we have eight wants to consider against five stages a website visitor goes through. Ultimately, this thought leads us to twelve things we must do with our websites.

    These twelve things are:


    Get the readers attention
    Identify problem
    Provide the solution
    Present your credentials
    Show the benefits
    Give social proof
    Make your offer
    Inject scarcity
    Give a guarantee
    Call to action
    Give a warning
    Close with a reminder

    I do all twelve of these on my website and I'm going to show you how, but that is for another post.

    Thanks everyone for your time, if you have tips for me along the way, or if you do not understand something I'm saying, make a reply to the post.

    Next time I'll explain why your h1 header and your advertisements need to be the same. Others may disagree but this is how my system works.

    Cheers all ~

    nah, not really, it isn't enticing enough for me, you almost got me interested with the chocolate selling website though, but i'd rather watch a vlog of you spending that $10k on hoes & cocaine in Dan Bilzerian style :p

    GL with your journey

    P.S. whenever and wherever i see that little guy which you too have on your avatar, i CTFU lol
