Digital Gold Rush – Let’s Cash In!
I hope you are having a good day! I certainly enjoy my days working online cashing in on the digital gold rush.
What’s that, the digital gold rush? Well, you may know by now, if you have been following my daily blog posts, that I am a member of the Digital Experts Academy, positioned at the top of the product line.
All of us in the Digital Experts Academy are a bit obsessed with the Digital Gold Rush and all of the similarities it has to the original Californian Gold Rush…
The Digital Gold Rush presents us with many opportunities to transition into this developing digital economy and cash in. Two choices really, get left behind or read on to find out more…
Three Key Digital Gold Rush Points:
- Did you know that the World Wide Web was invented on the 150th anniversary of the California Gold Rush?
- Did you know that the vendors, merchants, and suppliers (those selling picks, shovels, etc.) made more money than the actual gold prospectors?
- Did you know that Levi Strauss was one such merchant? He traveled 18,000 miles by ship from New York city to open a merchant business that would import supplies and goods from the family business on the East coast!
Since 1989 a lot has happened and the Digital Economy has exploded with growth.
More recently in 2007, we all know what happened; the bottom fell out of the traditional economy. Those on the cutting-edge profited wildly while most were caught unaware.
The Digital Economy was less than 20 years old at that point and as you can see in thinfographic below, it literally EXPLODED with growth. No different than any other time in history, every major recession/depression simultaneously caused a new revolution… (more on this later).
This is what’s called the Digital Gold Rush (See below).
However, the Gold Rush itself isn’t where the big money is made!
Read this section carefully:
- This isn’t where the massive wealth creation opportunity lies for the members of our private digital marketing business system, SixFigure Mentors.
- This isn’t how our students have ALREADY earned in excess of $40m in profits.
The big money, the walk away income is going to come from those who are correctly positioned to take advantage of the Digital Marketing Arbitrage – helping people still stuck in the traditional “Titanic” economy transition to the digital economy. (See below)

Economist Paul Zane Pilzer predicts ten million new millionaires will be created within the next 10 years. How is this possible you ask? Just like this…
The secret to YOU being able to create a Digital Life is not to start your own business, invent your own product, or be the next Mark Zuckerberg per se. You don’t want to compete with Amazon, Google, or Facebook, or the zillions of tech startups arriving in the online world every day. You don’t want to compete with companies that are funded through venture capital with millions of dollars. You don’t want to compete with Harvard grads with a 170 IQ.
Really, it is no different from the original Gold Rush, when everyone was crawling over the next person prospecting and digging for gold. There is stiff competition online, there is no question about that.
But, here’s the million dollar secret: Stop digging! Start selling shovels!
Just as I mentioned above, more money was made by the middlemen – the merchants selling picks and shovels to the miners – than those digging, panning, and mining for gold. Do you understand what I am saying here?
Are you comprehending the lesson history has taught us already?
The big money is in servicing the Gold Rush, not competing in it!
More wealth was created servicing the Gold Rush than from the gold that was discovered. For example: Don’t dig for gold; instead sell picks and shovels. Don’t pan for gold; instead sell pans or teach people how to pan.
There will always be people creating solutions, products and services to meet other peoples’ problems, wants and needs.
More specifically, there are millions of people and businesses still stuck in the traditional economy. They need our help!
Digital Experts Academy Reseller
This is where YOU come in as an authorized DEA reseller (SFM Member).
Throughout history, there will always be middlemen connecting buyers and sellers.
These people are called merchants.
A retail merchant (or retailer) sells commodities to consumers (and businesses). A Six Figure Mentors member is such a merchant.
A SFM member connects people still struggling in the traditional economy with a solution that will help them make their business successful in the Digital Economy.
This solution is called the Digital Experts Academy.
Merchants have been playing this role for centuries, and this is one facet in the world of commerce that hasn’t changed. There is, however, an important twist in today’s digital economy. As a result of the Digital Revolution, every physical product that can be digitized will be digitized at some point. This is a foregone conclusion. What this means is that, as the physical world transitions to the digital world, there will be more and more opportunity for “digital merchants.”
In the digital economy, the connection between physical time and space has been severed. The connection between physical, tangible products and value has been erased. Herein lies an incredible opportunity for Six Figure Mentors members.
Think of the Internet as a giant farmers’ market, where people can come to buy and sell digital products. Unrestricted by physical location, supply chains, production and inventory there are billions of transactions a day. The transactions take place virtually and instantly.
This is where “digital merchants”, (also known as “affiliates”) come in. The affiliate simply connects the buyer with the seller and gets paid a profit instantly.
Unlike the merchants like Levi Strauss who traveled 18,000 miles from NYC to set up a supply business for the Gold Rush, there are no physical restrictions to trade and commerce within the digital economy.
Unlike the traditional economy where physical products are produced, shipped, and exchanged for local currency in physical locations and storefronts around the world, here there is no inventory per se.
Thanks to technology virtually anyone can create a digital product and sell it to anyone else connected to the Internet.
There are no physical or visible distribution channels (trucks, trains, planes, etc.) The customer chooses the product that he or she wishes to buy on the Internet, and the transaction takes place. The affiliate is invisible, and in most cases the buyer never even knows about the affiliate.
The affiliate didn’t create or produce the product. He/she didn’t stock, ship, or service it either. In most cases, he/she didn’t even create the marketing materials, or process the payment. All the affiliate did was connect the buyer with the seller and get paid a good commission.
- Digital publishing company Clickbank has paid out over $2.2 billion in commissions in the last 10 years.
- Our students have earned in excess of $40 million in the last few years alone…
Imagine getting a tiny slice of that!?
All of this is now possible thanks to the digital commerce (aka ecommerce).
Arguably, once you have learned digital marketing as a skill-set, you will be able to write your own check for life.
The reality is that most modern day merchants (affiliate marketers), never make any significant money. The competition is fierce and commissions are minuscule.
Enter the Six Figure Mentors
As a member of the SFM, most of the learning curves and costly mistakes are avoided. Instead of learning everything on your own, the SFM teaches you all of the skills, strategies, and techniques you require to become a successful reseller of the DEA product line – potentially earning thousands of dollars a month in commissions.
