I picked up one of his famous quotes from the internet which made a lot of sense and has a lot of impact on online marketeers. Here it is:

“All you see is somebody sitting in a dentist chair after their procedure and they have a mirror up in front of their face. And you can just see them weeping tears of joy. They’re weeping tears of joy and you don’t even see the person’s teeth. He isn’t featuring the product that he actually delivers. He’s featuring the feeling that people get — which is what we’re really buying.”Ryan Deiss

Pat Flynn

I am sure you all know Pat Flynn, he is an American entrepreneur, blogger and podcaster known for his website Smart Passive Income where he shares income experiments. The main purpose of this website is to teach all his readers about proven strategies for running and maintaining an online business and at the same time optimizing it for passive income.

He is also an author of the best selling book ‘Let Go’, you can find it on Amazon for just $2.99. In 2008, he was laid off from his regular 9-5 job at an architectural firm, and all he had to his name was a blog with some irrelevant architectural notes. But he found that his blog was getting some serious traffic from other like-minded architects who used to come to his blog for exam-studies. That is when he made his smart move to organize his thoughts from notes and created a product out of it and sold it for some crazy money.

Now you know how much we will have to learn from this guru himself, so I would highly recommend anybody to follow his social profiles below and get to know what he has to share.

  1. Hi Praveen,

    Nice list.

    Though, very tough to say this who is the best in certain filed. With lots and lots of online marketers making a name in digital marketing today, coming up with a list like this will be a very tough task.

    I see marketers like John Chow, Brian Dean of Backlinko worthy of mention, my opinion, though.

    Anyway, thanks for sharing your list of favorite online marketers with us.

    1. Hello Shamsudeen,

      Welcome to DMC. Yes, you are right, there is no such thing as a ranking of first or second when you list all these wonderful inspiring people. It took me quite some time to narrow down to the Top 10 among the best internet marketing gurus I follow.

      Yes there are others whom we follow, I do follow Brian and John as well, it is just a start maybe, I will come up with a follow-up list to mention all others whom we look up for their advice and leadership.

      Thanks once again and hope to see you back soon.
