Sarah Staar IM Newsletter – The $250K Pizza
Sorry I have been too busy to write a newsletter for a few weeks.
There is so much cool stuff going on in my head is about to explode and it’s difficult to know where to start ……
Wow I can’t believe we’re already in February!! I have to say January has been a complete blast…
I have to start somewhere so let’s start with the Marketers Cruise…..
As most of you know I spent a week on the Internet Marketers Cruise this January and learnt so many new things!
I got to hang out with Mike Filsaime, Tom Beal, and loads of other internet millionaires, including my good friend Tye Cohen.
Trust me on this, there is absolutely nothing like having a coffee or dinner with someone you’ve only ever met online, or whose books you have read.
It’s called interacting with a real person!!
It’s a completely different experience to seeing somebody on stage or on a webinar and being able to chat face-to-face with them in person can be a real game changer.
You get to ask any question you like and get a straight answer.
So let me ask you….
Imagine for a moment you were having dinner with three Internet marketing millionaires…
What questions would you ask?
It is difficult to understate how important the Marketers Cruise has been to me.
The big takeaway from my first cruise was that my small list was as responsive as people with much bigger lists and I was in the top half percent of serious marketers !
A few years ago on another cruise I bumped into Tye Cohen over pizza, we got on and did some JV deals that made me over $250k.
But the thing is… it’s not really about the money.
It’s about being with people who are driven and successful in the same market that you are.
It raises your sights, sometimes just knowing a thing is possible is enough to give you that spur to get on and do it !
Oh and did I forget to mention its a load of fun as well !
One of the weirdest things that happened to me on the cruise this year was getting my feet eaten by fish in Mexico, a fish pedicure!!
These are just some of the things that happen on the Internet marketers cruise….
Oh and the other fun thing was having a cookery class in how to create a 3 course Mexican dinner.
And we got to eat the results afterwards..
One of the highlights of the Marketers Cruise for me is the “Quick Tips” sharing exercise that takes place. You get so much good stuff from that you can fill a book with it !
So what I am going to do this year is put together a short video detailing some of the things I learnt on the Internet marketers cruise – simply because there are far too many things to list in a newsletter.
Give me a couple of weeks and I’ll send you a link to the video…
HOWEVER – In the meantime – here are some interesting tools that people told me about.
(By the way I discovered at least 30 to 40 new tools, way too many to put here, so what I’ll do is spread them over several newsletters !)
Not quite sure who told me this but it was probably at two in the morning at Pizza and Profits. Apparently by putting a live chat window on a sales page you can drastically increase conversion rates!! This is definitely something I’m going to try out. Zopim is the tool he recommended.
This is a business card scanner for your mobile phone. You take a photo of the card and all of the text is instantly converted and entered into your contacts list. You can then set it to automatically send out an email. This is great for networking events.
This is a really cool little gadget which I’m definitely going to order. It’s a single camera that does the job of a multi-camera shoot. Go look at the video on their website to get an idea of what this camera can do. If you put on workshops or seminars or like to do live video streaming on Facebook you probably want to get this camera. The only downside is it only works with iPads or iPhones.
This is similar to Facebook’s audience insights tool. You upload your email list to tower data, and they will clean your email list, and also give you extra data for all of your contacts. The extra data can be things like demographic information, how much people earn etc. powerful stuff!!

Would you like to come with me on the next Internet marketers cruise?
The Internet marketers cruise is a very exclusive event. In fact it usually sells out nine or 10 months in advance!! Which is why you don’t see any advertising for this event!
300 people have already bought their tickets! This is not hype this is fact!
I’m looking to bring 10 people from my Licence Partner Team and my email list on the cruise next year.
What I’d like to do is run several masterminds either over breakfast or over dinner on the cruise. This will only be available to the first 10 people that book.
These mastermind sessions will be all about you. How you can build your business in 2018. How you can make your first $10,000. During the cruise we will also work on your plan.
That’s why I am limiting it to 10 people.
In fact several people from my list have already booked places on the 2018 Internet marketers cruise,
The 2018 cruise will last for eight days and you can book a ticket for only $1,098.00 per person! Remember that’s fully inclusive of all your food!!
The great thing is you don’t have to pay the full amount up front! You can simply place a $300 deposit per person today and the remaining balance needs to be paid later in the year.
If you’d like to come on the cruise you do need to book your ticket within the next 2 to 3 weeks before all of the places are taken!!
Where else will you get to hang out with some of the worlds best known Internet marketers and also have a chance to hang out with Sarah Staar over dinner and on the beach!
All the best,
