We’re always testing new marketing tactics on our various internet businesses. Last week we came up with a real winner! Within just 7 minutes of implementation we were number one on YouTube AND Google for the top keyword phrase in our niche!
(By the way, we’ll be demonstrating what we did in detail at the next Our Internet Secrets workshop. If you haven’t yet booked, here’s the link again:
So what did we do to get to the top of Google so fast? Here are the steps we took:
1. Use the Google Keyword tool to find a relevant four-word phrase in your niche that has several thousand searches per month
2. Create a short video (2-3 minutes) with a call to action to go to the website. We used a great free tool called “Go Animate” to create a video in about 20 minutes.
3. Upload the video to YouTube, using a very specific formula for the title, description, tags, etc (too much to go into here – we’ll show you exactly what we did at the event)
4. View the video in a couple of different browsers
5. “Ping” the page, so Google knows your video exists (again, we’ll demo this at the event)
Result? Within 7 minutes we were at number one on YouTube, above a video of Steve Jobs that had over 16 million views!
The cool thing is, once you’re number one or two on YouTube, you are usually also on the first page of Google for the same phrase! And if you have a link from the video to your website, then it’s a great free-traffic generator.
Now we’re excited to share exactly what we did (plus a bunch of other new marketing tactics!) with the people who join us at the next Our Internet Secrets workshop.
Here are the details and booking link again:
Dates: 22-25 February
Venue: Mantra Legends, Surfers Paradise, Gold Coast
And here’s the link to book:
Remember, as a client of ours you qualify for two tickets to this info-packed event (there are still a few seats left):
Andrew and Daryl Grant
PS: We shared the YouTube strategy with a few of our coaching clients last week, and many of them are already having success with it. Here are some comments from those who learned it:
“The Youtube strategy is so simple and so quick! I can see it’s very easy to implement.”
Lisa Howell, Mermaid Waters, Queensland
“The Youtube videos are fast, easy to implement and obviously work!”
Heather Fields, Buderim, Queensland
“Great opportunity to quickly develop a warm list using Youtube videos.”
Peter Doogan, Monbulk, Victoria
“I loved the Youtube strategy. Quick, easy and effective.”
Min Collie-Holmes, Gold Coast Hinterland, Queensland
“Like the Youtube video creation. I can understand the logic behind it.”
Louis Grey, Brisbane, Queensland
[Julie Lewin Case Study] How a Cancer Survivor Increased Her Worth 10x & Built A 6 Figure Income Through Her Passion In Celestial Healing
Posted on 12. Oct, 2012 by Our Internet Secrets.
Some of you may know Julie Lewin, who did a fantastic job at our support desk for many years. What you may not know about Julie might shock you. In 2000, Julie was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and could not speak for an entire year.
What would you do if this happened to you?
She made a promise that if she ever got the ability to speak back, she would live her passion and inspire others to live their dreams….
In 2008 Julie attended an OurInternetSecrets event and hasn’t looked back since. She’s inspired thousands with her intuitive healing techniques, spoken as an expert on many stages, has put together a celestial consciousness retreat (which made her $16500 in one week) and now charges $497 session, up from $50 session a few short years ago.
Julie is a shining example of what you can do if you put your mind to it and apply some of the strategies we’ll be teaching at our 4 Day workshop.
You can listen to some of the fantastic results Julie has achieved in the video.
Here are some of the key lessons Julie learned in her journey:
1. Challenge yourself on your mentors. They can help accelerate the process and save you hours of pain and lots of money!
2. How much you are worth? Don’t be tied down to your own pre-conceived ideas. Create massive value and don’t be afraid to charge what you’re worth.
3. If you get a chance, work to learn and soak up as much as you can from people who are succeeding.
4. Believe in yourself and can climb mountains you never thought you could previously climb.
Julie: Who’s learned something today? Who’s still waiting to learn something? This is a real honour. “How to Increase Your Fees 10 times and Build a Six-Figure Income” – that’s what I want to talk to you about in the next 15 to 20 minutes.
It’s taken me a long time to get to this point. That little blue down the bottom there, I only got that yesterday. Nothing like a deadline to make you do something. I finished my PowerPoint presentation an hour ago and Daryl said, “Are you ready?” I said, “Yes.” So, here we go.
Who is Julie Lewin? I haven’t got lots of words for you. I like pictures. They say it speaks a thousand words. I was born in Gympie and I didn’t stay there long. My parents went roaming and we ended up in Mt. Isa. Do you see that stack there, the big one? That is half a kilometre high and I’ve got a story about that that I’ll tell you later.
I’m married to the amazing Frank and some of you may have met Frank. He’s quite a character. We got married 30 years ago in October and yes, we did have two babies. They wouldn’t let me put their pictures up here so I’ve just written “two babies.” We raised our children in Brisbane. These are my children now. We ran away from home two and a half years ago and left them with everything. We started again in the country and we love it.
Oh, there is a little bit of something else about me. I’m a healer and a medical intuitive. That might be a bit woo-hoo for some of you and it was for me when I was told that 28 years ago. What can I say about that? I discovered that I could see inside people’s bodies and locate the root cause of their discomfort. It didn’t happen overnight, but I decided I wanted to have that life, so I practiced every single day for the last 28 years.
Why have I got the Olympics symbols there? I met an Olympian in this room. We actually went to the function on the Saturday night and she started telling me about the Olympian mindset. I thought, “Wow! I have a mindset like that, but I’m not an Olympian.”
Let’s see what an Olympian mindset is. It’s determination, it’s inner strength, you’re hard working and persistent, you’re self-motivated like you light that light in your heart. No one else can do that for you. You can deal with adversity and you have tenacity. When you have those qualities, it means you can pick yourself up off the bathroom floor where you’ve been sobbing, get back into your life, and keep going with whatever it is that you want to do. You’re optimistic and positive and you have the ability to be really focused.
That’s what I’ve done over the last 28 years in a lot of different areas of my life. I practiced for nine years. I got to go on that TV show The Extraordinary where they tested me on film because I rang them up and said, “I can see inside of people’s bodies.”
They said, “Oh yeah, right.” They said, “Have you got anyone who can prove this?”
I said, “Well, my mom.”
They said, “Someone else?”
I said, “What about a doctor, a psychiatrist, and a nurse?”
They said, “Yes.” And so they rang me about six weeks later and said, “We’ll have film crew in town in a couple of days. We want to film you.”
I said, “I don’t think so.”
I said, “I don’t want to be made a mockery of, because what I do is serious.”
They said, “We promise we won’t do that.”
That TV show – no word of a lie – I would’ve filled this room with letters ten times over. My husband went and picked a sack up from the post box every day and it was very overwhelming, and so I decided I wanted to hide.
There’s a reason why I’ve got this here. Responding to all of those people, I thought that I was obliged to give all of myself to those tens of thousands of people that wanted a piece of me, so I did. There was a consequence. I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in May 2000. The day after I had surgery I went to speak to my doctor and I couldn’t speak. I lost my voice for a year and I said to God, “If you let me speak again, live my passion, speak about it here today to inspire people to live their dreams and climb their mountains, I promise I’ll do that.”
We’ll fast forward to 2006. I’ve built my very first website. It was a clunky website, it’s still there, and it was through something called SiteBuilder. I’ve put a lot of my heart and soul into that and I thought I was doing pretty well. But I knew I needed something more.
Fast forward to 2008, Facebook changed my life. I know that sounds a pretty weird thing to say. My best friend from when I was 20 – and we had our babies together when I was 24 and 26 – found me on Facebook, exactly a month before there was one of this events. She got two tickets and she said, “Julie, would you like to come to Sydney with me to that event?” It was the very first Our Internet Secrets event that was like this.
I said, “Oh, I haven’t got any money. But I do have $400 to buy my passport so I can go to Thailand in two months. I’ll use that.” So I did. I spent my passport money and I went to Our Internet Secrets and I just kept saying, “Oh my God, oh my God! This is exactly what I’ve been asking for. God answers my prayers.” I joined Our Internet Secrets.
I’m going to fast forward to February, that’s five months later. You’re going to hear Daryl say something later and it might still hit thunder, but some people really bug her. I was one of them. I was still doing my research five months later. I never went to this event. This is part of the OIS program that they’ll talk to you about later. I was at that event. I didn’t have a topic. I didn’t know what I was going to write about. I was very confused in myself.
I spoke to Andrew and he said, “You need to go and speak to Paul Blackburn,” and I did. No word of a lie, in three minutes he changed my life. By the end of that first day, I had my topic. I went home, did some research on the Internet, and the next day I had a 30-day plan. In 30 days I created a product.
I went into a recording studio and I recorded ten healing mediations for before, during, and after surgery. I wrote an e-book, I outsourced the sales letter, and I had the project manage it because those guys at the recording studio said, “Sure, we’ll have that done in 48 hours,” they didn’t. I had to keep hassling them. Then they said, “Yes, we’ll get the guy to digitally master it. He’ll do that in 24 hours.” He didn’t. I’ve got everything on the 30th day. That was my target that I would submit everything to OIS tech is on the 30th day – and I did.
Thirty days later, I got my website back and I made my first sale overnight. Do you think I was a pretty happy cookie? I was. I’ve made some money from that product, but it’s not my best product and I need to market it more. Actually, here it is. It is actually a real live product. Who wants it? There you go.
Who knows Bret Thomson? He’s a copywriter extraordinaire. He’s an all-around good guy and you’re going to meet him this afternoon. I decided I wanted to be a little Bret Thomson wannabe, so I said, “Bret, are you going to teach this stuff that you do?” and he said, “Yes.” I said, “I want to be your first student.” I was one of his first students. I thought I was going to be Australia’s next best thing to women copywriting. I wasn’t.
I had big dreams in October 2009. I had no money. My clients were paying me $50 a consultation, I had a huge heart. I’ve made this deal with God that if He gave me back my voice that I would help people. I was really willing to learn. Andrew and Daryl provided that environment for me to learn and I’ll tell you what, I ate it, I slept it, I breathed it, and I did everything that they told me to do.
Guess what? I got offered a job with Andrew and Daryl and I became the OIS help desk manager in October 2009. I got trained for a few weeks and then I was on my own. I wrote this email to Daryl. I said, “Dear Daryl, you have the wrong person. I so cannot do this job. You’ll have to find someone else.” I went to press “Enter” and I couldn’t. I did that four times and I said, “Okay, maybe I’m not meant to quit this job,” but I did need some help.
I had a friend who had just become a hypnotherapist and I said, “You need to get here right now. I’m about to quit the best job in my life.” She actually drove over. I still had the emails open on my computer that I couldn’t answer. No word of a lie, she sat on my front veranda with me and did an intervention. Sounds cool. She left, I went back inside, I started answering those emails, and I didn’t stop.
I have had the most extraordinary journey with Andrew and Daryl. I love everything to do with Our Internet Secrets. That’s my favourite part on the website and anyone who’s had a welcome call with me will know that.
Andrew and Daryl – these are my mentors. I absolutely love the mentorship that they’ve given me and it’s transformed my life.
Janet Beckers – she’s one of the OIS Faculty members and you’ll hear a bit more about her. She’s the joint venture queen.
Guess what? I had a recruitment agency from Adelaide Facebook me privately (I didn’t know who they were) and said, “Can we do a joint venture with you? We wanted a joint venture on all of your products.”
I said, “But my website is not finished yet.”
“Oh, as soon as it’s done send it to us and we’ll put it on our website. We’ll market it to our thousands of people.” That just happened last week. Yes, thank you.
Gideon Shalwick – he’s another one of Our Internet Secrets Faculty members. He’s the video blogging expert and what he doesn’t know is not worth knowing.
You’ll see all these people later. They’re all my mentors.
Fast forward to September 2011, I had my first speaking gig with Adam Gibson. I spoke for 90 minutes, closed 50% of the room and made $5,000. I was very excited. I’ve never made that much money in that short a time in my life. In that moment I thought, you know what, I can do anything I want to do. I can make as much money as I want. I just have to put my heart and soul into it and ask for it.
Fast forward to April 2012, Celestial Consciousness Retreat. I didn’t follow Andrew and Daryl’s advice. I didn’t do the middle steps. I just went from the little product to the big product and I charged $3,300 for that. I sold out and I made $16,500 in a week. My next one is in November. I’m pretty excited about that. I went in two years from $50 a session, I now charge $497 a session and I have a monthly target of 20. Sometimes I make it, sometimes I do more, sometimes I do less, but it averages out.
You see that there? I said I wanted to go to the top of that. I’m afraid of heights and to get to the top of that I had to go in a cage that had just bars on it. We went half a kilometre up in the air and then the guy that took me up there said, “Now you have to get on that ladder that goes half a kilometre down and you have to climb another six feet to get right up to the rim up there.” It took him 20 minutes to get me to get on the ladder. Then I climbed and my head hit something. It hit a ceiling. They talk about a glass ceiling, I hit a wooden ceiling.
I said, “I can’t go any further.”
He said, “Sure you can.”
I said, “No, I can’t.”
He said, “That changed things. Well, you have to just come back down and step over that half a kilometre chasm and get back on here. We’ll have to wait for them to send us back down.”
I was stuck on that ladder for 25 minutes like this in my slippery hands. Anyway, he coaxed me back down. I always remember that when I think that I can’t do something. I saved my own life in that stupid thing that I did, but maybe it was one of the best things that I ever did. That was a moment.
I’m very excited to have pulled together my ultimate business model. My first tip is I’ll give away something for free. Oh, I’ve made a mistake. “Seven Steps to Celestial Consciousness.” I just started a meditation circle, it’s live online to anyone in the world and we discuss it afterwards in a special Facebook group. I do a one-day workshop on mastering intuition, because that’s what I’ve developed. I’ve developed my intuition to a really high regard. I’ve created a home study pack. There’s my six-day retreat. I do mentoring. I have my first mentoring client on Monday and she really loves that. Then I’ve got a high end mentoring program. I’m not going into what all of those are. I haven’t got any time.
Who wants to feel the love? Who wants to know how to stop psychic vampires from sucking your energy? I can teach you how to do that. I’ve got four eclasses. I sell them for $97. I’ll give you them for free.
This is my meditation room. This is the PowerPoint slide that comes up when I do the webinar, so everyone knows that I’m sitting in there recording this web meditation. I’ll give you the first one for free.
Vote for me if I have inspired you. Thank you, everyone.

Recently, we co-hosted a private 3 day workshop where Simon Bowen left no stone unturned and delivered a fast paced, dynamic workshop that pushed everyone that attended to think bigger and question traditional consulting models and practices with his unconventional but very effective approaches.
Simon has a habit of being the ‘Go-To’ expert that many high level CEO’s and directors go to when they need an outside opinion on important decisions. He’s consulted to large companies like Ford, IKEA, Mobil, Bunnings and BHP.
Although it was only a smaller group, it enabled Simon to reveal some of his best strategies in a safe environment and all the lucky attendees had all their questions answered in detail.
Some of the main highlights included:
– Simon’s major model of selling, how he uses it to win over competitive tenders with a high level of conversion
– How to leverage yourself as a consultant and not tie yourself down to being the bottleneck in your business
– Simon did several practical exercises demonstrating processes, team dynamics and operational inefficiencies and how simple shifts in strategy and approach can yield a much better result
– Andrew and Daryl chimed in with fantastic sessions on how to use the internet to leverage your consulting and optimising your mindset as a consultant
– The dinner at Amalfi’s on Saturday night was a big hit with many new friendships, relationships and future Joint Ventures formed
After the workshop, we had over 20 raving testimonials on how Simon facilitated, the content and the overall affect it would have on their bottom line. Thank you to all who came and we are glad you enjoyed the event. We do not have any future dates locked in for another event at this stage but we will be making the DVDs available at some point so do drop us a line if you’re interested in getting a copy (this event will not be included in OIS). See you at the next workshop!

One of the greatest things about being financially free is we get to do lots of travelling around the world with our kids. We also love the passive income and freedom that having a successful internet business brings.
One of our other passions is teaching other people how to achieve the same results. We get so much satisfaction and a real buzz out of seeing one of our students excel in their business and open up a world of financial independence.
The main way we’ve been able to teach people (as we don’t do one-on-one consulting anymore) is through our 4 Day workshops. We walk you through step by step exactly what we did, and by the end you have a takeaway strategy you can implement the very next day.
If you’ve never heard of us before and want to know what we’ll be teaching, here’s an outline of what we’ll be covering on each day:
DAY 1 – Friday 27 July. Today we’ll show you how to design your internet business. We see too many people get this bit horribly wrong! Either they leap in with no idea of what they’re going to do, and so they waste loads of time and money for no return. OR, they get so confused and overwhelmed that they don’t even know where to start.
If either of these is you, then by the end of this first day you’ll have a clear idea of why you’re getting online and what you’re going to sell. And most importantly, we’ll show you some quick, clever ways to research your niche so you can stand out from your competition.
DAY 2 – Saturday 28 July. Today is the nuts and bolts of building your internet business. We’ll show you how to create a website that gets people to take action – whether that’s to buy your product, come into your store, opt in to your list, or give you a call to place an order. We’re going to show you exactly what the best websites do to get great results. And we’ll give you loads of examples of the right and wrong ways to do it.
We’ll also show you how to write a winning sales letter. You know we have one sales letter that’s made us over a million dollars? We’ll show you how.
We then show you the very latest ways we’re using to drive loads of eager customers to our websites. We’ll show you in detail how we dominate page 1 of Google, use the latest in social media, set up high quality Joint Ventures, and loads more to quickly find hungry customers.
DAY 3 – Sunday 29 July. Today we finish off the process of building an online business by showing you how to tweak your website to get the most income out of it. That website that’s made us over a million dollars – would you believe we nearly canned it in the first few weeks? It wasn’t until we tweaked it (and we’ll show you how) that the money started flowing.
Then we show you something REALLY exciting – how you can supercharge the process, and create a 6 or 7 figure business in as little as 90 days. Over the last 4 years we’ve been involved in 15 of these businesses – at the workshop you’ll see why we think they’re the best thing since sliced bread!
DAY 4 – Monday 30 July. We know that none of this works without a success mindset, and a plan to make it all a reality. On this last day we show you the “secret sauce” that we add to all our internet businesses that makes them so successful. We first show you the techniques we use to identify and eliminate our subconscious blockages to being successful (yes, we’re still weeding them out!). Then we show you how we plan any new internet business so that we get the outcome (and the income!) we want from it. You’ll walk out at 5pm with a mini business plan, ready to start on Tuesday!
As you can see, the workshop is mainly us on stage, (except on the odd occasion where we bring in one of our faculty members to talk about stuff they’re better at!). It’s definitely NOT a sell-fest, with an unrelated series of 90 minute sales pitches!
We’ve had hundreds of raving testimonials from people in all industries, all ages and all walks of life.
We’ll do everything in our power to add as much value for you as possible. We always have lots of fun and give out lots of cool prizes – both big and small.
We look forward to seeing you there in person and helping you take your ideas and turn them into profits, so you can spend your time exactly how you want to.
Simply Register Here for your complimentary tickets (yes, they’re free!).

The recent Our Internet Secrets Event in March was a resounding success, with around 200 people joining us to experience Andrew and Daryl’s teachings.

Everyone that referred 10 or more people will receive the edited videos of the entire event for future reference. How cool is that!
After a close count, the winner of our referral competition is Kornelia Kecskes!
Her prize? The entire suite of Andrew and Daryl’s products, a huge pack of dvds, workbooks and CDs worth over $10,000!!!
Special mention to Heather and Eddie Kenyon & Carol Fisher and Keith Bostach,and Kerry Furlong and Sonya Humphrey who also had a great effort. We hope you enjoy the workshop videos!
