Perry Belcher effectively retired from Internet marketing in 2009, yet that which he and Ryan Diess created during their collaboration has continued to impact marketers around the world. I have spent much of the past few weeks evaluating what worked in my business in 2010 and what needs more of my attention. In addition to completing the standard analysis, where did my traffic come, what is the profile of the customers I attracted, which marketing efforts provided the best results, etc., I also looked at a few intangibles.
I looked back to see what training programs I was able to gain the most value from and which provided me with actionable content that resulted in moving my business forward. I was actually a little surprised by how much I gained from re-listening to “Automatic Daily Income” and “Getting Money From Google,” I purchased both of these courses a longtime ago and found them worth coming back to again and again.
I also gained alot from my personal interactions with Perry Belcher – I interviewed him for my Internet Business Blueprint podcast on the eve of his final product launch with Ryan Diess in 2009. During the lead up to that program, I had a couple of great telephone conversations with Perry from which I gleaned several golden nuggets on marketing and social media. The lessons from those conversations contained principles that I still teach today.
Here is a Recording of the “Perry Belcher Unplugged” Interview
Perry’s exit from the scene was pretty swift and I am not sure if I took the time back then to let him know how much he helped me. His impact is still evident in my business and I wanted to take a moment to say thank you, to put that sentiment out into the universe and vow to pay it forward.
Perry Belcher, retire in peace (R.I.P.) and may you have success in the next chapter of your journey. One of the things I like most about Perry is that he was always open and honest about his mistakes, shortcomings, and limitations. As confident and powerful as he is, he is also aware that like all of us, he is a flawed human being. I know that I am and so the same may be said for you. It really doesn’t matter as long as you strive to become better, add value for other people, and leave your mark on the world in a meaningful way.
In retrospect, I not only learned allot from Perry about business, I also learned about life and how to confront it head on. So by sharing this interview I hope that you will gain by one or two golden nuggets that will help you to breakthrough to a higer level of achievement.
Please be sure to post your comments after listening to this interview and let me know what lessons you take away. Then take action upon what you learn and let me know if I can help you in anyway. The interview is classic Perry Belcher and well worth another listen or two!
I am here to help you succeed!
