A NEW Trillion-Dollar Mega-Trend bigger than Bitcoin, Ethereum and any other cryptocurrency

Transcript

There’s a new trillion-dollar mega-trend bigger than Bitcoin, Ethereum, or any cryptocurrency. Did you know about the NFTs and Gaming crypto markets? and how you can get in early for potential 1,000% returns?

Here’s what they say for that matter: It’s like the early days of the internet when a lot of people thought we were crazy. The best performing asset of the decade. Crypto will generate more wealth than the internet.

How much do you know about crypto? Are you already IN?

Are you an investor? a trader? are you a beginner?

Then I have amazing news.

56+ crypto industry insiders gather together for an epic event like no other to share their stories, secrets, expertise, and strategies to pull back the curtain on what’s going on behind the scenes in the crypto market right now.

It’s a documentary series that will take the world by storm.

It’s an explosive and controversial documentary with never seen before interviews that will change the way we think of crypto and money in general once and for all.

These top crypto experts share their raw, unfiltered, and uncensored insights into the crypto revolution.

What’s working right now and what’s next, the assets they use, how they got started, the risks, dangers, traps, rewards, threats, and regulations, and how to get started if you are a complete beginner.

And they will reveal why and how we arrived in this place. And why now we live amidst a new economic paradigm shift.

And the crypto revolution is not only an economic revolution. It’s not only about the financial gains. Crypto has literally the power to transform, change, and disrupt the way we shop, trade, communicate, invest, do business, and even create art and so much more.

It has the power to revolutionize our everyday lives.

And here’s the most important thing.

Even if you don’t invest in cryptocurrency, your life and the lives of your loved ones will get affected. Because this revolution affects everyone.

And this docu-series is called…Uncensored Crypto.

It’s a documentary to answer all your questions about crypto. Inside information never revealed before by top insiders and you won’t find anything like it anywhere on the web.

It’s organized by Michael Hearne, a serial entrepreneur with 15-years of experience in taking companies to new levels with his partners, Nate Hopkins and Waldon Fenster.

These are entrepreneurs that are always at the forefront of what’s happening.

Now…the best part.

The documentary is free to watch. All the episodes are free and the first episode airs on January 18.

Every episode will be available for 24 hours and you can watch it for free. After 24 hours, this episode will be taken down and a new episode will take its place.

These crypto experts will reveal what is crypto in simple language, how it works, what to buy, why it can’t be stopped, what’s coming next. How they got their money, how they invested it for growth, how they plan to keep it.

And most importantly, they will explain in detail how to get started before it’s too late

And a whole lot more…

We have a lineup of billionaires, former Wall Street traders, politicians, regulators, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, fund managers, artists, and activists to pull back the curtain of the multi-trillion dollar cryptocurrency revolution.

And as Dr. Martin Weiss says in episode 05:

This is one of the biggest, most revolutionary technologies in the history of mankind.

This is a shift that will positively disrupt almost every sector of the economy…create a more equal and free society…and unleash trillions of dollars in wealth. And, of course, our experts will detail how you can profit from the coming paradigm shift.

“7 Ideals” methodology – something ‘BIG’ is coming

The Special Weapon Of The 7 Ideals

Stay tuned as we’ll be revealing our secret ingredient in an upcoming workshop and we’ll be opening up a few spots for…

Is marketing an unnecessary expense? Is it a luxury only giant companies can enjoy? The majority of business owners believe so. This is especially true for them during tough economic times when consumers change their buying habits and spend less even on basic products.

And this is what my father believed as an entrepreneur for over 40 years (he retired a long time ago).

Marketing During A Recession

We live in an era of economic downfall since 2008 and consumers feel stressed and overwhelmed. They lost their confidence and their buying decisions shifted. They became cautious and spend money wisely.

For the majority of companies during tough times, marketing is one of the first expenses they cut in an effort to reduce overall costs.

But what all these mean for you as a business owner? Did you reduce production costs? Did you reduce your marketing expenses in an effort to keep a balance? Did you cut advertising altogether? What are you going to do to grow your company?

An Never-Ending Cycle

What goes around, comes around. The economy is no different, and sooner or later we will enjoy a turnaround.

But even during a recession, there is a huge opportunity for brands to spread their message to the world. Consumers are still exposed to advertisements all day long. They still spend money and they will spend more when times get better.

This is a huge opportunity that companies should take very seriously and should rethink before they cut their marketing expenses.

Moreover, in periods of economic downfall, certain industries thrive and new products are being developed. Consumers discover these new products and a cycle of economic growth begins slowly.

Reasons Why Advertising Is A Necessity At All Times

When a brand stops spending money on advertising in a slow economy, a snowball effect takes place.

They spend less on advertising, they reduce their exposure and visibility, and as a result, their revenue decreases. This is a critical moment where these brands decide to further cut expenses and so they cut advertising altogether.

And this is the perfect chance for new brands to get exposure and discovered by millions of potential customers.

New startups spend money to get advertised and so they enhance their presence in the marketplace, whether offline or online.

Companies that continue to spend money on marketing during a recession, manage to attract new consumers and competitors’ clients.

Not only but they enjoy marketing expenses at lower rates due to the slow economy.

People remember these companies as they watch their advertisements and consume their marketing messages, brochures, flyers, videos, banners, and other digital media.

Why giant companies like Coca-Cola, Adidas, or Apple still spend money on advertising? They’ve spent billions of dollars already for decades. Was not that enough to stay in their minds of consumers forever?

Some may think that they have spare money to spend. But that is not the reason why they keep on advertising.

It’s because people tend to forget.

Marketing is all about a company’s presence in the marketplace. It’s about connections, relationships, and interaction with consumers and clients.

When you stop being there, someone else will take your place, it’s inevitable!

The tough competition in every industry indicates that only companies with a strong presence will survive.

So what can you do to keep your brand in good shape?

Here’s a list of things you can do to help your company stay on top during tough economic periods.

Research/Point Of View

During a recession, consumers change their buying habits. This is a huge opportunity to redefine things for your company and your marketing strategy.

Research consumers’ new buying habits to check if there’s a shift in values related to your products and services.

Maybe they seek better pricing, longer durability, or other features. Or maybe all they want is a better customer experience or service.

Research the competition again to check what they do and where they spend their marketing budget. Maybe they changed ad spending habits as well.

Now is the time to win customers from competing companies. What do they do to delight their clients? What are they good at? What’s their unique selling proposition?

Can you offer what they offer at a lower cost or using another point of view? Can you excel in communication and offer excellent support beyond their expectations?

Research keywords people use related to your brand and your products. What changed? What stays the same? What new keywords are being used? How can you tap on these new keywords?

Which social or other online channels do they use to discuss and interact with each other? Did they change preferences?

Core Competencies

What distinguishes your enterprise from the competition? 

Keep on enhancing these values in the marketplace. Maybe use a new angle this time. Remind people that you are there, stronger than ever before offering the best products and services they can get.

Don’t forget your employees, your power force. Remind them that your company survived similar downfalls and that they are very important.

Managers and employees should come and work closer than ever before.

Managers should also prioritize their relationships with current clients and enhance them. You can’t afford to lose clients due to poor communication.

Product Line/Pricing

During a slow economy, consumers tend to prefer products with basic features avoiding luxurious and multi-purposed merchandise.

Can you eliminate some features of your products that consumers don’t need right now?

Can you offer simplicity and better performance?

Redefine your product line. Check for new suppliers with the same quality standards to create a unique angle in your offerings. Emphasize this change in your marketing messages.

Avoid creating new products from scratch as it’s very risky at this point and costs a lot of money. You could expand on new products and services once the economy turns around or when other strategies you implemented paid off so it might be worth researching ideas for new products without proceeding any further at the moment. New products based on current consumers’ behavior and preferences.

Are your current distributors effective? Who are not? Can you recruit new players in the game? Could you offer bonuses and other perks to top performers?

Can you offer deals on specific products and services? Even temporary.

Can you bundle certain products with something more? Extensive support, extended credit period for old and existing well-paying clients, or discounts with specific terms?

Can you extend your guarantees and free-trial periods?

Any change you make should be infused into your marketing collateral.

Promotional Strategies and Tactics

During a recession, consumers are afraid and they tend to over-analyze everything before they make a purchasing decision.

That’s OK.

Maybe it’s time to emphasize other features and values for your current products and services.

Humans are social and they all want to belong somewhere. No one wants to be alone, especially during tough times.

This is the perfect moment to adjust your promotional strategies and delight your current and potential customers with a feeling of community.

You’re fighting together, and together you’ll step out of the danger zone.

Change taglines and one-liners. Change the text on your digital banners and ads. Respond to consumers’ new needs and priorities.

If you’re are not using emotional triggers in your copywriting, now is the perfect time to do that. In an era of information overload, consumers respond only to certain marketing messages. Such messages that trigger their emotions.

Target emotions like fear, belonging, pain, anger, aspiration, hope, curiosity, shame, guilt, urgency, and so on.

Maybe it’s also time to invest in storytelling, as it’s the most powerful method that exists to attract customers and get them hooked on your every word.

Not just any story though, you need a strong language that persuades people to take action.

Consider hiring Web Market Support for that matter.

Don’t spend $1,000 per week on TV commercials, try radio instead.

Choose local low-cost ad tactics to check how the market responds.

Focus on online marketing as it’s the most effective promotional channel and results can be measured with accuracy.

Try to do some work on your own to increase your brand’s visibility. The business owner and managing directors should be present everywhere, both online and offline.

You don’t need to hire an ad agency to do that for you.

Here are a few ideas you can implement to advertise your brand on your own online for free.

Emails, social channels like LinkedIn, Pinterest, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Yelp, Quora, online directories, business forums, communities, newspapers, magazines, columnists, review sections on your website, business allies, joint ventures, relational advertisers, complementary companies, seminars, webinars, or even guerrilla marketing tactics.

Why not investing in affiliate marketing? There are thousands of eager marketers ready to promote the best brands that need their help without having to pay them upfront.

A very cost-effective channel where you only pay when sales occur. You just sacrifice a percentage of your profit but you don’t have to spend extra money beyond some basic expenses (ad network memberships or software).

I believe you already know that Amazon became an empire due to its affiliates.

Take advantage of this extremely powerful channel to spread the word during the recession. Don’t forget to give away cool bonuses and prizes for your top affiliates to further motivate them in promoting your brand non-stop.

As John Quelch says…”Successful companies do not abandon their marketing strategies in a recession; they adapt them”.

Final Thoughts

Brands that continue to invest in marketing during a recession are those who will reap the rewards when things get better.

These are the brands that people will remember when they are able to spend more money. 

For most companies, marketing is only secondary to what their primary offering is, but that is so far from reality.

This is why companies that are aware of the situation thrive and this is why others die.
