Business lessons from Barry Dunlop

Successful entrepreneur Barry Dunlop has done business in the real world and in the internet. Prior to his team-up with young internet buzz marketing specialist Dean Hunt, Dunlop owned a lead generation company for the home improvement industry.  He eventually met and joined forces with Hunt to start a buzz marketing website that offers valuable tips and techniques for generating unbelievable web traffic and profits. 

Having experienced success in both worlds, Dunlop’s thoughts about business are insightful.  In an online interview conducted by his own son, Michael, Dunlop mentioned the following:

Less is more:  With an online business, it is possible for you to make plenty of money even when you have little or no money at all.  The secret lies in buzz marketing which he and his partner, Hunt, teaches at

Winners are givers:  Dunlop believes that successful people should give back to society in order to receive more success.  Giving back need not be in the form of charity.  You can give of yourself to others by offering advice to inspire them to do the same.

Beware of energy vampires:   While Dunlop recommends you to share some of your time and wisdom to others who are struggling, he is cautious about being around people who use up most of your time feeding you with their problems which appear to be cyclical due to their own fault. These types go to you with the same problems even after you recommend a course of action because they are simply unable to do what needs to be done.  As you entertain them every time they seek your counsel, you waste your precious energy by dealing with the repetitive issues that seem to be unresolved.

Money energy attracts more money:   Dunlop repeats a line that he picked up from some of his readings, “The trick to money is to have some.”  He shares that he takes the money he earns from internet buzz marketing and invests it on properties and domain names. As a domain name investor, Dunlop purchased a lot of dot com domain names that he considers generic and valuable. He notes that the prices of domain names have dropped considerably making today the right time to buy as much domain names as you can.   He foresees that someone will need any of those names and want to buy it from you.

Take action:  It is not enough to know all there is to know about your business.  Dunlop insists that if you want to become the next success story in the internet business, you must take concrete steps towards your goal.
