Time sensitive – essential tool available Free – TODAY ONLY – 24 May 2009.

I don’t do that much promotion of other people’s products, but here is one of the exceptions.

John Delavera’s new Delavo.

I could the say that the big attraction is that it’s free – but that would be misleading.

The big attraction is that it constitues a major piece of software that everyone involved in internet sales needs – an ecommerce platform. Specifically, a tool for managing sales, membership site subscriptions and affiliates.

You’re going to need something like that sooner or later. And you are going to need to use the most feature-rich tool you can afford because, as your business grows, so will your needs.

Even though it’s free (TODAY ONLY!) Delavo is as feature-rich as you’ll need – for now. But you’ll also have the option to purchase enhancements as you need them. So this really is an opportunity not to be missed.

I expect to be upgrading from my current JV Manager 1 tool (also created by John) to Delavo over time for exactly those reasons.

I’ll not say more about Delavo here, but strongly encourage you to get it NOW. You need to register on John’s list immediately in order to get it because at some time today, this opportunity will disappear.

There are other things John is selling at the same time – of course – with the same deadline that may or may not be relevant to you, but I’ll mention briefly because there a connection with me.

1. Turbo Membership with huge bonuses

You can join John’s Turbo Membership and get a huge collection of bonuses.

Check what’s on offer. Despite what John would like to believe, his membership is NOT suitable for everyone. But there is so much on offer, it’s quite likely you’ll find enough that’s relevant to your operation to make it very good value.

I should also mention the link between Turbo Membership and the IM Index.

John provides his Turbo Members with a DAO Installer each month that contains his core products. This allows IM Index Mind Map owners to download and install those products automatically into the correct locations in their IM Index Mind Map – AND creates a log of what was stored where.

If you’ve ever been a member of a site that provides large quantities of content to be downloaded each month, you’ll understand how valuable that is!

(P.S. For now at least, I’m the person who creates those DAO Installers, so you can be sure everything is being organized correctly!)

2. Delaverian Marketing Course

John also has, what he believes to be, a revolutionary new course coming in June (delayed for various reasons).

As a Turbo Member, you’ll get 50% discount off of that. I know nothing about that, so I cannot comment on it, other than to say that John is a very smart person and you should expect something out of the ordinary. (Mark Joyner has given John an endorsement, which should count for something!)

But whatever you do – get on the list to get Delavo for free!

The following is an extract from my forthcoming Twitter Professionals System – a comprehensive guide to setting up and running Twitter accounts professionally. The system covers all the techniques currently doing the rounds about “building a massive following”, but that is put into context as just one element of a bigger strategy.

If you would like to be informed when the Twitter Professionals System becomes available – and get it at an early-bird discount – please leave your details here. You can be assured I won’t abuse your inbox with pointless promotions.

This article is one of the sub-topics in the Conversations topic within the Learning section. (There are also Reference and Step-By-Step sections.)


“How To Be A Great Twitter Conversationalist”

Having explained all the reasons why conversations on Twitter are crucial, the question now is – how can you be a great conversationalist on Twitter?

The key, I believe, is adopting the right frame of mind. Relating the Twitter world to the face-to-face world – where we are more familiar with conversations – is a good starting point.

Conversations on Twitter are surprisingly similar to certain types of face-to-face conversations. Of course, you cannot compare them to long conversations over a coffee or at a dinner party, but they are very similar to the short exchanges you have when you bump into someone in the street but have no time to stop and chat.

You have, perhaps, 2 or 3 exchanges, and then part company and go about your business.

Perhaps a better analogy though, is a big, noisy party where very few people initially know each other. It is too noisy to sustain a long involved conversation, but not so noisy that you cannot overhear what people are saying around you.

Also, it is a bit of an odd party because everyone is chattering away to everyone, and to no-one in particular. But because it IS a party, everyone agrees that it is perfectly OK to strike up a conversation with complete strangers.

Every now and then, in all the conversations you overhear, someone says something that resonates with you, and it triggers a short one-to-one exchange – which other people can hear.

Over time, you get to know a few of the people at the party and learn something about them. Conversations you have with those people then become a bit more directed, and you build on what you already have learned about each other.

If you imagine Twitter like that, then the normal principles of good conversation apply as much to Twitter as to the face-to-face conversations.

Here are some of those principles:

Encourage people to talk about themselves: ask about THEM:

“Where are you based?”

Look for commonality between you and the person you are talking with and emphasise that

“You like books on philosophy, I see. Me too! What’s your favourite?”

Take a stance – express an opinion. Black/White is much more interesting than Grey

“Twitter’s gonna find it really hard to monetize their business. Should have sold to Google”

Be controversial (but try not to alienate too many of your followers)

“I disagree. People shouldn’t whinge about auto-DMs”

Be humourous. Don’t be afraid to poke gentle fun at people (sensitively!)

“Hmm. I sea yu have speling issuze. Want lessens frum me?”

Ask questions – open-ended/leading/specific

“Do you tweet more from your mobile or your computer?”

If you know about their family, ask about them

“How did your daughter’s exam go?”

The bottom line is – it’s a party! Have fun!

Here’s a quick summary of why this article is important to you…

You can get a FREE copy of what is likely to be one of the best and most expandable sales and affiliate eCommerce tools available – provided you act before 9am EST on Tuesday 19th (that’s AM not PM!)

Here’s the full story….

Master marketer, John Delavera, is celebrating his birthday, as usual, with a major launch.

But not content with one launch, he’s doing three things at once. Sort of.

The trouble is, I think he’s confused the hell out of many prospects with his sales site – and the delays have not helped.

Nevertheless, when you peel away the confusion, there’s some real gold underneath!

Here is my understanding of what is going on:

1. Delavo eCommerce for FREE.

The launch of John’s Delavo eCommerce product is delayed by a day or so. This gives you the chance to get it for FREE provided you register on his notification list BEFORE 9am EST on Tuesday 19th.

So even if you do nothing else, get yourself on that list right away, and get hold of that product. It’s more advanced than JV Manager (what I currently use), but not as advanced as the very expensive Fantasos (but it could be as advanced…. You’ll need to go read about it to understand.)

But take it from me – this is one free download that really does have high value and worth taking the time to make use of.

I will be upgrading to it, for sure.

2. Turbo Membership with huge bonuses

Next. You can join John’s Turbo Membership and get a huge collection of bonuses – provided you join before 24th May.

Check what’s on offer. Despite what John would like to believe, his membership is NOT suitable for everyone. But there is so much on offer, it’s quite likely you’ll find enough that’s relevant to your operation to make it very good value.

I should also mention the link between Turbo Membership and the IM Index.

John provides his Turbo Members with a DAO Installer each month that contains his core products. This allows IM Index Mind Map owners to download and install those products automatically into the correct locations in their IM Index Mind Map – AND creates a log of what was stored where.

If you’ve ever been a member of a site that provides large quantities of content to be downloaded each month, you’ll understand how valuable that is!

(P.S. For now at least, I’m the person who creates those DAO Installers, so you can be sure everything is being organized correctly!)

3. Delaverian Marketing Course

Finally, John also has, what he believes to be, a revolutionary new course coming in June (delayed for various reasons).

As a Turbo Member, you’ll get 50% discount off of that. I know nothing about that, so I cannot comment on it.

I hope that makes everything a bit clearer.

Remember, at the very least, get on the notification list to get free access to the Delavo eCommerce tool.
