Does this sound like you?

If you’ve been online for more than a day, you’ve probably already picked up tons of info products that teach you things like …

  • How to Build a List

  • How to Drive Traffic to Your Site

  • How to Set Up a Blog

  • How to Create Your Own Info Products

  • How to Turn PLR Products Into Hot Selling Info Products of Your Own

  • How to Make Money in Affiliate Marketing, Selling Other People’s Products

  • How to Use Joint Ventures to Make More Money

Perhaps you’ve even tried some of the strategies that you’ve learned in these products. But most likely, you’re still sitting there with an empty bank account.

Does this sound like you?

Don’t be discouraged — it’s not your fault!

Blame it on the info product creators themselves. They’ve set you up for failure in a big way!

You see, what you’ve got from all of these products is the pieces of the jigsaw puzzle. You’re sitting there right now with all of the pieces you need to assemble the puzzle completely. BUT — you’re still missing one huge ingredient …

What you’re missing is the puzzle box!

If you’ve ever tried to put a puzzle together without looking at the picture you know just how hard this can be.

Can you put the puzzle together without the puzzle box?

Maybe. But it’s going to take you a LOT longer and you’re going to get a LOT more gray hair in the process, right?

And if it’s one of those ultra-complicated puzzles with 1,000 pieces or more, you’ll probably be sitting there next year at this same time with only a small portion of the puzzle assembled.

That’s the same thing that’s happening to you right now in trying to build your business …

You’re trying to assemble an ultra-complicated jigsaw puzzle that contains 1,000+ pieces without having a picture to look at to help guide you!

That’s where the DU Associate Membership comes in …

How Does the DU Associate Program Help YOUR Business?

The Associate Program is the puzzle box that you need to build your business! And, not only is it the crystal clear picture of what your finished puzzle should look like (in other words, the picture of what your finished puzzle will look like), it also includes ALL the Puzzle Pieces as well (in other words, the training on all the topics you NEED to build a successful business)!

You see, the jigsaw puzzle called “Your Business” really has 5 main pieces in it and a few additional pieces. The 5 main pieces are each one of the “5 core systems that EVERY business needs”. They are:

  • The Mindset System – This means having a positive mental attitude. Coming from a place of abundance instead of scarcity. It also means having a VERY detailed, crystal clear picture of where you want your life and business to be 1 to 3 years from now or 3 to 5 years from now. Without the right Mindset, you can do everything else perfectly in your business and still get no results. But get the Mindset piece right and even if you mess up on everything else you can still get HUGE results!

  • The Content Marketing & Relationship Building SystemThis means using WordPress to build your site so that you can have a conversation with people instead of talking at them and then tying your website to ALL your social media presences where your prospects are already hanging out.

  • The Monetization System – Online, people aren’t searching for “stuff” to buy. They’re looking for strangers with experience who can help them solve their problems. That means that they really want is INFORMATION. To you that means using Information Products to generate leads (new customers) so that you can then get them to buy ANYTHING else you’d like — whether that’s more information, physical products, memberships, services, affiliate products, etc.

  • The Leveraging System — Leverage means getting bigger results with less effort in a shorter amount of time. In your business, “Leverage” comes from using Joint Ventures and Strategic Alliances to get EVERY asset your business needs including products to sell, people to sell them to, traffic to a website, a list of buyers and subscribers.

  • The Traffic & Lead Generation System — Once you have the first 4 core systems, then everything is about driving more people to your website, getting them onto your list, and then turning them into loyal customers who not only buy over and over again but who also can’t help but tell EVERYONE they know about you. (These people are called “Raving Evangelists”.)  A part of your “Lead Generation System” is your “Entrepreneurial Authoring System”.  By writing a book that promotes your entire business, and turning it into a Best Seller, you can attract more leads, more JV Partners, and more success — effortlessly!

In addition to these 5 Core Systems that EVERY business needs in order to be successful, you’re going to need just a few more pieces before you can even attempt to put your jigsaw puzzle called “Your Business” together. These are:

  • Copywriting System – Understanding how people buy and why people buy is critical! And once you understand what makes people buy and why, having a system that you can use to create your message that ultimately sells your product or gets people to take some action is pretty easy! COPYWRITING means much more than written words on a page. It includes videos (after all, the script is simply an example of COPY), oral messages like those in a webinar, and anything else that conveys a message that gets people to take an action.

  • The “Triple Power Play” System – This system incorporates Video Marketing with Webinars and Podcasting to create a truly viral MACHINE that can not just send your hit counters soaring but can also kick-start a relationship that will product life long customers!

Within these 7 “systems” are ALL of the components that together create a VERY successful business!

Unfortunately, most information products at best give you one of these pieces. Some don’t even give you an entire piece but just one little tiny corner of it. No wonder why you’re not having any success in your business, right?

What if you could find a way to not only get ALL 7 pieces of Your Business’s Jigsaw Puzzle PLUS the Puzzle Box PLUS Help Putting Your Puzzle Together?

How much FASTER would you reach the levels of success you want in your business?

How much EASIER would it be to put your business together and get it making your dreams come true?
