Entrepreneur Associate Leads Report

Leads are not only important…

They are the lifeblood of your business

Bitter.io campaign report (December 8, 2018)

Deb Williams is a Markethive subscriber, Entrepreneur upgrade and Markethive staff writer as well as my Marketing Manager. Now aint that a mouth full. This is her report. I will editorialize at the end:


The popular advertising site, Bitter.io is proving to be very lucrative. A simple system that attracts cryptocurrency, ICO and blockchain enthusiasts on a global level. The users on this platform are very crypto-conscious and are looking for opportunities in the industry. They are also advertisers and marketers requiring a system such as Markethive.

I recently started a campaign spending only $10 worth of Bitcoin, which gives a total of 10,000 clicks. Generally, these campaigns run for around 3 days, or until all 10,000 hits have been executed. Although results can vary, this particular campaign resulted in 25 signups intoMarkethive over the 3 day period.

So $10 worth of bitcoin produced 25 new Markethive associates which equate to $0.40c a lead! That is very inexpensive considering the information I was able to capture. I now have their email, phone number and Social Media account they clicked on to sign up.

Additionally, they have subscribed to the Markethive autoresponder email system and receiving emails daily for the next 30 days. As we move forward with the system updates and launch of the Airdrops and micropayments, the email broadcasting feature is a great way to nurture the relationship.

As Bitter.io focuses on cryptocurrency, I used the Airdrop capture page with the short video explaining the marketing tools. The text I used addressed being the first Market Network on Blockchain, as follows;

The 1st Market Network On Blockchain! – Get Paid to Engage PLUS GET 500 COINS FREE with our INFINITY AIRDROPS just for Subscribing – Join FREE – STAY Free

Given the current trend and news of ICO's also airdrops and the impact it has had on the crypto community at large, I believe was the reason this campaign was a success. Furthermore, the changes taking place along with the privacy and data issues of Social Media are escalating and people are looking for other options.


Here is how I see this. The Markethive system was designed to create these results. After all, we are giving away a system very similar to what an Inbound Marketing company called Marketo (sold for over $2000 per month) away for free. Plus we are also offering our first Airdrop of 500 coins just to sign up into Markethive for free. A pretty attractive offer, yes?

With the Entrepreneur upgrade program, we also match those 500 coin drops to your account. In other words, When someone signs up through your account, AND, you are upgraded to the Entrepreneur program, we also give you 500 coins.

Deb has shown some data that I can use to illustrate the lucrative nature of what we have delivered to you. She put 25 people into Markethive, in 3 days, for $10.

Now the assumptions. Assuming we average 25 people per $10 campaign and run a $10 campaign 10 times per month (One month divided by 25 people per 3 days for $10) So that cost $100 per month. Spread that out to one year (12 months) and the cost is $1200 for 3,000 subscribers 

In one year we can speculate Markethive coin running at a nickel per coin? I mean Steemit's coin is at $35 as of this writing and the entire crypto coin market is way way waaayyy down. So .05 per coin is reasonable to make this example. Are we good with that? Because at one nickel per coin times your 500 coins you get for signing up into Markethive and the 3000 subscribers that you brought through you while upgraded to Entrepreneur, 3000 x 500 + 500= 1,500,500 (One Million Five Hundred Thousand and Five Hundred) coins x .05 (nickel) = $75,025 return. Not too bad. Now you see why Deb is so excited she is screaming day and night. Well not really, but she should be.

You also have to take into consideration the Entrepreneur program costs $100 per month as well, that being an additional $1200 at the end of the year. But the Entrepreneur program is generous, and also pays you back more than you pay in. Literally! It returns a 10% of an ILP. If you know what an ILP is, well more excitement.

Do you want to know how to do this? It is pretty simple. And we show you how to live, every weekend. Check the calendar. Oh and the site we are using for leads is @ http://bitter.io

NEW ADDITION COMING TO MARKETHIVE – POLLS & SURVEYS

Thomas Prendergast

Inbound Marketing For Dummies

Inbound Marketing For Dummies "or"

When Out Bound Marketing and I separated our ways for good!

In 1996 or there about, I was approached by a well-known marketer, David D’Arcangelo. We were associates at that time in the Network Marketing business and we both lived in San Diego. He pitched me on a new deal he felt was a considerable advantage in the industry, had an organization begun (He has a large sphere of influence from his radio shows). He was proposing he run major ads in papers like USA Today, etc. and round robin the incoming leads to the new distributors. He felt that he and I could work together on this and build a sound solution for the ‘rank and file” recruits. With his name and advertising and the advantage I had because I owned a big marketing system (which came to be known as Veretekk).

I enrolled about 10 people based on this agreement and we scheduled our first tele bridged conference call. My wife Annette (my girlfriend at the time) and I were excited before the call began. On the call nothing was said about a Co-op distribution round robin. What did transpire, was David took control of the call from me, then quickly introduced his friend John Green and pitched the leads John Green was selling from CuttingEdgeMedia (This is my recollection).  John Green and David claimed they were awesome pre interviewed leads and cost $20 each.

Annette immediately expressed her anger that we had been baited and switched, and the call was a disaster. I was also angered as I have always found buying leads a foolish pursuit. Ho9wever, this time< I wanted to use these leads to conduct a real survey.

I paid for 100 leads, about $2000 for the 100 super hot, pre interviewed hot ready to join my business leads. I also bought the USA Today white pages on CD Rom as a control subject.

I spent 4 weeks and tracked the results in an Excel Spread sheet. I called every lead in that database. I called everyday of the week. At 3 different times for each lead at 10am, 2pm, and 6pm. I also called Saturdays at 12 noon and 8 pm in their time zone until I actually talked to someone.

Of the John Greene leads 80% of the list was contacted. 20% never answered or numbers were disconnected or wrong numbers. Of the remaining 80% I was able to talk to 80% said very nasty profanity at me, demanded I remove them from the list, and were extremely angered and some threatened me with legal action. Even when I explained I was doing “lead” research, told them who sold them and that they were supposedly interviewed.

Not one was interviewed. Either they called me a liar or the provider a liar or said they had no recollection of being interviewed. There were 2 out of the 100 who expressed some interest in the business, but further calls were never answered and nothing ever came from these halfhearted interests.

USA Today leads

In sharp contrast I must report on the 100 names and phones numbers I pulled from the USA Today white pages disk as a control to the research. Of the 100 I called on the same routine, 97% connected. Not one of them expressed anger, called me names or hung up on me. Most of them were still not interested, but I did get 12 very interested to join and 3 actually did join.

This is Outbound Marketing

This technique to cold call is a daunting process even back in the days, even for professionals. Today it is virtually a total waste of time. When people do answer and don’t know who you are 96% just hang up. The others usually take some time to insult you. It is over. Outbound marketing is now a total waste of time and money.

It is time to understand Inbound Marketing

So I have produced this blog and video for the Dummies out there. It is Inbound Marketing for Dummies. If you are ever going to find success, you are going to have to embrace, understand and intitiate the process called Inbound Marketing.

You are in luck, because Markethive is one of the top state of the art, “Inbound Marketing” platforms in the world and it is the only one that is free!

Inbound Marketing For Dummies

By now you probably heard some of the buzz about inbound marketing. But just what exactly is it?

Inbound marketing is like marketing with a magnet vs. a megaphone.  Its marketing based on quality content, that attracts a steady stream of qualified leads.

At this point and time outbound marketing has completely lost it edge. Did you know that the average person sees anywhere from 3000 to 20,000 outbound advertisements per day? No wonder no one is paying any attention.

Shouting at your audience with a megaphone is no longer the most cost-effective or productive way of marketing your business, Inbound Marketing is.  The cool part is that inbound marketing methods are almost always less time-consuming and less expensive than traditional lead generation methods.  

Not only are they cheaper but they are more effective.  Inbound leads are eight times more likely to become customers, and close at a much higher rate.  In fact while outbound marketing has an average closing rate of 1.7%, inbound marketing has an astounding closing rate of 14.6%.

All that savings means the companies that Focus primarily on inbound marketing, typically spend 62% less per lead than companies that don't.  So how does it work?  

Think of it like a giant funnel, prospects come in at the top, happy customers come out the bottom.  Today 88% of consumers are conducting their own product research online before making a purchase.  

Therefore the key to being found and trusted on the web is generating relevant content to what people are searching for.  This is the first part of our inbound marketing funnel.  Once you have their attention we need to capture their information.  

Generally this is done with more awesome content in the form of digital media such as free offers, articles, case studies, videos, free services and more.  The next part of our marketing funnel is where we create an automated system, by which we turn these qualified leads which came in from our offers into Happy paying customers, who refer more new customers because of all the awesome content you're putting up.  

At Markethive we deliver inbound marketing methods such as SEO, Broadcasting, Capture Pages, Social Media, massive reach, Work Groups, Co-op Advertising videos, and so much more, to establish you as the authority in your industry, and create a client magnet that will generate a constant stream of qualified leads just for you.  Let us help you to establish an online presence, attract new leads, and convert prospects all on autopilot.
