This episode is brought to you by Tenfold Traffic.

The only projects I take on currently are performance-based relationships.

What that means is…

All marketing would go through me on my own dime, and we negotiate a revenue share.

I don’t want someone to give me money if I don’t generate a return for them.

But, if I am making someone a ton of money, then I want to share in the revenue.

In other words, I want to participate in the full value I am creating.

Right now, I am only looking for one or two companies a year to pour my heart and soul into and to have as partners.

An ideal partner is someone who has a converting funnel and can handle scale and let me work my magic.

If you are a company that knows your lifetime value of a client and wants to spend as much as you can to acquire a customer and dominate the market, then I am your person.

If you are looking for a partner, I am your person, and if you are looking for a vendor, then there are several people I have vetted and can refer you to.
