One year ago this week I had the opportunity to spend a full day with some of the top internet marketers alive today. There were about 50 of us that day, and we were all gathered in a private conference room in Atlanta, Georgia. As I scanned the room, I realized that these were the exact people I would have chosen to be surrounded by, if I had been aware that I had a choice in the matter.
Craig Perrine was one of them. I didn’t recognize him at first, with his long blond curls and baseball cap. But someone mentioned his name, and when he looked up I felt the inspiration for what I am doing today online.
Craig and Joe Vitale (AKA Mr Fire) wrote a book called ‘Inspired Marketing’. This type of marketing allows you to come from the heart and reach the people who will resonate with your message. Instead of selling, you are offering what you do to those who are interested in receiving it. If you are involved in any type of business, online or off, read this book and experience what they are talking about.
Two weeks ago Craig was speaking at Armand Morin’s event. The night before he joined a group of about 8 of us to answer any questions we had. I asked him about my copywritng and he shared another inspiring story with our group. When he spoke the following day the words flowed and the room was mesmerized by his stillness and insight. I have accomplished more since I’ve been back from that conference than I did during the previous three months. Coincidence? No – I was inspired.
