McDonalds – Mr Kroc’s wisdom

Newsletter Michael Thornley

Hey,

When Ray Kroc started building the McDonald’s empire in 1956, he never thought of himself as being in the hamburger business.

To him, it was not the hamburgers which were his product; it was the systems he created that would sell
the hamburgers.

These systems (or what you might call the ‘business blueprint’) consisted of detailed procedures, duplicatable processes, and
accompanying training that made running the McDonalds business as easy as possible.

That doesn’t mean you’re guaranteed success with a McDonalds franchise, but it does mean you have a much higher likelihood of
succeeding than if you try to start a hamburger business yourself from scratch.

Today, if you want to buy a McDonalds you’re looking at an investment of close to $1m or more, depending on where it’s located.

And so far, a lot of people have bought in.

Did you know there’s over 30,000 McDonalds outlets around the world today? (at close to $1m each, you do the math on that)

Many are in America, but they’re also all over Asia, Europe, Australia…

In fact, the famous Golden arches logo is more recognized across the planet than the symbol of christ!

When you think about it, McDonalds as a company are in the high-ticket sales business.

Each time they sell a unit, they’re bringing in close to 7 figures.

In the online marketing world, you can also be in the high-ticket sales business.

And you should be too.

It’s far easier to find a few high-paying customers to create an annual 6 figure per year income, than trying to sell dirt cheap products for
$10 or less to the masses.

Personally, I’d rather make $10,000 from making one sale online, instead of trying to find 1,000 people who will pay $10 for an ebook for the same amount of money.

Now is it harder to get a $10,000 sale than a $10 sale?

Of course it is.

But is it 1,000 times harder?

Not even close.

As long as you have the right system and training in place, getting paid up to $10,000 on each deal you do is very doable.

And if you’d like to learn how, watch this short video:

Digital Information Products are the go and are Our Future! Don’t get left behind…..

Digital Information Products are the go and are Our Future! Don’t get left behind….. 

digital-products MOBE
Today’s post was inspired by a message from one of my Mentors
Matt Lloyd, CEO of MOBE (My Online Business Education). 

Now I am a Titanium Business Consultant for MOBE. Yet the purpose of my blog today is to share with you the mindset and apparent reluctance exhibited by some people when it comes to purchasing or trusting in digital information products. 

My business structure is based on digital information products. These include my published Amazon Kindle Books and my Business Education material with over 100 courses and resources available to you through my partnership with MOBE.

” As someone who markets digital information online, you will from time to time meet people who ridicule the idea of paying money in exchange for something they can’t hold in their hand.

Such people don’t understand the potential value of ideas—information you can use to do things, including making money.” Matt Lloyd

This does apply in some cases and in particular to those of an ‘maturing ‘ age   The younger ones have mostly accepted that we are already well and truly in the ‘Information Age’ (and yes, many of us older ones like me have also! )

” The kind of person who argues that buying digital information is essentially buying nothing (because you can’t hold it in your hand) is the same kind of person who would rather hold on to his $100 and suffer in freezing temperatures—perhaps become ill or even die—because it doesn’t buy him something he can hold in his hand.”

Indeed…. and perhaps they will never change. Yet let us look at just some examples of where one pays for ‘Information’ and I share the following from Matt Lloyd with you here:

” Digital information and downloads are the most modern method for doing something we’ve been doing for centuries: paying people for their knowledge and experience. Here are a few examples of that:

  • Education. You can pay five or six figures for a college education. You aren’t paying all that cash just for that piece of paper you get at the end, are you?
  • Lawyers. It can be quite costly to hire a lawyer to handle your will, divorce, incorporation, or to defend you in a legal matter. What do you carry out of their office in exchange?
  • Consultants. You hire them to advise you on how to expand your business or how to redecorate your home. Even a personal trainer is a consultant for your physical improvement. What do you take delivery of after you pay them?
  • Tax preparers. Unless you truly love to do your own taxes, most of us are more than grateful to be able to pay an expert to do it for us and, with electronic filing, walk out their office completely “empty-handed.”
  • Plumbers, mechanics. They often give you the benefit of their knowledge, even if they don’t have to replace parts.
  • Movies, concerts, sporting events. You buy a ticket and attend the show or event and all you get for the price of your ticket is an experience—nothing you can put in your hand or your pocket (except the actual ticket).”

Digital Products offer so much more!

Therefore we have already been accustomed to this type of service only that now there is so much more that is being offered via the Internet the World over..

I know that from when I first discovered the Net that my knowledge and skills have been enhanced immensely. The people I have met ‘online’and continue to learn from in life, is totally amazing. AND I have grasped this opportunity with both hands and learnt what I can in order to continually improve upon my experiences and knowledge.

So if you have had some reluctance in expanding your horizons on the Net, then it is time to push out from your comfort zone as you are missing out on so much information and personal growth.  I am here to assist you and guide you. So please do not be afraid to ask for guidance

One last question for you…. Have you read my E-books listed on Amazon yet? Check them out HERE!

Are You Proud Of What You Did Today?

proud healthy-mind-healthy-body

Whenever you work on a computer and exit out of your work you always get the same question.

“Do you want to save the changes you made?”

And when it comes to papers or reports it’s an easy choice. You click yes.

But think about this.

If right before you went to bed at the end of the day a banner popped up in front of you and asked “do you want to save the changes you made today?” would you?

Make no mistake. When it comes to making your dreams come true you either get closer or further away every day.

So tonight when you go to bed will you want to save the changes you made to your life today?

Don’t think too hard about it. Because now you have a chance to make the answer an automatic hell yes.

If you found a job that allowed you to work from you computer and make thousands every week doing it you’d save those changes right?

If you found a simple and streamlined way to make a fortune then you’d save those changes right?

If you found a system that made people money so well that if it didn’t work for you then you’d get your money back x 10 then you’d save those changes right?

You’re going to want to save today. Because you just found all that and more.

Limitless  ( Free Book ) is a personal account of my journey from a small farm in Australia to the helm of a $100 million company.

In this book, you’ll learn the secret to my success (The HTAM Method), and how other people have leveraged it to earn a documented $51 million to date.

 Within 5 minutes of ordering your physical copy of Limitless, you’ll get instant online access to the first 2 chapters, the audio recordings, and the HTAM Quickstart Training.

 

Dear Friend,
The economy has changed forever.

The days of working for a company for 35 years and retiring with a pension are over.

For some, this is scary.

For others, it’s exciting.

It all depends on your viewpoint.

You see, every major “shift” in our economy presents new opportunities to profit.

Did you know? …

More millionaires were created in the Great Depression than any other time in American history because it was an ideal time to start a new business.

Real estate was cheap and assets could be bought at fire sale prices.

Today, our world economy has shifted again … this time as a result of the Internet and globalization.

Those who see this can become millionaires just like those who saw opportunity in the Great Depression.

Now

I first noticed this shift 7 years ago, but I didn’t know how to profit from it … yet.

I spent the next 2 years working long hours (and spending everything I had) but I finally broke through and “cracked the code.”

It was the beginning of my “HTAM Method” that would go on to help generate over $100 million in the next 5 years.

Since then, I’ve shared this idea with thousands of people all over the world who have made a combined total of over $51 million with it.

And after 5 years, I’m finally ready to put it all down in a book called …

Limitless MOBE free-book

Best wishes,

Limitless Matt-Lloyd-Signature

Matt Lloyd

Founder of MOBE

P.S. Remember, in this book you’ll learn how to use my HTAM Method to create a substantial income in your spare time. Regular people in over 37 countries have made over $51 million in the last 5 years with this … and you can join them.

Yes, this is about money. But it’s also about freedom … personal freedom.

Your copy of Limitless is free.

So are the audio recordings, the first 2 chapters, and the HTAM Quickstart Training.

All I ask is that you cover a small shipping & handling fee of $9.95 (slightly higher postage outside USA).

A paltry sum…

Considering that you can make $1000s from just ONE lesson in one chapter in Limitless… this is a STEAL.

There’s just one catch…

I may decide to start charging for this book at anytime, so act now to get this for FREE while you still can.

Click the button below now and fill out your information to get your copy rushed to you.

Limitless MOBE Free-book

 

Growing up on a farm in the Australian outback, he learned the value of hard work at a young age, and was exposed to what went into building a business – and the idea that there were no hand-outs in life.

By the time he was in college, he had already started dozens of small businesses – from selling Kangaroo furs, to farming marron, to mowing lawns, he was willing to try anything!

During those late college years, he came across a home business opportunity on the internet.

Knowing nothing about online marketing, he became obsessed with figuring it out… but 9 months later, with over $40,000 invested and having dropped out of college, had still not made a single sale.

He kept persisting, and, slowly results started to show up.

In mid-2011, Matt created ‘MOBE’ as the solution to the biggest problems the industry was facing. The company and community has continued to grow ever since.

Now an 8-figure / year business with over 60 staff, and over 10,000 active partners, the company puts on live masterminds all around the world for serious entrepreneurs.

Over 370,000 entrepreneurs subscribe to the MOBE list and have benefited from MOBE’straining and systems.”
